tion production adds potable water in large volumes needed using existing sustainable ‘green technology’.

HILBERT MORALES

This year let’s go beyond giving GOD thanks for all that we have in our family, friends, this community, nation, the world and its universe. We must realize that ‘Divine Providence’ has favored USA with abundant resources. We must conserve and use/reuse them all, when possible, like we now recycle potable water to extend its use so this community has ample supplies of this essential life-supporting liquid. And if our elected officials enact policies which devote available resources, it is possible to evaluate desalinization technology to convert sea water obtainable at the Alviso Slough; use solar and wind generated electricity to power the reverse osmosis process which would result in an additional source of potable water. This drinking water source would be independent of the weather being experienced today. Let’s be thankful that this additional source of potable water is available to our

community....we just have to prepare the facilities, personnel, and install the technology to begin to benefit from our knowledge, which is already available. Why do this? Well, California’s population continues to grow. When 50 million residents live in California during 2050 current naturally supplied water will not be sufficient. What do we not need to be thankful for? One project which Governor Brown keeps supporting, is the construction of two concrete conduits under the San Joaquin/Sacramento River Delta to be used to divert Sacramento River water to the Los Angeles basin. The Delta already provides water which is conveyed southward. Use those delta project’ funds to support the construction of desalination facilities along the Pacific Ocean coast. Those facilities will provide California with additional potable water needed now and in the future. Understand that desaliniza-

Americans are also not thankful for the misuse of large amounts of money, aided by that U.S. Supreme Court ‘Citizens United’ decision which permits the ultrawealthy and corporations to thwart the established democratic decision making processes which try to do what is right for the greatest number of our nation’s residents. The ‘dark money’ is being used to paralyze the U.S. Congress with the result that too many essential government supported and maintained activities are inadequate. Comprehensive reforms are needed in the areas of our infrastructure; education and job training access; immigration, and income taxes. The current status of taxes favors those who are already very wealthy. We cannot be thankful for those who have ownership of American resources. They must remember that they had nothing to do with the natural processes which created crude oil, coal, iron ores, limestone, and excellent farmlands. All these resources must be utilized to provide our nation’s residents with the basic essentials of life: shelter, food, potable water, clothing, and safety. The challenge of fair distribution of essential goods

DURING THIS HOLIDAY SEASON, WHICH BEGINS WITH THANKSGIVING DAY, LET US ALL PAUSE TO COUNTY OUR BLESSINGS, WE, AT EO, PAUSE TO GIVE THANKS TO ALL OF YOU WHO SUPPORT THIS NEWS COMMUNICATIONS ENTERPRISE, FOR THE CIVIL RIGHTS AND FREEDOM OF THIS COMMUNITY AND NATION IN WHICH WE LIVE TOGETHER, FOR THE FRIENDLY RELATIONSHIPS AND CONFIDENCES WE HAVE SHARED WITH EACH OTHER,  WHICH GIVE US THE MUTUAL OPPORTUNITY TO COMMUNICATE AND ACHIEVE,  FOR ALL OF THESE MEANINGFUL RELATIONSHIPS WE, AT EL OBSERVADOR, ARE DEEPLY THANKFUL EO WISHES ALL A HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON

and services has not been adequately resolved because so many are impoverished by the present ‘for-profit’ capitalistic decision making system. Ownership of resources must be couples with stewardship. Mahatma Gandhi once said, “This world we all reside in has all that all people need, except for the greedy.” Many Americans are not thankful for the ideologies which proclaim that ‘big government’ is the problem. The reality is that corporations and the very wealthy are not paying their fair share of taxes which permit government to provide for those who are handicapped, impoverished, and unable to earn a living. Those who invest in automation, robotics, and systems which eliminate jobs must begin to give some thought to development of a new paradigm which redistributes resources needed by residents. All those low paying jobs created since 1975 have created a very large number of residents who live from paycheck to paycheck, despite education and training levels. Today there are only two ways for the very wealthy to redistribute resources: a) government taxes and b) charitable altruism. Local non-profit organizations, such as Sacred Heart Community Center and “Loaves & Fishes” do their best to service the homeless

and needy. Supportive local organizations such as ‘Second Harvest Food Bank” will need to receive more contributions to meet the needs of the impoverished. All of us cannot be thankful for the impact of those who have extreme ideologies. The Capitalists want no government despite the need for monitoring to prevent abusive excesses. Extreme conservationists need to reveal their plans. Saying ‘NO’ to all negotiable proposals is what has gridlocked the democratic decision-making process. Extreme ideologies, especially the extremely radical Muslim Jihadists, who are wiling to kill anyone who disagrees with them, does nothing more than begin to destroy our civilization, its societies, its commerce, and its peaceful governance institutions. Let’s begin to stop being passive and stoic because when enough of those who have no power today, begin to revolt by speaking up; by insisting that others do what is right and respectful, then we will have much more to be thankful for. Divine Providence supports those who make the effort to do what is right. Let’s be thankful that we live in a nation where the weak can speak up and become the force that changes things for the better.

White House and Department of Labor Launch $100 Million TechHire Grant Competition Including $50 Million for Young Americans

its TechHire initiative to expand pathways into tech jobs to those who have historically been left out of Baltimore’s economy and those who are underrepresented in tech fields.

Last week the U.S. Chief Technology Officer Megan Smith, Cabinet Secretary and Chair of the My Brother’s Keeper Task Force Broderick Johnson, and Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez, will travel to Baltimore, Maryland, to announce new steps to advance the President’s TechHire initiative and expand opportunities for young Americans to get trained and placed into well-paying tech jobs. Baltimore is launching

America has about 5.5 million open jobs today. Over half a million job openings are in information technology fields such as software development, network administration, and cybersecurity— rapidly growing sectors with many more jobs than just a decade ago. Whether in manufacturing, advertising, retail or banking, the average salary in a job that requires information technology (IT) skills is 50 percent higher than the

average private-sector American job. Businesses have added 13.5 million jobs over 68 straight months of private-sector job growth, extending the longest streak on record. While this progress is significant, employers are in critical need of tech talent and too many Americans lack the skills and experience to access these well-paying jobs. Over six million young Americans between the ages of 16 and 24 are out of school and work, which represents a significant untapped resource of productivity and talent for the country. That is why in March 2015, President Obama launched

TechHire, a bold multi-sector effort and call to action to empower Americans with the skills they need, through universities and community colleges, but also nontraditional approaches like “coding bootcamps” and high-quality online courses that can rapidly train workers for a wellpaying job, often in just a few months. Since then, 35 cities, states, and rural areas with more than 500 employer partners in need of this workforce have begun working together to find new ways to recruit and place applicants based on their actual skills and to create more fast-track tech training opportunities. The President has set a goal of reaching more than 40 communities by the end of 2015. The Administration announced new steps to ensure that Americans, including youth and young adults ages 17-29, individuals with disabilities, individuals with limited English proficiency, and individuals with criminal records, get access including: $100 Million TechHire Grant Competition. Earlier this year, the President announced that as a part of the TechHire initiative, the Administration would commit $100 million to expanding accelerated tech training. Today, the Department of Labor (DOL) is releasing the application for those grants. They will award $100 million or more in H-1B

funds, including at least $50 million specifically dedicated to supporting young Americans, ages 17-29, with barriers to training and employment, to partnerships that can rapidly train and connect workers to well-paying, highgrowth jobs across industries such as information technology, health care, and advanced manufacturing. Interested applicants may apply to this opportunity here. $20 Million Training to Work Grant Competition. Building off the President’s announcement from earlier this month of new actions to promote rehabilitation and reintegration for the formerly incarcerated, today the Administration is also announcing the launch of the fourth round of DOL’s Training to Work grant competition that will award approximately 14 grants to expand access to tech jobs and other high growth occupations for adults ages 18 and older returning from correctional facilities. Interested applicants may apply to this opportunity here. 14 Cities and States Have Made New Commitments to Expand Access to Tech Training and Jobs Since the Launch. Since the launch of TechHire earlier this year, the President has announced that 14 new communities including Baltimore have responded to the TechHire initiative with commitments to work with employer partners on new ways to recruit and place ap-

plicants based on their skills, create more accelerated tech training opportunities, and invest in innovative placement programs to connect trained workers with entrepreneurial opportunities and well-paying jobs. Today, the City of Baltimore is launching its TechHire initiative with an emphasis on including those who have historically been left out of Baltimore’s economy and those who are underrepresented in tech fields.

The President’s Agenda to Create Pathways to the Middle-Class through HighQuality, Job-Driven Training. TechHire is part of the President’s broader agenda to invest in job-driven training for young Americans and others to get into better, well-paying jobs.

mar en consideración el tipo de lugar y trabajo.

Algunas personas me han preguntado consejos y sugerencias para prepararse mejor al momento de una entrevista de trabajo. Les comparto algunos que conozco por experiencia propia y me han venido muy bien, espero les ayude.

•No hable de más, espere a que le pregunten y conteste lo necesario. Tampoco interrumpa a su entrevistador.

•La primera tarea antes de ir a la entrevista de trabajo es buscar más detalles sobre la empresa a la que has solicitado empleo, como su función principal, cuánto tiempo llevan en el mercado, logros y objetivos etc. Esto es importante porque te ayuda a tener una idea de lo que te pueden preguntar. •Lleva copias adicionales de tu currículo, siempre lleva un par de copias adicionales en caso de que las necesites. •Si tienes tarjeta de presentación, lleva unas cuantas para que se la dejes a la persona. También puedes hacerlas en tu impresora personal. •Practica las respuestas a las preguntas básicas que podrían hacerse durante una entrevista. Es cierto que podrían estar algunas a las cuales no te sientas preparado, la realidad es que ya existe un proceso diseñado especialmente para las entrevistas con un cuestionario básico de acuerdo a la empresa. •En cuanto a la vestimenta y apariencia, es importante to-

•Una vez terminada la entrevista, aclare sus dudas y haga preguntas, es bueno preguntar cuando piensan tomar una decisión sobre la misma y si cómo le avisarían de ser seleccionado o no. •Siempre despídase cordialmente, dele la mano firmemente a la persona y sonría. Diga gracias por el tiempo prestado y déjele saber una vez más que estará esperando una notificación favorable sobre su entrevista. •Este último dato me ha funcionado de maravilla: Pida una tarjeta de presentación a su entrevistador, si no tiene, entonces anote su email y su número de teléfono.   Al día siguiente envié una carta de agradecimiento por la entrevista. Espero que estos consejos le sean prácticos y le ayuden a maximizar sus oportunidades de conseguir una buena entrevista. Recuerde que la primera impresión cuenta mucho, así que llegue con seguridad y demuéstrelo durante todo el proceso, confíe en usted.

The American Psychological Association (APA) recently reported that money remains the number one stressor for 72 percent of Americans. In fact, money has led the APA’s annual stress survey since its debut in 2007, the year before the financial crash that took the U.S. economy into its worst slump since the Great Depression. Are you financially stressed? Here are 10 major signs of financial stress and ways to take action. You wonder if your job is secure. Even though the economy has improved in recent years, employers still cut and reassign workers and make occasional adjustments in pay and benefits. If you’ve spotted changes in other departments or news accounts suggest a shift in your industry, start thinking ahead. Action Plan: Build up your emergency fund to cover six months or more of basic living expenses, update your resume and get organized for a potential job search. There’s no money to save or invest. If meeting basic expenses is a struggle and you have no savings or investments at all, it’s time for a serious review of where your money is going. Action plan: Making a basic budget is the first step to tracking every penny spent. Figure out extras you can cut and set more aside for savings and debt payoff. You have disagreements with a spouse or partner about money. A 2013 University of Kansas study noted that arguments about money are the top predictor of divorce. Action plan: Share information about all debt and legal issues and exchange respective credit reports and credit score data

as you plan to solve all money problems together. You are paying bills late. Late payments can hurt your credit score (http://www.myfico. com). Action plan: Set up a physical or digital calendar to keep track of payment dates and budget in order to put more money toward debt and eventually savings. You imagine a windfall. Waiting for a bonus, an inheritance or even a winning lotto ticket to ease your financial stress indicates you have a tendency toward financial denial. Action plan: If your current efforts at budgeting, saving money or paying off debt aren’t working, consider a reality check with a qualified financial advisor.

Late and overdraft fees are piling up. According to the Pew Charitable Trusts, the average bank overdraft fee is $35; credit card late fees are similar. Action plan: Schedule bill payments and opt for online billing when possible to save time on mailing. If you have to pay additional late fees, ask your bank or credit card company if it might forgive the fee; many will remove one fee a year. You’re late on student loan payments. It is difficult to have student loans (https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/) forgiven, cancelled or discharged (eliminated) in bankruptcy if you can’t pay. Paying late can also hurt

your credit score. Action Plan: Seek qualified financial advice that specifically addresses the type of student debt you have and resolve to pay bills on time. Your accounts are disorganized. It’s difficult to reach important financial goals when you really can’t track your finances. Action plan: Get some advice from a trusted friend or a qualified financial professional about how to best organize your accounts and whether online account management may be right for you. Bottom line: Reducing your financial stress is a healthy decision. Review your money habits and get qualified help if necessary to lessen this burden.

You use your home equity like a cash register. Home equity loans or lines of credit can provide an interest-deductible solution for a variety of important needs, but a down housing market can wipe out your equity. Action plan: Either refinance if you qualify or stop using the line entirely until you can pay down the balance. You’re considering drawing from retirement funds to solve money problems. Think twice before taking out loans against these funds. Interrupting your retirement planning, particularly over the age of 50, can have significant financial consequences. Action plan: Re-budget your finances and seek qualified advice to help you find another solution.

If you experience joint discomfort, you’re not alone. No matter how active you are, joint problems are one of the most common reasons for doctor’s visits and will affect most of us as we age. Registered Dietitian & Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist Marie Spano says there is a lot you can do to help yourself, beginning with a healthy diet. “What you eat can have a big impact on joint inflammation, cartilage breakdown and bone formation,” says Spano. “There are many foods that not only help, but are also delicious and easy to find.” At the top of Spano’s joint-friendly grocery list are fatty fish, including salmon, herring and anchovies. They contain the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, which have anti-inflammatory effects. Another way to feed your joints is to take a high-quality glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate supplement. Together, these have been shown to limit the activity of enzymes which can break down healthy cartilage. “To help support

your joint health, I recommend CosaminDS, which is the most researched glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate supplement on the market. It contains high-quality ingredients and a specific formulation shown in peer-reviewed studies to be effective for joint health management.” Spano cautions that not all supplements are created equally. “Be an informed consumer. Look for supplements like Cosamin that are backed by clinical research and certified by an independent third-party organization.” A balanced exercise routine also helps by maintaining joint mobility and assisting with weight control. Obesity can lead to a greater risk of joint issues. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, two in three people who are obese may develop symptomatic knee osteoarthritis. Even a loss of one or two pounds may feel more like 10 pounds to your joints.

STATEPOINT Don’t give your morning routine short shrift; it may be more important than you think. If your routine seems well...routine, it may be time to put some zest in the everyday steps you take to look and feel your best. Here, four lifestyle bloggers offer tips for doing just that.

Get Fresh Discover what it is that you need to walk out your door alert and with confidence. For some, it’s a jolt of caffeine, for others it’s smelling great after a morning shower. “What do I love more than knowing I smell good? Being told I smell good,” says Jenny Ingram, the family and lifestyle blogger behind Jenny on the Spot. “Starting out the day clean is like starting out with a fresh canvas.” She recommends layering scents for your own signature fragrance, starting with your body wash.

Change It Up PREPARACIÓN 10 mins COCCIÓN 5 horas PORCIÓNES 8-10 personas

Your routine should work for you, but that doesn’t mean it can’t change from day to day, based on your mood or the aspect of your personality that feels most empowered that day. “A women’s beauty routine is as unique as she is,” says Angela Peters of the blog Hairspray and High-

heels, who was recently challenged by Herbal Essences to try out each of the scents in their body wash collection as part of their #ScentGoals campaign.

Give Yourself Time Can’t resist the snooze button? You may be doing yourself a disservice. Feeling rushed in the morning can set the vibe for the entire day and lower your overall productivity. “I like to wake up early and take things slow so I can focus on everything I need to get done that day,” says Oliva Rink of the Lovely Little Style blog. “I turn on my go-to Spotify playlist, light my favorite candle and take time putting on my makeup, doing my hair and going through emails.”

Stay Energized Fragrance can be powerful and the right scent can recharge and refresh your mood. “Keeping cool cleansers on rotation in my shower will get me through the dead of winter and keep me energized and smelling sensational,” says lifestyle and fitness blogger Christine Bibbo Herr of NYC Pretty. If you are “not a morning person,” it may be time to give your routine a makeover. Take time to uncover the personal habits that make you look good, feel great and smell phenomenal.

velopment issues. The center has its own audiology center, where they manage all of their equipment. It includes a soundproof booth, and calibrated equipment to check all the hearing aids and cochlear implants. A new state of the art multisensory environment room, affectionately titled the “bubble room” by the children, boasts auditory, tactile, vestibular, and movement stimulation tools. The cochlear implants that many of the children at WCC have are small rounded devices that are implanted in the children’s head, close to the ear. Within the implant are two nodes that transmit data into the brain as electrical impulses. “They’re wearing a small computer,” says the center’s

Executive Director Kathleen Sussman. “The external hardware is something that they upgrade all the time. (It) fits into a computer and audiologists can read all the different maps of each of these.” Each implant is custom set for each child and a safety mechanism prevents loud sounds from hurting. The data collected from these devices allows speech therapists to work with the audiologists, who keeps track of all of the children’s responses to sounds. The importance of reaching deaf or hard of hearing children at this age is stressed by Jessica Chang Greenman, an Alumni Parent and current Development Coordinator at WCC.

“It’s (Deafness) not something that can be reversed, they can’t be taught to speak later in the same efficacy. We need to capture the years in its infancy, when it has its most impact. That’s what we try to do here. It’s a very intense program that we have here, but there’s a reason we do it. Our children are graduating earlier and earlier.” The parents, many who are not being charged for the services at WCC, come from as far as Vallejo and Gilroy. A mix of grants and fundraising allows parents to afford these services. Amazingly, not a single family has ever been turned away for lack of funds. “We have subsidized, we have raised funds for the families. That’s why a lot of the

families are willing to chip in any way they can. We have probably have some of the best teachers that specialize in deaf or hard of hearing children and speech therapists that work with implanted children,” says Greenman. BabyTalk Patricia Gómez, the sole bilingual Speech-Language Pathologist with the BabyTalk program at WCC, strives to connect with her families and ultimately have these families help their own child’s development. Gómez was the first therapist with the BabyTalk program, and now 4 years later more than 30 babies participate. Gómez’s own nephew went through the services at WCC and ultimately influenced her decision to change her major as an undergrad. “I think I was destined to do this but that’s how I came and I fell in love with what they were doing at the center.” BabyTalk’s iPad-streamed therapy sessions with parents and children allow for mobility, and the connection to Pathologists like Gómez, at an instants notice. The 45-minute to an hour session a week enables flexibility for these families. Additionally, the iPad and prepaid internet connection also come at no cost to families. Through her teletherapy


Using an example of a previously recorded parent, using her iPads’ Face Time program to conduct a speech therapy session with Gómez, it’s easy to see how this system benefits the schedule of the parents. “We had just had been talking for weeks on how to use your daily routines to make sure we have language input.” The parent, Floriana, is an immigrant from Oaxaca, her first language is Triqui, a language native to Oaxaca. The videos provide valuable insight and information on teletherapy sessions, and are used to gauge participants needs and progress. These interactions are organic as can be through technology. The feedback and multiple support channels that WCC and the its BabyTalk program prove that teletherapy is an ingenious tool to help children learn to communicate and speak. “That’s really the beauty of this program. We have a team to get them the help they need,” says Gómez, referring to the ability to con-

There’s limited resources out there sometimes for this population and I feel like I have to be there for them.”

nect parents to social workers, doctors and surgeons that are affiliated with the center. With some parents who are migrant farm workers, the therapy times can be challenging although the center provides letters to the employers to allow even one day of parent/ child therapy sessions. “It’s a huge financial burden for these families but they know how important it is to do this at this age.” In terms of the BabyTalk efficacy, Gómez definitely champions it, as long as the parents are willing to put in the effort with their child. “To see the results that I’m getting, I really see the parent as the client. We’re doing this for the child but its a lot of transitions and a lot of themselves, their own journey and really understanding that they have a lot of power and they have so much to give.” Growing Up, Listening More Once the children are old enough they can transition to the Preschool and Kindergarten classrooms at WCC, which focus on expanding how children communicate and interact with the world. Greenman says that much like glasses, “we educate our children here to just realize that (an implant and hearing aid) is just simply another piece of technology that allows you to hear, access another sense.”

Greenman notices that in such a short time, from when her own daughter went and graduated through the WCC, technology has gotten closer to equalizing the opportunities that deaf or hard of hearing children have. “It’s becoming more commonplace because of the success rate we’ve had but in some ways its almost ironic that because of the success we’ve had most of society doesn’t realize they exist because they’re speaking beautifully, integrating into society, (becoming) productive members of society and so forth. It’s a very interesting phenomenon that’s going on right now. So we are very proud of that. It’s this little place right here.”

Luis Vargas, a resident of South San Jose, was devastated to hear that his daughter Sophia was born deaf in both ears almost 5 years ago. “It’s hard to describe the feeling, it just felt like the worst news you can receive. It was our first daughter, and for nine whole months you had basically planned this life of hope for her and goals for her and the fact that they said that, it just erased everything and put us on a whole different path.”

“This school focused on that, on having the kids learn to speak and communicate. We decided right there and then that that’s what we wanted,” says Vargas. “We felt that speech was very important, it’s the way we communicate, it;s the foundation

we wanted to hear. And now, she says it all the time. There’s no price on that.”

So from that point on, for 4 years (Sophia will turn 5 in March) Yesenia took Sophia to WCC while Vargas, the sole provider, worked 60+ hours a week with one day dedicated to going up to Redwood City from San Jose to help out at the center, and watch his daughter blossom with communication skills.

Looking back and thinking about how the Weingarten Children’s Center has affected his family’s lives, Vargas thinks back to the moment at the hospital when he found out about Sophia’s condition; the plans and goals he and his wife had for their daughter. “We’re back on track. We have a whole set of goals, she can do anything now. She’s just a girl with an implant, just like any kid with glasses.”

“She did have a chance at getting implanted and someday be able to look at us and say ‘I love you mom’ or ‘I love you dad’, and that’s the only thing

SANTA CLARA COUNTY, CALIF.--  This past Friday the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara and the Santa Clara County Social Services Agency joined together in celebration of National Adoption Day, by helping to place 19 children into 16 permanent homes. The goal of the event is to increase public awareness of the need for adoptive parents, to educate would-be parents about the adoptive process, and to celebrate the local families who have opened their lives to children in need of permanent homes.   “The finalizing of a child’s adoption is a profound moment that forever changes the lives of a family and the community,” said Presiding Judge, Hon. Risë Jones Pichon. “As we begin this holiday season, sixteen newly formed families will have something to be immeasurably thankful for this

lives more meaningful and fulfilling.” According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, there are approximately 402,378 children in the foster care system with more than 100,000 of them awaiting forever homes.  These children enter foster care as a result of abuse, neglect and/or abandonment. The average child has to wait nearly four years for an adoptive family. Nearly 13 percent (13,217 children) spend 5 years or more waiting for a family.  The average age of children waiting for an adoptive family is 8 years old. In the past 53 years, Santa Clara County has processed more

than 8,000 adoptions. Last year, the County’s Department of Family and Children’s Services finalized 145 adoptions. “This event inspires all of us to promote and support adoption by celebrating the creation of these new families,” said Santa Clara County Social Services Agency Director Robert Menicocci. “As noted in this year’s national campaign, ‘We Never Outgrow the Need for Family.’ The adoptions that we are honoring today provide these children the safe, loving, nurturing, accepting and consistent families that all children deserve.”

Suzanne Potter CALIFORNIA NEWS SERVICE SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Californians planning for retirement and wondering what the best age may be to start receiving Social Security may want to wait a few additional years, according to experts, who say waiting can pay off in a big way. Americans are able to begin receiving Social Security benefits at 62, but those benefits will be permanently reduced for each year they are taken before age 66. Kristen Arnold, income security policy analyst at the National Academy for Social Insurance, says a majority of se-

niors in the Golden State are shortchanging themselves. “More than 66 percent of beneficiaries in California have their monthly benefits reduced due to taking Social Security early,” she says. “People are leaving money on the table.” Of course, many simply can’t afford to wait because of poor health, a job loss or lack of adequate savings, in which case Arnold says they should start claiming benefits. But those who can wait until age 66 receive their full benefits, indefinitely - and those who can afford to hold off until age 70 will see a substantial jump in benefits. Arnold says the monthly check can be worth up to 76

percent more than it would have been had they taken the money at age 62. “If you’re working, you don’t have to take Social Security,” she says. “You can wait and, for each year you wait, your monthly benefits will increase by eight percent. And that monthly increase in benefits lasts for as long as you live.” Arnold adds that Californians shouldn’t take benefits early out of fear that Social Security might run out of money. It is fully funded for the next 20 years, and 75 percent funded after that. The National Academy for Social Insurance offers an online toolkit to help older Americans make the Social Security decision.

Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR SJPD Chief Larry Esquivel was introduced by SJPD Deputy Chief Eddie Garcia as the ‘guest speaker’ for the La Raza Roundtable monthly meeting of November 20, 2015 held at ConXion to Community (formerly CTC), 749 Story Road, San Jose, CA 95122. Deputy Chief Eddie Garcia summarized years of personal friendship and professional association with Chief Esquivel, whose family resides in East San Jose. The Chief is a local resident who will leave the SJPD after 30 years of service, to become Police Chief of Tracy, California, a nearby San Joaquin Valley community only one hour away. Garcia told the audience, estimated at 50 community members, that as a teenager, Larry Esquivel’s passion was ‘to be a cop who got the bad guys’. He thanked Chief Esquivel for being an excellent mentor, for providing a comprehensive ‘play book’ which made his job as Deputy Police Chief much easier, and for being a very good friend and role model who has prepared him for the opportunity of being ‘interim SJPD Chief’. Chief Larry Esquivel related in summary from several beliefs which he had developed as a youth from the ‘East Side Hood’. He had parents who, by their life-styles conveyed a commitment to working hard while providing the essential support. Larry was able to be a volunteer, to take advantage of ‘rides with police’ which familiarized him with their public safety vocation. He is committed to doing what is possible to provide mentors, role models, and opportunities to San Jose’s

youth, especially those from the East Side San Jose Community where he grew up and his family still resides. He became a teenage parent who attended night schools to acquire his college education after graduation from high school and does have a Master’s Degree. He climbed the police career ladder once he was hired and successfully completed the required Police Academy training. His approach was “I want to be the best police Officer I can be so I can have opportunities to make desired changes.” Earlier today the Police Academy had a graduation of a new group of police rookies who will continue to undergo ‘on the job’ training. As a progressive, Esquivel guided the development of policies and procedures for the body-worn cameras (BWC) which the SJPD will soon deploy. His attitude was “This is a coming technology which we will need, so let’s not resist it; rather, let’s be in on its acceptance so that we, the police, may influence how this video technology will be used. As a member of the San Jose Independent Police Auditor’s Community Advisory Committee over the past six years, I can testify to the on-going deliberations which happened between the SJ-IPA and Chief Esquivel, an excellent negotiator who gave as much as he got. Chief Esquivel presided over a police force which numbered about 760 sworn officers during a time when the normal complement of 1,500 had been depleted by contract and retirement funding issuesl used by many to resign and go elsewhere. Creative retention efforts and redeployment of remaining police force were instrumental in maintaining community safety and security.

LRRT Chair Victor Garza thanked Chief Esquivel for changing the policies used at vehicle check points. Undocumented (unlicensed) individual’s vehicles were no longer impounded. A time period was allowed which enabled a licensed driver to recover the vehicle. Hilbert Morales thanked Chief Esquivel for extending an interview by EO’s journalism intern (Cinthia Rodriquez, Fresno). Mariachi Mundial de Juan Reyes performed during the celebration that followed. Food and refreshments were provided by Jose Melendez’s Liquid Refreshments & Lounge.

What’s the latest in cuttingedge, hyper-efficient solar cells? Are we really moving beyond huge photovoltaic panels anytime soon?-- Michael Doug Moss & Roddy Scheer EARTHTALK Many people still consider environmentalists’ favorite black panels as the cutting edge of renewable energy. However, the burgeoning solar industry has spent the last four decades refining these original photovoltaic panels, giving way to an entirely new generation of solar technology. Most of us could hardly recognize some of the new solar collectors. Researchers at Michigan State University specifically responded to the aesthetic critics of solar panels by creating transparent solar cells. Well, not totally transparent-they actually have thin strips of traditional solar panels to convert the infrared light being reflected by the entire panel. This technology could effectively turn any sheet of glass into a solar energy producer, from the windows of your office building to the screen of your cell phone. This could spell the end for space-intensive solar plants. Currently the cells cannot convert light into electricity at efficient enough levels to be productive, but researchers hope to achieve efficiency closer to that of existing photovoltaic panels in coming years. Though less effective than older technology, the sheer scale of utility of the new model makes it a much more substantial potential energy source. Beyond the collection of solar energy, storage continues to be a problem. Modern batteries are typically inefficient and expensive, making solar energy only useful during daylight hours. Researchers at Ohio State University are working to solve this problem and recently debuted a photovoltaic panel with a built-in battery. If the new design is successful, fusing the battery and panel into one could be a game-changer. The design has already shown to make batteries 20 percent more efficient and 25 percent less expensive.

Another area of solar innovation has been ingenuity of application. Thinking outside the box has helped establish potential ways to industrialize the production of solar energy without consuming an excessive amount of acreage in the process. The Dutch have already pioneered solar roadways, in which highways are lined with solar panels. This saves clearing more land and makes use of land that is otherwise entirely unproductive. Another effort to limit land use involves constructing solar plants in the 70 percent of the planet that is covered by water. Experiments have already begun in France, England, India and California. And while seemingly far-fetched, generating solar power from space is another area being examined. Satellites could capture significantly more sunlight than earthbound panels, as they could be positioned to collect solar radiation all the time. The first proposal and tests of this idea began over 40 years ago. The challenge is to create satellites that can capture sunlight, convert it to microwave energy, and beam it back to Earth. The exciting potential of this idea has led to large-scale investment by India, China and Japan. No doubt we are only at the beginning of the age of alternative renewable energy, and the next few years and decades will be an exciting time to follow the growth of solar power from a fringe sector to a dominant player in the global energy mix.
