Using humor to make the connection

first_img Young alumni: Exposure to differences spurred growth Andrea Bang, who plays Lee’s daughter, Janet, and “Fresh Off the Boat” star Hudson Yang also took part in the discussion, which drew a packed crowd of 200, with another 400 on the waiting list.Lee said the show relies heavily on humor to make connections with its audience, whether Asian, black, white, or, like the writer of this piece, blind and hearing-impaired.“The use of humor is integral for our show because [with it] we’re able to gently introduce really big topics,” he said. “When you use humor as an entry point, it’s an icebreaker … and you are able to sort of ask and raise a lot of questions in a very nonthreatening way. It’s amazing in that sense because humor, when used effectively, means you can cover a lot of ground.“Everybody loves to laugh … but if you learn while you are laughing at the same time it’s a wonderful thing.”Asked to describe himself physically, Lee said, “I am round; I am smooth on the top, I have no hair; I’m warm, not just in body heat but personality; and I give great hugs and I love getting hugs. I am like a big stuffed teddy bear — with no hair!”And so laughter ended the discussion.Reimagine “Asian” was sponsored by OSA, Pan-Asian Coalition for Education @ HGSE, The Harvard Asia Center, and the Harvard Pan-Asian Graduate Student Alliance, which was founded by Woojin Kim. Nina Livingstone is a Boston-based writer. She can be contacted at nina@ninalivingstone.com. Related Harvard College roommates from varied backgrounds say their differences draw them together, broaden their education When Paul Sun-Hyung Lee was growing up in Toronto in the 1970s and ’80s, there were no TV shows featuring Korean immigrants, or many Asians at all besides Pat Morita. There was “M*A*S*H,” but the most visible Asian in that cast was Hawaiian, and Margaret Cho’s “All-American Girl” wouldn’t launch until 1994.That slowly began to change in the ’90s, but the real wave of shows starring Asians began in the 2010s, and Lee is proud to be a part of it.“I wanted so hard to fit in, to assimilate, that I actively pushed away my heritage because it was never seen. When you don’t see yourself reflected on the screens, you are very subtly taught that your stories don’t matter or that you are an outsider,” said Lee, who stars as Appa, the patriarch in the hit sitcom “Kim’s Convenience.”“For Asian kids, to see themselves and their families reflected on the screen is a big deal. It normalizes the families and it shows that they are not alone, that these are common stories,” he added.“Kim’s Convenience,” adapted from Ins Choi’s 2011 play, was picked up by Netflix in 2018, two years after its first season aired on CBC. The show is paired with ABC’s “Fresh Off the Boat,” and stars from both casts were at Harvard on Monday to take part in a panel discussion called Reimagine “Asian” at the Graduate School of Education’s Askwith Hall.The panel was conceived and convened by Woojin Kim, an Ed.M. candidate at HGSE. “I love these shows,” he said. “I love ‘Kim’s Convenience’ because it’s one of the most relatable, authentic media experiences that I’ve ever had a connection with.”After years of misrepresentation, stereotype, or just omission, “We’re now seeing the emergence of directors and creators who are intentional and thoughtful about the casting choices they’re making,” Kim said. “They are covering a very wide gamut. These creatives can express their full and true stories, crafting more authentic, diverse narratives.,“These actors are people who will help push this conversation forward,” he said. “They have an incredible platform, because people are watching them, whether they are Asian-identifying or not. People are watching them and learning from them.”Simu Liu, who plays Lee’s son, Jung, in “Kim’s Convenience,” said seeing the play “was the first time I ever saw [my own culture] depicted onstage … and I remember leaving the theater in tears because it was truly a look into my parents’ life.” Liu’s parents had grown up during the Cultural Revolution in China, creating “a very turbulent relationship” between parents and son.“[The play] made me feel a lot closer to my parents, it made me understand their perspective a lot more so it did actually bring us much closer together,” Liu said.Andrew Phung, who plays family friend Kimchee, said “Kim’s Convenience” doesn’t necessarily have to have a message. “The great part about our show is it’s about the realities of this family. It’s groundbreaking that this family is on television and gets to tell their particular story. The message is the same as other shows: family, hard work, the struggle to have a better life.”Lee agreed, “A lot of non-Korean people tune into the show and say, ‘I didn’t know much about Korean culture, but watching your show is a really great introduction to it.’“When you are normalized and you see more of yourself reflected in these different diverse characters, you are more willing to empathize with them or be with them because you have this common ground,” he said. Learning through others broadened their sense of how the wider world works, recent grads say When a House is a bountiful homelast_img read more

Salvadoran Assembly Increases Military Service to 18 Months

first_img The Salvadoran Legislative Assembly has approved an increase in the period of military service to eighteen months, according to an official announcement. Prior to the legislative decree of extension, military service lasted twelve months. According to the information published in the Salvadoran newspaper El Diario de Hoy, the revision to Article 5 of the Military Service and Armed Forces Reserve Act also includes authorization for President Mauricio Funes to extend that service to twenty-four months, with the obligation to explain his reasons for doing so to the Congress. “Military service will be performed for a period of eighteen months. Nevertheless, for reasons of an administrative nature, with regard to a class of those called to the service of the President of the Republic, he may provide for the extension of that period up to a maximum of twenty-four months. In this case, he must inform the Legislative Assembly of the reasons justifying this measure within fifteen days,” according to the revision approved by the Salvadoran congressional deputies at their last plenary session in March. Although the opposition party Nationalist Republican Alliance (ARENA) was hesitant to approve the extension at first, ARENA deputy César Reyes Dheming said that the Assembly’s defense commission did enough work to ensure that the legislative text would be as clear as possible. “It’s necessary to be able to extend the term of service in the Armed Forces so that they have room to complete their training and specialization,” the ARENA legislator said. Concretely, the reform extending the period of military service was put forward approximately a month ago by the FMLN, which was an opponent of the Armed Forces prior to the January 1992 peace agreements. Even though the decree justifies the extension as not solely in order to have troops available for a greater length of time for security tasks, the Army has carried out that function, by presidential order, since 6 November 2009, due to the high crime rates that have affected El Salvador for a number of months. In May 2010, Funes extended for a year the Army’s presence in the streets to combat crime, added three thousand soldiers to military forces in twenty-nine areas, and expanded the troops’ activities to “blind spots” or unmonitored border locations, in addition to sending military personnel to some of the country’s prisons. The Salvadoran Armed Forces have over fifteen thousand members, including officers and enlisted personnel. Responsibility for public safety was withdrawn from the military by the peace agreements, but under exceptional circumstances, the president may require them to provide support for this purpose to the National Civil Police (PNC), an institution that is independent from the Army and was created, together with other bodies, following the end of twelve years of hostilities, from 1980 to 1992. For his part, Minister of National Defense Gen. David Munguía Payés said several weeks ago that with the possible extension of military service, the possibility of teaching soldiers some trades could also be evaluated, so that upon leaving the military, they would also be prepared to earn a living and contribute to the economy of their municipalities and of the country.

California muffler rule revised for 2014 season

first_imgVINTON, Iowa – The Flowmaster Delta Force 40 Series race muffler part number 53545-10 will be highly recommended but not required for use in IMCA sanctioned events in California this season.“Historically, we want to give drivers time to comply with rule changes of significance,” explained IMCA Vice President of Operations Brett Root. “This is one such change. We will continue moving toward compliance with local and state ordinances in the event the muffler must be mandated.”“We encourage our drivers in California to use this muffler not only for noise ordinance compliance but for consistency,” he added. “It will ease the minds of racers, promoters, tech officials and local authorities because noise issues have the potential to jeopardize track operations or racing, period.”IMCA will continue to monitor noise issues in the state throughout the season.“We recommend drivers purchase the Flowmaster muffler but if there is any other substantiated way drivers can meet local guidelines we will recommend that as well,” Root said. “Unfortunately there is no independent source for such certification while the potential fines and legal implications for tracks are considerable. It’s important for drivers to understand that.”The initial announcement on Flowmaster muffler use in California was made in December.last_img read more

Wilson works lapped traffic, survives brush with backstretch wall to win Smackdown at Lone Star

first_imgBy Darin ShortKILGORE, Texas (Feb. 15) – Running in lapped traffic much of the way kept Saturday’s Sprint Smackdown at Lone Star Speedway a challenge for Chad Wilson.That contact with the backstretch wall at midway made the season-opening event for IMCA EMI RaceSaver Sprint Cars even more interesting for the defending national champion.Wilson started from the 25-lapper from the pole, lost the lead briefly to Marcus Thomas and then rallied to take the $1,200 checkers, winning the Smackdown for the second straight year.“Getting this win was a really good way for us to start the season,” he said. “We got into lapped traffic really quick early in the race but it was easy to pass the first 12 laps. After the caution it wasn’t as easy. The track started to take rubber and it was a lot harder to get through lapped traf­fic.”The only caution of the contest came on the 15th circuit. Wilson had already worked his way back to the front at that point, despite a nasty brush with the wall coming out of turn two.“I’d slid up, got into the wall and damaged my right rear wheel shortly before Marcus passed me,” he said. “I thought the tire would go flat with how hard I hit the stupid thing.”His margin of victory over Thomas was two car lengths.Junior Jenkins braved the higher line in his flawless run to third while 18th starting Tim Crawley was fourth.Josh Hawkins rounded out the top five. Logan Scherb had raced all the way to second before a late spin, then wheeled his way all the way back to sixth.Feature results – 1. Chad Wilson; 2. Marcus Thomas; 3. Junior Jenkins; 4. Tim Crawley; 5. Josh Hawkins; 6. Logan Scherb; 7. Bryan Debrick; 8. Dale Weston; 9. Weldon Buford; 10. Tucker Doughty; 11. Dustin Woods; 12. Robert Vetter; 13. Larry Howrey; 14. Martin Edwards; 15.
