Do Western and Eastern countries define “developed country” in a same way? If not, how they differ?
very true and quite a historical insight into early Korea !, Like you said It was due to another foreign power that disrupted the very balance of community values. during the Han or Qing dynasty, China was reliant on the philosophy of Confucianism; Confucianism was principally based around family values. then Marco Polo came and decided to profit from China's wealth which was supposedly gained through peace and obviously following the family values that Confucianism stood for, China refused to engage in large scale trading with the European countries and thus the war began. "door" to china was literally blasted through, The Chinese whom had all the necessary resources to develop weapons had felt it would be wise not to in order to preserve peace and stability, but at the risk of not being able to defend from attacks. Later on in the years Japan had also attacked China and Korea, these were events that were partly responsible for making china what it is today... but now they use their foreign trade to their advantage and as China prospers the living conditions continue to improve. China also doesn't actively seek enemies as do certain western countries eg: the United states of America (NSA's probably reading this right now) but it has grown a little aggressive throughout the decade and old grudges wont be forgotten... Anyways I went off topic, but to conclude, very meaningful and debatable question.

Do jails (Gaols) rehabilitate?
if they offer the psychological and philosophical help needed. Than yes. But if the inmates require solitude to reflect than that may accomodate to some

Anyong!! So the factors that determine "developed" differ throughout the west and east. However economically the meaning developed is based on a singularity meaning: countries that are developed use advanced technology to produce goods and the living standards are higher. But what if these technologically countries are so advanced but the communities are in bad shape and people turn on one and another just to get ahead, and a place where there is little respect. Compare that to a developing nation, where community values are held with utmost value and the people treat each other with dignity and respect. Which one do you think is "developed" judging by ur own definition ?

What is the bond that holds a community together? If woven properly, how can this common bond positively change the world?
Well wars can be averted, but on a community scale disputes can be averted as we learn to compromise. But at every source of a community is family. Family is the first step towards a community, each family has different views and values but when we are woven together by love, respect and compassion towards on and another, we can create a better community to influence other families part of an even bigger community. Now that's just the spark for a better world... We just to ignite

When is the last time you went outside and just experienced nature ?
Nature is now gradually drifting away from our grasp, as we urbanise at an explosive rate we consume all land and "nature" around us. Visiting a national park is almost as close as we'll ever get, atleast for suburban lifers like me. But the question is R U afraid to go and experience nature far away from your comfort zone I.e. City, suburbs.

Jack Andraka: A promising test for pancreatic cancer ... from a teenager
That's TRUE, the economic advantage is that the more U produce the cheaper it becomes, this is basic commerce theory. The more you produce the fixed costs will be outweighed by the variable costs and profit, but I predict at this rate and our current scientific advancement we may be able to source, make carbon nanotubes or even develop more cheaper versions. But I also give credit to Jack's ability to have this kind of knowledge and enthusiasm, this may seem like something small but this may well truly be a stepping stone to something greater.

Why can't we all get together and find a cure to all terminal diseases?
This may seem like brilliant idea but unfortunately most of the world won't move an inch to assist in this, why? Well unfortunately we are all driven by money and greed. No one will do this unless there is something in it for them. Competition is healthy but when it becomes personal and sabotage etc that will undermine the research itself then rather than construction we have fallen into a pit of our own destruction. Bob Gu
