    Cambridge & Counties Bank launch as “Finance Partner” to the Federation of Historic Vehicle Clubs.Cambridge & Counties Bank to offer £10k bursary to Heritage Engineering apprentices. Cambridge & Counties Bank to design and deliver business modules for Heritage Engineering course.Historic vehicle industry is worth £5.5 billion to the UK economyThe classic car finance scheme offers loans from £63k to £1.5m with equity release considered.

    Cambridge & Counties Bank, who offer finance for classic car purchases, have announced they are to become official ‘Finance Partner’ to the Federation of Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC). The announcement comes on the back of the recent NEC Classic Motor Show in Birmingham, where key figures from the classic car community gathered on board a vintage bus to hear how the new partnership will address the skills shortage within the growing heritage engineering sector, which is currently worth £5.5 billion to the UK economy.

    The Heritage Skills Academy brings together experts from across the restoration industry who are committed to teaching the skills required to preserve and restore pre and post-war engineering heritage. The course is the only one of its kind accredited by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations (OFQUAL). Students that complete the full term will leave with a nationally recognised Advanced Diploma in Heritage Engineering with an option to specialise for a further year. The course covers a range of sectors, including classic motor vehicles, aviation, marine and steam. The main focus is on students aged between 16 and 18 years of age and the Academy is supported by the Government Trailblazer scheme.

    The partnership will see Cambridge & Counties bank, which launched its specialist classic car division in the spring, support the FBHVC’s Heritage Engineering apprenticeship scheme, held at the Heritage Skills Academy at Bicester Heritage.

    Cambridge & Counties Bank will provide a £10,000 bursary. The money will be made available via an application process to help with travel and accommodation.

    The support however is not just financial, as Cambridge & Counties Bank will also be designing and delivering the business modules within the curriculum as well. Managers and key subject experts from within the bank will be passing on training to ensure the apprentices are fully equipped with the skills and knowledge they need to run a business and manage finances.

    Mike Kirsopp, CEO of Cambridge & Counties Bank explains; “It is vitally important that we nurture and support skills for the future. Apprentices entering the world of heritage engineering will likely be working within small businesses or a business of their own and so equipping them with the understanding of finance, cash flow, accounting and asset management will be critical to their future success. We have the expertise and passion here at Cambridge & Counties Bank to support these students and play our part in preserving the future for historic vehicles.”

    David Whale, Chairman of the FBHVC said ahead of the launch; “Having Cambridge & Counties Bank as our finance partner will help the federation in its work to champion the cause of transport heritage in the UK. The bank’s approach to supporting our students through a balance of commercial assistance and the offer of training and apprenticeships reflects their obvious commitment to supporting the classic car sector and the thousands of skilled jobs it creates.”

    *The dog meat industry is increasingly unwelcome in Korean society, says HSI/Korea*MONTREAL, Nov. 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Taepyeong, the largest dog slaughterhouse in South Korea, has been shut down by local authorities, bringing the country one step closer to ending its brutal dog meat trade.

    Seongnam city council intends to build a community park on the land, creating a vibrant public space where once hundreds of thousands of dogs were slaughtered for human consumption.

    HSI/Canada rescuers are on the scene and report that conditions inside the slaughterhouse are shocking. They found a large number of empty wire pens that would once have held hundreds of dogs, as well as knives and the electrocution equipment used to kill them. Piles of dead dogs were also found abandoned on the floor.

    HSI/Canada senior campaign manager Ewa Demianowicz said: “It was deeply disturbing to see the inside of this slaughterhouse and to know that millions of dogs have died terribly here. It was a bleak, brutal facility, and a stark reminder of the unimaginable suffering caused by this industry. Thankfully, today’s events have brought us a giant step closer to ending the South Korean dog meat trade for good.”

    HSI/Korea’s Nara Kim stated: “Both as a Korean citizen and an animal campaigner, it was incredibly moving for me to a part of the historic closure of this notorious dog slaughterhouse. I shudder to think how many millions of beautiful dogs will have met their horrific fate at this place over the years. It was a stain on the city of Seongnam and we are so pleased to see it bulldozed. This really feels like a landmark moment in the demise of the dog meat industry in South Korea, and sends the clear message that the dog meat industry is increasingly unwelcome in Korean society.” 

    Taepyeong comprises six individual slaughterhouses, five of which will be bulldozed immediately; permission to destroy the sixth building was not secured in time for the closure however all its cages will be destroyed and equipment removed so that it is no longer operational.

    The closure of Taepyeong comes at a time when dog meat consumption is declining rapidly in South Korea, particularly among younger generations. A survey by Gallup Korea conducted in June 2018 Shows that 70 percent of South Koreans say they will not eat dog meat in future, and a series of recent moves to curb the dog meat trade reflects a society increasingly ill at ease with the industry. Most recently, last September, a Supreme Court struck down a lower court decision to allow dog electrocution (the favoured method of the dog meat trade), saying the method is "too cruel." 

    Over the past four years, Humane Society International’s pioneering program of dog meat farm closures has shone a global spotlight on the plight of dogs in the South Korean dog meat trade. HSI works in partnership with dog farmers who want to leave the increasingly controversial business, helping them transition to more profitable and humane livelihoods. So far HSI has permanently closed 13 dog farms and rescued nearly 1,600 dogs, who are flown to the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands to find new homes.

    Korea Animal Rights Advocates is an HSI/Korea partner group, and the two organisations recently teamed up to present a petition of nearly 1 million signatures to the President’s Blue House, calling for an end to the dog meat trade.

    Hyunji Kim of Korea Animal Rights Advocates says: “We have been making constant efforts to shut down the Taepyeong-dong dog slaughterhouse through investigations and putting pressure on Gyeonggi province and Seongnam-si. As Korea’s biggest, brutal, illegal dog slaughterhouse, Taepyeong-dong is notorious for supplying huge amounts of dog bodies to nearby Seongnam Moran traditional market. Its closure is an historical event, and hopefully may trigger the closure of other illegal dog slaughterhouses throughout the country. Until we achieve this, we really appreciate the support of both Korean people and global citizens who love animals for helping our campaigns to completely end dog meat in Korea.”

    Korea Animal Welfare Association has campaigned against the dog meat trade for many years. KAWA’s Iltaek Chae, says: “The slaughterers in Taepyeong have long been accumulating their wealth and a huge number of dogs have been killed over the years. It is hoped that the closure of this horrific dog slaughterhouse can halt the suffering of more dogs in the future, and help trigger the collapse of the dog meat industry in Korea.”

    KEMP, Texas, Nov. 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Larson Electronics, a leader in the industrial lighting sector, announced the release of a 200-foot anti-theft LED stringer with 10, 14-watt T8-style LED bulbs each measuring two feet in length. The LEDs produce 1,750 lumens of light each for a total of 17,500 lumens, do not require a ballast to operate and feature lightly frosted lenses to diffuse the light.The WAL-SL-10-20X-FTL3-LED-CS-120V 200-foot LED stringer with an anti-theft design is weather, impact and shock resistant, making it durable and able to withstand drops, falls or rough handling. Each LED T8 lamp is two feet long with a two-foot polycarbonate lens and is designed to operate in cooler temperatures. This unit can operate on current ranging from 100 to 277V AC for high voltage models or 11 to 25 V AC/DC for low voltage models without modifications.

    Jobsite thefts of lights are unfortunately common, but this stringer features locked lamps to discourage theft. Additionally, the LEDs have different circuits from standard fluorescent lamps, meaning if these lamps were stolen, they would not work without modification.

    This portable LED task lighting unit features 20 feet of 16/3 SOOW cable between each LED lamp. This fixture also has 25 feet of 16/3 chemical and abrasion resistant SOOW cord on one end that is fitted with an industrial grade 5-15P cord cap and five feet of 16/3 SOOW cord fitted with 5-15C female cord cap on the other end.

    This unit features a pair of drop hooks for easy mounting and is suitable for temporary construction sites, general maintenance, construction, aircraft interior, emergency shelter, long or narrow pathways, shipyards and food safe environments.

    _____________________

    (1) Time charter equivalent rates, or TCE rates, are defined as our time charter revenues, net, less voyage expenses during a period divided by the number of our available days during the period, which is consistent with industry standards.  Voyage expenses include port charges, bunker (fuel) expenses, canal charges and commissions.  TCE is a non-GAAP measure.  TCE rate is a standard shipping industry performance measure used primarily to compare daily earnings generated by vessels on time charters with daily earnings generated by vessels on voyage charters, because charter hire rates for vessels on voyage charters are generally not expressed in per day amounts while charter hire rates for vessels on time charters are generally expressed in such amounts.

    (2) Daily vessel operating expenses, which include crew wages and related costs, the cost of insurance and vessel registry, expenses relating to repairs and maintenance, the costs of spares and consumable stores, lubricant costs, tonnage taxes, regulatory fees, environmental costs, lay-up expenses and other miscellaneous expenses, are calculated by dividing vessel operating expenses by ownership days for the relevant period.

    *About the Company*

    Diana Containerships Inc. is a global provider of shipping transportation services through its ownership of containerships. The Company’s vessels are employed primarily on time charters with leading liner companies carrying containerized cargo along worldwide shipping routes. 

    *Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements*

    Matters discussed in this press release may constitute forward-looking statements. The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 provides safe harbor protections for forward-looking statements in order to encourage companies to provide prospective information about their business. Forward-looking statements include statements concerning plans, objectives, goals, strategies, future events or performance, and underlying assumptions and other statements, which are other than statements of historical facts.

    The Company desires to take advantage of the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and is including this cautionary statement in connection with this safe harbor legislation. The words "believe,""anticipate,""intends,""estimate,""forecast,""project,""plan,""potential,""may,""should,""expect,""pending" and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements.

    The forward-looking statements in this press release are based upon various assumptions, many of which are based, in turn, upon further assumptions, including without limitation, our management's examination of historical operating trends, data contained in our records and other data available from third parties. Although we believe that these assumptions were reasonable when made, because these assumptions are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies which are difficult or impossible to predict and are beyond our control, we cannot assure you that we will achieve or accomplish these expectations, beliefs or projections.

    In addition to these important factors, other important factors that, in our view, could cause actual results to differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements include the strength of world economies and currencies, general market conditions, including fluctuations in charter rates and vessel values, changes in demand for containership capacity, changes in our operating expenses, including bunker prices, drydocking and insurance costs, the market for our vessels, availability of financing and refinancing, changes in governmental rules and regulations or actions taken by regulatory authorities, potential liability from pending or future litigation, general domestic and international political conditions, potential disruption of shipping routes due to accidents or political events, vessel breakdowns and instances of off-hires and other factors. Please see our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission for a more complete discussion of these and other risks and uncertainties.
