What’s in a Name?   Johnny Cash’s song a “Boy named Sue” and Billy Connolly’s ditty about the streets of Glasgow being full of children called Elvis or Constantine, try to show us the importance of a name. Now while these are amusing, brilliantly written biopics on the lives of these two great writers, both show the significance that a name might have.

Gold is sought after not only for investment purposes, but also for jewellery, manufacturing, and as a standard of value all over the world. The price of gold fluctuates and most recently, the price of gold has broken £1,000 per ounce and appears to be staying that way. But what factors influence and drive the price of gold?
