CHANGES NEEDED IN THIS ELECTION ARE CRUCIAL

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR The Vice-Presidents Debate I just watched revealed nothing new. It is an extreme dis-service to the American registered voter and all others not to present their public policy proposals. In my mind, the two most important public policy matters to be transformed into legislation which President can sign into law are: 1) Comprehensive Income Tax Reform and 2) Comprehensive Immigration Reform. The recent N.Y. Times exposure (10.02.16) of Trump's $916,000,000 tax deductions which legally enabled payment of no taxes for 18 years really exemplifies the current unfairness of the IRS tax codes. It does not seem fair nor appropriate, yet it underscores the need to deal with all types of corporate welfare writeoffs which are not available to ordinary wage earners. Now what is really needed is Comprehensive Income Tax Reform. Income tax disparities exist along with many forms of 'corporate welfare'. The current Republican majorities in both

the House and the Senate consistently do nothing for “We, The People”. Congress does increase tax credits and lower tax rates for the top 1% who now benefit from the 'trickle down economic theory' which simply never has worked, except to benefit those already very wealthy and influential. If income disparity is to be addressed at all, it is essential that a bipartisan approach to the formation of a more equitable tax process be enacted. Alternatives exist: Value Added Tax (VAT); Flat Tax Rates; and a 'Sales Tax Rate” or a reasoned blend of tax approaches. One simple requirement is essential: NO ONE ESCAPES PAYMENT OF A FAIR SHARE OF TAXES which are essential to the continued support and development of American infrastructures. It has been the will of this nation to support security, health and welfare which enables the highest standard of living on this earth. The continued erosion of tax support will destroy this nation's standard of living and its civil freedoms. Organizations advocating Comprehensive Immigration Reform need to understand that no reform will happen until those are identified who profit by exploiting undocumented immigrant labor who have no legal standing. Since

1986 EO has advocated for the establishment of legal standing for undocumented labor because they do work at lower wages with no benefits which forces our own indigent labor to do the same work at lower wages with minimum benefits. There is no reason for those who profit from this situation to favor any form of immigration reform. Moral and ethical issues do not influence those whose minds are focused upon their 'bottom line' profits while ignoring the need to acknowledge and accept some responsibility for community stewardship. Agribusiness, hospitality enterprises, and manufacturing firms all benefit from access to low cost labor. In fact that is why so much former manufacturing in America has gone offshore where lower cost labor can be found. Time Magazine's September 26, 2016 issue contains Teresa Berenson's article entitled “The Latino Economy: Hispanics Provide Crucial Economic Growth in the U.S.” In this report whose subheading is HOW LATINOS DRIVE AMERICA'S ECONOMIC GROWTH” (p.32) is a compilation of information which all Latinos need to know: “In 2015 U.S. Hispanics controlled $1.3 Trillion in (consumer) buying power

(which) is equal to the GDP of Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala and El Salvador combined.” Hispanics are projected to become 52% of all new home ownerships during 20102030; 47% Growth...From 2007-2012, Latinos launched new small businesses at a rate 60 times higher than that of non-latinos; 1 in 4 new Toyota Corollas sold in the U.S. are bought by Hispanics; 31% of all businesses in South Florida are owned by Hispanics; (The) projected $784.69 'back to school' spending by the average Hispanic household this year outpaces the overall household average of $673.57; and 137% (is) The growth rate in Latina owned businesses in the last 9 years, a larger rise than that of any other woman owned minority group in the U.S.” Mass deportation of Hispanics is not going to happen because this Hispanic economic activity would be severely impacted if the Trump proposal to deport all undocumented immigrants from the U.S. were to be implemented. Those who profit from Hispanic consumerism ($1.3 Trillion) as well as low cost Hispanic labor will not support Trump's deportation policy.

possible if all Latinos vote. That is what those in power and influence fear, respect, and respond thereto. Latinos in California have an opportunity to elect a Latina Senator who has 20 years of Congressional legislative experience. Her name is Loretta Sanchez who is able to speak to the Latino family immigrant experience. And who will support the three or four U.S. Supreme Court nominations made by the next Democratic President. The next Democratic President of the U.S. needs a Democratic Senate. In the County of Santa Clara 510,000 will vote by mail beginning October 11, 2016 (total voter registration is about 860,000). This election ballot is massive...National elections; 17 CA State Measures; State Assembly, County elections and measures; and civic elections and measures. Take the necessary time to discuss your policy concerns with trusted friends and associates; refer to the League of Women Voters Palo Alto (a non-partisan group of very high integrity whose motto is “Making Democracy Work”). But Democracy will not work without each individual's vote being cast and counted.

The Latino voter must vote his/ her value system. This nation needs to see the magnitude

Detengamos juntos el VIH Por José López Zamorano Para La Red Hispana

de acuerdo con las cifras oficiales de los CDC.

El slogan de la campaña anual coordinada por los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC) para alentar a todas las personas que viven en Estados Unidos, desde la adolescencia hasta la tercera edad, a prevenir el VIH y crear un frente común dentro de nuestras familias y comunidades, es certero porque hablar del tema debería convertirse en cosa de todos los días, en un hábito positivo, para nuestra comunidad.

Si consideramos que nuestra comunidad latina sigue teniendo una de las tasas más bajas de acceso a atención médica, que millones de indocumentados carecen de seguro de salud y que las barreras culturales y de lenguaje siguen siendo un problema, no es difícil entender porque estamos siendo afectados desproporcionadamente por el VIH.

En vísperas del Día Nacional Latino para la Concientización del SIDA, este 15 de octubre, más de 1.2 millones de personas en los Estados Unidos viven con el VIH, de los cuales más de 150,000 no lo saben,

Cada año, alrededor de 45,000 personas son diagnosticadas con el VIH. Lo más preocupante es que una de cada tres de esas infecciones, son transmitidas por personas que no han sido diagnosticadas con el virus que causa el padecimiento. El inicio de una la conversación sobre el VIH es no sólo el primer

paso, sino quizás uno de los más importantes, para prevenir y reducir la diseminación de la enfermedad. Cuando hablamos abiertamente sobre el VIH con nuestras familias y amigos, podemos superar el estigma y allanar las barreras para hacerse la prueba y, eventualmente, tener un diagnóstico temprano que abre la puerta a una vida más tranquila y saludable. Te proteges no sólo tú, sino todos a tu alrededor. No hay nada de qué preocuparse: la prueba es fácil, rápida y confidencial. Para personas VIH positivo, pueden acercarse a los tratamientos médicos para mantenerse saludables y vivir largo tiempo. Siempre es bueno recordar que el VIH dejó de ser una condena de muerte, pero debemos hacernos responsables de nuestras acciones e informarnos de los

recursos disponibles. Entre septiembre y octubre celebramos los latinos de todas las edades el Mes de la Herencia Hispana. Qué mejor manera de festejar nuestros avances como comunidad que convirtiendo la prueba del VIH en una tradición anual, un signo de nuestra madurez y un festejo de la salud y de la vida. Detengamos juntos el VIH es posible, pero hay que dar ese primer paso.

Rural Advocates Push for Better Internet, More Opportunity for Kids Suzanne Potter California News Service SACRAMENTO, Calif. - More than half of rural America doesn't have broadband service, and often, little or no access to the Internet at all, so rural advocates are issuing a call to action. The National Rural Assembly said its highest priorities for small-town America are better Internet access, improved opportunities for young people, and playing a bigger role in fighting climate change.

One priority for the National Rural Assembly is better Internet access in rural America. (Max Kohler/iStockphoto)

More than 50 million Americans live in rural communities, which make up more than 80 percent of the country's land mass. The National Rural Assembly is a coalition of more than 500 organizations. It has dubbed its new campaign "Kids, Climate, Connection" (http:// ruralassembly.org/). Assembly chair Dee Davis said kids from small towns are an untapped resource, and they need to be convinced that there are good reasons to stay in their communities.

Sean McLaughlin, the executive director of Access Humboldt in Eureka, is a founding member of the Assembly's rural broadband group. He said large swaths of northern and eastern California lack a fast Internet connection, strangling commerce and putting students at a disadvantage.

"There's a lot of opportunity in rural communities for restoration economies, that is, fixing things that are broken," he said. "Maybe they're dealing with issues of pollution, illness or addiction. Young people can be of service; they can make a real difference."

"You have no way to get your homework done," he said. "It's really quite a handicap for education, particularly for students who are trying to apply to college; economic opportunities, to find jobs."

Davis said those young people will be part of inventing the new industries the country will rely on in this century, particularly in developing wind and solar energy to help fight climate change.

Prop 55 Campaign Revs Up to Extend Taxes for School Funding

Suzanne Potter California News Service OAKLAND, Calif. - The campaign promoting Proposition 55 is ramping up, with supporters taking to the phone banks, walking the precincts and holding campus events, including one that occurred on Tuesday September 27, 2016 at Laney College in Oakland. Prop 55 would keep the temporary state income-tax increase in place for wealthy California households that was approved as part of Prop 30 and set to expire in 2018. It generates an estimated $7 billion a year for public education. Ed Jaramillo, president of the Peralta Federation of Teachers Local 1603, said

that eight years ago - prior to Prop 30 schools from kindergarten to community college saw devastating cutbacks. "This helps fund programs for the students," he said. "Also, it relieves a lot of the pressures on the districts. Previous to Prop 30, there were layoffs and class cuts." Opponents have contended that Prop 30's income-tax hike only was supposed to be temporary, and they believe the improving economy should mean it's no longer necessary. The quarter-cent sales tax that was also part of Proposition 30 would not be renewed. Meredith Brown, a trustee at Laney College, said California schools are just now getting back to where they were before

the recession. She said she thinks it would be foolhardy to jeopardize the progress that's been made. "We're trying to meet the needs of a growing society and our industry," she said. "It will help us mitigate the impact of a future recession, as we are growing and improving the programs that we can offer to our students."

Brown estimated that the Peralta Community College District alone, which includes four colleges in the East Bay, would lose $3 million a year if Proposition 55 doesn't pass. Ballotpedia's explanation of Prop 30 and Prop 55 tax rates is online at <ballotpedia. org>.

5 MONEY TIPS EVERY TEEN SHOULD KNOW:

5

Build financial smarts in your teen with these tips BUILD GOOD CREDIT Money decisions you make even now as a teenager will make a difference later. Good credit is essential to getting a good rate on a car loan or leasing an apartment later on. That credit score is an indication to future lenders that you are responsible and will pay on time. To build good credit, always pay your bills on time and carefully manage your checking account. If you choose to get a credit card, never charge more than you can afford to repay in full each month. GET A REALITY CHECK Before graduating high school and going out on your own, it's important to sit down and get a solid idea of what it takes to make ends meet while living the lifestyle you want. Look for a financial education program geared for teens.

BPT For most teens, high school is an exciting time for those sweet, first tastes of independence: first dates, first cars, first paychecks. As low-stakes as some of these milestones may seem, there's one area that deserves some extra attention in every family: personal finance. Today's teens are spending $260 billion a year in the U.S., yet only 17 states require completion of at least one financial literacy course for high school graduation. Consider the fact that 3.3 million high school students are expected to graduate in 2017, and what we have is too many young adults heading out into the real world lacking even a basic understanding of money management. "That means today's young people are spending and borrowing more than ever without understanding the consequences," says Wendy Kha, a San Francisco teen who was selected by Boys & Girls Clubs of America to serve as national ambassador for its teen financial literacy program called Money Matters: Make it Count, created in collaboration with Charles Schwab Foundation. Taking part in this program had a profound impact on Kha, along with over 725,000 other Club teens who have completed Money Matters. As an advocate for teaching financial responsibility, she offers a few tips for parents and teens. SAVE EARLY, SAVE OFTEN As soon as you start earning money or receiving an allowance, you should open a savings account. Parents and teens can decide together how much of the earnings should be set aside for savings.

"Whenever you earn or receive money, put at least 10 percent of it into a savings account," Kha says. "I personally set aside 25 percent of my income from my part-time job to help me save up for big-ticket purchases, such as concert tickets and cool electronics, as well as college tuition." NEEDS VS WANTS When something fun comes up at the last minute it's hard to say no, and even harder to face the idea of missing out. The best thing teens can do is prepare for situations that lead to impulse purchases. Start by making a list of needs and wants. Each month, plan for the things you need, and figure out how much is left over for the fun stuff. If you know ahead of time that your car insurance is coming due, you will be less likely to spend all your money on concert tickets. KEEP TRACK OF SPENDING Now that you're aware of how much you need for necessities and what's left over for the fun stuff, it's time to start keeping track of everything you spend. It doesn't matter if you use cash or a debit card, and it doesn't matter if you keep track with an app or a small notebook. Just be sure to log every single purchase. Even small things, including the taco from the food truck or trail mix from the vending machine, should be entered into the log. Being mindful of every dollar you spend will help you understand your spending habits - and help you find ways to reduce your spending and save even more. "You can avoid impulsive, emotional or irrational decisions if you recognize them in advance," Kha says.

A good one will cover budgeting, goal setting and planning for the future. For example, Kha learned a lot from one component of Money Matters called the Reality Store, a hands-on experience that helps teens envision the realities of adult life understanding careers and salaries, managing income and expenses as well as planning savings and investments. These lessons are also reinforced in a new interactive feature of the program - a digital game called $KY. Players navigate financial decisions and are rewarded for managing cash and credit wisely, adding a fun new way to learn these important life skills. "It's a lot to digest," Kha says. "But I know when I head off to college, my eyes will be wide open, and that will help me make better money decisions."

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: POSTNATAL NUTRITION ADVICE FOR NEW MOMS

WATER: Drink at least eight cups of water a day. Other good liquids are juice, milk, broths, herb teas and soups. Limit your intake of highly caffeinated drinks such as coffee, tea and some sodas to eight ounces a day. Exercise and high temperatures will increase your need for liquids.

SATURDAY- 5:30PM

KNTV/KSTS-SAN JOSE, SAN FRANCISCO, OAKLAND NAPS Pregnant women spend loads of time worrying about every aspect of their baby’s development, starting with their nutrition. But here’s some food for thought: After your little one finally arrives, it is no time to let the cookie crumble. Sure, you’re exhausted, irritable, and moving 100 miles per hour, but postnatal nutrition is just as important, especially when you are breast-feeding. But good news: There’s no reason to stress about it—that’s what a prenatal vitamin is for! Although it’s called a “pre”-natal vitamin, a new mom should continue taking her supplement during this “post”-natal period, especially if she is breast-feeding, to ensure she and her baby get the nutrients they need. Here are some specifics you need to know about your daily intake: PROTEIN: You should have two to three servings of protein a day; about three or four ounces of meat,

fish or poultry. The Food and Drug Administration, however, recommends that nursing mothers not eat shark, swordfish, king mackerel and tilefish because of their high mercury content. CALCIUM: The suggested daily intake of calcium for breast-feeding mothers is 1,300 milligrams per day. The best sources of calcium are milk, yogurt, hard cheeses, calcium-fortified orange juice and calcium-fortified tofu. One cup of milk or yogurt contains 300 milligrams of calcium. IRON: The suggested daily intake is nine milligrams from meat, poultry, some seafood, dried beans, dried fruit and egg yolks. Extra iron from your prenatal vitamin will help prevent anemia. VITAMIN C: Nursing mothers need slightly more vitamin C than they did during pregnancy, about 120 milligrams a day. Vitamin C can be found in citrus fruits, broccoli, cantaloupe, potato, bell pepper, tomato, kiwi, cauliflower and cabbage.

Governor Brown Signs Major Step Towards Citizen-Funded Elections SACRAMENTO, Calif. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; On Thursday September 29, 2016 Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill giving all Californian jurisdictions the right to give their citizens a bigger voice in democracy by changing the way election campaigns are financed. SB 1107 amends California's antiquated ban on public financing of campaigns to allow local governments and the state to pass their own systems for citizen funding of election campaigns to magnify the voices of small donors and everyday voters. SB 1107 was authored by Senator Ben Allen and coauthored by Senator Loni Hancock and Assemblymembers David Chiu and Lorena Gonzalez. Sponsored by the California Clean Money Campaign and California Common Cause, SB 1107 allows public financing of campaigns in California elections if they're paid for by dedicated campaign finance trust funds and are "available to all qualified, voluntarily participating candidates for the same office without regard to incumbency or political party preference". "Californians are demanding greater accountability from their elected officials, and rightfully so. Anything we can do to empower communities to reduce the influence of money in campaigns is a good thing", said Senator Ben Allen, author of SB 1107. SB 1107 passed the legislature with bipartisan support. Republican Senators Anthony Canella (R-Ceres) and Bob Huff (R-Brea) and Assemblymembers Catharine Baker (R-San Ramon), Ling Ling Chang (R-Brea), and David Hadley (R-Torrance) all deserve great credit for standing up for the voices of regular voters against special interests, as do all the Democrats who voted Yes. Senate President pro Tem Kevin

de Leon (D-Los Angeles), Senator Robert Hertzberg (D-Van Nuys), Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Los Angeles) and SB 1107's author Senator Allen (D-Redondo Beach) and Assembly floor manager Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego) also deserve special commendation for their leadership in passing More than 57,000 Californians signed petitions urging Governor Brown to pass SB 1107, and thousands more called Governor Brown and their legislators. A coalition of 40 state and national organizations weighed in for the bill, contributing an additional 50,000 petition signers from across the country urging California to lead. Besides SB 1107 sponsors California Clean Money Campaign and California Common Cause, organizations that actively worked to pass SB 1107 included: California Church Impact, California Labor Federation, California League of Conservation Voters, California School Employees Association, CALPIRG, Courage Campaign, Daily Kos, Democracy for America, Every Voice, Friends of the Earth, GMO Free USA, League of Women Voters of California, Money Out Voters In, People Demanding Action, People For the American Way, Progressive Democrats of America, Sierra Club California, Represent. US, and Voices for Progress. "Californians are crying out for reform of our broken campaign finance system, as shown by the tremendous outpouring of support for SB 1107," said Trent Lange, President of the California Clean Money Campaign, co-sponsor of SB 1107. "We're very grateful to Governor Brown and the bipartisan legislative leaders who made its passage possible so that Californians can explore citizen funded elections systems that give regular voters a stronger voice against big money special interests."

The California Association for Postsecondary Education and Disability (CAPED) named Eagleman based on his one-on-one multisensory tutoring in the Disabled Students Programs and Services (DSPS) and in the Veterans Resource Center on campus.   “I can usually find a way to help students get the most out of their classes.” said Eagleman, who uses his over 30-plus years of teaching at the college and high school level to tutor in both math and science. “I use my extensive knowledge of how we intake and store information, as well as the effects of several learning disabilities and brain injuries (to

help them learn).” Eagleman, who is hearing impaired, reads lips rather than using an interpreter, uses live captioning in his physics courses and uses special camera equipment to help him with visual challenges. He also uses a power chair to get around campus.   For 12 years, a constant companion was Cooki, who fit snuggly into the front of his now famous overalls. Cooki, a trained service dog, could smell when Eagleman produced too much insulin and alert him. Cooki recently passed away.   Eagleman is currently on a service animal wait list and has set up a Go Fund Me page to assist in the cost <tinyurl.com/hyojqt7>. Eagleman prefers to train his own service dog due to his unique circumstances.   The award ceremony is later in Monterey.

The Battle to Permanently Protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge Roddy Scheer & Doug Moss EarthTalk The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), located on Alaska’s northeast coast, has been a conservation-versus-development battleground for decades. The 1.5 million acre coastal plain at the foot of the Brooks Range where the land meets the Arctic Ocean is the crown jewel of the 19 million acre refuge—and a magnet for iconic Alaskan wildlife like caribou, polar bears and wolverines. But oil interests say the coastal plain is covering huge oil and natural gas reserves and should be drilled for the sake of the U.S. and Alaskan economies. Some 250 wildlife species consider ANWR home, while another 180 species of birds migrate through every year (from all 50 states and beyond). The coastal plain itself

is a birthing ground for the region’s iconic caribou herd and also provides safe haven and sustenance for hundreds of other marine and terrestrial species. Environmental advocacy groups cite studies showing that industrial operations would deter animals from the area, robbing them of one of the last protected areas to raise their young. Beyond biological pragmatism, conservationists argue that opening the refuge up to drilling operations would set a dangerous precedent, potentially opening the door for similar pressures on federal wilderness areas and even in national parks. Some of the key defenders of ANWR include the Alaska Wilderness League, Defenders of Wildlife, EarthJustice and others. The other side champions the economic

potential of the region. Alaska Governor Bill Walker has strongly supported drilling operations in ANWR, a stance shared by Alaska’s federal representatives. A 2007 Yale study showed the potential for $374 billion dollars of oil beneath ANWR. This would be vital income for the state government, which relies heavily on oil and gas tax streams for its budget. Alaska politicians say they need the extra revenue to pay to relocate climate refugees from villages inundated by rising seas. “We are in a significant fiscal challenge,” Alaska’s Republican governor Bill Walker told the BBC. “We have villages that are washing away because of changes in the climate.” Nationally, supporters of drilling also cite economics: Every barrel of oil produced domestically puts tax money in the national coffers and creates local jobs. Shell has been the major commercial supporter of opening the refuge, though 78 percent of Alaskans share the sentiment. The state legislature has passed

But that doesn’t mean ANWR is safe from development. Inside the Washington DC beltway, the Republican-dominated House passed a dozen resolutions in support of opening it up to oil exploration in the last session alone—although Democratic filibuster efforts were able to block any such legislation. Meanwhile, Senate Democrats Michael Bennet (CO), Ed Markey (MA) and 32 Democratic cosponsors introduced legislation last December calling for permanently designating the most sensitive sections of ANWR as wilderness off limits to development. With bigger fish to fry right now, lawmakers might not consider the legislation until a new President is in office, but backers of protecting ANWR can urge their Senators to support the bill via an easy-to-send customizable online form letter courtesy of the non-profit EarthJustice.

PERÍODO DE COMENTARIOS PÚBLICOS: DEL 4 DE OCTUBRE DE 2016 HASTA EL 4 DE NOVIEMBRE DE 2016 ¿CUÁL ES LA PROPUESTA? Se presentó un Proyecto de Plan de Acción de Remoción (RAW, por sus siglas en inglés) al Departamento de Control de Sustancias Tóxicas (DTSC, por sus siglas en inglés) sobre la planta de la ex Moyer Chemical Company (en adelante, Moyer) ubicada en 1336 Old Bayshore Highway en San José, California 95112 (en adelante, el Sitio). El proyecto de RAW resume la investigación realizada en el sitio y describe las alternativas de limpieza, y está disponible para que el público lo revise y haga comentarios al respecto. La alternativa de limpieza recomendada encapsulará la tierra contaminada con altos niveles de metales, pesticidas, compuestos orgánicos volátiles e hidrocarburos de petróleo totales, retirará los productos sin petróleo y controlará las aguas subterráneas. Los controles institucionales en la forma de un convenio de utilización serán registrados con el Condado de Santa Clara. El Sitio de aproximadamente 2.4 acres se utilizó para fines agrícolas a fines de la década de 1940 y luego fue utilizada por un fabricante de pesticidas (Moyer) hasta 1965. Entonces, el Sitio fue ocupado por Howard Electric hasta 1981, cuando fue vendido a la San Jose Concrete Transfer Company, actual propietario del Sitio. LEY SOBRE LA CALIDAD AMBIENTAL DE CALIFORNIA (CEQA): por sus siglas en inglés): El DTSC ha determinado no habrá un impacto significativo sobre la comunidad o el ambiente en asociación con el proyecto. Por lo tanto, el proyecto está exento de los requisitos de CEQA y se ha preparado un Aviso de Exención (NOE, por sus siglas en inglés).

NORMAND LATOURELLE

A Dream Meeting Between Human & Horse

end of the show the bottom of the stage gets filled with 40,000 gallons of water. Then the horses are playing in the water. In addition, the arches support 800 tons and part of that is the merry go round that comes down to the stage and you have the acrobats on the merrygo-round. So it’s very hard to describe because it's so unique, supported by live music and very moving, very colorful, a lot of fun and a lot of interaction with the public and the performers. Obviously there’s no such show, whether you’re 4 years old, 40 years old or 94 years old that you can take the entire family. It’s very peaceful and that’s what’s also very important. You get to see horses just running and having fun, the stage is their playground. You don’t see whips. We don’t force the horses, we just reveal their natural behavior by doing stuff that’s incredible to watch. F i n a l l y, w h a t i s s ome t h i ng you h av e learned in your career about horses that ha s stayed w ith you? Ha s it k ind led a relationship through your work with them?

Arturo Hilario El Observador Normand Latourelle has been in the arts for 40 years. Apart from being a co-creator of Cirque du Soleil, his life long passion for productions and artistic reinvention has led him to produce greatly admired works involving horses. His latest work, Cavalia: Odysseo, is now at the big white tent visible in Downtown San Jose. We spoke with the Artistic Director for his take on what makes this show special, in his own words. How did you get to where you are Normand? Well you know I’ve always done shows my whole life, I'm from Montreal, Quebec Canada. I started to do shows in high school and never stopped. I started in the music industry more and moved slowly to more modern production and I'm one of the co founders of Cirque du Soleil. After I left Cirque du Soleil I wanted to do something a little bit different and this is why I started to explore the horse world an try to integrate the equestrian arts into the performing arts and I created the show called Cavalia. This show Cavalia was created 15 years ago, it’s still touring actually, now touring in China. Where did the inspiration for an equestrian type of show come from? In Canada I had to create for a special celebration some kind of historical show, and part of this historical show I needed to a few horses to perform on stage, mostly as ‘extras’. This show went on for two years and when the horse was coming on stage I realized he

was stealing focus from the performer. And that attracted my attention and I thought, well that’s interesting, I know nothing about horses but I started to explore the horse world, I went to a lot of events with horses, I went to travel almost all around the world to see what those animals were all about. I realized that the history of horses was pretty much linked with the history of humanity. And I realized horses were domesticated animals, as much as dogs. So I tried something artistic, because that’s what I do. I didn't want to do a horse show, I wanted to do a new type of performing arts with horses, I knew that I was going to be difficult to achieve, but I knew it would be possible if I did it the right way so I worked for many years to conceive how I could do something very artistic, very beautiful with horses. This is how Cavalia got started, and it immediately had a lot of success. For this new show, Odysseo, you've completely redone the idea with a new focus. Can you describe it? The Cavalia stage limited me on what was possible to do. This is where I created Odysseo, the stage and the big top. This is not a regular big top. With the Odysseo my goal at first was as good or even better than any of the shows done in Las Vegas. With a touring show that brings a lot of challenge, but I’ve created the biggest touring big top in the world. It’s made of four gigantic masts and arches. These arches support the the stage. The stage I call 'the first and one and only big show in the world'. We reveal it by layers so at first you feel like you’re in the middle of the forest then it disappears and then you see a real mountain top 33 feet high. Beyond the mountain we have a screen that is two times an IMAX size. So at the

horses, partly because I knew nothing about it. The idea that you should be subtle with the horse, you should not have them do what they don’t want to do, take our time to train horses. Most people in the horse world use the horse like a machine, they use the same way you use a tractor. This is not what it is. They are creatures they, have their temper they have their sentiments. They have their way of thinking and way of living. You have to understand we use what they like and we push it to the maximum so they are performing but in the reality they are playing. That’s the mentality behind it. There’s one rule here and that is very important for everyone that works in Odysseo and Cavalia, the horse never make mistakes, only humans make mistakes and if the horse doesn’t do what you ask you didn’t make yourself understood. And this is a very different way that we are using to train horses. And that is what is making part of the beauty in this show, you come to just see happy horses. Cavalia: Odysseo is in San Jose until October 30th, 2016. More info at <cavalia.net>.

Yes sir, I'm not a rider, I'm not a horse trainer (but) I have a fantastic team, and I brought the horse world a new idea on how to train

IMMIGRATION CORNER DAPA & EXPANDED DACA UPDATE

By Raul Ray, Esq. All across the country, undocumented immigrants have been anxiously waiting and holding out hope that the Obama deferred actions programs better known as the Expanded DACA and DAPA programs would take affect before the end of the year. On Monday, those hopes were dashed away when the U.S. Supreme Court denied the Obama Administration’s request for a rehearing in United States v. Texas to be held after the U.S. Senate confirmed a ninth Supreme Court Justice leaving intact the High Court’s 4-4 split decision in June. Now it’s uncertain whether the Expanded DACA and DAPA programs, which could affect millions of people seeking the chance to live in this country with dignity, respect and the opportunity to achieve the American dream, will ever be implemented.

The expanded DACA program was set to start on February 18, 2015 and the DAPA program was anticipated to start in May, 2015. However, on February, 16, 2015, federal district judge Andrew S. Hanen, citing procedural grounds, stunned the Obama Administration by granting an injunction and halting the implementation of both programs. A panel of the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals voted 2-1 to uphold judge Hanen’s ruling. Then the Supreme Court handed down its 4-4 split decision in June leaving in place the lower court’s decision preventing the immigration programs from going into effect. William A. Stock, President of the American Immigration Lawyers Association commenting on the Supreme Court’s refusal to rehear the case noted, “By refusing to rehear the case when nine justices are in place, the Supreme Court has

once again allowed state governments to block federal policy initiatives with which they disagree. While this decision continues the harm caused to millions of American children and their families by Judge Hanen’s injunction, its effect on future federal-state relations may be what is most pernicious. As a result of the decisions in this case so far, future presidents of both parties may find their actions in a host of policy areas blocked by governors of the opposing party. However, this case is far from over. Once a more complete record of the merits of Texas’ claims is created, we are confident that when the case is once again back on the Supreme Court docket, the Court will show appropriate deference to the executive branch and not legislate from the bench by enjoining this program permanently.” The Obama administration had hope that the Court would agree to rehear the case before a full panel of 9 justices that would include a new justice nominated by Obama and confirmed by the U.S. Senate upon recommendation by the Senate Judiciary Committee. Wishing thinking perhaps especially given the Republican controlled Senate Judiciary Committee’s reluctance to hold any hearings for Supreme Court judicial nominees until after a new president is elected. While the 2014 Obama deferred action

OCTOBER 7-13, 2016 programs apparently will not be moving forward anytime soon, there is still hope for the future as the legal challenges to these programs continue to be litigated in the Federal district court in Texas. It’s not inconceivable that the case could eventually make its way back to the U.S. Supreme Court where hopefully it will be heard by a full panel of justices at that time. The latest Supreme Court decision does not affect Obama’s original DACA program commenced in 2012. Eligible undocumented immigrants can still obtain the benefits of this program. Applicants granted deferred status pursuant to DACA 2012, can continue to renew their DACA status every two years unless the new president halts the program, or a new lawsuit is brought challenging the legality of the original DACA program. Remember contact ONLY a qualified immigration lawyer or an accredited representative for legal advice or immigration relief concerning your case. We will continue to keep you apprised on the very latest immigration news around the country.

SOÑANDO EN LA REALIDAD: MARIO JIMÉNEZ CASTILLO

Como el autor de temas místicos a ayudado a la gente explorar y analizar sus vidas en nuevas formas, con métodos antiguos místico en ellos, que el vio como maestros por su inclinación a lo espiritual. El agrega, “conocí así el camino y me sentía atraído por el significado de los sueños, por la devoción a los santos y también me sentía muy atraído por las situaciones sobre naturales, las cosas paranormales.” Después de emigrar a los estados unidos a 24 anos de edad, se puso en moción notando lo que había aprendido hasta entonces. Dice Jiménez, “ya que me moví a los estado unidos comencé a escribir cosas así, como tener un journal y escribir cosas sobre el tarot, sobre la religión Wicca. Pase unos dos tres años escribiendo hasta que lo fui ordenando todo para ser un libro que yo publique con mi propia cuenta en el año 1999. Ese libro me sirvió como un demo para mandar a las editoriales.”

Arturo Hilario El Observador Mario Jiménez Castillo es un escritor viviendo en la área de la bahía que lleva a sus lectores como un guía a comprender el mundo de los sueños, la religión, el misticismo y lo sobrenatural. Escritor con nuestra publicación por 17 anos, Jiménez es autor de cinco libros que enfocan en lo que el llama las ciencias antiguas de astrología, el tarot, y religiones como Wicca y santería. Sus experiencias con todas estas costumbres y practicas son la razón que sus libros se leen por todo el mundo. Originalmente de Santa Ana, El Salvador, dice que sus fascinación con los sueños y lo espiritual empezó a tener raíz entre la realidad de la guerra civil en su país. “Cuando estaba pequeño, ya ve vivo en un país que tuvo una guerra civil por 15 años y una navidad recuerdo que soñé que mi familia corría peligro, como que algo estaba pasando. Tenia unos 7 o 8 años. Un mes después de haber tenido ese sueño pasamos mi familia desgraciadamente un peligro de muerte en esa época.” Esta experiencia, ademas de su cercanía a su abuela Gladis ayudaron a formar la curiosidad de ref lejo en las varias escuelas del pensamiento espiritual. “Ella hacía rezos en su casa los sábados, invitaba a muchas personas y era muy devota a los santos, le gustaban las cosas místicas,” dice Jiménez. En la adolescencia Jiménez conoció personas interesantes que tenían algo

Escribió en diferentes periódicos que buscaban autores de columnas espirituales y en esos pasos se encontró con una editora, Maria Andrade de el periódico La Oferta, que le dio la información de un editorial que tal vez le podría dar la oportunidad a Jiménez a publicar sus diarios de información de los sueños. “Y así fue como llegué a la editorial Llewellyn.” Ahora en su 3a edición de Diccionario de los Sueños sigue siendo el libro mas popular de Jiménez. “Esta 3er versión es la versión actualizada de la primera. El mundo va cambiando, en ese año no existían los mensajes de texto, los drones, las redes sociales, muchas cosas que son parte de nuestra vida ahora, y pues tuve la idea de añadir muchas situaciones nuevas a este nuevo libro.” Una cosa que Jiménez quiera aclara con la gente es el propósito y la historia sobre las costumbres que el estudia y de que escribe. “Existen muchas teorías sobre los sueños pero básicamente ha habido sueños que pueden hasta cambiar el mundo porque el tema de los sueños es un tema que viene de muchas miles de años atrás. Si vamos al capítulo 40 de el libro de Génesis, se cuenta la historia de José, él siendo un esclavo en Egipto llegó a convertirse al hombre más importante descifrado unos sueños que había tenido el faraón.” También agrega Jiménez que en la practica escolar se usan las cimientos de los sueños. “Sigmund Freud fue alguien que escribió un libro sobre sueños que todavía los estudiantes de psicología y psiquiatría tienen que leer porque es el padre de la psicología. Los sueños tienen que ver mucho con nosotros, con lo que sentimos, lo que callamos aveces, lo que necesitamos, nuestros miedos, esperanzas. Muchas veces

situaciones se ref lejan en nuestros sueños porque nos quieren decir algo.” Sus libros tocan los temas de lo bueno y lo malo de la vida, y miles de experiencias que afectan a la humanidad a lo diario. Por esto es que su trabajo es muy importante para Jiménez. “Para mi lo importante es transmitir lo que yo e aprendido, lo que yo he estudiado, lo que yo e experimentado. Creo que los libros que escrito ahí eh traslado mi propias vivencias. Pienso que puedo tal vez ayudar a las personas un poquito, en algunas cosas, en tomar decisiones, pienso que es estar dando un poco de mi experiencia a las personas que me lean.” Ademas de escribir para la gente, Jiménez lo hace para documentar su propio pensamiento y significado de la vida a través de las prácticas y lo bueno que proviene de la aceptación de las religiones

y las diferentes formas de pensar. “Siempre hay que buscar la verdad en las cosas, siempre hay que profundizar. Si sientes que en ese tema no hay nada que te convenza pues déjalo y busca otra cosa. Pienso que todas estas ciencias antiguas como lo astrología, metafísica, tienen mucho de cierto.” Ahora que es autor, dice el por gracias a sus lectores, seguirá intentando a explicar, explorar y educar a los que quieran descubrir el mundo de los sueños y lo místico. “Hay que dejar a un lado la superstición. Mi mensaje de la gente es que se profundicen en los temas pero que siempre busquen ser bien a las demás personas, o hacerle bien al mundo.” Los libros de Mario siguen de venta en tiendas de libro y por Amazon.

““Muchas veces situaciones se reflejan en nuestros sueños porque nos quieren decir algo.”

¿DÓNDE DIO INICIO LA INTERPRETACIÓN DE LOS SUEÑOS? Mario Jiménez Castillo El Observador

liberación y restauración a su antiguo puesto en el lapso de tres días.

Uno de los relatos más antiguos en el que se hace referencia a los sueños, lo encontramos en la Biblia en el capítulo 40 del Génesis, allí se relata la historia de José hijo de Jacob, quien fue traicionado, vendido y abandonado por sus hermanos en Egipto. Después de singulares trances, José fue a dar a la cárcel por culpa del despecho de una hembra que no había podido obtener de él favores de alcoba. Durante su estancia en aquel calabozo, José se había bien ganado la reputación de ser un interprete de sueños. Sucedió una mañana en la que dos prisioneros (un servidor de copas y un panadero que habían disgustado al mismísimo monarca egipcio) se le acercaron y comenzaron a relatarle lo que habían visto en sus sueños la noche anterior.

El segundo había soñado con tres canastas repletas de panes, frutos y exquisiteces de las cuales degustaba el faraón, de pronto observó unas aves que comían de aquel festín sobre su misma cabeza y de aquella escena solamente el faraón era testigo.

Uno de ellos soñó con tres ramitas que brotaban flores, frondosas uvas, una copa y que nuevamente servía la mesa del faraón, entonces José descifró el sueño como una buena nueva que presagiaba su pronta

El mensaje onírico para el panadero no era tan benévolo como lo fue para el servidor de copas, en realidad fue funesto porque José le pronosticó que en tres días sería colgado. Después de las interpretaciones de José, a ambos reclusos solamente les quedaba esperar. Sucedió pues que al tercer día se celebraba el onomástico del faraón y justo como José lo había pronosticado, así fue el destino del servidor de copas y del panadero. El que se salvó le prometió a José que nunca se olvidaría de él y que le hablaría al faraón de aquellos dones únicos de real visionario. Dos años más tarde José continuaba descifrando visiones nocturnas y repartiendo buenas nuevas en el calabozo

hasta que un buen día retornó el servidor de copas, le sacó de la prisión por orden explícita del faraón, le cambio de vestimenta, le bañó, perfumó y lo presentó ante su majestad como << el profeta de los sueños>> En aquellas fechas el faraón había tenido sueños que le inquietaban en demasía, los interpretes del saber onírico y magos de su séquito no tenían respuestas ni podían descifrar los sueños de su amo. Al presentarse José ante el faraón, éste le miró fijamente a los ojos y desde ese instante José le transmitió la verdad y la grandeza que encerraba su espíritu. Se dispuso en aquel momento el faraón a relatar sus visiones. En el primero de los sueños el faraón observó siete vacas saludables y hermosas que ascendían en la rivera del Nilo, de pronto aparecían otras siete vacas de aspecto deplorable, flacas y enfermas, y sucedió que las vacas flacas comenzaron a devorar a las vacas gordas. En el segundo sueño había contemplado siete espigas frondosas y doradas por el resplandor del sol, de pronto observó otras siete espigas muy secas que comenzaban a crecer y devoraban a las espigas frondosas. Al concluir el faraón su relato, casi de inmediato José se dispuso a descifrar el mensaje de los sueños que le causaban

Vienen en camino siete años de gran abundancia, riqueza como en sus tiempos más gloriosos han de cubrir a todo Egipto, pero inmediatamente llegarán siete años de gran escasez y hambruna, la riqueza que un día ha de conocer la región será borrada por aquella tremenda carestía que ha de sufrir todo tu pueblo. José era muy joven en aquel entonces, aun así se mostró dispuesto en aconsejar al faraón. Le recomendó que durante esos siete años maravillosos se guardara la quinta parte de todos los granos, cereales y víveres, que se nombrara a un hombre discreto y de gran sapiencia para que se encargara de aquella magistral obra. De modo pues que el faraón decidió nombrarlo a él mismo como el hombre en quien se depositaban los destinos de los habitantes de Egipto. El pueblo te obedecerá José y tú gobernarás en Egipto, solamente en el trono estaré yo más arriba que tú. Palabras textuales del faraón. José realizó un trabajo extraordinario durante los siete años de abundancia, justo cuando éstos acabaron, una gran carestía y miseria se hizo presente no solamente en Egipto sino en toda la comarca. José salvó con sus predicciones a toda una civilización.

Digital Monoculturalism: Small Changes, Big Impact

Shelly Palmer While Waze leads us to our destinations via the quickest route, our dependence on this kind of decision support system may also be the quickest route to a monocultural society. You’ve said the word “algorithm” a thousand times this year, and you may have even written out your algorithmic goals in English, but have you ever coded an algorithm? Do you really know how any AI model is performing? What tiny mistakes (or purposeful small changes) are being made to subtly guide our decision-making? HUMANS ARE INCREDIBLY BAD DECISION-MAKERS To make a good decision, you have to properly assess risk. Sadly, people almost always improperly assess risk. For example, you have a one in 11 million chance of being in a plane crash, but you have a one in 272 chance of being killed in a car accident on the way to the airport. You have a one in 20 million chance of being killed in a terrorist attack, but you have a one in 300 chance of being assaulted by a firearm. By the numbers, cars and guns are far more life threatening than planes and terrorists. So it should be easy to find people to advocate for spending cuts on anti-terrorist programs in favor of funding programs to reduce gun violence. But, without a clear understanding of the risks we face each day, our decisions are controlled by our hearts, not our heads. That said, every decision is not emotional. We are often called upon to make conscious decisions, and confirmation bias aside, we have developed some statistical tools that can increase our odds of success. In his book The Wisdom of Crowds, James Surowiecki explains how to use a diverse collection of independent thinkers for decision-making. The book opens with a story about a crowd at a country fair. All of the people in the crowd were asked to guess the weight of an ox, and while none of them got the correct answer, the average of all of the answers was closest to the ox’s actual weight. Importantly, this methodology actually requires individuals to think independently. If the individuals are influenced by expertise, group dynamics or other types of bias, the results will be skewed.

WE’VE SET THE BAR PRETTY LOW FOR AI In an “observe and react” architecture, AI systems can use algorithms that loosely mimic a “Wisdom of Crowds” approach. If the AI system just makes “pretty bad” decisions (as opposed to “incredibly bad” decisions), the improvement will be measurable. But as we start to build interactive man/machine partnerships, things are going to change. If only a few people were driving around in cars with relatively accurate traffic congestion maps, they would benefit from the knowledge and enjoy an alternative, and presumably quicker, route. However, the overall impact of AI on the larger traffic system would be negligible. But I just logged on to Waze, and there are over 53,000 Wazers around me. All Wazers are seeking the fastest route to their respective destinations, and Waze is doing its best to help them. Are we all being sent via the best route? The better Waze gets, the more people will use it, and the more we use it, the smarter Waze will become, until … we are totally dependent on Waze to get us where we need to go. With 53,000 vehicles around New York City being “routed” by Waze, the impact on the larger traffic system is material.

even notice that in the process, we devolved our diverse, multicultural world into a collection of distinct digital monocultures. AI will sort our news feeds (it already does), our entertainment choices (it already does), our way-finding (it already does), and the energy efficiency of our homes and offices (it already can, but it is not widely deployed); make our financial decisions (it mostly does); make our medical decisions; make our business decisions; and probably make our political decisions too. The list of potential AI applications is bounded only by need and imagination.

I DON’T KNOW WHAT I DON’T KNOW

About Shelly Palmer

I’m not really worried about rogue computers threatening our lives. I’m worried about the small number of programmers and coders charged with realizing the financial and political goals of their patrons. Could a ubiquitous social network skew or even direct an election? Could a traffic control system delay certain people from getting to work on time? Could an AI-enhanced financial services company deny loans or insurance due to zip code or race because it is the “best outcome” based on its programming? Could we train the AI that controls our news,

I can imagine a world filled with digital monocultures, isolated from one another by feedback loops. Cognitive computed comfort zones will be much worse than our self-crafted comfort zones, worse because we won’t know that as a few artificial intelligences strive to algorithmically optimize our lives, it will be at the cost of our incredibly bad human decision-making. Which I’m sure we’re going to miss.

As AI and machine learning improve, more people are going to benefit, and through our interaction with the machines, the AI systems will make better decisions for us and in turn become more and more popular. And then it will happen: a small number of AI systems (most likely the aforementioned “Partnership on AI” group) will be making most of our decisions for us. We might not

Defenseman Dan Boyle Announces His Retirement

Veteran Blueliner and His Family To Reside in Northern California

San Jose Sharks SAN JOSE, CA - Defenseman Dan Boyle formally announced his retirement from the game of hockey on Wednesday, October 5, 2016 , completing 17 stellar seasons in the National Hockey League - six of which he spent as a member of the San Jose Sharks.   Boyle played in 1,093 NHL games with Florida, Tampa Bay, San Jose and the New York Rangers, scoring 605 points (163 goals, 442 assists) and 693 penalty minutes. He was a member of Tampa Bay's 2004 Stanley Cupwinning team and appeared in 130 Stanley Cup Playoff games, adding 81 points (17 goals, 64 assists).   "Today, I would like to formally announce my retirement from the National Hockey League," said Boyle.  "I've been fortunate and blessed to have had the opportunity to do what I most love to do.  All I wanted to do as a young boy was have the opportunity to play ONE game in the NHL. Over a thousand games later, this whole experience seems surreal. I want to thank all four organizations for the opportunity, my teammates and the FANS for this amazing run that I will cherish forever."   Amongst all-time NHL defensemen, Boyle finishes 35th in overall scoring, 31st in goals and 38th in assists. His 72 power play goals ranks T-29th all-time and his 2,231 shots in 36th among all NHL blueliners.   Amongst active NHL players, Boyle retires as the leader in points and assists amongst all NHL defenseman and is third in goals, second in shots and fourth in power play goals.   Between 2002-03 (Boyle's first full season with Tampa Bay) and 2013-14 (Boyle's last season with San Jose), only Niklas Lidstrom produced more points (516) than Boyle (502) and only Zdeno Chara (145) and Shea Weber (131) scored more goals (129) amongst all NHL defensemen.   A two-time NHL All-Star (both with San Jose; 2008-09, 2010-11), Boyle was also

named as an NHL Second Team All-Star in 2006-2007 and 2008-09. He was in the top-15 for Norris Trophy voting six times, including fourth (2006-07), fifth (2008-09) and sixth place (2009-10) finishes.  He is one of only four defenseman in NHL history to serve as the leading point scorer for two different franchises;   Paul Coffey (EDM 669, PIT 440) Al MacInnis (CGY 822, STL 452) Scott Niedermayer (NJ 476, ANA 264) Dan Boyle (TB 253, SJ 269)   Undrafted out of Miami University, Boyle's 1093 NHL games ranks 10th all-time among all undrafted NHL players (4th among defensemen) and his 605 points ranks 15th amongst all players (3rd among defensemen).   Acquired by the Sharks on July 4, 2008 from Tampa Bay, Boyle played in 431 games with San Jose - his longest tenured NHL stop - and scored 269 points (68 goals, 201 assists).  He remains the franchise's leading point scorer amongst defensemen (Brent Burns is second with 240), first in assists and power play goals, second in goals and shots (1,095).   In 62 Stanley Cup Playoff games with San Jose, Boyle posted 48 points (11 goals, 37 assists), good for fifth all-time in franchise history and first amongst defenseman.   "Dan's statistics and his accomplishments speak for themselves and we congratulate him on a remarkable career," said Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson. "As an undrafted player, he was consistently told that he wouldn't play in the NHL but his determination and passion for the game proved many people wrong. Those traits, along with hard work, helped him become one of the League's best defensemen over the last 25 years.  We're excited that Dan, Amber and their family have chosen to return to Northern California and we welcome them back into the Sharks family." Boyle, his wife Amber, and their two daughters, will reside in Northern California.
