Datos recientes indican que los latinos corren un mayor riesgo de sufrir de la enfermedad de Alzheimer / Nuevas investigaciones científicas revelan que la enfermedad de Alzheimer es un problema significativo para los latinos de edad avanzada y sus familiares. También existe la posibilidad de que muchos latinos no estén al tanto del riesgo al que están expuestos. Según un informe del año 2010 publicado por la Asociación de Alzheimer (Alzheimer’s Association), los latinos son aproximadamente una vez y media más propensos a contraer la enfermedad de Alzheimer que las personas de raza blanca, pero tienen menor probabilidad de tomar conocimiento de la enfermedad a través de un diagnóstico correcto.

Hilbert Morales El oBSErVaDor

Human trafficking is defined as the illegal trade of humans against their will for the purposes of sexual exploitation, forced labor, or modern-day slavery. District 2 Supervisor Cindy Chavez shepherded the efforts needed to assemble Board referral 71037 which was unanimously approved by the Board of Supervisors (BoS), County of Santa Clara last april 29, 2014. This ‘Board referral’ directed the County administration (Jeffrey Smith, County Executive) to create a Human Trafficking Commission with the expectation that any fiscal impact (operations budget and staffing costs) will be presented to the BoS by the administration and considered by the BoS in the 2014-15 budget process. The S.f. Chronicle’s insight Section, June 1, 2014, p.E6 devoted two pages to “HUMan TraffiCKinG”, a special report on Human trafficking in the San francisco Bay area. it’s lead article entitled ‘a Plague of Exploitation Hits Home’ begins by asking “The (S.f.) Bay area prides itself on its progressive politics, forward looking culture, and concern for human rights around the globe. So why is this one of america’s top markets for human trafficking?” its second article, entitled “Combating exploitation in sex trade will take multiple strategies” recommends: 1) regulate massage

parlors. 2) require medical reporting and 3) iinvest in training.” To this may be added an effort to inform the public about the human trafficking which is happening today in all our communities. an fBi 2009 report identified 13 areas with the largest incidence of child sex trafficking in the nation. one such area was San francisco. During July 2013 the fBi, in collaboration with local law enforcement agencies, conducted an operation which rescued 12 children and charged 17 adults with exploiting them. Thus, Supervisor Cindy Chavez is leading a timely action which resulted in the establishment of a ‘Human Trafficking Commission’ here in the County of Santa Clara. in addition to Supervisor Cindy Chavez, District attorney Jeff rosen and Sheriff laurie Smith will be ‘Co-Chairs’. The San Jose Police Department (Chief larry Esquivel) already has a dedicated special unit dealing with ‘human trafficking’. other partnerships include the County Counsel, Public Defender, Probation, Social Services, Behavioral Health Services, office of Women’s Policy, Superior Court and Santa Clara County Police Chief’s association representatives. Two community representatives will be nominated by the South Bay Coalition

tras tanto vamos a celebrar el mes de orgullo. orgullo de ser capaz de amar a cualquier persona sin importar el género.

en un lugar tan diverso. Yo estoy acostumbrado a este estilo de vida en el área de la bahía, sin embargo no es lo mismo en otros estados.

El miércoles en la capital de nuestra nación algo realmente genial sucedió. El director de una escuela secundaria local anuncio que era gay durante el día de celebración de orgullo de la escuela. Dio un discurso y explicó cómo él acababa de cumplir 50 años y estaba cansado de esconderse. Todo el mundo aplaudió incluyendo el alcalde y el primer concejal abiertamente gay del distrito.

Me olvido de cómo las personas tenían que pelear por los derechos básicos que ahora disfrutamos. Me olvido de lo mal que alguna gente todavía lo tiene. los países que aún tienen un largo camino para llegar a darse cuenta de que la orientación sexual no debe realmente importar. Me olvido de lo difícil que debe haber sido a salir sobre todo en las familias religiosas. Me olvido de lo difícil que debe salir y declara su orientación en las familias de hoy en día.

a veces me olvido de lo que significa vivir en el área de la bahía. Es una cosa tan hermosa poder definir tu sexualidad sin sentirse avergonzado. Soy afortunada de vivir

He oído diferentes historias sobre como mis amigos les dijeron a sus padres. algunos todavía no tienen una rela-

and the community, will be required and must be established. The general public, which is very diverse in both cultures and languages, must become informed.

The Human Trafficking Commission will investigate the nature and scope of human trafficking in the County of Santa Clara including both labor and sex trafficking. it will craft model victim-centered policies, services, and prevention measures to address this issue. it will craft legislative and policy recommendations which will be presented to the BoS for consideration. it will support the apprehension and prosecution of traffickers by collaborating and sharing information and strategies with all stakeholder partners, local, regional, national and international. The human trafficking that is happening here in this county is part of a global enterprise which has an annual cash flow of $39 billion.

an immediate issue is that the SJPD aggressive human trafficking prevention unit, which has been responsible for arrests, investigations, and assistance in court proceedings, will soon need ‘bridge funding’ because its current grant funding is ending this June 30th. This gap in police enforcement, law enforcement training and prosecution assistance must be attended to soon by the City of San Jose and the County of Santa Clara. This is especially important in light of the scheduled Super Bowl 2016 event. Super Bowls are known to cause a dramatic increase in human trafficking. now is the opportune time for the newly created Human Trafficking Commission to ‘do its thing’ to mitigate the outcomes of human trafficking during the event.

in the County of Santa Clara human trafficking is a growing challenge. it denies many residents their basic human rights and dignity. it strains the county’s safety net by increasing the need for law enforcement and necessary victim services. innovative solutions and improved collaboration, coupled with information dissemination between governmental agencies

ción con algunos miembros de la familia y algunos evitan el tema por completo. Para mi, la orientación sexual no define a una persona. Es sólo parte de su historia como todos los demás. a algunos les gusta ser muy privados y otros les gusta decírselo a todo el mundo. El mes de junio es un simple recordatorio para todos que deben estar orgullosos y aceptar quien son. Me parece que una vez que eso suceda otras personas se darán cuenta de que deben ser tolerante. El mes de orgullo es un buen recordatorio de todos los cambios y los que faltan. al igual que muchas comunidades, han tenido grandes luchas y siguen luchando por la igualdad, porque por alguna extraña razón aún no están allí.

The current general ‘laissez-faire’ attitude is used by human traffickers to their advantage. it is not just about sex; it is about cheap labor for everything from hotels, restaurants, construction, landscaping, child care, and home cleaning services. it is time to address all forms of human trafficking here.

COMMUNITY

Santa Cruz   California California enfrenta una de las peores sequías en la historia moderna; hay comunidades que incluso viven bajo la amenaza de quedarse sin agua en los próximos diez años. En algunas regiones, se han impuesto restricciones en el consumo de agua en los campos, y los productores de fresa están particularmente preocupados porque la falta de lluvia está aumentando la salinidad en los suelos. “Como a todos los cultivos aquí en California, la sequía nos está afectando bastante. Afortunadamente nosotros contamos con mucha agua de pozos, pero lo que pasa es que como no llovió durante los dos primeros meses del año, hemos tenido que bombear mucha agua y las reservas están disminuyendo. ¡Eso no es bueno!”, indica Mark Bolda, especialista en fresas y otras bayas de Extensión Cooperativa de la Universidad de California. Las lluvias, según el investigador, tienen un impacto enorme en la salinidad. Con una sola vez que llueva, el nivel de sal en el suelo puede disminuir hasta en un 50 por ciento. Bolda explica que una parte

importante de la producción de fresa se encuentra concentrada en el área de Oxnard, Santa María, Watsonville y Salinas, comunidades agrícolas localizadas muy cerca del mar y cuya irrigación depende de las reservas de agua de lluvia. Pero debido a que no llovió el invierno pasado, esas reservas disminuyeron mucho y donde hubo agua dulce ahora está entrando el agua de mar, aumentando la salinidad, lo que podría generar problemas en el futuro porque la planta de la fresa es muy sensible.

de salinidad ha ido aumentando poco a poco a medida que la sequía recrudece, y el problema es que la fresa es una planta muy sensible a la sal, lo que posiblemente provocará una ligera disminución en la cosecha. “La calidad de la fruta no va a disminuir, porque los productores solo envían al mercado lo mejor, pero si podría ser que haya menos fresas, no mucho menos, solo un poco menos y entonces los precios de la fresa y la mora podrían subir un poquitito”, sostiene el especialista.

investigan, en los condados de Santa Clara, San Luis Obispo, San Diego y Fresno, si la reducción en los niveles de irrigación, ya sea en un 25, 50 o 75 por ciento afectaría la apariencia, sabor y textura de la fruta, o por el contrario, intensificaría sus características. La investigación involucra el

regar pequeñas parcelas de fresa con diferentes cantidades de agua y el uso de fórmulas determinadas que ayudarán a determinar cuánta agua es necesaria para la producción. Una vez que la fruta ha crecido, la investigación incluye la degustación. Se pedirá a consumidores que opinen so-

bre el sabor y apariencia. Pero el sabor es solo una fase de la investigación porque también se evaluará el valor nutritivo de la fruta.

California es el principal productor de fresa en el mundo y a nivel nacional. Casi el 90 por ciento de las fresas que se cultivan en los Estados Unidos provienen de California. De acuerdo a un reporte de la comisión de fresas de California, en el 2013 la industria de la fresa contribuyó a la economía estatal con 3.4 mil millones de dólares y 70 mil empleos.

En California, un estado semidesértico, la falta de lluvia es un problema que se agudiza en ciertos años, y los agricultores están buscando nuevas opciones para producir alimentos con menos agua.

able instruction of students having multiple ethnicities, mother-language skills, and different cultural backgrounds. Jennifer Thomas, SJTA, emphasized that teachers and parents must be informed, and included early, if classroom instruction changes are to be made effectively and efficiently. A closing summary was made by Supervisor Mike Wasserman, President, Board of Supervisors, County of Santa Clara.

Everyone at all levels of this society and economy are affected by the shortage of potable water. Efforts to recycle, conserve and improve/ expand storage capacity were described. Investment in solar/wind energy to provide electric power to desalination processes/plants is essential. This would add potable water in volume to existing supplies. But at what cost? Effective monitoring and regulations need reform & updating.

The second panel discussed “REGION: Infrastructure issues that impact Silicon Valley. Here two current conditions were expressed: a) About half of the work force laboring in San Jose commutes to their jobs from elsewhere; they live elsewhere; and no effective public transit system exists today. And b) A very large homeless population lives here in Silicon Valley, which is a center of great wealth and influence. Equity is non-existent as long as income disparity exists. Affordable housing is not available in sufficient quantity. The lack of a redevelopment agency hampers efforts to mitigate this housing shortfall.

The fourth panel addressed “Federal: Bridging the world’s capital of innovation with Washington, D.C. and was moderated by Ron Gonzales, CEO, Hispanic Foundation Silicon Valley. Unlike Los Vegas, what happens in Washington, D.C., does not stay in Washington, D.C. There is a need for the use of more ‘public-private sector partnerships to address many neglected infrastructural issues. Topics briefly touched were ‘how to encourage more women to enter STEAM careers’; the training levels necessary; encouraging Latinos to become informed skilled workforce needed by CA commercial sector; and the impact of having a local ‘Patent Office’.

El entorno único del Estado Dorado, con su larga costa en el Océano Pacífico proporciona el clima ideal para la producción de esta fruta. Sin embargo, la sequía que viene afectando al estado mantiene preocupados a los productores y especialistas de Extensión Cooperativa de la UC.Bolda indica que el nivel

“Nosotros nos enfocamos más en usar el agua que tenemos de una manera más eficiente. Por ejemplo, en el condado de Monterrey, el doctor Mike Cahn está haciendo experimentos, además de los esfuerzos de Extensión Cooperativa, los freseros y los productores de mora que buscan cómo usar el agua de manera más eficiente”, indica Bolda. Para lograrlo cuentan con el apoyo de expertos de la Universidad de California quienes

About 250 individuals attended the Silicon Valley Economic Forum at the Computer Museum in Mountain View. The Silicon Valley Leadership Group (SVLG) organized the forum. The first panel addressed “Innovation, Driving technological and social change in Silicon Valley.” Moderator Andrea Mackenzie, General Manager, Open Space Authority presided over the discussion. “Incredible change has happened in this information age which has made it necessary to understand how to access and understand information. Workforce members now are hired for what they can do for a firm with understanding and reliability. Preparation is essential in areas of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics). How does one go about learning? One platform, the Khan Academy, is already available online to all who have a computer. A major reform is the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), which now allocates resources at the School Board level. Teachers must be included ,and informed about the needs of industry, to ensure that instructional changes are made to develop the informed skilled workforce needed. Innovation has changed education. Today reforms are needed in traditional approaches to en-

The third panel dealt with ‘California business climate--broken or bustling? A panelist was Tony Estremera, District Board Chair, Santa Clara Valley Water District. “Where water flows, the economy grows” was an apt introduction concerning the current drought impact.

Las investigaciones se llevarán a cabo durante tres años; al finalizar ese periodo se darán a conocer los resultados.

In closing this SV Regional Ecoonmic Summit, the priority items were a) Improvement of education at all levels; b) reform of immigration and IRS tax code and c) develop and refine policy dealing with energy and potable water in a sustainable manner.

San Jose CALIFORNIA Mi Pueblo Foods, the San Jose-based family-grown Hispanic grocery chain, announced its formal emergence from Chapter 11 reorganization after having completed a necessary financial restructuring. As part of this announcement, the company also shared new leadership changes with Javier Ramirez being appointed to the position of President and CEO. Ramirez will succeed Mi Pueblo founder, Juvenal Chavez, who will be named Chairman of the Board.  Ramirez is a seasoned CEO in the Hispanic food and grocery sector, with a proven track record of leading operational improvement strategies, developing strategic expansion initiatives, and accelerating growth in profitability. With nearly 20 years of experience, he will lead Mi Pueblo as it repositions its business and renews its commitment to the local Hispanic community.   “We have been a part of our communities since 1991, and thanks to the loyalty and support of our colaboradores, vendors and customers during this difficult period, we can say that today marks the beginning of a bright, new chapter for Mi Pueblo,” said Javier Ramirez, Mi Pueblo’s new CEO. “The road ahead will not be easy and we know that there is much work to be done, but we have already started to implement aggressive initiatives designed to reposition Mi Pueblo as a profitable entity and as a

strong contributor to our local Hispanic communities. We are confidently looking forward to this new stage in the company’s history and I personally am honored to join and support Mi Pueblo’s incredible team of professionals.” As part of Ramirez’s postBankruptcy plan, he will be focusing his efforts towards enhancing the company’s authentic Hispanic product offering, improving customer service levels within Mi Pueblo’s stores and ensuring Mi Pueblo’s products are sold at fair and competitive prices in the marketplace.  “We also plan to share in our future successes by reinvesting in the communities we are fortunate enough to serve,” continued Ramirez.  “In the near future, we will be introducing several new employee benefit programs for our colaboradores as well as several new initiatives focused on supporting our local communities.”

Since filing for Chapter 11 in July 2013, Mi Pueblo has sustained its business operations in Northern California by continuing to provide the community with authentic Hispanic grocery products, fresh produce and highquality meats. The company has worked closely with its vendors and creditors during this time to reach mutuallybeneficial agreements that will best position Mi Pueblo for a successful reorganization.  Mi Pueblo also received $56 million in financing from Chicago-based investment firm Victory Park Capital (VPC) as part of the financial restructuring. With deep experience investing in the consumer and retail sectors, as well as companies that serve the Hispanic marketplace, VPC will provide Mi Pueblo with the financial strength and strategic guidance required to rapidly improve its operations and navigate the competitive grocery landscape.

BUSINESS

(StatePoint) Juggling work, family, friends and hobbies can be a great challenge. After all, there are only 24 hours in a day and seven days in a week. Lis Wiehl knows all too well. As legal analyst and commentator for Fox News Channel, and host of her own weekly radio program, “Legal Lis,” Wiehl has her hands full. But instead of leaving it at those accomplishments, this single parent also writes bestselling legal thrillers in her spare time.

• Know your strengths: Taking on projects that play upon your strengths can save you time and boost your morale. For example, if you want to try your hand at writing a novel, drawing upon your own experiences can make the process easier.

• Know your goal: Before you can achieve your goals, you must identify them. If it helps to make a list, jot down what you hope to accomplish in the short-term and longterm, and post it somewhere handy.

For instance, Wiehl’s most recent novel, “A Deadly Business,” is inspired by her life as a prosecutor working on high profile cases in the Violent Crimes unit while juggling the almost impossible demands of single parenthood. • Know your weaknesses: Assess yourself honestly. For example, if you are a terrible driver or navigator, don’t take on hobbies or responsibilities that require extra time behind the wheel. • Prioritize: You can’t stop the pace of time. So instead of drowning in your to-do list, think of it this way -- what is it that you really need to get done today and what is it that you would like to do? Once you can whittle your list to the necessities, it will seem much more manageable.

los costos de la educación universitaria.

Todos los años, cuando se acerca el Día del Padre, me recuerdo a mí mismo que no cambiaría la experiencia de criar a mis dos hijos por nada en el mundo. Pero cuando recuerdo lo inocentes que fuimos alguna vez mi esposa y yo con respecto a los costos que demanda la crianza de los hijos, no puedo evitar desear haber estado mejor preparados.

Lo más conveniente es tener una cobertura de, como mínimo, 10 veces su salario anual –más aún si desea cubrir los costos universitarios. Y no se olvide de asegurar la vida de su esposa para estar protegido usted también. • Seguro por discapacidad. Millones de estadounidenses sufren discapacidades lo suficientemente graves como para perder meses o años de trabajo. Aun así, muchos pasan por alto el seguro por discapacidad, lo que puede dejarlos sin ingresos en caso de sufrir un accidente o enfermedad grave. Averigüe los beneficios de la licencia por enfermedad y discapacidad

Asegúrese de que tener la suficiente cobertura de responsabilidad como para proteger su patrimonio e ingresos –basta con un solo accidente grave para quedarse sin ahorros.

Son los educadores

quienes saben que la educación de nuestros niños debe ser completa – incluyendo música, arte, ciencias y educación técnica vocacional.

San Jose CalifORNIA In a display of public/private partnership, and a commitment to improving the quality of early education, child development and family engagement, Educare of California at Silicon Valley broke ground June 5 on California’s first Educare School, located on the campus of the Santee Elementary School and in the heart of San Jose’s Franklin-McKinley Children’s Initiative. Educare of California at Silicon Valley will serve as the region and state’s leading professional development and research institute, training early childhood education professionals in scientifically proven best practices in an effort to improve the quality of care and instruction in sites beyond the walls of the school, including K-12. The school is scheduled to open in August 2015. “The groundbreaking for this Educare represents an exciting moment of progress for all of us who care about improving the quality of children’s learning and health during their earliest years,” said Carol Larson, President and CEO of the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. “The Packard Foundation is proud of our long history in investing in children’s learning and health, and Educare’s proven approach to early education is a great example of the continued commitment to children into the future by our foundation and a wide array of partners .” The 28,000-square-foot Educare School and institute will directly serve 168 lowincome young children and

their families with a researchbased program proven to prepare children for kindergarten. To impact practice beyond the walls of the school, a signature component of Educare is its Professional Development Institute, a center that will provide highquality training to early education providers (public and private sector) and to K-8 teachers from throughout the Bay Area and northern California in the latest science and evidence-based teaching methods. The institute will partner with the region’s schools, colleges and universities to ensure that educators bring robust teaching practices back to their schools and classrooms. Through a coast-to-coast network of state-of-the-art, full-day, year-round schools, funded mostly by existing public dollars, Educare serves at-risk children from birth to five years. Each embraces a community’s most vulnerable children with programming and instructional support that develop early skills and nurture the strong parentchild relationships that create the foundation for successful learning. “Research shows that children who experience Educare’s practices arrive at school performing on par with their kindergarten peers, regardless of their socio-economic standing,” noted Dr. John Porter, Superintendent of the Franklin-McKinley School District and chairman of the local Educare board of directors. “Educare’s teacher professional development institute and robust research will allow us to bring these practices to scale in the Bay Area and to affect education policy in California. This

school truly will be a platform for raising awareness of the value and importance of early investment, particularly for California’s most at-risk children.” At Educare Schools, teachers work with children—beginning in infancy and through preschool—and their parents to develop pre-literacy and early math skills such as letter and number recognition, problem solving, and counting. Equal emphasis is given to developing socialemotional skills such as the ability to focus on a task, persistence, impulse control and cooperation with peers. Each Educare School is a comprehensive early childhood program aimed at preventing the achievement gap that takes root between children in poverty and their middleincome peers long before they enter kindergarten. Educare of California at Silicon Valley is one of 21 schools in the national Educare Learning Network, a partnership of the Ounce of Prevention Fund, the Buffett Early Childhood Fund, and partners across America. The facility will contain a 2,200-square-foot teacher professional development institute; 12 state-of-the-art classrooms, as well as multiple indoor and outdoor learning spaces to meet the developmental needs of children; a family resource center to provide training and resources for families and the greater community; and its Early Learning Career Academy, in partnership with the East Side Union High School District, to provide hands-on learning to high school students who will become our future instructional leaders.

Building A Better Relationship With Your Boss

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

JUNE 6 -12, 2014

GobiernoUSA.gov Los parques infantiles o áreas de juego en el hogar son lugares donde los niños pueden divertirse, entretenerse y de alguna manera también incrementar su desarrollo físico y social.

American Counseling Association Recent economic problems have most companies pushing harder to get maximum performance from every employee. As a result, many people find themselves facing a harsher work environment and deteriorating relationships with supervisors as performance goals become more critical. Building and maintaining positive relations with your boss will pay benefits in terms of reducing work-related stress, improving overall job satisfaction, and how you are treated (and paid) at your job. But a more positive relationship with your boss doesn’t just happen. Getting there requires you being pro-active and taking the lead in building that better relationship. Start by learning about what matters to your boss. As you learn your supervisor’s values and concerns, it becomes easier to interact with him or her as a person, rather than simply as a boss. It’s also important to understand your boss’s expectations. Are there reports or other job actions your supervisor needs to do his or her own job? Are there certain “pet peeves,” such as dress codes or timeliness, that matter a lot to him or her? Make time to talk with your supervisor and ask questions about what’s really expected of you. Communication is a vital step. That doesn’t mean always being ready to complain, but rather being open and approachable. Ask periodically, in a genuine way, how you’re doing. Make it easy for your boss to talk with you, try out new ideas, offer suggestions, and feel that his or her responsibilities can be shared with you. When there are problems, try a solution-based approach, offering ideas on how to fix things, rather than just complaining. It also helps to be flexible. When meeting times, deadlines, or job goals are changed, it’s easy to blame your boss for such problems, but it often isn’t his or her fault. Blaming the boss won’t improve a relationship. Instead, try to accept and adapt to changes, and realize that an employee who can handle the unexpected will be appreciated. Discuss the problem if the changes are really making something impossible for you. A supervisor wants to know you’re interested in more than just collecting a paycheck. Supervisors notice when there’s open communication, when criticism is accepted in a positive manner, and when an employee is actively working to build a relationship that will help you both work better. And in tough economic times, a happier boss is a very good thing.

Según la Comisión de Seguridad de Productos del Consumidor, más de dos mil niños al año se lesionan por accidentes en parques infantiles. Algunas de estas lesiones ocurren por caídas y otras por el diseño o ensamblaje de las instalaciones como columpios, toboganes, pasamanos, etc. Las siguientes recomendaciones pueden ayudar a evitar lesiones mientras su hijo se divierte en los parques públicos o en el hogar.

SACRAMENTO El Dr. Ron Chapman, director del Departamento de Salud Pública de California (CDPH) y director médico del estado, advirtió de que el número de casos de tos ferina siguen aumentando en California. Entre enero y el 27 de mayo de 2014, CDPH ha recibido informes de 2,649 casos de tos ferina, más que el número total de casos informados en el 2013. Solo en Abril se reportaron más de 800 casos, la cuenta mensual más alta desde la epidemia del 2010. “El probable que el número de casos de tos ferina continúe aumentando”, dice el Dr. Ron Chapman. “Como una medida preventiva importante, recomendamos que las mujeres embarazadas reciban un refuerzo de la vacuna contra la tos ferina durante el tercer trimestre de cada embarazo, y que vacunemos

Los bebés demasiado pequeños para ser completamente vacunados son más vulnerables a los casos graves y mortales de tos ferina. Hasta la fecha, sesenta y seis de los casos que resultaron en hospitalización han sido en bebés de cuatro meses de edad o menores. Este año se han reportaron dos muertes infantiles; una con inicio en 2013, la segunda con inicio en 2014. Ochenta y tres por ciento de los casos han sido en bebés y niños menores de 18 años de edad. De los casos pediátricos, un 8 por ciento fueron entre menores de 6 meses de edad y el 70 por ciento entre niños de 7 a 16 años de edad. Es importante que tanto los niños como los adultos estén al día con sus vacunas. Las vacunas de refuerzo contra la tos ferina son muy impor-

Para prevenir la tos ferina, CDPH recomienda que: • Las mujeres embarazadas se pongan un refuerzo de la vacuna contra la tos ferina durante el tercer trimestre de cada embarazo, incluso si se vacunaron antes. • Vacunemos a los bebés contra la tos ferina, tan pronto como sea posible. La primera dosis se recomienda a los dos meses de edad, pero se puede poner a tan solo 6 semanas de edad durante los brotes de tos ferina. Los niños necesitan cinco dosis de la vacuna contra la tos ferina antes de entrar al jardín de niños (entre los 4-6 años de edad). • Los estudiantes en California en el séptimo grado reci-

• Tenga especial cuidado al instalar trampolines, cuerdas para escalar o columpios de metal pesado, ya que estos juegos pueden causar accidentes. • Cubra la superficie del área de juego y sus alrededores con materiales comprimidos que suavicen las caídas (caucho triturado, arena, gravilla, etc.) • Coloque piezas protectoras de plástico para tornillos, clavos y otras partes de ensamblaje que pudieran cortar o causar otras lesiones. • Asegúrese de no instalar equipos de juegos con bordes filosos o puntiagudos. Revise las instalaciones con frecuencia para verificar que se encuentren en buenas condiciones y asegúrese de que siempre haya un adulto supervisando a su hijo mientras juega.

ben el refuerzo de la vacuna contra la tos ferina como es requerido por la ley estatal. • Los adultos reciben un refuerzo de la vacuna contra la tos ferina una sola vez, sobre todo si están en contacto con bebés o si son trabajadores en el campo de la salud y puedan tener contacto con los bebés o mujeres embarazadas. Los síntomas de la tos ferina varían según la edad. Para los niños, un caso típico de tos ferina comienza con una tos y secreción nasal por una a dos semanas. La tos empeora y luego los niños pueden tener ataques de tos fuertes que terminan con un silbido. Es posible que los bebés pequeños no tengan síntomas típicos de tos ferina y ni una tos aparente. Los padres pueden describir episodios en los que la cara del bebé se vuelve roja o morada. Para los adultos, la tos ferina puede ser simplemente una tos que persiste por varias semanas.

ter high school will graduate 75 students, all of whom are college bound.  Opening its doors in 2000, as the first charter school in Silicon Valley, DCP has graduated more than 500 students with a 96 percent college bound rate throughout the

decade. “Our mission is to take students who were the first in their families to go to college and achieve college success and to prepare them to be accepted to a university,” said Jennifer Andaluz, Executive Director and CoFounder of DCP.

A large portion of the student body are low-income and first generation college bound students. DCP’s class of 2014 includes 85 percent first generation college bound students along with 89 percent from low income households. In comparison to other low income students nation wide, DCP students are four times more likely to graduate from college in six years. Starting off with only one campus downtown, DCP has grown to include 2 middle schools and one high school located in Alum Rock. Andaluz credits the school’s success to the school culture and alumni support. “Our entire culture and program is focused on a single goal. Every student shares that goal. We begin to talk about college success and career success and what students aspirations are for their life from the minute they enter DCP,” said Andaluz. “There’s so much confidence and identity built around the idea that these students can achieve this really great milestone for themselves and their family.” Once students graduate they are still supported by the campus. DCP provides counseling and coaching to

alumni to help them adjust with their transition to college life. Counseling is also provided to alumni’s families so they can provide support during the transition as well. DCP Alumni also created a volunteer alumni advisory board to coach and mentor current students. The advisory board also oversees other projects like a scholarship fund and committee. Next school year, three   alumni will return to offer even more support and guidance, but this time as teachers. Luis Falcon, a 2006 alumnus will teach sixth grade social science. Falcon received his bachelor’s degree in history from University of California Santa Cruz this spring. “Coming in from a public school that was assigned to me, for me at least, it was a culture shock.” said Falcon, recalling his first visit to campus. “Coming into Downtown College Prep and seeing college banners everywhere, emphasizing that I can go to a four year university and be a the first in my family to accomplish that.” Falcon said that at his previous school, college was not presented as an option for him. Falcon immigrated from Mexico at age six from

Lagos de Moreno in the state of Jalisco. “At UC Santa Cruz I would look around and I noticed that I was one of the only students of color. That motivated me to go back to my old neighborhood. I knew that I was going to teach in the east side of San Jose and help get students, like myself, into college classrooms,” said Falcon. “I saw what teachers did for me when I was at Downtown College Prep and I want to make sure that I can do the same thing for them.” DCP’s Latino high school graduates, like Falcon, are four times more likely to attend a CSU or UC in comparison to Latino high school graduates nationwide. The tenth anniversary celebration and graduation was dedicated to the late Father Mateo Sheedy of Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish. Sheedy’s efforts helped in the formation of DCP as he lead the movement for education attainment. Sheedy’s goal was for all children, despite economic income to receive the best education possible. Downtown College Prep’s graduation ceremony and anniversary celebration began at 5:00pm at the Downtown San Jose Convention Center.

Modificación para el proyecto de protección contra inundaciones de San Francisquito Creek Prioridad E: Proporcionar protección contra inundaciones para viviendas, negocios, escuelas y carreteras. Kaira Portillo El Observador June is Gay Pride month in San Francisco, but that does not mean that the many cultural events going on all monthlong are only for the gay community. This is a chance for anyone to gain insight into not only the challenges faced by the diverse Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) community, but also their accomplishments. There are many Latino/as who struggle with coming out to their families because of how some religious and cultural traditions have negative perspectives about the LGBT community. In many cases, art is the outlet that provides healing and growth. The 2014 National Queer Arts Festival showcases film, dance, visual art, and much more. As part of this festival, ‘Still Here’ is a literary arts event that re-imagines, re-invents, and re-examines San Francisco’s queer history. The artist line-up includes a handful of Latino/as who will be sharing autobiographical stories about what it was like to be born & raised in the so-called “gay mecca” during the 1980s and 1990s, with the AIDS epidemic as a backdrop to their childhoods. ‘Still Here’ exposes the complex intersections of ethnicity, sexuality, gender and class. Curated by Chicana-Pilipina Cristina Mitra and Chicana Natalia Vigil, (both of whom will also be performing in the show), proudly offer this show to the collective fight for visibility and a right to a home in SF for poor/working class people of color.

La audiencia pública sobre la modificación del proyecto de protección contra inundaciones de San Francisquito Creek

Cuándo: 10 de junio de 2014 en 6:00 p.m. Dónde:

La sede del distrito — Sala de conferencias 5700 Almaden Expressway, San Jose, CA 95118

Debido al nivel de financiamiento externo disponible, el personal recomienda modificar el documento del programa para asesorar al público sobre el nivel de protección contra inundaciones que puede realizarse en este momento. Según se indica en la descripción del proyecto modificado, el proyecto únicamente financiado en el estado será el mismo que el proyecto preferido en dirección descendente de Highway 101; pero en dirección ascendente de Highway 101, el proyecto arreglará las constricciones del canal y modificará puentes en Newell Road y en Pope/Chaucer Street para permitir que el canal soporte las inundaciones igual que la capacidad del canal de 7,000 pies cúbicos por segundo (cfs), aproximadamente un evento de inundación de 30 años. Al permitir que este nivel de agua fluya a través del canal protegerá aproximadamente 3,000 paquetes en Palo Alto de un evento de inundación cerca de la inundación de febrero de 1998, la mayor inundación registrada. Actualmente, el canal sólo puede soportar un evento de inundación de 15 años. Si existen fondos suficientes disponibles, un 1% (100-año) del proyecto de protección contra la inundación en dirección ascendente de 101 Highway, incluyendo una combinación de: modificaciones a University Avenue y los puentes de Middlefield Road; detención en dirección ascendente; canales de desvío fluvial subterráneo; y muros se podría construir contra inundaciones.

San Francisquito Creek, evento de la década de 1950 inundación

Modificaciones propuestas para el desempeño clave de los indicadores: 1. Proyecto recomendado con fondos federales, estatales y locales: Protege a más de 3,000 paquetes al proporcionar protección contra la inundación en un 1%. 2. Con financiamiento estatales y locales, únicamente: Protege aproximadamente 3,000 paquetes contra las inundaciones repentinas (100 años protección en dirección descendente de la Highway 101) y aproximadamente de 30 años en dirección ascendente de 101 Highway.

Driverless -- or “autonomous” -- cars may be commonplace by 2020, some analysts say, and are touted by proponents as  more sustainable than their driven counterparts. But convenience factors could tip the scales the other way and mean more and larger vehicles on the road. Pictured: Google’s prototype driverless car, a converted Prius, undergoing testing.

be common by 2020, and account for the majority of cars on the road by 2040. And with Google’s recent unveiling of its latest prototype— complete with no pedals or steering wheel—the future is indeed closer than we ever imagined. Proponents argue that driverless cars—also called “autonomous cars”—are inherently more sustainable than their manned counterparts. For one, they say, once they are widely available many of us will forego owning our own cars in favor of carsharing, whereby the autonomous vehicle comes to you, charged and ready to go, as needed. Thus the result could be far fewer cars on the road than today. According to Steve Gutmann of the Seattle-based sustainability think tank Sightline Institute, such a car-sharing scenario would also obviate the need for many parking spaces. Today the typical private car spends upwards of 90 percent of its time parked. Once we have more driverless cars, we’ll need far fewer parking spaces, leading to less land being paved and reducing storm water runoff and heat island effects accordingly. The networked brains of these vehicles will also re-

duce inefficient routes and decrease overall driving time, leading to better air quality and lower carbon emissions. Also, the increased safety of driverless vehicles—they obey speed limits, can sense people, bikes and other cars coming toward them, and accelerate and brake much more gradually than human drivers—will mean that the cars can be lighter and require far fewer resources in manufacturing, reducing their overall environmental impact even further. On the flip side, the advent of driverless cars means that many of us now not able to drive because of age or physical handicaps will be able to use these cars to get around, potentially leading to an increase in the number of cars on the road. And Chandra Bhat of the Center for Transportation Research at the University of Texas points out, that just because a car is driverless doesn’t mean we’ll want it to be smaller, lighter and more fuel efficient. He fears that driverless cars will engender a return to larger vehicles, because people will want “more comfortable space” when they are free to stretch out, relax, read, videochat, text or even nap during their trips. He adds that driverless cars could lead to more

urban sprawl as car commuting becomes more tolerable without the hassle of actually driving. Bhat also wonders what will become of the public transit systems we’ve invested so heavily in if driverless cars offer the same advantages— using the time en route to do whatever one pleases—with the added benefit of privacy and route/timing flexibility. Today, four U.S. states—Nevada, Florida, California and Michigan—allow driverless cars on their public roads for the purpose of testing; several other states are considering similar allowances. Likewise, in 2013 the United Kingdom began allowing the testing of driverless cars on its public roadways. Besides Google, several leading automakers and other companies have developed their own prototypes. Car enthusiasts can expect to see such examples from the likes of MercedesBenz, General Motors, Nissan, Toyota, Audi, Volvo, Tesla and others at auto shows over the next few years, and can look forward to getting “behind the wheel” of one within a decade. Whatever happens, it certainly is going to be quite a ride.

June 30th with “The Taming of the Shrew”

Monica Amador El Observador For many, the search for Civic perfection begins and ends with the 2014 Honda Civic sedan, with Navigation offered only on EX-L trims for this year. New technology features include available 7-inch touch screen infotainment system, that functions similarly to a Smartphone with next generation HondaLink connectivity, that can help you access news, social media personalized restaurant searches and more.    A lane departure warning system with blind spot monitoring is also a new safety tech offered on the Civic this year. Every civic is equipped with a single-angle rearview camera, while navigation-equipped models offer three camera angles to choose from wide, normal and overhead view of the rear bumper.    The continuously variable automatic transmission offers greater fuel efficiency as well as improved performance over the outgoing auto trans and is optional on gas pow-

ered coupe and sedans.  This dynamic Honda Civic was fun to drive. Now I see why this car is so popular.  The 1.8 liter, single overhead camshaft, aluminum-alloy i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine uses stateof-the-art engineering technology to produce an impressive 143 hp (SAE net), yet it still receives excellent fuelefficiency ratings and a partial

zero-emission vehicle rating all on regular gasoline.  Honda’s new Earth Dreams continuously variable transmission CVT provides an outstanding driving experience.   The pick up is great and the EPA gas mileage:  22 City/31 Highway/combined 32.  MSRP starts at $24,040.

El próximo año se proyecta montar en Broadway la obra musical “Mentiras”, lo que representaría el primer paso para contar con una presencia constante de producciones de México en el mayor escaparate mundial del teatro de entretenimiento, afirmó el productor Morris Gilbert.

Con invitados especiales como Carla Morrison y la Mala rodríguez, la agrupación mexicana Kinky grabó la noche de este martes su concierto MTV Unplugged, en el que dejó a un lado el rock, para satisfacer con su música en versión acústica.

“Sería un parteaguas. Es un sueño que estamos buscando. Si hemos llevado todos los musicales de nueva York a México, ¿por qué ahora no traer musicales de México a nueva York? Debe ser tan difícil o tan sencillo como hacerlo de la ora manera, aseguró Gilbert, director del área de teatro de ocesa. En entrevista con notimex luego de participar en un panel organizado por la Cámara de Comercio México-Estados

Unidos, el productor afirmó que el éxito de Mentiras en territorio mexicano, así como en sus versiones en Colombia y Perú, permite suponer que la obra tiene potencial internacional. Tenemos la intención de traerla no sólo a nueva York, sino a todos los mercados latinos en Estados Unidos, incluyendo Miami y Chicago. El enorme éxito que ha tenido en México, con más de mil 900 representaciones, nos hace

tener fe en el potencial que tiene en el resto del mundo, aseguró. Creemos que este es un musical que se puede exportar tanto a Estados Unidos como al resto del mundo como el gran musical mexicano. o sea, tenemos planes ambiciosos pero, ¿por qué no ambicionar en esta vida?, aseveró. la experiencia de ocesa en el mercado de nueva York comenzó apenas el mes pasado.

luego de la breve presentación que dio el actor Diego luna al espectáculo, apareció el grupo conformado por Gilberto Cerezo (vocalista), Carlos Chairez (guitarra), César Pliego (bajo), Ulises lozano (teclados) y omar Góngora (batería). Kinky interpretó 14 melodías, entre las que se encontraron “Sound tha mi primer amor”, “Huracán”, “Sin palabras”, “línea de luz” e “ilegal”; algunos éxitos fueron acompañados por un ensamble

musical de más de 20 músicos. “Buenas noches, siento mariposas todavía en el estómago, hace mucho que no las sentía, gracias por acompañarnos”, expresó Gil antes de darle la bienvenida a sus primeros colegas, los integrantes de la agrupación Voz de Mando, junto con Beto Zapata, del grupo Pesado. Minutos después esta fiesta, que se llevó a cabo en una lo-

cación dentro de los Estudios Churubusco, continuó con “Después del after”, “Soy lo peor” y “negro día”, éste con la cantante española la Mala rodríguez. Después de los éxitos “Para que regreses”, “Hasta quemarnos” y “Vuelve”, Kinky puso la cereza al pastel con la mezcla de los temas “ando bien pedo” y “noche de toxinas”, que cantaron junto con Banda los recoditos.

The epic action of “Edge of Tomorrow” unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Major William Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.

(Notimex) A unos días de obtener el cinturón de peso supermosca del Consejo Mundial de Boxeo, el mexicano Carlos Cuadras contempla exposiciones contra su compatriota Edgar Sosa o el argentino Omar Narváez. Con el cinturón verde y oro en su cintura y aún con las huellas de su contienda en el rostro, el flamante monarca sinaloense visita Notimex y habla de su complicado combate ante el tailandés Srisaket Sor Rungvisai. “Se cumplió mi sueño de ser campeón del mundo, mi meta, mi objetivo desde que me inicié en el boxeo y ahora

seré uno de los mejores monarcas de la historia”, comentó el peleador originario de Guamúchil, Sinaloa y radicado en el municipio de Tultitlán, Estado de México. Los rizos que caen sobre su frente cubren la cortada en la ceja izquierda producto de un cabezazo del tailandés y que le impidió seguir en la pelea y al estar arriba en las tarjetas le dieron el triunfo por decisión técnica sobre el asiático, arrebatándole así el preciado cinturón. Recordó que la pelea contra Rungvisai, “fue muy dura desde el principio, el asiático es un fajador nato, hice una pelea de rapidez sobre piernas, lo pude boxear conectando

con solidez para ir ganando rounds y al fin ganar “el título”, dijo.“Me sentí bien, seguro de ganar la pelea, fueron muchos cabezazos, pero la pelea correspondió a la expectativa de la gente que llenó la Sala de Armas de la Ciudad Deportiva, les agradezco su apoyo”, comentó. Para Carlos Cuadras ahora la responsabilidad será mayor, “como campeón mi meta es defenderlo muchas veces y después subir a peso gallo. Tengo un año de peleas opcionales y me gustaría exponerlo contra Omar Narváez, quien tiene muchos años de monarca en otro organismo y contra Edgar Sosa, un peleador muy fuerte”. Espera un reconocimiento del gobernador de

El defensa Andrés Guardado es sincero y su voz no tembló al afirmar que la selección de México necesita mejorar mucho en todos los aspectos para poder trascender en la Copa del Mundo Brasil 2014. “Tenemos que mejorar muchas cosas si queremos hacer un buen Mundial, eso está claro, nadie lo esconde y para eso están este tipo de partidos, para aprender y creo que hoy vamos a aprender muchas cosas”, dijo.

Sinaloa, Mario López Valdez, “ser campeón del Consejo Mundial de Boxeo me obliga a no bajar la guardia, a subir de nivel y lo voy hacer con dedicación al gimnasio”. Carlos Cuadras, a sus 25 años de edad, representa la sangre nueva del boxeo mexicano, “me da gusto estar en el selecto grupo de campeones mundiales”. Para finalizar la entrevista, tiene una dedicación especial, “este cinturón es para Don José Sulaimán, por todo el apoyo que dio a mi carrera y que lamentablemente ya no vio como me coroné campeón del mundo del organismo que presidió muchos años”.

Explicó que la derrota que sufrieron la noche del miércoles ante Bosnia-Herzegovina fue muy provechosa porque se dieron cuenta de sus carencias. “Se perdió un partido de preparación, no ha pasado nada, hay veces que se rescatan más cosas cuando pierdes que cuando ganas”, apuntó.
