Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR

The current practice of maximizing profits is not enough. The ‘Trickle Down’ economic theory has benefitted only about 500 families whose wealth exceeds that of the rest of us. Some of that wealth is being used to distort governance system in a manner that creates much disparity and inequity. Where is the American Dream today? Where is the belief in a system of meritocracy which provides many opportunities? In the quest to maximize profits, many multinational firms relocated their manufacturing capability to offshore locations where labor and the environment are not protected by OSHA and EPA. Since 1975, the middle class income has remained stagnant or declined. The American skilled labor is educated, innovative, creative and highly productive. However, information technology has developed robotics and automation which is minimizing the available jobs being created when manufacturing capacity is ‘brought back’. The outcome of these developments is that production of goods is rising with lower labor employment levels. Yet retail market analysts keep wondering why ‘consumption levels’ are not increasing. Where are the market analysts who can conceptualize that when the working class have no jobs, no income, no discretionary money in their pockets, the outcome is a reduction in consumption (retail sales) except for the required necessities of life (food, shelter, medical care).

OPINION

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

MAY 29- JUNE 4, 2015

The current paradigm that an individual must work for his/her living is becoming very difficult to ache when manufacturing jobs are eliminated by investments made in automation and robotics. It is time to think of a new paradigm for the distribution of available work (if one is to continue to ‘work for a living’). If that is not possible, is anyone considering the need to reduce the work week from 40 hours per week down to 32 hours per week? During the Great Depression (1929-1941), the workforce at Gary Steel Works (Now US Steel), shared work by working three days one week and two days the following week. That 5-work day income was enough to enable heads of households to continue to meet their responsibilities as ‘breadearners’ for their families. Another approach would be to adjust the current IRS tax code to eliminate all corporate welfare and subsidies. Also require the top 1% to pay higher taxes. Today this sector has the ability to have their lawyers, CPA’s, and lobbyists to find ways to avoid paying a fair share of taxes. And the democratic legislative process is being subverted by their ‘dark money’ (resulting form that Supreme Court Citizen’s United decision). The influential ultra-wealthy need to realize that if the labor force has no no jobs, no income, no discretionary money, then their ability to be participants in a consumer economy is egregiously compromised. One outcome is that ‘profits’ will not be realized. Those corporate shares will not provide the expected dividends the ultra-wealthy receive without participating in productive work.

The view of the top 1% that BIG GOVERNMENT is the problem is myopic at best. Any governance system must be adequately sized to administer and provide the civil services required which include the underwriting of national sovereignty and security costs along with local police capability controlled by local jurisdictions. What is happening today is leading this American nation into enormous debts simply because the influential ultrawealthy do not want to pay their fair share of taxes which support the services provided by an infrastructure that is beginning to fall apart. This nation’s economists need to define “What is a fair profit?” No one knows, so all takes as much as possible. This nation’s working poor are being exploited egregiously. Despite being employed, some still require welfare assistance. Commerce must be adjusted to enable sharing of existing work which provides a living wage. Unions must regain their ‘collective bargaining rights’ so that the laboring class has representatives at those conference tables where economic decisions are made that impact all of us. And, most importantly, that ‘Trickle Down’ economic theory must be replaced by a new paradigm which enables all of us to share the wealth of this nation and its natural resources. Investments must be made in a manner that creates a sustainable economy that delivers the greatest good for the greatest number. The current focus on just profits is not enough. Economic data must include measurements of the current level of impoverishment. A new dynamic economy can be created if we deal with all factors impacting this nation’s residents. The current focus on ‘profits’ is too myopic.

A raíz de sucesivas quejas de condiciones de confinamiento “crueles e inhumanas”, el ICE creará una nuevo comité asesor con expertos en salud y atención a menores, facilitación de la libertades condicionales y medidas para dar el beneficio de la duda a familias que soliciten ser tratados como refugiados.

violando la ley y deben recibir un trato como solicitantes de asilo en Estados Unidos. Para el representante demócrata de Illinois, Luis Gutiérrez, es importante entender las repercusiones de largo plazo que sufren las familias, especialmente los menores de edad, por el efecto de un tratamiento de detención inadecuado, además de las dificultades para obtener una representación legal apropiada. Pero el líder de los demócratas en el Senado fue más allá. “Las reformas propuestas no son suficientes. Ponerle fin a la detención familiar es la única solución. Detener a mujeres y niños que están huyendo de la pobreza extrema, persecución, abuso y violencia es inaceptable y va en contra de nuestros valores fundamentales. Si conoce el caso de un familiar o amigo que se padezca condiciones de confinamiento inapropiadas, siempre existe la opción de contactar a la oficina del congresista que represente su distrito o estado. Alzar la voz y expresar un punto de vista un tema tan importante, es un derecho y una obligación cívica.

EDUCATION

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

MAY 29- JUNE 4, 2015

NAPSI When over 50 percent of the recipients of a national scholarship program are awarded to students in a particular category, it’s time to take notice. This is exactly what occurred when the DELL SCHOLARS PROGRAM Class of 2015 was announced earlier this year, and 152 of the 300 awards were given to AVID students nationwide. AVID, which stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination, is a San Diego-based nonprofit whose mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society. The DELL SCHOLARS PROGRAM provides 300 scholarships annually, and since 2004, has provided students with over $60 million in college scholarships and support services. They reward low-income, highly motivated students who are

better than their numbers indicate and demonstrate the drive to succeed despite personal obstacles. This matches closely with the AVID student profile: one who has made the commitment to enroll in rigorous coursework, improve his or her study skills, and wants to enroll in college. Dell Scholars receive $20,000 each to continue their higher education for the next six years. In addition, the DELL SCHOLARS PROGRAM provides its students with technology, resources, and mentoring to

STATEPOINT Afterschool programs serve 3.8 million Hispanic children nationwide. While a majority of parents report being satisfied with the healthy food and variety of physical activity their child’s program offers, there is still a vast unmet need for such programs, particularly among Hispanic families. The parents of 5.5 million Hispanic children and the parents of the parents of 19.4 million children overall say they would enroll their child in an afterschool program if it were available, according to, “Kids on the Move: Afterschool Programs Promoting Healthy Eating and Physical Activity,” a special report based on responses collected for America After 3PM. “Afterschool programs are a proven, but sometimes underappreciated, tool in the effort to prevent childhood obesity and physical inactivity,” says Jodi Grant, Executive Director of Afterschool Alliance, a nonprofit public awareness and advocacy organization. “We’ve known for a long time that afterschool, before-school and summer programs keep kids safe, inspire them to learn, and help working parents. These new data make clear that they also do a tremendous amount to

help keep kids healthy, now and for the future.”

help children be physically active.

The new survey, which was funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, finds that many parents are unaware of Healthy Eating and Physical Activity (HEPA) Standards for afterschool programs, which recommend at least 30 minutes of morning or afterschool program time for physical activity. The report recommends doing more to ensure that afterschool providers, as well as parents, are aware of the HEPA Standards.

• When asked about opportunities for physical activity, 71 percent of Hispanic parents and 71 percent of African-American parents report that it was very important when selecting their child’s afterschool program.

According to the report: • Most parents agree that afterschool programs should provide healthy food and beverage options for children. • Most parents say that providing healthy food was an important factor in selecting an afterschool program. White and African-American parents were more likely than Hispanic parents to say that their child’s afterschool program serves snacks that include healthy foods (75 percent and 72 percent versus 63 percent). • More than eight in 10 Hispanic parents and AfricanAmerican parents agree that afterschool programs should

• An overwhelming majority of Hispanic parents and African-American parents report that their child’s afterschool program does provide opportunities for physical activity. “The afterschool community is committed to doing even more to stop childhood obesity,” Grant says. “Quality afterschool programs are a vital part of the fabric of our communities, providing a rich array of services children and families need.” National and state-by-state results from that report and from this special report are available at www.afterschoolalliance.org/AA3PM/. With participation in afterschool programs over the past decade growing from 6.5 million to 10.2 million children, increasing support for these programs from government at all levels, philanthropies, businesses and others is crucial, say experts.

BPT La llegada de la primavera representa nuevos comienzos, y es el momento adecuado para poner la casa en orden. Ya sea que esté buscando para comprar por primera vez, remozar una vivienda ya existente, o hacer uso de la plusvalía creada por otras razones, es importante determinar cuál vía es la apropiada para usted, así como conocer las opciones de préstamo disponibles. Por fortuna, Regions Bank y muchas otras instituciones financieras ofrecen varias herramientas y calculadoras gratuitas en Internet para que los consumidores comprendan sus presupuestos, y obtengan el mejor financiamiento para satisfacer sus necesidades. Las personas que compran una vivienda por primera vez, tienen una excelente oportunidad para hacerlo ahora, pues las tasas de interés permanecen en el nivel más bajo históricamente. Primeramente, los compradores deben comenzar determinando lo que les resulta costeable. Además del pago de la hipoteca, los gastos de vivienda están compuestos por impuestos de la propiedad, seguros y cuotas de propietarios, así como el pago de asociación de propietarios. En total, los gastos no deben superar el 28 por ciento del ingreso bruto mensual, y deben dejar espacio para cumplir con los compromisos de otras deudas como préstamos de estudiante, tarjetas de crédito o la letra de préstamo para la adquisición de un vehículo. Cuando se prepare para comprar una vivienda, solicite una pre-aprobación de crédito, para estar listo con una oferta sólida cuando surja la oportunidad. El prestamista considerará, además de revisar el historial de crédito, la cantidad para el pago inicial o enganche, que oscila generalmente entre el 3 y el 20 por ciento. En caso de que se haga un pago inicial inferior al 20 por ciento, el comprador

This can be a dangerous practice—but you can protect yourself. tendrá que adquirir un seguro de hipoteca. Sin embargo, la institución que origina la hipoteca puede proporcionar una amplia gama de opciones de préstamo para optimizar su inversión, desde hipotecas de 15 y 30 años a términos fijos y variables. Si el cambio de estaciones trae como resultado la necesidad de realizar algunas mejoras en una residencia querida, considere el financiamiento de esa remodelación mediante una línea de crédito sobre la plusvalía de la vivienda (Home Equity Line of Credit, HELOC). La elegibilidad depende de cuánta plusvalía se ha creado en la vivienda, y de la proporción préstamo-valor del prestamista. HELOC funciona en gran medida como una tarjeta de crédito, y ofrece flexibilidad, con el pago mensual de una cantidad mínima, y el interés se aplica a la cantidad prestada. Antes de iniciar un proyecto de remodelación, haga una investigación previa. Comience con el prestamista, par determinar el valor de la vivienda, y la cantidad de préstamo disponible. Luego, cree un presupuesto, teniendo siempre en cuenta los gastos inesperados. Trabaje con un profesional prestigioso para definir el proyecto y sus requerimientos, y pida estimados y recomendaciones para seleccionar un contratista con confianza. Algunos prestamistas ofrecen listas de comprobación para aprovechar al máximo la inversión. Otra opción para financiar un proyecto usando la plusvalía de la vivienda es el préstamo sobre la plusvalía de la vivienda (Home Equity Loan, HELOAN). Al igual que con la hipoteca, el préstamo se entrega en una suma total, y se paga en

mensualidades, generalmente durante 10 a 15 años, y a la tasa de interés fija determinada en el momento de asegurar el préstamo. El HELOAN es muy conveniente para el objetivo de una sola vez de incrementar el valor de una vivienda. Tenga en cuenta que tanto el HELOAN o el HELOC tienen su dosis de incertidumbre, pues los gastos mensuales podrían incrementarse, y se deben mantener para evitar el riesgo de una ejecución hipotecaria. No deje de consultar con un profesional para que le ofrezca orientaciones aplicables a su situación específica. Comience con un prestamista que le ayude a identificar las opciones financieras disponibles en la actualidad para compradores y propietarios de viviendas. Con una planificación y creación de presupuesto cuidadosos, el financiamiento que necesita puede estar más cerca de lo que piensa.

NAPS Although Americans are increasingly shopping online and are well aware of the risks that cyber thieves pose, a majority admit they do not take the time to follow basic precautions they know can protect their personal and financial information. A few facts and tips can help you avoid trouble. That is one of the key findings of the CA Security Council’s (CASC) 2015 Consumer Trust Survey, which reveals that: •Most consumers have at least one device they don’t bother password protecting. The most common device left unguarded is the tablet, a device that 61 percent leave unprotected. • On a positive note,

53 percent of respondents identify the padlock as adding confidence in an e-commerce site, with 42 percent associating the green bar and organization name in the URL with greater safety. The green bar indicates a website has earned a special Extended Validation (EV) digital certificate. •43 percent of respondents are happy to use public WiFi without regard to security issues, as long as it is free. •33 percent use just one or two passwords to log in across all their websites. This is especially problematic when considering the number of companies that have experienced breaches that resulted in stolen passwords within the last few years. Digital Security Tips

To help consumers stay secure, the CASC offers these tips: •Look for “https” in the address bar. The “s” means it’s secure. You should also see a padlock symbol. For an added sign that the site is authentic, look for the green browser bar and the website’s name to appear in green. •Update your browser to the latest version, which addresses the most current online risks. •If your browser gives you a message about an untrusted security certificate for a website, don’t proceed. •Wherever possible, don’t allow an organization to keep your payment information on file.

HEALTH

BPT Soft, smooth, fresh and flawless – it’s how parents envision their baby’s skin. Your little one may be born with perfect skin, but protecting that perfection requires work. “The skin acts as a protective barrier, and many environmental factors can affect a baby’s skin,” says Dr. Dyan Hes, medical director of Gramercy Pediatrics in New York City and a pediatrics expert who’s been featured in media ranging from CBS This Morning to the Wall Street Journal and TIME Magazine. “Allergens, UV exposure, heat and even the laundry detergent parents use to wash baby’s clothing can all irritate an infant’s skin.” The arrival of warm weather often comes with an increase in rashes and skin irritation for infants. Fortunately, parents can take steps to help

protect their baby’s skin from common irritants. Hes recommends parents focus on a few key areas: Shield baby’s skin from the sun Melanoma, the most common form of skin cancer, accounts for about 3 percent of all childhood cancers, and just five sunburns in childhood raises lifetime melanoma risks by 80 percent, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation. “Always apply a sunscreen specifically designed for use on infants whenever you take your baby outdoors, even on overcast days,” Hes says. “If you’re not sure what sunscreen to use, talk to your pediatrician. Keep in mind that you can only use sunscreen on infants 6 months and older. Until then you must keep your baby in the shade or provide your little one with a hat and UV protected clothing.” Parents can also shield

babies from the sun with hats, long sleeves, covered strollers and sun shields in vehicle windows. Be aware of irritants lurking in laundry “Infants can be exposed to skin irritants in their own homes,” Hes says. “In fact, laundry detergents are a common cause of contact dermatitis – red, itchy bumps that develop on a baby’s skin wherever it comes in contact with clothing.”Hes recommends expectant and new parents use a laundry detergent that’s hypoallergenic and specifically designed to be gentle on baby’s

Dreft Stage 1: Newborn is for very young babies and expectant families who want to care for their little one’s clothing – and skin – with the familiar hypoallergenic formula that parents and pediatricians have trusted for decades.

MPH, PH.D., chief medical officer for ACAP Health Consulting, professor and director of the Laboratory of Preventive Medicine at Pennington Biomedical Research Center and a member of the Jenny Craig Science Advisory Board, recommends that before people engage in a program, they should do their research and rely on evidence-based approaches for support. He offers the following tips for selecting a weight loss program: Hear from the experts. Read up on the latest in medical research. Recently, a study published in Annals of Internal Medicine, the esteemed journal published by the American College of Physicians, suggests doctors consider recommending Jenny Craig’s weight loss solution to their patients. Jenny Craig was identified as one of the most effective weight loss programs based on evidence that its participants achieved greater sustained weight loss at 12 months, relative to

Parents of older children who still crave that new-baby scent for their laundry, can turn to Dreft Blissfuls – an inwash scent booster (like dryer beads) that imparts that baby fresh scent to fabrics. Visit www.dreft.com to learn more and to view tips for doing baby’s laundry. Help them handle the heat Warm weather can affect infants’ skin in multiple ways. Exposure to heat and chlorinated water can dry out their skin. Babies may also develop a heat rash – an uncomfortable, red, prickly rash that can appear on a baby’s face, neck or bottom. And intertrigo – a raw, oozy red rash that appears in skin folds – can show up at any time of year, but may get even worse in summer. This can be bacterial or fungal, so it’s important to check with your doctor if you see a rash appear in those areas.

control groups. “The authors recognize the importance of sound scientific research for physician referral to weight loss programs,” said Dr. Church. “Their recommendation of top weight loss programs, including Jenny Craig, for physician referral is a win for clinicians who are struggling to provide their patients with clinically proven options to help them achieve their weight and health goals.” Consult your physician. Ask your doctor about the programs that do have data to back up their claims. Discuss options that align with your health and weight loss goals that also take into consideration your lifestyle and personal preferences. Most clinicians will encourage you to achieve a reasonable amount of weight loss, in the range of 5 to 10 percent of your initial weight, as research shows it can reduce the risk of many conditions such as coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke and type 2 diabetes.

To keep baby’s skin from drying, apply a gentle moisturizer specifically designed for infants. Treat any existing rash with petroleum jelly or a moisturizer designed for infant dermatitis. Dress babies in comfortable, loose, lightweight clothing to help prevent prickly heat. Wash little ones with water and a gentle baby soap to prevent dermatitis. Note that over-bathing can lead to dry skin and rashes as well, so make sure your baby does not bathe more than 2-3 times per week. “You should always consult your pediatrician whenever your baby has a rash or other health condition that concerns you,” Hes advises. “Some simple precautions, such as using a moisturizer and a hypoallergenic, gentle laundry detergent, can help parents keep their baby’s skin protected.”

Find a coach. While some people achieve results through self-directed weight loss and exercise programs, many benefit from the added support that comes from a personal coach. Consider a program that incorporates coaching to help you address your motivational drivers, personal goals and unique obstacles that might arise. For example, a personal consultant can offer tips on managing stress eating, dining out, or cooking at home to help meet your weight loss goals. According to Dr. Church, “While obesity continues to be a significant health risk in the U.S., it’s clear that behavioral change is the foundation for sustainable weight loss and successful lifestyle change. Personal support can be a very powerful tool in achieving that goal.” Use the tips above to gain both the knowledge and confidence you need to take that important first step and begin your successful weight loss journey.

FAMILY FEATURES Food waste is a major issue that affects the environment, economy and food security. In fact, according to the Natural Resources Defense Council, American families throw out approximately 25 percent of the food and beverages they buy – the equivalent of about $1,500 wasted each year. As for the major causes of this food waste, the NRDC points to improper or suboptimal storage, poor visibility in refrigerators, partially used ingredients and misjudged food needs. While the issue continues to grow, there are ways for everyone to address these causes and reverse the negative effects food waste has on the environment and the economy—and many people are already making small efforts to do so. According to Glad Food Protection’s Fridge to Fork survey, 87 percent of Americans say they are taking steps to preserve their grocery store purchases, or are finding ways to prepare them for later consumption, helping reduce food waste in their homes. With the coming of warmer temperatures, fresh ingredients will be in ample supply and proper food preparation and protection will be essential to keep fresh foods on the plate and out of the bin. Help combat food waste and keep your food fresher longer with these tips for properly storing your food the day you buy it:

Fruit Whole watermelon should be left at room temperature until ripe then stored whole and uncovered in the refrigerator. Once cut, store cut watermelon halves or slices in a zippered plastic bag and refrigerate.

• Do not wash berries before storing. Place in a single layer in a shallow bowl or into the bottom of a large food protection container lined with paper towels. Cover with plastic wrap or seal the container tightly.

Veggies Store whole heads of lettuce loosely

wrapped in a zipper bag. Once cut, lettuce should be kept in a zipper bag or container. Add a lightly dampened paper towel to keep lettuce crisp. • If still in the husk, refrigerate corn uncovered. Once the husk has been removed, wrap corn cobs tightly in plastic wrap before refrigerating. Raw or cooked kernels can be stored in containers, such as GladWare food protection containers. • Place fresh whole broccoli heads in a large zipper bag, and poke several holes in the bag to allow ventilation. To store cut broccoli, remove the woody stems and cut the rest into florets. Soak in lightly salted water to remove dirt and grit, and dry thoroughly. Place into a storage container.

Meat Keep ground beef in its original packag-

ing until ready to use. If opening before using, wrap meat or beef patties securely in plastic wrap. Ground beef should be used within 1-2 days. • Wrap individual pieces of poultry in Glad ClingWrap, and place into a container or zipper bag. To prevent juices from leaking on other food, store poultry on the lowest refrigerator shelf. Poultry should be used within 1-2 days. • Thoroughly remove excess moisture from fish with paper towels. Place fillets in a container lined with paper towels. If necessary, stack fillets between rows of paper towels. Cover with another paper towel and seal container. If possible, place storage container on a bed of crushed ice inside a larger container. Fish should be used within 2 days.

exciting collaboration,” King said, adding that he is particularly grateful to Santa Clara County supervisors and the California State Board of Equalization for their support and participation.

San Jose CALIFORNIA On May 26, the County of Santa Clara and the Silicon Valley Small Business Development Center (SBDC) hosted a Small Business Summit to address financing and procurement needs of local small businesses and to help stimulate economic growth in the South Bay. The Summit is part of a regional SBDC effort to help entrepreneurs in Northern California develop growth strategies that can transform small businesses by accessing the financing needed to expand, increase sales and create and retain jobs locally. The panels offered an insider’s perspective on how to secure small business financing through traditional and alternative methods and how to access contracting opportunities with federal, state and local government agencies.

Suzanne Potter CALIFORNIA NEWS SERVICE OAKLAND, Calif. - On Tuesday the Oakland City Council Public Safety Committee considers far-reaching privacy rules after protests forced the committee to scale back a large surveillance plan. The Domain Awareness Center would have linked video feeds from public schools, housing projects, traffic cameras, the port, airport and all major intersections with data from facial recognition software, license plate readers and gunshot spotter microphones.

technical assistance to entrepreneurs. Dennis King, director of the Silicon Valley SBDC and the Hispanic SBDC Satellite, said he the summit drew upwards of 300 small business attendees. In addition to the panels, the program includ-

ed multiple small businessfocused workshops and local speakers with an interest in economic growth. “The purpose of [this] event is to give entrepreneurs in Santa Clara County the support, resources and knowl-

edge they need to grow their business,” said Rep. Mike Honda (D-CA17). “We have had so many partners lend their support to development of our Small Business Summit that it’s been an overwhelming and

In his State of the County Address in January, Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors President Dave Cortese called for a continuation of the dialogue the county initiated with the business community in a series of Business Summits in 2012. This Small Business Summit is an important step towards fulfillment of that goal. “Santa Clara County has long been a champion of supporting and sustaining small businesses,” Cortese said. For more information about the Silicon Valley SBDC or to find out how you can apply for services, visit: www.svsbdc.org, or call (408) 395-9800.

“We need to decide what are the appropriate uses of this equipment, if any,” he says. “We need to make that clear up front before we waste time and resources and get equipment that the community ends up opposing.” The privacy policy would activate the system only in times of emergency, put restrictions on who may view the data and limit how long it can be kept. It would also establish a permanent privacy committee. Hofer says there is little proof that largescale surveillance solves much crime.

But two months ago, the council restricted the system to just the port and airport.

“If you’re infringing upon our right to privacy and we’re not getting crime solving benefits, then the balance is tipped in favor of discontinuing use,” he says.

Privacy activist Brian Hofer says people should be able to drive around without being tracked, and hold a conversation on a street corner without being recorded.

The system started as a $3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to protect the Port of Oakland, and was later expanded to cover the entire city.

San Jose’s number of bicycles Increases from 129 to 1,000 The Metropolitan Transportation Commission voted unanimously on Wednesday, May 27, to expand the Bay Area BikeShare program, increasing the number of bicycles from 700 to 7,000 at stations in eight cities and giving special consideration to disadvantaged neighborhoods. The action taken at the MTC

meeting in Oakland, authorized MTC administration to contract with Motivate International to add bike stations in the five cities currently in the program – San Jose, Palo Alto, Mountain View, Redwood City and San Francisco – and start the program in Oakland, Berkeley and Emeryville. The expansion will be done without using public money and makes the Bay Area

BikeShare the 2nd largest in the country. Motivate will fund the costs through corporate sponsorship agreement. Members pay a fee to rent the bikes. San Jose’s number of bikes will increase from 129 to 1,000, and the public will have a say in where the new bike stations are located. Santa Clara County Board President Dave Cortese, who is chair of the Metropolitan

Transportation Commission, was reassured by Motivate officials that there would be a public hearing process. “Twenty percent of the bike stations will be installed

in low-income neighborhoods, offering the service to a broader population of riders,” Cortese said. “Those residents especially need a strong voice in what will work best for them to increase bicycle ridership.” Cortese also asked Motivate officials to take into consideration that parts of San Jose may not fit the urban density model that the company has been focusing on, giving as example the BART extension that will open in the suburban Berryessa area of San Jose in 2017. “We want BikeShare to create connection points between transit stops, whether or not they fall into a density map,” Cortese said.

Suzanne Potter Community Health Centers now are the primary point of care for more than 23 million Americans - with 1,000 clinics in California alone. Many centers are using an integrated care model that takes into account the person’s life as a whole, not just their medical concerns. Some have taken a one-stop-shopping approach, where patients can see a doctor but also get help for underlying social problems such as housing issues, poverty, hunger or depression. Karen McGlinn, chief executive of Share Our Selves, runs five nonprofit clinics in Orange County where case managers look at body, mind and spirit - and connect patients with the right programs. “We have a food bank, we have financial aid available, legal law clinics, a lot of special programs that deal with care for the homeless, the mentally ill,” she said. “So we integrate all those challenges into the delivery of our health-care process.”

Health centers started as part of President Lyndon Johnson’s war on poverty 50 years ago. These federally qualified health centers are nonprofits that accept Medi-Cal and private insurance, and often raise millions in private donations to cover expenses for those who cannot afford it. Open Door Community Health Centers serve 80,000 patients in northwest California near the Oregon border. CEO Hermann Spetzler said the clinics include a community garden, a playground, an exercise circuit and hiking trails - all to inspire people to eat more vegetables and get a move on. “So it is not unusual for a patient to get a prescription that says three times a week we want you to come to the garden and do about 45 minutes worth of gardening, do the exercise routine that we’ve suggested,” he said, “and their vital signs are recorded and added to their chart.” Community health centers are really embracing the concept of wellness - beating back chronic illnesses such as diabetes, obesity and heart disease - one patient at a time. More information is online at shareourselves.org or opendoorhealth.com.

The cities will also need to approve agreements with Motivate. “This is perhaps the greatest public private partnership we have accomplished here at the MTC because it involves the rising star of transportation--the bike,” Cortese said in thanking the MTC staff. Launched in 2013 as a pilot program, the California’s first regional bike sharing service currently has 4,500 annual members and 25,000 casual members who use the mintcolored bikes for short trips.

AVISO PÚBLICO LA CUARTA REVISIÓN DE CINCO AÑOS DE LIMPIEZA EN EL SITIO SUPERFUND LORENTZ BARREL AND DRUM EMPIEZA La Agencia de Protección Ambiental de los Estados Unidos (EPA, por sus siglas en inglés) inició la cuarta Revisión de Cinco Años (FYR) para el Sitio Superfund Lorentz Barrel and Drum en San Jose, CA. La EPA es la agencia principal que supervisa las investigaciones ambientales y las acciones de limpieza, que siguen en camino, en el sitio. El propósito principal de esta revisión es confirmar que las acciones de limpieza en el sitio continúan protegiendo la salud humana y el medioambiente. El Proceso de Revisión Cuando las acciones de limpieza de la EPA dejan contaminación en su lugar en un sitio y por eso no permiten su uso sin restricciones, la ley Superfund requiere una revisión cada cinco años de la seguridad del remedio. Durante la revisión, la EPA evaluará si el remedio está logrando las metas de limpieza del sitio además de cambios en los riesgos potenciales, regulaciones, y conocimiento científico sobre las contaminantes en el sitio. Se realizaron tres revisiones anteriores para este sitio in 2000, 2005, y 2010. Historia del Sitio El sitio se ubica en 1515 South Tenth Street en San Jose en una parcela de siete acres. Comenzando en 1947, la fábrica histórica de reciclaje de tambores recibió más que dos millones de tambores de más de 3,000 partidos hasta que fue cerrada en julio de 1987 por una acción tribunal llevada por el Departamento de Servicios de Salud de California (DHS). Mientras que estaba en operación, la fábrica recibió tambores que tenían varios tipos de químicos peligrosos. Los tambores fueron reacondicionados por una variedad de métodos, y los residuos y los materiales de limpieza fueron desechados hacia depresiones y cuencas en el sitio que drenaron hacia los suelos y la alcantarilla local de aguas pluviales. Después, los tambores fueron devueltos al dueño original o fueron vendidos. En 1989, se agregó el sitio a la Lista de Prioridades Nacionales de la EPA (NPL). Desde los fines de los 1980s hasta el inicio de los 1990s, la EPA realizó varias acciones para sacar los desechos y excavar los suelos contaminados del sitio. En 1998, la EPA firmó un Registro de Decisión (ROD) con un grupo de partidos potencialmente responsables que requirió que los partidos bombeen y traten el agua subterránea contaminada. Este sistema ha sido en operación desde 1992 y continúa evitando que dispersa el agua subterránea. Involúcrese Si tiene preocupaciones o preguntas sobre el sitio, la EPA le gustaría hablar con usted. Para programar una entrevista, por favor póngase en contacto con Heather Parker (hispanohablante), Coordinadora de Participación Comunitaria, a (415) 972-3112 o por correo electrónico a parker.heather@epa.gov para programar una cita antes del 19 de junio de 2015. El informe para la Revisión de Cinco Años será finalizado para el 30 de septiembre de 2015 y será disponible en la red después de esta fecha a: www.epa.gov/region09/lorentzbarrel&drum. CNS#2755244

Arturo Hilario EL OBSERVADOR Location: 12th and Produce- Stall #420 “To come to the flea market is like going to an outdoor mall; you get sunshine, you get different types of food, everything from every background,” says José Delgadillo, a produce vendor at Berryessa Flea Market. Delgadillo is proud to call Produce Row at the Flea Market the “home base” for his wholesale and retail produce business, Delgadillo’s Produce. Born and raised in San José, he says that the family business has been a satisfying experience for over 30 years. Delgadillo recalls that the family business began when he was 5 years old. “My father at one point worked at a cannery for a few years and saw that there was potential in the fruit business, and started off with a table of cherries, and oranges.” From these roots it flourished into something bigger. Delgadillo’s family, including his siblings and his daughter, all work within the family business. “Here we are, for quite a long time here at the Berryessa flea market. My father started the business and here I am, taking over.”

Delgadillo says the reasons for continuing to keep his business at the Flea Market has to do with the love for the job, and the cohesion between the vendors and the eclectic community that comes to shop and enjoy weekends there. “We’re out here in the open air and there’s people from every background” says Delgadillo. The sheer number of different products and services for sale allow all types of people to come looking for anything, including Delgadillo’s fresh produce. “You can find nails, fruits, records and honey. You find it all here.” Part of this communal spirit is the price margins and low overhead costs, which Delgadillo says allows him to give the freshest products at reasonable prices to consumers, who in turn become repeat customers. “Our produce is a lot cheaper. Fresher. Whatever’s not in season here we get it from Mexico, Ecuador, Guatemala, all around the world. You go to Safeway, and you really cant find all that stuff there.” The ethnic foods that sell year-round at the massive Produce Row, which include Delgadillo’s stand, give this place an edge on other markets and big box stores. Cus-

tomers requesting specific ethnic fruits and vegetables over the years led to the increasing demand, and ultimately these foods became staples of the Flea Market’s large array of produce. Delgadillo gives an example of this effect, “here in the Hispanic community, mamey (A fruit from a tree native to Central America) is number one. Thats our number one seller.” He says that along with mamey guavas are also a highly popular ethnic fruit. Beyond the varied exotic fruits and vegetables all the favorite staples are located within Produce Row. Delgadillo’s Produce is located at the corner of 12th Street and Produce, stall # 420. Delgadillo and his families knowledge and commitment to great customer service will surely leave a positive impression with you at day’s end. They accepts major credit cards, debit cards, food stamps and EBT forms of payment. Delgadillo adds that they are at the Flea Market every Saturday and Sunday, rain or shine. If you’re curious to try something new, fresh and even chat with José Delgadillo, you know where to find him.

Last week it was 26 for me, with the last two getting onto 280 North by way of De Anza Boulevard. Something clicked when I saw them. They are part of a system that has brought wealth, innovation and poised our Bay Area as a mecca of technology and start-ups. These are the tools of commuters. They are sleek, with tinted windows and usually without any indication of company insignia. Yet there’s a downside.

lowing affluent tech workers to move into neighborhoods that in turn shot rent up. An analysis of these events, “Google Bus and Spatial Justice-A Call for Greater Social Responsibility in Urban Governance” by Rosanne de Koning of the University of Amsterdam states “the buses are luxury coach buses that feature on board WiFi, air conditioning, electrical outlets, and other amenities to make its riders comfortable, allowing them to continue their work during their commute while at the same time decreasing commuting time. In 2012, Google owned 73 of these $800,000 buses, and leased an additional 13 to transport some 4,500 employees.” Because of this most of the time the reference to a “Google Bus” can be towards any of these tech buses. More so, and getting to the point at which it becomes a

social problem, is as Koning states “the marginalization of public space has a deteriorating effect on urban space and creates unjust geographies,” and references these buses as “vehicles of gentrification.” Essentially, a greater understanding of the neighborhoods and these effects is needed to gauge how to handle gentrification and the dislocation of the original communities. Gentrification is not bad by all means. The part that’s bad is the influx of rent raises and congestion, a decimation of the original communities. Recently, while walking through the Mission District I saw drastic changes, a “start-up” type of community forging itself with the folks that have long resided in the culturally diverse and very ethnic area. Stickers that say “stop Airbnb” (a

lodging app/site) and generally negative talk about “techies” and the tech buses. I say, good or bad, local governments, citizens and companies must look towards both the community that has molded these neighborhoods and their human rights in regards to

housing, as well as the transplants who look to call these areas home. There has to be a happy medium. I offer you the reader to please write and give your opinion and viewpoints on the issue. arturo@el-observador.com.

WASHINGTON, DC La Agencia Federal Medioambiental (EPA) anunció el miercoles la eliminación de cláusulas de la Ley de Aire Limpio que permitían a contaminadores en 36 estados emitir enormes cantidades de sustancias tóxicas a comunidades aledañas durante reinicios, pausas y averías (conocidos como SSM en inglés) en sus instalaciones. Durante décadas, los SSM han sido criticados por grupos de salud pública y de

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

justicia medioambiental por ser peligrosos regalos a los contaminadores que han afectado a comunidades vulnerables, las cuales a menudo son hispanas. Algunas instalaciones, como plantas de combustión de carbón y refinerías petroleras, han emitido más contaminación durante periodos de SSM que durante sus horas normales de operación durante un año entero. Esto ha presentado una gran amenaza a la salud de personas que sufren de asma, y a los niños y los ancianos que se exponen

sin saber al salir de sus hogares.

afectadas y urgido a la EPA a eliminar estas fallas en la ley.

La EPA eliminará estas cláusulas exigiendo a 36 estados que revisen las leyes que eximen los periodos de SSM de la Ley de Aire Limpio y permiten a los contaminadores eludir responsabilidades por repetidas violaciones. La decisión de la EPA refleja años de arduo trabajo por parte de ciudadanos, grupos medioambientales y defensores legales de todo el país, los cuales han luchado para proteger a comunidades

Como respuesta, el director ejecutivo del Sierra Club, Michael Brune, emitió el siguiente comunicado:

MAY 29- JUNE 4, 2015

“Hoy aplaudimos a la administración Obama por lograr una significativa victoria para la justicia medioambiental actuando para proteger mejor a nuestras comunidades contra la peligrosa contaminación del aire. “Durante demasiados años, los barrios aledaños a las sucias refinerías petroleras, plantas de carbón y otras fuentes de contaminación han quedado casi desamparadas ante emisiones tóxicas, como dióxido de azufre y hollín. Con demasiada frecuencia, las comunidades que confrontan esta contaminación son hispanas. “Gracias a la decisión de la administración y a la lucha

de innumerables grupos y activistas, nuestras familias podrán tomarse un respiro”. El Sierra Club es la mayor y más influyente organización medioambiental de base en Estados Unidos y cuenta con 2.4 millones de miembros y seguidores en todo el país. Además de crear oportunidades para que personas de todas las edades, niveles y localizaciones tengan opor-

tunidad de disfrutar de la naturaleza, el Sierra Club se esfuerza en salvaguardar la salud de nuestras comunidades, proteger la vida silvestre, y preservar los restantes parajes naturales por medio de activismo de base, educación pública, cabildeo y en las cortes.

BPT While you’re frolicking through summer fun, are you thinking about your health? Looking good is most satisfying when you’re also feeling your best. It’s easy to look great and protect your health. You just need to choose the right accessories. Here are five must-have accessories that will help you look great while protecting your eyes, skin and body from sun damage this summer. * Sunglasses – The sun can damage more than skin; exposure to UV radiation over

many years can increase cataract risks, and possibly damage your retinas, according to the American Optometric Association. If you’re an eyeglass wearer, it can be difficult to find a fashionable, affordable option for protecting your eyes from the sun. Solar Shield Sunglasses and ClipOns fit easily over your everyday glasses, look great, and are more reasonably priced and convenient than expensive prescription sunglasses. The accessories are polarized to reduce blinding glare and block 100 percent of harmful UVA and UVB rays. While prescription sunglasses can be so costly you would buy only one pair at a time, Solar

Shield products are affordable enough to keep multiple pairs around – in the car, your gym bag, etc. Visit www.solarshield. com to learn more. * Smart, supportive footwear – Summer cries out for comfy flip flops and sassy sandals. But while you’re showing off

your pedicure or enjoying the feeling of fresh air on your toes, you also need to protect your feet from hot sand and the risk of sprains, strains, fractures and irritation that can come

from poor footwear choices. When choosing flip flops or sandals, look for styles made of high-quality soft leather to minimize rubbing and blisters. Shoe soles should bend at the ball of the foot, but you shouldn’t be able to completely twist the shoe. Flip flops with extra padding in the thong part that fits between your toes will be more comfortable, and a thicker sole will provide more support and protection for the soles of your feet. * A hat – Even if you don’t consider yourself a hat person, summer is a great time to be

exploring this time-honored accessory. Many styles, colors and materials are available and most will do a good job of protecting your head, face and shoulders from the sun. Keep in mind that styles with wider brims will shield more of your face and body, while lighter colors will do a better job of reflecting heat. With the right gear for summer, it’s possible to take care of your health – eyes to toes – and look great at the same time.

Washington, D.C. Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released this statement following the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit decision to maintain an injunction on the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and the expanded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program: “Today, two Fifth Circuit judges decided to continue to block the President’s Immigration Accountability Executive Actions and defer the dreams of hard-working immigrant families across America. Their decision represents a disappointing delay of a clear outcome. “The fact is, the President’s executive actions fall well within the clear precedent set by Presidents of both parties, including strong executive actions taken by President Ronald Reagan and President George H.W. Bush, for the last 50 years. “Now is the time to restore fairness to our immigration system and honor the best traditions of our country by passing comprehensive immigration reform.  Just days after we commemorated DAPA day, we must recommit ourselves to ensuring that all families have a chance to thrive.  Despite this disappointing setback, we remain confident in the bipartisan precedent set by 50 years of American Presidents.  President Obama’s executive actions will be upheld.”

BPT Go to the seafood counter or local restaurant and over 91 percent of the seafood is shipped from thousands of miles away. If you are looking for a source of safe, sustainable, high quality, local seafood, you’re probably having difficulty finding it. In the U.S., the aquaculture industry works closely with government agencies and academic institutions to help ensure that fish and shellfish farmed in the United States meet the highest standards for environmental practices, sustainability and food safety, according to Mike Freeze, president of the National Aquaculture Association. Aquaculture or fish farming is the production of marine and freshwater organisms under controlled conditions for all or part of the life cycle.

The farming of oysters, clams and mussels helps to maintain environmental quality. Algae can grow rapidly during the summer and cause a “bloom.” When the bloom dies off, a high volume of the oxygen in the water is used. Because shellfish feed on algae, they can help keep the ecosystem system in balance so that more oxygen is available for other organisms. In addition, because of the three-dimensional structure of their shells, they provide habitats and hiding places for other animals. Aquaculture has another important benefit - sustainability. Some species like sturgeon are facing extinction in the wild, but aquaculture is helping to ensure that future generations will still be able to enjoy both sturgeon and caviar. Another fish that is rapidly disappearing from its natural habitat is Atlantic salmon, but aquaculture is making it plentiful on menus and at seafood counters.

Some fish, like catfish and tilapia, can be raised in ponds. This is probably the earliest form of aquaculture and was practiced in China and Egypt about 3,000 years ago. Fish like trout need moving freshwater and are raised in raceways. In raceways, the water is diverted from a natural source, flows through the system and is then returned to the source.

Fish produced in the United States are regulated from breeding to harvest and then through the processing and distribution steps. Fish farmers must follow a strict set of federal, state and, in some cases, local regulations. Those regulations prohibit the use of added hormones and antibiotics to enhance growth. Only a few drugs have been approved and must be used under the direction of a licensed veterinarian.

Aquaculture is one of the most efficient ways to raise animal protein and shows great promise as a way to feed a growing and hungry world without compromising environmental quality. In 1979, Jacques Cousteau, an advocate for the marine environment, said, “We must plant the sea and herd its animals using the sea as farmers instead of hunters. That is what civilization is all about - farming replacing hunting.”

Many environmental organizations place U.S. farm-raised fish and shellfish on their “Best Seafood Choices” lists. U.S. farm-raised fish and shellfish are good choices for the environment and, because prices and supply are stable, they can provide a great-tasting, healthy, sustainable option for dinner.

“Entourage”, la esperada versión cinematográfica de la exitosa y premiada serie de HBO, reúne al célebre elenco original de la serie, liderado por Kevin Connolly, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara y Jeremy Piven. ¿Alguna vez viajaste por Sunset Boulevard en una limusina de lujo y luego pisaste la alfombra roja en un estreno cinematográfico lleno de estrellas? ¿Pasaste por una fiesta espontánea en la playa en Malibú, donde el sol brilla siempre y fluyen los cócteles? ¿Conseguiste la mejor mesa en el restaurante más popular en la ciudad, sin necesitar reservación? Y mientras tanto, vayas donde vayas, actrices hermosas pasan junto a ti.

Vivir el sueño de Hollywood es la fantasía de todos, pero Vince, Eric, Drama, Turtle y Ari Gold lo hacen de verdad, y lo hacen parecer muy fácil. Vaya, los chicos de “Entourage” saben cómo hacerlo y hacerlo bien, cómo soñar en grande, y vivir más grande aún. Para llevar a los chicos y su estilo de vida envidiable de acceso y excesos a la pantalla grande, el autor/director/productor Doug Ellin, que creó la exitosa serie de HBO en la cual se basa la película, sabía que el largometraje “Entourage” tenía que ser aún más grande; una tarea nada fácil, considerando todo el terreno que cubrieron antes. “Aunque la serie fue una serie importante con muchas locaciones, quería llevar la película a

otro nivel, así que es ‘Entourage’ en esteroides, con yates, casas y aviones glamorosos, y los desafíos para todos son mayores que nunca”. Desde los primeros segundos del primer episodio en 2004, los espectadores siguieron al chofer/ mensajero Turtle cuando salía de su Hummer amarillo y caminaba distraídamente a través de una cantidad de mujeres atractivas de Hollywood a un restaurante de moda en Melrose Avenue, donde se encontraba con sus amigos de Queens, Nueva York: el líder de facto del cuarteto, la prometedora estrella de cine Vincent Chase; el ex repartidor

de pizza convertido en representante de talento, Eric Murphy; y el medio hermano de Vince, el actor desempleado de baja categoría Johnny “Drama” Chase. La misión momentánea de Turtle: que Vince autografíe un póster de su primera película para mantener contento a su vendedor local. Corte a 2015, y, con un cielo azul completamente despejado, “Entourage” empieza con el trío familiar del representante convertido en productor de cine Eric, el chofer convertido en magnate de tequila Turtle, y Drama, el actor que todavía trabaja a veces. Pero esta vez navegan el mar

abierto en un una lancha rápida, y su destino es un yate de lujo enorme frente a la costa de Ibiza, donde Vince, el actor prometedor convertido en mega estrella, “está haciendo el duelo” del deceso de su matrimonio de cinco días, rodeado por casi 200 de sus conocidos más cercanos... principalmente de la variedad femenina con poca ropa. Pero no sería una fiesta sin sus amigos, y claramente la fiesta ha regresado.

“Entourage“ será estrenada el 5 de junio de 2015.

In the 12th minute, Quakes midfielder Shea Salinas played a give-and-go with Matias Perez Garcia inside Orlando City’s penalty area and ripped a shot towards net, but his attempt was corralled by keeper Tally Hall. Salinas created another scoring opportunity for himself in the 22nd minute. After receiving a through ball from forward Adam Jahn, Salinas stormed up the left side of the pitch and had a one-on-one with the keeper, but the narrow shooting angle proved too difficult as his left-footed

Pese a estos resultados, desde el 2011 los queretanos no acariciaban el sueĂąo de jugar una final en el MĂĄximo Circuito, en esa ocasiĂłn los Tigres les arrebataron las esperanzas en la semifinal. De esta firma, los dirigidos por VĂ­ctor Manuel Vucetich han llegado a la final del Clausura 2015 despuĂŠs de dejar en el camino a los Tuzos del Pachuca con un marcador global de 2-2, siendo el boleto para la final su posiciĂłn en la tabla general en la cual superaron a los Tuzos por puntaje.

Cabe mencionar que Vucetich llega por sĂŠptima vez a una final de Liga Mexicana de Primera DivisiĂłn y la Ăşnica que perdiĂł fue contra Santos Laguna, los rivales a vencer en este 2015.

Y es precisamente el equipo lagunero el cual busca su quinto tĂ­tulo en Liga MX, despuĂŠs de hacerlo en los torneos Invierno 96, Verano 2001, Clausura 2008 y Clausura 2012 Santos Laguna, que es actualmente el campeĂłn de Copa MX, llegĂł hasta este punto tras golear 3-0 en el partido de vuelta a las Chivas del Gua-

Con goles por parte de Djaniny al minuto 38, de Izquierdoz al 55 y de NĂŠstor CalderĂłn al 67, el equipo dirigido por Pedro Caixinha se impuso en Guadalajara y obtuvo el pase que puede darle su quinta gloria. Como dato adicional, Santos y QuerĂŠtaro sĂłlo se han enfrentado en una ocasiĂłn en Liguilla.

shot went into the side netting. In the 51st minute, Orlando City went down when midfielder Brek Shea was sent off with a straight red after mistiming his tackle on Quakes midfielder Sanna Nyassi. Orlando City SC took a 1-0 lead in the 64th minute. After a penalty was called, Orlando City midfielder Kaka converted from the spot to give the away side the advantage. San Jose drew level just four minutes later when defender Jordan Stewart was taken down in the box. Quakes forward Chris Wondolowski stepped up to take it and calmly slotted the penalty

into the bottom-left corner of the net, marking his 100th career goal in MLS. He is just the ninth player to ever reach the century mark in league history. He has now scored in four of the team’s last five matches. The two teams continued to battle for the remainder of the match, but neither was able to find the deciding goal. San Jose returns to action on Saturday, May 30, when they travel north of the border to take on Toronto FC. The match will be broadcast live on Comcast SportsNet California, in English on 1590 KLIV and in Spanish on 1370 KZSF, beginning at 2 p.m. PT.
