I think it went from being interesting to being almost compulsive viewing when Donald said he had done little to no preparation for it because he didn't need to, with his super sense of intuition and people skills he'll be able to read KJU like a book within the first minute and if he doesn't like what he sees he just might walk away.

I don't know man, you're asking the wrong guy, you should probably ask some Americans who pay attention to this stuff. And care.

 

From what I understand from seeing people squabble online though - I might be wrong but don't care enough to google it - the economy and job growth has been steadily improving for some time now, Trump took over a healthy, growing economy and took credit for it.

 

So when people look at the healthy economy ( that he apparantly had nothing to do with), and balance that against the unpopular stuff he has done they decide that overall they don't approve of the job he's doing.

 

Like I say, I think there's a bit more to it than just not being able to accept other people's opinion that he's doing well.

you all see them bragging about lil' Rocket Man's security detail?  Like he's the most protected dicktater in the world or sth. Was a really nice MercyDays limo he was slidin' though,,,  

but a question for Mace,,,,  can't a motivated assassin get hold of a Stinger, or whatever,,, and isn't that enough to obliterate a limo like that and it's occupants? My point being no security detail can stop a motivated guy packing the right heat.  Yes, No ?

White House Releases Agenda For Tomorrow's Historic Summit

 

Comment:

 

Life is a giant negotiation where we constantly bargain with people in an effort to reach our goals. Like him or not, his skills got Trump to where he is today. The article below delves into the often undervalued fundamentals, psychological skills, strategies, and the structured approach that enhance the chance of reaching a positive result.

Top secrete: Kim 'brings' portable toilet to Singapore to ‘deny enemies insight into his stool’

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has reportedly gone to extreme measures to prevent his enemies getting an insight into the state of his health during the Singapore summit – including bringing his very own toilet.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-06-11/china-s-jumbo-jet-diplomacy-shows-influence-in-trump-kim-talks

 

China isn’t officially represented in the historic talks between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, but that hasn’t stopped Beijing from making its presence felt.

Kim arrived in the city state Sunday aboard a Boeing 747 operated by Air China Ltd., China’s state-run flagship carrier. The flight was both a potent display of China’s industrial might -- and a message that the country had North Korea’s back.

“All these symbols are worth reading into,” Shawn Ho, an associate research fellow at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, told a panel discussion Monday in Singapore. “China continues to have a major stake in the Korean Peninsula,” he said, and it “seems to be ready to support north Korea.”

Chinese President Xi Jinping -- who also travels on an Air China 747 -- has a lot at stake in the first-ever talks between a sitting U.S. president and a supreme North Korean leader. If they fail, Xi will be looking to avert chaos or conflict on his border. If they work, he risks an old ally being drawn closer to America.

 

Xi’s contribution of the jet was necessary because Kim lacks the aircraft and military reach needed to ensure his safety on the almost 5,000-kilometer (3,000-mile) journey from Pyongyang to Singapore. That’s one reason he wants to end international sanctions and develop his economy.

Air China shares rose 1.1 percent in Hong Kong trading Monday, outperforming a 0.3 percent gain in the benchmark Hang Seng Index.

Accepting such Chinese support might be seen as an admission of weakness for a leader whose image is based on the philosophy of “Juche,” or self-reliance. Interestingly, North Korea made no attempt to conceal the contribution, publishing a photo of Kim exiting the jet in the regime’s main newspaper Monday and repeatedly mentioning the “Chinese plane” in state media reports.

China’s foreign ministry, however, would only provide a short statement on the plane, despite repeated questions at a regular news briefing Monday in Beijing.

 

“As requested by the DPRK side, China’s civil airline offered a relevant service to the DPRK delegation,” ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said, referring to North Korea’s formal name.

Biggest Partner

China has repeatedly sought to assert it’s crucial role in the talks. As North Korea’s largest trading partner, China’s enforcement of United Nations sanctions helped bring Kim to the negotiating table, while also shielding his regime from Trump’s threats of military action.

The plane reflects China’s effort to show itself as a leader in issues of regional concern, said Chucheng Feng, co-founder of GRisk, a Hong Kong-based political risk consulting firm. “China cannot be absent on such occasions,” Feng said.

Air China announced last week that it would resume regular flights between Beijing and Pyongyang after a six-month hiatus -- the latest sign that the “maximum pressure” campaign on North Korea may be easing. Air China declined to comment Monday on Kim’s use of the plane.

In the run-up to the summit, Kim visited China twice to meet with Xi. During their March meeting in Beijing, Xi told Kim that China had made a “strategic choice” to have friendly ties with North Korea, and that they would “remain unchanged under any circumstances.”

The plane is a way for China to say it still has a big role to play in the situation, said Paul Haenle, a former China director on the U.S. National Security Council who now heads the Carnegie-Tsinghua Center in Beijing. “China’s trying to stay engaged in the diplomacy and to not be a participant on the sidelines of this.”

Question, what other uses could those nukes be used for if torn apart? Could they just like stick in something and make it a battery to charge a city for a year?

icnif77:

I'd say the biggest drawback in use of nuclear fuel is radiation, which is harmful to human and other living creatures.

Even, disposal of used nuclear fuel (Cesium) is tricky process, what makes nuclear fuel very expensive in the long run.

Have a look at Chernobyl ... accident site... It will be harmful to human another 100 years or so. The reactor is enclosed in cement dome to prevent spreading of radiation. However, wild life flourish after the human left the area.

Forward Question

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
