OPINION

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR Republican Party campaign against Hillary Clinton began years ago when the “Can you trust Hillary?” was first raised, After twenty five years of public service only two matters which keep being brought to the public's attention is: 1) use of a private server for both personal and business emails and 2) That Benghazi, Libya where four foreign service officials were killed by terrorist attacking the American Consulate. Consider that these are the only two issues which conservatives have been able to define and use to diminish her campaign for the U.S Presidency. After twenty five years of public service which included nonprofit organizations which advocated for services needed by women and disadvantaged poor communities, Hillary's record of public service is an open book. Certain conservatives began to say “Hillary was not worthy of your trust”. By repeating that over and over again, it became 'a fact'. That strategy was developed by Nazi's Heinrich

PROPAGANDA AND DIRTY TRICKS IN THIS 2016 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN Himmler who noted that if an non-truthful statement was repeated over and over again, people began to accept that statement as being truthful. That is the primary strategy of propaganda...and today it is being used by conservatives to diminish and demean Hillary's persona and presidential campaign. These ultra-conservative Republican groups have consistently 'gone after' Bill and Hillary Clinton since the 1980's. WHY? For the most part, the Clinton's have tried to deal with the issues and challenges facing the lower middle class, people of color, disadvantaged, and disabled marginalized people. These are the folks who are exploited in a variety of ways by the special interest which are now billionaires...of which Donald Trump claims to be one (his IRS tax submittals have not been made available and probably will not). According to Rachel Maddow (MSNBC, Friday, September 2, 2016, special interests have positioned their dedicated professionals strategically as Campaign Manager, Deputy Campaign Manager, and CEO of Campaigns of the Donald Trump Presidential Campaign

apparatus. A 'hedge fund manager' named David Mercer is allegedly underwriting all this. Since there are only 60 days left in this presidential campaign, it is reasonable to project the beginning of the 'dirtiest unscrupulous political campaign ever' according to Dan Rather, a former Anchor, CBS News, known for his integrity and high ethical standards.

Exodus Baptist Church operates a meeting facility which may be rented out to anyone,,,even Trump's campaign apparatus. A similar deceptive rental of an African American Church facility was scheduled in Detroit, Michigan. Sadly, these 'meetings' were both reported as news by national media which has been giving Trump much prime time coverage. Trump is a master at staying 'in the news'.

The Trump campaign announced “Trump will speak to African American leaders in Philadelphia, PA,” Trump is planning a roundtable discussion with AfricanAmerican leaders at the Greater Exodus Baptist Church on Broad Street at Fairmont (Philadelphia, PA). Its Pastor on vacation in Mexico, The Reverend Herb Lusk said, “It is a huge surprise to me that Donald Trump is going to make an appearance at (my) church.” (Lusk is the former running back, Philadelphia Eagles, who scored the winning touchdown in the Superbowl (1988). Lusk further stated, “I'm not invited, I have nothing to do with this. It seems like it is connected to me, but it is not connected to me. I haven't had a single conversation with Trump...or his people, It's a business arrangement.”

Trump's visit by invitation of Mexican President Nieto was another such happening. That WALL was allegedly discussed, but Nieto says it was only mentioned in passing, but that he assured Trump that Mexico would never pay for it. Purportedly, that wall will keep illegal immigrants from entering America, El Chapo will have a great time burrowing tunnels underneath that wall. But, mainstream media has not examined the perspective that the real purpose of that wall is to keep undocumented immigrants from returning to Mexico. Then, with Trump as the U.S. President, those folks will continue to be the exploited undocumented labor force which has no rights nor legal status. This is 'the best purpose for that wall' and the best reason to not elect Trump as the next

president. The Republican ultraconservatives will not permit reformed immigration laws. Nor will they allow adequate funding which is the main reason the Naturalization services are so far behind in the administration of the naturalization process and management oversight of visas. (No one blames the Federal Government for these existing outcomes). Expect many “hit pieces” of all types; official documents edited to support conservative goals; all types of spinmeistering, etc. Keep in mind that the U.S. Congress is where 'the laws of the land are crafted' following much negotiation and compromise. That is why all those obstructionist members of Congress must not be re-elected. The focus of ultra-conservatives is to have enough power to continue filling their silos with money. They will do anything to continue to foil the democratic governance which does the greatest good for the greatest number. WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO LOSE? A LOT...ESPECIALLY D E M O C R A T I C GOVERNANCE “FOR THE PEOPLE AND BY THE PEOPLE”.

La Recta Final Por José López Zamorano Para La Red Hispana Con la conmemoración esta semana del Día del Trabajo, se pone en marcha la recta final hacia las elecciones del ocho de noviembre. A dos meses de los comicios, las encuestas muestran una carrera más estrecha de lo anticipado entre la candidata presidencial demócrata Hillary Clinton y el candidato presidencial republicano Donald Trump. A diferencia de ciclos electorales, donde tradicionalmente se conoce por anticipado el desenlace en los estados azules (demócratas) o en los rojos (republicanos), en esta elección la situación es muy fluida y muchos estados se encuentran en disputa, especialmente aquellos considerados “campos de batalla” como Ohio, Pensilvania, Florida, Wisconsin, Virginia, Nevada y Colorado. Es claro que en algunos de los estados

más decisivos, la participación de los votantes latinos puede ser crucial para inclinar la balanza y ser decisoria en el desenlace de los comicios, de allí la importancia de que la comunidad hispana traduzca su renovado interés en el proceso político en votos constantes y sonantes. Clarissa Martínez, del Consejo Nacional de la Raza (NCLR), nos comentó en una conversación con La Red Hispana que su grupo y otros han sido testigos de ese interés, que se ha traducido en muchos casos de naturalizaciones de residentes legales permanentes y empadronamientos de aquellos que cumplirán 18 años para el 8 de noviembre. Pero falta mucho camino por recorrer. “Hay más de 12 millones de latinos que son ciudadanos estadounidenses mayores de 18 años que califican para registrarse a votar y no lo han

hecho y cada día 2,700 jóvenes latinos ciudadanos llegan a los 18. Quedan aproximadamente 40 días antes de que se cierre en la mayor parte de los lugares el periodo en que se pude registrar a votar”, advirtió. Si bien la ventana de oportunidad está cerrándose, es evidente que aún hay tiempo para completar el proceso, incluso por teléfono inteligente. El NCLR desarrolló la aplicación “Latinos Vote” para simplificar el proceso para que cualquiera pueda hacerlo en cuestión de minutos. Así que no hay excusa ni pretexto. Encuestas nacionales confirman que, una vez registrados para votar, ocho de cada 10 latinos asisten a las urnas, de allí que el reto es lograr el mayor número de registro de adultos latinos lo más pronto posible, dependiendo del calendario de requisitos del estado de residencia.

En muchos espacios hemos escuchado o leído que la elección actual podría ser una de las más importantes de nuestro tiempo para las minorías. No sólo el tema de la migración ha adquirido un lugar central, sino que los contrastes entre las posiciones de los dos principales candidatos no pueden ser más marcadas. Uno propone deportaciones masivas; la otra, reforma migratoria con ciudadanía. El voto es nuestra voz, y es nuestra responsabilidad mantenernos informados sobre el candidato o candidata que refleje nuestros valores y aspiraciones, de tal manera que cuando acudamos a las urnas el 8 de noviembre, depositemos no sólo una papeleta, sino un voto razonado del tipo de país que queremos y del tipo de futuro que anhelamos para nuestras familias y comunidades.

ESTAFAS AFECTANDO A LOS ESTUDIANTES

Better Business Bureau Los estudiantes a veces sienten invulnerables, pero son más susceptibles a las estafas de lo que piensan. Según una nueva investigación por Better Business Bureau (BBB), 80% de “Generación Y” piensan que las personas mayores de 65 años son más propensos a ser víctimas de estafas. En realidad, los jóvenes son tres veces más propensos que las personas mayores a reportar perdiendo dinero a una estafa. Al fin de agosto de 2016, los estudiantes han reportado más de 1.500 estafas al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB (bbb.org/scamtracker). Cada dólar perdido a un estafador podría ir a la matricula, los libros, o la vivienda, entonces es especialmente importante que los estudiantes sean conscientes de los riegos. BBB aconseja que los estudiantes se familiaricen con las siguientes tres estafas comunes para evitar convertirse en una víctima:

Estafas de empleo son las estafas más reportadas al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB por estudiantes; representan 15% de los informes. Buscando un puesto de trabajo es difícil, así que es fácil para que los estudiantes se emocionan cuando reciben un correo electrónico u oferta de trabajo no solicitada promocionando “experiencia no es necesario”, “trabaja desde casa”, y un gran sueldo. Sin embargo, estos puestos de trabajo son casi siempre demasiado bueno para ser verdad. Considerarla una señal de alerta si usted tiene que pagar por suministros o costos iniciales, el trabajo es recibir cheques o paquetes o cableando dinero, quieren saber su información bancaria, está entrevistado en el vestíbulo de un hotel, o el puesto es “inicio inmediato”. Si un trabajo parece sospechoso, búscalo en línea. Busque todos los empleadores potenciales en bbb.org para determinar su confiabilidad. Estafas de compras en línea son las estafas segundo más reportadas al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB por los estudiantes. Sorprendentemente, desde agosto de 2016, los estudiantes han reportado perdiendo más de $56.000 a esta estafa. Este ocurre cuando usted se ve algo muy deseado en línea por un precio que ve demasiado bueno para ser verdad. Consumidores frecuentemente reportan ordenar artículos en sitios web, pagar por ellos, y nunca recibirlos. Asegúrese de hacer compras únicamente en sitios de confianza. Busque el “https” en la URL y otras marcas de confianza, y busque todos negocios en bbb.org antes de hacer una compra. Ofertas de prueba, aunque técnicamente no son estafas, también pueden engañar a los estudiantes. Frecuentemente, cuando suscribe a una “oferta de prueba”, oculto en la letra pequeña también está suscribirse

a un servicio de suscripción que puede ser costoso y difícil para cancelar. Asegúrese de leer la letra pequeña, especialmente si usted está proporcionando información financiera, y busque el negocio en bbb.org antes de ordenar para ver si otros clientes tenían quejas de ser cobrado excesivamente o dificultades de cancelar. Estafas de alquiler y de compañero de cuarto usualmente aparecen en los sitios web de clasificados, y decenas de estudiantes han reportado esta estafa al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB desde agosto de 2016. Una variación de la estafa de alquiler es la estafa de compañero de piso: si usted publica un anuncio buscando un compañero de piso en Craigslist, sea

SEPTEMBER 9-15, 2016 cauteloso de falsos compañeros que están “fuera del país”, pero pueden proporcionar la renta por adelantado en forma de giro postal. Cuando usted lo recibe, la cantidad es más de la cantidad solicitada; se le pedirá que usted cablea la cantidad en exceso. Por desgracia, el cheque original era falso y usted estará fuera del dinero que ha transferido – ¡y un compañero de piso! Usted debe reunirse con compañeros de cuarto en persona primero, y nunca cablea dinero a un extraño. Otra forma de una estafa de alquiler puede ocurrir cuando los estudiantes busquen un alquiler. Cuidado con las falsos propiedades de alquiler publicados en el Internet y siempre visita un potencial vivienda antes de hacer un depósito.

TOP SCAMS AFFECTING STUDENTS Better Business Bureau Students sometimes feel invulnerable, but they’re more susceptible to scams than they think. According to new research by Better Business Bureau (BBB), 80% of millennials think those over 65 are more likely to be scam victims. In reality, young people are three times more likely than seniors to report losing money to a scam. As of August 2016, students have reported more than 1,500 scams to BBB Scam Tracker (bbb.org/scamtracker). Every dollar lost to a scammer could go to tuition, textbooks or housing, so it’s especially important for students to be aware of the risks. BBB advises that students familiarize themselves with the following three common scams to avoid becoming a victim: 1. Employment scams are the most reported scams to BBB Scam Tracker by students, accounting for 15% of reports. The hunt for a job is daunting, so it’s easy for students to get excited when they receive an unsolicited email or job offer touting “no experience necessary”, “work from home”, and a great salary. However, these jobs are almost always too good to be true. Consider it a red flag if you have to pay for any supplies or upfront costs, will be receiving checks or packages or wiring any money, the job asks for personal banking information, it’s an on-the-spot job offer, you’re interviewed in a hotel lobby or it offers “immediate start”. If a job seems suspicious at all, be smart and search for it online. Look up all potential employers on bbb.org to determine their trustworthiness. 2. Online purchase scams are the secondmost reported scam to BBB Scam Tracker by students. Shockingly, as of August 2016,

students have reported losing more than $56,000 to this scam. This mistake happens when you see a much-wanted item online for a too-good-to-be-true price. Consumers frequently report ordering items from websites, paying for them, and never receiving them. Make sure to only shop on websites you trust. Look for “https” in the URL and other trust marks, and research all businesses at bbb.org before making a purchase. Trial offers, although not technically scams, can also trick students. Often, when signing up for a “trial offer”, hidden in the fine print you’re also signing up for an expensive subscription service which may be difficult to cancel. Make sure to read the fine print, especially if you’re providing financial information, and look up the business at bbb.org before ordering to see if past customers have complaints about difficulties cancelling their trial or being overcharged. 3. Rental and roommate scams usually appear on online classified websites, and dozens of students have reported this scam to BBB Scam Tracker as of August 2016. One variation of the rental scam is the roommate scam: if you post an ad for a roommate on Craigslist, beware of “fake roommates” who are out of the country, but can provide the rent upfront in the form of a money order. When you receive it, the amount is higher than the amount requested; you’re asked to cash it and wire back the rest. Unfortunately, the original check will bounce and you’ll be out of the money you transferred - and a roommate! Meet with roommates in person first and never wire money to a stranger. Another form of a housing scam can occur when students search for housing. Beware of fake rental properties posted online and always visit a potential rental before making any deposits.

COMO LA EDUCACIÓN FINANCIERA ES CRUCIAL PARA LAS LATINAS financiera, se encontró que estas mujeres anotaron 13 puntos porcentuales más bajos que sus pares masculinos. En los EE.UU., en general, las mujeres anotaron 10 puntos porcentuales más bajos que a los hombres en un reciente examen de tres preguntas sobre finanzas básicas llevada a cabo por el Centro de Excelencia de la Educación Financiera en la Universidad George Washington.

Sandhya Kalavacherla Especial Para El Observador Los padres de Arianna Ort mantienen a ella y sus hermana en la oscuridad sobre las finanzas de la familia, pero ellos involucran su hermano en las grandes compras del hogar. "En mi hogar hispano, la responsabilidad financiera siempre ha sido empujada a los hermanos, tíos y padres," la estudiante del área de la bahía dijo en una entrevista telefónica. "A mi hermana y a mi se nos ha enseñado que la finanza es algo que no necesitamos aprender.” Casi la mitad de las niñas encuestadas de entre las edades de 11 a 17 años se sienten incómodas tomar sus propias decisiones financieras, de acuerdo a la investigación 2012 por las Girl Scouts de EE.UU.. Y sólo el 12 por ciento de ellas dicen que se sienten con "mucha confianza" tomar estas decisiones como adultos. De hecho, sólo 17 estados de los Estados Unidos requieren que los estudiantes de la escuela secundaria estudien las finanzas personales, según una encuesta del 2016 por el Consejo para la Educación Económica. Las niñas están perdiendo en la cultura financiera, una tendencia que puede tener consecuencias económicas graves en la vida, como la quiebra y la pobreza, según un estudio publicado en el Journal of Economic Literature. Annamaria Lusardi, fundadora y directora académica del Centro de Excelencia Global de Educación Financiera en la Universidad George Washington, piensa que más adolescentes deben prepararse activamente para las decisiones financieras que se enfrentarán en la vida. En una entrevista con GW Today, dijo Lusardi, "La educación financiera no es adquirida por “aire para respirar.’" LA MISMA BRECHA Un estudio de 2014 de 500 estudiantes universitarios de las tres mejores escuelas en California, llevada acabo por Investing in Her Future, una organización de educación

Un estudio realizado por TIAA-CREF y el Instituto de Educación Financiera Centro de Excelencia Global analizó los hábitos financieros de los jóvenes latinos. Se encontró que sólo el 12 por ciento de los latinos con educación universitaria tiene un gran conocimiento financiero, sólo el 32 por ciento tenía habilidades financieras básicas, y las mujeres latinas tienen la tasa de educación financiera más baja. Estos números fueron más bajos entre los latinos que entre otros grupos. Algunos de los grandes errores financieros que la gente comete, dice Priya Gopalakrishnan, una contadora de Deloitte Tax en Nueva York, implican el uso indebido de tarjetas de crédito, incluyendo pagando sólo la cantidad mínima debida, excediendo excesivamente los límites de crédito, y el uso de los adelantos en efectivo. "Si la educación financiera es poca," dijo en una entrevista de correo electrónico, "las mujeres son menos propensos a invertir y tienen más probabilidad de experimentar dificultades con la deuda." En general, sin embargo, Gopalakrishnan es optimista acerca de que las mujeres tomen más control de su dinero. Ella espera ver la brecha de género de educación financiera disminuir durante las próximas décadas, como resultado del aumento de la conciencia y los esfuerzos de las organizaciones de educación financiera. ATACANDO EL PROBLEMA Si las mujeres aprenden educación financiera como adolescentes, cosecharán los beneficios de sus conocimientos por más tiempo y serán menos propensas a encontrar problemas financieros como adultos. Como consecuencia, algunas mujeres y organizaciones de alfabetización están enfrentando el problema con las niñas. Amanda Deng es una de las tres fundadoras de Investing in Her Future, una organización sin fines de lucro que ofrece clases y recursos libres para aumentar la educación financiera entre las adolescentes en la bahía de San Francisco. Desde su fundación el año pasado, la organización ha atendido a más

de 250 estudiantes, más del 85 por ciento de las cuales son mujeres adolescentes en el área de la bahía. "Inicialmente, el reclutamiento de las adolescentes interesados fue bastante difícil. Sin embargo, una vez que empezamos la articulación de la importancia y el propósito de obtener más conocimientos financieros, ciertamente estamos viendo más interés y participación. Pero sigue siendo un trabajo en progreso," dice Deng. Deng atribuye el éxito de la organización para atraer a su grupo objetivo con "asustar a las niñas con la realidad de su analfabetismo financiero." Durante la publicidad de los eventos de la organización, Deng hace que sea un punto para poner las estadísticas nacionales y locales sobre la brecha de género en conocimientos financieros y las consecuencias potenciales para la familia y la carrera futura de una niña. Deng dice que es la mejor manera de "traer a las chicas de pie y hace que se preocupen por sus futuros."

primera reunión. Al tratar de convencer a las niñas a unirse al club, recuerda que ellas dicen "las finanzas no eran realmente [su] cosa" y que "parecía aburrido y seco." Low reconoce que las finanzas a menudo pueden ser vistas como "poco atractiva" para las niñas. "Es un sector dominado por el sexo masculino. Creo que las mujeres no saben dónde encajan," dice Low. También, hay muchos programas para las mujeres. El Instituto de Progresivo Latino provee recursos financieros para mujeres latinas y les enseña cómo manejar sus presupuestos y ahorrar eficazmente. También, Mujer Avanzando es un programa del Instituto de Progresivo Latino que ayuda a mujeres solteras navegar sus finanzas.

Pero todavía no es fácil convencer a las niñas para llegar a los talleres.

Carrie Schwab-Pomerantz, hija del multimillonario empresario y filántropo Charles Schwab, está tratando de llenar la brecha en la educación financiera con Money Matters: Make it Count, un programa de educación financiera para jóvenes. Desarrollado y patrocinado por la Charles Schwab Foundation y Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Money Matters ha llegado a más de 650.000 jóvenes en los últimos 13 años.

Después de ayudar a iniciar un club de inversión en una escuela secundaria en Pleasanton, California, Valorie Low no se sorprendió al encontrar muy pocas chicas en la

A FOUR-POINT PLAN FOR JOINT HEALTH

Keep on cruising with a regular maintenance schedule for your joints BPT Whether it's a brand-new Bentley or a classic 1970 Mustang, most people have a car they dream about. If they're lucky enough to own it someday, you better believe they're going to take care of it. Regular maintenance is an essential part of keeping a vehicle in tip-top shape. The same is true of the human body, particularly the joints. "Prevention is the only thing that actually prolongs the health of your joints, similar to the care of a machine," says Matt Johnson, health and performance expert and president of On Target

Living. "If you want something to last as long as possible, and to cost as little as possible over the long run, you have to do maintenance, checkups, and change the oil. Taking care of your body is no different. If you do, your joints can last until you're 80, 90, or even 100 without tendon or ligament issues." Johnson notes that joint issues are some of the most common concerns he sees in his practice. These issues can happen at any age, although many start to manifest between the ages of 40 and 50, after years of wear and tear cause pain and inf lammation.

T OP T IPS FOR HE A LTH Y H Y DR AT ION BPT This summer, most of the United States experienced a heat wave that kept many people indoors or in the shade. Very high temperatures, especially for a prolonged period of time, can be extremely dangerous — and not just for the elderly or other vulnerable individuals. Participating in any outdoor activity, especially sports or physical labor, can be risky even for the

SUNDAY- 9:30AM

healthiest among us. Even as the Summer heat dwindles, the key to staying healthy is staying hydrated all through the year. As our bodies try to cool off, we sweat and lose not just the water we need, but something just as important — electrolytes. Electrolytes are made up of sodium and potassium among other elements which need to be replaced. Experienced athletes and runners know the importance of electrolytes, and drink sports drinks like

Johnson's mantra: If you take care of the body it will take care of you. To help people of any age maintain joint health, he provides this four-point joint maintenance plan. 1. Rest The first part of healing the joints is to rest the joints. Massage, meditation, light yoga, stretching, and cool baths are great ways to rest the joints. Additionally, quality sleep each night is essential. (Quick tip: Take an epsom salt bath once a week.) 2. Healing Nutrients Studies show that omega-3 fats can help support joint health by limiting inflammation after exercise and boosting hormones that help the body heal. Take a daily, high-quality omega-3 supplement that has been third-party tested for purity.

Gatorade rather than just water. Replacing water without sufficient sodium can quickly produce hyponatremia, a potentially fatal condition caused by too little sodium in the blood stream. HYPONATREMIA: A REAL THREAT Hyponatremia symptoms are similar to those of heat exhaustion and heat stroke, and are often overlooked. Sometimes people drink more water when they start having these symptoms and end up making their condition worse. Symptoms range from mild to severe and can include nausea, muscle cramps, disorientation, confusion, seizures, coma and death. To avoid this condition, medical experts advise marathon runners to consume extra salt. This advice should also be considered by anyone exposed to excessive heat. There have been several documented cases of illness and even death from hyponatremia over the past several years. According to the British Medical Journal, 16 runners died as a result of too little sodium and overhydration, while another 1,600 became seriously ill. It is true that water intoxication is more commonly seen among extreme athletes, but older individuals are also at high risk for several reasons. AN INCREASED RISK As we age, our kidneys become less efficient at conserving the salt we need when the body is stressed, such as from dehydration and high temperatures. When combined with common medications such as diuretics,

SEPTEMBER 9-15, 2016 3. Superfoods Superfood herbs and spices help the body get maximum nutrients in minimal amounts. For example, curcumin and bromelain are both great for helping joint pain and repair. Remember, limited processing of the product is ideal for optimal absorption. 4. Exercise and body alignment You can't have optimal joint function if the body is out of alignment. There are five key joint checkpoints: ankle, knee, hip, shoulder and neck. This is where you start to achieve perfect posture, after which you can focus on strengthening the large muscles. "The best age is always now," says Johnson. "Start as soon as possible and think about it like you take care of a car or nice jewelry. Joints are meant to last as long as you live. The key is to take care of them with quality nutrition, normal exercise, and adequate rest."

which are commonly prescribed to treat hypertension, the result is a greater risk for hyponatremia. The key lies in finding the proper balance of electrolytes essential for normal function of the cells and organs. Electrolytes help to regulate cardiovascular and neurological functions, fluid balance and oxygen delivery. RECIPE FOR HYDRATION Ideally, anyone engaging in outdoor activity in the heat or even an indoor exercise program should drink eight to 12 ounces of fluid every 15 to 20 minutes during a session. If exercising exceeds an hour, a beverage that contains salt and an energy carbohydrate is far superior to plain water. The recommended concentration of salt in a fluid replacement beverage is a quarter teaspoon per liter. Most sports drinks contain salt, although the amount is not quite that high. Anyone can make an alternative to commercial fluid replacement beverages easily by adding a quarter to a half teaspoon of salt per liter, or 32 ounces of water. When you exercise, your body’s metabolism works at a much higher rate, breaking down and regenerating tissues and creating waste metabolites that need to be flushed out of your system. However, regardless of your level of activity, you still need to maintain good hydration. So remember to always drink plenty of water to beat the heat, but also up your intake of electrolytes, particularly sodium and potassium.

This is your chance to play your own piano concerto in a backdrop of nature. For the third consecutive year Santa Clara County Parks and Recreation is placing five pianos in the most picturesque spots in five County Parks and they're there for your enjoyment beginning September 6 through October 5, 2016. Sunset Piano in partnership with County Parks is continuing to discover how placing pianos in an outdoor environment affects human behavior and spirit. Pianos in public outdoor settings provide musical engagement opportunities for people of all ages to enjoy including some that have never had access to a piano. Pianists of all ages and skill levels from Chopsticks to Chopin can play as long as they wish. You might play in solitude or to an impromptu audience of hikers, bikers and joggers. The pianos can be found in five iconic County Park locations: iconic Vasona Lake under the sycamore tree by the boat rental area, Historic Casa Grande/New Almaden Quicksilver Mining Museum near the lushly renovated garden on the patio deck, Uvas Canyon under the redwoods and near the waterfalls at the outdoor amphitheater, Coyote Lake-Harvey Bear Ranch’s Anglers picnic area looking upon the rolling foothills

and Joseph D. Grant under the stars near the historic Grant house and rose garden. Local schools, musicians, artists, poets, and all other user groups are encouraged to spread the word and share the music of life. Reserve a performance time at no cost by contacting Santa Clara County Parks reservations at 408-355-2201. County Parks extends their sincere thanks to partners Dean Mermell and Mauro ffortissimo of Sunset Piano and DC Pianos of Berkeley, which donated the instruments to make pianos in the parks possible. A Free Community Concert headlined by Sunset Piano will be held on October 2 from 4pm to 6pm at Vasona Lake County Park. Classical, Jazz, and pop selections will delight and entertain audiences with the accompaniment of birds and breezes. More information and a schedule of performers will be posted on the Santa Clara County Parks website www.parkhere.org. Vasona Park has a vehicle entrance fee of $6.00. The Santa Clara County Parks and Recreation Department has provided recreational opportunities, beautiful parks and precious natural resources for Santa Clara County residents for more than 50 years. This golden legacy has resulted in one of the largest regional park systems in the State of California.

SENATE SENDS HOUSING BILL TO GOVERNOR

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Consumer advocates are speaking out after ITT Technical Institute closed all 130 of its for-profit schools on Tuesday September 6, 2016. This includes 15 locations in California, leaving 35,000 students in limbo. The move came after the U.S. Department of Education banned ITT from accepting new students with federal education loans, as did the state Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education and the state Office of Veterans Affairs. Whitney Barkley-Denny, legislative counsel for the nonprofit Center for Responsible Lending, said the closure ultimately is a good thing because ITT's priorities have been questioned for years. "Well, ITT has a long history," she said. "It first really started coming to light in 2012 with the Harkin Report, which showed that ITT was spending enormous amounts of money on CEO salaries and advertising, and not so much money on students and their education."

An urgency bill by State Senator Bob Wieckowski (D-Fremont) to modify the terms of a land sale between the state Department of General Services and the Santa Clara Housing Authority, was approved with strong bipartisan support in the Senate today. Senate Bill 680 will allow an innovative affordable housing project to move forward in the city of Santa Clara. The bill now goes to Governor Brown.   “Affordable housing is badly needed in the Bay Area and Santa Clara is ready to move forward with an important project to give veterans and seniors a home,” said Wieckowski, a member of the Senate’s Transportation and Housing Committee.  “This is an innovative development project with an urban farming component that f its the history of the site as a long-time agricultural research extension center.”   Supporters of the affordable housing agrihood project can urge Governor Brown to sign the bill by adding their names to a Change.org petition at

<w w w.tinyurl.com/scagrihood>. The bill would take effect once it is signed by the Governor.   In 2005, the Santa Clara Redevelopment Agency agreed to purchase the property, which was the former site of the University of California’s Bay Area Research and Extension Center (BAREC). Last fall, the Santa Clara City Council selected the Core Companies to develop the site.  Neighborhood activists spearheaded the push for the agrihood component, an urban farm within the development, to bring together the multi-generational residents who will reside at the site. SB 680 will allow residents, city staff, and The Core Companies suff icient time to design a project that the people of Santa Clara have been working to see for more than 10 years, Santa Clara ViceMayor Teresa O’Neill noted as the bill moved through the Assembly. Senator Wieckowski represents the 10th Senate District, which includes northeast Santa Clara County and southern Alameda County.

ITT TECH CLOSURE "ULTIMATELY PROTECTS STUDENTS" Suzanne Potter California News Service

Sacramento

COMMUNIT Y

Over the years, many students have made complaints that ITT exaggerates both its graduation rates and its ability to place graduates in the job market. ITT has called the government crackdown "unwarranted and unconstitutional." Barkley-Denny said she thinks ITT has been less an educational institution and more of a call center that used a cynical method known as a "pain funnel" to sign people up. "And what they would actually do would be trained to 'find the student's pain' - whether that was, you know, being a single mom, not having enough money for groceries, something like that," she said, "and then use that to recruit the student into the school." ITT charged $26,000 for a two-year associate's degree, Barkley Denny said. Students who are enrolled now or left without a degree in the past four months may be eligible to have their federal loans forgiven, and should contact the U.S. Department of Education at 800-4FEDAID (800-433-3243).

SMOG FROM OIL AND GAS FACILITIES LINKED TO ASTHMA

Suzanne Potter California News Service SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Air pollution from oil and gas facilities in California will cause children an extra 12,000 summertime asthma attacks in 2025 according to a new study from the Clean Air Task Force. Researchers for the "Gasping for Breath" report looked at the EPA's emissions projections and found that by 2025, oil and gas plants will be emitting 20,000 tons of volatile organic compounds per year in the Golden State. Jaclyn Schroeder lives in Porter Ranch, the site of last winter's massive natural gas leak. She and her family had to evacuate their home for four months, causing a great deal of disruption for her 5-year-old son and twin toddler daughters, who have asthma.

Janice Nolen, assistant vice president for national policy at the American Lung Association said that California is working on strict new rules to limit emissions. "As we've looked at it for years, the combination of heat and emissions and their terrain that keeps things trapped so that the ozone's able to cook well can create a big problem with ozone," Nolan said. "And California, fortunately, has been leading the nation in trying to clean up some of those sources." Paul Billings, the senior vice president for advocacy with the American Lung Association, said he supports new methane rules proposed by the federal government limiting natural gas waste from flaring and leaks.

"I'm obviously very concerned if I'm subjecting my children to poison every day," Schroeder said. "I happened to grow up here in Porter Ranch and had asthma as a child. And it's now being passed on to my children."

"Air pollution remains a serious threat to the health of millions of people, and oil and gas extraction is part of the problem," Billings said. "And if EPA takes steps to address regulating existing sources, we can make tremendous progress toward reducing that burden."

The report also found that California children will miss more than 9,000 days of school each year due to ozone smog from oil and gas pollution.

"SMOKE WAVES", & HOW THEY CAN BE HAZARDOUS FOR OUR HEALTH

SEPTEMBER 9-15, 2016

Smoke waves can radiate out for hundreds of miles from wildfires, spreading particulate matter and causing health problems for millions of Americans who think they are safe and far from the fire lines. Credit: Dave Thomas, FlickrCC.

Roddy Scheer & Doug Moss EarthTalk Smoke waves are just what they sound like: huge waves of smoke. Perhaps more dangerous than the fires themselves from which they radiate, smoke waves can cause health problems for people hundreds of miles around. Forest fire flames licking at homes and neighborhoods are always scary, killing dozens of people and causing billions of dollars in property damage across the U.S. every year. But it’s typically the risk from the smoke waves that causes school closures and confines people indoors for days or weeks on end while more frequent and more intense wildfires rage on. What makes smoke waves so dangerous is that they carry particulate matter (tiny dust particles smaller than 2.5 microns) that people can breathe into their lungs where they can cause respiratory problems and aggravate pre-existing medical conditions. Forest fires and other forms of combustion are the main source of these tiny dust particles—so the more forest fires, the more particulate matter risk. Asthmatic children are especially sensitive to smoke waves; hundreds were hospitalized in California this summer during one of the worst fire seasons on record. The elderly, especially those with heart or lung conditions, are also highly vulnerable to pollution from smoke waves. Smoke waves are most severe for those directly under or in the wave, but pollution can travel for hundreds of miles, poisoning the lungs of people nowhere near the actual fire. A recent study of smoke waves across the Western U.S. by researchers from Harvard and Yale universities concluded that climate change “will likely cause smoke waves to be longer, more intense, and more frequent.” They found that between 2004 and 2009, smoke waves affected 57 million Americans— more than 15 percent of the U.S. population.

But even more troubling is their projection for that number to ramp up another 45 percent by mid-century as the planet continues to warm up. That will mean about 13 million more kids and seniors will be impacted by smoke waves compared with today. As the climate changes and most places get hotter and drier, forest fires are projected to increase significantly—and with more fire comes more smoke. Anyone living in fire-prone areas needs to be informed and prepared. Sites like AirNow.gov can give current data on air quality and warn of any dangers from smoke waves or other forms of pollution. If a smoke wave is in your area, stay indoors or wear protective clothing and masking to avoid inhalation. Because smoke waves are a direct result of human-caused global warming, the best way to minimize them is to slow or stop carbon emissions. While slowing or stopping global warming is a global effort, individuals need to do their part too. Do what you can to minimize energy use and waste, upgrade to more efficient cars, appliances, systems, homes and offices, fly and drive less, walk and bike more... But also vote for carbon taxes and other warming mitigation measures and urge your lawmakers to support sustainabilityoriented policy initiatives. If you live in a fireprone area, you’ll be doing yourself and your loved ones a favor.

Protesters demonstrate against the proposed Puente Project power plant in Oxnard earlier this year.(Rene Garcia)

PROPOSED POWER PLANT MAY FACE HIGH-LEVEL OPPOSITION Suzanne Potter California News Service OXNARD, Calif. - A proposed new naturalgas power plant in Southern California faced concerted opposition at the Coastal Commission meeting this week. On Friday September 9, 2016, members took into consideration a recommendation by staff that the Puente Project be relocated away from the site chosen by the company, NRG, in Oxnard, about 50 miles north of Los Angeles. Carmen Ramirez, Oxnard's mayor pro-tem, said her low-income, primarily Hispanic community doesn't want a fourth fossil-fuel power plant to pollute the air and threaten their beaches and wetlands. "No longer should industrial facilities or critical facilities be placed on the California coast, because of sea-level rise," she said. "It also threatens endangered species. So this is the worst place to put it on the beach in terms

of reliability and the damage to the coast." The power plant got a major boost when the California Public Utilities Commission approved it in May despite strenuous local opposition. Ramirez, along with many conservation advocates, was very disappointed with the PUC's decision. "And there's some questions and doubts about its fairness, its impartiality, its service to the public need rather than the needs of private investor-owned utilities, Edison, PG&E and San Diego Gas and Electric," she added. The Coastal Commission staff has recommended that the project be built elsewhere and has identified several other locations. But the final authority rests with the California Energy Commission, which is expected to issue a decision in the spring of next year.

WRITING THE WORLD OF MOANA

ENTERTAINMENT

13

Disney's Jared Bush & Dave Pimentel on the concepts and ideas that make their newest film an experience to behold I loved it so much and I bugged the hell out of them and I said ‘really wanted to stay kind of forever’ and so they allowed me to do that and I became a co-director on Zootopia. As it was ramping down they had changed some of the Moana story and they needed to move pretty quickly. Zootopia was such a scramble my brain was in a scramble so they thought that it would be a good match for me since I was so used to writing with my hair on fire so for me, I was really excited for the setting and the culture probably most of all. It was a part of the world I was really intrigued by and seeing the visuals and being blown away.

Screenwriter Jared Bush and Head of Story Dave Pimentel. Photo Courtesy: Walt Disney Studios

Arturo Hilario El Observador Head of Story Dave Pimentel and Screenwriter Jared Bush have a lot of experience in their respective fields. Pimentel began with the 90's Disney Renaissance, where he worked in animation on such films as Pocahontas and Hunchback of Notre Damn. Bush is most known for writing the hit Zootopia, where he also ended up codirecting. Together, they join the rest of the team of Moana in creating a film based on emotion, heroism and heritage of the Pacific Islands. The following is a Q&A with them about creating the film and working with Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda and legendary Disney duo of animation directors Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Princess and the Frog). Thank you for the interview guys. Could you give us a background on how you ended up in the positions you are now in with the film Moana? DP: I’ve been in the industry over 20 years, in animation, I started here (Disney) a long time

ago, recently been back for almost 5 years now. I came to work on Big Hero 6, directed here by Don Hall and Chris Williams. At the halfway point of working on the film, Ron and Jon, who are old friends of mine from the old days of working here said 'hey we want you to work on this film (Moana)' so I was like, ‘but I’m busy!’. They said ‘well we want you to work on it, and we want you to be the head of story,’ which means it’s a higher title so to speak, more responsibility, and I found that extremely, extremely fascinating. This project was prime for the kind of movie I want to make, which is a great character, leading, finding her way, coming of age, and traveling across the South Pacific Ocean. And also the demigod Maui, I thought this was going to be huge. And so I asked the blessing of my previous crew to allow me to go and they said ‘go for it’. JB: So i’ve been a writer for about 15 years, and mainly I was in live action before this, about 5 years ago I got hired to write Zootopia and that was the first real entry into animation for me and I loved it. About 2 years into that, usually writers are contracted, and they come in and finish their project and leave but

Coming from Zootopia you had a strong female lead heroic character, non romantic story. That was also I was really excited about, I like telling stories like that. To come in when Moana is being pushed into this hero's journey direction felt really great. Also for me it having a lot of music in it. I was always in bands growing up and was a trombone player and in jazz bands, classical as well, loved musicals. And when I was in college I had to make this choice, am I going to try and be a writer or am I going to be a musician. There was sort of this crossroads and I went with writing. But then when Moana came around with all the music in it I got to kinda do both which I thought was something I’d never be able to do. And to work with Ron and Jon who are legends in musicals and Lin Manuel, to have that opportunity right as Hamilton is blowing up, everything is hitting at exactly the right time. Okay, there's a lot of research and emphasis on the culture and it's music. Can you touch on the music aspect of the film? DP: It’s one of those films, that has the flavor and culture similar to The Lion King. That was another thing. A) Ron and Jon are legends of Disney heritage, and you gotta work with them if they ask you, and B) the music was so intense, Opetaia Foa‘i, Mark Mancina and Lin-Manuel Miranda on the show as a trio was like, it’s heaven, it’s wonderful. And he came on way before Hamilton released. So, we had him before! JB: I know that the big voyaging song, that song was sort of the celebration of the culture and it came less from writing out those specific events as far as I’m aware. As the story progressed songs had a lot of character and story content. That was something where we here had to really know what the story needed to be and what we wanted the characters head space and psychology to be and once we had that down. Typically Lin and I would bat back and forth, I would actually write a version of the scene as if it was going to be spoken dialogue and then

give that to Lin. who would then interpret it however he wished. At least we knew we wanted to get this amount of plot across, how Moana was feeling. Typically in this movie we want the songs to progress the plot as well so you’re not just hitting the pause button, and the song is over now the movie can continue it’s always better for those songs to push the story along. DP: If it allowed us screen time to do a musical moment we wouldn’t have to spend that time in dialogue or just watching the characters go through story points where we can fit it in economically with some beautiful music, we’d be in better shape. “We Know the Way”, the ancestor song was at the beginning of the movie for years. So Lin and Opetaia had written it as a celebration song, it was just a really true culmination of their first meeting, they were really celebrating the culture. What were some of the challenges you faced while brining the story of Moana to life? DP: To me it’s just honing in on a smart, energetic character and really getting Moana to be the best that she can be, it just takes time. We have the luxury of 9-12 screenings to really find her heart, her want and her journey and really making it as powerful as we can. That to me has been one of those very specific things in the movie that we needed to find. Jared was really huge for that when he came on, everything really started to click and lock into place and really get us where we needed to go, that’s how I feel about it. JB: I’d say to me one of the biggest challenges is that this movie is really simple, it’s really two characters (Moana and The demigod Maui) on a boat together for a majority of the movie. Just from a writing standpoint, Zootopia had hundreds of animals in this big city, gags everywhere. In this movie there’s two characters and their relationship and their personalities have to be engaging enough that we the audience will want to watch 90 minutes of these two. That’s a huge challenge but when we as a group find those gems, none of those come for free, those are all hard fought bits of entertainment, bits of emotion, and when we find them and it is compelling then you know you’ve found something special. DP: This is an oral culture, they had no books, no written word, there’s no signs, no iPhones to tell the story. It’s just really getting down to the heart and root of characters and their emotions and how they feel and what they’re going through and what their journey is about set in the time it’s set.

Quinto Ott & The Phantom of the Opera

Quinto Ott doing his makeup for his character Don Attilio.

Arturo Hilario El Observador Recently we had the opportunity to speak with Quinto Ott, a performer with the touring Broadway show The Phantom of the Opera, which arrives in San Jose September 15 through October 2 at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts. If you’ve ever had an interest in the inner workings of this revitalized classic, keep reading for a look into Ott's experience with working in the musical and its resonating themes. How and when did you get into the arts? My mom talks about when I was little I would keep telling her that I really wanted to do was sing. Both of my parents were teachers so they were really always wonderful about supporting me and helping me achieve my goals. I started doing musical theater and classical music in the 7th grade, started studying classical music then. I went to Indiana University, I was in the Jacobs School of Music there and was also simultaneously getting a degree in Musical Theater and so I worked at regional theaters and did opera work. The whole gamut, as much as possible. In the fall I auditioned for a repertory company which does the work of Gilbert & Sullivan. I became a company member with them in 2009. I worked with them for a long time while also doing some opera work. I then was singing at the Music Academy of the West, which is an intense training program for young professionals in Santa Barbara. While I was there I sent in a video for Phantom, so I sort of jumped from opera work to musical theater, and I’ve been here since 2013. Tell me what it's like coming from a background of both opera and musical theater. Historically opera and theater were more separated art forms and functioned in their own worlds, more and more there was a crossover.

I’m sort of fortunate being active in this period of history, I’ve been able to straddle both of those a little bit. In terms of the storytelling and the skills that I’ve gotten and then also my vocal experience. The classical world of training has allowed me to navigate some music that would otherwise be difficult in the musical theater world. I feel lucky to have dabbled in both worlds and work in them simultaneously. How would you define The Phantom of the Opera? I think at the core of it is a love triangle, one young woman’s journey, finding herself in terms of how she relates to the world and also where she draws her strength from in her heart and the relationships in her life. Christine Daae is a ballet dancer whose sort of thrust into the world of the opera house because of the patronage of both Raol, her childhood lover and the Phantom, whose the artistic genius whose obsessed with her. It’s the struggle of her deciding how to deal with rival affections and the crazy tumultuous world of being a superstar performer while trying to maintain some sort of humanity. Tell me about one of your characters, Don Attilio I’m in the men’s ensemble, so I have a few roles but my principal role is Don Attilio. The story itself takes place in the Paris Opera House and throughout the course of the story there are moments where there are scenes that happen on stage. They’re not real operas but they are constructed in the musical to show what’s going on stage. One of those operas is a baroque style opera called Il Muto (The Mute) about a noblewoman whose married to an older guy and who's in love with someone else. I play the older guy and have a brief scene with Carlotta and we have a dueling singing moment and it’s very comic. Why should this production be one not to miss? The Phantom is an amazing show and it is one one that is very unique in the world of musical theater because not only is the story a classic and the music is iconic it has a great sweeping score

and the production value is spectacular, one of the largest touring productions in the country. There’s also something for everybody. We have great actors and storytellers and opera singers and ballet. You get the wide spectrum of all the different styles of performance.So if you come to the show you are treated to a smorgasbord of everything that the arts has to offer. The original production is incredible but there has been a lot of development in the technical aspects of the theater in the last 30 years, so this new production has been able to utilize some

of those technical evolutions and give it sort of a ‘facelift’ and readapt the classic story that will make people fall in love with it all over again. Quinto Ott and The Phantom of the Opera are in San Jose September 15 through October 2 at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts. For more info and tickets please visit <broadwaysanjose.com>.

FRANCISCO JIMÉNEZ TO RECEIVE STEINBECK AWARD

"I thank Francisco Jimenez for honoring all brave children who grow up poor in America." Sandra Cisneros, author of The House on Mango Street 7:30pm (doors open at 7pm) on Wednesday, September 28, in the Student Union Theater at San José State University. A highlight of the university's celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, the event will feature a conversation between Jiménez and Chicano political cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz. Proceeds from the event benefit SJSU’s Cesar Chavez Center for Community Action. Camino Arts, a non-profit arts initiative, is a pro bono co-producer of this event. Tickets ($20 general / $10 student) are available at the Event Center Box Office (408-924-6333) or at ticketmaster.com. Francisco Jiménez SJSU SAN JOSE, CA - Educator, author, and advocate for social justice Francisco Jiménez will receive the John Steinbeck Award at

Like the Joad family in Steinbeck’s novel The Grapes of Wrath, the Jiménez family came to California looking for a better life but found mostly hardship and struggle. Born in Mexico in 1943, Jiménez spent much of his childhood

moving around California with no permanent home or regular schooling. Against incredible odds he went on to earn a Ph.D. and become a professor at his alma mater, Santa Clara University. His accolades include the CASE/ Carnegie Foundation Professor of the Year in 2002. Jiménez first read Steinbeck as a sophomore in high school. “The Grapes of Wrath made a profound difference in my life and writing,” he says. “I identified with the Joad family. Their experiences were like my own family’s. For the first time I had read something in school to which I could relate.” Years later he decided to turn Steinbeck upside down, telling a migrant family’s story from the perspective of the family itself. At his family’s urging, he began working on a book about his childhood and in 1997 published The Circuit: Stories from the Life of a Migrant Child (Spanish title: Cajas de cartón). The Circuit won numerous awards, including the Americas Award for Children's and Young Adult Literature. Jiménez went on to publish three more books for young readers: Breaking Through (2002), Reaching Out (2008), and Taking Hold (2015), all with Spanish

translations. Widely read in schools, Jiménez’s books have given voice to families like his and introduced a generation of American children to the plight of migrant laborers in our country. In vivid language, Jiménez highlights the humanity and strength that exist in the face of poverty and discrimination. Explaining the selection, Nick Taylor, Director of the Cox Center for Steinbeck Studies said, “The story of the Jiménez family is timely, but it is also timeless. Steinbeck was calling our attention to migrant laborers eighty years ago. Jiménez reaches audiences even Steinbeck couldn’t reach. In his life and his work, he embodies everything that Steinbeck hoped was possible in America.” The John Steinbeck Award is sanctioned by the Steinbeck estate and is offered by the Martha Heasley Cox Center for Steinbeck Studies at San José State University. The award is presented to artists and activists whose work exemplifies the spirit of Steinbeck's social engagement. Past recipients include musician Bruce Springsteen, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, filmmaker Ken Burns, and United Farm Workers co-founder Dolores Huerta.

SIGNIFICADO DE LOS COLORES EN LOS SUEÑOS Mario Jiménez Castillo El Observador ACUA: Si sueña con este color augura una merecida vacación, un tiempo de descanso en la que el soñador recuperará toda la energía que en días anteriores sintió mermada. Llegan tiempos mejores después de una etapa marcada por preocupaciones económicas. AMARILLO: Inicio de un nuevo ciclo en la vida del soñador. Es preciso dejar atrás el pasado y los recuerdos turbulentos. Nuevas ilusiones se harán presentes. Todo es posible si se alimenta diariamente el optimismo y si no decaen la fe y esperanza. ANARANJADO: Grandes oportunidades. Aproveche lo que le está sucediendo. La rueda de la fortuna comenzará a girar a su favor. También augura una época festiva llena de grandes novedades. Un tono muy encendido puede indicar abuso de placeres. AZUL: Tranquilidad, armonía, seguridad en el trabajo. El color azul es además un indicio de paz y unión familiar. Cuando se sueña con el color azul constantemente es agüero que necesita renovar su energía física y espiritual en el mar o en las aguas de un lago. BLANCO: Predice buena salud, pureza, protección y cumplimiento de una promesa. También es un símbolo de recuperación para los que sufren un mal ya sea físico, emocional o espiritual. Soñar personas conocidas usando prendas blancas es augurio que puede confiar en ellas y si no las conoce presagia que nuevos conocidos le serán de gran ayuda. CAFÉ: Predice que será escuchada su petición. Favor que será otorgado. El color café es uno de los colores que representa al planeta tierra y su presencia durante el sueño le hace una solicitud y un llamado al soñador para que proteja el medio ambiente y se oponga a la crueldad que sufren los animales. CELESTE: El color celeste en los sueños ref leja todo el caudal de nuestros deseos, dependiendo el tono así indicará si nuestros esfuerzos son suficientes para alcanzar las metas propuestas. Un tono muy opaco le advierte al soñador que no se duerma en sus laureles porque deja todo en manos del destino.

GRIS: Señala la necesidad de un cambio en el estilo de vida del soñador. El color gris está ligado en muchas ocasiones a lapsos depresivos y a la convalecencia de enfermedades prolongadas. Cuando se sueña este color continuamente, aduce que se viene arrastrando un sentimiento de culpa que no le deja ser feliz. NEGRO: Sea más positivo consigo mismo. El aislamiento no es la solución. Infortunio. El color negro ref leja en diversas ocasiones: sentimientos de venganza, avaricia y deseos mal sanos. Ocasionalmente puede prevenir al soñador que está a un paso de involucrarse en actividades ilícitas. Si sueña muy a menudo el color negro es señal que lleva una vida demasiado solitaria. ROJO: Recuperación, termino de una convalecencia, pasión. El color rojo desde siempre se ha asociado a las relaciones sexuales placenteras. Un tono muy encendido predice que se vivirán pasiones incontrolables y hasta prohibidas. Asimismo se le asocia a la sangre y si observa en el sueño un tono muy tenue, es indicio que precisará una consulta médica. ROSADO: Encuentro del amor, amigo verdadero, sentimientos nobles. Si sueña a sus amigos rodeados por el color rosa quiere decir que éstos son sinceros y desean su bienestar. Si ha de cambiar de domicilio, iniciar un nuevo trabajo o hacer un viaje y en fechas anteriores aparece en el sueño este color, es indicativo que todo marchará sobre ruedas. VERDE: Solución de problemas económicos, ganancias, tiempo de buena fortuna. El color verde está directamente asociado con el dinero y las posesiones, cuando se presenta en el sueño es augurio de buenas nuevas en el sector financiero, del mismo modo le aconseja al soñador a ser un protector del ecosistema. Cuando el verde se presenta en tonos exagerados es indicio que quien sueña padece una ambición desmedida. VIOLETA: Espiritualidad, está siendo protegido por su ángel guardián. Recuperación de lo que parecía perdido. La vibración del color violeta ref leja en el sueño altos grados de conciencia y honestidad. A la vez se relaciona a mensajes telepáticos. Soñar con una llama violeta indica el preámbulo a la comunicación con un ente espiritual durante la vigilia.

EARTHQUAKES TO SIGN COLE BAKER AHEAD OF SEATTLE MATCH Earthquakes honor Childhood Cancer Awareness Month on Saturday interim general manager Chris Leitch as he pens a one-day contract.

Earthquakes/SAN JOSE The San Jose Earthquakes will welcome Cole Baker to the squad for the Sept. 10 match against Seattle Sounders FC, set to kick off at 7:30 p.m. Baker will serve as the honorary captain for the Quakes as they look to move up in the standings in the Western Conference. Baker, 11, enjoys sports, including baseball, soccer and tennis, and is ranked at the top of his class academically. In 2011, he was diagnosed with stage IV neuroblastoma and has undergone multiple treatments, phase I studies and surgeries. As the honorary captain, Baker will arrive at Avaya Stadium on Friday, Sept. 9 to meet the Earthquakes players, attend practice and eat lunch with some of his future teammates. On Saturday, Baker will become the first team signing under

Following the contract agreement, Baker will be available to media for comment, sporting full Quakes gear and will help as a scooper at the A&W Celebrity Root Beer Float event on Saturday night. Baker will then attend pregame warm-ups, execute the game's honorary first kick, greet his teammates as they walk out of the players tunnel, stand with captain Chris Wondolowski for the national anthem, participate in the team handshakes and appear in the starting XI photo. Saturday's event comes in part with a league-wide initiative to raise funds and awareness for cancer research, as September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. The Quakes have joined forces with the Austen Everett Foundation to give Baker this once in a lifetime experience. The founder, Austen Everett, was engaged to former Earthquakes forward Matt Luzunaris who played for the team in 2011. Everett was a Division I goalkeeper at Miami when she was diagnosed with NonHodgkin's lymphoma in 2008. She started the Austen Everett Foundation, which works to inspire, empower and improve the lives of kids battling cancer by uniting them with professional and collegiate athletic organizations. Austen passed away in 2012, but her legacy continues with the Austen Everett Foundation for this honorary captain experience.

través de tres días con un elenco cuyas edades varían de entre los 8 y los 85 años

¿Cuál ha sido la parte más divertida de este proyecto?

Dentro de los artistas más sobresalientes se encuentra Alejandra Leon, quien vive en Oakland, donde estudia su maestría en Bellas Artes y Danza en la Universidad de San Francisco State. Alejandra, quien está obsesionada con Gene Kelley y la era de los 1940s, espera algún día poder resucitar su amor del teatro en vivo con su propia compañía en Oakland. Como una de las estrellas Latinas del elenco, Alejandra se tomó el tiempo de charlar con El Observador y contestar algunas preguntas acerca de esta obra tan emocionante y sobre su papel.

¡Oh, pues que me toca interpretar a una paloma! ¿Cuándo volveré a tener la oportunidad de actuar como un ave humana con una gran directora apoyándonos? ¿Entendemos que vives en Oakland, estudias en San Francisco, pero trabajas por todo el Bay Area, es correcto?

¿Cuál es tu papel en The Conference of the Birds?

¿Te consideras una persona espiritual?

Mi papel es el de Dove (La Paloma), a quien decidí nombrar Marie Dove (Maria La Paloma). ¿Desde cuándo estudias teatro y danza?

La Conferencia De Las Aves Ha Sido Re-Imaginada Este fin de semana de septiembre 9 -11, quince actores y cantantes en conjunto con treinta bailarines, transportarán a su público en un viaje épico con su interpretación de The Conference of the Birds (La Conferencia de las Aves) en el Mexican Heritage Plaza. La galardonada obra de teatro y danza – basada en un antiguo poema Sufi – cuenta la historia mística de cuando las aves del mundo deciden reunirse para buscar entre ellos un rey. Los productores y el director decidieron crear una interpretación contemporánea que celebra

la espiritualidad de la obra original, y al mismo tiempo reúne artistas de las diversas culturas que se reflejan en la composición de Silicon Valley. “Es una celebración del Bay Area en el que vivimos hoy en dia”, comentan la directora Vinita Sud Belani y la productora Ushsa Srinivasan. Destacándose por sus emocionantes bailes y bellos vestuarios de los mundos del ballet, danza clásica hindú, china, -- al igual que folclórico, azteca, y hasta hula -- The Conference of the Birds será presentada en cuatro funciones a

Si, vivo en Oakland, estudio en San Francisco, y trabajo donde puedo. Siempre sigo al arte, y si el arte me lleva a lugares diferentes, pues me dejo llevar. ¡Bueno, siempre y cuando tenga un método de transporte!

Empecé a actuar cuando tenía alrededor de 12 años. En ese entonces estudiaba en una escuela pública que no ofrecía las clases optativas disponibles en otras escuelas más grandes. Entonces, una organización llamada Opera Piccola llego a la escuela buscando a niños con interés en el teatro. En cuanto al baile, empecé con clases de baile de salón a los 5 años ¿Cuál es tu película preferida de Gene Kelly? Wow... difícil de contestar. ¡Me encantan todas sus películas! Pero, pienso que si tuviera que escoger una seria The Pirate (El Pirata). Todas sus películas destacan sus espectaculares pasos de baile, pero en esta en especial, Gene Kelley pudo mostrar la gran habilidad atlética que hacía de su estilo de baile tan singular. ¿Cuál ha sido el reto más importante de tu papel en The Conference of the Birds? La parte más difícil de mi papel, ha sido el tener que incorporar ballet dentro de mi rol como paloma. Este es un estilo que nunca había estudiado antes, así es que me he dedicado a aprender cómo ser un poco más graciosa y parecida a las aves al mismo tiempo. ¡Si, ha sido un poco difícil!

Si me considero una persona espiritual. Mi madre nos educó como católicos y bueno con la edad me di cuenta que lo que más importa es que vivas, dejes vivir y creas en algo. Porque tiene que existir algo más grande que nosotros mismos. ¿Que opinas de los elementos espirituales de The Conference of the Birds y el tema de ver dentro de nosotros mismos? Pienso que The Conference of The Birds representa lo que muchos seres humanos han perdido en los últimos tiempos, el respeto por el prójimo, seas o no una persona espiritual. Hay mucha gente que es áspera, grosera, racista, inconsiderada, pero al final todos somos iguales. Todos sangramos rojo y nos convertimos en polvo por igual. ¿Así es que porque nos guardamos tanto odio? Pienso que la obra resonará en muchos y los hará pensar en quienes son realmente por dentro. ¿Qué?: The Conference of the Birds ¿Cuándo?: Septiembre 9 a las 8pm; Septiembre 10 a las 2pm y 8pm; Septiembre 11 a las 4pm ¿Dónde?: Mexican Heritage Plaza, 1700 Alum Rock Avenue, San Jose CA Boletos desde $25-$100 con descuentos de pre-venta, grupo, bloque y para estudiantes en todos los niveles <https://www.tikkl.com/cob/ campaigns/cob-tickets>.
