Quotes

The statement continued, "Thulani and Bheki were arrested and detained on 17 March 2014 and 18 March 2014 respectively for writing articles about the circumstances surrounding the arrest of government vehicle inspector, Bhantshana Gwebu, and the lack of integrity, impartiality and independence of the Swaziland judiciary. After a trial with numerous flaws and irregularities demonstrating a bias against them, both of them were convicted of contempt of court on 17 July 2014. However, instead of the ordinary 30-day sentence, they were sentenced to two years imprisonment on 25 July 2014, underscoring the political (and jaundiced) nature of their trial and sentence."
Seattle City Council has appointed Cuc Vu as director of the Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs, or OIRA. "Cuc's compelling background as a refugee of the Vietnam War, immigrant upbringing and experience working on immigrant and refugee affairs issues makes her the ideal director to help the immigrant and refugee communities achieve success" said Councilmember Bruce Harrell, chair of the PublicPublic Safety, Civil Rights and Technology Committee
Sam Sepah graduated from NLC DC and now works at Google. “ "New Leaders Council (NLC) is not just for young political-aspired leaders, but it is also for young corporate leaders such as me. Their leadership curriculum was in-depth and valuable for many fellows, who gained their confidence and improved their understanding on how to lead the next generation of challenges. This unique program also offers a number of mentorship opportunities where we can quickly learn how to build a clear path to success in order to become a key contributor for our 21st century society."
"In a small business, you learn there's no margin in having enemies."
