'Globalisation’ is a word which has come into common use in recent years. Government policy-makers, political party leaders, businesspeople, academics, labour union leaders and the mass media all refer to the effects of globalisation and how it is changing our lives. Governments talk about how important globalisation is. On one hand they tell us that globalisation is ‘good’ for us, but on the other hand they say that many of the problems we face today are because of globalisation, not government policies.
However globalisation has different meanings to different people. Here is a common understanding of the meaning of globalisation: a rapid increase in international trade and investment in the last 20 years which is breaking down national borders and creating a single global economy – often called the ‘global village’.
Most people see globalisation as a process of change, which many have been persuaded as natural and inevitable.
• It is not true that national borders are disappearing. We live in an economic system that is international or ‘global’, but national borders are stronger than ever. It has become easier for corporations to move investment from one country to another, but in most cases this involves the active support of national governments. Governments sign international agreements and make deals to allow business and capital to move around the world easily, but it is not so easy for ordinary people to move around. National borders are still very strong, so people need passports and visas as well as facing tight immigration controls; they cannot move easily from one country to another like rich people and corporations. So the ‘global village’ looks more like a village of the rich and powerful. In fact, it is not like a village at all, it is more like a heavily fortified global garrison where a handful of powerful and wealthy people are served by the majority
The Importance of Education
Education and competition are two universal ingredients of all human cultures
"Education is empowerment. It is the key to establishing and reinforcing democracy, respect and social justice. Indeed, in a world in which creativity and knowledge play an ever greater role,
Education is an essential part of any society. Without education, a society would not survive for long, without it man is as though in a closed room and with education he finds himself in a room with all its windows open towards outside world .and is enabled to receive information from the external world
This is why Islam attaches such great importance to knowledge and education. When the Qur'an began to be revealed, the first word of its first verse was 'Iqra' that is, read. Education is thus the starting point of every human activity,
. Education is giving one the rational powers to make better choices, to be more efficient, and to advance future knowledge. . Education allows one to be able to use the knowledge they gain to improve health, technology, and economics.
Education is one of the most important things in modern country, Every modern country has a state run education system, which carries children in to there mid to late teens.
Education is the KEY to SUCCESS. If human beings do not seek education they are cheating themselves out of a potential job enhancement, salary increase, knowledge and a sense of self-worth and accomplishment

Population Growth is becoming a huge issue in our country and world today
However one thing that is clear is that the population of the world is getting larger, and the increases are not able to continue forever for we all know there are limits to the resources, such as food, water, that are needed to survive human life. Like all living things, people have a need to grow and reproduce and the more people the more feel of need they have to do so,
One stated population problem is the death rate, which is decreasing due to medical advances also, brings to more careless increasing birth rates.. This only proved that the birthrate must be reduced to the point of "zero population growth."
Many ways have already been brought to eye that have been proposed to achieve direct reduction in birthrate . Among the ones advanced in the past are: (a) providing people with effective contraception as well as reliable and safe access to abortion facilities with proper education about the value of using them as well as family planning; (b) enforcing laws to prevent couples from producing more than some standard number of children; However even with the plans and laws to regulate population the population is still growing uncontrollably and ways and time to stop it is running out.
