    North Korea's Kim guides military drills, warns 'serious consequences' if virus breaks out: KCNA

    North Korean leader Kim Jong Un oversaw military drills on Friday, state media KCNA said on Saturday, a rare public outing amid efforts to prevent an outbreak of the coronavirus in the isolated country. North Korea has not confirmed any cases of the virus, but state media said a month-long quarantine period had been imposed for people showing symptoms and "high-intensity" measures were taken including reinforcing checks in border regions and at airports and sea ports. On Feb. 16, Kim made his first public appearance in 22 days to visit a mausoleum marking the anniversary of the birth of his father and late leader Kim Jong Il.

    This is not normal, and the market is clearly indicating to us a change,” Lee said in a research report on Friday.

    Trump hadn't slept for at least 'a day and a half' before his coronavirus press conference, Mick Mulvaney says

    You'd think President Trump was being haunted by Freddy Krueger based on his sleep habits as described by acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney. Mulvaney while speaking at Friday's Conservative Political Action Conference declared that the president basically "never sleeps," having apparently barely done so before addressing the nation about the coronavirus crisis earlier this week. "He flew to India, did a day and a half of work, flew back, did not sleep on the flight home, and I know that because he's emailing and texting and taking phone calls," Mulvaney said. Trump arrived back in the U.S. on an 18-hour return trip from India, during which Mulvaney claims he got no sleep whatsoever, early on Wednesday morning, proceeding to deliver a press conference about 12 hours later running on what Mulvaney described to be at least "a day and a half" without sleep. Although Mulvaney chalked up Trump's wacky sleep schedule to his desire to get the most out of his time in office, Trump seemingly didn't get a whole lot of sleep even as a private citizen. In his 2004 book Think Like a Billionaire, he wrote that he sleeps "about four hours per night," urging readers not to "sleep any more than you have to."

    Woman finds out her 'Tiffany' engagement ring actually cost $6

    A woman’s “perfect” proposal quickly went downhill after a discovery about her engagement ring sparked a series of lies from her fiancé. The proposal began when the woman got engaged on Christmas day. Her ring came inside a Tiffany and Co. box, but was just a bit too big, so the woman went to get it resized at one of the brand’s stores. The manager of the store told the woman it wasn't a Tiffany and Co. ring, showing her there was no engraving on the inside. the ring was fake, which the woman believed was probably the result of her fiancé getting scammed. she asked him where he bought the ring. He responded that he’d bought it at a specific Tiffany and Co. location, but she revealed her issue at the store. The woman's fiance flipped out, accusing her of checking up on him. He told her the Tiffany's employees were wrong and he had gotten it there. days later after snooping through the search history on her fiancé’s iPad, she’d found the actual ring he ordered — on Amazon for about $6. she confronted her fiancé again — this time over the phone — saying that she didn’t care about the ring’s price but was “devastated by the lies”. Her fiancé confessed, revealing that he borrowed the box from his friend, who had proposed with a Tiffany ring a few years prior. the woman hung up and texted him that she needed some space and time, and that she was going to go stay at a hotel to just chill for a day. Posting the experience on Reddit, users urged the woman to “Hold out for your real diamond and your real love.”
