Marijuana, both recreational and medicinal, must be legalized at the national (federal) level. What has not been included in discussions of ‘legalizing marijuana, due to the current practices of law enforcement, is that our jails are full of youth who were convicted of having small amounts of marijuana in their possession at the time of being arrested. With the “Three strikes’ laws on the books, too many youth’s lives were disrupted or damaged. California’s prison census exceeds its capacity. In response to Federal court orders, its realignment is transferring selected inmates back to local jails. The santa Clara County Jails are receiving 1,400 inmates per year. The U.s. Congress needs to legalize marijuana (pot) so as to create national standards for the entire nation. The current ‘bipolar’ schizophrenic approach to the recreational and medicinal use of pot creates too many disparities. What is being assessed is pot as the next large source of tax revenues. bottom line considerations seem to trump human issues without assessed inclusion of social costs. What is also not being considered is the very high cost to low-income communities especially communities of color. When their youth get ‘busted’, they are marked for the duration of their school years and life as an outcome of having ‘a record’. Many get redirected while serving jail sentences towards a life of crime. In addition, punitive jail sentencing needs to include behavior modification and counseling, i.e., rehabilitation. Today more is known about psychedelic drugs and

the mitigation of damage done. recently, the board of supervisors, County of santa Clara, Ca, endorsed the establishment of the department of behavioral Health which integrate the former department of Health ($325 million budget) and drug and alcohol dependency services (dads-$50 million budget). The san Jose City Council recently passed an ordinance crafted to limit marijuana sales by limiting the locales where outlets may be operated. Generally, pot dispensaries cannot be near any school, day care center, etc. The tax and license fee revenues generated are already in the millions. The real issue is that the sale of marijuana is still against federal law, which is the law of the land, and which takes precedence over local ordinances and state laws. The sale of pot, regardless of being ‘medicinal’ or ‘recreational’, is a federal offense. It is time that, as a nation, we admit that the ‘War on drugs’ is ineffective. In fact, the transport of marijuana, whatever its source, is a very big business which permits cartels to conduct business without payment of any taxes. What that means is that their business gets subsidized by the rest of us who pay for roads, bridges, communications systems, transportation services, etc...i.e. the infrastructure which is needed and used by business. That is simply not right! Washington, Colorado, and California are amongst those states where ‘medicinal pot’ may be sold. The sale of ‘recreational pot’ is now competing with the illegal criminal sale of ‘recreational

somos una aldea global, y a pesar de que el concepto está claro hace mucho, en la práctica, al parecer no nos damos cuenta. Pero vamos por partes.

pot’ which has been going on for decades. Today, 23 states have authorized the sale of recreational marijuana or medicinal marijuana. so this nation is like the two-faced mythical Janus with its state laws and federal laws that are not reconciled and are contradictory. according to ‘all In’ by Chris Hayes, (MsNbC, July 8, 2014) 58% of americans favor legalization of pot (at the national level). but several lobbies in Washington, d.C. are keeping the sale of marijuana illegal. The ‘opiate drug’ manufacturers are funding lobbyists to help the U.s. Congress keep the current national marijuana policy right where it is now: IllEGal at the federal level. The national legalization of marijuana is viewed as the biggest threat to the profits of those pharmaceutical firms which make, and sell, opiates and other psychedelic ‘brain drugs’. These ‘big Pharma firms’ reap significant profits today. They are not willing to let legalized pot enter the market place at a lower more reasonable cost. legalized pot may be easier and cheaper for those who want to use it to mitigate their pain or to get to a ‘high’ rather cheaply. legalized Pot may be a cheaper and safer product than the legal prescription drugs on the market today. Two other opponents to legalized pot are the privately operated for-profit prison services and, believe it or not, law enforcement unions. Will the U.s. Congress ever ignore these lobbyists in order to legalize pot? let’s legalize marijuana at the national level and thereby act in the interest of ‘We, The People’.

la crisis humanitaria generada por el éxodo masivo de niños y adolescentes de los países centroamericanos a Estados Unidos, que ha traído a este lado del continente a más de 52 mil almas, es un patético ejemplo de ello, y por tanto de lo mucho que nos falta avanzar como seres humanos. levantar la mano para señalar culpables es muy fácil, y en momentos de crisis como este, ese es un comportamiento reiterativo, los demócratas señalan a los republicanos, los republicanos a los demócratas, los congresistas se lavan las manos y el presidente pide plata, pero al final no pasa nada. y no va a pasar nada, si sigue primando el comportamiento egoísta y ciego que nos ha regido hasta ahora. El problema, para empezar no es solo de Estados Unidos, el problema es del continente. En los países emisores de pequeños emigrantes, como el salvador, Honduras y Guatemala rige la inequidad social, la pobreza avanza rampante y la delincuencia acampa en las calles en medio de una innegable impunidad. Miles de familias sufren las consecuencias del desmembramiento por diversas causas, una de ellas la emigración al país del norte, lo que deja a los pequeños en manos de cuidadores impotentes para alejarlos de las garras de la violencia o la ambición. Muchos terminan alimentando las fauces de las maras o huyendo temerosos a un desierto inhóspito que a pesar del peligro que encarna guarda la promesa de la libertad. y allí está la falacia, la mentira, el engaño. Porque no hay tal libertad y el sueño americano se convierte para los viajantes

en una pesadilla, se traduce en un refugio inhóspito donde con suerte calmaran su sed. la crisis fronteriza que vive Estados Unidos hoy en día es la consecuencia de su propia ineficiencia, de su incapacidad de legislar y poner orden dentro de sus propios límites. si hubiese un sistema migratorio mínimamente coherente, los padres de muchos de los niños que invaden hoy esos refugios tendrían el estatus legal que merecen como trabajadores y podrían traer a sus hijos por vías legales y decentes. El presidente barack Obama pide hoy dinero para responder a la crisis y vuelve a hacer promesas, cuando es evidente que la reforma migratoria con la que se comprometió no se hará realidad. Pero lo cierto es que en su momento, el presidente usó el tema migratorio como caballito de batalla para ser elegido y reelegido dentro de la comunidad hispana y al final no cumplió. lo cierto es que Obama le falló a los hispanos, nunca invirtió el capital político que era necesario para sacar la reforma adelante, como si lo hizo, por ejemplo, a la hora de sacar adelante la reforma a la salud. Pero eso ya no importa porque la rueda vuelve a girar y en las próximas elecciones seguramente habrá

quien se vuelva a encaramar en el caballo de la reforma para manipular a una comunidad que enceguecida por la esperanza, seguramente volverá a caer. Pero la verdad es que la miseria emocional en la que viven millones de inmigrantes en Estados Unidos no le importa al presidente, ni a los congresistas, ni a nadie con poder de transformarla. la prueba reina es la tragedia humanitaria que se vive en la frontera. Pero los países emisores no pueden negar su responsabilidad. su condición de subdesarrollados no los escusa. somos una aldea global, lo que pasa aquí afecta a los de allá, lo que me pasa a mí te afecta a ti. la humanidad no puede abstraerse de sí misma, estamos todos en el mismo barco, somos una aldea global, o, para entenderlo mejor, la inconciencia de un representante cualquiera a la Cámara de representantes de Estados Unidos, termina afectando directamente a un pobre niño que se haya sin alternativas y se ve empujado a atravesar el desierto en busca de un mundo mejor. lo cierto es que para muchos el sueño americano es una pesadilla. y usted, ¿Qué piensa hacer al respecto?

“Pack-A-Back” registration aims to equip thousands of children with school supplies SACRAMENTO

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) is warning the public about fraudulent phone callers seeking to deceive people into revealing sensitive personal health and financial information. The callers, who claim to be representatives of CDPH, contact people to inquire about a surgery or medical procedure in hopes of obtaining personal information such as bank accounts and medical history. CDPH does not make such calls. 

 Dr. Ron Chapman, director of the CDPH and state health officer, said the public needs to be careful about sharing their personal information. 

 “People should be cautious about unsolicited phone calls regarding their personal health,” said Dr. Chapman. “These callers can be very convincing, but no one should ever give out their financial or

medical information during an initial telephone call. If you receive one of these calls, you should hang up immediately and report it.” 

 Based on complaints received by CDPH, the callers are often male with heavy foreign accents and primarily target women, some of whom may have had surgical mesh or bladder sling surgery. The callers may hint at offers of compensation and attempt to lure consumers into giving out private information. 

 If you receive such a call, do not provide the caller with any personal information such as your address, date of birth, social security number, any banking or credit card information, or any health-related information. Instead, hang up and contact the Attorney General’s Office at (800) 9525225 or online at http://oag. ca.gov/contact/consumercomplaint-against-businessor-company to report the call.

SAN JOSE POLICE DEPARTMENT 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.

Beware of the Scams:

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. 5. If you are a victim or know of anyone who is criminally involved please call 911 or contact Crime Stoppers at (408) 947-STOP.

How to obtain a license:

1. Written Test: Pass a 36 question test. You can prepare and study the California Driver Handbook which is available in ten languages. www.dmv. ca.gov 2. Take Practice Test: Sample tests can be found on the DMV website. 3. Proper documents: Prepare all your documents to demonstrate the Department of Motor Vehicle when applying for your license that proves your residency and verify your identity. 4. Make an Appoint for your license test. Can make a appoint on line or call DMV customer service at (800) 777-0133 For more information on Crime Prevention tips please visit www.sjpd.org

Arturo Hilario El Observador On the early morning of Friday July 11th, Sacred Heart Community Service opened its registration program for thousands of families in order for their children to get a backpack with essential school supplies for the coming year. Some parents were here as early as the previous night waiting patiently for the registration to open up, much like during the holidays at Sacred Heart, where food, toys, as well as other essential services are offered. In 2002 150 backpacks were given out. Now, 12 years later, that number has skyrocketed to 2,800 backpacks. Although it is a large difference, it’s unfortunately not enough to secure all the children in the area with the tools for school. “Academic achievement starts with ensuring children have the right tools in hand on the first day of school” said Executive Director Poncho Guevara. “Last year, we had

areas to have their children go to inadequately funded schools around the San Francisco Bay Area. The lack of proper care leads to missed opportunities for these children.

Economic inequality has been an increasingly staggering reality in the Bay Area as funding continues to go to the higher tax bracketed communities. This forces the working class and poorer

Although new measurements and laws are down the pipeline, such as local control funding formula for allocating funding more appropriately through the various districts, this will not be fully

in place until the 2020-21 school year. That is why Sacred Heart believes it’s crucial for anyone who can help to do so.

marks its 10th Anniversary California’s groundbreaking Paid Family Leave (PFL) program gives employees opportunities to care for ill family members and bond with new children – a program that has provided partial wage replacement to an estimated 1.8 million Californians over the last decade. As PFL marks its tenth anniversary, the state law is expanding to cover a broader circle of family members.

Workforce Development Agency noted that a decade ago “California became the first state in the nation tooffer benefits to employees who take time off to care for a seriously ill child,parent, spouse, or registered domestic partner, or to bond with a newborn or newly adopted child. And thanks to legislation signed by Governor Jerry Brown last fall, we’re expanding that program to cover caring for a seriously ill grandparent, grandchild, sibling, and parent-in-law.”

Secretary David Lanier of the California Labor and

ployment Development Department (EDD). “When PFL was signed into law a decade ago, it signaled a recognition that employees at times have to make difficult decisions between family and work obligations, and we simply don’t want Californians to have to choose between being good parents and good employees,” said EDD Director Patrick W. Henning Jr. “I’m proud of the dedicated work EDD staff have delivered over the last ten years in easing those decisions for

about 1.8 million of our fellow Californians, and supporting their families’ needs.” “California’s first-in-thenation Paid Family Leave law has provided California families with economic stability during important family events, and has benefited California businesses and the state economy. Now it’s a model as a national conversation starts about how best to provide paid family leave across the country,” said Ann O’Leary, Vice-President and Director of the Children & Families program at Next Generation.

California now has an official state amphibian: the California red-legged frog (Rana draytonii),a state species of special concern. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) has worked for many years to conserve and restore populations of this rare species. By declaring the California red-legged frog the official state amphibian of California, the Legislature and Governor acknowledge the species’ important place in the ecology, culture and history of California. It also broadcasts and reinforces the state’s commitment to protecting its rare resources, which include amphibians. Within California, it lives in various aquatic habitats from sea level to more than 5,000 feet in elevation, occupying a variety of aquatic habitats and their adjacent uplands in the coastal mountain ranges from southern Mendocino to

northern Los Angeles counties and a few isolated areas in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. It has been lost from most of Southern California, but some populations still persist in northwestern Baja California, Mexico. The California red-legged frog is the largest native frog in the western United States. Amphibians, especially frogs, provide an important function in aquatic ecosystems by eating insects and being a food source for other animals. They are also excellent indicators of the environmental quality of an area. This species is the highly renowned frog that Mark Twain wrote about in The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County in 1865. They were abundant until the 19th century Gold Rush, when the human population suddenly tripled, and the “forty-niners” nearly ate them into extinction at a rate of approximately 80,000 frogs per year. When

the over-consumption of California’s native frogs created a shortage, food sellers introduced non-native bullfrogs to replace them in the frog leg (food) market. Now those bullfrogs have become widespread, and compete for the same food source thus threatening the native frog species’ existence. The California red-legged frog is listed as threatened under the federal Endangered Species Act, which prohibits them from being “taken” (harassed, harmed, pursued, hunted, shot, wounded, killed, trapped, captured or collected). It also prohibits adverse modification of their designated critical habitat without adequate mitigation. The primary threat to California red-legged frog populations has been habitat loss. According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the frog has seen a 70 percent reduction of its former geographic

range, primarily due to conversion or degradation of habitat. “We’ve learned a great deal about our impact on California species and their environment during the past century,” said CDFW Senior Environmental Scientist Rhianna Lee. “These frogs are unique members of their native ecosystems and the food web, evolving together so that all the pieces support each other for long-term survival. Removing one or more of the pieces can have a negative effect on the health of the environment. Governor Brown signed Assembly Bill 2364 (V. Manuel Pérez, D-Indio) into law June 28. The proposal for a state amphibian was made by an after-school club at Sea View Elementary School in Salton City. Third grade students suggested the designation in a letter to Assemblyman Pérez.

(StatePoint)  Desafortunadamente, el ritmo de aprendizaje del aula no se puede adaptar a las necesidades individuales de cada estudiante, especialmente en estos tiempos, cuando el tamaño de los grupos está creciendo y se ve limitada la financiación para programas de enriquecimiento especial; de hecho, por lo menos 35 estados proporcionaron menos financiación por estudiante para el año escolar 2013-14 que la que dieron antes de la recesión de 2007. Muchos niños tendrán que pasar algún tiempo fuera de las aulas yendo más allá de sus tareas ordinarias para mantenerse al día o salir adelante en la escuela. Sin importar cuáles son las metas de la educación de su hijo, hay maneras excelentes en que puede ayudarle a hacer de este año escolar el mejor que nunca haya tenido: • Práctica de matemáticas: Raíces cuadradas, polinomios, cuadriláteros. Aprender estos términos y conceptos puede volverse difícil rápidamente. Mantenerse al día en casa es importante y a veces demanda más que simplemente hacer la tarea que se lleva a casa en el día.

Plantéese complementar las tareas con herramientas en línea. Por ejemplo, Shmoop, un proveedor en línea de aprendizaje y preparación de exámenes, proporciona guías de estudio gratuitas para su revisión y cursos para el trabajo correctivo en muchos temas académicos, entre ellos las ciencias sociales, las artes y la música, ciencias e inglés. Sus tutoriales de matemáticas cubren todo, desde la pre-álgebra al cálculo, y las explicaciones paso a paso que ofrece el programa pueden ser útiles para cualquier estudiante que busque tener una ventaja adicional.

• Use fichas resumidas: Puede parecer curioso, pero no hay nada como hacerse sus propios cuestionarios usando fichas resumidas. Incluso el hecho de crear la ficha resumida puede ayudar a reforzar conceptos y datos. • Ayuda adicional: Un poco de ayuda académica adicional después de la escuela puede en ocasiones marcar la diferencia entre la lucha y el éxito. Pero, entre la escuela y los entrenamientos de fútbol, las clases de ballet y preparar la cena, añadir a la lista un tutor o una clase particular puede ser una imposibilidad logística.

• Lea a los clásicos: Los niños que leen por placer pueden mejorar sus calificaciones. Estar expuesto a gigantes literarios como John Steinbeck, Mark Twain y Harriet Beecher Stowe no sólo desarrolla el vocabulario y mejora la comprensión de la lectura; hay mucho qué aprender sobre la historia y la cultura cuando se toma un gran libro, como “Las aventuras de Huckleberry Finn”. Asegúrese de utilizar herramientas que puedan ayudar a aclarar algunos de los materiales más densos. Las guías de aprendizaje en línea pueden ser un lugar excelente para obtener resúmenes y análisis.

Plantéese cursos en línea que puedan llevarse a cabo desde la comodidad del hogar y estén alineados con el tronco común. Los estudiantes que toman cursos de colocación avanzada este otoño deben revisar sus cursos de preparación de prueba Advanced Placement (AP). Estos cursos ayudan a los estudiantes a superar el importante examen de fin de año que concede créditos. Con un poco de esfuerzo adicional y el uso de herramientas inteligentes para el aprendizaje, los niños pueden lograr una ventaja competitiva en este año escolar.

Un estudio reciente realizado por McAfee reveló algunos resultados inquietantes: • Si bien el 96 por ciento de los adultos encuestados confió a su pareja contraseñas, fotos íntimas y demás contenido personal, solo el 32 por ciento pidió a sus ex que borraran la información al terminar la relación. • Una de cada cinco personas dijo que ingresa a la cuenta de Facebook de su pareja por lo menos una vez al mes. • Un 30 por ciento admitió

(BPT) Summer has just begun and that long-awaited vacation is on the horizon. Unfortunately, it can quickly pass you by and before you know it, that precious vacation time has been wasted due to inadequate trip planning or a basic inability to relax. Twenty-three percent of Americans take no vacation time at all, according to a report from the Center for Economic and Policy Research. With employees skipping out on vacation days every year, the bigger question remains as to why this continues to happen, and what happens when employees actually take that time off? More importantly, how can an individual enjoy a vacation without being completely disconnected from work? First off, it’s important to understand the value of taking time off work. “A well-placed vacation can help break the

haber “ciber-acosado” a los/las “ex” de sus parejas en los medios sociales. Dada la elevada tasa de divorcios y la frecuencia con la que los matrimonios terminan mal, no es descabellado pensar que un/a amante despechado/a pueda dañar gravemente su crédito y reputación. Si se está divorciando, aquí van algunas consideraciones legales, financieras y de privacidad importantes: Si usted y su pareja están completamente de acuerdo sobre la división de los bienes y el pago de las deudas, tal vez puedan arreglarse con un kit de divorcio hogareño, aunque siempre es bueno que un abogado revise los formularios para asegurarse de que no se les haya pasado nada por alto.

Si su separación es más complicada pero relativamente amistosa, también pueden intentar un divorcio de común acuerdo, una mediación o un arbitraje: • Divorcio de común acuerdo. Cada parte contrata a un abogado y los cuatro firman un acuerdo extrajudicial. Las partes deciden el acuerdo en lugar de tener que cumplir con la decisión de un juez. • Mediación. Las partes tienen sus abogados pero contratan a un tercero mediador para dirimir las diferencias sobre cuestiones críticas. Los mediadores no tienen autoridad legal para dictar sentencia. • Arbitraje. Es igual que la mediación, solo que el árbitro redacta y entrega un acuerdo vinculante que las partes deben cumplir.

cycle of everyday workplacerelated stress,” says Dr. Joffrey Suprina, dean of the College of Behavioral Sciences at Argosy University. “Chronic stress takes a toll on our body’s health, disrupting its ability to resist infection, maintain vital functions and even avoid injury. When you’re stressed out and tired, you are more likely to become ill. Your sleep will suffer and not only do you become more irritable, depressed, and anxious, but your memory will become worse and you’ll make poor decisions. So vacations are important to our overall physical and mental health.”

A new survey from Glassdoor found that 61 percent of employees admitted to doing some work while on vacation. In a connected world of smartphones, iPads and WiFi, that might not seem like a big deal. It’s easy to work remotely. However, many people aren’t getting the most of their vacation. Checking an email can easily lead to jumping on a project, which has potential to

So before you leave the office for vacation, assign a person to help others regarding your normal responsibilities and let everybody clearly know who this person is - including them in an automatic email reply and voice mail.

“Taking time off has a positive effect on employee happiness and productivity, however many people are simply afraid to walk away from their work even for a few days,” says Dr. Carlos Tasso E. De Aquino, assistant dean of the Graduate School of Business and Management at Argosy University. “With globalization and increasing competition, the workforce feels threatened to lose their jobs to people anywhere in the world, so they develop this ‘addiction’ and never stop working,” adds Aquino.

Porciones: 16 (Family Features)

Capa frutal: 1/2taza de azúcar 1/2 taza de agua 1libra de fresas maduras, sin cáliz 1 pizca de sal fina marina 8 onzas líquidas de moscato rosado Gallo Family Pink Moscato Capa cremosa: 1 lata (14 onzas) de leche condensada azucarada 1 1/2 taza de mezcla de leche y crema 1 taza de crema espesa 1 cucharada de agua de flores de naranja 1 pizca de sal fina marina

Palillos de albóndigas y moscato Tiempo de preparación: 15 minutos Tiempo de cocción: 30 minutos Porciones: 32 albóndigas 2 libras de salchicha italiana picante envasada 1/2 taza de moscato tinto Gallo Family Vineyards Red Moscato 1 taza de yogur griego natural 1/4 taza de aceite de oliva extravirgen 1/2 taza de pepino en cubos 1 limón 1/4 taza de cilantro, picado queso parmesano, opcional Precaliente el horno a 350 °F. En un tazón grande, mezcle la salchicha y el moscato hasta integrar. Con una cuchara para postre mediana, forme las albóndigas, y distribúyalas sobre una placa para horno de manera uniforme. Lleve al horno de 25 a 30 minutos, o hasta que desaparezca el tono rosado. Mientras tanto, en un tazón pequeño, mezcle los demás ingredientes para preparar la salsa de yogur. Coloque las albóndigas en los palillos, y sirva con la salsa de yogur. Si lo desea, decore con coriandro y queso parmesano rallado.

Tiempo de preparación: 15 minutos (más un mínimo de 10 horas en el congelador) Tiempo de cocción: 1 minuto

•Para preparar la capa de frutas, en una olla pequeña, mezcle el azúcar y el agua. Caliente a fuego lento, y revuelva hasta disolver el azúcar. Retire del fuego, y deje enfriar completamente. •En el recipiente de la licuadora, agregue el jarabe enfriado, las fresas y la sal, y licúe hasta obtener una preparación suave con algo de textura. Incorpore el moscato rosado. •Para preparar la capa cremosa, coloque todos los ingredientes en una taza para medir con pico vertedor y capacidad para 4 tazas, y mezcle hasta integrar. •En moldes para paletas heladas, agregue la mezcla hasta aproximadamente la quinta parte del molde (las capas pueden ser de cualquier tamaño). Lleve al freezer hasta que la primera capa esté lo suficientemente firme para soportar otra capa (entre 60 y 90 minutos). Guarde las mezclas en el refrigerador mientras espera para colocar las capas. •Retire del freezer, y rellene otra quinta parte del molde con la mezcla opuesta. Regrese al freezer hasta que la capa esté firme. Repita los pasos hasta llenar los moldes por completo. Agregue palillos de paleta después de la tercera capa (deberá ajustarlos según el molde para paletas heladas). •Después de la capa final, congele durante, al menos, otras 6 u 8 horas antes de servir. Para servir, coloque la parte inferior de los moldes en agua caliente durante algunos segundos hasta que pueda sacar la paleta del molde. (Si utiliza moldes de papel, simplemente despréndalos). Nota: si no desea tener capas, combine las mezclas. Si lo prefiere, puede preparar una paleta con la mezcla de cada capa.

Summer is here — the time of the year when Americans love to come together for casual entertainment and great food. Nothing says summer fun quite like a friendly, come-as-you-are picnic in the backyard, at a park, on the beach, or about town at a festival or tailgate party. For a novel way to enjoy great barbecue this summer, the recipe below combines simple tortillas with Byron’s Pork BBQ, giving the traditional taco a creative twist.

Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 45 minutes Servings: 4 2pounds (1/2 tray) Byron’s Fully Cooked Pulled Pork BBQ 1 cup mayonnaise 1/4 cup red wine vinegar 2 tablespoons sugar 1 package (12 ounces) coleslaw mix 2 Granny Smith apples, washed and grated 8 six-inch corn tortillas Chopped cilantro for garnish (optional)

Heat pork BBQ according to package directions and keep warm. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In small mixing bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, vinegar and sugar. Set aside. In medium mixing bowl, toss together coleslaw mix and grated apples. Stir in mayonnaise mixture and toss to coat. Place corn tortillas on prepared baking sheet and bake about one minute until edges begin to get crispy, but tortillas are still pliable. To serve, divide warm BBQ evenly among tortillas and top with appleslaw mixture. Garnish with cilantro, if desired.

acetaminophen is the most common drug ingredient in america, found in more than 600 different prescriptions (rx) and over-the-counter (OTC) medicines. While it is safe and effective when used as directed, there is a limit to how much can be taken in one day: 4,000 mg for most adults. Taking more acetaminophen than directed is an overdose and can lead to liver damage. according to the acetaminophen awareness Coalition, sometimes people may unintentionally exceed the 4,000 mg daily dose because they don’t realize that several medicines they take -- such

as pain medications and fever reducers, cough/cold and allergy medicines, and even some sleep aids -- may all contain acetaminophen. In its report, “acetaminophen: How It’s Used, Preventing Overdose and What We Can do to Promote safe Use,” the Coalition points out three common acetaminophen dosing mistakes: * Taking the next dose too soon. * Using multiple acetaminophen-containing medicines at the same time. * Taking more than the recommended dose at a single time. “Educating patients is a key step to promoting safe acetaminophen use and preventing overdose,” said nurse practitioner anne Norman of the american association of Nurse Practitioners, a founding organization of the aaC.

“I always tell consumers to be diligent about reading their medicine labels, to know the ingredients in their medicines and to carefully follow dosing directions when taking all medicines.” so whether or not you can spell it or say it, when taking a medicine that may contain acetaminophen, the acetaminophen awareness Coalition encourages you to follow these four steps to use it safely: 1. always read and follow the medicine label. 2. Know if your medicines contain acetaminophen. 3. Never take two medicines that contain acetaminophen at the same time. 4. ask your pharmacist or other healthcare professional if you have questions.

San Jose takes new steps to address homeless encampments Veronica T. Avendaño El Observador Concerns for health, safety and overall neighborhood blight were calls to action for the city of San Jose to take steps to address the city’s homeless encampments. The City released its current Homeless Encampment report last month summarizing previous and future plans that will be implemented. The report, released every two years, found approximately 4770 homeless people, 1230, about 77 percent of those are living along creeks and streams mostly in the Guadalupe River and Coyote Creek zone. The city noted 247 encampments in their report. “The city definitely identified areas of concern and wanted to make sure that they were providing support, not just to clean up encampments, but to make sure that they are permanently removed,” said Homelessness Response Manager, Ray Bramson. The City has worked since the 1990s to clean up the encampments. In June 2013, City Council approved funding for a rapid rehousing program. Funds are for a two year period,with two million allocated each year. According to the report, the City’s interest in cleaning up the encampments stems

mostly from health and safety. The build up of trash, debris, and other pollutants in the waterways could potentially, “degrade water quality and the health of the city’s watershed,” said the report. The current report set to pin-point criteria for selecting encampments and establish a new protocol for cleanup. “There were several court cases, most notably in Los Angeles, relating to the destruction of people’s property and a question about appropriate search and seizures,” said Bramson. “Our city attorney thoroughly reviewed the cases that went to court and our internal procedures and we came up with a new strategy when we go into encampments.” The city now posts a 72 hour clean up notice to alert encampment residents of the cleanup. Before the cleanup, Outreach workers are sent to the encampments sites to discuss housing options and services for residents. “Some folks we have on the streets are chronically homeless so they have a mental or physical health condition, for those people we try to find permanent sort of housing,” said Bramson. Bramson added that the city operates under a “housing first” strategy. “When we work with individuals that have an employ-

ment history that don’t have significant chronic conditions, we’re definitely open to placing them into jobs and getting them into employment programs,” said Bramson. During the cleanup, the city uses a property crew to assess all property, using the city property guidelines before removing and disposing any trash and debris. The city then stores the property for 90 days to allow for residents to claim and pick up their belongings. Bramson noted that encampment population varies, but typically most encampment residents reflected an older homeless population. Most encampment residents have also been homeless for longer periods of time. Since the creation of the City’s Homeless Response Program, the report noted 49 encampment cleanups with 77 homeless residents now in permanent housing for the fiscal year. Bramson said the city’s current program has cleaned up 650 tons of trash and debris, a significant increase compared to last year’s 150 tons.

En junio de 2013, del Consejo de la Ciudad aprobó fondos para un programa de realojamiento rápido. los fondos son para un período de sólo dos años, con dos millones asignados cada año. de acuerdo al informe, el interés de la ciudad en la limpieza de los campamentos se deriva principalmente de la salud y la seguridad. la acumulación de basura, escombros y otros contaminantes en las corrientes de agua podría potencialmente, “degradar la calidad del agua y la salud de las cuencas hidrográficas de la ciudad”, dijo el informe.

la ciudad ahora publica un aviso de limpieza de 72 horas para alertar a los residentes de la limpieza. antes de la limpieza, agentes serán enviados a los sitios de campamentos para discutir las opciones de vivienda y servicios para los residentes.

durante la limpieza, la ciudad utiliza un equipo para evaluar todas las propiedades siguiendo las pautas de propiedad de la ciudad antes de remover y disponer de toda la basura y escombros. la ciudad entonces almacena la propiedad durante 90 días para permitir a los residentes reclamar y recoger sus pertenencias.

lOs aNGElEs brasil 2014 llegó a su fin y alemania se coronó campeona del mundo, pero aun puedes seguir inmerso en el ambiente mundialista a través de “bola- el amor, no es un juego”, una novela que contagia la emoción del futbol a través de una historia de amor inolvidable. apasionada del futbol soccer y de contar historia a través de sus escritos, la periodista y escritora lorena Flores Elizondo siempre quiso combinar ambos gustos en un solo proyecto, lo cual logró plasmar en su primera novela “bola – el amor, no es un juego”. “En sus páginas la novela habla del fútbol Mexicano, en particular del equipo Cruz azul, y también de lugares que quizás reconozcas o que gracias a las bellas descripciones lograrás imaginar – ciudades como distrito Federal, Tlaxcala, Cuernavaca, veracruz, y más. la historia es moderna, sin prejuicios, con familias no-tradicionales que viven en un mundo tan distraído por las redes sociales, celulares y cable como el nuestro”, reseña de dena burroughs.

Como periodista tuve el privilegio de estar cerca de famosos y siempre me llamaba la atención lo normales que algunos eran y lo complicada que son sus vidas a veces por el acoso de los medios. si en las familias donde no hay famosos la vida se complica con las opiniones de terceros, me imaginaba lo que difícil que eran las vidas amorosas de famosos con el factor de los medios de comunicación, los fans y ahora las redes sociales”, expresa lorena Flores Elizondo.

According to the Environmental Working Group, which assessed the safety and effectiveness of more than 1,400 sunscreens for its 2014 Guide to Sunscreens, only one in three sunscreens for sale on the shelves of American stores offer good skin protection and are free of ingredients with links to health problems.

Roddy Scheer & Doug Moss EarTHTalK skin cancer is by far the most common form of cancer in the United states, with more new cases each year than breast, prostate, lung and colon cancers combined. and the rate of newly diagnosed cases of the most deadly skin cancer, melanoma, has tripled over the last three decades. but many of the sunscreens on the market do not provide enough protection from the sun’s damaging rays. also, some of them contain chemicals that can also cause health problems in their own right. according to the non-profit Environmental Working Group (EWG), which assessed the safety and effectiveness of more than 1,400 “sPF” (sun protection factor) products for its 2014 Guide to sunscreens, only one in three sunscreens for sale on the shelves of american stores offer good skin protection and are free of ingredients with links to health issues. “That means two-thirds of the sunscreens in our analysis don’t work well enough or contain ingredients that may be toxic,” reports the group. a big part of the problem is the lack of tougher rules from the U.s. Food & drug

administration (Fda). “The Fda’s first major set of sunscreen regulations, 36 years in the making, took effect in december 2012 and proved far too weak to transform the market,” reports EWG. While the new rules did restrict some of the most egregious claims on sunscreen labels (such as the “patently false” ‘waterproof’ and ‘sweatproof’ claims) and ended the sale of powder sunscreens and towelettes that were too thin to provide protection against ultraviolet rays, they didn’t address inhalation threats from spray sunscreens or take into account the risks of exposure to so-called “nanoparticles” from zinc oxide and titanium dioxide varieties. While the Fda is currently reassessing its stance on sunscreens, EWG warns it may be a while before new rules address these and other concerns, especially given push-back from regulatoryaverse members of Congress and some manufacturers. so what’s a health-conscious sun worshipper to do about sunscreen? For starters, read labels. some common sunscreen ingredients to watch out for and avoid include: oxybenzone, which can cause allergic reactions and hormonelike effects; vitamin a (aKa retinyl palmitate), a skin irri-

tant and possible carcinogen; and fragrances which can contain allergens and chemicals. also, spray sunscreens are suspect because inhaling some of the ingredients can irritate breathing passages and even potentially compromise lung function. and EWG warns to avoid products with sPF ratings higher than 50, as their use can tempt people to apply too little and/or stay in the sun too long. sticking with products in the 15-50 sPF range and reapplying often makes much more sense. some of the best choices are those sunscreens that employ either zinc oxide or avobenzone, both which have been shown to block the most damaging ultraviolet rays effectively without the need for other potentially troublesome additives. some of the leading brands that meet EWG’s criteria for both safety and effectiveness include absolutely Natural, aubrey Organics, California baby, Elemental Herbs, Goddess Garden, Tropical sands and True Natural, among others. Find these and other winners on the shelves of natural foods retailers as well as online.

CONTENIdO laTINO sin importar cuánta precaución tomas al manejar, una llanta ponchada le puede suceder a cualquiera. y así como un seguro de auto protege tu carro, también tú como conductor puedes protegerlo, así como a otros conductores y a ti mismo, si sabes qué hacer cuando se te poncha una llanta. aquí te decimos cómo reaccionar correctamente a la hora de tener una llanta ponchada mientras manejas: 1. Mantén el control del volante. Una llanta ponchada, especialmente cuando el auto va a velocidad rápida, hará que el carro gire repentinamente. Toma el volante con fuerza y mantenlo derecho lo más que puedas. 2. No frenes demasiado rápido. aunque pisar con fuerza el freno es una reacción común, la llanta ponchada puede provocar que el carro pierda el equilibrio. retira el pie del acelerador y una vez que el carro comience a desacelerar presiona el freno lentamente. 3. Prende las luces intermitentes. En cuanto retomes el control del auto, alerta a los

demás conductores que hay un problema, por seguridad tuya y de los demás. 4. No manejes más de lo necesario. de hacerlo así el carro se puede dañar aún más. si no hay peligro, oríllate, de preferencia hacia el lado de-

recho, hasta parar en un lugar seguro. 5. Mantén la calma. ante todo, lo más importante es tu seguridad. Evita entrar en pánico para que puedas reaccionar correctamente al seguir los pasos anteriores.

(NEWsUsa) When it comes to starting the day early, finding energy fast is vital

Mario Jiménez Castillo El ObsErvadOr

Whether you’re up early for work, hitting the gym, getting your kids ready for school or just dealing with a pesky internal clock, it’s important to make the most of your mornings. Try these tips for finding your inner early bird: * don’t snooze. “When you hit the snooze button repeatedly, you’re fragmenting what little extra sleep you’re getting, so it is of poor quality,” says robert s. rosenberg, medical director of the sleep disorders Centers of Prescott valley and Flagstaff, arizona. Instead, try moving your alarm farther from your bed, so you have to stand up to turn it off. * Have a quick and hearty breakfast ready to go. studies consistently show the benefits of breakfast for promoting productivity during the day. * Consider the power of protein. according to Health.com, eggs -- and even bacon -- can be effective breakfast options to provide your body with the energy it needs to power through the day.

Júpiter es aclamado por los astrólogos y videntes como uno de los tres planetas más benéficos del sistema solar, desde siempre se ha asociado al avance, la prosperidad, los cambios oportunos y la buena fortuna. su ciclo de traslación a través del zodiaco tiene doce años de duración, por lo tanto; cada año transita durante aproximadamente 385 días en un signo específico. Este 2014, Júpiter transitará en el signo leo a partir del “16 de julio”, culminando su tránsito por dicho signo el 11 de agosto del 2015. * shift your bedtime. If by nature you are a night owl who routinely sleeps later but wants to start your day sooner, start gradually moving your bedtime earlier. The most productive early birds aren’t sleep deprived. as benjamin Franklin aptly noted, “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.”

Viento Callejero brings feel-good cumbia to your ears

Arturo Hilario El ObsErvadOr

abled them to bring their album to sonic reality.

recently EO had the chance to talk to up and coming, cumbia-enthusiastic indie band viento Callejero’s guitarist, Gloria Estrada. We discussed her influences, as well as the bands outlook, on latin-based music and their debut, self-titled album.

Estrada, a la santa Cecilia alumnus, was early on influenced by Juan Gabriel, ramon ayala and los bukis. “at the same time I liked rock music, like led zeppelin and Janis Joplin,” said Estrada. “I was a musical sponge in the sense that I was just drawn to all kinds of music”.

viento Callejero, made up Gloria Estrada on guitar, Federico Zuniga on bass and Gabriel villa on drums, was formed in early 2013 through networks of local, and not so local bands. Estrada met Federico Zuniga, the bass player, who is a native of East side san José, touring the bay area before he moved down to los angeles. The two connected once he relocated to the City of angels, where they sought out drummer Gabriel, who was working in the band Chicano batman, and created a cumbia band. The recent announcement of their freshman self-titled album was made possible because of the support of their community, the fans and other supporters who donated to the band’s Kickstarter campaign. This garnered over $9,000 in 25 days to which en-

beyond these eclectic musical beginnings Gloria went to school at University of southern California, (UsC), studying and earning her bachelor’s degree within their school of Music. “To me it was always like a way to put it all together, have it make sense. and I think because of the schooling I learned the theory”. This biculturalism of growing up latina as well as the proper musical background studies helped her become a wellrounded musician. she describes one of her previous bands, la santa Cecilia, as a “fusion of a little bit of everything, rock, bolero, cumbia, all of the above.” Now in her and her bandmates pursuits with viento Callejero she says “this project I wanted to stay more concentrated in a specific genre or style with cumbia on it. In my head I just wanted to

have feel-good music and the guys were all on the same page about what we wanted. let’s us have a good time making this music. Ultimately like a party band.” When it came to funding this start up cumbia band it was up to the band members to create music and see if those out in the world would support their efforts. Estrada notes, “although all of us have our networks…we were a fairly new band and we thought okay, this is going to take longer to realize. We had to pay some of it on our own but we were really going to need help to help catapult this a little faster. Fortunately, it was great because we put it out there and people responded.” They exceeded their $8,000 Kickstarter campaign goal by around $1,750 which goes to show the support for the music was definitely out there. The networking does come into play as the album is full of collaborations between local la bands like las Cafeteras and Quetzal as well as those far reaching ones like Pachamama Crew’s spain-born Héctor Guerra. This reinterpreted twist of traditional Cumbia is now available for your listening pleasure. viento Callejero can be heard on iTunes, spotify and in retailers near you.

histórico porque es la primera vez que una persona transgénero está nominada en una categoría como actriz y se siente maravilloso, es un sueño hecho realidad para mí, en términos personales es maravilloso, es más grande que yo», afirmó. «Es lo que es maravilloso, porque todo el ‘show’ ha sido reconocido y es muy importante que los reflectores lleguen a ti cuando eres parte de algo así, porque nosotros recibimos los guiones y hacemos una pieza de la historia cada semana, pero es la visión del ‘show’ lo que lo hace épico», señaló la intérprete en entrevista. la serie obtuvo nominaciones en las categorías de comedia como Mejor serie, Mejor actriz Principal (Taylor schi-

Cinthia Rodriguez El Observador Jorge “Gamebred” Masvidal was like any typical kid running around in his neighborhood except he wasn’t into the usual sports. At a young age he discovered wrestling and boxing. A couple years later he was getting paid to do what he does best, fight. “I didn’t have no options really, growing up. My only option was to fight,” said Jorge Masvidal during an exclusive interview with El Observador. Cuban American, Masvidal remembers being part of the wrestling program in middle school, but that only lasted about three weeks. A year later he joined a boxing gym and he started his journey into becoming a professional Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighter. Masvidal (26-8 MMA, 3-1 UFC) is slated to face Daron Cruickshank (15-4 MMA, 4-2 UFC) as the featured lightweight bout on preliminary card at UFC on Fox 12 on July 26 at the SAP Center in downtown San Jose. The main event features Matt Lawler vs Robbie Brown in a battle to determine the contender for the welterweight title. “I don’t know him. I don’t know of him. I’m not even trying to diss him, but I just don’t watch fight videos of my opponents,” said Masvidal about his opponent. “I just like to focus on me.”

San Jose California - The San Jose Earthquakes announced a new youth soccer affiliation with East Valley Futbol Club (EVFC) to create Earthquakes East Valley. Earthquakes East Valley will be the competitive arm of EVFC.  “We are extremely excited about this partnership. Many great players live in the Central Valley area and we are looking forward to working on player development there,” said Chris Leitch, technical director of the San Jose Earthquakes Academy. “EVFC’s setup is first-class and includes high quality training and game fields, a professional licensed coaching staff and college coaches involved as trainers.  You will

He has a whole crew that helps him prepare made up of trainers and sparring partners at American Top Team and Young Tigers Foundation. “The thing that has driven me since I was a kid, the reason I got into this is being number one, to be the best, to hold the belt and say I’m the best guy at 155 lbs. in the whole entire world,” said Masvidal, former AFC Welterweight Champion. While growing up, Masdival, who competed in Strikeforce before signing with the UFC, looked up to Roberto Duran and Sugar Ray Leonard. He’s has 10 wins by knockout (KO) and two by submission. One of his goals is to beat the reigning Japanese champion, Satoru Kitaoka by KO, and as many top 10 ranked fighters he can. “I love it.
