ZUMAKIPEDIA: PAULA BAGASAO
PAULA IN ACTION AT A RECENT GLASSELL PARK NC MEETING
(Sounds like she has become what she once fought against. See below)
Paula Bagaso, PhD, also known sometimes as Paula Y. Bagaso used to work for Bill Clinton, during the good old days as his Head of Information Techonology. I'm sure that comes in handy at her "Global-Knowledge" guerilla-research firm. [Like Fed-EX, when you absolutley, positively have to have your opposition research, overnight.]
Paula Bagaso said…There are other creative Web-based approaches to time. Paula Bagasao, 51, president and CEO of Global Knowledge Services, uses the Web to make more time. Her company, based in Los Angeles, offers "rapid-research services" for information-hungry companies.
"Clients often come to me needing information immediately," she explains. "The only way to do that is to work all night long."
But instead of hiring people who are willing to work through the night, Bagasao has managed to build a network of researchers on the East Coast, on the West Coast, and in the Philippines. Her firm's project schedules follow the sun, so her clients receive the information that they request faster than they would otherwise. "The Internet lets you work with really good people while crossing boundaries of time and geography," she says. "I could not have done that 10 years ago."
[WOW PAULA! YOU ARE SO RIGHT! LOOKS LIKE WERE BIRDS OF A FEATHER! LOOK WHAT I FOUND OUT THIS PAST HOUR. YOU ARE TRULY AN INSPIRATION!]
She's given a lot of money to Senators and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and fought to have the GPNC ballot printed in Tagalong/Philpino. [See Below]
Paula Bagasao sits on Glassell Park NC, is part of PROH-LA, and is co-founder and president of Global Knowledge Services, Inc., a small business firm providing research and strategy services to private and public sector organizations. Previously, she served as Director for Information Technology Research at the Tomas Rivera Policy Institute in 1999 and before that, in the Clinton Administration, first in the White House and then at US Agency for International Development Dr. Bagasao has an extensive background in education, research, science and technology.
GKS, Inc was founded in 1998 by Paula Y. Bagasao and Brad J. Bagasao, who serve as the senior research principals for the Company. Trained long and hard as able and credible social, political, economic and human services researchers -- both of us know how important good research is...(end of free story access)- Paula Y. Bagasao
Even though it's called PROH-LA (as in "Pro Hills LA") Bagasao is a nationally known fighter against oak trees in San Fransico, too! Even NEW YORK TIMES picked up on her compassionate activism for property owner "rights".

New Laws Crack Down on Urban Paul Bunyans
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 29 2006
The tree wars seem likely to escalate along with stricter tree laws. In Los Angeles, for instance, the City Council is about to consider an amendment to the city's oak tree ordinance, which protects native oaks at least eight inches in diameter. The expanded ordinance would include three other species - black walnuts, California sycamores and bay laurels - and protect more trees by reducing the diameter of a landmark tree to four inches.
Most notably, violators could be charged with a misdemeanor and, in extreme cases, have their building permit withheld for up to 10 years. The ordinance, moreover, would require developers to get a permit to knock down protected trees and replace them with new trees at a ratio of at least 2 to 1.
Paula Bagasao, co-founder of Proh-LA, a group dedicated to protecting property rights on hillsides, especially vacant lots, called the ordinance "a backyard building moratorium" that would delay projects and add unnecessary costs. She finds the inclusion of black walnut trees particularly irksome.
"These nuts fall all over East L.A., sending up all this black stuff and giving birth to little walnut trees," she said. "The nuts fall on peoples' heads at parties. The walnut tree is not an endangered species." - Paula Bagasa
