“I think Kim is playing the president,” Meeks said. “He played him in the first summit. He played him at the second summit.

Scientists said Wednesday they have come up with an environmentally-friendly method that uses artificial sunlight to transform plastic into power-generating chemicals, as countries worldwide battle to reduce waste.
