# Listen: The Sonic Series Wed July 14 7pm incl price of admission 
 Why can you tell a trumpet from a flute, or one guitar from another
guitar, even when they are playing the same tune? Every musical
instrument has a unique personality. Whether it's a violin, a steel
pan or a series of wineglasses played with wet fingers, you
recognize each instrument by its individual sound quality.
Experimental musical instrument designer Bart Hopkin and an
acclaimed steel pan performer and tuner will share how they listen
and shape the personality and sound quality of the musical
instruments they play and make.

# Art and the Earth - YLEM Forum Wed July 14 7:30 PM FREE 
Since ancient China, Earth’s geology has inspired artists and
challenged scientists. The view of Earth from space is a new landscape,
and technologies like computer animation aid the understanding of our
world. Even traditional landscape photography is sometimes enhanced by
high-end digital cameras. Come see what both artists and geologists are
creating at "Art and the Earth."         Geologic Maps
Beautiful geologic maps will be displayed during "Art and the Earth,"
and Jonathan Boxerman will explain the amazing Earth structures these
maps show. Boxerman is a photographer and geologist currently studying
with Dr. Ray Pestrong at San Francisco State University. Together, they
are investigating Tafoni weathering processes along the coast of
Northern California. He will bring samples of this strange rock
formation, also known as “lattice rock.” Trudy Myrrh Reagan, artist
daughter of geologist Philip B. King, will show how they have
influenced her art.              The Magic Planet
We will see Earth animation inside a transparent sphere! Developed by
the Silicon Valley firm Global Imagination, the Magic Planet’s
spherical displays of the Earth grab people's attention and spark their
imagination. The displays make it easy for people to intuitively
understand dynamic global systems - whether it's climate, the biosphere
or geologic history. The displays also help tell stories about planets
in a compelling way, helping viewers learn new facts about the Earth
while having fun.
“Pioneering Digital Landscape Photography” with Stephen Johnson
Since 1989, Stephen Johnson's artwork has explored computers as new
photographic and design tools. He is currently finishing work on a
major new endeavor, “With a New Eye: The Digital National Parks
Project,” using digital sensors to make his photographs rather than
film. In his work, Johnson brings an almost Japanese sensibility to his
choice of subjects, making viewers see familiar terrain in a fresh way.
In 1999, Folio: magazine declared a photo essay of Johnson's digital
photographs published in the December, 1997 issue of Life magazine to
be one of the “Top 15 Critical Events in Magazine Publishing in the
Twentieth Century.” Stephen Johnson was named as a 2003 inductee into
the Photoshop Hall of Fame, recognized for his achievements in art. His
artwork is a part of many permanent collections, including the Getty
Museum.      squid 3501 Lyon St

# The 9-11 Standdown. Where was our air defense? 3 Issues Analyzed
On September 11, 2001 America saw an unprecedented breakdown of its 
Standard Operating Procedures for air defense. Although 4 different 
planes were highjacked for over an hour and a half, not one plane was 
intercepted in an air defense failure other governments have described 
as Impossible to Believe. Meanwhile, General Ralph Eberhard, the head 
of NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) on 9-11, who 
oversaw the air defense failure, was promoted soon afterward.
 On JULY 16th at FORREST BOOKS in SF at 7:00 3 issues will be anyalyzed, 
using clips from the 9-11 hearings:
1. BOX CUTTERS OR GUNS? The evidence and how it was treated.
2. HIGHJACKING NOTIFICATIONS: Were they delayed or in real time?

Dare and Harry Haller. The Official Tour takes you places we

Willy’s policy of letting people walk through). The Unofficial Tour will

secret passages, and more surprises. Both tours are FREE, and should
take about an hour and a half to two hours total. Then, we’ll proceed to
the House of Shields, a popular San Francisco bar and restaurant since
1908, and one of Sunny Jim Rolph’s favorite hangouts, for a drink. Wear
comfortable walking shoes, and dress for the weather.
 Meet in San Francisco City Hall, at the Info Booth in the lobby

NYC AUG 29-SEPT 2  Bay Area Mobilizing to RNC Meeting
Sunday, July 18, Noon New College of California, 777 Valencia, @18th St 
 EMPIRE OR DEMOCRACY? One No and a Million Yeses
 Hundreds of people from the Bay Area will join hundreds of
thousands in the streets of NYC to confront the Bush administration and make
history August 29 to September 3. Tuesday August 31st will be the day of
mass nonviolent civil disobedience and direct action. Join us in NYC if you can!
   ONE NO: EMPIRE is the framework for global control (accelerated, but not
begun by the Bush Administration), combining US military dominance,
corporate globalization, and domestic policies that promote fear, attacks on
immigrants, and racial scapegoating, as well as undermine  civil liberties,
while transferring the world1s wealth from the majority  of the people in
the world to big corporations and a rich minority.
   A MILLION YESES: REAL DEMOCRACY means direct decision-making in which people
participate and have direct control over the decisions and resources that
matter in our lives: schools, hospitals, neighborhoods, workplaces,
communities, and the state of the world we hand off to future generations.
Meaningful democracy goes beyond voting to include all the directly
democratic ways we assert our power; involvement in social movements,
community organizations, and alternative institutions-- all are essential no
matter who is elected. Direct democracy is voting with your feet, your
hands, your voice and your imagination every day of the year.
   Also coming up: Actions on November 3 - The Day After: because the crisis
did not start with Bush and won1t end with Kerry. This will be a day for
popular outrage and widespread non-cooperation if Bush is elected and/or if
there is overt election fraud again. If Bush is defeated it will be a time
for celebration, and no matter who wins, we will go beyond voting to build
pro-democracy movements in the heart of the empire which will uproot the
system behind both Bush and Kerry and build a better world.
   Direct Action to Stop the War

Stand-up comedian Bill Santiago is a young, up-and-coming entertainer 
whose high-octane performances are garnering raves from audiences and 
critics across the country. His routines draw on his Puerto Rican 
roots but also cross ethnic boundaries with political comedy that's 
smart, energetic and bold. It's non-derisive, equal opportunity 
humor, says Santiago. His parodies of Latino life successfully bridge 
the cultural divide. REGISTER TO VOTE ONLINE!

# Thu Aug 19 Who Owns Water?  Protecting the World's Water 
from Corporate Takeover / water
Fortune magazine has predicted that "water is the oil of the 21 
century," and now corporations are rushing to invest in the new 
get-rich economy of water. Giant water, energy, food, and shipping 
companies have plans to buy water rights, privatize publicly-owned 
water systems, promote bottled water, and sell "bulk" water by 
transporting it from water rich areas to thirsty markets. As the 
world's water becomes scarcer and corporations seek to exploit this 
scarcity for profit, people around the world are losing ownership and 
control of water resources on which they depend. But water is a human 
right; to the extent one has the right to live, one has the right to 
 Join us for a discussion with Juliette Beck and John Gibler of Public 
Citizen's Water for All Campaign. Public Citizen's Water for All 
Campaign is dedicated to protecting water as a common resource, 
stopping water privatization and bulk water sales, and defending 
access to clean and affordable water around the world. Come hear how 
people in California and around the world - from Stockton and Gualala

right to water, and find out how you can help. 7 pm - 9 pm
