NEW YORK, NY - Total physical silver demand rose by 13 percent in 2013 to an all-time high, according to World Silver Survey 2014, released today by the Silver Institute. This was primarily driven by the 76 percent increase in retail investment in bars and coins coupled with a sturdy recovery in jewelry and silverware fabrication. On the supply side, silver scrap fell by 24 percent, experiencing the largest drop on record to reach its lowest level since 2001. The silver price averaged $23.79 in 2013, the third highest nominal average price on record, in a particularly volatile year for the entire precious metals complex.

Global Cliff Diving Competition Debuts in Texas
by BWW News Desk - Mar 27, 2014

DALLAS, TX - Cliff diving is the purest extreme sport on earth. Take a high cliff, deep water and courage. No additional machinery, no protection whatsoever, just absolute concentration and complete body control. Diving from heights of around 90ft, the equivalent of an eight-story building, has a long tradition but remained largely in the shadows until the start of a series of competitions in May 2009, featuring the world's best high divers. It is a series that has since pushed the limits of the sport and impressed more than 650,000 spectators on site worldwide. The 2014 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series, the pinnacle of cliff diving competition in its sixth season, will hit new as well as proven ground in the Caribbean, the continents of North and South America, as well as Europe, to determine a new champion for both men and women.

BWW Recap: OUTLANDER Invites You to Join 'The Gathering'
by Kara McCoy - Aug 30, 2014

The episode begins with a frantic Claire running through the woods, darting around trees and panting heavily, as a sentry keeps his watchful post From Above. It's all wracked with tension and suspense, particularly when we recall Claire's ominous testimony at the end of last week's installment: get back to Craigh na Dun, or “die trying.” Run, Claire, run! we simple viewers implore—for all of ten seconds, until we realize, oh but of course, she's just playing a game. We, and the sentry, relax as Ms. Beauchamp emerges from the trees, a gaggle of pint-sized Scots eagerly giggling at her heels. Claire is smoothly transitioning into life at Castle Leoch, it seems—but as always, Claire is really fixated on just one thing: freedom. And no matter how much fun she and the wee bairns appear to be having, she's using the game to better explore the castle grounds. For escape routes. Oh, girl, that is clever. (more...)
