WWW.EL-OBSERVADOR.COM 18-month Improvement in Crime / The San Jose Police Department has released and posted mid-year crime data for the first half of 2014 showing a significant decrease in crime since 2012. Serious crimes of all types dropped by 9.1% from January to June of 2014 (over the same period in 2013). That drop builds on a 10.3% decrease for calendar year 2013. Homicides dropped by 20.8% in the first six months of 2014. In 2013, homicides declined by 15.6% over 2012. Violent crimes in San Jose in 2013 were at the second-lowest level in a decade. County of Santa Clara to Engage Abode Services for Groundbreaking Pay for Success Project / The County of Santa Clara Board of Supervisors approved the selection of Abode Services, one of the Bay Area’s largest and most effective providers of housing services, as the lead service provider for an innovative project to address chronic homelessness. Through this new program, some of the most vulnerable individuals experiencing homelessness in the county will be provided with housing and supportive services. Unlike traditional government-funded programs, however, this effort will employ a “Pay for Success” model under which the County pays for services if and when Abode delivers results – in this case, the stability and wellness of homeless clients. The Affordable Care Act supports patient-centered medical homes in health centers / Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell today announced $35.7 million in Affordable Care Act funding to 147 health centers in 44 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico to support patient-centered medical homes through new construction and facility renovations. The patient-centered medical home delivery model is designed to improve quality of care through team-based coordination of care, treating the many needs of the patient at once, increasing access to care, and empowering the patient to be a partner in their own care. Casi un cuarto de la generación del nuevo milenio está bajo extrema tensión financiera / TD Bank, America›s Most Convenient Bank® (el Banco Más Conveniente de América), relevó los resultados de un nuevo estudio enfocado en los principales retos financieros para los jóvenes de la generación del nuevo milenio, entre 24-34 años de edad. El sondeo, una extensión de la Encuesta sobre la Educación Financiera de TD Bank, reveló que el 22 por ciento de la generación del nuevo milenio y el 17 por ciento de los hispanos en ese grupo generacional sienten que están bajo extrema presión financiera. Además, el 55 por ciento de la generación del nuevo milenio y el 60 por ciento de los hispanos en dicho grupo generacional se sienten capaces de manejar sus finanzas, pero están teniendo dificultades para encontrar el bienestar financiero. La encuesta a nivel nacional incluyó a más de 1,000 jóvenes, entre ellos 150 hispanos, para determinar su preparación financiera ante los principales acontecimientos de la vida, desde cómo ir a la universidad hasta la compra de una casa.

A Labor Day Tribute to Job Corps local law enforcement is not getting away with the murder, especially of those who are persons of color (Blacks and Latinos). Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR

Why continue to analyze that ‘police shooting of Michael Brown,’ at Ferguson, Missouri? Unfortunately, a second police shooting occurred at a neighboring jurisdiction just three miles away, which resulted in the death of another negro youth. This was followed by the investigative reporting which established that every week, somewhere in America, a person of color is killed by police. In the Chicago metropolitan area, some 27 Black individuals are killed each weekend. Each killing is followed by release of information which amounts to attempts of ‘character assassination’ of the victims. Traditionally, it is the ‘Internal Affairs’ unit within each police department which performs analytical assessment of each ‘police use of deadly force’ incident. Very few police officers are deemed to merit criminal indictment and prosecution. In addition, mainstream media seem to thrive on presenting persons of color as the wrongdoers worthy of character assassination. All this has become too much to accept anymore, especially in communities that have high unemployment rates and inadequate incomes. If an excessive illegitimate paramilitary police response to peaceful, non-violent public protests infuriates and alarms you and you don’t want to just accept this anymore as “the way it is”...or “there is nothing that can be done”, then it is incumbent upon you to learn about what can be done so that you cease to be complicit in these matters. If you want to see those law enforcement officers who use ‘deadly force’ charged with ‘murder’, then it is time to advocate for establishment of more civilian oversight, monitoring, and audits to ensure that the

If you are inspired by those who have been demonized and despised for years ,who have now stood up and begun to insist on being treated as human beings rather than animals, then you must decide to join them or not support their quest for justice, respect, and equity. Along with many, many people from all walks of life, who have now courageously stood their ground, you must decide to join. no longer is it all right to be a sideline spectator. Again, you must take appropriate action to support or resist what is happening. In this nation, the ideal that ‘All persons are equal under our system of ‘justice, law & order’, and when voting the majority is supposed to rule. Those practices which hinder registering to vote must be removed/addressed. The Black and Latino community must get their citizens to register to vote, learn about the issues, and then vote in their own best interests. your vote is the voice that makes you the constituent of an elected representative. If no vote is manifested, then that community does not exist and is not considered when elected officials debate and craft legislation. A lot of tax dollars are not allocated to programs directed at those communities which do not ‘Get Out Their Vote’. There are many ‘Whites’ who practice ‘manifest destiny’.....i.e. they believe that they are destined to rule this nation. During the 1810-1850 period this manifest destiny concept was used to create the territorial content of today’s America. And it included the invasion of Mexico under the Polk Administration which resulted in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo (1846). The Mexican historians call that war “The Invasion of Mexico by U.S.A.” The invasion of Iraq under the G.W. Bush Administration is strikingly similar. In both cases, the American people were misinformed and mis-led.

If you want a world without the endless chain of murders of Black and Brown youth by a system which has no place, no future for them because of current inequities in our society, then the current practices of those who conduct commerce must begin to address not only profit generating activities, but also the need of our domestic labor force to be gainfully employed; to be paid living wages. Access to jobs and education must become gender and ‘color-blind’. Access to any and all opportunity must become color-blind. All must learn how to become engaged, involved and committed as stakeholders who takes appropriate responsible actions. The current concept of ‘ownership’ must become flavored with stewardship so the natural resources of this nation are used to do the greatest good for the greatest number. By devising a systems of providing for basic needs, the American consumer economy can become re-invigorated. This would benefit all, even the very wealthy, because the money would trickle up as ‘a return on investments made’.

are hiring. And for good reason. not only does Job Corps provide work-based learning and on-the-job training, but kids who haven’t completed high school can earn their diploma or GED. Job Corps also teaches discipline, teamwork, leadership, communication and problem solving – skills increasingly essential to success not only at work, but in life.

Thomas E. Perez, UnITED STATES SECrETAry OF LABOr

Fifty years ago, President Lyndon Johnson made good on his promise of a “War on Poverty” with the Economic Opportunity Act. As he signed the new law, he declared that it “will strike at poverty’s roots” in a way that “is prudent and practical… consistent with our national ideals.”

Today, manifest destiny still exists as the philosophy that embraces America as a whole. Manifest destiny is an intangible ideology which created America. It now needs to fully include all who reside in America. In its simplest form, Manifest Destiny is the systematic body of concepts, beliefs, and practices which empower and invigorate American life and its culture.

One of the bill’s key elements was the establishment of Job Corps, a residential education and training program for low-income young people run by the U.S. Labor Department. At 125 centers in 48 states, students get the skills and confidence necessary to succeed in good jobs in more than 100 occupations -- from auto maintenance to information technology, health care to hospitality, and construction to culinary arts.

The American Dream is still possible. The unfortunate martyrdom of Michael Brown revealed to all the unjust and unfair practices which denied people of color the access to the ideals of American Democracy through our racism practices. now that we are all aware and most of us are motivated to make evolutionary changes, a ‘new American Democracy’ must emerge wherein all are treated fairly/equitably under our system of law, order, and justice. This opportunity must be exploited to the fullest extent possible today.

Here in San Jose, California, the San Jose Job Corps Center offers training in 13 areas including Health Care, Construction, and advanced training with the Transportation Communications Union. And local employers like Tesla Motors, Valley Transportation Authority, Greyhound, Southwest Airlines, Amtrak, O’Conner Hospital and Levi’s Stadium consider the San Jose Job Corps Center to be a pipeline for skilled talent. They turn to Jobs Corps first when they

Serving our society’s most disconnected young people is, without question, an ambitious undertaking. So many Job Corps students have already been failed by the education system. roughly three-quarters are high-school dropouts. Many are homeless or aging out of foster care; others are runaways and juvenile offenders. Without Job Corps, many of them are lost. With Job Corps, they have a chance. Tackling deeply-entrenched social problems is never easy. But we don’t kick people to the curb simply because of a challenge – both as a matter of social justice and, more pragmatically, because we can’t afford to squander human capital in a competitive global economy. And Job Corps works. More than 80 percent of Job Corps students were placed in jobs, entered the military, or continued their education in 2013. The San Jose Job Corps Center placed 87% of

its graduates in 2013. Out of difficult circumstances, they take control over their own destinies and punch their tickets to the middle class. They become mechanics, or welders, or pastry chefs— productive and contributing members of our society and our economy. Some of them go on to become doctors, entertainment executives and judges. One Job Corps alum, George Foreman, went on to become a heavyweight boxing champion, and a successful entrepreneur. Because it embodies one of our most cherished, foundational principles -- that opportunity in America should not be reserved just for the lucky -- Job Corps has traditionally enjoyed bipartisan support in the U.S. Congress and local government. As it should. Fifty years since its founding, we still need Job Corps. It is no longer just a program; it’s become a part of who we are as a nation. I salute all those young people who made the decision to invest in themselves by gaining skills through Job Corps. On Labor Day 2014, as we celebrate the contributions that working people make to the strength and prosperity of our nation, let’s also celebrate the Job Corps students who will go on to make their own contributions. They will be a big reason to celebrate Labor Day for years to come.

BUSINESS

(BPT) One in two American workers are projected to be selfemployed by 2020, according to MBO Partners. While the shifting economy has surely pushed some people into independent work, many have chosen it. Career goals for contemporary professionals are changing, and given how quickly this trend is taking hold in the United States, today’s employees who aspire to be tomorrow’s contract workers, need to prepare now to navigate this changing landscape. To help professionals effectively transition to contract work, the Career Advisory Board, established by DeVry University, worked with MBO Partners, Inc., a provider of back office services for self-employed professionals, to conduct a new study, The Future of

Jason Alderman Practical Money Hay mucha gente que redacta un testamento para que sus herederos puedan gozar de sus bienes sin problemas. Pero, ¿qué sucede si a usted le ocurre lo contrario: sus ahorros se han visto diezmados por la recesión, malas inversiones o, simplemente, por haber vivido más de lo esperado, y ahora tiene una montaña de cuentas que no puede pagar?

Work: Preparing for Independence, which examined the attributes and skills of those who are gainfully self-employed to help aspiring contractors get and stay ahead in this everchanging work environment. According to the study, professionals are choosing selfemployment in order to control the type of work assignments they pursue (67 percent), to have a greater sense of flexibility and work-life balance (64 percent), and to follow a passion (59 percent). “While they are young, millennials should be proactive in taking advantage of intrapreneurship and training opportunities, as well as acquiring transferable skills like project management, budgeting, sales, and marketing, in an established organization,” says Alexandra Levit, Career Advisory Board member. “This will be

¿Sus hijos heredarán sus deudas cuando usted muera? La respuesta más corta es: en la mayoría de los casos, no. Pero hay veces en que alguien puede llegar a ser legalmente responsable por el pago de sus deudas después de su muerte. Además, suele haber acreedores agresivos que persiguen y presionan a los herederos para que paguen deudas por las que no son responsables, y los herederos las pagan para que los dejen tranquilos.

Survey respondents said that in addition to having solid expertise

Si teme que su herencia sea una pila de cuentas impagas, debe saber y estar preparado para lo siguiente: En general, los hijos no deben hacerse cargo de las deudas no garantizadas de sus padres –como las tarjetas de crédito, los préstamos personales y las facturas médicas –que no están respaldadas con bienes físicos. Si el dinero legado no alcanza para pagar esas cuentas, los acreedores tendrán que condonarlas.

in a particular field, successful contract workers must be selfstarters who have the ability to cope with uncertainty, including an unpredictable income stream. Many contractors work remotely, have multiple clients to report to, and have to juggle multiple projects at once. Assess your strengths and weaknesses before jumping into contract work, make sure you have an organized action plan to help you start off on the right foot, and always

Pero, hay varias excepciones: • Si su hijo, cónyuge u otro familiar es co-titular de una tarjeta de crédito o préstamo (ej. hipoteca, préstamo automotor, préstamo personal), tienen la misma responsabilidad de pago que usted. Por eso debe pensarlo bien antes de aceptar ser co-titular de un préstamo. • Si alguien es co-titular de una cuenta suya –es decir que sus ingresos e historial crediticio fueron utilizados para obtener el préstamo o la tarjeta de crédito –por lo general, son responsables por la cancelación del saldo. • Las personas viudas son responsables por las deudas de su cónyuge fallecido si viven en un estado en el que se aplique el régimen de bienes gananciales. Debe saber que los usuarios autorizados de sus tarjetas de crédito no son responsables por el pago del saldo porque no fueron los que originalmente solicitaron el crédito, sino que simplemente se “acoplaron” a su historial crediticio para comenzar a desarrollar el propio.

In-person networking still trumps social media: The survey pool reported that while social media is important for contractors’ branding and reputation, it often does not generate income. In fact, just 6 percent said social media outreach led to paid project work. Therefore, create strong profiles on sites like LinkedIn and Google+, but refrain from spending too much time on these networks and make sure you still build in face time. Seek in-person meetings, attend events and workshops, and be visible to your future clients beyond your social media accounts. Start small and look local: Although technological advances allow many self-employed professionals to offer their services globally, the majority of the re-

No obstante, para evitar que los usuarios autorizados sean molestados por los acreedores después de su muerte, tal vez sea conveniente quitarlos de sus cuentas. Si tiene deudas garantizadas pendientes al momento de su fallecimiento, como una hipoteca o un préstamo automotor, éstas deben ser canceladas con su masa hereditaria o el acreedor puede quedarse con el bien en cuestión. Por ejemplo, si estaba planeando dejarle su casa a sus hijos, ellos deberán cancelar el saldo o continuar pagando la hipoteca, los impuestos y el seguro; de lo contrario, corren el riesgo de que se ejecute la hipoteca. Dependiendo de las leyes de su estado, hay algunos tipos de activos, como el seguro de vida y los beneficios jubilatorios, que pueden legarse a los beneficiarios sin tener que pasar por un proceso sucesorio ni ser gravados, lo cual los protege de los acreedores. Solo tenga en cuenta que, si no designa a nadie como be-

spondents still obtain most of their work assignments from within their immediate metropolitan area. While it’s a good long-term goal to think about how you might leverage a larger and more diverse pool of potential clients, aspiring contractors should first embark on being visible in their local communities. It is also a good rule of thumb to start small with only one or two clients until you master the craft of contract work. “As independence is becoming more desired in today’s economy, professionals need to stand out by building strong networks in their communities and being visible to local employers that use contract work,” says Gene Zaino, president and CEO, MBO Partners. “Use your time wisely - stay focused on your core, billable expertise and find ways to outsource other non-essential functions.”

neficiario de una póliza de seguro o de sus beneficios jubilatorios, los acreedores pueden recurrir a su masa hereditaria para cobrarse las deudas. Por eso, es conveniente nombrar a personas específicas como beneficiarios –y beneficiarios de respaldo, por si estos fallecen primero. Además, si su beneficiario es co-titular de alguna de sus deudas, los acreedores pueden perseguirlo para cobrar lo adeudado. Consulte con un abogado especializado en sucesiones o una clínica legal que esté familiarizada con las leyes sucesorias y fiscales de su estado. Se suele ofrecer asistencia legal gratuita o de bajo costo para las personas de bajos ingresos. En resumen: Si existe la posibilidad de que deje deudas impagas cuando muera, mejor alerte a su familia ahora para que juntos puedan planificar el camino a seguir. Seguramente no querrá que sus seres queridos se lleven esta desagradable sorpresa en medio de tanto dolor.

Aid Recipients Can Apply for Phones at Social Services Sites   Santa Clara County The Santa Clara County Social Services Agency announced that it has agreed to make it possible for interested and eligible individuals to learn about, and apply for, a free wireless service for low-income county residents. Interested residents who meet the eligibility requirements, including those enrolled in CalWORKS, CalFresh, MediCal or General Assistance programs, may apply.   Under the California LifeLine Program, the County is allowing Budget Mobile, a cell phone vendor to accept applications for the service from eligible low-income households at two of the Agency sites.  Eligible customers will receive a free mobile phone with 1,000

minutes and unlimited texting every month. Phone features include voicemail, call waiting, caller ID and access to 911 service and nationwide coverage.   “It is nearly impossible to function without access to a phone,” said County of Santa Clara Supervisor Cindy Chavez, Chair of the Board’s Children, Seniors and Families. “The Wireless LifeLine service will help clients to access basic services, such as inquiring about employment and health services.”    The California LifeLine Program, a government benefit program supported by the federal Universal Service Fund (USF) and funded through the Public Utilities Commission, provides discounts on monthly telephone service for eligible low-income subscribers.  Its goal is to ensure that all people living in the United States have the opportunities and security offered by a

phone service, such as connecting people to jobs, family and emergency services. In addition to traditional landline service, earlier this year, the California LifeLine program was updated to include discounts to qualifying lowincome consumers on wireless service.   “We are able to make it possible for clients to access the Wireless LifeLine service at no cost to the County,” said Bruce Wagstaff, Director, County of Santa Clara Social Services Agency.  “We are simply dedicating space in two of our existing facilities where people can come to apply for the service.”    Eligible and interested clients can apply for this free cell phone and service Monday through Friday, between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., at the CalWORKs Employment Services office main lobby at 1879 Senter Road, San Jose,

and the Social Services South County site at 379 Tompkins Ct., in Gilroy. They need to bring a photo ID such as a driver’s license, and ID from DMV or a school ID card, as well as a proof of low income status such as an EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) card or Medi-CAL card.      Within 10 days, eligible customers will receive a free mobile phone with 1,000 minutes and unlimited texting every month with the company’s California Connect Plan.  According to federal rules, eligible low-income consumers cannot receive more than one LifeLine discount per household.  Individuals may not use their own phones for the program and may not keep current phone numbers.  An eligible consumer may receive a discount on either a wireline or wireless service, but not both.  There is no cost to

eligible individuals for the current service offered by Budget Mobile, unless they exceed the 1,000 minutes.   A consumer, whose household currently is receiving more than one LifeLine service, must select a single LifeLine provider and contact the other provider to de-enroll from their program.  Consumers violating this rule may also be subject to criminal and/or civil penalties. For those already having an existing California LifeLine at home, it can be transferred to the Budget Mobile cell phone that is now being offered at County sites. To participate in the Wireless LifeLine program offered by Budget Mobile, consumers with proper proof of eligibility may be qualified to enroll.  They must either have an income that is at or below 150% of the federal  Poverty Guidelines  or participate in one of the following government assistance programs:

San Jose CALIFORNIA Elizabeth Calhoon, Google Certified Teacher and Manager of Educational Technology Services for the Santa Clara County Office of Education, conducts dozens of trainings to help teachers integrate technology into their Common Core-based lessons throughout the year, including coaching around Google Apps for Education. While many districts have embraced Google Apps in their classrooms, she noticed that no resource guide or handbook existed for teachers to reference the functional uses of these applications after they’d taken her classes. In response to this unmet need, Calhoon and a team

AUGUST 29 - SEPTEMBER 4, 2014

of Google Certified Teachers, including Kyle Brumbaugh, Robert Pronovost, Ramsey Musallam and Catlin Tucker, teamed up to author a ‘cookbook’ for Google Apps for Education, complete with all the ‘ingredients, preparations, directions and serving suggestions’ that educators would need to be successful in the classroom.  All of the lessons, or ‘recipes,’ in Creating a Google Apps Classroom: An Educator’s Cookbook are aligned with the Common Core State Standards and the National Educational Technology Standards (ISTE), and were also designed to be flexible across grade levels and content areas. “Helping teachers use powerful tools and strategies like those in my book has

been my passion for many years,” said Calhoon. “I appreciate that I’m able to provide yet another resource for teachers and administrators through this book, as well as through the work I get to do here at the Santa Clara County Office of Education.” It took about a year to write and edit the book, due to the ever-changing nature of technology and the web, while the entire process took place online, with the team utilizing Google Docs and holding meetings via Google+ Hangouts. Creating a Google Apps Classroom: An Educator’s Cookbook was published on July 1, 2014 and is also available as an ebook.

SACRAMENTO Eligible districts and charter schools are encouraged to apply for new funding to help school sites connect to a high-speed network in time for next spring’s new online assessments, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson said today, as he announced the Broadband Infrastructure Improvement Grant (BIIG) Program. “The real world thrives on interconnectivity and so must our children’s education in order to prepare them for college and careers,” Torlakson said. “With the help of this grant, even children in the farthest reaches of the state will have a chance to

connect to the world around them.” The BIIG funding opportunity is being administered by the K-12 High Speed Network, in consultation with the California Department of Education and the State Board of Education. The goal is to help students, educators, and staff connect to a reliable high-speed network so they can implement the new computer-based California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) assessments in the 2015 spring testing window. Funding was provided by a one-time Proposition 98 General Fund re-appropriation to support network connectivity.

Local educational agencies are eligible for nearly $27 million in BIIG funding. Priority for funding will be given to those school sites that without such help would be unable to conduct the CAASPP. The grants must be used to enhance school site Internet connections. Another component of the BIIG Program is a report on the overall status of network connectivity in California’s schools. This report will also be completed by the K-12 High-Speed Network, and is due by March 1, 2015, to the Department of Finance, the Legislative Analyst’s Office, and the budget committees of each house of the Legislature.

Si usted sufre de la esclerosis la­teral amiotrófica, considere ins­cribirse en el Registro. La información que usted proporciona podría ayudar a que los científicos de­rroten esta enfermedad. (NAPSM) Los esfuerzos para investigar y analizar la esclerosis lateral amiotrófica (ALS, por sus siglas en inglés), también conocida como la enfermedad de Lou Gehrig, han sido esporádicos en EE.UU. hasta hoy en día. El Registro Nacional de ALS (National ALS Registry) proporciona a las personas que viven con esta enfermedad la oportunidad de ayudar a que los científicos puedan identificar las causas, tratamientos y curas posibles. La ALS avanza rápidamente; es una enfermedad neurológica invariablemente fatal que afecta las células de los nervios que hacen que los músculos funcionen en la parte superior e inferior del cuerpo; la enfermedad causa que estas células dejen de funcionar y se mueran. El Registro, creado por legislación del Congreso de este país, está di­señado para recolectar todos los casos nuevos y existentes de ALS en EE.UU., proporcionando

información sobre cuántas personas verdaderamente sufren de esta enfermedad y ayuda a que los médicos y científicos la comprendan mejor. Se estima que entre 20,000 y 30,000 personas tienen ALS, pero aún no hay una cifra exacta; tampoco se requiere que los médicos o pacientes reporten casos nuevos. La Agencia para Sustancias Tóxicas y el Registro de Enferme­dades (ATSDR por sus siglas en inglés), una agencia relacionada a los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC, por sus siglas en inglés), desarrolló el Registro Nacional de ALS (National ALS Registry) en el 2010 y ha trabajado arduamente desde entonces para asegurarse de que todos los pacientes con ALS estén registrados. El registro es una base de datos segura, disponible en línea, para recolectar información básica de personas con ALS. Los pacientes pueden inscribirse fácilmente desde

cualquier lugar que tenga acceso a Internet. Al inscribirse, responderán a preguntas breves y sencillas, tales como si hicieron el servicio militar o si fuman. Los investigadores usan esta información para aprender más sobre la enfermedad. El registro también informa a los pacientes con ALS sobre los ensayos clínicos en los que podrían participar y sobre los servicios de apoyo en sus comunidades, incluyendo sucursales, oficinas, centros y clínicas de la asociación para la lucha contra la esclerosis lateral amiotrófica de EE.UU. (ALS Asso­ciation), y la Asociación de Distrofia Muscular de Estados Unidos (MDA, por sus siglas en inglés). El registro hará posible que se lleven a cabo más estudios que posiblemente ayudarán a derrotar la enfermedad, algo que podría cambiar la vida de generaciones futuras.

American Counseling Association With every new school year comes new opportunities and challenges as kids head back into the classroom. It may be a new teacher to face, new friends to make, new tough subjects or a whole range of other issues that can leave a student at any age feeling anxious and worried. And while most of those issues seem to work themselves out in the first few days or weeks of classes, there can be challenges for your child, both academically and socially, that might present real problems for the coming school year. While the classroom teacher may be where most parents first turn for help for their child, an important resource that shouldn’t be overlooked is the school counselor. That’s especially true for students in middle school and higher when students may

be spending only one period each day with a particular teacher. That classroom teacher may have a limited view of your child, while the school counselor is often able to gain a more encompassing picture of what may be happening. Unfortunately, many parents do not realize how important a resource the school counselor can be. School counselors are probably among the best educated and trained professionals in your child’s school. Every state requires school counselors to be certified by the State Department of Education. Most states require school counselors to have an undergraduate degree in elementary or secondary education and to meet the requirements to be certified as a teacher. Several states even require a number of years of classroom experience. Many school counselors are not only experienced classroom teachers, but hold a Masters degree in counseling or a related field.

As well-trained professional counselors, school counselors understand both the educational process and the developmental stages that children go through. They understand the significant self-concept developmental issues that can occur through puberty and early adolescence, and know how to help students facing difficulties at such times. While a school counselor’s primary job is to help the student, they can also provide valuable assistance to parents facing problems with their children, especially problems such as a child unhappy with school and reluctant to attend. It’s a good idea to make an appointment with your child’s school counselor early in the school year. Find out what he or she, as a professional counselor, has to offer and how that expertise and experience can help benefit both your child and you.

(FAMILY FEATURES) With 93 percent of Americans consuming it at least once a month, and an average annual consumption of 46 pieces per person — it’s easy to see that pizza is a national obsession. Now is the time to bring the pizza party to the patio and bake pizzas outdoors — and there are several ways to get it done. Directly on grill: Cook pizza right on the grill grate. Preheat the grill to 500°F and place the dough — without toppings — on the grate, directly over the fire. After a few minutes, flip the crust using tongs. Then add toppings on the grilled side. Pre-cook raw meat and fish toppings before placing them on the dough. Close the grill hood and continue cooking for several minutes. Don’t overload the pizza, as the crust may get soggy and some toppings won’t be consistently heated. Cooked on stone: A pizza stone is another way to bake pizzas outdoors. It distributes heat more evenly and extracts moisture so crusts come out crispier. Preheat the stone at 500°F in the indirect grilling zone for about an hour. Cook any raw meat or fish toppings during this time. After the stone is heated, assemble the pizza with the cooked toppings and place it directly on the stone. Cook the pizza with the grill hood closed at 500°F for about 10-12 minutes, or until it’s done and the crust is browned. At the five-minute mark, rotate the pizza 180 degrees to cook evenly. Pizza oven: For those who want a pie like the one they get in artisan pizzerias, a pizza oven is the way to go. With some ovens reaching temperatures of 800°F or higher, pizzas can be cooked in just a few minutes. 1 tablespoon prepared mayonnaise 1/2 teaspoon sherry vinegar 1/4 teaspoon maple syrup 1 (10-ounce) ball of dough 2 ounces cheddar cheese, cut into small rectangles 4 slices bacon, cooked to about 75 percent doneness and cut up 1 small head romaine lettuce, chilled and sliced crosswise 8 heirloom cherry tomatoes, quartered lengthwise

BLT Pizza

Whisk together mayonnaise, vinegar and maple syrup to create dressing. Set Servings: One 10-inch pizza aside. Working on lightly-floured surface, form dough into 10-inch pizza. Distribute cheese and bacon on dough. Transfer pizza to pizza peel and transfer to pizza oven or grill. Cook until cheese is melted and crust is browned. Cooking in hot pizza oven takes less than 3 minutes. Cooking on grill at 500°F requires about 10 minutes. Remove pizza; let cool for several minutes. Slice into quarters; top with romaine lettuce and tomatoes. Drizzle on dressing.

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

Local Leaders join a broad bi-partisan coalition to ask Governor Brown to stop the implementation of a regulation that raises fuel prices at the pump beginning January 1, 2015

San Jose California Local elected leaders and businesses voice their disappointment today that Senate Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg refused to schedule a hearing to discuss Assembly Bill 69 (Perea) legislation that would delay a new hidden gas tax that could increase the cost of gasoline and diesel up to 76 cents per gallon starting next year.  The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is set to move fuels under the cap-and-trade program. This move is designed to increase the price of gas in order to provide funding for more government pet projects. It is ironic, given the fact that Senate Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg warned the “changes could bring spikes and wild fluctuations in gas prices.”  “Everyone in my district will be impacted by this new

gas tax,” said Councilmember Pete Constant (District 1).  “I support AB 69 simply because the people who will be most affected by this tax are the least aware of it, and we need time to educate the public and discuss the impacts.” Working families and small businesses will be the ones carrying the heavy burden of the new gas tax. Higher gas prices make driving to work, taking kids to school or going to the grocery store that much more expensive. The worst part of the new tax is that Californians are unaware and unprepared for this drastic increase in fuel prices.  “I am very worried about how the new gas tax will impact my business and my company’s ability to deliver goods to the local markets and stores,” said, Gary Minardi, President & CEO of

San Jose Distribution Services. “As a California business, we will find it that much harder to compete with companies based in neighboring states as these costs increase.”  As the cost of a gallon of fuel is already rising rapidly, the new tax will create a major impact on the costs for fuel and products that no one can forecast. Families and businesses still struggling to emerge from the Great Recession should expect to see fuel costs increasing by 16 cents to 76 cents, according to CARB’s own economic analysis. If passed AB 69 would have provided reasonable pause to review the regulation.  Otherwise next year every visit to a gas station will be a very expensive one.

Veronica T. Avendaño EL OBSERVADOR He is a CEO and he does not have a college degree. The educated and self taught, Josué García is the current Chief Executive Office for the Santa Clara and San Benito counties Construction and Building Trades Council. García, a native of Durango, Mexico said he “grew up very poor.” He eventually left Mexico to come to the United States after living there for nearly two decades with a goal of helping his family out of poverty. WIth a list of prestigious job titles and community recognition, García’s first actual job in the United States would fall under the “unofficial” contracted worker category. “One the first jobs I had, I used to be at a corner, like the Home Depot workers do. I used to get people to take me to go to work,” recalled García. García chuckled as he recalled another job he held, working for a company that created the standard

little green baskets for strawberries. Eventually, García’s construction jobs led him to something greater.

García actively helps many workers whose wages are being stolen through wage theft from contractors.

“I’ve always wanted to have a good paying job since I was little, so I went to the unions, for construction, looking for work. Finally, the roofers union, gave me the opportunity,” said García. For almost ten years, García worked as a roofer which led him to run for the position of union representative. García said that union representatives must run for re-election each year. He was elected three consecutive years in a row.

Outside of the professional realm, García is a musician, sort of. Since he was child, García has enjoyed playing the guitar but he admits, “I love it, but I’m not very good at it.” In his spare time, he also plays soccer to stay healthy. As an avid public speaker, García sharpens his public speaking skills by watching Ted Talks.

With the change in the economy, García left the Building Trades Council for a brief period to hold a position as the Chief of Staff for a San Jose council member. Though García has been recognized as a Top 10 Most Influential Latinos in Silicon Valley, he said some of his proudest moments professionally come from simply being able to help others.

“I don’t have a college degree or anything but when there is an opportunity I buy a book so I can read it,  so I can learn,” said García of his professional experience. García currently manages 26 construction unions, overseeing about 30 thousand workers. “I don’t have a college degree but that doesn’t mean I’m uneducated, I have taken it upon myself to educate myself in whatever areas I have to.”

Reverendo Jeff Moore, presidente del capitulo de San José de la Asociación Nacional para el Avance de la Gente de Color (NAACP).

Arturo Hilario El Observador Una serie de protestas por los derechos civiles en el área de la bahía han tomado lugar desde el tiroteo relacionado a Michael Brown en Ferguson, Missouri, el 09 de agosto. Un altercado entre un desarmado de 18 años, Brown y un oficial de policía, revelado más tarde a ser un oficial con el nombre de Darren Wilson, llevó a los disparos en el que Brown fue disparado con arma de fuego 6 veces y fue declarado muerto en la escena poco después de las 12 de la tarde ese sábado. A pesar de las controversias por motivos de ambos, así como los acontecimientos exactos que día, ha habido un gran movimiento social después del tiroteo. Los derechos civiles y relaciones de raza han sido el punto de bala clave en estas protestas que se vienen sucediendo desde Washington DC a Oakland. El tiroteo ha provocado una nueva ronda de conversaciones sobre la importancia de la raza dentro de tiroteos, además, por qué la policía de este país tienen acceso a un arsenal de armas de grado militar dentro de nuestro país. Después de las protestas iniciales, incluso disturbios en

algunos casos, la Guardia Nacional fue llamada a Ferguson y los toques de queda se encontraban en el lugar durante unos días. Desde entonces, casi 3 semanas después del tiroteo, la gente sigue recuperándose de la tragedia y todavía cuestionan el gobierno, la comunidad y esos que son elegidos para protegernos. El miércoles pasado el trajo un reunión y conferencia de prensa a la Santa Iglesia de la Trinidad en el este de San José, dirigido por la organización PACT (People Acting in Community Together, o “Personas Actuando en Comunidad Juntos”). Fue en esta reunión que los organizadores, miembros de la comunidad y otros oradores hablaron de sus reacciones y experiencias. Este soporte para la solidaridad hacia Ferguson, Missouri y Michael Brown reconoció no sólo el adolescente como un ser humano con una vida efímera, sino como una comunidad dividida y angustiada por los acontecimientos después de la muerte del joven Brown. Reverendo Nancy Palmer Jones de la Primera Iglesia Unitaria de San José dijo: “Yo siento que tengo un papel que desempeñar, como

una mujer blanca; mis oficio es para escuchar, tener el corazón roto abierto porque cuando yo respondo con un proceso abierto, y el corazón de mis acciones son más abarcadora, más humilde, más inclusiva, más poderoso que si permanezco aparte.” Los manifestantes y simpatizantes de todo el país están buscando una audiencia acelerada para acusar oficial Darren Wilson en sus acciones. Buscan un arresto del oficial, así como una fiscalía especial para el caso, así como una investigación exhaustiva sobre el perfil racial reportados por la NAACP (asociación nacional para el adelanto de la gente de color) en el área de St. Louis en el último año. Por desgracia, a pesar de la final de esta historia, Michael Brown no ha sido la única o la última persona de color involucrado en un tiroteo oficial relacionada. El Rabino Lis Levenberg tomó el tiempo para decir acerca de la situación actual, “no son sólo los niños de color que van a la universidad que tienen derechos; no sólo los niños con antecedentes limpios que no debe ser abatido a tiros en la calle. Dios exige que usemos nuestras voces por la justicia”.

Roddy Scheer & Doug Moss EarthTalk Added nutrients in the processed foods we eat could indeed be too much of a good thing, especially for kids. According to a report from non-profit health research and advocacy group Environmental Working Group (EWG), nearly half of American kids aged eight and under “consume potentially harmful amounts of vitamin A, zinc and niacin because of excessive food fortification, outdated nutritional labeling rules and misleading marketing tactics used by food manufacturers.” EWG’s analysis for the “How Much Is Too Much?” report focused on two frequently fortified food categories: breakfast cereals and snack bars.

Of the 1,550 common cereals studied by EWG, 114 (including Total Raisin Bran, Wheaties Fuel, Cocoa Krispies, Krave and others) were fortified with 30 percent or more of the adult Daily Value for vitamin A, zinc and/or niacin. And 27 of 1,000 brands of snack bars studied (including Balance, Kind and Marathon bars) were fortified with 50 percent or more of the adult Daily Value for at least one of these nutrients. EWG researchers based their anal-

AUGUST 29 - SEPTEMBER 4, 2014

ysis on Nutrition Facts labels on the various food items’ packaging. “Heavily fortified foods may sound like a good thing, but it when it comes to children and pregnant women, excessive exposure to high nutrient levels could actually cause short or long-term health problems,” says EWG research director Renee Sharp, who co-authored the report.   “Manufacturers use vitamin and mineral fortification to sell their products, adding amounts in excess of what people need and more than might be prudent for young children to consume.” Sharp adds that excessive levels of vitamin A can lead to skeletal abnormalities, liver damage and hair loss, while high doses of zinc can impede copper absorption, compromise red and white blood cells and impair immune function. Also, too much vitamin A during pregnancy can lead to fetal developmental issues. And older adults who get too much vitamin A are at more risk for osteoporosis and hip fractures. EWG suggests it’s time to overhaul our food labeling system to better account for how ingredients may affect children as well as adults. “In

other words, when a parent picks up a box of cereal and sees that one serving provides 50 percent of the Daily Value for vitamin A, he or she may think that it provides 50 percent of a child’s recommended intake,” says EWG researcher and report co-author Olga Naidenko. “But he or she would most likely be wrong, since the Daily Values are based on an adult’s dietary needs.” EWG is working on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to update its guidelines for Nutrition Facts to better reflect how foods affect children as well as adults. In the meantime, parents might want to consider scaling back on fortified foods for their kids in favor of so-called whole foods (unprocessed, unrefined fruits, vegetables and whole grains) that deliver the right amounts of nutrients naturally. “Research consistently shows that the nutrient amounts and types found in whole foods provide optimal nutrition as well as least risk,” says Ashley Koff, a registered dietitian and a former ad executive for kid’s cereals and snack bars. “We owe it to parents and kids to make it easiest to choose better quality foods.”

(Notimex) La Original Banda El Limón fue reconocida por 50 años de trayectoria artística en la Convención anual de Monitor Latino.“Estamos orgullos, contentos y emocionados por haber llegado a medio siglo”, señalaron los integrantes de la agrupación sinaloense. “Somos la tercera generación de la Original y seguimos en este barco que ya lleva 50 años navegando y esperamos que haya 50 más”, declaró Juan Barbosa Lizárraga. Señaló que su más grande orgullo “es que de esta banda han salido los mejores solistas surgidos de este tipo de agrupaciones”.En el tributo a la banda, que se llevó a cabo en un hotel de City of Indus-

try, tocaron algunos de sus temas acompañada por ex integrantes. Entre estos aparecieron José Ángel Ledezma “El coyote”, “El Mimoso” y Chuy Lizárraga, y aunque se había anunciado, el que no llegó fue Julio Preciado.Entre otros invitados, estuvieron Yuri y Río Roma, que cantó con la

banda su éxito “Fin de semana”. La Original compartió que la fecha de su 50 aniversario es el 15 de enero y que para ello planean un evento masivo ya sea en el Zócalo o en el Auditorio Nacional de la Ciudad de México, lo que está por definirse.

Cinthia Rodriguez El Observador This last weekend, I was able to check out First City Festival for the first time. This was the second annual two-day festival that takes place at the Monterey County Fair and Event Center. I had no idea what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. As soon as you walk in you have the option of checking out the carnival side of the festival. Rides were included as well as the typical carnival food. Or you can head out to the stages, three in all. Unlike SF’s Outside Lands, there’s not a ton of walking to get from stage to stage. Staying true to the music festival experience there were

great acts all throughout the day. Bands I hadn’t heard of but was left in awe after one song. It was really cool to notice a very female dominant trend. Half of the bands that performed on the first day were lead by women or had female musicians. It was amazing to hear so many female singers including Survival Guide, Speedy Ortiz, CocoRosie, Doe Eye, Mr Little jeans, and Phantogram. Other bands that had female musicians were Blind Spot, Lonely Wild, and Best Coast.

and they went on to the next song. He later sang off stage and joined the fans. Tom Krell from How to Dress Well made countless jokes of Beck, the headliner of the day. He autographed albums and shook hands with some of his fans.

The males also impressed the crowds with randomness, jokes, and legit talent. One of the most unexpected things I witnessed was during Miniature Tigers’ set. The lead singer and his male band mate kissed on stage. The crowd just cheered them on

The most memorable act was Mr Little Jeans. She literally gave me goose bumps. There was something about her voice. I couldn’t take my eyes off her. She was so innocent with indescribable energy. I also loved CocoRosie and Phantogram.

The festival was slightly reminiscent of LA’s FYF Fest. There was no overload of food trucks. Instead, there were vendors selling their jewelry, local clothing lines, and even a vinyl dealer.

El cantante Lupillo Rivera mostró aquí su total desinterés de apoyar la carrera de su sobrina “Chiquis” Rivera, que recién lanzó su primer álbum como cantante de regional mexicano. “Es otra artista más y no es nadie especial para mí como artista, es sólo otra persona que anda queriendo luchar y le deseamos lo mejor del mundo, para mí es una artista común y corriente”, respondió. Así declaró el cantante en la alfombra morada del evento de Monitor Latino que concluyó este martes en Los Ángeles y en donde se reconoció a programadores, compositores y artistas de regional mexicano. De esta forma, el llamado “Toro del Corrido” siguió manteniendo distancia con su familia y en especial con

la joven cantante, hija de la fallecida Jenni Rivera. Al mismo tiempo, Lupillo anunció que ha dado un giro a su carrera al conducir un programa de radio en estaciones de Estados Unidos “De farra con Lupillo”.

El intérprete que fue opacado por la mejor época de su hermana y que no ha podido recuperar sus niveles de popularidad de hace unos años, ahora ha decidido incursionar en la radio.

Presented by Broadway San Jose, a Nederlander Presentation, WICKED opened at the San Jose Center for Performing Arts on August 27th and closes on Sunday September 14th.  For a complete schedule of performance dates and times, go to www. broadwaysanjose.com.   “We are thrilled to finally be hosting WICKED San Jose,” said Broadway San Jose general manager Nanci

Williams. “The Center for Performing Arts is the perfect venue for big shows, and WICKED is Broadway’s Biggest Blockbuster.” WICKED is directed by two-time Tony® Award winner Joe Mantello (Take Me Out, Love! Valour! Compassion!, The Vagina Monologues) and features musical staging by Tony® Award winner Wayne Cilento (Aida, The Who’s Tommy, How To

Succeed…).  WICKED, winner of over 50 major awards, including a Grammy® Award and 3 Tony® Awards, is the untold story of the witches of Oz.  It is produced by Marc Platt, Universal Pictures, The Araca Group, Jon B. Platt and David Stone. Long before Dorothy drops in, two other girls meet in the land of Oz.  One - born with emerald green skin - is smart, fiery and misunder-

San Jose CALIFORNIA Diversity has come to comic books. As women and minority consumption of comic books and graphic novels has risen, so has the push to diversify its representation of superheroes: an AfricanAmerican Captain America, a female Thor, and a Puerto Rican Spider-Man named Miles Morales, to name a few re-workings of the superhero stories we know so well. The Latino artists in this exhibition explore cultural and social issues of identity and otherness through the visual language of comic books, science fiction and superheroes and expand on the mythology of the superhero. Carlos Donjuan brings us the surreal with his playful and unusual paintings of masked figures, hybrid animal people, pyramid, and blob creatures which play with the absurdity of the term “alien” when referencing the undocumented. The figures in his paintings are often young Latino youth, some undocumented, with their faces concealed behind shapes and patterns of color. These layered portraits illustrate the journey these superheroes have embarked on in the search of a bet-

stood.  The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular.  WICKED tells the story of their remarkable odyssey, how these two unlikely friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good.

ter life. Hector Hernandez’ gorgeously minimal and provocative Hyperbeast series reduces the idea of superheroes into a language of form, color, and geometry to transcend notions of identity, race, and gender. Dulce Pinzón’s awardwinning photography series, The Real Story of the Superheroes, features real-life Latino immigrants working the toughest jobs in New York City. Pinzón has captured New York’s Latino immigrant working class in their daily work environment but dressed as well-known American and Mexican superheroes; in doing so, this series asks us to re-examine our definition of hero and shows us that immigrants are the real superheroes. Finally, Bay Area-based artist Rio Yañez wittily teams up famous American superheroes with

heroes of Chicanismo. In Yañez’s re-envisioning of the superduo he seamlessly pairs the likes of Batman with Chicano performance artist Guillermo Gomez-Peña in a print series that envisions creative collaborations that fight injustice and comment on social issues.

(STATEPOInT) Looking to add curb appeal to your home and improve your outdoor living spaces? A complete overhaul of your home’s exterior or an addition can be costly and timeconsuming. However simpler answers can achieve the desired affect: Beautify : There are few ways to add curb appeal to a home more quickly and effectively than by simply adding awnings to its exterior. Awning fabrics come in hundreds of fade-resistant solid and stripe patterns that can complement any siding, brick, or stucco exterior -- making them a versatile option for both functionality and beauty. By selecting neutral colors and awning frames with simple clean lines, an awning can add a contemporary look. For more traditional homes, consider a complementary color or pattern to add life and visual interest to your exterior. Add Shade: Shade can help you substantially save on cooling costs. Trees and shrubbery can both beautify

Fabric awnings or exterior shades can save homeowners as much as $200 annually by reducing the load on air conditioners, according to a study by the Professional Awning Manufacturers Association (PAMA).

Updating your deck, patio or yard is a much more affordable option than a home addition.

El atacante mexicano Raúl Jiménez destacó que se siente enamorado del Atlético de Madrid, club con el que fue presentado este miércoles de manera oficial. Durante la rueda de prensa, el atacante nacional aseguró que quedó atrás su pasión por el Real Madrid y ahora se centrará en su paso por el conjunto rojiblanco. “Vengo hacer mi historia y que mejor manera que en el Atlético. Es un reto muy importante en mi carrera, vengo a darlo todo, lo mejor de mí”. El exjugador del América, manifestó que sus compañeros lo han recibido de la mejor manera, lo que ha facilitado su adaptación a la escuadra de Diego Simeone. Respecto a su debut en la Liga española donde los “colchoneros” cosecharon un empate sin goles ante el Rayo Vallecano, dijo que “hicimos una gran primera mitad, pero estamos para mejorar y seguir haciendo las cosas de la mejor manera y revalidar el título”.

Al ser comparado con el brasileño Diego Costa que dejó el club esta campaña, Jiménez apuntó que “es un aliciente... fue muy importante para el equipo, me gustaría seguir sus pasos y crecer como futbolista”. Jiménez in-

dicó que el Atlético y el conjunto mexicano América son equipos similares por estar en la parte alta de la clasificación y tener un juego intenso por lo que no será difícil adaptarse.
