(Bloomberg) -- The group suspected of being behind the massive Colonial Pipeline Co. attack has told other hackers that it plans to shut down its ransomware-as-a-service operation amid pressure from law enforcement.The group DarkSide told its affiliates -- hackers who buy the group’s malware -- in a Thursday announcement that it had lost access to some infrastructure, including a blog and payment servers, according to Kimberly Goody, senior manager of financial criminal analysis at FireEye Inc.’s Mandiant. The group planned to close down and provide decrypters to companies that haven’t paid the ransom, she said.“The post cited law enforcement pressure and pressure from the United States for this decision,” Goody said in a statement. Mandiant’s investigators haven’t been able to independently verify the claims.The breach of Alpharetta, Georgia-based Colonial Pipeline forced the company to shut down operations last week, triggering fuel shortages in parts of the U.S. and focusing attention on ransomware, a type of cyberattack in which hackers encrypt a victim’s computers and demand a ransom to unlock them.DarkSide’s site on the dark web wasn’t working as of Thursday, nor were other domains maintained by the group.Some ransomware groups maintain pages on the dark web where they post stolen documents to pressure victims into paying or list the names of companies that have refused their demands. DarkSide’s site posted what appeared to be three new victims on its site as recently as May 12, as they continued to leak new data on the site for existing digital hostages.Dark web researchers speculated that the outage could be DarkSide’s effort to duck law enforcement given the turmoil caused by the attack. “DarkSide is likely going to go quiet and rebrand itself, as we’ve observed with other dark net ransomware operators in the past when they became targets of law enforcement,” said Mark Turnage, co-founder of DarkOwl, a dark web and cyber research firm.President Joe Biden said Russia has “some responsibility” to address the Colonial attack, saying “there’s evidence” the hackers or the software they used are “in Russia.” Cybersecurity experts have also cited the group’s use of the Russian language and the exclusion of Russian companies as hacking targets.In a message posted after the Colonial attack, DarkSide hinted at contrition and that a “partner” might be to blame.“We are apolitical. We do not participate in geopolitics,” the message said. “Our goal is to make money and not creating problems for society. From today, we introduce moderation and check each company that our partners want to encrypt to avoid social consequences in the future.”(Updates with details about DarkSide’s links to Russia in eighth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
(Bloomberg) -- U.S. equities rose and Treasury yields declined for a second consecutive day as more-tempered commodity prices helped allay concerns about inflation risks.Energy and technology shares led the S&P 500, which tumbled Wednesday by the most since February. The tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 outperformed the broader index, suggesting a market recovery is gaining momentum, after a bruising week that saw gathering price pressures hit equities. An advance in European stocks was led by cyclical industries. MSCI Inc.’s Asia-Pacific share gauge advanced more than 1%.”We have to look ahead six months -- we’re having an economy that’s reopening,” Citibank Private Bank Chief Investment Officer David Bailin said on Bloomberg TV. “What we’re seeing is an incredible pent-up demand for certain parts of the economy and basically anything that leaves your house.”Markets appear to be regaining their equilibrium at the end of their biggest retreat in 11 weeks, with the focus of the benefits of an economic rebound overriding worry about the negative side-effect of inflation, for now.The Federal Reserve’s policy is in a good place right now, said Cleveland Fed President Loretta Mester, while playing down signals from data that she warns will be volatile as the economy reopens.That may help to reinvigorate the reflation narrative of picking value shares tied to economic growth over pandemic stay-at-home favorites. Walt Disney Co. fell after results that showed a faltering in growth at streaming service Disney+.Treasuries remained higher after a report showed U.S. retail sales stalled in April following a sharp advance in the prior month. The dollar remained weaker against all of its Group of 10 peers.“The disappointing retail sales numbers shouldn’t really come as a huge surprise given that last month encompassed stimulus money hitting bank accounts,” said Mike Loewengart, managing director of investment strategy at E*Trade Financial. “It probably supports the point of view that the dip we experienced this week is a buying opportunity as all sectors march toward full recovery.”Iron ore continued its fall from a record amid efforts by China to clamp down on surging prices, with the metal set for the biggest two-day plunge since 2019. Oil erased an earlier decline, paring its weekly loss.Bitcoin traded above $50,000, reversing some of its slump on Tesla Inc.’s decision to suspend purchases using the digital currency.The MLIV Question of the Day is: When Can Crypto Reach Mainstream Investing?These are some of the main moves in markets:StocksThe S&P 500 rose 1.4%, more than any closing gain since April 5 as of 1:18 p.m. New York timeThe Nasdaq 100 rose 1.9%, more than any closing gain since April 5The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 1%The MSCI World index rose 1.5%, more than any closing gain since March 1CurrenciesThe Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index fell 0.3%, more than any closing loss since May 7The euro rose 0.5% to $1.2136The British pound rose 0.3% to $1.4090The Japanese yen was little changed at 109.43 per dollarBondsThe yield on 10-year Treasuries declined one basis point to 1.65%Germany’s 10-year yield declined one basis point, more than any closing loss since May 4Britain’s 10-year yield declined four basis points, more than any closing loss since May 4CommoditiesWest Texas Intermediate crude rose 2.2%, the most since May 4Gold futures rose 0.8% to $1,838 an ounceFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Paul Harker obituary
Like many young hockey players, Conner Roulette’s 2020-21 hockey season was drastically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The inability to play a full season due to various pandemic restrictions was even more frustrating for Roulette, a member of Misipawistik Cree Nation in Manitoba, as it was also his pro draft year. Though he was unable to properly showcase his skills over several months before the National Hockey League’s Entry Draft this summer, where he is expected to be chosen, Roulette will still have some fond memories of the season. The highlight will undoubtedly be helping Canada capture the gold medal at the International Ice Hockey Federation world men’s under-18 hockey tournament. Canada defeated Russia 5-3 in the gold-medal match, which was held May 6. A pair of cities in Texas, Frisco and Plano, co-hosted the global event, which featured 10 teams. Roulette, a left winger who toils for the Seattle Thunderbirds of the Western Hockey League (WHL), contributed five points, including a pair of goals, in seven matches at the world tournament. The Canadians won all seven of the matches outscoring their opponents 51-12. “We had a group of a lot of confident guys,” said Roulette, who turned 18 on Thursday. Roulette, who is expected to be an early-round pick at the NHL draft scheduled for July 23-24, considered it an honour to participate in the prestigious tournament. “I was really fortunate to play there,” he said. “Even if we didn’t win there were so many world-class players there and it was a great experience.” Roulette also praised the professionalism of Hockey Canada officials, as well as its coaching and management teams. He said he didn’t have any safety concerns participating in a world tourney during a pandemic. “I knew Hockey Canada would do a good job (with safety protocols) and not have anything get in the way of our tournament,” Roulette said. Besides returning with some shiny hardware from the Texas event, Roulette also gained some new friends. The Canadian roster featured eight other WHL players, including some individuals Roulette frequently squares off against in league action. One individual in particular that Roulette formed a new bond with was Olen Zellweger, a defenceman with the WHL’s Everett Silvertips. Like the Thunderbirds, the Silvertips are based in the state of Washington, making Seattle and Everett fierce rivals. “We take a lot of pride in not liking the opposition,” Roulette said. “So there was a lot of chirping going on.” Though Roulette and Zellweger came together to help the Canadians win a world title, Roulette said things won’t change when they square off against each other next time on the ice. “But if I saw him off the ice, I’ll be his friend,” Roulette said. As for the rest of his hockey season, Roulette had plenty of ups and downs. For starters, the pandemic significantly pushed back the start of the WHL campaign. Instead of a 68-game regular season beginning last September, the league cut back to a 24-game season, which didn’t begin until February. And because of border regulations, the Thunderbirds were only allowed to play the four other American teams in the WHL during their season. The league also did not stage any playoffs. “It’s pretty frustrating but at the same time it’s all out of our control,” Roulette said of his draft season drastically impacted by the pandemic. “Everyone else in the world is dealing with it. And you have to deal with it and what you’re given.” This past fall, while he was waiting to see when the WHL would commence its season, Roulette did manage to play some games in his home province. Though they were still under WHL contracts, Manitoba-based players in the league were given permission to suit up for clubs in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League (MJHL). The MJHL is a Junior A circuit considered one step below the WHL. Roulette, who lives in Winnipeg, hooked up with the Selkirk Steelers, a team based about a 30-minute drive from his home. “I took it upon myself and decided to try and play some games there,” he said. Though he had never played in the MJHL before, Roulette knew his league playing rights had been previously protected by the Swan Valley Stampeders. But once he determined he was no longer Stampeders’ property and was in essence considered a free agent by MJHL clubs, he could attempt to earn a roster spot wherever he pleased. “I knew a lot of the guys with the Selkirk team,” he said of his decision to join the Steelers. His time, however, with the Steelers was short-lived. Roulette played a Saturday night contest with the squad last October. After practicing with the Steelers for a week, he then played two more October contests. But the MJHL season was then ground to a halt when new pandemic measures were set. Earlier on in his teens Roulette was a member of Team Manitoba at two National Aboriginal Hockey Championships. He helped Manitoba win the bronze medal at the 2018 tournament in Membertou, N.S. And then the following year he was part of the Manitoba squad that captured the gold medal at the tourney staged in Whitehorse, Yukon’s capital.

The clock is ticking on climate change and the stakes are high. We know most of the solutions for cutting carbon and much of what the future needs to look like. More than new solutions, we need a better way to align potential — across actors, sectors and systems. Cities are at the leading edge of developing and deploying the low-carbon solutions we need for a net-zero future.
FREDERICTON — Tensions are escalating between Parks Canada and the family of the late Jackie Vautour over who is the rightful owner of property in New Brunswick's Kouchibouguac National Park. Vautour staged a 50-year battle against expropriation of the land before his death in February of this year, claiming he was Métis-Acadian and the land is unceded Mi'kmaq territory. Parks Canada has written two letters since early April seeking to have Vautour's belongings removed from the property and accusing the family of trespassing. Following the first letter, Vautour's son, Edmond, called the efforts by Parks Canada just two months after his father's death "shameful." He turned down an offer by Parks Canada to move any structures and belongings from the land, and lawyer Michael Swinwood of the non-profit organization Elders Without Borders sent a letter to Parks Canada. The group describes itself as being dedicated to preserving the teachings of Indigenous elders. "Please be advised that we hereby put you on notice that nothing is to be disturbed at the residence of Mme. Yvonne Vautour in the unceded, unsurrendered Mi'kmaq territory," Swinwood wrote. "Elders Without Borders continues to act for Keptin Stephen Augustine, of the Mi'kmaq Grand Council, and will hold Parks Canada liable for any trespass on the Vautour land, and seek elevated damages should this notice not be adhered to." Augustine says the land is unceded Mi'kmaq territory, and he has told the Vautours they can continue to live on it. James Rossiter, a lawyer for Parks Canada wrote back to Elders Without Borders on April 29, to say Augustine's claim is an assertion of title and "final proof of the claim cannot be assumed and it not imminent." The issue is before the courts but at the earliest procedural stages. The Parks Canada letter goes on to say "occupation of the land in Kouchibouguac National Park at the site of the Vautour encampment" is illegal under the Canada National Parks Act and constitutes trespassing and a public nuisance. "With the passing of Mr. Vautour, so too has passed the basis for leniency with the continuation of unlawful occupation. Continued inaction by Parks Canada can no longer be supported," Rossiter wrote. Elders Without Borders responded to the second letter by warning Parks Canada against trying to remove property from the land and casting the federal agency as the occupier. "Any action by Parks Canada to act as an administrator of unceded and unsurrendered Indigenous lands will amount to trespass. Please govern yourselves accordingly," the organization wrote. Edmond Vautour has moved a trailer onto the property and said he plans to spend the summer and fall there with his mother and brother. He said he'll meet on Sunday with lawyers and representatives of 68 other families who were expropriated from the land. "We're going to have a good chat about the next steps we're going to do," he said in an interview this week. Parks Canada officials declined comment, referring to a public statement issued April 14. In the statement, the agency says it is seeking to honour the past while looking to the future of Kouchibouguac National Park. And it repeats the offer to help the Vautours remove their belongings from the park land. This report by The Canadian Press was first published May 14, 2021. Kevin Bissett, The Canadian Press

The rivers have been swelling for weeks in Brazil’s Amazon region, and residents in a town that bills itself as ‘The Venice of Amazonas’ traded motorcycles for canoes and are clambering atop fresh-laid planks inside their homes to stay dry. Anama, home to 14,000 people on a tributary of the Solimoes River that flows toward capital Manaus, is just one municipality of dozens in Amazonas state that has seen life upended by unusual rainfall. Amazonas’s civil defense secretariat on Thursday warned the flood could soon be biggest recorded in the last century, and said 350,000 people have already been affected.
