Malaysian Airlines MH370

Here is the link re yesterday's interview:


National and World News
Malaysian flight missing, may have turned back before disappearing

Officially the plane is still listed as missing but few are optimistic and most, including those of the Malaysian community here in Chicago, are already passing along their condolences.
In Beijing where Malaysia airlines flight MH370 was supposed to land, families and loved ones of the 239 on board wait for word on what happened after air traffic control lost contact with flight shortly after it took off from Kula Lumpur.
Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein Malaysian acting Minister of Transportation, “We are trying to do everything in our powers to find where the plane is.”
A Vietnamese pilot spotted some oil slicks while flying over a search area in the South China Sea but so far no traces of the Boeing 777.
Jim Tilman aviation expert, “It sounds like a really bad situation.  I’ve been trying to come up with every scenario that it could just to explain this way but I haven’t been very successful.”
Catastrophic failure is the leading explanation for a plane with an excellent safety record.  The passengers on board hailed from at least a dozen different countries, though more than half were Chinese nationals.
Three were Americans ob board, an adult with ties to Texas who had been working in Asia for IBM and two young children ages 2 and 4.
Kim Tee of the Malaysian Club of Chicago says, “Kind of praying and waiting.”
Doctor Kim Tee, the founder and president of the Malaysian Club of Chicago says he’s been watching the coverage of the disappearance since last night.  Doctor Tee says there are about 300 to 500 Malaysian families in Chicago.
I’ve been trying to contact them all to find out if any family members find out if they are any passengers or not.
So far everyone he’s contacted has been accounted for, but he knows his country is hurting.
“Very difficult, my heart goes out the passengers and family and crew members.”
As the search continues, US authorities have been investigating what if any connection the two people who used stolen passports may have had in the disappearance.
Of the two passports one was reported stolen from an Italian the other from an Austrian who had their passport stolen more than two years ago.  Also tonight we are learning that 20 on board were working with a Texas based semiconductor company.

迎接馬年的大芝加哥亞裔聯盟農曆新年晚會,22日在歐海爾機場凱悅飯店舉行,華人社區除了華埠更好團結聯盟主席陳增華獲頒「泛亞美譚繼平紀念獎」(Pan Asian American Ping Tom Memorial Award)外,另有蕭艾萍(AnneI-Pin Shaw)、梅曉鋒(Derek Mei)、Kevin Lim、鄭麗霞(Alicia Tee)、徐明慧(Victoria Tu)等五位華裔,都在今年晚會多個項目獲頒獎表揚。

進入第31屆的大芝加哥亞裔聯盟農曆新年晚會,今年由日裔社區主辦。大會以「超越竹子天花板」(Beyond the Bamboo Ceiling)為主題。

以非亞裔友人為表揚對象的「Sandra Otaka亞美大獎」(Grand Asian American Sandra Otaka Memorial Award)今年頒給了聯邦眾議員蕭考斯基(Jan Schakowsky)。蕭考斯基擔任伊州民代八年,於1998年當選聯邦眾議員至今,是移民眼中公認優秀民代。


他記得當時的州長湯普森宣布任命韓裔Shinae Chun為第一任州長辦公室亞裔美人聯絡人,後來Shinae Chun當上聯邦勞工部婦女局局長。他並提到譚繼平對亞美社區的付出,以及謝祖諒爭取華埠社區中心的堅持等故事。


晚會中還頒發模範社區服務獎,今年華裔社區得主為蕭氏法律公司負責人蕭艾萍(Anne I.Shaw),她曾任大芝加哥亞裔律師協會會長,經常參與義務法律諮詢服務,並協助推動美容證照中文考試,蕭艾萍亦計畫角逐芝市第一區區長。

就讀Muchin預備學院12級學生梅曉鋒,多年來參與華諮處活動,擔任芝加哥馬拉松義工、投入同輩陪審團計畫等,是今年傑出青年獎華裔社區得主。馬來西亞裔社區傑出青年獎得主鄭麗霞,繼父親鄭金光及哥哥之後,也因其義工服務熱忱,獲得大芝加哥亞裔聯盟頒獎表揚。獲得馬來西亞社區模範社區服務獎的Kevin Lim長期支持社區及文化活動,總是默默付出,不求回報。
