U.S. and North Korean officials are meeting Wednesday in Beijing to settle the details of a plan to allow the resumption of food aid to the North.
The talks take place against a backdrop of bellicose images and rhetoric from Pyongyang. North Korean television this week aired footage of a military unit carrying out live fire-drills in-sight of a South Korean Island.
Robert King, the U.S. special envoy for North Korean human rights issues, is holding talks with representatives from Pyongyang on Wednesday to “finalize all of the technical arrangements so that the nutritional assistance can begin to move,” according to the U.S. State Department.
North Korea last week announced an agreement to freeze its nuclear and missile tests, along with uranium enrichment programs, and allow the return of U.N. nuclear inspectors. The United States said it would provide 240,000 metric tons of nutritional assistance to the impoverished country.
The United States had suspended shipments of food aid to North Korea in 2009 amid tensions over Pyongyang’s nuclear program and concerns that the supplies were not reaching those most in need.
The deal last week to resume the deliveries came after the the two countries revived negotiations that had stalled after the death in December of the longtime North Korean leader Kim Jong Il.
Wearing a toga is a usual scene during graduation. But in some cases casual attire is observed. If I am asked of my opinion, I would rather say that I have a positive prescription on this matter due to the fact that it is a remarkable moment of my life.
It is exciting because it marks my accomplishment in a certain phase of my struggle and move on to another stage of my vision to face further challenges of education. This awesome period really deserves an elegant attire, not fashionable but meaningful.
To wear a toga implicates the real meaning of my sacrifices yet memorable and challenging events of my endeavor. To think of it, I will bear more courage and fortitude.
My opinion is, TOGA is the best attire for a graduate.
When asked last Thursday by Leonard Dela Torre on how she can convince students in avoiding drugs and committing crimes, NYMP’s vice-presidentiable says “YES TO SPORTS”.
“When adolescents are into physical activities, of course they will give all their time to it. Through this, they can avoid engaging into drugs and committing crimes.”
The last sports-related program that the SSG implemented was the project CLEAR in SY 2009-2010. Unfortunately, the participation rate of the students rapidly decreased through the months.
“If our school only have the money to buy enough sports facilities, I think students will be more encouraged to stay here and study.”
The school’s SSG COMELEC and PRESS Club hosted this year’s most anticipated school government affair next to the SSG Election, the Miting De Avance.
The said event was hosted by Commisioner Jaymega Paradero and Ang Simoy’s Editor in Chief, Jaffie Lu Morales both students of III-A.

It was then followed by Leonard dela Torre’s (IV-A) interview with the candidates for the Vice-President position, NYMP’s Vhaleree Selorio (III-A) and CLICKERS’ Catherine Brizo (II-SSC).
