  Encyclopedia: Continent
The idea of the Five Continents is still strong in Europe and Asia, and is represented by the five rings on the Olympic flag.
The other large geologic continents are Sahul and Antarctica, but there are many so-called microcontinents as well: Madagascar, the Seychelles (the northern Mascarene Plateau), New Zealand, New Caledonia, etc., which are splinters of the ancient supercontinent of Gondwana.
During the 20th century, it became accepted by geologists that continents move location on the face of the planet over the geologic timescale, a process known as continental drift, explained by the theory of plate tectonics.

 A Lost Continent Under New York
Lately, according to Dr. Gates, the New York region "has been neglected by geologists." But, he added, the basement rock of the metropolitan area is actually some of the most complex in the United States.
Geologists "paid a lot of attention to the New York region at the turn of the century, especially when the city's water tunnels were being built," said Leonardo Seeber, a research scientist at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University in Palisades, N.Y. Later, the region became "unfashionable," Mr.

 OF ANIMALS PECIULAR TO THE NEW WORLD
Though they had become domestic in Peru, and, of course, had been spread over the adjacent countries; yet, instead of multiplying in the place of the nativity, their number has diminished since the European cattle, which have succeeded wonderfully in all the southern regions of America, were transported thither.
The immense territories of the New World contained not, upon its first discovery, a greater number of inhabitants than what are to be found in one half of Europe.
All those animals which, from their nature, cannot endure cold climates, and even those which, though they could subsist, cannot produce in such climates, are confined, on two or three sides, by seas, which they are unable to traverse, and, on the other, by countries so cold, that they cannot live in them.

 Discovery: The "New World"
The Europeans immediately believed that a new continent had been "discovered" and they called it the "New World." As for Columbus, he never acknowledged or believed that the Americas were anything other than Asia&emdash;he was pretty much the only European who subscribed to this view.
First, it was not a "New World," for the inhabitants of America had known of its existence for at least twenty thousand years.
In those areas, Native Americans who were not decimated by the new European diseases or killed in the conquests died quickly as slaves to their new Spanish masters.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: America
For nearly a century after Columbus, the Spaniards who had first right to baptize the continent, having been its first European occupants, persisted in calling their vast American possessions the "Western Indies." That name was justifiable in so far as the discovery occurred when they were in search of Asia.
Struck by the alleged date of 1497 for Vespucci's first trip to the new continent, he concluded that to the Florentine belonged the honour of the first discovery, and that the New World should hence be named after him.
The European nations which settled the continent of America after its discovery by Columbus, and exerted the greatest influence on the civilization of the New World, were principally five.

 Malbec: Old Grape, New Continent
Today, malbec has found a new home in Argentina (and Chile, to a lesser degree) where it is slowly but surely getting the love it deserves while kicking some serious bung in the marketplace.
One of the factors contributing to the decline of malbec in the old world is its nomenclature: malbec is called by so many different names in France that its names have come to mean almost nothing there.
Malbec's new world persona is reminiscent of California merlot: strong on fruit and structure, amenable to barrel fermenting and oak aging, enough tannin to let you know you've tasted something real, but smooth and user-friendly at the same time.
