In the dry valleys , the same effect occurs over a rock base, leading to a desiccated landscape. The sheet has been of recent concern because of the small possibility of its collapse. If the sheet were to break down, ocean levels would rise by several metres in a relatively geologically short period of time, perhaps a matter of centuries. Antarctica contains many other mountains , on both the main continent and the surrounding islands.
Girls as young as 10 sold as sex slaves in South Africa 17 Mar One in three of the identified females who were trafficked for the purposes of sexual exploitation in South Africa last year were girls younger than 18 — with some of them as young as 10, according to human-trafficking expert and University of the Free State researcher Monique Emser. Research conducted in by the research firm LexisNexis, as part of its annual human trafficking index, tracked down 16 women and eight girls, who had been trafficked and sexually exploited, from media reports. Emser said the trafficking of children for sexual exploitation is higher in the Southern African region than other areas in Africa — such as Nigeria and Chad — where children are also often used as mercenaries. She said these attitudes are endemic in South African society and extend beyond men.
