OPINION

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

TWO RETIREE INCOMES; SAME NEEDS

or bad for this socio-economic American community. His concern was that of PresidentElect Trump, and how he during the past election campaign had used language which encouraged the racist element to come out of the shadows.

As a commentator on issues which I believe are of interest to many EO's readers, I decided to convey to you my personal experience Thanksgiving Day at a festive family meeting in San Francisco.

His main concern was what would he do if his mother's health failed or her home required major repairs. As a former programmer, his employment was sporadic; not reliable.

During the meal, an 83 year old widowed neighbor told me that she lives on $1,000 per month (Social Security); her home, bought during the 1940's for $28,000 was paid for; has never been remodeled nor renovated. Her furnace is the original potbellied cast iron gas-fired model; the electrical circuitry is original. She is from Arkansas; married at age 17; never attended college; did a variety of service jobs while her husband served in the military.

“Those good ole white boys in Arkansas really like Trump; they think white supremacists will now guide this nation. But I have news for Trump...America now has millions of college educated individuals who have read the U.S. Constitution; who have fought to sustain this Democracy, … and there is no way in hell that he can become an effective President without living up to, and honoring, the American ideals as established in our Constitution. He better not cut back on Social Security nor on Medicare/MediCal. If Trump is really a 'real estate mogul', he needs to deal with creating an affordable home national program. I can ensure that my mom will never go hungry; but I cannot cope with this crazy real estate market in which some people get filthy rich while others end up

One of her sons conveyed to me that he has served in Viet Nam as a soldier; and later joined the Navy. One of his comments was that the post WWII GI Bill created millions of college graduates, such as he, who were now capable of being critical thinkers, and as such make their own assessments of what is good

impoverished. People need the basics, regardless of their social or racial status. If Trump messes up, ordinary people in Arkansas are angry enough to revolt.”

Here, in one generation, individuals went from being impoverished and uneducated to the college trained level who could look out for each other. This woman and her family do not need to be 'filthy rich', but they do need to continue to live in a stable socio-economic environment in which they can sustain their lifestyle and its requirements. Two weeks ago, a single friend, age 80, came to our home to get advice about her financial situation. She had just sold her home and was down-sizing to a more modest life style. I asked her about her assets. She replied, “I have $470,000 in the bank making no interest earnings; I have $370,000 from my mother's estate. Oh, I just remembered I have $90,000 in another bank; and $30,000 in a credit union.” I proceeded to ask, 'do you have a budget?' “Oh, no...I just spend what I need to.” I told her to do the following: for one week, every time you spend money or pay a bill using a check or credit card, ask for a receipt and place it in a brown paper bag. At the end of the week, analyze what you have done with

your money. She was astonished by her analysis of her 'brown bag receipts'- how many 'impulse purchases' were made for stuff she did not need. I told her that now that she was 80 years old, she couldn't do that anymore.

She is a Stanford University graduate; who worked for Palo Alto Hospital (before it merged with Stanford University Hospital); upon retirement she worked as an editorial assistant for a publishing house; bought and managed a small hotel which she sold. Later, She revealed that she had just quit her job at Stanford University Medical Center and had not received any retirement fund payments, ever! With our advice, she is now making her claims for any and all retirement funds due her. In brief, this single 80 year old educated woman, now knows that she has enough money to sustain herself during her 'sunset years'. Instead of planning to spend her money so that it runs out when she passes on, I pointed out to her that, “none of us know when we will die. A better way is to invest your wealth so it provides a stable income during your entire lifetime. And, have a will which bequeaths your wealth to a nonprofit organization or relative.” As it stands she has enough wealth in hand to purchase a

home and still have enough monthly income to sustain her life style. To the main point of these parables, what would upset the personal plans of these two women? It would be extraordinary health care expenses or home repairs. Based upon these retirees, this nation needs to sustain its Social Security Administration's purpose; create an affordable national health care system; and establish a national housing policy. Its elected officials need to ensure that all financial institutions are monitored to ensure honesty and integrity. It's important to continue to enable any individual who wants to become educated to achieve the personal development needed at each stage of one's life. Though these two individuals are from different sectors of the American community, they both need stable reliable sources of personal income, housing, health care, and an education which enables them to perform critical thinking and to make evidence-based choices. Both were working class consumers neglected by both major political parties which have other priorities. What this nation needs most is a stable society and reliable domestic economy. All elected officials need to include the needs of retirees for peace and socio-economic stability.

Un Fenómeno Alarmante Por José López Zamorano Para La Red Hispana Sólo el mes pasado, más de 46,000 inmigrantes indocumentados fueron detenidos entre los puertos de entrada en la frontera suroeste de los Estados Unidos, lo que representó un incremento en relación con los 39,500 de octubre y los 37,000 de agosto. Pero lo más alarmante es que esas cifras incluyen un nuevo aumento de niños no acompañados, además de los que se entregan a las autoridades en los puntos de cruce para solicitar asilo político. La mayoría de esos niños provienen del llamado “Triángulo del Norte”, que comprende a El Salvador, Nicaragua y Guatemala, que es una fuente creciente de niños migrantes hacia Estados Unidos. Actualmente más de 41,000 personas, muchas de ellas niños y adolescentes, están recluidas en los centros de detención migratoria del país.

Nadie está quedándose con los brazos cruzados. Estados Unidos ha renovado su compromiso de otorgar una legitima audiencia a quienes soliciten asilo a través de un mecanismo de revisión en los países de origen; Costa Rica llegó a un acuerdo con el Alto Comisionado de Naciones Unidas para Refugiados y los países centroamericanos buscan aliviar las condiciones económicas y de seguridad que impulsan la salida de sus nuevas generaciones a un futuro incierto.

La CIDH exhortó a todos los países de la región, sin excepción, a reforzar las instituciones responsables de la promoción, la protección y la defensa de los derechos de la niñez a nivel local, a establecer sistemas que permitan una medición de los avances realizados en materia de derechos de la niñez, y destinar los recursos humanos y financieros necesarios para garantizar el adecuado funcionamiento de los sistemas.

Es por ello que cobra una urgencia sin precedentes el llamado de la Comisión Interamericana de los Derechos Humanos (CIDH) a fortalecer los sistemas nacionales de protección integral de los derechos de los niños, niñas y adolescentes de la región, con motivo del aniversario de la adopción de la Convención sobre los Derechos del Niño por la Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas.

Una de las recomendaciones de la CIDH llama especialmente la atención: otorgar un “rol más protagónico” a la voz y a las opiniones de los propios niños, niñas y adolescentes, empoderándoles en el conocimiento de sus derechos, en la identificación de situaciones de riesgo y vulneradoras de sus derechos, así como en fortalecer su participación en la búsqueda de soluciones, y en el monitoreo de las políticas.

Es indudable que si bien los gobiernos del hemisferio han dado un renovado sentido de urgencia a atender las condiciones que ponen a los menores en una posición de vulnerabilidad, las cifras sugieren que, en el mejor de los casos, los esfuerzos o no han sido suficientes o los avances no están materializándose con la celeridad que reclama la precaria situación. Sea pues el aniversario de la Convención de los Derechos del Niño una oportunidad para reflexionar sobre las políticas que han funcionado, sobre lo que hace falta por hacer y sobre los mecanismos para sumar aún más las aportaciones de las organizaciones de la sociedad civil y de las personas en lo individual. Es un deber y una responsabilidad de todos para las generaciones que serán el futuro de nuestros países. Para más información visita www. laredhispana.org

CODING CLASSES FOR TEENS AND CHILDREN NOW OFFERED AT LIBRARIES Partnership with Hour of Code to Increase Learning Accessibility of Important Coding Skills for Santa Clara County Children

SANTA CLARA COUNTY, CALIF. – Computer coding, a system of signals representing letters or numbers which are then transmitted electronically to a computer to complete a task, is becoming increasingly important in today’s electronic world as well as the skills and knowledge needed to write and create these codes. In an effort to combine Silicon Valley’s growing need for skilled tech workers and the unique ability for local libraries to provide classes free of charge in a safe learning environment, County of Santa Clara Supervisor Mike Wasserman, Chair of the Santa Clara County Library District Board is spearheading the effort of offering robust, free of charge coding programs for youth throughout the Santa Clara County Library District (SCCLD) seven community libraries, starting December 3. “The earlier a girl or boy can learn to code, the more ingrained and helpful these skills will be,” said County of Santa Clara Supervisor Mike Wasserman, the champion behind leveraging County libraries availability to make coding classes free and accessible to Santa Clara County children. “We wouldn’t expect future doctors to take their first biology classes in college; why should future tech workers wait to learn these fundamental skills until much later in their studies? They shouldn’t!” Anticipating the current and future job market needs, parents, schools and libraries are joining a worldwide effort to increase the availability of computer science coursework and coding classes to millions of students. The Santa Clara County Library District is partnering with “The Hour of Code,” <https://code. org/learn>, a global movement that has introduced tens of millions of students in

over 180 countries to computer science and computer programming through a onehour introduction course. First introduced by Computer Science Education Week and Code.org (a non-profit company dedicated to expanding access to computer science), the movement has gained momentum and is now in its 3rd year. “Although we live in the heart of Silicon Valley, with high tech companies in every city, not all students living here are exposed to computers and computer programming in their own homes,” said Gail Mason, SCCLD Library Services Manager, Adult and Teen Services. “Our goal is to help teach students from all backgrounds learn the fundamentals of computers and inspire them to acquire new skills in an exciting and fun environment, which will ultimately empower them to succeed in a world that is becoming increasingly digital.” Mason highlighted the Library’s annual Teen Hack-a-thons and its ongoing ‘Girls Who Code’ events among the most popular with the County’s teen audience. 2015 had as many as 7 million job openings that required coding skills, with programming jobs overall growing “12% faster than the market average,” according to a report from Burning Glass Technologies, a job market analytics firm from Boston, MA. The Pew Research Center revealed in a recent social and demographic trends article that an overwhelming 85% of people think that to become more successful it is critical for today’s workers to have a “mixture of technical and ‘soft skills’,” such as a thorough understanding of how to use computers. During the week of December 5-11, 2016, all SCCLD libraries will be hosting at least one Hour of Code event. In addition, SCCLD libraries offer these ongoing Computer Science and Coding Classes:

CAN HEALTHY HABITS CONTRIBUTE TO FINANCIAL SECURIT Y?

StatePoint When it comes to feelings about finances, working Americans are practically split down the middle, according to a recent study. Fifty-five percent of employed Americans feel they are on the right track to achieving financial well-being, while the other 45 percent feel they are not headed in the right direction, according to the 2016 Lincoln Financial Group Measuring Optimism, Outlook and Direction (M.O.O.D.) of America study. So what are those individuals on the right track doing so well? The study found five key factors -- behaviors and influencers -- in their lives that correlate to positive feelings about money. “Right trackers” differ from their counterparts who are not on the right track because: • They are more likely to have created formal financial plans -- more than 70 percent of them, in fact. • They are forward-looking in general, with nearly 100 percent saying they are focused on the future. Also, 90 percent of those in the “right track” camp say they feel in control of their lives. • They exercise more. Those with positive feelings about money tend to be active. About 80 percent of this group exercises at least once a week, and typically more often. Compare that with those who are not on the right track -- just 60 percent of that segment works out on a consistent basis. Physical health can correlate to financial health.

• They’re more likely to feel good about themselves. Financial health and emotional health go hand-in-hand, too. Those on the right track are more likely than their counterparts to say they are optimistic because they feel good about themselves and their relationships with family and friends. They’re also positive about their careers and their relationships with coworkers. • They take advantage of workplace benefits. Indeed, the more benefits you enroll in through the workplace, the better you will feel financially, suggests the study. Beyond health insurance and retirement savings, “right-trackers” are enrolling in insurance plans to cover dental and vision care, as well as life insurance and disability insurance (which can help replace a portion of your paycheck while you recover from an injury or illness). They’re also taking advantage of other nonmedical benefits that can help boost financial security, such as accident insurance and critical illness insurance, which can help cover expenses that medical insurance does not, like high deductibles, or day-to-day expenses such as food or mortgage payments. The future is unknown, but certain insurance coverages offered at work can help safeguard you against a broad scope of unexpected expenses, and can help you feel and be more financially secure. This is something to think about during annual open enrollment for medical insurance and beyond. Feeling good about your finances is about the big picture, not just your bank account. From a healthy lifestyle to a positive attitude, taking a cue from those who are on the “right track” may help you get your footing on the path to financial well-being.

3 formas sencillas de ahorrar tiempo y dinero durante las fiestas StatePoint La temporada de fiestas es muy agitada. Entre comprar regalos, prepararse para las visitas y decorar la casa, en ocasiones puede haber la sensación de que el día no tiene suficientes horas, ni uno tiene suficiente dinero en el banco para hacerlo todo. Éstas son algunas formas excelentes de estresarse menos y ahorrar más tiempo y dinero durante la época más maravillosa, pero más ajetreada, del año:

BUSINESS

• Replantéese la decoración: Cambie las flores y coronas más costosas por fruta fresca para crear una sensación festiva sin quebrar la banca. Coloque limas y limones en un frutero transparente para crear una pieza de centro colorida. Añada alegría a las puertas colgando una granada de un listón. Utilice cualquier cítrico adicional para decorar las bebidas. Añada calidez a la disposición de la mesa rodeando las velas con peras y arándanos. • Sálte la fila dela caja: La tecnología está haciendo que la compra de regalos y de suministros para recibir visitas sea más rápida y conveniente. Por ejemplo, la nueva aplicación Scan & Go de Sam’s Club le permite saltarse la fila de la caja tradicional. Sólo tiene que escanear

los códigos UPC de los artículos que lleva en su carro para poder pagarlos desde su smartphone en cualquier lugar del club. Una vez que termine de hacer sus compras, sólo tiene que mostrarle el recibo digital a un asociado al salir de la tienda. En una época del año donde es fácil excederse en los gastos, la aplicación también es una herramienta útil para monitorear su presupuesto para las fiestas, ya que muestra la cuenta corriente mientras compra. Para descargar la aplicación o recibir más información, visite SamsClub.com. • Elija un tema para los regalos: Personalice los regalos para la familia y amigos cercanos pero cuando sea posible, elija un tema para el resto de su lista de regalos. Recorra sitios, circulares y estanterías para encontrar el mejor precio y, luego, compre en volumen. Ya sea que elija pijamas, juegos de regalo de chocolate o gorros y guantes, esta táctica también le ayudará a reducir múltiples salidas de compras y así poder aprovechar su presupuesto de regalos al máximo. Las tareas y gastos que se acumulan durante la temporada festiva pueden parecer interminables, pero hay algunas estrategias sencillas que usted puede emplear para hacer que sus festividades de fin de año sean menos estresantes y, quizás, incluso más significativas.

StatePoint Según un estudio reciente, sólo una cuarta parte de los niños y adolescentes hacen suficiente actividad física. Y la actividad física no es sólo necesaria para un cuerpo sano; puede contribuir a tener una mente sana. El informe “2016 Shape of the Nation” de la iniciativa Voices for Healthy Kids determinó que a pesar que la educación física (EF) y otros programas en las escuelas podrían abordar esta brecha, pocos estados tienen políticas que requieren que las escuelas ofrezcan programas de EF efectivos para todos los alumnos. Adicionalmente, el resultado de los conflictos de prioridades financieras y educativas ha sido que los programas de EF efectivos sean menos comunes. Otros estudios han encontrado que los alumnos activos se concentran y piensan mejor. Eso resulta en puntuaciones más altas en los exámenes, mejores calificaciones y un compromiso más profundo en el aprendizaje de todos los temas. Pero los beneficios van más allá de esos. Los expertos dicen que la EF abarca las necesidades integrales del niño. “Los programas efectivos de educación física tienen un impacto positivo en la salud física, mental y emocional de los niños”, dice el doctor Stephen Daniels, del Departamento de Pediatría de la Escuela de Medicina de la Universidad de Colorado. “Más allá de reducir el riesgo de la obesidad, la actividad física adecuada durante el día mejora el criterio, reduce el estrés y puede aumentar la autoestima”. Para volver a incluir la EF en las escuelas, los expertos de Voices for Healthy Kids, una iniciativa de la American Heart Association

y la Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, están animando a los padres a tomar en serio la EF con las siguientes sugerencias: • Pregúntele a su escuela cuánto tiempo pasan los niños en clase de educación física. ¿Es adecuado? Los alumnos de primaria deberían hacer por lo menos al menos treinta minutos diarios. Usted puede ser un padre promotor para que la EF y otras actividades sean prioridades en su escuela. Anime a otros papás a que también participen.

UN MENSAJE IMPORTANTE DE MEDICARE

• Hable con sus hijos para saber en qué actividades participan durante la EF. ¿Es una gama diversa de actividades? Las actividades deben incluir una gama amplia de actividades de desarrollo de habilidades y actividad física moderada a vigorosa. • Complemente la actividad física de la escuela con un estilo de vida activo. ¿Qué actividades pueden realizar en familia? Juege al deporte con los niños los fines de semana, planifique caminatas y paseos en bicicleta, y anime a los niños a dejar las pantallas y que sean activos al menos sesenta minutos cada día. • Aprenda más sobre los beneficios de la EF, considere unirse al Equipo de Acción de EF de Voices for Healthy Kids y siga la conversación en las redes sociales con el hashtag #ProtectPE. Se pueden encontrar más información y recursos en <voicesforhealthykids.org/PE>. En un momento en que más de una tercera parte de los niños y adolescentes tiene sobrepeso u obesidad, según los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades, los que abogan por la salud de los niños dicen que la EF debe ser una prioridad en las escuelas de todo el país.

StatePoint Aunque el invierno puede ser una estación muy hermosa, también puede ser una época traicionera en las carreteras. Las condiciones de conducción en el invierno exigen mayor atención y capacidad para adaptarse con rapidez.

Nov. 18 - JAN. 16

En 2015, 8,010 personas murieron a nivel nacional en choques de automóviles entre diciembre y marzo, lo cual resultó en un aumento mensual promedio de siete por ciento comparado al 2014, según el Consejo Nacional de Seguridad (NSC). Estos números son una advertencia para todas las personas que conducen en la carretera sobre lo peligroso que puede ser conducir en el invierno.

“El invierno se ve más idílico afuera de las ventanas de nuestro hogar que afuera de nuestro parabrisas”, dijo Deborah A.P. Hersman, presidente y directora general del Consejo Nacional de Seguridad. “Las buenas noticias son que muchos automóviles están equipados con tecnologías que salvan vidas. Es importante que los conductores entiendan cómo funcionan esas tecnologías a fin de conducir con seguridad en condiciones de invierno”. En un esfuerzo por evitar choques en carretera este invierno, MyCarDoesWhat (Mi coche hace qué), una iniciativa del NSC y de la Universidad de Iowa, está ofreciendo consejos importantes para conducir en condiciones de invierno. • Baje la velocidad. Con frecuencia, los conductores subestiman el tiempo qué toma frenar y lo difícil que puede ser controlar el auto en carreteras resbaladizas. • No use el control de crucero en superficies resbaladizas como son el hielo y la nieve. Esto disminuirá su control y reducirá su tiempo de reacción en caso de un patinazo.

MyCarDoesWhat también les recuerda a los conductores las tecnologías de seguridad que pueden ayudar a los vehículos a adaptarse en condiciones resbaladizas y cambiantes. • Los sistemas de freno antibloqueo (ABS) ayudan a los conductores a mantener el control evitando que las ruedas se bloqueen. El ABS funciona distinto de los frenos tradicionales, aplicando y liberando una presión de frenado precisa a cada rueda según sea necesario. Por ello, no bombee los frenos si tiene ABS. Sólo manténgalos oprimidos firmemente y mire y conduzca en la dirección en la que desea ir. Los frenos pueden zumbar y vibrar cuando el ABS se ha activado. • El control de tracción le ayuda a acelerar sin patinar en superficies resbaladizas como la nieve y el hielo. • El control electrónico de la estabilidad detecta cuando usted puede estar perdiendo el control al dar vuelta en una esquina o curva y puede estabilizar el auto si empieza a salirse del camino. • Los faros adaptables se ajustan a las condiciones cambiantes del camino, como serían las curvas, para ofrecer una iluminación óptima a lo largo del camino durante las largas noches de invierno y períodos de baja visibilidad durante el día. • La función de advertencia de la temperatura lo pone al corriente sobre las condiciones que hay más adelante en el camino, como sería el hielo negro. “Cuando hay nieve y hielo en el camino, los frenos antibloqueo pueden mejorar la estabilidad de su frenado, de modo que pueda conducir mejor”, dijo Dan McGehee, director del Simulador Nacional Avanzado de Conductores de la Universidad de Iowa. “Recuerde mantener oprimidos los frenos incluso cuando pulsan y vibran”.

LA COMUNIDAD DEL FÚTBOL SE UNE BAJO EL ESCUDO DEL EQUIPO DE CHAPECOENSE

Arturo Hilario El Observador Era temprano en el martes 29 de noviembre, 2016 que empezó el trend en twitter de las palabras “brazil” y “chapecoense”. Para los que están aclimatados con el fútbol, era talvez noticia nueva y excitante sobre el equipo brasileño que contra todo pronóstico había asegurado su posición en los finales de la Copa Sudamericana 2016. Conocidos como el "Leincaster brasileño", el equipo cuyo ascenso a la final contra el Atlético Nacional de Colombia fue inesperado, fue un testamento para el cuerpo técnico, los jugadores y su ascenso notable en la historia del fútbol. Sin embargo, la trend de Twitter se debió a informes no confirmados en el momento que el avión chárter que el equipo había tomado a Colombia no respondía, o había desaparecido. Poco tiempo después, la noticia se levantó, todo antes del amanecer en el oeste de los Estados Unidos. Y la noticia no era buena.

Ahora sabemos que el avión modelo británico se había quedado sin combustible, y minutos antes de su caída libre en las colinas cercanas a Medellin, Colombia, el piloto circuló preguntando frenéticamente por la autorización de la pista. De los 77 personas abordo el avión, sólo 6 sobrevivirían. 5 días antes el equipo estaba en su momento más alto, asegurándose un lugar en los finales de la Copa Sudamericana. Un equipo que hace 4 años era casi imposible imaginar que estarían en el juego más importante del fútbol sudamericano, y de la historia del equipo. Esta semana los aficionados y apoyantes se reunieron. No sólo en el estadio donde jugarían contra el Atlético Nacional en Medellín el miércoles, o en el estadio de Chapecoense en Chapeco, Brazil. Por todo el mundo, en ciudades y pueblos donde el fútbol es también sagrado como en sudamérica, habían recuerdos, momentos de silencio, y llanto.

DECEMBER 2 - 8 2016 Equipo tras equipo expresaba su propio modo de luto, expresando la angustia de perder este grupo de talentosos jugadores que trabajaban duro, ademas de los periodistas que habían estado cubriendo sus éxitos, y el personal del avión. Es triste ver cualquier pérdida de vidas en accidentes y tragedias, pero ésta fue levantada por el hecho de que este equipo había logrado tanto en tan poco tiempo, que estaban al borde de crear la historia, por las razones correctas, no como el equipo que acabó en un accidente de avión. Las familias, los amigos y los que conocían a los miembros del equipo Chapecoense y los periodistas y empleados de la aerolínea siempre tendrán una conexión doloroso con este momento que debía ser uno de celebración y competición. Además de los cercanos a los que comunidad del fútbol a todo alrededor recordará los momentos eternos que existieron en la gloria que viene en ganar un juego decisivo, en los momentos que Chapecoense desafió las probabilidades y se convirtió en una de las historias de fútbol más cautivadoras y sorprendentes en la historia reciente. Pero tal vez el equipo verá su campeonato. A partir del jueves la Confederación Sudamericana de Fútbol (CONMEBOL) estaba examinando la opción de otorgar el campeonato al equipo caído, por la solicitud del competidor de finales Atlético Nacional. Si esto fuera a suceder, sería realmente un momento sin precedentes en la historia del deporte. Pero vale la pena hablar de este momento, vale la pena recordarlo. Sólo podemos esperar y ver qué legado deja esta situación, y esperar que las regulaciones de vuelo sean más estrictas para evitar mas tragedias. Y como un signo de apoyo que ha aparecido en los medios de comunicación social dice, #FuerzaChapeco.

First Post-Election 'Fight for $15' Rally Suzanne Potter California News Service

LOS ANGELES - The election that gave Republicans control of the White House and both houses of Congress isn't stopping the grassroots "Fight for $15" movement, which sponsored what it calls a "National Day of Disruption" on Tuesday, November 29. The group had rallies and workers who participated in scattered strikes at McDonald's restaurants across 340 cities. Airport workers also participated at rallies at Los Angeles International and San Francisco International Airports. Ana Espindola, a wheelchair attendant at LAX, said that after this election, the fight for a living wage is more important than ever. "It's a huge setback - that's why I think it's so important that we still keep pushing, Espindola said. "We still have to fight - we can't just say, 'Well, you know, he's elected; we have to give up. There's nothing we can do.' I'm not the kind of person to just sit back and cross my hands and be like, 'Well, you know, we're defeated. That's it.'"

President-elect Donald Trump has taken multiple positions on the minimum wage. And the House of Representatives hasn't allowed a hearing or a vote on the idea of increasing the national minimum wage from $7.25 an hour since they defeated a bill in 2010 and filibustered another in 2014. California's minimum wage is currently $10 an hour. In the spring of 2016, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill that will raise it to $10.50 as of January 1, 2017 and begins a gradual increase to $15 an hour by 2022. Rico Johnson, an employee at Taco Bell, said he appreciates the momentum of the groups fighting for higher minimum wages. "We're organizing to get our voices out there," Johnson said. "We've got to ensure that everything that we've done thus far does not stop - that it cannot stop. There's too many families out here who are struggling." Tuesday marks the fourth anniversary of Fight for $15's first victory. And on Nov. 8, voters in four states - Arizona, Colorado, Maine and Washington - approved increasing their minimum wages.

42 ORGANIZATIONS FORM COALITION AGAINST HATE, GROUPS URGE TRUMP TO EJECT EXTREMISTS FROM INNER CIRCLE judgeship due to testimony from his former colleague about his persistent racist rhetoric. According to that testimony, Sessions used the N-word and joked about the Ku Klux Klan, saying he thought they were "okay, until he learned that they smoked marijuana." He has acknowledged that he concurred that a white civil rights lawyer was a “disgrace to his race” and reportedly called a Black attorney “boy” and told him to “be careful what you say to white folks.” We urge the Senate to block his confirmation. In 2006, Sen. Sessions gave a speech on the Senate floor stating “almost no one” from the Dominican Republic coming to the U.S. had skills that would benefit the country.

Coalition Calls for Peaceful but Forceful Opposition to Normalization of Racism, Sexism, Xenophobia, Homophobia, AntiSemitism and Islamophobia

On Tuesday November 29th, the Coalition Against Hate released the discriminatory records of individuals who have been raised as potential appointees or senior staff in a Trump administration with deep ties to racism, sexism, xenophobia, homophobia, anti-Semitism and Islamophobia. The Coalition urges Donald Trump to eject known extremists from his inner circle, such Senator Jeff Sessions, Representative Mike Pompeo, retired Army Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, Steve Bannon, Laura Ingraham and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach. The coalition, comprised of more than 40 diverse organizations representing millions of Americans, also urge Senators from both sides of the aisle work together to ensure that hate and division are not allowed in mainstream American politics, and block confirmations of Sen. Jeff Sessions and Rep. Mike Pompeo. The coalition will be looking for balanced coverage from the media on Trump’s inner circle that includes their bias against Americans of different races, ethnicity, faiths and sexual orientation. “This is a bipartisan call to action. History will remember who stood against hate and bigotry, and who looked the other way,” stated National Hispanic Media Coalition’s president & CEO and Coalition Against Hate member, Alex Nogales. “We must fight to protect the safety of all Americans. We call on everyone from the grassroots to the U.S. Senate to peacefully but forcefully oppose this dangerous return to mainstream racism. We call on the media, in particular, to expose the fake news phenomenon and avoid normalizing racism, sexism,

xenophobia, homophobia, anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.” “Biased individuals will result in biased policy. It is that simple,” said Corey Saylor, director of the Department to Monitor and Combat Islamophobia at the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). “No realistic vision of a united America includes Presidential appointees who favor racism, sexism, xenophobia, homophobia, antiSemitism and Islamophobia.” “At a time when our country is in need of healing, the President-elect’s appointees so far indicate that he intends to turn the divisive and hateful rhetoric of his campaign into policy,” said Marielena Hincapié, executive director of the National Immigration Law Center. “We will not stand for a government that seeks to disenfranchise aspiring Americans, women, the LGBTQ community, and communities of color.” “Hate is anti-American,” said Heidi Beirich, intelligence project director at the Southern Poverty Law Center. “With his appointments, the Trump campaign has made manifest the terrible ideas that he campaigned on--—nativism, xenophobia, anti-Muslim hatred and others. If our President Elect doesn’t change course, then the hate he has unleashed in the last year will continue to flourish and at the highest levels of American politics. We call on all elected officials to pushback against hate in the mainstream and to forcefully oppose any Trump appointees who represent these antiAmerican values." Read their records below. Senator Jeff Sessions Donald Trump has selected Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions to be the next U.S. Attorney General. In 1986, the U.S. Senate blocked Sessions’ appointment to a federal

Representative Mike Pompeo Trump has tapped Kansas Representative Mike Pompeo as director of the Central Intelligence Agency. Pompeo has an inconsistent record with Islamophobic remarks and must be scrutinized closely. He broadly accused American Muslim leaders of “silence” in response to terror attacks hundreds of them have actually condemned; this so-called silence, he said, makes “Islamic leaders across America potentially complicit in these acts.” Yet he urged people in one speech last year to differentiate terrorists from regular Muslims, saying “there are many Muslims of good will.” He has described the Guantanamo Bay prison as a “perfect facility” for interrogating terrorists, and he has called CIA torture “within the law.” We urge the Senate to reject Mike Pompeo. Retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn Trump has chosen retired lieutenant general Michael Flynn to serve as his national security advisor. On Twitter, Flynn has spread anti-Semitism and Islamophobia by, for instance, retweeting that “fear of Islam is rational.” He has also promoted the work of

an author who writes that “diversity is white genocide” and stated that Islam is a “political ideology,” not a religion, and is “like cancer.” The national security advisor does not require Senate confirmation, but we call on Donald Trump to rethink his decision. Steve Bannon Other Trump insiders with deep ties to racist movements must also go. Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon, was the chief executive of a website he called “the platform for the alt-right,” a white supremacist movement, and he led an anti-Muslim smear campaign against the founder of Chobani yogurt. He has received praise from former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke and Chairman of the American Nazi Party, Rocky J. Suhayda. Laura Ingraham Trump’s short-list for press secretary reportedly includes Laura Ingraham, who has a long history of hate profiteering. Ingraham infamously stated that Mexican immigrants “have come here to rape and murder our people.” She has compared same-sex marriage to polygamy and incest, suggested that people should wear diapers instead of sharing restrooms with transgender people, and that the U.S. should only accept Christian refugees. Kansas Secretary General Kris Kobach Kris Kobach, Trump’s immigration advisor, has made waves for his recent plans to build a Muslim registry. Kobach’s history in extremism extends well beyond Islamophobic sentiment. He has worked for a racist hate group whose stated purpose is to reduce the number of people of color in the U.S., was behind Arizona’s racial profiling bill, SB 1070, has likened LGBT people to pedophiles, and is a birther.

November is Sikh American Awareness and Appreciation Month Family Fun Day Community Mixer will be held Dec. 3 in Santa Clara Santa Clara – California is the most racially and ethnically diverse state in the nation and November marks Sikh American Awareness and Appreciation Month, a time to recognize and acknowledge the contributions made by Californians of Sikh heritage. A family fun day community mixer with food, crafts, games, short films and free health checkups will be held in Santa Clara this Saturday. “I am proud to support Sikh American Awareness and Appreciation Month because Sikhs are making important contributions in a number of ways all across California,” said State Senator Bob Wieckowski, who will speak at the community mixer. “Our community is enriched by the vibrancy of the diverse cultures that exist in our region and Sikh Americans are an important part of this diversity. By improving understanding and building awareness, we can foster mutual respect and celebrate our common goals.” WHO: State Senator Bob Wieckowski, Santa Clara City Leaders, Sikh Coalition, and others

WHAT: Sikh American Awareness and Appreciation Month Family Fun Day WHERE: Don Callejon School, 4176 Lick Mill Drive, Santa Clara, CA WHEN: 1:30 p.m., Saturday, December 3, 2016 California is home to just under half of the total Sikh population in America. Sikhs first entered California in 1899 through the Angel Island Immigration Station in San Francisco. The first Gurdwara in the United States, the Sikh Temple Stockton, was founded in 1912. Today, there are more than 100 Gurdwaras in the United States and Sikhism is the fifth-largest religion in the world. Sikh Americans have served as mayors and city council members, and Dalip Singh Saund, a University of California, Berkeley graduate, became the first Sikh to serve in the United States Congress, serving from 1957-1963. Senator Wieckowski represents the 10th District, which includes southern Alameda County and northeast Santa Clara County.

Pelosi on Nomination of Steven Mnuchin for Treasury Secretary Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement this week after it was reported that Steven Mnuchin will be nominated to serve as the next Secretary of the Treasury: “President-elect Donald Trump is giving Republicans and their special interest friends an early Christmas gift by tapping a former Wall Street executive to lead the U.S. Treasury Department. The Treasury Secretary is responsible for assessing risk in our f inancial system and protecting consumers against some of the worst excesses of the largest Wall Street Banks as chair of the interagency body established by the Dodd-Frank Act. By selecting a Wall Street banker who prof ited from the f inancial crisis to serve as America’s chief tax regulator and main overseer of our f inancial system, President-elect

Trump is handing over the keys to the same players who drove our economy into a ditch. “The American people, especially families hit hard by the housing crisis, deserve better than a big banker who led a f inancial institution pushing aggressive foreclosure schemes, particularly against seniors. Hardworking American families deserve a Treasury Secretary who will place their interests above those of Wall Street. “House Democrats will f ight relentlessly against the GOP’s efforts to drag our nation back to the tired, trickle-down economics that created the worst f inancial catastrophe since the Great Depression. We must have an economy that works for all Americans, not just the privileged few.”

What are some ways I can get my college to be more green?

Middlebury College students who complete a free class on bicycle repair are rewarded with a free discarded bike. Credit: Robert Keren.

Roddy Scheer & Doug Moss EarthTalk In recent years, colleges and universities have recognized the capacity for their independent communities to lead the nation as examples of sustainable and carbon-neutral institutions. Colleges in the U.S. and around the world have introduced conservation measures to reduce waste, installed solar panels to reduce reliance on fossil fuels, and promoted shared vehicles to reduce carbon emissions, among other initiatives. Many colleges have followed the lead of Stanford University’s “Green Campus” program by replacing disposable plastic utensils with organic alternatives. Cutlery made from potato starch and sugarcane allows students to simply put all waste in compost bins, including the utensils themselves. This compost is reintroduced in turn as fertilizer for use on university gardens. Reusable mug programs accomplish similar goals. At Portland Community College in Oregon, bringing your own mug gets you a fivecent discount per drink, while other colleges with meal plans offer similar incentive programs. And efforts to reduce waste aren’t limited to the dining hall. The University of Illinois UrbanaChampaign and Purdue University have partnered with Kimberly-Clark Professional’s RightCycle program to recycle non-hazardous lab waste. Since joining the program in 2013, the colleges have redirected six tons of plastic waste from landfills for use as shelving, flowerpots and furniture.

buildings—are ideal locations for photovoltaic panels, especially as peak electrical production correlates with peak demand during daytime hours. And photovoltaic installations are not limited to sunny states; Colby College completed a 1.9 megawatt project in 2015 that is currently the largest system in Maine. Other forms of renewable energy have also seen tremendous success on college campuses. A University of New Hampshire project provides over 80 percent of its energy using landfill gas. And Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana has replaced its outdated coal boilers with 3,750 geothermal wells that utilize the Earth’s interior temperature to regulate heat in campus buildings. Colleges have also taken steps to green up transportation. Vermont’s Middlebury College introduced its Yellow Bikes Cooperative in 2001 to offer public bicycles to students for just $6 per year. And students there who complete a free class on bicycle repair are rewarded with a free discarded bike. Many colleges also now partner with Zipcar to offer student rates, reducing the need for personal vehicles on campus. And dozens of colleges nationwide have replaced campus car and bus fleets with electric vehicles. These are just a few examples of how higher education is walking the talk on the environment. If your school isn’t already moving in the same direction, there’s no time like the present to team up with students, faculty and administrators to initiate earth-friendly policies and encourage greener behaviors.

Meanwhile, 48 different colleges—from Harvard to UC Santa Cruz—have signed on with the Post-Landfill Action Network (PLAN), which helps universities reduce waste through plasticfree initiatives, waste audits and move-in/moveout collections and subsequent sales.

Raiders Owner Mark Davis will wear purple shoes to help bring attention to Domestic Violence Awareness and the great work being done by Raiders Alum and Pro Football Hall of Famer Fred Biletnikoff through the Biletnikoff Foundation.

Oakland Raiders The Oakland Raiders are joining with players across the NFL to wear custom cleats reflecting their commitment to charitable causes during this Sunday's contest versus the Buffalo Bills at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum. The NFL announced this week that NFL players will have the chance to share the causes that are important to them during all Week 13 games, as part of the NFL’s My Cause, My Cleats campaign. The initiative is a culmination of 18 months of collaborative

work between the NFL and players across the league, and includes an online storytelling platform, in partnership with The Players’ Tribune. The Raiders are taking it one step further and involving the entire organization. In support of the My Cause, My Cleats program, Owner Mark Davis will join with more than 20 players to support the charitable cause that is important to them by wearing personalized cleats during the game on Sunday against the Bills.

Defensive Khalil Mack will use his cleats to promote awareness for Lupus while quarterback Derek Carr's cleats will bring attention to Neonatal Care.

DECEMBER 2 - 8 2016 In addition, the Raiderettes will show support for a member who is battling Diabetes by wearing gray sneakers for pregame warmups. For the halftime show, parachute jumpers will wear purple sneakers, and if they land on their on-field target, a donation will be made to the Biletnikoff Foundation and the National Domestic Violence Hotline. According to the NFL, more than 500 players across the league are planning to showcase their causes on-field, and many have worked directly with Nike, Under Armour and Adidas to design their cleats, which will arrive in locker rooms this week, and will be worn on-field for all Week 13 games. The league also announced that this week players started sharing images of their cleats and the stories behind them on social media, using the hashtag #mycausemycleats. In addition, the NFL announced this week that players will have the opportunity to raise funds for the cause of their choosing by auctioning their cleats off at NFL Auction; 100% of funds raised will be donated to charities selected by players—all designated charities must have 501c3 status.

DECEMBER 2 - 8, 2016

Officially, CES® 2017 runs from January 5 through January 8, 2017. That’s Thursday through Sunday, so Las Vegas weekend rates apply. To maximize your CES investment (and to help you financially justify a weekend in Vegas), here are five reasons CES 2017 will be awesome! 1 – People. CES is the largest trade show in North America. Attendance over the past few years has hit ~177,000, and the show is growing in popularity. As Yogi Berra once said, “Nobody goes there anymore; it’s too crowded.” But it’s not the number of people who attend that makes the show awesome, it’s the quality. No matter the industry, if it is touched by consumer technology, you will find a core group of industry leaders doing something awesome at CES. I have not found a better inter-industry networking environment anywhere. In truth, the show is so big, you may need some help making it smaller and maximizing your time. There are many companies, including ours, that offer this service. 2 – Trends. Of the many valuable things about CES, one of the most valuable is what you feel when you walk the show. If you give yourself a chance to experience the CES f loor, you won’t need charts or graphs to understand how the major manufacturers see the future. You won’t need industry stats or sales figures to compare their investment strategies. You won’t need deep technical analysis of their various offerings. The size and shape of each exhibit and its location, popularity and attendee engagement will provide a personal, visceral reference that will inform your understanding of the biggest players, what’s coming to market and when. You just need to be there. 3 – Seeing into the Future. “I don’t need to go to CES; there’s nothing new this year.” I beg to differ. There are all kinds of new things at CES every year. First and foremost, attending CES (and walking the f loor) will help you see about 36 months

5 REASONS CES 2017 WILL BE AWESOME

TECHNOLOGY

into the future. Short term, you’ll see what’s coming to market in the next holiday cycle. You’ll get an up close, personal view and an intuitive understanding of upcoming advertising budgets and brand investments. You’ll also get a pretty good idea of how the industry thinks about consumer adoption of the next iteration of existing devices, as well as the industry’s plans for new devices. Longer term, you will see prototypes of devices based on chip sets that are just being shipped. This knowledge will help you understand the marketplace and potential consumer empowerment from 18 to 24 months out. You will also see concept devices based on prototype chip sets that will help you identify and plan for what’s coming 36 months out. Importantly, you’ll see all of this in one place. 4 – Understanding the Past. What failed? Why? What was the big story last year? Is it an even bigger story this year? What technology was set to conquer the world two years ago and came up short? If you attend CES each year, you not only start to emotionalize important trends, you get to intellectualize important failures. Over time, you learn to filter the hype and cut to the heart of each offering. Will this innovation change consumer behavior? Will people find new money to purchase it with? Is this a parlor trick or a paradigm shift? These are all questions you can efficiently answer for yourself at CES. 5 – Cool Stuff. CES is purpose-built to delight your inner geek. The wow factor at CES cannot be overstated. It’s big, loud and full of cool stuff. If you think you’ve seen it all, CES 2017 will surprise you. Each year, offerings fall into three general categories: (1) Perfect examples of the aphorism, “Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.” (2) “This is important.” And (3) “Holy ____! That’s cool.” The beautiful thing about CES is that your list for each of these categories will be different from mine – which is reason enough to attend.

According to the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™, CES 2017 will cover more than 2.47 million net square feet and feature over 3,800 exhibitors.
