James Clapper

By Calvin Woodward
Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — When U.S. spy chief James Clapper flew to North Korea on a mission to bring home two U.S. captives, he ran into a potential hitch. North Korean officials wanted a diplomatic concession of some sort in return for freeing the men and Clapper had none to offer.

“I think they were disappointed,” Clapper said, fleshing out details of the secret trip a week after its completion.

It was not until he was ushered into a hotel room for an “amnesty-granting ceremony” that he knew the release of Americans Kenneth Bae and Matthew Miller would proceed as planned. Read the full story

ASTROLOGY: For the week of November 22 – November 28, 2014

ASTROLOGY: For the week of November 22 – November 28, 2014

By Sun Lee Chang
Northwest Asian Weekly

Rat —  If you are lucky enough to be offered a second bite of the apple, then don’t squander that opportunity.

Ox —  As you unravel the riddle, you will find a few puzzling layers at the beginning. However, your persistence should pay off.

Tiger — Are you trying to force two pieces together that just don’t fit? Stop what you are doing as there is an easier way.

 

Rabbit — While the content is important, the presentation should not be ignored. At their best, both should enhance the other.

Dragon — There is no doubting that you have a good grasp of the details, but a strong leader also knows how to delegate some of the tasks.

Snake — Avoid judging others too harshly for an innocent mistake. There will come a time when you may appreciate that leeway.

Horse — Despite the image you present to the outside world, there are some things that you would rather keep to yourself.

Goat —  As you go further along your journey, the harder it becomes to justify turning back. At the end of the day, it might still make sense to start over.

Monkey — Feeling less than enthused for the occasion? It will be what you make of it, so go forward with a positive attitude.

Rooster — Does it seem like you are going around and around with the same result? If that is the case, try doing something different this time.

Dog — This is not the time to start another project. Instead, you would be better served finishing what you have already started.

Pig — Your rules don’t necessarily translate to someone else. While your way works for you, that doesn’t mean it applies to everyone.

What’s your animal sign?
