Consumers of Electronic Complicit in Rape in the Democratic Republic of Congo? There has been widespread recognition that violent conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is fuelled by the mining and trade of its minerals. Equally recognised is the fact that women are the chief victims of ongoing violence in the DRC: symbolically violated and subject to rape as a “weapon of war”. What is less well recognised are the possible links between these two issues in the Congo and the supply-chain which connects both of these issues to consumers.

Buying a commercial transformer that converts to lower voltages (AC or DC) is probably a better thing to do.

DC conversion occures becuse some of the transformers have circuits inside it to do the conversion, but the resultant wave form could still be a little rough and might need to be smoothed by additional circuits.

Relays are similar to a light switch--they don't change the voltage. by electronics Apr 2

Yes I will like to work on 12VDC, but I have been looking around, mostly are using relays to AC. by jenovauh Jan 19

Great: http://www.instructables.com/id/Garduino-Gardening-Arduino/ nice project to start learning about electronics. Be carful around ac-mains voltage; it is dangerous and mistakes can hurt or be fatal. I like to make controllers using low voltages. (transformers are one way to step down the voltage to a safe level). by electronics Jan 19

You are welcome electronics. I am learning too on arduino to automated my planting. by jenovauh Jan 19

lol, timepeaces love that comment ;) by electronics Jul 4

Oops I found the answer. Just though to look in your pearls. Found the sources there. Thx Much by timepeaces Jul 3

Hi just a general Question Where do you find electronic parts to build projects with? The radio shack stores are only good for cables and adapters anymore.
Thx L8trs by timepeaces Jul 3

Pearltrees has changed the limits inside a pearltree, so the tree seems a little more messy then usual--then sorry. Will have to go through the whole tree and work on it I suppose. by electronics Apr 27

Thanks....I appreciate that. Have fun. by spzkaz Mar 14
