Chicago is one of many cities where public transit faces an uncertain recovery. Essential workers and those reliant on public transit commuted on nearly empty trains and endured service cuts and mask mandates. The number of people using public transportation has increased since then, but it's still nowhere near what it was. Mobility data from Apple show that since last year, car travel has outpaced public transit during the pandemic. During that month, Transit data estimated 21.3 million trips on the Los Angeles Metro, up from 10.3 million in April 2020.

And in 2021, governments and cybersecurity experts around the world are on edge that they might be back again for the Tokyo Olympics. It sounds strange, but it’s true: Russian hackers have disrupted each of the Olympic Games since 2016, when Russia was suspended from full participation. In a public alert released Monday, the FBI warned that hackers could try a number of potential attacks to disrupt the Tokyo Games. That scheme, as well as Russian officials’ attempts to block investigators from looking into it, led to Olympic officials banning the country from fully participating in all Olympics between the 2016 Games in Rio and 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing. “Russian, North Korean, and Chinese state-sponsored adversaries likely pose the most significant threats to the Games,” the CTA found.

REUTERS/Thomas PeterChina will uphold the leadership of the Communist Party in Tibet to further its economic development, and guide Tibetan society in accordance to socialism, the region's top official said on Saturday. The Dalai Lama fled Tibet in 1959 following a failed uprising against Chinese rule. "First and foremost we must uphold the leadership of the Communist Party of China," said Tibet's Party Secretary Wu Yingjie at a news conference in Beijing. "Since the peaceful liberation of Tibet in 1951, everyone has discovered that only with party leadership can Tibet continue on this road of prosperous development," Wu said. China has rebuffed attempts by the CTA to reopen a dialogue since 2010, and Beijing maintains that the Dalai Lama is a separatist.

In 1959, Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama fled into exile, following a failed uprising against Chinese rule. The CTA and Tibetan advocacy groups have received a boost in international support amid rising criticism of China's human rights record, particularly from the United States. Tsering reiterated that when the 14th Dalai Lama passes he will only be reincarnated in a "free country", according to his wishes. "Why are they so concerned with the 15th Dalai Lama?" "The 14th Dalai Lama is still living and he wishes to go to China ... the Chinese government leaders need to learn about Buddhism first."

CHICAGO— Johnson & Johnson ’s Covid-19 vaccine has found a niche among organizations that work with the homeless, who say the one-dose shot is better-suited for a population that can be difficult to reach twice. The U.S. homeless population has soared during the pandemic. Shelters have become a source of spread as experts puzzle over how to stem stubbornly high infection rates despite an aggressive national vaccine rollout. In Chicago, the Night Ministry, a group that serves the homeless, has increasingly used the J&J vaccine since it was approved by U.S. regulators in late February. Or, for those able to pay a few hundred dollars a month to escape Chicago’s frigid winter, in transient hotels.

REUTERS/Thomas PeterSHANGHAI (Reuters) - The head of the Tibetan government in exile has visited the U.S. White House for the first time in six decades, a move that could further infuriate Beijing, which has accused the United States of trying to destabilise the region. Lobsan Sangay, President of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), was invited to the White House to meet the newly appointed U.S. Special Coordinator for Tibetan Issues, Robert Destro, on Friday, the CTA said in a press release. Tibet has become one of the areas of dispute between the United States and China, with relations between the world’s two biggest economies at their lowest point in decades. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused Beijing in July of violating Tibetan human rights and said Washington supported “meaningful autonomy” for the region. Beijing officials have since accused the United States of using Tibet to try to promote “splittism” in China.
