Two years after exposing slavery in the cocoa plantations of Ivory Coast, a CNN team went back to see how the chocolate industry and the Ivory Coast government were tackling the problem. Watch the documentary, presented by Richard Quest, in full.

    This thing called cocoa, it has a flavour of love for it and human anguish! But all is utilised by someone who is greedy, who his/her value to human dignity isn't etched in his/her mind. it is painful to still see slavery at such a time,such a century, where civilization is passing us slowly. A world that is growing to ease the tensions of racism, radicalism, rigidity and absurdness. you would not expect a human to claim riches at this time yet they are a result of slavery, it's awkwardness, it is a train of human backwarsness. it is sad. But with you,me and all those others collectively who are respector of human, who value human dignity, Slavery is dying, it is being connered, soon we'll kill a burry it.

    You are my savior. Without proper research, your readers will not be interested and you would lose credibility. I bet you make babies smile. Top Google Plus experts would agree with you. It is like you wrote the book on it or something.

    I am a Culinary Arts teacher in Houston, TX. I talk to my students about cooking with chocolate and we spend time discussing the ethics of how it is produced. I have used the link provided here to show Cocoa-nomics to my students, but today was unable to make it work. Is it discontinued? Is there a way I could have a reliable way of showing it? Thanks!

    I use firefox and some nights at 12:00 exactly or 12:30 exactly, firefox stops working and does not load a page. The internet connection is perfectly fine though because it says excellent. I am connected to a home router and the signal strength is always excellent. I do not know why this happens at exactly 12:00 or 12:30 on my desktop time but it's a pain. I've tried "ping"ing and everything looks fine..

    I will also like to convey that most people that find themselves with out health insurance are usually students, self-employed and people who are not working. More than half with the uninsured are really under the age of Thirty five. They do not come to feel they are wanting health insurance since they are young and also healthy. The income is frequently spent on real estate, food, and entertainment. Some people that do go to work either 100 or not professional are not presented insurance by means of their jobs so they head out without with the rising price of health insurance in the usa. Thanks for the ideas you share through this web site.

    I enabled comments on my blogger page but it only shows the comments link, and when it's clicked, a new page opens to show the comments. Is there a way to just have the comments show on my main page right underneath the blog, I don't want just a link to the comments page..

    I just went on Blogspot and made a blog, I want to make it for invited members only. I've seen blogs like that, but I don't know how to do it myself. I already made it so that my blog isn't visible from my profile, but I don't know what to do next..
