Estas mismas instituciones de enseñanza superior pueden también desempeñar un papel importante en la resolución de los problemas de salud que afectan a los latinos de forma muy diferente que a otros grupos de la población – como es el caso del cáncer. Desafiando al Fuego ¿Para qué arriesgarse? / Algunos videos en YouTube y otros sitios de redes sociales como Facebook, muestran una actividad alarmante: el famoso acto de “desafiar al fuego”. Tal desafío al fuego es un juego en el que una persona se aplica líquidos inflamables en el cuerpo y luego se prende fuego ella misma. Este acto es filmado y el video es subido a sitios de redes sociales. De la infinidad de desafíos grabados en video que han cautivado a los adolescentes, este desafío al fuego es hasta ahora el más preocupante debido a las graves consecuencias que puede acarrear. A través de la nación, muchas personas han sufrido quemaduras graves que requieren atención médica especializada.

Recent videos recorded the use of choke-holds resulting in the death of the suspect. That choke-hold was not to be used per the LA police policy manual. In another case, a citizen’s smart phone recorded a video of a CHP officer slapping a woman, who was later determined to have mental health challenges. About six years ago, a DEA agent shot a local man who ran away when ordered to stop. That DEA agent shot that man in the back killing him. Later that victim was determined not to be the suspect for which an outstanding arrest warrant existed. Recently a police officer was acquitted of the wrongful death of a teen-age boy who had brandished an assault weapon which was really a plastic toy gun. SJ Vice Mayor Madison Nguyen began her community service career by representing the Vietnamese woman who, when she brandished a vegetable knife, was fatally shot by a SJ police officer. America may be considered a nation of ‘Law & Order’ enforced by many agencies such as police, FBI, deputy sheriffs, DEA, ICE, Secret Service, and others. All are licensed to kill in the line of duty when appropriate. Everyone needs to understand this, especially youth. What people need to know and thoroughly understand is that a ‘sworn law officer’ is ‘licensed to kill’ especially when in their own judgment they are in harm’s way. And,

OPINION

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

AUGUST 15-21, 2014

until recently, any review of a police shooting was done by Internal Affairs (IA) which has ‘a conflict of interest’. Many law enforcement agencies, such as the CHP (California Highway Patrol with 10,000 officers), the largest in the nation, was not monitored nor audited at all. The public is not assured that any police shooting is objectively reviewed, analyzed, and evaluated independently with no conflict of interest. That is not the case in San Jose, where an ordinance was passed by the SJ City Council establishing the Office of the Independent Police Auditor in 1993. Later on November 6, 1993 San Jose voters approved making the IPA a permanent arm of SJ governance by approving City Charter Section 809 and Municipal Code, Section 8.04.010. Since 1993, there have been four IPA’s: Teresa GuerreroDaly (1994-2005), Barbara J. Attard (2005-2008); Shivaun Nurre (interim, 2008-2010); and Judge LaDoris H. Cordell (ret.) who has served since April 2010 as IPA. During the past 17 years, the role of the IPA has been evolving. Those wanting to know more may find the entire IPA history at http://www.sanjoseca.gov/ index.aspx?nid=702. Today, voting citizens are advised to have each and every law enforcement agency be subject to independent overview and audit if the unlawful use of force is to be mitigated. Residents must understand that when a law enforcement officer stops you, you have the right to ask for name, badge number, and to be informed about why you are being subjected to ‘an encounter’. Record that information along

with date, time and location to be used when making a report of police misconduct in a truthful and factual manner. Understand that if a majority of victims report police misconduct, those complaints actually assist police administrators to identify those officers who need more training, orientation, and discipline. If a particular officer gets too many ‘filed complaints’ the police administration has the documentation needed to remove that officer from the police force. This process removes the few ‘bad guys’ from the police staffing. Know that only a few such bad guys are responsible for many complaints of misconduct. Only a few officers abuse the power and authority of being a police officer. By this process it is possible to improve the quality of police staff while reducing the unlawful use of force. It takes the community to require that each unlawful use of force be thoroughly investigated by an auditor, who has no conflict of interest and is totally independent of the police department. That exists now in San Jose. The IPA may be reached at 408-7946226. Make the call to report any and all incidents of police misconduct. A closing suggestion: Law enforcement is a very tough profession. Be courteous and respectful when dealing with a police officer. A little kindness and consideration will make your life, and that of the police officer, quite enjoyable. You both want to have a community that has the safety and security that attracts business and commerce. Individuals thrive when confident about their safety and security.

Los tiempos modernos reclaman moderación y sentido común cuando de pestes se trata. La intención no es que “cunda el pánico” como diría el viejo y querido  personaje mexicano, la intención, y el objetivo a cumplir, debe ser que la gente se informe y actúe en consecuencia.   Las muertes causadas por el Ébola en África tienen en alerta a los sistemas sanitarios de mundo y Estados Unidos, no puede ser la excepción. ¿La razón? El brote que comenzó el pasado mes de marzo ha causado más de 700 muertes  en África Occidental.   Pero vamos por partes, primero: ¿Qué es el Ébola?   Ébola es una fiebre hemorrágica viral. Usualmente severa y fatal en humanos y primates como gorilas, micos y chimpancés, de acuerdo con la definición expuesta por Los Centros de Control de Enfermedades de Estados Unidos CDC.   La fiebre, que toma su nombre del Rio Ébola, en la República Democrática del Congo donde fue identificada la enfermedad por primera vez, es generado por una serie de virus de la familia de los llamados Filoviridae, que

se han dado en llamar Ébola – virus.   ¿Y cómo se transmite?   Esa es la cosa. Debido a que la reserva natural de virus transmisores no ha sido aún probada, la forma en la que el virus se transmite a un humano al comienzo de un brote es desconocida. Sin embargo, la infección de humano a humano funciona de diferentes formas, así: cuando hay contacto directo con la sangre o las secreciones de una persona infectada o con objetos, como agujas, que hayan sido contaminados por secreciones infectadas.   Durante un brote de Ébola la infección se puede transmitir rápidamente en los centros de salud, hospitales y clínicas, si el personal no desinfecta apropiadamente los instrumentos o no usa el equipo de protección adecuado, como máscaras, guantes y trajes especiales.   Cuando hay infección los síntomas suelen comenzar en cualquier momento entre los dos y los 21 días siguientes a la exposición al virus y son: fiebre, dolor de cabeza, dolores musculares, debilidad, dolor de estómago, diarrea, vómito y falta de apetito. Algunos pacientes pueden presentar también erupciones, ojos rojos, hipo, tos, dolor en el pecho y la garganta, dificultad para respirar y tragar

3

y hemorragias internas y externas.   Muchas de las personas que se contaminan con el virus transmisor del Ébola logran recuperarse, otros no. Las razones por las que esto ocurre no han sido explicadas aun. Sin embargo, se sabe que los pacientes que mueren, por lo general, no desarrollan una respuesta inmune adecuada contra el virus.   Es muy importante saber que la fiebre no se transmite a través del aire, como las enfermedades respiratorias o a través de alimentos o agua contaminados.   Las autoridades estadounidenses de salud emitieron el pasado 31 de Julio una alerta invitando a sus ciudadanos a evitar viajes innecesarios a Guinea, Liberia y Sierra Leona. Es importante recordar que los brotes se han presentado también en Nigeria, República Democrática del Congo, Sudan de Sur, Gabón, Costa de Marfil, Uganda y Sur África.   Conocidos los hechos, es claro que al asunto del Ébola hay que ponerle atención, sobre todo si trabajamos en el sector de la salud o debemos viajar a alguno  de los países de alto riesgo, de lo contrario, por ahora,  no hay nada que temer.

AUGUST 15-21, 2014

SANTA CLARA COUNTY La Junta de Supervisores del Condado de Santa Clara le pidió esta semana a la administración del Condado trabajar con organizaciones comunitarias locales para crear un programa de familias anfitrionas para refugiados menores de edad que han llegado a Estados Unidos sin un acompañante adulto.  Esta acción responde  a la advertencia de una crisis humanitaria hecha por la congresista Zoe Lofgren sobre la situación de menores de edad refugiados no acompañados alojados en albergues cerca de la frontera.  La Oficina de Aduanas y la Patrulla Fronteriza estiman que más de 90,000 niños no acompañados cruzarán la frontera con Estados Unidos en 2014. Este es un número casi tres veces mayor que en 2013. El voto de la Junta de Supervisores en este asunto fue cuatro a favor, uno en contra.

COMMUNITY

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

  De acuerdo con el reporte de una delegación de la Conferencia de Obispos Católicos de Estados Unidos que viajó a Centroamérica en 2013, múltiples factores contribuyen al incremento de la inmigración infantil forzada.  Sin embargo, “un factor ha jugado un papel decisivo en los años más recientes: la violencia generalizada a nivel estatal y local, y el quebrantamiento de leyes que amenazan la seguridad de los ciudadanos y crea una cultura de miedo y desesperanza.”   “Lo que le ha pasado a estos niños me rompe el corazón,” dijo la Supervisora Cindy Chavez. “Sus madres tomaron la decisión desgarradora que debió tomar la madre de Moisés en la Biblia, de sacarlos de los peligros que enfrentan donde viven y orar para que lleguen a un mejor lugar.  Nosotros debemos mostrar la compasión de la hija del faraón cuando ella cuidó a Moisés, y asegurarnos

que éste es un lugar mejor para estos niños.”   El 26 de Agosto la administración del Condado presentará un reporte sobre su plan de implementación que incluye el modelo de servicio con socios de la comunidad, información sobre el proceso para obtener la aprobación y el compromiso financiero por parte del gobierno estatal y federal, y plan para reclutamiento y apoyo a familias anfitrionas. El reporte también incluiría la logística de transporte y ubicación de los niños en el Condado de Santa Clara y estrategias para reunificar a los niños con sus familias, en cooperación con la Oficina federal para el Asentamiento de Refugiados. La Junta de Supervisores le pidió a la Oficina del Consejero Legal del Condado que también presente un reporte sobre sus esfuerzos para encontrar abogados pro bono (Ad Honorem/gratis) para la representación legal de los niños.

Un modelo de “familia anfitriona” sería similar al de un programa de intercambio estudiantil.  Familias voluntarias serían examinadas y los niños evaluados y ubicados en hogares donde reciban apoyo, vivienda y cuidado diario.  El modelo de familia anfitriona es diferente al del actual sistema de hogares de crianza y no interfiere ni utiliza los recursos para los hogares de crianza. A diferencia del modelo de hogar de crianza, las familias de estos niños no renuncian a sus derechos como padres y sus casos están pendientes en una corte de refugiados, no una corte juvenil.     El Supervisor Mike Wasserman, Presidente de la Junta de Supervisores del Condado de Santa Clara, votó contra el programa, indicando que “yo no puedo apoyar la creación de un nuevo programa y estirar nuestros recursos, cuando sé que todavía existen muchas necesi-

dades por satisfacer en nuestra comunidad.”    El programa para albergar niños refugiados no acompañados será desarrollado en colaboración con organizaciones comunitarias que actualmente proveen servicios relacionados con sus necesidades, incluyendo  Bill Wilson Center, Catholic Charities, EMQ Families First, Community Health Partnership, Center for Employment Training (CET), Working Partnerships USA, Services Refugee Rights & Education Network (SIREN), y Unity Care.    “En los últimos diez años Caridades Catolicas del Condado de Santa Clara ha brindado hogares seguros y la oportunidad de una nueva vida a 117 niños no acompañados que provienen de diferentes partes del mundo,’ dijo el Director Ejecutivo de Caridades Católicas Gregory Kepferle. “Aunque el future no sigue siendo claro para los ni-

5

ños que están llegando a nuestro país, sabemos que para un niño asustado, nuestra bienvenida compasiva es un milagro y un regalo sin precio para sus familias.  Nosotros cuidaremos a esos niños. Eso es lo correcto.”   “Nosotros trabajamos con jóvenes indigentes todos los días y vemos las dificultades que enfrentan,” dijo Sparky Harlan, Directora Executiva del Bill Wilson Center.  “Nuestra meta es reunir rápidamente a estos niños con sus familias y asegurarnos que sean tratados humanamente mientras están en nuestro país.”   El costo estimado de crear un programa de familias anfitrionas es $200,000 dólares. El costo mensual estimado de ubicar a un niño en un hogar es $2,000 dólares. Si el programa es aprobado por la Junta de Supervisores el 26 de Agosto, el Condado empezará a prepararse para ubicar hasta 50 niños.

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

para que vivan en forma más saludable, especialmente ahora que ya está por comenzar el nuevo año escolar. A continuación, dos ejemplos del contenido de este folleto.Elegir alimentos y bebidas saludables • Cubre la mitad de tu plato con frutas y verduras. Prueba verduras de color verde oscuro, rojo y anaranjado porque tienen altos niveles de nutrientes necesarios, tales como vitamina C, calcio y fibra. • Toma agua o leche baja en grasa o descremada y evita las bebidas azucaradas como las sodas o bebidas energizantes. Esto te ayuda a consumir menos calorías provenientes de azúcar agregada, que da energía pero pocos o ningún nutriente. • Evita comer esas comidas rápidas y convenientes. Realizar más actividad física • Comprométete a realizar actividad física 60 minutos por día. No importa si no puedes hacerlo todo de una sola vez. Puedes estar activo por solo 10 minutos, varias veces al día. • Elige actividades que te gustan. Trata de jugar fútbol o básquetbol o tomar una caminata con tus amistades. • Trata de ir a la escuela caminando o en bicicleta. Pero asegúrate de mantenerte a salvo. Para más consejos, los adolescentes pueden consultar el folleto “¡Hazte cargo de tu salud! Guía para jóvenes” de WIN. Este folleto trae más ideas sobre el consumo de alimentos y bebidas saludables y sobre cómo mantenerse físicamente activo; el folleto trae además una herramienta para planear comidas saludables y una página repleta de consejos que los adolescentes pueden colocar en sus casilleros para que no se olviden de continuar con sus hábitos saludables.

AMERICAN COUNSELING ASSOCIATION Peer pressure is probably the most important influence in your teenager’s life. While parental opinions certainly are considered (if only because of the consequences of ignoring them), it’s more often the opinions and actions of peers that help teens decide virtually everything from hairstyles to clothing choices to academic efforts. Often, peer pressure is a good thing that can lead to involvement in sports, religious activities and academic excellence. But peer pressure can also be a negative, especially for a teen lacking in self-confidence and selfesteem yet anxious to be accepted by others. Negative peer pressure can result in trying to be part of a group rebelling against those things (such as school) about which the teen feels less confident. As a parent, you can help your child overcome such negative peer pressure. Start by helping build your teen’s self-confidence and positive self-image. Try to limit your criticism while looking for positive accomplishments and chances to praise jobs well done. You also want to be genuinely interested in your teen’s life. Go beyond the common “who, what, where” questions to find out what your teenager really is doing and feeling. Learn to respect what your

teen is thinking even if it is counter to your point of view. And yes, getting most teens to open up can be difficult, but if you’re persistent, and show appreciation when things are shared, your teen will eventually become more open with you. Confronting problems as they arise can also help combat negative peer pressure. Try to understand your teen’s need for certain friends, but feel free to express your concerns, and your reasons for them, about such friends. And sometimes it’s simply necessary to set rules and boundaries. While “forbidding” certain friends seldom works, you can restrict the time spent with the most worrisome of them and insist on it being in supervised settings. It also helps to strengthen the family relationship. Insist that homework and chores be done. Set curfews and stick to them. Handle small problems quickly, before they become big ones. Spend time with your teen, establish regular dinner hours and find quiet times when you can really talk with one another. Not all peer pressure is negative, but part of your parental responsibility is helping your teen learn how to evaluate friendships. You need to help your teen identify peers who provide real friendship and positive benefits.

Jason Alderman PRACTICAL MONEY A los padres con hijos que ingresen a la universidad este otoño: Seguramente se están preparando para gastar una gran cantidad de dinero en matrículas, alojamiento y miles de otras necesidades a lo largo de los próximos años. Pero antes de despedirse de su hijo, asegúrese de darle un regalo que lo conduzca por el camino de la seguridad financiera: asegúrese de que entienda bien cómo funciona el crédito. El primer paso para administrar las finanzas personales es saber manejar bien la cuenta corriente y la tarjeta de débito. Estos son algunos consejos que le puede dar: • Buscar un banco o cooperativa de crédito que no cobre comisión mensual, que no exija un saldo mínimo y que tenga cajeros automáticos cerca para no tener que ir a otros cajeros y pagar la comisión. • Anotar todas las transacciones en un registro de cheques o en una herramienta para hacer presupuestos como Mint.com, y revisar la cuenta por internet al menos una vez por semana para ver cuándo se debitan los depósitos, cheques, compras y pagos automáticos. • Evitar librar cheques o hacer transacciones con tar-

jeta de débito si el saldo de la cuenta no los cubre –esas transacciones suelen debitarse instantáneamente.

mes crediticios de ambos, por lo que es sumamente importante controlar la cuenta con cuidado.

Una buena forma de generar antecedentes crediticios sólidos es demostrar responsabilidad con el uso de la tarjeta de crédito. Pero los menores de 21 años deben tener una cuenta de tarjeta de crédito junto a un padre u otro adulto responsable como co-titular a menos que puedan demostrar ingresos suficientes para pagar la deuda. Entonces, ¿cómo pueden los padres ayudar a sus hijos a comenzar a generar su propio historial crediticio si no pueden abrir su propia cuenta? Un par de alternativas son: • Nómbrelo usuario autorizado de alguna de sus cuentas. Su hijo tendrá su propia tarjeta y usted podrá limitar el monto que pueda gastar. Los usuarios autorizados no son legalmente responsables por el pago del saldo adeudado –esa es su responsabilidad, por eso, vaya con cuidado. • Puede agregarlo como cotitular de una cuenta nueva o que ya tenga –preferentemente de una con poco límite de crédito. Los co-titulares son igualmente responsables por el saldo de la cuenta. • Recuerde, toda actividad de la cuenta, buena o mala, se verá reflejada en los infor-

Si sus hijos todavía no han demostrado tener madurez financiera, tal vez no estén listos para tener una tarjeta de crédito o préstamo no garantizado. Pero hay otras alternativas: • Una tarjeta de crédito con garantía, en la que los usuarios pueden gastar solo hasta el monto depositado al abrir la cuenta. Las compras se cargan contra el límite del crédito renovable de la cuenta. A medida que se cancela el saldo, aumenta el crédito disponible, al igual que con las tarjetas de crédito comunes. Después de un período de pagos en tiempo y forma, pida al prestamista que la convierta en una tarjeta no garantizada o, al menos, que añada un monto no garantizado a la cuenta. • Una tarjeta de débito prepaga, en la que usted carga la tarjeta con dinero de antemano y sus hijos la utilizan para hacer compras o retirar dinero del cajero automático. Usted controla la actividad de la cuenta por internet o por teléfono. • Para ambas opciones se pueden aplicar comisiones y restricciones, por lo que recomiendo buscar la que le ofrezca las mejores condiciones.

(BPT) Smartphones have become an essential part of everyday life; from texting and email to social media, Americans rely heavily on their mobile devices. If your mobile phone was taken away, how long could you survive without it? The answer may surprise you: nearly half (47 percent) of U.S. consumers polled say they could not go more than one day without their smartphone, according to the inaugural Bank of America Trends in Consumer Mobility Report. An overwhelming majority (85 percent) say they check their phones at least a few times a day, while more than one-third (35 percent) admit to constantly checking their mobile device. The survey, which explored mobile trends and banking behaviors among adults across the country, found the need for constant connectivity also extends to banking. Of those respondents who said they use their phones for mobile banking, almost onethird (31 percent) say they log on at least once a day, and more than four out of five (82

percent) access their accounts at least once a week or more. The report revealed further interesting insights into consumer mobile banking behaviors and preferences, including: * Mobile banking is on the rise. More than half (62 percent) of respondents have at least tried mobile banking, while an overwhelming majority (90 percent) are using online banking. When using their bank’s mobile app, U.S. consumers most commonly check their balance, transfer funds between accounts and pay bills. * Sophisticated banking transactions becoming more prevalent on mobile devices. Consumers are also using their smartphones for more complex transactions, including mobile check deposit. Nearly six in 10 (58 percent) respondents have used mobile check deposit, and 38 percent use it frequently. “Our customers appreciate the convenience of being able to complete their deposit anytime, anywhere and are depositing an average of 170 thousand checks via mobile device every

9

day,” says Marc Warshawsky, mobile solutions executive at Bank of America. * Consumers prefer a mix of banking options. Mobile and online banking are becoming more widely used, but visits to bank branches are still common. The survey found that 84 percent of respondents have visited a bank branch within the past six months. Most commonly, Americans make a trip to the bank to make a deposit, withdraw funds and speak with a banking associate. However, just 23 percent of respondents say they complete the majority of their banking transactions at a branch. Nearly half (47 percent) report turning to mobile or online banking as their preferred method. * Consumers comfortable with added security measures. In the next two years, 60 percent of consumers say they would be comfortable with a fingerprint scan/swipe security feature to gain access to their mobile banking app. Nearly one-third expressed comfort with retina scans (32 percent) and voice recognition (33 percent).

Cinthia Rodriguez EL OBSERVADOR Not a stranger to Bay Area jazz festivals, musician Pete Escovedo will once again take the stage at next week’s Music in the Park at St. James Park in downtown San Jose. He’s been working as much as he can putting a new CD together with his orchestra, trying to create something different, but also rewarding to his fans. He’s also been working on his autobiography, which he plans to have ready by the end of this year. With all that going on, he

EO: What are you and your

band up to now?

Escovedo: I’m combining a couple of things together. I think for the most part, people that know my history, me and my brother Coke had a band called Azteca back in the 70’s, and with the orchestra I do more Latin jazz than anything but now I’m kind of combining the two styles of music. So I’m putting together sort of a different kind of band that can play the Azteca songs and can do Latin jazz. Combining

the two has been interesting. I’m really enjoying it, because some of that music that we played back in the 70’s still holds up today. It’s interesting stuff that we did back then so it’s a lot of fun to play those songs. By combining both styles, it makes for a better sound, a better presentation of what I do. It’s working out fine. EO: You’ve been on stage with big names. What have been some of your favorite moments?

Escovedo: When I was younger and just starting out, I was very privileged to meet Tito Puente. I met him when I was like 18 or 19 years old and we have been friends ever since then, but the very first time I had a chance to play with him that was one of the great thrills of my life, to be able to play with a person that I idolized and looked up to for so many years. We did a video and actually recorded together. All of that was such a great honor for me; to not only know him but to perform with him. EO: You were in Japan

because your daughter was playing. How cool is that? To have your kids doing what you do? Escovedo: You want your kids to grow up and just be a joy to your life and they have certainly been a joy to my life. My kids, they all play music, they are all incredible musicians, they have been in the

business a long time, they have played with so many great people, they have accomplished so much on their own, each and every one of them. For me to get a chance to play with them, when we do perform together it is such a blessing for me, just looking back at them when they were kids, now they are adults and are great musicians. It’s just a dream come true. EO: You are coming back next week to the bay area? How does that feel? Escovedo: I am throwing a couple of shows in the bay area. My first one is in San Jose at the park, Music in the Park. I’m doing that. And then on the 24th, I play at the Filoli Mansion in Woodside. I’m looking forward to that. In September I’m doing the Monterey jazz festival, which actually this would be the first time that I will play the Monterey jazz festival with my own orchestra. I’m really looking forward to that. EO: So this might be a hard

question to answer, but if you weren’t a musician what do you think you would be doing?

Escovedo: I definitely know what I would be doing. I would be spending more time on my artwork. I actually started painting when I was in high school. I had a wonderful art teacher, she took a very close liking to me and helped me and she set up a scholarship

for me and just everything and I was headed that way. She actually got me an apprentice job with an advertising company to do the billboards, paint the billboards. I mean I was all set, I had a job and I had a scholarship to go to college. I was all set. I mean I dropped all of that to play music. If I hadn’t chosen that road, I would have definitely chosen to be an artist. I still paint and still do exhibits and some of my stuff has been in some galleries. And of course I have done a lot of my own illustrations on my CDs. I recently just did illustrations for the Salsa de la Bahia with Wayne Wallace. It took me a little over a year, but I finally finished all the artwork at the Cupertino Inn. Which is a hotel over by the Apple Corporation in Cupertino. I had a great time doing that. A little different from the style of art that I do. I generally just paint what I feel, but I had to kind of mellow down my feelings to do stuff in the hotel. I got to to do something that these people can go to sleep. If they look at something I don’t want them to trip out. The woman who ran the hotel, she was so nice and she gave me a free hand. She said to just do what you think is appropriate. She loved everything I did. All my work is in there. In every room. I always tell people if you want to spend the night with Pete Escovedo go to that hotel. You won’t regret it.

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR Kiwanis Club, Pueblo de San Jose’s President introduced Ms. Teresa Castellanos, Coordinator, Immigrant Relations & Integration Services (IRIS), County of Santa Clara, as the keynote speaker of their meeting on August 12. Ms. Castellanos began her presentation by asking those present “What is it that you want to learn about IRIS?” She took notes and responded to each and every concern during her presentation. What all learned was an entirely new perspective about the “Immigration Issues”. According to Castellanos, the current ‘broken system’ has not happened because of neglect by many stakeholders. The largest undocumented immigrant population in the County of Santa Clara are those who entered this

nation legally using an H-!B visa which has expired. These undocumented individuals come mainly from India and China. “I do not understand why mainstream media focuses upon the undocumented Mexican immigrant when there exist a very large diverse group of immigrants here in this county. It is these folks who are ‘creative hard workers’ whose efforts have benefitted many high tech firms located here. A very diverse immigrant population exists in this county, which is one of the main reasons why Silicon Valley is the creative innovative center of the American/ global economy. Many of these undocumented individuals entered America via Canada, the Carribean Islands, and directly from Europe, Asia, or South America. Yet mainstream media consistently presents the undocumented immigrant news as if only Mexicans, Central

or South America were the major source of immigrants. That is not so.”

“Our nation’s population is an immigrant population’ whose work product and services benefit the local commercial establishments,” said Castellanos.

IRIS was established 18 years ago by the Board of Supervisors, County of Santa Clara. It was created to assist those immigrants who make up one-third of the current population of the County of Santa Clara. And their children are beginning to make up the second one-third of the local population.

The unaccompanied children who surrender to the border patrol is a phenomenon which has been going on for years, but only recently at very high numbers. The current 57,000 is projected to become 90,000 in the next few years. Understand that those from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatamala are refugees trying to escape Cartels and gangs in these areas where past American foreign policy destabilized the local society and its governance. And many are kids whose adult parents came to America to work and left their kids in the care of other family members.

This group impacts the local school system (education) and the health care systems. And those skilled workers, who are recruited by local commercial interests, are janitors, high-tech skilled workers, farm workers, and health care service workers whose visas expire, and therefore these become part ot the ‘undocumented statistics’ which many erroneously consider to be 100% Mexican or Latino.

Bob Bravo, a retired correctional officer, said, “It is ridiculous to ask a 10 year old

child to provide information which establishes that child as a refugee. Those kids do not have the information nor reasoning capability to represent themeslves properly before a court judge. And neither do those lawyers who are being recruited to represent those kids as their clients. Those kids are not capable of being criminals.” “Many come here to work because America has been involved in Mexico, Central America and South America with foreign policies which destabilize their governments or their economy. So basically, we have created this current humanitarian challenge. One way to deal with the illegal drug trade which the Cartels operate is to have domestic programs which reduce the market for illegal drugs,” said Gloria Torres.  An extensive discussion followed wherein at least seven individuals related their

personal childhood story of being brought to America without “papers”. Many just tagged along as small children with the adults who had obtained legal entry documents. The discussion revealed that the challenges of dealing with immigrants impacts local schools (education system), health & medical care services; social and mental health services; the local work force; and as a result the local economy. Many entrepreneurs exploit the undocumented worker and do their best to ensure that the immigration issues are not resolved. Maria Cruz said, “Do not forget that our U.S. Congress has done nothing to resolve this complex situation. Many proposals made by specific congress members are simply political propaganda. They are not aware of the human misery.”

Take advantage of the longer, warmer days before winter arrives by whipping up tasty grilled meals that are delicious and healthy for the whole family. Using lean cuts of beef is a great way to cut down calories and fat, but it doesn’t have to reduce the grilled flavors you love.

Grilled Steak Fajitas Start to finish: 2 hours and 30 minutes Servings: 8 1 pound Laura’s Lean Beef ribeye steak (may substitute strip, sirloin or flank) 1 teaspoon black pepper 1/2 teaspoon cumin 1/2 teaspoon chili powder 1 green bell pepper 1 red bell pepper 1 medium-hot Poblano pepper, dark green and triangular 1 medium yellow onion 8 fat-free flour tortillas

•At least two hours before dinner, dust steak with freshly ground black pepper, cumin and chili powder. Let it sit in refrigerator so flavors can penetrate meat. •Cut peppers into large segments, discarding ribs and seeds. Chop onion into thick slices, making sure not to pull rings apart. •Place peppers and onion slices on grill over medium heat; cover and roast by turning frequently until covered with dark spots, but not burnt. Remove from grill and allow to cool, about four minutes. Pull off waxy-papery skins of peppers and slice crosswise into strips. Break onion slices into rings and mix with peppers in serving bowl. •Place steak on the grill, turning frequently. Cook until desired level of doneness. Remove from grill and cut diagonally into thin slices. •Warm tortillas on edge of grill, keeping them away from direct heat, to warm and soften. Remove from grill. •Roll several slices of steak and pieces of peppers and onions into tortillas to serve. (FAMILY FEATURES)

The recycling loop depends upon governments, businesses, and consumers choosing to purchase products and packaging with recycled content. The decision to “buy recycled” closes the recycling loop. Some products, like aluminum and steel cans, can be recycled again and again, while others, like paper, may be recycled once into bathroom tissue and then reach the end of its life.

Fuel Cell cars have not caught on because creating hydrogen has turned out to be highly inefficient compared to other readily available fuels and would also require an enormous and costly infrastructure. Pictured: A demonstration Honda FCX Clarity produced in 2008. Credit: JMR Photography.

Roddy Scheer & Dougss EARTHTALK A decade ago cars powered by fuel cells seemed like the future of green automotive travel, but many analysts now think otherwise. These futuristic cars run on hydrogen fuel and emit only heat and water vapor. Their engines mix hydrogen, stored on-board in fuel tanks much like gas tanks, with oxygen in the air to produce electricity that powers the drive train. Environmentalists love the idea of fuel cell cars given their lack of greenhouse gas emissions and reliance on a renewable fuel that can be produced domestically. Despite these benefits, fuel cell cars have not caught on and skeptics wonder if they ever will. One big hurdle is that creating hydrogen fuel turns out to be highly inefficient compared to other readily available fuels. According to Richard Gilbert, co-author of Transport Revolutions: Moving People and Freight Without Oil, the creation of hydrogen gas uses about half the energy it creates. Half of this resulting energy then goes to the conversion of hydrogen back into electricity

within fuel cells. The result is that “only a quarter of the initially available energy reaches the electric motor.” In fact, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles’ efficiency varies between 18 and 20 percent, while battery electric vehicles have 77-80 percent efficiency.

Not only are fuel cells less efficient than internal combustion engines, their implementation on a wide scale would create enormous infrastructure costs. New infrastructure would be required from “wells to wheels.” Also, fuel cell motors wear out five times faster than internal combustion engines, thereby resulting in a shorter car life and more maintenance. Hydrogen’s small size and extreme reactivity results in brittle metal and engines prone to leaking, which reduces both environmental and practical benefits. But many still consider fuel cell cars a viable option. “Hydrogen is the key to sustainable transportation because it can be produced in virtually unlimited quantities from renewable resources and because its use is nearly pollution-free,” says the nonprofit INFORM. A significant financial commitment to hydrogen research, says

the group, could result in a variety of vehicles fueled by hydrogen that perform as well or better than gasoline vehicles, with a fraction of the environmental impact. INFORM adds that transitioning to hydrogen could be achieved without new federal dollars if we reallocate funds within the national energy program from nuclear and fossil fuels. “The opportunities for innovation and economic growth in hydrogen energy are largely untapped, and many nations are working to establish an early position in this fledgling field.” According to INFORM, Germany and Japan are far ahead of the U.S. in hydrogen development. The group would like to see U.S. policymakers encourage more development of fuel cells so we have options open in a fasttransitioning energy future. Meanwhile, sales of battery electric and hybrid vehicles continue to soar—rising 228 percent in 2013 alone. There are currently no new fuel cell vehicles for sale at American auto dealers, although Honda has hinted that it could have its FCX fuel cell engine ready for the mass market by 2018.

n THE EXPENDABLES 3, Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team come face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables -- but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic oldschool style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables’ most personal battle yet.

t’s the ultimate buddy cop movie except for one thing: they’re not cops. When two struggling pals dress as police officers for a costume party, they become neighborhood sensations. But when these newly-minted “heroes” get tangled in a real life web of mobsters and dirty detectives, they must put their fake badges on the line.

T

he haunting story of THE GIVER centers on Jonas (Brenton Thwaites), a young man who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Yet as he begins to spend time with The Giver ( Jeff Bridges), who is the sole keeper of all the community’s memories, Jonas quickly begins to discover the dark and deadly truths of his community’s secret past. With this newfound power of knowledge, he realizes that the stakes are higher than imagined – a matter of life and death for himself and those he loves most. At extreme odds, Jonas knows that he must escape their world to protect them all – a challenge that no one has ever succeeded at before.

Veronica T. Avendaño EL OBSERVADOR San Francisco’s Outside Lands three day festival is known for its musical acts, but this year food sales from vendors hit a record high. Boasting a roster of more than 50 food vendors, approximately 65 thousand festival goers had their pick of food vendors, wine, and beer samplings. This year an official festival ice cream flavor was concocted for patrons to enjoy. I arrived a little late to the festival’s opening day, Friday, August 8, but naturally I headed to my go-to-food when I can’t decide what to eat-pizza. Never underestimate the power of the pie, some patrons even waited an hour for their orders to come out of the oven. Ever since my trip to Italy as a junior in high school, I’ve had a slight obsession to find a slice that would match the slice I ate in Naples. I ordered a $12 margherita half pizza, (yes, half, I was ready to munch), from Casey’s Pizza food truck, which specializes in Nea-

politan style. Kudos to you Casey’s Pizza, you’re the closest pie to Naples that I’ve ever eaten. For those unfamiliar with a margherita pizza, it’s main toppings, are simple: tomatoes, light cheese, and basil. The folks at Casey’s didn’t drown or overpower my pizza in basil and seasonings, keeping it light and airy, which I much appreciated. One of my guilty pleasure foods is french fries. Once the festival food vendor list was released, the first thing I looked for is what french fries I need to try first. Pastrami fries from Wise Sons Deli, came into my life that weekend. Chives, meat, relish, and cheese sprinkled over hot fries took a different twist to the fries with meat concept that SoCal has so graciously embraced. Most food vendors present have their own local restaurant or food truck, but one of the festival’s breakout stars, the highbrow spaghetti sloppy joe actually comes from a higher end restaurant, AQ. The sandwich is the brainchild of restaurant co-owner and chef, Mark Liberman.

Liberman said the creation came when hunger struck at the end of a late shift. The sandwich fixings were created from an odd combination of the night’s leftovers, the rest is foodie history. The insides include: spaghetti, pork, mozzarella cheese, and vegetables on the side. Pork isn’t my favorite, but this time the well seasoned swine complimented the spaghetti well. I heard of festival talk of a sushi burrito, sadly I just couldn’t wait in the line long enough to be served a mainly rice composed roll. I wandered a few food tents over to discover an arepas vendor. An arepa is a South American flatbread usually made from maize dough stuffed with any filling from meat, cheese or jelly (breakfast style). San FranciscoMission District’s, Pica Pica Arepa Kitchen, sold Venezuelan style chicken, veggie, and pork arepas for $10. Again, I opted for the pork version. If they had a carne asada arepa that day, I would have fallen in love. Thank you, Pica Pica for being my quickest food service expe-

rience of the entire festival. The arepa bread was fresh, warm, and reminded me a bit of cornbread mixed with what Central American’s like myself consider a quesadilla (hint: this type of quesadilla looks like bread). Finally, dessert. Earlier, I mentioned a special craft ice cream, “chocolate gold rush,” was created for Outside Lands by Guittard Chocolate Company and Humphry Slocombe. For those that know me personally, I dislike chocolate ice cream since it never

tastes chocolatey enough for me. This was not the case that day. The extreme chocolate flavor is credited to the long running, reputable, Guittard Chocolate Company. The ice cream was infused with chocolate covered waffle cones. All in all, I wish I had more room in my belly and an infinite amount of time to hit each and every booth. This year, bay area food vendors fell in love with the pig, and served an array of odd or classic pork dishes, like Bacon Bacon’s choco-

late covered bacon. LatinAsian fusion food was also a food trend this year. Nobe served up Ramenburgers, sushi burritos and Namu Street Food mixed Korean food and created their own taco, just to name a couple fusions. Food vendors this year became more gluten conscious, as more gluten free menu items were widely available. If you didn’t spend some time this year sampling food, carve out some time in your festival schedule and arrive with an empty stomach next time.

August 23 & 24 First City Festival is named after Monterey’s claim as the official “first capital” of California. Monterey was home to the state’s first theatre, public library, publicly funded school, printing press, and newspaper. The two-day festival will take place on August 23 & 24 at the Monterey County Fair and Event Center. Single-day tickets are available and are on sale. Some of the artists include Beck, The National, Phantogram, The Naked and Famous, Tokyo Police Club, Dawes, Coco Rosie, and many.

Mario Jiménez Castillo EL OBSERVADOR Últimamente hemos visto en las noticias acontecimientos poco afortunados que dejan ver la crueldad de algunas personas y su trato con los animales. Hace un par de semanas un hombre joven poco sensato, gravó el momento en que lanzaba con un puntapié a una ardilla en el cañón de Colorado. Y unos días atrás una persona le disparó a un perro chihuahua, la pregunta es ¿Por qué lo hacen? Es realmente cruel lo que está sucediendo en el mundo, incluso en los países más cultos y desarrollados, muchos animales sufren la barbarie de la falta de compasión y la crueldad a la que son expuestos, a algunos les arrancan la piel aún estando vivos para así fabricar abrigos que usan mujeres pomposas. Afortunadamente en Estados Unidos y otras

naciones existen varias asociaciones que luchan por los derechos de los animales por ejemplo The Humane Society y la Sociedad Protectora de Animales con activistas en todo el mundo. Brenda Wilson, es una de esas personas bondadosas que brinda parte de su tiempo como voluntaria en el Área de la Bahía, con sentimientos a flor de piel nos relató del abuso y crueldad a los que son expuestos millares de animales diariamente. Brenda cree absolutamente que se deben prohibir los espectáculos de animales en los circos. La mayoría de estos animales son tratados de forma negligente, maltratados, mal alimentados, muchos de ellos mueren de tristeza. Pero por otro lado hay gente maravillosa, gente llena de amor y compasión que aman y respetan los derechos de los

No tenga pájaros enjaulados ni peces en peceras de cristal, estos animalitos deben estar libres, volar adónde quieren o nadar por todas partes. Acaso nos gustaría estar enjaulados, por supuesto que no. Es hora que entendamos que los animales también tienen sentimientos y tienen tanto derecho como nosotros de vivir libremente en nuestro planeta. animales, gente que sabe la realidad y ésta es que los animales tienen sentimientos. Manuel Venegas es un joven universitario ejemplar quién brinda su apoyo a las asociaciones que luchan porque se respeten los derechos de los animales. Manuel nos comentó que es necesario hacer una cam-

paña nacional y mundial que le enseñe a la gente el terror a la que son expuestos muchos animales alrededor del planeta. Es necesario educar y concienciar a la gente para que se vuelva más compasiva y se involucren en el tema. Si tiene una mascota y por algún motivo ya no puede tenerla en casa, no le abandone, trate de ubicarle en otro

hogar dónde pueda recibir amor y cuidados. Es triste observar como en nuestra área, muchos animales son abandonados a su suerte en las calles, autopistas y otros sitios, recalcó Manuel. Resulta tan paradójico creer que estamos en el tope de la civilización, en el tope de

Abramos nuestros corazones a la compasión y al amor, seamos benefactores de la fauna en general e ilustremos a otros para que la crueldad en contra de los animales cese de manera definitiva. Convirtámonos en benefactores de la naturaleza y respetemos los derechos y la vida de esos seres tan hermosos y especiales que son los animales.

Veronica T. Avendaño EL OBSERVADOR Con el clima inusualmente caliente este año, el sudor y el maquillaje de cara no se mezclan. Urban Decay lanzó unas nuevas adiciones a su línea, Naked Skin (Piel Desnuda) para personas que, como yo, quieren una rutina básica de maquillaje durante el verano. Durante los últimos meses, yo probe el balm(crema) de la línea, en “Illuminating.” Yo prefiero usar muy poco fundacion con minima cobertura. Con una rutina simple de todos los días, el producto funciona bien para mi. Cuando lo use por primera vez, no me gusto porque el producto parace como anaranjado, marrón, infindido con brillo. No pense que seria mezclado bien con mi tono de piel. Me sorprendió que en realidad mezcla bien y le dio a mi piel un aspecto más pulido y brillante. También igualó a cabo mi tono de piel para ocultar las imperfecciones, cicatrices de acné, o enrojecimiento.Tenga en cuenta, que aún debe aplicar su corrector regular. El bál-

samo sólo cubrirá las ojeras en un grado. Es mejor aplicar el producto después de haber usado su crema hidratante habitual, ya que el producto no se mezcla bien en su piel fácilmente si usted tiene piel seca. Yo era escéptica sobre el brillo, pero después de aplicar el producto, se mira sutil y no abrumadora. El resplandor sin embargo, se queda en las manos después de aplicarlo, así que asegúrese de lavarse las manos después. Mi único problema con el producto es que, dado que la consistencia es un poco de líquido se puede escapar un poco del tubo. La coherencia también conduce a la construcción ligera producto en la abertura del tubo, pero estas cuestiones son muy menor. La fórmula del producto es no grasa y de peso ligero por lo que se acerca peligrosamente a la sensación de que usted no está usando ningún tipo de maquillaje en absoluto. Durante días, que opté por una mayor cobertura, el bálsamo se mezcla bien con una

crema bb o una fundación. Es agradable de usar con un polvo de acabado así, pero eso no es demasiado necesario. El bálsamo es versátil tanto para el día y maquillaje de noche. Los beneficios para la piel con este producto son abundantes. La fórmula está destinada a hidratar, proteger la piel del daño, y ayudar a reparar cualquier daño pasado. También tiene un SPF de 20 para proteger de los daños del sol. Durante el verano y el invierno mi piel se seca sobre todo en mis líneas de la sonrisa, pero con el producto se mejora la hidratación de mi piel. No puedo decir mucho sobre los beneficios “productos anti-envejecimiento”, ya que no soy lo suficientemente mayor como para tener algún problema de la piel asociada con la edad. En general, para alguien como yo, que necesita una rutina de maquillaje rápido, este es un buen producto. El precio es $ 34 y Urban Decay Naked Skin en Illuminating está disponible en la tienda Macy’s, Sephora o Ulta y, por supuesto, en línea.

Maite Perroni, la actriz y cantante Mexicana y, junto con Pantene, presento hoy el lanzamiento mundial de su video musical “Vas a Querer Volver”, el tercer sencillo de su nueva producción discográfica  como solista, “Eclipse de Luna Deluxe”. El sencillo “Vas a Querer Volver” también formara parte de la telenovela “La Gata” como el tema principal en septiembre.

  Maite no solo hace brillar su voz, sino también luce varios peinados preciosos en el video con la ayuda del famoso estilista de Pantene, Gabriel Samra.

Como Recrear el Look Ondulado de Maite: 1) Después de lavar el cabello y antes de secar se aplicó

el No Crunch Curls Whip de Pantene.   2) Ya secado el cabello, lo dividimos en 4 secciones para comenzar a elaborar las ondas.   3) Cada sección se subdivide en secciones de 1 1/2” aprox., y utilizando una tenaza de 1” tomamos el mechón y le damos vuelta alrededor de la barra de la tenaza, esperamos 10 segundos aproximadamente, luego se retira la tenaza, esperamos unos 5 segundos que se enfrié el cabello y dejamos caer.   4) Luego que todo el cabello esté listo, usamos un poco del Texturizing Sculpting Wax de Pantene Pro-V para separar las ondas.   5) Y para terminar, peinamos y luego rociamos sobre el cabello, el Flexible Hold HairSpray de Pantene Pro-V, para asegurarnos un look sin frizz y uniforme.

(NOTIMEX) El seleccionado nacional de Argentina inició bien en la Copa Panamericana, al vencer en tres sets a su similar de Venezuela, y Puerto Rico hizo lo propio ante República dominicana tras jugar la segunda jornada de la justa. Argentina se presentó en la IX Copa Panamericana de Voleibol Varonil y logro imponerse en tres sets a su similar de Venezuela por 25-20, 35-33 y 25-23, en juego correspondiente al Grupo “C” realizado en el Centro de Alto Rendimiento (CAR) de esta ciudad. La escuadra argentina, luego de llevarse el primer set con una diferencia de cinco puntos, en los siguientes tuvo que echar mano de toda su experiencia. Y es que en un segundo set, la sexteta venezolana no supo ganar y empatar el juego, al dejar ir más de siete oportunidades de punto para set. Mientras que los argentinos en la prime-

ra oportunidad sentenciaron el 2-0.Para el tercer set continuó la presión de Venezuela, pero no les alcanzó para extender el juego ante los pupilos de Hernán Ferraro. Los argentinos contaron con la aportación ofensiva de Pablo Kukartsev con quince puntos, Rodrigo Villalba y Christian Poglajen con once y Maximiliano Gauna con diez, además del buen trabajo del líbero Franco López.De los venezolanos, figuraron el capitán Kervin Piñerua con catorce puntos, Jesús Chourio con trece, Héctor Salerno y Fredy Cedeño con nueve. Los argentinos sostendrán este miércoles el segundo partido de la Copa Panamericana ante Canadá, desde las 17:00 horas, en el CAR, mientras que Venezuela esperará resultados para conocer al siguiente rival en la segunda fase del evento.En otro encuentro de la segunda jornada, el representativo de Puerto Rico dio un paso a cuartos de final de este certamen, al imponerse por

3-0 a República Dominicana en el Grupo “B”. Puerto Rico (1-1) necesitó de tres sets para despachar a Dominicana (0-1), con parciales de 25-17, 25-18 y 28-26, al cumplir con el primer partido de la segunda jornada en el Gimnasio de Usos Múltiples del CAR.El equipo de David Alemán, que el pasado lunes cayó en cinco sets ante Cuba, esta vez fue contundente y con variantes ofensivas que terminaron por arrasar a los dominicanos. Ezequiel Torres, Maurice Torres y Pedrito Sierra fueron una tercia que pesó en red, al conseguir cada uno once puntos para el cuadro boricua. Mientras que Mannix Román aportó diez unidades y el capitán Héctor “Piki” Soto otros siete. A diferencia de Ezequiel Torres que consiguió diez de sus once puntos en remates poderosos, Román lució grande en la red con seis bloqueos y

Sierra con otros tres, mientras que en la defensa el “Piki” Soto y Denis del Valle.Del equipo dominicano, los hombres importantes en la ofensiva fueron José Cáceres con 16 puntos, Elvis Contreras con once, Germán Recio con ocho y el capitán Wilfrido Hernández con siete. Dominicana regresará este miércoles a la duela para enfrentarse a Cuba, a partir de las 15:00 horas, en el cierre de la primera etapa, y Puerto Rico esperará la siguiente fase para conocer rival y horario de juego el próximo jueves.

(NOTIMEX) La cosecha de cinco puntos en cuatro jornadas del Torneo Apertura 2014 de la Liga MX tiene molesto al técnico de Cruz Azul, Luis Fernando Tena, quien confía que con el mejor futbol del equipo pronto mejorarán. “En cuanto a la producción de puntos, malo. Está claro que un plantel de esta calidad debería estar con una mejor cosecha”, admitió hoy en rueda de prensa. Al finalizar la práctica en La Noria, expuso que el desempeño de los jugadores tampoco ha sido lo positivo que se esperaba, sobre todo tras un Clausura 2014 donde fueron líderes generales. “(El Apertura 2014 ha sido) bueno a secas en cuanto al desenvolvimiento. También creemos que podemos jugar mejor. De hecho en el torneo anterior lo hicimos mejor en el funcionamiento colectivo, es prácticamente el mismo plantel”, expuso el timonel. El “Flaco” confía en un repunte celeste durante las jornadas siguientes, para

empezar a escalar posiciones y entrar a la zona de calificación a la liguilla: “Está claro que vamos mejorando poco a poco y en muy poco tiempo vamos a llegar al cien por ciento de nuestro nivel”. Dentro de las variantes que estudia cuenta con el aporte que ha dado al equipo el mediocampista Christian “Chaco” Giménez, a quien por ahora ha usado como relevo, pero que negó lo vaya a mantener como cambio de oro, además de catalogarlo como ejemplo, igual que otros experimentados del grupo. “Siempre platico con los jugadores y más con los que tienen más experiencia. Si he charlado con él. Yo le explico por qué por ahora no conviene que inicie, que de cambio

nos ha ayudado muchísimo, tanto si vamos ganando o si vamos perdiendo nos ha ayudado mucho, y llegará el momento en que inicie los partidos”. Insistió en que mantiene constante “comunicación con él. Obviamente él prefiere iniciar, pero la verdad es un gran profesional, alguien con 33 años que entiende muy bien, que analiza muy bien y que siempre está tratando de ayudar, tanto en el juego como a los compañeros”. Aseguró que pronto podría ser tomado en cuenta para el cuadro titular, “porque además anda muy bien físicamente, hizo muy buena pretemporada”, pero todo dependerá de las circunstancias.
