Asian American Life:  October 2018
When New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio proposed a new plan last June to change the admissions process of the city’s elite specialized high schools, it kicked off a new round of controversy, especially amongst the Asian American communities. Correspondent Kyung Yoon provides an in-depth look at the racial politics of these entrance exams. Harvard is one of the hardest universities to get into. Out of 40,000 applicants, only 1,600 are admitted. While 6 percent of the U.S. population is Asian American, they only make up only 22 percent of Harvard’s class of 2021. One organization says Harvard discriminates against Asian Americans - and it’s raised a very divisive question on the admission processing and affirmative action. Correspondent Rayner Ramirez provides an in-depth report on controversial race-based admissions. Traditionally rock climbing has always been considered a male dominated sport with very few minorities — but the recent trend has shifted where more minorities particularly Asian Americans are excelling in this field. One Asian American woman has made it her mission to encourage others to scale new heights. Correspondent Minnie Roh meets with Shelma Jun, the founder of Flash Foxy which inspires women rock climbers and adventurers. Celebrity TV Chef, author and restauranteur Dale Talde appeared on Bravo’s popular show “Top Chef” in 2008 and 2010, and became known as the “bad boy” angry Asian guy. Since then, he’s opened up multiple restaurants in New York, New Jersey, and Florida. He’s known for serving an electric menu of Asian American dishes with a contemporary twist like pretzel pork and chives dumplings, or crispy oyster and bacon pad thai. He’s also the author of “Asian American: Proudly Inauthentic Recipes from the Philippines to Brooklyn". Host and correspondent Ernabel Demillo cooks up a storm with Chef Dale Talde, and learns his secret to success. Ernabel Demillo is the host of Asian American Life, a monthly half hour series about the fastest-growing immigrant group in the country, focusing on Asian Americans in the tri-state area from over 40 countries who speak more than 150 different languages and dialects. Every month, an Asian enclave and neighborhood within the tristate area is featured. Cutting edge issues like racial profiling and stereotyping are examined and explored. Successful Asian Americans who are forging new identities in business, politics and the arts are also be profiled. Asian American Life is reaching new frontiers in the quest for understanding and acknowledgment among tri-state Asian Americans.

The Bridge to Brilliance: How One Principal in a Tough Community Is Inspiring the World In 2015, Nadia Lopez was struggling as the principal and founder of Mott Hall Bridges Academy, a middle school in one of America's poorest communities.

She describes the struggles of principals and teachers working to teach students in our nation's toughest schools. She brilliantly chronicles the founding of her school, and the highlights the plight of excellent educators to provide opportunities for all American children.

BeYOU (Part 1)
The #BeYou Campaign Announces #IamSelfConfidence Entrepreneurial Workshop Helping to Develop Young & Aspiring Entrepreneurs NEW YORK- The #BeYou Campaign has partnered with YESalute to host the #IamSelfConfidence Entrepreneur's Workshop to inspire students and aspiring entrepreneurs who want to turn their innovative ideas into a reality. The event will take place at the Brooklyn Law School, 250 Joralemon Street in Brooklyn, New York on Tuesday, October 27, 2015 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm EST. School administrators; students, celebrated entrepreneurs, the mayor, borough presidents and city councilmen; campaign participants, ambassadors, sponsors; media, and other supporters are invited to join in on this enlightening experience. Special confirmed guest includes veteran United Nations Correspondent and Editor-In-Chief of & Publisher of Society & Diplomatic Review, Ms Gloria Starr Kins. Current Head of Development of Rainforest Entertainment and the former Editor in Chief of EBONY & JET Magazines, Mitzi Miller, will be the keynote speaker. Guests will be able to witness a young and powerful trailblazer share her story of struggles and triumph, participate in a 60 second pitch competition, and join in on an interactive panel discussion with celebrated panelists Marc John Jefferies, Martha Luna of MDollNYC, Jason William of YESalute, and Mitzi Miller of Rainforest Entertainment. The main topic of the event is self-confidence and entrepreneurship; this is a great platform for aspiring and beginning entrepreneurs! Overall, the activities planned for the #IamSelfConfidence Entrepreneur's Workshop will encourage guests to think creatively, think outside the box and ask questions about innovative business concepts and practices. Across almost all industrialized countries, unemployment rates are highest among people just out of college. In the United States, 17.2 percent of 20 to 24 year old men and women are out of work. Something needs to be done to help remedy this problem now and prevent it from happening in the future. Focusing on building awareness and interest in entrepreneurship at a young age as a way to increase the amount of young people that are employed, is the way to go! To help solve the unemployment problem among youth, special programs must be designed to provide capital to young and aspiring entrepreneurs. The “lack of experience” problem among people is more daunting. Business knowledge needs to be learned by doing. There is no good substitute for experience in preparing people to become entrepreneurs, except for providing an environment in which they can attain hands on experience. Developing experience happens over time, so starting a program early on will give girls and boys a jump start and provide them with the necessary training needed to be successful in the work environment. Essentially, #BeYou is an initiative that aims to spread the message of self-confidence by encouraging the youth to embrace themselves and pursue their dreams. With focus on a positive outlook, the campaign delivers motivational and enlightening seminars that provide guidance and discussion on empowerment, self-assurance, leadership, entrepreneurialism, and the pressures that young people of today face. Campaign founder Syrah Scott plans to penetrate New York City communities and insert the #BeYou Entrepreneur's Club into urban and suburban schools and eventually take the program national and international. The educational initiative has expanded internationally to China, Trinidad and Tobago, California, Florida, and Texas; it continues to grow every day. The #BeYou Campaign has managed to bring on 10 Brand Ambassadors and more that 30 sponsors. Syrah adds that, “our objective is to touch the hearts of the city, nation and world. We are requesting that supporters spread the word, donate, and join the #BeYou campaign initiative in its promising mission." Reporters who want to attend in person should contact Thebeyoucampaign@gmail.com.

Video: NY Mosque Vandalized, Qurans Trample on and Torn Up
CAIR-NY Calls for Hate Crime Probe of Vandalism Targeting Westchester Mosque (NEW YORK, N.Y., 9/18/14) -- The New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-NY) today called on law enforcement authorities and public officials to investigate a possible bias motive for vandalism at the Hudson Valley Islamic Community Center in Westchester County in which vandals damaged classrooms, drew obscene pictures and damaged Qurans. VIDEO: NY Mosque Vandalized, Qurans Trample on and Torn Up https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGVuXqFEUCU SEE: Police: Hudson Valley Islamic Center vandalized http://westchester.news12.com/news/police-hudson-valley-islamic-center-vandalized-1.9338927 "We urge law enforcement authorities and elected officials to investigate the possibility of a bias motive for this vandalism. This is a matter of public safety because the Hudson Valley Islamic Community Center is not only a place of worship, but also has a school with many young children,” said CAIR-NY Director of Operations Sadyia Khalique. She added: "With the rise in hate crimes in New York, public officials need to implement more community safety measures to ensure individuals and houses of worship are not targeted. We urge members of the New York Muslim community to take reasonable safety precautions and report any bias-motivated incidents to local police and to CAIR." NYPD: Hate Crimes Up Against Muslim, Jewish People http://www.northjersey.com/news/nypd-hate-crimes-up-against-muslim-jewish-people-1.1089828 This past weekend, CAIR-NY urged Muslim community members to exercise caution in public spaces after a Muslim family was allegedly attacked by a former Marine who shouted, “What are you doing in my neighborhood?

The 21 Most Lethal Places to Live in America
LIVESTRONG. COM tracked down some of the most dangerous communities in the U. S. LIVESTRONG.COM tracked down some of the most dangerous communities in the U. S. Photo Credit Gracie Wilson/LIVESTRONG.COMDeborah Day is a lifestyle and entertainment writer and editor. Former editor in chief of Maxim.com and executive editor of Premiere. com, she has been published on EW. com, TheWrap.com, Yahoo. com, LAmag. com and other media sites, as well as in Maxim, Interview and Time Out NY magazines.Is your city killing you? It’s a question you might not think to ask, but there are, in fact, a number of places in the U.S. where your health could be in danger. LIVESTRONG. COM reviewed a wide range of statistical data on public health and safety to determine the 21 places around the country where your chances of being sickened, maimed, eaten or flat-out killed increase dramatically.Some states that are repeat offenders on this list include California, Texas, West Virginia, Kentucky, Michigan and Florida.Read on to find out which locations are the worst for killers like pollution, lung cancer and even alligator attacks.St. Louis had the highest murder rate in 2014, but Chicago is on track to have the highest in 2016 with 313 murders as of June 26.With the highest murder rate, St. Louis is the U. S. city where a person is most likely to end up in a homicide detective’s file, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.The 159 total reported murders in 2014 was lower than Detroit’s 298 murders. Due to St.Louis’ lower population, it has a higher per capita rate, but Chicago reported the highest number of 2014 murders overall, and the city may rank higher once the agency compiles 2015 nationwide stats.So how do you avoid being murdered? There’s no easy answer, but violent crimes committed by adults peak at 10 p.m. ,while violent crimes by juveniles peak in the afternoon between 3 p. m. and 4 p.m. Plan accordingly. Flint, Michigan, not only scores high on the list of America’s murder capitals, it has also been the scene of a highly publicized environmental disaster.In 2011, the state government took over Flint, and new city administrators switched its water supply source to the Flint River to save money -- serving up lead-contaminated water to residents.In 2014, the city’s drinking water tested high enough to be considered toxic waste by the Environmental Protection Agency.High blood pressure and other cardiovascular problems, kidney damage and memory and neurological problems are among the effects, according to researchers from Virginia Tech who conducted the water survey.The World Health Organization reports that lead exposure attacks the brain and central nervous system, especially putting children at risk.Scientists now link childhood lead exposure with violent crime -- which may contribute to Flint’s future murder problems.The EPA added Gowanus Canal to the Superfund list in 2010. The 100-foot-wide, 1.8-mile long Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn is considered one of the most polluted waterways in the nation.The Environmental Protection Agency added the waterway lined with industrial plants to its National Priorities Superfund list in March 2010, meaning its contents could be harmful to human health and the environment.Not great news for the gentrifying South Brooklyn neighborhood’s young families and hipsters.Some of the ingredients in this toxic sludge, according to a Newsweek report: raw sewage, heavy metals (lead, iron, manganese, cadmium and zinc), a who’s who of carcinogens as well as arsenic at levels estimated to be 60 times the level considered harmful.Built in the mid-1800s, the canal’s cleanup cost is estimated at $500 million. West Virginia is going up in flames when it comes to tobacco smoking -- not to mention a number of other health problems.The America’s Health Rankings 2015 report from the nonprofit United Health Foundation shows West Virginia’s population, of which 26.7 percent of adults are smokers, is dead last on the index’s All Outcomes group.This ranking includes “premature death, poor mental health days, poor physical health days, cancer deaths, cardiovascular deaths, diabetes, infant mortality and disparity in health status.”With 34.3 percent of its denizens sucking down cancer sticks, state capital Charleston ranked the highest for smoking in the 2013 Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index.Related link: The 5 States That Get the Most (and the Least) SleepGiven its legacy as a tobacco state, Kentucky’s high lung c

2018 Ideas Conference - Full Event
For the past 15 years, the Center for American Progress has served as a creative engine for introducing bold solutions that advance progressive values on nearly every possible front. In the past year alone, we have defended the Affordable Care Act; outlined policies to create workplaces that support women and families; discussed the impact of race across a wide range of issue areas; and helped drive opposition to President Donald Trump’s tax plan. At CAP, we believe that ideas are the heart of all progressive change, but we also know that ideas aren’t enough. It takes grassroots advocacy and real leadership supporting those ideas to create true progressive change. As we celebrate our 15th year of big ideas, CAP is bringing together elected officials, policy experts, cultural influencers, and grassroots activists at the 2018 CAP Ideas Conference, where we will explore and unveil new ideas that can make America a place for every single one of us to thrive.

A National Perspective on Building Equitable Systems of Education & Well-being for All Children
Former U.S. Secretary of Education, John B. King Jr, now President & CEO of Education Trust, a national non-profit advocacy organization that promotes high academic achievement for all students at all levels, particularly for students of color and low-income students, will deliver the keynote address at the fall convening of the By All Means consortium. Former Secretary King will provide reflections on the importance of local work in the current national education climate in achieving the goal of ensuring all children have the opportunity to thrive. About By All Means The By All Means initiative is addressing the iron law correlation betweensocioeconomic status and education outcomes by partnering with visionary mayors and superintendents from Louisville, Kentucky; Oakland, California; Providence, Rhode Island; and Salem, Somerville, and Newton, Massachusetts. Each city has created a Children’s Cabinet — a cross-sector team made up of mayors, superintendents, health and human services directors, and community and civic leaders — to embark on a redesign process that is focused on creating integrated systems of opportunity and support from early childhood through to higher education. To accelerate this work, the Education Redesign Lab hosts the cabinets for five 2-day retreats over 2.5 years, bringing leaders to Cambridge to learn from national experts, Harvard faculty, and each other. This is the initiative’s fourth convening.

Rockland County Private Jewish Schools Accused of Ignoring Fire Codes  PART 2
WEST NYACK - When it comes to the dozens of safety code violations at many of Rockland's private schools, the blame is shared between school administrators and local and state officials, a News 12 investigation has found. Some even say they put their jobs on the line to speak to News 12's Tara Rosenblum during her five-month investigation into mostly Jewish schools that flunked crucial fire safety checks. Spring Valley Fire Inspector Ray Guarnuccio says he worries for students every day. He says it's only a matter of time before a child is hurt or killed at one of Rockland's many religious schools. "I don't know how parents allow their kids in these schools...you have to see the conditions in the classrooms," Guarnuccio says. Some of the schools that News 12 observed had hanging electrical wires, expired extinguishers and uncovered ceiling lights. Other schools were single-family homes that were seemingly converted into schools. The Ohr Yochanan Yeshiva in Suffern has more than 200 young boys arriving to study in a 4,000-square-foot family home. Rabbi David Kalisch insists his yeshiva is safe, and town inspectors have backed him up. The state says differently. According to a scathing report from January, five serious violations were found – including sprinkler system problems and far-too-narrow corridors. News 12 paid visits to 54 other private schools in the area and found a majority of them were reluctant to share their safety records or had reports that were outdated, expired or missing. Rabbi Moshe Schwab, who founded Yeshiva Degel Hatorah in Spring Valley, says he believes there are anti-Semitic undertones in the ongoing debate over fire safety. He says many yeshivas are well-intentioned, but might not be able to afford the costs of inspections. Other times, he says it's hard to even find an inspector to perform the task. Guarnaccio admits that more needs to be done. "All I can say is we are obviously doing the best we can but that's obviously not enough," he told News 12. The New York Secretary of State Cesar A. Perales issued an order last month that said Spring Valley has not complied with the minimum standards relating to periodic fire safety and property maintenance inspections. Guarnaccio and his part-time worker Frank Youngman say without more state funding to hire more people, their hands are tied. News 12 caught up with newly appointed Board of Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia about the pervasive problem in Rockland. She said it was "particularly not our roles at the state Department of Education to do inspections, so we've alerted people to which it is their responsibility." A responsibility, she says lies, with Secretary of State Perales. Perales told News 12 it's the Department of Education that can shut down unsafe school by revoking their certificates of occupancy. "We will assist the state Education Department in developing an immediate action plan," Perales added. Until that action plan becomes actual action, there will be dozens of schools out of compliance, overworked fire inspectors, hesitant state officials and tens of thousands of private school students at risk. As the result of this report and increased pressure from state lawmakers, News 12 learned Tuesday that the state Education Department has sent out -- for the first time -- a letter reminding all private schools about their annual fire safety requirements. The report was due last week. News 12 is told to expect an updated list of non-compliant schools in the next few weeks.

Session 1, "Television, Race, and Re-Visioning the American Dream”
From its inception, television has been invested in the "American Dream," deploying this "dream" in its marketing rhetoric, its programming logics, and its address to audiences. The American Dream has also been a powerful rallying call for mobilizing—as well as disavowing—racial struggle. What is the status of "the dream" today at a moment that has been proclaimed as both "post-televisual" and "post-racial"? This symposium investigated the fantasy of the American Dream as it intersects with dynamics of racial representation, ideology, and affect in the midst of changing understandings of television texts, audiences, and industries, with a collection of speakers from various areas of academic research.
