U.S. negotiators have faced stiff resistance from their North Korean counterparts despite the president’s declaration that the crisis had been “largely solved.”

Diplomats say the North Koreans have canceled follow-up meetings, demanded more money and failed to maintain basic communications, even as the once-isolated regime’s engagements with China and South Korea flourish.

Masses Of Seaweed Threaten Fisheries And Foul Beaches

If you’ve been to a beach this summer, anywhere from Texas to the Carolinas, you’ve likely seen it. Masses of brown seaweed, sometimes a few clumps, often big mounds, line the shore. It’s sargassum, a floating weed that’s clogging bays and piling up on beaches in the Gulf and Caribbean.

BUSTED: High End Russian Hooker Ring Run From Miami Trump Property

At first blush, it just looks like the bust of another Russian human trafficking operation, run by a husband-and-wife team with two kids and a pricey Miami condo.

And then you look a little closer and it’s a Manhattan Russian criminal enterprise run remotely from Trump Tower III in Miami.

The husband and wife team, Yevgen Rizanov and Ksenia Khodukina, both 29, flew women from Russia to New York as part of a “sophisticated long-term operation promoting prostitution,” according to New York Assistant District Attorney James Lynch.

Manhattan prosecutors also allege that the couple and a third defendant, Arkadiy Bashkatov, housed the sex workers in Brooklyn and dispatched them on jobs throughout New York, booking their hotels and hiring drivers, from June 2015 to June 2018.

Older article but still relevant today! I was just talking to my spouse about this when we were out walking in an area with a lot of walkers/joggers. Pay attention to who moves first.

In early November of last year, 25-year-old labor organizer Beth Breslaw decided to confront male entitlement one sidewalk stranger at a time. She was inspired by a friend’s experience: Having heard that men were less likely than their female counterparts to make room on a crowded sidewalk, this friend wanted to test the theory herself while commuting to and from her job in the Financial District. From then on, she spent every day getting repeatedly body-checked.

“She would get on the train and have nowhere to sit because men were all spread out on the seats,” Breslaw told me with a laugh. “Then she’d get off the train and have nowhere to walk because men don’t get out of the way.”

Amazon Prime Day

Epic Fail! 50 minutes into Prime Day and the website is still down. Jeff Bezos must be about to explode.

Amazon, I would love to shop all deals and spend my money but can’t get past this!

We all know how Trump hates Amazon, maybe he asked his buddy Vlad to do a little hacking. Wouldn’t surprise me.

Your wow photo of the day.

A 100-metre (330ft) high iceberg has drifted close to a tiny settlement on Greenland’s west coast, prompting fears of a tsunami if it breaks up.

Authorities have told residents of the Innaarsuit island settlement living near the shore to move to higher ground.
