All Area Rep.

This year Business showcase event took place on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at The Park Expo & Conference Center, in Charlotte. Asian Chamber of Commerce was well represented, and according to Dr. Nini Bautista, Founder & Chairman Miss Asia Carolinas, “we were nicely located too....alongside the stage this time...,facing all the booths.” Business Showcase is the only trade show produced by the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce.

The 13th annual Business Showcase was a joint collaboration with Greater Hotel and Tourism Alliance held at the Park and Expo Conference Center. With 150 vendor booths, over 1100 attendees, and the best in B2B networking- Business Showcase had the city and social media buzzing! The event’s purpose brought a variety of businesses and organizations under one roof. With diversity at its best, the showcase provided a large opportunity to network, discover opportunities and collaborations in our area. The Charlotte region is a hub of activity. Visions are being created. Plans are being implemented. People are working together to accomplish goals that will preserve Charlotte as a great place to live and do business. Manufacturing, healthcare and the energy industry are key components of the Charlotte business community. Charlotte is known for being a can-do town. The public and private sectors have come together

numerous times to work toward what is best for Charlotte. That partnership has helped build a strong sense of community. The Charlotte-Metro region is home to 273 Fortune 500 Companies, seven of which are headquartered in Mecklenburg County. As explained by the Chamber of Commerce” historically, Charlotte has been perceived as a textile center and more recently a banking center. While Charlotte is justifiably proud of the industries with which it has been linked over the years, narrow characterizations sell this city’s economy short. Charlotte enjoys a vibrant, balanced economy that encompasses many sectors, as well as companies that range in size from multinational to microbusiness. That variety helps make Charlotte’s economy one of the healthiest and strongest in the nation. Diverse business interests shelter the city from problems that can result from slowdowns in certain sectors, corporate mergers and buyouts, plant closures and other economic challenges. The solid base also facilitates exceptionally strong growth during economic upswings. While the economy’s strength is certainly a plus, companies considering a relocation to Charlotte will find other advantages in this broad-based economy. For example, suppliers and services are abundant and convenient. Employers’ costs for wages, benefits and labor overhead, such as worker’s compensation, unemployment and health insurance coverage, are significantly lower than in other regions. And Charlotte-Mecklenburg offers an unusually rich quality of life, with ample opportunity for companies and executives who wish to actively participate in making this city an even better place to live and work. ■

International Organizations Meeting

Hosted by Charlotte International Cabinet

The Charlotte International Cabinet hosts several events throughout the year. On March 18, CIC hosted the International Organizations Meeting. This open forum allows representatives from Charlotte's international organizations to brainstorm on the issues that shape our community as a whole. The meeting is held to help the Mayor and City Council know what topics are of concern to Charlotte's international community. The Mayor typically opens the forum with a short address and then attendees are asked to share their concerns and ideas to address these issues. This meeting allows the City to field any issues that the international community may be facing before they become major problems. It also offers the City a unique perspective on issues facing every resident, as these particular community leaders bring best practices and new ideas to the table from all over the world. Among the topics were Health, Educa-

tion, Public Safety, Small Business, Transportation, and Immigration. Alexis Gordon, the program Director at CIC, opened the event, and informed about the discussion groups, so each participant will represent and be part of the collaborative effort in pinpointing problems and solutions for the specific field of inters or expertise. Mayor Anthony Foxx greeted the participants, and expressed the need for this event, the importance for the future development to follow the right direction, and the implication it has in the strategies that have to be adopted. From education to small business and job creation, the imput offered by the information produced is critical. It will consist as base for adaptive-planning, according to the dynamic and diverse community in Charlotte and surrounding areas. As part of the workshop, the event focused on the nonprofit sector. Alyssa Federico, Vice President of Finance at Foundation for The Carolinas, held a presentation about the purpose and implications that come with being a nonprofit organization in NC, and becoming a 501c IRS recognized entity. As stated in CCF report “In the face of an economic crisis unparalleled since the Great Depression, the Charlotte community saw challenges, but also opportunities. In September 2009, a coordinated community effort that included input from corporate executives, foundation leaders, philanthropists, nonprofit organizations, as well as government and civic representatives culminated in the establishment of the Community Catalyst Fund (CCF).1 CCF is an ongoing initiative

that is dedicated to providing the nonprofit sector with support for strategic transformations, including innovative service models, collaborations, partnerships and mergers. The intention of the Catalyst program is to enable nonprofit organizations to reposition themselves to meet a future characterized by increased demands for services and diminished funding… The nonprofit sector in particular experienced a remarkable increase in demand for services, as well as a concurrent and significant drop in revenues as foundation giving and corporate philanthropy declined, governmental bud-

gets were drastically cut, and individual donors tightened their belts.” The nonprofit sector is represented by wealth of charitable organizations serving and leading our community. Community’s needs and opportunities change timely, so nonprofit organizations have emerged and grown in large numbers to address these issues head-on. Many seek help with capacity and sustainability— the kind of support needed to achieve missions. Whether an organization is emerging or has deep roots in the region, Carolina Foundation can help and simplify the work. ■

Japanese Students Come to Charlotte Submitted by Andrea Lee

Twenty-four students and two teachers descended on Charlotte from Thursday, March 21 through Sunday, March 24. The purpose?..... To reconnect with South and West Mecklenburg High School students who had visited these same students in Japan last summer 2012; and to give a thoughtful presentation about Japan’s “Road to Recovery: Creating Bonds.” This on-going relationship is formally called the “Kizuna Project” and is a twoyear commemoration of the Great East Japan Earthquake that happened on March 11, 2011. Kizuna means… Bonds of Friendship. The 1st phase was for MACS students to visit the areas that were affected by the earthquake and while there learned safety and prevention skills for how to endure and survive during a natural disaster. The 2nd phase was to invite these Japanese students from those affected areas to Charlotte to learn more about their experiences during and after the disaster. On Saturday, March 23 the public was invited to participate in this presentation, and Room 121 in the Fretwell Building, was filled to capacity. A warm welcome was offered by the Japanese Consulate-General from Atlanta, Ms. Midori Yamamitsu, who “thanked Charlotte for overwhelming compassion” in supporting the victims of the tsunami. She stated that there were 1,000 Japanese living in North & South Carolina. Akio Shioiri, head of the Japan Association in Charlotte, also welcomed the group. Eric Ward, CMS West Mecklenburg Principal, offered remarks with focus on the “bond” that had been created by his students with those from Japan and how these friendships would connect the world of the future. The Japanese students showed slides of the tsunami and clear explanations of what actually happens when an earthquake takes


place with the ensuing aftermath. Some of the facts offered were: there are 300 earth quakes every day in Japan;the center of the earthquake on March 11, 2011 was off the island of Miyagi; it struck at 14.46 with a seismic intensity of 7 and a magnitude of 9. Twenty thousand people were killed. The nuclear power plant that was compromised was in Fukushima prefecture and over 11 thousand people were evacuated. So far 26 million tons of rubble has been removed, which is the equivalent of 260,000 blue whales. The rubble was so contaminated with radiation that most people refused to clean up, causing much delay. Only 46% of the rubble had been cleared by January 31, 2013 and the remaining 54% is slated to be cleared by March 2014. There is much abnormal growth in the plants grown in the region due to the ground water and soil contaminates. There are 330,000 people now living in makeshift housing and less than 25% of schools have been rebuilt. The limit anyone can live in the makeshift housing is 2 years, and those 2 years are now up, but still there is no other housing for these displaced people to live. Japan received aid and assistance form 142 countries and territories, and 39 international organizations who have contributed over $2 billionin support. Much has been done, but there is still much to do. While in the area, the Japanese students visited South & West Mecklenburg High Schools, enjoyed a field trip to the Biltmore Estate with their host students, and gave the presentation at UNCC, before moving on to Seattle, WA. The event sponsors were the Japan Foundation; UNCC; Japanese Teachers Association in Charlotte; with support from the Japanese Association in Charlotte and Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools. Asian inspired foods were served at a reception afterwards. Local Charlotte attendees included: Weimin and Mari Yuan; Santoshi and Miyake Wantanabe; Robert and ChiePetruska with daughter Christy; and Andrea Lee. For more information or how to help, please contact Consulate-General Midori Yamamitsu, / 404-926-3004 or Akio Shioiriashioiri@ / 704-548-7777. ■

Immigrant’s healthcare According to a new report released by the National Alliance on Mental Health, Asian American teenage girls have the highest rate of depressive symptoms of any racial, ethnic or gender group. From the federal reports, in Charlotte, some residents with the health mental problems where living in conditions that were not decent, safer or sanitary. The county contracted with Open Door to provide housing for clients in the Federal Shelter Plus Care Program. HUD has given the county about $4 millions to run Shelter Care since 2008. Unfortunately, taxpayers did not see their money making much difference and, as county commissioners chair Jennifer Roberts stated, the community deserves better services. At the Refugee Health the Services Available are: Health exams/screening and Referral for follow-up medical care. Client Eligibility: Only persons who have been processed through the United States Department of Immigration and Naturalization, and granted official status as a Refugee, Parolee or Asylee and are relocating to Mecklenburg County are eligible for this service. Even with Medicaid, as the only insurance plan available to cover immigrants, the family doctor/patient’s primary-care physician is not a choice. To top the undesired situation, the clinic is selected according to the zip code of the residency of the patient. In Charlotte, most of them live in 28205 and 20212 zip code area, which include only few clinics accepting the low-paying clients. Many organizations and healthcare providers are competing for funds, making the matter worse for the immigrants. “As refugees they get 8 months of Medicaid. After that, the mother may still qualify based on the age of her children and family income. The father, if working, will not be eligible. Refugees can utilize the Work First Program and receive Medicaid only if they have dependent children. Single adults do not qualify (MHA).” A new community-based study by UC Davis researchers has found that children

with developmental disabilities in SoutheastAsian-American families face significant obstacles to receiving intervention services. Barriers include lack of accurate information, language difficulties, lack of trust and limited outreach. Entitled “Understanding Developmental Disabilities in Families of Southeast Asian Origin,” the study is the first to examine the perceptions of families of Hmong and Mien children with disabilities as well as the barriers to service. "We do not have Hmong words for all the diagnoses, no word for Down’s syndrome … someone has to take the time to help make the understanding,” one male Hmong participant said. For Mental Health Association of Central Carolinas and FNHealthAssist organization reducing health disparities in underserved and underrepresented populations, along with promoting early identification and intervention for children with developmental disabilities are primary goals. “Since 1933, the Mental Health Association of Central Carolinas (MHA) has been the voice of hope for persons affected by mental illness. Though the organization's name has changed over the years, also coverage has widened to include Mecklenburg and Cabarrus Counties, our focus of advocacy and education has not altered.” Both organizations were represented at the recent International Organizations Meeting, hosted each year by Charlotte International Cabinet .This open forum allows members from Charlotte's international organizations to brainstorm on the issues that shape our community as a whole. “The largest group of refugees and aslyees in our region are the Montagnards. Groups currently arriving and being resettled locally are Bhutanese and Burmese”, said MHA Board Member Rogina Scott-Franklin on Multicultural Advocacy in a video. At a following meeting with representative from organizations, school and university psychologists, practitioners and physicians, a new plan of collaboration took shape. The need is great and urgent. Many diseases can be prevented if more attention is paid to the mental-wellbeing, depressions, anxiety and others causing disturbing problems, some with an tragic outcome ( as suicide).

He also compares Obama to past presidents in an attempt to answer whether or not Obama has been singled out for reasons outside of the political spectrum. “My main inspiration was to create a book that would either justify or stop the allegations brought forth against our president,” Bonna says. “As a teacher and a citizen of our dear country, I feel it is my civic responsibility to educate my students by providing them with facts, not tales, when it comes to choosing our president. “Who is Barack Obama?” also discusses Obama’s successful road to the White House and the nuances of the 2008 election. Written in a simplistic tone that allows readers as young as a third grader to understand the material, “Who is Barack Obama?” is a sequel to Bonna’s previously released book, “Barack Obama, the Road to the White House.” Between the two titles, readers

The Slim Plate System Lose Weight and Keep it off

Ace Medical Weight Loss was founded in 2006 by doctors Myo Sandar Nwe and Sandeep S Grewal, MD MS Board Certified in Internal Medicine, to serve Rock Hill, SC and the surrounding areas. The SlimPlate System was co-designed by both Ace Medical Weight Loss Center founders. Myo Sandar New is a design-engineer that made the Slim Plate System IPhibe app possible. The Android version is expected soon. This system is designed by weight-loss doctors, who understand why deprivation diets fail. The complete SlimPlate System is now available in North and South Carolina. This complete system of portion control tools is designed so that the user never has to count calories; instead it teaches users how to portion their plates for weight loss. Now, users have the freedom to choose their own food and their own recipes while losing weight. Dr. Myo M Nwe recently state“We’ve designed this system to be a long term weight loss solution. Unlike other diets, the SlimPlate System is intended to make sure you’re losing fat, not muscle. This four phase weight loss plan is planned to cause users to lose weight without giving up most of their favorite food, and then maintain their weight by portioning their plates in a healthy way. We’ve made this product so easy to use, by simply color coding portions of the plates for all four phases. Remember eating less is not a solution to lose weight, but eating right is.” - Dr. Myo M Nwe Both the SlimPlate system and the

SlimPlate iPhone app are available now. It features the SlimPlate meals tips for dining out and homemade meals, reminders for your meal schedule and the signature high intensity cross training exercise video. By taking a photo of what is on your plate, the information can be shared with the weight-loss doctor and to your fellow support group. They can send feedback, encouragements for proper eating habits, and congrats for each mile stone. Plus it is a free app, how cool is that!

Decreasing portions of each meal, drinking a glass of water prior to any meal, replacing high calorie snacks, avoiding haste-eating habit may help limit the excessive intake of the calorie.

“Eskuwelahang Munti” A Filipino Language School The newly formed Filipino "Eskuwelahang Munti " or Little School, will kick off with a two-week summer camp from June 17 to 28, 2013 from 10 am to 2 pm at 1004 Rockway Drive, Charlotte NC 28205 ( tel 704 373 0195.) The goal of the school is to teach the Filipino language or "Tagalog”, through total immersion and to develop an appreciation of the Philippines, its language and its culture. The theme for the camp is "Bakasyon sa Pilipinas.", or A Holiday in the Philippines. Through hands-on activities, we will walk the students through the steps of filing for a passport, buying tickets, etc. We will take an imaginary or virtual tour of the three main island groups of the Philippines, viz. Luzon, Visayas & Mindanao,

and learn about the cultures of each main island. The camp will be run by state-certified teachers. Registration fee for the 10-day summer camp is only $25.

Even daily activity at home, walking upstairs, getting up to get things, working in the backyard, walking in the mall etc. burn extra calories and keep you in constant active mode. Making these a habit will yield long term results. Remember adopting healthy lifestyle is a habit you will need for life. As Dr New explained “The weight loss efforts need a strong commitment. The support from family and friends to individuals fighting obesity is very important. Understanding the issue, we create this

mobile app. The app will serve as a secret friend, who will be there to motivate people, every step of their weight loss efforts. It reminds them to eat regularly, at the scheduled meal times; it suggests what different food to eat, even at their favorite fast food parlor or fancy restaurant. It will guide people to enjoy food, without feeling guilty. The certified fitness trainer is right at your finger tip at your convenient time and place, it will train you to exercise, will lead you from the beginner to advance and even to challenge level exercise. Surely it will become your pal, and I will let you choose a name for it.” ■

A woman’s need for financial security is no different from a man’s. Achieving it is another story.

Most women work and share the financial responsibility and decision making. Women tend to inOn March 14, Prudential presented a financial-makeover interactive event at the Asian Library. The hostess was Amira Issa, a Prudential Financial Professional Associate. The evening started with wine tasting, by The Sorting Table on 7th, creating a relaxing and unwinding atmosphere.

The Diversity Forum presents Dandapani

The Diversity Forum took place Thursday, March 28, at Harris Conference Center in Charlotte -CPCC Campus. Its Vision states “we believe diversity will give our nation a competitive advantage in the new global economy where ideas, concepts, knowledge and people have become a company's most important assets.” The Mission is to provide a diversity and inclusion platform that connects business leaders through innovation. The main objectives are Workplace Diversity and Inclusion. Also, it provides innovative ideas on the recruitment, hiring, and retention of a diverse workforce. The Diversity Forum is looking to offer the best practices platform of inclusion as a model for increasing individual and/or corporate leadership and development, and to deliver relevant forums by providing meaningful topics resulting in participation growth. It delivers an environment encouraging learning. Diversity-Sustainable impact. What sustainability is, what its goals should be, and how these goals are to be achieved are all open to Internal Medicine Family Kim Tam, M.D. English-Chinese

interpretation. For many environmentalists 'sustainable development' is an oxymoron - as development seems to entail environmental degradation. A universally accepted definition of sustainability remains elusive because it needs to be factual and scientific, a clear statement of a specific “destination”. According to some theories, the simple definition "sustainability is improving the quality of human life while living within the carrying capacity of supporting eco-systems", though vague, conveys the idea of sustainability having quantifiable limits. But sustainability is also a call to action, a task in progress or “journey” and therefore a political process, so some definitions set out common goals and values. The Earth Charter speaks of “a sustainable global society founded on respect for nature, universal human rights, economic justice, and a culture of peace.”Just to make it more complicated, the word sustainability is applied not only to human sustainability on Earth, but to many situations and contexts over many scales of space

It implies responsible and proactive decisionmaking and innovation that minimizes negative impact and maintains balance between social, environmental, and economic growth to ensure a desirable planet for all species now and in the future. It can also just refer to a future intention." So who is at the top of all diversity impact? The Diversity Forum Chairman is no other then Eric Watson, by now a familiar face to the Asian Community. His commitment to make a difference and leave a foot print to follow brought us the event at CPCC, and the speaker Dandapani. Hindu priest and meditation teacher, Dandapani is of Sri Lankan descent. Raised in Australia, he graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering. Deeply inspired by his family's spiritual traditions, Dandapani had firm foundations upon which, at the age of twentythree, he chose to live as a monk. Thus he followed his guru, Satguru Sivaya Subramu-

niyaswami to Kauai's Hindu Monastery in Hawaii. After being initiated as a monk by his Satguru, Dandapani studied a wide variety of Hindu teachings that focused on meditation, yoga and spiritual philosophy as keys to unfolding his own and others' deepest potential through personal self effort. In 2008, Dandapani's monastic vows expired and he chose to venture out on his own after living as a monk for ten years. Dandapani currently lives in New York City. He travels frequently, sharing the teachings of his guru in workshops and spiritual adventures in the US and around the world working with individuals, groups and organizations. Dandapani recognises the ongoing, developmental nature of a person's spiritual journey. He creates warm, respectful and fun places of exploration and training, and offers assistance to individuals, groups and organizations in spiritual and ethical development. Dandapani commenced the 2013 year with The Diversity Forum in Charlotte. Being presented with different notions of the monkhood, meditation, and philosophy, the participants were ready to research a different way of thinking, reacting, and handling situations within their business and life. Believing that these teachings are as relevant today as they were in ancient times, Dandapani is teaching us to understand ourselves and therefore understand others through these highly practical spiritual guidelines. ■ Acupuncture Lauren Leung, L.Ac

Food—Few young people have the income to purchase meals in business districts or dinners in restaurants. When meetings occur at meal times, organizations should provide young people either with food or with sufficient funds to pay for meals. This is already in SEAC to do list; although first grocerycart was rolling( as seen in the above picture), more support in this area is needed. Organization Staff and Policies—In some organizations that have always operated from an exclusively adult perspective, staff usually needs cultural competency training prior to involving youth meaningfully. Adults must accept young people's perspectives and ideas, and be willing to change rules to meet the needs of youth. Each adultparticipant must make determined efforts to let each young person know he/she is a valued, contributing member of the organization. Finally, with input from both youth and adults, organizations should develop policies on youth/adult interactions. For example, if a program involves overnight travel, youth and adults should be clear about their roles and responsibilities in traveling together. Policies must respect youth and their desire for independence and, at the same time, address parental concerns about security as well as the legal liability of the organization. There are many studies on youth-development to look at, and many more to come; however, SEAC has a great foundation, and a good start. With more partnerships to come, we will keep you posted on the other projects.

Health & Life 真神

谁是真神 在思考“谁是真神?”这个问题时,无意 之间发现了一篇文章。文章的题目是“认识 真神”。作者是 Steven Houck,该篇文章有 六个章节: 永生,真神,神的要求,人的失 败,神的救赎,和真正的信仰。由于篇幅限 制,兹介绍前两章。希望读者,尤其是信仰 基督的兄弟姐妹喜欢。

永生 你了解真神吗?不是人所想象的,乃是圣 经中描述的神?你对他有亲密的了解,从而 使你爱他,为他服务?这是一个非常重要的 问题。圣经告诉我们,永生是知道上帝和他 的儿子耶稣基督。耶稣说,这永恒的生命

是: 他们知道您派来的耶稣基督和您是唯一 的真神。(约翰福音17:3)如果你想有永恒 的生命,并与神永远生活在天上,你必须知 道上帝和他的儿子,耶稣基督。 如果你有兴趣认识真正的上帝,请仔细斟 酌以下内容。


圣经教导我们,上帝是非常伟大,光荣 的。他是至高无上的神。耶和华超乎万民之

上 。谁像耶和华我们的 神呢?他坐在至高 之处,自己谦卑,洞察天上地下的事 。 (诗篇113:4-6)上帝是如此之伟大,没有 人像他。在世界上没有任何人可以与神相 比。上帝是一个神圣的整体:具有圣父,圣 子,圣灵三个位格。上帝是无限的,自给自 足的,不可改变的,并拥有所有主权。他是 无所不能,无所不知,无处不在。天地的神 是圣洁,公义,和公正的神。他是充满慈 爱,恩典和真理。他是如此伟大以至于他的 荣耀超过上述所有国家,甚至盖过了天。与 他相比,我们什么都不是。万民在他面前好

志。他是永恒的国王,他统治着所有的事 情,包括你和我。他控制着世界,带来了对 所有的东西,包括每个人在内的永久计划。

我们也在他里面得了基业,这原是那位 随 己意行作万事的,照着他旨意所预定的 。 (以弗所书1:11)神是你的统治者和国王。

它們怎麼熬都不稠,湯很清。 中醫恰恰是利用了它這種清的性質,來

因此,在世界上没有任何生物是独立于神 的。我们都需要神。你亏欠真神你自己的生 命。此外,上帝创造了你是出于自己的荣 耀。圣经说,上帝,因为你创造了万物,并 且万物是因你的旨意被创造而有的 。(启 示录4:11)你不是在为自己的快乐而被产 生。你被产生也不是为了简简单单的存在。 你的产生是荣耀 神。

캐롤라이나 국제문화협회 소식 캐롤라이나 국제문화협회(CICC) 마지막 회의 가져... CICC(Carolina International Cultural Committee, 회장 이승현 박사)는 지난 3월 9일(토) 오후 6시, 샬롯 다운타운에 있는 메리엇 호텔에서 20여명의 회원이 모인 가운데 있었다. 이날 식사 후에 진 행된 회의는 거의 은퇴하고 80세가 넘 는 회원들이 모였고 , 그 동안 CICC 종 결에 대한 의견들을 나누어 왔던 차 이 번 회의를 통해 최종 중지를 모으고 공 식적인 마지막 회의임을 발표했다. 한 편, 5만여불의 잔여금 회비 사용계획은 따로 모임을 갖고 결정하기로 했다. 케롤라이나 지역의 엘리트들이 회원간

의 친목을 도모하고, 장학사업을 목적으 로 24년 전에 창립되었던 CICC는 그간 많은 활동을 하며 주력한 사업은 소련과 연변대학에서 한인 교환교수들을 불러 들여 장학금을 지급하고 미국에서의 학 위과정 이수를 도왔으며, 미국에서는 장 학생을 선발하여 대학 진학생 뿐만 어려 운 한인학생들에게 장학금을 지급해 왔 었다. 한편 캐롤라이나 지역에서 건강한 목적 을 가지고 창립되었던 CICC가 24년이 지난 즈음에 종결은,20여년간 젊은 층 의 회원 미가입으로 세대교차를 이루지 못한 것이 큰 원인 중에 하나가 되고 있 다. ■
