Sutter Health’s California Pacific Medical Center is denying claims made by the California Nurses Association (CNA) that it discriminates in hiring Filipino and foreign-graduate nurses. Three employees of St. Luke’s Hospital, a Sutter affiliate in San Francisco, have filed complaints charging that between 2007 and 2009 an informal no-hiring policy kept out Filipino nurses.

Korean Buddhists Looking for Love

By Aruna Lee, Aug 30, 2010 4:40 PM

Meeting that special someone is not usually easy, but for Korean Buddhists in the Bay Area it can be extra difficult. Korean-Americans are overwhelmingly Christian, so meeting fellow Buddhists, whether for friendship or romance, is a challenge. But the Korean-language daily Korea Times reports that TARA, an organization for young practicing Korean Buddhists in Northern California, is trying to help facilitate those connections. Last Saturday, about 30 Korean-American Buddhists from around the country gathered at a TARA event in the home of local businessman Hae Duk Park in Los Gatos, hoping to meet one another and perhaps find the perfect partner.

Diverse Input Sought on SJ Police Chief Hire

By Sarah Damian, Aug 27, 2010 4:00 PM

The city of San Jose is seeking community input to help find a new police chief. In public meetings held throughout the city, residents have been sharing with authorities what they deem to be important qualities the new chief should have. The meetings are being simultaneously translated into Spanish and Vietnamese.

El Observador's Rosario Vital reports that outreach to ethnic communities is crucial, particularly after retired chief Rob Davis was criticized during his tenure for his lack of leadership in improving relations between police and the Latino and Vietnamese communities. San Jose police have had several instances of highly publicized run-ins with both communities. In one, a Vietnamese woman brandishing a vegetable peeler was shot in her home by the police. In another, officers were videotaped beating Phuong Ho, who appeared to be unarmed. San Jose also had a high rate of arrests for public intoxication, with Latinos making up a disproportionate number of those arrests.
