With its 200 mm average annual rainfall, the Khanasser Valley is generally considered too dry to grow olives. However, before ICARDA got involved with olives at this place, a few olive groves already existed in the flat valley bottom and at homesteads, the oldest being established in the late 1970s (Tubeileh et al., 2004). Since 1997, the valley experienced a steady increase in the number of olive trees planted each year. In the main olive growing area (i.e. the Eastern hill sides of Jabal al Hoss, between Raheb and Harbakiyeh villages). In 2003 we counted more than 11,000 ...
and the use of the means of production. Socialism is a set of social and economic arrangements based on a post-monetary system of calculation, such as labour time , energy units or calculation-in-kind . Socialists advocate a method of compensation based on individual merit or the amount of labour one contributes to society.

They argue that this creates an unequal society that fails to provide equal opportunities for everyone to ...

Schumer's "Shareholder Bill of Rights Act of 2009": The Say on Pay ...
This week New York Sen. Chuck Schumer is expected to introduce the Shareholder Bill of Rights Act of 2009. The stated goal of the legislation -- "to prioritize the long-term health of firms and their shareholders" -- is commendable. The trouble is that its provisions actually encourage the opposite.

It would grant stockholders a new right to include their own director nominees in the corporation's proxy statement. The bill would put an end to staggered boards at all companies (the traditional option of electing one-third ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

He expressed his hopes for rebuilding ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Recently our crews have begun resisting changes, as issued by the owner, complaining of low pay, distrust, and unequal treatment. Productivity is in sharp decline, service calls are on the rise, and customer complaints are increasing. In a couple of weeks, I will be introducing a fleet management system paired with new disciplinary ...
