Headlines Contralor Pública Reporte Mensual de Finanzas Para California / El Contralor del Estado John Chiang emitió hoy su informe mensual del saldo en efectivo, facturas y desembolsos de California para mayo de 2014. El ingreso total generado en dicho mes fue de $6.7 mil millones, las cuales no alcanzaron las estimaciones del presupuesto del Gobernador por $389.1 millones, ó 5.5 por ciento. Hasta la fecha,  los ingresos aún exceden las expectativas por $1.8 mil millones, ó 2.1 por ciento. Una encuesta nacional identifica posibles obstáculos para el tratamiento contra el VIH en los EE. UU. / ViiV Healthcare anunció hoy nuevos datos de una encuesta que proporciona importantes detalles que pueden ayudar a explicar el motivo por el cual los índices de tratamiento para el VIH son tan bajos en los Estados Unidos. Los resultados de la encuesta en línea, realizada por Harris Interactive en nombre de ViiV Healthcare en 2013, revelan una brecha en el conocimiento sobre el VIH y su tratamiento entre personas con VIH diagnosticadas pero no tratadas, así también como percepciones erróneas sobre un medicamento recetado para el VIH y menos percepciones positivas sobre el bienestar general en comparación con personas con VIH que tratan su enfermedad. Reentry Housing Assistance Helps Those Released Under Prop 36 –Three Strikes Law Reform / In a bold move to address a significant obstacle to successful reentry into the community, the County of Santa Clara established a Rental Assistance Program for qualified applicants who have been released from prison as a result of voter approved Proposition 36.  The program is underway and housing assistance is now being provided for 29 qualified applicants. Proposition 36 was approved by California voters in November 2012 to restore the original intent of the Three Strikes law.  It requires that life sentences be imposed only for serious or violent crimes.   City Budget for Fiscal Year 2014-2015 / After a decade of deficits that forced cuts in services throughout the city, the City Council implemented a comprehensive fiscal reform plan that has allowed the City to maintain service levels over the past two years.The proposed FY 2014-15 budget continues the city’s recent progress to slowly improve city services, with an emphasis on public safety. This includes: adding a 3rd police academy to accelerate the recruitment and training of new officers, hiring another 7 Community Service Officers (CSOs,increasing funding for gang prevention, intervention and suppression efforts, allocating $48 million in one-time funds for pavement maintenance.

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR On Friday, May 30, 2014, the monthly meeting of La Raza Roundtable included a presentation by San Jose’s Independent Police Auditor (IPA), Judge LaDoris H. Cordell (Ret.). The Judge announced that her 2013 IPA Year End Report was presented to Mayor Reed and the City Council in April of 2014.  (The report is currently available online at www.sanjoseca.gov/ ipa.)  In addition to announcing the report, Judge Cordell presented the first episode of a 30-minute video program entitled “Make the Call, San José!”  The show is a collaboration between the IPA, the San José Police Department (SJPD) and CreaTV.  Each episode focuses on unsolved homicides in San José and features interviews with the victims’ family members.  Viewers are encouraged to report all information related to the

EL OBSERVADOR La Juez Doris H. Cordell, presentó recientemente un programa de video de 30 minutos titulado “Haz la llamada, San José!” El programa es una colaboración entre el auditor policial independiente (IPA por sus siglas en inglés), el Departamento de Policía de San José (SJPD) y CreaTV. Cada episodio se basa en homicidios que no han sido resueltos en San José y cuenta con entrevistas a los familiares de las víctimas. Los espectadores de los crímenes deberían reportar toda la información relacionada con los asesinatos. Para algunos crímenes, una recompensa de 10.000 dólares ya está disponible para las pistas que lleven al arresto y condena de los culpables. Después del video, la Juez Cordell subrayó la necesidad

unsolved murders.  For some crimes, a $10,000 reward is now available for tips leading to the arrest and conviction of the guilty parties.  Attendees at the La Raza Roundtable meeting listened attentively to the video program as the mother and sister of 17-year old Anthony Santa Cruz discussed his murder.  He was stabbed to death near San Jose High in February 2013 while approximately 47 students were leaving the school.  Next, the video program covered the shooting death of 20-year old Justin Watkins who was gunned down near Oak Grove High School in May of 2013.  Mr. Watkins was murdered just a few weeks before his 21st birthday. It is inconceivable that these two unrelated murders went unseen and yet, to date, no one has provided information to the police.  Not a single witness has come forward.

que los testigos hablen con la policía (o Crime Stoppers si desean permanecer anónimos) y den cualquier información que posean. “Ningún criminal debería salirse con la suya”, dijo la Juez. Los casos no resueltos que se describen en “hacer la llamada, San José!” son más comunes de lo que uno podría imaginar. Hoy, Gustavo Landeros es un funcionario bancario, pero, una vez fue un estudiante de la universidad local y distribuía El Observador. El pasado día de Nochebuena, su hermano fue fatalmente herido en un accidente automovilístico cerca del Centro Médico del Valle. El conductor huyó y este caso de “golpear y correr” sigue sin resolverse. Aunque el incidente ocurrió en una calle bien iluminada y probablemente fue visto por varias personas, no se han identifi-

After the video program, Judge Cordell stressed the need for witnesses to tell police (or CrimeStoppers if they wish to remain anonymous) whatever bits of information they possess.  “No one should get away with murder,” stated the Judge.    Following Judge Cordell’s comments, Anthony Santa Cruz’ mother made a personal plea to the audience.  She said, “As long as my son’s stabbing case is not solved, justice is denied to me, his brothers and sisters, his father and this community. I want all of you to consider that because it does not allow my family to have closure on the stabbing death of my son Anthony. He was a good son. We love him and still miss his presence in our family one year later.”  The unsolved cases described in “Make the Call, San José!” are more common than one might imagine.  Today, Gus-

tavo Landeros is a banking official but, once upon a time, he was a local college student working part-time distributing El Observador.  This past Christmas Eve, his brother was fatally injured in a car accident near the Valley Medical Center. The driver fled and this “hit & run” case remains unsolved.  Although the incident occurred on a well illuminated street and was likely seen by several people, no eye witnesses have been identified. Still grieving, Mr. Landeros and his family wonder why witnesses have failed to come forward with information.    As long as cases such as these remain unsolved, justice is lacking in our community. The families of the victims are denied closure.  Witnesses must do their civic duty and report what they know.  Otherwise, unidentified killers do “get away with murder” in a City that prides itself on being

cado a los testigos. Aún así en duelo, Landeros y su familia se preguntan por qué los testigos no han podido presentar información.

retención de información útil para las autoridades deja a las familias involucradas con duelos no resueltos por el resto de sus vidas.

Mientras estos casos siguen sin resolverse, la justicia está ausente en nuestra comunidad. Las familias de las víctimas se les niega el cierre. Los testigos deben cumplir con su deber cívico y reportar lo que saben. De lo contrario, los asesinos no identificados se “salen con la suya”, en una ciudad que se enorgullece de ser unas de las más seguras entre las grandes ciudades de la nación.

El Departamento de Policía de San José y el fiscal de distrito tienen una lista de asesinatos que están sin resolverse. Ese número es demasiado grande como para ignorar o dejar de discutir. Tal vez es por eso que se han unido para ofrecer una recompensa de $10.000 en algunos casos para cualquier información que lleve al arresto y condena de los culpables.

Los jóvenes y otros a veces se niegan a revelar cualquier información, ya que no quieren ser etiquetados como “soplones” o “ratas”. La aplicación de ese pensamiento a estos incidentes no sólo es criminal, es despiadada. La

. among the safest large cities in the nation.   Young people and others sometimes refuse to reveal any information because they do not want to be labeled “snitches” or “rats.”  Applying that thinking to these incidents is not only criminal, it is heartless.  Withholding useful information from the authorities leaves the involved families sitting with unresolved grief for the rest of their lives. The San Jose Police Department (SJPD) and the District Attorney currently have a list of about 28 killings that are unsolved. That number is just too large to ignore or refrain from discussing.  Perhaps that is why they have joined forces to offer a $10,000 reward in some cases for tips leading to the arrest and conviction of the guilty parties.   At the La Raza Roundtable meeting, Police Chief Larry

OPINION

Esquivel made a commitment to do what is possible to resolve the unsolved murders.  Chief Esquivel stated that, despite limited staffing levels, the SJPD treats felonies as high priority matters. To resolve cases, however, the police need pertinent information -- particularly regarding the events that preceded each crime.    WHAT CAN I DO? 1) Go to Google, 2) type in “Make the Call, San Jose YouTube,” and 3) scroll down to watch the videos on YouTube. The program also airs at 7 PM on Friday nights on CreaTV Channel 30.   NO ONE SHOULD GET AWAR WITH MURDER! Leave your tip for the SJPD Homicide Unit at 408-2775283 or, if you wish to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 408-947-7867.  MAKE THE CALL TODAY.

FRIENDS OF JOHN VASCONCELLOS John Vasconcellos died Saturday, May 24, at home surrounded by his close family and friends. He was 82. Known throughout California, and indeed the country, for his political skills and vision, he was at once a very private man, a devoted friend and mentor, and an exceptionally talented craftsman of public policy innovations in education, public safety, state budgets, health and human services.

GOBIERNOUSA.GOV Los padres fundadores de la nación son conocidos como grandes líderes políticos y promotores de la libertad. En anticipación del Día del Padre rendimos homenaje a esos líderes que lucharon por la independencia de Estados Unidos y establecieron la constitución de la república.

George Washington Nació en el condado de Westmoreland, Virginia el 22 de febrero de  1732. Durante su infancia y juventud aprendió las buenas costumbres  y desarrolló los valores morales típicos del siglo XVIII. Se interesó en las artes militares y la política. En 1775 el Congreso Continental lo designó Comandante en Jefe del Ejército Continental. Posteriormente tomó el mando de sus tropas para participar en la Guerra de la Independencia. El 30 de abril de 1789 se convirtió en

el primer presidente de Estados Unidos.

John Adams Nació el 30 de octubre de 1735 en Braintree, Massachusetts. Estudió leyes y se identificó desde muy temprano con la causa patriótica. Años más tarde lideró el movimiento para declarar la Independencia. Fue un reconocido diplomático y delegado de Estados Unidos en el Tratado de París de 1783, el cual le dio fin a la Guerra de la Independencia. Fue dos veces vicepresidente de Estados Unidos y en 1797 fue juramentado como segundo presidente de la nación.

Thomas Jefferson Personaje defensor de la libertad, nació en Shadwell, Virginia el 13 de abril de 1743. A los 33 años colaboró en la redacción de la Declaración de Independencia y trabajó por mucho tiempo a

favor de esta causa. Jefferson fue embajador de Estados Unidos en Francia durante cuatro años. A su regreso desempeñó cargos como secretario de estado y vicepresidente de la nación. En 1801 llegó a ser el tercer presidente de Estados Unidos.

Benjamin Franklin Nació en Boston, Massachusetts el 17 de enero de 1706 y fue un reconocido político, científico e inventor. Sus inventos más destacados incluyen el pararrayos, el horno de Franklin y los lentes bifocales. En 1736 fue elegido miembro de la Asamblea General de Pensilvania, en donde se inició como político. Años después ayudó a Jefferson y Adams con la redacción de la Declaración de Independencia. En 1787 ayudó a redactar la Constitución de Estados Unidos y posteriormente participó en el proceso de abolición de la esclavitud.

John served 38 years in the California legislature, was Chairman of the Assembly Ways and Means Committee for twelve years, oversaw two revisions of California’s Master Plan for higher education, authored groundbreaking legislation in AIDS research, medical marijuana, family health, atmospheredamaging chemicals, and legislative ethics. While he was best known, and often lampooned, for his work to bring Self-Esteem into public policy, his body of legislative work was considerably more complex and broad-ranging, and was always characterized by an attention to those most in need. John was born on May 11,1932 in Santa Clara, and remained devoted to the south bay region his entire life. He graduated from Bellarmine Preparatory High School and attended Santa Clara University, graduating magna cum laude and valedictorian of his class. After two years in the United States Army, John came back to Santa Clara for law school, again graduating at the top of his class. After a brief period practicing law he served as Governor Pat Brown’s trav-

eling secretary, encouraged by classmates and faculty at Santa Clara to seek a life of public service. These same friends persuaded him to run for the state Assembly (indeed, they entered his name in the race before telling him). He was first elected to the Assembly in 1966. His body of public work suffered caricature when he insisted on creating the Commission on Self-Esteem and Personal Responsibility, and was parodied by Gary Trudeau in Doonesbury. John loved the parody, knowing that Trudeau had accomplished what few legislatures could: broad public awareness of the concept of SelfEsteem even while laughing. He reached out to Trudeau, thanking him for the notice, and Trudeau in turn sent John the original drawings of the parody, which John then put proudly on his office wall. For those who knew and loved Vasconcellos, his public life was always characterized by a particular dualism: on the one hand, his deeply personal search for self-awareness and authenticity; on the other hand his commitment to the wonky work of old-fashioned politics, where deals are made and policy is brokered. His bravery in combining these two elements of his life was evident to everyone who worked with him: open about his own inner torments and confusions, and at the same time searching for ways the government could ease the torments of the society. John was also, and surprisingly to many, an intensely private man who had a rich inner life of reflection and feeling, animated by books and films and music. He

loved Dave Brubeck, Isabel Allende, and the art of obscure painters he would discover on vacation. He loved Hawaii~his father had migrated from Maui—and John returned to Maui often. Once retired, it was hard to get John to dress in anything other than Hawaiian shirts and garish shorts. John is survived by: his sister Margaret Brindle and brother Jim Vasconcellos, niece Beth Brindle and a network of nieces, nephews and cousins. John never married, but formed an exceptionally close bond with an adoptive family, the Saunders, Mitch, Cindy, Megan, and Briana. He also had a devoted community of friends whom he kept in his heart and life in a remarkably consistent and deep way. The news of John’s death has reverberated through his community with a sudden shock, as it is hard to imagine a world in which he is not emailing us, on the phone, coming to graduations and birthdays and picnics and parties with books to leave behind and stories to tell. A man of uncommon public capacity, who served his state in a thousand ways with great distinction, John will always be remembered for both his public work and his wide and rich friendships. Memorial services will be June 21st at 9:00am at the Mission Church at Santa Clara University. John requested that in lieu of flowers or other gestures in honor of him, that donations be made to the De Anza College Institute for Community and Civic Engagement,care of the Foothill De Anza Community College Foundation.

LOS ANGELES The Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF), the nation’s largest not-for-profit organization supporting Hispanic American higher education, will bring the Youth Leadership Institute (YLI), a threeday overnight college empowerment conference, to five cities across the U.S this summer. The top 100 Latino high school junior applicants in each region have been selected to participate in this year’s series. The program is designed to give these students the practical tools they need to successfully apply to top universities, have full access to financial aid and scholarship opportunities, and excel in school and beyond. Selected students will experience what it’s like to live on a college campus, participate in college and career workshops, interact with college students and various professionals who serve as mentors, and develop the skills to become leaders in their communities. “We are thrilled for the support of our Ground Breaking Partner, Wells Fargo, in sponsoring this new summer pro-

competitions.During 2013, he participated in a series of competitions leading up to the Best Warrior Competition, winning along the way: 351st Civil Affairs Command Non-Commissioned Officer of the Year and the United States Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command NonCommissioned Officer of the Year, both in April of that year. In June 2013, he won the United States Army Reserve Command Non-Commissioned Officer of the Year.

gram,” said Fidel A. Vargas, President & CEO, Hispanic Scholarship Fund. “The outstanding students selected will be exposed to empowering experiences that will nurture their flourishing leadership skills, so that they will go on to become great leaders in their communities and in our nation.” “Wells Fargo has a long tradition of supporting education-related causes and making higher education available to those who might not otherwise have the financial means to make that dream a possibility,” said Tim Hanlon, President of Wells Fargo Foundation and Executive Vice President of Wells Fargo. “I am particularly proud of our partnership with the Hispanic Scholarship Fund because it gives us the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of so many young people.”

Fremont CALIFORNIA It’s not easy being a soldier and student at Ohlone College, but Sergeant First Class Jason Manella has done so through hard work, dedication and a focus on achieving excellence, as he has done with so many other accomplishments in his life. For the past eight years, Sergeant Manella has alternated between classes, his monthly duties as a reservist and two tours of duty in Iraq and one in Afghanistan as part of his service responsibilities. He surmounted a traumatic injury, a result of combat, which required hospitalization and therapy; and amassed a considerable number of awards and medals along the way. This semester, his final at Ohlone, his GPA is a stunning 3.9.

YLI will be kicking off this summer in Los Angeles, CA, Dallas, TX, Albuquerque, NM, Washington, DC, and Silicon Valley, CA.  For more information about the Hispanic Scholarship Fund and While enrolled at Ohlone, the YLI Program please visit: he was deployed with Bravo HSF.net Company, 455th Civil Affairs

In 2013, he survived explosions of numerous homemade bombs while working throughout southern Afghanistan as an Army Reserve Civil Affairs Specialist, building bridges with the local population. It was discovered that he had undergone traumatic brain injury when he began to experience dizziness, worsening headaches, and memory lapses. Sergeant Manella underwent therapy for his injuries, eventually combining the therapy with training for the Department of the Army Best Warrior

Then in November 2013, he participated in, and won, the United States Army Reserve Command Non-Commissioned Officer of the Year title during the Army’s Best Warrior Competition, making him the first Army Reservist to win the Army-wide title. Sergeant Manella also holds a Bronze Star Medal, Purple Heart Medal, Meritorious Service Medal, Army Commendation Medal, and Campaign Medals from both Afghan and Iraq, and several more. In addition, he carries a Combat Action Badge, Parachutist Badge, Expert Marksman Badge, and Rifle Badge. In recognition of his scholarly achievements and service to his country, Sergeant Manella was honored at

the Ohlone College Board of Trustees Meeting. At that time, he was presented two resolutions from the City of Fremont and the Alameda County Board of Supervisors. “I believe a place like Ohlone Community College is a great place to help foster a student’s dreams, get them on track, help them pursue their goals and guide them along their way,” he said of his educational career at Ohlone. “I’m incredibly thankful to be a product of this college, and I will always cherish the education, the mentorship and memories I have from being here.” He credits Ohlone College for providing him the support that got him through the difficulties of being called away for duties many semesters in a row and having to pick up where he left off upon his return. In particular, he thanked the counselors in the Veteran’s Affair Office who helped him with his GI Bill benefits and registration, and instructors who took many office hours to help him catch up on work he missed while serving his reserve time. Sergeant Manella was a product of Washington High in Fremont where he entered the United States Army Reserve in 2003.

BUSINESS

Most people stop thinking about taxes after they file their tax return. But there’s no better time to start tax planning than right now. And it’s never too early to set up a smart recordkeeping system. Here are six IRS tips to help you start to plan for this year’s taxes:   • Take action when life changes occur.  Some life events, like a change in marital status, the birth of a child or buying a home, can change the amount of taxes you owe. When such events occur during the year, you may need to change the amount of tax taken out of your pay. To do that, you must file a new Form W-4, Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate, with your employer. Use the IRS Withholding Calculator on IRS.gov to help you fill out the form. If you receive advance payments of the premium tax credit it is important that you report changes in cir-

cumstances, such as changes in your income or family size, to your Health Insurance Marketplace. • Keep records safe.  Put your 2013 tax return and supporting records in a safe place. That way if you ever need to refer to your return, you’ll know where to find it. For example, you may need a copy of your return if you apply for a home loan or financial aid. You can also use it as a guide when you do next year’s tax return. • Stay organized.  Make sure your family puts tax records in the same place during the year. This will avoid a search for misplaced records come tax time next year. • Shop for a tax preparer.  If you want to hire a tax preparer to help you with tax planning, start your search now. Choose a tax preparer wisely. You are responsible for the accuracy of

your tax return no matter who prepares it. Find tips for choosing a preparer at IRS.gov. • Think about itemizing.  If you usually claim a standard deduction on your tax return, you may be able to lower your taxes if you itemize deductions instead. A donation to charity could mean some tax savings. See the instructions for Schedule A, Itemized Deductions, for a list of deductions. • Keep up with changes.  Subscribe to IRS Tax Tips to get emails about tax law changes, how to save money and much more. You can also get Tips on IRS.gov or IRS2Go, the IRS’s mobile app. The IRS issues tips each weekday in the tax filing season and three days a week in summer.   Remember, a little planning now can pay off big at tax time next year.  

Jason Alderman PRACTICAL MONEY A los casi 1,6 millones de graduados universitarios de la clase 2014: Mis más sinceras felicitaciones –y condolencias. Me gradué a principios de la recesión de 1990, cuando encontrar un trabajo decente era muy difícil, y por eso conozco bastante bien las dificultades que muchos de ustedes estarán atravesando. Si bien la tecnología de búsqueda laboral ha cambiado considerablemente desde entonces, estando ahora del otro lado del escritorio y teniendo que seleccionar candidatos, puedo decirles que muchos de los principios básicos de las búsquedas laborales exitosas siguen siendo los mismos. Déjenme compartir algunos:

Sobresalir del rebaño. Seguramente competirán con decenas, si no cientos, de otros postulantes en la mayoría de los trabajos. Por eso:

• Diseñen

sus CV y cartas de presentación de manera de resaltar la educación, capacidades y experiencias relevantes al puesto de trabajo –consulten el Centro de CV de Monster.com para ver algunos consejos de redacción. • Si no tienen demasiada experiencia laboral, enfaticen sus logros educativos, los trabajos voluntarios o becados, los premios, las membrecías, etc. • Tengan buenas referencias –y asegúrense de que estén dispuestas a hablar o escribir una carta de recomendación para ustedes. • Relean todo cuidadosamente y pídanle a alguien de confianza que revise su CV.

Antes de postularse, investiguen a la compañía para asegurarse de que sea conveniente. Si los

llaman para una entrevista, investiguen un poco más aún:

• Asegúrense de entender bien qué productos o servicios ofrece la compañía y qué base de clientes tiene. • Examinen su estructura comercial y cómo encajaría su potencial departamento. • Investiguen quién es su competencia para entender el entorno comercial en el que opera. • Investiguen su presencia en los medios sociales para ver cómo interactúa con los clientes. Los empleadores deben hacer cada vez más con menos recursos, por lo que buscan empleados enfocados, preparados y dispuestos a trabajar mucho. He hablado con varios gerentes de contrataciones y coinciden en que muchos de los candidatos no reúnen estas cualidades. Algunos consejos:

• Búsquense a sí mismos en Google. Revisen su huella en los medios sociales y retiren las fotos u otro material que los hagan ver poco profesionales. • Preséntense a las entrevistas a la hora indicada, vestidos correctamente, con copias de sus CV, muestras de trabajo y los materiales requeridos. • Estén preparados para responder miles de preguntas personales y sobre cómo reaccionarían en diferentes situaciones. (Monster tiene una buena lista de posibles preguntas de entrevistas laborales). • Asegúrense de poder respaldar todo lo que esté escrito en el CV o lo dicho durante las entrevistas. Regístrense en motores de búsqueda laboral donde puedan postularse para trabajos

y hagan que los potenciales empleadores y selectores de personal los vean. Algunos de los sitios más conocidos son Monster.com, Careerbuilder. com. LinkedIn, AfterCollege. com y LinkUp.com.

Conseguir un buen trabajo puede llevar meses o incluso años. Por eso, sean persistentes y agoten todos los recursos disponibles. Por ejemplo:

• Contáctense con la oficina de recursos profesionales de su universidad para ver qué servicios puede ofrecerles como recién graduados. En muchos casos ofrecen ayuda revisando los CV, practicando entrevistas y conectando a los graduados con ex alumnos voluntarios que desean encontrarse para hacer entrevistas informales. • Créense un perfil en LinkedIn. Muchos empleadores y selectores de personal recurren primero a este sitio para buscar candidatos. Además, únanse a los grupos de LinkedIn que correspondan a sus áreas de interés y participen de sus charlas. • Contáctense y únanse a organizaciones profesionales de sus áreas. Weddles.com tiene links a miles de organizaciones profesionales. • Muchas compañías usan sistemas de rastreo automático para buscar en los CV palabras claves relacionadas con capacidades específicas del trabajo en cuestión antes de que el CV llegue a manos humanas. Asegúrense de que sus CV contengan estas palabras clave, siempre que su experiencia sea relevante, por supuesto. En resumen: Han trabajado mucho para conseguir ese título. Desgraciadamente, tendrán que trabajar igual de duro para salir adelante en sus carreras. Por eso, aprovechen las herramientas de que disponen y buena suerte.

JUNE 13-19, 2014

Washington DC  This year marks 20 years since National Men’s Health Week (NMHW) was passed by Congress and signed by President William Jefferson Clinton.  Recognizing that many health problems that affect men can be prevented, the week was designed to encourage men, boys and their families to develop positive health attitudes, engage in preventive behaviors, lead healthy lifestyles, and seek timely medical advice and care. “I invite all men to become more involved with their health by visiting their health practitioner this season and by becoming better informed of health risks and preventive services,” said Bob Dole, former Senator from Kansas, who co-authored the NMHW legislation. This important awareness period was built around the four pillars of Awareness-Prevention-Education-Family, and has resulted in countless campaigns that focus on raising awareness about health issues affecting men, boys and their families. “I reiterate my support and endorsement for men and boys’ health and wellbeing,” said former New Mexico Governor, Bill Richardson, who introduced legislation which led to the passage of this law.   Men’s Health Network is proud to report that in the 20 years since its passage, NMHW has encouraged the development of thousands of health awareness activities throughout the month of June.  Corporations, hospital systems, clinics, the faith-based community, the public sector, and others use the month to highlight their services and reach out to men and their families.

RECIPE

Ingredients • 2 1/2 pounds small lamb rib chops, cut 1/2 inch thick • Coarse salt (kosher or sea) and cracked or freshly ground black peppercorns • 1 tablespoon hot red pepper flakes, or to taste • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh rosemary • 1 to 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, depending on the cooking method • Lemon wedges, for serving

Directions (STATEPOINT) All too often, men stay out of the kitchen, relegating their food preparation to the outdoors. But even master grillers know that eating well means being versed in more than just barbecue. “Men cook for pleasure and showmanship -- not just for practicality -- which explains why they are so attracted to the grill, but indoors there are plenty of occasions to play with knives, fire and flavor,” says bestselling cookbook author and award winning food writer, Steven Raichlen. Raichlen’s new book “Man Made Meals: The Essential Cookbook for Guys,” teaches men to navigate the kitchen with confidence, style and tenacity. He operates under the principle that whether you’re frying an egg, building a quesadilla, or putting together a four-course meal, using quality ingredients and proper techniques can make or break a meal. And with just a bit of knowledge, men can stop relying on takeout or someone else for homemade cooking. Whether single or married, in college or retired, on a budget or on the board of directors, learning the way around a kitchen can help you eat well and you can even show off while doing it! Give this flavorful recipe – that you can eat with your hands a

• Arrange the lamb chops in a single layer on a baking sheet. Generously season one side with salt and pepper and half of the hot pepper flakes, minced garlic, and rosemary. Drizzle two tablespoons of olive oil over the chops and pat the ingredients onto the meat with your fingertips. Turn and repeat on the second side. Marinate in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes. •  Heat one tablespoon extra virgin olive oil in a large cast-iron skillet or on a plancha over high heat until shimmering. Add the lamb chops in a single layer (work in batches as needed) and cook until well-browned on the bottom, about three minutes. Turn and cook until well-browned and the meat is cooked through or to taste, about three minutes for medium.

•  Place the chops on a platter and encourage everyone to pick them up and eat the meat straight from the bone. Serve with lemon wedges for squeezing and plenty of napkins.

SAN JOSE POLICE DEPARTMENT New Driving Licenses Scams targeting the Immigrant Community The San José Police Department wants to warn the community on scams targeting victims that want to obtain a California driver license for non documented drivers.

The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is not issuing licenses until Jan 1, 2015.

Beware of the Scams:

1. Some criminals are asking for up to $1,000 each person to obtain a legal license. 2. Beware of agents claiming that they can help you by paying a fee. Some criminals are posing as DMV personnel, and lawyers with licenses. These imposters are illegally charging for services and licenses. 3. Beware of false DMV websites or “How to get a California license” web pages.  The official website is www.dmv. ca.gov. 4. Criminals are selling false documents to prove birth dates, and residency to present to the Department Motor Vehicle Department. 5. If you are a victim or know of anyone who is criminally involved please call 911 or contact Crime Stoppers at 947-STOP.

How to obtain a license:

1. Written Test: Pass a 36 question test. You can prepare and study the California Driver Handbook which is available in ten languages. www.dmv. ca.gov 2. Take Practice Test: Sample tests can be found on the DMV website. 3.

PATERNIDAD RESPONSABLE NACIÓNAL Hoy, uno de cada tres niños en los Estados Unidos está viviendo en un hogar sin su padre natural. Uno de cada tres niños en los Estados Unidos se van a la cama esta noche sin un padre para leerles un cuento, besarlos buenas noches, o consolaros si tienen un mal sueño. Una relación padre-hijo es una parte influyente de desarrollo y el bienestar de cualquier niño. Se ha sabido que los padres involucrados aportar beneficios positivos a sus hijos, incluyendo el rendimiento escolar, el comportamiento social, y el bienestar psicológico. Sin embargo, para los niños sin padres, los días festivos como el Día del Padre podría desencadenar emociones tristes, como la oportunidad

de celebrar el día especial. No sólo va a perder la oportunidad formar parte de sus vidas, pero otras consecuencias sorprendentes también se hacen evidentes. Por ejemplo, el 85% de todos los jóvenes en prisión vienen de hogares sin padre y 85% de todos los niños que presentan trastornos de conducta vienen de hogares sin padre. Entonces, ¿qué puede hacer usted para asegurarse de que su hijo tenga éxito?

Estar involucrado

Basta con pasar tiempo con sus hijos adolescentes, especialmente de uno-a-uno. Preste atención a ellos, compartir la conversación y escuchar activamente a lo que tienen que decir. Hablando de sus programas favoritos de televisión, música, amigos, actividades escolares, y otros intereses es un buen comien-

zo. Padres implicados a menudo hacen sacrificios, como renunciar a algunas de sus actividades favoritas, para dedicar más tiempo a interactuar con sus hijos. Juntos, hacen algunos recuerdos que sus hijos mantendrán durante toda la vida.

Sepa aceptar

Experimentar con la moda, los amigos, las aficiones o deportes es una parte normal del desarrollo. No deje que las apariencias externas o declaraciones de la moda impares se interpongan entre usted y sus hijos. Hacerles entender que aunque se le rindan cuentas de sus decisiones y comportamientos, les va a encantar a todo costo. Los hijos que se sienten aceptados por sus padres son más propensos a confiar en ellos y hablar sobre sus pensamientos, miedos y sueños.

Sea cariñoso

La mayoría de los padres

reconocen que los niños pequeños se desarrollan en la atención y el afecto. Sin embargo, muchos padres no se dan cuenta que estas necesidades no cambian como un niño crece. Los adolescentes anhelan la aceptación también - sobre todo de sus padres. Los adolescentes a menudo actúan como si no necesitan o quieren amor y la atención de sus padres, pero que realmente hacen. Se ven a ustedes por el apoyo y la información. Recomendar a los hijos a menudo que usted los ama. Algo tan simple como unas palabras de aliento o un abrazo rápido puede fortalecer su relación con su hijo tremendamente. A pesar de la laminación en los ojos, su hijo podría ofrecer un abrazo a cambio.

Sea consistente

Al mostrar el comportamiento personal estable y los hábitos de crianza, los adolescentes saben qué esperar

y qué se espera de ellos. El apoyo constante, combinado con reglas justas y su aplicación regular, dar certeza adolescentes en sus vidas. Trate de mostrar a sus hijos adolescentes un comportamiento coherente, incluso cuando es difícil de hacer.

Sea un modelo para seguir

Proporcionar apoyo físico o financiero a sus hijos es esencial, pero no es suficiente. Los padres también tienen que dar apoyo emocional, actuar como modelos seguir, y guiar a sus hijos adolescentes. Modelado de comportamiento responsable es clave para cualquier papá que buscan enseñar a sus adolescentes hábitos responsables y comportamientos. Ningún padre es perfecto, así que cuando se cometen errores, reconocerlos, pedir disculpas cuando sea apropiado, y tratar de usar esas oportunidades para modelar la rendi-

ción de cuentas con su hijo adolescente.

Estar disponible

Un padre que es rutinariamente disponible para sus adolescentes, a pesar de decir que él los ama, puede hacer que se creen otros aspectos de su prioridad, en la vida. Cuando un padre está disponible, se muestra a los adolescentes que son importantes. Estar disponible puede ser tan simple como ayudar a los adolescentes con la tarea o charlando con sus amigos cuando vienen.

Sea diversión

A veces, es fácil para los padres que se toman demasiado en serio; tantas interacciones entre usted y sus hijos adolescentes son para corregir o dirigirlos. Manteniendo las reglas es importante, puede estar más de una figura de autoridad con sus hijos adolescentes. Fundamentos de la diversión y pueden vivir juntos y felices. Ser capaz de reírse juntos puede abrir las líneas de comunicación con los adolescentes. Ellos se sentirán más cómodos compartiendo sus pensamientos y sentimientos-incluso admitiendo errores-que puede ser un punto de partida para conversaciones importantes sobre la conducta y el carácter.

San Jose Ma Laboratories workers rally for their wage rights

El arte de ahorrar

Ma Laboratories workers spoke up about their recent firings in retaliation from coming forward with their complaints. Veronica T. Avendaño EL OBSERVADOR Workers and supporters gathered outside at the Santa Clara County Courthouse in San Jose for a rally organized by the Santa Clara County Wage Theft Coalition, in support of  Ma Laboratories workers’ rights and a call to end wage theft this past Friday, June 6. “A huge number of employers from small group care homes, to large companies, like MA labs, are systematically stealing wages,” said Michael Tayag, volunteer for PAWIS(Pilipino Association of Workers and Immigrants). Tayag said each year dozens of workers approach the grassroots organization PAWIS seeking help with labor abuse. Santa Clara County Wage Theft Coalition, in collaboration with Sanford Heisler LLP, Chapin Fitzgerald LLP and the Law Offices of Thomas Marc Litton, used the rally as a megaphone for workers in the Tien v. Ma Laboratories lawsuit. San Jose based Ma Laboratories employees filed a lawsuit against the company in a wage and hour dispute. Workers claim the company

does not pay all wages due, nor provide meal periods, or rest periods. The IT company is also accused of timeshaving, a practice in which employees may clock in early but are not paid until their regularly scheduled time. “The top complaint is not getting their overtime,” said Evelin Ramirez, legal assistant for Sanford Heisler LLP. “A lot of them work six times a week, 10-12 hours a day, and they all make the same regular wage. Everyone in California should be aware that anything over 8 hours a day is overtime pay,” said Ramirez. Last month the plaintiffs secured a protective order to prevent the company from continuing to retaliate against the employees for their involvement in the lawsuit. “We filed a motion for a protective order with the judge, because the company was reporting our clients to immigration, to other government entities,” said attorney Felicia Medina, Sanford Hiesler.   “Wage theft in Santa Clara County is an epidemic,” said Ruth Silver Taube, an attorney and coalition member. Taube said that recent data from the labor commission

shows more complaints are filed in Santa Clara County than in the rest of the state. “When someone isn’t paid it affects their families, it affects their health, it affects every aspect of their life. It also is unfair competition for business, you can’t compete with businesses that don’t pay their workers because their costs are less,” said Taube.

Taube also points out that the county also has an issue with enforcement, “The tragedy is that even when workers prevail and receive judgements from the labor commission, they are unable to collect.” In 2012-2013 the labor commission awarded 8.4 million dollars, but only 2.4 million was able to be collected. “Employers do a cost benefit analysis and they figure there is no consequence if they don’t pay,” said Taube. Taube and the Santa Clara County Wage Theft Coalition are working to push legislation to prevent companies from practicing wage theft. The coalition, consisting of 16 organizations, is to suggest that the county pass a wage theft ordinance which will revoke contracts to businesses that have engaged in wage theft, and suspend any license or permits until the business pays the judgement.

ARTS & CULTURE

Jasper Johns, Willem de Kooning, Barbara Kruger, Jenny Holzer, Ed Ruscha, Andy Warhol— these stellar American artists are now part of the American canon of contemporary art history. Yet when Emily Fisher Landau collected their art (and works by numerous other now-prominent artists), they were radically adventurous and far from famous. Landau became one of the preeminent collectors of postwar art in the United States.  This exhibition is in essence a survey of American art since the 1960s: it is drawn from Landau’s historic promised gift to the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. As did the SJMA’s early “Whitney collaborations” –the beloved landmark surveys of 20th-century art at SJMA between 1994 and 2000—Legacy gives audiences access to extraordinary works by a pantheon of  innovative and pivotal artists. It offers a historical overview of the art of our times from the preeminent museum of American Art: it is unlike anything else currently available to Bay Area audiences. Legacy proudly launches

SJMA’s 45th-anniversary celebration, with roots in the past and a bold eye on the future! Art can teach us about the world. It can teach us how to interpret and process societal concerns; it can offer alternative ways of thinking; and it can teach us about ourselves. Many of the artworks in Legacy heralded seismic changes, not just in American society, but in the way the artist’s role has evolved over the decades. This exhibition offers insights into the visual thinking and political consciousness of American artists from the 1960s through 2002, with a particularly close look at the 1970s and 1980s.

Some seventy works by thirty-eight artists range from painterly abstraction to high realism to social commentary. Legacy includes an equally broad variety of media, e.g. ink on paper, collage, screen printing, painting, and sculpture. It encompasses a punchlist of postwar art movements: abstract expressionism, pop art, minimalism, conceptualism, feminist art, and postmodernism. Also on view are works by Carl Andre, John Baldessari, Matthew Barney, Peter Cain, Carroll Dunham, William Eggleston, Eric Fischl, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Rodney Graham, Keith Haring, Peter Hujar, Neil Jenney, Joseph Kosuth, Annette Lemieux, Sherrie Levine, Glenn Ligon, Robert Longo, Robert Mapplethorpe, Agnes Martin, John McLaughlin, Martin Puryear, James Rosenquist, Susan Rothenberg, Allen Ruppersberg, Lorna Simpson, Kiki Smith, Mark Tansey, Al Taylor, Cy Twombly, and David Wojnarowicz. This exhibition was organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. The San Jose presentation has been made possible by the Richard A. Karp Charitable Foundation, Bank of America, the Myra Reinhard Family Foundation, Farrington Historical Foundation, University Art, Doris and Alan Burgess, and Carol and Gerry Parker.

San Jose CALIFORNIA San Jose Repertory Theatre announced today that it has ceased operation as of Monday, June 9, 2014. The 34-year-old non-profit theatre company will file for bankruptcy immediately. The company’s board of trustees said in a statement that it took this step reluctantly and only after numerous attempts to find ways to continue operations. “We deeply regret having to take this action because of the impact it will have on our 51 employees, the artists we work with each season, our season ticket holders, loyal patrons and generous donors and supporters,” said Holly Walter, president of the San Jose

Rep’s board of trustees. “We also regret the impact on the city of San Jose and the local arts community. “However, after months of trying to solve our financial issues, reduce our debts and construct a sustainable model for the organization, we felt we had no choice but to take this action,” Walter added. “We want to thank everyone who has supported us during the past 34 years – including our committed donors and subscribers, volunteers, artists, and the city of San Jose. We owe a deep debt of gratitude to everyone. San Jose Rep has a 34-year history of providing professional, award-winning theatre and outreach and education programs for the community, and we’re saddened that this history has come to an end.”

Roddy Scheer & Doug Moss EARTHTALK Hunger is a growing problem around the world, in both developing and developed countries. As our population continues to rise, the amount of arable land per capita is declining and climate change is either drying out or flooding many formerly productive agricultural belts, making it more and more difficult to keep up with the growing demand for food. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) reports that we must produce 70 percent more food globally if we are to feed the world’s increasing numbers of hungry people in the coming decades. While more efficient agricultural practices can help, conservationists are increasingly looking to the ocean as a potential way out of our hunger woes. According to Oceana, a leading nonprofit dedicated to protecting the world’s oceans and marine biodiversity, wild seafood “requires no fresh water, produces little carbon dioxide, doesn’t use up any arable land and provides healthy, lean protein at a cost per pound lower than

beef, chicken, lamb and pork, making it accessible to the world’s poor.” But like other natural resources, fish stocks have also been in decline in recent years as a result of decades of overfishing. “The global fish catch peaked in the late 1980s and has been declining ever since,” reports Oceana. Indeed, data show the amount of fish caught around the world has fallen by some 18 percent over the last three decades. “If current trends continue, we’ll only have enough wild seafood to feed half the world’s population in 2050,” says the group. But that downward trend could be reversed by overhauling fisheries management, protecting fish spawning and breeding habitat and reducing by-catch (the incidental catch of species not targeted by fishermen). In areas where fisheries managers have been able to set catch limits based on fish biology instead of industry interests, seafood populations have started to bounce back. Likewise, fish stocks have recovered significantly in the water column in and around Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) and other critical “no-fish” zones.

“These are steps that have been proven to restore stocks of fish wherever they have been implemented,” adds Oceana. “While it’s counterintuitive, by imposing limits to what we catch today we will actually be able to increase the amount of fish that we catch tomorrow.” The group cites research showing that “sensible management” could increase fish yields up to 40 percent and increase the biomass in the oceans by almost 60 percent. “If managed wisely, our fisheries could provide the world with 700 million nutritious meals every day.” Through its “Save the Oceans, Feed the World Campaign,” Oceana is focusing its efforts on convincing national governments in countries that dominate the world’s fish catch to manage their own fisheries better. The fact that each coastal country is in control of an “exclusive economic zone” extending 200 nautical miles from shore and that these shallow near-shore waters contain the vast majority of marine life means that convincing a few key governments to reign in overfishing can make a world of difference.

Después de haber atravesado la escuela secundaria (dos veces), habrá grandes cambios para los

oficiales Schmidt (Jonah Hill) y Jenko (Channing Tatum) cuando deban infiltrarse en una universidad local. Pero cuando Jenko conoce a un alma gemela en el equipo de fútbol americano, y Schmidt se involucra en el mundo bohemio de los que estudian arte, empiezan a cuestionar su vínculo. Ahora ya no se trata simplemente de resolver el caso, sino que tienen que descubrir si pueden establecer una relación madura. Si estos dos adolescentes eternos logran pasar de novatos a ser hombres de verdad, es posible que la universidad sea lo mejor que les haya pasado en la vida.

In the thrilling second chapter of the epic trilogy, five years have passed since the heroic young

Viking Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) befriended an injured dragon and forever changed the way the residents of Berk interact with the fire-breathers. Now, Vikings and dragons live side-by-side in peace on the fantastical isle that has been transformed into a dragon’s paradise. But when grown-up responsibilities loom on the horizon, Hiccup and his faithful dragon Toothless take to the skies in search of answers. It’s much more than he bargained for, though, when Hiccup discovers that a mysterious dragon rider is really his long-lost mother Valka (Academy Award-winning actress Cate Blanchett) and that the peace between dragons and Vikings is threatened by the power-hungry Drago (Academy Award-nominated actor Djimon Hounsou) with help from the dragon trapper Eret, son of Eret (“Game of Thrones” actor Kit Harington).

(NOTIMEX) Armando Manzanero y Joan Sebastian se reencuentran de manera musical a través del dueto que realizarán, con la grabación en días próximos del tema denominado “El canario”, “es una belleza de canción”. En declaraciones a la prensa, el cantautor yucateco reconoció que Joan Sebastian es un gran amigo de él, por lo que mantienen una estrecha comunicación y más en estos momentos tan difíciles. Sobre la posibilidad de que el llamado “Huracán del Sur” se retire de los escenarios, Manzanero contestó en forma rápida que no, “estamos a punto de grabar en estos días un nuevo tema llamado ´El canario´“. Mencionó que ésta es una bella canción, de la que desconoce para qué material discográfico podría incluirse; sin embargo, explicó que la invitación fue de Joan hacia su persona. “Es mi primo hermano, porque es pariente de mi esposa y la última vez que nos vimos fue en Aguascalientes, tras terminar una de sus presentaciones que fue excelente, es un tipo muy fuerte y tenía que dejar el caballo”, dijo el compositor. Consideró que pese a que Sebastian se alejó de los espectáculos ecuestres, su composición sigue igual de vigente, además de que es un hombre fuerte que está seguro saldrá de nuevo adelante de sus problemas de salud. Pero no es solamente esta colaboración la única que busca Manzanero, ya que también reveló que desea trabajar con el cantante español Julio Iglesias, quien recientemente estuvo de visita en el país.

“No me enteré que vino a México, porque estuve en Miami”, dijo el cantautor, quien también expresó su admiración por Roberto Gómez Bolaños, a quien conoce desde 1954.

Jorge Mejía, acordeonista de Los Ángeles Azules, anunció que la agrupación prepara nuevo álbum inédito, que estará acompañado por una orquesta sinfónica, mientras que alterna sus compromisos.

Además el cantautor expresó el profundo compromiso que tiene con la Sociedad de Autores y Compositores de México (SACM), y durante la asamblea ofrecida hoy también se expusieron puntos de interés general para sus agremiados.

El músico explicó en entrevista que con esta nueva placa discográfica, la banda proyecta empezar a grabar el próximo mes en el estudio del Dr. Elías Mejía, líder de la banda, para tenerlo listo a finales de año.

“Nuestro próximo álbum viene con cumbias acompañadas de violín y flauta, junto con voces femeninas, es una gama de instrumentos bastante amplia. Apenas se está viendo si habrá invitados especiales”, declaró Mejía. El acordeonista aclaró que Los Ángeles Azules siempre tienen nervios por reinventarse y de explorar nuevas facetas, pero su unión familiar les da fuerzas para tocar. “Nosotros somos una familia dedicada a hacer cumbia y a lo nuestro, todos estamos estudiando para no equivocar nuestro ritmo”, añadió Jorge

Mejía, quien junto a sus demás integrantes formaron parte recientemente del MTV Unplugged de Pepe Aguilar. Los intérpretes de “El listón de tu pelo” arrancarán con su gira con sinfónica en Puebla, para después atender distintas fechas dentro de la República Mexicana. “Vamos a hacer esto, porque la gente nos lo está pidiendo; Chihuahua, Durango y el Estado de México, son algunos estados que nos han solicitado que cantemos, pero con su orquesta local”, concluyó Jorge Mejía.

Mario Jiménez Castillo EL OBSERVADOR Durante más de setecientos años el día Viernes 13 se ha considerado como un día de augurios perniciosos, misteriosos y hasta funestos. Desde los primeros albores de la era cristiana, los obispos de Roma temerosos que algún día claudicaran sus juicios y dictámenes, tomaron la decisión de aniquilar a todo aquel que tuviera ideas contrarias a lo establecido por los valores religiosos que ellos profesaban. Siglos más tarde, hombres de ciencia, grandes letrados y filósofos, formaron <<La Orden de los Templarios>>, organización que aún no revela del todo grandes secretos sobre la parte humana de Jesucristo. En la época medieval el Vaticano se vio en aprietos porque los caballeros del temple habían propagado su poder y creencias por toda Europa. En el siglo

XIV, varias monarquías del viejo continente habían caído presas del infortunio, la austeridad comenzó a ahondar en sus arcas, entonces los templarios comenzaron a facilitarle préstamos a los reyes y a los nobles, obteniendo dividendos y de paso inventando el mundo de los banqueros y economistas. Al observar Clemente V (Papa de 1305 a 1314) como avanzaban las obras de los templarios, como esparcían sus dominios y como ganaban aliados, entonces, con la ayuda del rey Felipe IV de Francia, decidieron formular una maquiavélica idea para exterminarlos a todos y para ello fraguaron un plan que les serviría de cuartada a la hora de llevar a cabo tan despiadada faena. El 11 de septiembre de 1307, Clemente V comenzó a enviar misivas a toda Europa, en ella se llamaba a todos los guardianes de la iglesia a que estuvieran preparados para realizar una gran obra en nombre de Dios, al mismo tiempo se

les pedía que abrieran los sobres el día viernes 13 de octubre. Al amanecer de ese día las cartas fueron abiertas y en ellas Clemente V proclamaba que “había tenido un sueño revelador”, una visión en la cual el mismísimo Creador le pedía que extirpara a los templarios de la tierra porque eran hechiceros malignos, ensalmistas y sodomitas de juicio apóstata, que denigraban su creación, por ello debían ser quemados en la hoguera. Aquel día se inició la cacería de brujas y miles de personas fueron calcinadas, mutiladas y salvajemente asesinadas. Lo más triste del caso es que aquella abominable matanza fue ejecutada por motivaciones económicas y políticas cubiertas or un falso velo de razones religiosas. Por aquella gran masacre del día viernes 13 de octubre de 1307, debido a la agonía de los miles de hombres que fueron asesinados en esa fecha, por ello se considera de mal augurio el viernes 13.

(NEWSUSA) You can thank Richard Nixon for all the presents about to come the way of American dads. Yes, it was President Nixon, of Watergate fame, who in 1972 signed a proclamation making Father’s Day a federal holiday. That Mother’s Day had already achieved such status 58 years earlier perhaps says everything about how -- even today -we’re only truly beginning to recognize the enormous impact fathers have on their kids’ happiness and sense of well-being. “Paternal involvement seems to predict adult adjustment better than does maternal involvement,” Psychology Today reports. Still wondering what to get your dad to show how well he helped you turn out? Read on. Daughters: If you were daddy’s little girl, frame that photo of him teaching you to roller skate in the park. Though he probably didn’t know it at the time, taking such an active interest in his daughter’s development helped give you the self-esteem needed to conquer the world (or, at the very least, a small corner of it). Sons: Back in the late ‘80s, Hollywood discovered that, as much as some men feared becoming like their fathers, they still longed to bond with them. If that sounds like your own father-son relationship, buy a DVD of the Kevin Costner movie “Field of Dreams” to watch together -- and see who tears up first at the end when Costner’s character joyously plays catch with his late father after erroneously thinking the voice that had commanded him to turn his cornfield into a baseball diamond (“If you build it, he will come.”) was referring to someone else.

(NOTIMEX) El equipo mexicano de vela irá con buena preparación al Campeonato Mundial de la especialidad en España, en donde buscarán las plazas a los Juegos Olímpicos de Río de Janeiro 2016, señaló su entrenador Adrien Gaillard. “Para nosotros es importante la preparación. El Mundial es la justa más importante si queremos buscar plazas a los Juegos Olímpicos”, dijo Gaillard en un comunicado del Comité Olímpico Mexicano (COM).

(NOTIMEX) El objetivo de todo jugador es ser titular en una selección nacional, más en una Copa del Mundo, sin embargo, el defensa mexicano Diego Reyes reconoció que más allá de su deseo por jugar en Brasil 2014, ante todo está el apoyo al grupo y respetar la decisión del técnico Miguel Herrera. De acuerdo a lo que podría ser la zaga titular del Tri, el jugador del Porto no estaría considerado, luego que se perfilan Francisco Javier Rodríguez, Rafael Márquez y Héctor Moreno. “Estoy trabajando para eso, para poder serlo (titular). La decisión la toma Miguel y, como profesionales, hay que respetarla, meta a quien meta, si estamos dentro o fuera de la cancha, hay que apoyar”, dijo.

Afirmó que ha tenido un proceso lleno de satisfacciones con el Tricolor, las cuales se acrecentan con esta posibilidad de ser parte de los 23 convocados a la justa mundialista. “Han sido cuatro años muy bonitos en los que he cumplido sueños. Por eso estoy muy contento de encontrarme aquí y agradecido por cada oportunidad que se me da”, indicó. Y más allá de tener minutos o no, disfruta “cada día el estar aquí, con los compañeros, en esta fiesta que es el Mundial y también el poder estar con buenas personas, porque estamos seguros de que podemos hacer bien las cosas”. La escuadra que dirige Miguel Herrera viaja este miércoles a la ciudad de Natal, donde el viernes hará su debut en la Copa del Mundo Brasil 2014 ante Camerún.

El certamen mundialista repartirá 50 por ciento de los boletos a los Juegos Olímpicos de Río de Janeiro 2016, por lo que los mexicanos Demita Vega y David Mier y Terán ya realizan una concentración en Santander, España. Gaillard comentó que luego del campamento en Cozumel, Quintana Roo, los competidores tienen una idea clara de las posibilidades y el trabajo requerido para alcan-

zar sus metas en los diversos compromisos internacionales antes de llegar al Mundial.

participar en el Campeonato de Europeo en Cesme, Turquía, del 1 al 5 de julio.

Expuso que en el caso de Demita Vega entrena tres semanas junto con los equipos de Inglaterra, Francia y Brasil en Santander, España, y el yucateco David Mier lo hará en los próximos días.

Berenguer recibió la confirmación de su participación, tras ubicarse en el puesto 36 del ranking mundial de la ISAF en la especialidad de tabla vela. En esta clase México deberá ubicarse entre las mejores 18 naciones en la varonil y en la rama femenil entre los 13 países para clasificar a Río de Janeiro 2016.
