The most urgent need in all sectors of commerce, high tech industries, and information technology is those individuals who have the skills to be RELATIONSHIP WORKERS. During the recent past, educators have devised the Common Core Curriculum; government and industry want more STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) workers; add the Arts to come up with ‘STEAM’. In addition, 48 of 58 categorical education programs were realigned down from Sacramento to the local school boards. Some school districts have even stopped teaching students cursive writing altogether. How will they sign their employment agreements; mortgages &

Luisa Fernanda Montero LA RED HISPANA El paso de los años trae consecuencias; enfermedades como el Alzheimer, la demencia senil, vascular o cualquier otro tipo de demencia pueden afectar radicalmente la vida de nuestros adultos mayores, y aunque no nos sea grato, debemos saber cómo enfrentarlo. El Alzheimer, particularmente es una enfermedad del cerebro que causa problemas de memoria, afecta la capacidad cognitiva, genera problemas de comportamiento, empeora con el tiempo y no tiene cura. Actualmente de acuerdo con datos de los Centros de Control de Enfermedades – CDC – es el tipo más común de demencia, en Estados Unidos más de 5 millones de personas viven con ella.

loan documents? It is no wonder that students and their parents are confused and probably seriously disoriented. What in the world is going on in education? All these soon require “knowledge workers”; the latest is ‘RELATIONSHIP WORKERS’. Keep in mind that none of the above ‘advocated emphasis’ is possible without having the basic learning skills of reading, writing, and math along with a knowledge of languages which enable communications to enable coordinated schedules of work or events. Quite often, professional educators do not want the student’s parents involved because they complicate matters. Often parents are concerned with job skills and economic reality. What is education all about? It is about preparation of the child’s mind to be able to function and thrive using information and knowledge about the economy, its governance, and society.

Los síntomas de la enfermedad, suelen aparecer después de los sesenta años y aunque pueden presentarse en personas más jóvenes, esto es poco común. Actualmente los científicos no han logrado determinar sus causas exactas, pero cada vez hay más indicios de que los factores de riesgo que generan problemas del corazón, la presión o el colesterol altos, pueden aumentar el riesgo de padecer de Alzheimer. De igual modo, muchos estudios sugieren que la adecuada actividad física, mental y social de un individuo juega un importante papel a la hora de atrasar su aparición. Por eso, no sobra reiterar la importancia de llevar un estilo de vida saludable, alimentarse sanamente, hacer ejercicio y seguir las recomendaciones médicas. En el caso de los hispanos según el informe

Fareed Zakaria: Global Public Square, MSNBC, at 7:00 AM, Sunday, October 4, 2015, reported that Australia “announced a bold eucharistic curriculum change in their schools. When children are about 12 years old, they will learn how to write computer programs. Coding will be given much more prominence...in contrast to history or geography which will be removed as ‘stand-alone subjects’. Meanwhile, in Japan, humanities and social sciences are either closing or scaling back at 26 national universities according to “Times Higher Education”. Before we start firing all the history professors, let’s examine the ideas behind all these moves. It is certainly true that today’s high-tech economy needs people who are computer savvy. Code.org, a group that has been pushing computer sciences in schools, has estimated that by 2020 there will be 1,400.000 computer jobs in U.S.A., but only 400,000 computer science students to fill them; leaving 1,000,000 jobs unfilled. Is it

smart and intellectually rewarding to understand how computers work?”

Hechos y Estadísticas sobre la Enfermedad de Alzheimer 2010 de la Alzheimer’s Association – Asociación de Alzheimer, el riesgo de desarrollar el Alzheimer en los hispanos es 1,5 veces mayor que en los norteamericanos blancos no hispanos. Hay una tasa mayor de hispanos/ latinos que blancos no hispanos en los Estados Unidos que padecen del Alzheimer.

¿Cuándo preocuparse? La pérdida de memoria suele ser uno de los primeros signos de alerta y, de acuerdo con los expertos, además de olvidar cosas una persona con Alzheimer puede tener cambios de humor o personalidad, dificultad a la hora de lidiar con el dinero o de realizar las actividades cotidianas a las que estaba acostumbrado, pero una de las cosas más delicadas que puede

“But, success at work and in life is much more complicated than simply learning to code.” Fareed Zakaria’s book: ‘In Defense of Liberal Education”, shows how important the liberal arts were in teaching students how to be creativity, innovative, analytic thought and the joy of learning. All of which are needed even in the high-tech world. Just think of Steve Jobs. A recently released book: “Humans are UnderRated”(author: Jeff Colvin) explains that studying the humanities could actually be as valuable as having a science degree in the future; perhaps even more so. Colvin points out that it is anybody’s guess which jobs may be automated next, from driving cars to food preparation, but human needs will always insist that some jobs be done by other human beings, even if computers are capable of doing those jobs. These jobs, that will emphasize social interactions, are go-

Por eso existe “Silver Alert” un sistema de alerta público que informa sobre las personas perdidas – especialmente adultos mayores con Alzheimer o cualquier tipo de incapacidad mental para regresarlos a casa en el menor tiempo posible. “Silver Alert” usa diferentes medios – como emisoras comerciales y estaciones de televisión abierta o cable para hacer pública la información sobre personas perdidas.

Cuando se cree que la persona perdida estaba caminando – no conduciendo -, la alerta usa el sistema del 911 para notificar a los veci-

ing to be the jobs of the future. Humans are social animals. That humans beings are connected to each other is basic to their very survival. That is why we would prefer to see a real human doctor for a diagnosis rather than a computer. Or prefer to work in teams with other humans not just computer monitors. Because of the need to interact with others, the most valuable workers of the future will be ‘Relationship Workers’, more so than the knowledge workers of the 20th century who may likely be replaced by computers. The demand for relationship workers has been on the rise already. From 2001 to 2009, jobs involving human interaction, like nurses and lawyers, went up by 5,000,000 in the U.S.A. (McKinsey; Global Institute), compared to transaction or productions jobs, which went down.” “So what is the best way to train youth to be ‘Relationship Workers’? Colvin says “science and technology disciplines are still crucial, but far more

than engineering and computer sciences, the humanities strengthen and deepen the human ability that will be critical to the success of most people.” “For example, reading fiction having complex characters and stories, trains us to observe and empathize with other people. Which is why many medical schools are requiring their medical students to read fiction to become better doctors.” “To repeat: Coding and Computers are important. But the jobs of the future and life in the future will be about how technology interacts with human beings. And for that, one needs all kinds of knowledge, scientific as well as humanistic.” Since families are the basic building block of communities, parents, who are the legal guardians and ‘first instructors’ of their offspring, must be involved and included if we are to have effective essential relationships.

OCTOBER 09-15, 2015

Sacramento CALIFORNIA A measure to protect students from being placed in less challenging mathematics classes – even though they meet the academic requirements for more challenging courses – was signed into law Monday by Governor Jerry Brown. SB 359 authored by Senator Holly J. Mitchell will take effect January 1, 2016 and requires public school districts to develop and adhere to performance and assessment-based standards for assigning youths to math courses by the start of the 20162017 school year. The legislation is a first step in remedying the growing problem of “math misplacement,” which can impede a capable student’s progress both in learning math and advancing toward higher education and career goals. A 2010 Noyce Foundation Pathways study had found that African American and Latino students, in particular, were improperly held back in nine Bay Area school districts despite having demonstrated proficiency on state standardized math tests. “Kids deserve the best shot we can give them at success,” said Senator Mitchell (D-Los Angeles). “Yet too many students who are working hard to build the skills they need to be successful in our economy are being prevented from doing so.” While California increasingly relies on jobs and revenue from its science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) industries, that sector depends on the state to provide a trained workforce. Yet a 2014 Brookings Institution report, among others, shows that there are not enough qualified STEM workers. African Americans and Latinos hold fewer than four percent of the jobs at the six largest Silicon Valley tech companies. Given that nearly 60 percent of California’s children belong to those ethnic groups, while technology jobs are projected to grow by 22 percent in the state over the next five years, opening a career pipeline for children of color into STEM careers is crucial for both them and the state. “The Governor’s action today marks a significant victory for everyone involved in working to end the disturbing practice of math misplacement in our schools,” said Dr. Emmett Carson, President and CEO of Silicon Valley Community Foundation, sponsor of SB 359. “Now that districts across the state will be called upon to establish fair, objective and transparent mathematics placement policies, we can better assure that our education system is designed to give all children a fair chance to succeed.” With the link between math misplacement, technology worker shortages and persistent poverty now clearly visible, California cannot afford to allow students who are demonstrating they can overcome challenges in their backgrounds to lose earned places in high school mathematics.

Cinta fuerte, reforzada, para rasgar, adherir y listo they are the key to our success. In order to move the company forward, we have to strengthen internal communication within the company and take care of our employees, so in return they provide the same great service and attention to our customers.

Arturo Hilario EL OBSERVADOR When did you join Mi Pueblo? I joined Mi Pueblo as President and CEO in June 2014, shortly after the company exited bankruptcy. I was brought on board to develop a plan that would help rebuild Mi Pueblo. What strategies have you brought to change or adapt Mi Pueblo to the current economic climate? When I joined Mi Pueblo my plan was to focus on enhancing our authentic Hispanic product offering, improving customer and employee experiences within Mi Pueblo’s stores and ensuring Mi Pueblo’s products are sold at fair and competitive prices in the marketplace. One of the first things that we did was bring back the 10% discount card for employees. This had been a benefit offered prior to bankruptcy, but had to be discontinued based on the company’s economic state. However, I am proud to share that we not only increased employee discount cards to 20%

in December, but have also provided employees with a second card for their significant other, family member, best friend, etc. In order to adapt to the current economic climate, we have also established several partnerships that bring a value to our customers and employees beyond the groceries we offer. This has included a partnership with Western Union to offer customers and employees a greater value and a better and more affordable alternative when sending their hard earned money to loved ones inside the U.S. and abroad. We also secured a partnership with Covered California to provide customers and employees with information on affordable insurance alternatives, and most recently a partnership with PG&E to offer tips on how to lower their electricity bills. How does/has your market knowledge approach to Mi Pueblo help guide the company in the right direction? In what ways has your leadership been beneficial to the company? At Mi Pueblo we value our employees and understand

To accomplish this, we have implemented several key internal initiatives to improve the company’s culture and boost morale. Some of the initiatives we launched include the 20% employee discount card, Mi Pueblo’s Scholarship program, holiday bonuses, improved benefits, an end-of-year stipend, increased vacation days, weekly payroll schedule, and the Visionary Award program, which gives employees an opportunity to share their ideas on how to improve Mi Pueblo for a chance to win $500 cash prize. In all our initiatives and special promotions we always make sure to include our employees by seeking ways to motivate them and by providing incentives. Some examples of these initiatives include sending employees to the World Series, giving away concert and sports events tickets, guitar giveaways and many more. Furthermore, we have launched several training programs that will give employees the tools to succeed at their job, whether it is improving management skills or learning more about the various meats and cuts offered at our stores. We want to ensure that our employees see Mi Pueblo as a career, and not just a job. Can you tell us more about Mi Pueblo’s community initiatives? As previously mentioned, we want to be more than a grocery store to our custom-

ers and employees, we want to be a resource for our community and support them in any way we can. Aside from the partnerships and in-store events we have hosted, we recently awarded 72 individual scholarships to local students and employees of Mi Pueblo to support their academic goals. Since 2011, Mi Pueblo has awarded more than $550,000 in scholarship monies to over 350 individuals in the Bay Area, Central Coast and Central Valley regions, and we look forward to continue doing so in the upcoming years. Other community initiatives we have launched include school field trips, a ballet folklorico competition, Mother’s Day sweepstakes to win a free mariachi serenade, introduction of El Mero Mero superhero to fight prices and offer exceptional customer service and introduced a new concept across our stores to provide customers with better service and a unique shopping experience.

What are your goals within the company going forward? This past year has been a thrilling ride for me. And while there is always room for improvement, I am very proud of what the team has been able to accomplish in this short amount of time. We want Mi Pueblo employees and customers to feel like Mi Pueblo is their home. This is why we are working hard to teach our new young employees what Hispanic hospitality is all about so we can continue passing down these wonderful values that make Latinos different from other cultures. Another key objective I have for the company is to become the leading bakery in Northern California. To achieve this, we have trained our bakers across the company on how to make various types of bread, from pan dulce to bolillos, this will help ensure the product quality doesn’t change from store to store. We have also provided

meat department training across all Mi Pueblo stores to ensure butchers are familiarized with the different cuts of meat and offer the highest quality products to our clients. Finally, we want to ensure Mi Pueblo represents the traditions, customs, and heritage of our customers and employees’ home country. We seek to achieve this by making our customers and employees feel at home with the music, aromas, decorations, colors and by offering authentic products that people can’t find anywhere else. We will continue to work very hard every day to offer the freshest ingredients and to improve traditional recipes such as our mole or salsas to offer our customers and employees a piece of their beloved Mexico abroad. At Mi Pueblo we strive to include our community and our goal is that everyone that visits our stores feels welcome and has a unique shopping experience.

STATEPOINT Daily stress in a busy life can challenge immune system function. No matter what season it is, it’s important to continually build robust immunity, say experts. “The immune system is incredibly complex and we’re learning more each day about what weakens it and how we can strengthen it for better health,” says Larry Robinson, PhD, vice president of scientific affairs at Embria Health Sciences, a manufacturer of natural, science-based ingredients that support wellness and vitality.

With your optimum health in mind, Robinson and the experts at Embria are offering some tips for warding off illness with a healthy immune system. Healthy Habits One of the most effective strategies for maintaining a healthy immune system may just be common sense. Harvard Medical School calls healthy-living strategies a “first line of defense.” To boost the immune system and every other part of

the body, treat your body right. Drink in moderation. Quit smoking. Eat a wellbalanced diet. Get regular exercise and plenty of sleep. Supplements Many people believe that taking a multivitamin or vitamin C is enough to maintain a strong immune system, but the truth is you may want a more multifaceted approach to your supplement regimen. Robinson recommends looking for a natural immune supplement, particularly one that contains EpiCor, a whole food yeast fermentate supplement comprised of proteins, fibers, polyphenols, vitamins, amino acids, betaglucans and beneficial metabolites that work together on many levels to support a strong immune system. EpiCor can now be found in many natural, trusted brands, including Hyperbiotics Immune: Daily Immune & Wellness Formula, which also offers targeted probiotic support, zinc, vitamin C and Echinacea in a time release tablet. Another immune boosting supplement to consider is Natrol Immune Boost,

which contains EpiCor, vitamin C, vitamin D, Zinc and Selenium, clinically-validated ingredients to help support your body’s ability to stay healthy. The brand has consistently achieved the highest “A” rating from the Natural Products Association. Take a Vacation The mind-body connection is powerful, and studies have shown that stress -- both temporary and chronic -- can compromise one’s immunity. Be mindful of the stressors in your life and take steps to reduce or eliminate their causes. While you may not be able to quit your job, you can make a point to schedule a vacation or make better use of your leisure time. You can also take stock of what causes you stress and think about ways of managing your reactions to troubling people and circumstances. You may not think about how to strengthen the immune system until falling ill, but it works to protect you every day. Think beyond vitamin C and take comprehensive steps to support your immunity now and in the future.

STATEPOINT Los vehículos de hoy en día vienen con abundantes nuevas características y tecnologías que pueden ayudar a los conductores, darles mayor comodidad a los pasajeros y proporcionar información en tiempo real sobre el estado del vehículo. Lo más importante es que muchas de las tecnologías de los vehículos de hoy en día están diseñadas pensando en la seguridad y tienen el potencial de salvar vidas. El problema es que muchos conductores no saben de la existencia de estas características o no saben cómo utilizarlas para desarrollar todo su potencial. Un estudio reciente de la Universidad de Iowa determinó que el 40% de los conductores se han visto sobresaltados o sorprendidos por algo que ha hecho su vehículo, un hallazgo preocupante dado que los choques de automóviles son una de las principales causas de muertes prevenibles en los Estados Unidos. “La tecnología puede cambiar el panorama cuando se trata de la seguridad,” dijo Deborah A.P. Hersman, presidente y directora general del Consejo Nacional para la Seguridad. “A fin de reconocer completamente

los beneficios de estos nuevos sistemas, los conductores deben estar conscientes de ellos y también entender sus limitaciones.” Pensando en esta necesidad, NSC se unió a la Universidad de Iowa para lanzar “¿Mi coche hace qué?”, un manual virtual del propietario que desmitifica las más recientes e innovadoras características de los vehículos.

El sitio web de la campaña, www.MyCarDoesWhat.org, destaca tecnologías tales como: • Cámaras de retroceso, que proporcionan una vista de la zona ciega que está directamente detrás del auto cuando el vehículo está en reversa • Monitores de punto ciego, que alertan a los conductores cuando hay algo en su punto ciego • Advertencias de colisión hacia el frente, que advierten a los conductores cuando se están acercando demasiado rápidamente al vehículo que tienen delante • Sistemas automáticos de frenado de emergencia, que aplican los frenos si el sistema detecta una colisión inminente

• Sistemas de freno antibloqueo, que impiden que se traben las ruedas, ayudando a evitar los patinazos descontrolados y ofreciendo cierto control de la dirección bajo condiciones de derrape • Alertas de tráfico cruzado atrás, que advierten a los conductores si se está aproximando tráfico a la izquierda o a la derecha cuando el vehículo está en reversa • Control de crucero adaptativo, que mantiene la velocidad ajustada por el conductor y una distancia de seguimiento preestablecido

COMMUNITY

Santa Clara County CALIFORNIA Nearly one in four women in the United States reports experiencing violence by a current or former spouse or boyfriend at some point in her life. On average, more than three women a day are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends in the United States. The County of Santa Clara is observing Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October to encourage residents to participate in one of the many events organized to increase public awareness and prevent intimate partner violence. The County of Santa Clara Board of Supervisors will proclaim October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month at its second Regular Meeting in October. The 2015 Domestic Violence Awareness Month events calendar is on the County of Santa Clara Office of Women’s Policy website https://owp.scc-

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

gov.org. Residents are encouraged to participate in one of the many events in Santa Clara County, and to wear purple or a purple ribbon throughout October as a way of signaling to others that ending Domestic Violence is important to them. “We know that every day someone is suffering from domestic violence behind closed doors and that is not acceptable,” said Supervisor Dave Cortese, President of County of Santa Cara Board of Supervisors. “We want everyone to know that there are many resources and services available.” Abuse is described as a repetitive pattern of behaviors to maintain power and control over an intimate partner. These are behaviors that physically harm, arouse fear, prevent a partner from doing what he or she wishes or force a partner to behave against his or her will. Abuse includes the use of physical and sexual violence, threats and intimidation, emotional abuse and economic

deprivation. Abusers may also use technology to harass and stalk victims, gather information and monitor the victims’ activities. They may hack into victims’ social media accounts or send threatening text messages or emails placing the victim in constant fear. These different forms of abuse can be going on simultaneously. Although women are much more likely than men to be victimized by a current or former intimate partner, domestic violence affects women, men, and children of all racial, ethnic, cultural, social, religious, sexual orientation and economic groups in the United States, in California and here in Santa Clara County. “We all have a responsibility to do everything we can to protect children, as research shows that trauma and abuse now increases the likelihood that they will become future victims or offenders,” said Supervisor Cindy Chavez, Chair of the Board of Supervisor’s Children, Seniors,

OCTOBER 09-15, 2015

and Families Committee. “We encourage our residents to be aware of domestic violence and seek help for themselves or for others who may be victims.” Women of all ages are at risk for domestic and sexual violence, and those age 20 to 24 are at the greatest risk of experiencing nonfatal intimate partner violence, including the highest rates of rape and sexual assault. Locally, domestic violence crisis hotlines in Santa Clara County answered over 21,000 calls, and over 650 victims and children accessed emergency shelter and transitional housing services during 2014. More than 2,000 victims were unable to access shelter in the same year. There were 5,052 domestic violence-related calls to local law enforcement in 2014, an increase from 3,992 in 2013 and 4,192 in 2012. The County had two domestic violence related deaths in 2014, a considerable decrease from eleven deaths in 2013

and nine deaths in 2012. From 1993-2014, there were 253 domestic violence related deaths in the County.Santa Clara County residents directly experiencing or aware of someone experiencing abuse can get help by calling one of the 24hour crisis lines below.

San Jose CALIFORNIA The U.S. Supreme Court reconvened on Monday. One of its decisions was to decide not to hear the City of San Jose’s anti-trust claim against Major League Baseball. The S.F. Giants claim San Jose to be part of their sphere of influence/ source of fans. The downtown San Jose property set aside for this proposed MLB stadium will now be developed thoughtfully to attract other commercial enterprises which will bring needed jobs. The good news for S.J. taxpayers is that cost of this petition was not underwritten by tax revenues. San José Mayor Sam Liccardo released the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision not to hear

OCTOBER 09-15, 2015

the City’s antitrust claim against Major League Baseball.   “We knew going into this litigation that getting a hearing before the U.S. Supreme Court would be a long shot -- the Court hears only a couple dozen out of the more than 2,000 petitions it receives each year. The good news for San Jose taxpayers is that they are not on the hook for the lawyers’ fees.  By ensuring that there would be a contingency fee arrangement, San José was really betting with house money.     We now have big opportunities in that same Diridon area to bring thousands of jobs to Downtown through a thoughtful redevelopment of those industrial parcels.  The unique location of that “ballpark” site-

- particularly its adjacency to the region’s major transit center-- makes it a potential jewel for development, and a promising source of jobs and tax revenue for our residents. We lost this battle, but we can win the larger endeavor of creating a vibrant, urban epicenter for Silicon Valley by taking advantage of this unique opportunity to combine office with retail and entertainment venues in the Downtown,” said Mayor Liccardo.   Additionally, during this new term ‘in session’ the U.S.Supreme Court, known as the ‘John Robert’s Court’, is scheduled to hear cases involving abortion matters; the death penalty; and public labor unions.  The abortion case has to do with the closure of almost all clinics

which provide this service in Texas; the death penalty may be unconstitutional because individuals sentenced may wait 18 years to be executed; and the public labor unions in states such



as Wisconsin, were denied their collective bargaining rights. The U.S. Supreme Court only hears about 24 petitions per year (out of some 2,000 submitted). Each of these three cases

should be of interest to all citizens, especially those of modest income levels. (Source: City of San Jose, CA and MSNBC News, 10.05.15).

Santa Clara CALIFORNIA In 2011, the passage of AB109, CA’s Public Safety Realignment Act (commonly referred to as realignment), transferred jurisdiction and funding for managing lower-level criminal offenders from the State prisons back to county jails. A rehabilitative Adult Reentry Network was designed and implemented to reduce recidivism. It provides supportive services and resources to offenders, both during custody and post-release. After two years, the data base of Realignment’s ReEntry Program indicates success. It established and executed a reentry resource center and service-linkage network, and began the process of examin-

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

ing and evaluating its reentry programs and services. The objectives of this two-year’s data base review were to determine what was working well and where improvements are needed; to identify any service barriers; and assess whether there were new offenses committed. This two-year evaluation is vital in constructing a roadmap for continually improving this re-entry program. “It is important that we measure the connection between services provided to AB 109 clients and tangible benefits that communities reap as a result,” said Supervisor Cindy Chavez, Chair, SCC Reentry Network and former Vice Chair, Public Safety and Justice Committee. “The goal is to help individuals re-integrate seamlessly into their families and their communi-

ties as contributing members of society.” The detailed evaluation, conducted by Resource Development Associates, examined the full range of programs and services, including: vocational education, housing, Office of Reentry Services, cognitive behavioral therapy, behavioral & mental health and substance use therapy services, faith based support, and social services

assistance. This evaluation looked at both the rate of recidivism, defined as “the occurrence of convictions (both misdemeanors and felonies) within five years of exiting custody or entering supervision,” and factors related thereto.   “The good news is that our local recidivism rate is about half the state average. Our goal is to continue to lower that number and this evalu-

ation report makes several recommendations that will help us get there,” said Supervisor Mike Wasserman, Chair, CSC Public Safety and Justice Committee. This evaluation revealed the need for earlier transition and discharge planning as a tool to help lower recidivism among those at higher risk of committing repeat offenses. In July, CSC began implementing this recommendation. CSC’s unique cross-system of Community Corrections Partnership makes this possible. “One example occurred last weekend,” Aguirre continued.  “A woman who was being released after spending 180 days in jail had no place to go. Because we began earlier discharge planning, we were able to provide her with a motel voucher for seven

days, have a faith-based partner transport her over the weekend to the motel, and on Monday, bring her here to the Reentry Resource Center where she got connected with appropriate supportive services. Without this effort, she would have become one more homeless person on the street, spiraling into more difficulty.” In CA, 65% of those released reoffend, 73% within the first 6 months. EDITOR’S NOTE: SCC Jail inmates are 50% Hispanic; 14% Black; 2% AsianAmericans...Is this the result of ‘profiling’, racism, bias and prejudice? Ethnic community leaders must become informed advocates for ‘Law Enforcement-Judicial System Reform plus become supportively involved.

A bill introduced last Thursday in Congress would allow mining in the Mojave Desert, in an area that is part of a proposed national monument. Credit: Ryse Lawrence

Suzanne Potter CALIFORNIA NEWS SERVICE SACRAMENTO, Calif. Mining exploration would be allowed in an area of the Mojave Desert deemed sensitive by environmental advocates - if a bill introduced last Thursday in Congress passes. The California Minerals, OffRoad Recreation and Conservation Act, sponsored by

U.S. Rep. Paul Cook, R-Calif., would allow 150 square miles of mining within the Mojave Trails area, a 1 million-acre section of pristine desert between Twentynine Palms and the Nevada border. Jim Mattern, who has written several books on the Mojave Desert, opposes the bill. “Cook’s bill will offer the opportunity for new mining claims, which really puts the areas into jeopardy,” he said.

“If you want to see land remain unscarred for future generations, then Cook’s bill is obviously not the way to go.”

Park and the Mojave National Preserve. It also contains the longest undeveloped stretch of Route 66 in the country.

Mattern prefers a rival bill by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., that would establish a national monument at Mojave Trails while allowing existing ATV and salt and gold-mining operations to continue. The Mojave Trails area connects Joshua Tree National

Frazier Haney, conservation director for the Mojave Desert Land Trust, said Mojave Trails is a special area that must be protected.

“Not only are there several species of rare and endangered plants, there’s also species being discovered that are new to science,” he said. “The California desert is really a biological frontier for discovery.” Cook’s bill specifically would prevent President Obama from using his powers under

the Antiquities Act to declare a national monument at Mojave Trails. It also would lift environmental protections for a large area in Inyo County. Cook’s bill soon will be available online at cook.house. gov. Feinstein’s bill is at feinstein.senate.gov.

SAN FRANCISCO - The big three California utility companies went before the Public Utilities Commission in San Francisco Monday to argue for changes in the way people with rooftop solar are compensated for the energy they feed back into the grid. Right now under the net metering program, solar owners are credited at the same rate the utilities charge. Evan Gillespie, director with the Sierra Club, says the changes the utilities want would take away the savings that lead people to install roof top solar. “If the utilities succeed in making these changes, only the very, very rich are going to be able to afford solar going forward, and that’s a big problem because it’s also taking away one of the single greatest tools that we have to fight climate change and clean up our air,” says Gillespie.

The PUC is holding hearings for solar power compensation. Credit: Solarenergy.org

San Diego Gas and Electric, Pacific Gas and Electric, and Edison would like to cut compensation to homeowners by about half, and charge higher connection fees, arguing that solar owners don’t contribute enough to the upkeep of the grid. The Public Utilities Commission has until the end of the year to make a decision. Gillespie says the utilities’ argument doesn’t hold up because solar generators reduce the demand for power from dirtier, more expensive sourc-

es and improve grid reliability. “It’s a nice story that they have yet to demonstrate data to back up,” he says. “We just made significant changes to how customers pay their bills. Going forward every Californian is gonna to be paying about $10 a month on their bill to cover these types of infrastructure charges.” The Sierra Club will hold rallies on this subject over the next three weeks in San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

To mark the fourth anniversary of Steven Paul Jobs’ death (02/24/1955 - 10/05/2011) current CEO Tim Cook sent out a memo to employees remembering the fearless leader, who co-founded Cupertino-based Apple and turned its products into universal icons, as a “dear friend” and “a brilliant person”. Cook continued by asking, “What is his legacy? I see it all around us: An incredible team that embodies his spirit of innovation and creativity. The greatest products on earth, beloved by customers and empowering hundreds of millions of people around the world.” He then encourages employees to speak to someone that worked during Jobs’ reign as CEO to hear how he really was. On October 9th the unapologetic film by Steven Sorkin, “Steve Jobs” opens for the masses. In it we are led to believe that Jobs was a very flawed, but determined man with a vision. Regardless of its content, there is no doubt that Jobs legacy is one of sheer brilliance and awe.

The entire memo appears below: Team, Today marks four years since Steve passed away. On that day, the world lost a visionary. We at Apple lost a leader, a mentor, and many of us lost a dear friend. Steve was a brilliant person, and his priorities were very simple. He loved his family above all, he loved Apple, and he loved the people with whom he worked so closely and achieved so much. Each year since his passing, I have reminded everyone in the Apple community that we share the privilege and responsibility of continuing the work Steve loved so much. What is his legacy? I see it all around us: An incredible team that embodies his spirit of innovation and creativity. The greatest products on earth, beloved by customers and empowering hundreds of millions of people around the world. Soaring achievements in technology and architecture. Experiences

of surprise and delight. A company that only he could have built. A company with an intense determination to change the world for the better. And, of course, the joy he brought his loved ones. He told me several times in his final years that he hoped to live long enough to see some of the milestones in his children’s lives. I was in his office over the summer with Laurene and their youngest daughter. Messages and drawings from his kids to their father are still there on Steve’s whiteboard. If you never knew Steve, you probably work with someone who did or who was here when he led Apple. Please stop one of us today and ask what he was really like. Several of us have posted our personal remembrances on AppleWeb, and I encourage you to read them. Thank you for honoring Steve by continuing the work he started, and for remembering both who he was and what he stood for. -Tim

Este juego de mesa según la creencia popular se creó con la motivación de establecer contacto con los espíritus de los difuntos, guías espirituales, almas en pena y extraterrestres. Existen diversas versiones acerca de la procedencia del tablero Ouija, se cree que fue inventado en la

antigua Roma, otras versiones remontan su procedencia a los tiempos de la gran Babilonia. Otros creen que su verdadero origen se puede trazar a finales del siglo XIX, durante el florecimiento de la cultura espiritista. Se cree que Alan Kardec(1804-1869), místico francés, fue considerado como precursor moderno de la cultura espiritista y quizá el precursor de la Ouija.

Witchboard. Este juego de mesa debe ser maniobrado con mucha cautela, aunque se encuentra en el mercado como un juego para infantes, es aconsejable que sean personas mayores de edad quiénes lo maniobren ya que existen todo tipo de aventuras extrañas, posesiones espirituales y eventos sobre naturales asociados al juego Ouija.

El tablero de Ouija que ahora conocemos fue creado en el año 1891 y patentado en 1890 por el estadounidense Elijah Jefferson Bond. Con respecto al vocablo Ouija, se creía que significaba mala suerte, sin embargo; William Fuld quién adquirió la patente a mediados del siglo pasado afirmó que Ouija es una mezcla de los vocablos Oui y Ja, que significan sí en francés y en alemán respectivamente. En el idioma inglés al tablero Ouija se le conoce como

En una sesión para jugar a la Ouija, generalmente se precisa de cuatro personas, cada una de ellas representará uno de los cuatro elementos primarios(tierra, aire, fuego y agua) se encienden alrededor del tablero cuatro velas blancas simbolizando los cuatro puntos cardinales y se coloca como ofrenda a los espíritus, una copa con agua cerca del tablero. Al iniciar la sesión se debe rezar una oración e invocar la presencia de espíritus de luz y ángeles, si

esto no se hace, se puede dar espacio para que sean espíritus malignos los que asistan a la sesión. Posteriormente se hacen preguntas las que irán siendo contestadas una a una mientras el puntero se mueve letra por letra hasta formar una palabra coherente. El puntero es movilizado por los dedos del consultante el cuál es dirigido por el ente espiritual que se hace presente durante la sesión. Se comprueba que una sesión está siendo asistida por uno o más espíritus si en la misma se siente una brisa fresca y una disminución de la temperatura ambiental, ruidos y destellos de luz también pueden ser advertidos. Se tiene la creencia que las mejores ocasiones para maniobrar el tablero Ouija, se realizan durante los festivales sabats de la religión wicca ( 2 de febrero, 21 de marzo, 30 de abril, 21 de junio, 1 de agosto, 21 de septiembre, 31 de octubre y 21 de diciembre) también las noches de luna llena y durante los días de eclipses. Al finalizar la sesión se debe bendecir a los espíritus y se finaliza rezando una oración. Las iglesias católicas, cristianas y musulmanas están en total desacuerdo con que se practique el juego de Ouija, ya que lo consideran como una puerta de entrada a entes malignos y fuerzas diabólicas. La Ouija debe ser tratada con seriedad para algunos es un pasatiempo inofensivo, para otros un culto a la hechicería.

Forward Joe Thornton and Logan Couture Will Serve as Alternate Captains The San Jose Sharks have named Joe Pavelski as the ninth full time captain in club history. Head Coach Peter DeBoer made the announcement following this Monday’s practice at Sharks Ice.

San Jose moves above the red line with draw vs. Supporters’ Shield contender San Jose CALIFORNIA The San Jose Earthquakes used a second-half goal from forward Chris Wondolowski to earn a vital point against Vancouver Whitecaps FC in a 1-1 draw at Avaya Stadium on Saturday night. Wondolowski tallied his 20th career goal in the month of October, eight more than any other player in MLS history. In the 21st minute, midfielder Shea Salinas created a chance for San Jose with a strong individual effort. After receiving a pass on the left flank, Salinas took on two defenders before slotting a pass in front of keeper David Ousted. The ball rolled all the way through the box just yards from net, but did not connect with any oncoming attackers. Vancouver took a 1-0 lead in the 39th minute. After a scrum in front of net, a clearance attempt by Quakes defender Shaun Francis bounced off of Cristian Techera and looped over keeper David Bingham’s outstretched arms. San Jose drew level in the 62nd minute. Defender Marvell Wynne played a through ball to midfielder Cordell Cato, who outran his defender to the ball. Cato had a shot, which was saved by keeper David Ousted, but the loose ball fell dangerously in front of goal. Wondolowski was the first man to it and calmly slotted the rebound home. It marked Wondolowski’s 16th goal of the season and 109th of his career, and he moved into sole possession of fifth place on the league’s all-time scoring leaderboard. Wondolowski’s 10th goal against Vancouver is the most among all players since the club entered MLS play in 2011.

As San Jose pushed for the game winner, a stoppage-time turnover led to a breakaway for Whitecaps FC. However, Bingham rushed out to clean up a heavy touch and secure a huge point for the home side. Following a bye week, San Jose plays their third of three consecutive matches at Avaya Stadium against Sporting Kansas City on Friday, October 16, presented by Stanford Health Care. The match kicks off at 8:00 p.m. PT and will be broadcast live on CSN California, 1590 KLIV and 1370 KZSF.

Pavelski is entering his 10th season in the league after being selected 205th overall by San Jose in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. The forward’s 228 career goals are second in franchise history, behind only Patrick Marleau. Pavelski ended 2014-15 ranked 2nd in the NHL in power play goals (19), tied for 5th in the NHL in goals (37) and tied for 17th in points (70). The Big Pavelski is the reigning Sharks Player of the Year for the last two seasons and has represented Team USA in the last two Olympic competitions, winning a silver medal in 2010.

2015 Open Air Health Fair Comes Once More to Help the Community homes that are receiving the services. So we think that the connection and follow ups are much stronger because we are using fellow community members that provide the service.”

Arturo Hilario EL OBSERVADOR

would you guys help with that.

This coming weekend the Berryessa Flea Market will host its yearly Open Air Community Health Fair as part of the Binational Health Week. Now in its 15th year the nonprofit Health Trust, among other agencies and organizations, collaborate to bring health information, health services, and guidance to those who seek it, free of charge. Paul Hepfer, Vice President of Programs for the Health Trust, has been part of this collaboration for years now. He says of the Health Trust, “we really have a diverse portfolio of the type of promotion programs we provide anywhere from clinical type of case management for people with HIV, meals on wheels for low income seniors, we do children’s dental programs, family health insurance and a number of health fair and diabetes prevention and management programs.”

Hepfer says the location of the flea market and its diverse clientele allows for a great amount of interaction across many types of people. “I think that one thing that I really like about the venue is that it's such a diverse group of people at the flea market. Since we started doing this we were so impressed by our ability to reach the audience.”

This collaboration was conceived after a children’s fair event more than a decade ago. “It was really thanks to Rich Alvari (Marketing Director of the Berryessa Flea Market),” says Hepfer. “About 15 years ago they had a children’s fair and some of our staff came to provide some health information at this fair. Rich said ‘I wonder if we could do something that was just all about health, and

In order to create the level of service for the people attending the health fair, the Health Trust looked at other health fair models to perfect something that benefitted everyone that would stop by. “We actually looked at a lot of health fairs from around the country. Some of the criticism of health fairs was that sure you’re providing information to people but if you’re not connecting them to resources and doing follow ups you’re not doing as much as you should or could be doing. So what we set out to make our health fair was a way to engage people in their own health, empower them with the knowledge that they might have not had before.” Another great method of connecting with the community is that the medical staff are primarily from the same communities as the attendees. “They know that they’re from the same neighborhoods and the same apartment complexes, (and) same

The help doesn’t end when the health fair is over. Hepfer says, “beyond saying it doesn’t end, I would say it only actually starts there. To describe it as an ‘event’ in some ways does a disservice to the health fair. It’s really the kick off to many people because they have new information about their health, it’s really a way for them to take it and go further.” And that is the ultimate difference between other health fairs and the flea market one is that there is involvement in following up with people that may experience any challenges getting into services after the fair. “That the distinction we really make, where other health fairs may just provide information or resources or some knowledge. We kind of feel it’s our responsibility and take it to the next level and make sure people really understand what to do with that information,” adds Hepfer. Hepfer adds that having that relationship with the flea market has been one of the most important community outreach locations they’ve had the opportunity to provide service in. “On any given Sunday there’s 14 thousand people there, many are underinsured or not insured at all and are able to connect them with resources on a weekly basis, not just once a year.” The 2015 Open Air Health Fair will be on Saturday, October 10th and Sunday, October 11th at The San Jose Flea Market. This event and services are free. For more information please visit:
