Climate Change Causing Ocean Acidification, Low Oxygen Climate change is turning ocean water more acidic and creating low-oxygen “dead zones” issues that have serious implications for the entire oceanic ecosystem. That’s the subject of a Wednesday workshop in Sacramento on the findings of the West Coast Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia Science Panel. (More online) County to Partner with Open Space Authority to Develop Sustainable Ag Policy Framework Extreme drought, increased risk of wildfires and flooding and other indicators of a changing climate are prompting planners, scientists and policy makers across the region and state to look at common sense strategies and investments that can mitigate future greenhouse gas emissions and increase resiliency to climate change effects.

Let’s do a ‘Law Enforcement & Justice System Analysis’ which is where our nation’s ‘SOCIAL ORDER is supported by police enforcement. Imagine taking a personal journey through the current ‘Law & Order’ ideals. Understand that the current ‘judicial system’ was developed over thousands of years of human experiences recorded in the Decalogue and a multitude of laws and ordinances. It still is a work in progress because we all have ideologies, standards, and cultural customs/traditions we are expected to know and practice so as to have the end result: A civilized community living in tranquility, peace and harmony. Keep in mind that peace is essential for economic development and investment. No investments (i.e., businesses and jobs) are made/ created in communities that are in turmoil. Law enforcement & justice provide a way of dealing with scofflaws and transgressors. This analysis is presented to ensure that all of us realize that ‘LAW AND ORDER’, as an ideal, has not yet been achieved. The entire system can be and must be improved in order to achieve ‘equity and justice under the law’. The improvements require all of us to deal with racism, nationalism, bias, bigotry, hatred, homophobia, that ideology certain groups have that let them feel superior to others. Still this nation, Under God, has achieved

higher levels of acceptance of diversity. We just must learn to live together, become slow to anger, and control certain ‘knee-jerk reactions. The basic rule is ‘Treat your neighbor as you would wish to be treated,” Faith, ideologies, and philosophies are interwoven into a fabric which results in ‘acceptance, respect, kindness and courtesy which is expected and applied to all residents regardless of color, creed, and gender. These elements all play a role in the establishment of a safe, stable environment having the ‘peace, security and tranquility’ needed for a civil society, its governance and its economy to flourish. Democratic societies, especially America, has achieved the highes level of a faith-based community which seeks ‘equity and justice’ in its social order. Let’s begins with an encounter with a ‘Sworn Law Officer. a policeman/woman, who stops you. Ideally, that detainment is done with respect, courtesy, and a reasonable level of good communication. You have the right to know why you were ‘stopped’. You have the right to keep silent until your lawyer is present to counsel you. You also have a right to ask for his/her name and badge number. The most important thing to know is that ‘a sworn officer of the law is licensed to kill’ when necessary to protect him/herself and society. So be very careful, respectful, courteous and cooperative. It is the duty of each of us to report ‘bad’ encounters to the police department, and in San Jose, to its Independent Police Auditor (Phone: 408-794-6226). Anonymity can be requested. Each reported encounter helps police departments to identify those few police who need counseling, re-orientation, re-training and eventu-

ally well-documented release from the police force. Report factually what happened, especially if you were detained for a while, questioned, your vehicle examined for ‘contraband’ and then ‘released’. Your civic responsibility is to report all such incidences especially if the police officer involved was abusive, rude, or disrespectful. The reality is that your police encounter report will help identify those few ‘rogue cops’ who take advantage of and/or mis-apply their police authority ‘under the law and its ordinances’. If you are arrested, then you are entitled to ‘being deemed innocent until proven guilty (convicted) in a court of law’. You will experience being ‘booked’ (which documents all the reason for your arrest). You have the right to ‘legal counsel’ which could be a lawyer you engage (hire) or, if you are impoverished, the Court could assign you to a ‘Public Defender (a lawyer) who is an employee of the local Public Defender’s agency. Here your case may experience the reality that Public Defender’s may have a high case load so the time for ‘discovery’ (research & finding precedents) may be limited, much to your disadvantage. you may not be well-represented. Your arraignment will happen in a Court which will schedule the adjudication (the hearing) of your case. You may be released from custody under your own recognizance. Be certain to show up at the scheduled court, date and time with your lawyer. If the accused defendant does not show up on the scheduled court date, the Judge may issue a bench warrant for your arrest. PART 2 CONTINUATION will be published in next week’s EO edition dated 08.14.15.

As SJSU President, Mohammad Qayoumi, prepares to leave office for a position within the Afghanistan government, CSU Chancellor, Timothy White, has announced former Eastern Michigan University President, Susan Martin, will serve as interim SJSU President. In a statement, Chancellor White noted Martin’s background and leadership style is a perfect fit for SJSU. Chancellor White is clearly out of touch with his assessment of the San Jose community as Martin’s background and leadership style are raising serious concerns, especially among the local American Indian community. Martin’s appointment should be withdrawn, SJSU can do better. A search of EMU’s website reveals from 1929 until 1991, EMU was known as The Hurons, and utilized a logo depicting the silhouette of a native man. In 1988, the Michigan Civil Rights Commission recommended schools avoid the use of Native American mascots. In 1991, EMU complied and changed their mascot’s name to the Eagles and retired The Huron mascot and logo. That is until 2012, when President Martin brought back the former logo and strategically positioned it under a flap on the EMU

band uniform where it remained hidden to the outside world. Since its return, there have been numerous calls for its removal, but Martin has remained steadfast and unyielding, even as recently as last June, where in a meeting with the EMU Native American Student Organization, the ACLU and representatives of the US Department of Justice, Martin again refused to oust the Huron logo. When asked why she wouldn’t remove the logo, Martin responded the logo honors the school’s past and unites alumni. If that’s true, especially the honoring part, then why should it be hidden? If you are truly honoring something, wouldn’t you want others to know what it is you are honoring? It appears she knows what she is doing is wrong and has chosen to cover it up. It begs the question: why even have the logo if it is only going to be seen by the band member putting on his uniform? For years, natives have had to fight for their survival and remind others we are not a vanished piece of the American bygone. Hiding the logo is just another reminder that even today, native people must still fight to remain relevant and not slip further into marginalization. Today’s native population within ethnically diverse Santa Clara County stands at approximately 40,000.

EDUCATION

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com San Jose CALIFORNIA The Office of Education, County of Santa Clara, with the budget 2015/16 approved by he Board of Supervisors, Dave Cortese, President, funded the establishment of ‘The Family College Success Center’ with a $2 million funding allocation. This program will be implemented by the Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley, Ron Gonzales, President & CEO. This new program is geared toward narrowing the achievement gap and ensuring that traditionally underserved students have access to world-class educational opportunities. “I am tremendously excited about our plans for the coming year,” said County Superintendent of Schools Jon R. Gundry. “With the help of our valuable community partners, the SCCOE is looking forward to providing more services for students from all walks of life, from preschool to high school and beyond.”

AUGUST 7-13, 2015 Silicon Valley’s population is Latino, only 3 percent of the community’s high tech workforce identifies as such; the Family College Success Center is designed to change this dynamic through academic support, mentoring and workshops for students and families. “The Family College Success Center will be a ‘one-startshop’ for college-aspiring students and their parents to obtain college information and guidance to attend and graduate from college,” said Ron Gonzales, President and CEO of the Hispanic Foundation. “We are thrilled that the County Board of Education has decided to join this new and creative partnership.” Officials from the SCCOE and Hispanic Foundation celebrated the partnership with a check presentation ceremony Tuesday morning. “Every child deserves a chance to succeed, and it is our obligation as leaders to ensure that those opportunities are nurtured and supported,” said Darcie Green, President of the Santa Clara County Board of Education. “The Family College Success Center opens the door to a brighter future for Latino students and their families.”

Educare of California at Silicon Valley, a state-of-the-art early learning center that will serve 160 low-income students and families when it opens its doors in August, and Opportunity Youth Academy, a WASC-accredited school also opening this fall for young men and women seeking to finish their high school education and create a customized path to college or the workforce. Other SCCOE programs take on the achievement gap from a wide range of tactics and perspective, including professional development opportunities for teachers in high-need classrooms; academic programs to encourage young black and Latino students to pursue science, tech and math careers; a host of events through President Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative; and an $89,000 investment in technology for migrant students in six counties. Details about the 2015-16 budget can be found on the SCCOE’s website, or contact Ken Blackstone for more information. A video from the check presentation ceremony can be viewed on the SCCOE website:

Practical Money El crédito en los Estados Unidos es tu reputación financiera y todos, desde los bancos hasta las mueblerías examinan tu historial de crédito para ver si has pagado tus cuentas a tiempo y así poder determinar si te prestan dinero. Obtener y usar crédito puede ser extremadamente ventajoso y puede darte la flexibilidad económica para aprovechar oportunidades que de otra forma no podrías aprovechar. Visa se ha establecido como un líder financiero de confianza durante casi 50 años promoviendo las tarjetas de crédito como una forma de pago. Visa trajo el uso de crédito a las masas y ha creado el sitio web en español “Destrezas prácticas para toda la vida”, en http://www.practicalmoneyskills.com/spanish/, que puede ayudarte a usar el crédito en forma apropiada y usarlo para provecho propio. El crédito es bueno porque te permite comprar artículos ahora. Los estados de cuenta mensuales de tu acreedor, la compañía que te presta el dinero, te pueden ayudar a vigilar tus gastos. Recuerda que el crédito es un préstamo y, como la mayoría de los préstamos, se carga

un interés que se carga sobre el dinero que te prestaron. La compañía de la tarjeta de crédito le paga a la tienda de electrodomésticos o a la mueblería en el transcurso de unos pocos días, y tú debes comenzar a pagar el préstamo cuando recibas tu estado de cuenta mensual por correo. Cuando te presten dinero, es una buena idea hacer el pago mínimo a tiempo, pero todavía es mejor si pagas más que el mínimo porque eso ayudará a mejorar tu crédito y evitará cargos. El crédito viene acompañado de una gran responsabilidad, debes entonces utilizarlo cuidadosamente. Debes asumir tu responsabilidad y establecer tu crédito: Tus responsabilidades Cómo construir tu crédito * Pide prestado sólo lo que puedas pagar (Nunca pidas prestado más del 20% de ingreso anual antes de impuestos; si ganas $10,000 no debes pedir prestado más de $2,000) * Lee y entiende el contrato de crédito. (Éste contiene la tasa de interés y los cargos por penalización por dejar de hacer pagos) * Paga las deudas puntualmente * Avísale al acreedor si no puedes hacer los pagos y convengan en una forma de pago

* Informa si se te pierde o te roban tu tarjeta de crédito rápidamente * Nunca des el número de tu tarjeta de crédito por teléfono a menos que tú hayas iniciado la llamada o estés seguro de la identidad de quien llama * Establece un historial estable de empleo * Paga todas las cuentas oportunamente * Abre una cuenta de cheques en un banco y no hagas cheques por más del dinero que tengas de saldo * Abre una cuenta de ahorros en un banco y haz depósitos con regularidad * Solicita una tarjeta de crédito en una tienda de departamentos y haz pagos mensuales con regularidad * Solicita un pequeño préstamo usando tu cuenta de ahorros como garantía * Obtén a un cosignatario (alguien con crédito) en un préstamo y paga el préstamo como lo acordaste El crédito puede conferirte poder para hacer algo si lo usas correctamente. A la larga, depende de ti usar y establecer tu crédito en forma responsable. Tener buen crédito puede abrir muchas puertas para ti y para tu familia. Y si lo fortaleces, puede proporcionar ayuda económica para invertir en tu familia o en tu negocio.

HEALTH

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com Dr. Reginald L. Walker Acne afflicts 85 percent or young people between the ages of 1225 and 10 percent of Americans between the ages of 25-44, mostly women due to hormonal changes. ACNE Acne (Acne Vularis) is a systematic inflammatory disease which causes whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules and nodules. Acne begins with the accumulation of sebuna, oil secreted by the skin. Whiteheads/ blackheads, which are pores of the skin that is blocked by accumulated secretions, but are not inflamed. Papules are pores with a raptured wall blocked by accumulated secretions and are inflamed. Pustules are raptured pores with pus draining at the surface. Nodules are inflamed, tender accumulation of pus within the skin. CAUSES There are several contributing factors to getting acne, from food sources to cosmetics.

FOODS Foods are one of the biggest contributing factors in increased acne problems, especially among teens and young adults. The following foods are known to cause a pro-inflammatory connection in promoting acne: Wheat/wheat products, corn products, dried fruits, candy, french fries/all fried foods, fruit juices, hard cheese, hot dogs, honey, frozen yogurt, Italian ice, sherbert, jam/jellies, margarine, molasses, mango, papaya, bananas, peas, pizza, popcorn, potatoes, rice, coffee, excess alcohol, iodized salt, all snack foods, sodas, sugars, desserts. These foods cause a sugar/ insulin reaction, therefore causing skin to breakdown. HORMONES Changing hormone levels affect the onset of acne. The male hormones (Androgens) stimulate oil production (Sebum) by binding to a special receptor on the oil gland. Low levels of progesterone and high levels of estrogen have been linked to acne problems in women. STRESS A proven precipitator of acnes at any age. Cortisol, a stress hormone

AUGUST 7-13, 2015 exacerbating acne flare-ups. Elevated cortisol levels cause an increase in blood sugar which causes proinflammatory mode. COSMETICS This is another precipitator of teenage/adult female acne. All teenage girls and adult women using cosmetics should make I ta point to look at the ingredients in their cosmetics, especially comedogenic (clog pores) ingredients. Even noncomedogenic cosmetics contain other acne inducing substances, especially the wearing of foundations. CONVENTIONAL TREATMENTS If you suffer from acne, e wary of the usual conventional treatments. Most prescription drugs for acne are either harsh topical lotions, creams which cause dryness, redness, scaling and sun sensitivity or the taking of antibiotics which disrupt the natural balances of intestinal flora and may give one yeast infections, urinary tract infections and diarrhea. A HEALTHY ALTERNATIVE African Black Soap- This soap works wonders when it comes to getting rid of acne and preventing wrinkles.

SCCvector.org.

The soap has the ability to provide a deep cleansing and remove excess oil from the skin. The soap can also be used to removes harmful chemical substances (make-up) that can easily spoil one’s skin. African black soap has a high concentration of vitamin A and B that helps to speed up the healing of acne scars. This soap will effectively eradicate various types of acnes that include body acnes and back acne. ASAP Gel- Should be applied twice a day. Total improvement of the skin should take about four weeks. FOODS THAT HELP FIGHT ACNE The following foods can assist in fighting and preventing acne. Almonds (unsalted/raw), apples, artichokes, asparagus, beans (fresh, not canned), berries (blue, black, acai, raspberries, strawberries), broccoli, cabbage, celery, cherries (fresh), cucumbers, eggplant, fish, flaxseed/chia seeds, bell peppers, lentils, oats (not instant), pears, pecans, nuts (Brazil, hazel, macadamia, unsalted), roman lettuce, turkey, soy products, tomatoes, Greek yogurt, and chocolate (must be 85 percent or more of cocoa).

STATEPOINT Todos los veranos, muchos propietarios de casas echan mano de sus palas y empiezan a cavar como parte de proyectos de paisajismo y de otro tipo para la mejora de sus hogares. Ya sea que le gusten los proyectos de hágalo usted mismo o sea un excavador profesional contratado para un proyecto, es esencial cavar con inteligencia. Hay más de 100,000 millones de pies de servicios públicos subterráneos en los Estados Unidos, que equivalen a más de la longitud de un campo de fútbol americano de servicios enterrados por cada persona del país, según la Common Ground Alliance, una organización dedicada a proteger las líneas subterráneas de los servicios públicos y la seguridad de las personas que cavan cerca de ellas. Cada seis minutos se daña una línea de servicios públicos subterránea porque alguien no llamó antes de cavar. El 11 de agosto (abreviado 8/11 en el calendario estadounidense) funciona como un recordatorio para llamar siempre al 811 a fin de cavar de modo seguro y legal. Ya sea que esté usted plantando un árbol, instalando una cerca, una plataforma o una alberca, o esté comenzando cualquier otro proyecto de excavación, es fundamental que llame al 811 antes de cavar para que le marquen la ubicación aproximada de los servicios públicos y tuberías subterráneas. Llamar al 811 es la ley, y saber dónde están enterradas las tuberías y las líneas de servicios públicos subterráneos ayudará a protegerlos a usted y a quienes lo rodean de posibles lesiones. También ayuda a evitar daños a los servicios públicos, interrupciones en el servicio, posibles multas y costos de reparación. Todos los proyectos de excavación exigen una llamada, incluso si ha llamado antes debido a un proyecto similar, ya que la profundidad de las líneas de servicios públicos varía y puede haber varias líneas en una zona común. Cavar sin conocer la ubicación aproximada de los servicios públicos subterráneos aumenta la probabilidad de ocasionar daños de manera no intencional. Qué esperar cuando llame al 811 Su llamada se dirigirá a un centro de llamadas local. Un operador recabará información sobre sus planes de excavación e informará de su proyecto a las empresas locales de tuberías y servicios públicos. Las leyes estatales respecto a la anticipación del aviso requerido para llamar y pedir que se marquen las líneas son variadas. La mayoría de los estados exigen un aviso con entre 48 y 72 horas de antelación (sin contar fines de semana y festivos). Un representante del 811 en su zona le puede dar información concreta, o puede obtener más datos en www.Call811.com. Se enviará a representantes de tuberías y servicios públicos para que marquen la ubicación aproximada de los servicios públicos y cables utilizando pintura con códigos de color, banderas o estacas, de modo que sepa qué hay debajo y pueda excavar con seguridad a su alrededor. Si no hay servicios públicos, tuberías o cables en la ubicación de su excavación, la marcarán como “libre”. Planear un proyecto de excavación • Siempre llame al 811 antes de comenzar cualquier proyecto de excavación, sin importar la profundidad a la que lo va hacer o cuán familiarizado esté con el terreno. • Planifique con anticipación y permita el tiempo suficiente para que se marquen las líneas. Después de haber esperado el tiempo requerido para que se marquen las líneas según su estado, si esto no se ha hecho, llame nuevamente al 811 para comprobar la situación de su solicitud antes de excavar. • Si está usando a un contratista, confirme que haya hecho la llamada al 811. No permita que comience el trabajo sino hasta que se hayan marcado las líneas. • Plantéese cambiar la ubicación de su proyecto si está cerca de las marcas de las líneas. Cavar con cuidado es fundamental para su seguridad, la seguridad de su comunidad y la protección del medio ambiente.

San Jose CALIFORNIA The White House announced Tuesday that San José has been named a TechHire City, joining nine more cities nationwide that have committed to creating pathways to better, well-paying tech jobs and meeting urgent employer demand. There are now 31 TechHire Cities nationally. White House release: https://www.whitehouse.gov/ the-press-office/2015/08/04/newdetails-president-obama-hosts-firstever-white-house-demo-day

“As a TechHire City, we are broadening prosperity by addressing the skills gap that has widened the gulf between economic opportunity and the inability of too many in our community to benefit from it,” said Mayor Sam Liccardo. “SJ TechHire focuses on providing our youth the skills they need to be successful in today’s job market, and expanding and diversifying the pool of skilled talent that Silicon Valley businesses need.” The San José TechHire initiative targets young adults and long-term underemployed individuals, in partnership with work2future, YearUp, #YesWeCode, Santa Clara County Opportunity Youth Partnership and Foothill College. It will launch a new fast-track training program for up to 1,000 techenabled middle-skills jobs through the end of 2016. The types of jobs include

AUGUST 7-13, 2015

user-interface design, coding, web development, and network administration in information communication technology, manufacturing and healthcare industries. San José has already secured $1.2 million from local and state sources to drive these strategies forward with a focus on women, minorities and youth. Later this year, the U.S. Department of Labor will make available $100 million in grants that TechHire Cities can apply for, including San José to fund SJ TechHire. Peter Ortiz is a 2014 graduate of Year Up, a San Jose TechHire training partner. “If I hadn’t participated in Year Up, I would either be in jail or dead,” said Ortiz, who overcame gang violence and worked as a janitor for minimum wage to support his family. Year Up’s intensive tech training program prepared him for an internship at eBay as an Information Security Analyst and today he is employed by Pay Pay as a User Experience Designer. Cisco, Facebook, Jabil Circuit, Kaiser Permanente, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, LinkedIn, Symantec, SYNNEX Corporation and Technology Credit Union are among Silicon Valley employers who, along with eBay and PayPal, have committed their support to SJ TechHire. The San Jose Silicon Valley Chamber of Commerce, Santa Clara County Office of Education and The Tech Museum of In-

novation have also committed their support to bridge the skills gap. “EBay is excited to partner with Mayor Liccardo, YearUp and our colleagues in the industry on the SJ TechHire Initiative,” said Donna Zontos, Vice President of Human Resources North America, eBay. “We’re strongly committed to workforce diversity and recognizes the need to develop broad talent pathways into tech-enabled careers in Silicon Valley.” San Jose’s workforce development agency —work2future— will lead the initiative. “This program will take our existing partnerships with local community colleges, other training partners, and Silicon Valley employers to the next level,” said Jeff Ruster, work2future director. “We will connect our local residents with employment opportunities  at the cutting edge of innovation that are in high demand today and tomorrow.” “The U.S. Department of Labor projects a shortage of one-million trained tech workers by 2020,” said Michael Nobleza, National Director for #YesWeCode. “The SJ TechHire Initiative will enable forward-leaning leaders and communities, like San José, to meet this demand by training more job-ready young adults. There are people who need jobs right now, and #YesWeCode is excited to work with San José to help create alternative pathways to tech jobs for them.”

Washington, DC U.S. Rep. Tony Cárdenas (D-CA 29th District) made the following statement, after the U.S. Department of Education announced its new Second Chance Pell Pilot program to allow prisoners to apply for and receive federal Pell Grants: “In my 18 years as a legislator, reforming our juvenile justice system has been one of my main priorities. Study after study proves to us the power of education in keeping kids out of jail, whether or not they have been incarcerated before and regardless of what side of town they grew up in,” said Cárdenas.

“My parents came to this country with a first and second grade education, and the reason their eleven children succeeded and are now taxpayers and productive members of society is education. “I applaud the Department of Education for allowing both eligible incarcerated children and adults to apply for Pell Grants. These individuals are willing to work hard for a second chance, and our country should allow them to do that and contribute to society once they are released. I look forward to the results of this promising initiative.”

In October 2014, Cárdenas wrote a letter to Secretary of Education Arne Duncan asking the Department to clarify Pell Grant eligibility rules for incarcerated juveniles, and the Department has since issued a Dear Colleague clarification letter. However, thousands of juveniles all over the country remained ineligible for Pell Grants if they were tried as adults (a decision in some cases entirely at the discretion of the prosecutor).

The California Department of Pesticide Regulation announced a $10,000 fine against a grocer in Los Angeles – part of a larger enforcement action to stop the sales of foreign-grown produce tainted with illegal pesticides. Comment from Charlotte Fadipe, (fuh-DEEpee) spokesperson for the California Department of Pesticide Regulation. Image available: photo of cactus pads.

Suzanne Potter CALIFORNIA NEWS SERVICE SAN FRANCISCO - A half dozen small Asian and Hispanic grocers in California will have to pay fines of $10,000 to $20,000 each for selling imported produce tainted with residue from illegal pesticides. Charlotte Fadipe, spokesperson with the California Department of Pesticide Regulation, announced the latest enforcement this week against six companies in Los Angeles and San Francisco that sold produce from Mexico, China, Taiwan and Thailand.

“We are sick and tired of them gambling with the lives of consumers,” says Fadipe. “What’s more, we have warned these companies that these amounts of pesticides are illegal, that they have the potential to harm people, and the companies have simply ignored our warnings.” California regulators randomly test fruits and vegetables for pesticide residue. The tainted produce included purslane, squash and cactus pears, leaves and pads, which are also known as nopales. They also pulled tainted longan, burdock root, ginger, taro root, fragrant pear and lychees from the shelves.

Fadipe says the state’s toxicologists determined eating the tainted produce could make people sick, but no actual cases have been reported. “Here’s the reality, somebody could buy this produce, go home, cook it. They might get an upset stomach or some kind of flu-like illness two or three days later and not necessarily think, ‘Oh it’s the produce.’ That’s the problem,” says Fadipe. A complete list of the stores that were cited is on the California Department of Pesticide Regulation website.

The U.S. Senate will vote on whether to defund Planned Parenthood today after the release of controversial videos, so the pro-choice community is speaking out. Comment from Kathy Kneer, president of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, and Dr. Jennifer Kerns, assistant professor of Ob-Gyn at U.C.S.F., abortion provider and member of Physicians for Reproductive

Health.

Suzanne Potter CALIFORNIA NEWS SERVICE SACRAMENTO, Calif. The U.S. Senate is set to vote today on whether to strip Planned Parenthood of $500 million in federal funding. The vote comes in the wake of undercover videos made by a California-based antiabortion group that show Planned Parenthood representatives discussing the provision of fetal tissue for research. Kathy Kneer, president of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, says her organization supports fetal tissue research, which is legal as long as the provider is solely reimbursed for costs.

“There are no profits involved,” she stresses. “And they take that reimbursement and say we’re selling fetal body parts. And it’s a lie and a distortion of fact. They’re willing to do anything to defund Planned Parenthood and make abortion illegal.” Politicians in many other states have called for investigations into Planned Parenthood, but California’s Attorney General Kamala Harris says she plans to investigate the group that made the videos, because taping without consent in California is illegal. Last week a federal judge halted the release of another video for that same reason. Dr. Jennifer Kerns is an abortion provider, an as-

sistant professor at the University of California, San Francisco, and a member of Physicians for Reproductive Health. “Fetal tissue research is a longstanding area of research, and one that has consistently advanced science and medicine,” she points out. “Every member of society has benefited from treatment discoveries that have been made from this research.” Very little of Planned Parenthood’s work involves abortion, and it does not use federal funds for the procedure. Sens. Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein have both indicated they plan to vote against the bill to defund the organization.

Suzanne Potter CALIFORNIA NEWS SERVICE Environmental advocates are pushing for more zero-emissions vehicles and changes to the EPA’s Regional Haze Program in the wake of a new report that gives California national parks like Joshua Tree failing grades for air quality. Photo credit: Tommy Hough.

JOSHUA TREE, Calif. - As smoke from multiple wildfires chokes the air across California this summer, air quality has again become a hot topic in the Golden State. But despite the current bout of wildfires, the biggest source of smog in California remains the state’s 33.5 million vehicles. California is moving to promote air quality, especially in the wake of a new report from the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) that gives Yosemite, Joshua Tree, Sequoia and Kings Canyon an “F” for air quality.

in particular, are a huge problem in California.”

Ulla Reeves, clean air campaign manager with the NPCA, says all four iconic National Parks have unhealthy levels of ozone.

Governor Jerry Brown set a goal last year of one million zero-emissions cars on the road by 2023, and signed a bill to make electric cars more affordable. Three years ago, the state mandated that 15 percent of cars sold in California be all electric, hybrid or hydrogen vehicles, beginning in 2018.

“Between oil and gas plants and vehicles, all of this pollution piles up together and contributes to degraded air quality,” she says. “Vehicles,

Reeves says the Regional Haze Rule of the Clean Air Act needs to be tightened to force additional action on the issue around the country.

“That rule, unfortunately, has some loopholes and weaknesses that are allowing states and polluters to essentially game the system and often avoid cleaning up,” she says. “We’re calling on the Obama administration to strengthen the regional haze rule.” The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has criticized the regional haze rule as too stringent, and has made the claim the rule has stood in the way of construction of hundreds of new power plants.

and landscaping in order to save drinking water.

Concord The Concord DMV field office has teamed up with the Central Contra Costa Sanitary District (CCCSD) to use recycled water to irrigate landscaping. On July 15, 2015, CCCSD connected the irrigation system at the field office to their network of purple pipelines, making it the first state owned DMV property to use recycled water. “The DMV is always looking for ways to reduce our drink-

ing water use,” said DMV Director Jean Shiomoto. “We are proud of our continued efforts to meet executive orders to lower drinking water consumption in all of our offices statewide.” Every year, CCCSD provides about 200 million gallons of treated and recycled wastewater to nourish grass and plants to customers in Martinez, Concord and Pleasant Hill. This water is not designed for human consumption, but is perfect for irrigating lawns

Using the recycled water is estimated to reduce the use of drinking water at the Concord field office by as much as 45 percent. This will significantly reduce DMV’s water bill because the recycled water is provided at a discount price. Customers converting to CCCSD’s recycled water typically save 25% on their irrigation bill. The DMV field office is the sixth connection in CCCSD’s Concord Landscape Project, a project that received more than a million dollars in grant funding from the Department of Water Resources. During the drought, the Save Our Water website has tools and tips to help everyone conserve water at home and at work.

One of the area’s barrier islands in the Gulf of Mexico, Manasota Key, features charming communities and four beaches. Manasota Beach’s sand dunes and mangroves attract nature lovers, while Englewood Beach offers grills, picnic tables, pavilions and outdoor sport facilities. Stump Pass Beach is excellent for hiking and exploring Florida’s natural flora and fauna. What To See And Do • Fishing in Englewood, originally settled as a grove town to grow lemon trees, offers some of the best whether by boat, kayak, charter or from the shore. There’s even a fishing tourney for families every October as part of the Englewood Beach WaterFest. • Lemon Bay Park and Environmental Center has 208 acres of trails and various species of animals. • When you’re not on the water, you can shop along West Dearborn Street in Olde Englewood Village.

Meeting Simba: Aaron Nelson Honored to be ‘The Lion King’ Lead

Arturo Hilario El Observador Broadway’s Tony award-winning musical The Lion King has been one of the most important and iconic productions in the world. It’s last romp through San José was 9 years ago when it sold out its six-week premiere engagement. In September The Lion King returns to the Center for the Performing Arts from Wednesday, September 9th to Sunday, October 4th. Aaron Nelson plays the lead role of Simba in the production, and has done so since his August 27th, 2013 premiere in that role. Since then he has played the role of Simba more than 500 times. His background is in business and acting, getting his BA in Arts Management from Chicago’s Columbia College and getting his start in performing in 2009. “I did an internship for Walt Disney World in Theater Performance, so I was one of those guys that you see in the ‘Goofy’ outfit, I was the guy in the costume.” His favorite suit was ‘Tigger’, a bouncy tiger character from Disney’s Winnie the Pooh. Nelson says the internship experience was what really got him into

acting. “I did my first musical in 2012, and I got picked up by The Lion King shortly after that, so its been pretty quick getting into the business.” His experience auditioning for the integral role of Simba was one with a long history. “I actually auditioned for Lion King when I was a teenager and they liked me then. They just told me to keep coming back so it took me about 5 auditions and then I finally booked it.” In terms of how he feels as the lead in the beloved story of the Sahara, Nelson says “well you know the Lion King is different than anything. Theres nothing that integrates the puppetry and the costumes, the South African music and the design of the show. I don’t think there’s anything like it. The heart of it and the creative element to The Lion King is really one of a kind. When he first started rehearsals he says he used to watch national geographic programming in order to observe how lions move and their relationship with them and hyenas. “Theres a specific movement that we have in the show that kind of embodies the physical human to lion movement that brings them together. So I just walk around and study. Thats what got me into the role.”

“The creative team actually helps us out with the movement of course as an actor you want to go and be as thorough as you can and get a better understanding of what you’re doing, but the choreographers here give you all the tools you need...to get the best show you can get,” adds Nelson. Although he has many favorite musical numbers in the show, he can name a few that are his top picks. “The Circle of Life is actually probably one of the best opening numbers in musical theater history, there’s also a point in the show where Rafiki (a wise, supporting character in the original film) kind of sings to me, and gets me to believe, to take my place as a king.” Finally Nelson adds, “its really an honor and a privilege, Lion King its pretty much a generational classic and to be the lead of the show is just humbling and it’s an honor really to see how it affects people and it keeps me coming back everyday.” Disney’s The Lion King will take place at The Center for the Performing Arts in September.

Mario Jiménez Castillo EL OBSERVADOR Parece ser que el hombre, aun desde el inicio de los tiempos, nunca estuvo conforme con vivir el presente sin saber con cierta exactitud que le depararía el futuro. Inicialmente la astrología y el I ching, fueron quizá los primeros métodos de adivinación que se conocieron. Posteriormente fueron apareciendo en diversas culturas: las runas, el tarot, la cristalomancia, la quiromancia, la numerología y un sin fin de ciencias hasta hace poco consideradas <<ocultas>>. En la antigüedad alcanzaron celebridad algunos psíquicos extraordinarios como por ejemplo: San Juan Evangelista, El Mago Merlín, Nostradamus, San Malaquías, Jean de Vatiguerro, el Conde Luis Hamon y más recientemente el llamado profeta durmiente Edgar Cayce y Jane Dixon de quién se dice ayudó con sus predicciones al Presidente Roosevelt durante la segunda guerra mundial.

En los últimos años, los psíquicos, mediums, videntes, chamanes y parasicólogos han gozado de un auge extraordinario, debido a que cada día más y más personas buscan respuestas a situaciones totalmente intangibles a la percepción normal del ser humano. Existen seres humanos capaces de visualizar, ver, sentir y predecir eventos que sucederán en el futuro, desde siempre han existido, aunque los extremistas religiosos hayan querido opacar su trascendencia. Todos ellos fueron desarrollando sus habilidades extra sensoriales y se prepararon en las artes adivinatorias, alimentando el precioso don que les fue obsequiado al nacer. Sin embargo, cada ser humano es un ente espiritual capaz de desarrollar dichas habilidades aunque no haya obtenido un don innato. Para ello se necesita tiempo, dedicación, visión, constancia y buena voluntad entre otros preceptos. Es importante recalcar que un verdadero psí-

quico es aquel que siente en carne propia lo que le sucede a quien le consulta, y sin importar las circunstancias que esté atravesando, siempre da lo mejor de sí para ayudar a quien busca su orientación. Animo a los lectores a que no crean en aquellos que dicen tener poderes sobrenaturales ya que “Dios” es el único Todopoderoso. La adivinación debe servir al consultante como una herramienta que le brinde optimismo, apoyo y buena suerte, y no convertirse en su verdugo; con esto me refiero a personas carentes de buena voluntad que engañan y estafan con falsas promesas a sus consultantes. Siempre me he mostrado en total desacuerdo con aquellos que estafan, mienten y roban sin escrúpulos, valiéndose de la pena y angustia del prójimo. Es cierto que existen personas que precisan de ayuda y que hasta son víctimas de un maleficio o del acoso de un mal espíritu, pero no es el caso de todos. También es cierto que algunos utensilios

indicados en las limpias espirituales pueden llegar a ser costosos, pero si alguien le pide muchísimo dinero por ayudarle es puro fraude, por favor no caigan en la trampa. Y sin ya han caído en ella notifíquenlo a las autoridades inmediatamente, ya que hay leyes que castigan este tipo de hechos fraudulentos. La adivinación debe ser tomada con seriedad y no como un pasatiempo porque llegaría a resultar obsesiva y todos los extremos son dañinos e inconvenientes. Es preciso mencionar que todos somos capaces de alcanzar lo que nos proponemos. Si se tiene fe y estando en conexión y vibración con Dios y el universo, por consiguiente el futuro no puede ser incierto, sino lo más próspero y prometedor que nos podamos imaginar. Si nos dedicamos a tener buena voluntad y a ser generosos con el prójimo y con todo ser viviente, del cielo nos llegarán las más hermosas bendiciones.

drian llevarles directo a sitios piratas que buscan robar su informacion personal.”

Una nueva investigacion realizada por la AARP California entre usuarios del internet detecto que la mayoria antepone la comodidad a la seguridad, y eso puede costarles caro.

Nofziger explica que hay cuatro precauciones que siempre deben tomarse al conectarse a redes inalambricas publicas. No entrar a su correo electronico, a su tarjeta de credito ni a sus cuentas de banco. Asegurarse de que la red es autentica, y no una falsa que use un nombre similar al de la cafeteria o el hotel en donde se este. Revisar sus parametros para evitar que su computadora o celular se conecten automaticamente a la red. Y, si es necesario comprar en linea, usar la senal de su celular; es mas segura que una red Wi-Fi.

El estudio reporta que una cuarta parte de los adultos usuarios de internet se conecta a redes publicas inalambricas al menos una vez por semana y al hacerlo quedan expuestos a ataques. Amy Nofziger es la directora de la “Fraud Watch Network” (Red de Vigilancia del Fraude) de la AARP. “Recientemente la AARP hizo una encuesta sobre la seguridad de los usuarios de internet, y encontro que decenas de miles admiten participar en actividades que po-

Nofziger dice que el FBI estima que en 2014 se perdieron mas de 800 millones de dolares debido a ciber-delitos. Ante esto, la AARP ha lan-

zado la campana “Watch your WiFi” (Cuide su Wi-Fi), que ofrece consejos de seguridad y explica los delitos usados frecuentemente por los piratas. Nofziger reconoce que, pese a los riesgos, para los adultos mayores el Internet puede representar su medio para permanecer en contacto. “Pero queremos que sea seguro. Asi que use la red Wi-Fi publica gratuita para navegar en sus sitios favoritos de deportes, vea las noticias, el clima. Pero jamas escriba su informacion privada o personal en su dispositivo portatil conectado a una red publica.” Para mas informacion (en ingles) sobre como conectarse de manera segura en redes inalambricas publicas “wifi”, visite aarp.org/ watchyourwifi.

Vendor Spotlight: San Jose Game Exchange 0 3 9--30 Brings Generations of Video Gamers Together 29 g.. 2 A ug Au m p m 5 p 5 m a m 1 a 1 11

Location: 16th and H Street as well as other location at container 219. Arturo Hilario EL OBSERVADOR Zabi Naeemi and his family run a video game powerhouse at the Berryessa Flea Market, boasting new and used video games and equipment, for great prices. “We’ve been here for 20 years now,” says Naeemi. The business started with selling electronics first, and then slowly went into video games and peripherals. They initially started their business in Vallejo, then moved down to Oakland, before finally coming down to Berryessa Flea Market. Their selection of hardware and software is immense, having everything from game systems such as the Super Nintendo (released in 1990) to the Xbox One (released in 2013). Their availability of the older games and peripherals puts them ahead of national game retailers

such as Gamestop and Best Buy, by putting an emphasis on carrying anything the consumer wants as opposed to just what’s been released within the past 6 years or so. The shop also offers trading and buying of products. So there is that dynamic where they can pay customers for their games as well. This interaction has allowed them to interact with the customers and create a steady stream of clients. The draw of having so much selection allows them to thrive at Berryessa, being one of the few vendors of nearly any type of interactive electronic. “The most popular thing is the classic games (like) Super Nintendo, Atari, Sega Genesis. Everything and anything old school we got it.” In addition they can find almost any title on any electronic entertainment system. When asked about what might be out of reach for them, they pointed out that it would be the 1987 game “Stadium Events” for Nintendo Entertainment System, of

which only 200 copies were ever in the market. It sells in places like eBay for around $20,000-$40,000 depending on condition. Regardless of extremely scarce games like “Stadium Events” Naeemi says that they can get whatever game or peripherals in a timely manner. “Give us a week or two in advance and we can get it for you.” Naeemi describes the Flea Market and its qualities as convenient and affordable for the customer. “It’s a little bit closer to the house and the market is much nicer than other places. Its very friendly people and sometimes you get that diamond in the rough. They’re very generous people, they like the games and they like the prices that we have.” San Jose Game Exchange can be found at Berryessa Flea Market every Saturday and Sunday for all your gaming needs, new or classic.
