Mosquitoes Infected with West Nile Virus Found in Areas of San José and Campbell / The Santa Clara County Vector Control District (SCCVCD) confirmed on June 21 that adult mosquitoes collected from the 95125, 95126, and 95128 ZIP code areas of the cities of San José and a small portion of the city of Campbell tested positive for West Nile virus (WNV).  The detection of mosquitoes infected with WNV has prompted the scheduling of a mosquito fogging treatment in the surrounding area, in an effort to prevent human cases of WNV.  Weather permitting; the ground fogging is scheduled for Thursday, June 26, at 11:00 p.m., and is planned to last for several hours. The zone is centered at Fruitdale Avenue and Leigh Avenue. Restaurants Prepare for New Foam Food Container Ban / San José’s Foam Food Container Ordinance bans food containers made from EPS, a product similar to Styrofoam™, with the ordinance in effect at multi-state restaurant chains since January 1, 2014, and in effect at all other San José restaurants, including mobile and street vendors. The EPS Ordinance was approved by San José City Council on August 27, 2013. The goal of the ordinance is to protect water quality and wildlife by prohibiting the use of EPS foam food containers that are a common source of litter in streets and waterways. California makes an official call for a U.S. Constitutional Convention to overturn Citizens United / The State Senate passed AJR 1, making California the second state in the union to officially call for an Article V constitutional convention for the sole purpose of passing a United States constitutional amendment that would effectively overturn Citizens United v. FEC and limit the corrupting influence of money in our electoral process. After passing the State Assembly earlier this year 51 to 20, AJR 1 passed the State Senate 23 to 11 with thunderous applause from the gallery. Because it’s a joint resolution, it takes effect immediately without the signature of Governor Brown. Disfrute del sol con cuidado Cualquier persona puede padecer cáncer de piel / Siempre que pueda, evite exponerse al sol, especialmente entre las 10 a.m. y las 4 p.m., cuando los rayos del sol son más fuertes. Si trabaja o juega al aire libre, use ropa que cubra sus brazos y piernas; un sombrero que cubra su rostro y orejas; y lentes para el sol que filtren los rayos ultravioleta para protegerse los ojos. Use crema con filtro solar que tenga un factor de protección (FSP) de 30 o más. Use productos de protección solar cuya etiqueta indique que son de “amplio espectro” (“broad spectrum” en inglés) y que pueden filtrar tanto los rayos ultravioleta A como los rayos ultravioleta B. No use camas solares ni cabinas de bronceado o lámparas solares, porque también estas máquinas emiten rayos ultravioleta.

PLAN YOUR EDUCATION FINANCES Let’s first congratulate those recent high school graduates who just received their high school diploma. Many, including those having low incomes, are planning to finance their continuing education with ‘student loans’ to augment family funds and scholarship awards. Currently an estimated 44 million individuals used student loans to pay for their education. Student loan debt amounts to $1.2 trillion which exceeds national credit card debt. Therefore , it is important that an individual aspiring to attend college realize that he/she needs a customized educational business plan. The objective of that plan is to ‘know before your owe”, as well as to define costs of acquiring the knowledge and skills of your future chosen profession. It is especially important for low-income families to encourage their kids to accept that they are ‘in business’. It is in their personal best interest to do the comprehensive 5 year plan projections required. This planning effort will assist in identifying options having lower costs. One such option is to attend a local community college for the first two years (@ $6,000 per year) prior to transferring to a university costing much more. Today, this does not happen often because high school career counsel-

Luisa Fernanda Montero LA RED HISPANA Lo que se sabe, es que el hombre, Isidro García, secuestró a la hija de su novia, es decir a su hijastra y se la llevo para abusar de ella física y sexualmente, como Pedro por su casa. A Isidro la vida le sonreía; una vez harto de intimar con su novia mexicana, decide cambiar de presa y quedarse con la adolescente de 15 años a quien envuelve y traumatiza con suma facilidad, y no pasa nada. Isidro no tuvo que esforzarse demasiado, cometió sus actos delictivos a la vista de todo el mundo, de tal suerte que hoy, los vecinos que lo vieron llevar una vida de pareja “muy normal” con la víctima, no salen de su asombro. Isidro García, es un inmigrante originario de Morelos,

ing was reduced or eliminated due to school budget shortfalls. Also, it is not always necessary to attend an elite prestigious university because the same knowledge can be had at lower cost public institutions. Future employers are more interested in your ability ‘’to perform’ rather than the prestigious degree you have earned at a higher cost. Another option is to devise your own personal ‘work-study’ plan which would enable you to earn your professional degree over seven years on a ‘Pay as you go’ basis. Many promising careers can be accessed in this manner. Check out professional associations and unions for their internship programs and paid apprenticeships (electricians, plumbers, carpenters, & construction trades). In the bio-medical field there now exists many careers which did not exist 20 years ago. Examples are Renal Dialysis Technologists; Biomedical Electronic engineering; Human geneticists, etc. Youth need to be encouraged to google information about any career online. Also know that some educational programs are online already free. One such highly regarded effort is the Kahn Academy which presents online programs which teach mathematics, physics, and other academic instructional programs.

México, que a diferencia de los millones de inmigrantes que pasan los días trabajando honestamente y esperando que la buena providencia les dé la oportunidad de hacerlo legalmente, hizo lo que quiso con el sistema. El desorden, la injusticia y el absurdo que rigen las leyes migratorias estadounidenses jugaron a favor de este hombre, que usó el sin sentido del sistema para manipular a su antojo la voluntad de una menor de edad. Según los cargos presentados en Santa Ana, California Isidro García asaltó sexualmente a la víctima en repetidas ocasiones, tras haberla raptado de la casa de su madre en el 2004; en un comienzo las drogas y el encierro fueron fundamentales, pero con el tiempo, al hábil secuestrador le fue suficiente con la manipulación y el lavado de cerebro. Está claro que no le fue

El sistema es tan ineficiente que llega a ser ridículo. En Estados Unidos hombres como Mario Hernández sirven en las Fuerzas Armadas durante la guerra de Viet-

Many high school students have been encouraged to go on to college after their high school graduation. Too many students , from families who have modest incomes and no prior college attendance experience, have been encouraged to consider attending a university ‘even if you have to borrow the money’ because ‘student loans’ are available. Many of these student loan debts were acquired without adequate prior planning nor knowledge of the ‘payback requirements’. Many of these loans were made by banks, at no risk, because of federal backup programs. Many jobs in business and commerce can be learned on the job. In California, a total of $103.4 billion in student loans is the debt burden that 4 million former students bear. This amounts to an average personal debt of $25,850 which may prevent a young person from buying a home or planning to start a family. Life altering decisions are impacted. Some economists are concerned that these student loans prevent individuals from fully participating in the local consumer economy, since monthly loan payments do not enter the consumer spending revenue stream. The U.S. Senate recently blocked legislation sponsored by Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-

nam, trabajan para el gobierno y votan en las elecciones, sin enterarse de que no son ciudadanos estadounidenses. A este distraído veterano la noticia le cayó como balde de agua fría cuando quiso hacerse de un pasaporte para irse de crucero.

Mass) which would have permitted refinancing existing student loans at lower interest rates (3.8%). Republican Senators rejected this proposed legislation because of the modest income tax increase for the wealthy. President Obama announced a plan to cap student loan repayment plans at 10% of the adjusted gross discretionary income per year. This ‘Pay As You Earn’ executive order plan forgives the loan after 20 years OR alternatively, after 10 years if the individual works for a nonprofit organization or is a public civil servant. To learn more go to ‘studentaid.ed.gov’. Carefully evaluate the ‘for-profit’ academies which exist today before you commit to their educational programs and their costs. Look into the ‘hiring rate’ of their graduates with their degrees and certificates. Before buying these programs, exercise your due diligence. Individuals who have acquired multidisciplinary knowledge have employment/career advantages. Adopt ‘Pay as you go’ so as to not be responsible for debts which enslave you by limiting your career choices. Your personal educational financial planning will really help you achieve without becoming severely indebted.

Mientras no se apruebe una reforma migratoria integral, lógica, justa y eficiente que le abra un camino a la ciudadanía a los más de doce millones de inmigrantes que viven y trabajan –honesta-

mente- en este país individuos como Isidro García podrán seguir haciendo de las suyas, burlándose de un sistema inservible y victimizando inocentes, sin que pase nada.

New Driving Licenses Scams targeting the Immigrant Community The San José Police Department wants to warn the community on scams targeting victims that want to obtain a California driver license for non documented drivers. Several other states have issued driving licenses to the non documented drivers and now with the passing of AB 60, California will be issuing licenses. The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is not issuing licenses until Jan 1, 2015. 1. Some criminals are asking for up to $1,000 each person to obtain a legal license. 2. Beware of agents claiming that they can help you by paying a fee. Some criminals are posing as DMV personnel, and lawyers with licenses. These imposters are illegally charging for services and licenses. 3. Beware of false DMV websites or “How to get a California license” web pages.  The official website is www.dmv. ca.gov. 4. Criminals are selling false documents to prove birth dates, and residency to present to the Department Motor Vehicle Department. 5. If you are a victim or know of anyone who is criminally involved please call 911 or contact Crime Stoppers at 947-STOP.

Recognizing the need to fight blight in unincorporated areas of Santa Clara County, the Board of Supervisors on June 24, 2014, created a Graffiti Cleanup Program with the goal of having graffiti removed within 48 hours.    The unanimous vote came during the last meeting before the July recess on a recommendation by Supervisor Dave Cortese. At Cortese’s request, the board asked staff to set a goal of having graffiti cleaned up within 48 hours. The current rules give property owners 10 days to comply. “Ten days is a long time to keep graffiti up,” Cortese said. “We want to encourage property owners to get rid of it immediately.”The staff will also explore involving the public in volunteer

graffiti cleanup efforts. While the County has worked with property owners to paint out graffiti, there hasn’t been a program or resources focused on illegal tagging since 2008.  Revising the ordinance establishes the program and makes graffiti cleanup a priority.   “Graffiti has become a big problem in some of the County pockets,” said Cor-

tese, chair of the Housing, Land Use, Environment and Transportation Committee that approved the program proposal in May.  “Creating a program will help us enforce laws we already have and help us reach out to residents who are victims of this vandalism.”   The Graffiti Cleanup Program will be administered by the Planning and Devel-

opment Department and Code Enforcement Division. Besides overseeing graffiti removal and enforcement, the program will provide education to the community about how to prevent graffiti.

Knight Foundation and Houston Endowment support New Americans Campaign SAN FRANCISCO From New York to Houston from Miami to San Jose, Calif., green card holders will soon find it easier to become U.S. citizens. Today, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Houston Endowment announced their intent to fund the New Americans Campaign’s work in cities across the nation and help thousands of green card holders. Knight Foundation has awarded $1 million over two years to the campaign, and the Houston Endowment has granted $200,000 over two years. “This new support is critical for our local service providers who are on the ground and experimenting with new ways to make the citizenship pro-

cess easier,” said Eric Cohen, the executive director of the Immigrant Legal Resource Center in San Francisco, which is the lead organization for the New Americans Campaign. “Increased collaboration and innovation are key for modernizing the naturalization process in the U.S.” In the past two years, the New Americans Campaign has built a collaboration of more than 100 immigrant rights and service organizations to provide low-cost citizenship assistance for lawful permanent residents, also known as green card holders. The campaign has helped more than 100,000 green card holders complete their citizenship applications. The campaign’s new approaches include “mega workshops” in which hun-

dreds of volunteers collaborate to help applicants fill out citizenship applications. Other innovations involve using mobile apps to help green card holders prepare for the process and study for the English and civics exams. “Houston is a city that will continue to be built by immigrants, and integrating them as citizens is critical to our future,” said Claudia OrtegaHogue, Texas Director of Civic Engagement at the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund, the site leader for the Houston collaborative. “In the coming years, we hope to continue helping thousands of green card holders here in Houston become citizens.” “Our communities can only benefit when more of our

green card holders become citizens,” said Benjamin de la Peña, Director of Community and National Strategy at Knight Foundation. “New Americans are entrepreneurial and ready to engage. Streamlining the naturalization process is good for them and for our nation.” Knight Foundation’s grant will go to the Campaign’s local collaboratives in Detroit; Charlotte, N.C.; Miami; and San Jose, Calif., and the Houston Endowment Grant will support partners in the Houston collaboration. Supported activities include helping green card holders start the naturalization process, legal support with the citizenship application and help with overcoming financial barriers to citizenship.

Advocates unveil suggested improvements to DMV’s proposed regulations for immigrant licenses  SAN FRANCISCO LOS ANGELES Community members and members of the Drive CA Coalition released  recommendations at a news conference today urging the Department of Motor Vehicles’ (DMV) to improve proposed regulations that will make driver licenses for undocumented immigrants a reality under California’s AB 60: “The Safe and Responsible Driver Act.” The recommendations come in the lead-up to highly anticipated public hearings which the DMV will hold on the

regulations next week in both Los Angeles and Oakland. Participating organizations included ACLU of Northern California (ACLU-NC), the California Immigrant Policy Center (CIPC), California Immigrant Youth Justice Alliance (CIYJA), Presente.org, Services, Immigrant Rights, and Education Network (SIREN), TODEC Legal Center, and Mujeres Unidas y Activas.

Harumi Mass, staff attorney with the ACLU-NC.On Friday, May 9th, the DMV released proposed regulations outlining how the agency will verify applicant identity and California residency for the state’s new driver’s license law. It is expected that 1.5 million unauthorized immigrants in California will be eligible to become licensed and insured when the law comes into effect on January 1, 2015.

Advocates encouraged the DMV to make document requirements more accessible for eligible immigrants and to add privacy and antidiscrimination protections to ensure the program’s success. “We firmly believe that all Californians stand to benefit from a successful driver’s license program that meets community needs. And today we are asking the DMV to retool its proposed regulations to do just that,” stated Julia

Reshma Shamasunder, CIPC’s Executive Director stated, “In speaking with several service-providers and members of the community, we have found that the document requirements must be improved in order to accomplish our shared goal of ensuring that all Californians can become tested, licensed, and insured drivers.” Ms. Shamasunder and community members declared

that requiring both a foreign passport and a consular ID is prohibitively expensive and impossible for some, citing the cost of up to $128 per person for Mexican nationals. “In a place where $100 could be put towards groceries or childcare, having a passport is basically a luxury,” said Luis Nolasco  with the Justice for Immigrants Coalition of Inland Southern California. Other community members also shared concerns over the cost of obtaining various documents under DMV’s current proposal. “It would be a decision between paying for a passport or paying for shoes for my kids,” said Etelvina Lopez,  a domestic worker and member of Mujeres Unidas y Activas, who is a prospective AB 60 applicant. Addressing community calls to ensure that all applicants are protected from

discrimination, Sandy Valenciano, Northern California Coordinator with CIYJA, stated: “At the end of the day, it comes down to inspiring community members’ trust and providing them with assurance that they will not be treated differently than another driver if they get pulled over and show an AB 60 license. The draft regulations must reflect our belief that all people are created equal and should be protected from discrimination. It’s as simple as that.” Advocates also insisted that the DMV provide assurances that people’s information will be kept safe and secure. “After hosting a few meetings with community members and the DMV, it’s become clear to us that community members have very deep-rooted fears about being treated differently for having an AB 60 license and how their infor-

mation is going to be shared,” stated  Priya Murthy, Policy and Organizing Program Director with SIREN Bay Area. “There shouldn’t be a shadow of a doubt that California’s program will meet community needs when it comes to document requirements and privacy and anti-discrimination protections,” added Refugio Mata, Campaign Manager with Presente.org. “Let’s set the gold standard for the nation on driver’s licenses – it’s time to drive California forward on road safety.” Finally, advocates encouraged community members to submit comments on the DMV’s proposed regulations. “Make your voices heard – it’s time to drive California forward,” stated  Luz Gallegos, Community Programs Director for the Imperial Valley’s TODEC Legal Center. 

Gilroy es un lugar donde la gente quiere vivir y criar a sus familias. Nuestros residentes aprecian nuestra calidad de vida y desean que la ciudad siga avanzando. Como Jefe de Bomberos de Gilroy sé que tenemos necesidades importantes en los sistemas de comunicación del 9-1-1 y nuestra respuesta a situaciones de emergencia. El sistema de comunicaciones de emergencia de Gilroy necesita ser actualizado, ya que es obsoleto y podría dejar a la ciudad aislada del resto del condado después de un desastre natural. En caso de un terremoto cuando se necesita ayuda crítica, debemos asegurarnos de que la policía y los bomberos y/o paramédicos de Gilroy puedan comunicarse de manera efectiva con los servicios de emergencia del 9-1-1 en ciudades vecinas. Además, el mantener los tiempos de respuesta del 9-1-1 es esencial para mantener a los residentes seguros. Los médicos dicen que el cerebro empieza a deteriorarse cinco minutos después de que la persona deja de respirar. Tenemos que asegurarnos de que todos los camiones de bomberos de Gilroy, uno de los cuales tiene ya más de 25 años, se mantengan adecuadamente, estén debidamente equipados y capaces de responder rápidamente a las situaciones de emergencia. Por desgracia, la ciudad no tiene los fondos para hacer frente a estos servicios y proyectos críticos. Entre otras necesidades, necesitamos modernizar los sistemas de comunicación del 9-1-1, ampliar los servicios de prevención de pandillas y del crimen, mantener la protección policial y los tiempos de respuesta a emergencias, y mejorar la accesibilidad para discapacitados en las calles y banquetas. Estamos trabajando para desarrollar un plan para hacer frente a nuestras necesidades de seguridad pública y los tiempos de respuesta en la forma más responsable desde el punto de vista fiscal. Queremos saber de usted acerca de cuáles son sus prioridades para Gilroy y los servicios locales de la ciudad. Por favor, visite nuestra página para hacer una breve Encuesta de Opinión Comunitaria en el www.CityofGilroy.org. Estamos utilizando los comentarios de la comunidad para asegurar que cualquier plan aborda las prioridades y preocupaciones de los residentes.

EDUCATION

(StatePoint) Long breaks from reading, writing and critical thinking can be detrimental for students. That’s why savvy parents ensure that kids keep learning over summer. With the implementation of the Common Core and Science Technology Engineering Math (STEM) Standards, bridging the gap between school years is more important than ever. But you don’t need to replicate a classroom to reap the benefits of summer studies. After all, it’s called “vacation” for a reason. Here are few fun ways to keep kids’ brains on high alert all season: Make Math Fun The more interactive and hands-on you can make math, the more engaged kids will be. So avoid drilling them with stale worksheets. Play a board game like “Monopoly,” and bestow the role of “banker” on your child. Or, let them handle the real thing on outings by letting them pay the ice cream vendor and the grocer. You can even consider capitalizing on the summer weather with a lemonade

stand -- it’s a great first small business experience. Supplement these experiences with tools that go beyond a standard workbook. For example, a new book, “Amazing Visual Math,” covers the essential math concepts learned in the first years of school using interactive elements, including pop-ups, flaps and pull-tab elements. Designed to develop manual dexterity and sharpen visual skills, tools like this can make a tedious subject entertaining. Foster their Interests The school year can be hectic and isn’t necessarily an ideal time for a child to take on new hobbies. Summer however, is the perfect time of year to encourage kids to explore new interests through thematic summer camps, community classes and sports teams. You can also nurture interests through non-fiction literature. Check out the “Eyewitness Books” series from DK Publishing with titles that cover a broad range of topics like “World War I,” “Rocks & Minerals” and “Wonders of the World.” Newly updated this year and now available in paperback, they can help bridge the gap between last

school year and the next. Get Informed The implementation of new education policies and standards can be difficult on students, but you can help smooth the transition and prepare your child for the coming school year by learning more about it. Visit www. us.dk.com/education  for Common Core and STEM information for all grade levels, activity sheets and book recommendations on all topics that support classroom learning. Friendly Competition Start a family competition to see who reads the most books this summer. Post the results on the fridge so everyone can see. Road Trip Fun Make summer road trips a bit less of a bore by stocking the car with fun games and activities. The Ultimate Factivity Collection series includes doodle and coloring pages, puzzles, crafts, stickers, facts and activities that encourage learning. With titles like “Animals,”   “Fashion,” “Star Wars” and “LEGO Legends of Chima,” kids won’t suspect they’re learning. 

Veronica T. Avendaño El Observador Con aplicaciones disponible este verano, San Jose será parte de la cadena de 26 escuelas de Cristo Rey. La escuela planea abrir este año 2014, y espera poder inscribir a 125 estudiantes en su año inaugural. Las escuelas Cristo Rey sirven en 17 estados, dando a los estudiantes de bajos ingresos una educación preparatoria para la universidad católica. La escuela será patrocinada por la Provincia de California de la Compañía de Jesús, dando a la escuela de su designación religiosa. El presidente de la escuela Reverendo Peter Pabst, dijo que la escuela se enfoca en atender a los niños de bajos ingresos, “El ingreso de la familia tiene que caer por debajo del nivel de pobreza.” “Aquí en San José el nivel de pobreza se considera como un ingreso de 60,000 dólares para una familia de cuatro.” El modelo de estudio del trabajo de Cristo Rey, comenzó con una escuela de Chicago en 1996, donde en ese momento la zona tenía una tasa de graduación del 43 por ciento de las escuelas secundarias públicas. Desde entonces, el modelo de la escuela cuenta con un 96

por ciento de cuatro años en la tasa de inscripción en la universidad después de graduarse. Al momento de inscribirse los estudiantes de Cristo Rey, trabajarán en una posición de nivel de entrada en una de las 30 empresas que se han asociado con la escuela. En lugar de recibir un cheque de pago personalizado individual, los ingresos obtenidos de la posición de estudio del trabajo se destinará a los gastos de matrícula de los estudiantes. El modelo requiere cuatro estudiantes para dividir una posición a tiempo completo de 40 horas. Los estudiantes serán responsables por traer unos 7,500 dólares de los ingresos por matrícula a través de su colocación estudio del trabajo. Los estudiantes tendrán la opción de trabajar en varios campos a través de empresas como Valley Medical, Cisco y HP. “Las empresas, proporcionan el trabajo, proporcionan la supervisión. Además de que pagan 29,000 dólares para los estudiantes que trabajarán allí “, dijo Pabst. “Ellos tienen una posición de nivel de entrada que las empresas puedan tener una gran cantidad de volúmen de negocios, esto les da estabilidad”.

Los padres serán responsables de pagar la porción remanente del matrícula. Los pagos se configuran mediante una escala móvil, donde los padres pueden pagar en cualquier lugar de un año de mil dólares a diez dólares al mes, dependiendo del nivel de ingresos. Aparte del estudio del trabajo, Cristo Rey implementará “blended learning” o “aprendizaje mixto,” que es un plan de aprendizaje individualizado para cada estudiante”, dijo Pabst. Los estudiantes pasarán una parte de su día escolar en una salón tradicional, mientras que la otra parte del día se dedicará a programas de aprendizaje en línea. Pabst dijo que esto permite el monitoreo y la evaluación de la educación más cerca a diario. “Estoy muy contento de que 125 estudiantes serán preparados para la universidad, para que puedan ir y terminar su educación académica”, dijo Pabst. “Va a impactar al estudiante, la familia y la comunidad, que van a volver con gran ética de trabajo, y dar vuelta a la comunidad de donde vinieron”. El campus se encuentra en East Santa Clara St. y la Highway 101 en los Antigua ubicación de la Escuela Cinco Llagas.

tired respondents have some kind of retirement account. If you’re working, consider using tax-advantaged savings accounts like a 401(k) to boost your retirement security.

(NAPS) Many Americans trying to get their financial lives back on track could benefit from five tips for building a brighter financial future.

Jason Alderman Practical Money He aquí una buena noticia envuelta en una mala: En medio del dolor por la pérdida de un ser querido, se entera de que ha sido nombrado beneficiario del plan 401(k) del fallecido. Seguramente tendrá demasiadas cosas en la cabeza como para tomar decisiones rápidas sobre qué hacer con el dinero. Pero no se deje estar. El IRS aplica reglas, plazos y penalidades severas con respecto a las cuentas de retiro heredadas, que varían según el tipo de cuenta de que se trate. Esta columna trata sobre la herencia de planes 401(k) y otros planes similares provistos por el empleador. De acuerdo con la ley federal, los cónyuges sobrevivientes heredan automáticamente los planes 401(k) de sus cónyuges a menos que se haya nombrado a otra persona como beneficiaria y el cónyuge sobreviviente haya renunciado al plan por escrito. Si la persona fallecida era soltera al momento de su muerte, los fondos de su plan pasan al beneficiario designado. El IRS aplica reglas básicas con respecto a los impuestos, la distribución y los plazos de los planes 401(k). No obstante, los planes tienen la opción de fijar pautas más restrictivas, por lo que se recomienda leer detenidamente los documentos del plan en cuestión. Básicamente: Debe pagar el impuesto a las ganancias sobre las distribuciones (salvo por las cuentas Roth, que ya han sido grava-

das), aunque podría extender los retiros y el pago de los impuestos a lo largo de una cantidad de años, dependiendo de cómo lo estructure. Muchos planes 401(k) exigen a los beneficiarios que retiren el dinero ya sea en su totalidad o en diferentes pagos durante, como máximo, los cinco años posteriores al fallecimiento de la persona; sin embargo, otros le permiten conservar el dinero en el plan por tiempo indefinido. Por eso es conveniente verificar sus reglas. Debe saber que las distribuciones se agregarán a sus ingresos imponibles del año, lo que puede aumentar significativamente sus impuestos. Por eso, mucha gente prefiere extender los pagos lo más posible. Además, cuanto más tiempo permanezcan los fondos en la cuenta, más ingresos se acumularán, libres de impuestos. Si el titular original de la cuenta ya había alcanzado la edad máxima para el retiro, que es 70 años y medio, usted podría continuar retirando fondos de acuerdo al cronograma de retiros que tenía el titular. El monto mínimo que puede retirar por mes dependerá de su propia expectativa de vida, según las tablas del IRS (ver el Apéndice C de la Publicación 590 del IRS en www.irs.gov). Alternativamente, podría acelerar el cronograma de pagos o retirar todo junto. También podría transferir su saldo a una cuenta “IRA heredada”, que debe ser una cuenta diferente de sus demás cuentas IRA. Con una

cuenta IRA heredada, usted debe retirar una determinada cantidad por año, en base a su expectativa de vida. Las distribuciones deben comenzar al año siguiente del fallecimiento del donante, independientemente de que usted esté o no retirado. Asegúrese de que el fiduciario del plan 401(k) transfiera los fondos directamente al fiduciario de la cuenta IRA heredada para que usted nunca toque el dinero; de lo contrario, la transferencia podría anularse y usted tendría que pagar impuestos por la totalidad de la suma ese año. Los cónyuges sobrevivientes tienen otra opción más: en lugar de abrir una cuenta IRA heredada, también pueden hacer una “transferencia conyugal”, que significa transferir el saldo a una cuenta IRA nueva o que ya tengan a su propio nombre. La principal ventaja de la transferencia conyugal es que no hay obligación de comenzar a hacer retiros hasta los 70 años y medio, a diferencia de las cuentas IRA heredadas, en las que se deben comenzar a hacerlos al año siguiente del fallecimiento del donante. Una última cosa: retire siempre, por lo menos, la distribución mínima obligatoria (DMO) por año, si es que hay un monto mínimo especificado. De lo contrario, pagará una penalidad equivalente al 50 por ciento de la diferencia entre la DMO y lo que retiró realmente. En resumen: Hable con un experto financiero o legal antes de tomar una medida con respecto a su herencia.

1. Save for emergencies. When asked if they would be able to come up with $2,000 if an unexpected need arose in the next month, nearly two in five (39 percent) of Americans surveyed said they probably or certainly could not. The best way to avoid this is to build up rainy-day savings in a federally insured savings account. If you can set aside $40 every week, then by this time next year, you will have saved over $2,000. 2. Don’t chase yield. With low yields on fixed-income investments and an economy on the mend, investors have been facing a difficult investing environment. Some investors have been chasing return, meaning they put their assets into riskier products that promise higher yields than they can get in more traditional investments. Investors should realize that they could be taking on more

risk if they invest in products with higher returns. 3. Take advantage of tax breaks when saving for college and retirement. If you have children, try to save for college using tax-advantaged savings accounts like a 529 plan or Coverdell Education Savings Account. The FINRA Investor Education Foundation’s recent National Financial Capability Study showed that only 34 percent of respondents with financially dependent children are setting aside money for their children’s college education. Only 54 percent of nonre-

4. Reduce your debt. More than two out of five Americans (42 percent) surveyed felt they have too much debt, regardless of income. The best way to avoid an endless cycle of credit card debt is to try to pay your credit cards in full and on time. If you have credit card debt, pay it off as quickly as possible. If you’re unable to pay your whole bill, pay more than the minimum due, which will reduce the amount of interest you’ll pay. 5. Check your credit report and score. You need to do both. Only 42 percent of survey respondents said they obtained a copy of their credit report and only 41 percent checked their credit score within the 12 months preceding the survey. With credit hard to get and identity theft a continuing problem, it’s critical to see whether your credit history is accurate and correct any mistakes immediately.

Santa Clara Valley Medical Center Featured in National Study SANTA CLARA COUNTY, CALIFORNIA

American Counseling Association With summer here, most teens will be pushing to have the freedom to stay out later. That issue can lead to major disagreements, but there are ways to eliminate the conflict and get yourself more sleep at the same time. And all it takes is an alarm clock and a few simple agreed-upon rules. Teens’ desire for more responsibility and freedom is a natural part of the maturing process. So start by allowing your teen the responsibility of deciding a reasonable time to be back home. You can set an outside limit, one based on your teen’s age and proven record of responsibility. Next come the rules. Make it clear that exceptions to curfew times need to be cleared with you first. Special late events, or places requiring extra travel, do occur. In such cases, that extra time request requires details about what’s happening, where it is, who’s involved, who’s driving, a phone number you can call and similar information. You and your teen must also decide on the consequences for returning home after the curfew time. Your teen should realize that the time chosen represents a commitment and is a way of showing an

adult level of responsibility. Violating that commitment should carry consequences that mean something. Another rule is that only serious emergencies, ones requiring you to come to the rescue (an auto breakdown, an intoxicated driver), are acceptable curfew-breaking excuses. A call reporting losing track of time or just forgetting isn’t acceptable. If your teenager has set an 11:30 curfew time, an 11:31 return is too late and the consequences should kick in.

This week Santa Clara County was named as one of the healthiest counties for kids in the United States in US News. The paper’s ranking, America’s 50 Healthiest Counties for Kids, represents a national, county-level assessment of how health and environmental factors affect the well-being of children younger than 18. It highlights counties that have fewer infant deaths, fewer low birth weight babies, fewer  deaths from injuries, fewer  teen births, and fewer children in poverty.   The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services launched

And that alarm clock? That’s so you can get a decent night’s sleep. Set it to the time your teen said he or she would be home. Then put it outside your bedroom door and go to bed without worrying. When your teen comes home before the curfew time, he or she shuts off the alarm and you just continue sleeping. But if it’s a late return, that alarm goes off. That ends any arguments about what time your teenager “really” returned. It’s a late return and agreed-upon consequences happen. Don’t make a big deal of it, and give your teen another chance, using the same rules, to improve upon his or her curfew performance.

CALIFORNIA UnitedHealthcare ha ofrecido del 24 al 26 de junio seminarios educativos y demostraciones culinarias en las californianas áreas de Santa Clara y Contra Costa. El objetivo ha sido ayudar a personas de la tercera edad hispanoamericanas y a otros beneficiarios estadounidenses de origen hispano a informarse más sobre Medicare y

sus opciones de cobertura de cuidado de la salud. “Nuestra misión es ayudar a los adultos mayores y a otros beneficiarios de Medicare a vivir más saludablemente y con mayor protección”, ha comentado el portavoz de UnitedHealthcare, René Ibarra. Los participantes han aprendido los conceptos

básicos de Medicare, incluidas las diferentes partes del programa, los requisitos de elegibilidad y los plazos de inscripción. De esta forma podrán tomar decisiones sobre la cobertura de cuidado de su salud con la información necesaria. Una de las asistentes al evento, Fanny Rodriguez, ha asegurado que sus amigas le recomendaron que acudie-

Testing and follow-up services of the newborn screening program is designed to provide early diagnosis and treatment before significant, irreversible damage occurs.   As an essential hospital, Santa Clara Valley Medical Center fills a safety net role in the community and provides excellent care to the residents of this community, including the youngest among us. The prenatal care and care of newborn infants at SCVMC contributes to Santa Clara County being named one of the healthiest counties for kids.

se a los seminarios porque acaba de cumplir 65 años y ya puede entrar en el programa. “El seminario me resultó muy útil para entender mejor las opciones que tengo disponibles en cuanto a Medicare”, ha expresado esta mujer de Daly City, en San Mateo County. Después de los seminarios, los integrantes han participado en una demostración culinaria con la chef Alexa Mata, quien les ha enseñado a preparar un postre latino tradicional como es el arroz con leche, pero de una manera más saludable que la habitual. Las demostraciones culinarias y los seminarios gratuitos se han realizado en español para asegurar que los beneficiarios de Medicare hispanoparlantes pudieran aprender del modo en que les resulta más cómodo.

Cinthia Rodríguez EL OBSERVADOR Hace un año, la Corte Suprema de EE.UU. invalidó la Ley de Defensa del Matrimonio (DOMA por sus siglas en inglés), que define el matrimonio como una relación entre un hombre y una mujer. En esa misma semana, el Noveno Circuito levantó la suspensión de la sentencia del tribunal de distrito, lo que permitió que los matrimonios entre personas del mismo sexo se reanudara en California. “Bueno, no mentiré, lloré bastante en el trabajo cuando pasó”, dijo Michelle Cornejo, partidaria del matrimonio entre parejas del mismo sexo. “Encuentro consuelo sabiendo que si algo llegara a sucederme a mí, que mi pareja, quién me conocerá mejor que mis propios padres, podía hacer un juicio en mi nombre.” La desaparición de la DOMA marca un punto de inflexión en la forma en que el gobierno de Estados Unidos trata a las relaciones de parejas del mismo sexo casadas, inclu-

yendo programas como el seguro de salud y beneficios de jubilación, la presentación de impuestos en forma conjunta, siendo capaces de patrocinar su pareja para residencia en EE.UU., y recibiendo beneficios del seguro social. “Ya no soy un ciudadano de segunda clase”, dijo Erica López, beneficiara de la anulación de la proposición 8. “Por fin tengo la oportunidad de morir en paz sabiendo que María va a estar bien.”

Parejas del mismo sexo ahora pueden casarse en 20 estados y el Distrito de Columbia, con Indiana y Utah los últimos en unirse a la lista. Los otros son: Massachusetts, California, Connecticut, Iowa, New Hampshire, Vermont, Nueva York, Maine, Maryland, Washington, Delaware, Hawái, Minnesota, Nueva Jersey, Rhode Island, New México, Illinois y Pensilvania.

López conoció a su esposa a través de un amigo mutuo. Al principio sólo tomarían un café, un mes después de haber comenzado a salir. Tres meses más tarde fue aceptada en un programa de radiología, pero en Los Ángeles. La distancia fue un poco dura para ellas, pero se las arreglaron para hacer que la relación funcionara. López volvió al Área de la Bahía después de dos años.

Ha pasado una década desde que Massachusetts legalizó el primer matrimonio entre personas del mismo sexo. Recientemente, un tribunal federal de apelaciones dictaminó que la prohibición de Utah es inconstitucional, pero los jueces sostuvieron la sentencia en suspenso por lo que podría ser apelada. Mientras tanto, los 12 tribunales estatales y federales de apelación están revisando resoluciones a favor del matrimonio gay que han surgido en el último año.

“Un año después de vivir acá, le pregunté a su hermana por su bendición, sus padres fallecieron, entonces le propuse matrimonio”, dijo López.

“Le di un anillo, porque la amo y ella es la persona adecuada para mí”, dijo López. “Respeta mi familia y nos equilibramos entre sí. Ella es dispersa, yo

El arte de ahorrar soy organizada; soy terca, y ella es paciente. Soy chistosa y ella es más chistosa.” Aunque López ya está en una unión civil, está planeando casarse en San Francisco, ahora que la Proposición 8 fue declarada inconstitucional. Ella sabe que lo necesitaría en caso de que una de ellas muera y le gustaría evitar cualquier problema. Su familia no habla realmente acerca de ser gay, pero el reconocimiento es más importante para ella que cualquier otra cosa. “Siento que es una lucha que todavía estamos

batallando a pesar de que sucedió”, dijo Cornejo. “El día que la palabra gay se elimine de “matrimonio gay “a sólo matrimonio, será el día en que ganaremos la guerra y lograremos la legalización del matrimonio para todos.” Todavía hay mucho trabajo por delante antes de que las parejas del mismo sexo que viven en todo el país, puedan disfrutar todos la misma protección que sus contrapartes de sexo heterosexual. Algunas personas todavía están siendo perjudicadas por ser quiénes son y por amar a

los que aman. Actualmente no existe ninguna ley federal que prohíba explícitamente la discriminación laboral en base a la orientación sexual o identidad de género. “Mucha gente realmente no lo desea y va a transcurrir un largo periodo de tiempo antes de que tengamos una verdadera igualdad y la visibilidad en el mundo”, dijo Gilbert Ramírez, partidario del matrimonio entre parejas del mismo sexo. “La visibilidad sin los estereotipos, sino como personas reales y no una novedad”.

La Virgen del Perpetuo Socorro es una de las advocaciones más aclamadas de la Virgen María en Europa y en América Latina, su fecha de conmemoración es el 27 de junio. En inglés es conocida como “Our Lady of Perpetual Help”. A ella se le atribuyen millares de milagros en casos de enfermedades, problemas legales y asuntos que parecen difíciles de resolver. La divina presencia de la Virgen del Perpetuo Socorro es aclamada por millones y sus historias están llenas de apariciones y hazañas milagrosas. Se relata que en los albores del siglo xV, un mercader de la isla de Creta, poseía una hermosa pintura de Nuestra Señora del Perpetuo Socorro. El mercader era conocido como un hombre muy piadoso y devoto de la Santísima Virgen. En aquellos tiempos, una gran cantidad de imágenes de la Virgen se habían extraviado y otros habían sido presas de la destrucción y el deterioro. El mercader estaba resuelto a impedir que su cuadro de la Virgen se destruyera como había ocurrido con muchos otros. Por proteger tan divino tesoro, el mercader decidió llevar la pintura a Italia, abordó un

navío y se dirigió a Roma. En la ruta se desató una gran tempestad marina y todos a bordo esperaban lo peor. El mercader tomó el cuadro de Nuestra Señora, lo sostuvo en lo alto, y pidió socorro y todos junto a la embarcación se salvaron del naufragio. La devoción a la Virgen del Perpetuo Socorro es mundial. En el año 1833 una terrible epidemia de viruela azotaba Haití. Los devotos acudieron a la Virgen del Perpetuo Socorro y le hicieron una novena. La epidemia cesó milagrosamente y se decidió nombrarla patrona del país en ese mismo año. Peticiones: Se le pide cuando se atraviesa por grandes angustias, problemas que no parecen tener solución y cuando se está en grave peligro. Para pedirle su milagrosa asistencia se le

ofrenda una vela azul durante 27 días consecutivos, se reza su oración durante el mismo periodo, si el milagro es pedido con fe, éste es concedido antes que finalicen los 27 días. Virgen del Perpetuo Socorro Divina Virgen del Perpetuo Socorro, acoge a tus fieles y concédenos todos los favores y peticiones que te hacemos este día.Alivia nuestras penas, dale calma a nuestro espíritu y libéranosprontamente de la angustia y el pesar.Tú que eres Santa y misericordiosa, ruega por nosotros anteel trono de Dios, ilumina nuestro camino con la bienaventurada luz de tus ojos piadosos y llévanos a su presencia arropados con el esplendor de tu divino manto. Amén.

The Colorado-based sustainability think-tank Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) believes we already have the technologies to help foster a rapid evolution of our electricity system, but we still need the political and institutional will to make it happen. Pictured: RMI founder Amory Lovins speaking at an energy summit in Berlin, Germany in 2013. Photo: Rudolf Simon.

Roddy Scheer & Doug Moss EARTHTALK Colorado-based sustainability think-tank Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) was founded in 1982 by American physicist and environmentalist, Amory Lovins, to research and promote market-based solutions to our energy crisis without breaking the bank. The group is focusing efforts on transforming domestic and eventually global energy use to create a clean, prosperous and secure energy future by mid-century. “We can eliminate our addiction to oil and coal by 2050 and use one-third less natural gas while switching to efficient use and renewable supply,” says Lovins, adding that doing so could actually cost less and support a more robust economy than continuing with business-as-usual: “Moreover, this transition needs no new inventions, and no acts of Congress, and no new federal taxes, mandate subsidies or laws…” To get there, Lovins acknowledges that we have to start thinking differently now. RMI is advocating cutting U.S. electricity consumption by 18 percent over the next 10 years while

almost doubling renewable energy’s share of generation from 16 to 30 percent. Few would argue with the cost savings and environmental benefits of such a plan—implementation is the challenge. According to Lovins, we already have the technologies to help foster a rapid evolution of our electricity system, but we still need the political and institutional will to make it happen. RMI has begun a dialogue with utilities and other entities to align incentives, and create more opportunities for electricity users to contribute clean power to the grid themselves, through technologies like rooftop solar power. One key feature of RMI’s plan are rate structures that reflect the true benefits and costs of moving to more distributed (small scale/decentralized) energy resources. The group is working with utilities to launch six “Electricity Innovation Labs” nationally, as well as a “Solar Development Excellence Center” to highlight the feasibility of distributed renewables. RMI also wants to simplify commercial photovoltaic financing, incorporate renewables into real estate finance and make solar financing affordable to underserved markets.RMI also wants to make large buildings much

more energy efficient, and aims to make a billion square feet of commercial space 35 percent more efficient by 2025 through so-called “deep energy” retrofits, including the adoption of more renewables. RMI is targeting four of the largest, most influential segments of the buildings market—major companies, the General Services Administration, the Department of Defense and “activist” cities (those already on the green cutting edge)—for major energy retrofits, and is working to persuade private investors to consider overall impact and long-term costs, not just short term gains. Another major part of RMI’s plan is to work with large metro regions with upwards of 10 million residents, and with university campuses, to make major efficiency gains. Other keys to getting us off oil and coal by 2050 include transforming how we design and use vehicles, and getting Fortune 500 corporations to rejigger their energy supply chains to facilitate procurement of more renewable energy. Beyond the U.S., RMI is working along similar lines with China and other large developing countries to help them avoid some of the energy development missteps undertaken here at home.

Google has been making news in recent months for its work in a ground-breaking area: driverless automobile technology. A prototype of Google’s new self-driving car -- a two-passenger electric vehicle with buttons to turn the vehicle on and off, but no steering wheel, accelerator pedal or brake pedal -- was unveiled in May. Without a driver at the wheel, the car is instead guided by a light detection and ranging (LIDAR) rotating sensor on the vehicle’s roof that scan the vehicle’s surroundings to determine its driving route as well as to identify such obstacles as pedestrians, bicyclists and other cars. While Google is widely considered a front-runner in the

GREEN LIVING / AUTOMOTIVE

development of such advanced automation technology, the major automakers are also getting into the race. Albeit at a more conservative pace, they’re introducing automated features that perform specific tasks -- such as adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and collision-avoidance braking -- to their new car models. According to a recent report by Lux Research, cars with these so-called “Level 2” features are expected to account for 92 percent of a worldwide $87 billion-per-year autonomous car market by 2030. Only 8 percent of the market will go to “Level 3” cars, which would be primarily driven autonomously, but would allow drivers to regain control of the vehicle in an emergency. In addition, the research firm doesn’t expect any fully au-

15

tomated vehicles on the road by 2030. “We consider that ultimate level, Level 4, to be full autonomy, where you just get in and you don’t interact with the car at all,” explained Cosmin Laslau, lead analyst at Lux Research. “And we don’t think that’s coming by 2030. The biggest opportunity that we see will be actually from the Level 2 features, which are the more conventional advances that we’re already starting to see come onto the market from higher-end developers.” Winner is scheduled to address the challenges facing the development of the driverless car during the panel session “IT Meets the Automobile: Interactive Advanced Vehicle Technologies and Self-Driving Cars” at the ASME Advanced Design and Manufacturing Impact Forum in Buffalo, New York.

Esta increíble aventura los arrastrará a una guerra entre el bien y el mal y, en última instancia, a una batalla culminante que involucrará a todo el mundo.

Spain, 1966: Antonio (Javier Cámara, from “I’m So Excited!”) is a teacher and a Beatles fan – facets he combines by getting his pupils to recite the lyrics from “Help” in English class. When he learns that his idol John Lennon is making a film in Almería (Richard Lester’s “How I Won the War”) he resolves to meet him. On the journey he picks up two young runaways: Bethlehem, a pregnant girl fleeing a convent, and Juanjo, a boy escaping a dictatorial father.

In a future where a failed global-warming experiment kills off all life on the planet except for a lucky few that boarded the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe, where a class system evolves.


ARTS & CULTURE

JUNE 27- JULY 3, 2014

A selection of 72 stunning artworks drawn from the collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) and  the Asian Art Museum challenges visitors to confront the extremes and the ambiguities of beauty in the special exhibition Gorgeous. On view June 20 through Sept. 14, 2014, at the Asian Art Museum, the exhibition is organized in partnership with SFMOMA as part of SFMOMA’s On the Go program, an ambitious multiyear off-site programming effort presented while its building is closed for expansion construction. Featuring an extraordinary mix of objects, Gorgeous spans more than 2,200 years and dozens of cultures to bring together artworks that, in a variety of ways, extend beyond conventional notions of beauty. Presenting these paintings, sculptures, photographs, design objects and drawings in new and unexpected contexts, the exhibition encourages viewers to examine their own ideas of what it means for something to be gorgeous by stimulating them to engage the objects in a personal way. As a starting point, the curators have suggested fluid groupings in which the artworks might be assembled. Those groupings are titled “Seduction,” “Dress Up,” “Pose,” “In Bounds,” “Danger,” “Beyond Imperfection,” “Reiteration,” “Fantasy,” “Evocation” and “On Reflection.” But many works could fit under more than one heading, and the unexpected groupings on view represent just a few of the limitless possibilities. The objects in Gorgeous are not easily categorized, and embracing their resistance to classification is an essential part of the project. Rather than providing a contrast between “East” and “West” or focusing on centuries of scholarly debate concerning

beauty, the exhibition aims to engage visitors in an ongoing conversation about personal reactions to what makes something not merely beautiful but gorgeous. Many of the artworks push boundaries. They balance on the tipping point between the seductive and the repulsive, the comforting and the disturbing, the earnest and the ironic, the serene and the obsessive. The depictions of people range from opulently adorned figures to frank portrayals of the human form. The exhibition also encompasses historical objects such as a silver elephant seat from India and a Chinese lacquered imperial chair as well as contemporary objects, including the first-generation iPhone and a gold-plated coke spoon by Tobias Wong and Ju$t Another Rich Kid. Visitors will encounter works of fantastical elaboration and triumphs of conceptual elegance, serene sacred objects and luxury consumer goods. As part of the educational experience, visitors can curate their own exhibition using reproductions of artworks in a tactile interactive display. Highlights of the exhibition include paintings, sculptures and photographs from SFMOMA’s holdings by Marcel Duchamp, Jeff Koons, Marilyn Minter, Joan Miró, Chris Ofili, Meret Oppen-

heim, Robert Mapplethorpe and others. From the Asian Art Museum, the exhibition features works spanning the extent of Asia, including a 1,000-year-old Indian sculpture of the Hindu deity Durga victorious over the buffalo demon; a gilded and jeweled Burmese Buddhist bowl; a Korean textile artwork with complex geometric designs; a decorated Qur’an from 16thcentury Persia; a set of silk scrolls by the artist Chobunsai Eishi (1756–1829), “Three types of beauties in Edo;” and Hua Yan’s (1682–1756) gold-surfaced ink paintings “Summer gatherings in mountain villas,” along with other works in a variety of mediums. Gorgeous is curated by Allison Harding, assistant curator of contemporary art at the Asian Art Museum, and Forrest McGill, Wattis senior curator of South and Southeast Asian art and director of the Asian Art Museum’s Research Institute for Asian Art, in association with Janet Bishop, curator of painting and sculpture at SFMOMA, and Caitlin Haskell, assistant curator of painting and sculpture at SFMOMA. The exhibition begins in Osher Gallery and continues in Hambrecht Gallery, Lee Gallery and Gallery 4, with sculptures activating North Court and Vinson Gallery.

Paulina Derbez es integrante de la Orquesta Filarmónica de Ontario desde el 2006; es autora del libro ?El músico consciente? y creadora de una moderna metodología para enseñar música. La artista tiene una forma muy especial de tocar el violín, pues retomando sus experiencias de teatro multidisciplinario en Suiza creó en Toronto su espectáculo ‘Shika, del silencio nace el sonido’, una obra para voz y violín, donde el músico no es sólo un ejecutante sino un personaje sonoro.

“Tengo una conexión muy fuerte con la parte italiana de Suiza. ‘Altri Suoni’ quiere decir ?otros sonidos? en italiano, porque lo que hacemos es unir la música clásica con la de vanguardia”, señaló. La artista agregó que en este concierto combinaron las interpretaciones de piezas de Johann Sebastian Bach, Franz Schubert y Amadeus Mozart con la música de vanguardia que incluye en su disco.

Este fue el lanzamiento oficial de su disco compacto en Canadá y en un futuro próximo lo presentará en México, adelantó la violinista. Paulina Derbez tuvo su primer concierto fuera de México en Japón a los 11 años de edad y después fue becada por el Fondo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes (Fonca) para continuar sus estudios en Suiza. Se ha presentado en escenarios de Italia, Francia, Alemania, Suiza y México y ha sido maestra de violín durante dos décadas, basada en su propio método de enseñanza.

de la duda”, comentó el actor a Notimex en entrevista.

La telenovela mexicana “Qué pobres tan ricos”, de la productora Rosy Ocampo, concluirá sus transmisiones este 29 de junio con un mensaje acerca del respeto y la tolerancia, informó su protagonista Jaime Camil.

En ese sentido, consideró que las barreras sociales no existirían en México ni en América Latina si las personas se dieran el tiempo de conocerse y nunca estereotipar a los demás por su apariencia.

Así como en el final de “Por ella soy Eva”, que la misma productora presentó hace dos años y en la que el personaje estelar, también interpretado por Camil, dirigió a la audiencia un mensaje de reflexión, esta vez adoptarán la misma dinámica.

“Eso fue lo que promovió ‘Qué pobres tan ricos’, un mensaje de tolerancia a todo tipo de creencias y a estilos de vidas. En el último capítulo habrá un monólogo similar al de ‘Por ella soy Eva’ en el que trataremos de sembrar un buen mensaje sobre esto”, destacó.

“Todas las novelas de Rosy tienen un mensaje social maravilloso, que se refiere a la importancia de no juzgar a nadie sin darle el beneficio

Admitió que en algunos momentos le llegaron a molestar las críticas con respecto a la comedia que contenía la novela, “pero si esa gente que opinaba escuchara cómo la audiencia agradecía esa hora de felicidad y de sonrisas, entenderían por qué me gusta tanto el género de

la comedia romántica”.Aunque ha sido casual que Jaime Camil estelarice este tipo de propuestas televisivas, pues antes ha sobresalido en “La fea más bella” (2006) y “Los exitosos Pérez” (2009), por citar algunas, aseguró que le gusta participar en todo tipo de proyectos. “Me siento cómodo en la comedia romántica, pero eso no quiere decir que descarte los demás, soy feliz trabajando como actor, sin importar el género”. Adelantó que para el final de “Qué pobres tan ricos” el público será testigo del castigo que el personaje de Mark Tacher recibirá por sus villanías, mientras que su papel “Miguel Ángel” y el de “Lupita” (Zuria Vega) serán felices.

(NOTIMEx) La trayectoria del emblemático luchador mexicano El Santo será analizada durante la plática “30 años sin El Santo y a 80 de su debut”, que se llevará a cabo en el Centro de Creación Literaria “xavier Villaurrutia”, el próximo 26 de junio. El poeta Daniel Téllez, el historiador Michael Ramos-Araizaga y el psicólogo Dán Lee resaltarán la figura del luchador profesional, quien ha sido el héroe mexicano por excelencia que entre el rito y el mito, se convirtió en uno de los grandes emblemas de la producción cultural mexicana. “El Santo es un héroe de carne y hueso, como dictan los cánones populares. Su espacio vital lo constituye la cultura de un público dispuesto al intercambio y apropiación de la figura mítica. “En la frágil frontera entre realidad y fantasía, la figura de El Santo cede y se recrea bajo las condiciones que sólo nuestra cultura posibilita”, destacó Daniel Téllez, mediante un comunicado de prensa. Asimismo, el poeta comentó que es importante la recreación de la figura de El Santo, ya que tiene diferentes matices que abarcan lo político, lo estético y lo económico. La charla podrá ser presenciada por el público en el Centro de Creación Literaria “xavier Villaurrutia”, este jueves en punto de las 19:00 horas.
