25th Anniversary of MLK Day By Cinthia Rodriguez – El Observador LK recognizes the birth of Martin Luther King, Jr., and has evolved into a day of service where Americans work together to provide solutions to national problems. It is observed on the third Monday of January, around the time of King’s birthday, January 15. Before his 27th birthday, King received his Ph. D. in Systematic Theology from Boston University, started a family with wife Coretta Scott, and became the leader of a bus boycott. Dedicated to his dream, the protest continued until the buses became desegregated. As said by Gunnar Jahn, Chairman of the Nobel Committee of the time, King was the first person in the Western world to have shown us that a struggle can be waged without violence and to make the message of brotherly love a reality in the course of his struggle.

That same year the Civil Rights Act of 1968 ended discrimination in housing and school segregation ended, giving African Americans greater pride in their racial identity. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the national holiday, which continues to honor King’s legacy and commitment to transform our nation through service to others.

Opinion LETTER TO THE EDITOR

SJUSD Board may remove $3.5 million from MAEP program

O

n January 20, 2010, trustees of the San Jose Unified School District are to vote on a proposal from the new superintendent, Dr. Vincent Matthews, to retain funds formerly required by law to be passed through to the Metropolitan Adult Education Program, or MAEP. The pass-through of funds has been the heart and soul of adult education in San Jose for decades. However, the pass-through funding mandate was suspended by the State of California in these hard economic times therefore allowing school districts the legal opportunity of retaining funds, called “flexing”, for their K-12 programs. Will this Board of Education follow our Legislature’s habit of lifting monies for one program while sinking the other? It is certainly legal, but is it FAIR AND ETHICAL? We all know that adult education is the safety net for the many who seek to better themselves. These are the many who did not complete high school, the many who chose street activities realizing in their 20s that they had no career-technical skills to find a self or family-supporting job, the many who enriched our community as they arrived with their cultures and language but needed English to have a share of the economic pie, and the many who believed in life-long learning (fee classes) even at the age of 70. I am a teacher with MAEP in the fourth year of teaching GED to adults. What will my single, mother or father student do if San Jose Unified keeps 67% of MAEP’s Adult Ed funding under the drastic proposal before the Board of Education. With renewed and adjusted attitudes and motivations to succeed in school, where will my Cal Works students prepare for the GED? They need the coaching of a live teacher to learn thinking and analytical skills weakly developed in past schooling and now forgotten or very rusty. Upon passing ESL and Basic Skills, how will my English learners enter the American job market without a GED? Where will at-risk adults go to gain occupational skills for entry into the secretarial or medical office fields? How will any student without high school or GED meet state licensure requirements to become a nurse or beautician? The SJUSD proposal to keep $3.5 million of $5.2 million adult education funding is mainly designated to buyback furlough days and to start a new program for 60 middle schoolers at-risk of dropping out. I have heard statistics that the $1.7 million left for adult education will result in 84% class cancellations to result in 70% reduction in students served or about 5,000. Is this proposal the responsibility we expect from the Board of Education in these difficult times? Is this proposal to rob Peter to pay Paul FAIR AND ETHICAL when the plan is to reinstate up to five furlough days in SJUSD causing 100% closure of two MAEP campuses? Is it ethical to increase by only a few days the SJUSD K-12 school year while causing the doors to two adult education campuses to close 100 percent? Is it ethical to start up a new program for a select group of middle schoolers with money intended by the legislature, the taxpayer and voter over past decades to fund Adult Education? Over many years SJUSD has tried to retain this difficult population and evidently not succeeded.

I urge El Observador readers to contact the Board members of San Jose Unified School District, especially in districts closest to their homes, and demand that MAEP is fully funded. Their son or daughter, aunt, husband, wife have the right to attend any Adult Education program in any location in the Valley. They are not limited by home address.

(arrive early to have seating inside the Board room) The Board’s decision must not pit K-12 education against adult education. For 127 years, adult education has been part of San Jose Unified. In the late 60’s San Jose Unified then passed the administration of its adult education programs to MetroED (MAEP). We must continue to work together to educate children and their parents. Yes, all parents wish the school days to be restored. Even grandparents wish this. Even my GED young parents wish this as they know the personal loss of not being in school. The January 20 decision by the Board of Education must continue to serve the greater community’s disadvantaged, at-risk, and upward bound former K-12 students who today do not have the education needed in changing times and tough economic conditions. Readers can urge board members to make their decision with the integrity that San Jose Unified boards have always shown for the public’s welfare. Urge each board member to fund MAEP FAIRLY AND ETHICALLY. Thank-you for bringing this to the attention of your readers. Sincerely, Mary Stenseth Metropolitan Adult Education Program GED Teacher Member, Board of Education, San Jose Unified School District 1988-1992 Member, Board of Education, MetroED District (MAEP) 1988-1992

Bullets Modify Debates By Hilbert Morales

L

ast Saturday, January 8, 2011 that tragic event in Tucson, Arizona brought up many issues which demonstrate how open the American society is. Jared Lee Loughner, age 22, had a history of becoming more mentally deranged over time. Friends and college authorities had known about his mental illness, however, Jared was still able to go to a gun shop to purchase a handgun, extended clips and bullets. So will the people insist on a modified “right to bear arms” which effectively regulates the purchase of high performance weaponry? Had Jared been limited by law to a six-gun as in the old Wild West, fewer individuals would have been slain or injured. The National Rifle Association and the gun-control advocates are already presenting their respective case. Jared’s bullets have modified several debates. The challenges of dealing with mental illness are now very much exposed. It is part of the recent health care legislation which the Republicans want to eliminate. Their goal is to deny President Obama with the political performance base which favors his second term re-election in November 2012. This tragedy in Tucson caused the new Speaker of the House to delay the debate on health care one week. This delay provides the people of America an opportunity to express their concerns about the scheduled comprehensive health care debate in the House of Representatives. Constituents have time to communicate their concerns. This means that it may be possible to mitigate the planned Republican Party goal to totally reject the first health care legislation passed by Congress since the 1930’s. The American health care system is very complex because of several powerful special interests. One is the prescribed drug industry which received favored treatment during the George W. Bush administration and the Obama administration. In addition, the debate on ‘End of Life Planning” must be held because an estimated 45% of medical care expenses occur during the death and dying process that so many of us do not want to prepare for at all. Rational use of heath care resources requires “end of life’ planning if budgets are to be used for needed medical care which extend life. All must keep in mind that despite all the technology and expertise which medical service providers posCONTRIBUTORS: MARIO JIMENEZ HECTOR CURRIEL CINTHIA RODRIGUEZ

sess today, the death rate of human beings will remain at 100%. The human corpus has a finite life cycle. Let’s not confuse the eternal life of the human spirit with the limited life cycle of the human body. The security of America, its civil servants and its elected officials will now be examined again in the light of this event. Where is the balance of ‘security processes’ and ‘freedom’ from constrictive regulations which are used to make American society ‘more secure and less free’? Already our society contains 13 million undocumented residents who can live amongst us because each has the American constitutional right to invoke the Fifth Amendment which provides the right to remain silent and not make selfincriminating disclosures. Note that Jared Lee Loughner invoked his Fifth Amendment rights when questioned by authorities. Does this American terrorist possess a rational human mind? How many more exist in this nation? Will profiles be used to locate and identify them? This tragedy has provided President Obama with opportunities to speak to the nation about “changes that you can believe in”. Soon, the President will give the annual “State of the Union” speech. Bigotry, prejudice and the existing system of double standards is being exposed daily during the tenure of this ‘first African-American’ President. He has been subjected to questioning, insults and prejudicial commentary. America has very long election campaigns during which the political rhetoric is too often laced with threats and inflammatory statements. There is a need to require the use of civil language which does not project violence as a means of solving our immediate challenges. There is no doubt that Barack Obama is the leader that America needs today at this time of transition from a predominantly ‘White is right” leadership to a more inclusive diverse ethnic leadership. Definitely, major social, economic, and public policy changes are happening and being observed by the whole world. Like it or not, applying those ethical, moral and religious ideals which create loving and caring human relationship will be necessary. Those bullets have modified our national debate about important priorities of the American people.Δ

AN JOSE, Calif. — U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will host a free information session at the Sunnyvale Public Library, in Sunnyvale on Jan. 28. The session is part of a larger USCIS initiative to help immigrants better understand the naturalization process, including the content of the naturalization test, and to become familiar with free educational resources and materials available from the agency. The public is invited, and USCIS personnel will be on hand to discuss the naturalization process step-by-step, and provide information about eligibility and residency requirements, application forms, fees, the background security check and processing times. Participants will also see sample questions from the new test, and will receive an overview of U.S. history and civic principles. They’ll watch USCIS officers act out a naturalization interview. Free educational materials will be handed out while supplies last. This event is in the community calendar, so the immigrant media audience will have a chance to gather valuable citizenship knowledge.

CalWORKs call for employers to join subsidized employment program By Cinthia Rodriguez El Observador

S

anta Clara County’s Works Program successfully wrapped up their subsidized employment program in September 2010. The county was quick to launch another program that will run from October 2010 to June 2011, but on a smaller scale.

resource for low-income families and local businesses. “We would love for employers to take advantage of the program because it’s helping the clients who need to go back into the labor market,” said Mai Dam, Program Coordinator, Transitional subsidized Employment Program, Foothill -De Anza Community College District. Currently there are roughly 6,000 individuals participating in the CalWORKs Employment Services Pro-

gram, providing participants with relevant job skills, a plan for success, and the tools to prepare them for employment opportunities. The subsidized employment program is one of the choices available to the participants, who have at least six months left in CalWORKs, have a high school diploma, work experience, and are able and willing to work. Once a participant is referred, they are prescreened and matched per job opening. Most of the jobs are entrylevel positions at small businesses, insurance companies, restaurants, and many others that participate in the program. Businesses who are hiring would benefit from the program by receiving salary reimbursement for hired candidates wages for three months. After, the employer takes over, the economy is stimulated by providing revenue to low income families who spend it on basic needs. Dam explained the benefits for both the participants and the employer. An employer might not have the money to immediately hire workforce members but can find the confidence they need with the subsidized months. Ultimately, the project’s goal is to help 100 participants transition to employment.

Obama pide unidad nacional en homenaje a víctimas del tiroteo

T

ucson, (Notimex).El presidente Barack Obama dijo al encabezar la ceremonia en memoria de las víctimas del tiroteo en Tucson ocurrido el pasado , que las fuerzas que dividen a los estadounidenses no son tan vigorosas como aquellas que los unen. Obama llamó a la unidad nacional “en un momento en que nuestro discurso se ha vuelto tan fuertemente polarizado y en el que estamos demasiado ansiosos por echar la culpa de todas las aflicciones del mundo a los pies de quienes piensan diferente”. Más de 26 mil personas acudieron la tarde de este miércoles al homenaje realizado en el auditorio McKale, en el campus de la Universidad de Arizona. El auditorio universitario con capacidad para 14 mil personas fue insuficiente, por lo que los organizadores habilitaron también un estadio adjunto donde otras 12 mil siguieron el evento a través de gigantescos monitores de televisión. “No hay nada que pueda yo decir para llenar el súbito

hoyo que rasgó sus corazones “, dijo Obama, al dirigirse a los familiares de las víctimas, entre las que se encontraba el astronauta Mark Kelly, esposo de Giffords. Los seis muertos incluyen a un juez federal, una niña de nueve años, un matrimonio de jubilados, un colaborador de Giffords y otro hombre retirado. Antes de la ceremonia Obama y su esposa, la primera dama Michelle Obama, habían acudido al Centro Médico Universitario de Tucson para visitar a varios de los lesionados incluyendo a Giffords, quien lucha por su vida tras recibir un balazo en la cabeza. Obama afirmó que Giffords, su personal y sus electores fueron atacados cuando ejercían su derecho de reunión pacífica y de libertad de expresión. En el evento, que inició con una bendición tradicional de la etnia Pascua Pueblo, formada por descendientes del pueblo Yaqui, hablaron también la secretaria de Seguridad Nacional, Janet Napolitano, el procurador federal Erick Hol-

der y la gobernadora de Arizona, Jan Brewer. El méxico-americano Daniel Hernández, voluntario en la oficina de la legisladora Giffords, considerado un héroe por su oportuna intervención que evitó que el atacante continuara disparando, recibió una amplia ovación de los miles de asistentes al acto. Hernández rechazó ser un héroe y dijo que los verdaderos héroes son aquellos servidores públicos que trabajan para servir a los demás.

Moms want to contribute more to home finances, but feel they lack education and skills (ARA) s economic uncertainty continues, more moms are feeling the pressure to contribute more financially to the household. Yet many don’t feel prepared to do so, according to a new survey by American InterContinental University. The survey of approximately 1,800 working and stay-at-home moms found that 90 percent feel the pressure pinch, with 65 percent desiring career advancement or considering a return to work. At the same time, more than 70 percent say they are not satisfied with their current education or skill set. Jen Ziegenmier, vice president of student management at AIU and a working mom, says now more than ever, it’s important to provide moms with flexible options to further their education and skills. “I know many moms like me desire an education that will cater to their hectic schedules. Online education has done a good job of meeting these needs, helping moms obtain their education when it would otherwise be extremely difficult.” In fact, 39 percent of all moms surveyed says they would prefer to

A

pursue their education online. And for stay-at-home moms surveyed, an online study option was the unanimous choice. For moms looking to go back to school online, Ziegenmier shares these tips for a smooth transition: 1. Establish short- and longterm goals: Whether it’s the goal of completing your coursework by the end of the week or setting a timeframe for earning your degree, adult students need to set realistic goals for themselves. With predetermined goals, you’ll be less inclined to throw in the towel when you face a hectic day. 2. Participate fully and regularly: Online courses may be convenient, but that doesn’t mean they’re a shortcut to education. Use the online tools available to you chats, an online library, etc. - to get the most from your online coursework. 3. Determine your learning style: As a busy student and mom, it’s important to understand how you learn the best. Fortunately, online courses are evolving to meet individual learning needs. AIU, for example, offers a dynamic learning tool called M.U.S.E. - My Unique

Student Experience - which enables students to choose the mode of learning that is best for them, from video to interactive tutorials to digital activities. 4. Expect the unexpected: It’s inevitable. Your computer crashes the night your final paper is due. Your daughter comes down with the flu the day before a homework assignment is due. Life as an online student requires setting reasonable deadlines for yourself so that you’re not scrambling and creating extra anxiety. 5. Communicate with your university - and network with other students: Being an online student doesn’t mean you won’t have a support system. Reach out to instructors or deans when you have questions or concerns just as you would in a live classroom. And some schools offer a virtual campus, which provides areas for students to connect and find other students with similar interests - from online clubs to a Facebook-like internal social network.

Governor Brown Proposes Deep Cuts, Tax Extensions And Realignment

O

n Monday, January 10, on the heels of several consecutive years of budget deficits, Governor Jerry Brown announced his plan to address a devastating $25.4 billion gap for the 20112012 fiscal year. At Monday’s press conference, Governor Brown articulated a three-pronged approach to balancing the budget: broad spending reductions or cuts totaling $12.5 billion in revenue; a 5-year extension of temporary taxes and other measures to produce $12 billion in revenue; and a monumental shift in delivery and funding of services from State control to local governments in an attempt to bring the budget into balance. The extension of taxes will need to be approved by voters in June. PAINFUL CUTS PROPOSED The Governor chose to cut broadly across key programs to balance the State budget, proposing cuts in critical programs that serve low-income residents, including immigrants. Low-income Californians, including immigrants, will face great pain if Brown’s proposal is adopted. The State would roll back critical assistance for health care, child care and other social services at a time when economic recovery remains a mere aspiration for millions of California’s families. But amidst these extremely painful challenges, there is one piece of encouraging news. Unlike in past years, immigrants who make so many contributions to our state - were not unjustly singled out. This year’s budget proposal did not specifically target vital immigrant programs such as the California Food Assistance Program CFAP) or the Cash Assistance Program for Immigrants (CAPI). However, proposed reductions in Supplemental Security Income (SSI) grants would reduce CAPI grants as well. Health and human service cut proposed by Governor Brown would: - Increase the financial burden for Medi-Cal recipients by requiring mandatory co-pays for visits with physicians, dentists and clinics as well as for emergency room visits and extended hospital stays. The proposal also decreases provider reimbursements by 10% to save $709 million. - Reduce funding for CalWORKs by reducing the benefit eligibility period from 60 to 48 months for eligible adults. Children may still receive “child-only” benefits, but only if parents satisfy federal work requirements or meet certain other exceptions. - Reduce funding for SSI through a drop in monthly payments to the federal minimum, which would result in $177.4 million in savings during the next fiscal year. - Institute Co-Payments and increased premiums in the Healthy Families program, which along with the elimination of vision care, will result in fewer Californians obtaining necessary

health

care. BUDGET PROCESS FOR 2011 In traditional times, the January release of the Governor’s budget is followed by several months of public debate and private negotiations in the hopes of adopting a budget by July, when the new fiscal year begins. However, the budget proposal released today relies heavily on a 5-year temporary extension of a number of taxes, for which the Governor is seeking voter approval. Therefore, the Legislature must adopt a budget or at least a specific framework by mid-March to place the tax extensions on the June ballot. This shortened budget process will force legislators to act quickly on Governor Brown’s proposal. If voters reject these tax extensions, Brown and the Legislature will need to seek alternative strategies for filling a $12 billion gap. This could mean even more drastic cuts to essential programs for low-income children and families. In the coming months, CIPC will continue monitoring the state budget process and its impact on immigrant communities. Stay tuned for further updates and action alerts

Education

New year, new school? Virtual schools ease transition (ARA) oughly 2 million American families with children move every year - and their children switch schools - according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Most families move over the summer, so their kids can start new schools in the fall. But other families make the school switch mid-year - the result of parent job changes or family economic challenges. With more school options available than ever, a growing number of families who aren’t moving their homes are nonetheless changing their children’s schools mid-year. Parents who do so are often seeking to give their child a “fresh start” for a variety of reasons: a student who’s bored, or one who’s not getting the individualized attention he needs. Student health or social issues can also be factors. Educators say many families switching their kids’ schools mid-year are turning to virtual schools like Connections Academy, for a variety of reasons. First, more families than ever have embraced virtual education in general: Some 2 million American K-12 students now get some or all of their education virtually, according to research firm Ambient Insight. Second, the format of virtual schools eases a student’s ad-

R

justment period - and physical transitions for both student and family. Finally, family finances sometimes come into play. Virtual public schools - like all public schools - are tuition free and virtual private schools like National Connections Academy cost a fraction of traditional “bricks and mortar” private schools. Yet they deliver the academic rigor and highly personalized educations that are hallmarks of independent schools. So families with children enrolled in traditional private schools who are struggling to meet hefty tuition obligations often find they can save significant money and still get an independent school-caliber education. At most virtual schools, learning takes place at home, with a parent or ‘Learning Coach’ on site, with instruction directed by certified teachers, with whom student and parents communicate frequently by phone and email. Here are five tips for parents to ensure a seamless transition for their child to a virtual school in 2011. * Insist on quality: Not all virtual schools are created equal - Many states have virtual public schools; check www.ConnectionsAcademy.co m to see if there’s one in your state. Like all public schools, these schools are tuition-free to families. In states where virtual

public schools are not available there are many fee-based virtual private school options. High-quality virtual schools employ professional and certified teachers. Make sure the school offers an accredited program with a wide range of courses, and a proven curriculum developed by professional educators. Talk to parents with students currently enrolled in the school. * Plan ahead - Think about the best time to make the school switch. For high school (and some middle school) students, it’s ideal to finish out the quarter or semester, and then start the new period in the new school. The student gets a fresh start in his new courses, and will have completed coursework from his semester in his previous school. Of course, sometimes life throws you a curve ball - unexpected job changes or other sudden family matters seldom come with advance warning. In that case, parents should reach out to the virtual school’s guidance and enrollment officials as early as they can, and work with them to make the school switch as smooth as possible. * Get your paperwork in order - It can take a while to complete the enrollment process at a virtual school. Parents should start sooner rather than later gathering the necessary paperwork they’ll need to

enroll their child in the new virtual school - transcripts, birth certificates, immunization records and the like. Check, of course, with enrollment officials at the new school to get a

port cards until well into the spring semester, making it tricky for some parents to show proof of course completion, and to get all the student’s course credits transferred to the new school. Parents facing this situation should check with their new school’s enrollment counselors to find out what other alternative paperwork they can use, and then request it from the previous school. * Maintain an open dialogue - The parents’ role in ensuring a smooth mid-year transition doesn’t end when their child is enrolled in his new virtual public school, has all his books and academic supplies, and has started classes. “The key to a smooth transition - to any school, not just a virtual public school - is for parents to maintain an open dialogue and communications with the school,” says Tisha Rinker, senior manager of school counseling for Connections Academy.

Guías para Padres de Adolescentes Marisol Muñoz-Kiehne, PhD ¡Cómo pasa el tiempo! Muchos recordamos la adolescencia, para tantos agridulce y turbulenta, como una etapa en la que, según definíamos nuestra identidad personal, redefinimos con más o menos conciencia nuestras relaciones con nuestros padres. Quizás sentíamos que no nos entendían, y que deseaban controlarnos y restringir la libertad y autonomía que anhelábamos. Posiblemente nos distanciamos de nuestros padres y familiares, o nos rebelamos contra sus ideas y costumbres. Ahora de adultos tal vez utilizamos nuestra juventud como referencia al tratar de comprender y de guiar a nuestros adolescentes. Si bien hay diferencias importantes entre la transición de la niñez a la adultez según la hayamos vivido en nuestras tierras y en nuestros días de adolescentes, y las condiciones del aquí y ahora, ciertos principios son válidos a través de las culturas y del pasar del tiempo. He aquí unas 25 guías para cultivar relaciones positivas entre padres y adolescentes: 1. Aprovechar los momentos cotidianos, tales como compartir la cena con sus jóvenes, y dedicar tiempo a cada uno de sus hijos regularmente 2. Expresarles afecto- mirar a sus jóvenes a los ojos y demostrarles cariño con sonrisas, abrazos, y besos (en privado si así lo prefieren) 3. Demostrarles amor incondicional- rechazar la conducta inapropiada de sus hijos, pero siempre aceptar quiénes son y cómo son 4. Tratar a sus jóvenes con respeto y con buenos modales- decirles “por favor,” “ lo siento,” “gracias” 5. Proporcionar sentido de seguridad a sus hijos mediante rutinas, reglas, y expectativas consistentes y pertinentes a su edad 6. Establecer límites y aplicar consecuencias razonables cuando los violan, corrigiendo a sus hijos sensitiva y prudentemente 7. Aceptar las fallas y fracasos de sus jóvenes como partes de la exploración y el aprendizaje- permitirles que cometan errores y aprendan de la experiencia 8. Asignar responsabilidades a sus hijos, según su madurez y capacidades- evitar presionarles con expectativas irrealistas basadas en nuestras aspiraciones 9. Ser un buen ejemplo para sus jóvenes al lidiar con las tensiones cotidianas con calma, conciencia, y paciencia 10. Servir de modelo para sus hijos al relacionarse

respetuosa y responsablemente con otras personas 11. Permitir a sus jóvenes que manifiesten sus pensamientos y sentimientos, confirmándolos como legítimos aún cuando no coincidan con los de usted 12. Guiar a sus hijos a comprender sus propias emociones y a conducir su comportamiento 13. Alentar a sus jóvenes a entender y procesar las experiencias cotidianas platicando frecuentemente 14. Ayudar a sus hijos a desarrollar destrezas de comunicación- enseñarles a no ser pasivos ni agresivos, sino afirmativos: “Me siento x cuando haces y. Quisiera z.” 15. Ofrecer a sus jóvenes dirección y guías, apoyándoles en sus decisiones aunque difieran de sus recomendaciones 16. Felicitar a sus hijos por los esfuerzos que ponen en sus estudios y otras actividades- apreciar y reconocerles cuando actúan con empeño 17. Enfatizar los talentos de sus jóvenes más que sus debilidades, ¡y no compararlos con otras personas! 18. Animar a sus hijos a competir y a seguir reglas de compañerismo, en lugar de instarlos a ganar o a ser el primero a toda costa 19. Observar las interacciones de sus jóvenes con otras personas, y escuchar sus conversaciones no privadas 20. Cuando sus hijos platiquen con usted, oírlos atentamente, con oídos, ojos, cabeza y corazón 21. Hablar a sus jóvenes abiertamente acerca de temas delicados y difíciles (sexo, drogas, pandillas) 22. Contarle a sus hijos honestamente sobre su propia juventud (no hay que decir toda la verdad, pero sí sólo la verdad) 23. Involucrarse en la educación de sus jóvenes, alentándoles a esforzarse y a no abandonar los estudios 24. Asegurarle a sus hijos que no tienen que enfrentar las situaciones difíciles solos, mostrándoles lealtad y solidaridad 25. Buscar apoyo o ayuda profesional cuando sus jóvenes o usted la necesiten- los adultos tampoco tenemos que enfrentar las situaciones difíciles solos Escuche a la Doctora Marisol y participe en “Nuestros Niños” los domingos 8-9am en La Kalle 100.7/105.7 FM, KBBF 89.1 FM, Tricolor 99.5 FM, José 107.1 FM y KMBX 700 AM.

Condado reconocen a Carrillo por sus “Pregúntale a George” 25 años de servicio Por Rosario Vital El Observador

A

Alberto Carrillo se retira de las Oficinas del Condado de Santa Clara tras 25 años de servicio.

lberto Carrillo tenía apenas 10 años cuando llegó a San José. Nació en Mexicali, Baja California y trabajó con sus padres en los campos pizcando uvas, fresas y también laboró en las famosas “canerías”. Siendo el 5to de 15 hermanos fue uno de los principales sustentos para esta familia numerosa. El tenía que trabajar para ayudar a sustentar a la familia. Carrillo hizo servicio militar en la Fuerza Aérea Militar y estuvo en Korea por dos años. “Fueron años maravillosos, aprendí mucho durante estos viajes, era un joven que quería conocer muchas cosas”, expresó con nostalgia. Desde muy joven trabajó en diferentes lugares, incluso parte de su vida se entregó al servicio del voluntariado. Precisamente en estas actividades con la organización La Raza Unida conoció en 1969 a Jim McEntee, quien años después en 1979 lo llamó para trabajar en las oficinas de Relaciones Humanas del Condado de Santa Clara.

Carrillo cuenta que su trabajo era ayudar a las personas que tenían que enfrentar problemas en la comunidad. Alberto tenía que intervenir en conflictos comunitarios, y constituir las organizaciones de base comunitaria y servicios tales como: el Asian Law Alliance, el desayuno anual de Martin Luther King, el programa de invierno de refugio para indigentes en la Guardia Nacional de Armerías, el Consorcio de Emergencia de Vivienda, el Programa de Jornaleros y los programas de reasentamiento para los refugiados de Laos y Vietnam. “Alberto es una persona que está comprometida a la justicia social. A lo largo de estos 25 años en el Condado de Santa Clara, ha utilizado su experiencia y conexiones para construir justicia, igualdad y paz en la comunidad. Carrillo es un personal de gran corazón y lo extrañaremos”, dijo Mary Janes Solis de la Oficina de Relaciones Humanas. En 1989, Alberto fue fundamental en el Departamento de Corrección al desempeñarse como observador de la Oficina de Relaciones Humanas en las cárceles a fin de defender los derechos humanos de los reclusos. “Alberto Carrillo ha estado siempre involucrado en la comunidad latina, con los desamparados, veteranos, trabajadores y ha apoyado el tema de inmigración. Ha abierto las puertas y ha dado un lugar a la comunidad para que participe civicamente en el condado y en el estado. Es un honor reconocer el trabajo y la contribución de un hijo de campesino, y activista del GI que hado mucho a su comunidad”, dijo Teresa Castellanos de la Oficina de Relaciones Humanas del Condado de Santa Clara. Carrillo fue miembro de las oficina de Servicios y Relaciones de Integración de los Inmigrantes (IRIS siglas en ingles), y fue parte del Comité de Diversidad, también participó en el Concilio de Asesoría Bilingúe de Derecho al Voto. Como veterano, Alberto también ha participado activamente en los servicios del veterano y del GI Forum. El activismo de Alberto en la comunidad refleja la rica historia de sus esfuerzos por los derechos humanos y civiles en Valle del Silicio. Alberto se retira después de 25 años en el Condado de Santa Clara y cuenta con 43 años en la actividad pública. Como activista, como padre de 4 hijos y defensor de los derechos humanos será recordado por esa gran dedicación. ¡Gracias por ayudar a nuestra comunidad!

Acuerdo histórico Por Rosario Vital El Observador a Auditora Independiente de la Policía (IPA), Jueza La Doris H. Cordell y el Cónsul General de México en San José, David Figueroa Ortega firmaron un memorándum de entendimiento (MOU siglas en inglés) el pasado jueves 13 de enero en las oficinas del IPA. El acuerdo consiste en que un representante de la oficina de IPA acudirá una vez al mes a las oficinas consulares de México a fin de informar a sus respectivos compatriotas sobre los servicios que ofrece el IPA y a responder preguntas y orientarlos sobre la labor que hace el Departamento de Policía de San José. Recordemos que una de las grandes preocupaciones que tiene la comunidad latina es el trato de los efectivos policiales a los latinos. “No somos perfectos y estamos dispuestos a hacer cambios, y estoy de acuerdo con esta iniciativa entre ambas instituciones, es muy oportuna. Queremos que nuestra comunidad se acerque a nosotros. Tenemos un buen departamento policial”, dijo el Jefe Interino de la Policía de San José, Chris Moore. Por su parte la Jueza Cordell dijo ,“Queremos informar a nuestra comunidad sobre la necesidad de mantener una buena comunicación y recursos. Me satisface hacer historia. Esto nació de la Oficina de Relaciones Humanas del Condado de Santa Clara durante una conversación con Teresa Castellanos y estoy muy contenta de haber puesto en marcha esta iniciativa”. Por su parte el cónsul David Figueroa expresó su conformidad el saber que exista una relación importante entre sus connacionales. “Es la primera vez que el IPA firma este tipo de acuerdo. Esta firma tendrá un efecto positivo y automático. Esto motivará a que el policía tenga una mejor conducta”, dijo el cónsul. Por su parte el Alcalde de la ciudad de San José,Chuck Reed explica que es “es importante mantener una buena relación entre la policía y la comunidad. Queremos que la comunidad entera esté dispuesta en ayudarnos, no se puede tener una ciudad segura en los Estados Unidos sin un buen departamento de policía, porque el de nuestra ciudad lo es”. Este acuerdo entre ambas oficinas se lleva a cabo gracias al acercamiento entre el IPA y el Consulado General de México en San José. El Cónsul General David Figueroa Ortega ha expresado

Keep fresh air flowing during dry winter months

(ARA)

W

inter is the season for being cozy, while spending long days and nights inside the comfort of our tightly

closed homes. It’s also an infamous time for feeling dry and under-the-weather. With people spending more time indoors, air circulation is compromised, and the level of

contaminants increases. Fleeting freshness and moisture take a toll on our skin, throats, noses and overall health, and can be especially harmful to those suffering from allergies and asthma.

Up to 72 trillion microscopic irritants, or allergens, find their way into your home every day. They include dust, pollen, pet hair and dander, dust mites, mildew, lint, fungus, most tobacco smoke, cooking grease and bacteria. Many of these particles are undetectable by your nose and throat, and can get deep into your lungs. This year, be proactive in creating a safer indoor environment for your family and guests by following these few quick fixes. Filter your way to fresh comfort. A whole-home air filtration system, like the AccuClean (TM) from American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning, can remove up to 99.98 percent of unwanted particles and allergens from a home’s filtered air, a benefit that no standard 1inch throwaway filter or ionictype room appliance can match. These systems are designed to work as part of your heating and cooling system, meaning they’re designed to clean the filtered air in every room of your home. Air filtration systems work behind the scenes to keep you breathing easier and feeling healthier year-round. Routine maintenance to your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system is equally - if not more -

critical to keeping the indoor air quality of your home safe and systems operating at peak efficiency. Changing or cleaning your filters regularly will minimize the introduction of dust and other contaminants into your home. Check your owner’s manual or contact an HVAC professional to determine the appropriate filter schedule for your system. In addition, an HVAC professional can perform a routine maintenance checkup to ensure all components of your HVAC system are operating properly, and advise you on ways to improve the safety and comfort of your home. To locate an independent HVAC dealer near you, visit www.americanstandardair.com. Why so dry? The chill of outside air has a relatively low dew point. When we bring that outside air inside and heat it, even more moisture is sucked from the air, making your body uncomfortably dry. The addition of a humidifier will restore and balance the moisture in your home’s air, ensuring there’s not too much moisture that can harbor bacteria and germs, not to mention damage to woodwork on window frames and doors. Extra tips for a happier, healthier, warmer winter: * Reverse the switch on your ceiling fans so they blow

upward, toward the ceiling. By doing so, you will reduce cooling drafts and force naturally rising heat back down into the room. * Add a touch of green. House plants are a small, but natural source of oxygen, and will liven up any room. * On pleasant or mild winter days, hang bed sheets out on a clothesline to dry, for a crisp and fresh winter-wonderland smell that will have you falling fast to sleep at night. Or even open your windows for 15 minutes to break stale or musty air. * Keep an odor-eliminating air freshener around the house to quickly spray on upholstery, clothes, blinds or carpet before guests arrive. * Turn the heat down in your shower. Hot water may feel amazing on a cold winter morning, but it contributes to the dryness of your skin. Now that you’re ready to beat the bummer of cold weather, your family can enjoy spending time together. And before you know it, it will be time to pull shorts and swimsuits out of winter storage.

Que no lo ciegue el glaucoma

S

an Francisco.-Varios estudios indican que el glaucoma de ángulo abierto — la forma más común de la enfermedad — está causando invidencia en la comunidad hispana de los Estados Unidos. La carencia de pruebas regulares y tratamiento puede dar por resultado la pérdida de la visión. EyeCare America, programa de la fundación de servicio público de la Academia Americana de Oftalmología, tiene la misión de preservar la visión, y la cumple mediante el servicio y la información públicos. La organización quiere que los hispanos conozcan la importancia de someterse a pruebas y tratamiento contra el glaucoma, y exhorta a la comunidad hispana a consultar con un oftalmólogo profesional en cuanto comience el nuevo año. “El glaucoma es una de las principales causas de invidencia en los hispanos”, expresa el Dr. René Rodríguez-Sains, MD. “EyeCare America exhorta a la comunidad hispana a conocer sus factores de riesgo con respecto a esa enfermedad”. Comprender el glaucoma En un ojo sano, se produce continuamente un líquido transparente tras el iris, que sale del ojo por un canal microscópico de drenaje en la parte frontal del mismo. Si el canal se bloquea, la presión dentro del ojo aumenta y, a menudo, causa daño por glaucoma al nervio óptico, que conecta al ojo con el cerebro, por lo que el perjuicio al mismo puede provocar la pérdida de la visión. ? ¿Quiénes corren riesgos de glaucoma? Aunque no se conocen totalmente las causas del glaucoma, sus factores de riesgo incluyen historia de esa enfermedad en la familia, así como la raza y la edad. El glaucoma afecta a personas de todas las edades, desde recién nacidos a ancianos, pero es más común en estos últimos.

Los afroamericanos, hispanos y diabéticos también corren más riesgos de contraerla. ¿Cuáles son los síntomas y cómo se diagnostica? En la mayoría de los casos de glaucoma no existe sintomatología detectable. Los pacientes pueden sufrir visión borrosa y ver halos alrededor de las fuentes de luz, especialmente en la mañana. En los casos de glaucoma de cierre agudo del ángulo, la persona puede experimentar dolores oculares intensos y náuseas. El oftalmólogo puede diagnosticar los daños al nervio óptico y la pérdida de campo visual, usando diversas pruebas para determinar la presión intraocular, como la oftalmoscopia, donde el médico observa directamente por la pupila del ojo para ver el nervio óptico. EyeCare America invita a las personas mayores de 65 años a aprovechar este programa nacional. Este servicio que funciona durante todo el año ofrece pruebas oftalmológicas sin costo alguno a personas elegibles, así como materiales informativos gratuitos. Un grupo de aproximadamente 7,000 oftalmólogos voluntarios realiza pruebas en los Estados Unidos y Puerto Rico. Las personas interesadas en el programa pueden visitar www.eyecareamerica.org para determinar su elegibilidad. Además, EyeCare America ofrece DVDs gratuitos a las personas interesadas. Glaucoma: A Guide for Latinos, con el campeón de boxeo Oscar De La Hoya, es un video educacional de 30 minutos con el propósito de concientizar a los hispanos acerca del glaucoma. Las personas interesadas en este material, pueden llamar al número telefónico 1-877-8876327. Hay material disponible mientras duren las existencias. (Textos y fotos de /PRNewswireHISPANIC PR WIRE)

“Los recoditos” triunfan como grandes

W

ooland Hills Ca, Con un sugestivo nombre “La Banda Los Recoditos” ha lanzando su más reciente sencillo a la radio a nivel nacional en todo México y Estados Unidos titulado “Habitación 69”,

el cual es un tema por demás romántico en cuanto a su letra, pero no así en su música, lo que lo hace una canción muy diferente que sólo “Los Recoditos” podían interpretar y que seguramente convertirán en todo un éxito.

Inspiración de Rubén y Martín García, “Habitación 69” se incluirá en el nuevo disco de Recoditos que saldrá a la venta en marzo próximo y que se titulará “A toda madre”, material con el que el grupo pretende superar el éxito de

“Ando Bien Pedo” y con el cual no sólo obtuvieron nominaciones a todas las entregas de premios de música en México y Estados Unidos, si no que se colocaron durante varias semanas en el primer lugar de popularidad en las listas radia-

les de música en español; lo que los convirtió en la agrupación juvenil más exitosa dentro de la música regional mexicana hoy en día. La agrupación ha sido nomidada al GRAMMY en la categoría a “Mejor álbum

banda”. La premiación de los GRAMMYS se llevará a cabo el próximo domingo 13 de febrero del 2011 en el Staples Center de la ciudad de Los Ángeles, California.

Mikey, de su lado, donó un bajo que será exhibido en la institución, localizada en Jack-

son Avenue, como un regalo especial. “Fue muy satisfactorio volver al lugar en donde crecimos y poder contribuir en la enseñanza de estos niños profesando con el ejemplo que si se quiere, se puede”, expresó emotivo. Al despedirse de los alumnos, los dos artistas prometieron repetir la experiencia en esta escuela en un futuro cercano y, asimismo, realizar una donación especial a su programa de música que incluirá la adquisición de nuevos instrumentos para la formación de los niños interesados en el arte musical.

Vibras

“13 Hierbas para tu suerte” Por Mario Jiménez El Observador Abre camino Se porta en pequeños saquitos color verde o amarillo con el fin de abrirse camino, encontrar nuevas oportunidades y buena suerte en general, frecuentemente se preparan enjuagues con esta hierba, se añade rompezaraguey, ruda y arrasa con todo para hacerse un baño lustral. Arrasa con todo Se mezcla esta hierba con un poco de rompezaraguey y hierba abre camino, y se hacen enjuagues durante tres días consecutivos para deshacer hechizos y vencer la brujería. Cáscara sagrada Se recomiendan los enjuagues de agua de cáscara sagrada para salir airoso de cualquier situación que tenga que ver con asuntos legales y corte. Enebro Se siembra en la casa con el propósito de protegerse de los amigos de lo ajeno. Tres de sus flores se colocan en el maletero del auto con el fin de prevenir accidentes. Ginkgo Es reconocido como un agente que mejora y reestablece las funciones mentales. Si quiere rejuvenecer, ponga a remojar 21 hojas de ginkgo en

agua mineral la noche de luna nueva, al día siguiente enjuague su cara con la mezcla, hágalo una vez al mes. Le sorprenderá el resultado. Hierbabuena La hierbabuena se utiliza en rituales para la protección del hogar, antes de iniciar un ritual de magia blanca, frote sus manos con hojas frescas de hierbabuena. Se dice que donde crece con abundancia el dinero nunca faltará. Mandrake Donde exista una planta o un trozo de raíz de mandrake, los malos espíritus y la magia negra no pueden existir. Coloque un trozo del tallo de mandrake junto a dos monedas de plata para que el dinero le abunde. Ocote Es comúnmente sugerido para alejar las malas vibras y los malos espíritus. Actualmente son muy populares las cruces de ocote, coloque una de estas cruces debajo de los colchones de su cama si siente energías extrañas a su alrededor o si padece de pesadillas constantes. Pirul Con las hojas de pirul se fabrican ramas de limpia y se pasan por el cuerpo de una persona que este enferma o deprimida, luego las hojas se entierran y santo remedio.

También se quema como incienso para alejar las malas vibras. Rompezaraguey Con esta hierba se preparan pócimas y enjuagues sumamente efectivos para erradicar la mala voluntad, la mala suerte, la envidia y la escasez de dinero. Se mezcla frecuentemente con la hierba abre camino y arrasa con todo. Ruda Al plantarla en el jardín atrae buena suerte y ahuyenta a los malos espíritus. Es muy utilizada para hacer limpias a personas y viviendas. Se riega agua de ruda en la puerta de entrada de la casa para que el dinero no falte. Toronjil Las infusiones son recetadas como enjuague para curar afecciones del cuero cabelludo y promover el crecimiento del cabello. Porte en la billetera dos hojas frescas de toronjil si siente que tiene mala suerte en el amor o si desea encontrar una pareja. Vetiver Es utilizado en rituales espirituales, para atraer buena suerte y fortuna a un negocio, deposite un poco de polvo de vetivert en la caja registradora y así sus ganancias se duplicarán

“El futbolista en México sufre con su profesionalismo”: Lapuente

M

E S P E C I A L DEL ESPECIAL DEL 5 0 % DE DE D E S C U E N TO 50% DESCUENTO

éxico.- El futbolista mexicano no ha entendido del todo lo que es ser profesional, tanto dentro como fuera de la cancha, señaló el técnico Manuel Lapuente, quien afirmó que es un aspecto que le ha impedido crecer al balompié nacional. El estratega del América mencionó que un técnico depende de sus jugadores, quienes en México no tienen la disciplina necesaria. “Lo que hace a un técnico son los jugadores, el jugador todavía sufre con su profesionalismo en México, no lo tiene bien arraigado, no sabe lo que es, todavía hay que luchar con el ju-

gador con su comportamiento dentro y fuera de la cancha, entonces es lo que no ha permitido evolucionar”, indicó. Lapuente explicó que su negativa a dirigir en Europa tras la Copa del Mundo Francia 1998, pese a tener algunas ofertas, se debió a que él quería un equipo protagonista y no uno con el que luchara por el no descenso. “Si me hubieran contratado para que el equipo tuviera posibilidades de llegar a la Champions,sí (habría aceptado una propuesta), pero no me iba ir a Europa a luchar por el descenso”, concluyó.
