Hunting Down the Right Job
By CE&CC :: 61446 Views :: Career & Education, Business & Finance, Chaldean Education & Career Center
Michigan, USA - Chaldeans should know that a job search is less like a sprint and more like a marathon.  Without this attitude, Chaldean job-hunters will view every day as a laborious burden that does not produce results. You’ll risk losing focus, motivation, and direction. You’ll neither write nor interview well, and your search may take even longer.

In today’s challenging job market, many Chaldean job-hunters are finding that the search takes somewhat more time than they anticipated. Regardless of what expectations you may have or may hear, Chaldeans should assume a time frame of at least 10 months for their search. Chaldeans in Michigan, due to their poor economic condition and high taxes, should consider a year to a year and a half.

Chaldean Scholar Publishes Study on Rape, Women and International Law
By Rita Abro :: 62494 Views :: Health & Fitness, Career & Education, Government & Society

Michigan, USA - The increasing disgust and hyper-sexualization in the media has one Chaldean scholar seeking answers.  Phyllis Easter Jeden is a first-generation Chaldean-American born and raised in metro-Detroit.  The pre-law student at Central Michigan University is perusing studies in International, Minority, and Human Rights Law.   

Jeden, like most Chaldeans and Americans has grown increasingly concerned over television advertising portraying women as nothing more than sex objects. “I am appalled by some of the things that the media culture tries to mainstream and celebrate.  This has hurt America and has undermined our ability to speak to the world about values.  Just look at the amount of cleavage you see worn by younger and younger women (and girls) in the supermarket, on the bus, in church?” 

Rather than sit idly by and adopt a hopeless attitude Jeden decide to act.  In her recently published study Jeden tackles the impact of sexualization of women in media and how such efforts harm women.  The study Rape, Women and International Law began as a response to such everyday irritants.  However, the study quickly began revealing much more about the insidious sexualization of women in media and other mainstream venues in societies across the world.

Community Celebrates The First American Chaldean Woman to Enter The Convent
By Evon Elias :: 127 Views :: Career & Education, Religion & Spirituality, Community & Culture

Michigan, USA - With a desire to leave a world with constant haste and alacrity and unite to a life of passive ways and tranquility, one of our very own members of the Chaldean community is answering the call of the Lord to be at His side throughout the years to come.
 
A new chapter is to begin in the life of teenage Michigan resident, Candice Kassab, who will not turn 18 until the 25th of February.  “She’s been having a calling for the past three years and one day she just felt it so deeply and said that it was eating away at her conscious, and just told us that she was going to give in and become a nun. We couldn’t believe it”, commented 21-year-old sister, Jennifer Kassab. However, despite the age, Candice is determined that as she walks this new path, her passionate and dedicated spirit will be accompanied by the strength of the Heavenly Father, His Son and the Holy Mother as well.

Self-Esteem, Confidence, and Empowerment Key for Chaldean Girls says Dr. Dalia Issa
By Rita Abro :: 19 Views :: Health & Fitness, Career & Education

Michigan, USA - Dalia Issa has been counseling others since she was a teenager.  “Growing up with five sisters made me a natural for this career,” says Dr. Issa.  “I was the oldest and since my parents had a hard time understanding the American culture and the language I often took charge.  When my younger sisters had questions I had to balance the social issues, our Chaldean customs and culture, and the peer pressure they were feeling.”

Dr. Issa is partner in a family coaching center in Bloomfield Hills.  The firm has over six partners, twenty associates, and a staff of nearly forty.  With revenues toppling ten million the group is considered one of the more influential experts in parental training.

“There is no other occupation that impacts society more than parenting.  The role of a parent and family is the nucleus of a community, a culture, a nation.  When I worked as a family psychologist it surprised me that there really were no formal courses or instruction for parents to deal with contemporary issues.  I started the firm with a handful of friends and colleagues and we have been growing ever since,” says Issa.

Michigan, USA – The Chaldean Education and Career Center was notified today that the Michigan Department of Education will administer next spring the new Michigan Merit Exam (MME), which will include a free ACT test for high school juniors.

The state has been awaiting official word from the U.S. Department of Education (USDOE) about whether the MME will be approved to use for school accountability purposes as part of the federal No Child Left Behind Act.

Failings Schools Leave Chaldeans With Few Choices
By Sam Yousif :: 8 Views :: Career & Education

Michigan, USA - College-aged Chaldeans are often faced with a difficult dilemma – go on to college or find work to help their parents.  As immigrants many Chaldean parents struggle to find jobs, or are increasingly forced to create a business so that they may have a job.   As such, the children are called into the business to help interpret, keep payroll costs down, and serve as a trusted resource to give the parents a break from the grueling 90 hour work-week.

The dilemma is unfair for a majority of the young Chaldean adults hungry for a college education that leads to a reliable and highly regarded professional life.

Troy Public School Chaldean Students at Risk
By Sam Yousif :: 14 Views :: Career & Education, Law & Order

Michigan, USA - Chaldean Alumni of Troy Athens public high school in Michigan, USA is at risk of identity theft due to a stolen computer hard drive.  The computer hard drive was taken from the district and contained all the necessary information needed to compromise a student’s identity.  Through an investigation, the school learned that students’ transcripts, test scores, addresses, family names,  and Social Security numbers were saved on the stolen drive.

The Troy School District and Superintendent mailed out a letter to former students of the high school who graduated from 1994 to present indicating that former students will be given 14 months of free credit monitoring services. 

Pressure from the grass roots student alumni movement formerly known as the Unhappy Student Organization, renamed to Troy Athens Voice is working to have the 14 month credit monitoring service extended. 

Chaldean students who graduated from the Troy public school system must apply for the free services before December 31, 2006 year.  Chaldean students of Troy can apply online.

Marian High School in Michigan Defends Their Convictions
By Sam Yousif :: 26 Views :: Career & Education, Religion & Spirituality, Government & Society

Michigan, USA - Students, family members, teachers, employees, and alumni of Marian high school are outraged.  The all-girl private Catholic high school has come under attack by homosexual activists.  “The gay people, TV, and newspapers want us to do something wrong and we will not.  They talk too much about sex these people.  This is sick of them.  That is why I don’t want any of my children, nephews, nieces, or anyone I know to go to public school.  They want you to believe that the way you behave is okay if you can make others say it is okay,” says  Enam Bahoura, a Chaldean parent. 

The nationally-acclaimed Catholic high school with a large enrollment of Chaldeans finds themselves under target of the local papers for teaching their religious convictions.  Both the Detroit News and Detroit Free Press, owned by Gannett News ran what many in southeast Michigan feel are biased articles to promote the homosexual agenda.

Bushra Butres Runs For Cajon Valley School Board
By Ziad Bitti :: 56122 Views :: Career & Education, Government & Society

California, USA – Chaldean Bushra Butres challenges the old guard of the Cajon Valley school board, which oversees a district of 28 elementary and middle schools in the inner city and more rural neighborhoods. 

Incumbents Marsha L. Saben, Jill D. Barto and Jane Cruz Alfano are being challenged by  Bushra “Nissou” Butres in the Nov. 7 election.

The Cajon Valley districty has a large population of Chaldeans and Assyrians but is poorly represented in school policy or understanding.  Many in the community have long sought a qualified candidate to bring a unique perspective of the challenges new citizens in the Cajon Valley schools face.  Many in the Chaldean community feel Butres is the right person for the job.

By Rita Abro :: 12 Views :: Career & Education

California, USA - Chaldeans in the Detroit public school system endured the take-over now Chaldeans in Los Angles get their turn of a Mayoral take-over.

Chaldeans who can afford to send their kids to private school have done so in large numbers.  Others unable to afford both the school tax and tuition cost remain trapped.
