WWW.EL-OBSERVADOR.COM Library kicks off Groundbreaking and Naming Anchor Branch at Evergreen Village Square / On Saturday, September 6, the San José Public Library and Councilmember Rose Herrera will hold the groundbreaking celebration for the future home of the Southeast Branch Library. The event, which starts at 10:00 a.m. at 4001 Evergreen Village Square (corner of Classico Ave. and Evergreen Village Sq.), will mark the start of construction of the library system’s final branch funded from the Branch Library Bond Measure. The bond measure approved by San José voters in 2000 provided $212 million for the construction of six new, and fourteen expanded, branch libraries throughout the community. ReStore and Gordon Biersch Receive San José Sustainability Award / On August 5, the San José Environmental Services Department presented the “Heart of San José” sustainability award to the local Habitat for Humanity ReStore and Gordon Biersch restaurant. The awards were presented at a statewide conference of recycling and litter experts that was held in Downtown San José. Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley ReStore received the award for making home improvements affordable while diverting waste from landfills. ReStores are donation centers that offer building materials, home goods, and furniture to the general public at deeply discounted prices. ReStore staff estimate that the two stores in San José will keep 1,350 tons of reusable materials out of landfills this year. Gordon Biersch was honored for its sustainability leadership and numerous investments in the community, including fundraisers and job training opportunities for residents with disabilities. Logra un futuro mejor con leche:El astronauta José Hernández recuerda a los padres que las decisiones de hoy duran para siempre / Si bien los padres no siempre toman conciencia de ello, los consejos que dan y las opciones nutricionales que eligen pueden tener un efecto de por vida en sus hijos. Esta influencia de los padres es la motivación detrás de la nueva campaña de la Junta de Procesadores de Leche de California (CMPB) que se lanza el día de hoy. Los nuevos anuncios de la entidad creadora de got milk? y toma leche les recuerdan a los padres que elegir leche sienta las bases para llevar una nutrición adecuada y alcanzar el éxito futuro. José M. Hernández, ex-ingeniero de la NASA, sabe esto por experiencia propia y se ha asociado con got milk? para transmitirles a los californianos el mensaje de los anuncios con un ejemplo de la vida real. Hernández visitará algunas ciudades del estado y explicará a las audiencias que las decisiones tempranas, como elegir la leche, sientan las bases que los niños necesitan para alcanzar las estrellas, especialmente cuando están por regresar a la escuela.

Could a Fergeson, Missourilike event happen here? Only in America, could the people display non-violent civic disobedience ten days after another police shooting incident. The killing’ of another unarmed Black teenager, Michael Brown, in a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri, is worth analysis because of the paramilitary mindset, social class racism and the economic deprivation extant in this nation today. Their most recent mantra is “MY HANDS ARE UP; DON’T SHOOT’. This incident ignited a public outcry elicited by this killing and the paramilitary military responses. Police wearing camoflaged uniforms & riot headgear, attempted crowd control by using blast

Luisa Fernanda Montero PARA LA RED HISPANA La muerte de uno de los actores más geniales de la industria del cine, que conmovió a millones de personas alrededor del mundo, sorprende por su crudeza. Pocos podemos entender que un hombre que fue capaz de derramar tanto talento y alegría guardara dentro de sí una tristeza capaz de matarlo. La mala noticia es que el del actor multifacético es simplemente uno más de los miles de casos que se presentan anualmente en Estados Unidos y en el mundo. En este país cada año 39,000 personas se quitan la vida y cerca de 490,000 son atendidas en centros hospitalarios por lastimarse a sí mismos, de acuerdo con datos de los Centros de Control de Enfermedades -CDC-.

The local police displayed its paramilitary tactics and equipment supplied by Department of Homeland Security coordinaed with the Department of Defense. This may indicate the level of influence which the ‘military-industrial complex’ has in our nation. The Pentagon has its allies in the U.S. Congress who insist on development of weapon systems which are not needed yet, while neglecting the needs of the people. When will we learn that in today’s global universe, America needs to assert the superiority of its concepts of governance which take care of people with consideration, dignity, respect, religious and cultural sensitivity. Armed might and wars do not solve the problems of this nation and the world. Rather, armed might suppresses the dialogues necessary to finding the resolution to the challenges being faced. The mili-

Later it was determined that the local police contained only 3 African American officers. This in a community which is 80% Black-20% White. Those police had to be scared out of their minds when that community reacted with a peaceful demonstration. Some bottles thrown by fringe dissidents allegedly turned that non-violent dissent expression into one of violence. Since many of those ‘white police’ were not residents of Fergeson, they were not well informed about high levels of anger and resentment resulting from repression and unemployment. The community, composed of both Black and Whites, was displaying their right to ‘peaceably assemble’ and their ‘Freedom of Speech’. Both are American ideals. Authorities need to read

the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment to remind themselves that this is a government ‘of the people, by the people, and for the people’. During the chaos, a fringe group began to vandalize, loot and pillage local retail stores. Local citizens formed human barriers to control this. A state of emergency was declared by the Governor who had the Missouri State Police take over and deployed a local National Guard unit. A curfew was imposed and was violated by local enfuriated residents. The FBI and Department of Justice deployed agents to independently determine what had happened and who was involved. It was totally inappropriate for the Fergeson Police Chief to release surveillance videos and other materials in an attempt to disparage the reputation of Michael Brown. No Police Chief has the right to be judge and jury because of ‘conflict of interest’ and ‘self-

Constitution and its Bill of Rights...nor does it serve that Fergeson commnity. The family suthorized an autopsy of Michael Brown’s remains. This established that he was shot six times. Two bullets hit his skill; four bullets hit his body. The next day, the Missouri State Patrol assumed responsibility for Fergeson’s public safety and security. It was then that the name of the officer, Darrin Wilson, was made public by the Police Chief who began to release information disparaging the character of Michael Brown. Today the Fergeson community is very tense. Its residents, both ‘White’ and ‘Black’ are working collaboratively to re-establish their community’s lawful peace

and security which is essential to the American life style and its conduct of commerce. But let us not overlook the role of the various levels of governance in creating the current cynical attitude of ‘We, The People’. The various governance levels must operate with honesty, integrity and transparency; with the conscious knowledge that there are ‘checks and balances’. The U.S. Congress, as an elected policy making group must perform and fulfil its purpose which is to govern with the objective of doing the greatest good for the greatest number of Americans. As an outcome of its inaction regarding several broken public policy systems, such as income disparity, excessive support of the military-industrial complex, the need for jobs; adjustment of the dynamic equilibrium, a well-funded education system, and a fair justice system. If policy adjustments are not made soon, YES, it could happen here in Silicon Valley.

Santa Clara County CALIFORNIA Five residents of Santa Clara County have been infected with West Nile virus (WNV). Two residents had the more severe neuroinvasive form of the disease, West Nile encephalitis, one had West Nile fever, and two residents had no symptoms. Of the three people with symptoms, two were hospitalized and released, and one is currently hospitalized. All five Santa Clara County residents live in areas of the county with high WNV activity this year. Unlike last year, when WNV activity in birds and mosquitoes was concentrated in Milpitas and East San Jose, this year, WNV activity is concentrated in Mountain View, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, Cupertino, Campbell, and west and south San Jose. “It is important to remember most people who get a mosquito bite will not become infected, will not develop symptoms and will not need to seek care,” said Dr. Sara Cody, Health Officer for Santa Clara County. “But in some cases, West Nile can cause serious illness. To reduce the risk of West Nile, residents should take precautions to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes.” This year Santa Clara County has had an unusually large number of birds that died from WNV. 648 dead birds infected with WNV have been reported in Santa Clara County so far in 2014, which

AUGUST 22-28, 2014

represents half of all the reported dead birds infected with WNV in California. 85% of the dead birds tested in the County this year were infected with WNV. Because of this situation, the risk of WNV in residents of Santa Clara County this summer is likely to be higher than in previous years, especially over the next two months.

can take steps to protect themselves from contracting West Nile Virus, including:

Last year there were two human cases of WNV; prior to that, there was a case in 2011, which was fatal, one case in 2008, four in 2007, and five in 2006.

· Dress in long sleeves and pants if you are outside from dusk through dawn when many mosquitoes are most active.

Physicians in Santa Clara County have been provided information regarding the symptoms of West Nile virus, how to diagnose the disease and to report suspected cases to the Public Health Department. WNV is transmitted to humans and animals through the bite of an infected mosquito. The risk of becoming seriously ill is low for most people. Less than 1% of people can develop serious neurologic illness such as encephalitis or meningitis. People over the age of 50 have a higher chance of becoming ill. In addition, people with diabetes or hypertension have a greater risk of complications and serious illness. After someone is bitten, the incubation period is generally 2 to 6 days, but it can be as many as 14 days. Most people are infected between June and September, when it is warm outside and mosquitoes are most active. People

· Use insect repellents when you go outdoors. Repellents containing DEET, picaridin, IR3535, and some oil of lemon, eucalyptus and para-menthane-diol products provide longer-lasting protection.

· Be sure to install or repair screens on windows and doors to keep mosquitoes out. If you have air conditioning, use it. · Help reduce the number of mosquitoes around your home by emptying standing water from containers such as flowerpots, gutters, buckets, pool covers, pet water dishes, discarded tires, and birdbaths. · Report any mosquito breeding sources to the Santa Clara County Vector Control District at www.SCCvector. org or (408) 918-4770.

In addition, Cupertino Union School District Superintendent Wendy Gudalewicz will speak to the impact their Dual Immersion Mandarin program has had in her district, and two students from Meyerholz Elementary School will share thoughts about their experience as dual immersion students. “We are very excited about this opportunity to team up with the Santa Clara County Office of Education and local schools and communities,” said Jiaxin Xie, director of the Confucius Institute at San Francisco State University. “Through these contests, we hope to provide a platform for Chinese learners to demonstrate their

linguistic and cultural talents, and showcase their interest and achievements in learning Chinese language and culture with help from their teachers and parents. We hope that the study of Chinese will not just connect American students with the language, but also with the culture, literature, and rich history of China.” Students can compete in one of five age groups in four categories: Calligraphy (pen/ brush), Painting/Drawing, Chinese Poetry Recital and Oral Presentation. The deadline to apply for participation is September 30, with the contest itself taking place on October 25, followed by an awards ceremony on November 15.Silicon Valley Education Foundation is located at 1400 Parkmoor Avenue, Suite 200 in San Jose.

New Toolkit to Help Educators Explain Common Core SACRAMENTO

Educators and school districts now have a new free toolkit to help them spread the word about how the Common Core State Standards are remodeling California’s education system to better prepare students for college and careers, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced. “As students and teachers head back to school they will be experiencing exciting changes in California education, including a new way of teaching and learning through the Common Core,” Torlakson said. “Now educators have additional help in dispelling the mystery and concerns of families about this transition with a new communications toolkit created with the help of several major education groups in the state.” “Explaining Common Core to Californians: A Commu-

nications Toolkit” is an online resource created with the help of the California Department of Education, State Board of Education, Californians Dedicated to Education, California County Superintendents Educational Services Association, California State PTA®, California School Boards Association, California Teachers Association, California Federation of Teaches AFT/AFLCIO, Association of California School Administrators, the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce, and the nonprofit FrameWorks. 

The resource is a collection of research, recommendations, and sample communications designed to help educators increase their own and the public’s understanding of the kinds of instruction, testing, and support needed to fulfill the potential of the Common Core. For example, educators can download printable message cards that provide metaphors to help them ex-

Los ladrones de identidad Making The Most Of Mobility In Your Business apuntan tanto a los niños como a los adultos

Jason Alderman PRACTICAL MONEY Lamento comunicarles que el robo de identidad de menores ha prosperado en 2014 y probablemente el problema empeore a medida que los ladrones inventen nuevos métodos para robar y usar la información personal de los niños. En la mayoría de los casos, recolectan los números del seguro social inactivo de los niños y los usan para obtener ilegalmente un trabajo o abrir cuentas bancarias o de crédito, obtener hipotecas o préstamos automotores en forma fraudulenta.

Technology can make work easier, faster and more efficient wherever you may need to be.

NAPS If you’re like most people in business today, you feel the need to be available 24/7 and “do it all.” This brings a call for more flexibility and the ability to work in a way that best suits our individual style. Mobile technologies are essential to bringing work and home lives together and helping people access files, emails and schedules anytime, anywhere, with the touch of a finger. In particular, small businesses are becoming increasingly dependent on mobile technology, with the National Small Business Association finding that 74 percent of SMBs use smartphones, up nearly 20 points from just three years ago. Customers and employees expect seamless, integrated workflow that won’t be interrupted when employees are working remotely. Providing employees with the right technology to do their jobs both in and out of the office keeps pro-

ductivity high and drives better business results. As you look to make your business increasingly mobile, here are a few tips to consider: Marry digital and print to best meet your business needs. The way that people are accessing content is changing. Some documents that were once kept in hard copy, such as calendars, are now better suited to a smartphone screen. However, the need for printed documents—for things such as client presentations and proofing—is still very much alive. New mobile print technologies—for example, the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M476—make securely printing on the go from NFC-enabled mobile devices as easy as touching the device to the printer. Extend business beyond the brick and mortar. Mobile payment technologies such as the Square Card Reader

expand the reach of your business and help you engage customers outside your storefront or office. These applications make the shift from paper to plastic much easier for both businesses and consumers. Whether you’re an insurance agent or an artist, you can connect and conduct transactions with your customers whenever and wherever your business takes you. Be on top of filing, not buried in it. Businesses keep track of countless amounts of paper. Looking for a mislabeled or misfiled document is frustrating and wastes important time and resources. Cloud-based document management solutions, including HP Flow CM or Box, can help small businesses effectively digitize, store and retrieve documents. This makes it easier for employees to quickly access, edit and store important paperwork regardless of where they’re working.

Muchas de las víctimas no notan ningún problema hasta que solicitan un préstamo educativo, quieren abrir una cuenta bancaria o alquilar un departamento, o se postulan para un empleo y son rechazados por tener un mal historial crediticio que, sin saberlo, ha sido arruinado por otra persona. Algunas familias hasta llegan a ser acosadas por las agencias de cobranzas o arrestadas por la magnitud de las deudas o los delitos cometidos. No hay métodos infalibles para proteger la identidad de sus hijos, pero estas son algunas de las precauciones que puede tomar: Si bien es tentador simplemente no registrar a sus hijos en la Seguridad Social hasta que cumplan los 18 años, hoy en día no es nada práctico. Para empezar, usted debe declararlos como dependientes en sus declaraciones fiscales. También puede necesitar el número del seguro social de sus hijos para obtener cobertura médica o servicios gubernamentales, o para abrir cuentas bancarias a nombre de ellos. Dado que el número del seguro social de cada persona es único, con frecuencia las escuelas, los prestadores

médicos, las compañías de seguro, los bancos y otros lo solicitan como medio de identificación. Así y todo, no tenga miedo de preguntar: • ¿Para qué necesitan usar el número del seguro social? ¿Es obligatorio? • ¿Aceptan otro medio de identificación? • ¿Qué pasa si no proporciona el número del seguro social de sus hijos? • ¿Qué medidas de seguridad toman con la información personal? • ¿Aceptan no usar el número del seguro social de sus hijos como número de identificación personal en las correspondencias, resúmenes bancarios o tarjetas de identificación? Preste atención a los siguientes signos, que pueden indicar que el número del seguro social de su hijo ha sido utilizado fraudulentamente: • Su hijo recibe ofertas de cuentas de crédito pre-aprobadas. • Su hijo recibe llamados o resúmenes de cuenta de agencias de cobranzas, acreedores o agencias gubernamentales. • Usted no puede abrir una cuenta bancaria a nombre de su hijo porque ya existe una cuenta con el mismo número de seguro social. • A su hijo le deniegan un crédito, empleo, licencia de conducir o la inscripción a la universidad por motivos desconocidos o relacionados con el crédito. Recuerde que su hijo puede estar recibiendo ofertas de crédito por motivos legítimos. Por ejemplo, podría ser una campaña de marketing de alguna afiliada de su banco o tal vez usted abrió un fondo universitario a su nombre. Si realmente sospecha o tiene pruebas de que se ha cometido un robo de

identidad, puede:

• Hacer la denuncia policial

y guardar una copia como prueba del delito. • Contactarse con las unidades de fraude de las tres agencias crediticias más importantes: Equifax (800525-6285), Experian (888397-3742) y TransUnion (800-680-7289) y pedir instrucciones. • Notificar a la Comisión Federal de Comercio (877438-4338), cuyo sitio web de Robo de Identidad contiene información sobre alertas de fraude, congelamiento del crédito, cómo trabajar con la policía y mucho más. (www. ftc.gov). • Averiguar en la Seguridad Social (800-772-1213) si alguien ha reportado ingresos con el número del seguro social de su hijo. Para obtener información, busque “Identity Theft” (“Robo de Identidad”) en www.ssa.gov. • Contáctese con la Unidad de Protección de Identidad del IRS (800-980-4490). La Comisión Federal de Comercio recomienda contactarse con las tres agencias crediticias principales cuando su hijo tenga alrededor de 16 años para ver si tiene informes crediticios registrados. (No debería haber ninguno a menos que su hijo sea usuario autorizado de alguna de sus cuentas). Si hay algún informe –y contiene errores debido a fraudes o uso indebido – tendrá tiempo para corregirlos antes de que su hijo necesite usar el crédito. Advierta a sus hijos sobre los peligros de divulgar información personal por teléfono, correo electrónico o las redes sociales. No dude en controlar sus cuentas e instalar software de control parental. Y recuerde, si usan su computadora, cualquier virus que descarguen podría infectar sus cuentas también.

portation Authority, among others made remarks.

Wednesday marked a milestone for transportation in the Bay Area. After initially beginning the taxing and plans for a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) extension into the heart of the Silicon Valley 30 years ago, the BART initiative to the South Bay is finally coming to fruition.

Guardino noted, “We sit at the earth’s epicenter of innovation and job creation in Silicon Valley, but that as a community we never step back and breathe, to see the results we have so rapidly tried to attain. This is highly true in the tech field, but also true in this dense, fastpaced population that is ever changing.” Guardino continued, highlighting that this last allocation of funds towards the BART extension in San José would connect the Bay Area, and provide congestion alleviation that will benefit the community overall.

Community members, sponsors, and politicians that helped make it a reality gathered to take a breather and look back at those responsible for its success, as well as the project’s future. Carl Guardino, the CEO of Silicon Valley Leadership Group and Chair of California Transportation Comission led the discussion, and former mayor Ron Gonzalez, current mayor Chuck Reed, as well as Congressman Mike Honda, Councilmember Sam Liccardo, and Nuria Fernandez, the general manager of Valley Trans-

COMMUNTY

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

Former San José mayor Ron Gonzalez took the podium, recalling his role in bringing the project to the forefront. He mentioned a point which drove him and kept him going for 8 years as mayor. “My love for San José, the Silicon Valley, and the realization that this proj-

ect has the potential of connecting not just the biggest city in the bay area, but the best city in the bay area and the larger bay area.” Gonzalez also said that commuters were the simplest measure of the impact of this transportation system, highlighting that “any transportation system should be measured on its ability to get people from work and back home in time for dinner. A simple notion.” This is why his initiatives, along with those that took the torch into the 2000’s had the support of a large portion of the community, bringing an alternative to the clogged up freeway systems of the bay. Next up was mayor Chuck Reed, who started with “Mark the happening of a miracle. Somebody is destined for sainthood. A miracle has happened in California. We’re getting the last check of more than a 700 million dollar promise

that was made decades ago.” This included 3 governors, Davis, Schwarzenegger, and Brown, as well as countless others who managed to deliver this “miracle” extension. Reed noted that even during the recession and dips in employment they faired through, even with opportunities to spend that BART extension money elsewhere. So it was not only a day to thank those that helped, but to recollect the memories and the struggles of getting this project off to a start. Guardino said, “You need folks that are willing to put their wallets where their words are, and to roll up their sleeves and get the job done.” The Bay Area Rapid Transit extension, with new stops in Milpitas and finally in the Berryessa neighborhood, will open in 2017. The project is currently 10 months ahead of schedule, perhaps due to the fastpaced nature of the Silicon Valley.

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.

Santa Clara County CALIFORNIA The County’s new Human Trafficking Commission “will bring hope to exploited children and adults in our community. That all possible resources to protect them is finally being focused on their plight,” Co-Chair Cindy Chavez said after its first meeting today. A wide range of local and federal government officials who work on human trafficking issues, plus nongovernmental organizations, business and labor, are rep-

resented on the Commission, which is also co-chaired by District Attorney Jeff Rosen and Sheriff Laurie Smith. “Our message to the vulnerable victims of human trafficking is: ‘You are not alone. We are here to help you,’” Rosen said. “Our message to sexual exploiters and traffickers is this: ‘We will find you and hold you accountable for your crimes.’” The Commission voted to identify gaps in the current response to Human Trafficking and to work to remedy them. Specifically, the Com-

mission highlighted the need for a place to treat victims and the need for adequate funding and public awareness. “I’m pleased that – in our very first meeting – we took steps to identify gaps in service,” Chavez said. “With everyone at the table, we’ll be more effective at finding the best treatment options for victims.” The Commission represents the first time that the county has attempted to coordinate its approach to a growing problem that has been described as “modern-day

slavery.” Best known as child sex trafficking, human trafficking also includes other forms of human exploitation including debt bondage, domestic servitude and forced child labor. Supervisor Chavez introduced the County measure that created the Commission after the FBI identified the Bay Area as a national hub for child sex trafficking. The County established a Human Trafficking Team in June that added deputies, criminalists and an attorney as part of the larger effort led by the Commission.

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

in life where they’re feeling troubled or unsure of what to do next.

Many people have little idea of who professional counselors really are and what they really do. For most of us, our experience has been limited to the school counselors we’ve known, or the mental health professionals we’ve seen portrayed on TV. Fictional counselors we encounter through books, movies and television seldom offer an accurate picture of the profession. Their clients are usually “crazy people” with serious mental and behavioral issues and the counselor’s work seldom seems to help.

Another misconception is that seeing a professional counselor means someone is weak and in need of being told how to live his or her life. The truth, of course, is that it’s a sign of strength to know when to ask for assistance. And a counselor’s job is not dictating to clients how to live their lives.

The reality, however, is that professional counselors fulfill a variety of roles, most of which have nothing to do with people being “crazy.” The people most professional counselors see are simply ordinary folks facing problems that may seem overwhelming, or who are at a place

What professional counselors do offer is help. Most counselors, for example, base their interventions on the person’s strengths, the things he or she is already good at, not on the person’s weaknesses and problems. The job of a professional counselor is not to make a person feel uncomfortable, guilty or ashamed. Rather, it’s to assist the client in growing, in learning new things, and in discovering how to make changes for the better. The counselor is a fa-

cilitator and guide, someone who offers suggestions about helpful directions and possible actions, but not someone who magically provides answers. With a good counselor you should feel safe and comfortable as you discover for yourself the answers that will help you. Counseling is a process that does change and help people. Whether it’s dealing with a loss, relationship problems, work issues, child rearing, feelings of anxiety, anger or depression, or any of hundreds of other all too common issues, professional counselors are trained and licensed to provide needed help. You can learn more about what professional counselors have to offer by making an appointment with a local counselor (check your phone directory for the specialties offered in your area) or through the ACA website at www.counseling.org.

Combine pudines deliciosos y saludables con los ingredientes de su propia alacena o refrigerador

(FAMILY FEATURES) Hectic mornings, busy schedules and afternoon snack cravings can make it difficult to eat foods that are tasty, healthy and satisfying. Instead of grabbing a bag of packaged cookies or vending machine chips, have a healthy alternative available for you and your family that’s delicious and satisfying.

Try these tips from Wilton for healthier, tasty treats: »Think Greek. With more protein and richness than other yogurt varieties, Greek yogurt can be used in many different ways. Try it in fruit dips or as an alternative for mayo or sour cream. You can even substitute it for some of the butter in baking recipes to reduce calories and fat. » Make it fun. Let kids get creative by using cookie cutters on low-fat cheese slices and whole grain bread or tortillas to build their own snacks. Or, have them make funny faces using natural peanut butter, raisins and fruit, like sliced bananas, apples or pears. »Sneak in veggies. Bakers are using veggies more than ever before in new, inspirational baked treats. Many vegetables have a natural sweetness, so your family won’t taste the difference during snack time. Try sweet potato cupcakes or carrot and zucchini cookies.

Squash and Banana Mini Muffins Makes about 48 mini muffins 1 1/2cups all-purpose flour 1 cup quick oats (uncooked) 2 teaspoons baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 1 1/4cups thawed frozen pureed winter squash 3/4cup firmly-packed light brown sugar 3/4cup mashed banana (about 2 medium bananas) 1egg 2tablespoons canola oil 1cup dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare mini muffin pan with vegetable pan spray. In large bowl, stir together flour, oats, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice. In medium bowl, whisk together squash, sugar, banana, egg and oil. Make a well in center of flour mixture; whisk in squash mixture until just combined. Stir in cranberries. Fill cavities 2/3 full with batter. Bake 12-14 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center of muffin comes out clean.

(FAMILY FEATURES) ¿Qué desea comer alrededor de las 3 de la tarde? ¿Algo salado? ¿Algo crujiente? ¿Algo cremoso, suave y dulce? En estos días, cada vez más personas buscan bocadillos saludables y que llenen para pasar la tarde. Tenemos una opción de bocadillo que probablemente no haya imaginado: el pudín.

Cinthia Rodriguez El Observador The Mexican Heritage Corporation is well known for its annual mariachi festival but it also collaborates with other organizations to promote Mexican heritage through art, music, and dance. One of the ways they do that is through their mariachi youth program. “The mission of the Mexican Heritage Corporation is to celebrate and preserve the cultural heritage of Mexico

and one of the ways we do that is by preserving this art form known as mariachi by teaching it, by presenting it in performance and by creating new ways to sustain its preservation with new generations of Latinos such as finding ways to teach mariachi in the public schools here in San Jose,” said Marcela Davison Aviles, executive director of MHC. The mariachi youth program was developed to help students achieve musical proficiency in a school setting and through workshops.

MHC worked with educators to create a curriculum that meets the requirements by the state of California Department of Education for preforming arts instruction. This way, the students can be evaluated and given academic credit. There are several elementary, middle, and high schools in San Jose where the program is offered. “Mariachi as an art form is difficult to learn to do well, in terms of the repertoire that you have to learn, in terms of the performance techniques that a musician needs to ac-

quire in order to become a successful musician. Learning things like technique, pitch, intonation, learning the discipline of rehearsing every day; learning to be an active listener, learning to read music. All the calculations that you make in your head. It’s not easy,” said Davison Aviles. “These are all skills that if you provide access to students to have the opportunity to learn theses skills, to create something beautiful, to be part of something bigger than themselves, and our data shows it, that that creates a recipe for success.” The mariachi youth program has been up and running for 15 years. Aside from celebrating their Quinceñera (a Latin American tradition for a young woman who turns 15 years old) they also have another reason to celebrate; they will have the opportunity to perform at a national policy forum. MHC accepted to work on the White House Initiative for Educational Excellence for Hispanics (WHIEEH). MHC assisted in identifying other educators in mariachi across the country including cities like Chicago, Nashville,

Tucson, and Las Vegas. They advised Washington D.C. on who should be at the table to discuss the impact of music education. Most importantly, MHC will provide the entertainment; students from the mariachi youth program will be performing. “We’re just taking the music that we grew up with and adding it to the mix so that our youth will have access to the same kind of programs that other students from other communities have access to that creates a whole program of success and academic achievement,” said Davison Aviles. Special auditions were held to create an all-star band and folklorico ensemble. All students range from 10 years old to 17 years of age. The students will perform on August 27. The two-day forum taking place on August 27 and 28, managed under the US Department of Education, seeks to create outreach, provide information, and focus on best practices in the educational community with regards to closing the Latino academic achievement gap. MHC will share the rationale

behind offering access to programs like their own. “I know that the key to success for a student to be able to do well in school and create a successful plan to get into college, half of it, if not more, is support at home and parents really being involved with their child,” said Davison Aviles. MHC will also present the idea of providing an educational tool that’s culturally relevant, and creates an environment in which parents feel they can become more engaged in their child’s academic career. Other participants include Michael Butera, Director of the National Music Educator’s Association, Laurie Schell, Director of Music Makes Us, Nashville Public School District, and Richard Carranza, Superintendent of Schools at San Francisco Unified, as well as music and entertainment industry executives, non-profit arts leaders, and funders in philanthropy. “Mariachi, as an art form, has made such an impact in the US. It has created an opportunity for marginalized Latino youth to succeed through music,” said Davison Aviles.

Cinthia Rodríguez EL OBSERVADOR La corporación de la herencia mexicana (MHC) es conocida por su festival anual de mariachi, pero también colabora con otras organizaciones para promover la herencia mexicana a través del arte, la música y la danza. Una de las maneras que hacen esto es por medio de su programa “mariachi juvenil”. El programa mariachi juvenil fue desarrollado para ayudar a los estudiantes a lograr el dominio musical en un ambiente escolar a través de talleres. MHC trabajó con educadores para crear un plan de estudios que cumpla con los requisitos por parte del estado y del Departamento de Educación de California para la realización e instrucción en las artes. De esta manera, los alumnos pueden ser evaluados y recibir créditos académicos. Hay varias escuelas primarias, intermedias y secundarias en San José, donde se ofrece el programa. “Mariachi como una forma de arte no es fácil aprender a hacerlo bien, en cuanto al repertorio que tienes que aprender, en cuanto a las técnicas de interpretación que un músico debe poseer para convertirse en un músico de éxito; aprender habilidades como la técnica, tono, la entonación, el aprendizaje de la disciplina de ensayar todos los días, aprender a ser un oyente activo, aprender a

leer música, todos los cálculos que realice en su cabeza; que no es fácil “, dijo Marcela Davison Avilés, directora ejecutiva de MHC. “Éstas son todas las fortalezas que dan acceso a los estudiantes a tener la oportunidad de aprender habilidades de tesis, para crear algo hermoso y ser parte de algo más grande que ellos mismos y nuestros datos muestran que todo ello crea una receta para el éxito.” El programa mariachi juvenil ha estado funcionando durante 15 años. Aparte de la celebración de su aniversario número Quince, también tienen otra razón para celebrar, tendrán la oportunidad de actuar en un foro de política nacional. MHC ha sido aceptada para trabajar en la Iniciativa de la Casa Blanca para la Excelencia Educativa de los Hispanos (WHIEEH) MHC ayudó en la identificación de otros educadores en mariachi en todo el país, incluyendo ciudades como Chicago, Nashville, Tucson, y Las Vegas. Se aconseja a Washington DC sobre quién debe estar en la mesa para discutir el impacto de la educación musical. Lo más importante, MHC proporcionará el entretenimiento a todos los estudiantes del programa de jóvenes mariachis. Se realizaron audiciones especiales para crear una banda de estrellas y Folklórico conjunto. Todos los estudiantes que van desde 10 años de edad a 17 años de edad. Los

alumnos lo realizarán el día 27 de agosto. Durante el foro de dos días que tendrá lugar el 27 y 28 de agosto, se gestionará según el Departamento de Educación, una búsqueda para crear su divulgación, asimismo proporcionar información y atención en las mejores prácticas de la comunidad educativa, en lo que respecta al cierre de la brecha en el rendimiento académico Latino. MHC compartirá la razón que existe al ofrecer acceso a programas como los suyos.

“Mariachi como una forma de arte ha creado un impacto tan grande en los EE.UU. Se ha creado una oportunidad para que los jóvenes latinos marginados puedan tener éxito a través de la música “, dijo Davison Avilés. MHC también presentará la idea de ofrecer una herramienta educativa que resulta culturalmente relevante, creando un ambiente en el que los padres sientan que pueden participar más activamente en la vida académica de sus hijos. Otros participantes incluyen a Michael Butera, Director de la Asociación Nacional de Educadores de Música, Laurie Schell, Director de la Música del Distrito de Escuelas Públicas de Nashville, y Richard Carranza, Superintendente de las Escuelas de San Francisco Unified, así como ejecutivos de la música y la industria del entretenimiento, y líderes de artes –no profit, y amantes de la filantropía.

Malena Lopez-Maggi explores artificial nature, reframing natural objects and phenomena through highly chromatic objects and images, such as polymer geodes and

thunder eggs with bright centers and intricately patterned shells. Lopez-Maggi merges observation with imagination to produce forms that reference her immediate environment while evoking a playful otherworldliness.

Andrew Kluger, presidente de la junta de directores del Museo Mexicano, recientemente se reunió con autoridades de la UNAM, en representación del museo, en su visita a México. Entre las autoridades con las que se reunió se encuentran Julieta Ojeda Gómez, consejera del rector de la UNAM; Dra. Gloria Soberón Chávez, directora general de programación de nuevas iniciativas, y Juan Ma-

nuel Romero Ortega, director y consejero de innovación universitaria y nuevos proyectos. En las discusiones se incluyó una propuesta que establecería un nuevo programa de artistas visitantes en residencia en colaboración con el Museo Mexicano. “Nuestra visión inicial para este programa pionero implica traer artistas de la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México a nuestro museo durante el próximo año,” dijo Kluger. “Cada artista participaría en un programa de cinco días que incluiría su participación en conferencias y clases; llevar a cabo talleres para niños, y ser mentores de artistas jóvenes y talentosos de San Francisco. Adicionalmente la UNAM compartiría sus materiales educativos sobre arte y cultura de México a quienes apoyen y sean amigos de la comunidad del Museo Mexicano.” Por su parte, Sandra Acevedo Hanns, quien ha sido nom-

brada presidenta por Kluger para dirigir este importante proyecto, dijo: “Esta innovadora y significativa colaboración entre el Museo Mexicano y la Universidad pública más grande de México representa una importante alianza. El Museo Mexicano servirá de foco de atención para crear lazos culturales más fuertes entre nuestras dos naciones.” Además, está en fase de planeación una serie de exhibiciones donde se presentarán piezas tanto del Museo Mexicano como de la UNAM. Estas exhibiciones especiales permitirán que obras importantes sean compartidas e intercambiadas entre las dos organizaciones como parte de exhibiciones temporales. El Museo y la UNAM también colaborarán en la identificación de profesionales notables y nuevos artistas y escultores, y los invitarán a mostrar su trabajo en el Museo Mexicano.

(BPT) Few relationships in a woman’s life are as love-hate as the one she has with her high heels. We love them because they look great and make legs appear longer and leaner, helping petite women appear taller and tall women statuesque. The hate, however, comes when the pain begins. High heels are the No. 1 culprit of foot pain for women, according to an American Podiatric Medical Association survey. Nearly half of all women wear heels, and 71 percent of heel-wearers say those shoes hurt their feet, the APMA reports. “With many types of heels, like very high stilettos, foot

La colección incluye prendas como anillos, collares, aretes y pulseras que complementan todos los estilos, que en muchos casos están engarzadas con diamantes y piedras semipreciosas como amatista, tanzanita y topacio. Los engastes de oro de 10 quilates y plata de ley, con sus elaborados detalles, aportan un exquisito toque femenino. Cada prenda también incluye una esmeralda natural secreta que simboliza a Colombia, la bella patria de Sofía. Adecuándose magníficamente con la percepción de Sofía de la joyería como un medio de autoexpresión, la colección está diseñada para que sea perfecta tanto para un día en la oficina como para una velada nocturna en la ciudad.

Hollywood Reporter y Billboard Magazine. Es también la única actriz hispana que ha comenzado su carrera en el mercado hispano de Estados Unidos y ha hecho el cross over al mercado general, en el cual ha ganado, y continúa manteniendo, gran popularidad e influencia, ocupando posiciones clave en las listas Power Women y Celebrity 100 de Forbes. En estos momentos se la puede ver todas las semanas en su papel protagónico como “Gloria” en la serie de ABC, ganadora del premio Emmy, “Modern Family”, por el cual ha sido nominada cuatro veces a los premios Golden Globe, Primetime Emmy y Screen Actors Guild Awards. Sofía también ha actuado en diversas películas, entre ellas las recientes “Fading Gigolo” y “Chef ”, con Scarlett Johansson y Robert Downey Jr., y está coprotagonizando con Reese Witherspoon una comedia que se estrenará la próxima primavera.

pain is hard to avoid,” says Dr. Matthew G. Garoufalis, a podiatrist and immediate past president of the APMA. “But it is possible for women to find a happy mid-point between great looks and great pain.”

the APMA offers some basic guidelines for choosing betterfor-you heels: * Nearly half of heel-owners admit to wearing heels 3 inches or higher. That height, however, shifts body weight forward and puts great pressure on the ball of the foot and the toes. Avoid heels higher than 2 inches. * A high stiletto with a pointy, closed toe is the worst

type of shoe for your feet. Instead, choose heels with a generous toe box area and extra cushioning at the front

of the shoe. A slight heel or wedge encourages your arch to lift. * Consider wearing sup-

portive shoes during your commute and changing into high heels after you arrive at the office. This will help minimize the time your feet spend in heels. * Kitten heels are a goodlooking, foot-friendly option for heel wearers. With a heel height typically less than 1 inch, kitten heels deliver a bit of height without the pressure that higher heels can cause. * Be extra careful when wearing platforms or wedges, as these styles can compromise your balance and stability. Very high shoes may lead to ankle rolls and falls. Choose lower platforms and wedges that secure with ankle straps. * During warm weather, peep toes tempt women to show off pretty pedicures. Be

aware, however, that peep toes can cause toes to slip forward or overlap, and may even push nail edges into skin, causing an ingrown toenail. * If you experience persistent foot pain, see a podiatrist. Feet shouldn’t hurt all the time, and if they do it may indicate injury, irritation or illness. You can search for a podiatrist in your area by visiting the APMA website. Finally, even if you’re like the average American woman and own nine pairs of high heels, don’t wear them every day. Daily heel-wearing can cause the Achilles tendon (the strong tendon at the back of your ankle) to shrink, increasing your risk of an injury while doing activities in flat shoes, including exercise.

El cantante nicaragüense promociona en México su álbum como solista (NOTIMEX) El cantante nicaragüense Don Sevilla expresó que su nuevo álbum como solista “A donde sea”, el cual promociona, habla de un viaje para descubrir el entorno que cada ser humano tiene. En entrevista con Notimex, el intérprete comentó que su vida está dedicada al ciento por ciento a la música, ya que desde pequeño su sueño era obtener un lugar en el gusto del público con sus canciones. “Soy nicaragüense, a los 17 años vine a México a estudiar, trabajé con una banda de rock e hice dos álbumes. Después firmé con la disquera, comenzamos a planear el álbum solista, para mí era un sueño planearlo y ahora que es realidad aún no me la creo. “El disco cuenta con 10 temas inéditos, así que el público ya puede adquirirlo tanto en físico como en digital. Además, incluí un ‘cover’

de Alejandro Matamoros, es el son cubano ‘Lágrimas negras’, quise hacer una versión mía muy particular, con un arreglo diferente”, destacó. El intérprete añadió que su primer sencillo “A donde sea” se grabó en Nicaragua, bajo la dirección de Silvio Valladares, y muestra una mezcla de imágenes en las que baila al ritmo del tema. “Fue un sencillo natural, desde que lo compuse y lo grabé dijimos que era una rola que de forma inmediata atraparía a mis seguidores, además de que es mi favorito”, apuntó. Don Sevilla continuará en México con la promoción de su nuevo disco, para después proseguir su gira por Costa Rica y Guatemala.

Inspired by a true story, When the Game Stands Tall brings

to life the incredible winning streak of the De La Salle High School football team: 151 straight victories over 12 years. All along the way, as Coach Bob Ladouceur builds his seemingly invincible national powerhouse, he has emphasized purpose and significance rather than streaks and titles.

But when real-life adversity leaves the team reeling, the Spartans must decide if the sacrifice, commitment, and teamwork they have always trusted in can rebuild what is now disintegrating around them. Starring Jim Caviezel, Michael Chiklis, Alexander Ludwig, Clancy Brown, and Laura Dern.

Co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller reunite to bring Miller’s visually stunning “Sin City” graphic novels back to the screen in SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR. Weaving together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales, the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more reviled inhabitants. SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR is the follow up to Rodriguez and Miller’s 2005 groundbreaking film, FRANK MILLER’S SIN CITY.

Oración de los Inmigrantes a Santo Toribio Romo Padre Santo, tú que enviaste a tu hijo a proclamar el reino de cielos entre nosotros, y él obediente a tu voluntad llevó a cabo la misión que le encomendaste. Mario Jiménez Castillo El Observador Toribio Romo González(1920-1928) nació en Santa Ana de Guadalupe, Jalostotitlán, Jalisco, México. Sus padres y demás familia se ocupan en labores agrícolas. Desde muy niño se observó su vocación hacia el sacerdocio. Su hermana María siempre le apoyó y gracias a ella se animó a ingresar al Seminario Auxiliar de San Juan de los Lagos. Ya en el seminario y siendo un adolescente comenzó su gran obra: auxiliaba a los enfermos, procuraba alimentos a los más necesitados, era compasivo con los animales y brindaba protección a los huérfanos, inmigrantes y desamparados. A los 21 años de edad ingresó al Seminario de Guadalajara. En 1927 siendo ya

sacerdote, fue trasladado a la Parroquia de Tequila, en esos a��os había estallado la guerra de los cristeros, las autoridades civiles y militares perseguían con severidad a los sacerdotes, se les acusaba de exaltar a las masas en contra de la opresión militar y del gobierno. Tequila era un municipio peligroso para vivir siendo párroco o sacerdote. Santo Toribio se las ingenió para celebrar misas clandestinas y atender a los fieles católicos en una fábrica abandonada. Su hermano Román que también se había ordenado como sacerdote estaba con él y su hermana María les ayudaba a ambos en su misión religiosa. En 1928 tuvo que esconderse pues su vida corría peligro, le buscaban para asesinarlo, una noche sus verdugos dieron con su escondite y

le acribillaron. Estuvo agonizante por varios minutos y antes de morir le confesó a sus hermanos que había ofrecido su vida a cambio de un cese de hostilidades contra los sacerdotes y la fe católica. Santo Toribio murió como mártir de la fe cristiana el 25 de febrero de 1928. En el año 1948 sus restos fueron trasladados del panteón municipal de Tequila a la capilla construida por él mismo en Jalostotitlán. Miles dan testimonio de sus milagrosas intervenciones, especialmente en asuntos migratorios, existen millares de testimonios de fieles que dan fe de la ayuda que han recibido del Santo, quién por decreto popular es proclamado el Santo de los inmigrantes. En 1922 fue Beatificado y el 21 de mayo del año 2000 fue canonizado.

Te pedimos por intercesión de Santo ToribioRomo, que cuides y protejas a nuestros familiares que han partido a tierras lejanas en busca de superación propia y de nuestras familias, cuídalos de todo mal, bendícelos en salud y en trabajo y haz que se mantengan firmes en la fe, creyentesen las bondades del cielo y sean fieles testigos del amparo del Señor Jesús. Ilumínales con la santa y bienaventurada luz del Todopoderoso. Amén.

Roddy Scheer & Doug Moss EarthTalk The Antarctic continent, roughly the size of the United States and Mexico combined, is composed of rock covered by glaciers some 16,000 feet thick. The glaciers form from fallen snow compacting into successive layers of ice, and they eventually move downhill toward the coasts and “calve” into the ocean as icebergs and eventually melt out into the sea. Antarctica and Greenland combined hold about 99 percent of the globe’s freshwater ice. According to the National Snow & Ice Data Center, the result of the entire Antarctic continent melting out completely would be sea level rise of about 200 feet around the world, which could in turn lead to untold devastation. While no one can be sure how hot things will get as a result of global warming, most climate models don’t forecast conditions hot enough to cause the wholesale melt-out of Antarctica. In fact, the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) reports that the East Antarctic Ice Sheet, which constitutes about twothirds of the world’s south-

ernmost and iciest continent, is remaining relatively stable, with some slight melting that is balanced out by new winter snows. Because East Antarctica rests on rock that is higher than sea level, it is unlikely to collapse. In fact, East Antarctica’s ice cover may thicken moving forward due to predicted increases in snowfall amounts over the coming decades. But on the west side of Antarctica, ice across an area roughly the size of Texas called the Amundsen Sea Embayment (ASE) is already thinning rapidly in large part as a result of surrounding waters warming up due to changing ocean circulation patterns.  Many scientists believe that these ocean changes are happening as a result of human-induced global warming as well as thinning of the stratospheric ozone layer. “This is an area that has always caused glaciologists concern, because here the bedrock beneath the ice is a long way below sea-level and the ice is only kept in place because it is thick enough to rest on the bed,” reports BAS. “Thinning of the ice around the coast could lead to glacier acceleration and further

thinning of the ice sheet. Essentially, the ice sheet may be unstable, and the recent pattern of thinning could be a precursor to wholesale loss of the ASE ice sheet.” Meanwhile, researchers from NASA and UC Irvine studying the ASE ice sheet report a “continuous and rapid retreat” of glaciers there and think that there is “no [major] obstacle that would prevent the glaciers from further retreat.” They worry that within a millennium and perhaps as soon as two centuries, the ASE could melt out entirely—leading to between four and 10 feet of sea level rise around the world—if moderate warming models prove to be correct. Of course, we can all play a role in preventing such scenarios by reducing our carbon footprints. Take fewer airplane trips. Buy organic food. Walk, bike or take public transit to work. If you must drive, get a hybrid or electric car. Wear a sweater instead of turning up the heat. And urge legislators to push new laws that limit greenhouse gas emissions by industry, utilities and other big polluters. It may be now or never.

(NOTIMEX) Encabezada por la doble medallista olímpica y ex campeona mundial, la sinaloense María del Rosario Espinoza, este miércoles viajó la selección de taekwondo que participará en los Abiertos de Argentina y Costa Rica. La delegación nacional, conformada por 24 exponentes, hará la primera parada en Buenos Aires, Argentina, donde competirán los días 23 y 24 del presente mes, en tanto en Costa Rica el torneo se disputará del 29 al 31. Ambos certámenes otorgan puntos para la clasificación mundial, con miras a lograr un sitio en los Juegos Olímpicos Río de Janeiro 2016, en Brasil. Además de los puntos que buscarán para mejorar su posición en el ranking, esta gira también servirá para conformar las selecciones que competirán en el Campeonato Panamericano, que concede 40 unidades para

la clasificación, y el Abierto Mexicano, que se efectuará del 11 al 15 de septiembre en Aguascalientes. Antes de subir al avión que la trasladaría a Argentina, Rosario Espinoza señaló que su meta en esta gira es conseguir los 10 puntos que están en disputa tanto en Argentina como en Costa Rica; asimismo, señaló que estos torneos le servirán de preparación con miras a su participación en el Abierto Mexicano. Finalmente, junto con Espinoza Espinoza también viajaron Uriel Adriano, Briseida Acosta, Itzel Manjarrez, Jannet Alegría, Jessica Chávez, Paulina Armería y Diana Lara. Completan el equipo Victoria Heredia, Anel Félix, Ana Olivan, Linda Torres, Marco Riaño, Johann Rodríguez, Saúl Gutiérrez, Abel Mendoza, Isaac Torres, Idulio Islas, René Lizárraga, Damián Villa, Carlos Navarro, César Rodríguez, Misael López y Salvador Álvarez.

drid, la directiva de Real Sociedad no permitió que otro de sus futbolistas estrella dejara el equipo y se desmantelara el conjunto blanquiazul. Por ello y por su calidad, su capacidad goleadora, sus ganas de permanecer en el conjunto blanquiazul y por la afición, Jokin Aperribay, presidente de la Real, viajó a Londres e hizo lo necesario para que Vela no abandonara Donostia. Carlos Vela, quien viste la camiseta blanquiazul, ha jugado 125 partidos en los cuales ha logrado 45 goles y cada día se encuentra mejor de la fascitis plantar que le ha tenido de baja toda la pretemporada.
