Asian Heritage Awards

Asian Heritage Awards The EXCLUSIVE GALA – will be held Saturday, November. 22, 2014 at the California Center for the Arts in San Diego, beginning with a 5:30 p.m.

he Asian Heritage Awards is produced by Asian Heritage Society... The annual Asian Heritage Awards is produced by the Asian Heritage Society, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit corporation, founded in 2005 to preserve the legacy of Asian Americans and develop tomorrow’s leaders by advancing their prospects for success. AHS promotes understanding between cultures, recognizes the achievements of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans through the annual Asian Heritage Awards and helps young people prepare for their futures through its BOOSTEM program. Asia Media America is the media arm detailing the work of the Asian Heritage Society and its programs while it informs readers about major changes in science, technology and business and recognizes the relationship between Asia and the United States in all its ramifications. The Asian Heritage Society also produces Make It In America as a means taking back our economy. Globalization and its result – outsourcing – need to be challenged by a reinvigorated model of Freedom and Opportunity that made this country great. Nov. 19, 2014 is the first – and most important – step in that challenge. Globalization also means recognizing the increased health threats that come with it. AIDS has killed twice as many people as the influenza pandemic of 1919. The toll continues, global travel increases the risk, and victims are changing. They are youngsters in cultures where the disease and sex is not discussed. Renoo’s Ranch is a place they can go to reclaim their lives and rebuild their hopes and dreams. - See more at: http://www.asianheritageawards.com This award-winning annual event recognizes achievements in 14 categories and has honored such organizations as Habitat for Humanity and leaders such as Rear Adm. Ron MacLaren, McDonald’s scion C.C. Yin, founder of the Asian Pacific American Political Affairs Association; Major Gen. Antonio Taguba, California Senator Leland Yee, former U.N. Ambassador Sichan Siv, economist Alan Gin, Presidential Medal of Science winner Dr. Shu Chien and San Diego’s first Asian elected official, Tom Hom. Award winners in the category of Military have included Navy Capt. Cynthia Macri and Navy Capt. Myles Esmele, who have been instrumental in promoting diversity within the military, and Air Force Brig. Gen. Cary Chun, one of the highest-ranking Filipino Americans serving in the Armed Forces. Candidates for honors represent the best and brightest in community service and humanitarian endeavors and include attorneys, doctors, entertainers, artists and scientists. What they all have in common are two things: achievement and dedication to community. Like us, they see a better world and have dedicated their professional as well as personal lives to improve that world for this and future generations. In addition to celebrating achievement, you will pave the way for a better tomorrow by supporting the Asian Heritage Society’s BOOST-STEM program, which incorporates the richness of science with the adventure of entrepreneurship as a future gateway for our young people. BOOST, which stands for Business, Organized global education, Opportunity, Science and Technology. grooms young girls for successful careers combining science with entrepreneurial vision.

Mission: In addition to celebrating achievement, you will pave the way for a better tomorrow by supporting the Asian Heritage Society’s BOOSTEM program, which incorporates the richness of science with the adventure of entrepreneurship as a future gateway for our young people, and Make It In America, an ongoing effort supporting San Diego as a hub for innovators and investors from California and Asia.

Good deed goes unnoticed, heroic stories go untold and important events are sunk when people don't care. Let's not make that happen to the USS KIRK, a piece of America now in the waters of Taiwan. She was leased to their government for a dollar!. It is a quest to bring her back to become a museum (like USS Midway in San Diego) to keep the history alive. Please join the mission to bring the piece of American history back to America. http://www.asianheritagesociety.org/usskirk.html

SUPER BOWL: A SYMBOL FOR OUR TIMES

For years, we were lured into believing that it was gauche to wear one’s patriotism on our sleeves, so to speak, or to sing the praises of America. Globalism, instead, was the rallying cry. Make the world better and other countries stronger economically, even if it meant turning your back on your ow...

PRESIDENT TRUMP: OFF AND RUNNING

China and trade? Look at who was standing behind the President as he signed a slate of executive orders to bring the country out of the last eight years of doldrums and inaction. That was Peter Navarro, the new trade chief who has not minced words about China’s intent to bury the U.S. economically.

AN EMERGING MODEL FOR A NEW AMERICA

The Vietnam War was over. But as Capt. Paul Jacobs steamed away from Vietnam aboard the USS Kirk, he received a message from his superiors: “Go back and rescue the Navy.” Not only did he rescue the Navy. His effort saved 35,000 South Vietnamese. After the fall of Saigon, actress Tippi Hedren, the st...

We are appealing to you to support this once-in-your-lifetime project. There is a saying that “the winner gets to write the history.” Let’s not let that happen to Vietnam.  Lately we have been seeing a lot about the success of modern-day Vietnam. In addition, most of what millions of Americans know…

Virtual Reality Vietnamese American Experience

FROM CATACLYSM THROUGH THE HEART OF DARKNESS
“Pho For The Soul” is the story of Vietnamese Americans who lived and survived the biggest turning point in their lives and a handful of Americans who helped them do it. The book is modeled after the best-selling book of all time – “Chicken Soup For the Soul” – but is so much more. Unlike chicken soup, a warm and soothing comfort food, pho is anything but that. An amalgam of flavors -- sour, salty, sweet and spicy – when even on the coldest day it can make you sweat, pho is the perfect symbol for a generation of men and women who weathered unbelievable encounters with death, starvation, torture and despair to sustain a legacy for their children and grandchildren that goes beyond survival. More than 1.5 million of them became the largest generation of refugees ever admitted to the United States, and, for most, an indelible asset to their adopted country in fields ranging from business and science to military and public service while encompassing every facet of arts and culture. Their place in history should never be be forgotten, which is why this book is being done and made into a movie under the guidance of a major Academy Award-winning producer. However, this book is not about the past, which we cannot change. It is about a future that only this special kind of resilience and the will to survive and thrive can be – a model for every refugee or immigrant that has ever made it to America and ever will, as well as the opportunities this country provides. A blueprint for survival, as well as a blueprint for the future – it comes at a time when most needed.
“Pho For The Soul” is a project of the Asian Heritage Society and County of San Diego and will be distributed to city and county schools and libraries. If you want to join this project by sharing your story, or financially support it, please contact us at [email protected] or call 619-521-8008.

How Scott Peters Foiled Blackout of House Sit-In: 'There's an App for That' - Times of San Diego

Knowing our friend and Rep. Scott Peters he is not someone to stand idly by as major events unfold. While the Republican-controlled House of Representatives blacked out a protest by Democrats trying to bring the gun control issue to the floor, San Diego Rep. Scott Peters took matters in his own hands yesterday while demonstrating his tech-savvy. While Republicans in control of the House shut down C-span and prohibited any photos or video of the proceedings, Scott downloaded Periscope, an ap for video streaming, on his cell phone and broadcast the proceedings, garnering more than 800,000 views. Here’s the story on Times of San Diego. http://timesofsandiego.com/politics/2016/06/22/how-scott-peters-foiled-blackout-of-house-sit-in-theres-an-app-for-that/

While Virtual Reality has taken the tech world by storm, it has its skeptics. One of them is Barry Sandrew, founder of Legend 3D and one who has been around the entertainment industry for a long time. Sandrew invented the colorization process used in updating many black and white films and was a pioneer in 3D conversion of films as recently as 2007.

VR will be used in surgery and have applications, principally in gaming and, perhaps, in education, but, says Sandrew: “I am giving a different perspective after working in the trenches of Hollywood…Investment interest peaked but is now diminishing…People want to be witness to a movie and not a participant,” said Sandrew, citing surveys that indicate a lack of interest by the general public. Just like colorization, he added, it is “not everyone’s cup of tea.”

Sandrew’s views were part of the first presentation of its kind in San Diego that looked at the future of virtual reality. The conference at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice attracted VR enthusiasts as well as many who came to hear about its prospects in storytelling, health, education and other applications.

Unlike Sandrew, Brian Levine, founder of the local VR Startup group, sees VR taking off in the near future among the general public because components, such as goggles used for viewing, are coming down in price. Also, he demonstrated how the general public, including his parents and son, have acclimated themselves to the technology.

The conference spent a considerable amount of time reviewing how VR is used in narrative storytelling, including journalism. Matt DeJohn of VRTUL Inc. demonstrated how he and the Asian Heritage Society produced a historical documentation in VR of the Vietnamese-American experience, in marking 41 years since the fall of Saigon. The audience also viewed a Ted Talk presentation by journalist Nonny dela Pena, who showed how she captured two events, including a bombing in Syria, by replicating it digitally. Dean Nelson, professor of journalism at Point Loma Nazarene University, questioned whether this was true journalism.

“The word ‘virtual’ (means) it’s not literally true. Journalism is what literally happens, not a recreation or retelling,” Nelson said, also questioning whether a digital representation of an event used to raise money for a cause, as the Syria documentation did, should be branded as “advocacy journalism.” By “trying to move you to care or give money, it just isn’t telling you the truth…but multiple truths,” Nelson added.

Other uses of VR in health and education were discussed, including the treatment of emotional disorders such as post-traumatic stress. Arno Hartholt, one of the founders of the USC Institute of Creative Technologies, demonstrated the creation of digital characters that actually interact with humans, saying he sees that as “a leading force in creating experiences how we teach, train and help.” The institute has worked closely with the U.S. Army on several training projects.

How to make money with VR was also explored by a panel that included SDSU professor Bernie Dodge and branding expert Bennett Peji. Everyone agreed that despite some of the limitations of VR, it is an “immersive experience that can excite kids,” in Dodge’s words.
