SANTA CLARA COUNTY HOUSING AUTHORITY RAISES VOUCHER PAYMENT In an effort to begin closing the widening gap between federal housing assistance and skyrocketing rents in Silicon Valley, the Housing Authority of the County of Santa Clara (HACSC) is raising the maximum monthly rental housing assistance for Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) program participants to 110 percent of the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) fair market rents. (More online) CALIFORNIA DEATH PENALTY ON TRIAL California’s attorney general is appealing last year’s ruling that declared the state’s system of capital punishment unconstitutional. The federal judge in that case said the extensive delays mean the system itself constitutes cruel and unusual punishment, and does not deter crime or exact retribution. (More on our site)

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR

On Labor Day, Monday, September 7, 2015, let’s take time to honor and respect those who do the labor needed to keep this global economy operating reasonably well. In the past, almost 50% belonged to a union which exercised collective bargaining rights during labor contract negotiations. These negotiations are no longer as simple as those noted in the Gospel parables. One parable (Matthew) tells about a vineyard owner paying those who labored all day as much as those who labored only a portion of that harvest day. Do you think that would happen today? What would it take to have a corporate policy which provided its labor force living wages rather than minimum wages? That is not going to happen until those who labor stop being complicit because ‘that is the way things are’ in this capitalistic culture in which we all live. The “top 1%” do not seem to be appreciative of what labor contributes daily to their influence and wealth. This Labor Day marks the beginning of the political campaigns by those who aspire to become the next President of the United States of America. “We, the People’, most of whom are workers, will select many elected officials on the first Tuesday of November, 2016, some 14 months hence. During this interval, it would be a good thing to learn about the public policy issues which have been neglected by the current elected representatives. Use your time to become informed factually and truthfully. Enable yourself to discern which candidate would be fair, ethical, disciplined, and transparent while in elected public office. The reality today is that just enough elected officials are influenced by special interests, and their lobbyists who deliver the dark money, which thwarts the democratic process established by the Founding Fathers. Those immigrant Europeans brought with them their cultural concepts of governance and ownership of the basic resources required by all of us. The outcome was a struggle which continues today. How do the essentials continue to be accessible to all (food-our ‘daily bread’;the warm security of shelter in a safe community; clothing; medical care; education; truthful and useful information which is not propaganda; some respect and inclusion)? Today’s focus is on control. Ownership and profits is flawed by the lack of a global stewardship which facilitates sharing of access to available work opportunity, which distributes the abundant resources of this nation through fair access to all who freely wish to labor. Current applied business paradigms need to include parameters reflecting the humane ideals included in the American Constitution. We, the people who includes many informed laborers, are all complicit in accepting “many things as they are today”. Too many of laborers neglect to be involved or engaged because ‘That is the way things have always been”. We are all the product of our education, training and cultural values taught to us by our parents. It is these values which need to become more evident in our local communities. Some practices and traditions need to be re-examined in the light of current radical thoughts which initiate changes needed. Our internal personal values give us the gut feeling about right and wrong. Those 158 million workers whose wages have been static since 1975 must take their opportunities to restore the American Dream in a peaceful and non-violent manner by preparing to vote this coming November 2015 and again in November 2016 when the next president will be elected. Recently, Terrence P. Gleeson, Rector, All Saints Episcopal Church, Palo Alto, said, “This may seem like a bad joke, but one of the services (presidential candidate) Donald Trump (has) pro-

vided is a list of ‘what remains’ (unresolved). The xenophobic, racist, isolationist following he (Trump) attracts didn’t come from nowhere. It is the stifled voice of a massive slice of this nation’s (residents), making explicit the enormous well of (anxiety, frustration), fear and anger and prejudice that resides unaddressed and unredeemed. What is it in fifty years time our children will look back (upon) and say, “We can’t believe our parents allowed that to happen; We can’t believe they went to church; read the Holy Bible’s Gospels, and yet accepted (all) that!” Perhaps (our children) will be living in a police state, a nation surrounded by (fences topped by) razor wire; perhaps (our children will) stand in the desert that used to be the (verdant & productive) Central Valley, perhaps (our children will) live in a nuclear wilderness, perhaps (our children) will be celebrating some victory in the Supreme Court that we have not yet imagined. Just as we can look back at segregation and exclusion and violence and prejudice and the persecution of all sorts of minorities, what is it that is still coming out of us, individually and collectively, that is defiling (all of) us? It would seem to me (to be) the height of arrogance to imagine that we have entirely cast off the works of darkness, either as a (nation), society, or even as individuals. Because we are creatures of our own history, (values, personal experiences) and culture; perhaps we cannot even imagine where (Divine Providence, i.e.,) GOD may be leading us (to), but we do have clues as to where to look for the (blessed guidance) of God.” We, who labor, must not be distracted by demeaning insults and commentary. We. who do the honest productive labor, have much to do during the next 14 months. If we are to be “Our brother/sister’s keeper; if we do unto others as we would have them do unto us; if we love our neighbor as we would love our own family, community, and nation; if we respond by doing the right thing, then we will merit the honor and respect we earned through our decisions, actions, faith, and hopes. Together our inclusive actions may create a society akin to ‘heaven on earth’ which has enough resources for all of us; but not enough for the greedy (Mahatma Gandhi). May each of us resolve to begin now...today to enable the honor and respect due to those who labor with knowledge, skill, integrity and faith.

Pegamento resistente y expandible que se adhiere a todo Nayoon Jin NEW AMERICA MEDIA SAN FRANCISCO - Katia Álvarez, de 34 años, está convencida de que todos los cuidadores de niños deberían hacer los cursos del Programa Manzana Sana [Healthy Apple Program] para que los pequeños alumnos a su cargo puedan beneficiarse física y emocionalmente. Lanzado en 31 sitios como programa piloto por el Children’s Council San Francisco (CCSF) en 2013, Healthy Apple hizo su apertura en toda la ciudad en noviembre del año siguiente después de que el CCSF evaluara su impacto y desarrollara materiales para el programa. Álvarez, quien ha trabajado en la YMCA de la Misión por ocho años como directora del programa pre-escolar, dijo que los dos componentes clave del Healthy Apple resonaron en ella desde el momento que leyó sobre éste en un correo electrónico promocional: la nutrición y la actividad física. Por eso no dudó en apuntarse como participante piloto, dijo. Y valió la pena. La YMCA de la Misión recibió premios Healthy Apple por la excelencia en el cuidado de niños en 2013: el bronce en nutrición, el bronce en actividad física, y el dorado en reducción de tiempo frente a la pantalla. Hay flexibilidad entre las actividades que se ofrecen a los

niños aquí en la Y. Si alguien no quiere jugar al fútbol o al básquetbol un día, puede optar por pintar o andar en bicicleta en su lugar. “Todas estas actividades ayudan a los niños a eliminar estrés”, observó la monitora Nabila Khalil. Dijo que muchos de los niños vienen de casas donde no es posible moverse libremente, eliminando así el estrés. Según el Children’s Council San Francisco, aproximadamente 1 de 3 niños de bajos ingresos entre los dos y cinco años de edad tiene sobrepeso o es obeso. Estudios recientes han mostrado que los niños que tienen sobrepeso y son obesos a los cinco años tienen más probabilidades de quedarse así durante la adolescencia. Estas condiciones tienen consecuencias físicas e incluso de salud mental a largo plazo. Consecuencias graves incluyen enfermedades cardiovasculares. Khalil dice que la mayoría de los niños en la Y -- alrededor del 80 por ciento -- son latinos de familias de bajos ingresos. Como los niños pasan a menudo de 30 a 50 horas por semana en instalaciones de la guardería con personas que no son sus padres, los profesionales de guarderías juegan un papel importante en promover patrones tempranos que se convertirán en hábitos sanos para toda la vida. El

objetivo del Healthy Apple Program es reducir las tasas de obesidad infantil. “Nuestro objetivo es tener un impacto positivo en la salud de los niños de San Francisco ayudando a los profesionales de las guarderías a implementar las mejores prácticas basadas en la investigación de la nutrición infantil y la actividad física”, dijo Raegan Sales, la coordinadora del Healthy Apple Program. Álvarez dijo que antes de participar en el Healthy Apple Program, ella y los otros maestros no sabían verdaderamente por qué era importante proporcionar comidas sanas a sus niños. Sin embargo, ahora sabe cuánto esto puede afectar al bienestar de los niños en sus años formativos.

La YMCA de la Misión no va a dormirse en los laureles por el reconocimiento que ha recibido. Quiere hacer más mejoras en lo que ofrece a los niños de pre-escolar. Los instructores toman tests de auto-evaluación en línea. Asisten a talleres sobre nutrición y actividad física que ocasionalmente ofrece el Healthy Apple Program. “Queremos mejorar nuestros programas preescolares aún más”, dijo Álvarez. Animada por el entusiasmo con que los niños han aceptado las actividades físicas, la guardería de la YMCA de la

Misión también ha contratado a un instructor de yoga para los niños. Tres veces por semana durante media hora, los niños pequeños se convierten en pretzels humanos. El Healthy Apple Program es administrado e implemen-

tado por el Children’s Council of San Francisco. Para más información, vea http:// healthyapple.org Este artículo es patrocinado por Healthy Hearts, un programa del Departamento de Salud Pública de

San Francisco que promueve ejercicio gratis para latinos y afro-americanos como forma de luchar contra la enfermedad cardiovascular. Para información sobre ejercicio gratuito, llama al 211. Sigue #healthyheartsf en Facebook y Twitter.

BPT As the fall and winter months approach, you’re probably planning to take preventative health measures recommended by your doctor: get the flu shot; wash your hands more often and sneeze into your elbow instead of your hands. But one thing that makes you more susceptible to getting sick is being stressed and run down. Despite living in a world where everyone is constantly on-the-go, you can’t avoid the fact that proper sleep is a key element when it comes to overall health. Sleep is your body’s time to recuperate, so the less quality sleep you get, the less time your body has to do what it needs to do to keep you healthy. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends adults get seven-to-eight hours of sleep each night, and that teens and children get nine hours or more. Unfortunately, a quarter of the American population reports that they get inadequate sleep, which the CDC has deemed a public health epidemic. However, changing a few simple things about your daily routine or

BPT

the room in which you sleep can greatly improve the quality of the sleep you get and, in turn, help improve your overall health. Stick to a sleep schedule. Make sure that you go to bed and get up at roughly the same time each day, even on weekends. Having a consistent sleep pattern helps regulate your body’s sleep-wake cycle, helping you to sleep better at night. If you have trouble falling asleep within the first 20 minutes or so of going to bed, that’s okay – simply go into another room and do something relaxing until you feel tired. Agonizing over falling asleep will only make it tougher for you to get the rest you need. Assess your sleeping conditions. Your bedroom should

be cool – between 60 and 67 degrees – and should be dark and quiet. Consider using room-darkening shades, and make sure to ‘power down’ before you go to sleep. This means turning off TVs, computers or other sources of blue light that may hurt your sleep. To help block-out extra noise, consider using a fan or ‘white noise’ machines to help you fall asleep and stay asleep. There are plenty of reasons to love the fall and winter months, and you’ll certainly appreciate these cooler months even more if you’re getting the adequate amount of sleep that you need to stay healthy. If you’re having trouble sleeping, start by making changes right to your bedroom – see what a difference the quality of your bedding can make.

Ahora sí nos estamos acercando oficialmente al final del verano. Ojalá hayas disfrutado del aire libre, la playa y la piscina. Estas actividades son esenciales durante el verano, pero el sol, la sal, el cloro y el sudor pueden irritar las partes más delicadas y a veces desatendidas de la piel. Por eso la Dra. Alicia Barba, experta en el cuidado de piel y dermatóloga certificada, nos ha compartido algunos de sus consejos para el mejor cuidado de la piel, ¡ayudando a renovar tu piel para que sigas disfrutando de tus últimas actividades del verano con confianza! Conoce la diferencia entre la humedad buena y mala: Cuando se trata de las axilas hay “humectación mala” y “humectación buena”. 1. La “humectación mala” se refiere al exceso de sudor que se queda en la superficie de la piel y deja que la sal y las enzimas afecten la barrera saludable de la piel. Entonces cuando no usamos un antitranspirante, la “humectación mala” nos causa no solamente el mal olor, sino también que la piel se nos quiebre y agriete. 2. La “humectación buena” es un elemento importante para el cuidado de la piel y se refiere a la humectación que nos ponemos para proteger e hidratar la piel. “Por eso te recomiendo que uses un desodorante/antitranspirante que va más allá de protección y contiene ingredientes hidratantes como humectantes y aceite de girasol,” dice la Dra. Barba.

Al afeitarte, presta atención a tus hábitos: 1. Usa productos que calman la piel: el desodorante/

antitranspirante Dove Advanced Care ofrece 48 horas de protección contra el olor y la humedad y está diseñado para hidratar la piel y ayudarla a retener la “humectación buena” a través del tiempo. Dove Advanced Care con NutriumMoisture, está compuesto por ingredientes que sólo Dove ofrece para ayudar a que la piel mantenga su equilibrio de humedad a lo largo del tiempo. 2. Asegúrate de tener una buena rasuradora: * Afeitarte con una buena rasuradora realmente produce una gran diferencia. Recuerda que debes cambiar tu rasuradora con frecuencia y guardarla fuera de la ducha y lejos de la humedad mientras no la estés usando para evitar la proliferación de bacterias y la oxidación de la navaja. * Nunca uses una rasuradora oxidada y nunca la compartas con nadie, incluyendo familiares. * Presionar la rasuradora contra la piel no te resultará en un mejor afeitado. De hecho, esto causa más irritación y puede provocar hiperpigmentación o manchas en piel de las axilas. 3. Crema de afeitar: Cuando te afeitas en la ducha, usa una crema o espuma de afeitar o por lo menos una barra suave de jabón para aliviar la fric-

ción excesiva y ayudar a que la rasuradora se deslice sobre la piel axilar sensible. Recuerda que de vez en cuando puedes darle a tu piel un descanso y no afeitarte en uno o dos días. Mantente hidratada: Interna y externamente. Aunque se aproxime la temporada de otoño y temperaturas más frías, y probablemente no estás sudando como en los meses más cálidos, continúa bebiendo mucha agua. Hidrata tus axilas con un desodorante/antitranspirante adecuado como Dove Advanced Care. Para las otras partes de tu piel, usa crema de manos y pies para evitar grietas y aplica una loción gruesa después de la ducha para darle a tu cuerpo toda la hidratación que necesita. Busca la fragancia que te gusta: ¡Cuando hueles bien te sientes bien! Busca un desodorante/antitranspirante que sea verdaderamente multitarea, ofreciéndote protección y beneficios hidratantes, algo que todas podemos apreciar. Dove Advanced Care viene en 13 variantes diversas, incluyendo Powder Soft con un aroma suave y fresco; Revive con una mezcla de granada y verbena de limón y un favorito del verano; y Caring Coconut, con perfume ligero de coco mezclado con notas florales de jazmín. ¡Realmente hay una fragancia para todas!

Suzanne Potter CALIFORNIA NEWS SERVICE SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Workers and labor advocates rallied in Sacramento Tuesday in support of a bill to combat wage theft by companies that fail to pay workers overtime or give legally-required breaks during work shifts. Senate Bill 588, known as the “Fair Day’s Pay Act,” would close loopholes that have allowed some unscrupulous employers to avoid paying judgments when they’re found guilty of wage theft. Alexandra Suh, executive director with the Koreatown Immigrant Workers Alliance in Los Angeles, says only about 15 percent of employees who win judgments are ever paid. “Workers across California are facing a crisis of wage theft,” she says. “Even when they go to the Labor Commission, they win judgments but they cannot collect. SB 588 provides tools to help those workers collect.”

BUSINESS

The bill has already passed the state Senate and several Assembly committees, and is expected to go before the full Assembly today or Wednesday. According to a UCLA labor study, workers in Los Angeles lose $1.4 billion a year to wage theft. Suh says employers often change the name of their business to avoid paying judgments - placing an additional burden on employees. “Workers work six, sometimes seven days a week, but many of them aren’t even getting the minimum wage, overtime, meal breaks and rest breaks,” she says. “The levels of wage theft are staggering, and people are trying to support their families.” Suh notes the California Chamber of Commerce objected at first to the bill, worrying it would lead to frivolous lawsuits. The bill’s authors made adjustments and the chamber dropped its opposition.

Celebrando la cosecha con comunidad, tradición y alimentos frescos

¡La Autoridad de Espacio Abierto del Valle de Santa Clara le invita a usted y a su familia a nuestro festival anual de la cosecha! Alrededor del mundo, la cosecha es un momento para celebrar. Ya se trate de una ceremonia que honra la tierra, un ritual para asegurar una cosecha abundante, o una reunión para compartir la cosecha, celebraciones de la cosecha representan nuestra conexión con los alimentos que cultivamos. El otoño es un tiempo para honrar a la tierra, aquellos que la trabajan, y los importantes cultivos, alimentos y medicinas que llegaron de Centro y Sudamérica. Aquí en el Valle de Santa Clara, muchos cultivos se cosechan a finales de verano, a veces bajo la denominada luna de cosecha, la luna llena más cercana al equinoccio de otoño. Nuestras granjas y ranchos locales nos proporcionan una gran cantidad de alimentos frescos y saludables, desde chabacanos a los pimientos a verduras de hoja para ensaladas. A pesar de que muchas de nuestras tierras agrícolas se han perdido con el desarrollo urbano, el Valle de las Delicias del Corazón sigue ofreciendo una cosecha abundante, con más de 40 mercados de agricultores certificados que ofrecen una maravillosa variedad de frutas y vegetales cultivados localmente. La Autoridad de Espacio Abierto del Valle de Santa Clara está ayudando a proteger a nuestras tierras agrícolas restantes y otros espacios abiertos. La Autoridad de Espacio Abierto ha protegido más de 16.000 acres de tierra - incluyendo granjas y ranchos en funcionamiento - y opera tres reservas abiertas al público de forma gratuita. Esta inversión en la tierra y recursos naturales está preservando la belleza escénica de la región, protegiendo los recursos hídricos y las fuentes locales de alimentos frescos, y proporFcionando oportunidades de recreación al aire libre para las generaciones actuales y futuras. La Autoridad de Espacio Abierto le invita a una gran celebración de nuestro patrimonio agrícola local: la Fiesta Fa-

miliar de la Cosecha en Coyote Valley. El sábado 19 de septiembre, el Coyote Valley Open Space Preserve en Morgan Hill se avivará con un festival de música, baile, animales vivos de Happy Hollow Zoo, narración de cuentos, juegos y caminatas guiadas. Con el presentador de ABC-KGO Dan Ashley como maestro de ceremonias y la banda de rock clásico PUSH, el animador infantil Andy Z, y la chef Erica Schaal demostrando cómo cocinar la paella, la Fiesta de la Cosecha incluirá entretenimiento animado para toda la familia. La entrada y el estacionamiento son gratuitos, y los comerciantes locales estarán vendiendo alimentos y bebidas asequibles de nuestras granjas locales. No se pierda esta celebración comunitaria de la deliciosa cosecha local, nuestras tierras agrícolas, y las tradiciones de otoño de toda nuestra comunidad.

San Jose CALIFORNIA This past Saturday 200 people marched on Downtown San Jose demanding equal rights for women and girls in celebration of National Women’s Equality Day as well as the 95th Anniversary of a woman’s right to vote. This inaugural event was lead by event co-chairs Melonie Drotts and Darcie Green, both Latinas with roots in East San Jose. ( Darcie serves as President of the Santa Clara County Board of Education) The feminist movement has been criticized for being a mostly “white woman’s cause’’. However, with the help of Melonie, Darcie and their group of diverse and dedicated women, Santa Clara County seems to be breaking that stereotype. The purpose of the march and rally was to not only celebrate the contributions made to our society by women but also to educate attendees about the social, political and economic inequality

women face everyday. The event began with a rally and speeches given by top female community leaders. The march ran through the streets of Downtown San using bullhorns and chants of protest to get their message across. “As a Latina, growing up in San Jose, I am well aware of the discrimination we face. Silicon Valley has let women and girls down”, says Darcie Green, event co-chair, “Women and girls in our Valley still face sexism, pay inequity, violence, poverty and political underrepresentation amongst many other injustices. This is not okay. Our daughters deserve better and we intend to do something about it.” The next Silicon Valley Women’s Equality Day March and Rally will be held on Saturday, August 27, 2016 in East San Jose.

Santa Clara County CALIFORNIA This week County Executive Jeffrey V. Smith, County of Santa Clara announced the appointment of Arcel V. Blume, Ph.D., to the position of Cultural Competency Director for Children Services. Blume who holds a doctorate degree in human development and family studies, has worked for county governments for the past 10 years supporting child welfare systems and the juvenile and adult criminal justice systems in the areas of research and evaluation. For eight of those years, she has worked for Santa Clara County. In her role as Director, Research and Outcome

Measurement with the Santa Clara County Probation Department, Blume leads the development of analytic reports to evaluate the effectiveness of key programmatic interventions and services. These reports track successful completion of services, recidivism, incremental change, and factors that may impact outcome goals. Prior to joining Probation, Blume serves as Evaluation and Planning Manager for the Department of Family and Children’s Services in the Social Services Agency. “We have just begun to get our arms around the issue of the over-representation of children of color in the child welfare and juvenile justice

systems,” said Smith. “Arcel Blume’s experience working for both agencies and her professional research credentials will help to advance the dialogue and shape policy recommendations that produce measurable results.” When Blume worked for the Santa Clara County Social Services Agency for five years, she served as Evaluation Liaison on a large federal grant aimed at reducing lengths of placement episodes and increasing permanency outcomes for African Ancestry children and youths in foster care. She also was responsible for reporting on child welfare outcomes. She also managed special projects with multidisci-

“Together with families, partners, and stakeholders, I look forward to defining, crafting, and implementing a vision with measurable process and outcomes goals that support and enhance children’s and youths’ healthy development and well-being,” said Blume. “I am excited to work collaboratively with community and system partners in coordinated efforts to reduce the disproportionate representation of children of color in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems.” Blume earned her Doctorate Degree and Master’s Degree in Human Development and Family Studies from Pennsylvania State University. Her Doctorate was awarded in August 2004, Master’s Degree in 2000. Blume earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology

A fundraising organization for the underserved and in need, Blvd. Bombs uses the communal family of car club enthusiasts to collect funds, food and clothing for the homeless. This year marks the 7th annual fundraiser, which began and continues to be held at Berryessa Flea Market in San Jose. “Bombs”, or intricately restored Lowrider cars and trucks from the 1920’s through the 1950’s, are part of a prevalent car culture which has its roots here in

the Bay Area. The Martinez’s have long been passionate about these gliding works of art, so it was only natural for their hobby to meet their need to serve their local community. Before the organized Flea Market fundraiser Sylvia Martinez says that the effort began as simply as collecting and giving away clothes and food to the homeless. “We used to go to St James park with tote bags, sleeping bags, gloves, hats, socks, ponchos and fleece blankets.” Additional help came from friends and family, as well as local restaurants that would donate food to take to St James Park. “We wanted to go out there and help the homeless, all we did was take coats. But then it spread, other car clubs began to do that. Thats how

we started, donating coats to the homeless.” These St James Park drives had to end because of the amount of people that were not in critical need coming to claim items meant for those truly without shelter, since there was no criteria to assess who was to receive what. “The last time we did it people were getting out of their cars, calling their bosses saying they we’re going to be late, but theres really people that need sleeping bags to sleep in the streets” she says. After reorganizing and switching to a fundraising event, it has been a great experience for Martinez and her car club family. Now in its 7th year, Blvd. Bombs fundraiser started with a chance inquiry to the Berryessa Flea Market. “We actually started in 2007, but went live in 2008. What happened was Tony said ‘you should call the flea market and ask them if we can do a little get together on a Sunday and have menudo’”. After talking with Flea Market representative Rich Alvari and the Bumb family (owners of the Berryessa Flea Market), the idea to have a car show was thrown around, eventually leading the Martinez’s to establish the first event in 2008. Martinez adds, “we didn’t want to have a car show just for nothing, if we we’re going to have a car show we wanted it to be for a cause.” Boasting some of the most eye-catching cars as well as raffles, children’s activities, folkloric dancers and live music, the yearly event has attracted more and more attendees along with more and

more donations. The busy location allows for curious market attendees to wander into the festivities and become part of the positive fundraiser. “A lot of people there may not know about the car show, but may be out there with the vendors, hear about it and come by. Then some people will make donations to (our) donation box,” says Martinez. Their charitable nature didn’t just stop with coat drives and fundraising. Last

year they donated 100 turkeys to Second Harvest Food Bank, as well as helped in a Veteran homeless shelter and had a toy drive for Toys for Tots Foundation. Martinez adds that they will continue to aide those in need for as long as they can. “I just hope our grandchildren take over and carry this tradition. To help the less fortunate, the homeless, thats our main goal. Thanks to Rich and the Bumb family, this venue has made it bigger, otherwise we’d still be going to St James

Park. The better we do with our shows the more people we can help, and these homeless people really appreciate it.” The 7th annual Blvd Bombs fundraiser will take place September 12th, 2015 from 11:00am - 5:00pm at Berryessa Flea Market. All proceeds directly benefit Second Harvest Food Bank and the homeless. More information available at blvdbombs.com

Suzanne Potter California News Service SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Salmon are safe for now - because a federal judge ruled this week against two Central Valley Water Districts that wanted to stop reservoir water from being released into local rivers. The San Luis and Delta-Mendota Water Authority and Westlands Water District have been suing the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation since 2013 - each year asking for a preliminary injunction to prevent the bureau from releasing water from Trinity Reservoir in Northern California. Jan Hasselman, an attorney from the environmental law firm Earthjustice, said the extra water is crucial to preventing a massive fish kill such as the one in 2002. “In the last few years, that has meant releasing some additional water from Trinity Reservoir in late summer when the chinook are migrating to prevent the disease outbreaks that occur with low-flow high-temperature conditions,” Hasselman said.

The water districts, which serve farming operations in the Central Valley, argue that the bureau decided to release the water from the reservoir without going through the proper channels or doing an Environmental Impact Statement. But the judge said they were not likely to win on the merits of those claims and denied the injunction. Glen Spain, northwest regional director of the Pacific Coast Federation of Fishermen’s Associations, said the drought is forcing the bureau to make hard choices on where to send the water.

“The balance of interests, the judge said, really is in favor of protecting the fisheries,” Spain said. “The Westlands Water District is a junior water rights holder - they’re last in line. What they’re really trying to do is grab water from people who are first in line.” The bureau started releasing the water last week and will continue through mid-September. The water districts now have to decide whether to proceed with their lawsuit. The decision is online at earthjustice.org.

A settlement agreement announced Tuesday ends long-term, indefinite solitary confinement in California prisons. Credit: markrhiggins/iStock

Suzanne Potter CALIFORNIA NEWS SERVICE Up to 2,000 people in solitary confinement will be re-evaluated for release into California’s maximum-security general prison population over the next year - the result of a landmark legal settlement announced Tuesday. A group serving time in the Pelican Bay Secure Housing Unit, some of whom had been in solitary more than 20 years, brought the class-action lawsuit three years ago. They also led several massive hunger strikes to draw attention to their case. Attorney Carol Strickman with the nonprofit group Legal Services for Prisoners With Children, worked on the case and hailed it as a major victory. She called solitary confinement a form of torture. “It is cruel and inhumane,” she said. “It deprives people of human contact. It involves

sensory deprivation and has a devastating impact on people’s mental health and physical health.” The state of California now has agreed to stop putting people in solitary solely for associating with a prison gang, and to limit any one person’s stay in solitary at Pelican Bay to five years. Unions for prison guards have complained that the changes could lead to more prison violence, but Strickman said the Department of Corrections reports few problems with people already moved out of solitary. “Many hundreds of people in the last two years have been transferred,” she said, “and there have been very few serious incidents.” The settlement agreement still needs final approval from the judge, which she said is expected in the next few months. The settlement summary is online at prisonerswithchildren.org.


SEPTEMBER 04-10, 2015

Alberto Hauffen UNIVERSIDAD DE CALIFORNIA La sequía parece estar forzando a un mayor número de animales salvajes, incluso osos negros, a buscar alimento y agua en comunidades suburbanas cercanas a las montañas. Un experto de Extensión Cooperativa de la Universidad de California tiene varios consejos para reducir el riesgo de tener esas visitas no deseadas: “Lo más importante que puede hacer es quitar cualquier posible fuente de alimento; el más común incluye los desperdicios de comida que se ponen en el basurero”, recomienda el especialista en fauna silvestre Roger Baldwin. “Debe colocar los desperdicios en botes a prueba de osos, o simplemente no dejarlos afuera al acceso de ellos”.

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

de humanos pierden el miedo y pueden volverse agresivos, según el Departamento de Pesca y Fauna de California (California Fish and Wildlife - CDFW). Se han reportado docenas de casos de personas gravemente heridas por osos negros; algunas han muerto. Cuando algún oso se muestra agresivo hacia los humanos, el CDFW podría tener que matarlo por razones de seguridad pública.

sentar problemas, particularmente cuando la fruta comienza a madurar”, indicó. “Asegúrese de cosechar lo más que pueda y tan pronto como le sea posible. Eliminando esa atracción puede ayudar mucho en evitar la posibilidad de que los osos lleguen a su traspatio”.

En la temporada veraniega suelen encontrarse osos en comunidades como Monrovia y otras ciudades al pie de las montañas de San Gabriel, en el condado de Los Angeles. En el condado de Kern, el CDFW dijo haber recibido cerca de 1,400 reportes de osos entre junio y diciembre del año pasado.

“Por supuesto, si encuentra un oso en su traspatio, la mejor estrategia es que al verse descubierto, lo deje que se aleje. Pero si se queda allí y usted desea echarlo fuera, haga ruido para espantarlo”, dijo.

Baldwin enfatiza reducir la posibilidad de que los osos y otros animales salvajes se acerquen a las casas.

Normalmente, los osos negros se alimentan principalmente con frutos secos como piñones, bellotas y bayas que producen los árboles típicos de las zonas montañosas. Pero, según Baldwin, esa fuente de alimento se ha visto reducida a causa de la sequía.

“Es particularmente importante en estas condiciones de sequía cuando empezamos a ver osos en estas áreas, no proveerles fuentes de alimento, porque si encuentran comida probablemente se quedarán ahí”, recalca el especialista en fauna silvestre.

“Es bien sabido que la sequía los hace salir de sus áreas naturales y los empuja hacia parajes urbanos”, dijo Baldwin. “Los osos pueden viajar grandes distancias. Simplemente salen de sus áreas naturales y van a lugares donde hay abundantes fuentes de alimento; y eso usualmente es en comunidades residenciales”, explicó.

Eso puede resultar en daños a la propiedad y un riesgo para la seguridad de mascotas y los humanos.

Se calcula que en California hay entre 30,000-35,000 osos negros. La mayoría de ellos viven a lo largo de la Sierra Nevada y las zonas montañosas de San Gabriel y San Bernardino. También se les encuentra en las zonas montañosas costeras, desde el condado de Santa Cruz hasta el condado de San Diego. Los osos que se acostumbran a la presencia

“El problema es que se acostumbran y luego, al volver las lluvias y las fuentes de alimento natural, deciden quedarse ahí porque les resulta más fácil obtener las calorías que necesitan para existir, en vez de tener que buscar el sustento en sus áreas naturales”. Baldwin recomienda no dejar expuesta la comida para mascotas, que resulta apetecible para los osos. Él señala otra fuente de alimento que suele atraerlos a zonas residenciales. “Si tiene árboles frutales o vides, o cualquier planta que produzca fruta, eso podría pre-

Baldwin explica lo que debe hacer en caso de encontrarse con osos en su propiedad.

Típicamente, eso podría bastar para ahuyentar de su propiedad a cualquier animal salvaje. Si eso no da buenos resultados, Baldwin aconseja tomar otra medida. “Si los osos se muestran agresivos y comienzan a acercársele, por supuesto que usted debe entrar a su casa y reportarlos a las autoridades locales”, recomienda. “Pero aun si el oso parece no prestarle atención, debe reportarlo al departamento de Pesca y Fauna de California”. Se aconseja tomar las mismas medidas para mantener alejados a coyotes, que cada vez más se reportan en comunidades urbanas. Al buscar alimento en viviendas, usualmente atacan a mascotas pequeñas y presentan peligros para niños pequeños. “Los coyotes son obviamente un problema mucho más prevalente. Se han habituado en el sur de California, en particular”, señala Baldwin. “Nuevamente, debe eliminarse el acceso a fuentes de alimento para evitar que los coyotes se acostumbren al entorno de los humanos”. La presencia de coyotes que atacan a mascotas, y que también podrían atacar a niños pequeños, en zonas urbanas va en aumento.

“Los coyotes han estado matando a muchas mascotas; y han habido unos cuantos casos de ataques a humanos”, dijo Baldwin. Cada año, se reportan cerca de 450 casos de avistamientos de coyotes en la ciudad de Irvine, y en los últimos dos meses, se reportaron 4 ataques de coyotes a niños pequeños. En el condado de Santa Cruz, el mes pasado se reportó que cinco perros fueron atendidos en un hospital veterinario de Capitola, a causa de mordeduras de coyotes. Entre junio y julio, CDFW recibió siete reportes de coyotes en áreas urbanas de ese condado. “Para evitar que los coyotes se habitúen a la presencia de los humanos, debe hacerse un esfuerzo substancial para eliminarles el acceso a fuentes de alimentos”, recalca Baldwin. “Si logran habituarse, se volverán más problemáticos”. Qué hacer para no atraer a casa coyotes, osos y otros animales salvajes. Esté pendiente de los niños y enséñeles lo que deben hacer si se encuentran con un animal salvaje. Mantenga cubiertos, de manera segura, los desperdicios de comida. No deje expuesta la comida para mascotas. Recoja la fruta que cae de sus árboles. Mantenga limpia la parrilla de asar carne, su olor atrae a los animales. Mantenga las mascotas dentro de la casa después de que obscurezca. Qué hacer si se encuentra con osos Mantenga una distancia prudente. Luego, haga ruido para ahuyentarlos. Repórtelos al Departamento de Pesca y Fauna (CDWF). De ser necesario, llame al 911.

MOVIES

In 2010, the eyes of the world turned to Chile, where 33 miners had been buried alive by the catastrophic explosion and collapse of a 100-yearold gold and copper mine. Over the next 69 days, an international team worked night and day in a desperate attempt to rescue the trapped men as their families and friends, as well as millions of people globally, waited and watched anxiously for any sign of hope. But 200 stories beneath the surface, in the suffocating heat and with tensions rising, provisions—and time—were quickly running out. A story of resilience, personal transformation and triumph of the human spirit, the film takes

The Academy Award-winning team of Alex Henning and Ben Grossman (“Hugo”) supervised the visual effects. The score was composed by Oscar winner James Horner (“Titanic”). “The 33” was filmed on location in Chile’s harshly remote yet stunningly beautiful Atacama desert just kilometers away from where the event took place, and deep within two mines located in central Colombia. “The 33” is slated to open on November 13, 2015 and will be distributed by Warner Bros.

BPT Everyone cherishes a particular independence day. Brazilians celebrate their independence from Portugal September 7 and the Japanese celebrate their independence on February 11. For the Finnish, December 6 marks the day they became independent from Russia in 1917.

Mario Jiménez Castillo EL OBSERVADOR

Adonis:

There’s a risk that you will loose the love of a person with integrity due to your weakness for the attractive physique of a person that will offer you nothing but just a moment of pleasure.

Adultery:

For those married or engaged, this dream means you’ll stop feeling the same for the person you so passionately used to love. For singles, it means that loneliness has become an unbearable mate.

Anus:

After going through a bitter experience that made you doubt the existence of love, soon will come a very special person that will make you forget old disenchantments. Your love life will begin to resurface.

Blood:

In the erotic field, blood is associated with the dreamer’s libido. If you see or have someone else’s blood on you, it presages that you will play with the feelings of someone who will claim vengeance. If you see your clothes stained with blood, an ex wants to see you defeated. A bed stained with blood presages adultery.

Chest:

You think you’re in love and have confused a momentous passion with a feeling that goes beyond a simple sexual attraction.

Dance:

You will live

nights of love, passion and enchantment with your partner. If you dance with strangers it’s a sign you’ll live a sexual adventure so passionate but also brief.

Devil: Sexual pleasures

and lust will monopolize a great part of your thoughts in the coming days. You’ll be swept by the passion and lust for someone who is already taken. You’ll desire to posses a forbidden love.

Drugs:

You believe to be completely in love but it’s only a passing affair like the many you’ve had throughout your life.

Ejaculation:

Someone will try to put you in a tight situation in front of the person you love. You have confided a secret to the least trustworthy person.

Erection:

For a man this presages that he will venture into having sexual relations with several partners. For a woman it foretells that her lover won’t satisfy her anymore.

Eroticism:

When you have erotic dreams often they indicate that the dreamer is going through marked stretch of sexual dissatisfaction due to the suppression of his/her real desires to please others. If the erotic dreams are present occasionally it’s indicative that the dreamer needs frequent sexual relations to feel happy.

Escort Girl:

You will come to the conclusion that the person who swears love to you is only trying to take advantage of you.

Masturbation:

The interpretation of this dream indicates the lack of activity in your sexual life and the few romantic interludes in your love life. There is a great emptiness inside of you and you don’t know how to fill it. If you observe others masturbating, it means you will receive morbid sex proposal. If you experience this dream often, you’ll feel attracted by the subjects of homosexuality and homophobia.

Murder:

Someone close to you has the intention of destroying your current relationship. Unscrupulous people have presented themselves to you pretending to be what they’re not.

Oral Sex:

The symbolism of this dream indicates you feel the desire to satisfy a sexual fantasy you haven’t done yet. If you practice oral sex with a stranger it indicates you’ll be involved in a brief affair. If a stranger gives you oral sex it means you’ll feel passion for someone you used to consider only a friend. If you experience this dream frequently it signals you lack passion in your life and activity in your bed.

In the United States, Independence Day is celebrated July 4, commemorating the colonies’ declared independence from Great Britain in 1776. And while Americans celebrate, they are not the only ones who hold this particular Independence Day dear. Across the world, at the Wildlife SOS elephant rescue center in India, an elephant named Raju celebrated his first year of independence this year on July 4. The party included a jumbo-sized cake for Raju and an anniversary card signed by the staff and other rescue elephants. In addition, the trail the elephants love to walk each day was christened Raju’s Freedom Trail. Although the day was happy, Raju’s past is full of sorrow. Taken from the wild when he was only a baby, he was sold to different owners dozens of times and forced to live as a begging elephant on the streets in India. Malnourished, living on garbage and repeatedly beaten in public, Raju had never known freedom until actions were set in motion one year ago. A glimmer of independence Raju’s path to freedom began when undercover footage of the severe cruelty he suffered was recovered and Forest Department officials began working to obtain a court order transferring Raju to the Elephant Care and Conservation Center. The rescue effort began July 2, 2014, leading to a standoff between Raju’s owner and the Wildlife SOS team. On July 3, at 4 a.m. Raju was finally loaded onto a truck and transported to

the Elephant Care and Conservation Center. Upon his arrival, Raju was backed off the truck and, after a grueling 45 minutes, the last of the chains were finally removed. For the first time in 50 years, Raju was free and he wept as the last chain came loose. Raju’s long road to recovery On July 5, 2014, a full medical inspection was performed on Raju to determine the degree of his suffering and physical disability. Raju’s body was covered with hundreds of wounds, many were years old and had become infected when they were not allowed to heal properly. A diet of garbage had left him malnourished and frail, and a serious wound to his right hind leg caused him to limp badly. Caregivers worked to treat his wounds and started him on a nutrition program, introducing him to new, nourishing foods such as watermelon, jackfruit, bananas, pumpkins, sugar cane and healthy green fodder. Raju gulped them down by the bucket savoring the healthy treats. A year of firsts Since Raju was given freedom, he has enjoyed numerous firsts that were previously denied him. On July 15, 2014, Raju entered a pool for the first time and remained there for hours. On July 28, he was introduced to the Herd of Hope, a group of rescue elephants already living at the center. This allowed him to spend time with his own kind and learn skills denied him

by his capture. “The biggest challenge that Raju faces is simply learning how to be an elephant,” says Steve Koyle, Wildlife SOS volunteer and elephant keeper at the Phoenix Zoo. “He’s been told what to do, beaten and neglected for so many years. Now Raju has the options of swimming, dusting, scratching, foraging and sleeping on big dirt beds under the stars. He now has freedom of choice.” Other elephants are still looking for their freedom By May 5 of this year, veterinarians had determined that 95 percent of Raju’s physical wounds had healed. But while Raju grows stronger every day on the path to recovery, the outlook is not so positive for others of his kind. An estimated 2,000–3,000 elephants remain bound and abused in India every day. Many of these elephants were stolen from their mothers as babies and have been beaten into submission as begging elephants or temple elephants. Every day, Wildlife SOS works to find and save more elephants like Raju in order to show them a better life and free them from cruelty. The sanctuary has 18 elephants now but many more are still suffering across the country. To learn how you can help free elephants suffering in servitude and give them their own independence day, visit Wildlifesos.org or donate to Raju’s Rescue Fund, which will be used to rescue and care for abused elephants in India.

BPT Round up all your old electronics It’s that time of year when millions of students will be shopping for back-to-school and purchasing the latest technology and electronic devices. Many of these popular items like smartphones, tablets and laptops use rechargeable batteries that contain materials that are potentially harmful to the environment and should never be thrown into the trash. As technology advances and new electronics debut, students will replace old gadgets with new and exciting ones. The rechargeable batteries from these old gadgets should be recycled so that they do not end up in landfills. According to the National Retail Federation, back-to-school shoppers will spend an average $212.35 on electronic items, which is a seven percent increase from $199.05 last year, with total spending expected to reach $8.4 billion. The increase in gadgets and electronics in the marketplace is a major contributor to electronic waste. E-waste, or electronic products that have become unwanted or obsolete, is the fastest growing municipal waste stream in America, with more than 49 million tons generated in 2012. Many of the batteries and the products themselves that are replaced or thrown away can be recycled. Call2Recycle, Inc. offers a no-cost recycling solution for the rechargeable batteries found in most types of cordless gadgets and small electronics through partnerships with retailers and municipalities that serve as drop-off locations. During the last 20 years, Call2Recycle has collected more than 100 million pounds of batteries and cellphones, diverting these materials from landfills. The organization ensures that these items are responsibly recycled to create new batteries and other products, preventing potentially hazardous materials from entering the waste stream. Back-to-school shoppers can help reduce waste by recycling their old electronics and rechargeable batteries. Here are some tips to help with recycling during the back-to-school season:

Dust off those shelves and check inside desk drawers and last year’s backpack for items that use rechargeable batteries. If you aren’t sure which items can be recycled, a good rule of thumb is: if it’s rechargeable, it’s recyclable. Call2Recycle’s collection sites accept cellphones and rechargeable batteries (weighing up to 11 pounds), including those you find in laptop computers, digital cameras, two-way radios, MP3 players or iPods, tablets and cordless phones. Locate a collection site near you Call2Recycle has more than 34,000 dropoff locations for recycling rechargeable batteries located within ten miles of 89 percent of consumers across North America. Many of these sites are national retailers such as Sears, Staples, The Home Depot, Best Buy and Lowe’s. Today, recycling rechargeable batteries can be a quick, easy and convenient part of almost any shopping trip. Spread the word It’s more important than ever to educate younger generations about how to properly dispose of rechargeable batteries. Many are unaware that the batteries from their old electronics should be recycled. You can help by educating your friends and family about how they can reduce waste. Another way is to organize a local recycling drive to encourage others to gather up their batteries to be recycled. Through recycling, you can make your community more sustainable and prevent potentially hazardous materials from the waste stream, which is good for people as well as the environment. Recycling batteries is as easy as collecting them and finding the nearest collection site. As you prepare for back-to-school shopping, think of how you can answer the call to recycle.

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com Justin Rossi SPECIAL TO EL OBSERVADOR    The-all important week three of the preseason is now in the books, and we got our first look at extended playing time for the first team offense and defense for both the 49ers and the Raiders. While preseason games are nothing more than a dress rehearsal for the regular season and have no real meaning in the win or loss columns, the third preseason game often gives the most insight into how the team will look come opening day. Both of the Bay Area teams look to be vastly different from a year ago.

49ers:

The 49ers have a new first time head coach in Jim Tomsula and have to deal with the loss of a plethora of players on both the offense and defense. The losses have been notable especially along the offensive line. Colin Kaepernick did not seem to have much time in the pocket in the 49ers exhibition game against the Denver Broncos, where he did not complete a pass until the final minute of the first half. On the other hand, both he and the running backs have been able to run the ball efficiently, but that is not why he spent the summer working with Kurt Warner. Once the regular season starts, we hope to see the passing game in more of a rhythm. The biggest bright spot for the 49ers defense had to be NaVorro Bowman looking to be in regular season form where he notched seven

SEPTEMBER 04-10, 2015 tackles and two sacks. The night ended with a Broncos victory 19-12.

Raiders:

Across the bay, there was another dominant defensive player showing he belongs to be in the conversation of top tier players as well. The Oakland Raiders had their way with the Cardinals first team offense led by second year defensive end/linebacker Khalil Mack who was disruptive in both the running game and passing game. None of the Cardinals offensive lineman had an answer for him, including former Raider left tackle Jared Velheer. The front seven provided pressure all night for Carson Palmer who ended up with two interceptions and the defense gave a glimpse of what could be a much improved unit. On the offensive side of the ball, things were up and down. Derek Carr had a somewhat disappointing day in which he seemed to be inaccurate on multiple throws and ended his night with a pick six on a very ill advised throw. He did make some impact plays to Marcel Reece and standout rookie Amari Cooper. By week 1 the Raiders will try to be more consistent in both the running and passing game. The Raiders game against the Cardinals ended 30-23 with the Cardinals coming out on top. Both Bay Area teams showed some good things but also play that needs to be corrected by the time the regular season starts. Week 1 is just around the corner.
