12:41 am
from other places. and they put this on the lava flows on isolated options. so probably the future will, they will do the same. i mean, they will transport thousands of cubic meters and they covered a lot of flow, so they will, they will have new plantations. i mean the, the only way to recover once the lava has cooled, there is a chance that some of the land may be reclaimed in the coming months and years. but for the farmers, all they can do is wait for the option to end. while they hope that the help provided by the government is enough to see them through the year. the bananas are the engine of the economy on the canary islands accounting for 30 percent of jobs. the spanish government has designated more than $16000000.00 in financial aid to help farmers recover. local officials say the government should do more. they are you looking to see where the dental shanina, the 14000000 euros of a to been provided to the community is

12:49 am
game consoles and other hardware. a facebook is dreaming of a web of met her versus interacting perfectly with those created by other tech companies as such as google, apple, and games create hers. i think that this is based on a very long mud, a dream or a dream that has happened already a lot, even in science fiction, literature and movies actually having this online space that is the cyberspace where people can do exactly the same activities as we can in the offline world. now imagine the metaphors as an amplification of such environments where you can have new payment mechanisms. you can have new types of digital content and basically new consumer products. i think it's germany, france, and ireland that would immediately benefit from different organizations that would be built by facebook and then attracting tens of thousands of employees. the idea is by really creating these products in the european sphere. we could look at how
