Senator Anderson Announces Availability of Senate Fellowships

Miss La Mesa and Miss Santee Seek Participants LA MESA — Saturday, March 4, in the new theater at Helix Charter High School in La Mesa, the cities of La Mesa and Santee will hold the Miss La Mesa and Miss Santee scholarship pageants. The organization is currently seeking outgoing residents ages 6-26 to participate in a program that has been a tradition in the cities since the late 1960’s and is an outstanding mentoring program for young women. The pageants are sponsored by the local Chambers of Commerce and focus on community service, networking, improving public speaking and interview skills and overall personal growth. There is no swimsuit competition. The Princess & Jr. Miss program is open to girls 6-12 years old. Those enrolled in this program will not compete for a title. Instead all of our Princess & Jr. Miss participants will receive a sash and crown and will be invited to participate in the show on pageant night as well as attend large community events throughout the year. Contestants ages 12-26 will be scored on personal interview, speech, physical fitness, poise and personality, evening gown, and on-stage impromptu question. Pageant photographers will present the Miss Photogenic award, contestants will vote for the Miss Congeniality award and a local educator will choose a winner for our essay-writing contest. During the three rehearsals leading up to the pageant, all participants will receive group and one-on-one training for things like interview preparation, stage presence, public speaking, wardrobe consultation and more. Whether this is your first pageant or you are a pageant pro, the goal is to have everyone walk away pageant night feeling accomplished and having gained lifelong skills. The 2017 Miss La Mesa and Miss Santee winners will receive a prize package including a college scholarship, paid entry into the 2018 Miss San Diego Cities Pageant and the once in a lifetime opportunity to serve as an ambassador for their city. Throughout their reign, winners will attend grand openings, parades, summer concerts, charity events and chamber functions. Interested participants can visit their website www.4PointsEvents.com or contact pageant Director, Sierra Billock at 619-672-0688 or via email Sierra@4PointsEvents.com. An orientation about the pageant will be held Sunday, Jan. 15 at Santee City Hall Building 8 at 1pm. Anyone interested in participating is welcome to join and learn more!

SACRAMENTO — Senator Joel Anderson announced the availability of applications for the 2017-2018 California Senate Fellows program. The program provides college graduates an opportunity to become full-time Senate staff members at the state Capitol in Sacramento for 11 months beginning in October 2017. Fellows are assigned to the personal or committee staff of a Senator and also participate in academic seminars with Senators, senior staff, journalists, lobbyists, and state government officials. The fellowship program is jointly operated by the California Senate and the Center for California Studies at Sacramento State University. Fellows are paid a stipend of $2,627 per month plus health, vision, and dental benefits. They earn 6 units of graduate credit from Sacramento State for the academic portion of the program. “Being a Fellow provides an excellent opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge of the legislative process,” said Anderson. “Whether your career California State goals are in the public or Senator Joel Anderson private sector, the Senate Fellows program provides valuable training.” Former Senate Fellows include current members of Congress and the California Legislature, judges, and numerous other elected officials and community leaders. Anderson said Fellows experience the broad range of activities conducted in busy Senate offices. Responsibilities include researching public policy issues, helping develop legislative proposals, analyzing and staffing legislation, assisting with constituent inquiries and casework, participating in meetings as the Senator’s representative, writing press releases and speeches, and performing other delegated tasks. A five-week orientation at the beginning of the program provides background on state government, the legislative process, and major policy issues. Anyone who will be at least 20 years of age and a graduate of a four-year college or university by September 1, 2017, is eligible to apply. There is no preferred major. Individuals with advanced degrees and those in mid-career are encouraged to apply. Brochures can be requested online. For more information, or to apply, visit the Senate Fellows web site www.csus.edu/ calst/senate. The deadline for submitting application is February 13. Eighteen Fellows will be selected in May after an initial screening of applications and a subsequent panel interview of finalists.

So Cal Focus with Thomas D. Elias Possible Muslim Registry Raises Moral Questions

T

he scene was a festive holiday-season dinner with guests from both Northern and Southern California. But the discussion grew serious as the question arose of whether President-elect Donald Trump would really try to set up a national registry of citizen and resident Muslims in America as an anti-terror tactic – which he advocated while running for office – with no one knowing what might come next. “If that happens, I would immediately go and register as one,” declared one youthful woman, a non-Islamic mother of two small children. Days later, more than 600 computer engineers and programmers for California-based high-tech giants like Google and Twitter said they would refuse to take part in setting up or operating such a database, even if it cost them their high-paying jobs. This defiant list has now surpassed 2,000. Trump’s staff, however, says he never advocated a registry based on religion, but when asked about it in an NBC-TV interview in November 2015, he said ““Oh I would certainly implement that. Absolutely.” All this evoked the actions of Danish citizens when German leader Adolf Hitler ordered a roundup of occupied Denmark’s 7,800 Jews on Oct. 1, 1943, in the midst of his World War II campaign to exterminate Europe’s 6 million Jews. Christian Danes first alerted all Danish Jews to hide, then staged a two-night boatlift taking more than 7,200 Jews across a narrow strait from Helsingor (Shakespeare’s Elsinore), north of Copenhagen, to neutral Sweden. The Danes’ King Christian X became a historic hero by actively encouraging this. It’s uncertain that Trump will order a Muslim registry, although his transition team’s chief advisor on immigration, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, has said he advised Trump to establish a list of immigrants and visitors from countries where terrorist organizations are active. Read: refugees and others from predominantly Islamic places like Syria, Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Libya, Morocco, Tunisia, Sudan, Somalia and Algeria. Some Trump allies cited as a legal precedent for such a registry the roundup and internment of Japanese-American Nisei in remote, primitive camps just after the Pearl Harbor attack that brought America into World War II. Never mind that the U.S. government under President Ronald Reagan long ago apologized and paid reparations for those actions. Kobach, a longtime anti-illegal immigrant activist, wrote Arizona’s 2010 SB 1070, which required police to stop anyone who looked like an immigrant (read: Latino) and demand documents showing they were authorized to be in this country. Courts later declared the law unconstitutionally discriminatory. Any registry or database of the type Trump proposed during his campaign would probably need cooperation from America’s large high-tech companies, most headquartered in this state, just as President George W. Bush’s post-9/11 effort to track phone traffic by potential terrorists needed cooperation by the likes of AT&T and Verizon. But the subject did not arise when more than a dozen mostly-Californian high-tech moguls met with Trump in mid-December. At first, only California-based Twitter and Facebook took refusal stances on any such Muslim registry. Later, Apple, Google, IBM, Uber and Microsoft jointed them, possibly prodded by the stances of thousands of their employees. When TheIntercept.com, a self-described “adversarial journalism” website, asked major tech firms what they would do about a registry, Microsoft initially said “We’re not going to talk about hypotheticals at this point,” and provided a link to a company blog advocating “not just diversity among all the men and women who work here, but inclusive culture.” What several companies at first did not see, but Twitter and Facebook apparently understood right away, was that if they said nothing they would be tacitly approving the idea of a religion-based list. The moral question here is similar to what confronted Danes in 1943, even if the potential consequences for people resisting a Muslim list or database are far less threatening than the shoot-on-sight tactics carried out by Nazi SS troopers when they encountered or caught someone defying an occupation regime order. The bottom line: Tarring all Muslims as potential terrorists would be a form of discrimination somewhat comparable to rounding up America’s Nisei, especially since the vast majority of Islamic-Americans have absolutely no interest in or record of promoting anything anti-American.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Q A

. Is ALS an old-person’s disease, or does it affect every age group?

.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) usually strikes between the ages of 40 and 70, but there have been cases of it in young adults, children and older people. The average age for getting ALS is 55. ALS is known as Lou Gehrig’s disease in the USA. Gehrig, who played baseball for the New York Yankees, died of the disease in 1941. In other countries, ALS is often called motor neuron disease. It is not contagious. ALS destroys nerve cells—motor neurons—that control muscle cells. In most cases, the cause is unknown. As the motor neurons are lost, the muscles they control weaken. Eventually, people with ALS are paralyzed. Amyotrophic means “no muscle nourishment.” Lateral identifies the affected areas in the spinal cord. Sclerosis refers to the scarring or hardening in the region. ALS doesn’t directly affect involuntary muscles, so the heart, digestive tract, bladder and sexual organs continue to work. Hearing, vision, touch and intellectual ability generally remain normal. Pain is not a major component of ALS. The most common form of the disease in the United States is “sporadic” ALS. It may affect anyone, anywhere. “Familial” ALS is inherited. Only about five to 10 percent of all ALS patients appear to have the inherited form of ALS. In those families, there is a 50 percent chance each offspring will inherit the gene mutation and may develop the disease. Respiratory problems usually kill those with ALS in three to five years after diagnosis. About ten percent of those with ALS live more than ten years. Some survive for many years. For example, the famed British physicist Stephen Hawking has had ALS since the 1960s. In a small number of people, ALS mysteriously stops. The usual early symptoms of ALS are weakness or spasms in a limb, and trouble speaking or swallowing. After the initial symptoms, the disease may progress in the following way: cramping of muscles, demitted use of the limbs; thick speech and difficulty projecting the voice; difficulty breathing. Doctors begin testing for ALS by checking muscle and nerve function. The next step is usually an electromyogram (EMG). This test measures the signals that run between nerves and muscles and the electrical activity inside muscles. Additional tests may include a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, a spinal tap between two lower vertebrae, blood tests and muscle biopsies. The drug Rilutek (riluzole) and the NeuRx Diaphragm Pacing System have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for treating ALS. The NeuRx Diaphragm Pacing System™ is a medical device used to help ALS patients breathe. However, there are other treatments to help people with ALS. These include physical and occupational therapy, respiratory therapy and assisted ventilation, speech therapy, nutritional and emotional support. There are devices, too, such as special grips for writing implements and eating utensils, canes, supportive braces, walkers, wheelchairs and scooters.

Living with MS with Dee Dean

Positive Phase III Results of Genentech’s Investigational MS Medicine OCREVUS™ (Ocrelizumab)

G

enentech, a member of the Roche G r o u p r e c e n t l y announced that data from three Phase III studies of its investigational medicine OCREVUS™ (ocrelizumab) – the OPERA I and OPERA II studies in relapsing Multiple Sclerosis (RMS) and the ORATORIO study in primary progressive Multiple Sclerosis (PPMS) – were published in the December 21, 2016 online issue of the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM). “These publications that indicate that B cells play a central role in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) are the result of a longstanding collaboration between the scientific community and industry for the benefit of people with MS” Data from the OCREVUS Phase III studies showed consistent and clinically meaningful reductions in major markers of disease activity and progression compared with Rebif® (interferon beta1a) in RMS and with placebo in PPMS. The primary endpoint was met in all three studies, which includes relative reduction of annualized relapse rate in the RMS studies and relative reduction in the progression of clinical disability sustained for at least 12 weeks in the PPMS study. Key secondary endpoints in all three studies were also met, including multiple measures of disability progression and brain lesion activity. “These publications that indicate that B cells play a central role in MS are the result of a longstanding collaboration between the scientific community and industry for the benefit of people with MS,” said Stephen Hauser, M.D., Chair of the Scientific Steering Committee of the OPERA studies, Director of the Weill Institute for Neurosciences and Chair of the Department of Neurology

at the University of California, San Francisco. “In the OPERA I and OPERA II RMS studies, OCREVUS consistently and significantly reduced disease activity and disability progression compared with a standard-of-care high-dose interferon while demonstrating a favorable safety profile. The consistency of these pioneering data, the effect seen in these clinical studies and the favorable safety profile may support treating MS earlier with a high-efficacy disease-modifying medicine.” Data from two identical studies (OPERA I and OPERA II) in RMS showed OCREVUS was superior to high-dose Rebif (interferon beta-1a), a wellestablished MS therapy, in reducing three major markers of disease activity: relapses (primary endpoint), disability progression and brain lesion activity over the two-year controlled treatment period. In a separate PPMS study (ORATORIO), OCREVUS significantly reduced the risk of confirmed disability progression sustained for at least 12 weeks (primary endpoint) and 24 weeks (a key secondary endpoint) compared with placebo. OCREVUS treatment was also superior to placebo on other key measures of disease progression in PPMS patients including the time required to walk 25 feet, the volume of chronic brain lesions and brain volume loss. “OCREVUS is the first and only investigational medicine to significantly reduce the progression of physical disability in primary progressive MS in a large Phase III study,” said Xavier Montalban, M.D., Ph.D., Chair of the Scientific Steering Committee of the ORATORIO study and Professor of Neurology and Neuroimmunology at Vall d’Hebron University Hospital, Research Institute and Cemcat, Barcelona, Spain. “Over the last decade, other molecules have tried and failed to demonstrate efficacy for

PPMS, so the positive results for OCREVUS mark an important step in our understanding of this highly disabling form of the disease.” The OCREVUS safety profile was evaluated in the three Phase III studies. In the RMS studies, the proportion of patients with serious adverse events and serious infections was similar between the OCREVUS and interferon beta1a treatment groups. In the PPMS study, the proportion of patients with adverse events and serious adverse events was similar between the OCREVUS and placebo treatment groups. Safety analyses continue in the open-label extension studies in both RMS and PPMS. Marketing applications for OCREVUS, submitted for RMS and PPMS, have been accepted and are currently under review by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). As previously announced, OCREVUS was granted Priority Review Designation by the FDA with a targeted action date of March 28, 2017. OCREVUS™ is the proprietary name submitted to the FDA for the investigational medicine ocrelizumab.

Board-certified Ear, Nose, and Throat physician Dr. S. Cherukuri, a graduate of the prestigious University of Michigan School of Medicine, built a very successful practice helping patients with hearing problems. “I was often frustrated by the fact that many of my patients could benefit from the use of a hearing aid, but unfortunately couldn’t afford one. I then made it my mission to change this, making quality digital hearing aids affordable for anyone who needs one.”

It’s Nearly Invisible “I knew when I developed a new line of hearing aids that one of the most important requirements would be for the device to be hard for others to see,” said Dr. Cherukuri. “One of the biggest objections people have to wearing a hearing aid is that they are embarrassed. Our design helps people get past this concern.” Digital Hearing Aid Outperforms Competitors The new medical grade hearing aid is called MDHearingAid® AIR. It is sleek, lightweight, and full of the same advanced digital technology found in higher-priced devices, but at a small fraction of the price. “I couldn’t understand why everything in the digital world kept coming down in price, like computers, TVs, and DVD players, but not digital hearing aids,” Cherukuri said. Once the doctor started to realize his dream and was able to produce a device that costs 90% less, the industry was turned upside down.

Wisdom for

EVERYDAY LIFE

with Pastor Drew

Why Jesus?

G

Part V

reetings beloved of the Lord, this week as we have come to the end of another Christmas season, we will also conclude our looking at examining the question, “Why Jesus?” We will be looking specifically at why Jesus came into the world. Over the past weeks we have looked at from the Word of God the Bible, reasons for which Jesus came: He came into the world to save call sinners to repentance; to save sinners; to be and bring light to those (us) that are in darkness; He did not come to judge the world but to save it; to take away our sins; so that we might live (truly live) through Him; to bring peace and good will toward all men, between a righteous, holy God and sinful rebellious man; to fulfill prophecy. This week we will look at yet one more reason for which Jesus came into the world, Hebrews 10:5-10 “Therefore, when He (Jesus) came into the world, He said: “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, but a body You have prepared for Me. In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You had no pleasure. Then I said, “Behold, I have come-- In the volume of the book it is written of Me-- To do Your will, O God.”’ Previously saying, “Sacrifice and offering, burnt offerings, and offerings for sin You did not desire, nor had pleasure in them” (which are offered according to the law), then He said, “Behold, I have come to do Your will, O God.” He takes away the first that He may establish the second. By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.” Our text clearly states why Jesus came into the world, “To do the will of the Father.” In John 8:26-30 “I have many things to say and to judge concerning you, but He who sent Me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I heard from Him.” They did not understand that He spoke to them of the Father. Then Jesus said to them, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and that I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things. And He who sent Me is with Me. The Father has not left Me alone, for I always do those things that please Him.” As He spoke these words, many believed in Him.” Also Jesus said of Himself in John 5:30, “I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me.” And in John 6:36-40, “ But I said to you that you have seen Me and yet do not believe. All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.” Jesus was completely submitted and surrendered to the will of the Father that He might redeem us from the curse of sin which is death through the giving of Himself on the Cross. Also, through His submission to the Father, He showed us what life is to be like for us as we entrust ourselves completely to the will of God. Through His death and resurrection He both redeems us and restores us to the right relationship that His creation (us) is to have with our Creator (God). Man in his rebellious sinful state thinks that life lived by one’s own will and desires, submitted to no one but one’s self is what life is all about. Nothing could be further from the truth, it is one of the worst forms of bondage.

SDSU BEATwith Steve Dolan

SDSU Online Speech-Language Pathology Program

T

o meet the demand for San Diego State University’s Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences (SLHS) graduate program – ranked No. 1 in California and No. 24 in the nation by U.S. News and World Report – SDSU will offer two new courses in its online Speech-Language Pathology Essentials program during the spring 2017 semester. Spring three-unit courses are SLHS 300 Introduction to Language Science and SLHS 320 Phonetics. • SLHS 300 Introduction to Language Science includes structure, acquisition, processing, and neurological organization of language in typical and disordered communication. • SLHS 320 Phonetics covers principles of speech production and practical skills in discriminating and transcribing sounds of various dialects in English and other languages, as well as clinical populations. Marin Fisher — an SDSU alumna with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology —completed the first two courses offered when the program debuted during the fall 2016 semester: Hearing Science and Anatomy and Physiology of Speech. “I think the biggest strength of the program would be the convenience without sacrificing the amount and quality of learning,” Fisher said. “I feel like I gained as much knowledge in the eight weeks as I would have in a full semester, but I was able to fit it around my schedule. The instructors were very knowledgeable on their subjects,” she added. “They were also very responsive to emails and always got back to me in a timely manner.” The credit program prepares students to apply to graduate programs in Speech-Language Pathology. Students may take individual courses as needed to meet prerequisite requirements for their desired graduate program. The curriculum is non-cohort and is led by lecturers from SDSU’s SLHS department. Each eight-week online course costs $317 per unit. The courses are offered through SDSU’s College of Health and Human Services, in conjunction with SDSU’s College of Extended Studies. The program is open to individuals not currently enrolled in an SDSU degree program. For more information, visit neverstoplearning.net/SLP, email jbarlow@mail.sdsu.edu, or call (619) 594-0243. Dolan hosts a one-hour sports talk radio show Tuesdays from 6 to 7 p.m. on East County’s “The Mountain – 107.9 FM.” The show may also be heard on the Internet at www.themountainfm.com

Deadline to receive applications for both scholarship programs is 3 p.m., Friday, Feb. 10, 2017. For more information and to obtain the criteria and applications for both scholarships, visit www.grossmonthealthcare. org/operations/scholarship-programs.
