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 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?

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....
Relevant answer
Answer
I think that perhaps I have not understood the question well and, by virtue of this, it seems to want to affirm, and not so much to ask, that there is an impact or relationship (it is supposed to be preventive or protective), but the question itself does not clarify towards what (in fact, it says verbatim: Impact of the veil (hijab) and Nimaz (five sentences in Islam)?), it must be SUPPOSED to be regarding COVID-19; is that so ?.
Well, if the meaning of the question is such, which I repeat, it is rather a statement or assertion, we would have to differentiate two aspects:
1st: The hijab, in and of itself, little or nothing prevents COVID-19 as it does not cover either the mouth or the nose, just as neither the turban, nor the scarf, nor the tarbush or fez do of men and since its use is a custom (according to some) or a religious precept (according to others), it does not seem reasonable, if it is a religious precept, that God the Merciful would have wanted to protect one sex from COVID (on the assumption that the hijab would protect) and not the other ... or vice versa.
In the same way, wazu or wudu or ablution does not prevent it either, no matter how much it is a purification rite (but more of the soul than of the body, although also of the latter) and much less if such wudu is "dry" and "minor. "Without going into that Sunnis and Shiites, respecting both, interpret and do it differently.
2nd: I have said the above as a Healthcare Professional that I am; As a believer, in my case Christian, I have been brought up with the utmost affection and respect for Islam, which I know deeply since my mother died when I was a child and I was raised by a Muslim nanny, may God have in his glory that I loved like a mother, when I was with her and out of respect and affection for her, if it coincided with Ramadan I would fulfill it and I was "Ramadaní" too, nor would I eat pork at home with her, etc. For all this, as a convinced and respectful believer, I believe that it is good and healthy for each one, if he is a believer, to adequately comply with the precepts of his Religion, but not to mix one thing with another; In our case, this means that it seems correct to use the hijab as a personal decision, but not as an obligation (many scholars say that its use is not a precept, although it is not the issue now) and, of course, the Nimaz with its corresponding Wazu or Wudu; but from there to say that this is preventive of COVID-19, it seems to me, with all due respect, a recklessness and, even, "tempt God" and not love your neighbor, due to the risk of contagion, to ALWAYS leave in His Hands MERCIFUL something that is OUR RESPONSIBILITY: "Pray as if everything depended on God but Work as if everything depended on you" or, as the Roman Law said: "the mule dies for its owner, then it is he who must take care of it". Thank you.

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.
Relevant answer
Answer
Forecasting climatic, geological, natural and other processes that may occur in the next several dozen years is burdened with a very large scope of research error. Despite the progress made in the field of predictive analytics, the impact of the development of civilization on the climate and the biosphere of the planet Earth is still large and growing. Therefore, forecasting the development of climatic, geological and natural processes that may appear in the next several hundred years may border on the proverbial "fortune-telling on tea grounds".

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?

Financial flows would tend to suggest that the degree of internationalization of financial markets has increased over recent years to reach levels broadly comparable to those seen in the period of marked financial market integration which preceded World War I. As mentioned at the outset, however, quantities alone cannot be a good indicator of globalization because the law of one price may still not apply when cross-border financial flows become more widespread.

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?
Best!
Relevant answer
Answer
Assuming that the result from the previous study represents the smallest, non-ignorable effect you'd like your study to be capable of detecting, then:
1. convert the target ES, expressed as partial eta^2, to f^2 (use the simple formula in the March 9 post, above).
2. take the square root of f^2 to yield the corresponding value of ES as Cohen's f.
Starting with eta^2 of .06 yields f of about 0.253.
Good luck with your work.

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.

Question
12 answers
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?

A society in which we live it is also post-industrial in which agriculture and industry are losing the role they once had. In fact, not correct to say that these two sectors go out, but the service sector has already gained importance in which it opens a vast number of jobs, while in the previous two we have a considerable reduction of the same. Economic globalization enabled the transfer of production units from developed countries to underdeveloped countries where employees do the same job as their colleagues for 8 to 10 times fewer wages.

Hi Jake,
It is a daunting task and not very easy to answer. We have been struggling with it for a while now. From our experiences it comes back to two basic challenges. The first one is how you define land degradation (see our recent publication below), but of course also to obtain the proper datasets. In our research we are focusing on creating a time series of a range of soil properties. We are currently aiming to at a time series of soil conditions for the UN statistics division in the context of their national accounting.

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.

Answer
Dear Shaijumon C S,
When the SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) coronavirus pandemic appeared in March 2020, the situation on the financial markets changed significantly, there was a panic sale of shares on stock exchanges, and investment risk increased significantly. In terms of international financial markets, as in previous economic and financial crises, speculative capital was withdrawn from the emerging markets of smaller economies. Banks and investment funds operating internationally were changing the structure of their investment portfolios in foreign financial markets. In addition, international delivery logistics has changed. The changes mainly concerned shortening international supply logistics chains and increasing the scale of domestic production of components and semi-finished products necessary for the implementation of the production processes of final products. In this way, the scale of international capital flows has decreased.

That diagram seems to be showing net incoming radiation, not incoming solar radiation which is always positive or zero. The negative values occur during the winter when the only radiation is outgoing thermal IR radiation from the snow and ice.
Note incoming solar radiation, ISR, is incoming shortwave radiation, also ISR. I suggest that the diagram is showing net radiation which is !SR - OLR (outgoing longwave radiation.

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.

Before COVID-19 crisis 50 % of debt to Gross Domestic Product was a high public debt for any country, but nowadays, during coronavirus crisis, and I think, for some time after it, 50 % of country's debt is rather low.

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.
Relevant answer
Answer
Paul,
I think the timing for asking this question couldn't be any better. I did a quick search on the Web of Science and it looks like research in this field has been rather limited. The search resulted in 67 scholarly works related to teaching global citizenship, though the settings in which the studies were carried out vary from case to case.
I thought these three works might provide some answers to your question:
1. Scaffolding Critical Questions: Learning to Read the World in a Middle School Civics Class in Mexico ( This article shares the case of a student-driven investigation into social issues from an eighth-grade civics class at an American school in Mexico. Through vignettes about the teaching and learning process, the author argues that a focus on students' inquiry into their social contexts rather than on specific social justice content is a key practice when teaching for critical democratic literacy, especially when teachers and students come from different social contexts. This article offers a concrete example of how foregrounding students' critical questions can help move students toward social justice-oriented citizenship. )
2. Ecopedagogy as an element of citizenship education: The dialectic of global/local spheres of citizenship and critical environmental pedagogies (This article examines how conflicting processes of globalisation both help and hinder in achieving such a paradigm shift by decentring traditional nation-state citizenship. Results from the second study indicate how critical teaching within and between different spheres of citizenship (e.g. local, national, global, and planetary citizenship) is essential for ecopedagogy (and the ecopedagogical element). )
3. A QUESTION OF HOW A Report on Teachers' Instructional Practices When Educating for Global Citizenship in Canada ( This chapter reports how educating for global citizenship is being practiced by teachers in the K-12 education landscape in three metropolitan regions of Canada. First, we briefly review the history of global citizenship education in Canada to contextualize the foundation upon which educating for global citizenship is being understood and practiced by teachers. Next, we introduce a series of conceptual frameworks that synthesize common priorities linked to educating for global citizenship in educational policy, practice, and research communities. Lastly, we report findings from a qualitative research study that we conducted between 2008 and 2011 on educating for global citizenship from the perspectives of Canadian public school teachers from, three metropolitan regions. This study investigated teachers' learning goals, instructional practices, and orientations when educating for global citizenship and how each contributes to the other. )
I hope this helps.

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?
Relevant answer
Answer
The issue of interdependence of formal and informal integration and it’s grassroots correlates with the two type of borders coexisting in the global economy: administrative (state) and economic ones. Just one and the same global geoeconomic space evolves the set of interconnected national economies which are marked by clear political boundaries and a lot of trans-border (supra-national) internationalized production cores enclosed in fuzzy economic boundaries so that these cores can change (and do so) their scale and configuration in global space permanently. The central core may be formed by a global firm’s key economic activities and upper upstream functions and hence all other functions, different value chains’ links, affiliates and local value-generating effects depicture the peripheral areas within the economic boundaries of these cores.
No less important is the question of how the cohesion between formal and informal integration is achieved? We consider this cohesion to become a multi-dimensional process embracing (1) geographic dimension – that means common / conjugate border, industrial clusters that shape a single delineated business territory; (2) organizational dimension - externalization of individual production processes of companies, segmenting entire GVCs into separate units linked with each other by production cooperation, establishing of affiliates and subcontracting - thus crossing the administrative borders of the countries; (3) value-generating dimension – the enlarging intermediates’ exports within FTA economic space.
