The economies of scale that globalization depends on, relies on logistics and transportation networks that can handle this high-volume.  In a word, the container, as mundane as it may seem, facilitated the era within which we live today.

Kaitlin Young's curator insight, November 22, 2014 1:58 PM

This video proves how a simple idea has the potential to change the world. The truck driver had the insight to notice when the current shipping system was not particularly effective and had the ingenuity to do something about it. Because of this man, containerization was allowed to change how goods could move around the world. As goods move, they also spread different cultures through food, ideas, technology, and beliefs. Without this process, globalization would not be at the level that it exists at today. . 

Alyssa Dorr's curator insight, December 7, 2014 5:26 PM

I always enjoyed TED videos. What really struck me was the opening sentence of the video, "everything is everywhere these days." This is so true in so many ways. The video uses different examples that you can find in different stores from places all over the world. How many things can you could in your bedroom that says "Made in China" or some other place other than the US? This is very common as we all know. Products and goods come from all over the world and even over seas. This is a process that we call globalization. However, the video introduces a process called containerization. This process saves an ample amount of time for the workers. The process was a success. "shrinking the world and enlarging human choice."

Michael Mazo's curator insight, December 10, 2014 7:48 PM

Globalization has connected the world in such a way that we hadn't thought possible. This idea has created rising economies all over the world and has made transport of goods and services move faster and continues to increase this rate with advances in technology. Containerization is a staple of globalization and without it, none of these products would be able to get from country to country. In essence it has developed the world of import and exports. To add to this success, globalization has also created jobs and communities which revolve heavily around the transport of goods. It saves time by using massive containers to move goods and it creates opportunities in places where it had not been possible before.

En el último siglo y medio, mientras ha ido avanzando el capitalismo global y los Estados-nación han venido cediendo parte de su soberanía en cuanto a las decisiones socioeconómicas, las empresas transnacionales han logrado ir consolidando y ampliando su creciente dominio sobre la vida en el planeta. Especialmente, en las tres últimas décadas, ya que el avance de los procesos de globalización económica y la expansión de las políticas neoliberales han servido para construir un entramado político, económico, jurídico y cultural, a escala global, del que las grandes corporaciones han resultado ser las principales beneficiarias.

La Conflictología, por Eduard Vinyamata - Oír es precioso para el que escucha (proverbio egipcio)

La Conflictología, por Eduard Vinyamata - Oír es precioso para el que escucha (proverbio egipcio) | Sin fronteras | Scoop.it

Hace pocas décadas, los planteamientos científicos, de la mano de matemáticos, biólogos y físicos, enunciaban la Teoría del Caos, una forma distinta de entender un universo, definido por el espíritu científico moderno, que se resistía a admitir las explicaciones de una ciencia omnipotente. Estas ideas enlazan con las de algunos filósofos y humanistas y, más concretamente, con los que, por aquellos años, se dedicaban a intentar comprender las causas y orígenes de los conflictos. En aquellos años nacía también, con fuerza, el interés por la ecología y por el sentido otorgado al progreso y sus consecuencias ambientales. Eran años de estupor ante la magnitud adquirida por las guerras y, en concreto, por el peligro atómico y la división política en dos grandes bloques enfrentados. También eran años de acercamiento entre las formas de entender el mundo de oriente y de occidente, de la creación de Internet y el inicio de lo que, años más tarde, recibiría el nombre de globalización.

In celebration of creolisation | Sin fronteras | Scoop.it

All English and Germanic languages began as creolised languages that continue to absorb new idioms. Globalisation is accelerating this process in new and unforeseen ways. In Africa, Afrikaans and Swahili can be considered "creoles". Swahili is the lingua franca of the Indian Ocean coastline, from Somalia to Mozambique and the Seychelles. It is a language of hybrid cultures, has a 100-year-old poetic tradition, and draws its linguistic resources from other languages.

Cartographic Anomalies: How Map Projections Have Shaped Our Perceptions of the World

Cartographic Anomalies: How Map Projections Have Shaped Our Perceptions of the World | Sin fronteras | Scoop.it

Elizabeth Borneman explores how cartography and cartographic projections help and hinder our perception of the world.

"How do you think the world (starting with our perceptions) could change if the map looked differently? What if Australia was on top and the hemispheres switched? By changing how we look at a map we truly can begin to explore and change our assumptions about the world we live in."

 

Geography doesn’t just teach us about the Earth; it provides ways for thinking about the Earth that shapes how we see the world.  Maps do the same; they represent a version of reality and that influences how we think about places.

4. Any bilingual can be a translator or an interpreter. The ability to write in English does not make a person a professional writer. The ability to speak English does not make a person a professional speaker. Likewise, the ability to write or speak two languages does not mean that a person can translate or interpret. Plenty of people who are perfectly fluent in two languages fail professional exams for translation and interpreting. Why? Being bilingual does not guarantee that a person will be able to transport meaning from one language and culture to another without inflicting harm in the process. Most translators and interpreters are highly educated, with advanced degrees and training in either translation, linguistics, or a specialty field. Also, while not mandatory, professional certifications are widely recognized and strongly encouraged. In the U.S., translators are certified by the American Translators Association, and a variety of certifications exist for interpreters.

Abdul Karmach's curator insight, January 30, 2014 8:38 AM

It's true, facts tell, but stories SELL. It's biological. The decision making part of our brain doesn't use language; it uses something else, call it emotion. After an "emotional" decision is made, we use the rational part of our brain (neocortex) to support and prove that decision.

 

Great communication, great marketing and great results come from emotional content.
