TimeThe human race lives on Earth. The human race is made up of people, and these people, whatever their family background is, are all given one thing when they are born: time.

Even though Milan used a lot of money building the buildings, Italy will gain a lot more at expo as soon as Expo get full of people. Just like the shanghai Expo, china earned a lot of money by openin...
