St. Paul teens learn real world job skills through generous bike drive donations TopLine Keystone Bike Drive St. Paul teens learn real world job skills through generous bike drive donations from TopLine Federal Credit Union MAPLE GROVE, Minn., May 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On May 1, 2021 TopLine Federal Credit Union hosted a bike donation drive at all branch locations with donations benefiting Keystone Community Services’ Youth Program, Express Bike Shop. TopLine members dropped off their unused bikes and bike parts to help support local youth employment. Donations ranged from a single bike to truck loads. As the day wrapped up, TopLine members donated a record breaking 310 bikes! Keystone’s Youth Employment Program is a youth directed social enterprise, serving as a learning lab for young people entering the workplace, with all revenue reinvested back into the program. This youth development and entrepreneurial training program teaches young people real world job skills and provides employment opportunities as paid apprentices. Youth who participate in the program gain a valuable "first job" experience that emphasizes work readiness skills and an entrepreneurial spirit in a fun, engaging and team-building format. The multi-session curriculum consists of mini-lessons, group challenges and off-site field studies to reinforce concepts. Each apprentice is required to work 200-plus hours and at the end of the program becomes certified in bicycle repair and small business skills. “TopLine members and employees generously contributed hundreds of their unwanted bikes to support a local St. Paul community’s non-profit youth employment program,” says Tom Smith, TopLine President and CEO. “We are happy to see so many individuals came out to donate their bikes to replenish the much needed inventory as bike demand has increased, and the greatest benefit is that 100% of profits are reinvested back into the youth apprenticeship program, which gives teens a comprehensive employment opportunity to develop new skills and to gain real-world work experience.” “Thank you to all of the TopLine members who donated bikes and in turn supported our youth employment programs! Meaningful job experiences as a teen build the foundation for successful employment later in life. We are so grateful to the whole TopLine community for supporting youth in our community in this meaningful way,” says Mary McKeown, President of Keystone Community Services. Express Bike Shop is a full-service bike shop specializing in refurbished bikes, repair and new and used components. The bike shop, located at 1158 Selby Ave in St. Paul, accepts bike donations of all kinds and uses these donations to train young people on how to fix and refurbish bikes for resale. Plus, youth gain valuable experience operating a small business, like daily shop responsibilities including assisting customers, preparing the bank deposit, and ordering and stocking items in the retail area, as well as completing a Bicycle Repair Certification. Since 1995, over 400 young people have successfully completed a paid apprenticeship at Express Bike Shop. Visit www.exbike.com to learn more.

Mortgage originators tend to not get a lot of respect from Wall Street analysts. The companies are shunned because they operate in highly cyclical business environments, which ebb and flow with changes in interest rates and their direct effect on mortgage rates. Mortgage rates had been dropping steadily throughout 2019 and 2020, but they began to rise again in January of 2021.

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., May 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CoreCivic, Inc. (NYSE: CXW) (the Company) today released its 2020 Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report detailing its steadfast response to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the third annual report issued by the Company since 2019. The report illustrates how the company worked to keep people safe while finding innovative ways to carry out life changing programming that equips individuals to succeed after incarceration. It shows the resiliency of front line professionals who worked tirelessly to protect human life while adapting to safe alternatives to in-person reentry programming. It also highlights the Company's progress in protecting the environment and promoting excellence in its corporate governance. “Like any enterprise worth its salt, we change to get better,” said Damon Hininger, president and chief executive officer. “We believe in constantly striving to be a better company and to find ways to make the most difference for the people we care for and our country as a whole. I could not be more proud of our team of prepared, energetic and always-eager-to-improve reentry professionals who introduced safe and socially-distanced alternative programming while conforming to evidence-based best practices.” The 40-page document’s release marks two years since the Company broke ground with the industry’s first ESG report. Previous reports documented substantial progress toward CoreCivic’s first-ever industry initiative to set and achieve five-year reentry goals, an effort that was completed in 2019. The 2020 report defines the Company’s continued commitment to evidence-based practices for reentry, informing future goals and enabling individualized interventions based on a person’s specific needs and their risk of future involvement in the justice system. While CoreCivic was forced to temporarily suspend some in-person reentry services in 2020 due to COVID-19, limiting its ability to deliver programming at the level it normally would, the Company laid the groundwork for a new, more illuminating approach to reentry. The new approach will continue to set goals for program delivery, which will be disclosed in future reports. However, it will also measure and track performance tied to effective outcomes for individuals in the reentry process, rather than using program completion rates alone. The report also outlines the Company’s pandemic response, illustrating how CoreCivic’s long-standing infectious disease management plans were adapted to the unique needs of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) was activated early in the pandemic and continues to operate 24/7 with state-of-the-art software to track and monitor developments in real time. A special Coronavirus Response Committee (CRC) was also assembled, including the Company’s chief medical officer, to manage response efforts and ensure alignment with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance. The Company also continually evaluated and adapted supply chains to ensure adequate supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) companywide. “While any loss of human life carries incalculable costs that millions of families around the world have felt during this crisis, I am grateful for the collective efforts of our facility leaders and staff who worked tirelessly to protect lives over the past year,” Hininger said. “From nurses and correctional officers to supply chain analysts, we put the right people in the right places, and their efforts were nothing short of heroic.” The report cites findings by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) that contractor-operated U.S. Marshals Service facilities like those operated by CoreCivic were safer, more accountable and more responsive in mitigating risk from COVID-19 than publicly operated facilities. Other topics covered in the report include: Development of 2021 human rights goals, which include implementation of a new human rights policy, facility-level risk assessments and delivery of training to more than 95% of employeesWork to accelerate diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) efforts, including the establishment of a DEI Council and Board-level DEI Committee, conscious inclusion training for leaders, and a comprehensive culture survey to gauge areas for improvementEnvironmental sustainability practices and goals, including smart water controls, LED retrofit projects and green design and operations techniques to reduce the Company’s carbon footprintCommunity support efforts, through which CoreCivic contributed more than $2.7 million to organizations working with formerly incarcerated people, victims of crime, underserved youth and those impacted by the pandemicPolicy advocacy for state and federal legislation that removes barriers to reentry for justice-involved individuals and reduces recidivism. The Company successfully advocated for, among other measures, restoring Pell Grants, voting rights and expungement opportunities for formerly incarcerated peopleAdvocating for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to have states cap intrastate Inmate Telephone Services rates to better enable families to stay in contact with incarcerated loved ones About CoreCivic CoreCivic is a diversified government solutions company with the scale and experience needed to solve tough government challenges in flexible, cost-effective ways.

Environmental groups urge government to proceed quickly with promised ban on non-essential single-use plasticsTORONTO, May 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Environmental groups applaud Canada's decision today to list “plastic manufactured items” on Schedule 1 under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA) and urge the federal government to move quickly to finalize a meaningful ban on non-essential single-use plastics by the end of 2021. Today’s action gives the federal government the authority to regulate plastic products to keep them out of incinerators, landfills and the environment, including a national ban on single-use plastic items, such as checkout bags, take-out containers, straws, stirrers, cutlery and six-pack rings. The listing is a critical step in Canada’s plan to address the growing plastic pollution crisis, enabling regulations that would reduce unnecessary plastic use, and support a non-toxic, low-carbon circular economy. Plastic pollution has been identified by the United Nations as the second most ominous threat to the global environment after climate change. Every year, more than three million tonnes of plastic waste is thrown away in Canada, with 91 per cent ending up in landfills, incinerators or directly in the natural environment. Canada has an opportunity to join other global leaders in the fight to end the plastic disaster. Many countries around the world have already banned certain single-use plastic items and 170 countries have pledged to significantly reduce plastic use by 2030. The European Union’s single-use plastic ban will be in force this summer. QUOTES: Ashley Wallis, Oceana Canada:“Minister of Environment and Climate Change, Jonathan Wilkinson’s decision to add plastics to CEPA’s Schedule 1 puts us one step closer to ending the fatal flow of plastic into our oceans. The federal government needs to use every tool in the toolbox to end the growing plastic disaster, including a strong ban on single-use plastic items. Ninety-five per cent of Canadians are concerned about the impact plastic pollution has on our oceans and 86 per cent support a ban on single-use plastics. The time to act is now.” Karen Wirsig, Environmental Defence: “Plastic pollution is a global crisis and it’s gotten worse during the pandemic, with a whopping 250 to 300 per cent increase in single-use plastics alone. The Canadian government must do its part and stand up to companies that profit from pumping plastics into our environment. That’s why we support the minister in standing firm on his intention to regulate plastics under CEPA. The clock is ticking. We’ve got to act now.” Lisa Gue, David Suzuki Foundation:“Now that the government has confirmed the listing of “plastic manufactured items” under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, Canada can move forward with regulatory action to tackle plastic pollution. We were appalled to learn that dozens of industry interests attempted to block this first step, and we’re grateful that the environment minister is standing firm." Dr. Elaine MacDonald, Ecojustice:“Plastic waste is entering the natural environment in huge volumes, and it’s the most widespread pollutant of our oceans, waterways and soil. There is mounting evidence of plastics contaminating our drinking water and food supply. We welcome the minister’s move to list plastics on CEPA’s Schedule 1 as an important first step in tackling this global problem.” Emily Alfred, Toronto Environmental Alliance:“Every community across Canada is facing the growing problem of plastic waste in our water, land and air. We can't recycle our way out of this, we need to prevent plastic waste and shift to a truly circular economy built on reusables. We're happy to see the federal government take this first key step towards banning unnecessary single-use plastics to address the plastics crisis.” For more information or to request an interview: Tammy Thorne, Communications, Oceana Canada, email@example.com, 437.247.0954 Environmental Defence, firstname.lastname@example.org, 647.280.9521 Brendan Glauser, Communications, David Suzuki Foundation, email@example.com, 604.356.8829 Sean O’Shea, Communications, Ecojustice, firstname.lastname@example.org, 416.368.7533 ext. 523 SOURCE: OCEANA CANADA, ENVIRONMENTAL DEFENCE, DAVID SUZUKI FOUNDATION, ECOJUSTICE, TORONTO ENVIRONMENTAL ALLIANCE
Several notable venture capital funds are supporting the full-suite DeFi platform's mission to make everyone their own wealth managerSINGAPORE, May 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As global interest in cryptocurrencies soars to an all-time high, DeFi (decentralised finance) has emerged as a force to be reckoned with during a time of increased economic instability. DeFi platforms and protocols open the doors for millions of unbanked people worldwide, enabling them to take control of their finances and explore the opportunities for wealth creation and revenue that were previously unavailable to them within the confines of the traditional banking system. Spherium Finance offers a comprehensive solution to DeFi participants and investors looking to take control of their assets and financial future, with an ecosystem of powerful tools and features such as decentralised money markets and a decentralised asset swap platform. The project recently announced that they had successfully closed their seed and private sale rounds, with a total of $3.3 million being contributed by various influential venture capital funds, cryptocurrency exchanges and angel investors. A vision shared by the industry's leading investors Amongst investors in the Spherium seed and private raise rounds were long-running cryptocurrency exchanges such as Gate.io and OKEX's Blockdream Fund, as well as reputable venture capital firms such as Raretsone Capital, NGC, GBIC, LD Capital, Swiss Founders Fund, AU21, Twin Apex Capital and others. With an overwhelming interest in the project's seed round, the initial stage raise was oversubscribed and allocation was transferred into private stage raise, which also filled quickly. Christian Mischler of Swiss Founders Fund said "We strive to invest into the most innovative and user-friendly projects on the market. When looking deeper into Spherium we've realized that we found such a project. We're happy to be early supporters and we're excited to see how the project develops and grows; we have no doubt that Spherium will gain a lot of traction in a short period of time." A one-stop DeFi shop With so many new and innovative products and tools being built in the blockchain and DeFi industry right now, things can easily become overwhelming for someone new to the space; the vast array of farming protocols, liquidity pools and yield generation platforms available today are great, but the user experience is often scattered at best with many located on different blockchains. Add to this the high transaction costs and confirmation time experienced on the Ethereum blockchain and it can be argued that DeFi is being held back from reaching its full potential. Spherium Finance brings together an array of powerful financial tools that make the best of DeFi available to anyone in the world. With long-running expertise in the fintech, law and AML/KYC industries, the Spherium Finance team also have deep knowledge in smart contract development and are utilising their knowledge to create a secure and trustless ecosystem that can make the near-infinite potential of DeFi available to millions of people around the world without access to traditional finance. The project is set to launch a public IDO in the coming days and will be using funds raised to further bootstrap the development of the platform's various products in the coming months. Tools currently available include a decentralised asset swapping platform, a non-custodial wallet and SphereComp, decentralised money markets module built on the Ethereum blockchain.
