Some Practical Concepts For Level-headed Tactics
Korea 01:10 The South Korean President has been invited to travel to North Korea, following a formal invitation from the country's leader, Kim Jong Un, potentially setting up the first meeting of Korean leaders since 2007. The invite, presented to South Korean President Moon Jae-in by Kim's younger sister, Kim Yo Jong, was delivered during a historic meeting between North and South Korean officials at Seoul's presidential palace Saturday, presidential spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom said. Saturday's meeting, the most significant diplomatic encounter between the two sides in more than a decade, could now be surpassed should Moon accept Kim's invitation to visit Pyongyang later this year. Moon responded to the invitation by suggesting the two countries "should accomplish this by creating the right conditions," adding that talks between North Korea and the United States were also needed, and requested that North Korea be more active in talking with the US, according to Kim Eui-kyeom. Images from the lunch meeting at the Blue House, which was broadcast live on South Korean TV, showed Moon sat in front of Kim Yo Jong, rather than Kim Yong Nam, technically the more senior official present in the meeting and head of the North Korean delegation.

The younger Kim's trip to the South marks the first time that a member of the North's ruling dynasty has visited since the Korean War, which ended in an armistice in 1953. Analysts noted that Kim Yo Jong was shown holding a blue folder adorned with a gold seal, which she later placed in front of her on the table, leading to speculation in South Korean media that it could contain a personal letter from her brother to the South Korean President. Such a high-level meeting would have been unthinkable even a few months ago, but 2018 has seen an accelerated rapprochement between the two adversaries in the run-up to the Games. Moon has expressed his intention to use the Winter Olympics as a chance to make diplomatic inroads with the North and restore normalized communications, following months of high tensions on the Peninsula.

With one step, Kim Jong Un just made history 02:35 First, they embraced. Then South Korean President Moon Jae-in and his North Korean counterpart, Kim Jong Un, last month planted a tree and talked alone before committing their countries to denuclearization and further talks to bring a formal end to their conflict. At the stroke of midnight in Seoul on Saturday (11 a.m. ET Friday), the goodwill continued, with North Korea adjusting its clocks 30 minutes forward to be in the same time zone as its southern neighbor. North Korean state news agency KCNA called the moment "the first practical step taken after the historic third north-south summit meeting to speed up the process for the north and the south to become one." The time change was ordered by decree of the Supreme People's Assembly, the news agency reported. What North Koreans think about the US now 02:49 Another sign of the rapprochement will come next week, when a team from the UN's International Civil Aviation Organization will travel to North Korea to discuss a proposal to start an air route between the Pyongyang and Incheon, South Korea, airspace regions, according to Anthony Philbin, the agency's communications chief. South Korean aviation officials are still weighing the proposal, which was requested by North Korea in February, Philbin said. ICAO Asia and Pacific Regional Director Arun Mishra will travel to North Korea with the director of the agency's air navigation bureau, Stephen Creamer, to open discussion on air navigation and safety issues.

Tips For Traveling In A First Class Way
Traveling is a journey; you never know what will happen. Make sure that you are prepared before you go. The following tidbits of info will help you plan a fun and memorable trip.
Don't use public computers for looking at sensitive information. Keyloggers can steal this information from you.
Always plan ahead when traveling by air. The trip to the airport requires that you give ample time to deal with traffic, rush hour conditions and other unexpected delays. You should have all of your luggage packed up and ready to go on the evening before you leave for your trip. Prepare yourself well before the flight. Nothing is worse than missing your flight.
In order to keep your trip price down, you should book it far ahead of schedule. Regardless of what your vacation costs, you usually get a better price if you pay early. If you don't shop at the last minute, you can extend your travel much more.
When putting a trip together, choose the right digital camera for the particulars of your trip. If you are going backpacking, you shouldn't have one with a rechargeable battery. You also want to pick out something that will focus almost immediately.
If you are traveling to a small airport, do some research on which carriers use it. Charter airlines often operate out of smaller airports; their rates, which may be cheaper than those of the bigger airlines, do not always appear when you do a rate search.
Do some solid research before booking your trip. Find websites that contain reviews of potential destinations. Try asking people you know that have traveled there. Doing the research yourself will help you know what to expect, as well as help you choose what you really want to do when you get to your destination.
First thing to do when you get into your hotel room is to check the alarm clock. The alarm clock may be set to go off in the dead of the night or at the crack of dawn either due to the last guest's plans or as a prank. To get your vacation off on the right foot, be sure that the alarm is either turned off or set to the proper time.
Give a trusted family member or friend access to the itinerary you will be following while you travel. This allows a relative at home to know where you are at any point in time. For the sake of your safety, always keep in touch with this person too. As long as they receive regular contact from you, they will not worry.
If one has their motorcycle license, a motorcycle can be a good means of travel for road trips or day trips. Motorcycles offer a fun way to enjoy a scenic ride without using a ton of gas. It's exciting to travel by motorcycle.
If you're traveling on the road with children, bring a cookie sheet or two. These cookie sheets can be a flat surface to put cards or coloring books on. If you have little ones, you can bring magnetic letters and numbers for educational fun.
Cash in your traveler's checks before shopping or dining. Even though many places do accept these checks, often times it can be a complicated mess. You could get shorted by using them, so be safe and get local currency.
Make sure you get the latest e-newsletters of the airlines you use. These e-newsletters will give you access to last-minute offers, special discounts and other deals that may not be available to anyone else. Once you have planned your vacation, you can unsubscribe from these newsletters.
While this advice will help you reduce stress, there are no vacations that happen without any hiccups at all. The best wisdom you can employ is too just travel with ease and roll with the punches.
