Questions related to Globalization
C. Møller was wrong in his famost paper "On homogeneous gravitational fields in the general theory of relativity and the clock paradox" . see pdf.
- C. Møller wroted: The equations (14) thus reduce to the single equation (16) with the general solution
- (I) D = a(1+gx)2
- However (16) is not a global solution of the equation:
- (II) G22=G33=[D1/2 ]''/D1/2=0
- Inserting Moller's solution (I) into Eq.(II) on Moller horizon x=-1/g, one obtains 0/0 ,i.e., uncertainty
- but not 0!!!
- Under this Møller mistake, Unruch calculation obviously breaks down.
What kind of scientific research dominate in the field of Analysis of the effectiveness of stock exchange markets?
Please, provide your suggestions for a question, problem or research thesis in the issues: Analysis of the effectiveness of stock exchange markets.
I invite you to the discussion
Thank you very much
Moreover, only by considering re-radiation effects of built-up area would be good enough?
What kind of scientific research dominate in the field of global financial crisis?
In my opinion, globalization is leading to the Integration of Business Cycles.
In this way, globalization may deepen economic crises, including the global financial and debt crisis. An example was the global financial crisis, which appeared in mid-September 2008.
At that time bankruptcy was announced by one of the largest investment banks in the world.
As a result of unreliable credit risk management procedures, billions of USD of financial losses have been generated.
It turned out that the unwritten rule no longer works, that "big can not fall". However, it is the emergence of ever larger international corporations and financial institutions that is one of the main determinants of the processes of economic globalization that have been progressing in recent years these processes continue.
(The continuation of these considerations can be found in the comments below).
Do you agree with my opinion?
I conduct research in key aspects of this issue. The results of these tests are described in the following publications:
I invite you to discussion and cooperation.
Dear RG members,
I am working on the potentials of "Glocalization" (i.e., the combination of globalization and localization) to support the sustainable development agenda and achieving sustainable development goals (SDGs).
In your opinion, how glocalization can affect the SDGs? Which SDGs?
I would be pleased to receive your comments, suggestions, or any suitable reference in this regard.
It was observed globally that by putting mask on face reduced the transmission of coronavirus which is already stated in Islam. Moreover, by praying 5 times a days is essential in Islam in which wazu (gargling mouth and rinsing nose) which are two steps out of five steps are used to prevent the infection....
Currently, it is difficult to define this type of analytic problem. The key issue is forecasting future global problems. It is necessary to collect additional analytical data over the next years and perhaps in about 100 years in huge Big Data database systems supported by another generation of artificial intelligence, it will be possible to forecast what can happen to the planet Earth in the next 1000 years.
In view of the above, the current question is: Will I be able to precisely forecast in the 21st century what will be the future of planet Earth in the next 1000 years?
Please, answer, comments. I invite you to the discussion.
Big tech is constrained by the political environment in which they operate, locally and globally.
If the world is divided between democracy and non-democracy given current capitalism dynamics, we should expect big tech to face fewer constraints; and therefore enjoy more business stability under democracy than under a non-democracy, and this should expected to affect future globalization trends. Which raises the question, Democratic capitalism vrs non-democratic capitalism: Is this the end of true globalization?
I think, perhaps yes and perhaps no. What do you think?
Are we finally moving to a rebranded gold standard with crypto currency? Read this article to consider the model for this discussion.
Does economic globalization have a significant impact on the development of international financial systems and on the operation of supranational capital markets?
Is the globalization of information related to the growing share of the Internet in the global dissemination of information on the situation on financial markets also related to economic globalization?
What is your opinion on this issue?
Thank you very much
Dear Friends and Colleagues of RG

Hi, I want to perform an a priori power analysis to determine the sample size for my study. I have one between subject variable with two levels (I assume number of groups = 2), three dependent variables (I assume response variables = 3). I am just interest in the main- and mediation effects. Alpha and Power are specified in the picture. Now, I was wondering about the effect-size categories (small, medium, large) because I cannot find anything about Pillai's V. What would be a medium effect size for f^2 (V)? Also, I thought that for MANOVAs, the partial eta-squared is indicating the effect size?
Poverty eradication is the primary goal of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030.
Despite the various actions carried out around the world to put an end to poverty, it remains the main challenge to achieving sustainable development at a global level.
The aim of the question is to find out whether innovative measures could be considered, taking into account the changes that have occurred in the social and economic field, following the Covid-19 pandemic?
Dear Research Gate Members,
It has been observed worldwide that the individual with weak immune system can be easily attacked by Novel Corona Virus (COVID-19). The prominent health experts are also suggesting to improve immune system against Novel Corona Virus (COVID-19).
Please, share your expert suggestions on the following question.
How can we strengthen our immune system to fight against Novel Corona Virus (COVID-19) spread?
Thanks & Regards
Let suppose, if COVID's second wave will hit then what will be the consequnces in terms of global economy? what will be the standing of real state sector and level of unemployment and inflation in future?

Today, racism continues to be one of the main discrimination problems in our society. On multitudes of occasions, we are present in situations where people are treated with inferiority and where they are judged with a wide variety of prejudices. This problem is usually seen in education, health, housing, politics, employment and in everyday life itself, both publicly and privately. Racism and racial discrimination is caused by fear, hatred, ignorance, ideology, by socio-economic circumstances, among others. That is why, today, various measures and struggles are carried out to become aware of the existing global problems. The UN is one of the main organizations that emphasizes this problem, due to the great lack of tolerance present in today's world, its main objective being to end racism, ethnic discrimination and xenophobia and trying to prevail above all the principle equality of all human beings. But do you think that one day the multitude of struggles and measures will bear fruit? What is your opinion?
In a liberal democracy, there is a free market, and in a free market big tech has the freedom it needs to maximize profits even when their actions are not socially and/or environmentally friendly. Big tech can spread easier around the world in countries under liberal democratic structures as the risk of expanding and operating freely there is technically small, rarely futile, than in places where there are non-liberal democracies where the risk of operating freely is very high, even futile.
Usually democracies have been defended by ordinary citizens during elections, not by big tech, but since 2016 and more after the covid19 pandemic big tech has taken a bigger role as it has been expected by their costumer to do so to promote and protect democratic rights using their economic muscle, specially the right to vote/participate, as the case of the USA shows.
Now it seems to be that big tech has realized that profits are more secure the better democracy works, and profits are more at risk when democracy is at risk or when there is no democracy or when democracy ends. They seem to know now that the stability of freedom of operation and expansion is directly related to the freedom that comes from operating under a true democracy.
In other words, current dynamics seem to show that true democracy to succeed needs the support of big tech and big tech to continue to succeed freely needs the support of liberal democracy.
If acting in a coordinated way, big tech can have a huge impact on the political systems inside which they work, be it democratic spaces or non-democratic spaces, which raises the current question, true democracy and big tech, do they need each other now more than ever to succeed locally and globally?.
I think yes, what do you think?
is there a coincidence that the global fires of siberia have covered the entire northern hemisphere with smoke .... global fires in australia - the southern hemisphere. - and it is in this year that a global outbreak of lung infections occurs?
I suggest the same way for other respiratory infections and COVID-19 too ...

Global temperature has been increasing , and many people consider it as a major threat to life on the Earth. This has long been described as 'global warming'. Arguments are emerging to call 'global heating'. Which one is technically correct to describe the rising in temperatures due to climate change? Global warming or global heating?
i am a young journalist, currently studying at Universidad Carlos 3 de Madrid. I have already started to view different papers on this, but in order to get a better overview on the topic of the influence of Covid-19 on the economical situation of the world, I am searching for some short personal statements of researchers.
If you have been or are currently resarching in this field, it would be a great help if you could shortly answer the following questions:
1) Which countries have or can benefit economically from the Corona crisis?
2) Which countries have had the biggest negative economical effects because of the Corona crisis?
3) How will the Corona crisis effect the global economical situation in a long term?
Thank you very much. Your help is greatly appreciated.
Could you please explain it in simple words in terms of trade competitiveness pressure, multinationalization of production and integration of financial markets. Also, exchange rates of state's currency.
I am planning to update International Business course which will incorporate contemporary topics like
> Business strategy which incorporates Climate Change/ Green Economy,
> Digitalisation of economy,
> Raise of Automation and its impact on HRM, global production, marketing and supply chain management,
>Modern challenges of Free market economy & market integration. Some of these challenges include, but not limited to the Global Pandemic, raise of the populist movement
> US-China trade tensions and strategic challenges of international business
I find most of the textbooks of international business cover traditional topics. On top of it in the last 3-5 yrs dynamics of international business is changing rapidly.
Your recommendations/suggestions are highly welcome. Thanks
I am seeking the best current methods and datasets (highest possible resolution) for defining and assessing global land degradation - ideally with a time series. I know there are different ways of exploring this e.g. biomass, productivity, land use/cover etc., but I would appreciate any thoughts on current modelling, datasets/resources and novel approaches.
I am also interested in the best methods for quantitatively mapping/modelling land restoration (biophysical) on a global scale, and if possible, historic land reconstruction.
It is claimed global warming is a real phenomenon indicating the rise in Global atmospheric temperature. As earth surface and atmosphere are inter related does the rise in temperature in the atmosphere has influence on soil temperature. If so up to what depth.
Given the Meijer paper "A New Premise for Quantum Physics, Consciousness and Fabric of Reality," I am developing an OpEMCSS systems science simulation model. The system is a network of concurrent processes that synchronize after each "blink" to create simultaneity and entanglement throughout the Information and Material universe. The prior "blink" each process determines the current local quantum state. Next, the non local rules defining implicate order are applied to determine the best fitting future quantum state. These rules are global to the entire system (the laws of physics are the same everywhere). The subsequent "blink" occurs after all concurrent processes are synchronized to create space time. The model begins at the "big bang" where all is in chaos. We can assume a goal is minimize entropy. Therefore, many quantum states must be eliminated. What is the criteria to select good/bad states. Is entropy to be minimized globally rather than for local processes? Where basic rules at the beginning to guide rule learning? Further, stimulus/response rules can be organized into a rule network using what I call concept rules. Concept rules form a hierarchy that greatly speeds up decision making, looking like a neural network or brain.
Global supply and demand chain of finance and capital got severely disrupted due to the widespread attack of novel corona virus. can we consider that the global economy is heading towards a 'liquidity trap' situation? During this lockdown situation of almost all the countries of the world, would the global services and finance trade will fill the vacuum of world merchandise trade?
Could the "incoming solar radiation" values be negative?
What is the difference between "global solar radiation" and "incoming solar radiation"?
Which one might be measured negative values?
I am looking for papers/books/studies related to changes in public policy, including theoretical papers, and on the translation/implementation of global policy onto the national level. Any suggestions?
The present global pandemic has changed the working pattern/platform. Therefore, one must have the required skill set to get absorbed in the changed pattern.
Dear colleagues, your word of wisdom will help in understanding various skills requirement.
In many countries formal rules have been adopted or guidelines have been included in key national legal regulations according to which public debt in the amount of 50%. Gross Domestic Product is interpreted as not generating high risk of domestic debt.
However, in some countries, the public debt in relation to Gross Domestic Product for many years has been at a level well above 100%.
Among these countries are developing countries but also large, rich developed countries.
On the other hand, if such countries are increasingly global, systemic credit risk may grow and if another global financial crisis similar to the one in 2008 could emerge in the future, it could turn into a serious global debt crisis.
In view of the above, let me ask you: Do you think that public debt is 50% to the Gross Domestic Product generates high or low risk of indebtedness of the country?
Please, answer, comments. I invite you to the discussion.
Hi, just wondering if anyone can please tell me how you calculate the PSDI and PST global indices of distress (from the Symptom Checklist-90-Revised by Leonard Derogatis, 1994) in SPSS?
Present global pandemic will, definitely, have an impact on affective domain (social, emotional & feelings) of the people, which may change the state social fabric. Your views please.
Several environmental experts have warned about the global warming and its effects on different ecosystems. It may also cause large scale melting of continental and alpine glaciers. If this occurs, which changes can happen in the world and on what scale? Would these changes threaten global life?
So I am trying to solve a stiff problem using Global ODEs and DAEs. The problem has 32 differential equations and I have inserted all the initial values correctly, however, I keep getting this error.
- Feature: Time-Dependent Solver 1 (sol1/t1) Failed to find consistent initial values. Attempt to evaluate real logarithm of negative number. Last time step is not converged.
The same problem I solved using MATLAB ODE15s solver and with the same set of initial conditions. May I know why can't I solve it using COMSOL.
Thank you very much in advance!
Why is there no global interest in using alternatives to rebar?

I am a student working on a long essay with my topic as "Globalization; an additional problem or a solution to the problems of the global South countries". In this paper, I seek to discuss the various dimensions of Globalization, as well as it's laws to conclude on whether it serves as a solution or an additional problem to the several problems of Global South countries. I therefore hope to be receive any assistance in the form of ideas, books and documents for this work.
COVID-19 exposed many divisions among countries and prevented the formation of a united front to combat this pandemic. Even the very closely networked blocs such as ASEAN and EU failed to coordinate their efforts to combat COVID-19 because of national interest. Undermining the world organizations such as WHO, ICOJ, and the United nation various agencies are not painting a very good picture of what to come in the future. Can globalization survive?
See the description in the attached file. What is the procedure for determining the best Lyapunov function to determine Global stability of Endemic equilibrium point?
The current global pandemic, the climate crisis, the destruction of the oceans (with plastics, etc), and massive numbers of refugees are part of a set of serious global problems.
It is clear that most states' focus on nationalism and a general lack of support or trust in the UN is rendering global efforts to confront these problems as lacking. What can educators do about this impending danger?
In Canada and the US, social studies education includes a multicultural perspective based on national pride. the time has come to teach less from a nationalistic view and one looking at the world from a type of cosmopolitanism. Conservatives will likely react negatively to such a suggestion, but the situation warrants support for global citizenship.
In the recent years, the authoritarian governments have increasingly rose to power in major economies around the world. The adoption of policies favouring domestic employment as well as local producers casts doubts on the future of globalization. In this regard post your opinion.

I'm looking for gridded time-series of soil temperature to validate regional hydrological modelling of mine in Alberta. All I was able to find was station data which is not suitable because the stations are very sparse. I appreciate if you let me know about any possible sources for soil temperature data which is gridded (spatial) data.
Can the potential of plasma LIPIDMICS improve the diagnosis and understanding of metabolic changes in various neurodegenerative diseases (Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, Mutiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease etc) ?
RELEVANCE TO NUTRITIONAL TREATMENT ON BRAIN SENESCENCE, AGEING SCIENCE AND GLOBAL NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASE
We have performed one of the most comprehensive lipidomic analysis of AD to date by utilising two large, independent clinical studies in AD. We have provided a holistic picture of lipid dysregulation associated with both prevalent and incident AD. Our plasma lipid dataset expands the scientific literature by providing greater resolution and allowing fine-granular analysis of the lipidome. Here we have highlighted specific changes to the ether lipid pathway, where plasmalogens are not the only drivers of ether lipid associations. Class-wide and species-specific changes highlight the necessity of a broad and detailed assay to capture these minute differences in the lipidome. We have demonstrated the potential of plasma lipids as the markers to improve assessment of prevalent and incident AD, highlighting the importance of these small molecules in both disease prognostics and understanding the metabolic changes occurring with the disease.

Informal integration emerges on the crossroad of global production chains and international trade system's paths and goes in line with countries' cooperation establishing the most favorable conditions for cross-border trade flows between neighbouring partners. From the other side, new reference points have appeared in the national economies – the roving internationalized production cores which increasingly challenge future specialization and commodity circulation in mutual trade. New internationalized production cores are maturing in the depth of national economies and hence – within regional multilateral agreements –become integrated into global value chains capturing trans-border and supra-national internationalization levels. The states within the economic and political world space, establishing regional integration associations, thus form the necessary and obligatory conditions for the modern reproduction process. So the last is shaping by the integrated continuity of successive stages of the final product creating within the internationalized reproduction process.
The question remains: is this GPNs what lies behind formal integration presented by FTAs and CUs?
The health crisis that the world is going through these days affected jobs and businesses, closed companies and airports, and stopped most aspects of life in most countries of the world, God willing, this crisis will be evacuated, but how will the global economy, stagnation or inflation, or will we turn into an economic shock ??
What are the advantages of conducting research in international research teams?
Please, answer, comments.

I am working with colleagues on expanding a project focused on global citizenship education in the Global South. Question is: how educators at universities in the Global South prepare their students to be 'global citizens’? We value a vast range of perspectives. Your opinion matters.
In the context of the COVID-19 infodemic, the global profusion of monikers and hashtags for "UK coronavirus variant" have found their way into daily communication and contributed to a backlash against UK people. How to name it is a catch-22 for scientists.
In recent years, one of the priorities of American foreign policy has been the competition with China for global leadership and the political construction of a new geopolitical region in the Pacific and Indian Ocean basins. Will the situation change with a Democratic president in the United States?
Environmental pollutants and hazardous are major issues through which the modern world is suffering. Among all the environmental pollutants and hazardous materials how much contribution is from chemists (out of 100%) lets put rough estimate.
Many bad and good things happened for global community in 2020. However, the present question is about one top most worst thing and one top most good thing that happened in the world in 2020 and affected almost the entire global community.
Should universities in the Global South focus more on fostering students’ job-specific skills or instead focus more on “values and knowledge” development? What are the consequences?
Five environmental variables were used as predictors in MaxEnt: sst, sss, thermocline depth, stratification index, and distance to shelf edge. Where we can download these from satellite data freely?

Global citizenship education is certainly a debated notion yet increasingly popular among educational institutions in the Global South. If you are an educator located in the Global South (e.g., South Africa, Brazil, Mexico, Ghana, India, China, Malaysia, Pakistan, Yemen, Iraq), what are the basic/key characteristics of a global citizenship education in your opinion?
In the new era of Globalised Education, when everyone wants to be a part of the Global Ranking mechanism and race, there are some civic and social roles of institutions to be taken up for safe-guarding local ecology, culture, and heritage. What are the ways to get this pro-local approach for the academic institutions?
Many steps can be taken to make the year 2021 good for humanity. For instance, if powerful and rich countries decide and spend some part of their resources for the improvement and betterment of poor and needy humans instead of spending resources on wars and destruction of humanity, the year 2021 can be made good for global community...........Many other such kind of steps can be taken to make the year 2021 good for the humans.

This agenda requires countries to start making more efforts to achieve the 17 goals that represent the duties to be implemented towards people and the planet from 2016 to 2030. However, the COVID-19 outbreak is a global challenge facing all countries and has different impacts.
This is to lanche the idea of a future international meeting yielding global educational brainstorming to set the rules for a robust calibrated universally agreed upon just world ranking system of universities from the discipline down to the specialty level.
Please mention the well known or globally recognized Scopus, scimago indexed computer science journals which accept preliminary results?
Italy has surpassed China in the number of deaths due to corona virus, despite the large difference between the population of each country, as Europe has overtaken China, especially as the latter has surpassed the health crisis caused by this global epidemic. This leads to a broad question: Why have European countries not succeeded in repeating China's experience in containing the virus?
A lot of global and local university rankings based on various factors are very frequently made available to the scientific community. what is your objective assessment about the credibility and justice of such rankings? thank you.
In the field of international business the trend has been a move towards globalisation and integration. However research has shown that lately most government policies have been of a protectionist nature. How do you view the field of IB and trade develop in the near future? Further globalisation or a move in the opposite direction?
