APRIL 6 - 12, 2018

PERSPECTIVES ON JUSTICE DENIED...SO FAR... court. A sage once stated that 'Justice delayed is justice denied'.

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR Another African American youth, Stephan Clark, age 22, was killed on March 18, 2018 in his grandmother's back yard by two Sacramento, CA police officers. Twenty rounds were fired; the family authorized its own independent autopsy which established that 8 rounds fired struck Stephan’s back. The two officers both reported that ‘they feared for their lives; were in harm’s way’ and fired 20 rounds at a Black youth who was ‘charging them’. Since the Michael Brown incident, August 9, 2014, in Ferguson, a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri similar incidents have happened. With the possession of smart IT devices which have photo, video and audio capability civilians have recorded what happened, on occasion, as it happened. These civilian photographed/video records of similar incidents were compared to the official incident reports submitted by the officers who wore body cameras and were involved in these use of force incidents...when compared, the reports submitted, and the videos/ photos/eyewitness reported, did not jibe. Controversy resulted in “BLACK LIVES MATTER” efforts to bring JUSTICE to these incidents. These are the incidents to which the community has reacted with demonstrations and demands for justice. The Police Internal Audit investigation is conducted by police staff; takes too long time; rarely is any officer tried in a public

There have been many statements by Police Chiefs, local leaders, state and national leaders, and elected officials. In the case of Stephan Clark, the Trump Administration stated that 'It is a local incident issue'. However, Reverend Al Sharpton, NYC activist leader, retorted, “This Stephan Clark incident was related to other similar police use of violence (firing their side arms) which ended up with too many dead Black youths nationwide. It is a national issue,” which has overtones of racism, white supremacy, bias, bigotry, and may have an 'unconscious pre-disposition' to act in haste followed by being apologetic and sorry later after a youth's life has been terminated. What does a community such as San Jose, CA and its police department need to do to ensure these officer-involved shooting incidents are properly assessed? What follows is what San Jose, CA accomplished which enabled it to become 'the safest city' despite having its police department staffing reduced from 1,500 sworn officers down to 750+ due to budget and pension plan renegotiation issues which have recently been resolved. Twenty-two years ago, in November, 1996, citizens of San Jose voted to place the Office of the Independent Police Auditor into its City Charter. While different models of civilian oversight (and monitoring) agencies had emerged with varying success since the 1920's, San Jose was the first auditor (& monitor) model in USA. (Its) new city charter provision made the IPA a permanent branch of city government. (This change to the City Charter also directed the (Mayor and its 10) City Council to appoint an IPA to serve a

four-year term and established that the midterm removal of an IPA requires a vote of approval of at least ten (10) of the eleven (11) members of San Jose's City Council. (San Jose City Charter, Section 809). This added City Charter item established a stable audit and monitor function. Since 1996, (San Jose's) IPA has been auditing and monitoring SJPD activities with the result that many significant changes in police operations have been made with prior SJPD's informed cooperative involvement and agreement. This 'Auditor-Monitor Model' has been adopted by seven other jurisdictions. Each has evaluated its own culture and circumstances to determine how best to structure oversight and monitoring that is effective while creating TRUST between community being served and its police. One significant development was the development of an effective COMPLAINT PROCESS which yielded useful data. Over time, it was observed that of each 100 sworn officers about 3 to 5 generated 85% of complaints submitted. These officers were counseled, reoriented, and re-trained; certain ones who did not respond to these efforts were released from the police force. CITIZENS MUST UNDERSTAND THAT THEIR COMPLAINTS ARE MEANINGFUL AND PERMIT POLICE ADMINISTRATORS TO IDENTIFY WHO NEEDS ASSISTANCE AND WHO WILL NEVER BE 'A GOOD COP'. Reviews of complaints by both IPA and the SJPD's Internal Auditor (IA) have resulted in several policy changes. Are you aware that the entire Police Procedure Manual is posted online now? Are you

aware that each officer who has an encounter with a civilian in San Jose must record the reason for the actions taken. This has almost eliminated the 'curb sittings' which often happened in the past. More improvements could be adopted and implemented. All complaints about police behavior need to be aggregated to create one data base whose analysis would be useful to 'police management'. Many of those complaints sent directly to the Police Department do not get over to the IPA's office... with the result that the data base is lacking those never reviewed by the IPA. Another improvement is the direct involvement of the IPA in all officer-involved shooting incidents. A recent development is including the IPA as an observer. It is recommended the IPA be authorized to be an official attendee and evaluator of all police-involved shooting incidents. There is one major improvement that needs to be made. That change is within the jurisdiction of those who deal with justice. Presently, all an officer has to say is 'I felt my life was in danger' (or someone was in harm’s way) which results in no charges at all being made even if the witness or video evidence indicate that 'probable cause' existed or an inappropriate factor was applied. The data available is incomplete because of the lack of 'uniform review and reporting standards'. Tradition is that a sworn officer is rarely, if ever, indicted for inappropriate actions taken which resulted in the termination of someone's life. The best way to resolve this imperfection is to ensure that all officer involved shootings are reviewed by an audit group which has no conflict of interest. Currently all IA audits contain

officers who are peers and 'buddies' to those officers whose actions are being assessed. As a citizen, I have served on IPA's Citizen's Advisory Committee since 2005. As a civilian, I have had extensive prior exposure to death and dying as a collateral experience of being a health care professional (plus being a military surgical technician specialist for 30 months). I have an abiding interest in improving the delivery of justice especially to the marginalized individuals who tend to be low income and persons of color who disproportionately end up in prisons or jails. Lady Justice, the icon, is blindfolded to signify that justice is blind; Justice should be objective and impartial; and justice must reflect core values and ideals. Justice delayed is justice denied; Justice must be delivered in a timely manner even though it takes time to accomplish full discovery of evidence whose truthful and factual weight ensures impartiality which balance the Scales of Justice. These days Lady Justice is being thwarted by the fears of those who have the power and influence needed to obstruct achievement of ideal justice. All that is required is 'one sympathetic and compassionate step for humanity' on behalf of humankind. That step is to have every officer-involved shooting reviewed, assessed, and evaluated by inclusion of an independent auditor who has no conflict of interest. The family members of a decedent and the community merit the delivery of justice through means that are fair, impartial, and not tainted with corruption, prejudice or favoritism. Justice takes a lot of work, commitment and perseverance...and “We, The People” demand it for all of us.

BIENVENIDOS A LA REVOLUCIÓN Por José López Zamorano Para La Red Hispana “Buenas Tardes. A los líderes, escépticos y cínicos que nos pidieron quedarnos sentados y silenciosos, esperar nuestro turno, bienvenidos a la revolución. Es una revolución poderosa porque es hecha por y para los jóvenes de este país”. Con ese mensaje contundente, Cameron Kasky, uno de los sobrevivientes de la masacre de la escuela preparatoria Marjory Stoneman Douglas, de Parkland, Florida, proyectó lo que muchos jóvenes esperan se convierta el movimiento estudiantil por la seguridad escolar y el control de armas: un factor de cambio real y no sólo

un altoparlante de reclamos. Cubrí como periodista la “Marcha Por Nuestras Vidas” en Washington, DC el pasado fin de semana. Imposible no contagiarse de la pasión de decenas de miles de jóvenes, algunos de ellos niños, que con sus gritos y pancartas mostraban su profunda inconformidad por la incapacidad de los adultos para contener la violencia de las armas de fuego. La generación adicta a la gratificación instantánea exige cambios inmediatos, profundos, efectivos. Aún está por verse si las movilizaciones de los jóvenes se convierten en un agente

del cambio político real. Pero las zancadas que han dado en apenas unas semanas son reflejo de su potencial. Y sus metas trascienden la política del enojo: Han enfocado sus baterías a registrar jóvenes votantes, alentarlos a la participación política plena, incluido votar. Debo reconocer que, al igual que en otras movilizaciones donde el tema central no es la migración, me decepcionó la escasa presencia de rostros latinos. No es la primera vez. Es desafortunado porque la violencia de las armas trasciende colores, niveles económicos o estatus migratorios. Peor aún: está documentado que las comunidades de color padecen un desproporcional impacto de la violencia armada.

Se trató pues de una movilización abrumadoramente blanca en una ciudad, Washington, DC, donde la abrumadora mayoría de su población es afro-americana. Al igual que los “dreamers” en su momento, los sobrevivientes de Parkland han atrapado la atención y la imaginación de un país que parecía haber olvidado que casi todos los cambios profundos inician desde abajo, desde las comunidades que empujan a los políticos a actuar o pagar las consecuencias en las urnas. Ahora es turno de los adultos de seguir el ejemplo de nuestros hijos. Para más información visita www.laredhispana.com

"MARCH FOR OUR LIVES" TEACHES HANDS-ON CIVICS

APRIL 6 - 12, 2018

1999, more than 187,000 students have been exposed to gun violence at schools. Kaaren Haldeman, a statewide volunteer for Moms Demand Action, says the engagement behind the March for Our Lives could be shaping the next generation of voters. "I like that they've turned to civic action as their outlet, says Haldeman. “It may be the generation that is a voting generation, because they've seen what's happened in the past. You know, we've been at this for 20 years and we've barely moved the needle." Sutton says the youth involved in the March for Our Lives are learning firsthand what going beyond the vote means.

Stephanie Carson Public News Service ASHEVILLE, N.C. – In an unprecedented demonstration of civic engagement, hundreds of thousands of young people and other activists came out for hundreds of March For Our Lives events planned around the world. In Asheville, North Carolina, local students are organizing the march with assistance from the local chapter of Moms Demand Action.  Asheville lead for Moms Demand Action, Jean Sutton, says it's important to remember this call for

change is something the Black Lives Matter movement began fighting for after Trayvon Martin was killed. "These students have been at this for five years, asking and advocating for the exact same things that we are now doing,” says Sutton. “There is more media focus now, this time, but this is not a new issue and I can understand the frustration in other communities who say, 'Hey, wait a second, we've been doing this for a long time now.'" March for Our Lives – initiated in part by the people behind the Women's March – is calling for passage of legislation to address the gunviolence issues the country is facing. Since the Columbine shootings in

"They can join local chapters of Students Demand Action, which is being activated after Saturday, and they can learn about these issues,” she says. “They can learn about state legislation. They can be educators themselves to their friends who are able to vote." North Carolina currently has no restrictions on assault weapons, no caliber or magazine capacity restrictions and few restrictions on the open carrying of firearms. North Carolina's U.S. Senators Richard Burr and Thom Tillis are among the top 10 recipients of National Rifle Association funding over the course of their careers – accepting a total of $11.6 million from the organization.

letters to guide you through the recovery process. To further protect yourself against identity theft, secure your information offline with these tips from your BBB: • Limit what you carry. When out and about, only take what you need – leave your Social Security card behind. Lock up financial documents, records, and anything containing sensitive personal information in a safe in your home. Lock up your purse or wallet while at work as well. • Keep an eye on your mail. Use a secure, locked mailbox if possible. If you don’t have a locked mailbox, take sensitive outgoing mail to the post office or to a post office box and pick up incoming mail as soon as possible. Only order new checks to your home if you have a secure mailbox.

Thankfully, there are steps you can take to mitigate your risk. According to the FTC, it’s important to “shred receipts, credit offers, credit applications, insurance forms, physician statements, checks, bank statements, expired charge cards, and similar documents when you don’t need them any longer.” If you don’t own a shredder, your Better Business Bureau (BBB) is here to help! Join BBB at Concord City Hall on April 21 from 10am–2pm for BBB’s bi-annual “Secure Your ID Day”, a free shedding event.

• Don’t overshare. The FTC  recommends that “before you share information at your workplace, a business, your child’s school, or a doctor’s office, ask why they need it, how they will safeguard it, and the consequences of not sharing.” This is especially true for your Social Security Number (SSN). Ask if you can use a different kind of identification, although sometimes you will have to share your SSN. Be careful sharing health plan information and destroy the labels on prescriptions bottles before throwing them out. You can reach your BBB at info@bbbemail. org or (510) 844-2000, or by visiting bbb.org.

Para protegerse aún más contra el robo de identidad, proteja su información fuera de línea con estos consejos de su BBB: • Limite lo que trae. Cuando salir de su hogar, solo tome lo que necesita; deje su tarjeta de Seguro Social. Cierre con llave en una caja fuerte documentos financieros, registros, y cualquier cosa que contenga información personal confidencial. También cierre con llave su bolso o billetera mientras trabaja. • Vigile su correo. Use un buzón seguro y cerrado si es posible. Si no tiene un buzón seguro, lleve su correo confidencial a la oficina postal y recoja su correo lo antes posible. Sólo solicite nuevos cheques a su hogar si tiene un buzón seguro. • No comparta demasiada información. La FTC recomienda que “antes de compartir información en su lugar de trabajo, un negocio, la escuela de su hijo, o la oficina de un médico, pregunte por que los necesitan, cómo los salvaguardarán, y las consecuencias de no compartir.” Esto es especialmente verdad para su número de seguro social (SSN). Pregunte si puede usar un tipo de identificación diferente, aunque a veces tendrá que compartir su SSN. Tenga cuidado al compartir su información del plan de salud y destruya las etiquetas en los frascos de recetas antes de tirarlos. Puede ponerse en contacto con su BBB a través de info@bbbemail.org o (510) 8442000, o en bbb.org.

“FINDING NEVERLAND”: A LOOK INTO PETER PAN’S BEGINNINGS

Performer Ixchel Cuellar breaks down the ins and outs of the boy with the green cap and her path to the stage

end of the day it’s a job, it’s a career and we all are so talented and I want everyone to believe that we are enough. Ixchel, could you give me your take on what the premise of “Finding Neverland” is about? It’s a story about how Peter Pan came into fruition. So, we all know the story of Peter Pan but it’s about J.M. Barrie, the author, and how he became inspired to write this story. He is feeling writer’s block and meets this family of four boys and a mom who live their life to the fullest, but there’s one kid who doesn’t believe in being a kid because he has dealt with the death of his father, and if everyone's going to grow up anyway, why should you live life in color? And J.M. Barrie essentially teaches this boy and his family how to be a kid, and he embraces being a kid and of course [Barrie] is inspired to write this story about never growing up, and to believe in anything you want to believe in. What role(s) do you perform in the production? I am part of the ensemble, so I do a lot of stuff. I’m a maid, an Indian, a London town person, an actor, but I understudied both Peter Pan and Wendy. And actually in New York I swung, so I had to know all six of the female ensemble parts and I’ve actually gone up and have played all six of those parts. Do you have a favorite character to play in this?

Arturo Hilario El Observador

Ixchel Cuellar is a San Francisco native who is currently touring with the national Broadway production of “Finding Neverland”. The story involves the background and creation of the fabled “boy who wouldn’t grow up”, most famous for his depiction in the 1953 Disney animated film. The San Jose leg of the tour will be taking place at the Center for the Performing Arts from April 17–22, 2018. We had an opportunity to talk to Cuellar about her background in the arts, her favorite things about “Finding Neverland”, and why she believes it’s always important to see in yourself your worth. Hello Ixchel, to start off could you tell me a little bit about your beginnings, and what got you interested in the performing arts? I was originally born in San Francisco. My dad is a musician, [from] Dr. Loco's Rockin' Jalapeno Band, it’s a Latin band, so I always grew up around music. I would always go up on stage with my dad and dance with him so then that kind of showed that I had this dance bug. So, my parents put me in classes and I started dancing at a pretty young age and dabbled around and then I started doing musical theater. I went to San Francisco School of the Arts for high school dance and did musical theater on the side. Then I decided to keep going so I went to Penn State School for Musical Theater and studied there for 4 years. At the end of my senior year, I got “Finding Neverland” on Broadway. So, I did that for some months as a swing. Now I’m touring with “Finding Neverland” on the road.

So, I found out that while at Penn State you started the Broadway show, before you even finished school. How was that? I finished school a little early. I went to a couple random auditions during spring break and I got a call from casting saying they were going to bring me in. I got a call on a Friday night to be there on Sunday in New York for a costume fitting, [with] rehearsal Tuesday so I could make my debut on Friday. It was crazy. I packed all my stuff up at school, got on a bus and came to New York, very cliché, but it happened. So, it was like a montage? Yeah for sure. So, at school what type of work were you doing? I read that you worked with puppets in “Avenue Q” towards the end of your tenure. How was that? Yeah! I did a lot of stuff. I did “Avenue Q”, “110 In the Shade”, I did a lot of different kinds of things, which was good, they pushed me out of my comfort zone. I always associated myself as a dancer, so it was good that they made me do other things that didn’t involve dancing, and I feel like it really helped me grow as an artist, and a human. Out of all those things you participated in besides dancing, which one was your most challenging, or the one that was most rewarding to learn or experience? I think the biggest thing I’ve learned in this journey is to trust that you are enough, because there’s so many people telling you that you’re not enough. We spend all day every day in front of a Panel of humans telling us whether we’re right or not right for something, and you have to believe that you are enough and capable to do the job because at the

I think have a soft spot in my heart for the first one and the last one that I did. The first one was Ms. Bassett, because it was my Broadway debut and it was something that I kind of anticipated for so long, and then it happened so I have a soft spot in my heart for that, and then Peter Pan because it’s

APRIL 6 - 12, 2018 so special. It’s such a beautiful story and to get to dance like that it’s awesome. Is there any part of it, whether behind the scenes, watching in the audience, or participating in that you really enjoy? I think my favorite is the Act 1 finale called “Stronger”, it’s a big pirate number where he really gets inspired by Captain Hook and his pirates and it’s so fun because I get to be a pirate on a rat line hanging from ropes and everyone is on stage and it’s so, so, so fun. Would you say that fans of Peter Pan and its lore would find similar tones in “Finding Neverland”, or a different type of experience? It’s similar in tone in the sense that the whole story is about how [J.M.] came up with the idea, it’s creating a backstory of how he came up with it and it’s totally a family musical. There are elements that are just a little different than Peter Pan. I would say that if you love Peter Pan then I would highly recommend it because it shows how [he] came to be. Okay here’s my last question. Thanks so much for your time Ixchel. When you guys come to the Bay Area, why would you recommend people come and see “Finding Neverland”? Because it’s a story about family, love, and living the most out of taking advantage of your life and living in full color rather than in black and white. It’s a show about growing up and finding peace in all parts of life, which is living or in the afterlife, and trusting that love will carry you through.

Q&A: “SELENABRATING” CULTURA

A First-Hand Look at the 4th Annual Tribute Party Celebrating the Sounds and Soul of Selena

“Selenabration”, the 4th annual Sonido Clash tribute night, expands to Oakland on Saturday April 14th. San Jose’s event takes place on Friday April 13th. Photo Credit: Gabe Nuanez

Arturo Hilario El Observador Soon a Latinx icon will mesh with local icons, and Cumbia music will fuse with new world sounds. For two nights only. The 4th Annual Selena Tribute Party, put on by San Jose’s cultural arts collective Sonido Clash, is expanding for this year, with two events planned on April 13th and 14th, 2018. One will take place where previous iterations have been held, The Back Bar, while a new location, Oakland’s Starline Social Club, will be extending the festivities to the East Bay. According to the group, the Oakland event expands into their “second home”. As in past Selena tribute nights, the group has curated unique representations of not only the Latinx community, but that of the rest of the world as well. With this year’s entry into the celebration of Selena Quintanilla’s life, her influences, and those influenced by her, there is DJ’s, cover bands, all bound by the love of music and the emotions surrounding her legacy. Some of the musical acts this year include Selenamos, a tribute band which includes members of both La Santa Cecilia and Chicano Batman, and exclusive DJ’s and MC’s at each venue. We had a chance to speak to some of these guest performers and talent for the Selenabration, including DJ Sizzle (Official Selena Set), Chrisol (Selenamos), Claudia Candelas (host), Que Madre (Official Selena Set), DJ Sizzle, Chrisol Lomeli (Selenamos) and

Fela Kutchi (host). What would you say is the reason you became interested in music? What influenced you to pursue it? Is there a moment, a specific memory or time in your life where you realized you wanted to start making music? DJ Sizzle Fantastic: I truly feel music just runs through my veins. I come from a family where music was always present. Whether we were celebrating or mourning, music was always there to help us process. Since as long as I can remember, both my parents have always instilled the love for music in me. Naturally, becoming a DJ wasn’t a too far-fetched idea since I already had the love for music at a young age, however; the full focus on the craft didn’t come until later when I decided to really focus on the things that made me happy, in this case, being music. Chrisol: My interest in music stems from an innate passion that I've had since I was a kid to perform. I've always loved to sing and worked really hard to hone it in and started writing in middle school. Selenamos is a project that gives me a chance to pay tribute to an idol of mine that showed me it was possible to be a musician for a living. I was about 5 years old when I started understanding who she was, what she did, and from there my dream of being a professional singer was born Claudia: I’ve always loved music from all kinds of genres. From 2pac to Intocable, and of course Selena! Que Madre: I’ve always been into music.

A lot of my music influence comes from my mom. She used to play typical Latin music on Sunday morning while cleaning such as Jose Jose and Juan Gabriel but would also listen to romanticas and Cumbia. When my mom moved here from Mexico my family moved to East Los Angeles, so oldies and Motown was a big influence in her life as well. Fela Kutchi: My mom was a Prince junkie and my dad Prince's bodyguard, so I was conceived by the love of Prince. So musica [is] in a way imbedded into my DNA. As I grew up my Uncle Quincy, a great saxophone player, shared his love of Jazz with me and my grandmother at the age of 5 bought me my 1st record, "SAY IT LOUD" by James Brown. I didn't know I wanted to participate in musica when growing up, but I felt very connected since birth to the rhythms of Funk, Soul, Jazz, and the free spirit of those genres. Like I always knew I wanted to be an entertainer, but it was until I saw M.I.A. for the first time in the 8th grade that I decided I wanted to make musica. How would you describe your music? How do other people tend to describe it? DJ Sizzle Fantastic: The music/music playlists I create are nostalgic, feel good

music. The type of music that bring back memories. I make my mixes with my parents, my family, and friends in mind. Many of my mixes are curated with songs that many of us grew up listening to whether at family gatherings, at parties, or out in the streets of our beautiful barrios. You can hear a song in mixes I create that automatically take you back into a childhood memory whether that’d be one of a cousin’s quince or one of your parents bumping it on a weekend morning letting you know it was time to get up and clean. Chrisol: Selenamos is that the band is a collection of musicians with our own projects who come together to perform music that people love. Each of us have a different sound apart from this group but Cumbia is a common denominator. What Selenamos does as a unit is perform the music to the best of our abilities; never to impersonate. What we do as a tribute is unique. We take her medleys and throw in nuances of what we feel Selena would appropriate into her music if she were around today. Que Madre: I would describe my music as being representative and showcasing where I grew up (Boyle Heights/East Los

Angeles). I feel like the music I choose to play is fighting against the erasure of our culture, history and music. Fela Kutchi: I'd say it's very Afro Futuristic Funk, heavy on the percussions. If it got a strong conga and inspires you to move your hips, I'm playing it. You’re part of the Sonido Clash Selenabration, what opinion do you have on Selena, were you a fan growing up? DJ Sizzle Fantastic: I grew up in Mexico, where Selena was pretty big, so yes, I was a fan as a four-year-old little brown grrrl. Selena was definitely a pioneer for representation of young Latinx womxn. She was groundbreaking in many ways and just such a powerful mujer at such a young age. She was definitely someone I looked up to as a young grrrl, and still someone I admire as an adult. Chrisol: Selena is the epitome of authenticity. Her legacy resonates so much not only because of the music but because of the person she was. She was genuine, and it was evident in every outfit, photo, performance, and interview. I was as obsessed with her when I was five as I am now. Claudia: Growing up I always loved listening to Selena’s music. She was a woman who was a role model to so many young girls and she continues to be one. Selena paved the way for Mexican American artists and for women in music. And of course, I absolutely loved her style and her confidence. She could rock any outfit! Que Madre: Yes! I was 7 years old when the movie came out and I distinctly recall going to the movie theater with my family and watching the film. When I got a bit older my mom bought me her cd and I would listen to it all the time in elementary and middle school. Fela Kutchi: I love Selena! And growing up she was such an important pop star to me and my older sister. We used to listen to Wild 107.7 and she was in heavy rotation. I remember seeing “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” music video for the first time and she was so cool to me, and she had this long curly hair like mine in that video, it was awesome! Do you have a favorite Selena song? Anything that’s a favorite karaoke tune? DJ Sizzle Fantastic: My top 3 include: “No Me Queda Mas”, “Si Una Vez”, and “Cobarde”. All three of these were played almost daily by my Mom and Tias when I was growing up, who were clearly coping with some sort of heartbreak, all good though, we all heal and process different ways. I’m also a really big fan of Selena’s disco medleys which include: “I Will

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com Survive”, “Funky Town”, “Last Dance”, “Do the Hustle”, and “On the Radio” (a personal favorite of mine). Although not original tracks by her, her renditions of the songs are just fantastic, and get me dancing every single time I play them. Chrisol: I have more than one favorite, but each is for a different reason. My favorite to perform is "La Carcacha" because the band kills it when we're on stage and I really get caught up in the moment. My favorite to listen to is "No Quiero Saber" because it's so deliciously 90s. My go to Karaoke track would be "Tus Desprecios”. Claudia: I love the Cumbia medley she performs live. It’s a mixture of some awesome classics with her own twist. Love it! Que Madre: To be honest, all of Selena’s songs are bangers and karaoke hits. My favorite is “Techno-Cumbia”. Fela Kutchi:   I have so many but Dreaming really holds a special place in my heart. I remember listening to that song and would look out my bedroom window into the night sky be crying singing along with her pretending to be singing this to my imaginary boyfriend. I had a cassette tape with all my favorite songs from the radio recorded and Dreaming was one of them and so I would play out that song and fantasy. Any other artist(s) on the lineup you’re looking forward to hearing? DJ Sizzle Fantastic: I’m excited to meet and finally hear DJ Lady Ryan live! I think she’s such a badass and a pioneer for womxn DJ’s everywhere. I’m also excited to share the stage with Selenamos, Que Madre, and of course, the homies of Sonido Clash.

Why should folks come check out your set at Selenabration? DJ Sizzle Fantastic: Because it’s gonna be F A N T A S T I C ! I sincerely love the bay area so much and every time I play up there, I try to give my absolute best. So, come dance and catch a vibe with me and I promise you I will do my best to keep you on the dance floor! Chrisol: The name Selenamos is a conjugation of Selena's name into a verb that means "Let's Selena," and that's what we invite her fans to do. Our shows are a chance for you to sing as loud as you want, and hear your favorite tracks played by a band made up of some of the best Cumbieros Los Angeles has to offer. We guarantee a set full of Selena's hits and more surprises to keep you dancing all night! Claudia: I’ll be hosting the event and I feel so excited and honored to be part of it! It’s going to be a fun event and I’ll bringing lots of energy! Que Madre: Folks should come out if they like to dance and move their feet! Fela Kutchi: I'm so flattered to be asked to participate and I'm really excited to celebrate the life and the musica of icon Selena. How can they find you or listen/see more of you work?

Congress Consistently Votes with Wall Street, Against Consumers Suzanne Potter California News Service

The report found all but one of California's 14 GOP representatives voted for 17 out of 19 anti-consumer bills supported by the financial industry. Wall Street has argued for years that Obama-era banking regulations went too far and restrict the availability of credit.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - While much of the country has been focused on Trump administration scandals, a new report shows Congress has been busy doing Wall Street's bidding.

Recently, the Senate passed Senate Bill 2115, a big financial deregulation package - one that Lardner said takes the heat off many large banks that were part of the crash of 2008.

Since last year, according to the sixth annual report by the group Americans for Financial Reform, the House Financial Services Committee has passed more than six dozen bills to loosen restrictions on the financial industry - with the support of virtually all Republicans and an occasional Democrat. Report coauthor James Lardner, a senior fellow at the group, cited one bill signed by President Donald Trump in October that allows companies to force consumers who allege fraud into arbitration - and keeping them from filing a class-action lawsuit. "The result is that, if you're cheated by your credit card company or your student lender, or what have you," Lardner said, they're perfectly entitled to say you're

"And it excuses banks with between $50 billion and $250 billion in assets from some of the sort of automatic scrutiny that big banks were supposed to get after the financial crisis," he said, "to make sure they didn't engage in dangerous, risky practices." A new report says the House Financial Services Committee has passed 82 bills supported by Wall Street since President Donald Trump took office. Photo Credit: Treptoweralex/Pixabay

not allowed to go to court, and you're not allowed to band together with other people who've been cheated in the same way."

Lardner said the secrecy of mandatory arbitration allowed Wells Fargo to get away with creating fake accounts for four years. He added that the tax bill greatly benefited Wall Street.

Polls show most voters support more regulation for Wall Street. Nonetheless, the deregulation bill will now go to the U.S. House, where hard-line conservatives have said it doesn't go far enough to lighten the load on banks. The report is online at ourfinancialsecurity.org.

"There's no reason that we should be excluding anyone who is willing to serve their country from doing so, and everyone ought to be held to the exact same standards, and anyone who can meet those standards should be able to serve in uniform," he explains.  Trump has said that having transgender people in the military would reduce military effectiveness and lethality and has complained about the government footing the cost of gender-reassignment surgery.

All parties to the transactions given rise to this civil action were voluntary residents of the State of California at the time of those transactions and voluntarily executed documents and otherwise entered agreements while present in the State of California. 6. On January 20, 2009, RESIDENTIAL FUNDING received assignment of

all beneficial interests in the SUBJECT REAL PROPERTY as defined in the Deed of Trust executed October 1, 2001 by Plaintiff MIGUEL Z. LOPEZ for the purpose of securing debt not to exceed $100,000.00. 7.

INSOMNIO, CAUSAS, EFECTOS Y CÓMO COMBATIRLO Si se despierta a mitad de la noche y le cuesta volver a dormirse. Al despertar se siente cansado, advierte ojeras y presenta mal humor. En ocasiones despierta muy temprano o en la madrugada. El insomnio puede dividirse en tres tipos o etapas.

Mario Jiménez Castillo El Observador

El insomnio se describe como uno de los padecimientos más comunes alrededor del mundo. En Estados Unidos, solamente, se cree que más de 40 millones de personas lo padecen. Cada persona tiene su propio horario para dormir debido a su estilo de vida, edad y necesidades biológicas. Las horas normales de sueño se han establecido entre seis, siete, ocho y hasta diez horas diarias. Si no duerme las horas necesarias habituales, es probable que esté padeciendo de insomnio. Los indicios más frecuentes del insomnio se presentan: Cuando le es difícil dormirse y conciliar el sueño y no lo consigue hasta pasada la media noche.

APRIL 20

La primera se reconoce como Insomnio transitorio, sus síntomas aparecen durante un par de semanas, lo máximo un mes. En muchas ocasiones este tipo de insomnio es el resultante del efecto jet-lag, debido a un largo viaje. Otra posible causa suele ser haber dormido en uno o varios lugares por un período de más de tres días. Los médicos pueden verificar prontamente la causa del insomnio transitorio y en la gran mayoría de los casos no es necesario ningún tipo de tratamiento con fármacos. El denominado Insomnio intermitente es aquel desorden del sueño que puede aparecer de manera casual, provocado mayormente por problemas, angustias, dilemas y situaciones de la vida cotidiana. Cuando se presenta un problema en el trabajo, con los hijos, con la pareja o con el tema de preocupación de moda “la situación económica”. Cuando llega la tan ansiada solución el insomnio transitorio llega a su final.

El Insomnio Crónico es reconocido por afectar a la persona durante dos meses consecutivos o más, este tipo de insomnio debe ser tratado por un médico y en ocasiones también demanda apoyo psicológico e inclusive psiquiátrico. Una gran cantidad de personas padecen de este mal y creen resolverlo al ingerir somníferos; éstos no acaban con el padecimiento, únicamente le disfrazan, volviéndose este desorden cada vez más incisivo y peligroso para la buena salud mental Generalmente el insomnio suele ser provocado por alteraciones físicas como los dolores causados por la gota y la artritis, migrañas constantes, padecimientos de las vías respiratorias, resequedad de las mucosas corporales, afecciones neurológicas, disfunción sexual, problema con la tiroides y marcadas irritaciones de la piel, entre otras posibles razones. Entre las causas de tipo mental, el insomnio puede ser el resultado de una fuerte depresión, ataques de ansiedad, angustia y enfermedades neurológicas. Si el insomnio no se trata a tiempo, éste puede derivar en un padecimiento mental que requerirá atención psiquiátrica. Existen causas externas cuya reacción puede ser causal de insomnio, como por ejemplo: Las muy altas o bajas temperaturas, los ruidos, la presencia de luz y los movimientos. La ingerencia de drogas como el éxtasis, la

cocaína, el crack, los hongos alucinógenos, y las anfetaminas pueden fácilmente producir insomnio. El periódico consumo de café, la nicotina, los refrescos con alto contenido de ácido carbónico y el exceso de alcohol también pueden provocar insomnio. Algunos medicamentos contra el cáncer, medicinas para la tiroides y los diuréticos producen insomnio como reacción secundaria. Para que el insomnio crónico pueda ser tratado con eficacia, primero debe ser diagnosticada la causa física, emocional o externa que lo produce. Será necesario que el paciente realice un cambio significativo en su estilo de vida, hábitos alimenticios, actividades diarias y en el caso que consuma drogas, tendrá que ser sometido a una desintoxicación. A menudo, la intervención de un psicólogo y un consejero sirve de apoyo cuando la etapa de curación comienza. En algunos casos será necesario ingerir temporalmente algún tipo de medicamento.

Los expertos recomiendan realizar actividades benignas para el cuerpo, la mente y el espíritu para combatir y prevenir el insomnio, por ejemplo, hacer ejercicio, salir a caminar, bailar, practicar algún deporte, nadar, hacer oración diariamente, visitar bosques, ríos, lagos, playas, exponerse al sol de la mañana y realizar obras de caridad. En algunos países se ha tratado el insomnio con la marihuana, parece ser que a algunas personas les ha dado resultado. La sugerencia general es visitar a un médico y evitar auto medicarse. El insomnio se puede curar.

Want to learn to scrape a website automatically? Here’s a step-by-step article on Medium. Bad Bot Behavior Using the two free, best practices test tools I have outlined above along with Node.js (which enables JavaScript to be used for server-side scripting) and MongoDB (a database), let’s hypothetically go scrape a politically charged area on Reddit (we could do this for any site on the Internet) that espouses our hypothetical political ideology. We’ll code this bot to scrape for posts that include the words “Thomas Jefferson” and collect them in the database.

Shelly Palmer You live in a war zone. You cannot see the enemy, you do not know when you are under attack, and you have no way to determine who has won any given battle on any given day. Since the consequences of any specific attack are intangible on a personal level, it’s hard to get people to take evasive action, let alone any kind of preemptive action. In this war, it’s you against the bots and trolls. And, although you may not know it, you are being viciously attacked every day. To help you understand how, I am going to teach you (for informational purposes only) how to weaponize social media, and build your own troll farm. If you can read, copy, and paste, then you can do this. Let’s begin. Bots and Trolls In the past, a bot was software and a troll was a person. Today, using open source software and some inexpensive cloud services, you can create AItroll/bot combinations and release armies of them at extremely low cost. This, as my good friend Col. John Fenzel (Ret.) says, helps perpetuate “a state of enduring social conflict enabled and empowered by social media.” Bots Defined A bot is a software application used to automatically execute commands, automatically respond to inputs, or some combination of both. If you’ve ever created a macro for Excel or

Photoshop or written an AppleScript to automate processes on your computer, you’ve enjoyed the benefits of bot-style automation. There are good bots and bad bots. A good bot might be used to test the code you’ve written for the login section of your new website. A bad bot might do exactly the same thing on someone else’s website using stolen credentials. Sadly, the technology for the good and for the bad is virtually identical. Bad Bots Let’s think about how you might weaponize a social media account using a bad bot. First, you need to create a valid social media account. That’s easy. Go to your favorite free email provider and create a new email account such as badbot@gmail.com. Use that account to create a new Twitter account, @badbot. Now let’s have some fun. Headless Chrome Google says, “Headless Chrome is a way to run the Chrome browser in a headless environment without the full browser UI.” Its highest, best purpose is to empower engineers to test their software. But for our nefarious purposes, Headless Chrome is a Chrome browser that we can run automatically (from our Bot) that is virtually indistinguishable from the Chrome browser you are probably using to read this on the Internet. Why? Because it “is” a Chrome browser. The difference is that you run Headless Chrome with software instead of by hand. Headless Chrome

Next we’ll run our data through a sentiment engine such as Amazon Comprehend. Our goal is to find posts that match our sentiment criteria (for example, negative, positive, or neutral). With the data evaluated and scored, we can use some open source Markov chain tools to craft tweets from these negative posts. They won’t all be brilliant witticisms espousing our political beliefs, but there will be lots of them and our point will be made. Our final step is to  build and deploy a multifunctional Twitter bot  with this easy online instruction set from freecodecamp.org Time to Launch an Attack With your new web-scraping tool, you could look for the lowest prices on that new pair of skis you were thinking about, or you could look for propaganda, fake news, or anything else that might need support to become a trending social media topic. With your new analysis tools, you can evaluate each piece of content (text or image) and let an AI or statistical

TECHNOLOGY

machine learning tool-set craft your messages. With your new Twitter bot, you can send just the right number of tweets each day in order to fake Twitter into believing that your bot is a human. Now replicate this a few hundred thousand times. Can you imagine how much more sophisticated this gets when highly paid professionals do this kind of work? While commanding a bot army may cost you a few hundred to a few thousand dollars per month, this type of troll farm is likely to yield exceptional political results. There’s More For bonus points, you can use 100 percent of the mar-tech tools available for hyper-targeted, programmatic advertising to ensure that your messages are reaching the right people at the right places at the right times. Combine troll farms, mar-tech, and AI, and as Mr. Miyagi says, “If do right, no can defense.” This Is an Arms Race This is an arms race. It will never end. At the moment, the bad guys (and it is unclear who they are) are winning because the good guys aren’t putting up much of a fight. Facebook, Twitter, Google, and other tier 1 tech companies are trying their best to identify what is real and what is fake, but AI is making it harder and harder to distinguish between a human and a machine. What happens next? It’s time to get serious about this. You now have a good idea of what anyone can do with off-the-shelf technology. Let’s get everyone educated as quickly as possible so we can have substantive discussions about defense. Otherwise, we are doomed to fight an endless war of narrative vs. counternarrative until we enter the post-post-truth era. Author’s note: This is not a sponsored post.

APRIL 6 - 12, 2018

El Programa de Agua Limpia y Segura, y Protección Natural contra Inundaciones El Programa de Agua Limpia y Segura, y Protección Natural contra Inundaciones (Agua Limpia y Segura) es un programa de 15 años aprobado por los votantes para implementar las prioridades de la comunidad para los recursos de agua presentes y futuros del Condado de Santa Clara.

Notificación de Audiencia Pública Que:

Audiencia Pública sobre las Propuestas Modificaciones al Programa de Reembolso por Sistema de Tratamiento para el Nitrato y el Proyecto de Protección contra Inundaciones del Upper Penitencia Creek

Cuándo: Abril 10, 2018 a la 1:00 p.m. Dónde:

Oficinas del Distrito, Salón de la Directiva, 5700 Almaden Expressway, San José, CA 95118

Las modificaciones al programa aprobado por los votantes requiere una audiencia pública. Al corriente, se han propuesto dos cambios.

Programa de Reembolso por Sistema de Tratamiento para el Nitrato. La modificación propuesta es para el Proyecto A2, Indicador Clave de Ejecución (KPI) #3, el Programa de Reembolso por Sistema de Tratamiento para el Nitrato (Programa de Reembolso por Nitrato). El Programa de Reembolso por Nitrato provee fondos para reembolsar a usuarios de pozos privados por el costo de instalar un sistema de tratamiento para el Nitrato para mejorar la calidad del agua y su seguridad. La propuesta modificación reducirá la financiación máxima del programa para alinearse con la demanda del Programa de Reembolso por el Nitrato. Este nivel reducido de financiamiento incluye los fondos gastados hasta la fecha en desarrollar, administrar y anunciar el programa, con una cantidad anual de $4,000 prospectivamente, lo que será usado para reembolsos a través del proyecto hasta su completación en 2023. Esto ayudará a asegurar la continua asistencia para los usuarios de pozos que quieran tomar ventaja de esta oportunidad para reducir los niveles de nitrato en su agua consumible. Los fondos restantes serían asignados a otro proyecto dentro del Programa Agua Limpia y Segura. La propuesta modificación al Indicador Clave de Ejecución #3: Reducir el número de usuarios de pozos privados expuestos al nivel de nitrato arriba del estándar para agua consumible recompensándolos con el 100% de reembolso para los pedidos que sean elegibles por la instalación de sistemas que remueven el nitrato; hasta $30,000 por cada reembolso.

Protección contra Inundaciones de la Upper Penitencia Creek (Coyote Creek a Dorel Drive – San José)

EONEWS ONLINE

La propuesta modificación es para el Proyecto E4, el Proyecto de Protección contra Inundaciones de la Upper Penitencia Creek. El objetivo primario de este proyecto es reducir el riesgo de inundaciones a hogares, escuelas, negocios y autopistas en el Upper Penitencia Creek Watershed localizado en San José. La propuesta modificación reduciría el alcance del Programa de Protección contra Inundaciones de la Upper Penitencia Creek a la fase de planificación solamente a través del Año Fiscal FY19, y asignaría los fondos restantes para completar la reducción del riesgo de inundaciones a lo largo de 9 millas de Coyote Creek, de Montague Expressway a Tully Road. La propuesta modificación contestaría la demanda urgente de reducción del riesgo de inundaciones a lo largo de Coyote Creek. Terminando la fase de planificación del Proyecto de Protección contra Inundaciones para la Upper Penitencia Creek pondría al Distrito en posición de poder perseguir fondos adicionales para diseño y construcción en el futuro, cuando las oportunidades de financiamiento y otras fuentes de fondos se hagan disponibles. Propuesta Modificación al Indicador Clave de Ejecución: 1. Completar un reporte del estudio de planificación para un proyecto de protección contra inundaciones que provee hasta un 1% de protección contra inundaciones a 9,000 hogares, negocios y edificios públicos.
