FEBRUARY 24 - MARCH 02, 2017

THE NEGLECT OF SOCIETAL STEWARDSHIP the constituencies of each of those 13 Original States 240 years ago.

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR Today many American elected officials are missing opportunities to emphasize the need to understand and apply the role of 'societal stewardship' in this democracy and its capitalistic economy. What is societal stewardship? It is inclusive consideration of the needs of communities, their economies, resources and environments. All Americans, would be well advised to read the Declaration of Independence and then its idealistic U.S. Constitution, which establishes that “We, the People” agree to be governed by a 'representative form of government', wherein elected officials represent our personal values and goals. The American Democracy was established before 1776 when the elected leaders of the original 13 British colonies assembled in Philadelphia to declare their independence as a nation. Then that same assembly crafted the U.S. Constitution as the basic law of this land. It was ratified by

The original U.S. Constitution was improved and made more inclusive as evidenced by the addition of the first ten amendments, known today as the 'Bill of Rights' (ratified September 1791), and written down to protect 'We, the People'. Since then, an additional 17 Amendments have been ratified. The most significant are the abolition of slavery (No. 13, ratified December 1865); prohibiting denial of right to vote based on race, color or 'previous condition of servitude' (No. 15, ratified January 1870) and prohibiting the denial of the right to vote based on sex (No. 19, ratified August 1920). The U.S. Constitution separated the authority and power of governance by defining the President's role and authority as its Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and, during wartimes, as its Commander in Chief (CIC). The role of the U.S. Congress, as its deliberative body of elected officials who have the responsibility to craft needed laws; endorse the President's nominations to the President's Cabinet and to approve candidates proposed to be members of the Judiciary branch (.i.e. the U.S. Federal

Courts, especially its U.S. Supreme Court). The outcome was three branches of governance: Executive; Legislative; and Judicial. Two more are The Press 'and State's Rights. It is very important to understand, support, and sustain the Free Press and its influence, but also the power of The Press. Almost immediately, The independent free Press was recognized as the Fourth Estate of governance because all concepts were presented, evaluated, and debated publicly in local newsletters prior to ending up in the U.S. Constitution. Open and transparent nonviolent deliberation by all constituents was encouraged and practiced. During those times (1700's), each community had its own newsletter and/ or newspaper...independently owned and operated by local citizens. The Federalist Papers was one such example. Just recently, persistent 'free press' inquiries led to the resignation of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, who had been appointed by President Trump to his Cabinet. Flynn had a dinner meeting on December 25, 2016 with Russia's President Vladimir Putin. Flynn had 'mis-spoken' to the President and Vice President

about this dinner meeting and its conversations, with the consequence that his integrity and trustworthiness had been compromised. Trump accepted Flynn's resignation. It is the role of the free and independent press to look into and report to the American public the truth and facts of any matter. Especially those issues dealing with national security. This is an example of the powerful influence of the free and independent press in any democratic community. The press is essential to keeping citizens educated and informed. Historically, the free independent press has been and is successfully eliminated by any and all dictators. This San Jose community needs to support its local independent free publications because today many socalled 'local publications' are controlled and operated by corporations having special interests. There is an opportunity for local readers to practice societal stewardship by ensuring that their local independent free press remains as such one. There are ultimately severe consequences to not having the facts or truth of any matter which impacts any and all decisions in this life. Just know that reporters and journalists

may look into matters which the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of our government may not fully expose in a transparent factual manner to its constituents. This role of the free press is essential to the informed decision-making activities of its citizens, legislators and leadership. Democracy cannot exist for long where the free press is controlled by the government (or a dictator). A fifth additional element of governance exists, but is not fully appreciated, understood or used: THE STATES RIGHTS. The 9th and 10th Amendment state that “all responsibilities and authorities not specifically granted to the central Federal government remain as 'powers residing within the States.' Today the fifty American States all have their own legislatures in which States Rights are practiced and redefined. Here is where societal stewardship may be practiced in a manner that reflects the priorities and values of each state's constituents. It is here where the States, using their authority and power to license businesses or grant charters to institutions, may establish local laws which require an enterprises' decision makers to deal with societal stewardship in addition to being profitable.

Un día con dignidad

Una gran lección de dignidad personal nos ha dado todos aquellos que participaron la semana pasada en las movilizaciones de “Un Día Sin Inmigrantes”, una jornada cívica ejemplar que hizo visible el drama humano de las familias migrantes que viven en la zozobra, por el clima de asedio oficial hacia los indocumentados. Cientos de restaurantes, supermercados y comercios cerraron sus puertas, miles de personas dejaron de asistir a sus centros de trabajo y participaron en marchas o protestas callejeras y, me atrevo a pensar, millones más se solidarizaron a distancia con la tragedia humanitaria que significa vivir con el miedo a la separación de sus seres queridos.

Es verdad que un gobierno goza del derecho irrefutable de hacer cumplir sus leyes y que la seguridad fronteriza es una condición necesaria para proteger la integridad de la población, pero en la aplicación de la ley debe también vigilarse el debido proceso y un trato digno para asegurar que todos puedan ejercer plenamente sus derechos en este país. Al clima de terror se han sumado filtraciones dolosas que sugieren la activación de 100,000 elementos de la Guardia Nacional para realizar redadas masivas de inmigrantes, una escena que evoca las deportaciones del presidente Dwight Eisenhower de 1954. Aunque la versión fue desmentida, logró sembrar la duda en el imaginario colectivo. Desafortunadamente todo parece indicar que los escenarios extremos

que muchos temían tienen el potencial de materializarse. Una nueva filtración de los planes que revisa la Casa Blanca sugieren que el universo potencial de personas sujetas a deportación podría elevarse a 8 millones de personas, según Los Ángeles Times. De aprobarse estos memorandos en los términos redactados por el secretario del Departamento de Seguridad Nacional (DHS), John Kelly, cualquier persona no autorizada en Estados Unidos es elegible de ser deportada, aún si no está convicta de un delito. También incluye a quienes hayan cometido fraude o violado sus órdenes de deportación.   Aunque es previsible que algunas de estas eventuales acciones sean impugnadas en los tribunales, las

filtraciones ya están teniendo el efecto de provocar que muchos inmigrantes decidan empezar a vender sus propiedades y consideren seriamente una “auto-deportación”, como ocurre en algunas comunidades de Charleston, Carolina del Sur. Por ello más que nunca es crucial insistir en la importancia de que sepas que tienes derechos, independientemente de tu situación migratoria, que si eres extranjero tienes el derecho de contactar a tu consulado y a un abogado para defender tus derechos. Tu mejor defensa es el conocimiento de los beneficios que te otorga la ley. Para más información visita www. laredhispana.org.

¡LA CASA BLANCA DE TRUMP ES CAOS, MENTIRA Y CORRUPCIÓN! En el día que la nación celebra el día del Presidente, también se abuchea el primer mes de la presidencia de Donald Trump, el cual ha dejado una estela de caos político, mentira en casi cada informe que enuncia y una corrupción jamás vista en un Presidente.   La administración Trump aún no tiene un gabinete completo, debido a la mala reputación de algunos de sus nominados con respecto a sus ideales sobre inmigración, salario mínimo federal, y conf licto de intereses. Algunos confirmados han necesitado de la intervención del Senado con mayoría republicana y el Vicepresidente, después de fallar sus nominaciones en los comités bipartidistas. A esto se aúna el escándalo sobre la renuncia del Consejero de Seguridad Nacional

para la Presidencia, General Michael Flynn por mentir sobre conversaciones con autoridades rusas para mediar en la reducción de sanciones a Rusia y el de la Consejera del Presidente Kellyanne Conway en un claro caso de corrupción por utilizar su posición política para promover la marca comercial de la hija de Trump, Ivanka después que la cadena Nordstrom decidiera retirar sus productos de las tiendas. La mayor derrota sufrida por Trump ha sido la suspensión de su orden ejecutiva sobre inmigración en contra de los musulmanes, la cual ha sido tan categórica como la respuesta del Presidente mexicano Peña Nieto de rehusarse a pagar por el muro fronterizo o la del ex Primer Ministro de Suecia al preguntar ¿Qué es lo que fuma Trump? Ridiculizándolo, al aludir un ataque terrorista en ese país que nunca sucedió.

La mentira ha sido fundamental para el gobierno de Trump, empezando con la más grande de todas al manifestar que millones de personas votaron ilegalmente, hacer uso de números erráticos al clamar el índice de crimen y desempleo en la nación, exagerar número de empleos que empresas han prometido crear en USA, mentir sobre el costo del muro fronterizo y quien pagara por su construcción, sobre las redadas migratorias que capturan no solo personas con record criminal, sobre mostrar sus impuestos al ser Presidente, mentir al decir que residiría en La Casa Blanca únicamente, y que tenía un plan de salud mejor que obamacare, mentirle a la nación al acusar a los medios de prensa como enemigos de Trump y Los Estados Unidos. La vergüenza más enorme de la actitud de esta administración consiste en que el Secretario de prensa, Sean Spicer, y la Consejera a la presidencia

Walter Monge-Cruz Comisión Cívica Democrática

Kellyanne Conway, quienes sin mediar en la ética política que sus posiciones exigen al promover la imagen del Presidente, han hecho desde el primer día de gobierno un habito el defender las mentiras de su jefe y otros personajes del recién instalado gobierno con mentiras propias y acusar a los medios de prensa de manipular la verdad en contra de Trump. Trump ha dejado una marcada estela de corrupción, el mayor acto es que el Presidente ha decidido utilizar la propiedad familiar del exclusivo club Mar a Lago en Florida para hacer trabajo presidencial cada fin de semana, haciendo uso del tesoro público para pagar por su estadía en ese lugar. El exclusivo club ha doblado el valor de membresía desde que el Presidente se hospeda allí. Igualmente, el dinero público es utilizado para pagar por la estadía de la Primera Dama en Trump

Tower en N Y, y en los viajes de sus hijos a Uruguay y Emiratos Árabes Unidos para promover la apertura de nuevos hoteles de la familia Trump. El costo para los contribuidores estadounidense ha sido de quince millones en el primer mes de su presidencia. China además ha brindado poder absoluto al Presidente sobre la marca Trump en ese país, alarmando así al comité de ética presidencial sobre los abusos de poder que este presidente ejerce por su posición política. La Casa Blanca de Trump es caos, mentira y corrupción, y las protestas nacionales hoy clamando: Día de ¡No es mi Presidente! Ref lejan la lucha política que endura en la nación.  @waltermongecruz Presidente Comisión Cív ica Democrática

WHICH COLLEGE IS RIGHT FOR YOU? 3 QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF

writing and teaching. I switched my major to English Writing & Rhetoric; became a published author; taught at inner-city schools; and now I work for the U.S. Department of Education. My point is you never really know where life will take you. So if you’ve always wanted to be a doctor, great: get into the best program you can—just don’t close yourself off to trying new things. If you’re not really sure or have no clue, that’s fine; you have options. Start at a university with an undecided major. Looking to save some dough? Knock out a few basic courses at your local community college (this may give you a better indication of what you like and don’t like—just make sure your credits will transfer). Or, you can take some time off and travel or work; some good old-fashioned real-world experience can be a great eyeopener—check out this sweet career search tool for info and inspiration!

FEBRUARY 24 - MARCH 02, 2017 also a lot of fun. So, think about what type of school might be the best fit for you. Are you all about a big city or a more rural location? Do you dream of a huge campus with tons of people or do you like the idea of a closer-knit community? What about study abroad or certain social groups, organizations, clubs, and sports? These should also be factors you should include in your big decision. By this point you might be wondering how you’re going to find all this info out and use it to compare various programs. My friends, I give you College Scorecard. This site is designed to help you find schools based on degree, location, and other search criteria. Plus, you can compare schools based on school size, average annual cost, graduation rate, average salary after graduation, etc. 3. How can I afford this?

2. Have I explored all my options?

here are three questions to help you figure out “What’s best for me?”

“So, where are you going to school next year?” Sometimes it feels like this is the only question people ask you. Maybe you’ve been dreaming about a certain university, or maybe you have no idea what you even want to do with your life, let alone where to go to school. Choosing the right program is one of the biggest decisions of your life (no pressure). But before you take the plunge,

1. Do I know what I want to do with my life? If you can answer a resounding “Yes!” to this question, I would suggest you stay open to new possibilities. For example, I really thought I wanted to be a psychologist, so I found a great school with a great psychology program. However, after my first semester I realized I liked psychology, but I loved

Maybe you’ve always wanted to go to Harvard; everyone in your family went to Harvard—Harvard is for you! Or is it? Sometimes the school that looks best on paper (or in your head) isn’t the best allaround fit for you. Check out competing programs; look for info like tuition, graduation rate, earning potential, typical total debt, etc. Also, college is fun. Like FUN!!!! Yes, you’re there to work hard and get an education so you can become a contributing member of society and fulfill your dreams; but college is

Start hunting for scholarships and grants. Like YouTube tutorials and social media groups, there are scholarships and grants for almost anything you can think of. Next fill out your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®). It’s free, just like the name says, so if you haven’t filled out your FAFSA yet do it now—I mean, finish this blog first—then complete your FAFSA. Think about what you really want, do your research, look at all your options, and choose the best program for you—after all, it’s your decision.

Better Business Bureau

DELIGHTFUL DELIVERIES: HOW TO MAKE SURE YOUR PACKAGES ARRIVE SAFELY Better Business Bureau Online shopping can be a great way to beat the winter blues. It’s been a few months since the holidays, but there’s something about a package delivered to your front door that brings back the festive spirit! One thing that’ll dampen your mood, however, is if something goes wrong with delivery. Getting something delivered has associated risks; from phishing emails and delivery scams to package theft. Follow these tips from your BBB to ensure your packages are delivered safely and your personal and financial information isn’t compromised: Be a savvy online shopper. • It’s easy for scammers to create fake websites that take your money but never send goods. In 2016, BBB Scam Tracker received more than 2,700 reports of online shopping scams, and 74% involved a monetary loss! • Before shopping on a website, look it up on bbb.org to make sure it’s trustworthy. There, you can see its rating, complaint history and reviews from past customers. • Make sure the site is secure – look for the “https”, where the “s” stands for “secure” – and read its privacy policy. Check for a physical address along with both a phone number and email for customer service, and read the refund and exchange policies carefully. Protect your packages from theft. • First off, don’t schedule deliveries unless you’ll know you’ll be home and not on vacation. If you can’t avoid having a package delivered when you’re not home, have it delivered to the post office or other carrier facility where you can pick it up, consider having it delivered to your work or ask a friend or trusted neighbor to pick it up from your home for you. • It’s always a good idea to request a tracking number for your package and track it as it’s shipped – paying attention to estimated delivery dates. Save this number, along with order confirmations and other delivery information.

BUSINESS

• You can sometimes choose to require a signature for delivery – this ensures that a package won’t just be left on a doorstep. You can also request that a package be delivered to a more secure back or side door. Watch out for phishy delivery emails. • In 2016, consumers nationwide reported more than 1,200 phishing scams to BBB Scam Tracker, and the median loss was $400 – watch out! • How it works: fraudsters, pretending to be from an identifiable shipping service, send “missed delivery” or “shipping confirmation” notices to unsuspecting email users. Recipients are instructed to click on a link or open an attachment to complete the delivery process. Unfortunately, the links and attachments will likely unleash a virus or other malware that can track your logins and passwords as you travel the internet or corrupt your computer files. • Don’t open any emails you aren’t expecting or click on links or attachments within them. Even if you did order a package, legitimate delivery companies will leave a tag on your door if they’re unable to deliver, not send an email. Don’t let a delivery scam steal your info. • The scam begins like this: a delivery person shows up at your door out of the blue with a gift basket. You don’t know who sent it, and neither does the delivery person. However, they inform you that you need to pay a nominal “verification fee” with your credit or debit card. The card scanner, however, is actually a skimmer and will collect your credit/debit card number and security code. Then, you may be subject to identity theft or fraudulent charges. • Protect yourself by being wary of any packages delivered by an unrecognized delivery service or source – you should recognize the company. If you don’t, look it up on bbb.org. Unless you ordered the package and expected to have to pay, you should never be required to pay a fee to receive a package or gift. If you’re receiving alcohol, you may have to show ID, but never supply your card information!

Hacer compras en línea puede ser una gran manera de vencer la tristeza del invierno. Ha pasado unos meses desde la temporada de fiestas, ¡pero un paquete entregado a su puerta trae de vuelta el espíritu festivo! Una cosa que puede arruinar su humor, sin embargo, es si algo va mal con la entrega. Una entrega de paquetes tiene riesgos asociados; desde correos electrónicos de phishing y estafas de entrega hasta el robo de paquetes. Siga estos consejos de su BBB para asegurarse de que sus paquetes se entreguen de forma segura y su información personal y financiera no está comprometido. Sea un comprador en línea experto. • E s fácil para los estafadores crear sitios web falsos que toman su dinero pero nunca envían productos. En 2016, el Rastreador de Estafas de BBB recibió más de 2.700 informes de estafas de compras en línea, ¡y 74% involucraron una pérdida monetaria!

• A ntes de hacer compras en un sitio web, busque el sitio en bbb.org para asegurarse de que sea confiable. Allí, usted puede ver su calificación, historial de quejas y comentarios de clientes anteriores. • A segúrese de que el sitio es seguro – busque el “https”, donde el “s” significa “seguro”, y lea su política de privacidad. Busque una dirección física junto con un número de teléfono y un correo electrónico para el servicio al cliente, y lea cuidadosamente las políticas de reembolso e intercambio. Proteja sus paquetes del robo. • P rimero, no debe tener un paquete entregado a menos que usted sepa que va a estar en casa y no de vacaciones. Si usted no puede evitar tener un paquete entregado cuando no está en casa, téngalo entregado a la oficina de correos u otra facilidad del portador donde usted puede recogerlo. También puede tenerlo entregada a su trabajo, o pídale a un amigo o un vecino de confianza que lo recoja de su casa para usted.

• Siempre es una buena idea solicitar un numero de seguimiento para su paquete y rastrearlo – prestando atención a la fecha de entrega estimada. Guarde este número, junto con su confirmación de pedido y otra información de entrega y envió. • A veces puede optar por exigir una firma para la entrega – esto asegura

5

que un paquete no se dejará en su puerta. También puede solicitar que un paquete sea entregado a una puerta posterior o secundaria más segura. Tenga cuidado con los correos electrónicos sospechosos acerca de entrega. • E n 2016, consumidores reportaron más de 1.200 estafas de phishing al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB, y la pérdida promedio fue $400 - ¡tenga cuidado!

• C omo funciona: los estafadores, pretendiendo ser de un servicio de entregas legítimo, envían avisos de “entrega fallado” o “confirmación de envió” por correo electrónico. El correo electrónico le indica a hacer clic en un enlace o abrir un archivo adjunto para completar el proceso de entrega. Desafortunadamente, los enlaces y archivos adjuntos pueden contener un virus u otro malware que puede dañar los archivos de su computadora o rastrear su información de inicio de sesión y sus contraseñas. • No debe abrir ningún correo electrónico que usted no está esperando o hacer clic en enlaces o archivos adjuntos dentro de ellos. Incluso si usted ordenó un paquete, las compañías de entrega legitimas dejaran una etiqueta en su puerta si no pueden entregarlo, no van a enviar un correo electrónico. No deje que una estafa de entrega robe su información. • L a estafa comienza como así: una persona de entrega aparece inesperadamente en su puerta con una canasta de regalo. Usted no sabe quién lo envió y tampoco lo sabe la persona de entrega. Sin embargo, le informan que usted necesita pagar una “tarifa de verificación” nominal con su tarjeta de crédito o débito para aceptar el regalo. El escáner de tarjetas, sin embargo, es en realidad un “skimmer”, y recogerá su número de tarjeta de crédito o débito y código de seguridad. Luego, usted puede estar víctima de robo de identidad o cargas fraudulentas.

• P rotéjase por ser cauteloso con cualquier paquete entregado por un servicio de entrega no reconocido – debe reconocer a la empresa. Si no ha oído de la empresa, búsquelo en bbb.org. A menos que usted ordenó el paquete y se espera tener que pagar por lo, nunca debe ser obligado a pagar para recibir un paquete o regalo. Si está recibiendo alcohol, es posible que tendrá que mostrar su identificación, pero nunca suministre la información de su tarjeta.

LA SALUD DENTAL ES IMPORTANTE PARA LOS ‘DIENTES DE LECHE’ DE LOS NIÑOS

Photo Credit: SUDIO 1ONE - Fotolia.com

StatePoint Los padres y personas responsables de cuidar a los niños podrían estar subestimando la importancia de la atención dental para los “dientes de leche” de los niños. De acuerdo a los Centros para el Control y Prevención de Enfermedades, sólo el 63% de los niños entre 2 y 4 años de edad ven el dentista al menos una vez al año. La mayoría de los beneficios dentales cubren consultas de atención preventiva dos veces al año sin costos a su bolsillo, y estas consultas son importantes para los niños pequeños. Los dientes de leche (también conocidos como dientes primarios) desempeñan un papel importante en el desarrollo saludable general de los niños. Si comienzan las caries y se dejan sin tratamiento, pueden volverse dolorosas y posiblemente infectarse. La pérdida de estos dientes de modo prematuro puede afectar la forma de comer y de hablar, el aprendizaje y la autoestima. Los dientes de leche ayudan a guiar el camino para que los dientes permanentes salgan en la posición correcta. “La caries es prevenible. La inversión de unos pocos minutos cada día por parte de los padres y personas que cuidan a los niños, junto con revisiones dentales periódicas, hacen mucho por crear sonrisas saludables que duren toda una vida”, dice la Dra. Diane Monti-Markowski, directora de programas clínicos de Cigna Dental. Ella ofrece estos consejos de higiene bucal para quienes se ocupan de cuidar a niños pequeños: • Asegure que su niño visite al dentista durante su primer cumpleaños o dentro

de los primeros seis meses después de que aparezcan los primeros dientes. • Conforme empiezan a salir los dientes de un niño, cepíllelos suavemente dos veces al día con un cepillo de tamaño infantil y agua.

Dealing With Unsanitary Floodwaters

Santa Clara County Health Officer Statement Regarding Potential Risks in Coming in Contact With Floodwaters SANTA CLARA COUNTY, CALIF. After the flooding incidents throughout the South Bay, Dr. Sara Cody, Santa Clara County Health Officer, provides the following information for people living in areas that are flooding. Specifically, contact with floodwaters can pose risks to health and safety.   Floodwaters may contain materials that are hazardous to health and it is best to avoid any contact with the water. Raw sewage, animal wastes, household chemical compounds, bacteria and other potential contaminants may be in the water, so people should take every precaution to stay away from the water to avoid illness or injury.   The following guidelines have been provided by the Public Health and Environmental Health Departments for anyone who has been in contact with floodwaters:   • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and clean water. If any part of your body has come in contact with floodwaters, wash with soap and clean water.  If you have children who have come in contact with floodwater, make sure they wash too.   • If you have open cuts or sores, protect them.  Keep them as clean as possible by washing with soap and applying an antibiotic ointment

to discourage infection. If a wound develops redness, swelling or drainage, contact your health provider and get immediate medical attention.  

• Avoid eating any food that may have come in contact with floodwater. If you suspect food came in contact with the water, throw it away.  Undamaged, commercially canned foods can be saved if you remove the labels, thoroughly wash the cans and disinfect them with a solution consisting of one tablespoon of bleach in one gallon of water.   Food containers with screw caps, snap lids, flip caps, snap caps, twist caps and home-canned foods should be discarded if they have come into contact with floodwater because they cannot be disinfected.  

• Do not let children play with toys which have been in contact with floodwater until the toys have been disinfected. Disinfect toys using a solution of one cup of bleach in five gallons of water.   The Santa Clara County Department of Environmental Health is providing health and safety guidelines for individuals returning to flooded areas.  Visit:  www.EHinfo.org   and  https://www.sccgov.org/sites/cpd/programs/fsp/Pages/flood. aspx

• Empiece a usar el hilo dental todos los días cuando ya haya dos dientes juntos. • No ponga a su bebé a dormir con una botella de fórmula, leche, jugo o cualquier otro líquido que no sea agua. • Considere introducir la pasta de dientes a los niños que tengan 2 años de edad o más y que puedan seguir indicaciones para escupir después de cepillarse. La Asociación Dental Estadounidense recomienda utilizar pasta de dientes con flúor de más o menos el tamaño de un grano de arroz en el caso de niños de menos de 3 años de edad y una cantidad del tamaño de un chícharo/ guisante en el caso de niños que tengan entre 3 y 6 años de edad. Para la edad de 3 o 4 años, su niño debe poder cepillarse con su supervisión. • Haga que cepillarse sea divertido. Deje que el niño elija el color de su cepillo de dientes. Ponga una canción favorita o un minutero para ayudar a los niños a entender que un buen cepillado toma alrededor de dos minutos dos veces al día. “Los adultos también pueden reforzar la importancia de la salud bucal mediante sus actitudes”, añade la Dra. Monti-Markowski. “Motivar los buenos hábitos y mostrar una actitud positiva al visitar al dentista pueden poner las bases necesarias para que los niños conserven dientes sanos durante todas sus vidas”.

MIDWIFERY MAKES ITS WAY BACK INTO CHILDBIRTH CONVERSATION Eric Tegethoff Public News Service Midwives are becoming a larger part of the picture when it comes to childbirth, growing in popularity for many mothers across the country. Photo Credit: Pixabay Ushered to the fringes during the 20th century, the most recent data from the CDC shows midwives were the lead care providers for nearly one in 11 births in 2013. The renewed popularity isn't much of a surprise at Group Health, which has offered a midwifery program for a quarter century. Susan Warwick, Program Chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Group Health, says midwives have the advantage of focusing solely on patients. "They do a lot of just comfort care and labor support, where physicians tend to be taking care of higher-risk

patients," she said. "They might be in and out of the room a bit more because they're managing a larger group of patients in the hospital when they're in labor." However, midwifery still is mired in myths. Very few deliveries happen at home. According to the American College of Nurse-Midwives, 97 percent of midwife-assisted births take place in a hospital. Warwick says it's not the antiquated profession some imagine, either. She says they never hesitate to use appropriate technology or medical options to protect the health of the mother and her child. Midwives also are extensively trained. In Washington state, they must first become licensed as registered nurses, and then earn a master's degree from a stateaccredited midwifery training program. They assist in more than just delivery, spending time with

families to focus on prenatal care and labor. At Group Health, expecting families can join a midwife-mediated group called CenteringPregnancy where they meet with other expecting families. Warwick says families meet throughout their pregnancies, including postpartum meetings.

"This is really loved by our patients because they form relationships with other members and families and it starts very early with this support in pregnancy," she explained. "And then they sometimes go on to continue to get together after they deliver." Group Health has received a lot of positive feedback for the CenteringPregnancy program. A survey by the health group found 96 percent of participants preferred receiving prenatal care in a group rather than in one-on-one appointments.

IMMIGRATION RAIDS: WHAT TO KNOW

Redadas de inmigración: lo que usted debe saber

you do not consent to the search

If you are detained by immigration authorities outside of your home: • Remain quiet • Do not reveal your immigration status • Ask to speak with the nearest consulate of your home country • Ask to speak with your attorney • Do no sign any paperwork • Figure out who has detained you • Request an interpreter if you need one • Do not provide false information • Do not provide false documents

Supervisor Dave Cortese Rumors about immigration raids in our county have surfaced over the past few weeks. The rumors have spread across social media, but none were ever confirmed. Understandably, many are trying to inform their immigrant friends and colleagues in an effort to keep them safe. Unfortunately, without being verified, these rumors cause more anxiety and fear among residents. If you hea r of a pot ent ia l ra id in the community, verify it before you share it with others. If you are an immigrant, you are encouraged to contact the County’s Office of Immigrant Relations or my office to report the potential incident. Do not engage or go near the raid activity. In the meantime, immigrant residents should be informed about their rights at home, in the workplace, and in the community. The Mexican Consulate of San Jose has released the following information informing immigrant residents in the event of immigration authorities visiting your home: • • • • • • •

• •

Do not open the door Remain calm Do not run away Do not disclose your immigration status A sk why they are at your home and request an interpreter if you need one Ask who they are and who they are looking for A sk them to show you a cour t order through the window or slide a copy under the door Make sure the cour t order ha s your name, address, and is signed by a judge If they do not show you a court order, you have the right to deny them entry into your home

If immigration authorities enter your home without a court order or your permission: • Ask for the names and badge numbers of the immigration officers and tell them

The County has affirmed its commitment to serving and protecting all residents, including those without citizenship status. In December 2016, Supervisor Cindy Chavez and I held a hearing on immigration in which our County Sheriff, Laurie Smith, reaf f irmed her commitment to uphold the county’s current civil detainer policy which limits coordination with ICE. At the same hearing, San Jose Police Chief Eddie Garcia proclaimed that his department and officers will not cooperate or act as immigration agents. In the wake of President Trump’s executive order on January 25, 2017, I have also reaffirmed my commitment to ensuring that our law enforcement officers are not employed as immigration agents. Most recently, the County Counsel filed a lawsuit in federal cour t challeng ing Trump’s executive order on immigration enforcement, which seeks to w ithhold federal funds from cities and counties like ours that do not assist in the deportation of immigrant residents. President Trump’s executive order threatens to withhold up to $1.3 billion in federal funds from Santa Clara Count y. Though the outcome of the lawsuit is yet to be determined, I am confident that we will prevail. For now, the best course of action is to be informed and to have a plan. For more information or resources on how to protect you and your family, please visit the Office of Immigrant Relations website at https:// www.sccgov.org/sites/oir/Pages/links.aspx or contact my office at 408-299-5030.

Supervisor Dave Cortese Los rumores sobre las redadas de inmigración en nuestro condado surgieron la semana pasada. Los rumores se han extendido a través de los medios de comunicación social y mensajes de texto, pero ninguno de esos rumores ha sido confirmado. Es entendible que muchos estén tratando de informar a sus familiares, amigos y colegas inmigrantes en un esfuerzo por mantenerlos a salvo. Desafortunadamente, al hacerlo, sin ser verificarlos, estos rumores, causan más ansiedad y miedo entre todos. Si usted se da cuenta sobre una redada de inmigración en la comunidad, lo primero que debe hacer es verificar la información antes de compartirla con otros. Se responsable y pregúntele a la persona que está compartiendo la información si el o ella es testigo de la situación o ha obtenido la información de otra manera. Si usted es un inmigrante, y se da cuenta sobre una redada de inmigración en su comunidad, le sugiero que se comunique con nuestra Oficina de Relaciones Inmigrantes o con mi oficina para reportar la situación. Esto es para asegurar su seguridad y evitar que usted sea detenido involuntariamente. Por ahora, el mejor curso de acción es estar informado sobre sus derechos y tener un plan de acción. La comunidad inmigrante tiene ciertos derechos a pesar de que no tenga estatus migratorio. El Consulado de Mexico en San Jose ha diseñado un infográfico que continene la siguiente información en caso si agentes de inmigración se presentan en su hogar. Se sugiere que: • • • • • •

Si las autoridades de inmigración entran a su casa sin una orden judicial o sin su

permiso, pida los nombres y números de identificación y que no les ha dado consentimiento. Si usted es detenido por autoridades de inmigración fuera de su hogar: • • • • • • • • • •

Permanesca tranquilo No revele su estado migratorio Pida hablar con su consulado más cercano Pida hablar con su abogado No firme ningún documento Determine quién lo ha arrestado Solicite un intérprete si lo necesita No de información falsa No de documentos falsos Mantenga el silencio

El condado de Santa Clara respeta la seguridad de todos. En diciembre de 2016, la Supervisora Cindy Chávez y yo organizamos una audiencia pública sobre inmigración en la cual nuestra alguacil, Laurie Smith, reafirmó su compromiso de defender la póliza del condado sobre detención civil en el cual el condado no coordina con los agentes de inmigración. En la misma audiencia , el jefe del departamento de la policía de la ciudad de San Jose, Eddie García, proclamó que su departamento y sus oficiales no cooperarán o actuarán como agentes de inmigración. A raíz de la orden ejecutiva del Presidente Trump del 25 de enero de 2017, también he reafirmado mi compromiso de asegurar que nuestras fuerzas del orden no sean empleadas como agentes de inmigración. Recientemente, mis colegas de la mesa directiva del condado y yo autorizamos a nuestro abogado del condado que presente una demanda en un tribunal federal que impugnara la orden ejecutiva de Trump sobre inmigración. La orden ejecutiva busca a castigar a ciudades y condados como el nuestro por no asistir a la deportación de nuestros residentes inmigrantes. La orden ejecutiva también amenaza a nuestro condado con suspender todos los fondos federales. Aunque el resultado de la demanda aún no se ha determinado, estoy seguro de que vamos a prevalecer.

Cómo actuar en caso de detención migratoria 1. Elabora un plan de emergencia: Cuida de tu familia especialmente de las y los menores, si nacieron en EUA, acude a tu Consulado más cercano para registrarlos como mexicanos.

2. Investiga qué documentos debes llevar siempre a la mano y mantén una copia de toda tu documentación en un lugar seguro.

Para mayor información acércate a tu Consulado de México más cercano o llama al CIAM.

3. Si requieres orientación migratoria, acércate a tu Consulado, te brindarán información sobre abogados confiables de migración.

Recuerda que una orden administrativa del ICE (forma I-200, I-205) no les da autorización para entrar a tu casa sin autorización.

4. Conoce tus derechos en tu casa, lugar de trabajo o en la calle.

6. Si las autoridades te detienen: -Guarda silencio. -No reveles tu situación migratoria. -Pide hablar con tu Consulado de México más cercano. -Comunícate con tu abogado. -No firmes nada. -Averigua quién te arrestó. -Solicita un intérprete y derecho a fianza. -No mientas. -No entregues documentos falsos.

Si las autoridades llegan a tu casa:

5. Si las autoridades entran a tu casa sin una orden de arresto y/o registro: -De manera muy cortés, pide nombres y números de placas y díles que “no das tu consentimiento” para realizar el registro.

-No abras la puerta. -Mantén la calma. -No huyas. -No reveles tu situación migratoria. -Pregunta para qué están ahí y solicita un intérprete en caso de necesitarlo. -Pide la orden judicial de arresto y/o registro, si la tienen pide que la muestren por la ventana y revisa que tenga tu nombre, dirección y la firma del juez. -Si no tienen una orden judicial puedes negarte a dejarlos entrar.

Declaraciones de Pelosi sobre los planes de deportaciones masivas del Presidente Trump San Francisco – La Líder Demócrata de la Cámara de Representantes Nancy Pelosi hizo esta semana las siguientes declaraciones sobre los memorandos del Departamento de Seguridad Nacional subrayando la implementación de las leyes migratorias bajo la Administración de Trump que llaman por las deportaciones masivas y que disminuyen el proceso debido.   “Separando a familias y forzando a padres fuera de sus hogares no mejora el país y no nos hace más seguros. Estos memorandos explican los crueles planes para poner en marcha las deportaciones masivas. Los memorandos aterrorizan comunidades, evitan las cortes migratorias al acelerar deportaciones en el país entero, desmantelan el proceso debido, y hacen el proceso de reportar crimen a la policía más difícil para las victimas indocumentadas y los testigos.   “La expulsión de criminales violentos es una prioridad importante para la seguridad de nuestras comunidades – pero ordenando a ICE a que deporte cualquier

inmigrante que encuentren no impedirá el crimen sino lo incrementará. Con su nueva oficina de ‘VOICE’, la Administración de Trump está destruyendo los derechos de las víctimas de violencia domestica protegidas por la ley VAWA al brindándole una herramienta poderosa a aquellos que abusarían y explotarían a mujeres y niños indocumentados. También nos preguntamos si estos memos preparan el camino para la deportación de los DREAMers. (Nota del editor: desde el miercoles 22 de febrero, la administración del Presidente Trump dice que no afectara los DREAMers directamente. Sin embargo, nada ha sido formalmente asegurado.) “Este país no se puede convertir en una máquina de deportación. Nosotros los Demócratas seguiremos luchando por la reforma migratoria integral y permaneceremos firmes al proteger a familias trabajadoras inmigrantes. Responsabilizaremos a esta Administración por sus políticas de inmigración crueles”.

Electores quieren respuestas sobre Atención a la Salud STUDY: LEGALIZING GAY MARRIAGE BRINGS Eric Tegethoff/Alfonso López-Collada Public News Service

OTHELL O, Wash. – L os miembros del Congreso regresan a sus distritos durante un receso legislativo y la gente de todo el país está pidiéndole a sus representantes que tengan encuentros públicos para discutir el futuro de los cuidados de la salud. Sólo unos cuantos legisladores del estado han programado asambleas públicas para informar a sus electores sobre la posible revocación de la Ley de Cuidado Asequible (“Affordable Care Act”, ACA), que cubre a 775 mil personas en el estado. Berta Alvarado, residente de Othello que viajó a Washington D.C. para hablar del Obamacare con el Congreso, tiene cobertura por esta ley y dice que su tía, quien enfrenta una condición médica seria, también se ha beneficiado enormemente del Obamacare. Alvarado agrega que está decidida a hacer que los representantes escuchen su voz sobre este problema. “Siento que más gente debería participar en el sistema político, involucrarnos en las causas en las que creamos firmemente.” Durante el último mes muchedumbres interrumpieron sesiones de cabildo en todo el país pidiendo a los representantes que aclaren qué sustituirá a la ACA. La semana pasada, los lí-

deres republicanos de la Casa Blanca ofrecieron un boceto de la legislación sustituta, pero al plan aún le faltan especificaciones. Alvarado sintió una necesidad tan fuerte de proteger su cobertura de salud, que viajó a Washington D.C. el mes pasado. Junto con un grupo de clérigos, cuidadores, personas con discapacidades y otras de todo el país, intentaron hablar con miembros del Congreso sobre la ACA y su posible remplazo. Pero los legisladores se negaron y, en vez de eso, el grupo fue arrestado luego de que se sentó frente a la oficina del Senador Orrin Hatch.

Mark Richardson Public News Service

directly link the two events, it suggests additional studies to see if the trend continues.

New research says state laws legalizing same-sex marriage have brought a reduction in suicide attempts among high-school students. The study particularly notes a decline in suicides among gay, lesbian and bisexual teenagers in those states, prior to the 2015 Supreme Court ruling upholding gay marriage.

Smith says gay teens are often stigmatized or bullied because of their sexuality, and that laws granting them civil rights can make them more hopeful for the future, and less inclined to harm themselves.

“Esperábamos que incluso al estar nosotros ahí de buena manera y todo, ellos podrían, ya sabes, escuchar nuestras historias. Y siento que nada más no quisieron reunirse con nosotros.”

Advocates for the Texas LGBT community are hoping that trend will continue. Chuck Smith, CEO of Equality Texas, says laws granting civil rights can have a profound effect on a person's self-image.

Ninguno de los congresistas republicanos del estado de Washington, y apenas unos cuantos demócratas, programaron reuniones con ciudadanos durante su largo receso de una semana. Alvarado siente que, cuando se trata de la atención a la salud, ella y muchos otros washingtonianos corren un riesgo grande porque se trata de un tema partidista. “Deberían atender más a lo que beneficia a los ciudadanos que no pueden pagar los cuidados médicos. Deberían tener una mente más abierta hacia lo que beneficia más a la gente y no verlo como algo político.”

"The larger takeaway is, this is a study that can begin to make a connection between policies or laws that either affirm or stigmatize people and their psychological and physical health," he said. The study from Johns Hopkins University found in an average year, three in 10 gay teenagers attempt suicide, six times the rate for straight teens. But in states where gay marriage was legalized, there was a 14-percent drop in suicide attempts by gay teens. The authors say while the study doesn't

"If laws and policies are enacted that are affirming of lesbian and gay people's sexual identity, that actually can have an effect of reducing the triggers that could negatively impact mental and physical health," he explained. He says recent events in Texas confirm that acceptance, by the legal system and society, is critical to people who are gay. " We s aw in Hous ton af ter their nondiscrimination ordinance was repealed, there was an increase in calls to suicideprevention lines," he added. The research, published in the journal JAMA Pediatrics, reviewed published data about more than 750,000 adolescents from 47 states, with 231,000 identifying themselves as gay. The researchers did not study transgender students.

LE INVITA A USTED Y UN ACOMPAÑANTE AL PREESTRENO DE

con el circo y bueno mande currículo, un video. Aplique y lo conseguí. Y si me metía en una compañía diferente Disney fue la mejor opción, tuve suerte, o'bueno tuve mucho trabajo, y aquí estoy con ‘Worlds of Enchantment’.

¡EL 28 DE FEBRERO EN SAN JOSE!

¿Que haces en tu papel con Disney, y como es la preparación?

Arturo Hilario El Observador Jorge Felez creció en Madrid, España, con ganas de patinar. Cuando abrió una pista de hielo cerca a su hogar el y sus hermanos fueron cautivados con la idea de deslizarse a través del hielo. Aquí habla con El Observador sobre sus experiencias con su carera, ademas de su trabajo actual con Disney. ¿Como es que empezaste el interés en el patinaje? Yo empecé a patinar a las seis anos, ahora tengo 27, o sea todavía estoy con los patines en los pies. Empecé a patinar porque abrieron una pista de hielo a cinco minutos de mi casa, y yo con mis hermanos nos apuntamos a clases. Hice bien, estuve compitiendo hasta los 15 años mas o menos. Y después de eso lo deje, porque la competición es andar todo los días entrenando, y fue un momento en donde decidí parar. Y luego lo retome como entrenador cuando estaba en la universidad como un trabajo en la misma pista donde fui a patinar. Fui yo el entrenador. Estuve allí unos cinco años como entrenador y después de eso me llamaron para hacer un espectáculo por España.   ¿Fue una cosa difícil o fácil empezar a trabajar en estos espectáculos? Que experiencia tuviste con eso? Bueno patinaje artístico en España es un deporte minoritario es muy poco popular aunque ahora mismo el doblemente campeón del mundo y cinco veces campeón de Europa es español, un compañero mío. Es una excepción. Nadie en España se imagina que se puede vivir del patinaje es como muy extraño. Yo cuando era pequeño no me imaginaba que me iba estar dedicándome al mundo del espectáculo como patinador. En el mundo del espectáculo somos muy pocos chicos patinadores en España, entonces siempre hace falta. ¿Como ha sido trabajar con el espectáculo de Disney? Antes de venir estaba en un circo y la compañía con la que estaba trabajando me dijo, ‘deberías de intentar con Disney’, por mi manera de patinar y actuar, y me empujaron, también mi familia. Justo Disney estaba en la misma ciudad con la que yo estaba actuando

Yo soy parte del choro digamos, tenga varios papeles, hago el pre-show que trasladamos todo el talento que tenemos backstage. Los llevamos al hielo, hacemos unos cuantos pasos de baile para que entren a la escena, y se preparen para el show. Luego también estoy en la sección de ‘La Sirenita’ y en ‘Frozen’. Para prepararme para los personajes al principio de la temporada tenemos dos semanas de ensayos con nuestro director, preparamos bailes, todos la coreografía entonces tenemos clases de forma y como conectar a tu personaje, es un proceso que durante todo el año vamos preparando.

Tienes algo favorito del show? Un aspecto o elemento que te salta? Hay muchos de hecho, pero el pre-show que es la primera escena de toda la obra, es bastante energética porque entramos 7 patinadores, a levantar a todo el público para que se pongan a bailar. Es super energético y hacemos un mensaje de vivir saludable, hacer ejercicio, los ves a todos los niños haciendo los mismos pasos que tu y es un momento muy especial. Por supuesto también el final con “Frozen”, que salimos los patinadores a hacer la coreografía de la música de “Frozen” que es muy popular. Y esos momentos, son los 'highlights' que tenemos en la obra. Que puedes decirle a la gente sobre Disney On Ice Presents Worlds of Enchantment. Porque seria una buena experiencia? Bueno vamos a ver [personajes de] las películas, “Toy Story 3”, “La Sirenita”, “Cars” y “Frozen”. Pero por supuesto van a estar también Mickey Mouse y Minnie Mouse, el Pato Donald, Goofy, quien es el maestro de ceremonias. Lo que trae este año espectacular son los coches de “Cars” que es la única producción en el mundo que tiene los coches de esa película. Van a estar en el hielo, haciendo derrapes, piruetas y es bastante espectacular ver como los coches se mueven por el hielo. Si quieren disfrutar del espectáculo y la magia de Disney que vengan a ver “ Disney on Ice Worlds of Enchantment” estaremos en San Jose del 22 al 26 de Febrero. Y también vamos a ir a Oakland el 1-5 de Marzo.

ATENCIÓN “VENUS ESTARÁ RETRÓGRADO” Mario Jiménez Castillo EL OBSERVADOR El término retrógrado literalmente se refiere al movimiento a la inversa de los planetas por un período específico. La retrogradación planetaria excluye al Sol y a la Luna. Este movimiento a la inversa no sucede, lo que ocurre es que durante periodos determinados de tiempo los planetas transitan en su órbita alrededor del Sol en un ciclo más lento. Venus entra en retrogradación cada dieciocho meses, durante este ciclo las relaciones amorosas, de amistad y comerciales atraviesan por un periodo de tensión, los negocios no presentan ganancias, el romance y la pasión de las parejas tiende a debilitarse, los matrimonios sufren altibajos, la gente se siente insegura en sus empleos y suelen suceder muchos retrasos con el dinero. Durante el transcurso en el que Venus entra retrógrado, es el momento menos indicado para realizarse cirugías estéticas, tratamientos dentales y cualquier tipo de tratamientos de belleza extremos ya que se corre el riesgo que el resultado no sea satisfactorio en absoluto. El planeta Venus estará retrógrado del día 4 de marzo al día 15 de abril. Venus rige el amor, el dinero, la belleza, la estética, la apariencia física, los placeres, el romance y la juventud. Lamentablemente, este aspecto planetario puede provocar enemistades, divorcios repentinos, hechos violentos, terrorismo y terremotos.

¿Qué le depara a cada signo?

Aries

Venus estará retrógrado en tu signo del día 4 de marzo al día 2 de abril. Tienes que andar con mucha cautela, no tomes decisiones precipitadas y vigila tu salud, tendrás que tener mucha paciencia al trasar gente insesata e insoportable. Procura llevar una dieta saludable.

Tauro

Venus es tu planeta regente, es probable que recientas algunos altibajos de salud y que los planes que tienes para el mes de marzo, sufran algún tipo de retraso. Si tienes trámites pendientes o asuntos con documentos procura llevarlos a cabo del día 15 de abril en adelante.

Libra

Venus es tu planeta regente y estará retrógrado en tu casa séptima que rige el amor y todo tipo de relaciones tanto amorosas, de amistad y laborales. Ten paciencia con tu pareja, pues pueden llegar a existir conflictos que pudieran distanciarlos. ¡ A mal tiempo, buena cara!

not getting paid to do it. They won’t profit from it. To effect digital transformation, you must fiscally govern for it. 5. Culture You must create a culture of innovation where continuous improvement and adaptation to change are constant. While it is difficult to transform a culture of “Always be closing” or “Make your numbers or else,” if you want to digitally transform your organization, you are going to have to do whatever it takes to assemble your orchestra in an environment where the musicians play music, not just notes. 6. Test, Fail, Learn

DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION IN 7 BRAIN-BUSTING STEPS Shelly Palmer The phrase “digital transformation” is so overused that it may be on the brink of its own transformation from a business imperative to a hackneyed refrain. Clichés aside, digital transformation is a business imperative and time is the enemy. So, let’s have a look at seven brain-busting steps that will enable you to create value in your organization through digital transformation. 1. Awareness Digital transformation requires two kinds of awareness: self-awareness and organizational awareness. Self-awareness: You must honestly evaluate your personal capabilities. How much did you love or hate math in high school? How much attention did you pay in statistics class in college? Are you a technophobe or a technocrat? Are you excited about learning every day or are you dreading it? These are just a few of the kinds of questions you must honestly answer before you participate in the digital transformation of your world. You must evaluate your colleagues, subordinates and superiors as well. If you’re not with the right people, it’s exhausting – and that’s putting it mildly. Organizational awareness: Is it possible for you to digitally transform your group, your unit or ultimately your entire organization? There are several obstacles to digital transformation, and the biggest ones are people-centric such as, a superior who doesn’t believe in digital, or individuals with an entrenched “digital is for kids” belief system, or a “that’s not the way we do

it here” mindset. 2. Literacy (not fluency) You need to be digitally literate. This includes data literacy, coding literacy, machine-learning literacy, math literacy, and question/answering (QA) literacy to name a few. You need not be fluent. As posited in, Data Literacy Will Make You Invincible, “You don’t need to speak French to recognize that the email you just received is written in French. You just need to be literate to the point where you know that Google Translate is not going to get the job done and you need a highly skilled French translator to help you interpret and respond to the communication.” 3. Strategy Successful digital transformation starts with a solid, well-thought-out strategy that clearly identifies your business objectives. You are going to accomplish _____. Whether it’s cost cutting or media optimization or product design or customer service, have a strategy that identifies a 21st-century problem and proposes a 21stcentury solution.

Failure is not an option; it is a probability. Part of a successful culture of innovation is an iterative process for testing, failing, learning, reworking, and repeating the process. This is far easier to say than to do. It is especially difficult when an “intrepreneur” has sold in a vision, built a business plan and created a roadmap and then is forced to follow the road, not the map. This is where leadership outplays management. In a true culture of innovation, a leader leads the team in the new direction and leads senior management through the change in plans. Managers, who are destined to fail, try to manage expectations while the team does what it can to serve multiple gods. This situation happens so often it should have its own name. 7. Build a Yellow Brick Road Digital transformation requires all kinds of partnerships. Some will be with old partners, some will be with frenemies, some will be with organizations you could never imagine being partners with. No matter what you call the new form of your digitally transformed organization, it will be based on an extensible platform strategy, and it will empower partners to add value in myriad ways you would never have thought of, or could ever have had time or resources to create. To facilitate this part of your digital

transformation, you will need to build a Yellow Brick Road that leads directly to your door. For example, the Yellow Brick Road for higher education leads to Harvard. The Yellow Brick Road for technology leads to Silicon Valley. Movies … Hollywood. Advertising … Madison Avenue. Finance … Wall Street. Build a Yellow Brick Road to your organization and the world’s best and brightest will follow it straight to you. Adapt or Die! You can take your time, but understand that today you are experiencing the slowest rate of technological change you will ever experience for the rest of your life. You really don’t have time to wait. Digital transformation will not get cheaper to do and it will not get faster to do. This is the part where you push back and say, “Technology gets faster and cheaper and is doing so at an accelerating rate – that’s why we have to digitally transform. We can wait until we are ready or until we are forced to do it.” While everything in the preceding quote is true, the inherent problem is that it will not only be true for you, it will be true for all of your competitors and every startup that’s gunning for a piece of your world. By then, it will be too late. Remember your Darwin: “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.” In other words, adapt or die!

4. Governance Misalignment of incentives and outcomes is the number one killer of dreams. There is no way that any of your current employees are going to give you an extra minute of their time at the expense of delivering the outcomes they are incentivized (fiscally governed) to deliver. If you’re expecting a unit to make its revenue numbers for the quarter, it should not surprise you to learn that no one in the unit will even do the prereading about the new new thing. They’re
