Hola doctora, Hace 5 años entré a este pais legal con una visa de turista y decidí quedarme (cosa que creo fue un error). Tengo una hija de dos años nacida aqui yo soy de El Salvador y el padre Mexicano (igual sin papeles) yo vivo sola con mi hija. Quiero saber qué posibilidad existe de que yo pueda arreglar papeles en este pais. Otra cosa que quería preguntarle es en el caso que yo me quiera ir a México y me caso con un mexicano y me vuelvo ciudadana mexicana qué necesito para poder sacar a mi hija de este pais, ¿es forzoso tener el permiso del papá para sacar a la niña de aquí? Aparte de todo eso he escuchado comentarios de personas que comentan que al regresarse te quitan a tus hijos? Esto es muy confuso el no saber qué hacer espero su respuesta. Sincy Estimada Sincy, La primera pregunta es muy fácil. Si entró con visa puede casarse con un ciudadano norteamericano y ganar la residencia así. No tiene que salir del pais para hacer eso y es la única manera que se puede legalizar hasta que haya un cambio de la ley. Pero tiene que ser un matrimonio verdadero porque los oficiales son muy vivos y porque va a recibir la residencia con una condición y en 2 años tendrá que hacer papeles otra vez normalmente con la ayuda de su esposo La segunda pregunta es un poco mas dificil. Antes de salir del país, debe obtener un pasaporte para su hija. Para obtener el pasaporte va a necesitar el acta de nacimiento de la niña y el padre tendrá que ir con usted y la niña personalmente al correo para firmar en frente del oficial. (El acta de nacimiento tiene que tener el nombre del padre y madre.) Si el padre no puede acompañarlas, él tiene que firmar un consentimiento enfrente de un notario publico. De todos modos, va a necesitar el permiso del padre. También, los aerolíneas van a necesitar un documento firmado y notarizado por el padre dando su consentimiento si la madre llegue sola al aeropuerto con su hijo o hija. Yo nunca he oído que alguien va a quitar a su hijo si los dos entran legalmente. La única situación que yo puedo imaginar es si usted trate de entrar ilegalmente lo cual es muy peligroso para las dos y el Servicio de Inmigración la detenga. La hija podría entregarse temporalmente a un miembro de la familia que esté aquí legalmente o a una agencia del estado hasta que se puede juntar la niña con un pariente. Espero que esto conteste a sus preguntas. Buena suerte Beverly Black, Esq. es abogada de las leyes migratorias y de familia en Filadelfia, PA con más de veinte años de experiencia. Ella sugiere que usted busque consejo legal porque cada caso es diferente. Si quiere hacer una pregunta por favor use la siguiente dirección electrónica: LaMigraYTu@aol.com.

College Funds And Scholarships

By Hilbert Morales - El Observador

I

t is the time to plan ahead for your professional or vocational training in a college or university. Today, students from all social and financial backgrounds, may acquire assistance to meet the expected costs of going on from high school to a university or college of their choice. Too many Latino students of modest means assume that they will never be accepted by a university because their family does not have the money required to pay for tuition, books, housing (room and board), etc. Many years ago that would have been very true. Today it is not the case because many local organizations such as the San Jose GI Forum Scholarship Foundation, Ms. Rose Flores, Chair, have the mission and purpose to help local Latino high school graduates with scholarships, mentoring, and other assistance. Over the years since 1974, this local organization has collected money from corporate and individuals to provide scholarships. A total of $1.5 million has been awarded as scholarships to local Latino students who apply for assistance before the deadline (Second Friday of March, 2010). Their next awards dinner is being planned now for Tuesday, June 8, 2010. First of all, you must plan to take the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) when it is scheduled locally. Then, it is time to learn about application deadlines for all the schools that you are interested in attending. But before all that, you must plan to do your very best as a student who

has taken all the required coursework that qualifies you as a potential college student. These days, despite tax revenue shortfalls, none of the Universities of California campuses, state universities, or community colleges are being closed. A shortfall in operational funding has required them to raise tuition rates, however, your first concern needs to be to do the very best as a high school student so that you qualify academically. You see, government, society, and local organizations want to assist you, but you must first apply to indicate your interest, preparation and commitment for further training. In fact, this past month of November 2009, three organizations had representatives visit the National Hispanic University. One was the Hispanic College Fund whose main offices are at Washington, D.C. The second was the Hispanic Scholarship Fund located in San Francisco, CA. The specific mission of both these organizations is to encourage and assist Latino students who have prepared themselves to qualify for and attend some college or university. The third was the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU). It is recommended that you google these three organizations to learn about them now...not later. If you do not have access to a computer, you may use one at a local library or ask a professional friend to let you come over and use their computer. Go prepared with pen and notebook and, most importantly, for your own personal safety always let your parents

know where you are and who you are visiting. Remember that it takes a village to develop a child through his/her growth towards becoming a responsible adult in the community. Many are willing to be counselors and mentors, but are never asked by those who need a hand up, more than a hand out. The important thing is to make an effort to communicate your interest and your need for assistance. You cannot be shy about your personal dreams for the future. Invariably, they involve your parents, teachers, counselors and local community based organizations as well as national organizations. As always, the initial effort begins with you. So learn to ask for assistance. Anyone who has established themselves in business or profession has had that experience. So ask them to give you the benefit of their experience. It is no surprise that many will take the time to mentor, counsel and advise. Learn to ask "Who do you know that can tell me about....? Seek help and you will find it. Know that if you have the preparation and the potential brain power that needs development, many universities and colleges have the capacity and ability to encourage and support you. They are seeking the undeveloped and untrained mind that is prepared to become learned. Your job is to become prepared and be interested. Take it one step at a time. Ask yourself, "How do I learn to ....?" And then go after it.

Help Grant Valley Medical Center's Holiday Wishes

S

AN JOSE, Calif.-This giving season the Valley Medical Center Foundation has kicked off its firstever Holiday Wish List. The VMC Foundation seeks cash donations so that hospital staff can receive much-needed items to improve patient health, safety and comfort at the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center and the community clinics. "During these tough economic times, we have to work harder than ever before to find the resources we need to provide the best care to our patients," said Christopher Wilder, executive director of the VMC Foundation. "The Holiday Wish List gives my colleagues and me an opportunity to raise money for some very important projects suggested by the hospital's employees." Staff submitted more than 40 suggestions for items to raise money for on the Holiday Wish List. A committee narrowed the list to four of the most critical items, worth just over $30,000 in all, including: • Flu infection control stations to be placed at all hospital entrances and the clinics. These stations help visitors self-screen for illness, offer antibacterial gel and provide up-to-the-minute information on vaccines and outbreaks. • A soothing art installation in VMC's So-

brato Cancer Center, which features the stateof-the-art Linear Accelerator. The artworks will help reduce patients' feelings of anxiety of cancer diagnosis and treatment. • A motorized patient lift to position patients weakened by disease, or who are paraplegic or quadriplegic, on the imaging tables used by technologists and doctors. The motorized lift will reduce stress for patients and staff, and minimize the chance of pain and injury. • Monitoring devices to prevent brain injury patients from taking dangerous falls while in the hospital. These patients are at a very high risk of falling if they try to get out of bed on their own. A fall could result in a broken bone or other trauma. The VMC Foundation raises funds and awareness for the entire Santa Clara Valley Health & Hospital System. Donations for the Holiday Wish List can be made online at www.vmcfoundation.org/wishlist with credit card or PayPal, or checks can be sent to: VMC Foundation ATTN: Holiday Wish List 2400 Moorpark Ave., Suite 207 San Jose, CA 95128 Donations will be accepted through December 31st.

A

number of police officers surrounded Daniel Pham as he lay on the ground handcuffed. He also had 12 bullets inside of him. After responding to a phone call from Pham's girlfriend about a disturbance, San Jose Police Officers Jeffrey and Blackerby arrived at the Pham residence and found Daniel standing in the rear of the house smoking a cigarette and holding what the police called a "large knife". According to the police report, he had blood smeared over his torso, neck and possibly his face. The report also stated that Pham did not respond to the officers' commands. Instead he stared at the officers with no emotion while continuing to smoke his cigarette. Shots were fired just two minutes later. On Tuesday, November 24, several community organizations gathered outside of San Jose's City Hall and called for more police accountability. "We are here because we want to live in a safer San Jose and we don't want to live in fear of the police," said Michele Lew, President and CEO of the Asian Americans for Community Involvement organization. "We don't want to be called anti-police because we question the police."

Based on the questions raised by the tapes and the police reports, the Pham family and other concerned individuals and organizations will request a formal meeting with District Attorney Dolores Carr and ask that she convene an open grand jury to determine if criminal charges should be filed against Officers Jeffrey and Blackerby.

Daniel Pham’s Parents After reviewing the 911 tapes, police reports and other documents, many troubling questions were raised regarding Pham's death. "The policed failed to use common sense," said Richard Konda, Director of the Asian Law Alliance. "The tapes revealed that Pham was mentally ill. They were told this by the dispatcher and by his brother, Brian Pham." Neither of the officers reported that Pham was mentally ill. A barbed wire fence also enclosed the Pham's house. "Jumping over that barbed wire enclosed fence and into the backyard of the Pham house with backup on the way is contrary to reasonable police training," Konda said. "Weren't the officers putting themselves into a dangerous situation by jumping into the backyard over the barbed wire fence?" Another question was the actual size of the alleged "large

grande tuvo lugar el pasado 21 de noviembre en los Terrenos del Condado de Santa Clara donde 5,5,00 personas fueron vacunadas. Otras mil vacunas fueron proveídas a las dos clínicas locales. La espera ha ido mejorando a comparación de las primeras vacunaciones masivas . Muchas personas esperaron hasta siete horas para ser vacunados. En esta reciente vacunación cerca del mediodía ya había avanzado considerablemente. Trámites rápidos La hoja para completar la solicitud ha sido puesta en el internet del Departamento de Salud y esto ha reducido la demora para hacerse vacunar. Voluntarios iniciaron su trabajo desde muy temprano para asegurarse que llevan todas las documentaciones del caso. Las líneas también se han reducido debido a que más vacunas se ha suministrado a los proveedores de salud privado en el Condado de Santa Clara, para que más personas reciban la vacuna a través de sus proveedores. Hasta el momento el estado ha entregado 277,330 dosis de vacunas a los proveedores de salud públicos y privados incluyendo el sistema de Kaiser en el Condado. En las clínicas de vacunación pública realizadas en los últimos tres fines de semana se han distribuidos poco menos de 27,000 dosis para las personas en uno de los grupos de alto riesgo. Eso significa que la gran mayoría se ha ido a los proveedores de salud, incluyendo hospitales, clínicas y grupos privados y las prácticas médicas en el Condado de Santa Clara. Es importante para aquellos de alto riesgo, que quieren que la vacuna primero en contacto con su proveedor médico.

La información se publicará en www.sccphd.org cuando se confirmen las fechas y horas. Mientras que las líneas eran relativamente cortos en la clínica de los últimos, los que planean asistir a la clínica 6 diciembre todavía debe venir preparado para esperar. Lleve lo que necesita para sentirse cómodo, como sillas, comida y agua, así como algo para ocupar sus niños como juegos, libros y juguetes. Antes de salir de casa, comprobar el parte meteorológico para saber qué usar y si usted necesita estar preparado para la lluvia.

Hacu's President Speaks At Nhu

By Hilbert Morales, EL OBSERVADOR

T

he Hispanic Association of Colleges & Universities (HACU) was introduced by NHU's President, Dr. David Lopez, to this community's educators this past Thursday, November 19, 2009 when its president & CEO, Antonio R. Flores, spoke at a luncheon gathering of about 75 very interested attendees. From its national headquarters in San Antonio, Texas, the current "HACU on the Road" promotion was launched to promote national and inter-

national dialogue about the state of Hispanic higher education. Flores stated, "Within fewer that 20 years, Hispanics will represent one of every two new workers entering the U.S. labor force. Today, they comprise one of every three new workers." Hispanic youth are the focus of an effort to inform them of opportunities for professional employment in a global economy wherein the USA will not fare well without them as trained Hispanics." Following the presentation of a litany of statistics, the most significant of which is the information revealing that only 29.5 percent of Hispanic high school graduate ages 18-21 were enrolled in college in 2006 compared to 47 percent of non-Hispanic whites, Flores concluded that "in an economy increasingly driven by higher education, the state of Hispanic higher education constitutes a crisis that must be addressed. Educating the workforce of tomorrow is a national imperative." HACU has come to California because 34 percent of all Hispanic students live here and require the advocacy efforts being promoted today. Hispanic serving institutions (HSIs) have been identified to enable their becoming the target of federal grants and programs to support Hispanic education. For example, the College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007 (CCRAA) committed $200 million to HSIs over two years to support STEM (science, technology, engineering and math education & partnerships arrangements). Over 38 percent ($77 million) of these

funds were awarded to California institutions. Since 1995 HACU's advocacy efforts with the federal government in Washington, D.C., have

"Within fewer that 20 years, Hispanics will represent one of every two new workers entering the U.S. labor force. Today, they comprise one of every three new workers." Hispanic youth are the focus of an effort to inform them of opportunities for professional employment in a global economy wherein the USA will not fare well without them as trained Hispanics." led to over $1.2 billion in grants to HSIs. HACU's effort identifies legislation addressing higher Hispanic education needs across the PK20 pipeline and beyond. This effort includes appropriation requests for programmatic funding and identifies long-range education, labor, research and outreach priorities. It proposes amendment recommendations for the reauthorization of major legislation which impacts Hispanic higher education. Other initiatives include programs in information technology (IT), leadership capacity development, including the Latino Higher Education Leadership Institute and Youth Lead-

ership Development Forum. Also, HACU coordinates the Professions Capacity Building Program funded by DHHS through the National Center for Minority Health and Health Disparities. HACU's National Internship Program is currently the largest Hispanic internship program, placing Latino students in paid internships with federal agencies and corporate partners. Over the past 15 years, the value of HACU funded internships at California based institutions amounted to $297,427,450. In summary, HACU promotes higher Hispanic education through fundraising, advocacy, partnerships, legislation, student scholarships and paid internships. One persisting challenge is the propensity of Latino parents to want their high school graduate son or daughter to get a job which contributes now to the family's income (work hard) rather than defer employment to permit continued investment of time and treasure in development of talent (i.e., the formation of 'human economic capital'). Deferring a job until after college permits future employment at a much higher income and a greater personal and social return on investments of time and treasure made by the individual, family, and society. If you are interested in aligning your efforts with theirs, contact HACU's local office: Ms. Erica M. Romero, Executive Director of Western States Legislative Affairs, Sacramento, CA, phone 916-442-0392,or email: eromero@hacu.net.

Obama Begins Education Reform By Osvaldo Castillo El Observador.

O

n Tuesday, November 23, President Obama announced his administrations Science, Technology, Engineering and Math campaign (STEM), will be receiving $260 million in financial support from Time Warner Cable, Discovery Communications, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Sony. "This campaign will be a national effort," said Democratic Policy Committee Deputy Director Heather Higginbottom. "We need to get American children to the top of the pact in areas such as math and science." The President hopes to achieve this by getting students excited about math and science and the campaign's corporate sponsors will not only provide funding, they will provide educational programming as well. "The President has made it clear since his campaign that education reform was one of his top priorities and that we need to begin educating our next generation of inventers," said John Holden, Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy. "We need to get children involved with math and science in order to have a competitive economy in the future."

In addition to providing $100 million to the campaign over the next five years, Time Warner will use its stations to broadcast educational programming. Discovery Communication will also focus on developing content that involves science and math. The company will deliver the educational programming to several schools across the country at no cost. Sesame Street will produce 20 episodes relevant to the subjects (thirteen episodes will focus on science, while seven will focus on math) and Sony will create a contest in which game designers are asked to create math and science video games. "National Lab Day", will be sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Education Coalition works to support STEM programs for teachers and students at the U. S. Department of Education, the National Science Foundation, and other agencies that offer STEM related programs. The President will also host an annual national science fair in which students showcase their skills in the fields. "The President feels that if he can have athletic teams visit the White House, there is no reason why he can't have kids interested in math and science visit also."

The STEM Education Coalition is composed of advocates from over 1,000 diverse groups representing all sectors of the technological workforce from knowledge workers, to educators, to scientists, engineers, and technicians. The participating organizations of the STEM Education Coalition are dedicated to ensuring quality STEM education at all levels.

Turkey Dinner for All By Cinthia Rodriguez - El Observador

T

his past Thanksgiving week was like any other Thanksgiving week through out the years at the Sacred Heart Community Services center in San Jose. Truckloads of turkeys were emptied and handed out to families in need. A fire truck from local 230 of the San Jose Fire Department brought over 200 turkeys that were given out along with the those donated by the community. More than 250 volunteers helped organize the event. The volunteers put together boxes of food, helped people register, handed out the boxes and turkeys, and even helped carry the food. The families were given a box with basic foods like rice, beans, pasta, milk, juice, bread, fruit, cooking oil, and dessert. The family member receiving help was given the choice between turkey or chicken, with the popular pick of turkey and random requests for ham. For some people, that was the first time getting assistance, while others were more dependent on programs similar to it. People of all ages and ethnicities lined up to collect their food. As they went through the line they were reminded to have a Happy Thanksgiving. Sacred Heart began to give out the boxes of food Monday and ran it until the day before Thanksgiving. They will be doing the same during Christmas time and any help is greatly appreciated.

Christmas in the Park San Jose's longest running FREE exhibit celebrates 30 years of tradition and dedicated community support

S

an José, CA --- Come celebrate the holidays San José style at Christmas in the Park! Commemorating its 30th year at Plaza de Cesar Chavez, Christmas in the Park opens November 27th, with a few new additions and extra holiday sparkle, thanks to thousands of volunteers and generous community sponsors. This San José tradition is a two-acre winter fantasyland, complete with thousands of glittering lights, more than 60 one-of-a-kind animated holiday displays, hundreds of gorgeously decorated trees, daily community entertainment, unique food vendors and the jolly ole' man himself, Santa. Each year, over 8,000 volunteers invest more than 257,000 hours preparing Christmas in the Park. Their generous contributions of time and money help to make Christmas in the Park a "Gift of Joy and Magic" and a must-see holiday venue to a half million visitors each year. According to Christmas in the Park, Inc. Vice President Martie Degutis, "Christmas in the Park is an event put on by the community, for the community and would not exist without the community's support in volunteering and sponsoring the event. While the event is free to everyone, it unfortunately is not free to put on the event. That is why it is important for the community to show their support for this free family event." This year over 500,000 visitors will join the 31-day celebration of Christmas in the Park, which has become a central community point for community donations to those in need during the holidays. Christmas in the Park features the Community Giving Tree and showcases community collection kiosks for local charities, USMC Toys for Tots and Second Harvest Food Bank. This San José tradition opens Friday, November 27, 2009 with the City Tree Lighting Ceremony at 6:00 p.m., and runs daily 9:00 a.m. to midnight through Sunday, December 27, 2009, five days earlier than originally scheduled. The downturn in the economy and reductions in funding and sponsorships has forced this move. However, with additional community support and sponsorships, Christmas in the Park hopes to return to a normal schedule next year. Christmas in the Park is San Jose's longest running and largest free exhibit and remains a tradition for families and loved ones to enjoy and share life-long memories.

Las contribuciones generosas de su tiempo y dinero permiten tener un regalo de alegría y magia. Para este año se estima más de 500 mil visitantes al centro de nuestra ciudad. El lugar se ha convertido en el centro de operaciones también para poder hacer donativos. Recordemos que habrán estaciones para dejar juguetes (frente al Hotel Fairmont) a cargo de los Marinos y la estación de la organización Second Harvest Bank que colecta alimentos para distribuir a los más necesitados. "Navidad en el Parque" se exhibirá hasta el 27 de diciembre. Las personas pueden recorrer desde las 9 de la mañana hasta medianoche. Luces, color y ambiente navideño se podrá ver de manera gratuita, uno de los esfuerzos más que ciudad y organizaciones sin fines de lucro hacen de esto un gran éxito. "Todos los años visito este lugar, no veo exhibición que se repita, este año me sorprendió ver el trineo con Santa y mis hijos disfrutan esto. Un ambiente para toda la familia", dijo Guadalupe Ortiz. Por su parte Javier Mendoza este año no va a poder comprar regalos como en años anteriores. Sin embargo tiene este lugar para pasear a los suyos y caminar una tarde de invierno en San José. "No hay dinero, hay crisis pero hay mucho amor", dice el joven padre de Abigail y José.

Alacranes Musical tiene listo disco y calendario Por Verónica Pérez Raigosa

M

éxico, (Notimex).- El grupo Alacranes Musical, que hace unas semanas obtuvo el Grammy Latino, aseguró que está cargado de energía para seguir cumpliendo con su público, lanzar nuevo disco y hasta hacer un calendario muy sensual. En entrevista con Notimex, Omar Sánchez y Guillermo Ibarra señalaron que tras el cambio de alineación, hace más de cuatro meses, la banda sigue adelante y cosechando triunfos: "Al público le sigue gustando nuestro trabajo, que es lo importante". "Nosotros siempre nos preocupamos por dar amor al público y es lo que estamos recibiendo ahora", dijo el vocalista Omar Sánchez, al tiempo de señalar que a pesar del cambio de integrantes sus seguidores no ha hecho diferencias. Por su parte, Guillermo Ibarra comentó que "se suman más fans cada día", por lo que ya preparan un nuevo álbum que contendrá temas inéditos del que se

desprende el tema "Vivo tu piel". Aunque no reveló muchos datos, indicó que pronto su público se deleitará con este trabajo, donde México será el escenario de la grabación de su nuevo videoclip, que se realizará en unas semanas. Adelantó que los próximos días realizarán una serie de presentaciones por Guatemala y El Salvador, además de que tienen planeado para el próximo año seguir conquistando más lugares, a fin de que su música se escuche en otras latitudes. El músico, visiblemente emocionado reveló que debido a que sus fans lo pidieron están preparando un calendario con fotos muy sensuales de cada uno de los integrantes de la banda; sin embargo, aún no definen si éste saldrá en 2010 o después. Alacranes Musical cuenta ahora con la participación de Guillermo Ibarra, Omar Sánchez, Hugo Tremillo, Francisco Cornejo, Miguel Montero, Pedro Celis, Joel Rosales, Andrés Gutiérrez y Christian Rangel.

Mi caída fue parte de la coreografía: J-Lo

L

os Angeles, (Notimex).- La cantante Jennifer Lopez bromeó en una estación de radio sobre la caída que tuvo durante su actuación en los Premios American Music al asegurar que formaba parte de la coreografía. La caída de Lopez ocurrió mientras presentaba su tema "Louboutins" y en donde hizo una parodia de la aparición espectacular de un boxeador profesional, acompañada por su sequito y tras surgir a un costado del Teatro Nokia, caminó por los pasillos portando la tradicional vestimenta de un boxeador y cubierta de la cabeza. Al llegar al escenario se descubrió de la capa, apareció en diminuto short dorado y empezó a hacer movimientos rápidos de box con ambos brazos, al tiempo que era acompañada por otros bailarines que asemejaban boxeadores pero que también hicieron movimientos dancísticos cuando esta empezó a cantar el tema. El accidente ocurrió cuando ya había transcurrido gran parte de la canción y la cantante ayudada por el séquito empezó a caminar por el dorso de algunos de los bailarines y cuando caminaba el último se lanzó en un brinco pero para su mala fortuna ambos pies resbalaron y cayó sentada, luego se levantó y continuó con la coreografía.

Maribel tiene para rato

Son Swift y Michael Jackson máximos ganadores en American Music

L

os Angeles, (Notimex).- Taylor Swift con cinco, y Michael Jackson, con cuatro, fueron los máximos ganadores de la 37 entrega anual de premios American Music. Swift, estrella de la música country, se llevó el premio principal de Artista del Año al derrotar al propio Jackson y en Artista Favorita Femenina Pop/Rock, Artista, Album Country y Artista Adulto Contemporáneo. Jackson se llevó a su vez cuatro trofeos y con ello se consolidó en el récord del mayor número de trofeos que ha ganado en esta entrega un artista, con 24, incluido el de Artista del Siglo.

Jackson ganó como cantante favorito en Pop/Rock; Artista Favorito Soul/R&B y Album Favorito en ambas categorías. Contrario a la selección que hace la academia del Grammy, estos premios se basan en ventas y reportes de difusión en estaciones de radio por la reconocida empresa de medición de audiencias Nielsen, así como por el voto de los fans por Internet. Este vez actuaron en el escenario estrellas como Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Whitney Houston, Green Day, Jennifer López, Lil Wayne, Keith Urban, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige y Adam Lambert.

20 Years for

Cafe Tacvba, 5th City in Tour By Cinthia Rodriguez - El Observador

I

n a celebration of their 20th year in the Spanish rock music scene, Cafe Tacvba began their 20 Years, 20 Cities Tour in Villa Hermosa, Tabasco, in their native country of Mexico. Three shows later, they performed on familiar ground to the people of the Bay Area, at the Fox Theater in Oakland, California, this past Saturday. The intimate concert began with "El Borrego," from their second album and immediately people reacted. If you're not familiar with the track, imagine going down an escalator and next thing you know you're sliding, and all of a sudden you can see the steps again. The song has its ups and downs and the crowd knew how to march to the beat. The lineup included classics like "Maria," "La Ingrata," and most recently "Volver a Comenzar." Songs that were also being requested with literal shout outs from and most of the time, they were performed.

Band members RubĂŠn, Quique, Joselo y Meme are well adored by fans and during their performance, fans jumped on stage, danced and were returned to the main floor of the theater. Like in any other concert, the band took a breather and began the final set of songs strong. The band began playing in a garage to then move up to playing in bars and hit major venues with success. The lead singer himself cannot believe they have such young fans and continue to work on other projects. It doesn't matter when people discover the band, because sooner or later they will realize they have found a sound that is one of a kind. The band plans on releasing a documentary based on their last tour, Si No, which will include footage of the band in Japan, South America, United States, and Spain. Cafe Tacvba will be playing in Pomona, California this Friday and will continue their tour across the nation and finish in Mexico.

Horóscopo de Diciembre Por Mario Jiménez Castillo El Observador.

12 ideas para regalar obsequios sanos

P

ara comer más saludablemente:

Aceite y Vinagre: Si alguien está tratando de perder peso alimentándose de muchas ensaladas, el vinagre balsámico añejado y una cucharada o dos de aceite de oliva puede diferenciar una ensalada insípida de una sorpresa agradable. Sesiones con un nutricionista Mucha gente intenta comer menos grasa, menos carbohidratos, o se han acoplado a la dieta más reciente de moda. Pero lo que funciona bien para cada individuo puede variar muy drásticamente. Un nutricionista puede adecuar un plan de dieta a los gustos individuales de cada persona, y puede diseñar una dieta que resulte más factible para que una persona

la siga. Una clase de cocina sana Los supermercados como Whole Foods ofrecen clases sobre cómo cocinar comidas sanas. En Ann Arbor, El Sistema de Salud de la Universidad de Michigan (En Inglés, University of Michigan Health System, UMHS) Mfit, el departamento de promoción de salud, también ofrece clases. Otras tiendas y organizaciones comunitarias alrededor del país también ofrecen clases. Un libro sobre cómo alimentarse de manera sana Una opción, es Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy: The Harvard Medical School Guide to Healthy Eating (Coma, Beba y Manténgase Sano: La Guía de la Facultad de Medicina de Harvard para la Alimentación Saludable) por Walter C. Willett y P.J. Skerrett. También el libro You: On a Diet (Tu a

Dieta), un libro que ha tenido muchísima popularidad y que tiene seguidores. Olla eléctrica de cocción lenta, Olla eléctrica de cocción para arroz, Olla de cocción al vapor, (CROCK POT, RICE COOKER OR STEAMER) El que reciba este obsequio podrá a preparar la comida de manera más sana. Incluya algunas recetas para una deliciosa sopa o una comida que incluya vegetales cocidos al vapor. Para mantenerse activo: Tenida para practicar deportes de invierno Un certificado de regalo para un masaje La relajación y la reducción del estrés son importantes para la salud. Una clase de ejercicio entretenida Si el destinatario/a del ob-

sequio es alguien que se aburre rápidamente y tiene dificultad de seguir ciertos tipos de rutinas de ejercicio, intente inscribirlo/a en una clase de danza, o algunas sesiones de yoga, Tae Kwon Do, ejercicios aeróbicos en el agua, alpinismo, o ciclismo estático Un pase para entrar al sistema de parques Un permiso de entrada al sistema de parques le proveerá acceso a una serie de parques y actividades al aire libre. El que recibe este obsequio podrá andar en bicicleta a lo largo de los senderos para ciclistas en el verano, y podrá esquiar "cross country" en el invierno. Otras áreas del país también tienen excelentes sistemas de parques que puedan darles incentivo a las personas a que hagan ejercicio al aire libre. Una sesión con un entrenador profesional ¿Conoce UD. a alguien que no mantiene la motivación para hacer ejercicio? Tener un entrenador profesional es una excelente manera de guiar a las personas hacia sesiones de ejercicio que les ayuden a mejorar el tono muscular y la resistencia. Un ajuste a la bicicleta Una bicicleta con una cadena dañada no le hace bien a nadie oxidándose en el garaje. Regale un arreglo o un ajuste general a la bicicleta de un amigo/A, y ofrézcale ir de paseo juntos en sus respectivas bicicletas, este año.

Aries Tendrás que lidiar con gente difícil, almitas desubicadas y poco evolucionadas, no permitas que te afecten con sus bochornos. El sector más beneficiado en tu vida durante diciembre, será el trabajo. ¡Espera una sorpresa! Tauro Lo más importante del mes será que tu salud será tocada por el espíritu de la sanación y verás ante tus ojos como se desvanecen problemas tuyos y también problemas de la familia. Géminis Te espera mucho trabajo y esfuerzo, cosa que es una gran bendición en esos tiempos de crisis. Económicamente contarás con buenos ingresos y lograrás deshacerte de varias deudas. En el amor ve con cuidado. Cáncer Dejarás atrás el ayer, ahora vivirás el presente y en ese presente irán apareciendo Ángeles en tu camino, que no permitirá que nada malo te ocurra. Realizarás trámites y mucho papeleo en este mes. Leo En el trabajo todo se mantendrá estable, se aconseja que seas muy prudente porque aparecerá un par de propuestas muy tentadoras, pero a la larga se pueden convertirse en una pesadilla. Virgo Diciembre trae independencia, buena salud y bienestar para ti, no obstante tendrás que mantener alto el positivismo que te caracteriza porque ocurrirán situaciones caóticas a tu alrededor, pero al final siempre le encontrarás la solución a todo Libra Lo mejor es que durante este mes, no tomes decisiones que involucren cambios radicales. Aunque el cambio significa progreso para muchos, en tu caso no será así. Viajes y visitas a sitios que desconoces estarán en tu agenda. Escorpio La buena energía que proyectes le servirá de inspiración a los demás. Por medio de sueños tendrás revelaciones que te alertarán acerca de grandes decisiones que habrás de tomar y sobre sacudidas que han de ocurrir en el planeta. Sagitario El amor es el sector que más será tocado en este mes. Finalmente te entregarás a otra persona y le encontrarás el sentido que quieres y que siempre has querido para tu vida. Piensa antes de dar tus opiniones. Capricornio Deberás solucionar una situación que envuelve documentos, esto se resolverá con la cooperación de un amigo con el que siempre puedes contar. Es muy probable que decidas aislarte un poco. Acuario Al fin acaba la racha de malos ratos y sufrimientos. La economía se mantendrá con altibajos, pero para ti siempre habrá cosecha. Este sera un mes que siempre mantendrás en tu banco de memorias, porque algo verdaderamente maravilloso te sucederá. Piscis Cómo has batallado en los últimos meses, y que vueltas ha dado la vida, y seguirán las vueltas de la rueda de la fortuna, pero esta vez te toca ganar. Habrás de recuperar la confianza en el ser amado. Escríbale a Mario novoeu28@gmail.com o viste su website www.lalafia.com
