Marketing has significantly affected the image of diamond as a valuable commodity. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0802713688/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0802713688&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=51518532ca9e4d54418334353e4d986f N. W. Ayer & Son, the advertising firm retained by De Beers in the mid-20th century, succeeded in reviving the American diamond market. And the firm created new markets in countries where no diamond tradition had existed before. N. W. Ayer's marketing included product placement, advertising focused on the diamond product itself rather than the De Beers brand, and associations with celebrities and royalty. Without advertising the De Beers brand, De Beers was advertising its competitors' diamond products as well. De Beers' market share dipped temporarily to 2nd place in the global market below Alrosa in the aftermath of the global economic crisis of 2008, down to less than 29% in terms of carats mined, rather than sold. The campaign lasted for decades but was effectively discontinued by early 2011. De Beers still advertises diamonds, but the advertising now mostly promotes its own brands, or licensed product lines, rather than completely "generic" diamond products. The campaign was perhaps best captured by the slogan "a diamond is forever". This slogan is now being used by De Beers Diamond Jewelers, a jewelry firm which is a 50%/50% joint venture between the De Beers mining company and LVMH, the luxury goods conglomerate. Brown-colored diamonds constituted a significant part of the diamond production, and were predominantly used for industrial purposes. They were seen as worthless for jewelry (not even being assessed on the diamond color scale). After the development of Argyle diamond mine in Australia in 1986, and marketing, brown diamonds have become acceptable gems. The change was mostly due to the numbers: the Argyle mine, with its 35,000,000 carats (7,000 kg) of diamonds per year, makes about one-third of global production of natural diamonds; 80% of Argyle diamonds are brown. Historically, diamonds were found only in alluvial deposits in Guntur and Krishna district of the Krishna River delta in Southern India. India led the world in diamond production from the time of their discovery in approximately the 9th century BC to the mid-18th century AD, but the commercial potential of these sources had been exhausted by the late 18th century and at that time India was eclipsed by Brazil where the first non-Indian diamonds were found in 1725. Currently, one of the most prominent Indian mines is located at Panna. Diamond extraction from primary deposits (kimberlites and lamproites) started in the 1870s after the discovery of the Diamond Fields in South Africa. Production has increased over time and now an accumulated total of 4,500,000,000 carats (900,000 kg) have been mined since that date. Twenty percent of that amount has been mined in the last five years, and during the last 10 years, nine new mines have started production; four more are waiting to be opened soon. Most of these mines are located in Canada, Zimbabwe, Angola, and one in Russia. In the U.S., diamonds have been found in Arkansas, Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana. In 2004, the discovery of a microscopic diamond in the U.S. led to the January 2008 bulk-sampling of kimberlite pipes in a remote part of Montana. Today, most commercially viable diamond deposits are in Russia (mostly in Sakha Republic, for example Mir pipe and Udachnaya pipe), Botswana, Australia (Northern and Western Australia) and the Democratic Republic of Congo. In 2005, Russia produced almost one-fifth of the global diamond output, reports the British Geological Survey. Australia boasts the richest diamantiferous pipe, with production from the Argyle diamond mine reaching peak levels of 42 metric tons per year in the 1990s. There are also commercial deposits being actively mined in the Northwest Territories of Canada and Brazil. Diamond prospectors continue to search the globe for diamond-bearing kimberlite and lamproite pipes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diamond

Note: just because it’s found on earth, doesn’t mean it’s from it! 10. Tanzanite 9. Grandiderite 8. Black Opal 7. Taaffeite 6. Alexandrite 5. Musgravite 4. Painite 3. Serendibite 2. Red Diamonds, Pink Star Diamond 1. Jadeite Poudretteite This mineral was first found during the mid-1960’s in the Poudrette quarry of Mont Saint-Hilaire, Quebec. However, it wasn’t until 1987 that the poudretteite was fully recognized as a new mineral. Even then, this mineral wasn't described in depth until 2003. As stated by several different sources, it’s believed that only a relative few will ever come into contact with this mineral and let alone ever even hear it mentioned. Grandidierite This is considered to be an extremely rare mineral and gem that was first seen in 1902 on the Island of Madagascar. It was named in honor after the French explorer Alfred Grandidier who once studied the island’s natural history. Grandidierite comes in a bluish-green color and is located almost entirely in Madagascar, although, there was a clean faceted sample that was found in Sri Lanka. Grandidierite is also pleochroic, which means it's able to absorb different wavelengths of light differently and that results in different colors, such is the same ability with the gems tanzanite and alexandrite. Painite This gemstone was first discovered back in the 1950’s in Myanmar by a British mineralogist named Arthur C. D. Pain. For the next several decades only two fragments of the hexagonal mineral were known to exist on earth. By the time the year 2005 rolled around, there were still less than 25 discovered pieces of painite and The Guinness Book of World Records had declared it the world's rarest gemstone mineral. However, that was 11 years ago and since then the origin of the original stones has been found, along with two other major locations that have led to the discovery of thousands of small samples of painite fragments. Even so, they’re still considered one of the world’s rarest minerals. Ammolite This rare gemstone can be found mainly in the eastern region of the Rocky Mountains of North America. Ammolite is an opal-like gemstone that is solely made up of the fossilized shells of extinct animals known as ammonites. This makes ammolite one of the few biogenic gemstones that exist, along with pearls and amber. Ammolites weren’t officially recognized as gemstones until 1981 when they were given official status by the World Jewellery Confederation. That’s also the same year that commercial mining for ammolite began. Tanzanite It’s been said that tanzanite is 1,000 times rarer than a diamond, which might as well be the case considering the fact that it can be found almost entirely near the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. This is where the perfect conditions lie in order to form the mineral. Like grandidierite, tanzanite is able to produce striking shifts in color based on the crystal’s orientation and the certain lighting conditions. Caltech's geology division states this is because the color variations are caused by the existence of vanadium ions. Red Diamonds Did you know that diamonds come in a variety of colors? In fact, diamonds can range from being yellow, brown, colorless, blue, green, black, pink, orange, and red. That’s also the same order of how rare each diamond is classified as with yellow being the least and red being the most. Not only that but diamonds are also the hardest natural substances that form here on earth. Just like the colorless diamond, the red diamond is made purely out of carbon, however, what gives the diamond its red color is actually a deformation of their atomic structure that’s known as a “plastic deformation”. The Moussaieff Red is the largest red diamond in the world among the little known other red diamonds that have been discovered.

The Kimberly Diamond Mine Museum in South Africa. This is where diamonds were discovered in 1879. De Beers eventually stopped mining the pit which was allowed to fill with water and dug shafts down into the diamond-bearing rocks below. They stopped mining altogether in 1914 and this is now part of a museum. The city of Kimberly is on the horizon. De Beers headquarters is still in Kimberly.

Who owns the FED and controls the US government through the economy. The Rothschilds and the Bank of England. The Rothschild Group controls governments, (the USA through the privately-owned Federal Reserve System) Its no big mystery now. The US Congress gave control of the goverment over to the (FED) private banks which means our country is not controlled by American citizens. (The Congress can take control away from the (FED) private bankers but they never will because the Congress is infested with politicians under the direct control of the FED,CFR etc. Many members of the Congress do the bidding of the CFR) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The underpinning of all major Multi-National Corporations begins with the Rothschild Banking & Mining interests: * Rothschild Group: Headquartered in London. Finances (in their words) "governments, corporations throughout the world" Here. The Rothschild Group has 47 offices world wide which include New York, Washington DC, Paris, Frankfort, Amsterdam, Rome, Johannesburg, Tel Aviv, Tokyo, Madrid, and Hong Kong. ~ Under David RenÃ© James de Rothschild, (b 1942), son of Guy de Rothschild (1909-2007), the Rothschild Group controls governments, (the USA through the privately-owned Federal Reserve System), financial institutions, mining industries, and Multi-National Corporations throughout the world. * De Beers Mining: Headquartered in Zurich Switzerland. Mines both gold and diamonds primarily in South Africa. (De Beers will not officially admit to "gold mining" because they fear accusations of being in control of the "gold standard.") ~ Offices world-wide include London, Johannesburg, Canada, Australia, Angola, India, and Brazil. David RenÃ James de Rothschild is Chairman Here. Nicky Oppenheimer is Co-Chairman Here. ~ Not only do the Rothschilds control the mining of South African gold through De Beers, they also control its price. In London, all gold bullion passes through the hands of three firms who govern the price of gold from day to day. These are N. M. Rothschild & Sons, Mocatta & Goldsmid, and Samuel Montagu & Co Here. ~ Together with the Oppenheimer family, the Rothshilds through their French subsidiary Imetal S.A. once again, under David RenÃ James de Rothschild, have mining interests not only in iron, platinum, copper, zinc, tin, and coal throughout the world. //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Chart of who "owns" the Federal Reserve Chart 1 Federal Reserve Directors: A Study of Corporate and Banking Influence Published 1976 Chart 1 reveals the linear connection between the Rothschilds and the Bank of England, and the London banking houses which ultimately control the Federal Reserve Banks through their stockholdings of bank stock and their subsidiary firms in New York. The two principal Rothschild representatives in New York, J. P. Morgan Co., and Kuhn,Loeb & Co. were the firms which set up the Jekyll Island Conference at which the Federal Reserve Act was drafted, who directed the subsequent successful campaign to have the plan enacted into law by Congress, and who purchased the controlling amounts of stock in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in 1914. These firms had their principal officers appointed to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors and the Federal Advisory Council in 1914. In 1914 a few families (blood or business related) owning controlling stock in existing banks (such as in New York City) caused those banks to purchase controlling shares in the Federal Reserve regional banks. Examination of the charts and text in the House Banking Committee Staff Report of August, 1976 and the current stockholders list of the 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks show this same family control.

The Traders: Insider Canada's Stock Markets by Alexander Ross is a book you probably haven't heard of. Written in the mid-1980s, it has to be the #1 overview of Canadian Finance, with some interesting stories on history, mining, and the various players in the Canadian financial world. #1 Financial History of Canada from the 1960s to 1980s, with a lot of history going back much further than that. You can find a used copy for ~$10 or less, at links like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Traders-Inside-Canadas-Stock-Market/dp/000217460X/ ISBN: 0-00-217460-X There are tons of stories that are likely unique to this book, facts you probably can't find on the internet.

He still runs Friedberg Mercantile Group: http://www.friedberg.ca/content/index.html and even has his own Economics institute and Youtube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4h1jQN3qZaeohXHIqQ9SDw You can also check out some previous videos I mentioned related to this book: The Money Game - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJHrxHLZw-o Hemlo - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WeTzt8gw2LI Oh, and shout-out to Tommy Humphreys at CEO.CA who indirectly got me to read this a 2nd time by posting this picture a few months ago! http://cdn.ceo.ca/1ccr3m1-IMG_1351.JPG Will complete a list of more people mentioned in the book soon: Murray Pezim Morton Shulman

According to celebrity dot money, it is estimated that the total amount of Alex Debogorski's net worth, as of late 2017, exceeds the sum of 700,000 dollars, acquired through his now over 36 years-long truck driving career, and TV appearances. Alex was one of five children of Irene and Stanley Debogorski, and is of British and Polish descent. He grew up on a farm, and later enrolled at the University of Alberta. Prior to discovering truck driving as his life calling, Alex worked on several jobs, including positions such as a club bouncer, taxi driver, coal miner, oil rigger as well as a tire store proprietor. For some time he was a diamond prospector, as well as a mobile homes ’flipper’. All these jobs provided the basis of Alex Debogorski's net worth, as well as an opportunity to eventually buy his first truck in 1980. Although he began his truck driving career in the early 1980s, Alex only came to prominence in 2006 when he was approached by History Channel's film crew with an offer to join the cast of the new reality TV show - "Ice Road Truckers". The show, which began airing in June 2007, follows the lives, daily activities and routines of truck drivers operating on seasonal routes in Canada's remote Arctic territories, abundant with frozen roads, lakes and rivers. Alex featured as one of the show's main figures throughout its ten seasons before the show was discontinued in December 2016. Not only that, this engagement has helped him to reach legendary driver status, and has also provided the majority of Alex Debogorski's revenues over the past 10 years, so significantly increasing his net worth. Apart from the show, Alex is not just a regular trucker, he is also a public speaker focused on topics such as risk taking and change management, as well as treasure hunting. In 2010, Alex released his first book - "King of the Road: True Tales from a Legendary Ice Road Trucker", a biographical mix of Alex's stories, anecdotes as well as his childhood memories. Alex also regularly contributes articles to local newspaper "The Yellowknifer". It is certain that these accomplishments have helped Alex Debogorski to further increase the size of his wealth. Despite not being able to watch him anymore on "Ice Road Truckers", Alex will likely stay remembered as the show's most respected driver, of the most charismatic persona with his never-ending stories as well as his infectious laugh. When it comes to his personal life, Alex has been married since 1972 to Louise with whom he has 11 children. When he is not on the road, he resides with his large family, currently including 14 grandchildren and counting, in Yellowknife, in Canada’s North West Territories.

Ice Road Truckers Documentary - Danger In The Icy Road - Classic History Ice Road Truckers (commercially abbreviated IRT) is a reality television series that premiered on History, on June 17, 2007. It features the activities of drivers who operate trucks on seasonal routes crossing frozen lakes and rivers, in remote Arctic territories in Canada and Alaska. Later series focused on Alaska's improved but still remote Dalton Highway, which is mainly snow-covered solid ground. The newest seasons are based on Manitoba's winter roads. In 2000, History aired a 46-minute episode titled "Ice Road Truckers" as part of the Suicide Missions (later Dangerous Missions) series. Based on Edith Iglauer's book Denison's Ice Road, the episode details the treacherous job of driving trucks over frozen lakes, also known as ice roads, in Canada's Northwest Territories. After 2000, reruns of the documentary were aired as an episode of the series Modern Marvels instead. Under this banner, the Ice Road Truckers show garnered very good ratings. In 2006, The History Channel hired Thom Beers, owner of Original Productions and executive producer of Deadliest Catch, to create a series based on the Ice Road book. Shot in high definition (although the season ended before History HD was launched in the US), the show "charts two months in the lives of six extraordinary men who haul vital supplies to diamond mines and other remote locations over frozen lakes that double as roads".

September 25, 2013 - How has Eurocentric anthropology and linguistics affected the way we interpret our elders and ancestors who share their cultural knowledge with foreign researchers? Join us for a presentation with Khelsilem Rivers and April Charlo, indigenous peoples from community-based and cultural revitalization backgrounds, who will be discussing decolonization of language revitalization. Their presentation and open dialogue will address the context of rapid language loss and decline, and how colonization has affected or is embedded in the strategies of revitalization. In an effort to revitalize Indigenous languages, communities may have unknowingly adopted or assimilated colonized ways of thinking as they invest interest and attempt to repair or restore ties to culture and language. Are we learning to speak Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyawēwin, Kanien'kéha, et all with an English-mind or are we learning to speak Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyawēwin, Kanien'kéha with a Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyaw, Kanien'keháka mind? Indigenous languages represent one of the darkest ways in which ethnocide and cultural genocide have occurred. It is expected in the next twenty-five years over 700 of the worlds Indigenous languages will be forgotten. In the Vancouver area alone, the two Indigenous languages are considered critical endangered; Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) language has five to seven fluent speakers and hən̓q̓əmin̓əm has one fluent speaker left. Decolonizing Language Revitalization aims to put forward perspectives of shifting values, cultural understandings, and impacts on community. It is the stories we tell ourselves (as a people) that impacts who we believe we are, and then who we become. But if the stories -- even including, or especially the Indigenous ones -- are filtered through colonialism, we have become a different people because of it. April Charlo from Bitterroot Salish people and is a member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, Montana. Khelsilem Rivers is a Sḵwx̱wú7mesh-Kwakwa̱ka̱'wakw language revitalization activist from Vancouver.

Friday, February 20, 2015 Perspectives on Native Representations Symposium: Keynote Speaker Panel Dr. Adrienne Keene, Migizi Penseneau & Matika Wilbur While the history between Native peoples and representations of identity projected upon them (having been replicated and reinforced in popular culture) is layered and complex, the rise of technology and social media has ushered in an era of accessible activism that pushes against this history. Native peoples across the world now have practicable, highly visible modes to express unique voices that challenge and redefine how Natives are represented both internal and external of their communities. "Perspectives on Native Representations" seeks to highlight the multiple contexts through which representations of Native communities, culture and individuals are being shifted and re-imagined.

But it has grown into a large indigenous movement, with protests and ceremonial gatherings held almost daily in many of the country's major cities. The movement is spearheaded by Theresa Spence, the leader of the Attawapiskat, a small native band in northern Ontario. Spence is now 22 days into a hunger strike on Ottawa's Victoria Island just across from the Canadian Parliament. At Al Jazeera English, we focus on people and events that affect people's lives.

Free News Sharing and On-Line Art Gallery http://www.ciactivist.org FEATURE: The 2016 Fire and Rain art project that began in early January was inspired by news stories on wildfires that burned throughout Western Canada in 2015. Paintings were displayed outdoors publicly throughout Edmonton and their stories shared on YouTube. I used art from the beginning to defend freedom of expression on the Alberta Legislature grounds when it was verbally banned 3 times by Legislature officials. Some of the YouTubes published shared how the wildfires and flooding that followed affected Albertans, their communities and the environment. I hope my art and the stories shared will inspire us to contemplate the calamities in Alberta of 2016 as a collective and together help each other find ways and better solutions to save our planet and our children's future.

On December 4, 2012, the Union of Ontario Indians HIV/AIDS program will launch a new video called "The River of Healing." The Union of Ontario Indians HIV/AIDS program coordinator Jody Cotter produced the video that focuses on harm reduction in drug use. "We focus on positive solutions such as youth prevention programs and strategies that help educate our people on the prevention of transmittable diseases such as Hepatitis C and HIV through unsafe drug use," says Cotter. "The video emphasizes the positive effects, such as healing, that can be brought about through effective methods of harm reduction. The aim of this video is to reduce the stigma and discrimination associated with drug use in our communities."

Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by the Museum of Anthropology. "Assert, Defend, Take Space: Aboriginal Youth Conference on Identity, Activism and Film" was a day-long conference on issues of concern to Aboriginal youth. Artists from the Claiming Space: Voices of Urban Aboriginal Youth exhibition were joined by young filmmakers and activists from across Canada. Building off of the screened films, panelists discussed themes of youth identity and politics, the objectification of Indigenous women, and environmentalism and youth activism. "Claiming Space: Voices of Urban Aboriginal Youth" is an exhibition that looked at the diverse ways urban Aboriginal youth are asserting their identity and affirming their relationship to both urban spaces and ancestral territories. Unfiltered and unapologetic, over 20 young artists from across Canada, the US, and around the world define what it really means to be an urban Aboriginal youth today. In doing so they challenge centuries of stereotyping and assimilation policies. This exhibit will leave visitors with the understanding that today's urban Aboriginal youth are not only acutely aware of the ongoing impacts of colonization, but are also creatively engaging with decolonizing movements through new media, film, fashion, photography, painting, performance, creative writing and traditional art forms. Artists in the exhibition include Alison Bremner (Tlingit), Deanna Bittern (Ojibwe), Jamie Blankenship-Attig (Nlaka’pamux, Secwepemc, Nez Perce, Muskoday Cree), Kelli Clifton (Tsimshian), Jeneen Frei Njootli (Vuntut Gwitchin), Ippiksaut Friesen (Inuit), Clifton Guthrie (Tsimshian), Cody Lecoy (Okanagan/Esquimalt), Arizona Leger (Fijian, Samoan, Tongan, Maori), Danielle Morsette (Stó:lō /Suquamish), Ellena Neel (Kwakwaka'wakw/Ahousaht), Zach Soakai (Tongan, Samoan), Diamond Point (Musqueam), Crystal Smith de Molina (Git’ga’at), Nola Naera (Maori), Kelsey Sparrow (Musqueam/Anishinabe), Cole Speck (Kwakwaka'wakw), Rose Stiffarm ((Siksika Blackfoot, Chippewa Cree, Tsartlip Saanich, Cowichan, A'aninin, Nakoda, French, & Scottish), Taleetha Tait (Wet’suwet’en), Marja Bål Nango (Sámi, Norway), Harry Brown (Kwakwaka'wakw), Anna McKenzie (Opaskwayak Cree, Manitoba), Sarah Yankoo (Austrian, Scottish, Algonquin, Irish and Romanian), Raymond Caplin (Mi’gmac), Emilio Wawatie (Anishanabe) and the Northern Collection (Toombz/Shane Kelsey [Mohawk], and the Curse/Cory Golder [Mi’maq]).

I sometimes find caves or mines in the desert, though I never enter these since I'm always alone, and my emergency satellite beacon won’t function underground. I'm certain that many of the mines I’ve discovered in the more remote areas are utterly forgotten, and haven’t been visited for decades, or maybe more than a century. Whenever I peer into these inky black holes, I wonder what surprises might be waiting beyond the last rays of sunlight penetrating a few tens of feet into the interior. In this video, I think we can actually make out some old heavy timbers resting in a jumble just beyond the last rays of light. Look closely when I zoom in and see if you can spot them. While living in Japan, I sometimes discovered very old and long abandoned gold mines in the rugged mountains of the Southern Alps on the main island of Honshu. The gold mines of this region were active during the samurai period, producing ore to fund the government of Japan’s greatest feudal lord, the famous Shogun, Tokugawa Ieyasu (the main Japanese character of James Clavell’s book Shogun was modeled after this man). These mines were dug by hand from the hard volcanic rock, and the remains of these mines can still be found deep in the mountains along remote canyons and waterways. Absolutely nobody goes to these places now, and I’m confident I was often the first visitor to many of these old Japanese mines in many centuries. As in the United States, I never entered Japanese mines for the same fact of being alone, and without any means of summoning help should something go wrong. Mines and caves in both America and Japan may contain hazardous wildlife. Desert mines and caves are sometimes home to rattlesnakes and black widow spiders, and I’m always on the lookout for these as I poke and peer around the entrance of a new discovery. The mines and caves of Japan though were much scarier, as they are sometimes inhabited by aggressive Moon Bear or wild boar, both of which will not hesitate to attack and kill anyone who gets too close. For this reason, while living and exploring in Japan, I picked up a curious habit of talking loudly in bad Japanese while approaching caves and mines to avoid taking boar or bear by surprise. For the record, I only met a Moon Bear once (not in a cave), which I’m happy to report retreated at the sound of my voice. However, the one time I met a wild boar (a cute little piglet in fact) it was me doing the retreating and VERY FAST. Interestingly, that mad scramble through a Japanese forest to avoid the baby boar mama led me straight into a nest of giant hornets (out of the frying pan…eh?). Some habits die hard, and I was a little surprised in this video to find myself talking in Japanese as I approached this desert mine. I doubt there were any moon bear or wild boar inside, though if they were, my poor Japanese seemed to do the trick of holding them at bay. ----- My name is Kurt Bell and I am delighted that you have taken some time to share a little of The Good Life with me.
