The Central Mexican Ranges are essentially the various Sierra Madre ranges of Mexico, the high central volcanoes, and the high plateaus they surround. Most of the borders of this area are distinct and natural: The Gulf Of Mexico, the low ithmus of Tehuantepec, the Pacific Ocan and the Sea of Cortez, and the Rio Grande. The only unclear border is to the northwest, where the Basin and Range country of the U.S. Southwest meets the Sierra Madre Occidental in the state of Sonora.
The parts of Mexico excluded from this grouping are Baja California, the basin and range country of Sonora, and, in the southeast of Mexico, Chiapas (topographically part of Central America) and the Yucatan.
Within this area are the three Sierra Madres: Occidental, Oriental, and Sur. Running east-west, below the Sierra Madres Occidental and Oriental and north of the Sierra Madre del Sur, is the very loosely bounded Cordillera Neovolcanica, the row of volcanoes running from Colima to Orizaba. In the north, between the Occidental and Oriental Sirra Madres, is a large indistinct meseta or plateau.
These ranges are high, with 3000m/10,000' peaks relatively common in most areas. But due to either low latitude or low rainfall, there is little snow and no glaciation outside of the three highest volcanoes of the Neovolcanica.

Man of Steel opened yesterday, a much-anticipated reboot of the story of Superman¡¯s origins. The title character is played by British actor Henry Cavill, who appeared at the June 12 U.K. premier of the movie in London sporting a Tom Ford suit and an Omega Seamaster wristwatch.
It has been reported that in 2005 Cavill was a contender to www.attrinity.com
play the new James Bond in Casino Royale, which hit theaters in 2006. Apparently, the producers found him too ¡°young¡± for the role at the time, and it was given to Daniel Craig. This is interesting because both James Bond and Daniel Craig are Omega ambassadors, though both of their model choices generally fall in the sporty Seamaster direction.
The version of the elegant Omega Seamaster that Cavill sports includes an annual calendar function. This replica omega Seamaster
addition to the automatic movement displays day and date, and will only need to be manually corrected on March 1 due to the differing lengths of February. One very notable thing about the Seamaster¡ªand every other movement now made by Omega¡ªis that it contains the Co-Axial escapement invented by Dr. George Daniels and serialized by Omega over the course of more than ten years to make it perfect for use in a wristwatch movement. The finely finished movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back of this officially certified chronometer¡ªwhich means that the movement has undergone a series of grueling tests performed by Switzerland¡¯s Contr?le Official Suisse de Chronom¨¨tres (C.O.S.C. for short), a non-profit organization established in 1973 in Switzerland to certify accuracy. The version that Cahill wears is housed in a 41 mm red gold case that is water-resistant to 100 meters. On a brown leather strap it retails for $23,900 in the United States.
