# YLEM Forum: Sex, Time and Power Wed May 12 7:30 PM FREE
 McBean Theater, The Exploratorium.edu 3601 Lyon St.,   free,  
In Sex, Time and Power, Leonard Shlain presents yet another startling
hypothesis at the YLEM Forum. Previously he lectured at it about his
other daring books, Art and Physics and The Alphabet versus the
Goddess. An Associate Professor of Surgery at UCSF, he brings his
knowledge of physiology into play in this book, as well as his
voracious appetite for research.
Big-brained Homo sapiens suddenly emerged some 150,000 years ago, he
argues, because of profound alterations in female sexuality.
Long ago, due to the narrowness of her bipedal pelvis and the
increasing size of her infants’ heads, the human female began to
experience high childbirth death rates, precipitating a crisis for the
species. Natural selection adapted her to this unique environmental
stress by drastically reconfiguring her hormonal reproductive cycle.
Her estrus disappeared and menses mysteriously entrained with the
periodicity of the moon. Women formulated the concept of a month, which
in turn allowed them to make the connection between sex and pregnancy.
Upon learning the majestic secret of time these ancestral females then
gained the power to refuse sex when they were ovulating. Men were
forced to confront women who possessed a mind of their own.
Women taught men about time and the men used this knowledge to become
the planet’s most fearsome predator. Unfortunately, they also
discovered that they were mortal. Men, then invented religions to
soften the certainty of death. Subsequently, they belatedly grasped the
function of sex. The possibility of achieving a kind of immortality
through heirs drove men to construct patriarchal cultures whose purpose
was to control women’s reproductive choices. Come hear how these
archaic insights altered all subsequent human cultures.
Dr. Shlain lectures widely both here and in Europe. He has been a
keynote speaker for such diverse groups as the Smithsonian, Harvard
University, Salk Institute, Phillips collection, Los Alamos National
Laboratory, NASA Johnson Space Center, and the European Union’s
Ministers of Culture. He has been interviewed on both PBS and NPR. His
lectures are as lively as his writing!

# Thu, May 13 4:00 pm Raise Your Voice to Hold Avon Accountable!
SF General Hospital Meet at the corner of Potrero Ave. & 22nd St.
Corporate conscience belongs in a company's products, not just in its marketing. Major cosmetics company, Avon, markets itself as a leader in the fight against breast cancer while selling products that contain harmful chemicals. Avon will be in town for the opening of the Avon Foundation Comprehensive Breast Center at San Francisco General Hospital. Come march, hold signs, and be a presence with Breast Cancer Action as we tell Avon that if they really care about breast cancer they need to remove the harmful chemicals from their products. 
 Help us send the message loud and clear that Avon should put people's health before profit by: - Removing parabens - a chemical preservative that may be linked to breast cancer - from its products, - Reformulating all of its products for U.S. and overseas markets according to the safety standards set by the European Union, which prohibit the use of certain carcinogens, mutagens, and reproductive toxins in cosmetics beginning in September of 2004, - Fully disclosing all product ingredients, and - Being transparent and open about how much money they raise for breast cancer and where and how the money is spent. 
 Everyone is welcome! 
 To learn more about cosmetics, chemicals, and breast cancer go to: http://www.ThinkBeforeYouPink.org

# The Forum at Grace Cathedral Presents: Matt Gonzalez: Passionate Politico
 Why is Matt Gonzalez leaving politics at the peak of his political career?   He made a strong name for himself last year when he ran for mayor and almost beat democratic contender Gavin Newsom in a tight race, 48% to 52%.  For many who had never fully endorsed a candidate, Matt Gonzalez became their political hero.  A progressive and Green party member that represented many San Franciscans who sometimes feel their voice is not heard at the top.   Matt will share his future plans, his insight on what's happening in politics locally and nationally and what being a Green party member means in the upcoming presidential election. 
 Guest: Matt Gonzalez, San Francisco Board Supervisor President & former mayoral candidate

time for we DASW folk to activate our networks and put our energy into
getting folks in the streets.

find new ones, and there's also "infrastrcture council" meetings happening
every monday night at 7pm between now and then.  tonight it's at humanist
