One More Reason I Am Thankful

Written by Thursday, December 01, 2016
Last week, I recalled my many blessings in my weekly message. Now, I’d like to add one more. I’m thankful to live in California—a progressive blue state which, though not perfect, remains one of the freest places in America. Besides the gorgeous weather in Southern California, it is a place where independence and innovation reign. I am particularly proud that I live in a state where diversity is the norm. It makes us more tolerant and loving and open-minded toward our neighbors. This frame of mind will become more necessary to endure a Trump administration. According to the L.A. Times,…
Eight years ago, as America was teetering on the edge of financial collapse, then President-Elect Barack Obama predicted that as the economy recovered, some jobs—even entire industries—would disappear. Fast forward to 2016, and we find job growth steady and the labor force growing at close to its fastest pace since 2000. Despite changes in the job market, more people are going back to work. That’s why economists are finding it disheartening that an important part…

What’s Next for Cuba after Fidel Castro?

Written by Thursday, December 01, 2016
Now that Fidel Castro has died, some Cubans wonder if brother Raul Castro—who took over when the leader became ill—will modify the communist regime in favor of a more democratic society. Don’t count on it. Castro, who died on Nov. 25 at age 90, came into power by deposing Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista, and ruled the Republic of Cuba for 47 years as Prime Minister from 1959 to 1976 and then as President from 1976…

What I Am Thankful For

Written by Thursday, November 24, 2016
As I write this message on Thanksgiving Eve I feel the need to exhale, to come down from the intensity of the recent election and personal challenges of this year. Thanksgiving offers us all an opportunity to regroup and refocus our attention on the things in life that we hold most dear and which cannot be bought—our faith, our loved ones, good health, the ability to work and make a meaningful contribution to society. Saying what you are thankful for is a wonderful tradition that should never be underestimated. Giving a voice to your blessings is powerful and reminds you…

The trend is reversing now, with the buying public criticizing retailers that stay open on Thanksgiving Day, saying the policy is disrespectful and unfair to employees.…

Trump Cabinet is Problematic

Written by Thursday, November 17, 2016
Uproar over Donald Trump winning the election continues more than a week later. But presidential elections are about much more than who becomes commander-in-chief. Cabinet appointments play a pivotal role in the future of our country, and already the president-elect’s shortlist of appointees is raising eyebrows among Republicans and Democrats. Trump is considering Steven Bannon, a nationalist media mogul, as his chief strategist and senior counselor in the White House. Civil rights groups, Democrats and some GOP leaders have criticized Trump, noting Bannon’s anti-Semitic and racist views. He is the former head of Breitbart News, an ultra conservative website dedicated…
