Chaldeans Concerned over Red Meat Link to Cancer
By Britney Hermiz :: 51409 Views :: Health & Fitness

California, USA - Chaldeans who eat a lot of red meat and processed meats have a significantly higher risk of several types of cancer, including lung cancer and colorectal cancer, says Dr. Tarik Kajy, a Chaldean cancer specialist and surgeon.  A recent study released by U.S. researchers concur with Dr. Kajy that high red meat consummation is a health risk.  

The study is the first big study to show a link between meat and lung cancer. It also shows that people who eat a lot of meat have a higher risk of liver and esophageal cancer and that men raise their risk of pancreatic cancer by eating red meat.

A growing number of Chaldeans in America are being diagnosed with cancer.  Dr. Kajy theorizes that high red meat consumption in the Chaldean diet might be to blame.  “Chaldeans originating from the Middle East often ate a high vegetarian laden Mediterranean style diet balanced with low meat intake.  However, Chaldeans in America have reversed the portions and are now eating more meat then the traditional vegetable driven meal.”

Chaldean Business Woman Shares a Bit of Christmas Jewelry Joy
By Rita Abro :: 48006 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.

The Untold Story of Native Iraqis To Be Told
By Sabah Hajjar :: 91048 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 Federation of America Leads in Rebuilding and Rescuing Lives
By Huda Metti :: 102000 Views :: Community & Culture, Government & Society, Chaldean Federation of America

Michigan, USA - They have been forced to flee their home and country due to the Iraqi war.  Many grieve over having to abandon their children or elderly parents and will remain emotionally scarred for life.  Others are tortured and killed in violent conflict.  Those that are able to find refuge from the killing in another country are treated inhumanely.  They are still without food, water, shelter, medical or mental care, kept unemployed, uneducated, and alienated. They are what many consider locked into a living hell. 

The Iraq war has ravaged more than 20,000 families – mostly Christians –persecuted and even murdered because of their religious beliefs says Basil Bakal, Chaldean Federation of America Adopt-A-Refugee Family committee chairman.

Many feel the United States have a responsibility to address the refugee crisis caused by the Iraq war and occupation.  Current American policy denies any special American responsibility for Iraqi refugees although the entire world believes that the two million refugees are a bi-product of American actions in Iraq says Lavinia Limon.  Limon is the former Director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement in the Department of Health and Human Service under the Clinton administration and current President and CEO of the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI).

Entire families, infants, children, young adults, and elders are left homeless, hungry, and in desperation.  Paralyzed by fear and hurting for someone, somewhere to help the effort in rescuing and rebuilding their shattered lives.

Chaldean Business Leaders Choose The Right Business Legal Structure
By Bedre Konja :: 40973 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.

7 Steps to a Stress-Free Chaldean Holiday Celebration
By Sue Garmo :: 99190 Views :: Health & Fitness, Living & Lifestyle, Community & Culture

California, USA - Chaldeans are busily preparing for the holidays.  The community is getting ready for big family dinners, the traditional extended family tours, and the hectic gift giving calculations.  It arrives at the same time every year, and yet Chaldeans continue to get confused, stressed, and frustrated over the potential holiday madness. Chaldean holiday preparations can be less taxing for Chaldeans if these 7 simple steps are followed. 

Step 1 - BE PREPARED
Create a budget for your gift purchases, a list of who has been nice, and stick to it. Chaldeans have huge families and trying to buy a gift for every cousin, friend, neighbor, or employee will have you filing for bankruptcy.  Chaldeans are generous and charitable, but a line has to be drawn.  Create a gift list to fight the urge of seeing an item on clearance that you think would be perfect for someone not on your list.  Write down a few ideas for presents, based on the preferences of those on the list and hints they have given you throughout the year.

By Huda Metti :: 35183 Views :: Government & Society

California, USA - November 20th is National Family Volunteer Day. What better time to teach Chaldean children about charity and volunteering? Here are some ideas to put the whole family in the charitable spirit.

Adopt a Grandparent' and visit a local retirement home.

Chaldean children can visit with residents and put on plays or skits, bring small crafts, or simply visit and reminisce.

Chaldeans Under Attack in the North of Iraq
By Huda Metti :: 39467 Views :: Government & Society


Deshtetek, IRAQ – Chaldeans caught in the middle again after fleeing to the North of Iraq in hopes of peace.  For several months now, Turkish forces have been shelling this rugged terrain from mountain bases, including a massive one perched above Deshtetek, in an effort to root out Kurdish guerrillas.

The last three women left this tiny hamlet on Monday, carrying no more than their clothes and prayers. They joined 250 villagers who fled in the past two weeks, locking their homes and their yellow church and driving away on a desolate road scarred by war. Only 11 men remain, their lands separated from Turkey by a thin, emerald river winding through a fertile valley.

During the rule of Saddam Hussein's Baath Party, Deshtetek's community of Chaldean Christians were forced from the region, their ancestral homeland, to Mosul and Baghdad. Two years ago, Chaldeans traveled back to the remote edge of northern Iraq to escape religious persecution and sectarian violence. Now, as the shelling intended for Kurdish terrorist guerrillas from Turkey intensifies, a familiar dread has returned to their lives.

Award Winning Movie Trumps Romance With True Love
By Huda Metti :: 80865 Views :: Sports, Art, and Entertainment, Opinion and Editorials

Chaldeans say they can relate to the movie Bella (www.bellathemovie.com) that opened this week. 

The weekend box office smash sends another cold chill down the spine of Hollywood who snubbed the film for its contrary and heart wrenching message that love comes from sacrifice and not romance. 

The movie critics say Bella has what America’s been asking for but what Hollywood refuses to give.

Having won the People’s Choice Award at last year’s Toronto Film Festival, you’d think major Hollywood distribution companies would be crawling over one another for a crack at the film. But such is not the case. Bella’s central theme puts a premium on the value of human life — including life in the womb — and that is a value Hollywood just won’t tolerate.

For Arvin Ashaki and his
fiancé Amber Kannani the movie rated tops.

Chaldean Business Leaders Say Apology Weak and Not Enough
By Rita Abro :: 102826 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.
