Conservation Group Opposes Drought Legislation Conservation groups say a bill introduced last week by a California Congressman to combat the drought would have devastating consequences for wildlife. House Resolution 2898, known as the “Western Water and American Food Security Act of 2015,” would allow more water to be pumped from the delta and sent to farms in the San Joaquin Valley.

Amid a historic week for Supreme Court decisions, the California Supreme Court upheld San José’s inclusionary housing ordinance, a law I spearheaded in 2007 requiring housing developers to construct or pay fees enabling affordable units. This makes San Jose the largest city in the nation with such a law. (Read more on our site) MALDEF PRESIDENT & GM KEYNOTE SPEAKER AT LRRT MEETING Mexican American Legal & Education Fund, Inc.

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR

This July 4, 2015 celebrates the 239th anniversary (since 1776) the acceptance of the U.S. Constitution and its ‘Bill of Rights’ which enumerates those written American ideals which permit all to have equal protection under the law while enjoying ‘Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness’. Many social and civil rights changes happening now requires an adjustment of one’s mind-set. Those who disagree and as individuals still have a tinge of ‘White Supremecy’ belief in their psyche, these folks need to begin to practice what many persons of color already do: keep your private bias & bigotry to yourselves. Unless, of course, you happen to be in a private conversation where you not only have the right to express yourself, but also, the responsibility to hear the perspectives of others. What is being made acceptable today by U.S. Supreme Court decisions are the indications that many beliefs and practices held by some of us are really offensive and unacceptable to many of us who are targeted. That is why ‘economic and racial profiling’ must be exposed in all its implications. That is why we must, as a community, question the judicial system, beginning with law enforcement, which ends up having incarcerated disproportionate residents of color (Black and Hispanic). That is why we must fault the U.S. Congress, who wields the power of the purse, with not adequately funding “Citizens

and Immigration Services” (CIS) so that the backlog of administrative work may be addressed. That is why citizens must fault the U.S. Congress, which has not adequately funded the Veteran’s Administration nor conducted effective oversight monitoring to eliminate abuses impacting our ‘Wounded Warriors” and veterans. Many additional items need mitigative attention, but the most egregious is the lack of any effective correction of the current state of taxes administered by the IRS. The current inequities embodied in the IRS tax codes are supportive of the inequities of wealth distribution and provide the basis of withholding resources needed by our disabled and impoverished. A very simple solution would be to set aside all current IRS Tax Codes and replace them with a single 15% Flat Tax on all personal incomes, especially those of all corporations now decreed to have the rights and responsibilities ‘personhood’ per the U.S. Supreme Court. And those “banksters” who plead ignorance when their employees take advantage of their authority to pracitce collusion (as with foreign money exchanges) and to ignore the equity mortgage ownership of home buyers.....those ‘banksters’ must go to jail for an appropriate prison sentence.... or again the U.S. Congress must ‘break up those six mega-bank organizations. In addition, the U.S. Congress must pass legislation which permits the monitoring of all major financial transactions. Monitoring is not ‘regulation’....monitoring serves to expose wrongdoing (such as continuing to promote derivatives which almost caused global financial collapse due to the lack

of trust and integrity. The good faith, trust and integrity of the U.S. Treasury saved the day.

María Aponte, bloguera de la página Verdelicias y visitante constante de los mercados agrícolas y las granjas.

We all pay “transaction taxes” commonly known as ‘sales taxes’. Most of us dutifully pay our personal income taxes. How can we all understand why no ‘transaction tax’ is collected on all those exchanges of stocks, bonds and other financial instruments? Why are major financial houses exempt from payment of a sales tax? A ‘Transaction Tax’ amounting to 0.003% on selected exchanges of wealth (all sales of stocks, bonds, other financial instruments) would permit payment of the national debt and support pre-K-12 education, medical care, housing for the impoverised disadvantaged folks. When the 1% own and influence some 75% of all the wealth which they cannot spend during their lifetime, the redistribution of wealth must happen.....and today the only two methods are via taxes and altruistic gifts to nonprofit ‘pro bono publico’ NGO/CBO’s. Just look at what Warren Buffet and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have done once these few individuals realized that their accumulated wealth did no good for anyone until it was ‘put into programs and ‘ good causes’ (e.g.. fight HIV, measles, smallpox illnesses and promote education, etc.).

Muchas veces nosotros los latinos, tenemos la idea de que los productos frescos y orgánicos son más caros. Aun así, los mercados agrícolas ofrecen formas alternas de pago, como el programa gubernamental SNAP que ofrece ayuda económica a familias elegibles para proporcionar suplementos alimentarios y cupones. También se puede utilizar el sistema de pago EBT (por sus siglas en inglés), que es una tarjeta electrónica de beneficios otorgada por el gobierno a quienes califican.

All members of Congress are all elected by citizens who participate in this democracy by voting.

Luisa Fernanda Montero LA RED HISPANA La salud y el bienestar comienzan en la mesa. Dicen por ahí, de hecho que “somos lo que comemos” y tal afirmación no está alejada de la realidad. Hay que notar que más de 18 millones de hispanos en los Estados Unidos sufren de obesidad. La raíz del problema viene de la forma en que nos alimentamos y de los productos que consumimos. El asunto es entonces, qué comer, cómo acceder a los mejores productos y no quebrarse en el intento. La respuesta no está muy lejos, está tan cerca como pueda estar el mercado agrícola de su ciudad. Muchos de los mejores productos se dan por temporadas. “Cuando uno quiere vivir saludable, no tiene que comprar mucha comida, solo saber que comprar y escoger recetas y productos. Los mercados agrícolas te dan eso, lo fresco, necesario y saludable”, dice

Martín González, de La Plaza Farmers Market cuenta las ventajas de apoyar a los mercados agrícolas. “Hay un complemento oral, que es muy valioso para la comunidad”, dice Martín, “Los espacios como La Plaza, pueden también revolucionar, porque pueden contagiar a los individuos y darle una idea a las personas, para que puedan crear su propio negocio.” Lucia Stanton, productora para el mercado agrícola de Chaparral, New Mexico, explica, “Debemos volver a los tiempos en que lo poco era más, no necesariamente ten-

emos que comprar más productos, porque son de mala calidad, han perdido sus nutrientes y sus vitaminas, a cada hora los productos pierden su valor nutritivo.” Es bueno recordar entonces que: “a más fresco más sabroso”… y por supuesto más saludable. Los mercados agrícolas traen los productos a nuestras mesas directamente de las granjas, sin químicos y en muchos casos son producidos por familias de nuestra comunidad. “Las mercaderías no son tratadas con preservativos ni hormonas, y tampoco genéticamente modificadas,” dice Luciana Davidzon, bloguera y cocinera latina que asiste regularmente a los mercados agrícolas y participante del mercado The City Harvest NYC. Si te interesa tu salud y la de tu familia y quieres alimentarte sanamente, los mercados agrícolas de seguro son una opción para que puedas llevar lo mejor a tu mesa.

EDUCATION

JULY3-9, 2015

4 top technology degrees for today’s career seekers Demand for cyber security professionals continues to rise, with the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicting a 37 percent increase in information security analyst jobs through 2022.

BPT The career outlook for technology professionals remains highly promising. With so many emerging employment opportunities, The White House announced the TechHire initiative in March to encourage American cities to offer training to prepare the workforce for careers in growing tech fields. The United States has about five million open jobs today, which is more than at any point since 2001. Over half a million of those job openings are in information technology fields like software development, network administration and cybersecurity, many of which did not exist just a decade ago. As an added incentive for Americans to pursue tech careers, the average salary in a job that requires information technology (IT) skills – whether in manufacturing, advertising, retail or banking – is 50 per-

cent higher than the average private-sector American job. “Our information technology students today are enthusiastic about the future job,” says Dr. Rajin Koonjbearry, professor and cyber security expert at DeVry University. “Not only are traditional IT careers standing out, but increasing private information online calls for cyber security experts to help companies protect against threats.” Here are some of the most valuable tech specializations and degree programs available to career seekers today: 1. Cyber Security Cyber security has been listed by The World Economic Forum as one of the top five global risks in terms of likelihood, and has been ranked as a top concern in federal chief information officer surveys. The White House even released an executive order aimed at improving critical infrastructure cybersecurity.

To meet this demand, colleges and universities are starting to offer degrees in cyber security. In May, DeVry University unveiled a new Cyber Security Programming specialization within its Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems program, available on campus or online in select states. The program includes Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) preparation and exam facilitation, a key credential employers may require in hiring cyber security professionals that has been accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). 2. Health Information Systems Another fast-growing tech specialization is in health information systems. The North American healthcare technology market is predicted to grow significantly to more than $31 billion by 2017, up from approximately $22 billion in 2012, according to Research and Markets’ North American Healthcare IT Market Report.

Demand for health informatics specialists is partly driven by the growing complexity of healthcare operations, government initiatives to promote IT in hospitals and the shift toward paperless billing and payment environments. Students who earn a bachelor’s degree in computer information systems can pursue professional certification as a Certified Associate in Healthcare Information and Management (CAHIMS) to show employers their knowledge and skills. 3. Systems Analysis and Integration Computer systems analysts play a vital role in researching, planning and recommending software and systems that best meet an organization’s business requirements. These

analysts combine their knowledge of information technology and business to manage the organization’s overall computer system – from designing and developing new systems to helping networks run more efficiently and effectively. According to a new market report, the global market for system integration is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of nearly 11 percent from 2014 to 2020. Following graduation, students who want to stand out from the competition can pursue a post-baccalaureate certificate in Information Systems and Management. 4. Web Development and Administration The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects about 20 percent employment growth for Web developers by 2022. During

Throughout the end of May and into June, the Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) honors its student graduates from both the Special Education and Alternative Education programs. “These graduation ceremonies are a highlight of the year for everyone here at the County Office of Education,” said Jon R. Gundry, County Superintendent of Schools. “I greatly appreciate being able to welcome our kids and their families and to see firsthand how happy and proud they are at having accomplished this significant academic and personal milestone.”

On June 1, 82 students graduated from the SCCOE’s Alternative Schools, including Blue Ridge, Odyssey, Osborne, Terra Bella Academy, Snell Community and Edge Community schools and the independent study program. Superintendent Gundry and Judge Patrick Tondreau provided the keynote remarks for the event, with three stu-

dent speakers also addressing their peers, families and friends. Both the California Association of Latino Superintendents and Administrators (CALSA) and ACSA (Association of California School Administrators) awarded a total of seven scholarships to students in the graduating class. Graduates participated in a rose ceremony, during which they were given the opportunity to share their rose with someone that had helped them to achieve their personal goals. Twenty-nine students also graduated from the Special Education’s Connect PostSecondary Program during a

that period, about 28,500 new jobs will need to be filled in an industry that already has roughly 141,400 positions. The expansion of e-commerce is expected to fuel this high job growth in the coming decade. Companies need web developers who can design webpage layout and solve code problems, help expand their online retail presence and safeguard the site and end users’ privacy. Given the high job growth rates expected in these four areas, bachelor’s degree candidates are increasingly looking for programs that meet their future career aspirations. A specialized degree, especially when paired with a professional certification valued by employers, can open doors to a rewarding career.

ceremony held at the Quinlan Center in Cupertino. Superintendent Gundry and Dr. Mary Ann Dewan, Chief Schools Officer, assisted in the presentation of graduation certificates to the students, who had completed their participation in a post-secondary transition program preparing them for their adult options. Ten students in the graduating class have been directly hired into jobs, with the rest of the students enrolled in a variety of adult programs. This month, 13 students also graduated from the SCCOE’s Special Education Centers at the McCollam, Della Maggiore and Gateway schools, and going on to adult programs. Additionally, two students in the Special Education program graduated from the SCCOE’s Foothill Program with their High School Diplomas, 12 students graduated from Erikson Center and two students from the County Jail received their High School diplomas through the SCCOE’s Special Education home study program.

BPT Americans are becoming more committed to diversity and inclusion than ever before. They look to do business with companies that are truly diverse, too. Not only does this align with their values, it offers a distinct advantage: companies with more diverse teams are also top financial performers, according to McKinsey & Company research. How do you know if you are buying from, or even working for, a truly diverse company and not one that only pretends to be? Here are some tips from Lorie Valle-Yañez, vice president and chief diversity officer at Massachusetts Mutual Life insurance Company (MassMutual) – a DiversityInc. 2015 Top 50 Company. 1. Look at leadership Diversity is a strong value that is woven into a company’s culture. That culture is most often driven by the leaders at an organization. The best first step in determining if a company is truly diverse is to look at the makeup of those in leadership roles. What is the makeup of the C-suite and board of directors? Are women and different ethnicities represented?

In 2004, the majority of Fortune 100 companies had less than 30 percent Board diversity. By 2012 that number only slightly increased to 31 percent, according to the 2012 Alliance for Board Diversity Census. 2. Ask about initiatives Diversity is an ongoing effort that requires dedication. Before working with or for a company, ask about diversity initiatives and how the company is structured to support a dedication to inclusion – both internally and externally – toward clients. Is there a department and leader dedicated to serving the unique needs of diverse customers and employees? At MassMutual, the chief diversity officer supports cultural diversity for staff, suppliers and clients. Holistic efforts like these demonstrate a company’s ongoing commitment to diversity. 3. Investigate inclusion A culture of diversity is an ongoing effort that involves all employees. When looking at the authenticity of a company, inclusion is an important value. Company leaders must embrace diversity of thought and unique viewpoints while helping employees to develop professionally and maintain high engagement at work.

One indication of inclusion at a company is the presence of Employee Resource Groups. ERGs are great for promoting inclusion among all employees. Groups are created for people with similar characteristics, such as gender and religion, and some are even interest-based, focusing on topics such as the environment or parenting. MassMutual has nine different ERGs that provide mentoring and volunteer opportunities to employees, and at the same time are involved in supporting the company’s business strategy.

4. Seek strategic partnerships A company that values diversity and has a mind for the future will look for strategic partnerships that provide insight into niche markets and unique cultures. Find out if a company has memberships to diverse organizations that represent different markets and groups of people. Additionally, learn whether the company strives to work with others who are equally committed to diversity.

It is most often young men who reach the point of crisis and seek medical care for a range of symptoms that can include severe agitation, anxiety, nausea, vomiting, rapid heartbeat, elevated blood pressure, tremors, seizures, hallucinations, paranoia and unresponsiveness. Bath Salts: Another Threat

NEWSUSA While many people are aware of the basic tenants of good oral care, thousands of people still don’t floss their teeth -- and they lie about it. According to a new national survey, more than a quarter (27 percent) of U.S. adults admit they lie to their dentists about how often they floss their teeth. Along with twice-daily brushing and receiving an annual comprehensive periodontal evaluation, daily flossing is a critical component in the prevention of periodontal disease, commonly referred to as gum disease. The Harris Poll, on behalf of the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP), was conducted online among more than 2,000 U.S. adults and among the top 10 U.S. markets. The AAP is using the survey results to urge all Americans to “Love the Gums You’re With” and to raise awareness of periodontal disease -- a chronic inflammatory disease caused when bacteria in plaque grow below the gum line, leading to swelling, irritation, receding gums and tooth loss. Periodontal disease has been linked to many other chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease and even cancer. Despite its prevalence, periodontal disease is rarely discussed, resulting in a lack of urgency, awareness and education among the public. “There’s clearly more work to be done when it comes to educating Americans about the importance of oral hygiene in maintaining healthy gums. There are more than 500 bacterial species that can be found in plaque, and brushing alone does not remove the bacteria that live below the gum line,” says AAP President Joan Otomo-Corgel, DDS, MPH. “The good news about periodontal disease is that with proper and timely care, it’s treatable and often reversible. If a person has been diagnosed with or is at risk for periodontal disease, a periodontist has the training and expertise to determine the best course of treatment.” Patients should discuss their periodontal health with a dental professional who can make a referral to a periodontist if necessary.

What Makes Spice So Dangerous?

A recent Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) report revealed that emergency department visits resulting from synthetic marijuana more than doubled in just one year.

Spice (synthetic cannabinoid) is a designer drug that is made with analogs or a chemical structure similar to commonly used illicit drugs. The composition of these products changes constantly, as manufacturers create new variations to get around legislation to make a specific compound illegal. The manmade chemicals are typically sprayed on a plant or herb (not marijuana) that is most commonly smoked, and mimics the effects of the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. Because this product is labeled “not for human consumption,” the intended use is masked and production is not subject to quality control procedures or oversight that would be applied to other drugs; what makes its way into the hands of teens may contain substances that can have serious health consequences. With no warning labels, young people are not aware that using these products can be harmful or even deadly.

Most commonly known as Spice, synthetic cannabinoids go by many street names such as K2, Spice, Diamond, fake weed, Yucatan Fire, Moon Rocks and Skunk. The herb is often marketed as herbal incense and potpourri, and labeled “not for human consumption,” making it legal to sell and for minors to purchase the drug. Manufacturers sometimes include “organic” in the name to give the appearance of a natural product that does not harm health. Similar to how cigarettes were once marketed, Spice packaging often features cartoons and images appealing to the 12 to 18 age group, and the product can easily be purchased online, or in convenience stores or head shops.

Bath salts are another designer drug marketed to and used by youth in a manner similar to Spice. Bath salts are also used by those 20 to 29 years old. Known commonly as Bliss, Bloom, Ivory Wave and Scarface, bath salts contain synthetic cathinones similar to amphetamines. Sometimes marketed as jewelry cleaner, plant food or phone screen cleaner, bath salts are presumed to contain methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV) and other similar chemicals, although there is uncertainty because tests do not always detect these substances. When bath salts are used, the effects can include agitation, aggression and violent behavior, anxiety and panic attacks, paranoia, confusion, hallucinations and delusions, psychosis, chest pains, increased heart rate, heightened blood pressure and sometimes suicidal ideation or suicide attempts. Undetectable In Drug Screens The synthetic designer drugs are also popular with people who are subject to mandatory drug testing. Although some of the psychoactive compounds can be detected in tests, many routine drug screens do not pick up these chemicals. For prevention information and more about Spice and other substances, visit www.newsletter.samhsa.gov. This article is reprinted from SAMHSA News.


NEWSUSA As the weather warms and schedules become packed with summer sports and activities, it can be easy to let your heart healthy diet slide to the bottom of the priority list. With a dash of planning and a spoonful of creativity, summer meals can taste as good as they are nutritious and give you the fuel you need to take advantage of the wonderful weather. Here are some tips for keeping your meals and snacks heart healthy in the summer months:

Retire el pescado del aceite y colóquelo sobre una toalla de papel para absorber el exceso de aceite. Repita el proceso hasta cocinar todos los filetes de pescado.

Being on the go doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice muscle-building protein in the summer. For dinner options, choose lean meats, poultry or fish. Select lean proteins for refreshing and easy-to-make sandwiches.

Become a Fruit Fanatic Summer is the season for fresh fruits that are chock full of vitamins, minerals and fiber. They make a great substitute for traditional desserts that are high in fat and calories. Wash and slice any combination of juicy melons, berries, or other fruits and add them to your favorite yogurt or sorbet and blend for a cooling and healthy treat. Larger fruits such

Streamline Salads Salads are also a go-to for the summer months but accompanying oily dressing and cheese can load them down with fat and calories. Choose low-fat or light dressing options and steer clear from cream-based diet spoilers. Minimize added sodium and fat by sprinkling low-fat varieties such as Swiss, Mozzarella, Parmesan or cottage cheese.

San Jose CALIFORNIA After calling for streamlined regulations in April, San José Mayor Sam Liccardo, Santa Clara Valley Water District Chair Gary Kremen, Santa Clara Mayor Jaime Matthews, and State Senator Jim Beall have succeeded in achieving fast-tracked regulations for the expansion of drought-proof purified water for groundwater replenishment when Senate Bill 88 was signed into law by Governor Brown last Wednesday. Senate Bill 88, as part of the State budget, expedites the installation of water pipelines along existing thoroughfares like City streets. Streamlining the pipelines will save millions in regulatory clearance and speed up the project by at least a year. The bill brings the City and region closer to groundwater replenishment with purified water. When built out, the project will bolster Santa Clara County’s water supply by as much as 35,000 acre feet per year or enough water for 175,000 people per year. Project Background: With the current water supply crisis, San José Mayor Sam Liccardo, Board Chair Gary Kremen, along with Mayors from Santa Clara, Campbell and Los Gatos worked with leaders in Sacramento on SB 88, particularly to carve out language for the acceleration of recycled water reuse, called Indirect Potable Reuse (“IPR”). IPR is the advanced purification of recycled water, which then is used to fill groundwater recharge ponds, allowing it to naturally filter through an additional environmental barrier of sand, gravel and rock, and eventually restoring depleted underground aquifers. A joint City of San José and Santa Clara Valley Water District “South Bay Water Recycling Master Plan,” calls for IPR build out, with both entities ready to begin construction in order to provide a timely solution to the current drought. The passage of SB 88 will streamline the planning process for the project and shave off one or two years off the completion schedule, thus increasing the region’s ability to respond to the drought. The regional Master Plan contemplates 4 phases of program development, based on the location of the percolation ponds where the treated water will be incorporated into the aquifers. An accelerated schedule was developed based on the urgent need for drought response, and includes the following development timelines: Phase 1   2   3   4  

Project Ford  Ponds   Mid  Basin  Injection   Los  Gatos  Percolation  Ponds   Westside  Injection  Wells  

Added Water  Supply   (Acre  Feet  Per  Year  or   AFY)   4,200   5,600   20,200   5,000  

Timeline 2018 2020 2020 2025

The capital cost of Phase I, the Ford Ponds Purification Center, is estimated at $64.4 M, and an additional $40M for Reservoir Upgrades needed in the South Bay Water Recycle system to support water supply to the Ford Ponds Purification Center. The construction of Phases 2 through 4 will collectively cost approximately $522 million, and will require a substantial expansion of the capacity of the current Silicon Valley Advanced Water Purification Center by the District.

Beginning this month Sara Cody, M.D. will step into the role of the Director of Public Health for the County of Santa Clara, while continuing in her role as County Health Officer, which she has held since October 2013. This change will streamline and integrate leadership of the department following the departure of former director Daniel Peddycord. “Dr. Cody has extensive knowledge of the community, the health department and a great deal of public health expertise,” said County Executive Jeffrey V. Smith, M.D., J.D. “Her appointmentto the newly redesigned, dual role of Director and Health Officer will provide a seamless transition for the Public Health Department, and the community will benefit from her leadership.” In her dual role as Health Officer and Health Department Director, Dr. Cody’s duties will include providing public health leadership for all of Santa Clara County, including leading the development of public health policy and programs, assessing and reporting on the health status of the community, and enforcing local health orders and ordinances, while overseeing the administration of a 450 person public health department. The decision to make this structural change, uniting

the roles of Public Health Director and Health Officer, grew out of a desire to align the legal authorities and responsibilities for protecting the public’s health with the operational functions of the department. This is a common organizational structure for local health departments in California. “I would like to thank the County Executive, the Director of the Health and Hospital System, and the Board of Supervisors for entrusting me the tremendous responsibility and opportunity to lead Santa Clara County’s Public Health Department,” said Dr. Sara Cody. “I am looking forward to continuing to serve the people of Santa Clara County by ensuring that we have a top tier public health department working to keep our community safe and healthy.” Dr. Cody holds a Bachelor’s degree in Human Biology from Stanford University. She earned her Doctor of Medicine from Yale University School of Medicine. Following an Internship and Residency in Internal Medi-

cine at Stanford University Hospital, Dr. Cody completed a two-year fellowship in Epidemiology and Public Health, as an Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) Officer with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). She joined the Public Health Department in Santa Clara County in 1998 and served as the County County’s Communicable Disease Controller/Deputy Health Officer. In this role, she oversaw surveillance and investigation of 83 reportable diseases, conducted investigations on outbreaks, participated in planning for public health emergencies, infectious diseases, and bioterrorism, and responded to SARS, H1N1 and other public health emergencies. She was appointed County Health Officer in October 2013. Dr. Cody is a Santa Clara County native. She grew up in Palo Alto, where she currently resides with her family. Dr. Cody’s appointment is effective July 6, 2015.

San Jose and Oakland City Employees Heed Mayors’ Call to Ride During National Bike Month in May Oakland CALIFORNIA However you measure Team Bike Challenge’s impact — whether it’s the number of people who participated, the amount of green miles cycled, the pounds of carbon dioxide removed from the air or the aggregate calories burned — the friendly competition that attracts commuters from across the nine-county Bay Area broke all records in 2015. A total of 11,724 Bay Area residents were inspired to take part in the month-long cycling competition that pays big dividends for the environment and their own good health, a 22 percent increase over the 9,630 who participated in TBC in 2014 and an all-time high for the program. While many were hardcore cyclists, some were novices who were trying bicycle commuting for the first time. The number of riders who committed to riding their bikes to and from work, as well as for errands, shopping and the like, throughout the month of May tells only part of the story. By the close of competition on May 31, over 1,600 teams (compared to 1,370 in 2014), each composed of up to five riders and representing 535 local companies, logged an incredible 481,734 miles — saving over 400,000 pounds of CO2 and

burning close to 20 million calories. Adding a new twist to the competition, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf challenged San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo to a Bike-Off, to see which of the two cities’ employees could log the most miles during the month of May. Both mayors sit on the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), a presenting sponsor of the region’s annual Bike to Work program that includes Team Bike Challenge. “Bike commuting is an inexpensive and healthy commute option that supports our goals of reducing congestion and air pollution in our region,” said Mayor Schaaf. “As a new mayor and new member of the MTC, this friendly challenge with Mayor Liccardo was a fun way to promote Bike to Work Month and show people the benefits of the no-pollute commute. I’m thrilled to celebrate the hardworking Oakland and San Jose employees who together biked over 10,000 miles over the course of the month, and I want to especially acknowledge the employees at our Oakland libraries who did more than their share to make sure Oakland came out on top in this year’s Mayors’ Challenge.” City employees in Oakland and San Jose lived up to the challenge by racking up impressive numbers — Oakland with 7,110 miles biked and San Jose with 2,622 miles. While Oakland won

the bragging rights for this year, San Jose has pledged to come back even stronger in 2016. “Everyone who participates in Team Bike Challenge is a winner,” said Mayor Liccardo. “The Bay Area benefits from the savings of harmful emissions and participants gain the health benefits of increased physical activity.” Team Bike Challenge Winners When all the tallying was done, San Francisco’s partycar.com team (2014’s second place winner) won the regionwide team competition with an incredible 9,274 miles biked and 398,761 calories burned. The individual winner in the Team Bike Challenge competition was the remarkable Peter Chang, also from partycar.com, who rode 3,114 miles and burned a whopping 133,898 calories. Second place in the regional team competition went to the Resolvers from Santa Clara County, with 6,425 miles and 276,266 calories burned. Third place went to Sun Blinding, also of Santa Clara County (also 2014’s third place winner), with 3,659 miles biked and 157,255 calories expended. Partycar.com also dominated the individuals’ competition, with team captain Peter Colijn coming in second place (2,132 miles and 91,667 calories) and team member Cordelia Link taking third (1,626 miles and 69,897 calories).

Suzanne Potter CALIFORNIA NEWS SERVICE San Bernardino CALIFORNIA Gold mining enthusiasts are disappointed and environmentalists are cheering after a judge ruled Wednesday a destructive type of river mining will not be allowed in California this summer. The San Bernardino County Superior Court ruled that a 2009 ban on suction dredge mining will remain in place. Jonathan Evans, environmental health legal director and senior attorney with the Center for Biological Diversity, says the equipment used in suction dredge mining does significant damage when users sift through stream beds. “This digs up sediment and destroys a lot of habitat for salmon, which are already under incredible amounts of stress in California because of the drought,” says Evans. Miners dispute the threat to fish and say small-scale gold mining is not harmful. Evans says suction dredge mining can also inadvertently poison water by releasing mercury that’s lain underground since the days of the first California Gold Rush. “There are no restrictions on other types of gold mining like hand panning, but this type of suction dredge gold mining is particularly harmful,” he says. A previous survey conducted by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife found 80 percent of suction dredge miners engage in the activity as a weekend hobby, not as a means to make a living or make money.

cautions required are common sense.

Railroad companies soon won’t be able to carry oil in California unless they have a safety plan - and put aside lots of money to cover any future spills. That’s because a federal judge in San Francisco dismissed an industry lawsuit last week against California’s new railroad safety law.Patti Goldman, managing attorney for Earthjustice, said the pre-

“All other industries, like the tankers that carry the oil, the refiners, the pipelines, all of them prepare these oil-spill response plans,” she aaid. “It’s time for the railroads to do the same.” Railroad companies had argued that federal law preempts states’ regulation of the railroads. Goldman said the companies now will

have more incentive to get the training, equipment and communications systems in place to prevent the worstcase scenario. “They improve their practices. They can’t get financial assurances if they’re being really risky,” she said. “And they figure out how to handle the oil better so that they won’t have a spill.” California’s railroad safety law will go into effect once regulations are finalized.

Kathay Feng, national redistricting director of Common Cause in Los Angeles, says the open, public redistricting process has put an end to so-called “backroom deals” meant to create safe seats.

- Election reforms that introduced an independent redistricting commission in California will remain in place, following a U.S. Supreme Court decision to uphold a similar redistricting system in Arizona. California’s independent redistricting commission was part of a sweeping initiative package passed in 2008, which replaced a system in which politicians often drew legislative districts to favor incumbents. The redistricting commission certified new electoral district maps in 2011. Stephen Spaulding, policy counsel with the grassroots advocacy group Common

Cause, says the Supreme Court decision is a victory for voters. “This was a sweeping affirmation of the California model, which allows citizens to draw the lines rather than legislators picking and choosing their voters,” he says. The California reforms also included a switch to an “open” primary, intended to draw more centrist candidates that can appeal to the entire electorate, instead of an extreme wing or faction of a political party. Since the changes, Democrats have

“There were more than a dozen incumbents who either decided not to run, or who were defeated in elections because they didn’t have the guaranteed re-election that they used to when district lines were drawn by the Legislature,” she says. Had the decision gone the other way, Feng says California’s election system would have been thrown into disarray. The next round of redistricting is scheduled for 2021, the year after the next census.

Carly Fiorina and others blame California’s drought on misguided environmental policies instead of climate change.

Doug Moss & Roddy Scheer EARTHTALK While no one questions that California is in the midst of one of the worst droughts in recent history, the jury is still out as to why, at least according to some conservatives like former Hewlett Packard CEO and 2016 Republican Presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina. This past April, Fiorina told talk show host Glenn Beck that California’s drought was a “man-made disaster” caused by “liberal environmentalists” who blocked the construction of appropriate reservoirs and other infrastructure that could have helped prevent the current crisis. The vast majority of the state’s 1,400 dams and reservoirs were built more than four decades ago. According to FoxNews, environmentalists “have since stopped the construction of water storage and delivery systems through legal and political actions” while fighting “to ensure that captured water is released into streams and the ocean— rather than the water delivery system—in order to boost fish populations and dilute the salinity of the delta.” Conservatives are particularly incensed about releasing water from the state’s

control to help a small number of fish species already on the brink of extinction anyway. Priority #1 for state wildlife officials has been protection of the endangered delta smelt, a three inch long minnow that feeds on plankton and has a tough time surviving passage through the pumps of California’s existing water diversion system. Since the fish was listed as endangered in 1993, biologists have tried to maintain a friendlier environment for it by withholding fresh river runoff that would otherwise go to homes, businesses and agricultural operations across the state. The state has flushed upwards of 1.4 trillion gallons of freshwater into the ocean since 2008 to protect delta smelt from the water system pumps. But despite these herculean efforts, delta smelt look to be headed for extinction anyway. “In California, fish and frogs and flies are really important,” said Fiorina. “California is a classic case of liberals being willing to sacrifice other people’s lives and livelihoods at the altar of their ideology.” She went on to tell MSNBC that whatever California does to address climate change at this point won’t make a bit of difference: “A single state, or single nation acting alone can make no difference at all, that’s what the scientists say,” she said. “We’re disabling our own economy and not hav-

ing any impact at all on climate change.” “Droughts are nothing new in California, but right now, 70 percent of California’s rainfall washes out to sea because liberals have prevented the construction of a single new reservoir or a single new water conveyance system over decades, during a period in which California’s population has doubled,” added Carly Fiorina. “This is the classic case of liberals being willing to sacrifice other people’s lives and livelihoods at the altar of their ideology.” Of course, environmentalists counter that blaming them for their efforts to preserve and protect landscapes, hydrological flows and wildlife is nothing more than a smokescreen to divert attention from the real culprits in California’s current drought woes: climate change due to man-made carbon emissions and our profligate water usage habits.

SIERRA CLUB Washington, DC — La Corte Suprema de Estados Unidos se puso hoy del lado de los contaminadores y revirtió los históricos Estándares de Mercurio y Contaminantes Atmosféricos (MATS) de la Agencia de Protección Medioambiental (EPA), los cuales están diseñados para protegernos a todos contra la peligrosa contaminación de las plantas de carbón.

CONTACTS: Glenn Beck, www.glennbeck.com; FoxNews, www.foxnews. com.

El dictamen de 5 a 4 rechaza la decisión de la Corte de Apelaciones y envió el caso de vuelta a la EPA para revisar los costos de los estándares para la industria. También instruyó a la Corte de Apelaciones del Circuito de DC determinar si los estándares seguirán vigentes mientras la EPA completa los análisis requeridos.

Las protecciones MATS, la cuales se finalizaron en 2012, requieren que las plantas de combustión de carbón reduzcan sus emisiones de mercurio en un 91% y restringir decididamente otros contaminantes, como arsé-

nico, cromo y gas de ácido hidroclorídrico, los cuales se relacionan con un largo rosario de enfermedades. Estas protecciones están diseñadas fundamentalmente para proteger a los más vulnerables de nuestra sociedad, como los niños, los ancianos y las comunidades de color que sufren desproporcionadamente las consecuencias de esta contaminación carbonera. Como respuesta a la decisión de la Corte Suprema, Mary Anne Hitt, directora de la Campaña Más Allá del Carbón del Sierra Club, emitió el siguiente comunicado: “Como madre, estoy indignada por la disposición de la Corte de retrasar la implementación de las protecciones que reforzarían el derecho de todos los niños a crecer amparados, saludables y protegidos contra la contaminación. Las regulaciones que rechazó la corte protegerían a nuestros niños de daños neurológicos permanentes causados por la exposición al mercurio, y hubieran evitado unas 11,000

muertes prematuras, 4,700 ataques cardíacos y 130,000 ataques de asma al año. “En términos prácticos, la decisión no va a resucitar las esperanzas de supervivencia de la industria carbonera ni retrasar la transición hacia una economía de energía limpia. La mayoría de las compañías eléctricas ya han tomado decisiones para cumplir con los estándares. Sólo unas cuantas decenas de plantas de carbón operan hoy sin controles de contaminación de mercurio y contaminantes del aire ni planes para instalarlos. “Sin embargo, esta lamentable decisión afecta a los niños y las mujeres embarazadas — sobre todo los de origen hispano— ya que las compañías eléctricas querrán retrasar aún más el cumplimiento de las protecciones o usarlo como excusa para no instalar controles contra la contaminación. Ya es hora de actuar para eliminar la perjudicial contaminación sin retraso para que los niños de todo el país crezcan seguros y saludables”.

Earl Ofari Hutchinson NEW AMERICA MEDIA

South was vanquished on the battlefield?

Former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney says take it down. Present GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush says take it down. South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley will say a qualified take it down. The “it” is the Confederate Flag. They now want the flag removed from the South Carolina State House.

Yet, the brutal reality is that for decades, the Confederate flag, or some variation of it, has either flown or been displayed or embedded in state flags in Mississippi, Georgia, North Carolina, and Alabama and in decades past in other Southern states. Thousands of motor vehicle owners have requested personalized license plates with the Sons of Confederate Veterans logo which embeds the Confederate flag in it for their cars and trucks in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.

A year ago Romney, Bush, and Haley would not have dared say the flag must go. In fact, Haley vigorously defended the flag waving proudly at the state house during her reelection bid in 2014 and flatly stated before that the flag should stay. The hideous Charleston church massacre and the loud clamor again by civil rights activists and a wide swath of the public to dump the flag explains their sharp reversal. The flag, of course, should go and should have gone a long time ago when the NAACP did everything from calling for a boycott of the state to mass protests to get the flag scrapped. But it still stands and there’s little reason this time around to think much will change. The reason is not hard to find. The defenders, and there are countless numbers of them South and North, will not budge from their stock argument that the Confederate flag is merely a symbol of Southern history, pride and heritage, and has absolutely no political or social connotations, let alone intended as a symbol of slavery and a prop for racism? This is a bold faced distortion of you want to be charitable. Or, if you don’t, it’s a flat out lie.It is a blatant display of bigotry and racist defiance that symbolizes slavery and black oppression and is a direct slap in the face of blacks a century and a half after the

And thousands of white motorists tool down the state and city highways in parts of the South with the Confederate flag decal on their windows and bumpers. Does that tag them as a racist? Some are, and they embrace the flag to puff up their unabashed racism. But for many other Southern whites, the flag and its association with Southern history, is a genuine source of pride and identification. for many young whites that emblazon the flag on their attire, wave it at rock concerts, or football games, and other sporting events, it’s just a hip, in-crowd, stitch of cloth that’s little more than a chic fun and games display. They know little and could care less about what the flag meant, and the racial oppression that the flag has symbolized. They know nothing about the defiance of Southern legislatures and governors that dredged the flag up in the 1950s and adopted variations of it in their state flags as a blatant, open rebellion against court ordered integration in schools and public facilities. But no matter what the motive of the flag defend-

NATIONAL

ers, whether it be pride, ignorance, racism, or just youthful style, the NAACP and civil rights leaders that have fought ferocious battles against the display of the flag on public property, at taxpayer expense, and that includes thousands of African-American state taxpayers, stress that the flag undeniably was the symbol of a region that drenched the nation in blood for four years to defend values, a way of life, an economy and a political system that had slavery as its bedrock. And for decades after was a symbol of the South’s rigid domination and brute force control of African-Americans. The two wildly clashing views of the flag’s meaning are again on full display in the aftermath of the Charleston massacre. Unlike in times past when the debate over the flag has flared, no South Carolina state legislator has so far publicly come out with a full throated defense of the flag. However, it’s not necessary. The majority of them belief that the flag stands for what the South was and still is all about. That belief runs far too deep for even a shocking massacre to unhinge. The flag will be ridiculed, assailed, and burned. But it will likely stay and not just at a state house but in the minds and hearts of far too many.

SAN JOSE

San Jose CALIFORNIA San Jose Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson announced Tuesday that the team has acquired goaltender Martin Jones from the Boston Bruins in exchange for a 2016 first round draft selection and unsigned draft selection Sean Kuraly.

He was a member of the 2014 Stanley Cup winning squad. Last season, he posted a 4-5-2 record with a 2.25 goals-against average and a .906 save percentage with three shutouts. In 2013-14, Jones won his first eight NHL starts, tying an NHL record for consecutive wins to start a career. In

that span, he posted an 8-00 record with a 0.98 goalsagainst average and three shutouts and was named NHL Co-Rookie of the Month for Dec. 2013. He was the first NHL goaltender to allow an average of less than one goal in each of his first eight games. Jones spent parts of four seasons with Manchester of the American Hockey League (2010-2014), where he had an 84-57-10 record in 158 games, a 2.42 goals against average and a .920 save percentage, along with 12 shutouts. He was named to the AHL All-Star Team in 2014 and 2011 Internationally, Jones represented Canada at the 2015 World Championships, posting a 2-0 record and a 1.50 goals-against average and a .921 save percentage, helping the squad capture a gold medal. He also played for Canada at the 2010 World Junior Championships, capturing a silver medal. He played in two games, going 1-1 with a 2.30 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage. Kuraly was originally drafted by San Jose in the fifth round (133rd overall) of the 2011 NHL Draft and is entering his senior season with Miami University.

On Monday the San Jose Sharks officially launched the beginning of their 25th National Hockey League season, one day following the 25th anniversary of the June 28, 1990 groundbreaking of SAP Center at San Jose (then San Jose Arena). Over the franchise’s first 25 years in the Bay Area, the Sharks have been one of the most successful, innovative and recognizable sports brands on the planet, dating back to their groundbreaking logo and the team’s iconic use of the color teal. “The San Jose Sharks have established a proud and storied history in our first 25 years in the National Hockey League,” said Sharks Chief Operating Officer John Tortora. “It is our intention to honor and showcase that history this season in detailed fashion through a variety of activities. Most importantly, we want to thank and recognize our devoted and passionate fans, who have served as the driving force behind our franchise and the inspiration for the more than 300 players who have donned the Sharks uniform.” Today, the team unveiled the details of many exciting platforms designed to honor their silver anniversary and celebrate 25 successful years in the Bay Area, many of which have been crafted in

Several of the team’s commemorative 25th anniversary logos were unveiled today via the team’s social media channels.

For a limited number of games during the 2015-16 season, the team will wear a newly-created “Heritage Jersey.” This new jersey was developed by Terry Smith, who created the original Sharks logo and uniforms, and many of the other iconic designs associated with the team.
