Made possible through the Access to Information Act, on February 5, 2016, the Brazilian National Institute Pact for the Eradication of Slave Labor (InPACTO) released the Ministry of Labor’s updated blacklist of 340 companies fined for maintaining workers under slave-like conditions. While agricultural enterprises make up the large majority, textile and construction companies operating in urban areas are not far behind.

Since 2003, the Ministry of Labor began publishing its annual “Laundry List,” as it is known, to deter companies from using slave labor. The blacklist reveals the identity of the owner, business name with registration number, and address. Those blacklisted cannot obtain government loans and participate in public auctions.

One of the technological wizards at CNN is James Clarke and he is Guyanese. James is the Broadcast IT Resource Manager and he has the CNN operation at his fingertips, literally.  Continue reading

Buildings that Wake Up at Night – beautiful structures

Buildings that Wake Up at Night
 
Some structures are designed so they are not only beautiful creations of architecture, but are also dynamic and changing.  One of the ways to achieve this effect is by light and color, that every night transform buildings like the ones you are about to see into unique and exceptionally beautiful structures.
 
The Lotus Building , China 
This colourful building sits at the heart of a lake, and each night it ‘opens’
