OTTAWA, May 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- To mark International Day of Families, an unprecedented, collaborative vision for Canada’s future was released, creating a foundation for a better tomorrow for generations to come. Inspiring Healthy Futures: A Vision for Canada’s Children, Youth and Families is the result of a months’ long collaboration with thousands of youth, parents, service providers, youth-serving agencies, cross-sector experts and researchers, and others who knew we had to do better for our children. “Inspiring Healthy Futures is a commitment that will be the foundation for leaders, organizations and governments to create a healthier, stronger future for and with children, youth and families in Canada,” said Emily Gruenwoldt, President and CEO, Children’s Healthcare Canada, and Executive Director, Pediatric Chairs of Canada, two of four founding partners of the initiative, which also includes the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Institute of Human Development, Child and Youth Health (IHDCYH), and UNICEF Canada. The urgency to identify shared priorities for action was pressing. According to UNICEF Report Card 16 (2020), Canada ranked 30th out of 38 wealthy countries in the health and well-being of its children – and that was before the COVID-19 pandemic. “As the pandemic began to unfold, it became clear that children, youth and families were being affected in unpredictable and enduring ways. We needed to make that visible to decision-makers, and we needed to bring together as many voices as possible, in order to be impossible to ignore,” said Lisa Wolff, Director, Policy and Research, UNICEF Canada. Inspiring Healthy Futures will take an unprecedented, collective approach to move the needle, forging a path for Canada to become a leader on the global stage and measurably improving the outcomes of children, youth and families. “Bringing this vision to reality will create a stronger Canada for children, youth and families today and for generations to come,” said Christine Chambers, Scientific Director, IHDCYH. “Our collective agenda will support meaningful action in the months and years to come.” “To know that a vision for my future, and the future of all young Canadians and their families has so much support gives me hope,” said Vivek Gill, member of IHDCYH’s Youth Advisory Council and part of the collaboration’s leadership team. “This pandemic has been really hard, and having a way forward means a lot to my generation.” You can read the Inspiring Healthy Futures vision: here About UNICEF Canada’s One YouthUNICEF Canada’s One Youth is working to make Canada the best place in the world to grow up in.

A Milan arbitral tribunal ruled on Friday in favour of Blackstone Group in a disputed sale of the headquarters of RCS, rejecting all claims made by the Italian publisher, a legal source and one with knowledge of the matter told Reuters. RCS Mediagroup, which publishes the influential daily Corriere della Sera, launched arbitration proceedings in late 2018 to nullify the 2013 sale of its historic headquarters in central Milan to Blackstone, saying the U.S. investment firm had paid too low a price at a time when RCS faced financial difficulties. Blackstone, which paid 120 million euros ($145 million) for the offices, has in turn accused RCS of falsely claiming that it still owns the building and of improperly blocking its sale to Germany's Allianz.

(Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Coast Guard has reopened the Mississippi River to maritime traffic, ending a shutdown that stranded more than 1,000 barges on the key conduit for agriculture exports.The river reopened as of 9 a.m. Central Time on Friday, according to the Coast Guard, providing relief to a queue of 62 vessels and 1,058 barges stranded on the north and south sides of the Interstate 40 Hernando DeSoto Bridge near Memphis, Tennessee. The waterway had been closed since Tuesday after a crack was found in a truss of the bridge.“The Coast Guard has determined that transit under the I-40 bridge is safe for maritime traffic,” Capt. Ryan Rhodes, Captain of the Port of Memphis, said in a statement, citing information provided by the Tennessee Department of Transportation.The crack in the bridge, found during a routine inspection, had stranded barges and cut off the biggest route for U.S. agricultural exports when the critical waterway is at its busiest. Covered barges full of grain and soy float from U.S. farm country to terminals in the Gulf of Mexico, while crude oil, refined products and imported steel also travel through sections of the waterway.Priorities for resuming vessel traffic are Department of Defense and red flag fuel barges, many of which are helping offset shortages created by the Colonial pipeline outage, followed by passenger boats and then southbound and northbound cargoes, according to Lt. Mark Pipkin of the Coast Guard’s Sector Lower Mississippi River.The reopening will be a “big help for American agriculture,” said Dan Basse, president of Chicago-based consultants AgResource, adding that he sees river operations returning to normal by mid next week.“The record large U.S. summer corn export program is not threatened,” he said in an interview. There “should not be any big snags as long as two-way traffic can persist.”The New Orleans Port Region moved 47% of waterborne agricultural exports in 2017, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The majority of these exports were bulk grains and bulk grain products, such as corn, soybeans, animal feed and rice. The region also supports a significant amount of edible oil exports, such as soybean and corn oils.“I don’t know if U.S. river transportation rises to the level of national security, but it’s importance to U.S. commerce and trade is such that I’m confident they’ll find a way to keep river traffic open,” said Ken Morrison, a St. Louis-based independent commodity trader. “There may be some partial delays at some point when they go in to repair the bridge for highway travel, but I expect that would be barge traffic allowed during daylight hours and not full closure.”Tennessee’s transportation department said it doesn’t have specifics on a repair plan for the bridge or a time frame for the work. Evidence of damage in the same area of the fracture was spotted by an inspector’s drone video in May 2019, the Arkansas Department of Transportation said Friday in a statement.“Hopefully the repair efforts will not cause restrictions in barge traffic,” said Joseph Glauber, a former chief economist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. “Grain and oilseed shipments to the Gulf pick up in the late spring and early summer, and weekly shipments have been running above the three-year average due to increased trade with China.”Of agricultural supplies on barges north of Memphis, the vast majority was corn.“Any time you have a halt to the flow of barges, there will inevitably be another ‘clog’ that occurs downriver,” said Bevan Everett, risk management consultant and grains market analyst at StoneX, adding that at most the delay in movement may extend through the weekend.“Since traffic is going to be open both ways, by Monday you probably won’t be able to tell this halt happened,” Everett said.The river reopening gives Midwest agricultural markets overseas access again as Chinese buyers have scooped up large amounts of corn in recent days, said Bob Yawger, head of the futures division at Mizuho Securities.“Infrastructure delays had the potential to scare them away or pause the pace of buying,” Yawger said. “A quick reopening of the river will stop that from happening.”(Adds update on bridge repair and commodity trader comments from ninth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

After a secondary stock offering netted AMC Entertainment Holdings (NYSE: AMC) some $428 million, one analyst thinks the theater operator's finances are increasingly solidifying and that could send its stock "sharply higher." A confluence of events caused B. Riley analyst Eric Wold to raise his price target on AMC to $16 from $13 and reiterate his buy rating on the stock. Back in January, AMC had been scrambling to cobble together $1 billion from lenders to stay afloat when it seemed likely it would declare bankruptcy, but it has been able to take advantage of a soaring stock price due to a massive short squeeze.

(Bloomberg) -- Marathon Petroleum plans to repurchase as much as $10 billion of stock after the U.S. oil refiner completed the sale of its Speedway fuel retail chain.Marathon said Friday it will begin a cash tender offer to buy as much as $4 billion of its shares, or about 10% of its current market value.”After the completion of the tender offer, we intend to execute on the remainder of our $10 billion repurchase authorization over the subsequent 12 to 18 months,” Chief Financial Officer Maryann T. Mannen said in a statement. In addition, $2.5 billion of proceeds from the Speedway sale has been allocated to reduce long-term debt.Marathon agreed in March 2020 to sell Speedway 7-Eleven Inc, a unit of Japan’s Seven & i Holdings Co., . for $21 billion. The transaction followed months of pressure on Marathon from investors including Elliott Management Corp. and D.E. Shaw & Co. , pressing the company to make sweeping changes to improve its performance. Elliott had pushed for Marathon to break itself up into three separate businesses: refining, retail and pipelines.(Corrects repurchase amount in first paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
