B.B.C. Article
A Chinese container ship has become the first vessel to sail into the newly expanded Panama Canal.
Thousands gathered as the ship, called Cosco Shipping Panama, entered from the Atlantic en route to the Pacific.
Construction on the new lane for the canal, which runs for 77km (48 miles), began in 2007 and was due to finish in 2014.
But strikes and disputes over costs delayed the $5.2bn project (£3.8bn) project.

Welcome to globalisation and the race to the bottom. And an added joy, a world full of workers paid starvation wages is very democratic, and they will be the LUCKY ones. Half of all workers, perhaps more than half, won't have jobs at all.

And yet people still vote for the right, the very people who are whores for massive globalized corporations that are a threat to people, governments and smaller business everywhere.
