Brand logos with hidden messages

Amazon – Besides showing a smiley face indicating to customer satisfaction, the arrow below the word ’amazon’ points from A to Z, which is a variety of products that Amazon offers.

 BMW – this logo stays true to the company’s aerial history: the white sections represent a rotating propeller, whereas the blue sections represent the sky.

 Cisco – since the company is from San Francisco, the blue lines represent Golden Gate bridge, whereas the name itself is short for the city of San Francisco.

Formula 1 – another great example of good usage of negative space: the number 1 is formed between the black letter F and the red lines which represent speed. 

Gillette – razors obviously cut everything perfectly, including Gillette logo whose letters G and L have been cut with precision, representing product sharpness.


 Le Tour de France – the logotype does not only contain letters, but they form a bicycle and a cyclist whose front wheel is actually the sun.

Pinterest – the letter P in the logotype is stylized so as to form a pin, which is exactly what this growing network’s users do with the images on their boards.

 Toblerone – there’s a bear hiding in the mountains of Toblerone logo. It symbolizes Bern, the capital of Switzerland which is known as the city of bears, and exactly where the company was founded.

Amazing facts of WW2

The Second World War was arguably the most significant period of the 20th century. It brought about major leaps in technology and laid the groundwork that permitted post-war social changes including the end of European colonialism, the civil rights movement in the United States, and the modern women’s rights movement, as well as the programs for exploring outer space. The primary combatants were the Axis nations (Nazi Germany, Facist Italy, Imperial Japan and their smaller allies) and the Allied nations, led by Britain (and its Commonwealth nations), the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and the United States of America.

Canada produced more trucks than Germany, Italy and Japan COMBINED. For every aircraft shot down in battle, another aircraft was lost due to a accident. The British were able t…

10 Bloodiest Battles of World War II

10. Battle of Monte Cassino, 17 January–18 May 1944: 185,000 casualtiesWaged between the Allies and the joint German and Italian troops in the early part of 1944, the Battle of Monte Cassino was one of the hardest fought battles of the Second World War. The main objective for the Allied forces fighting their way up from Southern Italy was to break through the Germans’ Gustav Line — a series of military fortifications running across Italy — and gain control of Rome. Named after the 1,400-year-old monastery of Monte Cassino that stood at the center of the German defensive line (and which was controversially destroyed by American bombers during the battle), the fighting was made up of four smaller battles that took place in January, February, March and May, respectively. The eventual capture of Rome came at a high price, with at least 125,000 casualties on all sides — and as many as 185,000 by some estimates.
