China’s Conversion to Communism
How did China become a communist country? What were the major changes the communist government made directly after taking control?All Is Fair in Fair Trade, and Coffee Beans!
Eleanor Roosevelt once said, ” It is not fair to ask others, what you are unwilling to do yourself”. If you agree with this statement, then when did it ever become ok to pay two cents an hour to some factory worker in countries like China, Shri Lanka or India? You would be up in arms if your employer tried to make you work all day for a mere two cents an hour. Even if you worked a twelve hour day, you would only receive 24 cents(providing no taxes were taken off that). In North America, many of us make that in one minute of work. If your employer tried to pull this on you, you would be calling the Ministry of labour citing a long list of complaints against this unfair practice. You might even call your lawyer to report this injustice. As unfair as this sounds, why does it continue to happen across the globe, and do these unfair employment practices have an effect in other areas?UFO’s in China

This then calls for massive support of man-power and human resource to create an enabling atmosphere.The Rescue of The Chilean Miners

With the rescue mission commencing at 2315 on Tuesday (0215 GMT), it took a little over 24 hours to hoist every one of the 33 miners to safety in an operation which will be hailed for years to come, and which will be imprinted on the minds of all who followed the rescue live on television.Keeping Up With International News
