The Beginning of Change A By Dave Cortesse Santa Clara County Supervisor

s we reflect on the first decade of the 21st century, we can see the ups and downs and the tumultuous economy. But we can also look to the future and see the path towards recovery. Despite the tumultuousness, families pulled together and did more with less. Likewise, here at the county, we were still able to accomplish a lot, despite diminished resources. I wanted to take a minute and reflect over some of the great things we put in place in 2010 to benefit the residents of Santa Clara County, thanks to your support. Highway 101 Corridor Improvements I hope you got my email from last month, announcing the pending construction of Highway 101 at Tully Road. If you travel Highway 101, you may have seen the construction equipment appearing around Tully interchange. I am very excited to see this as it is the realization of almost a

decade of hard work and perseverance. Since I was first elected in 2001, I have fought tooth and nail to upgrade this interchange. This project will dramatically increase motorist and pedestrian safety. Also, it will begin to ease the traffic congestion on this vital road. But the fight isn’t over. Just before Christmas I met with state leaders to develop a strategy for securing the remaining funds to update the Yerba Buena and Capitol Expressway interchanges. The projects are already designed; all that is needed now is about $31 million to complete the construction. This is my number one transportation goal and, hopefully, I’ll have good news for you in late spring 2011 on securing the funds. I am also working to plan a celebration of the groundbreaking of the construction work. For more information on the project or the celebration, please contact my office at 299-5030 or rabia.chaudhry@bos.sccgov.org.

District 3 out in the community I strongly believe in the power of communities. In 2010, my office and I participated in dozens of local events put on by neighborhood associations and community organizations to show support and help connect residents to county services. Also last year I co-sponsored the First Annual Day on the Bay: A Multicultural Festival in Alviso with the Santa Clara County Parks and Recreation Department. This festival allowed residents from across the county to learn about services and resources available to them as well as to enjoy free live entertainment, free food, free kayak rides at the Alviso Marina and free pumpkins. My staff and I are already planning this year’s events and I hope to see you at one of them. A greener Santa Clara County In order to ensure our community’s survival, we must make it sustainable. With that in mind, I’ve focused a great deal of time on greening and making sustainable not only county operations but the community too, including supporting the creation of a County Office of Sustainability. This office will further the goals of the environment, the economic stimulus and equity. To put it simply, the office will help the county ensure that all its residents have a healthy place to live and a chance for good jobs. No more young minors in Juvenile Hall Last year was a significant year for social justice in Santa Clara County. After studying the issue and taking public testimony, I asked the Board of Supervisors to approve a resolution to no longer place any child 12 years old or younger in Juvenile Hall – and the Board unanimously agreed. Children this young need one-on-one, highly intensive intervention – and Juvenile Hall is not set up to do this. Young offenders are now being placed in highly

trained parental care-like settings, where they can receive the attention and care needed to rehabilitate and re-enter the world. Studies show that 97% of these kids will not re-offend. A cost efficient and rehabilitative criminal justice system In an effort to make the criminal justice system fairer, while at the same time saving taxpayer dollars by easing the burden on the courts, my office has been working with county staff on how to divert certain low level offenses away from the judicial process. Such “diversion” programs have been successful in many other jurisdictions because they allow non-violent offenders to correct their offense while not taking up valuable time in the courts. Last December, the Board approved the first diversion method – giving infractions (as opposed to misdemeanors) for certain low level vehicle offenses. These are just a few of the changes that I worked on last year. I have more ideas for this coming year, but I know you have many other great ideas. To that end, I led in the creation of a whistleblower hotline for county employees and residents to make anonymous tips and suggestions to help us create a more efficient and accountable county government. Suggestions can be made online at www.sccgov.org or by calling 888-302-7743. All information will be kept private.

I look forward to serving you as the President of the Board of Supervisors this year (2011). My office is always available to you to answer questions or connect you with services. Please do not hesitate to contact me at 408-299-5030 or dave.cortese@bos.sccgov.org.

Special Task Force Raids Fraudulent Internet-Based Moving Companies

A

fter a year-long investigation prompted by numerous consumer complaints, a special task force organized by the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office and its Bureau of Investigation executed search warrants at the premises of three Internet-based moving companies. Task force participants include the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Department of Transportation, the California Public Utilities Commission, Santa Clara County’s Department of Weights and Measures, the San Jose Police Department, the District Attorney’s Offices of Monterey and Alameda County, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement. Wayne Allen, Eran Bar, Roni Hayon, Melissa Jiminez, and Adalinda Reyna-Mendoza have been arrested for theft-related offenses in connection with the investigation. Others are being sought. The fraudulent movers offer low prices over the Internet, but increase the charges using various scams, including fraudulently “reweighing” goods and using extra packaging

materials which are billed at exorbitant rates. The movers then hold the customers’ goods hostage until those consumers pay the inflated charges. Deputy District Attorney Kenneth Rosenblatt, assigned to the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office Consumer Protection Unit, reminds consumers to avoid booking moving services over the Internet or accepting estimates over the phone. Rosenblatt offers the following tip: “Do not hire any company unless they come to your residence and give you a detailed written estimate of the cost of moving your possessions.” He also cautioned that since the companies investigated by the task force used names similar to large, and legitimate, moving companies, consumers should make certain that “what appears to be a nationwide mover is not just a fraudulent group with an internet connection.” Consumers who believe they have been victimized by one of these companies should call the District Attorney’s Consumer Protection Unit at (408) 792-2880

Payday Lenders Merit No Restrictions In San Jose By James Duran Board Chair, Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Silicon Valley (HCCSV)

T

Ocurrielcias

he HCCSV is committed to promoting and supporting businesses in Silicon Valley. We know that by creating a climate for business to prosper, we also create opportunities for individuals to find jobs or have jobs. This improves their lives for themselves and their families. We also believe that consumers benefit when they have a full range of competitive choices in the marketplace for goods and services. Consumers know best their personal situation. Consumers should be allowed to individually choose the best product or service for their specific need at the price they want to pay. Now the City of San Jose is working on an ordinance that would build barriers to restrict some local businesses and put jobs at risk. This proposed ordinance would curtail personal choice and potentially raise cost to consumers. The S.J. City Council is considering placing a development moratorium coupled with harsh zoning restrictions in this city on just one type of financial services retailer: The Payday Lenders. This may hurt our community, our civic economy and our citizens. These restrictions would be anti-business. Like banks and credit unions, payday lenders are a state regulated legitimate alternative for short-term credit. Consumers and the

competitive marketplace should be allowed to decide if legitimate and regulated businesses should exist, not government officials. These proposed restrictive ordinances could put certain job opportunities at risk. Payday lenders along with other local businesses are important economic engines for jobs in our communities. We cannot afford to curtail opportunities or put existing jobs at risk, especially now. These proposed restrictive ordinances would limit consumer choice and could increase how much they have to pay for legitimate short-term credit in the marketplace. Payday loans may not be for everyone, but many consumers find them to be the most practical and least costly option for borrowing a small amount of money for a very short period of time. Consumers should be allowed to choose the best product for themselves without unnecessary limits on their options and potentially higher costs. The San Jose City Council should be working to create a welcoming environment for businesses, not closing doors. It should be looking to foster more job opportunities, not shutting them down. It should be promoting legitimate financial alternatives, not limiting choice and raising costs. A moratorium or new zoning restrictions on a legitimate financial service business is simply the wrong policy for San Jose.

Early Prevention And Intervention Required By Hilbert Morales

T

he tragedy in Tucson, Arizona changed that community because many in that community and throughout the nation are now aware that the danger from within is great. Despite signs of personal mental pathology which was definitely antisocial, Jared had the freedom to operate under the radar screen of local law enforcement and institutional authorities at local community colleges who had cause to reject him as a student. However, current law and its behavioral standards were not violated, so therefore, Jared was not subjected to early intervention. A large void exists between local institutions, local community police, the state and national levels of law surveillance and authority. It would behoove state assemblies and national government to meet and confer concerning the many barriers to our ‘tradition to be free’ and the successful surveillance and recording of those who have the potential to be violently destructive. Communities have all experienced violence involving guns, knives and improvised bombs. Locally, in one weekend, five individuals were slain. It is time for individuals to take note of friends and acquaintances who emanate those tell-tale signs of a transition from ‘normal human behavior’ (who knows how to define that?) and extreme anti-social behavior. Recently, the Secret Service released a comprehensive study about those who attempted to assassinate the President of the United States. Despite the unique nature of each and every assassin already incarcerated, the finding was that all went through a very similar and recognizable transition from “normal human behavior’ to one of being a psychopath who would solve personal issues with a destructive action. Locally, some steps are being taken to deal with these basic issues. This Saturday, January 18, 2011 San Jose Mayor’s Gang Prevention Task Force will conduct a summit which will address local issues of gang violence. San Jose is at the forefront of providing resources to establish after school programs and support programs which engage children from after school until the parent comes along after having worked all day. Many of these programs will suffer from the draconian budget cuts which are in the offing though they mitigate gang recruitment efforts. Today, the current generation of youth is used to receiving services which can be accessed for ‘free’ simply because those who ‘benefit’ are never really informed about how and who funds these services. A sense of entitlement has been generated which is unsustainable in any economy, good or bad. When needed services cannot be funded through the usual

local government agencies, we expect the state and federal levels to provide resources. The current economy does not generate the tax revenues needed to fund the level of services required. A paradigm shift is necessary. Those 30 odd bullets discharged in Tucson, AZ have brought to the fore that many good Samaritan are amongst us. In a crisis they respond as best they can. However, the majority of us need to begin to think about ways to provide assistance to those who need them. This can happen without a formal government program being responsible or being involved. Have we forgotten how to sweep the sidewalks and gutters in front of our homes (or storefronts)? Many simple jobs have become ‘unionized’ in a manner that denies developing youth an opportunity to perform simple tasks needed. The biggest impediment to success in achievement of public security and safety is the practice of not snitching when one sees wrong behavior. Many murders are unsolved simply because the witnesses do not step forward as witnesses willing to testify to establish facts and truth. It is these acts of nonconformance that undermine public safety, security and denies justice to all. Whistle-blowers and certain witnesses are provided protective custody simply because they did the right thing. It takes courage to do the right thing. Think of the human pain and suffering coupled with the prevention of property damage that did not happen in this community. That was when the 2 hour photo clerk called the police’s attention to the pipe bombs and automatic weaponry photographed by an individual who was planning to conduct an incident at a local community college.. Speaking to each other with enhanced civility is not enough. Each of us must be the conscious steward of public security and safety in the environment wherein we personally operate daily. We must speak up when the signs of violence become apparent. We must learn to be as non-violent as was Mahatma Ghandi, The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, and César Estrada Chavez. We all must become engaged in securing each other from discharged bullets which destroy the safety and serenity required for humane activities. We must become acquainted again with the Ten Commandments and the universal commandment, which is to treat your neighbor as you would want to be treated. Let’s stop those who discharge bullets by learning what it takes to do early prevention and intervention. Let’s establish laws and behavior standards that permit serene peace amongst us.

Mejora imagen de Obama según encuesta

N

ueva York, (Notimex).- La economía estadounidense se está comenzando a recuperar y más votantes (54 contra 43 por ciento) dan crédito al Presidente Barack Obama por la recuperación, según un sondeo publicado por la Universidad de Quinnipiac. Un 73 por ciento aseguró que el país está en recesión, aunque esta cifra bajó de un 79 por ciento comparado con una encuesta realizada el 22 de julio pasado. Votantes que participaron en el sondeo, 32 contra 29 por ciento, indicaron que las políticas de Obama van a ayudar en lugar de hacer daño a la economía de la nación, mientras que un 36 por ciento aseguraró que estas medidas no harán diferencia. En tanto, 51 frente a 41 por ciento de encuestados indicaron que Estados Unidos no debería interferir en Afganistán, considerado este el nivel más bajo de apoyo a esta guerra desde

que Obama asumió la presidencia. Por su parte, un 48 por ciento frente a un 43 por ciento de quienes participaron en el sondeo quieren que el Congreso derogue le reforma en el sistema de cuidado de salud. “Los republicanos que empujan la derogación de la ley de reforma a la atención de salud tienen más pueblo estadunidense de su lado. Puede que no tengan los votos en el Senado, pero tienen muchos entre las personas de la calle”, dijo Peter A. Brown, director del Instituto de Sondeo de la Universidad de Quinnipiac. “Mientras la popularidad del presidente Obama en las encuestas ha mejorado en las últimas semanas, la coalición en contra de su plan de cuidado de la salud se mantiene y es bastante similar a la que existía cuando sus números estaban en su punto más bajo”, agregó Brown.

Business

Disaster prep tips for small and home-based business owners (ARA) early 30 million small businesses operate in the United States, according to the Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy. They employ just over half the country's private sector workforce and hire 40 percent of high tech workers, such as scientists, engineers and computer workers. "With 52 percent of small businesses located in homes, it is important for these business owners to protect their personal and business assets properly," says Bruce Peterson, a senior vice president with Fireman's Fund Insurance Co. "Employee and family member safety comes first in the event of fire, flood, earthquake, windstorms, or any other physical loss." Whether a natural disaster such as flood, hurricane, earthquake, or tornado strikes, an individual loss occurs from a fire, flooding from a washing machine or a burst frozen pipe, or theft occurs, it is important that the business can survive and resume normal operations. Disaster preparedness is the key and it can be simple. Fireman's Fund Risk Services consultants recommend these steps to prepare your homebased or small business to cope with any disaster: Safety * Make an evacuation plan and practice with employees and family members. * Change all smoke alarm batteries once a year. * Be sure fire extinguishers are available and in working order. * Keep supplies such as canned food, water, batteries and flashlights easily accessible.

N

Business * Inventory items and equipment used in the business. Video or photograph the items and keep in a location away from the property. * Pick an alternate location to relocate to temporarily and keep the business running. * Be sure to back up computer records regularly and store off site. * Include provisions to cover continuing

payroll expenses in your financial plan. * Create a communication plan via e-mail, phone and/or text messaging to get a hold of employees in the event of a disaster or loss. * Contact information for all vendors should be kept up to date and accessible, including insurance agent and policy numbers. * Temporary repairs may be necessary and should be documented. Having business insurance is another important way small business owners can prepare their companies to deal with possible disasters. Business insurance usually covers things like business interruption, lost wages, lost revenue and extra expenses such as temporary rental space, equipment and moving expenses. Insurance "Business insurance can mean the difference between staying in business and having to shut down after a loss," says Petersen. It is important for business owners to discuss the emergency plan with employees, and provide training and periodic testing of the plan, according to the Institute for Business & Home Safety. Employees should be notified any time changes are made and a current copy of the plan should be kept where employees can refer to it easily. Protect your business by carrying proper limits of liability insurance. Homeowner insurance won't cover business liability losses. Business insurance is separate from personal insurance. Worker's compensation, employer professional liability, libel and slander coverages, etc. must be considered to protect the business owner in case of lawsuits. Automobiles that are used for business and may be driven by employees in the course of employment require a separate commercial auto insurance policy. Insurance agents are usually small business owners themselves and offer great advice to their fellow small business owners. They are local and knowledgeable of the resources in the community. Protecting your business investment is key to its survival and prosperity. Take time to plan ahead and avoid stress later.

Caltrain Faces $30M Budget Shortfall and Drastic Service Cuts

A

s Caltrain begins its budget process it faces a $30 million deficit and the prospect of drastic cuts to its serv-

ice.

Under the current budget scenario, cuts could be as severe as a reduction in service to 48 trains that would operate only during the weekday commute. All other service would be eliminated including: weekday service outside the commute peak, weekend service and service south of the San Jose Diridon station. The schedule also would require the suspension of service at up to seven stations. Caltrain is the only Bay Area transit system without a permanent, dedicated funding source such as a sales tax. Instead the railroad has relied on contributions from its three partner agencies - the City and County of San Francisco, the San Mateo County Transit District and the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority – to balance its budget. In Fiscal Year 2011, passenger fares make up around 44 percent of the operating budget and contributions from the partner agencies make up 34 percent. “We are not saying that this is what we are going to do, or where we are going to end up,” said Executive Officer for Public Affairs Mark

Simon. “But this is where we are starting.” Caltrain currently operates 86 weekday trains, including 22 express trains, with an average ridership of 40,000. Saturday service includes 36 local trains and four express trains; Sunday service includes 32 local trains and four express trains. Over the last few years, Caltrain has made aggressive efforts to reduce costs and maintain service. For the last three fiscal years, salaries have been frozen. Employees will have taken a total of 17 furlough days from FY09 through FY11. Jan. 1, four weekday trains during the midday were eliminated and fares were increased 25 cents for each zone. In an effort to generate additional revenue, a pilot program for weekend Baby Bullet service was introduced. In 2011, Caltrain administrative staff costs make up only 6.4 percent of its operating budget, below the rate at Bay Area and other comparable commuter rail agencies. SamTrans is expected to reduce its annual contribution to Caltrain by approximately $4.7 million. If the other partners follow suit, the budget shortfall is expected to be $30 million. At its Feb. 3 meeting, the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board, which owns and operates Caltrain, will be asked to call for two public hear-

ings, one on the proposed service changes and one to declare a fiscal emergency. Four community meetings will be held throughout the Caltrain service area on Feb. 17, followed by a formal public hearing on March 3. A start date for any service changes has yet to be determined. There is growing attention among commu-

nity stakeholders to the need for a permanent, dedicated source of funding for Caltrain. The Silicon Valley Leadership Group will hold a summit on Jan. 21 at Stanford University and the Friends of Caltrain, a grassroots group of Caltrain supporters, will hold a public meeting on Jan. 29 at the SamTrans offices in San Carlos.

Estudiantes latinos afirman que abogados deben incluir la educación Por Kristin Loiacono American Bar Association

S

AN FRANCISCO — “Cuando yo tenía once años de edad me dijeron que el papel de la mujer era en la cocina pero yo quiero que mi vida sea diferente”, dijo Norma Pérez, una estudiante junior en Mission High School de San Francisco. Pérez fue una de los cinco estudiantes que testificaron en la segunda vista regional de la Comisión sobre los Derechos Legales y Responsa-

bilidades de los Hispanos de la American Bar Association (Colegio de Abogados de los Estados Unidos) que tuvo lugar el jueves en San Francisco. Pérez dijo que sus planes futuros incluyen cursar estudios para convertirse en abogada. Esta alumna del onceno grado, que llegó a los Estados Unidos hace dos años desde Guatemala sin saber inglés, expresó sus aspiraciones educacionales ante la comisión con fluidez en su reciente adquirido inglés. Los estudiantes que testificaron les recorda-

ron a los comisionados las razones por las cuales están celebrando estas vistas — para promover la responsabilidad cívica, la equidad y la justicia entre todos los segmentos de la sociedad. “Nosotros los observamos a ustedes”, dijo la estudiante Tahitia Dean de la Universidad de California en Berkeley, al grupo de abogados y jueces de la comisión. “A los que nos han preparado el camino … y continuaremos demostrando que somos merecedores de esos esfuerzos”, añadió Dean. Dean, quien es una estadounidense de primera generación y cuyos padres emigraron legalmente, habló de la necesidad de que los estudiantes de bajos ingresos encuentren recursos adicionales que les permitan hacer realidad sus sueños de tener una carrera universitaria. “Con frecuencia los latinos se ven obligados a escoger entre la pasión y el sentido práctico” cuando se trata de permanecer en el college o sobrevivir”, señaló Dean. El Comisionado Eduardo Padrón, presidente del Miami Dade College, comentó que en este centro de estudios: “la mayoría de los estudiantes trabajan y el 38 por ciento vive en la pobreza. Una visita a la sala de emergencias del hospital o un aumento en el alquiler de la vivienda son causa suficiente para que muchos estudiantes dejen los estudios”. “En la economía basada en conocimientos del siglo XXI un individuo tiene muy pocas oportunidades de progresar si no tiene un título universitario”, continuó diciendo Padrón. “El college es una necesidad real en nuestra sociedad

pero se necesitan recursos y respaldo financiero para terminar esos estudios superiores”. Los estudiantes de escuela secundaria que testificaron en el foro público señalaron que están interesados en estudios que incluyan college y aún más. Noe Rivas, un estudiante senior, dijo que sus deseos de convertirse en médico lo impulsaron a dejar su familia en El Salvador y venir a los Estados Unidos — solo y a la edad de 15 años. El viaje le tomó dos meses con paradas durante el mismo para trabajar y ganar algún dinero. Se decidió a emprender este viaje porque de acuerdo con sus palabras: “En El Salvador el gobierno no podía proveerme una educación superior”. Jeffrey Flores, un estudiante de onceno grado, dijo que pasó la mayor parte de su vida en escuelas privadas pero que ahora asiste a una escuela secundaria pública que carece de recursos. Se pregunta cuál será el destino de sus compañeros de estudios así como su propio destino ya que en algunas clases hay hasta 30 estudiantes y la escuela ofrece muy pocas clases de nivel avanzado (AP) y de honores. Alvin Ramírez dijo que sus padres trabajan las 24 horas del día para cuidarlo y proveerle todo lo que necesita, y añadió: “si asisto al college algún día seré yo quien me ocupe de ellos”. La Comisión sobre los Derechos Legales y Responsabilidades de los Hispanos de la American Bar Association se va a reunir en New York para su próximo foro público regional el 23 de marzo.

Accessible Money for College

S

an Jose, California— Local high school seniors attending Cash for College student financial aid workshops are eligible for a raffled $1,000 scholarship. The California Student Opportunity and Access Program (Cal-SOAP) of San Jose, in collaboration with local colleges and school districts, will host a series of 17 Cash for College workshops from January to February 2011 throughout the San Jose area. High school seniors and college students are encourage to attend the workshops in order to receive FREE one-on-one assistance with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). All high school seniors who attend are entered into a raffle for a $1,000 scholarship (more than one scholarship may be raffled per workshop), provided by the California Student Aid Commission. Other prizes will also be available. Last year, 1,197 parents and students from 40 high schools participated in one of the 14 workshops held across the San Jose. Eighty percent of the students completed their FAFSA onsite. Eighteen $1,000 scholarships were awarded and there was a 49% increase in attendance from the previous year. Scholarship lists and other financial literacy resources were also

“College graduation is a national priority,” says Jennifer Andaluz. “Colleges have historically served the wealthy and the privileged, not the poor and disenfranchised. We need to chart a new course to college success for low-income communities.” (Photo by Michelle Longosz)

Downtown College Prep releases data on college persistence and graduation rates

J

anuary.- Downtown College Prep has released its first- ever “College Success Report Card,” measuring high school students’ rates of college eligibility, enrollment, persistence, and graduation. The report is believed to be the first of its kind produced by a K-12 organization. Nationwide, only 10% of low-income students graduate from college in 6 years compared to 77% for high-income students. DCP graduates—low-income Latino students—complete college at 5x the rate of their peers. “K-12 education has the responsibility to prepare low-income students of color for college success and colleges have the responsibility to build a path to degree attainment that is responsive to the unique needs of first-genera-

tion college students,” says DCP co- founder and executive director, Jennifer Andaluz. Downtown College Prep’s mission is to prepare underachieving students, who will be the first in their family to go to college, to thrive at four-year universities. The school measures its success on whether students graduate from college. DCP was the first charter high school in Silicon Valley and is one of the few schools in California to focus explicitly on college success for low-achieving urban students. DCP has graduated nearly 400 students in seven graduating classes. DCP opened its second school in the north San Jose community of Alviso in August 2008. A third school will open in the east San Jose community of Alum Rock in September 2011.

Morning Show “Al Despertar” Now Broadcasting Live 

Evite los riesgos de una hipoteca Por Veronica Alvarez, Union Bank, N.A.

S

AN FRANCISCO, CA,– Beginning Monday, January 10, 2011, Bay Area audiences will wake up to a new live and expanded two-hour edition of KDTV Univision 14’s award-winning morning show, “Al Despertar.” The live production will be broadcast each weekday from Univision’s downtown San Francisco studios with the first hour airing on KDTV Univision 14 from 6am-7am and the second hour airing on sister station KFSF TeleFutura 66 from 7am-8am. The program will be the Bay Area’s only live, locally-produced morning show available in Spanish. “We are very excited to launch this enhanced production of ‘Al Despertar,’ offering our viewers up-to-the minute news and information for two-hours each morning,” said Maelia Macin, SVP and regional director, Univision Television Group. “In addition to the lively segments with local community, celebrity and business guests that our viewers have always enjoyed, the new ‘Al Despertar’ will also feature local news, weather and traffic updates, as well as culturally relevant programming that is unique from other stations.” The new “Al Despertar” will be co-hosted by Kira Vilanova and Fabiola Kramsky, with news reporting from Flavio Lacayo. “Al Despertar’s” wide variety of segments includes reports on immigration, health, parenting, fashion, science, entertainment and horoscopes, among others. Live reports from Univision Radio’s broadcast booths featuring La Kalle and Estereo Sol personalities will highlight the show. Bay Area viewers will be integrated into the program regularly as well, as “Al Despertar” invites viewers to text or email their questions in the daily La Pregunta del Dia (Question of the Day) segment. With a format that is live, local, more varied and faster paced, Univision expects to boost audience significantly in the early morning time period. In its previous format as a prerecorded one-hour program airing 6-7am, “Al Despertar” was already highly competitive in the time period, averaging more Bay Area Adult 18-34 viewers than “NBC11 News Bay Area” regardless of language, according to the recent November 2010 Nielsen Station Index. Among Hispanic audiences, “Al Despertar” was also outperforming the majority of competition in the time period, including audience advantages in the Adult 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54 demos over “ABC7 Morning News,” “CBS5 Morning News” and “KRON4 Morning News,” in addition to others, according to the most recent November 2010 Nielsen Station Hispanic Index (NHSI).

Para muchos clientes, la adquisición de una vivienda es la compra más grande que realizarán en sus vidas. Los errores que se cometen al establecer una hipoteca pueden provocar desde pequeños inconvenientes hasta un desastre financiero. Siga los siguientes pasos para evitar los riesgos más comunes: Haga su tarea

Conozca los diferentes términos y las tasas disponibles, así como cualquier programa de préstamos para compradores de viviendas. Existe una gran variedad de préstamos disponibles y no todos se ajustan a su medida. Reúnase con un banquero de confianza para encontrar la hipoteca más acorde a sus necesidades. Ahorre un pago inicial adecuado

Cuanto más dinero pueda depositar hacia su pago inicial, su hogar tendrá más plusvalía y más bajos serán sus pagos hipotecarios. Si usted tiene menos del 20% para abonar como pago inicial, probablemente tendrá que pagar un seguro hipotecario que protege al banco contra el incumplimiento. Verifique su informe de crédito

Obtenga copias de su informe de crédito. Cuestione cualquier error en su informe y asegúrese de que sean eliminados cuando esté listo para solicitar un préstamo. Resuelva otros factores que pueden afectar negativamente su calificación crediticia, como la cancelación de una cuenta vencida o la reducción de la deuda de su tarjeta de crédito. Para obtener un informe de crédito gratuito de cada una de las tres principales oficinas de informes crediticios, visite annualcreditreport.com. Cada informe le muestra cómo corregir errores o presentar explicaciones por retraso en los pagos u otra información negativa que aparezca en éste.

Tenga en cuenta que deberá tener dinero adicional en efectivo para los costos de cierre, que oscilan entre el dos y el seis por ciento del precio de compra de la vivienda. El prestamista hipotecario deberá brindarle un cálculo estimado de buena fe de los costos de cierre dentro de los tres días posteriores a la solicitud, y una vez más antes del cierre. Conserve reservas en efectivo

Expertos recomiendan establecer una cuenta de ahorros para mantener como mínimo el valor equivalente a seis meses de manutención en caso de una emergencia médica o pérdida de empleo. De este modo, si surge un gasto imprevisto, no tendrá que correr el riesgo de sufrir un juicio hipotecario. Seleccione la hipoteca correcta

Una hipoteca debe ajustarse a su estilo de vida particular. Comuníquese con Veronica Alvarez al (408) 286-1701 para recibir asistencia acerca de los pasos a seguir para comprar una vivienda.

Don't Turn a Deaf Ear to Safe Ear Cleaning

(NewsUSA) t's automatic -- you finish your shower and reach for a pack of cotton-tipped swabs. After all, if you don't clean out your ears, wax will build up and give you an infection, right? Actually, your body produces cerumen, or earwax, for a reason. Earwax is sticky, allowing it to trap dust, dirt, pollen, insects or anything else that might otherwise enter the ear canal. Without it, our ear drums would be left vulnerable to foreign particles that could cause infections. That said, our bodies don't always know when to stop producing wax. When earwax builds up, it can interfere with the ear drum's ability to conduct sound. Some people may develop hard earwax, which can lead to pain. Likewise, many doctors recommend that those with hearing aids have their ears cleaned, as excessive earwax can reduce hearing aids' effectiveness. But cleaning your ears doesn't mean grabbing a cotton-tipped swab. In fact, sticking objects like swabs or bobby pins into the ear canal can lead to bigger problems. Cotton-tipped swabs can impact earwax or push it onto the eardrum. Luckily, one company has produced the most complete and effective ear-cleaning kit that is also safe for the eardrum. Mack's ProRinse Earwax Removal Kit (www.macksearplugs.com) consists of FDA-approved earwax-removal drops, AquaBlock Earplugs, steady-flow syringe with tri-stream rinse tip and an ear wash rinse tub. The silicone earplugs hold in the drops, giving them ample time to break up and soften earwax. The tri-stream rinse tip directs water toward the walls of the ear canal. Pressure cannot build up while you rinse earwax out of your ear, and the tip is shaped to reduce the risk of overinsertion. In a study conducted by the Department of Pediatric Otolaryngology at the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh and the Department of Otolaryngology at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, the kit was found to be effective and safe in removing earwax from children's ears. Better yet, the kids tolerated the process, and their hearing improved afterward.

Five gym-free fitness ideas (ARA) itness should be fun and affordable. It should not be boring, time-consuming or costly. Make your exercise routine a bit more exciting this year with some fitness activities you can do without an expensive gym membership. 1. Sports hoop your way to slimmer shape The thought of hula hoops probably conjures memories from your childhood, but the fact is hula hooping is a great fitness activity. Sports Hoops are large, weighted fitness hoops that adults use to tone and lose weight. These affordable hoops are easy and fun to use, and can help you lose weight. If you're a certified personal trainer looking for something new and exciting for your clients, consider attending a certified trainer program where you'll learn the knowledge and tools to facilitate your own fitness hoop class and instruct personal training sessions. 2. Try a new activity you've never done before There's no better way to get your blood pumping and your body moving than trying something you've never done before. Always wondered what it's like to rock climb? Sign up for a class, or see if your local sports store has a free rock climbing wall. How about trying ice skating, surfing or even acrobatics? If a new activity is a little intimidating, you may not want to do it alone. Ask a friend to do it with you and you're sure to get a great workout and a wonderful memory. 3. Join a walking or running group

F

Walking and running are great physical activities that burn calories and tone the body. Discover the parks and neighborhoods around you by planning regular walks. Consider finding a walk/run buddy to keep you motivated. Or, look online to find walking and running groups that plan regular outings and offer a supportive, team environment. 4. Join a sport Remember how much fun it was to play sports growing up? Adult teams can be just as fun, providing great exercise and camaraderie. Does your work or church group have a softball team? Maybe your friends like to bowl and you could form a bowling team. From broom ball, tennis, golf and more, team sports keep the spirit of healthy, friendly competition alive. 5. Visit your library and request workout DVDs The library is a great community resource and it can also help keep you in shape. Because checking out books and DVDs is absolutely free, the library is the perfect place to research new types of exercise to spice up your normal routine. Try searching for Pilates, yoga and aerobic DVDs. You likely can request them to be sent to your preferred pickup location too. Some books and DVDs are geared toward specific age groups, so teens, adults and even seniors can find appropriate workout inspiration. (Photo by ARAcontent)

La belleza es clave para el autoestima El tratamiento de manchas en el rostro es muy solicitado por los pacientes. El cambio climático, las rayos ultravioletas manchan y deterioran la piel. “El tratamiento es corto-dependiendo el estado de la piel- y las pacientes salen muy contentos y satisfechos de ver un gran cambio en ellos”, dijo Vannesa Rodriguez, Asistente Médico. Por Rosario Vital El Observador o hay mujer ni hombre feo. Sino mujeres y hombres mal arreglados o descuidados. La edad, el sol y la vida que uno lleva comienza a marcarse a través de arrugas y las condiciones de la piel. Desde los consejos de la abuela con los pepinos en los párpados, avena en la cara entre otras recetas caseras, ayudaron a sus generaciones a resaltar la belleza de cada ser humano. Ahora que la ciencia ha avanzado, el uso de cremas seguido de un tratamiento láser o faciales (peelings) hace una belleza segura que esté al alcance de todos. Vamos a notar a personas con complejos nacidos por algún defecto o deterioro físico. “Cuando uno cuida su persona logra mejorar su autoestima. La gente se siente cómoda y ayuda a fortalecer la confianza. Por eso la tendencia de los programas de estética tienen esa misión. Se trata de ayudar a cada individuo a que se sienta seguro, confiado de si mismo”, dijo la Dra. T. Zlatanova, MD del Centro de P3 Cosmetic Cli-

N

nic. En estas sociedades las tendencias de las cirujías estéticas no es alguna novedad. Hay personas que se abstienen a hacerse cirugías, las consideran dolorosas y para otros resultan costosas. Sin embargo existe la otra tendencia que ayuda a que toda persona se vea bien sin necesidad de pasar por el bisturí. Las clínicas de estética ayudan a través de tratamientos no muy costosos a que las personas se sientan bien. “Los tratamientos son largos (a veces) y muy efectivos. Las cirugías muchas veces no obtienen los resultados naturales como uno espera. A veces una cirugía es irreversible sino se obtienen los resultados esperados. Se corta por aquí y por allá y ya no se puede hacer más. Un tratamiento largo permite ver mejoras. Muchas personas se aplican el bótox y la sonrisa y expresión en sus rostros cambian”, explica la Dra. T. Zlatanova. ¿A qué edad es ideal un tratamiento? Para la Dra. Zlatanova la edad ideal para iniciar un tratamiento es cuando uno supera

los 30. “Una persona ya sea hombre o mujer debe empezar un tratamiento a los 35 para cuidar la piel, con limpiezas faciales y lograr que el rostro se vea saludable. A esto se debe sumar una buena alimentación”,explicó la especialista. En el Área de la Bahía hay muchos centros locales que ayudan a sus pacientes a seguir consejos o a pasar por estos programas de rejuvenecimiento. Tome mucha atención que estos centros deben tener de cabecera a una doctora especialista en esto. En San José, P3 Cosmetic Clinic recientemente ha inaugurado su centro para la comunidad latina. Además está al alcance de los bolsillos. “Lo bueno de todo esto es que tratamos que la gente se vea bien y esto es una clave para levantar el autoestima”, dijo Vanessa Rodriguez, Asistente Médica de este centro de belleza. Las personas que deseen hacer alguna consulta pueden llamar al (408) 649-1501 o al (408) 275-1035. El centro está ubicado en la 250 Race St. en San José . Visite www.P3CosmeticClinic.com

From Prada to Nada

F

rom Prada to Nada, a modern twist on Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility, is a new romantic comedy starring Camilla Belle, Alexa Vega, Wilmer Valderrama, with Kuno Becker and Academy Award® nominee Adriana Barraza (Babel, Actress in a Supporting Role, 2006). It’s a whimsical fish-out-of-water story of two spoiled sisters: Nora (Camilla Belle), a law student, and Mary (Alexa Vega), an undergrad party girl, living with their father in a luxurious mansion in Beverly Hills. Mary has become so “90210” she refuses to admit she is of Mexican descent. When dad suddenly passes away, their posh lives are turned upside down. They discover they have been left penniless and are forced to move into their estranged aunt Aurelia’s (Adriana Barraza) modest but lively home in the Latino-centric Boyle Heights neighborhood of East LA. They are terrified to leave

their world of privilege; neither Nora nor Mary speak Spanish or have ever had to take on actual responsibility. The girls gradually adapt to their new environment; their BMW and Prius are traded for the public bus and a used car. As they embrace the culture that for so long they refused to accept, they both discover romance, the true meaning of family, and they learn that the life of PRADA actually means NADA without love, family and community. Lionsgate presents this in association with Televisa and OddLot Entertainment, an OddLot Entertainment Gilbert Films Lionsgate Televisa Hyperion Films production. Película realizada con el estímulo fiscal del Artículo 226 de la Ley del Impuesto Sobre la Renta (Eficine).

“Ofiuco” el nuevo signo del zodiaco

Por Mario Jiménez Castillo novoeu28@gmail.com El Obsevador

G

ran conmoción está causando dentro de la comunidad astrológica la aparición de un nuevo signo zodiacal. Aparentemente “Ofiuco” es el signo número 13, un signo que supuestamente fue ignorado por los astrólogos desde muy tempranas épocas. Parece ser que el Sol orbita además de las doce constelaciones de la Vía Láctea, en otra constelación conocida como “Ophiuchus El Serpentario”, se cree que debe ser tomado en cuenta el tránsito del Sol por la Eclíptica entre el 30 de noviembre y el 17 de diciembre. Esta situación viene a cambiar por completo los designios y pronósticos astrológicos a los que ya estamos acostumbrados, pues casi la gran mayoría ya no perteneceríamos a nuestro signo habitual sino al signo anterior o al posterior. Toda mi vida me he sentido orgulloso de ser nativo del signo Escorpión opina Walter Mendoza, pero parece ser que con la nueva configuración astral, ahora resulta que soy del signo Virgo. ¿¿¿What??? El emblema tradicional de la medicina es el mismo símbolo de “Ofiuco’. Ahora según esta teoría los signos del zodiaco no tendrán la misma duración, la primavera no dará inicio en marzo y todos los libros de astrología y los horóscopos deberán ser reescritos y configurados de una manera diferente. Con eso de que Plutón ya no es un planeta y Ofiuco es el nuevo signo zodiacal, la astrología está siendo remecida desde sus cimientos más profundos. A continuación la configuración y nuevas fechas de los ahora supuestos 13 signos del zodiaco: Aries- del 21 de abril al 13 de mayo Tauro- del 14 de mayo al 24 de junio Géminis-del 25 de junio al 20 de julio Cáncer- del 21 de julio al 19 de agosto Leo-del 20 de agosto al 14 de septiembre Virgo- del 15 de septiembre al 31 de octubre Libra- del 1 de noviembre al 21 de noviembre Escorpión del 22 de noviembre al 29 de noviembre Ofiuco del 30 de noviembre al 17 de diciembre Sagitario del 18 de diciembre al 19 de enero Capricornio del 20 de enero al 15 de febrero Acuario del 16 de febrero al 11 de marzo Piscis del 12 de marzo al 20 de abril Bastante confusa la situación que hoy enfrenta la astrología con los últimos descubrimientos, sin embargo, la última palabra no ha sido dicha y estoy casi convencido que los horóscopos, las cartas natales y los pronósticos astrológicos mantendrán su mismo formato, el mismo patrón que se ha venido utilizando desde hace varios milenios. Por nuestra parte el horóscopo mensual de EO mantendrá el mismo patrón con el que lo hemos venido realizando. Tendrán que realizarse innumerables estudios al respecto para que el signo “Ofiuco” se decrete oficialmente como el signo 13 del zodiaco, el signo de la nueva era. Próxima semana: horóscopo chino 2011.

Defiende Messi su “Balón de Oro”

Gran Final

P

Copa “30 Aniversario El Observador” Por Rosario Vital - El Observador ras 10 semanas de competencia llega a su fin el torneo futbolístico “Copa 30 Aniversario El Observador”. Recordemos que este torneo se hizo en honor a los 30 años que celebra la casa editora reportando historias de gran interés para la comunidad latina. El torneo que se lleva por cuarto año consecutivo y fue organizado por la Liga de Fútbol Pacífico “8” y la Fundación El Observador. Ambas organizaciones sin fines de lucro se unieron para promover la sana diversión y unir a vecindarios y comunidades a través del deporte. “Nos sentimos orgullosos de concluir este tor-

T

arís, (Notimex).- El delantero argentino Lionel Messi, del equipo Barcelona, dijo que aún goza luego de conseguir, contrario a los pronósticos, el Balón de Oro de la FIFA y aseguró que fue merecido pese a la calidad de los otros nominados, los españoles Xavi Hernández y Andrés Iniesta. En entrevista publicada por la revista France Football, Messi se refirió a las críticas recibidas tras la obtención del Balón de Oro y aseguró que no tiene "nada que justificar porque no robé nada", al tiempo de recordar que con Iniesta y Xavi, ambos también del cuadro culé, mantiene una relación cercana. "Entre nosotros no hay envidias. Formamos un vestuario unido. Somos más que socios, somos amigos. Xavi es el mejor jugador del

mundo en su posición", al igual que Iniesta en la suya", mencionó. Por otra parte, "La Pulga" descartó que el salario que actualmente gana sea motivo para cambiarlo, después de tener una vida humilde en su país natal. "No me gusta hablar de dinero. Sé que gano mucho, pero no miro mis cuentas todos los días. Mi padre y mi abogado los que se ocupan de eso. Mi mayor placer es tener un balón en los piés", aseguró. Por último, elogió a su director técnico en el Barcelona, Josep Guardiola, a quien calificó como alguien que "no deja pasar nada, ya que nos corrige el más mínimo error".

neo y de honrar con esta fiesta deportiva al periódico que semana a semana y sin interrupciones cubre lo que acontece en nuestras ciudad”, dijo Luis Zavala, miembro de la liga deportiva. Por su parte el propietario y director de El Observador y El Observador Foundation, Hilbert Morales agradeció a la liga la motivación que despliegan en nuestras comunidades. La gran final tendrá lugar el próximo 23 de enero a las 9:30 am en la Escuela Primarial Robert Randall, localizada en la 1300 Edsell Dr. en Milpitas. Chelsea vs Pachuca disputan el tercer lugar, Kievo vs Jaguares se juegan la gran final.

Cuauhtémoc tiene para rato

M

éxico,(Notimex).- El delantero Cuauhtémoc Blanco celebró su cumpleaños número 38 y aún tiene cuerda para seguir en el futbol, ya sea en el máximo circuito, en la Liga de Ascenso o en el extranjero. Blanco nació un 17 de enero de 1973 y a su corta edad ya había dado muestras de su calidad y debutó en el América el 2 de diciembre de 1992, con una buena actuación bajo la dirección técnica del holandés Leo Beenhakker. En toda su carrera, el “10” de la selección nacional disputó un total de 333 juegos con América, con el que marcó 125 goles para convertirse en el segundo mejor goleador del conjunto azulcrema, sólo por debajo de Luis

Roberto Alves "Zague".
