Toyota Employees Collaborate for Local Change Infographic

The idea: Create a grassroots employee-led fund to address social and racial justice issues spearheaded by Toyota’s 100 employee resource group chapters.

Toyota employee resource groups representing Asians, Blacks, Christians, People with Disabilities, Latinos, LGBTQ+, Parents, Pet Advocates, Veterans, Women, Young Professionals, as well as Environmental causes worked together to identify and direct funding to programs in their local communities.

«This initiative brought us together, providing a collective voice for good on issues that affect us all,» said Sandra Phillips Rogers, group vice president, chief legal officer and chief diversity officer, Toyota Motor North America. «It also gave our employees the opportunity to take concrete action within the communities where they work and live.»

The result:  A total of $475,000 in grants awarded to 48 nonprofits in 17 communities across the country, addressing critical needs such as food insecurity, healthcare access, economic self-reliance, youth mentoring, job training, and education.

One such nonprofit to benefit from the program is YWCA Charleston, in West Virginia. The organization is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, dignity and freedom for all. Funding will support their ongoing implicit bias training and outreach programs.

«Through this grant we can reach more people in the region and provide training and resources to increase understanding of how they can help eliminate racism,» said Debby Weinstein, chief executive officer, YWCA Charleston, W. Va.

Horario de verano: empiece la nueva temporada con seguridad

WASHINGTON, 10 de marzo de 2021 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — El domingo 14 de marzo marca el inicio del horario de verano, momento en el que los consumidores deberán adelantar una hora sus relojes. A medida que los consumidores dan la bienvenida a la nueva temporada, la Comisión de Seguridad de Productos del Consumidor de EE. UU.

WASHINGTON, 10 de marzo de 2021 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — El domingo 14 de marzo marca el inicio del horario de verano, momento en el que los consumidores deberán adelantar una hora sus relojes. A medida que los consumidores dan la bienvenida a la nueva temporada, la Comisión de Seguridad de Productos del Consumidor de EE. UU. (U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, CPSC) exhorta a las personas a que incluyan la seguridad en la primavera cambiando las baterías de las alarmas detectoras de humo y monóxido de carbono (CO).

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is an independent federal agency created by Congress in 1973 and charged with protecting the American public from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death from more than 15,000 types of consumer products under the agency's jurisdiction. To report a dangerous product or a product-related injury, call the CPSC hotline at 1-800-638-2772, or visit http://www.saferproducts.gov. Further recall information is available at http://www.cpsc.gov. (PRNewsfoto/U.S. Consumer Product Safety Co)

Las alarmas de humo y CO necesitan que se les instalen baterías nuevas cada año, a menos que cuenten con baterías selladas de 10 años. Las alarmas también deben verificarse cada mes para cerciorarse de que estén funcionando correctamente. Instale detectores de humo en cada piso de su casa, dentro de cada dormitorio y afuera de las áreas para dormir. Las alarmas de CO deben colocarse en cada piso de su casa y afuera de las áreas para dormir. Siga las instrucciones del fabricante para la ubicación y altura a la que se deben instalar. Si suena la alarma de humo o de CO, diríjase a un lugar seguro fuera de su casa y llame al departamento de bomberos.

«Las alarmas de humo y monóxido de carbono salvan vidas», expresó el presidente interino de la CPSC, Robert Adler. «Las alarmas que cuentan con baterías nuevas le dan a su familia un tiempo valioso para escapar de un incendio o de una acumulación mortal de monóxido de carbono en su casa».

De acuerdo con un informe reciente de la CPSC, hubo un promedio anual de casi 362,000 incendios involuntarios de estructuras residenciales, 2,300 muertes, más de 10,400 lesiones y $669 mil millones en pérdidas de propiedad de 2015 a 2017. Según los CDC, en EE. UU. aproximadamente 400 personas mueren cada año por intoxicación por monóxido de carbono.

Monóxido de carbono:

  • Conocido como el asesino silencioso, porque no se puede ver ni oler, el monóxido de carbono es un gas venenoso que puede provenir de diversas fuentes, como las plantas eléctricas (generadores portátiles).
  • Si elige una alarma enchufable de CO, asegúrese de que también cuente con baterías de respaldo.
  • Nunca opere una planta eléctrica dentro de una casa, garaje, sótano, espacio de acceso, cobertizo o en el porche cerca de la casa.

Incendio:

  • Para evitar incendios, solicite que un profesional inspeccione cada año sus electrodomésticos que funcionan con combustible, como el calentador y la chimenea.
  • Mantenga los calefactores portátiles alejados de cortinas, camas y cualquier elemento combustible.
  • Asegúrese de que el suministro de agua de los rociadores contra incendios esté abierto.

Prepare un plan de escape en caso de incendio:

  • Asegúrese de que cada habitación cuente con dos salidas; generalmente una puerta y una ventana, y un camino despejado hacia el exterior a partir de cada salida.
  • Cerciórese de que todos en la casa conozcan el plan de escape y practíquenlo dos veces al año.

Freedonia Analyst Weighs In On Goodyear Tire & Rubber’s Acquisition of Cooper Tire & Rubber

CLEVELAND, March 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Goodyear Tire & Rubber, the leading US-based manufacturer of tires and a leading supplier of other industrial rubber products, announced recently that it was acquiring Cooper Tire &…

CLEVELAND, March 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Goodyear Tire & Rubber, the leading US-based manufacturer of tires and a leading supplier of other industrial rubber products, announced recently that it was acquiring Cooper Tire & Rubber, the second-largest US-based tire producer. The transaction, which is expected to be completed in the second half of 2021, will create a firm with annual revenues of over $17 billion and a global network of over 50 manufacturing plants.

According to Freedonia Group industry analyst Matt Zielenski, the transaction provides significant benefits for both firms. «For Goodyear, the company will be able to greatly its position in the large replacement tire market – both in the US and elsewhere in the world. Rising automobile prices in the US will encourage many people to extend the lifespan of their vehicles before trading them in, which in turn will support long-term demand for replacement tires. Additionally, as automobile ownership increases in such nations as China, the market for replacement tires will also rise.»

Furthermore, a burgeoning Asian market for motorcycles will provide additional growth opportunities for the combined company, as both Goodyear and Cooper have extensive product lines in that market segment.

Zielenski noted that for Cooper, the deal allows that company’s products to be sold through Goodyear’s extensive global distribution network – such as the TireHub joint venture with Bridgestone, as well as at Goodyear’s chain of Goodyear-branded service stations – thus broadening its customer reach.  Additionally, Cooper will have access to Goodyear’s technologies, such as run-flat tires, thus potentially boosting the performance properties of its replacement tire offerings.

For more information on the global market for tires, see the Global Tires study from Freedonia.

WINDHAM, N.Y., March 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Windham Mountain announced today more than $4 million in capital improvements and key weekend and holiday capacity limits on lift ticket sales for winter 2021/22. Highlights of the capital expenditure include a revamped Kid’s Center for children’s snowsport programs as well as significant snowmaking automation projects and sustainability efforts. The Resort also announced that season pass offerings will be available March 12-14 at the lowest-available rates.

«Despite the challenges of the 2020/21 season, our guests have frequently cited their enjoyment of the resort with reduced numbers of guests on weekends and holidays. There’s a lot to be said for an elevated mountain experience that prioritizes quality service over large-volume crowds,» stated Windham Mountain President and General Manager, Chip Seamans. «With this announcement, we are committing to provide full access to season passholders, while also planning for daily limits on lift ticket sales,» he added.  Demand for season passes this year was at an all-time high, resulting in limits on pass sales as the season unfolded. 

Season pass and seasonal program sales will launch with a 72-hour sale from March 12-14, 2021. Returning for next season is the popular Windham Ultra Pass – combining the benefits of unlimited skiing at Windham Mountain with an Ikon Base pass that offers skiing privileges at over 40 mountain destinations world-wide. Also back is the Windham-only Double Diamond Season Pass, along with the value-oriented Sunday through Friday season pass. Seasonal instruction programs for adults and youth, along with the Windham Race Factory competitive youth offerings will be featured. 

With Covid-19 safety measures in place, guests are encouraged to make purchases on-line whenever possible. Walk-up and telephone orders via 518-734-4300 will also be accepted.

Just two and a half hours north of New York City, Windham Mountain is a place to get lost and found again, to find stunning adventure close to home, and to be reminded of how good it feels to be alive with family and friends in the fresh air. Boasting 285 skiable acres across 54 trails serviced by 11 lifts, the Resort offers six terrain parks, an award-winning snowsports school, lodging, on-mountain dining, an Adventure Park, a full-service spa, and much more.

OAKLAND, Calif., March 10, 2021 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Blue Shield of California, as the state of California’s third- party administrator, has made significant progress in supporting the state’s goal of providing vaccines to all Californians equitably, safely and as quickly as possible, especially for communities disproportionately affected by the pandemic.

The state’s enhanced provider network now includes more than 1,200 vaccination sites across California, represented by nearly 90 healthcare providers that include Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), community clinics, multi-county entities, hospital systems, medical groups, pharmacies and others.

Combined with the mega sites operated by the federal government, California is well on its way to exceeding the goal of creating statewide capacity to administer more than 4 million vaccinations a week by April.

«We are pleased with the tremendous progress Blue Shield has made in building capacity to deliver vaccinations to Californians quickly, safely and equitably,» said California Government Operations Agency Secretary Yolanda Richardson. «Due to the good work of the Blue Shield and state teams, as well as local public health leadership across the state, I believe California will be ready to administer the increasing supplies of COVID-19 vaccine we expect to receive from the federal government in the weeks ahead.»

The latest list of participating vaccine providers can be found at this link.

«Our goal is to save lives by helping to provide all Californians equitable access to the vaccines, especially in those communities hardest hit by the pandemic,» said Paul Markovich, president and CEO, Blue Shield of California. «We are working diligently with local, county and state officials, healthcare providers, and other important stakeholders to build a high-performing network that’s only constrained by the supply we receive. Together, we can defeat this pandemic, reopen our economy and more quickly return to normalcy.»

Below are more details on the enhanced network: 

  • More than 1,200 vaccination sites currently in the state’s enhanced provider network
  • All multi-county entities have contracted
  • OptumServe locations are being expanded
  • Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) in the Wave 1 counties have signed the third-party administrator network contract
  • Finalizing details on vaccination options for home bound residents and Californians with disabilities
  • Finalizing agreements with counties, including equity plans that engage community-based organizations

It is important to note that during the March transition period, the providers already administering the vaccine will continue to receive doses to ensure vaccines are available to as many Californians as possible. The aim is to enhance the vaccine provider network to increase its capacity and support the state’s goal to administer 4 million doses a week.

Blue Shield continues to work expeditiously to have as many eligible providers participate in the enhanced network including FQHCs, community clinics, multi-county entities, hospital systems, medical groups, pharmacies and others. Together, the goal is to build a network that reaches every corner of the Golden State, especially those communities that have been disproportionately affected by this pandemic.  

Blue Shield is a nonprofit health plan that’s answering the call by the state to support its vaccine distribution efforts to help save lives. The health plan is working closely with each county, their public health leaders, and state officials to build a vaccine network to help meet the state’s goal to ensure all Californians have access to the vaccines equitably, efficiently and as quickly as possible.

The health plan is taking on this effort at cost without making a profit from the state. Blue Shield is not charging the state for its staff time devoted to this effort. It will only bill the state actual expenses to support the network up to the limit of the contract.
