Chaldean Business Woman Shares a Bit of Christmas Jewelry Joy
By Rita Abro :: 21754 Views :: Business & Finance

Arizona, USA - Chaldeans are helping to set new trends this Christmas.  “Out is the worn out practice of buying brand name gifts from malls.  In is finding the unique and rare custom gift that really shows you care, says Julie Polis.  “Finding something that really shows you care has absolutely nothing to do with how expensive the gift is, but how much thought went into getting the gift.”

Polis, like many other Chaldeans are looking for unique and custom gifts to give.  “Portrait painting, embroidered photos, custom music of jewelry, a sculpture, or bronzed shoes of the new child, are all good examples of great gifts,” says Polis.  “The gift has to be memorable.  To be memorable it has to be unique.  There is this great Chaldean jeweler in Arizona that has her own jewelry line.  She hand-makes these limited edition masterpieces that are perfect for that special someone.”

Polis refers to Nat’s Candy.  A custom jewelry boutique based in Arizona and owned by Chaldean entrepreneur Natalie Karmo.  The former actress turned artist was featured as Arizona’s top artist.  Her company has been featured in top fashion magazines.  Her jewelry line includes unique designs of gemstones and Swarovski crystal.  The limited edition production jewelry has made her the talk of the town.

By Sabah Hajjar :: 43419 Views :: Community & Culture, Business & Finance

Michigan, USA - Chaldean artist, author, and historian Amer Fatuhi looks to raise funds for the English translation release of his definitive and encyclopedia work titled, The Untold Story of the Native Iraqis / Chaldeans.   The book authoritatively documents the cradle of civilization circa 5300 BC until present time.  The first edition was written in Arabic and has received rave reviews.  Now, Fatuhi hopes to have the 400 page academic study translated into the Franca lingua of the modern world; English. 

The diligent author worked two yeas and spent over a quarter of century researching the history of the region.  The book illuminates the antiquity of Babylon and the indigenous people of the region next to other well known and obscure ethnic groups.  The books exquisite maps, illustrations, historical documents, and research weave a compelling documentary of Iraq’s long history.  Fatuhi captures the struggles of the Jewish people alongside Chaldeans and other Iraqi natives as they move through time.

Dr. Abdul Hadi Al Khalili, America’s cultural Attaché at the Embassy of Iraq gives the book high remarks and considers the work worthy of academic and historical value. 

Hoping to release the English translation of his Arabic second edition by the end of 2008, Fatuhi seeks supporting donors.  “The world needs to hear the The Untold Story of the Native Iraqis, which has been suppressed for centuries, wiped out from the Iraqi educational system, and the public domain,” says the author.

Chaldean Business Leaders Choose The Right Business Legal Structure
By Bedre Konja :: 17680 Views :: Business & Finance

One question that Chaldeans must answer when starting a business is “What legal business structure is the best for their business?”  This is one of the most important questions a Chaldean entrepreneur must ask.  Particularly for Chaldeans who plan on providing goods or services to residents trapped in high crime areas. 

The business legal form can have significant implications on the amount of money Chaldeans pay in taxes, their personal risk in the business, as well as their ability to get loans or raise money. Prior to making a final decision Chaldean entrepreneurs should religiously explore their options. 

Chaldeans have a handful of options when choosing what legal form their business is to take.  There legal forms are sole proprietorships, partnerships, limited liability companies/partnerships (LLCs /LLPs), and incorporations (either C-corporations or S-corporations).  The idea is to structure your business in the best way possible to help you succeed. 

What follows here are the issues of liability protection, business appreciation, active versus passive income, and retrained earnings in the business.  Chaldean entrepreneurs should understand how their business should be structured in order to help them when dealing with these issues.

Small Business Wins in Supreme Court
By Crystal Dallo :: 36546 Views :: Business & Finance


California, USA - Chaldeans are fast learning the importance of legislation and politics and how the two can impact their business bottom line.  The Chaldean Caucus has long banged the drums of needing business savvy politicians from local to federal positions.  In Michigan, the Caucus moved forward in promoting and supporting three Chaldean political hopefuls.  Two of which have extensive business backgrounds. 

The Chaldean Caucus also monitors the judicial bench and the rulings they make that impact business.  The Supreme Court's 2006–2007 term was particularly kind to the small business community. The Chaldean Caucus estimate that at least half of the docket included cases with a substantial business interest. Here's a review of some major decisions for Chaldean small-business owners:

Chaldean Business Leaders Say Apology Weak and Not Enough
By Rita Abro :: 41032 Views :: Business & Finance, Government & Society, Chaldean Justice League

Michigan, USA - It has turned out to be a community call-to-the-test. Chaldeans in Michigan have taken a firm stance against Miller brewing company.  The South African company was recently put on notice by religious leaders to stop supporting hate groups.  South African Brewery Miller, also known as SABMiller or Miller beer has been giving nearly $100,000 annually to the San Francisco Folsom Street Fair which encourages and promotes Christian mockery and hate. 

A grassroots group of Chaldean community leaders have begun an active and aggressive campaign against Miller in hopes the multinational company will see the error of its way.

Chaldeans Strongly Band Togther to Boycott Miller Brewing
By Rita Abro :: 53935 Views :: Community & Culture, Business & Finance, Government & Society
Michigan, USA - Chaldeans are outraged at the deliberate attack on Christians by San Francisco and the Homosexual Fair organizers.  “This is a group that behaves appallingly and if anyone objects to their criminal behavior they call you intolerant and try to charge you for a hate crime,” says Brian Thomas about the fair.  “These hypocrites mock and attack Christians with such violence and hate and yet no one in San Francisco cares to uphold the law.  The fraudulent leaders of San Francisco have no values, no principals, and no idea of how harmful they are to the United States.” 

Miller brewing company has come under immense pressure once the Catholic League exposed Miller’s support on the attack and hatred of Christians.  The Catholic group called for a boycott of the Miller Brewing Co. after the beer giant failed to have its logo removed from a "gay"-festival promo mocking the iconic Last Supper scene of Jesus Christ and his disciples.

For Mike and Rita Setto, owners of Orion Keg and Wine Party Store, the constant attack on the Christian faith and family values from the media and support by corporations has gone much too far.  In what seems to be a reenactment of David versus Goliath the small business owners were the first to toss Miller out of their establishment.  The bold move has earned the faithful family thousands of calls, coverage by top news agencies, requests to be interviewed on radio and television, and visits from out-of-state customers congratulating the faithful duo for taking a stand.

Chaldeans Making Green While Going Green
By Bedre Konja :: 24 Views :: Business & Finance

Michigan, USA - Detroit-based NextEnergy, the state's alternative energy incubator, was excited when Mark Yaldo decided to get involved.  Mr. Yaldo, owner of the Southfield Sunoco became the first Ethanol 85 alternative fueling station, located in Southfield Michigan. 

The pioneering entrepreneur boldly claims that caring for customers and the planet are not contradicting concepts.  His mission to help establish and encourage other entrepreneurs install biofuel pump options throughout metro Detroit struck a cord with the state’s Governor.

Governor Granholm personally made a visit to help Mr. Yaldo launch his grand opening.  The two stood side-by-side as they cut the ceremonial red ribbon and opened the biofuel pump.  To further entice and encourage customers to use the alternative fuel, Mr. Yaldo offered a gallon of E85 way below cost at $2.49. 

How did it go?

Chaldean Greg Acho Lends a Nurturing Hand
By Evon Elias :: 52811 Views :: Health & Fitness, Religion & Spirituality, Business & Finance, Government & Society

California, USA - In the life of every being that walks this planet, there is a purpose that is to be fulfilled before their time here is complete. Whether it be carrying out a career that may change the lives of many, creating a family of his own and protecting them, or just living a life that is alive with faith, hope and love… every mission is unique. It is vital in life to have confidence in understanding that the value of every accomplishment and deed done, be it big or small, is still so very great. For it is in the words of the Blessed Mother Theresa who proclaimed that, “Little things are indeed little, but to be faithful in little things is a great thing.”

Over in The Golden State, better known as California, a great man by the name of Gregory Acho is believed to have found what so many seek: their calling in life. But this calling, this purpose he prays to fulfill successfully, is not for his own pleasure, but is for people in his community that he yearns to reach out to and help by leading them to an improved stage in their life.

Acho, 30, founder of Conscious Contact, Inc., a non-profit sober living organization (rehabilitation clinic) are helping Americans overcome the strenuous process of staying sober. Acho adds that it is not as simple as it sounds, just “staying sober” or fighting an addiction, but that it is “[much] deeper than that. We provide support for each person to look within themselves and make contact, Conscious Contact, with who and what they have always been.”

Raad Yono Calls it a Stick-Up
By Sam Yousif :: 12 Views :: Business & Finance

Chaldean business consultant Raad Yono says Wal-Mart’s alignment with liberal causes is out of threat and fear.  “Wal-Mart has been bullied around by Democrats and forced to give to causes they traditionally would not align with,” says Yono.  The consultant responding after www.CHALDEAN.org reported of Wal-Mart’s contribution to homosexual causes and decision to carry the abortion pill. 

The retailer has always cherished successful values that enrich lives and lay the foundation for success Yono says.  “But the pressure from Democrats has become unbearable as political operatives put the squeeze on Wal-Mart and coerce them into supporting liberal causes that run counter to Wal-Mart’s success.”

 Wal-Mart may be expanding in the People's Republic of China, but here in capitalist America the low-price retailer has become the Democratic Party's favorite pinata. The media like to portray this as a populist uprising against heartless big business. But what they don't bother to disclose is that this entire get-Wal-Mart campaign is a political operation led and funded by organized labor and the Democratic party.

Best Buy a Bad Deal Says Shaya
By Sam Yousif :: 19 Views :: Business & Finance

Michigan, USA – Activist Abeer Shaya sees the writing on the wall.  A law student at University of Michigan and scholar of religious history, Shaya says Christian humiliation is a precursor to Christian persecution.  “In ancient times, Christians were mocked, harassed, belittled, and humiliated.  Kids were taught Christians ate their children and were the cause of natural disasters because they refused to worship many Gods.”

The Chaldean legal and historical scholar adds that Christians were first humiliated and then made to be scapegoats.  “While Christians kept to themselves, their values and virtues made them act in ways that drew attention from Romans.  They acted piously and their virtues and values contrasted with the Roman way of life.  Humiliation and insult is the building of a runway so the plane of persecution can land.”
 
Shaya adds that Christians today are obviously under attack; their holidays are corrupted, stripped, and commercialized into meaninglessness by anti-Christian groups.   As the Christmas season draws near Chaldeans like Shaya are making clear they are steering away of businesses that attempt to dilute or corrupt the Christmas holy day.  

Best Buy has announced they will be using "Happy Holidays" this coming Christmas shopping season, and they will not be using "Merry Christmas."

Merchant of Vino, Ed Jonna Turns into Plum
By Sam Yousif :: 30 Views :: Business & Finance

Michgian, USA - "There's over 100 growers within a two-hour drive from here ... we're talking about Michigan blueberries, peaches, apples and honey," he said. "Whenever we're able to support our local farmers, that's what we're going to do," says Mathew Jonna. 

Rebounding from their sale of the Merchant of Vino, the Jonna family has kept a low profile.  According to Matt Jonna, son of Merchant of Vino owner Ed Jonna and a managing partner in the family business, Whole Foods approached the Jonnas with an offer too good to resist: 1.03 million shares of common stock, valued at an excess of $40 million.

Many in the Chaldean community thought the family would embark on community philanthropy.  “It is well known that great business people find ways to help others.  Many thought the Jonna family would do just that, start scholarships, foundations, community centers, or help remove barriers holding other Chaldeans back,” says Jamal Aboud, financial advisor and banker.  “It seems they are not quite done focusing all their efforts on business.  It will be exciting to see what they come up with next.”
