    The symbol he thought of could have been the little atom or what you would see for radiation.

    I think IYP = International Year of the Potato.

    International Year of the Potato

    Read the part about the potato being a symbol.

    Default Iyp

    Other IYPs could be International Year of Peace. The logo is two hands releasing a dove. There are some olive branches too. And there is also the International Year of Physics, the International Year of Planet Earth, and the International Year of Youth. But I think the Potato is our best contender. Just read the slogan. (On a previous post, I tried to post the logo for the International Year of the Potato, but it doesn't look like it appeared.)

    Whoops! Don't know why I put International Year of Youth in there. It doesn't begin with a P, does it?!

    I remember FoxyKeys posted some suggestions for IYP (including Intl. Year of Peace and Intl. Year of the Potato, and one other one, I forget which) and Domino posted that one of those was correct.

    Whatever the IYP is, I guess there's supposed to be some symbol related to it that connects to the puzzle somehow... maybe it's the Potato, but can we think of any potato-related symbols? The reason I was thinking it was Intl. Year of Peace was that the Wikipedia article about it mentions the Red Cross--making it seem to me that it was somehow connected to the Red Cross. I'm not clear on what the Red Cross had to do with it. But anyway, the Red Cross is the same cross symbol as in the brand circle on page 24.

    I copied and pasted this directly from the article, but I added the bold for emphasis:

    Symbols

    The official International Year of the Potato logo consists of two elements: a bowl of potatoes that were harvested or cooked; and a golden tuber growing in the earth. These elements symbolize the connections between the earth or ground and the supply of food and between humanity and agriculture.

    The official slogan is "Hidden Treasure". These words highlight two important aspects of the potato. Firstly, that the edible part of the plant grows and remains hidden below the ground until it is harvested. Secondly, that the potato's importance as a source of food in the economy and as a pillar of global food security is often overlooked.

    Very good find Beth. Love the Hidden treasure reference This chapter also has the Wingdings and Wingdings 2 fonts shifted over. Perhaps there is a tie in to the shift and the # of letters underlined for each word -

    I'm thinking the shifts + the underlines must be some of the layers....

    Hi Spiggan,

    Did you know there is a Potato Song? Cheryl Wheeler wrote it .... 2005 or 2008 to celebrate the tuber. Apparently, she sang it with the Mexican Hat Dance tune. The most interesting part of the song was the 10X4 pattern of the chorus that was produced.

    po ta to po ta to po ta to po
    ta to po ta to po ta to po ta
    to po ta to po ta to po ta to
    po ta to po ta to po ta to

    Just interesting. For some time, I thought Domino liked my reference to IYP as Internet Yellow Pages. I thought, then I was onto something. These days, I just feel like a spud...

    Still having fun. Just finished my second book, Foxy Tail, The Search... AND ....multi-tasking on this hunt as well!

    Beth
