YEREVAN, Armenia — Armenia's prime minister accused top military officers on Thursday of attempting a coup after they demanded he step down, adding fuel to monthslong protests calling for his resignation following the nation's defeat in a conflict with Azerbaijan over the Nagorno-Karabakh region. The demonstrations began immediately after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan signed a Nov. 10 peace deal that saw Azerbaijan reclaim control over large parts of Nagorno-Karabakh and surrounding areas that had been held by Armenian forces for more than a quarter-century. Those protests have gathered pace this week, and the feud with his top military commanders has weakened Pashinyan's position. The immediate trigger for the standoff was Pashinyan’s decision to oust the first deputy chief of the military's General Staff, a group of the armed forces' top commanders. In response, the General Staff called for Pashinyan's resignation — but the prime minister doubled down and dismissed the chief of the General Staff. He described the military's statement as a “military coup attempt” and urged troops to only listen to his orders. He also called on his backers to come to the streets and then later walked among them, using a loudspeaker to rally support. “We need a conversation, not a confrontation,” he said. Pashinyan denied rumours that he was preparing to flee the country. Supporters of Pashinyan and the opposition engaged in sporadic scuffles on the streets of Yerevan on Thursday. Russia's government voiced concern over the tensions but emphasized that Armenia needs to sort it out itself. “We are calling for calm and believe that the situation should remain in the constitutional filed,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters. The crisis has its roots in Armenia's humiliating defeat in heavy fighting with Azerbaijan over Nagorno-Karabakh that erupted in late September and lasted 44 days. A Russian-brokered agreement ended the conflict in which the Azerbaijani army routed Armenian forces — but only after more than 6,000 people died on both sides. Pashinyan has defended the peace deal as a painful but necessary move to prevent Azerbaijan from overrunning the entire Nagorno-Karabakh region, which lies within Azerbaijan but was under the control of ethnic Armenian forces backed by Armenia since a separatist war there ended in 1994. Opposition groups have dismissed that argument. On Thursday, opposition demonstrators swarmed the streets of the Armenian capital, chanting “Nikol, you traitor!” and “Nikol, resign!” They paralyzed traffic all around Yerevan. Despite the simmering public anger over the military defeat, Pashinyan has manoeuvred to shore up his rule and the protests died down amid the winter's cold. But the opposition demonstrations resumed with new vigour this week — and then came the spat with top officers. Pashinyan fired the deputy chief of the General Staff, Lt. Gen. Tiran Khachatryan, earlier this week after he derided the prime minister's claim that just 10% of Russia-supplied Iskander missiles that Armenia used in the conflict exploded on impact. The General Staff responded Thursday with a statement demanding Pashinyan's resignation and warned the government against trying to use force against the opposition demonstrators. Immediately after the statement, Pashinyan dismissed the General Staff chief, Col. Gen. Onik Gasparyan. ____ Associated Press writers Vladimir Isachenkov and Daria Litvinova in Moscow contributed to this report. Avet Demourian, The Associated Press

Masks are used to prevent entry of the contaminated substances present in the air into the respiratory system of humans as these substances might be harmful to the body.New York, Feb. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Global Reusable Face Mask Market By Material, By Application, By Distribution Channel, By Region, Industry Analysis and Forecast, 2019 - 2025" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06028133/?utm_source=GNW Reusable face masks are generally made of cotton and nylon. Masks made of cotton generally comprise a minimum of 4 layers. These layers help to restrict the external contamination from entry through the nose and mouth of the wearer. Moreover, the addition of a layer of nylon over the masks reduced the flow of air around the edges of the masks and enhanced particle filtration effectiveness for the masks.Reusable face masks have emerged as a popular alternative as a result of the shortage of face masks during the COVID-19 pandemic. The reason for this popularity is reusable face masks are cost-effective and eco-friendly than disposable medical masks. Reusable face masks created with layers of knitted fabric with low density and a permeable filter are considered more breathable. Apart from this, these masks have highly thermally conductive materials and have superior water vapour permeability are extremely comfortable to wear as they can transit moisture and heat from the body rapidly, and hence do not easily deteriorate and dampen.In the case of a disposable mask, people need to readjust the mask continuously. Touching the mask frequently increases the risk of transferring pathogens from their hand to their faces, noses, and mouths. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that one should frequently wash hands and avoid touching faces. We contaminate the mask each time we adjust it with our hands. The side of the mask exposed to outer environment should be considered dirty and expected to be contaminated.By MaterialBased on Material, the market is segmented into Cotton, Nylon and Other Materials.

Reusable masks are washable, customizable, long-lasting as compared to disposable or surgical masks and various designs & fabrics are available in the market.By Distribution ChannelBased on Distribution Channel, the market is segmented into Online and Offline. The online distribution channel segment would exhibit highest growth rate over the forecast period. The major factors contributing to the growth of this segment include increasing internet penetration and target marketing by companies using social media platforms as it helps them to reach all customer touchpoints. Moreover, as mask-wearing is new normal among people, the scope of personalization and customization in masks has been trending amongst many online mask manufacturers.By RegionBased on Regions, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa. North America is anticipated to be the fastest-growing region in the reusable face masks market over the forecast period.

An expected dash by big corporations for offsets to meet their climate targets has prompted financial exchanges to launch carbon futures contracts to capitalise on what could be a multi-billion dollar market. Carbon offsets, generated by emissions reduction projects, such as tree planting or shifts to less polluting fuels, have struggled for years to gain credibility, but as climate action has become urgent, their market is expected to grow to as much as $50 billion by 2030. Among the major corporations that say they expect to use them to compensate for any emissions they cannot cut from their operations and products are Unilever, EasyJet, Royal Dutch Shell and BP, which all have climate targets.
These companies are delivering strong results of late, and there's reason to be optimistic about what's coming next.
