North Korean Cheerleaders: 100 Olympic Stars Are Born

PyeongChang is 14 hours ahead of Toronto meaning you may need to wake up early or stay up quite late to catch your favourite events

The rhetoric war between North Korea and the Trump administration hasn't skipped a beat in Pyeongchang.

Dark chocolate tempered in the shape of barbed wire lay over a map of the Korean peninsula rendered in thin blue chocolate, a representation of the heavily militarized border that separates Games host South Korea and its old enemy in the North.

Critics - among them US Vice President Mike Pence and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe - warn of a charm offensive by Pyongyang, which mounted a military parade on Thursday in a show of strength.

Korean goalie Shin So-jung was busy against Switzerland, facing 52 shots while Swiss goalie Florence Schelling only saw eight.

The resilient Koreans refused to cave in till the last minute of the game, but their poor defense and inexperience cost them too much.

Sask. tied for 2nd lowest unemployment rate in Canada
That means there was 3.4 per cent or 46,100 fewer part-time posts in January 2018 than the same time the previous year. Ontario had the biggest jobs decline among the provinces, shedding 50,900 positions on a drop in part-time work.

But in their meeting Saturday, the South Korean president also asked North Korea to be amenable to talks with the United States, telling Kim Yo Jong that it was "urgent" for Pyongyang and Washington to start resolving their differences.

Moon had already shaken hands with Kim Yo Jongand Kim Yong Nam at the Winter Olympics opening ceremony on Friday in Pyeongchang.

The North Koreans earlier Saturday invited Moon to visit Pyongyang in what would be the Koreas' third summit talks since their 1945 division.

Local media in South Korea initially reported that the technical disruptions were caused by some sort of cyberattack, but Olympic Games spokesman Sung Baik-you said there is no such evidence of such activity, at least not yet. She did have the unpleasant task of telling some of her players that they wouldn't be dressing because of three North Koreans are mandated to dress for each game.

American skaters Lana Gehring and Maame Biney enjoyed the presence of the North Korean supporters. "The Olympic Games is a symbol of how things might be in the world".

German SPD leader gives up bid for foreign minister in new gov't
Tensions are also reported between him and Sigmar Gabriel , an SPD colleague who is now foreign minister. And in Berlin they demanded that Germany return to the European Union leadership position.

Athletes from both countries walked on stage under a unified Korean flag, but in the audience an even more significant exchange took place.

Moon has been pressing the North to engage with the United States to de-escalate tensions between the countries, which have been fueled by a string of nuclear tests that were met with strong rhetoric from President Donald Trump.

Pence, who is leading the United States delegation to the Olympics, briefly encountered Kim Yong-nam at the Games but the two tried to avoid directly facing each other.

At the age of 30, Kim Yo Jong is quite possibly the most powerful woman in North Korea. A Blue House official initially said the president had accepted Kim's offer, but that was later denied by chief spokesman Yoon Young-chan. International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach called it "a very emotional moment", one that gave him "goosebumps".

North Korea continues to defy increasingly tough sanctions, and states at every opportunity that its nuclear weapons program is nonnegotiable.
