In nation trade each trading partner has something to gain, such as access to more goods , services and lower prices.

The Korean War began on the early morning of June 25, 1950 and ended on July 27, 1953. The two major parties of this war were North Korea and South Korea.

The cyber attack plagued over 32,000 computers and servers with a virus or “computer bug” (Bits and Bytes Powerpoint, Onesti & Richart). The virus crashed multiple computers and enabled them all to function extremely slow, or not function at all. This attack was targeted at banks and broadcasting computers (Pearson). Sources say that these attacks were traced to an IP address in China. However, this does not mean that China was at fault. The article states that North Korea is under

For instance, Hillary Clinton who is female politician now running her campaign for the United States presidential election of 2016. So far she has got more percentage over her male competitors. Similar trends may be observed in other countries of the world, such as Germany, where the Chancellor, i.e. the head of the government, is a woman, or South Korea where has been run by female president and same position can be seen in Brazil, as well. Even we can see such politicians in Islamic world where 27 years old female has been elected as a First Muslim Swedish minister.
