Even before the COVID 19 pandemic, Brainly found an audience among students – especially 13-19 year olds, Borkowski said – who turned to the service to connect with people who could help them with their homework when they were in a dead end with a problem, say, mathematics, or managing the succession of events that led to the revolutions of 1848. The platform is open and a bit like a quora for homework, because people can find and answer questions that interest them, and ask questions themselves. McBride, J., and A. Chatzky. What is the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)? New York, NY: Council on Foreign Relations. Available online: www.cfr.org/backgrounder/what-trans-pacific-partnership-tpp. One thing Brainly started to see, he says, is that with the pandemic, more parents started using the app alongside students, either to find answers together or to get help themselves before helping their children, some of whom came from parents of children under 13. He said that 15 to 20% of all new registrations currently come from parents. On January 23, 2017, the United States withdrew from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and questioned the future of the U.S.-Japan beef trade. Given that the United States is the world`s largest producer of beef and Japan is the largest export market for U.S. beef, free trade agreements between these two nations have the potential to influence the global beef market. Traditionally, the United States has been an advocate for multilateral trade since World War II.

Current U.S. trade policy has moved from multilateralism to renegotiating and restructuring small agreements. After the withdrawal of the TPP, the Trump administration, for example, pursued a bilateral trade agreement with Japan to improve U.S. access to Japan. The U.S.-Japan Trade Agreement (USJTA), signed in October 2019, aims to strengthen bilateral trade (Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, 2019a). These nations account for about 30% of global GDP. Observers expect the agreement to benefit the U.S. beef industry, as Japanese tariffs will increase from 38.5% to 9% by 2033.
