URSULA MAYES
Successful Bi-Racial Model

Korean-American model and actress Ursula Mayes confirms that being biracial is a positive factor. This has allowed her to develop her appearance and personality. Her cultural pride and success stems directly from her mother. Since her German father died 21 years ago, her mother had to take care of two daughters and one son that prompted her desire to help others in similar situations.

Visual Images of Ursula Mayes on Video

She will debut in the Korean entertainment industry with other biracial actors Daniel Henney and Dennis O. Her success includes her debut in the entertainment world by making it to the final round three times in a cover model competition for men's magazine MAXIM. Later she starred in the hit television series "`Lost," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" and "`24" - she now appears in the top-rated show ``Deal or No Deal" on NBC as a "lucky girl" supporting host Howie Mandel. For more info, click HERE

Talking About Being Bi-Racial
(Pearl Buck Interview Video)

Ursula Mayes was born on August 9th on a military base in Seoul, South Korea. Her exotic looks come from a Korean mother and a German/Native-American father.

This army brat is Maxim's global spokesmodel and travels throughout Asia, Europe and Guam. Ursula is also the host for Action Media interviewing various celebrities, musicians, athletes and corporate sponsors. She has been featured in magazines such as Maxim, Muscle & Fitness, OC Health, People magazine’s “100 most beautiful people” issue and many more.

Some of her national corporate campaigns include Evan Williams, Monster Energy, Subaru, Bacardi and Airsplat amongst many others.

Aside from her many editorial features, Ursula was selected as Dreamgirl International’s spokesmodel. She is featured throughout the year on all of Dreamgirl's catalogues, clothing, packaging, posters and more sold in boutiques nationwide. Dreamgirl even named a top after her, the “Ursula corset” which is also one of Dreamgirls' top selling items.

MIRA NAIR & JHUMPA LAHIRI
Usual Trust Between Author & Director

Screen adaptations - by neccessity - are condensations of their source and adapting a book within a screenplay while often requiring a trust between all the creative parties..

Interview with Mira Nair & Jhumpa Lahiri

An usual trust was developed during the hard process of making Jhumpa Lahiri's novel "The Namesake" - the basis for Mira Nair's new movie. "The Namesake" is the story of Gogol Ganguli, a second-generation Indian American trying to make his own life even as he's bedeviled by the feeling that he's betraying the way of life his loving parents have given him. Lahiri's book is written in straightforward yet lyrical prose. Lahiri's overview enfolds her characters within the kind of sad everyday comedy that can reasonably be called Chekhovian, while still slipping into their heads so easily that we seem to be breathing along with them.

Lahiri's trust was developed when she saw how Sooni Taraporevala (screenwriter)] and Mira were able to draw out moments in the writing and convert them into scenes and dialogue." There is, Lahiri said, "a kind of interiority to the way that book came out," which did not suggest it would translate easily to the screen.

In "The Namesake," Lahiri has honored her parents' experience, and her own. The movie goes beyond the immigrant experience and is a testimony how literature slips past national boundaries. It does this by expressing every person's desire to find our own place in the world and the guilt we feel about separating ourselves from our families. Mira Nair's movie has clearly stated that fiction is the country in which Lahiri has found her home.

PLOT: Director Mira Nair genre jumps from ethnocentric films about India and Indian culture (Salaam Bombay!, Monsoon Wedding) to Hollywood blockbusters (Vanity Fair). Her latest, The Namesake, based on Jhumpa Lahiri's novel, is an intergenerational family saga about Ashoke (Irfan Khan) and Ashima (Tabu) who, immediately after their arranged marriage in Calcutta, immigrate to the United States. While living in suburbia, their son Gogol (Kal Penn) is born and grows up as an American kid, with conflicted feelings about his Indian roots.

  • PURSUING   THE   PEARL (Book Review by Russell Yee)
    Comprehensive Resource for Multi-Asian Ministry
    by Ken Uyeda Fong

    Book Reviewer   

    RUSSELL YEE is the pastor of New Life Christian Fellowship in California's Castro Valley. He is also an Adjunct Prfessor at Fuller Theological Seminary in California. He is a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary and the Graduate Theological Union (Berkeley).

    Russell is also a 4th-generation native of Oakland, where he lives with his wife, Lisa, and their two young daughters and can be reached at ryee@att.net

    What do the following all have in common? Fish, the Meiji Restoration, postmodernism, emergent multi-Asian culture, and a passion for effective Christian evangelism and discipleship. Answer: they're all part of the view Ken provides us of the needs and opportunities facing Asian American churches in the 21st century. . .

    The most notable difference between Ken's earlier and present work is the shift from his earlier Americanized Asian American (AAA) focus to his present, broader, multi-Asian/multi-ethnic focus (and more multigenerational and multisocioeconomic to boot). . . . .

    Prominent Asian American Christian pastor addresses the issues of ministering to Pan-Asian and multi-ethnic communities in methods that make traditional leaders cringe! Underlying the book is Ken's great Flow of Generations metaphor. In brief: immigration begins an inexorable flow from the "River of Dreamers" inhabited by freshwater bass (the immigrant 1st-generation), to the "Bay of Transitions" traversed by anadromous salmon (the transitioning 2nd-generation), to the "Sea of Inevitability" and its saltwater cod (the acculturated 3rd+ generations). The thing to note is that in order to thrive each generation needs conditions specially suited to it. Cod suffocate and die in freshwater streams, bass can't bear saltwater, and salmon need both . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . The problem is when churches act as "dams," trying to stop the flow and keep everyone together under the same conditions. In particular, the first generation often neither intended nor anticipated its offspring would lose their ancestral culture and become so westernized. So it experiences those offspring's search for a different worship service or different church as both cultural and personal rejection. (The irony of course is that it was the 1st-generation's decision to emigrate that started this whole inexorable flow.)

  • I came up with fifteen reasons why it is important to be a straight ally to the LGBT community. The list is as follows:
    . ...so other heterosexuals can learn how to stop any form of persecuting LGBT individuals.
    ...so we can dispel the myths and misconceptions of the LGBT community that are held by majority society
    . ...because straight allies need to support other straight individuals who are coping with their own biases and discomfort with LGBT individuals.
    .... . . Straight allies help LGBT individuals feel free to be a part of all society, as opposed to having LGBT individuals feel that only the LGBT community can accept them
    ...because LGBT individuals can comfortably and securely claim their identity.
    .. biases make it difficult for a LGBT individual to “fit in” within the LGBT community and may look to straight allies for acceptance
    ...because a LGBT person may not feel supported or accepted by his or her own LGBT community and need to rely on straight allies for safety and support. . . .
    ...so LGBT individuals can look to straight allies as role models . . .
    ...because a LGBT person may need a positive emotional experience from straight allies . . . . .
    ...because LGBT individuals in the process of “coming out” may feel the straight community is labeling their feelings as deviant, inappropriate, or transitional . . . .
    ..because straight friends or family members who know of an individual’s LGBT identity may need to keep the LGBT individual’s secret from others. . . .
    ...because straight individuals may be threatened or slandered if they express any affection for the same sex individuals. . . .
    ...because straight allies need other straight allies to “come out” so they too can be supported as being an advocate for the LGBT community.
    ...because . . . . LGBT individuals and straight allies still have to decide if it is safe to “come out” within other settings . . . .
      ...so they can change environments or settings (e.g. schools, workplaces, institutions) that are not taking a clear stance regarding LGBT individuals. . .
    ...it is simply the right thing to do
    Peter Ju
    Peter Ji states "LGBT deals with people who use the Bible as “evidence” that being gay is fundamentally wrong. How would I respond if someone proclaimed me as fundamentally flawed based on religious text? In the end, I assessed myself as uncomfortable with being too passive and I experienced an inner urgency to do more."

    Wong Chin Foo's article "Why Am I a Heathen?" describes this racist cartoon. This racist depiction refers to the 1885 Chinese Immigration Act, which levied a $50 "head tax" upon non-Christian, Chinese male immigrants.

    ANITA MUI REMEMBERED

     

     
    Hong Kong heartthrob singer and actress Anita Mui (born on October 10, 1963 as Mui Yim Fong) died of lung failure that was caused by cervical cancer on Tuesday: December 30, 2003 surrounded by friends such as Jackie Chan, Willie Chan, Alan Tam, Andy Lau, John Shum, Eddie Lau and Eric Tsang. (Her other friends include Zhao Wenzhuo and Nicholas Tse) She was 40 years old.

    Mui’s big break came in 1982 when she defeated 3,000 contestants to win first prize in the New Talent Singing Competition. Mui went on to carve out a reputation as “the Madonna of Asia” with her occasionally outrageous costumes, bold stage performances and a stream of hits which netted her numerous awards. Her 46 albums, 40 movies and shows often became trendsetters and were hot topics for the public.

    The unmarried star was known for her charity work. She set up the Anita Mui Charity Foundation in the early 1990s and during the recent SARS scare. For more info, click HERE
