Give a Penny or an Hour By Dave Cortese Supervisor, Santa Clara County

A

s you may have noticed, the weather has finally started to show signs of the fall season coming. Before you know it, the holidays will be upon us. Now I know what you are thinking, here comes another call for donations for the needy. Well, you are correct; but this year it is more important than in the past as the slowing economy has reduced the amount of donations that nonprofits

normally receive. Now I know that many are struggling among us, including some of you; every day I see the reports of more first time unemployment applicants and the rise in home foreclosures. So while I would ask that you dig through the couch or look under the seat in your car for the loose change that you could donate to a charity, I urge you to also look at ways you can help that will not dip into your savings account. The easiest way is to look in your closet for clothes or blankets that are still in good condition but that you just don't use anymore. Perhaps they have gone out of style, your kids have grown out of them, or you just don't need them; either way, there are many people that would be very appreciative to have an extra blanket or coat, or even a regular t-shirt or jeans. Another way that you can help is to volunteer your time. There are soup kitchens of course. But other places that could use help are food banks like Second Harvest Food Bank that need help distributing food bags and containers, and sorting the food that they receive. Or you could volunteer at the county's Senior Nutrition Program that provides nutritionally balanced meals for seniors that are delivered to their homes or provided at community centers.

There are many ways that we can step up to help out our neighbors during these tough times. These are just a few of the many ways that I can think of, but this column is not long enough to list all of them. So what I am going to offer is to host a list of resources on my website at http://www.supervisorcortese.org, that you can go to in order to locate places that you can go for help or to help out. If you would like to add an opportunity or need to our website - please email Steven Blomquist at steven.blomquist@bos.sccgov.org. I am constantly amazed at the many resources that are available for the residents of Santa Clara County that people do not know about. So my goal for this list of resources is to enlist "people-power" to get the word out. Just keep in mind that every little bit helps. Whether it is your spare change or the thirty minutes that you spent giving a nutritious meal to a local senior, you will have made a difference in the life of someone else. And if we all band together, these small acts will combine to make a difference in our community and our nation. As always, I am here to help you or to listen to your suggestions. Please give me a call at (408) 299-5030 or email me at dave.cortese@bos.sccgov.org. Steve Blomquist contributed to this article.

CHARITABLE GIVING: MORE IS NEEDED

R

ecently, S acred Hear t Community Services (SHCS) asked its neighborhood to tell the needy to sign up for a Thanksgiving Day food basket. What happened demonstrates the urgent need for food by those who are underemployed and/or unemployed. The fact that an elderly man became the head of the line on the previous evening in order to ensure that his daughter could be at the head of the sign-up line w as reported on the evening TV news the ne xt day. Also r eported was the observation that by the time actual signing up began, the line w as about four blocks long. As a child during the 1930s I recall that food baskets were distributed just before Christmas not Thanksgiving holidays. I recall the relief on my mother’s face when the food baskets allocated to the Morales family arrived. As a child , my parents effectively protected my eight siblings and I from the reality that resources, especially food and money were in short supply. Unemployment was very high and the economy was down just like today. It was later, as an educated adult, that I realized how bad those good old days were. On Monday, November 9, 2009 The Wall Street Journal devoted an eight-page feature about philanthropy entitled WHAT'S WRONG WITH CHARITABLE GIVING AND HOW TO FIX IT. It asks the question "What can be done to help donors make a difference for the nonpr ofits (such as SHCS) designed to help needy people? There were nine changes pr oposed to make philanthropic giving "do what we all claim we want it to do. This is especially important today when automation, cybernetics and information technology are implemented in a manner that eliminates jobs while increasing productivity of goods and services. The outcome is unemployment at higher levels. And the usual paradigm

of 'get a job to earn necessary income for your family' becomes very difficult to accomplish, especially by those with limited skills and education. The first proposal was to 'Increase the distribution percentage. Presently foundations are mandated to distribute 5% of their assets. It is suggested that Congress increase this to 7% or 8%. That simple change would redirect $40 billion per year towards those nonprofit organizations, which serve the needs of the needy. The second proposal was "Increase General Operations Support". It is recommended that at least 50% of grants be 'unrestricted' to permit the local non-profit organization to support and train essential staff and t o provide more timely response to the plight of the needy. The third recommendation is to increase multi-year funding. The "annual basis funding' needs to be extended to several years to establish stability over the long t erm. The correct practice is to award grants annually with a twoyear extension being possible . These terms need to be extended to a five-year, 10 year or even 20-year period. The fourth proposal: Adopt "rolling grant making" which enables foundations to underwrite proposals continuously by delegating 'award authority' to committees of trustees or entrusted staff, both of whom report their actions to the entire Board. Today's practice of making awards once or twice a year imposes many hardships on nonprofits. The fifth proposal is very welcome: ALLOCATE MORE FUNDS T O THE TRUL Y NEEDY. Presently the bulk of funding is channeled t o education, health and the arts. Only a small slice goes towards funding the truly needy (food and shelter). Today, about 5% of all founda tion money goes to community-based nonprofits,

which serve the poor, people of color, women and children at risk, gays & lesbians, the disabled and troubled youth. The sixth proposal is "To reach out to local groups and under-served regions." Many do not realize that after Hurricane Katrina the rebuilding of the Mississippi D elta region was hampered by the lack of local c ommunity based organizations especially amongst the very poor and Black communities. The seventh proposal is to simplify application and reporting procedures. Excessively detailed and time -consuming applica tions need replacement with simpler forms. In fact, a ' common applica tion form' needs t o be adopted and used by all. The eighth recommendation is t o "Improve public accountability". Recently the scandals cause b y inappr opriate e xpenditures, excessive compensation, self-dealing, corruption, and conflicts of interest have been evident locally. The capacity and ability to audit and monitor must be maintained. The ninth recommendation is to "Fund the Watchdogs". We must establish and suppor t more watchdog groups to patrol the vast number of public and private sector organizations.

t's reported that U.S. Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan shouted, "Allahu akbar" ("God is Great") as he unleashed an automatic weapon upon his fellow soldiers at Ft. Hood, killing 13 and wounding many more. It is yet another murder committed by a reportedly lone gunman, ala Lee Harvey Oswald (killer of JFK), Sirhan Sirhan (killer of RFK), James Earl Ray (killer of MLK). The lonely, anti-social, lone gunman is a common profile of assassins. Did Hasan suddenly "snap" under the pressure of counseling other soldiers about to leave or returning from war? Or is there more to this killer than his singular pathology? Investigations of Hasan's contacts with a radical Islamic cleric continue, as well as reports that he prayed constantly and obsessed over his internal contradictions as a Muslim in an army fighting in two Islamic nations. He was severely conflicted by his ethical dilemma and rather than seek the very therapy he provided to others, he tragically denied it to himself. Seeking to comprehend why someone kills people he does not know or who did him no specific harm, police, prosecutors, therapists and the public are quick to analyze the killer as mentally ill, de-ranged, depressed, unhappy, or suffering from post, pre or secondary traumatic stress. Any combination of these is likely to prove true. But it is equally difficult to make sense of group violence encouraged, promoted, planned and perpetrated by religious sects, cells, and cults. Many theorize that it is only breakaway religious fanatical cults who commit such acts, rather that the main branches of religious institutions, yet history disproves this notion. In the case of Hasan, shouting as he fired his weapon -- "God is Great" -is evidence that he acted in a disturbed illusion that he was acting out his faith by killing infidels, sinners, and evildoers on behalf of God. Tragically--some persons act out their individual or religious fantasies, illusions, or scripts to the demise those in their line of fire. It is critical to examine how religious theologies and national ideologies are taught to all, expecting absolute belief. Those who do so are judged religiously: to be good Christians, Jews, Muslims, or whatever the "faith," or secularly: to be good Americans, Israelis, Britons, Germans, etc. From infancy, children are taught to recite prayers, tested on doctrines, pledges of allegiance, commitments to some faith, rewarded with praise, decorations, promotions, blessed by patriarchs, while those who question the "sacred teachings" have at times been abused, incarcerated, exiled, or excommunicated, even executed, and condemned to eternal damnation! Many are indoctrinated from infancy by loving and beloved parents, teachers, leaders, priests, imams, rabbis and ministers as well as political leaders to believe without question-to believe that: "god is great, all knowing, just, merciful, vengeful, and everything happens for a reason." In the secular realm our indoctrination is that our nation, political party, movement, culture or ideology is the only true doctrine. Therefore, with the guidance of god, party, nation, general, monarch or president, one must surrender rationality to a god or a commander-in-chief, and may be ordered to kill the enemies of the faith, party, or nation. "I was only following orders" or "god's will be done," are all too common banal excuses when our actions cause great harm. When we surrender our unique human ability to reason by choosing to blindly believe rather than rationally THINK, we risk becoming inhumanely unreasonable and in too many cases, kill for god, country, party. God may be great, bla bla bla.... However, our human ability to reason certainly is great, if we but use it.

County Intends On Purchasing Downtown Hospital By Osvaldo Castillo El Observador

D

owntown San Jose has been without a downtown medical facility for over five years now. Some of its residents have had to travel long distances (5-6 miles) in order to receive medical care. That is all about to change. In November of 2008, Santa Clara County's voters passed Measure A, which included an allocation of $50 million dedicated to fund a medical facility in the downtown San Jose area. Those funds will be applied to the purchase price of the land, buildings and related parking facilities, and will partially reimburse the Retiree Health Fund, which will advance the purchase price of the site and property. The old hospital will be demolished and the current medical office building will be converted to a clinic, operated by a community partner. "When downtown San Jose lost its hospital, we promised that we would work hard to bring it back," said Liz Kniss President of Santa Clara County Supervisor. "We intend to purchase this property and to fulfill that promise." The property was also chosen because of the opportunity for economic development in the area. "When combined with the economic devel-

opment potential, this is an opportunity Santa Clara County cannot pass up," said Supervisor Ken Yeager. "Like many of our neighboring governments, county services have been hurt by the continuous erosion of revenue. We have to be creative and develop income streams that will help pay for county services over the long term." Although the County has endured a series of difficult challenges over the past eight years, the Board of Supervisors recognizes the need to plan for the future. The current economic recession has forced many entities to focus on short-term decisions; however, the County has a track record of taking the long-term view and making decisions to move in the direction of financial independence. After looking at 29 sites in the area, it became clear to the County that the former San Jose Medical Center site provided the best opportunity to get the clinic up and running as soon as possible. It is an advantageous location because of onsite parking and accessibility to public transportation. The sale price of $28.3 million, including demolition and site clearance, will come from funds that cannot be used for operations. "We will finance the property acquisition in a way that gives us the greatest flexibility in the future," said Dr. Jeff Smith, M.D., County Executive.

It is unclear when the new medical facility will open, but with the funds provided from Measure A, the timeframe should not be a long one. A start has been authorized.

"This is just the first step in making this a reality," Smith said. "We should have all the proper arrangements worked out by December 15 of 2009."

otel workers at the Palace Hotel walked off the job on November 10, announcing the second three-day strike at a San Francisco hotel in as many weeks. Approximately 350 workers participated in the strike, which began at 4:00 a.m. Tuesday, and ended at the beginning of the first shift on Friday morning. "It's clear management still thinks they can use this year's economy as an excuse to permanently slash our health care," said Elena Duran, an 18-year server at the Palace Hotel. "But we're not going to let these hugely profitable companies get away with that." The Palace is managed by Starwood Hotels & Resorts [NYSE:HOT], the same company that manages the Westin St. Francis, W, and St. Regis hotels. Starwood earned $180 million in profits during the first nine months of this year, and its stock price has risen 85% since January 1. Cerberus Capital Management, one of Wall Street's biggest investment firms, controls the Palace Hotel's owner. In addition to hotels, Cerberus owns banks, retailers, and gun manufacturers. "There has never been a question of whether they can afford what's on the table," said Mike Casey, President of Local 2. "The question is whether these companies will make a business decision that's in the best interests of workers, the City, and the hotels themselves." The three-day strike at the Palace Hotel follows a similar strike at the Grand Hyatt on Union Square. Workers at the Grand Hyatt are back on the job, but Local 2 continues to call on customers to boycott the hotel. Workers at 29 other upscale San Francisco hotels have authorized work stoppages if necessary, in support of their campaign to win a new contract. Despite amassing record profits over the preceding five years, hotel corporations in San Francisco and elsewhere have been using the economic downturn as an excuse to squeeze workers for longterm concessions. During the past two months, Local 2 has indicated openness to reaching an exceptionally low-cost contract settlement, totaling as little as 1.5% increase in labor costs. Nonetheless, the industry has persisted in trying to win permanent takeaways in the areas of affordable health coverage and retiree coverage.

Community Meeting on Gang Violence By Cinthia Rodriguez El Observador

T

he Mayor's Gang Prevention Taskforce held a community meeting at the Mathson Middle School cafeteria in an attempt to relieve any anxiety from an incident on the evening of Halloween. The meeting was held to raise awareness and to inform the community about the availability of resources. "In San Jose, we don't give up on any neighborhood," said Mayor Chuck Reed. The residents of East Side San Jose seemed frustrated about the gang activity in their neighborhoods. This meeting was a much-needed attempt to reassure parents that their children will be safe regardless of the area they live in. More than 250 members of the community showed up. The meeting began with a statement from Foothill Division Captain Ernesto Alcantar. The results of the incident during Halloween were briefly spoken about. Four suspects have been charged and there were two victims. Alcantar clarified any confusion about the types of shoes associated with the incident. There was also a reminder made about dialing 911 in any emergency and for a nonemergency 311 is to be dialed. As a response to the gang-related violence there is a higher presence of police and a special operating team is also at work. The California Youth Outreach, Crime Prevention, City Year, and the Alum Rock Community Center were also present during the meeting. Parents were

encouraged to take home DVDs and brochures that further explained recognizing early signs of gang involvement. The meeting gave parents a chance to talk about their concerns with other parents. The parents were split into groups that were then asked to answer three questions. The main concern was safety and how to establish a safe environment. There was a feeling of not enough communication between the police department and parents. Security is a real issue that needs to be fully addressed. There's a lack of communication between organizations and the community they're suppose to be helping. Parents seemed clueless about some of the programs available and they want to know what's going on, but sometimes there's a certain fear that prevents that. Parents want a united community and support from the city. Numbers of several different hotlines were given and the parents appreciated the efforts. They presented their thoughts of what they learned. They each stressed parenting skills that will keep the children safe and most importantly the neighborhoods. "Lets not make this a short lived event," said Jose Manzo, Superintendent of Alum Rock Union School District. The city is providing the resources; families should be aware of the different services and continue to work together. The notes of the meeting will be available online before Monday. Visit Nora Campos's district website or the Alum Rock School District website.

¿Ya se vacunó?... ¿Qué espera?

Si está enfermo no pierda el tiempo, tiene que sanarse primero ¿Quiénes se vacunan primero? Por Rosario Vital El Observador

N

o espere más, haga su cola armese de paciencia que 61,000 mil nuevas vacunas contra la gripe H1N1 ya se están distribuyendo en todo el Condado de Santa Clara. Entre el 14 y 15 de noviembre se llevará a cabo la segunda vacunación masiva en clínicas locales y en los terrenos del Condado de Santa Clara. Usted será atendido por las enfermeras y profesionales de salud. Las autoridades aseguran el orden de llegada gracias a la patrulla de efectivos de la Policía de San José así como alguaciles del Condado de Santa Clara. Se recomienda a las personas a que se abriguen, a que lleven sillas, agua y alimentos y para los pequeños lleve cuentos y juguetes para que no se aburran y se cansen porque la espera es larga. "Esperé cuatro horas y vale la pena", dijo la joven madre Irene Morán.

En diferentes idiomas

Algo que ha previsto el Departamento de Salud en el

Condado de Santa Clara es la atención en diferentes idiomas. Español y vietnamita fueron los idiomas utilizados en esta clínica masiva que por primera vez pone a prueba a las autoridades de salud. Aunque no se ha determinado el número de casos de gripe H1N1 en el Condado de Santa Clara por grupo étnico la maxima autoridad Dr. Martin Fenstersheib afirmó que como el 30% de los pacientes con este mal son latinos. Reporte Cerca de nueve mil personas fueron vacunadas el sábado 7 de noviembre. Un total de 4,175 vacunas se aplicaron a las mujeres embarazadas, niños, adultos jóvenes, y otros en riesgo de la enfermedad y complicaciones graves de la gripe H1N1. Aunque las autoridades de salud programaron la vacunación hasta las 3:30 de la tarde, no fue sino hasta las 5:00 pm que los profesionales de la salud atendieron a los últimos pacientes en este lugar. Clínicas de sitios adicionales están previstas para el sábado, 14 de noviembre. Para estos lugares y horarios, por favor consulte el sitio web de Salud Pública de www.sccphd.org.

Debido a las limitadas vacunas se está dando prioridad a las siguientes personas" * Mujeres embarazadas * Niños y jóvenes entre las edades de 6 meses y 24 años * Personas que cuidan o viven con bebés menores de seis meses * Adultos entre las edades de 25 y 64 años que tienen afecciones médicas que los ponen en riesgo de enfermarse gravemente y morir debido al virus de la gripe H1N1 * Personal de servicios médicos de emergencia y de salud

¿A dónde ir? Sábado 14 de nov. Alviso Health Center 9am - 4pm 1621 Gold Street Alviso, CA 95002 Gardner Health Center 9am - 4pm 195 E. Virginia Street San Jose, CA 95112 Valley Health Center Gilroy 9:30 - 3:30 pm 7475 Camino Arroyo Gilroy, CA 95020

Daniel Morán (2) fue uno de los miles de pequeños que chillaron al recibir la vacuna.

¿Qué hacer si tiene la gripe? 1. Quédese en su casa sin ir al trabajo o a la escuela y observe la enfermedad. Los síntomas de la gripe H1N1 pueden aparecer rápidamente y usualmente incluyen fiebre (más de 100ºF), tos, dolor de garganta, secreción nasal o nariz tapada, dolor de cuerpo, dolor de cabeza, escalofríos y cansancio extremo. Muchas personas infectadas con el virus H1N1 también han presentado diarrea y vómitos. 2. Descanse y asegúrese de tomar mucha agua y otros líquidos claros. Puede tratar la fiebre y los dolores con medicinas que no necesitan receta médica. Siga las instrucciones del fabricante. Quédese en casa hasta que ya no tenga fiebre por lo menos durante 24 horas (sin que haya tomado cualquier medicamento que baje la fiebre). La mayoría de personas sanas que se enferman con la gripe H1N1 se recuperarán sin necesidad de tratamiento médico. 3. Si usted está en uno de los siguientes grupos debe comunicarse

con su proveedor médico y hablar sobre recibir medicamentos antivirales: * Mujeres embarazadas y las madres con niños menores de 2 meses de edad * Niños menores de 2 años de edad * Personas con afecciones médicas crónicas o sistemas inmunológicos debilitados * Personas menores de 19 años de edad y que están en terapia de aspirina a largo plazo. * Personas mayores de 65 años de edad Los medicamentos antivirales (pastillas, líquidos o inhaladores) disminuyen la capacidad de reproducción de los virus de la gripe. De acuerdo con los Centros para el Control y Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC, por sus siglas en inglés), los medicamentos antivirales deben iniciarse en el transcurso de dos días después de enfermarse. Cuando se utilizan de esta manera, estos medicamentos pueden

reducir la gravedad de los síntomas y prevenir las complicaciones serias de la gripe. 4. Si usted es una persona sana y se enferma con la gripe, llame inmediatamente a su médico si: * Empeoran sus síntomas * Tiene dificultad para respirar * Se deshidrata debido a vómitos o diarrea 5. Busque atención médica inmediata si tiene lo siguiente (por ejemplo, la sala de emergencia): * Problemas para respirar * Convulsiones * Dolor en el pecho * No deja de vomitar * Confusión * Mejoran los síntomas y luego regresan con fiebre y la tos empeora 6. Lávese las manos con frecuencia y use desinfectantes de manos. Para obtener más información sobre la gripe H1N1 y las clínicas de vacunación, visite www.sccphd.org

El nacimiento de Mi Pueblo localizado en la 1731 E. Bayshore Road del Este de Palo Alto (EPA) le ha dado muchos dolores de cabeza y aunque Chávez sabe que otro tanto no lo quiere en ese lugar, ha decidido seguir adelante y abrir este mercado al público el 14 de noviembre. "Por 30 años no existió un supermercado formal en EPA, Mi Pueblo es el primer mercado que tiene una extensión de 28 mil pies cuadr ados y cuenta con todos los departamentos que cuentan las otras tiendas. Cuenta con abarrotes, panadería, importaciones de productos de nuestros países, frutas y verduras, deli, carniceria y tortilleria", explica Chávez.

Los trabajadores viven en el Este de Palo Alto y fueron elegidos entre tres mil aplicaciones. "Mis trabajadores estarán trabajando a tiempo completo. Todos son empleados de mi pueblo y la gr an mayoría a tiempo completo tiene 32 horas o más de trabajo. Todos tienen beneficios,oportunidad de enrolarse en los beneficios que ofrecemos, tales como vacaciones, atención médica, visión, dental lo mismo que tengo yo", indica el propietario. Inversión millonaria Chávez dijo a EO que en esta tienda ha in vertido de 4 a 5 millones de dólar es. Que según los estudios realizados, la tienda está proyectada a generar 400 mil dólares por semana. El secreto de sus éxitos" "Creo que el éxito está en la eficacia, eficiencia, la fórmula de Mi Pueblo es servir a cada persona.También ofrecer y buscar los mejores precios posibles y creo que la clientela ve la diferencia que hacemos, esa propuesta de valores hace que esté creciendo cada día más", concluye Juvenal Chávez. El propietario quien comentó no estar preocupado por la zona, se siente como en casa porque según él la comunidad latina es grande, sólida y luchadora. En cuanto al uso de bolsas plásticas explicó que las tiendas se están preparando para el año 2011.

Para Diego no hay imposibles Por Rosario Vital - El Observador

D

iego González(26) es un joven amante de la vida, la naturaleza, el deporte y la aventura. Lleva 10 años recorriendo el mundo. Si bien lo hace trepando grandes montañas, lo hace nadando grandes distancias en los mares o montando bicicleta y recorriendo el mundo de una manera bastante peculiar. En su más reciente travesía Diego emprendió un viaje en bicicleta de bambú desde la gélida ciudad de Anchorage, Alaska. El joven vino por la Costa del Pacífico de Canadá y los Estados Unidos. Luego pasará a México para llegar a Baja California, y se quedará en Los Cabos, desde allí nadará 180 millas a Mazatlán y de allí pasará a Cancún. Acompañado de Rachel Scdoris, una atleta vidente de Oregón además de Kyle Lashley y Travis Fuller, González decidió emprender esta aventura que tiene por finalidad advertir de los cambios climáticos y también para demostrar a cualquier ser humano que nada es imposible en esta vida. "Estamos haciendo esto para motivar a la gente a comprometerse con sus objetivos y lograr sus ambiciones, sin importar la condición física, mental o impedi mentos monetario", dijo González. "Me identifico con Diego quien ama la aventura y que todo es posible en esta vida. No hay cosa que no se pueda hacer en nuestras vidas", dijo Scdoris.

¡Qué final! Por Rosario Vital - El Observador

E

n una competencia bastante pareja el equipo Halcones venció a Chelsea por 3 a 2 en los 60 minutos de juego que tuvo lugar en la Escuela Randall de la ciudad de Milpitas. El torneo "Copa Hermandad" auspiciado por El Observador Foundation y organizado por la Liga Pacífico Fútbol 8 (LPF8) llegó a su fin el pasado 8 de noviembre tras seis semanas de intenso juego. El "gato volador" ¡Gato! ¡gato! gritaban los seguidores de Orlando Orellana destacado defensa del equipo "Halcones" que no dejó pasar a ninguna bola a su terreno. El primer partido terminó empatado y ambos equipos jugaron parejo los primeros 20 minutos del segundo tiempo. "Halcones" en los últimos 10 minutos demostró que tenía mayor defensa y buenos delanteros. El tercer gol marcó la diferencia y aunque Chelsea desesperadamente buscó el empate, la suerte no estuvo a su favor porque el popular "Gato" hizo y deshizo en las canchas. Al final del partido los organizadores de "Copa Hermandad" agradecieron el apoyo a El Observador. "Queremos agradecer a Hilbert y Betty Morales por su gran apoyo a nuestra liga. Gracias por seguir promoviendo la sana diversión", dijo Hugo Zavala, Presidente de la LPF8. "A pesar de la crisis seguimos informando a nuestra comunidad latina y también promoviendo el deporte. Yo jugué en Kenia y aprendí del fútbol en un lugar tan lejos, me gusta apreciar a nuestra comunidad enfocada en la sana diversión lejos de las pandillas y violencia", dijo el Director y Pro pietario de EO, Hilbert Morales. "Copa Hermandad" contó con la participación de seis equipos locales que pertenecen a la LPF8. Estos seis equipos integrados por personas de diferentes ciudades del Área de la Bahía participaron también en el verano en la "EO Copa 2009". Con este evento cerramos el torneo de verano y ¡Nos vemos el próximo año con la EO Copa 2010! Δ (Ver todas las fotos www. el-observador.com)

Familia necesita ayuda

A

bsalón Barrientos (56) residente de San Jose, murió en un accidente de tránsito ocurrido en Santa Cruz. Barrientos perdió la vida por culpa de una conductora ebria que al parecer le tocaría cárcel de por vida. Por esta razón familiares y amigos han abierto una cuenta en el Banco de América para ayudar a los hijos que han quedado en el desamparo. La cuenta está a nombre de Abasalón y Edith Barrientos y el número es 01578-70198. Vecinos y familiares el pasado domingo 8 de noviembre se solidarizaron con la familia y organizaron un lavado de autos. Se agradece su contribución.

Leyenda del Viernes 13 Por Mario JimĂŠnez Castillo El Observador

D

urante mĂĄs de setecientos aĂąos el dĂ­a Viernes 13 se ha considerado como un dĂ­a de augurios perniciosos y misteriosos. Desde los primeros albores de la era cristiana, los obispos de Roma temerosos que algĂşn dĂ­a claudicaran sus juicios y dictĂĄmenes, tomaron la decisiĂłn de aniquilar a todo aquel que tuviera ideas contrarias a lo establecido por los valores religiosos que ellos profesaban.

Siglos mĂĄs tarde, hombres de ciencia, grandes letrados y filĂłsofos, formaron "La Orden de los Templarios",organizaciĂłn que supuestamente aĂşn no revela del todo grandes secretos sobre la parte humana de Jesucristo. En la ĂŠpoca medieval el Vaticano se vio en aprietos porque los caballeros del temple habĂ­an propagado su poder y creencias por toda Europa. En el siglo XIV, varias monarquĂ­as del viejo continente habĂ­an caĂ­do presas del infortunio, la austeridad comenzĂł a ahondar en sus arcas, entonces los templarios comen-

Al observar Clemente V (Papa de 1305 a 1314) como avanzaban las obras de los templarios, como esparcĂ­an sus dominios y como ganaban aliados, entonces, con la ayuda del rey Felipe IV de Francia,decidieron formular una maquiavĂŠlica idea para exterminarlos a todos y para ello fraguaron un plan que les servirĂ­a de cuartada a la hora de llevar a cabo tan despiadada faena. El 11 de septiembre de 1307, Clemente V, comenzĂł a enviar misivas a toda Europa, en ella se llamaba a todos los guardianes de la iglesia a que estuvieran preparados para realizar una gran obra en nombre de Dios, al mismo tiempo se les pedĂ­a que abrieran los sobres el dĂ­a viernes 13 de octubre. Al amanecer de ese dĂ­a las cartas fueron abiertas y en ellas Clemente V, proclamaba que "habĂ­a tenido un sueĂąo revelador", una visiĂłn en la cual el mismĂ­simo Creador le pedĂ­a que extirpara a los templarios de la tierra porque eran hechiceros malignos, ensalmistas y sodomitas de juicio apĂłstata, que denigraban su creaciĂłn, por ello debĂ­an ser quemados en la hoguera. Aquel dĂ­a se iniciĂł la cacerĂ­a de brujas y miles de personas fueron calcinadas, mutiladas y salvajemente asesinadas. Lo mĂĄs triste del caso es que aquella abominable matanza fue ejecutada por motivaciones econĂłmicas y polĂ­ticas. Por aquella gran masacre del dĂ­a viernes 13 de octubre de 1307, debido a la agonĂ­a de los miles de hombres que fueron asesinados en esa fecha, por ello se considera de muchos agĂźeros y augurios el dĂ­a viernes 13.

Planet 51

I

s a galactic sized animated alien adventure comedy revolving around American astronaut Captain Charles "Chuck" Baker, who lands on Planet 51 thinking he's the first person to step foot on it. To his surprise, he finds that this planet is inhabited by little green people who are happily living in a white picket fence world reminiscent of a cheerfully innocent 1950s America, and

whose only fear is that it will be overrun by alien invaders...like Chuck! With the help of his robot companion "Rover" and his new friend Lem, Chuck must navigate his way through the dazzling, but bewildering, landscape of Planet 51 in order to escape becoming a permanent part of the Planet 51 Alien Invaders Space Museum.

Por Martin del Palacio erá la crisis financiera que nos tiene a maltraer, las advertencias de los ecologistas sobre las consecuencias del calentamiento global o incluso el habernos dado cuenta que de verdad estamos a pleno en un nuevo milenio, lo cierto es que por alguna extraña razón las historias sobre el fin del mundo parecen haberse puesto de moda en Hollywood. Y lo más curioso de todo, es que la audiencia va a verlas con entusiasmo. Basta fijarse en el éxito que ha tenido "Zombieland", que aunque aparentemente trata sobre zombis también presenta con un toque de humor el fin del mundo, e incluso "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" propone en divertidos dibujos animados una versión del Apocalípsis para toda la familia. Sin embargo, nada de lo que hemos visto en la larga tradición del género ni de lo que llegará a los cines en los próximos meses se asemeja en escala a lo que ha logrado el director Roland Emmerich en "2012", un filme para el que no se ha escatimado dinero para efectos especiales a la hora de recrear de manera realista como Los Ángeles sucumbe ante un gigantesco terremoto o la Capilla Sixtina se deshace en mil pedazos en un cataclismo de igual magnitud que acaba en pocos minutos con Roma. La película está inspirada por una interpretación del calendario maya que predice el fin del mundo para dentro de tres años, lo cual si bien es una premisa muy prometedora para una película de ficción, ha llevado a numerosos científicos muy respetados a aclarar que no hay ningún fundamento racional que indique que el mundo se va a terminar el 21 de diciembre de 2012.

Necaxa aprende de sus errores

¡Qué final!

Pg11

guascalientes, (Notimex).- El equipo ya aprendió de los errores cometidos en Tijuana y es momento de retomar el carácter si queremos trascender en busca del ascenso, manifestó el jugador del Necaxa, Javier Arturo Ledesma. "El equipo va a retomar el carácter, ya dejamos atrás lo que pasó el domingo en Tijuana, ya aprendimos de los errores, analizamos bien las cosas y sabemos que hay que mejorar para el siguiente partido en casa contra el líder Irapuato", mencionó. Ledesma aseguró que en el partido contra Tijuana el equipo se mostró en buen nivel, "creo que jugamos bien en el primer tiempo, vino la marcación del penal en la reposición, (el equipo) bajó un poco el ánimo y ya lo demás fueron circunstancias del partido".
