Exploring the river beaches and extraordinary wildlife of Brazil’s alternative Amazon – Wanderlust

Alex Robinson discovers a land of rhythmic cities, wild archipelagos and the Tapajs a white-sand wonder unlike anywhere else in Brazil. On his way he encounters capybara and river dolphins

The trees parted at the top of the ridge and Alter do Cho lay at our feet. The rainforest gently dropped to a lagoon crowned with a lush hill and spanned by twin back-to-back half-moon bays of snow-soft white sand. Wooden fishing boats bobbed on the horizon and the long sweep of Ponta do Cururu beach stretched into the water like white silk on ultramarine.

Inland, the wall of dark green trees ran unbroken by roads or cities for 2,500 kilometres. The floral scents of the forest mixed with the warm air wafting in from the bays, islands and beaches. This could have been the coast of Thailand, but I was actually on the banks of a Brazilian river the Tapajs a clearwater tributary of the Amazon set deep in lowland tropical forest.

Beach at Alter do Cho (Alex Robinson)

While most travellers access the forest from the Andes through Peru or Ecuador Id chosen to visit a very different stretch, closer to the rivers mouth in Brazil, where vast waterways flowed as wide as small seas. On TV, the Amazon was always being wandered by sweaty, insect-baffled explorers with thick trousers tucked into their socks, but with new flights bringing this region within easy reach, I wanted to see an alternative side to this legendary river: balmy, beach-lined and bug-free.

My flight had brought me to Belm, the capital of Amazon-Brazils Par state. From above, its cluster of jagged concrete spires appeared almost overrun by great swathes of forest, except where a huge chocolate-brown river dotted with tankers scythed through the green. Stepping off the plane, the air hit me immediately: aromatic, as warm as melting butter and energised by the hot, bright sunlight. Welcome to the Amazon, said my guide, Gelderson.

We drove through streets of handsome colonial houses lined with towering mango trees and flowering jacarandas, stopping to drop my bags at the hotel before walking down to the riverfront. Here, a glass-fronted restaurant complex had taken over an old quayside warehouse that was, in turn, watched over by an ancient Portuguese fort, its battlements punctured with rusted cannons.

The Amazon is cities, too, Gelderson insisted, and promised a crash course in Belms urban culture. Lets start with the food, he smiled. The tacaca (prawn soup) that arrived was spiced with jambu leaves and tangy with tucupi, a sauce made from manioc juice and highly toxic if not prepared correctly. It tingled in the mouth like popping candy.

The tambaqui that followed was succulent like steak and had none of that muddy flavour you often get with river fish. I washed it down with sweet bacuri juice, made from an Amazon fruit unique to the forests around Belm.

After eating, we wandered incense-filled baroque churches, admired the Renaissance Italian paintings in the lavish rubber-boom-era Opera House and browsed street stalls where forest Amerindians sold bracelets woven with coloured seeds as hard as mountain pebbles. We made our way to the wrought-iron market hall of Ver-o-Peso, inspired by the Belle poque architecture of Gustave Eiffel.

The rising city of Belm (Alex Robinson)

I stood and watched the men unloading baskets of blackcurrant-dark palm berries and tiger-striped catfish from double-decker wooden riverboats. Night arrived with the cracking of thunder. We drank ice-cold beer at the Ziggy hostel club late into the evening, until the 70-something Dona Onete arrived on stage in her wheelchair, a wicked ear-to-ear grin on her face and a band of exuberant musicians for company. Then no one could keep still.

No meio do piti, eu fui cantar carimb (Surrounded by the smell of river fish, I went to sing carimb) she sang, as old men spun wasp-waisted teenagers around in skirt-flying swirls.

Her carimb a samba-like rhythm unique to northern Brazil, named after the drum that sets its tempo beat long into the night. L no Ver-o-Peso, urubu sobrevoando (Down at the Ver-o-Peso market as a vulture flew overhead).

I woke late the following morning and the day seemed to pass in a haze of food, music and dance. But then it was time to leave the city and head into the wild. At the airport, Gelderson pressed a bottle of rum filled with jambu leaves into my hands. Youve had a taste of the urban Amazon, he reminded me, as good as his word. Remember what youre missing and come back soon.

The plane climbed and we followed the course of the great river, a glinting artery of reflected sunlight surrounded by endless green. A billion lush stems were broken only by the splashes of colour from solitary flowering trees, flecked rose-pink ibis and soaring black-and-white king vultures.

If Belm had been a city, Alter do Cho (half an hours drive from Santarm airport) was barely a hamlet. It also sat sleepily at the mouth of one of the Amazons greatest tributaries: the Tapajs. It was here that my guide, Arkus, who looked as fit and tanned as a Californian surfer, showed me round. It took less than five minutes to see the main plaza but an hour to climb to the outlook and soak in its beauty; the view across the river bays, beaches and islands was more than reward. I drifted to sleep that night serenaded by the music of singing cicadas and tree frogs, eager to dive into nature the following day.

In golden dawn light, we walked to the riverfront and stopped at a two-storey riverboat with a polished mahogany galley and swinging hammocks. Arkus introduced me to its captain, Taketomei, a fifty-something man, slim, toned and burnt a fierce nut-brown by the Amazon sun. His father was one of thousands of Japanese economic migrants to have come to the Brazilian Amazon between the First and Second World Wars to trade; there were still whole towns here, like Tom-Au, that were almost entirely Japanese, he told me.

Capybara (Alex Robinson)

Other passengers joined us onboard: a couple from So Paulo and a local carimb dancer, Eliane, who had long black hair and fierce dark eyes set in an oval face. As we set out across the clear blue river, Eliane explained that she was a Boror Amerindian.

We are a new tribe, she told me, her fierce expression warming to a smile, made up of the fragments of many nations who came together at Alter do Cho less than one hundred years ago.

Taketomeis mother was also an Amazon tribeswoman, I learned. His parents had fallen in love over a basket of traded vegetables, he said, and, as a boy, he had cruised all the rivers of the Amazon, from the Javari on the distant Peruvian border to the river mouth at Belm, selling groceries to caboclo peasants (indigenous people of mixed African or European descent) and Amerindian villagers.

It took us around an hour to cross the 15km-wide Tapajs. We saw river turtles and bubble-gum-pink dolphins as well as snowy-white egrets wading in the shallows, little fish in their beaks. Then we moored on a broad beach that stretched for kilometres along the river, backed by forest. Time to swim, said Eliane, now dressed in a bikini and sporting a sun hat and glasses. I hesitated. What about piranhas?

She and Arkus laughed gently. Nothing will bite you here. There arent even mosquitoes on the Tapajs. And they headed along the fluffy talcum-powder beach and splashed into the water.

We spent the afternoon walking trails in the national forest reserve, wandering past towering kapok trees, the roots of which looked like flying buttresses. Capuchin monkeys looked curiously down at us from the branches, and iridescent manakin birds as small and fleet as a wren flitted through the understorey. I saw how the local community tapped rubber from the forest, scoring the trees with a metal claw, allowing the sap to collect in a cup before moulding it into sheets and hanging it out to dry like T-shirts on a clothing-line.

Monkey in branches of a tree (Alex Robinson)

I spent the next few days exploring the wilds around the village.

I woke in the morning light to canoe through flooded forest, watching kingfishers dart and fishing eagles glide. I saw dolphins playing at sunset off the tip of the 2km-long Ponta do Cururu beach and, after dark, Arkus and I searched the trees with torches for sloths and night monkeys, their eyes as big and shiny as ten-pence pieces.

My last evening here was spent at a beach barbecue at one of the remote lagoons, a short boat-ride from Alter do Cho. As the sun set, a guitar and drums were pulled out and people danced the carimb with hula hoops. Then Arkus built a fire on the sand with driftwood and cooked a freshly caught Surubim catfish on a mesh griddle. The succulent fish came with freshly squashed acai juice and pulpy, tart cupuau fruit. In the boat on the way back, it was as if we were floating on the Milky Way, the starry sky mirrored in the glassy Tapajs water.

Id sampled Amazon culture and seen the mossie-free bar beaches, but now I yearned for the Amazon of TV mythology: insects and entangled vines, snakes and crocodiles. And what better way to get close to it than by staying in a floating jungle lodge, bobbing on a tributary just off the Amazon itself?

It took a few hours to get there first flying to Manaus, and then taking a jeep and speedboat to Pedro Netos Amazon Eco Adventures lodge on the Urubu River. With Pedro pointing out a wealth of wildlife along the way, we spied metre-long macaws shrieking overhead, black-collared hawks roosting in the trees and a troop of howler monkeys delicately plucking leaves.

We arrived at dusk and I quickly slapped on the repellent, almost pleased to see mosquitoes. After a hearty supper of rice, beans and river fish, Pedro bustled me into a metal launch and we headed out in search of crocodiles and caiman. The riverbanks were bursting with life.

Tall tiger herons and tiny, delicate jacanas that looked like elongated moorhens stalked the mud, and the air was vibrant with the call of frogs and insects. Pedro shined a bright lamp and caught red eyes drifting across the water. We moved closer and found a caiman as big as a man frozen in the light. It disappeared under the murky surface with a rapid whip of its tail. Over the next few days, I saw boa constrictors, toucans and otters, capybara (sheep-sized guinea pigs) and piranhas, which we pulled gnashing from the river on fishing line baited with giblets. But Pedro saved the most spectacular sight of all for my last day.

The Negro meets the Amazon (Alex Robinson)

We took a scenic flight out of Manaus and headed over the Rio Negro another of the Amazons tributaries for Anavilhanas, the worlds largest archipelago of river islands. Below us, thousands of green streaks dotted its black water; then we circled back downstream to where the Negro met the Amazon in a swirl of tan and black waters. Divided by different water densities, the rivers flowed side by side, without mixing, to form one huge stream that snaked into the distance. Boats dotted the water and hundreds of tributaries trickled from the forest, stretching as far as I could see in every direction, to every horizon.

It was then that I realised I had barely dipped a toe in the Brazilian Amazon. Id seen vibrant jungle cities, vast beach-fringed rivers, tributaries teeming with wildlife, sweeping archipelagos and the magnificent sight of two rivers flowing into one. It was more than I would have experienced had I visited on a typical excursion from one of the Andean countries, yet there was so much more to see. Brazils Amazon covers an area half as big as India again.

Over the horizon were country-sized wetlands and tabletop mountain ranges as large as Britain, savannahs, giant waterfalls and hundreds more rivers bigger than the greatest in Europe. Like the carimb singer Id seen on my first night in Belm, it had succeeded in pulling off that rarest of dramatic feats: it had left me wanting more.

In Belm, the author travelled with Gelderson Pinheiros Rumo Norte Expeditions, who also run trips throughout the Amazon. In Alter do Cho, guide Arkus Rodrigues is available for hiking and river trips (arkusrodrigues@hotmail.com, +55 93 991 494174; from 25pp). Amazon Eco Adventures run three-day trips on the Urubu River (contact company for pricing).

Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V)’s RCI Heading Towards a Potential Reversal – FLBC News

Shares of Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) are nearing some key technical levels as the Rank Correlation indicator has trending higher over the past few sessions, nearing potential overbought territory. Crossing the 80 mark would suggestthat a chance of a reversal is increasing.

The Rank Correlation Index (RCI) is based on an analysis algorithm by Charles Spearman. It uses a combination of price change data and time change data to identify potential changes in market sentiment, thereby exposing turning points. Zero crossings are seen as buy and sell signals, with tops and bottoms yielding overbought and oversold information.

While traders are taking a second look at how shares of Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) have been performing lately, we can examine some additional key indicators. A favorite tool among technical stock analysts is the moving average. Moving averages are considered to be lagging indicators that simply take the average price of a stock over a specific period of time. Moving averages can be very useful for identifying peaks and troughs. They may also be used to help the trader figure out proper support and resistance levels for the stock. Currently, the 200-day MA is sitting at 0.29, and the 50-day is 0.28.

The 14-day ADX for Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) is currently at 14.94. In general, and ADX value from 0-25 would represent an absent or weak trend. A value of 25-50 would support a strong trend. A value of 50-75 would signify a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would point to an extremely strong trend. Checking in on some other technical levels, the 14-day RSI is currently at 48.02, the 7-day stands at 48.96, and the 3-day is sitting at 46.64. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is a momentum oscillator that measures the speed and change of stock price movements. The RSI was developed by J. Welles Wilder, and it oscillates between 0 and 100. Generally, the RSI is considered to be oversold when it falls below 30 and overbought when it heads above 70. RSI can be used to detect general trends as well as finding divergences and failure swings.

At the time of writing, Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 13.23. Developed by Donald Lambert, the CCI is a versatile tool that may be used to help spot an emerging trend or provide warning of extreme conditions. CCI generally measures the current price relative to the average price level over a specific time period. CCI is relatively high when prices are much higher than average, and relatively low when prices are much lower than the average. Investors may be watching other technical indicators such as the Williams Percent Range or Williams %R. The Williams %R is a momentum indicator that helps measure oversold and overbought levels. This indicator compares the closing price of a stock in relation to the highs and lows over a certain time period. A common look back period is 14 days. Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V)s Williams %R presently stands at -37.50. The Williams %R oscillates in a range from 0 to -100. A reading between 0 and -20 would indicate an overbought situation. A reading from -80 to -100 would indicate an oversold situation.

University of Auckland takes lectures to the pub, following international trend – Stuff.co.nz

SHANI WILLIAMS

Last updated15:14, July 24 2017

CHRIS SKELTON/STUFF

Golden Dawn manager Nick Harrison will be raising his glass to knowledge on August 29.

Auckland academics are ditching the lecture theatre for the city’s bars.

The University of Auckland will send 20 academics to lecture at 10 Auckland bars as a part of a worldwide initiative next month.

The event, called “Raising the Bar”, aims to make education a greater part of the city’s culture by giving the community the chance to engage with leading academics in a friendly, accessible and laid back atmosphere.

The initiative originated in New York in 2015 and is designed to break down the perception that higher education deepens socioeconomic inequality by pushing away prospective students.

Raising the Bar quickly spread to Melbourne, Sydney, San Francisco, London, Hong Kong and now Auckland.

University of Auckland director of alumni relations and development Mark Bentley said the lecture topics would reflect the younger “Ted Talk generation”.

The sessions, being held on August 29, would be fascinating, quick and informative, he said.

Topics will range from life among robots, why terrorists want to kill us, imagining a world without prisons and the brain of sharks.

Bentley said pubs had been host to great conversations for as long as they had existed.

“Pubs are not about alcohol, they are about friendship and good conversations and we are glad we can continue and expand that worthy tradition,” he said.

It is expected more than 1500 Aucklanders will attend the event, with a few locations selling out 24 hours after tickets were released on Friday.

Thomas Gregory, who will talk about the human cost of drone strikes at Tom Tom Bar and Eatery, said lecturing in a pub was a dream gig but a little nerve-racking too.

“If students get bored of my lectures they usually just sneak out early or twiddle with their phones – but a room full of rowdy punters could be interesting,” he said.

Well-known academics such as microbiologist Siouxie Wiles andsociologist Tracey McIntoshwill also present.

The selected bars are in close proximity to one another so attendees may be able to visit up to two lectures on the night.

Golden Dawn manager Nicolas Harrison said events like Raising the Bar were a perfect way for bars to contribute more to the community than just supplying alcohol.

Other locations include Sweat Shop, Birdcage Bar and Fort Street Union.

Registrations opened on July 20 and the public are urged to get in early to secure a bar stool.

Buy, Sell or Hold? A Look at What the Technicals Are Saying About Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) – Sheridan Daily

Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) is on traders radar as the shares have moved above the MACD Histogram line, indicating a bullish trend. Shares recently touched0.275 on a recent bid.

The MACD is calculated by subtracting the value of a 26-day exponential moving average from a 12-day exponential moving average. A 9-day dotted exponential moving average of the MACD (the signal line) is then plotted on top of the MACD. Taking a step further,the MACD-Histogram, which was developed by Thomas Aspray in 1986, measures the distance between MACD and its signal line (the 9-day EMA of MACD).

Like MACD, the MACD-Histogram is also an oscillator that fluctuates above and below the zero line. Aspray developed the MACD-Histogram to anticipate signal line crossovers in MACD. Because MACD uses moving averages and moving averages lag price, signal line crossovers can come late and affect the reward-to-risk ratio of a trade. Bullish or bearish divergences in the MACD-Histogram can alert chartists to an imminent signal line crossover in MACD.

Investors may be taking a look at some additional technical numbers on shares of Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V). The 14-day RSI is currently spotted at 48.02, the 7-day is at 48.96, and the 3-day is sitting at 46.64. The RSI, or Relative Strength Index, is a widely used technical momentum indicator that compares price movement over time. The RSI was created by J. Welles Wilder who was striving to measure whether or not a stock was overbought or oversold. The RSI may be useful for spotting abnormal price activity and volatility. The RSI oscillates on a scale from 0 to 100. The normal reading of a stock will fall in the range of 30 to 70. A reading over 70 would indicate that the stock is overbought, and possibly overvalued. A reading under 30 may indicate that the stock is oversold, and possibly undervalued.

In terms of CCI levels, Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) currently has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 13.23. Investors and traders may use this indicator to help spot price reversals, price extremes, and the strength of a trend. Many investors will use the CCI in conjunction with other indicators when evaluating a trade. The CCI may be used to spot if a stock is entering overbought (+100) and oversold (-100) territory. The 14-day ADX is 14.94. Many technical chart analysts believe that an ADX reading over 25 would suggest a strong trend. A level under 20 would indicate no trend, and a reading from 20-25 would suggest that there is no clear trend signal. The ADX is typically plotted along with two other directional movement indicator lines, the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI). Some analysts believe that the ADX is one of the best trend strength indicators available.

Investors may be studying other technical indicators like the Williams Percent Range or Williams %R. The Williams %R is a momentum indicator that helps measure oversold and overbought levels. This indicator compares the closing price of a stock in relation to the highs and lows over a certain time period. A common look back period is 14 days. Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V)s Williams %R presently stands at -37.50. The Williams %R oscillates in a range from 0 to -100. A reading between 0 and -20 would indicate an overbought situation. A reading from -80 to -100 would indicate an oversold situation. Looking at some moving average levels on shares of Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V), the 200-day is at 0.29, the 50-day is 0.28, and the 7-day is sitting at 0.28. Moving averages can help identify trends and price reversals. They may also be used to help spot support and resistance levels. Moving averages are considered to be lagging indicators meaning that they confirm trends. A certain stock may be considered to be on an uptrend if trading above a moving average and the average is sloping upward. On the other side, a stock may be considered to be in a downtrend if trading below the moving average and sloping downward.

Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) Needle Moving 3.77% – The Times

Shares ofGolden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) is moving on volatility today3.77% or 0.01 from the open.TheTSXV listed companysaw a recent bid of0.275 on34000 volume.

Investors paying close attention to the daily ebbs and flows of the stock market may be trying to guess which way momentum will swing into the next couple of months. Finding those stocks that are ready to ride the lightning may not be the easiest task with markets chugging along near all time highs. Investors may have to first figure out how much risk they want to take on when picking the next round of stocks. Once the risk appetite is determined, investors can start to decide whether they think it is best to go with the flow or buck the trend. Either way, paying attention to short-term and long-term price moves may help paint a clearer picture of what is happening with a particular stock. Maybe those stocks that were sure-fire winners a few months ago have lost some steam. Adjusting the portfolio may or may not be necessary, but knowing exactly what stocks are owned and how they are performing may help with additional decision making along the way. Of course nobody wants to be on the outside looking in as a stock is taking off, but there should be plenty of other opportunities in the future. Staying current with global economic conditions and keeping a finger on the pulse of the company during earnings season can help shed some light on where the stock may be headed next.

Digging deeping into the Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) s technical indicators, we note that the Williams Percent Range or 14 day Williams %R currently sits at -58.33. The Williams %R oscillates in a range from 0 to -100. A reading between 0 and -20 would point to an overbought situation. A reading from -80 to -100 would signal an oversold situation. The Williams %R was developed by Larry Williams. This is a momentum indicator that is the inverse of the Fast Stochastic Oscillator.

Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) currently has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 35.90. Active investors may choose to use this technical indicator as a stock evaluation tool. Used as a coincident indicator, the CCI reading above +100 would reflect strong price action which may signal an uptrend. On the flip side, a reading below -100 may signal a downtrend reflecting weak price action. Using the CCI as a leading indicator, technical analysts may use a +100 reading as an overbought signal and a -100 reading as an oversold indicator, suggesting a trend reversal.

Currently, the 14-day ADX for Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) is sitting at 15.99. Generally speaking, an ADX value from 0-25 would indicate an absent or weak trend. A value of 25-50 would support a strong trend. A value of 50-75 would identify a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would lead to an extremely strong trend. ADX is used to gauge trend strength but not trend direction. Traders often add the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) to identify the direction of a trend.

The RSI, or Relative Strength Index, is a widely used technical momentum indicator that compares price movement over time. The RSI was created by J. Welles Wilder who was striving to measure whether or not a stock was overbought or oversold. The RSI may be useful for spotting abnormal price activity and volatility. The RSI oscillates on a scale from 0 to 100. The normal reading of a stock will fall in the range of 30 to 70. A reading over 70 would indicate that the stock is overbought, and possibly overvalued. A reading under 30 may indicate that the stock is oversold, and possibly undervalued. After a recent check, the 14-day RSI for Golden Dawn Minerals Incis currently at 47.98, the 7-day stands at 50.82, and the 3-day is sitting at 61.44.

Although the partys members of parliament have distanced themselves from their neo-nazi roots, they are suspected of ordering supporters to attack refugees, migrants and political opponents.

Several senior party officials, including the group’s founder Nikos Michaloliakos, areon trial in connection with the murder of a leftist rapperin 2013.

Investors might be looking at their stock holdings and trying to gauge which ones will break out to new highs. Many investors will keep a close eye on stocks that are trading near popular marks such as the 52-week high. Stocks trading near 52-week lows also tend to garner additional attention. When a stock is flirting with a new 52-week high, investors may have to decide whether to cash in to lock in profits or wait to see if a breakthrough is going to happen. Companies that are teetering near the 52-week low may be worth taking a look at. Studying the fundamentals may show that the stock should be performing better than it is. This might be the time to think about purchasing shares that for whatever reason may have fallen out of favor with investors. Crunching the numbers and doing full analysis of stocks that have been trending down may help lead to some discoveries that could turn out to be highly valuable if and when the momentum shifts to the upside.

Exploring the river beaches and extraordinary wildlife of Brazil’s alternative Amazon – Wanderlust

Alex Robinson discovers a land of rhythmic cities, wild archipelagos and the Tapajs a white-sand wonder unlike anywhere else in Brazil. On his way he encounters capybara and river dolphins The trees parted at the top of the ridge and Alter do Cho lay at our feet. The rainforest gently dropped to a lagoon crowned with a lush hill and spanned by twin back-to-back half-moon bays of snow-soft white sand. Wooden fishing boats bobbed on the horizon and the long sweep of Ponta do Cururu beach stretched into the water like white silk on ultramarine. Inland, the wall of dark green trees ran unbroken by roads or cities for 2,500 kilometres. The floral scents of the forest mixed with the warm air wafting in from the bays, islands and beaches. This could have been the coast of Thailand, but I was actually on the banks of a Brazilian river the Tapajs a clearwater tributary of the Amazon set deep in lowland tropical forest. Beach at Alter do Cho (Alex Robinson) While most travellers access the forest from the Andes through Peru or Ecuador Id chosen to visit a very different stretch, closer to the rivers mouth in Brazil, where vast waterways flowed as wide as small seas. On TV, the Amazon was always being wandered by sweaty, insect-baffled explorers with thick trousers tucked into their socks, but with new flights bringing this region within easy reach, I wanted to see an alternative side to this legendary river: balmy, beach-lined and bug-free. My flight had brought me to Belm, the capital of Amazon-Brazils Par state. From above, its cluster of jagged concrete spires appeared almost overrun by great swathes of forest, except where a huge chocolate-brown river dotted with tankers scythed through the green. Stepping off the plane, the air hit me immediately: aromatic, as warm as melting butter and energised by the hot, bright sunlight. Welcome to the Amazon, said my guide, Gelderson. We drove through streets of handsome colonial houses lined with towering mango trees and flowering jacarandas, stopping to drop my bags at the hotel before walking down to the riverfront. Here, a glass-fronted restaurant complex had taken over an old quayside warehouse that was, in turn, watched over by an ancient Portuguese fort, its battlements punctured with rusted cannons. The Amazon is cities, too, Gelderson insisted, and promised a crash course in Belms urban culture. Lets start with the food, he smiled. The tacaca (prawn soup) that arrived was spiced with jambu leaves and tangy with tucupi, a sauce made from manioc juice and highly toxic if not prepared correctly. It tingled in the mouth like popping candy. The tambaqui that followed was succulent like steak and had none of that muddy flavour you often get with river fish. I washed it down with sweet bacuri juice, made from an Amazon fruit unique to the forests around Belm. After eating, we wandered incense-filled baroque churches, admired the Renaissance Italian paintings in the lavish rubber-boom-era Opera House and browsed street stalls where forest Amerindians sold bracelets woven with coloured seeds as hard as mountain pebbles. We made our way to the wrought-iron market hall of Ver-o-Peso, inspired by the Belle poque architecture of Gustave Eiffel. The rising city of Belm (Alex Robinson) I stood and watched the men unloading baskets of blackcurrant-dark palm berries and tiger-striped catfish from double-decker wooden riverboats. Night arrived with the cracking of thunder. We drank ice-cold beer at the Ziggy hostel club late into the evening, until the 70-something Dona Onete arrived on stage in her wheelchair, a wicked ear-to-ear grin on her face and a band of exuberant musicians for company. Then no one could keep still. No meio do piti, eu fui cantar carimb (Surrounded by the smell of river fish, I went to sing carimb) she sang, as old men spun wasp-waisted teenagers around in skirt-flying swirls. Her carimb a samba-like rhythm unique to northern Brazil, named after the drum that sets its tempo beat long into the night. L no Ver-o-Peso, urubu sobrevoando (Down at the Ver-o-Peso market as a vulture flew overhead). I woke late the following morning and the day seemed to pass in a haze of food, music and dance. But then it was time to leave the city and head into the wild. At the airport, Gelderson pressed a bottle of rum filled with jambu leaves into my hands. Youve had a taste of the urban Amazon, he reminded me, as good as his word. Remember what youre missing and come back soon. The plane climbed and we followed the course of the great river, a glinting artery of reflected sunlight surrounded by endless green. A billion lush stems were broken only by the splashes of colour from solitary flowering trees, flecked rose-pink ibis and soaring black-and-white king vultures. If Belm had been a city, Alter do Cho (half an hours drive from Santarm airport) was barely a hamlet. It also sat sleepily at the mouth of one of the Amazons greatest tributaries: the Tapajs. It was here that my guide, Arkus, who looked as fit and tanned as a Californian surfer, showed me round. It took less than five minutes to see the main plaza but an hour to climb to the outlook and soak in its beauty; the view across the river bays, beaches and islands was more than reward. I drifted to sleep that night serenaded by the music of singing cicadas and tree frogs, eager to dive into nature the following day. In golden dawn light, we walked to the riverfront and stopped at a two-storey riverboat with a polished mahogany galley and swinging hammocks. Arkus introduced me to its captain, Taketomei, a fifty-something man, slim, toned and burnt a fierce nut-brown by the Amazon sun. His father was one of thousands of Japanese economic migrants to have come to the Brazilian Amazon between the First and Second World Wars to trade; there were still whole towns here, like Tom-Au, that were almost entirely Japanese, he told me. Capybara (Alex Robinson) Other passengers joined us onboard: a couple from So Paulo and a local carimb dancer, Eliane, who had long black hair and fierce dark eyes set in an oval face. As we set out across the clear blue river, Eliane explained that she was a Boror Amerindian. We are a new tribe, she told me, her fierce expression warming to a smile, made up of the fragments of many nations who came together at Alter do Cho less than one hundred years ago. Taketomeis mother was also an Amazon tribeswoman, I learned. His parents had fallen in love over a basket of traded vegetables, he said, and, as a boy, he had cruised all the rivers of the Amazon, from the Javari on the distant Peruvian border to the river mouth at Belm, selling groceries to caboclo peasants (indigenous people of mixed African or European descent) and Amerindian villagers. It took us around an hour to cross the 15km-wide Tapajs. We saw river turtles and bubble-gum-pink dolphins as well as snowy-white egrets wading in the shallows, little fish in their beaks. Then we moored on a broad beach that stretched for kilometres along the river, backed by forest. Time to swim, said Eliane, now dressed in a bikini and sporting a sun hat and glasses. I hesitated. What about piranhas? She and Arkus laughed gently. Nothing will bite you here. There arent even mosquitoes on the Tapajs. And they headed along the fluffy talcum-powder beach and splashed into the water. We spent the afternoon walking trails in the national forest reserve, wandering past towering kapok trees, the roots of which looked like flying buttresses. Capuchin monkeys looked curiously down at us from the branches, and iridescent manakin birds as small and fleet as a wren flitted through the understorey. I saw how the local community tapped rubber from the forest, scoring the trees with a metal claw, allowing the sap to collect in a cup before moulding it into sheets and hanging it out to dry like T-shirts on a clothing-line. Monkey in branches of a tree (Alex Robinson) I spent the next few days exploring the wilds around the village. I woke in the morning light to canoe through flooded forest, watching kingfishers dart and fishing eagles glide. I saw dolphins playing at sunset off the tip of the 2km-long Ponta do Cururu beach and, after dark, Arkus and I searched the trees with torches for sloths and night monkeys, their eyes as big and shiny as ten-pence pieces. My last evening here was spent at a beach barbecue at one of the remote lagoons, a short boat-ride from Alter do Cho. As the sun set, a guitar and drums were pulled out and people danced the carimb with hula hoops. Then Arkus built a fire on the sand with driftwood and cooked a freshly caught Surubim catfish on a mesh griddle. The succulent fish came with freshly squashed acai juice and pulpy, tart cupuau fruit. In the boat on the way back, it was as if we were floating on the Milky Way, the starry sky mirrored in the glassy Tapajs water. Id sampled Amazon culture and seen the mossie-free bar beaches, but now I yearned for the Amazon of TV mythology: insects and entangled vines, snakes and crocodiles. And what better way to get close to it than by staying in a floating jungle lodge, bobbing on a tributary just off the Amazon itself? It took a few hours to get there first flying to Manaus, and then taking a jeep and speedboat to Pedro Netos Amazon Eco Adventures lodge on the Urubu River. With Pedro pointing out a wealth of wildlife along the way, we spied metre-long macaws shrieking overhead, black-collared hawks roosting in the trees and a troop of howler monkeys delicately plucking leaves. We arrived at dusk and I quickly slapped on the repellent, almost pleased to see mosquitoes. After a hearty supper of rice, beans and river fish, Pedro bustled me into a metal launch and we headed out in search of crocodiles and caiman. The riverbanks were bursting with life. Tall tiger herons and tiny, delicate jacanas that looked like elongated moorhens stalked the mud, and the air was vibrant with the call of frogs and insects. Pedro shined a bright lamp and caught red eyes drifting across the water. We moved closer and found a caiman as big as a man frozen in the light. It disappeared under the murky surface with a rapid whip of its tail. Over the next few days, I saw boa constrictors, toucans and otters, capybara (sheep-sized guinea pigs) and piranhas, which we pulled gnashing from the river on fishing line baited with giblets. But Pedro saved the most spectacular sight of all for my last day. The Negro meets the Amazon (Alex Robinson) We took a scenic flight out of Manaus and headed over the Rio Negro another of the Amazons tributaries for Anavilhanas, the worlds largest archipelago of river islands. Below us, thousands of green streaks dotted its black water; then we circled back downstream to where the Negro met the Amazon in a swirl of tan and black waters. Divided by different water densities, the rivers flowed side by side, without mixing, to form one huge stream that snaked into the distance. Boats dotted the water and hundreds of tributaries trickled from the forest, stretching as far as I could see in every direction, to every horizon. It was then that I realised I had barely dipped a toe in the Brazilian Amazon. Id seen vibrant jungle cities, vast beach-fringed rivers, tributaries teeming with wildlife, sweeping archipelagos and the magnificent sight of two rivers flowing into one. It was more than I would have experienced had I visited on a typical excursion from one of the Andean countries, yet there was so much more to see.

Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V)’s RCI Heading Towards a Potential Reversal – FLBC News

Shares of Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) are nearing some key technical levels as the Rank Correlation indicator has trending higher over the past few sessions, nearing potential overbought territory. Crossing the 80 mark would suggestthat a chance of a reversal is increasing. The Rank Correlation Index (RCI) is based on an analysis algorithm by Charles Spearman. It uses a combination of price change data and time change data to identify potential changes in market sentiment, thereby exposing turning points. Zero crossings are seen as buy and sell signals, with tops and bottoms yielding overbought and oversold information. While traders are taking a second look at how shares of Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) have been performing lately, we can examine some additional key indicators. A favorite tool among technical stock analysts is the moving average. Moving averages are considered to be lagging indicators that simply take the average price of a stock over a specific period of time. Moving averages can be very useful for identifying peaks and troughs. They may also be used to help the trader figure out proper support and resistance levels for the stock. Currently, the 200-day MA is sitting at 0.29, and the 50-day is 0.28. The 14-day ADX for Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) is currently at 14.94. In general, and ADX value from 0-25 would represent an absent or weak trend. A value of 25-50 would support a strong trend. A value of 50-75 would signify a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would point to an extremely strong trend. Checking in on some other technical levels, the 14-day RSI is currently at 48.02, the 7-day stands at 48.96, and the 3-day is sitting at 46.64. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is a momentum oscillator that measures the speed and change of stock price movements. The RSI was developed by J. Welles Wilder, and it oscillates between 0 and 100. Generally, the RSI is considered to be oversold when it falls below 30 and overbought when it heads above 70. RSI can be used to detect general trends as well as finding divergences and failure swings. At the time of writing, Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 13.23. Developed by Donald Lambert, the CCI is a versatile tool that may be used to help spot an emerging trend or provide warning of extreme conditions. CCI generally measures the current price relative to the average price level over a specific time period. CCI is relatively high when prices are much higher than average, and relatively low when prices are much lower than the average. Investors may be watching other technical indicators such as the Williams Percent Range or Williams %R. The Williams %R is a momentum indicator that helps measure oversold and overbought levels. This indicator compares the closing price of a stock in relation to the highs and lows over a certain time period. A common look back period is 14 days. Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V)s Williams %R presently stands at -37.50. The Williams %R oscillates in a range from 0 to -100. A reading between 0 and -20 would indicate an overbought situation. A reading from -80 to -100 would indicate an oversold situation.

University of Auckland takes lectures to the pub, following international trend – Stuff.co.nz

SHANI WILLIAMS Last updated15:14, July 24 2017 CHRIS SKELTON/STUFF Golden Dawn manager Nick Harrison will be raising his glass to knowledge on August 29. Auckland academics are ditching the lecture theatre for the city’s bars. The University of Auckland will send 20 academics to lecture at 10 Auckland bars as a part of a worldwide initiative next month. The event, called “Raising the Bar”, aims to make education a greater part of the city’s culture by giving the community the chance to engage with leading academics in a friendly, accessible and laid back atmosphere. The initiative originated in New York in 2015 and is designed to break down the perception that higher education deepens socioeconomic inequality by pushing away prospective students. READ MORE: Placebo effect likely behind Te Kiri Gold testimonials, Dr Siouxsie Wiles says Raising the Bar quickly spread to Melbourne, Sydney, San Francisco, London, Hong Kong and now Auckland. University of Auckland director of alumni relations and development Mark Bentley said the lecture topics would reflect the younger “Ted Talk generation”. The sessions, being held on August 29, would be fascinating, quick and informative, he said. Topics will range from life among robots, why terrorists want to kill us, imagining a world without prisons and the brain of sharks. Bentley said pubs had been host to great conversations for as long as they had existed. “Pubs are not about alcohol, they are about friendship and good conversations and we are glad we can continue and expand that worthy tradition,” he said. It is expected more than 1500 Aucklanders will attend the event, with a few locations selling out 24 hours after tickets were released on Friday. Thomas Gregory, who will talk about the human cost of drone strikes at Tom Tom Bar and Eatery, said lecturing in a pub was a dream gig but a little nerve-racking too. “If students get bored of my lectures they usually just sneak out early or twiddle with their phones – but a room full of rowdy punters could be interesting,” he said. Well-known academics such as microbiologist Siouxie Wiles andsociologist Tracey McIntoshwill also present. The selected bars are in close proximity to one another so attendees may be able to visit up to two lectures on the night. Golden Dawn manager Nicolas Harrison said events like Raising the Bar were a perfect way for bars to contribute more to the community than just supplying alcohol. Other locations include Sweat Shop, Birdcage Bar and Fort Street Union. Registrations opened on July 20 and the public are urged to get in early to secure a bar stool.

Buy, Sell or Hold? A Look at What the Technicals Are Saying About Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) – Sheridan Daily

Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) is on traders radar as the shares have moved above the MACD Histogram line, indicating a bullish trend. Shares recently touched0.275 on a recent bid. The MACD is calculated by subtracting the value of a 26-day exponential moving average from a 12-day exponential moving average. A 9-day dotted exponential moving average of the MACD (the signal line) is then plotted on top of the MACD. Taking a step further,the MACD-Histogram, which was developed by Thomas Aspray in 1986, measures the distance between MACD and its signal line (the 9-day EMA of MACD). Like MACD, the MACD-Histogram is also an oscillator that fluctuates above and below the zero line. Aspray developed the MACD-Histogram to anticipate signal line crossovers in MACD. Because MACD uses moving averages and moving averages lag price, signal line crossovers can come late and affect the reward-to-risk ratio of a trade. Bullish or bearish divergences in the MACD-Histogram can alert chartists to an imminent signal line crossover in MACD. Investors may be taking a look at some additional technical numbers on shares of Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V). The 14-day RSI is currently spotted at 48.02, the 7-day is at 48.96, and the 3-day is sitting at 46.64. The RSI, or Relative Strength Index, is a widely used technical momentum indicator that compares price movement over time. The RSI was created by J. Welles Wilder who was striving to measure whether or not a stock was overbought or oversold. The RSI may be useful for spotting abnormal price activity and volatility. The RSI oscillates on a scale from 0 to 100. The normal reading of a stock will fall in the range of 30 to 70. A reading over 70 would indicate that the stock is overbought, and possibly overvalued. A reading under 30 may indicate that the stock is oversold, and possibly undervalued. In terms of CCI levels, Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) currently has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 13.23. Investors and traders may use this indicator to help spot price reversals, price extremes, and the strength of a trend. Many investors will use the CCI in conjunction with other indicators when evaluating a trade. The CCI may be used to spot if a stock is entering overbought (+100) and oversold (-100) territory. The 14-day ADX is 14.94. Many technical chart analysts believe that an ADX reading over 25 would suggest a strong trend. A level under 20 would indicate no trend, and a reading from 20-25 would suggest that there is no clear trend signal. The ADX is typically plotted along with two other directional movement indicator lines, the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI). Some analysts believe that the ADX is one of the best trend strength indicators available. Investors may be studying other technical indicators like the Williams Percent Range or Williams %R. The Williams %R is a momentum indicator that helps measure oversold and overbought levels. This indicator compares the closing price of a stock in relation to the highs and lows over a certain time period. A common look back period is 14 days. Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V)s Williams %R presently stands at -37.50. The Williams %R oscillates in a range from 0 to -100. A reading between 0 and -20 would indicate an overbought situation. A reading from -80 to -100 would indicate an oversold situation. Looking at some moving average levels on shares of Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V), the 200-day is at 0.29, the 50-day is 0.28, and the 7-day is sitting at 0.28. Moving averages can help identify trends and price reversals. They may also be used to help spot support and resistance levels. Moving averages are considered to be lagging indicators meaning that they confirm trends. A certain stock may be considered to be on an uptrend if trading above a moving average and the average is sloping upward. On the other side, a stock may be considered to be in a downtrend if trading below the moving average and sloping downward.

Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) Needle Moving 3.77% – The Times

Shares ofGolden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) is moving on volatility today3.77% or 0.01 from the open.TheTSXV listed companysaw a recent bid of0.275 on34000 volume. Investors paying close attention to the daily ebbs and flows of the stock market may be trying to guess which way momentum will swing into the next couple of months. Finding those stocks that are ready to ride the lightning may not be the easiest task with markets chugging along near all time highs. Investors may have to first figure out how much risk they want to take on when picking the next round of stocks. Once the risk appetite is determined, investors can start to decide whether they think it is best to go with the flow or buck the trend. Either way, paying attention to short-term and long-term price moves may help paint a clearer picture of what is happening with a particular stock. Maybe those stocks that were sure-fire winners a few months ago have lost some steam. Adjusting the portfolio may or may not be necessary, but knowing exactly what stocks are owned and how they are performing may help with additional decision making along the way. Of course nobody wants to be on the outside looking in as a stock is taking off, but there should be plenty of other opportunities in the future. Staying current with global economic conditions and keeping a finger on the pulse of the company during earnings season can help shed some light on where the stock may be headed next. Digging deeping into the Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) s technical indicators, we note that the Williams Percent Range or 14 day Williams %R currently sits at -58.33. The Williams %R oscillates in a range from 0 to -100. A reading between 0 and -20 would point to an overbought situation. A reading from -80 to -100 would signal an oversold situation. The Williams %R was developed by Larry Williams. This is a momentum indicator that is the inverse of the Fast Stochastic Oscillator. Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) currently has a 14-day Commodity Channel Index (CCI) of 35.90. Active investors may choose to use this technical indicator as a stock evaluation tool. Used as a coincident indicator, the CCI reading above +100 would reflect strong price action which may signal an uptrend. On the flip side, a reading below -100 may signal a downtrend reflecting weak price action. Using the CCI as a leading indicator, technical analysts may use a +100 reading as an overbought signal and a -100 reading as an oversold indicator, suggesting a trend reversal. Currently, the 14-day ADX for Golden Dawn Minerals Inc (GOM.V) is sitting at 15.99. Generally speaking, an ADX value from 0-25 would indicate an absent or weak trend. A value of 25-50 would support a strong trend. A value of 50-75 would identify a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would lead to an extremely strong trend. ADX is used to gauge trend strength but not trend direction. Traders often add the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) to identify the direction of a trend. The RSI, or Relative Strength Index, is a widely used technical momentum indicator that compares price movement over time. The RSI was created by J. Welles Wilder who was striving to measure whether or not a stock was overbought or oversold. The RSI may be useful for spotting abnormal price activity and volatility.
