Q & A with Mayoral Candidate Belden


Jacqui Boggess / Staff Writer

Have you ever wondered if a young person can really make a difference in politics? Then Chabot College student, Ryan Belden is a person you should meet. Being only at young age of 24 he has already had a vast political career that seems to keep growing. Growing up he has always had a passion for his city that he has grown up in, he said he wants to keep it a nice place to live for future generations by being mayor of Hayward.

JB: How did you first get into politics?

RB: I have always had a military career in mind but I first became interested in politics because of my grandmother. One day when I was 17 she found out about phone bankers jobs for the cities school board and she knew it would be something it would be interested in. Then in 2004, I campaign for the local school but I became part of the Kerry / Edwards where I went door to door asking for donations for campaign, where I learned so much about social economics. Then in 2006, I campaigned for John Dutra for State Senate. In 2007, I went to the American Civil Liberties Union, but left because of personal beliefs. In 2008, I went to work for the Obama campaign where I did volunteer and walked door to door for two weeks. Currently, I’m working for Bob Wickcowski, who is a progressive Democrat. I’m one of the top people in the office, I organized volunteer schedules.

JB:Why do you want to be mayor of Hayward?

RB: One day I was in Newark and I met this man when I walking door to door campaigning asked me where I was from and I replied and told him I was from Hayward and this gentleman told me that the Tri-Cities in the area referred Hayward to being Oakland Jr. because of the upward crime rate, when I heared this I felt upset because I care and love my city and I don’t want it to be full of crime. I want to change it. Hayward has a lot of problems that can be fixed. I see Hayward as a unhealthy heart, its dirty having trouble beating much like a smokers heart, but if we fix the problem it can become healthy again and beat better then it did before.

JB: If you do become major what are the changes that you have in mind for Hayward?

RB: First I would want to help lower the crime rate, and how you do is to educate the youth. I would want to set up a youth center where kids can go to have help with their homework but also have fun. The city of Fermont has a center called Math and Science Nucleus and its very beneficial to the city. Also we have so many empty buildings in downtown that we can use for a location for the education center. Next I want to have more business to move back in to Hayward, and maybe we can give business owners a small tax break. I also would want more police in Hayward and I would ask CHP to help patrol more parts of Hayward. My last point is to make Hayward more of a college town, We have 2 higher education schools but by the looks of it you wouldn’t know it. We need to attrack people to the city and increase the quietly of life for the citizens.

JB: Do you think you are going to really win?

RB:
I have learned in every campaign is you have to have a winning outlook, if you don’t at least try to have a winning outlook what is the point of trying.

JB: If you win, how will you mange your school life and your duties as mayor?

RB:
I’m going to continue my education at Chabot and also work for the city, when its time for me to transfer I will go to school locally so I can see the success of Hayward through.

JB: How can people get involved and where can they learn how to vote?

RB: You can just stop by your local DMV or city hall to pick up forms to vote, all you have to do is send it through the mail. Its very simple and only takes a few minutes to file out.

JB: Do you have any personal thoughts about the campaign?

RB:
I want to help provided a better quality of life for everyone in Hayward, and currently things need some work. If you want to see a change you must help change the situation.

ASCC elections deemed invalid


As the current semester comes to a close, members of the ASCC held the final meeting of their terms as part of the student government. Yet, as they conclude their final weeks in office, one issue still remains undecided: What is happening with the elections?
Two factions emerged in this debate. On one side are those who say that the elections held last week were valid, and that the results of the election are official.
Other members question the validity not only of the qualifications of the candidates, but the way the election itself was conducted.
Among those defending last weeks election are President Cinthya Flores, vice President Steven Mireles, and election committee chair Yi Miao. Both Flores and Mireles ran for office in this election – Mireles for the position of ASCC president, and Flores, uncontested, for the position of student trustee. As chair of the election committee, Miao is not allowed to run for any office, according to ASCC bylaws.
The members of the ASCC who have come down on the opposite side of this debate are joined by their adviser and Director of Student Life Nancy Soto, as well as Vice President of Student Services Melinda Matsuda.
Soto and Matsuda have both voiced concerns that not all candidates running for office had been verified by the Office of Student Life. Matsuda also said during the meeting that she did not believe that those who had voted during the election could have been properly verified because the ASCC members who conducted the election were not given a roster of all currently enrolled students.
Flores said that the signatures and W numbers of all the students who voted were written down, and that each student’s ID card was checked to make sure they had the current semester’s sticker. The ballots could be checked against the roster later to make sure all W numbers were valid, she said.
In addition, Flores said that she was under the impression that all the candidate packets had been verified because one candidate who is currently on the ASCC received a text message from Soto regarding an issue with her packet.
Soto replied that she had not verified all of the packets before she sent the message. By the time they were taken by election committee chair Miao, she had only completed the verification process for two packets.
On May 13, Matsuda sent an e-mail in which she declared the elections invalid. She was confused about the number of senators who attended the special ASCC meeting on May 10, stating that “15 senators unanimously voted” to delay the elections.
“Although there are differing opinions regarding the validity of the special meeting and other related issues, the mere fact that the election packets were not validated for both candidates’ eligibility and student signatures prior to the voting does not make any voting official,” the e-mail said.
May 14, Flores sent a reply refuting Matsuda’s decision.
“I seriously question [Matsuda’s] ability to fairly assess this situation, since her actions so far have been heavily biased in favor of the other administrator [Soto] involved,” she said.
She also provided additional evidence that quorum was not met during the special meeting. However, she did not respond directly to the concern over the validity of the candidate packets.
She warned other Chabot senate groups: “Faculty and Classified senates beware! You might be next. Does shared governance give administrators the right to intervene in the decision making of student government issues?”
Matsuda does not agree that her actions were inappropriate.
“As vice president of student Services, I have that authority … to preserve the integrity of the [ASCC elections],” she said in an interview.
She said during the senate meeting that members of the ASCC meet with her and “an outside facilitator” sometime over the summer in order to come to an agreement and decide how to proceed with ASCC elections in the fall.

Communication will suffer


Disabled Student Resource Center to lose staff member

Jose Rios / Staff Photo

Jose Rios / Focus Editor

The Disabled Student Resource Center (DSRC) Dharna Patel, an employee, whose visa is set to expire, will no longer be sponsored to stay past 2010.
Patel is trained to communicate with disabled students such as those who are deaf and blind, and produce material in a timely matter. She will have to step down from the services she provides.
“It’s not about the person, but about the position,” said DSRC counselor assistant Richard Blair-Keeney. Blair-Keeney is upset that someone with no proper training will replace Patel, causing the students to fall behind in their work, which for a disabled student catching up with the work is almost impossible. Many of the students depend on the technology and services that Patel provides.  About 300 students use the services Patel provides. “There’s no one that could take Dharnas place, no one understands the technology like Dharna,” said Blair-Keeney. “Why would you let someone like Dharna go, when she is trained for this?”
Losing someone as efficient and accurate as Patel who has worked as a student assistant since 2003 has sent all in a panic. Losing someone so important from the team.  According to Blair-Keeney, it would cost more to outsource Patel’s job if her visa expired.
“I have formed a bond with our students,” said Patel, who is mostly concerned about her students, “so I am concerned about their accommodations. I love what I do.” It’s bringing stress to Patel, students and parents, who are outraged by what is going on and are ready to go to the Chabot-Las Positas College District’s Human Resources Department to see what they can do.
“I did go through the proper channels, I took the right steps and I’m still not getting an answer as to why ‘no’ from the HR department and I deserve to know,” said Patel.
There is no way to extend Patel’s visa because it has already been extended. The center employees  hope that maybe Patel’s work will be enough to prove how qualified she is for the job.  Among those supporting Patel’s petition to stay are Kathleen Allen, director of the DSRC, dean of special services Gerald Shimada and student services vice president Melinda Matsuda.  However, according to Patel, the district’s HR department is not willing to pursue this matter further.
“My concern is that when Dharna leaves, our students won’t get the accommodations they need,” said Counselor Kathleen Allen.
“I feel that I should get a fair shot at applying for the job but if HR pursues this after my visa expires, I don’t get that opportunity,” Patel said.
Students have started a petition, getting signatures to help Patel stay and continue the services she provides them. Those interested in helping Patel or the students may stop by the DSRC in Building 2400 and sign the petition.

The ‘World’s Game’ takes center stage


Lucia Cabrera / Staff Writer

The biggest stage creates the biggest drama. This summer, 31 countries will fall and one will be crowned as champion.
This is what happens when the “world’s game” comes every four years. The FIFA World Cup 2010 will now be held in South Africa. This year South Africa will make history in having the first ever World Cup in their country and on the continent of Africa.
This event will open on June 10, with a concert featuring Alicia Keys, Angelique Kidjo, Amadou & Mariam, Black Eyed Peas, Blk Jks, Freshlyground, Hugh Masekela, John Legend, Juanes and many others. These singers will be part of the event when it starts and when it comes to the end.
This year the eight groups have been chosen. Group A has host South Africa, Mexico, Uruguay, and France. Group B has Argentina, Nigeria, Korea Republic, and Greece. Group C has the teams of England, United States, Algeria, and Slovenia. Group D has Germany, Australia, Serbia, and Ghana. Group E is made up of Netherlands, Denmark, Japan and Cameroon. Group F has defending champion Italy, Paraguay, New Zealand, and Slovakia. Group G is made up of Brazil, Korea DPR, Cote d’Ivoire, and Portugal. Spain, Switzerland, Honduras, and Chile make up group H.
The first match would be held in Johannesburg, South Africa. The teams that will open this event will be the host The Bafana, Bafana South Africa team, against Mexico in the biggest stadium in Soccer City on June 11 at 7 a.m. The Soccer City stadium has a capacity of 94,700. South Africa had to add 99 more seats for more fans to be able to see their teams play.
The Bafana, Bafana have a key player. His name is Kagisho Dikgacoi, who plays middle field, and Mexico had also a key player and he is the new face of Mexico. He is Javier “El Chicharito Hernandez” and he is a striker.
In group C, England and United States will open the event in the Royal Bafokeng stadium. The Royal Bafokeng stadium has a capacity of 44,530. The game will begin on June 12 at 11:30 a.m. This game means a lot for both teams. These teams have one of the biggest rivalries ever. Not only are the two countries rivals but also between the star players. England has David Beckham and the Americans have Landon Donovan. Both players played on the MLS tem the Los Angles Galaxy and had several issues with each other. The only bad thing about this is that David Beckham will not be able to go to South Africa because he got injured in his leg. So he will miss the World Cup.
Now that the match is coming, a lot of the teams have already started to train with their national teams. South Africa has made its team ready to face Mexico. The Bafana, Bafana have played games to help them practice for the World Cup. In the last game on May 16 against Thailand, South Africa won 4-0. Mexico has also played a lot of games to tune up for the World Cup in the United States. On Sunday, Mexico played their final game in El Estadio Azteca in Mexico and beat Chile 1-0. South Africa and Mexico are the ones that have played more games for the opening event.
FIFA has made a list of what games would be the best to watch and which players they would like to see. They chose the opening game of South Africa and Mexico and also the face-to-face match between England and United States. The most important game that FIFA and a lot of people would like to see is Brazil against Portugal. These two teams have two of the greatest players from Real Madrid: the Portuguese Christiano Ronaldo and Brazilian KAKÁ. These two players, along with Argentina’s Messí, are one of the many players to watch in this year’s World Cup. This year, a lot of new faces will be seen. All of these great teams and great players will be seen July 11.
This event will be the event no one will forget. Everyone will make history and be part of the biggest event that only happens every four years.

Gay Straight Alliance provides foundation open to all students


Maggie Wilson/ Opinion Editor

Titwany Cook / Staff Photo

A group of friendly students and their adviser sat around a long brown table. The Gay-Straight Alliance’s president, Jare Martinez, stands at the white board writing events to come. On the list is the May 15 fundraising.
They sold Crispy Cream doughnuts on Castro Street. GSA started selling the doughnuts last month to raise money for the GSA scholarship.
“We decided to continue to fundraise this way because of how successful the first one was,” said Karina Hernandez, the club’s secretary. “GSA was around in the 1980s and 1990s, but we started it in 2003.”
The GSA was founded in 1996 in Utah at East High School by Kelli Peterson. Chabot College’s GSA is advised by Dmitriy Kalyagin, who lends a good ear and guiding hands to this active club. Walking on campus one can clearly see how influential GSA has become. They sell doughnuts and ask for support on gay rights and tolerance.
“GSA is a support group. You can come here and it doesn’t matter what race, gender or ethnicity you are, we support you,” said Karina with a smile as she looked around her at the diversity of GSA which is full of Asian, African American, white and Indian members.
There is warmth and a celebration of life that is felt at GSA.
It’s not just to make money, but to raise a salute to those who’ve gone before.
The fundraising is something of a nod to the past and a struggle to obtain a future for such a wonderful diversity.
Giving back is fun with GSA and they make the idea of a scholarship a reality for those who need it most.
Seeing through the cobwebs and into the light, it seems the Castro is getting some GSA doughnuts to serve a delicious cause.

Instructor shares his passion for photography with students


David Hertz helps his students excell by allowing them to learn in their own ability and pace

Maggie Wilson / Opinion Editor

Photography instructor David Hertz stands next to a student explaining how to improve her photograph.
When asked why he chose photography, he answers, “There was something about it. It hooked me.”
“What really inspires me is just the magic that happens in the darkroom. You go from a blank paper and put it into the chemistry and you come out with a photograph.”
Hertz currently teaches Photo 62, a portfolio class that allows students to build new work.  The class’s work is currently on display in Chabot’s art gallery.
Starting out at Diablo Valley College in 1986,  he was hooked from his first encounter in the dark room. Not long after, he obtained his master’s degree at Academy of Arts University in San Francisco.
Richard Avedon, a pop-culture photographer, is one of Hertz’s heroes. Julian Harbison, a student of Hertz, agrees that Avedon is an inspirational photographer.
“They are almost like magic.” said Harbison.
“Cindy Sherman is another photographer I like  because of the way she puts herself in her photographs,” said Hertz.
Both Harbison and Hertz work in black and white photography.
Hertz said, “I do my work in black and white I started in color, but Chabot no longer offers color.”
Looking at his student, he smiles warmly. “ I have taught here since the summer of 2000, and before that I was a instruction, support technician for seven years at California State East Bay,” said Hertz.
“I’ve been doing this for about five months now,” said Harbison. “Hertz is awesome, He doesn’t bombard you. He is open to how you learn and lets you absorb the information in your own time.”
Hertz and Harbison continue to critique the photos lying on the counter. Hertz squints a little and smiles as Harbison takes on the infectious feeling of confidence.
The spacious room with a curtained room to the left leaves one excited to know what is truly being developed in the darkroom now.

Chabot architecture program builds student success


Maggie Wilson / Opinion Editor

Jack Barnwell / Staff Photo

Across from the Chabot Gallery is a hallway lined with blueprints. In Room 905 architecture instructor Adrian Huang stands in front of his class gesturing to the diagram on his white board.
Huang teaches architecture via AutoCAD. AutoCAD is an architectural design software program.
“AutoCAD is more efficient than when we used to use blue prints,” said Huang.
He walks to his office and points to a model. The models fill his office and books are stacked up like the towers that his students create in AutoCAD. “We use AutoCAD to create models to avoid mistakes in the field.”
Vincent Giovannoni is a landscape designer in his second quarter in the architecture program. “People referenced AutoCAD, so I came back just to take the AutoCAD course.
Adrian’s teaching was so great I came kept coming back,” Giovannoni said.
“His style makes it [learning AutoCAD] fun. He has a great understanding of how people learn.”
“I try to integrate architecture and interior design into one program as well as to use more green materials,” he said.
His students are both professionals and beginning students.
Giovannoni said doing all this computer work can be dry. “AutoCAD is a tool, but once you learn it, AutoCAD becomes fun,” he said.
Eva Sarracco, a landscape architect, concurs that the program is very good here.
“My learning experience has been good. Adrian is fun and very encouraging with students,” Sarracco  said. “I started in architecture 68 two years ago. I find that AutoCAD is helpful in many facets: landscape architecture, architecture and even construction.”
“You have to work with it, [AutoCAD]” said Giovannoni. “It’s like learning a new language.”
Eva agreed. “My advice would be don’t be discouraged. It’s rewarding. Do what you love, and if this is what you love to do, then do it.” Giovannoni sits down at this paper filled desk.
“When your design comes true. It grows into reality that is what makes it fun,” he said with a grin.
Huang majored in architecture and graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and the University of California, Berkeley.
Recently he has proposed to Chabot’s curriculum board that an internship program be created as well as a certification program for architectural technology.
Huang is planning to develop the computer labs into Building Information Modeling, (BIM) which gathers data from the interior flow and usage of the home for impact analysis.
BIM is popular at four-year universities. Five of his students applied to UC Berkeley and four were accepted. One student went to Cal Poly Pomona.
“My next goal is to get some students into Ivy League colleges like Yale, Duke and Stanford,” he said.
The success of his program is due to the detail he encourages.

Far takes heart with every beat


Thomas Jurich / Contributing Writer

Thomas Jurich / Contributing Photographer

Listen close. Take note. A change is coming. A resurrection, if you may call it that.
Far was a little band to come out of Sacramento almost 20 years ago. It started a movement and has a fan base around the world. Now it’s back after 10 years to once again put its name in gold or even platinum.
Never listened to or heard of Far? Now that I dragged you out of the rock you live under they inspire bands such as: Blink 182, Thursday, Jimmy Eat World and almost any emo/rock/hardcore band in the past 15 years.
On May 25, Far will release “At Night We Live,” it’s first album in more than 10 years. Spinning this record reminds me of my youth but has a new powerful mature flavor to it. The first track off the album is called “Deafening” and that is just what it is. Guitarist Shaun Lopez dug deep for this heavy tone that will kick you up one side of the track and down the other. No doubt in my mind after hearing this track this album will not let anyone down.
As you skip through every track for one reason or another, it is breath-taking, from “If We Cared Enough” to the last track “The Ghost,” it kept haunting, which was written by Lopez.
A song I would like to pick out is the title track, “At Night We Live,” a song written about The Deftones’ bassist Chi Cheng, who is currently in a coma after a car accident in San Clara in late November 2008. (www.oneloveforchi.com) Vocalist Jonah Matranga wrote the song when he had a dream about his wonderful friend Chi. The words “In the day time were dead, but at night we live” are still ringing through my head. Honestly this song brings tears.
I also wanted to touch on the song “Burns.” Starting out with “How Could I Put it, You’re F—ing Dead to Me” tells us Far has not forgot how to write emotional music. Matranga has so much heart with the words he speaks it sinks deeper than most. This song will remind you of every bad relationship you have ever had but will leave you on your feet with your middle finger in the air screaming, “You’re F—ing Dead to Me,” not crying in your pillow.
The heart that was put into this album is untested. This is what popular music lacks today.
Every song is so different, yet with the first note, you can tell it is Far. Quote me on this. There is not one band today in main stream music that can produce a record like this. These four guys are some of the most talented in the industry today. Every beat, every note, every word is played with heart.
Already rumors of album of the year are surfacing. Listen to me now. Pick up this album up on May 25, see them at Slims in SF on May 29, and never forget that these guys made the scene and they are taking it back one heart at a time. Far, will forever be one of the most influential bands in music.
