"The U.S. offers unbounded opportunities in terms of freedom and money. In return it robs you of your soul," said Victor Menezes, senior vice chairman of Citigroup.
Indo Asian News Service
Chicago, September 29

The U.S. offers many opportunities for freedom and wealth but robs people's souls, a top Indian American banker told hundreds of his community members here, urging them to invest in values rather than money.
"The U.S. offers unbounded opportunities in terms of freedom and money. In return it robs you of your soul," said Victor Menezes, senior vice chairman of Citigroup.
Menezes was speaking at the annual banquet of the Indo American Centre, a non profit community service organisation that serves immigrants from the South Asian community in Chicago. Around 500 people attended the event.
"Invest in your family, in achievements, not money and live below your means," he urged the business leaders and community members at the banquet.

In the Canadian news media, minorities are significantly under-represented.
How biased is mainstream (Canadian) media?
Editorial By:
Asians and other visible minorities play an increasingly important role in North American society. Visible minorities consist of 10 percent of Canada’s population. Asians have been for several decades the main source of migrants into Canada. There is also a growing Canadian born Asian population in Canada. Together, Asian-Canadians have contributed and helped shape Canadian society. In the last two decades, the Canadian government has acknowledged that minorities as a legitimate and integral component of Canada’s much vaunted “mosaic.” This commitment to diversity exists within the Multicultural Act and Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Yet, the mass media continues to garner criticism for their unbalanced, biased and inaccurate coverage of minorities. Their actions have influenced how Canadians perceive Asians as we as Asians view ourselves in the media.

Canada - ID cards debated ---Commons committee on citizenship and immigration has found little support or compelling evidence to show why such a card is necessary
From: The Toronto Star. Oct. 7, 2003. 06:34 AM
BRUCE CAMPION-SMITH OTTAWA BUREAU
OTTAWA - A national ID card, touted by Immigration Minister Denis Coderre, would be horrendously expensive, do little to enhance national security and could mark a troubling invasion of privacy that many Canadians will not accept, a Commons committee report will warn today.
After a year of study and consultations, the Commons committee on citizenship and immigration has found little support or compelling evidence to show why such a card is necessary. See full article at:

Toronto- Goan Inter-Village Soccer Finals

Bogmallo clinched the Goan Inter-Village Soccer Tournament with a solitary goal win over Aldona on Sunday. A 35-yard goal by Xavier Rodrigues, off a short pass from a free kick, floated into the right-hand corner of the Aldona net. The intended cross dipped into the goal, probably helped by the cold weather, catching goalkeeper Justin D'Silva completely off-guard as he had stepped forward.
The goal disappointed Justin greatly since just earlier he had saved superbly a penalty-kick. Justin was the main barrier for Bogmallo as he often foiled the forwards with his quick reflexes.
Bogmallo, who last won the Gaudencio Fernandes Memorial Trophy in 1998, had the better of the play.
Aldona were content on defending. Missing one of its star players, Joe Fernandes, for much of the match, the Aldona attacked suffered. Joe can in very late in the match but hampered by a back injury, he could not contribute much. Just after conceding the goal, Aldona made two frantic attempts at the Bogmallo. One deft shot was saved on the goal line by forward Dempo player, John D'Souza.
Aldona, a team made up mostly of D'Silva brothers and cousins, were lucky to have made into the final. They edged out Calangute in the semi-finals. Bogmallo crashed into the final with an unconvincing 3-1 win over Margoa, the holders.
