Fierce winds are taking their toll on the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, leading to postponements of competition and difficult conditions for some events that are continuing as scheduled.
In barely a month since North Korean leader Kim Jong Un surprised the world and said his nation was ready to join the Games, South Korean President Moon Jae-in has delayed military exercises, feted Kim's sister at the Pyeongchang Olympics and given conditional consent to a bilateral summit in the North.
But in an interview in the Washington Post on Sunday, Pence said he and Moon had agreed on terms for more diplomatic engagement with North Korea, first with Seoul and then possibly leading to direct talks with Washington without pre-conditions. "And it also is a signal that North Korea is not this crazy, weird former Cold War state - but it too has young women that are capable and are the future leadership".
A company spokeswoman confirmed to USA TODAY that it had to scrap the live show, but did not respond to a request for a more detailed explanation of what caused the last-minute challenges.
"The Opening Ceremony was a terrific show, which we hope will only be topped by the excitement generated by the athletes and competition over the next few weeks", said Mark Lazarus, Chairman of NBC Broadcasting and Sports.
The North, he said, has nothing to lose with its Olympic gambit.
"They learned that winning is not everything and that you can get more cheers for trying to overcome differences", Park said. At the 2010 Vancouver Games, the first two Alpine races were postponed because of rain and - get this - too-warm temperatures in the 40s (below 10 Celsius).
We have to add, of course, there is no way of knowing whether the athletes in question are still using the app.
Americans and Canadians coming from the NHL, or even the American Hockey League or Kontinental Hockey League, assimilated into the culture and didn't want to offend their Korean-born teammates.
"There's a lot of hype about 5G as a revolution, but most people here don't even know how their smartphones work", Han said.
Stina Nilsson of Sweden won the women's cross-country sprint.
Japanese short-track speedskater Kei Saito tested positive for the banned diuretic Acetalozamide in the first doping case of the Pyeongchang Games.
Pence cast one of the loneliest figures at the opening event.
The unified team is made up of 23 Southern players and 12 Northerners, with at least three from the North required to be on the starting roster of 22. Intel told Wired that it needed to use an actual snowboarded in position to ensure the drones were properly configured to resemble the athlete in the sky. On Friday the pair met with North Korean defectors including Ji Seong-ho. He called Fred Warmbier "a great champion" for the freedom of the people in North Korea.
Meanwhile, Kim Jong Un has sent his sister to attend the Games. Bryzgalova was shuffling backward in the third end when she stumbled over a stone and had her legs fly out from under her and she crashed hard onto her backside.
Born in 1987, she studied in Switzerland, like Kim Jong Un, and is believed to have attended Kim Il Sung University and a European school for her higher education. Kim Jong Un and Kim Yo Jong have the same mother, Ko Yong Hui.
After all the politics, Pyeongchang may soon be able to return its focus to - what is everyone here for again? - the sports.
The government "has taken what it thought necessary and minimum measures to make sure of a successful hosting of the Games", foreign ministry spokesman Noh Kyu-duk said Thursday.
