Wipers on, Lights on - New Law
 Effective July 1 – in inclement weather (rain, snow, fog), when you activate your windshield wipers your headlamps must also be on. Daytime running lamps are not headlamps.  
It is also illegal in CA to drive with just running lights, without headlights.
But it is legal to drive naked in CA. There was a brief law requiring shoes, but open toed sandals jammed in pedals, so that law was revoked.

How to Get Rid of a Cold in 2 Easy Steps

by Frederic Patenaude

 Everyone wants to know what's the best way to get rid of a cold, and it seems everybody has her own remedy for it. In this article, you will learn how to eliminate a nasty cold the PURE HEALTH way, which is Nature's Way.

 I probably won't be very popular for saying this, but the truth is that “there is no cure for the common cold.” That's right. Even modern medicine is aware of this.

 All of the remedies sold, at the drugstore or from your health food store, only alleviate the symptoms of a problem that shouldn't be stopped in the first place!

Let Your Body Heal

 Here's a little known truth: all attempts to “cure” the common cold are completely futile, since the cold isn't something that should be fought or stopped in the first place. The common cold is a *symptom* that the body is undergoing a healing crisis. The body is trying to get well!

 Whether you can “catch” a cold is another subject of controversy, but without even going into that, only the body's own powers are able to take this healing crisis to a favorable conclusion.

 The common cold is believed to be viral in nature, and there is no treatment that directly fights the virus. In fact, there are hundreds of those viruses, with new ones being discovered all the time!

 The more you interfere in the process, either by taking a drug or making some sort of herbal concoction, the more you add on to the body's stress of dealing with the situation. You might be able to get rid of the symptoms, but the root problem is still there. Is that what you want?

 Instead, get rid of a cold the Pure Health Way, in 2 easy steps:

Sleep It Off

 The main problem people have when they get a cold is that it interferes with their already busy life. How are you supposed to work if you feel like crap? So you take drugs or even just herbal medicines to alleviate the symptoms, and you continue working like crazing, staying up late, going out, eating out, and *never giving your body the chance to heal.*

 When you get a cold, you should do this opposite. Think to yourself, “Great! A cold! That's my opportunity to catch up on the rest I desperately need, and my chance to let my body heal itself!”

 What you'll need to do is start spending long hours in bed. Rest as much as possible. Cancel those appointments that are not urgent, those nights out, and other activities. Stop your exercise program for a few days, and rest as much as possible.

 If that's not possible, at least take it really easy, and go to bed super-early. Give your body a chance to heal and it will do an amazing job at it, I promise.

Eat Properly

 95% of people I've met still think that there's some kind of food they should eat that could “increase their immunity” or “boost their metabolism” and help them “fight” the cold better.

 They still haven't realized that *the common cold isn't something that should be fought or stopped!*

 Here is however a few recommendations that will definitely help you recover from a cold in the shortest time possible.

 - Eat only fruits and vegetables. Those are the easiest foods to digest. Avoid protein foods or fat, or starch.
 - Drink plenty of warm water.
 - Eat a very simple diet. Smoothies, fresh juices, raw fruits in vegetables. No cooked foods except at the most, steamed vegetables.
 - Eat according to hunger and if not hungry skip a few meals. There's no harm and only good in doing that.

 Eating a simple raw food diet (such as the one I described in my book “The Raw Secrets) when you have a cold will help you recover in the shortest time possible, without doing any harm to the body. A short fast is also advisable (2-3 days max).

 Combine that with plenty of rest, and you'll have a winning formula to getting rid of that nasty cold.

 By learning proper nutrition habits, you'll also make sure that you stay healthy all the time and never have to go through that again!

artists are encouraged to submit small format multiples-whether that

parameters of media and conceptual strategies by doing what they do  
best-subverting and manipulating a theme to their own ends. We  
encourage you to participate in the fun! From December 2nd through  
the 4th, hundreds of small format editions will be on view as the  
gallery is transformed into a bazaar-like bargain-hunter's paradise.

# "Stop Global Warming" Actions on December 3
 Saturday, December 3, 2005  more on this date 
 Climate Crisis Coalition Organizing Nationwide 

"Stop Global Warming" Actions on December 3 

Climate Crisis, USA Join the World!   today announced that it is 
organizing actions across the United States on and 
around December 3 to demand that the U.S. government 
support action that is commensurate with the urgency of 
the deepening climate crisis. 

"Scores of Stop Global Warming local actions will be 
happening during the Nov. 28-Dec. 9 time period when 
the huge, United Nations Climate Conference in Montreal 
takes place," said Ted Glick, spokesperson for the 
group. "We will be acting in concert with hundreds of 
thousands of people in at least 28 countries around 
the world who are making December 3rd an 
International Day of Action to Stop Global Warming." 

The Climate Crisis group is demanding that the U.S. 
government join the world by ratifying the Kyoto 

Climate Crisis also demands that the federal government 
withdraw its annual $25 billion in subsidies for coal 
and oil and create equivalent subsidies for clean, 
safe, non-nuclear energy alternatives; that it 
dramatically strengthen energy conservation and fuel 
efficiency standards; that it plan for a just 
transition for workers, Indigenous communities and 
others affected by a change to clean energy; and that 
it actively defend the world's forests and support 
community-run tree planting campaigns. 

States where local actions will be taking place 
include: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, 
Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Illinois, 
Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, 
Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, 
Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Utah and 

In D.C. on December 3, scores of hybrid vehicles 
organized by the Chesapeake Climate Action Network will 
circle the White House. In New Orleans the Alliance for 
Affordable Energy will be holding a Stop Global Warming 
event in the French Quarter. In Los Angeles on December 
2, the Labor/Community Strategy Center will be doing an 
action calling for an expansion of the city's bus fleet 
to provide badly-needed public transportation which 
will also cut down on car-producing greenhouse gases. 
And in New York, also on December 2, a coalition of 
groups will rally in Foley Square across from the 
Federal Building calling for the federal government to 
stop its obstructionist efforts and instead act to 
address this urgent crisis. 

In many localities, following the lead of organizers of 
a massive march on December 3 in Montreal, participants 
in the actions will try to hold their breath for 60 
seconds. USA Join the World! coordinator Glick 
explained that, 'Doing so reminds us all how important 
clean air is to all living things. It reminds us of the 
urgency of our work. It is a metaphor for what people 
on some Pacific islands may soon have to do as the 
oceans rise and their islands disappear and breathing 
becomes impossible.'

 Eight years ago, San Carlos Foundation Co-Founders Fr. Bill O’Donnell and Actor Martin Sheen teamed up for the first of three popular public ‘Conversations.’ The School of the Americas (SOA), the US Government’s Torture Training Academy for Foreign Military Officers, was a prime focus of their conversation. It is fitting -- two weeks after the annual protest and a week shy of the 2nd anniversary of Fr. Bill’s death -- that SOA Watcch Founder Fr. Roy Bourgeois take Fr. Bill’s seat for this, the next conversation. For more information contact: Dr. Davida Coady, President

SOA used to be in Panama, until Manuel Noriega said it had to go.
Noriega was an important drug smuggling ally for the CIA.
When he broke with the CIA because he was not happy about the US school of torture in Panama, his days were numbered. 
Two other notable men who the CIA made alliances with:
Sadam Hussein, Osama Bin Laden.
The CIA makes allies of people it can use to torture and murder it's enemies.
The CIA was arming, training and using Osama Bin Laden to fight the USSR in Afghanistan.
Before Sept 11, 2001, the CIA was negotiating an oil pipeline through Afghanistan to be built by Haliburton, paid for by Enron, to supply Unocal 76.  Those negotiations broke down.  That was plan A.
Plan B was flying our own airplanes into our own buildings and blaming them.
SEE: Operation Northwoods (1962) Plan B has been on the table for 43 years.
Cheney, Perle, Wolfowitz, et al are part of Project for a new American Century (PNAC) who wrote: (5 years before 911)
Without a Pearl Harbor style invasion the American people will not accept 
the empirical mobilization necessary to seize middle eastern oil. 
CIA initiated Saddam Hussein by having him commit an assasination in Iraq to prove himself.
Once installed to power by CIA, Saddam did oversee the torture and execution of an entire generation Iraqis.
Every Iraqi student or activist who had political aspirations was killed by Saddam who was a CIA operative.

#  9/11 Strategy Conference  Sunday, December 4th, 2005

 10:00am - 1:00pm
 Brainstorm -- Gathering people's best ideas..

 1:00pm - 5:00pm, followed by informal gathering
 Strategy Discussion -- Creating the Big Picture..

 Veterans War Memorial Building, 2nd Floor, 401 Van Ness Ave., San
 Francisco (Right across from City Hall, Near Civic Center BART)

 On Sunday, after hearing presentations, watching some movies and
 discussing the day before, we will hold an organized planning session.

 First, we will work to gather a comprehensive set of strategies for the
 911 Truth Movement, problems we have faced that we want to figure out,
 and the best ideas that our participants have to succeed and overcome
 these obstacles.

 Second, these ideas will be typed, printed, and arranged on the wall in
 The Big Picture. The process will involve determining which of the
 strategies will best succeed, and coming up with solutions to the
 problems our movement has faced, as well as deciding on our medium and
 long term strategy for action.

 How can we bring together the 911 Truth Movement and the Anti-War
 Why is most of the anti-war movement still loyal to the 911 Lie?

 How can we raise the visibility of the 911 issue by running for elected

 How can the 911 Movement prevent delberate government misinformation
 from dividing our movement and confusing the public?
 How can we take advantage of the all-time high in public perception of
 Bush administration lies and criminality?

 Who do we need to focus our outreach on? Fellow activists still loyal
 to the 911 Lie? Alternative Media? Mass Media? Youth? Democrats?
 Which group is the most decisive one to fully expose 911?

 What mistakes have we made in the past, and how do we not make them

# Important Hearing Monday, December 5th, 1PM City Hall SF Tree Legislation 
The proposed Landmark Tree Legislation Does Not Protect Enough Trees!
 It is very important that the supervisors hear your concerns.
Please lend your support. Attend the tree legislation hearing
City Operations & Neighborhood Services Committee
Monday, December 5th, at 1pm, City Hall, room 263

You Don’t Need to Go to the Redwood Forests to See Clear Cutting
240 Trees At Hunter’s Point, San Francisco  October, 2005
Alert! Your Support Is Needed to Protect Our Trees!
The proposed landmark tree legislation does not protect enough trees
 It is very important that the supervisors hear your concerns.
Please lend your support.  Attend the tree legislation hearing
City Operations & Neighborhood Services Committee

Monday, December 5th, at 4pm, City Hall, room 263
(Time has been changed. No longer slated for 1pm)

Currently, only 100,000 street trees require a public process before removal, leaving 568,000 San Francisco street trees with no due process. Supervisor’s McGoldrick’s landmark tree legislation will protect only 300 additional trees a year. When private property is sold to real estate developers or when large development is planned on city land no trees are protected.  

Above, all large trees in 64.5 acres were clear cut at Hunter’s Point, many of landmark quality. The developer’s  replacement is a 15 gallon tree, approximately 5 feet tall with a trunk diameter of two inches.  A canopy and grove of equal value will not be regained for another 30 to 40 years, if ever!
Supervisor McGoldrick’s tree legislation does not include a uniform policy for all City departments, including the Recreation & Park Department and SF Redevelopment Agency. 

Out of all San Francisco’s trees only 12.9% have a trunk diameter of 16 inches or more. Over 50% of SF’s larger, mature trees have been cut down and replaced with newly planted small trees.   These trees currently have a trunk diameter of only 3 to 6 inches!  It will take many years before these saplings will protect our environmental health or contribute to the beauty of  a mature urban forest.

Re: Tree Protection Legislation

Dear Supervisor McGoldrick,
I write today because I am really upset by the loss of 240 large trees, several of “Landmark” quality, at Hunters Point housing development.
At a meeting with Nicole Franklin, Project Manager and Paul Menaker, Vice-President of Lennar Construction, we were assured that some of the replacement trees would be of "equal value" to compensate for what I consider a devastating loss of trees in the City.
The replacement trees mentioned in the "conceptual" plan are 15 gallon size trees. I asked about whether varied species, size and age trees would be planted. I was told that a yet to be produced working plan would specify that. At this point, my only hope is Lennar will plant a few larger trees in order to assure a greater profit selling homes.
A similar development is now proposed for Treasure Island, and I am very concerned that an arborist, paid to write a “conceptual” report (like in Hunters Point), will conclude that all the large trees are in poor health and will require removal.
San Francisco desperately needs your Tree Legislation to protect what few large trees we have left, especially in large new development plans.  According to the USDA Forest Service report, only 12.9% of the City’s 668,000 trees have a trunk diameter of 16" or more. Without a uniform policy the public and within city departments are not informed about proposed tree removals. Each year, San Francisco falls behind other large cities in the beauty of its urban forest.
SF trees do not need protection from residents who want to continue living in their homes and love their trees, but when a property is sold, to be replaced by buildings of several units, developers usually remove trees. 
I am very grateful for your support in protecting our urban forest and hope that you will continue working to protect our dwindling resource of large trees.

=v= According to this
Global Exchange action has been described as entailing "an
after teach-in with representatives from the San Fran and
Oakland mayoral offices."

=v= I am concerned that this even *not* be yet another feel-good
eco-photo-op for Newsom & Co.  A few months back, Newsom signed
some sort of green cities pledge on World Environment Day, and
got excellent press for it nationwide.

=v= Shortly after that, he cut back Muni service AND raised its
fares AND devoted more money to extend police state tactics to
the Muni system.  I shouldn't have to spell this out, but that
is the opposite of a green cities approach, as it discourages
people from using public transit and encourages them to drive
cars, pollute the air, waste gas, and fund oil wars.

# The Heydey of Natural History Thu Dec 8 7:30-9 pm Free.
Never has the status of science been held in higher esteem and the  
public taken a bigger interest in natural history than during the  
mid-19th century in America and Britain. This was a time of great  
voyages of discovery, when fabulous fossil beasts were first  
unearthed and put on public display. Most of today's renowned science  
museums, including the California Academy of Sciences, were  
established amid this enchantment with natural history. No middle- 
class home was thought complete without a display of butterfly  
collections or stuffed birds. John Dillon, Science Director at the  
Randall Museum and President of the San Francisco Amateur  
Astronomers, will explore the nature and extent of this fervor and  
how Charles Darwin's Origin of Species influenced it. San Francisco

# To All Animal Artists ~
Animal Switchboard (AS) is looking for a logo for its various purposes (e.g., letterhead).  The general idea is a couple of telephone poles with a wire between them with a couple of birds perched on the wire, and a squirrel (or two) crawling up one of the poles.  If you want to elaborate on that, feel free - but remember to keep it simple as it's just a logo - not a huge picture - probably best to just to draw something with dark pencil or black ink.
If any artist out there would like to take a crack at it, you can e-mail your work to Virginia Handley, AS President, at virginia animalswitchboard org or snail mail it to Virginia at Animal Switchboard, Fort Mason Center, San Francisco, CA 94123 - or just bring artwork with you to upcoming "Animal People Party," hosted by AS at Fort Mason Center on December 11, Sunday, 2 PM to 4 PM. 
If your art is chosen to be the AS logo, there will be a prize - and, of course, some publicity for your artwork.

# Panel Discussion:  Int'l Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers
 Dec 17 10AM-2PM $5 donation
Dec 17th, Third Annual International Day to End Violence Against Sex  

International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers is meant to  
call attention to hate crimes and violence against sex workers all  
over the globe. Originally thought of by Dr. Annie Sprinkle and  
started by the Sex Workers Outreach Project USA as a memorial and  
vigil for the victims of the Green River Killer in Seattle  
Washington, it has grown to be a day for strategizing to end these  
acts as well as remember the victims. Over thirty cities around the  
world have participated in this event.

This year Sex Workers Outreach Project is expanding events to cover  
the entire week of December 17th so that we may diversify the forums  
for discussion around violence against sex workers.

The Panel Discussion portion of these events on Dec. 17th from  
10AM-2PM will focus on both identifying forms of violence against sex  
workers, including structural violence and stigmatization, as well as  
thinking of solutions.  Panelists will include sex workers' rights  
activists, sex workers, prison abolitionists, law enforcement, and more!

Our tentative schedule for this entire week is as follows:
Thursday, December 15th: 6:30 PM-8:30 PM
Memorial and Community Discussion
Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists
1924 Cedar x Bonita

Saturday, December 17th: 10 AM-2 PM
Ending Violence, Discrimination and Stigma Around Sex Work
1515 Webster St.
Panel discussion in the morning followed by lunch and afternoon  
strategizing. $5 donation requested.

One of the ways to contribute to this event is to submit original  
artwork and or written word to be displayed at the candle light vigil  
in Civic Center at dusk on December 17th. Make yourself heard in the

# Unsilent Night Wed Dec 21 6:45 PM Free

----/ Event Description /-----------------------------------------------

"Unsilent Night," composer Phil Kline's free, all-volunteer outdoor  
boombox holiday concert, returns to San Francisco for its third  
annual performance on Wednesday, December 21, 2005, at 6:45 PM.

A moving piece of ambient public art, Unsilent Night can be compared  
to a holiday caroling party, except that participants don't sing.  
Instead, each carries a boombox playing a separate cassette, CD, or  
MP3 that becomes part of the piece. In effect, Kline and his co- 
performers become single elements in a huge, mobile sound system.

Performed within the confines of the city streets, Unsilent Night  
reverberates off the cars and buildings, resulting in a magnificent,  
drifting cloud of shimmering, echoing sound. The 43-minute piece  
includes chiming bells, choral voices, and various electronic  
effects. (Kline cites Brian Eno and Charles Ives among his influences.)

Kline has performed Unsilent Night in Manhattan every year city since  
1992. In San Francisco last year, some 500 people took part. This  
year marks the first chance for iPod users to participate, as Kline  
will make MP3 files of the piece available on his website.

Participants are invited to bring a boombox to Mission Dolores Park  
at 18th and Dolores Streets, gathering at 6:45 PM. After Kline  
distributes tapes and CDs among the players, the group will begin the  
piece, strolling a mile-long, predetermined route though the Mission,  
Noe, and Castro districts. The event will be held rain or shine.

The Great Owl Invasion
obvious and blatant freemasonic symbols on the dollar bill, what precisely that hidden microscopic owl is doing there.
Neither will we ever be certain whether those plans for the National Mall surrounding the White House, the Washington Monument and the U.S. Capital proposed by the McMillan Commission in the same year that the Bohemian Owl worshipers legally acquired their grove in California, had anything to do with why there appears to be a Giant Owl surrounding the Capitol Building.
