T

he San Jose Police Department(SJPD) has recently launched the Silicon Valley Internet Crimes Against Children (SVICAC) program to catch Internet predators from interacting inappropriately with under age children. The city has teamed up with several affiliates including the San Mateo County Sheriff’s and Police Departments, and the Santa Clara County Taskforce in this effort. “This is the first time that the San Jose Police Department has teamed up with other police departments in this sort of effort,” said SJPD Detective Kendra Nunes. “It is important for all our departments to work together to keep all children safe from these types of predators.” The SJPD and its affiliates are asking the public to notify authorities about potential predators in their area by calling the Cyber Tip Line: 1-800843-5678. This includes individuals who are in possession of child pornography. According to www.missingkids.com, child pornography exists in multiple formats including print media, videotape, film, CD-ROM, or DVD. It is transmitted on various platforms within the Internet including newsgroups, Internet Relay Chat (chatrooms), Instant Message, File Transfer Protocol, e-mail, websites, and peer-to-peer technology.

It is difficult to describe a “typical” child pornography possessor because there is not just one type of person who commits this crime. In a study of 1,713 people arrested for the possession of child pornography in a 1-year period, the possessors ran the gamut in terms of income, education level, marital status, and age. Virtually all of those who were arrested were men, 91% were white, and most were unmarried at the time of their crime, either because they had never married (41%) or because they were separated, divorced, or widowed (21%). Forty percent (40%) of those arrested were “dual offenders,” who sexually victimized children and possessed child pornography, with both crimes discovered in the same investigation. An additional 15% were dual offenders who attempted to sexually victimize children by soliciting undercover investigators who posed online as minors. “So far, most of those who have been arrested have been men,” said Detective Nunes. “But we have also caught some women through this investigation.” “It is important to get these people off the streets and off the Internet because once a picture is on the Internet, it is on there forever,” added San Jose Police Chief Rob Davis. To contact the Cyber Tip Line call 1-800-8435678, or visit www.missingkids.com.

CORRECTION: EO regrets that the article entitled DIAPERS DRIVE LAUNCHES, EO edition (dated July 23 to 29, 2010, page 6) incorrectly stated that “The Family Wellness Court (FWC) of Santa Clara County launched a 60 day diaper drive…”. The correct sentence version is “The Santa Clara County Commission on the Status of Women and the Office of Women’s Policy launched the 60 days of Diapers Drive. The goal is to raise $5,000 for one year’s supply of diapers for infants and toddlers currently served by the Family Wellness Court.” It is unlawful for any jurist (judge) to solicit any kind of funding for any purpose as it may create a conflict of interest and/or compromise the court’s objectivity. EO apologizes for this error and hopes that no jurist is affected by it. ….The Publisher (Hilbert Morales, M.P.H.)

Building a Green Economy

T

he phrase "building a green economy" means different things to different people, but in general it refers to encouraging economic development that prioritizes sustainability, that is working with nature and not against it in the quest to meet peoples' needs and wants instead of disregarding environmental concerns in the process of growing the economy. The primary way governments around the world are trying to "green" their own economies today is by increasing investment in, and by, extension creating jobs in industries on the cutting edge of nonpolluting renewable forms of energy, such as solar and wind power. President Obama has repeatedly invoked his vision of a green economy as a tool for helping the U.S. lift itself out of the recession and positioning itself as an economic powerhouse in a carbon-constrained future. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009, the $787.2 billion stimulus package that Congress signed into law in 2009, was chock full of provisions to boost renewable energy, energy efficiency and environmental restoration initiatives. Examples include $4.5 billion to convert government buildings into highperformance green buildings, $8.4 billion for investments in public transportation, and tens of billions of dollars more for research into new technologies to amplify existing efforts. ARRA also earmarked $11 billion for the implementation of the "smart grid," a new approach to power distribution that will bring more clean energy sources into the mix and promote energy efficiency. Infusing such huge amounts of cash into sustainability-oriented projects is one way the Obama administration hopes to "green" the U.S. economy while simultaneously pulling the country out of

recession. "To truly transform our economy, protect our security, and save our planet from the ravages of climate change, we need to ultimately make clean, renewable energy the profitable kind of energy," Obama told Congress a few months ago. Of course, Americans aren't the only ones bent on building a green economy. During the 1980s and 1990s, while the American government was largely asleep at the wheel on environmental issues, countries such as Denmark, Germany, Spain and Japan were already busy investing in wind and solar research and implementation. And while these nations' ongoing efforts are nothing to sneeze at, economists point out that what is most needed is action on the part of the world's fastest growing economies, China and India. A recent report by the consulting firm McKinsey & Company found that China, which surpassed the U.S. as the world's largest generator of greenhouse gases three years ago, has great potential for building a green economy over the coming decades. According to McKinsey, by 2030 China could reduce its oil and coal imports by up to 40 percent and its greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent by investing upwards of 1.5 trillion yuan ($220 billion in U.S. dollars) per year in both existing and new green technologies. China has begun to see the light with regard to reducing emissions, increasing energy efficiency and embracing renewable alternative energy, but it has yet to make significant financial commitments, which will be key to both warding off catastrophic climate change and building a truly global green economy.

REGARDING BIAS, BIGOTRY, PREJUDICE AND RACISM By Hilbert Morales

T

he reality is that bias, bigotry, prejudice and racism exist in our society and always will because each of us, as individuals, have the right to dislike, disapprove, decide not to have a relationship with, and be negative about another. The societal challenges begin when these issues are projected beyond the circle of associates into the workplace or into public policy. If each of us is really honest with our conscious self and uncouscious self, we each will admit that bias, bigotry, prejudice and racism exist within our being. These come into conflict eventually with the “Golden Rule” which states ‘do unto others as you woud have them do unto you.” Our personal projections and expectations are a product of our practices about what is right or wrong. Recently, what happened to an African American woman who had an outstanding professional record brings all of this, and more, into focus. That woman is Ms. Shirley Sherrod who resigned from her posiion in the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) based on a video which grossly misrepresented statements made to an audience as the spokesperson of USDA Rural Development Program. A very conservatve video blogger had produced a video clip about Ms. Sherrod that Herman Goebel, the Nazi propaganda chief, would have been very proud of. Andrew Breithart was the blogger who first posted a misleading and highly edited video which was in turn picked up by Fox News Channel hosts Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity, and the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People). This version of the news ended up in the USDA’s office and the White House, where the buck stops with our first African American President, Barrack Hussein Obama. USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack ordered Ms. Sherrod dismissal without verification of the facts and truth. Shame on all of you! Because your actions revealed your bias, bigotry, prejudice and racism. It turns out that after Ms. Sherrod resigned, a full examination occurred of the video of her consciousness raising presentation to the NAACP in Douglas, Georgia. Sherrod revealed that her father had been murdered by white men who were never indicted. In response Shirley decided to stay in the South as a social change agent. She married Rev. Charles Sherrod, a civil rights leader and cofounder of the Student NonViolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC).

Later in her career, as Director of a Farmer’s Co-Op organized to assist Black farmers, she received a request for assistance from a White farmer named Roger Spooner. That request caused Shirley Sherrod to confront her own feelings about what had happened to her father. The White Spooners stepped up to her defense. Ms. Sherrod had not acted in a racist manner. On the contrary, Ms. Sherrod had done her job as a professional. The Spooners attested to the fact that Sherrod had gone out of her way to help them save their farm. If she had not helped them, they would have lost everything according to Eloise Spooner, Age 82. When the full facts of this matter became available, President Obama apologized, USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack and the NAACP apologized, etc. Shirley Sherrod was even offered her job back. This story has several learning points which need to be stated clearly. First, The White House needs a staff member, who is professionally trained and is allowed to practice ‘old fashioned journalism reporting’ where the facts and truth of any matter are verified before any official action is taken. Second, many in our nation felt that the election of the first “Black President” was an indication of improved race relations in this nation. This is not true because, as a result of the current economy, many, especially those with limited resources and skills, are very anxious about their personal economic survival. This is especially true of small ethnic business owners who are systematically denied access to capital and credit needed by their businesses. The third point is that personally held bias, bigotry, prejudice and racism are elements within all of us. The challenge is to live up to the high standards of our religious beliefs, the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution as the law of the land. Each of us has inalienable rights, privileges and responsibilities. Each of us must not project the negativity of our own personal bias, bigotry, prejudice and racism upon our neighbor, especially in areas of competitive business and job relationships. Each of us is a unique individual whose humanity is established and supported by living in accordance with the Golden Rule: Do unto others what you would have them do unto you’. The challenge to live together in peace and tranquility is always before us. May God bless America.

¿Le arde el estomago? S

Dra. Ileana Ponce-Gonzalez i siente que el estómago se le está quemando, puede ser a causa de acidez estomacal, lo cual nos ocurre a todos en algunas ocasiones, por ejemplo: al comer comida frita o picante. Sin embargo, este problema puede convertirse en uno más serio, el cual se conoce como "reflujo gastroesofágico o simplemente "reflujo" (también llamado "GERD" en inglés). El reflujo ocurre cuando las fibras musculares que se encuentran en el estómago y que impiden que la comida se devuelva al esófago, no cierran bien. El reflujo puede causar síntomas como ardor estomacal, paladar amargo o incluso dañar el esófago. El reflujo puede controlarse con medicamentos o con cirugía. Cualquiera de las dos opciones le ayudará a disminuir el nivel de ácido estomacal. Existen dos tipos principales de medicamentos para tratar el reflujo. Es importante que tenga en cuenta que los medicamentos pueden causar efectos secundarios. Por ejemplo, los medicamentos Nexium(r) y Prevacid(r), conocidos como "inhibidores de bombeo de protones o PPIs", funcionan mejor que los medicamentos llamados "antagonistas receptores H2RAs", como Pepcid(r), que tienen una mayor probabilidad de causar dolores de cabeza o diarrea. Converse con su médico para que le recete el medicamento más adecuado para usted. La otra alternativa a los medicamentos es la cirugía. Si llega a optar por tener una cirugía, la parte superior del estómago se plegará alrededor de la parte inferior del esófago. Esto ayuda a que el ácido estomacal no refluja al esófago. Sin embargo, al igual que los medicamentos, la cirugía también puede causar efectos secundarios, tales como hinchazón y dificultad para tragar. Igualmente, algunas de las personas que optan por la cirugía deberán continuar tomando medicamentos después del procedimiento. Si desea más información sobre el reflujo y sobre los riesgos y beneficios de los medicamentos, llame a la Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), al 1-800-358-9295 y solicite una copia del folleto gratuito, La enfermedad de reflujo gastroesofágico.

Education Ray Ruiz, Honorary Chairman of Corporate and Strategic Partnerships spoke about the importance of “familia,” during the community reception regarding the Silicon Valley Hispanic Youth Symposium at the National Hispanic University.

Local high school students exposed to potential role models By Cinthia Rodriguez El Observador

T

he first Silicon Valley Hispanic Youth Symposium kicked off this Wednesday. Out of a possible 300 high school students, only 100 were accepted to attend the program, all of which are from the East San Jose region. For those 100 students, the four-day retreat can make a difference of a lifetime. “They are going to come in as one student and they are going to leave as a completely transformed student. This isn't just a little motivational conference, they leave absolutely clear of what's possible with their lives,” said Ernesto Gritzewsky, empowering entertainer of the symposiums. During the college empowerment program, students will connect with Hispanic professionals, participate in college and career workshops, attend a college admission fair, and compete for $10,000 in scholarships. “What we try to do for the youth symposium is really give them hope,” said Joseph

Petrone, president and CEO of the Hispanic College Fund. “Hope to aspire to something that's bigger, better and maybe expose them to something they've never been exposed to.” The program visited Fresno and made an impact on several students. One in particular stood out. The student confessed she was an undocumented student, but the symposium helped her realize she wanted to fight for her dream. This time, it’s on the campus of Santa Clara University where students will be encouraged to become leaders. They will get to connect with community leaders, as they share their stories about overcoming obstacles and will brainstorm alternative solutions to issues affecting Latino communities. “What we have to be passionate about each and every day is getting our people to be responsible, to step up to the plate by getting their education, but they need to know that there's a safety net behind them and ultimately we're about familia,” said Ray Ruiz, President, Community Development Resources, Inc. “So it’s truly a

community effort that is happening and will continue to happen.” Today, only 13 percent of Latinos in the United States hold a post-secondary degree. With Hispanics soon to become the largest minority in America, the Hispanic College Fund (HCF) feels the youth should be prepared for professional success. The HCF, a non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C, with a mission to develop the next generation of Hispanic professional, developed the program by working with National Hispanic University and several community leaders, like Mayor Reed’s office. “I firmly believe that the youth participants will learn all that they can so they can make a difference,” said Judy Chirco, vice mayor of San Jose. The program will close with a ceremony, where scholarships will be awarded and students will have the opportunity to share their insights about the program. The program is set to end on Saturday, July 31. For more information about the symposium, visit: http://www.hispanicyouth.org

¡No se desvíen del camino hacia la universidad este verano! Por María de los Ángeles Corral, El College Board, mcorral@collegeboard.org

E

ntre la playa y las vacaciones es importante que los jóvenes le dediquen tiempo a sus planes universitarios. Renée Gernand, directora de servicios de planificación universitaria del College Board, aconseja: "Si trabajan juntos, en familia, para cuando el estudiante llegue al grado 12, estará bien encaminado para graduarse e ir a la universidad". A continuación le ofrecemos algunas sugerencias para que ambos mantengan las miras en la universidad este verano. Treinta minutos de lectura al día puede lograr maravillas en el desarrollo de las destrezas de comprensión y comunicación - ambas necesarias para el éxito universitario. Anime a su hijo a leer libros, periódicos o revistas. ¿Necesita sugerencias? Vea 101 Grandes Libros en collegeboard.com/padres, bajo Planificar para la Universidad. Para mejorar las destrezas de escritura, los estudiantes pueden escribir un diario o un blog en línea, o adelantarse en los ensayos para las solicitudes universitarias. Según Manny Martínez, maestro de escuela media en San José, California, aunque sus hijos no hayan necesitado cursos de verano, recomienda que los padres le pregunten a sus hijos qué destrezas les gustaría mejorar y les consigan ayuda. Las organizaciones comunitarias y las universidades de su zona ofrecen programas de verano que refuerzan las destrezas académicas a veces con actividades divertidas. Investigue programas gratuitos o de bajo costo a través de agencias como YMCA y Boy & Girls Clubs. Muchos adolescentes buscan con entusiasmo los trabajos de verano para costear su recreo, pero eso no debería ser el único motivo. Las pasantías y los trabajos voluntarios ayudan a los jóvenes a entusiasmarse por carreras y especializaciones universitarias. Las pasantías también ayudan a desarrollar la confianza en sí mismo, la responsabilidad y el trabajo en equipo. El trabajo voluntario les demuestra a los adolescentes que pueden marcar una diferencia positiva en la sociedad.

Anime a su hijo a ir en pos de sus intereses. Por ejemplo, si le gustan los animales, puede trabajar en un refugio para animales o en el zoológico. Busque agencias cerca de su casa y en la página web de su ciudad. Además, las pasantías y los trabajos voluntarios dan una muy buena impresión en la solicitud universitaria. Con ello, los estudiantes demuestran que tienen la ambición y los valores para mejorar su comunidad universitaria. No se tiene que elegir una carrera para saber qué universidades podrían ser las indicadas. Identifiquen lo que quiere de una universidad y hagan una lista. El College Board recomienda que los estudiantes soliciten a entre cinco y ocho universidades. Averigüe cuándo son las sesiones de orientación y comience a visitar las universidades. La mayor parte de la ayuda financiera proviene del gobierno o de las universidades, pero las becas pueden ser muy útiles. Consulten miles de ellas en collegeboard.com/padres, bajo Pagar la Universidad. Sin duda, debe familiarizarse con el examen de ingreso universitario a través de preguntas y pruebas de práctica. En sat.collegeboard.com es fácil hacerlo gracias a los recursos gratuitos y de bajo costo. Las fechas de los exámenes de otoño ya están disponibles en la página web, de manera que los estudiantes se pueden inscribir con anticipación. Recursos para los estudiantes y sus padres My College List ayuda a los estudiantes a hacer una lista de universidades, consultar sus páginas web y a organizar las solicitudes de ingreso gratuitamente. También les recuerda los datos importantes, tales como las pruebas que deben tomar y los formularios que deben presentar. Visite collegeboard.com/padres, bajo Buscar la Universidad. Ayude a su hijo a obtener una carrera universitaria es una guía de bajo costo, que ayuda a los padres a motivar a sus hijos para lograr que la universidad sea una realidad. Dicha guía incluye un práctico calendario y una lista de verificación que sirve para mantener la familia al día. Para hacer su pedido, sírvase llamar al 866-630-9305.

Se amplía fecha límite para Compradores de Vivienda

W

ASHINGTON — Los contribuyentes elegibles que efectuaron un contrato para comprar una

vivienda, calificando para el crédito para primeros compradores de vivienda, antes del final de abril ahora tienen hasta el 30 de septiem-

bre del 2010 para cerrar el trato, según el Servicio de Impuestos Internos (IRS). El Acta de Asistencia para la Compra y Mejora de Viviendas del 2010, ejecutada esta semana, amplió la fecha límite de cierre del 30 de junio al 30 de septiembre para cualquier comprador de vivienda elegible que estableciera un contrato con obligación de compra el 30 de abril o antes. La nueva ley trata la inquietud de que muchos compradores de vivienda pudieran no haber podido cumplir con la fecha límite de cierre original del 30 de junio.

traditional dances. I feel that there should be similar events like this throughout the Bay Area.” Rocio Villegas also felt that these types of events should be held throughout the Bay Area and that they should be promoted better. “I only learned about this event because I attended the one in Santa Cruz,” Villegas said. “Events like these are important to the community and our culture.”

Knowing one’s roots By Osvaldo Castillo El Observador

J

ennifer Santiago can trace her family’s roots to Oaxaca, Mexico and she is very proud of this. So much so that she regularly participates in festivals in which native dances from Oaxaca are performed. Santiago, along with several native Oaxacan dancers performed at this year’s Guelaguetza, held at National Hispanic University in San Jose on Sunday, July 25. She is a member of the Comunidad Tlacolulense de Los Angeles Dance Company. “Our performance for this event was a traditional Oaxacan dance in which a couple is chosen to host a party and the guests of the party help out by providing food, drinks and other things we would need for the party,” Santiago said. “The women carry baskets on their heads decorated with white flowers and the dance symbolizes the faith of the Catholic people.” Santiago felt that the audience enjoyed her dance company’s performance even though she noticed that it was not entirely perfect. “We made a few mistakes but it’s ok because nothing is perfect and that’s what we wanted the audience to get out of this dance,” Santiago said. Barbara Diaz was one of those in attendance this past Sunday. She came all the way from Vallejo to watch the native dances from Oaxaca. “I heard about the event from Celina Rodriguez’ radio show and felt that it was important for me to attend this event,” Diaz said. “I like that this is a family event and that it gives Latin people a chance to learn and experience their culture.” Diaz also said she met a painter at the event

Native dances were not the only attractions at the Guelaguetza. There were children’s activities, art and several types of food. John Chen of Mountain View particularly liked the quesadillas from Mezcal. “I like learning about different cultures and enjoy eating different types of food,” Chen said. “I would definitely recommend the quesadillas from Mezcal to my friends.”

O

n Tuesday, August 3, 2010, neighborhoods throughout San Jose are invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the "27th Annual National Night Out". National Night Out will involve over 10,000 communities from all 50 States, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities and military bases around the world. In all, over 34 million people are expected to participate in "Americas Night Out Against Crime". National Night Out is designed to: Heighten crime and drug awareness; Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime efforts; Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police/community partnerships; and Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. From 6 to 10 p.m. on August 3rd, residents in neighborhoods throughout San Jose and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend an evening outside with neighbors and police. Many neighborhoods throughout San Jose will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts, ice cream socials, barbeques and informal gatherings. National Night Out events don't have to be big or expensive. The important thing is to spend some time enjoying your neighborhood and getting to know your neighbors. Relax in the front yard, talk with neighbors and watch the kids play. You'll be supporting crime prevention efforts in San Jose while celebrating your neighborhood. Last year approximately 100 San Jose neighborhoods showed their support for National Night Out by enjoying an evening with their neighbors and local police officers. To include your neighborhood in this years event register on line at www.sjpd.org or contact the San Jose Police Department Crime Prevention Unit at (408) 277-4133.

Fiesta en el barrio Por Rosario Vital El Observador

J

osé Hernández Carrillo residente del Sur de San José no pierde la oportunidad de participar en las fiestas de barrio. "Es bonito salir y conocer a tus vecinos. Es importante estar unidos para combatir la delincuencia y tener una perfecta comunicación entre los vecinos",explicó. Por ejemplo en el vecindario de Willow Glen Se han reportado una serie de asaltos a domicilio y negocios. Esto está preocupando a todo el vecindario. La fiesta que se aproxima este próximo 3 de agosto es una buena oportunidad para conocer a los vecinos. "Es importante salir un rato por la tarde, conversar con nuestros vecinos. A veces salimos muy de prisa al trabajo y no tenemos oportunidad de socializar con nuestros amigos de cuadra", explica Felix Torres. Las autoridades de la ciudad en conjunto con la policía local invitan a todas las personas a unirse a miles de comunidades a nivel nacional para esta "27ma celebración del National Night Out o Una noche afuera ". La celebración del National Night Out involucrará a más de 10,000 comunidades de los 50 Estados, territorios de los EE.UU. En total, se espera que más de 34 millones de personas participen en la "Noche de las Américas contra el crimen". Este evento está diseñado para combatir la delincuencia y el consumo de drogas y el crimen local. De hecho fortalece los lazos de amistad entre la comunidad y la policía y fundamentalmente es un mensaje para todos los criminales que los vecindarios están organizados y luchan por su tranquilidad. Este próximo martes 3 de agosto entre 6pm a 10 pm se les pide salir al parque, cerrar la cuadra y organizar una fiesta para conocerse unos a otros. En años pasado muchos vecindarios prepararon deliciosos platillos y muchas actividades al aire libre. Fiestas informales se llevaron por todo San José. El año pasado unos 100 vecindarios de San José mostraron su apoyo al "National Night Out disfrutando de una tarde con sus vecinos y la policía local. Δ

Inmigrante valiente

Victor Cristóbal en el año 2007 enfrentó a los “minutemen” con mucha valentía y a pesar que no domina el idioma ingles expresó su frustración al grupo antiinmigrante y captó la atención de los periodistas anglosajones.

s probable que lo ha ya visto ust ed por t odos lados del Ár ea de la Bahía. En las mar chas por una reforma migratoria; en la lucha de viviendas justas , también peleando por los der echos laborales a los trabajador es de mercados; defendiendo a conductores indocumentados; batallando por la Ley de Arizona y también enfrentando a los "minutemen". Victor Cristóbal Hernández (25) llegó de Veracruz, México hace 8 años y en estos últimos años ha presenciado de todo. Vivió en carne propia su despido injusto y a pesar de que en reiteradas oportunidades fue humillado no exterminó su lucha por la justicia sino todo lo contrario, se hizo fuerte para enfrentar situaciones similares y ayudar a otros a salir adelante.

"Quiero ayudar a la gente, me gusta involucrarme en eventos y sacrifico sábados y domingos para informarme y luchar por lo que nos corresponde", indica el joven de Veracruz. Su participación y compromiso dentro de la comunidad ha sido notable. Cristóbal disfruta trabajando como voluntario pero como cualquier otro trabajador tiene que apuntarse a todo tipo de trabajo. Desde repartir volantes hasta vender flores son los trabajos que lo llenan de dignidad como todo inmigrante trabajador en busca una vida justa y humana. "Quiero que se haga justicia en esta sociedad. No vemos el cambio y tenemos sed de esto", comenta a EO Cristóbal quien está al tanto de todo lo que pasa en Estados Unidos. Cristóbal por problemas de salud no pudo terminar la escuela primaria sin embargo la vida le está dando la oportunidad de educarse a través de todos los movimientos sociales que se estan gestando en nuestra sociedad. Lo que no aprendió en la escuela lo está aprendiendo en la "universidad de la vida". Cristóbal actualmente trabaja como organizador comunitario en el sindicato de trabajadores de mercados, forma parte del Comité Guelaguetza y trabaja como voluntario de SIREN.

alo means bad in Spanish, bad can mean good in English, but music is a language of its own that only some master. And that’s what Latin rock band Malo has been doing for 40 years, making music for many to interpret. “We started the whole thing, everybody else copies,” said lead singer Arcelio Garcia, in an interview with El Observador. Garcia was referring to the birth of Latin rock. He said there was (Carlos) Santana and he was Latin rock, but Malo came out with a Latin rock orchestra and after them bands like Azteca and Miami Sound Machine followed. Garcia started out with the band the Malibus, a popular band in the Bay Area in the midsixties, where he played along side of Jorge Santana, brother of the already popular Carlos Santana. Despite the popularity of the Malibus, the band decided to change their name and that’s when things began happening. “We were at a club and we were looking for a new name,” said Garcia. “Malo means bad and back in the old days bad meant good and everybody kept on saying that band's malo and boom it stuck.” Their first self titled album was released in 1972 and Garcia wrote four of the six songs, including classics “Nena” and “Café.” That same year, “Suavecito” was released.

“Nena was written because of a little girl crying on the street,” Said Garcia. “I just wanted to make her laugh, you know.” The latest album “Malo en Vivo,” was an album where the band went in and just got it done. Garcia said that it was fun recording, while in the studio in Fresno during the interview. “We got a very large fan base because we got the originals, now we got the grandchildren and we got their grandchildren's grandchildren,” said Garcia. The fans have been quick to respond to the music the band provides. Recently, an 85 year old lady drove about 200 miles along with her kids to see Malo perform. Their music transcends generations primarily in the Bay Area and the LA area. “We've accomplished a lot but you never stop learning and I guess I'm still learning,” said Garcia. Garcia hopes to keep touring, he doesn’t want to stop. Performing is natural to him and he considers doing a show like an hour and a half of aerobics. He doesn’t stop dancing and relates to the movie Happy Feet. The Best of Malo II will be coming out next year, but on Saturday, July 31, you can experience Malo at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco.

“Sueño Norteño sueña cantar con Juanes

Por Rosario Vital - El Observador

E

n su octava producción titulada “Rey sin corazón”, la banda “Sueño Norteño” se estrena como compositora de sus propios temas. Muy lejos de los narcocorridos y otros ritmos que estremecen y ensordecen a los oyentes la banda se autodenomina única en su género conservador. “Rey sin Corazon es un disco especial para nosotros. Nos lanzamos con nuestras propias composiciones. Es bonito estamos escribiendo música y estamos incluyendo13 temas que le

hablan al amor, tambien damos consejo, y ponemos a reflexionar a la gente y claro siempre un mensaje positivo en nuestros temas “, dice Gerardo Luna Director de la agrupación. Con el ritmo del acordeón, saxofon, bateria y sus fuertes voces esta banda de Durango inicia una gira por todos los Estados Unidos. Alejados del vicio de otras bandas ellos se consideran un elemento totalmente diferente en una sociedad que ultimadamente ha enfrentado violencia, crimen y terror. “ No tememos a nadie, no cantamos al narcotráfico, no es nuestro estilo,el que nada debe nada teme. Mis respetos a todos los colegas que graban corridos”, expresa Luna quien es el Director y productor de esta banda. La banda está compuesta además por Fabián Luna, Roman Rodriguez, Jorge Sánchez, y Rodolfo Luna. La música se escucha por todo el norte de la republica Mexicana y se espera que llegue a esta parte norte de California. La banda por el momento no tiene un plan concreto pero si les gustaría hacer un trabajo a lado de Juanes. Ahora están de gira recorriendo todo California, Phoenix, Arizona, Colorado, Nuevo Mexico y Texas. Si desea escuchar su música la banda “Sueño Norteño” está en www.suenonorteno.com facebook y twitter. Δ
