ANTICIPATE IMPACT OF AI, AUTOMATION AND ROBOTIC'S ON YOUR FUTURE CAREER PATHS ported such programs as being more efficient and effective than current Welfare allocation administered by local Social Services Agencies.

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR Many individuals receive an earned diploma at their high school, college or university. Graduation speeches mostly present descriptions of 'what a bright future lies ahead of each and every graduate.' What many need to consider is the impact of AI. automation and robotics which have increased productivity using fewer 'human' employees. Robots are machines operated by 'AI programs (Artificial Intelligence). Be assured that not every job can be entirely done by robots which are programmed by 'coders' to do repetitive work very efficiently. The S.F. Chronicle on Sunday, May 6, 2017 had a very brief news item communicating that restaurants which use robots to deliver services (e.g., waiting on tables) will be required to pay annual license fees which underwrite the 're-training' of former employees who no longer have jobs and benefits (heath care insurance, retirement program, and personal income). In fact a few 'think tanks' are already studying and proposing that every individual receive a GPI (guaranteed personal income) from a government agency (Social Security Administration; Dept. of Health & Human Services...?) in order to sustain America's consumer economy. In the recent past, economist Milton F0riendman has sup-

“Oxford University researchers have estimated that 47 percent of U.S. jobs could be automated within the next two decades. But which white-collar jobs will robots take first?” “First, for this article only, “robots” are defined as technologies, such as machine learning algorithms running on (dedicated, single) purpose-built computer platforms to perform tasks that currently require humans to be perform(ed).” With this definition in mind, consider the following 'employment groups': 1) MIDDLE MANAGEMENT... If the main job function is taking a number from one box in Excel and putting it in another box in Excel and writing a descriptive note about how that number got from place to place, robots are very effective. Any job where one's “special and unique” knowledge of an industrial process may be applied to divine a causal relationship between numbers in a matrix is going to be repla0ced first. Become very flexible by becoming a multidisciplinary “KNOWLEDGE WORKER”.

process (request for proposal, quotation, order and fulfillment system). It is the fiduciary responsibility of CEO's and board members to invest in robots. A professional would specialize in those production processes which the robots cannot do (cognitive functions). 3) REPORT WRITERS, JOURNALISTS, AUTHORS & ANNOUNCERS: Writing is tough; Report writing is not. Robotic machines can be taught to read data, pattern match images or video, or analyze almost any kind of research materials and create a very readable (or announceable) writing. Text-tospeech systems are evolving so quickly and sound so realistic, one may expect both play-byplay and color commentators to be put out of work relatively soon – to say nothing about the numbered days of sports or financial writers.

2) Commodity Sales Persons (Ad sales, supplies, etc.)

4) ACCOUNTANTS & BOOKKEEPERS: Data processing and AI machine learning–based accountants and bookkeepers will be so much better than their human counterparts. Robo-accounting is awesome at dealing with accounts payable and receivable, inventory control, auditing and several other accounting functions that humans used to be needed to do. Very soon, Big Four auditing is in for a big shake-up.

Unless one negotiate using special perks, bribes or other valuable add-ons that have nothing to do with specifications, price and availability, robotic machines can take so much cost out of any sales

5) DOCTORS: May be one of the only guaranteed positive outcomes of robots’ taking (over) human jobs. The current world population is 7.3 billion (2017); it is expected to reach 8.5 billion by 2030; 9.7 billion in 2050

and 11.2 billion in 2100 per a United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN-DESA) report. In practice, if everyone who ever wanted to be a doctor became one, we still would not have enough doctors. The good news is that robots make amazing diagnosticians and surgeons. According to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, IBM’s Watson is teaming up with a dozen US hospitals to offer advice on the best treatments for a range of cancers, and also helping to spot early-stage skin cancers. And ultra-precise robo-surgeons are currently used for everything from knee replacement surgery to vision correction. If 'warm and fuzzy' human relationships are desired, these will continue to be provided by 'human M.D.'s. Robodoc's are machines. This trend is continuing at an incredible pace.” All jobs may be analyzed to determine how much may be performed by robotic algorithms. A report released by the Obama Administration included a very dire prediction: “There is an 83% chance that workers who earn $20/hr or less could have their jobs taken over by robots in the next five years. Those in the $40/ hr pay range face a 31% chance of having their jobs taken over by these machines.” Clearly, the robots are coming. What may one do about robotics? “First, technological progress is neither good nor bad; it just is...The good news is knowing what’s coming. Think about preparation for adaptation. All must prepare for evolving

'man-machine' partnerships by becoming 'multi-disciplinary'. Adapting requires understanding how man-machine partnerships are going to evolve. This is tricky, but not impossible. Knowing that machine learning (AI) is going to be used to automate many, if not most, low-level cognitive tasks, gives all a chance to prepare. Our goal is to use our high-level cognitive ability to anticipate what parts of our work will be fully automated and what parts will be so hard for machines to do that manmachine partnership is the most practical approach. With that strategy, one can work on adapting our mindset and skills to become better than our peers at leveraging manmachine relationships. Humans have always been tool-users; now one will be partners with 'our robot' on the job site.” Becoming a great man-machine partner team will not save every job, but it is a clear pathway to prolonging your current career (path) while you figure out what your job must evolve into in order to continue to transfer the value of your personal intellectual property as a 'knowledge worker' into your personal wealth and well-being. So do anticipate the impact of automation and robotic's on your future career journey. Some proactive planning will ensure satisfying fulfillment.

EL POPULISMO HERIDO Por José López Zamorano La Red Hispana No es la primera vez que los ojos del mundo han estado volcados en Francia, el país que legó a la humanidad su célebre Declaración de los Derechos del Hombre y de los ciudadanos en 1789 y cuyo lema revolucionario de “libertad, igualdad y fraternidad” ha sido fuente de inspiración en incontables episodios históricos. Las elecciones del domingo pasado entre el banquero Emmanuel Macron y la nacionalista Marine Le Pen atrajeron una atención sin precedentes porque no sólo estaba en juego el destino de Francia, sino la definición de dos apuestas políticas y filosóficas marcadamente contrapuestas y cuyo desenlace debe importar a todos.  

No fue por ello casual que, ante la percepción de lo que estaba en juego, tanto el presidente Donald Trump como el ex presidente Barack Obama, hayan decidido no tan veladamente dejar en claro su apoyo a Le Pen y Macron respectivamente. El presidente Trump no pudo ocultar su preferencia por Le Pen en una entrevista con The Associated Press cuando aseguró que ella era la más fuerte en el tema fronterizo. “Quien sea más dura contra el terrorismo radical islámico y quien sea la más fuerte en las fronteras, le irá bien en la elección”, sostuvo Trump.   En contraste, un mensaje videograbado de Obama resaltó a Macron como el candidato de los valores liberales y el promotor de fortalecer el papel de Francia en Europa y en el mundo. “en la perla a las

esperanzas de la gente, no a sus miedos”, señaló. El contundente triunfo de Macron con el 66.1% de los votos representa por ello una victoria para quienes creen en los valores fundamentales de la apertura, la tolerancia, la diversidad y la inclusión, frente a las ideas del Frente Nacional de Le Pen que defendía posiciones anti migratorias, nativistas y xenófobas.   El populismo quedó herido y desfalleciente, pero no muerto. A pesar de haber obtenido sólo el 33.9% de los votos, se trata del nivel más alto de apoyo al Frente Nacional. En otras palabras, una tercera parte de los electores franceses no apoyaron a Macron, por lo cual uno de sus primeros retos será unificar al país en una visión compartida.

Pero el apoyo detrás de Le Pen y de su filosofía, como antes lo hubo a los republicanos en Estados Unidos y al Brexit en Gran Bretaña, muestra que hay grandes segmentos de la población atentos a narrativas que les ofrecen alternativas –realistas o no— a sus preocupaciones legítimas sobre su bienestar personal y su seguridad económica.   El triunfo de Macron, un candidato con un movimiento, pero sin un partido, muestra que es posible construir propuestas políticas y programáticas alternativas que apelan a valores colectivos positivos y no a exacerbar la ansiedad y el miedo con propuestas simplistas y aislacionistas.

Rosa Sosa emigró al área de la bahía desde México a la edad de 16 años, quería aprender inglés y encontró Mission College, o tal vez, Mission College la encontró a ella. Sosa acredita su carrera educativa y profesional a Mission College, por los amigos que ella hizo, las personas que conoció y el personal con el que interactúo. Ella no lo hubiese  logrado sin el colegio comunitario de Santa Clara, pero aprender inglés no fue fácil. "Es muy intimidante cuando tu  no eres de aquí o cuando te sientes como una persona rara parada en un salón."- Dijo Sosa "Incluso si no entiendes lo que la persona esta diciendo, solo pregunta, ¿Por favor, podrías repetir la pregunta?” Cada dia, la confianza continuó creciendo. Sosa tomó clases en gramática básica, pronunciación y practica de conversación con grupos pequeños y grandes, también trabajó en su lectura y vocabulario. Los instructores de Mission College le ayudaron en cada paso de su carrera. Internacional Center resultó ser un recurso importante, dándole su primer trabajo como asistente de oficina. "Después de un semestre, pasé el examen de inglés y luego, ellos me ofrecieron una oferta para quedarme en el colegio y comenzar a trabajar en mi titulo." Dijo Sosa. Con estas bases, Mission College se convirtió en un hogar. "Estaba muy apegada al campus cuando llegue aquí. Yo estaba aquí todos los días, Mission College creyó

en mi desde el momento en que entre por la puerta.”- Dijo Sosa. Después de obtener su titulo técnico en Mission College, ella se transfirió a San Jose State donde recibió su licenciatura. Este mes de Mayo, ella recibirá su maestría de la Universidad Embry-Ridle en Arizona y recientemente aceptó una posición en Pinkerton como una Counter Terrorism Threat Analyst (Analista de Amenazas Contra el Terrorismo) en Virginia donde se concentrara en amenazas a los países latinoamericanos. Sosa le da crédito a Mission College por ayudarla a dar ese primer paso. "Tener una base sólida me ayudo a navegar diferentes opciones y diferentes carreras. Es un gran lugar para comenzar y después buscar muchas oportunidades diferentes." – Dijo Sosa Para mas información sobre los programas de ESL en Mission College y otros cursos relacionados a negocios, trabajar en hoteles y restaurantes, enfermería y otros campos emocionantes, visite missioncollege. edu o esl.missioncollege.edu En el Welcome Center de Mission College, Admisiones, Consejería y Ayuda Financiera hablan español y están listos para ayudarte a ser exitoso.

LA SAL ESCONDIDA ESTÁ DAÑANDO SU SALUD? CINCO CONSEJOS PARA EVITARLO BPT

Un almuerzo convencional de sopa y sándwich puede parecer una comida sana. Sin embargo, el pan, las carnes frías o fiambres y la sopa, pueden contener una sustancia que implicaría un impacto negativo en su bienestar físico general: la sal. "Incluso las comidas aparentemente sanas como el sándwich de pavo con acompañante de requesón pueden contener altos niveles de sal, sin siquiera tener sabor salado", afirma el Dr. John Meigs, Jr., MD, presidente de la Academia de Médicos de Familia de los Estados Unidos (American Academy of Family Physicians). Meigs añade que uno de los grandes errores que cometemos es asumir que, si no se echa sal con un salero, los niveles de sodio de las comidas están bajo control. Pero lo cierto es que los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CDC) estiman que el 77 por ciento de la sal que los estadounidenses ingieren proviene de alimentos procesados y comidas en restaurantes, en comparación con el 6 por ciento procedente del salero en la mesa, y el 5 por ciento que se añade durante la cocción casera. Según los CDC, los 10 alimentos principales que contribuyen a una significativa cantidad de sal que consumen los estadounidenses son: 1. Panes y panecillos 2. Carnes frías y curadas (por ejemplo, jamón o pavo de la charcutería o empacado) 3. Pizzas 4. Aves frescas y procesadas 5. Sopas 6. Sándwiches como las hamburguesas con queso 7. Quesos 8. Platos con pasta (excepto los macarrones con queso) 9. Platos con carnes mezcladas como el rollo de carne con salsa de tomate 10. Merienda como las patatas fritas, pretzels y palomitas de maíz. Por supuesto, la sal es necesaria para el buen funcionamiento del organismo, pero ingerir más de lo normal puede provocar hipertensión, enfermedades cardiacas y accidentes cerebrovasculares. Los CDC aconsejan que la mayoría de las personas debería limitar la ingestión total de sal a 2,300 miligramos al día, o menos.

"En cada cucharadita de sal de mesa hay 2,300 miligramos de sodio (nombre que se le da a la sal en términos químicos)", explica el Dr. Meigs. "Es un verdadero reto reducir la ingestión de sal, incluso en personas altamente motivadas a hacerlo". El Dr. Meigs ofrece algunas estrategias fáciles para disminuir la ingestión de sal y tomar el control de su nutrición: Estar al tanto de sus indicadores de salud Hable con su médico sobre su presión arterial, niveles de colesterol, historia clínica familiar y formas de evitar problemas cardiacos antes de que aparezcan. Para más detalles visite el sitio web familydoctor.org. Leer las etiquetas de nutrición Solo necesita unos pocos segundos para leer las etiquetas de nutrición y determinar qué componentes del alimento que va a adquirir tienen altas cantidades de sodio. En ocasiones esa información está incluso impresa en la parte frontal del envase. Tenga en cuenta que, a menudo, marcas diferentes del mismo alimento contienen diversos niveles de sal. Por ejemplo, una rebanada de pan blanco puede contener entre 80 y 230 miligramos de sal. Los niveles de sal que contiene una lata de sopa de pollo con fideos pueden variar entre 100 a 900 miligramos por ración. Informarse antes de comer en un restaurante Comer en restaurantes puede ser una delicia sana con un poco de esfuerzo proactivo. Si el menú no contiene información de nutrición, haga su propia investigación anticipada visitando el sitio web del restaurante. Le sorprenderá enterarse de que platos considerados como "comidas ligeras o sanas" tienen con frecuencia un alto contenido de sal. Optar por alimentos enteros Independientemente de que coma en casa o en un restaurante, llenar su plato con alimentos enteros- en su estado natural o lo más cerca posible del mismo- le ayudará a disminuir los niveles de sodio. Los alimentos frescos no procesados con alto contenido de fibra son idóneos, como, por ejemplo, frutas y vegetales frescos, carnes sin grasa y granos enteros. Preparar su comida en casa Es más fácil regular el consumo de sal preparando su comida en casa. Al hacerlo, no solo puede seleccionar ingredientes sanos y llenar su plato con alimentos enteros. También puede controlar la sal que le añade a los platos manipulando recetas e incluyendo alternativas para dar más sabor, como hierbas frescas.

RECIBIR INVITADOS EN SU PROPIO VERANO COMO UN JEFE

Alexis Middleton of Persia Lou blog photo Credit: Alexia Middleton Plantéese una mesa de autoservicio con aperitivos inspirados en el Mediterráneo. Photo Credit: StatePoint

StatePoint

Haga la vida sencilla y deliciosa este verano con aperitivos, botanas y charolas de fiesta de estilo mediterráneo que están listas para servirse en un momento. No importa cuál sea la ocasión, desde barbacoas hasta graduaciones, puede disfrutar de toda una temporada de diversión al aire libre con estas ideas. Consejos para decorar y servir Elija tulipanes, girasoles y gerberas de colores vivos para poner la mesa de un modo alegre. Conjunte los platos de aperitivos con flores para crear una agradable presentación. Cuando lleguen los invitados, póngales un vaso en la mano para que se sientan bienvenidos y listos para disfrutar sus deliciosos alimentos. La clave para recibir invitados de manera agradable es tanto estar preparado como ser parte de la fiesta. Cree una atmósfera de autoservicio que le dé a usted, el anfitrión, más libertad para disfrutar de tiempo con sus invitados. Comida básica inteligente Con comida básica inteligente a mano, es sencillo poner en marcha la fiesta. Las aceitunas, por ejemplo, son el eje de la dieta mediterránea. De intenso sabor, son maravillosamente versátiles. Combinadas con sabores frescos de verduras de temporada, como espárragos, tomates, pimientos morrones y pepinos, pueden darle vida a cualquier plato con una abundante y satisfactoria explosión de sabor. También se conjuntan naturalmente con cualquier queso, añadidas a la pasta o servidas con hummus, panes de estilo rústico y vinos refrescantes de verano. Una, dos, tres brochetas Pruebe esta sabrosa idea: empiece con palillos para crear brochetas de un solo servicio que los invitados pueden llevar consigo

fácilmente mientras socializan. Elija tres o cuatro distintos tipos de aceitunas, pequeños cubos de queso y rebanadas de carnes listas para comerse. Por ejemplo, comience con una Kalamata de Pearls Specialties o aceitunas rellenas de ajo. A continuación, añada una rebanada de su queso favorito cortado en pequeños cubos. Después, combínelos con una rebanada de salami, jamón ahumado o anillos salteados de sabrosas salchichas. Clave todo en un palillo para ofrecer sencillos entremeses de un bocado. Esta combinación de sabores hace que los invitados vuelvan por más y más. Golosinas sencillas Para lograr un impresionante plato de entremeses, cubre galletas grandes de cereal integral con una porción de hummus y rebanadas cortadas en cruz de aceitunas Kalamata. Para agregar color, sabor y textura, pruebe un hummus de remolacha o pesto de albahaca. Combine colores y sabores añadiendo rebanadas delgadas de pepino, queso feta marinado y desmigado o una acidulada salsa de mango ya preparada. Sírvalo de inmediato para mantener crujientes las galletas. Desaparecerán rápidamente y son visualmente muy atractivas. Lleve unos tomates cherry o uva, un paquete de tortellini congelados con salsa de pesto y algunos “bocconcini” tamaño bocadillo, que son pequeñas bolas de mozzarella en aceitunas, ya sea marinadas con hierbas y aceite de oliva o sencillas. Combine estos elementos en un plato grande, en distintas secciones, y proporcione pequeños platos de entremeses y palillos de fiesta para sus invitados. Para obtener más ideas, recetas y consejos, visite olives.com/pearls. Con los ingredientes correctos y una alegre disposición de la mesa, recibir invitados en verano puede ser sencillo, divertido y brillante.

How Humor Can Improve Lives StatePoint

You’ve probably heard the old adage, “laughter is the best medicine.” Well there’s some truth to that. The Mayo Clinic cites a number of health benefits from laughter, such as pain relief, stress relief and an improved immune system. Indeed, this concept is being applied in a number of ways. In medical care, doctors are even prescribing laughter as medicine in a treatment known as laughter therapy. Charities are also getting in on the fun. In the world of philanthropy, lighthearted, comedic fun is helping children in poverty. The best part? Anyone can get involved. From now until June 3, 2017, Red Noses are available at all Walgreens and Duane Reade locations nationwide for $1 each, with all profits from all sales benefitting the Red Nose Day Fund. The fund supports programs that help children living in poverty in the U.S. and internationally, working with nonprofit organizations such as the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, charity:water, Children’s Health Fund, Feeding America, Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance, National Council of La Raza, Save the Children and The Global Fund. To spread the word, Walgreens is inviting people across the country to wear noses

on social media, and to tag their photos and posts using #RedNose on Twitter or Instagram. So, consider grabbing some friends who make you smile, and take a fun and silly selfie for a cause. Additionally, weekly Red Nose challenges can help you raise even more money and awareness. “One of my favorite things about Red Nose Day is how easy it is to get involved, but if you are looking for ways to do more, there are definitely opportunities,” says blogger, Alexis Middleton of Persia Lou. “First off, be sure to visit Walgreens.com for more information about upcoming events, including fun Facebook live activations every Friday afternoon where you can donate and influence what happens in real time.” The Red Nose Day campaign will culminate in a night of special television programming celebrating Red Nose Day on May 25 starting at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. For more information on Red Nose Day and how to get involved, follow Walgreens on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. There’s no doubt about it. Humor, laughter and having fun can boost your quality of life; and these days, there’s not only evidence that it’s good for you, there are also opportunities to do good while you’re at it.

EL LÍDER DEL SENADO DE CALIFORNIA PRESENTA MEDIDA PARA UN 100 POR CIENTO DE ENERGÍAS LIMPIAS

del 2030 al 2026 y establece un nuevo punto de referencia RPS (Normativa de Energías Renovables) del 60% para el 2030 con el propósito de asegurar más energías limpias en la red de California, con una mayor prontitud.

tiempo la intensidad del carbón en casi un 40% en comparación con 1990. También hemos reducido las facturas de energía, mejorado la calidad del aire y creado miles de nuevos empleos con altos salarios en el sector de las energías limpias.

década ofrece sólida evidencia de que podemos expandir dramáticamente la utilización de energías limpias mientras que hacemos crecer nuestra economía y ponemos a trabajar a la gente,” aseveró el Senador De León . “Esta medida asegurará que California permanezca siendo la súper potencia mundial en energías limpias y que lideremos la nación al abordar de frente la amenaza del cambio climático.”

3. Establece nuevas políticas para que las empresas energéticas capten las emisiones no controladas de metano de las lecherías, vertederos, y plantas de tratamiento de aguas residuales, y utilicen estos combustibles renovables limpios para reemplazar el gas natural.

California ya tiene los objetivos climáticos más ambiciosos del mundo y los objetivos de energías renovables más agresivos de cualquier economía de su tamaño. Lideramos a la nación en la generación de energías renovables, la inversión de capital de tecnologías limpias, la creación de patentes y la tecnología de vehículos limpios.

SUMARIO DEL PROYECTO DE LEY El SB 100, El Acta de Energías Limpias de California de 2017 hace todo lo siguiente:

SACRAMENTO – El Presidente Pro Tempore del Senado de California, Kevin de León (D-Los Ángeles), presentó el 9 de martes el Proyecto de Ley Senatorial SB 100 , El Acta de Energías Limpias de California de 2017, que pone al estado rumbo al 100 por ciento en la utilización de energías limpias y renovables para 2045.   “La experiencia de California en la última

1. Establece una meta estatal total del 100% de energías limpias para California para 2045, ordenando a la Comisión de Servicios Públicos de California, a la Comisión Estatal de Energía, y la Junta Encargada de los Recursos Atmosféricos, a adoptar políticas públicas y requisitos para lograr una dependencia total de las energías renovables y eliminar los recursos derivados del carbón para esa fecha. 2. Acelera la directriz del 50% de la SB 350 para energías limpias y renovables

4. Autoriza a los inversionistas a invertir en combustibles de transporte más limpios como el hidrógeno o el gas metano residual de las lecherías, para utilizarlos en los camiones de carga pesada y reemplazar los combustibles diesel contaminantes, siempre y cuando no haya disponibles otras opciones más limpias como vehículos de emisión contaminante cero. HISTORIAL California tiene una de las economías más limpias del mundo. Desde que aprobamos la AB 32 en 2006, hemos aumentado nuestra economía más rápido que el promedio nacional, reduciendo al mismo

En 2015, la Legislatura aprobó la SB 350, El Acta de Energías Limpias y Reducción de Contaminación (De León et al), que estableció una normativa del 50% de energías limpias para el 2030. Ese proyecto también estableció nuevos requisitos para duplicar la eficiencia energética y para el despliegue de electrificación del transporte a gran escala.

HOMBRE ARRESTADO POR FRAUDE, FAKE NEWS NOT SWAYING ELECTIONS HACÍA PASAR POR EMPLEADO DEL DMV Eric Galatas The research – commissioned and funded by El sospechoso prometía arreglar asuntos relacionados con licencias de manejar y matrículas vehiculares a cambio de un pago

Public News Service

DENVER – Despite claims by some politicians, fake news, social media and search algorithms don't sway public opinion, according to a study by a group of international researchers. William Dutton, the report's lead author, says if search engines did help create so-called filter bubbles – where users only get links to information with which they agree – the impacts on the democratic process could be huge. But he says surveys in seven nations including the U.S. found it's not as big a problem as recent media coverage suggests. "On social media and on the Internet generally, they find a lot of viewpoints that their friends and family, that they disagree with,” he states. “And they often go to search to check the reliability, validity of what they hear on social media."

Sacramento – Los investigadores del Departamento de Vehículos Motorizados de California (DMV) han arrestado a un hombre de Los Angeles por defraudar a más de 50 personas. Dicho sospechoso se hacía pasar por un empleado del DMV, cobraba y falsamente prometía “arreglar” problemas relacionados a suspensiones de licencias de manejar y problemas con los registros vehiculares. Antoine Marquis Hale fue detenido en su casa el 6 de abril de 2017, y acusado de robo de identidad por posesión ilícita de la información de identificación personal de sus víctimas, robo por fraude y robo comercial vinculado a la recolección ilícita de dinero de sus víctimas. El sospechoso se declaró culpable de delito grave y enfrenta seis meses de cárcel. La sentencia está prevista para ser dictada el 5 de junio de 2017. El individuo de 26 años de edad colocaba anuncios que mostraban el logotipo del DMV en sitios de internet como Craigslist y Offer Up. Afirmó ser un empleado del DMV que podría eliminar las suspensiones de licencia de manejar, corregir problemas de matrícula vehicular y proporcionar otros servicios del DMV. A cambio, cobraba a sus víctimas entre $250 y $400. Mientras se llevaba a cabo una orden de cateo en la casa de Hale, los investigadores del DMV obtuvieron su teléfono y respondieron a las víctimas que llamaban a Hale para tratar de recuperar su dinero. Un gran número de esas llamadas parecían originarse en Inland Empire. Debido a que este sospechoso admitió haber aprendido de otras personas como llevar a cabo esta actividad fraudulenta, los investigadores del DMV creen que la estafa puede estar continuando en todo California y Nevada. “Los estafadores a menudo fingen ser

alguien en quien puedes confiar, como un funcionario del gobierno, un miembro de la familia o un representante de una compañía con la que haces negocios”, dijo el Jefe de Investigaciones del DMV, Frank Alvarez. “Nunca envíe dinero o proporcione su información personal a cualquier persona que solicite”, declaró el Jefe de Investigaciones del DMV. Consejos para el consumidor: • Haga búsquedas por internet – Escriba el nombre de la empresa o nombre del producto en su buscador favorito y use las palabras review, complaint, or scam. • Cuidado con el identificador de llamadas (Caller ID) – La tecnología facilita que los estafadores puedan identificarse con información falsa con el uso del identificador de llamadas (Caller ID). Si alguien llama pidiendo dinero o información personal, cuelgue. • Considere el modo de pago – Las tarjetas de crédito tienen una importante protección contra el fraude, pero algunos servicios de giros tales como Western Union o MoneyGram son considerados un riesgo porque es casi imposible recuperar su dinero. • Hable con alguien de confianza – Antes de entregar su dinero o información personal, hable con alguien en quien confía. Los estafadores quieren que tome una decisión apresuradamente; incluso podrían amenazarlo. Tome su tiempo y deténgase, revise todo bien y hable con alguien de confianza, como un familiar o amigo. Si usted ha sido víctima de fraude o conoce a alguien que ha enfrentado algo semejante, puede hacer una denuncia en su oficina de Investigaciones del DMV más cercana: https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/dmv/dmv/ offices/investigationsoffice?lang=es.

After Donald Trump's upset victory over Hillary Clinton, pundits and pollsters struggled to find answers and many tagged social media for hosting numerous posts that were outright lies. Dutton says while a minority of Internet users are not skilled in vetting facts, most are not so easily fooled.

Google – was conducted independently by Oxford University, Michigan State University and the University of Ottawa. Dutton says fears of social media echo chambers also are overstated. He notes the survey of 14,000 people found users agree and disagree with political posts on platforms such as Facebook. And Dutton says people also are exposed to a variety of perspectives on television, radio and print outlets. He adds users rarely unfriend or block people with whom they disagree. "Most people who are very interested in politics are relying on all sorts of sources of information and not simply search, or not simply social media," he stresses. Dutton adds a small percentage of Internet users are not adept at fact checking, and it's important for schools at all levels to give people the tools they need to navigate the Internet's resources when it comes to accepting online claims at face value. "Every effort to create training and education around media literacy in a multimedia digital environment is still valuable,” he stresses. “But it's not a problem for most users, but it is a problem for some users."

MTC Recruits for New Policy Advisory Council Term The Metropolitan Transportation Commission – the Bay Area’s transportation planning, financing and coordinating agency – is recruiting Bay Area residents for its 27-member Policy Advisory Council. The Policy Advisory Council is a citizen advisory committee created by the Commission to advise MTC on a range of topics including regional planning, housing, land use, greenhouse gas reduction, public transit improvements, and new revenues for transportation in the Bay Area. Advisors will jump into the thicket of transportation, learn about the complexities of funding, and help analyze the connections between transportation, land use, air quality and climate change. Applications for the Policy Advisory Council will be accepted through Monday, June 12, 2017. Applicants must be willing to serve a four-year term currently scheduled to begin in September 2017 and to end in July 2021. Committee meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month in the afternoon at MTC’s offices in San Francisco. Members receive a small stipend and travel reimbursement for attendance at each meeting. Membership of the Policy Advisory Council is structured around interests related to the economy, the environment and social equity. Nine economy and environment representatives will be appointed to at-large seats. Appointment recommendations are made by Chair Mackenzie and Commission Vice Chair and Alameda County Supervisor Scott Haggerty. The make-up of these nine

representatives must be as follows: • Four of the nine members represent economic interests, and four bring an environmental perspective; the ninth member may be selected from either category. • In addition, five of the nine must be from each of the five most populous Bay Area counties – Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara. Eighteen equity representatives will be appointed, and are recommended by Commissioners in each county. These 18 representatives will include:

MOTHER'S DAY, EVERYDAY

A Look in the Life of Mindy Jazmine Turner

Turner's photo captures a cave in Antelope Canyon near Page, Arizona. Photo Credit: Jazmine Turner Photography

Estephany Haro El Observador

Mother’s Day has been celebrated in different forms across the timespan of humanity, but throughout that time the meaning of being a mother has changed; nowadays a mother has more responsibility and more work when it comes to juggling a professional life and being a mom. Mindy Jazmine Turner is 35-year-old mother of four children and she’s the perfect example of the way mothers of the current age combine their professional and motherly lives to be able to raise children and be successful. As a photographer, Turner's duties include working with clients, traveling to sites to shoot and of course, preparing her children for school everyday. “I start [my day] at 6am waking the kids up, getting them ready for school and we would leave the house by 7am to get the 14 year old to school, then I drop off the 16 year old in high school and from there I take my nine and six year old to school by 8 am.” Turner had her first child when she was 18-year-old, today her oldest son is 16 and her youngest child is a 6-year-old girl. She has always had a close relationship with her children as she worked for 11 years in the preschool and kindergarten that her children attended to. “I think I was more strict when I was a young mom because I wanted my children to take the right path, now i’m more lenient,”

Turner said. However, as the years passed by she also realized that sooner than later her children would leave home to pursue their dreams. Therefore, she thought of a way to be closer to them, having her own business. Turner found a passion in photography, she was once given a camera to take photos and she didn’t want to let go. However, it wasn’t an easy start. Turner says, “that was very hard, I was sleeping about 3 to 4 hours at night just to catch up on the learning curve of everything it takes to start your own business” She still had the responsibility of raising her children, “I think being a mom and trying to start your own business requires a lot of time management skills and balancing, I think it’s harder because you have to raise your children…My 16 year old wants me at his football game and my six year old wants me at his baseball game and all,” Turner said. However, her childhood experiences shaped her as the mother she is today. “I think that the values and the morals that my father and my grandmother showed me have made me the mom that I am,” Turner said. “The fact that I wasn’t close to my mom it has shaped me into really playing a larger and active role in my children’s lives.” Even though Turner was not raised by her mother she plays a bigger role in her life now. She will celebrate Mother’s Day with her children “eating good food, just being together and enjoying each others company.”

BATTLE OVER SANCTUARY CITY BAN MOVES FROM TX CAPITOL TO THE COURTS

Opponents object that the Texas “show me your papers� law would allow police to question anyone they stop for traffic violations about their immigration status. Photo Credit: Pixabay

Mark Richardson Public News Service AUSTIN, Texas - The ink was barely dry on Gov. Greg Abbott's signature on Senate Bill 4, the Texas Sanctuary Cities bill, when the battle over it moved from the state Capitol to the courts. Opponents such as the ACLU and MALDEF are preparing to file lawsuits against the so-called "show me your papers" law, while state officials already have filed a pre-emptive motion in federal court attempting to block those challenges. Terry Burke, executive director of the ACLU of Texas, called the law "racist, wrongheaded and unconstitutional" and is promising a vigorous legal challenge. "Our legal team is continuing to evaluate all possible challenges to SB 4, even as we speak," Burke said, "including a possible challenge before it goes into effect and challenges to how it will be applied after its effective date of Sept. 1." The controversial measure bans "sanctuary cities" in Texas, removes limits on questioning people about their legal status and threatens law officers with jail for not cooperating with immigration officials. The bill is opposed

by police chiefs and sheriffs in all major Texas cities, but the bill's sponsors are confident it will stand up in court. On Monday, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed an unusual pre-emptive motion in federal court, asking the judge to rule SB 4 constitutional and block all legal challenges. Bob Libal, executive director of Grassroots Leadership, said opponents plan to use resistance and civil disobedience to overturn the measure. "Communities across Texas will be pressuring our local officials to not comply with this anti-immigrant, antidemocracy piece of legislation, to join litigation efforts to stop this in the courts and building on the organizing effort around the state of Texas," Libal said. Critics of SB 4 compare it to Arizona's controversial House Bill 1070, which contained a "show me your papers" clause and other immigration restrictions. Most of that law was overturned in court, but not before boycotts cost Arizona more than $1 billion. Studies estimate that a similar law could cost Texas more than $8 billion in lost business. The text of SB 4 is online at capitol.state. tx.us.

Report: Juvenile-Justice Fees Forcing Some CA Families Into Bankruptcy

Before Sacramento County repealed its fees, the average juvenile probation case could generate $5,640 in fees, according to a new report. Photo Credit: JDAI AZ

Suzanne Potter California News Service BERKELEY, Calif. - A new report finds that some California families are losing their homes and being driven into bankruptcy by the fees counties charge when kids get arrested - fees that nonetheless generate little to no profit for taxpayers. Researchers from the UC Berkeley School of Law found that more than 50 counties charge fees for detention, probation supervision, electronic monitoring, drug testing and even representation by a public defender. Co-author Stephanie Campos-Bui, a clinical supervising attorney with the Policy Advocacy Clinic at the UC Berkeley School of Law, says many kids who get into trouble come from struggling families, so the fees are counterproductive and cause even more family strife.

The report shows that San Diego, Orange, Kern and Ventura counties charge the most in fees. But Sacramento County just voted a month ago to stop charging their fees altogether and forgave the debt that families there had accrued, some dating back to the 1970s. Bui says San Francisco County has never charged the fees. And Los Angeles, Butte, Alameda, Contra Costa and Santa Clara counties all have re-evaluated their fees in the past year, citing fiscal reasons and a desire to improve a system that disproportionately harms families of color. "Santa Clara County ended their fees in January," she adds. "They were spending over $450,000 in staff and resources and only collected $400,000. So, a net loss." A bill currently before the state Legislature, Senate Bill 190, would ban collection of fees in the juvenile-justice system across the state.

"Many families can't afford to pay even $50 a month, let alone $500 a month," she says. "When these fees are assessed, they become a civil judgment against a family that is enforceable through wage garnishment and tax-rebate intercepts."

LOS MISTERIOS DE LORD GANESHA Mario Jiménez Castillo El Observador

“Ganesh o Lord Ghanesa” como se le conoce en la religión hinduista, es uno de las deidades más venerados en la India y países vecinos, actualmente su culto se está propagando rápidamente en todo el mundo debido a sus milagrosas proezas y favores que obra en la vida de aquellos que le invocan. A Lord Ghanesa se le conoce como el espíritu que remueve los obstáculos, el que abre los caminos, el que le lleva de la mano para que encuentre la buena suerte. El que abre las puertas, el que ayuda en todo proyecto, trabajo o negocio que ha de iniciarse; quién le guía fructíferamente en el camino al éxito. No hay problema ni barrera que él no logre vencer, es un espíritu “bodishatva”, aquel que ha vivido a través de las diez etapas de purificación espiritual y se ha preparado para entrar en el Nirvana. Si se siente estancado, si siente que su vida no emprende el camino en ascenso que desea, si siente que no ha alcanzado lo que se merece o simplemente cree que todas las puertas se han cerrado; abra su corazón a una nueva experiencia espiritual y pídale con entera devoción el favor que necesita, Lord Ghanesa es un espíritu elevado, le agradan las velas blancas y color rosa, los perfumes exóticos y los inciensos de la India. Su apariencia es muy peculiar pues posee cuatro manos y tiene la figura de un niño con la cabeza de elefante, su mitología es extensa y su culto se ha extendido en todas las sectas del hinduismo y también se le venera dentro del budismo. Ganesh tiene muchos nombres y todos ellos conforman los aspectos de todos los caminos que él rige, le llaman por ejemplo,

Ganapati, Vinayaka, Vignesha, Shri, Sri y Sree. A los que le veneran se les conoce como Ganapatyas y una de las formas que utilizan para venerarlo es a través de los cantos:“Ganesha-sajasrarama” canto que invoca sus múltiples nombres y a que su vez procede del Ganesha-purana, escritura antiquísima que relata diversos métodos de invocación y veneración al santo. También se le venera en la escritura Ganapati-atharvasirsa y en el Magdala –purana. La oración Ganesha-chalisa es una de las escrituras más hermosas dedicadas en su honor. El culto a Lord Ganesha es muy antiguo, se puede trazar en sus inicios a unos 700 a 900 años antes de Cristo, aunque algunos historiadores opinan que data del siglo V de la misma era. Y se cree que llegó a alcanzar un gran apogeo en el año 1000 de la era actual. Se le considera junto a Shivá, Lakshmi y Vishnu, como una de las figuras más veneradas en las naciones que conforman el sub-continente Indio. Su nombre proviene del sánscrito y significa: Señor de los Ganas, o Señor de las multitudes.

En cuanto a su origen hay muchas leyendas, unas de ellas, relatan que siendo niño perdió la cabeza a manos de su propio padre, Shivá; quién al ver muy afligida a la madre de Ganesh, Párvati; le prometió colocar en el cuerpo de Ganesh la cabeza del primer ser vivo que pasara por la puerta, y en ese instante pasó un elefante. En las últimas dos décadas el culto a Lord Ghanesa, ha encontrado mucha aceptación en la comunidad espiritualista, se le invoca en ceremonias y consagraciones místicas. Bendecidos sean tus dones espirituales milagrosos, bendecido seas “Lord Ghanesa”.

ARE YOUR KIDS’ TOYS SPYING ON YOUR FAMILY?

New California bill would require privacy, disclosure for internet toys, devices these toys have voice recognition and can record conversations and collect children's names, location and even where they go to school. "Because many of these toys and devices often lack even basic security features, they are particularly vulnerable to hacking, cyber attacks and those who would do ill will to our children," Jackson said. Senate Bill 327 also would apply to other internet-connected devices such as smart refrigerators, thermostats and digital assistants, requiring that companies tell consumers where their data ends up and explain their privacy protections.

Suzanne Potter California News Service SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- A bill to make sure your kids' toys aren't spying on them had its first hearing before the state Senate Judiciary Committee on

Tuesday, May 9th. The so-called Teddy Bears and Toasters Act would require manufacturers of smart toys and devices to install privacy protections and notify consumers about what it records or transmits. State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson said some of

Technology has always driven massive changes in the business of television. The movement from the Broadcast era to the Pay TV era was powered by the new technologies of cable and satellite. And the engine of the next major shift — from cable to OTT (over the top) — is powered by broadband video technology. For the first ten years of the consumer web — circa 1994 to 2004 — internet video quality

was laughable. Those of us who predicted that the Net would disrupt television were laughed at. How could a video the size of a postage stamp compete with ESPN? We queued up tiny videos to buffer on our desktops and waited, and waited for a 15-frame-per-second video that usually sputtered and died. As recently as 2006, video made up just 12% of internet traffic. By 2010, video was the largest category of internet traffic. It now accounts for roughly 70% of internet traffic. Now, broadband video quality meets, and in many cases

Common Sense Media CEO Jim Steyer supports the bill and said consumers still are largely in the dark about the ramifications of the "internet of things." "We are now creating devices that are in your home, monitoring your actions, tracking your behavior, in some cases selling, giving away, your data to people you have no idea have that data," Steyer said. He said there is no legislative movement on this at a national level, so California is leading the way. One particular doll, the "My Friend Cayla" doll that interacts with children like a friend, already has been banned in Germany because of privacy concerns but the toy is still available in the United States.

exceeds, “broadcast quality” as defined by traditional MVPDs (multichannel video programming distributors). According to a study by Cisco, video’s portion on American bandwidth will hit 90% by 2020. This shift is the biggest change to television in a generation. A recent Nielsen study shows that Americans 18-34 years old spend roughly 30 hours a week on smartphones, tablets, and other digital devices, with video occupying the vast majority of that time.

already are voluntarily taking steps to protect customers' privacy.

What of the ever-better, ever-cheaper largescreen displays? For a generation that prefers mobile and laptop, that matters less and less. It’s long been reported that Netflix can take up almost half of US bandwidth at peak hours. Sandvine, for example, reports that Netflix accounts for over 35% of web traffic in North America, followed by YouTube at 17.5% and Amazon Video at 4.3%. On average, Netflix customers consume 125 million hours a day. And on a big day (such as January 8, 2017), single-day viewership hours have approached 250 million. Sandvine’s study concluded that viewers consume over 800,000 minutes of internet video per second each day. This increase in quality is powering a new generation of solutions. It has allowed Roku to garner 18% of US homes, Amazon’s Fire TV to grab 12%, Google’s Chromecast to get 8%, and Apple TV to grow to 5% (according to ComScore’s 2017 Cross-Platform Future

in Focus study). And according to Nielsen, 56% of US homes now have an SVOD (subscription video on demand) subscription — more than have DVRs. And OTT revenue is growing. In 2014, about 50% of viewers paid $9 or more for an SVOD service. According to TiVo, that’s grown to over 65%. The rise of OTT has been powered by the intersection of several trends: • The increased quality of broadband video • The convenience of on-demand TV on mobile, tablet, and laptop • The high-quality user experience offered by OTT providers like Netflix and Amazon • An increasingly global audience hungry for the biggest and most accessible content libraries. Netflix now has 50 million US customers (2x that of Comcast), and 93 million subscribers worldwide. Its $60 billion dollar market cap will allow it to spend $6 billion on original content and acquisitions this year — twice as much as HBO and five times more than Showtime — with a $1 billion marketing budget and $1 billion tech budget as well. Welcome to the new age of television.
