But stop and think for a moment about the many positive aspects that globalization is bringing. Read on and you are bound to feel comforted,ready to face the global future,which is surely inevitable now. Consider the Internet,that prime example of our shrinking world.

MTV is another global provider that is often criticized for imposing popular culture on the unsuspecting millions around the world. Yet the viewers’ judgment on MTV is undoubtedly positive;it is regarded as indispensable by most of the global teenage generation who watch it,a vital part of growing up. And in the final analysis,what harm can a few songs and videos cause? Is the world dominance of brands like Nike and Coca-Cola so bad for us,when all is said and done?Sportswear and soft drinks are harmless products when compared to the many other things that have been globally available for a longer period of time—heroin and cocaine,for example. In any case,just because Nike shoes and Coke cans are for sale,it doesn’t mean you have to buy them—even globalization cannot deprive the individual of his free will. Critics of globalization can stop issuing their doom and gloom statements. Life goes on,and has more to offer for many citizens of the world than it did for their parents’ generation. 66.

[单选题]A recent report on population trend conducted by the think tank of the Worldwatch Institute identifies signs of slowing growth in some countries.It says populations in 32 countries-all in the industrialized world-have stabilized because of declining birthrates.But in a handful of developing countries where population is slowing, the cause isn’t something to 46 , because more people are dying. This trend is called “population fatigue,” and it’s beginning in many of the developing countries that have experienced 47 birthrates and sharp population growth for several decades.Governments in these countries are now having trouble dealing with feeding, housing and educating an increasing number of children, while at the same time confronting the falling water table,deforestation and soil erosion that rapid population growth brings.In these countries any new threat-infectious disease, drought or famine-can become a full-blown crisis.AIDS is a case 48.WHO estimates calculate that one-quarter of the adult population of Zimbabwe and Botswana are infected with the AIDS virus, 49 ,these countries stands to lose at least one-quarter of their labor force in the next decade from AIDS alone, a situation 50 since the yellow fever swept through Europe in the 14 th century.Social unrest is also increasing in these countries.One example is the 51 conflict between the Tutsis and the Hutus in Rwanda, where population pressures reduced cropland 52 where it could no longer feed those who lived on it.Demands on the world fisheries and shared water resources are likely to spark similar conflicts.Already the waters of the Nile are so heavily used that little reaches the Mediterranean, so any increase in demand or 53 in allocation will also increase tensions. The bottom line is that human population growth is 54 to slow one way or the other. Developing societies will either recognize problems on the horizon and act to encourage smaller families-or unchecked births will have their 55 in rising death rates.
