Many have no official papers or visas leaving them particularly vulnerable to the power of their employers, who can sack and deport them at any sign of trouble, i.e., if they complain about working conditions or join a trade union. Around 50% of workers on Costa Rican pineapple plantations are hired through subcontractors who provide a flexible, low paid and non-unionised workforce.

They also allow the producing companies to avoid direct responsibility for ensuring adequate working conditions in line with national and international labour laws.

If you’ve already moved away from Billboard music, congratulations, you refuse to be insulted.

Andrew Powell-Morse of SeatSmart studied the “Lyric Intelligence” of 225 Billboard songs in the Pop, Country, Hip-hop, and Rock genres that spent three or more weeks parked at the top of the charts to analyze any changes over the course of ten years.

Act normal If you are a high-risk source, avoid saying anything or doing anything after submitting which might promote suspicion. In particular, you should try to stick to your normal routine and behaviour. 3. Remove traces of your submission If you are a high-risk source and the computer you prepared your submission on, or uploaded it from, could subsequently be audited in an investigation, we recommend that you format and dispose of the computer hard drive and any other storage media you used. In particular, hard drives retain data after formatting which may be visible to a digital forensics team and flash media (USB sticks, memory cards and SSD drives) retain data even after a secure erasure. If you do this and are a high-risk source you should make sure there are no traces of the clean-up, since such traces themselves may draw suspicion. 4. The Zeta Reticuli Exchange Program - Intro.

Voici la première maison solaire-hydrogène 100% autosuffisante

Une construction qui allie la technologie solaire à un système de production d’hydrogène à l’échelle de la résidence privée afin de garantir une autonomie totale et prolongée. Découverte. Les types d’habitats alternatifs se multiplient à une vitesse éclair. De la tiny-house, à la ferme retapée en passant par des concepts plus modernes, on en trouve désormais pour tous les goûts et surtout tous les budgets.

Objectif partagé, constituer un habitat écologique, souvent autonome et à l’impact environnemental limité qui puisse répondre aux attentes de tous en matière d’espace ou de confort. En matière d’originalité, le projet Phi Suea n’en manque pas. Les batteries au lithium, c’est aujourd’hui le gros point faible de la production d’électricité d’origine solaire. De cette manière, les familles qui vivront dans la Phi Suea pourront jouir d’une autonomie énergétique jour et nuit en limitant leur empreinte avec une efficacité jamais atteinte.
