Esta asociación entre la base local Marquez Brothers International y el recinto ferial del condado de Santa Clara completa tal vez la mayor instalación de su tipo en el norte de California. La Plaza será la sede de una gran variedad de eventos mexicanos multi-culturales y tradicionales incluyendo el entretenimiento regional. El primer espectáculo está programado para el domingo, 19 de mayo, cuando Joan Sebastian se presentará en un espectáculo PM 3. Senator Yee plans to place ban on 3-D printed guns in California Senator Leland Yee of San Francisco has put forth legislation that would prohibit the use and manufacturing of 3-D printed firearms. 3-D printers are a new technology that can be used to download and manufacture three-dimensional blueprints and build them out of pieces of plastic. Yee does believe that the 3-D printer capabilities are of “amazing possibilities” but the use of them to create gun parts that are untraceable and anonomous poses a risk to the public. The first fireable design, a design known as “The Liberator” has already successfully fired a .380 caliber bullet. Apoyo al Seguro Social es especialmente fuerte entre los afroamericanos e hispanosUn informe publicado por la organización National Academy of Social Insurance (NASI) encontró que los afroamericana e hispanos apoyan solidamente al seguro social. “La verdadera prueba de apoyo de los estadounidenses al Seguro Social es su disposición a pagar por ello”, dijo Jasmine Tucker, analista ejecutiva de políticas en NASI y autora del informe. “Los estadounidenses en todos los grupos raciales y étnicos dicen que no les importa pagar impuestos del Seguro Social, porque el programa ayuda a millones de personas y porque ellos y sus familias se benefician del mismo”.

Prohibited Persons Program SACRAMENTO Attorney General Kamala D. Harris applauded Governor Jerry Brown for signing a bill that provides $24 million for a Department of Justice program, that takes firearms out of the hands of individuals who are prohibited by law from owning them. “California is leading the nation in a common-sense effort to protect public safety by taking guns away from dangerous, violent individuals who are prohibited by law from owning them,” said Attorney General Harris. “These funds will allow the Department of Justice to increase the number of agents conducting these smart and effective operations. I commend Governor Brown for signing this critical public safety investment into law.” Senate Bill 140, which takes effect immediately, will allow the Attorney General to hire

Chavez Solar Impulse- The solar airplane of Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg, successfully launched the “Clean Generation” initiative by completing the first leg of the 2013 Across America mission – the first crossing of the United States by a solarpowered airplane capable of flying day and night. Pilot Bertrand Piccard took off from Moffett Airfield in Mountain View at NASA’s Ames Research Center (CA) at 06:12 AM PDT (UTC-7) and, after a 18 hours and 18 minutes flight from southern California, over the Mojave National Preserve and into Arizona, he landed the HBSIA prototype at 00:30 AM MST (UTC-7) at Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport.

This is the first of five legs that will lead the project’s co-founders, Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg, to alternately fly the solar airplane coast-to-coast from California to New York. By crossing the United States André Borschberg and Bertrand Piccard are launching the “Clean Generation” initiative – a global awarenessraising movement advocating for greater investment in innovative technologies for sustainable energy production and use. Thousands of Supporters worldwide have joined the movement and their names will be virtually brought by the pilots across America with use of a USB key – and with every stop over more names will be added. All

36 additional agents for the Armed and Prohibited Persons program (APPS). It will enable the Department of Justice to increase enforcement operations in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento, Fresno and Riverside. California is the only state with a program like APPS, which identifies people who previously purchased one or more guns, but are later prohibited from owning them. A person becomes prohibited if he or she is convicted of a felony or a violent misdemeanor, is placed under a domestic violence restraining order or is determined to be mentally unstable. Senate Bill 140, by Senator Mark Leno, appropriates $24 million to the Department of Justice, from a fund created by fees paid by gun owners at the time of purchase to hire additional agents and support staff. Upon taking office in 2011, Attorney General Harris added 10

agents to the program, making a total of 33, in order to increase the number of guns confiscated from prohibited persons. Over the last two years, DOJ agents have investigated nearly 4,000 people and seized nearly 4,000 weapons, including nearly 2,000 handguns and more than 300 assault weapons. In the first three months of 2013, agents have collected 461 firearms and 23,080 rounds of ammunition. The APPS database crossreferences five databases to identify those who legally purchased handguns and registered assault weapons since 1996, with people who are prohibited from owning or possessing firearms. The database was completed in November 2006, and the first statewide sweep was conducted in 2007.

OPINION

WHICH ONE: TERESA ALVARADO or CINDY CHAVEZ?

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR

Beginning May 6, 2013 the Registrar of Voters will have mailed out official ballots to some 72% of the registered voters residing within Supervisor District 2, whose seat is vacant due to the resignation of George Shirakawa, Jr. It’s an important factor to consider that currently the Board of Supervisors has no elected woman even though 52% of the resident population throughout the county are women. It would be a good thing for District 2 constituents to elect a woman because the county deals with $4.2 billion in resources which are mainly allocated to support services for public safety & security, transportation, education, the needy, elderly, mental health, social and medical services. These are all matters which require the tender touch and perspective of a woman. District Two residents need to know that this opportunity to elect a woman was created by the accurate investigative reporting of the San Jose Metro, an independent locally owned newspaper published by Dan Pulcrano. There are seven candidates for this vacant seat, however, Alvarado and Chavez, seem to be the front-runners today.   TERESA ALVARADO has degrees in environmental technology, civil engineering and management (SJSU and Tufts University). She has worked for NASA, headed the Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley, co-founded Latina Coalition of Silicon Valley, and currently is Communications Manager, Santa Clara Valley Water District. Her job experiences have been in for-profit, non-profit, and federal government or-

ganizations. She was raised in San Jose’s East Side Community and still has family ties in the East Sude Community. Alvarado has shown her commitment to her community by: a) Providing scholarships encouraging women to attend college after having had their families; b) Programs to control childhood obesity; c) Promoting science, technology, engineering and math (STEM); d) Championing parks, open space and trails; e) Informing the community about the importance of a child’s first five years; and f) Honoring families for their dedication to community service.   Teresa has proposed a reform agenda which addresses the current need for a county government which is accessible and transparent. Her proposals include: a) Publishing online calendar for all county elected officials; b) Disclosure of all communications seeking to influence county policy; c) Appoint an independent citizens task force to propose a new Sunshine ordinance; d) Have an ‘Integrity Unit’ charged with investigating any improprieties brought up by whistleblowers; e) Schedule Board meeting during evening hours to permit more citizen engagement/involvement.   An overview of CINDY CHAVEZ’s personal experiences reveals she was elected to the San Jose City Council and was ‘Vice-Mayor’ (1998-2006). Chavez: led the Strong Neighborhoods Initiative (Redevelopment funds); Children’s Health Initiative; Brought new jobs by expanding commercial office and retail space and bringing BART to San Jose; and Championed disclosures to increase government transparency and accountability.  Chavez is currently Executive Director, Working Partnerships USA and former Director, South Bay La-

bor Council, Chavez led the successful efforts to increase San Jose’s minimum wage and to stabilize county funding for the Children’s Health Initiative. Chavez supporters include union members whose pensions may be involved in any assessment of unfunded pension obligations. One of the major issues which the County of Santa Clara needs to address in an open and transparent fashion soon is its public employee pension funding. Are there any union pension agreements which have not been properly funded after evaluation by a professioal actuary? Like the City of San Jose, the County must face up to pension payouts compromising its ability to pay for the public services now being delivered. Chavez has a history of being an effective union labor advocate/negotiator. Will Cindy be able to be objective given her long association with labor unions and their political machinery? Here are two Latinas, both well qualified and with a history of local communty activism and advocacy. Hopefully, one will receive more than 50% vote to eliminate the need for a run-off election. More importantly, this election will place the people’s choice on the Board of Supervisors sooner rather than later. Do not under estimate the impact of having a woman included in all supervisor’s deliberations about public policy issues being addressed in this time of restricted resources and limited tax revenues. The best election outcome is getting a large number of District 2 constitutents to vote in their own best interests. Let’s have a fairly contested election. One wherein no one distributes ‘very late negative hit pieces or deploys scam Mail-In-Vote couriers. Let’s keep this election above board.

Letter to the Editor The campaign to fill the vacant District 2 seat on the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors is in full swing with more than a half dozen candidates vying for the seat. The district represents downtown and East SanJose. Former San Jose Vice Mayor Cindy Chavez is running because she wants to help make this city and county a safe and enjoyable place for everyone. Cindy Chavez has been a driving force in Silicon Valley politics, social justice and labor issues for more than two decades. As a two-term member of the San Jose City Council, including serving two years as Vice Mayor, she built a strong reputation as an advocate for improving the quality of life throughout San Jose. She was a leader

in developing cutting-edge community-based programs to address crime, education, small business development, park improvements and neighborhood revitalization. The Democratic Party knows Cindy will work hard to improve public safety, and make sure children have access to health care, and the education they need to compete for the future. The campaign that raised the minimum wage in San Jose to $10 an hour, one of the highest levels in the country, was largely successful because of Chavez’s leadership at the South Bay Labor Council and Working Partnerships USA.   In a city that’s among the most expensive places to live in the coun-

try, tens of thousands of people are now better able to support themselves and their families. Former Vice Mayor Chavez wants to be part of a county government that makes every attempt to engage the public in a meaningful and thoughtful way.   Cindy is the only candidate in the race endorsed by the Democratic Party and every law enforcement organization in the county.   She will work hard to make Santa Clara County a better place for everyone. The special election is June 4th. Sincerely, Steve Preminger, Chair Santa Clara County Democratic Party

Te quiero mamá

Cinthia Rodríguez EL OBSERVADOR Debe resultar súper fácil el imaginar que yo tengo una buena relación con mi madre, porque siento que la menciono demasiado en la mayoría de mis notas de opinión. Ahora me doy cuenta que no tengo una cantidad suficiente de amigos y quizá debería salir a divertirme más a menudo. Estoy bastante segura que todo el mundo piensa que tiene la mejor madre. ¿Adivinen qué? A menos que su mamá sea Rosario Rodríguez, entonces no lo es. “Mi mamá es lo máximo”. Cuando tenía doce años de edad tuve una gran idea, “quería ser vegetariana”, para salvar a los animales de la crueldad a la que son expuestos. Mi madre era lo suficientemente increíble y detallista

para cocinar comidas separadas y prepararme a mí, platillos vegetarianos. Dos años después decidí que quería ser artista. Así que ella me inscribió en una escuela la cual tenía el mejor programa de arte en el distrito escolar. Un año más tarde decidí que quería alcanzar mi sueño de convertirme en veterinaria, así que de nuevo se aseguró que asistiera a un programa médico durante la escuela secundaria. La lista puede seguir y seguir de tanto apoyo que he recibido de su parte. Ella también es muy cariñosa, de mente abierta, divertida y

una gran cocinera. He aprendido a confiar en ella y amarla tal y como ella es. Pero no siempre fue así. Pasamos por un camino muy duro y estoy encantada de decir que esa etapa sucedió ya hace varios años atrás. Ella es todo para mí, y estoy muy contenta de que sea mi madre. Me ha guiado y ha hecho de mí, una mujer trabajadora y honesta, y por eso siempre estaré en deuda con ella. Te quiero mamá. ¡Feliz Día de la Madre! “Y a todas las madres del mundo, felicidades”.

Community Lecture: Luis J. Rodriguez

Arturo Hilario EL OBSERVADOR

looking for new “street soldiers”.

At a theater room in an engineering building at San Jose State University a large drum rang through the walls at the commencement of a community lecture by author Luis J. Rodriguez. He is known for his tales of living and breathing in a gang world: the violence, uncertainty, and 3-dimensional characterization of that lifestyle. The drum circle was meant to represent the spirituality of rising above adversity.

His views on community involvement in empowering youth involved knowledge and artistry. He commented that when someone grows up in an environment full of danger, drugs, and general dismay there is no imagination nor progression in that person. His most famous book, and as it turns out one of the most read books in the audience, “Always Running” ,was written to try to help his son understand the negativity that being in a gang creates. The book, written in 1992, talks about the hardships of poverty, racial oppression and gang life.

For the Thursday May 2nd community meeting, filled to capacity with mostly youth, Mr. Rodriguez spoke about his experiences in gangs and the battle to change himself in order to help the youth that are frequently the target of veteran gang members

Mr. Rodriguez went on to describe the ways in which knowledge can be passed down to those that are involved in gangs, and help

5

them steer away from that lifestyle. He did agree with members of the audience who described situations where family members, and countless others, are born into a life of gang membership. In some of these the parents of the children were active gang members, so it’s difficult to assist those in these situations. His views involved “healing and behavior modification”, which included reconnecting with troubled individuals in order to teach them to change from the gang mentality. After an interesting Q & A with his audience, he concluded with, “In order to be a complete human being you must be a complete artist.” He added, that whatever you are enthusiastic about, “that’s the life you were meant to live. Your passion.”

BUSINESS

Recorte los gastos de su boda Jason Alderman PRACTICAL MONEY Hay varias formas de acotar los costos relacionados con una boda y aun así disfrutar de un acontecimiento memorable. Estas son algunas sugerencias:

algún depósito, pero lo más prudente es llevarse su información de contacto y hacer una pequeña investigación primero. •Abra una cuenta de correo electrónico exclusiva para las comunicaciones con los proveedores de la boda.

•Si va a hacer una gran recepción, use una torta de exhibición más pequeña para la ceremonia del corte y tenga la verdadera torta de bodas guardada en la cocina.

May is Small Business Month: Do You Have What it Takes to Start Your Own Business?

•Sirva vino, cerveza y una especialidad de cóctel.

•Haga un presupuesto y busque precio. Las exposiciones temáticas sobre bodas son una buena forma de conocer a diferentes proveedores y reunir ideas.

•Aprovechará mejor su dinero si se casa en temporada baja –una boda en junio podría costar entre un 20 y un 30 por ciento más que en abril u octubre.

•Considere alquilar o comprar un vestido de novia usado en alguna casa de trajes en consignación o en un sitio especializado de Internet. Haga lo mismo con el atuendo del novio.

•Vaya con algún encargado de la fiesta y con un amigo de confianza que no esté emocional y financieramente comprometido con la boda.

•Las bodas diurnas suelen ser más económicas que las nocturnas.

•Contratar a un disc jockey en lugar de una banda en vivo.

•Una recepción con cena bufé puede implicar un ahorro de U$S15 por invitado en comparación con una cena a la carta.

•Limite la cantidad de invitados de manera de poder interactuar con cada uno.

•Tal vez se sienta presionado por los proveedores para que los contrate o deje

These days, you needn’t be a Gates or a Trump to be successful. The right tools and attitude can make all the difference. (c) mangostock - Fotolia.com (STATEPOINT) Tired of taking orders? Have a great business idea? May, which is National Small Business Month, is a great time to think about starting your own endeavor. But do you have what it takes to do it all yourself? A new survey of business owners, conducted by Deluxe, a provider of marketing services and products to small businesses, concludes that small business owners share many of the same tendencies and even similar personal histories -- a sort of unique DNA that allows them to thrive.

BE PART OF THE SOLUTION TO CREEK POLLUTION

Saturday, May 18, 2013 9am–12pm www.cleanacreek.org (408) 630-2739

For example, when it comes to heredity and actual DNA, 76 percent of small business owners have relatives who owned businesses. And 86 percent are ultra-confident, believing they can do anything they really set their mind to. Most interestingly, the research found a tendency

to try and fail, then succeed. Seventy-seven percent of small business owners surveyed said they would rather learn from failure than never try at all. In time for National Small Business Month, here are some tips for those looking to launch businesses: • Do your research: While starting a business involves risk, you can mitigate some uncertainty with proper research. In fact, seventy-nine percent of small business owners research products before purchasing, according to the survey -- a tendency that far exceeds that of the general population. Have a clear understanding of your market, competitors, expected startup costs, overhead and return on investment. Know who your customer base will be and learn about them. • Build a brand: Powerful branding differentiates a company from its competi-

tors, making it easier for customers to choose that company for business relationships, and allows a company to get referral business. However, don’t wing it yourself on your home computer. A professional design team can help you stand out for the right reasons. • Communicate: Whether you’re providing legal services or you’re a roofing contractor, technology has made it easier for business owners to establish themselves as experts by sharing their knowledge with current and potential customers. Use social media tools to deliver news, offer information and provide deals and promotions. • Optimize: If you build a website will they come? Not necessarily. Text-based content is how Google determines what a site is about. Be sure to add keywords to your title page, page description, meta tags and headlines.

Understanding Financial Aid Award Letters: Compare Costs

(NAPSI) When comparing college costs, one of a student’s first steps should be filling out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Then, students begin receiving back financial aid award letters from the colleges they’ve applied to. These letters outline the estimated cost to attend the school, expected family contribution and financial aid award package, which includes grants, scholarships, work-study, need-based and non-need-based loans. Your financial aid letter may look different this year. Colleges have the option of using the U.S. Department of Education’s new Financial Aid Shopping Sheet for the 2013−2014 award year. Many of the elements contained in this new form are the same as a school’s own financial aid award letter, though the standardized format should make it easier to review elements such as grant and scholarship amounts, net costs, graduation rates, loan default rates, median borrowing and estimated monthly loan payments after graduation.

After you receive either form, here are some next steps:

A credit check is required, but the parent’s debt and current income are not considered.

Determine additional expenses: Consider all funding options including grants, scholarships, institutional awards, Federal Work Study, Federal Perkins Loans and/ or Federal Direct Stafford Loans. Be realistic about your budgeting needs. Borrow only what you need.

Federal Direct PLUS loan for graduate and professional students—This loan is available to graduate and professional students and can cover up to 100 percent of remaining education-related expenses. A credit check is required, but the student debt and current income are not considered.

Explore additional financing options: Tuition payment plan— Instead of paying your tuition bill in one lump sum each semester, if offered by your school, you can enroll in this plan to make smaller, manageable installment payments. This plan can be used on its own or combined with financial aid, including student loans. Federal Direct PLUS loan for parents—This loan is available for parents of dependent undergraduate students. This loan can cover up to 100 percent of remaining eligible education-related expenses.

Private (or alternative) student loans—These loans are made available to students through banks and other private lenders. These loans can typically cover 100 percent of the remaining costs of eligible education-related expenses. Full credit underwriting is required as well as a debt and current income. Most students will need a qualified cosigner to meet credit eligibility requirements. Know your deadlines and compare your options: Pay special attention to the college application deadlines to make sure that you take full advantage of these opportunities.

AMERICAN COUNSELING ASSOCIATION Getting older happens to all of us, but it can be a frightening experience as we first recognize our own signs of aging. Those first few gray hairs... that morning stiffness... realizing your eyesight isn’t what it used to be. It may be a gradual process, but the signs are certainly clear. The reality of aging can bring out a variety of responses. If a person sees aging as a natural experience and one associated with gaining wisdom, mid-life can be a positive experience. But for someone who places a lot of value on the virtues of youth, such as looks and strength, midlife can seem devastating. However, there are ways to combat such feelings and gain a more a positive attitude about maturing. One starting point is simply to make a list of the lessons that have been learned since adolescence and how this knowledge has served you. On such a list you’ll probably find your success at work, the ease you now have at social gatherings, and your ability to build stronger personal relationships. Another positive step can be to explore new activities to

help you feel healthy and relaxed. No, not that under-30 baseball team, tennis tournament, or hockey league to “prove” you’ve still got it. That will only bring frustration (and probably injuries). Instead, look to jogging, swimming, yoga or other enjoyable but more age-appropriate activities. Try becoming more involved with children, your own or in the community, and pass on some of the skills you learned when their age. You might set some new goals, both individual and social, that you’d like to achieve, then begin planning on how to make them happen. Too often we find we’re unthinkingly following the plans of our earlier years, when our experience and maturity can instead now give us a clearer vision of what’s important and achievable. Sometimes people find it very difficult to accept growing older and find it leading to depression or other problems. That’s a good time to talk to a professional counselor. He or she can’t stop the aging process, but can assist you in coming to terms with the parts of your life that you find troubling.

Nutanix Opens New Pregnancy can be Headquarters in San Jose a beautiful thing greasy, spicy and fatty foods. Having an empty stomach can actually make nausea worse, so consider snacking on a few crackers or a piece of dry toast before getting out of bed and snacking throughout the day rather than eating three larger meals. * Ginger - For centuries, Asian cultures have recognized ginger’s ability to help settle an upset stomach. You may find sipping ginger tea will help relieve your nausea, or you can increase the use of this spice in your cooking to help create a more even, lasting effect. For times when you need quick relief, you can try ginger lozenges. Sea-Band makes a variety, dubbed Mama! Ginger Lozenges, that also include folic acid, which is believed to help promote healthy fetal development. These are available at Walgreens.com.

(BPT) The big news that a baby is on the way is a time for celebration, excitement and planning. Many couples choose to keep this information quiet for the first couple of months, so they can celebrate the upcoming change in their life together. But sometimes, morning sickness for the mom-tobe can let the news out of the bag earlier than intended. Morning sickness - pregnancy-related nausea - is very common, especially during the first trimester. However, the problem isn’t the same for every woman, as the nausea can occur at any time of day or night (not just in the morning) and some women experience it throughout their pregnancy. For some women, it’s a minor annoyance. For others, it can become a serious issue. No one is sure exactly what causes it, but hormonal changes that take place during pregnancy probably play a role.

Morning sickness relief can be complicated, too, since many women try to avoid taking medications during pregnancy. And what works for one woman, may not be as effective for another. Fortunately, if you’re experiencing morning sickness, there are natural, alternative remedies that can help control your upset tummy, and help you keep your news private until you’re ready to share. Some are age-old (taking ginger for an upset stomach) and some are leading edge (using a wrist band to provide acupressure). Here are some nonmedicinal remedies you can use to relieve morning sickness: * Lifestyle changes - Making certain changes in your eating habits can also help relieve morning sickness, according to the Mayo Clinic. The clinic’s website recommends mothers-to-be choose foods that are high-carb, low-fat and easy to digest, and avoid

* Aromatherapy - Sensitivity to certain smells is also common during pregnancy and can even bring on pregnancyrelated nausea. Aromas can also help relieve symptoms. Scents like ginger, peppermint and spearmint can help an unsettled stomach feel better. At home, try potpourri or sachets scented with these essential oils. * Acupressure - Just as wearing an acupressure wrist band can help fight motion sickness, these bands may help moms-to-be relieve morning sickness. For all the joys pregnancy can bring to your life, you’ll have to cope with challenges too. Morning sickness - like puffy ankles and an expanding waistline - is a reality of pregnancy, but it doesn’t have to spoil your enjoyment of this special time. Natural remedies can help you feel better without the potential risks of medication.

Osvaldo Castillo EL OBSERVADOR San Jose-based Nutanix celebrated the opening of its new headquarters on Thursday May 2 and provided an overview of the company’s significant growth, described plans, and detailed why it chose San Jose for its new headquarters. Nutanix has added more than 100 employees in the past 12 months and has doubled the size of its company headquarters to a 30,000-square foot facility. “In the last six quarters, Nutanix has grown at 80% quarter-over-quarter and achieved an annualized run rate of over $80 million, eclipsing the market adoption velocity of all storage, networking and infrastructure startups since the early 2000’s,” said Suzanne Block, Bateman Group for Nutanix. “Over the past year, Nutanix has also made significant strides in growing its customer and partner base, scaling customer deployments, adding significant headcount, ex-

panding internationally and doubling the size of its headquarters. Nutanix was founded in 2009 and provides enterprise datacenter infrastructure solutions that are hyper-efficient, massively scalable and elegantly simple. The Nutanix Virtual Computing Platform is the industry’s first solution to seamlessly converge, compute, and provide storage into a single box. For enterprises that want to simplify their enterprise datacenters and control costs, the Nutanix combines power, scale, performance, flexibility and efficiency like no other. “The company chose to open its new office in San Jose because it delivers the right combination of business infrastructure and location affording access to employees, customers, partners and investors from all over the Bay Area,” Block said. Several investors have contributed to the companies growth including: $13.3M from Lightspeed Venture Partners and Blumberg Capital, $25.3M from Khosla

Ventures, Lightspeed Venture Partners and Blumberg Capital, and $33M from Lightspeed Venture Partners, Khosla Ventures, Battery Ventures and Goldman Sachs.

¡Adelante! The Mexican Museum Moves Forward in 2013 SAN FRANCISCO

May 9 – Nov 3 • The Walt Disney Family Musuem Since its publication in 1865, artists have been retelling Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in an array of styles and media, including the 1951 Walt Disney film. More than half a century later, Camille Rose Garcia reinvigorates the classic tale in her vibrant, goth-inspired version of Alice’s surreal exploits. The exhibition brings together Garcia’s book illustrations with select works from the Disney film by concept artists Mary Blair – a combination to inspire, engage, and draw you into magical worlds.

Say it with (not) Flowers Juan Carlos Miranda SPECIAL TO EL OBSERVADOR So Mother’s Day is just around the corner and, if you’re anything like me, you are waiting until the last possible minute to run over to the grocery store, flower shop, or even the little stand at the corner of some street on the east side to buy an overpriced bunch of half-dying roses for your Mamacita. Now, I’m not saying there is anything wrong with that, at least you’re getting her something. But if you are ready to be the exemplary son/daughter you always thought you were, then ditch the wilted flowers and put a little more effort to make this Mother’s Day one she will remember. I have never in my life encountered a woman who didn’t like to smell good. Women are vain by nature and moms are no exception. A good way to show mom how much you care would be buying her a new scent, one that will make her smell and feel like the goddess she is. My recommendations when it comes to good scents are these: The classic and elegant Chanel No 5, which ranges between $60 and $200 depending on the size and add ons; Angel Perfume by Thierry Mugler, which has some berry and honey notes with a touch of vanilla, caramel and patchouli amongst others. The price for this perfume is a little higher starting at around $80 for an 8oz bottle but it’s totally worth it.

Now if you want to give your mom a something she can show off, and if you’re able to splurge a little, then think about buying her every woman’s kryptonite, right after shoes of course; a handbag. As far as handbags go a woman can never have too many. However, choosing the right one for mom could get a little trickier. A woman’s purse is a reflection of herself. You can tell a lot about a woman just by looking at her purse, so who better to know what kind of purse to buy your mom than yourself. These are the designer brands I recommend: Michael Kors for the sophisticated woman; Louis Vuitton, for the flashy gals; Chanel, for the classy ladies; Dooney & Bourke, for the fun spouse and Coach for the queen of the house. Any of these purses will set you back anywhere between $200 and $1500 ,but then again mom is totally worth it. Let’s talk kryptonite. Shoes are a woman’s best friend, along with diamonds. But trying to get mom a pair she will actually love is a little tricky. You really have

to know what she likes, her shoe size and the brand or designer she prefers, unless you know all of these things I wouldn’t opt for buying her that really expensive pair of stilettos, but instead go for the second best option, a gift certificate to that fancy shoe store, or Nordstrom. Last but not least, anything with diamonds or gold would be the perfect gift. Pay a visit to Tiffany and see what they got, rings, earrings, necklaces whatever you choose your mom is going to love it. This year, whatever you decide to get mom, do yourself a favor and don’t think of it as an expense; your mom deserves the world. Maybe you can’t afford any of the really expensive items I mentioned, but remember there are alternatives. The point is to get you started thinking of other ways in which to reward your lovely mother for all the hard work and sacrifice she has gone through to raise you. ¡Feliz día de las madres!

única figura femenina importante en las sagradas escrituras y en el cristianismo. Pero únicamente dentro del catolicismo es ampliamente venerada en sus diversas advocaciones. La Madre de Dios ha causado conmoción desde los primeros albores del cristianismo debido a sus innumerables apariciones en todo el mundo. “La primera vez que la Virgen apareció fue allá por el año 40 de nuestra era”, se apareció al Apóstol Santiago en Zaragoza. Es ésta la primera vez de

la cual se tiene documentación de las apariciones marianas. En aquella ocasión la Virgen le pidió al Apóstol que se erigiera el pilar que significa la fuerza y sostén de la fe se le profesa a la Santísima en toda España. A esta primera advocación se le conoce como Virgen del Pilar Existe una estrecha relación entre el mundo hispano y la Virgen María, pues el único retrato fehaciente que se tiene de la madre de Cristo quedó plasmado en la túnica de

San Juan Diego cuando ella se le apareció en 1531 en México. Por lo tanto la imagen de la Virgen de Guadalupe es el único retrato auténtico que se conoce de la Virgen María. Son muy populares en América latina las romerías y festividades ofrecidas a la Virgen de Guadalupe, Virgen del Carmen, Virgen de Altagracia, Virgen de los Ángeles, Virgen de Coromoto, Virgen de Chiquinquirá, Virgen de Suyapa, Virgen de la Inmaculada Concepción, Virgen del Perpetuo Socorro, Virgen de la Candelaria, Virgen de

la Paz y María Auxiliadora. Entre los cientos de santuarios alrededor del mundo los más visitados y aclamados como milagrosos son el de la Virgen de Lourdes en Francia, Virgen de Fátima en Portugal y Virgen de Guadalupe en México. Existen personas que afirman que la Virgen se les ha aparecido dictándoles mensajes de lo que depara el futuro a la humanidad, tal es el caso de la señora Annie Kirkwood, autora del libro “María mensajes para el mundo”, el libro relata una serie de sucesos dramáticos que sucederán prontamente en nuestro planeta como parte de nuestra propia evolución. Otros afirman que la Virgen se ha aparecido en veladoras, pedazos de pan, árboles, paredes, retratos, etc. De estas apariciones la Iglesia guarda total hermetismo pues se cree que muchas de ellas son parte de la sugestión popular. Desde hace décadas se murmura que el Vaticano guarda celosamente varios secretos dictados por la Virgen, entre ellos, “el verdadero mensaje del tercer secreto de Fátima”. ¡Sagrada Virgen María! “Dios te salve en mayo y durante toda la eternidad, vela por nosotros que acudimos a ti”.

DOC MC STUFFINS: TIME FOR YOUR CHECK UP Chile lo tiene todo: paisajes maravillosos, mujeres deslumbrantes, hombres interesantes, vinos excelentes y las mejores fiestas. Para un desafortunado turista norteamericano, a quien sus dos amigos chilenos Ariel (Ariel Levy) y Pollo (Nicolás Martínez) llaman Gringo (Eli Roth), el viaje ha sido un sueño hecho realidad excepto que él no consigue enamorar a las chicas. La suerte de Gringo toma un giro diferente cuando el grupo conoce a tres muchachas despampanantes: la modelo rusa Irina (Natasha Yarovenko), la que no para de fiestar Kylie (Lorenza Izzo) y su hermana que es más seria Mónica (Andrea Osvárt), quienes acuerdan acompañar a Gringo y sus amigos a Valparaíso. Los recién conocidos se están divirtiendo de lo lindo bailando en una discoteca cuando un fuerte y violento terremoto destruye toda la ciudad. En el que fuera un paraíso terrenal, que ahora no es más que un espectáculo de destrucción y muerte donde abundan el terror y el pánico, nuestros desafortunados héroes deben enfrentarse a ladrones, a presos escapados de la cárcel y a las inevitables réplicas sísmicas para salvar sus vidas. 

Doc McStuffins: Time for Your Check Up, la segunda compilación en DVD de la exitosa serie animada de Disney Junior “Doc McStuffins” es una adición obligatoria a la colección de títulos para ver en familia, el DVD contiene 5 episodios llenos de diversión e incluye un medidor de crecimiento de regalo. “The Great Gatsby” relata la historia del escritor en ciernes Nick Carraway cuando deja el Medio Oeste y llega a Nueva York en la primavera de 1922, una época de costumbres relajadas, jazz rutilante, reyes del contrabando y precios de acciones que llegan a las nubes. Mientras busca su propio sueño americano aterriza cerca de un misterioso millonario afecto a dar grandes fiestas, Jay Gatsby, y cruzando la bahía está su prima Daisy y su mujeriego y aristocrático esposo Tom Buchanan. Es así como Nick se deja llevar por el cautivador mundo de los muy ricos, sus ilusiones, sus amores y sus mentiras. Y siendo testigo por dentro y fuera del mundo que habita, escribe un relato de amor imposible, sueños incorruptibles y enormes tragedias, que refleja las luchas de nuestro propio tiempo.

Doc McStuffins, la serie de televisión por cable para niños de 2 a 5 años número uno en 2012, cuenta la historia de una maternal niña de seis años que cura animales de peluche y juguetes rotos en la clínica de juguete del patio trasero de su casa. Ayudando a Doc en la clínica se encuentra su leal equipo de adorables animales de peluche, que incluye a: Stuffy, un dragón excesivamente orgulloso; el mimoso cordero Lambie, el mejor amigo de Doc; Hallie, una alegre y solícita enfermera hipopótamo; y Chilly, un muñeco de nieve que pasa mucho tiempo haciéndose chequeos en la clínica. Ya se trate de una puntada suelta, de unas baterías bajas o de un muñeco inflable con una fuga de aire, Doc y sus compañeros siempre están allí para echar una mano, enseñando al mismo tiempo a los jóvenes espectadores la importancia de cuidar de uno mismo y de los demás.

Dona Juan Gabriel traje que usó en palenque de Aguascalientes Aguascalientes (NOTIMEX) La presidenta del Sistema Estatal para el Desarrollo Integral de la Familia (DIF), Blanca Rivera Rio de Lozano, anunció que el cantautor Juan Gabriel donó a la institución el traje rosa mexicano que usó durante su presentación en el Palenque de la Feria, el pasado 2 de mayo. Explicó que este traje será utilizado para respaldar los programas en beneficio de la población vulnerable, aunque no especificó si será subastado o vendido.
