Slaves
SLAVERY is, in the strictest sense of the term, any system in which principles of property law are applied to people, allowing individuals to own, buy and sell other individuals, as a de jure form of property . A slave is unable to withdraw unilaterally from such an arrangement and works without remuneration . Many scholars now use the term chattel slavery to refer to this specific sense of legalised, de jure slavery. In a broader sense, however, the word slavery may also refer to any situation in which an individual is de facto forced to work against their own will. Scholars also use the more generic terms such as unfree labour or FORCED LABOUR, to refer to such situations. However, and especially under slavery in broader senses of the word, slaves may have some rights and protections according to laws or customs. Slavery began to exist before written history, in many cultures . A person could become a slave from the time of their birth, capture, or purchase

Drainage basins connect into other drainage basins at lower elevations in a hierarchical pattern , with smaller SUB-DRAINAGE BASINS, which in turn drain into another common outlet. Other terms used to describe drainage basins are CATCHMENT, CATCHMENT BASIN, DRAINAGE AREA, RIVER BASIN and WATER BASIN. In North America
