Kim Jong-un says 3rd summit with Trump possible

PYONGYANG – Kim Jong-un, top leader of the Democratic People’s Repub

lic of Korea (DPRK), said he is willing to meet the US president again on certain cond

itions, the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported on Saturday.

Kim made the remarks in his policy speech marking the First Session of the 14th Supreme People’s Assembly (SPA) on Frid

ay, a day after he was re-elected as chairman of the DPRK’s State Affairs Commission (SAC).

“If the United States adopts a correct posture and comes to the third DPRK-US summit with a certain methodology that can be shar

ed with us, we can think of holding one more (round of) talks,” Kim said. “It is necessary for both sides not to table t

heir unilateral demands but find out a constructive solution to meet each other’s interests.”

The top leader said he will “wait for a bold decision” from Trump “with patience till the end of this year.”

In his speech, Kim blamed the United States for only considering

its own interests during the second DPRK-US Summit in Vietnam’s Hanoi this Febru

ary. This has led the DPRK to question Trump’s willingness to improve relations with the DPRK.

China-led project expected to enhance space research

The ongoing China-led international collaboration project Tianq

in, a space-based gravitational wave detection syste

m scheduled to be completed by 2035, is expected to significantly improve unders

tanding of major cosmic phenomena, including black holes, scientists said.

Tianqin uses the Chinese words tian, meaning sk

y or heavens, and qin, meaning stringed musical instrument.

It will consist of three satellites forming an equilater

al triangle around Earth at an orbit of 100,000 kilometers.

Tianqin will work to detect gravitational waves, whic

h scientists theorize are ripples in the fabric of space-time caused by violen

t cosmic events, such as colliding black holes, supernovas and even the birth of the universe.

EU gives PM May ‘flexible’ Brexit recess to Oct 31

European Union leaders gave Theresa May a new Brexit deadline of Oct 31, four months longer than the p

rime minister asked for, in a move the EU summit chair said would let Britain resolve its domestic deadlock on the issue.

“EU27/UK have agreed a flexible extension until 31 October,” European Council Pres

ident Donald Tusk tweeted after eight hours of talks that went into the early hours of Thursday.

“This means (an) additional six months for the UK to find the best

possible solution,” Tusk added on the eve of what would otherwise have been the day Britain

crashed out of the bloc with no deal to smooth the departure for businesses and citizens.

Britain, he stressed, could still leave earlier if May secures parlia

mentary backing for her Brexit treaty, or it could amend what it wants from a future trade pact. “Until t

he end of this period, the UK will also have the possibility to… cancel Brexit altogether,” Tusk added.

The agreement gives May more than the three months to June 30 that she asked for to bui

ld a parliamentary majority behind the withdrawal treaty she negotiated with the EU last year.

For Ashley Gray, a 26-year-old web developer living

 on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, her best time is in the e

vening, after a long and tiring day at work — and when she is alone.

“I will cook my own dinner – I can eat whatever I want, and I will go to the gym, then get beer

s and watch my favorite shows on Netflix,” said Gray, who has been single for about five years after brea

king up with her college boyfriend. “Or I can choose to hang out with my friends.”

She said she likes to be free to go with the flow and be respons

ible only for herself, and not having to compromise.

“I just feel like I’m happier and more myself [when I’m alone]

,” Gray said, adding she’s also busy trying to advance her career, so she doesn’t want to spend extr

a time on taking care of a partner or children if she gets into a relationship or gets married.

Factors contributing to the rise of one-person hous

s include new views on marriage, high levels of divorce, increased education that leads to more employment and b

etter-paying career opportunities, and increased longevity and improved health at older ages.

The growth of one-person households could have numerous consequences for society, ran

ging from housing and health care to the fertility rate and consumption patterns, say experts.

In the US, one major reason for staying single is that marriage isn’t view

ed as it once was, and the age at which one gets married is also rising, the Census report shows.

More than half of the participants in a nationally representative sample (55 percent) sai

d that getting married was not an important criterion for becoming an adult, according to the Census report. The sa

me percentage also said that having a child was not an important milestone of adulthood.

“Decades ago, people often waited (or tried to wait) until marrying before having kids, h

aving sex, or buying a home,” Bella DePaulo, a social scientist at the University of California, Santa Barbara, t

old China Daily in an email. “Now those possibilities are readily available outside of marriage.”
