Assembly member Rob Bonta, chair of the API Legislative Caucus said: “Governor Brown has selected three outstanding legal minds who will uphold the highest ideals of our judicial system.” “It’s critical that our judiciary reflects our communities. As the fastest growing population in California, Asian Pacific Islanders have not been represented in appropriate numbers on the bench. This is a step in the right direction,” he said. Assembly member David Chiu, served as former president of the Asian American Bar Association of the Greater Bay Area, said: “While California has thousands of Asian Pacific Islander attorneys, our state's judges have not reflected our diverse communities." “At a time when the public's faith in governmental institutions is being challenged, we thank Governor Brown for appointing three of our best and brightest to carry out the duty of providing justice to all who appear before our judicial bench," said Chiu. Assembly member Evan Low, who is the chair of the subcommittee on appointments of the API Legislative Caucus, said: “In order for Californians to have confidence in the court system, our judiciary should reflect the rich diversity of our state.” “A diverse judiciary ensures a wider range of perspectives and allows for more decision-making power among underrepresented groups. I applaud Governor Brown for bringing us one step closer to a truly representative judiciary with the appointment of three Asian Pacific Islanders to Superior Court judge-ships,” he said.

Dhola-Sadiya Bridge will bring prosperity to Northeast India May 26, 2017 10:30

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the Dhola-Sadiya Bridge on Wednesday, which is the longest bridge in the nation that straddles Brahmaputra river. In a series of tweets Narendra Modi described the bridge as one one of the most important infrastructure projects to be undertaken in India. The bridge connects Dhola with Sadiya in Asssam’s Tinsukia district and has been constructed over across the Rivers Brahmaputra. The construction works began in 2011 under the aegis of the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways in public sharing partnership with a private firm, Navayuga Engineering Company Limited. The bridge was scheduled to be completed in 2015 and operational from December in the same year, but the construction works were delayed. Construction of the bridge costed about 10 billion rupees and took six years to complete. The bridge is 3.1 kilometers longer than the Bandra Worli Sea Link in Mumbai, making it the longest in India. It is 12.9 meter-wide along with a two-lane connecting road from Dhola Bazaar top Islampur Tiniali. It will take about 30 minutes to cross over to Sadiya near the Lohit border in Arunach and will reduce the travel time by four hours. B. Surya Raju, the chief project manager led the construction expert team for the bridge, and under the supervision of the Director of Navayuga Engineering Company Limited, K. Jagadishwara Rao The significance of the bridge: −The bridge will be one of the most vital links in the North-East India. It will not only give a relief to the existing transport network, but also attract several development activities that will increases the vehicular movement. −Any investment in this area is extremely desirable after qualifying the judgment criteria for social opportunity cost. −Better supply chain management by keeping supply price controlled and ensuring the timely distribution. −It will result in facilitating marketable surplus and checking price distortion, which in turn will enhance production activities. −It will expedite industrial investments. −It will provide access to health and educational facilities. −It will promote tourism in the region. −It will increase in border trade between Arunachal Pradesh and other South ASEAN (Association of South-East Asian Countries) Countries. −From a strategic point of view, there is no other bridge across the Brahmaputra River except Kaliabor Bridge in Central Assam. Throughout the 375 kilometers of river bank in the state there is no bridge for transportation. In the upstream after 120 kilometer there is a bridge available, but it travels through hilly terrain on north bank. Currently all the transport are being carried out only through water. The new bridge will improve the entire transport system of North Assam. −The bridge will serve important logistics for the Indian Army personnel for Indo-China border at Arunachal Pradesh. AMandeep

Indian embassies around the world to mark International Day of Yoga May 25, 2017 12:58

As the International Day of Yoga (IDY) is on 21st June, the Narendra Modi government has launched extensive preparations to mark the third IDY at a much greater scale than previous two years, Particularly in North America, Europe and China. This year’s celebration is not just to spread awareness about India’s civilization ethos and strengthen the country’s soft diplomacy. But to put a check to the cultural appropriation of the ancient Indian practice by what is termed ‘western Yoga’. The ‘western Yoga’, is gaining immense popularity in the western nation and does not acknowledge the significance that Yoga has with the ancient Indian culture. The western Yoga also focuses only on mere physical exercises that are bereft of yoga’s meditation and spiritual essence. The United Nations General Assembly designated 21st June as the International Day of Yoga at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s imitative. The Indian Embassies and consulates in North & South America, Europe, Australia and China are leading the way to hold month longs Yoga events that have already started and will go on till the third week of June. In 2015 and 2016 the IDY was marked as a daylong event. Indian Embassy and consulates in the United States have partnered with local Indian cultural organization to make the event a success. The Indian Embassy in Washington D.C., has partnered with the “Friends of Yoga,” which is a group of organization that include Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS), the overseas arm of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev’s Isha Foundation, Art of Living Foundation of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Brahma Kumaris, Swami Ramdev’s Patanjali, Hindu American Foundation, Association of United Hindu and Jain Temples, Gayatri Pariwar and other Indian community organizations. The HSS greatly supported the holding of Yoga day in 2015 and 2016, but this is the first time where the Indian Embassy has brought HSS and Patanjali on board as “officials partners” on its dedicated website for the event at dcyogaday.org A spokesperson for RSS in Delhi said that  the Indian embassies will routinely invite Indian cultural outfits to help hold events and celebrate Indian festivals. In January, the United States House of Representatives took note of the HSS’ annual ‘Surya Namaskar Yajna’ or ‘Health for Humanity Yogathon’, which the HSS holds as part of its annual Makar Sankranti celebrations. Not only in the United States, but across the world Indian embassies have collaborated with city authorities to hold Yoga day celebrations. In D.C., the event will be held on June 21 at National Mall. In Chicago, a preparatory Yoga event was held on May 17 and the consulate will hold the main event on June 24. In the capital of Spain, Madrid the event will be held on June 18 and in France capital, Paris on June 17. While in Germany Capital, Berlin on 21 June. In India, PM Modi will mark the event with 55,000 people in Lucknow on June 21. The central government is making detailed plans to have senior ministers perform Yoga in key state capitals. In China, more than thousand people took part in a Yoga event on Saturday in Wuyi, Zhejiang province. According to the Indian consulate, the event was organized along with the People’s Government of Wuyi County. Wuyi’s mayor said at the event that just as Buddhism had bound the civilizations of India and China together, Yoga also has the potential to promote values of harmony and peace between the two nations. The Indian embassy in Beijing will be organizing several yoga events across the country over the next one month. The chief of HSS, Ved Nanda has sent out an appeal to the Indian community to make the Yoga day a success. He said that the International Day of Yoga is an opportunity where “we can give back to our karmabhoomi (US) the best part of our collective inheritance –Yoga.” He also stressed on the spiritual aspects of Yoga “As you know, Yoga is not a mere tool for physical fitness but more importantly is a beacon for individual’s upliftment,” he said. He said the Yoga Day events will involve all regardless of their race, faith, gender, nationality or any other similar barrier. Whereas in India, the Press Information Bureau (PIB) has encouraging young people for month-long internship program for media and publicity related work for the Yoga day.

Shopping in Bay Area is not expensive after all May 25, 2017 09:25

The world is well aware of the fact, how expensive the cost of living is in the Bay Area. Everything from housing to cocktails have a higher price tags than other parts of the United States. But according to a new study conducted by a retail sales research firm ‘Observa’ found, while accounting for different income level groups. That you are better off shopping in the Bay Area for some items than in other metro cities. For example it costs 396% more to buy healthy groceries in New Orleans than Palo Alto and that for parents shopping for newborn, products cost 215% more in Tucson than in San Francisco. Observa CEO Hugh Holman said: “What we found is there is a discrepancy in cost once we take into account average income.” Observa analyzed more specialized basket of goods by looking at the prices of goods that fit into certain lifestyles such as healthy foods, baby products, and items for retirees and older citizens. The costs of the goods vary among the cities and brands. Some brands price items the same across the country, while the others price them differently. Few goods are marked by the retailers and not necessarily by the brand. But, by using the median income in each area according to the Census Information of the U.S., Observa compared and showed the percentage of the typical paycheck it takes to buy those products. Organic bananas cost 89 cents in New Orleans and 99 cents in Palo Alto, the difference is not huge, but cuts into the average household income, which is $36,792 per year in New Orleans and in Palo Alto it is $136,519. “Because real estate in the Bay Area is expensive, conversation tends to drift towards all your expenses. But in reality, it can be cheaper for people to eat healthy in a place like San Jose,” Holman said. “It’s not what I expected to see; I thought it would more expensive in high-income areas because the market can bear more expensive goods.” Demand for healthy products is growing in the nation. More than 28% of people buy organic products on a regular basis. But in New Orleans the percentage of income required to buy organic food is 11.1%, while in Palo Alto it is just 2.8% and 5.0% in San Francisco. The average spending on baby products requires 8.8% of the median income in Tucson, while it is 6.1% in Boston and 4.1% in San Francisco. The report is the first segmented basket of goods study by Observa, which plans to expand the study to more cities and to different lifestyle segments. Bay Area tightened security measures AMandeep
