UNITED STATES 27 Mar 2013 Impotence pill patented 15 years ago
On 27 Mar 1998, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the first pill shown to be effective against male impotence, given the clinical name at the time of erectile dysfunction (ED).

NEW YORK 18-28 Mar 2013 Negotiations for Arms Trade Treaty begin again
The United Nations Conference on an Arms Trade Treaty in Jul 2012 failed to find consensus on regulating the transfer of conventional arms, but agreed to continue the search. At the Mar 2013 conference, the quest begins again. International trade rules exist for everything from electronics to wheat, but there are no corresponding regulations for trading in conventional arms.
