Brazil: Corruption isn’t the only reason for economic turmoil.
North Korea: The shooting (and land mines and loudspeakers) have stopped.
Russia: Russia gets down and, perhaps, dirty.
India: Set-asides and the legacy of the caste system. Look up the Political Science term ‘rent-seeking’ – does that apply here?

I’ve said before that if our hard-liners and their hard-liners think the deal is a bad one, we’ve probably reached a decent compromise. In this case, in spite of the naysayers who believe that Iran will become more oppressive, these words from their dissidents should be another reason to believe the deal is a good one.
Note that the authors of the next article are from the University of Sydney (Australia); they’re removed from our domestic Conservative-Liberal battles. I found this article to be one of the best I’ve read about our domestic conflicts over the pending deal with Iran. Does what the authors say affect your views on the subject? (If you’re going to go to college, look up “Manichean” – third paragraph, “Manichean terms” – it will come up there in some assigned reading, and understanding the phrase is necessary to understanding this article.)
