The Marvel No-Prize is a fake award given out by Marvel Comics to readers. Originally for those who spotted continuity errors in the comics, the current “No-Prizes” are given out for charitable works or other types of “meritorious service to the cause of Marveldom”. As the No-Prize evolved, it was distinguished by its role in explaining away potential continuity errors. Initially awarded simply for identifying such errors, a No-Prize was later given only when a reader successfully explained why the continuity error was not an error at all.[not verified in body]

History[edit]
The No-Prize, originally implemented in 1964, was inspired by the policies of many other comic book publishers of the time — namely, that if a fan found a continuity error in a comic and wrote a letter to the publisher of the comic,[1] he or she would receive a prize of cash, free comics, or something similar.
When readers began pressuring Marvel to start giving out a similar prize,[citation needed] Stan Lee created the No-Prize — basically as a joke by the Marvel staff on the readers. In Fantastic Four #26, Lee ran a contest asking readers to send in their definition of what “the Marvel Age of Comics” really meant. As part of the letter, Lee wrote “there will be no prizes, and therefore, no losers”.[2] Originally, the “prize” was simply Lee publishing the letter and informing the letter-writer that he or she had won a No-Prize, which was actually nothing.[3]
Other No-Prize contests asked readers questions and rewarded the most creative responses. For instance, one example asked readers for proof of whether the Sub-Mariner was a mutant or not. Winners had their letters printed along with Lee congratulating them on winning a No-Prize.[citation needed] When fans began demanding No-Prizes for no real reason, Lee took on a new approach. Si

Ekebergsletta

Ekebergsletta during the Norway Cup (2009)

Ekebergsletta is a field in the neighborhood of Ekeberg in the Nordstrand district, southeast of downtown Oslo, Norway.[1]
Ekebergsletta is a large grass covered area located on Ekeberg plateau. Originally the area was farmland where crops were cultivated until the 1950s. Shortly after the end of World War II, the idea of an airport for Oslo was entertained for this area. Roald Amundsen had landed his Airship Norge here for a few hours in 1926 on his way to towards the North Pole. The foundation of the mooring mast used by the airship can still be found.
The idea of an airport was ultimately rejected in favor of an area for sports and related activities. Today Ekebergsletta is part of Oslo’s biggest park system and is used primarily for sporting events. Ekebergsletta is commonly associated with the Norway Cup which started here in 1972 and which is still one of several places around Oslo where the game is held.[2]

Ikeda (池田町, Ikeda-chō?) is a town located in Imadate District, Fukui Prefecture, Japan.
As of 2003, the town had an estimated population of 3,597 and a density of 18.47 people per km². The total area is 194.72 km². Ikeda consists mostly of narrow agricultural plains and small villages between steep, 1000–1500 m mountains in a main north-south valley and several branch valleys. The setting of the town, the old shrine in the town center, and a beautiful waterfall on the lower road to Ono are all local landmarks and are praised for their beauty, and occasionally attract tour buses from as far away as Osaka. Ikeda endures heavy snowfall in the winter, and access to neighboring towns, over mountain passes except to the north, can be difficult. The mountain roads leading east to Ono and south from Ikeda to Imajo and the especially dramatic road to Kinomoto in neighboring Shiga Prefecture are officially closed from November to May.
The town is known locally for its “Wine Castle” where varying wines are produced yearly. The affiliation with wine is shared with their sister-city of Penticton, British Columbia, Canada.

The Asscher Diamond Factory former headquarters on the Tolstraat 127 in Amsterdam

The Royal Asscher Diamond Company (Dutch: Koninklijke Asscher Diamant Maatschappij) was founded in 1854 by the Asscher family. The company is responsible for cutting some of the most famous diamonds in the world. Its headquarters still stand at its original location Tolstraat 127 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The company also has regional headquarters in New York City (Royal Asscher of America) and Tokyo (Royal Asscher of Japan).
Royal Asscher is still owned by the Asscher family, a renowned diamond dynasty with a 157-year-old legacy. The Asscher Diamond Company, made famous at the turn of the 20th century by Joseph and Abraham Asscher, became the Royal Asscher Diamond Company in 1980 when it was bestowed with the honor of a Royal Prefix from Queen Juliana of the Netherlands in recognition of the company’s stature both in the Netherlands and across the world. In 2011 Queen Beatrix perpetuated the Royal Prefix for another 25 years.

History[edit]
The establishment of the company[edit]
In 1854 Joseph Isaac Asscher, a known artisan in the diamond industry, established the I.J Asscher diamond company, named for his son Isaac Joseph Asscher, who followed in his father’s footsteps and entered the diamond industry. He passed down his expertise to his two sons, Joseph and Abraham, who become two of the 20th century’s most prodigious diamond experts. Under Joseph and Abraham, the company is known as the Asscher Diamond Company.
The Asscher Cut[edit]
In 1902 Joseph Asscher designed the original Asscher cut. This emblematic cut was the first signature cut to be patented. The Asscher Diamond Company held its exclusive patent until the Second World War and saw strong sales internationally.
The Excelsior diamond[edit]
In 1903, at 997 carats (199.4 g), the Excelsior diamond was the largest diamond ever found. The gem required expert handling to be properly carved: inclusi
