Editorial, New York Times, December 29, 2013

recessions, dating back to 1958, Congress has never let Federal benefits expire when the need has been as great as it is today. And for good reason. Prematurely ending benefits inflicts needless harm to families---the average benefits is about $270 a week---as well as avoidable damage to the economy by denting essential spending.

Federal unemployment benefits expire while Congress enjoys a holiday. The House Republicans who refused to renew expiring Federal jobless benefits before leaving for an extended Christmas break have shown no inclination to revisit the issue when they return to work in January. This is unconscionable. In each of the previous seven major

The expiration of the Federal benefit program this (December 27th) weekend means that 1.3 million people (230,000 in California) who have been receiving assistance will be cut off this week. In the first half of 2014, another estimated 1.9 million people who would otherwise have qualified for federal benefits will find that there

Hace pocos días la publicación de dos estudios particulares dejo a más de uno aburrido y a los demás confundidos. De acuerdo con los citados estudios los suplementos vitamínicos, no sirven para nada. Investigadores de la universidad de Warwick señalaron que introducir suplementos en la dieta de adultos bien nutridos no aporta ningún beneficio en particular e incluso puede ser dañino para sus organismos. En otras palabras lo que encontraron los catedráticos es que gastar el dinero en las dichosas vitaminas es lo mismo que tirarlo a la basura. Supongo que el tema es discutible, pero el concepto de los científicos de Warwick fue respaldado por los de la prestigiosa escuela Johns Hopkins de Medicina de Baltimore, que afirmaron a su vez que “desde la industria farmacéutica se alimenta la ansiedad ante «falsos problemas de sa-

Así las cosas, la recomendación de los expertos vuelve a caer en una alimentación balanceada que incluya las proteínas y nutrientes que necesita nuestro organismo y excluya las grasas, azucares y químicos en exceso que lo pueden deteriorar. De acuerdo con los Institutos Nacionales de Salud -NIH- más de la mitad de los estadounidenses consumen uno o más suplementos dietéticos diaria u ocasionalmente. Estos suplementos están a la disposición del público en tiendas de abarrotes, supermercados y farmacias y para

is no federal program to turn to. By the second half of 2014, that tally will rise by another 1.6 million people. (Total: 4.8 million unemployed people) There is a common perception that renewing federal benefits means providing jobless aid indefinitely. That is not how it works. Federal benefits kick in when state benefits run out, generally after 26 weeks. The duration of federal benefits depends mainly on state jobless rates. In most states, federal benefits last for either 14 weeks, or 20 to 28 weeks. Recently, the average duration was 29 weeks, a figure that is elevated by states with very high joblessnes. Illinois, Nevada, Rhode Island, for ex-

obtenerlos no es necesario portar una prescripción médica. Lo que significa que la responsabilidad de su consumo recae casi totalmente en el consumidor. Así que a la hora de optar por el consumo de uno de estos suplementos vitamínicos, la recomendación es que al menos se asegure de que no sea nocivo para su salud. No lo consuma  si en realidad no tiene necesidad de hacerlo. Muchas personas en Estados Unidos, por ejemplo, tienen carencia de vitamina D. Las mujeres necesitan hierro durante el embarazo y el consumo de ácido fólico es fundamental para todas aquellas en edad de concebir. Si es su caso, discútalo con su doctor y decida con él cual es la mejor opción. Recuerde que los suplementos también pueden tener efectos secundarios, especialmente si se consumen con otras medicinas o si existen ciertas condiciones de salud. “Usted tiene que discutir con su médico que suplementos está tomando de modo que

ample, qualify for the federal maximum of up to 47 weeks. Another misperception is that ending benefits will help to end unemployment. In that scenario, Republicans see themselves practicing tough love, jolting dependents into finding jobs. That is also not how it works. Long-term unemployment is high because there are not enough jobs, not because millions of Americans have suddenly lost their work ethic. At last count, there were nearly three unemployed people for every job opening; in a healthy economy, the ratio is about one to one (1:1 not 3:1). At last count, the average spell of unemployment was 37.2 weeks, nealy 20 weeks longer than the pre-

recession level. And as demonstrated in North Carolina, which has cut state jobless benefits and effectively rejected federal benefits, slashing aid has not led to more jobs, but to despair. Congressional Democrats and some Republicans have said they will try to reinstate federal jobless benefits when Congress returns. If they don’t succeed, miserliness will be the prevailing public policy. EO Publisher’s comment: Recommend that registered voters keep track of their local members of the U.S. Congress, whether Democrat, Republican or Independent--who have voted against the Federal jobless benefit pro-

And plan to vote on Primary Election Day, Tuesday, June 3, 2014 because your individual vote, when aggregated with all others, will defeat the influence of special interests (‘Big Money’) in any election.

RECIPE / HEALTH

Prevent Car Theft and Burglary Having your car stolen or things stolen from your car can be a very stressful experience. With these few prevention tips, you can help reduce your chances of becoming a victim of these crimes. First and foremost, always keep your car locked while you are at any public place including the gas station, the coffee shop, the grocery store, etc. Secondly, park close to other vehicles in parking lots and in well lit areas to lessen the chance of being a target. Third, NEVER leave your car running while it is unattended or unlocked. No warming up the car in the driveway! Fourth, keep all valuables out of sight or lock them in the trunk. No purse, wallet, cell phone, laptop, GPS should be visible. Finally, if you discover that you are a victim of vehicle theft or burglary, call the SJPD from home/ work, 911. If you use your cell phone, call 408-277-8911. If your car is stolen, the police need the following information: •The year, make, model, color and license plate number. •VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) this is on the registration which you should not keep in the car. Keep a copy in your purse/wallet and the original at home. •When and where the theft occurred. •Descriptions of anyone seen loitering around the car before it was stolen. •Names of witnesses. Remember, burglary and thefts are crimes of opportunity so do what you can not to attract a burglar’s attention. For more information or tips, visit our website at www.sjpd.org.

Bored with your everyday cooking? This New Year, resolve to give your meals an exuberant makeover. You won’t even need to look across an ocean for bold flavor inspiration from other cuisines. You can start at home, say experts.

• Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a sauté pan large enough to hold the chops without crowding. Sprinkle the chops on both sides with salt and pepper. Add them to the pan and sauté until browned on both sides, about 4 minutes per side. • Add the scallions, cola and anise seeds to the pan and continue cooking, turning three times until almost all the liquid disappears and the chops are glazed on both sides and still pink in the centers, about 8 minutes altogether.

Try this recipe for “Lamb Chops with Scallions in Cola Glaze,”:

INGREDIENTS

• To serve, arrange the chops on a platter; heap the scallions on top and pour the remaining pan juices over all. Serve right away.

• 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil • 8 lamb shoulder or sirloin chops • Kosher or fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper • 6 bunches scallions, white and light green parts only, cut lengthwise into thin strips • 1 1/2 cups regular Coca-Cola or Pepsi-Cola • 3 teaspoons anise seeds

As always, the most common New Year’s Resolution is to lose weight. And while trimming that waistline may seem a solo job, the truth is that family and friends can have an enormous influence on the success or failure of someone’s weight loss efforts.

If you’re trying to help someone you care about lose weight, here are some things NOT to do: 1. Don’t be the food police.

2. Don’t buy exercise equipment or point out new diets. 3. Don’t cite health risks of being overweight, or seek constant weight loss updates. 4. Don’t try to deprive the person of favorite foods. 5. Don’t tell the person that weight loss is easy and just a matter of willpower.

Such actions send destructive messages which re-enforce the person’s negative feelings that something is wrong with them unless they lose weight. The result can be additional eating as a way to temporarily overcome those negative feelings. Instead, try practicing positive behaviors that can help the weight loss effort: 1. Encourage the person trying to lose weight to express feelings, especially negative ones that may be triggering over-eating. 2. Offer ongoing encouragement, not about weight loss but about the person in general. Give sincere, honest, positive messages. Negative feelings that trigger eating are often tied to low selfesteem and being unhappy with one’s appearance and life. Find areas of the person’s actions, personality and appearance where you can offer positive support. 3. Help the person refocus on what may be the real

problem. Weight gain is often a reaction to issues such as relationship problems, a bad work situation, a family loss or other major concerns. Remind the person that we all eat when stressed because food does make us feel temporarily better. Helping identify stress sources can minimize that need to feel better with food. 4. Be a positive model. This doesn’t mean you have to diet yourself, but rather that you set an example, without lecturing, by making healthy, sensible food choices. Similarly, start or continue exercising and invite the person you wish to help to join you. Make it a positive experience. Losing weight is never easy, especially when there are problems and stresses that helped trigger the weight gain. But being someone who truly understands the problem and is willing to care and listen, rather than lecture about weight, can go a long way in helping promote weight loss.

SJR 6 urged passage of Senator Barbara Boxer’s LINE Act, which requires local governments beset by excessive lines at polling places to modernize their systems so as to increase access to our elections. SJR 13 called for the restoration of the F-3

and F-4 Visa categories in the Federal Immigration Reform Bill so as to allow families to be reunited. SJR 14 demanded the restoration of the Voting Rights Act to prevent discrimination in elections. SR 8 called upon Congress to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act. In addition, SCR 66 declared September 19th to be Online Voter Registration Day in the State of California. SCR 20 designates October 20 as Leyte Landing Commemoration Day to recognize the landing of the United States military on the Philippine island of Leyte on October 20, 1944. Since entering the legislature in 2003, Yee has now successfully passed 181 pieces of legislation, with 133 of them chaptered into law.

Armando Pereda NOTIMEX Las redes sociales se convirtieron en los medios de promoción para exponentes musicales -nuevos y consagrados-, en dónde mostrar sus nuevas producciones, ante la ausencia de emisiones televisivas que les permitan darlas a conocer. En México han existido diversos programas que fueron la principal plataforma para proyectar las canciones que más tarde se convirtieron en un “hit”, haciendo crecer a la industria discográfica hace casi dos décadas. Tras la desaparición de emisiones como “Siempre en domingo” (1969-2008), de Raúl Velasco, en donde se dio oportunidad a nuevos ta-

lentos y promovió a un gran número de estrellas, en la actualidad no existen programas en la pantalla chica que repitan la fórmula. Es así que las redes sociales como Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, así como YouTube son ahora las herramientas eficientes y gratuitas que han ayudado a las celebridades a estar presentes en todo momento con sus seguidores. Aunado a ello, las ahora denominadas tiendas virtuales dan cabida a las expresiones musicales más diversas, pero con un costo económico para los amantes de éstas. En un sondeo realizado por Notimex al respecto, diversos exponentes nacionales y extranjeros externan su opinión.   Para Estrella, ex integrante de la primera generación de “La academia”, “en el programa ?Siempre en domingo? ya eran artistas hechos, no estaban concursando, era un espacio para mostrar su música y promocionarla como lo

JANUARY 3 - 9, 2014 hicieron con el grupo Flans que primero mostró un tema y luego otro, y a los tres meses le permitió estar vigente durante un largo tiempo. “Los espacios musicales en televisión son muy importantes para nosotros, que a falta de ellos no te permite llegar al público; al final de cuentas ?La academia? fue algo así, una plataforma que permitió la exposición constante que nos sirvió mucho”, expresó la intérprete, quien lanzó recientemente su disco “Contigo gano”.   En opinión de Paty Cantú, es más fácil para los cantantes promover la música con las redes sociales, “en realidad se tiene la opción de enseñar quién eres inmediatamente, qué es lo que estás haciendo y compartirlo de forma inmediata con la gente a diferencia de antaño.“Esto es algo que no desaprovechamos y agradecemos. El hecho de que haya menos espacios para hacer música sólo nos obliga a nosotros como artistas

a ponernos la barra mucho más alta, para que cuando tengamos esos espacios, hacerlo con todo el respeto del mundo en el escenario y ganarnos a la gente”, dijo la intérprete. Al respecto, Wisin comentó: “Pienso que nosotros como artistas tenemos que alinearnos con la tecnología y con lo que está sucediendo, tenemos las redes cibernéticas, que son un diario, donde todos los días la gente sabe lo que estamos haciendo, de una forma más íntima”.   Añadió que los programas musicales han cambiado con el tiempo, ya que antes los cantantes promovían sus nuevos proyectos que tenían en puerta, ahora abundan los “reality shows”, cuyo objetivo es poner a competir a los nuevos talentos.   Cualquier foro de televisión que presente música, siempre será estimulante para quienes trabajen en esto, consideró Richie Arreola, integrante de Belanova, “es una lástima que cada vez existan menos programas en televisión abierta, porque de paga sí los hay, pero no todos tienen oportunidad de disfrutarla.   Para Yahir, cantante sonorense egresado de la primera generación de “La academia”, otra forma que tienen los cantantes de exponer y vender su música es a través de las descargas digitales, por lo que mencionó que la gente debería de aprender a escuchar temas de calidad.   “La cuestión no es nada más que la bajen gratis, también tiene mucho que ver la fidelidad, aprender a escuchar música de calidad, no conformarse con cualquier cosa que se dé.   “Esperemos que en un momento de la vida la gente entienda que hay que comprar y aportar a toda esa gente que son millones de artistas los que quieren exponer su sentimiento en un disco, en una canción”, señaló el cantante, quien está en promoción de su disco “Zona preferente”.

El nuevo Pontífice es un ser elevado cuya misión en esta encarnación es crear cambios evolutivos necesarios para mejorar todo lo instaurado por el Vaticano y abrir puertas a creyentes que de cierto modo han sido aislados por el catolicismo debido a sus preferencias sexuales, divorcios y otro tipo de situaciones que en nada tienen que ver con la fe que sienten en su corazón.

Por supuesto el tema del aborto será quizá el eslabón más difícil de resolver pues las opiniones están sumamente divididas y nunca se podrá llegar a un consenso de sí debe o no ser permitido por la iglesia.

nadie. Según las profecías es él, la persona que tiene en sus manos el destino de la iglesia católica. Su deseo es renovar, ampliar los horizontes y desechar dictámenes medievales como por ejemplo la castidad de los sacerdotes(situación poco creíble a estas alturas de nuestra civilización, una castidad además de poco creíble, casi inexistente y hasta absurda) Ojalá los poderosos del Vaticano le permitan a él realizar todos esos cambios que él sabe necesarios para que exista una renovada fe en el catolicismo y evitar que muchos fieles busquen otras iglesias y otras creencias espirituales porque se han decepcionado del catolicismo. Ya es tiempo que a los curas les dejen casarse, el hecho que se enamoren y puedan tener familia en nada afectaría su misión de guías espirituales, al contrario; serían más felices

y con esa buena energía podrían ayudar a más personas. Si Jesucristo fue casto de principio a fin, es Él, el hijo de Dios, el Mesías, nadie debe compararse con Él pues es un Ser puro, celestial e inmaculado. Los sacerdotes y las monjas son humanos, simples mortales, ya es tiempo que dejen de vivir sus romances a la sombra del pecado. El Papa Francisco es una bendición para el catolicismo, es el Papa esperado por las profecías, el que creará los grandes cambios, el que hará resurgir a la iglesia, quién de alguna manera traerá alivio a tanta crueldad e injusticia a lo largo de la historia de la religión católica: Inquisición, la barbarie de la conquista del nuevo mundo, pedofilia, racismo, esclavitud y lujo desmedido, etc. En sus manos reposa el futuro del Vaticano, sus 800 millones de fieles y sus más de dos mil años de existencia.
