THANKSGIVING PRECEEDS BLACK FRIDAY AND CYBER MONDAY 2017

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR On Thursday, Thanksgiving Day (Día de Gracias), take time to appreciate the many blessings in your life. In this mercenary and predatory competitive Silicon Valley community, many are totally involved, engaged and committed to 'making as much money as possible. As an outcome, many individuals burn out chasing that monetary idol; from the effort to get ahead; to be perceived as successfully wealthy. I have observed this secular society develop since 1960. One observation: Back then my parish had over 600 parishioners who made (and paid) annual pledges. Today, that number is less than 100 even though newly married couples and their kids are beginning to attend again. A lot goes on in a parish... the most important being the continuing education regarding the Decalogue (Ten Commandments). Many individuals never realize that the first four commandments deal with one's personal relationship with GOD (if you are not an infidel, i.e. a non-believer). The fifth through the tenth commandments have to do with one's relationship to other humans, beginning with your parents. Have you honored your father and mother lately?

The next five commandments deal with not committing adultery (almost laughable today since affairs are well publicized). Then the dictums: DO NOT STEAL; DO NO MURDER; DO NOT BE A FALSE WITNESS; AND DO NOT COVET YOUR NEIGHBOR'S PROPERTY. If all of us followed these simple basic rules, a civil order would exist. All issues between you and someone else make up human relationship. Though America began as a Protestant Christian nation, we now have those who believe and practice other faiths: Muslim, Buddhists, Shintoists, etc. A comparative religion would help you understand all have some form of these relationship standards with GOD and with other individuals. Many of us take this universe including this earthly planet for granted. Science and technology, developed recently, establish that our global climate is warming. However there are individuals in leadership positions who are in total denial. I personally have witnessed several glacial retreats at Glacier National Park (an inadvertent observation using photos taken from the same place several years apart) ... that glaciers definitely are melting. I accept the premise that the ocean levels are rising. If I accept reports made by astronomers who observed the universe is still expanding, I wonder if this expanding universe is evidence that GOD is still at work? One's personal faith influences the answer.

While many will enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal at home or with friends, the bounty of agricultural harvests is evident. Still there are the hungry and homeless. The challenge being faced today is that there is much inequity in the distribution of wealth. Something is very wrong when 1% (the very wealthy) own 45% of everything, much of which they had nothing to do with its creation. These investment owners just want profits from the Gold, silver, copper, tin, iron, mercury, lead, lithium, rare earth ores, natural gas and crude oil... all taken from earthly deposits. Can you imagine Silicon Valley without silicon (sand)? Or its electronics without electrons? And water fit to drink is in short supply (despite recent experience with the droughts). So many of us are 'persons of great faith' without realizing that we take for granted that reliable behavior of electrons whose features are used by our electronic devices. Consider that those electrons are present throughout this universe. Electrons exist everywhere in this universe. So, let's give thanks to GOD this Thanksgiving Day 2017, and then plan our efforts to be the first to take advantage of sales of electronic devices, clothing, and other items which will be gifts for members of the family, friends and associates. Marketing professionals have been creative in distracting us from being appreciative of the wonders which exist all around us - wonders that we humans

did not create. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are marketing events designed to make it easier to be a conspicuous consumer who buys goods and services. Some of us think we 'save money' by purchasing an item on sale; we have forgotten we paid for those items and the purveyor still made profits. On November 23, 2017 take time to acknowledge that you have achieved whatever you feel you accomplished with the assistance and support of many others around you who really care about you. And do 'Thank GOD’ for the bounty enjoyed by many. I recommend that we all pay more attention to those who use their elected authority, power and influence to legally steal this wealth from all of ‘us grunts’ who labored to create that wealth. We need to become very committed to the effort which creates and supports the governmental agencies which use tax revenues to assist the disabled, unemployed, homeless, and impoverished. There are enough resources on this earth; the sun reliably provides more solar energy than all humanity will ever use. If we address the equitable challenges faced today, all may be resolved by building the infrastructures needed to fairly distribute what individuals and families need in a very sustainable manner. What becomes an obstacle is the practice of ownership when a better approach is that of practicing good Samaritan stewardship in a very reliable and sustainable manner.

The greed and avarice which are today's obstacles lead to conflict and war. Those who are willing to practice good Samaritan stewardship will enjoy a good life and be blessed by those who receive assistance. This 2017 Thanksgiving Day, think about the changes you need to support in a sustainable manner to achieve peace on earth; to avoid man-made fire and fury which is destructive; and to be very thankful for the freedoms enjoyed in this Democratic nation which must be sustainably supported by ‘We, The People’ who do the work; who have the insights; and who are willing to share the bounty of this nation and this earthly home. We, who are stewards know that we cannot enjoy all the resources that Divine Providence made and provided access thereto. It will take disciplined focus and effort to achieve the peace and satisfaction possible. The secular mercenary approach of conspicuous consumption practiced on Black Friday and Cyber Monday distract us from the achievement of fairly distributing the essential resources needed by all of us in a fair and equitable system which is sustainable using those resources which we did not create. Let's take care of our needy; let's repulse the greedy. Let's vow to enjoy what Divine Providence provides consistently and reliably. Even in these challenging times GOD has blessed America.

UNA SOLUCIÓN JUSTA Y DUR ADER A Por José López Zamorano La Red Hispana Desgraciadamente, la administración del presidente Donald Trump dio el primero paso oficial para despojar a más de 5,300 inmigrantes nicaragüenses del Programa de Protección Temporal (TPS), por lo que perderán su estatus legal a partir de enero del 2019, a menos que se apruebe antes de esa fecha una solución legislativa. En el caso de los inmigrantes hondureños beneficiarios del TPS, estimados en alrededor de 86,000, el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional (DHS) realizó una extensión de seis meses hasta julio próximo, ante de tomar una decisión definitiva con base en la evaluación de las condiciones en el país centroamericano, uno de los más violentos del mundo. Como es natural, la decisión complació a muy pocos. Organizaciones como UnidosUS, antes Consejo Nacional de la Raza, consideró que la decisión afectará

la vida lo mismo de nicaragüenses que de hondureños, pues a unos los pone en la puerta de una eventual deportación y a los otros en la angustia de la separación familiar e inestabilidad económica. La decisión para el caso de los 200,000 salvadoreños y más de 50,000 haitianos debe tomarse 60 días antes de que venzan sus protecciones bajo el TPS en marzo próximo. Cuando la administración Trump redujo en julio pasado la extensión a los haitianos a 6 meses, comparado con los 18 meses tradicionales, envió un claro mensaje sobre los planes futuros para el TPS. Es importante que el gobierno federal tome en cuenta que el impacto de sus decisiones venideras del TPS sobre el futuro de estas miles de familias, tendrá no solo sensible en sus vidas y comunidades, sino también en la de sus hijos nacidos en Estados Unidos, estimados en más de un cuarto de millón. Michelle Lujan-Grisham, la líder de la Fracción Legislativa Hispana del Congreso,

cuando afirma que la pelota queda ahora en la cancha del legislativo. Con ese propósito, la legisladora demócrata de Nueva York, Nydia Velázquez, presentó un proyecto de ley para blindar contra las deportaciones a los beneficiarios del TPS y abrir un compás de espera durante el cual puedan buscar regularizar su situación migratoria. Aunque el alivio no es permanente al menos abriría la puerta para que aquellos “tepesianos” aprovechen posibilidades de regularización, incluidos para aquellos cuyos hijos estadounidenses cumplen 21 años de edad y pueden patrocinarlo. Se trata sin embargo de una situación imperfecta que dejaría a miles sin una ruta clara para permanecer en el país. La abrumadora mayoría de estos salvadoreños, hondureños, haitianos y nicaragüenses se han convertido en empresarios exitosos que han generado empleos, han comparado casas, han pagado sus

impuestos y tienen hijos orgullosamente americanos que solo reconocen a Estados Unidos como su patria. Y muchos argumentan que aún prevalecen en sus países las condiciones que los hicieron salir y buscar refugio. EN Haití, la recuperación del terremoto del 2010 ha sido lenta y hace apenas unas semanas la isla fue azotada por tres huracanes, En EL Salvador, Honduras y Nicaragua aún subsisten problemas de criminalidad y violencia en las calles. A diferencia de DACA, una orden ejecutiva del presidente Barack Obama, los TPS fueron aprobados en un acto de generosidad del Congreso de los Estados Unidos. Sólo se requiere una comunión de voluntades de los legisladores para darles a nuestros hermanos centroamericanos y a sus hijos la justicia duradera que se merecen y que se han ganado a pulso.

ENCOURAGE A LOVE OF READING DURING NATIONAL FAMILY LITERACY MONTH

NOVEMBER 24 - 30, 2017

SCCOE HELPS PAVE THE WAY FOR COMPUTER SCIENCE CONTENT STANDARDS

Here are a few suggestions to help kids to fall in love w ith reading, and to share fun, memorable reading experiences together as a family. * Read A loud -- The easiest way to get kids interested in reading and to build their vocabular y is for parents to read aloud to their children, no matter their ages. K ids w ill of ten skip over words they don't recognize when reading alone, but if they hear their parents say the word, they may ask for the def inition. Putting aside just 15 minutes a week to read aloud to kids can make a dif ference.

For many parents, it's a struggle to get kids to read outside of the classroom, but November is the perfect time to change that, because it's National Family Literacy Month. The impor tance of reading goes well beyond acing a test or getting an "A" on a book repor t. It's a lifelong skill that helps you to better understand the world around you and even yourself. And it's becoming increasingly impor tant to ensure that kids don't become nonreaders in their busy, over-connected daily lives. "Reading opens up so many possibilities, from discovering a new interest to sparking untapped creativ ity. Best of all, it is a great way to spend time together as a family," says Emily Lev itt, v ice president of Education for Sylvan Learning.

* Start a Book Club -- Starting a book club w ith a group of your kid 's friends and their parents is a great way to make reading fun. Give participants a month to read the selected book, then organize a party where ever yone can chat and enjoy themed snacks. * Stick w ith What They Like -- K ids w ill be more inclined to read if it's about something they're already interested in. And if you can share that interest w ith them, that's even better! And because not ever yone loves the same subjects or genres, tr y to at least hook them w ith engaging books on whatever they enjoy -- be it baseball, magic or any thing else. * Monkey See, Monkey Do -- It's important that kids see their parents reading. If they don't, it's an unspoken statement to your child that it's okay not to read. From crossword puzzles to comic books, it's easier than you think to build literacy as a family. Make a conscious ef fort to set time aside time for you and your kids to read together. Not ever y child is a natural born reader and even kids who are great readers can use reading help.

SAN JOSE, CA – December 4-10, the Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) will join several Santa Clara County school districts in hosting an hour of code. This week-long event pairs community partners with school sites to bring coding into the classroom. Schools throughout the county are partnering with software and technology companies including Google, Tableau, and Apple to host coding events for their students and families. Bringing the hour of code to Santa Clara County is part of a larger initiative. “In Santa Clara County, we are fortunate to be at the epicenter of technological innovation, there are many potential opportunities for our students,” says Casey Agena, SCCOE Instructional Technology Coordinator. Agena is part of a large advisory committee, appointed by the State Board of Education

to develop computer science standards for the State of California. California is one of 11 states that have passed legislation to create K-12 curriculum standards for Computer Science Education by July 31, 2019. Committee members from across the state are crafting guidelines which prioritize equity and access for all populations, including rural and lowincome populations. “This is an exciting time; we are pilot testing systemic implementation with our districts, administrators, stakeholders, and community leaders to see what compulsory computer science education may look like across the K-12 spectrum, says Agena. “We are collaborating and sharing our best practices. When the 2020 school year begins, computer science standards will be in place across the state, we want all California schools to be ready.”

Consejos Para Cuidadores de Seres Queridos con Alzheimer’s o Demencia • Sea paciente y comprensivo. Ofrecer consuelo y seguridad puede alentar a la persona a explicar sus pensamientos. • Mantener el contacto visual. Muestra que te importa lo que él o ella está diciendo. • Use el tacto, la vista, los sonidos, los olores y los gustos como una forma de comunicación con la persona. Photo Credit: Pixabay

Dra. Elana Shpall

En conmemoración del Mes Nacional de Concientización sobre la Enfermedad de Alzheimer’s y el Mes Nacional de Cuidadores, On Lok Lifeways reconoce a los cuidadores que asumen el importante papel de cuidar a un ser querido que padece de la enfermedad de Alzheimer’s o la demencia. Cuando se enfrentan con a la responsabilidad de cuidar a un ser querido, muchos cuidadores pueden encontrarse en un rol nuevo y desconocido. Sin embargo, al tomar las medidas necesarias, los cuidadores pueden ayudar a la persona que padece de Alzheimer’s o demencia a mantener un sentido de independencia y, al mismo tiempo, a reducir los niveles de estrés. Al cuidar a un ser querido, considere lo siguiente:

• Evite criticar, corregir o discutir. En cambio, escuche y trate de encontrar el significado en lo que se dice. Si la persona dice algo con lo que no estás de acuerdo, déjalo. • A veces las emociones que se expresan son más importantes que lo que se dice. Busque los sentimientos detrás de las palabras o los sonidos. La Dra. Elana Shpall, es una doctora en medicina geriátrica bilingüe en On Lok Lifeways en San Francisco. On Lok Lifeways (parte de la familia de servicios para personas mayores de On Lok) es un plan integral de salud que brinda atención a largo plazo a personas mayores elegibles que viven en San José, San Francisco y otras partes del Área de la Bahía.

GIVING TUESDAY: SPREAD HOLIDAY CHEER AND GIVE WISELY the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.” In 2015, 1.64 million online gifts raised 177 million dollars. Holiday donations can make a big impact, and it’s easier than you think to get involved. However, it’s also important to be aware that fraudsters may try to take advantage of those in the holiday giving spirit. Hundreds of charity scams, which deceive individuals in to thinking they’re donating to legitimate charities, were reported to BBB Scam Tracker in 2016. Charitable giving should always be rewarding, so keep these tips from your BBB in mind to maximize your impact this holiday season:

The holidays are a season of giving – not just to family and friends, but to charitable organizations as well. According to GivingTuesday.org, Giving Tuesday “kicks off

• Before doing anything, look up the charity at give.org. BBB Wise Giving Alliance (WGA) helps donors make more well-informed giving decisions and promotes high standards of conduct among charities. They evaluate charities against comprehensive Standards for Charity Accountability, and accredit those who meet all 20. When you look up an organization at  give. org, you can see exactly where your donation goes – whether it be to programs, salaries, overhead

NOVEMBER 24 - 30, 2017

costs, fundraising, etc. If you want to ensure your money is going to research rather than education or awareness (or any specific use), you can find these details at give.org. Although participation is voluntary, it should raise a red f lag for donors if charities haven’t disclose any of the requested information to BBB WGA. In 2016, give.org’s BBB WGA charity reports were viewed around 3.5 million times. • Research soliciting organizations. During the holiday season you’re likely to receive phone calls and mailers from charities every day. However, if you’re contacted out of the blue about donating to an organization, be wary. It’s possible that the charity doesn’t actually exist, and is using a fake but legitimate-sounding name and spoofing the Caller ID to create a false sense of security. Even if the organization is legitimate, you may not want to give them your money. BBB has warned in the past about charities that use donations mainly for fundraisers’ fees, salaries, and other administrative costs. So if a charity is asking for an on-the-spot donation outside of your local supermarket or at your front door, don’t succumb to pressure or emotional appeals. Check out the charity online at  give. org and if you still want to donate, do so directly through their website. If you believe you’ve been contacted by a fraudulent charity, report it to BBB Scam Tracker at bbb.org/scamtracker.

• General donation tips. When charities seek support for the same cause, their names can be very similar. Before you give, be sure you have the exact name of the charity to avoid a case of mistaken identity. Avoid donating with cash, and ensure check donations are made out to the organization, not the person soliciting donations. Keep records of your donations; this includes receipts, canceled checks, and bank statements. Keeping these documents will allow you to document your charitable giving at tax time. Although the value of your time as a volunteer is not deductible, out-ofpocket expenses (including transportation costs) directly related to your volunteer service to a charity can be. Be wary of charities that are reluctant to answer reasonable questions about their operations, finances and programs – to be safe, find out this information for yourself at give.org. Unfortunately, you can’t automatically trust an organization just because it claims to be charitable. It’s always better to be safe than sorry, so follow this guide to ensure you don’t regret your charitable donations this holiday season. You can reach your BBB at info@bbbemail.org or (510) 844-2000, or by visiting goldengate. bbb.org.

Martes para Dar: Dona con sabiduría Rebecca Harpster Golden Gate Better Business Bureau

La temporada navideña es un tiempo de donaciones, no solo para familiares y amigos, sino también para organizaciones de caridad. Según GivingTuesday.org, Martes para Dar “comienza la temporada benéfica, cuando muchos se centran en sus donaciones de fin de año.” En 2015, 1.64 millones de regalos en línea recaudaron 177 millones de dólares. Las donaciones del fin de año pueden tener un gran impacto, e involucrarse es más fácil de los que piensa. Sin embargo, es importante recordar que los estafadores pueden tratar de aprovecharse de aquellos que quieren dar durante la temporada de fiestas. Cientos de estafas de caridades, que engañan a las personan a crear que están donando a organizaciones benéficas legítimas, fueron reportados al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB en 2016. Donar a caridades siempre debe ser gratificante, así que recuerde estos consejos de su BBB para maximizar su impacto esta temporada navideña: • Primero, busque la caridad en give. org.  BBB Wise Giving Alliance (WGA) ayuda a los donantes a tomar decisiones más informadas y promueve altos estándares de conducta entre las organizaciones benéficas. Evalúan organizaciones sin fines de lucro contra comprensivos Estándares, y acreditan a aquellos que cumplen con todos los 20. Cuando miras a una organización en give.org, se puede ver exactamente dónde va su donación – programas, salarios, gastos

generales, gastos de recaudación de fondos, etc. Si usted quiere asegurar que su dinero se va a la investigación en lugar de educación o concientización (o cualquier uso específico), puede encontrar estos detalles en give. org. Aunque participando es voluntaria, cuando una organización benéfica no revela ninguna de la información solicitada a BBB WGA, debe ser una señal de advertencia para los donantes. En 2026, los informes de caridades en give.org fueron vistos alrededor de 3.5 millones de veces. • Tenga cuidado si una organización benéfica solicita que usted haga donaciones. Durante la temporada navideña, es probable que va a recibir llamadas y anuncios de organizaciones benéficas cada día. Si usted está contactado por teléfono o correo electrónico acerca de dando a una organización, tenga cuidado. Es posible que la caridad no existe, y está usando un nombre falso que suena legítimo y está falsificando el identificador de llamadas para crear una falsa sensación de seguridad. Incluso si la organización es legítima, es posible que usted no quiera darles su dinero. BBB ha advertido en el pasado sobre las organizaciones benéficas que utilizan las donaciones principalmente para gastos de recaudación de fondos, salarios, y otros gastos administrativos. Así que si una organización benéfica esta pidiendo una donación afuera de su supermercado local, no debe sucumbir a la presión o a solicitaciones emocionales. Echa un vistazo a la caridad en línea en give.org y si todavía quiere donar, hágalo directamente. Si usted cree que ha sido contactado por una organización benéfica fraudulenta, repórtelo al Rastreador de

Estafas de BBB en bbb.org/scamtracker. • Generales consejos para donar. Cuando organizaciones de caridad buscan apoyo para la misma causa, sus nombres son a menudo similares. Antes de dar, asegúrese de tener el nombre exacto de la caridad para evitar un caso de identidad equivocada. No debe usar dinero en efectivo, y si usted dona por medio de cheque, asegúrese de que esta hecho a la organización, no a la persona solicitando donaciones. Asegúrese de mantener registros de sus donaciones. Esto incluye recibos, cheques cancelados y estados de cuenta bancarios; el mantenimiento de estos documentos le permitirá documentar sus donaciones a la caridad durante el tiempo de impuestos. Aunque el valor de su tiempo como voluntario no es deducible, los gastos directamente relacionados con su servicio voluntario (incluyendo los costos de transporte) son deducibles. Tenga cuidado con las organizaciones benéficas que son reacios a responder a las preguntas razonables acerca de sus operaciones, finanzas y programas – para estar seguro, averigua esta información por sí mismo en give.org y dona directamente. Desafortunadamente, usted no puede automáticamente confiar en una organización simplemente porque afirma que es caritativo. Siempre es mejor ser seguro, así que sigue esta guía para asegurarte de que no se arrepientas de sus donaciones a caridades en esta temporada de fiestas. Puede ponerse en contacto con su BBB a través de info@bbbemail.org o (510) 8442000, o en goldengate.bbb.org.

COURT GRANTS COUNTY MOTION TO PERMANENTLY BLOCK TRUMP ADMINISTRATION FROM STRIPPING “SANCTUARY JURISDICTIONS” OF FEDERAL FUNDS

The County of Santa Clara was the first jurisdiction in the nation to seek emergency injunctive relief based on the immediate harms and unconstitutional coercion caused by Executive Order 13768, which President Trump issued on January 25, 2017. The Executive Order purported to grant Trump Administration officials the power to declare state and local governments “sanctuary jurisdictions,” and to deny them federal funding or take other enforcement actions against them on that basis.  As a direct result of the executive order, the County of Santa Clara risked losing roughly $1.7 billion in federal funds— representing nearly 35% of its annual revenue—for critical County services such as medical care, urgent mental health services, public safety, and basic food and nutrition programs. County Counsel and Keker, Van Nest & Peters lawyers argued that the order violated basic separation of powers

SANTA CLARA COUNTY, CALIF.   – In a historic ruling issued November 20th, U.S. District Court Judge William H. Orrick declared unconstitutional the key provision of the Trump Administration’s Executive Order targeting “sanctuary jurisdictions,” and permanently enjoined its enforcement nationwide.  Lawyers from the Santa Clara County Counsel’s Office and its outside counsel, Keker, Van Nest & Peters LLP, argued the case before Judge Orrick on Monday, October 23.  The court, in April, issued a preliminary injunction blocking the provision.  Today’s ruling makes that order permanent.

principles, coerced local jurisdictions into acting as federal immigration enforcement officers, and denied due process. Today, the court agreed, and granted summary judgment on all of the County’s claims.  “This is a historic victory, protecting residents of the County and jurisdictions across the nation from President Donald Trump’s unconstitutional abuse of power,” said County Board of Supervisors President Dave Cortese.  “Our County will continue to welcome and embrace all people, no matter how much this Administration tries to threaten or divide us.”      “This is a clear rebuke of the Trump Administration’s illegal effort to take away federal funding for critical County health, safety, and emergency services,” said County Counsel James R. Williams.  “Today’s decision vindicates a core constitutional principle—that the President cannot use federal funding to threaten local governments.” Twenty amicus briefs were submitted in support of the County’s motion for a permanent injunction.  Combined, the amicus briefs represent a diverse group of individual and entities, including the State of California and other States; cities, counties, sheriffs and police chiefs from around the United States; California community colleges and school districts representing over one million California students; civil rights, immigrant’s rights, and LGBTQ rights groups; unions; law scholars, non-profit service providers; faithbased organizations; and technology companies. 

LOS ANGELES, CA - Organizers for the Women's March California 2018 have announced statewide rallies on Saturday, January 20th, 2018 - 'Hear Our Vote'.

BLACK FRIDAY: HOW TO HAVE YOUR BEST ONE YET!

NOVEMBER 24 - 30, 2017

Black Friday: ¡Cómo tener su mejor día! Viernes Negro puede atraer a los estafadores debido al volumen de compras que se llevan al cabo este día. Está bien usar el Wi-Fi público para leer revisiones de productos o buscar un negocio en bbb.org, pero tenga cuidado al ingresar cualquier información personal cuando usted está conectado. Manténgase alejado de bancar en línea e ir en sus medios sociales: su información de log-in podría ser robada. También es importante ser consciente de su entorno y su billetera – alguien podría tratar de arrebatarlo mientras usted está ocupado comparando televisores.

Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, has become one of the busiest shopping days of the year. Enticed by price cuts on electronics, toys, and everything in between, consumers flock to stores in the hopes of completing their holiday shopping in one chaotic, and savings-filled, day. According the National Retail Federation, 164 million Americans plan to shop during the 2017 Thanksgiving weekend, and holiday retail sales are expected to increase to $682 billion. With that much money on the table, businesses are doing all they can to attract customers and stand out from the competition. However, it’s important to do your research: in 2016, consumers nationwide filed more than 1,300 complaints with BBB against retail stores! Completing your holiday shopping while sticking to a budget is hard enough, so let your BBB help you navigate the complexities of Black Friday with these tips: • Do your research. Before doing business anywhere, make sure to look up the company at bbb.org to see their BBB Business Profile, which includes information about the business, their complaint history, BBB Customer Reviews, and any major advertising issues. It’s also smart to look up prices, find deals, and comparison shop online before the main event so that you can go in with a game plan. Make sure to read product reviews of potential purchases before heading out so that you don’t have any regrets. • Protect your identity. Identity theft can happen at any time, and fraudsters might try to take advantage of the swell of shoppers on Black Friday. It’s ok to use public Wi-Fi to read product reviews and check out businesses on bbb.org, but be careful entering any personal information when connected. Steer clear of online banking and social media – your log-in information could be stolen. It’s also

important to be aware of your surroundings and watch your wallet – someone might try to snatch it while you’re occupied comparing TVs. • Watch out for deceptive advertising. You’re bound to see ads for deals that seem too good to be true. Unfortunately, some of these advertisements may be misleading at best and fraudulent at worst. Make sure to read the fine print, as ads often come with a multitude of restrictions. BBB’s AdTruth campaign can help you identify and avoid common schemes and highlights bad ads. If you see false advertising while out shopping you can report it at bbb.org/council/ad-truth/ as well. • Read up on return and exchange policies. Before you make a purchase, make sure you understand the return and exchange policies, and keep your receipts in one place in case you need to take something back. Some stores may not let you return specific “final sale” items, charge restocking fees, or only refund you in store credit. If you’re shopping for presents, get gift receipts and save all warranty information in case a problem occurs. • Watch out for phishing. You’re bound to receive emails from brands advertising huge sales. But be careful, some might be phishing. Fraudsters can create fake, look-alike business websites to trick you in to entering credit card information, so search for the company’s website independently instead of clicking on any link. Be careful clicking on links on social media or from unfamiliar or unsolicited senders, and look up businesses you don’t know on bbb.org before engaging with them. Check out bbb.org to look up a business, file a complaint, write a customer review, report a scam, read tips, follow us on social media, and more! You can reach your BBB at info@bbbemail. org or (510) 844-2000, or by visiting goldengate.bbb.org.

Black Friday, el día después del Día de Acción de Gracias, es uno de los días de compras más concurridos del año. Atraídos por recortes de precios en productos electrónicos, juguetes y todo lo demás, los consumidores van a las tiendas con la esperanza de completar todas sus compras en un día caótico y lleno de ahorros. Según la Federación Nacional de Minoristas, 164 millones de estadounidenses planean comprar durante el fin de semana del Día de Acción de Gracias de 2017, y se esperan que las ventas minoristas navideñas aumentas a $682 mil millones este año. Con tanto dinero disponible, las empresas están habiendo todo lo posible para atraer clientes y destacarse de la competencia. Sin embargo, es importante hacer su investigación: en 2016, los consumidores presentaron más de 1.300 quejas con BBB contra tiendas minoristas. Completar sus compras navideñas mientras mantenerse bajo de su presupuesto es suficientemente duro, entonces deje que su BBB se ayuda a navegar Black Friday con estos consejos: • Haga su investigación. Antes de hacer negocios en cualquier lugar, asegúrese de buscar el negocio en bbb.org para ver su Perfil de Negocios BBB, que incluye información sobre el negocio, una historial de quejas, comentarios de clientes anteriores, y grandes problemas de publicidad. También es recomendado buscar precios y ofertas y hacer comparaciones en línea antes de ir a compras en Black Friday para que usted pueda entrar con un plan. Asegúrese de leer las revisiones de posibles compras antes de salir para que no se arrepienta de su compra. • Proteja su identidad. El robo de identidad puede ocurrir en cualquier momento. El

• Tenga cuidado con la publicidad engañosa. Usted va a ver anuncios para ofertas que parecen demasiado buenas para ser verdaderas. Lamentablemente, es posible que algunos de estos anuncios van a ser engañosos o fraudulentos. Asegúrese de leer las letras pequeñas, ya que los anuncios a menudo vienen con una multitud de restricciones. La campaña de AdTruth de BBB le puede ayudar a identificar y evitar esquemas comunes y destaca anuncios malos. Si usted ve publicidad engañosa mientras hacer compras, usted puede reportarlo en bbb.org/council/ad-truth/. • Lea las políticas de devolución e intercambio. Antes de realizar una compra, asegúrese de comprender las políticas de devolución e intercambio, y guarde sus recibos en un solo lugar en caso de necesitar devolver algo. Es posible que algunas tiendas no le permitan devolver artículos específicos de “venta final”, cobran cargas de repoblar, y sólo devolver créditos de tienda. Si está comprando regalos, obtenga recibos de regalo y guarde toda la información de garantía en caso de que ocurra un problema. • Tenga cuidado con phishing. Es posible que usted va a recibir correos electrónicos de negocios anunciando grandes ofertas. Pero tenga cuidado, podría ser phishing. Algunos estafadores crean falso sitios web que parecen como los de negocios para engañarlos a ingresar su información de tarjeta de crédito, así que busque el sitio web de una compañía de forma independiente en vez de hacer clic en un enlace. Tenga cuidado haciendo clic en enlaces de remitentes desconocidos y busque negocios que usted no conoce en bbb.org antes de hacer alguna compra. ¡Visite bbb.org para buscar un negocio, presentar una queja, escribir un comentario de cliente, presentar una estafa, leer consejos, y más! Puede ponerse en contacto con su BBB a través de info@bbbemail.org o (510) 8442000, o en goldengate.bbb.org.

TEEN CREATES NATION'S FIRST WEARABLE APP TO PREVENT FARM WORKER DEATHS FROM HEAT ILLNESS

SHA FTER , Calif. - Fighting to reduce the high numbers of heat illness and deaths among farm workers in her beloved Central Valley, a concerned California teen has created an app to connect farmers, contractors and farm workers through Apple watches that prov ides instant health data and critical heat aler ts. Now, she seeks funding to bring the  app  to the f ields v ia a "Star t Some Good " crowdsourced campaign. To help, donate now at  https:// star tsomegood.com/CalorApp  to bring the summer 2018 pilot to hundreds of farmer workers. Nearly two-thirds of A mericans are experiencing an increased number of extreme-heat days due to climate change.  Nowhere is the impact felt more directly than California's already sizzling agricultural f ields.  Faith Florez, a 17-year old senior in high school and the granddaughter of farm workers, created the app Calor to help protect farm workers from death and heat illness, by prov iding them w ith timely aler ts and data. "I want to prove that technolog y to protect farm workers in times of excessive heat can be applied as easily as the A mber A ler t notif ications we already receive, w ith life-sav ing data sent straight to their w rists as they toil to put food on our tables," said Florez. "My mission is to change the

statement "work or health" to 'work A ND health.'" To get the project star ted, Florez's original proposal for the farm work heat stress protection app was selected by graduate coding students at USC's Viterbi School of Engineering  in 2016. Calor— the f irst-ever farm worker heat notif ication web-based application— is the f inal product of nearly a year of work and intense meetings w ith farmers, contractors, farm workers and state regulators. California farmers and contractors have agreed to prov ide Apple Watches to farm workers at the beginning of the har vest job, as par t of the summer 2018 pilot. In the future, Florez believes farmers w ill benef it from anticipated reductions in workers compensation insurance rates due to the risk mitigation of fered by Calor. Initial funds raised w ill help fund the development costs and to boost the number of farm workers par ticipating in the program.  A ll donations are tax-deductible.  The ef for t is sponsored by the Latina Legacy Foundation.

salud" a 'trabajo Y salud'".

SHAFTER, California. - Luchando para reducir los elevados números de enfermedades y muertes por calor entre los trabajadores agrícolas en su amado Valle Central, una adolescente preocupada de California ha creado una aplicación para conectar a granjeros, contratistas y trabajadores agrícolas a través de relojes Apple, que proporcionan datos instantáneos sobre la salud y alertas críticas sobre el calor. Ahora, busca f inanciamiento para llevar la app a los campos a través de una campaña de crowdsourcing de "Start Some Good" (Empieza algo bueno).

Para darle inicio al proyecto, la propuesta original de Florez para la app de protección contra el estrés calórico en el trabajo agrícola fue seleccionada por estudiantes de grado de programación de la Escuela de Ingeniería Viterbi de la Universidad del Sur de California (USC) en 2016. Calor—la primera aplicación de la historia basada en Internet para notif icaciones sobre el calor a los trabajadores agrícolas —es el producto f inal de casi un año de trabajo e intensas reuniones con granjeros, contratistas, trabajadores agrícolas y reguladores estatales.

Para colaborar, done ahora en https:// startsomegood.com/CalorApp  para llevar el piloto para el verano 2018 a cientos de trabajadores agrícolas.

Granjeros y contratistas de California han acordado entregar relojes Apple a los trabajadores agrícolas al inicio de las tareas de cosecha, como parte del piloto en el verano de 2018. En el futuro, Florez cree que los granjeros se benef iciarán de las reducciones previstas en las tasas de los seguros para compensación de trabajadores, gracias a la mitigación del riesgo que ofrece Calor.

Casi dos tercios de los estadounidenses experimentan un creciente número de días de calor extremo debido al cambio climático. En ningún lugar se siente el impacto más directamente que en los ya sofocantes campos agrícolas de California.  Faith Florez, una alumna de último año de secundaria de 17 años y nieta de trabajadores agrícolas, creó la app  Calor  para ayudar a proteger a los trabajadores agrícolas de la muerte y las enfermedades por el calor, proporcionándoles alertas y datos en forma oportuna. "Quiero demostrar que la tecnología para proteger a los trabajadores agrícolas en épocas de calor excesivo puede aplicarse con tanta facilidad como las notif icaciones de las alertas Amber que ya recibimos, con datos para salvar vidas que se envían directo a sus muñecas mientras trabajan para poner alimentos en nuestra mesas", comentó Florez. "Mi misión es cambiar la frase "trabajo o

Los fondos iniciales recolectados ayudarán a f inanciar los costos de desarrollo y a aumentar la cantidad de trabajadores agrícolas participantes en el programa.

CYBER MONDAY: TIPS FOR STAYING SAFE AND SAVING MONEY

Monday: 1. Do your research. Before buying, look up the business at bbb.org and look over its BBB Business Profile to see its rating, complaint history, and customer reviews. Researching a company and reading reviews before making a purchase can save you from making the same mistake others did before you. Consider buying from trustworthy BBB Accredited Businesses. 2. Beware of “too good to be true” deals and deceptive ads. Don’t believe every Cyber Monday ad you see. You’ll probably see ads online or receive email offers advertising suspiciously low prices. Make sure the site is professional, and free of spelling and grammatical errors. Better safe than sorry; it’s better to pass up on a “great deal” than pay for a product and either never receive it or realize the advertisement or product details were misleading. Take your time and read the fine print before submitting your order.

Imagine accessing all of the deals and savings of Black Friday without having to leave your comfy couch and face crowds. If this sounds like a dream come true, you’re not alone! According to the National Retail Federation, 78 million Americans plan to shop online this Cyber Monday. Unfortunately, scammers and unethical businesses may use the popularity of this shopping holiday to take advantage of consumers. Although online shopping has many benefits, it’s

important to watch out for scams. According to the BBB Risk Index (bbb.org/riskreport), online purchase scams are the fourth riskiest scam to consumers. In 2016, more than 2,700 online purchase scams were reported to BBB Scam Tracker – and 74% of targets lost money! Additionally, consumers nationwide filed a whopping 14,500 complaints against online retailers with BBB in 2016. Common complaints include paying for items but never receiving them, deceptive “free trial” offers, and issues returning products and receiving refunds. Your BBB suggests following these eight tips to avoid an online shopping mishap this Cyber

LUNES CIBERNÉTICO: CONSEJOS PARA MANTENERSE SEGURO Y AHORRAR DINERO estafas. Según el Índice de Riesgo de BBB, las estafas de compras en línea son las cuarta más arriesgada para los consumidores. En 2016, se portaron más de 2.700 estafas de compra en línea al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB, y 74% de reportes involucraron una pérdida monetaria.

Imagine accesando todas las ofertas y ahorros del Viernes Negro – pero sin tener que dejar su sofá en sus pijamas cómodos y hacer frente a las multitudes. Si esto suena increíble, ¡no está solo! Según la Federación Nacional de Minoristas, 78 millones de estadounidenses planean comprar en línea este Lunes Cibernético. Desafortunadamente, los estafadores y negocios poco éticos pueden usar la popularidad del día para aprovechar a los consumidores. Aunque hacer compras en línea tienen muchos beneficios, es importante tener cuidado con las

Además, los consumidores presentaron 14.500 quejas contra minoristas en línea con BBB en 2016. Las quejas comunes incluyen pagar por artículos pero nunca recibirlos, ofertas engañosas, y problemas devolver productor y recibir reembolsos. Su BBB sugiere seguir estos ocho consejos para evitar un problema cuando hacer compras en línea este Lunes Cibernético: 1. Haga su investigación. Busque el negocio en bbb.org y lea su Perfil de Negocio de BBB para ver su calidad, historia de quejas, y comentarios de sus clientes. Investigando una empresa antes de hacer una compra y leyendo críticas puede ahorrarte de cometer el mismo error que otros hicieron antes. Considere comprar de un confiable Negocio Acreditado por BBB. 2. Tenga cuidado con ofertas que parecen demasiado buenas para ser verdad. No debe creer cada anuncio del Lunes Cibernético que veas. Usted probablemente va a ver anuncios en línea o recibir ofertas por correo electrónica anunciando precios sospechosamente bajos. Asegúrese de que el sitio es profesional, y libre de

3. Beware of phishing. Don’t open any links or attachments from unsolicited emails - even if the advertised Cyber Monday deals seem irresistible. It’s better to type the URL directly in to your search bar, or look up the company on bbb.org and follow the link in its BBB Business Profile. Also, be on the lookout for phishing emails and websites that are impersonating real businesses. Hover over links and examine logos carefully. Remember that impersonation is easy; anyone can take a company’s logo and products and set up a fake website using a legitimate domain. If you suspect you’re being phished, report it to BBB Scam Tracker to help warn others. 4. Be secure. Check the site’s security settings and privacy policy and understand them. Make sure the URL starts with “https://”, where the “s” stands for secure. Also, look for the small closed errores de ortografía y gramática. Es mejor pasar en una “gran oferta” de pagar por un producto y no recibirla o realizar el anuncio o los detalles del producto fueron engañosas. Tómese su tiempo y lea las letras pequeñas antes de ordenar. 3. Tenga cuidado con phishing. No debe abrir ningún enlace o adjunto de correos electrónicos no solicitados – incluso si las ofertas del Lunes Cibernético parecen irresistibles. Es mejor escribir la URL directamente en la barra de búsqueda, o buscar la compañía en bbb.org y seguir el enlace en su Perfil de Negocio de BBB. También tenga cuidado con sitios web de phishing que están imitando empresas reales. Pase el ratón sobre los enlaces del sitio y examina logotipos cuidadosamente. Recuerde que la suplantación es fácil; cualquier persona puede tomar el logotipo y los productos de una empresa y crear un sitio web falso usando un dominio que parece legítimo. Si usted tiene sospecho que está siendo phished, repórtelo al Rastreador de Estafas de BBB para advertir a otros. 4. Sea seguro. Compruebe la configuración de seguridad y la política de privacidad del sitio, y entiéndelas: asegúrese de que la URL comienza con “https://”, donde la “s” significa “seguro”. También busque el pequeño icono de candado cerrado. No dé ninguna información personal innecesaria, y sea seguro de que usted está dando su información de pago a través de un sitio web seguro. Si el sitio muestra un Sello de BBB, haga clic en él y asegúrese de que esta enlazado al Perfil de Negocio de BBB del negocio para confirmar su autenticidad. También proteja su computadora: asegúrese de que tiene cortafuegos, y software anti-virus y anti-spyware. Ejecute análisis de

lock icon in the address bar. Don’t give away any unnecessary personal information, and be certain that you’re giving your payment information through a secure website. If the site shows a BBB Seal, click on it and make sure it links to the correct BBB Business Profile to confirm its authenticity. Protect your computer as well: make sure you have firewall, anti-virus, and antispyware software. Run virus scans regularly and make sure your software is up-to-date. 5. Pay with a credit card. A credit card may offer more protection than other payment methods; you can dispute a charge if you don’t receive the item. Additionally, consider it a red flag if the site will only let you use less-traceable payment forms. 6. Document everything. Keep documentation of all confirmation pages, emails, and any other records. Print these out to be extra safe. 7. Read the return, cancellation, and refund policies very carefully. Make sure to look at the site’s contact page and FAQ to see what methods of contact are available should an issue arise. Consider it a red flag if they don’t have a toll free phone number and can only be contacted via email. 8. Carefully read the product details. Many people think they’re buying one thing but receive another because they didn’t read the fine print. Make sure you’re getting the size, color and other specifications that you want. Follow these tips to feel confident shopping online this Cyber Monday. Report and research online shopping scams to bbb.org/scamtracker to help warn others. You can reach your BBB at info@bbbemail.org or (510) 844-2000, or by visiting goldengate.bbb. org. virus con regularidad y asegúrese de que su software esta actualizado. 5. Pague con una tarjeta de crédito. Una tarjeta de crédito puede ofrecer más protección que otros métodos de pago; usted puede disputar un cargo si no se recibe el artículo. Además, considérelo una señal de alerta si el sitio sólo se le permitirá utilizar formas de pago menos rastreables. 6. Documenta todo. Mantenga la documentación de todas las páginas de confirmación, correos electrónicos, y cualquier otro archivo. Imprima estos para ser más seguro. 7. Lea las políticas de retorno, cancelación, y reembolso con mucho cuidado. Asegúrese de leer la página de contacto del sitio y preguntas frecuentes para ver que métodos de contacto están disponibles si se presenta un problema. Considérelo una señal de alerta si no tienen un número de teléfono gratuito y solo pueden ser contactados a través de correo electrónico. 8. Lea cuidadosamente los detalles del producto. Muchas personas piensan que están comprando una cosa, pero reciben otro porque no leen la letra pequeña de los detalles del producto. Asegúrese de que está ordenando el correcto tamaño, color, y otras propiedades. Siga estos consejos para sentirse seguro cuando usted hace compras en línea este Lunes Cibernético. Reporte estafas de compras en línea en bbb.org/scamtracker para ayudar a otros. Puede ponerse en contacto con su BBB a través de info@bbbemail.org o (510) 844-2000, o en goldengate.bbb.org.
