Now, weak growth, ideological turf wars in the ANC, cynicism and neglect by union bosses and management, and fallout from events such as the police killing of 34 strikers at a platinum mine in 2012 have left that model in tatters.

Birds breed biennially as it takes nearly a year to rear the single chick. Non-breeding birds and juveniles cross the Southern Ocean to feed in South American waters before returning to the breeding areas by circumnavigating the globe. Young birds begin returning to the islands at 3-4 years of age to find mates, and generally start breeding at 6-12 years, and live into their 40s. Southern royal albatross – Albatrosses.

In this case we have a screw that according to researchers is 300 million years old, and like many awkward discoveries in the past, it was found in Russia in the 90’s. Russian scientists found it by chance actually, as they were performing analysis after the fall of a meteorite in the Kaluga region when they came across a mysterious object that resembled a modern-day screw.

Témoignage si vous avez un PB au MAROC : bonne adresse - Planète-Citroën. Bonjour à tous et à toutes, une petite expérience vécue cet été au Maroc avec ma Xantia TD 2.1 125 000 KM.

Fin Août, alors que je suis sur la remontée vers le nord du Maroc, une grosse fuite de LHM sur la roue arrière gauche (faisceau de tubes...). Panique à bord. je passe dans un petit garage marocain (pour ceux qui connaissent : 10 cm de terre huileuse au sol, des outils antiques et des pièces dans tous les coins) qui me dit : la fuite est au dessus de l'essieu arrière, il faut demonter l'échappement et le réservoir..non merci je vais aller jusqu'à une concession Citroën, pas confiance. Je vais jusqu'à Meknes en pissant du LHM (1 litre au 100 KM environ), disons. 30 KM Je trouve la concession qui me dit : on va la passer au pont et on va voir. Au bout de 3 heures donc, ma voiture passe au pont et verdict: fuite derrière essieu, il faut tout démonter, il faut prendre RDV et de toute façon on n'a pas de pièces...Je demande donc un RDV qui m'est proposé sous...10 jours.
