SAN FRANCISCO Cheap Rangers Shirts , Jan. 21 (Xinhua) -- Alaska Native languages are most likely to be extinct or dormant by the end of the 21st century unless action is taken to save them, a new report released by a committee of the state in the most northwestern part of the United States said.


The Anchorage Daily News Sunday quoted the 2018 report of the Alaska Native Language Preservation and Advisory Council as saying that the Alaska Native languages are in a "linguistic emergency."


"If current rates of decline were to continue as they have been since the 1970s, all Alaska Native languages may lose their last fluent speakers by the end of the 21st century," the report said.


The council, established by the state legislature in 2012 to preserve and restore Alaska Native languages, urged Alaska Governor Bill Walker to make a state policy to preserve, promote and develop those languages.


At the time of statehood in 1959, there were 20 indigenous languages spoken within the boundaries of Alaska, all of which, in addition to English, were recognized as official languages of the state.


Most of these languages belong to one of two large language families -- Eskimo-Aleut and Athabaskan-Eyak-Tlingit.


Currently, all of those Native languages have "suffered an ongoing loss in the number of speakers over the past 40 years," the council said in its biennial report.


The Tsetsa'ut language lost its last fluent speaker in the early 1930s, and another language, Eyak, lost its last fluent speaker in 2008, it noted.


The council warned that the number of people who actually speak the languages has falled, though the Alaska Native population has grown since 1980.


While the central Yup'ik and Inupiaq are the two most spoken Alaska Native languages, other languages such as Haida, Tsimshian, Han, and Upper Tanana, now have fewer than 10 speakers each in Alaska, said the council.




BEIJING, Jan. 24 (Xinhua) -- The acting mayor of Beijing said Wednesday that the city is expected to hit the economic growth target of about 6.5 percent this year, while achieving visible improvement in economic structure, environment and innovation.


The annual government work report, delivered by Chen Jining at the opening meeting of the annual session of the Beijing Municipal People's Congress, set the GDP growth target at around 6.5 percent.


The GDP growth target is lower than the average annual increase of 7.1 percent -- an absolute figure of 2.8 trillion yuan (438 billion U.S. dollars) -- the capital has achieved in the past five years, Chen said.


He said that successful transformation of the economic development pattern, enhanced innovation capacity and better urban management are among the most significant achievements during the five-year period.


Nearly 19,000 applications for new production were rejected, thanks to an expanded restriction list. Nearly 2,000 manufacturing companies in the city were shut down, and around 600 regional and specialized markets were phased out.


Annual coal consumption has been reduced to 6 million tonnes from the previous 22.7 million tonnes. Over 2.16 million high-polluting old vehicles were phased out. A total of 11,000 factories were punished for environmental issues.


Chen highlighted deepened reforms and opening-up in sustaining the momentum.


The city's actual inflow of foreign investment topped the country at 24.3 billion U.S. dollars last year, with over 90 percent going to the service industry. Trade volume in services accounted for about one-fifth of the country's total.


BETTER CITY, NEW PROSPECTS


While pursuing high-quality economic growth, the municipal government has also set targets to ease its "big city diseases," such as traffic congestion and pollution.


In the battle against smog, Beijing will take high-emission vehicles off all roads in the city, according to the report. Currently, vehicles with high emissions are forbidden within the city's Sixth Ring Road


The average density of PM2.5 fine particulate matter in Beijing was 58 micrograms per cubic meter last year, meeting the target set by the State Council and 20.5 percent less than in 2016.


Another 500 manufacturing companies will be closed and more than 40 state-owned companies will be moved out of the city proper, Chen said in the report.


Plans to ease traffic jams include expanding urban rail, more bus lanes and renovation of bike lanes, according to the report.

css, said the report showed the government's confidence in seeking high-quality growth and "treating big-city diseases," which are key aspects of urban development.


Qin Hongling, another deputy, said the government report elaborated on changes she has witnessed herself in past years.


The Beijing University of Civil Engineering and Architecture, where Qin works, is located near the Beijing zoo market, a former wholesale center.


The market has been moved to nearby Hebei Province, with the site being transformed into a cluster of finance and technology businesses.


"The new cluster, together with the nearby planetarium and exhibition hall, represents the capital as the Chinese center of culture and technology," she said.
