Pace of change

Pace of change is how quickly something changes. It also can be the pace of the change.

For example, in the video I noticed that Christianity was being rejected and that is was spreading slowly. Just as emperor Constantine was going to die, he was baptized. This caused the anti-christianity laws to be revoked. The pace of change of Christianity sped up because people saw that Constantine became Christian people began to convert too.

Another example that I saw was that the secret of silk was not shared so the romans had to go to China to get it. The pace of change was really slow because the Chinese didn't want to share the source of silk. It took many years for the secret to be revealed to the rest of the world.

Economic and government impacts of globalization

Economic impacts

One economic impact of globalization is Kenyan coffee export becuase it is traded all around the world so people drink that coffee. Another economic impact is international restaurants because people can enjoy the wonders of the world. Also, another impact is free trade agreements because people can trade easily because two countries unite for the better good for both.

Cultural impacts

A cultural impact of globalization is religion because people get to know new religions and they might change religion. Another cultural impact is language because there is the same language all around the world because of connection of countries. Lastly, another cultural impact is clothes because people see new clothes from different parts of the world so they wear them because of connection of countries.

racism problems in south korea

If I lived in south Korea I would have to adapt to discrimination because south koreans don't like foreigners to live in their country and they think that if a lot of foreigners they will push natives out of their jobs and that foreigners would become the majority group in south Korea. I would be insulted and mistreated in the streets and natives would sit away from me in public transportation and it would be more difficult for me to get a good job and to make friends at university. I would have less privilege because I would be discriminated and it would be harder for me to support my life.

what would you do

article: schooling in India

If I were a girl in India my life would be very different because I wouldn't have a good education and I wouldn't have a good future. I would have to adapt to that society where my marriage was arranged and that would be really hard because I already grew up in a society where people are free to do what they want with their lives. Also, I would try really hard to stay in school and get to 12 grade.

implicit association test

I did the light skin-dark skin tests and my results said that I have strong automatic preference for dark skin compared to light skin.

When I got my results I was shocked because I always thought that I preferred being light skinned by dark skinned. I also, felt unique because most of my friends prefer light skin than dark skin.
