5 Ways to Stay Safe in Sports
By Sue Garmo :: 6739 Views :: Article Rating :: Health & Fitness, Sports, Art, and Entertainment

 

Summer sports are a wonderful outlet for Chaldean kids to learn the value of teamwork, build friendships and get fresh air and exercise.  And while Chaldean parents want their kids to have a good time and succeed at sports, they should also teach them the importance of playing sports safely.


Kids' growing bodies are simply more susceptible to injury than adults'.  Chaldean health professionals estimate that one out of every thirteen Chaldean children under the age of fifteen will suffer a sports injury this summer.  Yet, a lot of them are preventable by following five rules of sports safety. If Chaldean boys and Chaldean girls want to win at sports in the long run, they must take steps to protect their bodies.

Here are five ways Chaldeans can do just that.

Why Lose Weight
By Brenda Hermiz :: 4326 Views :: Article Rating :: Health & Fitness
Do you believe it's simple to lose weight? If you listen to the weight loss industry, you've been told over and over how easy it is--just take this pill, follow that diet or buy this piece of equipment and everything will melt away in a flash. In fact, it’s even harder for Chaldeans to lose weight.  Our cultural foods and family habits have not caught up to the way we now live.
 
The idea behind weight loss is simple-burn more calories than you eat. This can be accomplished by replacing a couple of sodas with water and adding 20 minutes of walking each day.  This sounds simple because it is, but why can't we seem to do it?

9 Keys for Better Chaldean Communication
By Rita Abro :: 7844 Views :: Article Rating :: Health & Fitness, Community & Culture

Chaldeans are known for their savvy skills in business and negotiations.  Given communication is a fundamental skill in business and negotiations; you might be tempted to logically conclude Chaldeans must be great communicators. 

Let’s just say Chaldeans communicate differently than most in the West are accustomed to in business and negotiations.  Commonly Chaldeans in communications will be more outspoken, quick, transparent, bold, candid, and gesticulate freely in the discussion. 

This can be intimidating, frustrating, and difficult for non-Chaldeans who are taught a more linear, quiet, subtle, and masked way of sharing ones thoughts and feelings.  

A few weeks ago, I was asked to join two close friends for lunch, John, a Chaldean and Russell, a non-Chaldean (Names have been changed to protect the innocent). Throughout the lunch, I couldn't help but feel there was some sort of communication breakdown.  John would cut Russell off even though he was still talking. John kept offering unwanted advice and opinions, even though Russell was not asking for help. It became quite frustrating just 15 minutes into the conversation.  After 30 minutes, Russell stopped sharing and nodded away to everything John said.

After the lunch, I reflected over the situation.

13 Tips to A Better Nights Rest for Chaldeans
By Brenda Hermiz :: 7468 Views :: Article Rating :: Health & Fitness

Recently a friend of mine joined me at my cousins wedding. Besides the number of guests, decorations, and non-stop dancing do you know what surprised my friend?  That we ate dinner at 10 pm in the evening

It goes without saying that Chaldeans on average get anywhere from 5-7 hours of sleep a night.  Long hours in the family business and events that span into the wee hours leave little time for bed time.  Some are impressed that Chaldeans can function at such an intense level with so little rest. It may be impressive, but that doesn’t make it good for us.

A June 2010 Newsweek article entitled “The Surprising Toll of Sleep Deprivation”, discusses a research study that only allowed participants 6 hours of sleep per night for a two week period. The study found that even though the subjects felt some sleepiness and “they thought they were functioning normally, formal testing showed that their cognitive abilities and reaction times progressively declined over the two weeks. By the end of the two week test, they were as impaired as subjects who had been continuously awake for 48 hours”.

When you look at these results, it’s very clear that many Chaldeans would be performing even better if they had more sleep.

Florida, USA - If you ask the Clearwater BP gas station owner Karim Mansour, he will say they had a bone to pick with Cody and they won.  Florida’s health department inspector says the dog will no longer be able to join his owner to work. 

“Successful Chaldean business owners are known to fight for their employees.  It is perhaps one of the biggest reasons as to why they are successful.  You treat your workers great, they are loyal and work hard to make the business a success,” says Angela Yousif, a member of Clearwater areas Chamber of Commerce. 

Mansour, received a warning from the Florida Department of Health on Thursday, informing him that Cody would have to go or all of the store's food - mostly bottled soda, candy and other snacks - would be declared unfit for consumption.

How To Say “I Do” Every Day - 11 Ways to Perk up a Chaldean Marriage
By Huda Metti :: 16403 Views :: Article Rating :: Health & Fitness, Living & Lifestyle


Michigan, USA – “If you’ve ever gone a month without spending any real quality time with your spouse, you know how negatively it can affect your marriage. All relationships need to be nurtured, and none more so than our relationship with our spouse,” says Eddie Kuza from Farmington Hills, Michigan. 

Kuza attended the new Couples Club at Mother of God Chaldean Catholic church with his wife.  The Couples Club organizes fun outings and events for engaged and married Chaldean couples.  “The Club is fun.  The group organizes some great activities, like dinner and a play, or a small trip up North, or great tickets to a basketball game.” 

Kuza says the goal of the Couples Club is to nurture strong marital relationships and create opportunities for Chaldeans to have fun.  Successful Chaldean marriages may be best seen as a triangle, with God at the top and each partner at the lower corners. The closer we draw to God, the closer we’ll be to each other.  “Marriage is not a ‘done deal’ at the altar; it’s a continuous, daily ‘I do.’ Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads, which sew people together through the years.”

The Chaldean Couples Club event brochure offered these wonderful tips to perk up a relationship.

Chaldeans Being Offered $100,000 for Rare Blood Vaccine
By Sue Garmo :: 30611 Views :: Article Rating :: Health & Fitness, World News & Odds 'N' Ends

California, USA – Chaldean immigrant receives special attention from the U.S. Center for Disease control (CDC) for his blood.  “It is like the movie Arachnophobia where a spider is brought to the U.S., spreads, and creates havoc,” says Dr. Jason Edwin III, Director of Entomology at the CDC.  “We were able to find an Iraqi who has something in his blood that is immune to the spider’s venom and is assisting in treating the infectious bite site of the spider.”

David Abbas of Tel’Kepe, Iraq seems to be immune to the venom of the infamous “Camel Spider” which is identified as the cause of a state-wide outbreak in Nevada.  Abbas was given $100,000 after a sample of his blood proved to contain the necessary antibodies.  The CDC is now asking Chaldeans in California, Nevada, Arizona, and Michigan to be tested.  Those with the rare blood immunity will be offered a $100,000 in order for the CDC to have enough vaccine to stop the epidemic from spreading outside of Nevada.

“I was scared and worried,” says Ashley Michael.  “My baby would not stop crying.  It was late at night and I was so tired.  He was getting on my nerves.  Thank God we lived with my Mother-in-Law.  She helped keep me calm and made me feel that everything would be fine.  She was so kind and helpful.”

All babies cry. And at about two weeks of age, it is common for babies to develop a fussy period in the evening that can last for as long as two hours.  Fortunately for Mrs. Michael it is a Chaldean tradition for a new mom to stay with her mother or mother-in-law after giving birth for a few months.   

The reassurance, extra set of hands, and experienced advice can make all the difference.  So can a number of these helpful tips given to www.CHALDEAN.org by experienced Chaldean moms on how to soothe a fussy baby.  Try some of the following techniques, or perhaps a combination of them, to soothe your baby.

Obama Full Speed Ahead on Terminating Babies with Tax Dollars
By Huda Metti :: 16091 Views :: Article Rating :: Health & Fitness, Government & Society

California, USA – “Chaldeans who voted for him should be ashamed of themselves.  When will people learn that what goes around comes around?  Like the Nazis who supported eugenics and the killing of the useless and unwanted, so too goes America with this President,” says Ashley Bashi. 

Barack Obamaa has plans to reward the allies that helped him topple Hillary Clinton and seize the presidency by making total unrestricted abortion in the United States his number one priority as president.  Nonetheless, some Chaldeans think abortion is a religious issue or only a disagreement to overlook with the controlling Democrat party. 

 “It is sad that some in the Chaldean community think abortion is a religious issue.  Our entire society is based on morals and values.  If we don’t value the innocent, the old, unproductive, weak, or poor of our society, how much longer before we begin to make decisions to eliminate them,” says Dr. Hiba Hannou, a leading Chaldean medical researcher in reproductive science.  “How much longer before we say those that are not smart or unproductive must also be killed.”

Chaldean Parents Were Right; Teen Smoking Proves Harmful and Ugly
By Brenda Hermiz :: 12372 Views :: Article Rating :: Health & Fitness

California, USA – The double standard in the Chaldean community always was a point of contention.  Why is it okay for men to smoke, but not women?  Some argue the double standard was required by Chaldean men living in a Muslim dominated society where smoking was seen as a male’s passage to adulthood and encouraged.  

The society pressures seem to be a strong force as American society continues to grow in disgust with smokers.   Chaldean men living in western society show a significant decrease in smoking compared to their Middle Eastern counterparts.  However, the increase in Chaldean women smokers versus their counterparts is staggering, but understandable, given the freedoms and consumer coaching aimed at women who have come a long way to light-up.

Stories abound in the Chaldean community of fathers and mothers disgusted at the sight of young American teenage girls smoking at school.  Some of the stories go so fat as to say that the parents refused to allow their daughters to enroll in the school, opting instead to home school. 

So whatever happened to those teen girls who defiantly puffed away as gawking Chaldean parents drove by worried as to what their child was being exposed to.  A new study says those insecure girls have grown up to be fat and are now costing society in hefty healthcare costs.

Chaldean Healthcare Provider Sees Shift in Culture Costing A Great Deal
By Britney Hermiz :: 17115 Views :: Article Rating :: Health & Fitness, Government & Society

Florida, USA – “The family is the nucleus of society.  When it is weakened or destroyed, we all pay,” says Jenny Jabril, a Chaldean nurse in Florida’s Orange County.  “We all pay when families break-down or fail.  We the people, deal with the dysfunction.  Our taxes go up to care for the abandoned or misguided children, our education system spins out of control, we pay more to prevent crimes, protect our families, or hospitalize these people.” 

Jabril is frustrated over the increased number of substance abuse.  In Florida law, citizens can be held against their will under the Marchman Act. Individuals whose substance abuse makes them a threat to themselves or others can be held at a mental-health facility for up to five days while physicians evaluate them.

Jerry Kassab, president and chief executive officer of Lakeside Alternatives, Orange County's receiving center, said his facility receives about 20 patients a day who are committed under the law.   There are three scenarios in which someone can be committed under the Marchman Act.

In Orange County, Kassab said, most patients are taken to Lakeside by law enforcement officers.  "The most common instance is when someone's out on the street who's acting up, or the police might be called by a store owner because someone's acting up or acting weird," Kassab said. "You also get instances when one family member calls the police because someone in their family is out of control."

You are My Sunshine, My only Sunshine'….Like any good mother, when Karen found out that another baby was on the way, she did what she could to help her 3-year-old son, Michael, prepare for a new sibling.

They found out that the new baby was going be a girl, and day after day, night after night, Michael sang to his sister in mommy's tummy.   He was building a bond of love with his little sister before he even met her.

The pregnancy progressed normally for Karen.  In time, the labor pains came. Soon it was every five minutes, every three, every minute. But serious complications arose during delivery and Karen found herself in hours of labor.

Would a C-section be required? Would the mother survive?  Would the baby live?  The entire family and medical staff were on pins and needles.  Finally, after a long and exhausting struggle, Michael's little sister was born. But she was in very serious condition.

10 Rules for Growing Healthier Children
By Brenda Hermiz :: 26838 Views :: Article Rating :: Health & Fitness

Children in America face a huge problem!  Obesity is a serious health concern in America and is affecting Chaldean families more and more.  Chaldeans forgetting the roots of their culture on matters of wholesome and nutritious living are at risk of adopting the American food habits of eating processed sugary food.  Parents making poor choices combined with commercials peddling their sugary treats for breakfast, lunch, and dinner has created a health crisis in America.  Unfortunately, Many Chaldeans are caught in the net as well. 

Over 20 percent of American children are overweight -- almost five times the rate of 30 years ago. Twenty-five percent of all children who are overweight will grow up to be overweight as adults. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently issued this dire, but true, warning: Obesity is an epidemic, and if the current trend continues, one-third of all children born in 2010 will become diabetic later in life.

Healthcare costs are skyrocketing and a major factor to the rising cost is obesity.  The quality of life for the obese is also miserable.  Children as well as adults experience severe health and emotional problems like depression and anger. 

To protect your family from the threat of obesity, Chaldeans as well as Americans, will have to make smarter choices, become more responsible for their eating habits, and accept the fact that they must rely on themselves for the care of their health as well as their family.  Parents must do a better job in teaching their kids the right eating habits. 

Here are 10 rules to help families become healthier.

Chaldean Authors Discuss The Root of Rivalry Among Women
By Huda Metti :: 32477 Views :: Article Rating :: Health & Fitness, Living & Lifestyle, Religion & Spirituality

"Sometimes healthy competition for what we want turns into a problematic desire to have something merely because a rival already has it. This is not just based on what we want, but also on what we don’t want our perceived rival to have,” writes author, Susan, Barash in her book “Tripping the Prom Queen: The truth about Women and Rivalry.” 

Seventy percent of the five hundred women interviewed said they were familiar with the concept Barash writes about.  Barash is a professor of gender studies at Marymount Manhattan College in New York and became fascinated by women's relationship. Can sisters, mothers and best friends be jealous and supportive at the same time? In fact she found that rivalry and envy often pervades female relationships.

The women were interviewed on female competition.  The study revealed that many women are competitively mean.   In her book, Barash outlines why women compete with each other differently than men do with other men and why women often want to sabotage powerful female rivals.

Nordstrom of Partridge Creek Contracts with Chaldean Entrepreneur to Extend Skin Care Products Line

Michigan,USA - The youth and beauty of a Chaldean is all too obvious.  The unique diet, good genes, olive toned skin, frequent cleanings, and skin care management secrets all contribute to the youthful beauty.  This unique trait is something the Nordstrom retailer took notice, and hopes to leverage, at the opening of their new store in the Mall at Partridge Creek. 

The store has contracted with Joanne Recchia-Kallabat’s company SkinOnyx, the U.S. distributor for Italy’s Kleraderm skin care products to make the product available in the cosmetics section of the new Nordstrom. 

"It feels like I brought Nordstrom with me," she said of her return.  The only other U.S. store that carries Kleraderm is the Nordstrom in Troy's Somerset Collection, where they've earned a strong following over the past three years.  "Nordstrom calls them 'Kleranets' because they only want Kleraderm products," Recchia-Kallabat said.  Kleraderm is an advanced skin care line developed by a doctor in Bologna, Italy.  "It really works," Recchia-Kallabat said. "It's been a beauty secret of the stars for years."

Four Steps for Losing Weight Permanently
By Brenda Hermiz :: 25 Views :: Article Rating :: Health & Fitness, Living & Lifestyle

Chaldean lifestyle and eating habits have changed.  Living in the American culture and adopting American eating habits have led to an increase risk of obesity and chronic illness in the Chaldean community.  Chaldeans have lived through many health crises in the past but the latest threat, though largely preventable, has silently grown to potentially deadly proportions. Chaldeans as well as Americans are in the grips of an “obesity epidemic,” whereby 65 percent of the American population is overweight and a growing number of Chaldean toddlers and children are obese. 

Even those who may not consider themselves overweight may be carrying a large amount of deadly belly fat, known to increase the risk of heart disease in relatively slim people.   Most Chaldeans have a basic sense that being overweight is bad for their health, but few appreciate just how dangerous it is.

Controlling fat excess is really fairly simple: Eat for health, not for pleasure. This is not to say that a healthy diet has to taste bad. But it is critical to keep in mind that the goal is a diet that provides health. The loss of excess fat will always come when you follow a healthy diet.

Below are four steps for losing weight permanently.

Want your kids to eat their veggies? Start offering them when they're tiny babies, and don't take a grimace to mean "No."  Think Chaldean babies receive enough vegetables in their diet?  Think again. 

Mennella, an expert on food choices at the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia recently had 45 mothers spoon-feed their babies puréed green beans once daily. Half the group also offered puréed peaches afterward. At first, the babies who got peaches ate more peaches than beans; after eight days, both groups were eating green beans and had increased their consumption twofold. "They'll wrinkle their noses," Mennella says, "but they still continue to eat."

The babies who were breast-fed also ate more peaches than formula-fed babies, perhaps because their mothers ate more fruit than non-breastfeeding moms. This echoes Mennella's earlier research, in which babies born to women who drank carrot juice in the third trimester favored cereal made with carrot juice, as did babies whose mothers drank carrot juice while breast-feeding. "It's really a fundamental feature of all mammals," Mennella says. "It's the first way we learn about foods and flavors."

You have heard Chaldean grandmothers telling their daughters to eat some baklava to sweeten breast milk.  Mannella’s research seems to prove the wise words.

Ear Infection Warning Signs and Solutions
By Ghazawan Kashat :: 35002 Views :: Article Rating :: Health & Fitness

It is of no surprise that all are susceptible to colds.   While some Chaldeans are accustomed to constant change of weather, there are plenty who are vulnerable.

Think of waking up to the traditional tea and toast one morning, and before you know it, you realize your nose is stuffy, your throat is scratchy and a sneeze is slowly sneaking up on you.  You try to reach for a tissue to catch it in time, and all the while feel the aches in your body, and the light-headed feeling that comes right before the big “Ah-Chu!” And it’s here: that nasty cold that’s been going around; the one your friend(s)/family has complained about all week.

Those that should really be watched over carefully are the younger Chaldean children. They are still building their immune system and other infections could easily develop alongside the cold, like ear infections.

10 Chaldean to-do's after the "I do"
By Latifa Seeba :: 21209 Views :: Article Rating :: Health & Fitness, Community & Culture

Ghasoon Majed and Dawood Summa, met at a Communion celebration party.  “We were both friends of the family.  The parents of the boy that received Communion had a barbeque and invited friends and family to their home.  I was a friend of the boy’s older brothers and Ghasoon was a friend of boy’s aunt,” Dawood fondly remembers. “I was around 24 and she was 20.  I kept bringing her tea so we could talk.  We must have finished two pots by ourselves.  The worst part was that we both had to use the bathroom after drinking so much tea.  The best part was that neither of us wanted to go because we enjoyed talking to one another so much.”

After several hours of conversation—and several pots of tea—Ghasoon and Dawood knew they wanted to be together. Some 20 years have passed, living in four different countries since that tea-filled talk, but when Ghasoon phones her husband to say she's on her way home, Dawood ready reply is, "I'll put the teapot on." For Ghasoon, that simple phrase, loaded with memories and meaning, tells her she is still loved by the man she fell in love with.

In America and Europe more than 40 percent of first-time marriages fail.  Chaldean couples continue to need both an understanding about what it takes to make their marriages last in Western society.  Latifa Seeba examines the latest research and studies on Marriage and shares some of the “Do’s” that Chaldean couples can use to make the journey together easier and more rewarding.

Chaldeans Bring Attention to March of Life 2008
By Huda Metti :: 34221 Views :: Article Rating :: Health & Fitness, Religion & Spirituality, Government & Society, Chaldean Justice League, ECRC



Rena Oram considers herself a modern day abolitionist.  “The stain on world history to enslave other humans is deplorable.  It took abolitionist to convince the world that every human life has value. Today, we are called ‘aborlitionists.’   We are modern day abolitionists that work to convince the world that babies in the womb also have the right of life and freedom.”

Oram helped organize a student group that traveled to Washing D.C. for the annual March for Life.  The Chaldean activist was joined by hundreds of thousands of other young adults from across the country. 

The Annual March for Life draws attention to the millions killed due to the Supreme Court’s 1973 decision to legalize abortion in the case of Roe v. Wade.  Although nearly half a million gathered to protest the effects of the Court’s decision on the rights of the unborn, the march receive little coverage in mainstream media. 

“The media won’t cover our march because they foolishly believe this is a privacy or woman’s choice issue.  It is not.  A baby is a natural consequence to a choice that has already been made.  It drives me crazy that people just won’t accept personal responsibility for their behavior,” says Oram. 

Michigan has been a hot-bed in the ongoing struggle to end infanticide.  Recently Students for Life of America secretly captured a speech by abortion provider Dr. Alberto Hodari on Wayne State University’s campus where the doctor claims doctors of have a license to lie to a patient to perform the necessary procedures.

Chaldeans Concerned over Red Meat Link to Cancer
By Britney Hermiz :: 14814 Views :: Article Rating :: 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.”

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.

Chaldean Scholar Publishes Study on Rape, Women and International Law
By Rita Abro :: 22200 Views :: Article Rating :: 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.

Beware of Burns This Summer Says Dr. Samir Nammy
By Amer Hedow :: 6 Views :: Article Rating :: Health & Fitness

Michigan, USA – Chaldeans need to beware the hot summer.  With the excitement of heading to the beach, chaldean family barbeques with plenty of food and running children, or the excitement of July fireworks, Chaldeans need to be aware.   Chaldeans in Michigan need to be especially vigilant as the hibernation of a cold winter and wet spring can lead to careless behavior over the excitement of a hot summer. 

In the emergency room at the University of Michigan Hospital doctors and nurses know what that means: any minute now, another burned patient will come through the door needing immediate treatment.

Maybe it’ll be a Chaldean woman who burned her bare feet walking over the buried coals of a beach bonfire, or a Chaldean child who got too much sun and developed skin blisters.  Maybe it’ll be a Chaldean teenager who came too close to the hot exhaust of a lawnmower, or a Chaldean father who didn’t heed the warning on a package of fireworks.   Or maybe it’ll be a Chaldean toddler who strayed too close to a fire pit, or a backyard chef who got impatient with a charcoal fire and tried to jump-start it with a squirt of lighter fluid.

Whatever kind of burn comes through that emergency room door, says emergency physician Samir Namy, M.D., it almost surely didn’t need to happen.

Father’s Role Very Important Says Chaldean Pediatrician, Author, and Researcher

California, USA - The American Chaldean Father spends over 15 hours a day at work.  That leaves little time for the family.  “I have to work this hard.  How am I going to feed my family, pay the bills, or be able to afford the stuff my children want or need,” says Waseem Bokus, a grocery store owner in the heart of San Diego.   “I know I should spend more time with my children but what can I do?”

Chaldean fathers unable to find employment in corporations have few alternatives.  Either they create their own business or join day laborers in Southern California.  The difficult situation takes it toll on the Chaldean family and the impact may be more severe then most Chaldean families can tolerate.

Chaldean Greg Acho Lends a Nurturing Hand
By Evon Elias :: 29698 Views :: Article Rating :: 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.”

Breastfeeding Versus Formula Feeding
By Amer Hedow :: 17443 Views :: Article Rating :: Health & Fitness

Tired of hearing Chaldean grandparents fuss over the health differences among American Chaldean and Iraqi Chaldean babies?  Do you find it odd that babies from war torn Iraq tend to be healthier than their Chaldean American counterparts?  In a country with so much freedom and prosperity it wouldn’t seem to make sense.  However, the facts are in and much of the health differences can be attributed to mothers who breastfeed versus moms that don’t.

Chaldean mothers in second and third world countries are have little choice in regards to choosing to nurse their infant or provide commercial formulas.  That may have been a blessing in disguise for Chaldean mothers.  More data continues to prove that breastfeeding is by far the best choice for a baby.  All the while, formula manufactures continue to come under scrutiny over their chemical products and the lack of comparative health benefits.

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.

Infant Formula Poses High Risk Health Dangers
By Rita Abro :: 13 Views :: Article Rating :: Health & Fitness, Living & Lifestyle

Chaldean mothers ought to strongly consider the high risk of obesity, diabetes, and weaker immune systems for babies that are not breast fed.  In light of the ongoing research that shows synthetic chemical baby formula is riskier than breastfeeding the world trade health organization is challenging multinational companies to stop considering profit over health. 

The marketing efforts to get second and third world countries hooked on baby formula products have quadrupled.  However, some countries are not buying into the scam and putting pressure on the corporations. 

“Convenience, modernization, playing on ignorance and fear is the way they do it,” says Dr. Hannaa Bedawid, a Chaldean pediatrician.   “The companies are using marketing and trying to make it seem as if it is shameful to breastfeed your child.  I applaud countries like China, Malaysia, Israel, and the World Health Organization to standing up against corporate greed.”

Companies are being charged with illegal marketing, racketeering, vastly insufficient quantities of the essential vitamins, and suppressing studies and reports revealing the dangers of baby formula.  One of the larger corporations, Abbott Laboratories, has recalled hundreds of thousands of fake liquid ready-to-feed infant formula.

A Chaldean Father’s Age May Contribute to Autism
By Rita Abro :: 16 Views :: Article Rating :: Health & Fitness

New York, USA - Older Chaldean mothers often worry that their age will affect their pregnancy, and the birth of their baby. It doesn't help to see the medical term 'elderly primagravida' on your notes, (meaning older, first time mother) and some Chaldean women feel that extra tests and interventions are used because of their age.

Chaldean trends of marrying and having babies between the ages of 18 – 25 are being lost to the cultural assimilation of Western society. 

 Chaldean couples continue to flirt with the concept of having children at later ages.  While many often thought the danger solely rested with the woman, no research says men having children later in life is equally dangerous.  Men who wait increase the chances for offspring with autism.
