FROM Jack Horner
Is the World Ready for a "Dino-chicken?" We all know the story behind Jurassic World , where genetically engineered dinosaurs run wild. One descendent of dinosaurs is the chicken — and last month, researchers announced that they had modified part a chicken to look like part of a dinosaur. That was welcome news to Jack Horner. A paleontologist at Montana State University, he's been a consultant to the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World movies. He's looking forward to a complete " dino-chicken ."

The Trump Administration says it has lost its "strategic patience." We hear what that might -- or might not -- mean for North Korea, China and the prospects for diplomacy.
