In a world in desparate need of heroes - we have a real life one.
Decades before 'Diversity" and "Inclusion" became fashionable terms, Justice Harry W. Low was already at the forefront making positive change in our world.
This month Justice Low celebrates his birthday and is as busy as ever arbitrating cases all over the country.
My colleague ABC7 KGO TV's David Louie and I, a former KRON TV - NBC reporter Suzanne Joe (Kai), co-hosted this video celebrating Justice Low's extraordinary career and service to our community.
While researching for a film project, I visited the archives at UC Berkeley.
The head archivist said there is a resurgence of young people searching for their identities.
I saw them going through old, fragile, dusty newspaper clippings of the 60s and 70s to learn about the revolution when youth stood up to save our world.
On one of the newspaper's front page was Justice Harry W. Low.
Let's celebrate and honor our living heroes now.
This video was originally produced and edited by Steven Joe for Asian, Inc.'s Lifetime Achievement Award honoring Justice Low.

WPIX-TV's Arthur Chi'en introduced her to the audience. Here are excerpts of Curry's remarks (with more coverage of the convention to be posted soon):
Arthur: Let's get right into it. What is the state of journalism?Ann: I think journalism is in a very interesting state of change. I say interesting because there is strain, and there is also opportunity. People are very concerned about the future of journalism and yet did you know that enrollment in journalism schools is up? So there is this kind of awareness that there's an opportunity ahead. Curry acknowledged the struggles of the journalism industry but said, "Rather than be afraid and close up,...open up to what is possible." We don't know what it looks like. We do know it will be broad. I think that there is a great opportunity to be deep in terms of what we can report. So I am extremely excited about it. I think there will be an opportunity to put news in a place in a way that has never been done before in the...

Actress Huang "Junie" Hoang has lost her lawsuit. She sued IMDb for refusing her request to remove her correct age from her IMDb Pro account. A federal jury in Seattle ruled against her lawsuit.
Hoang, now 41, originally filed suit in October 2011 against IMDb.com and its parent company Amazon.com for revealing her true date of birth, which she said opened her up to age discrimination.
In March 18, 2013, all of her claims against Amazon and all but one of her claims against IMDb were dismissed, and on April 12, 2013, a jury found that IMDb was not liable for the remaining claim for breach of contract.
