Native American Center Opens in San Jose

Children explore the new Family Resource Center in downtown San Jose.

Osvaldo Castillo El Observador

Native American communities can be found throughout the country. In San Jose, the community has worked hard to get a new facility that will allow them to succeed in Silicon Valley. On Wednesday, June 13, FIRST 5 Santa Clara County and the Indian Health Center hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for a new Family Resource Center in downtown San Jose. The new resource center is designed to provide young children with a place to learn, play, and interact with their parents as they prepare to enter Kindergarten. FIRST 5 has funded Family Resource Centers across the County for a number of years. They were approached by the Indian Health Center to transform its downtown location into a Family Resource Center that would serve downtown residents who have children or are expectant parents.

“The Indian Health Center has had the lease on the building since 2009,” Makdessian said. “However, renovations did not begin until the summer of 2010. Renovations were completed late last year and the center started operations in October 2011.” The center is open to any child and family who seek information, or programs regarding children’s health, or programs that prepare children for school. It is funded through a grant from FIRST 5. “Children learn basic literacy and numeracy skills as well as participate in physically active games and art projects that help prepare them for school,” said Avo Makdessian, Associate Director at First 5 of Santa Clara County. The center will also provide culturally competent programs specifically for American Indian/Alaska Native families. FIRST 5 paid for the $50,000 renovation of the

center and the purchase and installation of age-appropriate furniture and learning materials for young children. “In addition, FIRST 5 funds one of Indian Health Center’s program coordinators to operate the center. The lease for the center is under Indian Health Center’s purview,” Makdessian said. The center is operated by the Indian Health Center through a grant from FIRST 5 Santa Clara County funds. All programs and services offered at the center are open to all families at no cost. The Indian Health Center is a non-profit agency established in 1977 to provide comprehensive health care and wellness services, primarily to the American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/ AN) community of Santa Clara County. The new center is one of 17 Family Resource Centers in Santa Clara County funded by FIRST 5’s Learning Together Initiative.

SJCC & Charter School Graduation 2012

The San Jose Conservation Corps & Charter School graduated 217 individuals who had successfully completed all the requirements which resulted in receiving a diploma. This graduation ceremony was conducted at their Berger Drive Auditorium on Friday, June 15, 2012 at 1:00 PM. Each graduate was allowed to invite four family members. The outcome was that an estimated 1,200 persons attended this ‘standing room only’ ceremonial rite of passage. Robert J. Hennessy, Founder, Executive Director & Superintendent, deserves the community’s continued support and gratitude since education is essential to the development of individuals, their vocations and careers, and California’s economy. Congress Member Zoe Lofgren (D, CA District 16) was the first speaker to address this gathering. She focused her comments on congratulating all for their accomplishments; to continue their good works now that they are on the path towards a good job, able to support themselves and their families, and wished them much success. Gina Ortiz presented the Principal’s Address. Again this graduating class was encouraged to ‘learn from life’s experiences’ and take advantage of the knowledge and skills acquired through this training program. Graduate Andrew Lopez, a Berger Campus student, presented the first of two ‘Graduate Addresses’. Lopez said, “SJCC taught me a lot and now I know enough to take care of business which I shall do from now on.” Lopez thanked the teachers and staff…”You were all right on and you are great.” Lopez was very proud of ‘no longer being a student-atrisk.’ He was elated to have a job as a fork lift driver to go to. “This job allows me to take care of my family.

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR

“From now on, I am going to take care of business first.” The second ‘Graduate Address” was presented by Jayro Torres, a student of SJCC’s Senter Campus, who proudly told all that “It has not been easy. I have now been clean of drugs for the past two years. I am now the first in my family to earn a diploma. I can now take care of myself, my daughter and family with a job I shall do very well. I have a future now. The personal journey to come will now be much easier because of the new perspectives, skills and knowledge I have acquired by being the best student I knew how to become here. ” One definitely got the feeling that many of these graduates had had life transforming experiences at SJCC & Charter School. Many in this graduating class were Hispanic. Diplomas were passed out to loud ‘gritos’ (shouts) and applause of friends and family. One could not ignore those healthy kids whose faces beamed when “daddy got his diploma”. This graduation ceremony was definitely a ‘rite of passage’…a transition to a new and better life for these individuals who are now better equipped to become ‘good citizens’ who will live by the rules, pay their taxes, be involved and support their family and community. This was a joyous family event. SJCC & Charter School has definitely taken care of the business of teaching and training these youths. Remember this graduation event when you vote on Tuesday, November 5,

2012 for that proposed tax increase. The bulk of those tax revenues will fund education. This SJCC & Charter School training program deserves the supportive monies it requires because it trains skilled labor that local industry employs. Community Colleges, Cal State University, and University of California need to do something about training those skilled professionals which local industry needs. These training organizations need to consult with corporations and unions to learn about setting up degree programs for skilled vocations such as electricians. Electricians today need to know math up to calculus and with a few more courses would qualify for a college degree. With the cutback on H-1-B Visas for foreign skilled labor, it would be worthwhile for businesses to communicate the number and kind of skilled professionals needed. It would help local community colleges, CSU and UC public universities to set up programs for certain apprenticeships and internships. The business would be able to experience the apprentice or intern before entering into an employment agreement. Would this not help the educational institutions produce the skilled science and technical labor needed to diminish the dependency on foreign trained skilled labor? Should you need training go to: www.sjccharterschool.org and/or: www.ctcsj.org To contact a recruiter: (408) 639-9486 or (408) 213-0916. For CET’s graduation, visit www.el-observador.com

Un futuro sin SIDA

Luisa Fernanda Montero La Red Hispana

A pesar de los grandes esfuerzos que se realizan en Estados Unidos y alrededor del mundo para evitar la proliferación del virus del SIDA, miles de personas siguen siendo víctimas de esta enfermedad. Desde que irrumpió en nuestro mundo a principios de los ochenta, el SIDA ha cobrado la vida de millones de personas y aun las posibilidades de erradicarlo del planeta parecen estar demasiado lejanas. ¿Qué está pasando con el SIDA? De eso se ocupará en los próximos días un grupo de expertos internacionales que se reunirá este julio en Washington D.C. en el marco de La XIX Conferencia Internacional sobre SIDA – AIDS 2012. Y es que en lo que toca a la comunidad hispana de este país las noticias no son halagadoras. El VIH afecta de manera desproporcionada a los latinos. De acuerdo con las últimas cifras de los Centros de Control de Enfermedades – CDC –del 2007 al 2010, los latinos representaron el 22 por ciento

de los 191,698 diagnósticos de infección reportados en Estados Unidos y sus territorios.

más se discutirá en La XIX Conferencia Internacional sobre SIDA – AIDS 2012 en Washington.

Para el 2009 más de un millón cien mil hispanos – jóvenes y adultos – vivían con la infección y solo en el 2010, 116 mil hispanos se infectaron.

Aunque a algunos les parezca increíble, la triste verdad es que aunque para la mayoría la realidad del SIDA es tangible, muchas personas realmente ignoran que pueden enfermar y lo que es peor ignoran también como protegerse.

Lo peor es que la cosa es progresiva, porque en el 2009 los latinos representaron el 20 por ciento del total de infecciones nuevas –aun cuando representaban alrededor del 16 porciento de la población total de Estados Unidos - y para el 2010, como anotamos, el porcentaje alcanzó el 22 por ciento. Y es que en algún momento de la vida, 1 de cada 36 hombres latinos serán diagnosticados con VIH. La situación de las mujeres tampoco es envidiable, una de cada 106 correrá la misma suerte y no creo equivocarme cuando afirmo que la situación en el Caribe y en los países del sur del continente no es mucho mejor. ¿Qué debemos hacer como comunidad para enfrentarlo?, ¿cuáles son los retos a los que nos enfrenta el SIDA como sociedad y específicamente como hispanos?, de eso y mucho

OCURRIELCIAS

Es por eso, por dar solo un ejemplo, que el contagio entre mujeres que mantienen una pareja sexual estable es una constante; ellas no sospechan que sus maridos sostienen relaciones - hetero u homo sexuales - sin protección, fuera de casa. El SIDA es un problema de salud pública y, aunque hemos progresado, el camino a seguir para superar la amenaza que encarna es aun muy largo, por eso, la labor comunitaria, la difusión de la información y la distribución de las herramientas preventivas entre todas las comunidades y más aun entre aquellas remotas o desprevenidas es indispensable. Crear un futuro sin SIDA es responsabilidad de todos.

Parents Demand Better Education for Their Children Osvaldo Castillo El Obstervador

Middle Schools in San Jose are not performing at the level they need to be and many students have a disadvantage when they enter higher education institutions. An average of only 50% of elementary students are prepared to succeed in high school. These statistics are even bleaker for low-income and Latino students. When children, who are so far behind, enter high school they are more likely to dropout. Many people throughout San Jose believe the answer to this problem is charter schools such as Renaissance Academy and KIPP Heartwood Academy. On Monday, June 18,

hundreds of students and their parents met at the Mayfair Community Center to express their frustration about the long waiting list to get a charter school in East San Jose. The meeting was organized by PACT, People Acting in Community Together. The organization is urging Alum Rock Union School District to replicate proven models so that all students have access to excellent schools, and opportunities for success, in high school and college. One of those parents present at the meeting was Maria Teresa Barcenas. Her daughter attends KIPP Heartwood Academy and she has seen first hand how the charter school has helped her daughter suc-

ceed in her academics. “The teachers at KIPP are just more attentitive to the student’s needs and help out a lot when the students need help to understand what they are trying to teach,” Barcenas said. “My daughter has won several awards for her educational achievements.” Barcenas continued by saying that parents at charter schools are encouraged to participate in their children’s education. “Before, I used to drop her off at school and take off to work,” Barcenas said. “Now I speak to the teachers directly and we go over what my daughter needs to do in order to succeed in class.” To read the full story, visit: www.el-observador.com.

Prepare a sus hijos para los impuestos y deducciones de sus trabajos de verano Jason Alderman Su Dinero: Destrezas Prácticas

Los estudiantes secundarios y universitarios que buscan empleo temporario pueden tener dificultades este verano –una vez más- al competir con trabajadores mayores y más experimentados en una economía todavía en apuros. Pero si su hijo tiene la suerte de encontrar trabajo, hay algunas cosas que, tanto él o ella como usted, deberían saber sobre las ramificaciones económicas y fiscales del trabajo temporario: Deducciones del sueldo.

Si éste es su primer trabajo, adviértale a su hijo sobre las deducciones comunes que pueden llevarse una buena parte del dinero que cobra. Los culpables suelen ser los impuestos estaduales y federales, el Seguro Social y Medicare (FICA), el seguro de salud y de desempleo, los uniformes y las cuotas gremiales. Al comenzar un nuevo trabajo, su hijo deberá completar un formulario W-4 del IRS, el Certificado de Autorización de Retención del Empleado. Los empleadores utilizan este formulario para saber cuánto se debe retener del

sueldo en concepto de impuesto a las ganancias. Las instrucciones del formulario ayudan a determinar cuántas deducciones personales se pueden computar. Si trabajando en forma independiente su hijo gana más de $400 netos en 2012, también deberá pagar el impuesto al trabajo autónomo, aun cuando no adeude ningún impuesto a las ganancias. Este impuesto es similar a los impuestos del Seguro Social y Medicare que se retienen de los sueldos en relación de dependencia. El impuesto al trabajo autónomo se calcula al 13,3 por ciento del ingreso

autónomo neto declarado. El IRS ofrece una guía útil llamada “Ingresos Imponibles para Estudiantes” que explica los tipos de ingresos que pagan y no pagan impuestos (www. irs.gov). Por ejemplo, las propinas, los intereses de las cuentas bancarias y algunos gastos de becas (como alojamiento y comida) deben ser declarados como ingresos imponibles. Aportes a cuentas IRA: La jubilación es, probablemente, una de las últimas cosas que crucen por la mente de un adolescente, pero usted debe saber que

The Nation’s Report Card Releases Results from Innovative Science Assessment Students Conduct Experiments with Confidence but Struggle to Explain Results WASHINGTON

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is leading the way by measuring how well students apply their understanding of science in real-life contexts. The Nation’s Report Card Science in Action: Hands-On and Interactive Computer Tasks from the 2009 Science Assessment marks the first time that both tasks were included as part of the NAEP science assessment. Today’s results reveal that America’s fourth, eighth, and 12th graders can conduct science investigations using limited data sets, but many students lack the ability to explain results. The findings provide important insights for educators and policymakers who are looking for academic approaches that support careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields, and encourage scientific inquiry. “Science is fundamental to education because it is through scientific inquiry that students understand how to solve problems and ultimately how to learn,” said David Driscoll, chairman of the National Assessment Governing Board, which sets policy for NAEP. “So it’s tragic that our students are only grasping the basics and not doing the higher-level analysis and providing written explanations needed to succeed in higher education and compete in a global economy.” The purpose of using hands-on and interactive computer tasks in testing is to determine whether students can solve problems as a scientist would. Only 53 percent of 12th graders reported that they were enrolled in a science course, and only 28 percent

reported writing a report on a science project at least once a week. Ninety-two percent of fourth graders and 98 percent of eighth graders had teachers who reported doing hands-on science activities with students at least monthly. Thirty-nine percent of fourth graders and 57 percent of eighth graders had teachers who reported having at least a moderate emphasis on developing scientific writing skills. To correctly predict, students had to provide an accurate description of what might happen in a situation. For instance, when asked what kind of sunlight conditions were needed for a sun-loving plant and a shade-tolerant plant, 59 percent of fourth graders showed understanding that different plants have different sunlight needs. Through the observe phase, students watched what happened as they conducted their experiments. Eighty percent of fourth graders made straightforward observations and tested how fertilizer and sunlight affected plant growth, but only 35 percent could perform a higher-level task that required them to make decisions about the best fertilizer levels for a sun-loving plant. Students were then asked to explain what they had observed by interpreting data or drawing conclusions. Across all grade levels, a majority of students could observe, but far fewer could predict or explain. In fourth grade, fewer than 50 percent of students could explain why they selected a given fertilizer amount to support plant growth and use evidence to support their answer. At grade 8, 88 percent of students could correctly identify which liquid flowed at the same rate as water at a given

temperature, while only 54 percent could support this answer with a written explanation of the evidence. At twelfth grade, 64 percent of students could recommend the site for a new town based on information provided about water quality, while 75 percent of students could perform a straightforward investigation to test the water samples and accurately tabulate data. But only 11 percent were able to provide a valid recommendation.

Interactive computer tasks required students to solve scientific problems in a computer-based environment, often by simulating a natural or laboratory setting.

Eating Fish May Help Protect The Brain NAPS

A new and large-scale study says that enjoying a diet that includes fish and other foods that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids can be a bright idea. That’s because re­search indicates these fatty acids can help to protect the brain against the effects of aging. Dr. Zaldy Tan, a re­ searcher at UCLA and the lead author of a study on the effects of omega-3s on cognitive functions, said that even after controlling for participants’ age, gender, education, body mass index and smoking, “The relationship was still there.” Tan and others believe fish oil provides the greatest concentration of dietary omega-3 fatty acids. The types of fish that provide the highest concentration of the fatty acids are mackerel, lake trout, herring and

La prevalencia de asma esta en un nivel mas alto que nunca Los médicos de la nación urgen al publico que sepan los desencadenantes y síntomas

Durante un episodio de asma, las vías respiratorias inflamadas reaccionan a los desencadenantes ambientales como el humo, el polvo o el polen. Las vías respiratorias se estrechan y producen un exceso de mucosidad, lo que dificulta la respiración. WASHINGTON

Mientras se pone mas caluroso en el verano, los médicos de la nación quieren los que son afectados saben como prevenir una visita a la salón de emergencia. “La mayoría de la gente con asma viven vidas normales,” según el Dr. David Seaberg, el presidente del American College of Emergency Physicians. “Pero como médicos de emergencia, nosotros tratamos a pa-

Los 6 datos mas importantes sobre la acción diferida y los estudiantes del DREAM Act

Center for American Progress Washington, D.C.

La semana pasada el presidente Barack Obama anunció que su gobierno suspenderá la deportación (“acción diferida”) de jóvenes elegibles para el DREAM act y les autorizará permisos de trabajo, con efecto inmediato. Estos muchachos, quienes fueron traídos a los Estados Unidos cuando eran muy jóvenes, han vivido en el limbo mientras el Congreso ha jugado un fútbol político con sus vidas, al no aprobar el DREAM act y darles un camino hacia la legalización. Aunque la acción del presidente no puede concederles un estatus legal permanente, es un importante paso que les dará tranquilidad y la posibilidad de trabajar aun gran cantidad de personas.

Individuos que ya estén en el proceso de deportación que cumplen con los criterios de elegibilidad, ICE comenzará a ofrecerles inmediatamente la acción diferida. El anuncio del presidente planteó varias cuestiones; por eso, ofrecemos un poco de claridad por medio de los seis datos que necesitas saber sobre de la acción diferida y los estudiantes del DREAM Act: 1. ¿Tiene el presidente la autoridad para hacer esto? Sí. La acción diferida es un

tipo de actuación fiscal a la disposición del presidente como parte de la ley común de inmigración. Le permite al presidente a detener o suspender la deportación de una persona y conceder el permiso de trabajo a una persona. Presidentes de ambos partidos han usado la acción diferida con frecuencia desde 1971.

2. ¿Quién es elegible para la acción diferida? Como a las cláusulas de la versión del DREAM Act que fue aprobada por la Cámara baja en el 2010, cualquier persona entre las edades de 15 y 30 (que llegaron a los Estados Unidos antes de los 16 años) son elegible si han estado en los Estados Unidos por un mínimo de cinco años, se encuentran actualmente o han terminado la escuela secundaria, sirven en las fuerzas armadas o son veteranos, y no hayan sido condenados por un delito grave, delito menor, o faltas múltiples. 3. ¿Cuántas personas son elegibles? Alrededor de 1 millón de personas serán elegibles. Los DREAMers no ya conocidos por el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional tendrán la oportunidad de presentarse y solicitar la acción diferida. 4. ¿No es esto amnistía? Absolutamente no. La acción diferida sólo es un estatus temporal por dos años; no es la residencia permanente. No es una recompensa por algo, ni permite que cualquier inmigrante traiga a sus familiares a los Estados Unidos. Además, no aporta ninguna sola persona adicional en los Estados Unidos. Estos jóvenes ya viven aquí. Los DREAMers serán capaces de aplicar por este estatus, y sus residencias serán decididas caso por caso. Esto no es una forma de amnistía general.

5. ¿Esta política fomentará más inmigración ilegal? No. Esta política no es un imán para la inmigración de indocumentados, ni una solución a largo plazo para el problema. Sólo las personas que han estado en el país por un mínimo de cinco años antes de hoy son elegibles para solicitar esta protección temporal. Este mandato simplemente les permite a las personas que califican a dejar de preocuparse y empezar a mirar hacia su futuro, hasta que el Congreso pueda superar su parálisis político. 6. ¿Sigue siendo necesario que el Congreso apruebe el DREAM Act? ¡Sí! El anuncio del presidente sólo da un estatus legal temporal a los jóvenes elegibles para el DREAM act, y puede ser revocada con el trazo de una pluma por el próximo presidente. Sólo el Congreso puede aprobar una ley- el DREAM act- para proteger a estos estudiantes de forma permanente y darles un camino a la ciudadanía. Sólo aquellos individuos que puedan demostrar mediante documentación verificable que cumplen con estos criterios serán elegibles para la acción diferida. Los individuos no serán elegibles si no se encuentran actualmente en los Estados Unidos y no pueden probar que han estado presentes físicamente en los Estados Unidos durante un período no inferior a 5 años inmediatamente anterior a la fecha de hoy. Las solicitudes de acción diferida se decidirán individualmente caso por caso. El DHS no puede dar ninguna garantía de que dichas solicitudes sean concedidas. El uso de la discreción procesal no otorga ningún derecho fundamental, estatus migratorio ni camino hacia la ciudadanía. Solo el Congreso, actuando a través de su autoridad legislativa, puede otorgar estos derechos.

Sesión Informativa de acción diferida La administración Obama ha anunciado que va a posponer la deportación de DREAM Act-elegible jóvenes y adultos de 30 años y menores, y, posiblemente, ofrecer la autorización de trabajo. Aunque la decisión de la Administración es una gran noticia para los jóvenes y adultos que se encuentran actualmente bajo la edad de 31 años, el proceso de aplicación federal no ha sido determinada, dejando lugar a interpretaciones erróneas y para los profesionales de inmigración sin escrúpulos para aprovecharse de los inmigrantes de bajos ingresos y las familias del estado de mezcla. CET’s Immigration and Citizenship Program está ofreciendo un taller de bajo costo para los jóvenes y las familias que deseen aprender más y tiene preguntas o inquietudes acerca de su elegibilidad. Los participantes que asisten a este taller aprenderás: • sobre el proceso, • f orma en que el próximo Presidente de los Estados Unidos es fundamental para sostener la acción diferida, • Los riesgos de la aplicación a través de los profesionales de inmigración sin escrúpulos, y • cómo prepararse mejor para la implementación de la nueva acción diferida. Dónde: Centro de entrenamiento para empleo 701 Vine Street, San José, CA 95110 Fecha: Jueves, 28 de junio 2012 Hora: Registro: 5:30 PM. Las plazas son limitadas. Presentación: 18:00-19:00 Idioma: Inglés (abierto a todos los jóvenes, los inmigrantes y las familias mixtas de estado) Donación sugerida: $ 10.00 adultos (edades 18 +) / Juventud $ 5.00

Homeless youth want a place to call ���home” strive to increase program development and funding which would include a focus on transition, education, employment, and assistance with repairing permanent relationships for homeless youth. “It’s not their fault that

On June 18, homeless youth and supporters marched through the street of downtown San Jose, making a stop at St. James Park. Cinthia Rodriguez El Observador

Dozens of homeless youth and supporters marched in downtown San Jose in an effort to bring awareness to the problems they face daily. California Youth Connection (CYC) organized the march. The group had invited legislators, supervisors, and city council members but none showed up. “We need to get some attention to this area because there are lots of people that are out there homeless,” said Connie Hernandez Robbins, Supporter, CYC Santa Clara County. CYC is a youth led nonprofit organization that develops leaders who empower each other, and their communities, to transform the foster care system through legislative policy change. There are 35 chapters across California. Each deals with a local community issue. The Santa Clara County CYC chapter chose to focus on homeless youth because many of their members were homeless or knew someone who was homeless. They’ve been working on their concerns about homeless youth and the services specifically by 18-24 year olds. They want something to be done. After their research and their own experiences, they came up with ways to address the lack of re-

sources for homeless youth. “I was homeless, sleeping on different people’s couches or floors because I did not have a stable place to live,” said Kanisha Green, chair, CYC Santa Clara County. “Since I was homeless I was not able to receive any resources (because I had no address).” The Santa Clara County CYC chapter wants people to pay attention to the lack of services. While foster youth are offered assistance, it is nearly impossible for homeless youth to get the same access . They don’t have access to transitional services that include a place to live, help finding employment and medical attention. There are issues with separation of family members after youth turn 18. Once that happens, they are considered adults, not necessarily part of the family and can be separated due to shortage of space at a shelter. Youth can also end up homeless because their family is abusive, passing of family members, running away from a group home. There are also youth who go through the foster care system that aged out (reached 18) and became homeless. Whatever the reason, they are left with no support. San Jose completed its most recent count in 2011, identifying 601 un-

accompanied homeless youth age 24 and under, which is well over the 373 youth counted in 2009. “There are almost no services for youth who do not go into the foster care system,” said Green.

Santa Clara County CYC aims to increase youth involvement, ages 18-24, in developing homeless youthcentered drop-in centers, support services, and increasing housing slots in Santa Clara County. They

fortaleza en sí mismos así como también una conexión con su herencia cultural. A pesar de las dificultades económicas que enfrenta Zapata y el distrito escolar al que pertenece, el carismático director del conjunto mariachi, Adrian Padilla, trabaja para crear un grupo musical con un nivel tal de competencia que es capaz de competir contra escuelas más grandes y privilegiadas del estado de Texas. Los resueltos estudiantes que conforman Mariachi Halcon no son solo músicos talentosos, sino también alumnos destacados, que se encuentran entre los estudiantes con el mejor rendimiento académico de la Zapata High School. Durante los últimos cinco años, todos los alumnos que formaron parte de Mariachi Halcon por cuatro años se graduaron de la escuela secundaria e

ingresaron a una institución de educación superior. “En una época en la que los latinos tienen el índice de deserción más alto del país y en la que la educación artística sigue recibiendo ataques, encontramos una historia de adolescentes que buscan lograr la excelencia a través de su herencia cultural a pesar de enfrentar algunos desafíos muy reales”, comenta la productora y directora de MARIACHI HIGH, Ilana Trachtman. “Esta es una historia desbordante de vida y entusiasmo sobre un grupo de adolescentes mexicoamericanos con ambición y talento, como casi nunca puede verse en la pantalla”.

HOT Summer Days

I know there are a lot of items in your closet that meet this criteria, but you just have to think outside the box. Be creative and dare to create something new. Pair that bright colored cardigan with a neutral lowcut tank, add a pencil skirt and some cute strappy heels and you have a winning outfit that is comfy and cute. The second criteria you have to remember when choosing an outfit is the weather. With summer around the corner and those hot days fast approaching choosing the right fabric is just as important.

Juan Carlos Miranda Special to El Observador

We’ve all been there before; sunny hot day even as we step out of the house, five minutes later and you feel the need to go back home for a change of outfits. Suddenly the thought pops into your head, “what if this outfit is a little too provocative or revealing?” followed by “my boss is sure to give me a raise.” But let’s say you are not really looking for a raise or the attention of your creepy boss, or co-worker, how in the world are you supposed to dress appropriately for these hot summer days? No, you don’t have to spend an entire paycheck on new summer clothes because I know not all of us can afford such a thing. Except my bff who thinks he can afford pretty much anything he wants; three maxed out

credit cards and endless collection calls later he realizes how clueless he really was. Now don’t be like my bff and think you can pay off all your credit charges later. Trust me, you’ll never get out of debt. But I’m not here to give you financial advice, I’m here to give you style advice, so let’s get to it. You can easily upgrade many of the items in your closet by being clever and avoid spending a penny. Always keep in mind that you are dressing, first for you, second, for the day ahead, and third for the rest of people. When you stand in front of your closet in the morning thinking about what outfit you’ll wear for the day, think comfort ability. There’s a point in everyone’s life when we realize it’s better to be comfortable than fancy, but who says we can’t have our cake and eat it too?

One item that should always be part of any woman’s closet is, the always fashionable, maxi dress. Maxi dresses are simple, light weight and they look good on every shape. It is not written anywhere you can’t wear a maxi dress to the office. I know a lot of people are against the idea but trust me, as long as you accessorize that dress appropriately you won’t look like you belong at the beach, although you might wish you did. Again, think outside the box. I’m all for taking risks, however there is a line that should never be crossed. After your outfit has met the first couple of rules: think that you’re always dressing for everyone else too. Even though the outfit you chose might be comfortable and stylish, it might not be appropriate for everyone. If your tatas are overflowing or your skirt is so short that everyone can see your pikachu everytime you bent, well, then you might be in the wrong line of work. Look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself, what type of hot do I look like? ‘Stylish hot’, or ‘I work around the corner’ hot? Depending on which one you prefer will decide your outfit. So which

tell ‘hot’ are

me, you?

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER explores the secret life of our 16th president, and the untold story that shaped our nation. Visionary filmmakers Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov (director of “Wanted”) bring a fresh voice to the bloodthirsty lore of the vampire, imagining Lincoln as history’s greatest hunter of the undead. Abraham Lincoln. Vampire Hunter. The very words evoke a juxtaposition that is unexpected, if not downright bizarre. Yet it’s an idea to which the filmmakers have fully committed. Their work is a portrait of the man and leader we’ve all studied and the seminal events that defined him and our nation – interwoven with the immersive, visceral action of a vampire story.

At the same time, ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER presents the Great Emancipator as the country’s first superhero. The vampires’ principal foe is one of history’s most

beloved figures, whom many consider our greatest president. This story covers 45 years in Abraham Lincoln’s life, from 1820 to 1865, and is set in Kentucky, Illinois, and Louisiana and, of course, the nation’s capital.

BRAVE

Brave sigue el heroico viaje de Merida, una hábil arquera e impetuosa joven, hija del Rey Fergus (voz de Billy Connolly) y de la Reina Elinor (voz de Emma Thompson). Decidida a forjar su propio camino en la vida, Mérida desafía una antigua y sagrada costumbre de los señores de la

tierra: el enorme Lord McGuffin (voz de Kevin McKidd), el hosco Lord Macintosh (voz de Craig Ferguson) y el cascarrabias Lord Dingwall (voz de Robbie Coltrane). Inadvertidamente, sus acciones desatan el caos y la furia en el reino, y cuando Mérida acude a una anciana y excéntrica adivina (voz

de Julie Walters) en busca de ayuda, lo único que se le concede es un deseo mal logrado. El consecuente peligro la forzará a descubrir el real significado de la valentía, una virtud que necesitará para deshacer una bestial maldición antes de que sea demasiado tarde.

Tito Puente que dejó legado, Venicio del Toro, la JLO, Tito Trinidad, Chayanne, Steven Bower, Robi Draco, Ricky Martín, el Gran Combo de Puerto Rico, 5 miss universos y casi siempre o ganan o son finalistas en concursos de belleza.

Si señores, la música boricua se toca desde San Juan, Miami, Bayamón, Aguadilla y Nueva York, hasta París, Caracas, Madrid o Kuala Lumpur. Cristóbal Colón descubrió el 19 de noviembre de 1493 a la isla de Puerto Rico durante su segundo viaje a las Américas. Los indígenas la llamaban Borikén. La isla fue bautizada en nombre de San Juan Bautista. El 19 de noviembre de 1969, el Papa

Pablo VI, firmó un decreto mediante el cual se declaró oficialmente a la Virgen de la Divina Providencia, como patrona principal de la isla del encanto. En el mismo decreto, se unieron las dos grandes festividades del pueblo puertorriqueño, ya que la isla también fue descubierta un 19 de noviembre. Es un pueblo religioso. Nick Divin, un puertorriqueño dice: ”lo que más amo de mi patria es la hospitalidad, y admiro de manera especial a Iris Chacón”. ¡Bingo! Iris en los ochentas bailaba como una diosa eroticocaribeña y le dejó el ojo cuadrado nada más y nada menos que al Rey Hussein de Jordania. ¡Epa! El 23 de junio habra un “Dia de San Juan” festival en el History Park de San Jose, 1650 Senter Rd.

Cars Land está listo para visitantes

Radiator Springs cuenta con tres atracciones nuevas, personajes y sitios familiares de la película ‘Cars’ rantes temáticos también lucen sumamente familiares para los fanáticos de la película, incluyendo el Hotel Cozy Cone, Ramone’s casa de arte, el Café Flo V8, y Inn de Fillmore Taste. Son diferentes y ofrecen su experiencia única.

Gabriel Rodríguez Special to El Observador

El Lugar más Feliz del Mundo será más feliz que nunca con la inauguración de Cars Land, lo más importante en la expansión del Parque Disney California Adventure, un proyecto que duró cinco años. Cars Land suma 12 acres de emoción inversiva con diversión familiar y trae el pueblito de Radiator Springs al mundo real tal como los visitantes lo recuerdan de la película “Cars” de Disney Pixar. La gran re-apertura de Disneylandia’s Aventura California fue una gran celebración. Ofrece lo mejor de Radiador Springs. Los festejos nocturnos comenzaron con arribos VIP a la alfombra roja, incluyendo a los actores vo-

cales de la película “Cars”.

Los tractores de Mater, las vacas de la película, bailan al ritmo de la música country de Mater. Los tractorcitos dan la vuelta en todas las direcciones. Es una atracción que toda la familia puede disfrutar. Es parecido a las tazas que se encuentran en Disneylandia.

Fue la inauguración de tres nuevas atracciones, llantas volantes de Luigi, tractores de Mater y los corredores de Radiator Springs. Son una de las atracciones más grandes y elaboradas jamás creadas para un parque de Disney. Las llantas volantes de Luigi es una atracción similar a platillos voladores

con un toque de los coches de choque. Los visitantes se sientan sobre llantas gigantescas, para controlarlas el pasajero uso su propio peso. Con el fin de mover a la izquierda, mueve su cuerpo hacia la izquierda y así sucesivamente. También hay pelotas de playa gigantes, de color rojo, blanco y verde. La gente llega a lanzar las pelotas unos a otros y es un buen momento.

Los corredores de Radiator Springs es la atracción principal y en mi opinión,

el mejor de los tres. Allí los visitantes suben a bordo de automóviles y transcurren al aire libre dándole un vistazo de las montañas del Valle Ornament. Los automóviles se lanzan a la carretera para competir en una carrera a alta velocidad. Me imagino que es un sueño hecho realidad para todos los niños que han visto las películas. Las tiendas y restau-

El camino que lleva a Cars Land está cubierto de letreros de neón animados que rememoran los viajes por la Ruta 66 en la década del ‘50. Al igual que los otros aspectos del área, los letreros de neón son representaciones tridimensionales de varios de los iconos de la película “Cars”. Padres consideren llevar a sus hijos a esta tierra de coches para disfrutar de este nuevo lugar mágico. Te invito a ver más fotos, visita www. el- obser va dor.c om.

El delantero español Raúl Tamudo ya está en México para incorporarse al Pachuca, equipo al cual aseguró no viene de vacaciones y tampoco a retirarse, sino a aportar lo mejor de él para alcanzar los objetivos planteados. “Aunque tengo 34 años no vengo pensando en eso (en el retiro), me considero un buen profesional, vengo

a darlo todo y no vengo de vacaciones. Para ir de vacaciones hubiera ido a un hotel cinco estrellas, a tomar el sol, vengo a jugar, dejo a mi mujer embarazada, y vengo a hacer lo mejor posible”, dijo. Entrevistado a su llegada en la Terminal Uno del Aeropuerto Internacional de la Ciudad de México, el ibérico mencionó que “todo el mundo me ha hablado muy bien de Pachuca, vengo con mucha ilusión, con muchas ganas de ayudar en todo lo que

pueda con mi experiencia”. “Me comprometo a trabajar mucho, a ser leal, hacer lo máximo que pueda en el campo, si es marcando goles muchísimo mejor y ayudando a todos los compañeros”, estableció. El jugador reconoció que la presencia de Hugo Sánchez en el banquillo del cuadro hidalguense fue un factor significativo para aceptar emigrar al balompié mexicano.

Roberto Carlos regresa al área de la bahia Rody Duran Especial para El Observador

El pasado día 15 de junio se presento el cantautor brasileño Roberto Carlos en la bahía, ante un lleno casi total. Había personas de todas las edades, cabe hacer notar que jovencitas de entre los 18 y 20 años coreaban sus canciones, uno nunca se imagina que el romanticismo estuviera tan actual entre las jovencitas. Hijo de Robertino Braga y Laura Moreira Braga y oriundo de Cachoeiro de Itapemirim Brasil nació el 19 de Abril de 1941 y desde principios de su carrera no ha dejado de deleitarnos con su suave y melancólica voz.

El show que tuvo lugar en el HP Pavillion no pudo ser mas emotivo, era difícil abstenerse de corear y acompañar a Roberto Carlos con la letra de sus melodías. Abrió el concierto con “que será de ti”, siguiendo canciones como “detalles”, “Jesucristo”, cama y mesa” y un sinfín de otras melodías y era tanta así el ansia de seguir escuchando sus canciones que la gente le pedía “otra”, “otra”, regresando tres veces mas porque la gente no lo dejabamos. Un detalle muy bonito que tuvo en esta presentación fue que al final del show entrego aproximadamente

Cantautor brasileño Roberto Carlos. 200 rosas a sus admiradoras de entre el publico besando cada una de las rosas. Y bueno como todo llega a su fin todos regresamos a

casa felices de haber escuchado y visto en persona a nada más y nada menos que a Roberto Carlos una leyenda viviente de la música en español y portugués.
