CALENDAR How women can plan for their financial futures While the Bureau of Labor Statistics found that women are 33 percent more likely to earn a Bachelor’s Degree than men, they still earn 77 cents for every dollar their male colleagues take home, and that wage gap has been difficult to close. This is a key reason why it’s important to make every dollar count. (More online) Retired but not tired: the four things every “senior-preneur” must do Contrary to popular belief, entrepreneurship is not just for the millennial generation. In fact, people over 50 are one of the fastest growing groups of entrepreneurs in the U.S., according to a recent Gallup study. (More at el-observador.com)

have been raving about the six-hour workday. Phil Arunden, who developed ‘apps’ for children, says that the shorter days give employees more energy and they work better with fewer disagreements. Wrap, another web outfit, says it has a competitive advantage over other companies with its shorter shifts as reported in the Guardian. It can attract and retain great workers with such a great (short work schedule).”

HILBERT MORALES EL OBSERVADOR An interesting proposal, the six (6) hour workday in Sweden, was reported by Fareed Zakaria, Global Public Square, MSNBC, on 10.11.15 ‘What in the World’ segment.. “Businesses all over Sweden are foregoing 9 to 5 shifts to test this bold concept in the working world: The six (6) hour workday or some variation thereof, to improve worker’s productivity and quality of life. Can working less actually give companies a competitive advantage? Consider a study cited in Atlantic (Magazine) that found that those who work less than 40 hours per week, outperformed those who worked 55 hours per week or more on certain tasks. In another study, a Stanford economist concluded that the number of hours that somebody worked is not in direct proportion to his/her output. That after 48 working hours, productivity actually goes down. Tony Schwartz, management expert, explains in the Harvard Business Review, that people work better in short bursts rather than long grinds. And in Sweden, companies

OPINION

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

“In U.S.A., great web companies, like Relevance and Treehouse, have reported stellar employee retention rates after implementing a four day work week. And Google’s Larry Page, has also supported that idea, the Atlantic points out. Yet, despite these arguments for shorter work days, American workers seem to be spending a lot of time at the office. A 2014 Gallup survey found that American adults working full time put in an average of 47 hours per week, nearly a full business day more than the typical 40 hour work week. Almost one in five Americans work 60 hours or more per week. U.S. workers log in more hours on average than any other countries during 2014 according to (data from) United Kingdom, Germany and Japan. It is worth remembering that a pioneer of the American workplace, Henry Ford, cut back his work-force labor hours as part of his revolutionary approach to making his workers happier and more productive. He had his doubters at the time, but his competitors soon imitated his success. And the rest is history.” “It is time to revolutionize the American workplace once again. And move away from that now outdated 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM factory model work day. As the progressive website ‘Alternet’ pointed out, today’s white-collar knowledge work-

Hace pocos días, por ejemplo, fuimos protagonistas en la Casa Blanca gracias a la presentación de Buena Vista Social Club que se convirtió en el primer grupo artístico cubano - asentado en Cuba - que actúa en la sede del gobierno estadounidense en al menos  50 años.

Me preguntaba también, si quizás, quizás, la apatía característica de nuestra raza en lo que a política se refiere nos mantendrá alejados de las urnas en las próximas elecciones o si por lo contrario nos registraremos en masa para votar y decidir el futuro que tendremos que vivir.

Mientras los músicos legendarios cantaban éxitos como Quizás, quizás, yo me preguntaba si el próximo presidente de esta poderosa nación, le dará por fin a los miles de inmigrantes indocumentados que viven y trabajan aquí un lugar digno en la sociedad a la que sirven y qué haremos nosotros para lograrlo.

Me preguntaba también a dónde irá a parar la diatriba incontrolada del señor Donald Trump que sigue exacerbando el discurso anti-inmigrante en una nación de inmigrantes. ¿Será que vamos a permitir que llegue al poder?

Me preguntaba también por el asunto ese de las cárceles que incomodó – gracias a un hispano – a la campaña de Hillary Clinton hace también pocos días... ¿En qué parará?

¿Será que los miles y miles de ciudadanos latinos elegibles para votar, pero que no están registrados se animan a registrarse y a hacer sentir su voz? Hay que recordar que de acuerdo con NALEO -Asociación Nacional de Funcio-

narios Latinos en Estados Unidos hay más de 28.2 millones de latinos elegibles para votar en 2016. Sin embargo son unos 12.2 millones   los que no se ha inscrito en el padrón electoral de su estado. El problema es que  si no  lo hacen – o no lo hicieron - estarán inhabilitados para  votar cuando llegue el momento y eso sería una enorme pérdida, una pérdida irreparable. Pero eso no es todo: hay 8.8 millones elegibles para hacerse ciudadanos... ¿Lo harán? Si lo hicieran el voto latino estaría listo para arrasar... y ahí si que estaríamos de boca en boca. El asunto es que si hacemos que se escuche nuestra voz, podemos pelear por nuestros derechos. Si votamos y elegimos estaremos decidiendo nuestro destino y el de todos aquellos que no tienen voz;

ers have about six hours of productive work in them each day, not eight. Technology has disrupted the workplace to a certain extent already, but there is a lot more innovation that can be done, like shifting around working hours and encouraging input from employees on how to get the job done. Throughout the 20th century, America innovated its place to become a nation with the most vibrant, productive nation of workers on earth, with superior ingenuity and creativity. It’s time we invented more productive ways of working in the 21st century and more pleasant ones as well.” Why is the above so important today? It is because robotics and computerized automation have increased productivity while eliminating many jobs with the outcome that economic policy must begin to find ways to share the remaining work available today. The six (6) hour work day favors knowledge worker (STEM, etc.). In addition, comprehensive IRS income tax reform must eliminate all tax loopholes and corporate welfare. Also, a system must be authorized and established which permits an individual who earns a living through a patchwork of several part-time jobs, to have access to social security and comprehensive medical insurance coverages to which employers must make contributions as with full time employee programs. A shorter 30 hour work week would enable employed parents to spend more time parenting their kids with the long term result being that these family units would have time to become again the basic social unit of all communities and their cultures.

es decir, las madres que corren peligro de ser deportadas y separadas de sus hijos, los trabajadores que reciben un sueldo inferior al que merecen por su trabajo gracias a su condición migratoria, los obreros discriminados por su condición de extranjeros... todos, todos aquellos que

EDUCATION

In an effort to ensure that all students have access to a world-class education that prepares them for college and careers, the U.S. Department of Education released a re-

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

source guide today to help educators, school leaders and community organizations better support undocumented youth, including Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients. “Our nation’s public schools should be welcoming, safe, and supportive places where all students, regardless of their zip code or where they were born, are given the opportunity to succeed. We know undocumented youth face unique challenges and

we also know that educators and other caring adults in schools and colleges can play a major role in helping all students, including undocumented students, to achieve at the highest levels,” said John King, senior advisor delegated the duties of deputy secretary of education. “This guide provides actionable information and resources that educators and school and campus leaders can use to help improve outcomes for high school and college students.”

The guide includes resources aimed at high school and college students and includes: · An overview of the rights of undocumented students; ·Tips for educators on how to support undocumented youth in high school and college; ·Key information on non-citizen access to federal financial aid; ·A list of private scholarships for which undocumented youth might be eligible; ·Information on federallyfunded adult education programs at the local level; And ·Guidance for migrant students in accessing their education records for DACA. The aim of the guide is to help educators and school staff support the academic success of undocumented youth, to debunk misconceptions by clarifying the legal rights of undocumented students as well as sharing

OCTOBER 23-29, 2015

helpful information about financial aid options and support for DACA consideration or renewal. King announced the guide during a roundtable with undocumented students at San Francisco State University, which is a leader in supporting the success of undocumented youth. The university has advisers to help undocumented students successfully navigate financial aid options and other university resources, as well as a task force of faculty, staff and students dedicated to supporting the academic, professional and personal success of undocumented students and prospective students. As a nation of immigrants, America has benefited from the vitality and enthusiasm brought to its shores by those seeking a better life. Successful immigrant and refugee integration efforts build the

capacity of schools and early learning programs, communities, organizations, and other stakeholders to support the civic, linguistic, and economic integration of immigrants. Since 2012 the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has allowed certain undocumented people who came to the U.S. as children and meet other criteria to request two year relief from removal.  These requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.  More than 680,000 young people have received DACA. Researchers estimate that nearly 1.5 million undocumented youth in the U.S. are currently eligible for DACA, and another 400,000 children will become eligible in coming years.   In coming months, the Department plans to release a resource guide for early learning and elementary school settings.

BPT El año pasado, varias firmas de tecnología dieron a conocer informes sobre la conformación demográfica de sus empleados, y enfatizaron en la seria carencia de diversidad en ese sector. Google indicó que el 61 por ciento de sus empleados eran blancos; el 30 por ciento asiáticos; el 4 por ciento se identificó como de dos o más razas, el dos por ciento negros, y el 1 por ciento de otras procedencias raciales. Estas cifras fueron bastante consecuentes en otras importantes compañías tecnológicas como Apple, Facebook y Twitter. Y este año, de acuerdo a los reportes revelados por las mismas compañías, no se produjeron progresos sustanciales. En respuesta a esa situación, Twitter creó alianzas con organizaciones de diversidad e instituciones universitarias que prestan servicios a minorías étnicas, y también estimuló iniciativas internas entre sus empleados. Por su parte, Apple ha asignado más de $50 millones a proyectos de diversidad. Sin embargo, a pesar de tales iniciativas, muchos estiman que se debe trabajar más en el fomento

de perspectivas diversas en el sector de la tecnología, y ampliar el suministro continuo de talentos que representen mejor a la sociedad. ¿Cómo se puede resolver ese problema? Muchos creen que será imposible el surgimiento de la nueva generación de líderes de la tecnología, y mucho menos la incorporación de niños de orígenes diversos; hasta que los alumnos de preescolar a duodécimo grado tengan acceso más temprano a la enseñanza de tecnología. Para ejemplificar esa necesidad urgente, solo hay que ver cómo los empleos de programación por computación están aumentando dos veces más que el promedio nacional, en comparación con otros sectores. Esta situación hace que sea particularmente preocupante el descubrimiento reciente hecho por Code.org (organización sin fines de lucro dedicada a ampliar la participación en la ciencia de computación) de que 9 de cada 10 centros de enseñanza secundaria de los Estados Unidos no imparten clases de ciencias de computación. Pero lo más alarmante es que, según la Oficina de Estadísticas

5

Laborales (Bureau of Labor Statistics), en el 2020 habrá 1.4 millones de empleos relacionados con ciencias de computación disponibles en el país, pero solo 400,000 estudiantes de esa disciplina para ocuparlos. Según esas cifras, no puede restársele importancia a la necesidad de estimular a que niños y adultos de todas las procedencias étnicas estudien materias STEM (siglas en inglés de Ciencias, Tecnología, Ingeniería y Matemáticas); y de crear profesiones en el campo de la tecnología. Como el entrenamiento especializado para muchos sectores de la tecnología comienza en los estudios universitarios, la enseñanza superior tiene una posición privilegiada para ampliar las oportunidades en las comunidades marginadas, e incrementar la diversidad de la fuerza laboral en la industria tecnológica. Una institución que ha encabezado esas iniciativas es la Universidad de Phoenix. Dadas las necesidades únicas de sus estudiantes– muchos de los cuales son trabajadores adultos- la Universidad creó

programas de diploma en Informática y Tecnología, para proporcionarles a los alumnos una amplia gama de destrezas técnicas y organizativas, así como la comprensión de conceptos fundamentales de negocios que en-

fatizan en cómo la tecnología es el puente que los conecta con sus profesiones futuras. Este es solo un ejemplo de cómo los líderes de diferentes campos de los sectores público y privado, están ha-

ciendo un compromiso para crear diversidad en la fuerza laboral, y la ocupación de las plazas importantes cuya estabilidad y solidez necesita garantizar el campo de la tecnología.

Un informe reciente muestra que los adultos mayores de California necesitan hacer más para prepararse para el retiro. Crédito: Kameleon007/iStockphoto.

Suzanne Potter CALIFORNIA NEWS SERVICE SACRAMENTO, Calif. - El numero de personas edad avanzada de California esta a punto de explotar y la mayoria no estan preparadas para el retiro. Asi lo indica un informe reciente de la Universidad de California - Berkeley presentado durante una conferencia la semana pasada en Sacramento. Pero un nuevo plan estatal, programado para 2016, podria ayudar. La poblacion de California en edad avanzada crecera dos tercios en los proximos veinte anos - y la mayoria de los trabajadores no estan ahorrando suficiente para su retiro. La terrible predic-

cion viene en un informe reciente de la U-C Berkeley dado a conocer hoy, llamado “El anejamiento de la crisis del retiro en California: indicadores estatales y locales” (Aging California’s Retirement Crisis: State and Local Indicators). La Dra. Nari Rhee, gerente del Programa de Seguridad del Retiro (Retirement Security Program) del Centro para el Trabajo de la Universidad de California en Berkeley, quien superviso el estudio que menciona el informe, afirma que la poblacion mayor de California es cada vez mas vulnerable. “El grupo de mayor crecimiento es el de 80 anos o mas, latinos y asiaticos. Ademas, las mujeres seguiran

siendo mayoria entre esta poblacion. Y estos son precisamente los segmentos que tienden a tener menos recursos en su retiro.” El informe es el tema mas relevante de una conferencia sobre retiro que se celebra hoy en Sacramento. Otro hallazgo es que mas de 6.2 millones de californianos no tienen un plan de ahorro para el retiro a traves de sus empleos. Blanca Castro, directora de defensoria de la AARP California y copatrocinadora de la conferencia, apoya la legislacion que vendra el ano proximo, y que establecera el programa “Secure Choice” (Eleccion Segura) - un plan de ahorro para el retiro manejado por el estado que

ayudaria a los californianos que no tienen acceso a un 401K. “Los subsidios ‘Secure Choice’ serian un vehiculo para mucha gente que ahora no tiene una manera de ahorrar para su retiro. Sin importar donde trabajes, este programa de ahorro siempre ira contigo.” El reporte tambien encontro que las areas de Fresno y Los Angeles enfrentaran la mayor poblacion en edad avanzada que no tienen otro ingreso para el retiro que Social Security. El informe (en ingles) esta en Aging California’s Retirement Crisis: State and Local Indicators.

Suzanne Potter CALIFORNIA NEWS SERVICE SACRAMENTO, Calif. - The senior population of California will grow by two-thirds over the next 20 years, and most workers are not saving enough for retirement. The dire prediction comes in a new report from UC Berkeley released last week called “Aging California’s Retirement Crisis: State and Local Indicators”. Dr. Nari Rhee, manager of the Retirement Security Program at UC Berkeley’s Center for Labor, says California’s senior population is increasingly vulnerable. “The fastest growing groups of seniors are age 80 and older, Latinos and Asians,” she says. “In addition, women will continue to make up a majority of seniors. And these are the very populations that tend to have fewer resources in retirement.” The report is the highlight

of a conference on retirement being held today in Sacramento. Another finding is that more than 6.2 million Californians do not have a retirement savings plan through their employer. Blanca Castro, advocacy director with AARP California, which is co-sponsoring the conference, supports legislation coming next year that will establish the Secure Choice program - a retirement savings plan run by the state that would help Californians who don’t have access to a 401K. “The Secure Choice grants would be a vehicle for many people who currently don’t have a way to save for retirement,” she says. “Regardless of where you work, this savings program would always go with you.” The report also found that the Fresno and Los Angeles areas will face the largest populations of seniors who have no other retirement income apart from Social Security.

She’s part of a group that is fasting and camping out on the steps of the federal courthouse in New Orleans to pressure a three-judge panel on the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals to make a decision on DACA and DAPA, federal programs that would grant temporary work permits to certain undocumented children and their parents.

Medina said she’s desperately trying to bring attention to the issue. “I am a medical assistant and one day I will become a nurse,” she said, “and I could fully contribute to this great country, the country that is my home, because my children, 7 and 9 years old, were born here. And I am doing this because of them.”

In 2014, President Obama issued an executive order that would have protected millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation, which can tear mixed-status families apart. But 26 states filed a lawsuit, and a Texas court put the programs on hold. Now it’s up to the Fifth Circuit. If the judges rule soon, the case could be eligible for appeal to the Supreme Court this year. If the justices delay, Medina said, ultimate resolution could have to wait another year. “We only need an answer so that we can move this case to the Supreme Court,” she said, “and I’m sure we can win it very easily.” Meanwhile, supporters in Los Angeles marched from the federal immigration detention center at Alameda and Aliso avenues to the federal courthouse on Spring Street and held a rally which included 11 additional people who are fasting to represent the 11 million undocumented people in the United States.

GREEN LIVING

Winston Black NEWARK, NJ Biophilia is defined as the inherent human inclination to affiliate with nature. The moral imperative of biophilia is that we cannot flourish as individuals or as a species without a compassionate and considerate relationship to the world beyond ourselves of which we are a part. Biophilic design, an extension of biophilia, incorporates natural materials, natural light, vegetation, nature views and other experiences of the natural world into the modern built environment. According to Stephen R. Kellert, author of Birthright: People and Nature in the Modern World, humans may have evolved in the natural world, but the habitat of contemporary people has largely become the indoor

built environment where we now spend 90 percent of our time. The result has been an increasing disconnect between us and nature. However, the emerging concept of biophilic design recognizes how much human physical and mental well-being relies on the quality of our relationships to the natural world. “We put people in windowless offices and give them a computer and a desk and think they should be able to work just fine because they’ve got all the obvious things they need, like air to breathe, artificial light to see by and access to all kinds of information,” Kellert says. “But we find that they don’t actually work all that well in those kinds of environments. They are more likely to experience fatigue, lack of motivation and higher rates of absenteeism. If you just put certain aspects of nature into these

environments, it actually results in improved well-being and productivity.” Current low-impact design, like the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) system, emphasizes avoiding pollution, eliminating chemical toxins, minimizing waste, increasing energy efficiency and decreasing water use. How-

ever, due to rapidly evolving technological advances, energy-efficient solar collectors and other low-impact design features quickly become outdated. Biophilic design’s aesthetic, sensory-rich fusion with nature, along with its health benefits, make it the missing link in most sustainable design, Kellert says, and only development which incorporates both biophilic and low-impact design can

Furthermore, Kellert says. “…you need to create a sense of affiliation or attachment to these structures that motivates people to want to sustain them over time, which is just as important as reducing harmful impacts. We’ve done ourselves in the environmental field a disservice [by] only focusing on the negative impacts and forgetting the root of the environmental movement, which, whether it’s Henry David Thoreau or Ralph Waldo Emerson or Aldo Leopold, was very much a celebration of our connection to the natural world and how it’s fundamental to who we are as individuals and as a species.” Recent biophilic design can be seen in structures like Yale University’s Kroon Hall, the Bank of America Tower and

the Cook+Fox Architects office in New York City, Dell Children’s Hospital in Austin, Texas, and more. Kellert says one of the most satisfying projects he worked on last year was an elderly health care complex in Indiana. By incorporating biophilic design into the complex, it created a less alienating, more positive, therapeutic environment for people with memory loss. CONTACTS: Stephen R.

Earl Ofari Hutchinson NEW AMERICA MEDIA “Seems the more people you kill, the more you’re in the limelight.” This is a quote from the Oregon community college shooter, who I will not name. His quote is the reason that Oregon police investigators absolutely refused to name him in statements and interviews. A group of friends, relatives, and parents of the shooter’s victims angrily denounced a local paper for mentioning his name and demanded that it cease and desist. This was more than just anger, outrage and aggrieved pique at the killer. There’s an online campaign. “No Notoriety” not to name mass killers. The FBI and police groups have followed this tact. The no name campaign is horrific recognition of what studies show and that’s that mass killers know exactly what they’re doing, and bank heavily on turning their killing spree into warped and perverse mass theater and spectacle. They know this is the kind of gory sensationalism that much of the media feeds on, and they’ll get the sick and sordid attention they crave. In less than a week after the Oregon college mass killing, there were shootings at Northern Arizona University, and Texas Southern University. The ritual is now well-established. A young, single, loner type male shoots up a campus, theater, or mall. He etches out a “manifesto” or a YouTube rant. It quickly goes viral. The details about the killer, his background, complete with mug shots, and endless speculation about his motives is looped continually. This confers an inverted status, prestige, almost anti-hero celebrity aura to the act and the killer. There’s a growing body of evidence that flashing the deadly rampages on the screen gives the horrendous act validation

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

far beyond what was dreamed or certainly intended. Studies note the copycat effect in killings that occur in bunches, rather than randomly. The killings get widespread media play, and the killers all fit the same prototype, lonely, enraged, with a wildly exaggerated notion of grandiosity. Other studies of violent suicides that received wide media play found the same spike in copycat suicides. In response, a number of news outlets in Europe clamp a near blanket prohibition on endless coverage of gruesome suicides and killings. In their reports, they pick their words very carefully to describe the circumstances, provide the barest of bare bone details, and avoid using any language that can be construed as romanticizing the killer, and his act. The point is not to give the killer what he hungers for most and that is a mass audience and a sort of entrance into Valhalla sense of the grand end to life. Simply totally erasing the names of mass killers from the coverage as some news outlets do, though, is only the starting point. It’s not the mention or non-mention of a mass killer’s name that’s the problem. It’s the possible inadvertent aid and abet of the killers in their calculated last gasp effort to get the world to see, hear and recognize the importance and significance they attach to their always convoluted, disjointed ramblings. The speculation and conjecture about the killer’s motives makes it almost appear that there is a rational and justifiable reason to why the killer did what he did. The problem is that the speculation is almost always based on his words, and in continually citing them this gives the perception that there is not just reason to the killings but even justification. The answer is to scrap the endless play by play of the killings, complete with graphic description of the killer’s clothes, facial expressions, and especially the seemingly obsessive talk of

the shooter’s arsenals of weapons and everything about them even down to the weapon’s serial numbers. This includes photos and film footage of the shooter’s bloody path. All of this goes viral before the last frame is on the screen flashes. News outlets counter that sharply limiting the coverage of the killings is censorship and violates the premise of the public’s right to know. Throw in the pressure the networks are under to fill up hours of air time, the press of ratings competition, and the relentless search for a scoop, make the temptation to go sensational near irresistible. But sensationalism and overkill reporting makes a dangerous mockery of the public’s right to know. News outlets routinely don’t provide the names and details of sexual assault victims, minors, or how a terrorist group made a bomb. They even ace out profanity, and racial expletives from all newscasts because they are offensive. It’s true that mass killings are the apex of gruesome sensationalism, and sadly, are real news. But this just makes it even more imperative that they are reported without inadvertently or intentionally sensationalizing them. When this happens the unnamed Oregon shooter and others that copycat them are shut out of the audience and 15 minutes they crave. This is a big step toward not creating even more of them.

Mario Jiménez Castillo EL OBSERVADOR Rick Moreno, pintor, músico y escultor de San José, nos hace una atenta invitación para que celebremos con entusiasmo el día de los muertos el día domingo 25 de octubre en el Festival de las Calacas en el centro de San José de 11 a.m. a las 3:30 p.m. y en la Plaza de la Herencia Mexicana el día domingo primero de noviembre, de 2 p.m. a las 8 p.m. Este festejo se ha venido realizando cada año en San José, gracias a la colaboración de artistas como “Rick Moreno y María Luisa Colmenares”. En el evento de la Plaza de la Herencia Mexicana, habrá música en vivo, ballet folklórico, baile de máscaras, altares, ofrendas y un concurso de disfraces, también habrá comida y bebida apropiadas para la ocasión. Para Rick Moreno, la conmemoración del día de muertos es un evento en el que cada año se le rinde tributo a nuestros seres queridos que ya no están con nosotros y especialmente se le rinde homenaje a aquellos seres humanos que han dejado una enseñanza y una huella profunda en nuestras vidas; en mi caso comentó Rick, ese día le rendiré tributo a personajes que han sido influyentes en mi vida como Lola Beltrán, Pedro Infante, Don Antonio Aguilar, María Félix y Frida Kahlo, solamente por mencionar algunos nombres. El culto a los difuntos es común en otros continentes y creencias religiosas, especialmente en Asia y África, pero ha sido en México en dónde el día de los muertos ha trascendido de ser una conmemoración netamente religiosa para convertirse en todo un patrimonio cultural. En un día de muertos no pueden faltar las calaveritas, ni el pan de muerto y los platillos típicos que se degusta en esta fecha. En día de muertos se festeja a los difuntos, se comparte con ellos, no es un día triste sino un día para compartir con los seres del más allá, porque la muerte es solamente una etapa en la eterna migración del espíritu. Las calaveritas, el papel picado, las máscaras, libros y todos los artículos conmemorativos del día de los muertos se pueden adquirir en la tienda “De la Rosa” en San José.

Mario Jiménez Castillo EL OBSERVADOR Rick Moreno, painter, musician and sculptor from San José, is inviting us to celebrate with enthusiasm the Day of the Dead this Sunday, October 25th at the Festival de las Calacas in downtown San José, from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and at the Mexican Heritage Plaza on Sunday, November 1st, from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. These festivals have been celebrated every year in San Jose thanks to the collaboration of artists like “Rick Moreno and María Luisa Colmenares”. At the event in Mexican Heritage Plaza there will be live music, ballet folklorico, mask dances, altars, offerings and a costume contest, there will also be food and beverages appropriate to the occasion. For Rick Moreno, the commemoration of Day of the Dead is an event in which every year tribute is given to our loved ones who are no longer with us, and homage is especially given to those who left us lessons and a profound imprint in our lives, in my case, commented Rick, I will pay tribute to personages who have influenced my life, like Lola Beltran, Pedro Infante, Don Antonio Aguilar, Maria Felix and Frida Kahlo, to mention just a few. The cult of the dead is common in other continents and religious beliefs, especially in Asia and Africa, but it has been in Mexico where the Day of the Dead has transcended from being a religious commemoration to turning into a cultural patrimony. The Day of the Dead couldn’t be without the sugar skulls, bread of the dead and the typical dishes that are enjoyed in such a day. On Day of the Dead we celebrate the deceased, we share with them, it is not a sad day but one to share with the beings from beyond, because death is only a stage in the eternal migration of the spirit. The skulls, paper garlands, masks, books and all the commemorative articles of Day of the Dead can be found at “De la Rosa” store in San José.

Tonight, marking the anniversary, they are being celebrated at a special screening of the drama “The 33,” from Alcon Entertainment and Warner Bros. Pictures. They have also toured the famous sites of the Eternal City during their visit.

The modern world holds many secrets, but the most astounding secret of all is that witches still live amongst us; vicious supernatural creatures intent on unleashing the Black Death upon the world. Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe for centuries, including KAULDER, a valiant warrior who managed to slay the all-powerful QUEEN WITCH, decimating her followers in the process. In the moments right before her death, the QUEEN curses KAULDER with her own immortality, forever separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife. Today KAULDER is the only one of his kind remaining, and has spent centuries hunting down rogue witches, all the while yearning for his long-lost loved ones. However, unbeknownst to KAULDER, the QUEEN WITCH is resurrected and seeks revenge on her killer causing an epic battle that will determine the survival of the human race.

OCTOBER 23-29, 2015

Shelly Palmer Here’s a social media post I’d rather did not exist. According to the ADL, it was posted on Facebook on October 14, 2015 with the Arabic hashtag “Stab.” Israel’s UN ambassador, Danny Danon, recently showed a version of this instructional graphic to the UN Security Council with the English-language title, “How to Stab a Jew.” Mr. Danon was making a point – but also describing a form of warfare so new it does not yet have a name. This new enemy is not a person, a people, a government or a nation-state. It is an idea. And as Victor Hugo once said, “On résiste à l’invasion des armées; on ne résiste pas à l’invasion des idées.” (One resists the invasion of armies; one does not resist the invasion of ideas.) The Pen Is Mightier than the Sword Propaganda has been used as a strategic weapon since the beginning of organized conflict. We use it still. Information Warfare is the focus of the US military’s Psychological Operations Command (PsyOps) at Ft. Bragg. In January 2015, the United Kingdom got serious about social media warfare. The 77th Brigade was created “to draw together a host of existing and developing capabilities essential to meet the challenges of modern conflict and warfare. It recognises that the actions of others in a modern battlefield can be affected in ways that are not necessarily violent,” said the British Ministry of Defense. President Obama recently signed an executive order to give the US Office of Science and Technology Policy exceptional social media capabilities. But can these agencies go far enough? In the past, we have known our enemies – where they lived, where they worked, who they were, what they read, what they believed and what

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

we had to do to neutralize the threat they posed. Today we just know what they think.

Self-Organizing Weapons To understand how to kill an enemy using social media, it would help to understand self-organizing ant colonies or selforganizing robot swarms or even algorithmic art. Most selforganizing systems work by giving a few very simple instructions to completely autonomous entities and letting them act on their own. The instructions Ambassador Danon describes with his graphic tell me that all I need to accomplish the task at hand is a knife and a Jew. Those are pretty simple instructions. But I also need the four components of death by social media: ideators, propagators, supporters and executors. Ideators will come up with the instructions and post them. Propagators will share, retweet or otherwise propagate the instructions. Supporters will not propagate but will tacitly support the propagators. Executors will carry out the instructions.

with very new weapons. Soldiers armed with rifles are fighting side-by-side with civilians armed with smartphones. The result is a synchronized physical and cyber war. The battle is fought, both sides launch a narrative meme, and the most emotionally compelling story wins.

A Social Engineering Arms Race According to my good friend Col. John Fenzel (Ret.), “We are now in a state of enduring social conflict enabled and empowered by social media.” The recent killings in Israel were not ordered by a military commander, not carried out by troops, not perpetrated by terror cells or operatives. They were socially engineered. The key performance indicator in this well-executed, hypertargeted, social media marketing campaign is dead Jews. It’s sickening to think of it this way, but as a strategic advisor who specializes in digital transformation, marketing and data science, I have to call this what it is: a highly successful social engineering hack.

Social Media Meme Mutations

Can It Be Stopped?

In his Pulitzer prize-winning book, The Selfish Gene, Richard Dawkins coins the term “meme” as a concept for discussion of evolutionary principles in explaining the spread of ideas and cultural phenomena. Memes possess many of the attributes we assign to living things. They are born, they procreate, they mutate and at some point, they die. “How to Stab a Jew” is an awful meme, but it’s out there, it is being propagated, and quite sadly and tragically, it is being executed. The Instagram Intifada

In this complex clash of civilizations, evolutionary biology offers a multi-million-year-old lesson on how to stop death by social media: fecundity. The good guys must simply and decisively overwhelm the bad guys with good information. The good information must be programmed better than the bad information, and it must be propagated in overwhelming amounts. We can select the social media world we want to live in and social-engineer our way back to safety.

The names “social terrorism” and “social media warfare” are not quite right. This is a new kind of war against an enemy

You have a Facebook and a Twitter account. Ideate, propagate, support or execute resistance to ISIS. It’s certainly in your power to do so.
