Cristo Rey: Part of the Solution for Education Today (VIDEO)

On January 20, Bay Area business professionals came to hear Fr. John Foley–founder and Rob Birdsell–president of the Cristo Rey Network speak about how an innovative educational business model can benefit San Francisco businesses while supporting the education of financially disadvantaged students.

“Nationally, education is in a state of crisis, but Cristo Rey provides us with a bit of hope,” explained Mr. Birdsell. “We are not the answer to the problem, but we are definitely part of the solution.”

All Cristo Rey students receive a quality college preparatory education and participate in a work study component, which finances a majority of the cost of their education. Corporations receive the equivalent of one full-time entry level employee while giving students real world experience, helping them grow in self-confidence and realize the relevance of their education. It is estimated that Cristo Rey students will earn over $30M towards their own education this year.

A 60 Minutes clip highlighting the Network was followed by details about the work-study program central to Cristo Rey. Representatives from Bay Area corporations such as Wells Fargo, Genentech, Swirl Integrated Marketing and Bechtel Corporation came to learn about how this innovative model grew into a nationwide network of 24 schools and 6,500 students.

“I was the biggest skeptic on whether this was feasible,” commented Fr. Foley, “but on the first day of work, corporations were calling and thanking us for sending the kids to work in their offices. We went from hiding under the table to 24 schools nationwide.” 83% of businesses hiring Cristo Rey students across the country have renewed their contracts for a second year.

Immaculate Conception Academy, an all-girls school in the Mission District of San Francisco, joined the Network in 2009 to further its mission of serving “the young, the poor and the vulnerable.” Students work at Bay Area corporations and last year 98% of students received ‘outstanding’ or ‘good’ on year-end performance evaluations.

“You know, we began this thing to pay the bills… and we got more than we bargained for,” Fr. Foley stated. “Businesses feel good, the students feel good, it’s all around a win/win situation.”

GOOD NEWS: Jose Olivares Lives in a California Mansion. BAD NEWS: He’s a Squatter, One of Many

Neighbors in the million dollar enclave of Huntington Beach, California were pleased to see one of the homes for sale finally of the market, the For Sale sign was gone and there was someone seen at the house.

The problem was, and it’s a growing one in California, Hoan Huu Hguyen and Jose Alfredo Olivares were squatters, claiming to have a lease on the vacant home.  In California a tenant cannot be evicted BEFORE the end of their lease if a home goes into foreclosure and many overstay those terms knowing the home does not have a buyer.  In addition banks are faced with so many foreclosed properties they are not all managed and supervised properly, leaving them vulnerable to squatters looking for a nice place to stay for free.

In this case Hguyen and Olivares created a fake lease for the $1.1 million property located two block from the ocean, moved in to the empty home (presumably by breaking in) and then proceeded to change the locks.  When the foreclosed home was sold the buying agent got suspicious and called police.

U.S. Offers Additional Grants to Fight Human Trafficking in Haiti, Specially at Dominican Border

The U.S. State Department announced the additional award of $4.75 million to ten grantees to strengthen Haitian institutional and civil society capacity to identify and respond to human trafficking. The U.S. had already funded nearly $1 million to respond to the heightened risk of trafficking after the earthquake of 2010.

“The award of additional grants signifies the United States’ continued commitment to rule of law and the protection of children in Haiti as well as strengthening law enforcement responses against traffickers taking advantage of vulnerable persons in a post-disaster situation,” the State Department stated.

The grantees will work with local partners to help draft anti-trafficking legislation, support direct services for victims’ recovery, and prevent human trafficking and gender-based violence in the internally displaced camps. Additionally, grantees will increase the capacity of targeted law enforcement agencies to investigate and prosecute trafficking cases and social welfare agencies to recognize human trafficking and make referrals for services.

The 2010 Trafficking in Persons Report estimates that 225,000 children were enslaved before the earthquake.

It also enabled the screening of children at all four designated border crossings between Haiti and the Dominican Republic – a process never before conducted at the border.

Catalyst Copper Corporation today announced it will commence 20,000 metres of diamond drilling at its La Verde copper-gold project located in Michoacán State, México, by the end of January. A diamond drill rig is currently on site and drilling crews are being mobilized.

The drilling will form part of Catalyst Copper’s 2011 exploration and development program, which will also include: a determination of the gold-silver-molybdenum values for the known deposits; initial metallurgical test work; commencement of baseline environmental studies and updating the resource model.

Following the excellent drill and geophysical results achieved during 2010, Phase 1 of the 2011 program will involve drilling extensions of the known deposits. This work was recommended by Micon International Limited in the technical report released in December 2010 which stated “there is potential for additional tonnage in both deposits especially at depth” and recommended that “additional delineation drilling around the perimeter of the deposits and at depth should be initiated”. Phase 1 is budgeted at a minimum US$2 million.

Phase 2 of the 2011 exploration program will involve the continuation of definition drilling on the known deposits as well as testing geophysical targets identified in the 2010 program. Initial metallurgical test work will be carried out to determine copper-gold-silver-molybdenum recoveries to a sulphide concentrate, as well as updating the resource model with the 2011 drilling results. Phase 2 is budgeted at a minimum US$4 million and (subject to available funding) will commence upon completion of Phase 1. Upon completion of the 2011 program a preliminary economic assessment of the La Verde deposits will be carried out.

The Company currently has approximately $3.2 million dollars in working capital. The 2011 work program will complete the commitments with Teck Resource Limited (Teck) to exercise the Company’s option to earn a 60% interest in the property .

In 2010, Catalyst:
Signed a three-year option agreement with Teck whereby Minera Hill 29, Catalyst’s wholly owned Mexican subsidiary, can earn a 60% interest in the La Verde porphyry copper deposit, subject to a back-in right by Teck.

Signed a four-year land access agreement with local land owners.

Completed 12,275 metres of core drilling (Table 2) and 150 kilometres of geophysical surveys.

Published an initial NI 43-101 compliant independent resource estimate completed by Micon International Engineering of Vancouver.

About La Verde

The La Verde project is located in an area with excellent infrastructure. Power, rail and water all cross the property. Lazaro Cardenas, Mexico’s third largest port on the Pacific Ocean coast is 150 km from the site. Significant upside potential remains for the two known zones of porphyry style copper, gold and molybdenum mineralization as the 2010 drill program has shown both deposits remain open to depth and along strike.

Obama Administration May Give ATF New Power to Fight Trafficking of U.S. Guns to Mexico

Obama Administration May Give ATF New Power to Fight Trafficking of U.S. Guns to Mexico

The Obama Administration recently announced an emergency proposal to require southwest border gun dealers to report multiple sales of semi-automatic assault rifles. This will give the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) crucial information for investigating and cracking down on illegal gun traffickers, particularly those who supply weapons to drug cartels in Mexico. 

The rule will be effective for 180 days once the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) gives its approval.  Mayors Against Illegal Guns recommended this policy to the Obama Administration in August of 2009 as part of its Blueprint for Federal Action on Illegal Guns.  That report had 40 concrete proposals to take guns out of the hands of criminals without passing new laws.
The drug war continues to claim lives at an alarming rate.  More than 30,100 people have been murdered since 2006, according to the Mexican government.  Violence has spilled over the border into to the U.S., claiming the lives of fourteen U.S. Customs and Border Patrol Agents since 2006, including Agent Brian Terry who was killed in the line of duty on December 15, 2010 by a suspect armed with an AK-47. 

The violence in Mexico is fueled by guns purchased in the United States and trafficked across the border.  The Department of Justice, Office of the Inspector General (OIG) reports that 90 percent of firearms recovered and traced in drug related crimes in Mexico originated in the United States. 

ATF officials have also testified to Congress that AR-15s, AK-47s and other high capacity “long guns” are the preferred weapons for Mexican drug cartels and that these weapons were overwhelmingly traced to U.S. sources.  According to the OIG, the percentage of crime long guns recovered in Mexico has increased from 20 percent in 2004 to 48 percent in 2009. 

Last year, Mayor Against Illegal Guns conducted an analysis that shows that the four southwest border states were the source of 75 percent of these firearms.  When controlling for population, Arizona exports guns recovered in Mexican crimes at a higher rate than any other U.S. state. 

The new rule when implemented would require gun dealers operating in the four border states to report bulk purchases of certain rifles, including semiautomatic weapons, weapons that are .22 caliber or greater, and weapons that are able to accept a detachable magazine.  ATF has the ability to require multiple sales reports through its existing Demand Letter authority.

Reporting bulk sales gives law enforcement a powerful tool in the war against gun trafficking.  Federally licensed gun dealers are already required to complete multiple sale reports for handgun sales, and this data has provided the ATF with valuable investigative information.  In 2008, ATF initiated roughly 300 criminal investigations connected with 25,000 illegal guns from information gathered in multiple sale reports.  Adding rifles to the list of required multiple sale reports will give ATF greater ability to crack down on Mexican drug gangs, while posing a very limited burden on law abiding gun dealers.  Implementation of this policy could not come at a more important time.

ATF has the clear authority to require multiple sales reports of long guns through its existing “Demand Letter” authority, which allows the agency to require federal firearms licensees to submit records for inspection, including records of importation, production, receipt, sales, or other disposition of firearms.  The information included in multiple sales reports falls within the scope of the ATF’s existing authority and does not require legislative approval.

ATF requested the authority from OMB to implement this rule change by January 5, 2011.  Approval has yet to be granted.

Get the Most Nutrition for Your Money!

Get the Most Nutrition for Your Money!

Eating more healthfully doesn’t mean you have to spend more money at the supermarket. A new guide in the March 2011 issue of ShopSmart, from the publisher of Consumer Reports, crunches the numbers to find foods and drinks that pack lots of nutrition for the buck. ShopSmart highlights 25 deals that offer easy ways to get all of the nutritional essentials without overhauling your shopping list.
“It’s true—you can eat healthy and save money!” said Lisa Lee Freeman, editor-in-chief of ShopSmart. “And you don’t necessarily have to completely overhaul your fridge and pantry. Sometimes all it takes is a few tweaks to your shopping list. For example, just grabbing black beans over white ones or canned tomatoes instead of fresh can make a difference.”
ShopSmart’s “Get the Most Nutrition for Your Money” feature includes healthful food bargains grouped by nutrient—antioxidants, fiber, protein, and more—to make meal planning easier, prep tips for making tasty dishes with the 25 healthful food bargains, six super seasonings to fire up the flavor of your dishes, and storage advice so you can stretch your dollars even more. Below is a sampling of some of ShopSmart’s advice.

New Ways to Save the Next Time You Shop:

1. ANTIOXIDANTS: Cheap ways to get a super nutrient fix
Cabbage (16 cents per serving;  $2.50 for one medium head): Cabbage is loaded with Vitamins A and C. Try an Asian-inspired slaw of shredded cabbage, cashews, and a lime juice and sesame oil vinaigrette. Wrap in a perforated plastic bag in the refrigerator to store for about two weeks.
Canned unsweetened pumpkin (38 cents per serving;  $1.32 per 15-ounce can):  The bright orange hue is a tip-off to high levels of beta carotene, which might help protect vision. Sub it for sugar in muffins and blend it with Greek yogurt for a pudding-like treat. Stock up when it’s on sale; cans will keep for about two years.

2. CALCIUM: Feed your bones for less than $1 per serving

Nonfat dry milk powder (17 cents per reconstituted cup; $5.99 per 26-ounce container): This is just milk that has had the water removed, so it equals the calcium and protein of regular milk for about 10 cents less a serving. Stir spoonfuls of milk powder into casseroles and mashed potatoes. Like regular milk, reconstituted milk must be refrigerated.
Plain yogurt (70 cents per serving; $8.39 per case of 12): It’s a quick and handy way to get calcium, and is also brimming with protein and good bacteria that aid digestion. For flavored yogurt at a fraction of the calories, stir in vanilla extract or an all-fruit spread. Yogurt also makes an excellent swap for cream in soups and desserts or sour cream on potatoes. Keep refrigerated for two to three weeks.

3. FIBER: Stay regular for less than 50 cents a serving

Quinoa (50 cents per serving; $3.99 per 12-ounce package):  Quick-cooking quinoa has almost 50 percent more fiber than brown rice, plus a dose of protein. Simmer with milk and honey for a comforting hot breakfast,  or use quinoa in place of rice. Keep in a cool, dark place in an airtight container for about one year.
Popcorn (12 cents per serving; $1.89 per 28-ounce bag): Popcorn eaters get about 22 percent more fiber than non-popcorn eaters. Don’t pile on calories with butter: spritz air- popped corn with cooking spray and toss with chili powder or oregano. To keep kernels from drying, store in an airtight container.

4. PROTEIN: Fuel up for as little as 18 cents

Dried black beans (24 cents per serving; $1.45 for 16-ounce bag):  All beans are stellar sources of protein, fiber, and blood-pressure-friendly potassium, but dark beans pack more nutrients. For a more healthful taco filling, use less lean ground beef and mix in mashed-up beans. Keep dried beans airtight to have them last for years.
Peanuts in the shell (12 cents per serving; $1.99 for 16 ounces): They’re a cheap protein fix, and they shell out more than 30 essential nutrients, including a phytochemical linked to a reduction in heart disease and cancer risk. Coat fish fillets with finely-chopped nuts before baking, or keep some in your office or car for a terrific pick-me-up. Refrigerate nuts in the shell for up to nine months.

5. OMEGA-3S: Heart-healthy bargains

Frozen shrimp ($1.36;  $14.99 per 2-pound bag):  Frozen shrimp is a low-calorie and relatively cheap source of omega-3s. For a quick meal, sauté shrimp with garlic and finely diced sun-dried tomatoes and serve on salad greens. Stash in the freezer as soon as you get home, and use within a year.
Flaxseed (11 cents per serving; $1.79 per 16-ounce bag): This mighty seed has omega-3s and other fatty acids linked to immune-system strength, cardiovascular health, and cancer prevention. Whole flaxseeds pass through the body undigested, so grind them in the coffee grinder first, and mix the seeds with spices to sprinkle on beans, grains, and salads. Store flaxseed in a dark, dry, and cool place for two to three months.

Fernanda Romero Pleads Guilty on Immigration Charges related to “Sham” Marriage

Fernanda Romero Pleads Guilty on Immigration Charges related to “Sham” Marriage

The Mexican Actress Fernanda Romero has said she will plead guilty to charges that she lied to immigration who say she was in a sham marriage. Last April Fernanda Romero and Kent Stuart Ross were charged last April with lying on immigration forms and in September the case made it to trial. A mistrial was declared however when jurors reported that deliberations had become too hostile. The retrial was scheduled for February.

Although Prosecutors are not seeking jail time for the couple, they do face the possibility of five years each in federal prison should the judge decide.

Romero’s plea agreement required that she acknowledge that she lied in a sworn statement about her relationship with Ross. Prosecutors claim that the pair married so Romero could obtain permanent residency, although they were living in separate homes and were dating other people.

Pro-Life Legislation Builds Momentum in States

Pro-Life Legislation Builds Momentum in States

November mid-term elections have energized legislators in several states to introduce legislation to limit abortions.

Among ideas being considered or already introduced:

-Bills that would ban most abortions 20 weeks after conception. Many states already have restrictions on late term abortions, typically defined as 22 to 26 weeks after conception. But last year, Nebraska set what many advocates consider a new gold standard, banning abortions, unless there is imminent danger to the woman’s life or physical health, at 20 weeks after conception, on the theory that the fetus can feel pain at that point. Similar measures pushing back the permissible timing for an abortion are being developed in Indiana, Iowa, New Hampshire, Oklahoma and other states.

-Bills to make it mandatory that woman considering abortions view a live ultrasound of the fetus.
While several states encourage women seeking abortions to view an ultrasound, Oklahoma last year adopted a requirement that doctors or technicians perform the procedure with the screen visible to the woman, and explain in detail what she is seeing. The state of Kentucky Senate has passed a similar bill, and similar legislation is expected to come up in states including Indiana, Maryland, Montana, Ohio, Texas, Virginia and Wyoming.

In Florida, former Gov. Charlie Crist vetoed an ultrasound bill. The new governor, Rick Scott, attacked him for that veto and is expected to support a new proposal.

-Bills that would end insurance coverage. Numerous states are preparing legislation that would not allow abortions in insurance plans that will be offered to small businesses and individual insurance buyers under the Obama administration health plan.

Pro-life advocates are concerned over the new trend. “We’re facing the biggest threat to reproductive rights we’ve ever faced in this state,” said Lisa Subeck, executive director for Naral Pro-Choice Wisconsin.

“I call on the Legislature to bring to my desk legislation that protects the unborn, establishing a culture of life in Kansas,” Gov. Sam Brownback said last week in his first State of the State message.
“This is the best climate for passing pro-life laws in years,” said Michael Gonidakis, executive director of Ohio Right to Life, expressing the mood in many states. “We’ve got a pro-life governor and a brand new pro-life speaker. Our government now is pro-life from top to bottom.”

There has been a large shift in the politics at the state capital level.  29 Governors are now considered to be anti-abortion compared to 21 last year. Currently 15 states have both a legislature and a governor that are anti abortion, this compares with 10 last year.

The abortion rate in the United States, which had declined steadily since a 1981 peak of more than 29 abortions per 1,000 women, steadied between 2005 and 2008, at slightly under 20 abortions per 1,000 women, according to a new report from the Guttmacher Institute.

Mexican Drug Cartels Resort to Jihadist Terror Methodology by Using More Car Bombings

Mexican Drug Cartels Resort to Jihadist Terror Methodology by Using More Car Bombings

As the largely narco-fueled violence in Mexico escalates, the country’s crime cartels have resorted to using one of jihadist terrorists’ most lethal weapons — the car bomb.  The first successful car bombing occurred in July of last year killing three policemen in Ciudad Juarez and the most recent incident before this weeks event, left two injured in Nuevo Leon at a police station in late December.

Mexico’s Secretariat of Public Security (SSP) announced that a “vehicle-borne improvised explosive device” (VBIED) exploded January 19 in front of a muni-police station in Linares, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

The SSP further confirmed a second car bomb was detonated in front of a police station in San Nicolas hours later. The VBIED detonated in San Nicolas was in a car that reportedly was abandoned by a man dressed in black just minutes before it exploded.

According to eyewitness accounts, three women had jumped out of the vehicle that blew up in Linares only minutes after they allegedly left the scene. Although there were no reported injuries, there was extensive property damage, including to two nearby vehicles that belonged to a local police official.

Rhode Island Man Sentenced for Defrauding Immigrants by Posing as Agent Threatening Deportation

Rhode Island Man Sentenced for Defrauding Immigrants by Posing as Agent Threatening Deportation

A Pawtucket, R.I., man was sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court in Providence to six months in federal prison; three years supervised release; and ordered to pay $8,700 in restitution to two victims he defrauded while posing as an immigration attorney; and claiming he was a federal immigration agent, threatening to have individuals deported. The sentence is the result of an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations.

Audeliz Villegas, 45, who was also known by several aliases, pleaded guilty in federal court in June to four counts of wire fraud and one count of impersonating a federal agent.

Sentence, which was imposed by U.S. District Court Chief Judge Mary M. Lisi, was announced by U.S. Attorney for the District of Rhode Island Peter F. Neronha; Bruce M. Foucart, special agent in charge of ICE HSI in Boston; and Colonel Brendan P. Doherty, superintendent of the Rhode Island State Police.

At Villegas’ change of plea hearing in June, Assistant U.S. Attorney Mary Rogers told the court that in November and December 2009, Villegas devised a scheme to defraud individuals, many of them immigrants seeking legal services by claiming he was an attorney licensed to practice in New York. Throughout the scheme, in addition to showing victims documentation purporting to be connected to his law practice, Villegas showed the victims forged documents purporting to be documents filed in federal court, with forged signatures of a purported magistrate judge. These documents purported to grant relief to the victims.

Rogers also told the court that the government was prepared to provide evidence that in addition to the false promises and statements made to his victims, Villegas defrauded his victims out of a total $8,290. When his victims confronted him, he responded by sending a text message in which he claimed to be an immigration agent and that they had committed a federal offense and would be arrested. When one of the victims followed up with a telephone call to Villegas, he had placed a recording with the message that the phone was the property of Homeland Security.

Guatemalan Former President On Trial For Stealing $15 Million from Defense Ministry

Guatemalan Former President On Trial For Stealing $15 Million from Defense Ministry

Click Here to Enlarge Photo

Alfonso Portillo, the Ex-President of Guatemala, has begun his trial in which the prosecution will try to prove that he stole $15 million from the defense ministry while he was in office. 

From 2000 to 2004, Portillo allegedly authorized approximately $15 million to be transferred from the public funds to those specifically set aside for defense purposes.  Then, prosecutors claim that officials in Portillo’s inner circle would hide the money in personal bank accounts in Europe as well as the US. 

Shortly after his term ended, Portillo deserted Guatemala for Mexico, but was sent back to his home country in 2008.  He claims that he left because he would not be able to achieve a fair trial in Guatemala. 

Former Defense Minister Eduardo Arevalo and former Finance Minister Manuel Maza are on trial as well.

This week TMZ revealed footage of Nadya Suleman, proud mother of 14, also known as the Octomom, in a fetish video with an adult male dressed in a diaper and baby bonnet.

Lets try not to be grossed out that the video was filmed in what appears to be her children’s nursery or that Octomom is just gross. Our real Hispanic Horror came when we find out the man-baby is none other than Hispanic radio personality David Gonzalez who is known for his body tattoos. 

Gonzalez is a former LA radio producer for KPWR-FM and currently a California based internet radio personality.  Gonzalez ran a yard sale for Ocotomom and got miffed when he wasn’t given his due credit but rather Suze Orman was as the person helping Suleman turn her dire financial situation around. 

Why Gonzalez is even involved with the train wreck known as Octomom doesn’t say much for him.  If this was an act of revenge it back fired.  What should we of expected when Gonzalez advertised ‘autographed nursery bras’ and did a live stream from the yard sale back in September of last year.

The last broadcast of “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” was aired Friday night as MSNBC and Olbermann decided to end their contract.

Olbermann announced his departure toward the end of his program. “This is the last edition of ‘Countdown,’” Olbermann said. He thanked his staff and “just a few of the many people who fought with me and for me” since his return to MSNBC nearly eight years ago.

Neither Olbermann or MSNBC is shedding too much light on why the sudden split but the relationship has always been a stormy one.

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

It comes as Comcast is said to be near to closing its deal to acquire control of MSNBC parent NBC Universal from General Electric. But network executives told the New York Times the pending takeover had nothing to do with Olbermann’s exit.

NBC News briefly suspended Olbermann with pay last November after it learned he had made campaign contributions, an apparent violation of its policy for journalists,. Olbermann argued he was a commentator and in no way pretending to be neutral politically.

Before Olbermann’s most recent run at MSNBC, he spent 13 1/2 years at ESPN, where he and co-host Dan Patrick hosted “SportsCenter” program,. As a sportscaster, Olbermann also has worked for Fox Sports and CNN, as well as local stations in Boston and Los Angeles. He currently writes the Baseball Nerd blog for Major League Baseball’s MLB.com site.

Cuban-Americans and Cuban nationals celebrated in 2009 when President Barack Obama renewed postal service after 42 years, whereby Cuban mail would be received by the U.S. postal service.

Now it’s the Cuban’s that are refusing to send mail to the U.S. effective today.  Until further notice Cuba will no longer mail anything to the U.S. due to large amounts of Cuban mail being refused and subsequently being returned, which is costly for the island nation.

After the Yemen mail explosives the U.S. tightened security measures for all incoming mail from all foreign countries.
