Amazon Gold Ventures is pleased to announce that the company is completing listing requirements with the Frankfurt market to gain a listing on the exchange. Amazon Gold Ventures has announced plans to list on a major stock exchange, namely the GermanFrankfurt exchange. The listing process is currently well under way and the company is looking forward to releasing further details in the very near future. About Amazon Gold: Amazon Gold Ventures Ltd. is in the process of identifying and qualifying existing independent goldmining operations in Colombia, Peru and Brazil. Through our associates and partners, the Company provides a team of engineers and mining industry experts to enable and assist growth directly in exchange for co-ownership and royalties in each mine or exploration project. The Company is primarily focused on partnering solely with operating gold mining projects and ventures, which have already completed the exploration phase of their operation. Once engaged, to enhance and maximize resources in the field, the Company compiles and reviews basic information records and geological-mining cartography structured and supported on new Geographic Information Systems (GIS) where data relating to mines in operations, historical production, reserves, free areas and environmental restrictions can be readily found, as well as geological maps, mining charts, and mineral occurrence charts in concert with current operators. Over the next three years, we will be partnering with an array of mines located in Colombia, Peru and Brazil. The Company will qualify each project or venture by reviewing claims and existing operations on a territory-by-territory basis. http://www.amazongoldventures.com/

I want this map so badly, as it mixes some things I absolutely love: languages, etymology, and geography. This atlas reveals the original names and meanings of familiar places around the globe, as painstakingly researched by two German cartographers. Whether it's Chicago's original name of "Stink Onion" or, even better, Yucatan -- which translates in Mayan to "I don't understand," this is a work of genius.

They were made when the world was something magical, and no one knew what might lay over the horizon. Back then going to sea was risky business, and you might not be the same when you came back. Show your love of the old sea-faring spirit with this tee. Normally I'm not a fan of cream or white shirts, but there's no other way to properly display this, unless it involves a pan filled with tea and a few matches.
