THEY DID 'WHAT'S RIGHT' FOR ALL OF US!!! WHAT IS RIGHT FOR ALL OF US!

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR EO's 'Certificate of Appreciation' will be mailed to those three REPUBLICAN SENATORS 'WHO DID WHAT IS RIGHT FOR ALL OF US' when all three voted NAY to the proposed legislation which would begin to establish an undefined 'TrumpCare' program projected to deny basic health care services to 32 million Americans while continuing to grant more tax benefits to those already ultra-wealthy. Just to remind everyone, when the Senate Majority Leader placed that Tr umpCare leg islation up for its up or down vote in the U.S. Senate last Thursday (07.27.17), 51 votes were required to pass that proposed legislation. All 48 Democratic Senators voted against the legislation whose main purpose was to 'repeal and replace' the 2010 Affordable Care Act (also known as ObamaCare). This ACA legislation was ena c ted dur ing 2010 follow ing public debate and hearings and w ith America's f irst AfricanAmerican President seated in the White House's Oval Office as CEO/CIC. Since the ACA became the 'law of the land', Republicans have been focused upon limiting former President Obama to one term (they failed because “We, The People” re-elec ted him) A N D vowed to REPEAL AND REPLACE OBAMACARE (and they failed again!... despite having 'control' of the White House, the House of Representatives, and THE SENATE!!!). All because three stalwart members of the Republican Party decided to DO

Those three (3) Republican 'NAY' votes are: Susan Collins, R-Maine; Lisa Murkowsk i, R-A la ska , and John McCain, RA r izona . These three elected officials, did what the Founding Fathers projected when they developed the system of 'CHECKS AND BALANCES' which is embedded into the U.S. Constitution when endorsed on July 4, 1776. The basic human trait they counted upon was that individuals are basically logical, sympathetic, compassionate, and responsible in Doing unto others what you would have them do unto you. These three principled individuals examined their basic values and decided to do the right thing for all of us. These three Senators understood that they became elected off icials because they wanted to craft public policy which did the greatest good for the greatest number. Their suppor tive constituents must ensure that they all become re-elected because the 'forces of self-interest' will organize their DARK MONEY funded efforts to oppose their re-election. It is the massive number of 'silent majority voters' who must ensure that they become involved, engaged and committed to putting an end to the forces of the inf luential powers who use DARK MONEY to achieve their mercenary goals. Un for t u n a t e l y, s i nc e 1975 union membership has declined and their c ol le c t ive ba r g a i n i ng rights cur tailed. A lso, automation has increased productivity while employment levels remained level (static). Health care insurance coverage must

The answer is what Senator Bernie Sanders calls “Medicare-for-a ll ”. He plans to introduce legislation whose goal is to guide this nation towards comprehensive health care coverage of all residents of America.

receives federal funds to underwrite those insurance policies provided to the low income or impoverished clients. Hospitals have been subsidized (HillBurton Act) to encourage building facilities in rural underserved areas (which has not happened). Big Pharma charges more for their prescription drugs sold domestically which is why those who are near the Mexican or Canadian borders, cross the border to purchase the identical drugs at lower prices.

Many, who cur rently have profitable positions and entitlements, are ver y much against any changes. These include 'Big Pharma' (prescription drug industry); durable medical equipment; Hospital Chains; Nursing Homes; and many more.

The American taxpayer, following his/her Christian values, practice being a Good Samaritan. They have been generous when supporting the medical research which initiated many developments which the private sector has monetized to their benefit.

We, The People must internalize the reality that through public financing of government agencies such as the National Science Foundation; National Institutes of Health, and the Center for Communicable Diseases, many developmental investments have been underwritten with our tax revenues.

If a “Universal health care system, single payer system” is established, then many of these 'private sector firms' will have to accept lower profit margins.

become independent of employment. Already too many folks have three or four part-time jobs which enables the employer to not have to provide health insurance coverage as a benefit.

An unfortunate my th is that the private sector has made investments leading to the development of the world's best medical care & services delivery system. Not so...and this becomes very evident when the subsidies, tax credits, shortened depreciation tax write-offs, and tax avoidance efforts which take advantage of loopholes. A ll of these corporate welfare items need to be curtailed or subjected to 'sunset periods'. The main opponents to the Medicare-for-All approach are all those who receives subsidies now. These include the Health Insurance industry which

A goal is to lower the expenditure of $10,000 per year per person for health care services down to a much lower level which is reasonable and sustainable. Those 'Nay' votes by Senators Susan Collins, R-Maine; Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, and John McCain, R-A rizona, have forced continued public policy discussions that special interests do not want at all. Senator Bernie Sanders (email dated 07.31.17) c or r e c t l y a nt ic ip a t e s “Our goal is to create a rational, cost-ef fective health care system. Today in the United States, we are spending almost $10,000 a year per person on health care. This is absurd and unsustainable.”

“Our goal is to put health care dollars into disease prevention and the provision of health care, not insurance company profits, not outrageous salaries for health industry CEOs, not advertising, not billing, not lobbying or campaign contributions.” “Our goal is to move this country to a Medicare-forall, single-payer system.” “Let me be clear. This will be an enormously difficult and prolonged struggle, and one which will require the efforts of tens of millions of A mericans in every state in this country. It will, in fact, require a political revolution in which the American people participate in the political process in a way that we have not seen in the recent history of our democracy.” “In order to pass a Medicare-for-all, single payer system we will be taking on the most powerful special interests in the country: Wall Street, the insurance companies, the drug companies, the corporate media, the Republican Party and the establishment wing of the Democratic Party. In opposition to our efforts there will be a never-ending barrage of TV ads, editorials, political attacks and lies.” “If we are going to be successful in this struggle, we have got to be smart – very smart. Not only do we need strong legislation (which I will be offering shortly and an outline of which I will be sending to you), but we need an unprecedented organizing and educational campaign.” It behooves “We, The People” to become fully involved, engaged, and committed since DARK MONEY cannot buy us all off. Let's become INDEPENDENT in our own best interests. Like those three Senators, let's do the right thing for all of us.

UNA HISTORIA DE ÉXITO ESCOLAR Mission College ofrece programas y clases para ayudar a avanzar la carrera

Rosa Sosa. Photo Credit: Mission College

Rosa Sosa emigró al área de la bahía desde México a la edad de 16 años, quería aprender inglés y encontró Mission College, o tal vez, Mission College la encontró a ella. Sosa acredita su carrera educativa y profesional a Mission College, por los amigos que ella hizo, las personas que conoció y el personal con el que interactúo. Ella no lo hubiera logrado sin el colegio comunitario de Santa Clara, pero aprender inglés no fue fácil. "Es muy intimidante cuando tu  no eres de aquí o cuando te sientes como una persona rara parada en un salón."- Dijo Sosa "Incluso si no entiendes lo que la persona esta diciendo, solo pregunta, ¿Por favor, podrías repetir la pregunta?” Cada dia, la confianza continuó creciendo. Sosa tomó clases en gramática básica, pronunciación y practica de conversación con grupos pequeños y grandes, también trabajó en su lectura y vocabulario. Los instructores de Mission College le ayudaron en cada paso de su carrera. Internacional Center resultó ser un recurso importante, dándole su primer trabajo como asistente de oficina. "Después de un semestre, pasé el examen de inglés y luego, ellos me ofrecieron una oferta para quedarme en el colegio y comenzar a trabajar en mi titulo." Dijo Sosa. Con estas bases, Mission College se convirtió en un hogar. "Estaba muy apegada al campus cuando llegue aquí. Yo estaba aquí todos los días, Mission College creyó en mi desde el momento en que entre por la puerta.”- Dijo Sosa. Después de obtener su titulo técnico en Mission College, ella se transfirió a San Jose State donde recibió su licenciatura. Este mes de Mayo, ella recibirá su maestría

de la Universidad Embry-Ridle en Arizona y recientemente aceptó una posición en Pinkerton como una Counter Terrorism Threat Analyst (Analista de Amenazas Contra el Terrorismo) en Virginia donde se concentrara en amenazas a los países latinoamericanos. Sosa le da crédito a Mission College por ayudarla a dar ese primer paso. "Tener una base sólida me ayudo a navegar diferentes opciones y diferentes carreras. Es un gran lugar para comenzar y después buscar muchas oportunidades diferentes." – Dijo Sosa Para mas información sobre los programas de ESL en Mission College y otros cursos relacionados a negocios, trabajar en hoteles y restaurantes, enfermería y otros campos emocionantes, visite missioncollege. edu o esl.missioncollege.edu En el Welcome Center de Mission College, Admisiones, Consejería y Ayuda Financiera hablan español y están listos para ayudarte a ser exitoso.

NOT ON MEDICAID? YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOL MIGHT BE sources of funding to support children with disabilities as required under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Children with special needs frequently have complex plans for medically necessary accommodations, as well as treatment; the Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic, and Treatment benefit, which is funded by Medicaid, is one important source of funds that supports case management (coordination of care) for these children.

Kristen Harper and David Murphey Child Trends

On July 30th, 52 years ago, President Lyndon Johnson signed Medicaid into law. As the program’s anniversary approaches this weekend, and Congress continues to debate its future, it may be unclear to many—especially those who are not Medicaid beneficiaries—how significant changes to Medicaid might affect them. In 2015, 15 percent of U.S. adults ages 19 through 64 received health insurance coverage through Medicaid. However, a much larger proportion of our nation’s school-aged population—nearly 30 percent of children ages 6 through 19—receive health insurance through Medicaid. That’s 15.2 million children. With more than 15 million kids eligible for Medicaid support, there’s a fair chance your neighborhood school relies on Medicaid to provide critical services—from school nurses, vision and hearing screenings, and immunizations, to mental health counseling, health education, and referrals to other community-based services. According to the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities, nearly $4 billion in school-based health services were paid for by Medicaid in 2015. Even when children are not direct recipients of Medicaid funding, the services Medicaid

supports may be key to supporting their school’s activities related to substance use and violence prevention, and other initiatives that reach the broader student population. Because schools can claim reimbursement under Medicaid for allowable services provided to eligible students, as well as for a portion of their costs for administering these programs even when they are offered without charge to all students (an example is vision and hearing screening), Medicaid funding makes school-wide services more affordable. Further, these dollars allow schools to spend their limited resources on other priorities. It’s important to note that the services Medicaid

supports can address a wide range of issues beyond students’ physical health. Services related to dropout prevention are one example. This month, the U.S. Department of Education released an issue brief that covered the prevalence of dropout prevention strategies in high schools across the nation. Two of the strategies covered— wraparound services and school-based health centers—often use Medicaid support to deliver mental health screening and primary medical care. Shifts in the Medicaid program might also impact schools’ ability to adequately serve children with special needs. In the absence of these dollars, schools may be forced to find other

It would be a mistake to make assumptions about which neighborhood schools, and which children, depend on Medicaid. While our nation’s schools continue to be socioeconomically and racially segregated, school-aged Medicaid recipients span racial and ethnic groups—33 percent are white, 22 percent are black, and 36 percent are Hispanic. Further, low-poverty schools are nearly as likely to offer the kind of supplemental services that are often funded through Medicaid: they are nearly as likely to offer at least one social service (94 percent) as high-poverty schools (97 percent), and only somewhat less likely to offer services on campus (74 vs. 81 percent, respectively). (The breakdown in Medicaid support for high-poverty schools vs. low-poverty schools is not readily available.) As the debate over Medicaid continues, we should consider the role the program plays in the overall well-being of the young members of our community—including the young people in our lives.

EXPERTA EN SALUD RECETA COMIDA FRESCA COMO “PRIMERA” MEDICINA

Aug. 18 & Sept. 15 - Cookin’ the Market Watch seasonal recipes come to life and sample the results (11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.)

Eric Tegethoff/Alfonso LópezCollada Public News Service GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. – Los Centros Familiares de Salud de la Montaña de Colorado animan a las familias a que agreguen la “primera medicina” de la naturaleza a su vida diaria: frutas y vegetales frescos. Los expertos en materia de salud recomiendan comer cinco porciones cada día, y que tres cuartos de lo que haya en el plato sean granos, frutas, verduras y legumbres. Mientras los legisladores del país siguen luchando para tratar el tema del aumento de costos de la salud y las opciones de cobertura, los Centros Familiares de Salud de la Montaña de Colorado (“Colorado's Mountain Family Health Centers”) promueven un enfoque preventivo para la buena salud: consumir mejores alimentos y más frecuentemente. Jenny Lang, practicante de enfermería familiar en los Centros Familiares de Salud de la Montaña (“Mountain Family Health Centers”) dice que una dieta saludable - es decir evitar la comida procesada y comer más frutas y verduras - estimula el sistema inmunológico, combate el cáncer y las infecciones, y ayuda a mantener el peso correcto. “Y eso te da energía buena. Ya sabes, si no tiene buenas fuentes de energía la gente se siente cansada, la gente se siente desmotivada; no tiene energía

para salir y ser activa.” Lang ha estado preguntando a los niños durante visitas de bienestar cuál es su fruta o su verdura favorita y la última vez que la comieron, y muchos padres dicen que sus pequeños sólo comen comida fresca unas cuantas veces a la semana. Lang dice que sus pacientes frecuentemente se sorprenden de saber que niños y padres deberían comer cinco porciones de frutas y verduras al día. Jenny Lang anima a la gente a evitar la comida ultra procesada –como las comidas congeladas, papas fritas y refrescos– cuanto sea posible. Agrega que la comida “chatarra” es normalmente alta en sal y grasa, y al cuerpo le cuesta más trabajo procesarla. Está convencida de que la buena comida realmente debiera ser la primera medicina.

“Desde zanahorias hasta brócoli o arándano, entre más colorida más nutritiva –o rica en antioxidantes– será esa comida.” Lang dice que una barrera común para muchos de sus pacientes es que no saben cómo preparar la comida fresca en casa. Recomienda la página de internet ‘choosemyplate.gov’, que tiene consejos para cocinar, sugerencias para servir y otras herramientas para ayudar a que las familias tengan el combustible que necesitan para tener una mejor salud.

DOWNTOWN'S BIG NEWS: WHAT IT MEANS - AND DOESN'T

Google is somehow "getting something" from the City, for which the public must "get something" in return. In addition, the public will have the benefit of transparency to scrutinize every element of the deal before the Council votes on any land sale, memorandum of understanding, development agreement, and zoning changes. 3. Housing Affordability

Photo Credit: Office of Mayor Sam Liccardo Mayor Sam Liccardo Dear Friends,

Throughout the extraordinary growth of the last two decades, Silicon Valley cities to our north and west have hosted expansions of global headquarters of the world's largest tech brands Apple, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, and the like. San Jose's Downtown has consistently played the unrequited suitor, however, with a diminutive employment base relative to other city centers, and lacking the residential density needed to sustain retail, restaurants, and other small businesses. In the last decade, we've seen Downtown's challenges exacerbated by two more blows: first, the Great Recession, which hollowed more than 30% of Downtown's street frontage as retail tenants became insolvent; and second, the California legislature's elimination of redevelopment agencies, the primary source of public investment in city centers. As a result, during my tenure as Downtown's Councilmember, we became more resourceful and deployed what I call a "Small is Beautiful" strategy (with credit to EF Schumacher) moving beyond the era of large Redevelopment Agency expenditures. We focused instead on eliminating barriers to small businesses. We reduced parking fees in public garages for new commercial tenants, waived permit fees for tenant improvements of vacant groundfloor storefronts, eased permit requirements for restaurants to launch outdoor "curb cafes," and encouraged facilities like NextSpace and WeWork to accommodate more co-working and freelancing. We also rolled up our sleeves with key partners to make "big bets" that would lay the groundwork for Downtown's revival: working with Carl Guardino and the Silicon Valley Leadership Group on ballot measures to bring BART to Downtown and expand CalTrain capacity; supporting Tom McEnery and Martin Menne's launch of the San Pedro Market; and reducing fees and expediting permit processing on high-rise residential development to persuade reluctant project sponsors to move forward. Today, with these continued efforts and those advanced under the tenure of current Councilmember Raul Peralez, Downtown has begun to emerge. Construction has completed or begun on several new high-rise residential towers, and retail storefronts continue to fill. Downtown now boasts more than 120 tech companies, including both start-ups and fast-growing gazelles like Zoom, Cohesity, and Okta.

the WeWork offices on Santa Clara Street. In early June, Council voted to begin negotiations with Google for the sale of several City-owned parcels in the area surrounding Diridon Station that would comprise part of a 6 to 8 million square feet development with office, research, residential, and retail space. And just a few weeks ago, Adobe announced the large expansion of its headquarters on San Fernando Street, adding another 3,000 employees to its current workforce. Much has been made about these developments in the news, and in social media. To be sure, the potential benefits are huge: tens-of-thousands of new jobs and many millions in annual revenues that will help us enhance public services that our residents count on most - more police officers on the street, more hours at our libraries and community centers, more miles of streets repaired and repaved. Yet, as the excitement and interest in these proposed projects continues to grow, it's important to understand exactly what all of this means - and doesn't mean. Here's my take: 1. It isn't a sure thing. Lots of "big plans" are launched to fanfare, but the world changes - economies dip, shareholders balk, and corporations pivot. History offers San Jose too many cruel reminders: the groundbreaking of the Tesla factory in North San Jose a decade ago, Apple's plans for a Coyote Valley headquarters in the 1980's, and the like.   The Council and City Hall need to focus on doing whatever we need to do to eliminate barriers - legal and regulatory obstacles, red tape, and other hurdles - to facilitate these extraordinary investments in our city. 2. There's No Subsidy or "Special Deal" Many cities and states offer large subsidies to lure corporate campuses to their jurisdictions. For example, Massachusetts provided $145 million in combined subsidies to persuade General Electric to relocate its headquarters to Boston. San Jose offered subsidies (some of dubious efficacy) in past decades as well, but that will not be our path going forward.

In recent weeks, Downtown's trajectory has shifted dramatically, as we've announced the most extraordinary string of economic development news in our Downtown's - and San Jose's - history.

In my conversations with Google over the past year, I never offered any City subsidies or fee breaks; and to their credit, Google never asked for them. We agreed that the company would pay fair market value for all public land. Google merely sought to be treated fairly, like any other land buyer.   In the months ahead, I expect that we will reach a negotiated price that will ensure the public gets its money worth - and substantially more than the City paid - for these parcels, in addition to the ongoing benefit our taxpayers will receive from Google's presence in San Jose.

In May, Amazon made public its first foray into Downtown with its research outpost, Lab126, at

This is important for several reasons, if for none other than to disabuse any misperception that

The Big News

Like the rest of the region, San Jose has chronically suffered from a severe shortage of affordable housing, a fact that certainly predates these recent announcements by several decades. Beyond the buying activity of some speculators, however, expansions by Adobe, Amazon, and Google shouldn't have much immediate impact on that issue. Why not? Thousands of Google and Adobe employees won't parachute into Downtown anytime soon. Neither company has even applied for building permits, so we are still years off. If all goes well, the Google development will take a decade or more to build out - and over that decade (and perhaps through a recession or two), adding even 20,000 employees would comprise less than a 1% annual increase in the city's employment base. In the meantime, housing construction will occur, and these announcements will spur more of it in our Downtown. More than 1,500 units are under construction today, and we expect several more projects to break ground in the next year. The Diridon Station Area Plan calls for 2,500 more housing units near the footprint of Google's planned development with a goal that affordable units comprise 25% of the total. In addition, Google has publicly supported the concept of having both market-rate and affordable housing as part of the proposed mixed-use development, and has a history of supporting affordable housing development, as demonstrated by their efforts to seek the approval of 10,000 units near their Mountain View campus. While our entire region will continue to struggle with affordability, here in San Jose, we've done more in the last 30 months to confront this challenge than in any other comparable span of our city's history: imposing an inclusionary housing requirement, requiring an affordable housing impact fee, tightening rent control constraints, strengthening tenants' rights against eviction, supporting the County's passage of a $900 million housing bond, and issuing more than $50 million for affordable housing development. None of those things will "fix" the problem, of course. Large, historic market forces have created this situation, and we'll need to continue pushing aggressively in the years ahead, with a particular focus on expanding our housing supply in a manner consistent with our General Plan. 4. Who Gets Displaced? Any new development has impacts on those who were "there first": current tenants and their neighbors. However, beyond the concerns around affordability that I addressed earlier, these expansions don't contemplate the kind of displacement one might expect with large corporate campus developments. Most of the publicly-owned parcels sought by Google consist of parking lots or empty industrial buildings; and the few tenant businesses located on these properties, like Patty's Inn, will receive relocation assistance or cash compensation. Likewise, Adobe's expansion site consists of surface parking and a vacant commercial building. We also won't see residential neighborhoods torn down as a result of these projects. The City will require any developers to mitigate

AUGUST 4 - 10, 2017 disruption to established neighborhoods as part of the entitlement process. Representatives of the surrounding neighborhoods-such as Delmas Park, St. Leo's, and the Alameda Business Associationhave already held an initial meeting with Google to learn about proposed vision for the development site. As we move forward, the City will host several public meetings, and the companies have expressed a strong interest in continued engagement with the community.   5.  How About Traffic? Of all of the places that Google and Adobe chose to launch their expansions, they intentionally picked the most transit-rich location in the State of California, and therefore the least likely to exacerbate auto traffic. The adjacent Diridon Station will, within a decade, become the Grand Central Station of the West. In the coming years, we'll add BART and High Speed Rail service to existing CalTrain, Amtrak, Altamont Commuter Express, Capitol Corridor, light rail, bus rapidtransit, and standard bus service - and the station will ultimately see more than 600 trains arrive daily. We're also expanding road capacity by extending Autumn Street to ease access to 880, and Google and other Downtown developers will pay fees to address traffic impacts to congested intersections. In addition, we've expanded bike share service to improve access to transit, and we'll see bus frequency improvements with BART's launch in Berryessa in the months ahead. In short, if there's a place to grow, this is it. We're building the infrastructure for it, and this kind of transit-oriented development provides a model for any future growth. 6. Yes, It's a Big Deal The majority of us, of course, don't live or work Downtown, and might dismiss this news as irrelevant to our largely suburban existence. Yet, it does matter. Downtowns of major cities should be major job centers, providing employment opportunity and revenue for the entire region, and the prospect of growing San Jose's diminutive Downtown has many positive implications.   First, it provides some welcome relief to a city with the worst housing-to-jobs imbalance of any major U.S. city. This imbalance hurts all of our residents because, under California's tax revenue allocation formulas, it creates chronic fiscal shortfalls that diminish the quality and quantity of City services - police, pothole repair, libraries, and the like - that our residents receive. Beyond the dollars, this development provides a multitude of other concrete benefits to San Joseans. It offers a sustainable model for "smart growth" in an otherwise sprawling, suburban valley, that will have far less impacts on traffic congestion, environmental stress, water consumption, and GhG emissions than other developments. It brings jobs, housing, amenities, public spaces, and transit all within short walking distances, akin to the streetscapes and development patterns of vibrant, centuries-old European cities. It will attract a larger critical mass of urban consumers and creators of the arts that will help build a social landscape more conducive to San Jose's cultural and artistic growth. Finally, it gives Silicon Valley what it desperately needs: a dynamic urban center needed to attract the creative young talent that drives innovation in today's tech industries. All of that is a big deal. I look forward to a robust public conversation about how we can make Downtown's long-sought future a reality. -Sam

DEROGAR OBAMACARE AFECTARÁ A LAS FAMILIAS DE CLASE TRABAJADORA

Estephany Haro El Observador

Una de las promesas del presidente Donald Trump desde que tomó cargo de la presidencia de los Estados Unidos ha sido derogar Obamacare, lo cual dejaría a 32 millones de personas sin seguro médico en todo el país para el año 2026, de acuerdo a un análisis de la oficina del presupuesto del congreso. Durante su campaña, el presidente prometió derogar Obamacare y tener una mejor ley de salud por lo cual, miles de personas se preguntan si esto se iba hacer realidad en cuanto tomara el cargo, ya que esta ha sido la misión de los republicanos desde que Obamacare entró en vigor. “Let Obamacare fail, it will be a lot easier to replace,” deja que Obamacare fracase, así será más fácil reemplazarlo, dijo el presidente enojado después de que tres senadoras republicanas votaran en contra de derogar el programa de ley sin ningún reemplazo, ya que hubiese tenido un impacto negativo en millones de personas. A pesar de que los Republicanos controlan la cámara del senado, no hay podido hacer cumplir la promesa de Trump. ¿Pero quien realmente se vería afectada con la derogación de Obamacare? La ley de seguro de salud asequible requiere que toda las personas tengan un seguro de salud, ya sea por parte de su empleador o por la propia cuenta de cada persona. Obamacare ofrece nuevos beneficios, derechos y protecciones a los Americanos con respecto al cuidado de su salud, de acuerdo con Obamacare. Este programa también extiende Medicaid a todos los adultos en muchos estados, para los adultos mayores y aquellos con incapacidades de largo plazo. Sin embargo, en el estado de California existe Covered California, programa que está debajo de Obamacare y ofrece cobertura de salud asequible para las pequeñas empresas y sus empleados. También las personas pueden

comprar un seguro de salud de compañías conocidas, en acuerdo con la Ley de Protección del Paciente y Cuidado de Salud a Bajo Precio. Covered California es el único lugar donde se puede obtener asistencia federal para ayudar a pagar las cuotas de un seguro privado a través de diferentes compañías, de acuerdo con Covered Ca. En nuestro estado también existe MediCal, un programa que ofrece cobertura de salud gratuita o de bajo costo para niños y adultos con ingresos y recursos limitados. Este programa cubre a los adultos de bajos ingresos, familias con niños, personas de edad avanzada, personas con discapacidades, mujeres embarazadas, niños en cuidado de crianza y jóvenes que estuvieron en cuidado de crianza hasta los 26 años de edad según Covered California. Medí-Cal es los mismo que el programa federal Medicaid, el cual también ofrece salud asequible a personas de bajos recursos en todo el país. ¿Pero qué pasaría con el programa Medical si derogan a obamacare? De acuerdo a un reporte de Los Angeles Times, en los últimos tres años, más de cinco millones de Californianos se han inscrito en Medi-Cal y hay alrededor de 13 millones en total que están debajo de este programa, la mayoría de estas personas podría perder su seguro médico, si es que llegan a derogar Obamacare, según Covered California. De acuerdo con el diario New York Times, muchas personas que obtuvieron un seguro de salud con Obamacare, no eran pobres suficientes para calificar a Medicaid pero lo pobre suficiente para no poder comprar un propia cobertura. Muchos otros eran rechazados por sus condiciones pre-existentes. Por lo tanto, el derogar Obamacare, no solo afectaría a la clase trabajadora de todo el país, si no a la clase media también. Pero los más importante de resaltar es que las familias de bajos recursos serían las más afectadas ya que el programa Medi-Cal podría ser recortado.

HOW ARE ENVIRONMENTALISTS USING INSTAGRAM TO FURTHER THEIR CAUSES?

AUGUST 4 - 10, 2017

ON THE GO? Read us online! visit el-observador.com to download our editions.

EONEWS ONLINE

Instagram, the photo-based social network which Facebook bought in 2012 for a cool $1 billion, continues to rack up new users, doubling its base to 700 million monthly active users over the last two years. Environmental groups, activists and photographers have realized that they can get their messages out more effectively by embracing this newfangled communications medium that uses imagery to connect with the world’s increasingly attention-deficit oriented population of Internet users. At the heart of the Instagram experience is hashtags, which are essentially keywords that Instagram users append to their posts so others can find them through simple text-based search. When someone searches for a particular keyword on the Instagram smartphone app or website, a list of imagery bearing the corresponding hashtag will pop up as results. Users can then choose to “follow” (i.e. subscribe to) any of the Instagram accounts that show up and will then see every new post by that “publisher” accordingly. Several well-known green groups have active Instagram accounts, so eco-conscious users have many choices for getting their pictorial information. The Sierra Club (@SierraClub), the Center for Biological Diversity (@centerforbiodiv), Inherit the Earth (@inherittheearthorg), The Nature Conservancy (@nature_org), Conservation International (@conservationorg) and Clean Energy Advocates (@netzero.global) are among the better curated non-profit accounts to follow. And the International League of Conservation Photographers (@ ilcp_photographers) features some of the best conservation-oriented imagery on Instagram from its network of hundreds of the world’s

leading nature photographers. Meanwhile, there are plenty of Instagramonly “feature” accounts devoted to environmental issues that are worth following. These curated Instagram account select posts from other users to feature on their accounts. Photographers and other users simply append corresponding hashtags to their posts and then these curated accounts can choose to pick them up and feature them for their own followers to see. Some excellent examples include #everydayclimatechange which features compelling imagery highlighting the challenges we face due to global warming. #climatechange is another hashtag sure to satisfy the urge to stay connected with climate activism. Wildlife lovers should be sure to check out @bbcearth from the BBC and its landmark Planet Earth series as well as @WildlifePlanet, which curates some of the best wildlife photography on the web. @ Waterlust seeks to inspire scientific curiosity and sustainable products to support marine science research and education. Likewise, several conservation-oriented photographers have embraced Instagram as a primary means for showcasing their work and inspiring environmental concerns and activism. Camille Seaman (@camilleseaman), Paul Nicklen (@paulnicklen), Sean Gallagher (@sean_gallagher_photo), Brian Skerry (@brianskerry), Mattias Klum (@ mattiasklumofficial), James Whitlow Delano (@jameswhitlowdelano), and Arrati Kumarrao (@aratikumarrao) each post jaw-dropping and inspiring photos regularly and are well-worth following if you need inspiration to do the right thing by the planet.

SAN JOSE RECEIVES IBM SMARTER CITIES CHALLENGE GRANT IBM sending experts here to help San Jose develop new technological tools in support of the City’s affordable housing and homelessness initiatives

San Jose, Calif. – The City of San Jose has announced that it is one of five cities across the globe who have been awarded an IBM Smarter Cities Challenge grant for the 2017-18 fiscal year. The Smarter Cities grant will provide consulting services in support of some of the City’s affordable housing initiatives. This could include two technology projects currently being developed by the City of San Jose’s Housing Department: 1. Development of a “Rental Unit Registry” in support of the City’s rent stabilization program. The City currently lacks a robust tool for tracking rent and occupancy information for apartments that fall under the City’s rent stabilization ordinance. The goal of this project is to create a new Rental Unit Registry that will allow the City to better collect data on apartments, track changes in when tenants move and their new rents, and monitor compliance with the City’s rent stabilization provisions. The Rental Registry would also include predictive analytic tools to help predict turn over, identify “bad actors”, and automate notification processes. 2.    Development of a new web application that seamlessly connects individuals with affordable apartments for which they qualify. The current housing match process can be quite lengthy due to many different government agencies, non-profits and housing programs involved. However, through this project, the City will aim to develop a single, scalable platform that provides an automated process for matching individuals with any of the affordable housing options for which they meet the relevant eligibility criteria – with the goal of significantly reducing the time it takes to place individuals into a home. “These projects represent the latest effort to embrace technology and new digital tools to improve city services and tackle many of the critical issues facing our community,” said Mayor Sam Liccardo, who launched San Jose’s Smart City Vision last year. “I’d like to thank IBM for their commitment to helping us implement these solutions as part of our broader strategy to address our region’s growing affordable housing crisis.” “With the cost of living continuing to soar

and an insufficient supply of housing, residents of Silicon Valley desperately need the City to provide tools to navigate a complex and often challenging rental market," said Jacky Morales-Fernand, Housing Director for the City of San Jose. "Support from the IBM Smart City Challenge will help to build a technology infrastructure that matches people with the housing they need, while also ensuring that the existing rental stock is monitored and well maintained." IBM’s Smarter Cities Challenge is a pro bono initiative that helps cities with critical issues ranging from jobs creation, transportation, and public safety, to healthcare, revenue, social services, and public works. Later this fall, IBM will be sending a team of five or six experts to San Jose for three weeks to work closely with city staff to help develop the new rental registry and homeless housing web application. The City of San Jose was selected from a highly competitive pool of more than 100 cities around the world that applied for a grant of consulting services from IBM. By the end of 2017, IBM will have made such Smarter Cities Challenge grants to more than 135 cities worldwide chosen from more than 700 applicants, with nearly 800 of IBM top experts delivering pro bono services valued at more than USD $66 million. Each consulting engagement has a commercial value of USD $500,000. Jennifer Crozier, IBM’s Vice President of Corporate Citizenship & President of the IBM Foundation, congratulated the winners, saying, "With the help of our experts, cities around the world are now able to better use data and transform the way they engage citizens, deliver services, and make their cities more livable. We thank all those who have applied and feel fortunate to be in the position of providing IBM's best talent, innovation, and resources to help so many cities improve. In the coming months, we're eager to work with this new group of leaders to make their cities smarter."
