The wish to rule the world has always been a part of the human experience throughout recorded history. Broadly speaking, global governance is an international and political system of ruling at all levels or human activity. In other words, this type of governance can be associated with multilevel governance in the sense that governance does not only take place at the national and the international echelon but also at the local, regional as well as subnational levels. Globalisation is a term that has been spoken about worldwide since 1990 and it has given a rise to intense arguments about the supply of losses and gains resulting from it. From a political point of view, many authors have also tried to define the subject matter which will be discussed throughout this essay. This essay examines not only the pessimistic and optimistic sides of global governance but will also explain the concept, how it works together or in cooperation with the United Nations. Meaning, this piece of work will also explain a bit about the UN’s contribution towards global governance by giving supportive examples in order to back up the argument. It will also analyse what authors think about global governance and how they define it. It will then suggest a model for enhancing global governance within the conclusion.

As explained within the introduction, global governance could also be considered as a political interaction of transnational actors aimed at solving issues that have an effect on more than one state or area in case there is no authority of imposing compliance. Global governance makes rules intended for the worldwide scale. However, the world governance model only takes as fact the emergence and intensification of interdependence conditions between states and not a monopoly of the legal practice of force. To be more specific, it is a model of international relations that does not…...

The author wishes to acknowledge Jayne Ducker and Tony Head for their editorial and developmental contributions to this case study and teaching note. Global Limited is a small company which supplies quality inspectors to the pipeline industry. The company's clients include some of the major plcs in the UK, such as the major petroleum and gas companies. The inspectors are required by these companies to provide an independent certification that the steel used in the construction of the pipes, which channel the gas and oil, meets the required standard. Additionally, inspectors are required to provide an independent certification that the joinings (known as 'welds') made when laying the pipelines are also made in accordance with industry standards. The pipelines are either laid under the ground or on the sea bed. Some inspectors are therefore required to work in rolling mills, inspecting the quality of steel and the production of the pipes, whilst others are required to work on installation sites, checking the welds. These locations can be anywhere in the world. The company is owned and managed......

Global Domination

...Wesley Davis Whitten English 102 7 March 2012 Global Domination or Justified Accommodation From the end of World War I in 1918 to present day, the United States of America has not proceeded one decade without being involved in some sort of foreign affair. In today’s society, the thoughts of an ongoing war and the immense outreach of the United States government linger in far distance of the American public’s minds. Why is this possible? Is it because Americans do not care for foreign policy and the rest of the world or is it maybe the absence of information provided by the mainstream media? Whether the deficit of media involvement or the lack of interest of many citizens, the United States’ foreign policy is of relevant importance when handling the world and its issue’s. These issues and the toll of repairing them are strenuous on America’s economy. How can we help others when we cannot help ourselves? The United States foreign policy is outreached, overextended and needs to be revised. Since the end of the “Great War” in 1918, the United States has accumulated a great number of military bases around the globe. It seems that the U.S. military posts and maintains military presence in every country it has ever had affiliations with. This occupancy is outdated, unnecessary, and is draining billions of dollars from American taxpayers. “As of 2010, the United States government has spent $700 billion yearly for national defense” (Lutz p. 9). The United States needs to......

Global Warming

...like a natural cycle. See updates below. – Anthony ================================================================ Guest essay by Bob Tisdale The recently published climate model-based paper Recent global-warming hiatus tied to equatorial Pacific surface cooling [Paywalled] by Yu Kosaka and Shang-Ping Xie has gained a lot of attention around the blogosphere. Like Meehl et al (2012) and Meehl et al (2013), Kosaka and Xie blame the warming stoppage on the recent domination of La Niña events. The last two sentences of Kosaka and Xie (2013) read: Our results show that the current hiatus is part of natural climate variability, tied specifically to a La-Niña-like decadal cooling. Although similar decadal hiatus events may occur in the future, the multi-decadal warming trend is very likely to continue with greenhouse gas increase. Anyone with a little common sense who’s reading the abstract and the hype around the blogosphere and the Meehl et al papers will logically now be asking: if La Niña events can stop global warming, then how much do El Niño events contribute? 50%? The climate science community is actually hurting itself when they fail to answer the obvious questions. And what about the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO)? What happens to global surface temperatures when the AMO also peaks and no longer contributes to the warming? The climate science community skirts the common-sense questions, so no one takes them seriously. UPDATE Another......

...The effects of global warming on the environment and human life are numerous and varied. Scenarios studied by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) predict that global warming will continue and get worse much faster than was expected even in their last report. Research by NOAA indicate that the effects of global warming are already irreversible. The IPCC reports attribute many specific natural phenomena to human causes. The expected long range effects of recent climate change may already be observed. Rising sea levels, glacier retreat, Arctic shrinkage, and altered patterns of agriculture are cited as direct consequences of human activities. Predictions for secondary and regional effects include extreme weather events, an expansion of tropical diseases, changes in the timing of seasonal patterns in ecosystems, and drastic economic impact. Concerns have led to political activism advocating proposals to mitigate, or adapt to it. Geoengineering is a further potential response, which could potentially reverse some effects that may otherwise be irreversible. It is notable that many of the effects of global warming are non-linear in nature, with potential for dramatic positive feedback effects. This means that the climate may enter a critical state where small changes can trigger runaway or abrupt climate change. Geoengineering has been suggested as a means of interrupting or reversing these effects. A notable example of a 'runaway' effect is the release of methane...

...US History, Period 2 May 29, 2013 Due to the source of energy we rely on, humanity is making excessive amounts of greenhouse gases. Currently, fossil fuels are the primary sources of energy. These include oil, coal, and natural gas, and they account for 85 percent of the total energy sources used in the Unites States. The air pollution made by fossil fuels upsets the delicate natural balance of the Earth resulting in global warming or climate change, the disappearance of the polar ice caps, and other issues which harm the planet and us. In fact, the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is now over 25 percent more than it was 150 years ago. Fossil fuels are the main cause to global warming and should be dealt with immediately. Switching to alternative, non-detrimental, renewable sources of energy are the solutions to global warming as well as the energy demand associated with fossil fuel use. There is only so much oil under the earth’s surface available for drilling. Once it is gone, it cannot be replaced and when it accidentally leaks into the natural world, as in the case of an oil spill, it destroys marine life, animal life and plant life, and can alter fragile ecosystems. Coal is vile to our environment as well because mining coal leaves large holes in the ground and alters the look of the natural landscape. Burning of coal leads to smog and acid rain. Acid rain corrodes buildings, harms wildlife and plants, and......

Western Domination

...Western Dominance By the nineteenth century, the imperialistic western powers dominated and influenced most of the world. Europe’s power spread until much of the world was controlled and influenced by European business imperialism. The British had acquired direct control over France, India, most of Africa, much of Southeast Asia, South Asia, Malaysia, and the Pacific. They had indirect control over large parts of China, Afghanistan, Persia, Mongolia, and Latin America (Kallander 2/13). The Westward shift of power was brought about with the British domination of foreign trade, the advancement of technology and weapons, and business imperialism. The United States expanded into the Pacific, took over Hawaii and bought Louisiana from the French. The westward shift of power was essential to the rise of global empires and to the start of modernization. Less powerful countries or empires would take ideas from those which were more powerful empires to better advance their society. The expanding western dominance in the world was essential to increasing globalization. The western military dominance symbolized modernization, which was then thought of as industrialization. As western imperialism spread, modernization also spread; the rest of the world had to compete and did so by imitating western militaristic ideas. By building up their own military using western ideas, the unconquered empires could compete and fight against imperialists. The western imperialists continued to......

Managing cultural diversity need a right method mainly from top management personnel in conditions of cultural sensitivity and local focused. International expansion was a “desirable” element for senior executives of mainly large corporations, firms of every size can now no longer afford to ignore the consequences of remaining a domestic player (O’Hara). Foreign companies face many challenges in expanding their business activities globally. Cultural barriers can make unpredictable problems as companies set up offices and production around the world. Critic of the multinational corporation usually views it as an economic and often political means of foreign domination. Many organizations, global diversity and cultural differences are seen to be difficult to overcome rather than as tools to be influenced for business success. Although more than 75% major American companies focus on diversity as a strategic advantage and business leverage in the U. S. there is minimal carry over internationally (Digh, 2001). These companies find themselves in the perplexing position of attempting to “roll out” overseas those diversity initiatives that were designed for a domestic......

Complexity of Privilege and Domination

...The Complexity of Privilege and Domination Privilege always occurs at the expense of others. Allan Johnson states, “The trouble we’re in privileges some groups at the expense of others. It creates a yawning divide in levels of income, wealth, dignity, safety, health, and quality of life” (Johnson 7). Allan Johnson states this in Chapter 1 of his book Privilege, Power and Difference and it is one of the most powerful statements in the whole book. Privilege creates a great divide between people. This can have a negative lasting effect, if not under control. Society has divided people into two groups: superior and inferior. The superior groups are the ones that are privileged in society and the inferior ones are ones that are underprivileged; however, there is a certain complexity that comes with privilege. There are so many different combinations of race, gender, class, sexual orientation or disability status that can occur so finding a person who fits all of the above is difficult. Ideally, it would be a white, wealthy, heterosexual male who is not disabled. Majority of people in the world do not fit that description. It is much more likely that an individual would be privileged in one or two of those categories. The complexity of privilege lies in the fact that individuals who are seen as superior and therefore privileged are entitled to have more opportunities than those who are underprivileged and inferior; however, this is not guaranteed.

...Global Warming, aside from pollution is one of scientists biggest concerns. Global Warming is caused by the Greenhouse effect. There are 4 steps in the Greenhouse effect process. The first is, sunlight radiates from the sun, through space, to the Earth's atmosphere. The second is, sunlight enters the atmosphere and hits the Earth. Some of that sunlight turns into heat energy in the form of infrared light. Surrounding air and land, which in turn makes the heat warm, absorbs the heat. Third, the greenhouse gases trap infrared rays that is remitted into the atmosphere. Finally, the gas then absorbs the light and is remitted back to the Earth's surface and warms it even more. Another cause of Global Warming is the emissions of greenhouse gases due to the increase in technology that humans have developed. One recent study by the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) said that unless governments do something to restrict the emissions of greenhouse gases to a lower level, global temperatures could rise 1.6 to 6.3 degrees Fahrenheit by the year 2100. This would represent the fastest rate of global warming since the end of the last ice age more than 10,000 years ago. With the increased warming of the Earth it could lead to catastrophic events that could endanger living species on our planet. One event is major drought all around the world. With the warming of the planet, the water on the ground would quickly evaporate causing the rivers and lakes to quickly dry up.......

...Climate change is changing our economy, health and communities in diverse ways. Carbon dioxide and other global warming pollutants are collecting in the atmosphere like a thickening blanket, trapping the sun's heat and causing the planet to warm up. Over the past 50 years the average global temperature has increased. In addition to impacting our water resources, energy supply, transportation, agriculture, and ecosystems. also increases in the risk of illness and death related to extreme heat waves. Some diseases transmitted by food, water, and insects are likely to increase. Certain groups, including children, the elderly, and the poor, are most vulnerable to a range of climate-related health effects. Step 1:Set limits on global warming pollution The most significant step we can take to reduce carbon pollution is to set limits on the major sources such as cars and power plants. we will have cleaner air and a safer environment, which benefits our health, quality of life and economy. save tens of thousands of lives each year and hundreds of thousands hospital visits. Step 2:Invest in green jobs and clean energy Investing in clean energy industries, such as wind and solar, as well as energy efficiency programs. Manufacturing solar panels. Studies show that investing in clean energy technologies would produce more jobs than similar investments in oil and gas. Investments in clean energy will also help end oil addiction.

Domination and Subordination of Women

...After reading both Toward The Stony Mountains and Jean Baker Miller’s Domination and Subordination and examined John Gast’s painting American Progress; there are many connections that arise between the three pieces that must not be overlooked and represent important frames that overlap each other in the most interesting ways. Starting with Miller’s Domination and Subordination, it deals with a theoretical framework of inequality relationships, their different types, and the characteristics of the parties involved in said relationships. The author talks about inequality regarding two crucial concepts: power and status; and identifies the two participants in this type of relationships which are the “superior” party and the “lesser” party. As the author states in page 110, the superior party is supposed to “help the lesser party to fill up to full parity, to end the relationship of inequality”. Also, in all these types of relationships, disparity should be a temporary passage, ending with the relationship and moving to the next level, whether be a friendship, partnership or simply nothing. Building on this same instance, Miller goes as far as to analyzing the behavior of the two parties, who ultimately will always depend in the inequality at stake, since the dominant party will never want to leave room for the inferior party to dissent from their ideas and will go as far as taking the lesser party’s freedom. Finally, one of the most important points the author makes deals with...
