Miscellaneous Links #6

Here are some more links out that have come my way relating to Asians or Asian Americans. As always, links to other sites are provided for informational purposes and do not necessarily imply an endorsement of their contents:

  • Scouting Position for San Diego Padres: On behalf of the San Diego Padres, I would appreciate your consideration in relation to a potential opportunity for you or one of your colleagues/students. In 2009, the Padres will enter their 40th season in Major League Baseball’s (MLB) National League, and I invite you to entertain the possibility of joining our team.

    In an effort to be successful in one of professional sport’s toughest divisions, and in an effort to build a franchise with global appeal, the Padres are making a concentrated effort to expand operations throughout the Pacific, with a specific focus on Eastern Asia. Towards these goals, the Padres are committed to acquiring the best skills from throughout the world, both on and off the field, and recognize that your experiences in
    the region could be valuable to the organization.

    At present we are looking for energetic, self motivated individuals, with good communications skills, and some experience in the game of baseball, who could assist us in evaluating and procuring talented players from Japan, Korea, Taiwan and potentially China. If you are interested, or know someone who might be suitable, please forward an expression of interest and resume to the following email address.

    Kind Regards,
    Trevor Schumm
    Pacific Rim Coordinator
    San Diego Padres

  • Casting Call for Transnational Couples: Go Time Entertainment based in Los Angeles is producing a documentary about the success stories of relationships between Western men (of any race) and Asian women (born and raised primarily in Asia). We are looking for happily married couples who would like to share their story about how they came together and have stayed together despite coming from completely different backgrounds. We will begin conducting film interviews in January 2009. If you or someone you know are interested and live in the Los Angeles area please contact Lyn at for more information.
