What North Korea said to South Korea when they spoke on the phone

What North Korea said to South Korea when they spoke on the phone

World
The military hotline established between the two Koreas has served as a political tool to express either peace or animosity. It’s the only communication method, at least officially, that exists between the two countries still technically at war. When relations go sour, one side, usually the North, pre-announces that it will "disconnect the hotline" -- meaning it won’t pick up the phone. When relations are rosy, the North and South have made it routine to call each other twice a day, in the morning and afternoon. Now, in what seems like a love-chase game, South Korea has found itself eagerly waiting for a call from its neighbor to the North. When the leaders of both countries expressed a willingness to send and welcome, respectively, a North Korean delegation to next month's Winter Olym

Some species more vulnerable to climate change than they appear

Some species more vulnerable to climate change than they appear

Science
Nov. 22 (UPI) -- Research suggests some species are more vulnerable to climate change they appear.In analyzing the ecosystems within tidal pools and shallow waters along the West Coast, researchers realized beds of mussels and seaweed provide protection against climate change for a variety of small marine species.According to the latest research -- published this week in the journal Ecology Letters -- seaweed and mussel beds essentially offer air conditioning to the communities of species they shelter. As a result, many species as far south as Southern California and as far north as Puget Sound have experienced equally minimal amounts of heat stress.Cursory evaluations might suggest these species are resilient to climate change or able to adapt to dramatic temperature variation, but in rea...

President Trump just claimed stock market gains actually offset national debt. They don't

Finance
President Donald Trump on Wednesday said that, "in a sense," gains made by private financial markets reduce the national debt. The claim is incorrect on its face, but it does point to how the president views the economic interplay between the federal government and Wall Street."The country — we took it over and owed over $ 20 trillion," Trump said in an interview on Fox News, referring to the total national debt, which has hovered near $ 20 trillion since early 2016."As you know, the last eight years, [the federal government] borrowed more than it did in the whole history of our country," Trump said. "So they borrowed more than $ 10 trillion, right? And yet we picked up $ 5.2 trillion just in the stock market. Possibly picked up the whole thing in terms of the first nine months, in terms o
