U.S. House Speaker Pelosi Causes Firestrom Among Catholics
By Rita Abro :: 15363 Views :: Government & Society

[This article contains graphic videos.  Do not read this article if you can not handle mature images.]

California, USA –  Her comments will be on the mouths of Catholic clergy, catechist teachers, and around the holy water coolers.  “The recent presidential debate shined a bright light on Obama’s 100% support by NARAL, Planned Parenthood, and the right to kill babies groups,” says Jessica Isho, a Chaldean California Pro-Life member.  “Democrats say science trumps everything, right?  Every scientist tells you life begins at conception.  Obama is the worst of politicians with no principals.  What does he care, I bet to him the misguided mothers are killing Christian babies, that is why he doesn’t care.”    

Coming to Obama’s defense was the U.S. House Speaker who many say stupidly threw fuel on the fire.  The Speaker was challenged over Obama’s inability to determine when life begins during an NBC “Meet the Press” TV show.  U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said like Obama, the church has been unable to determine when life begins.  The comments have causes a firestorm among Catholics, Chaldeans, and other Christians. 

Yesterday and today www.CHALDEAN.org received over 62 e-mails from Chaldeans regarding Pelosi’s comments.  Chaldeans are shocked at what she said.  “Pelosi purposely tries to confuse the issue and moral importance of abortion,” wrote Jenna Jajo.  “She is blatantly wrong that the church has been unable to define when life begins.  She is a despicable fraud and an insult to the state of California.  She is no Catholic. Anyone who supports abortion is not a Catholic.”

Teaching Your Pet to Learn the Chaldean Language
By Sue Garmo :: 22014 Views :: Living & Lifestyle

A great way to strengthen your Chaldean speaking skills is to speak to your pet in Chaldean.  Domesticated animals distinguish body language and then associate a sound to the expected behavior.  In short, animals, like humans can learn different languages. 

Combined with behavioral modification techniques your family pet can learn a long list of Chaldean commands.   However, the commands have to be combined with reinforcement.  The model is similar to the work of famed psychologist B.F. Skinner. 

The following video clips of Sheero demonstrate how positive reinforcement paired with the Chaldean language can help your family pet learn your language.

Chaldeans Fondly Remeber Tel-Kepe
By Huda Metti :: 32158 Views :: Living & Lifestyle, Community & Culture

Located a little more than 10 miles or 15 kilometers from Mosul there stands a, “Hill of Stones.”   For many Westerners this would seem to be an uninspiring and gloomy place to live.  However, to many Chaldeans the rich and fertile land of Tel-Kepe (Telkaif), Iraq was once a wondrous place of adventure, peace, and communal living.  In contrast to its name Tel-Kepe (The Hill of Stones) the region was quite fertile making many Chaldeans rural farmers living off the land and mastering the science of agriculture in some of the harshest of conditions.

A very high majority of the inhabitants of Tel-Kepe were Chaldean Catholics.  Indigenous people of the region who were converted to Christianity by Mar Addai and Mar Mari, disciples of St. Thomas and later merged with the Roman Catholic Church in the seventh century.

Controversy over Coptic Priest and Muslims in Michigan Sparks Freedom of Speech Issues
By Amer Hedow :: 30848 Views :: Government & Society, World News & Odds 'N' Ends

Michigan, USA - Refusing to submit, Egyptian Coptic Father Zakaria Botros tells listeners he will,” stop revealing the truth about Islam when my ten demands are met.”  The Coptic Priest is named Islam’s “Public Enemy #1” by the Arabic newspaper, al-Insan al-Jadid.  He has famously made of Islam “ten demands” whose radical nature he uses to highlight Islam’s own radical demands on non-Muslims.

The internationally renowned Coptic priest along with Muslim converts minces no words when addressing controversial topics of theological significance and touches on little-known but embarrassing aspects of Islamic law and tradition.  With rewards for his murder the priest fearlessly continues.  He has become a thorn in the side of Islamic leaders throughout the Middle East and now in the United States. 

Tensions in Dearborn, Michigan rise as Fr. Botros continues to challenge Islamic teachings.  Dearborn’s Arab American newspaper reports that local Imams have been fuming over the Coptic priest’s ongoing revelations of Islam. Fearing anger will turn to violence; Deaborn’s Imams have called on Birach Broadcast owner demanding changes be made.  The Imams have also appealed to Chaldean and other Middle Eastern Christian leaders requesting interfaith efforts to create the change they seek.

Is Your Bank Stealing From You?
By David Najor :: 22893 Views :: Business & Finance

California, USA - “Few would argue that the energetic entrepreneurs have transformed small business in metropolitan areas of Michigan, California, Illinois, Arizona, and Nevada,” says Rebecca Cohen of California’s Bank & Trust speaking of Chaldeans.  “They are hard-working, brilliant in business, and have a remarkable talent for negotiations.”

Although the accolades and praise rings true to many, Chaldean business owners still remind budding entrepreneurs to be mindful of banks when doing business. 

“Banks are like any other business.  Their inventory is currency.  They want to buy currency when it is inexpensive and sell or loan to you at a higher rate,” says Masood Bajou.  “Chaldeans in business or not, should always keep a close eye on their banks and the fees they charge.”

Increasingly, banks are finding ways to impose bigger and trickier fees on account holders.  Uncovering the creative ways banks assess fees and other hidden costs to their customers was no easy task.  Nonetheless, Chaldeans should be watchful over some of the sneakiest fees and quickly master ways you can avoid them...

By CE&CC :: 35565 Views :: Career & Education, Chaldean Education & Career Center

California, USA - Chaldean delivery driver, Salim Audesh beams with pride as nearly 3,500 California educators give his son, Fadi Shaya a standing ovation. 

The Shaya Christian home outside of Baghdad was blown up when he was 6.  When most children would be learning their multiplication tables in school, Fadi was learning to fire a rifle to deter Muslims who had beaten him unconscious several times.  When not helping his father defend the family, Fadi would be making deliveries by mule in Iraq.  Consistent and repeated threats against Christians in Iraq, the Shaya family decided to leave everything behind and flee Iraq.  

Smuggled into Greece, Fadi Shaya spent the next few years later selling tissues and lottery tickets on the streets of Greece.  Eventually the family makes it to the shores of America and Shaya’s family focus coupled with American opportunity turns to extraordinary achievement.

Faith and Fellowship Found at Michigan’s Chaldean Church Festivals
By Sam Yousif :: 72 Views :: Community & Culture, Chaldean Churches

Michigan, USA – Chaldeans don’t always have much time to spare.  Long hours at work, family and cultural responsibilities, and trying to make ends meet leaves many Chaldeans hungry for safe and entertaining events for the entire family. 

The Chaldean churches have had a long tradition in hosting family gatherings.  The opportunity brings respectful families together in faith and fellowship and helps raise funds to keep the church ministry strong.  

The events are always a community affair organized and managed by church volunteers and supported by community donors.  Although increasing competition of commercial festivals and state fairs targeting Chaldeans are on the rise, Chaldean church hosted events remain the number one place for Chaldean families.

Chaldean Debbie Kassa Help Uncover Hidden Liabilities
By David Najor :: 29020 Views :: Law & Order, Business & Finance

There are many things involved in establishing a new business. “One of the important steps is to protect yourself from hidden liabilities,” says tax clearance expert Debbie Kassa.   When buying or establishing a new business in Michigan, Taxpayers are required to meet certain obligations under Michigan law, including filing tax returns on time and with the correct payment when required.

Kassa is a decade long veteran of the Michigan Department of Treasury where she was in charge of reviewing Tax Returns from 1040's to the SBT & SUW returns. She also worked 7 years in the Tax Clearance Division reviewing Business accounts for Businesses & Corporations seeking a Tax Clearance.

Kassa advises every business owner on Successor Liability and how to best prepare or avoid such situations.  “When any Chaldean buys a business, even a portion of a business (including stock of goods or even the transfer of a liquor license), they may be held responsible for the previous owner's liabilities, regardless of any contractual language to the contrary.“
