Нет, они сломали именно свое огромное, почти уникальное на планете хозяйство, с его бесценными, бриллиантовыми активами вроде военного…

John Niyo: Stafford trade talks raise pressure — and possibility — for new Lions GM Brad Holmes

Lions ownership didn’t even know who Brad Holmes was a couple of months ago.

If that sounds like a huge leap of faith, it is. But it’s also a huge opportunity for the 41-year-old Holmes to prove himself, tasked with orchestrating a deal that’ll go a long way in charting this franchise’s future, to say nothing of his own.

Эксплуатация человека недочеловеком!?

Эксплуатация человека недочеловеком!? Многие наши соотечественники и практически все западные обыватели твёрдо убеждены в созидающей роли предпринимательства и отсутствии в современном цивилизовано-демократическом обществе эксплуатации. Вместе с тем многочисленные негативные результаты взаимодействия с системой наёмного труда в персонально своих жизнях они легкомысленно относят на самоуправство начальства, низкую «оплату труда», «кризисные явления», «падение курса», приезжих, «макроэкономические проблемы» и т. д., вплоть до хронического невезения. Особенно такого рода представления укоренены в среде лиц, не занятых непосредственно производительным трудом, не видящих отчуждения материального воплощения своей трудовой деятельности. Не только наёмные работники не замечают эксплуатации, наши…
