Globalization, Inequality,and a Need for a Society as Fair System of Social Cooperation
Ata Ujan Andre


This paper is an ethical reflection on globalization and the negative effects it could cause particularly in developing countries. It aims to unmask the chasm between globalization in theory and globalization in practice and then offer a new approach that can help at least to lessen the negative impacts of globalization. It is commonly understood that globalization in nature is a process of interaction aiming at integration among people, business and government of different countries. Strongly marked by free market economic system, globalization emerges as a movement that offers a new hope for societies at large to live a better life. Unfortunately, the credo of competition promoted by free market economy, generally, fails to significantly reduce inequality. Since free market economy has been treated as an economic grand narrative, it in practice tends to marginalize and even destroy local economic wisdoms. Free market economy in practice, therefore, paves the way for big corporations to control globalization. Consequently, the gap between the advanced countries and the developing countries is growing wider. Reviving the original position of economy and adopting the culture of society as a fair system of social cooperation can ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathies are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders characterized clinically by loss of sensation and autonomic dysfunction. Here is the latest research on these neuropathies.

Separation Anxiety

Separation anxiety is a type of anxiety disorder that involves excessive distress and anxiety with separation. This may include separation from places or people to which they have a strong emotional connection with. It often affects children more than adults.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.
