OPINION

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

APRIL 28 - MAY 4, 2017

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR Most people living in America know little about the International Workers' Day or "May Day". For many others there is an assumption that it is a holiday celebrated in state communist countries like Cuba or the former Soviet Union. Most Americans don't realize that "May Day" has its origins here in this country and is as "American" as baseball and apple pie. "May Day" stemmed from the pre-Christian holiday of Beltane, a celebration of rebirth and fertility.” Every spring season brings opportunities to observe the rebirth of many living plants and animals. Today we see tens of thousands of activists unconsciously embracing the ideals of the Haymarket Martyrs (Forest Park Cemetery, Chicago, Illinois) and those who established "May Day" (May First) as an International Workers' Day. Ironically, "May Day" is an official holiday in 66 countries and unofficially celebrated in many more, but rarely is it recognized in this (American Democratic) country where it began.

Over one hundred years have passed since that first "May Day". In the earlier part of the 20th century, the US government tried to curb the celebration and further wipe it from public memory by establishing "Law and Order Day" on May 1. Many parallels exist between the events of 1886 and today. We still have locked out steelworkers struggling for justice. We still have voices of freedom behind bars as in the cases of Mumia Abu Jamal and Leonard Peltier. We still have the ability to mobilize tens of thousands of people in the streets of a major city to proclaim "THIS IS WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE!" at the WTO and FTAA demonstrations.

"Words stronger than any I could write are engraved on the (Chicago's) Haymarket Monument: THE DAY WILL COME WHEN OUR SILENCE WILL BE MORE POWERFUL THAN THE VOICES YOU ARE THROTTLING TODAY. Truly, history has a lot to teach us about the roots of our radicalism. When we remember that people were shot so we could have the (5-day 8-hour work week); if we acknowledge that homes with families in them were burned to the ground so we could have Saturday as part of the weekend; when we recall 8-year old (child labor) victims of industrial accidents who

marched in the streets protesting working conditions and child labor only to be beat down by police and company (mercenary) thugs, (do) we understand that our current condition cannot be taken for granted - people fought for the rights, (respect) and dignities we enjoy today. There is still a lot more to fight for. The sacrifices of so many martyred people can not be forgotten or we'll end up fighting for those same gains all over again. This is why we (should and must) celebrate "May Day" (on May 1, 2017).” (Source: The Brief Origins of "May Day" By Eric Chase) Presently the working class needs this perspective to fully understand what certain billionaires' oligarchy plans may be. It was my daughter, Mary M. Rustia, a teaches of general science and technology, who informed me that CTA (California Teachers Association), as a professional union, had designated May 1, 2017 as a DAY OF ACTION---MAKING A DIFFERENCE. Again, I highly recommend googling the CTA website to learn about the many issues being advocated on behalf of CA Public School systems. Listen especially to the presentation of CA's Senate President pro tempore KEVIN DE LEON'S SPEECH which succinctly describes that CA, as the 6th largest global economy, owes its current standing upon

its 'public schools' which develop the informed educated residents having critical thinking skills. These residents are the most diverse population in America; the most creative and innovative. CA has the best public school system in this nation, if not the world. It's centers of achievement and excellence at Hollywood and Silicon Valley thrive using these skilled 'knowledge workers' trained by CA's public schools. Student's parents, as legal guardians of their kids, must support local school district by participating; by providing their constructive feedback commentary; by being active and committed supportive members of their local PTA (Parent=Teacher Association). At PTA meetings, involved and committed parents may learn about matters such as The Common Core Curriculum; College entrance requirements; testing schedules (SAT's), College admission application deadlines; etc. All these issues are essential to the guidance of their kids as students who learn their ethical, religious, and moral values at home from their parent's example and instruction. The resolution of many economic and social disparities require educated, informed residents. This Trump Administration must not be allowed to short-change the future of

our children, especially those who are disadvantaged and marginalized. Celebrate May 1, 2017 as "May Day" with the recollection of the many issues resolved in the past by the working class. They established many of those humane job site working standards. Today the main issue to be addressed by working class folks is that of the inequity of wealth distribution. A living wage needs to be established which is based upon Abraham Maslow's Hierarchy of Human Needs. Our earth contains all the resources which could enable diverse peoples to live together in peace and harmony... if we can redirect greed, control, power, and influence towards the acceptance and practice of 'societal stewardship' which focuses upon taking care of the needs of “We, The People” who must begin to speak up...to insist on receiving a fair share. That is what "May Day" is all about. Now is the time to begin your informed interest and participation coupled with renewed appreciation for past achievements taken for granted today. Resolve to celebrate on "May Day" to honor by remembering all those martyrs who struggled for the civil rights, justice, respect and dignity enjoyed by the working class today.

LOS PRIMEROS 100 DÍAS José López Zamorano La Red Hispana Es verdad que el ejercicio de evaluar los primeros 100 días de un nuevo gobierno es caprichoso. Algunas de las mayores iniciativas de presidentes previos han requerido tiempo y esfuerzo, por lo que cualquier juicio para determinar el éxito o fracaso de una nueva administración con ese corto rasero, corre el riesgo de resultar irrelevante. La primera gran iniciativa legislativa del nuevo gobierno, la reforma del sistema de salud, fue vista como una derrota temprana para los republicanos, en particular porque develó las divisiones internas del partido. Tener control de la Casa Blanca, además de mayorías en ambas cámaras del Congreso, es útil pero no garantía de gobernabilidad. A quienes argumentan que el presidente no ha hecho más que firmar órdenes

ejecutivas –28 en total-- pero no ha promulgado ninguna ley mayor, la Casa Blanca responde que a George W Bush le tomó hasta junio de su primer año firmar una legislación importante, a Bill Clinton y Ronald Reagan hasta agosto, a Richard Nixon un año y a Jimmy Carter más de 220 días. Una encuesta muestra sin embargo que el juicio del público es inapelable y es directamente proporcional a las expectativas de cambio que le fueron ofrecidas en la campaña presidencial. Aunque una abrumadora porción de los votantes del presidente se mantiene leales y pacientes, la realidad es que su nueva administración ha generado una impresión más desfavorable que favorable por el público estadunidense en general, de acuerdo con un sondeo de The Washington Post. En uno de los temas centrales de su

campana, migración, la caracterización compartida por muchos en la comunidad legal y de organizaciones independientes, es la de un estado de confusión y preocupación, en especial en asuntos delicados, como el futuro de los cientos de miles de “dreamers” que se acogieron a DACA. A la luz del temor que despertó la detención y/o deportación de algunos dreamers, el presidente salió al paso dejando en claro que no tienen de que preocuparse, pero el procurador Jeff Sessions asegura que toda persona que se encuentra ilegalmente en Estados Unidos, es sujeta a deportación. Aunque las dos primeras órdenes ejecutivas del presidente para inmigrantes de países de mayoría musulmana siguen estancadas en los tribunales, el número de cruces fronterizos se desplomó a niveles históricos, sin que se haya construido un solo metro del polémico muro en la frontera con México.

Es de hacerse notar que ninguno de los legisladores de estados fronterizos, sean republicanos o demócratas, apoyan aprobar dinero para el muro en el actual presupuesto, y los demócratas amenazado con paralizar el gobierno, de ser necesario, si la Casa Blanca insiste en obtener dinero para el muro o para la llamada fuerza de deportación. Estados Unidos llega así al umbral de los primeros 100 días en medio de las mismas divisiones que se hicieron patentes en las elecciones. Es verdad que es prematuro emitir un juicio definitivo, pero los próximos días, semanas y meses serán claves para determinar si este país se encamina hacia un acercamiento que permita resolver los grandes retos pendientes o si se mantiene en la ruta de una mayor polarización.

5 WAYS THE ARTS ARE GOOD FOR KIDS yet conclusive, that children who engage with music at an early age develop neural connections that non-musical children don't develop. Specifically, musically engaged children have heightened perception of tonal changes and improved "auditory processing"-the ability to understand speech, which is important for school success.

David Murphey Child Trends Young children love to draw, paint, sing, and dance, and these activities play an important role in their early development. The benefits of arts participation persist into adolescence and beyond. Here are five reasons why the arts are important for children. Arts participation is associated with numerous positive academic and personal outcomes. These include higher grades and test scores, enrollment in post-secondary education, attainment of a bachelor's degree, and higher levels of literacy and civic engagement. Secondary-school students who participate in the arts are more likely to achieve a degree, and tend to continue their artistic habits into adulthood. Arts participation also promotes children's social-emotional development by fostering positive social skills, regulation of emotions, openness to innovation, and connections with new people and ideas. Art instruction can encourage school participation and attendance and lead to greater student self-esteem and motivation. These positive changes can improve overall classroom climate as well. The benefits of arts participation may be greatest for children who are economically disadvantaged. The favorable outcomes associated with high levels of arts participation are particularly strong for students from families with lower socioeconomic status. For example, arts participation lowers cortisol levels (a biological marker of stress) for low-income preschoolers. Young people from poor communities also tend to benefit

from having one or more projects that strengthen their sense of self and connect them with peers who share their interests. These "identity projects" can include starting a business or organization, building a skateboard ramp-or participation in the arts. Arts organizations can positively influence children's neighborhoods. There is some evidence, for example, that the presence of arts organizations (including performance facilities, galleries, and artists' workspaces) helps reduce a neighborhood's concentrated poverty and attract other creative and high-tech enterprises. Research in New York City has shown that neighborhoods with more arts activity have lower felony rates and more effective local schools. The presence of youth-serving organizations in a community is also associated with lower levels of crime and neighborhood violence. Children's arts participation varies by age, gender, and educational status. In general, children participate in fewer arts activities as they grow older. For instance, 48 percent of 8th graders report being involved in school music or other performing arts, but only 37 percent of 12th graders do. Girls are much more likely than boys to engage in these activities in 8th, 10th, and 12th grades. Students are more likely to participate in school arts activities if their parents have attained higher degrees, and if they plan to attend a 4-year college themselves. Music, in particular, may give children a brain boost. Young people who have had music training demonstrate higher cognitive skills across disciplines. There are indications, not

San José, Calif. – The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation has awarded the City of San José $200,000 in funding to explore how to develop and implement smart technology in cities in responsible and equitable ways. The support was part of a $1.2 million commitment from Knight Foundation announced on Friday April 21st to help six cities, including San José, explore IoT (Internet of Things) application in their cities.   The City of San José will use this funding to support IoT strategic planning to inform decisions around where to make IoT investments, IoT infrastructure financing, smart technology assets regulation, and how to create private sector partnerships that facilitate the preservation of public assets and data privacy for our residents.    “As part of our Smart City Vision, San José is committed to seeking opportunities to apply new technologies, like Internet of Things, that will help us improve city services and increase the quality of life for our residents,” said Sam Liccardo, mayor of San José. “I want to thank Knight Foundation and the Netgain partnership for their commitment to helping local municipalities use technology in ways that produce significant public benefit.”   “As cities increasingly use the Internet of Things to reduce costs, increase sustainability and improve services, we need to be acutely aware of its impact — both good and bad,” said John S. Bracken, Knight Foundation vice president for

technology innovation. “This support aims to help create a model and guidelines for the thoughtful and responsible use of IoT, linking its development to the public’s benefit.” This award is part of Knight Foundation’s participation in NetGain, a partnership with five leading foundations – Knight Foundation, Ford Foundation, MacArthur Foundation, Mozilla Foundation, and Open Society Foundations – to explore public interest technology issues. San José was the only California city to receive a grant.   Insights gathered from IoT and smart technology can help reduce traffic congestion, improve emergency response times, conserve water and make life more streamlined for both the City and our residents. This research will help the City evaluate the IoT landscape and develop a strategic path forward.   “Cities around the country are assessing how to effectively and responsibly deploy complex IoT technology while protecting privacy,” said Shireen Santosham, Mayor Liccardo’s Chief Innovation Officer. “We are glad to have the opportunity to be a trailblazer in this space to inform IoT efforts in cities across the country.”   For more information on the City of San José’s Smart City Vision please visit http://www.sanjoseca.gov/index. aspx?NID=5289.

KIDNEY ACTION DAY

kidney disease. Doctors use blood and urine tests to measure kidney function. The progression of Chronic Kidney Disease is measured in five stages. Stage 1 means the kidney is working at 90 percent or more of capacity -- this is normal but there may be something amiss with the structure. As kidney function decreases, patients move through stages 2 and 3. . By the time the disease has reached stage 4, physical symptoms become more apparent and medical intervention may be necessary. In stage 5, the patient can no longer survive without dialysis – a process that slowly removes wastes and extra f luid to help keep a person’s body chemistry in balance.

health issues, to genetic conditions to injuries.

Finding out you have Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) can be scary. A patient may feel overwhelmed knowing that they are losing their kidney functioning. Gaining knowledge about CKD and what options are available will help patients feel a little bit more in control of their life and what to expect.

Chronic Kidney Disease effects AfricanAmericans at a rate 3.5 times the general population. Hispanics have Chronic Kidney Disease at 1.5 times the rate of non-Hispanics.

Symptoms of kidney failure are: swelling of ankles, hands and face; feeling tired; trouble sleeping; loss of appetite; nausea and vomiting; and itching. Patients may ignore these symptoms because they may attribute them to other conditions. If a patient gets diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease, they should know that they are not alone and there are options to help live life even with kidney failure. Statistics show that: • One in seven Americans has Chronic Kidney Disease, according to the National Institutes of Health; • Almost half a million are on dialysis; • And another 193,000 live with a functioning transplanted kidney. With Kidney Action Day coming up on April 29, it seems a great time to take a look at kidney disease, your risks and treatment options. High blood pressure and diabetes are the two major causes of kidney disease, with almost half of patients having one or the other underlying condition. Other causes range from complications from other

The rate of Chronic Kidney Disease rose sharply in the 1980s and 1990s before peaking in 2006. Numbers have declined slightly since. Still, Medicare spending for patients with chronic kidney disease -- ages 65 and older -- exceeded $50 billion in 2013 and represented 20 percent of all Medicare spending in this age group. Clearly, Chronic Kidney Disease is a major health concern. The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs, each about the size of a fist. They help keep the body chemistry in balance at all times. Kidneys make urine to get rid of wastes and extra water, helps control blood pressures, helps build red blood cells, and balances minerals. A diagnosis of Chronic Kidney Disease means the kidneys are damaged and can’t filter blood the way they should. For those who know they will need dialysis, patient education is the key to choosing the right course of care. Patients are encouraged to receive their Dialysis Options Education while in Stage 3 or 4; this is to avoid an unnecessary emergency start of dialysis treatments. More knowledge about dialysis allows patients to be able to make informed decisions about how they want to live their life with

Hemodialysis-the process of removing, filtering, and returning blood to the bodycan be performed in a clinic setting where patients receive treatment three times a week between 3-4 hours each session. Hemodialysis can also be done at home on a more convenient schedule. For some patients, that may include having the blood filtered overnight while the patient sleeps. There is also another home therapy option called Peritoneal Dialysis, which filters using the body’s natural membrane. A tube, placed in the patient’s belly, removes waste and extra f luid. Kidney transplant may also be an option for those who meet the Kidney Transplant Centers’ waitlist criteria. In the Bay Area, the average time a patient will be on the waitlist is between 5-9 years, unless they have a living donor. Many patients may be concerned of the cost of dialysis treatments. Patients diagnosed with End Stage Renal Disease and who have earned enough work credit, regardless of age, can be eligible for Medicare. This will help pay for 80 percent of the costs. A supplemental insurance is advised to pay for the remaining 20 percent. The

APRIL 28 - MAY 4, 2017 clinic social workers can assist patients by directing them to resources to help with insurance issues. The individual decision depends on the patient’s medical needs, what kind of lifestyle the patient wants, and the advice of the nephrologist. Here in the South Bay, we’re home to Satellite Healthcare, a major dialysis organization that offers services for patients seeking treatments in-center or at home. Satellite Healthcare is the leader among providers of home therapies. Naturally, we’re a little biased. We think Satellite’s non-profit approach that puts patients first is the way to go. The company is also a leader in nephrology research and hosts a series of events in which doctors and patients can inf luence the direction of care. Patient satisfaction and quality of care statistics suggest Satellite is on the right path. Of course, avoiding kidney disease is the best course. Diet is important at every stage. Look to lower salt intake. Managing protein intake – both the quantity and type – should be done in consultation with a registered dietician. Generally, a heart healthy diet that’s rich in fish, lean meats, fruits and vegetables is preferable. Limiting phosphorous and potassium may also be important. If you or someone you love does develop Chronic Kidney Disease, become an active participant in making all care decisions. One size does not fit all. Choices for the type of dialysis treatments need to be made with the patient’s well-being in mind. We at Satellite Healthcare are here to help at every step of the journey. Juliet Famadico holds a master of social work degree and is a PATHfinder with Satellite Healthcare in San Jose. Reach her at famadicoj@SatelliteHealth.com.

KIDNEY ACTION DAY IN SAN JOSE IS SATURDAY, APRIL 29. Satellite Healthcare, a San Jose-based company that is a leading provider of dialysis therapies for kidney disease patients, is the lead sponsor for a fun day of kids’ events and health screenings. There will be cooking demonstrations, fitness activities and prize giveaways. It all takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the San Jose Flea Market, 1590 Berryessa Road.

Tara Chklovski, founder and CEO of science education nonprofit Iridescent, recalled her youth in India, and her father, a pilot, being the catalyst to her interest in tech. “He was my first point of entry, so instead of playing with Barbie dolls, because we couldn’t afford them, I played with engines. And so, that was very cool because after that I wasn’t afraid of anything.” Lucy Flores, described by Longoria as a “recovering politician”, currently has the role of VP of Public Affairs at cross-cultural media company mitú. Her story was especially inspirational to hear, as she had previously been Nevada’s first elected Latina legislator, but not before some struggles. “I actually ended up on juvenile parole by the time I was 15, I had a lot of problems growing up in a very low income community in northeast Las Vegas. I didn’t get my GED 'til I was 2.”

Arturo Hilario El Observador On Tuesday April 25th, 2017, Google was the host of the launch of TECHNOLOchicas 2.0 collaborative project, which has a goal in emphasizing the STEM model of learning to young Latinas across the country. The launch included many guest speakers, nearly all of them women, who are involved in STEM careers in tech, entertainment, business, and science. Leading the discussion was keynote speaker Eva Longoria, whose foundation,The Eva Longoria Foundation, helps Latinas achieve economic mobility through different approaches, including STEM programs. Sponsored by Televisa, NCWIT (National Center for Women & Information) and others, the day was filled with guest speakers whose focus was letting people know, especially the young Latina girls present in the audience, that no matter their circumstances it was possible to become an engineer, vice president, or NASA scientist if they took advantage of STEM learning. The speakers represented organizations and companies such as Televisa, Univision, Qualcomm and YouTube/Google. From twins that work at NASA, to a MIT graduate who ended up in the maledominated world of video games and eSports, there was a definite aura of female accomplishment and empowerment in the air, and rightly so. Each speaker had a unique background and entry point into their STEM career and throughout the day they elaborated on the how and why of choosing a career in tech. The TECHNOLOchicas (or 'tech girls') were the ten Latinas at the event who represent the program nationwide. Their roles as guides to young girls throughout the United States encapsulates the need for STEM resources in regions where it is lacking. Diversify One of the biggest themes in the forum was that of lack of access and how to circumvent

the hurdle in education. Longoria added, “people always ask me 'why Latinas?' Well I am one, for starters, but if you look at the future success of the United States, and how it’s growing, the fastest growing demographic is the Latino community. If you look within the Latino community the people who are doing the hardest work, the CEO’s of the home, are the women.” Longoria's belief, which is shared by many others in this country, (and unsurprisingly by everyone at the event), is to help this fast growing Latina demographic, and provide a successful workforce for the future of the country. The lack of minority STEM professionals over the years has motivated organizations like Longoria's, as well as gave way for movements like TECHNOLOchicas to fill the gap of information and resources to Latinas. In regards to the lack of STEM visibility to minorities, Longoria said, “we still encounter this. You cannot be what you cannot see, that is why today is so important, because we’re going to hear from amazing women who are doing the work, who are being role models.” One of the TECHNOLOchicas, Madelyn Tavarez, an Android Engineer at Pinterest, said that she didn't realize that customizing her MySpace profile for fun by manipulating the html code would lead to computer science. “I was really into coding back then, but I didn’t know that’s what I was doing. Once MySpace, you know, died, I completely forgot about coding because I didn’t know you could do it on platforms. I didn’t know that programming was computer science, I didn’t make the connection.”

From there, Flores attended community college, then got into law. After her turn in politics, she became a political commentator for mitú during the latest presidential elections, and was almost immediately kept on as a VP in her current role. All through the event, Longoria spoke to the

audience, but focused her message on the young girls occasionally whispering to each other and excitedly capturing her on their smartphones. “I want all you young people here to listen and to learn from the women, and learn from their experiences. And then I encourage you as you succeed in your careers, because you will, that you find a conference like this and you get on camera and you tell somebody else, ‘you can do it, look what I did. You’re gonna be successful just like me’.” One final note. Televisa Foundation Executive Director Alejandro Villanueva came up at one point to talk about the lack of STEM in novelas, and in Spanish television programs in general. And so he said, “I guess one of my favorite phrases is 'learning to code is like having a superpower', which I kept thinking over and over. So we decided to create what we call, 'la cereza de pastel', the cherry on the cake. We're beginning to work on a new TV/web series where four young Latinas in middle school enter a technology competition.” The name of this TECHNOLOchicas.

After meeting computer science students from Istanbul she was put onto the idea of getting into engineering. “Then I realized that this was what I was doing from 14-16, and that it actually was for me!” The lack of access was also present in the industry professionals' stories, which more than anything helped to prove that it was, and still is a problem, but one that can be overcome.

SILICON VALLEY COMIC CON 2017: NEW AND IMPROVED San Jose-based comic con unveils a broader scope, fun for locals

Eduardo Hilario El Observador As many of you will remember, last year was the first opening weekend of the Silicon Valley Comic Con, or SVCC for short, and it was absolutely fantastic, though there wasn’t much else to the Con other than the main event at the convention center. This year, however, things were much more expansive and there was more to do and a lot more to see. Here I will describe my experience and give you a list of all the new things and cool stuff I managed to see at this wonderful convention. My SVCC experience started with seeing a cacophony of cosplayers, people dressed up as their favorite sci-fi/comic book/video game characters. As usual, there were a couple of people dressed up as the fourth wall breaking “merc with a mouth”, Deadpool. There were also a lot of people dressed up as Jedi from the Star Wars series, most notably, Rey from “The Force Awakens”. The art of cosplaying was feverishly on display this year with all the well designed and sophisticated cosplays, and a few simple ones that were still unique and very creative. I managed to catch one of the many guest panels that were going on and what better one to catch than listening to Buzz Aldrin, one of the few remaining people to have landed and walked on the surface of our moon. In an iconic moment for humanity, he and Neil Armstrong were the first to touch base on our orbiting satellite when they lead the Apollo 11 mission in 1969. During the panel the marvel of experience explained where his love of space began and how he has laid the groundwork to land us on Mars. It was quite an inspirational speech he gave as he mentioned how he wants the next generation to strive for greatness and reach Mars and beyond the furthest stars in the

future. One of the newest editions to the convention was the free group of events at the beer garden, which took over portions of Market Street and the whole of Cesar Chavez Park. It was here where anyone without a SVCC pass to the main convention could go and have good time. We managed to catch the main proprietor of the event, Steve Wozniak, the Co-founder of Apple Inc., strolling around on a Segway waving hi at people that caught his attention. He was possibly checking out the many food vendors, entertainment opportunities and live bands that were available in the area, Including a Ska band and a local band called, “Nu Ethnic”, to whose whole set I stayed for (which was fantastic). One of the improved areas of the con was the gaming area which contained all the classics like “Q’bert”, “Pac-Man”, “Super Mario Brothers”, etc. as well as all the fighting games you could ask for, while the gaming tribute band, “Super Soul Brothers” played soulful and jazzy version of favorite game and film/TV themes. I was playing some “Galaga” while in the background I heard a jazzy version of the theme song from “Game of Thrones”, improving the whole experience tenfold. All in all, the convention was a lot bigger and more accessible this year with a lot more variety in terms of things to do and to see. Hopefully, next year is even bigger then this year and an equal to the titan that is the San Diego ComicCon, with more things to see and maybe some exclusive previews of all the wonderful things happening in the world of comics, film, television and video games, or as some people call it, “nerd culture”.

Aunque se encuentra apenas en el décimo año de un programa a 30 años (la recaudación del impuesto comenzó a mediados de 2006), VTA ha logrado resultados significativos para cumplir con las metas de la Medida A, entre ellos: • Extender BART a las ciudades de Milpitas, San José y Santa Clara del Condado de Santa Clara - la extensión a Berryessa actualmente muestra avances superiores a lo programado y dentro del presupuesto, con la apertura prevista para finales de 2017. • Extender y mejorar el servicio de tranvía - se está estableciendo una nueva línea de Mountain View a Alum Rock para conectarse con Caltrain y la nueva estación BART de Milpitas para integrar a BART de VTA a la Extensión de Silicon Valley Berryessa. Se han completado varios proyectos integrales, como el proyecto de Doble Vía de Mountain View y el Proyecto de Vías de Resguardo de Santa Clara (Pocket Tracks). • Ampliar el servicio de Caltrain y electrificar el sistema desde Palo Alto hasta Gilroy - VTA se ha asociado con Caltrain en la implementación de Palo Alto a la estación Tamien.

COUNTY OF SANTA CLARA SECURES HISTORIC DECISION HALTING FEDERAL DEFUNDING OF “SANCTUARY JURISDICTIONS”

SANTA CLARA COUNTY, CALIF. – In a historic ruling issued Tuesday April 25th, U.S. District Court Judge William H. Orrick granted the County of Santa Clara’s request to temporarily enjoin President Trump and his administration from enforcing an Executive Order provision that would withdraw all federal funding from the County and jurisdictions across the country deemed “sanctuary jurisdictions.” The County of Santa Clara was the first jurisdiction in the country to seek this emergency relief based on the immediate harms and coercion caused by the President’s January 25, 2017 Executive Order. The City and County of San Francisco subsequently sought a similar injunction.   Judge Orrick held that “the Counties have demonstrated that they are likely to succeed on the merits of their challenge to Section 9(a) of the Executive Order, that they will suffer irreparable harm absent an injunction, and that the balance of harms and public interest weigh in their favor.”  He explained that “the Government’s new interpretation of the Order is not legally plausible” and granted the County’s motion for a nationwide preliminary injunction. “The politics of fear has just suffered a major setback, thanks to Judge Orrick and our judicial branch, along with the support of cities and counties across the country,” said Dave Cortese, President of the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors. “Millions of people across the country can continue to receive essential medical care, go to school and remain active members of their communities without fear that their local governments are being forced to work against them, rather than for them.” “We’re fighting for the United States Constitution and we succeeded after the Trump Administration tried to do an end run around it.  The court’s decision is a win for the neediest people in our nation— seniors in need of food, foster youth in need of shelter, and children who need medical

care,” said Santa Clara County Supervisor Cindy Chavez. “We will continue being a welcoming, safe, and diverse community.” Despite federal government threats of defunding, the County of Santa Clara has not changed its immigration-related policies, including those that ensure that County resources are not used for federal immigration enforcement purposes. “Today’s decision is a historic affirmation of the U.S. Constitution’s core principles—that the President cannot usurp powers not given to him, and that the federal government cannot use federal defunding to coerce local governments into becoming federal immigration enforcers,” said County Counsel James R. Williams.  The Office of the County Counsel, joined by pro bono counsel Keker, Van Nest & Peters LLP, will seek to ensure that the temporary relief granted—obtained due to the immediate harms the County faced—is made permanent.

AVANZAN PLANES PARA UNA PROTESTA EN EL “MAY DAY” Brett McPherson/Cynthia Howard Public News Service SANTA FE, N.M. – Entre las comunidades rurales trabajadoras de Nuevo México está organizándose un día de acción y resistencia este Primero de Mayo, día de los derechos laborales y la justicia social. La conmemoración internacional conocida como “May Day”, recibirá un impulso de participación este día, de parte de las familias de la clase trabajadora, que sienten el impacto del actual clima político, tanto a nivel estatal como federal.

Los inmigrantes conforman hasta el 10 por ciento de la población de Nuevo México y se concentran principalmente en la fuerza laboral rural según informa Emmanuelle “Neza” Leal, coordinador de comunicaciones en la organización Somos Un Pueblo Unido. Neza dice que el “May Day” es una oportunidad que estos trabajadores de la Tierra de Encanto muestren su valor y poder, sin importar su estatus migratorio. “Los inmigrantes son parte esencial de Nuevo México y especialmente de sus comunidades rurales. Así que ese día, ya sabes, nos levantamos para proteger no sólo a nuestras familias, sino al mismo futuro de nuestras comunidades rurales en el estado.” El “May Day” nació en Chicago, en 1886,

donde una huelga general de sindicatos comerciales prepararon el camino para el día laboral de ocho horas. También se le conoce como Día Internacional del Trabajador, en el que se celebran manifestaciones, marchas y demostraciones –y este año incluso con recorridos que saldrán de escuelas y de lugares de trabajo. Neza Leal dice que estos eventos públicos pueden representar un riesgo de que se persiga a los migrantes indocumentados, aunque muchas comunidades de Nuevo México cuentan con políticas de santuario vigentes, y han prometido no salirse de su ruta para ejecutar las políticas federales de deportación. Leal dice que ni a él ni a su comunidad les desanima esa presión política. “Los trabajadores inmigrantes de Nuevo México tienen mucha experiencia en la lucha por sus derechos y defendiendo a sus familias. Y así en el “May Day”, nos alzamos con nuestros aliados para decir ‘Ya basta!’” A la organización Somos Un Pueblo Unido se le unirán la AFL/CIO y otras organizaciones, y Leal dice que espera cifras récord este año en los eventos de todo el país. En Nuevo México se planea conmemorar el “May Day” en Albuquerque, Clovis, Gallup, Hobbs y Santa Fe. Más información en SomosUnPuebloUnido. org y en ProgressNowNM.org.

“This decision is a critically important step in ensuring that a constitutionally infirm Executive Order is ultimately struck down,” said Cody Harris, a partner at Keker, Van Nest & Peters. During the hearing on the County’s motion, Judge Orrick thanked amicus participants for their involvement in the case. All fifteen amicus briefs filed, representing more than 240 individuals and entities, supported the County of Santa Clara.  Amici included the State of California; cities, counties, sheriffs and police chiefs from around the United States; school districts representing over one million California students; civil and immigrant’s rights groups; unions; law scholars, non-profit service providers, and technology companies. The County’s lawsuit challenges the constitutionality of the Executive Order, arguing that it violates the separation of powers, the Fifth Amendment’s Due Process Clause, and the Tenth Amendment.

CAN SELF-DRIVING CARS EVER REALLY BE SAFE?

The Transition to Fully Autonomous Vehicles In April 2016, Ford, Alphabet, Lyft, Volvo Cars, and Waymo established the SelfDriving Coalition for Safer Streets to “work with lawmakers, regulators, and the public to realize the safety and societal benefits of self-driving vehicles.” They have their work cut out for them. Self-Driving Cars Need to Be Trained

Shelly Palmer

Analysts estimate that by 2030, selfdriving cars and trucks (autonomous vehicles) could account for as much as 60 percent of US auto sales. That’s great! But autonomous vehicles are basically computers on wheels, and computers crash all the time. Besides that, computers get hacked every day. So you gotta ask, “Can self-driving cars ever really be safe?” The Short Answer No. Self-driving cars can never really be safe. They will be safer! So much safer that it’s worth a few minutes to understand why. Humans Are Very Dangerous First and foremost, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 90 percent of all traffic accidents can be blamed on human error. Next, according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, nearly 80 percent of drivers expressed significant anger, aggression, or road rage behind the wheel at least once in the past year. Alcoholimpaired driving fatalities accounted for 29% of the total vehicle traffic fatalities in 2015. And finally, of the roughly 35,000 annual traffic fatalities, approximately 10 percent of them (3,477 lives in 2015) are caused by distracted driving. Remove human error from driving, and you will not only save a significant number of lives, you will also dramatically reduce the number of serious injuries associated with traffic accidents – there were over 4.4 million in the United States during 2015. Data Begins to Make a Case In May 2016, a 40-year-old man named Joshua Brown died behind the wheel of a Tesla cruising in Autopilot mode on a Florida divided highway. He was the first.

Rage against the machine quickly followed, along with some valid questions about whether Tesla had pushed this nascent technology too fast and too far. Everyone expected the accident to be the fault of a software glitch or a technology failure, but it was not. The NHTSA investigation found that “a safety-related defect trend has not been identified at this time and further examination of this issue does not appear to be warranted.” In other words, the car didn’t cause the crash. But there was more to the story. The NHTSA’s report concluded, “The data show that the Tesla vehicles crash rate dropped by almost 40 percent after Autosteer installation.” In reality, while Mr. Brown’s death was both tragic and unprecedented, the investigation highlighted a simple truth: semiautonomous vehicles crash significantly less often than vehicles piloted by humans. What Do You Mean by “Safe”? The same NHTSA report mentioned 99 percent of US automakers had agreed to include Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) systems in all new cars by 2025 with the goal of preventing 28,000 crashes and 12,000 injuries. The AEB program is limited to rear-end crashes, but there are a host of other semi-autonomous features in the works, and by the numbers, all of them will make us safer. That said, this is very new technology, and regulators will need to define what they mean by “safe.” Must our autonomous vehicles drive flawlessly, or do they just need to be better at it than we are? The RAND Corp think tank says, “A fleet of 100 cars would have to drive 275 million miles without failure to meet the safety standards of today’s vehicles in terms of deaths. At the time of the fatal May 2016 crash, Tesla car owners had logged 130 million miles in Autopilot mode.”

In January 2017, Elon Musk tweeted that a software update featuring Shadow mode was being pushed to all Teslas with HW2 Autopilot capabilities. This enabled the car’s autonomous driving AI to “shadow” its human drivers and compare decisions that it (the AI) would make to the decisions that were being made by the human driver. Think of it as self-driving AI in training. The auto industry and several tech giants are working as fast as they can to make autonomous vehicles mainstream. To speed the process, they may need to share some data. Will they? My guess is, absolutely. Fear and Assessment of Risk Some people are afraid to fly. When you point out that flying is the safest form of travel by several orders of magnitude, the response is always some version of, “But when a plane crashes everyone

dies.” Human beings are not very good at assessing risk. If you don’t have a gas pedal, a brake pedal, or a steering wheel, and your car crashes, you will feel helpless and out of control. And you may die. But, by the numbers, tens of thousands of people will not die or be injured because semi-autonomous driving and ultimately fully autonomous driving will be much safer than pure human driving. Some will counter that it’s cold comfort if you’re the one who is killed or injured, no matter how rare it is. I agree. But, by the numbers, if you were going to make a policy decision for our society at large, you have to agree that saving tens of thousands of lives and millions of injuries is a worthy endeavor. I’m pretty sure that before 2030, if you are under the age of 25 or over the age of 70, you are going to need a special permit to manually drive a car. I’m also pretty sure that you will not be allowed to manually drive on certain streets and highway lanes because you will pose too great of a threat to the caravans of autonomous vehicles on those roads. With any luck, the fear-mongers and bureaucrats will get out of the way, and we will all be much safer sooner. Photo Credit: Pixabay

SOMOS AC T I V I S TA S DE LA SALUD DEL PÚBLICO Cuando un grupo de gente de gran corazón en Silicon Valley se ocupa de usted, ocurre algo importante: surgen muchas innovaciones saludables.

Aquí hay incubadoras que desarrollan vidas diminutas, y con el uso de codificación se descubren secretos genéticos para mejorar la salud. Para cuidar la salud de los indigentes empleamos procesos digitales. E instruimos de manera ingeniosa a uno de cada cuatro doctores de todo el valle.

¿A poco no es eso lo que esperaría de este lugar de innovaciones? Sin importar de qué lado del valle esté, si es un sabelotodo técnico o un sabelotodo agrícola, nuestros sabelotodo de salud están aquí para cuidarlo y para asegurarse que todos tengan beneficios de salud.
