WHIAAPI looks forward to making progress on these partnerships in the upcoming months and creating exciting new opportunities for the AAPI community.
While the environment can be powerful, its negative effects are primarily man-made. Everything we put in the environment impacts our surroundings and inevitably, human health.
The rich owners of the NFL teams and the NFL itself can do more than make statements. Firing Ray Rice is fine but the violent incident against his wife is only the tip of the iceberg of what is happening to women across the spectrum, without regard to race or economic status.
The president and his staff showed that he holds politics above the latino and immigrant communities, and continues to move forward with his efforts to lower the expectation for what is possible for him to do.
Top military experts and government institutions like the U.S. Department of Defense and National Intelligence Council warn that climate destabilization threatens our national security, yet global emissions just keep going up.
As an American citizen who one day hopes to become a public servant and who frequently monitors our nation's foreign policy, I continue to wish you and your colleagues in the State Department, Pentagon, and intelligence community the best of luck. America's security depends on the efforts that you make in the weeks ahead.
In the Latino community two things are clear about the immediate political implications of the president's delay -- the GOP dodged a lethal bullet while the Democratic Party shot itself in the foot.
Confidence in institutions, particularly government, is dipping dangerously low. If it goes much further we may end up in an unbreakable spiral whereby America becomes a helpless, passive entity in the world. Rather than wallow in our pessimism or aim for small, incremental solutions, we need to do things that captivate people's minds.
Last week, I was arrested with more than 130 other advocates outside the White House. This is not the first time I have been arrested in an act of civil disobedience in front of the White House protesting our nation's immoral immigration system -- but I am praying that it is the last time.
To protect the constitutional democratic order, Pakistan needs to pass a law to regulate the right to protest that forbids inciting a crowd to imminent violence, issuing threats to the life of lawmakers, or entering government buildings.
It's a toss-up which party will control the Senate, but Latino voters will be a factor. And even if Republicans do manage to win the Senate, insult and inaction on immigration will likely hurt their chances to win the presidency in 2016.
I know you guys want us to do something about Ukraine, ISIS, immigration, the budget, and many other things but really, we don't have any idea what to do about any of it.
If we truly are going to guard the next generation, we must engage communities to raise the bar on human health -- with a clear and specific focus on preventing cancer. If our children are going to have a healthier future, then cancer must not be an expected stage of life.
My long experience with pesticides, agriculture, and the environment has convinced me we must defang agriculture. Ban most of its biocides. Keep some pesticides for emergencies. But these chemicals are not necessary to produce food. Organic farming is a proof of that.
In 1983, I entered my New York Times office to a ringing telephone. "This is Ray Price, President Nixon's press secretary. He wants to speak to you." Then came the unmistakable voice
Needless to say, we've put the events of August 1814 far behind us. So much so, in fact, that when the British prime minister, David Cameron, visited the White House two years ago, he and President Obama, fresh from watching a March Madness basketball game together, traded wisecracks about the burning.
