"They are exhausted," says a diplomat who left Pyongyang last week after meeting military officers there.      "They       are      absolutely      not prepared for war."     But      that,      he adds,      does not exclude the possibility of      suicidal      miscalculation.     North Korea remains opaque, its politics impenetrable, but no longer hermetically sealed from the outside world. Traders and refugees are getting out and   even arranging phone calls to relatives within range of Chinese mobile phone towers.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
