Community Initiative Launches to Raise Awareness and Stop Anti-Asian Hate

Apr 16, 2021

The Yellow Whistle™ to be distributed for protection and solidarityNew York City, New York Apr 17, 2021 (Issuewire.com) - Over one year of continuous acts of violence and harassment targeting the Asian community, specifically against the Chinese community in the United States, the America China Public Affairs Institute, and its state committee the Chinese Community Relations Council is joining The Yellow Whistle and support its effort by distributing the whistles to the community and spreading the awareness.This new initiative is spearheaded by Agnes Hsu-Tang, an archaeologist and international cultural heritage policy advisor on the faculty at Columbia University and a trustee of the New York Historical Society. Beginning April 19, customized yellow whistles with the words "We Belong" will be distributed through a network of community-based organizations."The Yellow Whistle is a symbol of self-protection and solidarity in our common fight against historical discrimination and anti-Asian violence," said Agnes Hsu-Tang. "The whistle is a simple gadget with a universal purpose--to signal alarm and call for help. We chose the color yellow because it has been weaponized as a mark of xenophobia against Asians throughout American history. We are whistleblowing to fight back against the stereotype that Asians are a silent minority. We stand proudly as Americans--with all Americans--because we belong.""In recent months, I have been very concerned about the attacks on Asian Americans which have been taking place across the country," said Oscar Tang, a New York financier, philanthropist, and co-founder of The Yellow Whistle initiative. "In an attempt to do something about it, we've come up with The Yellow Whistle as a way to help.""The Yellow Whistle initiative is unique and innovative, and we are happy to be in partnership with The Yellow Whistle," said Fred Teng, President of America China Public Affairs Institute, "Since last March there has been a tidal wave of violence targeting Chinese Americans. Over 3,795 cases were documented. While many in the community have discussed about acquiring guns or carrying pepper spray, we felt The Yellow Whistle provides a safe and legal alternative."The Yellow Whistle can be used by a victim to call for help, it can also be used by a bystander to alert a violent or harassment action, and by simply wearing the whistle on the wrist symbolizes the support and alertness of anti-Asian violence."We will start to distribute The Yellow Whistles initially in the greater New York City area," said Charles Pei Wang, Chairman of Chinese Community Relations Council of New York, "and then we will expand the distributions to the communities across the nation, including Philadelphia, Boston, Washington DC, Houston, Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle."To learn about The Yellow Whistle, please visit theyellowwhistle.orgPress Contacts: For inquiries regarding The Yellow Whistle campaign, please contact theyellowwhistle@gmail.com.

Indian vaping group co-hosts launch of report on Asia tobacco control measures

Apr 16, 2021

Mumbai, Maharashtra Apr 17, 2021 (Issuewire.com) - The Association of Vapers India (AVI) is co-hosting the launch of a pan-Asia tobacco control report on Sunday, April 18, that will address the unresolved smoking epidemic in Asia and the Far East which results in 4 million premature deaths annually and highlight the opportunity to prevent these deaths through the harm reduction strategy.AVI has partnered with the public health agency Knowledge Action Change (KAC) to organise the launch of the regional report, 'Tobacco Harm Reduction: A Burning Issue for Asia and the Far East.Jagannath Sarangapani, a consumer advocate and a member of the board of AVI, will serve as moderator of the event, which will also get country perspectives from experts in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines and New Zealand.Written by British author and journalist Harry Shapiro, the report notes that 60 percent of the world's smokers live in Asia, along with 90 percent of consumers of smokeless tobacco products, resulting in millions of preventable deaths every year as the majority of those who want to quit smoking have no access to support services."Many of these deaths are preventable if only tobacco users had access to safer nicotine products that are affordable, accessible, appropriate and acceptable," Shapiro said.Samrat Chowdhery, director of AVI and president of International Network of Nicotine Consumer Organizations (INNCO), a global consumer advocacy group comprising 40 national and regional bodies, said the region has nearly 750 million smokers and just 19 million vapers. "The report makes a strong case for tobacco harm reduction strategies in the ongoing battle to reduce tobacco-related mortality and morbidity," Chowdhery said, adding, "I hope there are government and industry efforts to make low-risk alternatives affordable to users in low-income groups."Noting that a barrage of misinformation and anti-THR propaganda is getting in the way of public health progress in Asia, Shapiro said, "There are big challenges but also opportunities for tobacco harm reduction in the region and the report aims to assist policymakers in navigating through them."Media ContactPratik Gupta, Director - Association of Vapers Indiapratikg@vapeindia.org+91 86555 55553 Source :Association of Vapers India This article was originally published by IssueWire.

Apr 16, 2021

Excellence in Community Service Award Student Providing COVID Vaccination \"Gurnick Academy of Medical Arts is a great example of what schools can do even during a pandemic!\" said Robert Johnson, California Association of Post-Secondary Schools (CAPPS) executive director. SAN MATEO, Calif. - April 16, 2021 - (Newswire.com) Gurnick Academy of Medical Arts received word on Wednesday, March 24, they placed first or Gold for the 2021 CAPPS Excellence in Community Service Award. The award was first established in 2016 and seeks to recognize schools demonstrating exceptional commitment and service within their communities.  "Gurnick Academy of Medical Arts is a great example of what schools can do even during a pandemic!" said Robert Johnson, California Association of Post-Secondary Schools (CAPPS) executive director. "Gurnick Academy of Medical Arts' multiple and continuous service to its community, including supporting COVID-related services to the affected public, demonstrates their desire to lift the communities they serve," said Johnson. "Institutions like Gurnick Academy of Medical Arts make California a better place."   For consideration, the school put forth more than 12 pages highlighting their community service, outreach, and volunteerism achieved by students and staff within the past year. In the application were multiple coronavirus relief efforts, including an instance where the San Mateo County Health Department made an urgent request of the school for help at a residential care facility for seniors affected by COVID-19. The call sought to mitigate a staffing shortage where medical personnel had walked out, and students filled the gap.  "This event led to the county recommending us to other medical facilities when looking for help and volunteers," said Fred Faridian, Gurnick Academy of Medical Arts' San Mateo Campus director. "We have established a strong working relationship with the medical community." 2020 provided students with many volunteer opportunities, including Coronavirus testing, distributing Pfizer-BioNTech inoculations, supplementing clinic workforces, and serving as auxiliary staff to tired responders staffing drive-thru clinics. Other philanthropic endeavors included helping at flu clinics, supporting food and clothing drives, answering Christmas lists at homeless shelters, and supporting the Walk to End Alzheimer's cause. "I am extremely proud of what our campuses and students do to give back to their communities, especially in these challenging times," said Burke Malin, Gurnick Academy of Medical Arts' chief executive officer. "Knowing how much our students have stepped forward in this last year demonstrated to me that we made the right choices when admitting them into our allied health programs. I would be honored to have any of them take care of my family or me." A video that highlights the philanthropic and volunteer efforts can be found at https://vimeo.com/gurnick/capps-excellence-community-service-award-2021.

Shield My Deal Now Open to the Public

Apr 16, 2021

April 17, 2021 - /PressAdvantage/ - April 16, 2021. Los Angeles, California: Based in Santa Monica, CA, ShieldMyDeal™ is a group of real estate industry experts focused on helping home sellers and home buyers get a better real estate deal. The way the real estate environment is today, sellers and buyers need as much information and protection as possible to ensure they maximize their return on their investment or ROI. Real estate expert Barry A. was quoted saying, “ShieldMyDeal™ offers a novel way of helping people through the real estate process. There are so many pitfalls in the process that anyone selling or buying real estate must have full protection or face possible losses that can amount to thousands of dollars.” He also said, “After all, an uninformed real estate buyer or seller will often end up making poor decisions.” Any and all decisions made during the deal should be accompanied by the necessary data to maximize profits from the transaction. This is where Shield My Deal comes in. It is a real estate consulting platform designed to help sellers and buyers get a great agent and a better real estate deal. But what people must understand about the company is that it does not represent the buyer and seller simultaneously during the real estate deal. The company will represent the buyer or the seller but not both. States company spokesperson B. Simms, “We have come up with a way that real estate buyers and sellers can help protect their deal. However, we want to be sure that either the sellers’ or the buyers’ interests are best represented. This is why our company will not represent both during a purchase or sale.” She continued, “If we are to protect the full interests of a person or company during the real estate deal, we must protect one or the other. Trying to protect both creates a conflict of interest where we often have to choose one over the other.” She went on to say, “We never want to be placed in a situation where we have to choose one over the other. It is unethical to tell the seller and the buyer during the deal that their interests are fully covered. Therefore, we represent either a buyer or a seller all the way from beginning to end.” What users of the platform should know is that the ShieldMyDeal™ corporate headquarters are in Los Angeles, California. In fact, the company is located in Santa Monica, but it serves and represents home buyers, home sellers, and real estate investors throughout the United States. If home buyers or home sellers want to use the platform, they must first sign up on the platform before they hire a real estate agent. Anyone having already signed with a real estate agent cannot use the ShieldMyDeal™ platform or the protection it offers. The company will be involved from the beginning to the end of the real estate transaction, making sure that the user is protected. What the company does is to review and suggest the best course of action to its clients based on industry expertise, data, and technology. Any transaction documents or situations can be included to help the client make better, more well-informed decisions, so the client or investor can get a better real estate deal. Simply fill out the form and a company representative will reach out for more information and to help through the process ShieldMyDeal™ helps home sellers and buyers better understand their options when faced with decisions, so they get a better real estate deal. To find out more about how ShieldMyDeal™ can protect, visit the website and the Google My Business listing. ###For more information about Shield My Deal, contact the company here:Shield My DealBrian O'Laughlin(424) 330-2790brian@shieldbrokerage.comShieldMyDeal™100 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 700Santa Monica, Ca 90401ReleaseID: 60042824
