n an important pronouncement at a White House press conference today, President Obama made it clear th at m andatory E -Verify w ithout comprehensive i mmigration r eform i s unacceptable, saying “We need to have a more balanced appr oach than just a verification system.”   He once again spelled out his strong support for a comprehensive immigration reform package, one that includes “tough border security, going after employers that are illegally hiring and exploiting workers, and making sur e that we also have a pathway to legal status for those who are living in the shadows right now.”  In May, the White House outlined a similar position in a “blueprint” on immigration reform, stating that the expansion of E-Verify “must be accompanied by a legalization program that allows unauthorized workers to get right with the law.”  In addition to reiterating his support for comprehensive immigration reform and the D REAM Act, the P resident also made it clear that he is fully aware of the problems with the curr ent E-Verify program and how the program’s faults harm U.S. workers and businesses.  He’s right to join the many voices from across the spectrum in raising these cautions.  Currently s ome 4 % o f e mployers and only 2% of small businesses - use EVerify.  Under Lamar Smith’s bill, 100% of employers will have to use the system within three short years.  What will be the impact of such a dramatic expansion of E-Verify on businesses, workers, and taxpayers?  According to a recent analy-

sis by the Center for American Progress, an estimated 770,000 American workers could l ose j ob o ffers d ue t o E -Verify’s error-prone databases, the mandate would cost small business an estimated $2.6 billion, and, based on a similar bill scored b y the non-par tisan Congr essional Budget Office in 2007, $17 billion in tax r evenue would be lost o ver 10 years as more jobs move into the underground economy .  R emarkably, these costs would be in exchange for a system that i dentifies unauthorized workers only 46% of the time.   According to Frank Sharry, Executive Director o f A merica’s Voice E ducation Fund: “The President gets it. The way to end illegal immigration is through comprehensive immigration reform, an approach that balances enfor cement with legal immigration in ways both effective and humane.  In stark contrast, mandatory E-Verify on its own will not only hurt ordinary American workers and small business o wners, it will driv e payr oll workers off the books, allo w bad actor employers to undercut honest ones, and send the American agricultur e industry out of business and overseas. The President knows the system’ s flaws.  Let’s hope members of both parties heed his warnings, move towards comprehensive reform, and resist a bill that will make our dysfunctional immigr ation system even worse.” America’s Voice Education Fund — Harnessing the po wer of American voices and American values to win common sense immigration reform.

t is very interesting to learn about the historical development of America. Over time a transition occurred from being 13 British colonies to becoming an independent sovereign nation known as the United States of America. The 4th of July national holiday is to commemorate the bir th of our American nation on July 4, 1776 which is when the Declar ation of Independence was endorsed by the elected representatives of the original 13 states who attended the Continental Congress. This document announced the just separ ation of these 13 colonies fr om Great Britain and offered a justification ther efor. It stated why the Continental Congress on July 2, 1776 by the vote of 12 colonies, with New York abstaining, resolved that these “United Colonies ar e, and of right ought to be, free and independent states.” Thus the United States of America, as a so vereign nation, began 236 years ago. It is r ecommended that the dev elopmental history of America be understood today because the residents of these thir teen colonies yearned to be fr ee from the abusiv e governance of the British royalty. There was the issue of “taxation without r epresentation”. The armed confl ict began on April 19, 1775 which became the “American Revolution”. The colonists just wanted to secure their personal rights which they then described “as those of mankind as well as those of Englishmen.” During 1775 George Washington emerged as a leader of the American Army located in Boston. Thomas Paine’s ‘Common Sense’ directly denounced both Great Britain and its monar chy. It began to exercise a potent influence. The Nor th Carolina delegation, on April 12, 1776, were specifically authorized to vote for independence. On May 15, 1775 the Virginia convention instructed its delegates to offer the motion to declare independence. Richard Henry Lee brought that m otion forward which was finally adopted on July 2, 1776. Only the New York delegation abstained because it had not yet been authorized to vote for independence. A committee, whose members were Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman and Robert R. Livingston, were chosen to prepare the statement justifying the decision to assert independence, should it be taken. The ‘Declaration of Independence’ was written mainly by Thomas Jefferson, who had a talent for political philosophy and was the author of “A Summary View of the Rights of British America ” published during 1774. Jefferson wrote the first draft at the request of the other committee members who later made several ‘word-smithing’ adjustments.

Several phrases of the Declar ation of Independence have since exerted profound influence in America. Especially the phrase “We, the People hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with cer tain unalienable Rights, that among these are life, liber ty and the pursuit of Happiness.” An original copy of this par chment document is now housed in the Libr ary of Congress, Washington, D.C. What followed was the crafting of the Constitution of the United States of America which was adopted in 1787. The first ten amendments to the Constitution, known as the “Bill of Rights,” were adopted on September 25, 1789 by the First Congress of the United States. These were ratified by three-fourths of the state legislatures. Since then additional constitutional amendments have been approved. The American Democr acy is a form of r epresentative government where the people ar e involved in making national policy . As a form of governance American democracy is still “a work in progress” in that many issues have been debated and eventually proposed as an amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The end of slav ery occurred after the Civil War (1865) and the right of women to vote are two examples. These are mentioned because it is essential that ordinary American citizens need to know that they have a voice in their governance. It is patriotic t o p rovide t houghtful c ommentary o n th e many challenges that confr ont America today . America governance today is still evolving and developing. Knowing how our democr atic form of go vernance was dev eloped is essential to havi ng ‘roots’ here. Too many residents have superficial awareness of these v ery impor tant principles which constitute, as a whole, American Democracy with its many personal freedoms and responsibilities. Note that today the bipar tisan form of governance is severely stalled because of liberal or conservative ideologies. Today, Congress has 535 elected officials: 100 senators (The Senate) and 435 members of the House of R epresentatives (“The House”). The liberals and conser vatives hav e not dealt with the ‘business of the people.’ Perhaps it is time to have a third party which will force the communication, deliberation, compromise, collaboration, coordination. adoption and implementation r equired to enact laws that benefit all of us rather than the few. The business of the people is being neglected while the advantage of the ultr a-wealthy are doing quite well, thank you. A new lev el of checks and balance is needed. Only when the people speak up will things change. That is the curr ent challenge this nation faces. Hav e a patriotic 4th of July 2011.∆

Santa Clara County’s new ambulance service By Cinthia Rodriguez El Observador

S

tarting today , the County o f S anta Clara will hav e Rural/Metro A mbulance a s the new 911 providers o f emergency ambulance ser vices. With more than 60 y ears of experience and service nationally, Rural/Metro, based in Scottsdale, A riz., w ill b e t he new ambulance provider in 32

years. It will take o ver emergency services from American Medical R esponse (A MR), which had been the ambulance provider since 1979. “This contr act means we’re going to get better service at a cheaper cost to the taxpayers of this community,” said Su pervisor G eorge S hirakawa. This agr eement, wor th about $375 million, runs for five years, with the possibility of two thr ee-year extensions.

The company will pr ovide services countywide, with the exception of Palo Alto. “It i s o ur c apital e quipment budget basically, so its all coming from Rural/Metro. And for us, we look at it as an

investment,” s aid C EO Michael DiMino. “It is a very healthy inv estment because we believe that we are going to do a good job her e and we are g oing t o e arn o ur f air share of profit based on running the ambulances and providing the services.” The company will bring 55 new ambulances to the County of Santa Clar a, an investment of $175,000 in each ‘state of the ar t’ ambulance. Among R ural/Metro’s 300 local employees are 268 para-

medics and emergency medical technicians, most of who were formerly emplo yed b y AMR. “It is the same people who kno w our str eets; who know our communities; who know the fir e depar tments, the hospitals, etc. That was not only the right thing to do, but was very, very wise,” said Supervisor Mike Wasserman. Expect more ambulances in the county which all hav e been fi nanced b y Rural/Metro. Along with new

cardiac monitors, po wer lift gurneys, bicycles and all-terrain vehicles. These additions can lead to better co verage and faster response times. “Fortunately I’ ve nev er been in an ambulance my entire life,” said Super visor Ken Yeager. “No offense Rural/Metro, I hope never to be in an ambulance, but it is really nice to kno w that if the need arises I’ll be in very good hands.”∆

Recycled Water Study Shows Some Constituents Can Reach Shallow Groundwater

AN JOSE, CA – The Santa Clara Valley Water District r ecently completed a study to evaluate changes in groundwater quality due to the use of r ecycled water for irrigation. The study concluded that m ost, b ut n ot a ll, c onstituents are removed, or, are reduced to low levels as recycled water seeps through the ground and into the gr oundwater basin. About half of the water used each year in Santa Clara County is pumped fr om groundwater basins. The district replenishes these basins with water captured in local reservoirs an d s upplies i mported thr ough the Sacr a-

mento San Joaquin Delta. Protecting the gr oundwater basins is one of the district’s primary goals. Recycled water is used extensively in the county and throughout California for irrigation, commer cial, and industrial purposes. The study included lab based testing and sampling at a South San Jose business campus that was irrigated with r ecycled water for 18 months. Several r ecycled water constituents n ot p reviously detected a rrived i n s hallow groundwater within sev eral months. Traces of nitrosodimethylamine, or N DMA, w ere de-

tected at 30 feet beneath the study area after the site was irrigated with recycled water for several months. The E PA has estimated that more than 98 percent of human exposur es to N DMA come from common foods such as beer, infant formula, hot dogs, and cured meat. It is also a common b yproduct of the process used to disinfect water. No state or feder al regulatory standard for drinking water has been established, although the E PA classifies NDMA as a pr obable human carcinogen.

what you can get fr om them, but what they can gather from y ou. It’s a two-way exchange o f i nformation. To learn more about networking strategies read “Never Eat Alone,” w here a uthor K eith Ferrazzi contends that you’ll be mor e successful if y ou take the relationship-building approach. “You should circulate an d m ake m ultiple n ew contacts at these events,” Redden says. Those who are unsure about how to network should think of it as “ purposeful and engaging communication.” Most people have more of a network of friends, family , former co workers and other connections than they realize. It’s impor tant to shar e y our plans with them and ask for help. “ If y ou d on’t a lready have a network, try volunteering or going back to school both are great ways to meet new people,” Redden adds. Examine your skills and resources You don ’t have to be stuck in a job. Be proactive. Do a personal assessment and ask yourself: What background, skills and experience can I o ffer an employer? “If you’ve been in a job f or 20

years, ask yourself, ‘What do I r eally want to do for a living? ’,” says R edden. “Make some changes and some tough d ecisions. I t m ay n ot be easy, but it’s worth it. Job seeking takes patience.” Update your credentials Many jobs r equire additional education or training. Take classes at local college, or a community or education center. Some nonprofit organizations offer free or low-cost training. I f r equired, o btain certification for your chosen field. “Once you have a developed your ‘brand,’ you’ve got to m ake y ourself m ore m arketable than the next per son,” says Redden.

If so, make sure you can p ut your f inger on w hat you want, so that you can sell yourself to pr ospective em ployers.

If you are looking for a job, you must have a plan.” Establish your targets before attending networking events and job fairs, and keep the conversation brief and to the point. Develop a relationship with employer representatives y ou chat with and remember, it’s not just about

Pursue your passion/your goal A career is more than a job; for some it’s also a passion, and the career path chosen will r equire some work. “Some people get so caught up in life pleasing others and forget they have the option to do what makes them happy,” says Redden. If you are out of work, be more diligent. Until you get to where you want to go, you should be willing to work harder in pursuing your passion. The practice of reinvention takes effort. For people who like deliv ering babies, they are happy when they go to work ev ery morning because they have a passion for what they do. Volunteer with nonprofits Use y our w eekends t o volunteer. “This is an opportunity to suppor t those nonprofits that could benefit from your e xperience,” says Redden. With r einvention, y ou can still give back and offer to help those who are less fortunate. You will gain v aluable work experience in y our career of choice. You can take the M yersBriggs professional or similar assessments offered by many college car eer and empl oyment counselors to measure competencies and areas of interest. “If y ou want a life change, then it’s up to you to do something about it,” says Redden. Be realistic a bout your strengths, skills and r esources. Within r eason a nd with pa ssion, r einventing yourself is possible. ∆

Secrets of a successful resume update

(ARA) It’s always a good idea to keep your resume fresh for employment opportunities. Take the time to polish y our resume so it appeals to emplo yers, because what ma y have worked for you in the past might not be relevant today.

www.el-observador.com | JULY 1 - 7 2011|

“Your resume is a living document,” says Heather VanRiper, assistant director of career services at The Illinois Institute of Ar t Chicago. She points out that workers ar e always learning new skills on the job, at professional d evelopment c onferences a nd seminars. Many of those skills can and should be a part of your updated resume.

But if y ou’re not curr ently looking, why take the time to spruce up an o ld resume? “Who knows when the next oppor tunity will open up?” asks VanRiper. “You could be at a networking event, a dinner party or even on a train commuting home when y ou bump into an oppor tunity that y ou just can ’t pass up . Having your resume ready to go makes y ou look more polished and professional.” VanRiper suggests you take a good look at your experience to see if y ou need to add any new job responsibilities or reflect recent promotions. Have you joined any new professional or ganizations or been elected to a

board? Polish up the skills section of your resume with any new softwar e applications you’ve learned. And don ’t forget to add any foreign languages you know. Since the digital age is here, your resume should keep up. “Add a link to y our work in your r esume. F rom an emplo yer’s point of view, if they can read all about you and also click on a link and see your work, you become visual,” VanRiper says. “Your potential employer can no w see y our capabilities.” Just make sure the materials you are directing employers to, are updated. “A shor t emplo yment history does not mean you’re shor t on skills. Don ’t discredit any experience that you’ve had,” says VanRiper. She adds, “ There’s a lot of v alue in transferable skills like pr oblem solving, customer service and attention to detail. If y ou can demonstrate those skills in your resume, you show that y ou’re an asset to any workplace.” Once you’re done with the updates, VanRiper has one final piece o f advice. “P roofread. P roofread. P roofread. Err ors ar e inexcusable and will cost you the job.” To learn mor e about The Art Institutes schools visit, www.artinstitutes.edu/nz.

ÂżCĂłmo obtener crĂŠditos universitarios?

E

l Senado AcadĂŠmico par a las California Community Colleges (univ ersidades comunitarias de California) —el mayor sistema de educaciĂłn superior de la naciĂłn, con 112 univ ersidades y casi tr es millones de estudiantes matriculados— ha avalado una polĂ­tica que pr oporciona los lineamientos para el uso de los exĂĄmenes del College-L evel Examination ProgramÂŽ (CLEPÂŽ, por sus siglas en inglĂŠs), un programa  de exĂĄmenes de nivel universitario  como base para conceder crĂŠditos de educaciĂłn general. En mayo de 2010, el sistema de la Universidad Estatal de California estableciĂł una polĂ­tica similar. “Las univ ersidades de California, como muchas otras en toda la naciĂłn, buscan formas

de solucionar los desafíos en materia financiera y de matriculación par a graduar a mås estudiantes con menos r ecursos. Como el programa mås utilizado de crÊditos por exåmenes de base universitaria, CLEP ha demostrado ser una herramienta acadÊmicamente sólida para alcanzar ambos objetivos�, asegura Jonell Sånchez, director sÊnior de Iniciativas AcadÊmicas y Desarrollo de Programas de CLEP en el College Board. Aceptado por 2,900 facultades y univ ersidades y administrado en mås de 1,700 centros de examinación, CLEP permite a estudiantes de un amplio abanico de edades y entornos, incluidos miembros del servicio militar, demostrar su dominio del material de niv el universitario en temas introductorios y conseguir un crÊdito universitario. 

Los estudiantes pueden conseguir crĂŠdito por lo que ya saben y pueden poner la quinta marcha para terminar la univ ersidad y ahorrar dinero. Con un puntaje de aprobado en un examen, un estudiante puede ahorrar entre $600 y $2,400 dĂłlares de colegiatura en una instituciĂłn pĂşblica promedio de educaciĂłn superior en un contexto urbano. Los exĂĄmenes CLEP contribuyen a crear una experiencia mĂĄs dinĂĄmica en el salĂłn de clase y aumentar los porcentajes de retenciĂłn. El examen CL EP ubica con pr ecisiĂłn a alumnos preparados, par ticipativos y motiv ados. TambiĂŠn facilita el proceso de transferencia de crĂŠditos de una instituciĂłn acadĂŠmica a otra. “A los funcionarios de ar ticulaciĂłn, directores de centros de transferencia y asesores de la totalidad de las univ ersidades comunitarias de California les emociona que nuestro senado acadĂŠmico para el estado avale la Lista CLEP de EducaciĂłn General para las universidades comunitarias de Californiaâ€?, afirmĂł Dave DeGroot, funcionario de ar ticulaciĂłn en la Univ ersidad Allan Hancock de Santa Barbara. “Muchas de nuestras universidades comunitarias ya cuentan con equivalencias CLEP para la EducaciĂłn General, pero ahora tenemos la esper anza de que muchas mĂĄs de nuestr as univ ersidades

adopten el modelo av alado par a el estado . Tener un denominador común en educación general para el uso del CLEP en verdad ayuda a nuestros estudiantes pues muchos asisten a mås de una universidad comunitaria�. El Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (Consejo para la Educación de Adultos y Empírica), financiado por la F undación L umina reforzó e l p apel f undamental q ue t ienen l as evaluaciones de aprendizaje previo (PLAs por sus siglas en inglÊs) como el CLEP en la consecución de las metas educati vas de nuestr a nación. En un informe de 2010, Fueling the Race to Postsecondary Success: A 48-Institution S tudy of Prior Learning Assessment and Adult Student Outcomes (Impulso para el Êxito de la carrera: un estudio en 48 in stituciones sobre los resultados de la ev aluación de aprendizaje previo y la educación para adultos) el 43 por ciento de los estudiantes de PLA consiguieron una licenciatura, en compar ación con sólo el 15 por ciento de los estudiantes sin PLA.

Summer Brain Drain Affecting America’s Graduation Rates

I

t’s called the “summer brain drain,� and it’s affecting students of all ages. During the long, hot months away fr om school, kids lose knowledge when they don’t engage in educational activities over the summer vacation. On average, students lose appr oximately 2.6 months of grade-level equivalency in mathematical computation skills. This effect is magnified with low-income students; about two-thirds of the ninthgrade achievement gap between lower- and higherincome youth can be explained by unequal access to summer learning opportunities during the elementary-school years. If you think of summer br ain drain as just a mere nuisance to be tackled by our nation’s teachers, think again: o ver one million students in the class of 2010 failed to graduate with a high-school diploma. The national graduation rate currently stands at a dismal 75 percent, due in part to the 15 million youth unsupervised after the school day ends and an additional 24 million in need of supervision during the summer. A low graduation rate contributes to increases in unemployment, poor health, crime

and drug use. It lo wers America’s tax revenue and increases its public-assistance expenses. To seriously address the high-school-dropout crisis, i t i s i mperative t o redefine t he e ducation equation to include community collaborations. These critical pieces of the puzzle — organizations like Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGC A) — provide r efuge f or y outh d uring c ritical o ut-ofschool hours. They aim to give youth a place where they can continue to learn and grow as individuals so they can go on to become productive, caring, responsible adults. To further this goal, BGC A received $1 million from AT&T to expand the “Be Great: Graduate� program that helps rising 8th and 9th graders successfully tr ansition into high school. The Be Gr eat: Graduate program uses established risk factors to identify youth most at risk of dropping out of high school and intervene utilizing a mentorship program, with a proven record of success. To this point, the program has focused on high-school students, but with support from AT&T, BGCA will be expanding the program to younger participants through the launch of “Be Ready.� To learn more about the Be Great and Be Ready programs, visit www.bgca.org.

l Jefe de la Policía de San J osé, C hris Moore le ha toca do enfrentar uno de los retos más duros en esta ciudad. La eliminación de efectivos policiales, el incr emento del crimen y la construcción de la confianza con su comunidad. “Espero que pued an entender que tengo que hacer un balance entr e la seguri dad pública y espero que me ayuden a combatir los actos delictivos”, dijo Moor e durante un entrevista con EO. Los actos de crímenes y violencia han alcanzado un nivel epidémico, a l p unto q ue e n San José hasta el momento se

han registrado 27 homicidios. Algo alarmante en esta ciudad del sur de la bahía. De estos homicidios, 14 están r elacionados a pandi llas, por esta razón el Departamento de Policía de San José, ha i nicia d o u na c ooperación con el depar tamento de Seguridad Nacional (DH S); alianza que ha cr eado controversia y preocupación de bido a que consideran un riesgo debido a que estos agentes son del ICE en otras palabras trabajan para la “migra”. “Nuestra postur a en relación al programa de “comunidades seguras” no ha cambiado. Este acuerdo tiene que ver con seguridad pública y no con inmigración”, dijo el Jefe de Policía, Chris Moore.

La Policía de San José tendrá en sus filas a dos agentes del Departamento de Seguridad Nacional, (DHS siglas en inglés) que operan para el ICE. Aunque la policía dice que el propósito reforzar una división que combate pandillas, la comunidad tiene temor a deportaciones. Anteriormente e l J efe d e Policía de San José ha expr esado p úblicamente q ue n o apoya el pr ograma de comunidades segur as. D esde esta semana dos agentes federales del Departamento de Seguridad Interna forman parte de la Unidad de Pandillas de este departamento de Policía. Debido a l os r ecortes d e presupuesto el depar tamento policial se ha visto afectado con la eliminación de 180 oficiales y según el jefe no cuentan en este momento con alto

Ellos harán inv estigación criminal sobre pandillas. A nosotros no nos interesa el estado migratorio de nadie, sin embar go si son arrestados por delitos y no tienen s us d ocumentos e n

regla s e t ienen q ue i r”, d ijo Moore a EO. Moore e xplicó q ue n o quiere permitir a pandillas de otros estados se apoderen de la ciudad de San José. “Dos agentes de ICE que trabajan a niv el federal harán mucho daño al departamento policial. Para c ombatir l a v iolencia hay que construir buenas relaciones con la comunidad y no crear desconfianza. Si consideran que aplicando la ley más sev era van a reducir los niveles de violencia, están c ometiendo u n g ran error” dijo el Padre de la Iglesia Saint Julie, Jon Pédigo. “Esto s erá u n p rograma que c riminalizará a l a c omunidad inmigrante mucha gente tiene m iedo tr abajar c on l a policía y r eportar c ualquier crimen”, dijo Zelica Rodriguez de la or ganización pr o inmigrante SIREN. “La policía tiene que asociarse con la comunidad y no con ICE par a garantizar la seguridad pública ”, agr egó R odriguez. Por su par te Aarón R esendez también quedó desconcertado con la decisión de la policía. “Es un gr an error y no sabemos qué podrá pasar con todo esto”. “Hay que darle una oportunidad a esta estrategia. No juzguen sino sabemos cómo va a funcionar nuestr o plan, lo que si nos ur ge co ntrarrestar es la violencia de pandillas y no podemos permitir que mueran muchos jóvenes como conse-

cuencia de esto”, dijo Moore. “El Condado de Santa Clara y la ciudad de San José históricamente no han cooperado con l a agencia del ICE debido a la desconfianza que se crea entre la comunidad inmigrante”, dijo el abogado de inmigración Richard Hobbs. Hobbs dijo además que el departamento p olicial t iene que demostrar que los miembros de pandillas son inmigrantes y t ambién q ue e llos son la causa de los d elitos graves en San José. “Y si no se puede demostr ar e sto, entonces es un pr etexto permitir agentes del ICE en sus filas policiales creando temor y hasta depor tando a inmigrantes que no tienen nada que ver con las pandi llas”, dijo el abogado en inmigración. Moore pondrá en práctica este plan por seis meses. Después de esto se hará una ev a luación. Moore aseguró que si nota que los oficiales están tratando de sacar a personas por su estado migratorio pues los retira rá de su división por que la tarea de ellos es combatir la violencia y no v er los estados migratorios. Según el gobierno feder al desde el 2005 a través del programa “Escudos Comunitario” ha logrado 25 mil arrestos de pandilleros en todo el país y se espera que en San José alcance u n g ran é xito d e l a misma manera que se hiz o en Santa Cruz. ∆

O

n June 29, the California DREAM torch made its way to the heart of Silicon Valley, which is San Jose, CA. The torch will make its final stop in Sacramento, in an effor t to r emind Governor Jerry Brown to keep his promise and sign the California DREAM Act. Although the state ’s v ersion of the DREAM Act has nothing to do with gr anting legal st atus t o u ndocumented s tudents, i t would make it easier to pursue higher education. “This is an issue that has been present in our state for a lot of y ears,” said Samantha Vazquez, sophomore at E vergreen Co mmunity C ollege. “ We w ant G overnor B rown t o keep his promise. One of his campaign goals was to pass the D REAM Act, if it r eached his desk.” Vazquez has benefitted from AB 540, the 2001 law that allows students who attended a Californi a high school for at least thr ee years and graduated to qualify for in-state tuition and fees. Yet, she is uncer tain whether she will continue with her education due to the continuing rise in tuition. The Assembly Bill 130 would allow the UC, CSU and community college systems to provide financial aid from their own financial aid

funding resources. The other bill of the state’s DREAM Act is AB 131. That bill would allow undocumented students to qualify for institutional financial aid, Cal Grants, State of C A financial aid grants and other assi stance at the community college level. “It is a good idea at bo th levels because it is the absolute best choice for the nation,” said Rita Cepeda, chancellor of the San Jose/Evergreen Community College District. “We h ave i ndividuals w ho a re e ager, m otivated and want to study. They want to contribute. They want to become experts in their fields. It is an absolute shame that these individuals don’t get a chance.” The C A State Assembly has passed the bills. Both are expected to go to the Senate Appropriations Committee sometime during July 2011. If these bills ar e approved b y the state Senate, both will go back to the Assembly and forwarded to Gov. Jerry Brown for consideration. During the past y ear’s 2010 legislative session similar bills were vetoed by then Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. “My education is r eally important,” said Oraly Heraz, sophomore at De Anza College. “I’m tired of being treated unfairly. Students like myself deser ve the oppor tunity to have an education like anyone else.”∆

Tips for keeping fit this summer (ARA)

S

ummer is here and the time is right for achieving your personal health and fitness goals. Whether you are looking to tone up for the last bit of bikini season or ar e looking t o in crease y our o verall fitness to enjoy the wealth of outdoor recreation available in the sunny summer months and coming fall, making choices that impr ove y our overall health are key. “Exercise is b y far the overall best thing people can do to enhanc e their physical and p sychological w ellbeing,” s ays Dr. Kevin Sverduk, associate professor and chair of the Spor t-Exercise Psychology p rogram a t A r-

gosy U niversity, S outhern California. “Regular exercise will boost y our mood, sharpen your mind, give you greater self-confidence, r educe your chances of getting sick, and expand y our energy.” “We hav e a unique opportunity to exercise more in summer,” sa ys D r. S uzanne Forbes-Vierling, a fitness/cardio instructor and chair of the College of Psy chology an d Behavioral Sciences at Ar gosy U niversity, S an D iego. “Whether it’s biking, powerwalking with friends, trying out a n ew c ardio r outine, dance classes such as African dance, Afr o-Cuban, Latin, belly-dance - try something different and ex citing to shake up an old routine.”

Remember, however, that you should consult your doctor prior to starting any physical activity. Fitness is a bout m ore than what w e do physi cally with o ur bo dies - i t’s a lso about wh at w e p ut i nto o ur bodies. “It’ s impor tant to consider a p ermanent lifestyle shift in how we manage food - and eliminate diets,” says Forbes-Vierling. Niki Wray, registered dietitian and nutrition instructor at The In ternational C ulinary School at The Art Institute of Phoenix agrees. “For a nutritionist, ‘diet’ is the food and beverages that we consume. For most of the public, ho wever, it’s a loaded wor d that implies something w e do for a short time.”

Designed to r emind Americans to adopt healthier eating habits, “M yPlate” has r eplaced t he food pyramid a s the go-to source for nutrition. “As an impr oved visual of a healthier diet, w e’re very excited with the new food plate recently released,” W ray says.

plan,” says Wray. “The goals include eating less, drinking more water instead of beverages with many calories, switching to low-fat dairy options and r educing y our sodium intake.” Sverduk also encourages an u nderstanding o f t he glycemic index when eating. “The glycemic index of foods is a number that correlates to the rate at which food you eat will be digested and converted into sugar. Foods that have higher G I such as breads, rice and sweets, raise the blood sugar lev el v ery quickly. When one ’s blood sugar level is high, the body is stimulated to store the excess sugar as fat. F oods that

have a lo wer G I such as chicken, b eef a nd n uts, ar e digested much slower and do not raise the blood sugar level as high and as quickly . When the blood sugar level is normal or slightly low, the body will be stimulated to burn stored fat,” he says. Blood s ugar l evels c an also be regulated through exercise. Thus eating a reasonable d iet w ith l ow G I f oods and regular bouts of exercise will help burn excess fat. You can l earn m ore a bout t he glycemic index of foods and find the G I for the foods y ou eat at www.glycemicindex.com. “Every day is a new day and an oppor tunity to make healthy choices,” says S verduk. “If you fall off the program, just get back on. Be realistic, consistency and patience ar e the keys to successful lifestyle change.” (Text & photo courtesy of ARA)

Many families find that i t’s best if the comp uter is in the family room — not in kid’s rooms — and used only when you’re present. - Set site limits. Discuss the sites your children want to visit, and discuss which ones they’ re permitted to use. If som e sites are off-limits, explain why you’re vetoing them. - Schoolwork comes first.

(NewsUSA) hether texting, surfing the w eb o r playing video games, r esearch has shown that kids spend mor e than seven hours a day with gadgets. “That, in and of itself, is neither good nor bad,” says Richard Bavaria, Senior Vice President for Education Outreach for Sylvan Learning. “Balance, as in every other aspect of life, is key.” While tech-savvy kids may have a leg up over those without a fundamen tal knowledge, kids tethered to technology may have their own disadvantages — socially, academically and, perhaps, even emotionally. For good or for bad, technology has introduced many “portals of distraction” in kids’ lives — easy ways to get sidetr acked, div erted and o verwhelmed. But as the school y ear progresses, parents want their kids clear ly focused rather than busily distracted. Wonder how you can reach a balance? Bavaria and the experts at Sylvan Learning Center offer the following tips: - Your rules rule. Remember: You’re the boss. Like all rules for kids, the clearer and simpler, the better. - Set time limits. A good rule of thumb for teens is two hours of screen time per d ay, including schoolwork.

a Selección de Paraguay, al mando del técnico Gerardo “Tata” Martino, podría da r l a s orpresa e n l a C opa América 2011 en base a su “inexpugnable” defensa y su tr adicional “garra” para pelear punto a punto su permanencia en el torneo. La mayoría de los comentaristas locales coincide en que Mar tino cuenta con “ muy buen plantel” para obtener resultados auspiciosos en la Copa América. Para los par tidos amistosos que jugó el combinado albirrojo en junio y que sir vieron como preparativo hacia la Copa América, el “Tata” conformó un equipo que tenía la misma base del plantel que par ticipó en el Mundial de Sudáfrica 2010. La Selección de Paraguay ha conseguido solamente dos v eces el título de la Copa América, en 1953 y 1979, por lo que desde hace 32 años no consigue ese trofeo, que es ansiado por toda la afición del país seguidora del balompié.

En la edición 2011 de la Copa América, a jugarse entre el 1 y el 24 de julio en diversas ciudades argentinas, Paraguay formará parte del Grupo B, que integr an además las selecciones de Brasil, Ecuador y Venezuela. Escándalo mexicano Por indisciplina causaron baja del equipo nacional Jonathan Dos Santos, Israel Jiménez, Néstor Vidrio, Marco Fabián de la Mora, Javier Cortés, Jorge Hernández, Néstor Calderón y David C abrera, q uienes d eberían d e h aber participado con la selección mexicana Sub-22 en la Copa América Argentina 2011. Héctor González Iñárritu, dir ector de selecciones nacionales, informó que en su lugar fueron convocados Edgar Pacheco, Christian Alvarez, Antonio G allardo, Mario de Buen, Ulises Dávila, Carlos Orr antia y Oswaldo Alanís. Asi se llevará hasta fines de este mes la Copa América. (Texto y foto de Notimex) ∆
