EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

A VOTER'S REVOLT ELECTS TRUMP his being elected as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Commander in Chief (CIC). When it became apparent that Donald Trump could be elected, an MSNBC reporter phoned him for comment. PresidentElect Donald J. Trump said, “I feel that I am at the 17th hole of the National Golf Tournament, with a one-stroke lead. I am going to be the President of all the people in America.” Two things will reveal what kind of CEO & CIC he will become. The first 100 days of his new administration will be the barometer. Trump's initial concern was to calm this nation down...especially its financial sector and the partisans, both Democrat and Republican, who need to re-establish the communication bridges which allow for moving this American nation forward towards its future.

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR The American voter has spoken up with their protest vote! The American People now face the challenge of making another peaceful transition of our nation's leadership from the establishment's of both Democratic and Republican Party leadership to a 'nonestablishment leader' Donald J. Trump, who made contact with the 'anger, disappointment, and frustration' of the 'Silent Majority' who voted in their own perceived best interests. The American working class, especially its middle class, has been violated since 1975 by the 'establishment' of both the Democratic and Republican Parties. The masses of voters have made their personal choices, which in the aggregate, ended up with the election of a real-estate mogul, a billionaire, whose insight into the 'anger, disappointment, and frustration' of the 'America's Silent Majority' resulted in

One thing is certain now: Donald J. Trump had his ear to the ground; heard the concerns of the Silent Majority; conducted a very non-traditional campaign which received support of the masses. The challenge now being faced by all of us is to calm down our partisan emotions so that

we, as a national community, may become engaged and committed in having our new President be a successful world leader. It is important that President Elect Trump collect the right mix of knowledge and talent in his appointments to his Executive Cabinet. Patriotic Americans care about ,and love, this nation which is still the greatest Democracy and the greatest super-power on the face of this world. The challenge we face as a nation,is having elected an entrepreneur as the new Leader of the Free World. Trump will need to deal with the forces that elected him. Trump must craft the neglected reforms: 'income & wealth distribution', establishment of income tax reform wherein all 'individuals' both human and corporate pay their fair share of taxes; initiation of infrastructural repairs and improvements; health care reform; an adequate public safety net for the handicapped, impoverished, and elderly, and an education system having access to all qualified students & trainees (include forgivable loans with public service provisions). In addition, foreign trade and foreign affairs must

be conducted in a manner that enhances world peace and enables 'fair and equitable commerce”. Corporate profits earned 'offshore' need to become taxable wherever banked; corporate individuals need to be monitored to ensure 'fair play' in the public interest. The Trump Transition team has a lot of work to do. My analysis reveals that Trump reachedthe'rustbelt'community containing the angry middle class workers whose jobs were now 'outsourced', and the 'Rural Communities' of America which is traditionally very conservative Republican. The Hillary Clinton campaign reached urban and suburban voting communities which are heavily Democratic. Mainstream Media and its many polls just missed this movement entirely. Secretary Hillary Clinton, in her concession statement, asked that this nation come together to ensure the unity which makes 'America the greatest nation' ever. If you are interested in any particular election outcome, google “Registrar of Voters, County of Santa Clara; go

to “Home Page, Registrar of Voters”; and click on “November 8, 2016 Election Results”. The entire composite election outcome is presented online. Of interest are the following: Kamala Harris was elected U.S. Senator to succeed Senator Barbara Boxer; Ro Khanna (D) defeated Representative Mike Honda (CA District 17); House members Anna G. Eshoo (District 18); Zoe Lofgren (District 19); and Jimmy Panetta (District 20) were elected. CA State Senators Jim Beall (District 15); Bill Monning (District 17) were elected. CA State Assembly members Kansen Chu (District 24); Ash Kalra (District 27); Evan Low (District 28); Mark Stone (Dstrict 29) and Anna Caballero (District 30) were elected. The San Jose City Council will have Sergio Jimenez (District 2); Devon 'Dev' Jane Davis (District 6); and Jimmy Nguyen (District 8). The local voter turnout was a disappointing 47%. It seems that the Latino voter potential has not yet fully participated in this democratic process. Nonetheless EO is proud of its latino community advocacy role.

La Tarea Pendiente Por José López Zamorano Para La Red Hispana Al margen del desenlace de las históricas elecciones del 8 de noviembre, un hecho es claro: Estados Unidos es un país más dividido que hace cuatro años, no solo en términos políticos sino geográficos, étnicos, raciales y hasta culturales.

esa tristemente célebre canasta de racistas, sexistas y xenófobos. Es posible discrepar en temas divisivos como la reforma migratoria, es entendible que existan divergencias legítimas en asuntos como la ley de salud o los acuerdos de libre comercio o en asignaturas sociales sensibles como el aborto, los matrimonios del mismo sexo y las políticas de control de armas de fuego.

Al cabo de una campaña donde uno de los candidatos deliberadamente enfrentó a los estadounidenses entre sí y ofendió a los inmigrantes, en particular a los mexicanos, a las minorías religiosas como los musulmanes, a los veteranos de guerra, a las personas con impedimentos físicos y a las mujeres, las fisuras del tejido social sociales no serán fáciles de surcir.

Pero quiero creer que muchos de los seguidores de Trump, especialmente de la clase blanca trabajadora, votaron a su favor porque encontraron en su mensaje una solución a sus problemas de inseguridad económica, a pesar de que no necesariamente comparten sus expresiones misóginas, racistas o xenófobas.

Sin embargo, me resistió a creer que todos los simpatizantes del millonario Donald Trump caben en

Muchos creemos que la construcción de un muro en la frontera con México o la deportación de millones de

indocumentados no son la solución a los problemas económicos de los Estados Unidos, pero podemos discrepar sin tener que llegar a la descalificación y a las ofensas, que sólo pueden contribuir a radicalizar un ambiente explosivo. De la misma manera resulta irresponsable poner en entredicho, sin pruebas, la integridad del sistema electoral de Estados Unidos y declarar que sólo se aceptaran los resultados cuando nos beneficien. Sembrar sospechas sin fundamento es alentar un caldo de cultivo propicio para un desbordamiento social peligroso. Con frecuencia se asume que la estabilidad de las democracias debe darse por descontada, pero hay suficientes ejemplos mundiales saber que el equilibrio social y la gobernabilidad deben alimentarse con dosis de tolerancia, respeto y sensibilidad a las ideas discrepantes

de los miembros de una sociedad. Es indudable que el liderazgo político de Estados Unidos, no sólo en la Casa Blanca o el Congreso, sino también en las organizaciones de la sociedad civil enfrentará el reto de contribuir a un clima de reconciliación enmarcado en la idea fundacional de que son más las cosas que unen que las que separan a una sociedad como la estadounidense. Pero debe ser una labor cotidiana de todos poner un grano de arena para contribuir y fortalecer ese clima de respeto a las diferencias. Se trata de una responsabilidad compartida en un momento particularmente delicado dadas las fisuras que dejó al descubierto el proceso electoral. La tarea pendiente implica ponerse todos a la altura de las circunstancias Para más información visita www. laredhispana.org

Chicano Solidarity in Present America

Maryah Samarron Special to El Observador Understanding that in the 2016 election America has voted Donald Trump as president of the United States has got people of color hoping to wake up from a nightmare. On Wednesday November 9th I stepped onto the city bus on my daily morning commute to work, for what felt like the most silent and the loudest bus ride of my life. Being from the East Side of San Jose California, where the majority is a Latino (Chicano) Community I can feel and see the hurt, brokenness disappointment and anger of my people; yet I also see us full of strength and courage. Through the silence and the quiet stares I could hear the screams of pain, the shouts of

anger, the marching of footsteps, but also the silent, confident pride of my people. I am a 25 year old Mexican-American, with two of my grandparents whom were born in Mexico. I was born and raised in Northern California. Last year I moved to New York City and found how much discrimination/racism there is against a variety of races. Examples included going into interviews and having someone take one look at me, where I could already see the look on their face that they didn't want me hired because of my ethnic background. This opened my eyes to see that unfortunately not every place is as unified and celebrates cultural variety the way we do here in the Bay Area.

After about a year of experiencing firsthand discrimination I decided to move back to the Bay Area. I took a train ride across the country stopping in major cities such as Washington D.C., Chicago, and Colorado Springs. Along the way I encountered experienced and looks from people I had never gotten in my entire life. Yet, when I would inform someone I was from California it seemed to baffle them how I could be Latina and from such an expensive state, as if I weren't good enough to be from here. It opened my eyes too see how racialism is still very evident in America. Now with Donald Trump elected president, it exposes and shines a light to racist America. So what do we do? What can we do? So many people say we need to not worry and just trust; and although this is a true statement, it is not one that deals with the pain.

our pain any longer. This election has exposed how we, as a country, not only as a culture, and not only as individuals are suffering from the suffocating choke-hold of social discrimination and injustices. We are headed into a generation where we must fight and use our voice to speak for unity and equality. Speak on our pains, our trails, our weaknesses and move on them to inhibit change for the next generations to come. We are not to live in fear but rather consider this a time to show the true bravery we possess as a culture and a people standing for the true roots of the America of our ancestors, in solidarity.

CA EDUCATION ADVOCATES CELEBRATEPASSAGE OF PROPS 55, 58 Suzanne Potter California News Service

remains near the bottom of the nation in perpupil spending and class size average.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Supporters of public education say they're thrilled that voters passed both Propositions 55 and 58 by overwhelming margins.

Proposition 58 also passed, making it much easier for schools to offer bilingual education, by repealing parts of a 1998 law that mandated all children be taught in English-only classes unless their parents requested a waiver each year.

Prop 55 extended a tax on the wealthy for 12 years in order to send about $8 billion to public education annually, while lowering sales taxes. Joshua Pechthalt, president of the California Federation of Teachers, said voters in California took a strong stand for education even as the national election trended the other direction. "When the rest of the country is looking at tax cuts, California's voters are saying, no, the way to fund public education is to ask the wealthy to pay a bit more," Pechthalt said. Education advocates laud the passage of Propositions 55 and 58.(shironosov/iStockphoto)

Prop 55 means schools won't see a return of the massive cuts they suffered during the recession. Nonetheless, at current funding levels, California

Lita Blanc, president of the United Educators of San Francisco and a bilingual teacher herself, said very few schools offer bilingual education right now, but she hopes that will soon change. "It sends a really important message to our children, and to the parents of the children of our classrooms that their culture is valued, their language is valued, and that their children bring something to school that's important, which is their first language," Blanc said. Under Proposition 58, all students will still be required to become proficient in English.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Dos iniciativas sobre educación, llamadas Propuestas 55 y 58, pasaron abrumadamente el martes Noviembre 8, 2016, para deleite de muchos defensores de la educación.

La Propuesta 58 también paso, facilitando mucho a las escuelas el ofrecer educación bilingüe, al revocar partes de una ley de 1998 que ordenaba que a todos los alumnos se les enseñara en clases donde se hablara solo ingles, a menos que los padres pidieran una suspensión cada ano.

La Propuesta 55 amplia 12 anos mas un impuesto a los ricos para destinar unos 8 billones de dolares anuales a la educación publica, mientras bajan los impuestos a la venta. Joshua Pechthalt, presidente de la Federación de Maestros de California (California Federation or Teachers), dice que los votantes de California tomaron una postura firme por la educación, aunque la elección nacional tuvo la tendencia opuesta." "Cuando el resto del país esta buscando la reducción de impuestos, los votantes de California dicen 'No, la forma de fondear la educación publica es pedir a los ricos que paguen un poco mas.' La propuesta 55 significa que las escuelas no verán regresar los recortes masivos que sufrieron durante la recesión. Sin embargo, con los niveles

Lita Blanc, maestra bilingüe y presidenta de los Educadores Unidos de San Francisco (San Francisco United Educators), dice que muy pocas escuelas ofrecen educación bilingüe actualmente, pero espera que eso cambie pronto. "Esto manda un mensaje muy importante a nuestros hijos, y a los padres de los niños de nuestros salones de clases, de que su cultura es valorada, su idioma es valorado y sus hijos aportan a la escuela algo que es importante, que es su lenguaje materno." Bajo la Propuesta 58 a todos los estudiantes se les seguirá exigiendo que lleguen a ser competentes en ingles.

Nutrient-rich Ingredients, Simple Prep Are Keys to Easy Meals BPT With summer in the rearview mirror, many Americans will now be pressed for time: Fall (when kids go back to school) and winter (dominated by the holidays) are jam-packed seasons. It may be difficult to find time for everything you need to do, including eating regular meals together as a family. Research shows that sitting down for family meals yields many benefits, from serving as a time to bond, to instilling healthy dining habits in children. Yet multiple studies also show that only about a third of families actually eat dinner together on a regular basis. Americans commonly cite busy schedules as the biggest hurdle for eating together as a family. "Regularly sitting down to dine with their parents is incredibly healthful for kids, both mentally and physically," says registered dietitian Lyssie Lakatos. "It's well worth the effort to ensure your family can share regular, well-balanced meals together. And you can do it! You just need some creativity, planning and powerfully nutritious ingredients."

table, pouring drinks, gathering ingredients and even cooking. * Disconnect from tech 30 minutes to an hour before the meal. Many families have a no-device policy at the dinner table, but by putting down technology in advance you free up everyone to help out. You'll also ensure no one is late to the table because they have to send one last text - this means you too, parents! "The importance of family meals just can't be understated," Lakatos says. "There's even a month in honor of the family meal September is National Family Meal Month, sponsored by the Food Marketing Institute (FMI) Foundation. It's a great time to get back to having regular family meals together." Here are two easy, delicious and nutritious family meal recipes that take less than 30 minutes to prepare, courtesy of Eggland's Best: Chicken Parmesan Cupcakes

All kids love cupcakes and they love cheese, so this marries the two, plus the nutrition of Eggland's Best eggs-what could be better?

Lakatos offers some tips to help parents honor the healthful tradition of family meal time: * Invest 15 minutes every weekend to plan the week's dinner menus in advance. Knowing what you'll be making ensures you won't have the stress of coming up with ideas at the last minute when everyone is hungry; you'll also be able to shop efficiently for ingredients you know you'll need. Plus, kids will enjoy looking forward to the evening when you'll serve their favorite foods. You can also make the process easy by using an online menu planner.

CHICKEN MIXTURE Ingredients: 1 Eggland's Best Egg (large) 1 pound ground chicken 3 tablespoons Italian-flavored bread crumbs 2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic 1/2 teaspoon onion salt

* Simplicity is a time-saver. Dinner might not be the best time to take risks and prepare something no one has tried before. A simple meal takes less time to prepare, and may also be more enticing to kids. Choose simple, nutritious meals that incorporate the key components of the USDA MyPlate.

1/4 teaspoon pepper Coating 1 Eggland's Best Egg (large), lightly beaten 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

* Choose lean, versatile and delicious proteins - like eggs, lentils or fish - that are nutrientrich. Eggland's Best eggs come from hens fed an all-vegetarian diet of healthy grains, canola oil and a supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp and vitamin E, an antioxidant. They contain three times more vitamin B12, two times more omega-3s, five times more vitamin D, 38 percent more lutein and 25 percent less saturated fat than ordinary eggs.

1/2 cup Italian-flavored bread crumbs Topping 1/2 cup marinara pasta sauce 4 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes 4 Cheese Italian Blend, cut into quarters Directions:

* Get everyone involved. Family meal time is an opportunity to teach kids good nutrition, culinary skills and life lessons, all while bonding in a relaxed atmosphere. Involve children in meal preparation by assigning them age-appropriate tasks such as setting the

BUSINESS

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

​C ELEBRATE OUR VETERANS BY HELPING THEM PROTECT THEIR FINANCES Unfortunately, aspects of a service member’s job often make them more vulnerable to scams. Perhaps most importantly, they have a guaranteed and steady income that scammers would love to have access to. They are also frequently deployed and move around often, which makes staying on top of bills and credit reports more difficult. Additionally, service members are often younger and financially inexperienced, and these qualities may attract scammers. Despite the stereotype of the elderly scam victim, millennials are actually the most likely to lose money to scams.

Better Business Bureau On Veteran’s Day we celebrate our veterans and thank them for the sacrifices they make for our country. However, there’s one sacrifice they don’t expect to be signing up for: being a target for scammers.

Approximately 8.5% of reports to BBB Scam Tracker are from those who identified themselves as an active duty military member, veteran, or spouse. When the data is broken down further, unsettling trends emerge. So far in 2016, the overall median loss to a scam is $330, with an average of 16.5% of reports involving a monetary loss. When it comes to service members, veterans, and their spouses, however, the median reported loss to a scam is

almost $500, with about one in five of reports involving a monetary loss. Reports to BBB Scam Tracker indicate that military members and their families lose more money on average to scams, and appear to be slightly more susceptible to falling victim to a scam. Why is this? It’s hard to tell, but there are some scams that service members, veterans, and their spouses may be especially vulnerable to: • Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes. Military families often could use a little extra help, and scammers may target them because of it. In these schemes, scammers send letters claiming that you’ve won a large amount of money or prize from a sweepstakes or lottery, but to receive it you first have to wire money for processing fees. Additionally, government grant scams may target military members to appear more authentic. • Romance. Military members may be more vulnerable to romance scams because of frequent moves, deployment, being stationed abroad, and the sometimes-lonely nature of the job. Service members may also be more likely to have their photos and identities stolen by

NOVEMBER 11 - 17, 2016 scammers attempting to catfish those looking for love online. These scammers often pretend to be in the military, using the status to explain long distances, gain trust and trick their victims. • Fake Check/Money Order. Reports of this scam only account for about 3% of overall reports and military reports. However, scammers may try to get more money out of those affiliated with the military because of their steady incomes. No one, and especially military members and veterans, deserves to be scammed. Because military families are known to be targeted by scams and unethical business practices, and may need more help in avoiding these scams and fraud, BBB Institute of Marketplace Trust runs the BBB Military Line program. BBB Military Line is tailored to military consumers and their families and provides consumer education materials and resources both online and through local outreach. To learn more, visit bbb.org/military. If you or someone that you know has been affected by a scam, report it to BBB Scam Tracker at bbb. org/scamtracker/ to warn others. You never know, your report could help save someone a lot of money and a big headache.

CELEBRE NUESTROS VETERANOS: AYÚDELES A PROTEGER SUS FINANZAS Better Business Bureau En el Día de los Veteranos, celebramos nuestros veteranos y los agradecemos por los sacrificios que hacen por nuestro país. Sin embargo, hay un sacrificio que no esperan: ser un blanco para los estafadores. Desafortunadamente, unos aspectos del trabajo de un miembro del servicio hacen los más vulnerables a las estafas. Tal vez más importante: tienen un ingreso garantizado y constante a que los estafadores les encantaría tener acceso. También se despliegan con frecuencia y se mueven a menudo, y esto hace mantenerse al día con las cuentas y los informes de crédito más difícil. Además, los miembros militares son a menudo más jóvenes y económicamente inexpertos, y estas cualidades pueden atraer a los estafadores. A pesar del estereotipo de la víctima del estafador ser de edad avanzada, los milenios son en realidad los más propensos a perder dinero a una estafa. Aproximadamente 8.5% de reporte al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB fueron de aquellos que se identificaron como un miembro de servicio activo, veterano, o cónyuge. Cuando nos desglosan los datos, surgen tendencias inquietantes. Hasta ahora en 2016, la pérdida promedia a una estafa para todos informes es $330, con un promedia de 16.5% de informes implicando una perdida monetaria. Para los miembros de servicio, veteranos y sus cónyuges, sin embargo, la pérdida promedio es casi $500, con aproximadamente uno de cada cinco de informes implicando una perdida monetaria. Informes al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB indican que los miembros militares y sus familias pierden más dinero en promedio a las estafas, y parecen ser un poco más susceptibles a ser víctima de una estafa.

¿Por qué es esto? Es difícil decir, pero hay algunas estafas que los miembros militares, los veteranos, y sus cónyuges pueden ser especialmente vulnerables a: • Sorteos/Lotería/Premios. Las familias militares a menudo pueden usar un poco más ayuda, y pueden ser explotadas por ello. En estos esquemas, estafadores alegan que usted ha ganado una gran cantidaddedineroounpremiodeunsorteoolotería, pero para recibirlo primero tiene que enviar dinero para tasas. Además, las estafas de concesión del gobierno pueden elegir como blanco los miembros militares para que parezcan más auténticos. • Cheque Falsa/Giro Postal. Informes de esta estafa representan solo alrededor de 3% de todos informes y de los informes militares. Sin embargo, es posible que estafadores tratan de obtener más dinero de los afiliados con los militares debido a sus ingresos constantes. • Romance. Los miembros militares pueden ser más vulnerables a las estafas de romance debido a sus movimientos frecuentes, el despliegue, ser colocado en otro país, y la a veces solitario naturaleza del trabajo. Miembros del servicio también pueden ser más propensos a tener sus fotos e identidades robadas por estafadores que tratan de engañar a aquellos que buscan el amor en línea. Estos estafadores a menudo pretenden de estar en el militar, utilizando el estatus para explicar largas distancias, ganar confianza y engañar a sus víctimas. Nadie, y especialmente los miembros militares y veteranos, merecen ser estafado. Debido a que familias militares son conocidos por ser víctimas de fraudes y prácticas comerciales poco éticas, y pueden necesitar más ayuda para evitar estafas y fraude, el Instituto de Confianza en el Mercado de

CA WORKS TO PROTECT YOUTH SEX TRAFFICKING VICTIMS IN CRISIS

New safe youth zones are opening as part of a pilot program in Los Angeles and Long Beach to help teenage sex trafficking victims escape their situation. (Andrew Reis/Office of Supervisor Don Knabe)

L.A., Long Beach Launch Safe Youth Zone Suzanne Potter California News Service LOS ANGELES -- California is home to three of the top 13 hot spots for child sex trafficking: Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco. Now LA and Long Beach are launching a new "Safe Youth Zone" to help young victims escape. On Tuesday, officials launched a pilot program that prepares police and fire stations to care for a young person who is running from his or her sex trafficker. Michelle Guymon, director at the Los Angeles Probation Department, said this program refocuses previous safe house efforts to specifically reach out to kids in trafficking situations. "It's force that literally keeps them stuck. And so when kids try to escape that, the level of desperation does escalate," Guymon said. "And so they're looking for that safe place where they can get some support and help."

The program will likely be enlarged to eventually include hospitals as well. A large yellow sticker will be displayed on the front door of each facility identifying it as a safe youth zone. Once a young person seeks refuge in one of these locations, a team will be called in to find the child a place to stay and connect him or her with counseling and other services. Law enforcement will begin promoting the safe youth zone program in schools, in the foster system, in youth shelters and in juvenile hall, Guymon said. More than 130 kids in the Los Angeles area in 2015 said they had been trafficked for sex. "Kids have not been arrested for prostitution but are disclosing that this is happening," Guymon said; "because we're more sensitive than I think we used to be when we labeled them as teenage prostitutes, which was not a sensitive way to really approach the issue." Recently Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill preventing police from arresting minors involved in the sex trade, unless it is for their own safety.

NATIONAL ADOPTION MONTH: LOVE IS LOVE, STUDY SAYS Suzanne Potter California News Service SACRAMENTO, Calif. - A new study finds that adopted children of same-sex couples experience no differences from peers being raised by households with a male and a female. Rachel Farr, a developmental psychologist and psychology professor at the University of Kentucky, studied nearly 100 families made up of a mix of two men, two women and couples of the opposite sex. After ten years of evaluating them, she reached one conclusion. "Parent sexual orientation, the family structure, is not emerging as anything that's having any sort of lasting effects," she said. "Rather, it's the processes going on within the family, the quality of family relationships, or parenting, that seem much more important." Earlier this year, a federal judge ruled that banning same-sex couples from adopting children is

unconstitutional, making gay adoption legal in all 50 states. It's been legal in California since 2003. In her report, Farr also concluded that, overall, children had fewer behavior problems over time when parents were less stressed and in more satisfying relationships. According to the U.S. Census, there are 594,000 same-sex couple households in the country, and 115,000 of them reported having children. Farr said while laws are catching up with society, research such as hers can aid in setting the policies of individual agencies and perceptions of birth mothers and fathers. "Individual adoption agencies might even have different policies that in some ways may be either discriminatory or just not as welcoming, and I think that is an area where we still need more research and more room to grow," she explained. According to the Williams Institute, an estimated two million LGBT people are interested in adopting. November is National Adoption Month.

Joint Statement from California Legislative Leaders on Result of Presidential Election

DECLARACIÓN DE LÍDERES LEGISLATIVOS DE CALIFORNIA SOBRE ELECCIÓN PRESIDENCIAL SACRAMENTO – El presidente del Senado de California, Pro Tempore, Kevin de León (D-Los Ángeles) y el presidente de la Asamblea de California, Anthony Rendon (D-Paramount), emitieron la siguiente declaración sobre los resultados de las elecciones presidenciales del miércoles 9 de noviembre de 2016:

California, por mucho tiempo, ha sido un ejemplo a seguir para otros estados. Y California defenderá a su gente y nuestro progreso. No vamos a permitir que una elección sea un revés para el progreso de generaciones en la cima de nuestra histórica diversidad, el avance científico, la generación económica y un sentido de responsabilidad global.

Hoy despertamos sintiéndonos extranjeros en tierra extraña, porque ayer los estadounidenses expresaron sus opiniones sobre una sociedad pluralista y democrática que es claramente inconsistente con los valores de la gente de California.

Estaremos comunicándonos con los funcionarios federales, estatales y locales para evaluar cómo una Presidencia Trump podría afectar potencialmente los fondos de programas estatales en curso, las inversiones creadoras de empleos que dependen del comercio exterior y la aplicación de las leyes federales que afectan los derechos de las personas que viven en nuestro estado.

Nunca nos hemos sentido más orgullosos de ser Californianos. Por un margen de millones de votos, los californianos rechazaron abrumadoramente la política alimentada por el resentimiento, la intolerancia y la misoginia.

SACRAMENTO – California Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) and California Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Paramount) released the following statement on the results of the President election on Wednesday November 9th, 2016:

California has long set an example for other states to follow. And California will defend its people and our progress. We are not going to allow one election to reverse generations of progress at the height of our historic diversity, scientific advancement, economic output, and sense of global responsibility.

Today, we woke up feeling like strangers in a foreign land, because yesterday Americans expressed their views on a pluralistic and democratic society that are clearly inconsistent with the values of the people of California.

We will be reaching out to federal, state and local officials to evaluate how a Trump Presidency will potentially impact federal funding of ongoing state programs, job-creating investments reliant on foreign trade, and federal enforcement of laws affecting the rights of people living in our state. We will maximize the time during the presidential transition to defend our accomplishments using every tool at our disposal.

We have never been more proud to be Californians. By a margin in the millions, Californians overwhelmingly rejected politics fueled by resentment, bigotry, and misogyny. The largest state of the union and the strongest driver of our nation’s economy has shown it has its surest conscience as well. California is – and must always be – a refuge of justice and opportunity for people of all walks, talks, ages and aspirations – regardless of how you look, where you live, what language you speak, or who you love.

El estado más grande de la unión y la locomotora de la economía de nuestra nación ha demostrado que también tiene su conciencia más tranquila. California es - y debe ser siempre - un refugio de justicia y oportunidades para las personas de todos los orígenes, lenguas, edades, y aspiraciones - independientemente de su apariencia, dónde vivan, qué idioma hablen, o a quiénes amen.

Estaremos utilizando al máximo el tiempo durante la transición presidencial para defender nuestros logros, usando cada herramienta a nuestra disposición. Aunque Donald Trump haya ganado la presidencia, no ha cambiado nuestros valores. Estados Unidos es más grande que cualquier hombre o partido. No seremos arrastrados de vuelta al pasado. Lideraremos la resistencia a cualquier esfuerzo que destruya nuestro tejido social o nuestra Constitución. California no era una parte de esta nación cuando comenzó su historia, pero ahora somos claramente los encargados de mantener su futuro.

Pelosi Statement on 2016 Election to come together and find common ground. Only by recognizing and respecting the important contributions that all Americans make to our country’s success can we build an inclusive and stronger future for America.

While Donald Trump may have won the presidency, he hasn’t changed our values. America is greater than any one man or party. We will not be dragged back into the past. We will lead the resistance to any effort that would shred our social fabric or our Constitution.

“Millions of people are proud of the candidacy and leadership of Hillary Clinton. We are inspired by her, thank her and know that she will continue to be a magnificent force for good in our country.

California was not a part of this nation when its history began, but we are clearly now the keeper of its future.

Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement on the results of the 2016 election:

RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA LEGALIZED IN CALIF.: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Two-Thirds of Santa Clara County Voters Approve $950 Million Measure A

SAN JOSE, CA—Santa Clara County voters took an historic step November 8, 2016 by addressing the most pressing challenge facing residents—the lack of affordable housing.

Californians have voted to legalize recreational use of marijuana for people ages 21 and older. (growweedeasy/Morguefile)

Suzanne Potter California News Service SACRAMENTO, Calif. - At the stroke of midnight on Wednesday November 9th, 2016, recreational use of marijuana became legal in California - but there are a few important details about the new law.

Use of medical marijuana continues as before. Retail sales of recreational marijuana won't be allowed until statelicensed businesses open their doors in January 2018. Gieringer said it's important to note that lighting up in public is still a no-no.

It now is legal for adults age 21 and older to possess up to one ounce of marijuana or eight grams of concentrated cannabis for personal use. People can carry that amount around, but if they're in a car it must be in a locked container.

"People should also beware that there is no public use allowed," he said, "so, no smoking or consumption of any sort of marijuana in a public place. You have to do it privately; and no smoking or even vaping in nonsmoking areas."

Dale Gieringer, director of the California chapter of the National Organization for Reforming Marijuana Laws (NORML), said there are limits on how much people are allowed to grow.

It also is illegal to smoke or vaporize marijuana at or within 1,000 feet of a daycare or school, except in a private residence that happens to be near those types of facilities.

"They can also grow up to six plants at their residence in a secure, locked location," he said, "preferably indoors, but outdoors in locations that permit it."

More information about Proposition 64 from the California Secretary of State's office is online at <voterguide.sos.ca.gov>.

The results counted so far show the Measure A campaign for affordable housing winning with over 67% of the votes cast. “We are thrilled with the results so far, “said Supervisor Cindy Chavez, who is a driving force behind the effort. “The trend all night showed Measure A gaining a small percentage increase every time the votes were tabulated. We are cautiously optimistic that this trend will continue as the late votes and late absentee ballots continue to be counted.” Measure A would provide $950 million in bond funds for affordable housing targeted towards various populations impacted by this crisis including the homeless, low income families, the disabled, veterans and first-time home buyers. “This campaign has been a true partnership of our non-profit organizations, nonprofit housing organizations, labor, business, homeless advocates, elected officials in every city of the County and hundreds of volunteers,” said Supervisor Dave Cortese who also led the effort. “A unique partnership of organizations came together to place this measure on the ballot and hopefully pass Measure A. We look forward to continuing this partnership with all these organizations once the final results are tallied.” Supervisor Chavez also said, “These results show the power and commitment of this County that we can come together

and solve the most pressing issue we face as a community—the lack of affordable housing. I’m so proud to be part of this historic campaign. We believe these results will hold up, but we need to count every vote to be sure.” Santa Clara County has thousands of ballots left to count, which may take several weeks to be completely finished. Measure A had a broad and diverse coalition of campaign supporters including Supervisor Dave Cortese and John Sobrato, Sr., who led the campaign finance committee. Supporters included the VMC Foundation, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, Destination: Home, the Housing Trust Silicon Valley, the Health Trust, EAH Housing, the Sobrato Organization, SV@ Home, Eden Housing, Bridge Housing, Charities Housing, Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County, George Marcus and Affiliated Companies, the Related Companies of California, Non-Profit Housing Association, the Silicon Valley Community Foundation and MidPen Housing. Other notable endorsements and supporters came from the Leagues of Women Voters of Santa Clara County, Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley, Veterans Voice, Downtown Streets Team, SPUR, the Bay Area Council, the Registered Nurses Professional Association, the South Bay Labor Council, the Building Trades Council, Working Partnerships USA, the Center for Employment Training, and the Law Foundation of Silicon Valley. Over 150 local elected leaders and newspapers across Santa Clara County also supported Measure A.

UNA CONVERSACIÓN SOBRE EL FUTURO ENERGÉTICO DE CALIFORNIA

Una década de liderazgo climático P O R TO N Y E A R L E Y, P R E S I D E N T E Y C E O D E P G & E C O R P O R AT I O N

CALIFORNIA TIENE UNA REPUTACIÓN MUY BIEN GANADA como un lugar donde la innovación y la invención son ingredientes clave para el éxito del estado. Como la sexta mayor economía del mundo, California lidera el país en una amplia gama de campos que incluyen la tecnología, el entretenimiento y la agricultura. Afortunadamente, otra área en la que estamos estableciendo la pauta para el resto del país es en el campo de la energía limpia y sostenible. Las amenazas del calentamiento global no pueden ser minimizadas. En California, estamos viviendo una sequía histórica que ha dejado colinas áridas, montañas sin nieve y ha secado lagos. El 2016 está en camino a convertirse en el año más caluroso jamás registrado, además el aumento del nivel del mar amenaza la viabilidad a largo plazo de muchas de nuestras comunidades costeras. Hace diez años, California aprobó la Ley de Soluciones al Calentamiento Global, una ley innovadora para combatir el calentamiento global y reducir drásticamente los gases de efecto invernadero (GEI).También conocida como AB 32, fue el primer programa en el país en adoptar un enfoque integral y de largo plazo para abordar el cambio climático, y hacerlo mientras se mantiene una economía sólida en nuestro estado. PG&E se enorgullece de ser el primer proveedor importante de energía en California que apoyó la AB 32, y ha estado a la vanguardia de la implementación de nuevas tecnologías y programas para

tanto, nuestro producto interno bruto en 2016 creció más rápido que el de cualquier otro estado. Actualmente, la energía eléctrica que PG&E proporciona a sus clientes se encuentra entre las más bajas de emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero en la nación. De hecho, más del 55% de la energía que PG&E suministra proviene de fuentes que no emiten gases de efecto invernadero. Las tasas de emisiones de dióxido de carbono de PG&E, verificadas independientemente, son aproximadamente un tercio del promedio nacional entre los proveedores de electricidad. Incluso con estos avances, queda mucho por hacer. Sabemos que con el fin de alcanzar los objetivos del programa más ambicioso en Norteamérica para la reducción de gases de efecto invernadero, según lo propuesto por el Gobernador Jerry Brown, necesitaremos innovación, compromiso y colaboración de todas las partes interesadas. Además, la realidad es que California no puede hacerlo solo. Necesitamos construir un modelo que sea lo suficientemente flexible para incorporar a otros estados, y sí, también otros países. Todos ellos nos ven como un modelo a seguir.

Nuestro progreso en energía limpia ha superado lo que muchos creían posible hace diez años, desde las ganancias masivas en energía renovable hasta el avance en la electrificación de vehículos. reducir las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero. El experimento audaz de la Ley de Soluciones al Calentamiento Global ha rendido frutos. Nuestro progreso hacia una energía limpia ha superado lo que muchos creían posible hace diez años, desde las ganancias masivas en energía renovable hasta el avance en la electrificación de vehículos.

A base de energías renovables

Los objetivos de la AB 32 eran reducir las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero a los niveles de 1990, en el año 2020. Ahora, California ha elevado los estándares con el objetivo de reducir las emisiones en un 40% por debajo de los niveles de 1990, durante la próxima década y media. Para ayudar a lograrlo, el estado aprobó el año pasado un nuevo requisito: al menos el 50% de toda la energía se debe obtener de fuentes renovables a más tardar para el 2030. En PG&E, apoyamos estos objetivos. Pero instamos a que el futuro no se enfoque exclusivamente en las energías renovables, sino más bien en objetivos libres de GEI y soluciones regionales. Creemos que los grandes desafíos, como el cambio climático, requieren grandes soluciones. En las próximas semanas, vamos a compartir más detalles acerca de algunos de los programas innovadores que estamos implementando para transformar nuestra infraestructura de energía para el futuro. Esperamos con interés trabajar juntos para construir un futuro con energía limpia y hacer de California el modelo para la economía del siglo XXI.

APALA Responds to Presidential Election Results

"We are so disappointed in the outcome of this election, but we respect the democratic process and will work with the Trump administration to better the lives of all working people," stated American Federation of State, County, & Municipal Employees (AFSCME) International Vice President and APALA National President Johanna Puno Hester. "Now more than ever we need to ensure that our communities are not victimized by Islamophobic, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, and racist rhetoric and actions. We need to hold America to a higher standard."

APALA Executive Director Gregory A. Cendana declared: "We’re hurting, our communities our hurting, but we won't stop fighting. Under a Trump administration, we're going to have to stand strong to fight for the issues we care about. Immigration. Black Lives Matter. Ending Islamophobia. We're taking a stand for our communities. Seeing where the hearts and minds of Americans truly lie is quite frightening. But we cannot stop now because our work to dismantle this white supremacist system becomes that much more important.”

Monica Thammarath, APALA 1st Vice President and Senior Liaison at the National Education Association (NEA), added: "This is an incredible step backwards for our country. A lot has to be said to elect a candidate who has ran a campaign on racism, misogyny, and xenophobia instead of electing the most qualified candidate in our lifetime. We must take this as a call to action and

Mike Honda Statement on the General Election for California’s 17th Congressional District: Silicon Valley, CA -“My commitment to public service has always been about expanding opportunities for working families. I am incredibly proud of my track record of delivering for workers, seniors and middle class families. All the work I have done in my career, every decision I have made, every action I have taken has been to give all Americans the tools and conditions to build a country that works for everyone. A country with a strong economy, a cleaner environment, a country that protects the civil rights of all, a country that is the envy of the rest of the world. I am proud of my service to this region, I’ve seen it grow from the Valley of Heart’s delight to Silicon Valley. I am honored to have been apart of that growth and transformation.

I congratulate my opponent on his victory in this hard-fought campaign to represent the people of California’s 17th Congressional District. Now is the time to come together as a party and unite around the progressive values we hold dear. I want to thank my family for their ongoing support, and the hardworking staff, volunteers, and supporters who have stood with me throughout my career. It is a testament to the support you have shown for our collective cause that helped me to achieve all the things I have in these 16 years I served as your representative in Congress and the many earlier years of public service. This work is too important to stop, I look forward to continue working with you in pursuit of our ideals.”

HOW WILDLIFE HAS BEEN AFFECTED AROUND THE SITE OF THE CHERNOBYL NUCLEAR MELTDOWN IN RUSSIA topsoil layer where such insects survive and reproduce. Even apparently healthy wildlife was forbidden from resale because of the dangerous levels of radioactivity. The dangers of radiation led to a government-mandated eviction of the radioactive territory soon after the 1986 explosion.

These days, wildlife is thriving around the site of the nuclear reactor meltdown at Chernobyl in the Ukraine three decades ago. Credit: NASA.

Roddy Scheer & Doug Moss EarthTalk The Chernobyl disaster confirmed everyone’s worst nightmares about the awesome power of nuclear reactions. When the Ukrainian reactor collapsed, the radioactive fallout profoundly contaminated the surrounding environment, affecting any living beings located within the so-called “Exclusion Zone” of 30 kilometers around the reactor’s shell. Acute radiation poisoning annihilated a large pine stand, since renamed “the Red Forest,” while many animals suffered significant physical or mental abnormalities. Invertebrates in the area suffered particularly dramatic population crashes, as most radioactive material resides in the

However, 30 years of isolation from humans has proven to be the most beneficial consequence of the disaster. After the initial devastation of the radioactive fallout, species began to adapt to the higher levels of radiation. Indeed, species diversity and populations are actually healthier now than in most other forests in Eastern Europe. This recognition from the Ukrainian government led to the Exclusion Zone’s establishment as one of the largest wildlife sanctuaries in Europe in 2007. Some rare and endangered species, including lynx and the European bison, have returned to the area and can be found in higher densities than in radiation-free forests. Even the Przewalski’s Horse, extinct in the area and artificially reintroduced to the Exclusion Zone in the 1990s, has flourished; the population has reached stability and is even starting to spread out beyond the protective fencing of the Zone. The question remains of how these animals are able to sustain such high levels of radiation without succumbing to its deadly effects. Recent studies of the Chernobyl region by wildlife biologists Anders Pape Møller and Timothy Mousseau have identified serious consequences of radiation, even within thriving populations. Mutations among affected Exclusion Zone species include higher rates of cataracts, partial albinism, and physical variation. However, it appears the deadly mutations took their toll on populations immediately. Subsequent

surviving generations have shown amazing adaptability. Møller and Mousseau conclude that while radiation is inarguably bad for the environment, its impact on wildlife is far overshadowed by the effects of typical human development. While no one would have wished for the Chernobyl meltdown, environmentalists point out the silver lining of being able to monitor wildlife population in the absence of human populations and activities. Chernobyl is a primary example of ecosystem resilience as capable of overcoming radioactive devastation — and can teach us all a lesson about the importance of setting aside at least some wild areas just for wildlife. Furthermore, the experiences at Chernobyl and in the intervening years illustrate the benefits of preservation over conservation. While conservationists encourage sustainable use of natural resources as optimal for wildlife health, Chernobyl shows the incredible benefits to wildlife of just leaving vast swaths of land alone and letting the animals just get on with their lives.

NOVEMBER 11 - 17, 2016

Majo Cornejo: Cantando la canción de México Arturo Hilario El Observador Ya viene un sueño de México en una producción como ninguna. La área de la bahía será anfitrión de Luzia, una producción de Cirque du Soleil empezando con San Francisco de noviembre 16, 2016 a enero 29, 2017 y después en San Jose de febrero 9 a marzo 19, 2017. Esta producción enfoca la variada cultura, historia, y regiones de México. El nombre de Luzia viene de las palabras 'luz' y 'lluvia', usando estos dos elementos para destacar lo brillante y lo oscuro de la tierra mexicana en forma de una interpretación descrito como “sueño despierto”. Tuvimos la oportunidad de conversar con Majo Cornejo, cantante en el show de Luzia, sobre sus experiencias en el su viaje desde México hasta Montreal, Canada donde se encuentra el sede de Cirque du Soleil. Hola Majo, muchas gracias por la oportunidad. Para empezar, nos das una idea de donde vienes?

las flores de Cempasúchil, muertos, el papel picado pero es un show muy muy bonito de México sin embargo no cae en cliché. Es una producción muy cuidada, el diseñador de arte es mexicano, Eugenio Caballero, y el se encargó de todos los detalles de Luzia. Como puedes describir los visuales de esta producción? Que es lo que representa? Mira el show se llama Luzia y lo que representa es la luz y la lluvia. Durante el show hay un juego muy muy bonito como la luz que es México la luz que tenemos los mexicanos, la chispa, el humor y bueno lo que querían representar era la lluvia, alomejor no todo es lindo pero sin embargo la luz siempre prevalece y es muy lindo la imagen que da Luzia. A mi como mexicana, me hace sentir muy orgullosa y una parte muy importante que es para mi la música, es muy representativa, hay gente que dice ‘me sentí muy identificado con la música, siento que es muy mexicana', y yo como mexicana cantándola en Luzia toda las noches me hace sentir muy orgullosa. Cual es un aspecto favorito del show para ti?

Yo nací en México en el distrito federal y toda de mi familia es de artistas, de músicos, productores, la verdad todo empezó de allí. Mi mamá es cantante de ópera y mi papa es guitarrista, desde que soy bebe vi todo eso, algo muy presente y mi familia siempre me ayudó mucho a desarrollarme en ese medio.

Yo creo que mis compañeros. Yo todo los días pienso que son superhéroes, después de cada show veo como siguen entrenando veo como se siguen preparando y eso a mi me motiva mucho a preparar. No hago nada acrobático pero es una de las cosas que me gusta mas a mi en el show. La motivación, empujada por mis compañeros, es super bonito. Hay gente muy talentosa y me siento muy contenta por eso.

Majo, que fue la ruta a llegar a trabajar con Luzia?

Porque será una noche especial si va la gente a ver a Luzia?

Yo estaba en un reality show en México que se llamó “Creando Boleros” y en el programa subía muchos videos y muchas cosas mías cantando entonces el circo vio mis videos y pues mande mis videos al circo y entonces empecé el proceso de audición de 8 meses. Después de 8 meses me llevaron a Montreal y allí pase la ultima audición y me quede para Luzia. Cuando empezó el proceso de audición y no sabia que iba a audicionar para Luzia, solamente para el circo y ya mucho después incluso de que ya firmará me dijeron que era para el proyecto de Luzia, y ya. Pero fue muy bonito.

El Cirque du Soleil siempre va ser garantía. Es un show hermoso de calidad mundial no van a perder tiempo, van a quedar asombrados se los prometo con todo mi corazón. Luzia es un show que toca corazones es un show que se dedica a cambiar vidas.

En tus propias palabras, como puedes introducir a la producción de Luzia? El show es basado en la cultura mexicana, yo te podría decir que no es un estereotipo oh la gente que viene no esperen que vean como la bandera y si se ven cosas como el mariachi

MIERCOLES 16 DE NOVIEMBRE AMC EASTRIDGE 15 7:00 PM

Haz aprendido algo de tu propio país o de tu misma después de trabajar en la producción? Creo que he reafirmado que México es un país que está saliendo adelante a pesar de todo y que todos los mexicanos son muy luchones, muy perseverantes muy trabajadores y la verdad soy muy orgullosa. Fuera ya de México me he dado cuenta que hay muchos mexicanos triunfando por todo el mundo y yo me siento muy muy contenta por eso, es algo que me llena de orgullo, poder ver a muchas personas que se esfuerzan y luchan y son valiente.

GET TO KNOW BAILEY AND DESTINY OF “FINDING DORY”

Bailey (voiced by Ty Burrell) and Destiny (voiced by Kaitlin Olson) in “Finding Dory”. Photo Credit: Disney Studios

Ty Burrell & Kaitlin Olson give their impressions of working on “Finding Dory”, which is on video November 15th Arturo Hilario El Observador Bailey and Destiny are two of the characters in Pixar Animation Studios' follow up to 2003 “Finding Nemo”. The following is our conversation with Ty Burrell & Kaitlin Olson on their characters and the behind the scenes on creating “Finding Dory”. Hello Ty and Kaitlin. To start, could you describe your characters in the film? Ty: Destiny is a whale shark and Bailey is a beluga whale that are at the Marine Life Institute and Dory is trying to find her parents and she enlists the two of them for help and they’re kind of a motley crew. Kaitlin: They’re a little handicapped. Destiny can’t swim very well she’s nearsighted and bailey thinks that his echolocation is broken, but it’s not. Ty: He’s just neurotic. What are Bailey and Destiny's dynamic like? Kaitlin: These two have been living next to each other for a very long time. They’re like single neighbors. They bicker like brother and sister but ultimately have to work as a team.

Which is so much fun. Ty: By the way that’s a new sitcom we’re doing in the fall. (laughs) Could you describe what it was like working with the Pixar team? Kaitlin: It was heaven. They’re amazing they’re like a well oiled machine and are so brilliant, it’s such a special opportunity and I just feel completely honored to be a part of it. Andrew Stanton is such a great director and such an actor friendly director so it’s a little strange to be doing voice over and you’re just standing at a microphone and not typically working with other actors, but it’s great because Andrew can act and he does do little parts in the movie.

Kaitlin: They’re really dedicated to rehabilitation and you know, dealing with sick fish who think that they’re sick. It’s actually really cool and there is an underlying theme throughout the movie that it lends itself to. Addressing the problem with our oceans, it’s so important to take care of all our species. I just think it’s a really great setting to have a bunch of fish because if you have damaged characters they’re just much more interesting. Ty: We were kind of talking about it before, the more i’m hearing other people talk about this movie the more i'm realizing how much is in this movie. There’s so many messages, there’s one about the environment, that it’s really valuable, that there’s an interconnectedness that I think they’re trying to make clear in this.

Ty: They totally live up to the hype. When they asked about doing this I just jumped at the chance and the pixar films are not just my favorite animated films but some of my favorite films of all time. I was just really thrilled to be in the room with them and it just so happened to be totally funny and friendly and just making us look good. It’s an incredible thing. I haven’t done a ton of voice over but I’m slowly learning that to get to a certain sound you have to be willing to look like you’re having a seizure and they’re such easy people to do that in front of.

Why is this a good film for people to check out?

Kaitlin: And be willing to look really ridiculous and have people stare at you.

Kaitlin: Yeah, and if you have kids you know that it’s really exciting to find a kid movie that your kids love that you also love. It’s just a great family outing because everyone will love the movie and that’s really hard to find.

Can you talk about the new setting of the Marine Life Institute. How does that play into the story?

Ty: I think for the same reasons they fell in love with Dory in “Finding Nemo”. Disney and Pixar tell stories better than anybody. They’re not afraid to handle complicated ideas and this is true for “Finding Nemo” and absolutely true for “Finding Dory”. they find a way to do it, handle serious things like loss and trying to find your family, but somehow do it in a lighthearted way that’s very funny and kind of has you through the whole movie. They never cease to amaze me.

Mario Jiménez Castillo El Observador Podemos describir al Reiki como un asombroso método de sanación física y espiritual que está ligado con creencias y filosofía budistas. La palabra Reiki significa, Rei:universal y ki:energía vital. El Reiki es un método natural para curar que utiliza básicamente las manos como canalizadoras de energía, este método fue redescubierto y desarrollado por el doctor japonés Mikao Usui a finales de 1800. Desde esa época hasta entonces han sido miles y miles de personas quienes se han beneficiado de las maravillas del Reiki, que no solamente es utilizado para hacer curaciones sino también para nivelar y mejorar la energía corporal, incrementar sentimientos como la caridad, la comprensión, la tolerancia y la compasión, ganar autoestima, disfrutar de la relajación y sobre todo hacer y desear el bien a los demás y al mundo entero. La filosofía del Reiki se basa en cinco principios básicos: Este día no se preocupe, este día no se enoje, honre a sus padres, maestros y gente mayor, gánese la vida honradamente y sobre todo, muestre gratitud por todo ser viviente. Para llegar a ser un experto en Reiki se necesita realizar estudios y cursar tres grados principales que se adquieren en intervalos de tiempo determinados, sin embargo; cualquier persona que goce de buena voluntad puede comenzar a dar Reiki a otras personas. Muchos principiantes se inician en el Reiki, haciendo curaciones a plantas y mascotas. Si observa una planta triste, reseca y sin brillo, dele un poco de agua y coloque sus manos sobre la misma por unos cuantos minutos, envíele buena energía y luego espere, en pocas horas le sorprenderá el cambio. Lo mismo puede hacer con una mascota

que muestre tristeza y falta de vigor, coloque sus manos sobre la cabeza por cinco minutos y otros cinco sobre el abdomen, hágalo tres veces al día durante tres días, el resultado le sorprenderá. El Reiki se basa en las posturas de las manos en diversas áreas del cuerpo especialmente el área de las chacras. Existen doce posturas principales de las manos para tener una sesión completa de Reiki, aun así en muchas ocasiones será necesario dar Reiki solamente en zonas requeridas, estas zonas se pueden descubrir analizando el aura del paciente, pasando las manos por todo su cuerpo a una distancia de cinco pulgadas entre el cuerpo y las manos o específicamente la zona que el paciente sepa o identifique como causa de enfermedad o dolor. Si siente dolor de cabeza o padece de migrañas, coloque sus manos en su frente durante cinco a siete minutos, repita la operación en el área occipital y una vez más en el área temporal. Hágalo tres veces al día si lo hace convencido que el Reiki le ayudará, prontamente se aliviará. Para dar Reiki es necesario contar con buena salud, tener buenos propósitos, querer hacer el bien y desearle el bien al prójimo. Para enviar Reiki a la naturaleza y al planeta, abrace un árbol por varios minutos, envíe sus mejores deseos de amor a la tierra y a todo ser vivo, experimentará una hermosa sensación de paz y vitalidad. Las personas enfermas que reciben tratamiento médico pueden a la vez recibir Reiki como método de curación alternativo. Al recibir ambos tratamientos los pacientes mejoran con mayor rapidez. Envíe Reiki a sus seres queridos, amigos, conocidos y a toda la humanidad, ¡Toda la buena energía que envíe y regale al universo retornará a usted transformada en bendiciones!

DANI MATHERS: When a Playboy Playmate Exposes Too Much

Shelly Palmer When the opportunity presented itself, Playboy Playmate Dani Mathers decided to covertly Snap a picture of a naked 70-yearold woman and caption it, “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either.” Her Snap went viral, as Snaps often do. She has been charged with “dissemination of private images,” a misdemeanor in Los Angeles punishable by up to 6 months in jail. Those are the facts of the case, and they are undisputed. When called out by @bonniereynolds, @ danimathers responded, “I was sending it to a friend & that private conversation shouldn’t have happened either. It was a true mistake and I’m sorry.” Her apology didn’t do much to help her cause. The righteous continue to call her out as a cruel body shammer. The faithful, having accepted her apology, continue to defend her and rationalize her actions. The debate rages on, and regardless of the poignancy of the missives, minds will not be changed. A Technologically Empowered Crime It might be instructive to consider that this crime could not have been committed five years ago. Snapchat didn’t get funded until

April 2012 and its Android app didn’t launch until October of that year. While it’s true that camera phones have been around since May 1999, the ability to distribute an uncensored digital image of a naked person on a global social media network is less than five years old. That said, new and exponentially more sophisticated technologies are emerging at an accelerating pace. Forbidden Planet In 1956, Forbidden Planet, an MGM science fiction thriller (loosely based on William Shakespeare’s The Tempest) premiered at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in LA. The movie is noted for many firsts, including faster-thanlight travel, an anthropomorphic robot aptly named “Robby the Robot” who could have been nominated for “Best Actor in a Supporting Role,” and a fully electronic musical score. But this motion picture is important to us because it presciently describes the plight of an ancient race whose advanced technology destroyed them in an unusual way. As the story unfolds, we learn that our space explorers have landed on a planet once inhabited by the Krell, a highly advanced native race that suddenly died out 200,000 years before. At the climax of the film, we find out that a mysterious intruder (that

has been selectively killing off the explorers) is actually a technology that empowered the Krell to unleash “Monsters from the Id.” In less Freudian terms, the technology created invisible, powerful manifestations of individual Krell’s most personal, unspoken, evil and malicious thoughts. It was instantly lethal to the entire race. Dani Mathers’s Id and the Tools That Empower It Dani Mathers looked up and saw a woman who aesthetically offended her. She had a thought … a silent, personal thought. A hackneyed, pop-culture meme came to her: “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either.” It was so clever! So witty. She lifted her smartphone. It’s a bit catty, but it’s sooo perfect. A quick Snap. It’s funny, right? She was done typing the caption before she finished thinking. Well, mean/funny … but it’s OK. A quick tap. It was over in an instant. Dani Mathers’s Id unleashed on an unsuspecting world. Considering what we’ve all been through over the past 18 months, and no matter how it turns out, one thing is certain: we now have all the tools we need to use our thoughts to destroy ourselves. This may have always been true for a small subset of people, but there has never been a time where upwards of 3.5 billion people had this power simultaneously. How many social media friends have you recently unfollowed because of their political position or a statement of values you did not share? It

scares me, and it should scare you too. We may not even need new technologies to unleash our “Monsters from the Id.” Empowered by our existing networks, it may only take the promiscuous distribution of our innermost thoughts for us to face the Krell’s fate. To ensure our posterity, perhaps we can find a balance between “over-the-top political correctness” and “no thought going unuttered.” America’s founding fathers gave us the gift of a republic where the majority rules but the minority is always heard. As we enter the age of technologically enabled reinforcement loops that proportionally amplify opposing points of view, we should respect their wisdom, or we may find ourselves living on a forbidden planet.
