Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR Much public commentary has followed the sexual incident at a fraternity party on Stanford University campus last January 2015 which was recently adjudicated in Superior Court, County of Santa Clara. This ‘sexual misconduct’ case resulted in the rape conviction of a Stanford athlete who was intoxicated when he violated a young woman, also intoxicated and unconscious. Clearly the standard of ‘mutual consent’ by both parties was never agreed upon. ‘RAPE’ is defined as the act of physically forcing a woman to have sexual intercourse. This case needs to be used by the community at large as a case study which permits discussion to update relationship standards which are congruent with our ethics, morals, and religious faiths. Responsible parents may use this case to demonstrate personal safety concerns. Especially, reasons why not to attend certain parties where too much alcohol is consumed with the consequence that a few individuals loose full control of their sexual desires and drive. Acceptable civil and social behavior requires respect, caring, kindness and consideration. Rapacious predatory behavior is never acceptable. Let’s focus on the young lady (pseudo named Emily Doe) who was accompanied by her sister and a friend. Where were these two individuals when Emily Doe experienced drunken unconsciousness? Was it not their responsibility to ‘look out’ for each other? Where were those chaperones whose responsibility was to uphold acceptable standards of relationship behavior? Human sexuality requires ‘learning to stay in control of oneself ’. Girls mature earlier than boys. Both hardly ever get full instruction and factual information about deferral of their biological procreative drive.

Both boys and girls need to take time to court their partner so as to asses compatibility and reach mutual understandings after first setting limits and defining expectations. All this requires negotiations and dialogue (‘talking things over’). The most basic human drive is to reproduce (biblical ‘begets’). The ideal is to get to know your partner before being intimate with each other. Too many youth have not been fully informed about what certain basic urges lead up to and what are the outcomes of not knowing how to set limits to which both partners agree to. That requires having a frank discussion with your partner. One cannot have that discussion without first learning an acceptable vocabulary for both male and female body parts. Vulgar terminology does not encourage a full discussion of consequences. My 19 year old grand-daughter was visiting this past weekend. She is a college student home for the summer. When asked about freshman orientation, especially about sexual behavior orientation, her reply was that the content of that orientation portion was how to use those phones located all over the campus to call for help. There was no instruction about always participating in social activities as a member of a group of friends ‘who looked out for each other’. I noted that it is single (as in ‘alone’) women who are assaulted, groped, abused or violated. Boys need to learn very early that once a girl begin to have ‘her periods’. she is capable of becoming the mother of his child if the two become sexually involved. A pregnancy results in an 18 year long responsibility required to nurture and raise a child to age 18. Both boys and girls need to be told about sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s) which are transmitted from one partner to another only by sexual congress. Syphilis, herpes, warts, AIDS, gonorrhea, yeast infections; HPV (human papillomavirus which may cause cervical cancer), etc.

All STD’s have ‘sub-clinical stages’ when the infected individual shows no symptoms while being infective through direct contact. The use of condoms prevents STD transfers.

gets to register as a ‘sexual offender’ when entering a new jurisdiction... big deal! No wonder most violated women choose to suffer alone in silence.

This court case is another example of ‘double standards’ where the woman becomes the scapegoat. It took much courage for Emily Doe to convey what happened to her body, mind, and spirit in a 12 page document; to appear in court to be subjected to the traditional questioning by the defense lawyers; and to go through it all in a court setting. A female friend confided she was raped when 20 years old. The experience of her body being penetrated without her willing receptivity. Without her consent she was traumatized: body, mind & spirit. This is a physical violation for which women often do not receive therapeutic assistance or counseling. The shame and blame is mainly ascribed to the woman. It is time that males be held responsible and accountable. It happened in this case because two bicyclists intervened and held the perpetrator until campus police and paramedics arrived.

Already proposed legislation has been crafted to update the definition of RAPE. That is not enough. The entire community must learn a vocabulary which permits full understandable communication. Traditional platitudes do not do the job. New mental health & behavioral modification technology, updated knowledge of human brain physiology; new psycho-tropic medications... all this recent available knowledge about our human condition must be used to update the current lawenforcement/judicial system; sentencing alternatives and standards; etc. Jury decisions must not be set aside by a judge sympathetic to the perpetrator. In this particular Brock Turner case, equity and justice was not achieved. The community must take corrective measures and actions.

And Emily Doe has been traumatized so a normal future relationship will initiate flashbacks at inappropriate times. The male perpetrator

This case exposed many failings to society. Emily Doe’s courage revealed that a miscarriage of justice occurred here. Many made personal decisions which had consequences.

EDUCATION

NAPS Improved student achievement and higher graduation rates are not as hard to achieve as one might think. They could become a reality with one simple policy: educational choice. Robust parental choice in education is an idea that has taken root in more communities in the U.S. than ever before, and education savings accounts (ESAs) are the best mechanism to date for funding customized learning for students. These accounts allow families to completely tailor their children’s educational experience by funding students instead of physical school buildings and letting that funding follow children to any education provider of choice. This gives parents access to options that meet their children’s unique learning needs. For example, in Arizona, parents can withdraw their children from public or charter schools and 90 percent of the funds the state would have spent on them is deposited into an ESA (known in Arizona as an Empowerment Scholarship Account). Parents can then use these funds for such education-related expenses as: •private school tuition and fees; •education therapy services; •textbooks and tutoring; •online learning courses; •Advanced Placement (AP) exams, achievement tests and college admission exams; •contributions to a 529 college savings plan; •college tuition and textbooks; •individual public school classes and programs.

JUNE 17-23, 2016

The funding can go to several education providers at once, an option that could become increasingly important as online learning proliferates. This level of customization helps bring American education into the 21st century and can ensure that no child is relegated to the limited effectiveness of a monopolistic system. Parents can also “roll over” unused funds from year to year. ESAs are the only educational choice policy to date that affords consideration of “opportunity costs,” which encourage families to pursue the best education for the best value to maximize their ESA dollars. A recent study by the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice—a nonprofit and nonpartisan organization—discovered that when parents are able to choose where their children go to school, they’re happier with the entire experience. School choice also leads to increased academic achievement, graduation rates and student safety. In addition, the foundation says, educational choice options put competitive pressure on public school systems to improve and to meet the needs of students or risk losing pupils— and money. Learn MoreOnly five states currently have ESA programs. For a list of resources and more information about educational choice, visit www.edchoice.org/parents-and-educators. The more choice parents have when it comes to their children’s education, the happier they are and the better their kids learn.

San Jose CALIFORNIA As part of its commitment to support civic education and engagement, the Santa Clara County Office of Education is partnering with key community stakeholders to help students “learn, engage, and take action” to increase civic literacy. “When the focus shifted to high-stakes testing several years ago schools got away from emphasizing social sciences, but this year’s presidential election provides a great opportunity to capitalize on the heightened interest in the civic process,” said County Superintendent of Schools Jon Gundry. “We want to provide educators and students with tools and resources to help utilize critical thinking skills to build a more engaged democratic society.”   The goals include incorporating the recommendations of the California Task Force on K-12 Civic Learning and provide professional development and share best practices with educators; provide handson learning opportunities for students to participate in the upcoming November 2016 elections by coordinating age appropriate contests in multiple languages; and engage key stakeholders, including parents and community members, in the democratic process.   Partners of the initiative include the Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters, the Santa Clara County School Boards Association, the Eastside Alliance, and the County of Santa Clara. Partnerships with other local community based organizations are also being developed.   A committee from the partner organizations has been meeting since the spring to steer the initiative and develop resources to provide to

schools and stakeholders. A webpage is being developed and will be available in time for the new school year where these resources, including a toolkit for all teachers in the county, will be posted for download. Research shows that robust civic learning helps students beyond the classroom – giving them opportunities to analyze, address, and ultimately have a hand in solving complex issues that are important to them and those around them. Furthermore, research findings correlate high-quality civic learning to increased academic achievement, student engagement and reduced dropout rates.   “It is critical for each of our citizens to have a good understanding of civic education and the constitutional workings of our government,” said Joseph Di Salvo, a Santa Clara County Board of Education Trustee. “Everyone should be concerned when only 35 percent of those registered in our county voted in the June 7 primary. Through robust civic education, I believe we can help democracy thrive by deepening students’ understanding and greatly increasing those who register to vote when they turn 18 so they can participate in the electoral process.”   This initiative directly supports the goal from the Framework for California Public Schools that, by high school graduation, students will have developed the readiness for college, careers, and civic life. To act as informed voters, serve as responsible jurors, and participate in policy making decisions, students need the knowledge and skills to interpret and communicate ideas and negotiate and collaborate in ways that positively impact democratic policies, practices, and other people’s lives.   Future updates will be provided on this initiative as they are developed.

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

San Jose CALIFORNIA Developer First Street Holdings, LLC has announced that construction has started on the $100-million, first phase of the relocation of Bay 101 Casino in North San Jose. The spectacular two-story, 68,000 sq. ft. venue for Bay 101 Casino will offer not only a wide variety of table games and daily tournaments, but also feature exciting new entertainment and fine-dining options. Guests will enjoy gaming action in an environment that will continue to be smoke-free, friendly and ultra-comfortable in contrast to the cold, surreal experience offered by many Las Vegas, Tahoe or Reno casinos. The new venue will be part of Bay 101 Technology Place — an innovative, mixed-use, high-rise development that will offer people a convenient, stimulating place to work, live and play at North First Street and Highway 101, less than 3/4 of a mile from San José International Airport. “When Bay 101 was looking to relocate, we realized this was an opportunity to create something that didn’t exist in Silicon Valley — a seamlessly integrated development with office space, top-end business-class hotels, a range of dining options, and entertainment anchored by the casino,” said Tom Purtell, chief operating officer for project manager, Borelli Investment Company. “Most people have less time than ever today and to be able to stay, play and work in one location with so many options within mere steps is a compelling proposition.”

Bay 101 Technology Place Development Receives Planning Approval

for employees working in the office tower or for nearby technology companies such as Apple, Qualcomm, PayPal, eBay, Intel, Oracle, Cisco, and more. Local residents and those with business in the Bay 101 office tower will also be close to Hwys. 101 and 87 as well as I-880; public transit including VTA light rail and buses; and will be just blocks from Mineta San José International Airport.

AVISO PÚBLICO

The whole project will be tied together by tree-lined walkways connecting the office tower, parking structure, hotels, and casino — which are just steps apart. Prestigious Headquarters Location The distinctive design of the office tower is in keeping with the prestige of the project — and the status prospective businesses have earned in the marketplace. The 242,000 sq. ft. of column-free space is available to a single tenant looking for a signature location such as a corporate or regional headquarters, or can be leased to multiple tenants. Extensive use of window glass and glass-fins, aluminumwrapped exterior columns and aluminum accents will reflect beautiful valley vistas and provide a 21st century look-andfeel. A soaring entry arcade welcomes visitors, with four high-speed elevators to whisk people quickly to upper floors. Wooden decks and a stunning 7,700 sq. ft. rooftop terrace with glass railings offer expansive views of the valley plus added touches of luxury and elegance for entertaining clients. “This office tower provides the opportunity for an industry leader or a handful of businesses to establish a major presence in San Jose in one of the best locations in the Valley,” Purtell remarked. “It offers true convenience and efficiency to ensure maximum productivity, combined with the high-class appearance.”

In addition to getting construction underway on Bay 101 Casino, the tightly integrated Bay 101 Technology Place development received planning approval from the City of San Jose last week. When completed over several phases, in addition to the casino the project will include:

Casino to Open in 2017 The new Bay 101 Casino is scheduled to open in the summer of 2017. The Embassy Suites hotel is targeted for the fall of 2018, with the office tower and parking structure opening soon after that.

•9-story, 242,000 sq. ft. “Class A” office tower •8-level garage with 1,325 parking spaces •7-story Embassy Suites by Hilton hotel, with 174 rooms and a fine dining restaurant •10-story, 240-room business-class hotel planned for a future phase

In addition to Borelli Investment Company as project manager, other key members of the team are: •Barry Swenson Builder, general contractor •Kenneth Rodrigues & Partners, AIA, architect •Bridge Bank, construction financing •NorthMarq Capital, mortgage banking

Across the street, Century Towers is a brand new luxury apartment community that offers 376 apartment homes

BPT Michael Snowden solo tenía 12 años y su hermana 16, cuando la madre de ambos comenzó a presentar síntomas de Alzheimer. Aunque transcurrieron siete años hasta recibir un diagnóstico definitivo, la necesidad de asumir la responsabilidad de cuidadores en plena adolescencia afectó profundamente sus vidas. “Muy pocas personas comprendieron lo que era la enfermedad o cómo cuidar a nuestra madre”, recuerda Michael. “Ni siquiera nosotros entendimos realmente la enfermedad después del diagnóstico. Al final, mi hermana y yo tuvimos que asumir las responsabilidades de atenderla. Nuestras vidas cambiaron rápidamente”. Según las estadísticas, la cifra de estadounidenses con Alzheimer va a triplicarse en los próximos 35 años. “A menos que se haga algo para cambiar su curso, la crisis del Alzheimer seguirá impactando a los millones de estadounidenses que la padecen actualmente, así como a sus cuidadores, amigos y familiares”, asegura Ruth Drew, directora de servicios a familias e información de la Asociación del Alzheimer. “El cuidado de un enfermo puede

convertirse en una realidad para cualquier persona. En la medida que aumente el predominio de la enfermedad, más personas de todas las procedencias, estratos económicos y edades, se verán en la necesidad de ayudar a alguien aquejado por el Alzheimer en los años futuros”. Cerca del sesenta por ciento de los cuidadores son mujeres adultas, generalmente esposas o hijas del paciente con Alzheimer. Sin embargo, una cantidad creciente de adolescentes y hombres también están incorporándose a las filas de cuidadores a tiempo completo. “Enfrentar el inicio precoz del Alzheimer cuando Chris, mi esposa, estaba a mediados de sus cuarenta años fue devastador”, recuerda Mark Donham, cuya esposa falleció a consecuencia del Alzheimer en el 2011, a los 54 años. “Como no contábamos con familiares que vivieran cerca de nosotros, decidí dejar de trabajar y cuidar a Chris todo el tiempo. Tuvimos que vivir de nuestros ahorros, sabiendo que nuestro futuro financiero sería difícil”. Además de las cargas financieras, los cuidadores de personas con Alzheimer pueden enfocarse tanto en su función que olvidan su bienestar físico, mental, financiero y emocional. A propósito de lo anterior, según

el informe Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures 2016 (Datos y cifras del Alzheimer 2016) de la Asociación del Alzheimer, el 20 por ciento de los cuidadores encuestados sacrificaron su propia atención reduciendo las visitas a sus médicos. “Mi mayor desafío fue tratar de averiguar ‘cómo cuidarme a mí mismo’ mientras mi ser querido languidecía”, añade Donham, quien les da a los cuidadores el siguiente consejo: “Tomen medidas activas para cuidarse ustedes mismos y poder ser los mejores cuidadores posibles de su ser querido”. Debido a que cada vez más personas tienen que asumir el papel de cuidadores primarios, las fuentes de ayuda de la Asociación del Alzheimer son más vitales que nunca. Las filiales de la Asociación del Alzheimer en todo el país prestan servicios directos, como grupos de apoyo y sesiones informativas en las comunidades. Por ejemplo, la Línea telefónica de ayuda 24/7 (800-272-3900) con personal profesional, proporciona cada año información y asesoría a más de 300,000 personas. Como reconocimiento a la creciente diversidad de los cuidadores de pacientes con Alzheimer, la línea de ayuda también presta servicios de traducción en más de 200 idiomas. Asimismo, El Centro de Cuidadores de Pacientes con Alzheimer y Demencia , sección del sitio Web alz.org, ofrece un caudal de consejos y fuentes informativas a cuidadores para cada etapa de la enfermedad. Además, los muros de mensajes y foros en Internet, propician la comunicación entre cuidadores con otras personas que enfrentan desafíos similares para compartir información, recursos y buscar apoyo a cualquier hora del día o la noche. Un apoyo e información que, según los hermanos Snowden y Mark Donham, puede ser empoderador. “Hay que entender la enfermedad”, afirma Shanelle Snowden. “Una vez informados sobre la misma, podremos enfrentarla con más elementos, y ser capaces de cuidar mejor a nuestro ser querido”. Donham aprendió mucho de otras personas en la misma situación. “En la fase inicial de la enfermedad de Chris, pude elaborar es-

trategias para enfrentarla”, rememora Donham. “Llegué a aceptar la enfermedad, me puse en contacto con un grupo de apoyo, y me informé mejor sobre el curso de la enfermedad, y la ayuda que necesitaría para garantizar que Chris tuviese la mejor atención posible”. Donham y Snowden les ofrecen otro consejo a las personas que enfrenten la tarea de ser cuidadores de una persona que padece Alzheimer: Hay que actuar de inmediato, antes de que los síntomas se agraven. “Es preciso hacerle frente al diagnóstico, y usar las primeras etapas de la enfermedad para poner en orden las cuestiones jurídicas y financieras”, añade Donham. “Y hay que ponerse en contacto con un grupo de apoyo para no estar solo en ese camino”. El Alzheimer’s Navigator es una herramienta en línea para ayudar a quienes enfrenten la enfermedad a determinar sus necesidades y crear un plan de acción. Además de planificar para el futuro, conocer el diagnóstico a tiempo también propicia que el paciente con Alzheimer se beneficie al máximo con los tratamientos disponibles, y con la participación en estudios clínicos que contribuyan al progreso de las investigaciones para la cura del mal. Otra herramienta es Alzheimer’s Association TrialMatch, que pone en contacto a pacientes, cuidadores, voluntarios sanos y médicos con estudios actuales. “Disfruten cada instante con su ser querido”, aconseja Michael. “Creen momentos de alegría haciendo cosas aparentemente insignificantes como ver televisión juntos, escuchar su canción favorita, o incluso hasta bailar. Será algo que siempre recordarán de esa persona, en oposición a los aspectos negativos que trae consigo la enfermedad. Hay otras personas que están pasando por lo mismo. Recuerden que no es una maldición que les ha caído a ustedes o a sus seres queridos, sino algo que los convertirá en personas más fuertes”.

Suzanne Potter CALIFORNIA NEWS SERVICE VENTURA, Calif. -- California conservation advocates this week are traveling to Washington, D.C., to join a national push for passage of several wilderness protection bills. They are praising President Obama for declaring three new national monuments in the Southern California desert in February: Sand to Snow, Mojave Trails and Castle

Mountains. Now they’d like to see Congress establish wilderness protections in the central coast area and along more of the Golden State’s shores. Jack Dyer, who co-founded Topa Topa Brewing Co. in Ventura, said local consumers and business owners value the open space because it preserves their lifestyle, which includes biking, hiking and kayaking. “We’ve built our brand around those activities and we draw people in every day to come and enjoy a pint after they’ve done those,” he

said. “People are very much outdoor enthusiasts in this region, and our business fuels off that.” Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., introduced the California Coastal National Monument Expansion Act last summer to protect more than 1,100 miles of islands, rocks and geological formations along and off the California coast, but it has not come up for a vote.

PALO ALTO, CA 
At Palo Alto City Hall, Supervisor Joe Simitian, P.A.Mayor Pat Burt revealed a new effort to preserve Buena Vista Mobile Park, a low income home to about 400 individuals (who are mostly Hispanic service workers). A proposed partnership comprised of County of Santa Clara, City of Palo Alto, and the SCCo Housing Authority will attempt to preserve Buena Vista Mobile Home Park by purchasing this property using, if required, an ‘eminent domaine’ approach. SCCo and P.A. each have already committed $14.5 million each (total $29 million). The amount to to be provided by he SCCo Housing Authority is to be determined. The collective effort’s focus will be to fund, acquire, improve and preserve the Buena Vista Mobile Home Park as an ongoing source of affordable housing for its current and future residents. The Housing Authority will acquire ownership; be responsible, using a non-profit NGO/CBO contractor, for maintenance, improvements, and operations. All three parties will be voting to undertake this proposed partnership in the coming weeks (SCCo BOS: June 21, 2016; Palo Alto City Council: June 27, 2016; HA Board of Commissioners: June 28, 2016). If successful, the Housing Authority will pursue the next steps: Funding; acquisition---starting with a property appraisal/assessment; and and improve/assume operational management of the Park via an NGO/CBO non-profit firm. In announcing this proposed partnership, Supervisor Simitian said that the Housing

Authority was, “the final piece of the puzzle necessary to move forward with efforts to save the Buena Vista Park...and the eviction of its 400 Latino residents. The SCCo HA has the resources and will work with both SCCo and Palo Alto to same the Park.” Simitian recognized and thanked Dave Cortese, President, BOS, Palo Alto Mayor Pat Burt, and many other NGO’s and CBO’s who stepped up with their supportive actions. When Palo Alto approved the Park’s closure, residents were discouraged and fearful of their future.” said Erika Escalante, President, Buena Vista Residents’ Association. “We are encouraged, excited, and thankful for everyone involved for coming up with a plan to preserve this Park and help the 400 Buena Vista residents stay in Palo Alto.” It took the organized interest and effort of the general community to crystallize the voice of “We, the People” who assertively demanded that the ‘right thing be done.” Hilbert Morales recommends those local Latino citizens who have not registered to vote and prepare to vote this coming November 8, 2016. This is another case in which the voice of the people elicited the efforts to push back forces of gentrification and implement the forces of ‘community stewardship’. Democracy works when all are actively involved influencing public policy which enables doing the greatest good for the greatest number.

Dyer said he wants members of Congress to act before they adjourn in July to stop development from encroaching on these pristine areas. “There’s been numerous threats over the years that have come and tried to disturb the wilderness as it exists, and some of those have

been successful,” he said. “We’d like to make it harder for them to be successful.” Another priority for conservationists is the Central Coast Heritage Protection Act, which would safeguard 245,000 acres in the Los Padres National Forest and the Carrizo Plain National Monument, protect wild and scenic rivers and designate a national recreational trail. The text of of Boxer’s bill, Senate Bill 1971, are online at congress.gov. The text of the Central Coast Heritage Protection Act, House Resolution 4685, are at capps.house. gov.

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com Mitt Romney struck me at the time as a concise summary of my own concerns, of how the 2016 Presidential Campaign’s Rhetoric and message of hate will impact the undocumented workers who are labeled as “Rapists and Murderers”, or as the “cause job loss in America” and specific statements to “deport all 11 Million undocumented workers”. The point is that the constant negative message of Donald Trump’s rhetoric affects all Latinos. This includes the successful Latino businessman or woman, to the undocumented Mexican day worker who wants earn enough money for the day to eat, pay rent and send money to his family.

Racism, Bigotry, Homophobia and Cold Blooded Murder By Carlos Alejandro Budhabhatti, Project Manager, Immigrant Empowerment Foundation, Inc., No VoteMany Voices Project San Jose CA LIFORNIA On early Sunday Morning, at approximately 2:00am, at a nightclub, called The Pulse, in Orlando, Florida, lights flashed to signal “last call” for drinks. Moments later, there was a convergence of hate and automatic guns.

Automatic gunfire rang out. An assailant, Omar Mateen, proceeded to kill 49 people at the club and injure more than 50 others, 6 critically. Over 71% (35 of 49) of those killed were Latino. Many of the over 50 injured were also were Gay and/or Latino who were attending Saturday’s Salsa Night at The Pulse. This violent act comes on the heels of a statement last week by the 2012, Republican Presidential Nominee, Mitt Romney, where he voiced the detrimental effect on our society of the divisive and hateful rhetoric of Donald Trump. Mitt Romney stated that the Trump Rhetoric will lead to “trickle down racism and bigotry” in our society. This statement by

The gunman, Omar Mateen, born in Queens, New York, is nothing more than a mentally ill and sick murderer. He talked about killing people as far back as elementary school. He is a criminal who happens to be Muslim. Mateen’s claim to support or be inspired ISIS and al-Qaeda is evidence that this young man was mentally unstable. Most people know that ISIS and al-Qaeda are sometimes considered mortal enemies, although they all are anti-western democracy organizations and criminal enterprises. This is subtle evidence that the murderer, Omar Mateen, from Queens, New York, was not necessary radicalized by the philosophical messaging of organizations like ISIS or al-Qaeda, but that this weak minded young man had lost hope, had no capacity to respect the rights of others, and no capacity to respect others that may be different than himself. He hated Latinos and he hated Gays. As President Obama stated in his press conference on Tuesday June 14, 2016, ISIS is nothing more than a bunch of “thieves and thugs”. The murderer, Omar Mateen, was merely inspired by other criminals. Did Omar Mateen kill because he hated Latino’s? Did he kill because he hated Gays? Did he kill because he was a Bigot? Did he kill for Jihad? During his rampage, two witnesses have reported Mateen said “I don’t have anything against black people”. So, as of today, we do not know his true motive. But we do know by his actions that he hated other human beings.

Mitt Romney’s statement last week was prophetic. Hateful political rhetoric such as Donald Trump’s daily tweets or hateful speeches which target Mexicans, Gays, Women, African-Americans, Muslims, and others has consequences. This hate trickles down into society. We do not definitively know what triggered Omar Mateen to his horrific action. However, on Sunday, June 12, 2016, at approximately 2:00am, hatred struck again in America. A mentally ill young man named Omar Mateen, a criminal born in Queens, New York, acted on his hate by killing 49 Latinos, Gays, and other innocent human beings, and injuring over 50 others. As of today, 33 victims are in the hospital, 6 in critical condition. At the Immigrant Empowerment Foundation, and the No Vote-Many Voices Project, we thank El Observador, founded in 1980,

JUNE 17-23, 2016 for its allowing us to express our opinion and sympathy to all victims. We call upon all people of faith to pray for the family and friends of those killed and injured, and to pray for tolerance and love. We also call upon Immigrant Rights Advocates, the Anti-Gun Lobby and the LGBT Community to work together and take the fight to where it belongs. Let’s use our vote to change Congress with a focused strategy that targets the most vulnerable members of the Senate and House of Representatives. Then, and only then, will we have meaningful change.

In memory of the victims, may they Rest In Peace !

Legislative Hearing Today on Direct File Ballot Initiative

By Raul Ray, Esq. A decision by the Supreme Court on President Obama’s DAPA and Expanded DACA initiatives could be handed down as early as next week. The court’s current term, which started October 2015, will conclude at the end of this month. A new study shows that the practice of charging youth as adults varies widely across the state. (Youth Justice Coalition)

If the court rules in favor of the Obama initiatives, it may take several weeks before eligible applicants can begin applying. On the other hand, if the court rules against DAPA/Expanded DACA or issues a decision that ends in a tie vote, then the programs will not go forward. However the fight for dignity and inclusion of all people in our society will certainly continue. We will keep you apprised on the very latest news from the U.S. Supreme Court.

Suzanne Potter CALIFORNIA NEWS SERVICE SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The practice of “direct file,” in which a prosecutor decides to file adult criminal charges against a youth, varies widely by county and disproportionately affects young people of color, according to a new report which can be downloaded and viewed at <burnsinstitute.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Ending-Adult-Prosecution_FINAL.pdf>.

used kind of at the discretion of a prosecutor and doesn’t align with rates of crime that are happening in that county.” An initiative on the November ballot called the Public Safety and Rehabilitation Act of 2016 would eliminate direct file for youth. It would extend opportunities for good time credits and parole to adult prisoners. The ballot measure is the subject of a joint hearing of the Public Safety Committees of the state Senate and Assembly today in Sacramento.

Researchers from three nonprofit groups that work on juvenile justice also found that Yuba, Kings, Sutter, Napa and San Joaquin counties have the highest rates of direct file and San Francisco has the lowest -- because there, all juveniles are granted a fitness hearing before a juvenile-system judge.

Washburn said youthful defendants deserve a fitness hearing because the juvenile system offers a much better chance of rehabilitation.

“What this highlights is that it’s not being used consistently by prosecutors,” said Maureen Washburn, one of the report’s coauthors and a policy analyst for the Center for Juvenile and Criminal Justice, “that it’s being

On Monday, the state Supreme Court rejected a challenge to the ballot initiative, so voters will have a chance to weigh in this November.

“It touches both the juvenile and the adult system in ways that will make it much more just,” she said.

When Tony first started the car club his intentions were that it would be one that was strictly community oriented. Unlike other clubs that require monthly dues and monthly meetings, he wanted the vibe of their club to be, “like a social club and one big family. The main goal was to help the less fortunate,” says Sylvia.

Sylvia Martinez’s “Bomb”. Courtesy of Blvd. Bombs

Tony and Sylvia Martinez’s approach to helping the disenfranchised is both lively and from the heart Arturo Hilario EL OBSERVADOR From turkey drives, to clothing and feeding the homeless, San Jose based organization Blvd. Bombs has grown into a magnet for those that want to be part of a car club with a purpose. Beyond getting into the pages of magazines or being the biggest show in town, these cool cars are shiny, but at the same time those being helped get to shine too. Founders Tony and Sylvia Martinez are a tag team with a lot of love to give. They and their supporters focus their efforts on on the disparity that grows in the Bay Area. Sylvia Martinez states, “our mission is to help the less fortunate, especially the homeless. When I was a little girl I use to walk to the store with my grandma and  once in a while we would see a homeless person.  My grandma would tell me in Spanish, “today it is them, but tomorrow it could be us.”   My grandma passed away in 2004, and little does she know how right she was.” Tony Martinez states, “now in days there are different walks of life that are homeless.  Some have lost their jobs, homes, are divorced. People can’t find enough money to pay for their rent, so they end up in the streets.” And thus the story of the Martinez’s pursuit of aiding those in need began. “Eleven years ago my husband Tony Martinez and I started a Donate A Coat Drive and it was surprisingly successful. With family and a few friends we went and fed the homeless at St James Park.” With donations provided from local McDonald’s and Wienerschnitzel, the couple decided that there needed to be a way to approach the growing disparity in an organized manner.

In the years since their first car show, other big-name car shows have began to have their shows during the same times as the Show & Shine, forcing patrons to choose from the more well known car shows and the one that although more rooted in community service, doesn’t have as much glitz and glamour. This sometimes leaves the yearly car show in the negative, but the Martinez’s continue to raise money and supplies for those that need it. “All we can do is try. If we do not have a decent turnout this year, it will be our last fundraiser show,” says Sylvia.  Although we had a horrible turnout last year we continued to do what we do each year for the homeless, thank God for credit cards. It won’t stop us from trying.  At the end it’s not for us, it’s for the less fortunate.”  Sylvia mentions a true story which she reminds herself about once in a while, to keep her pushing towards her and Tony’s goals of helping. “A little boy wanted to help the homeless kids, he was sending emails, people kept telling him ‘no’. He kept sending out letters, and finally Build-A-Bear donated 500 bears. It was very encouraging.” Beyond the car show, Blvd. Bombs now has a non-profit wing, and with support already growing for the non-profit, (on day one of the site being live they began to receive donations), the Martinez’s march forward in their work of helping those less fortunate. With other wings of the club located in Illinois and Arizona, their reach of showing off cars and giving out sleeping bags and supplies on the streets spreads. The Martinez’s see all this work and support as a blessing, and hope to continue to help those in need into the future. The Blvd. Bombs Car Show takes place Saturday, June 18th, 2016 from 11AM to 5PM at Berryessa Flea Market. To support in other ways, please visit <http://www.blvdbombs. com/Donation.html> to learn more about their work and events, as well as how to donate to their non-profit, Boulevard Bombs Foundation.

According to US Census the Hispanic/Latino population grew from 12.5 (35.3 million) to over 16 percent (50.4 Million) of the US Population between 2000 and 2010. This is the fastest growing segment of the population and consumer base. However, they are also the most underrepresented in leadership, management and face of the company contact points with the general public. Because of these two strategic points, employers are aggressively seeking to increase their diversity especially for Hispanics and Latinos. Employers are realizing that if they don’t start building a diverse workforce today they will be at a distinct business disadvantage in the near future. There are employers in the San Jose/Silicon Valley that realize this as an opportunity to build a more inclusive workforce that reflects all the communities they serve. Accordingly, the benefits in the short and long term are enormous for the employer, employees, local community and US economy. This includes more consumer spending, tax revenues, greater market share and sales for employers with a diverse workforce. It’s a win-win-win situation.

Alberto Hauffen UNIVERSIDAD DE CALIFORNIA Científicos y líderes de la industria citrícola de California confían en poder estar

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

mejor equipados con una nueva instalación de contención de plagas y enfermedades que afectan a los cítricos, que se construirá próximamente y será operada por expertos del plantel de la Universidad de California en Riverside.

JUNE 17-23, 2016

“Ahí podremos llevar a cabo investigaciones de enfermedades exóticas de los cítricos. Y la más importante de ellas es el huanglongbing, el enverdecimiento de los cítricos que está destruyendo la industria citrícola de la Florida”, afirmó el fitopatólogo Georgios Vidalakis, de Extensión Cooperativa de la UC en el plantel de Riverside.

“El psílido asiático de los cítricos se ha establecido en todo el sur de California, desde San Diego hasta el condado de Ventura”, explicó el experto en plagas exóticas. “Han estado aumentando en el Valle Central, en Tulare por ejemplo, y alrededor de Bakersfield donde se encuentra la mayor producción de cítricos”.

La instalación de contención de plagas y enfermedades citrícolas, que construirá la Fundación de Investigación Citrícola de California, permitirá estudiar mejor el huanglongbing y el psílido asiático de los cítricos, el diminuto insecto que transmite la bacteria que mata los árboles, explicó Vidalakis durante una reciente ceremonia a la que asistieron líderes de la industria citrícola y funcionarios de gobierno para anunciar la construcción del nuevo edificio auspiciado por productores de cítricos.

Para proteger la industria citrícola de California, expertos de la UC siguen buscando otros tipos de soluciones, como encontrar nuevos métodos de detección de la presencia de patógenos, o manipular la composición genética de los cítricos para hacerlos más resistentes a enfermedades como el huanglongbing, señaló Mikeal Roose, catedrático de genética de plantas de UC Riverside.

Según Vidalakis, del 2005 a la fecha Florida ha perdido cerca de la mitad de 800,000 acres dedicados al cultivo de cítricos a causa del huanglongbing. El huanglongbing también ha causado estragos en los cultivos de cítricos del estado de Texas, y en México y Brasil. Se teme que lo mismo ocurra en la industria citrícola de California, valorada en 3,300 millones de dólares, puesto que el psílido sigue propagándose por el estado. “Así que es importante para nosotros en California que seamos proactivos”, dijo Vidalakis, quien dirige el Programa de Protección de Clones de Cítricos que opera en el plantel de la UC en Riverside. Vidalakis confía en que la nueva instalación de contención de plagas y enfermedades citrícolas comience a operar dentro de un año. La instalación de contención, denominada con Nivel 3 de Bioseguridad, será un edificio que facilitará la labor de los científicos enfocados en combatir enfermedades y plagas que afectan a los cítricos. “Nos permitirá hacer el trabajo dentro de un laboratorio muy seguro, que no podríamos hacer en un laboratorio normal”, indicó el entomólogo Mark Hoddle. “Nos permitirá estudiar organismos que causan enfermedades que atacan a las plantas de cítricos. Son enfermedades muy peligrosas para estas plantas. Necesitamos instalaciones de contención especializadas para controlarlas”. En el 2011, Hoddle inició un programa de erradicación del psílido asiático mediante la importación de una diminuta mosca depredadora de Pakistán, la misma zona donde se originó esa plaga. Las moscas parasíticas (Tamarixia radiata) se han esparcido en zonas afectadas por el psílido y, según Hoddle, han reducido su población entre 55 y 95 por ciento.

“La instalación de bioseguridad que se construirá aquí permitirá llevar a cabo investigación de enfermedades de plantas, ahora específicamente el huanglongbing. Pero luego de otros patógenos que antes no podíamos investigar”, indicó Roose. “ Esto es muy importante porque hay muchas otras enfermedades muy peligrosas para los cítricos, además del huanglongbing, que ahora no podemos investigar a fondo”. Hasta ahora, señaló el rector de UC Riverside Kim Wilcox, para hacer sus investigaciones los científicos de UC Riverside han estado viajando al plantel de la UC en Davis, donde opera la única instalación de contención en California. “Ahora, ellos podrán hacer su trabajo aquí. La universidad, el gobierno federal y socios de la industria privada se han unido para decir: Podemos resolver el problema. Un edificio es lo que necesitamos y un edificio es lo que tendremos”, dijo Wilcox al anunciarse la construcción del edificio enfocado en combatir el huanglongbing. “Me enorgullece estar presente en otro hito histórico de la universidad y ver el compromiso de socios de la industria privada y del gobierno para asegurar que no caigamos presa de esta terrible amenaza para la industria citrícola”.

Una iniciativa para controlar las plagas invasivas y endémicas es parte de la Visión Estratégica 2025 (Strategic Vision 2025) de la División de Agricultura y Recursos Naturales de la UC.


JUNE 17-23, 2016

New America Media EDITORIAL There are moments when as a member of the ethnic press we must leverage our collective voice, to push our nation’s leaders to act in the interest of the communities we serve. This is one of those moments. In the early morning of June 12, a gunman in Orlando, Florida entered a gay nightclub and massacred 49 people in what is the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.  Most of the victims were still in the prime of their youth, individuals – many of them from the LGBTQ community – who represented the hopes and dreams of the diverse communities from which they came. Those dreams have now been cruelly snuffed out. As the New York Times Editorial board put it, the United States is the only nation where the term “mass shooting” is preceded by the phrase “yet another.”  It need not be this way.  FBI authorities had tracked Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old Afghan American born in New York, months before the attack. He was nevertheless able to purchase a cache of weaponry including an AR15, an assault style rifle carried by members of the U.S. military, in the week prior to his killing spree.

NATIONAL

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com

The military-grade AR15 fires 800 rounds-perminute or 13 rounds-per-second. The semi-automatic version carried by Mateen and other perpetrators of mass shootings has a magazine capacity of 30 rounds and can fire bullets as fast as the shooter can pull the trigger. Assault style weapons like the AR15 have but one purpose, which is to kill en masse. They have no place on America’s streets.  Much has been made of Mateen’s professed allegiance to terror groups, his history of domestic violence, and his alleged homophobic leanings. All of these must be and indeed are being investigated as possible factors fueling his rampage.  But what made the Orlando tragedy all too possible – in fact likely – was the ease with which guns like the AR15 are bought and sold in this country.

“We have to make it harder for people who want to kill Americans to get their hands on weapons of war that let them kill dozens of innocents,” said President Obama in televised remarks Tuesday. The president angrily noted that individuals who can be placed on a no fly list are able to purchase the kind of weaponry one normally associates with a war zone. While an assault weapons ban will not prevent future tragedies, and while it will not address the daily violence that is a tragic hallmark for far too many Americans, it will help begin to turn the bloody tide of mass shootings that is all too quickly becoming the norm in this country.  Such bans already exist in California and several other states, though the lack of similar bans in neighboring states undermines efforts to curb their presence.  Which is why action is needed at the federal level. 

Data show that up to a million AR15s are purchased every year by U.S. civilians. Estimates put the number of assault style weapons now in circulation as high as 8 million. A reporter in Philadelphia chronicled her experience in acquiring an AR15, noting it took all of 7 minutes between when she showed her driver’s license, passed her background check and walked out gun in hand. Prior to Orlando, the AR15 – which the NRA has dubbed “America’s Gun” – was used by shooters in San Bernardino, California (14 dead, 22 wounded); Newtown, Connecticut (26 dead, 2 wounded); and Aurora, Colorado (12 dead, 70 wounded). 

Already leaders in Congress, including California Democrat Dianne Feinstein, are beginning to call for a return of the 1994 ban on assault weapons sales that was allowed to expire in 2004. New America Media, which for more than two decades has worked with ethnic media to highlight the issues most important to America’s diverse communities, supports these efforts. We call on our leaders in Washington on both sides of the political aisle to come together and act now to pass sensible gun control legislation that removes these weapons of terror from our streets.

Washington D.C. El viernes pasado, la congresista Loretta Sanchez (CA-46), co-presidente del Subcomité de Inmigración del Caucus Hispano del Congreso, hablo en frente del pleno de la Cámara de Representantes en contra de la disposición discriminatoria impidiendo que la Biblioteca del Congreso elimine el término ‘extranjero ilegal’ en sus textos.   “Este lenguaje partidista obligará a la Biblioteca del Congreso que sigue usando el término ‘extranjero ilegal’ a pesar de que la Biblioteca del Congreso decidió eliminar este término degradante e erróneo del Sistema de Encabezamiento de Materia de la Biblioteca”, dijo la representante Sanchez.   “‘Extranjero ilegal’ es una forma de retórica deshumanizante. Este término se ha utilizado para justificar la discriminación con-

tra nuestras comunidades vulnerables de inmigrantes y minorías”, dijo la representante Sanchez. “Esta disposición está politizando lo que se supone que es un proyecto de ley bipartidista”. La congresista continuó, “Esta interferencia sin ningún precedente del Congreso tendrá grandes consecuencias. La Biblioteca del Congreso establece el estándar para los encabezamientos de materia utilizados por bibliotecas de todo los Estados Unidos e internacionalmente”.   “Extranjero ilegal es erróneo. La Biblioteca del Congreso contiene nuestros archivos más importantes y debe ser precisa y reflejar la realidad”, concluyó la representante Sanchez.   El discurso completo de la congresista Sanchez se puede ver en  <http://www.c-span. org/video/?c4603360/congresswoman-loretta-sanches>.

El siguiente párrafo es parte de mi nota en El Observador, el día viernes 18 de diciembre de 2015: “Quizá lo más preocupante del 2016 sea la posición del planeta Marte retrógrado del día 17 de abril al 29 de junio. Este aspecto planetario hará conjunción con la posición de Saturno en el signo Sagitario, signo que rige la política y la religión entre otros aspectos. Durante ese periodo es probable que ocurran nuevos y cruentos atentados terroristas en diversas regiones del mundo, especialmente en Europa y Estados Unidos” No me gusta ser ave de mal agüero, pero considero necesario alertar a la gente cuando los aspectos planetarios son adversos. Existe un común denominador de todos estos atentados terroristas y nos guste o no, es “el extremismo del Islam”.

JUNE 17-23, 2016 ella se nos considera “infieles”, seres impuros que no merecen según ellos la misericordia de Alá. Se han cometido tantos hechos sangrientos en nombre de la religión, la horrenda inquisición de la religión católica, la esclavitud que duró siglos y ahora los musulmanes extremistas, exterminando personas ajenas al Islam, creen que se ganan el cielo con ello. Éstos son unos asesinos, ya es hora que el gobierno de Estados Unidos en vez de andar cazando indocumentados humildes y trabajadores, dedique todos sus recursos investigando a los musulmanes que entran a este país por la vía legal, los extremistas de esta religión son el verdadero enemigo de esta nación. ¡Despierta USA! Lastimosamente Saturno, el planeta del karma se mantendrá navegando en el signo Sagitario hasta el 20 de diciembre del 2017. Este aspecto astral seguirá provocando más desgracias en cuanto a religión y política se refiere. Lamentablemente ocurrirán más atentados terroristas. Ojalá algún día lleguemos todos a la conclusión que Dios, Jesucristo y Alá, lo que desean es tener creyentes fieles, humildes y generosos, y no fanáticos que asesinan a gente inocente en nombre de la Biblia o el Corán. Nadie tiene derecho de juzgar la vida de otro ser humano, el único con ese derecho es Dios, Que tire la primera piedra quien esté libre de pecado.

Israel Imru EL OBSERVADOR Despite Nintendo being the forgotten, fallen player of the big 3 console manufacturers, everybody – and I mean everybody – looks forward to their new AAA games. This time around it’s Nintendo’s most critically-acclaimed, most universally-loved franchise that is garnering attention. A win in federal court for consumers, say advocates of net neutrality. (Greg Stotelmyer)

Greg Stotelmyer CALIFORNIA NEWS SERVICE WHITESBURG, Ky. - A federal court has upheld the Federal Communication Commission’s decision to treat the Internet like a utility - a victory for consumers say advocates of net neutrality. The 2-to-1 ruling came Tuesday from the U.S. Court of Appeals for Washington, D.C. Marty Newell, a member of the Rural Broadband Policy Group, says the court ruling is “part of the march” to treating broadband the same way we treat telephone service. “It’s not optional,” he stresses. “It’s not a luxury. There was a time when Internet access might have been considered a luxury, but it’s not now. That time has passed. “It’s a necessity in the same way that we looked at the telephone once upon a time.” The cable and telecom industries and their allies argue that the FCC’s rule is overreaching and would stifle investment and customer choice.

But Newell and other advocates say web users need more protections from providers. Newell says the ruling is especially important in rural areas of the country that are underserved by broadband. Take Kentucky for example, where Newell says around one out of every four households does not have access to broadband services. “We don’t have as much choice,” he points out. “The competition is not nearly as great. “It is critical that this communications tool that it is absolutely essential to do business in the 21st century, that it be an open system.” The Rural Broadband Policy Group says of the 19 million Americans who don’t have broadband, more than 14 million live in rural parts of the country. Noting a lot of money is at stake, Newell says he knows the legal challenges will continue, something the industry giants have promised.

Unveiled before a live-internet audience, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is Nintendo’s 6th 3D, main-line video game from the Legend of Zelda franchise, and direct successor to the Wii’s Skyward Sword. This is the first peek into the game that Nintendo has shown us beyond a simple teaser; it appears to have been absolutely worth the wait. The trailer does a tremendous job of showing us where this new iteration differs from previous 3D entries and it has everybody in an absolute frenzy. Through previous Zelda games, the overarching formula began to grow a bit stale: Link explores a themed-dungeon, grabs the main item from a large chest, and then proceeds to use that item to gain access to new areas in sequential order. In their mostrecent 3DS Zelda title, A Link Between Worlds (ALBW), Nintendo implemented a system in which the main items used for exploration -- the ones typically found in dungeons – could be bought in any order. This change sounds insignificant but it was impactful and universally loved, namely because it allowed the player to focus on exploration of the world, something we had not quite seen since their initial release of The Legend of Zelda back on the original NES. From what we’ve seen in the trailer, Nintendo is using a similar design tactic with BotW.

With the recent slew of very-good games with heavy emphasis on exploration (Metal Gear Solid V, The Witcher 3, GTA 5), it appears as though Breath of the Wild (BotW) aims to bring some of those exploration features to a beautiful reimagining of Hyrule as an open-world. Nintendo, despite recent console woes, has proven to be among the best developers in the world, still at the top of their game. It is the sole reason why we as fans are so trusting in Nintendo’s ability to deliver on what appears to be new ground for the esteemed team. It is very easy to build out an open-world, but it a completely different story to flesh out that world and have it be enjoyable and feel alive. If Nintendo can pull it off, we may have an all-timer on our hands in 2017. Going back to the trailer, it marveled us with shots of Link rock-climbing, parachuting off mountain-tops, and even cutting down trees to cross a river. From the looks of it, not only will there be plenty of traditional exploration, but also traversing difficult and varied terrain seem to be a major part of the game. The physics engine appears to provide us gamers with tons of sandbox-y fun, including creating large brush fires, among other things. Open-world exploration with world-class Nintendo puzzles using an advanced physics engine has me already looking forward to plunking down some money for Nintendo’s next console, the NX. And so, despite recent struggles, despite the swift and early demise of the Wii U, Nintendo continues to impress with their un-matched talent to bring insane levels of excitement from even the coldest of fans. I truly believe that despite all of the criticism we shell out to Nintendo, the gaming industry -- even the world -- is a much better place when Nintendo is out there innovating and giving us 100% of their heart and effort.

One day after their season ended with a 3-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6 at SAP Center, the Sharks were still reeling from coming up short of winning the Stanley Cup. But they’re also optimistic after making such a deep run. “We were planning on getting on a flight to Pittsburgh,” Sharks center Joe Thornton said

on Monday. “We have such a good group. You just don’t want this thing to end. We really thought we could get this thing to Game 7 and you never know what could happen. It’s just a weird feeling that all of a sudden you’re done with hockey. It just comes to an end. You’re just disappointed that way. “You know how much fun we had as a group. We just realized what kind of special group and special guys we had in this locker room. We just enjoyed the ride and the fans were a big part of that. We fed off their energy. You could feel this was a special year and it could have been even more special. It’s going to sting for a little bit, but we’ll be back.”
