Hey Natasha,

My name's Brian. Currently I am assisting with New media marketing here at World Pulses PulseWire. At any rate, I was just becoming hooked into the article that you posted when it stopped reading on page one. I think something may be effecting the website link. Anyway, you should try to upload it again. The topic is certainly pertinent to Pulsewire mission and discussions and I am so happy to see that you are actively using the website. Out of Curiosity, what do you aim to take and add to the PulseWire community? Also, I typically associate the term trafficking with the act of exploiting an individual; interestingly, the exploitation can occur both in the physical sense and or psychologically for victims. How do you define trafficking? Is it the act of forcing people into the trade under false pretenses? Is that just one example? I'm just wanting to pick your brain on the subject. You should post on my page.

Hi Brian, I guess there are

Hi Brian,

I guess there are still technical difficulties Give me yor email address and I'll send you copies of both the paper "Defining Trafficking in Women" (which hopefully will answer yor questions) and the report on migrants sex workers from the former Eastern Bloc in Canada, if you want.
I am not quite sure about my role in PulseWire. At this point, I'm just trying to share some of the resources I have.
