The Hanoitimes - The sanctions leave direct impact on North Korean economy shown through a sharp decline in exports last year. What are visions for the denuclearization after second no-deal summit? The failure of the second Trump-Kim summit in Hanoi suggests sanctions remain a big issue between the US and North Korea, foreign media quoted international experts as saying. The UN Security Council votes to adopt a resolution imposing sanctions against North Korea. Photo: Getty Images North Korean nuclear negotiator Kim Yong Chol told Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in May 2018 that Pyongyang’s shift away from weapons was “not a result of sanctions that have been imposed from outside.” But in July 2018, Seoul-based Bank of Korea estimated the North Korean economy had seen its biggest decline in two decades, with the country’s real annual gross domestic product (GDP) falling by 3.5% in 2017 while exports declined 37.2% in 2017 alone. … [Read more...] about How much do US-led sanctions hurt North Korea economy?

Laboring over the age-old question "What do women look for in men?", scientists added an item to the list Wednesday: legs slightly longer than average, with a good shin-to-thigh ratio. Long arms, however, fail to impress. In an online survey, some 800 American women preferred faceless male figures "when their legs are slightly longer than average" - but not too long, said studyco-author Thomas Versluys of the University of Cambridge. The women, aged 19-76 from different racial groups, were asked to judge the attractiveness of computer-generated male silhouettes with slight differences in leg- and arm length. The respondents preferred legs that were just above the average length, but not too long. They also found figures most attractive "when the ratio between the lower and upper limb segment - shin and thigh - was average," Versluys told AFP. However, "we also found that arm length has no effect on attractiveness." In the study of sexual selection in humans, limb proportions are known … [Read more...] about Long legs turn women’s heads, arm length immaterial: study
