Give Kim Jong Un credit: He got to meet with the President of the United States on an equal footing and, therefore, the prestige that went with it that he clearly sought, and that neither his father nor his grandfather were able to obtain. In addition, the joint communique that the two leaders issued implicitly accepts that America has dropped its long-standing effort to achieve a reunified, democratic Korea. President Trump evidently has no problem with the long-term survival of perhaps the most brutal dictatorship on the face of the earth.

Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka one off the lead at the FedEx St. Jude Classic

  Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka one off the lead at the FedEx St. Jude Classic Phil Mickelson and Brooks Koepka are among a large group of players one back of Seamus Power at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Brooks Koepka, the reigning U.S. Open champion, and Phil Mickelson, who looks to complete the career grand slam at Shinnecock Hills, each carded four-under 66s at TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tenn., putting them one back of leader Seamus Power.Mickelson, who has twice finished runner-up in this event, entered the week in good form, having played his last three rounds in 12-under at the Memorial Tournament to finished in a tie for 13th.

March Madness has ended, and the results were resounding. Jaejoong pretty much swept every round without much fuss, except If it were simply his looks he would’ve been knocked out a long time ago. After all, a pretty face with nothing else to back it up doesn’t get as far as you may think in the long run.

In the final round of THE PLAYERS Championship 2017, Si Woo Kim captured the lead at the end of his front nine and never looked back as he played an unflappable round of golf to become the youngest winner in PLAYERS Championship history.

On the other hand, while President Trump should be credited with opening a possible path to peace on the Korean Peninsula and ending the Korean War, both of those outcomes remain far in the future. As Trump himself has acknowledged, more summits are likely to be necessary. Moreover, as he also made clear, much work needs to be done by subordinates on both sides, with the American team led by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, whose efforts certainly ensured that the president, despite his impulsiveness, committed no forced errors.

The joint communique is full of commitments. The United States commits to security guarantees; North Korea commits to complete denuclearization. Both sides commit to a new relationship and to a "lasting and stable" peace regime. But these commitments beg a major - indeed, fundamental - question: Under what conditions are they to be fulfilled?

Dustin Johnson plays like his former World No. 1 self at FedEx St. Jude Classic, leads by one after second-round 63

  Dustin Johnson plays like his former World No. 1 self at FedEx St. Jude Classic, leads by one after second-round 63 Dustin Johnson plays like his former World No. 1 self at FedEx St. Jude Classic, leads by one after second-round 63."It's never easy, but I feel like I'm playing pretty well," said Johnson, who leads by one at 10-under 130 through 36 holes. "I'm swinging the club very well, I know that if I can drive it in the fairway that I'm going to get myself a good look for birdie. I felt like I did that well pretty much all day today. Hit a lot of great shots in there and had a lot of really great looks at birdies.

Kim , a six-time LPGA Tour winner , was one of 36 players unable to complete the round . Mariah Stackhouse (65), Annie Park (65), Ashleigh Buhai (66) and Su Oh (two holes left) were two strokes back. Stackhouse is trying to become the tour’s first black winner .

2017 NFL Draft: Round one winners & losers. With that said, every draft has it’s winners and it’s losers. Let’s take a closer look at the teams who struck potential gold and also some teams that might have left us scratching our heads.

Would Washington issue security guarantees in the absence of ironclad evidence that Pyongyang is doing away with its entire nuclear program? At the same time, would Kim Jong Un do away with his nuclear weapons program even if he received such guarantees? What if America suffers buyer's remorse and the president (or perhaps the next president) reneges, and Kim finds that he is as vulnerable as was Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, whose fate national security adviser John Bolton has made clear he would happily assign to the North Korean leader?

Moreover, it is still not at all clear what China's role has been in the run-up to the summit. Kim visited Beijing prior to the announcement that he would meet with Trump, and subsequently met with Chinese leader Xi Jinping again before the summit was held in Singapore. What advice, or instructions, did Xi offer to his Korean client? Xi has no interest in a united Korea, which would result in a more powerful, less submissive and perhaps more unruly neighbor than either of the two Koreas. Trump's effective acceptance of a divided Korea therefore must be pleasing Xi nearly as much as it reassures Kim.

Kim promised to dismantle his nation's nuclear complex in systematic fashion. Of course, Pyongyang has made such promises in the past, only to break them. In turn, Trump has promised to halt joint military exercises with South Korea's forces. No previous president has ever issued such a commitment. Moreover, Kim gets what he wants immediately; Trump must wait to see if, when, how, and how quickly the North Koreans terminate their nuclear program.

Kim wants American troops to withdraw from the Korean peninsula; Trump has indicated a readiness to draw down the 27,000 personnel stationed in South Korea and has made it clear that he would prefer to withdraw all troops from that country. If that is the case, it would appear that it would not take much hard bargaining on Kim's part to accelerate an American troop withdrawal.

Combined with an absence of U.S.-South Korean military exercises, and an American guarantee of the Kim regime's survival, Kim will have obtained all that he has sought while America could never be sure that Pyongyang was pursuing its nuclear weapons program in underground military bases that no inspector would be permitted to enter. Indeed, there would be little standing in the way of a North Korean operation against South Korea should it determine that an attack that debilitates the South is a higher priority than a formal peace treaty with the United States.

7-Time 'Jeopardy!' Winner Stephanie Jass Pleads Guilty to Computer Hacking

  7-Time 'Jeopardy!' Winner Stephanie Jass Pleads Guilty to Computer Hacking The Michigan woman hacked the emails of her students and colleagues, authorities said.Stephanie Jass, 48, was accused of sneaking into other people's accounts over a four-day period last year when administrators at Adrian College gave everyone the same temporary password while the system was being worked on.

As for the winner ? " I 'm looking forward to working hard from now on." Kim said he wasn't nervous because of his victory last year in the Wyndham Championship, which gave him a two-year exemption on the PGA Tour.

After both rounds of performances were over, the final winner was determined by the audience. [SPOILERS AHEAD!] Kim Yoo Jung and Jung Chang Wook aka “ Kim Yoo Jung Look -Alike” Team up for a CF.

President Trump and his media allies have asserted that Kim came to the negotiating table "on his knees" due to the ramping up of sanctions against the North. While there may be some truth to that assertion, it is unlikely to be the entire story; North Koreans are long suffering while the regime, like others of its kind in the past, in all likelihood has hardly been touched by the new sanctions.

The current understanding between Kim and Trump may not be a complete American giveaway either, as some critics are asserting. Yet, as the joint communiqué makes abundantly clear, Trump has yielded far more than he will ever acknowledge. The self-proclaimed master of the art of the deal may have concluded in the first few minutes of his meeting with Kim that the outcome would be successful. What is less obvious is who actually came away with the greater success. On its face, it was not President Trump.
