American Paper Plate Coalition Petitions for Relief from Unfairly Traded Imports from China, Thailand, and Vietnam

American Paper Plate Coalition

The American Paper Plate Coalition (“APPC”), representing the majority of American paper plate production, today petitioned the U.S. Department of Commerce (“Commerce”) and the U.S. International Trade Commission (“ITC”) to investigate unfairly priced and subsidized paper plate imports from China, Thailand, and Vietnam. The antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) petitions detail unfair trade practices to sell paper plates at less than fair value and allege dumping margins up to 279%, as well as numerous subsidies. The petitions detail the injury suffered by the U.S. industry and its workers, and request relief in the form of special duties on all associated imports to offset unfair pricing and unfair subsidies. “Imports from these countries have used dumped prices and subsidies to continue to grow in the U.S. market at the expense of American producers and workers,” said Bill Biggins, President and Co-owner of APPC member Aspen Products, Inc. “Over the past three years, unfairly priced and subsidized imports have harmed American producers and taken jobs away from hard-working Americans.” The cases filed today cover all types of plates produced from any type of paper, regardless of color, decoration, shape and size. “American producers can compete with anyone in the world, as long as we’re all playing by the same rules,” said Robert Epstein, President and CEO of APPC member AJM Packaging Corporation. “Fortunately, our country’s trade laws are set up to support fair trade. On behalf of our employees, customers, and colleagues, we look forward to seeing those laws enforced and those who violate our laws held accountable.” The next steps in these investigations will be the initiation of Commerce antidumping and countervailing duty investigations by February 14, 2024, and a preliminary ITC determination by March 11, 2024. About the American Paper Plate Coalition The American Paper Plate Coalition, representing the leading U.S. producers of paper plates, is comprised of AJM Packaging Corporation of Bloomfield Hills, MI; Aspen Products, Inc. of Kansas City, MO; Dart Container Corporation of Mason, MI; Hoffmaster Group, Inc. of Oshkosh, WI; Huhtamaki, Inc., of De Soto, KS; and Unique Industries, Inc. of Philadelphia, PA.

Longing for a tropical getaway? Travel This Winter and Spring to America’s Caribbean Paradise, The United States Virgin Islands

YourUpdateTV

If you are longing for a tropical getaway, the U.S. Virgin Islands is home to some of the world's most stunning beaches and luxurious resorts. Recently, the U.S. Virgin Islands Commissioner of Tourism, Joseph Boschulte conducted a satellite media tour to share tips on how to best experience the U.S. Virgin Islands. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/K3EZnYGhDX4 About 40 miles east of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands comprise a United States territory located in the northeastern Caribbean Sea. The three main islands are St. Croix, St. John, and St. Thomas, where the capital of Charlotte Amalie is located. Perfect for leisure or business travel, the U.S. Virgin Islands features breathtaking, world-renowned beaches, an international marine industry, European architecture, and a burgeoning restaurant industry. No passports are required from U.S. citizens traveling from the U.S. mainland or Puerto Rico. U.S. Virgin Islands Marks Impressive Year-End Achievements and Sets Ambitious Goals For 2024 The U.S. Virgin Islands celebrated the end of 2023 with remarkable achievements and a vision for an even brighter future in 2024. Under the leadership of Joseph Boschulte, Commissioner of the Department of Tourism, the territory has made significant strides in several key areas. In a year-over-year comparison, the U.S. Virgin Islands has continued to see robust revenue from the shared economy industry, reaching an impressive $343.4 million in 2023, a slight reduction from the record-setting figure of $360.53 million in the previous year.

Additionally, the territory’s Revenue Per Available Room (RevPAR) continues to soar above regional standards. The U.S. Virgin Islands played a prominent role in the Caribbean's double-digit growth in tourism, with international arrivals projected to witness a remarkable 39% increase above 2019 levels in the fourth quarter of 2023. Also, extended stay visitors have seen a significant 25% rise. While 2022 presented some challenges due to cross-industry constraints, including pilot and airplane shortages, the end-of-2023 projections for 2024 remain positive. Seat capacity has increased from the continental U.S. to 23% in St. Croix and 21% in St. Thomas, largely due to the strategy of maintaining strong relations with major carriers. The Department of Tourism has expanded its strategic marketing efforts leading the way for the region into sports marketing garnering partnerships with renowned sports teams and entities, including the Boston Red Sox, New York Jets, Chicago Cubs, and Klutch Sports Group. Additionally, in the sports space the department has established ambassadorships with athletes who have familial ties to the territory including WNBA standout Aliyah Boston, Brooklyn Nets player Nic Claxton, Professional Golfer Alex Swain, and collegiate basketball standout Mervin James at Rider University. Looking ahead to 2024, the U.S. Virgin Islands will continue to strengthen its presence in the sports and entertainment arenas, as well as continue to build out cultural correlation with the Caribbean diaspora. The past year also marked successful elevation of the territory’s three Carnival celebrations featuring more revelers on each island and expansion of the Village Nights that spotlighted local talent including Pressure, Adam O, Star Martin and Karnage, international and Caribbean performers Davido, Machel Montano, Kes, Shenseea Koffee, Dexta Daps, Alison Hinds, Patrice Roberts and more. Carnival’s success has opened the territory to opportunities for cultural exchanges with other islands in the region and African countries. For the coming year, the U.S. Virgin Islands will increase concentrate on: · Airlift: Engage in ongoing conversations with airline executives to increase airlift from the U.S. mainland for winter 2024-25. Restoration of international negotiations with airlines in Denmark, Italy, and Canada is a priority. Our focus is on adding flights to St. Croix from the United States, Canada, and Europe. · Cruise: The partnership with the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA) will help us to increase cruise calls, create new experiences, collaborate with the local private sector, and generate employment opportunities. Cruise passenger projections indicate a 13% rise for 2024, with nearly 200,000 new passengers expected. · Marine: Strengthen partnerships with marine stakeholders, expand marine experiences, and attract businesses to set up headquarters in the USVI. Collaboration with the Economic Development Authority (EDA) on marine initiatives and working with U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Department of Homeland Security to support increased marine development are key goals.

The Shifters Collection: Digital Art Phenomenon Sold Out for $45 Million in Just 90 Days

Art Source

In a remarkable fusion of technology and art, the Shifters collection has created a significant buzz in the digital art world. This unique collection, which sold out at theshifters.io, offers an intriguing blend of history and futuristic concepts, encapsulating the essence of its four distinctive factions: Vortex, Magnitude, Velocity, and Pentagon. Brainchild of renowned digital artist Doctor Troller, the Shifters collection is a fascinating mix of folklore and modern technology. It narrates the story of ancient 40-foot-tall metal knights, originally created by the Kings of England as a defence mechanism. Rediscovered and revamped by the Soviet Union under Operation Shifter, these knights were transformed into technologically advanced beings, each faction embodying unique characteristics and capabilities. This innovative collection has resonated strongly with art enthusiasts, leading to its entire collection selling out for an astounding $45 million over a span of 90 days. Each Shifter, whether it be the tank-tracked Vortex, the helicopter-rotored Magnitude, the jet-propelled Velocity, or the multi-faceted Pentagon, has captivated audiences worldwide. Following this ground-breaking success, anticipation is intensifying for Doctor Troller’s upcoming collection, "Break Through", available at doctortroller.com. This new collection is expected to follow in the footsteps of its predecessor, with investors and art aficionados eagerly waiting. A limited series of 10 pieces, priced at $1 million each, will be exclusively available later this year. Doctor Troller's unique approach and style in the digital art landscape have drawn comparisons to some of the most iconic figures in contemporary art. His innovative Shifters collection, much like Banksy's provocative and politically charged street art, is reshaping the way digital art is perceived and valued. Additionally, the essence of his work echoes the styles of other celebrated artists like Shepard Fairey, known for his impactful "Obey" campaign and the Barack Obama "Hope" poster, and Damien Hirst, famous for his daring and often controversial pieces. These comparisons highlight Doctor Troller's growing influence and the significant role he plays in the evolving narrative of modern art. His work is characterised by a blend of mystery and a sharp commentary on modern society. This similarity has not gone unnoticed in the art community, with many drawing parallels between the artists' ability to captivate audiences and provoke thought through their art. Adding to the excitement and success of his Shoreditch Gallery in London, which opened late last year, Doctor Troller is launching The Doctor Troller Gallery, set to open in February, a testament to the growing interest and value in digital art collections. This expansion includes the opening of a second gallery in New York, further establishing Doctor Troller's presence in the international art scene. For those interested in the "Break Through" collection, a limited series of 10 pieces, priced at $1 million each, will be available. These exclusive pieces will be signed by Doctor Troller and come with a certificate of authenticity, making them a valuable addition to any investor’s collection. Early investors looking to be a part of this exciting new venture are encouraged to show their interest via the Contact Us page on doctortroller.com. The platform provides a seamless way for enthusiasts to stay updated and involved in the evolving world of digital art created by Doctor Troller.

Knippenberg, Patterson, Langley & Associates

Craig A. Knippenberg, LCSW, M.Div., a Denver-based mental health counselor with four decades of family therapy experience, and founder/host of the Legit Parenting podcast, announced today the release of his second book, Shame-Free Parenting ( Illumify Media Global ), a parenting guide for building family resiliency. In its first six weeks on Amazon, the book hit #1 in Kindle sales across all parenting books. In Shame-Free Parenting, Knippenberg demystifies many challenges associated with parenting today, which can result in over-protective child-rearing approaches. Now – more than ever – parents, children and families are faced with trying times as the world’s current events and social media platforms elicit a plethora of mixed feelings and emotions. Knippenberg believes that “ a pandemic of fragility has arisen amongst our children and teens, ” driven by modern-day culture and events. He also likens the smartphone to a modern pandora’s box that -- in combination with modern cultural issues, such as the impact and aftermath of COVID-19, school shootings, climate change, and persistent news coverage of war and social conflicts -- creates a state of chronic stress. He elaborates on these and other theories in the book. Loaded with judgment-free parenting wisdom and invaluable resources, Shame-Free Parenting inspires parents to build families capable of not only withstanding such challenges but also affording them ways to flourish amid them. In the book, parents will discover: How to let go of guilt/shame and the importance of being just this side of good enough A roadmap for understanding pivotal aspects of child-rearing, with tangible techniques for forging meaningful connections with children while championing their autonomy A holistic approach to emotions, boundaries and acceptance, all focused on progress A timely exploration of contemporary challenges – from the allure of TikTok and gaming to hard conversations about school shootings, the book features the essence and importance of structure, resourcefulness and steering young minds toward a driven purpose A call to action: embrace family spontaneity, adventure and community service as instrumental avenues for cementing ties and imparting core values “As a family therapist for more than 40 years, I’ve listened and witnessed. I have had the opportunity to gather substantial, firsthand accounts and information that has armed me with vast knowledge about navigating today’s ever-evolving landscape for children, teens and parents alike. I captured these experiences in my newest book and provided strategies and tips to help families connect and stay strong together,” Knippenberg said. “In Shame-Free Parenting, I help families better understand how children's brains work so they can foster both deeper connection and independence without guilt or shame. Building strong families is what healthy parenting is all about. It truly is the foundation of any successful family unit,” Knippenberg added. Michele Borba, ED.D., a best-selling author also endorsed by Harvard’s Robert Brooks, PhD, commented on Shame-Free Parenting: “Stellar! Given the modern cultural issues which face families, it’s imperative to focus on resiliency and problem solving.” Shame-Free Parenting is available at local bookstores or on Amazon. Legit Parenting is available through the Apple Store or on Spotify. Knippenberg’s first book Wired and Connected: Brain-Based Solutions To Ensure Your Child’s Social and Emotional Success, released in 2019, provides brain-based solutions for ensuring social skills and emotional success of children. About Craig A. Knippenberg Craig A. Knippenberg, LCSW, M.Div., is a Denver-based mental health therapist who has garnered significant expertise working with children and families throughout his four decades in private practice and while serving as a school consultant for 40+ years.
