St. Paul teens learn real world job skills through generous bike drive donations TopLine Keystone Bike Drive St. Paul teens learn real world job skills through generous bike drive donations from TopLine Federal Credit Union MAPLE GROVE, Minn., May 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On May 1, 2021 TopLine Federal Credit Union hosted a bike donation drive at all branch locations with donations benefiting Keystone Community Services’ Youth Program, Express Bike Shop. TopLine members dropped off their unused bikes and bike parts to help support local youth employment. Donations ranged from a single bike to truck loads. As the day wrapped up, TopLine members donated a record breaking 310 bikes! Keystone’s Youth Employment Program is a youth directed social enterprise, serving as a learning lab for young people entering the workplace, with all revenue reinvested back into the program. This youth development and entrepreneurial training program teaches young people real world job skills and provides employment opportunities as paid apprentices. Youth who participate in the program gain a valuable "first job" experience that emphasizes work readiness skills and an entrepreneurial spirit in a fun, engaging and team-building format. The multi-session curriculum consists of mini-lessons, group challenges and off-site field studies to reinforce concepts. Each apprentice is required to work 200-plus hours and at the end of the program becomes certified in bicycle repair and small business skills. “TopLine members and employees generously contributed hundreds of their unwanted bikes to support a local St. Paul community’s non-profit youth employment program,” says Tom Smith, TopLine President and CEO. “We are happy to see so many individuals came out to donate their bikes to replenish the much needed inventory as bike demand has increased, and the greatest benefit is that 100% of profits are reinvested back into the youth apprenticeship program, which gives teens a comprehensive employment opportunity to develop new skills and to gain real-world work experience.” “Thank you to all of the TopLine members who donated bikes and in turn supported our youth employment programs! Meaningful job experiences as a teen build the foundation for successful employment later in life. We are so grateful to the whole TopLine community for supporting youth in our community in this meaningful way,” says Mary McKeown, President of Keystone Community Services. Express Bike Shop is a full-service bike shop specializing in refurbished bikes, repair and new and used components. The bike shop, located at 1158 Selby Ave in St. Paul, accepts bike donations of all kinds and uses these donations to train young people on how to fix and refurbish bikes for resale. Plus, youth gain valuable experience operating a small business, like daily shop responsibilities including assisting customers, preparing the bank deposit, and ordering and stocking items in the retail area, as well as completing a Bicycle Repair Certification. Since 1995, over 400 young people have successfully completed a paid apprenticeship at Express Bike Shop. Visit www.exbike.com to learn more.

A Democratic lawmaker on Wednesday plans to interrogate former security officials from Donald Trump's administration on failures to avert the deadly Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, saying signs of looming danger had been in "plain sight." "The federal government was unprepared for this insurrection, even though it was planned in plain sight on social media for the world to see," said Carolyn Maloney, chairwoman of the House of Representatives Oversight Committee, at the start of a hearing examining the security failures. Maloney's committee will hear testimony from two men in high-ranking positions during the closing weeks of the Trump administration, former acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller and former acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen.

Many U.S. consumers are willing to pay $5,000 more than the sticker price of a new vehicle, as a global semiconductor chip shortage has led to a supply crunch at a time when demand for cars is soaring, a poll by research firm Cox Automotive found. The chip shortage has forced car manufacturers to idle factories and cut production, which has created a scarcity for new vehicles in the market, sending prices of both new and used vehicles surging. "More than 40% of car shoppers are willing to pay above manufacturer suggested retail price right now, and those willing to pay over MSRP are willing to accept a 12% premium," Cox Automotive said on Wednesday.

Premier Mateusz Morawiecki said on Twitter this week that the house, on the southwest outskirts of Paris, is “part of Poland’s history.” It said that Polish-born Marie Curie may have painted some ceiling designs herself, but there is no proof of that.

The UK-listed company, which owns Regal Cinemas, said its board will continue its dialogue with shareholders on executive pay matters following this. Advisory groups Glass Lewis and ISS had recommended shareholders to vote against the executive pay policy, with ISS concerned that the long-term incentive plan (LTIP) was not "appropriate" given the sector's exposure to the pandemic. The LTIP entails a bonus of up to 65 million pounds for its chief and deputy chief executives each, if performance and share price targets are met.

Scientists have recorded a rise in nuclear activity in the destroyed nuclear reactor at the Chernobyl power plant in Ukraine since it was covered over in 2017, but the rise has levelled off and does not exceed safety standards, staff said on Wednesday. Staff at the plant said the rise in "neutron flux density", which if significant could indicate an uncontrolled nuclear reaction, did not pose a threat of such an event based on their mathematical models. "After the establishment of a new safe confinement which has been in the designed position for more than four years, an increase in the neutron flux density is actually observed," scientists at Ukraine's Institute For Safety Problems Of Nuclear Power Plants said in a statement.
