urs bookmark

According to their website, "URS Corporation is a leading provider of engineering, construction and technical services for public agencies and private sector companies around the world." What does this mean? Well, they list a number of things they do, including: nuclear, hydroelectric, and other power systems, air, rail and mass transit systems, mining, chemicals and pharma, ports and pipelines, NASA and space operations (whatever that means), international aid, homeland security and disaster response, environmental management and military training.

From their FAQ section under the Careers heading, they note: "
We maintain offices in countries around the world and we employ approximately 46,500 people. Our headquarters is in San Francisco, CA." I looked around a little, and they have offices all over the place, from Angola to New Zealand to Vietnam.

Its looks like they're everywhere and do everything!

This bookmarker is one of those concentric ring magnifiers, called a Fresnel lens, that you can lay flat on text or an image and pump up the size a little. I've stuck a couple of stamps from my collection behind there so you can see some of the funky effects this type of lens has. This bookmarker was a gift, so thanks to Alyson!

I wonder if URS made this bookmark, or if the had it manufactured for them?
