OPINION

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

NATIONAL UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE POLICY MAY BE POSSIBE medical conditions; and health care insurers must compete).

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR According to Rachel Maddow's commentary (MSNBC 04.02.17, President Trump made a public statement favoring America's having a 'universal health care plan' with a single payor. The U.S. Congress needs to take advantage of this 'very reasonable statement' by acting like a non-partisan deliberative body which crafts the 'National Universal Health Care Legislation' which repairs the 2010 Affordable Care Act (keeping the several good features of the 2010 A.C.A...A child may be covered by parents policy until age 26; all individuals receive health care insurance coverage (no exclusion due to prior

Right now, all policy makers are trying to deal with 'universal health care using the 'competitive market model. This economic model must be replaced with a modified form of the 'public utility model' (such as that applied to utility services (electricity, natural gas, and potable water). The reality is that a sick patient (the customer) who has a medical condition (broken bone; appendicitis; impacted tooth etc) does not have time nor the inclination to 'shop around for the best price'. And one economist, Milton Friedman, points out that the 'provider knows more and is better educated than the client, who is at great disadvantage...probably desirous of therapy regardless of cost.

A modified 'public utility model' would provide for licensing and certification of the physicians, nurses, all allied para-medical and technical staff (and enc ou ra ge a c cre d it e d teaching institutions to train sufficient numbers of these staff personnel; plus monitor and certify 'durable medical equipment manufacturers, pharmaceutical drug industry and hospital/ clinic chains. The modif ied 'public utility model' could also ensure that rural areas had adequate primary care services accessible locally at reasonable costs. Its goal would be to be innovative and creative in designing a 'continuum of health care services from conception to birth to a life of wellbeing until 'passing on'. It in the best interests of any national society to have its population, especially its working force, in the best of health and wellness

President Trump is a 'business person' who deals with productivity and efficiency at lowest cost. The 'market model has many duplication which add to costs. In addition, a 'public utility model' could be designed to provide the individual patient-client preferences & choices. Finally, some eight nations have used 'a pubic utility model' for decades (Canada, Singapore, etc.). WHY? Simply because healthy individuals are essential to any human activity. Mr. Trump, if you establish America's national health care system, understand that you will 'stabilize' 20% of America's Gross National Product (GNP) created by the effort of educated, trained and informed personnel. And continue to support the basic research efforts of the National Institutes of Health and the National

Science Foundation. Understand that many of those who resist necessary change are fearful of losing what wealth they have today and wish to sustain their current position of power and inf luence. President Trump: Encourage the U.S. Congressional leaders to allocate the funding needed to make progress in implementation of your vision of the future health care service delivery system accessible to all residents of America. Those funds will provide the license to begin the performance, production and consumptions needed to implement that vision which will establish your future station in American history. Monitor fully the use of those allocated resources to ensure honesty and integrity of all health care developmental activities undertaken.

CALIFORNIA, A SAFE STATE FOR UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS Estephany Haro El Observador On Monday, the California senate passed bill SB 54 in response of President Trump’s anti-immigration policies. The bill, proposed by California State Senate President Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) would apply a set of sanctuary policies statewide that would prevent law enforcement from working with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, also known as ICE; with an exception of people who committed serious crimes such as murder and rape. There is disagreement over this bill, both in the senate and in the streets, but I think California is going towards the right path. In the end, the senate did pass the bill with a vote of 27-12. By passing this sanctuary bill, undocumented immigrants will be less fearful in this moment of anxiety and fear. We currently live at a point where parents are being detained by ICE in front of

their children on their way to school. Where parents are scared of sending their children to school, and even of showing up to work themselves. They are afraid of reporting crimes because they don’t want any law enforcement agency to have their personal information.

they haven’t been to in years, they’re afraid that their U.S. citizen children will be taken away from them. However, undocumented immigrants are not the only ones afraid of this administration. The legally staying young people known as “Dreamers” are fearful too.

This is a sad reality for millions of undocumented immigrants who contribute billions of dollars to this economy and generally don’t commit crimes. In a statement from Kevin De Leon after the approval of the bill, he said, “Undocumented residents commit crimes and are incarcerated at a lower rate than native-born residents. Counties with sanctuary policies are safer and economically better off than comparable non-sanctuary counties. Our communities will become more – not less – dangerous if local police are enlisted to enforce immigration laws.”

According to Pew Research there are more than 700,000 young adults under Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program known as DACA, which protects them from deportation and allows them to work legally in the U.S. However now even these Dreamers are on thin ice, because of the Trump administration which has detained at least two DACA recipients without any justification.

Immigrant families are afraid that ICE will show up at their door step and deport them to a country that

At least now with the progress of this sanctuary state bill, the Dreamers residing in California will be less fearful of being detained by immigration agents, therefore, they can continue their education and live their law-abiding lives knowing that their local law enforcement

agencies will not put them at any risk. Even though the bill was passed in the senate with a majority vote, it now has to be passed by the Assembly. If approved, Gov. Jerry Brown would sing it into a law effective Jan. 1, 2018. This can have a tremendous impact, as nearly a quarter of all undocumented immigrants in the United States reside in California, according to the Public Policy Institute of California. In 2105 Gov. Brown passed bill SB60, which grants driver's licenses to undocumented immigrants. In the Bay Area alone, the number of sanctuary counties has increased after President Trump took office. These include San Francisco, Santa Cruz and Alameda, as well as cities such as Oakland and San Jose, according to the Mercury News. Our state is known to be an immigrant friendly state, and so it is good news that they continue to be on the forefront of providing a safe haven to our families, neighbors and friends.

CALIF. EDUCATORS MARCH TO SHOW Maestros de California marcharán SUPPORT FOR IMMIGRANT COMMUNITY en apoyo a la comunidad inmigrante Suzanne Potter California News Service SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Cientos de maestros y empleados de escuelas marchan hoy en Sacramento para manifestar su apoyo a la comunidad inmigrante de California, y su rechazo a los ataques de la administración Trump. La marcha y manifestación paso el día 31 de marzo, día de Cesar Chavez, y marco el arranque de la convención anual numero 75 de la Federación de Maestros de California (CFT, por sus siglas en ingles). Su presidente, Joshua Pechthalt, dice que la ola de deportaciones iniciada por el presidente Donald Trump ha creado un clima de miedo que va en demerito de la educación. California educators say it'll take more than an apple a day to fight changes to immigration and education policies that are affecting public schools. Photo Credit: Jmiltenburg/morguefile

Suzanne Potter California News Service SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Hundreds of educators are marched on Cesar Chavez Day - in Sacramento to show their solidarity with immigrants in California and to oppose the immigration and education policies of the Trump administration. The march and rally kick off the 75th annual convention of the California Federation of Teachers. CFT President Joshua Pechthalt said President Trump's stepped-up wave of deportations has created a climate of fear that is detrimental to education. "The threat of deportation is casting a blanket of fear over our schools," he said. "Kids are coming to school crying. If parents feel that they may be picked up by ICE coming to school, they're not going to come to school. We've seen that happen." Trump supporters have pointed out that ICE simply is enforcing the laws on the books. The march began at 11:30 a.m. at the Sheraton Grand Hotel, making stops at Immigration and Customs Enforcement offices and ending with a rally on the steps of the Capitol building.

CFT Vice President Francisco Rodriguez, a representative of the Pajaro Valley Federation of Teachers in rural Santa Cruz County, said some parents now are afraid to fill out even the most basic forms. "Any paper or information you request from parents is now suspect," he said. "People want to know, 'Why do you want to know where I work, where I live?' And it's part of this insecurity created by the changes in policy."

"La amenaza de la deportación esta tendiendo un manto de miedo sobre nuestras escuelas. Los muchachos llegan llorando. Si los padres sienten que pudieran ser detenidos por el 'ICE' por venir a la escuela, no van a venir... ya hemos visto que así pasa." Los partidarios de Trump señalan que el "ICE" simplemente hace que se cumpla la ley escrita. La marcha comenzó a las 11:30 en el Sheraton Grand Hotel, con paradas en las oficinas de Inmigración y de Aduanas, y termina con un mitin en la escalinata del Capitolio.

Francisco Rodriguez, vicepresidente de la Federación de Maestros de California y representante de la Federación de Maestros de "Pájaro Valley" en el condado rural de Santa Cruz, dice que algunos padres ya tienen miedo de llenar hasta las formas de datos mas simples. "Cualquier papel o información que pidas a los padres levanta sospechas. La gente quiere saber, '¿Por que quieres saber donde trabajo, donde vivo?' Y es parte de su inseguridad, creada por los cambios de políticas." El tema de la conferencia de este ano es "Organizate, Resiste". Pechthalt dice que trabajaran para oponerse a las políticas de la Secretaria de Educación de los Estados Unidos, Betsy DeVos, que promueven el uso de cupones, lo que el piensa que daña a las escuelas publicas canalizando dinero de los impuestos a las escuelas privadas. "Esta claro que van a impulsar una agenda que privatice la educación publica. Serán los campeones de las escuelas "charter" subsidiadas y ella ya fue campeona de los cupones." Agrega que los lideres de la conferencia también harán un llamado para pedir nuevas leyes estatales que limiten la cantidad de escuelas subsidiadas y les exija revelar mas información sobre sus operaciones y administración.

The conference theme this year is "Organize, Resist." Pechthalt said they'll work to oppose U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos' policies that promote the use of vouchers, which he said hurt public schools by funneling tax dollars to private schools. "It's pretty clear that they're going to move on an agenda that privatizes public education," he said. "They're going to be champions of charter schools, and she has been a champion of vouchers." He said conference leaders also will call for new state laws to cap the number of charter schools and require them to disclose more information about their operations and management.

TAKE YOURSELF OUT TO THE BALL GAME WITH THESE TIPS

Forofos del béisbol en el Bay Area, ¡emocionan! Juegos de los Atléticos de Oakland y los Gigantes de San Francisco han comenzado. ¿Quieres ir a un juego? Es importante estar seguro y evitar boletos fraudulentos.

Rebecca Harpster Golden Gate Better Business Bureau Bay Area baseball fans, rejoice! Oakland A’s and SF Giants games have begun. Want to attend a game? It’s important to be safe when purchasing tickets so that you don’t get turned away at the gate. In 2016, consumers nationwide filed around 3,000 complaints on ticket brokers and event ticket sellers with BBB. The leading cause for complaints was problems with refunds and exchanges. Consumers allege being unable to get refunds (even if shows were cancelled or postponed), being charged hidden fees and receiving fraudulent tickets. It can be fun to wear team gear to the game, but only if it’s authentic! Consumers nationwide reported nearly 500 counterfeit product scams to BBB Scam Tracker in 2016, and 53% involved a monetary loss. Buying gear online is especially tricky. In 2016, consumers reported around 2,800 online purchase scams to BBB Scam Tracker. These scams often involve purchasing an item from an unknown website and never receiving it. • Watch out for ticket fraud. Stick to trustworthy sources when buying tickets. The best way to buy is through the Major League Baseball (MLB) official website, mlb.com. If they’re sold out and you have to purchase from an online ticket exchange or broker, be careful. Unfortunately, ticket fraud can occur when you purchase tickets from the secondary market. Look up every business at bbb.org and check out their BBB Business Profile before making a purchase. For more tips on avoiding fraudulent tickets, visit bbb.org/tickets. • When buying gear, watch out for counterfeits. The best way to be sure the hats and jerseys you’re buying are authentic is by shopping at the MLB’s official store, mlbshop.com. You can also find MLB

licensed gear from authorized resellers. If you’re unfamiliar with the business or website, make sure to look it up at bbb. org first to avoid an online purchase scam. Know the signs that an item is counterfeit: it’s much less expensive than items from official shops, the website has spelling or grammatical errors, or logos and colors on the merchandise aren’t right. • Be smart when making a purchase. Whenever you’re making a purchase online, protect yourself. Verify that the website is secure by looking for the “https:”, where the “s” stands for “secure”, and other trust marks. Make sure your computer is running up-to-date anti-virus, anti-spyware and anti-malware software. Always try to use a credit card, as they offer more protection than debit and prepaid cards, and never pay by wire transfer or gift cards. Additionally, always read the purchase terms and conditions carefully! Understand the refund and guarantee policies before making a purchase, and be on the lookout for hidden fees. •Don’t show up empty handed. Don’t plan on buying tickets or gear outside the venue. Tickets sold by scalpers are often either overpriced or fake, and gear sold outside the gates is also likely to be overpriced or counterfeit. Avoid stress by showing up to the game with a ticket in hand! • Look up your seats beforehand. When purchasing a ticket, make sure you know the section, row and seat number. Look up the seat location before buying the ticket to ensure the seats exist, they’re in a location you like and the view isn’t obscured. Know what you’re buying to avoid possible disappointment when you arrive. If you encounter fraudulent tickets or counterfeit goods, let BBB know! You can file a complaint on a business here at bbb.org, and report a scam to BBB Scam Tracker at bbb.org/scamtracker.

BUSINESS

En 2016, consumidores reportaron cerca de 3.000 quejas sobre los corredores de boletos y los vendedores de boletos de eventos con BBB. La causa principal era problemas con reembolsos e intercambios. Consumidores alegan ser incapaces de obtener reembolsos (incluso si los eventos fueron cancelados o pospuestos), ser cobrados cargos extras y recibir boletos fraudulentos. Puede ser divertido vestirse en ropa del equipo para el juego, ¡pero sólo si es auténtico! Consumidores reportaron cerca de 500 estafas de productos falsificados al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB en 2016, y 53% involucraron una pérdida monetaria. Comprar ropa en línea es especialmente difícil. En 2016, consumidores reportaron alrededor de 2.800 estafas de compras en línea al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB. Consumidores reporten comprando un artículo de un sitio web desconocido y nunca recibirlo. • Tenga cuidado con boletos fraudulentos. Sólo compra boletos de negocios confiables. La mejor manera de comprar es a través del sitio web oficial de Las Grandes Ligas de Béisbol (MLB), LasMayores.com. Si se agotan y usted tiene que comprar en un intercambio de boletos en línea o de un corredor de boletos, tenga cuidado. Desafortunadamente, el fraude de boletos puede ocurrir cuando usted compra boletos del mercado secundario. Busque todos los negocios en bbb.org y echa un vistazo a su Perfil de Negocio de BBB antes de hacer una compra. • Tenga cuidado con mercancía falsificado cuando comprando ropa. La mejor manera de asegurarse de que los sombreros y camisetas que está comprando son auténticos es haciendo sus compras en la tienda oficial de MLB, mlbshop.com. También puede encontrar ropa licenciado de MLB de revendedores autorizados. Si

no está familiarizado con el negocio o el sitio web, asegúrese de buscarlo en bbb. org antes de hacer una compra para evitar una estafa de compra en línea. Conozca las señales de que mercancía es falsificado: es mucho menos costoso que los artículos de las tiendas oficiales, el sitio web tiene errores ortográficos o gramaticales, o los logotipos y los colores de la mercancía no son correctos. • Sea inteligente cuando haga una compra. Cuando usted está haciendo una compra en línea, siempre protéjase. Compruebe que el sitio web es seguro a través de buscando el “https:”, donde el “s” significa “seguro”, y otras marcas de confianza. Asegúrese de que su computadora está ejecutando actualizado software de anti-virus, antispyware y anti-malware. Siempre trate de pagar con una tarjeta de crédito, porque ofrecen más protección que las tarjetas de débito y tarjetas prepagos, y nunca paga por transferencia bancaria o tarjetas de regalo. Además, siempre lea los términos y condiciones de compra con cuidado. Entienda las políticas de reembolso y garantía antes de hacer una compra, y esté atento para cargos extras. • No venga al juego desprevenido. No debe planear en comprar boletos o ropa fuera del estadio. Los boletos vendidos por los scalpers son a menudo demasiado costosas o fraudulentas, y la ropa vendida fuera de las puertas también es probablemente demasiado costoso o falsificado. Evite el estrés y venga al juego con un boleto en su mano. • Echa un vistazo a los asientos antes de comprarlos. Cuando comprando un boleto, asegúrese de que tiene números de sección, fila y asiento. Busque la ubicación del asiento en línea antes de comprar el boleto para asegurarse de que los asientos existen, están en un lugar que te gusta, y la vista no está oscurecido. Sepa lo que está comprando para evitar desilusión cuando llegue al juego. Si usted encuentra boletos fraudulentos o mercancía falsificado, ¡dígalo a BBB! Usted puede presentar una queja sobre un negocio en bbb.org, y reportar una estafa al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB en bbb. org/scamtracker.

EL TRATAMIENTO DE LA MIGRAÑA: MÁS FORMAS DE COMBATIR EL DOLOR algunos pacientes no pueden tolerar. “Un medicamento puede tener el potencial de acarrear efectos secundarios sistémicos porque es ingerido y metabolizado. También puede tener diversos efectos secundarios que varían de una persona a otra”, explica Hoffmann. “Los pacientes han estado en busca de tratamientos alternativos para la migraña. Como estos dispositivos no son ingeridos ni metabolizados como la terapias farmacológicas, no necesariamente tienen el mismo tipo de efectos secundarios”. La Administración de Alimentos y Medicamentos de los Estados Unidos

FDA ¿Creyó que no había ninguna esperanza para tratar los dolores de cabeza de su migraña? No se dé por vencido. Los adultos que no toleran muy bien los medicamentos para la migraña podrían encontrar alivio en un dispositivo de prescripción médica. La Administración de Alimentos y Medicamentos de los Estados Unidos (FDA, por sus siglas en inglés) ha permitido la comercialización de dos de estos dispositivos: el Estimulador Magnético Transcraneal Cerena y el dispositivo de neuroestimulación eléctrica transcutánea Cefaly. Los estudios clínicos han demostrado que ambos dispositivos son eficaces, y plantean riesgos y efectos secundarios mínimos cuando se usan según las instrucciones de la etiqueta. Los dolores de cabeza de la migraña se caracterizan por un intenso dolor pulsante o punzante en una zona de la cabeza, acompañados de náusea o vómito, y una susceptibilidad a la luz y el sonido. Cuando no se atiende, una migraña puede durar entre 4 y 72 horas. Según los Institutos Nacionales de la Salud (NIH, por sus siglas en inglés), 12 por ciento de los estadounidenses (unos 37 millones de personas) padecen migrañas. Estos dolores de cabeza debilitantes afectan tanto a niños como a adultos, y las mujeres son tres veces más propensas a padecerlos que los hombres (alrededor del 18 por ciento de las mujeres sufren migrañas). Alrededor de un tercio de las personas con migraña experimentan un aura —disturbios visuales tales como ver puntos, luces que parpadean o un punto ciego— que precede el comienzo del dolor de cabeza. Dispositivos para el tratamiento de las migrañas Michael Hoffmann, ingeniero biomédico de la FDA, dice que hay una gran necesidad de recurrir a estos dispositivos no invasivos debido a que muchos fármacos contra la migraña tienen efectos secundarios que

El uso del Cerena está indicado para cuando el paciente siente venir el dolor de cabeza o una vez que comienza. Éste es el primer dispositivo médico cuya comercialización fue permitida por la FDA para aliviar el dolor de cabeza ocasionado por una migraña precedida de un aura. ¿Cómo funciona? Usando ambas manos para sujetar el dispositivo contra la nuca, el paciente presiona un botón que libera un pulso de energía magnética muy corto (de menos de un segundo) para estimular la corteza occipital (la parte posterior del cerebro que procesa la información visual). La tecnología del Estimulador Magnético Transcraneal (TMS) del dispositivo Cerena ha sido estudiada por bastante tiempo ya, pero no fue sino hasta hace poco que se autorizó para usos clínicos específicos. Cefaly es el primer dispositivo de neuroestimulación eléctrica percutánea (a través de la piel) o TENS, por sus siglas en inglés, al que la FDA concedió la comercialización para usarse antes de la aparición de una jaqueca, como un tratamiento preventivo para los dolores de cabeza de la migraña en pacientes de 18 años de edad en adelante. Los pacientes pueden usar Cefaly todos los días, y el tratamiento ha demostrado reducir el número de días en los que las personas experimentan migrañas. La tecnología TENS se ha usado como tratamiento para el dolor en general, pero ésta es la primera vez que se ha autorizado como una medida preventiva para la migraña. El dispositivo portátil de baterías Cefaly se asemeja a una diadema de plástico para la frente. El usuario se pone un electrodo (un parche) en la frente, conecta la diadema de plástico al electrodo y el dispositivo emite entonces una corriente eléctrica para estimular uno de los nervios largos de la cabeza (el nervio trigémino), el cual se ha relacionado con las migrañas. “Es una terapia de tiempo fijo: funciona por 20 minutos y se apaga automáticamente”, explica Hoffmann. Los efectos secundarios de ambos dispositivos incluyen irritaciones de la piel, malestar, somnolencia, mareos y dolor

en el lugar de uso. Se informó con poca frecuencia de estos problemas y fueron resueltos pronto, aclara Hoffmann. En una encuesta telefónica en la que participaron más de 2,000 usuarios europeos del Cefaly, 95 por ciento no tuvo queja alguna sobre el uso del dispositivo. No obstante, la seguridad y eficacia de estos dispositivos no ha sido establecida entre ciertos grupos, como los niños, las mujeres embarazadas y las personas con marcapasos. Limitaciones de los medicamentos para la migraña Hay muchos medicamentos para reducir el dolor y los síntomas de la migraña. “Aunque estos medicamentos para la migraña son bastante eficaces, no a todos les vienen bien. Algunos pueden causarte cansancio, somnolencia o mareos; otros pueden afectar tu proceso mental; y algunos medicamentos contra la migraña pueden ocasionar defectos de nacimiento, de modo que las mujeres embarazadas no pueden usarlos”, advierte el Dr. Eric Bastings, M.D., neurólogo de la FDA. “Es importante tener en cuenta que los dispositivos médicos también tienen algunas limitaciones, y que no se ha establecido la seguridad y eficacia del Cefaly y del Cerena entre ciertos subgrupos, incluyendo el de las mujeres embarazadas”. Muchas personas que sufren migrañas frecuentes o intensas pueden tomar

APRIL 7 - 13, 2017 medicamentos preventivos, entre ellos betabloqueadores como el propranolol. Estos betabloqueadores, que reducen la frecuencia cardiaca, se utilizan principalmente para tratar afecciones cardiacas. “Estos medicamentos no son para los pacientes de migraña que padecen asma, ciertos problemas pulmonares o una frecuencia cardíaca lenta”, advierte el Dr. Bastings. Consejos para los pacientes de migraña Las migrañas con frecuencia son subdiagnosticadas y subtratadas. El Dr. Bastings recomienda a los pacientes que le cuenten a su prestador de servicios de salud sobre sus dolores de cabeza, y que consulten con un médico especializado en migrañas si no consiguen el alivio adecuado. “Los médicos deben estar al tanto de los medicamentos aprobados para la migraña y de las opciones de tratamiento alternativas”, agrega. Estos dispositivos presentan otra alternativa de la que los pacientes pueden hablar con su médico, señala Hoffmann. “Ahora los pacientes tienen más opciones, y ojalá que puedan encontrar la que mejor les funcione”.

Consejos de cocina para niños del Chef Justin Haga participar a los niños en la compra, preparación y cocción del maíz. Para que puedan ayudarle en la cocina, necesita saber lo siguiente: —Busque maíz dulce fresco con chala. Se debe sentir y ver húmedo y grueso, con los granos gordos y brillantes. La seda del maíz debe ser algo pegajosa, brillante, rígida y húmeda. —Para pelar: Jale la chala hacia abajo para ver los granos. Continúe hasta retirar la chala y la seda. —Para retirar los granos: Sostenga por la punta la mazorca de maíz bien derecha, con el lado más grueso apoyado firmemente sobre la mesa. Tome un cuchillo afilado y corte hacia abajo, quitando los granos de maíz. Tenga cuidado de no cortar demasiado profundo y quitar partes de la mazorca.

What Is “Environmental Justice” and How Is It Under Assault in the New Administration?

Some consider the lead contamination of the water supply of predominantly African-American Flint, Michigan to be an environmental justice issue. Photo Credit: Victoria Pickering, FlickrCC.

Roddy Scheer & Doug Moss EathTalk Environmental justice is defined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as “the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin or income, with respect to the development, implementation and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations and policies.” In layperson’s terms, it means making sure specific groups of people don’t bear a disproportionate burden from potential and existing environmental threats. Traditionally, we think of situations like the siting and construction of a pollutionspewing factory in or near a low-income minority community as an example of an environmental injustice. Some recent examples ripped from the headlines include the lead contamination of the water supply of predominantly African-American Flint, Michigan, and the siting of the potentially hazardous Dakota Access Pipeline adjacent to sacred and ecologically sensitive Standing Rock Sioux tribal land. “The federal government has recognized for decades that air and water quality are especially poor in low-income areas and communities of color, and some of that imbalance stems directly from government permitting decisions, such as where to allow the dumping of toxic materials,” reports the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), a leading environmental advocacy non-profit. Environmental justice has been a hot topic lately as it relates to who bears the brunt of climate change impacts. According to EPA research, city dwellers and the poor are among the Americans most likely to suffer from climate change. NRDC points

out that 24 to 27 percent of urban AfricanAmericans, Latinos and indigenous people in the U.S. are now living below the poverty line, compared with only 13 percent of urban whites—meaning that minority groups are at the greatest risk from the heat waves, bad air, stronger storms and other negative consequences of a warming climate. The federal government has been working on environmental justice issues since at least 1992 when then-President George H.W. Bush created a White House office dedicated to “environmental equity.” Bill Clinton took up the mantle when he assumed the presidency in 1994 and issued Executive Order #12898 calling for the federal government to identify and address “disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental effects of its programs, policies and activities on minority populations and low-income populations.” Clinton’s order created the Interagency Working Group on Environmental Justice to coordinate and oversee implementation of the rule across different federal agencies, and spawned the Environmental Justice Small Grants Program, which has awarded upwards of $24 million since then in funding to more than 1,400 community-based and tribal organizations working in communities facing environmental justice problems. But that all is likely to change now that Donald Trump has proposed slashing the EPA’s overall budget by $2 billion and cutting funding for environmental justice programs specifically by 78 percent, from $6.7 million to just $1.5 million. “These cuts are a direct attack on lowincome communities and communities of color everywhere who are on the front lines of toxic pollution,” says NRDC’s environmental justice head Al Huang.

A NIGHT FOR SELENA, A NIGHT FOR GOOD TIMES Sonido Clash brings back its celebration of Selena for a third time

or another their historical experiences are shared. In the case of Selena Tribute Night 2016, Fernando remarks, “well, we weren’t expecting to have a line all the way down the street. And then to see that, people were even asking if there were any extra tickets or any opportunities to get in and that was something we wouldn’t of expected to have for the second one but it shows the need for events that are representing our icons and I think the things that we learn too, naturally. People pass the word on but we also have to find spaces where there aren’t.” Another one of the differences that caught the group by surprise was just how much all walks of life love Selena. “There was a different generation that we saw, not the young 21 crowd, but people who were probably alive when Selena was, they showed up. That was a surprise and maybe this year because we have a different selection of artists maybe we’ll have other groups in San José that will come out”, says Perez. The Selena Effect

seemingly timeless legacy lives on 22 years after her death.

If you weren’t able to make it to last year’s Selena Tribute Night thrown by Sonido Clash (SC), This is what you missed: Eclectic music, an energetic Selena impersonator, Selena look-a-like contest, great vendors and of course, the photo booth. “People love to get their photos taken,” says SC's Fernando Julian Perez, and it's so true.

Fernando Julian Perez and Quynh-Mai Nguyen were around to be the voice of the collective this time around, reminiscing about their last few months, as well as the now and future.

As it stands, the San José based collective of musicians, videographers, artists and community collaborators throw some of the South Bay’s most infectiously fun parties, and although they continue to grow and are starting to branch into community activism and providing curriculum for community members, they still like seeing people just plain have fun. In its third year, the annual Selena Tribute Night has gone through various tweaks in its two initial outings. Now, SC feels they’ve figured out a good recipe for this DIY festival celebrating the Latina Tejano Music Queen, Selena Quintanilla, whose

Perez, and Nguyen both wear a ton of hats as is the SC do it yourself way of life. Nguyen is the resident artist, Perez the videographer, producer, and both are organizers, just to name a few of their duties. Both are committed as is the rest of the group, to bringing the unique Selena night to fans and putting on the best show they possibly can.

The initial draw to the tribute night is the idea of being able to centralize one's admiration for the music of the singer all night long. And it happens through artists playing their own interesting takes on her songs, as well as the aura of what she encapsulates through the night. Being there is what a 'Selena vibe' feels like. Perez says, “basically, that’s why we selected these folks (artists) too, to give another representation of sounds, so it wouldn’t be just catered to the Latino community it also exposes people to the hip hop sounds, or electronic music future world sounds.” Nguyen also feels that the connection through generations to Selena adds a hook to the party line. “I had my friend who teaches middle school, she has one student who loves Selena and when she heard that there was a Selena tribute, she was like ‘oh, I wish I could go!’ and my friend said ‘oh yeah, but it’s in a bar’. Just the fact that being able to tap into different generations with someone whose iconic like Selena, that speaks volumes. And knowing in the beginning with the first event, that was really any other Selena tributes but after the second, now third, we heard of so many popping up, which is really cool.” Perez adds, “like recently there was a Selena cruise? People on a boat!”

Changes

Tribute Night

When asked about their experiences from year to year, there's a lot of back and forth about how amazing it is to expand and the people that discover them through word of mouth. At the core of these to and fro's is the idea of art and culture that unites many generations, and that in some way

This year the group hopes to get as many people that want to come into the door off the bat. With more space at the Back Bar they might not have to turn people away as they did last year. Perez says, “we had to turn people away and that sucked, but we have a fire code we have to obey. We want people to have it as another memory, definitely

people that have never been to a Sonido Clash event. So hopefully they become supporters of Sonido Clash, because we will continue to bring artists.” Nguyen says, that the opportunity for these events to help artists collaborate and show their talents is one of the greatest achievements in building these parties and networks and creating fans. “It’s not just strictly music, it’s like art incorporated in a venue where most people just come to dance to the music. But when you have vendors there, it’s showing that there’s that community support behind it. Sonido Clash, it’s a community, not just music but art. For me I hope that this just keeps going. It’s like a tradition.” On the social media side, the fans are ready and the optimism is high. “Every year I see on the comments, “oh, we can’t miss out on this year, we gotta go” and tagging saying, “are we gonna go?”. It’s nice to see that, it’s nice to see the excitement. Because when the night actually like happens and you see everybody dressed up, dressed in Selena costumes, it’s just fun”, says Nguyen. The Future Recently SC was invited to CSU Monterey Bay to speak to students about the merits and work behind being entrepreneurs. “What we were able to do is take our passions, and maintain our work, but give these young people the idea that they can also go forward and change the communities you live in, and go back to the communities you live in”, says Perez. He also states that that experience in Monterey helped highlight the idea that they are moving forward, and beyond just he music scene. “We’re not just some party crew, not just some event, we’re doing presentations and innovating stuff, we’re working with nonprofits to present payday lending campaigns and beyond the music as well we’re trying to become leaders in the community to support other campaigns. So you might see us someday, not just in the club, but presenting to young high school students about the opportunities that they have.” And until their next endeavor, this next SC event will be in a club. Nonetheless it will be a knowledgeable and good time focusing on the many elements that made Selena so loved; like her music, her fashion, and her effortless sense of self. There will be dancing, there will be laughter and probably some tears when the right song hits. But it's all good, anything for Selena(s). More info at sonidoclash.com. Selena Tribute Night takes place Saturday April 15th at Back Bar SoFa in San Jose CA. Show begins at 9pm. Sold out online, but tickets will be available at the door.

Advocates for Calif. Immigrants Warn: Be Prepared Suzanne Potter California News Service

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Advocates for California immigrants are speaking out, educating people on their options in light of the Trump administration's increased enforcement actions. On the campaign trail, Trump had threatened to revoke Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), the program that allowed temporary work permits for about 750,000 people brought to the United States as children, but it remains in place so far. However, enforcement officers now can detain undocumented people with no criminal history aside from immigration-related offenses. Mariam Kelly, senior immigration attorney and DACA program supervisor for Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto, said the best way people can protect themselves is to explore all their legal options. "I cannot stress enough, they can get a legal screening from a qualified immigration attorney," she said. "I'm going to say that maybe 10 percent of my clients are eligible for some other form of relief, other than DACA." Some people may qualify for special immigrant juvenile status, for a "U-Visa" as a victim of a

crime, or can petition to stay with relatives who are U.S. citizens. However, Kelly warned that it is unwise for anyone with a prior criminal or immigration-related offense to apply for DACA or to try to renew it. Attorney Martha Ruch, an Equal Justice Works Emerson Fellow and staff attorney for the group Asian-Americans Advancing Justice-Los Angeles, said everyone on U.S. soil has rights, even those who are undocumented - including protections against unreasonable searches and self-incrimination. "So, it's crucial that everyone know that if they're being questioned, they should not reveal their immigration status to immigration officials and - to a large extent - to police," she said, "and to say that they are asserting their right to silence and will not sign anything until they consult with an attorney." Ruch said once a person is detained, having an attorney familiar with his or her case can make a big difference. She also advised people at risk of being detained to make an emergency plan, designating someone to care for children or elderly parents. Other tips: Insist on seeing a warrant before allowing officers to search a home, car or business. Also, a person should never carry foreign identification papers.

Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law.

Carlos Aylagas is a young Salvadorean actor who has started to venture in the world of international cinema and acting. Carlos was born in San Salvador, El Salvador, and from a very young age had dreams of being an actor, which he has accomplished. He began his acting training in Los Angeles, and with the passing of time doors have opened for him, commented the actor. During the month of May, we can watch him act on HBO in a short film titled “2500 Kilometers”. This short was filmed in Guatemala, where he was chosen as one of the main characters. This miniseries explores current issues such as domestic violence and how this pushes many Central American women to try to emigrate to the United States and other countries, fleeing from the violence that is currently happening in several countries there. Carlos also told us that he is a co-author of a book titled “El país que viene”, which was published in El Salvador, and that he will participate in the movie “La Palabra de Pablo”, which is currently in the process of production. He has ventured in theater in other countries as well, Mexico being one of them. As a Salvadorean, he says he is worried about the deforestation and gang violence that shakes his country, El Salvador. The short “2500 Kilometers” received an award at a foreign movie festival in Australia. Carlos is taking his first steps in the world of movies and is counting on support no only from his fellow countrymen but also the Latin community in general, to whom he sends a warm greeting with the advice to always fight for your dreams, because with faith and confidence in oneself, everything is possible, emphasized the actor.

Also, he can be found on IMDb as Carlos Aylagas. Photo Credit: Carlos Aylagas

IMDB ADDS 'F-RATING' TO RECOGNIZE WOMEN IN FILM “Below Her Mouth” Is One Of The First to Receive Rating

IMDb (Internet Movie Database), the world’s largest movie website, has adopted a new 'F-rating' to highlight films that are directed by women, written by women, and/or pass the Bechdel test – meaning they feature a conversation between women that isn't about men. The accreditation, which aims to support and promote women and redress the imbalance in the film industry, has so far been added to over 21,000 titles on the website, making it easier for users to search for films and TV programs which feature women in a significant role. Among the films credited are “Girl on the Train", which was directed by Erin Cressida Wilson, "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," which was written by Anita Loos, and 2016's "Ghostbusters," which has 36 scenes which pass the Bechdel test. A film, TV program or book is said to pass the Bechdel test if it features scenes in which two or more women or girls talk to each other about something other than a man or boy. April Mullen’s "Below Her Mouth", which will be released on April 28th by Gunpowder and Sky Distribution, is among those to receive a triple-rating for featuring a female director,

writer and lead. The film, whose writer, director, producer, and cinematographer are women, was shot with an all female crew and stars two female leads. In "Below Her Mouth", Jasmine (Natalie Krill) is a successful fashion editor living with her fiancé, Rile (Sebastian Pigott). On a night out in the city with her best friend, she meets Dallas (Erika Linder), a roofer recently out of a relationship. Surprised by the confidence with which Dallas pursues her, Jasmine turns Dallas down – but can’t get her out of her head.  When Jasmine finally succumbs, the two women embark on a steamy affair that forces them both to reevaluate their lives. IMDb becomes the latest film organization to feature the rating, which was created in 2014 by Holly Tarquini, director of the U.K.'s Bath Film Festival. It has so far been adopted by 40 film festivals across the U.K., including London's Barbican. Women accounted for just 3.6 percent of all directors and 4.4 percent of all writers in the top 250 films of 2015, according to statistics from f-rated.org, the website set up to promote the organization.

The film “Below Her Mouth” is one of the first that carries the newly created IMDB 'F-Rating', which signifies the film has been created or emphasizes women. Photo Credit: IMDB

INTERNET PRIVACY 2017 | WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW and IoT applications. But, as with all things, there’s a dark side. Thinking about potential abuses of this type of data-driven AI should give one pause.

yesterday, you probably don’t need it today. That said, I only access the Internet through VPNs, and I encrypt communication that I would not like to see on WikiLeaks.

Should We Have Internet Privacy Laws? Should we have Internet privacy laws? What should we protect? Are privacy laws antithetical to a free and open Internet? Or would a well-reasoned set of privacy rules provide a level playing field and fertile ground for commerce and communication? Under this administration, it looks like whatever laws are in place will remain in place. Whatever proposals can be nullified seem to be fair game. For those who supported the previous administration’s worldview, it’s time for a new strategy.

I do not endorse any of the following products, but I pay for and use some of them. They all work as well as consumer-grade systems can work. If you feel like you will be safer using a VPN or encrypted email, here’s a short list of options:

It’s a Bigger Topic – What You Can Do

Shelly Palmer There has never been a reasonable expectation of online privacy, and there never will be. Regardless of what you may have recently heard about joint resolutions or nullifications, nothing has changed. Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have always had the right to use your data as they see fit, within a few Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) parameters. This has not changed. And you have given FANG (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, and Google) the right to use your data as they see fit (with a few privacy policy exceptions and within the few aforementioned FTC and FCC parameters). So regarding online privacy, for all practical purposes, absolutely nothing has changed. What About S.J.Res.34? Update: On April 3, 2017, the president signed S.J.Res.34, a joint resolution that nullified the FCC’s “Protecting the Privacy of Customers of Broadband and Other Telecommunications Services” rule. But the FCC rule never went into effect. So net/net, nothing has changed.

On the other hand, you pay for Facebook and Google with your data, so as the cliché goes, “YOU are the product,” and you should not have any expectation of privacy (other than what’s written in the user license agreement or Privacy Policy of the respective sites). As for Amazon and Netflix, you pay with both cash and data. But you can rest easy. Both Amazon and Netflix only use your data internally. While they offer insights to certain vendors, sponsors, and suppliers, the amount of actual data they make available to 2nd or 3rd parties is negligible. Short Term In the short term, all of this is meaningless. ISPs don’t make money selling your data (although they could), and most of them do not yet have an effective way to sell advertising. They make money by charging you for Internet access. FANG literally lives on your data. Without it, FANG would be severely disabled. But you already grant them the rights, so nothing has changed.

There’s more at stake than online privacy. The concepts of Net Neutrality and a free and open Internet and a set of reasonable rules that promote investments and reward investors are not mutually exclusive. We should strive for consensus. Regardless of your personal preferences, you should contact your elected officials and let them know your thoughts. When discussing online privacy, remember the Internet not only transports your smartphone and web browser data, it also transports your banking data (from bank to bank), your health records (from doctor to hospital), autonomous vehicle data, Internet of Things data, municipal sensor data (such as water meters and weather data), and every other type of data that we create by interacting in a completely digital world. VPNs & Encrypted Email Since the joint resolution passed, I’ve had a remarkable number of questions about Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) and email encryption, as if suddenly there’s a new need for these services. (BTW: We’ll discuss online privacy vs. online security in another article. They are not the same thing.) If you didn’t need a VPN or encrypted email

Long Term What Does This Mean? One side will tell you that the FCC rule was overly burdensome for ISPs because they would have had to obtain opt-in permission from each customer to use the customers’ data. The other side will tell you that the FCC rule was absolutely necessary because ISPs have access to 100 percent of your online activity while FANG can only see what you do on their respective sites. Most of the explanations from elected leaders failed to mention that you pay hard currency to your ISP for access to the Internet. Therefore, you would expect some privacy options (even if those options were offered at a premium price).

Long term, things will change. There are many probable futures. One of them is not the passage of the previously proposed privacy rules by the FCC. What has changed is the method we will use to draft and legislate privacy policy. It is a non-trivial matter and is, and will continue to be, a topic which inspires vigorous debate. In a data-deregulated environment, ISPs are free to develop all kinds of new capabilities as the technologies become practical. We might see “intelligence layers” between us and the networks. Hypothetically, this type of AI would know where you are, where you are likely to be, what you like to do, when you like to do it, etc. In practice, it would be used to sell you stuff. It could also be useful for autonomous vehicles

Encrypted Email • ProtonMail • Virtru What We Really Need Data is a very valuable asset. How valuable? Have a look at the combined market cap of FANG. They, and most online businesses, transform the value of our data into their wealth. Which raises the question, should they own the data we create, or should we? If we create it, shouldn’t it be ours? I can argue both sides. Perhaps you can too. Let’s start the discussion immediately!

Gracias. Agradecemos a todos los que han permanecido a nuestro lado mientras hemos trabajado para hacer lo correcto en Wells Fargo. Sabemos que tienes muchas opciones para tus servicios bancarios y por eso sentimos que servirte es un privilegio. Acepté el cargo de Director Ejecutivo de Wells Fargo hace seis meses, luego del acuerdo de septiembre de 2016 por nuestras prácticas de ventas para el consumidor. Mi primera medida fue ofrecer una disculpa a nuestro equipo, a nuestros clientes y al público en general por los errores cometidos por nuestra compañía. En ese momento, asumí el compromiso de construir un mejor banco y volver a ganarnos tu confianza. A pesar de que todavía falta mucho trabajo por hacer, ya se han logrado avances que quiero compartir contigo: • Hemos tomado muchas medidas para hacer lo correcto para nuestros clientes. A la fecha, hemos reembolsado aproximadamente $3.2 millones a aproximadamente 130,000 cuentas bancarias para el consumidor y de pequeños negocios. También hemos aceptado un acuerdo preliminar sobre la demanda colectiva por $110 millones que se emplearán para continuar reembolsando a clientes. Y para cualquier cliente cuyo crédito podría haber sido afectado por la apertura de cuentas no autorizadas, nos comprometemos contigo a hacer lo correcto. • Hemos realizado cambios para asegurarnos de que las necesidades de nuestros clientes siempre estén primero. Hemos eliminado las metas de ventas de productos y cambiado la manera en que le pagamos a nuestros representantes bancarios para el consumidor. También hemos invertido en nuestra gente, aumentando el salario de los miembros del equipo en puestos de principiantes en todo el país. • Hemos fortalecido nuestra ética y gestión de riesgos. Esto incluye la creación de una nueva Office of Ethics, Oversight, and Integrity (Oficina de Ética, Supervisión e Integridad), agregando protecciones para que toda persona se sienta segura al realizar reportes a nuestra Ethics Line (Línea Ética), y ampliando la capacitación de nuestros gerentes y representantes bancarios para que puedan responder mejor. • Y nos hemos exigido mayor responsabilidad. Hemos cambiado el liderazgo dentro de la Banca Comunitaria y despedido a ejecutivos vinculados con las prácticas de ventas inapropiadas. Nuestra Junta Directiva canceló todos los bonos de 2016 para ocho altos ejecutivos, integrantes del Comité Operativo previo al 1 de noviembre de 2016, entre los cuales me incluyo. Y hemos cambiado la estructura de nuestra Junta Directiva para separar los roles del Presidente de la Junta y el Director Ejecutivo. Ser un mejor banco, es corregir los errores y comprometernos a encontrar nuevas y mejores maneras de servir a nuestros clientes. Incluso mientras escribo estas líneas, seguimos introduciendo nuevas maneras de prestar servicios, desarrollar a nuestro personal y gestionar los riesgos. Dicho lo anterior, quiero asegurarte que volver a ganarnos tu confianza sigue siendo nuestra primera prioridad. A corto plazo, nuestra Junta Directiva emitirá los resultados de su investigación independiente. Continuaremos actualizándote acerca de nuestros esfuerzos a medida que procesemos esos hallazgos. Una vez más, gracias por permanecer con Wells Fargo mientras construimos un mejor banco. Atentamente,

Timothy J. Sloan Director Ejecutivo y Presidente Wells Fargo & Company Para obtener más información acerca de nuestros esfuerzos de reconstrucción, te invito a visitar www.wellsfargo.com/compromiso © 2017 Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. Todos los derechos reservados. Miembro FDIC.
