IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — This September, CycleBar partners with Magee-Womens Research Institute (MWRI) and Women Who Rock™ to raise awareness and funds for life-saving women’s health research. September is National Ovarian and Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month, and throughout the month CycleBar will educate their riders from coast to coast about the work taking place at MWRI, specifically as it relates to cervical, uterine and ovarian cancer.

Founded in 2004, CycleBar is the largest indoor cycling brand by number of studios and offers a variety of low-impact, high-intensity indoor cycling workouts, which are inclusive of all fitness levels. CycleBar offers an immersive, multi-sensory experience in state-of-the-art “CycleTheaters,” led by specially trained instructors, enhanced with high-energy “CycleBeats” playlists and tracked using rider-specific “CycleStat” performance metrics. Head-quartered in Irvine, CA, CycleBar is backed by Xponential Fitness, the largest franchisor of boutique fitness brands.

“CycleBar’s purpose is to empower riders, staff, and the community to create positive change in not only themselves, but the world around them. That, coupled with the fact that over 80% of CycleBar’s members nationwide are female, it made perfect sense to partner with Magee-Womens Research Institute with their focus on research and advancements in women’s health.” said Trevor Lucas, President of CycleBar. 

Researchers at MWRI are seeking to understand the underlying factors that cause ovarian cancer to spread, as well as why it reoccurs after treatment. They are also examining why chemotherapy isn’t effective on certain types of gynecologic cancers. In addition, they are developing novel drugs that may directly target ovarian cancer stem cells. MWRI also supports numerous clinical trials for patients undergoing gynecologic cancer treatment.

“Thousands of women fight gynecologic cancers every year. At MWRI, we have laboratory research that seeks to understand what causes these cancers in the first place, and how we can prevent them from recurring. In the clinic, we have dozens of clinical trials exploring drug therapies, vaccine potential and the role immunology can play in improving treatment. We aspire to someday eliminate these cancers altogether – until then, we are dedicated to creating the most effective treatments possible and improving the quality of women’s lives,” said Michael Annichine, CEO of MWRI.

Women Who Rock will be powering a high voltage playlist featuring all female artists, which will be available for all riders and will be partnering with all parties for an online awareness campaign. Women Who Rock hosts an annual benefit concert featuring the best women in music, with a 100% female fronted line up. The event also includes The Women Who Rock Impact Award, interactive women’s health pop ups, a silent auction, VIP hospitality lounge, and a fully interactive beauty bar that has featured CycleBar the last two years. Proceeds from the benefit concert support Magee-Womens Research Institute.

“We’re so thankful for amazing partners like CycleBar, especially since health and wellness are at the core of what they stand for. Women Who Rock is excited to power a high energy music playlist featuring some of the best women in music, to Rock Your Ride during the month of September, and expand our partnership into 2021”, said Melinda Colaizzi, Founder of Women Who Rock.

VDO360 launches the new SEEME enterprise-grade personal webcam, with two microphone arrays, at an affordable, budget-conscious price.

“We created the SEEME for those that want a standard type of webcam/microphone unit with Full HD definition at a budget-friendly price,” says Dan Freeman, CEO at VDO360. “Our entire SEE line of products addresses the work-from-anywhere paradigm, and having a product like the SEEME fulfills the need for an economically priced solution that still has our enterprise-quality video.”

Video is captured using a wide-angle lens with a 75° field of view, while the two integrated microphones pick up sound within a 26′ radius with automatic noise suppression.

VDO360 continues R&D for the next generation of collaboration systems in consideration of not only the technology but how people are using it.

Our goal is to bridge the divide between how people use visual collaboration and the latest technologies available now and in the future. Innovation is key, from our entry into the market with the first affordable PTZ USB camera to our latest autonomous camera systems, we at VDO360 have consistently led the way in visual collaboration. The video experience provided by VDO360 products is unrivaled in quality. While many may think that “good enough” is fine, we feel this is why many users are unfulfilled when it comes to the other video collaboration peripherals available in the market today.

LEMONT, Ill., Nov. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Recently, employees at the CITGO Lemont Refinery held their annual food drive benefiting six local pantries: Bethany Food Pantry, Day Break Shelter, DuPage Township Pantry, Fairmont Food Pantry, Lockport FISH Pantry and Romeoville Community Pantry.

According to Dennis Willig, CITGO Lemont Vice President and General Manager, 2020 has been a difficult year for many and this was an opportunity for CITGO to stand in the gap and help the community.

It’s a fall tradition for employees to collect non-perishable food items in an effort to replenish community pantries prior to the start of the holiday season. The drive was another huge success.  In fact, donations doubled from the previous year and some employees and on-site contractor companies also made financial donations directly to the pantries.

“Catholic Charities, Diocese of Joliet is truly grateful for the generosity and compassion shown by CITGO. This is a difficult time for everyone and our food supply at the Day Break Shelter has been depleted over the past few months. CITGO has made a difference in the lives of each individual who receives the donated food,” said Glenn Van Cura, Executive Director.

About the CITGO Lemont Refinery
For more than 90 years, CITGO Lemont Refinery has employed more than 750 Chicago area residents on a full-time and contract basis in support of the local economy. In addition to producing high quality fuels for a large portion of the network of more than 5,200 locally-owned CITGO stations across the country, Lemont Refinery employees also make a major positive impact on the community. Each year, more than 2,500 volunteer hours and thousands of dollars are given in support of community programs such as Muscular Dystrophy Association, United Way and a variety of environmental and preservation programs. Operations at the Lemont Refinery began in 1925 and a major expansion doubled the facility in 1933. Over the years, new units were added to meet the demand for a better quality of gas for automobiles, aviation fuel for WWII, and the production of asphalt.

Construyendo sobre un largo historial de progreso ESG a nivel mundial, Diageo enfocará sus acciones de los siguientes diez años en tres áreas centrales cuidadosamente seleccionadas para alinearse con los ODS: fomentar el consumo positivo de bebidas; defender la inclusión y la diversidad, y ser pioneros en la sustentabilidad del grano hasta la copa.  

Ivan Menezes, Director Ejecutivo de Diageo comentó: Como empresa global, estamos comprometidos con hacer nuestra parte para proteger el futuro de nuestro planeta y abrir el camino para que otros lo sigan. Estoy inmensamente orgulloso de los logros que Diageo ha tenido a la fecha en materia de sostenibilidad y responsabilidad y este nuevo y ambicioso plan de acción nos retará aún más para lograr mejores resultados durante esta década crítica para llegar al 2030″.

Los aspectos más destacados del plan “Espíritu de Progreso: Sociedad 2030″ incluyen:

Fomentar el consumo positivo de bebidas

  • Para 2030, Diageo llegará a más de mil millones de personas con mensajes de moderación a través de sus marcas;
  • Cambiará la actitud sobre el beber y conducir de cinco millones de conductores y
  • Educará a más de 10 millones de personas sobre los peligros del consumo de alcohol en menores a través de “SMASHED”, nuestro galardonado programa de educación sobre el alcohol, que actualmente opera en todos los continentes.

Defender la inclusión y la diversidad

  • Diageo construirá sobre su destacado historial de inclusión y diversidad, estableciendo una ambición líder en la industria de tener un 45% de líderes de diversas procedencias étnicas para 2030 así como mujeres en un 50% de los puestos de liderazgo y
  • Brindará preparación y capacitación a más de 1.7 millones de personas para ayudar en la creación de un sector de hospitalidad más incluyente y próspero.

Ivan Menezes agregó: “Al establecer objetivos de género y etnicidad para ser alcanzados por la empresa a más tardar en 2030, creo que realmente podremos romper barreras y ayudar a darle forma a un negocio y una sociedad más diversos y exitosos a largo plazo”.

Ser pioneros en sustentabilidad del grano hasta la copa

  • Diageo se ha comprometido a trabajar hacia un futuro libre de carbón aprovechando el 100% de las energías renovables para lograr un objetivo de carbono neto cero en todas las operaciones directas y a trabajar con sus proveedores para reducir las emisiones de carbón indirectas en un 50%
  • Como primer paso en su ambición de carbono neto cero, las prestigiosas destilerías escocesas de Diageo, Oban y Royal, alcanzarán la neutralidad de carbono para fines del 2020 y Diageo espera alcanzar el objetivo de carbono neto cero en la India para 2025
  • Para 2030 Diageo garantizará que cada una de las bebidas que produce utilice un 30% menos de agua de lo que actualmente utiliza, y tendrá un impacto positivo neto sobre el agua en las nuestras cuencas y comunidades clave que sufren de escasez de agua
  • También entregará más de 150 proyectos comunitarios de agua alrededor del mundo, incluyendo el dar acceso a agua limpia, sanidad e higiene
  • Diageo apoyará a más de 150,000 pequeños agricultores con técnicas de agricultura para regenerar la tierra y fomentar la biodiversidad
  • Para 2030, garantizará que el negocio utilice el 100% del contenido reciclado en empaque de plástico y de que el 100% del material de empaque de Diageo sea altamente reciclable

Hoy, también se lanza “Soluciones Sostenibles”, una plataforma global de Diageo que proporcionará financiamiento sin capital a empresas emergentes y empresas de tecnología con el fin de desarrollarlas para ayudar a Diageo a continuar integrando la sustentabilidad en su cadena de suministro y sus marcas. Diseñada para dar soporte a pequeñas empresas y empresarios para desarrollar y comercializar sus innovaciones, Diageo compartirá sus recursos globales y experiencia para desencadenar el potencial futuro de estos socios.

Ewan Andrew, Directo de Sustentabilidad y Presidente de Diageo Supply & Procurement comentó: “Es vital que actuemos ahora si queremos mantener el maravilloso mundo en el que vivimos.  Estoy orgulloso de que ya hemos reducido a la mitad nuestra huella de carbón y vamos a esforzarnos aún más para lograr la neutralidad de carbono para 2030. Se siente muy bien que estemos liderando el camino junto con las destilerías Oban y Royal Lochnagar, las cuales alcanzarán la neutralidad de carbono para finales de este año”.
