President Donald Trump gave the commencement speech Friday for the 2018 graduates of the United States Naval Academy on Friday, telling them to dream big and reflecting on America's place in the world under his presidency.
A day earlier, Trump highlighted American military preparedness as he canceled a planned summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
At the commencement speech in Annapolis Friday, he said there can be no losing in a fight, should the U.S. get into one.
"If a fight must come, there is no other alternative: victory, winning. Beautiful words, but that's what it's all about," Trump said.
It happens more quickly than you might think.
On a hot summer day, temperatures inside a car parked in the sun can reach 160 degrees in an hour, according to a new study.
And one hour is about how long it can take for a child inside that car to suffer a heat stroke or even die from hyperthermia, experts say, issuing a dire warning as summer approaches.
According to the National Safety Council, an average of 37 kids die in hot cars every year in the U.S. The agency says incidents tend to peak between Memorial Day and Labor Day, when between two to three kids die each week.

An Echo device in the home of a Portland family recorded a conversation, which it then sent to a random person on their contact list, CNBC reported.
A report from Seattle TV network KIRO7 said the family was alerted by a colleague in Seattle who had received the audio file of their conversation.
After confirming the audio file was indeed a recording of their private conversation, the family unplugged all of their Alexa-powered devices, the report said.
In a statement to CNBC, Amazon blamed the incident on Alexa misinterpreting background conversation as a set of commands.
"As unlikely as this string of events is, we are evaluating options to make this case even less likely," the company's statement says.

After inflating a bubble of expectation for a historic summit with North Korea, President Donald Trump popped it.
His withdrawal from a hastily arranged summit with Kim Jong Un drew strong criticism and some praise in Washington.
Trump opponents said he botched a delicate, diplomatic dance with North Korea, at the risk of fueling tensions, cold-shouldering allies like South Korea and making China less willing to put economic pressure on Pyongyang.

When North Korea slammed U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and national security adviser John Bolton, its language was very blunt and impolite. But it was milder than its typical crude and inflammatory insults unleased on other top U.S. and South Korean officials.
The North likely had just tried to strengthen its positions amid negotiations on how many concessions it could wrest from the United States in return for giving up its nuclear program.
But its calling Pence a "political dummy" was still strong enough for President Donald Trump to cite North Korea's hostility in scrapping the June 12 summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, at a time when the president faced mounting pessimism at home about Kim's sincerity.
The man suspected of shooting three people inside an Oklahoma City restaurant before being fatally shot by bystanders had no obvious connection to the victims or the restaurant, and was legally authorized to carry a firearm, authorities said.
Investigators are trying to determine a motive behind the Thursday night attack that wounded four people, according to Oklahoma City Police Capt. Bo Mathews. He said the only interaction police had with the suspected gunman, 28-year-old Alexander Tilghman, was during a domestic assault and battery call when Tilghman was 13.
A police report from that 2003 incident indicates Tilghman was arrested after his mother told police he punched her several times during a dispute over a vacuum cleaner.

U.S. government forecasters are predicting a near or above-normal 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, likely with 10 to 16 named storms and up to four of them being major hurricanes.
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecasters released their storm season outlook Thursday at the agency's aircraft operations center in Lakeland, Florida. That facility is the base for NOAA's "hurricane hunter" aircraft that fly into storms to collect data used in storm forecasts.
Forecasters are predicting five to nine hurricanes with wind speeds of at least 74 mph. Major hurricanes have wind speeds of at least 111 mph.
