10 Reasons Why You Might Be Financially Stressed Stress can come from everywhere – career, school, family, relationships, health – and especially money. The American Psychological Association (APA) recently reported that money remains the number one stressor for 72 percent of Americans. (More on our site) Latinos Polled: Environment, Immigration Equally Important Latinos are vitally interested in environmental issues, which they see as just as important as immigration when it comes to how they vote. That’s one takeaway from a poll released Tuesday by the law firm EarthJustice and the national nonprofit GreenLatinos. (More on el-observador.com)

The following is the final part of our journey through the existing “Law enforcement and Justice System”. While in jail or prison, the current practice is punitive punishment. Incarceration involves confinement most of the time in your cell (8 ft x 10 ft in size). Under surveillance, access to everything: library, cafeteria. visiting privileges, GED classes, job training, etc., are all controlled. Employment is very limited (vehicle license plates; highway signage); and some inmates may be trained as ‘wild-fire firefighters’ with supervision by the Forestry Service when needed.

re-integrating into their family and community. Friends Outside is an organization which now helps families of inmates. An added responsibility could be to do effective ‘discharge from prison planning for each inmate to be released. An alternative is to have parole or probation personnel do this ‘discharge planning’ which needs to include family, community, and local economy (jobs). Another approach may be to plan for early probation release under the supervision of a parole or probation officer using IT technology and ankle bracelets. Such an approach cost about $14,000 per year in contrast to $45,000 per year per inmate in prison. The likelihood of rehabilitation is higher when the parolee is in relationships with spouse, children, family, friends, and community plus having a job.

Based upon a full psychiatric/psychological assessment, each inmate may benefit from the rehabilitation possible using the latest behavioral modification processes. which provide the logic and information needed to discard past destructive decision habits. Let’s use the new knowledge about brain function, psycho-tropic medications, education and training to rehabilitate those inmates who are capable of becoming future ‘good citizens’ after serving their sentence. Doing this requires the repeal of the punitive ‘Three Strikes and you are in for life” laws.

The impact of not having a job is profound. Yet our commerce leaders and government officials do not discuss the challenges of creating an economy which provides sufficient jobs which pay a ‘living wage which, in turn, enable consumerism. It is not right for commerce to be interested in maximizing profits earned and retained. In addition, too many jobs are being eliminated by the sophisticated use of robotics and automation. So individuals with no means to earn a living end up ‘doing criminal acts: dealing drugs’; becoming a dealer; prostitution; gambling...all in order to ‘earn a living’.

At the end of one’s prison term, the usual practice is to ‘just release the prisoner’. Federal persons provide just $200 mustering out funding. It is recommended that here is were ‘case management’ may be applied to reduce recidivism. The former inmate needs “a welcome back wagon” to assist in finding a job,

What can an individual do? One think is to begin to discuss the responsibility of the top 1% in paying an appropriate level of reasonable taxes. Tax avoidance and subsidies of all kinds must be re-evaluated and perhaps eliminated. Society and its governance must relate ‘ownership’ with responsible stewardship. We

must learn to practice being ‘our brother’s (or sister’s) keeper’. Achievement of equitable ‘law enforcement and justice systems’ is not easy to achieve. In fact, we have not had a level competitive playing field anywhere because of our emphasis on profiteering and winning. A new dynamic equilibrium emphasizing moderation must be created and implemented. A moderate integrated “Law Enforcement & Justice System” would not require more jails nor prisons to be constructed. Its current emphasis on surveillance, suppression, safety and security must be extended to included humane behavior modification and mental health’s best practices. The rehabilitated individual will become a contributing member of society and its economy. That needs to become the overall goal of the revised ‘Law enforcement and Justice System”. It is possible today for ordinary citizens to require all sworn peace officers to be more accountable and responsible for minimizing ‘police involved shootings.: Recently the videos taken by bystanders have provided a new evidence based perspective. Society cannot continue to always accept the police officer’s statement that ‘he/ she feared for his life or was defending society. Racism, bigotry, bias and the double standard exist. And now that these factors have come to the light of day, a new level of responsible transparency and accountability is possible. It will happen when enough of the citizenry demand that all of us live up to the ideals of ‘Justice for all’ in America. This will require dealing with the entire Law Enforcement and Justice System.

Silverio Coy, Abogado Migratorio LA RED HISPANA Todos sabemos que convertirse en ciudadano de un país de donde no somos provenientes, no es tarea fácil. Sin embargo, existen varias formas para volverse ciudadano americano y los beneficios son muchos. Es importante saber el proceso y los requerimientos para conseguir la ciudadanía. La ciudadanía Americana se adquiere por nacimiento, derivación o naturalización. Una persona es americana al nacer en territorio de los EUA, pero también lo es, si nace en territorio extranjero y sus padres americanos lo registran en la embajada de EUA de tal país. La derivación, aunque similar, es un proceso distinto. Cuando una madre o padre americano, reconoce a su hijo, que nació en el extranjero, y puede demostrar la maternidad o paternidad, es entonces un ciudadano americano por derivación. ¿Qué sucede si los padres obtienen la ciudadanía por naturalización? El hijo menor de 18 años debe entrar a territorio de EUA por medio de una visa, y después obtiene la ciudadanía bajo el proceso por derivación. El modo de convertirse en ciudadano americano tal vez más largo y con más requisitos es el de naturalización. Muchas veces, nosotros los inmigrantes en EUA, nos alejamos del proceso porque no lo entendemos o porque no sabemos exactamente cómo seguir los pasos adecuados. Primero, tenemos que saber que el proceso de naturalización comienza cuando la persona extranjera, obtiene la residencia permanente en los EUA por medio de petición familiar, de trabajo, de inversionista o de asilo político. Es aquí donde comienza el tedioso, pero necesario proceso. Se debe llenar el formulario

N-400 que puede encontrar en www.uscis.gov además de los requisitos que se indican allí. Antes de comenzar el proceso, tenga en cuenta los siguientes puntos: Los extranjeros que deseamos obtener la ciudadanía americana, debemos tener cinco (5) años de residencia permanente en los EUA. La excepción es estar casado y conviviendo con un ciudadano(a) Americano(a), a través del cual obtuvo la residencia permanente. En este caso, solo son tres años de residencia permanente. Además, tenemos que haber vivido por lo menos tres (3) meses en el estado donde se busca pedir la ciudadanía Americana y debemos poder demostrar presencia física en EUA, por más de la mitad del total de cinco(5) años y haber mantenido un buen carácter moral por este tiempo. Como muchos saben bien, se debe pasar un examen sobre la historia y gobierno de los EUA junto con un examen básico en inglés escrito y oral. Hay, como en muchos casos, algunas excepciones. Por ejemplo, si el solicitante puede demostrar mediante prueba médica que es incapaz de aprender pero reúne los otros requisitos. Para esta excepción, es necesario un formulario firmado por un médico competente que haya examinado al paciente y que

3

pueda determinar su incompetencia para el aprendizaje. El solicitante, también, deberá demostrar que ha pagado sus impuestos federales y estatales y no tiene deudas con el gobierno de los EUA o el estado donde vive. Los solicitantes con hijos deberán demostrar que siempre les han dado soporte económico y no deben ningún cargo de manutención. Aunque parezca mucha responsabilidad, obtener la ciudadanía, es el camino a mejorar nuestro estilo de vida en EUA. Por eso, siempre consulte a un abogado, tanto si tiene dudas, como si tiene algún récord criminal que tal vez pudiera descalificarlo para la ciudadanía americana. Los inmigrantes de EUA tenemos deberes y derechos como residentes permanentes, pero obtener la ciudadanía nos protege bajo la Constitución, al no ser deportados de los EUA.

EDUCATION

NAPSM Los estudiantes comenzarán a volver a las clases pronto, eso quiere decir mayores gastos en suministros escolares, vestimenta y otros gastos relacionados a computadoras. La Federación Nacional de Minoristas (NRF, por sus siglas en inglés) reporta que en el 2014 una familia promedio gastó $670 en útiles escolares para estudiantes entre Jardín de Infantes (Kindergarten) y el 12° grado. Se pronostica que estos gastos aumentarán en el 2015. La NRF remarca que “este es el segundo más alto período de gastos anuales”, aparte de los gastos de fiestas de fin de año. “La escuela comienza pronto y este es un buen momento para revisar la situación financiera de la familia”, dice Stuart K. Pratt, presidente y CEO de la Consumer Data Industry Association (Asociación de la Industria de Datos sobre los Consumidores). “Un buen punto de partida es obtener una copia gratuita de tu informe de crédito visitando

www.annualcredit report. com. Esto te dará una excelente y completa perspectiva de tus obligaciones de deudas y como resultado tendrás una visión más completa de tus deudas antes de realizar compras escolares”. Pratt dijo además que revisar tu informe de crédito puede prevenir problemas financieros en el futuro, tales como información incorrecta o incompleta que las compañías suministran a los burós de crédito. Por ejemplo, si ves cuentas o información que no reconoces en tu informe crediticio, notifica al buró inmediatamente. Los tres burós de crédito nacionales se pueden acceder online, por teléfono o por correo electrónico. No importa el método que utilices, el buró de crédito contactará al prestamista que suministró la información equivocada y le pedirá que la corrija y luego te notificará sobre los resultados. Pratt dijo que más del 70 por ciento de todas las disputas de los consumidores se resuelven dentro de 14 días. También vale la pena incluir

cualquier documentación que tengas, ya que podría ayudar que el buró de crédito y el prestamista resuelvan la disputa. El buró de crédito enviará todo los materiales al prestamista cuando le notifica sobre el problema del consumidor. “Siempre es una buena idea monitorear tus finanzas personales, especialmente en ciertas épocas del año, para que así no gastes excesivamente. Y el regreso a la escuela es una de esas épocas” concluyó Pratt. Obtén tu informe de crédito antes de que tus hijos vuelvan a la escuela. Nota a la Redacción: Los burós de crédito están implementando en el estado de Nueva York un Plan Nacional de Asistencia al Consumidor. Se implementará por todo el país. La información es pertinente y podrá beneficiar a la gente de toda la nación, pero podría ser de interés particular para publicaciones de noticias en el estado de Nueva York.

HEALTH

NAPS A few cups of coffee a day may do much more than fuel that early-morning energy oomph. The latest wave of scientific evidence suggests drinking coffee offers numerous health benefits that contribute powerfully to a balanced diet, an active lifestyle and overall well-being. Until recently, the health impact of the world’s most popular beverage has been hotly debated. However, better and more well-designed research is now telling a much clearer story, one that has coffee enthusiasts celebrating.

Departamento del Control de Substancias Toxicas - Hoja de Datos

Aviso Publico

agosto de 2015

La mision del DTSC es de proteger a los residentes de California y al medio ambiente de los efectos nocivos de substancias toxicas atravez de la restauracion de recursos contaminados, la aplicacion de regulaciones, y la prevencion de la contaminacion.

PRIMERA REVISIÓN QUINQUENAL EVERGREEN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SAN JOSÉ, CALIFORNIA El Departamento de Control de Sustancias Tóxicas (DTSC, por sus siglas en inglés) llevará a cabo la primera Revisión Quinquenal de efectividad de la solución para el sitio Evergreen Elementary School (Sitio) ubicado en el 3010 Fowler Road, en San José, California 95135. El propósito de la Revisión Quinquenal es asegurar que la solución elegida siga siendo efectiva y esté funcionando para lo que fue diseñada y tiene un mantenimiento apropiado para proteger la salud humana y el medio ambiente. La solución fue de cubrir las zonas del Sitio donde concentraciones inaceptables de asbesto de origen natural permanecen en el suelo. Las siguientes áreas fueron cubiertas para crear barreras y asi tanto, prevenir o reducir considerablemente las exposiciones para los estudiantes y el personal: Área del Pasillo de Servicio Sur, Área del Pasillo de Servicio Oriental; Área de Estacionamiento Pavimentado; Áreas Ajardinadas; Área de Aulas; Área del Edificio de Usos Múltiples y Área de Llegada/Camino de Autobús. La cubierta consiste en una barrera de alerta (generalmente cerca para nieve color anaranjado) seguida de relleno importado, seguido de cualquier base de agregado grava, asfalto o concreto; o suelo vegetal y materiales de jardinería. El Distrito de Evergreen Elementary School (Distrito) concluyó todas las actividades de remoción en el verano de 2009. Incluido en la solución hay actividades de operación y mantenimiento (O&M) para monitorear y proteger las cubiertas en el Sitio. En agosto de 2015, el DTSC y el Distrito llevarán a cabo una inspección en el Sitio. La inspección identificará lo siguiente: cualquier cambio en la condición o uso del Sitio; cambios en la construcción que afecten las cubiertas; identificación y evaluación de cualquier reparación requerida; y, otra información relevante relativa a las cubiertas. La inspección incluirá medición y evaluación de las cubiertas. El DTSC emitirá un Reporte de Revisión Quinquenal documentando los resultados de la inspección y las resoluciones, para revisión y aprobación dentro de los 60 días posteriores a la inspección. De ser necesario, el Plan O&M será actualizado para reflejar los cambios desde la implementación del Plan de Trabajo de Acción de Remoción (RAW, por sus siglas en inglés).

Helping shape this sharper picture have been eyeopening reports by the U.S. Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee released just this past year. Scientists conducted a comprehensive analysis of all the latest evidence surrounding coffee as it relates to health. Included was a review of more than three dozen studies involving 1.2 million–plus participants. Following the assessment, the nation’s top nutrition panel made history by giving the thumbs-up for people to enjoy coffee in a “moderate range,” defined as three to five cups per day for adults. It turns out that when scientists honed in on coffee—just coffee, without trans fat–ridden creamers, syrups and sugars— the results were clear. A cup of joe can have a very healthful effect, such as enhancing exercise performance. But there are also strong indicators tying coffee to other benefits, such as an association with better cardiovascular, metabolic and brain health long term. This is great news for java lovers everywhere, and there are lots of them. Americans alone consume 400 million cups of coffee per day, making the U.S. the leading consumer of coffee in the world, according to the National Coffee Association. Globally, the total is estimated between 1.5 and 2 billion cups daily.

AUGUST 21-27, 2015

“Today’s science now shows us that coffee can be quite healthful, and that’s fantastic since there are so many of us who enjoy it,” said registered dietitian and nutritional counselor Jaimie Lopez, RDN. “But this means drinking sensibly. Black coffee is best. When you start throwing in things like sweeteners, a healthful pick-me-up can quickly turn into a high-calorie concoction.” So not only does coffee deliver natural caffeine to the body for an energy boost, but many negative misperceptions about the beverage’s impacts to overall wellness and fitness are also being debunked. In fact, the data findings by the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee point to just the opposite— that the brew can actually help support and protect mental and physical well-being. The healthy power of coffee is a welcome delight for millions. It not only tastes good, it can also be good for you. So much so that it is emerging as an integral part of healthful living. “The right type of coffee consumed responsibly can definitely be a tasty and healthy part of daily life,” said Suk Cho, Ph.D. and Chief Science Officer with Isagenix, a leading global health and wellness company. A provider of nutritional systems and solutions for energy, performance and weight loss, the company recently expanded its product offerings to include a line of premium and organic, slow-roasted coffee. “This isn’t a green light to drink as much coffee as you want. Coffee consumed in excess or in the evening is linked to poor sleep, insomnia and other risks. But in moderation, it can absolutely provide a safe and satisfying boost for your brain and body,” said Suk. So now millions can enjoy their daily dose of coffee while simultaneously drinking to, and for, their health.

No doubt about it, Americans like their “stuff.” We like to accumulate and surround ourselves with material things. The late George Carlin summed it up when he quipped, “A house is just a place to keep your stuff while you go out and get more stuff.” The problem is that stuff creates a mess, and most people also like to be neat and organized. Unfortunately, the two concepts do not necessarily align, which is why companies like The Container Store boast close to billion-dollar bottom lines.And when you have kids? Fugehdaboutit. The potential for messiness multiplies tenfold.

AUGUST 21-27, 2015 For those wannabe organized families who would like to declutter (or at least keep the detritus at bay), look no further than the tips below: * Buy bins. These plastic tubs can be a godsend for parents whose kids either refuse to throw (or give) anything away, or who want to try and teach their kids to organize their things at an early age. It keeps the mess to a minimum and makes cleaning simple for both parents and children. * Cue the cubbies. These threedrawer organizers can be stored in the closet, don’t take up much room and allow kids to store odds and ends that might otherwise be everywhere but their bedroom.

* Have an in box. A parent of any school-age child knows the amount of paperwork that comes home is obscene and overwhelming. To that end, having one place for all incoming papers is paramount. * Use hangers and hooks. These minimally priced inventions that hang on the backs of doors helps keep towels, scarves, coats and other items off the floor. Similarly, a shoe rack that hangs in the closet can also be a great organization tool for little ones. Hopefully these tips can help keep your home environment as spacious and enjoyable as can be, even with all that stuff in it.

STATEPOINT The clock is ticking on the sunniest season. With the end of summer drawing near, considering switching things up to help you make the most of every day. Be Your Own Bartender That new neighborhood hot spot where everyone knows your name? Your patio. Try experimenting with frosty, whole-fruit drinks recipes like margaritas and adult smoothies, but watch the sugar if the party gets too steamy. “During a season with high temperatures, you want to stick with bright,

refreshing flavors,” says Tom Macy, bartender and co-owner of Clover Club. “Stay away from stronger, spirit-forward cocktails and go for drinks with fresh-squeezed juice and crisp, seasonal fruits and vegetables. Something that will help you cool down without getting you in over your head.” Macy suggests trying out one of his newest creations -- the Jalapeño Cucumber Margarita, which includes; jalapeño tequila, fresh lime juice, simple syrup, ice, freshly cut cucumber slices with the optional addition of cilantro. For the full recipe, visit TomMacy.com. Make Workouts Fun

Think of the days when you wanted to stay outside all day, running around and playing games. Why not combine friendly competition with your workouts? Find a park and invite friends or coworkers for an old-fashioned game of “capture the flag.” It’s a fun way to increase heart rates. Once you’re done, invite your thirsty crew home to check out your bartending skills. Don’t let the end of summer pass you by. With fall almost here, end your summer with new traditions.

Para conservar su derecho a la indemnización si se enferma en el futuro (o actualmente padece una enfermedad relevante al asbesto), debe presentar una reclamación a más tardar el 14 de diciembre de 2015, a las 5:00 p. m., hora del Este.

STATEPOINT Pain in your brain can be a real headache. To avoid getting hit with a doozy, consider these easy tips. Drink water. Dehydration causes headaches, and most Americans are not drinking enough water. Drink your eight 8-ounce cups of water every day to drastically lower your risk of getting a headache. Cut back on the coffee. Coffee is one of the largest headache triggers, but most people like to begin their days by drinking at least one cup. Instead, try some peppermint or ginger tea - both of which you can also drink to cure a headache if it sneaks past your defenses. Relax. Stress is on the rise, according to the American Psychological Association. So it’s no wonder we get headaches so often. Put aside time every day to do something you enjoy. Some low-stress, rewarding options are taking a yoga class, volunteering at a charity or playing with a pet. Headaches aren’t pleasant, but these prevention techniques will make your days better -- not only by improving your health but by increasing your happiness.

Energy Future Holdings Corp., Ebasco Services, Inc., EECI, Inc. y determinadas subsidiarias (“EFH”) poseyeron, operaron, mantuvieron, o construyeron algunas plantas energéticas a lo largo de los Estados Unidos y en otros países en las que había asbesto. Es posible que los trabajadores de estas plantas energéticas (y familiares y otros que entraron en contacto con estos trabajadores) se hayan visto expuestos al asbesto. Cualquiera que tenga una reclamación actualmente contra EFH por una enfermedad relevante al asbesto o que pueda desarrollar una enfermedad relevante al asbesto en el futuro, debe presentar una reclamación a más tardar el 14 de diciembre de 2015, a las 5:00 p. m., hora del Este a fin de ser elegible para una indemnización actualmente o en el futuro.

¿Qué es el asbesto? El asbesto es una fibra que fue utilizada como aislamiento en paredes, cables, tuberías, calderas, generadores, trampas de vapor, bombas, válvulas, tableros eléctricos, empaques, material para empacar, turbinas, compresores, cemento y tuberías de cemento. Los trabajadores responsables de construir y mantener plantas energéticas y equipos también vistieron ropa o aparejos aislados que pudieron haber contenido asbesto. Prácticamente todas las plantas energéticas construidas antes de 1980 usaron o tuvieron productos que contienen asbesto. Las enfermedades relevantes al asbesto pueden ser muy graves o fatales e incluir enfermedades tales como mesotelioma, cáncer de pulmón, cáncer de laringe, cáncer de esófago, cáncer de la faringe, cáncer de estómago y asbestosis. Incluso si su exposición al asbesto fue hace muchos años y no está enfermo actualmente, esta notificación puede afectarle. Una enfermedad relevante al asbesto puede ocurrir décadas e incluso 50 años después de la exposición al asbesto que ocasionó la enfermedad.

¿Cuáles plantas energéticas se incluyen? Usted o un familiar pudo haber sido expuesto en cualquiera de las plantas energéticas relevantes a EFH. Estas plantas energéticas se encuentran a lo largo de los Estados Unidos y en algunos países extranjeros. Para obtener una lista de las plantas energéticas incluidas, visite el sitio web a continuación o llame al 1-877-276-7311.

¿Cómo puede afectarme esto? Es posible que haya sido expuesto al asbesto si usted o un familiar trabajó en cualquiera de las plantas energéticas incluidas en calidad de empleado, contratista o en cualquier otra función. También es posible que haya sido expuesto al entrar en contacto con otra persona que trabajó en una planta energética (por ejemplo, si el asbesto fue llevado a casa en la ropa de su cónyuge o progenitor). También puede presentar una reclamación en nombre de un familiar difunto.

¿Qué debo hacer ahora? Si considera que usted o un familiar ha sido expuesto al asbesto en una planta incluida, presente una reclamación a más tardar el 14 de diciembre de 2015, a las 5:00 p. m., hora del Este. Visite www.EFHAsbestosClaims.com para presentar su reclamación en línea. Para obtener un formulario de reclamación impreso, visite el sitio web o llame al 1-877-276-7311. El hecho de presentar una reclamación preserva su derecho de solicitar dinero en caso de desarrollar una enfermedad relevante al asbesto en el futuro. Puede presentar una reclamación por su cuenta o puede pedirle a su abogado ayudarle. Si no está enfermo en la actualidad, llenar una reclamación toma aproximadamente cinco minutos.

¿Qué sucede si no llevo a cabo ninguna acción? Si no presenta una reclamación y posteriormente desarrolla una enfermedad relevante al asbesto, no será elegible para una indemnización de EFH. Incluso si no ha sido diagnosticado con una enfermedad ni experimentado síntomas, debe presentar una reclamación para preservar su derecho a la indemnización en caso de desarrollar una enfermedad relevante al asbesto en el futuro.

The County of Santa Clara, California, the largest community in Silicon Valley is launching California’s first Pay for Success (PFS) project in partnership with Abode Services, a national leader in innovative housing services for homeless persons. Project Welcome Home will provide community-based clinical services and permanent supportive housing to 150-200 chronically homeless individuals who are currently frequent users of the County’s emergency rooms, acute mental health facilities and jail. “The Pay for Success model offers promise for governments seeking to address complex challenges while connecting payments for services to results,” said President Dave Cortese, of the County of Santa Clara Board of Supervisors, who initially recommended that the County examine the feasibility of Pay for Success. “We are eager to test the model on chronic homelessness, by helping people with the most difficulty to stabilize their lives through supportive housing.” Pay for Success is a funding model under which governments pay for services only if and when a service provider achieves clearly defined, measurable results. Pay for Success leverages upfront funding for service providers from the private sector and philanthropic foundations and rigorously measures the effectiveness of programs over time. “Supportive housing is a powerful model for ending homelessness, and we’ve seen its tremendous impact on the most vulnerable people in our community - people who are chronically homeless and have been on the street for years,” said Louis Chicoine, Abode’s Executive Director.

AUGUST 21-27, 2015

“Abode Services is excited to be working with Santa Clara County on a project that will not only change the lives of participants, but also provide a template for future programs across the country seeking the best way to address chronic homelessness.” On any given night, more than 6,500 people in the County of Santa Clara are homeless, of whom over 2,200 can be classified as chronically homeless. Studies have shown that chronically homeless individuals consume significant and disproportionate government resources in the form of emergency room visits, jail time, and other services that provide only short-term relief. The County and Destination: Home, a program of the Health Trust, supported the recently released report, “Home Not Found: The Cost of Homelessness in Silicon Valley,” which indicated that more than $3 billion of public services were used by 104,206 County residents who experienced homelessness at any point between 2007 and 2012. A significant percentage of these costs were attributed to a subset of this population who are homeless for long periods of time. The study identified a group of 2,800 persistently homeless residents in Santa Clara County with average costs of about $83,000 per year in public services. The County is committed to targeting resources to create new, ongoing housing opportunities and to prevent the dangerous cycle of long-term homelessness. “The County selected Abode Services, one of the Bay Area’s largest and most effective providers of housing services, as the lead service provider for this innovative project,” said the County’s Chief Operating Officer Gary Graves. “We are confident that Abode’s approach of providing supportive services and helping to stabilize tenants’ income, in addition to varied housing options will help to make real

progress towards eliminating chronic homelessness.” For individuals enrolled in Project Welcome Home, Abode will provide an array of supportive services integrated with housing, delivered through an evidence-based “Housing First” approach, designed to end the participants’ homelessness and provide increased access to ongoing physical and behavioral health services. Project Welcome Home has received $6.9 million in upfront funding from private and philanthropic funders. Funders include The Sobrato Family Foundation, The California Endowment, The Health Trust, The Reinvestment Fund (TRF), Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH), The James Irvine Foundation, and Google.org. Laura and John Arnold Foundation will provide key support for the project’s evaluation. As part of the upfront funding, Abode has also committed $500,000 of deferred service fees as additional investment in the project. Through this Pay for Success model, funders will only be repaid based on Abode’s success in assisting participants in achieving continuous stable housing. “The Sobrato Family Foundation’s participation in this project signals our support for keeping individuals and families permanently housed and connected to their communities,” said Rick Williams, CEO of the Sobrato Family Foundation. “We also support Pay for Success as an innovative funding strategy that creates a pathway for private investors to participate in efforts to improve their communities while making a social and financial return.” Independent evaluators from the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) will evaluate the effectiveness of the services in improving client health, social service utilization and economic benefit to the County.

nities that will prepare our students for the 21st century.”

400 educators gathered at Union Middle School August 14th for the Santa Clara County Office of Education’s EdTech Innovation Summit, a day of world-class professional learning designed to help districts discover and share the best technological tools for helping students master challenging Common Core standards. The event is just one of the many ways in which the SCCOE is supporting districts in the effort to create dynamic classrooms that prepare students to navigate the technologies and career paths of the future.

What started last year as an event for 150 attendees at the SCCOE has more than doubled in size due to participant demand, featuring nearly 50 sessions on topics such as paperless classrooms, integrating the arts into a technology-rich curriculum, and effective research in the digital age. The entire afternoon was devoted to “edcamps,” opportunities for teachers to “crowdsource” inspiration and solutions based on common areas of interest. Though similar professional learning events can cost participants between $300-450 in registration fees, thanks to the partnership of the San Mateo County Office of Education and five local school districts, the Summit was offered free of charge to all attendees.

“With its emphasis on collaboration and cutting-edge classroom practices to engage all learning styles, the EdTech Innovation Summit is an exciting way to kick off the new academic year,” said County Superintendent of Schools Jon Gundry. “There is no better time for us to think boldly and dream big about the learning opportu-

“I attended last year as well, and the thing I really liked is that I was learning from people in the classroom who had lots of practical ideas for

11

things I could put to use right away,” said attendee Mary Fran Lynch from Union School District. “I’m also a trainer, so I can take everything here back to my district and help other teachers use it in their classrooms.” The Summit is one piece of the SCCOE’s larger efforts to promote the strategic importance of technology in the classroom. Last week the office hosted partnered with the U.S. Department of Education, the California Attorney General’s Office and other nonprofits to host a student data privacy workshop designed to help educators keep student information safe. In October, the SCCOE will co-host the EdSurge Tech for Schools Summit at the Computer History Museum, and throughout the year districts can take advantage of customized professional development across a variety of technology-related topics.

Eden Area law enforcement agencies, Alameda County, advocacy groups, and school district officials highlight student safety at and near schools at the beginning of the school year.

Castro Valley CALIFORNIA In recent years, there has been an increasing number of safety concerns surround-

ing school drop-off and pickup of students at the 34 Eden Area public schools. Many schools have outdated infrastructure and facilities, leading to traffic and safety issues. From 2010 to 2012, there

have been nearly 250 pedestrian or bicyclist-involved collisions that occurred within a 1⁄2 mile of an Eden Area school according to Alameda County traffic data. During the summer, Alameda County Supervisor Miley met with the Sheriff’s Office, California Highway Patrol (CHP), Public Works Agency, Safe Routes to Schools, BikeWalkCV and the School District Superintendents of Castro Valley, San Lorenzo, and Hayward to address this urgent traffic safety issue.

The meetings focused on three essentials for drop-off and pick-up safety - Engineering, Education, and Enforcement. “Through the efforts of the school districts, advocacy groups, law enforcement, and the County, it is my hope that this awareness campaign around safe pick-up and drop-off practices is actualized throughout the entire school year,” stated Supervisor Miley. On Tuesday a press conference was held to raise awareness about student safety during school pick-up and drop-off and to urge teachers, students and parents to work in unity for a positive start to the school year.


Doug Moss & Roddy Scheer EARTHTALK SeaWorld has faced criticism and plummeting profits after the release of the 2013 documentary, Blackfish, which tells the story of Tilikum, a performing killer whale that killed several people while in captivity. Although wild capture was outlawed in the U.S. in 1972, killer whales continued to be seized in foreign waters: Tilikum was caught, aged two, off Iceland in 1983. Today, SeaWorld asserts that its population of killer whales has been successfully producing healthy offspring since 1985, and the success of this program has made it possible for them to care for and display killer whales to the public without collecting a killer whale from the wild in 35 years. For its part, SeaWorld disputes the negative accusa-

tions. Earlier this summer, SeaWorld San Diego released a study contrasting current published data for survival and reproductive activity of known-age Pacific Northwest killer whales since 1975 with the life history of killer whales in SeaWorld’s care. The study concluded the average life expectancy for SeaWorld’s killer whales is 41.6 years; average life expectancies for Southern and Northern Resident killer whales are 29.0 and 42.3 years, respectively. “Our animals are living as long as wild populations,” says Dr. Todd Robeck, Vice President of Theriogeneology at SeaWorld and the primary author of the study. “The data shows without a doubt that our animals live as long as the ones in the wild.” Additionally, the study indicates that average calf survival rate to age two in the Southern Resident killer

whale population is 79.9 percent—less than SeaWorld’s 96.6 percent average. “Although emotion will always be a part of the debate as to whether killer whales, or any other species, should be maintained in human care, it is absolutely necessary to have validated facts when an argument for or against

is being made on scientific grounds,” says study author Kevin Willis, Vice President for Biological Programs for the Minnesota Zoo. “Based on the available data, it is now clear that it cannot be truthfully argued that killer whales should not be maintained in captivity because they have a shortened life expectancy relative to their wild

counterparts,” Willis adds. Animal rights groups have been quick to criticize SeaWorld’s study. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) points out that another study published in April 2015 in the journal Marine Mammal Science found that the median life expectancy of 83 killer whales kept in captivity from 1961-2014 in the U.S. was only 12 years. The study also determined that 118 killer whales kept in facilities outside the U.S. during those same years were found to have a median lifespan of just four years. “Contrary to what the authors of this study—three of whom are SeaWorld employees, while the fourth works for a zoo—would have people believe, the average age of the orcas who have died at SeaWorld is 13 years, and only one orca at SeaWorld—Corky, who was captured in the wild—has

actually reached SeaWorld’s claimed ‘average life expectancy’ of 41.6 years,” reports Jared Goodman, PETA’s director of animal law. “Every single orca who has perished at SeaWorld died far short of how long they are expected to live, though it is in fact hard to call it ‘living’ when their ‘life’ consists of being forced to perform circus-style tricks in a tiny concrete tank. SeaWorld’s claims simply don’t hold water.” CONTACTS: SeaWorld, www.seaworld. com; Blackfish, www.blackfishmovie.com; PETA, www. peta.org.

Mario Jiménez Castillo EL OBSERVADOR Michael de Notre Dame era su nombre de pila, nació en Francia en el siglo XVI, Todas sus predicciones fueron escritas en centurias enigmáticas porque en aquel tiempo tenía que maquillar los escritos que plasmaban sus visiones y creencias ya que la tristemente celebre Inquisición exterminaba a todo aquel que tuviera ideas o expresará conceptos diferentes a los razonamientos y dictámenes de la iglesia católica. Fue un médico afamado en Europa, dedicado de lleno a la astrología científica, sufrió persecución; sin embargo, varios nobles le protegieron y le ocultaron de los temibles inquisidores. Sus profecías han tenido miles de interpretaciones, en ellas se encuentran pasajes que señalan la primera y segunda guerra mundial, el asesinato de los hermanos Kennedy, la invención de la computadora, la aparición de un hombre con turbante azul quien se converti-

ría en el tercer Anticristo, incluso hace alusión a la decadencia de una religión falsa y una gran carestía de alimentos que azotaría el mundo durante el siglo XXI. En sus predicciones también habla sobre el aumento del nivel del mar debido al derretimiento del hielo en ambos polos. Grandes porciones de tierra serían absorbidas por el mar, pero esto no sería el fin del mundo sino el inicio de un nuevo ciclo en la vida de nuestro planeta. El continente perdido de la Atlántida resurgiría en el océano Atlántico y una nueva potencia mundial emergería. Él detalló que la raza humana estaría a punto de evolucionar a una nueva especie mucho más avanzada, inteligente y espiritual. La sobre población mundial quedaría en el pasado porque millones y millones de personas morirían con las inundaciones provocadas por los océanos. Nuevas especies de animales poblarían los nuevos territorios terrestres, plantas y árboles con follajes diferentes crecerían en los montes y praderas. La vestimenta de la nueva raza emergente sería totalmente diferente y nosotros junto a nuestra historia llegaríamos a ser una especie de leyenda para el nuevo ser humano, quién vivirá

una vida más saludable y con mucho mayor respeto por sus semejantes y por el planeta. Así como nosotros consideramos al hombre de las cavernas, tan primitivo y atrasado, asimismo seremos vistos por los nuevos seres humanos que emergerán con el nuevo orden mundial. Este nuevo ser humano debido a lo avanzado de la especie podrá tener encuentros cercanos con extraterrestres, podrá visitar mentalmente otras dimensiones y sabrá por fin develar los misterios ocultos de las religiones predominantes del pasado. En sus últimas visiones se dice que alcanzó a visualizar que la raza humana trascenderá la materia, logrando al mismo tiempo colonizar el espacio. Algunas de las interpretaciones de las centurias coinciden en señalar que faltan dos planetas por descubrirse en el sistema solar, los cuales se descubrirán en o antes del año 2025. Nostradamus, al contrario de lo que se cree sobre el universo, afirmó que este no es infinito y que los hoyos negros que resultan de la explosión de una super nova (estrella en evolución) son los que conducen a los límites del mismo. Sin lugar a dudas Nostradamus ha sido el profeta visionario más reconocido solamente antecedido por los profetas bíblicos.

John Leguizamo tiene una carrera en la industria de Hollywood y teatro Broadway ecléctica que empezó en 1984 con una parte en el programa popular de acción Miami Vice. Desde entonces el actor Colombiano a trabajado a llegar ser uno de los más chistosos y venerados en el entrenamiento en inglés y español. Nacido en Bogotá en 1964 su familia se reubico a Nueva York cuando tenía solo cuatro anos. Leguizamo dice que sus inicios en la industria de entretenimiento eran poco convencional, parte de esa razón era que tenía elementos indeseables en su medio ambiente. Dice Leguizamo, “lo que pasó fue que yo tenía muchos problemas como chico, estaba fallando en el colegio, y todo eso.” No fue hasta que su profesor de matemáticas mencionó que tenía potencial que Leguizamo vio que el entretenimiento era algo que perseguir. “De pronto un profesor de matemática me dijo que yo era muy chistoso, y muy cómico, y por que no utilizar esas habilidades para tratar de tener una carrera en algo positivo.” Un momento que cemento el logro de actuar fue cuando a los 17 anos Leguizamo participó en su primera obra de teatro. “(En) una escena yo me enamore con la actuación allí. Yo me sentía libre, me sentía super-vivo. Y tenía adrenalina en el cuerpo y allí es donde mi vida se puso en un camino muy positivo.” Es entonces que el joven Leguizamo puso en frente la meta de hacerse un actor y artista. “De allí empecé a estudiar en un colegio de actuación y allí me salieron muchos roles en peliculas de estudiantes. Conseguí un agente pronto ya estaba en Miami Vice. Allí empezó mi carrera.”

AUGUST 21-27, 2015

Siendo uno de los latinos más conocidos en muchos medios de entretenimiento, en inglés como en español, ha dado la oportunidad para que represente y muestre cómo son los latinos: diversos, chistosos, serios, complicados y todo entremedio. “Yo crecí con todos los hispanos; mexicanos, cubanos, colombianos, puertorriqueños dominicanos, y estaban todos allí. Yo sabía que tenemos talento, que éramos encantadores que éramos carismáticos y tenía mucho orgullo de ser latino. Entonces cuando agentes querían que me cambiara el nombre yo les decía ‘están locos’ porque mi gente es muy interesante.” Dice Leguizamo que aunque su pasión es actuar, le encanta hacer sus obras personales, empezando con ‘Mambo Mouth’en 1991. Estas le ayudan a interactuar con la gente y demostrar su vida y experiencias latinas, algo que no se ve mucho en el cine y teatro norteamericano. “Por eso me puse a escribir mis propias obras, no veía las oportunidades de representar a mi gente como yo los veía en la vida real. Entonces me puse a escribir ‘Mambo Mouth’ y ‘Spic-O-Rama’ y de allí empezó. Yo fui como un pionero, y empezaron a abrir las puertas para todos los actores latinos y obras de teatro latinos y talento latino.” Estas obras de teatro han logrado a conectar a Leguizamo con sus raíces, y las raíces de su audiencia a un nivel mucho mas personal. “Lo rico es la relación entre la audiencia estamos allí juntos y es una experiencia que estamos pasando juntos. Es muy diferente que estar en una película yo disfruto hacerla, pero no es la misa experiencia de ver una persona en vivo y verlos allí hablar, los errores que pasan, los cuentos entre nosotros. Puedo improvisar mucho y nos podemos comunicar es una cosa diferente y muy emocionante estar vivo.” Es por esa versatilidad que Leguizamo llega a tomar

tantos papeles cinematográficos. Su modo de ser y experiencias ayudan a proyectar a la audiencia carisma y realidad. ‘American Ultra’, una película de comedia/acción que estrena este viernes 21 de Agosto, tiene a Leguizamo trabajando junto a los actores Jesse Eisenberg y Kristen Stewart. En su nuevo rol de ‘Rose’, un traficante de drogas en la película, incorporó su imaginación y partes de su vida real para convertirse al personaje. “Rose es un de esos amigos malos que uno tiene que es una mala influencia y que de todos modos les dicen que no se meta con ese tipo pero uno, porque son tan queridos y encantadores y chistosos entonces te la pasas con ellos. Lo invente un poquito pero se parece a una persona que yo conocí en bachillerato que era un hustler completo. Entonces yo de allí forme un personaje de ese tipo que era un tipo muy, tu sabes, que abusaba de la gente, pero muy carismático.” En ‘American Ultra’ ‘Rose’ es parte de la vida de ‘Mike Howell’ (Jesse Eisenberg) quien es un muchacho un poco perdido y confuso sobre la vida. Dice Leguizamo, “la CIA lo había vuelto como un agente pero le borraron la memoria, pero la memoria le regresa cuando fuma marihuana y se vuelve un asesino.” Finalmente, Leguizamo habla sobre el proyecto que mas espera, su primer graphic novel basado en su obra ‘Ghetto Klown’. “Yo estoy muy emocionado, sale este otoño, (ya lo pueden pre-ordenar por amazon) y es una obra de arte. Es mi mejor espectáculo que he hecho y también uno de los mejores graphic novels que van a ver.” Es por estos proyectos como los de cine y televisión que Leguizamo tiene creatividad y energía sin límites. Su trabajo en el cine, el teatro, la televisión y la literatura no tiene igual.


the market to bear a continual barrage of rent increases with no push back.

Frank Rolfe SPECIAL TO EL OBSERVADOR Recent studies show that home ownership is on a path to decline to around 61% of households by 2020, which is the lowest level in half a century. If current trends continue, America could cross the line into having more renters than homeowners in the years ahead. That brings up the question: what is the impact of the U.S. becoming a nation of renters? Certain doom for singlefamily home values Single-family homes have never made much sense from an economic perspective. You

can rent homes for far less than the cost of a mortgage, property tax, insurance, repairs, etc. And that does not even include the cost of the down payment. The only reason that people buy homes is the pride of being a homeowner, coupled with the perception that they will be priced out of the market as values keep rising. In a declining market, the sense of urgency is removed and prices plummet. The current run-up in home prices since the 2007 mortgage collapse is being called the “second bubble” and will no doubt burst shortly. New, stringent mortgage regulations, brought on by the 2007 mortgage collapse, will keep most marginal and first time buyers deprived of the option of buying a home.

Higher rents With the theory of supply and demand, the higher the demand, the higher the price. As we transition into a nation of renters, expect rents to increase. That effect is already visible in the apartment market, as the average apartment rent in the U.S. has climbed to $1,150 per month. The increase in rents will also hit mobile home parks, duplexes, RV parks and any other rental property. How high can the rents go? There’s really no limit, as there is only law known as “rent control” in a small number of states, such as California. So there’s no limit to rent increases other than simply what the market will bear. Since you have to have a roof over your head, expect

More construction of apartments It’s already happening in most urban metropolitan areas: new apartment construction. It is estimated that around 210,000 apartments will be built in 2015, following a total of 238,000 in 2014. These apartments are renting virtually as fast as they can be built, as most new household formations have only rentals as an option. There is also a huge push from Baby Boomers downsizing into rental housing. The only sector that has no new construction is the mobile home park arena, and that’s due to local ordinances that do not allow new mobile

home parks to be built. As a result, mobile home rents, in particular, should rise briskly going forward. More population movement Another byproduct of becoming a nation of renters is a much more mobile population. If there’s no house to sell, then there’s no barrier to seeking employment anywhere in the U.S., or retiring to any locale. Areas that offer good quality of living and strong employment opportunities will show significant population improvements, while those that offer a poor living product will lose people at a fast pace. Indeed, there may be giant shifts of population in the U.S. in the years ahead, in quantities that have never been seen before.

19

Conclusion The U.S. is on a path to becoming a country of renters rather than homeowners. Watch for opportunities that are created as a result of this trend, and stay away from megatrends that can hurt your investment dollars.
