CODE OF ETHICS AND CONDUCT
The Asian American Council (formerly known as Asian American Advisory Council) was originally conceptualized and created as a necessary bridge between the New York City Police Department and the diverse Asian American communities to create a platform from which the Asian American communities could voice their concerns over issues involving police relations and to educate the community about police tactics, procedures and policies. The purpose was to improve tactical and operational strategies in reducing crime in Asian American communities and in improving communications and law enforcement efforts.
As with the changing times, the council has evolved and expanded its scope to improve the quality of life of the people, address critical public policy issues, promotion of benevolent works and to promote friendship between local governments and international counterparts.
The Council has an active governing body responsible for setting the mission and strategic direction of the organization and oversight of finances, operations, and policies.
The governing body ensures that that the members or trustees have the necessary skills, experience and wisdom to carry out the mission and duties of their office. It also ensures that the organization conducts its transactions and dealings with integrity, honesty and honorably; that it is fair and inclusive, and has the capacity to carry out its programs effectively. It likewise ensures that the resources of the organization are responsibly and prudently managed.

I've seen a lot of confusion out there on what types of razors are OK to take with you in your carry-on baggage. This post is just a quick and basic attempt to clear up any confusion. Let me just start by saying that electric razors are OK, but straight razors are a no-go.
These two photos below show a safety razor and the removable blade that they use. They're making a come back thanks to the close shave they provide and the extremely affordable price of the replacement blades. It basically unscrews and you can insert a razor blade. Because these razor blades are so easy to take out, safety razors are not permitted in your carry-on luggage with the blade. The blades must be stored in your checked luggage.

This is a disposable razor. They come in two types. The kind that is completely disposable (handle and all), or the kind where you replace them with cartridges. These are permissible in carry-on luggage with the blade and replacement cartridges.
