Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR I want to remind EO’s readership that beginning with Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal (1936) which addressed unemployment issues of the Great Depression with PWA (Public Works Authority; followed by the nomination and election of J.F.Kennedy, who became the first Catholic President; followed by L.B. Johnson’s Civil Rights legislation; Bill Clinton’s Administration which resulted in a national surplus; and then the election of Barack Hussein Obama as the first African American President of the u.S.A.....the historic selection of Hillary Clinton as the first American woman as the Presidential candidate of the Democratic Party....These are all progressive public policy actions with outcomes that produced the greatest good for the greatest number. It is essential the local Chicano-Latino-Hispanic millennial youth understand that in this nation “change you can believe in” happens without violence and bloodshed. Your personal vote is your voice and Latinos must begin to vote in order to ‘belong’ as Americans of Mexican heritage. Now understand that Mexicans have been involved in the development of this American Democracy for the past 450 years. Now then, personal freedom and civil liberties are earned by your behavior and actions. Our American civil liberties and access to earning a good living (accompanied by wealth) is the outcome of our socio-economic democratic system which has been untracked recently by those who favor owning all the wealth and having all that power.

If local Latinos want to have more access, then they must vote to elect current Member of Congress Loretta Sanchez as their next U.S. Senator. Her legislative skills already exist with her 20 years of legislative work in the House of Representatives as CA-District 49 representative. Go to <California Secretary of State> to validate that Loretta Sanchez received 943,002 votes (18.5%) and Kamala Harris 2,051,048 votes (40.3%) which ensures a runoff election will happen prior to the Presidential Elections, Tuesday, November 8, 2016. Imagine Loretta Sanchez being elected especially when 4,000,000 Latino citizens who have not registered to vote were to do that (per Alex Padilla, CA Secretary of State). They could elect the first Latina U.S. Senator who will provide ‘direct representation; and who is from our own CA community. All Latino citizens must vote to earn ‘direct representation’. Go to <sccvote.org> to validate for yourself that District 27, Central Committee will have Juan Quinones, Aimee Escobar, Maya Esparza, Omar Torres, Claudia Shope, and Alberto Hernandez as its six Central Committee (DEM) members. It is at this committee, commission, and school board level that local residents may become engaged, involved, and active while learning how community public policy issues are defined and assigned to the correct jurisdiction. EO encourages millennial Latinos to begin at this level of public community service. This Primary Election (06.07.2016) reveals that local Latino citizens who did not vote must understand their vote were missed. The U.S. Congressional District 17 contest between Ro Khanna and incumbent Mike Honda could be decided by their ‘swing votes’. Ro Khana received 26,010 votes (38.13%); Mike Honda received 26,356 (38.63%) votes. Honda has

been an effective Silicon Valley advocate in the U.S. House of Representatives. He worked with Loretta Sanchez to bring millions of federal transportation dollars to BART and VTA. He has made no deals with Wall Street; nor accepted any ‘DARK MONEY’. As a Japanese-American, Mike Honda experienced living in WWII ‘protective encampments’; As a former teacher, he has supported funding education & job training programs. Ro Khana has none of that experience nor Congressional seniority.

San Jose District 10 City Council incumbent Johnny Khamis received 11,211 votes (75.98%) to win his re-election outright. Congratulations.

nation a service by focusing upon the domestic needs which impact the millennials and middle class the most. Income and wealth disparities must be addressed.

In the CA State Senator, District 15 contest, incumbent Jim Beall: 65,437 votes (49.25%); Nora Campos: 34,950 votes (26.30%). This outcome will require a runoff election unless after Registrar of Voter’s staff tally the uncounted votes, CA Senator Jim Beall exceeds 50% plus one. In that scenario, Beall is ‘re-elected to his next term’.

Keep in mind that the City of San Jose is a $5.4 Billion public service enterprise in which we are all stakeholders and shareholders because our property taxes, sales taxes, and fees provide the revenues which underwrite all civic services. San Jose City Council seats 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 were on the ballot.

At the national (federal government) level, Hillary Clinton (DEM) and Donald Trump (REP) have become their party’s presumptive Presidential candidate. Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders must unify the Democratic Party so as to ensure that the White House (the Presidency) continues having Democratic Party leadership. Sanders is to be commended for his campaign strategy which was based upon the needs of the millennial youth of this nation. Establishment Democratic machine must accept the need to work out issues of income inequity; infrastructural repairs and upgrades; comprehensive immigration reform; comprehensive tax reform; Wall Street must accept monitoring and regulation;education needs to become more rigorous; etc. Sanders did the

The Republican Party’s Presidential candidate, Donald Trump, continues to reveal how unsuited he is to the resolution of any challenges this nation faces. He continues to be the “Ugly American Bully” who demonstrates with his racism, bias, bigotry and prejudice that he is simply not suited to become the leader of this nation and the free world. He denies that his words and antics did not encourage the type of undisciplined behavior exhibited after that Trump Rally in San Jose, CA. Physical attacks on members of the opposition do not resolve anything. In this nation, “change you can believe in” occurs via our disciplined votes. Non-violent behavior is powerful when it is backed by lawful, ethical, and moral behavior which demonstrates to the ‘racist bigots’ that our community is very civilized.

The tally for SJ Council, District 2 is Steve Brown: 3976 votes (32,52%) and Sergio Jimenez: 3924 votes (32.10%). Only 52 votes separated these two candidates. Absent Latino voters were missed here. In SJ District 4, Council member Manh Nguyen received 6,247 votes (50.53%); his competitor Lan Diep got 6,115 votes (49.47%). So Manh Nguyen is re-elected since he received more than 50% of the votes cast. (Only 132 votes separated the winner from his competitor.) Similarly, in SJ District 6 contest, Devone ‘Dev’ Joan Davis: 3238 votes (20.63%); Helen K. Chapman: 3094 votes (19.90%). A runoff election is required. SJ District 8 Council candidate Sylvia Arenas: 3121 votes (22.29%); Jimmy Nguyen received 3464 votes (24.64%). This calls for another runoff election. Absentee Latino voters have another opportunity here to elect another ‘direct Latino community representative!

Latino voters must understand that their votes do count and do elect an individual who is from your own ethnic community willing to represent your interests (as well as those of the entire community) at the negotiation/conference table. Democracy works best when we all vote.

EDUCATION

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

Por Nathaniel Sillin

¿Tiene sentido volver a los estudios cuando estamos en la mitad de nuestra carrera laboral? Lo esencial es evaluar el riesgo financiero de esta movida. En los últimos años, la cantidad de estadounidenses de mayor edad que han vuelto a estudiar en escuelas de media jornada o nocturnas ha superado a los de edad universitaria típica. Según el Centro Nacional de Estadísticas de Educación, el 40 por ciento de los alumnos de pregrado y posgrado son mayores de 25 años—para 2020, esta cifra aumentará al 43 por ciento. Proliferan estadísticas sobre cuánto más valioso es tener un diploma de pregrado universitario que simplemente uno de escuela secundaria—un estudio reciente de Pew Research Analysis informó que los graduados universitarios de entre 25 y 32 años que trabajan jornada completa ganan aproximadamente $17.500 más por año que los empleados adultos del mismo grupo etario que solo tienen un título secundario. Esto explica por qué es tan atractiva la universidad para los más jóvenes. Pero, para los mayores de 40, las recompensas no están tan claras. Por eso es tan importante hacer un análisis exhaustivo antes de volver a los estudios o inscribirse en algún otro programa de capacitación, y más aún cuando uno no puede pagar la matrícula de su bolsillo.

JUNE 10-16, 2016

Estas son algunas cosas a tener en cuenta antes de volver a las aulas a mitad o fines de la carrera: Tener un título no significa tener trabajo. Esto podría parecer obvio dada la suerte que están teniendo los más jóvenes que se gradúan por primera vez en ser contratados. Sin embargo, a pesar de que algunos indicadores laborales están buscando trabajadores de mayor edad, eso no quiere decir que la mayor experiencia o un título o certificación de mayor grado permitan conseguir un mejor empleo o sueldo de inmediato o por más tiempo. Empiece por hacer un examen exhaustivo de las condiciones laborales y los pronósticos de contratación (http://www. bls.gov/oes/) en su área laboral. Si decide cambiar por completo de carrera, investigue además en las redes y observe el trabajo en acción, si es posible. En general, es importante saber si los empleadores en ese campo en particular están realmente interesados en contratar a trabajadores de más edad y si suelen hacerlo. Evalúe sus finanzas a conciencia. Con lo riesgosas que son las deudas universitarias actualmente—el préstamo del estudiante promedio es de unos $30.000—gastar dinero en estudio siendo mayor es una propuesta mucho más riesgosa que cuando se es joven. Piense que ese dinero que destina a su educación tardía es dinero que podría destinar a su retiro, a la educación de su hijo, a las necesidades de algún familiar mayor, a las deudas o a alguna emergencia financiera. En otras palabras, es una inversión que realmente tiene que darle ganancias. Además, recuerde que las deudas universitarias no se eximen en caso de quiebra. Por eso es importante asesorarse con un experto financiero y fiscal antes de comprometerse a gastar los ahorros o a pedir un préstamo universitario para volver a estudiar. Determine cuánto tiempo planea trabajar realmente. Una encuesta de Gallup de 2013 indicó que tres de cada cuatro trabajadores estadounidenses planea seguir trabajando después de los 65 años, la edad de retiro, pero ninguno sabe realmente cuánto tiempo más podrá trabajar por cuestiones de salud y otros factores. ¿Podrá recuperar el costo de su educación de acuerdo a la cantidad de años que espera trabajar? Busque la capacitación más asequible posible. Si un campo laboral en particular tiende a recibir más trabajadores de su edad, ¿cuánto tendrá que invertir en capacitación para conseguir el trabajo correcto? ¿Necesitará un título de maestría o un certificado de educación para ser especialista en un campo determinado? ¿Hay empleadores que acepten los cursos en línea gratuitos o de bajo costo ofrecidos por colegios y universidades conocidas? La Iniciativa para Mayores de 50 de la Asociación Americana de Colegios Comunitarios es una fuente muy útil de opciones de capacitación de bajo costo en colegios comunitarios de todo el país. También puede consultar con las principales asociaciones empresariales de su rubro para ver qué curso de capacitación es más popular en el campo y cuánto cuesta obtener el certificado. En resumen: La educación es beneficiosa a cualquier edad, pero los trabajadores que ya están promediando o finalizando su carrera deberían evaluar sus finanzas e investigar cuidadosamente los programas de capacitación antes de volver a las aulas.

JUNE 10-16, 2016

Por Nathaniel Sillin Se puede estar estresado por muchos motivos –la carrera, los estudios, la familia, las relaciones, la salud –y especialmente, el dinero. La Asociación de Psicología Americana (APA) informó recientemente que el dinero sigue siendo la principal causa de estrés para el 72 por ciento de los estadounidenses. De hecho, el dinero es la causa de estrés que ha liderado las encuestas de la APA desde su debut en 2007, el año anterior a la crisis financiera que llevó a la economía estadounidense a su peor caída desde la Gran Depresión.

¿Tiene usted estrés financiero? Estos son los 10 signos principales del estrés financiero y formas de combatirlo. 1. Se pregunta si su trabajo es seguro. Aunque la economía ha mejorado en los últimos años, los empleadores continúan recortando y reasignando a sus empleados y haciendo ajustes ocasionales en los sueldos y beneficios. Si ha detectado cambios en otros departamentos o las noticias sugieren un cambio en su industria, esté preparado. Plan de acción: cree su propio fondo de emergencia para cubrir seis meses o más de gastos diarios, actualice su currículum vitae y organícese para una potencial búsqueda laboral. 2. No tiene dinero para ahorrar o invertir. Si le cuesta cubrir sus gastos básicos y no tiene ahorros ni inversiones, es hora de revisar seriamente en qué está gastando su dinero. Plan de acción: el primer paso es hacer un presupuesto básico para registrar cada centavo que gasta. Identifique los gastos extra que puede recortar y destine más dinero a los ahorros y al pago de deudas. 3. Tiene desacuerdos con su cónyuge o pareja con respecto al dinero. Un estudio realizado por la Universidad de Kansas en 2013 reveló que las discusiones por dinero son el principal indicador de un futuro divorcio. Plan de acción: compartan la información sobre todas las deudas y problemas legales e intercambien sus respectivos informes y calificaciones crediticias para intentar resolver los problemas financieros juntos. 4. Se atrasa en el pago de sus cuentas. Los pagos atrasados pueden dañar mucho su calificación crediticia (http://www.myfico. com). Plan de acción: ármese un calendario físico o digital para hacer un seguimiento de todos los vencimientos y haga un presupuesto para destinar más dinero al pago de las deudas y, eventualmente, a los ahorros.

5. Cuenta con algún beneficio inesperado. Esperar recibir una bonificación, una herencia o incluso ganar la lotería para aliviar las presiones financieras indica que tiene una tendencia a la negación financiera. Plan de acción: si los esfuerzos que está haciendo por ajustarse al presupuesto, ahorrar o cancelar deudas no están funcionando, considere consultar con un asesor financiero profesional para ver su realidad. 6. Utiliza su préstamo hipotecario como una caja registradora. Los préstamos o líneas de crédito hipotecarias pueden ser una buena solución, con deducción de intereses, para cubrir diferentes necesidades importantes, pero ante la caída del mercado inmobiliario podría perder su patrimonio. Plan de acción: refinancie su préstamo, si puede, o deje de usar la línea de crédito hasta que pueda pagar el saldo. 7. Está pensando en retirar dinero de sus ahorros jubilatorios para solucionar problemas financieros. Piénselo dos veces antes de sacar un préstamo contra estos fondos. Interrumpir sus planes de retiro, especialmente después de los 50 años, puede tener importantes consecuencias financieras. Plan de acción: vuelva a presupuestar sus finanzas y busque asesoramiento profesional que lo ayude a encontrar otra solución. 8. Se le están acumulando cargos por pago fuera de término y giro en descubierto. Según Pew Charitable Trusts, el cargo promedio por giro en descubierto es de $35; los cargos por pago de la tarjeta de crédito fuera de término son similares. Plan de acción: programe el pago de sus facturas y opte por recibir facturas electrónicas cuando sea posible para ahorrar tiempo en el correo. Si tiene que pagar cargos adicionales por pago fuera de término, pregunte a su banco o compañía de tarjeta de crédito si le pueden condonar el cargo; muchos suelen eliminar un cargo por año. 9.Está atrasado en el pago de los préstamos de estudio. Es difícil que se le condonen, cancelen o den de baja (eliminen) los préstamos de estudio (https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/) si no puede pagarlos. Los pagos atrasados también pueden dañar su calificación crediticia. Plan de acción: busque asesoramiento financiero profesional apuntado específicamente a las deudas del tipo de préstamo de estudio que tenga y resuelva pagar las cuentas en término. 10. Sus cuentas están desorganizadas. Es difícil alcanzar las metas financieras importantes cuando no se puede hacer un verdadero seguimiento de las finanzas. Plan de acción: busque el consejo de un amigo de

confianza o asesor financiero profesional sobre cómo organizar mejor sus cuentas y si le podría convenir administrar sus cuentas electrónicamente. En resumen: Reducir su estrés financiero es una decisión saludable. Revise sus hábi-

tos financieros y busque ayuda profesional, si lo necesita, para aliviar esta carga. Nathaniel Sillin dirige los programas de educación financiera de Visa. Para seguir a Habilidades Financieras Prácticas en Twitter: www.twitter.com/PracticalMoney.

Board of Supervisors Adopts Resolution Affirming Commitment to Protecting Central American Refugees Santa Clara County CALIFORNIA This week, the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution affirming its support of Central American refugee children and mothers as news surfaced in early May of a 30-day “surge” in immigrations raids. The resolution reiterates the County’s commitment to protecting Central American refugees and urges President Obama to designate Guatemala for Temporary Protected Status (TPS), and to extend the designations of El Salvador and Honduras before they expire later this year. The resolution coincides with the Board’s adoption of a proclamation declaring June as Immigrant Heritage Month. “Our County has and will always be a welcoming place for all immigrants including

the Central American children and women refugees affected by these senseless raids. I urge President Obama to heed our County’s call and protect them from returning to a place where many await unfortunate circumstances,” said President Dave Cortese, County of Santa Clara Board of Supervisors. “This lack of compassion and understanding is not in our American spirit as a nation of immigrants.” Earlier in May, news outlets reported that U.S. immigration officials were planning a month-long series of raids of immigrants who entered the country illegally, and minors who entered the country without a guardian and have now turned 18 years of age. The 30day “surge” is the second wave of immigration raids that began in January over a two-day period, which resulted in the detention of 121 people, mostly women and children from Central America. County supervisors continue to voice their concern about these actions and to renew their commitment to make Santa Clara County a welcoming home to all newcomers.

Ir al parque es una tradición familiar para David y Rose Jáquez, habiéndose criado ambos en el Sur de la Bahía y ahora crían a sus tres hijos en San José. “Mis primeros recuerdos son de hacer senderismo con mis tíos cuando era niño. Ahora llevo a mis hijos. Es una experiencia unificadora”, dice David, que es investigador en la oficina del Defensor Público del Condado de Santa Clara. Rose, que no trabaja fuera de casa y que se ocupa de sus hijos a tiempo completo, dice que cuando empezaron a buscar una casa para comprarse, la condición más importante era que estuviera a una distancia que se pudiera ir al Parque de Alum Rock a pie. Una día muy temprano por la mañana, la familia Jáquez y sus parientes se reunieron para hacer una excursión de dos horas desde Alum Rock, asentado en las verdes faldas del Mt. Diablo, hasta la Sierra Vista Open Space Preserve, con sus vistas panorámicas que se asoman al majestuoso Valle de Santa Clara. Frecuentemente durante estas caminatas divisan venados, ratoneros de cola roja, cuervos, coyotes, en ocasiones culebreras europeas o águilas calvas - e incluso linces rojos y zorros grises. “Nunca se sabe lo que se va a encontrar”, dice Rose.

Tan solo un viaje de 20 minutos en coche desde el centro de San José, Alum Rock y Sierra Vista brindan un refugio del Silicon Valley, que está cada vez más congestionado, no sólo para la vida silvestre sino que también para residentes urbanos de todas las edades. “Yo recibí premios por el futbol además de mis primeros puntos en este parque”, recuerda David. “Ahora mi hija da largos paseos, mis hijos andan en bici, hacemos excursiones familiares hasta Sierra Vista. Creamos recuerdos”. “La gente lleva vidas estresantes, pero mira a tu alrededor”, agrega David, señalando las colinas y los robles y el amplio valle. “Dicen que si no puedes llegar a la naturaleza, saca una foto de pantalla en tu teléfono. - pero tenemos estos dos parques aquí mismo en nuestro jardín trasero”. Para escenas de la familia Jáquez y su visita al parque Alum Rock y la Sierra Vista Open Space Preserve, no se pierda el próximo segmento de Kia OpenRoad con Doug McConnell, el programa semanal en el canal 11 de NBC en el área de la Bahía, el domingo, 12 de junio a las 6:30 p.m., o visite la página web de OpenRoad en nbcbayarea.com/openroad.

On June 2nd Donald Trump hosted a Rally in downtown San Jose which drew much more attention because of the subsequent hostile and at times violent response of certain protestors that gathered outside than of what the presidential candidate had said. The San José Police Department, Mayor Sam Liccardo, the protestors and Donald Trump all had their fare share of blame for the incidents. Since the incidents last week, four men have been arrested in connection with their acts of violence, and one for attacking a police officer. Out of the estimated thousands that showed

up to the protest, it was a small percentage that acted out physically towards Trump supporters, but with that handful of people the negative media spread regarding the protest in general. Shortly after the rally was over, social media began to buzz with the hashtags #SanJose and #TrumpRally, among others. This was in response to the photos, videos and live streams that were revealing the extent of the protests and of the violence. Mayor Liccardo had previous commitments in the East Coast during this time, so he was not physically able to address the city until he returned. He did however, provide the following statement: “San Jose police officers performed admirably and professionally to contain acts of violence and protect individuals’ rights to assemble, protest and express their political views.  While it’s a sad statement about our political discourse that Mr. Trump has focused on stirring antagonism instead of offering real solutions to our nation’s challenges, there is absolutely no place for violence against people who are simply exercising their rights to participate in the political process.” After backlash from many on how the violence was handled by the police, which was that those upset believed that the SJPD did not intervene attacks and just stood idly, Mayor Liccardo released a supplemental statement. Mayor Liccardo is a known supporter of Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton, so in this follow up he stepped back on his statements on Donald Trump

and focused more on the follow up the SJPD would do on finding all those responsible for their actions. “I condemn all acts of violence committed against people who exercise their rights to free speech and assembly, regardless of their political views.   Nothing that Donald Trump says absolves those individuals of responsibility for their violent conduct last night,” said Liccardo. He did however, still add some words towards the Donald Trump camp within this statement, saying, “I think we all need to acknowledge that each of us - presidential candidates, local leaders, and individual citizens - have a responsibility for our own speech.  It is regrettable that this has become a pattern for cities hosting Mr. Trump across the nation.” Gabriel M. Nuanez of San José, was in the middle of Thursday’s protest taking photos among other youth, families and a diverse group of people. He says, “most attending the protest were young adults and teenagers. It’s good that we get involved and support what we believe in; however, the amount of violence was on a whole different level.” During the protests Nuanez took photos of the general groups that gathered, documenting the protest up until it turned ugly. “As I walked in the crowds with my camera, I witnessed several violent events. Hats labeled “Make America Great Again” were being burned, Trump supporters were being threatened and chased away, and many of the police officers were being harassed. Not only were protesters causing

a stir-up, but also some Trump supporters caused some tension.” In the social media sphere, depending on where you looked, Twitter had supporters of Trump claiming “illegals” where causing mayhem, and that this exemplified why Trump’s views on deportation and immigration reform were warranted. Others laughed at the short videos of a Trump supporter being chased around for a brief moment, then being tackled before running out of view of the camera. “I specifically remember being right in the mix of an argument and seeing this tall, muscular gentleman with his hands up in a fist formation, getting ready to fight. Right before he got in this position, I see one young girl hit the floor hard, and another girl crying. The girl that hit the floor got punched by this man, and I overhear the girl crying say she got punched by him too. Man, what have we gotten into?” Nuanez adds. The actions of a few individuals mucks up the intentions of protestors to peacefully gather at these rallies, which is their right as American citizens, at the same time these incidents are seemingly happening within the world of Donald Trump’s pursuit of candidacy, and thus far no violence of this caliber has occurred at any of the other candidate’s rallies. Nuanez ends the recollection of his experience by saying, “this was the first time I’ve ever been in an event or situation like this. Boy, was it an experience. I just hope everyone got home safe and no one else got hurt.”

Kaira Portillo Special to El Observador

Washington D.C. The Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Claudia Ruiz Massieu, delivered a speech on June 6th in Washington, D.C. before a conference of leaders of the Jewish community in the United States. In her remarks, she highlighted the strategic value of Mexico to the United States and its society, as well as the daily contributions of Mexican and Mexican-American communities to the economy, prosperity, well-being, and security of the country. During the closing session of the Annual Meeting of the American Jewish Committee (AJC), Secretary Ruiz Massieu underscored the close friendship forged between the Jewish community and Mexico inside and outside of the United States, sustained by shared solidarity, prosperity, and their backing of one another in times of adversity. The Jewish and Mexican diasporas are two of the most important of their kind in the United States and their common future is built each day in this country. Secretary Ruiz Massieu referred to the tradition of open doors to foreign immigrants which Mexico and the United States have shared since the past century and underscored how, as any neighbors, they have learned to work together and respect one another. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a constant job that sometimes presents

us with challenges, but it also unites us in terms of our values and common interests which has given us the strength we need to forge ahead and overcome fear and suspicion. Today, our border is a source of prosperity and opportunities for both our countries,â&#x20AC;? she said.

When Donald Trump came to California for the GOP convention, diverse protesters were ready, blocking the entrance to the Burlingame Hilton Hotel with creative signs, chants, and human chain barriers arms linked to each other. Many Latinos were out with flags representing El Salvador, Nicaragua, Mexico. Their main message?

As we get closer to the elections, it is surreal to see how much support Trump has. But the one positive thing to come out of the circuslike political debates is that more people are waking up to our reality: racism is still a bigger challenge than most people thought!

Whether Latinos are U.S. citizens, legal residents or undocumented, there is a more fundamental issue that should be the focus of political debates instead of scapegoating immigrants in such trite ways.

only 6% towards education and 6% towards healthcare, the U.S. is simultaneously creating trauma for wartorn families while failing at developing healthy, intelligent young adults (www.nationalpriorities.org).

The real issue is the exaggerated amount of money the U.S. spends on the military and financial aid given to foreign wars. When countries become wartorn, of course there will be people fleeing that country to search for a better quality of life for their children and family. And when 54% of 1.11 trillion dollars is invested in the military, compared to

Trump only wants to continue this vicious dysfunctional cycle. Divide and conquer tactics is a band aid solution to a historical wound that has become infected and is in need of some serious cross cultural collective healing and long term care. Hopefully, enough people will realize this fact before it is too late.

This year, the Annual Meeting of the AJC celebrated 110 years of work in the United States. Secretary Ruiz Massieu shared the podium with U.S. National Security Advisor Susan Rice, and with Federica Mogherini, the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy. Ruiz Massieu mentioned that each of them were an example of the way in which societies are strengthened by empowering women and granting them access to positions of influence as decision makers. Also in the audience were the 50 heads of the Mexican Consular Network in the United States, who are participating in a meeting in Washington to relaunch the work their consular representations do to promote the empowerment of the Mexican community in the United States. The Foreign Secretary called on everyone to fight discrimination, not just in this country but throughout the world, one of the commitments of global responsibility that Mexico assumes to defend humanitarian causes and the dignity of all persons.

Santa Clara County CALIFORNIA The County of Santa Clara Board of Supervisors announced Tuesday June 7th the appointment of Deputy County Executive James Williams as Interim County Counsel. He will step into the role August 1 following the retirement of County Counsel Orry Korb. Williams has served as Deputy County Executive since January 2013. “James’ experience in the County Counsel’s Office and the County Executive’s Office make him an excellent choice for interim County Counsel,” said Board President Dave Cortese. “I have every confidence that he will effectively face the challenges ahead of us.”     Williams began his career with the County of Santa Clara in 2010 as a Social Justice & Impact Litigation Fellow in the Office of the County Counsel.  His im-

pressive work landed him a role as Deputy County Counsel where, among other duties, he advised the County’s Finance Agency and its Auditor-Controller, Treasurer, and Tax Collector functions. He also helped lead the County’s successful litigation strategy on redevelopment dissolution. He delivered the oral argument before the California Supreme Court on behalf of the County as an Intervener in California Redevelopment Association v. Matosantos, where the County’s successful argument resulted in the dissolution of the state’s 400+ redevelopment agencies on February 1, 2012.   Williams was appointed Deputy County Executive following his role as Special Assistant to the County Executive, where he focused on the dissolution of the redevelopment agencies.  As Deputy County Executive, Williams provides oversight and executive leadership management of several County departments, including Procurement, County Fire, County Communications, and Risk Management. The departments’ recommended Fiscal Year 2017 budgets exceed $263 million. He is also responsible for policy oversight for over $2 billion in contracting annually. He supervises several functions in the County Executive’s Office, including the Office of Emergency Services, the Office of Countywide Contracting Management, Redevelopment Dissolution,

JUNE 10-16, 2016

and the Bail and Release Project. “I am honored to be selected as the Board of Supervisors’ interim chief legal advisor,” Williams said. “I look forward to working with the talented attorneys in the County Counsel’s Office to provide exceptional legal advice to the Board and the County.”   Williams graduated from Stanford Law School in June 2010.  In 2006, he graduated summa cum laude from Princeton University, where he received the Pyne Prize,

Princeton’s highest undergraduate distinction. He is a Harry S. Truman Scholar and Paul & Daisy Soros Fellow.  In Spring 2012, Williams was named a “Lawyer on the Fast Track” by The Recorder, recognizing California attorneys in their first 10 years of practice “whose early accomplishments indicate they will be tomorrow’s top lawyers and leaders.”   Williams and his wife, Mary Anne, live in San Jose with their three children: Jesse, age 6; Boman, age 4; and Susanna, age 2.

Conservation groups sent 105,000 petition signatures to the federal government asking that more waters be designated as critical habitat for the Southern Resident orca. (NOAA)

Suzanne Potter CALIFORNIA NEWS SERVICE MONTEREY, Calif. - On Monday, a coalition of conservation groups sent more than 105,000 signatures to the National Marine Fisheries Service asking the agency to speed up a plan to expand habitat protections for killer whales. The Southern Resident orca spend their summers in protected waters near Puget

Sound in Washington state, but in winter they roam down the Oregon and California coasts as far south as Monterey. Giulia Good Stefani, staff attorney for Marine Mammal Protection Project for the Natural Resources Defense Council, says time is of the essence, because this whale species is on the brink of extinction. “Historically data indicate there were a couple of hun-

dred, but now we have 83 whales, which is approximately the same number of whales that we had when they were listed as endangered 11 years ago,” she says. “So, the population has completely plateaued and has not recovered.” The groups want the feds to declare 9,000 miles of coastal waters as critical habitat as soon as possible, not in 2017 or 2018 as planned. Good Stefani says the critical habitat designation would mean that certain activities in federal waters would be reevaluated and require an environmental assessment. “There’s noise from shipping, there’s Navy sonar training and testing, and there’s fishing activities,” she says. “And all of those have impacts, direct and indirect, on the whales.” The Southern Resident orca stick close to the shore because they feed exclusively on fish, especially salmon that migrate out of coastal rivers. So, the conservation groups say they’d also like to see more inland protections for the salmon.

Roddy Scheer & Doug Moss EARTHTALK After enduring years of criticism from animal rights activists, Feld Entertainment, the parent company of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey, announced in March 2015 that it would phase out the use of endangered Asian elephants in its circus performances within three years. Then, less than a year later, the company said it was expediting the process and would be retiring the 11 elephants still travelling for circus shows even earlier—by May 2016. These last working circus pachyderms are now able to join 31 of their predecessors at the Center for Elephant Conservation, a 200-acre elephant refuge in central Florida created by Ringling Bros. in 1995 to care for, conserve, breed and study Asian elephants. “There’s been somewhat of a mood shift among our consumers,” says Alana Feld, the company’s executive vice president. “A lot of people aren’t comfortable with us touring with our elephants.” No doubt, part of the reason for that mood shift has been the advocacy work of groups like the American Society for

the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)—each which has campaigned tirelessly to halt the use of Asian elephants in America’s iconic circus act. Testimonials from former circus employees and photographic evidence provided by these groups helped convince the U.S. Department of Agriculture to fine Ringling Bros. $270,000 in 2011 for violations of the Animal Welfare Act. Some of the documented abuses include Ringling Bros. elephants getting whipped and beaten by trainers and “yanked by heavy, sharp steeltipped bull hooks behind the scenes, prior to performing.” A PETA investigator who travelled with Ringling Bros. for several months documented many of the circus’ elephants swaying and rocking continuously—“neurotic and abnormal behavior typically seen in animals who are suffering from extreme stress, frustration, and boredom.” Meanwhile, baby elephants were “torn away from their mothers and subjected to violent training sessions [to] learn how to perform tricks.” PETA adds that at least 30 elephants, including four babies, have died pre-

maturely from accidents or disease while travelling with Ringling Bros. since 1992. While circus fans will certainly miss the elephants’ presence in the ring heralding the opening of each show and performing synchronized dance routines, they’ll be glad to know that these lovable and endangered animals will no longer suffer abuse or be exploited for their entertainment value. That said, Ringling Bros. does continue to use lions, tigers, zebras, llamas, goats, horses, camels and dogs in its circus performances—a fact that animal rights activists remain unhappy about. For its part, PETA wants Ringling Bros. to pull all of its animals from their performances immediately. “Tigers and lions spend most of their lives in cramped transport cages,” the group reports, adding that these and other animals travelling with the circus “are denied everything that is natural and important to them.” CONTACTS: Ringling Bros., www.ringling.com; Center for Elephant Conservation, www.ringlingelephantcenter.com; PETA, www.peta.org; HSUS, www. hsus.org; ASPCA, www.aspca.org.

Immigration Corner:

When a person who is not a citizen of the United States is placed into removal proceedings the wheels of uncertainty begin to spin. Family members are often left in a state of panic, confusion, depression and financial despair and don’t know who to turn to for help. Getting information or simply trying to locate a family member who has been taken into immigration custody can become time consuming and frustrating.

Once removal proceedings begin, the hearing process generally consist of a bond hearing, master calendar hearing and individual or merits hearing. At a bond hearing, the immigration judge will decide whether a detained individual should be released on bond while removal proceedings are pending. At the master calendar hearing, the immigrant will admit or deny the allegations in the charging document called the Notice to Appear, concede or deny removability and inform the immigration judge of the immigration relief that the immigrant will be applying for to avoid being removed from the United States.

What happens after ICE pickups an undocumented or legal immigrant? Generally speaking, the undocumented or legal immigrant is processed for removal proceedings at a local ICE office. They are fingerprinted, photographed, and served with several documents regarding the removal process. After that, they are taken to a jail, detention, or correctional facility to be housed during the course of removal proceedings unless they are released from custody on a bond or other intensive monitoring arrangement set up by ICE.

At the individual or merits hearing, the immigration judge will determine if the immigrant gets to stay in the United States or will have to leave after hearing all the evidence presented by the attorney for the immigrant and the U.S. government’s attorney. At the hearing, the immigrant’s attorney will present documents, take testimony on direct examination from the immigrant, the immigrant’s family members and any expert witnesses. The government attorney will also be given an opportunity to cross-exam any witnesses presented by the immigrant’s attorney.

If an undocumented immigrant has been previously removed and reentered the USA illegally, then chances are that ICE will seek to remove the person in accordance with the previous removal or deportation order. This process is referred to as Reinstatement of Removal and undocumented immigrants in this situation will be removed without the opportunity of appearing before an immigration judge unless they can first convince an asylum officer that they have a reasonable fear of returning to their country.

The immigration judge will then decide whether to grant the immigrant’s relief, or order removal. Adverse decisions against an immigrant can be appealed to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) and then through the federal court system.

An undocumented immigrant or lawful permanent resident in removal proceedings who wants to stay in the United States has a right to fight their removal and be represented in court by an immigration attorney at their own expense.

For more information please feel free to contact Raul Ray, Attorney at Law, at Law Offices of Raul Ray, (408)279-5793, 1671 The Alameda, Suite 200, San Jose, CA 95126. Email: raulray@deportationattorney.com

If you or someone you know is facing removal from the USA, contact an experienced immigration attorney or reputable nonprofit agency providing legal services for immigrants in removal proceedings.

ICE doesn’t just remove undocumented immigrants who enter the country illegally or commit crimes. They go after people who overstay their visas or accepts unauthorized employment as well as lawful permanent residents who commit certain crimes or are absent from the USA for a long period of time.

SanJos

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is an agency under the United States Department of Homeland Security. Other than the FBI, ICE is the largest law enforcement organization in the United States and enforces both immigration and customs laws.

Contacting an experienced immigration lawyer as soon as possible is very important because they can evaluate the case to determine whether immigration relief is available and the chances of getting that relief granted by an immigration judge. They can also determine whether a person who is detained can be released on bond and whether the case, if located in another city or state can be moved to an immigration court closer to the person’s home.

“The Conjuring” stars Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson reunite with Wan for another chilling chapter from the Warren case files In 1970, the Warrens battled a malevolent presence that permeated a remote farmhouse in Harrisville, Rhode Island—a case brought to the screen in 2013 in Wan’s hugely successful “The Conjuring.” Then came the most highly publicized case of their careers, Amityville, which would nearly destroy them. This summer, writer/director/producer James Wan seeks to terrify moviegoers once again with his depiction of another highly publicized

case involving the real-life horrors experienced by paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren with “The Conjuring 2.” It’s late 1977 when, with the effects of Long Island still haunting them, the Warrens come out of a self-imposed sabbatical and travel to northern London to take on a vile demonic entity that has taken root in the home of the Hodgson family, in the populous borough of Enfield. What is thought by many to be a hoax will become the most documented case in paranormal history. “Everything Ed and Lorraine have been through since we met them in the first film has been leading up to Enfield,” Wan states. “Out of the repertoire of cases they investigated over

Returning in their roles as Lorraine and Ed are Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson. “It was really joyful for me to step into Lorraine Warren’s Mary Janes and sprint another 20 miles,” Farmiga smiles. “It requires you to bring your A+ game, but James really knows our ins and outs and how to reach us, and I think Patrick and I were even more confident and relaxed this time around.” “I believe in the story and the world of the Warrens,” Wan says, “and the opportunity to expand on their world with Vera and Patrick and bring this particular story to audiences was super exciting for me.” Wilson affirms, “There was not one part of this story that felt like we were retreading old ground; we were pushing ourselves to do something different, while still giving the audience the elements that made the first film work, and that was really important to me.” Producer Peter Safran felt that the Enfield scenario provided a natural successor to the story in the first film, due in part to its being “one of the best-known examples of documented supernatural possession, but also because the circumstances would allow us to make sure the film had a dissimilar look and feel from the

Were these things really happening? Police were involved, reporters, photographers...it got to be a bit of a circus after awhile, with the amount of people that were going in there, talking about it. There was even a ventriloquist checking out whether or not the young girl was throwing her voice.” Further outlining the contrast from the first film, Wan says, “‘The Conjuring’ geography was intimate, a farmhouse in the middle of nowhere, and this one takes place in council housing in a big city, so the neighbors are close by, there’s traffic. Just by the nature of the setting the people around it are more exposed to what’s happening in this house.” But perhaps the most frightening peculiarity seen in “The Conjuring 2” is that this time, the family aren’t the only ones the possessing entity focuses on...whatever it is, it attacks the Warrens directly, too, causing both Ed and Lorraine to fear for each other as well as for the Hodgsons.

According to a press release from the city “Pittsburg, California is burning up with Sharks Fever” and that “City officials and business owners, tongues firmly planted in-cheek, expressed outrage that their City’s name is associated with the Penguins, the San Jose Sharks’ opponent in the National Hockey League Championship Finals.”

“The San Jose Sharks are the most exciting team in the National Hockey League and I’m excited to watch them hoist the Stanley Cup,” said Pittsburg, Calif. Mayor Ben Johnson. “We are behind our Sharks, and we’re flying the Team banner on City Hall. We’d rather be known as Teal Town than be associated with those Penguins.”

Natalie Cooper, owner of Lumpy’s Diner, a popular breakfast spot, said “the Burns Breakfast Burrito is a hit and our Power Play Pancakes are Sharktastic!”

Local businesses are caught up in the excitement for the Stanley Cup Finals and have added banners to their storefronts and specials to their menus.

“We lost two close ones on the road, the Shark Tank is where we’ll even the series back up!” said Kyle Schoenthaler, die hard Shark fan and General Manager of the Tred Shed.

I recently informed Jerry Colangelo of this decision.” “My previous experiences with USA Basketball have been incredibly rewarding, educational and enjoyable, which made this an extremely difficult decision for me and my family. However, due to several factors – including recent ankle and knee injuries – I believe this is the best decision for me at this stage of my career. It’s an incredible honor to represent your country and wear ‘USA’ on your chest, but my primary basketball-related objective this summer needs to focus on my body and getting ready for the 2016-17 NBA season.”

Shelly Palmer About two months ago, a long-standing business acquaintance of mine learned that my company had created a series of data literacy training courses. He called me and asked if we offered them for individuals (we didn’t; at the time we only offered our programs to companies). When I asked him why he was interested in data literacy, he said, “Data is all anyone is talking about. I don’t know anything about it at all. I thought you guys would be a good place to start.” In some cases, this would have been a totally reasonable exchange – a mid-level executive seeking continuing professional education. But in this case, the man’s title was SVP Marketing. I say “was” because he just updated his LinkedIn profile. Not surprisingly, after three years at his present job, this 18-year corporate marketing veteran is looking for work. Sadly, he is unemployable. While he’s under 40 and looks like a Millennial, he has been “inside” too long and lacks the skills to be competitive in this job market.

So, in his honor, here are six things he could have done to future-proof his job: 1 – Don’t Think of Your Job as a Job

The U.S. Bureau of Labor reports that Baby Boomers are averaging 11.7 jobs from age 18 to 48. That’s an average of 2.5 years per job. (Millennials are likely to switch jobs every two years or even more often.) At those time scales, you should not think of your job as a job, you should think of it as a project. Which means not only should you think of your boss as a client, you should think of yourself as a consultant engaged to solve a specific problem. If you think of your full-time job as just one of your projects (you can and should have other projects, as we shall soon discuss), you are going to be well on your way to future-proofing your income.

2 – Inject Yourself into the Process

Be a student of the world you live in. What’s new? What’s next for your business? Are you in a growth industry? Is your company likely to be the best in its class? If you got promoted, could you do your boss’s job? Would you be better than your boss because you have more competitive, more productive skills? The best way to answer these questions is to inject yourself into the process. Pretend you run the whole company. What would you read every day? Whom would you speak with? What would you discuss? Seek out people who do what you want to be doing and get into their groups. Social networking tools are perfect for this. Use them.

3 – Do Side Projects

If you work for a big company in a specific job doing specific stuff, your skills are atrophying. Every day you are on the inside, you are getting weaker and people on the outside are getting stronger. The best way to keep your skills sharp is to do side projects. If your employment agreement prohibits moonlighting or you’re not comfortable working directly in your area for other companies, just find a side project that will help you hone your skills. It could be doing a specific function for a charity organization. Avocational training can also have huge vocational benefits.

4 – Get Famous

You may not get “Kimye” famous, but fame is a relative term. You need to be famous in your world. Get permission from your company and start to blog. Create a body of knowledge that sets you apart from your peers as an expert in your area. Post a minimum of once weekly. The quality of your writing is more important than the quantity of posts. Take the most common problems faced by the people who might hire you and demonstrate (through your writing) that you are the best person to help solve them. Then, promote your work using social networking tools. This is also a job. Treat it like one. Importantly, this is a career-long commitment. There is nothing more pathetic than an abandoned webpage with your name on it.

5 – Network Relentlessly

Going to a few business events or even specific networking events and collecting business cards is not networking. Networking is a job in and of itself. It requires you to carefully pick the events you will attend. Research the speakers and the probable attendees and target people you want to meet at the event. When you meet the people you are there to meet, try to find some common ground or a subject (because you have done your research) that you can use in your follow-up. After you’ve established contact, you will correspond or meet at appropriate intervals and do your best to build a business relationship. If you don’t think you’ll do this with a new contact, throw away their business card – there was no reason to ask for it. This takes an incredible amount of time and energy. It’s not a second job; it “is” your job. Relentless networking is an exceptional way to future-proof your income.

6 – Plan Your Career

Do you know the daily objective/goal of almost every SVP Marketing? It is to become the EVP Marketing, or EVP of anything, anywhere. You may disagree with this statement. Great. Set your own objective. But have an objective! What is your next job and what will the résumés of the competitors for that job look like? Do you need “digital” on your résumé? Do you need “data science” or some other crossover job that bridges the gap between the traditional way your job function has been done and the way it is done (or going to be done) at your next job? Consultants can be opportunistic predators; employees cannot. Which means, for the most part, employees are prey – simply waiting for a re-org or layoff or a change in strategic direction to send them packing. You may argue that I’m painting with too broad of a brush, but the trend is clear. We are quickly transitioning to a world where “jobs” as they have been previously defined no longer exist. So redefine your “job” description and add some future-proofing tools to your skills. They will help you translate the value of your intellectual property into wealth.
