Rowing across the Atlantic Ocean may be an extreme test of human endurance but an all female crew who completed the feat discovered a secret tactic to ease the physical burden - rowing nude.
"We spent a lot of time rowing naked because when the sea water gets inside your clothes it increases friction against your skin which can cause sores," says Debbie Beadle, Skipper of the Row for Freedom team.
The trip followed a route previously used to transport slaves between Europe and the Americas in the 19th century, raising money for UK-based anti-human trafficking charities the A21 Campaign and ECPAT UK.
Depictions of galley slaves show them rowing naked. Maybe this wasn't just a dehumanizing situation.
At issue here is the implementation and ietorprntatien of EU procurement rules. Which is the dullest subject in Christendom, (albeit one that is currently making my life difficult) but probably does explain why the tender was awarded to the Salvation army. If they undertake to operate in accordance with existing equality and diversity law which they no doubt have done then it comes down to cost and quality issues and depends how its weighted. The fact that someone make feel uncomfortable using their services (which is a point I agree with) is unlikely to factor in to this process unfortunately. There is a LOT of pressure on the public sector over procurement currently unless there was a specific, successful, legal challenge about religious organisations delivering these services, it's likely to keep happening, if they just claim to tick the right boxes.
I totally agree, Mot. The issue about procurement and procurements on the sally who, are not available yet to the masses but will still be signed and dried for the latest issuers who are fond of making them so.
just wanna know who and what i can do to help
Come on CNN.....you should know the unspoken rule of the web-world.....pics or it never happened! I'm guessing it never happened.
you need to see pictures, you are a pervert. can't get off if no pictures. what?
You can't, Paul? LOL
I'm into spinning at the memnot. I found an old wheel at a Revolve shop (like a tip shop?) and found in almost working order nothing a rubber band couldn't fix, anyway.I had it for almost 6 months before I figured out how it worked, but now I've got it going, I'm completely addicted.I like it because I can zone out when it's working it's quite calming (when it's not working, and I can't work out why, it's one of the most frustrating things I've ever known), with the added bonus that there's artists out there addicted to dying fibre who I can support with my own addiction to spin it into yarn!
I have seen pictures from the 1950 taken in Ivory Coast were outside of the cities the local folks were totally nude !
I don't think that rowing in the nude was a form of humiliation for the slaves !
This 21st century slavery there people responsible in the patronage. CNN can provide there sponsor
i was really touched with this display...theres a lesson in it for all of us........theres nothing too much that we cant sacrifice to make the world a better place to live in.
Nothing like rowing across the glass smooth Arctic waters with a bunch of naked viking warriors!
I wanted to knit socks for years and tried a nbmuer of times with no success. About three years ago I was introduced to the magic loop technique and viola! I did it. I haven not made many socks but I love them. I have the same sock yarn addiction you have. I think I have yarn to make about 45 pair by now. I am currently working on the first pair for myself.I love making them for my kids.
