    National Fish and Wildlife Foundation announces sixth round of grants from its Gulf Environmental Benefit Fund

    WASHINGTON, D.C., Nov. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) today announced the award of more than $280 million from its Gulf Environmental Benefit Fund (GEBF) to 21 new projects in the states of Alabama, Florida, Louisiana and Texas. Developed in consultation with state and federal resource agencies, the projects are designed to remedy harm and reduce the risk of future harm to natural resources that were affected by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

    Today’s announcement represents the sixth round of awards from the GEBF. With today’s announcement, NFWF has awarded nearly $1.3 billion dollars, or more than half of available funds.

    “One of the primary goals of the Gulf Environmental Benefit Fund is to provide lasting and future benefits to the types of natural resources impacted by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill,” said Jeff Trandahl, executive director and CEO of NFWF. “The 2018 awards advance that goal by improving coastal resilience and bolstering the long-term health of the Gulf of Mexico. By restoring critical coastal habitats such as marshes, oyster reefs and barrier islands, the projects supported by GEBF funding will benefit birds, fish, marine mammals and other wildlife while also reducing the risk of future harm from storms and other events that threaten local communities and economies.”

    NFWF created the GEBF in 2013 to receive and administer funds resulting from remedial orders in plea agreements between the U.S. Department of Justice and BP and Transocean. The plea agreements resolved certain criminal charges against both companies relating to the 2010 oil spill. Provisions within the agreements directed a total of $2.544 billion to NFWF over a five-year period to be used to support natural resource projects in each of the five Gulf States.

    As required under the plea agreements, NFWF consulted with state resource agencies, as well as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), to identify potential project priorities and funding needs. The consultations ensure coordination between NFWF’s GEBF and the agencies’ related activities under the Natural Resource Damage Assessment and RESTORE Act programs.

    The GEBF projects announced today complement those previously announced or currently under consideration by the Natural Resource Damage Assessment and RESTORE Act programs. Collectively, and where appropriate, these efforts are being coordinated and leveraged to advance large-scale Gulf Coast conservation outcomes and maximize sustainable environmental benefits.

    *ALABAMA*

    The NFWF Board of Directors approved the award of more than $48.7 million for eight new projects in the state of Alabama. The Alabama projects address high-priority conservation needs, including the continuation of efforts to improve fisheries management within the state’s coastal waters, protection and restoration of vulnerable shorelines and a barrier island, a priority water quality project and expansion of the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. Each of these proposals furthers conservation priorities identified through the coastal planning effort that was funded through GEBF in 2014. A list of the new 2018 GEBF projects in Alabama can be found here.

    The number of awards from the GEBF in the state of Alabama now stands at 32, with a total value of more than $195 million. All projects were selected for funding following extensive consultation with the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, FWS and NOAA. Additional information on all GEBF projects in Alabama can be found here

    *FLORIDA*

    The NFWF Board of Directors approved the award of more than $53 million for seven new projects in the state of Florida. The Florida projects address high priority restoration and conservation needs identified through the state’s recently completed GEBF Restoration Strategy. Projects include a large-scale oyster reef restoration project in Pensacola Bay, a conservation easement over coastal wetlands and forests in the Big Bend region to protect water quality and habitats, three key projects to help enhance sea turtle nesting, and shoreline stabilization of important wading bird rookery islands. A list of the new 2018 GEBF projects in Florida can be found here.

    The number of awards from the GEBF in the state of Florida now stands at 33, with a total value of more than $160 million. All projects were selected for funding following extensive consultation with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, FWS and NOAA. Additional information on all GEBF projects in Florida can be found here.

    *LOUISIANA*

    The NFWF Board of Directors approved an award of $161.4 million to support restoration of the Terrebone Basin barrier island system in the state of Louisiana. Specifically, the funding will support restoration and beach nourishment of West Belle Headland, Timbalier and Trinity Islands and allow the state to maintain this important stretch of barrier islands and plan for their sustainability into the future. More information on this project can be found here.  

    To date, NFWF has awarded more than $625 million to 13 projects in the state of Louisiana. The new project was selected for funding following extensive consultation with the Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority, FWS and NOAA. Additional information on all GEBF projects in Louisiana can be found here.

    *MISSISSIPPI*

    To date, NFWF has awarded nearly $140 million from the GEBF for 18 projects in the state of Mississippi. These projects were selected after extensive consultation with the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality, FWS and NOAA.

    The state of Mississippi continues to make significant progress in advancing previously-approved GEBF awards. As implementation continues, NFWF is working closely with the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality and its partners to identify high-priority conservation investments that remedy harm to natural resources affected by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill, and anticipates announcing new project awards in early 2019. Additional information on all GEBF projects in Mississippi can be found here.

    *TEXAS*

    The NFWF Board of Directors approved the award of more than $19.1 million for five new projects. The Texas projects address high-priority conservation needs, including the acquisition of significant coastal habitats and restoration work to address resiliency needs across the Texas coast in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. A list of the new 2018 GEBF projects in Texas can be found here.

    The total number of awards from the GEBF in the state of Texas now stands at 47, with a total value of more than $150 million. All projects were selected for funding following extensive consultation with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Texas General Lands Office, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, FWS and NOAA. Additional information on all GEBF projects in Texas can be found here.

    This year the Gulf Environmental Benefit Fund marked its fifth anniversary and the eight-year anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. A video and report documenting GEBF’s work in the Gulf to date can be found here. 

    *About the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation*
    Chartered by Congress in 1984, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) protects and restores the nation’s fish, wildlife, plants and habitats. Working with federal, corporate and individual partners, NFWF has funded more than 4,500 organizations and generated a conservation impact of more than $4.8 billion. Learn more at www.nfwf.org.

    NEW YORK, Nov. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Bank OZK (“Bank OZK” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: OZK) and certain of its officers.   The class action, filed in United States District Court, Southern District of New York, and indexed under 18-cv-10800, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons and entities, other than Defendants and their affiliates, who purchased or otherwise, acquired Bank OZK securities between February 19, 2016 through October 18, 2018, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”), seeking to recover damages caused by Defendants’ violations of the federal securities laws and to pursue remedies under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder, against the Company and certain of its top officials.If you are a shareholder who purchased Bank OZK securities between February 19, 2016, and October 18, 2018, both dates inclusive, you have until December 26, 2018, to ask the Court to appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class.  A copy of the Complaint can be obtained at www.pomerantzlaw.com.   To discuss this action, contact Robert S.

As of December 31, 2017, the Company operated through 253 offices in Arkansas, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, Texas, Alabama, South Carolina, California, New York, and Mississippi.

    Bank OZK provides a range of retail and commercial banking services to businesses, individuals, and non-profit and governmental entities.

    Throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operational and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the Company lacked adequate internal controls to assess credit risk; (ii) as a result, certain of the Company’s loans posed an increased risk of loss; (iii) certain substandard loans were reasonably likely to lead to charge-offs; and (iv) as a result, the Company’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

    PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- This year, U.S. troops deployed overseas and those protecting the United States southern border get a taste of home on Thanksgiving thanks to the efforts of Defense Logistics Agency Troop Support Subsistence supply chain employees.
    DLA sent more than 300,000 pounds of traditional Thanksgiving food to field kitchens, dining facilities and galleys throughout the Middle East, Europe, Africa and even to those here at home in Texas and Arizona.

    It takes a lot of coordination and attention to detail to make sure service members get the Thanksgiving meal they deserve, said Rich Faso, deputy director, DLA Troop Support’s Subsistence supply chain in Philadelphia. The planning begins in May and the work continues until the last deliveries are made.

    “The Troop Support Subsistence team is a dedicated group of employees who take pride in ensuring that deployed service members can experience an enjoyable holiday meal each Thanksgiving,” Faso said.

    While it is not exactly the same as being home, it is important for the troops to know that someone cares.

    “Many of America’s military men and women are away from home this Thanksgiving, making sacrifices to secure our freedom and to protect our southern border,” said Army Brig. Gen.  Mark Simerly, DLA Troop Support commander.  “The DLA Troop Support staff and I are excited about this amazing opportunity to provide them the very best Thanksgiving meal our country has to offer.”

    This year, service members serving away from home received:

    · 9,738 whole turkeys
    · 51,234 pounds of roasted turkey
    · 74,036 pounds of beef
    · 21,758 pounds of ham
    · 67,860 pounds of shrimp
    · 16,284 pounds of sweet potatoes
    · 81, 360 pies
    · 19,284 cakes
    · 7,836 gallons of eggnog

    The Subsistence team worked diligently with regional vendors both locally and across the globe to ensure that military food service professionals had what they needed to prepare a festive holiday meal for those away from home this Thanksgiving.

    DLA Troop Support supplies America’s armed forces with $17 billion annually of food, uniforms, protective equipment, medicine and medical supplies, repair parts, and construction and equipment.

    As the nation’s combat logistics support agency, the Defense Logistics Agency manages the global supply chain – from raw materials to end user to disposition – for the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, 10 combatant commands, other federal agencies, and partner and allied nations.

    New York Mills, Minn., Nov. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Recently, the Brunswick New York Mills Operation received a $10,000 matching safety grant from Minnesota OSHA.  The NYM Operation Safety Committee played a major part in the sourcing and writing of this grant application. 

    The purpose of the grant is to help businesses improve a process to be safer. The grant application was written for three  CartMovers™, which are motorized hand carts that can safely move up to 10 tons.  The carts are very compact for use in tight spaces and can handle inclines and other changes in a plant’s layout without excessive pushing or pulling. 

    The carts have handle bar controls with many safety features, including provisions for safely backing up.  They are multi-directional and electrically powered with rechargeable batteries.

    “These carts are designed to allow users to safely manipulate heavier loads and objects,” said Theresa Berns, Safety Committee member. “We believe using these carts will be significantly safer, and will result in better ergonomics to help further aid our employees.”

    The New York Mills facility participates in the voluntary consultation program with MN OSHA.  “We welcome OSHA into our workplace at any time; we tap into their resources for compliance and best practice questions, as well as their knowledge on specific safety training,” said Roger Cullen, Safety Manager.

    *Lubrizol to Present at the 14^th ICIS Pan American
    Base Oils & Lubricants Conference*

    * *

    CLEVELAND, November 19, 2018 - The Lubrizol Corporation announces that it will present at the 14^th ICIS Pan American Base Oils & Lubricants Conference in Jersey City November 28-30, 2018. Martin Birze, regional business manager, passenger car motor oils for the Americas, will present Enabling Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) Technology: Beyond API SN PLUS & ILSAC GF-6 on Tuesday, November 28 at 1:30 p.m. EST. This presentation will focus on the growth rate of TGDI engines across the Americas and the need to address the lubrication challenges associated with this technology, namely low speed pre-ignition (LSPI). The automotive industry's acknowledgment of the damaging effects of LSPI brought about the recent licensing of new API SN PLUS oils, specifically designed to mitigate this harmful, abnormal combustion event in TGDI engines. However, further research in the field has shown differences in the LSPI mitigating performance of different additive formulations throughout the oil drain interval. The presentation will address how Lubrizol has gone beyond the standard to evaluate LSPI propensity not just at fresh oil, but as the oil ages, and will illustrate that not all LSPI solutions are created equally.

    The population of Chinese white dolphins in the Pearl River estuary is “basically stable” despite nearly a decade of disruptive marine construction works on the world’s longest sea crossing and a near 20 per cent drop since 2005, according to the bridge’s management authority. Research commissioned by the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge Authority – a project-managing body jointly established by the three governments – indicated that dolphin numbers in the...
