Measure will be on November Ballot

County to Propose Minor Sales Tax Increase SANTA CLARA COUNTY, CA

The County of Santa Clara Board of Supervisors approved the first reading of an Ordinance (Ordinance No. NS. 7.13) that would ask voters to increase sales tax by one-eighth cent in November, increasing the local tax rate from 8.375% to 8.5%. The Board will review the matter at its August 7th Board meeting, when it comes up for a second reading. If the measure is approved by voters, revenues collected from the proposed one-eighth cent general purpose sales tax could be an estimated $500 million over 10 years. The sales tax would go into effect April 1, 2013, and sunset in 10 years.

well as those of the future, the County of Santa Clara has created the Center for Leadership and Transformation (CLT) program. The CLT will drive the change that needs to take place in the organization to find new and more efficient ways to deliver excellent services. 

 In addition, last year, County employees and labor unions gave up wages, salaries, and benefits valued at $75 million in ongoing savings. “Moving forward with a one-eighth cent sales tax is the next logical step following tough choices we’ve made over the past few years,” said Supervisor Dave Cortese. 


“The County must take steps to ensure its own destiny,” said President George Shirakawa, Board of Supervisors. “We have struggled for 10 consecutive years with substantial budget reductions to services and programs, and faced with uncertain funding from the state and federal government, we have to look to a sales tax to continue critical services to the community.” 



The measure, approved in a 4-1 vote (Supervisor Mike Wasserman dissenting), will be placed on the November 6, 2012, general election ballot, and if approved, would be used as County General Fund revenues that are unrestricted in their use and can be applied to any and all County governmental purposes such as:

To meet the continuing fiscal challenges and position the organization to respond to current needs as

• Trauma and emergency services, including the Burn Center, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and

a level I Trauma Center at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center. • Preventive health programs including prenatal care, pediatric care, obesity prevention, and diabetes care. • Public safety services including fire and Sheriff. • Economic development programs to support job creation in Santa Clara Valley. • Disease prevention programs to stop the spread of tuberculosis, syphilis, HIV and other diseases. • Housing for homeless children and families. • Dental care, mental health, and drug and alcohol treatment. • Emergency ness.

prepared-

The Board requested the administration report back at the August 7 meeting with additional information on specific County services that would receive funding from the proposed oneeighth cent sales tax, as well as how the current economic and employment outlook will affect the County.

Supreme Court Upholds President Obama’s Health Care Reform Nancy-Ann DeParle White House Deputy Chief of Staff

Let’s take a look at what the ruling means for the middle class: •

Insurance companies no longer have unchecked power to cancel your policy, deny you coverage, or charge women more than men. • Soon, no American will ever again be denied care or

charged more due to a preexisting condition, like cancer or even asthma. • Preventive care will still be covered free of charge by insurance companies-including mammograms for women and wellness visits for seniors. • By August, millions of Americans will receive a rebate because their insurance company spent too much of

their premium on administrative costs or CEO bonuses. • 5.3 million seniors will continue to save $600 a year on their prescription drugs. • Efforts to strengthen and protect Medicare by cracking down on waste, fraud, and abuse will remain in place. • 6.6 million young adults will still be able to stay on their family’s plan until they’re 26.

SB 1070: no hay ganadores PARTICIPATORY DEMOCRACY IS AT RISK Maribel Hastings


America’s Voice

The American democracy has been a work in progress since July 4, 1776. Evidence of that abounds everywhere. Be aware that this was a benchmark in the process which began prior to the Declaration of Independence and was followed by the U.S. Constitution. The Constitution defines the role of the federal government. The main concern, then, was defining the state’s rights, which are defined by the U.S. Constitution as being everything not specifically assigned as federal responsibilities in this historic document. This was underscored by the recent 5 to 3 Supreme Court ruling on Arizona’s law, which attempted to deal with illegal immigrants and U.S.-Mexico border enforcement. The State of Arizona retained its right of having its law enforcement agents continue to be able to ‘ask for your papers’. The U.S. Supreme Court took a balanced constitutional stance in this case but reinforced the laws which already existed. Basically, if a suspect is in custody, police may verify legal status. In fact, that information may be requested 24/7 from the appropriate federal agency. What is being endangered, by the laws which some 20 states are considering, is the right of citizens to vote by requiring voter I.D.s. In the past, poll taxes were used to keep targeted communities from voting. The recent mantra “your vote is your voice’ is right on. Latinos may have large numbers, however, if their citizens do not register to vote and actually vote, they end up with no power to influence legislation which reflects their priorities. What are the public policy issues which impact Latinos? What would it mean to have the Latinos vote in the numbers possible today? Latino voters could influ-

ence jobs and the economy, education, medical care, fair housing practices, the immigration/citizen naturalization process and a host of other public policy issues. The 60 million Latino residents are being recognized now for their importance as a presidential election swing vote. Neither presidential candidate can be the “President to the U.S.A.” during the next four year term (2013 to 2017) without significant Latino voter support. Resident Latino voters have a unique opportunity to make history by voting in significant numbers on Tuesday, November 6, 2012. This has not happened yet, so many interested parties wonder what it will take to motivate the ”Latino Vote”. There are so many reasons for Latinos to vote. Do you want the local education system to improve in your community? Then Latinos must elect more Latinos to the school boards. It is necessary to become involved, engaged, and outspoken about the need for education reform. Too many dropouts are Latinos. Without basic knowledge and skills, an individual simply cannot function in the current technology era. An ability to earn a living, which permits one to earn enough to support one’s family, can no longer be achieved with human labor because automation and mechanization have eliminated many of those bracero opportunities. Latinos need to elect local, state, and national officials who are held accountable in the

Latinos need to become leaders in curbing the abuse by corporations and PACs. The Latino voter could begin to rectify the current business practices which concentrate wealth, accept all subsidies and entitlements, while refusing to allocate tax payments which support the very same infrastructure essential for doing business. There must be a creative way to distribute the wealth equitably. The middle class income and consumer power must be re-established. Latinos have defended and fought for America in every conflict beginning with the Revolutionary War. This ethnic group has the highest number of Congressional Medal of Honor awardees. It is only recently that the true influence of the Battle at Pueblo was recognized. Here on Cinco de Mayo, Mexican military forces defeated the French to prevent France from assisting the secessionist Southern states. Cinco de Mayo is celebrated in America, not Mexico. On July 4th, resolve to be involved. Let your vote speak in volumes this coming Presidential Election Day, Tuesday, November 6, 2012. Act responsibly with patriotic votes re-establishing democratic government of the people, by the people and for the people rather than for special interests. Today American democracy is at risk of being bought by special interest money. It is not enough to be a ‘resident’. it is time that Latinos vote like the patriotic people they already are. Without their involvement, participatory democracy is at risk. Hilbert Morales is the Publisher of El Observador. Email him at: hmorales@el-observador.com

En mi natal Puerto Rico había un programa infantil conducido por un personaje, el Tío Nobel, que llevaba a cabo competencias entre los asistentes con un singular detalle: nunca habían perdedores. Sólo ganadores o casi ganadores. Recordé al personaje cuando se desataron los usuales análisis de quién gana o quién pierde con el fallo que declaró anticonstitucional tres cuartas partes de la SB 1070 de Arizona, pero sostuvo su parte central, la Sección 2(B) que permite que la policía indague sobre la situación migratoria de detenidos o arrestados si existe “sospecha razonable” de que son indocumentados. La sección no podía declararse anticonstitucional, a juicio del máximo tribunal, porque no se ha implementado y no existen pruebas de que, en efecto, haya resultado en discriminación. Pero en Arizona ya hay historial de perfil racial y discriminación en la aplicación de programas migratorios federales, particularmente el 287(g) en el condado de Maricopa que encabeza el alguacil Joe Arpaio. En la eterna búsqueda de ganadores o perdedores desde el punto de vista político, se pasa por alto que perdemos todos: los indocumentados sumidos en un limbo por la falta de reforma migratoria y forzados a sumirse más en las sombras; los residentes legales o ciudadanos que luzcan extranjeros o hablen con acento y que corren el riesgo de ser discriminados por leyes al estilo de Arizona; pierden las economías e imágenes de los estados. Se pierden tiempo y esfuerzos en combatir leyes anticonstitucionales. Pero hay elecciones y hay que buscar quién puede beneficiarse más por un fallo que se produce a meses de los comicios presidenciales inyectando aún más el tema migratorio al proceso electoral.

El presidente Obama, sin cristalizar su promesa de reforma migratoria de 2008, anunció el 15 de junio que al menos proveerá un alivio temporal de la deportación a ciertos jóvenes indocumentados.

Con un récord de deportaciones bajo el brazo, principalmente mediante los programas de colaboración con policías estatales 287(g) y Comunidades Seguras, la administración Obama ha defendido su postura de ‘a Dios rogando y con el mazo dando’. Sin la reforma, fijó la política administrativa de discreción procesal para centrar las deportaciones en lo peor de lo peor, pero la implementación ha sido un fracaso. Tras la SB 1070 y sus copias en diversos estados, el Departamento de Justicia entabló demandas argumentando la preeminencia del gobierno federal en inmigración y su oposición a un mosaico de 50 leyes migratorias. Ante el fallo del Supremo, el Departamento de Justicia asegura que estará muy vigilante a la potencial violación de derechos civiles por la vigencia de la Sección 2(B) y el propio presidente

externó su preocupación.

Así llega Obama a la lucha por el voto latino. Cuando por fin actúa, ve que su aprobación entre los votantes latinos mejora. Su reto seguirá siendo movilizarlos a las urnas. Por el bando republicano, Mitt Romney, durante el proceso primarista, llegó a decir que la SB 1070 podría ser modelo nacional. Y afirmó que una de sus primeras acciones si fuera electo presidente sería anular las demandas del Departamento de Justicia en contra de leyes migratorias estatales como la SB 1070. Ahora sus emisarios tratan de balancear su no específico mensaje: uno para su base más conservadora diciendo que estados como Arizona tienen el derecho de actuar ante la falta de acción a nivel federal; y otro para los latinos de que entienden a Arizona pero que la SB 1070 no es la solución, como ha dicho el senado. Y como el Tío Nobel no decidirá si hay un casi ganador, sólo habrá un ganador y entre el voto hispano, por lo menos, Romney pinta, por ahora, como un perdedor.

Believing in the DREAM Osvaldo Castillo El Observador

President Obama and Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano announced they will make deferred action available to certain undocumented individuals who were brought to the U.S. at a young age and are currently living in the U.S. Effective immediately, certain young people who were brought to the United States through no fault of their own as young children, and meet several key criteria, will no longer be removed from the country or entered into removal proceedings. “This announcement by the President has excited many who are undocumented,” said Mary Giovagnoli, Director, Immigration Policy Center. “But there are many questions that need to be answered.” The administration will be taking Deferred Action, which is a discretionary determination to defer removal action of an individual as an act of prosecutorial discretion. Deferred Action does not confer lawful status upon an individual. In addition, although an alien granted deferred action will not be considered to be accruing unlawful presence in the United States during the period deferred action is in effect, deferred action does not absolve individuals of any previous or subsequent periods of unlawful presence. “It is a way for the administration to take a look at students’ situations on

a case by case basis,” said Hiroshi Motomura, Professor of Law, University of California, and Los Angeles. “This is not a form of legalization but an interim form of dealing with this issue.” Though this decision has excited those who are directly affected, Crystal Williams, Executive Director, American Immigration Lawyers Association, believes that the best thing that a student can do to help their situation is to wait and see if they qualify Deferred Action. “There will be many who will see this as an opportunity to scam those affected by offering them so called ‘legal advice’,” Williams said. “If you are on the verge of being removed, contact ICE to see if you qualify for Deferred Action.” The decision has also affected President Obama’s approval rating among Latinos. “This is a smart decision for the President,” said Marshall Fitz, Director of Immigration Policy, Center for American Progress. “This is a position that is held by many throughout the country, including many swing voters. Mitt Romney has not offered a solution to this issue and has said he will veto the Dream Act.” USCIS and ICE expect to begin implementation of the application processes within sixty days. In the meantime, individuals seeking more information on the new policy should visit USCIS’s website (at www.uscis.gov).

¿Se muda? Asegúrese que sus pertenencias estén protegidas ARA

El estadounidense promedio se muda 11.7 durante su vida, según la Oficina del Censo de los Estados Unidos. Y con la mudanza de tantas personas, es importante proteger las pertenencias del hogar durante el traslado o durante su almacenaje antes de llegar al nuevo lugar de residencia, según

Charles Valinotti, Director de Productos y Seguros de la aseguradora QBE. Su póliza de seguros de dueño de vivienda protegerá sus pertenencias personales, ya sea las ubicadas en su hogar o en un camión de mudanzas. Sin embargo, podría existir un límite de tiempo, y la protección la de la propiedad que se traslada o almacena sería solamente

hasta ciertos límites monetarios. También debe tener en cuenta: • Si contrata una agencia de mudanzas o expedidora profesional, verifique que está asegurada y garantizada para cubrir los daños que pudieran ocasionar. Considere comprar seguro adicional.

• Si usted mismo empaca y se muda en un camión alquilado, lea primero su póliza de seguro de automóvil. “No asuma que su póliza le da cobertura si está tras el volante de un camión de mudanzas de 26 pies y 13.000 libras”, advierte Valinotti.

sus pertenencias bajo llave y aseguradas durante el viaje.

• Si se muda por su cuenta, empacar con cuidado es vital, así como mantener

• Averigüe el valor de las pertenencias de alto precio que va a trasladar.

• Tome nota de las condiciones de las pertenencias que reubicará, para que, en caso de hacer una reclamación, dichas condiciones estén documentadas debidamente.

Valinotti añade que la preparación para una mudanza es una ocasión ideal para revisar su cobertura general de seguros y garantizar que está adecuadamente cubierto, o si necesita incrementar sus límites. “Un buen vistazo a la cobertura de seguros cada dos años es algo que todos debemos hacer”, agrega. “Y no tenemos que esperar a estar listo para mudarse”.

Five Tips For Planning For Retirement StatePoint

Whether you’re in your first job or nearing the golden years, retirement planning should be a top priority. Taking charge of your

savings, regardless of your life stage, will help ensure that you get “to” and “through” retirement -while living the lifestyle you think is right for you. “Today, one of the only vehicles most people have

to save for retirement is through their employersponsored retirement plan,” said Chuck Cornelio, president of Retirement Plan Services at the Lincoln Financial Group. “Scheduling

Take charge of your retirement savings to live the life you want. an annual check-in with your retirement consultant or financial adviser will help you ensure your investments are matched with your risk tolerance, and help you stay on track with your overall retirement goals.” Consider the following five points when reviewing and taking charge of your retirement savings: • Invest your income boosts: If you receive an increase in income like a company bonus, salary increase, tax return or an expense reduction like paying off a car or a loan, it’s a great time to put those extra dollars towards retirement savings. • Consolidate assets: If you still have retirement funds from previous employers, roll those balances into your current company’s retirement plan. Having all your retirement

assets in one place simplifies retirement investing and income planning. • Reduce taxable income: The money you contribute to your employer-sponsored retirement plan is not included in your current taxable income. So the more you save, the lower your income taxes. Taxes aren’t due on the money saved or on any investment earnings until the money is taken out of your 401(k) plan. And the good news is that by the time you withdraw money and pay taxes, you’ll most likely be in a lower tax bracket. • Review your investments: Ask your employer about retirement planning education, online tools, or one-on-one support to help you make sure your investment strategy is in line with your overall retirement goals as well as your risk tolerance. Take

advantage of all the resources available to you. • Maximize match benefits: Make sure you’re contributing enough to take full advantage of any company matching program. This is one of the most valuable benefits of saving for retirement through your employer. If you’re not doing this, you’re simply leaving money on the table. If you’re enrolled in your company’s retirement plan, you’re already on the right track. Remember to stay on track and take greater charge of your retirement plan. More information on saving for retirement can be found at www. L i nc ol n F i n a nc i a l . c om . To be better prepared for the years ahead, challenge yourself to step back and think about retirement in a new way, considering both savings and planning.

Efforts to Help Struggling Students Pass Exit Exam SAN FRANCISCO

State-funded support services for students who fail the California High School Exit Exam in grade 10 have helped only a small percentage of students go on to pass the test and obtain their diplomas, according to a report released by the Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC). The PPIC report assesses the impact of two state laws allocating funds to districts for tutoring and other services to help students pass the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE), which is administered several times before the end of grade 12. One law, AB 128, funds tutoring and other support for students primarily in grades 11 and 12. A second, AB 347, provides two additional years of support for students to re-enroll in school if they have failed to pass the exam by the end

of grade 12. The PPIC report evaluates these laws using data from the San Diego Unified School District, the second largest in California. It also assesses the impact of exam prep classes created by the district for students in grades 11 and 12 who have not passed the exam. These classes teach students about the structure of the exam and test-taking strategies, as well as focus on the knowledge needed to pass the test’s two components, math and English language arts. The report finds that tutoring provided under AB 128 has not helped students pass the exam. The other two interventions studied— supporting students who re-enroll to take the test and providing prep classes— helped students to a limited extent. Taken together, these interventions helped only 1.5 to 3 percent of students pass both sections of

The CAHSEE must be passed before graduating high school. the exam. “It is clear that we need better ways to help students in high school—or new efforts to help them prepare for the exam well before they first take it in grade 10,” says Julian Betts, co-author of the report, a Bren policy fellow at PPIC and professor at UC San Diego.

There have been modest improvements in exit exam results in the years since it became a requirement with the class of 2006. But in 2010 about 1 in 16 students statewide failed to pass the exam before the end of grade 12. Just less than 1 in 3 students in grade 10 students failed on their first try. The exam is a high-stakes test, not only for students but also for schools and districts. Exam results are used to calculate the Academic Performance Index—the measure used in California’s public school accountability program—and are the sole measure used to determine whether high schools have made “Adequate Yearly Progress” under the No Child Left Behind Act. The report’s authors cite several reasons why early intervention is a more promising approach for helping struggling students. First, the skills needed to

7

pass both the English and math sections are taught throughout elementary and middle school, and there is little reason to wait to help struggling students. Second, tutoring and extra classes are less expensive than re-enrolling students after four years of high school—for taxpayers and for the students themselves. Finally, steady support for students spread over many grades is more likely to have a lasting effect on students’ capabilities than 11th-hour interventions.

quires that school districts be able to identify students at risk of failing the exam. Earlier work by Betts and co-author Andrew Zau demonstrated that data from as early as grade 4 could accurately identify students at risk of failing the high school exit exam. The current PPIC report shows that data from as early as grade 2 are highly predictive and can help districts identify elementary school students likely to have trouble with the exam many years in their future.

The report points out that early intervention is now possible under AB 128. This funding can now be used more flexibly than in the past, allowing districts to use the state money however they see fit and to provide tutoring for any type of assistance earlier than grades 11 and 12.

In conjunction with this report, the authors have developed a CAHSEE Early Warning Model that California school districts can use to identify at-risk students. The Early Warning Model allows districts to forecast the probability that a student passes the exam in grade 10 based on student characteristics observed either in grade 6 or grade 8.

Disfrute del verano con actividades físicas y divertidas

Cuando sus niños ven que usted es físicamente activo, probablemente harán lo mismo. NAPSM

­Los días más cortos del año se terminaron y ahora que los días son más largos utilícelos para hacer más actividad física con su familia. Mantenerse al tanto de las actividades escolares de sus hijos puede tenerlo muy ocupado, pero haciendo pequeños cambios en esta primavera puede traer muchos bene­ficios. Antes de que se dé cuenta, su familia será mucho más activa y saludable. Los padres son un modelo para sus hijos, cuando ellos los vean alimentarse de una manera saludable y siendo activos, es muy probable que hagan lo mismo. Para lograrlo no es necesario tener equipos deportivos costosos o membrecías. Por el contrario, existen maneras divertidas y creativas para que su familia sea más activa. Empiece apuntando las actividades diarias de su fa-

milia durante una semana. Identifique los momentos en los que la actividad física podría aumentar. Incremente las actividades en la rutina familiar cada semana. Aquí tiene algunas ideas para empezar: • Elija una actividad física divertida en lugar de la televisión. A los niños les encantan los juegos en donde tienen que perseguir a sus amigos y en especial a sus padres, haciendo que el ritmo cardiaco de todos aumente. • Construya un jardín fami­liar. Prepare la tierra para que pueda plantar flores y vegetales. Si no tiene mucho espacio en su jardín, utilice macetas. Cultivar vegetales y hierbas es una buena manera de aho­rrar dinero y es una fuente de bocadi­llos y alimentos saludables durante el verano. • Recuerde su niñez. Comparta con sus hijos al-

gunos juegos de su niñez, por ejemplo rayuela o mundo, en donde los niños saltan en un pie atravesando una serie de niveles. Utilice tizas de colores para dibujar sobre la acera, es una manera colo­rida y divertida para que ellos crean su propio espacio para jugar. • Organice una búsqueda del tesoro al aire libre. Utilice redes pequeñas y frascos para que los niños atrapen mariposas e insectos interesantes, y busque flores en el vecindario o parque local. • Ayude a sus hijos a organizar un partido de fútbol o béisbol con sus amigos. Colabore llevando bocadillos y bebidas saludables para que la energía de todos se mantenga durante el juego. Comenzar con pasatiempos sencillos puede hacer que su familia sea más activa. Además, éstos pequeños cambios pueden ayudar a que su familia mantenga un peso saludable.

Ocurren cientos de lesiones en las festividades del 4 de Julio, no seas uno de ellos HISPANIC WIRE WASHINGTON

Se exhorta a los consumidores que decidan comprar fuegos artificiales legales que tomen las siguientes medidas de seguridad:

• Compruebe que esos fuegos artificiales son legales en su zona antes de comprarlos o de usarlos. • Nunca permita a niños pequeños encender o jugar con fuegos artificiales. Al-

gunos padres pueden desconocer que muchos niños pequeños sufren lesiones ocasionadas por las estrellitas o luces de bengala. • Siempre debe haber un adulto supervisando de cerca las actividades con fuegos artificiales, si se permite a niños mayores manejar los dispositivos. • Evite comprar fuegos artificiales empaquetados en papel de estraza porque a menudo es una señal que dichos fuegos artificiales fueron fabricados para exhibiciones profesionales y podrían ser un peligro para los consumidores. • Nunca ponga ninguna parte de su cuerpo directamente sobre un dispositivo de fuegos artificiales mientras enciende la mecha. Retroceda hasta una distancia segura inmediatamente después de encender fuegos artificiales.

• Tenga a la mano un cubo de agua o una manguera en caso de incendio u otro imprevisto. • Nunca trate de encender de nuevo o manejar fuegos artificiales que no funcionan bien. Empápelos con agua y deséchelos. • Nunca apunte o lance fuegos artificiales hacia otra persona. • Encienda los fuegos artificiales uno a la vez, y después retroceda rápidamente. • Nunca lleve fuegos artificiales en un bolsillo ni los dispare en contenedores de metal o cristal. • Después que el fuego artificial se haya consumido por completo, rocíe los dispositivos con una gran cantidad de agua de un cubo o de una manguera antes de desecharlos, para evitar un fuego en la basura.

Firework Safety For The Fourth This Fourth of July, fireworks will blast overhead across the country to celebrate our nation’s birth. But with the festivities come safety hazards that amateur pyrotechnicians should consider. There are nearly 9,000 emergency room-treated injuries associated with fireworks a year, according to the U.S. Consumer Product and Safety Commission.

• Abide by local and state laws.

So before you light that fuse, keep these tips from the Red Cross in mind:

• Light only one firework at a time and never attempt to relight “a dud.”

• Store fireworks in a cool, dry place away from children and pets. • Keep a supply of water close-by as a precaution. • Make sure the person lighting fireworks always wears eye protection.

Samuel Merritt University expanding its nursing program with scholarship support which they do all of their science foundation classes and clinical practicums. In this program, the university also accepts juniors from community colleges. “We have very solid clinical experiences,” said Marquez. “We’re located in an area in which we have Alta Bates (Summit Medical Center), we have Sutter hospital, and we’re close to Kaiser Hospital. So it’s really convenient for students to have clinicals in different areas.”

In today’s uncertain economy, the health field is probably a good choice. As long as there are people, there will be a need for care providers. Samuel Merritt University has been providing registered nurses in California since the early 1900’s. To keep up with modern times, there are two undergraduate degrees available in nursing. There’s an accelerated Bachelor of Science program and a more traditional way of getting the same degree. The accelerated program is for perspective students who have a prior bachelor’s degree in any subject. The student has already got their general education courses out of the way. The next step would be to take the prerequisite courses for science and foundation courses.

“So this program requires students to have a bachelor’s degree. They apply and once they get accepted, they are in this program, which is 12 months and what they do is they go strictly into the health sciences courses, related to nursing,” said Lily Marquez, who works in the financial aid office. The university also offers the traditional route of earning a bachelor’s degree in nursing sciences. They have four sister schools that include St. Mary’s College of California, Mills College, Holy Names University, and Notre Dame de Namur University. Students have the opportunity to attend the institution of their choice to complete three years of general education courses. If they have at least a 3.0 GPA with a good academic standing, they will be guaranteed admission into the university for the next two years, during

Samuel Merritt University also has a simulation lab and dummies that can breathe. Sometimes, students practice on each other and eventually deal with real patients. During the clinical experience, they’re charting and getting evaluated while building relationships with the hospital staff. “Once students prepare to take the test and they successfully pass it, then they become licensed registered nurses,” said Marquez Samuel Merritt University is changing their institutional scholarship criteria. They look to increase their numbers with inclusive diversity. They have been able to secure a $100,000 grant through the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to support students. “It’s rare that students have a hard time securing funding for their tuition, but for the most part, we’re able to give students a combination of federal, state and institutional dollars for their tuition and fees,” said Marquez. “Our default rate is zero, so students who have borrowed federal loans, end up paying them back and not a lot of colleges and universities can say that.” For more information visit: www.samuelmerritt.edu

All Seasons Essentials Juan Carlos Miranda Special to El Observador

There is no doubt the latest in fashion trends are some of the hottest this summer season. However you don’t have to switch your entire closet to stay in trend. First let’s talk closet. Not the one people come out of but the one storing all your precious and valuable clothes. There are certain things that are a ‘must’ for every girl, staples to keep in your closet at all times since these can go from season to season saving you big bucks. The first item on the list is something so simple you wouldn’t think of it as a staple. I’m talking about the basic tank. Most of the times this simple, versatile piece of clothing gets understated because of its simplicity and effortless-

ness. However they can be fabulous as well. Tanks are ideal for hot summer days because they can go from a day at the beach to a drink at the bar. The key is how, and with what, you pair it. DO THIS: Pair that plain white tank with some cutoff jean shorts and some sandals for a day look; add some oversized glasses and your favorite beach bag for a day out in Santa Cruz. Later kick off the sandals and trade them for some cute peep-toe chunky heels, a chunky coral necklace, and a summer bag and you are ready to hit the scene. Jeans are one of the only pieces of garments that can be worn in every season so it is no surprise they should be included in this list. You can wear your favorite pair with almost everything, from a plain

white tee to a flowy, flowery top for added comfort. DO THIS: Pair your favorite skinny jeans with some cork, strappy wedges and a flowy, bold colored top for a day look. Go into night by changing into your favorite platform heels—I would go for the red ones—and add a light jacket and a clutch for a dinner with the girls. The infamous leggings made the cut for this list as well. They are relaxed, comfortable, cool, and effortless and these too can be paired with almost everything. They can go from a casual, running around town doing errands day, to a night summer concert with your man. The best part about leggings is that they fit every shape and size and there are lots of colors and patterns to choose from.

DO THIS: Choose a bold color or pattern for your leggings and pair them with some basic ballet flats and a basic graphic tee, add a fedora with some cool aviators for that chic day look. Transform into a sultry diva at night by ditching the hat and shoes and adding some open toe booties, or strappy heels, and a cropped leather jacket for that rocker look. Next, let’s talk tunics.

There are a whole bunch of styles and colors and they can be fun and comfortable to wear. They can be layered with other pieces of clothes or they can just be worn with some jeans and sandals. DO THIS: Pair your flowy tunic with some white jeans and gladiator sandals for a bohemian style; kick it up a notch by adding an oversized summer hat. Go from day to night by putting

on some color block pumps and getting rid of the hat and you’ll be sure to turn heads. The criteria to make the list was in part due to the garments’ versatility to be worn with other items and wide range of affordability and fit for everyone, as well as the ability to go from season to season. Although there are a number of items that could be included, these are just some of the basics.

Bringing Treatment For Eye Wrinkles Into Focus NAPSI

When women worry about wrinkles, they worry about wrinkles around the eyes. That’s a key finding of a recent survey conducted by Kelton Research. About half of women are most worried their eyes. To help, dermatologist Dr. Ava Shamban answers a few common questions about eye wrinkles. Q: What causes fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes? A: Fine lines and wrinkles form due to a breakdown in collagen and elastin—the skin’s support structure. Repeated movements, sun damage, smok-

ing and, of course, natural aging can all cause wrinkles.

kles. Is there anything else I can do at home?

Q: What options do dermatologists offer to reduce the appearance of crow’s-feet?

A: Eye creams work primarily on the skin’s surface, so they can’t really get at the source of the problem—the breakdown of the collagen and elastin.

A: Dermatologists offer many options such as injectables, which replace lost volume and restore youthful contours to the skin to smooth away wrinkles and folds. Another option is microdermabrasion and chemical peels, which remove the outer layer of skin. And, for longer-lasting results, many patients opt for nonablative fractional laser treatments, which can be very effective. Q: I’ve tried every eye cream but can’t seem to get rid of my wrin-

Q: What’s the difference between an athome laser and in-office laser treatments? A: The PaloVia laser uses the same fractional laser technology that I use on my patients in my office, but it’s been adapted and FDA cleared for use at home. A laser at a dermatologist’s office is going to be more powerful, but they can both deliver similar results over time.

Being a professional writer has been C. Toni Graham’s dream since she was a small child, but it wasn’t until May of last year that she decided to leave her job as a corporate Senior Vice President and pursue her passion for writing children’s books. Her first published book is called ‘Gabby Giggles’. “As a child I learned to read at a very early age and became fascinated with books and the adven-

tures that would stimulate my imagination. My belief is this early exposure to books led me to have a desire to write,” Graham says. “When creating my own stories, I find that it is an outlet for releasing my sometimes offbeat since of humor, and it is also a great way to express my vision of the world we live in. I love to write fantasy stories because it is without boundaries and it is limitless.” ‘Gabby Giggles’ is the story of a girl who loves to giggle. Then one day, she’s happily skipping along— giggling of course—when she suddenly steps on a thorn! A very friendly bullfrog, which just so happens to specialize in feet, comes to the rescue.

años pueden identificar más a personajes de caricaturas que a los animales salvajes. - Cuando los niños experimentan la vida silvestre de primera mano, pueden entender mejor porque la conservación es importante y como las acciones de los estados sin litoral pueden ayudar o dañar al medio ambiente. Sin importar donde viva o vaya a vacacionar, existen varias oportunidades para que los niños vean por ejemplo, las tortugas marinas. Las tortugas marinas son fácilmente accesibles. Los niños en Estados litorales pueden verlas en los acuarios, mientras que los niños con acceso a las costas pueden ver las tortugas en las afueras. Las tortugas femeninas entran en trance cuando están poniendo sus huevos, así que bajo la supervisión de un guardabosque, los niños se pueden acercar a unos cuantos pies de la tortuga marina.

Graham is currently working on a fantasy novel that is going through the process of being published. It will be the first of three books that will be released in the series. “The story is a modern day saga of four young teens that find themselves trapped in another realm–“The Otherworld”, where they must abide by an evil druid’s bidding or risk endangering the lives of their loved ones and the magical beings they have befriended,” Graham says. “The title of the

first book in the series trilogy is ‘Crossroads and the Himalayan Crystals’ and it should be released this fall.” Graham has moved into the phase of touring various bookstores and other venues. Graham is scheduled to be at the Oakridge Mall on Saturday July 28th at 1:00 PM for a book reading and signing at BookSmart Kids. The special event will be an opportunity for kids to get the book and hear her read it aloud. There will be free giveaways and photo opportunities with “Gabby”. Graham is also scheduled for a special reading event, followed by a signing, at Barnes and Noble on August 18, 2012 at 1:00 PM. The store is located at 3600 Stevens Creek Blvd in San Jose.

“Me gusta el tema ´Aceitunas´, pero también me fascina la letra de ´Lo que no fue, no será´, interpretada en su momento por José María Napoleón, pero también me enamoré del tema “No vale la pena´ de Juan Gabriel y ´Los hombres no deben llorar”, que llevará al éxito a King clave”.

La primera consola de tercera generación y la manzana Luis Alba El Observador

En el pasado E3 se presento la primera consola de tercera generación. La cual lleva por nombre Wii U y es de la marca Nintendo. Esta vez la compañía se encarga de traernos una nueva consola con un nuevo modo de juego ya que cuenta con dos pantallas tu televisión y el nuevo control llamado Mii Pad. Y estas pensado que vas a tener que comprar todos tus accesorios otra vez y tus juegos no servirán con esta nueva consola, no es así ya que tus controles del Nintendo Wii son compatibles con

este sistema lo cual, significa que usan el mismo sensor.

Lo único malo es que todavía no tienen fecha de lanzamiento y ni precio al mercado por lo cual no sabemos cuánto tiempo debemos esperar para poder jugar en la comodidad de nuestros hogares.

Una de las mejorías que tiene esta consola es que cuenta con puertos HDMI los cuales ocupamos para conectar a la tele poder tener imagen en alta definición. Otra mejora es el Miiverse el cual te permitirá hacer conversación en tiempo real con los Mii’s que estén cerca de ti en tu cuarto de platicas.

Esta semana me toco jugar con el el nuevo Wii U en un lugar secreto en la ciudad de San Francisco California. La verdad el Mii Pad antes de cargarlo me pareció que estaría pesado pero no fue así es casi el mismo peso

Por cuestiones de tiempo pude jugar dos juegos Luigi’s Mansion y Súper Mario Bros Wii U. En este segundo la versión demostración tiene unos trajes algo raros ya que nunca me imagine ver a Mario vestido de ardilla.

Por otro lado Apple lanza esta semana la nueva versión

de Siri el cual habla español está disponible para iPhone 3G, iPhone 4, y iPhone 4s así como también para iPad. También revelo su nueva línea de computadoras MacBook Pro y las MacBook Air, así como la ya famosa MacBook Pro con retina display. Lo cual hace una

El sueldo de Kaká le impide regresar al Milan Notimex Roma

El elevado costo que representa el sueldo del brasileño Ricardo Izecson dos Santos “Kaká” impediría que regrese al AC Milan de Italia, aseguró el administrador delegado del equipo, Adriano Galliani. Según versiones que circularon, el regreso de Kaká a la entidad italiana podría darse pero Galliani lo descartó. El mediocampista, uno de los mejores pagados en Real Madrid, gana una cantidad imposible de costear en el cuadro “rossonero”. “Kaká no volverá al Milan al cien por cien. Tiene un sueldo que nos resulta imposible de asumir”, manifestó el directivo.

Agregó que el jugador surgido del Sao Paulo de su país, de quien se menciona también interesa al París Saint-Germain, podría dejar al cuadro madridista “pero no ir a Italia, donde costaría el doble”. Por otra parte y sobre el supuesto interés de Real Madrid por el ghanés Kevin-Prince Boateng, Galliani aseguró que “son especulaciones de los medios de comunicación”, pues nadie ha preguntado por el mediocampista. Finalmente sobre la información que menciona la probable salida del delantero brasileño Robson de Souza “Robinho” para fichar por el Málaga de España, dejó en claro que “no hay nada oficial por el momento”.
