(Newser) – Dennis Rodman is continuing his habit of yakking about Kim Jong Un, revealing yet more details about the North Korean dictator's daughter. The former NBA star, who wrapped up his second visit to Pyongyang over the weekend, says he held the baby and her name is Ju-ae. Kim's wife Ri Sol Ju was rumored to be pregnant when she disappeared from public view last year, and Rodman has already discussed the child once before, but the regime never announced the birth, Reuters notes. Kim, Rodman adds, is an "awesome guy" and a "good dad" with a "beautiful family."

Rodman—whose visit was sponsored by an Irish betting firm—says he is working on plans for a US-North Korea basketball game and he will see Kim again later this year. "The Marshal Kim and I had a relaxing time by the sea with his family," he tells the Guardian. "We shared many meals and drinks where we discussed our plans to play a historic friendship basketball game between North Korea and the US as well as ways to develop their basketball team."

Roosevelt was the mediator of the settlement and got the Nobel Prize for it. I have written the North through fax channels (so my suggestion would be intercepted by all intelligence services).

(R) 2016 Gov. RICK PERRY Report: PART III: The Kaesong Factory Park Reopening - About the Texan <-> North Korean Academic Exchange-program of Artificial Intelligence Research & Development on Ada CPU micro-chip circuit. Our PART I and PART II were to recruit the Ada Syntax programming engineers and IBM 370 (32-bit) / TMS 9900 (16-bit) Assembly Language, Machine Codes / Object Codes engineers, writing the "Ada Language Interpreter" and "Ada Tasks", using Digital Physics to build a Real-Time Clock, ROM (Read Only Memory), PROM (Programmable Read Only Memory), 64K computer memory, all sockets to interface the Ada CPU microprocessor's "Pin(s)" to the Parallel Computing. The PART III, we like to discuss with the engineers about to build the Ada CPU circuit of Subprogram, Package, Generic Unit, many worrisome Floating of the ill-conditioned calculation such as IBM 360/370 value divided by 0 (zero) error occurred. We try to avoid this situation of Ada CPU when it used in Space program or other applications; therefore, we will write a "Gauss-Seidel Iterative Method" Ada Subprogram, Ada Package to build an extension of Matrix circuit on the Ada Floating unit.
