“Based on national lawd and international pacts such as the 1970 UNESCO Convention, to which Austria is a signatory, it is required that the items seized to be returned to the Islamic Republic of Iran as soon as possible,” CHTN quoted Mohammad-Hassan Talebian, deputy minister for cultural heritage affairs, as saying on Saturday. “According to experts’ assessments and available photos, the [seized] relics certainly belong to the geographical and historical realm of Iran [and they date back to the] first millennium BC, as well as the Achaemenid and Sassanid eras,” the official noted. “Among the above-mentioned objects, there are examples of bronze objects known as Lorestan’s pins, similar examples of which are being kept at the museums of Reza Abbasi and the National Museum of Iran.”

Using doubled up 600-thread count pillowcases or flannel pajamas, you could make a mask that provides up to 60 percent filtration. Other materials that can be used to filter out dangerous particles include HEPA filters, vacuum cleaner bags, and quilter’s cotton. But be careful of materials like household air filters that may contain fiberglass. They could still damage your lungs, even if they filter out virus particles. Earlier this month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) began advising Americans to wear face coverings in public to “slow the spread” of COVID-19. However, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reports the supply of surgical masks (and other protective gear) could run short during the pandemic — meaning little availability of masks for people in the United States.
