Globalization- making the world stronger or weaker?

Globalization makes the world stronger together. It unites the people, joins companies, and creates allies amongst countries. Before the 1960’s, there was not much globalization. After countries such as the U.S., England, and Germany stopped manufacturing because of wages increasing. So they moved manufacturing to low wage countries such as China, Taiwan and South Korea. This created a trust between countries. These countries cooperated in many things with the countries giving the designs to the countries with lower wages gave jobs, and the countries with low wages gave less paying work and the inventory they need. With globalization, tariffs are reduced and free trade is increased. This means items can travel from countries for less. If you order a teeshirt from China, there will be less shipping than before globalization. Globalization brought these countries together and created allies.

There are many dangers to climbing mt Everest

Climbing Mt Everest is not worth the risk. There have been 215 deaths on the mountain and many injuries. The average cost of the trip is around 70,000 per person. There are many factors that oppose climbing Mt Everest. Being able to have touched the sky or be on top of the world is a huge accomplishment, but there are just too many risks. You have to climb up so high that there are many problems. The altitude is too high so you have to acclimatize, or you have to get used to the lack of oxygen. Many people have trouble climbing because it takes 75% of your energy just to breathe at the altitudes. Near the top of the mountain, many storms occur. You may be caught in a hurricane or blizzard. Most of the times, when people are stuck in these storms they cannot escape them. The storms keep the people at the top of the mountains and freeze them.

This is what a good citizen looks like.

A good citizen obeys laws, have responsibilities, and respect the rights of them and other citizens. A good citizen obeys laws. They respect laws that authorities pass. They obey the laws that are necessary to keep their community and country safe. A good citizen has responsibilities. They pay taxes, register to vote, and get an education. A good citizen respects the rights of them and other citizens. They respect freedom of speech or religion. The right to vote or right to assemble. They respect the right to equal protection under the law. A good citizen would help the economy and environment to make their country better.

Government is very important because without it there would be no order, no ruler, and no protection or rights. Order is very important to keep a country running. If there are no laws, you could do anything you want and have anybody do anything against you. Laws are important to control the country. They help the way we live and protect us. From those who break them. For example the U.S. is a very civilized country. They have a rule of law which states that everybody has to follow the law even the rulers. If there is no government, there is no ruler. The ruler makes decisions that makes living better for citizens. There are big responsibilities that need a ruler. A decision for war is a very serious and hard decision. For example Somalia in some parts is in anarchy. They have no ruler to control the people. There are no rights without a ruler. A leader is needed to rule the country to make decisions and to protect the country. From these examples it is clear that government is a necessity for a country and its citizens.

Many forces work for and against supranational cooperation such as centripetal and centrifugal forces.Centripetal and Centrifugal are both parts of economic structure. Trade blocs and tariffs increase unity by stopping taxes on traveling items over borders with no barriers and joining a common market so that citizens have bigger varieties. But other things that break apart this unity is how money should be spent. The western side of Europe is very wealthy opposing the eastern side which is more poor. The EU is forcing the western citizens to pay taxes that are used on the eastern side to build places to work and live. These rich people are afraid of losing jobs to these poorer people. Political cooperations in the EU have both centripetal and centrifugal forces. A centripetal force is that the EU government focuses on environmental issues and transportation. They also try to make a citizen of any country is a citizen of all of Europe. This works because every EU member can live anywhere in the EU and participate in the EU representatives there. There are also centrifugal forces pulling apart their political cooperation. When a country joins the EU is has to give up some power like making independent decisions. Another one is that the EU is growing by members. It keeps gaining more and more members. This is a problem because there are many cultural which makes many points of view. This is very hard to cooperate. There are many forces that attract and pull on the cultural cooperation in the EU. a force that attracts is that the EU promotes a European culture. They try and make people think that everyone in Europe has the same culture of celebrating EU day, singing the EU anthem in front of the EU flag. The EU has a few cities host a big concert each year and shows the culture of that city. The EU has done a great job of making everybody feel like they are united except for a few centrifugal forces. Many languages are still spoken in Europe and it's hard to communicate. Every thing on the news has to be translated over 20 different languages. Another pulling force is that there is rivalry between countries. Some countries still have tensions with other countries. In conclusion over Economic, Political, and Cultural cooperations the EU has both centripetal and centrifugal forces but still has very good unity.

The Sahel would be easier to live in. The Sahel has more water and is more moist. The Sahel gets more rain water per year. The Sahara’s rainfall is unpredictable so it is hard to know when it is going to rain. In the Sahara there are ergs refs and hammadas which make it harder to live. The Sahel has better soil for growing crops. To live in tough places you need rich soil to grow crops. The Sahel has richer soil than the Sahara. You can not grow crops in the rocky sand of the Sahara. Yet the Sahara has oases with date palms, baobab, and acacia trees, there is not that much of it. According to these facts, the Sahel is easier to live in with more water, and suitable soil for growing crops.

Having a valuable resource can make a country very wealthy. The UAE has a lot of oil that has affected their country. For example, Dubai is a city that has grown very rapidly in the past 50 years because of oil. Dubai is one of the most modern cities in the world. Dubai used to be a small desert town/port. Because of oil the city has changed. Crude oil has been found in oil reserves under impermeable rock (also known as cap rock) giving more oil to this region. The people living in these countries have changed. There is a great number of wealthy people because of the oil. Kuwait is a very rich country yet it is very small. Oil reserves are not spread out evenly. For example Kuwait is 1/125 the size of Saudi Arabia when it produces ⅖ the amount of oil Saudi Arabia has. Kuwait has the highest HDI (human development index) because of the oil it has. Kuwait also has one of the highest GDP per capita in the southwest and Central Asia region. Oil is a nonrenewable resource that makes a country wealthy. Soon oil is going to run out so the members of the OPEC group are trying to control that. They try to keep oil prices steady at the same price.The oil has made people living in Kuwait more wealthy raising Their HDI rank. Overall, a valuable resource can make a country wealthy from money and development, to oil and HDI rankings. These resources are a very important part to these countries.
