Tacos with a Twist Naperville’s new Seoul Taco fuses Korean flavors, Mexican styles BY MARIE WILSON

For Reflejos

Korean-Mexican street food is now part of the Naperville dining scene with the opening Friday of Seoul Taco. The restaurant joined the downtown dining mix at 206 S. Washington St., selling recipes that are Korean barbecue-inspired, but made into foods that are Mexican-styled, such as tacos, burritos, quesadillas and nachos. Chef and Owner David Choi spent some of his childhood growing up in the Naperville area and opened his restaurant’s sixth location there after starting with a food truck and shops in St. Louis, then expanding to Chicago. “Naperville has a vibrant dining scene, and it’s only grown more over the years,” Choi said in a news release. “We look forward to becoming a part of the local Naperville community and sharing our passion for great food and stellar hospitality.” Seoul Taco is a fast-casual place — and a carefully designed one. There’s a mural inspired by Japanese anime, created by muralist and Kimski chef Won Kim and local artist Jake Merten, along with an installation of colorful boom boxes on the walls designed by Alex Morales of Smart Mouth Designs. Its menu boards are decorated with multilingual background patterns, also by Morales, and its vibe is all hip-hop. One example on the menu of the restaurant’s Korean-Mexican fusion is Bulgogi steak tacos, with Korean salad mix, green onion, crushed sesame seeds, lime and secret “Seoul Sauce.” Another menu highlight is gogi and waffles, but the word “waffles” isn’t to be taken literally. (It actually means sweet potato waffle fries.) Atop a bed of the fries, diners can add a choice of protein, along with housemade kimchi, sesame seeds, green onion, queso blanco and spicy “Seoul Sauce.” The restaurant is set to be open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily and seats roughly 40 people. It also will offer catering.

DAVID CHOI, chef and owner of Seoul Taco, has opened his restaurant’s newest location in Naperville after spending part of his childhood growing up in the area.

The Honorable Michael R. Pompeo Secretary of State U.S. Department of State 2201 C Street, N.W. Washington, D.C. 20230 Honorable Secretary Pompeo, Since 1975, the State of Illinois has welcomed and resettled more than 130,000 refugees from more than 86 countries. In recent years, 1,000 to 3,000 refugees, those seeking asylum, and victims of human trafficking arrived in Illinois annually. Refugees have successfully rebuilt their lives and made positive social and economic contributions to Illinois. They have helped revitalize neighborhoods and added to the cultural vitality of our state and communities. As the Governor of Illinois and the great-grandson of refugees, I am committed to ensuring that Illinois is a welcoming state, especially for refugees and those seeking asylum. As survivors of persecution, refugees embody the importance of human rights, democracy, and freedom. Refugees’ resilience in the face of hardship inspires courage, hope, and perseverance. And refugees’ countless contributions undoubtedly make our states and nation stronger. Importantly, refugees admitted through the United States must go through extensive security screening prior to their arrival. This process ensures that their claims are valid and that they are not a security risk to the United States. The security vetting can last more than two years and includes five background checks, four biometric security checks, and multiple interviews with United States officials. Once admitted to the United States, refugees are required to become self-sufficient and integrated into their new communities as soon as possible. The New American Economy’s report From Struggle to Resilience, the Economic Impact of Refugees in America and the National Bureau of Economic Research’s report The Economic and Social Outcomes of Refugees in the U.S. have documented that: • Refugees pay $21,000 more in taxes than they receive in benefits on average in their first 20 years in the U.S. • Refugee rates of entrepreneurship (15%) exceed other immigrants (11.5%) as well as U.S. born (9%). • Refugees become citizens at a higher rate than non-refugee immigrants. In 2015, 84% of eligible refugees were naturalized citizens as compared to 51% of other immigrants. • Refugee children do as well as U.S.-born children on measures of education attainment. • Over 77% of refugees are of working age as compared to 49.7% of the U.S.-born population, helping to meet U.S. labor force needs. Illinois communities have clearly benefited from having refugees in our midst. We coordinate with the U.S. State Department and the Office of Refugee Resettlement, as well as the non-profit sector, to make sure that local communities are consulted and engaged in an on-going, positive effort to welcome refugees and ensure that refugees can realize their full potential in our country. With a global humanitarian crisis of more than 70 million forcibly displaced individuals, including 25 million who are refugees seeking asylum, the United States should continue to provide leadership, in partnership with other countries, to offer resettlement for refugees. Our nation has the capacity to admit significantly more than the 18,000-person limit set by the presidential determination for FY20. I believe it is in our national interest and consistent with our national values to do so. As the Governor of Illinois, I proudly consent to the continuation of refugee admission to our state and extend a warm welcome to refugees who have come and will be coming to Illinois.

Ciudad Encantada, España Las formaciones rocosas de la Ciudad Encantada son formaciones de modelado kárstico, cuyo origen se remonta al periodo Cretácico, hace aproximadamente 90 millones de años. En el Cretácico, el mar de Thetis cubría gran parte de lo que actualmente es la Península Ibérica y la zona que hoy conforma la Ciudad Encantada formaba parte del fondo. Era una zona de aguas tranquilas donde existió una importante deposición de sales, principalmente carbonato cálcico, provenientes de los esqueletos de los animales de la zona y de la porción disuelta en el agua. Al final del Cretácico, la orogenia alpina originó la elevación del terreno, pasando a formar parte de la tierra emergida parte de la superficie que antes eran fondo marino. Los bancos de carbonato cálcico convertidos en piedra caliza quedaron expuestos a los agentes atmosféricos, como la lluvia, los cambios de temperatura, y a los agentes biológicos, como la acción de los diferentes seres vivos, que fueron progresivamente erosionando la roca. La roca caliza es muy permeable y permite la infiltración del agua de lluvia. El agua, junto con la acción del anhídrido carbónico (CO2), disuelve la roca caliza aumentando aún más su porosidad y formando en su interior galerías, dando como resultado las formaciones de karst.

Ready to serve

Wounded Warrior Project strives to repay those who paid the price for their country The Wounded Warrior Project was established to help America’s veterans of recent conflicts who suffered injuries, physical or otherwise, in the course of serving their country. With offices in 12 states, plus Washington, D.C., and Landstuhl, Germany, — including one in Chicago — as well as field staff at 11 locations, including six additional states, the organization seeks to reach as many Wounded Warriors as possible. For more information about the WWP or to make a donation, visitwww.woundedwarriorproject.org. To supplement information available at WWP’s website, we spoke to Vesta Anderson, who works in Warrior Support: Q: Can you give us a general overview of what the Wounded Warrior Project does? A: Wounded Warrior Project is transforming the way America’s injured veterans are empowered, employed, and engaged in our communities. Since 2003, we’ve been tireless advocates for our nation’s finest, improving the lives of millions of warriors and their families. Warriors never pay a penny for our programs — because they paid their dues on the battlefield. Our free services in mental health, career counseling, and long-term rehabilitative care change lives. We’re committed to helping injured veterans achieve their highest ambitions. When they’re ready to start their next mission, we stand ready to serve. Q: Who does Wounded Warrior Project help? A: The WWP mission is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors who incurred a physical or mental injury, illnesses or wound coincident to their military service on or after Sept. 11, 2001. You may also be eligible for the program if you are the family member or caregiver of a Wounded Warrior. WWP began as a small, grass-roots effort to provide immediate assistance when a warrior of this generation was injured. We felt we could do the most good by providing more comprehensive programs and services to the newly injured, rather than spread ourselves too thin by trying to help all veterans. We also knew there were many terrific veterans’ organizations for warriors from previous conflicts, but very few focused on serving our newest generation. Q: How can a Wounded Warrior get involved? A: Sign up online for our WWP Alumni program atwww.woundedwarriorproject. org/programs/alumni. WWP calls injured service members who get involved “Alumni.” The term indicates a mutual shared experience and denotes that your place in an organization was earned. It’s free to join. Throughout the year, we offer a wide range of events and activities around the country designed just for Alumni. These activities include sporting events, educational sessions and social events that give individuals a chance to spend time with other

injured service members. Alumni can also participate in many WWP activities and events for injured service members. Q: How does WWP help people? A:WWP provides more than 20 programs and services to injured service members and their families, in addition to numerous valuable resources. Offerings are categorized by Mind, Body, Economic Empowerment and Engagement, and include health and fitness coaching; combat stress recovery retreats; a mental health network; career counseling and job search assistance; VA benefits counseling; and the Independence Program, designed to help warriors suffering from moderate-to-severe brain injury, spinal cord injury, or neurological conditions take positive steps toward independent living. For details, visitwww.woundedwarriorproject.org/programs. Q: Tell us the story of someone who was helped by WWP. A: Dan Miller says he doesn’t see his life experiences as being his story. He prefers to call it his history. “We are all a product of our own personal histories,” Dan said. “The first step in really understanding a person or a subject is to understand the truth behind that history.” Dan’s history began in Chicago, and for as long as he can remember he wanted to be in the military. Throughout his military career with the U.S. Marine Corps, Dan served in many roles and deployed numerous times, including Desert Storm and twice in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. When he retired in May 2015, he had given 29 years of service to his country; five years on active duty and 24 years as a reservist. He also worked as a police officer for 21 years and retired from the force in June 2015. Dan will be the first to tell you that he loved serving in the Marines and fighting for his country, but the years took their toll. “When you see the destruction, the lives lost, the sacrifices, and the suffering, it changes you. But when it was happening, I didn’t have time to process it. So I buried it. I had to, because there was always the next mission, the next rocket or improvised explosive device, the next danger to prevent or avoid. Those experiences can’t stay buried forever.” After his retirement, doctors diagnosed Dan with traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder. The urge to quit entered Dan’s mind and he contemplated ending his life. Amazingly, a brochure for Wounded Warrior Project interrupted his suicide attempt. “It was on the seat beside me, and on the cover was a picture of a warrior who had lost his legs; yet, he was still working out in a gym. If he could do that, how could I give up? I wasn’t going to deny my problems anymore. I called WWP and, fast forward to today, they’ve helped me keep my family together and continue to make my history.” Dan’s message to his fellow warriors is a

message of hope. “I will pick you up and put you on my shoulder. We will move forward together. If I begin to falter, another veteran will come along and help us both. Together, we will reach our place of love and safety. Because we are, and always will be, family.” Q: What’s your next upcoming event in the Chicago/Illinois area? A: Each year, Chicago hosts wounded warriors from across the nation during the following two events: • Chicago Air & Water Show: More than 50 warriors and their families are honored with VIP treatment in Chicago through this event, which includes canoeing and kayaking opportunities. • Soldier Ride Chicago: Nearly 60 warriors from Illinois and across the country hit Chicago streets in what has become one of the most celebrated injured veteran cycling rides across the nation. The Wounded Warrior Project Soldier Ride program uses modified equipment and riding techniques to reintroduce the love of cycling to veterans with visible and invisible injuries. While helping warriors overcome physical, mental and emotional wounds through adaptive exercise, Soldier Ride also restores the unique bonds of military service to the recovery process. Reconnecting warriors to one another in the civilian world is critical to healing. In December and January, the following Wounded Warrior Project campaigns will take place in Illinois: • Couples Mental wellness workshop in Chicago, happening right now. Mental wellness workshops (also known as Project Odysseys) are a 90-day mental health program that begin with a three-day workshop to help military couples learn skills to strengthen connections alongside a loved one, and continues with three months of follow-ups and support. See more:www.woundedwarriorproject.org/

programs/combat-stress-recovery-program/ project-odyssey. • Second City Improv Class in Chicago. • Gingerbread Making family connection event in Rockford. • Family Date Night in Chicago. • Family Healthy Cooking class in Joliet. Q: What’s usually your biggest fundraising event of the year? A: The Wounded Warrior Project Courage Awards and Benefit Dinner. The next dinner will take place May 7, 2020, at Gotham Hall in New York City. For information, visitwww. woundedwarriorproject.org/courage-awards. Q: How can people who want to help out donate or volunteer? A: There are so many different ways to get involved and make a difference. Here are a few ideas: • Volunteer. Call your local VA Medical Center and ask about volunteer opportunities. • Advocate for wounded service members. Call or write your congressional representatives or senators and urge them to make injured service members a legislative priority. • Help raise awareness. Even the simplest efforts can make a difference. Help spread the word about the needs of wounded service members and the work of WWP in your community. If you know an injured service member who might benefit from WWP’s services, urge them to get involved — it’s free! • Consider a financial gift. If you’re in a position to do so, financial contributions are always greatly appreciated. Perhaps you might even host a fundraising event with your friends to benefit warriors. • Honor service members. If you know a service member, thank them for their service and sacrifices. • You can show your support for veterans by shopping with companies that support Wounded Warrior Project. For a list, visitwww.woundedwarriorproject.org/shop.

ientras cientos de miles de inmigrantes con permisos DACA esperan en vilo la decisión de la Corte Suprema del país sobre el futuro del programa, abogados y defensores de los inmigrantes aseguran que la inmensa mayoría de los amparados por el mismo tienen su+cientes derec!os legales para permanecer en este país por varios años y quizá inde+nidamente' Durante un evento organizado por el Condado de Los Ángeles y Et!nic .edia Services, los e1pertos instaron a los inmigrantes amparados por DACA o que alguna vez lo tuvieron, pero no lo renovaron, a asesorarse de inmediato con la %+cina de Asuntos de los Inmigrantes del condado o con alguna organización local respecto a sus derec!os legales, posible

Independientemente de lo que pueda decidir la Corte Suprema, los recursos legales y comunitarios apoyan su permanencia' E1pertos instan a los jóvenes a renovar su registro lo antes posible'

ayuda +nanciera y proceso para e1tender su permiso de inmediato' “Es muy importante que los inmigrantes con DACA renueven el programa lo antes posible”, dijo 0udit! #ásquez, representante de la supervisora del condado Hilda L' Solís' “Sabemos que el gobierno federal !a anunciado su intención de subir el costo de la renovación, de 495 dólares a 765 y lo mejor es que renueven a!ora antes que eso suceda”, agregó #ásquez, recordando que el condado de Los Ángeles “es el que tiene más inmigrantes con DACA en el país, alrededor de 3",&&&”' Los e1pertos agregaron que en el caso que la Corte Suprema permitiera el +n del programa, los bene+ciarios a/n tienen la posibilidad de estar en este país por varios años, con nuevos permisos obtenidos antes de la eliminación +nal del programa o luc!ando en los tribunales de forma individual' “Sabemos que el 95% de los inmigrantes con DACA no tienen pendiente una orden de deportación”, dijo Daniel S!arp, director de servicios legales del Centro de Recursos Centroamericanos (CARECE-)' “Eso quiere decir que, si la Corte Suprema permite al gobierno seguir con la eliminación de DACA, la gran mayoría de los bene+ciarios no está en peligro inminente de ser e1pulsada del país”'


BENEFICIARIOS DE DACA PODRÍAN PERMANECER EN ESTE PAÍS POR AÑOS A pesar de que a/n no !ay de+nición sobre el futuro de DACA, e1plico S!arp que “!ay que esperar lo mejor y prepararse para lo peor”, apuntó' “Hay que tomar en cuenta que al no tener ordenes pendientes, !ay derec!o a pelear la deportación y con la cantidad de casos que !ay en las cortes de inmigración en Los Ángeles, tres años es lo mínimo que se tardarían”, apuntó el abogado' $!omas A' Sáenz, presidente y abogado principal de .ALDE2 (El 2ondo .e1icoamericano para la Defensa Legal y Educación), dijo que a pesar de las predicciones de muc!os medios sobre un posible resultado negativo para DACA en la Corte Suprema, “no !ay manera de anticipar el resultado, es más, es irresponsable !acerlo”' Aseguró sin embargo que a/n en el caso de que la Corte Suprema fallara en contra de DACA (lo que podría ocurrir en los primeros seis meses del pró1imo año), los jóvenes inmigrantes “no estarán solos, !abrá miles de personas respaldándolos y asegurándonos que obtienen sus derec!os de pelear contra la deportación por todos los medios posibles”'


Muchas son las películas y series televisivas cuyo argumento transcurre durante la Navidad en el que, en un momento de la trama, alguien se sitúa bajo una rama de muérdago y acto seguido se besa con otra persona. Esta, como otras muchísimas costumbres, se ha hecho popular entre nosotros a través del cine y la televisión. Pero en realidad, lo de besarse bajo el muérdago es una más de las antiquísimas celebraciones que se originaron en la Europa Celta y que a través de los siglos fue evolucionando hasta acabar siendo una costumbre y tradición navideña. Evidentemente, en sus orígenes nada tenía que ver la Navidad con todo lo que el muérdago representaba para los celtas. Éstos la consideraban una planta con numerosas propiedades medicinales, a la vez que místicas. Muchos remedios y ungüentos utilizados desde la época de los celtas estaban realizados a partir de esta planta. Entre las muchas bondades que se le atribuía al muérdago se encontraba el considerarlo afrodisiaco, un potenciador de la fertilidad y la planta de la paz y el amor. Esto llevó a que muchos fueran los hogares en los que se colgase una rama de muérdago en la misma entrada, a modo de atraer la buena suerte para sus habitantes y visitantes, que reinase en aquella casa el amor y la paz y a la vez que fuese bendecida con muchos hijos. De ahí nació la costumbre de abrazarse y besarse al llegar a una casa y hacerlo cruzando el umbral en el que se encontraba el muérdago colgado. Con el paso de los siglos y la instauración de las costumbres navideñas, el muérdago continuó siendo uno de los elementos presentes en la decoración y, por tanto, continuando la tradición de que besarse bajo una rama de esta planta proporcionaría suerte y amor.

Yalitza Aparicio urge en Naciones Unidas La actriz es embajadora de buena voluntad de la Unesco, con quien trabaja en favor de la integración y de los derechos de los pueblos originarios en todo el mundo La actriz mexicana Yalitza Aparicio urgió en Naciones Unidas a proteger las lenguas indígenas y a combatir la discriminación que sufren estos pueblos para que puedan conservar con orgullo su patrimonio cultural. "Mi objetivo es que los padres no se vean en la obligación de olvidar quienes son, de dónde vienen, de sus raíces o de tener que ocultar sus lenguas indígenas por tener que proteger a sus hijos de la sociedad que los discrimina, los limita y los encasilla", defendió Aparicio, protagonista de la oscarizada película "Roma". De ascendencia indígena, la actriz es embajadora de buena voluntad de la Unesco, con quien trabaja en favor de la integración y de los derechos de los pueblos originarios en todo el mundo. Fue la gran protagonista de un acto con el que la Asamblea General de la ONU clausuró su Año Internacional de las Lenguas Indígenas. Aparicio relató su caso personal, cómo sus padres pre#rieron que creciese hablando únicamente español y no el idioma mixteco para evitar que fuera discriminada. "A todos nos habían privado de

mirar el mundo desde los ojos de estas lenguas, que poco a poco se estaban extinguiendo sin que nosotros tuviéramos la oportunidad de conocerlas. Pero la culpa no era totalmente de nuestros padres. Ellos sólo estaban asegurando nuestro futuro", explicó. A ella, señaló, el cine fue el que le dio la oportunidad de "luchar" para que se respete a los indígenas "como al resto de las personas". "Porque somos iguales. No seres distintos o extraños como nos hacen sentir cuando nos observan con extrañeza por nuestra vestimenta hecha con nuestras propias manos o por esos tonos tan extravagantes de nuestra piel morena", subrayó. Aparicio recalcó que su gran objetivo como embajadora de la Unesco es ayudar a que se conozca más de las comunidades indígenas, porque "la ignorancia de un tema siempre nos lleva a discriminar". Se trata, insistió, de fomentar el respeto y conseguir "que ninguna niña y niño crezca avergonzado de sus raíces, que sepa que hablar una lengua indígena es motivo de orgullo". "En cada lengua habita una historia única e irrepetible", recalcó la in-

térprete mexicana ante el hemiciclo de la Asamblea General. Allí, Aparicio pidió a los gobernantes que no detengan sus acciones para proteger los idiomas indígenas a la conclusión de este año, sino que las sigue impulsando "para no perder más de nuestra historia". Naciones Unidas eligió 2019 como Año Internacional de las Lenguas Indígenas en un intento por llamar la atención sobre la rápida desaparición de muchos de estos idiomas. "Hoy más que nunca es necesario continuar trabajando para preservar, revitalizar y promover las lenguas indígenas", señaló este martes el ministro de Cultura de Ecuador, Juan Fernando Velasco Torres, uno de los copresidentes del comité organizador del Año Internacional. En la misma línea, el presidente de la Asamblea General de la ONU, Tijjani Muhammad-Bande, recalcó que el "statu quo es grave", con únicamente un 6 por ciento de la población mundial hablando las alrededor de cuatro mil lenguas indígenas que sobreviven. "Es importante que nos dediquemos de nuevo a la causa de promover estas lenguas. Debemos ser conscientes que las lenguas son conocimientos cientí#cos, indicios de sabiduría y prácticas comunitarias que mueven civilizaciones de una etapa a otra", señaló.

Luke Skywalker: un granjero huérfano que se convirtió en el mayor Jedi de la galaxia. Renunció a la Fuerza y se convirtió en un ermitaño después de que sus esfuerzos por entrenar a nuevos jedis fracasaron. Dio su vida para ayudar a la Resistencia a escapar al #nal de "El último Jedi" (2017). Leia Organa: antes princesa y líder de la Alianza Rebelde, la hermana de Luke Skywalker y madre del villano Kylo Ren es ahora una general y jefe de la Resistencia. Han Solo: un contrabandista que se unió a la

Alianza Rebelde con su #el nave espacial, el Halcón Milenario. Separado de Leia, reapareció en 2015 con "El despertar de la fuerza", donde fue asesinado por su hijo. Chewbacca: un wookiee peludo, cariñoso pero con una gran fuerza, que fue copiloto de Han Solo y su socio en actividades de contrabando. Darth Vader: un villano enmascarado y uno de los personajes más reconocidas de la historia del cine. Originalmente llamado Anakin Skywalker, fue el padre de Luke y Leia. Murió salvando a su hijo del Emperador en "El retorno del Jedi" (1983). Lando Calrissian: un playboy y apostador, que inicialmente traicionó a su amigo Han Solo antes de unirse a la Alianza Rebelde, eventualmente llegando al rango de general. C-3PO: un androide constantemente nervioso, programado para la etiqueta y el protocolo, con dominio de seis millones de idiomas, y por lo general en desacuerdo con las decisiones de su valiente amigo mecánico R2D2. R2-D2: un ingenioso y excéntrico droide conocido por sus silbidos y pitidos.

¿Quién es quién en el universo "Star Wars"? Emperor Palpatine: maestro de Vader, que gobernó el malvado Imperio galáctico antes de ser aparentemente asesinado por su discípulo. Pero su voz aparece en los tráilers de "El ascenso de Skywalker"... Rey: una chatarrera (pepenadora) que creció en un cementerio de naves espacial en el planeta Jakku, pero que es poderosa con la Fuerza. Mucho se ha especulado sobre su pasado desde que apareció por primera vez en "El despertar de la fuerza", aunque en "Los últimos Jedi" se le convence para admita que, lejos de ser de linaje real, sus padres eran insigni#cantes "don nadies". Finn: un stormtrooper renegado que, conmocionado por la crueldad del Primer Orden, desertó para convertirse en soldado de la Resistencia, donde se hizo amigo de Rey. Poe Dameron: se describe a sí mismo como "el mejor piloto de la galaxia". También se unió a la Resistencia, pero frecuentemente

desobedece las órdenes de Leia y lideró un motín fallido antes de redimirse en "Los últimos Jedi". Kylo Ren: anteriormente conocido como Ben Solo, el hijo de Leia y Han se volvió al lado oscuro después de que su maestro Jedi Luke, temeroso de su poder, apareciera como si quisiera atacarlo con su sable láser. Ahora es un villano enmascarado con un sable de tres hojas que se parece a su abuelo Darth Vader. Líder supremo Snoke: jefe Supremo del Primer Orden con un rostro deforme y aterrador, que fue asesinado por su aprendiz en "Los últimos Jedi". BB-8: pequeño androide esférico con una personalidad tan valiente como la de R2-D2. Rose Tico: una mecánica de la Resistencia que inicialmente llama a Finn desertor, pero luego se hace amiga de él y sus compañeros en "Los últimos Jedi".
