Llegaron las tarjetas inteligentes “Clipper” Por Rosario Vital El Observador

L

a Autoridad del Transporte del Valle de Santa Clara ha puesto en marcha el sistema de tarjetas inteligentes. Las tarjetas denominadas “clippers” harán que su viaje sea más práctico a la hora de comprar pases y sus pasajes a diario. Clipper es una tarjeta inteligente que permite a los clientes cargar en efectivo los pases mensuales para pagar los viajes en VTA o cualquier otro sistema de tránsito en el área de la bahía que aceptan estas tarjetas. Clipper es conveniente para los viajeros porque les permite ahorra su tiempo al realizar menos papeleo y hacer transferencias en las diferentes agencias. A toda prueba Una de las características claves de estas tarjetas es que tienen la capacidad de reemplazar el valor de dinero que tiene dentro. Puede ser que la pierda o se la roben y si está registrada no hay problema y recupera una nueva y el dinero que cargaba. Es decir funciona como una tarjeta de crédito, se reemplaza automáticamente por otro plástico el valor en efectivo o pases mensuales mediante la vinculación de una tarjeta de crédito / débito o cuenta bancaria a la tarjeta de Clipper. Uso en otros servicios de transporte Clipper también reconoce otro servicio de transporte como Caltrain, BART y AC. Los usuarios ya sean adultos, personas de la tercera edad o jóvenes también pueden empezar a cargar sus pases mensuales que pueden utilizar a partir del 1 de marzo. "Desde el inicio del programa, VTA se ha asociado con la Comisión Metropolitana de Transporte para llevar a los viajeros las tarjetas Clipper", dijo el gerente general de ATV Michael T. Burns. "El lanzamiento de Clipper es una nueva forma de hacer negocios, este sistema digital ofrece mayor comodidad para los pasajeros tomando el autobús de VTA y tren ligero." “Clipper es fácil de usar. El cliente simplemente pasa su tarjeta una vez por el dispositivo en los autobuses o en la plataforma del paradero. Una señal le indicará que ya puede subir a cualquier transporte público del VTA. Ese es el comprobante de pago. Cada vez que un cliente las pase, el dispositivo Clipper mostrará el importe cobrado por el viaje y el saldo de su tarjeta de Clipper”, dijo Lupe Solis vocera de VTA. Los clientes pueden adquirir tarjetas de Clipper en el centro de servicios y oficinas del VTA. Habrá personal de VTA en estos sitios para ayudar a los clientes con preguntas sobre las tarjetas “clipper”, también habrá estaciones con Internet para que los ususarios se inscriban y carguen automáticamente su tarjeta. Las tarjetas se pueden obtener en tiendas Walgreens. Muy pronto se ampliará la red de tiendas en el Condado de Santa Clara para que sea más conveniente para los clientes a obtener una tarjeta.

VTA Riders Will Be Able to Use Clipper Card

S

an José, Calif. –VTA customers will now be able to pay for rides using their Clipper card.

The Clipper card is a smart card which allows customers to load cash value and monthly passes to pay for rides on VTA or any transit system in the Bay Area that accepts Clipper. Clipper is a convenience for customers who will save time by carrying fewer paper passes and making transfers from different agencies more efficient. Other key features include the ability to replace the value of a lost/stolen card if the Clipper card is registered, and the ability to automatically load cash value or monthly passes by linking a credit/debit card or bank account to the Clipper card. VTA customers will be able to load cash value on their Clipper card and use it as fare on VTA bus and light rail. Clipper will also automatically recognize transfers from other transit agencies (from nearby Caltrain, BART, and AC Transit) on VTA bus and light rail. Customers can also begin to load (adult, senior, and youth) monthly passes which they can use beginning March 1, 2011. “From the program’s inception, VTA has partnered with the Metropolitan Transportation Commission to bring Clipper to VTA customers,” said VTA General Manager Michael T. Burns. “Launching Clipper is a new way of doing business; this digital system offers further convenience for riders taking VTA bus and light rail.” Clipper is easy to use. The customer simply tags their Clipper card once on the Clipper device on the VTA light rail platform before boarding a light rail vehicle or tag as they get on a VTA bus. The tag is proof of payment. Every time a customer tags, the Clipper device will show the amount charged for the ride and the balance of their Clipper card. Customers can acquire Clipper cards at the VTA Downtown Customer Service Center and at the VTA River Oaks Administrative Offices. There will be VTA staff at these locations to help customers with questions about Clipper; there will also be Internet-enabled kiosks available for customers to sign-up for Clipper’s autoload feature. Clipper cards can be obtained from Clipper retailers, including Walgreens. VTA and Clipper are expanding the network of retailers in Santa Clara County to make it more convenient for customers to get a Clipper card. A current list is available by visiting www.clippercard.com/retail. For more information, please visit www.vta.org/clipper or call VTA’s Customer Service at 408-321-2300 or www.clippercard.com or call Clipper Customer Service at 877-878-8883. ∆

Collect our History Founding Families

R

It had amazing participation from youth and their schools. They were so pleased to see themselves reflected in this exhibit. Our county is a diverse blend of communities. Unfortunately, all history is not preserved with equal funding. Historical societies have traditionally preserved skewed contributions of some while overlooking the major contributions of others. The time to correct this distortion of history is now. Soon the youth who do not see themselves as part of history won’t bother to care. I know all of us care. What are the next steps? San Jose is also considered a cradle of history for northern and southern California because so many of the local natives were migrant workers who traveled up and down the state to find work. A history, that honors all, preserves the unity in this state. The youth will only learn the lessons of history if they see themselves included and connected to that past and included and connected to an inclusive vision of our collective future as an inclusive diverse community Publisher’s Note: Mrs. Teresa R. Hernandez is a kindergarten teacher at George Mayne School, Milpitas which is within the Santa Clara Unified School District. We hope it generates enough interest to attract funding. Tax-deductible contributions may be made to EL OBSERVADOR FOUNDATION, INC. founded 1983 as a community based non-profit organization. We have a program which would teach our youth to interview (in both English and Spanish languages) in order to collect the oral histories of elderly Latinos using new technologies, especially videographic journalism. Ideally, the historical experiences of all should be recorded and preserved so as to document the model of how Latinos have co-existed here in Santa Clara Valley for at least four centuries. Through the years things have been improving gradually. As in the historic Mexican Consulate/San Jose Independent Police Auditor Memorandum of Agreement.

Ocurrielcias

ecent historical events have happened regarding local natives of Santa Clara County and/or the San Francisco Bay Area. Unfortunately, the youth no longer get their information from traditional print sources. It is for this reason that our local city and county leaders must begin to preserve the local past and present history in an online accessible site. Ideally an actual exhibit to engage the audience of all ages would be the best venue and a great tourist attraction too. The technologies of today with video display such as the “Museum of Tolerance” in Los Angles would be an awesome venue. I am a research person by nature and personal passion. I share the news of relevance whenever I can. However, most teachers, students or community members don’t have the time or training to do so. I want to have the diverse stories which mention local heroes (or victims) preserved as our community’s historical record. Our youth cannot learn from lessons of the past via history when those stories are not taught at school. The local school’s textbooks are generated in Texas. Local leaders, such as all of you, can have the most powerful impact on the future by letting our local youth know that they are a part of historical important developments. There are so many stories to share of significant historical importance right here in our community. Unfortunately, those historical figures honored are often remembered in an audience or venue directed at other adults. Who shares these stories with the youth of our community? Mr. Cortese, in your recent ‘State of the County’ you mentioned that this year 2011 is dedicated to the Child. I love the concept. I teach kindergarten students. These children absolutely love historical stories. However, as these children mature, they do not see their connection to history and soon lose interest. I am willing to work on a project based on the concept of ‘remembrances’. In Riverside, CA, my husband and I contributed to the historical presentation and exhibit of ‘Founding Families’ which contributed to local history. My husband’s (Benjamino Hernandez) family contributed artifacts and photos.

T

he 2011 State of the City Address was delivered by Mayor Chuck Reed at the newly refurbished San Jose Civic Auditorium, 115 W. San Carlos Street, San Jose, CA 95113 on Thursday evening, February 17, 2011. The refurbishing was paid for using SJ Redevelopment funding and is an example of how civic funds are used to create jobs during recessionary times. After all the ‘Thank you’s were delivered, the Mayor presented the most important commentary towards the end of his address. In this economy, revenues have not increased while costs have continued to climb. One has to admire the leadership which was demonstrated by Mayor Reed in directly addressing the issue. He stated, “In the past 10 years, annual retirements increased by $90 million. In the next five years, they will increase by another $250 to $400 million and more on top of that in the future.” If current unfunded retirement contracts are not modified, then the majority of city revenues will be used to pay for retirement benefits. Can you imagine your taxes being used to pay for fewer civic services and more retirement benefits? It is a totally unacceptable vision of our future. Why is this so? It is because prior elected officials were willing to enter into contracts without having the full costs fully calculated and understood. The obligations entered into are ‘unfunded’ and pushed off into the future. Those former elected officials did not do their civic stewardship in a manner that took care of the people’s interest. Rather it is evident today that the special retirement interests of labor unions were more important than those of the city’s constituents who expect civic services delivered at reasonable costs. This is a microcosm of what has been going on for years at all levels of governments: Local jurisdictions (school boards, water districts, etc), city, county, state and federal levels. It is no wonder that certain jurisdictions have gone bankrupt. Fiscal reform is required now: sooner rather than later according to the information presented by the Mayor in graphic form for all to see and understand. During FY2010, the city’s work force was reduced by 800 positions; 150 individuals were demoted or laid off, including 49 firefighters and 25% of the remaining work force, including management took a 10% reduction in total compensation. While these may have been the frugal fiscal steps possible during

FY2010, this approach of cutting work force, demoting, and laying off workers is not the answer. The resolution of this pressing obligation also does not lie in the requirement of longer vesting periods and larger employee contributions. The answer lies in changing the current retirement plans: Elimination of bonuses & guaranteed increases of benefits; to require older retirement ages; early retirements result in reduced benefits; require higher employee contributions to retirement funds; and more. Another concept is to index payouts to the economic level being experienced. This also assumes that the global and national economies are operating at a sustainable level. This is not the case today. There are not guarantees in life. As our elected leader, the Mayor is to be commended for presenting detailed information which enables all to see why reform is necessary now. It is essential for any contract to be approved by the City Council members to have its full costs calculated and known prior to acceptance and enactment as policy. This is ‘transparency’ of a public issue at its best. The mayor stated reasonable boundaries for the future fiscal expenditures: a) Insolvency leading to bankruptcy is not acceptable; b) The recent civic experiences of Vallejo will not be repeated here; c) current retirement obligations will not be stopped; d) Unacceptable are an inadequate police and firefighter force, coupled with libraries and community centers being shut down. Essential public safety and civic services must be delivered. Now that the size and scope of this fiscal matter is on the table for all to see and understand, it is incumbent for all involved to step up to do the work needed for reasonable resolution. No less is required of all public and private leadership levels involved. Why should taxes be paid for civic services delivered in the past? Current budgeted funds paid into retirement escrow funds which grow over time through prudent investment, must be the source of retirement benefit payouts. The people are willing to vote if those involved cannot come to any reasonable agreement. And the informed voter is not willing to be exploited any longer. This is the main FY 2011 City of San Jose Challenges to be resolved.∆

Affectionate twist to the emergency alert system By Cinthia Rodriguez – El Observador he County of Santa Clara launched the public awareness campaign “Who do you Love?” in 2010 and is slowly gaining momentum. They began the new year with a lovely strategy that allowed newlyweds to participate. Valentine’s Day continues to be a popular day to wed for couples in Santa Clara County. It’s also a day that many people associate with doing something special for loved ones. Couples that decided to get married during this year’s Valentine’s Day were given the opportunity to join the campaign that in the long run will show true love. “The County’s Emergency Alert Notification System is really important because we’ve noticed that natural disasters are happening everywhere, so we’re just trying to make sure that we’re ready to help the residents in Santa Clara County,” said Gwen Mitchell, Director of Public Affairs. As the newlyweds posed to be photographed, they were exposed to the latest way of encouraging friends and family to sign up for Alert Santa Clara County (SCC), the county’s emergency alert notification system. The photos are going to be on www.iloveyoupleasesignup.com, where the photo and a message can be sent. The photos will also be on display on the “Who do you Love” wall at the county building and on the county’s Facebook. AlertScc is a free, easy and confidential way to find out what to do and where to go during floods, fires, crime incidents, hazardous material incidents, infectious disease information and earthquakes. AlertSCC sends voice messages to all the land lines of Santa Clara County and can also send text messages once the number is registered. “We don’t want to over use it,” said Mitchell. “So if people get a message, it’s really serious.” The alert system has already been used in Morgan Hill to notify residents of the sexual assaults that were taking place in their community as well as a chemical spill in Sunnyvale. The county has also partnered with the Consulate of Mexico, making the alert system available in Spanish. Forty one couples tied the knot during this year’s Valentine’s Day. To schedule civil marriage ceremonies with the Office of the Clerk-Recorder, call (408) 299-5664 and for more information about the alert system, visit www.alertscc.com.

Domestic Violence Decreased in Santa Clara County T here were five (5) domestic violence related deaths in Santa Clara County last year according to the Santa Clara County Domestic Violence Death Review Committee. Of those 4 were murder/suicides (2 events) and 1 homicide. Of the five deaths, 2 were from the Asian community, 2 from the Caucasian community and one from the Hispanic community. No one from the African American or immigrant communities (less than 10 years in the U.S.) died this year. We also lost one person from our GLBT community. The ages of homicide victims ran from 28 to 70 years of age. One senior lost their life this year and this is the first such death in the senior community in over 5 years. No children lost their lives in domestic violence incidents this year and one child survived the loss of their only parent.

There was an indication of substance abuse in one case and in four cases the couples involved were separated, divorced or discussing either, at the time of the deaths. This continues to bolster the committee’s finding that the time of separation (or the discussion of it) is a very dangerous time for domestic violence victims. The Committee also discovered a number of similarities in the deaths. We have listed those as “red flags.” The list contains facts we deduced from the deaths we studied. They may not apply in every situation. These include: Separation or talk of it prior to the homicide. Extreme jealously, possessiveness. Prior unreported domestic violence. Unemployment or underemployment. Stalking behavior. Threats of suicide and or homicide.

Depression. Kidnapping or falsely imprisoning a victim. Perpetrators were also noted to be loners, with no real friends outside the relationship. Perpetrators controlled the victim financially and otherwise and became distraught at the discussion of any separation. The committee also noted that the perpetrators in these cases had attachment issues which started in their early years and early learning or emotional problems. Meticulous planning by the perpetrator prior to the death. Untreated and inadequately treated mental health issues. Access to handguns-legally obtained.

Newlyweds Harlan Howard and Angelita Howard from Sunnyvale.

También admitió que hay algunos policías no tratan bien a los residentes y va a tomar control sobre esto. El jefe policial también habló de las nuevas pólizas de incautación de vehículos.

B of A Grant Ensures Trainees’ Success

S

an Jose, CA: The Bank of America Charitable Foundation (B of A) awarded the Center for Employment Training (CET) a grant to provide support services to low income students attending job training at the CET Training Centers in Santa Clara County. The B of A support grant will help many trainees at CET currently facing daunting barriers to employment. Funds will pay for bus passes, uniforms and/or tools and materials, as

well as vouchers for meals. The support services grant represents an important resource and is vital to the success of many students who struggle with basic needs while attending daily training. Many of these students are unemployed, often with little or no means to support themselves while pursuing education and training. A long-standing belief of CET’s is: “We give a hand up, not a hand out.”

chequeos de ebriedad cada vez que pidan fondos a la Oficina de la Seguridad del Tráfico en California. Es decir que no sigan pidiendo licencias cuando el motivo es el control de la sobriedad. En los últimos años los retenes para control de conductores ebrios dieron como resultado una intimidación a la comunidad inmigrante sin licencias de conducir. “Estoy satisfecho que Moore conoce bastante bien a la comunidad. Fue una reunión que convocó a amigos y críticos y fue bastante productiva”, dijo Reséndez, quien por iniciativa propia inició este diálogo. La importancia no es hablar el idioma español sino entender a un grupo étnico. Eso parece indicar el encuentro informal de Moore con la comunidad latina. Moore no habla español pero sabe comunicarse bastante bien con los latinos y prueba de ello es la aceptación a la casa de los Reséndez en el Este de San José.

Meeting the Tax Deadline

W

ashington, DC .-Penalties for late filing of tax returns can be harsh, but what can you do if you haven’t received the information you need from your employer or others? If you are waiting for

your Form W-2, mortgage interest statement, 1099 DIV or other documents that are necessary to complete your tax forms, it’s in your best interest to take action. IRS does not accept “failure to receive documents” as an excuse for failure

to file. If you haven’t received your W-2 form by January 31, it’s time to contact your employer. The IRS will be standing by to assist you at 800.829.1040 on that date and beyond. Before you make the

call, be sure you have the following information ready: your Social Security number, dates of employment and your employer’s name, address and phone number. IRS will not only contact your employer, but it will also send you a Form 4852 (a substitute Form W-2) to fill out in case you don’t receive the Form W-2 in time to make the tax deadline. In the old days, when the necessary tax documents didn’t arrive, there was no choice but to call your financial institution and spend what seemed like an eternity waiting on hold to speak to a customer service representative about retrieving the missing document. The Internet has changed

all that by allowing banks and mortgage lenders to post this information online. After you’ve established an online user name and password, most banks and mortgage lenders make the tax information you need available to you on their websites. Even if you accidentally tossed out some important tax documents along with the junk mail, you can easily access the numbers you need for your tax return. If you find you just can’t get the documentation together in time, another option is filing an extension. This will delay your filing deadline until October 17, 2011. With the penalty for not filing a tax return or an extension a stiff five percent

per month up to a maximum of 25 percent of the amount of tax due on the late-filed return, filing an extension is well worth the effort. Keep in mind that you’ll also need to file an extension for your state tax return. Please note: taxpayers should not confuse the extra six months the extension provides for filing with a postponement on paying. You’ll still need to estimate the taxes you may owe and submit that amount prior to April 18, 2011 along with Form 4868. To avoid paying a penalty, you must pay at least 90 percent of what you estimate you owe, or 100 percent of your 2009 tax liability. If you don’t pay in full, you’ll wind up owing four percent annual interest on the liability not covered. Filing a tax return can be daunting and stressful without the advice and guidance of a tax expert. A convenient, searchable directory of enrolled agents, the only federally-licensed tax practitioners, may be found at www.naea.org. Information provided by the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA) is a nonprofit membership organization composed of tax specialists licensed by the US Department of the Treasury.

OWA CITY, IOWA— Registration is now open for the April 9, 2011 ACT achievement test. Students who wish to take the college admission and placement exam must register before March 4, 2011. The ACT is a curriculumbased achievement exam. It tests what students have actually learned in school, not their aptitude for learning. The ACT also measures what students need to know to be ready for first year credit-bearing college courses based on ACT College Readiness Standards. Every student’s results can be tied directly to these consistent standards. The ACT has four sections—English, mathematics, reading and science—and takes about three hours to complete. Students who take the ACT Plus Writing complete an optional writing test that requires an additional 30 minutes. Unlike other exams, students are not penalized for guessing or answering all the questions on each test section. In fact, it is beneficial for test takers to answer all questions within the time allowed. During registration, students may select up to four universi-

ties to receive their score reports. ACT scores are accepted by all four-year colleges and universities across the United States. ACT reports scores only when requested to do so by the student. Additional score reports are available for a small fee. All students complete a detailed inventory of questions during ACT registration. Each test taker receives an ACT score report that includes a wide variety of information to assist with high school course selection, college readiness, career planning, and college admissions. The cost for the ACT test without writing is $33. When combined with the optional ACT Writing Test, the total cost is $48. Students who qualify

may apply for a fee waiver through their high school counselor. The ACT website, www.actstudent.org, has helpful information, free sample items, and options to order inexpensive test prep materials to assist test takers get ready for the exam. However, the best preparation is to take rigorous core courses in school, study hard, and learn the academic skills needed in college. Most students register online at www.actstudent.org. Students may also pick up registration forms from their high school counseling offices. Late registration is available until March 18, 2011 for an additional $21 fee.

his Valentine’s Day, low-income tenants and their supporters spoke out against proposed cuts in the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) budget at the Opportunity Center in Palo Alto. The president’s budget provides $41.7 billion to HUD. Funding for several program s will be reduced. This can include over 25,000 Section 8 tenants cut off from federal assistance in California, including several thousand families in Santa Clara County. It can also mean cuts to homelessness programs. “There are no programs for people that have no money but nobody needs to be on the streets,” said Joyce Osagiede, CoPresident, Tenants Council. Osagiede grew up in Palo Alto and is currently unhoused. She has been living at the Opportunity Center for two years while organizing against the proposed budget cuts. “Save our homes, we love you,” read the card. Opportunity Center Tenants Council, Affordable Housing Network of Santa Clara County and InnVision created and delivered Valentine’s Day cards addressing the housing problems to Assembly member Rich Gordon (D- Redwood City) and Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren (D- San Jose). “I will continue to fight against these cuts so that those struggling in our community and across the country are given the assistance they need to weather this current economic crisis,” Zoe Lofgren, in a released statement. The action was part of a national movement organized by the National Alliance of HUD Tenants, in over 20 cities including Portland, Boston, Washington DC, Chicago, and San Francisco.

New tips for opening the lines of communication with your doctor

(ARA) new year is here and for many baby boomer women, that means getting back on track with their health and wellness - eating right, exercising and scheduling those overdue doctor's appointments. However, a new survey reveals that boomer women may not be so quick to dial their doctor when it comes to issues with their personal health. Only 16 percent of baby boomer women are likely to discuss a taboo topic with a physician. Additionally, more than two-thirds are less likely to seek out a physician if they consider their condition to be a "normal part of aging," according to the TENA Boomer Women's Health Survey, conducted by TENA, the leader in incontinence products and services. In 2011, the first of the 77 million baby boomers will turn 65 years old. More than half of them are women, who as they age, may find themselves experiencing new and sometimes uncomfortable conditions which they consider to be a "normal part of aging." Many of the personal health conditions that

A

baby boomer women may experience however, such as bladder weakness and low sex drive, are not symptoms of aging and most can be managed with the help of a physician. Once boomer women are in the doctor's office, the stigma doesn't cease. The survey also found that over one quarter of women felt uncomfortable, embarrassed or judged when they discussed a personal health issue with their physician. Furthermore, although bladder weakness and low sex drive ranked as the top two most embarrassing conditions to discuss with doctors, the same two conditions also ranked as the issues that were brought up the least by physicians. "If doctors aren't asking and patients aren't speaking up, then women may needlessly suffer for years with what may in fact be a manageable condition," says Dr. Cynthia Hall, MD, FACOG, Founder and Director of the Center for Women's Continence and Pelvic Health at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. "I often have to coax information out of my patients to identify problems they may be experiencing, so I know that it is especially important that doctors spark the conversation

because their patients may be embarrassed or reluctant to." Nervous about talking to your doctor about your symptoms at your next check up? Here are some tips from TENA on communicating openly and honestly with your doctor: Don't be timid, be tenacious: Talking about taboo health conditions, such as bladder weakness, can be hard, but you deserve to live your life free from symptoms that hold you back. Speaking up about the symptoms you've been experiencing will help your doctor help you to manage your condition. Not ready to talk to your doctor yet? Work your way up by confiding in a friend or family member. Do your homework: Doing some research before your appointment could go a long way in helping you identify your condition and management options that you can ask your doctor about. Not sure where to start? Check out www.betenacious.net for information on the causes and symptoms of some common conditions that women experience, such as bladder weakness. Take notes: Keep track of your symptoms and the times when they are most prevalent and bring those notes with you when you visit your doctor. If you get nervous, having notes there will help you stay on topic and remember the little details. Also, having notes to share with your doctor will provide more background on the condition they may notice patterns that could indicate triggers or causes of your condition.

Ultrasound: An Essential Part of Prenatal Care (NewsUSA) or many moms-to-be, a first ultrasound is a life changing experience -- it can also be a life saving moment for the child they're carrying. While ultrasounds have been used in prenatal care for many years, new technology is changing the face of obstetrical care. Today, doctors can use 3D and 4D imaging capabilities along with "conventional" 2D ultrasound, allowing them to examine everything from a baby's developing brain to its arms and legs. They can even see a fetal heart the size of a dime. These new capabilities can help doctors detect problems that could put babies at risk. "Thanks to early detection through prenatal care, medicine can often save at-risk babies who would have been lost a generation ago," said Dr. Jacques Abramowicz, Frances T. and Lester B. Knight professor, director of Ob/Gyn Ultrasound and Co-Director of the Rush Fetal and Neonatal Medicine Center in Chicago. "But we can only make a difference if moms take the initiative to see their doctors and see them early in their pregnancy." According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 4 million American women will give birth this year, and nearly one-third will experience some kind of complication. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Health Resources and Services Administration says babies born to mothers who receive no prenatal care are five times more likely to die and three times more likely to be born at low birth weight than those whose mothers receive prenatal care. Prenatal care provides a wide range of support, including medical care, education and counseling. Ultrasound is often a critical part of that all-important care. By providing pregnant women "with important information and sometimes an early warning if there could be a bump in the road ahead, ultrasound aids physicians in making better diagnoses, which helps moms make better choices for their babies and themselves," said Janice Blackwell, vice president, Ultrasound Global Marketing, for Philips Healthcare.

Office manager Carol Ong receives the Valentine’s Day card for Senator Elaine Alquist.

Preserving love during fiscal hardship By CinthiaRodriguez El Observador

A

s part of a Bay Area effort, Services, Immigrant Rights, and Education Network (SIREN) got together with members of a few south bay organizations to present a special Valentine’s Day card to state elected officials. Among the recipients were Senator Elaine Alquist (D-Santa Clara) and Assembly member Jim Beall (D-San Jose). “We love Medi-Cal, IHSS, CalWORKS, health care, and child,” read the card. Upon delivery, the coalition also sang to the recipients and made it clear that the card should serve as a reminder

against proposed budget cuts, especially health care and human services. The red homemade Valentine cards were signed by members of SIREN, Silicon Valley Independent Living Center, California Alliance for Retired Americans, and California Nurses Association, organizations fighting on behalf of California’s families, seniors, and people with disabilities and others for a California Family Recovery Budget. The California Family Recovery Budget strives to create and maintain jobs, provide a strong safety net when there are no jobs and bring in state and Federal funds for the relief of struggling families. “I’m worried about all of

the programs,” said Greg Miller, RN. “The legislature needs to find a way to raise revenue to preserve programs, which working people really depend on.” Along with supporting the revenue proposals by Governor Brown, the coalition would like to see even more additional revenue to mitigate cuts. In accepting the customized card, the representatives of the elected officials discussed the importance of the programs. The coalition referred to the programs as a matter of life and death. The members also urged the representatives to remind the elected officials to keep voting to save the essential services.

America’s Movie By Cinthia Rodríguez – El Observador

W

ith very few movies to relate to, Latinos have something to look forward to during this year’s Cinequest Film Festival. They will be able to attend a world premiere of America, a film about

a hotel housekeeper in Puerto Rico. The 95 minute drama is based on the novel ‘America’s Dream’ by Esmeralda Santiago. Her second novel to be made into a feature film, the only difference from the first is that America is not biographical - yet it deals with real life events.

Cosas insignificantes

Es una producción de Guillermo del Toro y cuenta con la actuación de Barbara Mori

Both tell the story of America, a woman who works in a Vieques Hotel, lives with an alcoholic mother, her teenage daughter, while in a violent relationship with the father of her daughter. “Although the story takes place in the Caribbean, it’s not all sunshine, her story is a strong one,” said Frances Lausell, producer of

America during a phone interview with El Observador. Lausell worked with Mexican director Sonia Fritz while doing most of the filming in her home of Puerto Rico, and even though the duo finds it easy to identify with women stories, the director considered it one of the most challenging ones. Fritz, who has worked with immigrant issues wanted something without the stereotypical problems and referred to the film as an immigration story, but not the typical one. America, played by Lymari Nadal, decides to move to the United States willing to start a new life, learns to overcome difficult situations and chooses a healthier way of life. “I hope they can connect with a story about empowering,” said Fritz. Fritz also hopes people get inspired and leave the theater wanting to do better in life and taking any positive message they see on screen. “For us, it’s about opening doors not only for America but the Caribbean,” said Lausell. The world premiere of America will be on March 3, playing at the California Theater during the Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose. It will premiere in Puerto Rico on March 10 and will also be featured in a film festival in Guadalajara, Mexico during the end of March. The duo considered that appropriate, considering March is Women’s month. “We had a good time and it shows at the end,” said Fritz.

¡A golear se ha dicho!

Supervisor Dave Cortese, dio “la jugada” de honor para dar inicio a esta temporada deportiva. Por Rosario Vital - El Observador e inició la temporada deportiva de la “Hispanic Soccer League”.

“En el marco de la celebración del Año del Niño, queremos seguir apoyando al deportes y por su puesto a la niñez”, dijo Dave Cortes. Recordemos que el pasado mes de enero el Presidente de la Junta de Supervisores declaró el 2011 como el Año del Niño. Cortese afirmó que la humanidad debe al niño lo mejor que se le pueda dar. Las expresiones y el entusiasmo de estos pequeños fueron de alegría. Así lo demostraron David, José, Matthews de diferentes equipos procedentes de Milpitas, Mtn. View y San José. Por su parte los padres de familia expresaron su conformidad de que las autoridades y la comunidad en general apoyen el deporte para de esta manera prevenir a nuestros hijos de vicios y de la ociosidad. Los encuentros se harán sábados y domingos en las escuelas primarias Washington, Anne Darling y Christopher de la ciudad de San José.

México, (Notimex) a victoria que obtuvo el América por 2-0 frente a Nacional de Uruguay en Copa Libertadores generó reacciones divididas en la prensa deportiva mexicana, pues a pesar de que las Aguilas ganaron en su debut como local, no lo hicieron de forma convincente. La Afición y Cancha, suplementos deportivos de los diarios Milenio y Reforma resaltaron la tradición del cuadro de Coapa de iniciar ganando en el certamen continental (lo hicieron en sus seis participaciones previas) y que mantuvo en esta ocasión.

El equipo representativo de Washington celebra otro año de participación en este torneo 2011.

Pero ambos diarios coincideron en la discplicencia de la escuadra charrúa, que no opuso resistencia al partido planteado por el chileno Carlos Reinoso, director técnico del América. El diario Esto, de la Organización Editorial Mexicana fue muy crítico hacia el equipo y lamentó las fallas de los delanteros americanistas Tony López y el argentino Matías Vuoso. Mientras, El Universal se mostró mucho más duro con la escuadra capitalina y puso en tela de juicio una aparente mejoría en los azulcrema desde la llegada de Reinoso a la dirección técnica, en sustitución de Manuel Lapuente.
