As he set out for their historic summit in Singapore the USA president said he was going on a "mission of peace" but would not "waste my time" if he thought Kim was insincere.

New York Times op-ed columnist and foreign policy expert Nicholas Kristof says South Korean President Moon Jae-in has brilliantly manipulated both Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un to get them to the same negotiating table.

He has also dangled the prospect of Kim Jong Un visiting Washington if the meeting goes well. Even Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, generally averse to publicly criticizing fellow Republican leaders, warned the president last week that "you could get snookered".

In addition to protection, the North Korean delegation may fine-tune its security detail to project a particular image for Kim Jong Un, said Ahn Chan-il, a defector and current president of the World Institute for North Korea Studies.

Microsoft’s effort to build underwater datacenter reaches next phase
The data center that went under is essentially a 40-foot long tank that's packed with 12 racks and a total of 864 servers. Keeping this in mind, Microsoft has designed the pod in a manner which wouldn't require maintenance for up to five years.

"I think within the first minute I'll know", Trump said.

Makes sense, as does every other part of 2018. "But I feel really confident", Trump told reporters. You ever hear of that one? "They are really working very well with us", Trump told reporters at a press conference in Quebec, adding that he was looking forward for the meeting. I think it would be good for the world.

"That takes a great deal of work, a great big commitment on the part of North Korea as well, and there'll be a parallel set of security assurances that are also big and bold and different", the top United States diplomat said.

"This is a leader who really is an unknown personality", Trump added of Kim. "Both the American as well as the North Koreans are pleased with the arrangements, we're all set to go and things will start happening within the next 24 hours". It is hard to credibly suggest progress on weapons proliferation can be durable or verifiable if North Korea remains a completely closed and totalitarian state.

LeBron James on NBA Finals Game 2 defeat: 'It sucks to lose'
Smith was still the target of Twitter memes during Sunday night's Game 2 of the NBA Finals, but this time, he wasn't alone. Smith said he "might have" told LeBron James that he thought the Cavaliers were winning when he made the costly mistake.

"The minimum would be relationship", Trump said of his goals for the meeting. PSCORE is a nonprofit that promotes reunification, raises awareness about human rights issues in North Korea, and helps defectors adjust to life in South Korea. "Thus, like his predecessors, Trump will be played by Pyongyang, as Kim demurs, defies, and blatantly violates the terms of the agreement and continues to march down his nuclear path".

Japan's government is anxious that Trump, with his "America First" focus, may accept a deal that eliminates the threat from North Korean intercontinental ballistic missiles that could strike the USA mainland, without dealing sufficiently with medium-range missiles that could strike Tokyo. But it's unclear what the USA will get out of it. President Trump has said his goal is to get North Korea to agree to a complete denuclearization, and if not, he's prepared to impose harsh sanctions. However, the U.S. president noted that G8 format was more meaningful than G7, adding that he would be positive if Russian Federation returns in the bloc.

Beijing, the North's only major ally and key economic lifeline, is also ready for a peace agreement, according to William Overholt, an Asia expert and senior fellow at Harvard University, and could "come down very hard on the North" if Pyongyang refuses to abandon its nukes despite potential USA offers of a peace treaty, security guarantees, diplomatic recognition and economic assistance.

But the Thai went through the green at the par-five 17th, duffed a chip and had to hole from six feet to only drop one shot. Kim was on the green in two, while Jutanugarn pulled her second shot into a bunker, and both walked away with a par.
