Kim Jong-un's sister mocks US intelligence – issues threat to prepare for 'disappointment'

Kim Jong-un’s sister, who is a senior official in North Korea’s ruling party, has released an official statement stating the US is interpreting signals from North Korea in the “wrong way”. The sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un focussed her warning on US National Security adviser Jake Sullivan, who made comments about her brother. Mr Sullivan announced on Sunday there was an “interesting signal” in a recent speech by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

The US National Security adviser was referring to “signals” made by the North Korean leader when he was preparing for diplomatic talks with the US and South Korea.

Kim Yo-jong was quick to reply and speaking to North Korea’s KCNA state news agency, said: “A Korean proverb says that in a dream, what counts most is to read it, not to have it.

“It seems that the US may interpret the situation in such a way as to seek a comfort for itself.

“The expectation, which they chose to harbour the wrong way, would plunge them into a greater disappointment.”

North Korea’s nuclear weapons programme has given Joe Biden’s administration a challenge that Washington claims can be solved by using a “calibrated and practical” approach by encouraging the regime to give up its deadly arsenal.

The US is currently trying to get talks between North and South Korea back on track.

To encourage diplomatic initiatives, the US special representative for North Korea, Sung Kim, is scheduled to meet South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Tuesday.

US official, Sung Kim, said on Monday he was willing to meet with the North Koreans “anywhere, anytime without preconditions”.

Kim Yo-jong is Kim Jong-un’s younger sister, and regarded as a powerful ally, in an otherwise divided family.

She is considered to be a possible successor to Kim Jong-un, who is rumoured to be suffering from ill-health.

In March 2021 she warned the Biden administration: “If it wants to sleep in peace for the coming four years, it had better refrain from causing a stink at its first step”.

Here she referred to the ongoing military drills that were being conducted between the US and South Korea.

Indian Navy on high alert for new China threat – Beijing military takeover Sri Lankan port

China has provoked the ire of the Indian navy after Xi Jinping’s regime secured the construction of a new port city in Sri Lanka. New Delhi has responded cautiously to the move which could see Beijing project power into the Indian Ocean. India‘s naval forces are said to be watching developments in Sri Lanka closely amid growing tensions between the two rival nuclear-armed states.

WION correspondent Eric Njoka told the India-based network: “The Chinese are increasingly getting active in the Indian Ocean region.

“Their activities around Sri Lanka is under the scanner of New Delhi.

“The Chinese Navy taking control of projects in Sri Lanka and that could pose a threat to India’s maritime interests.”

It comes as the vice chief of India’s Navy said that his forces are very well prepared to secure the maritime boundaries of the country.

Vice-Admiral G. Ashok Kumar told WION: “You want to analyze if it is a threat or not, it is a very difficult question.

“But the fact is that say when someone who is external to the region starts showing so much interest”

“Though they might have rational reasons for it because their energy source too permanently passes through these water.

He added: “If you look actually at multinational forces they are at any given time about 80 ships from various countries which operate in the Northern Arabian Sea.

China has been making recent inroads in Sri Lanka and recently secured plans for a reclaimed port city near Columbo.

This has led some to query whether the Chinese could take India by surprise in a possible naval clash.

Vice Admiral Kumar said the Indian navy has taken “a number of steps” such as the instalment of a “coastal security network.”

He added the country was looking to deploy further “enhanced surveillance” to monitor Chinese ship movements in the region.

China is 'existential threat of 21st century' as US-EU put on notice over Beijing threat

China has adopted an increasingly hostile stance towards the United States and its allies in the Asia-Pacific, threatening Taiwan with a takeover and asserting a controversial claim over the South China Sea. Former US National Security Advisor John Bolton warned Beijing has now become the “existential threat of the 21st century” to the US, Europe and their allies in Asia. Speaking to LBC, Mr Bolton said: “My view is that China is the existential threat of the 21st century to the United States and to the West as a whole.

“I don’t think Trump was pursuing a terribly consistent policy but I think attitude in America, in Europe, in Japan have changed dramatically since evidence has come out about how China concealed the origins of the coronavirus and impeded international physicians and investigators from trying to understand it better so we could deal with it more effectively in our respective countries.

“People understand the greater threat China poses, really, across the board. Politically, economically, militarily.

“I think the desire to stand up to their efforts will increase. Biden has surely used the rhetoric of this kind of approach.

“Biden has a background here and once we get past the rhetoric, whether his actions will meet a fairly tough standard remains to be seen.”

“It could be a phone call, it could be a meeting on the margins of another international summit, it could be something else.”

Mr Biden and President Xi are both expected to attend the G20 meeting in October hosted by Italy, one possible venue for such talks.

Mr Sullivan said no final decisions have been made.

Asked if he would call on Xi to push for an investigation in COVID-19 origins, President Biden on Wednesday told reporters: “We know each other well; we’re not old friends. It’s just pure business.”

With Vaccination Goal in Doubt, Biden Warns of Variant’s Threat

WASHINGTON — With the United States unlikely to reach his self-imposed deadline of having 70 percent of adults partly vaccinated against the coronavirus by July 4, President Biden on Friday stepped up his drive for Americans to get their shots, warning that those who decline risk becoming infected by a highly contagious and potentially deadly variant.

In an afternoon appearance at the White House, Mr. Biden avoided mentioning the 70 percent target that he set in early May and instead trumpeted a different milestone: 300 million shots in his first 150 days in office. But even as he hailed the vaccination campaign’s success, he sounded a somber note about the worrisome Delta variant, which is spreading in states with low vaccination rates.

“The best way to protect yourself against these variants is to get vaccinated,” the president declared.

His remarks came as his administration begins a final push to reach the July 4 goal over the next two weeks. Vice President Kamala Harris and Xavier Becerra, the health and human services secretary, were both on the road on Friday, trying to drum up enthusiasm for the vaccine. Ms. Harris went to Atlanta, where she noted that less than half of people in Fulton County, where the city is, had at least one shot, and Mr. Becerra to Colorado.

Mr. Biden took office in January warning of a “dark winter” ahead, as deaths were near peak levels and vaccinations were barely underway, and he has generally tried to portray the virus as in retreat as he approaches six months in office.

A fact sheet distributed by the White House in advance of Friday’s remarks noted that in 15 states and the District of Columbia, 70 percent of adults or more have received at least one shot. “The results are clear: America is starting to look like America again, and entering a summer of joy and freedom,” the document proclaimed.

But rates of vaccination, and of infection, are uneven around the country.

And while those who took a “wait and see” attitude are becoming more open to getting vaccinated, 20 percent of American adults still say they will definitely not get the vaccine or will get vaccinated only if it is required, according to a poll released last month by the Kaiser Family Foundation.

State health officials are trying to persuade the hesitant. In West Virginia, where just over a third of the population is fully vaccinated, Dr. Clay Marsh, the state’s coronavirus czar, said young people were proving especially difficult to win over.

“There was a narrative earlier in the pandemic that is really haunting us, which is that young people are really protected,” he said. “There’s a false belief that for many young people who are otherwise healthy that they still have a relatively free ride with this, and if they get infected, they’ll be fine.”

In Louisiana, where just 34 percent of the population is fully vaccinated and only 37 percent have at least a single dose, state officials announced on Thursday a new lottery for anyone in the state who had received one dose, with a grand prize of $ 1 million.

And in Wyoming, with vaccination rates almost identical to Louisiana’s, Kim Deti, a health department spokeswoman, said that “politicization is a concern” as officials seek to increase the number of people inoculated. But she said there were also other reasons for slowing rates in her state.

“We’ve had relatively low levels of Covid-19 illnesses statewide for a while now, which affects threat perception,” Ms. Deti wrote in an email. “With schools open all through the school year and most businesses open most of the past year, it has likely been harder for some people to see the personal need for vaccination.”

Speaking to students at a vaccination mobilization event at Clark Atlanta University in Georgia on Friday, Ms. Harris warned of the dangers of misinformation and framed the decision to get vaccinated as a way to take power back from the virus.

“Let’s arm ourselves with the truth,” she said. “When people say it seems like this vaccine came about overnight — no, it didn’t. It’s the result of many many years of research.”

When Mr. Biden set the July 4 goal in early May, he said meeting it would demonstrate that the United States had taken “a serious step toward a return to normal,” and for many people, that already seems to be the case. This week, California and New York lifted virtually all of their pandemic restrictions on businesses and social gatherings.

But the time frame is tight. An analysis by The New York Times shows that, if the rate of adult vaccinations continues on the seven-day average, the country will fall just short of Mr. Biden’s 70 percent goal, with 67.6 percent of American adults having had at least one shot by July 4.

As of Friday, 65 percent of adults have had at least one shot, according to data from the C.D.C. But the number of Americans getting their first shot has been dropping steadily, to about 200,000 a day from about 500,000 a day since Mr. Biden announced that June would be a “month of action” to reach his goal.

“I don’t see an intervention that could really bring back an exponential increase in demand to get the kind of numbers that we probably need to get to 70 percent,” said Dr. Marcus Plescia, the chief medical officer of the Association of State and Territorial Health officials.

Experts say that from a disease control perspective, the difference between 67 percent and 70 percent is insignificant. But from a political perspective, it would be the first time Mr. Biden has set a pandemic-related goal that he has not met. He has continually set relatively modest targets for himself and exceeded them, including his pledge to get 100 million shots in the arms of Americans by his 100th day in office.

“The 70 percent target is not a hard and fast number; not hitting it exactly does not mean the sky is falling,” said Jen Kates, the director of global health and H.I.V. policy at the Kaiser Family Foundation. “On the other hand, it has symbolic importance. There has been a lot of emphasis on getting to that point and not hitting it is a reminder of how difficult the remaining stretch is going to be.”

In the White House, aides to Mr. Biden now say they are less concerned with reaching the 70 percent target than with having the nation feel the sense of normalcy that the president promised. Only a few months ago, they noted, he spoke of small family barbecues on July 4, whereas now big gatherings are possible.

To prove the point, the White House is also planning a big July 4 celebration of “independence from the virus,” with fireworks on the National Mall here in Washington and a gathering of more than 1,000 military personnel and essential workers joining Mr. Biden, Ms. Harris and their spouses to watch the festivities from the South Lawn.

In announcing the 70 percent target, on May 4, Mr. Biden made a personal plea to all of the unvaccinated: “This is your choice. It’s life and death.”

A month later, in early June, he tried to rally the nation by declaring a “month of action,” and proposing incentives, including an offer of free child care for parents and caregivers while they receive their shots. He also promised a national canvassing effort resembling a get-out-the-vote drive.

Since then, White House officials say, nonprofits and community groups around the country have been holding testing and vaccination events, particularly in Black churches. Planned Parenthood has invested in paid phone banking and the Service Employees International Union has joined with the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials to host vaccination clinics and canvassing events.

Asked about the July 4 deadline this week, Jeffrey D. Zients, the White House coronavirus response coordinator, avoided saying specifically that the nation would reach the 70 percent threshold by that date.

“We’ve made tremendous progress,” he said. “Hundreds of thousands of people are continuing to get their first shots each day, and we’re going to get to 70 percent, and we’re going to continue across the summer months to push beyond 70 percent.”

Boris Johnson hits out at UEFA threat to pull Wembley Euro 2020 final 'We'll keep UK safe'

“Sensible accommodations” can be made with UEFA over whether VIPs and foreign fans will get access to England for key Euro 2020 matches, says Prime Minister Boris Johnson. He confirmed discussions with European football’s governing body were being held over the Euro 2020 semi-finals and final, which are due to be held at London’s Wembley Stadium. 

It has been claimed the games could be moved to Hungary, where COVID rues are more relaxed.

Under current UK guidelines, travellers arriving from ‘amber’ and ‘red-list’ countries must quarantine upon arrival for 10 days. The semi-finals of Euro 2020 will be on July 6 and 7, and the finals on July 11.

Asked if the government would allow quarantine exemptions for UEFA VIPs and fans, Johnson said: “We’ll do what we have to do to keep the country safe from COVID, that’s obviously going to be our priority.

“We’ll be talking to UEFA about what they want and see if we can make some sensible accommodations.

“But the priority obviously has to be public health.”

Ministers are tabling plans to allow around 2,500 UEFA and FIFA VIPs to skip the quarantine period in order to attend matches at Wembley stadium.

They would also be allowed to attend meetings and training sessions with the UK government.

It is understood ministers are fearful UEFA could move the semi-finals and finals of the Euro 2020 tournament to Hungary if they do not ease restrictions.

Hungary will have no restrictions for travel within the Schengen zone from next week and have hosted games with full stadiums so far at Euro 2020.

With the exception of England, Wales and Scotland, every national team competing at the tournament – apart from Turkey, who are on the ‘red list – is on the ‘amber list’.

According to The Times, cabinet ministers are aware any exemption for UEFA and FIFA could cause controversy as millions of Britons are unable to skip the restrictions.

Government officials are also concerned over the risk of a cluster of Covid cases, or the risk of infecting officials as Delta variant cases spike.

However, Boris Johnson is said to be drawn to the idea as the UK could boost joint Home Nations bidding efforts for the 2030 World Cup.

Aleksander Ceferin, UEFA president, also told the Government last week that Britain’s border restrictions were too strict compared with those in the EU.

He warned other European cities were willing and able to host matches scheduled to be played at Wembley.

On Thursday, another 195,565 first doses and 234,834 second doses of coronavirus vaccine were administered.

So far the UK has given out 42,216,654 first doses and 30,675,207 second doses, equalling 80.1 per cent and 58.2 per cent of the population respectively.

In total, the UK has seen 4,600,623 cases and 127,945 deaths.

How to Help Prepare Your Home for the Threat of Wildfires

Residents of the Western United States have been warned to prepare themselves, and their homes, for another punishing wildfire season.

A widespread drought has dried out the vegetation and land in several states, priming the region for increased wildfire activity, which typically begins in the summer months and can continue well into the fall.

“If your home is near a wildfire area, you should be concerned,” said Lynnette Round, a public information officer at Cal Fire, the firefighting agency in California, where 9,248 structures were destroyed by wildfires in 2020. “Wildfires can ignite at any moment, so residents need to be prepared now, ahead of time.”

Ms. Round says that Cal Fire recommends people begin preparing their homes as soon as early March.

Here’s a guide to making your home more resistant to wildfires.

By creating a defensible space, or “firescaping,” residents can carve a barrier between their home and flammable vegetation. A defensible space around the perimeter of the house should be well-irrigated and free of brush, vegetation and other materials that could fuel a fire. Adding fuel breaks such as gravel walkways or driveways can also help.

If you’ve got the space, Cal Fire recommends creating a buffer, of at least several hundred feet, with fire-resistant plants and noncombustible materials, like concrete or gravel. Homeowners should also move branches, firewood and garbage to other areas around the home.

“Having defensible space does make a big difference,” said Brian Centoni, the public information officer for the Fire Department in Alameda County, Calif.

And in California, residents are required to have a “defensible space” in certain high-risk areas.

But no matter how safe you think your home may be, you must leave if the authorities order you to evacuate.

Home hardening, a term used to describe the process of modifying a home to make it more fire-resistant, can help protect firefighters, too. The Federal Emergency Management Agency recommends plugging a garden hose into a water line so fire departments can have access to it. You should identify and maintain water sources like hydrants, ponds and pools and make sure they are accessible. You can also ensure that your driveway is clear for emergency vehicles and make sure your address signs are clearly visible from the road.

The next best thing to “firescaping” is filling your garden with fire-resistant plants, like french lavender or sage. These plants are also drought-friendly.

Cal Fire recommends curating your garden to be a fire-resistant zone, but cautions that just because plants like currant and aloe are less likely to catch on fire, that doesn’t mean they’re fireproof.

FEMA recommends regularly clearing your roof and gutters of dry leaves and other debris. To prevent embers from flying in, enclose or box in eaves, soffits, decks and other openings in the home’s structure; fine wire mesh can be used to cover vents, crawl spaces and the area underneath porches and decks.

If you are unable to make major changes to your house or landscaping, Carrie Bilbao, a spokeswoman for the National Interagency Fire Center, recommends conducting a quick assessment of your property and making small but critical changes such as removing flammable items — couch cushions and brooms that are stored outside.

“One thing that people do need to remember is that it’s not just an individual effort but a community effort,” Ms. Bilbao said. “You can do all you can for your own home but if your next-door neighbor doesn’t, the potential for fire to come and impact you is greater.”

Update Chrome NOW! Another serious threat to your browser has just been discovered

Chrome users are, once again, being warned to update their software without delay. Google has pushed a fresh upgrade to the world’s most popular web browser, designed to fix a bunch of bugs, including one that cyber criminals could be actively exploited to attack users.

The Californian firm says that it is keeping full details about the threat under wraps until the majority of users have updated to the patched version of Chrome. That should stop any new criminals finding out about the flaw, however, it’s troubling that bad actors are already using this problem for their gain. In any situation like this, known as “an exploit in the wild”, it’s vital that all users make sure Chrome is updated to the very latest version – number 91.0.4472.101.

The latest bug to hit Chrome was discovered by Sergei Glazunov of Google’s Project Zero and in a post on its blog page, Google said: “We are aware that an exploit for CVE-2021-30551 exists in the wild.

“Access to bug details and links may be kept restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix. We would also like to thank all security researchers that worked with us during the development cycle to prevent security bugs from ever reaching the stable channel.”

We expect to find out exactly what the threat could mean for users in the coming days but if you haven’t got automatic Chrome updates switched on on your PC then you must check for the download from Google straight away.

To update your browser manually go to Settings > Help > ‘About Google Chrome and then check to see which version you are running and if your browser needs an update.

Google also now shows if your browser is due an update with a warning appearing in the top right-hand corner of the window. This alert changes colour depending on how long ago the update was pushed out with it glowing red if you haven’t upgraded things in over week.

This isn’t the first time this year that Chrome users have been warned that their browser could be at risk. Back in March, Google released another vital update after the discovery of a bug that was so bad the company gave the vulnerability a high severity tag.

What made that threat so serious is that it was given a “zero-day,” rating which means that hackers already knew about it and how to take advantage of the vulnerability.

With over 60 percent of all web traffic being viewed on Chrome it’s no wonder that this browser is such a big target for hackers and cyber thieves.

Recent stats from NetMarketShare suggest that Chrome has a 69.74 percent slice of the market. That’s far ahead of its nearest challenger Microsoft Edge which has an 11.03 percent stake, with Mozilla’s Firefox in third on 6.46 percent.

Russia builds first STEALTH warship with ‘excessive’ weaponry in major threat

According to Russian media outlets, the Mercury naval corvette is close to being completed. The ship has been delayed for years, and is equipped with stealth technology to make it hard to detect by enemy vessels.

Two shipbuilding industry sources told state media outlet RIA Novosti the Mercury is nearing completion.

The sources told the outlet the Mercury corvette, dubbed Project 20386, is expected to be delivered to the navy as soon as next year.

They also shared the hull of the corvette has already been built.

Once launched, the ship will be Russia’s first fully stealth vessel, with a special shape minimising protrusions and crevices on its surface.

RIA Novosti reported Mercury will be armed with cruise missiles, anti-aircraft missiles and artillery.

It will also have equipment for hunting and destroying submarines.

In 2013, the Izvestia daily newspaper quoted a high-placed military source as saying that the ship would be too expensive, at up to 18 billion rubles (£175 million).

The military source also said the ship would be equipped with “excessive” weaponry it did not need, such as the Kalibr cruise missiles.

Moscow has invested heavily over the last decade in a rearmament programme meant to replace the army and navy’s Soviet-era weaponry.

However, Russia’s economy suffered after sanctions from Western countries in 2014, following Moscow’s annexation of Crimea.

Last year, Russian President Vladimir Putin stated the country would add new ships, vessels and weapons to its navy.

He said at the time: “The capability of our navy grows constantly.

“This year 40 ships and vessels of different class will enter service, and several days ago six more vessels for the far-sea zone were laid down at Russia’s three leading shipyards.”

He also announced a range of hypersonic weapons which will be installed in some areas of the navy, which he said would boost their combat capabilities.

DON’T MISS…

It comes as Mr Putin signed a law formalising Russia’s exit from the Open Skies arms control treaty, a pact that allows unarmed surveillance flights over member countries.

Russia initially hoped Mr Putin and US President Joe Biden could discuss the treaty when they meet later this month at a summit in Geneva, but Washington informed Moscow in May it would not re-enter the pact after Donald Trump’s administration quit last year.

The Kremlin said on Monday the US decision to withdraw from the treaty had “significantly upset the balance of interests” among the pact’s members and had compelled Russia to exit.

In a statement on its website, it said: “This caused serious damage to the treaty’s observance and its significance in building confidence and transparency, (causing) a threat to Russia’s national security.”

National Insurance: Britons issue warning as many receive arrest threat – 'so convincing!'

National Insurance scams have sadly become rife throughout the COVID-19 crisis, however, there will be some who have not yet experienced this. Scammers are stepping up their efforts to attack Britons, and it is important to be on guard against their tricks. The latest scam involves a phone call which people have reported receiving in recent hours and days.

If failing to do so, the caller says criminal proceedings will be started against an individual, and they could be forced to repay  thousands in fraudulent transactions.

As individuals are dealing with their National Insurance number, the caller may also ask a person to confirm this detail, as well as name, date of birth and address.

This is a simple way for the fraudster to harvest personal and sensitive information from the unsuspecting call recipient. 

It could go on to be used to try to gain access to accounts, or steal a person’s identity. 

It is important to note none of the information on this scam call is true, and so Britons should always put the phone down before they can be exploited.

People should never hand over any sensitive information, particularly as official Government organisations would never ask for a person to do so.

It may also be able to offer individuals advice about how to continue to protect themselves. 

Several individuals issued stark warnings about the National Insurance scam call via social media.

One person wrote: “I had it last week. Almost answered as it had a local code as the number.”

Another said: “All the ones I’ve had have come from numbers with the first eight digits the same as mine, oddly enough.”

A third individual penned: “Got yet another scam voicemail pretending to be NCA who were going to suspend my National Insurance number. These are annoying to me, but for someone who is vulnerable it could lead to ID theft. Always hang up, never press one.”

A fourth person warned: “Ignore them – it’s a scam! Your NI number doesn’t expire until you die.”

And one person who had sadly been victimised, warned others to stay alert.

They said: “This happened to me, and they ended up taking £100 from my account! They are so very bold.

“They were so convincing as well.”
