O'Reilly: PHP 5 rocks!

PHP in the news: Why PHP 5 Rocks!

Adam Trachtenberg wrote a nice article on the benefits of PHP5. If you use MySQL/PHP based technologies, it's worth the read.
Excerpt:

In this article, I highlight seven of my favorite PHP 5 features. These features allow your PHP 5 code to frequently be shorter, more elegant, and more flexible than ever before.

News Interactive: Poor 25 year old Miner digs up 182 carat rough diamond

Diamonds in the news: Miner digs up 182-carat gem.

This is a sad story....

Excerpt:

THERE'S lucky: Finding a diamond when you're a young miner sweating it out in the west African forests of Guinea.

And then there's too lucky: finding a 182-carat stone that everyone - starting with the government of Guinea - wants a piece of.
Result: the stone, four times the size of the famous Hope diamond, was tucked away today deep in the vaults of Guinea's Central Bank. No pictures, please.
And the 25-year-old miner who found it, if not exactly in hiding, was making himself scarce. No interviews, please.
State radio in impoverished, mineral-rich Guinea announced the find Thursday. Guinea mining industry officials confirmed Monday that the newly dug-up stone - though not flawless - was a fortune in the rough.

Herald.com: Sunrise jewelry firm Odimo files initial public offering

Diamonds in the news: Sunrise jewelry firm Odimo files initial public offering.

Excerpt:

Online diamond and jewelry retailer Odimo of Sunrise filed an initial public offering Friday to sell an estimated $57.5 million in stock.
The filing comes two months after Seattle-based Blue Nile -- another diamond and jewelry retailer on the Internet -- and investors sold $76.7 million of shares in an IPO.
Blue Nile's shares are up 65 percent since debuting at $20.50 on May 20. The stock closed at $33.94 on Friday.
But David Menlow, president of IPOfinancial.com, a research firm that studies public offerings, doesn't expect Odimo's IPO will be greeted with the same fanfare. Odimo operates the websites Diamond.com, Ashford.com and WorldofWatches.com., selling brand-name luxury goods at as much as 60 percent off retail.

IOL: Nguesso vows to put diamond trade in order

Diamonds in the news: Nguesso vows to put diamond trade in order.

Excerpt:

The president of Congo Republic on Friday pledged to restore order in the country's diamond trade after a global "blood diamond" watchdog excluded the Central African state from mainstream trade in the gems.

The Kimberley Process - which aims to keep track of diamonds to stop them being used to fund wars - struck Congo off its membership list last week, saying authorities could not account for the origin of large official diamond exports.

Money Central: De Beers to Plead Guilty; Return to U.S.

Diamonds in the news: De Beers to Plead Guilty; Return to U.S.:

Excerpt:

De Beers, the world's top diamond producer, will plead guilty in a U.S. court to a 10-year-old price-fixing charge, opening the way for it to resume business in America after nearly 60 years, a court official said on Monday.
The return of the venerable South African company is likely to spark a battle in the luxury goods market when it opens a store on Fifth Avenue this year to rival Tiffany and Co. Inc., as well as Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels, both owned by Swiss luxury goods group Richemont-.
