Hindustan Times: The necklace that Joan Rivers wore for the post-Oscar 2004 party is now creating ripples in the city.

Stockwatch.com: CMKM Diamonds the subject of aborted radio debate

Diamond Stocks in the news: CMKM Diamonds the subject of aborted radio debate

This is an interesting article about Pink Sheet Stock promotion and the diamond stock called CMKM Diamonds...

Excerpt:

CMKM Diamonds Inc., a sub-penny pink sheet promotion headed by Saskatchewan native Urban Casavant, was to be the topic of debate during a Sept. 21 half-hour Christian radio program called Prosperity for God's People. Stock tout Ed Miller of the Green Baron was scheduled to square off against a critic of the CMKM promotion, Hartley Bernstein of Stock Patrol. The ballyhooed debate bombed when Mr. Bernstein bowed out early.
Evidently Mr. Bernstein was unexpectedly travelling when the live radio program went to air and a poor telephone connection prompted his early departure from the debate. News of that development was greeted with a mixture of delight and derision among CMKM's faithful followers, many of whom label Mr. Bernstein a "basher."
The word "basher" is a popular, if nebulous, term bandied about regularly on Internet chat sites. At the frequently used extreme, anyone with the temerity to raise concerns or ask critical questions about a stock runs the risk of being labelled a basher.
Given Mr. Bernstein's very brief participation, Prosperity for God's People was pretty much basher free on Sept. 21. Pastor DeWayne Reeves, host of the program, and his stock tout guest, Mr. Miller, fill

NPR: From the Kalahari to Malibu

Diamonds in the news: From the Kalahari to Malibu

Excerpt:

With NPR's Alex Chadwick, they take a break from their mission to hike the Santa Monica Mountains -- a mostly arid coastal range with winding trails leading down to idyllic beaches.
Sesana's people have lived for thousands of years in an area that is now dubbed the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. In the last several years, most of the people living there have been moved outside the boundaries of the reserve -- voluntarily, the government says.
Botswana's ambassador to the United States, Lapologang Ceasar Lekoa, tells Chadwick that the estimated 2,000 Bushmen remaining in the enormous region had already given up their traditional nomadic ways and were living in settlements, which are not allowed in the reserve. Also, Lekoa says, the Bushmen hunt with guns now and chase game with trucks and dogs. Modern Bushmen would overwhelm the Kalahari's fragile ecology.
But Bushmen dispute those accusations -- they say their culture has survived so long precisely because they are careful hunters, who live in balance with the Kalahari. The U.S. State Department's report on Botswana's human rights practices, released Feb. 24, 2004, states Botswana's government forcibly resettled the Bushmen from their ancestral lands.
Human rights groups say Botswana is more interested in diamond deposits in the

The Journal News: Rockland jewelers make convertible jewelry

Jewelry in the news: Rockland jewelers make convertible jewelry.

Excerpt:

"Transformers" action figures, a huge hit in the 1980s, were a two-for-one toy. The small plastic figures started out as trucks, police cruisers and race cars, and with some maneuvering could be transformed into robots.
Think of convertible jewelry as "Transformers" for adults.
Last Tuesday the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued a patent for "Convertible pendant jewelry" to Rockland residents William Molino, Mike Buryakov and Igor Dranovsky. Molino and Buryakov are partners in a Pomona jewelry store, Molino Jewelers.
Molino and Buryakov (Dranovsky is no longer part of the business) have developed and now sell about 12 different convertible pendants, which hang on chains. One pendant begins as two interlocked horseshoes. Open up the small hinged pieces and you have a new design that looks like two crisscrossed lines.
Other pendants start as a heart, a Star of David and a cross, then transform to other, more linear designs. The pendants range in price from $350 to $799.
"In the jewelry business, it's very hard to invent something new," said Buryakov, 49, a New City resident. "With this idea, you can make a thousand different designs. You can open almost anything."

Diamonds in the news: Govt concessions sought for Argyle diamond mine.

Excerpt:

Business and civic leaders in the East Kimberley are urging the Western Australian Government to give serious consideration to royalty concessions for the Argyle diamond mine - the region's biggest employer.
Mining company Rio Tinto has asked for tax reductions or cheaper water to make its planned underground expansion viable.
The current mine at Argyle will come to an end in 2008.
The mine employs 350 local people and sources goods and services from the area worth about $20 million a year.
Under its expansion, the workforce sourced locally would increase from 40 to 80 per cent.
Local shire president Barbara Johnson says the impact of the mine's closure would be enormous.

Business Wire: Pan African Commences Diamond Exploration Program; Establishes Sample Processing Laboratory

Diamonds in the news: Pan African Commences Diamond Exploration Program; Establishes Sample Processing Laboratory.

Excerpt:

PAN AFRICAN MINING CORP. (TSX VENTURE:PAF) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has now commenced its formal diamond exploration program in the field in Madagascar, under the direction of South African diamond geologist Jessica Schloemann. The primary objective of the program is the discovery of kimberlitic diamond sources. As a secondary objective, the Company will investigate the possibility of locating rich alluvial deposits and commercial deposits of other precious stones.


Through its operating subsidiary, PAM Madagascar Sarl, the Company holds 10-year research permits covering in excess of 3000 square kilometres in areas deemed prospective for diamond exploration in various regions of the country. These areas were identified based upon the geological history of Madagascar and presence of the cratonic core, as well as historic discoveries of alluvial diamonds and other kimberlite indicator minerals. Data from the BRGM, a French governmental research organization, and other historic sources were among tools utilised by the Company's geologists. Most of the Company's diamond claims were established in 2003 prior to the recent diamond exploration activity by other companies in Madagascar.

PR Web: Mondera Sets New Jewelry Industry Shipping Standard

PRESS RELEASE: Mondera Sets New Jewelry Industry Shipping Standard.

Excerpt:

Mondera Sets New Jewelry Industry Shipping Standard
While it is rare for jewelers in the U.S. or Canada to ship outside of these two countries, Mondera now offers free priority shipping on certain orders to anywhere in the world.
New York, NY (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) September 7, 2004 -- Strange as it sounds, if you wanted to place a diamond order with a U.S.-based jeweler from outside the United States or Canada, you'd have to look around just to find a jeweler willing to ship to other countries. Mondera, whose diamonds have been worn by a long list of celebrities, would be among your options, but now, it has topped even this rare service.

“We pride ourselves on helping anyone feel like royalty, says Mondera's Managing Director, Fred Mouawad. We provide custom diamond jewelry that the nation's biggest stars wear, yet we do so at prices that many people can afford. Part of our royal treatment means providing free, priority shipping with any custom diamond order. Until now, though, that was only available to customers in the U.S.

While any kind of shipping to other countries is rare within the industry, free priority shipping has been unheard of. Mondera now offers that for any custom diamond order.
