The Secret World of Gold is a documentary exploring the power and politics of gold, a precious metal with more allure and fascination than any other. In recent years, economic uncertainty is giving gold a new lustre in the world of high finance. Some claim that much of the gold held by the Bank of Canada, the Bank of England, the Federal Reserve and Fort Knox is gone — that for every 100 ounces of gold traded, there exists only one ounce of real, physical gold. Educators can watch and purchase many episodes and learning guides of Doc Zone and The Nature of Things for classroom use on our portal for educators. Cornell’s coin collection is one of the best-kept secrets on campus, but if archaeologist Annetta Alexandridis has her way, the world will soon have access to every one of its 1,500 coins.
The Cornell coin collection ranks among the major university coin collections and covers the most important epochs of coin making in antiquity, from lumps of metal marked with a seal to beautifully crafted Byzantine gold stamped with royal faces. The initial cataloging of the collection was done by Peter Kuniholm, professor emeritus, history of art and archaeology, and Andrew Ramage, professor emeritus, history of art, with student assistance. Laura Wilke, a master’s degree student in archaeology, will create the metadata for the project in collaboration with the Cornell Library and Alexandridis.
Ultimately the coins, currently stored in randomly sorted paper envelopes, will be put in museum-standard clear trays and reorganized for easier access. According to Rhea Garen, library digital photo specialist, Cornell’s Digital Consulting and Production Services will generate high-quality digital images of each coin by placing them directly on a flatbed scanner with adjustable focus. Metadata librarian Jason Kovari notes that digitization will be the quickest part of the process; he estimates the total project could easily take two years. Digitizing the coins is another step toward creating a virtual museum containing all the university’s collections, including its plaster casts, potsherds, lantern slides and bronzes, says Alexandridis. Secret Bear World is a virtual world where children ages 6-14 (although my 4 yr old loves it) can have fun playing cool games designed especially for kids.
A few things I noticed is there’s no navigation like arrows to tell kids they can go this way or that. Children can express themselves with colorful costumes and furniture for their very own virtual bear home, and safely interact with other children.

Joining Secret Bear World is free of charge, although only members who purchase Gold Bear Card membership privileges will be able to play in secret levels of virtual merchandise for their Bears, unlock all of secret bear world and get you into special events. Other Thoughts: When my daughter first saw the site she said that it played a lot like Club Penguin which many of her friends play online.

Whether it's a few gold coins or gold bars stored in one of the many vaults around the world, many investors are taking a shine to gold.

Thanks to the Grants Program for Digital Collections in Arts and Sciences, the coin collection will soon be digitized and its catalog posted online. She notes that many of the coins can also be viewed as artworks because the details are so finely wrought.
Each coin needs to be remeasured, reweighed and compared with the initial classification to ensure catalog accuracy. For example, with enlargement the image on a coin originally catalogued as a sphinx might be revealed to be a lion. About 300 of the coins have never been cataloged, so Wilke will have to identify each of them.
I normally do not allow my children to play online games but this once I allowed an exception.

We began by picking a bear name (his choice), a bear (he chose the Panda) and secret password (only I know). Children can play in the beautiful Ice Castle and the sparkling waterfall in the Rain Forest, hang out at the beach (my son’s favorite) and shop in the City for virtual clothing and furniture before sharing milkshakes with other bears.
Along with being able to register and play for free the great folks at Secret Bear Want to offer the readers of the Night Owl Mama and opportunity to Win a Gold Membership for 1 full year. Along with being dedicated to keeping kids safe on line Secret Bear world also donates to Children’s Cancer research in hopes that someday the world will find a cure to preventing childhood cancers. In the first months of the Second World War, the gold of England and France was secretly shipped to vaults in Montreal, Ottawa and New York. Odyssey Marine, an American company listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange, spends huge amounts of money to search for that gold.

When I was asked to review the Secret Bear World online game site for kids I thought I’d have a look at it first. They didn’t ask for any personal information but I did use my email address for verification. But there's always the risk they will have to hand it over to countries claiming ownership.
It is said that, even melted down, there would not be enough to fill an Olympic swimming pool (or maybe not - see sidebar).
