OPINION

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

USING YOUR PERSONNAL VALUES IS IMPORTANT

values which I hope we all still have and use in our daily lives. These values are:

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR I have known Esther Talavera since the 1970's when she was a Latino community leader in San Mateo County and a delegate to many Democratic National Conventions. She was the leader of a Latino group which successfully established 'Our Lady of Guadalupe Health Center' in the abandoned Daly City Hall. In one of our recent conversations, she said, “You know that we thought we were changing things for the better then, but today things are worse because I never hear about ideals and developments which benefit the community. I love politics, but today I am totally confused by what is going on. Candidates are trashing each other. Donald Trump is especially good at that, especially when he lies.” Our discussion led to my creating a list of personal

1)TRUSTWORTHINESS; 2) RESPECT; 3) FAIRNESS; 4) COMPASSION; 5) RESPONSIBILITY; 6) ACCOUNTABLITY; 9) LOYALTY ; 10) THE PRACTICE OF COMMUNITY STEWARDSHIP. I would ask you to read the U.S. Constitution to learn how many of these 'personal values' are included in the ideals embedded in that document created by the Founding Fathers and agreed upon in 1776. Our democratic sovereignty was created then and 'We,the People' agreed to live under the 'rule of law'. During the 240 years of American sovereignty, America has become the nation wherein an individual can rise to any level of society and economic wealth as an outcome of one's own merit and capabilities. Yet since 1975 most jobs created have not provided a living wage and the middle class incomes have been stagnant.

Businesses, especially multinational corporations such as Apple, have used loopholes to avoid payment of their fair share of taxes. The current corporate tax rate is 35%. Apple has not repatriated $231.5 billion, which keeps 35% (est. $82 billion) from the U.S. Treasury (Source: Robert Reich, “Congress....Disregard Tax Amnesty; Make Apple Pay”, S.F.Chronicle, Insight, p.E8, 09.18.16). Reich writes, “Apple is one of America's biggest tax cheats”, along with other multinational firms such as Big Pharmas, Big Tech, Big Franchisers, and others who practice tax avoidance. My point is that their executives are not living up to the ideals and values that makes America great. What results is a big scam... and American taxpayers bear the brunt of those actions which do not take into account community stewardship issues. Where is corporate integrity? What frightens me the most is the information, exposed by Eugene Robinson (To Beat Trump, Stick to Basics, Mercury News, p A18, 09.18.16) which ties Trump's

business to a bank in Iceland which is funded by Russia! According to other reports, some 500 Trump businesses are offshore and many deal with dictatorships. Could this be the basis of why Trump will not reveal his IRS Tax Returns? Where is his integrity and transparency? In contrast, Hillary Clinton's financial involvements are an open book. I would trust Hillary much more than Trump with the future of America.

The Latino vote is being courted by both Republicans and Democrats. Time Magazine (dated 09.26.16) has an article titled “How Latinos Drive America's Economic Growth”, which reveals that America's 55 million Latinos have $1.3 Trillion in buying power. My concern is how much of that economic activity is left in the Latino Community? Latinos are projected to buy 52% of homes during 2010-2030; purchase one in four Toyota Corollas; and launch 47% of new small businesses. It is essential that the Latino community have representatives at all conference tables where decisions are made about

who benefits, who gets trained, who gets informed, hired? Fired? For too long, Latinos have been viewed as 'consumer units', or labor to be exploited without being paid what is really merited and earned. Using your personal values every day is important. It is time Latinos realize that they can no longer be stoic or passive. Latinos are impacted by all that goes on in this nation. Latinos must not be focused just upon IRS Tax Reform, Immigration Reform, access to education and training etc.....those are all issues which, like Trump's WALL, are used as diversions from basic issues of integrity, fairness, honesty, stewardship, etc. We Latinos can no longer be on the sidelines with our voting power. What good is your vote if you decide not to use it? Realize that you are helping the 'other side' when you do not vote. Realize that your personal values are implicitly expressed when you do vote. Your vote is important and will count in our American Democracy, especially this election year.

El llamado de la naturaleza Por José López Zamorano Para La Red Hispana Es común afirmar que los latinos tenemos una inclinación natural por la preservación de la naturaleza y por la participación en actividades recreativas al aire libre. Y es verdad, los hispanos hemos tenido desde tiempos ancestrales una conexión especial con el medio ambiente, producto de nuestras creencias, tradiciones y cultura. Encuestas realizadas en Estados Unidos confirman que los latinos viajamos al extranjero cargados con esas tradiciones en el equipaje, aun cuando una proporción de nosotros no tenga las herramientas, los recursos o el conocimiento para realizar un involucramiento más activo en la conservación ambiental. Por ejemplo, un 85 por ciento de los latinos que residen en Estados

Unidos cree que es “extremadamente importante” reducir la polución y utilizar fuentes alternas de energía, como la solar y eólica, además de promover esfuerzos para la preservación del agua, según un sondeo realizado por Latino Decisions. Es también revelador que 8 de cada 10 latinos consideran sumamente importante proteger la vida silvestre de Estados Unidos, las tierras públicas y las especies en peligro de extinción. Una proporción similar apoya el establecimiento de estándares nacionales para el aire limpio, la prevención del calentamiento global y el cambio climático Por eso me surge la interrogante si los latinos estamos ejerciendo, usando, aprovechando, gozando los parques y bosques nacionales en una manera no sólo que refleje nuestras raíces y nuestros valores, sino que permita trasmitir esos valores a nuestros hijos, en momentos

que el uso de las tecnologías y las redes sociales parece alejarlos de los espacios abiertos. Es una reflexión que surge con motivo de la conmemoración inminente del Día Nacional de Tierras Públicas el 24 de septiembre, el mayor esfuerzo nacional de un sólo día de trabajo voluntario en las tierras públicas, que por cierto representan una tercera parte del territorio nacional.

perfección la filosofía de que todos somos una unidad de vida y que el ser humano no se explica separado de la naturaleza: “Tierra es mi cuerpo, agua es mi sangre, viento es mi aliento y fuego mi espíritu”. Esa canción refleja un compromiso profundo con la naturaleza: la idea elemental de que las tierras están bajo nuestra responsabilidad.

El lema de la campaña no sólo es acertado, sino más oportuno que nunca en esta era digital: reconectar con la naturaleza, descubriendo un bosque cerca de nosotros, un sendero, una playa, un paraje especial capaz de convertirse en un recuerdo para toda la vida.

El Día Nacional de Tierras Públicas es una inmejorable oportunidad de conectarnos y reconectarnos como familias con los bosques, parques y espacios naturales no sólo con fines recreativos, educativos o de salud, sino para renovar las más profundas de nuestras tradiciones y transmitirlas a nuestros hijos.

Me hace recordar las palabras de una experta en medicina tradicional, Toñita González, quien rememoraba una canción típica mexicana que describe a la

EVERY 28 HOURS

a series of one-minute plays inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.), Berkeley Repertory Theatre, and FaultLine Theater announced this week a series of events celebrating Every 28 Hours, a series of oneminute plays inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement from 90 contributing artists. A.C.T. and Berkeley Repertory Theatre will present two one-day festivals, including excerpts from Every 28 Hours and performances by local artists, on October 18 and 19, 2016. Faultline Theater—in collaboration with A.C.T., Campo Santo, Crowded Fire Theater, and Lorraine Hansberry Theatre—will produce a full production of Every 28 Hours October 21–November 12, 2016. All performances are free and open to the public. Each event will be followed by discussions led by local activists and artists. Co-created by Dominic D’Andrea of the One-Minute Play Festival and Claudia Alick of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Every

28 Hours is a national partnership focused on the widely shared and contested statistic that a black person is killed every 28 hours by a vigilante, security guard, or the police in the United States. Every 28 Hours consists of 75 one-minute plays inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, with participation from artists across the nation.

These events will be held on the following evenings: ONE-DAY FESTIVALS Tuesday, October 18, at 7 p.m. The Rueff at A.C.T.’s Strand Theater 1127 Market Street San Francisco, CA 94103 RSVP to <education@act-sf.org> Wednesday, October 19, at 7 p.m. Berkeley Rep’s Osher Studio 2055 Center Street Berkeley, CA 94704

The New York Times said, “The Every 28 Hours project taps into the integral role that the arts—through songs, paintings, exhibits—have played in helping people to absorb, and protest, what happened in Ferguson.” Says A.C.T. Community Artistic Director Tyrone Davis, “This unique collaboration among Bay Area artists will bring diverse groups together to raise awareness about the urgent issues facing the Black community. I believe our lack of empathy for one another is the root of so much of the injustice in our society. Every 28 Hours allows us to see each other and reconnect as human beings.”

MACARIO DE TEATRO VISIÓN NOS TRANSFORMA LA VIDA

SAN JOSÉ, Calif. - Desde principios de Agosto, cinco días a la semana, un grupo de artistas de diferentes edades se ha congregado en la Mexican Heritage Plaza para ensayar Macario, una producción musical anual producida por la compañía de teatro Chicano en San José, Teatro Visión. La obra sigue a Macario, un pobre leñador en México de pre-Independencia, quien solo sueña en tener un día sin hambre. Su vida se encuentra en una encrucijada inesperada cuando el va a el bosque y se encuentra con un Ángel, el Diablo, y la Muerte. Teatro Visión es la única compañía de teatro con los derechos de autor para producir una adaptación teatral de esta historia clásica de el autor B. Traven.

Los temas de hambre y muerte de Macario son muy cercanos a muchos de los actores, quienes son originarios del Área de la Bahía. Actuar en Macario les ayuda a conectar con la historia de sus familias, su comunidad y con ellos mismos. Juan Carlos Miranda, quien actúa el papel de Panadero y de Cura, explica su propia conexión con Macario, “Yo vengo de una pobreza extrema y me puedo identificar con los personajes de Macario. El personaje principal esta experimentando una hambre extrema, añorando algo, y tratando desesperadamente de alcanzarlo, que simplemente se pierde en el proceso. Una ves que eres parte de Macario, eres parte de algo mas grande, eres parte de una causa.”

Adelita Ozuna de tan solo 12 anos, pero este será su cuarto año actuando en Macario. “La razón por la cual me integre a Macario,” ella se acuerda, “fue porque mi Abuelito acababa de fallecer y me sentía perdida … cuando estoy en el escenario, me encuentro a mi misma otra ves, por medio de Macario.” “Es algo que me encanta hacer,” dice Miranda, “Pienso que es un don cuando puedes evocar una emoción en la audiencia que vino a ver la obra … cuando estas en Macario, pienso que

te transformas porque estas ofreciendo algo.” Pueden venir a ver a Miranda, Ozuna, y sus compañeros de actuación en Macario del 13-23 de Octubre en el teatro de Mexican Heritage Plaza. Boletos de $10 a $40 ya están a la venta por medio de www.teatrovision. org/macario o llamando al 1-800-8383006. Macario es interpretado en español con subtítulos en ingles y contiene arreglos musicales originales de Russell Rodríguez y coreografía de Samuel Cortez.

ASEGURE SU IDENTIFICACIÓN CON BBB

Better Business Bureau El robo de identidad es la queja más reportado a la FTC por los consumidores cada año. De acuerdo de la FTC está perpetrado a través de métodos como el robo de bolsos, buscando en basura, phishing y spyware. “El robo de identidad poder pasar a cualquiera persona, y los efectos pueden ser costosos”, dijo Lori Wilson, Presidente y CEO de BBB sirviendo el San Francisco Bay Area y Northern Coastal California. “La destrucción de documentos confidenciales es una parte vital de protegerse de este tipo de crimen.” El robo de identidad se ocurre cuando alguien utiliza su nombre, número de seguridad social, número de tarjeta de crédito o alguna otra pieza de su información personal para solicitar una tarjeta de crédito, hacer compras no autorizadas, obtener acceso a sus cuentas bancarias u obtener préstamos bajo su nombre. Durante el transcurso de un día, usted comparte esta información cuando haga transacciones en persona, por teléfono y en línea. Si esta información confidencial caiga en las manos de un criminal, puede ser utilizado para robar su identidad financiera. Para ayudar a usted a proteger su identidad, su BBB está organizando un libre evento de destrucción de documentos el 15 de octubre en Sur San Francisco. Puede encontrar los detalles de este evento en bbb.org/greatersan-francisco/espanol/. Además de destruir sus documentos durante la Día de Asegurar su Identificación de BBB, siga estos consejos para proteger su identidad: Cómo protegerse: Esté atentos. Lea sus declaraciones de la tarjeta de crédito y sus estados de cuenta

bancarios cuidadosamente y con frecuencia. Conozca las fechas debidas para sus pagos, y si una factura no se presenta cuando se espera, haga su investigación. Lea las declaraciones de su plan de seguro de salud. Asegúrese de que las reclamaciones pagadas coincidan con la atención que usted recibió. Revise cada uno de sus tres informes de crédito en annualcreditreport.com al menos una vez al año. Mantenga su información personal segura. Mantenga sus documentos y archivos financieros en un lugar seguro, y limite lo que lleva en usted. No debe dejar su correo entrante o saliente en su buzón para demasiado tiempo, y no ordene nuevos cheques a su casa. Nunca dé información personal o financiera a alguien que llama no solicitado. Tenga cuidado con su número de seguridad social y haga preguntas antes de decidirse a compartirlo. Pregunte si puede usar otro tipo de identificación. Salvaguarde su información personal en línea. Esté alerta a los imitadores, y no comparta demasiado en los sitios de redes sociales. Cifre sus datos, y elimine con seguridad sus dispositivos e información personal. Proteja sus contraseñas: mantenerlos en un lugar seguro y garantizar que son al menos ocho caracteres y que contengan números, símbolos y letras. Instale un programa de firewall y antivirus para proteger su equipo y sus datos personales. Actualice estos programas, así como su sistema operativo y navegador web, con frecuencia. Esté a la mira de estas señales de advertencia: Usted recibe facturas para una cuenta de tarjeta de crédito que nunca abrió, u observe cargos desconocidos y no autorizados en sus facturas. Las agencias de cobranzas contactan usted en relación con el pago de deudas que no conoce. Usted es rechazado por una tarjeta

facebook.com/eonewssj twitter.com/eonews instagram.com/eonews

de crédito, hipoteca u otro préstamo porque su informe de crédito incluye deudas que no sabía que tenía.

Si usted ha sido víctima: Coloque una alerta de fraude en sus informes de crédito y obtenga copias de su informe.

Un ciclo de facturación pasa sin recibir su factura de tarjeta de crédito – u otro correo esperada – porque se ha enviado a una dirección diferente o haya sido cambiado a la facturación electrónica. Estados de cuenta bancarios incluyen transferencias o retiros que usted no recuerda, cheques faltan de su talonario de cheques o cheque nuevos no llegan en el correo.

Reporte el incidente a la Comisión Federal de Comercio (FTC). Esto permitirá a la FTC a identificar patrones asociados con las transacciones no autorizadas e investigar el origen de la fuga de datos. Reporte el incidente a la policía local o la policía en la comunidad donde ocurrió el robo de identidad. Guarde una copia del informe policial y tome nota de la fecha de su informe. Repórtelo al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB.

Recibe una factura para servicios médicos que no ha utilizado, o su plan de salud no va a cubrir a usted porque ha alcanzado su límite de beneficio. Seguro médico es denegada debido a una condición que no tiene. Recibe un aviso de que su información ha sido comprometida por una fuga de datos en una empresa donde haga negocios o tiene una cuenta.

Comience a reparar el daño. Dependiendo de su situación, su siguiente paso podría ser cerrar cuentas abiertas en su nombre, o reportar cargos fraudulentos a su compañía de tarjeta de crédito y solicitar una nueva tarjeta. Llame a todas las empresas donde se sabe que el fraude se ocurrió. Visite <robodeidentidad. gov> para más información y ayuda.

NAPS Good news for many parents who wonder what to do when the kids come home from school ravenous and dinner is hours away: According to the experts at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), it’s perfectly fine to let them have a snack when hunger strikes between meals. Just be sure, the NIH adds, that it’s a healthful snack and the portions are right. That’s just as well, considering that snacking is rising across all ages and genders—94 percent of people say they snack daily, according to market researcher Mintel.

One answer for many busy families is a pair of kid-friendly treats: Mashed Potatoes and Macaroni & Cheese. Both of these varieties are available in the new Reser’s Main St Bistro 4-Pack “single-serve” refrigerated sides. These tasty snacks are made with real dairy (milk, butter and cheese) and contain around 200 calories per cup. The easy and convenient portion-controlled cups can be heated in the microwave and are ready to eat in less than two minutes. The small oval-shaped cups are easy for kids to hold and eat from. Each cup also has heat-resistant grips on the side to protect small hands from the heat.

The only rule: You have to buy whatever they select. •Remember to include portable items for days when you’ll be shuttling kids from school to the playground or after-school activities.

Other helpful snacking hints include:

•Bring your kids into the kitchen. One bonus: Cooking together offers a great way to teach math skills and master fractions.

•Send younger kids on a “veggie hunt” and ask them to pick out a colorful or unique vegetable they find at the grocery store.

An afterschool snack can be healthful and helpful for getting kids through their homework and playtime until dinner.

FREE WIFI FOR EAST SIDE UNION HIGH

SAN JOSÉ, Calif. – The San José City Council authorized the pilot deployment of a free WiFi network serving East Side Union High School District (ESUHSD) families on Tuesday, September 20. The project is the result of a partnership between the city and district, with the goal of connecting more underserved and low-income students in San José with affordable broadband internet service.   “Every child deserves the opportunity to thrive in school, and we know that connecting students to reliable highspeed internet access can significantly enhance their chances of academic success,” said Mayor Sam Liccardo. “This project represents our first step towards achieving our vision of ensuring that all of our low-income families have access to free or low-cost broadband internet service.”   Through the partnership, the city will construct the free network and manage the installation and ongoing maintenance through a city contractor. The school district will be responsible for managing registration, providing passcodes, and offering support to help ESUHSD students and their families access the free WiFi network. To fund the project, ESUSHD has allocated $2.7 million from its 2014 general obligation technology bond measure.   “I'm extremely excited about this partnership between ESUHSD and the City of San José to leverage our resources in order to provide wireless internet access to our East Side families,” said Chris Funk, Superintendent of East

Side Union High School District. “We are changing the paradigm of teaching and learning, and demonstrating true collaboration among two public entities.” The City of San José and ESUHSD will immediately begin work on the initial WiFi network deployment in partnership with SmartWAVE Technologies. This first deployment will take place in one of three high school attendance areas:  James Lick High School, William C. Overfelt High School, or Yerba Buena High School. The specific high school attendance area will be chosen following a site survey to assess the technical feasibility of deploying a network in that area.   The project was also heralded by the three City Councilmembers who represent the three attendance areas targeted for the first phase of the project:   “Far too many of our East San José youth and families lack inexpensive high-speed internet, and  rely on our libraries, community centers, and on cell phones to access online educational resources,” said Councilmember Magdalena Carrasco. “My hope is that we can push WiFi into the homes of our students and open up new windows for more families first through this pilot and then extend it.”   "I hope that this effort will serve as a first step to closing the digital divide and helping more residents, including working families, to keep up with the important news,

information and resources from city hall and beyond," said Councilmember Tam Nguyen. “We are in the Capital of Silicon Valley,” said Vice Mayor Rose Herrera, “And in the Capital of Silicon Valley we should expect that all students have access to the internet in order to prepare for their future and the future of our community. With this deployment of a free WiFi network to our ESUHSD families and students, we are taking the right steps toward producing a well-educated workforce for the 21st century.”   This initial pilot deployment will also be used as a test case that will allow the city and school district to evaluate potential options for expanding the network to additional attendance areas in the future. This aligns with both the district’s long-term goal to expand wireless access to all of its attendance areas as well as the San José Smart City Vision to ensure that all residents have access to affordable high-speed internet access.   “Our partnership with the district show what we can accomplish when we work together for common goals,” said San José City Manager Norberto Dueñas. “By combining our strengths, our resources, and our vision we can better help students and their families achieve success in this digital age.”

DIA DE INDEPENDENCIA CELEBRATION AT 30TH STREET

Do mestic Violenc e She l t e r F und ing & Disaster Ta x R e l i e f E x te nsions Help Vi c t i m s SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The Governor signed two bills strongly supported by the Chairwoman of the California State Board of Equalization (BOE) Fiona Ma, CPA, to help victims of domestic violence and businesses devastated by natural disasters.   AB 1399 (Baker) will create a checkoff box on California personal income tax return forms which will allow Californian’s to donate to the newly created Domestic Violence Victims Fund. Domestic violence shelters will be able to apply for a grant from the new fund, administered by the California Office of Emergency Services, to help provide much-needed assistance to victims.   According to the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV), nearly onethird of all women murdered in the United States in recent years were murdered by a current or former intimate partner. In 2010, 1,017 women, more than three a day, were killed by their intimate partners. A survivor's safety and well-being is most at risk during episodes of violence and when attempting to leave an abuser. Domestic violence shelters are a key part of safety planning to prepare ahead of time and be as protected as possible.   “Women and children who have endured physical, mental, and emotional abuse need our help putting their lives back on track. AB 1399 (Baker) will help keep the shelter doors open and provide a place where women and children can sleep soundly, without fear,” said Chairwoman Ma.  

During her six year tenure in the Legislature, Chairwoman Ma served as Chair of the Domestic Violence Select Committee and witnessed how many California domestic violence shelters were forced to turn away women and children because of a lack of funding. In 2013 NNEDV conducted a 24hour survey of domestic violence programs across the nation and reported 66,581 adults and children had found refuge and assistance, while an additional 9,641 requests for services were unmet because of a lack of resources. Each one of those unmet requests is another lost opportunity to break the cycle of violence. Now that Governor Brown has signed AB 1399 (Baker), shelters will receive greatly needed financial resources. Another bill signed by the Governor, AB 1599 (Dodd) will allow the BOE to provide business owners in disaster areas more time to file returns and pay their BOE tax obligations.   “California business owners who have been severely impacted by natural disasters are focusing on the recovery of their business, which will affect their ability to file and pay their taxes,” said Chairwoman Ma.   “The Board of Equalization can now grant tax relief to countless businesses across the state that have been impacted by natural disasters. I’d like to thank Governor Jerry Brown for recognizing the urgency of this bill and acknowledging that California needs to do more to assist victims in the recovery process,” said Assemblymember Bill Dodd.

A Migrant's Life: Francisco Jiménez On the eve of receiving the John Steinbeck Award, author and educator Francisco Jiménez reflects on his storied career and life Arturo Hilario El Observador After retiring in 2015, Francisco Jiménez became Professor Emeritus of Modern Languages and Literatures at Santa Clara University, and even got to keep his office which has served as a home base for the writer since he began teaching there in the 1970's. Kenna Hall, going back to 1925, is wonderfully restored, but still has the sounds of rustling water pipes in its old bones; a great place to read, or reflect. It is here where we meet and discuss how he went from migrant worker to advocating for them, and everything in between. From social activism, to advocating for education, Jiménez had from a young age been

taught about the power of perseverance and hard work. Coming from a family of migrant workers, he learned many lessons which became the backbone of what he is passionate about today. On September 28th Jiménez will receive the John Steinbeck Award, joining such thinkers, artists and activists like Arthur Miller, Bruce Springsteen, Dolores Huerta and Michael Moore. The award is given to those that exemplify the spirit of empathy, democracy and helping those that are at the fringes of society. Steinbeck was a socially conscious writer, as evident from his most famous work, The Grapes of Wrath. For Jiménez, the path to where he is now has been filled with references to this book, and it ties in to

the first time he ever thought about becoming a writer. “Actually I didn't intend to become a writer,” says Jiménez. After writing an autobiographical piece about a near fatal event his little brother had at a migrant camp his family lived in, his high school sophomore teacher Mrs. Bell pulled him aside to talk about the assignment. She believed if he worked hard enough he could strengthen his talents, and go far in life. “I thought 'wow'. In Mexican culture we have a lot of respect for our teachers and so when she said that I felt really good inside. In a sense she planted the seed in my mind that perhaps someday I would write. And that's where it started.” Later this teacher gave him The Grapes of Wrath to read. In the book the Joad family comes to look for migrant work along with the exodus of people from the Oklahoma dust bowl, and it told a familiar story to Jiménez. “As I was reading it, with a lot of difficulty, I had to look up a lot of words, I couldn't put it down. It was the first work of literature to which I could relate. Even though the Joad family only spoke English, they came from a different culture, the experience they were going through was the experiences my family was going through and the experiences other families around us had gone through.” It was at this time when he felt that there would be some more connections to both Steinbeck and the experiences of migrant workers in his future. And of course, maybe some writing. Through the aid of local scholarships from high school Jiménez arrived at Santa Clara University for the first time, as an undergraduate. He was the first in his family to get to go to college and understandably felt alienated to the environment. “I sometimes felt like I didn’t

belong here because everybody around me seemed so much smarter, they had traveled, and so (in) moments where I began to felt inadequate I began to think about my childhood, to give me the strength not to give up.” These journal entries that Jiménez began to take about his life would become the skeleton to his memoirs. From the family leaving their home of Jalisco, Mexico, to their cross of the imaginary line that split it from the USA. While managing a full workload as a research assistant, resident assistant and student he would write these recollections in his notebook. At the age of 6 he began helping his family in the fields, picking strawberries in his first home in Santa Maria, and the eventual move to pick grapes in the San Joaquin Valley, then cotton in Corcoran, and then back in Santa Maria picking carrots and thinning lettuce. Jiménez recalls, Consequently we missed a lot of school, I would not start school for the first time until the middle of November. So one of the things that I did in order to not fall too behind was I carried a little notepad in my shirt pocket and everyday I would add an english word and its definition. So when I was working I would increase my vocabulary. And I would write other things in that little notepad that I needed to learn.” While the realization of what he was accomplishing while working as a child in the hot Central Valley sun wouldn't come until later in life, Jiménez does recall a key memory in his childhood that shaped the foundation of his life afterwards. “One of the migrant camps in Orosi burned down so we lost the few things we had, including my notepad. I was terribly upset and crying and my mother being the wise woman she was said to me, 'Panchito I know you’re upset but you should be thankful to god that not no one in our family got hurt.' And I said ‘si mama pero es que eh perdido mi libretita' (yes mom,

but i've lost my little notebook) and so she looked me straight in the eye and she asked me ‘well Panchito, do you remember what you had written in your little notepad?’ And I thought about it and said ‘pues si mama’ because I had memorized all that material and then she answered, ‘well Panchito, not everything was lost.’” In that moment the idea of the permanence of knowledge was revealed to the young Panchito. “In this very, very unstable life that we were living for the first 9 years that we were here, I yearned for stability, for permanence in my life. And where I found stability was in learning and education. That’s why I went into education, it’s not surprising.” During his time as an undergraduate his grades improved year by year, and as a senior he applied for the Woodrow Wilson Fellowship, which was offered to students who would eventually become university professors. And so, Jiménez would go on to Columbia University to continue his studies. During his time at Columbia, Jiménez would go under the wing of a professor of Latin American Literature, Andrés Iduarte, who was an accomplished writer and knew all the Latin writers they would be studying personally. “His classes were wonderful because he would talk about writers in a very personal way without being pompous and brought the material alive. When I showed him some of my ‘scribblings’ he said you know Panchito you should put all those thoughts together and you should write, write a book about what you went through as a child and as an adolescent. And again, his comment reminding me of Mrs. Bell my sophomore year.” So Jiménez set forth writing these stories about his childhood, which would end up becoming his first book, The Circuit. While synthesizing his experiences he realized that he was not only chronicling his own migrant family's history, but a shared one that at the time was nonexistent in literature. “That was my incentive for continuing writing. That I was going to chronicle part of my family's history, but more importantly I was going to document the experiences of many migrant families of the past to the present who worked very hard from sun up to sundown, for very low wages, living in poor conditions and what sustains these families is the hope and dreams of having a better life for their children and their children's children,” says Jiménez. As the year's passed Jiménez became a professor at Columbia while finishing his dissertation and starting a family. Once he had his wife and two children, he decided Manhattan was too expensive and not the best place to raise his young family. He then applied for an administration position at Santa Clara University. Coming back as the Director of the Division of Arts and Humanities in 1972, he no longer felt that nervousness that he did day one as a freshman. “I was in charge of 9 departments in the Humanities, while at the same time teaching. Then I eventually became the Associate Academic Vice President. I did that for 4 years and I was torn between teaching and

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com administration. I did both for 20 years without taking a sabbatical.” During this whole ascension of his career, Jiménez thought about that book he had started but put away to pursue his academic goals.

those that still come to this country with hope for a better life. In the dedication to La Mariposa it reads, “To my teachers, whose faith in my ability and guidance helped me break the migrant

SEPTEMBER 23-29, 2016 circuit.”

“In 1995 I finally took a break. The administration gave me a full year’s paid sabbatical. During that sabbatical is when I wrote the rest of the chapters in The Circuit. The book was published by the New Mexico University Press, it garnered, to my surprise some really nice national literary prizes. Houghton Mifflin offered me a contract to write the sequel, Breaking Through, where I describe my experiences in high school. Then they gave me another contract so I wrote Reaching Out, where I document my experience being the first person in my family to go to college. I talk about what it was like those four years. The most recent one is Taking Hold where I talk about the experiences of getting my education at Columbia. What binds the theme in all four books is really the transformative power of education.” Jiménez believes thoroughly that taking advantage of your education is a key to upward mobility. “ I tell young people how important it is to apply themselves to get the best education possible. By working hard in their studies they’re honoring the sacrifices their parents or grandparents made when they left their homeland. It guarantees them a better life. You have choices.” These days, as he continues to talk with migrant communities as well as lectures across the country, he advises both groups about the importance of education, identity and inclusion. “You can’t let people treat you (bad). Wherever we see injustice we should fight against injustice. That's what Steinbeck was trying to say in his book The Grapes of Wrath. One of the characters in the end says ‘wherever there is an injustice, I’ll be there’. It just destroys the fabric of our nation if we don't create a more inclusive society, and we suffer as a democracy. And when one group suffers we all suffer.” Jiménez has given a great deal of thought about the John Steinbeck accolade he will receive at San José State University on September 28th. “I’m very proud to get the award, and it really belongs to all of us. It belongs to my parents, people who have worked very hard to promote social justice. Cesar Chavez, Dolores Huerta. Martin Luther King. I mean, that award belongs to all of them. And all of us who see the need to promote social justice and those who have suffered, it belongs to them too so for me that’s why that award is so meaningful.” And as the interview comes to an end, we sit and look at some of his books, one in particular is a children's book, La Mariposa, an adaptation of the story “Inside Out” from the book The Circuit. This colorful book about a little boy, (Jiménez), and his experience going to first grade and learning about the life of a butterfly. Like a butterfly, Jiménez went through a metamorphosis, that transformative point where he grew into an educator and an advocate for

Acuerdo sobre EnergĂ­a Renovable & ConservaciĂłn del Desierto

Desert Renewable Energy Plan Kicks into Gear Suzanne Potter California News Service

PALM DESERT, Calif. -- Private lands in the southern California desert will have a large role to play in fighting climate change, according to conservation groups. The U.S. Secretary of the Interior signed the Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan last week, which covers 11 million acres of federal land. It set aside 600 square miles for energy development zones, while protecting habitat for such species as the bighorn sheep, desert tortoise and Mohave ground squirrel. Kim Delfino, California program director with Defenders of Wildlife, said that during phase two, counties will identify private lands that are considered "low conflict" and thus more suitable for renewable energy development.

Suzanne Potter California News Service PALM DESERT, Calif. - La Secretaria del Interior de los Estados Unidos, Sally Jewell, viajo este pasado miercoles, 13 de septiembre a Palm Desert para firmar el registro que deja en firme el Plan de Conservacion de Energia Renovable del Desierto (Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan).

Hace algunos anos las solicitudes de proyectos abarcaban mas de 1.6 millones de acres de tierra. Helen O'Shea, directora del Proyecto de Energia Renovable del Occidente (Western Renewable Energy Project) en el Consejo de Defensa de los Recursos Naturales (Natural Resources Defense Council), dice que ahora los proyectos seran concentrados en areas focales de desarrollo.

El acuerdo cubre casi 11 millones de acres de tierra y protege amplias franjas de habitat ademas de reservar zonas especificas en las que se promovera la instalacion de proyectos de energia eolica, solar y geotermica.

"Es motivar a los desarrolladores a que vayan ahi coordinando el proceso de desarrollo. Asi que si vas a una de esas areas de desarrollo focal, realmente podras ubicar ahi tu proyecto por la rapidez de los permisos. Y construir mas rapido tambien es mas barato."

Dan Smuts, director general de La Sociedad Silvestre (The Wilderness Society) en California, Oregon y Washington, dice que en los ultimos anos se desato una carrera loca por apoderarse de parcelas al azar para el desarrollo de energia.

Frazer Haney, director de conservacion en el Fideicomiso de la Tierra del Desierto Mojave (Mojave Desert Land Trust), se declara contento de ver que el plan destina 2.8 millones de acres adicionales a las nuevas tierras nacionales de conservacion.

"Estamos pasando del nivel de un proceso de proponer proyecto por proyecto que ha conducido a un desarrollo disperso en el desierto, hacia un enfoque zonificado donde se identifican los lugares menos conflictivos al inicio del proyecto. Es lo que llamamos 'inteligente desde el principio.'"

"El desierto contiene 28 por ciento de la masa de tierra estatal, pero mas del 35 por ciento de su biodiversidad. Es un lugar de increible belleza y de una tremenda variedad para la exploracion humana y tambien para la ciencia."

El Presidente Obama declaro tres nuevos monumentos nacionales en esta area: las rutas Mojave Trails, Sand to Snow y Castle Mountains. Pero la administracion tambien dio prioridad a la promocion de energia renovable en tierras publicas.

El Plan de Conservacion de la Energia Renovable (Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan) toma en cuenta todo el paisaje del desierto y enfatiza corredores para conectar la vida silvestre y proteger las tierras que son cruciales para la capacidad de adaptacion de las especies nativas al cambio climatico.

SEPTEMBER 23-29, 2016

"The idea is that the more degraded lands will have a role to play in hopefully being where projects will get built," Delfino said. "And the more intact desert lands - which actually have a climate benefit because it sequesters carbon

- those will remain intact." Private lands are often closer to transmission lines and population centers where energy is needed. Los Angeles, Inyo and Imperial counties have already started their land planning processes. The focus will now move to the west Mojave Desert that stretches across San Bernardino and Kern Counties. Erica Brand, California Energy Program director at The Nature Conservancy, said her group has done multiple analyses to identify the best locations for renewable energy, and found that most are on private land. She praised the state and county land planners and wildlife managers who are working on phase two of the Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan. "California is leading by example and showing the world that we can have a strong cleanenergy economy while protecting nature," Brand said. Phase two of the plan is expected to take several years to complete.

College Democrats Endorse Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez for U.S Senate Democrats, and the Fresno State College Democrats. Overwhelming support from college students comes from the Congresswoman’s consistent support for college affordability over her twenty years in Congress as well as her plan to lower the cost of higher education in the U.S. Senate by bringing the cost of community tuition down to $5/unit, expanding the Federal Pell Grant program, and reforming Student Loan Refinancing.

Orange, CA – Last week, the College Democrats of University of California Irvine, College Democrats of Cal State University Fullerton, and the College Democrats of Orange Coast Community College voted to endorse Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez for United States Senate, joining UC Merced College Democrats, Orange County Young

"Loretta Sanchez is a candidate who understand the importance of allowing everyone to have access to affordable higher education. This is the reason why The College Democrats at UCI believe she is the best choice for California and are endorsing Loretta Sanchez for U.S. Senate," said Manuel Chavez, President of University of California Irvine. President of Orange Coast Community Democrats Omar Haddad cited the

Congresswoman’s pledge to lower the cost of community college: “As a community college student I am particularly excited to see her plan to make classes five dollars a unit as well as expand existing two year programs to four years that culminate in a bachelor’s degree. Not everyone has the ability to afford rising tuition costs at existing public universities and I think this really would great equal opportunity in California’s higher education system. The Orange Coast College Young Democrats are proud to support a candidate so invested in the youth, and in the general, the well-being of California.” California State University Fullerton overwhelming voted to endorse Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez at their first meeting of the semester, citing the Congresswoman’s record: “CSUF College Democrats have chosen to endorse Loretta Sanchez for US Senate due to her exceptional track record of leadership and judgement in congress for the last 20 years. Additionally, we are excited to endorse a fellow Orange County community member who understands the needs and desires of her constituents, especially college students. CSUF College Democrats are fully confident that Loretta Sanchez will continue to fight for pressing issues such as income inequality

and college affordability; as an organization we look forward to achieving these goals,” said President Alec Marshall. “Loretta is the leader we need in the Senate. She has never ducked a hard vote and a challenge. Loretta will be a champion for affordable college and student loan reform in the Senate,” said Luis Aleman, member of University of California Democrats. The Fullerton State College Democrats, University of California Irvine College Democrat’s and the Orange Coast Community College Democrats are active campus organizations that promote candidates who champion affordable education, income inequality and immigration reform. “I am so thrilled to receive such overwhelming support from students. As someone who paid my way through college on Pell Grants, union grants and scholarship, I know first-hand the importance college affordability,” states Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez.

Washington, D.C. – House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement on the fifth anniversary of the end of the discriminatory “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy: “Five years ago, America moved closer to fulfilling its highest ideals of equality under the law by ending the discriminatory ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy.  Today, LGBT servicemembers are able to serve with dignity – and be recognized for the sacrifices they make every day to keep our nation safe.   “ Tha n k s t o t he e f for t s of t he Oba m a Administration and the leadership of House Democrats, we are continuing to dismantle the barriers that prevent our servicemembers from openly serving in our Armed Forces.  Transgender servicemembers may now serve the nation they love openly, without denying who they are as

they do so. While House Republicans continue to obstruct efforts to fully recognize the spouses of LGBT servicemembers and veterans by promoting an agenda of discrimination, House Democrats know that Americans are stronger together – and all our military families and caregivers have earned and deserve full equality.   “Ending ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ and overturning the ban against open service by transgender servicemembers affirms the steadfast principle that anyone who wishes to serve this nation should be welcome, judged by their abilities, and honored for their sacrifices.  As the next generation of Americans see the service of openly gay Army Secretary Eric Fanning and others, they too will know that they are welcome to serve.  Under this guiding principle, we can continue to celebrate a more inclusive, stronger America for all.”

SEMANA DE LOS ARCÁNGELES, GABRIEL, MIGUEL Y RAFAEL

Daniel (Daniel 8:16; 9:21), se pareció a San Zacarías para anunciar que su esposa Santa Isabel daría a luz a San Juan Bautista (Lucas 1:11,19), y también se le apareció a la Santísima Virgen María para anunciarle que sería la madre de Jesucristo, El Salvador del Mundo(Lucas 1:26)

SEPTEMBER 23-29, 2016 Peticiones: Se le pide para alejar energías, fuerzas negativas y espíritus malignos, también para deshacer hechizos, embrujos y ensalmos. Se le pide protección contra envidias, enemistades, malas voluntades y calumnias. SAN RAFAEL ARCÁNGEL

Peticiones: San Gabriel es uno de los grandes intermediarios entre el mundo y el cielo. Pídale cuando esté a la espera de grandes noticias, cuando tenga que resolver algún asunto judicial o litigio, para salir airoso de problemas legales. Pida con fe para que su familia y hogar sean bendecidos. SAN MIGUEL ARCÁNGEL

Mario Jiménez Castillo El Observador Durante el transcurso de esta semana se celebra espiritualmente en honor a los Arcángeles, San Gabriel, San Miguel y San Rafael. ángeles mencionados en las sagradas escrituras y en libros sagrados e históricos. Los fieles suelen realizar romerías y peregrinaciones a iglesias y sitios considerados como sagrados. En la semana de los Arcángeles se piden todo tipo de milagros y bendiciones. Según relatos de los libros sabrados, El Creador otorga muchas

potestades milagrosas y espirituales para que los arcángeles obren en la vida de quienes les invocan. La conmemoración a los arcángeles inicia el 22 de septiembre y culmina el día 29 de septiembre, fecha que se conoce como el día de todos los ángeles. SAN GABRIEL ARCÁNGEL San Gabriel es uno de los siete arcángeles, es el ángel mensajero de Dios, su nombre significa”Poder de Dios”. De él existen varios relatos de sus apariciones en la Biblia. Se le apareció en forma de hombre al profeta

San Miguel, junto con los Santos Gabriel y Rafael, es uno de los tres arcángeles mencionados en las santas escrituras. Él es el de más alto rango de los siete arcángeles y tiene cuatro obligaciones principales: pelear por siempre contra el poder maligno de Satanás, rescatar almas de las garras de la oscuridad, defender a todas las personas que creen en el poder de Dios, y llamar a todos los que parten de la tierra para llevar a esas almas ante el juicio del Creador. Es considerado como el capitán de las legiones celestiales. San Miguel Arcángel ha sido coronado como el eterno vencedor en contra de todas las fuerzas del mal. Y se ha escrito que estará presente el día del juicio final.

San Rafael es uno de los siete ángeles que están apostados constantemente ante el trono del Altísimo (Tobías 12:15) Bajo la apariencia humana, siguió al joven Tobías hacia Rages, para así cobrar un préstamo hecho por el viejo Tobías a Gabelo. Durante el camino se detuvo para arrojar a un demonio fuera de Sara, hija de Ragüel, a la que obtuvo en matrimonio para Tobías. Luego fue a Recibir el dinero de Gabelo y recondujo al joven Tobías sano y salvo devuelta a su casa. Inmediatamente entró a la morada, curó de la ceguera al viejo Tobías (Tobías 5:11) y lleno aquella casa de grandes bendiciones enviadas por Dios. Su nombre significa “Dios Sana”. Peticiones: San Rafael es uno de los médicos celestiales, pídale para cualquier caso de enfermedad. Depresión, ansiedad y malestares espirituales son sanados por San Rafael. Además se le reza para contar con la bendición de Dios en el seno familiar.

WHEN PHONES EXPLODE

··Constantly

evolving

chemistries

and

designs

To help avoid issues with your batteries, the CPSC recommends the following safety tips:

··Subject

··Only

rechargeable batteries

die if completely drained (protection circuits are designed to prevent this)

purchase batteries and chargers directly from the manufacturer or from a manufacturer-recommended source. Buying counterfeit or poorly manufactured batteries increases the chance of having an issue.

Why Do Lithium-ion Batteries Explode?

··Do not let a loose battery come in contact

to transportation restrictions (usually not applied to personal-sized batteries)

The two chemicals (often Lithium cobalt oxide, or LiCoO2, and carbon) that enable lithium-ion batteries to store and discharge energy are separated by a “separator.” The purpose of the separator is to prevent the electrodes from short-circuiting. If the separator is compromised (especially when the battery is fully charged), a significant amount of heat may be generated in a chemical chain reaction. This condition is known as a “thermal runaway.” In rare cases, this can cause the electrolyte to boil or the cell casing to rupture, or both. This could result in a fire or an explosion. Again, in a well-designed, well-manufactured battery, thermal runaways are extremely rare. What Happened with the Samsung Note7 Batteries?

Shelly Palmer Overheard: “I’d buy a Samsung Note7, but they explode.” No, they don’t. Defective lithium-ion batteries explode. This is an important distinction. And regardless of the sensationalist claims you’ve heard from ratings-seekers and clickbaiters, lithiumion batteries don’t explode very often. Here’s what you need to know. From Smartphones to Electric Cars There are hundreds of millions of lithiumion batteries manufactured each year. They offer an attractive cost-to-power ratio, and you’ll find them in almost every kind of rechargeable device, including smartphones, laptops, drones, flashlights, e-cigs and even your new Tesla. How Lithium-ion Batteries Work Lithium-ion batteries have two electrodes (a cathode and an anode) separated by a barrier called an electrolyte. When you charge a lithium-ion battery, ions of lithium move through the electrolyte from the positive electrode to the negative electrode.

And you guessed it: when you are using the battery, lithium ions move back through the electrolyte from the negative electrode to the positive electrode. Lithium-ion batteries offer many advantages:

··Light weight ··Very high energy density ··Low

maintenance compared with most other battery chemistries

··No

memory effect (you do not have to train them; just don’t overcharge them or completely drain them)

··Lower

environmental impact (relatively speaking) when disposed of

··Of

course, lithium-ion batteries also have some disadvantages:

··Require

a protection circuit (to prevent overcharging and overheating)

··Subject to aging (two- to three-year lifespan)

Responsible Lithium-ion Battery Ownership

··More expensive to manufacture than other

··Will

With hundreds of millions of lithium-ion batteries being manufactured each year, it is reasonable to assume that some defective units will find their way into the marketplace. Many major manufacturers such as HP, Sony, Toshiba and Panasonic have had lithium-ion recalls this year. Samsung identified the Note 7s containing the defective batteries (by serial number) and, in an abundance of caution, recalled every Note 7. If you have a Samsung Note7 purchased before September 15, 2016, you should exchange it for a new one. Tim Baxter, president and COO of Samsung Electronics America, said, “To date, we already have exchanged 130,000 units—a fast and meaningful start. And with the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) partnership, we will continue implementing corrective steps to exchange every single Note7 on the market. Consumers should visit <samsung.com/us/note7recall> for carrier and retailer specific instructions on how and where to exchange their Note7 device.” Yes, but Are Samsung Phones Safe? See, that’s the problem with sensational news stories. They’re all about the headline and less about the facts. Samsung recalled the Note7 because it identified a problem with a small number of batteries it installed in the devices. Samsungs don’t explode; defective lithium-ion batteries explode. And with billions of lithium-ion batteries in the marketplace, fires and explosions are so rare they make the news.

with metal objects, such as coins, keys, or jewelry. Metal objects can cross the electrical connections and cause an incident if the internal protection circuitry isn’t functioning correctly.

··Do not crush, puncture or put a high degree

of pressure on the battery, as this can cause an internal short-circuit, resulting in overheating.

··Do not place the phone or batteries in areas

that may get very hot, such as on or near a cooking surface, cooking appliance, iron, radiator or the dashboard of your car in the summer.

··If you drop your phone or laptop on a hard

surface, it can potentially cause damage to the battery. If you suspect damage to the battery, take it to a service center for inspection.

··If your phone gets wet, even if the device dries and operates normally, the battery contacts or circuitry could slowly corrode and pose a safety hazard.

··And if you see any bulging, leakage or other abnormality from your battery, stop using it immediately.

Are the Replacement Samsung Note7s with Lithium-ion Batteries Safe? The risk of a lithium-ion battery fire or explosion is so low, I am happy to carry a smartphone in my pocket (all the time). As for the Note7, if you have one purchased before September 15, 2016, send it back and get a new one. If you’re wondering if the new ones will be safe, the short answer is YES. And not to put too fine a point on it, the Note7 has a 3.5mm headphone jack, and Bluetooth, and a USB C port AND you can charge it on a charging pad, which means unlike the iPhone 7, you can listen to music or talk on the phone while charging it.
