Zone fare changes
Due to the passage of the Pikes
Peak Rural Transportation
Authority (PPRTA) sales tax,
Springs Transit announces the
elimination of zone fares in some
areas. Historically, zone fares were
additional fares for travel that
began or ended outside the
Colorado Springs city limits.
Effective immediately, Zone
Fares will no longer be required
in the following areas:
- Zone Line at Colorado Avenue
and Columbia - Routes #11M and
#11U Zone Line at Palmer Park
and Powers Blvd. - Route #6
- Zone Line at E. Galley and
Powers Blvd. - Route #12
- Zone Line at Pikes Peak
Community College - Route #25
and Route #71
- Zone Line at S. Academy and
Drennan Rd. - Route #5 and #21
Passengers affected by this fare
change, as noted above, who
currently hold an active/unexpired
31-Day Zone Fare Included Ticket
should contact Michelle Wilson at
385-7401 to discuss ticket
exchange opportunities.
Note for Fountain passengers
A zone fare is still required for
passengers getting on or off the bus
(Route #71) within the Fountain
City Limits. The elimination of
certain zone fares is a result of the
passage of the PPRTA. The City
of Fountain elected not to
participate in the funding of the
PPRTA. For more information
about zone fares contact Springs
Transit at 385-7401.

HHS announces $95 million to improve
the health of minorities
HHS Secretary Mike Leavitt
announced $95 million in grants
to develop a program that will
reduce the number of cancer
deaths in minority and poor
populations.
“Our commitment to closing
the health care gap among racial
and ethnic minorities is
unwavering,” Secretary Leavitt
said. “We will
continue to support
community-based
approaches to help
racial and ethnic
minority populations experience
the benefits of modern
medicine.”
HHS’ National Cancer Institute
(NCI), part of the National
Institutes of Health, developed
this new initiative called the
Community Networks Program
(CNP).
Its aim is to reduce cancer
disparities through community
participation in education,
research and training. Up to 25
grantees will develop programs
to increase the use of cancer
interventions in underserved
communities.
Interventions will include
proven approaches including
smoking cessation, increasing
healthy eating and physical
activity, and early detection and
treatment of breast, cervical and
colorectal cancers.
Programs will be designed to
reach
communities
and
populations
experiencing
disproportionate cancer burdens,
and will address African
Americans, American Indians/
Alaska Natives, Hawaiian Natives
and other Pacific Islanders, Asians,
Hispanics/Latinos and rural
underserved populations.
Each CNP will put together an
advisory group that will serve as
the “voice of the community.” The
advisory groups will work with
community members to gather
information and deliver results.
A steering committee of
community-based
leaders,
researchers, clinicians and public
health professionals will provide
additional support.
To sustain successful efforts in
their communities, CNP grantees
also will work closely with
policymakers
and
nongovernmental funding sources.
Together, CNP grantees and
NCI will train investigators,
identify potential research
opportunities and work to
ensure that best practice models
are widely disseminated.
“Given the progress we have
made through cancer research
and the promise of emerging
technology, I believe we are on
course to eliminating
suffering and death due
to cancer,” said NCI
Director Andrew C.
von Eschenbach, M.D.
“But we must be certain that we
do this for all who are in need.
The Community Networks
Program will play an important
role in defining the most
effective way of accomplishing
both goals.”
The CNP builds on advances
from previous initiatives. It will
be administered through
individual
cooperative
agreements between NCI and
the CNP grantees and directed
by NCI’s Center to Reduce
Cancer Health Disparities.

Toma posesión nuevo
gobierno de Irak
La ceremonia, dentro de la Zona
Verde de Bagdad, se realizó
mientras la ola de violencia sigue
azotando al país y las fuerzas
militares de Estados Unidos
continúan enfrentándose a grupos
de insurgentes en la occidental
ciudad de Ramadi, cerca de la
frontera con Siria.
Durante la noche del lunes, dos
aviones de combate F-18 de
Estados Unidos fueron reportados
como perdidos.
La toma de posesión del nuevo
gobierno se realizó casi una
semana después de que el gabinete
fue dado a conocer y más de tres
meses después de las históricas
elecciones, que en ese momento
fueron vistas como un triunfo del
pueblo iraquí, que podría romper
la espina dorsal de la insurgencia.
El primer ministro Ibrahim alJaafari, no logró acuerdos para
nombrar a ministros permanentes
en las carteras de Petróleo,
Defensa, Industria, Derechos
Humanos y Electricidad, y
tampoco pudo nombrar a dos de
los cuatro viceprimer ministros.
Los problemas han sido causados
por disputas acerca de cómo
entregar algunos ministerios a la
minoría musulmana sunita, que
casi masivamente no votó el día
del comicio, en un intento por
descarrilar las elecciones.
A pesar del fuerte
abstencionismo sunita, todas las
facciones políticas quieren verlos
representados en el nuevo
gobierno. Jaafari, un musulmán
chiíta, ha dicho que los sunitas
tendrán siete ministerios, una
porción de poder mayor que los
resultados en las urnas, ya que sólo
conquistaron 17 de los 275
escaños del Parlamento.
Los sunitas -uno de cada cinco
iraquíes-, han presionado para
obtener el Ministerio de Defensa,
pero Jaafari ha rechazado a todos
los candidatos para el cargo que
han nombrado los sunitas,
alegando que todos estuvieron
muy cerca del derrocado Saddam
Hussein o del proscrito Partido
Baath, dominado por los sunitas.
Entre tanto, el primer ministro
Jaafari será el ministro de Defensa
interino.
Ahmad Chalabi, un chiíta que
durante un tiempo estuvo muy
cerca de Estados Unidos y el
Pentágono, será por lo pronto el
ministro interino de Petróleo, y
ocupará uno de los cuatro cargos
de viceprimer ministro.
Los equipos de rescate hallaron
el cuerpo de un piloto
estadounidense cuyo avión de
combate F-18 se estrelló, pero
todavía sigue desaparecido un
segundo avión, dijo el martes el
ejército norteamericano.
Los dos F-18 desaparecieron el
lunes por la noche mientras
volaban en misiones desde el
portaaviones de la marina
estadounidense USS Carl Vinson,
que se encuentra en el Golfo
Pérsico. Un portavoz militar dijo
que no había indicios de que los
aviones hubieran sido derribados
por fuego enemigo. No estaba
claro si podrían haberse
accidentado durante una tormenta
de arena y rayos que afectó al
centro de Irak alrededor de la hora
en la que desaparecieron.
Washington espera reducir sus
pérdidas en Irak retirando a sus
tropas, pero es poco probable que
eso ocurra hasta que las fuerzas
iraquíes demuestren que pueden
garantizar la seguridad del país. El
lunes, las fuerzas de Estados
Unidos mataron a 12 supuestos
insurgentes en un enfrentamiento
armado en Qaim, cerca de Ramadi,
en una zona fronteriza con Siria.
El ejército de Estados Unidos
dijo que seis de sus soldados
resultaron heridos en el combate
cerca de la frontera, en el que se
enfrentaron con supuestos
miembros del ala de Al Qaeda en
Irak, organización dirigida por el
jordano Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.
Los millones de iraquíes que
desafiaron a los atacantes suicidas
cuando acudieron a las urnas el 30
de enero esperaban que serían
recompensados por los nuevos
líderes con una mejora de las
fuerzas de seguridad locales.
Pero los políticos tardaron tres
meses para formar un gabinete
parcial, lo que envalentonó a los
insurrectos que han aumentado sus
ataques desde la creación del
gobierno la semana pasada.
Los coches bomba y los
artefactos explosivos escondidos
en los caminos han matado a cerca
de 150 iraquíes y han herido a
otros 200 desde que el gabinete
fuera anunciado hace seis días,
constituyendo el primer gobierno
democráticamente electo de Irak
en medio siglo.
Urge SRE a reforma migratoria en EU
Al hacer público un reporte sobre
los caza-ilegales fronterizos, la
cancillería
m e x i c a n a
aprovechó para
recordarle
al
gobierno
de
Estados Unidos
que para dar una
solución integral a
este tipo de
problemas es
necesaria una
r e f o r m a
migratoria que
permita que el
flujo de personas
entre México y
EU sea legal,
seguro, ordenado
y respetuoso de
los
derechos
humanos. México dejó claro que
continuará promoviendo con base
en el marco internacional una serie
de derechos para los extranjeros
que no cuentan con la
documentación
migratoria
requerida, bajo la observancia
plena de los marcos legales
estadounidense e internacional.
La Secretaría de Relaciones
Exteriores (SRE) informó que no
hubo ningún caso grave en las
actividades de los Minuteman , no
obstante señalaron que están
preparados para enfrentar por las
vías conducentes posibles actos
futuros de los civiles que toman la
justicia en sus manos.
“Si bien el llamado proyecto
Minuteman no provocó ningún
incidente que lamentar, y sus
actividades han tenido un impacto
mayor en los medios de
comunicación que en las acciones
realizadas, la Secretaría de
Relaciones Exteriores y la red
consular se mantendrán alertas,
para que en caso de que cualquier
miembro de este grupo o de
cualquier otro viole los derechos
de nuestros con nacionales, se
presenten los recursos legales
correspondientes y se haga
justicia”, se indica en el reporte.
Esta iniciativa anunció desde
finales de 2004 que se apostarían
en la frontera de Arizona con
Sonora, del 1 al 30 de abril de
2005, para detener a migrantes,
entre ellos mexicanos, que
intentaran atravesar la línea

Hermosillo, Son. Aun cuando los grupos racistas de Estados Unidos se retiraron de manera
momentánea de la franja fronteriza, la vigilancia de las autoridades permanece en ambos
lados de la frontera, lo que provocó una disminución en el cruce de indocumentados por la
región de Naco, Sonora.
Así lo informó el alcalde de ese municipio ubicado en la frontera entre Sonora y Arizona,
Francisco Vicente Torres Bracamontes, al señalar que de los 5 mil 500 cruces que se
registraban al mes por este corredor fronterizo, el número disminuyó hasta los 2 mil a
partir del 1 de abril.
Indicó que ya se retiraron los grupos xenofóbicos denominados Minutemen, y a pesar de
que en un principio fueron el motivo principal para que se reforzara la vigilancia, ésta
continúa por parte de la Patrulla Fronteriza y la Policía Estatal Preventiva.
También, permanecen elementos de la Guardia Nacional de Estados Unidos, quienes
tienen campamentos a lo largo de la línea fronteriza para vigilar un posible ataque.
Aseveró que también disminuyó la aglomeración de población flotante que se colocaba
en la plaza pública pero también afectó en las ganancias de comercios locales. El Universal

La Cámara Baja aprueba la REAL ID
La medida REAL ID, que exige
a los solicitantes de licencia de
manejo demostrar la ciudadanía o
su residencia legal
en el país, dio otro
paso al frente con la
aprobación de la
Cámara Baja por
368 a 58 votos del
proyecto de gastos
de guerra, donde está
incluida.
El Senado votará
esta semana sobre el
proyecto conciliado
de gastos de 82,000
millones de dólares
para las guerras de
Irak y de Afganistán,
además de ayuda
para las víctimas
asiáticas del maremoto de
diciembre.
Será promulgado por el
presidente George W. Bush, quien
solicitó que se incluyera el
proyecto REAL ID en la versión
final por razones de seguridad
nacional.
“El apoyo inexcusable de la Casa
Blanca a este paquete [REAL ID]
fue lo único que se necesitaba para
su promulgación”, denunció
Angela Kelley, subdirectora del
Foro Nacional de Inmigración.
Pero su autor, el congresista
republicano de Wisconsin, F.
James Sensenbrenner, quien
preside el Comité de Justicia de la
Cámara Baja, afirmó ayer que “ya
era hora de aprobar las reformas
de sentido común contenidas en
esta legislación, las cuales harán
que los ciudadanos estén más
seguros”.
“Conceder permisos de conducir
a todo el mundo, sin saber si [los
solicitantes] están aquí legalmente
es una invitación abierta a los
terroristas y criminales para que se
escondan a pleno día”, advirtió
Sensenbrenner para justificar su
medida.
Pese a las cláusulas migratorias
restrictivas contenidas en la
medida, el voto fue abrumador por
tratarse de un proyecto que
financia las necesidades de las
tropas destacadas en Irak y
Afganistán.
Un esfuerzo final para que los
negociadores de ambas cámaras
volvieran a la mesa de
negociaciones fue derrotado.
Incluso el voto de los
congresistas hispanos se dividió a
favor y en contra de la medida. De
los hispanos demócratas de
California, por ejemplo, Xavier
Becerra, Grace Napolitano y Linda
Sánchez votaron en contra; pero
Joe Baca, Lucille Roybal-Allard,
Hilda Solís y Loretta Sánchez
votaron a favor.
residencial.
La lidera de la minoría demócrata
La medida da tres años a los
de la Cámara Baja, Nancy Pelosi estados para que implementen el
programa y prácticamente los
obliga a hacerlo porque, si se
niegan a ello, las licencias de
conducir de ese estado no tendrían
validez a efectos federales.
Los documentos de otros países,
por ejemplo la matrícula consular
mexicana, tampoco tendrán
validez probatoria en el fuero
federal.
Para las personas con visados
temporales, la licencia de conducir
será válida hasta el día de
expiración de la visa. El máximo
es un año.
El acuerdo “suavizó” las
de
California,
denunció
enérgicamente las cláusulas
migratorias, pero también votó a
favor del proyecto final.
Los demócratas criticaron no sólo
las cláusulas migratorias, sino el
monto de fondos que se están
destinando a una guerra que no
tiene razón de ser, porque no
existían las causas que llevaron a
invadir Irak: las armas de
destrucción masiva.
Con todo, las guerras y la
constante lucha en contra del
terrorismo ya tienen un precio de
más de 300,000 millones de
dólares en los últimos cuatro años.
Las medidas migratorias del
REAL ID fueron criticadas por
tratarse de un proyecto de ley que
se agregó a la versión cameral del
proyecto de gastos. Ni los comités
del Senado ni muchos menos el
pleno tuvieron la oportunidad de
considerar el REAL ID como
proyecto independiente a pesar de
las enormidad de las disposiciones
que impone al país.
La congresista demócrata de
Nueva York, Louise McIntosh
Slaughter, proclamó en el pleno
que “nuestros valientes hombres y
mujeres [de las Fuerzas Armadas]
están sirviendo de vehículo para
crear una tarjeta nacional de
identidad”.
El REAL ID establece que todos
los solicitantes de licencias de
conducir, quienes vayan a
renovarlas o quienes deseen una
tarjeta de identidad del estado,
deben presentar hasta cuatro
documentos que comprueben su
identidad, que son ciudadanos o
que residen legalmente en este
país.
Los solicitantes deberán proveer
certificados de nacimiento,
identificaciones con foto, prueba
del documento de Seguro Social,
y un documento que muestre el

la construcción de una valla de tres

San Diego y México y sigue
permitiendo que el secretario de
Seguridad Interna pase por alto
leyes, mayormente ambientales,
para permitir la construcción de la

poco tiene que ver con la seguridad
nacional y el combate al

con satisfacer las peticiones de los

Los gobiernos estatales y la
Asociación Americana de
Administradores
de
(Departamentos de) Vehículos de
Motor (AAMVA) se oponen al
proyecto por considerarlo un
mandato federal para el que no se
están proveyendo los fondos de
implementación.
Por otro lado, puesto que se trata
de una medida que no debe entrar
en vigor de inmediato, muchos
esperan que, si se promulga,
contenga mecanismos para frenar
su implementación. Al mismo
tiempo, creen que podría ser
revocada si cambia el control
político en el Congreso.

NCLR retira su
conferencia anual de
Los Ángeles
El Consejo Nacional de la Raza
(NCLR),
una
de
las
organizaciones de derechos civiles
más importantes de Estados
Unidos, anunció que no celebrará
su Conferencia Anual 2006 en Los
Ángeles debido a la disputa laboral
existente entre el Consejo de
Empleadores de Hoteles (EC) y el
sindicato de trabajadores hoteleros
(Unite-HERE).
La Conferencia de NCLR es el
evento más grande en la
comunidad latina y atrae a miles
de participantes a la ciudad
anfitriona, lo que genera millones
de dólares para los hoteles,
restaurantes y la
economía relacionada. La nueva
ubicación será anunciada el mes
próximo.
“Sería contrario a quiénes somos
y a lo que hacemos como
organización celebrar un evento
importante en la ciudad mientras
que estas negociaciones están en
curso”, dijo Janet Murguía,
presidente y gerente general de
NCLR.
“En primer lugar, muchos de los
trabajadores en la industria
hotelera
son
latinos
e
inmigrantes”, agregó Murguía.
“En segundo lugar, un número de
organizaciones afiliadas a NCLR
y otros líderes de
la comunidad que
participan
en
n u e s t r a
conferencia
ofrecen su apoyo
al esfuerzo de
mejorar y de
ampliar
las
oportunidades
para
estos
trabajadores”.
Desde el 1 de
julio de 2004, un
total de 1,822
trabajadores
votaron en contra
de la “última y
mejor” oferta de

Hoteles y, de ser necesario,
autorizaron una declaración de
huelga. Sólo 159 empleados
votaron a favor del contrato
laboral.
Aunque el paro no se ha
efectuado, numerosos plantones y
manifestaciones han afectado a
hoteles de lujo como Regent
Beverly Wilshire, Millenium
Biltmore, Westin Bonaventure,
Hyatt Regency Los Ángeles,
Wilshire Grand, Westin Century
Plaza y Sheraton Universal.
Esos hoteles y otros más forman
parte de una industria que genera
aproximadamente 100 millones de
dólares anuales para el
presupuesto de la ciudad.
Parte de esos ingresos son
canalizados para servicios
ofrecidos por el Departamento de
Policía de Los Ángeles (LAPD) y
el Departamento de Bomberos.
En términos generales, el turismo
nacional
e
internacional
contribuye con 11,000 millones de
dólares anuales a la economía de
Los Ángeles.
La decisión anunciada por parte
del Consejo Nacional de La Raza
sorprendió a Fred Muir, vocero del
Consejo de Empleadores de
Hoteles.
“No entiendo cuál es el mensaje
que intentan enviar [por parte del
NCLR]”, dijo Muir. “No sé si vaya
a ser algo bueno para el 85% de
los trabajadores que son latinos. Es
algo tonto no querer traer sus
negocios a Los Ángeles”.
El portavoz indicó que el contrato
laboral entre EC y los 2,800
agremiados a la Local 11 del
sindicato Unite-HERE podría
arreglarse “en menos de un mes si
ellos decidieran regresar de buena
fe a la mesa de negociaciones”.
La última ronda de negociaciones
entre ambas partes se efectuó en
febrero pasado.
“No hay duda de que una disputa
laboral haría imposible que
muchos de nuestros participantes
asistan]”, dijo Janet Murguía.
“Esto, por supuesto, negaría la
posibilidad de celebrar un evento
exitoso”.
“Esperamos que estos temas
laborales sean resueltos de una
manera que responda a las
necesidades de los trabajadores y
de la industria. Cuando suceda eso,
nos encantaría investigar la
posibilidad de volver a Los
Ángeles para un evento futuro”,
dijo la sucesora de Raúl Yzaguirre,
al frente del Consejo Nacional de
La Raza.
“Al elegir una sede para la
Conferencia, tomaremos siempre
en consideración cuán abierta es
la comunidad a sus residentes
latinos y a sus temas de interés.
Estamos conscientes del poder de
nuestra red y de nuestro impacto
económico como comunidad”,
dijo la activista.
“Si creemos que el ambiente en
una ciudad o un estado particular
es hostil a los intereses de los
latinos, nuestro liderazgo no
vacilará en llevar su negocio a otra
parte”. La Opinión
Tenga cuidado con las pastillas para quitar dolor
Prevenir una úlcera de estómago
no amerita el riesgo adicional de
tener un ataque del corazón,
advierte el Dr. Byron Cryer,
profesor auxiliar de medicina
interna de UT Southwestern
Medical Center.
El doctor se refiere al uso de
inhibidores COX-2, fármacos
mercadeados como Celebrex,
Vioxx y Bextra, medicamentos
que fueron aprobados a finales de
los 90 para el tratamiento de dolor
severo de artritis. Ahora, en ciertos
casos, han sido asociados con
complicaciones de úlcera
gastrointestinal.
Aunque Celebrex ha sido
aprobado para permanecer en el
Mercado de los E.U., el Vioxx y
Bextra fueron retirados. Eran muy
populares hasta al otoño pasado,
cuando
el
Vioxx
fue
voluntariamente retirado después
de que estudios clínicos
descubrieron que el uso a largo
plazo
incrementa
significativamente la incidencia de
ataques cardiacos y derrames.
“Mientras que los inhibidores
COX-2 se asocian con un índice
reducido de complicaciones serias
tales como hemorragia en el
estómago e intestinos, su beneficio
gastrointestinal es opacado por los
efectos secundarios en otros
sistemas, específicamente un
incremento en complicaciones
cardiovasculares tales como
ataques cardiacos y derrames,”
dice el Dr. Cryer. El doctor dice
además que las alternativas
incluyen combinar un fármaco
antinflamatorio no esteroide más
antiguo como el ibuprofen (Advil,
Motrin) o naproxen (Aleve) con
medicamentos que reduzcan la
secreción de ácido en el estómago,
tales como Acifex, Nexium,
Prevacid, Prilosec o Protonix.
Las drogas antinflamatorias
etodolac (Lodine) y meloxicam
(Mobic) son similares en
seguridad g astrointestinal a los
inhibidores
COX-2
y
aparentemente no tienen los
mismos riesgos cardiovasculares.
Otra opción es el acetaminofen
(Tylenol) o medicamentos para el
dolor tipo narcóticos. Es
recomendable que consulte con su
médico antes de cambiar su
régimen de medicamentos.
No se debe sentir culpable de las
enfermedades mentales
Las enfermedades mentales no
son un asunto de elección o de
tomar “malas” decisiones, dice el
Dr. Eric Nestler, presidente de
psiquiatría de UT Southwestern
Medical Center.
Las enfermedades tales como la
depresión, enfermedad bipolar y
esquizofrenia son enfermedades
biológicas y genéticas tan
poderosas y devastadoras como las
enfermedades del corazón,
diabetes, cáncer o cualquier otra
condición
médica
significativa.
Aún así las mismas
cargan con un estigma por la
manera en que la sociedad las ve.
Si alguien en su familia ha sido
diagnosticado con alguna
enfermedad mental, el Dr. Nestler
ofrece el siguiente consejo,
además de buscar ayuda
profesional:
Trate el problema de frente –
hable libremente sobre el mismo
y no se sienta culpable, como si
fuera algo que hubiera podido
prevenir, ni actúe de manera
acusadora, como si la persona se
lo hubiera provocado a sí misma.
Diga a sus amigos y familiares
que su ser querido padece de una
enfermedad mental, en lugar de
intentar ocultarlo.
Busque a otras familias en
situaciones similares para darse
cuenta que usted no está solo, y a
organizaciones de investigaciones
que ofrezcan información, consejo
y opciones de tratamiento.
“Las enfermedades mentales son
enfermedades potencialmente
fatales, con altos índices de
mortalidad y deben ser tratadas
como cualquier otra enfermedad
de la salud seria,” dice el Dr.
Nestler.

Nurses, hospitals, healthcare, how they stack up
National Nurses Week coincides
with Florence Nightingale’s
birthday, May 12. Many consider
Nightingale the founder of modern
nursing. The history of Nurses
Week began in 1953 when
Dorothy Sutherland of the U.S.
Department of Health, Education
and Welfare sent the proposal to
President Eisenhower. In 1974,
President Nixon proclaimed a
National Nurse Week. The
celebration of National Hospital
Week began in 1921 when a
magazine editor suggested that
more information about hospitals
might alleviate public fears about
them.
There are 2.4 million nurses in
the United States
92% of registered nurses are
women.
623,000 was the projected growth
in the number of registered nurses
between 2002 and 2012. It is
expected that registered nurses
will experience the largest job
growth of any occupation during
this period.
531,000 licensed practical and
licensed vocational nurses.
1.8 million Nursing, psychiatric
and home health aides.
1,181 nurses per 100,000 residents
in Massachusetts, the highest rate
among states. The District of
Columbia has 1,498. Nevada, with
517, has the lowest rate.
Hospitals
7,569 hospitals nationwide. These
hospitals employ 5.1 million
people.
$536.3 billion. Estimated annual
revenue in 2003 for hospitals, up
6 percent from 2002. Major
sources of revenue were private
insurance ($204 billion, up 8
percent), Medicare ($167 billion,
up 2 percent) and Medicaid ($65
billion, up 7 percent).
At a Hospital
You may encounter one of the
nation’s 819,000 physicians and
surgeons; 77,000 occupational
therapists; 182,000 physical
therapists; or 94,000 respiratory
therapists.
33.7 million.Number of hospital
inpatient discharges in 2002,
amounting to 118 per every 1,000
residents. The average hospital
stay lasts about five days. On any
given day, there are 539,000
hospital inpatients, nationwide,
excluding newborns.
$7,346 Average cost to community
hospitals per patient, per stay.
110.2 million. Number of visits
annually to hospital emergency
rooms. That amounts to 39 for
every 100 people.
Health Insurance
243.3 million people had health
insurance coverage in 2003, an
increase of 1.0 million from 2002.
The percentage of the population
with health insurance in 2003 was
84.4 percent, down from the 84.8
percent with coverage in 2002.
60.4% and 174.0 million. The
percentage and number of people
covered by employment-based
health insurance in 2003, down
from 61.3 percent and 175.3
million in 2002. This decline
essentially explains the fall in total
private health insurance coverage
over the period, from 69.6 percent
to 68.6 percent.
26.6% and 76.8 million. The
percentage and number of people
covered by government health
insurance programs in 2003, up
from 25.7 percent and 73.6 million
in 2002.
91.8% of people living in
households with incomes of
$75,000 or more had health
insurance coverage in 2003. The
likelihood of being covered by
health insurance rises with income,
as the corresponding rate for
people with annual household
incomes of less than $25,000 was
75.8 percent.
82.5% of full-time workers age 18
to 64 were covered by health
insurance in 2003, higher than the
rate for part-time workers (76.2
percent) or nonworkers (74.0
percent).
No Health Insurance
45.0 million people were without
health insurance coverage in 2003,
up from 43.6 million in 2002. The
percentage of people without
coverage also rose, from 15.2
percent in 2002 to 15.6 percent in
2003.

Demand for SBA-backed loans maintains pace
American small businesses
continued borrowing to start and
expand their companies over the
first six months of the current
fiscal year, securing backing from
the U.S. Small Business
Administration on 27 percent more
loans than in the same period a
year ago.
In the first half of FY 2005,
which began on October 1, 2004,
the SBA, through its private sector
lending partners, approved 46,603
loans totaling $6.98 billion
compared to 36,646 loans worth
$5.67 billion in the same period a
year earlier, and 29,342 loans
worth $4.85 billion two years ago.
“The trends we saw at the end of
the first quarter are continuing and
in fact, we’re doing even better,”
said SBA Administrator Hector V.
Barreto.
“We had a record year last fiscal
year and we’re on track to have
another one this year.”
The gains are also reflected in
the SBA’s Certified Development
Company, or 504, loan program.
Through the first six months of the
fiscal year, the 504 program issued
3,871 loans worth $2.04 billion,
more than 4 percent ahead of the
same period a year ago, when the
program had 3,709 loans for $1.75
billion.
Legislation signed into law by
President George W. Bush in
December makes more than $21
billion available to small
businesses through the SBA’s two
main loan programs. The budget
gives SBA the capacity to support
$16 billion in small business
lending under the 7(a) program
and $5 billion under the 504
program.
Additionally, the maximum
government loan guarantee
increased from $1 million to $1.5
million and the program is
operating smoothly on a zero
subsidy basis, without a
congressional appropriation,
meaning that it pays for itself
through modest fees paid by
lenders and borrowers.
Colorado’s gas price drops 1.1 cents
Colorado’s statewide average for
regular, self-serve gasoline
dropped 1.1 cents to $2.22.8 per
gallon last week, according to the
AAA. A month ago, Colorado’s
average was 1.2 cents lower at
$2.21.6 per gallon; a year ago, it
was 36.8 cents lower.
In Denver the average for regular,
self-serve gasoline also dropped
1.3 cents to $2.17.1 cents per
gallon. A spot check of prices in
the Denver Metro area today
shows a wide range of prices from
a low of $2.05.9 to a high of
$2.24.9 per gallon for regular, selfserve gasoline.
Prices for the other eight cities
were mixed, with three cities
listing price increases and five
reporting decreases. Glenwood
Springs reported the highest
decrease at 3.4 cents. Colorado
Springs and Greeley both reported
a price decline of 2.1 cents. Fort
Collins and Vail reported price
declines of 0.7 and 0.4 cents.
Durango, Pueblo and Grand
Junction reported small price
increases of 1.6, 0.9 and 0.1 cents
each. Last week’s national
average price of regular, self-serve
gasoline was $2.20 per gallon;
approximately 35 cents higher
than one year ago. Although
gasoline prices remain very high,
AAA has yet to see any signs that
Americans are abandoning their
summer vacation plans.

Neither the rate nor the number

“OJC Administrators Brad Franz

Latin Academy and Univision spotlight
best in Latin music
The Latin Recording Academy,
the organization behind the Latin

Latin Grammys, and Spanishlanguage television network
Univision announced a new,
multi-year partnership, which
commences with the production
and airing of the 6th Annual Latin
Grammy Awards on November 3,
2005.
“This is a very exciting time for
The Latin Recording
Academy and the Latin
Grammy Awards as we
continue to evolve our
organization and our
show,” said Latin
Recording Academy
President
Gabriel
Abaroa.
“We are delighted to be
forging
this
new
relationship
with
Univision…and we are
looking forward to
working with their team
on the next phase of the

The Univision Network is known
for specials and award shows that
repeatedly draw higher ratings
than

Over the last few years, while
total US Hispanic viewers 18-34
to English-language Broadcast
Network award shows were down
28%, total viewing for the same
demographic to Spanish-language
award shows was up 58%.
Univision will handle production
of the music celebration in
conjunction with The Latin

producer of the Latin Grammy
Awards and current executive
producer of the Grammy telecasts,
will act as a consulting producer.

Also contributing to its smooth

This is the perfect time of year to check your

Road to successful diabetes management
(NUC) - Any long trip involves
careful planning, patience and a
positive attitude. For the 18.2
million Americans with diabetes,
the journey to diabetes
management is a lifelong
endeavor. The directions on the
road map to success are easy to
remember.
“Proper nutrition, regular
exercise and frequent blood
glucose monitoring are the
cornerstones of successful
diabetes management,” says
Lorena Drago, a certified diabetes
educator. “Work with your health
care professional to develop a
diabetes action plan, and you’re on
the road to successfully managing
diabetes!”
Drago recommends the following
tips to help you on your way
towards
better
diabetes
management.
- Break the fast. Studies show that
even a 5 percent weight loss can
positively affect your health and
reduce
diabetes-related
complications. For a person
weighing 200 pounds, that’s just
10 pounds. Eating three meals a
day and establishing regular meal
times can help control calorie
intake and manage weight. Pay
special attention to breakfast.
The first step on the road to
diabetes management is pledging
your commitment to success.
According to the National Weight
Control Registry, people who
regularly eat breakfast are more
likely to achieve and maintain
weight loss.
During the morning rush, grab a
delicious Glucerna bar or shake.
They’re convenient and contain
slowly digested carbohydrates that
help avoid peaks in blood sugar
levels. Ask your health care
professional how to use Glucerna
products in your meal plan.
- Stop stress. Stressful situations
can cause blood sugar to rise or
fall. Walking, stretching and
dancing can all help reduce stress
and lower blood sugar levels.
Keeping a journal to write down
positive thoughts also helps you
work through stressful times.
- Be prepared while on-themove. It’s important to carry
diabetes medications, a blood
glucose meter and supplies with
you at all times. FreeStyle Flash,
the smallest blood glucose meter
in the world, easily fits into a purse
or briefcase. These supplies are

Manténgase lo más fresco en el calor de verano
Con el verano ya próximo, los
expertos aconsejan que las
personas que hacen ejercicio al
aire libre hagan uso de la
precaución y el sentido común.
La evaporación del sudor es
crítica para regular la temperatura
del
cuerpo,
dicen
los
investigadores
de
UT
Southwestern Medical Center.
“El hacer ejercicio cuando hay
mucha humedad, particularmente
en días nublados y calientes, puede
ser aún más peligroso ya que el
sudor no se evapora tan
rápidamente y por tanto no hace
tan bien el trabajo de mantener el
cuerpo fresco,” dice el Dr. Peter
Snell, profesor auxiliar de
medicina interna.
Cuando está muy caliente afuera,
los ejercicios que producen un alto
flujo de aire y por lo tanto
incrementan la evaporación del
sudor, tales como patinar en ruedas
o ciclismo, son buenas alternativas
en lugar correr o caminar, nos dice
el Dr. Snell.
“Uno de los peligros claves de
hacer ejercicio en el calor es la
deshidratación. Siempre lleve
consigo un pachón de agua y
debido a que la sensación de sed
se produce hasta después de la
deshidratación, beba antes de tener
sed,” dice el Dr. Snell. “Es mejor
llevar puesto bloqueador de sol, y
una tela que respire, para que usted
pueda protegerse del sol a la vez
que permite que su cuerpo se
enfríe.”
Agrega además que en calor
especialmente severo, es mejor
realizar el ejercicio temprano en la
mañana
para
evitar
la
deshidratación y lesiones.
Aquéllos que se ejercitan por
periodos largos de tiempo saben
que no deben tomar cantidades
inmoderadas de agua, ya que eso
puede llevar a hiponatremia.
More men take up nursing
(NUE) Higher wages and job
security are prompting more men
to enter the field of nursing.
According to a Vanderbilt
University School of Nursing
study, the number of male nurses
in the United States has nearly
doubled since the 1980s - growing
from 5 percent to 9 percent of the
nation’s 1.8 million nurses.
Just as the number of men in
nursing has steadily climbed, so
has the public’s perception of the
profession. A recent Gallup Poll
ranked nursing as the most trusted
profession, above teachers,
military officers and even doctors.
This is promising news for those
working to end the nationwide
nursing shortage and stave off an
impending health-care crisis.
According to the Vanderbilt study,
the nursing shortage could
approach 800,000 positions by
2020. To recruit and retain more
nurses, educators must address the
shortage of nursing faculty in the
nation’s colleges and universities.
According to an enrollment
survey by the American
Association of Colleges of
Nursing, more than 26,000
qualified applicants were turned
away from undergraduate
programs last year due in large part
to faculty shortages.
Hospitals, universities and
nursing organizations are working
to end the nursing shortage with
help
from
private-sector
initiatives, such as The Johnson &
Johnson Campaign for Nursing’s
Future.
The goals of this $30 million
public-awareness campaign are to
enhance the image of the nursing
profession, recruit new nurses and
faculty and retain nurses currently
in the profession.
“Building awareness of the
shortage of nurses and nurse
faculty, as well as the benefits of a
career in nursing, has had a big
impact,” said Andrea Higham,
director of The Johnson & Johnson
Campaign for Nursing’s Future.
“But concerted efforts must
continue if we’re to head off what
is predicted to be a huge problem
well into the next decade.”
The campaign sponsors
fundraising events called Promise
of Nursing galas, which have
raised more than $7 million for
nursing scholarships, faculty
fellowships and specialized
nursing program grants.
Higham said men are a key target
of the awareness campaign, noting
that if the number of men entering
nursing each year grew to
anywhere near the number of
women entering the field, the
nursing shortage would cease to
exist.

“The ARC New Immigrant
Program has been carefully
designed over the past year, as we
gained a clear understanding of the
needs of the new immigrant
population,” said Larry Brown,
Executive Vice President of
Affordable
Residential
Communities. “Manufactured
home communities are an
excellent alternative to renting for
new immigrants and we’ve now
made it so the majority can buy
one for their families.”
ARC communities are clean,
well-maintained neighborhoods
operated, in many cases, by
bilingual staff. Recently, ARC has
begun to initiate English as a
Second Language programs in
several of their communities for
residents, at little to no cost to
residents.Additional requirements,

Seniors are tech-savvy homebuyers
(NUE) A recent survey of people
age 50 and older revealed that their
attitudes about real estate are
changing and contradicting some
long-held assumptions.
For starters, the survey by ERA
Real Estate, a global leader in the
residential real estate industry,
found that today’s seniors are
becoming
increasingly
comfortable with technology.
Sweeping aside the notion that
older Americans are less
enthusiastic about the Internet, the
survey found that browsing the
Web was the most popular method
for home-buying research among
seniors who are planning to move
within five years.
Another common misconception
about aging homeowners is that
most plan to move to an “active
adult” community. However, the
survey of more than 1,500 people
revealed that only 8 percent of
those thinking about moving
within the next five years would
consider buying a home in an adult
community. More than 61 percent
would prefer to buy a singlefamily home instead.
“Housing needs are not the same
for a person who is 55 as they are
for a person who is 65,” said
Brenda W. Casserly, president and
COO of ERA Franchise Systems
Inc. “Make sure your broker
understands and appreciates your
unique situation and can help you
get exactly what you want,
whether it’s a smaller home, a
vacation house or a condo in an
active adult community.”
To help meet the needs of mature
homebuyers and sellers, ERA has
developed a program called ERA
New Thresholds. The program
was among the first of its kind to
comprehensively target the homebuying and selling needs of the
mature market.
Many ERA brokers and sales
associates - in cooperation with the
Senior Advantage Real Estate
Council, an industry organization
formed to focus on senior concerns
- have obtained the Seniors Real
Estate Specialist designation. ERA
has countless senior specialists
who have completed its online
SRES course.
In addition, ERA Real Estate
offices have a variety of materials
available expressly for mature
consumers. For more information,
