The art world is currently undergoing a global renaissance of sorts as buyers around the globe seek to add new pieces and classics to their collections. Thanks in part to the emergence of popular street artists like Banksy, urban art is becoming the new must-have for the affluent and those looking to invest in something new and different.
A 2013 report from the Stanford Graduate School of Business found, Art has been emerging as a new asset class for the well-diversified portfolio The index of fine art sales, used by art advisers to sell art funds, shows an average annual return of 10% over the past four decades, as written by Arthur Korteweg in the report.

There is no feeling more spectacular than sitting on your private verandah and looking out onto the pristine ocean, awesome glaciers and the natural wildlife that defines the wonder that is Alaska.
There is no doubt in 2006 Alaska was a hot spot among travelers. The call of the wild was strong and people were flocking to be a part of some of mother natures most beautiful and magnificent creations. Cruises were selling out two to three months prior to the season starting in May and you couldn't find a good discount anywhere.
However we've seen an interesting turn of events for 2007. The Alaska cruise season is well underway and there is still space available, plus we are experiencing some record low prices. With close-in 7 day Alaska cruises starting as low as $399 you can't afford to stay home. That's less than $60 a day for accommodations, food and entertainment. The value doesn't get hotter than this!
So now that you are sold on an Alaska cruise you ask, "But my cruise departs from Canada and I haven't received my passport yet?" Well we've got news for you. Due to the unusually long wait for processing, you will be excited to know that the US Department of State has just made an announcement that US citizens traveling to Canada who have applied for, but not yet received, their passport can temporarily enter and depart from the US by air with a government issued photo ID and the Department of State official proof of application for a passport through September 30, 2007.
So there is no excuse, your Passport dilemma is solved and your price quandary is definitely solved. Don't miss the boat on this impeccable pricing.
