CALGARY, Alberta, Jan. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AltaLink has submitted a proposal to the Alberta Utilities Commission to refund an additional $350 million to Alberta electricity customers between 2021 and 2023. When combined with AltaLink’s previous rate levelization initiatives, the refund will reduce AltaLink’s portion of each Albertan’s electricity bill by an average of 11 per cent per year over the three-year timeframe. “Beginning in 2018, AltaLink committed to find ways to freeze its rates to electricity customers for five years and we found ways to deliver more than $1 billion in savings to our customers,” said Gary Hart, President and Chief Operating Officer of AltaLink. “With this additional $350 million refund, we have moved beyond our commitment of freezing our rates to reducing them by an average of more than ten per cent per year for the next three years.” As Albertans continue to navigate the economy brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and low energy prices, AltaLink is proud to do its part by providing the additional much-needed financial relief to its customers. “I am pleased to see an Alberta-based company looking for ways to support our communities through these difficult times. Our government is committed to working with AltaLink and other providers to pursue opportunities to protect customers and reduce the cost of energy delivery for Albertans,” Dale Nally, Associate Minister of Natural Gas and Electricity. Businesses across Alberta support AltaLink’s proposal. “Alberta’s job creators continue to face rising costs of doing business, particularly given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and energy price collapse. In recent Alberta Perspectives market research, electricity costs have been among the top concerns for the business community. AltaLink’s proposed refund initiative would provide much-needed relief to the struggling local businesses that play a significant role in our communities,” said Alberta Chambers of Commerce President and CEO Ken Kobly. The proposal must be approved by the Alberta Utilities Commission. Headquartered in Calgary, with offices in Edmonton, Red Deer and Lethbridge, AltaLink is Alberta's largest electricity transmission provider. AltaLink is partnering with its customers to provide innovative solutions to meet the province’s demand for reliable and affordable energy. A wholly-owned subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Energy, AltaLink is part of a global group of companies delivering energy services to customers worldwide.

Paul Butler highlights racial inequality experienced by Native Americans in his new novel CHICAGO, Jan. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Paul Butler’s new novel “The Way of the Buffalo” (published by Archway Publishing) offers a fictionalized inside look at the tumultuous age of flower power through the eyes of a Native American youth who can’t find meaning in a crazy world. During the ’60s and ’70s Jack is working in a minimum-security prison for young men when he meets Marlon — and Marlon has a story to tell. Spared the horrors of a hardened adult prison, he is forced to accept his current situation while telling Jack a bit about himself. After Marlon and his friends stole a car, they rolled it along while drinking and got into an accident. In the aftermath, people got hurt and Marlon fled. Even though he got away that night, the reservation police arrested him at his house the following morning. Marlon also tells Jack about life on his reservation that is home to two thousand American Indians. By day, his neighbors are all for peace and love; at night, when they get drunk, violence spreads. His life there forces Marlon to struggle with his identity while fighting racial inequality. “Economic and social injustice is a huge problem facing America today. Particularly with Native Americans and people of color, we need to explore solutions, evaluate them and then together, we must act upon a plan to move forward for all concerned,” Butler says. “There is hope going forward. When one is aware of problems there is a much better chance of solving or attempting to solve problems on reservations, in poor neighborhoods and underperforming schools where children are set up for failure. It does not have to be that way.” “The Way of the Buffalo” is available for purchase online at the Archway link above, at Barnes & Noble and on Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/Way-Buffalo-Paul-Butler/dp/1480895253. “The Way of the Buffalo” By Paul Butler Hardcover | 6 x 9 in | 368 pages | ISBN 9781480895270 Softcover | 6 x 9 in | 368 pages | ISBN 9781480895256 E-Book | 368 pages | ISBN 9781480895263 Available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble About the Author Paul Butler started his career as a substitute teacher in Chicago.

The U.S. government has asked Australia to scrap proposed laws that will make it the first country in the world to force Facebook Inc and Alphabet Inc's Google to pay for news sourced from local media outlets. In a submission asking the government to "suspend" the plans, assistant U.S. trade representatives Daniel Bahar and Karl Ehlers, suggested Australia instead "further study the markets, and if appropriate, develop a voluntary code." Under the law, which has broad political support and is currently before a senate committee, Google and Facebook will be subject to mandatory price arbitration if a commercial agreement on payments to Australian media cannot be reached.

Mikel Arteta hailed the “extraordinary” performances of his youngsters as Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka continued their thrilling run of form during Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Newcastle United. Smith Rowe and Saka have been crucial to Arsenal’s recent upturn in results. They combined again in a second-half demolition of Newcastle, with Saka scoring from another Smith Rowe assist. “I know what they are capable of doing,” said Arteta. “They put a smile on my face. Their performances were extraordinary. The expectation will be high with them so we have to take them through the right path. “It is a mixture of energy, passion and a little bit of immaturity at times, which is good as you do not play tense.” Arteta was also boosted by the return to goalscoring form of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who struck twice in the second half before leaving the field with a minor stomach issue. Aubameyang had scored just one league goal since early November before this meeting with Steve Bruce’s struggling side, and missed a series of chances before finishing twice after the break. “That is what he has done through his career and mentally you have to be really strong in order to do that,” said Arteta, whose side have now kept five consecutive clean sheets. “He has come out of a difficult period. “We have been missing his goals a lot. Today he came back and scored two, and contributed to the team to win and this is exactly what we need. I am really pleased for him.” Arteta added that Mesut Ozil’s medical and paperwork must still be finalised before the club can confirm his departure to Fenerbahce. “Mesut’s quality will be missed,” Arteta said. “He’s a very special player who had a very big history in this football club.” Newcastle are now without a win in seven Premier League games, their longest run without a victory since October 2018. Steve Bruce made eight changes to his starting line-up following their defeat by Sheffield United but his side lacked any attacking threat. Asked if he still feels he is the man to turn their form around, Bruce replied: “I have been in it [management] for a long time and managed to turn it around before. So yes, 100 per cent.” On his own position, he added: “I am trying to do the best I possibly can as always but you will have to ask others about that.”
