JUNE 30 - JULY 6, 2017

MAKE PREVENTION OUR INTENTION is based upon the statistical sharing of health care services expenditures which happen to some but not everyone during one's life journey. Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR Currently the U.S. Senate will be voting pro or con on TrumpCare legislation which is being crafted by a Senate Committee behind closed doors. There are no public hearings scheduled; no prior review by anyone, especially Democrats who sit across that aisle. In addition no women Senators are involved nor included in the crafting of this version of TrumpCare. This federal legislation is being crafted in a manner that does not allow any American constituent to make any constructive input nor commentary. This secretive legislative process violates all prior standards of legislative formulation established during the prior 241 years (since this nation declared its independence). This approach violates many standards and practices leading to honest and factual transparency in governance. I do want all to understand the 2010 Affordable Care Act (also known as ObamaCare) is all about health care insurance policy. Its legislative process ensured the health care insurance industry had a competitive role via the insurance bazaars to be created in each state. In California, the Cover California' insurance exchange was created successfully. Understand that the health care insurance industry

The two ObamaCare features to be retained are: 1) No one should be denied health care insurance coverage because of a prior medical condition. And 2) A child may remain fully covered until age 26' by his/her parent's health care insurance policy. A major concern is the lack of women's input...after all, it is women who conceive, carry the fetus in her womb, and delivers a child. Any medical issue which involves the developing fetus needs to remain a decision the potential mother makes with the advice (input) of her medical advisors, her pastor, and her husband (or significant other). This nation's interest resides in having enough women of child-bearing age to be supportive public policy which guarantee that the next generation is begat, nurtured, and receives all essentials (food, shelter, clothing; perinatal care, education, instruction during developmental years, especially 0-5 years of age. When any elected officials in any governance body attempt to decree the who, when, where, and how of child-bearing issues, these elected male individuals are dealing with human biology and cultural issues about which they will have no experience. I would hope that TrumpCare does not deny any funding to any clinic such as Planned Parenthood, which deals with

all medical issues including abortion. Obstetrics and gynecology medical knowledge is invariably used to assist in the delivery of a healthy child...the next generation. Family planning is now possible because of birth control medications (all based upon 17-keto-hydroxy steroid chemistry refined by Carl Djerassi, M.D., Ph.D. who did this biological research in Mexico City during the 1950's which resulted in the 'pill' first produced by Syntex, S.A. which relocated to Stanford Industrial Park. Legislators need to stay out of the privacy of the bedroom; their appropriate role is to deal with the many other issues which enable a mother to appropriately nurture, raise, and train her child, hopefully with the involvement of the child's father. Each culture has its values and practices...Congress needs to just Honor the fathers and mothers without which the next generation is never begat. My major concern is the propensity of the health care insurance industry's executives attempts to profit from the very large variety of health care services being delivered by the medical care industry including the prescription drug industry, durable medical equipment industry, and health & hospital systems such as the 'Health & Hospital Systems, County of Santa Clara', CA. Health care legislation deals with several inter-related health care enterprises which produce 20%

of this nation's gross domestic product (GDP). Government properly has some responsibility for the delivery of health care services (which include mental health and behavioral health care services) and native medical practices related to different cultures (witch doctors; curanderas, etc.). Over the years, Americans have properly supported the National Institutes of Health; National Science Foundation, Communicable Disease Center, and U.S. Public Health Services. Much research has resulted in the conquest of disease... through vaccines, prosthetic development, and many basic research programs. Much of that knowledge has been exploitively monetized by firms which cherry picked portions of new knowledge produced by basic research funded with research grants using federal tax funds. I want to share one observation here: Despite all of medical knowledge and the use of that knowledge which has been growing through medical research being funded by this nation, I observe that the death rate of humans remains at 100%. Each of us has a life span provided by Divine Providence. Medical, biological, and public health knowledge...through their application, has resulted in the extension of life spans. In 1900 the life span of men was 49 years. Today, men and women live beyond the 70's. Women always will live longer than men, because the female of the species is essential to the reproductive survival of

each and any species. Extension of life span is not enough. The proper application of medical knowledge and its applied technology is to minimize pain and suffering...that is all. Therefore, I hope those elected U.S. Congressional members deal with the appropriate allocation of resources to continue the efforts essential for this nation to continue to have a very healthy and capable population including its training and education. It is the health of this nation's work force which enables America to be a great nation. Any attempt to earn returns on investments made off health care services via profits 'skimmed off' by the health care insurance industry will only add profits to the cost thereof. It may be immoral, unethical and inappropriate to try to make the health care services industry profitable via its competitive health insurances industry. Early prevention and intervention invariably lowers the expenses incurred. Preventive care knowledge permits early intervention. Therefore, let's craft legislation which favors single pay sources administered by local government agencies in each community. Making profits from therapies which reduce human pain and suffering is totally inappropriate. In acute health care services, NO COMPETITIVE PRICING MARKET SYSTEM EXISTS. So let's ensure that Prevention of Trumpcare is our intention'.

EL LARGO CAMINO DEL VETO MIGRATORIO Por José López Zamorano La Red Hispana La Corte Suprema de Justicia decidió analizar la decisión del presidente Donald Trump de suspender por 90 días el ingreso de los viajeros procedentes de 6 países de mayoría musulmana, así como de 120 días en el caso de solicitantes de refugio político, luego de que la orden ejecutiva presidencial había sido congelada por dos cortes de apelaciones. En tanto se realiza la audiencia, el máximo tribunal estadounidense permitió que el Departamento de Seguridad Interna (DHS) ponga en vigor las disposiciones de la orden migratoria del presidente, pero sólo para aquellas personas que carezcan de una relación “de buena fe con una persona o entidad

en los Estados Unidos”. De inmediato, el presidente Trump consideró que la decisión unánime de la Corte Suprema es una clara victoria para la seguridad nacional de Estados Unidos, pues aseguró como líder del país no puede permitir el ingreso de personas que busquen hacer daño al país. Antes de la intervención de la Suprema Corte, dos cortes de apelaciones habían fallado en contra de la administración Trump. Su fallo, uno de los primeros casos mayores donde interviene el nuevo magistrado Neil Gorsuch, debe responder una pregunta clave para el futuro del país. ¿Goza un presidente de Estados Unidos de facultades ilimitadas para establecer políticas migratorias bajo el argumento de la seguridad nacional?

La defensa del Departamento de Justicia sugiere que la posición de la administración Trump es que las decisiones del presidente no están sujetas a revisión judicial cuando se trata de la protección de la integridad del país y de la seguridad de sus residentes. Hasta el momento las dos cortes previas han determinado que el sistema de pesos y contrapesos que idearon los Padres Fundadores se aplica también al ámbito migratorio y que deben ser consideradas no sólo las acciones del ejecutivo sino su intencionalidad y motivos. El presidente Trump ha escrito en las redes sociales que se trata de una “prohibición de viajes” y algunos de sus asesores como el ex alcalde de Nueva York Rudolf Giuliani han revelado que se trata de una versión legal del “veto

musulmán” que el presidente prometió en su campaña presidencial. El máximo tribunal deberá decidir si el contenido de la versión revisada de la orden ejecutiva del presidente respeta el marco constitucional o si las facultades del presidente no requieren de revisión judicial. Por lo pronto, el DHS ha dejado en claro que la implementación de la orden migratoria será hecha de manera profesional y con directrices claras y del conocimiento público. Se trata de una norma de conducta que se debe aplicar a todos los casos de migración, haya o no un fallo de la Corte Suprema. Para más información visita www. laredhispana.org.

JUNE 30 - JULY 6, 2017

COUNTY BOARD OF EDUCATION HONORS OPPORTUNITY YOUTH ACADEMY STUDENTS SCCOE SAN JOSE, CA – On June 21, the Santa Clara County Board of Education honored three students from the Opportunity Youth Academy (OYA). At the recognition, Trustee Rosemary Kamei said, “This is so exciting! When the Opportunity Youth program started, every board member knew that it was going to be wonderful and that it was going to do some really positive things for students.” Kenith Cardenas, was honored as the Student of the Year. “When I was at my other high school, I was not perfect,” said Cardenas. “One of the teachers who was tired of my ways said 'since you’re 18, you don’t have to be here at school,' and that had me feeling that he was giving up on me and I had no future.” Opportunity Youth Academy gave Kenith a second chance, “at OYA, and high school in general, students are often sidetracked by circumstances that get in the way of their studies, and these circumstances often act as roadblocks to their success. Kenith, however, has not allowed such circumstances to impede his goal.  Even during very difficult situations, Kenith bounces back and stays committed,” said his instructor Kevin Jacks. Kenith’s commitment and perseverance merited his walk across the stage at the OYA graduation on June 7. “Here I am now, I got my diploma, and I got the Student of the Year award, I will always remember this day,” said

Cardenas. Also honored that evening were Interns of the Year, Lizbeth Galeana and Itzel Enriquez, two OYA students who recently completed their internships with the Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE). Twenty interns were chosen to work in departments across the SCCOE and were mentored by ten county office staff members. “The interns worked in Human Resources, Technology Services, Communications, Special Education classrooms, and Facilities & Maintenance. OYA interns were trained by Teen Force, processed by HR and worked 20 hours a week at their assignment while maintaining their school work and progress toward graduation,” said County Superintendent of Schools, Jon R. Gundry. “Often the missing link between an employers’ wish list and a student, is a track record in a variety of workplace experiences. These internships provide valuable opportunities for our students to gain work experience, empowers and encourages them to become more engaged and well-prepared to enter the workforce, and affords opportunities for our staff to serve as mentors and positive role models,” said Lisa Ketchum, Manager Work Force Services in the SCCOE. “The program was created through cross-department collaboration between Human Resources, Talent Management, and Opportunity Youth Academy, and was funded through a one-time grant from Santa Clara County,” said Trustee Grace Mah.

BBB’S TOP SCAMS OF 2017 (SO FAR) offer more protections than debit cards or money transfers. Many “can you hear me?” scam calls were about vacation packages and cruises. This might account for the huge jump in travel and vacation scam reports travel and vacation scams didn’t even make the top ten scam list in 2016! To learn more, visit bbb.org/travelscam.

Rebecca Harpster Golden Gate Better Business Bureau The best way to avoid a scam? To know about it! That’s why it’s so important to stay on top of current scams. Unfortunately, scammers are innovative and sophisticated – they’re always coming up with new schemes and tactics to trick people out of their money and personal information. New scams are always popping up, and old ones that you might already be aware of may become less common over time. Case in point: the IRS scam call. The tax collection scam was the BBB’s #1 scam in both 2015 and 2016. In 2016, tax scams accounted for 25% of reports to BBB Scam Tracker, despite a large drop in reports following a September police raid on a call center in India. However, things are now looking a little different. According to 2017 BBB Scam Tracker reports from January to mid-June, the tax collection scam is only the fifth most common scam, accounting for only around five percent of reports. The rest of BBB’s top scams of 2017 so far might surprise you: 1) Phishing scams. So far in 2017, consumers have reported over 9,500 phishing scams to BBB Scam Tracker, accounting for 34% of reports. • How to avoid them: In a phishing scam, you’re contacted out of blue over phone, email or text by a friend, colleague or business. The email either contains a link to “verify your account”, has an attachment that you’re urged to open or wants you to share personal information. Don’t open unexpected attachments or share personal or log-in info – contact the business or person directly to verify the email’s authenticity first. Phishing scams were the tenth most reported scam in 2016. The increase in reports may be due to the “can you hear me?” scam, which surged in the beginning of 2017. Learn more about the “can you hear me?” scam at bbb.org/ canyouhearme, and about phishing scams at bbb.org/phishingscam. 2) Travel and vacation scams. These scams account for around eight percent of reports to BBB Scam Tracker so far in 2017; around 2,200 have been reported. • How to avoid them: Travel and vacation scams include fake vacation rentals and timeshare resale cons. When traveling, remember that if something seems too good to be true, it probably is. Always do your research and use a credit card because they

3) Online purchase scams. Consumers across North America have reported around 2,100 online purchase scams to BBB Scam Tracker so far in 2017. They were the 4th most reported scam in 2016 with 1,900 reports – more have been reported so far in 2017 than were in all of 2016! • How to avoid them: In an online purchase scam, you purchase an item from an unfamiliar website but the item never arrives. It’s impossible to get in touch with customer service or receive a refund. Maybe you saw an ad for the site on social media so you thought it was trustworthy, or the prices were astronomically low so you couldn’t pass it up. Either way, you’re out of your money! Always do your research on bbb.org before shopping on a new website, and use a credit card. Check out bbb.org/webpurchasescam to learn more about online purchase scams. 4) Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prize scams. Reports of these scams account for six percent of total reports to BBB Scam Tracker so far in 2017. Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prize scams were the third most reported scam in 2016 and accounted for seven percent of reports, so they may be becoming less common. • How to avoid them: You receive a call, email, letter or text saying that you won a big contest that you never actually entered. To claim your prize, you just need to wire money for taxes or fees. Unfortunately, your winnings never come through. You’ll never have to pay upfront to claim a free prize, and be wary if you’re ever asked to wire money. Learn more at bbb.org/prizescam. 5) Tax collection scams. More than 1,300 tax collection scams have been reported to BBB Scam Tracker so far in 2017, accounting for around five percent of reports. This is in stark contrast to 2016, where more than 7,500 were reported. • How to avoid them: In a tax collection scam, you usually receive a call from someone claiming to be with the IRS. They say you owe money and if you don’t pay immediately – through a gift card, prepaid debit card, or money transfer – someone will come arrest you. Scammers are trying to frighten you, but don’t believe them! Just hang up. Learn more about tax collection scams at bbb.org/ taxscam. If you encounter a scam, make sure to report it to BBB Scam Tracker at bbb.org/ scamtracker to help warn others. You can also visit BBB Scam Tracker to see what scams are happening near you.

LAS ESTAFAS MÁS COMUNES DE 2017 (HASTA AHORA) Rebecca Harpster Golden Gate Better Business Bureau

La mejor manera de evitar una estafa es saber que existe. Por eso es tan importante saber acerca de estafas comunes. Lamentablemente, los estafadores son innovadores y sofisticados – siempre están diseñando nuevos esquemas y tácticas para engañar a la gente y robar su dinero e información personal. Estafas nuevas están apareciendo siempre, y estafas viejas se hacen menos comunes con el tiempo. Un ejemplo: la estafa de llamada de IRS. La estafa de la recaudación de impuestos fue la estafa más común en 2015 y 2016, de acuerdo con BBB. En 2016, las estafas de impuestos representaron 25% de los informes al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB, a pesar de una gran caída en los informes después del cierre en septiembre de un centro de llamadas en India. Sin embargo, de acuerdo con informes al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB de enero a mediados de junio de 2017, la estafa de impuestos es sólo la quinta estafa más común, representando alrededor del 5% de los informes. El resto de las estafas más comunes de 2017 hasta ahora podrían sorprenderte. Siga leyendo para aprender más:

1) Estafas de phishing. Hasta ahora en 2017, consumidores han reportado más de 9.500 estafas de phishing al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB, representando 34% de los informes. • Cómo evitarlos: En una estafa de phishing, recibirá un correo electrónico, un texto o una llamada inesperada de un amigo, colega o empresa. El correo electrónico contiene un vínculo para “verificar su cuenta”, tiene un archivo adjunto que se le solicita que abre o quiere que usted comparte información personal. No debe abrir archivos adjuntos inesperados ni compartir información personal o de inicio de sesión; primero póngase en contacto directamente con la empresa o persona para verificar la autenticidad del correo electrónico. Las estafas de phishing fueron la fraude #10 más común en 2016. El aumento en los reportes puede deberse a la estafa de “¿me oyes?”, que surgió a principios de 2017.

2) Estafas de viajes y vacaciones. Estas estafas representan alrededor del 8% de los informes al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB hasta ahora en 2017; alrededor de 2.200 han sido reportados. • Cómo evitarlos: Estafas de viajes y vacaciones incluyen alquileres de vacaciones falsos y fraudes de la reventa de multipropiedades. Cuando viajando, recuerde que si algo parece demasiado bueno para ser verdad, probablemente lo sea. Siempre haga su investigación y utilice una tarjeta de crédito porque ofrecen más protecciones que las tarjetas de débito o las transferencias de dinero. Muchas estafas de “¿me oyes?” fueron sobre vacaciones y cruceros. Esto podría

explicar el gran salto en los estafas de viajes y vacaciones – no fueron en la lista de BBB de los diez estafas más comunes de 2016.

3) Estafas de compras en línea. Los consumidores han reportado alrededor de 2.100 estafas de compras en línea al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB hasta ahora en 2017. Fueron la estafa cuarta más reportada en 2016 con 1.900 informes - ¡hay más informes hasta ahora en 2017 que en el total de 2016! • Cómo evitarlos: En una estafa de compras en línea, usted compra un artículo de un sitio web desconocido y el artículo nunca llega. Es imposible contactar el servicio al cliente o recibir un reembolso. Tal vez usted vio un anuncio para el sitio en las redes sociales entonces pensaba que era digno de confianza, o los precios eran astronómicamente bajos y usted no pudo resistir. De cualquier manera, usted está fuera de su dinero. Siempre haga su investigación en bbb.org antes de hacer compras en un sitio web desconocido, y use una tarjeta de crédito.

4) Estafas de loterías y premios. Informes de estas estafas representan 6% de todas las informes al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB hasta ahora en 2017. En 2016, las estafas de loterías y premios fueron la tercera estafa más reportada y representaron 7% de los informes. • Cómo evitarlos: Usted recibe una llamada, correo electrónico, carta o texto diciendo que ha ganado un gran premio que no suena familiar. Para reclamar su premio, sólo tiene que enviar dinero por impuestos o cargos. Desafortunadamente, sus ganancias nunca llegan. Nunca tendrás que pagar por adelantado para reclamar un premio gratis, y tenga cuidado enviar dinero.

5) Estafas de recaudación de impuestos. Más de 1.300 estafas de recaudación de impuestos se han reportado al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB hasta ahora en 2017, representando alrededor del 5% de los informes. Esto está en contraste con 2016, donde más de 7.500 fueron reportados. • Cómo evitarlos: En una estafa de recaudación de impuestos, recibe una llamada de alguien que dice estar con el IRS. Ellos dicen que usted debe dinero y si no paga inmediatamente – a través de una tarjeta de regalo, tarjeta de débito prepagada, o transferencia de dinero – alguien vendrá para arrestarse. Los estafadores están tratando de asustarse, pero no debe creerlos. ¡Simplemente cuelga el teléfono! Si usted encuentra una estafa, asegúrese de reportarlo al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB en bbb.org/scamtracker para ayudar a otros. También puede visitar al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB para ver qué estafas están sucediendo cerca de usted. Puede ponerse en contacto con su BBB a través de info@bbbemail.org o (510) 8442000, o en goldengate.bbb.org

EL ACCESO A CUIDADOS DE SALUD MENTAL PODRÍA ESTAR TAN CERCA COMO UNA CONSULTA VIRTUAL

Photo Credit: BPT

BPT Cada día, los trastornos de salud mental ejercen un gran impacto en miles de personas, incluyendo a muchos de nuestros amigos, vecinos y compañeros de trabajo. Todo el que lea este artículo conoce a alguien afectado por las enfermedades mentales, y está consciente de los estragos que las mismas hacen a escala individual, familiar y comunitaria. Los retos de salud mental no discriminan, y afectan a personas de todas las procedencias, independientemente de edad, género, origen étnico y nivel socioeconómico. Si bien cada año el estrés, la ansiedad, la depresión y otros trastornos mentales afectan aproximadamente a 43 millones de adultos en este país, la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS) reporta que solo una de cada cuatro personas a las que se les diagnostica un trastorno busca tratamiento. Lamentablemente, y por muchas razones, existen obstáculos que impiden a las personas lograr el acceso a la atención de salud mental que podrían necesitar. Considere las estadísticas siguientes: en los Estados Unidos, 4,000 localidades cuentan con un solo psiquiatra por cada 30,000 personas o más; el tiempo de espera promedio para realizar una visita a un psiquiatra es de 25 días; y el temor al estigma (opinión negativa de los demás) es el cuarto obstáculo más considerado a la hora de buscar ayuda. La buena noticia es que quienes buscan ayuda profesional con mayor rapidez pueden tener mayor tendencia a seguir tratamiento y lograr mejores resultados. Con el tratamiento y apoyo adecuados, los pacientes se pueden recuperar de los trastornos mentales, y llevar adelante vidas más sanas e independientes como

miembros valiosos de sus comunidades. En ocasiones todo lo que hace falta es un ligero impulso de un ser querido o amigo para ayudar a alguien a dar el primer paso en su camino a la recuperación. Para algunos, el primer paso mejor puede ser una consulta virtual con un proveedor de cuidados de salud mental, desde su dispositivo móvil o computadora. En muchos casos, el acceso a la atención virtual está disponible como parte de los beneficios de su seguro médico. La atención virtual puede reducir el tiempo de espera por una cita, adaptarse a los horarios laborales y personales, y eliminar el tiempo y gastos de desplazamiento. Una cita realizada en el entorno seguro y confortable del hogar puede reducir el temor al estigma. Además, varios estudios revelan que los resultados de una consulta virtual con un proveedor de cuidados de salud mental, son similares a sesiones personales para múltiples trastornos. Concientizar a las personas y reducir las opiniones negativas con respecto a los problemas de salud mental son factores vitales para respaldar el bienestar en nuestras comunidades. En la actualidad, podemos tener acceso a tratamientos efectivos y probados en una amplia gama de formatos, como el uso de la tecnología de llamadas en video. De nosotros depende tomar la iniciativa y estimular a amigos, vecinos y familiares necesitados a buscar acceso a estos recursos disponibles. Para obtener más información y acceso a enlaces para recursos de ayuda de recuperación en su localidad, visite el sitio web www.optum.com/recovery. Para más detalles acerca de los beneficios de cuidados de salud disponibles, llame al número telefónico impreso en el reverso de la tarjeta de identificación de su plan de salud.

5 maneras de cómo los inmigrantes pueden proteger sus derechos

A través del estado de California, las familias inmigrantes están tomando medidas para proteger sus derechos. Se mantienen informados, buscan ayuda de proveedores de servicios legales de confianza, aprenden cuales otras opciones de alivios migratorios existen para ellos. A pesar de los recientes cambios en la política de inmigración, las comunidades inmigrantes en California no ceden ante el temor. Aquí están cinco maneras de asegurarse de que sus derechos y los de su familia están protegidos: • 1. Conozca sus derechos. Todos los que están en los Estados Unidos tienen ciertos derechos según la Constitución de EE.UU., independientemente de su estatus migratorio. Estos incluyen; el derecho a permanecer en silencio, el derecho a no abrir la puerta a agentes si no tienen una orden de cateo firmada por un Juez de Inmigración, el derecho a hablar con un abogado y hacer una llamada telefónica, y a no firmar nada antes de hablar con un abogado. • 2. Haga un plan. Todas las familias deben tener un plan en caso de una emergencia. Haga un plan de quién cuidaría de sus hijos o de sus familiares ancianos en el caso de que usted no pueda hacerlo, y quién se haría cargo de sus finanzas. Hable con sus hijos acerca de este plan. El plan debe incluir números de emergencia, una lista de información de contactos importantes, y un archivo con documentos importantes. Contacte con su consulado acerca de registrar el nacimiento de sus hijos si nacieron en los Estados Unidos. Informe a la escuela de quién tiene permiso de recoger a sus hijos, y mantenga registrada la información médica y de contacto en caso de emergencias para que su familia pueda tener acceso a ella. Tenga consigo y a la mano el número de un abogado de inmigración calificado. • 3. Averigüe sobre sus opciones. Obtenga una consulta de inmigración con un abogado especializado en inmigración. Esto le ayudará a entender sus opciones legales y ver si puede ser elegible para recibir un beneficio de inmigración más permanente. Para evitar proveedores de servicios fraudulentos, acuda a una organización comunitaria

de confianza, asegúrese de confirmar las credenciales del abogado y pida un contrato por escrito y un recibo por cualquier pago que haga. (¡Recuerde que los notarios no son abogados y no están certificados para darle consejos legales!) • 4. Tome medidas. No importa cuál sea su estatus migratorio, es probable que haya algo que pueda hacer. Los inmigrantes indocumentados pueden averiguar si califican para ciertos alivios migratorios. (Algunas personas ya cumplen los requisitos para una visa y no lo saben.) Las personas elegibles que tienen la tarjeta de residencia permanente (la tarjeta verde) pueden solicitar la ciudadanía. Aquellos que tengan una convicción criminal pueden averiguar si hay manera de borrar esta convicción de su record. Cualquier cosa que esté considerando en solicitar, simplemente cerciórese de hablar con un proveedor de servicios legales de confianza. • 5. Manténgase en contacto. Conéctese con su comunidad, involúcrese y manténgase informado. Hay organizaciones sin fines de lucro comunitarias locales que trabajan para asegurarse que usted tenga la información y ayuda legal que necesita. Vaya visítelos, o llámeles por teléfono para averiguar de lo que usted podría calificar. Para saber cuáles son sus opciones de inmigración y obtener más información sobre sus derechos, visite:

Center for Employment Training 701 Vine Street, San Jose, CA 95110 408-534-5360 Pangea Legal Services 538A Valley Way, Building 3, Milpitas, CA 95035 415-254-0475 welcome@pangealegal.org.

What you need to know about juice and serving size BPT

My kids like to drink juice, but I don’t know how much to serve them. Do you have any suggestions? Like the whole fruit it is squeezed from, 100 percent juice is both delicious and nutritious. It is filled with important vitamins and minerals like potassium, folate and vitamin C, which make it a great beverage to serve your children. A serving of 100 percent juice is also a good option to help children meet their daily fruit serving recommendations.

HOW MUCH JUICE SHOULD KIDS DRINK? Selecting beverages for your children can be tricky. What should they be drinking and how much should they drink? Dr. Lisa Thornton, pediatrician and mother, breaks down new juice guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and answers questions about 100 percent juice in the diet.

RECIPE/HOME

In regards to portion size, follow the guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). Children ages 1-3 can have up to 4 ounces of juice a day, kids ages 4-6 can drink up to 6 ounces a day and children 7 and older can have up to 8 ounces per day. These new guidelines were put into place to help parents manage their children’s intake. Should I be worried about juice and weight gain? Balance is the key to good health for people of all ages, from age 1 to 100. Guidelines and recommendations are put into place by experts at the American Academy of Pediatrics and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to help guide you to make the best decisions about the foods and beverages you serve to your family.

Scientific studies that analyzed the juice consumption of children and adults found that when juice is consumed in appropriate amounts, there is no association between drinking juice and obesity. If you are worried about the impact of individual foods on your child’s weight, consult with a professional, such as a nutritionist or pediatrician. Does drinking juice impact fruit consumption? I’m concerned that if I serve my children juice, they will be less likely to eat fruit. Actually, nutrition research shows just the opposite. Children who drink juice tend to have overall better quality diets than those who do not drink juice. This means they eat more whole fruit, less saturated fats and have less added sugar in their diet. Drinking juice shouldn’t replace eating whole fruit in the diet; it should complement it. According to the U.S. Dietary Guidelines, 100 percent juice is part of the fruit group, which consists of all forms of fruit — fresh, frozen, canned, dried and 100 percent juice. More than 75 percent of Americans do not eat the recommended amount of fruit; one serving of fruit juice can help to supplement your family’s intake. Making decisions about what to feed your family shouldn’t be stressful or difficult. Consult with your physician, pediatrician or nutritionist if you are confused about what foods and beverages you should be serving your loved ones.

CALIF. RANKS 37TH IN NATION FOR CHILD WELL-BEING

A new report shows one in four California children lives in poverty, although the state has made huge gains in getting more kids insured. Photo Credit: Latino Outdoors

Suzanne Potter California News Service LOS ANGELES - California has made major strides in getting kids insured, but still ranks only 37th in the nation for overall child well-being due to persistent pockets of poverty, according to the latest KIDS COUNT Data Book, out today from the Annie E. Casey Foundation. Researchers found across the country, unemployment is low - at 4.5 percent - and 95 percent of children now have health insurance, mostly through Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act. But Kelly Hardy, the senior managing director for Children Now, says the huge cuts proposed in the GOP health-care reform could erase a big part of that progress. "I could not be more concerned about what's going on in D.C. related to health care," she says. "And there would be direct and devastating impactd for children's health in California. The big cuts to Medicaid are what would be the biggest problem." Nearly 55 percent of California's children are enrolled in Medi-Cal, the state Medicaid program. The report ranks California 9th in children's health and

was the most improved state in getting kids insured. For that, Kelly credits passage of the "Healthcare for All" law, which extended Medi-Cal benefits to undocumented children. The California budget does set aside money for early childhood education, but Kelly says she's hoping for more in the ongoing Budget Conference Committee negotiations. The state ranks 38th in education investment and has 17,000 fewer kids in subsidized childcare compared to 10 years ago. The Casey Foundation's Laura Speer, associate director for Policy Reform and Advocacy, urges lawmakers to make use of this data. "We've been tracking these measures for more than 25 years because we believe in the importance of really getting a clear, unbiased measure of child well-being over time," Speer explains. "We want folks to use this information to make good decisions so that we can maintain the gains that we've been able to achieve." The report also found that parts of California are still struggling to recover from the recession, ranking 46th in economic well-being for kids. Almost two million, or one in four California children, lives in poverty.

CAMINAR’S LGBTQ PROGRAMS IN SANTA CLARA COUNTY REPORT INCREASED DEMAND AND USAGE

Pride Month Report to the Community Shows Youth and Adult Programs Have Grown in Response to LGBTQ Community Needs and Political Climate Family & Children Services of Silicon Valley (FCS) San Jose, CA – In its eighth year, the LGBTQ Youth Space has seen a 17 percent year-over-year increase in visits to the drop-in center. Founded in 2009, the Youth Space offers free peer support groups, professional counseling, creative expression programming, leadership development opportunities and assistance understanding rights and accessing local services, by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning (LGBTQ) youth and young adults in Santa Clara County. In addition, the LGBTQ Wellness program is projecting a 10 percent increase in program usage by the end of June. Both programs are operated by Family & Children Services of Silicon Valley, a division of the nonprofit organization Caminar. “This has been a very challenging year for LGBTQ communities, prompting more youth and adults to reach out for culturally relevant support,” says Cassie Blume, director of LGBTQ programs at Family & Children Services of Silicon Valley. “At our LGBTQ Youth Space and LGBTQ Wellness programs, we have worked to provide opportunities for people who are feeling vulnerable to regain their feelings of power. After the election, for example, we received many calls and visits from people fearing a rise in intolerance and policies that intend to erase and persecute our communities. We continue to respond and do our best to provide information, resources and advocacy alongside the communities we serve and represent.” The LGBTQ Youth Space serves youth and young adults from 13 to 25 years old living throughout the county. From July 1, 2016, through May 31, 2017, the program’s drop-in center on South First Street in San Jose had 4,526 visits. The outreach team reached an additional 7,667 people through community-based education activities, such as speakers bureau presentations. The LGBTQ Wellness program, the only program of its kind in the county, completed its second year of service this spring. By providing culturally relevant outreach and education, advocacy, and peer support, the program overcomes stigma associated with behavioral health conditions and increases community awareness of behavioral health topics and resources. Over the last 11 months, the

LGBTQ Wellness program provided 175 peer support contacts and reached 762 individuals through outreach activities. In addition to delivering ongoing direct services, the LGBTQ programs’ advocacy and leadership development accomplishments over the last 11 months included: Co-planning and speaking at both the Rally for Trans Youth at San Jose City Hall, called in response to the federal government’s decision to rescind guidance on Title IX protections for transgender students, and San Jose’s Equality March. Co-hosting the inaugural South Bay Youth Pride Festival with the youth organizing committee. The festival, held on May 13 in San Jose, convened more than 200 county youth. Planning will begin soon for the 2018 event. Being featured by the San Jose Sharks as part of the inaugural “Hockey Is for Everyone” awareness night on March 2. Representing LGBTQ communities on key community task forces, such as the CDC’s Epi-Aid Coordinating Committee (the investigation into youth suicides in the county), Intimate Partner Violence Blue Ribbon Task Force, and the Disproportionality Committee of the Child Abuse Council. With grants from the Horizons Foundation and Farrington Historical Foundation, the LGBTQ Youth Space expanded programming this year for youth and young adults to explore diverse forms of creative self-expression, including zine-making, music and salsa and vogue dancing. In May, youth presented a performance night featuring a drag show, music and spoken word. Planning is underway for the fall show. In January, Family & Children Services of Silicon Valley became a division of Caminar, a nonprofit organization headquartered in San Mateo that has been serving the San Francisco Bay Area since 1964. The combined organization has 122 years of experience and annually reaches more than 11,000 people in the Bay Area with counseling, prevention, and support services.

STUDENT CHANGES PEOPLE’S LIVES WITH ELECTRICITY

placing it in a foreign country, the entire company of Iluméxico is all Mexicans, all super young, so I liked that, people have great ideas and it was just about helping achieve those great ideas.” Miranda and her research partner were able to be part of Iluméxico through the Global Social Benefit Fellowship, a program at SCU’s Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship. Which is a nine-month research program where Miranda and her partner conducted interviews for their research about Iluméxico’s customer satisfaction and comparison to the government electricity program.

Estephany Haro El Observador Isabel Miranda just graduated from Santa Clara University and at her short age, she has already made a difference in people’s lives by helping them have access to the most basic utility, electricity. Miranda, along with another SCU student traveled to Chilan-Balan, a small village in Campeche, Mexico to help install solar lights with social enterprise Iluméxico. “It was very exciting seeing little kids who got light bulbs in their house, I remember this lady

who lived 70 years without light and suddenly we installed the light bulb and that was going to change her world somehow,” says Miranda. Miranda was born in Mexico City but moved to California when she was 5-years-old, her dad is a professor and him getting a teaching position in California brought them to Silicon Valley. However, even though she has been going back to Mexico every year, she was interested in going back the last time with a different perspective. “I was interested in the fellowship just because I was born in Mexico so I wanted sort of an opportunity to go back,” Miranda said. “It wasn’t about someone here creating an idea and just

“I was paired with social enterprise Iluméxico and their mission is to bring solar energy to offgrid rural communities throughout the country,” Miranda said.

just very humbling, how someone who does not have a lot to offer is here offering me their home.” Chilan-Balan is one of the many rural towns in Mexico that still don’t count with basic utilities such as electricity, some small villages still rely on burning diesel. However, Miranda’s contribution with Iluméxico was “also very impactful in terms of appreciating the opportunities that I had growing up here and being able to give back with the opportunities and education that I received,” Miranda said. Miranda will continue her education at San Francisco University where she will be pursuing her Master’s degree, however, she hopes to do more social work in the future to help underdeveloped communities, like Chilan-Balan.

Iluméxico works with communities that still don’t have access to electricity due to their location as the electrical lines from the government don’t reach, said Miranda who took one class to prepare before traveling to Mexico to conduct her research. However, her experience working with Iluméxico went beyond the intended one of helping bring light to Chilan-balan. “It was a very humbling experience and also sort of very shocking just because where we would stay overnight there was light obviously but it was a still very rural place and you would drive for four hours and get to this tiny little huts of one bedroom for families of like five people,” Miranda said. “They’re very welcoming people and that was

what younger people pay, compared to the current limit of three times. And it lifts a ban on charging much higher premiums to people with preexisting conditions. Supporters of the BCRA say it will reduce the federal deficit and give people access to lowercost plans that cover fewer health benefits. The Congressional Budget Office said the House version of the healthcare overhaul would cause 23 million Americans to lose their insurance over the next 10 years - its analysis of the new bill is expected on Monday. The Senate version of healthcare reform bill caps Medicaid spending, which would have dire health and financial consequences for millions in California. Photo Credit: cllarita/Morguefile

CA GROUPS: SENATE HEALTH BILL "MORE DRACONIAN" THAN HOUSE VERSION Suzanne Potter California News Service

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Health advocates warn the Senate GOP bill to repeal and replace Obamacare would cause millions of Californians to lose their healthcare - by phasing out the Medicaid expansion and then capping the program altogether. The Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) lifts the government mandate for people to have insurance, and lets states allow insurance policies that exclude services like maternity

and mental-health care. Anthony Wright, executive director of the nonprofit group Health Access California, says the bill would harm many different groups. "It still eliminates the Medicaid expansion that 4 million Californians depend on," he says. "But it also has a harsher cap on the entire program, which 14 million Californians depend on - including a third of the state, half of all children, and two-thirds of all nursinghome residents." The Senate bill also lets insurance companies charge Americans ages 50 to 64 five times

decrease access to healthcare on a similar scale. "From just a pure numbers point of view, this is an over $800 billion cut to Medicaid to fund a $900 billion tax cut for health insurers, drug companies and the wealthy," he adds. The BCRA faces an uphill battle, though, as multiple Republican Senators have already announced their opposition. At this point, the bill is set for a vote next Thursday. If it passes the Senate, House leaders have said they want to vote on it before the July 4 recess, when lawmakers go back to their districts.

WHAT’S THE LATEST IN GREENER BOOZE? may be the last to the party but is rallying hard to catch up. Mexico’s Tequila Ocho, for instance, lets some of the agave plants on its Puerta del Aire

Roddy Scheer & Doug Moss EarthTalk

Perhaps no other industry has responded to the greening of consumer preferences quite like beverage producers. From wine to beer to spirits, greener choices made from local and organic ingredients and packaged in lighterweight containers abound. Indeed, getting a buzz on has never felt so good. Brewers’ great contribution to the greening of the industry has been a renewed focus on localization. Back in the 1980s, there were less than 100 breweries across the U.S., most of them part of big multi-national corporations. But today Americans have upwards of 5,000 breweries at their beck and call, many which source ingredients from nearby farms and save money and greenhouse gas pollution by not shipping their products out of their local region. Besides local sourcing and distribution, hundreds of brewers across the country are also going green by choosing organic barley and hops. Some labels to look for in sustainable beer include Peak Organic and Brooklyn Brewery, both based out of New York, and Colorado-based New Belgium. For its part, the wine industry has made great strides in recent years by upping its production of organic wines, too. Frey Vineyards, Grgich

ranch reach full flower—a process that can take up to eight years and makes the plants no longer able to produce tequila—for the sake of local endangered bat populations that depend on healthy, flowering agave plants to thrive.

Hills Estate, Porter Creek, Cain, Ernest Vineyards and Pacific Rim are just a few of the U.S. based winemakers embracing organically grown grapes. Winemakers are also showing green leadership through product packaging, with many eschewing glass bottles in favor of cardboard boxes or plastic-reinforced Tetra Paks. Not only does the process of creating traditional wine bottles emit large amounts of greenhouse gases, the weight of the glass also adds markedly to transportation emissions—nearly half of the products’ weight is in the bottles

themselves. Wine blogger Tyler Colman of DrVino.com estimates that boxed wine generates about half the greenhouse gas emissions per 750 mL as wine in glass bottles. That said, Tetra Paks aren’t so easy to recycle and thus are more likely to be tossed into landfill-bound trash than their glass counterparts. But aficionados skeptical of wine in a box might want to taste test French Rabbit’s Pinot Noir, created from organic ingredients and looking svelte in its Tetra Pak. When it comes to sustainability, hard liquor

Meanwhile, California’s Square One not only uses organic grains in its vodka but sources a significant amount of the electricity needed in its production facilities from a local wind farm. Kentucky-based Maker’s Mark uses locally sourced grains in its famous bourbon and converts production waste into energy to power its distillery. And Puerto Rico’s DonQ rum composts its waste and uses run-off to irrigate its fields while powering its still with excess steam from its treatment plant.

WHAT ARE SOME WAYS PEOPLE ARE USING GAMES TO HELP REDUCE THEIR CARBON FOOTPRINTS?

Calif. Declares Main Ingredient in Roundup a Carcinogen Suzanne Potter California News Service SACRAMENTO, Calif. - The main ingredient in Roundup, the most commonly used weed killer in the world, has been declared a carcinogen by the state of California. The state Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment on Monday said glyphosate will be added to the state's list of cancer-causing chemicals on July 7. The move comes after a 2015 ruling by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, part of the World Health Organization, that it is "probably carcinogenic."

Roddy Scheer & Doug Moss EarthTalk Environmental advocates and organizations are increasingly employing gamification— defined by Merriam-Webster as “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something...so as to encourage participation”—to get people to learn about environmental problems and take action to reduce their carbon footprints and overall impact. To wit, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Ecoresearch. net and the DecareboNet research project have partnered on a “game” called Climate Challenge that gets everyday people to pit their predictions about climate change and its effects against the opinions of experts around the world in an effort to see if the “wisdom of the crowd” can come up with answers faster than the experts alone. Players are encouraged to research answers to questions about things like annual Arctic Sea Ice minimum coverage or the monthly average global surface temperature before submitting their answers. According to Climate Challenge creators, it’s not cheating to research to find the best answers; indeed, it’s the goal. Players can come back every month for new questions, and see how they are doing compared to experts, friends, and even the collective “crowd”—and can win prizes by guessing closest to the actual value for a given question each month. Another game focused on educating people about climate change is EduCycle, from Finnish game designer Neste. The free augmented reality (AR) app encourages players to design a city’s transportation,

buildings and farms while cutting greenhouse gas emissions to levels specified under the 2015 Paris climate accord. “By simulating the carbon cycle in real life,” Neste maintains, “the game teaches kids and adults about the effects of global warming.” Save Ohno is a creative take on gamification for the sake of the climate, courtesy of concerned college student Dylan Husted. The main character in the free online game is Ohno, who represents the player’s great granddaughter and is impacted by climate change in the future thanks to our actions and behaviors today. On the game’s SaveOhno.org website, players can see Ohno’s town get destroyed by extreme weather. But when players take positive action in the real world, the conditions in Ohno’s online (future) town improve accordingly.

Bill Allayaud, California director of government affairs for the nonprofit Environmental Working Group in California, said Roundup is used in homes, on roadsides and on farms just about everywhere. "Glyphosate is so commonly used, it's showing up in women's breast milk and all over the world in animals," he said. "So, it's high time people be warned about this chemical, and this is a good step towards

letting people know, 'Proceed with caution when you're using Roundup.' " Allayaud advised avoiding Roundup altogether for home use. The maker, Monsanto, tried and failed to block the listing in the courts, arguing that its studies show the weed killer is safe when used as directed. The company is appealing the ruling. California's Proposition 65, passed in 1986, requires that chemicals on the state list of carcinogens carry warning labels either on the product or at the point of sale. Randy Jurado Ertll, executive director of the California Latino Environmental Advocacy Network, praised the move, but said he worries about the health of farmworkers who apply the herbicide and the rural communities upwind of the fields. "It's usually the low-income minority communities, especially working-class Latino communities, that bear the brunt of pesticide contamination," he said. "It's usually poor farmworkers that have to breathe in or use pollutants." It is extremely rare for chemicals to be banned outright, but in the past the state has placed limits on the amount and timing of spraying for chemicals it deems to be dangerous.

UN ACOMPAÑANTE Y TÚ ESTÁN INVITADOS AL PREESTRENO DE

Players can improve Ohno’s world by following tasks suggested within the game, and can also plug in real world campaigns and activism they are involved with to improve Ohno’s town. “An example 'campaign' could be a petition to get your local school to invest in renewables,” says Husted.

EL MIERCOLES 5 DE JULIO 7:30 PM

Meanwhile, World Climate Simulation is a role-playing exercise whereby groups can take part in mock United Nations climate negotiations and learn what it’s like to work with others to craft global environmental policy. The game uses an interactive computer model that allows participants to find out how their proposed policies impact global climate in real-time. All the tools and materials for the World Climate Simulation are available for free and multiple languages are supported.

5 TIPS TO KEEP YOUR HOME SECURE FROM HACKERS

RATINGS ARE YESTERDAY, DATA IS TOMORROW Shelly Palmer

The TV business was once ruled by overnight ratings. Those metrics are becoming less and less meaningful in a world of mobile-first consumers. Online networks such as Netf lix and Amazon don’t want or need third-party ratings. They know exactly what is being consumed, by whom, and when. Delivery and analytics are their core competencies. Additionally, Netf lix and Amazon own their customer billing relationships, and whoever owns the customer usually wins.

Times have changed. It’s no longer enough to protect your physical home, it’s also vital you stay safe from cybercrimes. It has become increasingly easier for criminals to gain access to financial accounts, email and even hack internet-connected devices in the home. The good news is that there are a handful of steps you can take to help defend your home from cyberattacks and lock down access to your personal information. 1. Know your status. Before you can take steps to keep yourself safe from external threats, it’s important to understand your level of vulnerability. The website haveibeenpwned.com is a useful tool that searches more than 190 data breaches to see if your personal information has ever been leaked. If you've been the victim of a data breach, immediately change the password of the vulnerable account along with the passwords of any websites or accounts that use the same credentials. For instance, if the email and password you use for Facebook was breached, and that’s the same login combination you use for your bank, your bank account could be vulnerable to hackers. 2. Invest in a protective router. Much like the front door is the entryway into a home, the Wi-Fi router is the entry point into a home’s digital information. It’s also the first line of defense against external threats. Do your research and invest in a router that prioritizes network security. You should always password protect your Wi-Fi and be sure to change the default username and password that comes preconfigured on the router (often this is listed on the bottom of the box or router). 3. Secure your devices. You don’t need to live in a “smart home” to be vulnerable to external security threats. These days, more and more products connect to the internet, and while that can be useful, it also leaves your home vulnerable to hackers. The first thing you should do when you get an internet-connected device up and running is check for new firmware updates. Most products sitting on shelves of retailers don’t have the latest software loaded, so applying updates is a critical step to ensuring

those devices remain safe. Also be sure you’re not ignoring prompts for software updates and patches in the future. It’s crucial to keep your connected devices up-to-date. 4. Choose strong passwords. You’ve heard it before — make sure you’re using strong passwords. They need to be at least 12 characters in length, and include numbers, symbols, and lowercase and uppercase letters. They shouldn’t include personal information or common words (e.g., "password"). You’ll want to create a unique password for every account, so if a hacker gets one of your passwords in a data breach, they can’t immediately log into your other accounts.

Netf lix’s (very expensive) decision to greenlight House of Cards  was largely data driven. Netf lix knew that the British  House of Cards  had been widely consumed by its customers. Director David Fincher’s  The Social Network  had been a Netf lix hit as well, with an extraordinary engagement level. Netf lix knew that the majority of viewers had watched the film from beginning to end—something a traditional TV ratings service can never really  know.  Netf lix also knew that those who watched the British  House of Cards  consumed Kevin Spacey and David Fincher products. So Netf lix was able to outbid HBO and AMC

with confidence, on a $100 million bid for 26 episodes. The rest is history. The reliance on data is not limited to Over The Top (OTT). Networks and advertisers are working on more data-driven initiatives as well. Turner created a new data collection system called the Competitive Audience Estimation (CAE), which it believes will provide much better audience impression estimates. “CAE will tell us at 3pm tomorrow there will be 200,000 sparkling water drinkers watching a program on TBS, and that number is different at 3:30, it’s different at 4pm, it’s different next week at 4pm,” according to Dan Aversana, Turner’s senior vice president of Ad Innovation and Programmatic Solutions. According to eMarketer, secondary guarantees made on advanced target delivery could account for as much as 15% of the inventory sold by network groups that are leaders in data-driven targeting for the 2017–2018 TV season. By combining consumer purchase data with TV viewing information, marketers are better equipped to segment and target customers. Data must be treated like cash.

Strong passwords can be hard to remember, but you shouldn’t keep a written record of them. Instead, consider registering for a password manager like LastPass. Password managers are applications or browser extensions that store login credentials for the websites, then log in to those sites automatically for you, so you don’t have to remember every password for each account. 5. Lock down your social media channels. Be careful about what you’re sharing on social media. Besides not posting sensitive information like your address, phone number, and when you’re headed out of town, be aware of other personally identifiable information that’s out there. When trying to reset passwords and usernames, hackers often go through the process of guessing your security questions. If you’re not careful, the information to help them answer those questions might be living on your social media page. To keep yourself safe, ensure you’re properly securing your social media sites from the public and limit the amount of information you’re posting on those channels. Also, when you’re selecting your security questions, certain answers might be easy for intruders to locate online. Common security questions ask for your mother’s maiden name, your high school mascot, and the name of your family pet. Consider choosing more obscure questions to answer. While following these steps won’t ensure you’re completely safe, they will help put you and your family ahead of the game when it comes to online and digital security.

He was ranked 40th by NHL Central Scouting (North American skaters).  With the 159th selection (sixth round), the Sharks selected 18-year-old right wing Jacob McGrew from Spokane of the Western Hockey League (WHL). McGrew missed the 2016-17 season with a lower body injury after spending the previous two seasons with the Los Angeles Jr. Kings. He led the T1EHL U-17 in goals (29) while posting 47 points in 32 games in 2015-16.  The five-foot-eleven, 190-pound native of Orange, California also participated in the USA Hockey U-17 selection camp in 2016 and led all skaters in points (four goals, five assists).  With the 185th selection (sixth round), San Jose selected 18-year-old center Alexander "Sasha" Chmelevski (Che-mehl-EHV-skee) from Ottawa of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL).

He also led

all players at the 2016 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament with four goals and five assists in four games to help the United States take home a silver medal. He was ranked 43rd overall by NHL Central Scouting (North American skaters).  With their final selection of the 2017 NHL Draft at pick number 212 (seventh round), the Sharks selected 18-year-old left wing Ivan (EYE-vin) Chekhovich (check-OH-vich) from Baie-Comeau of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL). Chekhovich recorded 59 points (26 goals, 33 assists) in 60 games during 2016-17, and led his team in goals, assists and points. He ranked 3rd amongst all QMJHL rookies in points and 4th in goals. Chekhovich represented Russia at the U-18 World Jr. Championship, earning a bronze medal after leading his team in goals (5) and points (9, tied), and was named to the tournament's all-star team.  The five-foot-ten, 180-pound native of Yekaterinburg, Russia has represented Russia at several international tournaments, including the U-18 World Jr. Championships (2017/2016) and the World U-17 Hockey Challenge (2016).  He was ranked 71st overall by NHL Central Scouting (North American skaters).  *This marks the first time in Sharks franchise history that the team has selected two Californiaborn players in the same draft (McGrew and Chmelevski).
