Autism Brain-wave test?

"(CBS) Is help finally on the way for doctors looking for a way to diagnose autism in infants?
Scientists in Boston say they've come up with the beginnings of a noninvasive diagnostic test - one that spots abnormal brain waves that suggest increased risk for the debilitating neurological disorder.
Such a test - safe, inexpensive, and easy to perform - could make it possible for at-risk kids to get help right away rather than having to wait until months or years later, which is now the case with the behavioral tests now used.
In a recent study, the experimental test identified nine-month-olds at increased risk for autism with 80 percent accuracy, according to a written statement released by Children's Hospital Boston. The test involves computer analysis of brain wave signals captured by the standard test known as the electroencephalogram (EEG).
"Electrical activity produced by the brain has a lot more information than we realized," study author Dr. Wi…

People used to have to develop film to see pictures they took. They didn't' even know what the picture looked like until sometimes days later. Today we can see the picture we take seconds after we take it, delete it, or send it wire-lessly around the world.

I thankfully got into photography after this transition was already made and I learned photography at a much faster pace. You get better at taking pictures.. by taking.. pictures. So with Digital Cameras you can take literally thousands of pictures and see them, and improve in a much shorter time than you could when only film was available. Not only that but what I lack in skill with the camera I can make up for with a computer - touching it up, improving the colors and contrast, and even adding and taking away parts of the picture.

I grew up along side the digital age and we've always had a great relationship. Its something I just "get" and learn really quickly. When it comes to the more traditional and dare…

Man-Eating Elephant?!

Image
"After a rogue elephant killed 17 people in India, locals knew it had to be stopped. Once the animal was killed, DNA tests on the contents of its stomach revealed something even more terrifying: the elephant had consumed human flesh. According to zoologist Dave Salmoni, humans are to blame for the herbivore's shocking behavior. In this clip from his new TV show, he claims this particular man-eating elephant lashed out in an act of revenge after her calf was killed. Elephants have recently witnessed their homes destroyed to make room for crop fields. Raids have forced elephant herds to split up, and the animals can grow exhausted and increasingly stressed and in turn, aggressive. Elephants aren't the only ones reacting aggressively to human imposition. ABC News reports that in one part of India, tigers killed 14 people from just one village last year. The Bengal species is being threatened by rising sea levels and hunters encroaching on their territory. But when it comes to th…

No Brain Damage From Ecstasy, New Research Shows

"The common understanding, and certainly the argument from the anti-drug camp, has been that ecstasy can cause memory loss, pose a serious brain damage risk, and have long-lasting effects on behavior.
Researchers are quick to point out that despite the study's conclusion, ecstasy is still a dangerous drug. The illegal pills have no warning labels, and can contain a number of harmful contaminants.
Studies have also looked into MDMA-assisted psychotherapy as a possible treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The idea is to provide at least a brief experience of what life feels like without the aftermath of trauma, to provide a state in which learning can occur." Read More

MDMA started as a therapy drug and didn't become illegal until people started to use it recreation-ally. There has always been conflicting information about how much damage - if any it could cause. It had been described as relatively harmless to being like "Taking ice cream scoops out…

I'm re-re-fining the "Collectors Edition" of my book: Discovering Da Vinci's Daughter. 



Ever since I 'finished' it in 2007 there have been some additional revisions I wanted to make. Every time i've read it i've really liked it more and more but there are still some parts that bug me. Some errors, some repetitiveness, some sentences that don't make sense.

The reason(s) I haven't updated it sooner was because I was planning on re-writing the entire book mostly from scratch. So why spend the time to improve a book that was going to be a rough draft?

After a few months turned into a few years without anything available for sale on my site and some increase in interest -I decided to just put the old version for sale. Then at least people who wanted to could buy the book and I could make some income while I finished the re-write.

Its been a couple weeks now and i've sold two books! But since my book is self published and printed to order - the …

Sabotage

Image
I'm starting to realize that there is a glaring misconception that I have been ignoring.

You know how people seem to think that we should do the things that scare us? To face our fears and practice until we get perfect?

Well, what if that is just really - a total waste of time? Its quite obvious that people in the world are adept and totally willing to sabotage themselves and do things that make no sense what so ever. You see it on American Idol all the time. People who genuinely and completely think they have what it takes to become the next and greatest singer in the country. But they are very bad and have absolutely NO chance.

When they leave they tell themselves - "Well its' those judges they dont know what they are saying!" Or "I'm going to go home and practice everyday and come back next year, then i'll make it!"

They could get better, they could spend a LOT of time, all their time working at it, but .. they will never be able to get to a poin…

It wouldn't matter what the hype or reviews or even what the trailer looked like - I would go see any x-men movie. This is even better than expected. Finally- something to look forward to!

"These are the miracles" the Sfumato Effect

"Mon Salai" the Name Game

Image
This animation shows the painting of Salai combining with the Mona Lisa.

Why would Leonardo intend for this to happen? -explanation

"It's just a coincidence!" - refutation 



The "supposed" sitter's name was " Lisa del Giocondo" or "La Gioconda" or  "Lisa Gherardini"


The title of "Mona Lisa" before it was called "Mona Lisa" was: La Gioconda or La Joconde


"Gian Giacomo Caprotti" 's nickname was Salai.


Salai Giacomo - Lisa Gioconda


Mona Lisa is an anagram for Mon Salai (My Salai in French)

Or possibly M (Mona) on Salai (Salai's portraits)

Salai - was the name used most in all of da Vinci's thousands of journals
If it seems complicated and coincidental it's because it is. These "Name Games" are even more complicated than that. 
Although it could be coincidental - it's definitely not. The titles and names were specifically chosen and designed to be clues for someone to figure this …

Several years ago I almost had a brush with devastating success. I went online and saw a headline story that announced a new discovery about a  mirroring technique that reveals hidden images in Leonardo da Vinc's last supper. One hidden image was of a baby. 


OMG!!!!! Finally!  Someone went to my site and released what I found, I knew it would be headline news! Maybe Oprah finally got my email, was it Ellen? Was it one of the dozens of emails I sent out to news papers? Was it the packets with cds and pictures and book samples that I sent to Times - National Geographic? The Discovery Channel? Maybe the $400 we spent on a professionally released and written press releases were picked up????!! 

Then I clicked on it.....
-Stunned silence-. The article was not about me, or my book. But it WAS about my discovery and what already was IN my book, and what had been on my web site for over a year PREVIOUSLY. 
What? How could this be? That's suppose to be me! 
But wait, what's this? A new …

If you are new to my "blook" then this is a summary/ preview of what it's about: Also go to my web site itsjustlife.com for more details
Here is a sneak peek into the various chapters and discoveries that are included in  "Discovering Da Vinci's Daughter"(collectors edition) (Cover)

The Cartoon of St. Ann. This proves that Leonardo implemented a mirroring technique to hide additional images in his art. I'm calling it the Sfumato Effect. Click HERE to see an animation showing what I mean. It's explained thoroughly in my book. 
This is the painting of St. Ann by da Vinci. When the technique is applied there are numbers and letters that are revealed. I'm not totally sure what they mean but seem to be directions or coordinates to further the effect and unlock addition hidden images. I'll be posting more about this and examples of the hidden images on my site soon!

Discovering Da Vinci's Daughter

Two days ago I checked my web site and for some reason the traffic went up 1000xs from it's average 40hits a day to over 4000. I was like, wtf is going on?! I didn't know why, I thought "my day" had finally come and someone posted an new article about me/ my book/ or my discoveries.  I checked where the traffic was coming from and it wasn't from anything about me, it was about someone else releasing the same theory that I have had on my web site and in my book for 5 years.

"Mona Lisa was a boy?" "Mona Lisa was Da Vinci's gay lover?" "Mona Lisa was inspired by Salai?"
The Following links are only a few out of the dozens that are popping up all over the world.
