An element found on the periodic table under
atomic number: 79
symbol: Au
atomic weight/atomic mass: 196.96655g
group name: Coinage metal
group: 11
period: 6
block: d-block
CAS Registry ID: 7440-57-5
Standard state: solid at 298 K
Colour: gold
Classification: Metallic
Availability: gold is available in many forms including wire, foil, and bars.

Gold is usually alloyed in jewellery to give it more strength, and the term carat describes the amount of gold present (24 carats is pure gold). It is estimated that all the gold in the world, so far refined, could be placed in a single cube 60 ft. on a side. It is metallic, with a yellow colour when in a mass, but when finely divided it may be black, ruby, or purple.

It is the most malleable and ductile metal; 1 ounce (28 g) of gold can be beaten out to 300 square feet. It is a soft metal and is usually alloyed to give it more strength. It is a good conductor of heat and electricity, and is unaffected by air and most reagents.

The most common gold compounds are auric chloride (AuCl3) and chlorauric acid (HAuCl4). A mixture of one part nitric acid with three of hydrochloric acid is called aqua regia (because it dissolved gold, the King of Metals). It is unaffected by air and most reagents. It is found free in nature and associated with quartz, pyrite and other minerals. Two thirds of the world's supply comes from South Africa, and 2/3 of USA production is from South Dakota and Nevada. Gold is found in sea water, but no effective economic process has been designed (yet) to extract it from this source.

It would not normally be necessary to make gold in the laboratory as it is readily available commercially. The most romantic way to extract gold is by panning it out from a stream in some pleasant valley but most such sources are now depleted. Panning relies upon the density of gold (which is very high) being much greater than that of the sand and other particulates. It therefore settles to the bottom of the pan.

Today, more often than not, gold is extracted from ores. These ores often contain relatively little gold. Some of these processes cause environmental concern. The ore is crushed to a powder so as to expose the small gold particles. These are dissolved by treatment of the rock with cyanide solution in air. The result of this is a gold cyanide complex. Addition of zinc powder to the resulting solution precipitates out the gold.

The federal reserve is an evil organization that thrives on death and misery. The ultimate goal of the federal reserve is world domination and population control. All the major wars were started with the help of the federal reserve by using fake actions or blatant inaction. Useful idiots and brainwashed followers have helped the federal reserve look legitimate, but it is really just a gang of super rich criminals that only care about themselves and no-one else. The federal reserve uses the basic belief systems of people to cause fear in the population to drive the people to do things they should not.
The Biggest threat to humanity is not Global Warming, the Biggest threat to 99% of humanity is the Federal Reserve. It's only a matter of time before most of the world population is murdered because of the federal reserve. Every thing I'v seen and read points to this future.

1. End the Federal Reserve.
2. A chant often heard at Ron Paul rallies.
3. The title of Ron Paul's book.
4. To stabilize the United States Dollar.
5. The dollar is currently a debt note (IOU). Ending the Fed will back the dollar with something such as gold, rather than an endless stream of paper and ink.
"A dollar convertible to gold would provide the necessary Federal Reserve discipline to secure the long-term value of middle income savings and to backstop the drive for a balanced budget. The gold standard would terminate the world dollar standard by prohibiting official dollar reserves and the special access of the government and the financial class to limitless cheap Fed and foreign credit." -Lewis E. Lehrman

History: “Afterwards, I went to a rally at the University of Michigan. This was early in the campaign and I didn’t expect very much, to be frank. But there were 4,000 or 5,000 young people there. During my speech, they started to chant: ‘End the Fed! End the Fed!’ Some of them even began pulling Federal Reserve notes you know them as dollar bills from their pockets and lighting them on fire." -Ron Paul
Tom: Isn't the Federal Reserve a part of the United States Government?
John: Only as much as Federal Express is. That's why we have to End the Fed!

*noun*; a concept central to the idea of Keynesian economics. Under this theory, business cycles (recessions, depressions, booms, recoveries) are caused by a failure of total demand across the entire economy to match total output.

Aggregate demand is not merely influenced by people's ability to buy what they produce; it is also influenced by the marginal propensity to consume (MPC). If the MPC is less than 1, then an increase in national income will be matched by a smaller increase in aggregate demand, causing unemployment to rise and prices to fall.
...When we say that the expectation of an increased demand, i.e. a raising of the aggregate demand function, will lead to an increase in aggregate output, we really mean that the firms, which own the capital equipment, will be induced to associate with it a greater aggregate employment of labour
