CASA Families Scavenger Hunt!! :D

Saturday, October 4, 2014. 3:00pm - 4:00pm. TBA.

Hi everyone! CASA is about to have its first family event! This coming Saturday, October 4th, we will be hosting a scavenger hunt around Yale. The hunt will take place between 3-4 pm and will start in a location to be later announced. Once you arrive, each family will be given a list of clues. You will need to take pictures or videos for proof after you've reached each checkpoint, and you need to do so within the hour limit. If you finish before then, you'll return to the place you started so we can check your pictures and videos. The grand prize given to the family that finishes first will be a gift card that can be used towards a family dinner, and smaller prizes will include CASA stickers and shot glasses. These will be awarded on a first-return basis!

Please fill out this Google Form if you're interested! At least 2 members of each family must be present in order to participate!

Nightmarket-poster

Remember last year's Night Market--tantalizing food, enchanting lights, and amazing performances--that drew more than 600 people? The very same event is back this year, with even more food, performances, and culture!

For those of you who weren't there, the Asian American Students Alliance's Night Market seeks to recreate the awesome combination of food, entertainment, and fun found in a Taiwanese night market. After a busy day of studying, Night Market is the place to kick back, relax, and enjoy some performances and booths hosted by Yale’s many cultural groups, such as the Taiwanese American Society, the Korean American Students at Yale, KASAMA, the Muslim Students Alliance, and many, many more.

We hope to see you there on Friday, October 3rd from 6-9 p.m. @ the JE-Branford Walkway!

Food, Entertainment, Fun. Free Admission, but bring cash!

The Future of Hong Kong at Crossroads

Friday, October 3, 2014. 4:30pm. Dunham Lab 220 .

Future_of_hong_kong_at_a_crossroads_(1)

In 1997, Hong Kong was handed back to China under an 1984 agreement giving it “a high degree of autonomy, except in foreign and defence affairs” for 50 years. However, due to Beijing’s recent decision to prescreen candidates for the 2017 elections, the landmark “One country, two systems” scheme for Hong Kong is now at risk of collapse. Due to this controversial decision, there have been wide pro-democratic protests that began with a week-long boycott of classes by students. The Hong Kong police have come under fire due to their use of tear gas and pepper spray to pacify the protesters on Sunday. Protest leaders have informed the demonstrators to retreat if rubber bullets are used against them. Now the economic and political future of Hong Kong seems more uncertain than ever.

George Chen, an award​-​winning journalist and ​book ​author, is a 2014 Yale World Fellow. Currently a financial editor and Mr. Shangkong columnist at the South China Morning Post​​, he is notably equipped to talk about ​how Beijing and Hong Kong ​can try to work together to secure Hong Kong’s future as a democratic territory.

If you answered “yes” to all three questions, then you are ready to apply to 2014 Brown University Strait Talk Symposium, held at Brown University from November 14th to November 21st!

Strait Talk is a nonpartisan, youth-run organization that exists to foster peaceful progress on the Taiwan Strait issue through educating, connecting, and empowering young leaders from both sides of the Taiwan Strait and the United States. Currently in its tenth year, Brown University Strait Talk has brought together more than 250 Chinese, Taiwanese, and Americans to learn and take action on the cross-Strait issue. The symposium has inspired many delegates to go on to initiate programs and activities that promote a peaceful cross-Strait future in their hometowns and around the world.

The week-long symposium will bring together 15 delegates from Taiwan, the US and China to engage in over 35 hours of constructive dialogue sessions as well as conflict resolution workshops to come up with feasible proposals for a sustainable cross-Strait future. Prominent speakers and professors from different US universities and think tanks will also meet and speak with the delegates and discuss cross-Strait issues in various panels throughout the week. At the end of the week, delegates will have the chance to discuss and present their proposals to various policy think tanks in Boston.
