JUNEAU, Alaska — An Alaska Native corporation said it was unable to meet a deadline for aerial surveys of polar bear dens in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge because a federal agency did not issue the necessary authorization in a timely manner. The Kaktovik Inupiat Corp. also took issue with what it calls a “blatant mischaracterization” of what happened and says it is owed an apology. On Saturday, Melissa Schwartz, a spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Interior, said the corporation had confirmed to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials that den detection surveys had not been conducted by a Feb. 13 deadline. The corporation was told “their request is no longer actionable, and the Service does not intend to issue or deny the authorization,” she said. Her comments echoed those of Regional U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Gregory Siekaniec in a letter to corporation President Matthew Rexford a day earlier. The corporation had sought authorization from the agency for activities that could disturb polar bears as part of a broader proposal to conduct what are known as seismic surveys to search for oil and gas deposits within the refuge’s coastal plain. In December, the Fish and Wildlife Service released for comment a proposed authorization that would allow for “incidental harassment” of polar bears in the coastal plain during a set period for seismic work. More than 6 million comments were received, according to Siekaniec. In his letter, Siekaniec said the agency was unable to review and consider all the comments and “make appropriate refinements” to the proposed authorization and supporting documents before a "key milestone” in the corporation's request, noting the Feb. 13 deadline. Rexford, in a response to the regional director, said the corporation had gotten conflicting messages on the status of that review. He said that the agency had failed his corporation and community. Kaktovik is on the northern edge of the refuge, on the Beaufort Sea coast. He told The Associated Press the corporation is evaluating its next steps. Schwartz on Friday declined comment beyond her previous statement. President Joe Biden’s administration last month announced plans for a temporary moratorium on oil and gas leasing in the refuge after the Trump administration issued leases in a part of the region considered sacred by the Indigenous Gwich’in. The Interior Department says none of the lands proposed for seismic survey activity are within the area that has been leased. Pending lawsuits have challenged the adequacy of the environmental review process undertaken by the Trump administration. Becky Bohrer, The Associated Press
Ani Goulayan Vanity Makeup Los Angeles, CA, Feb. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- We’d like you to get to know the beauty and brains behind Vanity Makeup -- a multi-faceted empire created by glam queen and beauty influencer, Ani Goulayan. This self-taught artist began her makeup career long before YouTube and Instagram beauty tutorials existed. In fact, she was one of the first creators to make eye-look pictorials go viral on Instagram back in 2012. Since her origins on the platform, after nine years in the making, the makeup artist has gained over 1.3 million followers, opened up her own makeup school, and launched her own cosmetics line. She began her journey as an artist working for free on photoshoots and small events. Eventually, her experience gained her access to a couple of part-time jobs at local beauty salons in Los Angeles. But it wasn’t until she took her talent to social media that her life really took a turn. She created an account under the handle @VanityMakeup, utilizing it as a digital showcase of some of her previous work. After practicing some dramatic eyeshadow looks at home, the artist would photograph the result and upload it onto her page. At the beginning, she created content as a hobby to improve her skill and possibly help build up her local clientele. But once her posts started going viral on the platform, Goulayan was quickly becoming a reputable, sought-after makeup icon. She was gaining an average of 30-50,000 followers a month and consistently being featured on the social platform’s “popular page” (2012’s version of the explore page). A-list celebrities and well-respected makeup artists in the industry took notice of Goulayan’s work and commended her for her talents, all while she established herself as a beauty influencer right around the time the industry began to erupt. Due to high demand, she began to teach small classes of makeup how-to’s consisting of around thirty students. The more popular she grew, the quicker her classes filled up in capacity. Once she found herself teaching masterclasses of over a hundred students, she knew she had the potential to take it a step further. In 2016, she opened the doors to Vanity Makeup School-- an academy located in Los Angeles dedicated to teaching all levels of makeup, along with a self-made space she could also use to work on her personal clients. The first two years of business were a non-stop boom. As if running a business weren’t enough to handle along with keeping up consistency on socials, the creative entrepreneur also decided to begin working on her own line of cosmetics in 2018. Since one of her well-known practices on Instagram is face contouring, she felt it was only appropriate for her first product launch to consist of a contour kit. She worked on the custom formula for two years, along with its custom packaging components. The high-quality pieces were manufactured in Italy and overcame a production process of over a year and a half. In February 2020, the Sculpt & Glow Contour Palette made its official debut in five different shade ranges on www.vanitymakeup.com. Goulayan tells us that she would’ve never expected her makeup career to have come this far. Despite the obstacles she’s faced and the negativity she’s endured, she’s chosen her success amongst all odds and undoubtedly conquered the beauty industry. As far as what the future holds, Vanity Makeup Cosmetics is scheduled to launch two new products by the end of the year, and the makeup artist also has a secret project in the works that should make its debut in the coming months.

WASHINGTON — U.S. Attorney John Durham said Friday that he will resign from his position as the top federal prosecutor in Connecticut but is remaining as a special counsel to oversee the Justice Department's investigation into the origins of the Russia probe that shadowed Donald Trump’s presidency. Durham will resign from his post as U.S. attorney for Connecticut on Monday. But Durham, who was appointed in October by then-Attorney General William Barr as a special counsel to investigate the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, will remain in that capacity. Like Durham, nearly every other U.S. attorney who served in the Trump administration was asked earlier this month to submit their resignations as the Biden administration moves to transition to its own nominees. The FBI in July 2016 began investigating whether the Trump campaign was co-ordinating with Russia to sway the outcome of the presidential election. That probe was inherited nearly a year later by special counsel Mueller, who ultimately did not find enough evidence to charge Trump or any of his associates with conspiring with Russia. The early months of the investigation, when agents obtained secret surveillance warrants targeting a former Trump campaign aide, have long been scrutinized by Trump and other critics of the probe who say the FBI made significant errors. A Justice Department inspector general report backed up that criticism but did not find evidence that mistakes in the surveillance applications and other problems with the probe were driven by partisan bias. Durham’s investigation, which the Justice Department has described as a criminal probe, had begun very broadly but Barr said in December that it had “narrowed considerably” and that it was “really is focused on the activities of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation within the FBI.” Durham’s investigation has so far resulted in one prosecution so far. A former FBI lawyer was sentenced to probation last month for altering an email the Justice Department relied on in its surveillance of an aide to President Donald Trump during the Russia investigation. The U.S. attorneys transition process, which happens routinely between administrations, applies to a few dozen U.S. attorneys who were appointed by Trump and confirmed by the Senate and many of the federal prosecutors who were nominated by Trump already left their positions. A senior Justice Department official told the AP earlier this month that David Weiss, the U.S. attorney in Delaware, overseeing the federal tax probe involving Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, will remain in place. The 93 U.S. attorneys serve at the pleasure of the president and are responsible for overseeing offices of federal prosecutors and charged with prosecuting federal crimes in their jurisdictions.

Millions of orange and black monarch butterflies migrate to Mexico on a 2,000-mile (3,220-km) journey each year from Canada across North America.But the butterflies occupied only 2.1 hectares in December 2020, compared with 2.8 hectares the previous winter season, the conservationist group WWF said in a statement.Climate change had a "considerable impact" on the butterflies' migration pattern, as well as the reduction in their milkweed breeding habitant in the United States, the WWF said.Mexico's western state of Michoacan is home to the country's largest monarch butterfly reserve, typically a major tourist attraction. Visitors to the reserve have plummeted during the pandemic, sanctuary officials said.

Joss Sackler LBV New York City, NY, Feb. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LBV, a multi-faceted entity owned by Joss Sackler, has become a name to reckon with amongst the fashion industry. The ready-to-wear luxury line has been notoriously known for conquering New York Fashion Week on multiple occasions since its F/W 19 inaugural collection in 2019. Pieces per capsule range anywhere from suits to evening gowns and even some recent knitwear, created to embrace the fierce, but confident individuality of a powerful woman in modern day society. Prior to being recognized for its innovative fashion, however, LBV was solely known as the women’s wine club in New York City, founded by Mrs. Sackler in 2017. The club was created as a female rendition of the many typical, male-dominated drinking fraternities commonly found in the city, during a time when women’s societies were on a surging wave. Over the last few years, the organization has evolved into a community of women interconnected through more than just wine, but also the love of culture, art, cuisine, and design. Access to the club’s dreamy perks is no easy feat though, as membership is meticulously exclusive and can only be obtained by referral or through a vetted application process. Unlike the LBV’s designer wardrobe came about almost by accident, initially intended to be a small offshoot of the social club with a few simple pieces of clothing and accessories. “As the club grew over the years, members began to request emblematic swag they could wear as a representation of their membership. Our first release of LBV pieces consisted of athleisure wear inspired by rock climbing, which is one of my favorite hobbies… But in the end, we felt that it didn’t accurately represent the sophistication of the brand,” Sackler says. In efforts to elevate future pieces, the CEO brought on Elizabeth Kennedy as the creative director of the line-- a well-known fashion designer who has worked in couture with luxury designers like J. Mendel and Isaac Mizrahi. With Kennedy’s talent and an immense shift in focus, LBV was able to enter its first high-end season with the release of its Spring/Summer 2020 collection. Since then, the brand has released three more collections, with another currently in the works for Fashion Week 2021. Several LBV pieces have dressed celebrities like Jo Ellen Pellman, Alison Brie, and Patricia Arquette. All garments are designed in-house and hand-crafted in NYC’s fashion capital: the Garment District. Price points tend to range from $600 for casualwear to $13,000 for intricate evening gowns, but members receive exclusive preferential pricing. The collections are now available to shop on the brand’s e-commerce site. In recent extension to the “LBV World”, the brand has released a lifestyle magazine composed by a team of writers and bloggers who also happen to be active members of LBV. Stories within the publication touch on similar subjects to those of the women’s society, including fashion, food, and wine. Issue One made its debut in November 2020 for members only, and the magazine’s second issue is currently undergoing production, estimated to release in March 2021. A wider distribution list is under discussion for future editions. “We’re lucky to have a team of such supportive, positive people that are always encouraging each other to do well,” Sackler shares. “In the end, I can say my experiences with LBV have been nothing short of successful, despite the challenges we’ve overcome and the negativity we’ve faced. It’s okay if we fail along the way. We’re always working to make every experience better,” she says.

(Kirk Pennell/CBC - image credit) For the first time in 20 years, a committee of the P.E.I. Legislature is using its power to issue a subpoena. On Friday, members of the province's standing committee on health and social development voted unanimously to issue a subpoena to compel government to provide a report from the Island Regulatory and Appeals Commission on a controversial land transfer. The committee will issue the subpoena to Minister of Agriculture and Lands Bloyce Thompson, who received the report from IRAC in October. "Islanders really want to ensure that the spirit and the intent of the Lands Protection Act is being upheld," said Green MLA Trish Altass, a member of the committee. "And there are a lot of questions with what happened with this particular situation." In the fall of 2019, Thompson vowed to close any loopholes in the Lands Protection Act and ordered IRAC to investigate after a deal involving 890 hectares of land in the Summerside and North Bedeque areas did not go before cabinet for approval. So it is still incredibly valuable for us to be able to access the report and learn that information. — Green MLA Trish Altass Under the LPA, corporations require cabinet approval to own more than two hectares of land. So far, Thompson has refused to make the report public over privacy concerns, heeding advice he sought from the province's privacy commissioner that the province release the report through the access-to-information system. Among the applications for the report is one filed by CBC News. Thompson also rejected two requests from the health committee, the first to have him present the report at a closed-door meeting, the second simply to provide the report for committee members to examine. In question period Friday, Thompson told MLAs "there's no one in this house that wants this report released more than I do, because Islanders deserve to know what's in that report." I will carry it in myself if that's what they want to do. — Minister of Agriculture and Lands Bloyce Thompson But he said to comply with opposition requests to release the report, without following the advice of the privacy commissioner, would be "to break the law." Speaking to reporters later in the day, he said the only way he could surrender the report would be under subpoena, and if the committee were to provide one, "I will hand deliver the report. I will carry it in myself if that's what they want to do." Both the Green Party and one PC member of the health committee, Zack Bell, wrote to the committee chair suggesting MLAs issue a subpoena. Brad Trivers, the lone cabinet minister on the committee, did not attend the meeting. The motion passed by the MLAs called for the subpoena to be issued by the end of the day Monday, and to demand the report be produced by Friday, March 5. Under the Legislative Assembly Act, the chair of a legislative committee can issue a warrant or subpoena 'requiring attendance of that person, and the production of any records and things indicated in the warrant or subpoena, before the committee.' Because the committee plans to review the document in camera, members would not be able to publicly disclose what they learn. But Altass said the committee would be permitted to file their own report with recommendations. "So it is still incredibly valuable for us to be able to access the report and learn that information," said Altass. The quest for the report was taken up by the health committee because it's also responsible for justice, which includes freedom of information. Under the Legislative Assembly Act, the chair of a legislative committee can issue a warrant or subpoena "requiring attendance of that person, and the production of any records and things indicated in the warrant or subpoena, before the committee." An official with the legislature said the last time that power was used was in September 2001. More from CBC P.E.I.
Donald Trump's niece accused him on Friday of trying to dodge accountability for defrauding her out of a multimillion dollar inheritance by claiming she took too long to sue. Lawyers for Mary Trump made the accusation in a New York state court in Manhattan, where the 55-year-old psychologist is suing the former president, his sister Maryanne Trump Barry and his late brother Robert's estate. A lawyer for Donald Trump and Robert's estate could not immediately be reached outside business hours.
