I often find that events happening in the world parallel things that are happening in a micro-level around my life. I’ve always been a firm believer that there aren’t really that many unique events in the world, that macro-level events replicate themselves in microenvironments. The example I’m going to use is “superpowers in a post-superpower world,” or more specifically, “How Lambda Phi Epsilon mirrors the United States of America.” I’m finding it increasingly fascinating how similar the problems of each are to each other and how even more similar the responses that each group can take to their problems can be.

This is a correction to our earlier message with the subject line Application for AANAPISI Designation Open sent on July 14, 2010.
Please note that the attached announcement is for the U.S. Department of Education application for Asian American Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institutions (AANAPISI) funding (under Title III, Part A) and not for the reopening of eligibility for AANAPISI designation. This funding application closes on August 9, 2010. If you applied for designation (opened December 7, 2009 and closed January 6, 2010), you can now apply for funding under this announcement.
Only AANAPISI-designated institutions can apply for funding under this announcement. If you did not apply for designation, but your institution may be interested, we anticipate that the announcement for the reopening of eligibility for AANAPISI designation will be made soon. We will notify you once the announcement is published in the Federal Register.
Please disseminate this correction widely. We apologize for the inconvenience.

I’ve included the below post because I feel that it’s critical that we get the word out on the impact of the Gulf Oil spill, especially on the AAPI community that is there in the region. Many people don’t know that there is a population of AAPI’s living there, mostly South East Asian, and are deeply affected by the oil spill. Read all about it below.
