Q&A With Becky G

OPINION

Hilbert Morales El OBSERVADOR America needs to begin to understand that President Trump uses distractions, diversions, deceptions, and falsehoods to achieve his personal goals and establish a personal sense that he is the winner in every undertaking. Trump uses a bait and switch strategy to position his supporters, especially those who identify with his white supremacist beliefs. Unfortunately, his privileged life journey has not exposed him to the many struggles and challenges which ordinary Americans are experiencing. Trump has no intent to become the President who 'makes the best deal' which enables the greatest good for the middle class, elderly, needy, and disabled. Two items underscore this conclusion: 1) TrumpCare proposal which replaces 2010 Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) does much for the health care insurance industry while insuring fewer folks at a higher cost. The uninsured will increase to 26 million individuals. 2) Trump's proposed budget adds $54 billion to the Pentagon military budget while reducing allocations for

DISTRACTIONS, DIVERSIONS, FALSEHOODS education, state department judicial department, housing & urban development, health & human services, infrastructural needs, and THAT WALL. I have learned to listen to what Trump says while taking note of what he does. Nothing is being done about jobs and domestic needs. Trump is focused on 'security', while not taking actions that would improve the well-being of the working class which, according to a recent study reported in Atlantic magazine, reports that many families could not come up with $400 cash to deal with an emergency. The major problem Americans have to accept and deal with is the total lack of credibility in this Trump Administration. I will not dwell upon all those insults, demeaning statements, and 'alternative facts' (lies) which Trump as a pathological liar has created. I cannot comprehend why this billionaire has a total disregard for truth, facts, and reality. I credit him with one achievement: singlehandedly, Trump has diminished the global leadership and good will of America as a nation. Why should anyone TRUST him? His lack of integrity and knowledge will continue to damage this nation while he and his cronies make self-serving deals which enrich them. It is entirely appropriate for the FBI and Justice Department to continue to investigate and factually establish the recent Trump campaign's relationships and

actions which have benefitted Russia (Vladimir Putin). The flow of money; the theft and directed use of information stolen from the Democratic National Committee, the unwillingness to be transparent regarding his IRS submittals along with his associations, past and present, all need to become known and understood because Trump is not dealing with American citizens (We, The People) honestly and with integrity. Unfortunately, there is no transparency in this Trump Administration. Why should ordinary Americans place any faith and trust in this Trump Administration, including its selfserving cronyism, and nepotism? Fortunately, Americans know that their governance is based upon the U.S. Constitution and the body of law, coupled with regulations, and traditional administrative practices which result in civil order. The established checks and balances are working. And will work much better if the U.S. Congress begins to 'do its job' by dropping its extreme partisanship in order to enable meaningful deliberation and legislative actions. The influence of DARK MONEY must be mitigated; The Citizen's United Supreme Court ruling must be reversed; Only natural Citizens must remain with the privilege of supporting political activities; and a commitment to 'societal stewardship' must become evident. The natural wealth of this nation needs to be used to support a civil society

which is multi-cultural, diverse, and inclusive. The wealth of this nation must be used to provide for all its residents rather than stashed in individually owned silos. I have come to realize that the most important development today must be in America's economy. At present the distribution of wealth is skewed towards the ultra-wealthy and influential. The Trump Administration's focus on national security and immigrant deportations must become aligned to the economic needs of this nation. Trump and his ilk practice exploitation to an extreme which becomes the base for much human pain and suffering. This need not happen because while it may be appropriate to deport the criminal element; it is economically destructive to deport those undocumented whose only 'crime' is to have no legal status in America; who came here to improve themselves and their families' life style; to have access to opportunity through education and achievement. Much of what the Trump Administration is proposing will not make America great again. America is already great and will remain great when it begins to care for its own population first, and the international issues thereafter. Did Trump 'steal' the presidential election through treasonous collusion with Russia's oligarchical

leaders? Does the next Supreme Court Justice become appointed for life to a vacant Supreme Court seat 'stolen' by Republican refusal to do its job during 2016? These are the constitutional crisis situations created by extreme partisanship enabled by DARK MONEY. This American Democracy and its residents must know the facts and truth so that appropriate action may be taken by legally elected American officials. At this juncture, only an Independent Investigative Commission will ensure factual and truthful transparency. America must identify and deliver justice to all those who became treasonous traitors when using weaponized stolen information to allegedly stain the last Democratic leadership election. American sovereignty was attacked with external electronic messaging originating beyond its borders This is an act of ideological warfare more invidious and insidious than the terrorism which distracts us all. These self-serving forces of evil exist and must be addressed immediately. 'We, The People' must be committed to earning the personal choices made freely using our current Democratic ideals which are the envy of the world. We must not let Trump and his oligarchy inclined cronies prevail. Distraction, diversion, deception, and falsehoods do not stand up to the light of truth, facts, and evidence based decision-making which we all understand and support in solidarity with our democratic freedoms.

UNA MOVILIZACIÓN OPORTUNA José López Zamorano La Red Hispana Organizaciones comunitarias, grupos sindicales, denominaciones religiosas y ciudadanos solidarios planean realizar una senda movilización nacional el Primero de Mayo, una fecha que internacionalmente conmemora el Día Internacional del Trabajo, para demandar el fin de los planes para realizar deportaciones masivas y construir un muro fronterizo. En Washington, DC, el epicentro de la política nacional, los organizadores planean el cierre de negocios y marchar hasta las puertas de la Casa Blanca, para alertar sobre el sufrimiento que causan las nuevas directrices de política migratoria y los planes futuros para la detención y deportación de familias indocumentadas.

Apenas la semana pasada el presidente Donald Trump pidió al Congreso un presupuesto que destina recursos inéditos para la construcción de un muro en la frontera con México, la contratación de miles de agentes del Oficina de Inmigración y Aduanas (ICE), la ampliación de espacios de detención y la facilitación de deportaciones. Para compensar los ingresos adicionales destinados a la seguridad fronteriza y el cumplimiento de leyes migratorias, la petición presupuestal elimina programas domésticos de apoyo a los más vulnerables, así como la ayuda al exterior y a la respuesta federal ante desastres naturales. Aunque los demócratas externaron su rechazo a la idea de aprobar tales recursos, el incremento sin precedentes de fondos contra migrantes,

se origina en una lógica política equivocada de que los inmigrantes son fuentes de crimen y amenazas a la seguridad nacional y comunitaria. Un nuevo estudio de The Sentecing Project, que recopiló décadas de investigaciones sobre migración y criminalidad, confirma lo que ya sabíamos: que los inmigrantes cometen menos delitos que los nacidos en Estados Unidos y que crear una política de persecución mermará la seguridad nacional porque estarán menos dispuestos a confiar en las autoridades policiales. Por ello los grupos participantes en la movilización del Primero de Mayo, incluidos CASA Maryland, el local 32BJ del SEIU, el local 400 del UCF y CARECEN, entre otros, urgirán al Congreso a rechazar los recursos para más agentes del ICE y la Patrulla Fronteriza, más centros

de detención y la construcción del muro fronterizo. “Las fuerzas de deportación de la administración de Trump han aterrado a familias inmigrantes, dañado la economía de todas las personas trabajadoras y ha amenazado la seguridad de todas las comunidades”, señala la convocatoria. La tradición de resistencia contra políticas consideradas injustas por el pueblo es tan añeja como el nacimiento de este país. Llamar la atención sobre la crisis humanitaria que significa la separación familiar y privar a niños estadounidenses de sus padres indocumentados, representa un reclamo legítimo, necesario y oportuno.

ALPHA PUBLIC SCHOOLS’ TEACHER RESIDENCY PROGRAM DOUBLES IN SIZE

Now in its second year, mentor-based preparation program combats hiring challenges EAST SAN JOSÉ, Calif. – While most schools across California are struggling to find enough teachers, an Alpha Public Schools initiative to get more highly effective educators leading San José classrooms, Project 408, more than doubled in size. Now in its second year, Project 408, a new teacher residency program launched by Alpha, is currently serving 10 aspiring educators – nearly half the number of teachers the school network hires annually. Launched as a small pilot with four residents in 2015, Project 408 provides a supportive, handon mentoring and credentialing program for aspiring teachers. “Teachers are one of the most important factors in a student’s education. Locally, we are facing a shortage of talent and a lack of diversity in those entering the field. Through Project 408, Alpha is working to ensure students have an effective teacher while also increasing the diversity of those leading our classrooms,” Shara Hegde, chief schools officer at Alpha Public Schools.   Statewide, California is facing a teacher shortage coupled with near historic levels of low enrollment into teacher preparation programs. San Jose, like many urban communities across the country, also faces a diversity gap between teachers and the students whom they teach.    Alpha is committed to a diverse, quality team of educators. While 36 percent of California teachers are individuals of color, 48 percent of educators in all Alpha Public Schools identify that way. That number will increase through Project 408 as 91 percent of this year’s cohort identify as individuals of color.   “As a student, I lacked a cultural connection with my teachers. At Alpha, I’m constantly working to ensure students and their parents know that school is a place where their culture and language is valued,” said Rosalinda Rocha, a sixth grade teacher at Alpha: Blanca Alvarado Middle School who was part of Project 408’s first cohort. “My students have shown great commitment to their education. Their investment motivates me. Alpha’s investment in me, through Project 408, has prepared me to provide students with the skills and knowledge they will need to be successful in life.” 

Project 408 is designed to reduce barriers for those interested in pursuing a teaching career. Residents work toward their credential while earning a full-time salary and gaining in-the-field experience to best prepare them to effectively work with students. “At the core of our work, we want the best possible teachers in front of our students,” said Adriana Garcia, senior director of talent at Alpha Public Schools. “To do this, we make sure that money is not a barrier to entering the teaching profession. Then, we provide the relationships and tools needed to become an excellent teacher.”   Each resident is paired with an Alpha lead teacher through the two-year, practice-based credentialing program. In the first year, residents work full-time as an Alpha staff member, while attending classes one night per week through an intern credential program. Residents have clearly defined monthly milestones that lead to a two-week takeover in the spring, weekly observations and feedback meetings and monthly cohort meetings. Upon completion, Alpha may extend a formal offer to hire residents as fulltime teachers for the following school year. In year two, residents who become teachers of record will also complete their credential. Of the 2015-16 residents, 100 percent were hired and are currently employed at Alpha.   Project 408 is supported by generous grants from the Charles and Helen Schwab Foundation and the Sobrato Family Foundation.    About Alpha Public Schools: Alpha Public Schools is a network of four high-performing public charter schools founded by a group of East San José parents dedicated to helping transform their community. Alpha was founded with a vision of giving all East San José youth the opportunities that will allow them to choose a successful future. Alpha schools prepare and empower 1,600 K-10 students to be tomorrow’s leaders through a model that emphasizes personalized learning, computer science, and character development.

HOW TO TURN YOUR MICROWAVE INTO A CAMERA

Photo Credit: shellypalmer.com

Shelly Palmer

Professionals Have Countermeasures

You can turn a microwave into a camera and I’ll teach you how in a minute, but before I do, let me share this news item. In a recent interview with a reporter from the Bergen Record, Kellyanne Conway was asked about surveillance. She responded: “There are many ways to surveil each other now, unfortunately. There was an article this week that talked about how you can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television sets, any number of different ways. And microwaves that turn into cameras, et cetera. So we know that that is just a fact of modern life.”

If your personal or business dealings require enterprise-grade security and privacy, you can hide. Although, even professional surveillors have trouble keeping up with professional surveillees – and vice versa, because surveillors and surveillees are locked in an iterative, accelerating arms race that will never end. That said, if this is the “fact of modern life” Ms. Conway was referring to, she either misspoke or was just misinformed about microwave ovens. A Massive Gap in Understanding

On its face, her statement about “microwaves that turn into cameras, et cetera” is ridiculous. It reminds me of the late Sen. Ted Stevens’ famous “Tubes” speech. I went right after “Uncle Ted” for his techno–faux pas, but even then, there were bigger issues to consider. It would be exceptionally easy to jump all over Ms. Conway for her techno– faux pas. But doing so would be taking a cheap shot at an easy target while completely missing a very, very important teaching moment.

The bigger problem with Ms. Conway’s statement was that it clearly illustrated that she has no idea what is, or is not, technologically possible. A blanket statement about digital surveillance may fulfill her communications mandate, but it raises a serious question: Does she (or do the people who crafted her message) know enough about the technology she’s attempting to describe to hold informed, rational policy discussions about it? And without this understanding, is it possible to lead the world into the 21st century?

You Cannot Hide

Lifelong Learning

First and foremost, if you are a normal person who does not have a professional security team ensuring your privacy, and you are targeted, you cannot hide. There are countless legal and illegal ways to watch you (assuming you’re interesting enough to be watched), and you will not know you are being watched until someone makes use of the surveilled material. Get over it. As Ms. Conway suggests, “that is just a fact of modern life.” If you’re wondering what these mysterious “countless ways” might be, type “surveillance” into Google and read through some of the 186 million results. This may have been her point. If it was, she was just fear-mongering. Very few people are interesting enough to be watched.

Policy is already years behind technology, and it’s falling farther behind every day. Our elected officials need to have either a deep understanding of technological capabilities that are just over the horizon or the ability to enlist (and listen to) world-class tech advisors or, preferably, both. Sadly, this requirement for future-preparedness is not in evidence.

device, and all of these devices (an estimated 50 billion of them) will be connected to some kind of network. Data security is already a formidable problem, and it will be an even bigger problem moving forward. But device security is also going to command our attention. There are almost no ubiquitously agreed-upon security standards for IoT devices. Just how many unregulated transceivers with central processing units do you want in your home? Is the hard-coded, unchangeable password to that network-connected, budget indoor/ outdoor thermometer “1234?” If so, welcome to hacker heaven. Could an inexpensive device like this be used by hackers to commit a massive DDoS attack? In October 2016, that’s exactly what happened. Will someone hack your devices to do something even worse? Time will tell, but Kellyanne Conway could have used her moment in the spotlight to ask real questions about IoT. BTW, earlier this week, Maureen Ohlhausen, acting head of the Federal Trade Commission, said the “Internet of Things should self-regulate.” ’Nuff said. Turning Your Microwave into a Camera As promised, here’s how to turn your microwave (oven), which is what I think Ms. Conway meant, into a camera. Take a smartphone and connect it to your local area network (WiFi). Download any time-lapse photography app you like. Now, duct tape the smartphone to your microwave. Do your best to camouflage it and hide the charging cord. Walk away saying something like, “Nothing to see here, folks” to divert the attention of the curiosity seekers. Your microwave has now been turned into a camera. Of course, it will still work as a microwave – that’s what’s so great about this! Who in their right mind would ever think a microwave could be turned into a camera? Disclaimer All kidding aside, there is no way to take a microwave oven and use it “as is” as a

TECHNOLOGY

surveillance tool. Microwave ovens are shielded, not typically network-connected, and they do not possess the proper component parts for image-making. Even the transducer that makes the beep is not really suited for use as a microphone. Importantly, this is not true of other devices Ms. Conway mentioned. A professional can install software in a smart television (which typically features a microphone for voice recognition and a camera for gesture control) for surveillance use. In practice, anything with a transducer (microphone or speaker) in your home that is networkconnected is a relatively easy target for espionage. But – and this is a big but – in almost every case, someone would need to break into your home to do the required modifications. This is not true with respect to turning your smart phones or some other types of smart devices against you. That can be done remotely. Lastly, none of these surveillance techniques are easy to accomplish, and all of them require a warrant from a court of competent jurisdiction. But the rules only apply to governments and law enforcement. Criminals (hackers and other bad guys) don’t tend to follow rules or regulations. That’s what makes them criminals. So, without promoting fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) and without espousing conspiracy theories, let me leave you with one thought. It’s the Wild West, it’s getting wilder by the day, and there ain’t no sheriff.

ENTERTAINMENT

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com yeah, It’s for the Yellow Power Ranger, to play Trini’, and I was like, ‘..what?’. I totally freaked out. How would you describe your version of Trini the Yellow Ranger? I think Trini is pretty simple, she is the kind of person who doesn’t like to admit that she needs anyone, she’s very independent, very self-made and kind of a loner, and she just kind of rocks it. I think when you first meet her you kind of think, ‘man, does this girl just hate everyone?’, because it kind of seems like it but as time goes by I think you see that vulnerability that she does have, and that she’s just dealing with some self-identity issues and figuring out who she is, what’s she’s into and where she belongs. I think as a teenager that’s one thing I remember going through, and in middle school and elementary; where do I fit in? There’s all these different social groups and they tell you that you have to fit in one of them but I don’t fit in any of them and I think Trini’s like, ‘well you know what, whatever, I’m just going to keep on by myself ’.

GETTING TO KNOW THE YELLOW RANGER A Q&A with Becky G Arturo Hilario El Observador In “Power Rangers”, the reboot based on the 1993 children's tv show and hit franchise it spawned, singer (and now film actress) Becky G portrays the Yellow Ranger Trini. The film follows many of the beats of the original story of teenagers who acquire superpowers and mechs (Zords) to save the earth from aliens, but also adds a definite edginess and updates the humor and turmoil. Recently I got to speak with Becky on her experience moving from music to movies, her first Power Ranger memories, as well as why you can bring practically anyone to watch this new iteration of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. What was your first exposure to the Power Rangers franchise? Well I was introduced a little bit later than some of the OG fans. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers came out in 1993 and I wasn’t born yet, but when I watched the movie of course it made some kind of influence on me. The idea of being a superhero is the coolest thing ever and the Power Rangers, with all my primos, is something that we would play. And everyone wanted to be the red one, and all the girls wanted to be the

pink one. I always loved the color yellow, it was my favorite color, and that also kinda transferred over when I discovered Power Rangers, I always wanted to be the yellow power ranger. And so I guess I have this moment of like, ‘wow, okay, I’m living a childhood dream’, so it’s for sure a huge deal for me. It seems you were meant to play the Yellow Ranger. Although, did you initially get to choose which one you'd portray? Actually, it’s just like in the movie where the power coins choose us, our color chose us in real life as well. I was one of the last people to be cast in the movie and I went through the entire casting process without knowing the role, which actually made me more proud in the end, to get the opportunity to play Trini. I was on a tour and I got an email from my agent saying ‘I need you to take a self take and send it to me as soon as you can’. She sent over the lines, and the lines didn’t have anything to do with Power Rangers, nothing about Trini. So I was like, ‘this is interesting, I don’t know what this is for, I’m going to send it in anyways’ and so I did. And once I got the call back my agent was like, ‘they love you!’ and I was like, ‘who are you talking about?’. It was the people from Power Rangers, Lionsgate, and I freaked out. And [my agent] goes, ‘yeah,

So in the film, much like the original series, there's a diverse group of 'teenagers with attitude' that portray the Power Rangers. This time around there's actors from Asia, Australia, as well as other Americans of various ethnic backgrounds. Can you talk about the diversity in the casting and what it was like working with the group? It’s really an honor. I think the best thing about it was the context to not put ethnicity in the character breakdown. For instance when I got the character breakdown for Trini it didn’t say that Trini has to be Latina. As for Kimberly it didn’t say that Kimberly (Naomi Scott) was half-Indian, and it didn’t say Billy (RJ Cyler) had to be AfricanAmerican, it didn’t say that Jason (Dacre Montgomery) has to be Australian. It was like, 'we’re just gonna let people audition, if they can carry the role that’s all that matters'. And so, in this movie I think you will see that. Not only are we diverse ethnicity wise, but gender wise I think. It’s amazing that we get to have two female superheroes that work together. That you don’t see all the time. Not only that but they’re working with men and they’re not one without the other. The core ensemble needs to work together in order to be the best that they can be. And as far as it being diverse on social issues, as far as what these characters are dealing with, they’re dealing with bullying at school, cyberbullying, identity issues, learning disabilities. The spectrum is so wide, for how diverse this cast is, and how these characters are. So for me, especially as a Latina, it’s everything. It’s a message that I stand for and continue to represent. How was it working with all the CGI and physical action elements during filming? Having worked on set for your role on the tv show Empire in 2015, it must have been different moving to a movie like this. It’s very different, although Taraji (“Empire”

MARCH 24 - 30, 2017 lead actress Taraji P. Henson) put us to work in the episodes I did. Being part of a girl group is not easy. “Empire” was still kind of a comfort zone for me because it still had to do with music, the transition into the acting world, in filming a tv show, is very different than filming a movie. You have an ensemble of five different people with five different characters and they’re all in scenes together. You really have to be present and make decisions for your characters. You don’t want to just look like you’re standing there. And I think for me especially, because I don’t have a big acting background, really thought I needed to prove myself as an actor to the audience that would be watching this movie and I truly think they will see me as Trini and not Becky G which is something I am very proud of. On top of that the CGI, green screen, our director Dean (Dean Israelite) did very well in keeping us in the loop as far as what we were looking at and being specific when we were dealing with green screen, cuz it can get hard you know, You really do have to use your imagination and sometimes you feel like an idiot because you’re like, 'I’m talking to Alpha 5, but Alpha 5 isn’t here. What does Alpha 5 look like?!'. Dean was always showing us pictures and showing us videos and whatnot. For the most part actually, I want to say a big part of the movie we filmed, like 85%, was all real props, it was all real. The post production obviously enhances what we were working with but for the most part, the spaceship and everything, that was all built out for us to really work on and be able to take that energy and create the vibe that was real. Did you give your sabertooth tiger Zord a name? Sabertooth tiger.. I mean, I don’t think in this movie they have any names beyond what the Zord's are called, obviously I think mine is the best just like how everyone else thinks there’s is the best. I thought aesthetically mine was the coolest, the sabertooth tiger, because I love the color yellow and I love how it popped, but of course everyone’s is special in their own way. Finally, for fans of the old series, and those that are new to it, what will it be like watching this version of Power Rangers? I think what’s special about this movie is we somehow managed to cater to everyone. When I say little kids can go watch this movie, and connect to these characters just as much as their parents when they go watch this movie, it gives OG ranger fans a piece of their childhood, I think it will make them feel very nostalgic, and I think it’s also fun enough to take your abuelitos to go watch it. It’s a movie for everyone. It’s definitely a good, action-filled family movie with a lot of depth to the characters and also a lot of light-heartedness and funniness that kind of carries the script, so I think everyone can go watch this movie. Power Rangers is out now in theaters.

EL MURO DE LA VERGÜENZA

Los devastadores daños causados por el muro existente. Photo Credit:Sierra Club

Javier Sierra Sierra Club Durante los peores años de la Guerra Fría, el Muro de Berlín se ganó el sobrenombre de Muro de la Vergüenza. En 1963, el Presidente Kennedy, en un memorable discurso, dijo que, “El Muro es (…) una ofensa contra la humanidad que separa a familias, divide esposos de esposas, hermanos y hermanas, y a un pueblo que desea estar reunido”. Medio siglo más tarde, otro presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, en un memorable error histórico, pretende construir otro Muro de la Vergüenza a lo largo de las 1.900 millas de la frontera con México. Este despilfarro que costaría más de $20.000 millones pretende acabar con la inmigración indocumentada a Estados Unidos, pese a que la migración neta entre ambos países es cero. De hecho, el Pew Research Center indicó en 2015 que más mexicanos abandonaron Estados Unidos de los que vinieron. El Muro de la Vergüenza no solo es innecesario. Sería también un desastre ambiental, económico y humanitario. Y las 650 millas de muralla ya existente así lo demuestran. “Invocando la Ley REAL ID, la administración Bush anuló decenas de protecciones y salvaguardas para construir esos tramos del muro”, dice Dan Millis, un experto del Programa de Terrenos Fronterizos del Sierra Club. “La gente aquí vive en lugares donde la Ley de Aire Limpio y la de Agua Limpia no se aplican. Esto no es la protección igualitaria ante la ley según la Constitución”. El muro existente actúa como una represa que favorece las inundaciones, como las que sufrieron Nogales, México, y Nogales, Arizona, las cuales causaron muerte y destrucción a ambos lados de la frontera. “La eliminación de estas leyes realmente me asusta debido a lo que Trump podría hacer”, dice Millis. “El dice que es una persona que defiende la ley y el orden, pero puede bloquear la ley para hacerse el duro en televisión”. El daño económico del Muro también sería profundo. La persistente agresión verbal y política de Trump contra México —el muro,

las aterradoras redadas anti-inmigrante, los insultos contra la dignidad de todo un país— amenaza con que esto le salga el tiro por la culata. Unos seis millones de empleos en Estados Unidos dependen del comercio con México. Otra idea descabellada de Trump es imponer un arancel a las importaciones mexicanas para financiar la construcción del muro. A fin de cuentas quienes acabarían pagando serían los contribuyentes norteamericanos, incluyendo los votantes de Trump. Esos mismos votantes justifican la aterradora operación militar que Trump está realizando en todo el país contra inmigrantes casi exclusivamente hispanos, diciendo que estas personas están robando sus empleos. ¿De verdad? El Centro para el Desarrollo Global publicó un estudio en 2013 sobre este supuesto robo, incluyendo la oferta de 6.500 empleos agrícolas en Carolina del Norte. De ellos, 163 norteamericanos empleados se presentaron a trabajar bajo el duro sol. ¿Cuántos acabaron la temporada de cosecha? Siete (7). Y la industria agrícola de California, tras apoyar a Trump, teme ahora que sus productos se pudran en los campos por falta de mano de obra. La verdad es que los inmigrantes típicamente aceptan con entusiasmo empleos que a los trabajadores norteamericanos les repelen. Y la operación militar de Trump que lleva camino de intensificarse a niveles dictatoriales amenaza la misma seguridad económica del país. Según un estudio del Buró Nacional de Investigación Económica, deportar a todos los trabajadores indocumentados le costaría al país unos $3 billones (“trillions” en inglés) en diez años. La crisis migratoria no se resolverá convirtiendo a los indocumentados en chivos expiatorios. La solución ambiental, económica, y sobre todo moral, es adoptar una reforma migratoria con una vía a la ciudadanía para 11 millones de personas que sufren el castigo de los contaminadores y la ira xenofóbica de Trump. En juego está nuestra vergüenza nacional como país civilizado.

ADVOCATES PUSH FOR BIG FEDERAL INVESTMENT IN WATER INFRASTRUCTURE Suzanne Potter California News Service

that closing that infrastructure gap would create over 1.3 million jobs."

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - The U.S. is drastically underfunding water projects, putting communities at risk for a catastrophic failure, according to a new report from the U.S. Water Alliance.

The report notes that 40 years ago, 60 percent of the nation's water projects were funded by federal dollars. Now that figure is just 9 percent, with most of the money coming from local levies.

Advocates for better water infrastructure are flooding Washington, so to speak, for Water Week 2017.

Fox says she is optimistic that Congress will fund more water projects this year, as both parties have voiced support for a major infrastructure bill.

The report found that the U.S. is only funding one-third of water infrastructure needs. And the nation's drinking and wastewater system recently earned a D grade from the American Society of Civil Engineers. Radhika Fox, director of the U.S. Water Alliance, says the proper investment would be a boon to the economy. "If we were to close that investment gap, we would drive economic growth in this country," she states. "The report found

She notes that even though the Golden State has gotten some much-needed rain, conservation projects remain essential. "The investments that California is trying to make around re-use and having that broadly utilized across the state is really helping stretch our very limited water supply," she states. The U.S. has seen multiple major water disasters in recent years in Flint, Mich.; Toledo, Ohio; and in the Florida Everglades.

La Organización de “Latinos Marinos” toma el Capitolio de California

Una nueva generación de activistas latinos que defienden el medio ambiente, quieren tener un rol más activo en las políticas del medio ambiente.

necesita el acceso costero es entre otras, la hispana”. Esto a pesar de que el 2016 marcó el 40 aniversario del Coastal Act, una pieza histórica que tuvo gran respaldo en la legislatura californiana por la necesidad de proteger 1,100 millas de acceso costero. Jack Ainsworth, el nuevo jefe de la Comisión Costera de California dijo frente a la multitud de activistas que participaron en el Día del Océano que las amenazas no son solo el aumento del nivel del mar y la construcción desmedida, sino los recortes que la administración de Donald Trump tiene previstos para la Comisión. “La administración de Trump no comparte los valores de California y ha propuesto el equivalente a una reducción del 10 por ciento en el financiamiento para la comisión. Eso, dijo, dejaría a la agencia reguladora en un serio problema", dijo Ainsworth quien también hizo hincapié en que la participación pública era clave para luchar. Activismo político

Jenny Manrique Especial para El Observador La celebración del Día del Océano en California no ha tenido la cantidad de latinos presentes como en esta versión del 2017. Aunque comenzó formalmente en 2005 como una manera de llevar activistas a Sacramento para discutir asuntos del océano con los legisladores estatales, la voz de una de las comunidades más afectadas por los efectos de la industrialización, había estado muy desdibujada. “Hay algunas leyes en la agenda legislativa que queremos impulsar pero también contarle a los responsables políticos qué estamos haciendo con y por nuestra comunidad latina. Que podamos también servirles de recurso”, dijo desde el Capitolio de California, Marce Gutiérrez, fundadora de la ONG ambiental Azul y el cerebro detrás de esta movilización hispana que el pasado 14 de marzo alcanzó un número récord de más de 20 activistas que tuvieron más de 90 reuniones con legisladores. El grupo Latinos Marinos compuesto por representantes latinos de varias organizaciones que viajaron desde la costa norte y sur del estado, se paseó por todo el Capitolio para decirle a los legisladores por qué quieren hacer el océano más accesible para la comunidad latina y por qué aunque California ha hecho unos avances tremendos en energía limpia, las comunidades más afectadas por la

polución, la construcción de plantas industriales y el limitado acceso a la playa, son las minorías de bajos recursos, empezando por la hispana. “Ahora estamos pidiendo a los legisladores que apoyen el proyecto AB250 de la asambleísta Lorena González Fletcher, que busca establecer un programa de alojamiento costeable a lo largo de la playa para que las comunidades de bajos recursos puedan disfrutarla”, agrega Gutiérrez, quien a menudo se ha visto como la única persona de color en un movimiento de conservación predominantemente blanco. Pedro Nava, quien ejerció como asambleísta desde 2004 hasta 2010 y luego trabajó en la Comisión Costera en California, dijo que durante su paso por ese organismo vio como un permanente defecto “la ausencia de personas de color, latinos o minorías, que participen en el debate”. “La comunidad latina es la más impactada por asuntos como la calidad del aire y del agua y aún así hasta ahora no había sido capaz de articular sus posiciones en temas medio ambientales”, dijo Nava. “Eso está cambiando gracias al liderazgo de latinos en la Asamblea, en los negocios y en el esfuerzo reciente de Latinos Marinos”, agregó el activista para quien si la diversidad no es parte del debate, los programas costeros “perderán apoyo porque la población que desesperadamente

Aunque en la mayoría de las oficinas fueron recibidos por asistentes, los activistas tocaron la puerta de senadores como Ed Hernández, Kevin de León, Fernando Lara y asambleístas como Raúl Bocanegra, Jimmy Gómez y Miguel Santiago. Allí repitieron una y otra vez los testimonios de la gente de sus barrios latinos, afectada por las instalaciones de liberación tóxica (TRI), los rellenos sanitarios, la proximidad a los desechos peligrosos y la contaminación del aire. Felipe Escobar, 29 años, activista de Pacoima Beautiful una organización de justicia ambiental que opera en el condado predominantemente latino de Pacoima en Los Ángeles, contó cómo a veces jugando fútbol con sus amigos en la playa, algunos se han cortado los pies con vidrios que nadie recoge por la falta de mantenimiento en las zonas costeras a las que tienen acceso. “Ir a Malibú es muy lejos y Santa Mónica es muy sucia. Ya no podemos divertirnos porque esto lo hace peligroso” Y aunque este es un detalle anecdótico de lo que ha experimentado, su real preocupación es la polución del aire en Sun Valley debido al cierre del Aliso Canyon que proveía gas natural para la operación de la planta de energía en ese barrio, y que ahora debe utilizar diesel. “Pacoima tiene una de las tasas de asma más altas y está probado que la exposición al diesel en el largo plazo también causa demencia y alzheimer”, dijo Escobar repetidas veces frente a los legisladores. Les pidió que no apoyen la ley SB57 en el Senado que quiere poner un moratorium a la apertura del Canyon, lo que extendería el uso de diesel.

MARCH 24 - 30, 2017 Su compañero Diego Ortiz, 30 años, comentó también que Pacoima Beautiful viene realizando talleres en español en barrios de bajos ingresos para que la comunidad esté más involucrada en los procesos de toma de decisiones en temas como la calidad y el manejo del agua, dada la crisis de sequía en el Estado, y el acceso a espacios abiertos como las playas. “Todo esto hace parte de la calidad de vida y la salud. La costa y las playas significan mucho para nosotros”, dijo el joven que reitera siempre en su trabajo educativo el concepto de que la playa es pública así “hayan propietarios que creen falsos garajes o pinten la acera para impedirnos el acceso”. Hasta los activistas más jóvenes fueron a demostrar que las nuevas generaciones serán las férreas defensoras del medio ambiente. Elma del Aguila, 18 años, una líder juvenil de la Alianza Central Costal Unida por una Economía Sostenible (CAUSE por sus siglas en inglés) ubicada en el condado de Ventura, se opone a la construcción de una cuarta planta de electricidad en el barrio de Oxnard, una comunidad de unas 200,000 personas compuesta por un 85% de gente de color y 74% de latinos, que se ha visto afectada por las instalaciones industriales contaminantes y de pesticidas agrícolas. “Cada vez que las compañías de energía y las agencias estatales deciden que hay una necesidad de energía, ponen una planta de combustibles fósiles contaminantes en Oxnard. Nunca en playas de las comunidades ricas cercanas como Malibu o Montecito”, dijo del Águila, en referencia al Puente Power Project de NRG Energy, el mayor operador de centrales eléctricas en EEUU, cuya propuesta está en manos de la Comisión de Energía de California. Del Águila le pidió a los legisladores ejercer presión sobre la Comisión que decide en Mayo, pues aunque la mayoría de los organismos políticos como el ayuntamiento y el condado se oponen al proyecto, “la Comisión no ha considerado una sola alternativa de energía renovable limpia a la propuesta de la planta de energía de NRG… El hecho que de que somos una comunidad de inmigrantes de bajos recursos no quiere decir que no vamos a pelear. Nuestra gente se está enfermando de asma”. El tema de la contaminación del ambiente y sus graves consecuencias en la salud se repitió también en la historia de Oak View Comunidad, una ONG formada por Víctor Valladares y Oscar Rodríguez en el barrio del mismo nombre en Huntington Beach, cuya principal lucha ha sido contra la empresa Rainbow Environmental

“Organizamos a los residentes que no se atrevían a hablar de la contaminación porque habían recibido dinero de la empresa” aseguró Valladares. “Les enseñamos cómo comunicar sus quejas ante el South Coast Air Quality Management District, (la agencia de control de la contaminación del aire) porque ahí al lado de ese tiradero de dos hectáreas están nuestras escuelas y familias”.

Tras escuchar las propuestas, los responsables en las oficinas de los políticos tomaron nota, prometieron comunicarlas a los legisladores y les agradecieron su activismo frente a la escasa diversidad de voces latinas en la mesa de temas ambientales. Y sin embargo, también algunos les reconocieron que así como ellos, las empresas hacen fuerte lobby en el Capitolio y que si bien hay algunos asambleístas que tienen puesta la camiseta de la justicia ambiental, hay varios conflictos inherentes a la necesidad de producir energía o enfrentar la sequía en el Estado, que les hará seguir debatiendo para rato.

UNA CONVERSACIÓN SOBRE EL FUTURO ENERGÉTICO DE CALIFORNIA

Construyendo una mejor red eléctrica para una mejor California P O R G E I S H A W I L L I A M S , D I R E C T O R A E J E C U T I VA Y P R E S I D E N T E , P G & E C O R P O R AT I O N

¿QUÉ PENSARÍA USTED si alguien le dijera que existía una máquina que podía suministrar una cantidad ilimitada de energía limpia para todos, tomando al mismo tiempo nuevos suministros desde cualquier lugar? ¿Un dispositivo capaz de combinar los flujos de energía, constantemente cambiantes del Sol y el viento, y equilibrarlos con reservas almacenadas en baterías gigantes, vehículos eléctricos e incluso en el agua? Y uno que pudiera aprovechar todas las últimas innovaciones de alta tecnología para aquellas personas que las desean, suministrando al mismo tiempo electricidad confiable para quienes, simplemente, quieran que las luces funcionen al encender el interruptor y los tomacorrientes de pared ofrezcan energía, sin tener que pensar en ninguna de esas cosas. Gran parte de esa máquina ya existe, ahora mismo. Y PG&E trabaja arduamente para modernizarla y mejorarla aún más. La llamamos la red eléctrica. Ha sido una increíble obra de ingeniería desde los días de Thomas Edison. Durante más de un siglo, el concepto básico – transmitir energía de la planta de producción al consumidor, con la mayor rapidez y seguridad posible –se ha mantenido prácticamente igual–. Aquí en California, eso está cambiando. La red eléctrica se torna cada vez más inteligente y dinámica y permite la incursión de nuevos participantes en el sector de la energía. Eso está

La red de hoy se torna cada vez más inteligente y dinámica, y permite la incursión de nuevos participantes en el sector de la energía. teniendo un gran impacto en la forma en que energizamos nuestra vida moderna, además de ayudar al Estado a hacer realidad su visión de un futuro más limpio y sustentable. Actualmente, cerca de un tercio de la electricidad que PG&E suministra a sus clientes proviene de fuentes renovables, tales como la solar y eólica –con cuatro años de antelación al ambicioso programa de California–.

Mejor aún, al incluir todos nuestros recursos con bajo contenido de carbono o sin carbono, cerca del 70% de la electricidad de la red de PG&E ahora está libre de gases de efecto invernadero, lo que la convierte en una de las energías más limpias de toda la nación. Para nosotros, eso representa una señal de que el desafío de obtener energía limpia está entrando a una nueva fase –de escala y sistemas disponibles para todos–. La tecnología necesaria para impulsar una economía con bajas emisiones de carbono está cada vez más disponible, y es posible que las barreras que aún tenemos frente a nosotros, tal como el almacenamiento de energía eficiente en función de costos, también sean derribadas más rápido de lo esperado. La tarea ahora es vincular lo mejor de estas innovaciones con mercados que les permitan crecer, integrándolos al mismo tiempo, de manera que logren la creación de un valor exponencialmente mayor para el consumidor de energía – sin importar quién sea, en dónde viva, o lo que haga–. La red inteligente que estamos construyendo hoy en día, y que lo logrará funcionando de una manera similar al Internet – una plataforma que proporciona acceso universal a la energía limpia, creando al mismo tiempo nuevas opciones para los consumidores y extendiendo los beneficios que brinda una economía con bajos niveles de carbono, de la forma más amplia posible –. Pero para desarrollar plenamente ese potencial, compañías como PG&E necesitan seguir realizando inversiones significativas en la red. Y, a su vez, requiere de políticas que puedan mantener el ritmo de la evolución acelerada de la tecnología y las fuerzas del mercado, las cuales se encuentran en un constante y rápido crecimiento. A medida que nuestro enfoque cambia a una economía en la que la electricidad es producida y usada de una forma diferente, el costo de la red tendrá que ser recuperado a partir de medidas que puedan reflejar, con mayor precisión, los servicios que las compañías de energía como PG&E

suministran – mientras que al mismo tiempo recompensan a sus clientes por sus propias contribuciones para la obtención y consumo de energía limpia–. Los beneficios también deben ser de fácil acceso y asequibles para todos nuestros clientes, incluyendo pequeños negocios, familias y aquellas personas que requieran asistencia en el pago de sus facturas. Asegurar que el sistema funcione para todos es una de las responsabilidades claves de PG&E, y constituye una parte esencial de nuestra labor. También es parte de la razón por la que dicho trabajo es tan significativo. Desde los inicios de nuestra industria, cuando la red apenas se estaba inventado, nunca antes habíamos experimentado cambios tan acelerados, con consecuencias tan importantes. Y, al igual que en los tiempos de Edison, nuestro éxito en la construcción de un mejor sistema de energía promete tener un impacto realmente positivo en la vida de las personas –tanto para nuestra generación como para todas las generaciones por venir–.

A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for Petitioner: Patricia Uro-May, Esq.

San Jose Sharks / sjsharks.com SAN JOSE - San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) General Manager Doug Wilson announced last week that the club has signed unrestricted free agent center Tim Clifton (@ tim_clifton) to a two-year contract. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. Clifton also signed an AHL ATO for the remainder of the 2016-2017 season and will report to the San Jose Barracuda of the American Hockey League. "Tim is a skilled, feisty forward who excels in the face-off circle and we're excited he has chosen San Jose amongst the many suitors he had," said Wilson. "We feel our club has a strong track record of providing an environment where undrafted free agents can prosper and make an impact at the NHL level, and we are confident that Tim has the ability to follow that mold. We also want to thank and congratulate Quinnipiac Head Coach Rand Pecknold and his staff for their hard work that has helped Tim grow and succeed as a young hockey player."

Clifton, 24, recently completed his senior season with Quinnipiac (ECAC) where he served as an alternate captain. He finished as the team's fourth-leading scorer with 25 points (13 goals, 12 assists) in 39 games. His 13 goals and seven power-play goals tied for first on the team. Additionally, he won 58.2%

In 2015-16 as a junior, Clifton finished third on the team in scoring with 43 points (19 goals, 24 assists) in 39 games, including 10 power-play goals.

Clifton was named to the ECAC Second Team, honored as with Quinnipiac's Men's Ice Hockey Seventh Man of the Year and was a member of the ECAC All-Academic Team (also named in 2014 and 2015). In addition, Quinnipiac made their first trip to the NCAA National Championship, where Clifton became the school's first player to score a goal in the championship game. Clifton had more than 20 NHL offers to turn professional following his junior season but elected to remain at Quinnipiac, where he played with his younger brother, Connor, a 2013 draft selection by the Arizona Coyotes. In four collegiate seasons at with Quinnipiac, Clifton scored 95 points (44 goals, 51 assists) in 155 NCAA games. He received a degree in mechanical engineering.

In his long line of fantastic films, “Goodfellas”, “Taxi Driver”, “The Wolf of Wall Street”, Filmmaker Martin Scorsese has looked into the grit and marvelous within American life. His latest film, "Silence", is another excellent film to add to Scorsese’s legacy, but in this case it takes audiences into the world of religion and spirituality within the world of 17th century Feudal Japan. As aforementioned, taking place in the mid 17th century, the film follows Father Sebatiao Rodrigues and Father Francisco Garrpe, played by Andrew Garfield (Amazing Spiderman 1,2) and Adam Driver (Girls, Star Wars: The Force Awakens), as they are on a dangerous quest to find Father Cristovao, played by Liam Neeson (Taken 1,2,3) after they receive a letter stating the horrors that Christians and the priests who help them hear the word of god are suffering through in a land (Japan) where the practice of Christianity is punishable with torture and eventually, death. The movie does an excellent job of showing how event may have gone down in the 17th century after Christianity was outlawed by the Tokugawa shogunate, the last feudal Japanese military government between 1600 and 1868. It shows that those that practice Christianity and the priests who help them practice their

faith were made do either denounce their faith or be tortured and killed for it. The beauty of the Japanese countryside is counteracted by the conditions the Japanese Christians live in trying to hide from the prosecution of the Japanese government at the time, holding mass in basements in the dead of night. As the Blu-ray goes, the films 1080p transfer is excellent, with Scorsese's cinematography in wonderful detail. The specifications of the Bluray are as followed: 1080p high definition with English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, French 5.1 Dolby Digital, Spanish 5.1 Dolby Digital, and English Audio Description and English, English SDH, French, and Spanish subtitles. The Blu-ray combo features the digital HD version as well, allowing you, like many Blu-ray copies of today, to access a digital version of the film through UltraViolet platform. Additionally there is a interesting bonus feature entitled “Martin Scorsese’s Journey into Silence”, which adds depth and background to the already great film and it's inception, as well as Scorsese’s hunt over the years for this type of film. This movie is a great watch for anyone who like Scorsese’s films, steady and beautifully shot, and narrative-wise a fascinating study into the rarely heard of dangers that came with being a Christian in Feudal Japan.
