Trump finished with 304


votes and Clinton had 227
By Stephen Ohlemacher
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON There were many


protesters but few faithless electors as
Donald Trump won the Electoral College
vote Monday ensuring he will become
Americas 45th president.
An effort by anti-Trump forces to persuade Republican electors to abandon Donald Trump
the president-elect came to practically
nothing and the process unfolded largely according to its
traditions. Trumps polarizing victory Nov. 8 and the fact
Democrat Hillary Clinton had won the national popular
vote had stirred an intense lobbying effort, but to no avail.
We did it! Trump tweeted Monday evening. Thank you
to all of my great supporters, we just officially won the
election (despite all of the distorted and inaccurate media).

Boy, 3, shopping with grandma


dies in road rage shooting
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. A 3-year-old
boy being taken on a shopping trip by
his grandmother was killed in a road
rage shooting when a driver opened
fire on the grandmothers car because
he thought she wasnt moving fast
enough at a stop sign, police said.
The boy and his grandmother were at
the stop sign in southwest Little Rock
on Saturday evening when a driver
apparently angry about the delay
stepped out of his car and opened fire,
police said. The boy was struck by
gunfire at least once, they said.
The grandmother, who wasnt
struck, drove away and called police
from a shopping center.
Police arrived at the shopping center
and found the boy in the car outside a
J.C. Penney department store. The boy
was taken to a hospital, where he died
shortly after, becoming the second
young child shot dead in a road rage
incident in the city in the last few
weeks.
Police Lt. Steve McClanahan said
investigators believe the boy and his
grandmother were completely innocent and have no relationship with
Saturdays shooter, who was being
sought. He said the grandmother simply was driving the car and was taking
her grandson shopping when the incident occurred.

officials said the woman was detained


Sunday in Columbus, New Mexico
when she crossed from Puerto
Palomas, Mexico, and a drug-sniffing
dog alerted customs officers.
The officers found six dreamcatchers
in the womans car with rings made of
rubber tubing filled with a liquid that
tested positive for methamphetamine,
the officials said.
Dreamcatchers, hoops of willow and
feathers typically made by American
Indians in the Great Plains, are intended to protect sleepers from bad dreams.
The woman, from Nuevo Casas
Grandes in Mexicos Chihuahua state,
was handed over to Department of
Homeland Security agents. Her name
was not released.
Officials said she was traveling with
her 8-year-old and 1-year-old daughters. The children were handed over by
agents to a relative of the woman.
Robert Reza, director of the
Columbus Port of Entry, said smugglers frequently conceal drugs in soft
drink cans, framed artwork and other
seemingly innocent items
This is one of the most unusual
smuggling episodes we have ever
encountered, Reza said.
U. S. border customs officials in
Arizona last June arrested a 19-yearold man after agents he allegedly tried
to cross the border with drugs disguised as tamales.
The purported tamales contained
about $3,000 worth of methamphetamine, officials said.

South City biotech hotel moves ahead


By Austin Walsh

No time to change
A person was seen changing their
clothes in public on a sidewalk on
Easton Drive in Burlingame before
11:31 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 6.

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

One of South San Franciscos most recognizable biotechnology developments


stands to grow after officials approved construction of a new hotel adjacent to San
Bruno Mountain.
The South San Francisco Planning
Commission unanimously agreed Thursday,
Dec. 15, to allow for a seven-story amenity
building with a boutique hotel in the
Genesis project overlooking Highway 101.
Alex Greenwood, South San Franciscos
director of Economic and Community
Development, said he believes the building
will offer a variety of services greatly valued in the citys thriving biotechnology
industry.
The Genesis towers is a highly visible
and highly strategic development. By
adding this hotel it provides a real unique
environment and offers amenities to the life
science employers who make their home
there, he said.
The five-story hotel proposed above two
bottom floors of retail and restaurant space
is allowed under the entitlement agreement
first struck by Jack Myers, of Myers
Development, before he sold the project
previously known as Centennial Towers to
Phase 3 Properties last year for $144 million. The amended plan is still subject to
approval by the South San Francisco City
Council, which is expected to consider the
project next month.
Currently standing at the site is a single
tower comprised of nearly 400,000 square
feet of Class A commercial office space, as
well as a market, gym, yoga center and a
conference center accommodating more
than 230 people. Ground has been broken
on a second neighboring tower to house an
additional 400,000 square feet of research
and development space, which Greenwood
said he expects to be completed by 2019.

The hotel is slated for an amenity building
proposed to link the two office towers,
which Greenwood said would offer as many
as 110 rooms to those visiting the campus
on the 12-acre site near Airport Boulevard.
As the local life science industry continues to grow, offering a variety of services
designed to accommodate business executives such a spa treatment facilities, highend restaurants, hotels, gyms and more are
more common requests for developments,
said Greenwood.
Its becoming harder and harder to attract
top biotech talent without these type of
amenities, he said.
He likened the circumstances to the technology sector further south along the
Peninsula, where companies have seemingly become engaged in a sort of arms race to
stockpile the largest collection of assets
designed to improve the quality of life for
employees and clients.
Top biotech talent is asking for these
amenities so the developments that offer
them are head and shoulders above in their
ability to attract the best quality tenants,
he said.
The proposed new building would house
nearly 17,000 square feet of retail, restaurant and fitness space split across the bot-

hotel rooms on each level.
Considering the existing buildings
unique design, featuring a tall wall of glass
and steel with a blue hue shining onto the
busy highway below, Greenwood said great
attention was given to assure the newest
addition matches the trademark architecture.
He expressed confidence the amenity
building and hotel will blend well with its
surroundings on the campus.
From staffs point of view, the design is
phenomenal and it has been sensitively
integrated into the original design, he
said.
As the third building is proposed for construction to be seen from Highway 101 in
front of an existing parking garage,
Greenwood added he believed it will add to
the projects visual appeal.
The view from the highway is going to
be much nicer, he said.

Public pension system


to sell all tobacco stocks
By Jonathan J. Cooper
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SACRAMENTO The nations


largest public pension system is
giving up tobacco.
The
California
Public
Employees Retirement System
decided Monday to sell its last
$550 million worth of tobaccorelated investments nearly two
decades after trading away the bulk
of them.
In a 9-3 vote, the CalPERS
investment committee disregarded
the advice from its own financial
advisers who recommended reversing a sell-off of tobacco stock that
was approved in 2000, which has
cost the system more than $3 billion in lost earnings.
At that time, CalPERS divested
tobacco holdings managed by its
in-house advisers, but it allowed
outside managers to retain the
investments they controlled.
Public health organizations
overwhelmingly opposed a reinvestment, saying it would send
the message that California supports a product that causes cancer
and raises health care costs.
Weve made a lot of progress in
de-normalizing tobacco, to get
people to think that tobacco is not
OK, said Jim Knox, vice president of the American Cancer
Societys advocacy arm. To have

the largest pension program in the


world to suddenly get back into
tobacco in a big way sends the
wrong message.
The review of the divestment
decision comes as CalPERS struggles to strengthen its finances in
the face of lackluster investment
earnings and a growing number of
retirees drawing pensions.
CalPERS now spends more
money each month than it takes in
from taxpayer contributions and
the earnings on its $304 billion
worth of investments. The pension fund has enough assets to
cover only 68 percent of promised
benefits. The systems investments earned just 0.61 percent in
the last fiscal year and 2.4 percent
the year before, far short of the 7.5
percent earnings target.
I am not aware of anyone who
smokes or doesnt smoke based on
whether CalPERS invests or doesnt invest, said JJ Jelincic, a
member of the CalPERS investment committee who favored reinvesting in tobacco. And if
were not changing behavior, then
what are we getting for the money
were giving up?
CalPERS has long taken a dim
view of divestment as a strategy to
influence public policy, preferring
to use its clout as a large investor
to pressure companies in which it
owns stock.

Cities, counties plan immigrant


legal aid after Trumps victory
By Sophia Tareen and Amy Taxin
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHICAGO Major U.S. cities and counties are beefing up legal services for immigrants to help them fight deportation and
avoid fraudulent lawyers in the wake of
Donald Trumps election and his hard-line
immigration enforcement promises.
Tapping local government funds to represent immigrants in federal proceedings provides an early example of the type of pushback the Republican incoming president
will receive in Democratic strongholds.
Advocates call it a matter of justice and
smart economics, but some question
whether its a fair use of taxpayer money.
Chicago has approved a $1.3 million
legal fund. Los Angeles elected officials said
Monday they are working with private foundations to set up a $10 million fund, while
some California state lawmakers have proposed spending tens of millions of dollars
to provide lawyers to immigrants facing
deportation. New York is mulling a publicprivate legal fund, building on New York
Citys public defender program thats considered a national model.

We need to be able to stand by people


who are fearful, Chicago Mayor Rahm
Emanuel, a former White House chief of
staff, said after the measure passed the City
Council last week.
Trumps pledges to build a border wall and
deport the estimated 11 million people living in the country without legal permission
have triggered uncertainty in immigrant circles. He has since scaled back the deportee
number, but not detailed his platform.
Since his win, a lack of legal representation for immigrants has become a growing
concern. It was the top issue raised by a

house and into a getaway car with a
female driver. The house contained
signs of a forced entry with smashed
windows. The homeowner reported a
missing laptop and revolver, according
to prosecutors.
A search of the getaway cars license
plate revealed that the car was registered to a Samuel Garcia. A photo ID
review confirmed that Garcia was not
one of the three suspects running out of
the house, according to prosecutors.
On Dec. 5, Burlingame police
stopped the same car for a traffic violation. The car was occupied by four people including Ortega, who was driving,
according to prosecutors.
On Dec. 14, a residential burglary
was reported on the 200 block of
Alameda de las Pulgas in Redwood City.
Windows in the house were smashed,
and the driver of the getaway car
matched Ortegas description, according to prosecutors.
Later that same day, three San Mateo
homes on Taylor Street and Cottage
Grove Avenue, were burglarized in a
three-hour period. Windows in all three
homes were smashed. The homeowner
of one of the houses tracked his stolen
tablet to an address in Santa Clara.
Because Ortega had previous contact
with that address, police were able to
determine that she lived there and
obtain a search warrant for the address,
according to prosecutors.
Officers found stolen property from
each of the burglaries at the Santa Clara
address. She was later found driving in
Santa Clara in the same vehicle and
arrested.
Ortega has been granted a courtappointed lawyer and entered a plea of
not guilty. A preliminary hearing has
been set for Dec. 30. She remains in
custody on $100,000 bail, prosecutors
said.

Jury trial date set for

Association in San
Mateo over a six-year period.
On Sept. 27, Lambert pleaded no
contest on the condition she receive no
more than three years and four months
in state prison, according to District
Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.
A San Mateo County Superior Court
judge released Lambert on her own
supervised recognizance in November,
Wagstaffe said.
The judge indicated she wanted to
wait for sentencing until Medeiros
completes his jury trial, according to
the District Attorneys Office.
Lambert, 65, managed the HOA and
allegedly generated 150 invoices for
work never done at the sprawling condominium complex.
The alleged crimes took place from
2007 until September 2013.
Both Lambert and Medeiros, who
owns a painting company, are Fremont
residents.
Lambert was responsible for overseeing the 990-unit condominium
community off Peninsula Avenue and
Delaware Street. The 30-acre site has a
lake, five swimming pools, private
courtyards, clubhouse, spa, 18-hole
putting green, four tennis courts, two
saunas, a gym and billiard room.
Lambert allegedly wrote checks to
pay for the false invoices and Medeiros
would deposit them in his account and
share the money with her.
Medeiros, 58, is out of custody after
posting a $1 million bail bond, as previously reported.

A man suffered a minor burn to his
hand in a fire early Saturday morning in
South San Francisco that displaced him
and the rest of his family, a South San
Francisco fire battalion chief said.
The two-alarm fire in a single-family, multiple-story home was reported at
4:30 a.m. on Baypark Circle, Battalion
Chief Matthew Samson said.
Four people in all were displaced.
The majority of the damage to the
home was done to the first floor,
Samson said.

U.N. approves Aleppo monitors


as evacuations from city proceed
By Bassem Mroue and Edith M. Lederer
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

REUTERS

Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrei Karlov lies on the ground after he was shot by Mevlut
Mert Altintas at an art gallery in Ankara, Turkey.

Invoking Syria, policeman kills


Russian ambassador to Turkey
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ANKARA, Turkey A Turkish policeman


fatally shot Russias ambassador to Turkey
on Monday in front of a shocked gathering
at a photo exhibit and then, pacing near the
body of his victim, appeared to condemn
Russias military role in Syria, shouting:
Dont forget Aleppo! Dont forget Syria!
The leaders of Turkey and Russia said the
attack in Ankara, the Turkish capital, was an
attempt to disrupt efforts to repair ties
between their countries, which have backed
opposing sides in the Syrian civil war.
An Associated Press photographer and
others at the art gallery watched in horror as
the gunman, who was wearing a dark suit and
tie, fired at least eight shots, at one point
walking around Ambassador Andrei Karlov
as he lay motionless and shooting him again
at close range.
The assailant, who was identified as
Mevlut Mert Altintas, a 22-year-old member
of Ankaras riot police squad, was later killed
in a shootout with police. Three other people were wounded in the attack, authorities
said.
The assassination came after days of
protests by Turks angry over Russias support for President Bashar Assad in the Syrian
conflict and Russias role in the bombardment and destruction of Aleppo, Syrias
largest city.

The gunman shouted about Aleppo in


Turkish, and also yelled Allahu akbar, the
Arabic phrase for God is great, continuing
in Arabic: We are the descendants of those
who supported the Prophet Muhammad, for
jihad.
The attack, condemned by the White
House and the United Nations, was another
sign of how Turkey, a NATO member and a
partner in the U.S.-led campaign against the
Islamic State group, is struggling to contain multiple security threats. The war in
Syria has been a major problem for years,
sending several million refugees into
Turkey and, more recently, drawing in
Turkish troops.
Turkey has become accustomed to deadly
attacks Kurdish militants claimed responsibility for Dec. 10 bombings in Istanbul
that killed 44 people, many of them police.
The spectacle of 62-year-old Karlovs
assassination by a member of the Turkish
security forces at a photography exhibit
meant to highlight Russian culture reinforced the sense of unease over the regions
conflict and complex web of alliances and
relationships.
It came a day before a key meeting about
Syria to be held in Moscow. Those attending
include the foreign and defense ministers
from Turkey, an opponent of Assad, and
Russia and Iran, backers of the Syrian
regime.

Syrian state TV said it expected the evacuation of thousands of civilians and fighters

Police, who rushed to the scene in a central neighborhood known for trendy cafes

Lagardes leadership of IMF

PARIS The high-flying career of
Christine Lagarde, the head of the
International Monetary Fund, hung in the
balance Monday after a special French
court convicted her of negligence for not
seeking to block a fraudulent 2008 arbitration award to a politically connected
tycoon while she was Frances finance

The IMF said it expected its board to meet

After a weeklong trial, Frances Court of

Police: Truck attack that killed 12 in Berlin intentional


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BERLIN Police said Tuesday that the


driver who rammed a truck into a crowded
Christmas market in the heart of the German
capital, killing at least 12 people and injuring nearly 50, did so intentionally and that
they are investigating a suspected terror
attack.
The truck struck the popular Christmas
market outside the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial
Church late Monday as tourists and locals
were enjoying a traditional pre-Christmas
evening out near Berlins Zoo station.
Our investigators are working on the
assumption that the truck was intentionally
driven into the crowd at the Christmas market on Breitscheidplatz, Berlin police said
on Twitter.
All police measures concerning the suspected terror attack at Breitscheidplatz are
being taken with great speed and the necessary care, they said.
Hours earlier Germanys top security offiREUTERS cial had refrained from pointing to an intenRescuers inspect a truck that ploughed through a crowd of a Christmas market on tional act, but said evidence pointed in that

TRUMP
Continued from page 1
He later issued a statement saying: With
this historic step we can look forward to the
bright future ahead. I will work hard to unite
our country and be the President of all
Americans.
Even one of Trumps fiercest Republican
rivals, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, said it was
time to get behind the president-elect.
We want unity, we want love, Kasich said
as Ohios electors voted to back Trump at a
statehouse ceremony. Kasich refused to
endorse or even vote for Trump in the election.
With all states voting, Trump finished with
304 votes and Clinton had 227. It takes 270
Electoral College votes to win the presidency. Texas put Trump over the top, despite two
Republican electors casting protest votes.

Befitting an election filled with acrimony,


thousands of protesters converged on state
capitols across the country Monday, urging
Republican electors to abandon their partys
winning candidate.
More than 200 demonstrators braved freezing temperatures at Pennsylvanias capitol,
chanting, No Trump, no KKK, no fascist
USA! and No treason, no Trump!
In Madison, Wisconsin, protesters shouted, cried and sang Silent Night. In Augusta,
Maine, they banged on drums and held signs
that said, Dont let Putin Pick Our
President, referring to Russian President
Vladimir Putin.
Despite the noise outside state Capitols,
inside, the voting went pretty much as
planned.
In Nashville, Tennessee, one audience
member tried to read out some Scripture
before the ballots were cast, but was told he
could not speak.
We certainly appreciate the Scripture,
State Election Coordinator Mark Goins said

from the podium. The answer is no.


With all Republican states reporting,
Trump lost only the two electors in Texas.
One voted for Kasich, the Ohio governor; the
other voted for former Texas Rep. Ron Paul.
Clinton lost four electors in Washington
state three voted for former Secretary of
State Colin Powell and one voted for Native
American tribal leader Faith Spotted Eagle.
She also lost an elector in Hawaii to Vermont
Sen. Bernie Sanders. Clinton beat Sanders in
the Democratic primaries.
Several Democratic electors in other states
tried to vote for protest candidates but they
either changed their votes to Clinton or were
replaced.
The Electoral College has 538 members,
with the number allocated to each state based
on how many representatives it has in the
House plus one for each senator. The District
of Columbia gets three, despite the fact that
the home to Congress has no vote in
Congress.
Republican electors were deluged with
emai l s ,
phone calls
and letters
urging them
not to support Trump.

attack.
The crash came less than a month after the
U.S. State Department called for caution in
markets and other public places across
Europe, saying extremist groups including
Islamic State and al-Qaida were focusing on
the upcoming holiday season and associated
events.
The Islamic State group and al-Qaida have
both called on followers to use trucks in particular to attack crowds. On July 14, a truck
plowed into Bastille Day revelers in the
southern French city of Nice, killing 86 people. Islamic State claimed responsibility for
that attack, which was carried out by a
Tunisian living in France.
After the Berlin attack, dozens of ambulances lined the streets waiting to evacuate
people, and heavily armed police patrolled.
Authorities on Twitter urged people to stay
away from the area, saying they need to keep
the streets clear for rescue vehicles.
Among the dead was a passenger in the
truck, who succumbed as paramedics treated
him, Berlin police spokesman Winfried
Wenzel said.
emails are part of coordinated campaigns.
In Baton Rouge, Louisiana, elector Charlie
Buckels reached out to Trumps opponents
after the New York businessman got all of the
states eight votes.
For those of you who wished it had gone
another way, I thank you for being here, said
Buckels, the state GOP finance chairman. I
thank you for your passion for our country.
There is no constitutional provision or federal law that requires electors to vote for the
candidate who won their state though some
states require their electors to vote for the
winning candidate.
Those laws, however, are rarely tested.
More than 99 percent of electors through
U.S. history have voted for the candidate who
won their state. Of those who refused, none
has ever been prosecuted, according to the
National Archives.
Some Democrats have argued that the
Electoral College is undemocratic because it
gives more weight to less populated states.
That is how Clinton, who got more than 2.8
million more votes nationwide, lost the election to Trump.
Some have also tried to dissuade Trump voters by arguing that he is unsuited to the job.
Others cite the CIAs assessment that Russia
engaged in computer hacking to sway the
election in favor of the Republican.

Electoral college update
Editor,
Ithas certainly been an interesting and
entertaining electoral cycle with folks on
the losing side crying about the Electoral
College. Rather than whining about it,
maybe folks should read a few history
books about its creation and purpose.
What I dont understand when people are
talking about Electoral College issues is
why nobody brings up the way it really
should work. Each elector represents a congressional district. Why doesnt each electoral representative vote for the majority
candidate in their own district to truly represent the voice of their community? To me
theres no justiable reason that the popular vote winner in any given state should
be given all of the electoral votes of that
state. It seems to me the current system disenfranchises a large number of Americans
including conservatives in California and
liberals inMontana as there is no chance
their vote will count. You could still give
the popular vote winner in each state the
two senatorial electoral votes as a bonus
for winning that state.
I dont know if it wouldve made any difference in any of the recent elections (we
need a diligent reporter to do the
research)but it would certainly be fair,
make more sense, be hard to argue against
and would give a voice to many who currently dont have one.

Burning flags
Editor,
Now Trump wants to make ag burning,
the ultimate thought crime, a criminal act.
Remarkable. How often does this happen
that it has become such an issue? Since the
ag represents the Constitution and the
freedoms set forth, for ag burners, the act
would be tantamount to denying their First
Amendment guarantees, including speech,
assembly as well as misguided ag burning; thus, the law would be an absurdity.
The fact that the Constitution allows for
such an act is precisely what has elevated
our government beyond all others and
why it so seldom occurs. It is highly doubtful such a law would ever be enacted of
course, but his meddling is geared to incite
protest. And, as happened with the anti-war
street protests of the 60s, any display of
lawlessness by a minority of protesters
would allow Trump to encourage law and
order enforcement, including heightened
repressions against anyone not in accord
with his own self-important standards. And
throughout it all, blame will be misdirected
away from the very ones suppressing civil
rights, i.e. the Trump administration and
onto those trying desperately to preserve
them.
The consequence: The escalation of animosity and violence on both sides. As
offensive as ag burning may be, its

important to note that the real intent is not


rebellion against the Constitution or the
state, but against authoritarian restrictions. As far as I can remember, a tyrannical government is precisely what the ag

Make America foolish again


Editor,
The pied-piper candidate Donald Trump
successfully fooled millions of Americans
to vote for him. People fell for his con and
willfully handed over the power to the top
1 percent of the wealthiest.
Hillary Clinton was a weak candidate, but
the collusion of corporate media, foreign
inuence, conspiracy theory gurus,
Islamophobia, anti-immigrant sentiments,
racism and the FBI directors meddling in
the presidential election all contributed to
accomplish this con game. Trump projected
himself as an outsider, not taking money
from Wall Street bankers, shrewd businessman, anti-immigrant, anti-Islam etc., and
convinced the distraught Americans to vote
for him. Now, every federal government
agency will be lled by the wealthy 1 percent who vow to destroy, an euphemism for
destruction is deregulation, and prot from
it.
Those innocent Americans who voted for
him have to watch the Trumpland reality
TV show as it unfolds for the next four
years. TV ratings, corporate earnings, Wall
Street executives compensation, revenue of
health care, defense and private prison
industries all will skyrocket except the
income of poor and middle class citizens.
Unless we engage in public discourse and
resist the corroding inuence of the super
rich, we will not have a free and democratic
society.

Last-minute gifts
Editor,
At this time of year, when last-minute
shopping gets top billing in a lot of areas,
I would like to offer an idea to those needing a gift for their politically right-leaning
friends and relatives.
Print a set of calendars dated from 1951
to 1954 so they will know what date it is
when President-elect Trump and his staff
take ofce in January and turn the clocks
back as they Make America Hate Again.

Cybersecurity
Editor,
First, its the Russians, then the
Chinese, all hacking into our
computers.The Germans are now saying
that the Russians hacked into their systems
too, affecting their elections. This Putin
really is a superhero maybe we should
hire him.
Julian Assange and Edward Snowden say
it isnt the Russians.British intelligence
seems to agree with them. What U.S.
agency is responsible for cyber security? Is
it the FBI, CIA, NSA, Department of
Homeland Security or none of the above?
According to Bruce Schneider of The Wall

amongst and within the above mentioned
agencies.Meanwhile no one is minding
our security.Apparently, Congress and the
president arent doing much either.

I am writing in response to Cameron
Johnsons guest perspective A good year
in San Carlos in the Dec. 13 edition of the
Daily Journal.
Mayor Johnson, it might have been a
good year for you, but for me, not so much.
I now have a house being built next to me
that has taken away my afternoon sun. Six
trees that graced our neighborhood are now
gone. Instead,I look at a 7 foot side fence
and a two story wall 10 feet away from my
house. My wife is so disgusted with this
change and the changes you have championed on Laurel Street that she wants to
leave our fair town and possibly me. No,
dear sir, this is not a good year for me.
Please do me a favor and vote for the roll
back to 2011.

From the age of humanitys inception,


light has been our single greatest unifying
symbol of hope. Every holiday season, I am
reminded of this when I see countless
Christmas lights illuminate darkened city
streets and ame-lit candles burning bright
to commemorate holiday tradition.
For me, holiday lights are far more than
collections of wiring and brightly colored
bulbs. At least once per year, many of us display holiday lights, sharing with the world
our collective belief that no matter how dark
and desolate the night may appear, lights
will always continue to shine.
In the
Christmas tradition, we recognize the star that
brought light to
Bethlehems
eastern sky at the
birth of Jesus
Christ. The birth
of Jesus symbolizes the bright
lantern of hope
for all mankind
among the
Jonathan Madison
worlds darkest
corridors. This season reminds us that at our
core, humankind has the capacity to embody
as Jesus did an unending, unfailing and
all encompassing love for one another. In
fact, that was Jesus purpose here on Earth
to live as Gods incarnation. To exemplify
how to embrace love amidst a world in which
evil is pervasive.
In the Jewish faith, the Festival of Lights
commemorates Hanukkah. Hanukkah recognizes the day that Maccabean Jews rededicated the temple after regaining control of
Jerusalem. For eight nights, a new ame is
kindled on the Menorah, symbolizing a
divine and persistent light amidst the darkness of our ever-changing world.
The African-American community celebrates Kwanzaa, a day that commemorates
African culture, spirit and traditions. The
practice of lighting seven candles recognizes age-old principles enshrined in the
memory of the African culture. The holiday
commemorates values and concepts of ancestors, preserving its customs and resilient
spirit.
Consistent with these traditions, one of
my favorite biblical passages comes from
the book of Matthew 5:14. In this passage,
Jesus gave one of his profound Sermon on
the Mount before a crowd of hundreds. Jesus
explained that in spite of the aws intrinsic
to our humanity, that each of us possesses an
everlasting light. You are the light of the
world. Let your light shine before others,
he said, that others may see your good
deeds. This passage is unique as it shows us
that Jesus did not consider himself the only
light of the world. In fact, this passage
demonstrates that, despite our inevitable
shortcomings that come with being human,
each and every one of us possesses a ame in
the darkness of our ever-changing world.
The light that Jesus refers to is our vision,
spirit and purpose. Like the parable of the
ame above, each of us undoubtedly face
moments in which our ames are tested with
abrupt winds, discouraging rain and the
forceful storms of failure.
We should never fail to let the light from
our ames shine. Our ames will inevitably
be put to the test by wind and rain the discouragement of others, nancial difculties
and the dim prospects of making our visions
a reality. When darkness arises, we must
remember the law of impermanence that
turbulent winds and rainstorms cannot last
forever.
I truly believe that hope lives within each
and every one of us. And, if we are willing to
share it, we can experience hope on Earth
daily. Let our holiday gift this year to the
world be the very light from our ames.
Together, let us light the world with a new
hope.

Why a stronger U.S. dollar could


hinder Trumps economic plans
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON President-elect Donald


Trumps ambitious plans to revive exports,
return jobs to the United States and
increase oil drilling are running up against
a home-grown threat:
The surging U.S. dollar.
Since the Nov. 8 election, the dollar has
shot up 5 percent. An index that tracks the
dollar against other major currencies
reached a 14-year high after the election
before dipping a bit since then.
In part, the dollars gain reflects the U.S.
economys strength and investor confidence that Trump will accelerate growth by
slashing taxes and pumping money into
roads, bridges and other infrastructure. The
dollar could rise even more now that the
Federal Reserve has raised interest rates and
foresees three more hikes next year. With
rates far lower elsewhere in the world,
many investors will shift money to the
United States to capitalize on higher yields
a shift that could send the dollar even
higher.
Which creates a problem: An expensive
dollar makes U.S. goods costlier overseas

and imports cheaper


in the U. S. Thats a
recipe for more pain for
American manufacturers.
A high dollar can also
lead some U.S. multinational companies to
move operations to
countries where their
Donald Trump dollars go further.
And a high-priced dollar tends to shrink oil prices, thereby discouraging the increased energy production
that Trump has made a centerpiece of his
economic plans.
A strong dollar will make it more challenging to boost the international competitiveness of U. S. manufacturing, bring
back jobs and increase exports, says
Eswar Prasad, professor of trade policy at
Cornell University.
Even before the election, a comparatively strong dollar had slowed U.S. exports
for much of the past two years. Exports of
goods and services had peaked in October
2014 at $200 billion. The figure fell to
$179 billion in March before recovering
slightly as the dollar weakened.

Yellen to college grads: Best


job market in nearly a decade
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Federal Reserve Chair


Janet Yellen said Monday that college graduates are entering the strongest job market
the country has seen in nearly a decade, and
their degree is more important than ever.
Yellen said that with changes in the job
market such as technology and globalization, succeeding in the job market is
increasingly tied to obtaining advanced
degrees.
Those with a college degree are more
likely to find a job, keep a job, have higher
job satisfaction and earn a higher salary,
Yellen said in remarks at commencement
ceremonies at the University of Baltimore.
She said that annual earnings for college
graduates last year were on average 70 percent higher than those with only a high
school diploma. Back in 1980 that differ-

ence was only 20 percent, she said.


Yellen said the increasing demand for people
with college and graduate
degrees reflected the need
for higher technological
skills and the impact of
globalization,
which
allows goods and servicJanet Yellen es to be produced anywhere. She said those trends were likely to
continue.
Success will continue to be tied to education, in part because a good education
enhances ones ability to adapt to a changing economy, she said.
In her remarks, Yellen did not make any
comments about Fed interest-rate policies.
The Fed last week boosted its benchmark
rate by a quarter-point.

Deza leads surging NDB lady kickers to 5-0 start


By Terry Bernal

Athlete of the Week

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

There are a few reasons why the Notre


Dame-Belmont girls soccer team is in such
unfamiliar territory.
Through five games, the Tigers are an undefeated 5-0. Thats already more wins that the
team totaled all last year, finishing with a 3-141 overall tally in 2015-16. Its also the best
start since 2008-09 for a program that hasnt
finished above the .500 mark since that season.

First-year head coach


Paul McCalion is a great
addition. Formerly the
head coach at Castro
Valley High School
where he won over 400
games McCalion had
been coaching at Notre
Luka Deza
Dame
de
Namur
University the past four seasons before tak-

ing the job at NDB in October.


They told me they hadnt had a winning
team in over 10 years so I decided to give it a
whirl, McCalion said. So being 5-0 is pretty awesome.
Just as epic an addition, though, has been
the return of senior Luka Deza. Having
played two years of varsity soccer as an
underclassman, Deza opted not to play at
NDB last season, instead choosing to focus

on her club season with the De Anza Force.


Deza really took off last week when
McCalion switched the longtime midfielder
to the forward position. The senior has likely found a home there after scoring seven
goals over NDBs last two games. She
totaled four goals and an assist last Friday in
the Tigers 5-1 win over Capuchino. She followed that with all three of NDBs goals in a
3-1 victory over La Reina-Thousand Oaks.

McCaffrey to skip Sun Bowl Sac
and Serra
By Ralph D. Russo

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

or the rst time since 1994, I


stepped foot inside Hornet
Stadium at my alma mater of
Sacramento State when the Serra football
team took on Sierra Canyon for the 2-A
state championship game Saturday.
Just before I arrived at Sac State as a
junior college transfer for the 1992
spring semester, the stadium was renovated to accommodate the Sacramento Surge,
a member of the edgling World League
of American Football. About the only
thing that has changed in the ensuing 22
years since I graduated in 1994 is the
inclusion of a eld house on the south
end of the eld and
articial turf.
I had returned to
Sac State a couple
times since graduating and a lot had
changed, but it was
my rst foray into
the stadium since
working for the
State Hornet newspaper.
I didnt spend
much time reminiscing, however. I was there to cover the
game and what a game it turned out to be.
How do you know when its good? When
the dozen or so members of the media in
the press box were constantly oohing
and ahhing over the play on the eld. The
action was back and forth and there were a
handful of unbelievable juggling catches
by both teams, including one by Serra
running back Isiah Kendrick. A Sitaleki
Nunn pass went into the end zone where
Kendrick was well covered. The Sierra
Canyon defensive back got a hand on the
ball, tipping it up. Kendrick stayed with
the play, however, and hauled it in for the
score.
Unfortunately for Serra and its fans, the
Padres came up just short.
Understandably, there were a lot of tears
shed by the Padres players, and while Im
sure they were disappointed for a day or

Christian McCaffrey is done playing


college football even though Stanford has
one more game.
The star running back wants to prepare for
the draft and said on Twitter on Monday he
will not play in the Sun Bowl. The No. 16
Cardinal (9-3) face North Carolina (8-4) on
Dec. 30 in El Paso, Texas.
Very tough decision, but I have decided not
to play in the Sun Bowl so I can begin my
draft prep immediately, McCaffrey said. He
thanked his teammates for their support. It
means a lot to me. Go Cardinal!
Stanford receiver Trenton Irwin posted on
Twitter: The whole team supports
(at)CMccaffrey5 in everything and anything.
Hes been a leader to this team through the
easy times and tough times.
McCaffrey is the second prominent player
to make such a decision for the same reason.
LSU running back Leonard Fournette has said
he will not play in the Citrus Bowl.
I would do anything to play one more time
with my brothers in that scarlet and gray,
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott
posted on Twitter about players sitting out
bowl games.
McCaffrey said last month he would be
skipping his senior season to enter the NFL
draft. He was the Heisman Trophy runner-up in
2015 as a sophomore when he set the NCAA
record for all-purpose yards in a season.
For three years Christian has not only
been a great player, but a great teammate as
well, Stanford coach David Shaw said in a
statement. We wish him great success at the
next level, as we continue our preparation for
the Sun Bowl.
This season, McCaffrey missed a game
against Notre Dame with an undisclosed
injury, but finished the season strong. He had
at least 135 yards rushing in his final five
games and finished the season with 1,603
yards on the ground and 13 touchdowns.
I dont think it takes away from the fact
weve still got two pretty good football teams
that are going to play, Sun Bowl executive
director Bernie Olivas said. Yeah, it would
have been great to have a prolific runner like

49ers in danger of setting dubious record


By Josh Dubow
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SANTA CLARA About the only thing


left to determine for the San Francisco 49ers
will be if 2016 will go down as the worst
season ever in franchise history.
After losing their franchise-record 13th
straight game on Sunday in Atlanta, the
Niners (1-13) must win their final two
games to avoid matching, or breaking, the
team record for losses in a season.
San Francisco can tie the single-season
loss record reached in 1978, 1979 and 2004

I think they (the players) take responsibility.


Everybody does. Were not looking to blame people.
Were looking to try and find solutions in terms of
moving forward to rectify the situation.
Chip Kelly, 49ers head coach

by losing at the Los Angeles Rams on


Saturday. With a loss in that game, the
49ers can set the record with a loss in the
season finale at home on Jan. 1.
I dont think its the time right now
where we sit down and look at it and say,

All right. Lets evaluate from a 50,000 foot


above, take a look at the entire season,
coach Chip Kelly said Monday. Well have
time to do that once the seasons ended.
Right now, were just really on a week-toweek deal.

Kelly said the approach right now is the


same as it is every week: Evaluate the previous game, make the necessary corrections
and move on to the next opponent.
There is plenty to fix from the latest loss,
a 41-13 defeat that was the second-most
lopsided of the season for San Francisco.
The Niners fell behind 21-0 in the first
quarter, were held scoreless in the second
half for a third straight game and allowed
550 yards to the Falcons.
It can get difficult for them, Kelly said

Caada men claim title at

By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The Caada College men are on a mission


to re-establish a trajectory towards proving
they are among the states top community
college basketball programs, as they did two
years ago in reaching the California final
four.
Taking the tournament championship over
the weekend at Santa Rosa Junior Colleges
annual Kris Kringle Invitational is a mighty
good start.
The Colts (11-4) got past two state powerhouses, including host Santa Rosa in an 8680 overtime thriller in Fridays semifinals,
and Feather River 95-92 in Saturdays championship game to capture the title.
Transfer sophomore Will Green was named
the tourney MVP, totaling 51 points through
three games. Sophomore guard Mike
Pickney added 45 total points, including a
team-high 20 points in Saturdays championship game.
We had that confidence we know were talented, Caada head coach Mike Reynoso

said. It was really about us finding our


groove, playing together and playing
unselfish. Weve done a good job of that.
We still have a lot of work to do but we

Reynoso said the Colts got the matchup

boast one of Northern Calfornias better big

For her monster performance in back-toback games, Deza has been named Daily
Journal Athlete of the Week.
Honestly, from sophomore year to senior
year Ive been doing a lot of growing as a
player, Deza said. So Id say Im a different
kind of player since sophomore year.
Thats really saying something. As a sophomore she was already identified as a
Division I college prospect, committing to
play womens soccer at Cal. That puts her in
good company, so far as McCalions history
of coaching standout talent.
Among McCalions players while at Castro
Valley was Micaela Castain, who went on to
earn Pac-12 Player of the Year honors at
Washington State. He also coached Jenny
LaPointe, who went on to a great career at
Santa Clara University and now plays professional soccer in Germany.
Yet Dezas performance last week is one of
the best McCalion has ever seen at the high
school level.
Ive had numerous All-Americans, a Pac12 Player of the Year play for me, and yeah,
its definitely right up there, McCalion said.

Sam Erisman scored a career-high 29 points


in Menlos 67-53 win over Half Moon Bay.
Sam Eri s man, Menl o g i rl s bas ketbal l . One of the strongest scorers in San
Mateo County, Erisman put together the
best back-to-back games of her four-year
varsity career. She matched her career-high
of 28 points in a loss to Menlo-Atherton
last Friday. Saturday, she bounced back to
record a new career-high of 29 points in a
67-53 win over Half Moon Bay.
At 5-3, Deza still packs quite a wallop in
her kicking leg. She is a reliable marksman
from great distances. In fact, of her seven
goals last week, McCalion said the most
impressive was against Cap with a free kick
from 25 yards out near the corner, which she
placed over a four-player wall and well out of
the reach of the goalkeeper.
She can strike the ball well and has a very
great sense of where the goalkeeper is playing at all times, McCalion said.
Deza said she scored on two such goals over
the two games, and was more keen to be precise than she was about peppering the ball.
It was from a pretty tricky angle coming
from the right side, Deza said. In both cases
the goalie wasnt he tallest so I just had to work
the ball over the goalies head. It wasnt much
power, just lifting it to the top left corner.
While last year stood as NDBs worst since
2007-08 the Tigers won just two games
that year the absence of Deza was a massive loss. In her two previous seasons, NDB
posted a cumulative 18-21-1 record and fell
just one win shy of the .500 mark her freshman year.
Returning this year was about leaving her
mark as a senior, she said.
While Deza was impressed with the talent
in the Tigers ranks heading into opening
day, starting off on the best streak the program has seen in seven seasons wasnt something she expected.
I think opening day I had a pretty good
feeling about this team but Im surprised were
5-0, Deza said. Its been really successful.
And it hasnt really been like this in my time
playing and Im really happy Ive been able
to contribute.

Raiders eyeing bigger goals


after clinching playoff berth
By Josh Dubow
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ALAMEDA Oakland coach Jack Del Rio


got swamped with congratulatory messages
after the Raiders clinched their first playoff
berth in 14 years.
Fans had reason for excitement after more
than a decade of losing that featured 18 starting quarterbacks, nine head coaches and the
second-most losses in the league with 148.
Del Rios focus, however, is elsewhere, with
the Raiders (11-3) still needing two more wins
to clinch the division and a first-round bye
once they get to the postseason.
Im excited for the fans, Del Rio said
Monday. To be in the playoffs, and theres
been a drought here. We got here two years ago
and talked about winning the division and
being in the playoffs. The being in the playoffs part is there, the winning the division is
still to be determined. So we need to continue
to work on that, let the fans enjoy the other
part, but as a team weve got to get back to
work.
The Raiders had a very successful Sunday as
they watched Tennessee beat Kansas City 1917 on a last-second field goal to knock the
Chiefs out of first place in the AFC West, then
went out and beat San Diego 19-16 to clinch at
least a wild-card spot.
Oakland now turns its attention to
Saturdays home game against Indianapolis
(7-7). With wins over the Colts and then in the
season finale at Denver (8-6), the Raiders will
win the AFC West. They can also win the division with only one win, as long as the Chiefs
lose again.
Oakland also can earn the top seed in the

AFC with the combination of two wins and a


loss by New England.
Its a remarkable turnaround for a team that
started the 2014 season with 10 straight losses before turning things around after the hiring of Del Rio that offseason.
Del Rio came to a franchise that had building blocks in place in quarterback Derek Carr
and pass rusher Khalil Mack, the teams top
two draft picks in 2014, but little else.
But two strong free-agent classes, key draft
picks such as receiver Amari Cooper, and
development of players still here have helped
Oakland become one of the leagues top
teams. It made Del Rios proclamation of aiming to win a division a legitimate possibility.
It wasnt anything that I saw. We had a lot
of work to do, Del Rio said. Its a belief that
anything is possible when you get a group of
men to believe in each other and to buy in and
to work hard. Weve done that. Weve added to
the talent base and weve embraced the message.
It hasnt come easy this season. The Raiders
have needed seven fourth-quarter comebacks
to vault to the top of the division, starting
with the winning 2-point conversion in the
season opener at New Orleans that set the tone
for the year.
Carr has also led comeback wins over
Baltimore, Tampa Bay, Houston, Carolina,
Buffalo and San Diego to tie for the secondmost fourth-quarter comebacks in a season.
He has gotten help from a maligned defense
that, despite ranking 31st, allowing 6.07
yards per play, has not allowed a single point
on 11 drives in the final five minutes with the
opponent having a chance to tie or take the
lead.

SAN FRANCISCO Shortstop Jimmy


Rollins could be headed back to his native
Bay Area, agreeing to a minor league contract with the San Francisco Giants that
includes an invitation to big league spring
training camp.
General manager Bobby Evans confirmed
the deal Monday.
While the Giants infield is all but set,
San Francisco has learned the importance of
depth at all of those spots with injuries to
third baseman Eduardo Nunez down the
stretch and also second baseman Joe Panik
the past two seasons.

If Rollins makes the


team as a backup, he
would be playing in the
Bay Area regularly for the
first time in his career as
he enters his 18th season.
He played his first 15 seasons with the Phillies,
then one each with the
Jimmy Rollins Los Angeles Dodgers and
Chicago White Sox.
The 38-year-old batted .221 with two
home runs, eight RBIs and five stolen bases
last season for Chicago. He was born in
Oakland and went to school in nearby
Alameda.

two, the Padres can take pride in the fact
that they became the rst Serra football
team to compete for a state championship.
I asked Serra athletic director Dean Ayoob
early last week if this years Serra team was
the best in school history. He said it was
denitely in the argument, but coach
Patrick Walsh went one step better during
his post-game interview.
No doubt (its the best team), Walsh
said. They went the farthest (in the playoffs of any team in Serra history).
***
The Serra-Sierra Canyon ending was one
of the wackiest, most incredible endings of
a game Ive ever seen and if not for a questionable penalty on the Padres, they might
have actually had a chance to win it in miracle fashion.
As the nal seconds ticked off the clock
and the Trailblazers with the ball, they
called timeout with four seconds left, facing a fourth-and-1 at the Serra 37.
Now, thats a tricky thing. Sierra Canyon

of his players. Theyre human. Everybody
can kind of, when you start to look at it and
say, Hey, its not going the way we want to
get it going. But, the one thing I dont
think they do, I dont think they blame others.
I think they take responsibility.
Everybody does. Were not looking to
blame people. Were looking to try and find
solutions in terms of moving forward to rectify the situation.
The Niners were once again hampered by
injuries. One week after losing receiver
Torrey Smith to a concussion and tight end
Vance McDonald and center Daniel Kilgore
to season-ending injuries, San Francisco
lost several more players.
Receiver Quinton Patton (foot), linebacker Nick Bellore (elbow) and tight end
Blake Bell (shoulder) all left the game with
injuries and will not return this season.
Defensive back Jimmie Ward (shoulder),
center Marcus Martin (ankle) and defensive
lineman Glenn Dorsey (undisclosed) also
were hurt in the game and their status is
unknown.

Staley, who has missed the past two games

could not simply snap the ball and down it
because that would have stopped the clock
and turned the ball over on downs. Instead,
the Trailblazers quarterback took the snap
and started running backward. He got to his
35, saw the clock had ticked down to zero
and simply heaved the ball in the air.
One problem it was still a live ball.

As he released the ball, the players on the


Trailblazers sideline came pouring onto
the eld, with one player off the bench
catching the ball.
That would be an illegal touch. As the
entire press room broke into excited questions about the ramications of the play, a
ag was thrown by the ofcials.

Could Serra get the ball back and one,


untimed down from the Sierra Canyon 40?
Could the Padres get off a Hail Mary pass
and win the game?
Perhaps, but no one in the press box saw
the other ag on the other side of the eld.
When the head referee came out to explain
the penalties, an illegal substitution was
called on Serra the Padres apparently
had 12 men on the eld. Sierra Canyon was
called for illegal touching. The penalties
offset.
There was one more untimed down but
it was the Trailblazers ball. They took the
snap, kneeled on it and began celebrating
again.
As I was wandering around after the
game, I sidled up to Serra assistant coach
Rick Lavezzo, who Ive known for years.
Id really like to see if we had 12 men
on the eld, Lavezzo said. Just because a
guy came sprinting off, doesnt mean we
had 12.

Russian national soccer teams


are accused of doping cover-up
MOSCOW Players from
Russias under-21 national soccer
team had suspicious drug-test samples covered up, emails released
by a World Anti-Doping Agency
investigation show.
The emails, released this month
as part of WADA investigator
Richard McLarens report on
Russian doping, state that there
were five suspicious samples in
the Russian mens under-17 and
under-21 national teams in 2013
and 2014.
Another case in the Russian
league was allegedly covered up by
then-Sports Minister Vitaly
Mutko, who is also in charge of
the countrys World Cup preparations. The FIFA ethics committee
said Monday it will examine the
report thoroughly in response to
the allegations about soccer and
the role of Mutko, who sits on the
FIFA Council.
The allegations follow a tough
year for Russian soccer, which is
trying to prepare to host the 2018
World Cup but has faced criticism
over hooliganism involving fans
at the European Championship
and racism in the domestic game.

The doping cases in the Russian


national teams were all recorded as
clean by Moscow lab director
Grigory Rodchenkov after instructions from Sports Ministry
employee Alexei Velikodny to
save the players, McLarens
investigation found.
The records show that three
members of the Russian under-21
team gave suspicious samples at
the national training base shortly
before traveling to the 2013
European championship, with two
showing elevated testosterone
levels a key indicator of doping
and another testing positive for
cannabis. A fourth players sample
contained high traces of alcohol,
which isnt banned but seems to
have been included in the documents as a warning.
Rodchenkov and Velikodny discussed the players by name in
emails, in breach of confidentiality rules, and Velikodny instructed
the lab director to take no further
action.
It is not clear which players
gave the suspicious samples,
since their names have been
redacted. The Russian squad at the
tournament included some players
who have gone on to play for
Russias national team.

Trubisky, but I totally understand


where hes coming from. I still
hope he makes the trip and enjoys
the festivities we have for the
teams.
Trubisky, a junior, is still considering whether to come back for
another college season. He would
be one of the top quarterback
prospects in the draft if he does
leave early.
I think its smart on their part,
because its different when youre a
running back and youre taking all
the shots. So for them to just prep
for the NFL, I respect it because
theyre making the decision thats
best for them in their career,
Trubisky said. Just based on what
Im going through with my decision, I know they just didnt make
that decision. Theres probably a
lot of thought process that goes in

behind that.
The
6-foot,
200-pound
McCaffrey has been one of the
busiest ball carriers in college football over the last two seasons. He
has 672 touches from scrimmage
(590 rushes, 82 receptions) and
another 76 kick and punt returns.
With McCaffrey gone, Bryce
Love will likely get most of the carries for Stanford against North
Carolina. The sophomore from
Wake Forest, North Carolina, ran
for 664 yards and 7.4 per carry this
season. He had 129 yards and a
touchdown against Notre Dame,
when McCaffrey was out.
Theyre not going to change
what they do, North Carolina
coach Larry Fedora said about
Stanford. Theyre going to run the
ball and pound it at you and playaction pass you.

Patients who see women doctors


more likely to leave hospital alive
By Lindsey Tanner

About 11 percent of patients


treated mostly by women died
within 30 days of entering the
hospital, versus 11.5 percent of
those treated by men.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHICAGO What if your doctors gender


could influence your chance of surviving a
visit to the hospital?
A big study of older patients hospitalized
for common illnesses raises that provocative possibility and also lots of questions. Patients who got most of their care
from women doctors were more likely to
leave the hospital alive than those treated
by men.
The differences were small about 11
percent of patients treated mostly by
women died within 30 days of entering the
hospital, versus 11.5 percent of those treated by men. But the all-male research team
estimated that there would be about 32,000
fewer deaths each year in the U.S. if male
physicians performed at the same level as
their female peers.
The study didnt probe why there might be
these differences in survival. And Dr. Ashish
Jha, the lead author, said the study doesnt
mean patients should avoid him and all
other male physicians.
But he said male doctors could take a cue
from women doctors tendencies that might
contribute to better care. According to other
research, women doctors are more likely
than men to follow treatment guidelines,
provide preventive care more often and
communicate more with patients.
Jha said that it was important to better
understand the reasons behind the differences, and to share that information with all
physicians to improve care.
Jha, an internist and Harvard Medical
School professor, said he has not spoken to
his own patients about the study yet.
As a male physician, I have a stake in
this, Jha said.
The study was published Monday in JAMA
Internal Medicine.

The researchers looked at data involving


more than 1.5 million hospitalizations for
Medicare patients aged 65 and older between
January 2011 and December 2014. Patients
illnesses included pneumonia, heart failure,
intestinal bleeding, urinary infections and
lung disease.
All were treated by general internists in
the hospital. The researchers compared
results in patients who got most or all of
their care from women internists with those
who got most or all of their care from men.
Most patients survived and were sent
home within a month of treatment. But in
addition to better survival chances, those
treated by women doctors were slightly less
likely to be re-admitted to the hospital within that first month.
On average, women doctors were in charge
of fewer patients and some of their patients
werent as sick as those of male doctors, but
the researchers considered those factors and
still found a link between doctors gender
and patients survival differences.
Dr. Lisa Schwartz of the Dartmouth
Institute for Health Policy & Clinical
Practice said the study doesnt prove
whether doctors sex accounted for the
results. To make a stronger case, youd
need information on doctors practices in
the study, she said. For example, did
women physicians give patients with pneumonia antibiotics sooner than men physicians treatment that could potentially
improve survival chances, she said.

Medicare outpatients risk


higher bills for some procedures
WASHINGTON You pay less for outpatient treatment than for a hospital admission, right? Not necessarily in the topsyturvy world of Medicare billing, according
to a government report.
People entitled to benefits under Medicare
who had heart stents inserted as outpatients
faced hospital bills that were $645 higher
on average than those who had the same
kind of procedure as inpatients, the Health
and Human Services inspector general has
found. Stents are tiny mesh cages that prop

open narrow or weakened arteries. They usually are inserted through a tube thats threaded through an artery in either the groin or
the arm.
The beneficiarys share of costs averaged
$1,667 for an outpatient stent, compared
with $1,022 for an inpatient stent, the
report found. Investigators looked at hospital billing for 2013-2014.
In a formal response to the report that was
released Monday, Medicare said it has taken
steps to protect people from such disparities.

GIVING
Continued from page 1
Think globally, act locally, said
Samaritan House CEO Bart Charlow, who
commented on the difference between giving
to local nonprofit versus a national charity.
You can see it, you can feel it, its immediate.
You understand why what you gave was a real
value. When you give where you live, it really counts.
Samaritan House, LifeMoves, St. Vincent
de Paul of San Mateo, the Peninsula Humane
Society
and
SPCA,
Communities
Overcoming Relationship Abuse or CORA,
and Second Harvest Food Bank are a few
examples of charitable organizations relying
on donations.
Contributions such as gift cards, new or
gently used clothing, appliances, food, new
car seats, stocks or bonds, vehicles, diapers,
new bedding and sleeping bags, as well as
monetary donations are needed year-round.
But with the holidays in full steam, nonprofits are hoping the community will rally
behind the giving spirit and assist those in
need.
CORA Development Officer Marisa Binder
said donating to the San Mateo-headquartered
nonprofit can having a life-changing impact
on those overcoming abuse. Binder said
whether or not people are aware, most know
someone who has needed help as statistics
highlight one in four women and one in
seven men experience abuse.
When youre donating locally youre really helping your neighbor youre helping
kids that may be in school with your kids
Binder said. Making sure everyone has a safe
environment really benefits your community.

GYPSY
Continued from page 1
Tom Carney, a safety inspector for the South
San Francisco Fire Department who trained
her to help find survivors in the wreckage of a
disaster scene.
Carney, who also kept Gypsy as a pet when
off duty, remembered his canine companion
as a committed and enthusiastic worker.
Gypsy was an exceptional dog and not just
because she was mine, he said.
During her more than 10 years of community service, Gypsy contributed to emergency
response efforts in the wake of various hurricanes ripping through the Gulf Coast, searches for missing locals, building collapses
along the Peninsula and the San Bruno gas
pipeline explosion.
Despite the variety of challenging and
potentially dangerous scenarios faced in the

Around the holidays, CORA is especially


appreciative of gift cards such as for
Target, Safeway or gas stations so as to
provide clients with the ability to make decisions on what are their most pertinent needs.
The prospect of choice can be particularly
empowering to those who recently escaped
an abusive situation, Binder said.

Holidays cheer helps year-round


For many of the local nonprofits, the holiday season is critical to their year-round
work. LifeMoves manages shelters in San
Mateo and Santa Clara counties, and raises
almost half of its estimated $7 million in
annual private contributions during the holidays, said Amy Wright, vice president of
development.
Its imperative that we reach people during
the giving season to help us raise the funding
we need for programs year-round, Wright
said.
LifeMoves houses 750 people, nearly half
of whom are children, between Daly City and
San Jose. With sky-high housing costs, providing shelter and household goods can help
families save money and work toward stability.
Other than financial contributions, which
provide the most flexibility to meeting
clients needs, LifeMoves also accepts household items to furnish shelters or are given to
families moving out on their own. It needs
new or gently-used blankets or linens, brandnew pillows, dishes, silverware, pots and
pans, as well as functioning household items
like small appliances, Wright said.
Samaritan House is also hoping to appeal
to the communitys generosity as 70 percent
of the nonprofits budget is privately funded,
Charlow said.
Those donations are our lifeblood, he
said, later adding cash provides flexibility.
aftermath of a disaster, Carney said Gypsy
consistently demonstrated the capacity to
rise to the occasion. Wind, rain, rubble, disaster, tough conditions the rougher it was,
the more she loved it, said Carney.
Gypsy earned certification from the Federal
Emergency Management Agency as a search
and rescue canine. She trained multiple times
in a week and knew more than 35 commands.
She died earlier this month, partially due to
spinal injuries suffered as a result of her training, said Carney.
Beyond her notable commitment and
enthusiasm for work, Carney said Gypsy
offered a rare and valuable set of skills
because no county fire department outside of
South San Francisco keeps rescue dogs. For
years Gypsy was unique, until Carney recently began training her successor Allie.
Gypsy endured years of practice to hunt
through potentially chaotic sites in the
attempt to identify those who may still be
alive and suffering beneath tons of rubble and
debris. Much of her instruction came in set-

Donations from the community are what


enables us to be creative and nimble in meeting those needs of the folks that are in dire
distress.
The San Mateo-headquartered nonprofit
offers a range of programs, meals, shelter
services, financial literacy classes and more.
It accepts new or nearly new clothing for children and teens but not adults. It also needs
new sleeping bags, working electronics such
as cellphones or computers, bicycles, towels
and new home cleaning or hygiene products.
It accepts a variety of food or cooking items
that are listed on its website.

A variety of ways to give


Those looking to donate a used vehicle or
stock, who want to make a contribution from
a retirement account or want to list a nonprofit as a beneficiary to their estate, are also
encouraged to contact these charities directly.
HealthRight 360, which manages the
Womens Recovery Association in San
Mateo, also receives a good 35 percent of its
annual financial donations during November
and December, said Director of Advancement
Jeffrey Schindler. Outside of monetary support, the women and children served by the
nonprofit can also benefit from new or gently
used warm clothing, Schindler said.
For those who have larger household goods
theyd like to donate, St. Vincent de Paul
accepts a range of items in addition to money.
Along with clothing, the nonprofit takes furniture, working electronics like televisions
or defrosted refrigerators, books and more.
The nonprofit accepts donations at its various San Mateo County locations and pickups
can also be scheduled.
If you want to clean out your pantry or help
ensure thousands of needy families are well
fed, givers should consider Second Harvest
Food Bank. The nonprofit helps residents in
tings designed to replicate the aftermath of a
tragedy, where Carney said she continuously
developed and advanced her abilities.
It was a partnership because when we started the program, it was a bond and trust thing,
he said. And then every time we would go to
a training, we would build on that more and
more. After many years of working together
and honing Gypsys skills, Carney said the
South San Francisco Fire Department ultimately gained a reliable member capable of
providing critical services. Dogs can do a
lot and save a lot of lives, he said. They can
be a great tool in your toolbox.
Beyond the search assistance, Carney said
bringing Gypsy to local classrooms was a
great way to connect with students while promoting safety awareness. She also was a hit
when touring senior care facilities, as she was
able to adjust her behavior to best address her
audience, he said.
She was like a politician, he said. She
would go around a room and spend a minute
with everybody.Gypsy also loved to go on

San Mateo and Santa Clara counties, and contributes to other agencies such as Samaritan

For those wanting to help out a furry companion, the Peninsula Humane Society and
SPCA can turn a variety of donations into
support for needy animals. The PHS primarily thrives off monetary donations and volunteers. It also operates a Burlingame thrift
shop where proceeds from used clothing,
household items, furniture, jewelry and more
go toward benefiting the nonprofit.
PHS is the countys largest animal welfare
organization that operates independently,
meaning it receives no support from national
organizations, said spokeswoman Michele
Moyer.
PHS/SPCA provides warm beds, nutritious
food, veterinary care and loving attention for
the thousands of lost, stray, unwanted and/or
injured domestic and wild animals that come
through our doors each year. We depend on the
support of community members and concerned animal lovers to help us provide for
these animals in need, Moyer said in an
email.
Becoming a member, donating in a persons memory, bequests and other contributions given directly to the PHS are great ways
to help San Mateo County critters. The PHS
is also in urgent need of gently-used or new
towels, unstuffed blankets and sweaters for
shelter dogs, all of which can be dropped off
at their Coyote Point facility, Moyer said.
The best way to give this holiday season
and beyond is to contact the various nonprofits or visit their websites to see what items
are currently in demand, where or when to drop
off donations, and other information about
what is accepted. Visit samaritanhousesanmateo.org, corasupport.org, phs-spca.org,

fishing trips and would frequently commandeer a point where she could track all the
fish swimming below the surface of the
water, said Carney.
Nothing made Gypsy more satisfied than
working though, said Carney, who was regularly met on workdays by his partner ready
for another assignment.
She was a pet around the house, but in the
morning shes looking right at the door like
hey dad, lets go, he said.
After years of working and training together, Carney said he was left with the utmost
faith that his companions ability and work
ethic was infallible.
You just could not stump her on any problems because she would work it out, he said.
Though he believes the next dog trained to
assume Gypsys responsibilities will offer
her own distinct approach to the job, Carney
acknowledged it will not quite be the same
without his former partner.
There is going to be a vacuum, he said.
There is going to be a vacancy.

Study: Women increasingly


use pot during pregnancy
By Lindsey Tanner
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Losing some synapses is not necessarily a bad thing. It happens during a hormonal surge in adolescence, producing more
specialized and efficient brain circuits. The researchers suspect that could be happening in the pregnant women.

Brain changes in pregnancy,


may help preparing for baby
By Malcolm Ritter
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Pregnancy affects not


only a womans body: It changes parts
of her brain too, a new study says.
When researchers compared brain
scans of women before and after pregnancy, they spotted some differences
in 11 locations. They also found hints
that the alterations help women prepare for motherhood.
For example, they might help a
mother understand the needs of her
infant, Elseline Hoekzema, a study
author at Leiden University in the
Netherlands, explained via email.
The women were also given memory
tests, and they showed no signs of
decline.
Hoekzema, a neuroscientist, began
working on the study while at the
Autonomous University of Barcelona
in Spain. She and colleagues present
the results in a paper released Monday
by the journal Nature Neuroscience.
The study includes data on 25
Spanish women scanned before and

after their first pregnancies, along


with 20 women who didnt get pregnant during the study. The brain
changes in the pregnancy group
emerged from comparisons of those
two groups.
The results were consistent: A computer program could tell which women
had gotten pregnant just by looking at
results of the MRI scans.
And the changes, first documented
an average of 10 weeks after giving
birth, were mostly still present two
years after childbirth. Thats based on
follow-up with 11 study participants.
Further work showed theyre a motherhood thing: No brain changes were
seen in first-time fathers.
Based on prior research findings, the
researchers think the brain changes
happened during pregnancy rather than
after childbirth.
Whats going on? Hoekzema and
colleagues think the differences result
from sex hormones that flood the
brain of a pregnant woman. In the 11
places, the MRI data indicate reductions in volume of the brains gray

matter, but its not clear what that


means. For example, it could reflect
loss of brain cells or a pruning of the
places where brain cells communicate,
called synapses.
Losing some synapses is not necessarily a bad thing. It happens during a
hormonal surge in adolescence, producing more specialized and efficient
brain circuits. The researchers suspect
that could be happening in the pregnant women.
Some study results hint that such
upgrades may prepare a woman for
motherhood. One analysis linked
brain changes to how strongly a
woman felt emotionally attached to
her infant. And when women viewed
pictures of their babies, several brain
regions that reacted the most were
ones that showed pregnancy-related
change.
In addition, the affected brain areas
overlapped with circuitry thats
involved in figuring out what another
person is thinking and feeling. Thats
a handy ability for a mother tending to
an infant.

CHICAGO U.S. women are increasingly using marijuana during pregnancy, sometimes to treat morning sickness,
new reports suggest. Though the actual numbers are small,
the trend raises concerns because of evidence linking the
drug with low birth weights and other problems.
In 2014, almost 4 percent of pregnant women said theyd
recently used marijuana, up from 2.4 percent in 2002,
according to an analysis of annual drug use surveys.
Dr. Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute on
Drug Abuse, said the results raise concerns and urged doctors
and other health care providers to avoid recommending the
drug for pregnant women. Volkow commented in an editorial published online Monday with the study in the Journal of
the American Medical Association.
A separate study in the same journal found that almost 10
percent of adult marijuana users in the United States 3
million people have used it at least partly for medical
reasons; 20 percent of these users live in states where medical marijuana isnt legal.
Volkow noted that laws legalizing medical marijuana in
29 states and Washington, D.C. do not list pregnancy-related conditions among allowed uses. But the laws also dont
prohibit that use and dont include warnings about possible
harms to the fetus, she said.
Strong evidence of harms is limited, but besides low birth
weights, newborns whose mothers used marijuana while
pregnant may face increased risks for anemia and other
problems requiring intensive care. Memory and attention
problems also been found in older children whose moms
used marijuana in pregnancy, Volkow noted.
How marijuana might lead to those problems is unclear
but Volkow said one theory is that it might interfere with
formation of nerve cells and circuits in the brain during
fetal development.
The American College of Obstetricians and
Gynecologists discourages marijuana use by women who
are pregnant or breastfeeding.

UNEASE
Continued from page 1
tion experts, nonprofits, school districts and elected officials are considering how to address an influx of concerns
from minority groups who do not have a
path to citizenship.
For a short time, Soto lived without
fear of deportation after registering
under President Barack Obamas immigration policy the Deferred Action for
Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. She is
one of the countrys many Dreamers
whove benefited from Obamas
Development Relief and Education for
Alien Minor Act.
But after Nov. 8, 2016, for the first
time in her life Soto said she understood
the phrase America is becoming a
scary place. Now, the personal information Soto and others provided
through DACA could be used against
them if the new president drops Obamas
executive action.
Now the government has all the
information, names, addresses of kids
who applied for DACA. Now theres the
possibility they could use that information against [us], Soto said. Thats
very scary if it turns out Donald Trump
wants to get rid of DACA.
Its a frightening predicament for
Soto whose ability to remain in the
only country shes ever known may
hinge on whether Trump makes good on
sweeping immigration changes he
promised during a campaign marked by
extreme rhetoric.

Growing fear
Since the election, weve definitely
gotten a lot of requests from schools and
some faith-based or community-based
organizations for us to go out and do
presentations informing them about
what their rights are and what we expect
could happen in the new administration
in terms of immigration, said Sheryl
Munoz-Bergman, program director with
the International Institute of the Bay
Area, or IIBA, which provides low-cost
immigration services.
The institute has partnered with San
Mateo Countys Human Services
Agency to offer workshops and is one of
many referrals available through the
countys newly formed Office of
Immigrant Support and Coordination.
For many, citizenship is out of reach.
Even for those who may have family
who are citizens and could sponsor
them, the process can take decades. One
of the toughest things is explaining
this to immigrant youth whose DACA
status could be at risk, Munoz-Bergman
said.
They gave detailed information
about themselves, their family members
and where they lived. They gave that
information to the United States government in order to access this protection, and now its unclear what can hap-

pen with that information or how at risk


theyre going to be, she said. A lot of
the DACA recipients, all they know is
life under the Obama administration.
They dont remember when President
Bush was in office or the ICE raids or
enforcement actions that were prevalent
in our community when they grew up.
For most of them, the United States is
the only country they know.
Soto falls into that category, but shes
not about to let it hold her back. The
Sequoia High School student was invited to attend a recent town hall meeting
hosted by U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, DSan Mateo, to talk about her background.
Im not just a label, Im not just a statistic, Soto said.
Speier agreed, noting Soto has
known no other country but the United
States of America, she is an American.
Speier described San Mateo County as
a humane region and was pleased to see
many non-immigrants attend the meeting with an interest in how they could
help. Speier said shes hopeful that the
estimated 750,000 Dreamers wont be
put at risk after being promised protection for at least two years.
But like many of her fellow congressional Democrats, Speier said she is
concerned for the law-abiding immigrants who work vital jobs and are members of the community.
Immigrants and American citizens
are anxious about the repercussions of
this election, Speier said, adding she
and her colleagues must be prepared to
respond if Trump implements destructive policies. If youre a law-abiding
person in our community, and you have
children who are U.S. citizens or
Dreamers, we need to keep families
intact.

County support
Speier and other San Mateo County
officials emphasized the value of providing mental health services for
Dreamers as well as the community
showing support for their fellow neighbors.
Warren Slocum, president of the San
Mateo County Board of Supervisors,
said his district has a high number of
immigrants anxious about their futures.
He urged more know your rights
events and pointed to resources outlined
by the countys Office of Immigrant
Support and Coordination. County officials have also worked with local
schools as the county helped draft a resolution districts may adopt to emphasize theyll protect privacy and wont
collect students immigration-status
information.
Slocum said officials should continue
reassuring immigrants that theyre welcome in San Mateo County.
I know theres a lot of distrust in the
community just generally about government, so we should reassure people that
we stand with you and that many within
the county are aware of these issues and
are working toward providing support,

Slocum said. Certainly singling out


one ethnicity has no place in our world,
so were prepared.
Munoz-Bergman said San Mateo
County can take a stronger stance by
declaring itself a sanctuary county
meaning it would not proactively cooperate with U.S. Immigration and
Customs Enforcement. She also noted
the need to support new state legislation
proposing guaranteed legal representation to immigrants facing deportation.
Even with state or local action, she
emphasized the recent election has left
many fearing challenges ahead.
We just dont know what to expect,
Munoz-Bergman said. The presidentelect is unprecedented in so many
aspects and he said a lot of things during
the campaign and after his election. Its
hard to know which of those things hes
going to follow up on.

Mending wounds
Soto said shes no longer sure creating a pathway to citizenship would
resolve one of the most disheartening
things an increased tenor of racism
and discrimination.
It was really scary knowing that people already had that hate in them and
that this election just brought it out,
Soto said. I dont think giving me
papers is going to change that. I think
it takes more than just allowing someone to become a citizen.
At this point, most in her family have
varied immigrations status. Her two
older sisters are in college, one preparing for medical school, and their
younger brother was born in the United
States.
Like many undocumented immigrants, her family faces social and
financial challenges. Soto recalled how
her mother suffered wage theft while
working as a cleaner. Her father works
long hours at a local grocer where hes
been employed for the last 17 years.
Currently, six family members are living in a garage and, at one point, Soto
worked 30 hours a week, on top of
school, trying to help them make ends
meet.
Now, shes hoping to secure a scholarship as she considers college. Shes
interested in studying criminal justice
or immigration law; but her ultimate
goal is to continue advocating to make
the only home she knows return to feeling safe.
I would like people to know, whether
you support immigration reform or not,
I would like there to be a sense of
respect. A sense of respect for people
who are getting up really early in the
morning, who are making your coffee,
who are gardening. I would like there to
be a sense of respect for people who
risked their lives to cross the border,
Soto said. I think if there was that
respect, I think our country wouldnt be
as scary.
