WASHINGTON, DC, USA, April 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Washington, DC; April 18, 2018 – Organization of Iranian American Communities (OIAC) deplores the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR) hosting of the Iranian regime’s foreign minister Javad Zarif next week. To show its outrage, OIAC will hold a rally outside the venue beginning at 5pm EST.

Zarif’s appearance at the Council is an affront to the millions of Iranians whose chants of “death to Khamenei, death to Rouhani,” “Hardliner, Reformer, the game is now over,” during the January 2018 uprising in 142 cities demonstrated in no uncertain terms the illegitimacy of the ruling theocracy.
We are reminded daily that Zarif and his masters in Tehran have executed at least 3,500 Iranians (many in public) since Hassan Rouhani took office, making this regime the leading per capita executioner of its own citizens. Since January 2018, over 60 people have been murdered for their role in nationwide protests.
This invitation is all the more regrettable in view of Tehran’s malign activities in Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, Iraq, and beyond.

We invite all human rights organizations, NGOs and concerned citizens to join us.

We urge the panel moderator, Stephen Hadley to ask Zarif the following questions:

– How many Iranian protesters have lost their lives while in custody during the recent uprising?
– Why is Alireza Avaie, a key official responsible for the massacre of thousands of dissidents in 1988 the Justice Minister in Rouhani’s cabinet?
– Why GOI has not allowed the UN reporter on human rights in Iran to visit Iran in nearly three decades?
– Why is GOI providing ballistic missiles to Yemen in contravention of UN Security Council Resolution 2216, banning the export of weapons to the Houthis?
– Why is GOI spending at least $6bn of the Iranian nations wealth to prop up the murderous Assad regime?

About OIAC: The Organization of Iranian-American communities-US (OIAC), all-volunteers non profit organization, believes democracy and human rights in Iran are imperative to the national security of America and peace in the Middle East and beyond.

Suspend Sri Lanka from Commonwealth Until it Fully Implements UN Human Rights Council Resolution 30/1: TGTE

Failing, Sri Lanka should be referred to ICC & and a Referendum for Tamils to decide their future destiny, to ensure a peaceful, permanent political solution.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM , April 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) today urged the Commonwealth Heads of Government (CHOGM) to suspend Sri Lanka from the Commonwealth, until the Government fully implements the recommendations made by the UN Human Rights Council Resolution L 30/1 (due by March 2019).

Failing this, Sri Lanka should be referred to the International Criminal Court (ICC) and a UN Conducted Referendum should be conducted for the Tamils to decide their future destiny, to ensure a peaceful, permanent political solution.

Commonwealth leaders are gathering in London this week. CHOGM exists as 'Custodian of Commonwealth's Values and Principles’.

"Tamils victims remained stunned by the fact that the Sri Lankan Government continues to mislead and hoodwink the international community into thinking that they have, and will take responsibility for the numerous crimes committed by them during the Sri Lankan civil war" said TGTE.

Repeated concerns have been raised about the slow progress occurring in Sri Lanka with regards to implementing the recommendations of the L 30/1 UN Human Rights Council resolution. Despite a two year extension, very little progress has been made during the period between March 2017 and January 2018, with doubts about whether Sri Lanka will be able to implement the UNHRC’s recommendations before March 2019. However, despite continued stalling and the lack of commitment by the Sri Lankan Government, few consequences have been delivered to them for failing to fulfil these commitments.

Despite concerns about Sri Lanka’s actual willingness to fulfil their commitments, CHOGM, which exists as a ‘custodian of Commonwealth values and principles’, allowed Colombo to host its biennial Heads of Government meeting in 2013. The Commonwealth compromised its credibility both within and outside Sri Lanka by shaking hands with a state that has been accused of committing war crimes, crimes against humanity, sexual violence, and structural genocide of the Tamils in their Homeland, which continues to be under military occupation.

Sri Lanka denies any wrongdoing, despite clear and mounting evidence from various sources. These include the report by the Panel of Experts appointed by the then U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, the U.N. Internal Review Report (‘Charles Petrie Report’), the findings of the Dublin People’s Tribunal, the Channel 4’s No-Fire-Zone documentary, and the numerous UN Special Rapporteurs and INGO reports. These have all established that the Government of Sri Lanka committed heinous war crimes and crimes against humanity even during the final stages of the armed conflict in 2009.

As demonstrated recently by the statements released by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, as well as by Deputy High Commissioner Kate Gilmore, the international community has become aware of Sri Lanka’s deceptive acts.

In 1974 when the Commonwealth Conference took place in Sri Lanka, the President of the Tamil United Liberation Front, the late Mr S.J.V Chelvanayagam QC, presented a memorandum to the delegates of the Commonwealth Conference narrating the racial discrimination against, and persecution of the Tamils. The submission concluded: “ It is our hope that the problems of the Tamils of Ceylon will receive the sympathetic consideration of the delegates assembled at this Conference and that they will use their good offices to help the resolution of the problem.” The Commonwealth, which is committed to ending racial oppression, turned a blind eye in 1974.

Since then, the Government of Sri Lanka has continued to violate the human rights of Tamils systematically and pervasively on account of their ethnicity. Over the course of the war, many lives and properties were lost. The plight of the Tamils for freedom and justice is ongoing today.

The Sri Lankan Government continues to mislead the international community about the true situation within the country:

1. There is no political solution to the country’s ethnic conflict anywhere in sight.
2. The Government has not taken any credible steps so far to ensure accountability for the numerous allegations of war crimes and crimes against humanity identified in the April 2011 report of the Secretary General’s Panel of Experts on Accountability in Sri Lanka or on the UN HRC Resolutions.
3. The process of reconciliation that the Sri Lankan government promises has not been demonstrated; and they have failed to implement the resolution’s recommendations
4. Since the end of the civil war, military camps and ‘High Security Zones’ have dotted the Tamils areas and the army has taken control over civilian rule. Political and prisoners of war are still languishing in prisons, the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) which primarily targets Tamils has not been repealed, and lists of missing persons and enforced disappearances are yet to be released.
5. The Sri Lankan government has turned a blind eye to the ongoing attacks on yet another minority population – the Muslims, who have been physically assaulted, their properties set on fire and businesses destroyed by Sinhala racists and extremists. It is clear that this is a regime that will keep on indulging in genocidal violence against sections of its own population unless reined in by the global community.

MECHRIC Denounces Syrian Bishops for Anti-US Statement

Assad is not protecting Christians.

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, April 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Middle East Christian Committee (MECHRIC) firmly rejects the statement issued by John X, Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and all the East, Ignatius Aphrem II, Syrian Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and all the East, and Joseph Absi, Melkite-Greek Catholic Patriarch of Antioch, Alexandria, and Jerusalem which condemns the US strike on Syrian chemical weapons facilities.

“This strike was designed to discourage Assad’s blatant effort to ethnically cleanse the suburbs of Damascus by the heinous use of indiscriminate weapons of mass destruction, in this case poison gas,” said MECHRIC co-chair Tom Harb. “By using these weapons, Assad is causing fear and flight. He is changing the demography to please Iran. If the US does not stop this now, where will it end? Will other inconvenient minorities be next?”

“These bishops have clearly been influenced by Syrian and Iranian propaganda,” added MECHRIC member John Hajjar. “The Alawite regime in Syria has facilitated the growth and arming of Hezbollah in Lebanon for decades which has destroyed the last Christian political stronghold in the Middle East. Assad is not concerned about the future of Christianity, his only concern is holding on to power.

“In the 1980's and 90's” continued Hajjar, “the Syrian Baath regime actively slaughtered the Christians of Lebanon by shelling Christian areas such as Ashrafieh, Jounieh, Zahle which killed over 150,000 people and forced over 700,000 people to leave the country.”

“If the Assad regime is so safe, so why there are over 4 million refugees in Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey? asked Mr. Harb. “Why don't they go back? Some sources believe that the Assad regime is not allowing their return because his goal is to force demographic change.”

MECHRIC stands firmly behind President Trump in the belief that the US and the world cannot allow the use and spread of chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction.

Don't overlook California Civil Code's role in protecting civil rights

LOS ANGELES, CALIF., USA, April 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — “California’s civil code provides strong weapons that attorneys should employ when it comes to proving violations of clients’ civil rights,” says V. James DeSimone, a Los Angeles lawyer who represents victims of civil rights, employment and law enforcement abuses, in a recent column in Forum, the magazine published by Consumer Attorneys of California.

DeSimone explains the intricacies of litigating a civil rights case under California’s Civil Code, by utilizing examples of cases he won for his clients in trial. California law permits the enforcement of civil rights against individuals, companies and government entities. California law prohibits coercive, threatening or intimidating conduct which deprives someone of their rights under California and Federal laws and Constitutions.

For example, while hateful speech alone may be insufficient to state a cause of action, if the speech itself threatens violence against a specific person or group who reasonably fear violence against them or their property and the person making the threats must have an apparent ability to follow through with the violence, a cause of action may be stated under California law.

In cases where there is an insufficient threat of violence, lawyers must focus on the conduct. If it was intimidating, threatening or coercive, lawyers may rely on Civil Code Section 52.1 when filing a complaint.

But sometimes there doesn’t need to be a threat of violence, DeSimone writes. In one case, an employee accused of theft was confined to a room and told she would go to jail if she didn’t confess to something she didn’t do. The subsequent arrest constituted coercive conduct even without actual violence.

Civil codes are also an important part of the arsenal for sexual harassment cases against perpetrators who are not company employees — such as contractors or suppliers — but who function in positions of power over the plaintiff, and the plaintiff cannot easily terminate the relationship, DeSimone writes.

Citing portions of Civil Code Section 51.9, DeSimone points out that in this era of #metoo and #timesup, California civil codes provide an outlet where there is a power differential in a “business, service, or professional relationship between the plaintiff and defendant.” The defendant is liable for sex harassment if he or she “has made sexual advances, solicitations, sexual requests, demands for sexual compliance… or engaged in other verbal, visual, or physical conduct of a sexual nature or of a hostile nature based on gender” that the plaintiff found “unwelcome and pervasive or severe.”

OVER 100,000 EXPECTED AT 'CONDEMN TRUMP RALLY' APRIL 21 – LAFAYETTE PARK / WHITE HOUSE

Press Conference – Tuesday – April 17 – 2 pm – Lafayette Park – Washington, D.C.

Based on my reports from 30 states, we are looking for at least 100,000 brothers and sisters descending on the White House to condemn the racism and warmongering and police brutality.”

— Hashim Nzinga – Chairman – New Black Panther Party

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, April 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Famed social activist, Professor, Dr. Cornel West, Attorney Malik Zulu Shabazz (National President of Black Lawyers for Justice) New Black Panther Party, Black Lives Matter and the American Indian Movement, families of police killings, H. U. Resist, and 100 Black organizations will rally and 'Condemn Donald Trump' Saturday, April 21 (1 pm – 6 pm).

Invited and expected to attend are Congressional Black Caucus Members, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), and NAACP leaders. Organizers have invited former U.S. President Barack Obama to come out and address the serious issues involving his predecessor Donald Trump; an answer is expected this week.

The occasion is the 10,000 Black Men's March. Men, women and all major activist groups will be in attendance. Following the rally, over 10,000 Black Men will march up 16th street NW – up 14th Street NE – and down U Street NW in a powerful display of unity and solidarity. The city will be shut down.

"Based on my reports from 30 states, we are looking for at least 100,000 Brothers and Sisters to descend on the White House to condemn the racism and warmongering and police brutality of this mad-man in the White House – Donald Trump," says New Black Panther Party Chairman Hashim Nzinga

In the 2010 election season, the New Black Panther Party drew the ire of the GOP. The GOP accused then-Attorney General Eric Holder of "coddling the Panthers” and not prosecuting them after the 2008 Philadelphia voting booth scandal.

"Washington D.C. and the government needs to be shut down over the outrages and racist excesses of Donald Trump. It would not surprise me if the whole city and highways come to halt Saturday, April 21" claims Black Lives Matter New York Activist, Hawk Newsome.

March and Rally host Malik Shabazz, Esq., former Chairman of the New Black Panther Party stated, "The National Black Men's Convention is highlighted by a White House rally that will be the most powerful message yet, sent to Donald Trump announcing his soon to be removed from office."

Shabazz and Black Lawyers for Justice led the 3-19 Congressional Lobbying campaign that urged Congress members to 'Condemn Trump and Not Louis Farrakhan' who made a controversial alleged anti-Semitic speech on 2-18-2018. Shabazz is a protege of Louis Farrakhan, is inspired by the Million Man March of 23 years ago.
http://www.fox8live.com/story/37743105/condemn-donald-j-trump-not-farrakhan

The 1-6 pm rally will feature a 32 x 32 stage and 20 x 20 video screen to get the message out to a massive crowd.-END-

ஈழத்தமிழர் விவகாரத்தில் பொதுவாக்கெடுப்பு சாத்தியமா ? பிரதமர் வி.உருத்திரகுமாரன் பதில் !!

கத்தலோனியா பொதுமக்கள் வாக்கெடுப்பு

தமிழீழ மக்கள் பொதுவாக்கெடுப்பின் அடிப்படையிலேயே அரசியல் தீர்வு அமைய வேண்டும் என்ற நிலைப்பாட்டை அழுத்தமாக வலியுறுத்த வேண்டும்.

தேசிய இனப்பிரச்சினைக்கு அரசியற்தீர்வாக தமிழீழத் தனியரசு உட்பட்ட தீர்வுத்திட்டம் தமிழீழ மக்களின் முன்வைக்கப்பட்டு பொதுவாக்கெடுப்பில் மக்களின் ஜனநாயக முடிவுக்கு ஏற்ப அரசியற்தீர்வு காணப்படவேண்டும்”

— வி.உருத்திரகுமாரன்

TORONTO , CANADA , April 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ —

இலங்கை இனப்பிரச்சனை விவகாரத்தில் ஈழத்தமிழ் மக்களுக்கான அரசியற்தீர்வுக்கு பொதுவாக்கெடுப்பு (Referendum)ஒன்று சாத்தியமா என்ற கேள்விக்கு நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கத்தின் பிரதமர் வி.உருத்திரகுமான் பதில் அளித்துள்ளார்.

ஈழத்தமிழ் மக்கள் ஒரு தேசம் என்ற தகுதியினை அனைத்துலகச் சட்டங்களின் அடிப்படையில் கொண்டுள்ளனர். இத் தகுதிக்கான அங்கீகாரத்தை நாம் அனைத்துலக சமூகத்திடம் கோருகின்றோம். இதனை வெளிப்படுத்தும் ஒரு வடிவம்தான் இப் பொதுமக்கள் வாக்கெடுப்புக்கான அரசியற்பரப்புரை இயக்கம். உலக அரசியல் நீதியின் அச்சில் சுழல்வதில்லை. மாறாக நலன்களின் அச்சிலேயே சுழல்கிறது.

"ஈழத் தமிழ் மக்களுக்கு வாய்ப்பான ஒரு அரசியல் சூழலை உருவாக்குவதற்கு நாம் உழைக்க வேண்டும். நிலைமாறுகால நீதி தொடர்பாக சிறிலங்காவின் கபடடும், இந்து சமுத்திரத்தில் இன்று உருவாகிவரும் பூகோள அரசியல் நிலைப்பாடுகளும், ஈழத்தமிழ் மக்களுக்கு ஏதுவான அரசியல் சூழலை உருவாக்குவதற்கு வாய்ப்புக்களாக அமைகின்றன. அத்தகைய ஒரு அரசியற் சூழலில் சர்வதேச அங்கீகாரத்தை பெறும் வகையிலான பொதுவாக்கெடுப்பு நடத்தப்படக் கூடியதாக இருக்கும். அதுவரை எமது சுதந்தரவேட்கையினை உலகுக்கு முரசறைந்து கொண்டிருப்பது அவசியமானதாகும்" என பிரதமர் வி.உருத்திரகுமாரன் அவர்கள் தெரிவித்துள்ளார்.

பொதுவாக்கெடுப்புக்கான மக்கள் இயகத்தின் முதலாவது மக்கள் அரங்கம் கனடாவில் ஞாயிறன்று இடம்பெற்றிருந்தது.

இதில் காணொளிவாயிலாக உரையாற்றியிருந்த பிரதமர் வி.உருத்திரகுமாரன் அவர்களது உரையின் முழுவடிவம்:

இலங்கைத்தீவின் தேசிய இனப்பிரச்சினைக்கு அரசியல் தீர்வு காண்பதற்கு ஈழத் தாயகப்பகுதிகளிலும், ஈழத்தமிழ் மக்கள் புலம் பெயர்ந்து வாழும் நாடுகளிலும் பொதுமக்கள் வாக்கெடுப்பு நடாத்தப்பட வேண்டும் என்ற நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கத்தின் அரசியல் நிலைப்பாட்டுக்கு செயல் வடிவம் கொடுக்கும் வகையில் இன்றைய பொது வாக்கெடுப்புக் கோரும் மக்கள் அரங்கம் அமைகிறது.

தமிழீழ மக்களின் தேசிய சுயநிர்ணய உரிமையின் அடிப்படையிலும் சிங்களத்தின் இனவழிப்பில் இருந்து தம்மைப் பாதுகாத்துக் கொள்வதற்கான பரிகார நீதியின் அடிப்படையிலும் தமிழீழ மக்கள் தமக்கென இறைமையும் சுதந்திரமும் கொண்ட தனிநாட்டை அமைத்துக் கொள்வதற்கான அனைத்து உரித்தையும் கொண்டவர்கள் என்பதே நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கத்தின் அரசியல் நிலைப்பாடாக இருந்து வருகிறது. இந்த நிலைப்பாட்டின் அடிப்படையில் தமிழீழ மக்கள் தமது சுயநிர்ணய உரிமையினை வெளிப்படுத்தும் ஜனநாயக வழிமுறையாகவே இப் பொது வாக்கெடுப்பை நாடுகடந்த தமிழீழ அரசாங்கம் கருதுகிறது.

தேசிய இனப்பிரச்சினைக்கு அரசியற்தீர்வாக தமிழீழத் தனியரசு உட்பட்ட தீர்வுத்திட்ட முன்மொழிவு தமிழீழ மக்களின் முன்வைக்கப்பட்டு, பொதுவாக்கெடுப்பில் மக்கள் வெளிப்படுத்தும் ஜனநாயக முடிவுக்கு ஏற்ப அரசியற்தீர்வு காணப்படவேண்டும் என்ற நிலைப்பாட்டுக்கு அனைத்துலக ஆதரவினைத் திரட்டும் பணியினை இவ் அரசியற்பரப்புரை இயக்கம் மேற்கொள்ளும்.

அண்மையில் நடைபெற்று முடிந்த குர்திஸ்தான், கத்தலோனியா பொதுமக்கள் வாக்கெடுப்புகள் நமக்கு ஒரு தெளிவான செய்தியினைத் தெரிவிக்கின்றன. விடுதலைக்கு அவாவும் மக்களே அதற்கான பொறிமுறையையும் தமது கையில் எடுத்துத் தமது சுதந்திர வேட்கையினை முன்னோக்கித் தள்ள வேண்டும் என்பதே அச் செய்தியாகும்.

தமிழீழ மக்களும் பொதுவாக்கெடுப்பு என்ற பொறிமுறையினைக் கையில் எடுத்தாக வேண்டும். பொதுவாக்கெடுப்பின் அடிப்படையிலேயே அரசியல் தீர்வு அமைய வேண்டும் என்ற நிலைப்பாட்டைத் தமிழ் மக்கள் அழுத்தமாக வலியுறுத்தியாக வேண்டும்.

இவ் அரசியல் பரப்புரை இயக்கத்தில் ஈழத்தாயகமும் தமிழகமும் இணைந்து கொள்ளுதல் மிகவும் முக்கியத்துவம் வாய்ந்ததாகும். ஒரு பொதுவாக்கெடுப்பின் அடிப்படையில் அரசியல்தீர்வு காணப்பட வேண்டும் என்ற கோரிக்கை சிறிலங்காவின் அரசியலமைப்பின் 6வது திருத்தத்துக்கு முரணானது அல்ல. இதனால் சட்டவரையறை என்ற அச்சம் தவிர்த்து ஈழத்தாயகத்தில் இப் பரப்புரை இயக்கத்தினை மேற்கொள்ள முடியும்.

இத்தகைய ஒரு பொதுவாக்கெடுப்பு நடாத்துவதன் நடைமுறைச் சாத்தியம் குறித்த கேள்வி மக்கள் மத்தியில் இருப்பதனையும் நாம் அறிவோம். இவ் விடயத்தில் எமது கருத்து இதுதான்.

ஈழத்தமிழ் மக்கள் ஒரு தேசம் என்ற தகுதியினை அனைத்துலகச் சட்டங்களின் அடிப்படையில் கொண்டுள்ளனர். இத் தகுதிக்கான அங்கீகாரத்தை நாம் அனைத்துலக சமூகத்திடம் கோருகின்றோம். இதனை வெளிப்படுத்தும் ஒரு வடிவம்தான் இப் பொதுமக்கள் வாக்கெடுப்புக்கான அரசியற்பரப்புரை இயக்கம். உலக அரசியல் நீதியின் அச்சில் சுழல்வதில்லை. மாறாக நலன்களின் அச்சிலேயே சுழல்கிறது.

ஈழத் தமிழ் மக்களுக்கு வாய்ப்பான ஒரு அரசியல் சூழலை உருவாக்குவதற்கு நாம் உழைக்க வேண்டும். நிலைமாறுகால நீதி தொடர்பாக சிறிலங்காவின் கபடடும், இந்து சமுத்திரத்தில் இன்று உருவாகிவரும் பூகோள அரசியல் நிலைப்பாடுகளும், ஈழத்தமிழ் மக்களுக்கு ஏதுவான அரசியல் சூழலை உருவாக்குவதற்கு வாய்ப்புக்களாக அமைகின்றன. அத்தகைய ஒரு அரசியற் சூழலில் சர்வதேச அங்கீகாரத்தை பெறும் வகையிலான பொதுவாக்கெடுப்பு நடத்தப்படக் கூடியதாக இருக்கும். அதுவரை எமது சுதந்தரவேட்கையினை உலகுக்கு முரசறைந்து கொண்டிருப்பது அவசியமானதாகும்»

இப் பரப்புரை இயக்கத்துக்கான ஆதரவினை வழங்குமாறு உலகத்தமிழ் மக்களைக் கோருவதுடன் இப் பரப்பரை இயக்கத்துடன் இணைந்து செயற்பட முன்வருமாறும் தோழமையுடன் வேண்டிக் கொள்கிறோம் என பிரதமர் வி.உருத்திரகுமாரன் தெரிவித்துள்ளார்.

Dr. Bruce Spivey of The Pacific Vision Foundation to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Bruce Spivey can be considered a pioneer and a legend in the Ophthalmology field. He currently holds two of its top honors; The Laureate Award from the American Academy of Ophthalmologists and the Howe Medal from the American Ophthalmological Society. His accomplishments in practice, research, publication, education and clinical administration are part of a CV (Curriculum Vitae, the doctor’s resume) that is more than 25 pages long. He spent time in South Vietnam while in the Army and it inspired him to create eye care clinics in developing countries. He is also a remarkable philanthropist who sits on the Board of colleges and non-profit foundations, including the one he established in 1977 (The Pacific Vision Foundation.) Still, what this doctor is most, is the humble kind of guy that springs from Iowa, with a modest way of speaking touched by humor.

“I don’t claim to be Bill Gates, or to have the solution to fix the world. It’s just that you get presented with challenges and opportunities. You have the choice of avoiding them or throwing yourself into them. I’ve always chosen to get involved.”

That is what Dr. Spivey had to say about his philanthropic work. The reason he first decided to become a doctor? That’s one of the humorous moments, as revealed in a 2016 issue of the publication Scope. Dr. Spivey’s best friend’s mom, who was a nurse, wanted her son to become a doctor. Since young Spivey had no ideas of his own, he thought he would consider that same option. The decision to focus specifically on eye care came when he was in University of Iowa Medical School and suffered an eye injury. There was no one in Cedar Rapids who could adequately diagnose and treat it, and the faculty member attempting to, offered Spivey one of those opportunities. He went on to become a highly trained Ophthalmologist in the Army, and later returned to the University of Iowa as faculty, where Spivey’s devotion to the education of eye care specialists (both nationally and internationally) took root.

Medical education is one of the accomplishments that gives the now-retired doctor great pride. Dr. Spivey also takes delight in building new establishments and re-enervating existing ones. Without being self-aggrandizing, he tells of how he resurrected The California Pacific Medical Center from bankruptcy, and how he was the founding CEO of The American Academy of Ophthalmologists, which is today the largest and strongest of its kind in the world. He similarly breathed new life into the International Council of Ophthalmologists and launched The Pacific Vision Foundation– which delivers compassionate and expert care to all those who need it regardless of the ability to pay and partners with a Lions-sponsored Eye Institute and with California Pacific Medical Center/Sutter.

While he has no special mantra or role model, Dr. Spivey believes good management is about hiring capable people, giving them responsibility, faith and support, and then letting them run with it. He says this gets much more out of people and organizations than you would ever expect.

Even with his full mix of activities, Dr. Spivey finds time to enjoy life with his wife of the last 30 years Patti Amanda, and his grandchildren who are now in their twenties (not one became a doctor. Tune in to learn more about this wonderful eye doctor and all he has produced in his long and illustrious career.

A unique survivor to survivor Matrimonial platform : Divine Relations

A unique survivor to survivor matrimonial platform

The wearer only knows where the shoe pinches”

— Anonymous

MUMBAI AREA, INDIA, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA, April 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Divine Relations was founded by Vivek Sharma, a marketing professional who has spent his entire career in the medical field and has seen many patients suffering from chronic diseases. Vivek founded an NGO named Mickey Amogh Foundation and it hasnt been an easy journey for him. He suffered a tragedy when he lost his only son to an undiagnosed medical condition in 2014. The incident changed his life.

Having seen the plight of those suffering from chronic diseases, diseases,his heart always went out to them. The idea for Divine Relations came to me after his encounters with two brilliant doctors, a renowned oncologist from Pune and nephrologist from Mumbai. In separate conversations with both of them, a similar point came up: how patients recovering from chronic diseases find it difficult to find a match for marriage. He was going through a transformative tragic experience at the time himself and decided to do something to help others. That’s how Divine Relations came into being.

The biggest problem they face right now is to spread awareness about the site. They have been using social media for the purpose but they want to reach out to more people. The doctors, who have always considered this a huge problem the patients face, are happy to see such an initiative.

Mickey – Amogh Foundation is a Non Government Organization working for Healthcare Awareness and Access, Child Education and Women Empowerment. Based at Goregaon (W), Mumbai, India. Mickey – Amogh Foundation was founded in 2013 and since then it has been working through best possible ways to help concerned people. We have developed Divine Relations, A unique patient to patient matrimonial platform and pair4life – A novel platform to help kidney failure patients find a compatible donor when their own donor is having incompatible blood group. By developing such free to use platforms, They wish to touch the lives of as many needy people as we can, positively and effectively.
