Such a classification has stirred debates among scholars, as it conveys the preconceived idea that social groups ‘progress’ following this linear trajectory – furthermore, it is difficult to define the moment and the circumstances associated to a change of status (when does a band become a tribe?) (Young 2014:19). In addition, this framework implies that sociocultural complexity is the striking feature of the state – or, at least, characterises social groups that are in the process of becoming one. In his paper, Possehl goes against this view by
We can assert that this merger has been a success in terms of cultural integration. Of course there have been some problems, for instance on the financial field, but we will assume for this work that the cultural one has to gather our research. Why has it been a success? To briefly sum up the background of this merger, two companies from each "world" (the Old one for Arcelor and the New one for Mittal) decide to gather their skills their infrastructures, their workforce to be smarter and more powerful into this hypercompetitive (D'Aveni, 1997) and global steel market. Several main reasons can explain this achievement, and we will deal with these in this part.
We are a melting pot because we have a lot of different cultures, but we are trying to drive towards one mainstream culture and cover all of the outlying values, practices, and ideas. This is why they suggest that we should be a mosaic. A mosaic looks better and better the more differences you have within it. All of the differences come together to make a masterpiece. No one 100% aligns with mainstream culture.
Architecture has its own language and translation which invokes the historical quotations and ideological significance. If we go around all over the different parts of the world we will encounter regions different to each other in all aspects, which would ultimately trace down to its culture, ideology, religion and civilization, the mix of these would then create the identity of the people who inhabit the region. Architecture has its own way leaving impressions on the people and the future generations. Buildings tend to leave a tangible trace of government’s policymaking. The “great public works projects,” constructed during the period of Francois Mitterrand, are more than just a reflection of France’s cultural policies but they also project an image of a “builder president,” who once wrote: “I feel in every city as if I am the emperor or an architect.
It may not be the same as it was earlier. Architectural theory when seen at a larger scale can be about discussing various styles which have evolved and how the existing building styles are fulfilling the idea behind their creation. The importance of this is highlighted as it offers an insight into how the whole process of design and the idea of design have been successful in creating an architecture which is accepted widely. The theory of architecture not only deals with analyzing a structure but also helps in providing varying and logical solutions to the existing problems and also empowers the designer to
Three architectural structures – though one is naturally occurring – provide the outline for the book’s three sections: Mosque, Caves and Temple. Forster presents the aesthetics of Eastern and Western structures as indicative of the differences of those particular cultures as a whole. In India, architecture is confused and formless: interiors blend into exterior gardens, earth and buildings compete with each other, and structures appear unfinished or drab. As such, Indian architecture mirrors the muddle of India itself and what Forster sees as the Indians’ characteristic inattention to form and logic. Occasionally, however, Forster takes a positive view of Indian architecture.
The Influence of Cross-cultural Differences on Job Interview Decisions. International Journal of Human Resource Management, 24(18), 3512-3533. This article provides an examination, using past literature, of the interview process through the lens of Hofstede’s framework of national culture (Hofstede, 2001) and how unintentional discrimination occurs against foreign job applicants. The authors aimed to utilise this paper to explore the relationship between cultural differences and applicants’ performance in job interviews, an understudied area as previous literature focused on more obvious employment barriers such as recognition of foreign work experience, credentials and so forth. The authors concluded that cultural differences between interviewers and interviewees increases potential misunderstandings and misinterpretations, therefore resulting in poor ratings for foreign job applicants.
The increasing rate of automation will benefit humanity in many ways - it will increase productivity, reduce labor costs of production, facilitate the choices we constantly face, and more. Nevertheless, these benefits will come with a hefty price tag which will put a strain on mankind in a socioeconomic manner. We will have to solve various

Building Information Modeling is a technology that is gaining popularity internationally because of its benefits in the construction sector. Such benefits include accurate geometrical representation of the building that provides information for efficient management, productivity gains like reduced rework, costs, and errors and creating an overall better quality product. Although Building Information Modeling technology offers various benefits, it is important to note that the level of success and the advantages of the technology depend on many factors like the size of the project, stakeholders’ BIM proficiencies, communication links between the project team and other organizational and external factors.
