On April 10, , Latino immigrants and their allies took to the streets in more than cities throughout the United States to advocate for comprehensive immigration reform. As news reports documented rallies from Charleston, South Carolina to Indianapolis, Indiana; from Jackson, Mississippi to Garden City, Kansas, they highlighted the complex physical, cultural, and economic contours of a new map of Latino presence in the United States. Although the policy impact of this mobilization remains to be seen, one thing is perfectly clear: The cartographies of settlement for Latino and Latina immigrants have shifted in recent decades, and as Latinos filled the streets in protest, they mapped these shifts onto the landscapes of cities and towns throughout the United States.

This growth reflects one of the most important demographic shifts captured in the last census. Historically, Latinos have been concentrated in a handful of "immigrant gateway cities. The arrival of Latinos to these communities has met with a mixed response. For employers, Hispanic workers represent a critical source of cheap labor which, in many cases, is deliberately recruited for jobs in meat packing, poultry processing, agriculture and other such labor-intensive industries. Many of these employers, in defense of their hiring practices, praise Hispanics for their "work ethic Leiter, Hossfeld and Tomaskovic-Devey ; Powers In a recent Washington Post story, demographer William Frey links this hostility to the defeat of the recent immigration reform bill.

Migrant and seasonal farmworkers in the United States are now overwhelmingly immigrants from Mexico. Pesticide exposure among these farmworkers is a major occupational health concern; however, little research has considered the agricultural pesticide use and safety experiences of these workers in their communities of origin. This analysis uses survey data collected by the PACE project to delineate the farming and pesticide use experiences of Mexican-born farmworkers in North Carolina. Almost two-thirds of those farmworkers with farming experience had used pesticides, but only about one-third of those who used pesticides had received pesticide safety training or information. Most of those who used pesticides had used some form of safety equipment. Those who had worked as hired farm labor in Mexico were more likely to have used pesticides and safety equipment, and to have received safety training and information. Those who spoke an indigenous language at home rather than Spanish were less likely to have used pesticides and to have received safety training and information.

Access options available:. This paper explores the social consequences of Latino immigration to a small town in rural North Carolina. Hundreds of Mexicans and other Latinos have settled in Siler City in the last 10 years to work in one of two large poultry operations. Inter-ethnic competition for these factory jobs has reverberated in the local housing market, the education system, and elsewhere in the community. The poultry industry itself has expanded and concentrated its investments in anti-union southern states such as North Carolina in recent years. The intersection of these dual geographic shifts has reinforced a highly racialized division of labor in rural North Carolina.

Four million workers in the United States are involved in farming and industrial production of food from animal protein. These individuals, many of whom are women and people of color, play a vital role in helping to meet the public health goal of ensuring an accessible supply of nutritious food. Yet many of these individuals are not paid livable wages, they work in hazardous conditions and face discrimination, and some are excluded from certain labor law protections. A sustainable food system must integrate just and equitable labor practices along with the goals of food safety, accessibility, environmental protection, and animal welfare. Health disparities among farmworkers and food production workers can be addressed through policies ensuring that labor laws are extended to farmworkers, labor standards are enforced by government agencies, employers comply with worker safety and wage laws, firms involved in crop production and animal protein processing adopt equitable labor practices, and businesses integrate equitable labor practices into their corporate sustainability programs. More than 4 million workers in the United States are directly involved in tending crops and livestock, picking and packaging produce, and slaughtering and processing meat, poultry, and seafood. Yet, in the case of many of these workers, their job adversely affects their health.

Она снова и снова слышала свое имя.

Это открытие было болезненным, однако правда есть правда. Стратмор скачал файл с Цифровой крепостью и запустил его в ТРАНСТЕКСТ, но программа Сквозь строй отказалась его допустить, потому что файл содержал опасную линейную мутацию. В обычных обстоятельствах это насторожило бы Стратмора, но ведь он прочитал электронную почту Танкадо, а там говорилось, что весь трюк и заключался в линейной мутации.

Сьюзан отнеслась к словам Стратмора скептически. Ее удивило, что он так легко клюнул на эту приманку. - Коммандер, - возразила она, - Танкадо отлично понимал, что АНБ может найти его переписку в Интернете, он никогда не стал бы доверять секреты электронной почте. Это ловушка. Энсей Танкадо всучил вам Северную Дакоту, так как он знал, что вы начнете искать.

 - О Боже, - проговорила Сьюзан, сообразив, в чем дело, - Цифровая крепость зашифровала самое. Стратмор невесело улыбнулся: - Наконец ты поняла. Формула Цифровой крепости зашифрована с помощью Цифровой крепости. Танкадо предложил бесценный математический метод, но зашифровал. Зашифровал, используя этот самый метод.

Как и то, что шахта лифта защищена усиленным бетоном. Сквозь клубящийся дым Сьюзан кое-как добралась до дверцы лифта, но тут же увидела, что индикатор вызова не горит.

В интересах сохранения в тайне этого успеха коммандер Стратмор немедленно организовал утечку информации о том, что проект завершился полным провалом. Вся деятельность в крыле, где размещалась шифровалка, якобы сводилась к попыткам зализать раны после своего фиаско ценой в два миллиарда долларов. Правду знала только элита АНБ - ТРАНСТЕКСТ взламывал сотни шифров ежедневно. В условиях, когда пользователи были убеждены, что закодированные с помощью компьютера сообщения не поддаются расшифровке - даже усилиями всемогущего АНБ, - секреты потекли рекой. Наркобароны, боссы, террористы и люди, занятые отмыванием криминальных денег, которым надоели перехваты и прослушивание их переговоров по сотовым телефонам, обратились к новейшему средству мгновенной передачи сообщений по всему миру - электронной почте.

Так вот почему Дэвид отложил поездку в Стоун-Мэнор. - Сегодня утром я послал за ним машину. Он сказал, что позвонит тебе перед вылетом.

Она загрузила программу Следопыт и, приготовившись отправиться на охоту, взглянула на адрес электронной почты, который вручил ей Стратмор. NDAKOTAARA. ANON.
