BOSTON, 2016-09-08 14:09 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Zipcar, the world’s leading car-sharing network, today announced that it has exceeded the million member milestone with operations in more than 500 cities and towns in eight countries across the globe. Zipcar’s community of over one million fee-paying “Zipsters” continue to choose Zipcar as their mobility service.

Zipcar’s members are a part of a global community committed to making cities better places to live through the reduction of personal vehicle ownership and congestion. Zipcar’s annual member survey revealed that nearly 10 percent of members get rid of a car after joining, and 32 percent would have purchased a vehicle without the presence of Zipcar. As a result of Zipcar’s global membership in eight countries, more than 413,000 vehicles are not on city streets, significantly reducing the potential congestion and parking challenges in the over 500 cities and towns in which Zipcar operates.

“For the past 16 years Zipcar has been driven by its vision of a world where car sharers outnumber car owners,” said Andrew Daley, vice president of marketing. “While we’re pleased to have hit the million member milestone, Zipcar views success by the collective impact our community of a million members have had on the globe. With less cars on the road, cities can build more green space, reduce parking and congestion challenges and overall create a better place to live.” 

Zipcar marks the million member milestone amidst double-digit growth in new members for the past two years. The company’s continued growth is largely driven by its commitment to the member experience and Zipcar’s expanding footprint, which now services more people in more places than ever before. Over the past few years, Zipcar has expanded to a wider network of locations across the globe, launched its most flexible service yet with one-way and inter-city options in select markets, unveiled a join and drive process for members looking to access a vehicle within minutes, and will launch a new Zipcar free-floating car-sharing model this fall. 

Zipcar provides its members on-demand access to a variety of cars in hundreds of cities, as well as colleges and university campuses throughout eight countries in North America and in Europe. Zipcars are available 24/7 for reservation via Zipcar’s mobile app, online, or over the phone.  Prospective members can join the service and start driving instantly on Zipcar’s mobile app.

Novel Preclinical Research Tools Provide Humanized Immune Response to Advance Immunotherapeutic Development, Live Webinar Hosted by Crown Bioscience19.10.2017 14:00Pressemelding

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crown Bioscience, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Crown Bioscience International (TWSE:ticker 6554) and a global drug discovery and development services company providing translational platforms to advance oncology, inflammation, cardiovascular and metabolic disease research, announces a live webinar to be presented by Dr. Michelle Mack, Director of Global Scientific Engagement, entitled "Beyond Syngeneics - Novel Tools for Addressing Human Specificity in Immuno-Oncology."

Crown Bioscience has generated innovative research models to address these obstacles early during preclinical drug development.

Perfectus Aluminum Inc. Responds to Trade Group19.10.2017 13:00Pressemelding

ONTARIO, Calif., Oct. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Perfectus Aluminum Inc. has issued the following: On October 12, 2017 the Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC), an industry group representing largely American aluminum extruders, posted to its blog a false narrative regarding a suit to which Perfectus Aluminum Inc. is a related party. The government is not "seeking unpaid duties from Perfectus for goods brought into the country." Rather, the government is attempting to use a 2017 Department of Commerce determination to assess retroactive antidumping duties on goods imported as early as 2011. It is discouraging that AEC would tout such an obviously egregious government overstep as a "victory" to their members and the industry: were it one of AEC's own members facing such an obvious violation of fair play and due process, it would rightfully argue that government overreach is a threat to manufacturers everywhere. In addition to the hypocrisy of the AEC's promotion of this case, its s
