Eventually, however, more and more people have been drawn to amateur geology for recreational purposes, mainly for the beauty that rocks and minerals provide.

Hat collector That's a good question. I've heard of dozens of specialized words for the collectors of this, that, and the other thing, but there may be no word for a hat collector. There's even a word for people who collect beer mats (coasters) -- that's a tegestologist -- but I don't know the …word for hat collector. Of course, a milliner is a hat maker/seller, but that's not what you're looking for, I'm sure. This may be your opportunity to coin a new word! As nobody has claimed this title, I hereby declare that the new name for a collector of hats is a "Nowakologist" ( Full Answer )

Surinam may have been the first name by which the future Surinamese Republic was known formally among the English, French and Spanish speaking explorers of the 16th century. The name may have been borrowed from the word 'Surinen'. The word referred to the country's inhabitants before the arrival of… the European explorers and settlers. Willoughbyland may have been the second name by which the country was known formally among English language speakers. The name was in use from 1630 until 1667. It was in honor of Francis Willoughby, 5th Baron of Willoughby. From his governorship in Barbados, Lord Willoughby tried to develop the subsequent Suriname into a plantation economy. Nederlands Guyana [or Guiana] may have been the third name. The fledgling English colony fell under Dutch control by the Treaty of Breda of July 31, 1667. A crucial battle between the English and the Dutch was fought some months earlier, on February 27, 1667, at Fort Willoughby. With the Dutch victorious in just three hours, the fort became known as Fort Zeelandia. By the Treaty of Breda, and again by the Treaty of Westminster of February 19, 1674, Suriname became an area of predominantly Dutch settlement. In exchange, the future Nieuw Amsterdam became an area of mainly English settlement. So English language speakers came to refer to their foothold in North America as New York, and to the Dutch foothold in South America as Dutch Guiana. Republiek Suriname may be the fourth name by which the country is known formally. It's the name by which the world knows the country since the late 20th century. Self government within the Kingdom of the Netherlands in 1954 and complete independence on November 25, 1975 bring Suriname face to face with its position in the world. It's a country that seeks the harmonious working of European influences within a non European environment. That search may be seen in the choice of the name. Indeed, the two word name brings together the Dutch word 'Republiek' and the native Arawak based word 'Suriname'. Its equivalent in English is Republic of Suriname, or simply Suriname.

Very long ago, the first civilizations of the Middle East and India saw Lyre (the stars that make up the constellation Lyre) as a vulture. Vega, the brightest star, was called the Vulture Star. Even though the Greeks saw a harp here, depictions of Lyra even centuries later often showed the harp help… in the claws of a vulture. In Asia, Vega is known as the Weaving-Princess Star. The details of the legend vary from country to country, but in all of the stories the weaving princess falls in love and marries a shepherd, represented by the star Altair. They both neglect their duties, so her father separates them, placing them on opposite sides of the river of heaven, the Milky Way. They are allowed to meet only one night a year, at midsummer. The harp (or more properly, a kithara) was said to have been invented by the god Hermes (Roman, mercury), who one day found an empty tortoise shell on the beach, strung seven strings through the holes, and found they made sweet music when plucked. Some time later Hermes traded this instrument with Apollo for the caduceus, the magical staff entwined with snakes, which gave Hermes the power to fly and to heal. Apollo later gave the kithara to his son, Orpheus, who played it so skillfully that stones on the mountains stopped to listen and wild beasts were charmed. Much later, when his beloved wife Eurydice died, Orpheus used his lyre to persuade the powers of Hades to release her. The gods consented but they forbade him to look at her before they reached the upper world. Orpheus, overcome with joy, forgot this order and glanced at Eurydice just before they stepped into the Sun - and within seconds she was gone. Orpheus never recovered from his grief and was later murdered by a band of maidens to whom he refused to pay attention. After his death he and Eurydice were reunited, and Orpheus's harp was placed in the sky by Zeus. ( Full Answer )

A: The original New Testament gospel, now known as Mark's Gospel, refers to Levi, son of Alphaeus, as a tax collector. However, for some reason, Mark never again refers to Levi, but introduces Matthew and James, son of Alphaeus, as disciples in the list of the twelve disciples (verse 3:14-19). Lu…ke's Gospel follows this more or less faithfully when copying from Mark . Because disciples are not supposed to just disappear, the author of the book now known as Matthew's Gospel resolved this problem by not referring to Levi, but instead saying in the corresponding place in the text that the tax collector Jesus called was Matthew. Because of the change of name in Matthew , it has become accepted by Christians that Matthew and Levi were one and the same person, although Mark's Gospel makes this seem unlikely. ( Full Answer )
