The Most Widely Used Natural Metals in the World

There are many metals that are used in things we see all around us: without metal, modern society could not exist. Of course, some metals are used extensively, while others, although important, are not used as much. The following are the most used metals in the world.

Iron and Manganese
These two metals go hand in hand. This is because they are the main components of steel. There are different types of steel on the market, but the main attraction to steel is that it is lighter than iron and much stronger. In fact, it is manganese used with carbon that produces steel from iron metal. Steel is used in buildings, bridges, cars, and any other application where strength and durability are needed.

This metal is known to many people because of soda pop cans, but its value in aviation is the most important to society. Aluminum is a strong metal, but it is also light weight; therefore, it is used as the primary metal to build aircraft. In fact, without aluminum, there would be no modern aviation. There are different needs that manufacturers have in aluminum. Examples are the characteristics of corrosion, temperature and tensile strength; therefore, there are many aluminum alloys on the market. One of the most popular is the 2219 alloy. This combines a small amount of copper to the aluminum to produce a much stronger metal than aluminum is in its purest form.

Most people think of pennies when they think of copper, but this important metal has many great uses. The most notable is for use as a conductor in the world of electronics and electricity. The most important product is wire used to conduct electricity. Although there are many types of wire, most of them have copper or a copper alloy as the basic metal. The reason for this is the outstanding conductive properties that copper has. It is true that there are a couple of metals with better conductive characteristics, such as silver, but they are too expensive to be used in common applications Copper has the best combination of conductivity versus cost among all of the metals.

These metals are as important today as they have ever been. Engineers continue to work on the development of alloys to improve performance of these metals, and you can also see the importance of these metals because they are always in demand to be recycled.

Exhilarating, breathtaking and one of a kind! Aaron Crow Fearless


If you like to watch live performance, don't forget to watch this World Famous Silent Mentalist, Aaron Crow at Resorts World Genting. 

Exhilarating, breathtaking and one of a kind! #AaronCrowFearless

With his fusion of magic, suspense, risky stunts and mystery, Aaron is able to capture the attention of a crowd without uttering a single word. His unmatched power and eloquent silence has long since become his onstage trademark, always leaving you to at the edge of your seat. Yes, heart trembling moments when you saw this performance. 

Dubbed Belgium's foremost international television sensation, Aaron has also appeared in numerous TV and gala shows including the popular "Le Plus Grand Cabaret Du Monde" that featured his Candle and Sword act a whopping three times! Just like the photo below...
Please take note that, you cannot try this at home! Don't try these acts at home.

Aaron has also appeared in the biggest TV shows in the world and was recently featured in Broadway New York, London West End and the iconic Sydney Opera House.

Often described as mental artiste extraordinaire or silent mentalist, the Belgian has impressed even the likes of Simon Cowell, and is well-decorated - he was ranked first at the World Championships of Magic, the largest competition of its kind that is held every three years. There, he battled against 150 other world renowned acts infront of a crowd of 2,500 people.

His most popular acts are "Supravasion", the most spectacular blindfold act int he world, "Bowman" which is an unseen combination of bravery and love that will touch you, and "The Final Bullet" in which Aaron attempts to catch a signed bullet shot at 300 Bar from a paintball machine gun. Highly original and authentic, his routines are performed in silence with the exception of some spine-tingling eerie music in the background.

Among Aaron's other international achievements were winning World Champion Mentalism at the 2003 Den Haag XXII World Championships and winning the Wizard Trophy (Phenomenon category) last year. 

One of Houdini's well-known acts involved swallowing needles! Coincidence or not, Aaron himself had an early encounter with needles - he was rushed to a hospital with a needle stuck in his throat at the age of three. 

At Resorts World Genting, Aaron's "Fearless! Cheating Death Nightly" promises to deliver his unique brand of magic and mystery. The show will be held at the Genting International Showroom daily from 18 March to 15 May 2016, 9pm; the matinee show at 4pm. 

The heart-stopping, thrilling and truly spectacular acts that will leave you thinking what happen next.
