ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Alaska Native Vietnam War veterans can continue applying for federal land allotments, including on lands under review by the Biden administration, according to the U.S. Interior Department. The department last month said it was halting plans advanced during the Trump administration that proposed opening 28 million acres in Alaska to mineral development and for land selections. It cited issues including “inadequate review of potential impacts on subsistence hunting and fishing,” and said the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, which falls under the department, would “engage the public” and consult with tribes. The decision called for a two-year delay. Members of Alaska's congressional delegation raised concerns with possible land allotment delays. The department later said it would accept applications from Native veterans seeking lands in the area during the two-year review. Tyler Cherry, a department spokesperson, told the Anchorage Daily News Monday allotments can be awarded before the review is complete. Lands are available for selection until late 2025. Some veterans have said that lands being made available are difficult to access or outside their cultural homelands. The program seeks to fulfill promises made under the 1906 Alaska Native Allotment Act, which allowed Alaska Natives to apply for up to 160 acres of land. The Associated Press

FREACHE, a respiratory brand of Guangdong Zhongke Zongheng Health Management Service Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "Zhongke Zongheng"), has launched the first product FREACHE Solid Beverage.Guangzhou, China, May 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In 2021, although vaccination programs have been launched all over the world, there are still many countries, especially poor developing countries, which are extremely short of COVID-19 vaccine. In the past 49 days, there has been a continuous upward trend in the world. At the same time, 4.4 million COVID-19 cases have been added in the week from April 5. Obviously, the epidemic is far from over, and other anti-epidemic measures are still indispensable besides continuing to promote vaccinations. The body's immunity and resistance play a vital role in human health. Therefore, people nowadays pay more attention to the health of respiratory system than ever before. In order to further improve people's respiratory health, FREACHE, a respiratory brand of Guangdong Zhongke Zongheng Health Management Service Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "Zhongke Zongheng"), has launched the first product FREACHE Solid Beverage, which is led by Professor Zhou Chaofan, PhD supervisor of China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences and developed based on the principle of "traditional Chinese medicine", which can effectively improve people's respiratory quality and improve their respiratory state. It is known that there are about 600 million people suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease at present, among which about 100 million people in China suffer from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and their risk is 2 times higher than that of heart disease and 7 times higher than that of cancer. Among the elderly over 60 years old, one in every four people has chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; One out of every three patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in the world comes from China. To this end, Zhongke Zongheng analyzed and demonstrated the physique of modern people repeatedly based on several ancient Chinese medical classics and decades of clinical experience. Finally, it developed FREACHE Solid Beverage. The product also adopts a unique molecular refinement technology, which reduces the molecular weight of Chinese herbal extracts by 6-10 times, thereby improving the bioavailability of medicinal properties by 6-10 times and accelerating the effect of the product. Many years ago, Zhongke Zongheng noticed the value and development trend of Chinese medicine, and began to absorb the top talents in the industry and cultivate Chinese herbal medicine health products. Zhongke Zongheng assembled a group of high-level experts around the world, led by Professor Zhou Chaofan, and joined hands with Professor Lu Guangshen, a world-renowned master of Chinese medicine, and Dr. Huang Guojun, a pharmaceutical expert, to form a core R&D team. In addition, the team also has more than 40 well-known domestic doctors, professors and doctors, and more than 20 doctors and professors from the United States, Germany, Switzerland and other countries. After 2,557 days and a cost of 27 million yuan, FREACHE Solid Beverage finally went on the market. After the marketing, the efficacy of FREACHE Solid Beverage was unanimously affirmed by users, and many people insisted on drinking it for just two weeks, and their respiratory symptoms were obviously improved. With the continuous introduction of relevant policies at all levels in China, with the continuous efforts of upstream and downstream enterprises in the industrial chain, through independent innovation, cooperation and exchange, and the use of modern technology to explore, verify and apply the rich wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine, Zhongke Zongheng will surely make its due contribution to the global anti-epidemic campaign.

Italian luxury group Valentino said on Tuesday it would stop using fur from next year and would focus on its main, eponymous brand, ditching its second, younger line from 2024. The fashion company controlled by Qatari investment vehicle Mayhoola follows many other brands in banning fur in recent years including Prada, Versace, Gucci and Armani, due to growing customer sensitivity to animal rights and environmental issues. The latest Valentino collection to include fur will be the Fall/Winter 2021-22 season, the company said.
LONDON (AP) — Ireland’s health system struggled to restore computers and treat patients Tuesday, four days after it shut down its entire information technology system in response to a ransomware attack. Thousands of diagnostic appointments, cancer treatment clinics and surgeries have been canceled or delayed since Friday's cyberattack. Authorities said hundreds of people were assigned to respond to the attack but it could be weeks before the public health service will return to normal. Irish Prime Minister Micheal Martin said the attack was a “heinous” one that targeted patients and “the Irish public.” The chief clinical officer of Ireland's Health Service Executive, Colm Henry said the intrusion was having “a profound impact on our ability to deliver care” and that disruptions would undoubtedly “mount in the coming days and weeks.” More than 2,000 patient-facing IT systems were affected, and around 80,000 devices were linked to such systems throughout the health service, Henry told Irish broadcaster RTE. Authorities are prioritizing the recovery of systems involved in patient diagnostics, such as radiology, radiotherapy and maternity and newborn services. “That’s what our experts are focusing on this week, with external help, to ensure those services are not reliant on manual exchange of information,” he said. Ransomware attacks are typically carried out by criminal hackers who scramble data, paralyzing victims’ networks, and demand a large payment to decrypt the information. Irish officials say a ransom was demanded but they will not pay it. Conti, a Russian-speaking ransomware group, was demanding $20 million, according to the ransom negotiation page on its darknet site viewed by The Associated Press. The gang threatened Monday to “start publishing and selling your private information very soon,” if it did not receive the money. “The government will not be paying any money,” Justice Minister Heather Humphreys told RTE. “We will not be blackmailed.” The Irish Association for Emergency Medicine urged people not to turn up at hospital emergency rooms unless they had a genuinely urgent need. The association said electronic ordering of blood tests, X-rays and scans was unavailable and clinicians had no access to previous X-rays or scan results. Many hospital telephone systems also were not working because they are carried on computer networks, it added. The attack has also shut down the system used to pay health care workers. Patients have expressed frustration at the attack, describing it as another torment thrown into the already difficult struggle accessing health care during the COVID-19 pandemic. Eimear Cregg, 38, a primary school teacher who is receiving treatment for breast cancer, had her radiation therapy briefly postponed while doctors sought to restore her records so they could treat her properly. “This is a very cruel thing to do to vulnerable people,″ Cregg told The Associated Press. “We’re fighting every day as it is, and this was just another curve ball that wasn’t needed.″ Ireland's publicly funded health care system, the Health Service Executive, said in a statement late Monday that there were “serious concerns about the implications for patient care arising from the very limited access to diagnostics, lab services and historical patient records.” The health service said it was working methodically to assess and restore its computer systems. The Ireland attack comes as ransomware gangs persist in identifying “big game” targets in search of lucrative payouts and data that can help them identify new victims - and even determine the amount of cyber-insurance coverage they carry. Operations of four Asian affiliates of the Paris-based insurance company AXA were hit in recent days by by ransomware attacks: in Thailand, Malaysia, Hong Kong and the Philippines. The attackers claimed to have stolen 3 terabytes of data, including medical records, customer IDs and privileged communications with hospitals and doctors. The hackers threatened to leak documents within 10 days if AXA does not pay an unspecified ransom. AXA said this month that it would stop writing cyber-insurance policies in France that reimburse customers for extortion payments made to ransomware criminals, saying the practice encourages more such attacks. In a new case, ransomware took down IT systems across five hospitals south of Auckland, New Zealand, forcing staff to cancel some elective surgeries preventing doctors from accessing clinical records, authorities said. Ransomware attacks have surged in the past year, though there may be a dip following the worst attack to date on U.S. critical infrastructure. A nearly week-long shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline, which supplies the east coast with 45% of its petroleum products, led U.S. President Joe Biden to vow retaliation. That prompted the moderator of one of the most popular darknet criminal forums, XS, to disavow ransomware syndicates and to ban them from recruiting and conducting other business on the forum. But experts say it’s typical for criminals to lay low when law enforcement scrutiny gets acute. Ransomware reached epidemic levels last year as the criminals, who enjoy safe harbor in former Soviet states, increasingly turned to “double extortion,” stealing sensitive data before activating the encryption software that paralyzes networks — and threatening to dump it online if they don’t get paid. ___ Bajak reported from Boston.
