WHY GENERIC DRUGS ARE HIGH PRICED

O

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR

ne of the concerns of public policy is finding a way to deliver heath care services at a reasonable cost. There is much resistance to the creation of programs which would deliver health care services as a right because of the resistance to any and all changes by the private sector, especially the medical insurance industry (which may be eliminated by proposed Health Care for All proposals. Prescription drugs have been high priced because Big Pharmaceutical firms hold patents for 18 years. So, during 1984, the U.S. Congress created the GENERIC DRUG industry to compete with high-priced prescription drugs whose patents had expired. The thought was that when several drug producers entered the market with their competitive generic drug product, lower prices and elimination of shortages would result. That is not what is happening today according to a “60 Minutes” CBS-TV program report broadcast on TV this past Sunday, May 12, 2019 by CBS. The U.S. Congress received notices that a generic drug costing $60 per bottle (100 pills) suddenly was priced at $142 (a price hike of 142%!). Congress asked the Department of Justice to investigate. (DOJ) issued subpoenas, and hearings were held (circa 2014). Connecticut's Attorney General assigned two lawyers to investigate. It took five years to document and establish the evidence which resulted in having 40 States join Connecticut's 500page class action lawsuit which

José López Zamorano La Red Hispana

alleges that the executives and sales managers of the entire Generic Drug Industry were involved in price-fixing, market sharing resulting in profiteering. The alleged price fixing was being applied to over 1,200 generic drugs. The two lawyers had gathered 19 million documents (many of which were text, phone and email records). At first, analysis of this massive data base resulted in no insights and relationships. But then, certain behavior patterns were discerned and established when phone calls and text messages were analyzed using a program developed for criminal investigations by police departments. What became apparent was a timing relationship of text messages and phone conversations between high level management & executive staff of generic drug firms which were supposed to be competitors. Invariably, price hikes of 200% or more happened soon afterwards. They had documented all communications. These are all related to pricing hikes which based upon agreements reached over the phone and supported by texted messages. One message included the statement “We will play nice in the sandbox, don't worry.” THIS COLLUSION IS TOTALLY ILLEGAL and will receive due process court appraisal and adjudication. A 500-page submittal has already been made to the appropriate U.S. Federal District Court. As seems to be customary, all generic drug producers have already made public statements of not being responsible for or having done anything wrongful or illegal. It will take several years for the courts to process and adjudicate what happened and who is responsible. The final clip of this 60 Minutes CBS-TV report reveals an outcome of these alleged pricefixing schemes. A primary care

physician who directs a rural clinic which serves 14,000 low income clients, comments on the fact that this $100 billion dollar per year generics drug industry used to provide low cost prescription drug alternatives. Today many low-income heads of households must choose between purchasing needed medications or placement of food on the table or payment of rent. When the patientclient cannot afford needed generic medications, the Clinic purchases and supplies essential medications. However, restricted budgets are forcing that rural clinic to consider closure of the clinic which serves an underserved rural community (meaning that already that community is not being served by an adequate number of physicians, nurses and allied health professionals. The ripple effect of prescription drug price fixing filters down to impoverished communities. Now imagine that clinic being in a low-income ghetto. The local Gardener Family Health Network located in San Jose, CA targets this same type of low-skilled, low income community and its CEO Reymundo Espinoza has faced these same issues. What can our elected officials and community leaders learn from the above 60 Minute Special Report which is very timely? The first item is that BIG GOVERNMENT is not the enemy of We, the People as stated by past President Reagan (1975). Government Agencies, such as these State Attorney General Agencies (AG's), Federal Drug Administration (FDA), and Department of Justice (DOJ) must be provided adequate budgets to underwrite and perform appropriate levels of CORPORATE ACTIVITY MONITORING designed to locate and identify any and all corporate wrongful and illegal actions early on.

Fortunately, CA's AG Javier Becerra has been doing a very good job for CA. It would be good if more registered voters, especially Hispanics, would tell him than they appreciate his personal values and official actions taken on behalf of We, The People. An additional item is that participating corporate executives and management must be jailed and demoted. In the recent past, those financial industry executives who peddled DERIVATIVES plus bank executives who fired 6,000 clerks who would not create bogus loan and credit accounts designed to increase the share price of the bank (Wells-Fargo), no executive served prison time. It is not enough to force the corporation to return the illgotten funds by payment of a penalty for the wrongful illegal actions committed. An essential consideration is that all monitoring and audit efforts must have knowledgeable individuals who have NO CONFLICT OF INTEREST. I note that the recent gerrymandering of voting districts is an excellent example of this self-serving action which undercuts the power of the registered voter to influence future election outcomes. A reality is that whistle blowers need to be rewarded and protected from retaliation acts. Legislation must be crafted which become law of the land that accomplishes this task. We, The People must support its local independent press at a higher level. EO's annual budget since 1980 has never exceeded $1 million. Today the national press is owned and operated to generate influence and profits and to disseminate propaganda which promotes ideologies. The Trump Administration has favored those who are already wealthy, influential and possess power and dominion.

¿OPERACIÓN LIBERTAD O GUERRA FRÍA?

i no fuera por la realidad de una crisis humanitaria y política, las escenas serían irresistibles para una película justiciera con evocaciones de la Guerra Fría: Empujado por su pueblo y por un brote de insurrección militar, el repudiado dictador llega a la pista de despegues del aeropuerto para abandonar el país, pero es convencido de último momento de permanecer. Al mismo tiempo miles de ciudadanos se lanzan a las calles con la esperanza de ser los motores de un cambio político y social, pero sus sueños son arrollados por una tanqueta blindada del régimen. Mientras, desde Washington y Moscú, los dos rivales geopolíticos mueven los hilos para propiciar un desenlace favorable a sus intereses. Hasta el momento de escribir estas líneas, la apuesta del

These mainstream media do not deal with local issues in an intimate manner as do the local privately owned and operated publications whose mission is to disseminate truthful, factual and useful information which empowers their readers to make better decisions in their own best interests. If health care is to become accessible and affordable, then its costs of production and delivery must become factually known. Its cash flow must not be excessively influenced by the medical insurance industry which has a profit motive. I have never experienced an open debate which tried to determine, “What is a fair return on investments made?” The current practice is to get as much of the available money as you can. The outcome is a very severe income disparity and wealth disparity. Our government must collect fair taxes from the ultra-wealthy by limiting tax avoidance policies and practices. Too many corporate individuals pay no taxes at all which means that the rest of us end up subsidizing the very infrastructures used to communicate, travel, and distribute goods and services which government supports. As tax-paying stakeholders (really share-holders) we must be ever vigilant, responsible and accountable. So, plan to be involved and stay involved. The reason WHY GENERIC DRUGS ARE HIGH PRICED is that the lack of monitoring (which is not regulatory') was not routinely practiced. We, The People must always “Trust, but verify”. We must develop and perfect a better distribution of wealth to enable and support the American living standard we all may enjoy and experience. Keep in mind that it is the American consumer economy which has made America a Great Superpower.

he decision to return to school is not made lightly. While earning a degree can be highly rewarding in the form of better career opportunities and higher pay, the path to get there can be filled with challenges, especially if you’re trying to fit school and studies in with your work and family responsibilities. An education unlocks so many doors. It’s worth taking the time to make sure you’re opening the door that’s right for you. Before you register for that first class, it’s important to consider and plan for how you’re going to get it all done, from working out an arrangement with your workplace to accommodating your school schedule and enlisting help from family members to get chores done. Here are top questions every potential student should ask themselves before they begin the journey. WHAT ARE MY CAREER GOALS? When you’re looking at a specific college program, it’s good to take a step back and examine your goals and motivations and how going back to school fits in. If you’re hoping the degree or certification will lead to a promotion or pay increase so you can better support your family, it’s important to know how that will happen. To get a gauge on the local market, search for job openings in your chosen field.

High tuition costs and student loans can be a source of worry for many students. Before you commit to a school, be sure to take some time to uncover resources that will make your education more affordable. Start by talking to the financial aid office. Some institutions offer scholarships and financing options, as well as programs that incentivize students to do well. For instance, Strayer University automatically enrolls bachelor’s students in its Graduation Fund, which allows students to earn one no-cost course for every three classes successfully completed. These classes can be redeemed in the student’s final year of their bachelor’s degree program. As long as students stay continuously enrolled, these credits have the potential to reduce the cost of a bachelor’s degree by up to 25 percent. Other cost-reducing avenues at other schools include research scholarships and grants, which may be available to people in certain fields. Also, don’t forget to talk to your employer. Many workplaces offer tuition assistance programs to their employees. DOES THE PROGRAM OFFER FLEXIBILITY FOR MY BUSY SCHEDULE? Earning a degree or certification is a major commitment. For some students, work and family responsibilities can elbow their way into a busy school schedule. “It helps to know the availability and quality of flexible options offered by your school. These offerings can help make your educational experience more manageable and enjoyable,” said Brian Jones, president of Strayer University. There are programs structured so students can learn at their own pace.  FlexPath  — available at Capella University — gives students the flexibility to complete coursework at a speed that is comfortable for them. Students are evaluated by how well they demonstrate competency in a course, so whether it takes two weeks or 12, they’re free to move on to their next course at their own pace. Once you flesh out the answers to these key questions, you can start taking classes with the confidence that your chosen program is right for you and your career.

a decisión de regresar a la escuela no se toma a la ligera. Si bien obtener un título puede ser altamente gratificante en forma de mejores oportunidades de carrera y mejores salarios, el camino para llegar allí puede estar lleno de desafíos, especialmente si está tratando de adaptarse a la escuela y los estudios con sus responsabilidades laborales y familiares. Una educación abre tantas puertas. Vale la pena tomarse el tiempo para asegurarse de que está abriendo la puerta adecuada para usted. Antes de inscribirse en esa primera clase, es importante tener en cuenta y planificar cómo lo va a hacer todo, desde elaborar un acuerdo con su lugar de trabajo hasta acomodar su horario escolar y solicitar la ayuda de los miembros de la familia para hacer las tareas. Aquí están las preguntas principales que cada estudiante potencial debería hacerse antes de comenzar el viaje. ¿CUÁLES SON MIS OBJETIVOS PROFESIONALES? Cuando estás mirando un programa universitario específico, es bueno dar un paso atrás y examinar tus metas y motivaciones y cómo encajar en el regreso a la escuela. Si esperas que el título o la certificación te lleve a una promoción o aumento de sueldo para que pueda apoyar mejor a su familia, es importante saber cómo sucederá eso. Para obtener un indicador en el mercado local, busque ofertas de trabajo en el campo elegido. Si tiene tiempo, siéntese para entrevistas informativas con personas en el campo para darle una idea más clara de cómo un título o certificación puede ayudarlo. Finalmente, algunas instituciones brindan apoyo e información a los futuros estudiantes. Haga una cita con el centro de carreras para que pueda comprender mejor cómo un cierto grado avanzará en su carrera o lo ayudará a alcanzar sus metas. ¿CÓMO MANEJARÉ LOS COSTOS DE LA EDUCACIÓN? Los altos costos de matrícula y los préstamos estudiantiles pueden ser una fuente de preocupación para muchos estudiantes. Antes de comprometerse con una escuela, asegúrese de tomarse un tiempo para descubrir recursos que harán que su educación sea más asequible. Comience hablando con la oficina de ayuda financiera. Algunas instituciones ofrecen becas y opciones de financiamiento, así como programas que incentivan a los estudiantes a tener un buen desempeño. Por ejemplo, la Universidad Strayer inscribe automáticamente a los estudiantes de licenciatura en su Fondo de Graduación, que les permite obtener un curso sin costo por cada

tres clases completadas con éxito. Estas clases se pueden canjear en el último año del estudiante de su programa de licenciatura. Mientras los estudiantes permanezcan inscritos continuamente, estos créditos tienen el potencial de reducir el costo de una licenciatura hasta en un 25 por ciento. Otras vías de reducción de costos en otras escuelas incluyen becas de investigación y subvenciones, que pueden estar disponibles para personas en ciertos campos. Además, no olvide hablar con su empleador. Muchos lugares de trabajo ofrecen programas de asistencia de matrícula a sus empleados. ¿EL PROGRAMA OFRECE FLEXIBILIDAD PARA MI AGENDA OCUPADA? Obtener un título o certificación es un compromiso importante. Para algunos estudiantes, las responsabilidades laborales y familiares pueden abrirse camino hacia un horario escolar ocupado. “Ayuda conocer la disponibilidad y la calidad de las opciones flexibles que ofrece su escuela. Estas ofertas pueden ayudar a que su experiencia educativa sea más manejable y agradable”, dijo Brian Jones, presidente de Strayer University. Hay programas estructurados para que los estudiantes puedan aprender a su propio ritmo. FlexPath, disponible en la Universidad de Capella, brinda a los estudiantes la flexibilidad para completar los cursos a una velocidad que les resulte cómoda. Los estudiantes son evaluados según su nivel de competencia en un curso, por lo que, si se necesitan dos semanas o 12, son libres de pasar al siguiente curso a su propio ritmo. Una vez que complete las respuestas a estas preguntas clave, puede comenzar a tomar clases con la confianza de que su programa elegido es el adecuado para usted y su carrera.

Esta obra cuenta con cinco personajes principales y dos músicos,

omo todos los años, Teatro Nahual tiene el honor de presentar su nueva obra teatral:

“La primera dama", obra escrita por el reconocido dramaturgo mexicano, Willebaldo López y puesta en escena por la actriz y directora del Teatro Nahual, Verónica Meza. Esta obra teatral, más que una comedia es una farsa política. Una farsa con mucho sentido del humor, que refleja la realidad política absurda que se vive en muchos países actualmente. La obra trata de una pareja perteneciente a un partido político en el poder; un gobernador astuto pero inseguro de sus propias capacidades y su esposa, una mujer arrogante, vacía espiritualmente y sedienta de poder. Ellos están en sus últimos días en el gobierno y la primera dama trama un complot para poder seguir gobernando, y así obtener más beneficios económicos de los que actualmente poseen. El juego de poder y la posición económica juegan un papel primordial en este melodrama. Esta obra refleja una visión bastante realista de la corrupción reinante en muchos de nuestros países; en donde la mentira, la falsedad y las apariencias, confunden a las masas a la hora de elegir a los gobernantes. El final de la primera dama tiene un desenlace inesperado.

Isidro Jiménez y Gerardo Fernández. El estreno de “La primera dama” se presentará el viernes 24 de mayo a las 8 de la noche, Con 4 funciones más, los días, sábado 25 de mayo a las 8 de la noche; domingo 26 de mayo a las 2 de la tarde; viernes 31 de mayo a las 8 de la noche y sábado 1 de junio a las 8 de la noche. Las funciones se llevarán a cabo en MACLA (Movimiento de Arte y Cultura Latinoamericana) 510 South 1st St, San José, CA 95113 Teatro Nahual es una organización sin fines de lucro dedica al arte, con más de una década de trayectoria, cuyo fin es entretener al público por medio de la magia del teatro.

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com MAY 17 - MAY 23, 2019 CONSEJOS PARA MANEJAR EL ASMA Y EVITAR SUS DESENCADENANTES TIPS TO MANAGE ASTHMA AND AVOID ITS TRIGGERS que tienen olores y fragancias pueden causar que broten los síntomas del asma. Revise la etiqueta y ajústese a productos seguros y respetuosos con el asma.

2. Evite el humo y el tabaco. Se sabe que cualquier tipo de humo, incluido el humo del tabaco, así como el humo de los cigarrillos electrónicos o el “vapeo”, irritan las vías aéreas del pulmón. Si tiene asma, no fume y evite estar cerca de personas que lo hagan. Si necesita ayuda para dejar de fumar, visite Lung.org/ espanol/dejar-de-fumar o llame al 1-800-LUNGUSA.

ás de 26 millones de estadounidenses viven con asma, lo que incluye a 6.2 millones de niños. Si bien no hay cura, el asma puede manejarse y tratarse a fin de que quienes tienen la afección puedan vivir vidas normales y sanas, tanto bajo techo como al aire libre. Mayo es el Mes de Concientización sobre el Asma y una gran oportunidad para aprender más acerca de los desencadenantes comunes –entre los que tenemos infecciones respiratorias, alérgenos, irritantes, ejercicio y emociones–, así como entender mejor lo que ocasiona sus síntomas. Para empezar, la Asociación Estadounidense del Pulmón está ofreciendo los siguientes consejos. 1. Combata alérgenos en interiores. La caspa de los animales, los ácaros del polvo y el moho son alérgenos comunes que se encuentran bajo techo y que pueden causar síntomas de asma. Mantener un hogar limpio puede ayudar a mantener controlada la presencia de tales alérgenos. Para obtener consejos de limpieza específicos para los alérgenos, así como estrategias para reducir el crecimiento del moho y los ácaros del polvo en su hogar visite, Lung.org/espanol/ asma.html. Esté prevenido: los artículos de limpieza

3. Manténgase al tanto del tiempo. El cambio climático aumenta el riesgo de que la contaminación atmosférica empeore. Debe estar consciente de que fenómenos meteorológicos extremos tales como la sequía, las inundaciones, los incendios forestales y los tornados pueden crear irritantes y alérgenos transportados por aire para las personas con asma. Utilice el Índice de Calidad del Aire que se encuentra en el sitio de la Asociación Estadounidense del Pulmón a fin de mantenerse al tanto de las condiciones actuales y ayudar a protegerse contra la contaminación del aire exterior. Conviene que las personas que sufren de asma eviten ir al aire libre los días en que el valor del índice de calidad del aire esté por encima de 100 o en las categorías naranja, rojo, púrpura o café. 4. Conozca sus propios desencadenantes. Evitar y controlar los desencadenantes de su asma comienza ante todo con identificarlos. Trabaje con su médico a fin de averiguar qué alérgenos o irritantes puedan estar causando los síntomas del asma; una prueba de alergia puede ayudar. Juntos, usted y su médico pueden crear un Plan de Acción Contra el Asma que incluya encontrar soluciones sencillas con objeto de reducir su exposición a los desencadenantes de su asma y facilitarle la respiración. Puede aprender más sobre su asma y cómo manejar los desencadenantes en Lung.org/espanol/asma y a través de un curso interactivo gratuito de una hora en línea en Lung.org/espanol/asthma-basics-enespanol. Si sufre de asma o ama a alguien que la padece, tome medidas para comprender mejor la afección y reducir la presencia de desencadenantes comunes en su vida cotidiana.

ore than 26 million Americans live with asthma, which includes 6.2 million children. Although there is no cure, asthma can be managed and treated so that those with the condition can live normal, healthy lives, both indoors and outdoors. May is Asthma Awareness Month and a great opportunity to learn more about common triggers - among which we have respiratory infections, allergens, irritants, exercise and emotions - as well as to better understand what causes their symptoms. For starters, the American Lung Association is offering the following tips. 1. Fight allergens indoors. Animal dander, dust mites and mold are common indoor allergens that can cause asthma symptoms. Maintaining a clean home can help keep the presence of such allergens in check. For specific allergen cleaning tips, as well as strategies to reduce mold growth and dust mites in your home, visit Lung.org/asthma. Be forewarned: cleaning items that have odors and fragrances can cause asthma symptoms to sprout. Check the label and stick to safe and respectful asthma products. 2. Avoid smoke and tobacco. It is known that any type of smoke, including tobacco smoke, as well as the smoke of electronic cigarettes or "vaping", irritate the airways of the lung. If you have asthma, do not smoke and avoid being around people who do. If you need help to

stop smoking, visit Lung.org/stop-smoking or call 1-800-LUNGUSA. 3. Stay on top of time. Climate change increases the risk of air pollution getting worse. You should be aware that extreme weather events such as drought, floods, wildfires and tornadoes can create irritants and airborne allergens for people with asthma. Use the Air Quality Index found on the American Lung Association's site to keep abreast of current conditions and help protect against outside air pollution. It is recommended that people suffering from asthma avoid going outdoors on days when the value of the air quality index is above 100 or in the orange, red, purple or coffee categories. 4. Know your own triggers. Avoiding and controlling the triggers of your asthma begins with identifying them first. Work with your doctor to find out what allergens or irritants may be causing asthma symptoms; An allergy test can help. Together, you and your doctor can create an Asthma Action Plan that includes finding simple solutions to reduce your exposure to your asthma triggers and make it easier for you to breathe. You can learn more about your asthma and how to handle the triggers at Lung.org/asthma and through a free online one-hour interactive course at Lung.org/asthma-basics. If you suffer from asthma or love someone who suffers, take steps to better understand the condition and reduce the presence of common triggers in your daily life.

AN JOSÉ, Calif.— AT&T and the City of San José are expanding their existing relationship by leveraging smart city solutions to strengthen the City’s efforts to bridge San José’s digital divide. As part of this collaboration, AT&T will deploy Internet of Things (IoT) technology across 14 San José Parks to provide public WiFi connectivity, improve park lighting quality, expand public safety capabilities, and reduce energy usage across the City. AT&T is also providing $200,000 in contributions to help local community organizations tackle the digital divide. The donation will offer seniors, youth, and underrepresented communities’ access to resources, including digital literacy training and access to devices. “While we're making progress on bridging San José's digital divide, we still have much work to do. This collaboration will offer our City another tool as we continue efforts to expand access to the devices and connections critical to success in our Valley. Our collaboration will AT&T also leverages technology to help make tangible improvements to safety in public spaces,” said San José

• AT&T is also providing $200,000 in contributions to Youth Connections Foundation, Yu-Ai Kai Community Center, and Somos Mayfair. “By taking a programmatic approach to smart cities, cities can truly optimize their investments in technology,” said Michael Zeto, vice president and general manager of smart cities, AT&T. “Our smart lighting controllers in city parks and our $200,000 donation for community groups to help close the digital divide are just a few examples of how we’re helping San José better the community.” About the City of San José’s Digital Inclusion Efforts: This public-private partnership is a part of Mayor Liccardo and the City of San José’s larger digital inclusion strategy, which aims to bridge the digital divide for the nearly 100,000 San Joséans with no reliable access to internet and internet-enabled devices. To advance these efforts, San José announced three deals with each major telecommunications company last year to usher a nearly half-a-billion-dollar investment in the City’s telecommunications infrastructure. The agreements stand as the country’s largest, help ensure a more equitable deployment of small-cell technology, and include dozens of millions of dollars for San José’s Digital Inclusion Fund, which will help connect nearly 50,000 San Joséans in an effort to bridge San José’s digital divide.

El esfuerzo servirá para ampliar el Wi-Fi de la comunidad, mejorar la seguridad pública, la eficiencia energética y reducir el impacto ambiental en los parques.

"HARVEST SEASON", CALIFORNIA WINE WITH MEXICAN INGREDIENTS

David Villafranca EFE

os Angeles - From migrants crossing the border to work in vineyards to oenologists to winery owners, the television documentary "Harvest Season," which debuted this Monday on PBS, explores the influence and importance of Mexicans in California's wine production. Napa County, that magnet for wine lovers, is the setting for this film, which not only tells the stories of Mexicans involved in this industry, but also takes a fleeting glance at the passion this drink has sparked over the centuries. "Wine has inspired so much poetry, so much literature...For me, it's rather simple: despite all we have studied with regard to science and cultivation, there continues to be a kind of magic in making good wine. There's something that's beyond our control," filmmaker Bernardo Ruiz said in a telephone interview with EFE. "It has something in common with movies, above all with documentaries. We can plan a lot, prepare all the details, do interviews, have the best team...but the moment we begin the shoot, what happens in front of the camera is beyond our control," the twotime Emmy nominee added. Ruiz, who was born in the Mexican state of Guanajuato but grew up in New York City, directed the documentaries "Reportero" (2013) and "Kingdom of Shadows" (2016). He now says that though "Harvest Season" is a novelty in his filmography, he has always been interested in the "love-hate relationship" between the United States and Mexico. "I was looking for a change. I had already made two documentaries about the so-called war on drugs in Mexico and the attacks on journalists. Now I wanted to do something closer to life, something more beautiful, and this was my way of exploring the same subjects but through other eyes," he said. "Harvest Season" portrays the lives of entrepreneurs of Mexican descent like Gustavo Brambila and Vanessa Robledo, whose families have been dedicated to California's vineyards for generations. The film also takes a close look at Mexican laborers like Rene Reyes, who travel hundreds of kilometers (miles) to spend months working hard among the vines, far away from their families. "I wanted to tell a story in stages and show the different Latino and Mexican-American experiences," said Ruiz, who noted that very seldom does anyone speak of "second, third or fourth generation Mexicans" making wine in California or about the dilemmas they feel because of their mixed identity

MAY 17 - MAY 23, 2019

Gustavo came to the US at 3 years old. What he feels is an obligation through his mother to return to Jalisco, but he isn't from there - he's from Napa. He's more Californian than anything, but he has that conflict. He feels the call to return, but at the same time he's scared he won't be accepted there," Ruiz said. The documentary also delves deeply into the lives of migrant workers. "All the emotions of the film are in the scene in which Rene, after being in California for five months, returns to his village in Michoacan and sees his wife and daughters. On the one hand, he returns with his own harvest: the computers he grandly gives to his daughters. On the other is his absence that the family has had to suffer," Ruiz said. "As a director, it gave me something of a chill to film that moment of intimacy, but I also liked the fact that we could capture it because it continues to be an invisible reality for many in the US: the cost of labor, the price paid by those who come to work, the sacrifices they make," he added. On top of that, Mexicans have to put up with the racism pushed by the US extreme right. "The current phenomenon is parallel to other moments in history. In the Great Depression of the 1930s there was a massive deportation of Mexicans. Afterwards, during World War II, there was a massive importation of Mexican workers with the Bracero Program. Then, in the '50s, there was Operation Wetback, and the deportations began all over again," he recalled.

pero al mismo tiempo teme que no lo acepten allí ", dijo Ruiz.

os Ángeles - Desde los migrantes que cruzan la frontera para trabajar en viñedos, pasando de enólogos a los propietarios de bodegas, el documental televisivo "Harvest Season” (Temporada de cosecha), que debutó este lunes en PBS, explora la influencia e importancia de los mexicanos en la producción de vino de California.

El documental también profundiza en la vida de los trabajadores migrantes.

El condado de Napa, ese imán para los amantes del vino es el escenario de esta película, que no solo cuenta las historias de los mexicanos involucrados en esta industria, sino que también echa un vistazo a la pasión que esta bebida ha despertado a lo largo de los siglos. "El vino ha inspirado tanta poesía, tanta literatura ... Para mí, es bastante simple: a pesar de todo lo que hemos estudiado con respecto a la ciencia y el cultivo, sigue habiendo una especie de magia para hacer un buen vino. Hay algo que está más allá Nuestro control ", dijo el cineasta Bernardo Ruiz en una entrevista telefónica con EFE. "Tiene algo en común con las películas, sobre todo con documentales. Podemos planear mucho, preparar todos los detalles, hacer entrevistas, tener el mejor equipo ... pero en el momento en que comenzamos a rodar, lo que sucede frente a la cámara. está fuera de nuestro control ", agregó el nominado dos veces al premio Emmy. Ruiz, quien nació en el estado mexicano de Guanajuato, pero creció en la ciudad de Nueva York, dirigió los documentales "Reportero" (2013) y "Kingdom of Shadows" (2016). Ahora dice que, aunque "Harvest Season" es una novedad en su filmografía, siempre ha estado interesado en la "relación de amor-odio" entre los Estados Unidos y México. "Estaba buscando un cambio. Ya había hecho dos documentales sobre la llamada guerra contra las drogas en México y los ataques a periodistas. Ahora quería hacer algo más cercano a la vida, algo más hermoso, y esta era mi forma de hacerlo. Explorando los mismos temas, pero a través de otros ojos ", dijo. "Temporada de cosecha" retrata las vidas de empresarios de ascendencia mexicana como Gustavo Brambila y Vanessa Robledo, cuyas familias han estado dedicadas a los viñedos de California durante generaciones. La película también analiza de cerca a los trabajadores mexicanos como Rene Reyes, que viajan cientos de kilómetros para pasar meses trabajando duro entre los viñedos, lejos de sus familias. "Quería contar una historia por etapas y mostrar las diferentes experiencias latinas y mexicanoestadounidenses", dijo Ruiz, quien observó que muy pocas veces se habla de "mexicanos de segunda, tercera o cuarta generación" que elaboran vino en California o sobre los dilemas. Se sienten debido a su identidad mixta. Gustavo llegó a los Estados Unidos a los 3 años de edad. Lo que él siente es una obligación por parte de su madre de regresar a Jalisco, pero no es de allí, es de Napa. Es más californiano que cualquier otra cosa, pero tiene ese conflicto. Siente la llamada de regresar,

"Todas las emociones de la película están en la escena en la que Rene, después de estar cinco meses en California, regresa a su aldea en Michoacán y ve a su esposa e hijas. Por un lado, regresa con su propia cosecha: las computadoras Él da grandemente a sus hijas. Por otro lado, está su ausencia que la familia ha tenido que sufrir ", dijo Ruiz. "Como director, me dio un poco de escalofrío filmar ese momento de intimidad, pero también me gustó el hecho de que pudiéramos captarlo porque sigue siendo una realidad invisible para muchos en los Estados Unidos: el costo del trabajo, el precio pagado por los que vienen a trabajar, los sacrificios que hacen ", agregó. Además de eso, los mexicanos tienen que soportar el racismo impulsado por la extrema derecha estadounidense. "El fenómeno actual es paralelo a otros momentos de la historia. En la Gran Depresión de la década de 1930 hubo una deportación masiva de mexicanos. Posteriormente, durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, hubo una importación masiva de trabajadores mexicanos con el Programa Bracero. Luego, en "En los años 50, hubo Operación Wetback y las deportaciones comenzaron de nuevo", recordó.

TRAVEL 9

2019 GMC SIERRA DENALI: TAKING A TOUR OF TAHOE SNOW + TRUCK = FUN TIMES AHEAD

Tailgate. This tailgate essentially splits the main tailgate in two, use it conventionally as you would any tailgate. The fun starts when you begin to adjust the smaller tailgate within the main one, which sits at the top portion of the tailgate. This adjustable portion can flip down to create a flat surface which is big enough to place your laptop on if you’re working outdoors, a boombox or drinks for camping/tailgating, or even just some tools.

Arturo Hilario El Observador Recently I had the opportunity to take the all-new 2019 GMC Sierra Denali out to the snowy mountain ranges around South Lake Tahoe. Although now the snow might be melting and the summer version of Tahoe is right around the corner, the exciting aspects of traveling around the Lake are visible all year long. This was especially true during the time I spent with the Sierra Denali as I enjoyed the views, food and occasional gambling at the casinos by the Lakeside. Speaking of views, Lake Tahoe is a jewel to behold, and its nearly pristine, bold-blue color stems from the clean air and water in the region, which also absorbs red light; this leaves that rich blue color that’s hard to find anywhere else. In some areas, the water is crystal clear 70 feet deep, this gives it an otherworldly aspect to it. Although I had been to Lake Tahoe during the snow before, it was the first time I had taken a vehicle that was all-terrain and more than able to handle the elements of a snowy April in California/Nevada. The unique thing about South Lake Tahoe is that the town sits squarely on the border of the Golden State and the Silver State. This is why there’s casinos so close in proximity. Beyond the “Vegas Jr.” status, there was a lot more to behold this trip, and it all started with our ride. The 2019 Sierra Denali provides a very comfortable ride, not for being a pick-up truck, but for being a vehicle, and with that brings so much to the table in terms of comfort, driving tech and reliability. Some of the best features I’ve ever had in a car happened to be in this halfcab. I am not essentially the fit for someone that would need a pick-up truck. I do very little in terms of construction or such labor that would require me to carry up to six thousand pounds or towing up to 13,700 pounds. I write, and sometimes I go camping or head to the beach, activities that this pickup would just be overqualified to do but do it with ease. In fact, I usually go camping in a Honda Civic so anything that

you need to step up into to get in is an upgrade if I’m honest. To start off, the truck’s intuitive infotainment system is smooth, extremely smooth. Clicking through menus, for setting a route through navigation or choosing one of my Spotify playlists, is done with such an ease. GMC has done a great service in how it’s made its main hub of information easy to use. My party and I used these features, and more, to get from Mountain View to Lake Tahoe, and back with nary a gripe.

and I noticed as I drove at night that my use of the HD Rear Vision Camera, which can easily be flipped on and off from a conventional rearview mirror, was amazing to behold. Usually, with most bigger vehicles, you’ll have a certain blind spot or two that you have to get used to. With this truck, the option to flip to the backcamera mirror allowed me to forgo any blind spots, showing a wide-angle view behind the truck, even in the dark. It was actually a great nighttime view, and I must give props to

sights and food, as we would only be there for one full day.   Another thing I noticed, after longer use of the truck was that it used a lot less fuel than I originally imagined when I first set eyes on the very large, and very tall truck. It’s a huge but unfathomably easy to use vehicle, and its highway mileage is great. The aforementioned 5.3-liter EcoTec3 v8 with dynamic fuel management is smooth as can be, and a feature which helps in the fuel savings department is

When we drove up into the mountains to get a better view of the lake, there was snow dusting the road and the allseason tires didn’t flinch. As we set on course, it was apparent that the Sierra’s engine, an impressively smooth 5.3-liter EcoTec3 v8, was able to tackle almost any road. At this time of the season, snow tires are not needed, but according to the signage going up to Lake Tahoe, there definitely at least needed to be all wheel drive on any vehicle traveling up the mountain, which our truck was more than capable of. Even when we drove up into the mountains to get a better view of the lake, there was snow dusting the road and the all-season tires didn’t flinch. Back to our journey to Tahoe, we headed out kind of late,

the GMC tech department for making a feature that is more useful and practical than it is a “gimmick”. So, as my group approached the snowy alpines of the region, we noticed snow began to fall. Such a great sight and feeling to see snow, quietly and gently falling outside in our cabin of warmth and comfort. Leather seats, heat warmers (even in the back-passenger seats) made our arrival one of majesty and eagerness. We pulled into Heavenly, Nevada, and the trip was complete for now, and all that was left was going to bed, and getting ready to hang out in some snow the next day. Our itinerary for the trip included

an auto engine shut off while stopped. This can be turned off, but in my usage, it was barely noticeable, all you can feel is a small shudder as it turns on or off, but it doesn’t waste any time doing so. Speaking of fuel, the 7,000-pound truck can do 17 miles city, 19 combined city and highway, with a whopping 23 miles highway mileage. I can attest to the highway mileage for sure, as the trip, from Mountain View to Tahoe and back, was just about one whole tank of gas. It was pretty great. One other thing that was the wow factor for this truck was it’s new for 2019, and only available with the Sierra, the MultiPro

When you lower the whole tailgate to its flat position, you can then release the smaller tailgate down so you could reach into the truck bed with more ease to grab items. Another setup is popping out an additional “step” from this smaller tailgate, which then serves as a step to get up into the bed, or as a place to rest your feet while sitting on the bed, or lacing up some shoes or boots as I did before we went into the snow. Picture the bed with the tailgate open down and flat, and the top part of the flat tailgate flipping down into an “L” shape. It seems like it wouldn’t be such a big deal, but now I feel I’ll be judging all trucks based on this MultiPro Tailgate feature, which comes standard on all Sierra’s, not just the Denali version. All in all, the day trip that included driving up into the mountains for some majestic views and back down for some pizza dinner at a ski resort was made so much more comfortable and easier with the Sierra Denali as our ride. As we put the truck to bed, we set off to the Nevada side of the town to check out our luck in Lake Tahoe’s two main casinos. Although our group went home without any type of grand prize gambling, I think the trip itself was a win for us all. So, for winter wonder by a bright blue lake, or summer fun, or even just to drive around, this truck will get the job done, and in great style. I also hope everyone gets a chance to experience Lake Tahoe once in their lives, because it’s a jewel that isn’t too far from reach.

WARNING – IMPORTANT INFORMATION California law provides that, for purposes of division of property upon dissolution of a marriage or domestic partnership or upon legal separation, property acquired by the parties during marriage or domestic partnership in joint form is presumed to be community property. If either party to this action should die before the jointly held community property is divide, the language in the deed that characterizes how title is held (i.e. joint tenancy, tenants in common, or community property) will be controlling, and not the community property presumption. You should consult your attorney if you want the community property presumption to be written into the recorded title to the property.

ADVERTENCIA – INFORMACION IMPORTANTE De acuerdo a la ley de California, las propiedades adquiridas por las partes durante su matrimonio o pareja de hecho en forma conjunta se consideran propiedad comunitaria para los fines de la división de bienes que ocurre cuando se produce una disolución o separación legal del matrimonio o pareja de hecho. Si cualquiera de las partes de este caso llega a fallecer antes de que se divida la propiedad comunitaria de tenencia conjunta, el destino de la misma quedará determinado por las cláusulas de la escritura correspondiente que describen su tenencia (por ej. tenencia conjunta, tenencia en común o propiedad comunitaria) y no por la presunción de propiedad comunitaria. Si quiere que la presun-

ción comunitaria que registrada en la escritura de la propiedad, debería consultar con un abogado.

EL ENFRENTAMIENTO CONTINÚA SOBRE EL ACUERDO DE REEMPLAZO DEL TLCAN

STANDOFF CONTINUES OVER NAFTA REPLACEMENT DEAL

Los agricultores de Minnesota están preocupados por el impacto que el acuerdo de reemplazo del TLCAN podría tener sobre ellos.

INNEAPOLIS - Continúa una disputa sobre el acuerdo comercial de Estados Unidos con Canadá y México diseñado para reemplazar el Acuerdo de Libre Comercio de América del Norte. Aunque el presidente Donald Trump firmó el Acuerdo entre Estados Unidos, México y Canadá a fines del año pasado, el acuerdo aún necesita la aprobación del Congreso. Karen Hansen-Kuhn, directora de comercio y gobernanza global del Instituto de Agricultura y Política Comercial, también señala que hay muchos llamamientos dentro de los Estados Unidos para cambiar parte del lenguaje del acuerdo. Ella dice que el TLCAN original significó la pérdida de cientos de miles de granjas familiares, y los agricultores temen que el nuevo acuerdo pueda ser más de lo mismo. "Creo que a muchos grupos de agricultores les preocupa que pueda ser peor", afirma. "Les preocupa que Trump pueda retirarse del acuerdo o que las tarifas aumenten. Ahora todo es muy inestable e impredecible. malo para los agricultores ". Hansen-Kuhn agrega que la sobreproducción es una de las principales preocupaciones de los productores de lácteos de Minnesota y que este acuerdo podría socavar los pedidos para implementar una política similar a la de Canadá. Los productores de lácteos al norte de la frontera tienen una política de manejo que mantiene el suministro de leche en equilibrio con la demanda en el país, ayudando a las pequeñas granjas y confiando en la importación restringida de leche. Hansen-Kuhn dice que eliminaría ese sistema.

USMCA

Sharon Treat, una abogada principal del Instituto de Política Agrícola y Comercial está preocupada por las regulaciones diseñadas para proteger al público que podrían ser demolidas en el nuevo acuerdo comercial. Ella dice que un capítulo de la USMCA se relaciona con las "buenas prácticas regulatorias", que establecen cómo armonizar las regulaciones entre los países, como la inspección de la carne y el etiquetado de los alimentos. Treat dice que el problema es que los comités que deciden esto son en gran parte opacos y dominados por los intereses de la industria, lo que significa que la regulación general podría revertirse al mínimo común denominador. "Cuando estas corporaciones hablan de ello, lo llaman una 'barrera no arancelaria'", señala. "Desde su punto de vista, es una barrera al comercio porque tienen que pagar dinero para cumplir con estas regulaciones, y deberían deshacerse de ". Treat dice que es importante lograr este acuerdo correctamente porque abarca todos los aspectos de la vida de los estadounidenses. "Una vez en su lugar, esto se convierte en una ley que no es algo que se puede cambiar, y creo que eso es una consecuencia realmente significativa de un acuerdo comercial y deberíamos ser mucho más reflexivos sobre lo que implica un acuerdo comercial", subraya.

INNEAPOLIS – A standoff continues over the U.S. trade deal with Canada and Mexico designed to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement. Although President Donald Trump signed the United States-MexicoCanada Agreement late last year, the accord still needs approval from Congress. Karen Hansen-Kuhn, director of trade and global governance with the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy, also notes there are many calls within the U.S. to change some of the language in the agreement. She says the original NAFTA meant the loss of hundreds of thousands of family farms, and farmers are wary that the new deal could be more of the same. "I think a lot of farm groups are just concerned that it could be worse,” she states. “They're worried that Trump might withdraw from the agreement or that tariffs might go up. Everything is so unstable now and unpredictable – and that's bad for farmers." Hansen-Kuhn adds that overproduction is a top concern for Minnesota dairy farmers and that this deal could undercut calls to implement a policy similar to Canada's. Dairy farmers north of the border have a management policy that keeps the supply of milk in balance with demand in the country, helping small farms and relying on restricted milk importation. Hansen-Kuhn says the USMCA would chip away at that system.

Sharon Treat, a senior attorney with the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy, is concerned with regulations designed to protect the public that could be bulldozed in the new trade deal. She says one chapter of the USMCA relates to "good regulatory practices," laying out how to harmonize regulations between countries, such as meat inspection and food labeling. Treat says the problem is that the committees deciding this are largely opaque and dominated by industry interests, meaning regulation across the board could be reverted to the lowest common denominator. "When these corporations talk about it, they call that a 'non-tariff barrier,'” she points out. “It's a barrier to trade, in their view, because they have to pay money to comply with these regulations, and it should be gotten rid of." Treat says it's important to get this deal right because it reaches into every aspect of Americans' lives. "Once in place, this becomes a law that is not something that can be changed, and I think that that is a really significant consequence of a trade agreement and we should be much more thoughtful about what goes into a trade agreement," she stresses Disclosure: Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy contributes to our fund for reporting on Environment, Health Issues, Rural/Farming.

BROADWAY SAN JOSE Q&A: FIDDLER ON THE ROOF

Spanish actress Maite Uzal weighs in on the depth of the revival of “Fiddler on the Roof”, as well as how she went from litigator to actress

W

Arturo Hilario El Observador

chores that she has to do as a housewife, she barely leaves the house and her little farm and her plot of land.

ith a degree in Law and International Affairs, Maite Uzal was ready for a life of litigation and was practicing a career in law for three years until her true passion took the reins. Despite her best intentions within the law field, her heart was set on acting. Eight years later, she is playing the emotionally diverse role of Golde on stage for “Fiddler on the Roof”.

She has to take care of all the daily chores and the girls and really Tevye in many occasions she has to juggle with all of that, multitask so that everyday everything that needs to be done gets done. She’s very strong-willed, she’s very superstitious which Tevye takes advantage of at a certain point of the play, and she’s been described as fierce, and I think the fierceness is a circumstance that she’s born into. She’s very stoic, she’s very strong and the first thing on her mind is her family.

“Fiddler on the Roof” tells the story of a Jewish family at the beginning of the twentieth century, led by father/mother duo of Tevye and Golde. The musical focuses on the family’s struggles, as well as their resolve through dealing with the old marriage traditions of the culture and the new generation’s search for true love. Recently Uzal let us into the world of acting by answering some questions about her own journey from lawyer to performer, as well as her role in “Fiddler on the Roof”, which comes to the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts from May 21 – May 26, 2019. Hello Maite, thanks for the interview. To start off, I wanted to get to know more about your theater roots. How did you get started in the arts? I moved to New York City 8 years ago and there I studied the Musical Theater Integrated Program at the American

What would you say is your favorite part about this role and/or working on this play in general? About this role I think Golde is truly, truly, truly a gift for any actress that plays the roles, because she goes through every single emotion you could think of. There’s comedy, there’s tragedy, all the in between. So that’s very rewarding as an actor, to play all of that. Photo Credit: Courtesy of Broadway San Jose

I said, “You know, this is enough.” And, I auditioned for the school in New York, got admitted, and that was it. And here we are today! Now, does that past career ever come up or have you moved on from that?

I always wanted to be an actress, but it wasn’t until I was older that I had the courage to pursue that passion Musical and Dramatic Academy, and then after that I just started auditioning and insisting and insisting and insisting, and booking jobs, and that was it. Was acting something you had been craving to do from your youth? I see in your resume that you have a law degree. How did that turn into acting? Oh yes. I don’t remember a specific moment or event where I went, “Oh! I want to be an actress.” I have the memory of always wanting to be an actress. I think maybe because my parents took me to every show that they went to since I was very young, meaning a baby, a toddler. So maybe, it was that moment that sparked that passion for theater then. So yes, I always wanted to be an actress, the thing is that it wasn’t until I was older that I had the courage to pursue that passion because initially before that I was a lawyer - what my family wanted me to do. I grew up and was raised and geared towards me studying law, and I guess I used to be very obedient. So, I stared law, I worked as a litigator for three years but then like my passion for theater and me knowing I wanted to be an actress never stopped, it got even worse. So, at one point,

I think that it’s something that we study in depth and that we acquire a significant amount of knowledge were I to play a lawyer. Of course, any actor could do the research and that’s why every professional actor that knows how to do their job will be successful but maybe it’ll ring closer to home for me and maybe I’ll call a colleague from law school and have coffee with him. On the other hand, I do believe it has given me, for example some muscle memory in studying something. Like when you have to study a case it may be easier to go to acting school having that habit of analyzing things and preparing and writing a paper, so for me it wasn’t, “Oh my god I have to read this book! And I have to write the paper!” I had done that so many times, so it was so easy compared to maybe the 18-year-olds who were fresh out of high school. Also, I think that every actor, no matter what character you play, you have to be your characters lawyer. You always have to put their best case forward. How would you describe the story of “Fiddler on the Roof”? I’d say [the play] has three layers to it that are clearly written and beautifully intertwined with each other. When you’re

seeing the show maybe you don’t really realize because it’s like a cake that is really well done. You think you noticed the layers but they all melt in your mouth. It’s about family, it’s about the struggle of a family that grows up together and facing the old way versus the new ways, the traditions, and how the girls in the family challenge those traditions and the parents have to decide if they give into the challenge that is presented to them, or not. Then there is a layer of dialogue between Tevye and god. There’s always a constant dialogue between [them]. Then there is a third layer which makes “Fiddler on the Roof” a story of refugees, not immigrants, because we don’t have a choice and an immigrant does. Which is the fact that in

Then specifically on this production working with all the creative team has been a gift, working with [the director] Bartlett Sher, having been directed by him has been just a privilege and an honor. Also precisely because of his view of the play and the concept that he’s wanted to bring with this revival. For those that haven’t gone to this show, why would you say it would be a great experience or important experience to go to “Fiddler on the Roof”? I've got many reasons but I’m going to try and summarize. They think they don’t know “Fiddler on the Roof” but they have heard the songs. The songs are in their underlying, sort of in their DNA and they’re going to recognize the music and the beautiful score and they’re going to walk out of the theater humming the songs and

Golde is truly, truly, truly a gift for any actress that plays the roles, because she goes through every single emotion you could think of. There’s comedy, there’s tragedy, all the in between. So that’s very rewarding as an actor, to play all of that. 1905 there’s another community who sees us as “the other” and a danger too. So those three layers are combined, it’s a play about love, tradition and refugees really, I think. Could you tell me about your role as Golde? Well, Golde is the sharp-tongued, quickwitted wife of Tevye. See one of the things that struck me as more challenging about this character is that she doesn’t know how to read. Her day revolves around bringing the household afloat. Like all of the million

singing the songs, it happens all the time. They’re going to enjoy the choreography so much, the dances. And third, I am positive that they are going to be touched and transformed by the story because its still so relevant to this day and so powerful. It truly is a celebration of life. “Fiddler on the Roof” will be in San Jose from Tuesday, May 21, 2019 through Sunday, May 26, 2019. Single tickets ($43– $153) are on-sale now at broadwaysanjose. com
