Abstract The United States’ long-standing broad “catch-all” political parties have historically combined voters from distinct regions of the country, each including both rural and urban dwellers. Since the late 1990s, however, rural Americans nationwide have increasingly supported the Republican Party, while urbanites have persisted in their allegiance to the Democratic Party. The growing rural-urban divide has become mapped onto American polarization in ways that are fostering tribalism. This place-based cleavage is now contributing to the transformation of the nation’s politics and that of many states. It also threatens to have deleterious effects on democracy.

As the Chinese e-commerce market appears as a leading trend that helps to reduce cost of both consumers and sellers during transactions, decrease the development gap between rural and urban areas, and create job opportunities which lead to increment of employment rate, Taobao becomes one of the largest e- commerce platforms in China for it caters to the needs of small and medium sellers, leaving other similar platforms behind. However, as the retail sales and the number of users skyrockets each year, the obstacles that e-commerce platforms face also become more obvious. Therefore, this research attempts to narrow down things that hinder e-commerce platforms from further expanding and provide viable solutions that e-commerce platforms could try to employ. To collect information about the challenges faced by e-commerce users and the possible solutions, the research focuses on relevant literature reviews and data before and in 2021. The main concerns for the development of e-commerce platforms, specifically for Taobao, are the rating system, fraud transaction, and the logistic services. According to relevant literature, providing a descriptive survey for the rating system, setting up inspection departments, and establishing its own logistic company or creating a ranking system for logistic companies that cooperate with Taobao are all possible solutions that Taobao can refer to. This research tries to identify concerns that e-commerce users generally have for e-commerce platforms that still lack improvement. Through the combination of related articles and creative ideas, it offers hypothetically effective solutions to the challenges that are identified. The research intends to help the Chinese e-commerce market to evolve into the next level and make electronic transactions more pleasant for platform users.

This paper entitled "The Role of Islamic Education Teachers in Helping Students Respond to Global Challenges", is described specifically in the learning process in schools, especially in a global era that is full of various kinds of challenges. This paper is based on literature studies, for example about globalization, the description of rural and urban communities, as written by Eko Budiharjo in Urban Reform, about education, about learning, and others. Globalization is one of the foundations, because we live in the era of globalization, so a study of this will provide an overview of the times, for ISLAMIC EDUCATION (Islamic Education) teachers. A little study of rural and urban communities is also the basis of the study, because now there has been a shift in the way of life of the community towards urban communities. And also provides an overview, the differences between villages and cities, differences in value order, cultural order, mindset order to behavior patterns, especially students. This knowledge is needed by teachers to use as a basis for acting or making decisions. The study of education or learning, is a sure thing for teachers. This paper is also based on the experience and observations of the author, when he was a teacher several years ago, for approximately 20 years. Between experience, observations, and literature in the form of theoretical studies are mixed into writing.
