SANTA CLARA COUNTY NATIONAL HERITAGE AREA: A “WORK IN PROGRESS” PROPOSAL

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR Board of Supervisors President Dave Cortese initiated the task force which had its third meeting on Tuesday, September 27, 2016. After reviewing all materials received, I decided that this proposal asking the U.S. Congress to designate the County of Santa Clara as a “National Heritage Area” needed to become known to the entire community. Why? Simply because indigent residents have to know enough to decide to participate...to become involved, engaged, and committed to ensuring that their entire evolutionary development in this county is included. All ethnic groups need to be included so as to truly reflect the rich diversity of cultures, values, and legacies which now exist here. An objective is to identify sites which future tourists may visit and to document the many stories which are not being told to our children and grandchildren, to let them know that their family roots

go deep here in this County of Santa Clara. Believe it or not... this ends up being “economic development” (impacting tourism & hospitality industry at the minimum). The documents provided to EO by the Office of Supervisor Dave Cortese state: “There are fortynine National Heritage Areas (most located along America's Atlantic seacoast). Each one is authorized by Congress through legislation with a purpose to preserve, promote, and interpret natural and cultural resources and, in some cases, make them available for the economic benefit of their communities.” “The NHA concept rests on the idea that a shared narrative is the centerpiece of a community engagement strategy, bringing diverse stakeholders together to fashion a common vision for the desired future of the region. A shared regional identity is a critical factor for success. People must feel rooted in a place. Communicating factual historical knowledge of places through storytelling is important.” Evaluations of existing NHAs point out that their highest-

priority is cultural and natural resource conservation, with significant investments in the restoration of watersheds and river corridors, the preservation of landmark properties, and the documentation of cultural practice and folk traditions. Education and interpretation of the natural and built environments, including the cultural traditions of residents, is the second-highest priority. The recommended Santa Clara County NHA Purpose Statement is: "The purpose of Santa Clara County becoming a National Heritage Area is to revitalize participation in the Valley's history (legacy) and heritage to promote involvement in innovative and sustainable solutions to the County’s future development. Santa Clara County will use the NHA for programs related to the region's natural, historical and cultural resources to improve the quality of our physical environment, the vitality of our public spaces, and the economic and social opportunity of our communities." Recorded history of this area began with the arrival of Spanish Missionaries who used

local Native American labor to build those missions which still exist. Prior to this “Nuevo España” era, the Ohlone and Coastanoan tribes lived in this valley. During the Mexican era, Santa Clara Valley became the food basket for the Missions and Presidios at Monterrey and San Francisco. Land grants were awarded to Spaniards such as the Arrellaga family who managed to retain their lands and profit from that resource. The Arrellaga Family Foundation has contributed much wealth to Stanford University where much investigative research in biology, engineering, physical sciences, and biomedical sciences has occurred. While the general public knows about “High Tech”, the development of biomedical knowledge & technology needs inclusion, i.e. the first human heart transplant here at Stanford Medical Center,the Nobel Prize (Medicine, 1959) for characterization of DNA ( the human genome now fully characterized enabling each of us to know who our ancestors may have been), the population dynamics noted in “The Population Bomb” book. There

exists a treasure-trove of biomedical developments which enabled development of many bio-medical firms in Silicon Valley. Getting back to ethnic peoples and their cultures, this NHA proposal would be incomplete without input from Ohlone/ Coastanoan Native Americans; Mexican-Americans, Chinese, Filipino and Vietnamese ethnic groups who participated as a labor reservoir in mining, agri-business, and high-tech developments. Representatives from these ethnic cohorts need to be chosen by their own civic organizations. Hopefully, the leaders of the local ethnic civic groups, such as the San Jose American GI Forum must step up to this inclusive opportunity. Keep in mind that this is a work in progress which needs your constructive input. This NHA proposal cannot be submitted to the U.S. Congress without prior BOS approval.

Honor a quien honor merece

Por José López Zamorano Para La Red Hispana

Dice un dicho que "honor a quien honor merece". Y este mes el adagio se cumplió a cabalidad, primero con la entrega de las Medallas de las Artes y Humanidades a 4 México-americanos y a un español entre una veintena de estadounidenses; y, por separado, con los Premios de la Herencia Hispana a un haz de notables latinas y latinos que han enriquecido a este país con su talento y carácter. Fue el presidente Barack Obama quien encabezó en la Casa Blanca la ceremonia de reconocimiento a la escritora Sandra Cisneros, al dramaturgo Luis Valdez, al novelistaRudolfoAnaya,almúsicochicano Santiago Jiménez y al chef José Andrés. No fueron los únicos galardonados, pero fueron los nuestros. Sus méritos son tan diversos como sus personalidades. Si no todos les suenan familiares los invito a profundizar en sus vidas y obras sumergiéndose en esa mágica enciclopedia instantánea que es el Internet.

Tienen todos algo en común, como dijo el presidente Obama, pues son "los mejores en lo que hacen".

Es una gran definición del éxito personal o profesional: no importa si escribes una novela, tocas una canción o cocinas una sopa. Si haces el mejor esfuerzo, serás recompensado con la satisfacción del deber cumplido. Los premios no son la meta, sólo la cereza del pastel. No muy lejos de la Casa Blanca, en el majestuoso Teatro Warner, la Fundación de la Herencia Hispana (HHF) otorgó otros reconocimientos no menos importantes a un puñado de latinos, cuyo esmero y talento los ha encumbrado no sólo entre sus pares, sino como modelos de la comunidad. Recibieron preseas la primera latina magistradadelaSupremaCortedeJusticia, la puertorriqueña Sonia Sotomayor, el escritor de origen dominicano Junot Díaz, la actriz mexicana Angélica María, los cantantes Prince Royce, y J. Balvin, los empresarios George Herrera, Tony

Jiménez y Fania All Stars, que no requiere presentación,

todos los que nunca pudieron cruzar con nosotros”.

Entre todas las personalidades galardonadas me atrevo a decir que fue Junot Díaz quien capturó con su breve, pero profundo discurso de aceptación el espíritu de los tiempos que corren, cuando agradeció en voz alta la distinción y decidió compartirla con su comunidad latina, caribeña, especialmente a los jóvenes indocumentados:

Sus palabras finales fueron una bofetada con guante blanco a quien le asiente: “nosotros en la comunidad latina somos los héroes más grandes que nuestro mundo ha conocido y a pesar de todo lo que hacemos y todo lo que somos, nos encontramos atacados y demonizados y en peligro, no sólo en este país; en todo el mundo comunidades como la nuestra están bajo asalto y eso por eso que no podemos sólo sobrevivir o vivir, tenemos que pelear por justicia, tenemos que pelear por igualdad”.

“Nuestra comunidad es el modelo de fuerza, de resistencia de creatividad. Somos el único súper poder que este país conocerá. Sobrevivimos todo lo que este mundo nos lanzó: sobrevivimos guerras, sobrevivimos dictadores, sobrevivimos torturas y violencia, violencia interminable y fronteras, todas las malditas fronteras y la soledaddelapromesadeunanuevatierra… nuestra historia es una saga épica y una odisea. Cruzamos continentes y océanos y cada vez que no había un camino, hicimos un camino. Somos los hijos de puentes, puentes hechos de nuestras espaldas, nuestras lágrimas, nuestros sacrificios y de

Imposible poner en palabras más elocuentes lo que significa la experiencia del migrante, que es universal. Que mejor manera que dar esa pelea de la que habla Junot Díaz con el ejercicio deliberado de nuestros derechos, uno de los más importantes de los cuales es el voto. Se dice que el voto es nuestra voz, nunca más cierto que ahora. Para más información visita www. laredhispana.org

GOVERNOR SIGNS BILL CO-SPONSORED BY THE SCCOE Bill will ease affordable child care access to low-income families

SAN JOSE, CA  – Hundreds more children in Santa Clara County will have access to high-quality child care following the signing on September 24 of Assembly Bill 2368 by Governor Jerry Brown that will ease restrictions for low-income families. Authored by  Assemblyman Rich Gordon, representing California’s 24thDistrict, and co-sponsored by the Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) and child care provider Kidango, the new law gives the county government limited flexibility regarding child care subsidy funds.   AB2368 authorizes Santa Clara County to develop and implement an individualized child care subsidy plan from January 1, 2017 until January 1, 2022, but it does not change the total amount of funds allocated to the county for subsidized child care, nor does it result in additional statewide assistance costs.   “Simply put, this law will enable Santa Clara

County child development agencies to provide high-quality preschool and child care to more low-income children and their families,” said County Superintendent of Schools Jon R. Gundry. The double-edged sword of living in Silicon Valley is the high cost of living brings competitive wages, but this also pushes many families over the state eligibility requirements allowed for child care assistance. In addition, reimbursement rates for child care providers based on a statewide index don’t provide enough to cover local program costs. This resulted in the county returning approximately $9.3 million to the state in unused state subsidized child care contracts in 2014-15, according to the county’s Local Early Education Planning Council, which equates to about 1,100 more children who could have been served.  

As the largest early learning provider in the county — offering a variety of programs for young children, families and districts, including Head Start, Early Start and State Preschool — the SCCOE has long been a champion for early learning to prepare students for kindergarten and academic success throughout school. In 2012, the SCCOE convened Strong Start, a coalition of community leaders, early education providers, nonprofit organizations, elected officials, members of the business community, and other key stakeholders who are committed to expanding access to high-quality early learning opportunities for children age 0 to 8 in Santa Clara County.   The coalition meets monthly to find local solutions to help increase access to high quality early education and advocates for legislation at the state level to encourage increased investments in early learning. In May, a

delegation of Strong Start representatives visited Bay Area legislators in Sacramento to advocate for early learning programs, including AB 2368, and has been actively supporting the bill every step of the way. AB 2368 was co-authored by Assemblymembers Kansen Chu, Evan Low, and Mark Stone, and Senators Jim Beall, Jerry Hill, and Bob Wieckowski.

have been with us at Stratford since their preschool years. STEM learning truly begins at the preschool level and culminates with an outstanding middle school program,” expressed Sherry Adams, Stratford School Founder and Chief Academic Officer.

The Broadcom MASTERS were created to inspire students to pursue their passions and become the next generation of scientists and engineers. Their goal ties in directly with Stratford School’s goal, to inspire learning that prepares students for jobs that don’t exist…yet.

Stratford School Students Named National Finalists in Sixth Annual Middle School STEM Competition SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (September 22, 2016) — The nation’s most prestigious middle school competition in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) — Broadcom MASTERS® — has named two students from Silicon Valleybased educational leader Stratford School among the program’s 30 finalists. Shreya Ramachandran of Fremont and Aalok Patwa of San Jose were awarded a trip to Washington, DC October 27-November 1 to compete for $100,000 in prizes. They will join 150 Broadcom MASTERS alumni who have achieved the highest national middle school STEM accolades. Shreya and Aalok were among more than 6,000 students nominated nationwide.   Monisha Gupta, Senior Director of Curriculum and Instruction at Stratford School, said, "Academic competitions are a cornerstone at Stratford. The strong foundation offered at Stratford helps our students excel in these opportunities every year. Students welcome a chance to compare their skills with the broader community and share their interests in these subjects.”   Shreya Ramachandran’s entry is titled, “The effect of Soap Nut Grey Water on the

Environment.” Due to a drought, experts have encouraged California households to conserve water by not watering their lawns. Another water-saving choice is to use socalled grey water. Grey water might not be safe for drinking, but it still might work for other purposes. Used laundry water is one example, but, as Shreya notes, “Many commercial laundry detergents have harmful chemicals.” In contrast, she says, soap nuts are a natural detergent made from the Indian soap berry. Shreya tested how wastewater from washing with soap nuts might work for irrigation.   Aalok Patwa’s entry is titled, “Do I Grind? A Wearable System That Detects Bruxism Ahead of Its Effect on Teeth” One day Aalok’s dad woke up with a cracked tooth, which required him to undergo a root canal. It turned out that Aalok’s dad had bruxism, a condition where someone excessively clenches the jaw or grinds the teeth. Many people with bruxism experience jaw pain as a symptom. Oddly enough, Aalok’s dad hadn’t known he had the condition. “I decided to make a device that would inform someone if they had bruxism before the lasting damage occurred,” says Aalok.   “It's rewarding to see our students achieve this level of excellence.

BUSINESS

ESTAFA DE “ABUELOS” NO SÓLO AFECTA LAS PERSONAS MAYORES era una estafa y el nieto está perfectamente bien; pero la abuela ha perdido mil dólares a un impostor. Esto sucedió a mis propios abuelos – pero por suerte un cajero de banco reconocido que estaban siendo estafados y les impedía enviar dinero a un estafador. Este tipo de estafa es común, y la FTC lanzó una advertencia sobre el fenómeno debido a informes recientes. Sin embargo, el término ‘estafa de “abuelos”’ es un nombre incorrecto. El término más adecuado para esta actividad fraudulenta es una estafa de “emergencia familiar o de amigo” o estafa de “impostor de familia”, y cualquier persona puede ser objetivo. Better Business Bureau

La frase ‘estafa de “abuelos”’ suena una campaña para muchas personas: una anciana recibe una llamada de su nieto, afirmando que hay una emergencia y pidiendo dinero. La abuela, muy preocupada, rápidamente envié una gran cantidad de dinero. Por desgracia, en realidad

De hecho, las personas mayores no son necesariamente los que necesitan estar preocupado. Aunque las personas mayores de 65 reportaron tres veces más de estas estafas al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB que las personas menores de 65 años, las personas mayores perdieron menos de la mitad del dinero que las

personas más jóvenes perdieron.

Esto no es sorprendente – según una nueva investigación por el Better Business Bureau (BBB), las personas mayores son menos susceptibles a las estafas que los estereotipos sociales proponen. Las personas menores de 45 años en realidad constituyen 69% de las víctimas de estafas. Es importante que personas de todas edades son conscientes de la estafa de “impostor de familia” ya que puede suceder a cualquier persona. Además, la perdida promedio de $2.750 para esta estafa es el más grande de todos los tipos de estafas. Esta estafa sigue un patrón. Un “sobrino”, “nieto”, “primo”, “amigo” o “niño” llamen o envíen un correo electrónico a un amigo o miembro de la familia, alegando que haya una emergencia. Están fuera del país y algo malo paso, han sido detenidos o han hecho algo embarazosa, o han estado en un accidente – y necesitan dinero inmediatamente. Ofrecen muchas razones para

que usted debe pagar en el momento y no hablar de su situación a nadie. Según la FTC, estas llamadas son casi siempre estafas, no importa cuán convincente suenan. Si usted recibe una llamada como esto, puede tratar de verificar la identidad del llamador por preguntando por su cumpleaños o segundo nombre: esto puede descalificar inmediatamente al estafador. La FTC recomienda colgar y llamar al miembro de la familia o amigo directamente, y nunca envié dinero a alguien que llama preguntando por ello. Reporte estos estafas al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB en bbb.org/scamtracker y a la FTC en ftccomplaintassistant.gov/ Information#crnt&panel1-1. Es importante que usted y todos los miembros de su familia y amigos, no sólo sus abuelos, son educados sobre esta estafa: BBB encontró que 80% de personas dijeron que saber acerca de una estafa ayudó a ellos a evitar convertirse en una víctima.

“GRANDPARENT’S” SCAM TARGETS MORE THAN JUST SENIORS Better Business Bureau The phrase ‘“grandparent’s” scam’ rings a bell for many people: a little old lady receives a call from her grandson, claiming that there’s an emergency and asking for money. The grandmother, worried sick, quickly wires over a large amount. Unfortunately, in reality it was all a scam and the grandson is perfectly fine; but the grandmother has lost a few thousand dollars to an imposter. This happened to my own grandparents just a few weeks ago – luckily a bank teller recognized that they were being scammed and stopped them from wiring money to a fraudster. This type of scam is common, and recent reports prompted the FTC to release a warning about the phenomenon. However, the term “grandparent’s” scam is a misnomer. The better term for this fraudulent activity is a “family or friend emergency”, or “family emergency impostor” scam, and anyone can be a target. In fact, seniors aren’t necessarily the ones that need to be worried. Although those over 65 reported three times more of these scams to BBB Scam Tracker than those under 65, seniors lost less than half the amount of money to the scam than younger folks did. This isn’t surprising – according to new research by the Better Business Bureau (BBB), seniors are less susceptible to scams than societal stereotypes suggest. People under 45 actually make up 69% of scam victims. It’s important for people of

all ages to be aware of the “family or friend emergency” scam because it can happen to anyone. Additionally, the median loss of $2,750 for this scam is the largest of all scam types. This scam plays out in a distinctive way. A “niece” or “nephew”, “grandchild”, “cousin”, “friend” or “child” reaches out to a friend or family member through phone or email, claiming there’s an emergency. They’re out of the country and something bad happened, they’ve been arrested or done something embarrassing, or they’ve been in an accident – and they need money immediately. They provide all sorts of reasons why you should pay in the moment and not tell anyone else about their predicament. According to the FTC, these calls are almost always scams no matter how convincing they sound. If you receive a call like this, you can attempt to verify the identity of the caller by asking for their birthday or middle name: this will often immediately discredit the scammer. The FTC recommends that you hang up and call the family member or friend directly, and never send money to someone who calls and asks for it. Report these scams, and all others, to BBB Scam Tracker at bbb.org/scamtracker and the FTC at ftccomplaintassistant.gov. It’s important to educate yourself and all of your family members and friends, not just your grandparents, about this scam: BBB research found that 80% of people say knowing about a scam helped them avoid becoming a victim.

Gaila is five years old and came to Happy Hollow from the Kansas City Zoo. Will Smith was born in the Bronx Zoo on July 4, 2015 (his name is a nod to Will Smith’s “Independence Day” movie). The Red pandas are part of the Species Survival Plan (SSP) Program. The SSP program was developed in 1981 by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums to help ensure the survival of selected species in zoos and aquariums, most of which are threatened or endangered in the wild. SSP works with the Red Panda Network, a San Francisco-based nonprofit that is committed to the conservation of wild Red pandas and their habitat through the education and empowerment of local communities. “Happy Hollow is so much more than just a park and zoo,” said Valerie Riegel, Zoo Director. “We believe strongly in conservation and education and these Red pandas are serving as ambassadors that will help ensure the survival of their species.” Thanks to a $1 million donation, Happy Hollow was able to take on several projects over the last 2+ years including exhibits in the lower zoo and renovating a habitat to bring in Giant Anteaters. Now Happy Hollow has built a beautiful new exhibit for Red Pandas, complete with a climate controlled indoor area, with lots of yummy bamboo and misters to cool Gaila and Will Smith as they lounge. “My contribution to the Happy Hollow Foundation was to be able to update some areas and bring new animals

to San Jose’s Zoo,” said donor, Patty O’Malley. “I’m thrilled that this has brought Red Pandas to San Jose.” Red pandas are unique because they are the only member of the family Ailuridae. Red pandas also serve as an indicator species for their temperate forest habitats in the Himalayas. This means that their presence or absence can give biologists an idea of the health of that habitat. Keeping Red Panda habitat healthy is important because it provides oxygen and clean water to both red pandas and people! Red pandas live in mountainous temperate forests in Nepal, India, Bhutan, Myanmar and China. But zoos, including Happy Hollow, help keep the population safe, healthy and protected from deforestation, poaching and other threats to their survival.

AVISO DE AUDIENCIA PÚBLICA RESPECTO AL FINANCIAMIENTO POR PARTE DE PENSINSULA CORRIDOR JOINT POWERS BOARD PARA EL PROYECTO DE ELECTRIFICACIÓN DEL CORREDOR PENÍNSULA POR EL PRESENTE SE NOTIFICA, de acuerdo a la Sección 6586.5 del Código de Gobierno de California, que a las 5:30 p. m. del jueves 6 de octubre de 2016, o tan pronto después de esa fecha en que puedan tratarse estos asuntos, la Junta Directiva (Board of Directors) de Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority llevará a cabo una audiencia pública en relación con el financiamiento propuesto para el Proyecto de Electrificación del Corredor Península, y dicho financiamiento (el “Financiamiento”) será realizado por la Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board (la “JPB”). La audiencia pública se llevará a cabo en las oficinas de la Junta de Supervisores, County Government Center, 70 West Hedding Street, San José, California, 95110.

Happy Hollow Park & Zoo Welcomes Red Pandas “Endangered species’ survival often depends on public interest - and funding,” said Heather Lerner, Executive Director of Happy Hollow Foundation. “Patty’s donation was the reason we were able to acquire Gaila and Will Smith and we hope that when more people get to see these fuzzy firefoxes we will be able to attract more major donors to San Jose’s Zoo and help protect more species!”

El Financiamiento será realizado por la JPB para financiar ciertos costos de conversión del servicio de trenes para pasajeros habituales Caltrain que opera entre San Francisco y la estación Tamien en San José de trenes impulsados por diésel a trenes eléctricos de unidades múltiples. La Junta Directiva (Board of Directors) de Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority considerará la adopción de una resolución que apruebe el Financiamiento propuesto por la JPB en su reunión regular el 6 de octubre de 2016 a las 5:30 p. m., en las oficinas de la Junta de Supervisores, County Government Center, 70 West Hedding Street, San José, California, 95110.

Cervantez Family of Silicon Valley Named Honorees Prestigious La Familia Award Hispanic Foundation’s honors them for their work on Immigration Rights

Earlier this month The Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley (HFSV) announced that this year’s La Familia Award will be presented to the Cervantez family of San Jose for their continued commitment to advocating for the rights of immigrants on a local, state and national level. The award will be presented to the Cervantez family at the 2016 Hispanic Foundation Ball which will be held on Saturday, October 22 at the Fairmont San Jose.

their roots and creating a better life for their family. Along the way though, they became impassioned community leaders in the immigrant’s right movement not just locally, but on a national level. The mother, Mayela has been an active SIREN (Service Immigrants’ Rights and Education Services) leader for the last 5 years, where she has recruited and led community education, and advocated for the rights of immigrants on the national, state, and local level.

The Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley is a philanthropic organization, focused on cultivating philanthropy to address community needs and invest in the success of the local Hispanic community. Its signature event, the Hispanic Foundation Ball (HFB), was conceived as a way to increase awareness about the issues affecting the Latino community and to celebrate giving and volunteering within it.

SIREN began as an ad-hoc coalition of immigrant rights activists and advocates in 1987 as a way to develop a Santa Clara County response to the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act. Since that time, SIREN has grown to include policy analysis and advocacy, community education, citizenship application assistance, and community and service provider trainings.

LA FAMILIA The Cervantez Family first came to the United States in 1997 from Mexico on a visit. During the vacation the family decided that they wanted to attempt to base their home in the United States because the town that they were from was too dangerous. Family patriarch Martin Cervantez is a landscaper by trade and matriarch Mayela Razo-Cervantez works at a day care center. Together they have two sons, Leonardo who is 17 years old and 15 year old Gerardo,

Mayela has led dozens of community forums in San Jose to prepare immigrants for the AB60 driver's license law, has been to Sacramento numerous times to advocate for immigrant friendly bills, and has organized her own community to advocate for issues that include public safety, health care, housing, and transportation.

development trainings for fellow immigrants that include organizing, media skills, public speaking, and policy. Martin also volunteers with SIREN under its Leaders team. He and his wife are part of the immigrant community who participate in a yearlong immigration training which includes leadership development, curriculum training and advocacy around policy and immigrant rights. Together Martin and Mayela underwent a 12-month training commitment that centered on political training, understanding how a bill becomes a law, public speaking, and media training.

throughout the year. Leonardo, a high school Senior, plans to be the first in his family to be a college graduate. He and his brother Gerardo are both involved members of the Luis Valdez Leadership Academy, the local charter high school which they both attend. Martin and Mayela also work with other parents at the Academy to focus on parent engagement to ensure that the parents are involved in their children’s education. The family is involved at St. Maria Goretti church, where Martin and Mayela are active community service leaders and are members of a prayer group.

THEIR CHILDREN The two sons Leonardo and Gerardo both serve as SIREN Youth Leaders, where they organize other youth to advocate for youth issues on the local level that include education, housing, and public safety. Both participate in a rigorous summer institute hosted by SIREN and must also participate in the same training as their parents in order to serve as SIREN Youth Leaders

“The Cervantez family is a shining example of when community passion, a calling for service and family roots come together,” said Ron Gonzales, President and CEO of the Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley. “Their story is shared by many in the Hispanic community; we are proud to have them as the recipients of the 2016 La Familia award

Her powerful story made it into the amicus brief for Supreme Court hearing on President Obama's Executive Action on Immigration. Each Supreme Court justice read her story prior to the oral arguments on the executive action this past spring.

THEIR STORY AND THEIR WORK The family’s story is one shared by many immigrants to the United States now and centuries before them. They arrived with the hopes and dreams of establishing

Mayela also led efforts to launch a new SIREN organizing program in Mountain View. She has volunteered her own personal time in the community recruiting new members, and spearheading leadership

GOVERNOR BROWN SIGNS BILL REDUCING BARRIERS TO BUILDING ADDITIONAL HOUSING SACRAMENTO, Calif. – State Senator Bob Wieckowski’s (D-Fremont) bill to reduce the barriers California homeowners face when seeking to build an accessory dwelling unit (granny flat) on their property will take effect this January after Governor Jerry Brown signed the bill today. Senate Bill 1069 is the most extensive bill on accessory dwelling units to be signed in almost 15 years.  The Governor signaled his support for the bill in principle during his revise of the state budget in May.   “Removing the most egregious obstacles to building these units will help to increase the supply of affordable housing in California and allow more people to remain in the communities they call home,” said Wieckowski, a member of the Senate’s Transportation and Housing Committee.  “SB 1069 returns more power to homeowners and reins in some of the enormous fees and requirements levied by local agencies.  Governor Brown’s action will lead to more housing, more jobs and shorter commutes.”    SB 1069 eases regulatory burdens by eliminating excessive sprinkler requirements, providing several exceptions to parking restrictions, such as if the home is located within a half mile from public transit, requiring ministerial approval

for the remodeling of existing homes and garages when they are compliant with building and safety codes, and making utility connection fees for brand new construction proportionate to the burden the accessory dwelling will place on the water or sewer systems. “Governor Brown’s signing of Senator Bob Wieckowski’s SB 1069 creates a powerful tool for addressing California’s housing crisis by removing barriers that have discouraged homeowners from adding affordable second units,” said Jim Wunderman, President and CEO of the Bay Area Council. “The Bay Area Council sponsored this bill because it has the potential to create thousands of affordable, accessory dwelling units statewide without any taxpayer subsidies. It’s a critical part of the solution to our state housing crisis.  We thank Senator Wieckowski for his leadership on this important issue, as well as all of our many coalition partners who advocated for its passage through the Legislature.”   The White House’s Housing Development Toolkit cited California’s actions to reduce barriers and called for allowing more accessory dwelling units to help meet the affordable housing challenge.   “Accessory dwelling units offer one solution to this challenge by facilitating

A 2015 University of California, Berkeley Center for Community Innovation study found a substantial market of Bay Area homeowners interested in building an accessory unit, but a significant number were deterred by unnecessary regulatory barriers.  Attesting to the economic benefits the bill will provide, the California Chamber of Commerce placed SB 1069 on its “ job

creator” list of state legislation.   SB 1069 is supported by a huge coalition, including the Bay Area Council, AARP, the California Housing Consortium, the California Teachers Association, the East Bay Leadership Council, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and a number of environmental and affordable housing organizations.   Senator Wieckowski represents the 10th District, which includes southern Alameda County and northeast Santa Clara County.

Los detractores afirman que se suponia que la elevacion del impuesto al ingreso en la Propuesta 30 fuera temporal, y creen que la economia creciente debiera significar que ya no es necesario ese aumento, que no se renovaria el impuesto de un cuarto de centavo a las ventas que tambien era parte de la Propuesta 30.

Farmworker Advocates Urge Suspension of Highly Toxic Pesticide Suzanne Potter California News Service SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Advocates say the nation's two million farmworkers deserve a safe place to work, free of hazardous chemicals, so they petitioned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on Wednesday September 21, 2016 to ban the use of a toxic pesticide called chlorpyrifos. The feds banned home uses of the insecticide in 2000 but have allowed farms to continue to use it to keep bugs away from crops such as apples, pears, nuts and corn. Patti Goldman, managing attorney with the Northwest Office of the environmental law organization Earthjustice, Earthjustice, which filed the petition, said American farmers use about 8 million pounds of chlorpyrifos a year, putting their employees' health at risk. Farmworker advocates are petitioning the EPA to ban the use of a widely used toxic pesticide in the fields.(Wasan Gredpee/iStockphoto)

"It's basically treating workers like second-class citizens, and so it's time to put an end to that delay and to protect

the workers and their families," she said. Chlorpyrifos is a nerve toxin proven to cause neurological deficits in children who live near the fields. In 2015, the EPA tried to negotiate with the pesticide industry to reduce its use or limit human exposure, but the talks failed. Advocates say they are prepared to take this issue to court if the EPA continues to drag its feet. Erik Nicholson, national vice president of the United Farmworkers Union, said the EPA needs to take regulatory action immediately. "The science is not in question," he said. "The big question is why is the federal government continuing to allow this dangerous pesticide to be used in the production of the food that we're eating." Nicholson added that protective clothing isn't enough to keep farmworkers safe because chlorpyrifos poisons the air, the food and the soil around them.

Nominada a dos Latin Grammy’s este año, Morrison sigue su pasión para conectarse con la gente atreves de su música que emoción y impulso siento que es otro disco, estamos hablando de otras canciones, de otro momento. Se siente muy lindo.

En tu opinión que ha sido la respuesta de los fans por todo el mundo a tu música? Y específicamente el álbum Amor Supremo?

Podrás darnos un vistazo al proceso de la creación del álbum Amor Supremo?

Pues gracias a dios ha sido muy linda muy abierta, con este disco siento que a pasado un cambio que me ha abierto mucho oportunidades alrededor del mundo que no esperaba. Porque es un sonido un poco más universal creo que la gente lo ha aceptado en una manera muy abierta, con una mentalidad abierta. Mas sin fronteras, la respuesta ha sido increíble,como Italia, como Alemania, c omo muchos luga re s que yo no imaginaria que escucharan mi música. Se refleja en las ventas, en los comentarios, en los seguidores, en muchas cosas. La gente ha aceptado el disco, en cuanto el sonido, en cuanto el show me da mucho gusto porque si ha sido un disco y una etapa que hemos trabajado con muchas ganas y con mucho cariño. El hecho de que la gente lo reconozca y lo acepte y lo celebre y lo quiera es muy especial para mi, y pues hay estamos dándole como siempre. Nos ha ido muy bien, muy especial.

El disco lo hice en Playas de Tijuana, (y) fue hecho en alrededor de 8 meses. Es un disco que estábamos más tiempo en tranquilidad entonces fue muy especial para mí hacerlo porque para mi era otra vez volver a empezar de nuevo, apostarle a nuevas ideas y nuevas canciones y lo mezclamos con un ingeniero increíble que se llama Claudius Mittendorfer en Nueva York. Fue todo hecho en independencia, creo que le agrega mucho sabor a esto. Todo ha sido trabajo a pulso, a emoción, a ganas de hacer música diferente. Todo ha sido muy orgánico, entonces para mi es muy especial y muy simbólico. Hacer este disco de esa manera orgánica con (productores) Alejandro Jiménez y su hermano Demian Jiménez, con muy poquita gente involucrada, buscando una propuesta nueva, un sonido nuevo, explorando a mi misma, toda la situación a sido super especial. Cuando materializa una canción o concepto nuevo, que es tu proceso de creación? Cortesia: Carla Morrison

Arturo Hilario El Observador Recientemente tuvimos la oportunidad de conversar con cantante mexicana Carla Morrison, cuyos temas musicales reflejan elementos universales del amor y la alegría, pero también los aspectos tenebrosos y tristes, respaldado con sonidos de pop, guitarras acústicas y lo experimental. Ademas de tocar en festivales como Coachella y Ruido Fest en Chicago en 2016, esta a este momento en su Amor Supremo Tour a qu í en los est a dos unidos. En esta entrevista que sigue hablamos sobre su nuevo álbum, la razón por gustarle ser artista y cuando recientemente despertó a la noticia de ser nominada a dos Latin Grammy's. Hola Carla , mucha s g ra cia s por la entrevista. Primeramente, felicidades en la nominaciones de Latin Grammy's.

El álbum Amor Supremo y la canción “ Vez P r i mer a” e s t á n nom i na do s a Best Alternative Music Album y Best Alternative Song, respectivamente. Como te sientes a oír el anuncio? Muchas gracias. Pues me siento muy bien, me siento contenta, no eran nominaciones que esperaba, y pues me desperté con la noticia y estoy muy contenta. Más que nada el reconocimiento es muy bonito, y creo que tenerlo de una academia tan importante es muy bonito y me siento muy feliz y contenta. Tu Album Déjenme Llorar del 2012 fue el primer a acumular nominaciones al Grammy. Como fue diferente en esta ronda? (Siento) mas en calma al final del día. Creo obviamente la primer vez que me nominaron fue muy especial porque era la primera vez que me nominaron y era la segunda con tantas nominaciones. Ahora ya viví la experiencia ahora más

Yo creo que en realidad cuando me pongo a componer es muy orgánico, trato de que pase muy naturalmente y de una manera natural, que no sea sentada af lojada escribo una canción, sino realmente ponerme y estar en el momento indicado para crearla la canción indicada. Por lo general compongo mucho del amor, es un tema que nosotros compartimos pero también muchas veces no compartimos porque hay miedo de ser señalados y para mi es muy especial que la gente se siente acompañada y comprendidos porque vivimos en un mundo lleno de preguntas sin respuestas y sentirse comprendido, aunque a la mejor no es la respuesta es algo super especial.

Que aspecto, o aspectos te gustan mas sobre ser artista, crear música, embarcar en tours, etcétera? Pues lo que más me gusta es compartir con la gente lo que me pasa, compartir con la gente momentos, emociones. Me gusta mucho saber que componer una canción que a mi me gusta mucho, que la gente se sienta identificada que se sienta acompañada. Cuando vamos a Coachella, cuando vamos a lugares especiales que todo mi equipo vaya conmigo, que celebremos juntos, que estemos contentos porque es algo que todos hemos querido por mucho tiempo. Quiero compartirlo con la gente que me rodea y quiero porque se que es difícil el camino y en tenerlos juntos me gusta mucho el show, me canta el performance. Lo disfruto mucho.

“para mi es muy especial que la gente

se siente acompañada y comprendidos porque vivimos en un mundo lleno de preguntas sin respuestas..”

DEEPWATER HORIZON

SEPTEMBER 30-OCTOBER 6, 2016

that took the lives of 11 workers. Filmmaker Peter Berg once again collaborates with Oscar® nominated actor Mark Wahlberg sharing an untold story of men & women, real life heroes, who faced extraordinary consequences with extreme bravery. The pair previously explored a Navy SEAL team mission gone wrong in the Oscar® nominated LONE SURVIVOR, and the duo is currently filming PATRIOT’S DAY, the story inside the dramatic events leading up to and after the Boston Marathon bombing. In DEEPWATER HORIZON, Mark Wahlberg is joined by an incredible cast including Kurt Russell, John Malkovich, Gina Rodriguez, Dylan O’Brien and Kate Hudson to bring audiences directly into, not only the events, but the charged human drama and acts of valor beneath them. Wahlberg takes on the role of real-life Transocean chief electronics technician Mike Williams, a devoted family man who was overseeing the rig’s computers and electrical systems on April 20th, when everything he imagined could go wrong ... did. Oil rig workers are a notoriously tough and gritty breed. The work is physically punishing and ultra high-pressure – as workers grapple with complex equipment approximately 60feet above remote seas. Yet even for Williams, what happened that day was unprecedented. Williams knew the work was desperately behind schedule, but he also knew the

Deepwater Horizon had sophisticated defenses said to be able to prevent even the worst blowouts. Nevertheless at 10 p.m. that night, volatile methane shot up into the rig, and all the rig’s defenses failed. The result was a sudden, deadly explosion and a series of fireballs, as the shattered rig and its crew were shaken, hurtled and drenched in combustible gas. From that moment on, Williams was in a race to save his own life and those of his crewmates – each driven by the hope of making it home -- in an escape that seemed to defy all the odds. For Berg, the story’s themes were vivid stirring and a chance to shed light on an event most often talked about in terms of the environmental, rather than human, impact. “I’m drawn to tales of human courage and of the human spirit trying to triumph over real adversity -- and those elements are the heart of this story,” says Berg. “The men and women aboard the Deepwater Horizon were extremely intelligent and capable and they tried everything they could to prevent the blowout. It’s important to remember that 11 people lost their lives on the rig, and more were injured. In the middle of all the deserved attention for the oil spill, that heroism has almost been lost. This film is a chance to tell that story.”

Gina Rodriguez is rig worker Andrea Fleytas in Deepwater Horizon

On April 20th, 2010, one of the world’s largest man-made disasters occurred on the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico. An insatiable demand for fuel has brought oil companies into ocean depths where humans have never before dared to labor, bolstered by new high-tech equipment capable of plunging thousands of feet below sea level, operating where humans can’t go, amid shifting sands and hazardous pockets of explosive gas. It’s a brave new world of exploration for the oil industry, but on April 20, 2010, the dangers of that world became devastatingly clear. On that day, the Deepwater Horizon, an ultra-deep-water, advanced oil rig owned by the Swiss company Transocean and leased by British Petroleum was drilling deep in a well named Macondo about 40 miles off the Louisiana coast. Suddenly, the crew faced the greatest fear of all ocean rig workers: a ferocious blowout, caused by pockets of unstable methane shooting up the pipes with deadly force. Though equipped with a blowout preventer that included an Emergency Disconnect System (EDS), both failed to contain the blowout. The initial blowout killed 11 men who were never found, critically injured others and sparked a bold evacuation of men and women trapped amid roiling mud and fire. After two days of searing flames, the remains of the Deepwater Horizon sank 5000 feet to the ocean floor, leaving the well gushing beyond

control, ultimately releasing, according to government estimates, 4.9 million barrels of oil.

The film follows a vital story that many have not seen: the story of the 126 crew members working aboard the Deepwater Horizon that day, caught in the most harrowing circumstances imaginable. They were skilled working men and women putting in a grueling shift in the hopes of getting back soon to families and lives ashore. In an instant, they were faced with their darkest hour, pushed to summon the courage to battle an unstoppable inferno blaze in the middle of the ocean, and when all seemed lost, to save one another. The ultra deep-water drilling rig off the Louisiana coast – the Deepwater Horizon – riveted the world as it experienced a devastating blowout, fire and nearly unstoppable ocean floor oil leak. For 87 days millions watched, hearts in mouths, as more than 50,000 barrels of oil a day gushed from the sea floor into the Gulf of Mexico. It would become the largest accidental ocean oil spill in human history. The impact to marine life and the questions of what went wrong and why are ongoing. DEEPWATER HORIZON brings that story to the screen with a gripping glimpse into the unseen world behind the global disaster

Snap Spectacles, Glass for the Masses Are We Ready for New Video Recording Behaviors? The ability to use your hands while recording what you were seeing was the only cool thing about Google Glass. Sadly, for Glass users (ultimately known as Glassholes for how pretentious it looked to wear them in public), Google did not provide compelling or emotionally satisfying software to process or distribute the stills and videos you took with Glass. The purpose-built design of Spectacles for Snapchat solves that problem handily.

Shelly Palmer Glassholes, rejoice! Your hopes and dreams are about to be fulfilled by a $129 pair of video-recording Spectacles that its creator calls a “toy.” But while they are going to be super-fun to play with, Snap Inc.’s Spectacles are a serious brand extension for the company that created ephemeral visual conversation. So Long, Snapchat, We Hardly Knew Ye Snapchat has just renamed itself Snap Inc., and Evan Spiegel, its 26-year-old CEO, has a well-reasoned argument for the change. He wants to free Snapchat from the shackles of your smartphone camera lens. The company’s website says, “Snap Inc. is a camera company. We believe that reinventing the camera represents our greatest opportunity to improve the way

people live and communicate. Our products empower people to express themselves, live in the moment, learn about the world, and have fun together.” Spectacle Specs Like previous versions of video-recording eyewear, Spectacles look like a pair of glasses. They have a video camera with a 115-degree-angle lens positioned right next to your eyes – so every video is shot from your point of view. But unlike a GoPro or your smartphone camera, you don’t need to experience the world while holding a camera in front of your face. You simply tap the side of your Spectacles to initiate a 10-second video recording, and it is automatically transferred to the Memories section of your Snapchat app, where you can decide to use it or delete it at your convenience.

Snap Inc. hasn’t released much more information about Spectacles, except to say that they will be available sometime this fall. I can’t wait – although to Evan Spiegel’s point, most of us will only be able to “play” with them. Even though a ring around the Spectacles camera illuminates to warn subjects that they are being recorded, past a “certain age,” you won’t just be considered pretentious; you will have evolved all the way to creepy. New Video Grammar for Video Conversations VVS (vertical video syndrome) was a thing a few years back. Old schoolers had a hard enough time understanding why almost every smartphone camera picture was shot in portrait mode. The idea that people would purposely shoot video with a portrait (vertical) aspect ratio invoked bar arguments about Oxford commas, Rock being the “devil’s music” and the “death of the English language” due to social media abbreviations and initialisms, ROTFL. But over the past few years, something interesting has happened. Not only have vertical portraiture and videography become commonplace, the camera position (arm fully extended for a selfie, or bent at the elbow for rear-facing imagemaking) and the ergonomically-imposed compositional choices have created some new rules of video grammar. Snapchat was a powerful driver of this evolution. Spectacles records images with a 115-degree-angle lens in a circular format. This technological decision will make images appear more closely related to the way your eyes naturally perceive the real world. Which raises the question, “Will this new image-capture format and the accompanying 10-second duration spawn yet another video grammar revolution?”

It’s way too early to tell, but if Spectacles are treated more like a Snapchat extension and less like a toy, it won’t be long before music videos and TV commercials start mimicking or simply using them. The Singularity Isn’t That Near Google Glass failed for so many reasons (not the least of which was its $2,000ish price point), it is impossible to make real comparisons here. But one overwhelming issue with Glass will also be an overwhelming issue with Spectacles. Lots of normal people are going to feel they invade their privacy. While 2040 is the median accepted date for Ray Kurzweil supplicants who believe that humans and machines will evolve into transhumans, most people are just going to be bugged that someone has the ability to make an unfortunate video of them without their knowledge or consent. There’s really no way around this. Some objections will be cultural, others will be behavioral, but either way, general acceptance of pseudo-transhumancamera-people is going to be a heavy lift. Kudos to Snap Inc. Evan Spiegel is a product designer’s product designer. And his attitude about getting Spectacles to market quickly “because it’s fun” should be an object lesson for every CEO. Kudos to the entire team at Snap Inc. Oh, and BTW, I’d like to order 50 pairs to give out as holiday gifts. Author’s note: This is not a sponsored post.

players, they have these creative ways of going around players on the field,” says Maria.

Look up any YouTube video of street soccer, freestyle or “panna” and you'll get a seemingly endless amount of results, many of them with millions of views.

Made up of quick 3 minute games, usually 1 on 1 makes the games a feat of skill as the goal is to nutmeg, or dribble through an opponents legs. “If you neg someone that's an automatic knockout. On the freestyle side the unique part of it is the entertainment tricks. The juggling of the ball, all this creative but very difficult tricks. You don't use your hands at all, and you’re doing these gymnastic, aerial type of things with the ball. It's unique as far as coming to Northern California and the US in general, because it’s not really well known in the US.”

A mix of street soccer and highly technical and speedy footwork, the sport is wildly popular in other regions of the world. In the Bay Area Maria and Louie Mata are trying to get people to watch it live. “My husband's always been involved in soccer, he's been playing since he was 5 years old,” says Maria Mata. She and Louie run the Bay Area based Soccer in Slow Motion, a company that specializes in informing, teaching and bringing together people to learn more about this branch of soccer. Louie has had a lot of experience with soccer, playing at the professional level as a goalkeeper with the San Jose Grizzlies, as well coaching an olympic development team and playing games in Mexico in partnership with the Mexican Consulate of San Francisco.

Unlike the many organizations that promote traditional soccer in Northern California, their was a vacuum for the alternative type of soccer, which the Mata's filled.

Some of these players are heavyweights in the freestyle world, some these being the aforementioned million+ view YouTube videos. Maria says that at the end of the day, the professionals make the tournament a very positive and open experience for fans new and old. “Since the first year we’ve been really lucky to have one of the original players, Edward van Gils, they call him 'the godfather of street', as one of the judges . We have two time world freestyle champion female, Melody Donchet as well. We don’t have the players hidden in the back, they want to be part of the atmosphere so they love to interact with the crowd, it will be great for anyone who's there. It’s something that you don't see very often and that people should come and check out.”
