Chocolate and African Child Labor

Chocolate and African Child Labor

Business, General
Most people in the West love eating chocolate, yet have little idea about where the cocoa beans come from that make up modern chocolate products like chocolate bars and cocoa powder. Chocolate and Child Labour It turns out over 50 percent of the cocoa beans used in commercial production come from The Ivory Coast in Africa, or Cote d’Ivoire (the government of this country discourages the use of the English translation Ivory Coast, preferring the French.) Unfortunately, lots of child labour bordering on slave labour is used in these cocoa plantations. Chocolate manufacturers in the West have agreed to something called the Harkin-Engel protocol (named after two US politicians) which entails an agreement from manufacturers to clean up their supply lines and make sure no child o

How To Build Relationships With Other Departments At Work

Career, General
Building and retaining cross-department relationships can positively impact large scale projects that affect more than one department in an organization.

Effects Of Parkinson’s Disease May Lead To Lose Wife, Job, Savings: True Story

General, Health
The treatment of Parkinson's disease can create some brutal side-effects, something police, social workers and judges are well aware of. The public, however, generally is not aware that this disease is so difficult to treat.

One of the best ways to teach your kids how to balance them is by gifting a kids’ scooter. It is a well known fact that they learn art of balancing when they learn to stand on their feet. However, here we are talking about the art of balancing on wheels and this may be little tricky and difficult at times. Kids’ scooters or mini micro scooters help kids learn such art. What really helps them is a better understanding of their own center of gravity when they ride these. The way the center of gravity changes when they take a turn or stand on it make them understand the functioning of reflexes.
