Populace is in need of an instrument that is useful to calibrate a diverse range of views and opinions on globalisation found in the growing volume of literature. The instrument will help them exercise their own judgement for keeping their footing in the rapidly evolving economic and social conditions. Such a theoretical instrument is developed here by placing globalisation in historical perspective and visualising it as an evolutionary process of human interaction. This theoretical instrument explicates the inherent nature of today's globalisation to dichotomise human society. It also helps to explain why many nations experience societal stresses and instability today. The instrument also helps to identify obstacles which globalisation needs to overcome before reaching its logical destination of the borderless world, as well as the prospective measures to enhance its sustainability.

New Advances in XRF Technology Allow for Measurement of Electroless Nickel Plating
Electroless nickel (EN) plating was introduced over 50 years ago as a means to provide lightweight materials for improved fuel efficiencies, greater corrosion performance and durability. Quickly implemented into the automotive, aerospace and transportation industries, it was also seen as an alternative to plating with chrome, because of its ability to meet engineering requirements for environmental legislation. EN applications have been widely accepted in today’s transportation industry for parts such as:...
Axetris achieves Silver Gas Award 2013
Here the original text from G&I:„The Axetris AG LGD F200 self-contained laser gas detector module is designed for integration by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems and monitoring equipment and is based on proprietary technology- enhanced tuneable diode laser spectrometry. The OEM module can measure concentrations from well under 1 ppm to 1000 ppm. This unit combines high sensitivity/selectivity, contactless hot wet measurement with low-cost of ownership,...
Noise measurement in the fast lane! - case study
Due to the nature of the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) work, noise is an inevitable by-product of its daily activities. Consequently to ensure the welfare of both its staff and the community in which it operates, VOSA undertakes regular noise assessments to ensure that the relevant regulations are being adhered to, thereby protecting both the environment in which it operates as well as all staff involved in the operations. VOSA provides a range of licensing, testing and enforcement services, with...
Use of process analyzers in cement plants solutions from Siemens – Case Study
Cement is a hydraulic binding agent to produce concrete. Due in part to the fast growth of the Asian economies, world consumption of cement is currently growing at an annual rate of 8%. Therefore, cement production is expanding and, at the same time, production processes need to be optimized to ensure maximum efficiency. In this context, process analytics plays an important role: It determines reliable and exact data from the processes and thereby allows their optimization. Siemens is a leading provider of...
Maxum process gas chromatograph measures and optimizes synthetic rubber production – Case Study
RubberRubber is a collective term for macromolecular substances of natural rubber (NR) or synthetic rubber (SR) origin. Natural rubber use dates back to the Mayas but was first recognized as technical material in 1851 by Charles Nelson Goodyear. He presented a new material produced from the milk of rubber trees, which had been treated with sulfur and vulcanized to strengthen the rubber. Years later, the development of alternatives for natural rubber was started for a number of reasons including political ones.Synth...
