Vietnam Summit

Less than a month ago, the 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump, and the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un, met for a second time to discuss economic sanctions and nuclear weapons. The first time the two met, they met in Singapore. This time, the pair traveled to the capital of Vietnam, Hanoi, to talk. Trump is the first American president to meet a North Korean head of state.

The first time the two talked was on June 12, in the summer of 2018. They met in Singapore and discussed North Korea’s nuclear program. Trump said the talks went well and there has been less tension, but there has yet to be any real progress.

The summit started at 6:30PM Vietnam time, which is exactly 12 hours ahead of East Coast time. The next morning, at 9:00AM, Trump and Kim met privately to talk.

After their private meeting was done, the two went to a large meeting with several top aides from each country. This meeting carried into a working lunch that featured the same people as the meeting.

At around 2PM, Trump and Kim signed an agreement. After the signing, a press conference was held that both leaders attended. The two then separated until 7PM, when they met again for a formal dinner.

The results of the summit weren’t what Trump claimed they were, but they weren’t nothing. Trump claimed North Korea would be fully denuclearized, which they are not, but the tensions have eased and North Korea and the US are no longer threatening war.

North Korea also released American hostages ahead of the summit, which is good, and the US has promised to stop “provocative” military drills with South Korea.

North Korea also promised to start to denuclearize, but they could go back on that at any time. The results weren’t massive but they were a start.

‘Frozen 2’ trailer

Frozen 2’s trailer has officially been released, and many people are hyped up and excited for the movie. The movie is planned to be released on November 22nd, of this year. There were many aspects within the trailer that captured people’s attention.

One of the aspects was the beginning scene, with the waves. Everyone is shocked about how the waves looked so real, even the whole setting of the shore looks real.

Another aspect is that none of the characters speak. The whole trailer was just full of action and movement. Along with that, there seems to be two new faces in the trailer that brings even more excitement.

People have also noticed that during the end of the trailer, where the title, Frozen 2, shows up, it is not exactly fully frozen. There are leaves flying through and the bottom part of the title which seems to be melted. Many people have come up with theories on what might be happening, but no one really knows yet.

Since the trailer to Frozen 2 has caused an uproar of excitement, I decided to ask some of my friends, who had, and hadn’t watched, Frozen 1, their opinions of trailer.

Robbie Garcia: They didn’t even talk in the trailer, I don’t think Frozen 2 has anything to do with Frozen 1 because they didn’t even say anything; it’s just all action. I’m really looking forward to the sisterhood bond and the powers. What captured my attention in the trailer was the beginning scene with the waves. The way they animated it was just amazing, it looked so real.

Tovi Yangh: It’s different from the first trailer; it’s a bit more serious and suspenseful with the second trailer. I feel like the suspense makes Frozen 2 even more exciting than when Frozen 1 was announced. Along with that, we can see that Elsa, Anna, and Kristoff are going on an adventure that might or might not be in Arendale.

Xeng Thao: I went to watch Frozen 1 in theatres so I’m planning to watch Frozen 2 in theatres too. When I watched the trailer to Frozen 2, I felt like I had to do more research on theories of Frozen because it’s very different. I would’ve preferred if the characters actually talked in the trailer or showed a snippet of any songs they’re planning for.

Chai Her: I should probably try to watch Frozen 1 before Frozen 2. After watching the trailer to Frozen 2, I had no idea what was happening, and have no idea what to expect. The trailer fascinated me. I’m hoping that when I do decide to watch Frozen 1, it’ll be as good as everyone says.

Mahmoud Ahmed: I’ve only heard a few of the songs, but watching the movie never came into my mind. The trailer for Frozen 2 did make me want to watch Frozen 1 so I could tell what to expect. I think that the trailer was really well done, especially with the water in the beginning.

Thomas Nguyen: The trailer made the whole movie stand out even if it’s not out yet. I hope I’ll like the Olaf character as much as other people do. I want to be able to feel the same excitement others are feeling for Frozen 2.
