    • 1. Globalization 4th Quarter Benchmark Chris Loftus
    • 2. Migration and Colonization This picture kind of emulates the amount of diversity and immigration that has come to America since the early 1900s but has still produced hundreds of new immigrants. This girl, Gracie Wagenveld, who was adopted into this country 15 years ago, was a product of immigration due to an increase need for rights and liberties that America can supply.   In the 21st century, we can come to a place in our nations history where immigration has come to another high compared to the beginning of the 20th. According to this article (http:// www.urban.org/publications/900417.html) in 2000 a total of somewhere between eleven and fourteen million immigrants have come to America. Some of these have been legal but a majority of been illegal.   "U.S. Immigration at the Beginning of the 21st Century: Testimony before the Subcommittee on Immigration and Claims Hearing on "The U.S. Population and Immigration" Committee on the Judiciary U.S. House of Representatives." The Urban Institute | Research of Record. Web. 09 May 2010. <http:// www.urban.org/publications/900417.html>.
    • 3. Politics/ International Law and Organizations In the picture you are brought to the family court building located at 34 South 11th Street. In this building a majority of the jurisdiction only is available for the families in the city of Philadelphia, but there is one aspect that differs into a global courthouse. They help to adopt children from all over the world that want to come here.   In recent years along with the rise in immigration statures, adoption from around from around the world to the US has raised as well. According to this article (http://www.prb.org/Articles/2003/ InternationalAdoptionRateinUSDoubledinthe1990s.as px), the rate of adoption to the US in 2001 was about 20,000 adoptions where as in 1989 it was around 7,000 adoptions.   "International Adoption Rate in U.S. Doubled in the 1990s - Population Reference Bureau." Home - Population Reference Bureau. Web. 09 May 2010. <http://www.prb.org/Articles/2003/ InternationalAdoptionRateinUSDoubledinthe1990s.as px>.
    • 4. Environment and Energy The global stretch to try and save our environment can be seen here at our home in Philadelphia. The PECO building has been named one of the greenest buildings in all of Philadelphia. They installed a total of 45,000 feet of vegetation across it. It also includes 3,000 feet of pavers and 470 feet lineal feet of railing that will help the roof keep the peak of 60-80 degrees. It reflects the approaches that the rest of the world is attempting to have against the need for electricity and produce more oxygen into our air.   Globally, we have recognized that global warming is a problem and we are trying to stop it in any way we can. In this article, (http:// www.pbs.org/newshour/extra/features/july-dec06/kyoto_11-15.html) you can see how through things like the Kyoto Protocol the nations are trying to come together and reduce the emissions so our temperatures don’t rise too much. The United States is one of the main countries responsible for the protocol as well as enforcing it so you can see how it is affecting even our city.   "NewsHour Extra: World Leaders Reconvene to Discuss Global Warming Goals-- November 15, 2006." PBS. Web. 09 May 2010. <http://www.pbs.org/newshour/extra/features/july-dec06/kyoto_11-15.html>.  
    • 5. Science and Technology The city of Philadelphia is one of the founding members of this country. Everything was started here including the first pieces of innovation such as electricity concentration as well as things like the fire union and other things. It is no shock that we have one of the main pieces of science and technology founded here, The Franklin Institute.You can see in the picture the sign for the Cleopatra exhibit that is coming from across the globe to this museum in which the public will be able to see for a small fee.   This museum is the quid essential essence of science throughout the world. They exemplify the major artifacts and explore the human body through things like body worlds. People from around the globe come here to see the exhibits and to innovate the way we think. Recently the Franklin Institute has opened exhibits (http:// www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/the-franklin-institute-launches-two-new- exhibits--changing-earth-and-electricity-saturday-march-27-89060417.html) that have to do with the global impact that our emissions are having. This global coming together of information represents globalization well.   "The Franklin Institute Launches Two New Exhibits: Changing Earth and Electricity Saturday, March 27 -- PHILADELPHIA, March 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/." PR Newswire: Press Release Distribution, Targeting, Monitoring and Marketing. Web. 09 May 2010. <http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/the-franklin-institute-launches- two-new-exhibits--changing-earth-and-electricity-saturday-march-27-89060417.html>.
    • 6. Economy Along with the history that goes along with this city, we have one of the major Mints in the entire country. This building is home to millions of dollars that helps to keep our economy moving. The problem is that, the people whom consume the money are the people that control how our economy moves not the place that the money comes out of.   We have been the center of commerce ever since we were the capitol of the United States back in 1792 and the Coinage Act was put into place making it mandatory that we had a Mint. Our economy and the things that we do with this money affects the rest of the world dramatically.  We can tell by the most recent Economy drop how the rest of the world was affected (http://www.voxeu.org/index.php?q=node/3421) that we have invested ourselves pretty deeply into the rest of the world. Not only that though, but this Mint has global effects solely for the use of the dollar. Money is shipped all over the world for people trying to convert dollars or even just using them because the Dollar is so strong. Our globalized economy and the money we have / use effects people everywhere.   "A Tale of Two Depressions: What Do the New Data Tell Us?

    • 7. Trade You see in the picture here, as has been probably seen in several of the other projects, a tee shirt tag claiming where it had been made. This one in particular was manufactured in Mexico and sent here. Hundreds of tee shirts are created in other countries and sent to the Americas and places around the world the world looking for cheap tee shirts.   As you can see in this article (http://www.marketresearch.com/product/ display.asp?productid=1495105) , the amount of imports that we have been given in the past has grown significantly in the past ten years from places like Mexico and China because we have sent a majority of our things across the sea to different countries. The imports that we have invest up more into this ‘globalized’ market that the 21st has brought our country too.   "Trends in US Textile and Clothing Imports 2007 Update." Market Research Reports - Business Market Research Reports & Industry Analysis. Web. 09 May 2010. <http://www.marketresearch.com/product/display.asp? productid=1495105>.
    • 8. Health The 21st century has brought a sense of awareness to what is going on around the world. The Internet and computers in general have brought information that once may have been inconsumable to the peoples that were not there to see something that was going on. As we are brought to this new day in age and things like disease and hunger radiate throughout countries we need people who use their time and efforts to help them, this is where the Red Cross comes in.   The Red Cross is a foundation that has taken up the task of bringing aid to peoples whom need it. Whether it be in the United States or is places like Haiti, they are there trying to get people to a stable environment. According to this article (http:// newsroom.redcross.org/2010/01/12/disaster-alert-earthquake-in- haiti ) , you can see the help that the Red Cross has done for the people that suffered horrible effects due to the earthquake in Haiti.   Right in our backyard there are one of these centers for the Red Cross. People can come, volunteer or possibly donate money to the foundation to help all over. This brings a piece of the world health to Philadelphia and cities all over the country where there are these centers.   Morning, [...] Good. "Disaster Alert: Earthquake in Haiti «." American Red Cross Disaster Newsroom. Web. 09 May 2010. <http://newsroom.redcross.org/2010/01/12/disaster-alert- earthquake-in-haiti>.
    • 9. Education Here is a general picture of the Community College of Philadelphia. People can come here in all age groups to receive an associate’s degree in the area of their choosing. It’s hard to tell from this picture, but people of all different races come to this area, especially those attempting to learn English. They can come here and take remedial English classes in order to learn the language.   This theme can be tied back to immigration because people from different countries come here to start new lives and get a better education then the one they may have had in the country before this one. In this article (http://www.cis.org/articles/2007/ back1007.html ) it talks about how in some respect people that immigrated here/ their kids are much more likely to graduate from college then the American’s that were already living here. This building emulates the global environment that comes here for an education.   Center for Immigration Studies. Web. 09 May 2010. <http:// www.cis.org/articles/2007/back1007.html>.
    • 10. Development One of the largest groups of people that can be found in our city is the people of China Town. They came many years ago to the city and started a little culture that has developed into a spot all their own in Philadelphia.You can see through the picture the bridge that is like a barrier from the rest of the city to this area that they have made their home. Even the American traditions/sanctions that we have such as the fire company has been modified to this culture to show whom they are and what they are doing.   This article (http://www.pshrink.com/chinadopt/How_Much_Culture.html) talks about the amount of Chinese culture that has been brought to America in the recent decades. The impact that different cultures are having on our society is what is bringing up the phenomenon that we hundreds of years of society could potentially look brown and with similar features because we are all going to be conjoining.   "How Much Chinese Culture?" Edward Hume MD JD--General Adult Psychiatry. Web. 09 May 2010. <http://www.pshrink.com/chinadopt/ How_Much_Culture.html>.  
    • 11. Society and Culture For this picture a church seemed appropriate! One may be reconsidering this picture as something that does not represent our culture well at all but this one seemed appropriate. It is a church near 4th and race that is something of an ambition in the world of religion. It was founded by a couple of Germans in the 1700s when it may not have been too appropriate for them to be here. From then on, they have been a church that has accepted all peoples for who they are and that they want to do with their lives. This includes, but is not limited to, gays, Hispanics, and anyone that is interested in becoming religious.   This follows the rest of the world in our attempt to accept every race and every person for who they are. We are a generation that comes with thousands of new ideals coming forth that cannot be stopped. This article (http://www.gracecentered.com/extremes_in_churches_of_Christ.html) talks about how for the longest time Catholics and Christians have been prejudice across the world but have recently been more accepting due to circumstances that are the culture around us.   "A Profile of Extremes in Churches of Christ. Liberal or Conservative? by Steve Cummings." Free Grace Centered Magazine Focuses on Amazing Grace. Free Grace, Christianity and the Bible. Web. 09 May 2010. <http://www.gracecentered.com/extremes_in_churches_of_Christ.htm>.
