RosettaBooks to Publish Journeys: An American Story

RosettaBooks to Publish Journeys: An American Story, featuring 72 essays about immigration and American greatness from a variety of notable figures

NEW YORK, May 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Journeys: An American Story features a collection of first-person reflections of the American immigrant experience that are as diverse as the United States of America. Whether it was a few months, years, decades, or centuries ago, every family has a story of how they arrived in America. This collection of 72 essays, compiled by Andrew Tisch and Mary Skafidas, celebrates the vastness and variety of immigration stories in America.
In 2016, Andrew Tisch was asked to speak at a swearing-in ceremony for one hundred new immigrants held at the New-York Historical Society. In researching his own family’s journey to the United States, it hit him that almost everyone has a story to share. He and Mary Skafidas decided to solicit stories from friends, associates, and others to capture the quintessential idea of the American dream.
“This book is intended to stand as a reminder of America’s distinctive culture and history,” said Andrew Tisch.
“As we collected these stories, we realized how immigrants have defined the scope of American greatness,” said Mary Skafidas.
Journeys includes essays by Alan Alda, Tony Bennett, Michael Bloomberg, Cory Booker, Barbara Boxer, Elaine Chao, Andrew Cuomo, Nancy Pelosi, Dr. Mehmet Oz,  Marlo Thomas and many more.
Read the fascinating tales of extraordinary and everyday Americans, including:
  • A governor’s grandfather who dug ditches and cleaned sewers, laying the groundwork for a budding nation
  • How a future cabinet secretary crossed the ocean at age eleven on a cargo ship
  • A young boy who fled violence in Budapest to become one of the most celebrated American football players
  • The girl who escaped persecution to become the first Vietnamese American woman ever elected to the U.S. Congress
All profits from the book will be donated to the New-York Historical Society and the Statue of Liberty Ellis Island Foundation. Share Your Story: Visit www.journeysanamericanstory.com to share your own Journey story.

"It’s no secret that immigration has been a major reason behind America’s 242 (and counting) years of success.  The stories that Andrew and Mary share illustrate the positive and powerful impact that immigration has had in weaving the fabric of America.  ‘Journeys’ is inspiring — I encourage you to read.”  —Warren Buffet

“This highly readable collection of personal essays conveys the dreams and strengths of the immigrants who have come from around the world. It is a timely reminder of the essential role of immigrants in our national success story, including science, the arts, and economic well-being.  And you’ll likely find a reflection of your own family’s experience between these covers.”  —Abby Joseph Cohen, Senior Investment Strategist, Goldman Sachs

United States Steel Highlights Commitment to Sustainability in New Report

Will the new, somewhat chaotic economic environment lead to more and better  jobs for Americans? The following press release looks at the revival of the steel industry.

PITTSBURGH, May 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- United States Steel Corporation (NYSE:X) released its Sustainability Report 2017. The report highlights the company’s renewed commitment to transparency in its sustainability efforts, including recent innovations in operations, as well as corporate responsibility practices related to environmental stewardship, safety, governance, culture and ethics and compliance.
“At U.S. Steel, we know that being a good corporate citizen is not only the right thing to do, it’s also essential to our success,” said David B. Burritt, President and CEO of U. S. Steel. “We are proud of our employees’ accomplishments outlined in our sustainability report, and plan to build on them as part of our commitment to continuous improvement. We thank them for their hard work and sustainable improvements.” 
Key takeaways from the report include:
  • As a result of investments in innovation, U.S. Steel is the only American steel producer to have a third generation Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) approved for automotive customers. This product improves fuel mileage and helps customers meet increasing safety requirements.
  • The company’s efforts to continually seek opportunities to reuse and repurpose have resulted in the annual recycling of more than 7.5 million tons of materials including 2.9 million tons of scrap steel that is used to create new steel products.
  • The company announced its commitment to establish a greenhouse gas emissions reduction goal by the end of 2019.
  • U.S. Steel performed approximately 89% better than its peers when compared to the serious injury cases for the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) for Iron and Steel, in 2016, the most recent year for which BLS data is available.
  • The company is focused on fostering a high-performance culture characterized by accountability, fairness, respect and adherence to the highest ethical standards.
  • The company's inaugural Inclusion Survey provided direct feedback on opportunities to strengthen its culture around diversity and inclusion. Future surveys will allow the company to track progress and make adjustments so that employees continue to feel valued, respected and safe.
  • In 2017, U.S. Steel employees conducted more than 300,000 hours of training in areas including, but not limited to, safety, job skills and leadership.
