Protecting And Recovering Your Wages For too many workers in the U.S., a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work doesn’t ring true. That’s especially the case in certain sectors of the economy including construction, food service, agriculture, janitorial, retail and hospitality. Too often, employers mistakenly or intentionally deny workers the wages to which they are legally entitled. (More on our site) CA LABOR CODE TO REMOVE THE WORD ‘ALIEN’ SB 432 was signed by Governor California’s Governor Jerry Brown on 08.10.15. This law, effective January 1, 2016 removes the word ‘ALIEN’ from the California Labor Code to describe foreign-born workers. SB432 was sponsored by CA State Senator, the Honorable Tony Mendoza (D-Artesia, CA) per report by THE DAILY POST, Palo Alto, CA on 08.11.15.

The following is the current “County of Santa Clara, Superior court” (google it) breakdown: Civil, Criminal, Family, Juvenile, Probate, Small Claims, and Traffic courts. Their Mission: The Superior Court in Santa Clara County (<scscourt.org>) is to serve the public by providing equal justice for all in a fair, accessible, effective, efficient, and courteous (manner). Understand that, in addition to many ‘law enforcement agencies’ (such as Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA); Office of the Sheriff; Immigration and Citizens Enforcement (ICE), etc.) a hierarchy exists: Local, State, & Federal. Rulings of the California State Supreme Court ‘are final rulings’ unless appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, which has the ultimate, final authority based on the U.S. Constitution. Do take time to read it, especially its first ten amendments known as the “Bill of Rights”. As a nation, all are governed by the ‘Rule of Law’ to establish social order. As citizens, we have agreed to ‘abide by these laws’. In addition, ‘English Common Law’ exists and is used, but most of it is unwritten and is based upon historical tradition and practices. Getting back to our journey through existing ‘Law Enforcement and Justice’ system, If a case requires being heard by a jury, then, that jury should represent the diversity of your community. Jury member selection is monitored by the Judge; your lawyer and prosecuting lawyer will have several pre-emptive dismissals of potential jurors. The goal is to have a jury of peers who may

be objective. Fair, and reasonable. When the jury finds you to be innocent, you will be released immediately. When you are ‘found guilty as charged’, a sentence is imposed; then you are handed over to jail officers who will provide protective custody with emphasis upon ‘SSSS’ (Surveillance, Suppression, Safety and Security). A judge is obliged to apply current existing laws. Judges may not do any ‘court legislation’. Only judges and courts are bound to follow existing laws. A great variation regarding interpretation may happen when rulings made in one court are compared to those of another court (or community). The most important features of any court are those of being fair, uniform in the interpretations & application of existing law and related standards. During the ‘sentencing phase’, some judges are creative by substituting public service work’ or by requiring therapy and/or training. Other issues have to do with being on probation or supervised parole because of good behavior; or being allowed compassionate leave. However, recent events indicate that double standards exists based on use of profiles, racism, gender, nationality, religion, and ideologies applied. The Crime Act 1995 signed by President Clinton was the basis of ‘Three Strikes’ punitive measures which resulted, over time with individuals being sent to prison. Many of these are victims of the current ‘Law Enforcement and Justice’ system. Especially youth who had made very poor personal decisions about drug use, petty criminal acts, sexual acts, and violence. The result was overcrowded county, state and federal prisons. Consider the outcome of the actions taken by Governor Ronald Reagan’s Administration which closed down

almost all inpatient mental health institutions. Their mentally challenged patients were dumped onto the streets of our urban centers where, when each mentally challenged individual misbehaved in public, each was arrested by local police. The outcome is that jails and prisons have become the caretakers of individuals having mental health challenges. This mentally challenged cohort does not belong in a jail or prison. Recently the question was posed, “Should Insane Asylums be brought back?” Society’s response must be “NO”. Recently, CA’s Governor Jerry Brown’s initiated the ‘Realignment Program’ which returned 1,200+ selected inmates back to county jails to mitigate the extreme overcrowding of CA State Prisons. EO asked, “is this the reason the Sheriff ’s proposed building additional jail facilities costing $240 million?” Public hearings are recommended to enable the community to become informed, enable input about having full assessments, continuing education, application of mental health therapies, behavioral modification, rehabilitation and training. The application of recent knowledge and technology may permit even more creative sentencing’ which require the individual to serve his/her sentence while remaining in the family & community setting, continuing school, job training, therapy while learning to be a contributing community participant (social & economic). This form of ‘doing time’ reduces recidivism; is more humane and effective in teaching individuals to stop making ‘personal destructive decisions’. The price tag difference is SIGNIFICANT: $14,000 per year per supervised parolee compared to $45,000 per year per prison inmate.

los que siguen aquí entre nosotros, gracias al acto de generosidad que significó donar un órgano para dar la posibilidad de la existencia a un enfermo que de otra manera perdería la vida.

José López Zamorano LAREDHISPANA.ORG Hace muchos años, cuando gestioné mi primera licencia de conducir en los Estados Unidos, decidí convertirme en un donador de órganos. No tuve que pensarlo. Fue una reacción instintiva, natural, elegir darle una segunda oportunidad en la vida a alguien más en caso de un accidente fatal.  Hoy en día, millones de personas que residen en este país son donadores de órganos. Es un auténtico ejército de voluntarios sin más comandante que una profunda convicción por el amor a la vida y por la solidaridad con el prójimo.  Las victorias de este ejército se pueden contar en miles de madres, padres, hijos o abue-

Pero las cifras también muestran que millones de personas optaron por ignorar la opción de ser donante. Quiero creer que para estas personas la reacción fue automática debido a los muchos mitos alrededor de la donación de órganos. Uno de los principales mitos es la idea popular de que si somos donantes, los hospitales no se esforzarán por salvarnos en caso de emergencia. Nada más lejos de la verdad, pues los médicos son observantes de un juramento en el que se comprometen ética y moralmente para preservar la vida del paciente a toda costa. Otros no lo hacen por sentirse o muy jóvenes, o muy viejos, o enfermos. Es cierto que las personas menores de 18 años requieren un permiso especial de sus padres para ser donantes de órganos. Pero no hay edad límite para donar y sólo un médico puede descartar a un donante por cuestiones de salud. En este momento más de

100,000 personas en los Estados Unidos esperan un órgano que les pueda salvar la vida. Se estima que cada persona que dona sus órganos, puede mejorar la vida de hasta 50 personas. Y es este es el momento ideal para convertirse en parte del ejército de donadores, pues ya comienza Semana Nacional para la Concientización de la Donación en los Grupos Minoritarios. Sin embargo, para muchos los órganos estarán disponibles demasiado tarde. Esto es particularmente cierto para los latinos, que padecemos enfermedades crónicas como la diabetes o hipertensión que afectan órganos como el riñón, el páncreas y el corazón. Nuestra demanda de órganos es más alta que para otros grupos étnicos. Los datos confirman que ser donante es un acto de generosidad y solidaridad con la vida humana, y está lleno de beneficios. Infórmate sobre cómo convertirte en donante de órganos y súmate al ejército creciente de personas que decidió donar la oportunidad de la vida y la salud.

BUSINESS

Suzanne Potter CALIFORNIA NEWS SERVICE Uber is partnering with “Life Reimagined,” a subsidiary of AARP, to hire active seniors to become partnerdrivers. Nationally, Uber said it needs to add hundreds of thousands of people to its workforce - so “LIfe Reimagined” will offer workshops across California and information online to get people started. Adam Sohn, vice president for strategic initiatives at Life Reimagined, called the two organizations a natural fit since the ride-sharing app allows seniors to monetize one of their biggest assets - their vehicle. “We thought that would be a really positive opportunity for people in the Life Reimagined community to earn additional income, to be more selfempowered,” he said, “and maybe

starting their own business by just taking their car out of their driveway.” Uber said more than half of its current drivers are age 40 and older, and 24 percent are 50 or older. To qualify to drive for Uber, a driver needs insurance, a clean driving record and a car that is less than 10 years old. Sohn said studies show that older people are more careful on the road than are younger drivers, making them ideal candidates to drive for Uber. “Uber is also excited about the level of engagement from these more experienced drivers,” he said. “and the level of safety that the passengers will enjoy.” Part of the new agreement is that drivers who sign up for Uber through Life Reimagined get a $35 bonus after they complete 10 trips. Information is on either the Uber or Life Reimagined websites.

La empresa afirma que, a nivel nacional, necesita agregar cientos de miles a su fuerza de trabajo. Por tal motivo, “Life Reimagned” ofrecera talleres en todo California ademas de informacion en linea, para que la gente pueda comenzar. Asi lo explica Adam Sohn, vicepresidente de iniciativas estrategicas para “Life Reimagined”.

Sohn dice que los estudios muestran que la gente mayor es mas cuidadosa al manejar que los conductores jovenes, lo que les hace candidatos ideales para manejar para Uber. “La organizacion Uber tambien esta emocionada por el nivel de compromiso de estos conductores con mas experiencia, y por el nivel de seguridad que disfrutaran sus pasajeros.” Parte del nuevo acuerdo es que los conductores que se inscriben a Uber a traves de “Life Reimagined” reciben un bono de 35 dolares tras completar sus primeros 10 viajes.

Eduardo Sayan VISA USA En la comunidad latina, con frecuencia encontramos a nuestros hijos empezando con su primer trabajo tan pronto pueden para empezar a ayudar con los gastos familiares. Esto es particularmente cierto durante los meses del verano, cuando nuestros niños tienen más “tiempo libre”. Sin embargo, el hecho de que dejen de ir a la escuela no significa que deban dejar de aprender. Es más, el verano es la mejor época para enseñarles a sus hijos cómo manejar y ahorrar el dinero que ganan con su esfuerzo. De hecho, es una oportunidad para que los padres y los hijos aprendan juntos. Cuando llegue el primer cheque de pago del sueldo de nuestros jóvenes trabajadores, nuestra primera idea pudiera

ser la de cobrarlo, convertirlo en un giro bancario y pagar algunas de nuestras cuentas. Aún antes de actuar con esta idea en mente, la Campaña Hispana de Educación Financiera de Visa tiene un plan para asegurar que el dinero que sus niños ganen con su esfuerzo les sirva para aprender, recompensarlos y beneficiarlos a todos a corto y a largo plazo. Prepare un presupuesto El salario mínimo en los Estados Unidos es de $5.15 la hora. Un joven adulto que gane esta cantidad y trabaje 40 horas a la semana ganará $206 por semana antes de impuestos. Es importante que esta cantidad se use prudentemente. Si el dinero de su cheque de pago que su joven adulto lleva a casa es de $150 después de impuestos, éste es un ejemplo de cómo podría verse su presupuesto: Ropa y artículos escolares

para regresar a la escuela /$30 Gastos familiares/ $50 Dinero para diversiones /$50 Fondo para estudios universitarios /$20 Abra una cuenta de cheques La mejor experiencia que una persona joven pueda tener es abrir su primera cuenta de cheques. Eso les dará un enorme sentido de logro y desde el principio empezarán a manejar su dinero de la manera correcta. Con una cuenta de cheques, pueden hacer su contribu-

ción a los gastos familiares sin tener que esperar en las largas filas que existen cuando se compran giros bancarios y sin el peligro de que les roben el dinero que ganaron con esfuerzo o de perderlo por otros riesgos en el hogar, gracias a la comodidad que proporcionan los cheques. Está protegido y seguro, y con frecuencia, hay representantes que hablan español y están dispuestos a hacer que esto suceda. Abra una cuenta de ahorros Igualmente importante como es ayudar a los seres

queridos, los trabajos durante el verano pueden ayudar a nuestros hijos a que ahorren para los momentos más importantes de sus vidas. El abrir una cuenta de ahorros ayuda a nuestros hijos a ahorrar dinero para gastos futuros, de modo que estos gastos no se conviertan en una carga económica más adelante. Algunos ejemplos serían ropa para ir de regreso a la escuela; la toga, el birrete y las fotografías para la graduación; viajes de estudio y el fondo para sus estudios universitarios. Es tan importante ahorrar para el futuro como lo es contribuir para las necesidades inmediatas de nuestra familia. Aprendan juntos El abrir una cuenta de cheques y una de ahorros pudiera ser una primera experiencia tanto para usted como para sus hijos. En realidad, esta experiencia pudiera producir un poco de temor debido

a los mitos que existen sobre los bancos. Es importante saber que todos los bancos de los EE.UU. aseguran su dinero hasta $100,000; hay representantes que hablan español en muchas de las localidades y manejar tu dinero a través de un banco es mucho más seguro y cómodo que manejar el dinero en efectivo. Además de disminuir sus probabilidades de ser una víctima de un robo o de un asalto, usted y su familia no tienen que preocuparse de perder el dinero en efectivo. Tendrá la tranquilidad de saber que todo por lo que ha trabajado con tanto esfuerzo estará protegido. Visite Su Dinero de Visa USA: Destrezas Prácticas Para Toda La Vida en http://www. practicalmoneyskills.com/ spanish/ para obtener una guía completa para ayudar a sus hijos a que aprendan, aprecien y manejen el dinero de la manera correcta.

County in Compliance with Lactation Accommodation Policy San Jose, CA – The Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday adopted a Proclamation declaring the month of August “Breastfeeding Awareness Month” in Santa Clara County and celebrated the compliance of the County with its Lactation Accommodation Policy. In April, the County Board adopted new standards for the “Family Friendly Workplace Award” program which required dedicated lactation rooms in new large County Facilities. That action established the County as the first large employer to adopt the Awards standards. Since then, the County has made it a top priority to reach compliance with the Lactation Accommodation Policy. Now, with 12 dedicated lactation rooms at 9 different Major County Facilities, Santa Clara County has achieved

compliance with the Policy. “The County’s prompt compliance with the Lactation Accommodation Policy demonstrates our commitment to mothers and families in the community,” said Supervisor Cindy Chavez. Breastfeeding is a crucial first step in protecting the health of mothers and infants, nourishing infants, and building a foundation for a healthy immune system. However, lack of support at work and in the community is a major barrier to breastfeeding mothers. It is important that we continue to encourage residents to learn about the benefits of breastfeeding, support mothers who choose and are able to breastfeed, stand in solidarity with mothers who are unable or choose not to breastfeed, and support families and organizations that improve the health of babies, their families, and our entire community.

I am interested in learning how to drive. How can I find a credible driving school? The DMV offers a webpage where you can find helpful information about selecting a driving school for driver education and driver training. Simply visit www.dmv.ca.gov and in the search box enter Selecting a Driving School. You should know that the DMV licenses professional schools and instructors in California and requires them to meet rigid qualifying standards and carry liability insurance, hold a bond, and maintain complete records for a DMV inspection. Also, if you use the services of a professional driving school, ask to see the instructor’s identification card. Instruc-

tors must pass a written examination every three years or show proof of continuing education in the traffic safety field. What is the purpose of the Renewal Identification Number that appears on my registration billing notice? The Renewal Identification Number is required when calling the DMV customer service center or using a field office self-service terminal to renew your vehicle registration. It is not required if you plan to renew your registration using the DMV website. To locate a self-service terminal near you, visit: http:// www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/dmv/ detail/fo/fo_sst/. My car is registered, but I cannot drive it because I blew the engine, and therefore I cancelled my insurance. Do I need to report that to DMV? Yes. If your registration fees are due within 60 days of the vehicle registration expiration date, you may place your vehicle on a Planned NonOperation status and pay the $19 fee. If your vehicle is not within 75 days of the registration renewal, you may place your vehicle on an Affidavit of Non-Use (REG 5090). Make sure to park your non-operational vehicle on private property and not a public street. Make the changes online at http://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/dmv/detail/online/vrir/ vr_sb1500anu or download the form and mail it to the DMV.

CA, Matt “The Megatoad” Stonie of San José, CA, did something that no-one in San José, CA had ever seen before: He ate 101 tacos in 8 minutes. This incredible display of power and speed took place amid the Dia San José Festival. Stonie was fast throughout and did not need Chestnut, J by his left or right to inspire him to greatness. The need to win came from within. The need to create history came from within. Eight minutes later, those things that were within Matt “The Megatoad” Stonie had new neighbors, as 101 tacos were also within him. It was a great day. Not a great day to be a taco, however, it must be said. This year the table has been set, and we excited to announce that Matt “The

Megatoad” Stonie will defend his title as the Chachos Taco Champion and work towards breaking his own record and fending off any want to be champions.

Mayor Liccardo announced Tuesday that Lee Wilcox, the Interim Mayor’s Budget Director who has been serving since January, has been appointed the Budget Director, leading strategic development of budget and fiscal matters. Wilcox, who has worked in the San Jose City Manager’s office since 2008 prior to joining the Mayor’s staff, had previously served as the Assistant to the City Manager/Downtown Manager.   “Lee brings a combination of budget and management experience that was a tremendous asset to the Mayor’s office, City Council and

Administration during our first budget process as it was unanimously approved,” said Mayor Liccardo. Wilcox’s service over the past seven months as Interim Mayor’s Budget Director has been invaluable to helping Mayor Liccardo as well as the new Councilmembers and their staffs through a successful transition to their new roles. He has worked effectively with the City Manager’s Budget Office to help ensure that the City’s annual budget and the Mayor’s Budget Messages were in practical alignment to accomplish high priority goals for the community in a fiscally responsible manner.   “I am excited and honored to serve in the Mayor’s office

and to continue to work for this great City and organization,” said Wilcox. Following his experience as Chief of Staff for former Councilmember Nancy Pyle, Wilcox joined OED in 2008 as the City’s first Downtown Manager, a position created to be the clear go-to leader for Downtown on behalf of the City.

Initiative Strengthens San José’s Manufacturing Industry, Stimulates Jobs San José, CA CALIFORNIA

Mayor Sam Liccardo announced on Wednesday an initiative to preserve and strengthen manufacturing activity, broadening prosperity and creating a pathway to middle class jobs. Representatives from the City of San José, local manufacturing companies, workforce trainers, community colleges, and power suppliers endorsed

the Mayor’s initiative and their commitment to growing manufacturing jobs in San José. “In response to what I have heard from manufacturing companies on the challenges they face doing business, I am committed to collaborating with our partners to create a competitive envi-

ronment where they flourish and generate more tech manufacturing jobs,” said Mayor Sam Liccardo.   Through the initiative the City of San José will provide several incentives to strengthen its manufacturing industry, including: ·Providing permit fee waivers for manufacturing building retrofits, ·A 60-day permit approval process for expanding and relocating manufacturing companies, ·A 1% building and structures tax for new construction and tenant improvements for manufacturers, and ·Preserving scarce industrial lands to promote growth of the manufacturing sector.   Private sector incentives include: ·PG&E offering competitive economic development rates and expedited approval for

energy assessments, · Bloom Energy offering innovative ways to reduce energy costs, and · Community colleges working with Work2Future to provide skills training. The Mayor’s Manufacturing Initiative was launched at the Jabil Blue Sky Center in South San José.  Jabil has recently expanded its manufacturing operations and envisions continued future growth in the area.  “Jabil is profoundly committed to manufacturing in America and our innovative Blue Sky Center in San José is living proof,” said David Wahl, VP of Operations and General Manager of Jabil San José .  “We have built a world-class facility where innovators can bring their product ideas to life.  Blue Sky reflects our focus on expanding jobs in the manufacturing space and engaging youth in this compelling career path here in San José and the around the world.”

Manufacturers consistently report a shortage of skilled workers as a key challenge to expanding operations in the US.  In this regard, Jeff Ruster, Executive Director of Work2Future said that “I am working with local universities and colleges to align and expand training in applied engineering, machining skills, and product design to better reflect the skills and experience that are needed. We are committed to rolling out customized training programs that will support manufacturers in securing the skilled workforce they seek.”   PG&E and Bloom Energy representatives expressed their support to advancing Mayor Liccardo’s initiative as well.    Travis Kiyota, VP Corporate Affairs of PG&E committed to “helping local businesses in the City of San Jose grow through incentives including competitive economic development rates. When we do this we help businesses grow, save money and stay in California.”   Asim Hussein, VP Marketing and Customer Experience of Bloom Energy offered to “work in partnership with PG&E, the City of San José and local manufacturers to provide discounted rates to growing manufacturers.”   Mayor Liccardo believes that this initiative gives manufacturers the confidence they need that the City of San José and its partners are working towards providing the right economic climate for their growth.  In addition, these efforts to “next shore manufacturing” will promote opportunities to grow middle income jobs for San José’s unemployed and underemployed residents.

“Parenting is an extraordinarily rewarding life experience, and it is a long term responsibility,” said Supervisor Cindy Chavez, Chair of the Board of Supervisors Children, Seniors and Families Committee. “Regardless of family structure, child support helps parents maintain an active role in providing for the emotional and physical needs of their children, thereby ensuring that they grow into thriving, self-sufficient adults.” ment of children as healthy and productive adults.

The County of Santa Clara is joining Governor Jerry Brown, the State of California, and other local county child support agencies in recognizing August as Child Support Awareness Month. The observance focuses on the role parental, emotional and financial support play in the well-being and develop-

“Child support is an essential source of income for families, and it prevents many children from living in poverty,” said President Dave Cortese, County of Santa Clara Board of Supervisors. “When parents provide financial and emotional support, children have a better chance of prospering.”

The County of Santa Clara Department of Child Support Services (DCSS) collects over $91 million a year in child support. Approximately $3 million annually is received through cash payments. With an estimate of 37,500 cases and caseload sizes ranging between 150 to 550 per caseworker, the Department is the 9th largest local child support agency in California.

The Department of Child Support Services consistently strives to help parents better manage their child support obligations. Staff refers parents to community based organizations and resource programs that can help them address the significant barriers to staying involved in the lives of their children and complying with their courtordered child support obligations.

The Department of Child Support Services focuses on helping address the barriers that parents face in dealing with their child support obligations. Employees refer non-custodial parents to the Santa Clara County Fatherhood Collaborative for assistance addressing child visitation issues, participation in parenting workshops and support groups, access to job

training and education resources, and connection with advocates for positive fatherhood and male involvement. Additionally, parents are referred to the Family Law Facilitator’s Office for legal assistance, such as preparing court forms, legal self-help workshops, and custody-related issues. The employees of the County of Santa Clara Department of Child Support Services are celebrating Child Support Awareness Month by collecting staff donations to fund a Back-to-School Supplies Giveaway for their clients during the month of August, while supplies last. Nearly 400 supply bags will be given to client families during their visits. The supply bags include binder paper, folders, pencils, erasers and other items to help schoolaged children prepare for a productive upcoming school year.

“We understand that meeting their parental obligations to support their children can be challenging given stressful work and family demands,” said Ignacio J. Guerrero, Director of the County of Santa Clara Department of Child Support Services. “Our employees continue to go above and beyond our core mission of establishing and collecting child support payments. Our goal is to ensure children and family clients are receiving the support necessary to help children become well-adjusted adults.”

Headley No.115PR177075 A Petition for Probate has been filed by George D Headley Jr, Roberto E. Headley, in the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara. The petition requests that George D Headley Jr, Roberto E. Headley be appointed as personal representatives to administer the estate of the decedent, Zolia A. Headley. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the  Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take any actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consent to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: 09/30/2015 at 9:30am, Dept. 10, located at 191 North First Street, San Jose, CA 95113. If you object to the granting of this petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either: 1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or 2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250.

Arturo Hilario EL OBSERVADOR This past weekend thousands converged into the Golden Gate Park Polo Fields to hear musical acts that ranged from hip hop to psychedelic, eat gourmet foods on the go, and be part of the 7 th annual Outside Lands in San Francisco. Headlining the 3 day music festival were Elton John, Kendrick Lamar, and Mumford and Sons among others. The chilly days and cool nights are a temperate opposite to the hot desert climate of Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival which goes in Indio California. Outside Lands also differs in its focus: environmental awareness, art, wine and food. Being in the Silicon Valley, it only makes sense that this festival is progressive in its pursuit of clean environment, as seen by

the masses of volunteers in green tees constantly scouring the park lands with clean up bag in hand. All food containers are also compostable, easily discarded in one of the many available trash/compostable bins at the event. Their are many pieces of art which form walls on the edges of some of the park every year, with new pieces of art being created at each festival by acclaimed artist. These happen on the spot, so patrons can enjoy the music while watching these pieces being made. From happy cartoon characters to aliens and monsters, these are some of the most eclectic pieces, much like the city itself. From “Wine Lands”, “Beer Lands” and “Choco Lands” Outside Lands Music Festival has food and drinks covered. Priding itself in being “a mecca for food and drink”, the long lines were seen for favorite picks such as chicken and waffles, pork belly burgers, and

a dizzying array of desserts. The music of course was eclectic, including indie folkers Mumford and Sons, the hip hop and jazz stylings of Kendrick Lamar, as well as festival veterans Cold War Kids. As the night loomed the festival gave way to the array of purple, green and blue lights illuminating the treeline of the polo fields, turning the crisp cold nights into a music venue worthy of being called ‘awe inspiring’. As Sunday night closed, you had the final two acts, Sir Elton John on the main stage, and electronic music act Axwell & Ingrosso on the other end of the park. Two very different musical genres and styles, but to each one thousands flocked and delighted in their presence as the final curtains fell on Sunday night. And so Outside Lands, tucked into Golden Gate Park, brought its charm out in full force for fans of music, art and food.

Artist Submissions due by Friday, September 4, 2015 San Francisco CALIFORNIA San Francisco General Hospital Foundation (the Foundation) Chief Executive Officer Amanda Heier announced July 31st that the Foundation is now accepting submissions from Bay Area artists for the annual ‘Hearts in San Francisco’ project and public art series. The selected Heart Sculpture artworks will be a part of the Foundation’s Hearts Signature Events - Heroes & Hearts luncheon and Hearts After Dark - at AT&T Park on Thursday, February 18, 2016. Proceeds from the auction of the Heart Sculptures benefit life-enhancing programs and initiatives at San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center (The General), the Heart of our City. ‘Hearts in San Francisco’ artworks combined with Heroes & Hearts and Hearts After Dark proceeds (2004 - 2015) have raised more than $13.4 million for the Foundation and programs including the Avon Comprehensive Breast Care Center, Children’s Health Center, HIV/AIDS Division Positive Health Program, Acute Care for Elders (ACE) Unit and more. Design renderings may be submitted online at sfghf.org/CreateAHeart by the Friday, September 4, 2015 deadline.

“As artists, it’s not everyday that the opportunity comes along to create something beautiful for the city you love,” said 2015 Heart Artist, William Westley of Polaroid SF. “The General is such a incredible institution; it felt great to be able to help them out through our art. Seeing people react to the finished Heart made all the time and effort we put in well worth it.” “I had admired the Hearts my whole life, seeing them all over the Bay Area, and I was happy to find out that anyone could submit a design,” said 2015 Heart Artist Kristin Farr. “It was a challenge and an honor to paint one of these big, bulbous, beautiful Hearts, and I was grateful and proud to have the opportunity to use my love for painting to support The General.” Since the project’s inception in 2004, Bay Area artists have created more than 200 Hearts that have gone on display all across the city of San Francisco and beyond, from Union Square to the lobbies or conference rooms of corporate supporters throughout the Bay Area, including Wells Fargo, Intel and Chevron. Each Heart is a unique, one-of-a-kind work of art and celebrates the diversity of San Francisco through designs made of acrylic paints, mosaic art, mixed media sculptures, Swarovski crystals and more.

Artists have the option to propose a design for either a Large Heart (5’ tall x 6’ wide x 40” deep) Table Top Heart (16” tall x 17” wide x 8” deep), or Mini Heart (7” tall x 6” wide x 2” deep). Select Large Hearts will have the opportunity to be displayed in San Francisco’s Union Square beginning in February 2016.

Artist Submission Details: Artists interested in applying must complete an application and submit with a full-color design rendering (8.5” x 11” or larger) on or before September 4, 2015. Design renderings may be submitted online at sfghf.org/CreateAHeart. Artists are allowed to submit more than one design entry. Entrants must provide their own workspace, and be able to meet the artwork completion deadline of November 13, 2015. Artwork guidelines, official regulations, and artist application, is available at sfghf.org/CreateAHeart. Artist selection is conducted by a committee comprised of San Francisco General Hospital Foundation staff, board members and community members.

flejo de las comunidades que sirven. Más de 150 universidades completaron el extenso cuestionario de Sierra sobre prácticas sustentables en los campus. Usando un sistema de calificaciones a la medida, los investigadores de Sierra clasificaron a los centros basándose en sus compromisos a mantener altos estándares medioambientales. “Nos sirve de gran inspiración cómo las universidades están liderando el combate contra el cambio climático”, dijo Avital Adams, la editora de estilo de Sierra Magazine. “Desde la construcción verde hasta el ahorro de agua pasando por la disponibilidad de cientos de clases sobre ecología, los esfuerzos de estas escuelas

son profundos, y están cambiando no sólo la fisonomía de los campus, sino también las mentes de los estudiantes que están educando”. Estas son las 10 universidades más verdes según Sierra Magazine: University of California, Irvine (24% de estudiantes hispanos) University of California, Davis (18% de estudiantes hispanos) University of Wisconsin— Oshkosh Colorado State University (Fort Collins, CO) Oberlin College (Oberlin, OH) University of Connecticut University of California, San Diego (17.5% de estudiantes hispanos) University of Washington,

Seattle Lewis & Clark College (Portland, OR) University of California, Berkeley (13.6% de estudiantes hispanos) Este es el sexto año consecutivo que UC Irvine entra entre las 10 mejores, y es la segunda vez consecutiva que se clasifica en primer lugar, gracias en parte a tres proyectos solares en su campus, una planta de generación eólica de 19 megavatios y metas de eficacia energética que se superan consistentemente. Estos son otros factores que lanzaron a estas escuelas al

“top 10” de nuestra lista: restaurantes que sirven alimentos orgánicos y locales, sistemas de desecho que limitan el uso de basurales, opciones de transporte que ahorran el uso de carros a estudiantes y empleados, programas académicos que se centran intensamente en la ecología, y métodos efectivos que ahorran agua y energía. “La juventud comprende la necesidad de confrontar la disrupción climática y fomentar la economía. Por eso es que universitarios de todo el país se han unido a la Coalición Estudiantil del Sierra Club y su la campaña

“Sieze the Grid” (mejorar el tendido eléctrico), el cual busca el 100% de uso de energía local en los campus”, dijo Karissa Gerhke, directora nacional de la Coalición Estudiantil del Sierra Club. “Las Universidades Verdes son una selección de centros que han dado pasos concretos hacia estas metas. Nos complace trabajar con estas universidades para continuar el camino hacia una energía 100% limpia”.

That’s the request in a legal petition filed Thursday by the Center for Biological Diversity to the U.S. Interior and Transportation Departments. The request comes in the wake of the Refugio oil spill in May near Santa Barbara, when a 28-year-old pipeline owned by Plains All American burst, killing hundreds of animals and fouling 100 miles of coastline. “That’s just not acceptable,” says Kristen Monsell, staff attorney with the Center for Biological Diversity. “The federal government needs to step up and take a more active role, so that problem areas are identified and fixed before another oil spill happens, not after.” Under the current system, the oil companies police

themselves, doing their own inspections on pipes in environmentally sensitive areas, including the ocean, approximately every five years. But the preliminary government probe into the Refugio spill indicated much more serious corrosion than the company had reported. The petition doesn’t specify a deadline for the additional inspections, but calls the need “immediate.” Opponents point out government inspections would cost taxpayers millions. Monsell counters that the cost of not doing them would be much higher.

“The coastal environment just can’t handle another spill like this,” she says. “If the federal government doesn’t have the resources to do these inspections, then it really should just decommission all of this aging offshore infrastructure.” The petition asks for the inspection of at least 213 miles of pipeline in federal waters and state near-shore waters. Monsell explains much of it was built in the late 1960s and early 1980s, making it older and more vulnerable than the pipeline that burst.

EN CINES EL 21 DE AGOSTO AEM Quienes hayan podido ver el trailer de “Hitman: Agent 47”, la gran superproducción del cine de acción que 20th Century Fox estrenará en todos los cines del país este 21 de agosto, seguramente se habrán quedado intrigados por su inusual propuesta. Un hombre misterioso que tiene un código de barras implantado en su nuca y que parece ser absolutamente mortífero a la hora de liquidar contricantes, una chica desconcertada que debe decidirse entre seguir a un hombre apuesto, encarnado por el mismísimo Zachary Quinto de “Star Trek”, quien parece ser su amigo, y el hombre de cabeza rapada que aparentemente quiere matarla, pero que según vemos después, en realidad está defendiéndola de una conspiración en la que todos los que los rodean están involucrados. Y aunque haya que ir a ver la película para terminar de descifrar de qué va la cosa, algo queda absolutamente claro: para rodar las impresionantes escenas de acción que sin lugar a dudas definen la propuesta, no se han escatimado recursos. Basado en el popular videojuego que fue lanzado originariamente para PC una década y media atrás, y que ha tenido suficiente éxito como para haber generado 5 secuelas, la última de las cuales llegará a las tiendas en diciembre de este año, “Hitman: Agent 47” ha logrado trasladar a la pantalla grande la intensidad y la complejidad de esta historia de espionaje que alcanzó enormes picos de popularidad. En los hechos, esta no es la primera vez que se intenta llevar las aventuras del agente 47 a la pantalla grande. En 2007, Fox estrenó una predecesora que con el simple título de “Hitman” contaba en su elenco con Timothy Olyphant, Dougray Scott y la bella ucraniana Olga Kurylenko. El nuevo film, una mirada completamente nueva a la franquicia, marca el debut en el cine de ficción del laureado realizador de videos musicales Aleksander Bach, y fue rodado en Berlin y en Singapur, dos ciudades espectaculares que ciertamente han sido muy bien utilizadas por esta nueva voz cinematográfica. En la historia, tendremos que ir descubriendo quién es quién una complicada confabulación de la mano de la protagonista, Katia van Dees, encarnada por la ascendente Hannah Ware, a quien recordamos por su participación en las series “Betratyal” y “Boss”, y quien también ha actuado en “Oldboy” y en “Shame”. Ella emergerá de años de vivir escondida y pronto descubrirá que posee un poder especial para percibir que es lo que está por ocurrir. Decidida a encontrar a su padre, a quien no ve desde hace muchos años, Katia también se enterará y no de la mejor manera que son muchos los que están interesados en capturarla. La clave de todo estará, sin embargo, en el misterioso hombre con el código de barras en la nuca, quien sólo usa como nombre Agente 47, un singular homenaje a los 46 que lo precedieron. ¿Quienes eran? ¿Y por qué él parece verdaderamente indestructible? Preciso, implacable y verdaderamente elegante a la hora de despachar a un enemigo, no va a parar hasta liquidarlo, aunque el mismo se sorprenderá de los sentimientos que de vez en cuando aparecen y parecen interferir en la misión. Otro actor en pleno ascenso, Rupert Friend, el británico que encarna a Peter Quinn en la exitosa “Homeland” , y quien también ha dejado su marca en el cine con sus papeles en “The Young Victoria”, “Cheri”, “The Boy in the Striped Pijamas” y “Pride & Prejudice”, es el encargado de interpretarlo. Y aunque contar de que van sus papeles sería revelar demasiado sobre el argumento, hay que mencionar que en el elenco de esta película plena de estilizadas escenas de acción realizadas a una escala global también participan el alemán Thomas Kretschmann y el irlandés Ciarán Hinds.

VIBRAS

Mario Jiménez Castillo EL OBSERVADOR Hace unos días me llamó mucho la atención un video de YouTube en el cual un espiritista que se hace llamar “ el caminante solitario”, realizaba una sesión espiritista invocando el espíritu del Papa Juan Pablo II, ahora declarado santo de la iglesia católica. Las sesiones espiritistas siempre han llamado la atención de la gente porque aunque sí existen mediums capaces de entablar contacto con los espíritus y entidades de otras dimensiones, también existe mucho fraude alrededor de este tema. Durante la sesión espiritista con Juan Pablo II, se hicieron varias preguntas con respecto a la iglesia católica. Me sorprendí mucho con cada una de las respuestas y aunque muchas de ellas son rumores que han ido creciendo, resulta difícil el admitir que el clero católico haya sido y siga siendo capaz de tantos hechos vergonzosos y terribles.

siglos. El Vaticano es dueño de mucho del dinero y del oro que se otorga en créditos a distintos países del mundo, son ellos los creadores de la deuda externa, son grandes accionistas de los bancos más poderosos y acaudalados, asimismo poseen una de las fábricas de armamento más grandes del mundo. La prostitución con jovencitas y jovencitos en el Vaticano ya no se puede ignorar ni tapar con un dedo. El Papa anterior Benedicto XVI, se vio obligado a renunciar al observar tanta podredumbre y literalmente fue silenciado. Muchos pasajes de la Biblia han sido alterados por los Papas en siglos anteriores y otros libros de la misma fueron extraídos completamente para poder idiotizar a las masas respecto a los conceptos religiosos más trascendentales. Uno de esos libros extraídos es el evangelio según Santo Tomás Apóstol, en ese libro se relata entre otros sucesos, la parte humana y sentimental de Jesucristo quién según Santo Tomás, tenía esposa e hijos. ¿Por qué la iglesia católica nos ha hecho creer algo diferente?

El espíritu del Papa en cuestión dijo que estaba muy triste y decepcionado del Vaticano, a quien él considera “una empresa” y no una verdadera institución espiritual y religiosa al servicio de los creyentes como nos han hecho creer durante

sonas que durante su niñez y adolescencia fueron molestados sexualmente por sacerdotes enfermos, y lo peor del caso es que la iglesia no hace nada al respecto, sólo unas huecas disculpas ofrecidas que no ayudan a nadie. La fe católica es hermosa nos dijo Rafael, quién prefirió permanecer en el anonimato, sin embargo; fui víctima de dos sacerdotes que me acosaron sexualmente cuando cursaba la primaria y secundaria. Gracias al cielo estamos viviendo una época de mayor entendimiento y están saliendo a la luz por fin, las atrocidades cometidas por muchos sacerdotes quienes se han visto envueltos en narcotráfico, trata de personas, robos, estafas, prostitución, etc. Ya no nos creemos el cuento que el curita del pueblo es casi un santo...Eso sólo ocurre en las telenovelas pero en la vida real las cosas son muy distintas, señaló Rafael. Llegará el día en que estos señores tengan que dar cuentas por todas sus maldades y parece que ese día llegará pronto. Antes de despedirse, de la sesión espiritista, el supuesto espíritu de Juan Pablo II, afirmó que un escándalo peor que el de la pedofilia sacudirá los cimientos del Vaticano, el cuál colapsará debido al rechazo y repudio del mundo entero. Dios nos libre de todo mal. Amén.


Shelly Palmer If you’re a white-collar worker (a person who makes a living translating the value of your intellectual property into wealth) as opposed to a manual laborer (a person who translates the value of their mechanical energy into wealth), get ready for a wild ride. Remember the receptionist on the 15th floor who used to take excellent phone messages on those adorable pink pre-printed message pads? Her job predeceased yours by a few short Internet years. Why? The receptionist was replaced with voicemail, door buzzers and a few other disparate automated systems that were more efficient and materially reduced expenses. Why bring up such an obvious piece of recent history? Well … as it turns out, your job may be the next – but you probably don’t see it coming. After all, you have domain expertise that machines could never match (at least, not in the near future), so your job is safe. Right? The Answer Is Not Binary Some jobs are more secure than others. It depends where your core competency sits on Ray Kurzweil’s “calculations per second per $1,000 of computer cost over time” curve. The end of your whitecollar job is scheduled just past that point. And because of the exponential nature of this curve, it could be way sooner than you think. But … how soon is soon? At this moment, the rate of technological change is the slowest you will ever experience for the rest of your life. There is plenty of historical data to back up this statement; my favorite writing on the subject is Ray Kurzweil’s 2001 essay entitled “The Law of Accelerating Returns,” which begins, An analysis of the history of technology shows that tech-

nological change is exponential, contrary to the commonsense ‘intuitive linear’ view. So we won’t experience 100 years of progress in the 21st century—it will be more like 20,000 years of progress (at today’s rate). The ‘returns,’ such as chip speed and costeffectiveness, also increase exponentially. There’s even exponential growth in the rate of exponential growth. Within a few decades, machine intelligence will surpass human intelligence, leading to the Singularity— technological change so rapid and profound it represents a rupture in the fabric of human history. Can You Think Exponentially? If, in this particular pond, lily pads double every day, and if it will take 30 days for the pond to be completely covered with lily pads, what day is depicted in this photograph? The pond is roughly half covered, so it’s day 29. Most of us would not have noticed the impending bio-disaster for the first 29 days. We’d just wake up on day 30 to a fully covered pond. Such is the na-

ture of exponential change when observed by human beings. We’re just not wired to understand that tomorrow will be nothing like today – it looks the same. We wake up, the sun comes up, we eat breakfast and go to work, but all around us technological progress is accelerating at a fierce pace. Man-Machine Partnerships First If you move numbers from one cell in Excel to another for a living, or if you move markers on a Gantt chart to track production progress and manage projects, you’ve probably created some macros to help minimize the tediousness of your job. In

practice, you’ve already created a man-machine partnership. If you’re great at it, you may be more productive than other people who compete with you. Efficient manmachine partnerships are “the” key component to modern productivity. If you’re better using your tools, you will almost always be better than your competition. Interpretation and Analysis While it’s tedious to move numbers from box to box, the reason you do it is so that you (or someone else) can analyze and interpret their meaning. This may be done with some

automation, but people usually add human narrative that adds understandable causality to the data – for example: “We sold more of the blue widgets this season because the top quintile of two-headed Martians think they complement their green eyes.” Of course, you only need causality and human narrative if humans are needed to make the data actionable. If computers are going to make the data actionable, a human narrative is meaningless. What You Can Do to Save Yourself First, technological progress is neither good nor bad; it just is. There’s no point in worrying about it, and there is certainly no point trying to add some narrative about the “good ol’ days.” It won’t help anyone. The good news is that we know what’s coming. All we have to do is adapt. Adapting to this change is going to require us to understand how man-machine partnerships are going to evolve. This is tricky, but not

19

impossible. We know that machine learning is going to be used to automate many, if not most, low-level cognitive tasks. Our goal is to use our high-level cognitive ability to anticipate what parts of our work will be fully automated and what parts of our work will be so hard for machines to do that man-machine partnership is the most practical approach. With that strategy, we can work on adapting our skills to become better than our peers at leveraging man-machine partnerships. We’ve always been tool-users; now we will become tool-partners. Where Does This Ultimately Lead? Uber drivers will ultimately be replaced by self-driving cars. You will press a button, the car will show up, and it will take you where you want to go. What will drivers do then? Hold on – that’s not going to happen for a hundred years! Maybe, but I’ve got some lily pads that beg to differ with you.
