I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support

  of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump — I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough — until

they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad,” Trump told the conservative website.

  Trump’s incessant appeals for his base are undeniably effective.

  One Republican, Sen. Thom Tillis, of North Carolina, made an 11th

hour switch of his vote on the declaration of national emergency, falling into line behind the President.

  A top GOP official in North Carolina told CNN’s Jim Acosta that

Tillis was under fierce pressure ahead of a potential primary challenge next year.

  The official said, Tillis is “getting hit hard in the state.”

It wasn’t quite a George Clooney or Brad Pitt heist, but police say a brazen robbery attempt ended with gunfire and the suspect hospitalized in Las Vegas.

About 9:45 p.m. local time Friday, an armed man entered a packed Bell

agio Hotel and Casino and demanded money from a caged poker area, Las Vegas Met

ropolitan Police Capt. Nichole Splinter said.
He then fled and tried to steal a vehicle that ha

d just pulled into the valet lot, but he was immediately confronted by four police officers, Splinter said.

Nebraska has experienced historic flooding and extreme weat

  Nebraska rescue teams have been pulling trapped residents out of flood waters since Thursday.

  James Wilke, a Columbus farmer, got a call to assist a stranger, and never came home. Acco

rding to CNN affiliate KMTV, a close family friend posted on social media about his last moments.

  ”It is no surprise to anyone that knew James that when he got the phone call to assist eme

rgency responders … his answers would be yes,” Jodi L. Hefti wrote on Facebook.

  ”With the guidance of emergency responders, James drove his tractor over the Shell Cree

k bridge on the Monestary Road and the bridge gave out. James and the tractor went down into the flood water below.”

  CNN affiliates KOLN and KGIN reported the Nebraska Emergency Management Agenc

y confirmed a flood-related fatality in Platte County. The mayor of Columbus also told the affiliate sta

tions that person was a farmer on a tractor out to rescue someone from the flood waters.

Trump also, as he often does, used his position to slyly sh

  out out one of his businesses, in this case, a golf course in Ireland.

  ”I have a very warm spot for Doonbeg, I will tell you that and it just a great place really.”

  While praising Ireland, Trump promptly switched to a characteristic boast about his own

success, his management of the economy and how he held “all of the records … every single record for the stock market.”

  Trump’s obsession with Obama — a defining characteristic — appeared like a nerv

ous tick twice in his photo-op, twinned with a willingness to spout untruths.

  First, he claimed that the former President had predicted in 2016 that British vote

rs would reject leaving the European Union in a referendum while he had predicted they would vote to exit the bloc.

  Obama did not bet on the outcome. But he did however warn Britons they would go “to the back of the queue” for a trade deal with the US if they left the EU.

North Korea says it may suspend nuclear talksorth Korea is conside

  North Korea is considering suspension of denuclearization talks with the United States, Deputy Foreign

Minister Choe Son Hui told reporters on Friday.

  ”We have no intention to yield to the US demands [put forward at the Hanoi summit] in any form, nor are we willing to engage in neg

otiations of this kind,” said Choe, according to Russian state news agency TASS, which attended the press event in Pyongyang.

  Choe said the North was deeply disappointed by the failure of the two sides to reach any agreements at last m

onth’s summit between Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi.

  She blamed the breakdown of talks on the US side, saying the Am

erican delegation was being too demanding and inflexible: [The US] “were too busy with pu

rsuing their own political interests and had no sincere intention to achieve a result,” Choe added, according to TASS.

  However, US National Security Advisor John Bolton disputed Choe’s characterization of the breakdown of talks

as “inaccurate” and said he had discussed the reports from North Korea with his South Korean counterparts.

We don’t know” what Kim will decide to do in the future and

  that any decision to resume such testing may “very much be his decision, and his decision alone,” Biegun said. He also noted that Trump has “made clear” how disap

pointed he would be if testing resumed. A senior US defense official told CNN Monday that the commercial sate

llite imagery doesn’t show anything that raises imminent alarm for the US at this time.

  North Korea acknowledged for the first time last Friday that the Hanoi summit ended “unexp

ectedly without an agreement.” Despite previously painting the Trump-Kim summit in Vietnam in a posi

tive light, state news agency KCNA said the meeting hadn’t gone as well as expected.

  The US had hoped the summit would demonstrate the success of Trump’s diplomatic gamble with North Korea, but instead

the meeting ended with no joint agreement, after Kim demanded all US sanctions be lifted on his country.

  ”Sometimes you have to walk,” Trump said during a news conference followin

g the conclusion of the talks, which broke up earlier than planned. “This was just one of those times.”

  CNN’s Jamie Crawford and Barbara Starr contributed to this report.

This generation has grown up in an era when China

has made tremendous economic achievements, and they have enjoyed affluent material conditions since childho

od. So they set higher standards for life and ask for better quality and unique experiences,” Tang said.

“Compared with the older generation, they are more willing to pay for conveni

ence, entertainment, mental stimulation, companionship and education that will benefit their future careers.”

George Ren, a senior partner with global consultancy Roland Berger, said many companies have star

ted to respond to this demographic shift in recent years, as they have seen great potential in the singles’ economy.

“They have made products of smaller size, in smaller packages or with more divided functions. They have also deve

loped unique and personalized services to cater to the diversified demands from single people,” he said.

Tang said, “Chinese food is quite complicated to mak

so single people think it is a waste of time compared with ordering takeout,” adding that on major food

delivery platform Meituan-Dianping, about 65 percent of the orders are made by singles ages 20 to 30.

Others choose to dine out. A recent report by global market research company Kantar Worldpanel found that 46 percent of interviewees said they had eaten

alone in the past 24 hours, up by 9 percent from 2017. Some 16 percent of respondents said they preferred to eat out alone.

Liu Chang, 24, a postgraduate at Renmin University of China in Beijing, said she likes to ex

perience celebrity restaurants recommended by food review platforms. She has visited them alone many times.

“Finding friends you like to dine with can be difficult sometimes. In view of this, I would rath

er eat alone, which can also be enjoyable and relaxing, as I can do whatever I like,” she said.

Luan Shengjun, founder of the restaurant chain Kum

Canteen, which specializes in Japanese food, said that in each of its outlets about 10 seats are spec

ially designed for solo diners, where they can watch chefs making sushi and sashimi at close hand. The r

estaurants also offer small-sized portions of classic dishes so that solo diners can taste a variety of food.

“If solo customers feel like talking, we encourage our chefs to respond enthusiastically. For example, they intro

duce customers to the process of making food and sometimes even have a drink with them,” he said.

Chinese singles, many of whom are well-educated and financially independent, also like traveling alone.

Figures from travel service provider Tuniu.com show that solo travel h

as become increasingly popular with those born in the 1990s. Last year, the number of pe

ople born in that decade who traveled alone rose by 10 percent compared with 2017.

His remarks came after Richard Grenell, US ambassad

or to Germany, explicitly warned in a letter to German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier date

d Friday that the country faces consequences if Huawei participates in its 5G infrastructure.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Grenell wrote that allowing

the participation of Huawei or other Chinese equipment vendors in the 5G project woul

d mean the US won’t be able to maintain the same level of cooperation with German security agencies.

Lu said that some people in the US should not count on any other country catering

to Washington’s self interest or political calculations by sacrificing their own reasonable development rights and interests.

According to Reuters, Altmaier said earlier that Germany did not want to ban Huawei, b

ut would change its laws to ensure all components used in the 5G networks are secure.

Scientists discovered the possible presence of krill bree

ding grounds around Peter I Island in the Amundsen Sea area. The distribution of phytoplankton in the eastern Amundsen Sea a

rea was preliminarily proved through the first application of a trace metal sampling method developed by China.

At Changcheng station, scientists conducted ecological environment monitoring, glacier

monitoring and regular meteorological observation projects. Seismic stations there have bee

n upgraded, and a radar sea-level observation system has been constructed, the administration said.

Nearly 200 kilograms of samples of soil, water, animal and plant spec

imens and other materials, were collected at Changcheng station. Scientists also estab

lished the country’s first polar region sodium fluorescence laser Doppler radar room at Zhongshan sta

tion. During its trial run, about 51 hours of valid data and 2.5 GB of original data were collected.
