OPINION

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR Sometime ago I learned that every now and then one must step back and look at everything from the a 'global perspective'. I also learned everyone(thing) is related in a dynamic equilibrium. As humans, we take for granted the essential water resources will always be available. Not so. The San Luis reservoir is at an all-time low at 10% of its total capacity. The global warming is leading to climate changes. The homeostasis we are accustomed to is no more. The five years of drought have stressed our ecosystem in California so that water management is probably the most important issue we need to face. Is it wise to continue to depend upon seasonal rains to provide potable water needs? Governor Brown continues to support the Delta Twin Tunnel Project which will divert Sacramento River water across the San Joaquin/ Sacramento River Delta to the

pumping stations which will continue to convey that water south towards Los Angeles/ Imperial Valley to satisfy their projected needs. Today's news is that CA Agribusiness lost $600 Billion because of the current drought. Why not ask CA Agribusiness to invest in desalinization processes? When times are good, agribusiness uses up 90% of all available water for irrigation purposes (at a highly subsidized level).

Already, Los Angeles uses diverted natural water from the Colorado River, Owens Valley, San Joaquin river (and all its tributaries). And now the Sacramento River? The same diversion paradigm is being used to 'solve a future potable water supply' issue. Much controversy has occurred and will continue to occur because of antiquated laws and traditions regarding 'water rights' leading to another 'water war' as in its historical past. Recently, Ms. Norma Camacho, a Stanford civil engineer, was installed as interim CEO, Santa Clara Valley Water District. An issue she will address is that of ensuring that sufficient potable water is available for the Silicon Valley commerce operations as well as its

residents. What will SCVWD do when insufficient potable water supplies are not produced by the seasonal rains which have not performed during the past five years of drought? Recycling recovery efforts do extend, but do not ADD to existing water supplies.

What needs to be considered, despite its present high cost, is to ask Governor Brown to not build the Delta Twin Tunnel project, but rather divert those resources towards establishment of a statewide series of “Sea Water desalinization Plants” which will add to existing water supplies. One could be located at Alviso; another at East Palo Alto, and others along the coast. The electric power needed may be produced using reliable, sustainable energy from solar panels installed on roofs of existing and new urban buildings (eliminating the need to cover existing open spaces with solar farms). The electricity produced would be 'back-fed' through existing circuitry to the desalinization plants. Why do this? Because California's population is projected to increase to 50 million residents by 2050. That increased population, in my estimation, cannot be

provided with enough potable water to sustain human life. Each human being requires at least six glasses (12 oz.) per day to sustain the homeostasis required for life. CA's commerce will require more water too. The technology exists to plan and install a series of desalinization plants which will ADD potable water in sufficient volume to permit California's population to continue to reside here independent of natural rainfall or the lack thereof.

This 'desalinization alternative' will provide California with the resiliency to survive any drought including the present one because the resources exist to build for future needs despite the current cost which will drop with increased knowhow and best practices being applied. That Delta Twin Tunnel Project needs to be shelved because the natural channels already deliver existing water to the pumping stations. More importantly, Sacramento River water needs to remain flowing through the Delta to maintain the environment needed by the current flora and fauna.

The lack of potable water as distributed by current “Water Ownership law and traditions” has already been the basis under which East Palo Alto City Council did not approve the construction of several affordable housing projects. The developers were asked to shelve these housing projects until adequate and reliable potable water became available. So why not build a desalinization plant in East Palo Alto? Why try to reallocate existing potable water supply agreements when additional potable water could be produced from sea water available as close as the SF Bay? The same logic applies to locating a desalinization plant at Alviso to provide a reliable source of water which SCVWD can manage and distribute. Governor Brown is advised to step back and consider the need to do some serious resource management: water production planning & fair distribution. Ms. Norna Camacho could be our local champion to help determine an action plan needed to keep California in equilibrium with its water requirements. Let's do some basic water resource management planning for our future 2050 residents, OK.

BILINGÜISMO: SER O NO SER

José López Zamorano Red Hispana

Cuando mi familia llegó a los Estados Unidos hace más de dos décadas, recibimos una lección invaluable de un joven profesor de origen cubano en la escuela primaria de mis dos pequeños hijos en Miami, al darse cuenta que nos comunicábamos con ellos en un inglés rudimentario, para sumergirlos en un idioma que no era su lengua materna: "Por favor hablen con sus dos pequeños en español en casa para que nunca pierdan nuestro idioma. Por el inglés, no se preocupen, porque lo aprenderán en la escuela". Gracias a ese consejo mis hijos crecieron en este país, no sólo en un mundo bicultural sino bilingüe. Aunque surgieron algunas resistencias en el camino, especialmente en la adolescencia, ambos abrazaron sus dos idiomas como un patrimonio digno de orgullo y mi hija escogió al español como una de sus especialidades en la universidad. 

Soy testigo de los beneficios del bilingüismo. En el caso de mis hijos, no sólo preservó parte de su identidad, sino que les abrió un vasto mercado laboral y les ha permitido crecer profesionalmente en el apasionante mundo de la tecnología, donde el dominio de más de un idioma es una ventaja competitiva significativa en la economía globalizada.   Investigaciones científicas recientes confirman que el bilingüismo ofrece además beneficios cognoscitivos evidentes, como el mejoramiento de las funciones ejecutivas del cerebro y un blindaje contra el surgimiento de padecimientos como la demencia senil o el Alzheimer.  En otras palabras, ser bilingüe te hace no sólo más listo, sino más sano.  Actualmente una de cada cinco personas, es decir alrededor del 20 por ciento de la población residente en Estados Unidos, habla en su casa un idioma distinto del inglés, de acuerdo con la Encuesta Comunitaria Americana (ACS). 

Si mi aritmética no falla, más de 60 millones de residentes de Estados Unidos hablan otro idioma en casa. Es un ejército creciente que sólo puede contribuir aún más a enriquecer la experiencia americana.

TRAVEL SURVEY: SAFE OR SCAM?

Better Business Bureau

Have you recently received a survey in the mail asking questions about your household and transportation and transit routines? Were you afraid that it was a scam or attempt to steal personal information? If so, you’re not alone – and thankfully, you also have nothing to worry about!

Every five to seven years, the Federal Highway Administration conducts their National Household Travel Survey (NHTS), which provides the U.S. Department of Transportation and other local agencies with information about how the public uses transportation. Surveys will be mailed to approximately 130,000 randomly selected households, and the forms will be sent from March 31, 2016 through April 2017.

Those that are asked to participate will be sent a questionnaire from the U.S. Department of Transportation. It asks various questions about travel experiences, technology use, and household demographics; and the recipient is instructed to return the questionnaire in an enclosed, pre-paid envelope. If you receive something like this and want to make sure it’s legitimate, you can compare it to a sample of the questionnaire online at nhts. ornl.gov/2016/pub/recruitment.pdf. After sending in the questionnaire, households will be asked to answer a second set of questions online. The last time that the NHTS was sent out, many consumers contacted Better Business Bureau (BBB) offices asking if it was a scam. This time, the Federal Highway Administration reached out to BBB with a reminder about the survey so that we can best assist consumers when they inquire about it. Some people might have a gut reaction of “scam!” when they receive this survey. This may be because scams involving impersonation of the government and government officials are common: the IRS tax scam is one of the most popular scams out there, and reports of fraudulent “government grants” – that one has to either wire money or give away bank account information to receive – are common.

Survey scams are also commonly reported. Emails containing “customer surveys” in exchange for rewards are often fraudulent, and may steal financial information or download malware on to your computer. It’s smart to be wary of any unsolicited material you receive, whether it be through snail mail or e-mail. However, the NHTS is legitimate. If you’re randomly selected to take it, please do! As California, and especially the Bay Area becomes more congested, the government needs all the information it can get to figure out how to best meet the public’s needs. Even the most educated and savvy consumer can get confused about what is, and isn’t, a scam. That’s what your BBB is for! It’s always better to be safe than sorry, and double checking never hurts. Email info@ bbbemail.org, or visit our website, bbb.org, and someone will be happy to answer any questions you have. Looking at BBB Scam Tracker (bbb.org/scamtracker), can also give you an idea of scams happening in your area. According to BBB research, 80% of people say knowing about a particular scam helped them avoid an attempt. If you’ve encountered a scam, report it to BBB Scam Tracker to help warn other consumers and give a heads-up to BBB and law enforcement.

START THE CONVERSATION EARLY: TIPS ON KIDS AND ALCOHOL NAPSI

Talking to your kids about alcohol may feel like a daunting task, but doing so can help prevent future health challenges and risks. It’s important to broach the topic early: Many kids have their first drink as young as 9 years old, and 50 percent of 15-year-olds have tried alcohol. Young people often begin drinking alcohol after experiencing stress, peer pressure, and difficult life transitions such as moving or divorce. While many adolescents consider drinking to be a rite of passage, the reality is drinking poses a serious threat to a young person’s growing brain, development and overall health. By having several small, low-key conversations with your kids about alcohol, you can create a comfortable and open space for them to discuss the dangers of underage drinking and strategies for avoiding it, without feeling awkward. Studies show that parents have a significant effect on young people’s decisions about alcohol consumption, especially when they create supportive and nurturing environments in which their children can make their own decisions. And since so many

SUNDAY- 9:30AM

kids begin to use alcohol at a young age, the sooner you begin talking to your children about drinking, the better. “Parents are the number one influencers on a young person. If every parent communicated a strong message about underage drinking, we would already have a delay on the onset of alcohol use,” said Frances Harding, Director of SAMHSA’s Center for Substance Abuse Prevention. Teen alcohol consumption is a significant public health challenge nationwide. Nearly 23 percent of people between the ages of 12 and 20 are current alcohol users, according to the most recent National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) report, published annually by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). This age group consumes alcohol more than any other substance, including tobacco and other drugs. While teens tend to drink less frequently than adults, they drink larger quantities, often having five or more drinks during a single occasion. According to NSDUH, over 5 million adolescents binge drink, while 1.3 million are heavy consumers of alcohol.

Casual conversations with your kids about drinking when they’re young can help prevent underage drinking. Photo Courtesy: VGstockstudio/Shutterstock.com

This trend in underage drinking comes with significant risks. Ado_les_cents who use alcohol are more prone to have legal issues and participate in unsafe sexual behaviors. They are more likely to have memory problems and changes in brain development that cause lifelong effects. They are also at increased risk for using other drugs, hurting themselves or someone else, and being dependent on heavy drinking later in life. There’s a fatal risk, too: Underage drinking is responsible for approximately 5,000 teen deaths per year— mostly from vehicle crashes, but also from alcohol poisoning and other accidents. You can help your children prevent these problems by talking to them early, and on a consistent basis, about the dangers of underage drinking. Continuing the conversation throughout adolescence, when the pressure to try alcohol increases, is also important. SAMHSA’s “Talk. They Hear You” campaign provides support and tips for parents preparing to have these small but important talks. Helpful resources and advice can be found on the campaign’s website, <w w w.samhsa.gov/underagedrinking>, including the downloadable “Talk. They Hear You” app—a tool that illustrates the dos and don’ts of talking to kids about alcohol use. “Underage drinking is a preventable problem, and parents play a critical role in helping to save kids’ lives,” said Harding. “We want to

help parents talk to their children about this issue.” Additional information on underage drinking, as well as substance abuse, mental health, and wellness, can be found at <www. samhsa.gov>. 5 CONVERSATION GOALS FOR TALKING TO KIDS ABOUT ALCOHOL: 1.

Show you disapprove of underage drinking.

2. Show you care about your child’s happiness and wellbeing. 3.

Show you’re a good source of information about alcohol.

4. -Show you’re paying attention and you’ll notice if your child drinks. 5.

-Build your child’s skills and strategies to avoid underage drinking.

Keep it low key. You don’t have to get everything across in one talk. Many small talks are better. For more tips and resources, visit <www.samhsa.gov/underagedrinking>.

Whether you’re a competitive sprinter chasing a new record or an everyday gym hound looking to get the most from your workout, seafood is among the best foods to support an athletic lifestyle. It not only delivers great-tasting nutrition, but also provides one-of-akind health benefits. The combination of lean protein, anti-inflammatory omega-3s and muscle-building nutrients found in Alaska seafood are why it’s a staple for athletes like Ryan and Sara Hall. “We like to incorporate Alaska seafood in our daily diet because it’s a really high-quality protein that helps to repair our muscles on a daily basis,” said Ryan Hall, a two-time Olympian and holder of the U.S. half-marathon record. After a run, Sara Hall – a 3,000-meter steeplechase and marathon runner, U.S. national champion and World Team member – relies on seafood as a go-to for low-fat meals with protein and simple-to-digest carbs.

SACRAMENTO, Calif, - Medical marijuana has been legal in California since 1996, but on Friday August 12th , the Drug Enforcement Administration published its decision in the Federal Register to keep classifying it as an illegal drug under federal law. The move means cannabis will remain a Schedule One drug, the highest designation, the same as heroin. Dale Gieringer director of California NORML (National Organization for Reforming Marijuana Laws), thinks the DEA, as a law enforcement agency, shouldn't be responsible for decisions on how to classify drugs. "The DEA wants to continue its unjustified war on marijuana," he said. "They have a vested interest in doing so, and like any bureaucracy, they are trying to protect their own power." The feds say there aren't enough well-executed studies to prove marijuana use is safe, and the

MEASURE A FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING LAUNCHES

Support from more than 100 endorsers, spanning elected officials, organizations, unions, businesses, and faith leaders

DEA did move to facilitate more research, by allowing more schools to grow the plants for study, which is good news for the Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research at the University of California San Diego. Gieringer thinks marijuana should be taken off the controlled-substances list altogether, just like alcohol and tobacco. He said the feds were only considering a half-measure and then, rejected even that. "The measure that the DEA was considering supposedly would just be scheduling to Schedule Two, putting marijuana on a level with opium and cocaine, and methamphetamine, which are also on Schedule Two, and they couldn't even do that much," he lamented. Forty-two states and Washington, D.C., have legalized medical marijuana use. Californians will vote in November on whether to legalize it for recreational use.

Santa Clara County On Monday August 15th, the Affordable Housing campaign announced the official launch of the YES on A for Affordable Housing Campaign. After the official ballot measure designation by the Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters (Measure A), the campaign went live with a full campaign website and more than 100 endorsers. More than 60 elected officials have endorsed the measure, spanning City leaders representing more than 1.85 million constituents around the County, including San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo, Campbell Mayor Jason Baker, Mountain View Mayor Pat Showalter, Los Altos Mayor Jeannie Bruins, and Morgan Hill Mayor Steve Tate; members of the Water, School Board, and other special Districts; and State and Federal leaders, including Assemblymember Rich Gordon, Assemblymember Evan Low, Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren, and Congressman Mike Honda. A broad and diverse coalition of organizations have also endorsed the measure, including the League of Women Voters, who announced their support of the measure earlier this month, Veterans Voices of Santa Clara County, the Health Trust, The Sobrato Organization, Habitat for Humanity Silicon Valley, Santa Clara County Senior Care Commission, Silicon Valley Foundation, faith leaders from around the County, and many more. (For a full list of endorsers click here.) “We’re pleased to recognize the great strength in support for and around this important measure to bring more affordable housing to Santa Clara County,” said Betty Duong, A for Affordable Housing Campaign Manager.

“We’re even more excited about kicking off efforts to get out and talk to voters about the affordable housing solutions this measure will bring for our community’s housing needs.” Multiple polls have shown affordable housing to be a top priority for voters this year. In Santa Clara County, polling conducted by EMC Research in April 2016 found that voters identified housing and homelessness as the most important problems facing Santa Clara County. Nationwide, polling from Ipsos Public Affairs in July 2016 demonstrated that voters are ready for action on affordable housing – with more than 3 out of every 4 voters more likely to support a candidate who made affordable housing a priority in government. About Measure A Measure A is the affordable housing bond measure appearing on Santa Clara County voters’ November ballot to provide affordable housing opportunities across Santa Clara County for hardworking families and our most vulnerable communities. The measure was referred by Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors in June to allow the community to address what voters have identified as their highest priority issue. Measure A will create and maintain affordable homes for thousands of our most vulnerable community members, including our veterans, seniors, homeless children, and low-income and working families. For more about the measure, please visit: www.YesonAffordableHousing.org will vote in November on whether to legalize it for recreational use.

FUN FEST WILL BRING GREAT END TO THE SUMMER

Multi award winning Lori Moitié and RJ Johnson have years of experience in children's entertainment. Photo Courtesy: loriandrj.com

Arturo Hilario El Observador On August 27-28 a collection of great acts including musicians, comedians, ventriloquists, and more will convene at the Berryessa Flea Market for its Annual Children's Summer Fun Fest. Now in its 20th year, the event has always been about creating a fun and imaginative experience for families. Bay Area children entertainers Lori Moitié & R.J. Johnson Of Cotton Candy Express Music are hosting this year’s Fun Fest. As multiaward winning musicians, performers and personalities, the duo have been associated with the Flea Market Fun Fest for years, with this year being their first stint as hosts. Lori says that this year’s iteration should not be missed. “I’m a discoverer of talent,” she says. Through her experiences in entertainment industry she and R.J. have amassed friends and discoveries that can be called upon to come to events like the Fun Fest and show people a good time. “20 years ago we saw needs in the Bay Area for creating kids clubs and family friendly places for people to go to.” This led the pair to create the first ever kid-friendly clubs at malls, outdoor festivals and anywhere they could get a stage and a crowd. Lori adds, “this is why the fit for the Children’s Fun Fest couldn’t be better.” The history of the Children's Summer Fun Fest begins and continues because of Marketing Director and Director of Special Events Rich Alvari. He initially thought of the idea to combine elements of the Flea Market like live entertainment with rides and games when he first began his job there 20 years ago. “Being that this is the 20th anniversary, I

give Rich the credit here, what he’s doing here is he’s been filling neighborhood needs. He’s constantly checking what’s going on with the people.” It's this shared bond that Cotton Candy Express and the Flea Market have in looking out and providing communities with fun that makes the union of their respective knowledge a worthwhile effort. Centralizing it at one of the largest outdoor markets in the world helps as well. “When I go to the Flea Market it’s fun, it’s more fun than ever before. It doesn’t matter what culture you are. It opened up for families, and it’s because of Rich,” says Lori. This year's festival includes performances from Lori & R.J., Los Panaderos, ( whose 'Iguana Dance' is said to be something to behold), and Grupo Folklorico Los Laurels. Lori adds, “we’ve got a magician that we love that transcends any language barriers. If someone is entertaining they’re gonna go ‘wow’ in any language. Along with us, what we call the entertaining hosts, we’re doing a very fun, kid-friendly shtick.” Besides the performances, rides, activities, science experiments and petting zoos will be available for families. To Lori the entire point to the event is to have fun and create what she calls “a very special day” for the families and their children. “Our goal is to attract families, the more we attract families, the better it is. The most important thing is the connection to family, the connection to neighborhoods and we all have to work side by side to fulfill the neighborhood.” “There’s such a need for children. And here’s a special day for them. Come and hang out with us, we do lots of the things, we give out lots of prizes!” she adds.

What Will Happen if Earth Isn't Sustainable

AUGUST 19-25, 2016

YOU ARE INVITED TO ATTEND OUR...

Colonizing Mars might be our best hope if humans ruin or outgrow Earth. Credit: Kevin Gill, FlickrCC.

How far along are we on ef for ts to suppor t large numbers of people on the moon or other planets if our population gets too big or we ruin the environment here on Ear th? Roddy Scheer & Doug Moss EarthTalk As the human population swells and global warming compounds other environmental problems here on Earth, the notion of colonizing other planets is more appealing than ever. While we are far from being able to support human communities elsewhere in the solar system and beyond, environmentalists are increasingly interested in space exploration as one potential solution to our own earthly woes. Mars is by far the most promising planet in the solar system on which we could support substantial human life. Currently, Mars is a desolate desert, but the so-called “red planet” once contained liquid water and perhaps harbored life. Many of the elements we depend upon to support life here on Earth, including carbon, silicon, iron and even frozen water, are present on Mars, giving researchers hope that one day some of us could hopscotch through space and set up shop there. The first challenge of colonizing Mars is transportation. The furthest a manned mission has ever gone to date is the moon, and Mars is 140 times further away. Currently the biggest hurdle is the cost of spaceflight. But a new breed of private companies such as SpaceX and Blue Origin have invested in making launching more efficient by streamlining manufacturing and even reusing rockets. Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX, claims he can reduce the cost of spaceflight 100-fold.   The best concrete plan for landing humans on Mars is called Mars Direct. Designed by aerospace engineer and Mars Society founder Bob Zubrin, this plan was rejected by NASA because it failed to fully utilize new technologies such as the International Space Station. Zubrin thinks we could get ourselves to Mars for only $55 billion, which seems like a bargain compared to the $250 billion figure

suggested for a Mars landing back in 1969 after our first moon landing. The most immediate problem for human habitation on Mars is the severe temperature. The average temperature on the surface of the red planet is -67° Fahrenheit compared to the balmy 61° here on Earth. Elon Musk suggests there are two ways to overcome this obstacle. The fast way would be by dropping nuclear weapons on Mars’ poles, while a slower solution would entail emitting huge amounts of carbon into the Martian atmosphere much as we are doing on Earth but to a larger extent. In theory, this carbon seeding plan would cause the atmosphere to grow and eventually shield much of the radiation that would otherwise be harmful to Martians. Since carbon dioxide is the main gaseous nutrient consumed by plants, it’s possible that many plants could thrive on Mars. Without competition, plants could take over the planet and put oxygen into the atmosphere, eventually making it possible for humans and other animals to populate Mars without oxygen masks. There are still problems with colonizing Mars, however. Its low gravity would corrode human bones and giant storms rage across the currently barren planet. In sharp contrast, Earth is rich in resources and water, making it naturally habitable for plants and animals. Addressing the problems here on Earth will likely be easier than escaping them by fleeing to Mars or other planets.

COUNTY PAVES WAY TO HIGHER EDUCATION AT ELMWOOD CORRECTIONAL Partnership with San Jose State University Research Foundation offers credit-bearing general education courses to incarcerated men and women, beginning in September SANTA CLARA COUNTY, CALIF.— The County of Santa Clara is paving the way to higher education for men and women at Elmwood Correctional Facility and Main Jail in a new partnership with San Jose State University Research Foundation that offers credit-bearing, general education college courses to incarcerated individuals. Today, the Board of Supervisors approved a two-year, $325,000 contract that offers classes that will count toward community college and university coursework when incarcerated individuals transition back into the community. Fall classes begin in mid-September.   “The County is committed to providing individuals the re-entry tools needed to make a successful transition back into the community,” said Supervisor Cindy Chavez. “This is one of the reasons that our Reentry program has cut recidivism in half.”   The new college curriculum builds upon workshops and presentations that SJSU instructors have been providing to men and women in the Santa Clara County Correction System, including justice studies expungement law and career exploration. Instructors will teach six college coursework areas, two classes per 12-week period for up to 60 individuals per class, and include both instruction and tutoring. All courses are worth three units and most contribute to G.E. level classes needed before enrolling in upper-division coursework, and will count toward community colleges and universities. Classes will be offered in the areas of Justice Studies, Kinesiology, Philosophy, Child and Adolescent Development, Communication, Counselor Education, and English.    “We are committed to investing in educational opportunities that can help inmates avoid returning to jail,” said Board President Dave Cortese. “Our partnership with San Jose State University Research Foundation is one more building block to reducing recidivism rates in Santa Clara County.”   A 2014 study published by the RAND Corporation indicated that inmates who participated in correctional education programs had “43% lower odds of recidivating than inmates who did not.”  According to Harvard University’s Prison Studies Project, higher education

in prison programs reduces recidivism and translates into reductions in crime, savings to taxpayers, and long-term contributions to the safety and well-being of communities. “Higher education is the key to success for many, and for inmates it’s a crucial strategy for improving their opportunities to succeed once they are released,” said Supervisor Mike Wasserman, Chair of the County of Santa Clara Public Safety and Justice Committee. “It is imperative we explore innovative approaches that will benefit incarcerated men and women, their families, and the community.” Said County Executive Jeffrey V. Smith, M.D., J.D., “In-custody college classes will enhance many aspects of their lives, and better prepare them to pursue vocational, career and educational opportunities after release. Funding a higher education program as part of Santa Clara County’s in-custody services is a solid investment in the health and safety of our communities.”      Fall classes will be offered two mornings per week, followed by the opportunity for tutoring and homework assistance in the afternoons from an SJSU graduate student specializing in that field of study. The first class to be offered to incarcerated women is JS 140E, a Record Clearance Project/ Practical Legal Skills class from the Justice Studies Department. Students will learn a range of legal skills, including legal analysis, how to read a rap sheet, legal research, writing legal petitions and working with an interpreter. While this class focuses on clearing criminal records, the skills can be applied other career opportunities.   “Our Jail Reform Plan is committed to improving the education programs offered to inmates. They will be able to use their time productively attending class, exploring future career options, and focusing on positive changes in their lives,” said Interim Correction Chief Carl Neusel.     The first class being offered to men is Introduction to Kinesiology. Students will learn about skills and career opportunities for personal training, coaching, physical therapy and sports management.  A career exploration class, planned for Summer 2017, will help participants identify their skills, provide education guidance and identify career opportunities.   "San Jose State University is pleased to

collaborate with the County of Santa Clara to provide the men and women of Elmwood Correctional Facility and the Main Jail with the opportunity to take college courses for credit," said SJSU Research Foundation Executive Director Sandeep Muju. "SJSU instructors are invested in making sure these men and women are engaged in learning while in custody, and in connecting them with local colleges so that they can continue to take classes once they are back in the community." In addition to instruction and tutoring, the program with SJSU will provide students with a critical connection to local community colleges when they are released from custody. Instructors will help students connect with the community colleges of their choice, helping to transition students as they continue their college education.

HOW TO MAKE SOME NOISE Q&A With Noise Pop General Manager Dawson Ludwig

there are a lot of creative businesses and residents here. It’s changed a lot over the years, as has the entire city, but there is still a strong art community that exists here, and we wanted to highlight that in the best way we know how—to throw a large event for them all. What's the growth of the festival been over the years? We are now in our 4th year. The first year attracted about 5,000 people, and each year we’ve been adding about 5,000. This year, we’ve expanded to 19th Street to accommodate what we expect to be 15,000 people. Tell us what fans and residents can expect at this year’s events. This year, with our partnership with MLVS (Mission Language and Vocational School), fans and residents can expect additional programming along 19th Street with more food vendors and music stages. We are also excited to have Miami Horror and Chicano Batman perform on the

main stage. Both of these bands perform in large venues when they come through the Bay Area, and we’re excited to give them a stage in front of all our neighbors. How did the collaboration with Mission Language and Vocational School come to be? Why did this organization get chosen to be the partner? We’ve been aware of MLVS for years and their important efforts. Earlier this year they approached us about combining our efforts at 20th Street with their annual benefit/gala. It was a very creative idea on their part, and we instantly said “yes.” Do you feel it’s important for entertainment events and the arts to be involved in communities that support them? If so, why? It’s extremely important for art and events to be involved in their communities—it’s the only way to establish a ‘scene’ and help expand individual efforts to a larger reach.

few months. I have a co-dependent relationship with my dog.

As the General Manager with Noise Pop, the organization responsible for many local entertainment events in the Bay Area, Dawson Ludwig knows music pretty well. From the yearly Noise Pop Festival, to the Treasure Island Music Festival, Noise Pop has helped bring forth plenty of amazing artists with their keen sense for finding independent acts and shining a spotlight on them.

What’s a day in the life of a General Manager for Noise Pop like? Most interesting aspects?

With their most recent event, the free admission 20th Street Block Party, Ludwig reflects on his job and how Noise Pop has grown alongside its community in its home base in San Francisco's Mission District, as well as the greater Bay Area.

Any memory you’re fond of? Anything that’s taken your breath away?

Tell me about yourself. How did you get started in the music industry? I started a band in college and really enjoyed the business/promotional side of it, which is fortunate because I wasn’t a very good musician. After the band broke up, I decided I wanted to continue working in music—I’ve worked at record labels, songwriter rights organizations and in live events. What’s your background (education, interests, etc.)? I was a religious studies major in college, so pretty much the furthest thing from a useful degree for the music industry. I’m an avid podcast listener. I’m married. We are expecting our first kid in a

Most of my days are pretty normal. I go to the office and sit at a computer all day. The exciting part of my job revolves around the large events we do (Noise Pop Festival, Treasure Island Music Festival, 20th Street Block Party).

I’m very fortunate to have seen dozens of superb live music sets. The National at Treasure Island, Majical Cloudz at Noise Pop… it’s a long list. Noise Pop and yourself has helped the local and independent scenes of music stay current and thriving. How has this been accomplished? We are a very persistent and passionate group. We believe the Bay Area has one of the most storied musical histories in the world, and we’re committed to helping to keep the quality of the music up. What’s the story behind the 20th Street Block Party? Could you give us a brief overview/history of its origin & purpose? Noise Pop has had its offices on 20th St. for 10 years now. It’s a pretty special neighborhood—

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com of Brussels was very influential. I returned motivated to put my own creative twist on the brewing process that resulted in our first brew, Blue Moon Belgian White.

PHOTO COURTESY: BLUE MOON BREWING COMPANY

Why did you decide to create a Belgian-style? Where there any popular types of Belgian-style brews in the US at the time? My time at University of Brussels was very inspiring. When I began brewing Blue Moon at the corner of 22nd & Blake in downtown Denver, Colorado, at the beginning of the '95 baseball season, there weren’t many unique Belgian-style brews on the market. Beer drinkers were mainly used to enjoying lagers and weren’t accustomed to the cloudiness of Belgianstyle beers. I was excited to create and share my own version of Belgian-style beer with American drinkers. While it took a while, the US has come around and appreciates both Belgian-style and other creative brews now. How many versions/iterations did you go through before you found the perfect mix for Blue Moon?

THE MAN BEHIND THE ORANGE PEEL: KEITH VILLA

Q&A with Blue Moon's Head Brewmaster Arturo Hilario El Observador Keith Villa never intended to be in the beer business, or for that matter become a brewmaster. He was always interested in his studies of science and went on to pursue it in college. Yet when Villa, a Mexican-American, had an opportunity to obtain his Ph.D at the University of Brussels in Belgium (a rare honor amongst brewmasters) he took it and flourished. Today, his beer is known around the world by it's Belgian-style and slice of Valencia orange, and come in a variety of colors and styles. In the following interview with Villa, he describes how he wound up with creating his beer and the history behind it. What was your schooling like that made you interested in sciences? Any particular moment when you felt it would be involved in your future/career?

I have always had an interest in science and a love for beer. I was on the path to becoming a pediatrician when I decided to change course and move to Belgium to work towards a Ph.D in brewing. I wanted to be a beer doctor instead of a people doctor. Once I started studying at the University of Brussels I became incredibly passionate about brewing Belgian-style beer and I knew that I wanted to make a long-term career out of this passion. Tell me in your words your path to University of Brussels. What did you get your Ph.D. In specifically? How was your experience there? My interest in science, love for beer, and passion for creativity lead me to pursue my Ph.D. in Brewing from the University of Brussels in Belgium. Belgium is one of the only universities in the world that offers a Ph.D. in Brewing, and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to learn from some of the best brewers from around the globe. My experience in Belgium and at the University

It took me about a year to develop Blue Moon Belgian White. I greatly enjoy the creative process, and took my time putting my own unique twist on the traditional Belgian-style Wit. I tested a number of different combinations of the best ingredients I could find before landing on the final recipe for Blue Moon Belgian White. What's the story behind the orange, every time I've ever seen a beer with an orange slice it's been a Blue Moon. When we first started distributing Blue Moon Belgian White across the country, we noticed something: lemons. All curiously hanging off the sides of Blue Moon Belgian White, which is common practice for traditional Belgian Wits that are tart. But Blue Moon Belgian White is not tart; it’s slightly sweet. So after a little thinking, I suggested garnishing our Belgian White with an orange slice to heighten the citrus aroma and taste from the Valencia orange peel used to brew the beer. In the early days of Blue Moon, I used to go bar to bar with bags of oranges to entice bar owners to garnish Blue Moon with an orange slice. Needless to say, it caught on and Belgian White was the first American beer that called for an orange. Nowadays, orange garnishes are staples at bars across the country.

Tell me about your experience with the Horchata Ale. Why did you become interested in the agua fresca as a beer? I rediscovered Horchata on a recent trip to Mexico and became enchanted by its creamy, refreshing taste and its connection to my heritage, as I’m a third-generation Mexican-American. Following my trip, I set out to create a brew inspired by my experience and came up with today’s Blue Moon Cinnamon Horchata Ale. The beer is a twist on the traditional Horchata, brewed with natural long-grain rice for a creamy texture that complements the flavors of cinnamon. What was the feedback from that? From people that grew up with it or have had it before? How about those that come from no experience with Horchata? People have been loving it! From those who grew up drinking Horchata to those who are experiencing it for the first time, the reception has been very positive. It’s a great year-round beer. People enjoy the cinnamon taste in the winter, as it is reminiscent of the holidays, but they also like to drink Cinnamon Horchata in the summertime because it’s so refreshing. Any other plans to incorporate other world flavors to create different Blue Moon types? Creativity and the creativity process are at the very heart of Blue Moon. The creative process doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It happens when you’re open to the inspiration around you, and I am constantly looking around during my travels and experiences for new opportunities to create exciting new recipes for the future. Do you have a personal favorite type of Blue Moon? It typically depends what I’m in the mood for and what food I am pairing the beer with. While I love all the beers I’ve created, I do have a special place in my heart for Blue Moon Belgian White, since it was the first beer I created.
