Globalization is countries working together to get the supplies that they need, and making products to send elsewhere.

Claim: Globalization is what brings the world together.

Claim Explanation

Globalization is all over the world, and everybody uses it daily. People use phones and devices that are made in different countries, to go on social media, or to send a text to a family member asking how they've been. Each country helps one another whether they see it or not, because trade is a major thing between the countries and states all over the world, but it also tears us down. Yes globalization helps us throughout the world, but it also causes war between countries.

My Product

The product that I chose is made in Pakistan, but the factories that make soccer balls, get their materials and other items needed to make them from different countries, so technically it's not just Pakistan that's making them.

How Soccer Balls Are Made

There are four layers that are needed to make a soccer ball. The first layer isn't really a layer, it's more of the ball itself. The first layer is called the Bladder, which is what holds the air inside the ball, and they are usually made from Latex or Butyl. Butyl is used for holding the air longer than a latex bladder, but latex bladders are usually used because it provides the ball with the proper bounce, and it feels softer. Now Pakistan gets their rubber from different places. A few are Brazil, Thailand, and India.

The next two layers are actually the same thing, which is the internal linings, which is made from Polyester or Cotton. The linings are to give the ball it's strength, it's structure, and some of it's bounce. Also, with professional soccer balls, there are usually four layers of lining, so you know it's important. The lining also helps the ball keep it's shape. A few places that Pakistan get's cotton or polyester is India, Japan, and the United States.

The second to last layer is the cover, which is made from synthetic leather, because leather has a tendency to absorb water, which causes the ball to become very heavy. Some indoor soccer ball covers are made with a felt material, that resembling what is used on a tennis ball. Some places Pakistan gets Leather from is Japan, India, and the United States.

The last layer isn't really a layer either. The last layer is what holds the ball together, which is the stitching. Now, the panels on the soccer balls can either be stitched, glued, or thermally molded together, and the highest quality balls are stitched using a polyester or similar thread. The best kind of soccer balls are hand sewn ones, because they have tighter and stronger seams. As listed above, some places that Pakistan gets Polyester from is India, Japan, and the United States.
