OPINION

Hilbert Morlaes EL OBSERVADOR

An outcome of increased medical knowledge and its applied technology is that many individuals continue to live well beyond 65 years. During 1900, the median age at time of death was 49 years. Today, 35% of the American male population is already 72 years old and women even live a bit longer. So it behooves any adult who still has living elderly parents to do some planning about the care that may be needed when that elderly parent or relative becomes ill or incapacitated. This topic needs to be addressed responsibly because many adults did not save enough to have an adequate retirement plan, and only 16% invested in a long-term care insurance policy. With today’s implementation of the Affordable Care Act, some support may become available to your family if you know how to plan for the qualifications needed. This is the ‘family’ side of the ‘long term care’ challenges that an individual will face. Unfortunately, too many do not think about this inevitable need in time to implement an effective program. There is another public policy matter already upon us. Think of the continuum of care that an individual may need eventually.

Officials at the Department of Health, State of California, are increasingly having to cope with unlicensed ‘board and care residences’. Several ‘extended care’ residences exist. Only those whose bed capacity exceeds 6 beds are required to be licensed. An expert in this field recently informed the Mental Health Board that an estimated 15,000 unlicensed ‘Board and Care Residences’ exist in California. The number of them that exist in the County of Santa Clara is not known. The State and County Health Departments do not have the resources (budget and staff) to assess the existing B&CR entities in operation today. This is the case for individuals who need some assistance in taking their medications, performing their rehabilitation exercises and/or having access to healthy meals and social activities. Also, there is the need for appropriate levels of care. ‘Oversight and monitoring’ is important in those cases where an individual with mental health issues needs to take his/her medication, which mitigates their specific issue. The issue of ‘Board and Care Residences’ (B&CR) is very important because too often a patient, who is ready for discharge from a hospital, cannot be released because there is

Cinthia Rodríguez EL OBSERVADOR El día nacional de pruebas de VIH/SIDA es el 27 de junio. No te olvides de ir a hacerte la prueba. y hablando de eso, vi una película notable, “Un corazón normal.” El teatro estaba repleto y durante la película oí a la gente suspirar, reír histéricamente, llorar y aplaudir sin fin cuando se termino. Esta película es sobre la historia de cómo un grupo de

Fue impresionante ver tanta historia especialmente con escenas dramáticas. Algo que me sorprendió fue cuando uno de los personajes principales pensó que la nueva enfermedad era una forma del gobierno de tratar de eliminar a la población gay. Su personaje está realmente apasionado con lo que cree y hace todo en su poder para hablar sobre lo que esta pasando. Es trágico ver cómo muchas personas se estaban muriendo y no tenían respuestas, ni idea de lo que estaba pasando y poco a poco más y más iban

muriendo. También veras cómo el amor entre dos personas ayuda a enfrentar cualquier cosa. Hubieron tantos momentos en los que pensé que iba a estallar en lágrimas. La película está basada en una obra de teatro y me gustó cómo algunos de los personajes tenían unos hermosos monólogos y explicaban exactamente cómo se sentían. Muy conmovedora y con mucho talento. Estos actores, algunos de los cuales son gay, realizaron realmente todo lo posible para mostrar varias caras de una historia que hoy en día parece olvidada. Esta enfermedad fue tan grave en los años 80, pero ahora, en la actualidad, es como la diabetes o cualquier otra enfermedad. En la película se ve a un grupo de hombres que se dan a la tarea de informar a otros

no appropriate care-level empty bed available in a local licensed skilled nursing, extended care, or BC&R facility. The Mental Health Board, Systems Planning and Fiscal Subcommittee, is proposing to the Board of Supervisors to look into this matter in depth. An objective is to locate and identify both facilities needed, and professional staffing required. If adequate capacity can be identified, prepared and made available, then patients ready to be transferred from high per diem cost hospitals to an appropriate level extended care residential facility can be moved expeditiously. This ‘human care service’ arena is very complex. Trained staffing is needed to deliver these labor-intensive medical care services. Fortunately, organizations such as NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness,) the Board & Care Improvement Project of the Mental Health Department, SCVMC, its Mental Health Advocacy Project have produced two documents entitled, ‘Resident’s Rights in Unlicensed Room and Board Homes (Independent Living Homes)’ and ‘Resident’s Rights in Licensed Room and Board Homes (Independent Living)’.

En algunos momentos también me sentí avergonzada de cómo el país se negaba a hacer algo con este enorme problema. Era como si ellos solamente lo ignoraban, como si no estuviera sucediendo. No importa tu orientación sexual, pero yo sugiero que la veas. A veces nos olvidamos que tan fuera de control estuvieron las cosas. Este es un buen recordatorio de la lucha constante para lograr ser tratados con justicia e igualdad. Me gustaría tomar este momento para recordarles de ir a hacerse la prueba. Es tan rápido y fácil. Vamos a celebrar con inteligencia y seguridad.

that certain B&CR specialize in clients having developmental challenges; Alzheimer’s Syndrome, specific physical challenges, and mental health issues. Support services such as ‘Meals on Wheels’, case managers who do home visits, mental health and social services workers can be, and are, made available to assist families with the extended care challenges being faced in the home. It is very important to not wait until the care of an elderly family member has reached crisis levels that require high cost emergency services. Many health care challenges, both mental and physical, develop over time. One can learn to anticipate, to identify to enable early intervention and prevention, and to know that competent help can be made available. Prompt and effective extended care services take some planning and taking time to schedule. This process will help keep costs of services down; effectiveness up and personal stress levels down.

Santa Clara County CALIFORNIA Supervisor Cindy Chavez won unanimous support Monday from her fellow Santa Clara County Supervisors to expand an innovative gang violence prevention program – Trauma to Triumph – which has proven itself nationally and in local trials in partnership with the City of San Jose. The proposal calls for $289,480 for nursing and social work staff at the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center who provide intervention counseling services to gang members who are victims of life-threatening injuries from inter-gang violence. “We’re seeing really great opportunities to serve individuals while they’re in the hospital and, for lack of a bet-

First SF Bay Area hospital and one of just 32 hospitals nationwide ter term, a captive audience to talk to about gang intervention,” Chavez said. Esther Mota, a member of the Mayor’s Gang Prevention Task Force of the City of San Jose, agreed that the program, which has served 29 clients since September with 17 having completed the sixmonth course of counseling, is all about timing. “When somebody comes in and they’ve been assaulted –

been a victim -- it’s about that 24-hour window when they start to think about ‘Am I going to meet my maker or am I not?’ It’s important to get them into the right services.” The Trauma to Triumph program was added to the proposed County budget on the first day of a week-long series of public hearings scheduled to conclude Friday with the adoption of a budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1.

“We are excited to work collaboratively with the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care to improve the care of the hundreds of Atrial Fibrillation patients that we see each year,” added Sanjay Bindra, MD, Co-Medical Director of Regional’s Electrophysiology Program. “Our goal is to provide the best possible care to patients in our community with this complex disease process.”

Education in the Emergency Department, Observation Services, and Inpatient Unit

Regional’s protocol-driven and systematic approach to patient evaluation and management allows physicians to reduce time to treatment and to risk stratify patients to decrease their length of stay in the emergency department and the hospital. Key areas in which a facility with Atrial Fibrillation Certification must demonstrate expertise include the following:

Regional Medical Center of San Jose is a Level II Trauma Center staffed by in-house specialists 24/7. The hospital provides a host of technologically-advanced services including Cardiovascular, Neuro, Orthopedic and General Surgery, and Interventional Pulmonology, along with multi-organ Cancer Care, and services for Women and Children.

Atrial fibrillation (A-Fib) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia and has become recognized as a health concern that in some cases can lead to stroke and possible death. Nearly 3 million people in the United States have atrial fibrillation and the numbers are rapidly increasing as our population ages.

•Emergency Department Integration with Emergency Medical Services

“A-Fib is caused by a malfunction in the heart’s electrical system, says Theodore Chow, MD, Co- Medical Director for Regional’s Electrophysiology Program. “Regional offers leading edge treatments and emerging technologies including catheter ablation, a procedure to eliminate this type of irregular rhythm.”

•Treatment for Patients Presenting to the Emergency Department in Atrial Fibrillation

Regional Medical Center of San Jose holds Joint Commission advanced certification as a Comprehensive Stroke Center and a Get with the Guidelines- Stroke Gold Plus Performance Achievement Award from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. It is a certified Chest Pain Center, Certified Atrial Fibrillation Program and county-designated STEMI (heart attack) receiving center. Regional is recognized by the Joint Commission as a 2011, 2012, 2013 Top Performing Hospital on Key Quality Measures™, and is home to the San Jose Institute for Robotic Surgery.

Regional Medical Center of San Jose is the first SF Bay Area hospital to receive full Atrial Fibrillation Certification status from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care (SCPC). The three-year certification is in addition to Regional’s SCPC Chest Pain Certification, Comprehensive Stroke Center Certification and Trauma Center Designation. “We are pleased to be recognized as the first Bay Area hospital to receive this important certification,” says Mike T. Johnson, President and CEO of Regional. “We remain committed to offering quality heart programs that provide patients with advanced treatment options for atrial fibrillation.”

Ruth Muluneh Special to El Observador “It’s a Student Thing”, cosponsored by Silicon Valley De-Bug and East Side Union High School District (ESUHSD) through the support of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, gave a place where students could talk about Common Core. This shift in education known as Common Core Standards is a Nation wide transition developed for students to grow in a new academic environment. The event was a common ground where students, teachers and anyone who is involved in the East Side Union High School District of Silicon Valley can not only talk about Common Core but the roles students play in its implementation. “It’s a Student Thing” had a lot of activities to get students to show how much they understood about Common Core and small discussion groups where they not only talked about Common Core but also what they see in their schools that need improvement. It’s a Student Thing also showed what Common Core looked like and what it didn’t look like. In one activity at “It’s a Student Thing”, questions were asked like “Do you use electronics, like laptops, in your class regularly?” or “How much do you know about Common Core based upon your teachers?” Students would then walk to a section of the room where there were signs like ‘Poor’ ‘Fair’ ‘Good’ and ‘Excellent’ to describe how much they agreed or disagreed with the statement. This activity really made it obvious to ESUHSD members and teachers on how much students know about Common Core and it made it obvious on how students felt about their schools. “It’s a Student Thing” also had an activity where people were put into small groups

The cool thing about this activity is that the small groups didn’t only have students and teachers but also ESUHSD members and included them in these small groups. The small groups became a place where students could talk honestly to their peers, teachers and the people that actually decide on what goes on in school. It also gave a place where ESUHSD members could ask both students and

teachers how they feel about certain things that go on in the schools and what they think need improvement. It was an honest, free space where questions were asked and true answers were given. “It’s a Student Thing” became a place where students were able to speak their mind about Common Core as well as what is going on at their schools. It was a place where students expressed how they feel about Common Core and it was also a place where students learned more about their education.

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. Proper documents: Prepare all your documents to demonstrate the Department of Motor Vehicle when applying for your license that proves your residency and verify your identity. 4.

floor dedicated to startups as well. Are you interested in expanding your professional skills set? Look into the education sessions available.

PHOTO: SOURCE: (c) IAEE and Oscar Einzig (StatePoint) When it comes to getting a job or doing business, social media and other forms of electronic communication are great networking tools, however, there will never be a substitute for communicating face-to-face. In 2013, 68 million business professionals attended business-to-business exhibitions, according to the Center for Exhibition Industry Research (www.CEIR.org). And it’s no wonder that this industry contributes more than $79.3 billion directly to the gross domestic product in attendee and exhibitor spending. All working professionals stand to gain from attending exhibitions and events as buyers, exhibitors, or simply as general attendees. Whether you’re at a major trade show looking for candidates to help expand your business,

or you’re a job seeker attending a local business conference, exhibitions bring the right audiences together. Whatever your goals are, there are universal ways to maximize your presence at industry events:

Be Prepared Learn about event attendees and engage with them online in advance so that when you meet in person, you’re simply continuing the dialogue. Trade show organizers often provide planning resources, like mobile apps and scheduling tools that make these conversations easier. It is helpful to create a list of whom you plan to connect with beforehand and what you want to get out of your experience. Are you starting a business? See if the event features a startup session. Most events have space on the exhibit

 New Career Path While employment rates are on the rise, they’re still lower than prior to the recession. Despite the numbers, the exhibitions and events industry is thriving, supporting 1.8 million jobs across the country, according to the Convention Industry Council. Whether your experience is in research, food and beverage management, event planning or sales, the exhibitions and events industry may be an ideal sector to forge a new career.

Learn You may no longer be in school, but that’s no excuse to discontinue career training or your education. Take advantage of workshops, seminars and the other opportunities to expand your skills and earn new certifications that exhibitions and events provide. At the very least, such experiences can provide an opening with key contacts. Whether you’re the top boss or looking to get hired, exhibitions and events can be a great time and money investment.

Jason Alderman Practical Money El 1 de junio comienza la temporada de huracanes. Mientras tanto, en gran parte del oeste estadounidense, las grandes sequías han aumentado significativamente el peligro de que se produzcan incendios forestales durante el verano. Y no nos olvidemos de las tormentas de nieve récord del invierno pasado –ni de la posibilidad permanente de que se produzcan terremotos, tornados, inundaciones y otros desastres naturales. Estos eventos catastróficos son inevitables, mayormente imprevisibles y suelen suceder sin aviso. Si bien no siempre podemos predecir los desastres naturales, sí podemos prever sus posibles consecuencias, que pueden incluir la pérdida de propiedades, la interrupción del servicio de luz o agua y la escasez de alimentos y suministros. Siéntese con su familia y haga un plan para casos de desastres. Planificar con tiempo y saber lo que puede llegar a necesitar en circunstancias extremas puede ahorrarle mucho tiempo, dinero y complicaciones. La Agencia Federal de Administración de Emergencias (FEMA) (www.fema. gov) ofrece buenas sugerencias para desarrollar un plan familiar de emergencia, armar un kit de suministros de emergencia y aprender qué hacer antes, durante y después de una emergencia (desde un incendio en su casa hasta un ataque terrorista.) También pueden ofrecer un plan de emergencia para las mascotas de la familia. Estas son algunas ideas para el plan de emergencia que talvez no se le hayan ocurrido:

JUNE 20-26, 2014

• Seleccione puntos de encuentro tanto dentro como fuera de su vecindario, donde su familia pueda reunirse después de una emergencia. • Elija a una persona (posiblemente fuera de su ciudad) a la que todos puedan contactar para enterarse de las novedades. • Asegúrese de que sus hijos sepan cómo escapar de la casa en caso de incendio. • Identifique y tenga preparado los artículos esenciales que necesitará para sobrevivir durante, por lo menos, tres días en caso de no recibir ayuda. Incluya gran cantidad de agua (al menos un galón por persona por día,) alimentos no perecederos y medicamentos. No se olvide del agua y la comida de sus mascotas. • Tenga preparado un kit de emergencia con baterías, linterna, un radio a batería o con carga completa, tabletas purificadoras de agua, ropa, mantas, abrelatas, herramientas, papel higiénico, toallitas húmedas, bolsas de basura, cargador de celular solar, etc. • Si algún miembro de la familia recibe un tratamiento de soporte vital (ej. diálisis) identifique lugares de tratamiento alternativos en caso de que el suyo no funcione. • Lleve una foto suya con sus mascotas en caso de que deban separarse. • Guarde en un lugar seguro dinero en efectivo para casos de emergencia por si los cajeros automáticos no funcionan. En caso de desastre, necesitará tener acceso a sus registros financieros y legales. Tome estas medidas ahora para asegurarse de poder acceder a ellos fácilmente cuando llegue el momento:

• Haga un registro de todos los números de cuentas, números de emergencia, información de contacto y contraseñas de sus cuentas

bancarias y de las tarjetas de crédito, préstamos, pólizas de seguro, servicios y otras cuentas importantes. • Actualícelo regularmente y guarde copias impresas en lugares seguros fuera de su casa, como una caja de seguridad o en casa de algún amigo de confianza que viva en otra área. • También puede enviarse a sí mismo la lista por correo electrónico en un archivo encriptado protegido por contraseña, guardarlo en un CD o pendrive, o usar un servicio de almacenamiento virtual al que pueda acceder desde cualquier conexión a Internet. • Haga copias en PDF de sus declaraciones fiscales, pólizas de seguro y documentos legales y guárdelas en otro lugar, al igual que en el caso anterior, por si sus computadoras se dañan. Haga también copias digitales de las fotos familiares que más aprecie, documentos y otros recuerdos que el dinero no pueda reemplazar. Si alguna vez tiene que hacer un reclamo en su compañía de seguro o reclamar una deducción fiscal por bienes perdidos, robados o dañados, será mucho más fácil si tiene un inventario de todas sus cosas – incluso es mejor tener fotos o videos. Pruebe la aplicación de inventario doméstico del Instituto de Información de Seguros (www. iii.org), que es gratis y segura. Además, investigue qué cubren y qué no cubren sus pólizas de seguro en caso de desastres naturales. Talvez necesite contratar una cobertura adicional para los daños asociados con huracanes, tornados, terremotos y otras condiciones climáticas. En resumen: tener un plan familiar de emergencia puede reducir el impacto en caso de desastre.

The signs of depression in an elderly person can be easy to miss. We may incorrectly assume that being depressed is just part of the aging process. But despite its often being ignored or overlooked, depression can be a very real problem for many elderly people. It's a serious health issue that needs to be treated when it happens at any age. Admittedly, recognizing true depression in the elderly can be difficult. An older person can have numerous reasons for feeling sad – the recent loss of someone close, increased health problems, lessened social opportunities, financial worries and similar problems the elderly can face. The key is recognizing the differences between simple sadness and actual depression. Sadness is just an emotional low point and it's

usually short-lived. True depression is a life-altering problem. It can diminish every aspect of a person’s life and helps cause the high rate of suicide among the elderly. Real depression is an ongoing, persistent mood. It’s not just having a sad day or two but rather facing a continual emotional low that interferes with daily life activities and functions. There are a number of signs to look for. They include withdrawing socially, losing interest in pleasurable activities and ignoring personal care and hygiene. A depressed person often has sleep problems, perhaps difficulty falling asleep or waking repeatedly, then suffering from daytime sleepiness. Depression can also upset normal eating patterns. There may be a lack of interest in food and subsequent weight loss, or binge eating and sudden weight gain.

Depression can leave the person feeling discouraged, hopeless, and worthless. There may be little energy, no interest in things around him or her, or perhaps high levels of anxiety, feelings of guilt or constant irritability and demanding behavior. If someone you care about (or you yourself ) is displaying such symptoms over an extended period of time, clinical depression could be the cause and it requires action. Depression does not cure itself or just go away. And many elderly people have trouble asking for help, especially just because they feel "sad." Be pro-active and seek help. While clinical depression is a serious problem, the good news is that once identified, there are a variety of effective treatments available. Consult with a professional counselor or other mental health professional to find out more about dealing with this issue.

(NAPSM) Una nueva encuesta nacional en línea realizada por Harris Interactive en nombre de ViiV Healthcare en 2013 arroja cierta luz sobre los posibles motivos por los que algunas personas con VIH positivo buscan tratamiento y lo continúan, y otras no lo hacen. ¿Por qué tiene importancia? Porque, a pesar del importante progreso en el acceso a la atención y la terapia para el VIH, solo uno de cada tres adultos que tienen VIH en Estados Unidos toma el medicamento que necesita para vivir de manera más saludable durante más tiempo y reducir el riesgo de transmitir la enfermedad a una pareja. De acuerdo con la encuesta, los adultos con VIH positivo

que no toman un medicamento recetado para tratar su enfermedad no tienen información precisa sobre el VIH y su tratamiento. De hecho, solo un 25 porciento de estas personas están conscientes de que tomar un medicamento recetado para el VIH reduce el riesgo de transmitir la enfermedad a una pareja. “Esta encuesta refleja que la falta de conocimiento sobre el tratamiento por parte de las personas con VIH puede ser un posible obstáculo para la terapia antirretrovírica y que es fundamental educar a las personas sobre la importancia y los beneficios del tratamiento para el VIH”, expresó Julie Scofield, Directora Ejecutiva de la National Alliance of State & Territorial AIDS Directors (Alianza Nacional de Directores

Estatales y Territoriales para el SIDA). “Como parte de nuestros constantes esfuerzos educativos, también debemos continuar abordando el estigma y los problemas de discriminación existentes que enfrentan las personas con VIH. Las consecuencias relacionadas con esta problemática son de amplio alcance y pueden interferir con el tratamiento, la atención y las pruebas del VIH.” Las autoridades sanitarias recomiendan el tratamiento temprano para el beneficio del paciente, por lo tanto es importante que todas las personas diagnosticadas con VIH busquen la atención y la asesoría que necesitan. El sitio web www.aids.gov es un gran recurso para obtener información sobre el apoyo local, el tratamiento y la prueba de VIH.

(FAMILY FEATURES) Cuando se reúnen los amigos y la familia para celebrar los días cálidos, la ensalada de papa es probablemente la guarnición más popular. No obstante, la tradicional ensalada con mayonesa y huevos que todos conocemos y disfrutamos está siendo reemplazada por versiones más livianas, que incluyen más vegetales, distintas fuentes de proteínas y aderezos más saludables.

Cinthia Rodriguez EL OBSERVADOR Hace 33 años se descubrió el virus de la inmunodeficiencia humana y el síndrome de inmunodeficiencia adquirida lo que ahora conocemos como VIH/SIDA. En 1981, no había ni siquiera un nombre para la enfermedad. En 1983 se dio el primer caso en el Condado de Santa Clara y comenzó la respuesta a esa emergencia, incluyendo el esfuerzo nacional de crear un día especial de hacerse la prueba de VIH/SIDA, el 27 de junio. Uno de los grupos al que más les interesa llevarle el mensaje de hacerse la prueba del VIH es la comunidad latina principalmente porque ellos no se hacen la prueba del VIH por una u otra razón.

¿Cuándo fue tu última prueba de VIH? Ponte en eso.

Encuentra donde hacerte la prueba www.HIVtest.org

“Ay que notar que en el 2010 se estimó que 118 mil latinos murieron con el diagnostico de SIDA, esto es al nivel nacional, este no es un numero pequeño, realmente esta indicando que el VIH esta impactando de una manera desproporcionada a la comunidad latina”, dijo Patty Cerrato, especialista en educación de salud, Salud Pública del Condado de Santa Clara. “Todos tenemos que tomar la acción de hacernos la prueba, hablar con los hijos, los amigos, mantener el tema en la mente, educarse acerca del tema”. Un tercio de la población que tiene VIH/SIDA son hispanos. Es una comunidad que esta siendo afectada gravemente con este problema. Una en cinco personas que tienen VIH no saben que tienen el virus. Estas personas están transmitiendo la en-

JUNE 20-26, 2014

fermedad sin saberlo y es por eso que es importante hacerse la prueba. La prueba es sencilla, no es dolorosa, se puede hacer con una muestra bucal, y los resultados están listos en 20 minutos. Para participar en hacerse la prueba pueden visitar el sitio www.hivtest. org poner su código postal y saldrán las clínicas donde puedes hacerte la prueba. Todas las clínicas del Condado de San José tienen pruebas gratuitas. “Lo que estamos intentando hacer principalmente es, primero disminuir los números de infecciones de VIH, después, es mejorar la calidad de vida y cuidado de las personas que ya están infectadas con VIH”, dijo Cerrato. “También tratar de disminuir la disparidad en salud relacionada con los incrementos de los casos de VIH”. Hay diferentes razones por las que la gente no se hace la prueba, ya sea por no tener seguro medico o por no estar informados, y a veces no quieren hacerse la prueba de VIH porque esta enfermada está estigmatizada. Existen clínicas donde pueden llegar y hacerse la prueba confidencialmente o anónimamente, donde no dará ningún dato personal. En caso de que el resultado sea positivo es mejor saberlo en un estado temprano porque las personas tienen mejor posibilidades de mantenerse saludable y los tratamientos ejercerán un efecto mejor en la persona. El condado tiene varias organizaciones, como el programa ‘conexiones posi-

tivas’ donde un trabajador social le ayuda a adquirir todos los servicios necesarios. Eso incluye tratamiento, servicios de nutrición, consejería, y educación sobre medicamento. El programa no requiere información de estatus migratorio. También está el Health Trust, otra organización que proporciona la misma ayuda. Del 2011 al 2013 en el Condado de Santa Clara han habido aproximadamente 125-140 personas que han sido diagnosticadas por primera vez con HIV/SIDA. En el pasado alcanzó un máximo de 340 casos pero en 1997 se reportó por primera vez que había una reducción realmente grande debido a los tratamientos y medicación. “Gradualmente la gente se ha ido educando y tomando acción, y diferentes tratamientos medicinales han llegado a las mentes de las personas, y el riesgo de contraer la enfermedad se está reduciendo”, dijo Cerrato. “Creo que han dejado de hablar del tema porque ya saben la forma cómo se transmite, saben cómo prevenirla, y la gente esta respondiendo a estos mensajes”.

Cinthia Rodriguez EL OBSERVADOR 33 years ago the human immunodeficiency virus and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome was discovered, what we now know as HIV/ AIDS. In 1981, there was not even a name for the disease. In 1983, Santa Clara County had its first known case and they began their response to the emergency. Including the national effort to get tested. This year, that day is set to June 27. The county is really interested in delivering the message primarily to the Latino community because for whatever reason they don’t’ really get tested for HIV. "Let’s keep in mind that in 2010, an estimate of 118,000 Latinos died because of AIDS, this is the national level, this is not a small number, this really indicates that HIV is disproportionately impacting the Latino community," said Patty Cerrato, specialist health educator, Santa Clara County Public Health. "We all have to take action to get tested, talking with children, friends, keep the theme in mind, get educated about the issue." A third of the population with HIV/AIDS is Hispanic.

It is a community that is severely affected by this problem. One in five people with HIV do not know they are living with the virus. These people are unknowingly spreading the disease making it important to get tested. The test is simple, it’s not painful, it is a mouth swab, and the results are ready in 20 minutes. To participate in getting tested people can visit www.hivtest.org put in their zip code and the clinics offering the test will be listed. All clinics in Santa Clara County provide the test at no cost. "What we're trying to do is, first mainly decrease the numbers of HIV infections, then, is to improve the quality of life and care for people who are already infected with HIV," said Cerrato. "We also try to reduce health disparities that are related to increase in HIV cases." Some people go without being tested because they lack insurance or are not being informed and sometimes they simply don’t want to ask for an HIV test because this disease is stigmatized. There are clinics where they can get confidential or anonymous testing. If the results are positive it is better to know at an early stage because people have

a better chance of staying healthy and the treatments will also have a greater benefit. The county has several resources available, such as the program 'positive connections' where a social worker helps the person acquire all the necessary services. That includes therapy, nutrition services, counseling, education and medicine. The program does not require knowledge of immigration status. There is also the health trust, another organization that provides the same support. From 2011 to 2013 in Santa Clara County there have been approximately 125-140 people who have been newly diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. It once reached a maximum of 340 cases reported and by 1997 for the first time there was a really big reduction due to treatment and medication. "Gradually people became educated and all such actions and different drug treatment came into peoples’ mind and the risk of contracting the disease is shrinking," said Cerrato. "I think they have ceased to talk about it because they know how its transmitted, they know how to prevent it, and people are responding to these messages."

a cinta cuenta la historia de cuatro jóvenes del barrio bajo de Nueva Jersey que se unieron para formar el icónico grupo The Four Seasons. La historia de sus penas y triunfos está acompañada por las canciones que influenciaron a toda una generación, incluyendo “Sherry”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, “Walk Like a Man”, “Dawn”, “Rag Doll”, “Bye Bye Baby”, “Who Loves You” y muchas más. Estos éxitos clásicos ahora son adoptados por una nueva generación de fans a través de la obra musical, la cual ha permanecido en Broadway por más de ocho años y también ha gozado de exitosas giras por todo el mundo.

In the highly anticipated sequel, which was inspired by Steve Harvey’s best-selling book Act Like a Lady, Think Like A Man, all the couples are back for a wedding in Las Vegas. But plans for a romantic weekend go awry when their various misadventures get them into some compromising situations that threaten to derail the big event.

Ten years after a collapse of the Western economic system, Australia’s mineral resources have drawn the desperate and dangerous to its shores. With society in decline, the rule of law has disintegrated and life is cheap. Eric (Guy Pearce)is a cold and angry drifter who has left everything and everyone behind. When his car –his last possession – is stolen by a gang of desperate desert hustlers, Eric embarks on a ruthless mission to track them down. Along the way, he is forced into an unlikely relationship with Rey (Robert Pattinson), the naive and injured younger brother of gang member Henry (Scoot McNairy) who has left Rey behind in the aftermath of the gang’s recent robbery.

The Mazda3 has a quality feel with great technology in this economic compact car. Driving this car made me feel connected to the road as I opened up the throttle with the 2.0L DOHC 4 Cylinder engine, 6-speed manual and the SKyACTIV®-G gasoline engine boasting a 155 horsepower and 150 lb-ft torque. EPA gas mileage with advanced direct injection is 29 City/40 Highway mpg. Helping the Mazda3 achieve its fuel economy is the i-Eloop regenerative braking system. Similar to hybrid vehicles, i-Eloop converts kinetic energy to electricity when the car is braking or coasting down. Rather than reuse that electricity as drive energy, though, the Mazda3 uses it to power all of the car’s auxiliary systems, taking some of the generator load off the

Roddy Scheer & Doug Moss EARTHTALK It’s unfair that communities, which are less organized and less wealthy, often shoulder the burden of hosting polluters like landfills, incinerators and power plants. “Frequently, these facilities end up in the places that put up the least resistance, either because residents are unaware of the projects planned for their area, or because they don’t have the money, organization, knowledge or political clout to mount effective opposition,” says the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), a leading non-profit. The key, says NRDC, is to stay informed: “A lot of bad projects slip into communities under the radar,” they caution. Companies looking to site unpopular projects that need approval from local zoning boards count on local residents being absent from the public meetings where the projects get discussed. Attending planning & zoning or city council meetings is a first line of defense against letting polluters in. Be prepared by getting meet-

ing agendas in advance and looking for red flags that can be discussed with the powers-that-be in person or at public sessions. And keep up with the Public Notices section of the local paper where public hearings concerning local land use must be announced by law. Staying informed is one thing, but knowing what to look and listen for is another: “Certain types of development pose potential environmental and health problems for host communities,” reports NRDC. “They need not be automatically opposed, but they should be carefully scrutinized.” NRDC recommends paying close attention to plans for incinerators, landfills, waste transfer stations, water pollution control or sewage treatment plants, bus or truck depots and parking lots, power plants, highways, airports, metal plating and auto body or auto repair shops. Beyond looking out for these and other types of polluting projects, community residents should be aware of and ask questions about any proposed change in zoning or in the local municipal or county

“Master Plan” or “Community Environmental Plan.” Some of the tasks necessary to mounting a good defense include thoroughly researching a proposed facility’s potential impacts (including contacting people in other areas where similar types of facilities have been sited), bringing in experts and reaching out to more community members to align them accordingly.

While driving, or changing lanes, the Mazda3 had a lane departure warning system that alerted you if another car was near your car and helped to keep you alert with the beeping signals.

Starting manufactured suggested retail price basic begins at $18,945 but with available features, $24,335.

If community members are focused on their goals and have enough support from neighbors they can succeed in either blocking a proposed new facility or expansion, or at least in increasing pollution controls. Communities need to be vigilant about plans to site incinerators, landfills, waste transfer stations, sewage treatment plants or other toxic facilities nearby.

San Jose CALIFORNIA Prepare for your close-up – with food like you’ve never seen it before. The Photography of Modernist Cuisine: The Exhibition, a collection of more than 75 large-format photographs of food taken by Nathan Myhrvold and his Modernist Cuisine team, will be on display at The Tech Museum of Innovation from

June 25 to September 1. Admission is free. Myhrvold is the former Microsoft chief technology officer and author of the critically acclaimed Modernist Cuisine books, which are beloved by chefs. The photographs in the exhibition illuminate the fascinating, accessible science at work every day in our kitchens. “Cooking is the only science experiment we all do

on a regular basis,” Myhrvold says. "Nathan Myhrvold's passion for food and photography are on full display in this extraordinary exhibit,” said Tech President Tim Ritchie. “He enables us to see how wonderful and beautiful food really is, and how we can use technology to prepare it in delightful ways." “I hope that others share with us the child-like wonder and curiosity I feel when looking at

these photos,” Myhrvold says. “The exhibition and book are in many ways a culmination of my lifelong interest in photography, in much the same way that Modernist Cuisine was a milestone in my interest in food.” Visitors will see the fractal structures and mesmerizing color gradations of vitamin C crystals through research microscopes with filters that polarize light. They’ll learn about the physics that propel and explode a bursting kernel of popcorn through the lens of a high-speed video camera that slows the action by a factor of 200. This unprecedented collection of images uses these innovations and other advanced technologies – including photographic techniques like panoramic stitching, focus stacking, and microscopy – to show the world of food in an entirely new way. The Tech is the exhibition’s second stop in a three-year worldwide tour.

Dulce María en una su entrevista de prenza

Son parte del Programa Especial de Cultura para la entidad

(Notimex) Las cantantes Tania Libertad y Eugenia León ofrecerán los días 24 y 26 de junio conciertos en Michoacán, como parte del Programa Especial de Cultura para la entidad que aplica el Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes (Conaculta). Tania se presentará el 24 de este mes, a las 19:00 horas en la Plaza de Avenida Morelos, en Huetamo, mientras que Eugenia cantará el 26 de junio en la Explanada del Ayuntamiento de Lázaro Cárdenas a la misma hora. Lo anterior con el objetivo de llevar actividades artísticas y culturales de calidad, más allá de los circuitos tradicionales. En conferencia de prensa, ambas artistas externaron su beneplácito por participar en el programa y adelantaron que además de interpretar sus éxitos musicales, prepararán un repertorio mexicano y alusivo al estado. “Michoacán es un estado de tradiciones, cultura y gente bonita. Para mí es motivo de orgullo ser considerada en este proyecto, aportando un granito de arena para promover la cultura y la música de este país tan hermoso”, destacó Eugenia León, quien ganó el primer lugar en el Festival de la OTI 1985.

La peruana Tania Libertad destacó que México ha sido como su segunda patria y siempre disfruta participar en eventos que contribuyan a promover e impulsar culturas, por lo que prometió un concierto memorable. El Programa Especial de Cultura para Michoacán forma parte, al mismo tiempo, del programa México, Cultura para la Armonía, que busca hacer del arte y la cultura agentes de la transformación social para contribuir a la reconstrucción del tejido social. (Notimex)

Autoridades culturales de Michoacán informaron que en lo que resta del año, se organizarán caravanas con grupos locales y nacionales de distintas disciplinas que harán recorridos llevando espectáculos, librobuses, cuentacuentos, talleres y actividades diversas para el público infantil y juvenil.

La cantante mexicana Dulce María dio a conocer que incursionará en el teatro musical, mientras continuará con la promoción de su más reciente disco “Sin fronteras”.

Antes de los espectáculos de Eugenia y Tania, los días 21 y 22 de junio, se realizará en Uruapan, Michoacán, la cuarta jornada de las Galas Identitarias y la Fiesta de la Cultura Viva.

Aunque la actriz no quiso dar detalles sobre su participación en teatro, pues desea darlo a conocer el próximos viernes al lado del productor, trascendió que se encuentra en pláticas para actuar en “La era del rock”.

Son encuentros en los que se presentan las expresiones culturales de las comunidades como una forma de reconocer y reforzar la dignidad de la identidad cultural, al tiempo que se otorgan reconocimientos como Tesoros Humanos Vivientes.

En declaraciones a la prensa, Dulce María señaló que actualmente en México se están haciendo propuestas interesantes de cine y teatro, lo cual le agrada, “está hecha la propuesta y la negociación va

muy avanzada para este proyecto teatral”. Señaló que a la par de este proyecto, también dará continuidad a su actual álbum “Sin fronteras”, mismo que presentó hace unas semanas en el Lunario del Auditorio Nacional. Por otra parte, dijo que después de siete años, está lista para sacar otra publicación, “ya entregue material y aunque es de la misma etapa, es algo renovado”. Indicó que este libro será editado en español y portugués y de manera digital estará todas partes, mientras que de manera física sólo en México, aunque estudiarán la posibilidad de presentarlo también en Brasil, donde cuenta cwwwwwwwwwwon gran número de seguidores, gracias al extinto grupo RBD.

Cristóbal Colón descubrió el 19 de noviembre de 1493 a la isla de Puerto Rico durante su segundo viaje a las Américas. Los indígenas la llamaban Borikén. La isla fue bautizada en nombre de San Juan Bautista.

Iris en los ochentas bailaba como una diosa erótico caribeña y le dejó el ojo cuadrado nada más y nada menos que al Rey Hussein de Jordania. ¡Epa! Actualmente nadie baila con el tumbao que tiene Iris Chacón. Si señores, por su música, arte, belleza, calidad humana y hasta por el coquí, que “Viva Puerto Rico”.

Step 1: Make a travel wish list

SABOR DEL VALLE LATINO VINTNERS IN SILICON VALLEY AUGUST 1, 6PM, HISTORY PARK, SAN JOSE WWW.SABORDELVALLE.ORG

Kick off your travel planning by talking to all family members about what they’d like to see and do on vacation. Keep it light-hearted and have some fun - chat with your 4-year-old over

breakfast or text your teen after school. As you have these conversations, notice commonalities, such as location and experiences.

Step 2: Research, research, research

After your initial conversations with your family, it’s time to do your research. The Internet has made selecting a travel destination that much easier - or harder because there are so many options. Check out tourism organizations, such as a Chamber of Commerce or Convention and Visitor’s Bureau (CVB). Look up online hotel and travel reviews - these sites can provide invaluable information for travelers. Many sites even have free online travel planners or visitor’s guides.

Step 3: Choose a destination for everyone

Perhaps the most important consideration when planning a family vacation is to select a destination that has something for every person in your group.

Step 4: Select your ideal accommodations

Whether you’re vacationing

for a long weekend or multiple weeks, it’s important to choose the right accommodations for your family. For example, if you know you’ll be at the beach daily, stay at a shore-side resort. If you want to save on eating expenses, look into condos with kitchens. For big groups such as family reunions, consider a beach house that allows everyone to stay in their own room within one shared space.

Step 5: Create a funfilled itinerary

This is a vacation, and while you shouldn’t plan out every hour of every day, having a basic itinerary gives direction to your trip and will help your group build excitement prior to your departure. Plus, planning ahead allows you to seek out deep discounts on tickets to shows and theme parks. You can even explore free activities like festivals and celebrations in the area that would be worthwhile to attend. If you feel like it’s time for your family to take a break from the stress of everyday life, a family vacation might be just what everyone needs.

Considerado el mejor portero del Mundial Brasil 2014, el mexicano Guillermo Ochoa es nuevamente visto con interés por los clubes italianos Milán y Napoli, informaron hoy medios locales. Según el cotidiano La Gazzetta dello Sport “ya hay quien lo ve con la camiseta del Milán”, la escuadra propiedad de Silvio Berlusconi que en el pasado había demostrado interés por el mexicano. Por su parte, el sitio web ultimecalcionapoli.it recordó que desde mayo de 2013 el nombre de Ochoa fue vinculado con el Napoli.Dijo que esa sociedad estaría nuevamente interesado en él en virtud de la finalización de su contrato con el club francés Ajaccio y su desempeño en el partido del martes. En tanto, el diario La Repubblica escribió que en el encuentro de la víspera entre Brasil y México, finalizado con un 0 a 0, la escuadra carioca se topó “con un pavoroso muro de nombre Guillermo Ochoa”, “un muchacho que paró hasta a las moscas y que en este momento está incluso sin una escuadra”. “Seguramente desde esta mañana su hotel estará lleno

de mercaderes de carne humana”, anotó.“El portero desempleado que detuvo al Brasil de Neymar”, tituló el diario La Stampa un artículo sobre la proeza de Ochoa.“Detuvo todo, mandó fuera de sí a Felipao Scolari (el técnico de la escuadra brasileña)”, anotó. “El hombre que hizo enmudecer a Brasil no tiene nin-
