Senator blasts school officials


Jerry Hill wants civil grand jury to look into district actions, conduct
By Angela Swartz
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

After a sometimes tumultuous


relationship with the public over
issues like the Burlingame pool
usage and the placement of a new
charter school in the district, state
Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, is
asking the civil grand jury to
investigate a school boards interactions with the public.
At a San Mateo Union High
School District Board of Trustees
meeting Thursday night, the senator brought up his concerns that
the board has lost its way and that

its actions give little confidence


that it can find its way back.
This attitude is unacceptable,
Hill told four of the five school
board members, as board Vice
President Stephen Rogers was
absent. It is clear that you do not
recognize in yourselves the offensive, divisive and unfitting behavior you have exhibited. Our constituents must be served in a better
way. And our schools must be
responsive to our citizens.
Therefore, I will be asking the
grand jury to institute an investigation into your conduct and
actions.
The district said Friday that

Hills comments were inflammatory and take away from the fact that
the districts mission is to educate
students to the best of its ability.
Hill, however, referenced how
Burlingame Councilman Michael
Brownrigg told the board at a Dec.
11 meeting that the board and district might be out of step with the
public.
For the better part of the last
year, constituents shared with me
their serious concerns that the
lack of transparency, and the disdainful attitude of some board
members, have eroded the public

Investigation on
high school racial
bullying complete
Fate of principal still undecided

Demonstrators shut down two San Francisco transit stations Friday morning and two people were arrested during
a protest to bring attention to what they say are unfair charges against 14 activists accused of blocking rail service
two months ago. Bay Area Rapid Transit spokeswoman Alicia Trost said the Montgomery and Embarcadero
stations reopened after trains ran past the stops for a few hours Friday and snarled the morning commute. Roughly
200 activists tried to overtake the system to protest what they call police brutality and pressure prosecutors to drop
charges against 14 people arrested during a November demonstration tied to a police killing in Missouri.

The investigation surrounding


an El Camino High School students racial bullying allegations
has been completed and the investigation found staff responded
appropriately under the district
protocol, according to the South
San Francisco Unified School
District Board of Trustees.
Back in October, the family of
the 15-year-old teen filed a formal
complaint with the district and
Maurice Goodman, then president
of the Board of Trustees, said it is
also time for his colleagues to
begin a discussion on bullying

and appropriate language. The boy


said he was called a racial slur and
taunted to put a noose around his
own neck. His mother and others
alleged the district dismissed the
issue saying the word is widely
used and the boys treatment was
part of football hazing. An outside
law firm conducted the independent, third-party investigation of
the response of the district staff
and the incident. Board President
Judith Bush revealed at the
Thursday night board meeting that
responses were appropriate.
However, the district is committed to continuous improve-

High school district trustee resigns


Olivia Martinez will be moving to Dallas, Texas
By Angela Swartz
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

After 16 years on the Sequoia Union High


School Districts Board of Trustees, board
Vice President Olivia Martinez is resigning
due to a family move.
With her last day on Feb. 21, the board
will soon move to find a replacement for the
member whose term expires in November.
She was set to be president this year, but
asked to stay in the vice president position.
Martinez made the announcement at the
Wednesday night board meeting.
Ill miss most participating in actions
that make a difference for students, she
said.
Martinez said she hates to leave the board
early, but she is moving with her family to
Dallas, Texas, since her daughters husbands company is relocating there.
I was a young person when I started on
the school board, she said. Its been a big
part of my life. Its something I had a passion for. It gave me an opportunity to really
give back to the community.
From her work as a sociology teacher at

the college level to principal of Luther Burbank


Middle School in San
Francisco, she has been
in the education world
for years. She served as
associate superintendent
to the San Francisco
Unified High School
District, was vice presiOlivia Martinez dent at Caada College, a
social worker and a psychologist.
Trustees like board President Allen Weiner
said Martinez leaves having accomplished
much on the board.
She has, for instance, played a key role
in the selection of some of our outstanding
district- and site-level administrators, has
led community efforts to ensure our students
go to school in world-class facilities and
has worked tirelessly to ensure the fiscal
well-being of the district, even during times
of financial crisis, he wrote in an email.
As a board colleague, I admire the fact that
Olivia fights hard for the positions she
believes in, but when the debate is over,
regardless of our positions, we move on

together to the next issue without acrimony.


I will miss the tremendous experience and
wisdom Olivia brings to our work, but I will
continue to be guided by the fundamental
principle that shaped all her work on the
board: We must always strive to do what is
best for our students and their families.
Martinez said shes most proud of the fact
that when she came on the board, parents in
middle school would stress over the high
schools their students would go to because
they didnt like the high schools in the district. Now, everyone really likes the high
schools programs and academics, she said.
It was all a result of a really deliberate
and diligent effort to make our district the
best possible it is, she said.
Will education work be in Martinezs
future?
Ill be doing a lot of traveling, she said.
Its an unknown new adventure for me. If
its in your blood it stays there, it doesnt
go away.

School board approves


Middle College program
The South San Francisco Unified School
District Board of Trustees voted unanimously Thursday night to be part of a new
Middle College program at Skyline
College.
A Middle College, as an alternative
school, will provide an opportunity for
some district students to attend Skyline
and take both high school and college
courses, all taught by Skyline instructors.
As designed by Skyline officials, district students who complete the two-year
college program can receive high school
credits resulting in graduation as well as
units in college courses leading to a career
technical certificate; the program also can
be utilized as a pathway toward an associate of arts degree and automatic transfer to
the states university system.
The intent is to start the Middle College
partnership in the fall of the 2015-16 academic year. The aim would be to limit the
first group of district students to 50 juniors and the program will be evaluated
annually.

Martial arts teacher sentenced for molesting students


By Michelle Durand
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

A San Mateo martial arts instructor


accused of inappropriately touching two
young female students on separate occasions was sentenced Friday to a year in jail
and ordered to register as a sex offender for
life.
Meng Ricky Wong, 38, of Redwood City,
faced up to three years in prison after taking
a plea deal in September on two felony
counts of child molestation. On Friday, in a
courtroom packed with Wongs supporters,
Judge Jonathan Karesh imposed a six-year
suspended sentence and five years probation
along with the year jail.
Karesh noted that in dealing with thousands of cases, he had never seen such a
huge outpouring of community support in

favor of a defendant, said


District Attorney Steve
Wagstaffe.
Karesh also noted
Wongs lack of record
when opting for probation rather than prison.
Thirteen people spoke
on his behalf last week
Meng Wong during his original sentencing hearing and 37
submitted letters of support.
Defense attorney Ray Buenaventura did
not return a call for comment.
Wong was originally charged with four
felony counts of molestation that carried a
potential life sentence if convicted of abusing multiple victims.
Wong worked at the Tat Wong Kung Fu
Academy on 43rd Avenue between 1999 and

2011. Prosecutors say he fondled two girls,


ages 9 and 11, at different times between
August 2010 and October 2011. The girls
did not know each other.
In the first instance, Wong allegedly took
the girl upstairs at the studio and touched her
breasts and buttocks.
The girl reported the incident but the lack
of corroboration led to no prosecution. In
October 2011, the second girl reported an
identical touching incident upstairs at the
studio.
After Wongs arrest, both girls and their
guardians sued him, the academy, its owner
and its parent company for failing to establish guidelines on interacting with minors
and keeping Wong employed despite the
initial allegation.
Wong has been free on a $100,000 bail
bond.

Parole denied for podiatrist who hired killer


DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT

A podiatrist serving life in prison for


having his business partner killed to collect $60,000 in life insurance was denied
release for three years after reportedly
lying to the parole board about the 1976
murder.
William Moalem, 75, was also denied for
three years in 2013 but exercised his right
under Marsys Law to advance the hearing
because he complied with all the parole
boards requests.
At the latest hearing, San Mateo County
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said
Moalem gave inconsistent statements and
continued to minimize his involvement.

Comment on
or share this story at
www.smdailyjournal.com
Moalem is serving life with the possibility of parole at the California Mens
Colony State Prison at San Luis Obispo for
the Oct. 13, 1976, murder of his podiatrist
business partner Benjamin Hurwitz.
Hurwitz was fatally shot while driving on
State Route 92 in Foster City. The case
grew cold for 23 years until 1998 when
Moalems former wife revealed he had hired
bar bouncer Richard Quilopras to kill
Hurwitz. Moalem, who had financial prob-

lems, was the beneficiary of Hurwitzs


$60,000 life insurance policy and in the
process of buying his podiatry business.
Other men involved in the case also
admitted having introduced Moalem to
Quilopras and driven the hit man the night
of the shooting.
Moalem was convicted of first-degree
murder in 1999 but there was no special circumstance law in 1976 so he was not barred
from parole eligibility.
Quilopras, who was paid $6,000 to kill
Hurwitz, also received a life sentence in the
murder. Moalems wife testified against
him and was given time served and probation for her accessory role helping to
cover up the murder.

Judge rules on suit over
California colleges accreditation
SAN FRANCISCO An accrediting commission must give City College of San
Francisco one of Californias largest
community colleges a chance to respond
to criticism before deciding whether to
stick to its decision to revoke the schools
accreditation, a judge said Friday.
San Francisco Superior Court Judge
Curtis Karnow issued the tentative ruling in
a lawsuit by San Franciscos city attorney
against the Accrediting Commission for
Community and Junior Colleges. The commission decided in July 2013 to revoke
City College of San Franciscos accreditation a year later over concerns about the
schools financial management and governance.
Losing accreditation would likely force
the college to close because unaccredited
schools are ineligible for state and federal
funding. Karnow blocked the revocation
temporarily, and the commission earlier
this month agreed to grant city college a
two-year extension to meet commission
standards.
In the lawsuit, City Attorney Dennis
Herrera sought to have the commissions
decision thrown out. Calls to a spokesman
for Herrera and the commission were not
immediately returned.
City College was deprived of an opportunity to respond in writing to findings of

Olivia, Lucas top


county baby names in 2014
All of the Olivias and Lucases out there are
in good company those were the two
more popular baby names in San Mateo
County last year.
The front-runners emerged in a pool of
5,879 babies born in the county in 2014
which was 5 percent higher than the previous year, according to the office of Mark
Church, the county assessor-county clerkrecorder, which released the list Thursday.
As with past lists, however, the top 10
names for both genders showed little variation although the rankings might differ.
Last year, Lucas was again number one for
boys after coming in fourth the year before
and Sophia commanded the top girls spot
after a third-place showing in 2013. The
Social Security Administration has not yet
released its annual tally but in 2013 Noah
was the favorite name ending Jacobs 14year run and Sophia remained top for
girls for a third straight year. Olivia was the
second more popular.

Obama comes out swinging


against new Iran sanctions
By Josh Lederman
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON President Barack


Obama came out swinging Friday against
congressional attempts to slap fresh sanctions on Iran, warning such a move would
likely destroy nuclear talks and increase
prospects for a military showdown. Vowing
to veto any sanctions that reach his desk,
Obama pleaded, Just hold your fire.
In an unusual move by a foreign leader,
British Prime Minister David Cameron said
he was personally calling U.S. senators to
say that new sanctions would drive a wedge
through international unity.
Standing side by side with Cameron at the
White House, Obama said world powers
would be sympathetic to Iran and would
blame the U.S. if Congress moved ahead
with more sanctions while fragile negotiations are under way. At that point, Obama
argued, the world would lose its best chance
to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear
weapon.
Congress should be aware that if this
diplomatic solution fails, then the risks and
likelihood that this ends up being at some
point a military confrontation is height-

ened and Congress


will have to own that as
well, Obama said in his
most
impassioned
rebuke yet of the sanctions effort.
The U.S., the U.K. and
other world powers are
struggling to reach a
framework accord with
Barack Obama Iran by March, with
hopes of finalizing a
longer-term deal by July that would limit
Irans ability to produce a nuclear weapon.
Secretary of State John Kerry has spent much
of the week holed up in European hotels with
his Iranian counterpart, Foreign Minister
Mohammed Javad Zarif, as both countries
seek to infuse the talks with fresh urgency.
But in Washington, many lawmakers are
so skeptical of the negotiations that they
have insisted the U.S. move forward with
additional sanctions to keep tightening the
screws on Tehran.
A tense exchange between Obama and a
top Democrat this week illustrated the
degree to which Obamas diplomacy with
Iran has rattled even members of his own
party.

Republicans make plans


to hold nine presidential debates
CORONADO The Republican National
Committee is announcing plans to hold
nine presidential primary debates, with the
first just seven months away.
RNC officials reported Friday the first
debate is scheduled for Ohio in August. The
announcement follows months of negotiations between media partners and a field of
more than two dozen White House
prospects.
It represents a sharp decline in the number of debates from the 2012 election season.
Specific dates were not announced on
Friday, but the rough timeline includes
debates in California in September,
Colorado in October, Nevada in December,
Iowa in January, New Hampshire, South
Carolina and Florida in February. Another
three debates are pending.
The shift is part of several rule changes
designed to make the partys nominee
stronger in the general election.

authorities said a dozen searches led
to the seizure of four Kalashnikov

also found, which Belgian authorities


said suggested the plotters had intended to masquerade as police officers.
The seizures followed a vast antiterrorism sweep on Thursday in and
around Brussels and the eastern industrial city of Verviers in which two suspects were killed in a firefight and a
third wounded as police closed in on
their hideout. Authorities said the

Islamic State group reaches
for Afghanistan and Pakistan
CAMP SHORABAK, Afghanistan Afghanistan and
Pakistan, home to al-Qaida and Taliban militants and the
focus of the longest war in U.S. history, face a new, emerging threat from the Islamic State group, officials have told
the Associated Press.
Disenchanted extremists from the Taliban and other
organizations, impressed by the Islamic State groups territorial gains and slick online propaganda, have begun raising its black flag in extremist-dominated areas of both
countries.
In Pakistan, an online video purportedly shows militants
beheading a man while pledging their allegiance to the IS.
In Afghanistan, there have even been reports of militant
rivalries, with clashes erupting between Taliban fighters
and Islamic State militants.
Analysts and officials say the number of IS supporters in
the Afghan-Pakistan region remains small and that the
group faces resistance from militants with strong tribal
links. However, the rise of even a small Islamic State affiliate could further destabilize the region and complicate U.S.
and NATO efforts to end the 13-year Afghan war.
The Taliban remain the regions pre-eminent insurgency,
with nearly 20 years of experience battling Afghan warlords and international troops. But the Taliban are not a
particularly sexy ideology or military force, and the risk
lies in the Taliban looking increasingly out of date, said a
Western diplomat, speaking on condition of anonymity to
discuss intelligence matters.

INVESTIGATION
Continued from page 1
ment, and in the course of investigating this matter, the
board and superintendent identified opportunities for
improving the tone, environment and communication at the
school for the benefit of the districts students, parents and
staff, she said. The superintendent has been working and
will continue to work with staff to develop and implement
measures to make these improvements happen.
The schools principal, David Putney, was put on administrative leave following the incident. Linda McDaniel has
been serving as interim principal and Michael Zozos is now
the interim assistant principal. At this point, the district
hasnt made a decision on reinstating Putney, said
Superintendent Alejandro Hogan.
The teen reported that other students called him a racial
slur and taunted him to put a noose around his own neck. His
family said the principal brushed off the incidents by saying the term n- was a widely used global word and that
Hogan was also dismissive. The family said the teen also
had water and dirt poured on his head by football team members who used similar racial insults but werent punished.
The boys mother said rather than taking action, Putney
suggested she start a program herself to educate kids about
the use of the word.
Hogan said Putney was placed on leave in response to a
uniform complaint that was submitted to the district but did
not elaborate on the details. Standard procedure calls for any
employee to be placed on leave during an investigation, he
said.
The investigation points out there are some things we
need to work on, Hogan said. Its not a totally clean bill
of health. Theres some elements of climate we need to work
with.
The board did hear a presentation Thursday night on the
Facing History and Ourselves organization that works with
schools and districts to embed the use of culturally responsive teaching practices into social science curriculum and
instruction. McDaniel and representatives from the organization presented information on the program and a plan to
bring it to El Camino High School.

Foie gras
Other voices

The Orange County Register

mericans love food. Now


more than ever, its a refuge
from the worlds intractable
difculties and a rich, tactile alternative to the arms-length enjoyments of the Internet. And with
money the key to satisfying desires
online and off, the skys the limit
when it comes to luxury food. Thats
why its no surprise that Californians
still crave foie gras despite the
statewide ban that took effect two
years ago.
And thats why its important that a
federal judge kicked off the new year
by blocking the enforcement of that
ban. Holding that federal poultry law
pre-empts the Golden States foie gras
prohibition, Judge Stephen V. Wilson
drew cheers from chefs up and down
the coast yes, even in activist

redoubts like San Francisco.


Perhaps cleverly, Judge Wilson
effectively sidestepped the broader
constitutional issues. But that left
open a window of opportunity for
groups like the Humane Society,
which insist that foie gras is a simple
animal-cruelty issue. Their plan is to
convince the (notoriously activist)
Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
that its permissive interpretation of
the interstate commerce clause should
extend to protect the ban. Previously,
the court had ruled that California
could prohibit foie gras without running afoul of constitutional legal
precedent, which has long enforced
the free ow of products across state
borders.
If the Ninth Circuit agrees, its like-

ly that the foie gras case will make its


way up the judicial food chain possibly to the Supreme Court. Either
way, the controversy will feed the
ames of the culture war, which now
extends in more ways than one to
what and how we eat.
For evidence, simply recall the way
that Huy Fong Foods Sriracha sauce
became a political football, or the
unending arguments over efforts to
force kids to eat governmentapproved healthy meals.
The more that food becomes a public health issue, an animal rights
issue, or any one of our many bones
of national contention, the more
well feel like there isnt anyplace we
can go to enjoy ourselves, relax or
celebrate. Whatever the legal and ethical intricacies, thats going to worsen Americas besieged, put-upon mentality a painful loss not just for
fun, but for freedom.

Letters to the editor


On Charlie Hebdo
Editor,
President Obama should have joined
the march of the hypocritical world
leaders in Paris, those heads of state
like the British, Egyptians and Turks
who want to imprison their truth
tellers as much as Obama wants to
imprison Julian Assange and Edward
Snowden. All the while they march
arm in arm with those who do really
sympathize with the murdered cartoonists and innocent citizens.
I guess in the cause of consistency
he should have. The strange thing is
that if Charlie Hebdo was publishing
here, we would have been picketing
them as well for their hate speech and
the disgusting and demeaning pieces
they print. This is from an avowed
atheist, by the way. What I saw in
Charlie Hebdo Shooting: 12 Killed
in Attack on French Satirical
Magazine Known for Muhammad
Cartoons (in the Jan. 7 edition of
Democracy Now) was a most intelligent statement byTariq Ali on this
subject. He said it appeared to be a
conict between religious fundamentalists and secular fundamentalists but
with unacceptable violence.

Water more
important than trains
Editor,
Gov. Jerry Brown is a conservative
guy. Im surprised hes so enthused
about the high-speed train. He should
invest those billions of dollars in
desalination plants. With the everincreasing population and a dry climate we desperately need a reliable
source of water: the ocean. We talk
about enlarging reservoirs and redistribution of water, but rst sufcient
water has to come from the skies,
something over which we have no
control.

Legacies that
live beyond us

have been to the mountaintop ... and I have seen


the promised land. I may not get there with you.
These were some of the last recorded sentiments
of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at a local church in Memphis
on April 3, 1968 the night before he was fatally shot.
King had received numerous death threats in the weeks leading up to that speech, and his awareness of those threats
echoed throughout his speech.
King admitted to the large congregation that he, like anyone, would like to live a long life, but that he was not concerned about that. He was much more concerned about making real the possibility of a postracial society in which his children would be judged by the content of their character, rather than
by the color of their skin. King
went on to say he feared nothing
because he knew that we, as a
people, would get to that promised land one day.
Although the curtain fell that
night on Kings life, his nal
sentiments not only tell us that
he knew death was imminent, but
that he was willing to be a sacriJonathan Madison
ce for a cause much greater than
himself. As such, it should come as no surprise that King
said, [a] man who does not have something for which he is
willing to die is not t to live. And, King was right his
values and inspirations have long outlasted his physical
form.
History tells us that martyrdom and sacrice in the name
of causes for peace, freedom and justice have fueled some of
the largest movements throughout time. Perhaps this is
because it is difcult for many of us to fathom the idea of
believing so passionately in a cause for which we would be
willing to stop breathing for its fruition.
History also tells us that King is just one of the many who
have sacriced their lives for a virtuous cause much greater
than themselves. Perhaps one of the rst was worldrenowned Greek philosopher Socrates. Credited as one of
the founders of western philosophy, Socrates developed
ideas we all embrace today, such as the concepts of justice,
truth and morals. Whats more, Socrates was among the rst
to challenge the conventional wisdom of the Athenian government.
In arguing the value of critical thinking and logic as an
alternative to the blind trust the Athenian government
placed in the gods, the Athenian government accused him of
poisoning the minds of the youth and rejecting their traditional ways of life. At his trial before a jury of 500, Socrates
delivered a powerful speech that has withstood the test of
time, even in his death. First, he posed the question about
the worth of a man who does not have the wit to die for
something meaningful. He goes on to suggest that his death
alone would not suppress his ideas and future potential
thinkers who would reject the status quo. He was subsequently sentenced to death. And, as he predicted, his death did not
stop his ideals or philosophy as they are embraced and
enshrined in our society.
Jesus Christ was crucied in the Roman Empires efforts to
suppress his words of faith, healing and everlasting life.
However, those efforts resoundingly failed as the Bible
the source of his teachings continues to be the most
widely distributed and best-selling book worldwide, according to the Guinness Book of World Records.
Mahatma Gandhi also has his place in this legacy. In
efforts to silence the preeminent leaders message of peaceful resistance and non-violence in Indias independence
movement during the British Rule, Gandhi was assassinated
in 1948. Gandhis ideals of peace and nonviolent protest,
however, continue to live on today.
Add a former U.S. president to that list. President Abraham
Lincoln is primarily known for his renowned leadership during Americas Civil War, and his Emancipation
Proclamation abolishing slavery for hundreds of thousands of African-Americans. Lincoln may have been slain,
but his legacy of bold leadership and ardent patriotism continues to run through the bone and sinew of our democracy.
Each of these prominent leaders have had the courage to
do what many considered unthinkable, and sacriced their
lives for those causes. While their time here on earth was
short-lived, each of their legacies, teachings and virtues
have proven to be immortal. On this Martin Luther King
Day, let us remember to take a brief moment to honor this
legacy of sacrice in the name of causes much greater than
ourselves. Equally important, let us strive to never take for
granted the privileges and opportunities that we possess
today because of those sacrices.

NEW YORK A surge in oil and gas


companies pulled the stock market out
of a five-day slump on Friday, as the
price of crude swung higher.
Oil prices jumped after the
International Energy Agency predicted
drillers would cut production this year.
Exxon Mobil, Chevron and other energy companies led all 10 sectors of the
Standard & Poors 500 index to gains,
climbing 3 percent. Oils seven-month
slide had cut its price by more than
half.
Lower oil prices on the whole are
supportive of economic growth worldwide, said Jason Pride, director of
investment strategy at Glenmede Trust.
Theyre very helpful for Japan,
Europe, China and India. Its clearly a
good thing.
The S&P 500 index gained 26.75

The Dow Jones industrial average
climbed 190.86 points, or 1.1 percent,
to close at 17,511.57, and the Nasdaq
rose 63.56 points, or 1.4 percent, to
4,634.38.
The rally came at the end of another
rough week for the market. Since the
start of the year, worries about the
strength of the global economy and
falling oil prices have weighed major

indexes down. Even with its strong


performance on Friday, the S&P 500
still lost 1 percent for the week, its
third straight weekly drop.
There has been a lot of conflicting
information to digest, recently, said
Anastasia Amoroso, a global market
strategist at J.P. Morgan Asset
Management.
Amoroso said the big question has
been whether the recent slump in oil
prices will lead to other problems, such
as deflation, a downward spiral in
prices that could put companies out of
business. Are low oil prices a good or
a bad thing? she asked, rhetorically.
For stocks, deflation is not so great.
Benchmark U.S. crude jumped $2.44
on Friday to settle at $48.69 a barrel in
New York trading. Brent crude, a benchmark for international oils used by
many U.S. refineries, added 31 cents to
$50.17 in London.
The economic reports out Friday
offered investors some encouragement.

VC firms rain down cash on tech


startups but is a bubble brewing?
By Brandon Bailey
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN FRANCISCO Cash rained


down on startups in 2014, as venture
capitalists poured a whopping $48.3
billion into new U.S. companies
levels not seen since before the dotcom bubble burst in 2001. Strong technology IPOs are luring investors chasing the next big return, but with valuations this high, critics suggest some
investors may be setting themselves
up for a major fall.
Its not that many businesses arent
viable, but the question is, what are
you paying for them? said Mark
Cannice, a professor of entrepreneurship at the University of San
Francisco.
Venture funding surged more than 60
percent in 2014 from the prior year,
most often fueling software and
biotechnology companies, according
to a new MoneyTree Report issued by
PricewaterhouseCoopers and the

National Venture Capital Association,


based on data from Thomson Reuters.
But the money wasnt spread around to
buoy many more companies. A few just
got huge piles of cash.
Last year saw a record 47 megadeals, defined as investments of more
than $100 million. Thats nearly twice
as many as reported in 2013, said Mark
McCaffrey of PricewaterhouseCoopers,
who leads the accounting and consulting firms global software practice.
Uber Technologies, the ride-hailing
service disrupting the transportation
industry and generating plenty of
press, received the top two biggest
rounds of investment last year. Each
raised $1.2 billion for Uber, and the
companys value is now pegged at $41
billion. Other major deals included
$542 million (mostly from Google
Inc.) invested in Magic Leap Inc., a
secretive startup working on virtual
reality technology; $500 million in
Vice Media, which operates online
news and video channels; and $485

million in SnapChat, the popular messaging service.


Whats driving those deals?
U.S. tech startups are proving they
can reach vast global markets and reap
sizable revenue, said McCaffrey. And
there are more investors eager to get a
piece of that return private equity
and hedge funds and corporate investment divisions are vying with traditional venture capitalists to back
promising startups. But critics say
some companies may never make
enough money to justify the sky-high
valuations.
The worries harken back to the go-go
year of 2000, when the dot-com boom
drove venture funding to a peak of
$105 billion. But then a wave of new
Internet companies crested and collapsed, many of them failing to ever
make money. Venture funding bottomed at $19.7 billion by 2003 and
spent the last decade bobbing in a $20
billion to $30 billion range before
making the big leap last year.

Goldmans stock dipped $1.26, or 0.7
percent, to $177.23.
It was a recurring theme for a week in
which JPMorgan Chase, Bank of
America and other big banks turned in
results that missed analysts forecasts.
Overall, analysts predict that big corporations will post earnings growth of
4 percent, according to S&P Capital
IQ. Sales are expected to rise just 2.1
percent, largely the result of falling
revenue for oil companies.
Most major markets in Europe closed
with solid gains. Germanys DAX and
Frances CAC 40 climbed 1.3 percent.
Britains FTSE 100 rose 0.8 percent.
A move by the Swiss National Bank
on Thursday rippled through currency
markets, after the central bank ditched
its policy to cap the rise of the Swiss
franc. Following the news, the Swiss
franc spiked against both the euro and
the dollar. Switzerlands stock market
sank again on Friday, losing 6 percent.
The move in the Swiss franc rocked
brokerages that deal in foreign currencies. FXCM, a New York-based brokerage, said late Thursday that its big losses may have put the company in breach
of regulatory requirements. FXCMs
stock plunged ahead of the opening
bell before trading in its shares was
suspended.

Aetna picks Gilead Sciences
hepatitis C drugs over AbbVies
TRENTON, N.J. Insurer Aetna has made new hepatitis C
drugs from Gilead Sciences Inc. preferred treatments for customers with the liver-destroying virus.
Aetna Inc. said Friday that its reached a deal with Foster
City-based Gilead bringing discounts for Sovaldi and
Harvoni, which have list prices of about $84,000 and
$94,000, respectively, for a course of treatment. The
amount of the discount wasnt disclosed.
Aetnas decision follows moves by two huge prescription
benefit managers, Express Scripts Holdings Co. and CVS
Health Corp., to wring big discounts from makers of a new
generation of hepatitis C medicines that cure nearly all
patients, in as little as eight weeks. Besides Gileads medicines, AbbVie Inc.s combo treatment, Viekira Pak, was
launched last month with a list price of about $83,300.
Aetnas deal affects customers who get their health care
coverage from an employer or a health care exchange, or
just over 10.8 million people, according to a company
spokeswoman.
Patients must go through Aetnas preauthorization
process before they can fill prescriptions for any hepatitis

Astronauts flee U.S. side


of space station but no sign of leak
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. In a rare scare, astronauts fled
the American side of the International Space Station on
Wednesday after an alarm indicated a possible toxic leak.
NASA later said there was no leak of ammonia coolant and a
computer problem likely set off the false alarm.
By Wednesday afternoon, the astronauts were back in the
U.S. part of the orbiting outpost. Earlier, the six crew members had huddled safely on the Russian side once when the
alarm sounded and again following an initial all-clear.
Hey everybody, thanks for your concern, Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti said via Twitter. Were all safe
& doing well in the Russian segment.
The unscheduled excitement, as NASA called it, occurred
around 4 a.m. EST, well into the station crews workday.
As alarms blared, the astronauts followed emergency procedures in slapping on oxygen masks, taking cover in the
Russian quarters, then sealing the hatches between the U.S.
and Russian sides.

NBC had previously announced it was dropping its plans

Emotional win for Knights


By Nathan Mollat
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

The Hillsdale boys basketball team started out hot when the Knights took on host
San Mateo Friday night and they never
cooled off.
The Knights had three players score in
double figures as they shot 50 percent from
the field, eclipsing the 60-point mark for
the third time this season, beating the
Bearcats 61-42.
Its been an emotional
week, said Hillsdale
coach Brett Stevenson.
My best friend, Toni
Pahulu, died of a heart
attack. We really played
the game for him
tonight. He was beloved
by everyone in the
Toni Pahulu Hillsdale community.
Stevenson said Pahulu
was a three-sport star at Hillsdale in the
early 1990s, graduating in 1993. He was 40
years old and is survived by his wife and six
children.
Hillsdale (3-1 PAL South, 12-3 overall)
may have the most balanced and deep team
since Stevenson took over the head coaching duties. It seems every night there is a
different leading scorer and Friday was no
different. Junior guard Taiga Schwarz scored
a game-high 16 points, draining four 3pointers in the process.
He shot it really well against Carlmont
Wednesday night, Stevenson said.
Wing Adam Schembri added 12 and point
guard Colin Low chipped in with 10, going
6 of 7 from the free throw line.
We didnt go a good job at all defensively tonight, said San Mateo coach Marvin
Lui. Thats way too many points (to
allow).
San Mateo (0-4, 5-11) got off to slow
start again, just as the Bearcats did in
Wednesdays 54-49 loss to Sequoia. They
managed just five points in the opening
quarter and trailed 15-5 after the first period.
Unlike Wednesday, when they rallied to
take a late lead against the Cherokees, there
would be no coming back against the

Cap scores
key win over
Burlingame
By Terry Bernal
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

As Brianna Deckman goes, so do the


Mustangs.
Capuchino girls basketball didnt play its
most impressive game of the season Friday
night. But after Deckman scored just two points
in the first half, the senior bounced back to total
10 in the second half to lead the Mustangs to a
key 39-32 win over Peninsula Athletic League
South Division rival Burlingame.
Deckman led all Cap scorers with 12 points,
but got some help from the new girl in
Mustangs mix junior guard Sera Quintana.
Quintana, who transferred
from St. Ignatius earlier this
year, was activated for
Fridays game and made a
solid impression by coming off the bench in the second quarter total 10 points.
Great
performance,
Cap head coach Mike
Dozier said. [Quintana]
Sera Quintana got us going a little bit.
She brought a little excitement when we needed that pickup, because we
were a little flat.
Not only was in Quintana's Cap debut, it was
her varsity debut as well.
Yes, I was very nervous, Quintana said.
There were so many people.
The Mustangs struggled from the field early
on, shooting at just a 5-for-39 clip in the first
half. With the stubborn Deckman not being able
to find her mark from around the perimeter,
Burlingame swooped in on the boards to hold
the advantage for most of the half.
It wasnt until midway through the second
quarter that Cap took a 13-12 lead on Deckmans
first field goal of the game a physical but balanced drive to the hoop with a nice touch on a
finger roll off the glass before she tumbled to the
ground.

It hasnt been easy Luck, Colts looking

meet for NFC title

SEATTLE Eventually, the paths of Green


Bay and Seattle were going to cross again.
After they opened the 2014 NFL season in
early September, it seemed inevitable that
Aaron Rodgers would get a second chance to
throw at Richard Sherman
if he wanted to. That
Russell Wilson would have
to avoid Clay Matthews
trying to chase him down.
And that the Packers would
get another opportunity to
topple Seattle and be the
elite of the NFC.
They were the two best
Aaron Rodgers teams in the conference in
the second half of the regular season. So its only fitting the Packers and
Seahawks meet Sunday for the NFC champi-

onship and a trip to the


Super Bowl.
Its just the way it
should be. It should be just
like that right now, Seattle
coach Pete Carroll said.
Dont be mistaken by
their recent prowess, this
wasnt a smooth ride for
Russell Wilson either franchise. Whether it
was Rodgers telling
Packers fans to R-E-L-A-X early in the season, or Seattle dealing with the expectations of
being a Super Bowl champion, along with the
stunning midseason trade of Percy Harvin, this
was no cruise.
It was a process throughout the year, Green
Bay linebacker Julius Peppers said. You get
better and better each week. That is the main
thing you want to do each week, get better than

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Step by step,


Andrew Luck has climbed into the upper
echelon of NFL quarterbacks.
In each of his three seasons, he and the
Indianapolis Colts got one game closer to
the Super Bowl. Now he can reach that destination if he beats Tom Brady and the New
England Patriots in the AFC championship
game Sunday night.
I want to beat the best, Luck said.
Theres a competitive spirit in all of this:
Hey, the harder it is, the better. Lets go try
and make it happen.
If the Colts (13-5) upset the Patriots (134), Luck will have accomplished a difficult
feat: beating Peyton Manning and Brady in
consecutive games on the way to the Super
Bowl.
But a win against the 37-year-old Brady,
12 years his senior, wont be a major measuring stick for Lucks progress.
Thats not a benchmark, he said. Hes a
great role model for any quarterback at any

level playing the position, but its a team


game. To me, its as simple as that.
Luck has piled up
impressive
statistics
since being drafted with
the first pick out of
Stanford in 2012.
This season, he led the
Andrew Luck
NFL with 40 touchdown
passes and surpassed Mannings single-season franchise high with 4,761 yards passing. Hes also the only player to throw for
at least 250 yards in each of his first five
playoff games.
In his three seasons, the Colts lost in the
wild-card round, then reached the division
round and now are playing for the AFC title
after Luck threw for 265 yards and two
touchdowns in a 24-13 divisional round win
over Denver and Manning.
Hes just stayed with the process, Colts
coach Chuck Pagano said. Right now he
probably feels as good as hes ever felt.

Panther stay perfect in PAL play with win over South City
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

A splendid match got off to quite the fast


start as Burlingame scored an important 2-1
win Friday at South City.
Burlingame forward Sharif Shibli took the
opening kickoff, drove straight downfield
and booted a clean goal 20 seconds in the
match to set the tone for a strong performance by the Panthers.
With the win, Burlingame (4-0 in PAL Bay,
4-2-2 overall) remains undefeated in
Peninsula Athletic League Bay Division
play. The loss was South City's first in
league of the year.
It's probably the most important game of
the season, Burlingame goalkeeper Jamie
Ybarra said. It was a good three points on
the road. It was a great team effort.
But South City (3-1, 4-4-2) was up to the
challenge in the aggressive and physical
matchup, keeping the score in check until
the half despite playing a man down after the

double-yellow ejection.
We played with 10
most of the game, and
they played like they ARE
warriors, South City
Jamie Ybarra head coach Daniel Flores
said. They showed their
heart up to the end.
While Ybarra was flawless by stopping all
five South City shots on goal in the game,
the Warriors took advantage an opportunity
in the second half, culminating in a penalty
kick by Rafael Vieyra. It was set up by a deep
triangle pass from junior Jerry Barajas to
Angel Escamilla, who sliced a pass into the
penalty box for Vieyra for a shot buzzing out
of bounds off a touch by Ybarra.
The physical exchange on the ensuing corner kick resulted in a penalty on Burlingame.
Vieyra cashed in on the penalty kick with a
clean shot to tie the game 1-1.

South City followed with an onslaught of


offense. However, the chances yielded no
results, as Ybarra came up big in goal for the
Panthers. One of his most dazzling saves of
the game came in the 47th minute on a south
City free kick from 25 yards out. Despite a
crisp shot weaving through a wall of bodies,
Ybarra was able to defend it.
Then in the 58th minute, Burlingame took
the lead for good when Gio Gomes came up
with a deflection in the penalty box and sent
it in for a score.
It was bad because we had the momentum
going, Flores said.
Burlingame took advantage of South
City's third yellow card in the 69th minute to
finish strong. The Panthers pressured with
back-to-back corner kicks in the 70th minute
and missed a golden chance by Shibli in the
71st minute only because of tremendous slide
tackle by Warriors keeper Noel Magallon.
We're an athletic team, Burlingame head
coach Dave Siracusa said. Were fast and
strong and were a fit group. And we dont
over-fitness either. We know we want to have

our legs at the end of February. We want

half there was some soccer too. I think we
kind of took them apart a little.
With the win, the Panthers take over sole
possession of first place in the PAL Bay
Division.
Today was for first place, but it was the
fourth game of the year, Siracusa said How
big was it? It was big enough.
South City defender Cesar Torres soldiered
through obvious pain throughout much of
the second half. Torres, who suffered a leg
injury during the football season, was one of
three key Warriors injuries along with
Vieyra and Cameron Amore who didnt
play their first game of the season together
until the Jan. 7 league opener.
South City has got some quick help from
emerging sophomore Gerardo Moran
though, who in just four game this season
has scored six goals. He is currently tied for
the team lead with Basulto.
[Basulto is] a hustler, Flores said. He's
always fighting for the ball. He does it all.

has battled injury the past two years, needs


a break. He could share time in left field with
Gregor Blanco.
Aoki, who sought to join a contender
where he could play regularly and liked the
Bay Area culture and geographical location
to his native Japan, gets a $4 million base
salary this year, and the Giants have a $5.5
million option for 2016 with a $700,000
buyout. The option can become mutual, and
the deal includes performance bonuses.
Aoki, 33, hit .285 with a home run, six
triples, 22 doubles and 43 RBIs over 132
games in his lone season with the Royals
after two in Milwaukee. He also stole 17
bases.
In addition, right-hander Yusmeiro Petit
agreed to a $2.1 million, one-year contract
that avoided salary arbitration. Petit earned
$845,000 last season.

Manager Bruce Bochy has said Petit a


talented starter and dominant long man
might remain in the bullpen to begin next
season because of his versatility. Petit set a
major league record last season by retiring
46 consecutive batters over eight appearances from July 22 to Aug. 28.

As reach one-year deals


with five players, avoid arbitration

Petit entered in the 12th inning of a 2-1,


18-inning win at Washington in Game 2 of
the NL Division Series and threw six
shutout innings, allowing one hit and striking out seven for the win.
He went 3-0 with a 1.42 ERA in four
appearances while pitching in his first
postseason. The Venezuelan star became the
first relief pitcher to win three games in one
postseason while going at least three
innings in each appearance and not allowing a run.

OAKLAND Right fielder Josh Reddick


and new third baseman Brett Lawrie are
among the players to reach agreements on
one-year contracts with the Oakland
Athletics and avoid arbitration.
Right-hander Ryan Cook, outfielders Sam
Fuld and Craig Gentry also agreed to oneyear contracts, the team said Friday.
In addition, infielder Andy Parrino cleared
waivers and was sent outright to Triple-A
Nashville. He will be a non-roster invitee to
spring training next month.
The As have four remaining players in
arbitration: pitchers Fernando Abad, newly
acquired Tyler Clippard and Jarrod Parker and
infielder Eric Sogard.

Knights. Hillsdale shot 8 for 20 from the floor in the first


half and were even better in the second, hitting on 12 of 20
attempts.
I think there are eight or nine guys (on the team) who can
give us 15 (points a game), Stevenson said. We strive to
get five to score 10.
The Knights dominated in every phase of the game. Their
2-3 zone prevented the Bearcats from getting much inside
and then when Hillsdale extended it, it shut down San
Mateos outside game as well. Paolo Maramba, who scored
23 points and pulled down 14 rebounds against Sequoia
Wednesday, disappeared against Hillsdale, making just one
basket and one rebound.
We knew coming into the game Hillsdale is very good
defensively, Lui said. We had to work to get shots against
their zone. In their zone, they key on certain players. They
did a great job accounting for where he (Maramba) was.
Schembri opened the game with a 3-pointer for Hillsdale,
which finished with eight 3s for the game. Maramba
answered with a jumper for his only points of the game
before the Knights went on a 9-0 run to take a 13-2 lead with
2:24 left in the opening quarter.

By Josh Dubow
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ALAMEDA Jack Del Rio lived Oakland Raiders history as a kid growing up in the East Bay, going to games at
the Coliseum and cheering on those great teams coached by
John Madden in the 1970s.
Del Rio is now coaching his favorite childhood team,
tasked with ending 12 years of dismal performances that
have left what once was the NFLs most successful team at
the bottom of the league.
As heartwarming a story as the local hero coming home
may be, thats not the sole reason why Del Rio took the job
or the Raiders picked Del Rio.
Yes its coming home, yes Im from this area and yes Im
a lifelong Raider, Del Rio said Friday at his introductory
news conference. Ive been a Raider fan all my life. My dad
took me and I sat in the stands way back when. And so I followed them in my heart the entire time. Thats not the main
reason I came back.
Del Rio said he was attracted to the Raiders because of the
organization that owner Mark Davis and general manager
Reggie McKenzie have put together and the fact that there
are key pieces to build the roster around, most notably quarterback Derek Carr.
There is plenty of building to be done. Del Rio becomes
Oaklands ninth head coach since the start of the 2003 season. The Raiders have the NFLs worst record in that span,
having failed to produce a single winning season or playoff
berth.
I think theres certainly no other way to trend from
where were sitting right now, Del Rio said. We have to
go up.
This is the second full-time coach hired since Mark Davis
and McKenzie took over the organization following the
death of longtime owner Al Davis in October 2011.

What Brianna has to do is do a little better job of getting


to the cup, Dozier said. She relies a little bit too much on
that jump shot. And thats what kind of hurts us. So, I think
if she mixes it up a little bit more, well get better as we go.
Shes a great player though.
The Mustangs took a 16-14 lead into halftime. Burlingame
took a brief 18-16 lead at the start of the second half on backto-back buckets from Christina Monisteri. But Deckman
responded with a sweet arcing rainbow 3-pointer midway
through the third quarter to give Cap the lead and spark a 142 run.
The Panthers didnt go quietly though, much in part to their
star player, center Claire Phillips. The senior dominated in
the post to tab a double-double. She had game-highs with 14
points and 19 rebounds.
But while Cap found some consistency from the field by
hitting 10-of-27 shots in the second half, Burlingame didnt.
The Panthers shot just 8 for 47 in the game, with only the
offensive rebounding prowess of Phillips keeping them in
it.
Case in point: Cap center Xenia Collins who paces the
Mustangs with 8.6 rebounds per game managed just seven
boards manning up with Phillips.
It was probably the most challenging game so far, honestly, since [Phillips is] my height, the 6-foot Collins said.
The rest of the league is shorter than my height, its easier
to box out. But, [Phillips] put up a good fight.
Despite Cap leading 37-26 midway through the fourth quarter, Burlingame rallied back to make a game of it. The
Mustangs committed 14 turnovers in the game, but 10 of
them came in the final quarter. Burlingame then went on a

Kevin Attard, who led the Bearcats with 10 points. But


Hillsdale responded with back-to-back 3s from Schwarz to
open up a 21-7 lead and eventually took a 28-16 lead into
halftime.
Attard, once again, scored the first bucket of the quarter
for San Mateo to open the second half, and once again
Hillsdale responded with a run this one a 6-0 spurt that
pushed the Knights lead to 34-18.
Attard finally broke the Bearcats dry spell with a threepoint play, but Schwarz responded with his third 3-pointer
of the night.
The Bearcats were still within striking distance late in the
third quarter, down 37-25 with just under two minutes to
play in the quarter when Ben Ujihara converted a layup on a
baseline drive.
But the Knights scored six points in 21 seconds to push
their lead to 18. Schwarz knocked down his fourth 3 of the
night and Hillsdale retained possession as there was an offthe-ball foul as Schwarz released his shot. The Knights took
the ball out of bounds and found Schembri, who rattled home
a 3-pointer of his own to give Hillsdale at 43-25 lead with
1:10 to play in the third.
San Mateos Ujihara and Ryan Kalugdan both hit a 3 to cut
the Hillsdale lead to 13, 47-34, with 5:30 to play in the
game, but the Knights had one last run in them, going on a
12-2 run that was punctuated by a 3-pointer from David
Lopez to give the Knights a 59-36 lead with just under two
minutes to play.
We just gave up too many points, Lui said.
six-point run, capped by a three-point play by Phillips with
2:18 left in the game to close the Mustangs lead to 37-32.
Phillips had a colorful explanation as to her approach as a
dominant rebounder.
Me and rebounding, I see it as a hamburger, Phillips said.
Im starving and I just want it and no matter whos in my
way, I just have to block them out and go get what I want.
But the Panthers simply could not super-size that bad boy
from the outside, missing several 3-point attempts down the
stretch, including a number of air balls.
We all had a little bit trouble shooting, Phillips said.
We can always build off that. Our team is always going to
support each other in that. Well just get it back and well get
em next time.
Dozier relied on all five of his sophomores late in the
game, which had something to do with the Mustangs not
being able to slow the tempo with a big lead, he said.
In the half-court offense, we fail to think sometimes,
Dozier said. Weve got a lot of sophomores filtering in and
out of the game. Theyve been trying to pick up the offense
over the last couple weeks. So, I think that hurt us tonight.
But I dont knock their effort at all. They tried to do the best
they could.
With the win, Cap remains tied for second place in the PAL
South Division with Menlo-Atherton, as the Bears crushed
Sequoia 67-41 Friday night. Hillsdale remains atop the division with the only unbeaten record in league play.
After the game, and prior to the boys finale as part of the
Mustangs first quad of the season, the 1995 Northern
California Capuchino boys basketball team was honored.
In attendance for the ceremony was former Cap head coach
Pete Harames along with 10 former players: Ray Azar, Mike
Brown, Ben Cohn, Devoir Funches, Brian Gomes, Mike
Kelly Gus Kiniris, Cassidy Sullivan, Even Tanaka, Joe
Vasquez and Matt Wilson. Those former players unable to
attend were Mike Adams, Mark Borghello, Dan Graf, Tony
Graf and John Tragas.

you were before, and I think we accomplished


that over the season.
Green Bay has added one more obstacle in the
postseason: Rodgers left calf injury that has
limited his mobility. But Rodgers showed in
last weeks divisional-round win over Dallas he
can manage just fine, throwing for 316 yards
and three touchdowns in the 26-21 victory.
Now All-Pro Rodgers gets his first shot at an
NFC title since winning at Chicago in January
2011. ASuper Bowl victory over Pittsburgh followed.
Its a different team, Rodgers said. I think
its less than 20 guys still here from that team.
Its only four years ago. But we have confidence
that we can win on the road.
Heres what else to watch for as Seattle tries to
become the first defending champion in a decade
to reach consecutive Super Bowls:

Sherman, another All-Pro, was bored when


Green Bay visited in the season opener.
Through the entire game, Rodgers refused to
throw at the cornerback, instead turning to the
other side of the field. Sherman took Rodgers
approach as a sign of respect. It also left him
frustrated. He described it as being a 12 on a 110 scale.
Everybodys like, Man, thats cool,
nobody threw to your side, Sherman said. But
if youre a player, you want to make plays in the
game, you feel you can help your team, you
want the ball coming your way more.
Sherman doesnt expect it the same this time.
Im not surprised either way, Sherman said.
But I expect them to execute their game plan,
whatever that may be. Not sure what theyre
going to do.

And thats not good for the Patriots.


He was pretty good when he came in and
hes even better now, New England coach Bill
Belichick said. Hes got a lot of strengths, no
weaknesses.
Sounds like Brady.
The 15-year veteran will play in his ninth
AFC championship game and fourth straight,
but the Patriots lost two of the previous three.
In last Saturdays 35-31 divisional win over
the Baltimore Ravens, Brady led the Patriots
back from two 14-point deficits. His three
touchdown passes gave him 46 for his career,
breaking Joe Montanas record of 45 in the
postseason.
Weve shown a lot of improvement and it
all leads to this moment, Brady said, so
weve got to be at our best.
Things to watch for as two of the NFLs
highest-scoring teams meet:

Calf watch
Rodgers injury is slowing him from scrambling before throwing, one of his strengths.
His right arm is just fine. Rodgers got hurt during the Dec. 21 game against Tampa Bay. He
still completed 74 percent of his passes in his
last three games, including the win over Dallas.
Coach Mike McCarthy has had Rodgers operating out of shotgun formations to help limit his
movement.
Perhaps just as importantly for the Packers
has been the solid work of the offensive line
much of the year. All-Pro fullback John Kuhn,

Attitude
Linebackers Clay Matthews and Julius
Peppers draw the headlines and make big plays
on the Packers defense. Lineman Mike Daniels
supplies the attitude. A mainstay up front,
Daniels demeanor sets a stern tone on game
day.
Theyll need Daniels and fellow lineman
Letroy Guion to slow down bullish running
back Marshawn Lynch just enough to allow
linebackers Matthews and Sam Barrington, and
safety Morgan Burnett to try to finish off tackles up the middle. Daniels has 14 tackles and
two sacks over his last four games.

Catching on
When they drop back, Luck and Brady have
plenty of reliable receivers to choose from.
Luck connected with eight against Denver.
And one who didnt catch a pass, Reggie
Wayne, needs 36 yards receiving to move past
Cliff Branch for No. 3 in NFL postseason history.
One of the things that I believe has been a
reason for our success is the different playmakers that we have and the way that the ball
is being spread around, Colts tight end

THE DAILY JOURNAL


Dwayne Allen said.
Brady completed at least four passes to six
different receivers against Baltimore, including one touchdown each to Rob Gronkowski,
Danny Amendola and Brandon LaFell, who
caught a winning 23-yarder with just over five
minutes left.

Patriots rushing
New England used a powerful ground attack
in its last two games against Indianapolis.
LeGarrette Blount ran for 166 yards and four
touchdowns in a 43-22 divisional win last
year, and Jonas Gray rushed for 201 yards and
four touchdowns in a 42-20 win Nov. 16. But
the Patriots rushed only 13 times for 14 yards
against the Ravens, and three of them were
kneel-downs by Brady in the last two minutes.
We chose not to run the ball more than anything else, offensive coordinator Josh
McDaniels said. It wasnt like we ran it 20
times and had 35 yards.

Boom town
The last time the teams met, Colts RB
Daniel Boom Herron played a season-low
one snap. He got his first career start in the
next game and has become a dual threat.
After rushing for just 74 yards and catching
two passes in the first 10 games, hes had
396 yards rushing and 37 receptions. In his
two playoff games, hes run for 119 yards
and two touchdowns and caught 18 of 19
passes thrown his way.
I love it, he said of his postseason performances. Thats what youre here for and
thats what Ive dreamed about since Ive
been playing football.

Solutions to
resolutions
By Mari Andreatta

Soon enough, hes employing professional


best man Jimmy Callahan (Hart) and a ragtag team of groomsmen, each of whom is
an ostensibly yuk-worthy type: the Fat
Guy (played by Jorge Garcia of Lost
fame), the Asian (Aaron Takahashi), the
Redneck, the Beefcake (with a stutter
even funnier!), etc., etc.
As Doug and his homies-for-hire get
acquainted, were treated to a variety of
gags, including a boy getting hit in the gut
with a baseball and a man breaking his own
arm for show, as well as jokes about rape,
child molestation and testicular deformities. Politically incorrect, lowest-com-

his year, I noticed my New Years


resolutions havent changed in a
while. Sure, a few of the items on
my list have been switched out for other
things, but for the most part, I want the
same things every year to remember to
floss every day, to make my bed in the
morning, to read more
books (that arent
assigned by teachers), to
spend more time outdoors, to get my daily
exercise, etc. A new year
brings a new me mindset to many people, and
to help with that transformation, we make New
Years resolutions. But what happens to
last years resolutions? Do we leave them
in 2014 or carry them with us into the new
year? Do we get a report card on how we
did? Are we failures if we cant find the
resolve to fix these things? If were going
to have the same resolutions as last year
then why do we even bother?
Statistics show that about 40 percent of
Americans make New Years resolutions,
but only 8 percent follow through with
them. I think one problem might be that
our resolutions are too broad. People say
they want to lose weight, travel more,
stress less, quit smoking and eat healthier,
but how can you gauge your progress (without taking extensive notes)? Weekly, or
even daily, resolutions sound like a much
better idea to me. If our resolutions are too
broad and unspecific, we will either forget
about them and take them less seriously
because well tell ourselves we have all
year to fulfill them, or end up feeling disappointed because nothing will happen
overnight and we cant see the results
immediately. Resolutions are typically
promises of self-improvement, so weekly
or daily resolutions would be easier to
remember and harder to postpone. For
example, instead of promising to eat
healthier for the entire year, you could
promise to only eat fruit as a snack this
week or say no to dessert after dinner
tonight. A year-long resolution seems nearly impossible to execute perfectly and making goals into bite-size chunks might be

Been there, done that


in the Wedding Ringer
By Jon Frosch
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES The first version of the


script for The Wedding Ringer, a new
comedy about a friendless schlub who rents
a best man for his big day, was written back
in 2002 a fact that partly accounts for
the whiff of stale leftovers that hangs over
the movie from start to finish.
Several films have indeed been there,
done that or variations of that in the
12 years since, including Bridesmaids
and The Hangover, which all but redefined the pre-marriage debauchery subgenre.
But a certain derivative, deja-vu quality

isnt the only sin this lazy, numbingly routine, very occasionally amusing comedy
commits. An odd-couple bromance spiked
with gross-out humor of a mostly unimaginative sort, The Wedding Ringer, starring
Kevin Hart, largely fails to accomplish its
most basic mission: making us laugh.
Directed by Jeremy Garelick from a
screenplay he wrote with Jay Lavender,
The Wedding Ringer opens with Doug
(Josh Gad) nervously cold calling potential
best men in preparation for his upcoming
nuptials to Gretchen (The Big Bang
Theorys Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting). Alas,
Doug is soft-spoken and overweight,
which, in testosterone-drunk comedies like
this one, means that he has no friends.

Onstage, onscreen: Bradley Cooper sets career sights high


By Jocelyn Noveck
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK On a recent Saturday


afternoon, Bradley Cooper took his curtain call at Broadways Booth Theater,
where hes starring in The Elephant
Man. He then had to race to a meeting,
conduct an interview for this article, and
find time to eat and nap before taking the
stage again for his 8 p.m. show.
Theres definitely a lot going on for
Cooper, who turned 40 earlier this month.

Along
with
eight
Broadway performances
a week, hes busy promoting one of his
biggest movies to date,
as both actor and producer: Clint Eastwoods
American Sniper, in
which Cooper transBradley Cooper forms himself to
much critical acclaim
into late Navy SEAL marksman Chris
Kyle, a real-life personality whom he

looks and sounds nothing like.


Theres even a report (way premature,
the actor says) that he plans to make his
feature directorial debut soon. Is it an
exaggeration to say that all in all, this is
a pretty big career moment for Cooper?
He responds modestly. I think the fact
that I had a chance to play Chris Kyle and
Joseph Merrick (subject of The Elephant
Man) in the same year is huge for me, he
says. Absolutely.
Its certainly a season for cinematic portrayals of real-life characters: Martin

Luther King Jr in Selma and physicist


Stephen Hawking in The Theory of
Everything, to name just a few. Cooper,
who already has two Oscar nominations to
his name (for Silver Linings Playbook
and American Hustle) hadnt portrayed a
real person before and says the responsibility he felt in playing Kyle, who died in
2013 with the legacy of being the most
lethal sniper in U.S. military history, was
massive.

COOPER
Continued from page 17
Theres a family thats still alive
and children that are still alive,
Cooper says. So this film, if we get
it right, it will matter to them forever. For the rest of their lives and their
childrens lives, potentially. So that
was a huge responsibility. (There
was also the comment Kyles father
reportedly made to Eastwood:
Disrespect my son and Ill unleash
hell on you.)
Coopers response to the challenge, he says, was to put a tremendous amount of pressure on myself.
For starters, that meant gain 40
pounds and literally learn exactly
how he spoke.
He tries to describe the days spent
prepping for the film: Wake up 5
a.m., put on my headphones right
away, listen to his voice right away,
just to get it in my system, he
recounts. Ride my motorcycle to the

gym, where I have big blowup photos


of him.
Two and a half hours of heavy lifting would follow, staring at those
photos and listening to Kyles
playlist, given to him by the
snipers widow, Taya. Then two hours
at home with a dialectician. Back to
the gym for two more hours, then
back home for more dialect work,
until 8 p.m. I would do that five days
a week, he says. Yeah, it was
intense.
Cooper also spent hours listening
to every interview Kyle had ever
done. Unfortunately, he had no personal memories to go on, only a brief
phone conversation. Kyle was shot
and killed at a shooting range in
February 2013, by a former Marine he
was trying to help.
And so the research was extensive.
What we really cared about was first
of all the family believing that it was
Chris up there, Cooper says. They
were very, very positive in that direction. And that meant the world to
me.

Taya Kyle is quick to confirm her


approval. I really dont know how
he did it as well as he did, she says.
So many of Chris friends said its
almost eerie watching it. Im eternally grateful. He got the mannerisms
and the way he moved and breathed,
all those things.
The actors recent success doesnt
surprise the dean of his former acting
school; That would be James Lipton,
host of Bravos Inside the Actors
Studio, who auditioned Cooper when
he was a student at Georgetown.
The scene he did wasnt great, but I
had a very strong feeling about him,
Lipton says. By the time Coop, as
hes called, did his masters thesis
scenes from The Elephant Man, as
it happens Lipton says he
thought: Hes going to be a very
important actor.
Coopers Broadway run ends Feb.
22, and he hopes to bring the show to
London this summer. As for film,
whatevers next, he doesnt think
itll be easy to top American
Sniper.

THE DAILY JOURNAL

RINGER
Continued from page 17
mon-denominator comedy and body horror humor can be sublime when the timing is sharp and the staging inspired. But
here, almost everything feels anemic. Garelick and Lavender
consistently flirt with outrageousness without ever going all
the way. Even a bachelor party set piece in which the term
service dog is given stomach-turning new meaning (peanut
butter lovers, be warned) feels half-hearted and half-thoughtout; you giggle because of the situations bullying perversity, not because the execution is actually funny.
Slightly more amusing are some of the interactions
between Doug and his future in-laws, thanks in large part to
the skill of good actors slumming for a paycheck: Ken
Howard as Gretchens macho dad, Mimi Rogers as her tightly
wound mom, Olivia Thirlby as her too-cool-for-school
younger sister and a sadly underused Cloris Leachman as her
loopy grandma. If the movie has a high point, its surely the
family dinner sequence that devolves into total chaos, culminating in Granny going up in flames. Moments like that one,
as well as another that finds Doug and Jimmy hitting the
dance floor at a wedding breaking out moves ranging from
hip hop to disco to Charleston with incongruous flair
momentarily breathe some much-needed comic life into The
Wedding Ringer.
Too bad its not enough for Doug and Jimmy to have fun;
theyre forced to learn something in the process, too, as suggested by the perfunctory heart-to-hearts the two have in the
films third act, acoustic guitars strumming in the background.

easier to digest.
As I mentioned, my resolutions havent changed since I
entered high school. Ill admit that eating healthy is
always one of mine, but that seems to be on everyones
list because theres always room for improvement. Things
like healthy eating, daily exercise and a clean bedroom
arent New Years resolutions though those are things
we want to do for the rest of our lives. The underlying
premise behind a New Years resolution is that were doing
something wrong or need to do something different or better. Maybe thats the biggest issue of all we are focused
on what were not instead of what we are. The word resolution itself is defined as the act of finding an answer to a
problem. Problem sounds too negative to me! Of course
you can want to make changes and improvements to your
life, but are they worthy of the term resolution? Why
cant they just be called tweaks or goals? As you think
about 2015, make sure to celebrate who and what you are.
Yes, you may want to make some minor adjustments, but
doing (or not doing) them will not define you or your year.
Thats my new New Years resolution: to not have any; to
be who and what I am and to work on being that. Im
gonna nail this one!

LOS ANGELES Bill Cosbys attorney said Friday that


the comedian was not at the Playboy Mansion on the night
a model accuses him of drugging and sexually abusing her.
Cosby was in New York on the night
that model Chloe Goins claims the comedian drugged and accosted her in a bedroom of the mansion, attorney Martin D.
Singer wrote in a statement.
Singer said he would present evidence
to authorities detailing Cosbys whereabouts before, during and after the
Bill Cosby
Playboy Mansion event.
Goins met with Los Angeles police detectives on
Wednesday and her attorney said the incident took place during an event in August 2008. While many of the abuse
claims leveled against Cosby fall outside civil and criminal
statutes of limitations, Goins allegations may fall within
the time period that Cosby could be charged.
Goins attorney Spencer Kuvin said Wednesday that the
alleged abuse occurred during an event called Midsummers
Night Dream Party on Aug. 9, 2008, at the mansion. Goins
does not know what happened while she was blacked out but
Kuvin has said she awoke to find herself naked and Cosby
over her.
Mr. Cosby was in New York on that date, Singer wrote.
We will be providing documentary evidence to the appropriate authorities which conclusively establishes Mr.
Cosbys whereabouts on August 9th and for the preceding
and succeeding days.

HILL
Continued from page 1
trust in this district, Hill said. Some
parents feel so estranged from this
board that in order to get your attention they felt they had to place an
advertisement in the San Mateo Daily
Journal. Others hired a community
relations firm to try to reach you.
The Mills Vikings Parent Group ran
an ad calling for the district to find a
new location for the charter school,
Design Tech High School. The district
has been grappling with finding a new
location for it next school year, as it is
temporarily co-locating with Mills
High School in Millbrae. By law, the
district needs to provide facilities the
charter with facilities by Feb. 1. The
San Mateo Adult School was worried,
and rallied, when d.tech asked to be
placed at the Adult Schools SMART
Center location in San Mateo. The district is also looking to house its alternative high school, Peninsula High
School, which is located on the site of
the aging former Crestmoor High
School in San Bruno, but has run into
trouble as there are few facilities on the
Peninsula fit for a public high school.
The district is looking for new facilities for its district office as well.
Trustee Linda Lees Dwyer said that
elected representatives should work
together to solve problems like the
d.tech location, and would appreciate
Hills assistance, as the district works
to find the best location for the charter
school.
We all know that the current location is less than ideal and if everyone
who believes the charter school needs
a new location works on finding a new
location, we all benefit and in particular the students at Mills and d.tech
benefit, she said.
Hill noted that dozens of interested
citizens came to the Dec. 11 meeting
to engage the board in a discussion
about the future of the pool at
Burlingame High School, which is
shared by the district and city and
closed for the month of January. The
district also recently threatened litigation against the city of Burlingame in
relation to the city not responding to
the districts request for additional
space in the 50-meter Olympic size
pool for its teams and more payments
from the city for its usage.
The board did not place the pool on
the meeting agenda, Hill said. This
move allowed trustees to posture at

length on the issue during their comment session and avoid a public discussion because the topic was not on
the agenda. Instead of asking yourselves what is it about the way we do
business that would cause the parents
of our students to do such things?
instead of engaging the parents in a
dialogue, your response has been
shameful: you deride them for their
efforts, rant about what you claim are
false allegations and you point the finger of blame at the very people you are
obligated to represent and serve.
He noted the board demonstrated its
contempt for the public and its complete lack of interest in hearing what
the community has to say, when at the
Dec. 11 meeting, it determined that it
would vote on a matter first and take
public comment after the vote. He
added it may have been a violation of
the Brown Act, Californias open
meeting law.
The board issued a strong reaction to
Hills comments, stating that his
speech contained accusations based on
misinformation that only hinders the
public process.
From erroneously asserting that
members of the board do not read letters from constituents, to board members not allowing public comment,
Sen. Hill made a number of unsubstantiated claims directed at the SMUHSD
board, said board President Marc
Friedman in a prepared statement
Friday. The SMUHSD board continues
to tirelessly move forward in finding
d.tech a home of its own. The boards
intent was not to offend any member of
the public who attended the Dec. 11
board meeting. This public matter has
regrettably caused much frustration.
Sen. Hills comments last night do little to diminish what has been a very
difficult situation for everyone
involved including students.
Millbrae Councilman Wayne Lee and
Millbrae Vice Mayor Reuben Holober
came to the Thursday night meeting as

well and asked the board to try to


resolve the issues with finding a new
location for d.tech.
I see youre trying to make
progress, Lee said. I do have respect
for elected officials its not easy.
Some things the public doesnt have
total grasp of, but were asking you to
know the community. Some of you
have expressed you dont have to
know the community. The point is
when I go overseas and Mills comes up
and I ask, why are you asking about
Mills 4, 000 miles away? Because
there is a great investment in the city
of Millbrae and Mills High School.
Hill went on to state that he was
appalled when he read one trustees
recent communication to a concerned
parent where he wrote that he has an
extreme negative reaction when I see
children and foreign nationals/immigrants unfamiliar with our system so
obviously being manipulated and used
as I witnessed at the December board
meeting.
Board members want to stress board
members serve as board members for
one reason to ensure the best educational experience for all the communitys high school students.
Wanting an education that will help
prepare our teens for future success is a
common interest that we can all agree
on, Friedman said. A common interest that will allow all of us to move
forward in working collaboratively
together to provide that all students
have a school they can call their own.
Recently, the district also dealt with
an upset San Bruno Relay for Life at
Capuchino High School when the district changed its 24-hour event to a 12hour one because of a new policy of
closing campuses after midnight.
At the same meeting, the district
interviewed search firms that will work
to help find a new superintendent, as
Superintendent Scott Laurence will be
leaving the district at the end of the
school year. The district selected
Leadership Associates after interviewing it and other firms such as Dave
Long & Associates, Education
Leadership Services, Hazard, Young,
Attea & Associates, McPherson &
Jacobson, L.L.C., The Cosca Group
and Ray and Associates, Inc.
The district will hold a special meeting on the budget and financing 5:30
p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 27 at the Adult
School, 789 E. Poplar Ave. in San

The Petition for Probate requests that

mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date

Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of
mailing or personal delivery to you of a
notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your
rights as a creditor. You may want to
consult with an attorney knowledgeable
in California law. You may examine the
file kept by the court. If you are a person

Reverse Mortgage Financial Assessment to begin March 2015


The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has issued a nancial assessment for
reverse mortgage borrowers that will take effect
March 2, 2015
HUD writes in explaining the purpose of nancial
assessment, The mortgagee must evaluate the
mortgagors willingness and capacity to timely meet
his or her nancial obligations and to comply with the
mortgage requirements. The mortgage requirements
include paying property taxes, homeowners insurance
and keeping up home maintenance.
HUD states, In conducting this nancial
assessment, mortgagees must take into consideration that some mortgagors seek a HECM due
to nancial difculties, which may be reected
in the mortgagors credit report and/or property
charge payment history. The mortgagee must also
consider to what extent the proceeds of the HECM

could provide a solution to any such nancial difculties. For borrowers who do not demonstrate
their willingness to meet their loan obligations, life
expectancy set-asides will be required.
The mortgagee letter also species documents that
must be collected and submitted to all borrowers. The
documentation has been updated to include Financial
Assessment Documentation including, credit history,
income verication, asset verication, property charge
verication, residual income analysis, documentation
of extenuating circumstances or compensating factors
and calculations for life expectancy and residual
income shortfall set-asides.
If you have a question about qualifying for a reverse
mortgage today, or how the nancial assessment will
impact your situation, contact us today.

A reverse mortgage is a loan that enable


homeowners 62 or older to borrow against the
equity in their home without having to give up
title, or take on a monthly mortgage payment.
The money received can be used for any purpose.
The loan amount depends on the borrowers age,
current interest rates, and the value of the home.
Borrower must maintain property as primary
residence and remain current on property taxes
and homeowners insurance. A reverse mortgage
does not have to be repaid until the borrower
sells or moves out of the home permanently,
and the repayment amount cannot exceed the
value of the home. After the loan is repaid any
remaining equity is distributed to the borrower or
the borrowers estate.
