http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_citizenship

Global citizenship
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Global Citizenship is both a moral and ethical disposition which might guide an individual or groups' understanding of the local and global contexts and their relative responsibilities within different communities. It is motivated through a complex set of commitments to local interests (love of family, communal fairness, self-interest) and a sense of universal equality and notions of care for human beings and the world in its entirety. Global citizenship, as participatory action, entails a responsibility to alleviating local and global inequality, while simultaneously avoiding action that hinders the well-being of individuals or damages the planet. This notion is closely linked to an understanding of globalization and cosmopolitanism.

In the field of education, the concept of Global Citizenship Education (GCE) is rapidly incorporating, and at times superseding, references to "Multicultural Education", "Peace Education", "Human Rights Education' and "International Education".

In terms of international relations, global citizenship may refer to a nation-state's responsibility to act with awareness of the world as a global community, by both recognizing and fulfilling its global obligations, and recognizing the rights of global 'citizens'. Global citizenship is related to the idealist school of thought, that states should include a level of moral goodwill in their foreign policy considerations. Whilst a judgment of 'good' global citizenship is a subjective one, some widely agreed upon examples of cases requiring a level of good global citizenship include the signing of the Kyoto Protocol, and the upholding of the UN Charter for Human Rights. Many states struggle to strike a balance between being a 'good' and 'effective' global citizen.

The concept of global citizenship dates back as far as the Stoics of ancient Greece and Rome who pledged primary allegiance to the universal ideals of justice and honor over their allegiance to the polis or city-state. One of the earliest known declarations of global citizenship that is frequently cited by scholars came from the ancient Greek Cynic philosopher Diogenes. When asked where he came from, he would reply, "I am a citizen of the world."[1] Various intellectuals since have addressed this subject, such as Thomas Paine, author of Common Sense (1776) who wrote, "My country is the world. My countrymen are mankind." Albert Einstein, another popular intellectual, addressed the need for more of a global approach to citizenship when he wrote, "Nationalism is an infantile sickness. It is the measles of the human race."

Many challenges are presented by the term 'global citizenship', extending to a total rejection of the notion as even possible. For example, one prominent challenge is how global citizenship is closely intertwined with the concept of ethical universality (e.g., parcelling out individual responsibilities for the global). Ethical universality can frame global citizenship in terms of managerial tasks that are somehow coordinated by a larger (cohesive) entity. Global citizenship can also be seen as motivated by economic imperatives whereby one nation state encourages fluency of international markets/cultures/languages with the intent of being more competitive within a global economy. This is often identified as a 'neoliberal' approach to global citizenship. Global citizenship is people all over the world working together everyday making the world a better place.

I got the job in spite of my mouth which seemed to go into manic overdrive during the interview. I spoke a load of drivel. I'm much better in text! Anyway, I start on 9 June eeeek!
I nearly didn't get to the interview as Freddy fell of his trampoline the night before and landed on his head and then later threw up. So down to accident and emergency we went. He got the all clear and the sickness has turned out to be a virus. What a stressful 24 hours. Thank god I got the job though and it is term time only so I can carry on with Make it Science in the Hols.

No it is Sharon's sister holding a flying dildo. Sharon doesn't have any hands so her sister needs to hold the dildo. (remember, Sharon looks like a plastic bottle.)

Where they have 1 of the lowest crime rates.

Murders - Houston 248, Singapore 14.
Rape - Houston 70, Singapore 1.
Aggravated assault - Houston 471, Singapore 21.
Total reported crimes - Houston 11,453, Singapore 1,934.

Singapore has more than twice the population of Houston (4.5m against 2m).

hmmm... let me see.

Aston Martin? 1 of the best marques in the world.
Morgan? Hand-built by old school craftsmen.
Lotus? OK, Lotus are rubbish at reliability.
TVR? Bits fall off them all the time because they don't fit properly. Oh, wait a minute... they're built from American parts, aren't they. Anyway, TVR is owned by a Canadian these days. Well known for building cars, Canadians are.

Now, where was I? Oh yes...

Nissan Micra? 1 of the most reliable cars in the world. Built in NE England.
Mini? Wonderful little car and incredibly reliable. Built in Oxford.
Noble? You can't fault them. (OK, they're built in South Africa; but designed in Britain. However, they have now been bought by an American company based in Cincinatti but will continue to be bult in South Africa)
Ascari? A supercar to rival Ferrari & Lamborghini. Built in Banbury
Marcos? Face-stripping acceleration from this supercar.
Pro-drive Subaru Impreza WRC? Banbury again.

And all of the above can actually go round corners and don't need a sports stadium to do a U-turn!

American cars are still in the Dark Ages. For instance, the new Mustang has a live rear axle. WTF! Europeans got rid of those suicidal contraptions decades ago!

And when it comes to bhp per cc, the Americans are waaaaay behind. Pro-drive get over 500bhp from a 2litre 4-cylinder engine. Americans need 8litre V8s to get that much power.

The ultimate in corporal punishment is the death penalty- still used in the USA- notably by a Mr Bush.

Most civilised states have given it up. I believe most of them also have lower murder rates.

If we want a debate about the death penalty let's put it in its own thread and leave this one to congratulate the originator.

You have been plagiarizing Edmond Rostand again, I see. The phrase is spoken by the character Bellerose in the play Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand to comment on the defeat of Valvert by Cyrano.

(Blaster creature cannot even be original - plagiarizing hack Latin phrases.)

I though "sic transit gloria mundi" meant vomiting exuberantly in a van at the beginning of the week.

See, plagiarism - he has provided the proof himself! The Beve didn't even know what he was saying! GAWD. The imbecility of some creatures!

"The Beve" [sic] knew exactly what he was saying. I merely feigned ignorance and you walked straight into my trap.
