Opinion SB1070: INHUMANA Y RACISTA ¿Puede pasar esto en California? Por Rosario Vital El Observador

L

a firma de la SB1070 ha causado un gran revuelto en Arizona y en todos los Estados Unidos. En el Área de la Bahía ciudades como San Francisco, San José se oponen a una ley que discrimina y atenta contra la violación de los derechos humanos y civiles. En San Francisco la Junta de Supervisores se ha sumado a boicotear al estado de Arizona negando toda contratación y negocios con sede en este lugar. La ciudad de Oakland se sumó a este boicot. En San José el Concejal Sam Licardo del Distrito 3 pide que no teman a la policía porque ellos no deportan a los indocumentados. Por su parte George Shirakawa, Supervisor del Condado de Santa Clara emitió una resolución en la cual condenan la firma de la SB1070. "La reciente aprobación de la SB 1070 está fuera de los valores americanos. Como estadounidenses, creemos en la familia, la igualdad, el derecho de fidelidad a este gran país, y la prosperidad mediante el trabajo. Ahora es el momento para la administración Obama y al Congreso arregle el sistema roto de inmigración afirma Patricia Díaz, Directora Ejecutiva de SIREN. ¿Por qué es racista la SB1070? La ley establece que un agente de policía en Arizona puede sin orden de aprehensión, arrestar a una persona, si el oficial cree que esa persona se encuentra en forma ilegal en Estados Unidos. El nuevo estatuto también declara como delito

el contratar a un jornalero en la calle, al criminalizar tanto a quien le ofrece trabajo, como al que lo solicita. La ley castiga además a cualquier persona que transporte a un inmigrante indocumentado, aun cuando este sea su familiar, de forma que hijos ciudadanos o residentes legales no podrán viajar en automóvil junto con padres o hermanos indocumentados. Amenazas El congresista Duncan Hunter de San Diego propuso deportar a los hijos de indocumentados nacidos con nacionalidad estadounidense, tras considerar que la ley antiinmigrante de Arizona es "un fabuloso punto de partida". De otro lado dicen que en Utah se quiere implementar algo similar que ha hecho Arizona. ¿Puedo esto pasar en California? Dicen que Arizona y California es como la noche y el día en relación al trato de los inmigrantes indocumentados. Considerando que aproximadamente 2 / 3 de los residentes de Arizona expresan su apoyo a la SB 1070, la ley estatal más anti-inmigrante en el país. Sin embargo una reciente encuesta en California muestra que 2 / 3 de los californianos apoya la legalización para los inmigrantes indocumentados. Por otra parte, los californianos han pasado por una propuesta inconstitucional contra los inmigrantes - la Proposición 187 en 1994 - y aprendió que sólo el gobierno federal puede promulgar y aplicar la ley federal. La inmigración es una ley federal.

Unreasonable Suspicion in Arizona

I

have a reasonable suspicion that per Arizona's new SB 1070, police will unreasonably suspect many Latinos living in Arizona of being undocumented. I believe my suspicion is reasonable because legally, to reasonably suspect someone of being undocumented requires articulable facts that cannot be based upon color of skin, race, ethnicity, or language spoken. This leaves us primarily with dress code and mannerisms as the only articulable ways to identify a person's legal status in this country. When Arizona's police are trained (at taxpayers' expense) to determine that a hat, a belt, shoes, the use of hands in speech, etc. amount to undocumented status, we are clearly going down a path that casts a wide net of cultural customs that will include many U.S. cit-

izens. When I worked at Catholic Charities in the early 1990s, indiscriminate Border Patrol sweeps were a common occurrence at Story and King Roads. After a young legal male Mexican wearing a distinctive hat from the State of Michoacan was unlawfully arrested in a sweep, I recommended that he carry a tennis racket to break the stereotype. It worked-he never had a problem with his civil liberties again. Millions of persons of Latino descent in Arizona had better start carrying tennis rackets. Richard Hobbs, Esq. San Jose

BASIC CHOICES TO BE MADE By Hilbert Morales - El Observador

A

basic choice to be made by all citizens is to ensure being registered to vote by May 24, 2010. The election on Tuesday, June 8th is coming up very soon, so be certain to take the time to review the official voter information pamphlet mailed by the Registrar of Voters. It is best to review the official information presented on the Registrar of Voter's web site: www.sccvote.org. Recently, the California Secretary of State's Office mailed out the 'California Statewide Direct Primary Election, Tuesday, June 8, 2010 Pamphlet,’ which is the official voter information guide. Make a choice to read it because it does contain official information rather than the political rhetoric presented by candidates’ direct mail pieces. Everybody faces many basic choices which need to be made. So many choices that it is easy to become unable to do anything. Especially when one doesn’t do some prior preparation. An essential choice is to spend the time and effort to become acquainted with all election issues. It is very easy to decide nothing can be done about the global economy and weather, the national debt, the need for Wall Street financial reform, and a regulation system for all insurance firms. These are all very complicated big issues whose costs eventually trickle down to the consumer who pays. And there are more issues such as home mortgage foreclosures, lack of credit for small businesses, the need to upgrade our infrastructures (roads, bridges, etc.), our drinking water supply systems, the transition to alternative energy, and comprehensive immigration reform, etc. So let's begin at the local level. Just know that basic choices pertaining to all these issues are being made by your elected representatives In the City of San Jose, for the first time ever, the Hispanic community has four Hispanic candidates vying to represent District 5. They are J. Manuel Herrera, Magdalena Carrasco, Xavier Campos, and Aaron Resendez. In District 7 candidate Rudy Rodriguez is trying to unseat Madison Nguyen, the incumbent.

In District 9 Donald Rocha is a candidate. Sam Liccardo (District 3) and Pete Constant (District 1) deserve re-election. In the County of Santa Clara, Board of Supervisors, District 1, Dr. Peter Arellano (Gilroy) and Teresa Alvarado are the Hispanic candidates. Arellano has served as a member of the Gilroy City Council and is an expert in health care issues which is a body of knowledge needed by the Board of Supervisors. Teresa Alvarado is the daughter of former Supervisor Blanca Alvarado; former Executive Director of the Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley and married to Jesse Morales. Another county level election choice to be made is whether to elect a Hispanic, Richard Calderon as Sheriff. The current District Attorney, Dolores Carr, a Latina, is being challenged by Deputy District Attorney Jeff Rosen. At the State of California level, for Assembly District 23, Nora Campos is a candidate, who, if elected, will replace the current incumbent, The Honorable Joe Coto. She is the sister of Xavier Campos, a candidate for the seat of District 5, City of San Jose. An unexpected candidate for Assembly District 23 is Patricia Martinez Roach, a teacher and ESUHSD board member. A former local superintendent, Franklin McKinley School District, Larry Aceves, is a candidate for State Superintendent of Public Instruction. He deserves your support. Abel Maldonado (R) is a candidate for Lt. Governor and whose interim appointment by Governor Schwarzenegger was held up for weeks by the State Assembly. Of great interest to Hispanics is the contest for Attorney General which has Alberto Torrico and Rocky Delgadillo as candidates. It would be best for the Hispanic citizen to actively participate by registering to vote (deadline: May 24th). That ensures that your cultural values will be at the table when public policy is being debated and established. It also establishes you as a constituent whose opinions will be heard by politicians who want to stay in office. Those are the basic choices to be made.

A Hero to All By Osvaldo Castillo El Observador

W

hen community members in Santa Clara think of Jim McEntee, they remember a kind, warm-hearted, and caring individual, who's work has and will continue to improve the lives of those living in Santa Clara County. On Friday, May 7, county residents and officials will pay tribute to McEntee by unveiling the James P. McEntee Plaza at the Santa Clara County Government Center. "Jim was a wonderful person who worked hard to bring people together to solve issues peacefully," said McEntee's wife Ann. "He loved everyone no matter who they were. Everyone was important to him." McEntee served as Director of Human Relations for the County of Santa Clara for over 27 years. He also started food banks and worked with various religious and ethic groups throughout the county. "He stood for peacemaking, nonviolence and social justice, respect for diversity and all cultures, and civil and human rights for all," said Andrea Villasenor-Perry, Vice Chair of the Jim McEntee Legacy Committee. "He was a man of deep religious faith, a servant leader, passionate in his love for his family and community." Prior to working with Santa Clara County, McEntee was a priest serving migrant farmworkers in Morgan Hill, working closely with Cesar Chรกvez and the UFW. "I believe his dedication to peace and social

justice came from his deep faith in God and his desire to live out gospel values. His life's work was so much more than a profession/ career - it was a ministry," Perry said. "He understood his relative position of privilege in society and knew that he was called to stand courageously as an ally, by the side of those with less power and privilege. He understood the evils of racism, classicism, homophobia, etc. and he preached a gospel of inclusion, unity, and respect for all, even and most importantly in the course of diametrically opposed community opinions and viewpoints." The plaza dedicated to McEntee is a reminder of all the hard work that he did for the community and a reminder that the community as a whole must continue to work hard to bring justice to all. "We desperately need reminders, especially here in Silicon Valley, of what is most important in life - not status, wealth, power, consuming but, love for family, love and service to others, fighting for peace and justice for all. Especially at this time of economic and political recession, we need to celebrate what represents the best of what we can be as human beings," Perry said. The Jim McEntee Legacy Committee also offers scholarships to community college students who have been accepted to four-year colleges. "The students selected have all had to over come difficult situations in order to make their lives better," Ann McEntee said. For more information visit www.jimmcenteelegacy.org.

Por Rosario Vital El Observador l Senado de los EE.UU. presentó un esquema de lo que pretende introducir pronto como una reforma migratoria integral. La propuesta titulada "Propuesta conceptual sobre inmigración" es un documento de 26 páginas al cual El Observador tuvo acceso. Este document está respaldado por los senadores Charles Schumer (D-NY), Robert Menéndez (D-NJ) y Harry Reid (D-NV). La propuesta incluye un programa de legalización para los 10,8 millones de personas indocumentadas que les permitiria trabajar y viajar legalmente durante 8 años, después de lo cual podrían pedir la residencia permanente. Mientras tanto, los esposos e hijos que se encuentran en el exterior podrían inmigrarse legalmente a los EE.UU. Un inmigrante en los EE.UU. el día que se presenta la ley,-que todavia no ha sido presentada,-sería eligible para solicitar la legalización. Otros puntos positivos incluídos en el esquema incluyen los siguientes: * Los esposos e hijos menores de inmigrantes serian considerados como familiares inmediatos y no tendrian que esperar para inmigrarse * El número de inmigrantes que podría entrar de cada pais se subiría del 7% al 10%

E

* Una persona del mismo género podría inmigrarse como esposo o esposa * El Acto de los Sueños (DREAM Act) permitiría a los hijos indocumentados conseguir la mica a través de los estudios superiores * Los trabajadores agrícolas podrian conseguir la mica a través de AgJobs * Se establecería una visa provisional para trabajadores temporales en el pais que podría convertirse en la residencia permanente * Algunas leyes estatales como las de Arizona serían ilegales Por otro lado, este esquema propone la mano dura para inmigrantes que se quedan o que vienen al pais en condición indocumentada para futuro. "Las propuestas de una tarjeta de seguro social biométrica, más tecnologia y más agentes en la frontera practicamente significaría el fin de la migración sin papeles a los EE.UU", según Richard Hobbs, abogado y Director Asociado de SIREN. "Con esta propuesta se criminaliza a personas humildes que no representan ninguna amenza a la seguridad de los EE.UU." dijo Hobbs quien al mismo tiempo elogia el Senado por tomar esta acción inicial, pero se preocupa por el alto costo de la propuesta, la espera de 8 años antes de poder pedir la residencia permanente para personas indocumentadas, y la explotación y discriminación que el cierre de la

Saving Washington United Youth Center ter. She hopes that her sisters can be able to take advantage of the same opportunities. People go to the center for different reasons, but the main reason why people are fighting for the center is because it saves the lives of many teenagers that otherwise would be running off and getting in trouble. "Everybody is safe here, in the good times and bad there's always somebody to talk with and trust," said Aaron Carrera. Carrera has been going to the center for seven years and sees all the benefits the different programs provide. He knows the importance of having the center around for youth in his shoes. It takes $400,000 a year to run the center. The center has self-defense classes, it offers English classes and it also has a computer center. It's not just a place to play handball or pool, it's considered a home to many people. "I have received many trainings from which I have benefited so much," said Ana Maria

ver 200 people showed up in an effort to prevent the Washington United Youth Center from permanently closing its doors. The center was originally scheduled to close on June 30, but with summer around the corner

the center was granted two more months, moving the closing date to August 31. "I can now say that thanks to the Washington United Youth Center, I have a scholarship to go to UCLA,� said Vanessa Romo. “A big part of my success was due to them." Romo has been going to the center since age 13 and is now 17 and is very grateful for the cen-

Ramirez. Ramirez considers the center a home and remembers when it started out as a single office and how the area in general had the worst reputation in the neighborhood. She hopes that everyone comes together to fight to keep the center open. In an effort to keep the center open, envelopes were given to people who wanted to make any donation. They want to show the city that they don't want free services, they are willing to help in any way they can. "I want to encourage everyone to come and participate," said Councilmember Sam Liccardo. "We'd love to see you at city hall to demonstrate your support for this community and its center." There is a march being organized for May 18. People will be meeting at 5:30pm at the Washington United Youth Center and will march to City Hall and share personal stories. Everyone is invited to take part of the protest.

National Endowment for the Arts Awards Grant to San José Mariachi Education Program San José, CA he Mexican Heritage Corporation, the non-profit producer of the annual San Jose Mexican Heritage and Mariachi Festival, announced the organization's selection by the National Endowment for the Arts to receive a prestigious NEA grant in support of Learning in the Arts for Children and Youth. The amount of the grant is $21,000 and supports MHC's year - round mari-

T

achi music education program in San Jose schools. These funds will be leveraged with earned revenue from the annual San Jose Mexican Heritage and Mariachi Festival and additional funds from philanthropy to support mariachi education in several public schools in San Jose in 2010. This is the second NEA grant to MHC in one year; the Mexican Heritage Festival also received a grant of $30,000. Total funding from the NEA in support of MHC programs in FY 2010 is $51,000.

Learning in the Arts grants support indepth, curriculum-based arts education experiences that occur over an extended period. Projects must provide participatory learning and engage students with skilled artists, teachers, and excellent art. MHC's mariachi education program provides students and teachers the opportunity to experience live performance by mariachi musicians and to study and learn how to perform the music of the mariachi in a standard's based setting.

Riding Through San Jose

By Osvaldo Castillo El Observador n Wednesday, May 19, hundreds of professional bicyclists will be riding through San Jose as part of the Amgen Tour of California. Stage 4 of the bicycle tour will begin in San Jose and end in Modesto. This will be the fourth year that San Jose will be featured in the bicycle tour. “The Tour of California is the most exciting bike tour in the country,” said San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed. “It is going to be exciting seeing all these talented athletes here in San Jose. One of these athletes is Lance Armstrong.” Carl Guardino, CEO of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group, who rides his bike several miles from his house to his work everyday, said he was excited to have the tour pass through San Jose because in will remind

O

people of the importance of staying fit. “The Amgen Tour of California will give San Jose a sense of community and promotes better health,” Guardino said. San Jose will also be holding its own bicycling event in conjunction with the Amgen Tour of California. The San Jose Cycling Classic will be held May 15-20 throughout San Jose and will feature several bicycling events ranging from bike safety to fitness. “The Fit for Learning Initiative will be participating in the San Jose Cycling Classic and in help fighting childhood obesity,” Guardino said. Other events that are part of the San Jose Cycle Classic include Bike to Work Day (May 15), Get Back on Your Bike! (May 18), and The SunPower King of the Mountain Time Trial. “We hope these two events will get people motivated to start riding their bikes more

often,” Reed said. “There are several places they can ride their bikes such as the many creek trails we have throughout the city. This can be a fun activity for the family.” The 2010 Amgen Tour of California will be staged over eight days and will travel more than 800 miles of California’s scenic roads, highways and coastline drives. The race will be running from May 16-23 and will visit 16 host cities for official stage starts and finishes. Host cities for the eight stages are Nevada City, Sacramento, Davis, Santa Rosa, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, San Jose, Modesto, Visalia, Bakersfield, Pasadena, Big Bear Lake, Los Angeles, Thousand Oaks/Westlake Village and Agoura Hills.

Protesting Arizona's SB 1070

By Cinthia Rodriguez t's been a week since Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona signed the bill on illegal immigration into law. And over the past few days people have been protesting all over the nation and in San Jose as well. The Silicon Valley Alliance for Immigration Reform and MAIZ organized a small vigil on Monday, April 26, over 150 people protested on the corner of Story and King Road in east side San Jose. The people are outraged about what's going on in Arizona and voiced solidarity with the people of Arizona. "Immigrants are a vibrant force in our culture, economy and society. They come here to work, to be reunited with family or to avoid persecution. The recent passage of SB 1070 is out of tune with our American values. As Americans, we believe in family, equality, the right of allegiance to this great country, and prosperity through hard work. NOW is the time for the Obama administration and Congress to step up to the plate and fix our broken immigration system in a thoughtful, well-reasoned and humane manner. By stalling immigration reform we are undermining the fabric by which the United States was formed," states Patricia Diaz, Executive Director of SIREN. The law requires officials and agencies of the state and political subdivisions to fully comply with and assist in the enforcement of federal immigration laws and gives county attorneys subpoena power in certain investigations of employers. It establishes crimes involving trespassing by illegal aliens, stopping to hire or soliciting work under specified circumstances, and transporting, harboring or concealing unlawful aliens, and their respective penalties, as stated in the fact sheet provided by the Arizona

I

State Legislature. Opponents of the law have called it an open invitation for harassment and discrimination against Latinos regardless of their citizenship status. Not carrying the proper identification or required papers is now a crime and anyone suspected can be stopped. The law will take effect in August, but before that, demonstrators remind people to attend the march on May 1. Everyone will meet at Story and King Roads in San Jose, and the march will begin at 4pm.

Regalemos Regalos Reales a Nuestros Niños Marisol Muñoz-Kiehne, PhD l celebrar el Día del Niño, recordemos que "No todo lo que brilla es oro." El mejor regalo para nuestros niños no se vende en la juguetería, sino que, como asevera el refrán popular: "El tiempo es oro." ¡Ningún regalo es más valioso que el tiempo que dedicamos a nuestros niños! Nuestros niños y hogares son bombardeados por ofertas de una multitud de productos que prometen traerle sonrisas y buenos ratos a quienes los compren: juguetes de todo tipo, videojuegos y otros aparatos electrónicos, ropa de última moda, artículos llamativos, atractivos, divertidos, y algunos supuestamente educativos... Mas, como dice la canción de Franco de Vita: "No basta con comprarle curiosos objetos... No basta, cuando lo que necesita es afecto... Aprender a dar valor a las cosas, porque tú no le ser*s eterno... Los padres no les seremos eternos a nuestros niños. Lo que sí es eterno son los recuerdos de regalos significativos. ¿Qué hace memorable un regalo? ¿Qué regalos de su niñez recuerda usted? ¿Acaso recuerdan sus niños las cosa que recibieron el año pasado para el Día del Niño, su cumpleaños o Navidad? ¿Qué regalos valen la pena y la plata? Queremos que a nuestros hijos no les falte nada, mas aparte de complacer algún antojo, enseñémosles sobre regalos que valen mucho más,regalando de nuestro tiempo, ejemplo, talento, alimento, ¡y hasta sangre y órganos! Recomendaciones a la hora regalar: 1. Recordemos que los regalos verdadera-

A

mente valiosos no se compran ni se venden 2. Preparemos "certificados de tiempo" a ser compartido con la familia en actividades o paseos 3. Regalémosle a los niños oportunidades de participar en obras comunitarias o caritativas, regalando alimento y compartiendo sus pertenencias con los necesitados 4. Regalemos regalos únicos y personales, hechos a mano para, por, o con los niños 5. Iniciemos con otras familias intercambios de regalos ya usados, tales como ropa, libros, películas, y juguetes 6. Cultivemos los intereses y talentos de los niños regalándoles clases de música, deportes, artes marciales... 7. Enseñémosle a nuestros niños a usar la razón, no sólo la ilusión, al pedir regalos 8. No nos olvidemos de regalar libros para cualquier fecha especial 9. Tengamos en cuenta un presupuesto realista a la hora de hacer regalos 10.

A New Terrain on Which to Struggle By Cinthia Rodriguez - El Observador

O

n Wednesday, April 21, Angela Davis spoke to a group of students and teachers at the Morris Dailey Auditorium at San Jose State University where she discussed current events and her thoughts on them. The theme of her discussion was the creation of new terrain that has brought more freedom and everything that follows. "45 years ago people were convinced they were going to witness a revolution in the U.S.," said Angela Davis. "And that revolution didn't happen. We're still fighting capitalism and racism." She remembers having the urgency to organize to overturn capitalism. She revealed how hard it was to organize nationwide, how expensive a call would be and now everything is easier. She urged the students to use those instruments to their advantage and continue organizing. "The issues remain, the challenges remain, and we have to continue to build the kinds of movements that will allow us to make some progress, at least in the direction of educational reform," said Davis. The latest example of organized youth was the result of the latest presidential campaign. Davis believes that young adults made the difference in Obama's victory. She noticed that many Latinos and Blacks weren't too optimistic

and that all changed once young adults embraced Obama's message of hope. The night also gave all the listeners a better understanding of who Angela Davis is. Davis was hired at UCLA to teach Marxism and didn't think that joining the communist party would cost her job. She was wrong. She currently lives in Oakland and continues to be a feminist and is an advocate for change. "The most important civil rights movement today, is the movement to abolish all of the laws that proclaim people who simply want to have a better life, and they want to have a better life largely because their home countries have been destroyed by transnational capitalist corporations," said Davis. "So they're fleeing the effects of global capitalism." The new terrain has people struggling for their identity because of gender roles. People are struggling to live in a place where they are not welcomed, but are willing to risk it all. The new terrain is filled with homophobia and the environment also needs attention. There is more freedom now, but many problems as well. Davis asked her listeners to continue to organize, to use those social networks her generation didn't have and to organize even more effectively. Davis also believes that young people are much more willing to understand the connections between ideas and that's key to a successful revolution.

County Passes Nation's First Childhood Obesity Ordinance to Address Restaurant Toy Giveaways

S

an JosĂŠ -The Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors approved an ordinance proposed by Board President Ken Yea-

ger that is the first of its kind in the United States. The new law will combat childhood obesity by preventing restaurants from using toys and other


Health incentives to lure kids to meals that are high in fat, sugar and calories. Restaurants encourage children to choose specific menu items by linking them with free toys and other incentive items, and research shows that parents frequently make purchases based on requests made by children. In 2006, the Federal Trade Commission estimated that restaurants sold 1.2 billion meals accompanied by toys to children under 12. While there are currently no nutritional standards for meals marketed to children, a 2008 study by the Center for Science in the Public Interest found that 10 out of 12 meals exceeding the recommended caloric limits for children came with toys. "This ordinance levels the playing field," said Yeager. "It helps parents make the choices they want for their children without toys and other freebies luring them toward food that fails to meet basic nutritional standards." One in four youth in Santa Clara county are either overweight or obese, and one in three lowincome children in Santa Clara County between ages two and five are overweight or obese. Nationally, childhood obesity has tripled since the 1970s. Obesity is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer. Thirty percent of boys and 40% of girls born in 2000 will be diag-

www.el-observador.com | APRIL 30 - MAY 6, 2010 |15| nosed with Type 2 diabetes, which can result in the loss of, on average, 10-15 years of life. The ordinance imposes very specific, common-sense restrictions. Restaurants cannot use toys as rewards for buying foods that have excessive calories (more than 120 for a beverage, 200 for a single food item or 485 for a meal), excessive sodium (480 mg for a single food item or 600 mg for a meal), excessive fat (more than 35% of total calories from fat), or excessive sugar (more than 10% of calories from added sweeteners.) The criteria are based on nationally recognized standards for children's health created by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the Department of Agriculture (USDA) and recommendations for children's food published by the Institute of Medicine (IOM). The ordinance affects all restaurants in the unincorporated areas of Santa Clara County. Before going into effect, the ordinance requires a second reading that will happen at the May 11 Board of Supervisor's meeting. Restaurants will then be granted a 90-day grace period. During that time, restaurants will be given the opportunity offer alternative measures to meet the goals of the ordinance. If no suitable alternative is created and adopted by the Board of Supervisors, the ordinance will go into effect.

Cinco de Mayo Un gran motivo para celebrar

    en el CĂĄncer CĂĄĂĄncer        

Por Mario JimĂŠnez Castillo El Observador urante esta semana celebramos el "5 de mayo", fecha en la que se conmemora el triunfo de la Batalla de Puebla de 1862, ocasiĂłn en la que el ejĂŠrcito mexicano venciĂł a las fuerzas invasoras europeas. En muchas ciudades de los Estados Unidos se festeja este gran acontecimiento histĂłrico. AdemĂĄs de la celebraciĂłn tambiĂŠn se elogia la contribuciĂłn de los inmigrantes de origen mexicano a esta naciĂłn. Su gente cĂĄlida, hermosos paisajes, deslumbrantes ruinas arqueolĂłgicas y playas de ensueĂąo. MĂŠxico se ha destacado en el mundo por haber sido el terruĂąo de grandes artistas en todos los gĂŠneros como: Frida Kalho, MarĂ­a FĂŠlix, Octavio Paz, Pedro Infante, Diego Rivera, AgustĂ­n Lara, Dolores del RĂ­o y Jorge Negrete, por mencionar solamente a unas de sus mĂĄs cĂŠlebres figuras. Los extranjeros que visitamos MĂŠxico, retornamos enamorados del paĂ­s azteca, naciĂłn que cuenta con una basta cantidad de sitios turĂ­sticos, santuarios religiosos, modernas urbes, ciudades coloniales, montaĂąas de impresionante belleza, y lo mĂĄs memorable: la hospitalidad y manera de ser del mexicano, hace

Como todo gran paĂ­s, MĂŠxico se ha destacado por ser el trampolĂ­n que ha llevado a la fama a muchos artistas no solamente de AmĂŠrica latina, sino tambiĂŠn de EspaĂąa, Francia, Italia y muchas otras naciones. El paĂ­s cuenta con la televisora mĂĄs importante del mundo de habla hispana, asimismo es uno de los tres mayores productores de plata junto a Rusia y CanadĂĄ; uno de sus mayores productos de exportaciĂłn es el petrĂłleo, y una de sus principales divisas se obtiene del turismo ya que miles de extranjeros visitan el paĂ­s cada aĂąo. La catedral de Nuestra SeĂąora de Guadalupe es uno de los tres santuarios marianos mĂĄs visitados en el mundo entero. La exquisita gastronomĂ­a mexicana es reconocida con gusto en todos los rincones del planeta y es una de las mĂĄs completas. Tanto MĂŠxico como sus conciudadanos siempre le han dado la sazĂłn a los grandes eventos internacionales. Un mundial de fĂştbol, unas olimpiadas, un festival de pelĂ­culas, un festival musical o un concurso de belleza no estarĂ­a completo sin la participaciĂłn de MĂŠxico. Por eso declaramos con entusiasmo: " MĂŠxico lindo y querido". EscrĂ­bale a Mario a Novoeu28@gmail.com

Por Martín del Palacio arner Home Video ha decidido recordar a Pedro Infante con tres sets especiales con cuatro películas cada uno, los que llegarán a las tiendas de todo el país. El primero de ellos, "El comediante", incluye dos de los títulos más exitosos del actor, "Los tres García" y su secuela, "Vuelven los García", que estrenadas ambas en 1947, siguen las andanzas de tres primos que intentan conquistar el corazón de Lupita

W

(la actriz argentina radicada en México Marga López). En el set también se incluyen "¡Viva mi desgracia!", la película de 1944 en donde Infante es un Don Juan que persigue denodadamente a María Antonieta Pons, y "Arriba las mujeres", el divertido filme de 1943 de Carlos Orellana en donde un temprano Infante lucha con su mujer (Consuelo Guerrero de Luna) por el control del hogar.

Además, el set contiene "Escándalo de Estrellas", de 1944, dirigida por Rodríguez, y en la que Infante hace de un abogado que quiere convertirse en actor, acompañado de Blanquita Amaro y Florencio Castelló, y "Sobre las Olas", de 1950, basada en la vida del cantante Juventino Rosas, cuyo talento musical se vio opacada por su afición al alcohol. El tercer set, "El Amante", trae "La Oveja Negra", dirigida por Rodríguez y estrenada en 1949, y por la que Infante recibió una nominación al Ariel al Mejor Actor. El filme cuenta la historia de un hombre noble (Infante) que compite por la misma mujer con su padre parrandero (Fernando Soler). En el mismo set se incluye la continuación, "No Desearás a la Mujer de tu Hijo", estrenada al año siguiente, en la que también aparecen Soler, Amanda del Llano y quien sería la última esposa del actor, Irma Dorantes. El tomo se completa con "Dicen que soy Mujeriego" de Roberto Rodríguez, de 1949, en donde Infante hace de un hombre con mala fama que intenta conquistar a una virtuosa (Silvia Derbez) y "Angelitos Negros" de 1948, de Joselito Rodríguez, basada en la novela de Fannie Hurst "Imitation of Life", que fue también adaptada por Hollywood.

Ceramic Artists Featured in San Jose Gallery By Osvaldo Castillo El Observador

T

he City Windows Gallery in San Jose is currently showcasing the artwork of several ceramic artists in San Jose. One of those artists is Tessie Barrera-Scharaga. Scharaga took some time to talk to El Observador about her artwork this past week. EO: Where were you born and raised? Scharaga: I was born in New York City, of Salvadorian and Colombian parents. EO: How long have you been doing ceramic art? Scharaga: I've been making art for over twenty years. EO: Is it the only kind of art? If not what else? Scharaga: I'm a conceptual installation/assemblage artist that creates site-specific and timebased environments, using a variety of materials and technology. My work incorporates clay, found and rescued objects, recorded

sound, photography, video, and light effects. EO: What is ceramic art? ScharagaCeramic art is artwork made with clay. EO: How did you feel when you where asked to be a part of the gallery on Fourth Street? Scharaga: Being asked to participate in Earth • Bound, a show at City Windows Gallery featuring artists that work with clay was fantastic, particularly because among the artists participating I can name friends, colleagues, and professors I studied with as an undergrad at San Jose State University. EO: What inspires you to do art? Scharaga: The themes I use in my work are based on my questions, insights, doubts, hopes, frustrations, worries, and conclusions about the world around me. I have always been fascinated by the connections between social and cultural phenomena and personal psychological experience. Human stories inspire me, fill me with ad-

miration, and also terrify me. My work is at times painful, at times joyful, and always viscerally attached to the realities of contemporary life, mine, and the people who share this planet with me. When creating a new piece I'm hoping to be able to establish a connection with the viewer through our common humanity. Events and situations of our daily life can sometimes trigger powerful emotions difficult to articulate. In my work I aim to express the ineffable, and to find visual means to communicate concepts, feelings, and experiences that are verbally elusive. I consider myself a witness and recorder of my time and experiences, both at the personal and societal levels.

take from a few weeks to a few months to complete. It depends on the complexity of the piece. It may start with an image in my head that I need to see realized, or a piece of news that caught my attention, or some situation I've experienced or witnessed, or a passage from a book or article I've read. Most pieces require a combination of

media and technology that may include clay, wood, fabric, photography, video, and sound. I create my own ceramic objects, video footage, and soundtracks. EO: What's next for you? More art exhibits? Scharaga: As long as I can continue making art, I'm satisfied,

and hopefully, there will always be more opportunities to exhibit my work. Earth•Bound will be on display at the City Windows Gallery near City Hall in San Jose. For more information visit www.tbsartstudio.com/

EO: Where else can people find your art work? Scharaga: My website: tbsartstudio.com and my Facebook page: Tessie Barrera-Scharaga Art Studio. EO: How long does a ceramic project usually take and how do you plan it? Scharaga: An installation can

sunción.- (Notimex).- El volante internacional paraguayo del Cruz Azul de México, Cristian Riveros, a punto de ser transferido al Sunderland de Inglaterra, en declaraciones a medios locales afirmó de manera categórica que "Salvador Cabañas es insustituible" en la selección Albirroja. Riveros habló de la ausencia del "Mariscal" en el cuadro paraguayo que participará en el Mundial de Sudáfrica 2010 y de algunos delanteros que serían alternativa para llenar la vacancia que dejará el goleador de Las Águilas del América de México. "Salvador no tiene sustitutos, su puesto será

prácticamente imposible de llenar pese a las opciones que tiene en sus manos el técnico "Tata" Martino, él era diferente y un jugador notable, así que muy difícilmente cualquier otro podrá hacer las cosas que hacía él", subrayó el jugador. Insistió el mediocampista, considerado por Martino como uno de los mejores futbolistas de Paraguay de los últimos tiempos -según su criterio- que el 10 del América y de la Albirroja, quien se recupera de un impacto de bala en la cabeza sufrido el pasado 25 de enero en la capital mexicana, fue uno de los pilares de la selección paraguaya en las eliminatorias y sin duda su máximo artillero.
