Hoffmann, and Clarence King. They began a survey that covered not only geology and geography, but also botany, zoology, and paleontology.

Tradition Has Value

Lastly, there's a lot to be said for tradition. Naming the baby as per Numerology or even for the ancestors can have a positive impact on the baby's future. Even if you take these astrological signs with a pinch of salt, a little bit of extra luck never hurt anyone!..
