Anil Dash : Ask The White House: Immigration Reform Today I had the chance to ask a question of Vice President Joe Biden and White House Domestic Policy Director Cecilia Munoz in a Skype Q&A. The key thing I wanted to focus on is that those of us in the tech community have been promised so much in immigration reform, so I hope equal thought has been given to how we can serve those who are left among the most vulnerable people in society due to current policies.
But the highlight for me was getting to tell the Vice President that good reform matters because it's positive changes to immigration policy almost 50 years ago that made it possible for my parents to come here and to provide me with an unimaginably blessed life. That Joe Biden immediately understood my parents' story to be precisely what makes America great is an incredible validation of their lifetime of work, and I couldn't be more proud.
Plus, he said he'll call me later. :) In all, a pretty fun chat.

ABC 7 News - WJLA : A memorial service for Nelson Mandela is scheduled for later this morning at the National Cathedral in Washington.
Vice President Joe Biden will be among those in attendance.
Senator Ben Cardin : #WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-Md.) lauded the announcement by Vice President Joe Biden that the #Obama Administration will take steps to help #Holocaust survivors living in the United States access needed services, such as #health care and #nutritional services, without having to live in a nursing home or assisted living facility. The Holocaust Survivor Assistance Initiative announced today complements bipartisan legislation introduced by Senator Cardin and Senator Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) – S.999, the “Responding to Urgent Needs of #Survivors of the Holocaust Act or the ‘‘#RUSH Act” – which would create a point person within the Administration for connecting nonprofit and community partners with Holocaust survivors in need. S. 999 would also add Holocaust survivors to the list of groups receiving priority for #social services through the Older Americans Act (OAA. In October 2013, the HELP Committee approved legislation reauthorizing the OAA that includes Cardin-Kirk ( Senator Mark Kirk) language providing for greater Administration focus on the needs of the survivor community.
“As survivors of terror and torture, these #victims of the #Holocaust came to our country seeking the #American Dream, and they have enriched our nation. Now they need additional social services that will allow them to age in place,” said Senator Cardin. “Time is running short for this community. The Administration has taken meaningful steps to fulfill our obligation to provide them with community supports.”
Approximately 120,000 Holocaust survivors live in the United States, with an average age of 80. Nearly one-quarter are age 85 or older and three-in-five are women. Two-thirds of Holocaust survivors live alone, placing them at greater risk of institutionalization. In addition, more than half of all Holocaust survivors who immigrated to the United States after 1965 live below the federal poverty level and have few resources. 2 days ago - View -
For almost five years now, the Obama administration has encouraged the American people to ask or answer questions over the Internet. On Wednesday, December 11th, we’ll see a new wrinkle: the White House is using a collaboration between Microsoft’s search engine, Bing, and Skype to enable people to ask questions from their house.
The occasion is a conversation on immigration reform with Vice President Joe Biden and the Director of the Domestic Policy Council, Cecilia Muñoz.
In addition to questions posed on Twitter at #AskTheWhiteHouse (virtually old hat in 2013), people will be able to use Skype to record short messages, as campaign manager Lucy Woolfenden explained at Skype’s blog.
According to Woolfenden, “a select group of questioners” will also connect to the White House via live Skype Video Calls. (The criteria for their selection was not disclosed.)
That the use of real-time online video links between elected officials and Americans isn’t exactly a groundbreaking of technology in government in late 2013, which says something about the world we live in.
It’s hard to believe that almost two years ago, President Obama joined a Google+ Hangout in January 2012, followed by many more Hangouts from the White House by members of his administration. 2 days ago - View -

It had sent two B-52 bombers through the new zone without notification. Mr Biden’s visit became a chance to calm things down. http://econ.st/1ki8Zns 4 days ago - View -
