The local leaders were able to represent the AAPI perspective of Charlotte and North Carolina to the other delegates who mostly come from states with traditionally large Asian American populations like California and New York. The event, the AAPI Delegates Meet & Greet, was held at Emzy Sushi inside of the Duke Energy Center in uptown Charlotte. Over 250 people came to enjoy the delicious food that was prepared by the restaurant's owner, John Chen, to meet important AAPIs from all over the country, and to hear distinguished AAPI government officials speak about the convention and Asian Americans today. A record number of AAPI delegates, over 300, attended the convention to nominate the Democratic Presidential candidate this year. Although the AAPI Delegates Meet & Greet was held at the same time as several other meetings, Emzy sushi, about a 10 minute walk from the Charlotte Convention Center, was packed with people from the beginning to the end. As John Lin, a blogger for the Asian American interest blog 8asians.com put it, "this was a who's who of Asian American leaders." The speakers included Mark Keam, a member of the Virginia House of Delegates representing the 35th District; Chris Lu, Cabinet Secretary and Advisor to President Obama, Chris Lu; Steve Rao, first Asian American elected to public office in North Carolina, Morrisville Town City Council; Congresswoman Dr. Judy Chu, Chairwoman of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC) and Former Secretary of Transportation and former Mayor of San Jose, California Norman Mineta. Also in attendance was the first Asian American mayor of San Francisco Ed Lee; Congressional candidates Otto Lee and Jay Chen; City Council members Evan Low and Ash Kara (for Campbell and San Jose, California, respectively); Mike Fong, East Area Director and Senior Liaison to Asian Pacific Islander Community to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa; and California State Controller, John Chiang, who is running for California State Treasurer in 2014. The speakers educated us on the history of Asian Americans in our government. Norman Mineta, the "Godfather of Asian American politics," has been a part of most of it as it happened. Remarking on the past, he said, "I am just thrilled because the first convention to in 1972, there were two (AAPIs) delegates, both of the California delegation. There were over 300 (AAPI) delegates in this convention and that is the product of the hard and toiling work of a lot of people." Asian Americans have had an increasing presence in Congress as well. Currently there are 41 members of the congressional APA caucus. When it was formed in 1994, there were only 4 members. "There were so few of us that we could meet in a phone booth" said Secretary Mineta. More are to come. Today, there are a record number of Asian Americans running for Congress, most of whom are Democrats. Asian Americans are breaking through in appointed positions and in the White House as well. In this administration, there are more Asian Americans in highly appointed positions than in any previous administration including eight federal district and circuit judgeships and three presidential cabinet members. These positions are important because as Karen Narasaki, president and executive director of the Asian American Justice Center points out, "that's where the action is." Chris Lu, one of the highest ranking Asian Americans in the White House as liaison between President Obama and his cabinet members says, "When there's a more inclusive America, Asian Americans succeed." Chris Lu was a former classmate of President Obama in Harvard Law School and points out that it was Asian American pioneers that came before that broke through the glass ceiling. "It speaks to the strength of this country," he said toward the end of his speech. It is no mystery why Asian Americans are becoming a larger player in American politics. According to the most recent census data, there are 18.3 million AAPIs in the country. 4.7 million AAPIs are registered to vote. AAPIs are the fastest growing group in the nation, particularly in the battle ground states. Congresswoman Judy Chu, the first Chinese American Congresswoman said that "this means we can make a huge difference in the election. AAPIs have huge potential to make a difference in this election because we have visible leaders in the White House, in Congress, in the state legislatures, and in the local communities." This is important because it allows the Asian American perspective to be heard at the top levels of this country. Secretary Mineta reminded us that "if you're not at the table when decisions are being made, you are going to be left out. There are issues in education, immigration and health, all of these issues that we have our perspective continue to page 3 Tel : 910-864-7110 5318 Yadkin Rd., Fayetteville, NC 28303 Fax : 919-876-4237 CP : 704-737-7203 Office: 704-849-7295, 704-844-8794 Chip Park / CharCom Properties Leasing & Marketing Tel : 704-523-2228 Fax : 704-523-1134 E-mail : CharCom@aon.com 1374 Drexmore Avenue Charlotte, NC 28209 Commerical Sales Lee Wood ProStead Realty Licenced in NC & SC *House & Business, , *Investment Consulting Mobile 704-400-7744 FAX 704-220-0881 Michellehan.firstname.lastname@example.org 1125 East Morehead St#201, Charlotte,NC, 28204 NC & SC Broker / Realtor KELLER WILLIAMS Ballantyne Area E-mail: Brendajshi@kwcharlotte.com 704-502-2726 Knowledge is Power! or current resident Pre-sorted Std.

The speakers urged everyone in attendance to not just vote but to get involved and become a part of the political process by getting others to vote, by getting informed on the issues and possibly running for office themselves, even in places like North Car- The Asian Herald olina. Mark Keam, the first foreign-born elected official to the VA general assembly said that "this is a new South, where we can work together. Where Asian Americans get activated, they can make a difference." Steve Rao, the first Asian American to be elected in North Carolina said that we can "rise to the greatest of heights." A city council member in Morrisville, just outside of Raleigh, he shared what his grandfather told him with tears in his eyes when he won his election: "It's a small step for a family in a small office, but it is one big step for all AAPIs in North Carolina. Now that there's one we can encourage others to run." The Asian Herald contributed to the DNC to represent Charlotte's Asian American community to the whole country by providing On Wednesday September 19, Aung San busing and lodging for volunteers, by proSuu Kyi was officially presented with the viding a venue at the Asian Herald Library for training, and by hosting the AAPI Del- Congressional Gold Medal award. Following the congressional award ceremony she met President Obama. She toured the US for 17 days, receiving four awards, speaking at colleges, and visited the UN, Yale, and Harvard. Suu Kyi was originally granted the Congressional Gold Medal award in 2008 while she was under house arrest for peacefully rallying for civil rights and democratic reform for Myanmar. Welcomed by a standing ovation, she was officially presented with the highest congressional award in a formal ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda with the highest civilian honor granted. During Suu Kyi`s visit, she was treated with the same honors usually reserved for prime ministers and presidents. Speaker of the House of Representatives, John Boehner presented the Congressional Gold Medal award to Suu Kyi. To present the award, Boehner was accompanied by former first lady Laura Bush, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. In her acceptance speech, Suu Kyi credited president Thein for his many reforms since his election to office. Following the award ceremony, Suu Kyi then went to the Oval Office of the White House for a half hour private meeting with egates Meet & Greet. The opportunity for President Obama. No TV cameras were our local Asian American community to connect with others in Texas, California, Virginia, New York, and elsewhere made it clear that AAPIs everywhere are more relevant than ever. Congresswoman Chu echoed this sentiment. "It's our time to get fully involved in the political process. It's our time to become empowered in the American political system. It's our time to raise our voice." The upcoming election will show just how loud Asian Americans can be. by Dr. Ki-Hyun Chun. Suu Kyi Receives Congressional Medal, Meets Obama By A. D. October 2012 (3) allowed. Only still photographers were briefly admitted for a quick photo opportunity with no official statements made. After the meeting, the President acknowledged Suu Kyi's courage and personal sacrifice for democracy and human rights over the years. The purpose of her visit here is to urge the US to end sanctions against Myanmar. She promised to work for more improvements in her country using her newly elected government position. On September 25, over 5000 gathered at Fort Wayne, Indiana to hear her speak. She was welcomed to the stage by a standing ovation. Fort Wayne has one of the largest Burmese communities in the US. The embargos, she addressed the crowd, were effective on helping bring political reform to Myanmar. Now she states that it is time to lift the ban on imports from their country, saying that it will help rebuild Myanmar's economy. Thein Sein attended the UN General assembly on September 27 to address the assembly about the political reforms in Myanmar since he took office in March 2011. He wants to return his country to the international community to cooperate with the UN and seeks an end to sanctions and get assistance with solutions to various problems such as civil unrest in Myanmar. Myanmar wants to solve conflict issues such as the violence between the minority population of Muslim Rohingya fighting with the majority Rakhine Buddhist population in the western state of Rakhine.

We are very encouraged with the commitment and energy our partners continue to show. I spent two weeks in South Korea, reporting to our Korean brothers on our joint work. During that time, we arranged for the shipment from the U.S. to North Korea of the most needed spare parts. Together with the South Koreans, we will send a third rig, now completed, as soon as we get an export permit from the U.S. government. Please pray that our access continues to grow in North Korea, and as our resources are extremely limited, that we will have wisdom in the allocation of funds. We thank you for your continued support, and please remember us as we deal with our many supply challenges. Give thanks with us that the Lord has permitted us to work and to bear witness to His love in this difficult portion of His vineyard. these problems in North Korea seem to repeat themselves, and while we do not know the mind of God, we are praying for ways to demonstrate the love of Christ through all this.

On arrival, our NK colleagues asked for a change of schedule so that we could view and report on the flood damage on late July. More than 500 people lost their lives, and 22,000 were made homeless. Additionally, a large amount of cropland and stored food was destroyed. We were permitted to photograph many communities in South Pyongan Province, and speak with the survivors. Shortly after we left North Korea on the 11th of August, a typhoon hit, causing at least as much damage again.

Our story begins in a garden. A scrappy little garden, (add photo) with a lot of heart and many hands to tend it. There among the weeds and the wonder we thought why not gather gardens across town to grow food for the meals-onwheels program and to grow the community of urban gardeners? Simple ideas are like seeds. They want to grow. And with a little care and feeding they become big ideas that produce a harvest of opportunity. Slow Food Charlotte and Friendship Trays planted this seed in the spring of 2009 and the Friendship Gardens grew. In May of 2010, The Women's Impact Fund awarded a $70,000 grant to Slow Food Charlotte to support and expand the work of Friendship Gardens. We hope that you'll take a moment to get to know us, read about our gardens, our projects, our partnerships and our vision. Join the team, volunteer, lend a hand, share your knowledge, drop us a line or better yet, plant a garden. Friendship Gardens is an expanding network of community, school, faithbased, institutional, public, private, and backyard gardens. Most of our garden partnerships share their harvest for the benefit of Friendship Trays who provide over 750 meals a day to members of our community who have limited access to healthy food. To the community: we offer educational workshops, volunteer and leadership opportunities, community connections, and food access to those with limited options. Beyond the South Korea has been importing rice from the US due to reduced areas of farmland because of urban and commercial expansion. Elevated levels of arsenic have been discovered by the US Food and Drug Administration and Consumer Reports magazine in US grown rice. The sale of US grown rice in South Korea has also been suspended pending further research about arsenic and rice. In 2011, South Korea imported 101,490 tons of US grown rice. This year they had planned to import 90,901 tons of rice from the US. The higher levels of arsenic in US rice are grown in the southeast US, in states such as Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas. The rice exported to Korea was grown in California, which contains lower levels of arsenic that are comparable to the levels found in rice grown in India and Thailand. A professor of pediatrics at Mount Sinai Hospital School of Medicine has suggested for concerned parents that oatmeal or barley are good substitutes for rice. Oatmeal has five times less the amount of arsenic found in rice. Three US House representatives introduced the `Rice Act' on September 21st that will set limits on arsenic in food. Currently, bottled water is the only regulated consumer product for levels of arsenic. Earlier this year legislation was introduced to regulate the levels of lead and arsenic found in fruit juice after high levAsian Embassies Chinese Embassy Indian Embassy Indonesian Embassy Japanese Embassy Korean Embassy Philippines Embassy Singapore Embassy Taiwan(Am.

Arsenic is a naturally occurring chemical. There are both organic and inorganic forms of arsenic. The natural organic form is found in the air, water, and soil. Inorganic arsenic has become present in farmland from fertilizer containing chicken waste. Chicken feed contained arsenic for production purposes. In the past and now discontinued, pesticides had been used that contained lead arsenate. The FDA has been monitoring the level of arsenic in rice for decades. They state that there is no evidence found in any of its studies that the rice is unsafe for consumption. There will be further in-depth studies completed by the end of this year. Most foods contain trace amounts of arsenic. US Department of Agriculture and US Health and Human Services recommend adults should consume 6 to 10 oz of grain every day. Unfortified rice is nutritious and has over 15 vitamins and minerals.

The Asian Herald The DNC's impact on the AAPI community of North Carolina began getting involved in political and community matters because he wanted to play a more active role than that of an objective journalistic observer. As he reported on issues facing his community and felt personally compelled to actually do something about them. "I feel like there's a good purpose in what I'm doing now," he stated. Ricky was an organizer for the Asian Pacific Americans for Progress (APAP) training held at the Asian Herald Library on Monday, September 3. The training taught community members how to get engaged in the democratic process by teaching how to register voters, how to educate people on issues, and how to properly raise funds for political candidates. The event was attended by students from all of the major North Carolina universities as well as community leaders and organizers from all around the state. Ricky also volunteered with the DNCC Digital Media Team to tape delegates during the con- Writer's Corner by Daniel Chun CPA, J.D. political process. "I'm hopeful about North Carolina's future � a positive future that's better for our children and our children's children." Even now after the dust has settled and the last visitor has left Charlotte following the close of the DNC, we still feel the after-effects of the convention all over North Carolina. The DNC had a far reaching impact on everyone that attended but it especially changed the Asian American community. Throughout the convention, Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) got involved through volunteering, attending caucus meetings, participating in training sessions, and hearing speakers at the Time Warner Cable Arena. Local Asian Americans from all walks of life from students, and professionals to business owners and pastors shared their perspectives with members of AAPI communities not just in North Carolina but all over the country. The convention changed the way many Asian Americans felt about engaging the political process and what it means to be an American. Ricky Leung from Greensboro, North Carolina and New Media Director at the NC Justice Center said that the convention made him feel like he was part of something bigger. Ricky drove down from Durham, North Carolina to attend the convention. Skyrocketing hotel room prices did not stop him from volunteering as he slept on an air mattress at the Asian Herald Library, close to downtown Charlotte and all of the activities during the convention.

For Robert Mady, a senior at UNC Charlotte, the DNC affirmed his recent embracing of his Asian American identity and advocacy for the AAPI community. Of Laotian descent, Robert grew up in Albemarle just outside of Charlotte in a predominantly non-Asian area. He did not feel very connected to the AAPI community until he started attending college and joined the Asian Students Association. Robert began educating himself on issues facing his community and quickly became a leader among his fellow AAPI classmates. Before becoming president of UNC Charlotte's Asian Student Association, he served as community liaison for his whole campus for the East Coast Asian American Students Union, whose 36th annual conference was held at Duke University last year with over 1,500 vention. When asked what effect the students and volunteers in attendance. convention had on AAPIs he said, "Be- Robert encouraged his classmates to atfore the convention there was a feeling that (AAPIs) were not powerful, but the convention really upped the energy." He now feels motivated about the future and is even inspired to try to be a delegate at the next convention. "There were so many people there at the convention, but everyone had a great attitude.

He and his and pushes them to get involved in the friends were the lead volunteers, registering guests and providing support for speakers, for the APAP training held at the Asian Herald Library and the Asian Pacific Islander American (APIA) Vote Gala. The training helped him feel more confident about getting directly involved in getting other people to vote and even connected him with several influential AAPIs in government, including a member of Congress. "It was sort of shocking, when (Congressman) Mike Honda remembered me and knew who I was." Seeing Charlotte transformed during the DNC and the AAPI involvement around him left a strong impression on Robert. "The final day I had the amazing opportunity to actually hear President Obama speak. It was the most motivating time of my life." When asked what he took away from the convention as a young Charlottean he said, "AAPIs are growing. I got to meet association leaders October 2012 (7) from the different Asian groups so I can see that we're here in Charlotte, we're growing and we're coming together." Ricky and Robert represent just two voices out of all of the Asian Americans that pitched in to participate in electing our next president. Regardless of what political party any group affiliates itself with, it is each American's right to help shape this country and enrich its democracy by contributing their unique point of view to the political process. Although the AAPI community does not have a long history of voting in numbers in North Carolina, Robert feels optimistic that it will play a larger role in this election cycle and those to come. He remarked on the journey ahead for his Asian Students Association and for the AAPI community as a whole, "If you want to get gold, you have to just start running." As you can see, Asian Americans are like Ricky and Robert are already racing forward. 1339 Baxter St. Suite 200 Charlotte, NC 28204 E-mail : email@example.com Tel :(704)332-5656 Fax:(704)332-9373 October 2012 (8) The AsiAn herAld ISSUES OF IMPORTANCE TO ASIAN-AMERICANS First Day at Democratic Convention: Unprecedented Number of Asian American and Pacific Islander Gatherings Held In Support of Obama Democrats' positions on issues resonate with diverse Asian American and Pacific Islander communities, leading to an unprecedented amount of gatherings in support of President Obama across the nation and at the Convention. "As an Asian American delegate, I support President Obama because he has my family's interests in mind. I have a job, a roof over my head and my children are able to continue to attend college," said Ruthann Kurose, a delegate from Washington. A morning brief held by APIAVote on the electorate brought even more awareness to issues of importance with the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. Polls presented show that Asian Americans overwhelmingly like President Obama, with nearly three-quarters viewing him favorably. On the issues, Asian Americans believe the country is moving in the right direction. During the DNC, Delegates and volunteers utilized Asian Herald Library as training facility to have work shop for net work and strategy to win November election for Obama. Congressman Michael M. Honda and Congresswoman Judy Chu gave inspirational lecture to motivate volunteers. Asian Herald provided busing and lodging for more than dozens of volunteers. They slept 1st & 3rd floor, and utilized 2nd floor for their office work where they could use many desk top computers.

The decisive 5 hour perilous naval battle of Lepanto ( Italian for what is now Naupactos or dockyard, in the western coast of Loeris,Greece) changed the course of history, and saved Europe & Christian world from the Turkish invasion. A famous painting of the Battle of Lepanto by the Filipino national painter & hero, Juan Luna, hangs in the Spanish Senate of Madrid. Miguel de Cervantes, author of Don Quixote, lost the use of an arm in the battle and was known as the " Manco/ cripple de Lepanto". This decisive victory was attibuted to the Holy Mother of God, whose intercession with God was invoked thru the praying of the rosary by the crew of the 200 ships and Christians gathered in churches all over Europe. ( All but 13 of the 300 Turkish ships were sunk or taken). In Manila, the Feast of La Naval is celebrated with a huge parade of lavishly decorated statues of the Virgin Mary on floats ( from different churches in the country), accompanied by the parish members, reciting & singing the rosary. The celebration of the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, invites all to meditate upon the mysteries of Christ ( known as Glorious, Joyful, Sorrowful & Luminous mysteries, recited on different days), following the example of the Blessed Virgin, who was so singularly associated with the Incarnation/Birth, Passion/Crucifixion and Glorious Resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Coordinators of the NC & SC Rosary Groups are: Nena Amigo(South), Rose Freeman/ Betty Javelona(North&University area), Joe Calicdan (Marian), Andy Pagilagan(Rockhill), Dr. Nini ( Queen of Peace), Lita Joaquin ( Lady of Guadalupe, Waxhaw), Malette Oliveros( Huntersville/Concord), Connie Hudack( Lady of Fatima, Ballantyne/Fort Mill); Done Espina/Teofy Floyd (Albemarle), Susan Aquino Supil (Servants of the Lord,Matthews).

The Filipinos' devotion to the Virgen Mary & the recitation of the rosary in her honor, dates back to the discovery and Christianization of the Philippines in March 1521. October is designated as the month of the Virgin Mary and the Rosary because of her two important feast days, i.e. Our Lady of the Rosary Feast on October 7 and the Motherhood of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Theotokos,or Mother of God) on October 11. The Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary ( also known as Our Lady of Victory) was instituted by Pope St. Pius V on the anniversary of the naval victory (La Naval) on October 7, 1571, won by the Christian fleet of the Holy League, led by Spanish Duke Juan de Austria son of Hapsburg Emperor Charles V( composed of the Catholic kings of Ge- Business for Sale Sushi& Hot Asian Food Takeout Franchise Business for Sale The Best Location in Greensboro, NC For information, and to schedule an appointment Business for Sale Please call or email Soe at Tel : (336) 686-2556 Email : Soesapal1970@gmail.com October 2012 (10) The Asian Herald Tin Tin Has 10 Years of Success and same shareholders opened a smaller restaurant `Tin Tin Noodle Box' in downtown. Another difference between Tin Tin and other Chinese buffets in Charlotte is the service island. It is situated in the buffet so you can observe the prep cooks and how they prepare the food. As you dine, you can watch from almost any table in the restaurant as the service island is keeping freshly prepared food available on the buffet. You can see the sushi chef prepare the Takuwan and California Rolls. Satay chicken can be seen grilling over open flame. As they cut the fresh fruit and make the salads behind the bar, it can be viewed. You may easily observe their food handling procedures. There is also another feature at the service island, a unique treat for noodle soup lovers. You can choose from 5 types of noodles and 3 choices of soup broth for your soup creation. Just simply greet the cooks behind the window and let them know which items you would like to combine, and they will prepare the soup for you. Some patrons come to the restaurant just for the soup. Another unique quality of Tin Tin is that they develop and perfect new items to add to the buffet approximately every 3 months or so to have new items for their regular customers to try. The buffet prices are not high even though they purchase food for the buffet that is higher quality than average Chinese restaurants. Customers have been known to wait outside in line and they do not mind the wait. Congratulation for TENTH ANNIVERSARY and Thank You for your service to Charlotte! Restaurant hours: Lunch: 7 days a week 11am � 3pm. Dinner: Sunday � Thursday 4:30pm � 9:30pm. Friday & Saturday 4:30pm � 10:00pm.
