he Democratic party was in a festive mood after the House of Representatives passed a bill granting legal status to students who immigrated to the United States illegally.

But thanks to the constant “Les Miserables” style tug of war that governs every decision made in the Senate in American history, that just may never happen. The Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act (The "DREAM Act") is a piece of proposed federal legislation in the United States that was first introduced in the United States Senate on August 1, 2001 and most recently re-introduced there and the United States House of Representatives on March 26, 2009. This bill would provide certain illegal and deportable alien students who graduate from US high schools, who are of good moral character, arrived in the U.S. illegally as minors, and have been in the country continuously and illegally for at least five years prior to the bill's enactment, the opportunity to earn conditional permanent residency if they complete two years in the military or two years at a four year institution of higher learning. The students would obtain temporary residency for a six year period. Within the six year period, a qualified student must have "acquired a degree from an institution of higher education in the United States or [have] completed at least 2 years, in good standing, in a program for a bachelor's degree or higher degree in the United States," or have "served in the uniformed services for at least 2 years and, if discharged, [have]

received an honorable discharge." Military enlistment contracts require an eight year commitment, with active duty commitments typically between four and six years, but as low as two years. "Any alien whose permanent resident status is terminated [according to the terms of the Act] shall return to the immigration status the alien had immediately prior to receiving conditional permanent resident status under this Act." Candidates may have trouble meeting the criteria of that last stipulation as the term’s definition may fluctuate depending on who is determining what constitutes “good” and “moral”, and even “character”. So far adultery, embezzlement, shameless desecration of family values and a gaping lack of general consideration for human beings would not appear to prevent illegal aliens from moving forward with the application process. Once able to verify eligibility, the individual would have to apply formally, though, at this point, as the legislation has not yet passed the application format remains unknown. Government officials speculate that the first round of applications will consist of a vicious game of pin the tail on the donkey where a small, blunt pin will be replaced with a jagged, rusty blade, fol-

lowed by a Martha Washington wig making contest, all to be scheduled after a night of sleep deprivation and a thin six-day diet of Four Loko and craisins. Once the candidate has been approved and granted conditional permanent residency the individual would either have to enroll in an institution of higher education or enlist in the United States Military. Republicans responded to the expedited procedures employed by Democratic leaders to bring the bill to a vote unsmilingly. Texas Republic, Lamar Smith, said the bill “encourages fraud and more illegal immigration on a massive scale” according to The New York Times. When the house passed the bill illegal immigrant students celebrated the faraway, once unfathomable concept of gaining legal status in the country in which many of them were born Many of these students demonstrated devotion to the process through marches, hunger strikes, sit-in protests, and some went as far as to send samples of their blood to lawmakers. Lead sponsor of the bill, Howard L. Berman, envisioned an opportunity for hardworking, earnest, talented individuals to be granted equal status in a country where their unique skills and capabilities could be utilized and appreciated.

By Javier Palomarez President & CEO USHCC

This week, our elected officials are presented with the occasion to pass legislation, The DREAM Act that will propel the economic recovery of our country by providing our youth the opportunity to realize the American dream. The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) urges the passage of The DREAM Act. The USHCC serves as the umbrella organization for over 200 local chambers across our country, representing the interest of Hispanic businesses that generate nearly $400 billion in revenue annually – businesses whose continued prosperity relies on today’s youth and tomorrow’s entrepreneurs, doctors, lawyers, scientists and engineers. The DREAM Act is a perfect example that today the American “DREAM” is still alive and well in our nation. If passed, this historical bill will provide thousands of youngsters the opportunity to continue their education and/or serve our nation. As we work together towards the economic recovery of our country, it is important that our hard-working and promising youth be part of the solution. Recent studies show that The DREAM Act will increase revenues in our communities. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimate of The DREAM Act shows that the legislation will increase revenues by $2.3 billion in the 2011-2020 period. After accounting for spending, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) estimate that the bill will reduce deficits by about $1.4 billion over the 2011-2020 period. According to a recent study conducted by the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), students impacted by The DREAM Act could add between $1.4 to $3.6 trillion in taxable income to our economy over the course of their careers, depending on how many ultimately gain legal status. This income is substantially higher than the income they would earn without a college education. Further, The DREAM Act provides a vast return on money that our country has already invested while preparing our country for the global economy. The students who will benefit under The DREAM Act have been raised and educated in the U.S. and state and local taxpayers have already invested in the education of these children in elementary and secondary school. Today’s global economy requires an educated and skilled workforce capable of acquiring, creating, and distributing knowledge. The DREAM Act will play a significant role in the nation’s efforts to have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world by 2020 and will create a group of talented, multi-lingual and multi-cultural workers that will help America compete with innovators throughout the world. As national, regional and local representatives for nearly three million Hispanic-owned businesses nationwide, the USHCC encourages the members of our United States Senate, House of Representatives and our country’s leaders to look past political differences and collaborate in the passage of The DREAM Act. We remain confident that these citizens will help continue to make our country a leader in the global economy.

Esta fecha nació de un modo más que especial. Era una noche de 1965. Ben Molar estaba parado en la esquina del tango, esquina que, según sus palabras, "es la que mis amigos Francisco Pacránico y Celedonio Flores hicieron que se llamara Corrientes y Esmeralda...". Iba camino de la casa de Julio De Caro para festejar su cumpleaños cuando le surgió la gran idea: asoció la fecha de nacimiento de De Caro con la de Carlos Gardel. Cayó en la cuenta de que, además de ser las dos grandes vertientes, eran los dos grandes creadores nacionales.

No obstante, para diciembre del 2011, el sistema aspira colocar en red al menos 200 cooperativas y 600 estructuras financieras al servicio no solo de migrantes sino para un amplio espectro de usuarios nacionales en los lugares más recónditos de la geografía ecuatoriana.

Con este nuevo sistema los familiares de migrantes ya no necesitarán desplazarse grandes distancias a centros urbanos, con el riesgo que ello implica, para recibir los envíos de dinero, pues éstas podrán ser pagadas en cualquier cantón o parroquia en donde exista una cooperativa de ahorro y crédito, una pequeña caja de ahorro o un banco comunal. En cinco minutos el beneficiario en Ecuador podrá efectivizar su operación y el familiar en condición de migrante, irregular o no, podrá usar una inmensa red de agentes captadores en los EEUU para sus envíos, a un costo menor a los vigentes tanto en el mercado americano, como ecuatoriano. Se espera en el futuro implementar este servicio para el envío de remesas desde España e Italia.

tem, she said, stating that it disproportionately affects people of color.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Supreme Court grappled Dec. 8 over whether the state of Arizona has authority to implement standards and penalties on employers who knowingly hire undocumented workers.

The system issues “tentative non-confirmation” checks to applicants whom employers suspect are undocumented before confirming their legal status. Tumlin said the assumption has proven inaccurate, according to documented cases, and would add further to the rise of discrimination as it discourages potential legal residents.

The hour-long hearing brought attention to the burdening issue of federal versus state powers. The eight participating justices heard arguments on Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting, a case highlighting the Legal Arizona’s Workers Act, which was signed into law in 2007 by former Gov. Janet Napolitano, who now serves as Secretary of Homeland Security. The law requires all employers to participate in E-Verify, an employment verification database system. It also allows the state to revoke business licenses of those who intentionally hire undocumented workers. Involvement in E-Verify is voluntary under federal law. “The bottom line is that we believe if the (federal) government isn’t going to do the job, Arizona is going to do the job and we16are faced with a crisis,” current Gov. Jan Brewer told reporters after the hearing. “In regards to today’s hearing, certainly we do issue licenses and if we giveth, we can taketh away and that’s what we’re hoping.”

Other arguments were made against state preemption because it conflicts with a 1986 federal ruling prohibiting states from taking action against employers unless they were convicted of violating the federal law. However, there is a clause in the Immigration Reform and Control Act that allows state governments latitude to take civil action when licensing businesses. “The bottom line here is this is a statute that was enacted 21 years ago and structured the relationships between the federal government and the state government,” said Carter G. Phillips, Washington lawyer who represented the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “Maricopa County is going to send off people to investigate and try to adjudicate these Helth claims.”

E-verify is an internet-based system that allows employers to use information reported on an I-9 Form, Employment Eligibility Verification, to determine an individual’s authorization to work in the United States. It is limited to new hires only.

Counter arguments were made by civil rights groups that the law is one-sided. They claimed it fails to offer protections against discrimination.

If the Supreme Court decides to uphold the state law, it would give states broader authority when handling immigration matters. With Arizona’s dwindling economy, this might discourage new business investments. Brewer disagrees, stating implementing the sanctions are a smart way to do business.

Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, National Foundation for Infectious Diseases, Families Fighting Flu

NEW YORK, /PRNewswire/ -- On Friday, December 10, in observance of National Influenza Vaccination Week, Mediaplanet Publishing released a Holiday Health Guide to targeted markets in USA Today. The report will be distributed to over 1.1 million readers with contributions from Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, National Foundation for Infectious Diseases, Families Fighting Flu, and Alliance for Consumer Education. Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America Provides Clarity

Cold, flu, and allergy symptoms are strikingly similar and therefore, can be quite perplexing. While we often dismiss these symptoms as being "just a cold," it could be something more serious. AAFA highlights the distinct differences between these illnesses to dispel confusion and ensure a healthy holiday.

One Family's Fight Against Flu

Tips on Staying Healthy According to the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases, the flu afflicts 60 million Americans each year and causes 36,000 deaths: "To prevent influenza, place your bet on vaccinating your family," advises Dr. Carol J. Baker, previous president of the NFID. Healthy Home Solutions During the winter, we escape the cold weather by retreating indoors. In our homes, we may be confronted with germs and allergens, which can cause illness and put a damper on holiday festivities. AAFA and the Alliance for Consumer Education provide instruction on creating a healthier home environment.

After the untimely death of their four year-old daughter, Richard and Alissa Kanowitz lead the fight against influenza. Along with other families that had experienced similar loss, they started Families Fighting Flu, a nationwide organization that is designed to "educate, motivate, and vaccinate." "Get yourself and your children vaccinated for influenza each and every year," says Kanowitz. "There's nothing else that can stop influenza or limit its harmful effects better than vaccination."

Obesity Organizations Encouraged by Positive Outcome for New Treatment Option

In a recent study, the costs related to treating obesityrelated medical conditions were reported to be $168 billion dollars, representing 17 percent of total medical costs in the U.S. Research has clearly documented the harmful health effects of excess body weight, which increases risk for conditions including diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, hip and knee arthritis, lowback pain, and depression. Importantly, many of these weight-related conditions are significantly improved by weight losses of as little as 5-10% of total body weight.

para prevenir fraudes y proteger tus ahorros. ¿Qué preguntas hacer?

Durante los años 2007, 2008 y 2009 se ofrecieron libremente al público en general inversiones fantasiosas que prometían grandes rentabilidades y con bajo riesgo en toda América Latina y España. Estas promesas se apropiaron poco a poco del dinero de millones de ahorradores. Muchos individuos incluso se endeudaron para poner a producir el dinero por medio de éstas atractivas e inexplicables ofertas de inversión; en la mayoría de los casos relacionados con inversiones en el mercado forex.

La forma de captar fondos de los ahorradores se hace en la mayoría de las veces por medio de un discurso audaz y simple, ofreciendo ganancias atractivas con la prometedora y garantizada frase INVERSION CON POCO RIESGO y alta rentabilidad. La forma más fácil de captar la atención de un estafador se

hace por medio de un allegado, familiar o colega, que promete replicar el modelo que está funcionando. Un ahorrador es considerado alguien quien ha trabajado décadas construyendo su patrimonio, el foco de atención de los estafadores es captar en pocos meses (algunos años) el dinero para luego desaparecer. Una vez se esfuma el dinero, esos mismos amigos que ofrecían poco riesgo o inversión garantizada, no contestan el teléfono, ni correos electrónicos y lo que es aún peor, siguen creyendo que fue culpa del estado o de grandes corporaciones que desean apropiarse de oportunidades de los pobres.

La inteligencia emocional es un concepto reciente de la psicología, que se define como: “Proceso y resultado de aprender a percibir, reconocer y regular las emociones”. Esta definición se explica mejor, desde un famoso experimento llamado el test Marshmallow que consiste en ofrecer un premio comestible a un niño de cuatro años con la promesa de que si es capaz de esperar cierto tiempo sin comerlo obtendrá otro premio mayor. Para visualizar el video entra en el siguiente enlace: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWW1vpz1ybo.

Ahora bien si traducimos esta situación a nuestra economía familiar, encontramos que muchos de nosotros nos comemos el Marshmellow antes de tiempo. La plata que nos ingresa por concepto de salario u otras entradas, es gastada de manera rápida dejando nuestra economía con un saldo en rojo. Esta situación se presenta principalmente en esta época del año, que es la navidad, donde nuestro comportamiento está manejado por nuestras emociones. Estos gastos pueden ser los básicos del hogar, pero pueden también ser gastos innecesarios, como comprar aparatos electrónicos, regalos a familiares, viajes o ropa con precios fuera del alcance de nuestro bolsillo.

A la edad de cuatro años, un Marshmallow es lo suficientemente tentador para esperar para ganarse el segundo. No todos los niños esperan, y según los estudios llevados a cabo se ha demostrado estadísticamente que quienes pasan el test suelen alcanzar mayor madurez económica y éxito en

trol de nuestros gastos, atrapándonos en un callejón sin salida, al que solo podemos escapar comprando y gastando nuestro dinero. Por ejemplo, los regalos de navidad. Todas las personas quieren lo que esta de moda o lo que la última tendencia muestre (juguetes, videojuegos, ropa), para no sentirse rechazados por la sociedad. Se puede decir que el manejo de la economía familiar esta relacionado en gran medida con la capacidad que tiene una persona en manejar sus emociones o de adquirir y fortalecer la Inteligencia Emocional. Para esto es recomendable hacer los siguientes ejercicios: * Evalúe cuales son las consecuencias que usted cree que se desencadenaran si usted no satisface las necesidades de su grupo social.

Dé prioridad a los necesarios. * No confíe en las promociones tentadoras que se presentan fácil de obtener a cambio de altas tasas de intereses.

A little over a year ago, frequent flier Luke Dudley launched LuggageLimits.com, a website for frustrated travelers, featuring a handy-dandy, flightspecific calculator that figures out how much money different airlines charge for baggage fees. By typing in the airline, the departure airport and the arrival airport into the calculator, users can compare and contrast baggage fees across more than 175 airlines for free at any given time. A pretty cool and helpful tool, considering airline baggage fees have continued to steadily increase since they were implemented a few years ago. In fact, The New York Times reports that so far this year, airlines have made $1.7 billion off baggage fees alone, since most major carriers now charge anywhere between $15 and $35 per bag. Given those stats, online baggage-fee calculator -- which is also a new iPhone app -- may be more useful than ever these days, especially with the holiday travel season in full swing. Dudley, a regular air traveler, doesn't want jet-setters to go through the same traumatic baggage dilemma he experienced a few years ago while trying to fly back to America from an extended stay in Australia. When Dudley and his girlfriend tried to board their plane to come home via an Asian airline, they were unexpectedly told that they'd be charged per kilogram for their excess baggage, resulting in an extra fee of nearly $500. "I immediately chased our friends

down in the airport parking lot and begged them to ship our suitcases home for us by mail. When I worked out the math later, I figured out it would've been cheaper to buy a whole other plane ticket or upgrade to first class rather than paying the baggage fee," he recalled. Dudley said he was caught off guard by the hefty baggage fee because when they flew to Australia, the American airline they used allowed two free bags per person. He had no idea baggage fees differed so much from airline to airline. With that in mind, Dudley said he was inspired to create LuggageLimits so others could educate themselves about airline baggage policies in a quick, simple, user-friendly manner. "It's an easy way to get all of the information fast and analyze your different options for airlines on the spot. I'm constantly updating the calculations to reflect changing baggage fees. It's a mammoth task, but I monitor the information continuously," he said. As of now, Dudley said the American airline with the best baggage policy, by far, is Southwest Airlines, since it still allows two free bags per customer. JetBlue Airways still gives travelers one bag for free. "Those are the two airlines going

against the grain right now. All other American airlines charge extra for bags," Dudley said. "Every time I'm at the airport, I see someone rummaging through their bags on the floor, trying to adjust the contents so they won't be over the weight limit. Frazzled travelers are a captive audience for airline baggage fees because there's not much else they can do at that point other than pay the fee," Dudley lamented. "You can't just leave your bags behind." With no other options, Dudley believes uninformed travelers are painted into a corner. He said it doesn't help that most airlines fail to disclose detailed information about extra baggage fees when customers buy their plane tickets, resulting in an unpleasant surprise tab at the airport. Of course, the more resourceful travelers could pull a similar move as Dudley and find alternative ways to get their gear from point A to point B. Dudley said savvy travelers could figure out cheap ways to ship their items to their destination ahead of time, especially bulkier goods like golf clubs. "You could also wear all of your clothes on the flight instead of packing them. If you can wear three pairs of jeans and five sweaters comfortably on board, then go for it," he said with a laugh.

UPS Expands Photo ID

Requirement for Retail Shipping

U

nited Parcel Service is requiring photo identification for retail shipping as it expands security during its peak season after two parcel bombs were intercepted in October. 

 The world's largest package delivery company, which expects a 7.5 percent rise to about 430 million deliveries this holiday season, said on Tuesday that retail customers will not be permitted to ship without a

government-issued picture ID at the UPS Store, Mail Boxes Etc and authorized shipping outlets worldwide.

"Since retail centers experience a significant increase in business from occasional shippers during the busy holidays, this enhancement adds a prudent step in our multi-layered approach to security," Dale Hayes, UPS vice president of small business and retail marketing, said in a statement.

The Atlanta-based company will add "additional

security precautions as necessary," he said.

 The photo ID policy has been used at UPS Customer Centers since 2005.

Under the new policy, retail customers without a pre-printed attached shipping label who do not present a government-issued photo ID cannot use UPS services, the company said.

In October, security officials in Britain and Dubai intercepted two parcel bombs being sent from Yemen to the United States in what President Barack Obama

called "a credible terrorist threat."

One of the packages was found on a UPS cargo plane at East Midlands Airport, about 160 miles (260 km) north of London. The other was found at a FedEx Corp facility in Dubai.

UPS has said it expects deliveries to reach 24 million worldwide on Dec. 22, matching last year's busiest day. That holiday volume would be up 60 percent from a typical day.

Familiares de migrantes ahora podrán cobrar sus remesas en cajas de ahorro

l Banco Central del Ecuador, (BCE) en conjunto con con el Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo (BID), el Fondo Multilateral de Inversiones (FOMIN) y la Red Nacional de Finanzas Populares (RENAFIPSE), ponen a disposición de los migrantes que residen fuera del país, el producto “BCE-RIA Canal Alternativo de Distribución de Remesas para Pequeños Intermediarios Financieros Ecuatorianos” a través del cual nuestros compatriotas podrán enviar sus remesas directamente a sus comunidades, zonas rurales y urbano marginales donde exista una pequeña cooperativa o caja de ahorro y crédito.

Adicionalmente, durante el proceso se incorporará a todas las cooperativas de ahorro y crédito reguladas por el Ministerio de Inclusión Económica y Social, MIES, que hayan calificado en el Sistema Nacional de Pagos del BCE, y que actualmente son 64. No obstante, para diciembre del 2011, el sistema aspira colocar en red al menos 200 cooperativas y 600 estructuras financieras al servicio no solo de migrantes sino para un amplio espectro de usuarios nacionales en los lugares más recónditos de la geografía ecuatoriana.

Con este nuevo sistema los familiares de migrantes ya no necesitarán desplazarse grandes distancias a centros urbanos, con el riesgo que ello implica, para recibir los envíos de dinero, pues éstas podrán ser pagadas en cualquier cantón o parroquia en donde exista una cooperativa de ahorro y crédito, una pequeña caja de ahorro o un banco comunal. En cinco minutos el beneficiario en Ecuador podrá efectivizar su operación y el familiar en condición de migrante, irregular o no, podrá usar una inmensa red de agentes captadores en los EEUU para sus envíos, a un costo menor a los vigentes tanto en el mercado americano, como ecuatoriano. Se espera en el futuro implementar este servicio para el envío de remesas desde España e Italia. Para concretar esta propuesta el Banco Central del Ecua-

internacional del TANGO

Ben Molar impulsó la instauración del 'Día Nacional del Tango', que se festeja en todo el mundo cada 11 de diciembre, en conmemoración a las fechas de nacimiento de los creadores de dos vertientes del tango: "La Voz" (Carlos Gardel, el zorzal criollo, ídolo y figura representativa del tango) y "La Música" (Julio De Caro, gran director de orquesta y renovador del género).

Esta fecha nació de un modo más que especial. Era una noche de 1965. Ben Molar estaba parado en la esquina del tango, esquina que, según sus palabras, "es la que mis amigos Francisco Pacránico y Celedonio Flores hicieron que se llamara Corrientes y Esmeralda...". Iba camino de la casa de Julio De Caro para festejar su cumpleaños cuando le surgió la gran idea: asoció la fecha de nacimiento de De Caro con la de Carlos Gardel. Cayó en la cuenta de que, además de ser las dos grandes vertientes, eran los dos grandes creadores nacionales. Presentó entonces la propuesta al Secretario de Cultura de la Municipalidad de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires, Ricardo T. Freixá, quien le pidió la conformidad de las entidades artísticas. Ben Molar consiguió así la conformidad de Sadaic, Argen-

tores, Sade, Casa del Teatro, Sindicato Argentino de Músicos, Unión Argentina de Artistas de Variedades, Academia Porteña del Lunfardo, Radio Rivadavia, Fundación Banco Mercantil, La Gardeliana, Asociación Argentina de Actores y Asociación Amigos de la Calle Corrientes. Once años más tarde, después de mucho recorrer y de observar cómo sus pedidos quedaban en cajones oficiales, amenazó cordialmente al Secretario de Cultura de la Municipalidad de Buenos Aires, Ricardo Freixa, con hacer una gran movilización radial, televisiva y gráfica anunciando la organización de un festival monstruo en el Luna Park en apoyo del 'Día del Tango'. Así, junto con una delegación de la Asociación Amigos de la Calle Corrientes, le pidió a Tito Lectoure el Luna Park para el 11 de diciembre.

07 A las dos horas del ultimátum se produjo el milagro: la promulgación del decreto anhelado durante tantos años. Así, el 29 de noviembre de 1977 Ben Molar recibió la noticia de que había sido firmado el Decreto Nº 5830/77 de la Municipalidad de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires. El 11 de diciembre el festival se realizó con la presencia enfervorizada de espectadores que celebraron el anuncio de ese merecido 'Día del Tango' y vivaron de pie a sus máximos ídolos. Estuvieron presentes los más grandes músicos, orquestas, cantantes, animadores, locutores, periodistas y personalidades vinculadas con el tango. Esa noche, Julio De Caro recibió muy emocionado en el escenario el aplauso de unas 15 mil personas que cantaron su cumpleaños.

"Parks is excited to team up with the New York Rangers and Live Positively, CocaCola to launch a new, free indoor street hockey program for New York City youth

across the city," said Commissioner Benepe. "The program will teach kids hockey skills, strategies and rules, and emphasize the importance of leading an active, healthy life. Whether kids are hockey novices or have some experience under their belt, these clinics will improve their game. I encourage all kids to visit a recreation center and sign up to participate." "I am delighted that we are dropping the puck to begin this free instructional youth hockey program here in my Lower Manhattan Assembly district," said Speaker Silver. "Regular exercise and a nutritional diet are essential to good health and this is a message we need to instill in all of our young people every day and in every way. I commend Commissioner Benepe, the New York Rangers, and Coca Cola for establishing this program and for their commitment to the well-being of our children and our community." "The New York Rangers are dedicated to establishing community awareness and interest in the sport of hockey through a variety of community programs and events that reach more than 5,500 youth annually," said Jacobs. "We are proud to launch this new street hockey program with NYC Parks & Recreation and presented by Coca-Cola that will introduce the sport of hockey to hundreds of youth and encourage a healthy lifestyle."

"Coca-Cola is proud to support programs that help to make a positive impact on our communities and to help families find fun ways to lead active, healthy lifestyles," said Cushman. "Our partnership with Parks & Recreation and the Rangers helps New York City young people to be active and learn about the importance of energy balance in a meaningful and fun way." The hockey clinics will focus on introducing youth to the sport of hockey and teaching them the importance of exercising and eating a balanced diet. Sports instruction will focus on individual skills, team participation, and fundamentals of the game such as passing, shooting and stickhandling. All participants will receive an official jersey, Rangers gift bag and basic hockey skills playbook. Nutrition workshops will be offered to participants to learn more about living a healthy, active lifestyle. Participants may walk-in to clinics; no pre-registration is required, each clinic will have a maximum of 50 participants. Clinics will be held at ten recreation centers throughout the city and will run for eight weeks, starting from today through the end of January.

SUPREME COURT TO DECIDE ARIZONA EMPLOYMENT CASE By Raisa Camargo Hispanic Link News Service

tem, she said, stating that it disproportionately affects people of color.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Supreme Court grappled Dec. 8 over whether the state of Arizona has authority to implement standards and penalties on employers who knowingly hire undocumented workers.

The system issues “tentative non-confirmation” checks to applicants whom employers suspect are undocumented before confirming their legal status. Tumlin said the assumption has proven inaccurate, according to documented cases, and would add further to the rise of discrimination as it discourages potential legal residents.

The hour-long hearing brought attention to the burdening issue of federal versus state powers. The eight participating justices heard arguments on Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting, a case highlighting the Legal Arizona’s Workers Act, which was signed into law in 2007 by former Gov. Janet Napolitano, who now serves as Secretary of Homeland Security. The law requires all employers to participate in E-Verify, an employment verification database system. It also allows the state to revoke business licenses of those who intentionally hire undocumented workers. Involvement in E-Verify is voluntary under federal law. “The bottom line is that we believe if the (federal) government isn’t going to do the job, Arizona is going to do the job and we are faced with a crisis,” current Gov. Jan Brewer told reporters after the hearing. “In regards to today’s hearing, certainly we do issue licenses and if we giveth, we can taketh away and that’s what we’re hoping.” E-verify is an internet-based system that allows employers to use information reported on an I-9 Form, Employment Eligibility Verification, to determine an individual’s authorization to work in the United States. It is limited to new hires only.

Other arguments were made against state preemption because it conflicts with a 1986 federal ruling prohibiting states from taking action against employers unless they were convicted of violating the federal law. However, there is a clause in the Immigration Reform and Control Act that allows state governments latitude to take civil action when licensing businesses. “The bottom line here is this is a statute that was enacted 21 years ago and structured the relationships between the federal government and the state government,” said Carter G. Phillips, Washington lawyer who represented the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “Maricopa County is going to send off people to investigate and try to adjudicate these claims.” He added that the balance Congress struck between the protections on both sides will be “completely dashed.” The Justices are expected to reach a decision on the case early next year. Justice Elena Kagan recused herself from participating.

Counter arguments were made by civil rights groups that the law is one-sided. They claimed it fails to offer protections against discrimination.

If the Supreme Court decides to uphold the state law, it would give states broader authority when handling immigration matters. With Arizona’s dwindling economy, this might discourage new business investments. Brewer disagrees, stating implementing the sanctions are a smart way to do business.

Karen Tumlin is the managing attorney at the National Immigration Law Center and council for the petitioners against Arizona’s sanctions’ law. There are scores of errors found in the E-verify sys-

Brewer told Hispanic Link that SB1070, which gives the state immigration enforcement powers, hasn’t seriously damaged Arizona’s economy. Although there were some conventions cancelled, the

hotel and tourism industry is moving forward, she said, adding the undocumented workforce has cost the state a lot of money.

Obesity Organizations Encouraged by Positive Outcome for New Treatment Option

The Obesity Action Coalition (OAC), The Obesity Society (TOS) and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) found encouragement in the outcome of today's advisory committee hearing, favoring approval for the first new obesity treatment in more than 10 years.

Today, the FDA Endocrine and Metabolic Advisory Panel voted 13-7 for approval for Contrave, a new treatment for obesity. In response to these decisions, Joe Nadglowski, OAC President and CEO said, "The OAC is encouraged because this is the first indication in some time that a new treatment can receive a favorable hearing from FDA. Treating obesity is a complex problem requiring many tools in the toolbox." Jennifer Lovejoy, Ph.D., President of TOS, commented, "The FDA Advisory Panel carefully weighed the research evidence in reaching this decision, and laid out future research needs. Today was a good example of how the FDA

can balance risks and benefits in reviewing new treatments."

Said Bruce Wolfe, MD, FASMBS, President of the ASMBS, "The federal government and medical experts agree that obesity is the single biggest threat to America for the coming century, and the FDA can be part of the solution. We support Friday's decision on expanded indications for gastric banding, and we call on the FDA to adopt a comprehensive approach and define a clear path for innovation in all forms of treatment of this disease." Earlier this year, the FDA has held hearings on three obesity drugs in quick succession, with negative results for every treatment under review. In each of the hearings, Nadglowski noted, "We, as a society, must gain control of the obesity epidemic and begin helping those affected; however, we will continue to watch this epidemic spiral out of control if we do not address it with a multitude of treatment options, including effective pharmaceutical agents."

In a recent study, the costs related to treating obesityrelated medical conditions were reported to be $168 billion dollars, representing 17 percent of total medical costs in the U.S. Research has clearly documented the harmful health effects of excess body weight, which increases risk for conditions including diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, hip and knee arthritis, lowback pain, and depression. Importantly, many of these weight-related conditions are significantly improved by weight losses of as little as 5-10% of total body weight. "We greatly hope that the FDA will continue working with the pharmaceutical industry and utilize a fair and balanced approach moving forward weighing the well-documented benefits of treating obesity against the risks associated with any medication developed for the treatment of obesity. We are at a crucial crossroad where the time to develop safe and effective treatment options for those affected by the disease of obesity is now," said Nadglowski.

Foundation for Infectious Diseases Fighting Flu

NEW YORK, /PRNewswire/ in observance of National Influenza Vaccination Week, Mediaplanet Publishing released a Holiday Health Guide to targeted markets in USA Today. The report will be distributed to over 1.1 million readers with contributions from Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, National Foundation for Infectious Diseases, Families Fighting Flu, and Alliance for Consumer Education. Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America Provides Clarity

Cold, flu, and allergy symptoms are strikingly similar and therefore, can be quite perplexing. While we often dismiss these symptoms as being "just a cold," it could be something more serious. AAFA highlights the distinct differences between these illnesses to dispel confusion and ensure a healthy holiday.

Tips on Staying Healthy

According to the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases, the flu afflicts 60 million Americans each year and causes 36,000 deaths: "To prevent influenza, place your bet on vaccinating your family," advises Dr. Carol J. Baker, previous president of the NFID. Healthy Home Solutions During the winter, we escape the cold weather by retreating indoors. In our homes, we may be confronted with germs and allergens, which can cause illness and put a damper on holiday festivities. AAFA and the Alliance for Consumer Education provide instruction on creating a healthier home environment. One Family's Fight Against Flu

After the untimely death of their four year-old daughter, Richard and Alissa Kanowitz lead the fight against influenza. Along with other families that had experienced similar loss, they started Families Fighting Flu, a nationwide organization that is designed to "educate, motivate, and vaccinate." "Get yourself and your children vaccinated for influenza each and every year," says Kanowitz. "There's nothing else that can stop influenza or limit its harmful effects better than vaccination." In partnership with the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, National Foundation for Infectious Diseases, Families Fighting Flu, Alliance for Consumer Education, Wet Ones, Endust, NasalCare, Ocean Nasal, Boogie Wipes, Achooz, ThermalOn, Germ Guardian, SleepRight, Simply Saline, Nozin, Indie Candy, and SinuPulse Elite.

La importancia de la educación financiera

para prevenir fraudes y proteger tus ahorros. ¿Qué preguntas hacer?

Durante los años 2007, 2008 y 2009 se ofrecieron libremente al público en general inversiones fantasiosas que prometían grandes rentabilidades y con bajo riesgo en toda América Latina y España. Estas promesas se apropiaron poco a poco del dinero de millones de ahorradores. Muchos individuos incluso se endeudaron para poner a producir el dinero por medio de éstas atractivas e inexplicables ofertas de inversión; en la mayoría de los casos relacionados con inversiones en el mercado forex.

La forma de captar fondos de los ahorradores se hace en la mayoría de las veces por medio de un discurso audaz y simple, ofreciendo ganancias atractivas con la prometedora y garantizada frase INVERSION CON POCO RIESGO y alta rentabilidad. La forma más fácil de captar la atención de un estafador se

hace por medio de un allegado, familiar o colega, que promete replicar el modelo que está funcionando. Un ahorrador es considerado alguien quien ha trabajado décadas construyendo su patrimonio, el foco de atención de los estafadores es captar en pocos meses (algunos años) el dinero para luego desaparecer. Una vez se esfuma el dinero, esos mismos amigos que ofrecían poco riesgo o inversión garantizada, no contestan el teléfono, ni correos electrónicos y lo que es aún peor, siguen creyendo que fue culpa del estado o de grandes corporaciones que desean apropiarse de oportunidades de los pobres.

Algunos incrédulos siguen buscando, maravillosas y fugaces inversiones en donde puedan poner a trabajar el dinero y esperar a que por su propia cuenta se reproduzca. Si crees que la educación financiera cuesta mucho, deberías conocer cuánto cuesta la ignorancia financiera.

Existen millones de oportunidades en el mundo, el internet y las comunicaciones abren diariamente las puertas a todo tipo de oportunidades de negocio. El camino hacia el éxito está lleno de intrigas y retos. No hay camino de lleno flores sin obstáculos. Por tal motivo Inverpedia, aconseja que debes cuidar muy bien tu dinero, educarte financieramente, hacer las preguntas correctas, estudiar y entender muy bien cualquier negocio que te propongan y tomar la decisión de iniciar tu camino hacia el éxito personal. Las preguntas que debes hacer ante cualquier oferta de inversión son las siguientes: 1. ¿Están autorizados para captar fondos por parte de las autoridades reguladoras? 2.

¿Cuál es el riesgo de la inversión?

La inteligencia emocional y la economia familiar Si la respuesta es: NO HAY RIESGO, entonces debes sospechar de un potencial fraude. 3. ¿Cuánto tiempo debe permanecer mi inversión para producir resultados?

¿En qué consiste la inversión? Si 4. no entiendes la inversión, lo mejor es no invertir. Hoy en día existen reguladores en cada país que pueden informarte sobre cualquier tipo de actividad financiera, empresa, individuo que te ofrezca algún tipo de inversión. A continuación una lista de cada ente regulador y su respectivo país. Estados Unidos: http://www.ftc.gov/espanol

Después de leer este título, los lectores se preguntarán: ¿Qué relación tiene un término financiero con otro de la Psicología?

etapas posteriores de la vida.

La inteligencia emocional es un concepto reciente de la psicología, que se define como: “Proceso y resultado de aprender a percibir, reconocer y regular las emociones”. Esta definición se explica mejor, desde un famoso experimento llamado el test Marshmallow que consiste en ofrecer un premio comestible a un niño de cuatro años con la promesa de que si es capaz de esperar cierto tiempo sin comerlo obtendrá otro premio mayor. Para visualizar el video entra en el siguiente enlace: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWW1vpz1ybo.

Ahora bien si traducimos esta situación a nuestra economía familiar, encontramos que muchos de nosotros nos comemos el Marshmellow antes de tiempo. La plata que nos ingresa por concepto de salario u otras entradas, es gastada de manera rápida dejando nuestra economía con un saldo en rojo. Esta situación se presenta principalmente en esta época del año, que es la navidad, donde nuestro comportamiento está manejado por nuestras emociones. Estos gastos pueden ser los básicos del hogar, pero pueden también ser gastos innecesarios, como comprar aparatos electrónicos, regalos a familiares, viajes o ropa con precios fuera del alcance de nuestro bolsillo.

A la edad de cuatro años, un Marshmallow es lo suficientemente tentador para esperar para ganarse el segundo. No todos los niños esperan, y según los estudios llevados a cabo se ha demostrado estadísticamente que quienes pasan el test suelen alcanzar mayor madurez económica y éxito en

Este funcionamiento psicológico de manejar nuestras finanzas a partir de nuestras emociones es conocido por las empresas de publicidad y marketing, que buscan atribuirle deseos y necesidades humanas a los productos. Estas estrategias nos hacen perder un poco elcon-

trol de nuestros gastos, atrapándonos en un callejón sin salida, al que solo podemos escapar comprando y gastando nuestro dinero. Por ejemplo, los regalos de navidad. Todas las personas quieren lo que esta de moda o lo que la última tendencia muestre (juguetes, videojuegos, ropa), para no sentirse rechazados por la sociedad. Se puede decir que el manejo de la economía familiar esta relacionado en gran medida con la capacidad que tiene una persona en manejar sus emociones o de adquirir y fortalecer la Inteligencia Emocional. Para esto es recomendable hacer los siguientes ejercicios: * Evalúe cuales son las consecuencias que usted cree que se desencadenaran si usted no satisface las necesidades de su grupo social. Póngalas a prueba, ¿Será más importante tener unos ahorros o quedar bien con las demás personas? * Póngase de acuerdo con su pareja, sobre cuales son los gastos necesarios y los innecesarios. Dé prioridad a los necesarios. * No confíe en las promociones tentadoras que se presentan fácil de obtener a cambio de altas tasas de intereses.
