Symphony Silicon Valley Continues the Harry Potter Film Concert Series with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix You-Know-Who™ is not the only one who has returned—Harry Potter™, Ron Weasley™, and Hermione Granger™ are back as well in this unforgettable concert event. Relive the magic with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix™ displayed on a giant screen in high-definition and accompanied by a symphonic orchestra. Experience Harry and his friends race through the Department of Mysteries, practice Defense Against the Dark Arts in secret, and endure Professor Umbridge™ with Nicholas Hooper’s iconic score. The Harry Potter Film Concert Series, which is another magical experience from J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, kicked off in June 2016 with Harry Potter and the Socerer’s Stone and Symphony Silicon Valley is presenting the complete series of films through 2019. Now in his fifth year at Hogwarts, Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) learns that many in the wizarding community do not know the truth of his encounter with Lord Voldemort. Cornelius Fudge, minister of Magic, appoints his toady, Dolores Umbridge, as Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, for he fears that professor

Dumbledore will take his job. But her teaching is deficient and her methods, cruel, so Harry prepares a group of students to defend the school against a rising tide of evil. Featuring a colorful and inspiring score by Nicholas Hooper, the soundtrack to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix takes the moviegoer to the next level of magical enchantment right along with Harry and his friends. This film concert series has been created

by CineConcerts, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, and will be conducted by its creator and Producer, Justin Freer. He explains, “The Harry Potter film series continues to be a once-in-a-lifetime cultural phenomenon that delights millions of fans around the world. It is with great pleasure that we introduced for the first time ever an opportunity to experience the award-winning music scores played live by a symphony orchestra, all

while the beloved film is simultaneously projected onto the big screen. It is an unforgettable event.” Brady Beaubien of CineConcerts and Concert Producer for the Harry Potter Film Concert Series added, “Harry Potter is synonymous with excitement around the world and we hope that by performing this incredible music with the full movie, audiences will enjoy returning to this world, and to the many wonderful magical characters that inhabit it.”

Making a Difference Teen Challenge; Annual Benefit and Celebration Teen Challenge held its Annual Benefit and Celebration, October 11 at Bethel Church of San Jose. A night to acknowledge the hard work and break achievements by everyone involved in Teen Challenge. 60 years ago someone decided that, at the time, young people needed an opportunity out of the awful circumstances they had gotten themselves into. That man David Wilkerson, possibly couldn’t imagine the scope of his legacy today. The number of people, literally, rescued by this program is incalculable. But in souls and hearts for the many program participants, their families, sponsors, employers/employees, program workers and their communities impacted -- we are all richly rewarded with these people’s contribution to society.

Early to rise, early to prize.

Good Conversation IBM Executive Lunch III IBM in Foster City held its 3rd in a series of a yearly gathering; cwith a call to a diverse group to join in conversation on Leadership, Diversity and Can we have it both ways; What does it take for those with high quality - hard earned careers to achieve an optimum quality of work life? Attendess came to hear how speakers from throughout the Bay Area share experiences of inclusion and commitments each has made and continues to make - with an everyday push for progress through actions and talent preparedness to guide you to that next professional opportunity. The consensus of the crowd: High skill set matched with focused ambition: such is a person who can not be held down or back -- for long. “Ideas behind event: To bring together the Bay Area wide talented women

non technical and sales professions to provide a networking, mentoring, talent preparedness forum for their career journey. Opportunities to hear through the years from leaders in a range of fields over the last 6 years. Progressed: The event has started as a breakfast in the south bay IBM location with a capacity attendance of 290 each year, that included speed mentoring, panel, keynote and ending the day in the afternoon with an informal lunch to a shortened agenda with mid Bay Area location as Foster City that starts with lunch, keynote and panel. Surprising moment: After the second “Executive Breakfast” in 2014, the strong feedback was to expand the panel to 1 hour and to eliminate the speed mentoring as it was too open in conversation and attendees wanted private career conversations and would not get too deep in to their questions in an

open setting.” -Terry Davis, IBM San Francisco Site HR Leader, Senior HR Partner, Hybrid Cloud, Watson & Cloud Platform

“A lot of excellent material was shared over

the course of the session. I left wondering if there might be a way to share it with those outside the room to serve as: • A resource for individuals and groups not able to attend • A record of what was shared for future reference • A foundation upon

which to build in future sessions or other efforts The broader idea being to move an inspiring event for those in attendance at the time to being part of a shared learning that lives on and grows.” -Peter DiGiammarino Professional CEO

Shake It Off Millions of Californians Prepare to Participate in Annual ShakeOut Earthquake Drill Millions of Californians will take an important step toward earthquake safety this Thursday, Oct. 18, at 10:18 a.m. during the 10th annual Great California ShakeOut drill, by practicing how to “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” when the ground shakes. Most Californians live within 30 miles of an active fault. Scientists say there is a 99 percent chance of a magnitude 6.7 or greater earthquake striking our state within the next 30 years. “Knowing what to do when the ground shakes should be instinctive for everyone who lives in California,” said California Earthquake Authority (CEA) CEO Glenn Pomeroy. “This simple drill will save lives the next time California is hit by a powerful earthquake.” CEA is the notfor-profit provider of residential earthquake insurance in California and now insures more than 1 million homes. CEA has lowered rates by over 50 percent since

it was established in the wake of the 1994 Northridge earthquake, and now offers a wide range of coverage and deductible options. In addition to providing earthquake insurance, CEA has teamed up with the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) to establish the Earthquake Brace + Bolt (EBB) program to help owners of older houses reduce expensive shake damage by bracing their raised foundation and bolting their house to the foundation in accordance with current building codes. Since the launch of EBB in 2013, more than 6,400 homeowners have received grants of up to $3,000 from EBB to retrofit their houses. “When the ground shakes under an older house that hasn’t been properly retrofitted, the house can act as if a rug has been pulled out from underneath it,” said Pomeroy. “Houses built prior to 1980 often topple completely off their foundation in an

earthquake and may not be livable for a couple of years—if they can be repaired at all.” Registration for the 2019 EBB seismic retrofit grant program is now open through Nov. 13 for eligible homeowners in select ZIP Codes. About CEA The California Earthquake Authority (CEA) is a not-forprofit, privately funded, publicly managed organization that provides residential earthquake insurance and encourages Californians to reduce their risk of earthquake loss.

D2 News Dear neighbors, Community members consistently approach me about the cleanliness, or lack thereof, of our City streets. Like most issues, there is no single, all-encompassing solution to our challenges with blight. The reality is that trash is a drain on City resources, and it impacts how we feel about our community.

#D2CleanStreets Initiative

Making our community cleaner is a priority for my office, which is why I have secured nearly $200,000 from the City’s budget to kick off several programs that are part of my action plan to help #beautifySJ, starting with District 2. My team and I are launching the #D2CleanStreets Initiative in South San Jose, a multi-faceted approach to combating the blight plaguing our streets. This initiative starts with three steps: 1. Downtown Streets Team: I know that we have notoriously blighted areas in District 2. I am hoping to change that by enlisting Downtown Streets Team (DST), a non-profit organization that contributes to a cleaner community. DST launched their empowering work experience program that engages homeless and at-risk individuals by having them clean up trash, litter, and graffiti while providing basic-need gift cards and hygiene kits on Thursday, October 18. This project is a one-year agreement with DST to clean up Monterey Road from Branham Lane to Ford Road three days a week and the corner of Blossom Hill Road and Snell Avenue one day a week. Additionally, the project shall have measurable benchmarks for items such as the amount of trash collected and the number of individuals engaged. DST will work with the District 2 Council Office to evaluate the effectiveness and impact of the project. 2. Project Hope: My office is also kicking off efforts to build community resilience and activation along the high-need area of Roeder Avenue and Roundtable Drive through Project Hope. Project Hope is a community-driven initiative led by the City’s Anti-Graffiti & Anti-Litter Program. It is a unique and innovative neighborhood engagement and improvement program that aims to improve the quality of life by addressing challenges comprehensively and collaboratively. Project Hope’s objective is to develop strong new community leaders and action-oriented neighborhood organizations. Program leaders have dedicated the next year to meeting with residents and getting them involved. If you share my vision of making our neighborhoods safer, cleaner, and more engaged, please contact 3. Monterey Road Sound Wall: Over the years, District 2 has struggled with clearing graffiti along the Monterey Road sound wall. The greatest obstacle in tackling this problem is gaining permission to access the train tracks, which are Union Pacific property. Though I recognize the courage of neighbors who have taken it upon themselves to paint over the graffiti, we need a long term solution to this ongoing problem. My City Council colleagues and I have directed the City Attorney to negotiate a Memorandum of Understanding with Union Pacific to gain access to the train tracks. Having this access will allow us to clean the fence and potentially abate unsafe homeless encampments along the tracks. This is just one of my many long term solutions to making Monterey Road the “grand boulevard” our community deserves. I hope you recognize that my goal is to lead our community towards a cleaner version of itself. However, I cannot do this alone -- I need your support. I sincerely thank everyone who already contributes to community beautification projects. From Neighborhood Associations to student volunteers to park goers, we all have a civic responsibility to pitch in, clean our community, and work towards #D2CleanStreets. Visit my website for more information about #D2CleanStreets, and join our community efforts! Please contact my office if you have any questions.

In community, Sergio Jimenez District 2 Councilmember

“I was amazed! Sounds I hadn’t heard in years came back to me!” — Don W., Sherman, TX

Can a Hearing Aid Delay or Prevent Alzheimer’s and Dementia?

Hearing: Hearing exam and hearing aids up to $500 annually

A study by the National Institute on Aging suggests older individuals with hearing loss are significantly more likely to develop Alzheimer’s and dementia over time than those who retain their hearing. They suggest that an intervention — such as a hearing aid — could delay or prevent this by improving hearing!
