PLAN TO SPEAK UP WITH YOUR VOICE AND VOTE TO REALLY ENJOY INDEPENDENCE DAY, WEDNESDAY, JULY 4, 2018

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR Too many significant events occurred this week which we all need to understand. To help, first read the U.S. Declaration of Independence. Then the U.S. Constitution (especially its first three articles). These documents present the ideals and methods whereby “We, The People” are governed by officials we elect. Many individual rights (and responsibilities) are enumerated which are essential to creating the freedom to seek 'life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness'. The U.S. Constitution's first ten amendments are known as 'The Bill of Rights'. Its authors were all men who practiced the Christian faith and were all immigrant refugees from Europe. They created this democratic form of governance which is being changed by the Trump-Republican Administration whose actions are not MAKING AMERICA GREAT at all. Trump is undermining a government which has taken care of its residents since the 1929 Great Depression. Understand that American Democracy is a 'governance work in progress' which undergoes changes. During its history, Black slaves have become freemen and citizens (1865); the income tax was developed and levied, and women also became voting citizens (1919). The original 'American' citizens were White, Anglo-SaxonProtestants (WASPS); all were business persons; all supported the philosophy that 'all men were created equal’ (under GOD's Laws). All had experienced persecution, civic and royal family harassment, and religious oppression. Recall that President Hoover (1929) initiated import tariffs on imported goods; soon thereafter, the Great Depression's trade wars and isolationism resulted in

unemployment rates of 25%. At that time the Federal Government had no entitlement programs designed to assist the impoverished and needy. President Roosevelt told this nation that our greatest issue was 'fear itself ' as steps were taken to change the U.S. Supreme Court to moderate its conservatism which did not support assisting business and the unemployed. The Democratic 'New Deal' programs which generated jobs using government programs such as WPA (Works Project Administration) and the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps). Social Security Administration was initiated to provide retirees some income entitlements which prevented abject poverty. Programs for widows, orphans, and handicapped/ disabled individuals were created and implemented by Department of Health & Human Services. During the 1930's the rise of authoritarian dictatorships occurred. Nazi German's Adolph Hitler and Fascist Italy's Benito Mussolini became the dictators who invaded European nations and North Africa. In the Asian sector, Imperial Japan invaded Korea, China, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore and many South Pacific island nations. Its attack on Pearl Harbor brought America out of its isolation and into WWII as “The Arsenal of Democracy”. It was America under the leadership of FDR followed by Harry Truman that America became the dominant global power which kept Communist Russia (Stalin era) and Mao's China contained during the Cold War with its ICBM (inter-continental ballistic missiles) deterrents. WWII was declared over in December of 1946... only to be followed by the Korean Conflict (1950); Cuban Missile Crisis (1962); Vietnam War (1974); Desert Storm (1990); and several other military interventions. NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) was effective in

keeping Communist Russia out of East Europe. These incidents blemished the 73 years of world peace since 1945 when America, in collaboration with its Allies, successfully prevailed against the totalitarian Axis Powers (Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and Imperial Japan). During WWII an estimated 80 million humans perished. Americans do not know that Mexican-American troops were the first to land in North Africa (and Europe at Sicily). Sixty MexicanAmericans were awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor... the highest number awarded to this single ethnic group about which today's President Trump knows very little. Recently, 'Los Tigres del Norte', a critically acclaimed Mexican band with roots in San Jose, entertained an assembly of 4,000 Latino troops somewhere in the Mid-East (per statements made on Comunidad del Valle, Damian Trujillo, producer, NBC 3, Sunday, 06.24.2018). Despite Mr. Trump's pejoratives, Latinos remain patriotic defenders of our American Democracy. Most of our ground troops today come from low income marginalized communities whose youth use military service to earn professional training. After WWII America's Marshall Plan, initiated 1946, generously rebuilt the economies and social infrastructures of both its allies and enemies. This Marshall Plan kept Americans fully employed resulting in the domestic American Consumer economy which was the envy of all nations, even to this day. It distributed wealth throughout all levels of both American society and many other nations (such as Japan and Germany). A robust global economy grew during those 72 post WWII years. American troops prevailed when political priorities did not interfere with superior strategic military efforts (Desert Storm). A transition happened when our

military became 'totally volunteer professionals'. America's society and political leadership have lost contact with the reality that our American personal freedoms were earned by the blood, sweat, tears, and lives of those 'grunts' who kept this nation's enemies at bay (or defeated). In addition, many well-off Americans who benefit from the public funded National Institutes of Health (NIH) and National Science Foundation (NSF)...both of which provide grants to university research centers where bio-medical, engineering, and physics research first developed the knowledge and know- how which permitted developments in electronics, biology, and medical sciences. Many firms in Silicon Valley use technical know-how first developed by federal government programs (and Pentagon contracts). The World Wide Web is one such development. Where would Facebook be today without that public funded knowledge of nuclear physics, especially the electron? Getting back to this week's happenings: Latino families, must not be separated from their children when seeking asylum. Mr. Trump's executive order does not deal with putting those 2,300 Latino kids back into the natural and rightful guardianship of parents. What goes on at the border is similar to what the Nazis did to Jewish families. The inability of Congress to craft a comprehensive Immigration policy which gives 11 million undocumented residents some sort of legal resident status is immoral and criminal. The U.S. Supreme Court approved (5-4 vote) the TRAVEL BAN to and from 7 Muslim nations plus Venezuela on Trump Administration's third try. The true culprits are radical Jihadist terrorists who have an ideology not appropriately neutralized by military power. Dissent was by Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor who compared it to the internment

of Japanese-American citizens by President FDR (1942). A Japanese-American, Peter Korematsu, of San Leandro, CA, resisted internment. This case, assisted by American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), lost at the Supreme Court (1944); but was submitted again when documentary evidence withheld by government was rediscovered by an investigative researcher, Peter Irons, who took this case back the U.S. Supreme Court and WON. This week’s U.S. Supreme Court did not include Peter Korematsu's case when adjudicating this Travel Ban. The “Janus v. AFSCME (American Federation of State, County, & Municipal Employees) case is about taking away the freedom (and choice) of working people to join together in strong unions to improve their lives and sustain their families. Unions were denied the right to collect fees from non-union employees who benefited from the collective bargaining performed by Union negotiators. Along with Wisconsin Governor's Scott Walker taking away the collective bargaining rights of public employee union, this was another step by Republican conservatives to weaken Labor Unions who effectively organize 'Get Out the Vote' efforts. The Supreme Court denied the union the right to collect fees. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, after 30 years on the bench, announced his retirement. This may mean that President Trump will get to appoint his second conservative Supreme Court Justice. If that happens, Roe v. Wade (Abortion) may be reversed. Many entitlement programs (Social Security, public education and Medicare) may become privatized. This is why it is very important to flip the Senate and House from RED to Blue. Only registered voters who actually vote this coming Tuesday, November 6, 2018 may do that. Plan to speak up with your voice and vote and then enjoy your Independence Day Holiday, July 4, 2018.

UNA CRISIS DE SALUD PÚBLICA especialmente a los jóvenes hispanos y afro americanos. No estoy hablando de las lamentables muertes por la epidemia del consumo de opiaceos que han acaparado la atencion nacional, sino la menos notoria amenaza del contagio del Virus de Inmunodeficiencia Adquirida (VIH). De acuerdo con cifras de los Centros de Control de Enfermedades (CDC), los hispanos representaron aproximadamente una cuarta parte de todos los nuevos diagnósticos del VIH en los Estados Unidos en 2015, a pesar de representar aproximadamente el 18% de la población total del país.

José López Zamorano La Red Hispana Estados Unidos padece una auténtica crisis de salud pública que amenaza desproporcionalmente a nuestras minorias,

En 2016, los jóvenes de 13 a 24 años de edad conformaron el 21% de todos los nuevos diagnósticos de VIH en los Estados Unidos. La mayoría (81%) de esos nuevos diagnósticos ocurrieron entre los jóvenes gays y bisexuales. No hay indicios de que la situación haya registrado avances significativos en los últimos años.

Es innegable que los latinos ocupamos algunos de los lugares más bajos en un amplio número de indicadores de bienestar y prosperidad, por ejemplo en la proporcion de familias hispanas por debajo de la linea de la pobreza o el porcentaje de latinos graduados de la universidad. Este dramático panorama del contagio del VIH es sin duda un lastre para el futuro de nuestra comunidad. Se trata de un horizonte particularmente preocupante si tomamos en cuenta que los jovenes, el futuro de nuestra comunidad, tienen uno de los niveles más bajos de atención médica oportuna, en especial aquellos jóvenes hispanos o afro americanos gays y bisexuales, de acuerdo con los datos de los CDC. Como periodista y conductor radial he tenido la oportunidad de colaborar durante varios años en varias campañas informativas y de concientización sobre VIH que han tenido un mensaje muy claro: el VIH no es una condena de muerte.

Y la mejor manera de hacer frente al contagio empieza por hacerse la prueba. Y de allí se abre la conversación con tu familia, tus amigos y con profesionales sobre prevención o tratamiento. Nunca es demasiado tarde y las pruebas son confidenciales y gratuitas. Entre más temprano mejor. El 27 de junio es el Día Nacional de la Prueba del VIH como parte de una campaña titulada “A mi manera”. Me parece un titulo apropiado porque no importa si decides hacerte la prueba de día o de noche, con tu médico particular, en una clínica, con una organización comunitaria, lo importante es hacerte la prueba en tus propios términos, pero lo más pronto posible. Para frenar la propagacion se requiere el concurso de todos, este es un asunto serio de salud pública y requiere la participación decidida de toda la comunidad.

DESPITE CONCERNS, NO INCREASE IN BULLYING OR CYBERBULLYING AMONG HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN 2017

Deborah Temkin Child Trends During and immediately following the 2016 presidential election, several stakeholders raised concerns that negative rhetoric expressed in the course of the election cycle was leading to increased bullying among students. Although these concerns were supported by anecdotal reports from educators across the country, nationally representative data were unavailable at the time to support these claims. With the release of the 2017 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance Survey data, which include an item on bullying experienced within the previous 12 months, the

question of whether the election was associated with increases in bullying can finally be answered. The data show that, contrary to claims that bullying increased as a result of the election, bullying in fact remained steady: Approximately one in five 9th through 12th grade students reported being bullied; the difference between the 2015 (20.2 percent) and 2017 (19.0 percent) rates is not statistically significant. This finding holds across racial and sexual orientation subgroups. In both years, high school students who identify as lesbian, gay, or bisexual (LGB) were almost three times more likely than their straight peers to report being bullied. The rate of cyberbullying also remained statistically unchanged in 2017; as

with previous years, these figures were significantly lower (15 percent) than rates of bullying at school. These findings are consistent with trend analyses going back to 2009: There is no statistically significant difference between rates of bullying in 2009 (19.9 percent) and 2017 (19.0 percent), or rates of cyberbullying in 2011 (16.2 percent) and 2017 (14.9 percent). These data suggest that, although a substantial percentage of high school students still experiences bullying, no

discernible increase could be associated with the 2016 election. Still, youth look to adults as models for which behaviors are acceptable and which are not. Research shows that bullying prevention programs are most effective when adults model kind and respectful behaviors in their interactions with both children and other adults. While negative rhetoric may not have led to an increase in bullying, modeling more respectful behaviors could be a critical step toward future reductions in rates of both bullying and cyberbullying.

phone. A solid job offer will include on-site paperwork (at which time you can often set up direct deposit of your earnings into your bank account and may be asked for your Social Security number).

School is officially out, which means high school and college students nationwide are looking for ways to earn some money this summer. Unfortunately, scammers know this too, and they’re constantly trying to scam young job seekers. In fact, employment scams were the most common scam for people ages 25-34 last year. In 2017, employment scams ranked as the third riskiest scam according to our BBB ScamTracker. More than 2,000 people were impacted by these scams. That’s why your BBB is offering some helpful tips to avoid these fraudsters and ensure your summer break is well spent. • Fake job postings. For many high school and college students, finding a summer job is a priority. BBB is warning consumers that sometimes seasonal job postings may not end up as advertised. If a prospective employer doesn’t readily share job details, has no online or physical presence or contact information, and isn’t interested in doing an interview, chances are it’s a scam. You can always check the BBB ScamTracker

• Paperwork. Reading the fine print is always key, so when a potential employer doesn’t offer you a written contract, that’s a big no-no. Be sure to ask for everything in writing prior to taking a job (and ask questions about anything you don’t understand). A good company will be happy to discuss your offer with you and be ready to answer any questions you might have. Photo Credit: Pixabay

report for prevalent employment scams in your area as well. • Up-front fees. If someone asks to have fees submitted up front for materials or registration, walk away. No employer should ask you to pay out-of-pocket for work-related costs. Nor should a potential employer ask you to invest in the company you’d be working for. • Unpaid work. No employer should require

• Personal information. Legitimate employers never ask for sensitive information like a credit card number or banking information during the application process. Don’t share any financial information via email or over the verano se lo pase bien. • Anuncios de trabajo falsos. Para muchos estudiantes de secundaria y universitarios, encontrar un trabajo de verano es una prioridad. BBB advierte a los consumidores que a veces los puestos de trabajo estacionales pueden no terminar como se anuncian. Si un futuro empleador no comparte fácilmente los detalles del trabajo, no tiene presencia en línea o física o información de contacto, y no está interesado en hacer una entrevista, lo más probable es que sea una estafa. Usted siempre puede comprobar el BBB o el ScamTracker informe para las estafas de empleo prevalente en su área también. • Honorarios por adelantado.  Si alguien pide que le envíen los honorarios al frente por materiales o matrícula, aléjese. Ningún empleador debe pedirle que pague de su bolsillo por costos relacionados con el trabajo. Tampoco debería un empleador potencial pedirle que invierta en la compañía para la que estaría trabajando.

En 2017, las estafas de empleo se clasificaron como la tercera estafa arriesgadas de acuerdo con nuestro BBB ScamTracker. Más de 2.000 personas fueron impactadas por estas estafas.

• Trabajo no remunerado. Ningún empleador debe requerir que usted realice un día de trabajo de "ejecución de prueba" en cualquier momento durante su proceso de solicitud. Manténgase al tanto de hacer cualquier trabajo hasta que tenga una oferta formal de trabajo y haya completado todos los trámites de contratación. • Información Personal. Los empleadores legítimos nunca piden información confidencial como un número de tarjeta de

• Work-from-home scam. What’s not to love about the idea of making money from the comfort of your own home all summer long? Sadly, many offers purporting workfrom-home opportunities are scams in disguise. If you’re looking for at-home work opportunities, search for the company and opportunity online. Verify the company’s contact information; if they aren’t willing to provide a phone number and address that you can verify is real, it may be a scam. You can reach your BBB at info@bbbemail. org or (510) 844-2000, or by visiting bbb. org. crédito o información bancaria durante el proceso de solicitud. No comparta ninguna información financiera por correo electrónico o por teléfono. Una oferta de trabajo sólida incluirá el papeleo en el sitio (en ese momento usted puede a menudo establecer el depósito directo de sus ganancias en su cuenta bancaria y puede ser solicitado su número de seguro social). • Papeleo. Leyendo la letra fina es siempre la clave, así que cuando un empleador potencial no le ofrece un contrato escrito, aléjese. Asegúrese de pedir todo por escrito antes de tomar un trabajo (y hacer preguntas sobre cualquier cosa que no entienda). Una buena compañía se complace en discutir su oferta con usted y estar listo para responder a cualquier pregunta que pueda tener. • Estafa de trabajo desde casa. ¿Qué es mejor que la idea de hacer dinero de la comodidad de su propia casa durante todo el verano? Lamentablemente, muchas ofertas que pretenden oportunidades de trabajo desde el hogar son estafas disfrazadas. Si estás buscando oportunidades de trabajo a domicilio, busca la empresa y la oportunidad en línea. Verificar la información de contacto de la compañía; si no están dispuestos a proporcionar un número de teléfono y la dirección que usted puede verificar es real, puede ser una estafa. Puede ponerse en contacto con su BBB a través de info@bbbemail.org o (510) 8442000, o en bbb.org.

VALLE DE GUADALUPE, LA CUNA DE LOS VINOS MEXICANOS QUE BUSCAN SORPRENDER

Isabel Reviejo EFE Ensenada (México) - La efervescencia de una primera generación que todavía está forjando una identidad propia y unas condiciones climáticas privilegiadas forman el caldo de cultivo en el que florece el Valle de Guadalupe, cuna de unos vinos mexicanos que buscan sorprender al consumidor. El Valle de Guadalupe, en el noroccidental estado de Baja California, comprende alrededor de 10.000 hectáreas de cultivo que se distribuyen a lo largo de un corredor de unos 25 kilómetros. En el estado, la historia de este producto se remonta al siglo XVIII, cuando los jesuitas llegaron al lugar y empezaron el cultivo de la vid. No obstante, el éxito de la región es relativamente reciente, ya que explotó con la consolidación de la Ruta del vino hace menos de una década. Actualmente, en el Valle se produce el 90 % de los vinos nacionales y ha convertido al municipio de Ensenada en el punto clave del enoturismo en el país. "Uno de los encantos del Valle de Guadalupe es que prácticamente todos los que estamos acá somos primera generación, independientemente de

En la finca, donde producen unas 100.000 botellas al año con una decena de etiquetas diferentes, señalan que la temporada de este año viene con algo de retraso, porque los cambios del tiempo han obstaculizado la "dormancia" de la uva.

nuestra edad", dice a Efe Fernando Pérez Castro, cuya familia es propietaria de las fincas La Carrodilla y La Lomita.

"No va a venir una floración homogénea; a lo mejor se va a complicar la pisca porque vas a tener fruta madura y otra no, vas a tener que piscar en dos tiempos", argumenta.

En uno de los rincones de La Carrodilla, el también presidente de Provino Baja California asegura que lo que hace al Valle especial es el hecho de que "se siente que hay algo que se está creando".

De acuerdo con datos del Consejo Mexicano Vitivinícola, el consumo per cápita de vino en México es de 750 mililitros, y en los últimos años ha crecido entre un 8 % y 12 % anual.

Agrega que el consumidor mexicano está creciendo de la mano de los productores y su curiosidad forma parte de esta "tormenta perfecta" que ha acabado propiciando el "boom" de la zona.

Al no estar enfocados en "vender un proyecto", como podría pasar en aquellos viñedos que perpetúan una tradición de décadas, la familia Pérez Castro prefiere que su producto hable por sí solo.

En su caso, están muy enfocados en los monovarietales -con cuatro vinos: Chenin Blanc, Shiraz, Cabernet y Tempranillo-, así como en que la uva refleje realmente "lo que pasó en el campo" y sea demasiado manipulada en bodega o crianza. Asimismo, son el primer viñedo con certificación orgánica en México y aplican prácticas biodinámicas, que consisten en cuidar, ante todo, la salud de la tierra, apoyando la biodiversidad y una intervención humana responsable. A unos kilómetros de allí se encuentra Viñas de Garza, un proyecto familiar de 15 hectáreas plantadas propiedad de Amado Garza. El viticultor explica a Efe que lo que diferencia al vino de Baja California de los que se producen en otros rincones de México es el clima, que favorece que las plantas hagan "su maduración fenólica increíble". Es decir, en otras partes del mundo en las que no hace tanto calor, la uva "batalla un poco" para llegar a los grados necesarios, pero aquí no se da ese problema. "Por eso los vinos de Baja California tienen mucha estructura, y obviamente tienen mucho alcohol, llega esa maduración hasta donde tú quieras", señala Garza. Además, la cercanía al mar influye en los sabores y textura de la uva: "Lo que le gusta a la uva es que tengamos un calor en el día y en la noche baja hasta 15 grados de diferencia. Y se hidrata, entra la brisa del mar hasta acá".

Los vinos extranjeros siguen manteniendo la preferencia: el 70 % de lo que se consume en el país es importado, mayoritariamente de Francia, España, Argentina y Chile. Pérez argumenta que el abanico de

Los consumidores mexicanos tiene un perfil joven y, a diferencia de los más veteranos, ya no privilegian el vino extranjero, sino que aprecian "las cosas que se hacen bien en nuestro país" y tienen la suficiente "ductilidad" para probar nuevos vinos. "Y si te quieres sorprender con un vino, pensaría que un vino mexicano es la mejor elección", concluye Pérez.

DOS COMUNIDADES DE CALIFORNIA, ENTRE LAS DIEZ MEJOR HABITABLES

JUNE 29 - JULY 5, 2018

TWO CALIFORNIA COMMUNITIES RANK IN TOP TEN FOR LIVABILITY up. "It allows people to look at 60 indicators across seven categories of livability - and they are housing, neighborhoods, transportation, environment, health, engagement and opportunity," says McPherson.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Two California communities scored very high on the new 2018 AARP Livability Index.

Suzanne Potter California News Service Sacramento, CA - Ya estan los puntajes del Fndice 2018 de Habitabilidad de la AARP ("2018 AARP Livability Index"), y dos ciudades de California - San Francisco y Berkley - estan entre las diez mejores del pais, por las multiples medidas de calidad de vida que ofrecen para personas de todas las edades, pero particularmente para los residentes en edad avanzada. San Francisco perdio puntos por los elevados costos de la vivienda, pero logro el segundo sitio nacional como ciudad grande "habitable" por sus eventos culturales, vecindarios caminables y una transportacion accesible para todos. Y Berkeley ocupa el decimo lugar nacional entre las ciudades medianas, por muchas razones. Nancy McPherson, Directora Estatal de la AARP California, dice que cualquiera puede consultar en el mapa el nivel de habitabilidad de un lugar, basandose en el "Zip Code" para saber que posicion ocupa su barrio. "Permite que la gente vea 60 indicadores en siete categorias de habitabilidad -  que son vivienda, barrios, transportacion, medio ambiente, salud, compromiso y oportunidades."

La AARP introdujo el Fndice de Habitabilidad en 2015 para ayudar a las ciudades a detectar lo que pudieran mejorar para elevar la calidad de vida a sus residentes y apoyar a los adultos mayores a medida que envejecen. Usted puede usar en internet la herramienta interactiva en la pagina "LIVinderxhub.aarp. org". McPherson elogia a los lideres de West Sacramento tambien, quienes se basaron en el indice como punto de referencia para luego actuar. "Asi que apenas este mayo la ciudad lanzo un servicio de viajes bajo demanda a una tarifa muy baja, con el que la gente puede andar por toda la ciudad de West Sacramento para ir a comprar viveres, a sus consultas medicas, o a donde necesiten ir. Y lo estan haciendo en sociedad con una empresa local que ofrece transporte." Dice que los residentes pueden tambien usar el indice de calificacion para abogar ante lideres locales, negocios y grupos no lucrativos para pedirles mejoras en cuanto al aire y agua limpios, acceso a bibliotecas, compras, parques, cuidados medicos, empleos, educacion y transporte. La pagina de internet es: https:// livindexhub.aarp.org/. Las calificaciones de Berkeley estan en:  https://pnsne.ws/2lqSeAx. Las calificaciones de San Francisco: https://pnsne.ws/2IcZg4A.

San Francisco lost points for high housing costs, but still scored number one in the nation as a "livable" large city, for its cultural events, walkable neighborhoods, and transportation that is accessible for all. And Berkeley is ranked number 10 in the country among medium-sized cities, for many of the same reasons. Nancy McPherson, state director of AARP California, says anyone can search the livability map by ZIP Code to see how their neighborhood stacks

AARP introduced the Livability Index in 2015 to help cities pinpoint the things they could be doing better to improve quality of life for their residents, and support older adults as they age. You can use the web-based interactive tool at 'LIVindexhub. aarp.org.' McPherson also praises city leaders in West Sacramento who used the index as a baseline, then took action. "So just this May, the city launched an on-demand ride service at a very low fare, where people can take rides all across the city of West Sacramento to get to the grocery store or medical appointments, or wherever they need to go," says McPherson. "And they're doing it in partnership with a local ridesourcing company. " She says residents also can use the index ratings to advocate with local leaders, business and nonprofit groups for improvements in clean air and water, and access to libraries, shopping, parks, medical care, jobs, education and transportation.

The City of Berkeley scored very high on the Livability Index due to its parks, transportation, and access to education. Photo Credit: Introvert/Wikimedia Commons

COUNTY OF SANTA CLARA APPROVES $25 MILLION IN FIRST-TIME HOMEBUYER ASSISTANCE

Photo Credit: Julián Gentilezza/ Unsplash

Office of Santa Clara County SANTA CLARA COUNTY, CALIF.— The County of Santa Clara Board of Supervisors unanimously approved $25 million of 2016 Measure A Affordable Housing Bond funds (Measure A) to finance a new, first-time homebuyer down payment loan program. Through a partnership between the County’s Office of Supportive Housing and Housing Trust Silicon Valley (that will administer the program) the funds will assist approximately 250 households over the first five years of the program by providing deferred loans for down payments of up to 17% of a home’s purchase price. In November 2016, Santa Clara County voters approved Measure A, a $950 million  affordable housing general obligation bond. A portion of those assets were earmarked to fund a loan program for first-time homebuyers with incomes not exceeding 120% of the Area Median Income (AMI). “As part of our overall strategy to expand affordable housing options in the county, this loan program gives us the opportunity to offer many first-time home buyers a financially viable way to fulfill their dream of homeownership,” said County of Santa Clara Supervisor Mike Wasserman, Vice Chair of the Board’s Housing, Land Use, Environment and Transportation Committee. As the number of loan assistance programs have declined over the past

eight years, many potential first-time homebuyers have either postponed purchasing a home or chosen to relocate to find more affordable housing options. “Affordable housing has been one of Santa Clara County’s biggest challenges for several years now, and it seems to get worse every month. The first-time homebuyer assistance program will give many residents an opportunity that would otherwise be out of reach. Our people are Santa Clara County’s most valuable asset, and this program will help ensure that the County remains the vibrant, welcoming place to live that we all love,” said County of Santa Clara Supervisor Ken Yeager. The County’s down payment loan program does not require monthly principal or interest payments. Borrowers will repay the principal loan amount plus a share of the appreciation based on the percentage of the loan borrowed. Payment is deferred until the Maturity Date is reached, sale of the home, or refinance of the first mortgage. “Housing Trust is a natural fit to administer the County’s program,” said Kevin Zwick, CEO of Housing Trust Silicon Valley. “We have over 18 years of lending experience to over 2,500 homebuyers. We’re glad to be in a position to assist the County of Santa Clara with this Measure A initiative.” For information regarding the countywide first-time homebuyer program, call Housing Trust Silicon Valley at (408) 436-3450, ext. 234.

Notice is hereby given that Jeffrey Mentzos as duly appointed trustee pursuant to the Deed of Trust executed by Gloria Cabral aka Gloria Cabral Robles, a widow as her sole and separate property dated September 1, 2007 and recorded November 2, 2007, as Instrument No. 19639344, in Book N/A of Official Records in the office of the County Recorder of SANTA CLARA County, State of California, will sell on July 18, 2018 at 9:00 AM, LOCATED AT 15585 MONTERY ROAD, MORGAN HILL, CALIFORNIA, at public auction, to the highest bidder for cash or check as described below, payable in full at time of sale, all right, title, and interest conveyed to and now held by him under said Deed of Trust, in the property situated in said County and State and as more fully described in the above referenced Deed of Trust. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 3474 GILA DRIVE, SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA 95148, ASSESSORS PARCEL NO. 652-18-021. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. The total amount of the unpaid balance with interest thereon of the obligation secured by the property to be sold plus

reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the notice of Sale is $309,648.26. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept cashier’s checks drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on a property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office where the property is located or

a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 1-206-787-2615. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. PLEASE TAKE NOTICE THAT if the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. Further, if the foreclosure sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the deposit paid and shall have no further recourse or remedy against the Mortgagor, Mortgagee, or Trustee herein. If you have previously been discharged in bankruptcy, you may have been released of personal liability for this loan in which case this notice is intended to exercised the note holders rights against the real property only. As required by law, you are notified that a negative credit reporting may be submitted to a credit report agency if you fail to fulfill the terms of your credit obligation.

SAVING A SPECIES CAN START IN YOUR OWN BACKYARD

JUNE 29 - JULY 5, 2018

What are some ways Artificial Intelligence (AI) is being used to fight climate change and otherwise protect the environment?

Mary Kuhlman California News Service SACRAMENTO, Calif. - With the weekend upon us, wildlife experts are encouraging Californians to consider a project that could possibly save a species. National Pollinator Week, which ends Sunday, is drawing attention to the importance of pollinators for ecosystems and food production. Mary Phillips, senior director of the  Garden for Wildlife program at the National Wildlife Federation, says animal pollinators including bees, butterflies and hummingbirds pollinate one-third of crops in the U.S. "And in fact, one out of every three bites we eat is the direct result of our pollinators' work. That has been estimated to contribute to $29 billion in American food production," says Phillips. But habitat loss, parasites and pesticides have contributed to a steep decline of pollinator populations. In California

there are more than 2,100 native bee species and 200 species of native butterflies. And Phillips says folks are encouraged to plant a garden to support these and other native pollinators. She explains even small gardens can make a difference by increasing diversity of bee species across urban and suburban landscapes. "They can do this by planting anything from a variety of container gardens, if they have a porch or patio, or their backyard or working with community gardens," says Phillips. "And this is really important because pollinators can actually survive in these smaller settings and move from habitat patch to habitat patch." The National Wildlife Federation is part of the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge, which is two-thirds of the way to its goal. Phillips says habitat gardens can be registered to become part of an online mapping system, and folks can also consult the NWF's native plant finder to discover the best plants for their area.

Artificial Intelligence (AI), defined as the capability of machines to imitate intelligent human behavior and learn from data, is considered by many to be the final frontier of computing. And environmentalists and tech companies are now harnessing the power of AI to service to the environment. To wit, Microsoft announced in December 2017 that it is expanding its “AI for Earth” program and committing $50 million over the next five years to put AI technologies in the hands of individuals and organizations working to solve global environmental challenges, including climate change as well as water, agriculture and biodiversity issues. Lucas Joppa, Microsoft’s first Chief Environmental Scientist, is convinced that AI is now mature enough and the global environmental crisis acute enough to justify the creation of an AI platform for the planet. “I believe that for every environmental problem, governments, non-profits, academia and the technology industry need to ask two questions: ‘How can AI help solve this?’ and ‘How can we facilitate the application of AI?’,” Joppa said. The older, but rapidly growing project, eBird, has been demonstrating the power of coupling human observers with AI algorithms to provide a source of reliable data for scientists and environmental decision makers. Based out of Cornell University’s Lab of Ornithology, eBird engages a global network of bird watchers to identify bird species and report their observations through the eBird website or mobile app. Due to the variability in the observations the volunteers make, AI filters observations through collected historical data to improve accuracy. And now with over 500

million bird observations recorded through this global database, Microsoft’s Azure Cloud Computing Program is helping to allow calculations that used to take upwards of two to three weeks to now be accomplished in only hours. California’s One Concern is utilizing AI technology to identify and mitigate future risk stemming from natural disasters. Last year, natural disasters caused a record-breaking $300 million in damage in the U.S. alone. One Concern’s platform can predict the impacts of climate change-driven events, and disasters such as earthquakes, floods and fires at a high degree of resolution and accuracy so that communities can better prepare and respond. Damage from an earthquake can be predicted with 85 percent accuracy within 15 minutes, and flood damage is predicted days ahead of storms. Lastly, whale field research is being revolutionized by AI and drone technologies. “SnotBot,” which doesn’t exactly sound sophisticated, uses drones which allow a vastly different approach to whale research, flying well above the surface of the water where the whales are never touched or approached closely. Snotbots hover above a surfacing whale and collect the blow (or “snot”) exhaled from its lungs, then return back to researchers about a half mile away. Blow samples reveal a vast amount of biological data, including stress hormones and environmental toxins. Prior to SnotBot, data samples of wild whales were gathered by shooting sampling darts from crossbows into the mammal from a loud boat. “It’s not just all about Silicon Valley building cool Silicon Valley things,” says Parley’s Ian Kerr who manages the SnotBot program. “It’s how AI could actually help us save the planet and solve scientific mysteries.”

IMMIGRATION CONFUSION, TRAUMA CONTINUES AT SOUTHERN BORDER

Roz Brown Public News Service ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The immigration crisis at the southern border continued over the weekend, with politicians angry over being denied access to holding facilities. The government has released a fact sheet for how it plans to reunite the thousands of families separated, but the Trump administration admitted it won't happen quickly. Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller traveled with a bipartisan delegation of mayors to the port of entry in Tornillo, Texas, last week. He said the group was denied access to holding facilitates, and he's alarmed by the lack of details for reunification. "And that process is a life-changing tragedy for those kids and those parents that they may never overcome,” Keller said. In recent days, protesters have taken to the streets in New Mexico, Texas, California and other states. Mental health experts have said the trauma of childhood separation is compounded by the violence many children already have witnessed in their home countries. Last week, President Donald Trump signed an executive order ending family separations.  Trauma expert Kirk Ward with Denver's Mount Saint Vincent mental

health services said he expects many of the infants and children taken from their parents under the "zero tolerance" policy will suffer developmental problems. "And if they can't reunite with the caretaker, that will actually begin to alter how the brain views relationships and closeness with others, the more traumatic it will become,” Ward said. Since the Trump administration announced plans to prosecute all immigrants caught along the southwest border with illegally entering the country, more than 2,300 children have been separated from their parent or guardian. Keller said the U.S. has entered "dark days" when mayors from across the country have to tell the federal government their policies on immigration are wrong.

"Because when you actually humanize what they are they trying to dehumanize, everyone thinks this is wrong,” Keller said. “I have never seen anyone watch any of the videos that are out or seen any of those pictures and say, 'That's an America that I think is doing the right thing.'" The government says around 500 children have been reunited with their families. The Department of Health and Human Services has placed other children at about 100 shelters in 17 states. At the same time, the Pentagon is drawing up plans to house as many as 20,000 unaccompanied immigrant children on military bases.

ARRIBA EL TRI

Why You Should Cheer on Mexico in the Final 16

La Albiceleste de Messi busca revancha

Argentina

La selección Argentina regresa a una Copa Mundial con una gran generación de futbolistas que se ha quedado muy cerca de ganar títulos, con cuatro finales perdidas en copas América (2004, 2007, 2015 y 2016) y otra más en Brasil 2014, pero con un Lionel Messi experimentado y maduro como capitán buscará acabar con la racha y tomar revancha.

Arturo Hilario El Observador If your World Cup favorite has moved onto the final 16, congratulations, you are part of the millions of fans who will continue to update their social media for news, interviews and live scores as the games progress into the smaller brackets. For those that whose team has been faded from the games, in a triumphant last hurrah like South Korea, or those that didn’t qualify, like the US, these are some tough times as a fan. If you plan on joining the ranks of supporters for another team, there are some solid options. From Messi and Argentina, to Portugal and Ronaldo, the titans of the sport are left to quarrel on the pitch from now until the final game on Sunday July 15th. Until then, there’s still a lot of ball to play, and why not root for the green shirted Mexican roster, who's victory against previous World Cup winner Germany to start off Russia 2018 was a stunner. Since then “El Tri” has won against South Korea, only to lose 3-0 this week to an aggressive Sweden. But due to South Korea scoring 2 goals to a scoreless Germany, both teams were eliminated, and this pushed both Sweden and Mexico to move onto the next stage. This Monday the team in green faces the onslaught of a Brazil that is hungry to get a cup. With Neymar at the helm, it’s on Mexico to be playing on a technical level beyond what they showed on Monday against Sweden if they have a chance at getting through to a fifth game.

Presencias en mundiales

Although Mexico has made the World Cup the last 6 times, they have yet to get past the knockout round that is coming up for them on Monday. If they do it, it will be tacos and passionate yelling through the streets. The fans of the team are on another level if you’ve ever watched a game live or have been around a game viewing. Yes there are a lot of vuvuzelas, beer and sombreros, but there is an undying spirit that makes everyone family during these games. It’s best when they win of course, because a Mexican game celebration is a great example of how to have a soccer party. With Colombian coach Juan Carlos Osorio leading Mexico, and high-profile players like goalie Guillermo Ochoa, Javier Hernández, and the winning goal scorer of the Germany game Hirving Lozano, there’s going to be a lot of excitement to expect. One thing to note for those still questioning why they should sing “Cielito Lindo” at the top of their lungs on Monday morning, Mexico is the sole team left that is part of the CONCACAF coalition. That should gather support as Mexico stands as the representative of the North American confederation. There is camaraderie in supporting CONCACAF, if it were the USA or Panama I’d advise the same. And if Mexico can get through the battering ram that is Brazil, a certain blue canned alcoholic beverage company will be giving out free drinks that rhyme with “Mud Fight”. So, with some of the most vocal, festive and intense fans in the world, a great matchup potential against Brazil, Mexico is there for your support if you wish to join la familia of “El Tri”.

THE CURRENT REALITY OF AUGMENTED REALITY

also now open to all developers who want to give it a try. You can learn about Amazon’s vision for augmented retail through  AR view in its mobile app. AR view lets you view products in your home before you buy them. That means you can see how that Echo will look on your nightstand, or whether you actually have enough room on your counter for the coffee press you’re eyeing up. Open the Amazon app, tap the camera icon in the search bar, and then hit AR view. It’s been in your pocket for months, and you may not have even known about it. Amazon AR view may currently be a parlor trick, but augmented retail is going to be a multibillion-dollar business all by itself. Microsoft HoloLens

Augmented reality (AR) is on the cusp of being one of the technological advances that are all but guaranteed to change our day-today behavior. Imagine living in a world filled with “movie magic.” A world so packed with computer-generated images, it’s hard to tell fantasy from reality. That’s the dream, but where are we now, and who is going to get us there first? Here’s a quick overview of the state of AR. AR Market Stats AR has already found early use in the $30B digital segment of the home furnishings market with AR applications (aka “Augmented Retail”) from many companies, including Ikea, Wayfair, Lowe’s, and Williams Sonoma.

Expeditions has grown past the educational world and is now available to everyone on both iOS and Android. For developers, Google’s ARCore (which recently expanded to China) is the company’s platform for building AR experiences. Through various APIs, ARCore (which works on most modern Android devices) uses motion tracking, environmental understanding, and light estimation to integrate virtual content with the real world and allow developers to create endless AR experiences on just about any platform they choose through Google’s SDKs (software development kits).

Magic Leap Magic Leap (once the darling of MR) recently showed off the Magic Leap One. It is scheduled to launch this year, and we already know  a fair amount about it (it will use lightfield technology and function similar to Google Glass to create a form of mixed reality).

Samsung Samsung’s main focus is the AR Emoji feature on the Galaxy S9, which is exactly what you think it is. Outside of emojis, Samsung is also using its smart assistant Bixby’s “Bixby Vision” feature (in conjunction with AR) to offer live translation, an AR assistant, and more. Other AR Industry Notables Of course, there are many other companies working on AR hardware and software. Notables include Avegant, Vuzix, and Meta. Optinvent has a headset and so does ODG. Epson has a complete line of headsets with one designed specifically for professional drone users. And  Garmin, Everysight, and Solos each have headsets designed for cyclists. What’s Next? AR is a compelling way to turn data into action, and stating the obvious, the applications are limited only by our imaginations. And while AR may be what’s coming next, the tools are available to everyone, so you should be experimenting with it (or better yet, implementing it) now. Some of the examples here may inspire you, but to gain a true appreciation for the power of AR, you’ve got to apply it to a world you deeply understand. That’s where the magic truly starts to happen.

Remember Google Glass? Glass Enterprise Edition is available for $999 to $1,499. (No glasshole jokes, please.) Apple and ARKit 2

Global spending on AR and virtual reality (VR) technology will grow from $11.4B in 2017 to $215B in 2021. VR headsets will likely be the sales leader until 2019, at which time AR headsets are expected to begin dominating sales.

AR for iOS is ready for prime time. The company  unveiled ARKit 2 at its recent worldwide developer conference (WWDC), which allows for developers’ AR apps to be experienced by multiple users at once (and resumed at a later time in the same state) as well as an overall deeper level of immersion. While some say that Apple has a lot to prove  in the world of AR, the full list of features coming to ARKit 2  is impressive and should leave you excited for the future. If you missed Apple’s AR demo at WWDC, you can catch up here.

Google and ARCore

Facebook and AR Studio

If you want to gain an instant appreciation for how AR will change your future, download the Google Translate app, press the camera button, and point your smartphone camera at a sign or menu or wine bottle written in a language you don’t speak. It’s early days, but you can see where this is going.

Facebook’s AR Studio tools have been used by companies like Netflix (for the company’s first comic book series), FIFA (for some cool 2018 World Cup Russia features), and Nike (which used AR to sell out its stock of the Kyrie 4 in under an hour), which interact with customers in many ways, including via Messenger.

Google AR Expeditions is another great project. It was designed to provide students with augmented learning experiences (like “view” a full-size African elephant up close, or travel to the center of a hurricane) through more than 800 VR and 100 AR experiences.

Amazon Sumerian and Amazon AR View

Software for smartphones by Apple and Google had over half a billion AR-capable devices in the market by the end of 2017. That number is expected to grow to 4.25B devices by 2020.

Microsoft is on the forefront of MR with HoloLens, which launched in early 2016. (Developers looking to create experiences for Microsoft’s platform  can find more info here.) The company is set to unveil HoloLens 2 (which some are saying  may be more powerful  than Google’s upcoming AR headset) sometime this year.
