This past May 28, 2015, my 18 year old grand-daughter graduated from high school and was admitted to an established college. As her grandfather who was proud and congratulated her, I provided the following financial management advice which is useful to all youth who are transitioning from being a “TEENAGER” to becoming a ‘responsible young adult’. PREPARE YOUR PERSONAL BUSINESS PLAN in detail for the next 12 months. Then project it into the next four years. You will live away from home so arrange for your essential needs: housing, meals, transportation, books, fees, tuition, etc. This enables you to manage a ‘personal business’ expenditures in excess of $20,000 per year. This detailed information will assist you in determining required cash flow. The devil is in the details. Knowing what is necessary and having it already in hand reduces the stress and uncertainty you do not need to experience as a student. Being the best student possible is now your job until you earn that professional degree which will define your future professional destiny. Learn what you enjoy doing because ability and enjoyment go together. If you love your work, it becomes a vocation. Know that your honesty, integrity, and core values will always serve you well. Being dependable, responsible are part of your identity along with your language skills and social values. LEARN TO MANAGE & ADMINISTRATE MON-

a) Understand that your personal money is your personal license (like your driver’s license is a permit to drive) to do three things: Perform, Produce and Consume. These are the three major ways money is used. Practice paying for essentials first, then discretionary things follow. b) Learn, understand, and use the basic accounting equation, which is the following: YOUR ASSETS MINUS YOUR DEBTS EQUALS YOUR NET WORTH (ASSETS) - (LIABILITIES) = NET WORTH (your equity) Many folks use this relationship when they think about their home mortgage: (Mortgage amount owed) – (payments made) = equity (ownership share in that home/property) c) DO PLAN TO VISIT THE FINANCIAL AID OFFICE.....because as a college student, living away from home, you need to know, in advance, how much ‘it costs’, how you may get the money (funds) needed’, and what is the ‘cash flow’ schedule of monthly payments (due dates). A four year plan is best; And if you need to discuss this with someone, ask a financial aid official who has experience and suggestions. It is essential to know in advance what amounts of money you may need. BECAUSE....knowing in advance permits you to learn where that money may be

available: Often college financial aid programs have special funds which can be awarded to you as a ‘grant’. Scholarships, grants-in-aid, gifts, wage earnings (you may need to get a part time job), etc. Up to now, you have depended upon your mother & father who paid for ‘the essentials’ …..food, housing, clothing, health care, transportation, & some recreation, etc. Being and becoming an independent and responsible young adult means assuming accountability for all your expenses. But understand that by getting a professional degree, you are investing in your development as a capable knowledge worker having ability and skills needed in some community which will help you pay off your college loans. The Placement Office has that information. No one can take your knowledge and skill base & experience away from you.....ever...and success if finding the community that needs your interest, knowledge and skill set. Go to the local library’s business section to learn the average salary/wage level for the profession you want to practice. That will give you an idea of your value to a potential employee. Without knowing this information you may inadvertently accept a position at too low a wage level. Knowing in advance what you may need will enable you to communicate to others what they may do to help you. And when you do that, they may tell you what they can reasonably do and what they cannot provide to you. And understand that someone (a taxpayer) is paying for those education and health care entitlements’. You may be insured on your parents health insurance until age 26 per the recent Affordable Care Act 2010 (Obama Care). Good fortune is the result of being prepared when opportunity arrives: Good Luck.

“Esta exposición será un estudio visual del compromiso de Huerta con el movimiento pacífico y multicultural de los trabajadores del campo; sus motivaciones y métodos de organización”, dijo Kim Sajet, directora del museo destacando que para la Galería es un orgullo reconocer su invaluable contribución a la historia de esta nación.

Luisa Fernanda Montero LA RED HISPANA Es un personaje conocido – y no por ello poco entrañableen corredores y salones de Washington; sin embargo son características en ella la sencillez y la familiaridad. Su actitud serena pero firme puede de hecho pasar inadvertida si uno no sabe, que Dolores Huerta es nada más y nada menos Dolores Huerta. Y es que son pocos los que pueden legar tanta grandeza en su propio nombre sin agregarle ornamentos y títulos y los que lo logran lo logran por que tienen una fuerza en el corazón y un sentido de la justicia que los hace casi invencibles. ¡Qué bueno que una mujer del peso de Dolores Huerta sea homenajeada en vida! Desde el espacio de quienes pretendemos el bienestar, el éxito y la dignificación de los inmigrantes en Estados Unidos tenemos que decirlo en voz alta y destacarlo – no como un favor – que no lo es, si no como un acierto. Porque es importante que las nuevas generaciones sepan a quienes les deben lo que tienen y lo valoren. Porque sin el esfuerzo de mujeres como Huerta o el de hombres como César Chávez muchos derechos no estarían descontados. Dolores Huerta está ligada a la historia del movimiento moderno de los trabajadores agrícolas en Estados Unidos, es una líder latina que ha trabajado y levantado la voz en su nombre y que no ha dejado de hacer presencia cuando es necesaria para defender a los miles de inmigrantes que habitan tierras estadounidenses. En el comunicado en el que anuncia el homenaje el Smithsonian informa que “La Galería Nacional de Retratos destacará su importante papel en el movimiento de los trabajadores agrícolas de la década de 1960 y 1970 en la

exposición “One Life: Dolores Huerta” que estará abierta del 3 de julio al 15 de mayo de 2016”, y a la que hay que ir. Esta exposición en la serie One Life, es la primera dedicada a una figura latina y la destacará como cofundadora, conjuntamente con César Chávez, del sindicato de Trabajadores del Campo Unidos -UFW por sus siglas en inglésy su participación en negociaciones de contratos con la industria agrícola de Estados Unidos. Huerta jugó un papel decisivo en la consecución de mayores protecciones legales y un mejor nivel de vida para los trabajadores agrícolas. Y es que la apertura de esta exposición coincide con la conmemoración del aniversario 50 de la huelga de uvas de Delano llevada a cabo por el movimiento de trabajadores del campo en septiembre de 1965.

“La Pasionaria”, como fue llamada, pudo con todo en un tiempo de hombres en el que   las mujeres   de descendencia mexicana estaban relegadas a   sus familias e impulsó   un nuevo modelo de liderazgo femenino mientras criaba a sus 11 hijos –una hazaña desde donde se mire-. Este no es el primer reconocimiento que recibe la activista hispana, quien se convierte en la  segunda persona en ser homenajeada en vida en la serie One Life , en 1998, el presidente Bill Clinton la condecoró con el Premio Eleanor Roosevelt de los Derechos Humanos y en el 2012, el presidente Barack Obama le concedió la Medalla Presidencial de la Libertad. Es importante saberlo. Es importante que nuestros jóvenes lo sepan, lo entiendan y lo valores, porque necesitamos muchas Dolores Huerta.

STATEPOINT Los programas para después del horario escolar atienden a 3.8 millones de niños hispanos en todo el país. Aunque la mayoría de los padres informan que están satisfechos con la comida sana y la diversidad de actividades físicas que ofrece el programa de sus hijos, aún hay una enorme necesidad no cubierta de tales programas, especialmente entre las familias hispanas. Los padres de 5.5 millones de niños hispanos Y los padres de los padres de 19.4 millones de niños en general dicen que inscribirían a sus hijos en un programa para después del horario escolar si lo hubiera disponible, según “Kids on the Move: Afterschool Programs Promoting Healthy Eating and Physical Activity”, un informe especial basado en las respuestas reunidas para America After 3PM. “Los programas para después del horario escolar son una herramienta probada, pero en ocasiones no debidamente valorada, en el esfuerzo por evitar la obe-

Estos nuevos datos dejan claro que también hacen mucho por ayudar a mantener a los niños sanos, ahora y hacia el futuro”. El nuevo estudio, que fue financiado por la Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, determina que muchos padres no están conscientes de los estándares de alimentación saludable y actividad física (Healthy Eating and Physical Activity, HEPA) que tienen los programas para después del horario escolar, que recomiendan al menos 30 minutos de tiempo del programa dedicados a la actividad física en la mañana o después de la escuela. El informe recomienda aumentar los esfuerzos a fin de garan-

Según el informe:

• Más de ocho de cada 10 padres hispanos y afroamericanos están de acuerdo en que los programas para después del horario escolar deben ayudar a los niños a estar físicamente activos.

• La mayoría de los padres están de acuerdo en que los programas para después del horario escolar deben proporcionar opciones de comida y bebidas sanas para los niños. • La mayoría de los padres dicen que proporcionar comida sana era un factor importante al seleccionar un programa para después del horario escolar. Los padres blancos y afroamericanos fueron más propensos que los padres hispanos a decir que el programa para después del

después del horario escolar son una parte esencial del tejido de nuestras comunidades, ofreciendo una vasta gama de servicios que necesitan los niños y las familias”. Los resultados nacionales y por estados de aquel informe y de este informe especial están disponibles en www. af terschoolalliance.org/ AA3PM/. Ante un aumento de participación en los programas para después del horario escolar de 6.5 millones a 10.2 millones de niños a lo largo de la última década, es fundamental el apoyo para estos programas por parte del gobierno a todos los niveles, de las organizaciones filantrópicas, las empresas y otros, dicen los expertos.

STATEPOINT Good credit is a key ingredient in succeeding financially; yet building a strong foundation takes time. If you are new to credit or are working to improve it, there are many steps you can take to put you on a path to stronger credit. Here are three essential steps that help you get started: • Check your credit report: Experts recommend checking your credit report at least once a year. Your credit report contains details of your credit history, including balances, credit limit and payment status. Lenders, apartment managers and some employers may check your credit report to see how responsible you are with money. When you check your report, make sure it contains current and accurate information. If you find errors, correct them as soon as possible because they may negatively impact your credit score and even indicate possible identity theft. You can request a free copy of your

credit report from each of three major credit reporting agencies -- Equifax, Experian and TransUnion -- once each year at www.AnnualCreditReport.com or call toll-free 1-877-322-8228. • Make sure you’re paying your bills on time: Life happens and you may find yourself forgetting to pay a bill on time. Because your payment history is one of the biggest factors in your credit score, it’s important that you stay organized and keep track of all your bills. This applies to more than just credit card bills, but also when it comes to rent, utilities and cell phone payments. Using free online tools, often available through your financial institution’s online banking, can help your develop a budget and create an automatic bill payment schedule. Many financial institutions also allow you to change your payment due dates for one that is convenient for you. If it helps, you can organize all your payments to be due on the same day of the month. • Make a budget and stick to it: One of the best ways

to keep up with your bills is to closely monitor your spending. Creating a budget can help you decide when to use credit and when to hold off on a purchase. Keeping a budget is also helpful because lenders look at the amount of debt a consumer has compared to their income. As an important rule of thumb, keep debt at no more than 35 percent of your income or lower. This will tell lenders that your debt is at a manageable level relative to your income, and you are likely to have money left over for saving or spending after you pay your bills. In addition to the steps listed above, there are many free resources available that can help you improve and manage your credit. Wells Fargo recently launched Path to Good Credit, a new website that offers videos, tips, quizzes and infographics that illustrate how good credit can help consumers succeed financially. For more information, visit www.wellsfargo.com/buildcredit.Take steps now to improve your credit for a solid financial future.

We all know they’re coming . . . the dog days of summer. As parents, we love having the kiddos home and the absence of the daily grind of the bus, lunchmaking and homework, but with every upside, there is a downside. And for kids in the summer, it’s boredom! For this reason, parents spend a good amount of time searching and registering their kids for activities to keep them engaged and out of trouble. With so many options available, where do you start? Where do you find activities that are of interest to your kids, while also being kind to your wallet? A good place to start is online. There are some great parent resources available that provide parents the opportunity to search different activities -- all relevant to your child. For instance, ACTIVEkids.com is an easy-to-use website for parents to discover and register kids for activities, classes and camps. ACTIVEkids enables parents to find a broad spectrum of activities from art seminars to dance classes to local summer camps -- search by gender, age and interests to find activities that are the most relevant to parent and child. It has a database of more than 120,000 activities nationwide and serves kids ages four to 18.

Another option is the local YMCA. If you’re not familiar with the YMCA in your area, we suggest you check it out. It’s a great family organization for kids and adults of all ages. Their programs focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Many local locations offer health and fitness programs that help children (and adults) to increase energy, decrease stress, prevent illness, maintain a healthy lifestyle and just enjoy quality time with family and friends. The Y offers a number of different summer programs that promote positive self-esteem, good decision making and self-help and care. There are likely to be one or two great options for your child. The recreation department in your town is another great place to look for activities -- and they are usually very affordable. Most towns offer programs from tennis and swim lessons to painting and music classes. The programs are usually run by local experts and are located right in town. Plus, if you coordinate with some friends, you might be able to catch a morning break that can be enjoyed and filled with some “you” time. Wherever you go to find fun, engaging activities for your kids, just make sure you remember to carve out some simple, relaxing family time, too. The summers fly by much faster than the school year.

HEALTH

NAPS Known as “trauma season” among public health and medical professionals, summer is a time when serious injuries and unintentional deaths increase dramatically among children. Statistics show that 40 percent of all injury-related emergency room visits happen between the months of May and August. Fortunately, many of these injuries can be prevented with a few simple precautions. “Sustaining a serious injury can be a life-altering event for a child,” said Dale Stauss, chairman of the Board of Directors for Shriners Hospitals for Children®. “We see patients every day with injuries caused by accidents, and we are committed to raising awareness about how to stay safe this summer.” As experts in the treatment of pediatric orthopaedic conditions, spinal cord injuries and burns, Shriners Hospitals for Children provides critical, surgical and rehabilitative care to children, regardless of the families’ ability to pay. Shriners Hospitals encourages families to take these simple precautions to enjoy a safe, injury-free summer.

Playground 101 •Choose playgrounds that are appropriate for their age and offer shock-absorbing surfaces. •Teach children that pushing and shoving can result in accidents and injuries. •Remind kids to use the slide one at a time and to wait until it’s completely clear before taking their turn. Teach them to always face forward with their legs straight in front of them and to never slide down headfirst. •Remind children to swing sitting down. Encourage them to wait until the swing stops before getting off and to be careful when walking in front of moving swings. Make A Safe Splash •Teach children to never swim alone or go near water without an adult present. •Give children your undivided attention when they are swimming or are near any body of water. •Always jump in feet first to check the depth before diving into any body of water. •Never dive in the shallow end of the pool or into aboveground pools. Fun On The Water •Always have children wear a U.S. Coast Guard– approved, properly fitted life jacket while on a boat, around an open body of water or when participating in water sports.

•Educate yourself. According to the Coast Guard, 86 percent of boating accident deaths involve boaters who have not completed a safety course. •Always check water conditions and forecasts before going out on the water. Mowing Matters •Teach children to never play on or around a lawn mower, even when it is not in use. They should never be permitted to walk beside, in front of or behind a moving mower. •Children under 6 years of age should be kept inside the home while you are mowing. •Children should be at least 12 years of age before operating a push lawn mower and at least 16 years of age before operating a riding lawn mower. Fire Safety Simplified •Teach kids to never play with matches, gasoline, lighter fluid or lighters. Make a habit of placing these items up and away from young children. •Do not leave children unattended near grills, campfires, fire pits or bonfires. Always have a bucket of water or fire extinguisher nearby. •Take your child to a doctor or hospital immediately if he or she is injured in a fire or by fireworks. Should an injury occur,

San Jose CALIFORNIA An educational boat tour of the Alviso Slough organized by the District 3 Office of BOS President & Supervisor Dave Cortese, a group of George Mayne Elementary School (SCUSD) students were the first to benefit from this educational program requiring the collaboration and cooperation of several agencies. These students named five harbor seals Juanita, Juan, Oreo, Gary and Cecelia, just to name a few of the many resident harbor seals...whether they like it or not. This new educational Alviso Slough boat tour was implemented this past Friday, May 29, 2015 with the involvement of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (Federal), County’s Board of Supervisors, Office of the Sheriff, Parks & Recreation Department, Santa Clara Union School District, and County Office of Education. The seals were part of the students’ visual learning experiences as they took an 8-mile boat trip past the marshes along both sides of the Alviso Slough all the way out to where Coyote Creek meets the open waters of San Francisco Bay. The boats were navigated out there and back by Sheriff ’s Deputies, The passengers also saw herons, terns and many other resident and migratory birds. The marshes on either side of the Alviso Slough contains much biodiversity and biological activity…..including fish, marsh mice, along with many plants which tolerate brackish waters, etc. A sensitive nose can detect ‘marsh gas’ (methane) which is the product of fermentation that happens in marshes. There is much biological diversity

here not easily evident to the uninformed human eye or olfactory senses. Alviso’s George Mayne Elementary School’s students kicked off this new program organized by the Office of Supervisor Dave Cortese to showcase the Alviso Marina County Park, which provides access to this Alviso Slough water way and its several ecosystems which reach the confluence of the Coyote Creek/San Francisco Bay. This program also features a land tour guided by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service staff, a federal agency. “These boat tours are floating classrooms for anyone, adult or youthful students, who are eager to learn about the unique ecosystems which exist right here,” said Cortese. “What better way to teach all of us about nature, the environment and our changing climate which all have unique equilibriums (relationships) to each other.” The students also got to explore the trails in the park with staff from the federal U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Agency. Creating this pilot tourism program which begins and ends at the Alviso Marina County Park boat ramps was a promise Board President Dave Cortese made during his January 2015 State of the County event. These boat tours are an outcome of cooperation, collaboration, and communication by staff of several jurisdictions supported by our tax dollars. “The Alviso Marina and our Bay front may become the crown jewel of the County of Santa Clara’s parks system,” Cortese said. “Let’s show Silicon Valley that there really is a ‘Bay’ in the South Bay Area. These informative tours may become an attractive tourism

mainstay of the Alviso Marina County Park.” After patiently listening to these comments by Cortese to the audience present containing Sheriff Laurie Smith, County Executive Jeff Smith, National Wildlife Refuge Complex Manager Anne Morhill and County Parks Deputy Director Janet Hawks, the fifth-graders helped Cortese cut the ribbon stretched across the entrance to the boat ramps. During Cortese’s time on the Board, the waterway has become navigable with the addition of boat launch ramps and two floating docks. In 2013, it was designated as the first site on the San Francisco Bay Area Water Trail and is used by hundreds of boaters and kayakers who navigate through the marshes to the open waters of the (South San Francisco) Bay. Historically, The City of Alviso was incorporated into San Jose in 1968. It was the major commercial shipping point to the entire world from the entire County of Santa Clara...transporting hides, redwood lumber and quicksilver (mercury) from the new Almaden mines (located in South San Jose. Then railroads took over after the Civl War (1865) and the completion of the transcontinental railroad authorized by President Abraham Lincoln. The former City of Alviso was also a regular stop for steamboats and stagecoaches and this town’s bustlng business center having residences, hotels, stores and taverns (cantinas).

According to WearOrange.org, “the color orange symbolizes the value of human life. Hunters wear orange to alert other hunters that they’re there – as a way to take care of their own life and the lives of others…”

Sheriff Laurie Smith and Supervisor Cindy Chavez Wear Orange Santa Clara County Gun Buy Back to be held on June 6 to Reduce Gun Violence At a press conference on Tuesday, June 2nd, Supervisor Cindy Chavez and Sheriff Laurie Smith were joined by Dr. Alan Schroeder on the first National Gun Violence

Awareness Day. This press conference came in advance of the Santa Clara County Gun Buy Back event which is on June 6 from 8 am to 12 pm at Reid-Hillview Airport, 2500 Cunningham Ave, in San José. Both the press conference and Gun Buy Back are efforts to spread awareness about and reduce the amount of gun violence lo-

On Saturday, June 6th, Supervisor Chavez and Sheriff Smith will co-host the 2015 Santa Clara County Gun Buy Back event at Reid-Hillview Airport, 2500 Cunningham Ave, San José. Sheriff’s staff be on-hand and available to collect handguns, rifles, and assault weapons transported in the trunk of a car safely and anonymously. Up to $200 will be distributed for assault weapons.

SACRAMENTO The Senate on Monday unanimously approved SB 674, by a bipartisan vote of 35-0, a public-safety measure by President pro Tempore Kevin de León that will better shelter immigrants who are victims of crime from deportation if they have been helpful to law enforcement. “We are all at risk when predators go free because victims of crime believe that cooperating with law enforcement will lead to their deportation,” said Pro Tem de León. Jointly authored by Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins, SB 674 requires local and state law enforcement agencies to sign certifications for

qualified immigrant victims when they have been helpful to the investigation of a crime like sexual assault and domestic violence. These certifications are prerequisites to an application for a Victim of Crime “U-Visa.” U-Visas are issued by the federal government and prevent deportation of victims of specific crimes who have been helpful to the investigation or prosecution. “The problem is some law enforcement officials deny certification based on their political views on immigration and not the criteria established by the U-Visa process,” said Senator de León. “My bill will put an end to the politics of repression, fear and subjectivity. If a crime victim has been helpful, law enforcement must

protect and certify an immigrant victim of crime. ” Nubia Gutierrez, an immigrant and victim of domestic violence explained why SB 674 is needed: “I reported my circumstances to the police to escape the violence. Even though I participated in the investigation in a way that made me eligible for the Uvisa, the Sheriff of San Joaquin denied me the certification without an explanation. I wanted that protection, not just for me, but more for my children. SB 674 is a part of the Immigrants Shape California legislative package, a set of Assembly and Senate bills to ensure “liberty and justice” for California’s undocumented residents. The measure now moves onto the Assembly.

Suzanne Potter California New Service SACRAMENTO, CA Un reporte reciente de la organizacion no lucrativa Centro de Investigacion y Accion Alimentaria (Food Research and Action Center) dice que el 80 por ciento de los ninos de bajos ingresos, elegibles en California, no recibe comidas de verano gratis. Casi uno de cada cinco ninos con bajos ingresos en California recibe comidas gratis durante el verano, un mejor porcentaje que el uno de cada seis, correspondiente al nivel nacional. Asi lo muestra un reporte reciente

de la organizacion sin fines de lucro Centro de Investigacion y Accion Alimentaria (FRAC, por sus siglas en ingles), donde se revela que el 80 por ciento de los estudiantes que recibe regularmente comidas gratis o con descuento durante el ano escolar, se estan perdiendo las ofertas de verano. Patrice Chamberlain, de la Coalicion para las Comidas Estivales de California (California Summer Meal Coalition), en el Instituto para el Gobierno Local (Institute for Local Government), dice que es un problema de acceso. “Hay una real necesidad de mas conciencia y de mas

apoyo del distrito escolar y los lideres de la comunidad, para ayudar a asegurar que estos lugares esten abiertos y que las familias lo sepan.”

Los programas de nutricion infantil estan programados para ser reautorizados por el Congreso en el otono. El Centro de Investigacion y Accion Alimentaria (FRAC) presiona para expandir la cantidad de comunidades elegibles para recibir asistencia alimentaria, y cambiar las reglas para permitir que en los locales se sirvan tres comidas al dia, en vez de dos.

Chamberlain comenta que eso se debe en parte a que hay mas comunidades involucradas, y en parte a que la sequia ha arrastrado a la pobreza a mas familias de granjeros. “Hay un verdadero impacto humano por la sequia. Los padres estan perdiendo de plano su trabajo, o tra-

EARTHTALK Dear EarthTalk: Summer is near and I am planning a big road trip. Do you have any tips for boosting my car’s fuel efficiency on long, hot drives? Esther McCoy, Burlington, VT Ah, the summer road trip, that classic American experience. But long drives through steamy weather can burn through a lot of gas and cause untold wear and tear on your car’s engine and systems while putting you at risk for overheating. Doubling down on tactics to help your car run better will not only improve fuel efficiency, but could also help you avoid spending a large chunk of your vacation time in the breakdown lane waiting for a tow. According to the American Automobile Association (AAA), there are lots

of ways to conserve fuel on hot weather road trips that also will help prolong the life of your car. “In summer, drive during cooler parts of the day,” reports the group. “Cooler, denser air can boost power and mileage.” While it may seem counterintuitive, using your car’s air conditioning is actually a smart idea in hot weather. “Today’s air conditioners create less drag on the engine than driving with the windows open,” says AAA. Meanwhile, if you have a hybrid, pre-cool it before you get in so it can devote more electricity to driving when you are out on the road. But don’t warm-up (or pre-cool) a conventional car, as the extra idling doesn’t do the car any good and just wastes fuel and creates extra heat. Another key tip for hot weather driving is to park in the shade when you can.

might want to change from 5W-30 to 10W-30, 10W-40 or 20W-30 for hot weather driving,” reports AA1car.com. “Synthetic motor oils are even better for high temperature protection.”

The Green Car Reports website suggests utilizing cruise control and overdrive features on cars that offer them on long summer roads trips; these features help normalize the energy demands of the engine which in turn helps conserve fuel.

According to AA1car.com, a leading online information resource on auto repair and maintenance, placing a sunshade under the windshield and cracking the windows when parked can help keep the interior cool between drives. This can also “lighten the cooling load on the air

Of course, some fuel saving tips apply any time of year. For instance, jackrabbit starts are a big no-no; drivers should always try to accelerate gradually. Taking your foot off the gas as early as possible when approaching a red light is another way to save gas. Keeping filters clean, maintaining recommended tire pressure and

driving at the speed limit are additional ways to conserve fuel, reduce emissions and treat your ride nicely. Of course, summertime road trips can also be hard on drivers and passengers, so pack plenty of sunscreen — especially if you plan to have the windows open (or top down)—and bring along a cooler with healthy drinks so everyone can stay hydrated.

A San Francisco-based environmental law firm is suing the federal government to stop a deep-sea mining project in the waters between Hawaii and Mexico. The Center for Biological Diversity is challenging the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s decision to issue permits to a subsidiary of Lockheed Martin.

“It’s a pristine environment and until the mining companies and the government can show they can mine without causing significant environmental impacts, we shouldn’t be giving mining companies carte blanche to go ahead and despoil the ecosystem,” says Jeffers.

Plaintiff’s attorney Emily Jeffers says the permits would allow the company to explore the deep seabed before completing the environmental impact studies required by federal law.

There are no deep-sea mining operations anywhere in

the world, yet, but more than a dozen have been permitted for exploration by the International Seabed Authority. Rare earth minerals like zinc, copper, nickel, cobalt and manganese are used in consumer electronics and this is driving the push toward deep-sea mining. Lockheed says the venture is strategically important for western countries because China has a near monopoly on the valuable minerals. Jeffers says the giant cutting machines used in deepsea mining could smother

bottom dwellers, interrupt communication between sea turtles, and damage habitat for whales and sharks. She wants the U.S. to put environmental concerns first. “It’s very important we do these environmental analyses before we issue the permits because once mining companies are allowed to make investments in deep-sea mining it’s much harder to build in environmental safeguards post-hoc,” Jeffers says. The court is expected to issue a ruling in about a year.

Arturo Hilario El Observador Musician by trade, actress Hayley Kiyoko stars as Maggie, best friend to lead character Quinne Brenner (Stefanie Scott) in Insidious: Chapter 3, a prequel to the horror franchise which began in 2011. Kiyoko shares some of her insight of the horror-house ride that is Insidious, as well as her own pursuits. I’m a musician first, I started doing acting in commercials that involved music, I was in my first movie at age 17, and then that kind of just sparked this excitement of being an actor. I never really thought I’d be an actress,” she says. “Its been very humbling and exciting experience and this is my first big screen film so its really cool.” Her love of music began when she started playing drums at age five, “I fell in love with percussion and rhythm,” says Kiyoko.

Her love for music extends to song-writing as well, with a new EP released in February. As for her gig in Insidious: Chapter 3, Kiyoko says its quite the scare fest. “(Maggie) is her (Quinne’s) stability within the craziness that goes on in the film. Its an origin story so you see Lin Shaye’s (Elise Rainier) character back to the beginning before the first and second chapters. If you haven’t seen the first two movies you’ll be fine going in cold turkey. If you’re a huge Insidious fan you’ll still love it.” Kiyoko says that simply put, moviegoers should check out Insidious: Chapter 3 because “its terrifying, and the story is really great. There’s lots of surprises and its definitely an experience.” Insidious: Chapter 3 is now playing in a theater near you. Follow Hayley at hayleykiyokoofficial.com.

Mario Jiménez Castillo EL OBSERVADOR Las chacras son descritas como puntos focales presentes en el cuerpo físico cuya función es recibir, procesar y transmitir energía y diseminarla en todo el organismo. Es sumamente importante conocer la ubicación de los puntos focales de energía, ya que representan la raíz y la base de un adecuado balance orgánico y espiritual. La palabra chacra proviene del sánscrito, y significa “rueda vital”.

STATEPOINT While there are many differences between the major world religions, there are just as many similarities. Fostering a conversation about religion and incorporating spirituality into your life can benefit you and your family, believe experts. “Finding common ground in the various religious scriptures, history and spiritual practices can help us reach peaceful solutions to social issues,” says author Star Chang, whose new book, “Coming Home: A Spiritual and Religious Dialogue,” explores diverse religious teachings. Chang is offering spiritual practices to incorporate into your everyday life, regardless of your faith. • The goals of the major world religions are similar; however the ways of achieving them can differ. For example, many religions practice “love” to achieve their goals. Everything you do, do it with love.

Aunque el cuerpo humano presenta centenares de chacras o puntos focales, únicamente siete son las chacras reconocidas como los más trascendentes.

A la chacra uno se le asocia al color rojo, a la chacra dos el color naranja, a la chacra tres el amarillo, a la chacra cuatro el verde, a la chacra cinco el azul, a la chacra seis el azul añil, y a la séptima chacra se le asocia al color violeta.

La chacra uno se proyecta en los órganos genitales. La chacra dos en el área del bazo. La chacra tres en el plexo solar. La chacra cuatro en el corazón. La quinta chacra se encuentra en la glándula endocrina. La sexta chacra en el tercer ojo. Y la séptima chacra le pertenece al espíritu.

A la terapia del color también se le conoce como baños de luz, y consiste básicamente en crear escenas llenas de color en la mente. Por ejemplo, si tiene alguna molestia en el sistema digestivo y precisa de una pronta recuperación, lo que debe hacer es relajarse, cerrar

• While faith is difficult to prove with the advancements of modern science, it is a trust in something greater. Have faith in what you’re doing, even if all the signs aren’t clear.

• Many major religions emphasize having a good heart, sound thought and good behavior as universal virtues. Help others with these three principles in mind.

• The goal of the sciences is to find the ultimate truth, which is what the major world religions are also seeking. Scientists attain this goal by using external tools, while religion draws upon an internal force. Put both to good use to tackle your goals.

• Be kind to all people and beings without discrimination. These teachings are abundant in many world religions, and were as true thousands of years ago as they are today.

• Human beings consist of three parts -- mind, body and spirit. The spirit is the lead, the mind is in-between and the body is the follower. Confusion will arise if the mind or the body becomes the lead. Check in with your spirit often. • Tolerance is a practice that comes from the heart. Make sure your heart is light and free of judgment. • If there is negativity underlying your actions, the good you do will not be felt. To do the most good you can, find balance and come from a place of positivity.

En estudios realizados sobre el poder energético de las chacras, se les ha asociado con un color determinado. La noticia ha sido recibida como una bendición por aquellas personas que no encuentran alivio a sus padecimientos y enfermedades en la medicina tradicional. Aunque parezca sorprendente, en muchas ocasiones a través de la terapia del color se puede prevenir y eliminar cualquier patología sin importar el estado crítico o avanzado que reporte.

los ojos y concentrarse fijamente en el color naranja. Finalmente visualice que esparce grandes cantidades de color en la chacra correspondiente. Si le es difícil conciliar el sueño, visualice el azul del cielo e imagine que flota en el espacio y que alcanza los planetas y las estrellas. Para incrementar la potencia sexual se aconseja visualizar tonos de rojo encendido, posteriormente imaginar que cubre todo nuestro ser y que al final toda la cantidad de color se acumula en la chacra correspondiente. Para realizar este tipo de terapias se necesitan practicar ejercicios previos de relajación y prolongar su duración en varios intervalos por lo menos durante quince minutos. Las terapias asociadas a las chacras y los colores resultan efectivas y muy prácticas porque el organismo humano tiene la capacidad de la autocuración psíquica.

• Get an innocuous conversation started amongst family members and friends. A spiritual text, such as “Coming Home,” can make a great gift for someone moving on to the next life stage, such as a high school or college graduate; and can be a helpful way to revisit world religions and spiritual concepts. More information can be found at www.BookComingHome.com. In our modern society, it can easy to lose touch with your spirituality. But exploring this side of yourself can help you have a deeper appreciation and broader understanding of other cultures and systems of belief.

Rosa Angélica Castañeda SAN JOSE, CA Decorative. Technological. Practical. Amorphous solid material. Art. It "attracts artists, engineers, chemists and designers who want to make art using this limitless versatile material.” Glass versatility is undefined. It has creatively evolved aside of the practical and technological use into an artistic form of expression worldwide, and the exponential evolvement of Silicon Valley is the perfect platform in which to explore this innovative imaginative movement. “Sparks: California Glass Networks 1960s to Present, The Glass Movement Catches Fire in California” is an exhibit in conjunction with the 44th Annual Glass Art Society Conference in SanJose on June 5-7, 2015. It is an “exhibit that highlights the strong glass community in California and the many schools, public access groups and artists and collector groups that have supported the glass arts in California since the 1960’s,” said Mary White, co-curator for the Sparks exhibit, former head of San Jose State University’s Glass Program, a Fulbright Scholar, and this year’s Honorary Lifetime Membership Award Recipient for Outstanding Service to the Glass Art Society. She is an adjunct instructor at St. Mary’s College of California Held at the Carmen Castellano Fine Art Gallery in San Jose City College, the exhibit will highlight the important contributions and networks created between over twenty four California higher education art programs and California glass organizations who have contributed to the development of the art glass

movement from the 1960’s to the present. It includes works from 57 faculties and, or alumni representing most glass programs in the state, along with a large scale wall timeline. The start of a new expression… Originating in America in the late 1950s, then spreading west and then internationally, the prominence of this movement allowed the artist to experiment and reimagine the uses of this amorphous material in a more intimate setting away from the factory practicalities, becoming elegant aesthetic forms of art. The American Glass movement is strongly integrated to higher education. San Jose State, along with UC Berkeley were first on the west coast to begin hot glass programs in the early 1960s—where many programs and artists branched off from. Considered the grandfather of American Glass, a ceramics professor at University of Wisconsin, Madison, in 1962 Harvey Littleton was taken by the idea that the artist and maker could be the same. He insisted that “glass was as valid a material for sculptural exploration as bronze, wood, or stone,” informed White. “Sparks” highlights the multiplicity in the wide range of approaches to glass making: hot furnace glass, flameworking, slumping and fusing, bead making, neon and light, glass cutting and stained glass. The exhibition is a way to recognize the distinctiveness in this artform and a space to footprint its evolvement. It is a way to explore how different artists discovered glass since 1962 in higher education and in various communities.

The historical perspective is brought with the work of John Burton and Glen William Lukens, both glass artists from Southern California in the 1950s right before the birth of the movement. Joe Hawley and James Wayne are two of the first graduate of SJSU Glass Program and both former instructors at SJCC, are also recognized in the exhibition. The schools featured are University of California Berkeley, School of Environmental Design, San Jose State University School of Arts & Design, CCA, formerly California College of Arts & Crafts, San Francisco State University, Cal State Fresno, Cal State San Bernardino, Cal State Chico, Cal State Fullerton, Palomar College and Santa Monica College to name a few. Aside from higher institutions, non-profit artist and collector groups such as Public Glass and The Crucible help foster artists such as Jaime Guerrero and Viviana Paredes, exhibiting artists at Movimiento de Arte y Cultura Latino Americana (MACLA) in this year’s GAS Conference in San Jose who uses the medium in a political and social context to critique issues with their social activism. This is one example of the infinite usage of the glass medium. The exhibit hopes to “Sparks” excitement for this art medium, and through its historical documentation envision possibilities of glass as an inventive art in the future.

The exhibit will be open until June 7, 2015 at San Jose City College Carmen Castellano Fine Arts Gallery.

hesivo. De allí viene el sencillo de “Atlas”, que es una de las canciones mas populares de el grupo.

Arturo Hilario EL OBSERVADOR Tuve la oportunidad de hablar con Blas Cernicchiaro, que es el vocalista de la banda Mexicana de rock alternativo BETA. La banda tiene sus raíces en la ciudad de Puebla, en donde Blas dice que empezó la agrupación y el amor con la musica. Desde entonces, Blas y su banda BETA a tenido muchas instancias de diversión y descubrimiento. “BETA lleva casi 12 años juntos, y nos juntamos porque somos de la misma ciudad.”

Después de acompañar a una amigo a ver un grupo tocar dice Blas que “me enamore de la banda. Les pedí si podía tocar con ellos, y así es como entre al proyecto de BETA que a ese tiempo tenia otro nombre.” Tenían alrededor de 16 o 17 anos y empezaron a tocar covers de otros grupos, cosas que les gustaban. Luego de esto empezaron a tener oportunidades de tocar en fiestas y otros eventos. Es cuando tomaron mas en serio lo que podía ser la banda y su sonido único. “Empezamos a componer nuestra música,

sacamos nuestro primer disco cuando teníamos 18 anos” dice Blas. “Teníamos una oportunidad de hacer algo autentico. Sacando el segundo disco es cuando nació el nombre de BETA, con ese disco tuvimos la oportunidad de salir del país (en Canadá y en estados unidos) y hacer también un poco mas de reconocimiento.” BETA apareció en canales como TeleHit y varias publicaciones como Rolling Stone y GritaRadio. El EP “Luces” salió en 2013 y con este álbum vino mas aclama y un sonido mas co-

El estilo sonico de la banda también cambio con la introducción de su material original y nuevo producer. “Empezamos teniendo una influenza muy americana, creo que todavía tenemos esa influencia en nuestra música, del rock alternativo americano. Pues en un principio eran covers pero queríamos hacer algo inesperado” dice Blas. También lograron a moverse a hacer música en su idioma de origen. “Creemos que es un idioma increíble, que es una falta de respeto no hacer canciones en nuestro idioma. Nuestro primer disco fue enteramente en español.” Este giro también les ayudo a enfocar sus metas y los fans respondieron positivamente. Dice Blas, “se notaba mucho en cuanto la técnica y creatividad. Ahora estamos muy contentos y muy cómodos con el sonido de este nuevo disco.” El nuevo disco de BETA se

ENTERTAINMENT llamara “Medusa” y saldrá en unos meses. En los Estados Unidos tocaron un “mini tour” en 3 fechas en Nueva York. Tocaron en el CBGB Fest y NEANY Fest. La reacción de los que escuchaban fue muy bien dice Blas. “Nos a pasado algo constantemente,” algo que les da fe y motivan a trabajar con afán. “La gente sale muy contenta de nuestros shows. Muchas veces se impresionan de lo que escuchan y eso nos motiva mucho a seguir tocando. En estados unidos nos fue muy bien, y estamos esperando a volver a a los estados unidos con una gira mas formal.” BETA acaba de terminar un tour por la el norte de la Republica de Mexico llamado “Ya No Hay Respetour” con las bandas Sputnik y D1N1 que empezó en Toluca, Mexico en Marzo y de allí cubrió 21 ciudades, acabando con presentaciones en su nativo Puebla y el distrito federal en Mayo. Dice Blas que fue impresionante, con 200-700 personas llegando a escuchar las bandas.

Esto salió en la a banda recibiendo ofertas para tocar en Chile ademas de empezar un tour en el sur de Mexico. Blas dice, “es una propuesta fresca de rock, es interesante la mezcla del idioma, no ha sido explorado en un rato nuestro genero, ” dice Blas. Agrega, “es el factor sorpresa que creo que se a perdido en el rock; que una canción te sorprenda por eso creo que (BETA) ofrece esa facultad que sorprende al escuchar.” Finalmente dice el vocalista de BETA, “somos muy energéticos, muy entregados y eso nos a servido mucho para que la gente se asocie mucho con el proyecto. Esta llena de detalles técnicos interesantes y estructuralmente las canciones están muy buen armadas.”

Pueden escuchar y seguir a BETA en las redes sociales, facebook.com/Betaoficial y soundcloud.com/ betaoficial.
