Fil-Ams urged to invest in PH franchise industry
To entice Filipino-Americans to invest in the Philippines, the Philippine Franchise
Association (PFA) met with community leaders in Las Vegas recently.

For its part, the Philippine government helped promote the country by expounding
on the current business climate there.

“I hope with this presentation I was able to encourage you to invest in the Philippines,”
PFA vice chairman Maria Alegria Limjoco told a Filipino-American audience in Las
Vegas last Feb. 15.

President Barack Obama and Cabinet Secretary Chris Lu

Senior White House officials discuss Obama’s budget
President Barack Obama released last week his $3.7 trillion budget proposal for
fiscal year 2012, which aims to reduce the national deficit and put the country
on a path towards fiscal responsibility and sustainability.

“We will continue our efforts to rebuild the economy and we will do our best to
out-innovate, out-building and out-educate the rest of the world,” said Assistant
to the President and Cabinet Secretary Chris Lu, who added that in order to do
that, focus must be given on areas critical to winning the future: education,
innovation, clean energy and infrastructure.

Tony Ruivivar

Be Hep B-free, LV!
Tony Ruivivar stood in front of more than a hundred Asian-Americans, with seeming
unease. The sight was unusual for the veteran showman who performed in front of
much larger audiences in the last four decades.

As he clutched the microphone, he admitted, “It feels so different to be in front
of a lot of people and not sing.”

The former Las Vegas headliner and Society of Seven (SOS) founder was back in the
city last Feb 17, but on a different stage and with a different goal. He was there
to tell how a hepatitis B infection 25 years ago resulted in a devastating bout
with cancer four months ago.

Station Casinos urged to support new bill on discrimination
Close to 1,000 Las Vegas residents gathered outside Palace Station last Feb. 17
to show their support for a proposed bill against discrimination.

The crowd, which included members of the Culinary Union, was protesting allegations
that employees of Station Casinos Inc are being prevented from organizing.

A climb to the top

Last Saturday night, February 19, Filipinos who gathered to support the “Filipino
Flash” Nonito Donaire, at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, left
the building with proud smiles on their faces as they recall how their kababayan,
Donaire, sent the Mexican fighter, Fernando Montiel, crumpling on the canvas via
a powerful knockout.

Raised in General Santos City, South Cotobato, and migrated to the United States,
Filipino-American Donaire proved once more that he too, can be enlisted among the
roster of the renowned pound-for-pound fighters of the world and wave the Filipino
flag mighty and high for all the world to see adding the WBC and WBO bantamweight
titles under his name.
