3 FEBRUARY 07-13, 2014 EL OBSERVADOR OPINION 3 Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR PUBLIHSER You said, Before my time in office is done, I (President Obama) want to be able to fix our broken immigration system, ensure equal pay for equal work for women, and pass common sense budgets that do right by middle class families. Mr. President: you must address the question: How are inter-generational poverty cycles broken? You and Michelle, both come from the hood where you personally dealt with poverty in Chicago. You have an idea of what is required. The effort to eliminate poverty is historical. The Bible records that Christ said, Blessed are the poor, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. President Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR) created New Deal programs to generate jobs for the unemployed (1930 s). President Lyndon B. Johnson (LBJ) initiated the 1964 War on Poverty which was the unofficial name for legislation addressing the national 19% poverty rate. The Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO) administered the local application of federal funds targeting poverty. Today, you have the opportunity to establish the GREAT SOCIETY envisioned. LBJ and Congress expanded the government s role in education and health care as poverty reduction strategies. These policies are a continuation of FDR s New Deal and the Four Freedoms: freedom of speech and expression; freedom of worship; freedom from want; and freedom from fear (FDR, State of Union speech, January 6,1941). The popularity of a war on poverty waned after the 1960 s. Deregulation, growing criticism of, and opposition to, the welfare state, and an ideological shift to reducing federal aid to impoverished people in the 1980 s and 1990 s resulted in the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act of 1996, which, as claimed President Bill Clinton, ended welfare as we know it. The decline of support for the Great Society as a policy may be attributed to its success since fewer people feared hunger, sickness, and ignorance. Additionally, fewer people were concerned with ensuring a minimum standard for all citizens per Mazlow s hierarchy of needs theory. The legacy of the War on Poverty policy initiatives continues to exist in such federal programs as Head Start, Volunteers in Service to America, Job Corps, and TRIO. The TRIO Programs are federally-funded programs dedicated to helping first generation, low-income students succeed in their precollege performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits. TRIO included Upward Bound (math & science); Educational Talent Search and Post-Baccalaureate Achievement---the pursuit of excellence through empowerment of participants. All of these prior efforts add up to a launching platform for the next series of deployments against poverty. Today, American multi-national corporations (MNC s) need to become supporters of these programs simply by payment of their fair share of taxes plus altruistic contributions. Their goods and services benefit from transit on roads, seaways, airports, etc., currently supported by those of us who continue to pay our fair share of personal income taxes. The current state is that We, the people are providing infrastructural services for free to those who practice tax avoidance so we end up subsidizing these MNC s. Mr. President, This is simply wrong, immoral and unethical.---let s insist on a new sense of propriety and appropriateness---it is the fair thing to do. A new sense of appropriateness and propriety requires adjustments by executive action and legislation addressing: A) All who benefit from doing business in America, must sustain its public education systems, commerce, and Great Society s ideals. B) Initiate a comprehensive study of the role of robotics, automation and cybernetics (computers & IT technology) on the production of goods and services while employing fewer workers. C) Encouraged the use of IT devices which permit each student to learn at his/her individual pace. D) All must benefit from America s abundant natural wealth (potable water, arable land, deposits of minerals and crude oil). The concept of ownership thereof must also include accountable responsibility for stewardship which sustains the common weal. And E) A path to a living income for families which permits participation in a consumer economy, both domestic and global. Mr. President, Let s define a road to a living income for all American families which eliminates all impoverishment. You have successfully ended the War in Iraq; are about to end the War in Afghanistan; you have favored use of diplomacy before military actions. Now is the time to address American poverty along with the mitigation of global poverty. When all individuals can have the means to make personal choices, then a truly vibrant economy on this globe will be created, with America leading the way to appropriate enjoyment of the natural resources this universe provides. David Gonzales SPECIAL TO EL OBSERVADOR The prosperity of a country should benefit all, not only a few at the top. Pope Francis and President Obama both believe that income inequality is a major problem, and that everyone deserves the opportunity for a decent life, not only the wealthy. But right now, it seems that the rich have more than their fair share. In fact, in a speech given by the President this past December, he stated that the top 10% of Americans take 51% of the nation s income, while only 3% went to the neediest 20% of the population. The President declared income inequality to be the defining challenge of our time and said he would devote the rest of his presidency to reducing this unfairness. Pope Francis has also decried the growing chasm between the rich and everyone else, and made the trenchant observation that trickle-down economics, a theory in which wealth created at the top trickles to the bottom and makes everyone better off, does not, in fact, work that way. The poor wait and hope, but never feel the trickle. (Trickle-down economics is often associated with the Republican Party, though the Pope did not mention this, as the concept began in earnest under President Reagan in the 1980 s. Pope Francis got quite a few Republicans upset with his remarks, some of whom even called him a Marxist and a socialist. The Pope replied that although he knows some Marxists who are good people, he in fact doesn t adhere to the socialist doctrine). Pope Francis used another colorful metaphor to describe the false expectations of trickledown economics-- the promise was that when the glass was full, it would overflow, benefitting the poor. But what happens instead, is that when the glass is full, it magically gets bigger and nothing ever comes out for the poor. How true the Pope s words are! The Pope also stated that the effectiveness of the trickle-down system has never been confirmed by the facts and has created a globalization of indifference. There are several things President Obama wants to do to reduce income inequality. One is to raise the federal minimum wage from its current $7.50 per hour to $10.10 an hour by the year Many studies show that raising the minimum wage helps immensely in getting people out of poverty. (As an aside, a number of rich corporations pay their workers such low wages that the workers need to use government programs, such as food stamps, in order to make ends meet. Raising the minimum wage would help put a stop to this highly questionable practice as well). President Obama also points to The American Care Act aka ObamaCare as helping the poor and all Americans, as people now do not have to worry about being able to afford medical care. This is a huge advantage for everyone, including those who were previously uninsured or lived in fear of having their policies cancelled after an illness. In addition, insurance companies can no longer deny policies to those with pre-existing conditions, such as congenital heart defects and asthma, among others. As expected, the Republican Party opposes raising the minimum wage and also opposes ObamaCare. Also, as expected, many Republicans don t even think income inequality exists, but as both President Obama and the Pope emphasize, income inequality is an insidious wrong that needs to be righted. The Pope says that the battle can be won by ensuring that all people, especially the poor, have access to education, health care and above all, employment. The Pope and President Obama have the same vision, a vision that benefits everyone.

4 4 COMMUNITY EL OBSERVADOR FEBRUARY 07-13, 2014 Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR Concussions of the brain, especially those inflicted during a sports game, such as football, are now being discussed publicly. A class action lawsuit, initiated by former football players against the National Football Leagues was recently adjudicated with the outcome that NFL has formed a dedicated escrow fund to assist those former players who now demonstrate long-term brain concussion outcomes. A recent TV broadcast displayed a clip in which a parent said, In all these years we have talked about (sports) injuries; talked about what our limits were, for example concussions. We decided that after their third concussion, they are done. That was it. And the kids know that. This was a clip from a show called Friday Night Live (Tuesdays, Esquire Network) which followed five youth football teams In the San Antonio, Texas area. Commentator Chris Hayes said, this show is incredibly disturbing. I think it is unregulated youth football. It is not even Pop Warner. It is an even less regulated sports enterprise. President Obama said, I would not let my son play football. These guys know what they are doing. They know what they are buying into. It is no longer a secret. You are now talking about professionals who are getting compensated. And then there is the questions of 12 year-olds. A discussion moderated by Chris Hayes, followed wih former professional football players Roman Oben and Mike Pesca. Should 12 year olds be running around knocking heads together when the amount of evidence we have about concussions is pretty much inconclusive. What do you think that might be? Roman Oben commented, From an NFL standpoint, they are fining guys; the refs are throwing flags left and right; and they are trying to make the game safer. That will trickle down to the 7 to 8 year olds. By the time one of those kids is lucky enough to makes it to the NFL, which is one of 5,000 kids, the game is going to be a lot safer. Hayes continued, But many kids are not making it to the NFL, however, the question still remains. The reality is that lots of repeated sub-concussive impacts to the head over time have a real effect on brains. There is a quantifiable level of risk there. So what about the kids who play in youth football leagues? Mike Pesca (former commentator, NPR) said, Those coaches in that clip are an abomination. The parents must check their bios before letting them coach their kids. They are not the loving, concerned coaches which help kids learn to develop their motor skills; how to use proper techniques; how to play as a team member. Those coaches want to win at all costs; they tell their kids to stick it to their competitor. They may be striking out at a societal problem which is that kids are coddled; kids are weak. But I think that they represent a bigger societal problem, which is that these adult coaches have no sense of proportion nor propriety. Roman Oben: In 2001, my oldest son was born. My wife and I decided he would not play contact sports, especially tackle football, until after he was twelve years old and was physically developed enough to have the motor skills to take the abuse of contact sports. Then he could do all the sports---football, soccer, basketball, baseball, etc.---to build a foundation of coordination and motor skills. That was before all the recent knowledge about concussions. Parents have to understand why they allow their kids to play sports: setting goals; learning teamwork; learning how to deal with diversity; not for an end result. It seems that an age of 12 years is a good time to consider contact sports. Highlights of the parent s responsibility are: A) set limits to your child s contact sports involvement to when your child is ready physically and mentally. B) Evaluate the sports program and its coaches. C) Avoid those coaches who want victory at any cost. D) Know that SACRAMENTO California s infant mortality rate (IMR) has reached a record low, announced Dr. Ron Chapman, state health officer and director of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). In 2012, California s IMR was 4.5 infant deaths per 1,000 live births, lower than the rate of 4.8 in Infant mortality is defined as the number of deaths in infants less than one year of age. In 2012, there were 503,788 births in California and 2,247 infants died that year. The leading cause of infant death in 2012 was congenital malformations, followed by short gestation and low birth weight. Optimal infant health outcomes are influenced by a your child will learn team dynamics; communication; coordination; get a sense of belonging; develop motor skills by acquiring correct body mechanics and personal experience. The parents, child, coaches, local leagues, and the community are all involved. Local sports binds a community together. All need to be responsible and accountable for continuing assistance for those who are injured while playing any sport. woman s health even before she becomes pregnant, including avoidance of tobacco, alcohol and drugs, maintaining a healthy weight, and taking folic acid supplements, said Chapman. Early entry into prenatal care, genetic testing to identify health risks at birth, breastfeeding, childhood immunizations, and continuing proper nutrition through a baby s developing years all contribute to improving infant health outcomes. While the African American Infant Mortality Rate decreased from 10.5 infant deaths per 1,000 live births in 2011 to 9.8 in 2012, racial/ ethnic disparities in infant mortality persist. African American infant deaths occurred 2.6 times more frequently than Caucasian infant deaths in The Caucasian Infant Mortality Rate An outcome of injuries to our wounded warriors from the Mid-East is that much more is now known about the human brain. It is still an enigma. It uses some 20% of one s energy and requires sleep to recover from one s awake activities. Also, the human brain is continuously in a development mode, from conception to about age 26 when it reaches full maturity. Then it begins to slowly deteriorate with age and use/abuse. Many of its mysteries still need description. In a sense, the human brain is a biological computer which needs to be continuously programmed with information about morals, ethics, paradigms, facts, concepts, and logic. Today many damaged brains are assisted to recover through rehab therapy. Many mentally challenged individuals can be assisted with psychiatric drug prescriptions. Youthful brains recover well; older ones never recover. Cerebral-vascular accidents are serious events; brain concussions must be mitigated. decreased from 4.1 infant deaths per 1,000 live births in 2011 to 3.8 in The Hispanic Infant Mortality Rate also decreased from 4.9 infant deaths per 1,000 live births in 2011 to 4.7 in According to the most recent national statistics, California accounts for approximately one in every eight births nationally. In 2010, California had the seventh lowest Infant Mortality Rate among all 50 states and the lowest Infant Mortality Rate among the ten states with the largest number of births. The most recent (2011) national Infant Mortality Rate is 6.05 infant deaths per 1,000 live births. Many CDPH programs and initiatives target reduction of infant mortality.

5 FEBRUARY 07-13, 2014 EL OBSERVADOR EDUCATION 5 SACRAMENTO The number of students being suspended or expelled in California declined sharply during the last school year as more schools and districts put into place measures designed to keep young people in the classroom and learning, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced. Across the state, the total number of expulsions decreased by 12.3 percent, from 9,758 in to 8,562 in The total number of suspensions either in-school or out of school dropped 14.1 percent, from 709,596 in to 609,471 in Educators across California work hard to keep students in school and learning, Torlakson said. It can be a challenge to find the balance between maintaining a safe learning environment and giving young people the tools and opportunities they need to succeed. But we re working with schools and districts throughout the state to do exactly that. A review of almost every ethnic subgroup of students, particularly the larger subgroups, shows substantially fewer of them were suspended. Among African-American students, 53,187 were suspended in , down 5,606 or 9.5 percent from the year before. Among Hispanic students, 179,867 were suspended in , down 20,416 or 10.2 percent from the year before. Among white students, 68,913 were suspended, down 8,363 or 10.8 percent from the year before. Still, disparities exist in the rates of suspension. For example, African-American students make up 6.3 percent of total enrollment, but 16.2 percent of suspensions. Hispanic students make up 52.7 percent of total enrollment, but 54.6 percent of suspensions. White students make up 25.5 percent of total enrollment, but 20.9 percent of suspensions. This is the first time we have had this level of data to compare from one year to the next, and that s valuable information for districts as they consider their practices moving forward, Torlakson said. Although fewer students are being removed from the classroom in every demographic across the state, the rates remain troubling and show that educators and school communities have a long road ahead. Statewide, student defiance is an often reported reason for suspensions. This area also saw the largest declines. There were a total of 259,875 suspensions statewide for defiance in , down 81,237 or 23.8 percent, compared to the year before. There were a total of 8,562 expulsions for , of which defiance was the most serious offense in 495 of these expulsions, down 113 or 18.6 percent from the year before. Los Angeles Unified School District made major policy shifts and adopted a restorative justice program to teach students a set of principles and practices centered on promoting respect, taking responsibility, and strengthening relationships instead of suspending students for defiancerelated offenses, resulting in a 37.5 percent drop in suspensions and a 15.1 percent drop in expulsions. Vallejo City Unified School District also implemented practices revolving around restorative justice and school-wide positive behavioral interventions and supports, resulting in a 25 percent drop in suspensions. Napa Valley Unified School District implemented a school-wide positive behavior interventions and supports program as well, resulting in an 18.9 percent drop in suspensions and a 75.5 drop in expulsions.

6 6 HEALTH EL OBSERVADOR FEBRUARY 07-13, 2014 (NAPSM) La diabetes afecta a casi 26 millones de estadounidenses y los hispanos son más propensos a padecerla. Aunque es una de las enfermedades de mayor crecimiento en el país, hay maneras en las que usted puede protegerse. Esto es particularmente importante para los 79 millones de estadounidenses que tienen prediabetes, lo que significa que corren un alto riesgo de desa rro llar la diabetes tipo 2. Sin embargo, muchas personas desconocen la prevalencia de la diabetes. Según los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfer medades (CDC, por sus siglas en inglés), un cuarto de los estado unidenses diabéticos y el 90 por ciento de los prediabéticos, no son conscientes de que padecen la enfermedad. Para detener y controlar la condición, es necesario que la gente reconozca la conexión entre la diabetes y la salud bucal. Los investigadores han demostrado que existe un vínculo entre las enfermedades de las encías y un conjunto de condiciones de salud graves, incluida la diabetes. Los diabéticos tienen cuatro veces más probabilidades de sufrir enfermedades de las encías, según los Institutos Nacionales de la Salud. Los siguientes cinco consejos le permitirán prevenir y tratar la diabetes y mejorar la salud bucal: Esté atento a los factores de riesgo y las señales de advertencia. Los factores de riesgo comunes para la diabetes incluyen presión arterial alta, estilo de vida sedentario, sobrepeso u obesidad, ser mayor de 45 años de edad o tener antecedentes familiares de diabetes. Las señales de advertencia frecuentes incluyen aumento del apetito, visión borrosa y hormigueo o insensibilidad en las manos, piernas y pies. Identifique maneras de controlar la condición. Hay muchas maneras de controlar la diabetes y prediabetes con más eficacia, entre ellas, hacer actividad física, además de establecer y lograr metas de aptitud física, beber abundante cantidad de agua, reducir bocadillos con muchas calorías y bebidas endulza das con azúcar, y elegir alimentos integrales en lugar de productos de granos procesados. Mejore la salud bucal. Practique una buena higiene bucodental, que incluya el cepillado y uso de hilo dental todos los días, así como el uso de un enjuague bucal. Las investigaciones demuestran que reducir la inflamación bucal puede disminuir los niveles de glucosa en la sangre de las personas diabéticas, e Los millones de estadounidenses con diabetes y prediabetes no deberían demorar el tratamiento y deberían además prestar atención especial a tener dientes y encías sanas. incluso ayuda a mejorar su salud general. Visite a su dentista. Las vi si tas frecuentes al dentista también son importantes, ya sea para prevenir o tratar enfermedades de las encías. De hecho, las personas diabéticas que recibieron cuidado dental tuvieron reclamos médicos netos anuales mucho más bajos que las personas que viven con diabetes y no recibieron ese tipo de cuidado, según un estudio reciente conducido por UnitedHealthcare. Busque apoyo. Hay recursos locales disponibles para ayudar a prevenir y controlar la diabetes. Por ejemplo, el Programa de Prevención de la Diabetes de la YMCA es un programa de intervención grupal en el estilo de vida de 16 semanas de duración que ayuda a reducir el riesgo de desarro llar diabetes tipo 2.

AMERICAN COUNSELING ASSOCIATION Should children be assigned tasks to do around the house their family chores? While most parents would say yes, it often becomes such a hassle to get kids to do what s asked of them that parents just let it slip. They shouldn t. Getting your kids to do assigned chores can be an important factor in helping them develop in positive ways. Chores are a way for a child to feel part of the family, and to gain a sense of contributing toward the family good. They provide early life lessons that make it easier for a person to feel like an active, contributing member of society later in life. Chores are also a means for learning about responsibility and meeting expectations, skills necessary for success in school and, eventually, the workplace. Household chores may involve simple activities, like making a bed daily or helping with the family pet, but the lessons derived from successfully completing family chores carry over into later life. Getting chores completed successfully, however, does require planning and work on the part of parents. It s especially important to assign chores that are appropriate for a child s age and abilities. You want to create the opportunity for successful completion and a positive experience. You also want to keep your expectations realistic. Act the perfectionist and find reason to criticize how every chore is completed and you re setting your child up for failure, unable to meet your expectations. At the same time, letting your child get away with little or no effort only teaches him or her to have low expectations and about his or her ability to perform. Talk with your child about setting up a chore system. Make it clear what the child s responsibilities are and what will be a measure of successful completion. Then develop a system of rewards for work well done that has met the agreed upon expectations. Take the time to monitor chore activities and to offer honest praise when work is done well. Don t make the mistake of only offering criticism for efforts that fall short. When a child can successfully complete chores and receive positive re-enforcement for doing the work well, it helps to build self-esteem and self-confidence. Start your child early in life to accept chores and do them well, and the result will be a confident, responsible child with stronger life skills.

7 FEBRUARY 07-13, 2014 EL OBSERVADOR COMMUNITY 7 Verónica T. Avendaño EL OBSERVADOR El concilio de abuso infantil de el condado de Santa Clara organizó un foro de la comunidad para discutir cómo el condado puede evitar el abuso infantil el pasado viernes 31 de Enero en San José, Calif. La meta de la discusión era buscar las necesidades de la comunidad con respecto a la prevención y la intervención del abuso infantil. También, el concilio quería la opinión de la comunidad para saber que métodos y recursos no están efectivos. El concilio invitó a los miembros de la comunidad y profesionales con experiencia con el abuso infantil a compartir sus ideas. Yo vengo aquí a aprender, dijo Luz Martin, residente de San José. Hay casos en los que la comunidad necesita alguna información, dijo Luz Martin, residente de San José. Martin comentó que no hay suficiente difusión para la comunidad hispana. Comentarios de los participantes como Martin se utilizarán como parte de una evaluación de las necesidades de la comunidad. También estamos haciendo encuestas de miembros de la junta directiva y los clientes de las agencias, dijo Christine Hagion-Rzepka, del comité de asignaciones de condado de Santa Clara. Haigon-Rzepka también dijo que después de recoger todos los datos, un informe, RFP (solicitud de propuesta) se escribirá. El informe indicara que programas van a recibir fondos. Los participantes de la discusión encontraron que la colaboración entre los grupos de apoyo, difusión en los medios, y la confidencialidad son los principales puntos de éxito en la prevención del abuso infantil. Los participantes también mencionaron que los programas escolares tienen éxito porque a veces los niños no saben que es el abuso o si esta dentro de su hogar. Algunos participantes hablaron sobre sus experiencias con el abuso infantil. Ellos apoyaron los programas escolares porque dijeron que los niños deben aprender la diferencia entre el buen trato y el abuso en un ambiente familiar. Aquellos participantes dijeron que si hubieran aprendido lo que es el abuso infantil en la escuela podrían haber recibido ayuda mucho antes. La discusión también mostro lo que el condado no esta haciendo para prevenir el abuso infantil. Muchos participantes dijeron que no hay suficiente fondos en varios programas que la comunidad necesita. Los participantes recomendaron que el condado debe de usar el poder de los medios sociales. Muchos de los participantes estuvieron de acuerdo en que se debe mejorar como las agencias hablan a las comunidades minoritarias. Un participante dijo que las agencias necesitan más entrenamiento cultural para interactuar mejor con miembros de las comunidades minoritarias. Siento que estos mensajes lo que está haciendo estas agencias, no llegan a mi comunidad dijo Martin. Martin dijo que en la comunidad hispana no hay un programa de radio ni anuncios en la televisión para informar la gente que estos recursos y agencias existen. En la comunidad hispana también culturalmente el abuso infantil es común. En nuestra cultura esto eso es muy normal como para de alguna forma dirigir a los niños disciplinarlos hacerlos que se portan bien, dijo Martin. Un padre que disciplina a sus hijos es considerado un buen padre, dijo María Isabel Guerrero, miembro del consejo del grupo Parents Helping Parents. Desafortunadamente las maneras de como hacerlo no son las adecuadas. Guerrero dijo que en la comunidad hispana hay un estigma en reportar el abuso. El dicho yo veo, yo callo es la mentalidad que mucho miembros de la comunidad hispana tienen. Tenemos que romper esa cadena estamos en una país donde hay recursos y si estamos aquí es para superarnos no solo para hacer dinero. Para superar para cumplir un sueño, y parte de ese sueño es hacer que nuestros hijos se superen [y] darles otro tipo de vida dijo Guerrero. Que podemos hacer? Cambiando nuestra manera de disciplinarlos y educarlos para hacerlo de la manera correcta. El informe estará listo en el otoño de 2014 y estará disponible en el sitio web del concilio infantil. El concilio continuará recolectando datos. [Hay mucho] que hay que hacer en lo que todos podemos hacer para reducir el abuso infantil, que es el propósito que podamos ver a los niños a salvo en nuestras comunidades y en sus familias y en sus hogares, dijo Haigon- Rzepka. Recursos Disponibles en California Governor Jerry Brown declared a state-wide drought emergency last week was the driest year on record for California. Among all our uncertainties, weather is one of the most basic. We can t control it. We can only live with it, and now we have to live with a very serious drought of uncertain duration, said Gov. Jerry Brown during his state of the state speech in January. The governor is asking for the state as a whole to reduce water usage by 20 percent. To help with the water usage reduction efforts, here are some basic tips: In the kitchen: -Only wash full loads of dishes in the dishwasher. -Fix all leaks. -Install a faucet aerators (call for a free aerator) -Let dishes soak first instead of letting the water run while scrubbing dishes. -Defrost food in the refrigerator instead of using hot running water. -Wash fruits and vegetables with a pot of water instead of using running water. -Use water from making pasta or washing fruits/vegetables to water the household plants. In the bathroom: -Turn the water off while washing your hair. -Take shorter showers, even 5 minutes shorter adds up. Most standard shower heads use 5.0 gallons per minute. -Fill the bathtub halfway or less. -Check your toilet annually for leaks. -While showering, collect water in a bucket. Turn the shower off when shaving and use the bucket of water collected. Outdoors: -Water your lawn early in the morning or later in the evening. -Adjust sprinklers to ensure they are only watering plants/lawns -Use a broom to clean sidewalks,patios, and porches.

8 8 BUSINESS EL OBSERVADOR FEBRUARY 07-13, 2014 (BPT) Small businesses comprise approximately 50 percent of the total working U.S. population. In 2011, non-employer small businesses alone generated $989.6 billion total revenues, according to Business Insider. Small businesses are vital to a thriving local community, a successful national economy and credited with establishing an overarching entrepreneurial spirit. So is the American dream. Employer-based small businesses include local restaurants, convenience stores, laundry mats, barber shops, and the list goes on. There are approximately 8 million of them in the U.S. today, Business Insider reports. What is one thing most of them have in common? They accept credit and debit cards as a means of payment. The electronic payment processing industry is a critical component for small, midsize and large businesses alike. All merchants depend on reliable, affordable electronic payment services to grow their businesses; however, some credit and debit card processors take advantage of small businesses that do not have large accounting and auditing teams to protect their interests. Rates can be easily misrepresented, fees can be hidden or inflated - and the numbers quickly add up. Understanding credit and debit card payment systems Not many people know or realize the intricate workings of credit card processing. Electronic payment processors establish the link between businesses and the card issuers, enabling the rapid approval of payments after a credit or debit card is swiped. A day or two later, funds are transmitted from the issuer to the merchant. Easy enough. So, what does a merchant pay for accepting cards? Interchange fees are the largest piece of the puzzle. This fee is paid by the merchant to the consumer s card issuer. A second interchange cost is charged by the card networks (e.g., MasterCard and Visa). The final portion is paid to the payment processor, which actually handles the transaction and provides customer service. Merchant/payment processor contracts can vary significantly, but in recent years most merchants prefer to be priced on an interchangeplus basis. This provides much greater transparency for the merchant by separating interchange fees - which should be billed at cost - from processor fees, which are negotiable. Interchange rates are public information, and they are not negotiable. Everyone - including businesses, governments, banks, utilities, etc. - pays the established interchange rates published by Visa, MasterCard and Discover. It should be a relatively transparent process. However, the complexity of the system allows opportunistic processors to misrepresent their charges to boost their profits. Misleading practices can include any of the following: * Hiding the processor s markups by inflating the stated interchange fees. * Charging merchants for security fees that provide no value, falsely claiming they are mandated. * Not passing on interchange fee reductions made by card brands. * Charging arbitrary fees such as re-underwriting fees, when no such action took place. * Charging merchants thousands of dollars to change the phone number in a point-ofsale (POS) system when merchants change processors to protect themselves from the scams. * Arbitrarily refusing to reset the phone number on POS devices when merchants decide to switch processors. The solution: education Unfortunately, payment processor pricing schemes are widespread. It is important to remember that these practices are not only unethical, but can often be illegal. While some credit card processing providers would do anything to make an extra buck at the expense of unaware small business owners, other companies put their clients first. Jason Alderman PRACTICAL MONEY En el Día de San Valentín, las emociones de la gente afloran por todos lados algunas personas están perdidamente enamoradas y quieren llenar a sus seres queridos de regalos, mientras que otras se deprimen por no tener, en ese momento, a nadie especial a su lado. Cualquiera sea su estado sentimental, algo de lo que todos debemos protegernos en este momento del año son los engaños. El Día de San Valentía saca lo mejor y lo peor del comportamiento humano. Nuestro impulso nos lleva a ser generosos y buscar el regalo ideal. Los ladrones cibernéticos lo saben y tienden trampas a los compradores desprevenidos. Y, como es de esperar, los sitios web de citas tienen una mayor actividad, con el correspondiente aumento de los estafadores sentimentales. Estos son algunos de los engaños más comunes que debemos evitar en el Día de San Valentín: Las tarjetas de saludos electrónicas son muy populares en cualquier época del año, especialmente cerca de alguna fiesta. Los estafadores cuentan con que la gente no presta atención cuando reciben un correo electrónico con un tema inocente como Alguien que conoces te ha enviado una tarjeta electrónica. A menos que esté seguro de que alguien le ha enviado una tarjeta electrónica, jamás haga clic en los links ni siga las instrucciones para descargar software para abrir el mensaje. Hay muchas chances de que, si lo hace, descargue un virus o malware en su computadora, condenándose a recibir infinitos correos basura o incluso poniendo en peligro su información personal o financiera. El día de San Valentín es el día del año de más trabajo para las florerías. Como mucha gente ahora ordena flores por Internet, estas compras son un blanco común para las estafas. Algunos consejos para elegir la florería: Asegúrese de que la dirección física, la información de contacto y los precios de la florería a la que le esté haciendo el pedido figuren en la página. Pague con tarjeta de crédito. De esta forma, si hay algún problema, puede rechazar el cargo con el emisor de su tarjeta. Si recibe un correo electrónico diciendo que hay algún problema con su pedido, llame a la florería para asegurarse de que sea legítima; no haga clic en ningún link podría ser malware. Tenga cuidado con los correos electrónicos y avisos en medios sociales que ofrecen grandes ofertas en otros regalos de San Valentín, como chocolates, joyas o lencería. A menos que ya haya hecho algún negocio con una empresa que tenga su dirección de correo electrónico legítimamente, desconfíe. Observe si la dirección web tiene algún error de tipeo comm en lugar de por ejemplo. No es coincidencia que los sitios web de citas estén más ocupados durante las vacaciones de invierno y más aún en el Día de San Valentín. Las personas solas tienen las defensas más bajas, lo que las vuelve vulnerables a los engaños sentimentales. Sin darse cuenta, las víctimas son inducidas a revelar información personal o financiera, o a prestar dinero que jamás volverán a ver. No estoy diciendo que no hay que buscar el amor por Internet en sitios de citas legítimos. Simplemente digo, tenga cuidado con estas señales: Desean seguir conversando fuera del sitio de citas de inmediato y usar un correo electrónico personal o mensajería instantánea lo mejor para evadir el control del Webmaster del sitio. Los perfiles que muestran en línea son demasiado buenos para ser verdad. Eso es probablemente porque los modifican para ajustarse a las preferencias que usted ha establecido. O, por el contrario, sus perfiles pueden ser sospechosamente imprecisos en cuanto a los detalles o sus fotos no parecen ser genuinas. Profesan amor muy rápidamente, incluso antes de hablarse o encontrarse personalmente. Dicen ser ciudadanos estadounidenses que están trabajando en el exterior, por lo general en la milicia. Quedan en encontrarse, pero repentinamente no pueden por algún problema familiar o laboral traumático, alguno que seguramente podrá resolverse con su dinero. En definitiva: No deje que sus emociones nublen su sentido común cuando se trata de cuestiones del corazón.

9 FEBRUARY 07-13, 2014 EL OBSERVADOR RECIPE 9 Make meal time a rich and historic experience for guests (while using leftover ingredients!) by creating the Peruvian Tacu-Tacu. Originally from Peru, the Tacu-Tacu is an African-inspired dish that originally consisted of left over rice and beans prepared with a side of fried bananas or fried eggs. The dish s history stems from African slaves that were brought to Peru during the Spanish ViceRoyalty. The African slaves were fed left overs, which consisted predominantly of beans and rice. The slaves created more flavoring by adding seasoning to the rice and beans which ultimately developed into what is now known as the Tacu-Tacu dish. Following years of being passed down from generation to generation, the Tacu-Tacu evolved into a savory and protein-rich dish that is still being created today.

10 10 COMMUNITY EL OBSERVADOR FEBRUARY 07-13, 2014 Veronica T. Avendaño EL OBSERVADOR Santa Clara county home care workers and labor leaders continued their campaign for a contract negotiation and fair wages this past Tuesday (February 4) morning by rallying inside the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors meeting. This board is not taking care of the people who care for us, said Luisa Blue, CEO of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 521 during the board meeting public comment. Our nation is aging. Because of this, homecare and personal care aides are among America s fastest growing workforce. They are also among our most poorly paid, continued Blue, who celebrated her 62nd birthday on Tuesday. Blue is a veteran organizer having helped the group form in the mid-nineties. She has experience in organizing home care workers in not only Santa Clara county but also in San Mateo and San Francisco. After Blue s public comment, county homecare workers, labor leaders, and clients left their seats to march through the halls of the county building, chanting for a better wage. Homecare workers in Santa Clara County are the lowest paid county employees, earning 65 percent below San Jose s official living wage recommendation. Last year, homecare workers earned an average annual income of $11,564. In 2013, the US Department of Labor issued two regulations for homecare workers: federal minimum wage as well as overtime protections. The overtime protection regulation allows for homecare workers to receive a federal mandated time and a half pay for any overtime hours effective January At the state level however, Governor Jerry Brown s proposed budget plan does not allow for homecare workers to receive overtime pay. Brown proposed a limit on the numbers of hours homecare workers may work inside any In Home Supportive Services (IHSS) home. Most of these folks take care of their family members. Many of them had other full time jobs that paid much better, but because a family member got sick or something happened to them, they quit their jobs to take care of their loved ones at home, said Blue. San Jose resident Ricarda Cortez is one of them. We work for our families, our children. We don t have have the same retirement benefits, said Cortez. We are fighting for our benefits and a better salary. The campaign will continue at the bargaining table said Blue. We ll see what happens at the bargaining table, if the board of supervisor are going to be serious. [Supervisors] Cortese and Chavez are serious. I don t know about the other three. Maria I. Gutierrez is just one of 17,000 homecare workers in Santa Clara County who is protesting for a better living wage. She chants with the crowd no justice, no peace, no contract, no peace. Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR Northwestern University college football players are attempting to organize themselves into a union and are meeting much resistance. They re attempting to be able to have collective bargaining/negotiation rights. The objective is to have college level football programs be responsible for the extended medical care costs of football injuries incurred while playing, since successful sports programs reap hugh earnings. With the growth of big-time college football in America, which generates more than $5 billion in annual revenues, the pretence that the players are student-athletes is becoming increasingly untenable for the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Recently, a group of football players announced their application to the US government to form a labor union, affiliated with the United Steelworkers, to acquire collective bargaining rights as recognized university employees. Currently, college athletes can be given tuition scholarships, free room and board, and treatment from sports physicians. Former Northwestern quarterback Kain Colter, who has led the charge, says the initial goals of the union would be to ensure that scholarships can t be revoked for medical issues, compensation for the full cost of attending college, greater awareness and prevention of (brain) concussion injuries that plague the sport, and insurance coverage for treatment of sports-related injuries that linger long after a player has finished school. He also did not rule out having players receive salaries from their schools. To state the players are unpaid is misleading. Most of the Division 1 players are on athletic scholarships and receive many services having economic value. The action of these few Northwestern players in signing the cards, asking for a labor union, will ripple through the world of college sports for weeks and cause waves of discussion and consideration, writes ESPN s Lester Munson. Their action will be the prime topic of discussion whenever, and wherever, other players, coaches, athletic directors, and university presidents and board members gather. Things may never be the same. El Observador believes all ethnic communities need to support this unionizing event which is a work in progress today.

11 FEBRUARY 07-13, 2014 EL OBSERVADOR COMMUNITY 11 Alimento, Amor Viernes 7 de febrero 7pm 11pm Cinthia Rodríguez EL OBSERVADOR La exposición de Maíz y Mas De Madre a Monstruo en el Movimiento de Arte y Cultura Latino Americana ( MACLA ) está llegando a su cierre. Se estará presentando hasta el 14 de febrero durante el regreso del anticipado Primer Viernes Paseo de Arte. Esta exposición se adoptó particularmente para un programa aun más grande relacionado con alimentos que se ha estado llevando acabo en MACLA desde el otoño, dijo Catherine Nueva España, coordinador de prensa para MACLA. Maíz y Mas no sólo toca el tema de alimentos, sino temas en torno a la cultura, la identidad y la diferencia entre los países desarrollados donde hay abundancia de alimentos y los países que no disponen de las mismas fuentes de alimento. MACLA ha explorado estas diferentes temas en los últimos meses. MACLA invitó a un par de artistas de diferentes partes de los Estados Unidos para hablar del tema del maíz. En particular, su lugar muy especial en las Américas en tiempos precolombinos ya que fue utilizado para rituales y se le conocía como un alimento sagrado. El maíz es un cultivo que existió en las Américas desde hace mucho tiempo y conlleva muchas cosas culturales e históricas, dijo Nueva España. Se les pidió a los artistas que exploraran estos diferentes temas y los artistas proporcionaron una amplia variedad de piezas de arte muy interesantes Piezas en la exposición incluye una mandala hecha de diferentes tipos de maíz nativo, una Virgen María hecha de maíz nativo, y tortillas de maíz que asemejan las caras de autoras famosas y mujeres latinas. Las Tortillas de Milagro, por la artista Yolanda Guerra, basada en San José, son una versión actualizada y feminista de la tortilla Otami. Ellas rinden homenaje a las mujeres que han sido personalmente influyentes y a las mujeres que protegen y siguen el elemento vital de las costumbres culturales. Su trabajo también nos recuerda que a diferencia de hoy, donde comprar es fácil, las tortillas se hacían en casa. El arte de Guerra juega con la idea de la adivinación y los milagros espontáneos y muestra el contenido simbólico del maíz como cultivo - un fenómeno divino milagroso que garantiza el patrimonio cultural y la supervivencia humana. Ella estará en MACLA el 7 de febrero a las 7:00pm para hablar acerca de su trabajo y de la exposición. Para terminar su serie relacionada con los alimentos, MACLA contará con Amor, Alimento, Amor, el evento final es un esfuerzo de programación de meses de duración centrado en la comida, la cultura y la identidad. La producción sera presentada por Cocinero del Pueblo, un grupo de interpretación / educación sin fines de lucro, con Robert Karimi como Mero Cocinero el de febrero. El programa de cocina incluye un programa adecuado de cocción, una actuación de teatro, palabra hablada, y la interacción con el público. La idea es involucrar a los miembros de la audiencia y re-conectar con la cultura y recetas familiares con los hábitos de alimentación saludables y divertidas. Además de la serie, Robert Karimi va a hacer una demostración con un horno al aire libre en la Casa de Adobe Peralta, el sábado 8 de febrero a la 1:00pm.

Potential Museum Purchase (Museum purchase, Pritzker Fund for Photography). L Courtesy of the Peter Stackpole Estate. R: Dong Kingman, The Raised Bridge, ca Watercolor over graphite on wove paper. Bequest of James D. Hart SAN FRANCISCO Celebrating the completion of the new eastern span of the San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge (scheduled for September 2013), this exhibition presents a newly acquired group of photographs by Peter Stackpole ( ) documenting the bridge s original construction in the 1930s the first works by this important Bay Area photographer to enter the Museums collection. Scaling the dizzying heights of the unfinished structure over the course of three intense years, this young photographer moved freely among the construction workers, telling their story of death-defying labor in a series of striking photographs that record one of the most ambitious public works projects in California history. In the midst of the Great Depression, many artists were drawn to the spectacular site, inspired by the bridge s modern engineering, to capture its bold industrial forms and commemorate the heroism of the American workforce. This exhibition juxtaposes Stackpole s photographs with prints and drawings of the Bay Bridge construction by his contemporaries, many of whom earned their living under the auspices of San Francisco s Federal Art Project. Artists include Dong Kingman, Otis Oldfield, Arthur G. Murphy, George Booth Post, and John Stoll, The exhibition also features a small selection of original studies from the firm of renowned San Francisco architect Timothy Pflueger, who contributed to the design of the original Bay Bridge. Saving our planet with Bucky s ideas Kaira Portillo EL OBSERVADOR It is no secret that the current predominant way of life within mainstream society is threatening to pollute our planet to the point where it would be impossible for humans to survive. It is this context in which R.Buckminster Fuller: The History (and Mystery) of the Universe sheds light on our world like the break of dawn. This multimedia one-man show is based on the life and work of Bucky, a renowned 20 th century inter-disciplinary visionary who dedicated his life to designing sustainable solutions to global problems. Ron Campbell stars as Bucky Fuller in San Jose Rep s R. Buckminster Fuller: The History (and mystery) of the Universe, now- Feb. 23. Photo: Kevin Berne. Through creative lighting, projected still & moving images, colorful interactive props, and a bit of fog machine effects, this production at the Repertory Theatre takes you on an entertaining and educational journey of how Bucky became inspired to design and invent practical and ecologically friendly shelter, transportation, and energy to all people, not just the rich or powerful. He did not consider himself to be a scientist or architect or engineer, but rather all of the above. In fact, one of the most important messages from Bucky s work- portrayed by Ron Campbell s talented performance- is that human beings are complex creatures capable of accomplishing many great things within our lifetime, if we open our minds to thinking collectively, prioritizing living in harmony with nature, instead of just functioning as separate islands of communities competing to make money. Although this production is quite long, 2.5 hours (including a 20 minute intermission), it is well worth every minute. Go prepared with a satisfied stomach and enough rest so that you can pay the close attention this story deserves! One of the most fascinating inventions Bucky is famous for is the geodesic dome, which is basically a more efficient way of shelter construction. The geodesic dome is also a clever metaphor for Bucky s emphasis on holistic thinking, that is to take into consideration many points of views when analyzing an issue or trying to figure out a solution to a problem. The author/ director of this production, D.W. Jacobs, skillfully highlighted one of Bucky s main frustrations: how the powers-that-be try to distill the creative interdependent tendencies inherent in human beings into robotic conformities that only serve to create poverty, greed, and pollution. Many of us know about Albert Einstein but prior to attending this show, I had no idea who Bucky was. I was enlightened to discover that these two men actually ended up meeting because Bucky s ideas had left such an impression on Einstein! I definitely walked away feeling inspired about what I want contribute to healing Mother Earth. It all begins with one step; I urge you to take a seat and enjoy this show. SAN FRANCISCO Jointly organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA), Public Intimacy: Art and Other Ordinary Acts in South Africa brings together 25 artists and collectives who disrupt expected images of a country known through its apartheid history. The exhibition features an arc of artists who look to the intimate encounters of daily life to express the poetics and politics of the ordinary act, with work primarily from the last five years as well as photographic works that figure as historical precedents. On view at YBCA February 21 through June 29, 2014, Public Intimacy presents more than 200 works in a wide range of mediums, many of them making U.S. or West Coast debuts. The exhibition joins SFMO- MA s important and growing collection of South African photography with YBCA s multidisciplinary purview and continued exploration of the Global South. Significant documentary photography is paired with new photographs and work in other mediums, including video, painting, sculpture, performance, and publications, to reveal the multifaceted nuances of everyday life in a country still undergoing significant change. Coinciding with the 20th anniversary of democracy in South Africa, Public Intimacy looks at the way artists imagine present and future possibilities in South Africa. A new orientation emerges through close-up views of street interactions, portraiture, fashion and costume, unfamiliar public actions, and human imprints on the landscape. The exhibition s three curators Betti-Sue Hertz, director of visual arts at YBCA; Frank Smigiel, associate curator of public programs at SFMOMA; and Dominic Willsdon, Leanne and George Roberts Curator of Education and Public Programs at SFMOMA developed the show after visits to South Africa, where they met with artists, curators, and critics. The exhibition and a companion publication to be published in fall 2014 grew out of this research.

13 FEBRUARY 07-13, 2014 EL OBSERVADOR FASHION & BEAUTY 13 (BPT) Whether you re getting ready for a romantic evening out, or looking ahead to when sandal days are back again, treating your feet to a pedicure can help you look and feel your best - as long as you keep foot health front of mind. It s important to ensure your pedicure is done properly, whether you re doing it yourself at home or enjoying a professional treatment in a nail salon or spa. The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) offers some pedicure pointers to help you love how your feet look and feel: * Start with a good soak in warm water for at least five minutes. This will help soften calluses and prep feet for removing dry, rough skin. To exfoliate, use a pumice stone or foot file. Never use a foot razor to remove dead skin, and ban your pedicurist from using one on you. It s too easy for a quick slip-up that could cause permanent damage or lead to serious infection. * Shave your legs a day or two before your professional pedicure, but not the day of. Shaving can cause minor abrasions and fissures in the skin, allowing bacteria to enter while your feet soak or the nail technician handles your feet. A little bit of stubble won t bother her at all. * When doing a home pedicure, use toenail clippers with a straight edge and cut nails straight across. Avoid other cutting tools, such as manicure scissors, as they can increase the risk of ingrown nails. For salon pedicures, bring your own tools; shared tools can spread bacteria if they haven t been properly cleaned. Use an emery board to smooth and round nail edges. * Never permit a nail technician to cut or trim cuticles, which protect nail beds from bacteria. Instead, use a rubber cuticle pusher or liquid remover to gently push back cuticles just a little bit. Use a wooden or rubber manicure stick - never metal or anything sharp - to clean beneath nails. * Remove polish after it s been on for a while. Keeping nails polished for extended periods may promote fungal growth. Leave toe nails polish-free for a few days between pedicures. * Post pedicure, don t walk around in flimsy flip-flops, especially the ones salons sometimes give customers before they leave. They don t provide adequate protection or support for your feet. * Look for foot-friendly products that have earned the APMA s Seal of Acceptance or Approval. Podiatrists have evaluated these products and found them to be beneficial to foot health. Finally, never put up with foot pain. Discomfort and pain that lasts longer than several days could be a sign of a more serious problem or infection. Seek treatment from a podiatrist - the foot and ankle expert. (STATEPOINT) Losing weight to look good may be a great motivator. An even better motivator is to get healthier, as excess fat tissue breeds inflammation, which can contribute to many debilitating and deadly diseases. And according to many doctors, even just a modest amount of extra weight can be damaging to your health. When it comes to diets, if you ve tried them all and failed, some experts say that could be part of the problem. Most diet books and programs promise a quick fix for weight loss -- for example, avoiding all carbs, eating only raw foods or amping up protein. These fad diets show little respect for the fact that a well-balanced, nutritious diet is critical for our bodies to function properly, warns Dr. Jennifer Sacheck, an associate professor of Nutrition at Tufts University and coauthor of the book, Thinner this Year: A Diet and Exercise Program for Living Strong, Fit, and Sexy. In Thinner this Year, Sacheck, along with motivational speaker and co-author Chris Crowley, offer a laymen s explanation of the science of diet and exercise, believing that if people truly understand what s going on inside their bodies, then they re more likely to make long-term lifestyle changes. You don t need a fancy gadget and there is no single magic exercise, says Crowley. Health and wellness means a serious lifetime commitment to good nutrition and plenty of exercise. With that in mind, the writing duo is offering some tips for losing weight the healthy way and keeping it off for life: Make up your mind. Set your goal and go for it. This will mean embracing changes in your habits and routines. Exercise for the rest of your life. Stay motivated by keeping things interesting and changing your workout routine periodically. Try new exercise classes or sign up for a big race. Exercise works like crazy and it changes lives. Big time, says Crowley. Eat less and be mindful. Don t super-size yourself. At the same time, don t skip meals. Doing so can lower your metabolism and make you more susceptible to binge eating later. Don t eat dead food, -- food that is loaded with calories and offers little nutritional value. Skip or limit refined flour, refined sugar, high fat meat and solid fat. Eat healthy fats in moderation and avoid saturated and trans fat. Likewise, don t drink your calories. Instead, load up on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy Sustainable weight loss is no easy feat, but with motivation, dedication and hard work, you can feel better and live longer.

14 14 GREEN LIVING EL OBSERVADOR FEBRUARY 07-13, 2014 LEGAL CLASSIFIEDS Trying to get around in Cortland, Illinois on January 4, Credit: Michael Kappel, courtesy Flickr Roddy Scheer & Doug Moss EARTHTALK It s tempting to think that the cold air and snow outside augur the end of global warming, but don t rejoice yet. According to the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), weather and climate are two very different beasts: Weather is what s happening outside the door right now; today a snowstorm or a thunderstorm is approaching. Climate, on the other hand, is the pattern of weather measured over decades. Isolated weather events and even seasonal trends are not an indication of global warming s existence one way or another, and most climatologists agree that the carbon pollution we have been spewing into the atmosphere for the past century is leading to more frequent and intense storms of every kind and causing greater temperature swings all around the planet. In short, the harsh winter we are having shouldn t be viewed as a refutation of global warming, but rather as further evidence of a growing problem. There is a clear long-term global warming trend, while each individual year does not always show a temperature increase relative to the previous year, and some years show greater changes than others, reports the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The agency chalks up these year-to-year fluctuations to natural processes such as El Niño or volcanic eruptions, but points out that, regardless, the 20 warmest years on record have occurred since 1981, while the 10 warmest were in the past 12 years. And global average temperatures have risen by 1.4 F overall since the early 20th century. According to Becky Oskin of LiveScience.com, shrinking polar ice caps, as a result of global warming in recent decades, are one factor that may be contributing to the cold weather in North America this winter. One way the shrinking ice changes weather is by pushing winter air south, she reports. When the stored ocean heat gradually escapes in autumn, it changes the pattern of an atmospheric wind called the polar vortex, streaming frigid Arctic air into North America and Europe. Meanwhile, a 2012 study by researchers Jennifer Francis and Stephen Vavrus concluded that intense warming in the Arctic has caused changes to the jet stream that regulates air circulation around the planet, potentially leading to stronger winter storms hitting the eastern seaboard of the U.S. And what about all that snow? Hotter air around the globe causes more moisture to be held in the air than in prior seasons, reports UCS. When storms occur, this added moisture can fuel heavier precipitation in the form of more intense rain or snow. The U.S. is already enduring more intense rain and snowstorms, says the group: The amount of rain or snow falling in the heaviest one percent of storms has risen nearly 20 percent, averaged nationally almost three times the rate of increase in total precipitation between 1958 and And some regions of the country have seen as much as a 67 percent increase in the amount of rain or snow falling in the heaviest storms. And Oskin points out that while we may be bundling up and shoveling out in the U.S., it s turned into another scorcher of a summer in the Southern Hemisphere: 2013 was Australia s hottest year on record, and 2014 has started off even hotter, with temperatures soaring to 125 F and severe fire warnings issued in at least two states there. Apparently global warming is still on. (NAPS) The quality of the air in your home should always be a priority, but during the colder months it s particularly important to monitor it. The Problem One of the most common airquality problems in an indoor environment is particles in the air, such as allergens, viruses, bacteria and other contaminants. You have longer exposure to these particles when you re inside for a long time in the winter, and just because you can t see these pollut ants, it doesn t mean they re not there. These lightweight particles can stay suspended in midair unless properly removed, and smaller particles can sometimes cause the most adverse health effects. The human body s immune system is able to deal with a certain level of contaminants. However, once allergens or other airborne pollutants reach a threshold, negative health effects and allergic reactions can occur. When the temperature drops, people tend to spend more time indoors, which means more time sharing air in a confined area, said Kent Kuffner, indoor air quality product manager, Carrier. In addition, the air is notoriously harsh and dry in the winter months, so evaluate your home to ensure that the air quality inside is optimized no matter how severe the weather gets outside. What Can Be Done Fortunately, by reducing the contaminant levels of airborne particles through proper indoor air-quality technologies, these ONY S PLUMBING 20 yrs. experiecnce problems may be alleviated. Here are some hints on how: Air purifiers clean harmful microscopic airborne pathogens from the conditioned air and some even capture and kill them to prevent them from re-entering the home. Another common issue during the winter is dry air. Installing a humidifier can help maintain proper humidity during heating season and help you avoid itchy, cracked skin, dry nasal passages and static electricity. It may even reduce the drying that can damage wood furniture and flooring. An added benefit to properly humidified air is that it feels warmer than drier air, Kuffner said. When the humidity is right, you can actually lower your thermostat during heating season and stay more comfortable while saving on utility costs. Air infiltration is also a big concern. Today s homes are built for better energy efficiency, with tighter construction and less air infiltration. While that s great for maintaining temperatures, it means air can become stagnant and stale in your home, especially when you and your family are spending more time indoors. You need fresh air in your home and that s where a ventilator helps. It works with your heating and cooling system to allow clean, fresh outdoor air into your home without jeopardizing your comfort. Who Can Do It When evaluating your home s indoor air quality, it s important to discuss it with a certified heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) contractor.

MEXICAN MUSEUM EXHIBITION AT USF ROOFTOP SCULPTURE TERRACE THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES MONOLOGOS DE LA VAGINA FEB BRAVA THEATER, SAN FRANCISCO Quiero compartir mi felicidad por ser convocado no sólo para la segunda temporada de la serie, para la cual grabaré 15 capítulos. Además, también seré parte de uno de los más grandes sueños de mi vida, el ser coach de La voz kids, al lado de Natalia Jiménez y Prince Royce. Hay un sector al que le debo su aprecio, apoyo y admiración como son los niños y por eso estoy orgulloso de que me hayan invitado a La voz kids, por lo que el material para los niños, no sería de corte infantil, sino un par de canciones que tengan el estilo perfecto para ellos. Dijo que no fue nada fácil llegar al reconocimiento que hoy goza. Nuestra música no sólo ha logrado rebasar las barreras del tiempo y el espacio, hy llegado a ser importante para exponentes de otros géneros y la prueba es que el cantautor Prince Royce me invitó a ser parte de uno de sus conciertos en Puerto Rico, además de otros proyectos con Natalia Jiménez, Paulina Rubio y Enrique Iglesias. Detalló que el cantante español lo invitó a realizar en versión banda el tema Loco, mismo que hizo a ritmo de bachata con Romeo Santos.

17 FEBRUARY 07-13, 2014 EL OBSERVADOR MOVIES 17 The original 3D computer-animated story follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as The Special, the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared. Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, The Monuments Men is an action-thriller focusing on an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. It would be an impossible mission: with the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1 possibly hope to succeed? But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind s greatest achievements. Based on author Richelle Mead s worldwide bestselling series, Vampire Academy tells the legend of Rose Hathaway (Zoey Deutch) and Lissa Dragomir (Lucy Fry), two 17-year-old girls who attend a hidden boarding school for Moroi (mortal, peaceful Vampires) and Dhampirs (half-vampire/half-human guardians). Rose, a rebellious Guardian-in-training and her best friend, Lissa a royal vampire Princess - have been on the run when they are captured and returned to St.Vladamirs Academy, the very place where they believe their lives may be in most jeopardy. Thrust back into the perils of Moroi Society and high school, Lissa struggles to reclaim her status while Rose trains with her mentor and love-interest, Dimitri (Danila Kozlovsky), to guarantee her place as Lissa s guardian. Rose will sacrifice everything to protect Lissa from those who intend to exploit her from within the Academy walls and the Strigoi (immortal, evil vampires) who hunt her kind from outside its sanctuary.

18 18 SPORTS EL OBSERVADOR FEBRUARY 07-13, 2014 Miami, (NOTIMEX) - El ex jugador inglés David Beckham establecerá en Miami una franquicia de la MLS (Major League Soccer), anunció Don Garber, comisionado de liga. La llegada del equipo a Miami todavía depende de que un grupo de inversionistas privados que apoya al internacional inglés y ex jugador del LA Galaxy presente un proyecto viable de estadio para 25 mil personas. De esta manera, Beckham activa la opción que le dio la MLS de comprar una franquicia en 25 millones de dólares por debajo del precio, como parte de su contrato por haber participado varias temporadas en la liga. Entre sus socios se incluye el magnate de las telecomunicaciones el boliviano Marcelo Claure, de la empresa BrightStar de Miami, y su amigo Simon Fuller. Esta es la primera vez en la era moderna que un ex jugador se une al ranking de dueños, mencionó Garber en una multitudinaria rueda de prensa a las orillas de la Bahia de Biscayne. El nuevo equipo comensaría a jugar en 2016 o 2017, según funcionarios de la MLS. Pero aún con la poderosa atracción de Beckham, que atrajó a decenas de periodistas, el proyecto presenta riesgos, pues ni siquiera equipos como el campeón Miami Heat, de la NBA, pueden llenar el estadios en todos sus juegos. Creo que esta ciudad está lista para el futbol, dijo el ex astro del Manchester United, de Inglaterra, y del Real Madrid, de España, al asegurar que el estadio se construirá con fondos privados. Queremos hacer un equipo que sea global y que tenga una escuela de fuerzas básicas... no sólo traer jugadores de afuera, adelantó al señalar que ésta es la única manera de que algún día Estados Unidos gane la Copa del Mundo. La rueda de prensa se llevó a cabo en el Museo de Arte Pérez, a un costado del Puerto de Miami, donde el grupo Miami Beckham United, quiere construir el estadio. La construcción del estadio enfrenta un largo camino, pues la última vez que se construyó un estadio en la ciudad, el de los Marlines del béisbol de Grandes Ligas, fue financiado con fondos públicos y en parte eso contribuyó a la abrupta salida del alcalde del condado Miami-Dade. El sucesor, el alcalde Carlos Giménez, se encuentra en negociaciones con el grupo de Beckham. El deporte más popular del mundo viene a la ciudad más pequeña del mundo, declaró durante el anuncio. Además ha dicho que el estadio no recibirá fondo públicos. (NOTIMEX) La natación mexicana se encamina hacia los campeonatos mundiales de la especialidad de 2017 con una serie de eventos internacionales, entre ellos la reunión del Buro de la FINA a finales de este mes y el selectivo mundial de clavados rumbo a Nanjing 2014 en marzo entrante. El presidente de la Federación Mexicana de Natación (FMN), Kiril Todorov, mencionó que este 2014 será intenso para las disciplinas del país, encaminado a los Campeonatos Mundiales de Natación de En conferencia de prensa realizada en el Comité Olímpico Mexicano (COM), Todorov habló de las competencias internacionales que albergará México en estados como Jalisco, Quintana Roo y Nuevo León, en donde se verán a los atletas de las diferentes categorías de natación mexicana. De igual manera, se refirió a los selectivos internos para los Juegos Centroamericanos y del Caribe de Veracruz 2014, en donde en disciplinas como clavados y nado sincronizado se irá por todas las medallas en disputa debido a la calidad de los competidores locales. Con la presencia del Comité Ejecutivo de la FMN, el dirigente deportivo resaltó la importancia de contar con justas de alto nivel competitivo para el desarrollo de la natación en México y desde luego con el objetivo de sentar las bases para contar con competidores de calidad mundial. Todorov destacó el encuentro con el cual se abrirán las actividades internacionales de este año, la Conferencia Mundial FINA de Polo Acuático, a finales de este mes, y la Reunión del Buro de la FINA, el 1 y 2 de marzo venidero, ambas en Cancún, Quintana Roo. «Estos dos eventos son de relevancia para nuestro país, ya que estarán los mejores exponentes de polo acuático y, desde luego, se contará con la presencia del Buro de la FINA, entre ellos el presidente, Julio Maglione, quien encabezará los trabajos del organismo internacional», dijo. Destacó que para México el tener los Mundiales de Natación de 2017 representa la oportunidad de comenzar a formar a los nadadores que en el siguiente ciclo olímpico puedan pelear por las finales y, desde luego, consolidar el trabajo realizado hasta el momento. Agregó que por primera vez Manzanillo, Colima, será sede del Grand Prix de Aguas Abiertas, en marzo, y la Copa del Mundo de la especialidad, en abril; además de repetir Guanajuato con el Grand Prix de Clavados en mayo y Monterrey, Nuevo León, con una de las etapas de la Serie Mundial de Clavados, en junio. Pero sin duda, añadió, que como evento de relevancia próximo está el selectivo de clavados a los Juegos Olímpicos de la Juventud de Nanjing 2014, el cual está programado para el 1 y 2 de marzo venidero, en Guadalajara, Jalisco. «Tenemos un calendario nutrido de eventos internacionales y eso es un gusto porque se ha trabajado para conseguirlos», enfatizó. (NOTIMEX) La derrota de anoche por 2-1 ante Estudiantes Tecos, dentro del torneo de Copa MX, desató recriminaciones al interior del plantel de Chivas de Guadalajara, porque el revés vuelve a poner el equipo en difícil situación de credibilidad. Ellos tenían diez hombres y no podemos ser tan pasivos, eso se reflejó en el partido, dijo hoy el defensa Jesús Sánchez. Su análisis no quedó ahí, al exponer que no sirve de nada la actitud si no se gana, las desatenciones a la hora de marcar, a la hora de ser más intensos, no podemos dejar rematar tan solo a un jugador y por ahí nos cayó el gol. El zaguero hizo ver que pegó duro esta derrota en el plantel rojiblanco, el cual hacía intentos por levantarse de una crisis muy prologada. Estoy triste por la derrota, no supimos manejar el partido yendo arriba en el marcador. Ahora el equipo se alista para el encuentro de visita ante Puebla el próximo domingo, en la fecha seis del Torneo Clausura 2014, donde Chivas es lugar 12 con seis puntos, producto de un triunfo y tres empates, por una derrota.
