New City Manager Looks Forward to Working in Oxnard

Greg Nyhoff, who recently left Modesto to become Oxnard’s new city manager, looks forward to living and working in Oxnard. In particular, he appreciates the city for its vibrant cultural diversity.

Most of all, he loves the city’s cultural diversity. dents are with their city amount of passion.”

It’s something he’s come to appreciate during his career as a city manager. Having grown up and lived in mostly Caucasian communities in Denver and Michigan, he learned to more fully appreciate racial and cultural differences when he became city manager in Fountain, Colorado (near Ft. Carson) nearly thirty years ago. “I was brought into a community that was very diverse,” he recalled, “and because they depended on each other for their lives, their color didn’t matter to them. Ever since then, I’ve tried to make it a goal to make sure my staff is very diverse.” That diversity is one of the reasons he looks forward to being Oxnard’s city manager. “One of the most beautiful things about this city is that it’s not 7080 percent Caucasian,” he said. “I couldn’t think of a better way to take what I’ve learned about multiculturalism and be the city’s manager.” Not that his hiring didn’t stir up some controversy.

Cop In Ferguson To Protestors:

'I Will F**king Kill You'

On Tuesday, August 19, 2014, shortly before midnight, an incident occurred wherein a St. Ann Police Officer pointed a semi-automatic assault rifle at a peaceful protestor after a verbal exchange. It was at this time, a St. Louis County Police Sergeant walked over and immediately took action, forcing the officer to lower the weapon, and escorting him away from the area.

By Sebastian Murdock UPDATE: The St. Ann Police Department has released a statement saying the officer involved in threatening protestors has been “suspended indefinitely.”

Previously: Video taken Tuesday night during protests in Ferguson, Missouri, show an officer pointing his weapon at civilians, shouting: “I will fucking kill you.”

Two separate videos uploaded to YouTube on Wednesday show the officer pointing a rifle at protestors. “Gun raised, gun raised and pointed,” a protestor shouts out, alerting others

as the officer approaches closer. “My hands are up,” another protestor says. “I will fucking kill you, get back!” the officer shouts. Another protestor asks for the officer to identify himself. “What’s your name, sir?” he asks. “Go fuck yourself,” the officer replies. In another video, protestors can be heard shouting at the officer to lower his weapon. At least one other cop can be seen trying to deescalate the situation by placing his hand on the weapon to lower it. The officer, who has not yet been identified, can be seen wearing a St. Ann Police Department badge. Phone calls to the department were not immediately returned. On Twitter, the ACLU of Missouri claimed that the officer has been removed from duty.

Around the Tri-Counties Whoever gets your ear gets your heart! Words to Live by

Dr. Lonnie G. McCowan, pastor of Miracle Center of Ventura

By Pastor Lonnie G. McCowan The voices you hear are the key to your success or defeat you cannot hear. The wrong voices and make the right choices. Whoever gets your ear gets your heart; whoever gets your heart gets your life! 2 Corinthians 11:14 warns us that Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. “Oh, this feels so right. “Is what we say if we are under deception the devil’s way of thinking, the counterfeit will look good?” The worst thing about deception is you don’t know you are being deceived. You think you are right. That’s why it is each of our responsibility to go to the Bible. 1Thesalonians 5:21 warns “us to test all things, and hold firmly to that which is good.” The world accepts the devil’s counterfeit, but, like a mirage, it disappears. Try to grasp it and it is gone. Satan does not come in a red suit and

pitchfork, knocking on your door saying, “I’m the devil. I’d like to come in and destroy your life.” If he did, who would let him in? John 8:44 tells us he is the father of lies. The devil is all tricks and no treat. Hebrews 11:25 tells us sin is pleasurable for a season. The trap of sin is like a mousetrap. That cheese smells tasty, the color is so inviting until... WHAP! The temptation looks great, it brings immediate pleasure. But Satan twists the truth and hides the consequences. He shows the beginning but not the end. When was the last time you saw a beer commercial showing somebody throwing up in the gutter? The drug pusher highlights the pleasure and peer acceptance but skips over addiction and prison time. 1 Peter 5:8 warns us to be sober and be vigilant. The devil is like a roaring lion. He can’t devour just anyone, but if you allow deception, you give him authority in your life. If you have ever gone fishing, you know the bait must hide the hook. Our first line of defense is God’s Word. John 10:10 gives us Satan’s job description: kill, steal and destroy. You don’t have a friend in the devil. He wants to get you off God’s path. Philippians

3:13-14 encourages us to keep our eyes on the prize. Jesus’ job description is to bring abundant life here and now. He will influence our relationships, our finances, and every area of life. Deuteronomy 30:19 encourages us to choose life. You and I have a choice. If I don’t like my life, I need to make different choices. Abundant life is always in my connection to Father God. We all know the story of the prodigal son in Luke 15:11-32. The son lost abundant life when he broke connection with his father. How do we unlock the door to abundant life? By hearing the right voices, there are three ways to do this. 1. Live under God’s authority. Pride wants to be in control. John 15:4-5 tells us that life comes by being connected to the vine. Apart from God you and I can do nothing. (vs. 5) please don’t fool yourself and think you, because without Him we can’t even breathe! 2. Live within boundaries. The world’s freedom leads to addictions and bondage. 1 Corinthians 6:12 in the message puts it this way: “Just because something is technically legal doesn’t mean that it’s spiritually appropriate not every choice will benefit for your life.

Photography & Life The Mind Matters By Patricia Lynn Belkowitz, C.Ht., EFT-CC Many years ago, I met a man who was to become a mentor to me, not only as an artist and a photographer, but as a human being. His motto, which hangs above the blackboard in his classroom states simply, “Comfort is your Enemy”. Being “comfortable” is the same as being stagnant. We miss opportunities. If we don’t move out of our comfort zone, there is no forward motion. No creative flow. Life is a lot like photography. In order to capture the moment and to get the results we want… Sometimes we need to change our point of view – to look at things from different perspectives. Sometimes we need to focus in really close on the details…and Sometimes we need to step back to see the big picture – the whole picture – in order to get a more balanced perception. Sometimes we need to step up to a challenge and take a risk...and Sometimes we need to step out of the way. Sometimes we need to put our focus on the important things and let the insignificant things blur out in the

background…or fade away. Sometimes we need to become aware of something we’ve missed… and Sometimes we need to know when to ask for help. But ALWAYS we need to take ACTION or the opportunity is lost! And the actions we take create a lasting impression on this experience …this series of moments we call “life”. We take actions every moment of the day; most of them subconsciously motivated. Are you aware that your behaviors are directed and controlled by your subconscious mind and your past programming? Your conscious awareness is only effective for about 90 minutes. After that your behavior is dictated by the “knowns” of your subconscious mind… the 88% of your mind that makes the decisions about your actions, as well as your re-actions. When we change our focus or move in a different direction (even just a little bit!!!) we change our experience. We change our habits…our relationships…our health… our prosperity…our life. What actions are you taking to create your life… your image of success and happiness? What opportunities, or lack of opportunities, are

you creating by the actions you are taking? Take a moment to consider all aspects of your life…your health and level of physical fitness; your mental acuity and ability to focus and concentrate; your financial stability; your sense of emotional wellbeing; your level of joy and happiness in your relationship with self and others; and your spiritual life. Ask yourself this question …Right now, what is the one thing I could…start doing…stop doing…or do differently…that would most improve the quality of my life? When you have identified that one action that would create a better life…tell yourself that you can do it. And then just do it! Capture the moment!

The People’s Throb As the school season starts, do you feel the school system is properly educating our children?

By Gary L. Harbour

Scott Aiken, 40 Buellton CA

Marva Gaston, 60 Oxnard CA

Breaun Bell, 20 Fort Worth TX

Caila Barden, 18 Moorpark CA

Jared Raschke, 20 Ventura CA

Randy Covington, 65 Port Hueneme CA

“In general, yes. Buellton USD seems to be doing a great job educating our kids. However, I have serious concerns about “Common Core”, both the curriculum, and the unlegislated federalization of the public school system. My senators and representatives never voted on “Common Core”, and I have no meaningful input on the curriculum. The whole thing seems like an experiment, and my kids are the guinea pigs. The curriculum was created by bureaucrats, not experienced educators. We will be watching closely, with home schooling, or coops as the back-up plan.”

“Absolutely not. Our children aren’t being educated for the future, all classrooms should have computers, and more funding for the arts.”

“Some schools are concerned more with the dress code, than making sure students know and understand what is being taught.”

“I think the schools are doing an okay job, but too much technology is involved. They need to spend more of our money on actually speaking with, and educating us, without all the focus being on computers and such.”

“I believe that the school system does a good job on the “Book” teaching. I believe it fails miserably on the social growth though. Kids do not know anything outside of technology, and can’t act “normal” socially, without a phone.”

“No I don’t think we’re doing as good as we should be. But the real question is why, what’s the solution? I don’t think it’s the teachers. Part of it is the funding. It’s societal, the funding is inadequate. Charter schools are not the answer. It’s just a trick to privatize education.”

Ebola: A Threat to Humanity By Herb Boyd Special to the NNPA from the New York Amsterdam News The daily death count from Ebola only seems to gain media attention in the West when an American or European is the fatality. Tuesday, a Spanish missionary who contracted the disease while working in West Africa died in a hospital in Madrid. With that lead out of the way, as when two Americans were returned from West Africa last week to be treated in isolation at the Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, mention could be made of the fact that more than 1,000 people have died in Liberia, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Nigeria since the first reports of this more recent outbreak in February. It was good news the other day when Dr. Kent Brantly, who contracted the deadly virus while working with Samaritan’s Purse and treating patients in Monrovia, Liberia, said he was regaining his strength. “I am growing stronger every day, and I thank God for His mercy as I have wrestled with this disease,” was the message posted on the organization’s website. There were no reports of Nancy Writebol’s condition.

Javier Alcantar Limon found dead near Beach

GUADALUPE, CA --On Tuesday morning, Santa Maria resident Javier Alcantar Limon, 37, was found dead by Eduardo Gutierrez and his co-workers. Gutierrez said, they were on their way to work and saw Limon’s body lying off the side of the road in a ditch. “I could not see his face...he was face down,” said Gutierrez. After arriving on the scene, Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s deputies and Guadalupe Police officers blocked off the road leading to the beach for several hours. The body was removed by the coroner’s office a little after noon.

Public information officer, Kelly Hoover, for the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department said they are trying to figure out how he got there and that they don’t have any

suspects. Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information to call the sherrif’s anonymous tip-line at 805-6814171.

Americans in Debt

Shocking report declares 77 million U.S. citizens in debt

She is the nurse who worked with Brantly, and she was flown to Atlanta to receive the same treatment that has improved the outlook for the doctor. Both were given doses of ZMapp, an experimental drug for which the long-term effects are still unknown.

Dosages of the drug were the source of some controversy when the limited supply was designated for Americans and not for West Africa, which is the epicenter of the disease that has no cure. EBOLA, See page 12A

By Ashley Montgomery It is no secret that Americans have some serious issues when it comes to debt. A recent report released by the Urban Institute titled, “Delinquent Debt in America,” examined nonmortgage debt with help from the Consumer Credit Research Institute. What is that you may ask? “It is any debt in collections that involves a non-mortgage bill — such as a credit card balance, medical or utility bill, child support payments and even parking tickets — that are more than 180 days past

due and have been placed in collections,” according to the report. And it doesn’t stop there, 35 percent of adults with a credit file are reported to be behind in some sort and it is hurting the nation as a whole. Geographically, there’s no location in the nation that is unscathed. Both debt in collections and debt past due are concentrated in the South. The South was reported to have the highest percentage of people in debt. Of all, Nevada had the

highest percentage of residents with debt in collection with 47 percent. The “Battle Born” state also has accrued the highest average amount owed — $7,198. In Florida, debt collection rates exceeded 41 percent. According to the institute’s report, the average Floridian in debt owes $47,000. BLACKS IN DEBT As it relates to Blacks, many financial progressions have been made but there still seems to be some challenges that must be overcome. DEBT, See page 12A

Sports News Kevin Durant is the Latest to Andrew Wiggins Said 'I Hope I Get Traded' Withdraw from USA National Team

Bill Self:

By Dave Skretta OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Andrew Wiggins told Kansas coach Bill Self that he wants to be traded from Cleveland to Minnesota because the No. 1 overall pick believes it will be better for his long-term future. Wiggins joined his former coach as a guest instructor at Self's basketball camp in suburban Kansas City. And while Wiggins declined to speak to the few reporters at Shawnee Mission West High School, Self said the rookie wants to carve out his own legacy in the NBA. "When all this trade stuff started, I talked to Andrew and Andrew told me, "I hope I get traded," Self said. "And I'm like, 'No you don't.' And he said, "Coach, I do. It's better for me, knowing my personality and what I need to do, to go somewhere where I'm forced to be something as opposed to going in there where they're going to be patient with me and I'm going to be a piece." Earlier this week, The Associated Press and several other outlets reported a deal has been reached to send Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and a first-round pick to Minnesota for AllStar forward Kevin Love,

Mo’Ne Davis Little League World Series. To get there, Davis allowed just three hits in six innings, hurling 70 mph fastballs and curveballs you have to see to believe. Only 16 girls have played in the Little League World Series in the past 67 years, league spokesman Brian McClintock told the Associated Press. Davis said there wasn't much of a difference between playing boys and girls: "We're playing the same game," she told the AP. Earlier this month, Philadelphia Magazine called Davis "the heart and soul of the team" complete with "long, flowing braids that cover the surname and numbers on the back of her uniform." "She has incredible leadership, and you can't shake her; she's unflappable," Davis' coach, Alex Rice, told ESPN. "Hit a home run off her and she'll just give a little smile and get back to work. She doesn't get rattled." The Little League World Series starts with a game in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

By Brian Mahoney Kevin Durant withdrew from the U.S. national team, the biggest loss yet for a weakening American squad that will go to Spain without the leading scorer on its last two gold medal winners. The NBA's MVP took part in the Americans' training camp in Las Vegas, but then informed team officials that he wasn't going to continue. "Kevin reached out to Coach K and myself and expressed that he is just physically and mentally drained from the NBA season and his attention to his many responsibilities,' USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo said in a statement. "He tried to give it a go at our recent Las Vegas training camp but felt coming out of camp that he was not prepared to fulfill the commitment he made to the team."

Kevin Durant Durant was the MVP of the world championship in 2010, leading the Americans to that title for the first time since 1994. The Oklahoma City star also started on their gold medal-winning team in the 2012 Olympics and led the Americans with 19.5 points per game. His withdrawal comes less than a week after In-

diana's Paul George was lost to a broken right leg and follows previous withdrawals by All-Stars Kevin Love, Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge, and NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard. "This was an extremely difficult decision as I take great pride in representing our country," Durant said. "I know that I owe it to my USA Basketball teammates to be totally invested in the experience. After going through training camp with USAB, I realized I could not fulfill my responsibilities to the team from both a time and energy standpoint.” The U.S. roster is down to 15 players. The Americans resume practicing in Chicago and have to finalize a 12-man roster before the World Cup of Basketball begins in Spain on Aug. 30.

Federal Judge Rules Against NCAA in Antitrust Case

By Tim Dahlberg A federal judge ruled that the NCAA can't stop college football and basketball players from selling the rights to their names and likenesses, opening the way to athletes getting payouts once their college careers are over. In a landmark decision, U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken ruled in favor of former UCLA basketball star Ed O'Bannon and 19 others in a lawsuit that challenged the NCAA's regulation of college athletics on antitrust grounds. She issued an injunction prohibiting the NCAA from enforcing its rules on money given to athletes when it comes to their names, images and likenesses. In a partial victory for the NCAA, though, Wilken said the body that governs college athletics could set a cap on the money paid to athletes, as long as it allows at least $5,000 per athlete per year of competition for players at big football and basketball schools. "The NCAA's witness-

Ed O'Bannon es stated that their concerns about student-athlete compensation would be minimized or negated if compensation was capped at a few thousand dollars per year," Wilken wrote. The NCAA said in a statement it disagreed with the decision, but was still reviewing it. But Sonny Vaccaro, the former athletic shoe representative who recruited O'Bannon to launch the suit, said it was a huge win for college athletes yet to come. "The kids who are going to benefit from this are

kids who don't even know what we did today," Vaccaro said. "It may only be $5,000 but it's $5,000 more than they get now. The future generation will be the benefactor of all this. There are now new ground rules in college sports." The ruling comes after a five-year battle by O'Bannon and others on behalf of college athletes to receive a share of the billions of dollars generated by college athletics by huge television contracts. O'Bannon, who was MVP of the 1995 UCLA national championship basketball team, said he signed on as lead plaintiff after seeing his image in a video game authorized by the NCAA that he was not paid for. Any payments to athletes would not be immediate. The ruling said regulations on pay will not take effect until the start of the next FBS football and Division I basketball recruiting cycle. Wilken said they will not affect any prospective recruits before July 1, 2016. The NCAA could also appeal.

Orlando Scandrick son, became a starter last year when former top 10 pick Morris Claiborne struggled. Now Claiborne is battling tendinitis in his right knee and missed the preseason opener for the third time in his three seasons in Dallas. Brandon Carr, the other

starter, missed the first two weeks of camp to be with his mother in the final days of her battle against breast cancer. He might only play one preseason game but is expected to be ready for the regular season. The Cowboys had to sign two defensive backs just to get through the preseason opener against the Chargers last week. They're likely to keep scouring the waiver wire, perhaps even looking for a veteran to give them depth while Scandrick is out. B.W. Webb, a fourthround pick last year, hasn't shown that he's ready to be a starter. Terrance Mitchell, a rookie seventh-round pick out of Oregon, could get a longer look while Scandrick is sidelined.

Cowboys Cornerback Orlando Scandrick Suspended for Four Games

OXNARD, Calif. — Dallas Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick is getting a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Team owner Jerry Jones told reporters at a media party in Malibu, California, that Scandrick tested positive for performanceenhancing drugs and lost an appeal on the ban. Scandrick will be eligible to return Oct. 5 against Houston. He will miss the opener against San Francisco, and his final game on the sidelines will be against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints, who set an NFL record with 40 first downs against Dallas last year.

To parents with a freshman entering college this fall: You're probably expecting to shell out major bucks for tuition, room and board and a million other necessities over the next few years. But before you send your kid off, make sure you share one gift likely to steer him or her along the road to financial security – a sound understanding of how credit works. You probably learned the hard way yourself that young adults encounter many unfamiliar expenses – and temptations – upon entering college or the workforce. So it's important to help your kids avoid early financial missteps that could damage their credit for years to come. The first step in managing personal finances is mastering the basic checking account and debit card. A few tips you can pass along: • Look for a bank or

credit union that charges no monthly usage fee, requires no minimum balance and has conveniently located ATMs so you don't rack up foreign ATM charges. • Enter all transactions in a check register or in a budgeting tool like Mint.com and review your account online at least weekly to verify when deposits, checks, purchases and automatic payments have cleared. • Avoid writing checks or making debit card transactions unless your current balance will cover them – such transactions often clear instantly. A good way to build sound credit is to demonstrate responsible credit card use. But people under age 21 must have a parent or other responsible adult cosign credit card accounts unless they can prove sufficient income to repay the debt. So how can parents help their

While everyone plays a role in this struggle and in its solution, no one group is more important than parents. Only when families and schools are committed to partnering can all children truly succeed. Tovi Scruggs says the answer is not simply parenting, but “educational parenting,” a term she has originated to get parents and school systems to look at serving students better for academic success. First Lady Michelle Obama & Essence Magazine Editor-in-Chief Vanessa K. Bush have put out the call in the August 2014 issue for us to be a champion for our children. Parent Champion Coach Tovi Scruggs has just released a

school in the Bay Area, wrote Be a Parent Champion: A Guide to Becoming a Partner with Your Child’s School and conducts corresponding interviews, workshops, and book talks that are designed to motivate and educate parents to be their very best as school partners. Parents are inspired to analyze, reflect, and take action in regard to how they co-educate their children by partnering with their child’s school. Parent Champion is the must-have book for this school year! Principal Tovi Scruggs holds two undergraduate degrees from the University of California, Berkeley as well teaching and administrative credentials and a Master’s Degree from Mills College. Scruggs is also a public school product of Inglewood High School in Southern California.

State News Congresswoman Lee Hosts CA NAACP will urge the Governor Economic Development Forum to sign SB 1010

Oakland, CA – Congresswoman Lee hosted a Regional Economy Development Forum featuring U.S. Secretary of Commerce, Penny Pritzker. The forum focused on generating greater regional economic development including job creation, business growth and available resources for expanding economic opportunities for the East Bay business community. The forum has a special emphasis on local small, women and minority-owned businesses. “Small businesses are fundamental to the East Bay’s economic growth, especially women and minority-owned businesses. These businesses create

Assemblyman Jeff Gorell Statement on Bipartisan State Water Bond Compromise

Sacramento, CA – The California State Legislature agreed to a compromise state water bond measure to appear on the November ballot. The $7.5 billion package will replace the $11.1 billion bond proposal that was previously agreed to. Assemblyman Jeff Gorell (R-Camarillo), who serves as Vice-Chair of the Assembly Budget Committee and is a co-author of the new state water bond bill, SB 866, released the following statement commenting on the legislation: “Providing reliable access to water during an extended drought is one of the most important issues Sacramento legislators will face this decade. The severity of our current water cri-

Assemblyman Jeff Gorell sis has given us greater incentive to repair our state’s aging water infrastructure, but it has not been a speedy or easy process to reach today’s ultimate compromise. It’s often said that the mark of a good compromise

agreement is the fact that nobody is entirely happy with the end result. Nevertheless, this bipartisan agreement that I am proud to have co-authored will offer California’s voters a smaller and more focused water bond that better fits the state’s priorities. The previous water bond measure was seen as too expensive and was criticized for the unrelated special interest earmarks. While some of these earmarks may be desirable to many people, such as $20 million to reduce animal habitat fragmentation in the Santa Monica mountains, their inclusion in the water bond would likely jeopardize its passage in November.

SACRAMENTO, CA — Facing its final vote in the Assembly, the California Fair Sentencing Act (SB 1010) authored by Sen. Holly Mitchell (D-Los Angeles) won bi-partisan approval on a 49-14 vote. Mitchell’s bill will correct the groundless disparity in sentencing, probation and asset forfeiture guidelines for possession of crack cocaine for sale versus the same crime involving powder cocaine that has resulted in a pattern of racial discrimination in sentencing and incarceration in California. SB 1010 now moves on to the Senate for a concurrence vote. “The California NAACP members applaud the legislature for its courageous action on an unpopular issue to reduce the penalty for possession of crack cocaine for sale versus the same

Sen. Holly Mitchell crime involving powder cocaine. Twenty years of the War on Drugs and stiff punishment for crack cocaine has created a disparity that is hard to justify, and is racially biased,” said Alice A. Huffman, President of the California State Conference of the NAACP “While the NAACP does not advocate the use or sale of drugs we advocated for equal justice under the law and parity

California Legislature Approves Assemblymember Holden’s Bill

Sacramento – The California Legislature has given overwhelming, bipartisan approval to Assemblymember Chris Holden’s bill to encourage California schools to teach the story of President Barack Obama’s trailblazing election. The vote in the Assembly on concurrence in language changes was approved unanimously – 73 to 0. The Senate has already overwhelmingly approved AB 1912. The bill now goes to Governor Brown for signature. AB 1912 asks the State Board of Education and the Instructional Quality

Commission to include the significance of President Barack Obama’s election in the state’s history and social science standards for grades seven to twelve. “The election of President Barack Obama is a significant part of history

and should not just be a mere footnote within textbooks,” said Assemblymember Holden. “This bill would create an opportunity for our children to learn about the historical significance of electing our first African-American President. Children need to understand that for years intimidation and physical violence prevented millions of African Americans from voting and alienated them from the electoral process, making the 2008 election of President Obama even more noteworthy.” California has not updated its standards for nine years due largely to the state’s fiscal crisis. The State Board of Education is expected to review instructional materials during the 2015-2016 school year.

SACRAMENTO – State Controller John Chiang eleased his monthly report covering California's cash balance, receipts and disbursements in July 2014. Total revenues for the first month of Fiscal Year 2014-15 totaled $5.4 billion, beating estimates in the Budget Act by $231.9 million, or 4.5 percent. "Even though July is usually a weak revenue collection month, the new fiscal year is off to a strong start," Chiang said. "While the State plans to borrow operating funds through revenue anticipation notes, the $2.8 billion needed solely for smoothing out the timing of revenues is at the lowest level since the 2006-07 fiscal year. If we can continue to reduce shortand long-term debts, we can continue to improve our fiscal condition." Income tax collections for the month of July came in $244.9 million, or 6.4 percent, above estimates. Corporate taxes topped estimates by $38.1 million, or 13.5 percent. Sales taxes also beat estimates by $36 million, or 4.1 percent. The State ended the last fiscal year on June 30 with a positive cash balance for the first time since June

State Controller John Chiang 30, 2007. That means the State had funds available to meet all of its payment obligations without needing to borrow from Wall Street or the $23.8 billion available in its more than 700 internal special funds and accounts. As of July 31, the General Fund accumulated outstanding loans of $7.9 billion from internal sources, which was $1.5 billion under the budgeted amount. The State ended the month with unused borrowable resources of $17.8 billion after making $15.4 billion in disbursements. The most significant payments were $6.5 billion to public schools, which included deferrals from the spring in addition to the normal July scheduled payments.

National News Military Revises 'Racially Biased' NYC Police Commissioner William Bratton: 'We Are Not a Racist Organization' Hairstyle Rules

WASHINGTON -- Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced that the military will allow female service members to have a wider range of hairstyles after the services came under fire for using derogatory language and banning many styles that are popular with African-American women. The controversy started in March, when the Army released new rules regarding tattoos, hairstyles, grooming and uniforms for soldiers. One of the new regulations banned women from having twists, dreadlocks and multiple braids/ cornrows that are bigger than a quarter of an inch. Black service members quickly spoke out about the rules, arguing that they were racially insensitive and objected to language that called such styles “matted” and “unkempt.” Sgt. Jasmine Jacobs of the Georgia National Guard started a petition about the matter on the White House website, writing, “These new changes are racially biased and the lack of regard for ethnic hair is apparent.” Hagel’s review of the hairstyle rules came after the female members of the

Congressional Black Caucus wrote to the defense secretary, saying the guidelines seemed to be “discriminatory” and targeted “soldiers who are women of color with little regard to what is needed to maintain their natural hair.” “At my direction, over the last three months, each Military Service reviewed its definitions of authorized and prohibited hairstyles, and eliminated offensive language, including the terms ‘matted and unkempt’ from both the Army and the Air Force grooming regulations,” Hagel said in his letter to CBC Chairwoman Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio). “Additionally, each Service reviewed its hairstyle poli-

cies to ensure standards are fair and respectful while also meeting our military requirements.” According to the Army Times, the hairstyle rules were getting in the way of a promotion for at least one black service member. Navy Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Jessica Sims, 32, told the paper that she wears her long hair in tightly twisted locks pulled into a bun when she’s in uniform. Last year, when assigned as a teacher at the Navy’s boot camp, she was “told to cut her hair or wear a wig, and when she refused, her commanders processed her for separation for ‘serious misconduct.’”

By Tom Hays NEW YORK — The city's top law enforcement official went on a media blitz to deny that the chokehold death of a black suspect shows that police are singling out minorities in a crackdown on minor offenses and to insist that Mayor Bill de Blasio is "very pro-cop." In an interview with The Associated Press, Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said he wanted to counter "some of the misimpressions and some of the momentum that's been gained by self-serving interests" since the videotaped death last month of Eric Garner. Bratton also spoke to CNN, CBS and local television affiliates. The mayor said tensions that arose after Garner's July 17 death must be part of the city's past as it moves toward unity. "This has to be a turning point moment," de Blasio said. "We can't let any moment that leaves us so sad and pained be an end point. It has to be an opening of a door to something better."

Missouri Highway Patrol Will Take Over Mia Love Has Healthy Lead Over Supervision of Security in Ferguson Democratic Challenger By Alex Lazar Republican Mia Love has a 12-point lead over her Democratic challenger for Utah's 4th Congressional District, according to a poll released recently. The poll, conducted by Dan Jones/Cicero Group for Zions Bank and UtahPolicy.com, has Love at 44 percent to the 32 percent held by lawyer Doug Owens (D), while 19 percent of those polled were undecided. The poll surveyed 443 voters by phone between Aug. 7 and Aug. 9.

Mia Love Owens' own internal polling, released in late

July, found him trailing Love by 9 points. Love, the former mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, lost her 2012 congressional bid to Rep. Jim Matheson (D-Utah). In May 2013, she announced that she would run again during the 2014 election cycle. Matheson announced his retirement at the end of last year. If she defeats Owens in November, Love would become the first black Republican woman elected to Congress.

Barneys Pays $525,000 to Settle Allegations of Racial Profiling

By Kim Bhasin Barneys New York has agreed to pay $525,000 in fees and penalties following a nine-month investigation by the New York state attorney general into racial profiling at the luxury department store. Investigators reviewed a series of complaints from Barneys customers and former employees, who claimed that door guards would exclusively single out minority customers and that in-store detectives would follow these customers as they walked around. Some salespeople tried not to work with minority shoppers to avoid the hassle of being roped into investigations about them, the complaints alleged. Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's office found that a "disproportionate number" of black and Latino customers had been detained at Barneys on suspicion of shoplifting or credit card fraud. It con-

cluded that Barneys lacked the proper "comprehensive written policies" to curb racial profiling. "Profiling and racial discrimination remain a problem in our state, but not one we are willing to accept," Schneiderman said in a statement. "This agreement will correct a number of wrongs, both by fixing past policies and monitoring the actions of Barneys and its employee to make sure that past mistakes are not repeated." Schneiderman began probing Barneys after two black customers filed lawsuits against the company in 2013, alleging racial discrimination. College student Trayon Christian sued Barneys after he was falsely accused of stealing a $359 Ferragamo belt. Then Kayla Phillips, a nursing student, came forward with another lawsuit accusing Barneys of racially profiling her after she bought a $2,500 Cé-

line bag. Both incidents occurred at Barneys' Madison Avenue flagship store in New York City. Barneys chief executive Mark Lee said in a statement that his company is "pleased" to have reached this agreement with the attorney general's office. "We are a truly progressive company that has absolutely no tolerance for discrimination of any kind, and believe this agreement will help build on that commitment and further strengthen our organization in the years and decades to come," said Lee. As a result of the agreement, Barneys will retain an independent anti-profiling consultant, put in place new anti-profiling policies and add anti-profiling training for security and sales workers. It will also have new recordkeeping requirements for its security team regarding "investigations, detentions and false stops."

Gov. Jay Nixon FLORISSANT, Mo. — The Missouri State Highway Patrol will take over the supervision of security in the St. Louis suburb that’s been the scene of violent protests since a police officer fatally shot an unarmed black teenager, the governor announced. Gov. Jay Nixon said security will be overseen by Capt. Ron Johnson of the Highway Patrol. Johnson, who is black, said he grew up in the community and “it means a lot to me personally that we break this cycle of violence.” “Ferguson will not be defined as a community that was torn apart by violence but will be known as a community that pulled together to overcome it,” Nixon said at a news conference. Crowds have gathered in Ferguson since the shooting of Michael Brown to protest the 18-year-old’s death. Police defended the use of tear gas and smoke bombs to repel demonstrators after another night of chaos. But the police response has drawn heavy criticism. Earlier, President Barack Obama appealed for “peace and calm” on the streets. “I know emotions are raw right now in Ferguson, and there are certain-

lic order and the right to peaceful public protests.” Obama said there was no excuse for excessive force by police in the aftermath of the shooting. He said he had asked the Justice Department and FBI to investigate the incident.

Obama Gives France $10 Mil to Fight Terror in Africa

By Saeed Shabazz Special to the NNPA from the New York Amsterdam News Incensed by the news that President Barack Obama gave $10 million to France to fight terrorism in three of its former African colonies, Minister Menelik Harris, of the Atlanta-based World African Diaspora Union, sent out an email message demanding that Obama keep his “terror money.” Menelik suggested that the president of the U.S. should instead “give us our trillions of dollars in reparations to rebuild Africa as one union government to protect our enslaved, devastated and scattered people.” Aug. 11, website The Hill announced that Obama directed the $10 million in foreign aid to France to assist in “counter[ter]rorism operations on the African continent to target terror groups.” The article stated that money went to support a French counterterrorism operation code-named “Barkhan,” which would prevent the establishment of a “jihadist” foothold between Libya and the Atlantic Ocean. The Hill quoted a deputy national security adviser, Ben Rhodes, as saying the U.S. was “very focused on the threat of terrorism in Africa.” Obama issued a short statement concerning the money from his vacation spot on Martha’s Vineyard, located off the Massachusetts coast. “I hereby determine that an unforeseen emergency exists that requires immediate military assistance to France in its efforts to save Mali, Niger and Chad from terrorists and violent extremists,” said Obama. “This shows that U.S. and French imperialism is alive in Africa, and that they are the real terrorists,” Sara Flounders, co-founder of the International Action Network, told the AmNews.

Payday Lender ACE Cash Express Get Organized to Simplify Fined $10 Million

By Charlene Crowell For the second time in as many years, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has fined a major payday lender. On July 10, Director Richard Cordray announced that one of the nation’s largest payday lenders, ACE Cash Express, will pay $10 million in restitution and penalties for directing its employees to “create a sense of urgency” when contacting delinquent borrowers. This abusive tactic was used to perpetuate the payday loan debt trap. CFPB has ordered ACE Cash Express to provide consumers with $5 million in refunds and the same amount in penalties for its violations. The firm operates in 36 states and in the District of Columbia with 1,500 storefronts, 5,000 associates and online loans. “We believe that ACE’s aggressive tactics were part of a culture of coercion aimed at pressuring payday borrowers into debt traps,” said Cordray. “Our investigation uncovered a graphic in ACE’s training manual that lays out a step-by-step loan and collection process that can ensnare consumers in a cycle of debt. When borrowers could not pay back their loans, ACE would subject them to illegal debt collection threats and harassment.” Commenting on CFPB’s actions, Mike Calhoun, president of the Center for Responsible Lending, said, “This enforcement action also confirms what our

research found long ago: payday lenders depend on keeping vulnerable consumers trapped in an endless cycle of debt of 300400 percent interest loans. . . .It’s real, it’s abusive and it’s time to stop.” CRL research shows that payday loans drain $3.4 billion a year from consumers. Further, CRL has long held that the payday industry preys on customers who cannot repay their loans. Now, with CFPB releasing an item from ACE Cash Express’ training manual, that contention is proven to be true. The ACE graphic shows how the business model intends to create a debt cycle that becomes increasingly difficult to break and urges its associates to be aggressive. Across the country, the South has the highest concentration of payday loan stores and accounts for 60 percent of total payday lending fees. Missouri is the only state outside of the South with a compa-

rable concentration of payday stores. Last year, another large payday lender, the Fort Worth-based Cash America International, faced similar enforcement actions when CFPB ordered it to pay $5 million in fines for robo-signing court documents submitted in debt collection lawsuits. Cash America also paid $14 million to consumers through one of its more than 900 locations throughout the United States, Mexico and the United Kingdom. On the same day that the CFPB’s enforcement action occurred, another key payday- related development occurred. Missouri Gov. “Jay” Nixon vetoed a bill that purported to be payday reform. In part, Gov. Nixon’s veto letter states, “allowing payday lenders to charge 912.5 percent for a 14-day loan is not true reform. . . Supporters point to the prohibition of loan rollovers; but missing from the legislation is anything to address the unfortunately all-toocommon situation where someone living paycheckto-paycheck is offered multiple loans by multiple lenders at the same time or is encouraged to take out back-to-back loans from the same lender. . . .This bill cannot be called meaningful reform and does not receive my approval.” Charlene Crowell is a communications manager with the Center for Responsible Lending.

Growing Investment Opportunities in Green -- and Blue -- Technologies

If you want to take advantage of the growing environmental investment opportunities, it’s time to start thinking “blue.” that encompass not only the use of ‘green’ technology, but ‘blue’ -- or clean water -- technology,” says Alan Murphy, president of STW Resources, a Texas-based water reclamation systems integration company. Now, environmentally conscious companies, like STW Resources (OTCQB: STWS), are positioning themselves to be potentially lucrative for investors. “At STW Resources, we strive to compliment our [water] reclamation services with proven environmentally friendly tech,” says Murphy. “And, because of the way we have structured our business model, we can provide customers with the option to reclaim water without a large capital outlay.” STW designs, builds, owns and operates, and then charges the customer by the barrel or per one thousand gallons. If the water quality doesn’t meet the required specifications that the customer desires, they don’t pay for the service. INVESTMENT, See page 12A

Your Next Move

By Phoebe Chongchua When you're selling your home, getting your belongings organized can seem like a low priority. You're dealing with finding the right real estate agent, the best time to list your home on the market, and maybe even house-hunting for a new place to live. All of that can keep you quite busy considering many of us have to do those things while we work a full-time job. Organizing your home so that you can simplify your move just doesn't seem practical. However, there is one main reason why getting organized can not only simplify your next move but also help improve your chances of selling your home faster and for more money. When you go through the process of getting organized, you should be eliminating items from your home which helps to clear clutter. Clearing clutter is one of the first things agents and experts who stage homes for sale will tell you to do.

When the clutter is gone, the home can be shown much easier. Potential buyers can see what makes your house so special and different from others in the neighborhood. Here are five tips that can help you jump start your organizing and simplify your next move. 1. Sort piles of belongings into groups: keep, giveaway, maybe, and trash. The "maybe" pile, you box up and seal for six to 12 months. If you don't have a use for your items in the "maybe" box during the year then perhaps you can donate it. 2. Give yourself plenty of time. Be patient: this process of getting organized takes time. Know that when it comes to sorting through personal papers and memorabilia, it will take you much longer than reviewing other items. 3. Store your items in clear plastic bins. Using clear boxes helps to let you have a quick view of what's inside. If you use cardboard boxes or col-

Special to the NNPA from Black Voice News While historical barriers that excluded Black America from the homeowner market for decades have crumbled, there are signs that emerging types of racial inequality are making homeownership an increasingly risky investment for African-American home seekers. A new study from sociologists at Rice University and Cornell University found that African-Americans are 45 percent more likely than whites to switch from owning their homes to renting them. The study, “Emerging Forms of Racial Inequality in Homeownership Exit, 19682009,” examines racial inequality in transitions out of homeownership over the last four decades. The authors used longitudinal household data from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics for the period 1968 to 2009, with a study sample of 6,994 nonHispanic whites and 3,158 black homeowners. The research revealed that despite modest gains in attaining homeownership over time, the racial gap in the likelihood of changing from ownership to renting began to widen

in the 1990s. During the next two decades, AfricanAmerican homebuyers were consistently over 45 percent more likely than whites to transition out of homeownership. The authors claim that their findings point to a historical shift in racial stratification in American housing markets, from a system of overt market exclusion to, more recently, one of market exploitation. “The 1968 passage of the Fair Housing Act outlawed housing market discrimination based on race,” said Gregory Sharp, a postdoctoral fellow in Rice’s Department of Sociology and the study’s lead

author. “African-American homeowners who purchased their homes in the late 1960s or 1970s were no more or less likely to become renters than were white owners. However, emerging racial disparities over the next three decades resulted in black owners who bought their homes in the 2000s being 50 percent more likely to lose their homeowner status than similar white owners.” Sharp noted that these inequalities in homeownership exit held even after adjusting for an extensive set of life-cycle traits, socioeconomic characteristics, characteristics of housing RISKY, See page 12A

Manufactured homes often sell for more than $1 million in the Malibu, Calif., community of Paradise Cove, with one selling for $2.55 million earlier this year and another going on the market last month for $3.75 million. The homes feature hardwood floors, high-end appliances, granite countertops, and other upscale features, but the prices also have a lot to do with the community's location on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Conventional homes in the surrounding area sell for $20 million to $40 million, according to

Prudential Malibu Realty's Michael Gardner. The housing slump pushed down sales of manufactured homes from 130,937 shipments in 2003 to 60,201 in 2013, reports the Manufactured Housing Institute. However, wealthier buyers now are entering the market for factory-built homes, mainly as retirees look to downsize and soaring home prices in particular markets make manufactured housing a more affordable option. "A lot of the [manufactured home] communities are very close to [Google, eBay, PayPal, and Micro-

soft], so it's a cool thing because a single-family [costs] $1.5 million, and then next door you can have a brand new place for a third or a fourth of that price," says Todd Su, owner and president of Advantage Homes in San Jose. Mike Wnek, vice president of new business development at Jacobsen Homes in Safety Harbor, Fla., says design trends have tracked those in conventional sitebuilt homes, with "a lot of movement toward bigger and more exotic appliances — a lot of side-by-side refrigerators, wall ovens, big islands with cooktops."

ored bins, use a pen to clearly label what's inside and which room it will go in at your new home. 4. Get rid of the paper. A big problem in many homes is the paper trail they have from room to room. It could be magazines, newspapers, documents, advertisements, receipts... you name it. Most homeowners keep a lot of paper which creates a lot of clutter. Go through your files and reduce the paper by shredding or recycling documents you don't need. 5. Do it now! This is the most valuable tip. As soon as you finish reading this, go put a time on your calendar when you will begin to get organized. Placing it on your calendar should help you block off time to get started and prevent procrastination.

By M. Brooks Most of the time, headaches happen for obvious reasons like stress or being around loud noises, but what about those headaches that seem to sneak up on you out of nowhere? Well, here’s a few reasons for those mystery headaches and what you can do about them. 1. Jumping straight into your workout: Warming up before your workout doesn’t just help to protect your muscles, it also gives your brain an opportunity to adjust to rising adrenaline levels. Avoid headaches by taking a short five or 10 minutes to stretch or walk before doing more intense exercise. 2. You have the day off: Who doesn’t love sleeping in late on a Saturday or having a three-day weekend? It feels good, but the change in routine could cause headaches. This is especially common if your body is accustomed to getting a caffeine jolt every morning and you disturb that groove. Even on your

(NewsUSA) - Marvin Mallon, 86, and his wife, Reva, know how important it is to plan ahead before embarking on a long journey -- especially when it comes to their health. During a road trip through the United States and Canada, Marvin Mallon needed regular hormone injections to treat his prostate cancer. Thanks to his Kaiser Permanente physician, the Southern California grandfather was able to receive his treatment during a stopover in Helena, Montana. "I was miles away from my doctor, and Kaiser Permanente saw to it that I was taken care of," said Mallon. "Older adults usually have several health concerns," said Jose Dryjanski, M.D., a travel medicine specialist at Kaiser Permanente in Southern California. "They should consult with their doctor or a travel clinic before going on a long trip. Being prepared is the key to staying

you leave. Bring a list of all your medications in case you lose them or need medical attention. Bring important medicines in a carry-on bag. If you have diabetes, check with your airline about travel restrictions regarding insulin, insulin syringes and blood glucose testing supplies. 3. Drink bottled water, and avoid raw food. Stay hydrated. If you're traveling in a developing country, drink bottled water and bottled juices only. Avoid ice, ice cream, soft cheeses and raw vegetables. Bacteria found in these foods can cause diarrhea and vomiting. 4. Exercise often. Take stretch or walk breaks, especially if you're on a plane or in a car. Sitting for long periods of time can cause vein and pulmonary clots. 5. Prevent falls and injuries. It's easy to fall while traveling. You can stumble on a curb while sightseeing, or trip in your unfamiliar hotel room. Walk BOOMER, See page 12A

Your weight: Researchers at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine found that obese people experience frequent headaches nearly two times more than adults at a healthy weight. Shed the excess pounds with changes in diet and exercise. 4. Chewing gum: The repetitive motion of chewing could cause a headache, but more surprisingly, a key ingredient could be the cause of a sudden headache: aspartame. This artificial sweetener is found

in many popular brands of sugar-free gum and has been linked to numerous serious health issues. Replace your gum with mints (be sure to check the labels for aspartame). 5. Your job: If you spend the bulk of your day in front of a computer screen under fluorescent lights (or sunlight if you’re lucky enough to have a coveted window seat), the glare bouncing off your computer screen affects certain cells in your eyes and can frequently trigger headaches. Give your eyes a rest by taking frequent breaks and covering your computer screen with an anti-glare shield.

Four Surprising Tips on Staying Vital as You Age

By Vi-An Nguyen We know to eat right and work out, but there are a host of lesser-known life-lengthening strategies in the book Aging Wisely by Robert A. Levine, M.D. See five of his surprising tips on staying vital as you age—“simple guidelines for people who want to age wisely [that] require minor amounts of discipline, but are worthwhile for the payback received in terms of a happy and productive life as we age.” Surprise No. 1: Prevention should start much earlier than most people think. The Alzheimer’s disease process starts in our brains at least twenty to thirty years before its symptoms are clinically manifest, as does atherosclerosis in our arteries. These do not just suddenly develop when we hit age seventy or eighty. This means that if we want to avoid heart attacks, or keep Alzheimer’s from turning us into cognitive

invalids, we must start preventative measures at an early age. The same is true for all the chronic diseases associated with aging. The earlier we start our battles against these diseases, the more likely we are to be successful, allowing us to lead productive and happy lives as we grow older. A preventative program should begin when we are in our forties to be most effective. Surprise No. 2: A few simple changes will help you fight a whole range of disease. Protecting ourselves against Alzheimer’s, heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, and COPD all require similar actions and behavioral changes. Thus, fighting one disease means we are fighting them all. First of all, smoking cigarettes is absolutely forbidden because of its destructive effect on multiple bodily systems. Secondly, a sedentary life is a killer. Daily aerobic exercise as

part of our routine is a necessary requirement if we are attempting to age well. Do up to an hour of aerobic exercise every day if possible, but whatever can be done should be done. Surprise No. 3: Helping your body helps your brain. Aerobic exercise is more important in enhancing brain function and memory than any other activity. Chemicals are released in the brain with exercise that stimulate neurogenesis at any age—the growth of new brain cells. So any exercise we do is beneficial to our brains, as well as the rest of our bodies. Surprise No. 4. Socialization plays a big part in preventing Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. It is important to be involved socially with other people on a regular basis when we are older as well as when young. Interaction with different people stimulates the brain and enhances thinking and memory.

What’s a few drinks with co-workers or friends while you’re networking or enjoying a party? In the moment, nothing but casual fun (and maybe some extra liquid courage), but if this is your weekly routine the affects may hang around longer than your buzz.

Studies Question Need to Watch Your Salt

By Brenda Goodman, MA Worried about your salt intake? You may not need to be. A trio of studies has given us a clearer picture of the relationship between salt and heart health. Although we’ve been told for years to watch our salt, experts say new research questions that. “You don’t need to be freaking out about salt,” says Suzanne Oparil, MD, a cardiologist and blood pressure expert at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Why? Two of the new studies found that for most people -- especially those younger than 55 and those who don’t have high blood pressure -- there’s a sweet spot for sodium in the range of 3,000 to 6,000 milligrams a day. As long as sodium intake stays in that range, there seems to be little impact on the heart or blood pressure, those studies found. In comparison, a teaspoon of salt contains about 2,300 milligrams of sodium. And the good news is that most of us are already there. According to the CDC, the average American gets about 3,400 milligrams a day. And 95% of Americans get less than 6,000 milligrams a day, according to the U.S. government. Those two studies gauged the amount of sodium eaten SALT, See page 10B

over. Consuming alcohol affects your body’s absorption of B12, an essential nutrient. This can cause fatigue and even make you light-headed in some cases. Brittle Nails and Hair Alcohol is seriously dehydrating and if there’s one thing your hair and nails need to stay healthy it’s proper hydration. Drinking alcohol on

the regular can make your hair dry and brittle, and possible lead to hair loss. A Bigger Belly You may not drink beer, but you can still get what looks like a beer belly! Alcohol is full of empty calories that tend to collect around your middle. Bad Memory You might not remember much after a “sunglasses and Advil” night of drinking, but heavy drinking over time can lead to memory loss issues. Anxiety If you notice yourself feeling more moody – anxious, irritable or nervous – you may be able to blame it on the alcohol. Even drinking small amounts of alcohol can amplify your emotions.

White People Create App to Avoid ‘Sketchy’ Areas

By Maxwell Strachan Two white people are launching an app that seeks to help people avoid “sketchy” areas. That would all be well and good, except that the app depends in large part on a Yelp-like rating system based on the personal views of Americans, a people historically known to mask the occasional racist view behind words like “dangerous” and “drugs.” The app, SketchFactor, is available on iTunes. Its Manhattan-based creators, Allison McGuire and Daniel Herrington, hope that users will rate the “relative sketchiness” of a given area on a five-point scale. The app will also use publicly available data to help complete its sketchiness rankings. How are we supposed to define “sketchiness”? According to the Team SketchFactor blog, “it means an event that’s uncomfortable and out of the ordinary.”

SketchFactor co-founder Allison McGuire

A screenshot of the SketchFactor app

If the phrase “uncomfortable and out of the ordinary” sounds like a dog whistle for “minorities,” that’s understandable. After all, it’s easy to imagine a white dude who feels “uncomfortable and out of the ordinary” in a predominantly black neighborhood jumping onto SketchFactor and reporting that he felt “a lil sketched out LOL.” It’s never a great sign when an app’s creators have to clar-

ify that they are not “racists, bigots, [or] sexists” before the thing even launches. But in a phone interview with The Huffington Post, McGuire contended that an upvotedownvote rating system will keep super-racist posts from overrunning the app. She also noted that while users can search specifically for crime-related ratings, people can also limit their searches to “bizarre discovery,” “catcalling” or “racial profiling.”

Even Timex is Making a Smartwatch Now

If you’re one of the few people who actually has a smartwatch, you know it can’t do much without a smartphone. In order for most smartwatches to be fully functional, they need to be paired to the minicomputer that we carry around in our pockets and purses all the time. But Timex, the 160-yearold company known more for inexpensive but reliable watches than for technological innovation, is hoping to change that. Timex announced plans for a smartwatch that connects to a cellular network, bucking the trend that most smartwatches must be paired with a smartphone in order to work. Timex’s jump into wearable tech comes as the biggest technology companies are girding for battle over your wrist. As the smartphone market matures, wearable technology is seen by many companies as the next area ripe for innovation. Samsung, Sony and Pebble, a crowdfunded upstart, are the leaders in the smartwatch category, according

to Canalys, a research firm. Apple is rumored to be planning a smartwatch announcement this year. The Timex Ironman One GPS+, as it’s called, is no Dick Tracy-style wrist computer. It will not let you make calls, send texts, take photos or post Instagram pictures. It’s more of a beefed-up activity tracker. It’s waterproof to 50 meters, uses GPS to track how far and fast you’ve run, plays MP3s (via Bluetooth) and will show you your email (though you’ll have to forward messages to the unique email address that comes with the

watch). And because it’s connected to a cellular network, you can upload your activities to popular apps like Strava, RunKeeper and MapMyFitness right from the watch. The Ironman One GPS+ only connects to AT&T’s network, and it comes with a one-year data subscription to AT&T. The Ironman One GPS+, which goes on sale in the fall for $399, has eight hours of battery life when it’s being used as a GPS and the cellular capability is turned on, and three days when it’s simply used as a watch.

Russian Hackers Stole 1.2 Billion Internet Credentials

A cybersecurity firm said it has uncovered about 1.2 billion Internet logins and passwords and more than 500 million email addresses amassed by a Russian crime ring, the largest known collection of such stolen data, the New York Times reported. Hold Security of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, which discovered the credentials, said they were stolen from

some 420,000 websites, according to the report. Hold Security declined to identify the sites that were breached, citing nondisclosure agreements and concerns that they remained vulnerable to attack, the paper reported on its website. “Hackers did not just target U.S. companies, they targeted any website they could get, ranging

from Fortune 500 companies to very small websites. And most of these sites are still vulnerable,” the New York Times quoted Alex Holden, the founder of Hold Security, as saying. Reuters could not independently confirm the details of the report. Dmitri Alperovitch, chief technology officer of the cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike told Reuters that the stolen passwords could be used to access other accounts beyond the ones on sites that were breached because people commonly use the same passwords for multiple sites. “A compromise like this could mushroom,” said Alperovitch. Hold Security in February said it had uncovered stolen credentials from some 360 million accounts that were available for sale on cyber black markets.

Big Bang Discovery Opens Doors to the “Multiverse” Gravitational waves detected in the aftermath of the Big Bang suggest one universe just might not be enough. By Dan Vergano Bored with your old dimensions—up and down, right and left, and back and forth? So tiresome. Take heart, folks. The latest news from Big Bang cosmologists offers us some relief from our humdrum four-dimensional universe. Gravitational waves rippling through the aftermath of the cosmic fireball, physicists suggest, point to us inhabiting a multiverse, a universe filled with many universes. That’s because those gravitational wave results point to a particularly prolific and potent kind of “inflation” of the early universe, an exponential expansion of the dimensions of space to many times the size of our own

In a recent press release, astronomers declared that they found “proof” for the inflationary Big Bang theory in observations of the so-called Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB). The CMB is said to be the remnant signal left over from the beginning of the Universe. planation for a lot of the unique observations we have made about our universe,” says MIT physicist Alan Guth, who first wrote about inflation theory in 1980. “Life being here, for example.” Lunchtime The Big Bang and inflation make the universe look like the ultimate free

(Art by Moonrunner Design) cosmos in the first fraction of a second of the Big Bang, some 13.82 billion years ago. “In most models, if you have inflation, then you have a multiverse,” said Stanford physicist Andrei Linde. Linde, one of cosmological inflation’s inventors, spoke on Monday at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics event where the BICEP2 astrophysics team unveiled the gravitational wave results. Essentially, in the models favored by the BICEP2 team’s observations, the process that inflates a universe looks just too potent to happen only once; rather, once a Big Bang starts, the process would happen repeatedly and in multiple ways. (Learn more about how universes form in “Cosmic Dawn” on the National Geographic website.) “A multiverse offers one good possible ex-

zas that encompass many more dimensions, but are devoid of such mundane things as atoms or photons of light. In this multiverse spawned by “chaotic” inflation, the Big Bang is just a starting point, giving rise to multiple universes (including ours) separated by unimaginable gulfs of distance. How far does the multiverse stretch? Perhaps to infinity, suggests MIT physicist Max Tegmark, writing for Scientific American. That means that spread across space at distances far larger than the roughly 92 billion light-year width of the universe that we can observe, other universes reside, some with many more dimensions and different physical properties and trajectories. (While the light from the most distant stuff we can see started out around 14 billion light-years away, the universe is expanding at an accelerating rate, stretching the boundaries of the observable universe since then.)

Finally, President Obama extended an invitation to African nations to participate in a Summit. It was rather short but yet it was a summit. He invited 52 of the 54 nations – omitting Sudan and Zimbabwe which he declares as being wicked. I have seen no official news reports about the number that actually responded. I heard anywhere from 40 to 50. One thing is certain. This event was historical and has put the African continent on everyone’s mind. Seeing thousands of people filling up many of DC’s hotels and motorcades racing everywhere made the residents of the nation’s capital realize that something big was going on and it was a beautiful Black thing. Africa has made it clear to the world: We have come to do business. As Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete said “Africa wants to move away from a relationship of aid donor and aid recipient to one of investment and trade”. Yes, it is not about feed the hungry anymore. The continent that has been blessed with the most natural resources in the world is ready to begin cashing in. One thing that must be addressed immediately is the lack of power. You

can’t have a thriving nation without electricity. It is the lifeblood of business. President Obama has promised $7 billion in power plant investment. He was so motivated this week that he claims he is going to double down on that amount. General Electric has stated that it will invest 2 billion dollars also to the expansion of electricity. This isn’t an instant event. Electricity cannot be stored. It is generated and then used or wasted. Thus, ahead of building these plants must be expansion of businesses, manufacturing plants, schools, hospitals, homes, shopping centers, etc. Besides having sources to apply this new electrical wave there will also be millions of new jobs which require training and education. The good news is it appears that everyone understands that now. President Obama stated he was investing in the next generation. He gets it. General Electric CEO Jeff Immelt stated, “We gave it to the Europeans first and to the Chinese later, but today its wide open for us.” Yes, I think they are all starting to get it. I was impressed with the efforts of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce (of which I am a Board Member) to support

this summit. Its Africa Business Initiative (ABI) hosted business related events before, during and after the Summit. The Corporate Council on Africa played an active role as well as the Bloomberg Foundation. Mel Foote, CEO of the Constituency for Africa, worked himself like a Trojan in getting the word out and pumping up people of the African Diaspora. Corporate giants like Citigroup, Ford Motor Co., Lockheed Martin and Chevron participated, to name a few. It was Africa’s finest “hour” and we should thank God for this. History has not been good for the African Diaspora, particularly Africa itself. To paraphrase the late Sam Cooke, a change has come. We had breakfast with members of the Benin Chamber of Commerce and Industry to reflect on what just happened. They stated that the most important event was the discussion on the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA). The President and other principles have resolved to improve it. That is long overdue.

Working at Taking a Vacation

Bishop Minerva Carcaño, the Los Angeles Area Resident Bishop of the United Methodist Church, is acting with urgency. Along with more than 100 other religious leaders and activists, she was arrested for civil disobedience at the White House for protesting the deportation of the unaccompanied children crossing our border after fleeing from the brutal violence and poverty of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. A few days earlier, she visited Port Hueneme Naval Base in Oxnard, Calif. for the second time and met some of the hundreds of migrant children temporarily housed there. Joining her this time were Bishop J. Jon Bruno of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, Robert Ross of the California Endowment, and Fred Ali of the Weingart Foundation. Referring to first visit to Port Hueneme, she said, “The naval base has been turned into a holding site for these children, and it was to capacity with 575 children and young people between the ages of 13 and 17, and they’ve all been through horrific experiences. Many of the girls have experienced sexual assaults, and some of them have been raped

are some folks who must work in August; because they don’t have the same vacation privileges that so many do. A year ago, Forbes writer Tanya Mohn wrote that the United States is one of a few developed countries that does not require paid vacation for employees. While many who work for large corporations are allowed one or two weeks of paid vacation (or more if they have longer tenure), one in four workers receive no paid vacation. Most of them are low-wage workers, or people who work for small businesses. Perhaps they need the “chill” time more than the professionals who earn it easily. In most European countries, including France, Italy, and Germany, workers are entitled to about 20 days a year. Many of the shops in Paris are closed in August because so many people have taken vacations. Inconvenient? That’s just how it is. People need time off to relax, replenish, and revive. In Japan and Canada, people are entitled to at least 10 days off. That’s less than the European Union countries, but more than the United States. What do these countries see that we don’t? They see that a relaxed workforce is a more productive workforce.

. . . If you ask them what the prayer in their heart is, they’ll tell you immediately, with a sense of faith, that indeed it’s going to happen – and their prayer is that God will give them life.” Bishop Carcaño spoke to the Children’s Defense Fund (CDF)’s Samuel DeWitt Proctor Institute for Child Advocacy Ministry at CDF Haley Farm in midJuly about the humanitarian crisis of thousands of desperate children crossing our border. The details are haunting: An unaccompanied toddler being cared for by little girls sitting in a locked cell for 12 days. A grandmother with three little granddaughters who a gang had threatened to take if she didn’t pay more than $20,000. Nearly 60,000 unaccompanied children traveling alone. They are in many ways the latest innocent victims of the U.S. war on drugs. Even as the U.S. worked with Mexico and Colombia to close down the drug cartels and gangs there, the massive market for illegal drugs here in our nation has remained. To feed our illegal drug habit, the drug lords and vicious gangs have moved operations and created unprecedented levels of violence in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.

Now these essentially lawless countries have become some of the most dangerous places on the planet. Part of the solution may rest with the faith community here and abroad. I am encouraged to see the coming together of many faiths in McAllen, Texas to respond to the crisis in their city. But this crisis needs a compassionate response from every city and our entire nation. I shudder when I see the angry outbursts about these helpless children coming from some communities. The best solution, as always for children, is to reunite them with their families whenever and as soon as possible. Of the nearly 60,000 unaccompanied children who have crossed the border since October, it is reported that nearly 50,000 of them have been released to sponsors or family members, sometimes even to a parent already living in the U.S. The continuing horror is for those children being kept in detention like those Bishop Carcaño keeps visiting.

Julianne Malveaux I don’t do vacations well. I have to be pushed and prodded, just about guilt-tripped, into taking time off. Sure, I’ll take an hour here, an evening there, to read a book or play word games. But it just about takes an act of God to get me to go play. Yet, when I play, I find a lightness of spirit, rejuvenation, a rush of fresh ideas, a cessation of frustration. I play and remind myself of an 8-year-old me, pigtails (ugh) flying, water fighting, immersed in a careless and carefree world. I like to think that those few days, or maybe weeks in August prepared me for the coming school year. And I always think of September 1 as the new year, the day when many schools open and when we start our academic year over. Few folks, it is said, work in August. Congress is on break and will accomplish nothing, not that they accomplished anything when they were not on break. That means that Washington, D.C. is kind of empty and restaurants you may have waited a month to reserve are open for walk-in diners.

They see that workplace stress is an issue. They understand that people “snap” when there is an unrelenting amount of pressure they must deal with. I write about this as a labor economist, a person who studies workplaces, their designs and their outcomes. I write about this as a person who has managed people and who understands their challenges. I write about this as a person who will not take a vacation unless you make me. And I write about this as an African American who understands how infrequently African American workers have the opportunity to simply chill. African American families earn about $31,000 a year, compared to about $50,000 for Whites. African Americans have much higher unemployment rates than the overall average. African Americans are overrepresented in the number of people holding multiple jobs. African Americans are in the most need of chill time and the least likely to afford it. VACATION, See page 10B

The nation’s digital technology and social media companies are helping to transform how people throughout the world communicate and do business. In the process, Silicon Valley has become more than a geographical headquarter for digital and social media companies. It’s where cutting edge technological research is being conducted. There are, however, some glaring contradictions and serious disparity issues involving some of the most financially profitable social media companies in the world. They are the issues of economic inequality and inequity. The companies lead the world in technology but ranks at the bottom when it comes to workforce inclusiveness and overall economic fairness toward Black Americans and Latino Americans. Recent research on tech and social media company workforce diversity in America revealed that Black Americans are over indexed when it comes to high tech and social media products and services. But that’s not reflected in the workforce. For example, of Yahoo, Google, Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, and eBay each hired Black Americans at a rate of only 2 percent or less. The boards of many of these tech and social media

companies are even whiter –some with no Black board members or top executives. At a time when the U.S. economy is recovering, this is not the time for racial exclusion, inequality, and economic disparities concerning race. Doing business with Black-owned businesses must also be included in the remedies that now have to be planned and implemented to rectify this terrible and devastating retrenchment of civil rights and economic equality. We resolutely agree with the frontline advocacy and effective leadership of Jesse L. Jackson, Sr. and the Rainbow PUSH Coalition on these issues. In a timely televised interview on the Bloomberg Business Channel, Jackson asserted, “Patterns of real racial segregation are in Silicon Valley. The evidence is that we over index in purchasing their products. But when it comes to employment….. There is evidence of a pattern of racial exclusion. Their profits are soaring, yet the disparities abound. eBay does not have a Black or a Latino on their board. Inclusion must be intentional. There is no job in Silicon Valley that a Black or a Latino could not hold. I hope EOC will go to Silicon Valley and conduct hearings. We intend to have

a fair equitable relationship.” We all are aware that our long struggle for freedom, justice and equality is today still very much needed. In fact, due to Black American and Latino American large percentage participation in social media that ranges from 30 percent to 40 percent, we have an obligation to speak out and stand up to show our support for equality. Central to the goal of establishing the “Beloved Community,” as articulated by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. years ago, was the prerequisite of attaining economic justice for all. There is no question that Jesse Jackson is on the right road at the right time to challenge Silicon Valley. We should all join in this important movement for equality, fairness and justice. Too often some of us sit idly by on the sidelines of history as spectators while social change unfolds. We should all support the Rainbow PUSH Coalition’s leadership on this matter. This is a struggle that we must win. The LOW, See page 10B

MANAGER From page 1A held a press conference to protest how the city was handling the selection of its new manager. But since he’s arrived, Nyhoff has made it a point to meet with some of the same community leaders involved in that press conference. “I have met with the NAACP more than any other group in the city,” he pointed out. “I’ve had my police chief there to let me know who the leaders are in the AfricanAmerican community.” He also referred to his own track record hiring African Americans for city management positions. “I was the guy who hired the first African-American police chief in the state of Colorado,” he said, “and my deputy assistant in Modesto was AfricanAmerican.” Nyhoff notes some of the similarities and differences between Modesto and Oxnard. Both communities are heavily influenced by agriculture and have large populations of farm workers. Modesto is about 45 percent Latino, Oxnard much higher. They each have struggling downtown areas and they both have problems with gangs. He thinks however that Oxnard’s economy has more potential for growth. It has a port and a harbor and it has strong retail and industry to support its tax base. “This economy here,” he said, “has far greater ability to be stronger than what I had in the Central Valley.” His tenure in Modesto was tumultuous largely because he was hired just as California’s economy began to tank. What had been a boom town in the early 2000s went bust in a hurry in 2007 and 2008. “I think when the good times were so good, everyone thought they would never stop,” he explained. “I like to say that these cities were like many of our own citizens in that we thought that prosperity would never end.” Nyhoff promises to be committed to fiscal responsibility and good budget management, which leads him head-on to the problem that has plagued Oxnard for the last several years—city officials’ fiscal accountability. In light of the Ventura County District Attorney’s scolding of city officials in 2012 for being lax and unethical in their expense reporting, he knows he has his work cut out for him. At the moment, he’s still learning the city’s budget structure. In fact, most of his time right now has been consumed with budget meetings—sixteen of them this month alone. He says he believes in accountability and feels a strong sense of responsibility about handling tax monies. “I have threehundred million dollars of other peoples’ money to manage,” he said. “This is all of our money and it belongs to all of our community.” He intends to work toward transparency and to establish a better reporting trail for city officials. “One thing that I will promise to everybody,” he asserted, “is that I will give the highest level of commitment to integrity and ethics. My bottom line is, always be truthful.” In terms of the city’s economy, he would like to see some of the city’s development matched up to its surrounding neighborhoods and cultures. For Nyhoff, one size does not fit all. “I think The Collection is very successful because they put you in a certain sized shoe and there are people willing to wear that shoe,” he explained. “But I don’t think you want to have everything the same.” He believes that understanding and recognizing neighborhoods and cultures should influence the city’s approach when it envisions and plans for economic development. For instance, in the downtown area. “I think we should be looking at the cultures that are the strongest,” he noted, “and do some special things there.” Nyhoff believes that Oxnard citizens should be en-

couraged by their history and their cultural assets and he offered a hopeful word for local residents: “I think that this city has worn itself down. It’s easier to talk about the bad then the good. There’s such beauty here. There’s such beauty to being both a farm community and an ocean front city.” For him, the future of Oxnard is bright and should be celebrated. “The ability to grow this economy smart is enormous,” he said. “There are too many assets here not to pursue that.” DUI From page 1A Coast Highway when she lost control of the car and crashed into a tree. Najar’s 7-year-old son died and three other people who survived the crash were rushed to the hospital. The crash happened just after 7 p.m. on PCH near Las Posas Road in Point Mugu, the CHP said. Najar was driving a Mustang that was only equipped with four seatbelts, but there may have been five passengers inside, CHP said. The 7-year-old boy was not wearing a seatbelt. Two additional children of Najar’s as well as 33-yearold Vanessa Chavez were also in the car. Chavez suffered multiple fractures and facial injuries, and a 12-yearold boy suffered a broken arm. Najar showed signs of intoxication. She was arrested and faces felony DUI charges. Additional charges are pending. OFFICER From page 1A 16,500 tons, a nuclear-powered propulsion system helps push the ship through the water at more than 20 knots. The Navy’s ballistic missile submarines, often referred to as “boomers,” serve as an undetectable launch platform for intercontinental ballistic missiles. They are designed specifically for stealth, extended patrols and the precise delivery of missiles if directed by the President. The Ohio-class design allows the submarines to operate for 15 or more years between major overhauls. On average, the submarines spend 77 days at sea followed by 35 days in-port for maintenance. “We demand the highest standards from Petty Officer Arnold, technically and personally,” said Rear Admiral Charles A. Richard, commander, Submarine Group Ten in Kings Bay, Ga. “His Commanding Officer, his country, and I take great pride in his willingness to raise his hand and volunteer to serve the nation. The importance of our Sailors is immeasurable; people like Petty Officer Arnold are crucial to ensuring our submarines are operating at their best and the mission is flawlessly executed. I’m so very proud he is on our team.” Arnold is part of the boat’s Blue crew, one of the two rotating crews, which allow the ship to be deployed on missions more often without taxing one crew too much. A typical crew on this submarine is approximately 150 officers and enlisted Sailors. Because of the stressful environment aboard submarines, personnel are accepted only after rigorous testing and observation. Submariners are some of the most highly trained and skilled people in the Navy. The training is highly technical and each crew has to be able to operate, maintain, and repair every system or piece of equipment on board. Regardless of their specialty, everyone also has to learn how everything on the ship works and how to respond in emergencies to become “qualified in submarines” and earn the right to wear the coveted gold or silver dolphins on their uniform. “My rate is one of the few on the boat that allows us to work on almost everything, fresh water, hydraulics, electronics, all aspects of our department we are responsible for maintaining, and

thus need to be a jack-of-alltrades and self-sufficient,” Arnold said. Although it is difficult for most people to imagine living on a submarine, challenging submarine living conditions actually build strong fellowship among the crew. The crews are highly motivated, and quickly adapt to changing conditions. It is a busy life of specialized work, watches, and drills. “I wasn’t completely happy with my current job in the civilian world and I was an Eagle Scout, so after attending the California Maritime Academy and working for a few years, I decided to follow my original dream and join the Navy. I met wife through a friend in the Navy, and we just had our first child – it’s very close community of friends and family, taking care and looking out for each other,” Arnold added. As a member of one of the U.S. Navy’s most relied upon assets, Arnold and other USS Alaska (SSBN 732) sailors know they are part of a legacy that will last beyond their lifetimes. HEART From page 2A 3. Live in fellowship with God. If I live like the world lives, I will get what the world gets! (Galatians 6:8) warns us if I sow to the flesh, I will reap corruption. Matthew 6:31-33 encourages us to live dependent on God not the world. You fellowship with God by reading the bible and belonging to a church that you are actively involved in, and by being with people who fellowship with God. Most of all, be careful who you give your ear to because Whoever gets your ear gets your heart! Lonnie G. McCowan is pastor at The Miracle Center of Ventura, in Ventura, CA.

EBOLA From page 3A An additional uproar erupted when Macky Sall, the president of Senegal, told a forum conducted by Charlie Rose during the U.S. Africa Summit that Ebola “is not an African disease. You have to see this virus as a threat against humanity.” But it remains a sticky issue as to who will be the recipients of the vaccine when it is once again available. “There are virtually no doses available,” said a spokesperson for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The drugs, which have been tried on people without any symptoms of the disease (vomiting, fever and diarrhea), are all in the experimental stage, according to the World Health Organization. To assist in the distribution of the drugs, the WHO has called a meeting of experts to help determine which of the four countries in West Africa should be a priority. Ebola is not a combination of “ebony” and “Angola,” as some have suggested, but gets its name from a river in Congo, where the disease was first detected. That, of course, gives the disease an African origin, although it is still not clear from where and how the disease began. In this regard, the discussion of Ebola is very reminiscent of the HIV-AIDS discussion. But as The CDC director, Tom Frieden, has advised, this is not the time to argue the origins of the disease. “The bottom line with Ebola is we know how to stop it: traditional public health,” said Frieden. “Find patients, isolate and care for them; find their contacts; educate people; and strictly follow infection control in hospitals. Do those things with meticulous care and Ebola goes away.” Therein lies the problem in many parts of West Africa, where far too many of the afflicted are wary of hospitals because they have seen so many of their loved ones perish while being treated. Rather than Ebola going away, those afflicted are running

away.

DEBT From page 3A According to Prudential, Blacks are significantly more likely to have some type of debt (94 percent) compared with the general population (82 percent). Credit card debt, student loan debt and personal loans are all significantly higher in the Black community. College-educated Blacks report student loan debt at a ratio of nearly 2 to 1 side-byside with all college-educated Americans. In turn, it has been reported that one in four Blacks has felt anxiety or depression due to debt. Debt has a serious hold on our community and it requires more than just a simple fix. It can impact a person’s ability to be approved for loans, secure housing in decent neighborhoods or even land a job. “[Debt] can harm credit scores, which can tip employers’ hiring decisions, restrict access to mortgages, and even increase insurance costs,” said Caroline Ratcliffe, a senior fellow at the Urban Institute.

GORELL From page 6A While I personally believe that the new water bond does not invest enough in water storage options, I’m happy that this bill includes money for groundwater storage and recycling projects that are important to Ventura County. The passage of this bill allows us to begin dealing with problems that should have been addressed a decade ago.”

CREDIT From page 5A goes on both your credit reports, so careful account monitoring is critical. If your kids haven't yet demonstrated financial maturity they may not be ready for an unsecured credit card or loan. Other alternatives include: • A secured credit card, where users can charge up to the amount deposited to open the account. Purchases are charged against the account's revolving credit limit. As they pay off the balance the available credit rises, just like a regular credit card. After a period of on-time payments, ask the lender to convert it to an unsecured card, or to at least add an unsecured amount to the account. • A prepaid debit card, where you load the card with money in advance and they use the card for purchases or ATM withdrawals. You monitor account activity online or by phone. • With each, fees and restrictions may apply so shop around for the best terms. If you need help educating your kids about personal financial management, a good resource is What's My Score (www.whatsmyscore.org), a financial literacy program for young adults run by Visa Inc. It features a comprehensive workbook called Money 101: A Crash Course in Better Money Management, which can be downloaded for free. Bottom line: Getting your kids off on the right foot, credit-wise, can make all the difference to their future financial health.

Crack cocaine is a product derived when cocaine powder is processed with an alkali, typically common baking soda. Gram for gram, there is less active drug in crack cocaine than in powder cocaine. People of color account for over 98 percent of persons sent to California prisons for possession of crack cocaine for sale. From 2005 to 2010, Blacks accounted for 77.4 percent of state prison commitments for crack possession for sale, Latinos accounted for 18.1 percent. Whites accounted for less than 2 percent of all those sent to California prisons in that five year period. Blacks make up 6.6 percent of the population in California; Latinos 38.2 percent, and whites 39.4 percent. OBAMA From page 7A Observers say that in Mali, France has intervened to prop up the Bamako government to put down the aspirations for independence in Azawad, where the Tuareg have called for their own state. In the corridors of the United Nations, there are suggestions that France continues to show that colonialism is not dead and that France’s colonialism is purely economic. One example cited at the U.N. is that France wants to charge other U.N. member states an “airfield service” fee in northern Mali. The French mission to the U.N. was asked to comment but had not responded as of AmNews press time. The French have also refused to respond to questions from the U.N. press corps concerning the purchase of a $40 million jet by Mali President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, which was criticized by the International Monetary Fund. An IMF spokesman, Gerry Rice, explained to the press at the U.N. on May 22 that his organization was “concerned” about the “quality” of recent decisions by the Keita regime, including the purchase of the airplane. Emira Woods, the global client principal for social impact programs at ThoughtWorks, a technology firm committed to social and economic justice, explained to the AmNews that the U.S. and France have “prioritized military efforts in Africa.” Woods, who also serves as an associate fellow at the Washington, D.C.-based Institute of Policy Studies, argues that the U.S.-French relationship is purely economic. “Both nations are interested in the resources in the region,” she said. Understand that 70 percent of energy in France is nuclear, Woods stated. Analysts say that oil-rich Mali and Niger also have huge uranium deposits. The French nuclear company AREVA has just reportedly signed a new lease with the regimes in Niger and Mali. Meanwhile, hundreds of protesters in Niger have been demanding transparency concerning the new lease agreement, which they say does not benefit the people. Some analysts say that AREVA may have agreed to give up a number of tax breaks and a 12 percent increase in royalties to the government. Chad’s role in all of this has been to supply troops for the French-led intervention

in Mali. The regime, led by President Idriss Deby, has proven to be an indispensable ally to Western powers looking for allies in the Sahel, according to the Foreign Military Studies Office website OE Watch. Woods, addressing the recent U.S.-Africa Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C., stated that the “vast resources in Africa cannot be extracted to benefit the 1 percent.” On Aug. 9, the Washington Post editorialized, “Sadly, the summit dealt little with human rights improvements that would sustain Africa’s growth.” “I don’t see any of this as a hopeful sign for Africa,” Woods told the AmNews.

Lee Daniels’ next project will depict the true story of a college-bound football player who was falsely accused of rape. According to Variety, the director is currently developing “The Brian Banks Story,” about the AllAmerican high school football player who, in 2002, had committed to USC’s football program before being accused of rape. Banks maintained his innocence, but a hasty plea bargain resulted in Brian serving over five years in prison, five years on parole and registering as a sex offender. Through the California Innocence Project, Banks’ conviction was overturned in 2012. He played in four pre-season games for the Atlanta Falcons and is now a motivational speaker and an activist and spokesperson for the California Innocence Project.

Lee Daniels “All I ever wanted was to prove my innocence,” Banks said. “Telling my story in the form of a feature film is beyond my wildest dreams.” The project will be produced by Amy Baer through her Gidden Media banner and directed by Daniels. Justin Brooks and Neil Strum are executive producing.

The initial line up for the 2014 New York Comedy Festival (NYCF) was announced today, featuring shows by Amy Schumer, Hannibal Buress, Tig Notaro and more comedians du jour, but this year's Carnegie Hall show is reserved for Mr. Cosby. Cosby will perform at the historic venue on Saturday, November 8 during the festival which runs from November 5-9. "I would like to thank the New York Comedy Festival for bringing me to the great Carnegie Hall. Believe me, I have practiced," said Bill Cosby in a press release.

"He's still struggling, but he's a fighter," attorney Benedict Morelli told NBC's "Today" show. Morgan, best known for his roles on TV comedies "30 Rock" and "Saturday Night Live," broke a leg, several ribs and his nose in June when a Wal-Mart Stores Inc tractor-trailer slammed into a limo bus Morgan and his entourage were riding in.

Chattrisse Dolabaille to Play Missy Elliott in Aaliyah Biopic Bill Cosby to Perform at Carnegie Hall for 2014 New York Comedy Festival

By Wilson Morales Canadian actress Chattrisse Dolabaille has been cast to play singer-songwriter-producer and Grammy Award winner Missy Elliott in the Lifetime TV biopic of singer Aaliyah in “Aaliyah: Princess of R&B,” starring Nickelodeon actress Alexandra Shipp in the title role. Missy Elliott, along with Timberland, were instrumental to Aaliyah’s career, serving as record producers to her second album, One in a Million; it sold 3.7 million copies in the United States and over eight million copies worldwide. Also cast in the film are Rachael Crawford and Sterling Jarvis as Aaliyah’s parents Diane and Michael Haughton, Lyriq Bent will portray her uncle Barry Hankerson, Izaak Smith as Timberland, and Anthony Grant as Damon Dash. A.J. Saudin and Jesse Sukunda will play the older and younger version of Aaliyah’s brother Rashad, respectively. This film will be based off of Christopher Farley‘s best-selling biography Aaliyah: More Than a Woman. The film is being produced by Aaliyah Productions Inc., with Howard Braunstein (The Informant!) Debra Martin Chase (The Princess

Diaries), and daytime talk show host Wendy Williams serving as executive producers. Casting the film is Tracy “Twinkie” Byrd. Bradley Walsh (Turn the Beat Around) will direct from a script written by Michael Elliot (Brown Sugar). Before Beyonce and before Rihanna, self-proclaimed “street but sweet” Aaliyah was poised to become a global icon with top-selling albums, a hot movie career and an adoring fan base. But behind the spotlight, Brooklynborn, Detroit-raised Aaliyah Dana Haughton struggled to succeed in a tough business while staying grounded in the midst of her growing celebrity. The film follows the beautiful and talented performer’s inspirational journey, from

her debut on “Star Search” at the age of ten to the challenges she faced during her rise to become the Princess of R&B. On August 25, 2001, at the height of her popularity, her life was tragically cut short when a plane carrying the singer and some of her video crew crashed after takeoff from a Bahamian runway. Although just 22-years-old at the time of her death, Aaliyah continues to lead a legacy as Billboard’s tenth most famous R&B artist of the past 25 years and one of the recording industry’s most successful artists in history. This will be Dolabaille’s feature debut and the actress/singer put together a digital dossier for folks to know more about her.

Tisha Campbell-Martin Reveals She was Sexually Assaulted

From starring in films such as “School Daze” to the hit 90s comedy sitcom, “Martin,” Tisha CampbellMartin’s roles have often brought happiness and laughter to fans. Recently the actress, singer, and activist appeared as a guest panelist on daytime advice show, “The Daily Helpline,” where she offered advice to 20-year-old guest, Tamesha, who was suffering from binge eating and addiction to alcohol after being sexual assaulted when she was 12-years-old. “You can no longer be a victim, you have to be victorious at this point,” the 45-year-old actress said.

Tisha Campbell-Martin “You can’t play the victim cause at this point, I’m not saying this to put you down or anything. What I’m saying is he’s winning, and you

are allowing him to win. You are making a conscious decision to harm yourself, to hurt yourself and allow this person to still have dominion over your life. You can’t do that anymore.” "The reason why I can absolutely say this to you without judgment or anything else, and this is the first time I ever said this on camera in front of millions, national, people, is that I too have been a victim of the same thing,” she went on to reveal. “When I was three, I was raped by an older person. Now I knew as a child that I did nothing wrong and that this wasn’t my fault, but I found forgiveness in the guilt that I might’ve had.”

News from the D.A. VENTURA - District Attorney Gregory D. Totten announced the arrests of Ojai resident Nelly Luz Rubiano, and Orange County residents Sergio Sanchez Santibanez and Alejandra Rodriguez for felony grand theft and felony foreclosure consultant fraud. The charges are the result of an investigation conducted by the District Attorney's Real Estate Fraud Unit. District Attorney The charges filed Gregory D. Totten against the three defendants arise from a fraudulent short-sale and foreclosure-rescue program called Foreclosure Legal Services (FLS), based in the city of Orange. From 2011 to 2012, the defendants are accused of luring struggling homeowners in Ventura County with false promises to save their homes from foreclosure. FLS promised to purchase distressed properties for less than what was owed (a short sale) and to later sell the properties back to victims at a reduced market value. Once lured in, victims were charged thousands of dollars in illegal up-front fees and received no actual services from the charged defendants. Up-front fees for mortgage loan modification or foreclosure prevention services are illegal in California.

Get the Scoop on Crime! On Tuesday August 12, Oxnard police officers responded to the 3600 block of Leeward Way regarding a call of shots fired from a red vehicle. When officers arrived on scene, Cliff Thieme was contacted and eventually arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and vandalism. Officers learned that the shooting resulted from a “road rage” incident between the suspect and victim at Rice Ave and the 101 freeway. The suspect followed the victim to the 3600 block of Leeward way where an altercation took place. The suspect caused damage to the victim’s vehicle, and at some point during the altercation, produced a handgun and fired one shot in the direction of the victim. The victim was not injured. Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to call the Oxnard Police Department at (805) 385-7740. All events are subject to change.

The Sound Effect band prides themselves in their trueness to live music. All instruments are played live and they never use pre-recorded background tracks at any live performances. This gives them the ability to change the feel of songs as they feel the need to which in turn keeps them fresh and energetic on stage. The fact that the core 4 members of the group have been together for over 11 years makes this possible. Having performed together for so many years also gives them the tightness that distinguishes them from any other group. Besides their unmistakeable talent, they enjoy themselves on stage so much that the feeling is contagious. Their fans become more like family and the vibe they give off becomes their own.

Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250.

Notice to Potential Bidders If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a Trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the

highest bid at a Trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same Lender may hold more than one mortgage or Deed of Trust on the property.

If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 573-1965 or visit this Internet Web site WWW.PRIORITYPOSTING.COM, using the file number assigned to this case 010716-CA. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same Lender may hold more than one mortgage or Deed of Trust on the property. Notice to Property Owner The sale date shown on this Notice of Sale may be postponed one or more times by the Mortgagee, Beneficiary, Trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about Trustee Sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call Priority Posting and Publishing at 714573-1965 for information regarding the Trustee’s Sale or visit the Internet Web site address listed below for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, CA08002485-14-1.

LUSK, DECEASED. A Petition for Probate has been filed by STEPHANIE POLITO in the Superior Court of California, County of VENTURA. The Petition for Probate requests that STEPHANIE POLITO be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the In-

dependent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held on Date: 9/11/2014 at Time: 9:00 AM in Dept.: J6 Room: J6 located at SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF VENTURA, 4353 East Vineyard Ave, Oxnard, CA 93036, Oxnard - Juvenile Courthouse. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk.

The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 2430 LOBELIA DRIVE, OXNARD, CA 93036-6260 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the Note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said Note(s), advances if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligations secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of this Notice of Trustee’s Sale is estimated to be $561,821.85 (Estimated). However, prepayment premiums, accrued interest and advances will increase this figure prior to sale. Beneficiary’s bid at said sale may include all or part of said amount. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the California Financial Code and authorized to do business in California, or other such funds as may be acceptable to the Trustee. In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee’s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right. The property offered for sale excludes all funds held on account by the property receiver, if applicable. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. Notice to Potential Bidders If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a Trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a Trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same Lender may hold more than one mortgage or Deed of Trust on the property. Notice to Property Owner The sale date shown on this Notice of Sale may be postponed one or more times by the Mortgagee, Beneficiary, Trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about Trustee Sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call Priority Posting and Publishing at 714573-1965 for information regarding the Trustee’s Sale or visit the Internet Web site address listed below for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, CA08002575-14-1.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property.

If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those

not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may contact Priority Posting & Publishing for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit its website www.priorityposting.com for information regarding the sale of this property. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the website. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

SALT From page 9A by more than 100,000 people in 17 different countries by measuring the sodium in their urine. Researchers then looked at their blood pressure and the number of heart attacks, strokes, cases of heart failure, and deaths they had over the next 4 years. A third study combined the results of more than 200 previous studies of sodium from around the world. The study researchers then compared average intakes to rates of heart disease and high blood pressure. AFRICA From page 11A the activity under AGOA is oil imports mostly from Angola, Equatorial Guinea and Nigeria. Also, Germany plays a game by manufacturing BMW’s in South Africa and shipping them to the U.S. under the duty free advantage of AGOA. AGOA must be used as it was intended via opening up other industries and having participation from all of the AGOA certified African nations. The Benin chamber is very excited and I am sure all of the other chambers are equally excited. Now, if all of this investment is poised to happen what role will our Export/Import Bank play? It must have a role in financing the upcoming activity. Right now only 1.5% of its business is done in Africa. Currently, of the 42 African nations certified for EX/IM activity only 7 of them are doing any activity – Ethiopia, Kenya, South Africa, Ghana, Angola, Cameroon and Nigeria. I seriously doubt if any Black owned American businesses are getting loans through the EX/IM. The authorization for the EX/IM is up for renewal. If it is not renewed by September 30, 2014 it will cease activity. Now is the time for us to get some real and serious commitments from the managers of EX/IM in terms of serious lending to Black owned firms operating in all the nations of Africa and the entire African Diaspora. I think it is going to happen. Africa is going to really be on the rise. There is so much promise in what happened this week. I am surprised and happy and haven’t felt this good since the Million Man March. Mr. Alford is the co-founder, President/CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce®.

CHILDREN From page 11A sermon, Bishop Carcaño said: “If our children see us ignoring the plight of the immigrant child, what do we teach them? Do we not teach them that immigrant children are worthless, not worth our attention or our care? And what do we teach the immigrant children if they never see anyone extend a hand, a caring hand to them? Do we not confirm that lesson of worthlessness, and do we not teach them that the world is indeed cruel and unjust? And will either lesson bring them and us any justice, any equity, any peace, any joy?” Bishop Carcaño’s words are a reminder that those of us who follow Jesus’ teachings and the call in every major faith tradition to care for children must act on our faith. We must see these thousands of children in need of help right now not as a political dilemma but as an urgent humanitarian crisis. As Bishop Carcaño says: “We must be the strongest witness for justice in God’s reign that we can muster, a witness for the children . . . not just for some children, but for all of God’s children.” As such witnesses, we must help ensure sufficient resources are provided by the government and faith and other community organizations so these vulnerable children will be treated humanely, find safe families and warm food to eat, and receive the counsel and due process hearings guaranteed them in law before any are returned to their dangerous homelands and possible deaths. It is deplorable that Members of Congress left town for their own summer vacations with the humanitarian crisis continuing and without providing the resources the government needs to ensure safety and justice for these innocent children. Marian Wright Edelman is president of the Children’s Defense Fund whose Leave No Child Behind® mission is to ensure every child a Healthy Start, a Head Start, a Fair Start, a Safe Start and a Moral Start in life and successful passage to adulthood with the help of caring families and communities.

The Starbucks barista, standing on her feet all day, and fake smiling when somebody asks for a triple chai latte, the housekeeper at a hotel who hopes the person who left her room a mess also left a tip, the sidewalk sweeper who watches the street he just cleaned muck up in an instant, these are the folks who need vacations. Our national policy does not entitle people to vacation time, sick leave, or other kinds of leave. Too often, employers provide it as a “perk,” not a necessity. Still, when you look at our unproductive Congress taking a month-long break, you have to wonder why everyone doesn’t get his or her perk. Or, at least a week, two weeks, or something. You can’t do your best without a rest. How can we possibly compete with our European Union colleagues when we treat our workers with less concern?

LOW From page 11A benefits will help immeasurably to advance to cause of economic empowerment of our families and communities throughout the nation. Social media should exemplify social change and equal justice. Racial disparity and economic inequality contradicts the very notion of “social media.” Racial segregation was wrong years ago and it is still wrong, evil and sinful today. In an article in the August 5, 2014 edition of Crains headlined, “Jesse Jackson has Silicon Valley’s number,” The civil rights leader concluded, “The country’s moving toward tech — it’s the fastest-growing, most lucrative opportunity….. The biggest growth engine is social media…. We’re being left behind. The deplorable statistics in tech had to be confronted. Now is the time to challenge the industry.” Yes, now is the time! Let’s organize and mobilize. Let’s raise more public awareness about these inequalities. Silicon Valley should not be permitted to remain being a valley of prosperous inequity. Let’s challenge and transform Silicon Valley into a valley where “Justice will roll down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.” Benjamin F.
