The globalization of Prison Systems. As a world, we are raised to understand that crime is punishment and punishment is the reasonable action for crime. If someone commits a crime, such as anything which is against the law or unmoral to the community, one sent to trial in which sentenced to whichever happy ending is chosen. We were all raised to understand, don’t do wrong. Bad happens to those who do wrong. Have we always lived in the idea that we go to jail and serve time? Has the Jail system always existed? Not at all. Everything has a history, especially the dawn of imprisonment and punishment. This system as grown rapidly into what we call Jail and labour. Socially this system scares us, Culturally it affects everyone around the world differently, Economically it is very expensive, Politically there’s a debate about a new prison change, Military play roles as enforces for Jail, and is very important to understand how the creation on the Prison System, is and has affected our world Globally to be enforce the laws that it has. Every country has a Prison system, and every country handles the crime of immoral human behavior very different. But yet it’s so similar, that Globally we may need to remember our own morals in how to treat a human being in truly being productive in the sakes of other lives!

For this benchmark I made a website and I found it really interesting mostly because I felt so strongly about this topic. I really enjoyed doing this project because we got to pick which topic of globalization we wished to write about.
This benchmark was very interesting I learned a lot about global trade and how important it is to society and how we aren't always told the truth about what's going on. I think that as citizens we have a right to know everything that's going on within our country especially when it pertains to things that we're buying and selling to other countries. This is also ties back to how things are created. I'm really happy I decided to do this as my 4th quarter benchmark
Street art; often this is graffiti, stickers, or artistic objects that should not belong. Street art is for the masses. Since cavemen and egyptians took to the walls telling stories and speaking ideas this written word and art has hung around. Anyone can go up to a wall and put something on it. The people who are very good create art or inspire the masses. Graffiti is normally political. Often it is a way to make a name and express oneself. Always though; it is always communication.
When street art is very good it either inspires you or makes you think. Perhaps both. Around the world the voiceless people can take paint or markers and make their mark on the wall. It can just be art or a doodle it does not need to be anything important. The sheer act of that scribble changes the landscape of something.
In America the graffiti points out the greed and the people in power. In Lybia the artists paint about their time in the jail cells. Or Toyko where graffiti is actually encouraged. Graffiti more than anything is globalization. Globalization is the connection of people all over the world. With the invention of the internet street art which used to be a fleeting art could now be shared and live long after it was painted over. People in the UK could see gang art from New York. Banksy and Shepard Fairey are the biggest political graffiti artists but they are not the only ones. With this project I will find people all over the world who express themselves through graffiti art. What does graffiti mean in a community? To a country? Globally?

I chose to use this as my topic because its something that I have been around my entire life. Cigarettes are extremely popular from youth all the way to the elderly. As someone who has smoked cigarettes plenty of times, but has never fallen victim to their addictive qualities I have always had a very large indifference with cigarettes and never quite could understand them. I have always been interested in the idea of people spending so much money on something like this and they have been around for decades, never really losing their popularity despite plenty of people fighting against them. Not only are cigarettes extremely popular and present in todays economy, but also in the media. From commercials to movies cigarettes are widely used and talked about.
Cigarettes addictiveness has kept people spending tons of money just to get their fix. Some people would refer to this as a “legal drug” and in reality this is true. When it comes to globalization and the economy cigarettes are a worldwide favorite. Cigarettes were traded heavily by the europeans and when the industrial revolution arrived they became even more popular. This lasted for a long time where plenty of people were constantly smoking, until the 1900s arrived with more scientific advances that taught people about the dangerous qualities of cigarettes, however this was not enough to end the era of cigarettes and they are still sold and used everywhere to this day.
Cigarettes also made it into the music industry. Widely song about in all genres of music. Cigarettes are known as a national symbol for coolness and people associated with being cool usually smoke cigarettes whether its characters in film or actual celebrities all the way to your local high school cool kids and frat boys.
"The history of Tobacco ." . Boston University Medical Center, n.d. Web. 9 May 2013. <http://academic.udayton.edu/health/syllabi/tobacco/history.htm>.
This site has a good amount of information for the more history related aspects of Tobacco which can help me trace globalization to some of its earlier days. I will be able to get some of the details from its launch into the trade.
I chose these two advertisements because they show a great example about how the difference in scientific research on cigarettes was changed over time and discovered to be unhealthy and no longer promoted by doctors.
Fort Minor- Cigarettes . Youtube, Film. 9 May 2013. <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q4BtXstAMVc>.
This song is a perfect example of cigarettes and their influence on todays modern media and youth. The music is listened to all over and it talks a lot about cigarettes in a metaphor for rapping, but also talks about how cigarettes are an example for coolness.

I wasn’t sure how to format this link, but i plan to use this as an example for the distribution of tobacco as well as tobacco accessories which are also something that overwhelms the economy.
I chose this picture because it shows the simplicity and expense of modern day tobacco sales and how people can not only get them easily, but they are quite expensive for their mass abundance.

My topic of choice for this benchmark is the topic of statelessness. The way I believe statelessness relates globalization lies directly in the name. People who are statelessness belong to no one. They can’t get jobs, health insurance, or citizenship with the worst part being the countries that live won’t grant it to them. Since countries don’t recognize them as citizens, their welfare is completely irrelevant to the global world. They aren’t granted basic human rights that we, as citizens in a global community, try to uphold. Also a lot of the time with stateless people, their culture is also at stake. The government, or anyone for that matter, has the ability to do literally whatever they want to stateless people because they belong to no one. Because of this, many stateless people fall into human trafficking, another serious issue. Granted, many countries have been making advances to help these people regain citizenship but one thing I was thinking of covering is when different cultures assimilate into other cultures. Is their culture also being lost when they gain these basic human rights through gaining a nationality? Something like statelessness can easily been fixed but the reason it hasn’t been is because many countries don’t know how to deal with something like statelessness. The majority of people can’t even really comprehend what it’s like to be stateless because they’re used to the idea that someone born somewhere are always considered a citizen. I think that in order for statelessness to cease to be an issue, countries must first recognize that these people are being greatly discriminated against and then development laws that both ensure a citizenship and also ensure the protection of their basic human rights.
