Fire oRal months seems better than someThere are remarkably few employeesn these massive ships The shipping industry was revolutionized by the invention Pack Balance of the shipping container in 1956 that s why we canrder things from China for so little via The Bootlegger's Other Daughter or Wishr any Fundação e Império other website that has suspiciously cheap shippingThe membersf La Battaglia: Guelfi E Ghibellini a Campaldino Nel Sabato Di San Barnaba our merchant navy don t even know what s in the containers they carry though unless it s dangerous flammabler explosive That said most shipping containers are not searched it s all about whether the shipping company declares it at customs Drugs are freuently shipped And in 2003 ABC news successfully shipped uranium from Jakarta to Los Angeles to expose these weaknesses in port barriers the Department f Homeland Security was not amused WILDLIFE Propeller death is somewhat popular in the news especially for manatees though the victims f shipping tend to be whales and dolphins But there s another major hazard created by the industry noise pollutionA very interesting tidbit the week after 911 when ships and airplanes around the US Coast almost halted entirely underwater noise dropped by 6 decibels And whale stress hormones dropped proportionately lower too How do we know that We measure their poo Willow Run on a regular basis apparently It floats And smells We ve trained sniffer dogs who getn boats and help researchers locate it Who knew PIRATES Easily the most interesting chapter to me even if the Somali pirate industry isn t the charming romantic world Exodus: Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching of Captain Kiddr Pirates Pérez and Martina: A Puerto Rican Folktale of the Caribbean as Rose George admonishes us repeatedly because there s just a lot action somef the The Man of Shadows other chapters could run a bit dry When they cross near the Somali coast George makes her wishes known I tell the captain my needs which are vegetarian food and some pirate action SAME Sadly she doesn t get it though the ship does pass some small fast and therefore suspicious looking boats which don t take the bait Nonetheless she gleans a lotf interesting modern day pirate info from the crew and her research The Infidelity Chain of courseInterestingly it s not clear how Somali pirates came to be Some experts think they were local fisherman with their small fast boats they were angry that huge fishing trawlers from faraway lands Taiwan Spain Russian Thailand came to their coast and scraped thecean floors taking and destroying the population Oriana Fallaci: The Journalist, the Agitator, the Legend of lobster tuna and shrimp thereby stealing their livelihood Others think they actuallyriginated as the Somali coast guard and when the national government fell in the 1990s the coast guard turned pirate in about a dayYet another group thinks the priates Rosto de Caveira, Os Filhos da Noite e outros contos originated as inland gangsters who decided to try their luckn the seaNo matter their Fatherland origin today there are probably around 4000 pirates and almost halff those ahve been caught and released some even two three four times It s tough to find a nation willing to prosecute them in their courts With the risk Firetalking of getting caught and tried so low why wouldn t you do it especially when the average Somali citizen will earn around 14000 in their lifetime while a pirate can scoop up twice that inne raid Modern piracy unlike swashbuckler films is largely bloodless As Big Sky Daddy one pirate puts it There is no problem taking a ship It willnly be taxed and released safely There is no harm They can t harm the crew because the crew and the ship is what they ll be paid a ransom for Piracy is a market dependent crime The average profit margin for pirates in 2010 was 25 30% Pirates are the very essence f rational profit maximizing entrepreneurs described in classical economicsFun fact in 2010 Harvard Business School chose Somali piracy as the best business model f the yearBut as the author reminds us as amusing as that might be piracy can sometimes still be violent even if it s not the general rule any Relations between guard and prisoner can go south Captive seafarers
