Huntsville, AL, May 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Huntsville Botanical Garden announced today a new nighttime event coming this summer: Night Blooms, presented by PNC Bank. Taking place at the Garden from July 21, through Sept. 26, 2021, Night Blooms will illuminate the Garden with thousands of lights and botanical lanterns, allowing guests to experience the Garden’s natural surroundings like never before. “Night Blooms is a re-imagination of the Garden we know and love,” said Sue Wagner, chief executive officer of the Garden. “The plants and animals we encounter in the Garden every day have been reimagined as illuminated, technicolor and larger than life. The result is an experience that’s almost dreamlike, where guests have the chance to see their environment in a new light, quite literally. We are taking an ordinary walk through the Garden and showing just how extraordinary it can be.” The event takes guests on a one-mile walking journey through the Garden after sunset. As guests make their way through the Garden, they will discover vignettes of botanical lanterns integrated into the natural surroundings. Intricately designed and handmade by trained artisans, these lanterns bring plants and wildlife to life. Guests will find poppies, turtles, orchids, spiders, maple trees and more, all brightly colored and glowing from within. Additional lighting effects complete the immersive experience, further transforming the Garden’s landscape with light. Night Blooms has been made possible through the presenting sponsorship of PNC Bank. “PNC has a legacy of enriching our communities through philanthropic support of the arts, and as our local team continues to grow the bank’s presence in the state, we are excited to collaborate once again with Huntsville Botanical Garden to offer visitors another vibrant cultural experience,” said Nick Willis, PNC regional president for Greater Alabama. “Night Blooms is sure to provide families a place to build memories and celebrate the Garden as a treasured community asset.” The lanterns featured in Night Blooms are produced and provided by Hanart Culture. The Garden previously partnered with Hanart Culture to host the PNC-sponsored Chinese Lantern Festival in 2019. But with a reimagined experience and brand-new lanterns that have never before been seen in the south, Night Blooms is a new and different event. “Night Blooms is a brand-new experience, unique to Huntsville,” said Wagner. “You can’t find this event anywhere else besides here at the Garden.” Night Blooms will take place Wednesday through Sunday evenings from July 21, through Sept. 26, at the Huntsville Botanical Garden. Ticket prices range from $20 to $35 for adults and $12 to $23 for children, and all tickets must be reserved in advance for a designated entry time. Tickets will be available for purchase in June.

(Bloomberg) -- President Joe Biden’s administration plans to delay by two weeks a ban on new U.S. investments in certain Chinese companies, as officials draft guidance to clarify a Trump-era policy that confused Wall Street, according to three officials familiar with the matter.Investors face a June 11 deadline to buy shares in the companies or sell shares to Americans, while the White House works to clarify how the investment ban applies to subsidiaries of blacklisted companies, said the people, who discussed the plan on condition of anonymity.Treasury Department officials had previously set a May 27 deadline to clarify the scope of the investment restrictions. One of the people said the review of the investment ban may be completed by June 11, though the Biden administration’s policy won’t necessarily be published by then.Biden’s team has been examining former President Donald Trump’s executive order that was issued in November, banning U.S. investments in Chinese companies owned or controlled by the military. Biden’s decision on the ban has been closely watched on Capitol Hill, where lawmakers are eager for a tougher stance on Beijing.The administration’s position has been just as scrutinized on Wall Street, where Trump’s order caused confusion over whether the investment ban applied to an array of companies that may be connected -- either as a subsidiary or by carrying a similar name -- to those on the blacklist.The Biden review includes an evaluation of companies on the list, including three of China’s biggest telecommunications firms that the New York Stock Exchange delisted in January-- China Mobile Ltd., China Telecom Corp. and China Unicom Hong Kong Ltd. It’s unclear whether the administration will change the list, but Biden intends to keep up financial pressure on Chinese military companies, according to people familiar with the matter.As part of the review, national security aides, Treasury officials and the White House Counsel’s Office staff have also sought to bolster the legal case for restricting U.S. investment to prevent future litigation.Investors have one year to fully divest from any company once it is added to the list. For the original set of companies, the deadline is Nov. 11.(Updates with more detail on June 11 deadline beginning in second paragraph)More stories like this are available on bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Filing includes merger agreement reflecting CN proposal that was recently deemed superior by the KCS Board of DirectorsMONTREAL, May 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CN (TSX: CNR, NYSE: CNI) today filed with the Surface Transportation Board ("STB") a request to establish a procedural schedule for review of the voting trust that CN intends to use for its planned merger with Kansas City Southern (NYSE: KSU) (“KCS”). CN’s filing today also includes the merger agreement with KCS that was finalized on May 13, 2021, when KCS deemed CN’s proposal superior and announced its intention to terminate the previously executed March 21, 2021 merger agreement with Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. (“CP”). CN is confident in its ability to gain approval for the voting trust and ultimately close the combination with KCS, and looks forward to the STB promptly setting forth its timetable for reviewing the voting trust. In its application to the STB, CN requested that the STB adopt a procedural schedule for a brief public comment period on CN’s voting trust agreement. CN’s proposed voting trust structure has been public since April 26, 2021 and has identical terms and uses the same trustee as CP’s recently approved voting trust. CN’s filing with the STB also includes its merger agreement with KCS. CN is preparing a renewed motion for the STB to approve its proposed voting trust to be filed on or before Friday, May 21, 2021. In this filing, CN will show that the significant public benefits of the transaction can only be achieved through use of a voting trust, and that these benefits substantially outweigh any potential public interest harm. CN will also demonstrate that its strong balance sheet, cash flows and credit ratings profile provide certainty that CN has the financial integrity to satisfy the STB’s public interest analysis. CN is the better bid, better partner, better railway and best solution for KCS. CN’s proposal provides superior and more certain value for KCS shareholders and represents a pro-competitive solution that offers unparalleled opportunities for customers, employees, shareholders, the environment and the North American economy. CN will continue to engage productively and respectfully with the KCS Board to deliver a superior and pro-competitive transaction to CN and KCS’ respective stakeholders. For more information on CN’s superior proposal to acquire KCS, please visit www.ConnectedContinent.com. About CN CN is a world-class transportation leader and trade-enabler.

Every state earned a failing score, though index reveals promising signs of policy reform Index measures 50 states and Washington, D.C. against 17 essential practices for ensuring fines and fees are fairly and equitably appliedState of Washington earned the highest score, with a 54 out of 100; Wyoming scored a 3, ranked 51stFines and fees are too often used to generate revenue from people who can’t afford to pay them, trapping marginalized populations in the criminal justice system for minor infractions NEW YORK, May 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The National Center for Access to Justice (NCAJ) at Fordham Law School today announced the release of the Fines and Fees Index, a first-of-its-kind measurement of U.S. states’ performance against a comprehensive set of standards for ensuring fines and fees are applied in a way that is fair and equitable. Measuring the performance of the 50 U.S. states and Washington D.C. against 17 policies NCAJ believes every state should have in place to rein in abuses, the Fines and Fees Index creates a pragmatic, nonpartisan roadmap for reform. It is rooted in several core principles: fines should be proportionate both to the severity of an offense and to a person’s financial capacity; no one should be punished for “failing” to pay a fine they genuinely cannot afford; and states should abolish harmful practices including the pervasive “user fees” that are wielded to extract revenue from poor litigants. “Fines and fees are the ugly underbelly of the justice system, because state and local governments saddle the most marginalized people in our society with punishments they can’t afford,” said Chris Albin-Lackey, NCAJ legal and policy director. “Millions of low-income people get trapped in the justice system simply because they cannot afford fines and fees, and no U.S. state currently earns a passing grade for how it approaches this important issue.” The Fines and Fees Index is an extension of the NCAJ’s Justice Index, which debuted in 2014 and today was updated for the second time. The Justice Index provides data-driven benchmarks against which states are measured on best policies for civil access to justice. “We hope the Fines and Fees Index, with its vision of a rights-respecting approach to monetary sanctions, shines a bright spotlight on this national crisis of justice, offering insight into where and how improvements can be made,” said David Udell, NCAJ founder and executive director. The project, supported by Arnold Ventures, looked at thousands of data points to create scores on a 100-point scale. A team of attorneys at the law firm Hughes Hubbard & Reed helped lead the intensive legal research across every US state, and the research received additional pro bono support from the firm Stroock & Stroock & Lavan. The state of Washington, while still earning what can be characterized as a failing grade of 54, had the best score despite its many failings, including harsh punishments for people who struggle to pay their court debts. Wyoming, with the nation’s lowest score of 3, is doing almost nothing to protect litigants from abusive fines and fees. Other noteworthy findings include: The results transcend both geography and political leaning. For example, after Washington, the highest scores came from Oklahoma (Score: 49/Rank: 2nd), Rhode Island (48/3rd), New Jersey (46/4th), Massachusetts (42/5th) and Utah (41/6th), while Alabama (5/50th), Arkansas (6/49th), Kansas (7/48th), Delaware (8/47th) and Florida (12/46th) were among the worst performers.Delaware, the home state of U.S. President Joseph Biden, earned a “yes” score on just two of the 17 best practices. President Biden’s campaign platform, like that of most democratic candidates leading up to the election, specifically called out fines and fees as a serious issue needing attention.24 states -- including many that lean heavily Democratic -- still restrict the voting rights of people who have unpaid fines and fees debt, a practice that tends to disenfranchise poor and minority votersAreas of momentum in recent years included several states curbing or abolishing outright the harmful practice of suspending driver’s licenses for failure to pay fines and fees. More than 10 million Americans have suspended driver’s licenses because of unpaid fines or fees, according to the Fines and Fees Justice Center. Driver’s licenses loss often prevents people from working, meaning they cannot pay their fines and fees, creating a spiraling effect that leads to a mountain of debt and often, criminal entanglement with the justice system. There is a significant connection between fines and fees and policing -- sometimes called “policing for profit”. Following the 2014 killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, a U.S. Department of Justice investigation found that out of about 21,000 Ferguson residents, 16,000 had arrest warrants for unpaid fines and fees. This opened the nation's eyes to the fact that law enforcement practices too often focus not on public safety, but on revenue generation. “People are being punished in ways they can’t afford, as a fine that amounts to a nuisance for a person with money can be the complete undoing of a low-income person’s life,” said Albin-Lackey. “The good news is that every state could arrive at a much better and more rights-respecting approach to fines and fees simply by emulating policies other states already have in place.” To learn more about and explore the Fines and Index, visit ncaj.org/state-rankings/2020/fines-and-fees. ABOUT NCAJThe National Center for Access to Justice works to advance the principle that everyone should have a meaningful opportunity to be heard, secure their rights and obtain the law’s protection. It uses research, data and analysis to expose how the justice system fails to live up to that ideal and, all too often, functions as a source of oppression. NCAJ works to identify and promote practices that can improve access to justice, and measures existing laws and policies against those goals.

(Bloomberg) -- U.S. technology stocks rose on Tuesday as optimism that economic reopenings will boost growth outweighed concern about a pickup in virus cases in parts of Asia. Oil prices dropped amid a report that significant progress has been made to revive the U.S.-Iran nuclear deal.The Nasdaq 100 Index climbed for the third time in four sessions, boosted by gains in Tesla Inc., Amazon.com Inc. and Microsoft Corp. The S&P 500 fluctuated between gains and losses. AT&T Inc. plunged the most in the benchmark gauge after the company said it plans to spin off its media operations. Walmart Inc. rallied the most in six weeks after boosting its profit outlook.Stocks have been volatile after touching a record in early May as investors assessed economic growth prospects against a Covid-19 resurgence in countries including India. Minutes from the latest Federal Reserve meeting, due Wednesday, may offer clues on inflation pressure and hints of a timeline for tapering stimulus. Fed Vice Chair Richard Clarida said Monday that the weak U.S. jobs report showed the economy had not yet reached the threshold to warrant scaling back asset purchases.“What appeals to me is that investors are acting like investors again,” Abby Joseph Cohen, senior investment strategist at Goldman Sachs Group Inc., said in an interview on Bloomberg TV. “There is less emphasis on momentum and there’s more emphasis on relative valuation and which of the companies that have the strongest cash flow growth and are investing that cash flow growth.”Global investor sentiment is “unambiguously bullish,” Bank of America Corp. strategists led by Michael Hartnett said, citing the firm’s latest fund manager survey. Inflation topped the list of the biggest tail risks, followed by a bond market taper tantrum and asset bubbles, while Covid-19 was only in fourth place.West Texas Intermediate crude extended declines after the BBC Persian news channel, citing Russian diplomat Mikhail Ulyanov, reported that a major announcement may be made on Wednesday regarding talks to broker an agreement between Iran and the U.S. and revive the 2015 nuclear deal.
