RACISM...MORE THOUGHTS & ANALYSIS

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR This edition of EO is focused upon “RACISM” practiced by individuals in our community, its economy, and society. Racism needs to be openly discussed, evaluated and several racist traditional practices need to be exposed with candor. RACISM is an ideology held by many individuals who believe in “White supremacy”. RACISM is defined as “the belief in or the practice of the doctrine of racism.” In American history, the belief that 'Whites” should 'rule' all other people of color is a basic unconscious belief practiced by many authorities, who, when challenged, insist being 'fair and even-handed'. A common practice is that of profiling individuals into groups based upon selected traits such as 'skin color, projected intelligence levels and behavior. Prejudicial racism and double standards are often ingrained by community traditions and practices. PREJUDICE

is

defined

as “an unfavorable opinion or feeling beforehand or without knowledge, thought, or reason.” Bias, bigotry, xenophobia, nationalism, cults, tribes, and many more terms all have a 'prejudicial racism' content. Mainstream media has failed American society because of its focus on 'what happened that is broadcast as news', plus projections regarding who was to blame.” Rarely, is the philosophy of American's Christianity (or other religious faith's dogma and ideology) ever included in their reports or analysis. Rarely, are the Ten Commandments ever mentioned. Today, THOU SHALL DO NO MURDER' is simply not invoked by commentators as a standard of human behavior. The bias, bigotry and prejudice of racism is applied unconsciously because of our flawed reasoning patterns which are not guided by common philosophical values. A re-evaluation must be addressed of current beliefs, practices, and values which have been inculcated in each of us beginning with our parents, family, friends and associates. Racism contains elements of anxiety, distrust, fear, and ignorance. It is often used to

exclude or marginalize groups from becoming integrated or accepted by the dominant 'White' society today. “White leaders are aware that soon, citizens of color will outnumber them resulting in the loss of dominance and control of systems of governance. Racism is a doctrine and belief which is at odds with ideals stated in the U.S. Declaration of Independence (1776) and the U.S. Constitution which documents the idea “that all individuals, both men and women are to be treated fairly and equally under the laws. This implies equal access to justice, economic opportunity (jobs, housing, business, and social station). However, this is often not realized. As an individual I have personally experienced many incidents of racism during my life's journey. My successful survival often was attained by 'total explicit compliance' with the instructions of the police officer dealing with me. I have written prior Op-eds wherein I advise EO's readers to understand that police officers are “licensed to kill” ...often with impunity. The current practice of accepting an officer's statement “I felt my life was endangered” includes no challenge. This needs to be changed to permit

assessment of each case by an authority which has no conflict of interest. Out of 940 individuals who lost their lives during the past year as an outcome of 'police use of lethal force' (usually the officer's sidearm)...be informed that not a single officer has been found “guilty of inappropriate use of lethal force”. And this has been going on since organized police forces were developed and implemented. Both community and the police profession are hurting today because last week in Dallas, Texas an angry deranged individual decided to be judge, jury, and executioner when he decided to use his military skills to be the sniper who killed five police officers in retribution. Background investigations established that 'He had prepared himself very well by acquiring firearms, bomb ordinance and useful military 'shoot and move' tactics which made this single individual seem like 'several attackers'. It is time in this election year for American voters to insist upon up-dating law enforcement/ judicial system practices in regard to these happenings. The National Rifle Association, Koch Brother's Network, and all other special interest groups must be 'neutralized' by public demand that the U.S.

Congress enact appropriate laws in which are embodied new standards requiring all law enforcement departments and agencies be required to report each and every case of 'use of lethal force' for the purpose of assembling factual information which enables humane resolutions.

Racism is involved....it is the only way to rationally explain why 66% of inmates in Santa Clara County's jails, state and federal prisons are 'persons of color'.

We all experience the Black community speaking out about these unfortunate practices. Where are the voices of local Hispanic leaders? President Obama (2008) stated, “There is no White, Black, Hispanic, Asian, or indigent Native American America....there is only one America in which all are citizens equally protected by the laws of this nation and equally having access to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” That ideal society will never happen if the 'silent majority citizens' do not step up with their voices and votes. Nothing changes without discomforting effort. Current malpractices must be addressed now.

Por una cultura de respeto

José López Zamorano LA RED HISPANA Es común escuchar que Estados Unidos ha experimentado avances indiscutibles en el estado de las relaciones raciales, pero cuando apreciamos las estadísticas más actualizadas sobre la percepción de discriminación entre afroamericanos y latinos, es evidente que el tamaño de los desafíos es mayúsculo. Siete de cada 10 afroamericanos y cinco de cada 10 latinos se sienten todavía discriminados en los Estados Unidos. Se trata de una estadística alarmante, si se toma en consideración que son proporciones significativamente mayores que las existentes entre la comunidad blanca del país. Una de las quejas más frecuentes de los casos de discriminación tiene que

ver con la interacción diaria entre nuestras comunidades y las agencias policiales, algunas de las cuales han sido señaladas de manera reiterada por actuar con prejuicios raciales contra los residentes de las minorías de sus propias comunidades Los recientes incidentes que resultaron en la muerte del afroamericano Alton Sterling en Baton Rouge y de Philando Castile en Saint Paul, Minnesota, así como el subsecuente ataque injustificable de Micah Xavier Johnson que causó la muerte de 5 policías de Dallas son un lamentable ejemplo de la gravedad de la problemática. Los casos de presunto uso excesivo uso de la fuerza no son desafortunadamente nuevos. Hace poco se cumplieron seis años del asesinato del inmigrante mexicano Anastasio Hernández Rojas cuando, ocurrido cuando era sometido

y golpeado por una docena de agentes del servicio de inmigración y aduanas de los Estados Unidos. Desde la muerte de Anastasio en 2010 han ocurrido por lo menos otras 46 muertes de inmigrantes en circunstancias que organizaciones independientes clasifican como de posible uso excesivo de la fuerza policial. Algunas de las muertes han ocurrido en la línea limítrofe entre Estados Unidos y México. Miles de jóvenes, afroamericanos blancos y latinos han salidos a las calles a denunciar lo que perciben como una cultura de insensibilidad por parte de las agencias policiales hacia las minorías raciales y étnicas del país. Llama la atención el carácter multiracial de las movilizaciones que se han extendido a varias ciudades.

Tiene razón el presidente Barack Obama cuando hace un llamado a que ese legítimo sentimiento de frustración sea expresado públicamente de manera pacífica y respetuosa de las autoridades. El respeto es sin embargo una calle de doble sentido y es obligación moral y ética de la autoridad conducirse con profesionalismo y respeto en su interacción con las comunidades que son su razón de ser y a las que juraron proteger. Sólo una cultura de respeto y trato digno, que se inculque desde la mesa de la cocina hasta el salón de clases o el patio de juego, puede generar los cambios de fondo que se requieren para arrancar de raíz una mala hierba que rasga el tejido social de los Estados Unidos.

PREPARING NEXT GENERATION OF FEMALE LEADERS BPT

On July 23, top teenage girls representing every state will convene in Washington, D.C. to vote on important legislation. But these representatives haven't been elected by the American people... yet. The group of 100 high school senior girls will assemble for the 70th annual American Legion Auxiliary Girls Nation, an intensive weeklong program that teaches responsible citizenship grounded in ethics and the principles of our nation's founders. The American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) is a nonpartisan organization committed to advocating for veterans' issues, mentoring America's youth and promoting patriotism. They advance the mission of The American Legion, incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization founded on four pillars: Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation, National Security, Americanism and Children & Youth. Every year the ALA underwrites and presents the experiential learning program for exceptional female students, two from each of the 50 states, who serve as mock senators in ALA Girls Nation, a unique governmentin-action leadership development program designed to educate future leaders on U.S. government fundamentals and the rights, privileges and responsibilities of citizens by forming a fictitious nation. More than 6,500 aspiring young women have attended ALA Girls Nation since its inception in 1947. Each new class gathers to participate in compelling debates, run mock political campaigns, visit historical sites and have the chance to meet with their real life counterparts on Capitol Hill. "My most sacred memory from ALA Girls Nation was when I took down and folded the American flag," recalls 1991 participant Kate Kohler, a U.S. Army veteran who is now principal in the Washington, D.C. office of executive search firm Korn Ferry. "To me, it symbolizes not only freedom, but the impressive girls that I shared the experience with." ALA Girls Nation is a "leadership laboratory," as Kohler describes it. "In your life, you will have experiences where you realize we are all bound by the commonality of democracy. ALA Girls Nation was the first time in my life that I was able to be a part of this great experiment." For some girls, ALA Girls Nation is their

first opportunity to connect with peers with common interests. For others, it is the first time they encounter students whose perspective differs from their own. For all, it is a moment in time where similarities and differences come together to symbolize strength, democracy and freedom.

Jessie Heidlage was the first ALA Girls Nation senator selected from her high school in Claremore, Oklahoma. A member of FFA (Future Farmers of America), Heidlage presented legislation that would give government awards to farmers who employed environmentally friendly farming practices. "ALA Girls Nation was one of the hardest things I've ever experienced, but I knew in that week that my calling was something greater," Heidlage says. "Heidlage was invited back as a junior counselor in 2013 and again in 2014 as dean of junior counselors. Today she attends law school at The University of Oklahoma. "Seven days can really change the trajectory of your life," remarked Riya Patel, a 2012 alumna. "Meeting these diverse women and hearing about what they wanted to do with their lives pushed me into a new direction in my own life." Patel is a rising senior at Harvard University. She is currently interning with a team that offers financial advisory services for municipalities and aspires to pursue her interests in international trade and economic development in graduate business school. ALA Girls Nation alumnae have gone on to hold leadership roles in industries spanning government, media, education and law, and many have become high-ranking members of the military. Notable alumnae include Jane Pauley, national media personality; Susan Bysiewicz, Connecticut Secretary of State; Lt. Gen. Michelle Johnson, superintendent of the U.S. Air Force Academy and former Air Force aide to the President; Ann Richards, former governor of Texas; and Susan Porter-Rose, former chief of staff to First Lady Barbara Bush, among many others. ALA Girls Nation lasts for one short week. Yet, the seven-day experience with our legislative process and diverse minds from across the country has proven to be a strong foundation for thousands of bright futures.

Young women in the American Legion Auxiliary support veterans.

Cómo investigar y reducir los costos de la atención de la salud Por Nathaniel Sillin Practical Money Matters Ya sea que esté planeando un procedimiento futuro o explorando la atención después de una enfermedad repentina o accidente, los consumidores inteligentes ya tienen un plan en marcha para evitar los costos ocultos y errores de facturación comunes en nuestro sistema de salud en constante cambio. Usted también debe hacerlo. La Ley de Atención Asequible <http:// www.hhs.gov/healthcare/> (ACA) posibilita que todos los estadounidenses obtengan algún tipo de cobertura para la atención de la salud independientemente de su historial médico. Esa es una buena noticia. La mala noticia es que las circunstancias personales de salud de todo el mundo y las soluciones son diferentes, y aún estamos lejos del día en que la cobertura que compramos " ya sea individualmente o a través de nuestros empleadores " pueda impedirnos recibir facturas inesperadas por los servicios y procedimientos que nuestra aseguradora no cubre ni los errores cometidos en el proceso de facturación. Es también importante saber que muchas compañías de seguros de salud se están adaptando a la realidad de la cobertura universal mediante la reducción de la variedad de los médicos en sus redes, dejando a más pacientes en riesgo de facturas "sorpresa" <http://kff.org/private-insurance/issue-brief/ surprise-medical-bills/> si han sido tratados por médicos fuera de la red de su compañía de seguros. Hay algunos recursos útiles — tanto públicos como privados — que han surgido que marcan los precios de los procedimientos para la salud. El uso de esos recursos puede ayudar a evitar algunos de los gastos extra principales de atención de la salud. También es esencial determinar qué profesionales pueden estar dentro o fuera de la red, sobre todo si se trata de una emergencia.

Entonces, ¿qué se puede hacer para evitar estos costos de salud inesperados? Si no tiene Medicare, <https://www.medicare.gov/whatmedicare-covers/index.html> que suele tener precios y coberturas más estandarizados, es necesario preguntar a los profesionales (o sus departamentos de facturación) y comparar los precios de los procedimientos de la misma forma en que lo haría con cualquier compra importante. Según sus recursos médicos locales, puede tener la opción de realizar su investigación en línea. Éstas son algunas formas para comenzar: Conozca de qué manera está cubierto para situaciones de emergencia y de no emergencia. Es más fácil hacer planes para un reemplazo de cadera que necesitará en seis meses que para una cirugía de emergencia después de un accidente o enfermedad repentina, pero es importante pensar en cómo funciona su cobertura en ambas situaciones: • Emergencia: Las emergencias son un desafío para marcar el precio porque es muy difícil saber qué profesionales y qué servicios realmente se necesitan. La clave es hacer un plan para casos de emergencia. Hable con su compañía de seguros ahora "y consulte a su médico de cabecera" para confirmar que usted tiene una buena gama de los médicos de emergencia dentro de la red en el hospital de su elección. Si no es así, es posible que desee pensar en cambiar de plan durante su próximo período de inscripción. Ponga una tarjeta “en caso de emergencia” fácil de encontrar en su billetera al lado de su tarjeta de seguro de salud con su hospital preferido visible para los socorristas u otros ayudantes. Además, anote la información de contacto de su médico de cabecera y su poder para la atención de la salud. Por último, asegúrese de que la persona que designe en su poder de atención de la salud tenga acceso a su información de seguro y la red de médicos para que él o ella puede guiar su atención más asequible si usted está incapacitado.

• No emergencia: Si su médico recomienda un procedimiento particular en el hospital o ambulatorio en las próximas semanas o meses, usted tiene tiempo para planificar, así que hágalo. Consulte a su médico o a su departamento de facturación por el costo del procedimiento y qué otros profesionales (por ejemplo, un anestesiólogo) podrían estar involucrados. Luego pase el mismo tiempo hablando con su compañía de seguros acerca de lo que ha aprendido y cuánto tiempo estará cubierto el procedimiento en cuestión. Asegúrese de entender si su seguro cubre el procedimiento en un paciente hospitalizado (hospital) o ambulatorio (consultorio) " según los informes, algunas aseguradoras están reduciendo la cobertura ambulatoria Conozca sus deducibles La última encuesta anual de la Fundación Kaiser sobre beneficios para la salud del empleador indicó algunas cifras enormes para deducibles de atención de la salud: el total de gastos extra que tiene que pagar antes de que la mayor parte de su cobertura de salud surta efecto. Por ejemplo, si usted tiene un deducible de $ 3000 que no se ha tocado este año, esa es la cantidad inicial de gastos extra que tendrá que pagar por cualquier procedimiento grande. Tenga en cuenta esa cifra a medida que continúe su investigación sobre las opciones médicas. Es por eso que es importante mantener estas cantidades en un

fondo de emergencia o, si usted tiene la opción, separarla en una cuenta de ahorros de salud <https://www.irs.gov/publications/p969/ar02. html> donde pueda mantener los fondos no sólo para el deducible, sino también para otros posibles costos de gastos extra para la salud. Revise bien las facturas. Un estudio reciente informó errores significativos en las facturas médicas, en particular para las estadías en el hospital. Tenga en cuenta que el ejercicio de comparación de precios no se detiene en el camino a un procedimiento. Es necesario vigilar las facturas de previas y posteriores al procedimiento de los profesionales, los hospitales y su compañía de seguros de salud para determinar la exactitud. Si ve un error, póngase en contacto con la parte o partes apropiadas de inmediato para corregir el problema. Para concluir: Pocas industrias experimentan tantos cambios como la atención de la salud. La cobertura universal es buena, pero es importante saber exactamente que paga antes de necesitarla. Aparte tiempo para pensar en sus problemas de salud y hacer su investigación para ayudar a reducir los costos de salud que pueden afectar su presupuesto general. Aprender a ahorrar dinero ahora puede preservar su presupuesto en el futuro.

How to Get Kids to Drink More Water Suzanne Potter California News Service

functioning," she said. "It has no calories, no added sugar; it's healthy."

SAN FRANCISCO - A new study offers a simple solution for getting kids to drink more water in schools or child-care settings: Make it more convenient.

Water also helps fight obesity and cavities. A study done five years ago showed very few schools offer free water apart from their drinking fountains.

Researchers from the University of California at San Francisco did an intervention study in 12 middle schools, giving some schools cold-water pitchers and some a cold-water dispenser. Those came with cups, signage and announcements. The rest just had their normal drinking fountains. The findings? About 20 percent more kids drank water in schools that served it cold, with cups.

Patel said a recent federal law requires all school cafeterias to offer water free of charge. She said she hopes this study helps districts help their students make a healthier choice.

Dr. Anisha Patel, an assistant professor in the division of general pediatrics at UCSF's Benioff Children's Hospital, said it's an important finding, since most children don't drink enough H20.

A new study shows 20 percent more kids drink water at school if it is cold and offered with cups. (alvimann/morguefile)

"Hydration status is associated with how students perform in school, their cognitive

"This wasn't a very expensive intervention. It cost, over time, about 4 cents per student, per day," she said. "So that was an important finding from our study, because we know that a lot of schools are really struggling and don't have funding to implement new programs." Patel said many schools in California now are opting to install "filling stations" for reusable water bottles. The study is online at <https://www.cdc. gov/pcd/issues/2016/16_0108.htm>.

The Zika virus is causing devastating birth defects in countries with outbreaks of the virus. It also causes bad pregnancy outcomes, like miscarriage and stillbirth, and can cause serious neurologic problems as well. Zika is a virus primarily spread through mosquito bites, but unlike other mosquito-borne viruses such as dengue, it can also be spread through sex. If you are traveling abroad, first check the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s travel page (http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/ page/zika-information) to see if Zika is spreading in your planned destination. Zika virus is currently being spread in Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, the Pacific Islands, and parts of Africa. Because the virus can cause severe birth defects, CDC recommends that pregnant women do not travel to areas with Zika. If a pregnant woman must travel to an area with Zika, she should talk with her health care provider and strictly follow steps to prevent mosquito bites. Pregnant women also should be tested upon return to the United States. Male partners of pregnant women should consider the possibility that they could infect their partners via sex if they become infected. Men who travel to areas where Zika is spreading should take appropriate steps to prevent mosquito bites and either use condoms correctly every time they have sex during the pregnancy. Everyone should take precautions to prevent mosquito bites to avoid infection with Zika

virus, and to prevent further spread of the virus. To prevent mosquito bites, follow these precautions for at least three weeks after you return from travel:: •Wear Environmental Protection Agencyregistered insect repellent on exposed skin, at all times •Wear long pants and long-sleeved shirts •If you can, stay in air conditioned or screened-in rooms The symptoms of Zika include a fever, rash, joint pain, and red eyes. However, most people infected with Zika never have any symptoms, so do not assume you are not infected if you do not feel sick. We urge everyone to take precautions to prevent mosquito bites and to prevent the spread of Zika virus via sex. CDC recommends that women who have traveled to a country with Zika transmission wait at least eight weeks after returning home before trying to become pregnant, whether they have symptoms or not. Men who have traveled to areas where Zika is actively spreading and did not develop symptoms of Zika virus infection should use a condom or abstain from sex for at least eight weeks after returning from travel. The effects of Zika virus infection can be devastating. Knowing what to do to protect yourself from Zika will help you safely enjoy your trip abroad, and can help prevent Zika from spreading in the continental United States.

Teach Your Kids To Cook On Vacation NAPS

Cooking with your children can be a rewarding activity. It teaches them about nutrition, gives them a useful life skill, and exercises their knowledge of math and reading. It can be a lot of fun and give you a new way to bond as a family. It can also take time, and most people, when they come home from work, want to get dinner on the table as quickly as possible, and picking out child-friendly recipes and showing them how to be safe in the kitchen can add time they may not have to spare. That, and the rising popularity of vacation home rentals that feature kitchens, has led many families to use their vacation time as a chance to teach children these important skills. In fact, a recently released study from ¬Wynd¬ham Vacation Rentals reports that nearly one in three travelers think vacation is a good time to teach kids how to cook.

SETTING THE FOUNDATION When planning to teach your kids to cook on vacation, it pays to do your research ahead of time. 1.

Pick out some kid-friendly recipes online and print them out. Have your kids help with ideas.

2. Choose recipes that kids love to eat and keep it simple. Great options include pizza, smoothies, pancakes, omelets, chocolate chip cookies, and tacos. 3. On your first day, pick up the ingredients you’ll need for the week. Make a quick trip to the food store or farmer’s market. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that cooking some of your own meals on vacation can be a major budget helper: Vacationers report saving $898 a week by using the kitchen in their vacation rental home.

A RECIPE FOR SUCCESS After you’ve prepped the recipes and ingredients, the real fun of teaching and cooking can begin. Here are four tips to get you started. 1.

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For California Avocado Ice Cream

7

NAPS Summer is here! To beat the heat, many folks reach for a cold treat to cool themselves down. Ice cream has always been synonymous with summer, but now the “coolest” of indulgences can be found in a wide array of fun and innovative flavors, thanks in part to the growing trend of artisanal ice cream. From small batch ice creameries, to national dessert chains, to innovative home cooks, everyone has started to experiment with this traditional dessert. Now, many are working to create interesting flavor combinations and focus on using local and in-season ingredients. A flavor that is definitely on the rise is avocado ice cream. California avocados are now in peak season and lend a creamy base and a mild, nutty flavor that serves as the perfect platform to inspire your ice cream creativity, while contributing good fats and nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and beneficial nutrients. Add a dash of vanilla extract for a classic, clean scoop. For the more adventurous, experiment with a variety of toppings and even spices. Just in time for summer, Chef Jessica Koslow of SQIRL in Los Angeles developed a delectable California Avocado Cardamom Ice Cream that you can make at home. “Incorporating California avocados into ice cream is a no-brainer—the creaminess of the fruit lends itself so well to this traditional dessert, yet the innovative flavor combination puts a whole new twist on this dessert,” said Koslow.

California Avocado Cardamom Ice Cream Recipe created by Jessica Koslow of SQIRL for the California Avocado Commission Serves: 4 Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 40 minutes Total Time: 50 minutes 1½ tsp. cardamom seeds 3 ripe, fresh California avocados, seeded and peeled 1 cup organic sweetened condensed milk 1½ cups heavy cream ½ cup whole milk Instructions 1. Heat oven to 350° F. 2. Toast cardamom seeds for 5 minutes. 3. Grind cardamom in a spice grinder and set aside. 4. Place avocado, condensed milk, cream, milk, and ground cardamom seeds into a blender. Turn on to lowest setting and puree until smooth. 5. Transfer to an ice cream maker and freeze per machine’s instructions. Note: Large avocados are recommended for these recipes. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.

Serves: 8

Be patient: Remember, learning something new takes time—and on vacation, you have time.

2. Trust them with some of the important tasks: Have your kids do such things as putting the cheese on the pizza or rolling out cookie dough. They’ll feel they’re truly making something special. 3. Let them mess up and make a mess: Teach them how to do things differently but let them know it’s okay to make mistakes. Fight any urge to stop them from making a mess. It’s a part of the creative process, after all. 4. Talk about why people eat certain foods: This can be a great time to teach kids about why fruits and vegetables are so important. Talk about how these foods can help them grow strong and tall. You could be setting the foundation for a healthy relationship with food.

Gabriel Nuanez Special to El Observador

On the afternoon of Sunday July 10th, several protesters gathered together in front of City Hall, speaking out against police brutality and all the recent tragic events that have gone along with it. As a participant of the event, I've felt a great amount of the swirling emotions of those surrounding me while being there. Several signs were being held high with large bold fonts, reading statements such as "Black Lives Matter", "We Demand Justice", and "No More Blood On Blue Hands!". Everyone was quite emotional; sad, confused, but more specifically, angry. With megaphones in their hands, a handful of protesters spoke to the crowd, shouting how we the people need to come together as a group and prevent more tragic events, just as last week's deadly one's, from happening. As people continued to speak into the megaphones amongst the crowd, many began to unravel as they started including a great amount of profanity into what they were saying. Two San Jose Police Department deputies were watching from the atop the City Hall building, and with the microphones, protesters were cursing and swearing at them from below. It was not necessary to say all the harsh words directed towards these two police men. They weren't doing anything and were just observing. I think as the more violent the protest got verbally, more people wanted to speak out because everyone was pumped up. So, one of the crowd members asked to speak, and it just so happens he used to be a police officer for 8 years. Before he spoke, he thought he was going to get "boo'd" for speaking his thoughts. Well, it turns out he was actually supported by all those surrounding him. He mentioned

that in order for us to make a difference, "We need more of this." More of us getting together and speaking out for what we believe. In addition, he also stated that we need to "change the system" from the "inside out". Many seemed to agree, based on all the claps coming from the crowd. Further on into the protest, the loud and noisy group of protesters took their shouts to the streets. Everyone gathered in a large line, and began marching up East Santa Clara Street. Being right in the smack-middle of the street, all the cars passed slowly, with people honking their car horns for support, and pulling out their phones to snap a photo or video of all the action. All the loud shouts and yells coming from the group filled the streets with the repeated chant of "Hands Up, Don't Shoot". Shortly after, police vehicles began to pull up behind the marching protesters and spoke into their microphones, saying what was now happening on the street was illegal, and that they'd have to pull to the sidewalk. Of course, many shouted back and everyone kept on walking, ignoring the rules of the policemen. The crowd continued to walk up the street for a majority of the time. After looking back over the whole thing, I think a lot of the people getting involved in these protests are expressing themselves too violently. It seemed unnecessary with some of the things many of the young teens and adults were saying. But even with all that, I still enjoyed the whole event and it was quite the experience to witness everything and hear a great amount of the stories people shared to the crowd. I heard from Jazmin Lopez, one of the participating protesters, that one person was arrested toward the end. I was unable to see this happen. It's great that we come together as a community and join up for what we believe in, I just don't think it should be ending up in violence.

#STREAMINGHATE After a tumultuous week in this country’s race relations, the internet showcased the pain and reality of our division country’s history, Diamond Reynolds, Philando Castile's fiancée, live streamed on Facebook Live the moments after a traffic stop and shooting by police took place. It was gruesome and unrelenting, but real and as it happened. The events surrounding what occurred before and after the stream is under investigation but to the thousands of people watching, a black man was dying in front of them after what was meant to be a broken taillight warning. It was the only thing they could react to. Videos streamed online of two officer-involved shootings and the massacring of five policemen last week pushed race relations to the edge.

Arturo Hilario El Observador If Martin Luther King Jr. had access to the tech we have now, how would he use it as a tool to help Civil Rights Movement? How about going back to the 1930’s and the rise of Adolf Hitler? Technology has allowed us to travel the universe and connect to people and groups with devices that fit in the palm of our hands. It has also taught us the ugliness of the world and helped likeminded individuals, both those with positive intentions and those in pursuit of ostracizing or dividing, to unite and become echo-chambers of their beliefs. On July 7th, 2016 Dallas Micah Johnson, a U.S. Military veteran, ended a peaceful anti-violence protest with a sniper rifle. The attack left 5 police officers dead and civilians wounded. This came a mere 2 days after Alton Sterling was killed by police in Baton Rouge Louisiana, and just a day after Philando Castile was killed in Falcon Heights, Minnesota. These previous events were the boiling point to the commencement of the marches and protests, and ultimately the straw to Johnson’s violent actions. All these events and their aftermath were streamed through social media. Apps like Twitter’s Periscope, and Facebook Live, where live streaming videos can be shared with anyone, were used to capture the reactions of the people at these disturbing events.

The graphic video begins with Diamond’s shocked face in full view of the camera, as she is hunched to one side of the car while saying “stay with me, we got pulled over for a busted taillight.” The screen moves over to a dying Philando, blood stained across the right side of his torso. The officer, whose arms we see while holding his service weapon towards the passenger side of the car, frantically screams, “F*@k! I told him not to reach for it!”. Emotions run high for the two, while Philando’s shallow breathing can be heard in the background as he slouches over to one side. The original video has 5.7 million views. Just the day before another smartphone captured and uploaded a video of Alton Sterling being pinned down and shot after it is revealed he might have been reaching for a gun. In this case people after the video was uploaded could relive those troubling final moments as well. In Dallas, after a rally was broken up by gunfire from Dallas Police and Micah Johnson, multiple live streams could be followed of what was happening live through Twitter’s Periscope video streaming app. One streamer was high above the chaos in an apartment building overlooking the intersection where the shooter and police were playing cat and mouse. When the bomb that killed Johnson went off, the streamer exclaimed something akin to, “a bomb or something just went off”. All the while thousands of people could access this, becoming part of this tragedy. The tools of social media have allowed us to become more interconnected, but at the same time we become live witnesses to events which in the past we’d have to be there physically or watch through television or radio updates. As the way we consume our news continues to blur with everyday people with the ultimate tool to communicate in their purses or pockets, we can only hope it opens our collective eyes to what we should do to stop these events from happening whether it includes federal support or simply a broader understanding of our fellow human beings.

In years past there has been viral videos of violence whose frames have have been etched into people’s memories. From the grainy video footage of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, (which just happened to be a few hundred yards from the Dallas shooting), to the Columbine High School security camera footage which showed Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris shooting classmates and again when we the world watched the almost slow motion collapse of the World Trade Center. Those videos became the focus of media at the time, and were easy to find in some way or form through the internet after that. Now though, the internet, in all its wonder and possibilities, allows us to see good and bad in real time, more often through our vertical device screens as well as on desktop’s. The advent of specific mobile applications like Skype, Periscope,Instagram and Snapchat, it goes on and on. All of these apps offer the ability to post either videos and photos immediately. In the case of live streaming, Facebook Live and Periscope offered the first hand accounts of last week’s brutal scenes of violence in America. In what is being called the first live stream of the direct aftermath of a police shooting in this

CA Will No Longer Target Estates of Many Medi-Cal Recipients

Suzanne Potter CALIFORNIA NEWS SERVICE SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Advocates for seniors are speaking out to draw attention to the Medi-Cal Estate Recovery Act, recently signed by Governor Jerry Brown. It reverses a long standing policy of the state to put liens on any property certain Medi-Cal patients leave behind. Pam Cortina, who is on Medi-Cal and fighting two forms of cancer, says the change is a huge relief. "You know, here I am, I was already sick with two very severe illnesses, and I couldn't work," she relates. "And, plus, the burden of me sitting here and thinking, 'OK, it's everything that I've worked for, my heirs would not get.'"

The old policy targeted the assets of the very poor and brings in about $30 million a year to state coffers.

Cortina says it is unfair because it only applied to very low-income people over the age of 54, and not to younger people on Medi-Cal, to people who get state subsidies to afford a Covered California plan - or to seniors on Medicare. Linda Nguy, a policy associate with the Western Center on Law and Poverty, says the state will also no longer be able to send the heirs a bill for the fee Medi-Cal paid the health plan each month - about $600 - regardless of whether the patient ever used the medical services. So, she says, people needn't shy away from Medi-Cal. "It has been a barrier," she states, "that people have chosen not to enroll in Medi-Cal, to just forgo having health insurance, even though they do qualify." The state still will recover costs from the estates of Medi-Cal patients who needed nursing home care, as required by federal law. The new law goes into effect Jan. 1.

New Racial Profiling Board Meets for First Time

Suzanne Potter CALIFORNIA NEWS SERVICE LOS ANGELES - In a week where news of police shootings of black men in Louisiana and Minnesota has filled the airwaves, California is taking concrete steps to fight racial profiling - with the first meeting of the new Racial and Identity Profiling Advisory Board in Los Angeles, which happened late last week. The board was established by state Attorney General Kamala Harris, through legislation passed last fall. The same bill also requires officers to record the perceived racial and identity profiles of every person they stop by 2018.

Suvor said the goal is to come up with training programs that can restore the relationship of trust between law-enforcement agencies and the communities they serve. Daniel Silard, who serves on the new board, is president of the Rosenberg Foundation, a nonprofit group that focuses on civil rights and criminal justice. He said he is hopeful about the board's potential to make improvements. "The diversity of folks represents a pretty powerful cross-section of law enforcement, and academics and clergy, and civil rights leaders and community leaders, who would be advocating for sufficient resources behind this effort," he said.

Daniel Suvor, chief of policy for Harris, said the board will decide how to make the best use of that data.

The board is tasked with drafting regulations on how the traffic stop data will be reported, and will produce an annual report on California's progress in eliminating racial profiling.

"Infusing data and metrics into this conversation will bring about accountability and transparency," he said, "because we know how bias is destructive to trust, and debilitating for a lot of communities of color."

The meeting was open to the public and took place at the Ronald Reagan State Building, 300 S. Spring St., in Los Angeles. More information can be found at <oag. ca.gov>.

CA Farmworkers' Advocates Rally Against Pesticides Near Schools Suzanne Potter CALIFORNIA NEWS SERVICE

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - About 150 farmworkers' families and their advocates rallied last week in front of the California state PEA office in Sacramento. The groups are concerned with the toxicity of pesticides applied near schools, and say they've been waiting for the Department of Pesticide Regulation to act after it held community meetings on several proposals last year.

to county. Some have a quarter of a mile protection zone, but only for certain pesticides. Some have systems to notify schools and parents when spraying will occur, while others do not. Advocates for farmworkers, some seen here at a workshop on pesticides in June 2015, say CalEPA hasn't done enough to regulate pesticide spraying near schools. (Californians for Pesticide Reform)

Valerie Gorospe, a community advocate with the Center on Race, Poverty and the Environment, said studies have linked pesticide spraying to serious illness, and it disproportionately affects Latino children.

Angel Garcia, a community organizer with El Quinto Sol de America in Tulare County, said kids should be protected from pesticides that are in both the restricted and non-restricted categories.

"There are pesticides that cause cancer, that do neurological damage to developing bodies," she said. "We've seen skin diseases; and asthma is definitely something that a lot of our children, especially in the San Joaquin Valley, deal with on a daily basis."

"The main 'ask' at the state level is to create a one-mile buffer zone around schools when children or families, or school-sponsored activity is happening," he said. He said current regulations vary from county

Gorospe said the Department of Pesticide Regulation is also considering changing the so-called "banking system" for pesticides so the amount farmers are allowed in a given year can't be rolled over into the following year.

Have environmentalists started using Virtual Reality (VR) for their cause? Roddy Scheer & Doug Moss EARTHTALK Virtual Reality (VR) is no doubt the hottest thing in electronics and entertainment today, with “immersive” 360-degree experiences increasingly available via the click of a mouse or tap of a screen. And while it’s hardly a replacement for getting out into nature and experiencing life itself, environmental advocates are starting to use VR as a tool to help everyday people appreciate the natural world around them and the environmental challenges we face as global citizens. One of this trend’s leading lights is Stanford University’s Virtual Human Interaction Lab (VHIL), which works to “design, test and distribute virtual reality interventions that teach the concept of empathy.” “Virtual reality can give everyone, regardless of where they live, the kind of experience needed to generate the urgency required to prevent environmental calamity,” Stanford professor Jeremy Bailenson told Yale Environment 360. “One of the greatest challenges to staving off irrevocable climate change isn't simply getting buy-in from skeptical politicians—it’s getting people to visualize how driving a gas-guzzling car or living in an energy inefficient home is contributing to a problem that may only manifest itself completely in future decades.” Earlier this year the lab unveiled a short VR documentary and interactive VR game to help explain ocean acidification, a slow-motion and hard-to-explain process whereby excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere dissolves in the ocean, upping acidity levels and altering marine habitats accordingly.

Yale Environment 360 reports that VR is also now being used more often in academic circles and to support policy initiatives, such as to create 3D representations of pollution or other human impacts. Not to be outdone, famed nature filmmaker David Attenborough has kicked off a new series of VR nature films by documenting a recent dive expedition into Australia’s Great Barrier Reef in VR. Attenborough hopes to spark interest in protecting nature and wildlife by producing and distributing VR experiences that entertain and educate viewers through immersing them in some of the world’s most iconic environments. Given the popularity of VR and the increasingly lower costs of producing content, we can expect to see many more immersive experiences to stir up enthusiasm for reducing our environmental impact and protecting vanishing nature and wildlife.

Google Expeditions, a VR educational program from the Internet giant, has shared sections of VHIL’s ocean acidification documentary with over a million school children around the world as part of its beta release, and will likely reach many more as the program is rolled out to new audiences in coming months. One of VHIL’s earlier experiments asked participants to either read a description of the experience of cutting down a tree, or to chop down a virtual tree using VR. “In following tests, those that took part in the VR simulation reduced their usage of paper products by 20 percent in comparison to those who did not,” reports the Triple Pundit blog. “In another experiment, test subjects were asked to virtually eat coal while bathing in order to fully understand the amount of resources they require to enjoy a hot shower.”

On June 27, 2015, in a landmark opinion, Obergefell v. Hodges, The US Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriage is a legal right across the United States. Gay and lesbian couples already could marry in 36 states and the District of Columbia. The court's 5-4 ruling means the remaining 14 states, in the South and Midwest, will have to stop enforcing their bans on same-sex marriage. Previously, the U.S. Supreme Court had issued two landmark cases on June 26, 2013 which had a direct impact on gay & same-sex couples' immigration rights. Hollingsworth v. Perry, which arose out of California's Prop 8 measure, and addressed the issue of whether the U.S. Constitution

bars California from limiting marriage to unions of one man and one woman. In United States v. Windsor, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments regarding a challenge of the federal government's denial of benefits and tax advantages to legally married same-sex couples under the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). After hearing oral arguments, the Supreme Court ruled DOMA to be unconstitutional entitling married same sex couples to the same federal benefits as opposite-sex married couples. Now with the Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, gay and lesian couples have the right to marry in any State and pursue immigration benefits for loved ones. We will continue to keep you apprised on the very latest immigration news around the country.

CELEBRITY FORMER FOOTBALL PLAYERS EMPOWERING YOUTH Kaira Espinoza SPECIAL TO EL OBSERVADOR

On the clear, brisk morning of Friday, July 8th, 2016, more than 300 youth- ranging in age from 9 to 13 years old- enthusiastically participated in the NFL Play 60 Character Camp held at the Raiders Training Facility. The camps were created 5 years ago by Hall of Famer, former NFL (Cincinnati Bengals) player Anthony Munoz and his son, Michael Munoz (who also played for the NFL). The key focus of these energetic athletic camps is to encourage kids to be physically active at least 60 minutes each day. Complete with water stations, high energy music booming from speakers, and a couple Raiderettes, the kids had all the encouragement to give their best!

Indeed, kids were very receptive to the camp activities, which included catching and passing the football; working in pairs; navigating obstacle courses; and practicing professional football techniques of handing-off and protecting the football.

It is rare to see Founders of such organizations actually at local events, but Anthony and Michael were very happy to be there, sharing their messages of health and fitness with the young participants, and had such down-toearth, approachable personalities for the media interviews. Observing Anthony speaking to the kids, encouraging them to make good decisions- both on and off the football field- his genuine spirit shines bright. Asked how it feels to see these camps he created in action, Anthony responded, “When I see these kids out here, learning the game and really enjoying it, it’s nice-it’s really nice!” After knowing firsthand what these types of camps had on his own development and seeing the positive impact his Play 60 camps had in Cincinnati, he became determined to expand these camps on a national and international level. Since 2012, more than 50 camps have been implemented across the country, impacting over 20,000 kids. Most recently, they also held Play 60 character camps in Mexico.

THE VIDEO SELFIE THAT CHANGED THE WORLD

Shelly Palmer Today, there are over 2 billion ordinary people carrying social network–connected video cameras. Notwithstanding what you’re hearing from talking heads on TV, this is not new news. The number of smartphones is racing toward 3 billion, and the trajectory and pace of this technological change are well understood. What is far less understood is the impact ~2 billion social network–connected, video-enabled smartphones will have on how we live our lives in the 21st century. Press a Button, Go Live Worldwide Facebook Live empowers any of Facebook’s ~1.5 billion registered users, with a video-enabled device, to broadcast live from anywhere, anytime they are connected to Facebook. (You can do it right now: open your Facebook app, tap the “What’s on your mind?” box, tap the Live Video icon and follow the directions.) This is real-time video capture and distribution on an unprecedented scale. Live video is very different from pre-recorded video. It’s harder to fake, and by definition it’s happening in real time. From an audience’s point of view, live video selfies captured with frontfacing smartphone cameras are significantly different from the wide-screen vistas captured with the higher-resolution rear-facing cameras. The nature of the lenses on smartphones, the vertical aspect ratio and the intimate arm’s-length distance between you, the people close enough to be in your frame, and the audience has created a new storytelling genre capable of communicating in ways we have not seen before. Lavish “Diamond” Reynolds There is nothing I can tell you about Diamond Reynolds’ video selfie of the death of Philando Castile that has not been written

about or discussed in the media – except that this heartbreaking documentary is not the last video selfie of its kind; it is one of the first – the sheer scale of Facebook Live guarantees it. A New Era of Documentary Journalism In the 60’s, television brought the horrors of the Viet Nam War into our living rooms. In the late 70’s, a new kind of daily broadcast network news program, “Nightline,” evolved from the Iran Hostage Crisis. In 1991, the Gulf War changed our relationship with 24-hour cable news. If you are of a certain age, you might remember CNN correspondent Bernard Shaw hiding under a desk while reporting the bombing of Baghdad from the Al-Rashid Hotel. I had never seen high-quality, color video of a city being attacked from the air, and I’ll never forget it. A few years later, the live helicopter shots of the 90-minute, lowspeed OJ Simpson “white Ford Bronco chase” seemed to redefine our expectations of video coverage. Over 95 million people watched it live, but you had to be in front of a TV to see it. Each new video technology has brought a new communications paradigm with it. From the handycam used to capture the beating of Rodney King in 1991 to the 2014 smartphone video of the death of Eric Garner to the most recent terrorist attacks in Orlando and around the world, images captured by ordinary people with actioncams, camera drones and, of course, camera phones and smartphones have been part of our daily video experience. But by the time most people see these videos, they have been filtered through the mainstream media — edited into professionally produced stories with supporting graphics and added commentary. The images may be captured by citizen journalists, they may have originally been shot live and in real time, but more often than not, they are endlessly looped on 24hour cable news outlets and presented with a distinctive editorial

point of view. If you need some examples, search any topic in this writing on Google or YouTube. The vast majority of results will be copies of video packages from various TV news outlets. Periscope and Meerkat foreshadowed the potential of democratized real-time video, but nothing has prepared us for the potential of Facebook Live. Now, everything you do in the presence of others can be made public instantly and, if it is interesting enough, can become viral in ways that are not yet understood. Are there more fistfights today than there were yesterday? Or just more videos of them? More traffic accidents? More gun violence deaths? More of anything you can think of? Or just more video coverage? Is the world actually more dangerous today than it was yesterday, or are we just now finding out how dangerous the world actually is? I don’t think we can understand or appreciate the impact of “at scale” unfiltered video journalism on our psychological well-being or on our civilization writ large. But we’ll find out soon enough. US Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis once famously wrote, “Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants,” which would lead us to believe that more open and transparent communication will bring us to a better place. Let’s hope so.

THIRD ANNUAL LATINO CONSERVATION WEEK Joshua Tree National Park will host one of 18 events statewide for Latino Conservation Week. Photo Courtesty: timotale/iStockphoto

Suzanne Potter EL OBSERVADOR

at latinoconservationweek.com.

JOSHUA TREE, Calif. - The third annual Latino Conservation Week starts Saturday and runs through July 23, and its backers want everyone to get outside and enjoy California's open spaces. There are 18 separate events planned across the state, including six in the southern California desert, where President Obama created three new national monuments in February. Maite Arce, president and chief executive of the Hispanic Access Foundation, said the movement is growing nationally every year. "We started with 17 partners, 17 events," she said. "The second year, the number of events grew to 52, and this year we already have about 100 partners." Arce said the events also celebrate the Latino community's role in pushing to designate the new Mojave Trails, Sand to Snow and Castle Mountain national monuments. Park managers nationwide are teaming up with local groups to draw families out to experience their public lands. A full list of events is online

Leoda Valenzuela, program manager for the Council of Mexican Federations in North America, said a big priority for her group is developing Latino leaders to carry on the cause. "There's not a lot of awareness in our communities about these open spaces," she said, "so we seek to create that awareness and involve people in outings, hikes, and also in the stewardship of these lands." Pastor Frank Ruiz of the Spanish Seventh Day Adventist Church in Indio said the goal of "Por la Creacion." the faith-based alliance he co-founded, is to strengthen his community's ties to the land. "Once they experience the richness of the desert, of nature," he said, "they're going to want to experience it again and again and again." Some of the sites of California events include Joshua Tree National Park, Tijuana Slough, the Santa Monica Mountains, the Ballona Wetlands and a nature trail in Modesto.
