Parents worry over losing advanced math classes


San Mateo-Foster City Elementary School District revamps offerings because of Common Core
By Angela Swartz
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Reducing and potentially eliminating math classes such as algebra and geometry in the San
Mateo-Foster City Elementary
School District is sparking concern for parents who want their
children to be prepared to take

advanced courses in high school.


With the new shift to Common
Core standards that focus more on
the use of technology in the classroom and projects, the district said
it is moving away from offering
more advanced courses like introductory algebra and geometry
courses. This is cause for worry for
parents that want their children to
move on to classes like advanced

placement calculus courses.


Prior to the change, students frequently took geometry in middle
school, but the majority of middle
schoolers can only take algebra
and there are significantly fewer
students taking the subject. The
pre-Common Core math track for
an average student was sixth-grade
math, pre-algebra in seventhgrade, algebra I in eighth-grade,

geometry in ninth-grade, algebra


II in 10th-grade, pre-calculus in
11th-grade and advanced placement math courses in 12th-grade.
Currently, there is a geometry
class at each of the districts three
middle schools, Bowditch, Borel
and Abbott. A fourth class of students from Abbott are going to
Hillsdale High School to take
geometry. There are 10 algebra

classes being offered districtwide,


said Molly Barton, assistant
superintendent for student services.
The proposed common-core
math pathway for an average student starts with Common Core
math in middle school, then follows the algebra I, geometry,

Bed burner back in jail awaiting sentencing


DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT

A 21-year-old Redwood City woman who


has been housed in a state psychiatric facility pending sentencing for torching her exboyfriends bed with him in it will finish
the wait in the county jail because the center
no longer wants to house her.
The California Psychiatric Transitional
Facility kept Jacqueline Alexandra Rivera as
a courtesy but on Friday a judge ordered her
back into custody on no bail until a Dec. 19
sentencing hearing, Chief Deputy District
Attorney Karen Guidotti said.
Rivera was also ordered to keep taking her

medication.
Rivera is facing up to
five years in prison after
pleading no contest to
felony arson and assault.
She
was
originally
charged with attempted
murder and burglary but
changed her plea after a
stint in a state mental
Jacqueline
facility.
Rivera
In the early morning of
April 26, 2012, Rivera allegedly knocked
on the first-floor bedroom window of the
San Mateo home where her 21-year-old ex-

boyfriend lived with his parents and sister.


After he reportedly declined multiple
requests to talk about their relationship, the
man later told police he awoke roughly two
hours later to find his mattress on fire. He
screamed for his father who put out the
flames with a garden hose.
Two weeks later, the man contacted
authorities after Riveras friend text messaged him to say his ex-girlfriend was
responsible.
Rivera confessed to her friend that she
sneaked into his home and ignited the bed
because he cheated on her, according to
prosecutors.

Driver pleads not guilty for crash that hurt kids, teacher

For Obama, bumpy road


to orders on immigration
By Julie Pace
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON President Barack


Obamas sweeping immigration executive
orders cap a turbulent, six-year quest to
make headway on a thorny issue that has at
times put the White House at odds with some
of its fiercest supporters.
To those who argue the actions are long
overdue or dont go far enough, Obama pins
the blame solely on Republicans who
oppose broader legislation. But Obama
himself has contributed to the delays, making political calculations that left legislative efforts languishing throughout his first
term and paused the promise of executive
action in his second.
In recent months, the protracted process
has been aimed in part at finding more
favorable political terrain to unveil measures that spare as many as 5 million people
in the U. S. illegally from deportation.
However, Obamas decision to ultimately
wait until after the midterm elections to
exert his presidential powers has only
heightened the anger from victorious
Republicans, who have suggested responding with everything from lawsuits to
impeachment.
The action hes proposed would ignore
the law, would reject the voice of the voters
and would impose new unfairness on lawabiding immigrants all without solving
the problem, said Sen. Mitch McConnell,
the Kentucky Republican who is soon to
become Senate majority leader.

Iran nuke talks stalled, despite Kerry efforts


By George Jahn and Matthew Lee
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

VIENNA Contentious nuclear talks


between world powers and Tehran hit a new
snag Friday after Iran apparently again
turned down U.S. demands for concessions,
leaving negotiations in limbo just three
days before a deadline for a deal.
In hours of high drama reflecting the delicate stage of the talks, both U.S. Secretary
of State John Kerry and Iranian Foreign
Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif first made,
then cancelled plans to walk away from the
talks at least temporarily for additional consultations. Such developments could
have meant possible progress, suggesting
that the Iranians needed political approval
from Tehran to move forward.
After initially announcing he was flying
to Paris, Kerry suddenly reversed course and
scheduled a new meeting with Zarif late
Friday, with the two talking into the
evening for more than two hours.
Iranian media initially spoke of a new
U.S. initiative that Zarif needed to have his
superiors sign off on, but the Iranian diplomat dashed those hopes. There have been a
lot of discussions in Vienna, but there were
no remarkable offers and ideas to take to
Tehran, Zarif told Irans official IRNA news
agency.
The remark reflected the probability that
substantial obstacles remain in the way of a
deal that would cap Irans nuclear program in
exchange for sanctions relief a view reinforced by senior diplomats of other nations
taking part in the negotiations.
The Russian Foreign Ministry said that a
phone call between Kerry and Russian
Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov revealed

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry makes a phone call as he leaves a meeting in Vienna, Austria.
that more efforts are needed to meet
Mondays deadline for a deal. And after consulting in Vienna with participants in the
talks, British Foreign Secretary Philip
Hammond spoke of a very significant gap
between the parties.
Kerry and Zarif have both emphasized that
there has been no discussion about extending the talks for a second time if the
deadline is not met. At the same time, the
stubborn differences increasingly suggest
little choice than to agree to continue talking past Monday or to call the negotia-

tions a failure, something neither side can


afford to do.
Breaking off the talks would embolden
Iran to end a freeze on nuclear activities it
says it needs for civilian purposes, but
which can also be used to make atomic arms.
Tehran could turn instead to expanding its
atomic program, reigniting the threat of
Israeli and potential U.S. military action.
Even if the deadline is missed, both sides
hope they can persuade skeptics at home
that enough progress was achieved to warrant further pursuit of a full deal.

Hillary Clinton backs Obama immigration move

NEW YORK Hillary Rodham Clinton


voiced support Friday for President Barack
Obamas use of executive actions to protect
about 5 million immigrants from deportation, setting up a sharp contrast with
Republicans on an issue that could play a
leading role in the next presidential campaign.
I think the president took an historic step
and I support it, Clinton said in an appearance at the New York Historical Society,
embracing her fellow Democrats moves to
address immigration.
The former secretary of state, a potential
Democratic presidential candidate, said
Obamas actions were in line with previous

Marine with robotic


leg braces gets Bronze Star
SAN DIEGO A Marine who was left paralyzed by a snipers bullet in Afghanistan
fulfilled a promise to himself on Friday and
walked using robotic leg braces in a ceremony at Camp Pendleton, where he was awarded a Bronze Star.
The crowd of 300 Marines was silent as
Capt. Derek Herrera walked. All that was
heard was the faint whirring of electric
motors from the device.
Herrera then stood, holding onto one
crutch. With his other hand, he saluted his
commanding officer, who presented him the
award.
Your drive and determination are great
and you will continue to do great things,
Lt. Col. John J. Lynch, commanding officer
of the Marine Corps Special Operations
Command, told him at Fridays ceremony.
Herrera had vowed to walk at the event
that also marked his retirement after 8 1/2
years in the military, saying he wanted to
leave the Marine Corps the same way he
joined. He has gone from fighting on the
battlefield to becoming a strong advocate
for veterans.

Americans to find a common purpose.

Around the state


Berkeley, Santa Cruz
students protest fee hikes
BERKELEY Student protesters
remained inside buildings at two University
of California campuses on Friday as their
demonstrations against tuition hikes
stretched into another day.
A peaceful sit-in began on Wednesday in
hallways and lobbies at Wheeler Hall on the
UC Berkeley campus. Dozens of students
remained Friday, KTVU-TV reported.
UC Santa Cruz spokesman Guy Lasnier
said an unknown number of students spent
Thursday night in the humanities and social
sciences building on that coastal campus.
A spokeswoman from UC Berkeley was
not immediately available to comment.
Classes were held Thursday as scheduled at
both campuses. Lasnier said then that UC
Santa Cruz officials were locating alternative rooms for classes scheduled Friday.
The UC Board of Regents voted 14-7 on
Thursday to approve increases of as much as
5 percent in each of the next five years
unless the state devotes more money to the
10-campus system.
Berkeley students have been sleeping in
the Wheeler building and say they want to
make certain a 21-year-old student arrested
at a regents committee meeting on
Wednesday wont face charges.
They have vowed to stay in the building
until the regents rescind the tuition increases.

California unemployment
unchanged at 7.3 percent
SACRAMENTO Californias unemployment rate for October was 7.3 percent,
which remain unchanged from the previous
month even as the state increased payroll
jobs.
The state Employment Development
Department released figures Friday showing
steady gains since the jobless rate hit a
recession-era high of 12. 4 percent in
February 2010.
Nationally, the unemployment rate
decreased in October to 5.8 percent.
California added 41,500 jobs for a total of
15.5 million nonfarm payroll jobs last
month. That followed a loss of 14,200 jobs
in September.
Professional and business services posted
the largest increase over the month, adding
12,500 jobs. Mining, logging and financial activities were among the sectors
reporting declines.
Unemployment claims were roughly the
same. The state reported 392,093 people
receiving unemployment benefits in
October, down just slightly from the previous month.

Islamic State groups drive for Kobani is blunted


By Zeina Karam
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BEIRUT More than two


months into its assault on
Kobani, the Islamic State group is
still pouring fighters and
resources into trying to capture
the besieged Syrian Kurdish town,
but the drive has been blunted.
Helped by more than 270
airstrikes from a U.S.-led coalition, the border towns unwavering Kurdish defenders are gaining
momentum a potentially bruising reversal for the extremists
who only a few weeks ago
appeared to be unstoppable.
The setback in Kobani is a
statement of IS groups vulnerability, said David L. Phillips, an
expert on Kurdish issues.
Retired Marine Gen. John Allen,
the U.S. envoy for the international coalition fighting the
Islamic State militants, said the
group continues to mass around
Kobani, creating more targets for
the U.S. and its allies.
ISIL has, in so many ways,
impaled itself on Kobani, he said
in an interview Wednesday in
Ankara with the Turkish daily
Milliyet, using an acronym for the
Islamic State group.
An early focus of the U.S. operation against the Islamic State
group, the dusty and remote town
in northern Syria has emerged as a
major test in the propaganda war.
Kobani has been under attack
since mid-September, when the
Sunni Muslim extremists seized a
series of villages and much of the
town. Most of Kobanis 60,000
residents fled to neighboring
Turkey in the first few days of the
offensive, amid expectations that
it would fall quickly.
But the fate of Kobani soon
became tied to the success of the
coalition campaign against the
Islamic State group. A combina-

U.S., Turkey still not in sync on Syria


By Deb Riechann

ISTANBUL U. S. Vice
President Joe Biden on Friday
became the latest in a parade of
U. S. officials trying to push
Turkey to step up its role in the
international coalitions fight
against Islamic State extremists.
His visit follows weeks of public bickering between the two
NATO allies. The Turkish president insists if the U.S. wants his
help, it must focus less on fight-

ing IS militants and more on toppling Syrian President Bashar


Assad. Turkish President Recep
Tayyip Erdogan wants the U.S.led coalition to set up a security
zone in northern Syria to give
moderate fighters a place to
recoup and launch attacks.
The U.S. has no appetite to go
to war against Assad and has said
a no-fly zone against Syrias air
force is a no-go.
Turkey has pledged to train and
equip moderate Syrian forces on
its soil, but no details have been

announced by either side. U.S.


and Turkish officials have discussed the coalitions desire to
use Turkeys Incirlik Air Base for
U.S.-led operations against IS
militants, but Turkey has made
no public decision about
Incirlik.
From the no-fly zone to the
safety zone and training and
equipping all these steps have
to be taken now, Erdogan said
Wednesday. The coalition
forces have not taken those steps
we asked them for.

tion of concentrated airstrikes and


the arrival late last month of a
group of 150 Iraqi peshmerga
forces with advanced weapons

blunted the edge of the IS offensive.


The U. S. has also dropped
weapons and other supplies to the

Kurdish fighters, the first time it


has done so in Syria in the course
of the countrys four-year conflict.
Kobani-based activists say

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Kurdish fighters have made small


but steady advances in the past
two weeks following the arrival of
the peshmerga forces. Last week,
Kurdish fighters known as the
YPG seized a hill that overlooks
part of the town. On Tuesday, they
captured six IS-controlled buildings and confiscated a large
amount of weapons and ammunition.
The front lines are more defined
now. We have a more organized
and coherent defense strategy, and
Daesh advances have been halted
but the danger remains, said
Kurdish activist Mustafa Bali,
referring to the Islamic State
group by an Arabic acronym. IS,
however, still controls about a
quarter of the heavily damaged
town, and the balance of power is
still tenuous.
Kurdish officials have said the
YPG was giving coordinates to the
peshmerga forces who provide
cover to their fighters by shelling
IS positions.
In a joint news conference
Friday with Turkish Prime
Minister Ahmet
Davutoglu,
Kurdish Regional Government
President Massoud Barzani said
the peshmerga would consider
sending reinforcements to Kobani
if needed, but he noted the YPG
fighters are making strides on the
battlefield as it is.
The more than 270 airstrikes in
and around Kobani by the U.S. and
its allies since Sept. 23 are far
more than have been carried out on
any other target in Syria or Iraq,
according to the U. S. Central
Command. The area around the
Mosul Dam in Iraq is a distant second, with 156 airstrikes since
Aug. 8.
Allen said the air attacks have
killed well over 600 IS fighters
a casualty figure believed to be
the groups biggest losses in
Syria or Iraq.

My dilemma
By Marina Kravtsova

could never imagine that I would


have to choose between my
school and my sons school!
However, today, I am facing this
dilemma: Im a student of San Mateo
Adult School, which is the biggest
adult school in the Bay Area; my son
is interested in studying at Design
Tech High School, a new charter
school, which wants to use space at
the adult school.
I know a good high school is
important for teens. I also want my
son to have the best opportunity to
get educated. However, I also know if
I had not been studying at the San
Mateo Adult School, I would never
have been able to bring my son to
the school at which he would love to
study. Simply, I would not have been
able to nd and read information
about d.tech. I could not have been
able to understand their presentation
and ask them questions during the
open house. Moreover, I never could
have even learned about that school.
And I am not an exception. Many of
our students are parents or grandparents. We, parents, are making decisions whether our children will enroll
in any school. We help our children
with their homework, and we volun-

teer at our childrens schools.


Without studying
at the adult school
we could not have
been able to understand anything
about the school
system here.
The San Mateo
Adult School serves more than 7,000
students every year and provides
many different courses, such as ESL,
computer, citizenship, high school
diploma and GED programs, and Fifty
Plus classes (classes for seniors). The
adult schools well-qualied ESL program includes grammar, conversation
and writing classes, and it is attended
by approximately 4,500 immigrants.
For most of the immigrant parents, it
is crucial that there are not only
evening ESL classes, but also morning and afternoon classes. It means
that parents can study English while
their own children are at schools,
too.
Today, our adult school is an affordable, convenient and exible place
for numbers of immigrant parents.
Moreover, it is a very special place
for every student because of its friendly atmosphere. However, it will not
be the same if it is moved out. In that

Guest
perspective
case, not only would a lot of adults
would lose the opportunity to learn
English, get knowledge about U.S.
culture and become helpful members
of the Bay Area community, but their
children also would lose opportunity
to become successful future students
of many schools, including Design
Tech High School. Parents education
strongly affects childrens ability to
adapt to their new country and succeed
in their school life. That goes without
saying: If we care about the future, the
San Mateo Adult School must exist.
Originally from Russia, Marina
Krav tsov a came to the United States in
summer 2011 and became a San Mateo
Adult School student in fall 2011. She
started in low beginning ESL and is
now a student in high adv ance. She is a
child psy chologist and a mother of two
boy s who attend Burlingame public
schools.

Letters to the editor


The most
fundamental right we have
Editor,
I just read the column The power of
one individual by Jonathan Madison
in the Nov. 15 edition of the Daily
Journal.
His last paragraph explains it very
well: Our country becomes less and
less reective of a real democracy when
fever voters exercise what is arguably
the most fundamental right they have
the right to vote. This is so
important of an action, preventing our
country from becoming a dictatorship
in which just a few people take over
governing.

(Congress, past presidents, theU.S.
Supreme Court, etc.) which immigration laws he should enforce and which
ones to ignore.
Dictatorships are built upon failed
humans like Obama. So, instead of
listening to U.S. democratically elected Congressional/Senate representatives, Chairman Obama decides in
backroom meetings with mostfavored Hispanic advocacy groups
that he wont deport illegal immigrants with no left toe, or those with
cleft lips, or left-handed illegals or
whatever criteria the king imposes. If
others object, who cares thats how
emperors act.
Republicans nationally were swept
into House/Senate positions in
November 2014 because Chairman
Obama threatened unilateral immigration action.But, Obama actually
doomed these 6 million illegals
because after coming out of the shadows to register their identities and
addresses, in two years a new president will immediately and simply
deport these easily identiable people.Czar Obama doomed them as the
nal act of the worst president ever.

Not whos right,


but whats right

s I was leaving the University of San Francisco


Law School campus this week, a fellow student
approached me in the hallway. Grabbing my
shoulder to get my attention, he sternly uttered that he
had seen my post on Facebook the night before praising
U.S. Sen. Rand Paul as a 2016 presidential hopeful. He
appeared abrasive and ready for an ardent discussion.
As I braced myself for a contentious discussion, he
cheerfully said, I completely agreed! I mean I am a
liberal Democrat and would certainly consider supporting
Paul as president in 2016. He went on to contend how
much he believed that Pauls
policies could benefit the country. Catching my breath, I
responded that I was happy he
took the time to read my post.
I assured him that I believed in
Sen. Pauls ideas, regardless of
his party affiliation. His
response, Youre right. Its
not about whos right, but
whats right.
If only more voters shared
the same sentiment, I thought
Jonathan Madison
to myself. Although the significant rise in independent voters this year alone shows
that more are continuing to vote based on what they
believe is right beyond party affiliations, the party line
voting trend still continues to show that party lines are
often the determining factor in how a person votes.
Still, the 2014 election results tell us something very
important. Given that Republicans are outnumbered by
Democrats 43 percent to 28 percent in voter registration
in the state of California, 2014 marked the most successful year Republicans have had in California statewide
elections in the past 20 years, and in national elections
since World War II. Political pundits such as Charlie
Cook suggest that the Nov. 4 election results are in large
part attributed to a low voter turnout by Democrats. He
also pointed out that the Republican tide that swept the
U.S. Senate majority was a wave and not a tsunami,
implying that the election results could be short-lived. I
beg to differ and here is why.
Beyond ideological debates and political speculations,
both the Republican and Democratic parties have hit a
record low number of registered voters, according to a
2014 Gallup poll. Only this time, its not just because of
a lack of voter participation. Voters are not merely
flocking to the other side after two to four years of dissatisfaction with their loyal party, as they often tend to
do. Instead, voters are more frequently deciding to withdraw from each party and register with a third party or
the Decline to State pool. This tells us that many independent voters are choosing to vote Republican both
state and nationwide. There is nothing that suggests this
trend will not continue until the swinging voter pendulum called the American electorate decides it is time to
move the country in another direction.
The bottom line is that the voting trend on Nov. 4
tells us that more voters believed it was the right time to
move the country in the right direction. I do not suggest that right is always right, but that there appears
to be a shift in voter sentiments nationwide with regard
to the GOP. And, make no mistake, this is an opportunity the GOP cannot afford take for granted. Voters have
given the party a rare opportunity to refine its message
and adequately represent every socioeconomic segment
of the population.
Indeed, it feels like a new day when people of my generation witness liberal students in the heart of San
Francisco agreeing with many of the ideals of a
Republican presidential hopeful. But lets not forget that
California was a red state just 25 years ago. Whats
more, if there is anything we should know more about
the American electorate, it is that the voter pendulum
swings in waves and tsunamis.
More importantly, it appears that beyond the present
historically low rate of voter turnout and disengagement,
at least some voters are deciding to vote for whats right,
rather than whos right something that should always
be the determining tide in an election cycle.

The stock market closed out its fifth


straight week of gains with another
record high on Friday.
The Dow Jones industrial average and
Standard & Poors 500 index carved out
all-time highs, extending the markets
gains for the week. It was the third
record close for the Dow in the week
and the fourth for the S&P 500.
The latest records extended a comeback in the S&P 500, which has
increased 11 percent since plunging in
mid-October. A strong third-quarter
earnings season, on top of a recent
string of positive U.S. economic data
on housing, jobs and manufacturing,
have helped put investors in a buying
mood.
Investors on Friday cheered news of
an interest rate cut in China and the
possibility that Europes central bank
will step up stimulus efforts in the
region.
What it suggests is that these central banks are prepared to do even more
to stimulate growth, to stimulate
demand, and that always equates to better stock markets, said Quincy
Krosby, a market strategist at
Prudential Financial.
All 10 sectors in the S&P 500 index
rose, with materials stocks climbing

the most. The sector is up 9 percent


this year.
Energy stocks were among the big
gainers, getting a boost from a rebound
in oil prices. Some traders anticipated
that OPEC will decide to cut production
at a conference next week.
Ross Stores led the gains in the S&P
500, adding $6.09, or 7.3 percent, to
$89.30.
All told, the S&P 500 index rose
10.75 points, or 0.5 percent, to
2,063.50. Thats just above the indexs
previous high close a day before at
2,052.75. The S&P 500 is up 11.6 percent this year.
The Dow gained 91.06 points, or 0.5
percent, to 17,810.06. Thats up from
its last record close of 17,719 on
Thursday. The Dow as gained 7.4 percent this year.
The Nasdaq composite added 11.10
points, or 0.2 percent, to 4,712.97.
The index is up 12.8 percent for the
year.
The prospect of central banks outside
the U.S. ramping up their own stimulus
efforts is seen as another positive for
stock investors, particularly with the
Federal Reserve winding down its massive bond-buying program this year.
Central bank intervention is the
No. 1 thing investors worldwide are
looking at right now, said Mike Serio,
regional chief investment officer at

Wells Fargo Private Bank. In the short


run, that looks pretty good for stocks.
On Friday, Chinas central bank lowered the interest rate on its one-year
loans to financial institutions by 0.4
percentage points to 5.6 percent. The
surprise cut came in the wake of recent
figures showing that the countrys
annual growth rate slowed to a fiveyear low of 7.3 percent last quarter.
European Central Bank President
Mario Draghi also caused a stir in markets when he told a conference in
Frankfurt, Germany, that the bank is
willing to step up the pressure and
increase its efforts to stimulate
Europes struggling economy.
If current efforts do not achieve the
desired effect, Draghi said the ECB
could broaden even more the channels
through which we intervene.
For many in the markets, that was a
clear hint that the bank could soon
starting buying government bonds.
Beyond the talk of central bank stimulus, investors had their eye on the latest batch of corporate earnings Friday.
Traders bid up shares in several companies that reported better-thanexpected earnings, including software
maker Splunk and sporting goods
retailer Hibbett Sports. Splunk rose
$1.99, or 3.1 percent, to $66.93.
Hibbett gained $1.82, or 4 percent, to
$47.75.

China, Europe chase growth amid global slowdown


By Joe McDonald
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BEIJING Chinas central bank unexpectedly slashed interest rates on Friday to


re-energize the worlds No. 2 economy,
joining a growing list of major economies
that are trying to encourage growth in the
face of a global slowdown.
The president of the European Central
Bank said Friday he was ready to step up
stimulus for the 18-country eurozone economy, where growth is meager and unemployment is soaring. And Japans government this week delayed a tax increase after
the country slipped back into recession.
Japans central bank late last month
increased its purchases of government

bonds and other assets to try to revive


growth.
News of Chinas actions and the ECBs
hints of further stimulus triggered a surge in
stock markets, particularly in Europe.
Germanys DAX rose 2.6 percent, while the
Dow Jones industrial average rose 0.5 percent to close at a record high. Asian stocks
had closed before the Chinese announcements.
Fridays moves highlighted an increasing divide in the global economy. The
United States is showing signs of steady
growth, prompting the Federal Reserve to
rein in its stimulus efforts.
So far, the U.S. has escaped any drag from
the slowdown overseas. Fed policymakers
said at a meeting last month that the impact

on the U.S. would be quite limited.


Jay Bryson, a global economist at Wells
Fargo Securities, said the U.S. is relatively insulated from overseas developments.
Exports are a smaller source of growth than
in other developed nations and many major
employers, such as health care and education providers, are largely unaffected by
overseas activity.
The slowdown in global growth is
becoming an increasing concern for policymakers. Japan confirmed this week that
it has fallen back into recession and will
delay a tax increase to help consumer
spending.
In Europe, it is not only weak growth but
also the low inflation rate that is worrying
the ECB. Low inflation or an outright drop

Study: CEOs in 10 big mergers to get $430M


By Bernard Condon
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK This years flurry of corporate mergers may not pay off for shareholders in the long run, but one thing is for sure:
The bosses who are selling their companies
will do just fine.
The CEOs whove decided to sell in the 10
biggest U.S. deals this year are set to rake in
an estimated $430 million in golden parachute payments, according to a study done
by pay-tracking firm Equilar at the request
of the Associated Press. Translation: It
would take the typical American household
830 years of work to get what the average
CEO will receive in one fell swoop.

The payoffs are often negotiated when


CEOs are hired. Theyre designed to compensate chief executives for losing their
jobs and years of big pay so they wont
stand in the way of a sale that is good for
shareholders.
But some critics say the packages are so
lavish, they can be an incentive to strike
iffy deals.
Among the grab-bag of goodies in some
packages are selling bonuses, cash for
agreeing not to join a rival, severance, cash
to help pay taxes, and lump-sum compensation for giving up corporate cars and other
corner-office perquisites. The biggest haul
is in the form of stock that the CEOs
arguably could have gotten if they didnt

sell. But they would have had to run their


companies for several more years and, in
many cases, hit certain performance goals.
Numerous studies have shown that many
M&A deals are bad for shareholders of the
combined companies in the long run. Since
the financial crisis six years ago, big companies have mostly resisted the urge to
merge. But not recently. On Monday alone
two deals worth a combined $100 billion
were announced: Halliburtons bid for rival
oilfield services company Baker Hughes and
Actavis offer to Botox-maker Allergan.
So far this year, about $3.2 trillion worth
of deals have been announced globally, the
most since 2007, according to data provider
Dealogic.

Fords new F-150 to get 26 mpg, tops among pickups


By Dee-Ann Durbin
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DEARBORN, Mich. Ford said Friday


that its new aluminum-bodied F-150 pickup will get up to 26 mpg on the highway,
making it the most fuel efficient gas-powered full-size pickup.
Th e Ram t ruck i s t h e curren t l eader
amo n g p i ck up s , g et t i n g up t o 2 5 mp g
o n t h e h i g h way wi t h a g as en g i n e. Th e

s i o n o f t h e F-1 5 0 .
Fuel economy is a key selling point for
the new F-150, which is arriving at dealerships this month. Ford shaved 700 pounds
off the weight of the truck by switching the
body from steel to lightweight aluminum,
a dramatic change for the best-selling
vehicle in the U.S.
Some analysts thought the truck might
even top 30 mpg after Fords multi-billion
dollar investment to develop and produce
it. The final figure met Fords expectations
of a more modest improvement, and represents 13 percent greater fuel economy than

the current F-150.


With gas now averaging $2.84 per gallon, the aluminum F-150 will save the
average buyer only $100 to $200 a year in
fuel costs over competing gasoline models
from General Motors and Chrysler, said
Larry Dominique, president of the ALG auto
forecasting firm.
Doug Scott, Fords truck marketing manager, said the majority of truck customers
arent solely focused on fuel economy. The
new F-150 beats its rivals in both towing
of up to 12,200 pounds and payload
of up to 3,300 pounds.

in prices can weaken an economy further by


encouraging delays in spending and investment. The economy of the 18-country eurozone grew by a scant 0.2 percent in the
third quarter compared with the previous
three months.
As indicators for the eurozone and global
economy disappoint, ECB President Mario
Draghi was firm in his message: We will
do what we must to raise inflation and inflation expectations as fast as possible, he
said in a speech in Frankfurt.
Of major economies, only the U.S. is
considering raising interest rates. The
Federal Reserve only recently ended a massive bond-buying program that helped
reduce market interest rates because the
economy is strengthening.

Aereo files for Chapter
11 bankruptcy protection
NEW YORK Online streaming service
Aereo says that it has filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection, saying an unfavorable ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court was
too difficult to overcome.
The Internet startup which is backed by
Barry Diller made waves earlier this year
by letting people record and stream broadcast
TV online. At the time, it was seen as an alternative to cable, offering a few dozen local
broadcast channels and the Bloomberg TV
financial channel on multiple devices for just
$8 a month.
Netflix , Amazon and Hulu offer full
episodes of popular shows from broadcast
networks ABC, NBC and Fox like The
Colbert Report the next day for free. But
Aereo offered live streaming of those TV
channels.
In June, the Supreme Court ruled that Aereo
operates like a cable TV company. As a result,
the court said the service violates copyright
law unless Aereo pays broadcasters licensing
fees for offering TV station programs to customers tablets, phones and other gadgets.
Three days after the court ruling, Aereo
announced that it was temporarily closing
down its operation.
CEO Chet Kanojia said in a statement
Friday on the companys website that the
Supreme Court decision effectively changed
the laws that had governed Aereos technology, creating regulatory and legal uncertainty.

Terra Nova finds footing in CCS opener


By John Baker
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

SUNNYVALE A week after losing a


heartbreaker, Terra Nova got the electric
shock it needed to bring its season back to
life on Friday night, upsetting top-seeded
Kings Academy 42-28 in the Central Coast
Section Division IV opener.
The eighth-seeded Tigers (5-6), whose
defense collapsed late last week in a loss at
rival Half Moon Bay, never trailed in
Fridays playoff game, and found the stops
it couldnt the previous week as they man-

handled the Knights (9-2).


It was huge to see the defense step up and
play to their capability, Terra Nova quarterback Anthony Gordon said. Theyve
always been capable of that and today in
the playoffs was a great time to show it.
Symbolic of the defensive resurgence was
defensive back Brian Montgomery, who was
in on three sacks of TKA quarterback Dominic
Sabel, including one late in the fourth quarter
that set up a fourth-and-long that the Knights
couldnt convert, giving the Tigers the ball at
the end of the game, and the win.
We were really efficient and went mis-

take-free (on defense), Montgomery said.


We put the defense on our backs and just
held the team up.
Terra Nova went ahead with 7:01 left in
the first quarter on a 20-yard touchdown
pass from Gordon to Anthony Fretty. The
Tigers scored again on the first play of the
second quarter when Gordon lofted a floater
to wide out Jordan Genato, who out-accelerated two defenders and flew 40 yards into the
end zone for his 18th touchdown of the season.
Maurice Washington got Kings Academy
to within a touchdown immediately, taking

the ensuing kickoff back 99 yards for a


score after finding a seam on the right sideline. Terra Nova, however, was not intimidated, as Reggie Auelua scored on a 1-yard
run and Marvin Montoya ran a 70-yard route
on another touchdown pass from Gordon.
The Tigers took a 28-7 lead into halftime.
Its like were on another level right
now, I cant even describe it, Terra Nova
junior slotback Romario Orellana said. We
had a great week of practice. It just shows
that preparation is key.

the next play, the quarterback ran a bootleg


into traffic for a 9-yard gain into the red
zone. Four plays later, on third-and-9, he
ran a bootleg the opposite direction and
refused to stop until he lunged across the
goal line for the score.
All told, Burlingame rushed 206 yards on
the game to Aragons 41 yards rushing.
Panthers star running back Griffin Intrieri
wasnt nearly the menace hes capable of

OAKLAND After a rare four-day layoff


between games, Golden State Warriors
coach Steve Kerr admitted he had a few concerns coming into Friday nights game
against the Utah Jazz.
Just like theyve done most of the season,
the Warriors quickly put Kerr at ease.
Andre Iguodala scored 17 points, Harrison
Barnes had 14 points and 11 rebounds and
the Golden State Warriors used a blistering
start to beat the Utah Jazz 101-88 for their
fourth straight win.
The encouraging thing tonight was it
showed to our guys that if we just defend and
take care of the ball we can win a lot of
games even if we dont shoot well, Kerr
said. Thats the mark of a good team.
The well-rested Warriors shook off any
rust with a smothering defensive effort.
They led 28-13 at the end of the first quarter,
54-32 at the half and 85-57 entering the
fourth.
Golden State (9-2) is off to its best start in
41 years.
Nothing came easy for them in the first
half, Warriors center Andrew Bogut said. It
was one of our best defensive games, or
halves, of the season.
Enes Kanter scored 18 points, and Gordon
Hayward had 12 points and five rebounds for
a young Jazz team thats struggling against
top competition. Utah (5-8) hasnt beaten a
team that currently has a winning record.
We got punched and we werent ready to
take that punch, Jazz coach Quin Snyder
said.
In what has been a scintillating month
under Kerr, the Warriors entered the game
leading the NBA shooting 49.9 percent
from the field and holding opponents to a
league-low 41.4 percent from the floor. But
they also topped the league with 19. 3
turnovers per game as they adjusted to the
rookie coachs ball-movement based
offense.
The Warriors put on a dazzling display

Avery Gindraux dives for a second-quarter touchdown in Burlingames 21-7 win over Aragon in the CCS Division III opener.

CCS opener all Panthers


By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

It was Avery Gindrauxs tools as a quarterback that got the ball rolling for the
Panthers Friday night, but it was the
seniors guts that carried them to victory.
No. 3-seed Burlingame (10-1) earned a
convincing 21-7 win over No. 6 Aragon (92) in the Central Coast Section Division III
opener at Umland Field. And while Gindraux
accounted for all three Burlingame scores,
he got his team all the points it would need
in the first half.
The senior quarterback was 10-of-15
passing for 250 yards, throwing for two
touchdowns. He ran for another while totaling 37 yards on five carries. And it was his

all-out efforts during a second-quarter drive


that defined the game.
He was excellent, Burlingame head
coach John Philipopoulos said. The maturity and the growth Avery has shown
every single week. Hes done a tremendous
job throwing the ball, running the ball
being a leader, being the voice of reason
and calm in the huddle. Hes just been a great
leader for us.
For all of Gindrauxs calm, it certainly had
an explosive effect on the field. And with
Burlingame leading 7-0, the refined senior
let lose to do what he likes to do best run
the football.
Facing a fourth-and-5 from the Aragon
34-yard line, Gindraux found Duran Andrade
on a 7-yard screen pass for a first down. On

Sparano savors first win with Raiders


By Josh Dubow
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ALAMEDA Tony Sparano gathered the


Oakland Raiders in a victorious locker room
and praised them for sticking together
through a 16-game losing streak.
Left tackle Donald Penn then presented
Oaklands interim coach with a game ball
that was well earned. Since taking over from
the fired Dennis Allen after four games,
Sparano has made the Raiders much more
competitive despite their lack of success.
On Thursday night, he fulfilled a promise
he made the day he took over to put smiles
on his players faces with a win as Oakland
snapped its yearlong skid by beating the
first-place Kansas City Chiefs 24-20.
Sparano said this game ball was the most
meaningful he has ever gotten.
I say that because of what this team has
been through and how far weve had to
come; and how much the guys have stayed
together in that locker room, he said
Friday. I really appreciate it last night, it
was nice. But really, theyre the ones that
deserve the game balls.

Sparano had not been


part of a winning effort
as a head coach since his
Miami Dolphins beat the
Raiders 34-14 on Dec. 4,
2011. Sparano was fired
after losing the next
game and didnt get his
next chance as head
coach until this season.
Tony
Sparano made small
Sparano
changes like burying a
football to symbolize putting the 0-4 start
in the past and moving some players around
in the locker room. But his biggest impact
was keeping the players together and playing hard through the long losing streak.
Oakland was within one score in the
fourth quarter in five of Sparanos first six
games before finally breaking through for
the win against the Chiefs.
Hes one of the bright spots out of this
season, Penn said. Even though our record
doesnt show it, everybody has to see that
since hes taken over, weve gotten better
and better.

The Raiders then found themselves trailing in the fourth quarter but rallied with a

Carrs 9-yard TD pass to James Jones with

Oakland then got one last stop following
a near colossal mistake when linebackers

sack with an elaborate dance and handshake
in the Kansas City backfield while the

MINNEAPOLIS Adrian Petersons hearing for the appeal of his suspension will be
held on Dec. 2. And it will not be in front of
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
The NFL announced Friday that longtime
hearing officer Harold Henderson will preside over the proceedings involving the
Minnesota Vikings star running back.
Goodell has the authority to decide whether
to hear the appeal himself or appoint someone else.
Peterson has not played since the opening week of the season while dealing with
child abuse allegations in Texas. He was
placed on paid leave while the legal process
played out, and he pleaded no contest on
Nov. 4 to misdemeanor reckless assault for
injuring his 4-year-old son with a wooden
switch.
Goodell suspended Peterson earlier this
week for the rest of the season and told
Peterson that he will not be considered for
reinstatement before April 15 for his violation of the NFLs personal conduct policy.
Peterson is appealing the punishment,
which the NFL Players Association called
unprecedented, arbitrary, and unlawful.
The union had been seeking a neutral arbitrator to oversee the appeal, saying the
league is making up the process and punishment as it goes.
Henderson worked for the league as chairman of its powerful Management Councils
executive committee for 16 years. He also
was a league vice president of labor relations.

I dont chuckle over it, no, no, no,


Sparano said. I dont chuckle over it. I can

today, so I dont chuckle over it.
Oakland ran the ball nine times on that
drive, with fullback Marcel Reece powering
his way to 34 yards on seven carries and
Carr converting first downs on two QB
sneaks.
The Raiders finished with a season-high
179 yards on the ground, including 112 on

runs of 11 and 90 yards before leaving with
a concussion. He figures to get more playing time once he is fully recovered.

Morabe centerpiece of NDBs stellar offense


By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Kills are cool on the volleyball court,


plain and simple.
There has been plenty of cool to go
around at Notre Dame Belmont this season.
Sophomore outside hitter Katie Smoot
ranked second in the West Catholic Athletic
League in kills and hitting percentage as the
superstar spiker on a Tigers team playing
for the Central Coast Section Division IV
championship against Harker Saturday at
Independence High School.
Since setter Lisa Morabe joined the Tigers
midseason, however, the kill shots have
flourished from a number of Notre Dame hitters. Outside hitter Tammy Byrne and opposite hitter Maggie McDonald surged into the
limelight at the outset of league play, while
Morabe quietly amassed 765 assists to lead
the WCAL.
Shes your complete player, Tigers head
coach Jen Agresti said. In volleyball,
sometimes your setters dont get the credit
as some of the big hitters. But she has
everything to do with the success of her
offense.
A transfer from Hillsdale, Morabe had to
sit out the first half of the season. She hit
the ground running in the first match of her
Notre Dame career on Oct. 6 though, totaling 46 assists in a nonleague sweep of
Woodside. Then against St. Ignatius on Oct.
9, the senior had a career day with 63 assists
in a dramatic five-set win.
The win over St. Ignatius saw the emer-

gence of Byrne, who fired a season-high 22
kills. Byrne was one of three players to
score double-digit kills in the match

though, along with Smoots 13 and Jessica


Beerings 10. The distribution would
become a keystone of the Tigers offense
going forward.
Shes able to run a very complex
offense, Agresti said. And with being able
to run a complex offense, we do have
younger hitters, but Tammy and Katie have
been able to adjust to the offense we run.
Morabe has solidified the 5-1 offense
after running the 6-2 just a season ago. With
Notre Dame advancing to the CCS Division
IV quarterfinals before being eliminated by
eventual Northern California champion
Menlo, Agresti was optimistic setter
Sophia Murillo could anchor the Tigers after
the departure of standout senior Lauren
Hom.
Murillo, however, moved to Texas. So,
Agresti turned to sophomore Kristine Gese,
who led Notre Dame to 11 straight wins to
start the season. The experience of the senior Morabe a year-round player on the
club circuit was simply too good to pass
up.
Notre Dames gain was Hillsdales loss
though. Hillsdale head coach Dwight Crump
was looking to build on last years CCS
Division III appearance, with Morabe being
the centerpiece of the game plan.
Instead, the Knights had a disappointing
season at 7-21 overall and 3-11 in league,
doing just enough to maintain their standing in the Peninsula Athletic League Bay
Division with a sixth-place finish out of
eight teams.
I was expecting her, this year, to be the

person to take us to the same place Notre


Dame is at now, Crump said.
The loss of Morabe marked an end to a
long career playing for Crump, which began
during Morabes fourth-grade year at St.
Gregorys Elementary School. On a team
which also featured McDonald, St.
Gregorys went undefeated for three straight
years, without losing even one set, according to Crump.
[Morabe] is a girl that as a setter, no matter what team she goes to play for, shes
going to make that team better, Crump
said.
Notre Dames postseason run appears to
be the end of the road for Morabes volleyball career, however. With the senior looking to attend the best academic school she
can to pursue a career as a pediatrician, she
is retiring from the competitive volleyball
circuit following Notre Dames season,
even though she did have some offers to
play at the Division III college level.
Its an emotional thing for her so she
doesnt want the season to end until its time
for the season to end, Agresti said.
With Saturdays championship match taking center stage and the Northern California
tournament beginning Tuesday, Oct. 25,
Morabes sights are focused on the task at
hand.
Were extremely excited, Morabe said.
We have been waiting for so long for this,
our school has been waiting for this, we just
want to go out and win it for [everybody].

NEW YORK Stanford had one of those

The game was basically over in the first
11 minutes as the Cardinal jumped to a 3610 lead with 9:16 to play after Randle hit
his third and fourth 3-pointers. The seniors
six 3-pointers were one shy of his career
high.
Stanford: The Cardinal came into the
game having made 5 of 21 from long range,
or less than 24 percent, in its first two

games. It finished 14 of 20, or 70 percent. It


shot only 50 percent (31-of-62) from the
field.
UNLV: The Runnin Rebels had held their
opposition to less than 31 percent shooting from the field in their first two games,
and 27.6 percent from long range, on 16 of
58 shooting. The defense was missing
against Stanford.
BALANCE: Stanford has had four players
in double figures in all three games. Center
Stefan Nastic was the other with 10 points
on 3 of 13 shooting, dragging the team
average down.
NO CROWD: The opening game was one
of those friends and family crowds. Lot of

Mike Schmidt: Marlins Stanton too rich too early?


By Mike Schmidt
FOR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

In the 1970s and again in 80s, I signed


that eras version of the Giancarlo Stanton
deal.
I was considered the Giancarlo Stanton of
those times. I had led the league in home
runs and RBIs a few times, so the Phillies
decided I was worthy of becoming the highest-paid player in baseball.
Ruly Carpenter, then owner of the
Phillies, sat in front of me in spring training and told me about the responsibility
that went along with my acceptance of
$550,000 a year for five years. I said I
understood. He had to trust my response and
use his judgment as to my character and
ability to fulfill this both off, and more
importantly, on the field.
Remember, I was a college graduate, 26
years old, married and a pretty good hitter.
That was my ticket, as free agency had just
been granted to players, and owners were in
the first stages of fearing the loss of star players. That deal worked out great for both sides.
After we won the 1980 World Series and I
was the MVP, I really got the miniStanton deal. Highest salary ever, six years.
Funny though, the entire deal was worth
one-third of what Stanton will make a year.
You bet there was a responsibility clause or
two in that contract.
Whether its $2 million or $30 million a
year, it causes several changes in ones life,
both private and public. Everywhere
Stanton goes, he will be looked at as the
guy with $325 million. Especially in his
own clubhouse, which brings greater performance expectations.
Sure, the Marlins will sell it differently,
saying its the beginning of a new era, hes

theyre fighters, Philipopoulos said.
Something tells me hell be out there next
Friday.
Despite the discrepancy of rushing yards,
Aragon head coach Steve Sell said he was
pleased with his defenses job against the run.
Our defense kept us in the game, Sell
said. Specifically, our run defense, they were
stout. [Burlingame] beat us with some big
plays and their quarterback was terrific.
The biggest play of the night came on
Burlingames third offensive play of the
game. Gindraux hit Intrieri on a curl route,
and the speedy back hustled through a slew of

the face of the franchise, his teammates are


excited for him, all good.
Now hell get to experience batting
slumps as the highest-paid player, a totally
different feeling. Hell be at home plate
with the bases loaded and strike out to a chorus of boos. Hell miss a ball in right field
and want to crawl in a hole because of what
he hears. Work as hard as you want behind
the scenes, it doesnt matter, now you are
expected not to fail.
Off the field, he will have choices to
make. Undesirable people will find him and
want a piece of his financial future. He will
be able to buy anything and everything
planes, yachts and expensive automobiles.
He will need financial advisers and personal
assistants, leading to the usual entourage.
Gratuities will be expected to double. Cell
phones will follow him everywhere.
Facebook and Twitter will chronicle his
every public minute. ESPN and the MLB
Network will feature his performance, good
and bad nightly.
For someone who likes to stay under the
radar, the question becomes: Is it worth it?
The answer, of course, is hell, yes!
This contract will carry a major burden
along with it, and if history is any indication, these deals make little sense.
Wed all like to believe Jeffrey Loria
thought this through thoroughly. But after
being out of the news, maybe the Marlins
owner figured it was time to buy another
show pony.
He got Miami to give him a stadium deal.
He signed and made promises to Jose Reyes,
Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle about
building a winner and then traded them. He
hired Ozzie Guillen to link the team to the
Latino population in Miami, and that move
became a bust as well.

Does Loria really believe Giancarlo


Stanton will be a Marlin for the next 13
years?
If a player in todays game can command
the highest free agent-influenced salary in
history, it is Stanton. He is big, strong,
fast, a five-tool player and 25 years old.
Hes Jose Canseco minus PEDs, plus great
defense. Hes not showy, or hung up on
himself. In fact, he comes off as a bit shy
and reserved, with no sense of entitlement.
Very unusual in this generation.
He has the potential to be the best player
in the league for many years, a run he started in 2014, but can he stay healthy and hungry, and can the Marlins surround him with
winning talent?
Stanton has had three reasonably good
seasons in his first five years, by todays
standards. Hit 30-plus home runs three times
and drove in 100 once. This past year was
great timing, as he was far and away the best
offensive player in the National League.
To me, nobody was more valuable to an
NL team in 2014 than Stanton, by a long
shot.
Clayton Kershaw is the best pitcher baseball right now. Numbers dont lie. But there
is no way a starting pitcher can be the Most
Valuable Player of his league.
Had the Marlins made the postseason, we
wouldnt even be having this discussion.
Its not possible for any player in the
National League to be more valuable than
Stanton.
He plays every day. I repeat, he plays
every day, not every fifth day. But enough of
that debate for now.
Stanton has tremendous potential, as we
all know, but would a more conservative
approach by Loria have been a more prudent
avenue? Had Stanton delivered another

MVP-caliber year in 2015, no one would


have questioned making him rich.
Stanton is coming off a nightmare injury
for a hitter, being hit in the face. He has
been injury-prone over his career, and will
be a bigger center of attention for opposing
pitchers. If I were an owner and had $325
million to spend on one player, Id want to
be sure he had what it takes to be MVP every
year, which means unusual talent, desire,
and durability.
Backing up a great year with another great
one would convince me. Id have waited till
the end of 2015. After all, for $30 million a
year shouldnt you be MVP a few times at
least?
For those who look at this and say ridiculous, no athlete is worth $325 million,
understand the guy who realizes that the
most is Stanton. Hes just a gifted young
athlete doing what he does at the right time
in history. Same as me back in the day.
People want to lay blame somewhere for
these things. Look in the mirror, fans. You
pay these salaries by watching TV, buying
jerseys, buying the products advertised by
the teams, using social media, parking at
stadiums and attending games where you
eat, drink and buy memorabilia.
Jeffrey Loria may not be the most popular
guy in Miami, but he knows where this
$325 million is coming from, and its not
his savings account. Its from yours.
So Miami fans, eat drink and be merry and
enjoy Giancarlo Stanton for 13 years. You
are paying for it.

Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt in 1977
became the first player to make more than
$500,000 for a season. In December 1981,
he signed a six-year deal that was worth a
total of nearly $12 million.

Aragon tacklers for a 77-yard gain to the


Aragon 1-yard line.
But the Dons turned the momentum early
by stuffing Burlingames attempts with an
impressive goal-line stand. Dons linebacker
J.P. Gonzales was in on two big stops. He
and linebacker Charles Cao paired to stop
Andrade for no gain on first down. When
Gindraux attempted a quarterback sneak on
second down, he was met by defensive tackles Yahya Bolak and Nick Hom for no gain.
After a 5-yard illegal-procedure penalty on
Burlingame, Gonzales made certain the distance held up by drilling Intrieri off tackle for
a mere 2-yard gain. Then Burlingame missed
a 25-yard field goal to give Aragon a surge of
momentum as the defense came off the field.
We had a lot of energy, Gonzales said.
We felt like we got back in it. We had a big
loss (on that pass play) but we stopped them.

We felt really good off that.


Burlingame wouldnt squander its next
chance though. Starting from their own 34yard line, the Panthers produced a 42-yard
Intrieri run to the Aragon 21-yard line. On
the following play, Gindraux connected with
Intrieri over the middle for a 21-yard touchdown, giving the Panthers the lead.
In the second half, Burlingame opened
with a five-play scoring drive capped by a
26-yard touchdown pass from Gindraux to
Intrieri on blown coverage by the Aragon
secondary.
There was some miscommunication and
there was some missed assignments, Sell
said. Theyve been solid all year, so that
was very uncharacteristic of them. Theyre
probably one of the best secondaries weve
ever had at this school. There was some
missed communications, but Burlingame,

their quarterback didnt miss. We made mistakes. But they took advantage of it.
The Burlingame defense did the rest.
Aragons offense was hindered by the
absence of receiver Ty Stokman who was lost
for the year due to injury late in the regular
season. Running back Bubba Tongamoa was
also not at full strength, according to Sell.
The Panthers defense capitalized by sacking Aragon quarterback Billy Mason three
times in the second half, two of which were
made by linebacker Chi Le Tang.
Aragon did manage to get on the board on its
final possession of the game with a 15-yard
touchdown pass from Mason to Devin Grant.
With the win, Burlingame advances to the
semifinals to meet No. 2 Aptos, the 2013
CCS Division III champs. Aptos (10-1)
advanced with a 50-3 win over previously
undefeated No. 7 Branham.

Ciganda, Granada tied for lead at LPGA finale

NAPLES, Fla. Michelle Wie suddenly is


in a position to consider a million ways how
a great year can get even better.
On a tough day that only rewarded the best
shots, Wie holed out for eagle with a pitching wedge on her way to a 5-under 67 that
moved her up high enough on the leaderboard Friday at the CME Group Tour
Championship to get into position for a $1
million bonus.
Carlota Ciganda of Spain took advantage
of a putting lesson from Spanish great Jose
Maria Olazabal to make five birdies for a 67
that gave her a share of the lead with Julieta
Granada of Paraguay, who scrambled for a
71. They were at 7-under 137 going into the
weekend at the Tiburon Golf Club.
Morgan Pressel, who rallied on the back
nine Thursday to overcome a rugged start,
shot a 66 and was one shot out of the lead.
All of them would love to win the LPGA
Tour season finale because its a big title
with a $500,000 check for first place. None
has a mathematical chance at the $1 million
bonus for winning the points-based Race to
CME Globe.
And thats where Wie comes in.
Wie, who captured her first major this year

at Pinehurst No. 2 in the


U.S. Womens Open, is
No. 4 in the Race to CME

players Stacy Lewis,
Inbee Park and 17-yearold Lydia Ko can win

simply by winning the

of the heavy lifting.
Even though she made bogey on the par-5
opening hole that irritated her, the 25-yearold from Hawaii bounced back with her eagle
on No. 7, birdies on the par 5s and a score
that put her only two shots out of the lead.
All I want is an opportunity, a chance,
Wie said. Im really proud of myself for giving myself that today. I just want to go out
there tomorrow and put myself in a great position for Sunday. Thats all I want, and thats all
Im asking for. Whatever happens, happens.
She did get some help from the top three.
Lewis, who opened with a 69 and was only

distance control in the blustery conditions

Dodgers acquire Peralta from Rays


LOS ANGELES Reliever Joel Peralta
was acquired by the Los Angeles Dodgers
from the Tampa Bay Rays as part of a fourplayer trade.
The deal is the first major move for Los
Angeles since Andrew Friedman left the
Rays to become president of baseball operations for the Dodgers.
Tampa Bay received right-handers Jose
Dominguez and Greg Harris in the trade
announced Thursday night, and the Dodgers
also obtained left-hander Adam Liberatore.
Peralta, a 38-year-old right-hander, was 34 with a 4.41 ERA and one save in 69 games
last season, when he struck out 74 in 63 1-3
innings. A 10-year major league veteran, he
spent the last four seasons with the Rays
after pitching for the Los Angeles Angels,
Kansas City, Colorado and Washington.
He joins a bullpen where Brian Wilson was
the primary setup man for closer Kenley
Jansen.
Joels significance to the Rays transcended his on-field performance. He was a
clubhouse leader who always sought ways to
make the organization better, said Matt
Silverman, who succeeded Friedman as the

Rays president of baseball operations.


Tampa Bay had exercised Peraltas $2.5
million option for next season. The Dodgers
inherit options for the same amount for
2016 and 2017.
The 24-year-old Dominguez made nine
appearances for the Dodgers in 2013 and
five this year. He also was 1-2 with a
3 . 2 4 ERA an d 1 0 s av es at Tri p l e-A
Albuquerque. Harris, 20, was 7-6 with a
4. 45 ERA in 16 starts and six relief
appearances at Cl as s -A Great Lak es .
Liberatore, 27, was 6-1 with a 1. 66 ERA
in 54 games at Triple-A Durham.
In other roster moves, Tampa Bay designated for assignment infielder Cole
Figueroa, right-hander Michael Kohn and
catcher Jose Molina.

71 and was five shots
behind.
Six back is not a horrible position, Lewis
said. I dont think anybody is running away
with this thing. I think
its going to end up
being pretty bunched up
Carlota
at the end and probably a
Ciganda
playoff on Sunday. Im
right where I need to be. Im trying not to
think about player of the year and all that
stuff. Its up there, but trying not to think
about it.
Lewis can sweep all the significant awards
at this LPGA Tour finale provided she finishes ahead of Park, and so far she is three shots
ahead. Not to be forgotten is that $1 million
packaged in $100 in a glass case that they
posed with on the eve of the tournament.
Along with prize money, the winner of the
Race to CME Globe will receive the largest
single-day payoff in the history of womens
golf.
The first step is to try to catch the leaders.
Ciganda was home in Spain last week
when she called Olazabal and asked him for a
lesson.
We stay there like three hours on the putting green, just hitting putts, Ciganda said.

He told me a few things and it seems like its


working, so Im pretty happy. I have to thank
him. Then we played last Friday before coming here, so it was really nice to play. Hes so
passionate about golf. It just his life.
And how did that match turn out? Ciganda
teamed with a Challenge Tour player in
Europe, their best ball against Olazabal.
We won on the last hole, she said. But
it was tough.
Pressel was 3 over through 10 holes in the
opening round when she battled back for a
72. She was headed for another slow start
Friday until knocking in a 15-foot par putt
on the third hole, and then she was on her
way to the best round of the day.
Granada spent most her time swapping
birdies with bogeys, though she stayed atop
the leaderboard.
Sarah Jane Smith (69) and Sandra Gal (71)
joined Wie at 5-under 139, while So Yeon
Ryu had another 70 and was three shots out
of the lead. Ryu is at No. 5 in the Race to
CME Globe and is on the fringe on contending for the big bonus.
The weekend is important for Wie to keep
moving forward, and for Lewis, Park and Ko
to start making up ground.
You can make up a lot of ground quickly,
Granada said. But your game has to be on.
The toughness of the course will show it.

Sex assault case reinstated


against pitcher Evan Reed

Kenneth King heard evidence.


Callahan said his job was to decide
whether King abused his discretion in dismissing the case, not whether Reed was
guilty or innocent.
Assistant prosecutor Ana Quiroz went over
the evidence for Callahan, saying hotel surveillance video shows the woman was so
incapacitated that she was barely conscious.
Defense attorney Ben Gonek said the
womans version of events didnt add up.
She claimed to be ill the next morning, he
said, yet walked down six flights of stairs in
high heels and passed a police car without
seeking help.
Reed, who wasnt in court, insists he had
consensual sex with the 45-year-old woman.
He is a free agent after playing for the Tigers
and Triple-A Toledo last season.
We fully cooperated with the investigation. He was interrogated for several hours,
Gonek said outside of court.

DETROIT A judge reinstated a sexual


assault case against pitcher Evan Reed on
Friday, overturning a decision by another
judge who found inconsistencies in the
alleged victims story.
Reed is charged with third-degree criminal
sexual conduct. He was playing for the
Detroit Tigers last spring when a woman
says she was drugged at a bar before Reed
took her to a Detroit casino hotel on the eve
of Opening Day.
Wayne County Circuit Judge Michael
Callahan reinstated the case after hearing an
appeal from prosecutors.
It means Reed, 28, will go to trial unless a
higher court intervenes. The case was dismissed in 36th District Court, the first stop
for all felonies, in August after Judge

against the Jazz, showing off a
suffocating defense and a spaceand-pace scheme while minimizing mistakes on both ends.
Golden State outshot the Jazz 50
percent to 42.7 percent. The
Warriors also had just 13 turnovers
most with the outcome already
decided while Utah committed 20.
The Warriors scored the first 12
points and often made the game
look like a practice session, turning
defense into easy transition baskets
and numerous highlights.
The most captivating play came in

TIGERS
Continued from page 11
Gordon, who completed 24 of 37
passes for 412 yards surpassing
the 4,000-yard plateau on the season also threw another scoring
strike to Genato (six yards) and
one to Eric Viana (for 11 yards),
both in the third quarter. The
Knights got a 65-yard zig-zag
scoring run from Washington in
the third quarter and touchdowns
from Jamey Wilson and Derek
Friske in the fourth quarter, but the
damage had been done.
The kids worked hard during the
week, all the credit in the world to
them, first-year Terra Nova head
coach Tim Adams said. We knew
we were going to be in a battle and
they didnt give up the whole

the second quarter when Bogut gave a


behind-the-back, dribble handoff to
Stephen Curry near the top of the arc.
Dribbling to his left, Curry floated a
left-handed lob back to Bogut that
the 7-footer finished with a righthanded slam, bringing the announced
sellout crowd of 19,596 to its feet.
It worked out nicely, Bogut said.
Utah took more than four minutes
to score its first basket, struggled to
defend Golden States streaky shooters and had trouble moving the ball
on offense.
The Warriors, meanwhile, got big
contributions from all over, including Klay Thompson (14 points),
Marreese Speights (14 points),
Bogut (12 points, four rebounds)
and Draymond Green (11 points,
nine rebounds, five assists).
game.
Washington led all rushers with
seven rushes for 91 yards, while
Auelua led Terra Nova with 83
yards on 22 carries. Montoya led
the Tigers receiving corps with
140 yards on six catches. Viana
had 10 receptions for 133 yards
and Genato caught seven passes
for 124 yards.
The win sets up a potentially
intriguing rematch. If fifth-seeded
Half Moon Bay, which beat Terra
Nova 49-48 last week with a lastsecond score, can get past Carmel
Saturday, the two rivals will meet
for the second time in three weeks.
Gordon said he doesnt see Terra
Nova doing much differently.
I think we should attack them
the same way (as in the previous
game), Gordon said. If the
defense steps up and stops the run,
the offense keeps the same plan
weve had the last couple weeks.

Greener grass
By Dominic Gialdini

othing is ever good enough, especially for those who wish to be


the best.
Whether its as common as having a stellar GPA but reluctantly settling for the
position of salutatorian or as extreme as
possessing billions of dollars but seeing
oneself as inadequate because one falls just
short of gaining a status superior to that of
Bill Gates, people are prone to measure
themselves by their shortfalls rather than
by their successes.
Perhaps it is an evolutionary mechanism
etched into the human
persona and intended to
make individuals perform to the best of their
abilities, or maybe it is
just an acquired personality trait; regardless, it
seems that, in the eyes of the extremely
ambitious, there is always someone better
off, something that can be improved upon,
some way to make oneself more satisfied.
The proverbial grass will always be
greener on the other side of the fence, no
matter the time invested or the effort exerted.
As if this werent bad enough, quite often
people with such a mentality unwittingly
wish their lives away. Daily tasks become
hurdles in the strenuous journey that ultimately leads to a far-off goal that may
never actually materialize.
Whether one is a high school student
who cant wait to go off to college, a college student who yearns to jump into the
workforce or a near-retiree restless to take
advantage of the golden years, there is usually something to look forward to. Once
people get there, they are quick to find
another milestone that can distract them
from the once appealing and now unsatisfactory position that they are in. This
never-ending cycle of desire and achievement without a sense of fulfillment seems
to be the norm of modern society.
While this is not necessarily a horrible
thing, it has the potential to prevent people from appreciating the present. When
concentrating the totality of ones inter-

Breakfast with

By Judy Richter
DAILY JOURNAL CORRESPONDENT

In real life, Robert Mugabe is the 90-yearold controversial leader of the African
nation of Zimbabwe.
In Fraser Graces fictional Breakfast
With Mugabe, its 2001, and the 77-yearold president has asked to see a white psychiatrist in hopes of ridding himself of the
ghost of a rival.
Carefully directed by Jon Tracy in its West
Coast premiere, this Aurora Theatre
Company production features two esteemed
Bay Area actors. L. Peter Callender plays
Mugabe, and Dan Hiatt is the psychiatrist,
Dr. Andrew Peric.
Before the two meet, Andrew confronts
the possibly dangerous presidential body-

guard, Gabriel (Adrian Roberts), and the elegant Grace Mugabe (Leontyne MbeleMbong), who is 40 years younger than her
husband.
When Robert and Andrew finally meet, it
becomes clear that despite Andrews best
efforts to keep things on a professional
level, Robert wants to do things his way.
Add Grace and Gabriel to the mix, and what
you have is a four-way power struggle amid
a heavy dose of Zimbabwes troubled history.
As the play progresses, its revealed that
Andrew owns and has deep feelings for a
tobacco farm that has been in his family for
at least two prior generations. It has been
taken over by Zimbabwe war veterans who

Far Cry 4 climbs to wild heights


By Derrik J. Lang
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

At a time when it seems like many


first-person shooter creators have run
out of ideas, the keepers of the Far
Cry franchise have cleverly added elephants that can be employed as
makeshift tanks in the latest installment of the freewheeling, out-of-control action series. Its just one of many
inventive flourishes that players will
stumble across in the chaotically fun
Far Cry 4.
The series once again starts with
players in the shoes of an outsider.
This time, its Ajay Ghale, an
American who has ventured to his parents homeland for the first time to
deliver his mothers ashes. While
there, he becomes entangled in the
countrys long-simmering civil war
between a rag-tag rebellion called the
Golden Path and tyrannical leader
Pagan Min.
Far Cry 4 (Ubisoft, for the
PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox
360, Xbox One, PC, $59.99) trades
the breezy African and South Pacific
locales of previous installments for a
fictional land located amid the
Himalayas called Kyrat. Its a violent
and vivid place where forests, wildlife,
temples, lakes, caves, mountains and
humanity swirl together like watercolors.
The developers have wisely opted to
keep the liberating open-ended gameplay from Far Cry 3 wholly
unchanged. Whether players have a
hankering to hijack enemy outposts,
hunt treasures, disarm bombs, race
cars, free hostages, fight propaganda,
skin critters or embark on hallucinogenic journeys, the choice is ultimately theirs to make and there are a lot

Unlike the previous Far Cry outing, players must transverse towering
peaks instead of sweeping islands.
Thankfully, a few new modes of transportation have been introduced,
including a sputtering gyrocopter and
a handy-dandy grappling hook, which
gives Ghale the ability to ascend or
descend mountains at certain rocky
junctures spread across Kyrat.
The nations landscape is unfortunately more interesting than its population. The over-the-top Min (portrayed by omnipresent video game
voice actor Troy Baker) serves more as

maniacal background music rather than


the star headliner he was promised to
be, while Ghale himself (voiced by
James A. Woods) is shamefully never
developed as the games leading man.
Luckily, the serviceable but unsatisfying plot doesnt detract from the
overall experience. A few multiplayer
modes, notably the chance to play
cooperatively online, keeps Far Cry
4 fresh after the credits roll.
Hopefully, plowing through Kyrat
with a pal is only a tease of what might
await in Far Cry 5. Also, fingers
crossed, kangaroos. Three-and-a-half
stars out of four.

Epic Dragon Age blazes new trails


By Lou Kesten
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Take The Lord of the Rings, Game


of Thrones, The Wheel of Time and
pretty much every other epic fantasy
of the last century. Throw in a shelf full
of Dungeons & Dragons manuals and
a library of classic role-playing games
dating back to 1981s Wizardry and
Ultima. Mix vigorously, and you
have some idea of what to expect from
Dragon Age: Inquisition (Electronic
Arts, for the Xbox One, Playstation 4,
Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC,
$59.95).
The latest RPG from BioWare, the
Canadian developer known for such
landmarks as Baldurs Gate, Star
Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
and Mass Effect, is a sprawling creation that builds on all those successes. It has vistas of eye-popping
grandeur but allows for quiet moments
between characters. It lets you compete in fast-paced battles or idly pick
out drapes for your castle. It offers a
cosmic good-vs. -evil apocalypse
along with more mundane struggles
between its flawed, mortal heroes.

Dragon Age: Inquisition from BioWare, the Canadian developer known for such
landmarks as Baldurs Gate,Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Mass Effect,
is a sprawling creation that builds on all those successes.
The main protagonist, who becomes
known as the Inquisitor, can be male or
female, one of four races (human, elf,
dwarf or the bull-like qunari), and one
of three classes (mage, warrior or
ranger). The continent of Thedas has
been beset by rifts that allow demons
to enter from another dimension; the
Inquisitor alone has the mysterious
power to close them. Whats behind
the rifts? The answer comes about 30
hours in at which point
Inquisition is only about one-third
of the way done.
The Inquisitor cant save the world
alone, and a huge part of the games
appeal is in its supporting cast. My

favorites were the rakish mage Dorian


and the haunted assassin Cole, but
each of your cohorts has such a distinct
personality that youll want to spend
time getting to know all of them. You
can take three of them on each mission, and its fascinating to watch
them interact.
They usually fend for themselves in
combat, though you can pause the
action to give them orders. Once your
characters build up some skills, the
battles are usually over in short order
but defeating one of those thickskinned dragons requires the ability to
switch quickly among your four fighters.

ture, being the best is nearly impossible only one person in the world
is the best at any given activity.
Being unsatisfied by the present
because of an anxiousness to move
on to bigger and better things is just
as detrimental.
Instead of approaching the subject
pessimistically, it would do one good
to look at not being superior to all
others as an opportunity for growth.
As a very wise (and unknown individual) once said, If youre the
smartest person in the room, youre
in the wrong room.
While ambition is admirable, there
is something to be said not only of
humility, but also the opportunity
that arises when people go out of
their way to find others who are bet-

ter than them at a certain skill.


Instead of feeling resentment, they
should relish the chance to learn from
and improve with the assistance of
others. This also helps to avoid
becoming infatuated with the future
and waiting it out, which would only
waste time that could have been put
to good use.
Sure, the grass is always greener on

Most of the action takes place in the

Running about 100 minutes with no

slow spots because of the background
presented in a dialect thats not always

Cosby shows canceled


as women allege rape
By Matt Sedensky
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MELBOURNE, Fla. Performances by Bill Cosby in


Nevada, Illinois, Arizona, South Carolina and Washington
State have been canceled as more women come forward
accusing the entertainer of sexually assaulting them many
years ago.
The director of The Broadway Center in Tacoma,
Washington said Friday that it has canceled Cosbys April
18 appearance because it conflicts with the nonprofit organizations mission to strengthen our communitys social
fabric by building empathy, furthering education and sharing joy.
We were not confident in our ability to meet those objectives by proceeding with Mr. Cosbys performance, David
Fischer said.
Cosbys lawyer has said claims by four women are untrue;
a statement from Cosby on Sunday dismissed most of the
others as decade-old, discredited allegations.
A sold-out Cosby comedy show in Melbourne, Florida,
Friday night went on as planned. The 77-year-old comedian,
wearing cargo pants and a shirt that said Hello Friend,
took the stage to a standing ovation and loud applause. One
person shouted, We love you Bill.
Outside the theater, one protester held a sign that read,
Rape is no joke.
Julie Lemaitre, 47, of Rockledge, Florida, said she was
there just to have a presence and to try to say to people
attending think about what youre doing.
Cosbys producers said at least 29 other shows remain on
his schedule through May 2015.
Other shows were canceled, though. Officials at the
Treasure Island hotel and casino on the Las Vegas strip said
Friday they mutually agreed with the comedian to cancel his
Nov. 28 performance. No reason was given by the Diamond
Desert casino in Tucson, Arizona, for canceling his Feb. 15
show.
Two other appearances, scheduled for April in
Champaign, Illinois, also were called off Friday, as were
February shows in Reno, Nevada, and in Florence, South
Carolina.

Mockingjay stars reflect on growing up together


By Jocelyn Noveck
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Sitting down to interview


Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and
Liam Hemsworth, stars of the blockbuster
Hunger Games franchise, feels a bit like
hanging out with three siblings.
While Hutcherson ponders a question,
Lawrence and Hemsworth are surreptitiously
playing a game of hand-slap, Lawrence
pulling her hand free just in time. When one
of the guys says reflectively, Maybe I was
just an idiot, Lawrence pipes up: Yes, you
ARE an idiot! There are giggles, and a totally inside joke involving the phrase My ears
hurt, spoken in baby voice. (Dont ask.)
I met my best friends in the world on this
movie, Lawrence says, turning serious, of
Hutcherson and Hemsworth. We love each
other. Theyre as close to me as my family,
and in some ways they ARE my family.
Lawrence, who plays Katniss Everdeen for
the third time in The Hunger Games:
Mockingjay: Part 1, which opened Friday,
is known for being a straight shooter and
not just with a bow and arrow. And so when
she talks about her co-stars, it sounds
refreshingly
nothing
like
canned
Hollywood-speak, in which everyone professes how it was SO great working with
everyone else.
Instead, the 24-year-old Oscar winner
explains how she, Hutcherson and
Hemsworth (22 and 24 respectively) grew up
together on set over the past several years
and became famous together, though
Lawrences star has risen the fastest.
We all have the actor thing in common
where we left home very early I left home
when I was 14, Lawrence says. And our
lives changed together in a way that nobody
else in the whole world understands.
In fact, she says, just the night before, the
trio attended a dinner exhausted and sat
for the first half entirely silent, like families
sometimes do. People were thinking, they
must not really like each other, she says.

Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Katniss Everdeen for the third time in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay: Part 1is known for being a straight shooter
and not just with a bow and arrow.
Chuckles Hutcherson: Yeah, theyre thinking its all an act! Adds Hemsworth: Youve
got to be really close to not talk at all.
Promoting the third film in the Suzanne
Collins trilogy filmmakers have split
Mockingjay in two parts has brought
back familiar questions about parallels
between the characters and the actors who
play them. Katniss and Peeta Mellark
(Hutcherson) are both thrust into dizzying
fame in the first Hunger Games when
theyre chosen to represent District 12 in the
fight-to-the-death spectacle forced on them
by the Capitol, ruled by shadowy President

Snow (Donald Sutherland). In the third


movie, along with Gale (Hemsworth), they
each figure in different ways in the rebellion
spreading through the country of Panem.
I always get kind of nervous when people
make parallels, says Lawrence. (Katniss)
led a rebellion that changed the world, and
Im just an actor telling people I need more
lipstick or whatever.
She does, though, understand why people
latch onto the reluctant fame idea, since
she herself initially hesitated before accepting the role that catapulted her to global
fame.
We all had an idea of how big this was
going to be, which is why I took a few days
before I said yes, and really thought about
what I wanted, Lawrence says. Saying yes
to this was going to completely change my
life.
Hutcherson says he was oblivious. I had
to say I didnt expect any of it, he says of
sudden stardom.

Youre not as paranoid and neurotic as


me, Lawrence quips.
Lawrence, who has spoken bluntly and
forcefully about privacy concerns, feels her
co-stars need to be more security-conscious.
I recently changed my number and texted
them, Hi boys, and they answered back
blah blah and didnt even ask a security question! she says, in mock disapproval.
But I knew it was you, protests
Hemsworth. Nobody else would text us, Hi,
boys!
Mockingjay, directed by Francis
Lawrence, brings back most of the starry
supporting cast Woody Harrelson, for
example, as a rehabbed Haymitch
Abernathy; Stanley Tucci as the flamboyant
Caesar Flickerman; and Elizabeth Banks as
the colorful Effie Trinket (with an expanded
role, but alas a much less colorful revolutionary wardrobe). Also returning: Philip
Seymour Hoffman, who died in February, as
Plutarch.

GAMES

to the relentless emotional torture of its


heroine.
Director Francis Lawrence, in his second
outing in the franchise, stays fairly true to
the original text, carrying over the war-torn
bleakness of Catching Fire without any of
the disturbing thrill of the Games. He sprinkles in a handful of fairly exciting action
sequences (one of which was not actually
described in the book), but, he mostly
allows the film to luxuriate in the quiet
moments. Yet too many involve Katniss
tearing up while sitting on piles of rubble.
In its best moments, the movie has a
tense, night before the battle feel. Only the
battle is still a year away.
Ever since the Harry Potter juggernaut
split their final story into two separate
films, its become standard practice in
Hollywood for every successful franchise,
regardless of whether or not the story is
there. Mockingjay - Part 1 is a serviceable
entry into the conclusion of Katnisss saga.
It boasts some imaginative visuals, a few
truly thrilling moments, and standout performances
from Lawrence,
Banks,
Harrelson, and Hoffman, to whom the film
is dedicated.
Still, even with Hoffmans subtly brilliant reaction shots, it does not seem to be
the type of movie that fans will revisit on
its own. This half is part of a whole in the
most cynical way.
You say you want a revolution? Theyll
get to that next year.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part
1, a Lionsgate release, is rated PG-13 by
the Motion Picture Association of America
for intense sequences of violence and
action, some disturbing images and thematic material. Running time: 123 minutes.
Two and a half stars out of four.

property of the people.
This has always been clear to Plutarch
Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman),
who aims to use her as a propaganda
machine. But theres a problem: the girl on
fire has flamed out.
In the chaos that followed the conclusion
of the second film, Peeta (Josh Hutcherson)
was captured by the Capitol, District 12 was
destroyed (though Katniss mother, sister
and the steely jawed Gale (Liam Hemsworth)
escaped alive), and Katniss was taken by the
militaristic District 13. Their President,
Alma Coin, (franchise newcomer Julianne
Moore) needs her to be their poster girl.
Mockingjay - Part 1 is, ultimately, a
slow-burn portrait of the repeated rise and
fall of dystopias most reluctant hero, nimbly told through its examination of the
mechanics of propaganda. With the help of
Plutarch, Haymitch (Woody Harrelson) and
the toned-down (but still delightful) Effie
Trinket (Elizabeth Banks), Katniss attempts
to serve the cause in her own way.
But its not just a matter of convincing her
to forget, or at least shelve, her past traumas. Katnisss confidence and devotion to
the revolt is put to the test when she sees
how the evil President Snow (Donald
Sutherland) is manipulating Peeta and using
him for his own propaganda needs.
In the Games, the goal was simple: Keep
Peeta alive. Now, Katniss is powerless, just
a tool of the machine. Charred and fatally
wounded bodies aside, Mockingjay - Part
1 is not for the faint of heart when it comes

SCHOOL

space at the San Mateo Adult School, located at what is known as the SMART Center
next to San Mateo High School, during the
2015-16 school year. Those who are part of
the adult school, which serves adults wanting to learn English and earn GED degrees,
have already expressed concerns about their
future since adult schools across the state
recently became part of a state-created
regional consortia made up of community
colleges and school districts to determine
the future of adult education. Students are
concerned the focus could be moved to job
and college-based programs.
I dont know what to expect because now
is a kind of difficult time for the adult
school/adult education, said adult school
student Marina Kravtsova. There have
been a lot of budget cuts. I think for
many people its not clear there is a need of
adult school; many people think its just
enough to have community college.
Adult school students, who attend the
schools offerings of morning and evening
classes, have been traveling to Sacramento
to advocate for the programming and some
even run a blog called Adult Education
Matters focusing on the importance of adult
schools and the potential elimination of
many programs. Theyve begun writing letters to the editor of newspapers about their
concerns Design Tech High School, known
as d.tech, will take over the space.
Students like Kravtsova and Kira Sayko
note the San Mateo Adult School is a special place for many immigrants and that
community colleges arent necessarily the
right fit for students learning English or
seeking to get their GED.
Its a step to become involved in life in
the USA, Kravtsova said. We came here

with different levels of education, different


experiences and lifestyles. Its not easy for
many of us to go directly to community
college to learn English; its much more
expensive than adult school and theres the
public transportation question. It is easy to
enroll here (the adult school) because you
just come there and they have a small, very
friendly placement test. All of us found our
place in adult school. Its kind of like second family for a lot of students.
The adult school is currently under the
San Mateo Union High School District and
is working with colleges in the San Mateo
County Community College District,
along with four other adult schools in the
area as part of a consortium, said Assistant
Director Tim Doyle. For this school year,
the program received $3 million in funding, according to Adult School Director
Larry Teshara. The San Mateo Union High
School District is only obligated to keep
the San Mateo Adult School open up until
June 30, 2015. The future of adult school
programming is still uncertain, but he
would not like to see adult school students
sent to community colleges, he said.
Although it would not be mandatory for the
high school district to continue funding
adult education, Teshara hopes that will be
the case. The state will probably continue
to set aside funding for adult education up
until the end of next school year, but after
that its unclear if the district will be given
funding for adult education, he said. Prior to
2009, the Adult School received funding
based on average daily attendance of students. This helped fund building the
SMART Center, Teshara said.
Were lucky because were a basic aid
district and the funding is better than
most, Teshara said. The district is in a
favorable position.
Still, Teshara said the school is at great
risk and the news that d.tech could come to
the SMART Center was alarming for many
students.

Its a close, accessible, flexible and very


user friendly place, he said.
Students who were alarmed by d. tech
potentially taking over the SMART Center
include student Franck Giona.
I felt sad when I heard this news, Giona
wrote in an email. I think that everyone
has the right to study, even d.techs students of course, but why is it necessary to
break a wonderful system like the SMAS
(San Mateo Adult School)? Especially for
only one year, when d.tech can try to get a
real and perennial solution somewhere
else.
Schools are required to inform teachers
by March if they will have a job for the following year, so the adult schools fate
needs to be decided before that, Teshara
said. The governors preliminary budget
will be released in January 2015, so Teshara
hopes this provides some clarity. The state
wants adult schools to propose their budget
needs by the end of this year, he said. He
notes the school board has been supportive
of the adult school.
Theres a gap and the school feels that
gap, said board President Linda Lees
Dwyer. The services of the adult school are
different than community colleges. You see
students coming back to finish high school
and it doesnt really fit with a degree
model.
The district is currently finishing up a
letter to Gov. Jerry Brown regarding needed
state support of adult school education and
its vital place in the San Mateo community.
We are hoping that a letter from the San
Mateo Union High School District a district with a very successful and long-standing adult school program will help to
document the needed state support for adult

23

schools, Sheri Costa-Batis, communications manager for the district, said in an


email.
Meanwhile, the charter school has been
working with the Oracle Corporation to
investigate permanently locating the
school at the Redwood Shores campus on a
vacant 2.5-acre parcel of unoccupied space.
While the school is still in discussions
with Oracle, d. tech has submitted a
Proposition 39 request for district facilities. This provides a safety net should the
project with Oracle be delayed or
unplugged, according to a staff report. Colocation would probably not be an option
for the two schools since there are space
limitations, Liz McManus, superintendent
of business services, previously said.
Students have noted that if the adult school
were to move to only offering evening
classes, it would lose a lot of the 10,000
students it serves annually.
The district has various deadlines for the
facilities process with the charter school
focused on knowledge in action and
extreme personalization. By Dec. 1, it
must notify d.tech in writing of any objections it has to the schools projected average daily attendance or ADA. By Jan. 2,
2015, the charter must respond to any
objections raised by the district regarding
its ADA projections. The district must provide a preliminary offer of facilities to
d. tech, along with detailed information
about the offer and a draft facilities use
agreement by Feb. 1, 2015. The school has
until March 1, 2015, to respond to the districts preliminary offer, while the district
must submit a final offer of facilities by
April 1, 2015. The school then has a month
to accept the districts offer, according to a
staff report.

in French and Spanish as well. Wilson decided to self-publish
the book in multiple languages because she wanted more people to be able to read it.
I wanted a fun, interesting girl my age in my story, said
Wilson, who is the middle sister of three girls. She has a different personality. I also have Sparkle (Giulias unicorn)
because I love horses and have always wanted a unicorn even
though I know theyre not real.
Aside from writing, the fourth-grader enjoys spending time
with Labrador retriever named Sasha and blue-point
Himalayan cat called Allison, horseback riding, musical theater and dancing tap and jazz.
I think I want to be an author and a veterinarian, said
Wilson, who is a student at South San Franciscos Mills
Montessori School.
After discussing the idea for a book in the spring, Wilson
began writing in July. From there, things took off and Wilson
and her family decided it would be great to publish the book.
I took out a really big piece of paper and wrote down all of
my ideas there, she said. Once I started writing all of my
ideas changed. I love reading, so I wanted to write my own
book.
Wilsons parents are big fans of her writing.
We encourage and support her as much as we can, said
Michelles mom, Sabrina Longega Wilson. Shes pretty talented.
In her first published book, Wilsons main character Giulia
adventures to Venice, Alaska, the Sahara Desert, a magical forest, Mexico City and other locations. She describes Eskimos,
nomads and other cultures in the 20-page story. Colorful illustrations came from the artist Leira Cenizal, who goes by the
pseudonym i Cenizal. Wilson found Cenizal online.
Wilson has been giving presentations at the public library
and various schools on how to write a book. Aside from her
first published book, Wilson has written small stories about a
hurt bear she helped and a really adventurous girl.
I tell them to take a lot of time planning and not think of
ideas, she said. Write them all down. Ask other people questions while editing it. If someone doesnt like parts of your
story, dont get discouraged.
In her spare time, she likes to read chapter books and finds
time to write at her familys dinner table on the weekend. She
enjoys the Italian Topolino books as well.
Its like Mickey Mouse, except in Italian and not for
babies, she said.
Wilson plans to give some of the money for her book to the

MATH
Continued from page 1
algebra II and pre-calculus pathway,
leaving out the possibility of
advanced placement math unless students complete geometry in summer
school or a class that combines algebra II and precalculus.
The shift down and removal of
courses in middle school has a longer
effect, said Nancy Hsieh, a parent of
third- and fifth-graders at Highlands
Elementary School. This is really
holding the advanced kids back.
Hsieh, who said she is not against
Common Core standards, learned of
the pathways change through a community website, but heard the district
published the information on its website. For parents, this is a transparency issue since parents dont tend to
scan the district website for information.
Still, the district said the shift is
coming with the new curriculum.
The math pathways have changed
because grade levels where certain
standards are being taught is shifting
quite dramatically, said Heather
Olsen, director of curriculum and
instruction for the district.
Back in May, Phil Daro, who was on
the writing team of Common Core
standards, told parents at a community
education night meeting in San Mateo
that the old curriculum promoted students just trying to get answers to
math problems. Common Core
changes students ways of thinking
from if I get the answer right, Im
done to explaining how they got to
the answer, he said, according to a
meeting video. This method of study-

GOP
Continued from page 1
Senate and amassed a historic majority
in the House, Republicans found themselves stymied by a lame duck president whose unilateral move to curb
deportations for millions left previously dispirited Democrats cheering
and the GOP with no obvious response.
Were working with our members,
looking at the options that are available to us, but I will say to you: The
House will, in fact, act, House Speaker
John Boehner declared at a news conference the day after Obama unveiled
his landmark policy. Obama announced
he was extending deportation protections and a chance for work permits to
as many as 5 million immigrants now
in the country illegally. He also will
make more business visas available
and reorder law enforcement priorities

WEEKEND JOURNAL
ing doesnt allow students in the
United States to actually learn math,
he said.
Countries outperform us because
more of their students learn mathematics, he said.
Yet parents like Anne Pesquie, who
has a 10th-grader at Aragon High
School, a seventh-grader at Borel
Middle School and a fifth-grader and
second-grader
at
Highlands
Elementary School, believes the district is limiting students options with
the new pathway. Pesquie, a self-proclaimed math lover, tutors children in
math, majored in math in college and
received a masters degree in computer
science. Combining algebra II and precalculus into one class would make it
very difficult for students who would
be cramming two years worth of lessons into one, she said.
I want my kid to have at least the
same education I had, Pesquie said.
The district should have informed the
parents and asked, what do you
think? Common Core is fantastic.
Whats the purpose of getting rid of
geometry and reducing algebra?
Pesquie wants to see more transparency in the math placement tests
being given to fifth- and sixth-graders
and notes that if a person has $25,000
their problem is fixed, as she knows
parents who are sending their children
to private school because of the lack of
advanced math classes in the district.
Previously, students just took math
placement tests before sixth-grade.
Her son, a middle schooler, has been
so bored in his math class, she is
teaching him algebra I at home.
I dont understand the purpose of
what theyre (the school district)
doing, she said.
Audrey Ng, vice president of the San
Mateo-Foster City Elementary School

Distinct Board of Trustees, explained


students will still have opportunities
to advance in math and that the school
board is still working on these
options. The possibility of offering
geometry depends on if enough students advance to have a class.
I hear the concern, she said.
Because of the Common Core, there
are shifts from the type of math courses offered at middle school level.
Because were transitioning to a whole
new way of doing math, we want to
make sure students are getting the support they need and they get all the
math background they need.
Currently accelerated sixth-grade
math is only offered at Borel Middle
School, she said.
I hope in the future there will be
enough students to offer advanced
classes at the other schools, Ng said.
Trustee Ed Coady acknowledges that
many parents are concerned about
advanced math being dropped.
Were not trying to hold anyone
back, he said. Well always have
something for every student to strive
for. We do listen to the parents when
they bring up concerns and we want to
make sure were providing opportunities for every student.
There will be a presentation on
Common Core math 7 p.m. Tuesday,
Nov. 25 at Highlands Elementary
Schools LGI. Representatives from
both the San Mateo-Foster City
Elementary and San Mateo Union High
school districts will lead the presentation. The school board will also likely
be discussing the math pathways at its
Dec. 11 meeting.

to focus more squarely on criminals for


deportation.
In the days ahead the peoples house
will rise to this challenge said
Boehner at the Capitol. We will not
stand idle as the president undermines
the rule of law in our country and places
lives at risk. ... Hes damaging the
presidency itself.
But Republicans acknowledged they
were at a disadvantage given that any
legislative solution they settled on
would be subject to a veto by Obama
that they could not likely overturn.
And party leaders were determined to
steer clear of a repeat just a year after
Congress tea party contingent forced a
politically damaging partial government shutdown over Obamas health
care law. But that was the scenario
posed by a push among conservatives
to use must-pass spending legislation
to stop the president.
The situation posed a major challenge to Boehner and Senate Minority
Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who

will take over as majority leader once


the new Congress convenes in January.
As Republicans headed home to their
districts Friday for a weeklong
Thanksgiving break where they anticipated getting an earful from constituents, Obama drew enthusiastic
applause at a rally in Las Vegas where
he began promoting his plans to the
nation.
Our immigration system has been
broken for a very long time and everybody knows it, the president said. We
cant afford it anymore.
Lawmakers
will
return
to
Washington the first week of
December and aim for a clearer direction. Leaders are casting about for a
way to satisfy the most conservative
lawmakers without overreacting and
alienating Hispanic and moderate voters who will be critical for the 2016
election. Republicans will be defending their newfound congressional
majorities then and aiming for the
White House.
