loved this series - a must see and must listen.

Jacqueline Landry's curator insight, December 15, 2013 7:34 AM

Shipping containers has helped mordern globalization in many ways. The amount of trade we do with other countries allows for a cheaper process. The amount of items we can trade now because of containerization is way more than we did with trucks. 

megan b clement's comment, December 15, 2013 9:16 PM
Containers have become such an essential part of our economy and shipping all together. SHipping in containers and on ships is not only cost effective but they can use machines to load them onto the decks of the ships. You can fit an obscene amount of product in the containers as well. The containers are also completely private you cannot see into the container so people are less likely to steal if they are unable to know what is inside.

Nancy Jones's curator insight, July 25, 1:09 PM

this is great food for thought. 'Great" as a response almost says nothing when specifics or thoughts about why are so much better. It is similar to students saying they will try to improve by "Working harder' or 'studying." unless they can clarify specifically what that means to them, the improvement and deep thinking about it will never occur.

The word that fits with great is amazing. I read some blogs where those two words are the only way of qualifying a noun.
