ALERT:  NEW EPA DEAL LETS FACTORY FARMS POLLUTE AIR WITHOUT RESTRICTION
The day after the inauguration, January 21, the Bush Administration  signed an agreement that allows factory farms to freely violate  any and all clean air standards for the next two years, and forgives  these same companies from paying fines for past air pollution violations.  In exchange for the freedom to pollute without any restrictions, the deal "requests" that factory farms agree to monitor  their air pollution and provide that data to the government. Bush's  "Dirty Air" agreement is outrageous, given that the Clean  Air Act already requires factory farms to provide air pollution  data, while also requiring facilities to adhere to clean air standards.  One of the companies that will benefit the most from this arrangement  with the Bush Administration is Tyson Foods, who also happened to  be one of the largest donors to the Bush inaugural festivities.  Fortunately there is a 30 day public comment period. Please make  your voice heard. Take action here.

A QUICK LOOK AT HOW SOME COUNTRIES ADVERTISE FOOD TO KIDS
Ireland: All television commercials  for fast food and candy are banned.
Sweden/Norway/Austria/Luxembourg:  All television advertising to children is banned.
Belgium/France/Portugal/Vietnam:  All marketing is banned in schools.
United States: Spending more per child than  any other nation in the world, the U.S.  plugs $15 billion per year into marketing food to kids, which is more than  what it would cost to provide health insurance for all uninsured children.

THICKBURGERS, WAL-MART, & COKE: THE 10 WORST CORPORATIONS OF 2004 
The Multinational Monitor has released its annual list of the "10 Worst Corporations of 2004." Among the "winners" of this prestigious award are Coca-Cola, Wal-Mart and Hardees. Coca-Cola made the list when documentation surfaced revealing the company was involved in 179 human rights violations at its bottling plants in Columbia, including allegations of involvement in nine murders of union leaders. Wal-Mart was caught manipulating the tax system in order maximize profits at the expense of taxpayers. In fact, it turns out that each of Wal-Mart's 1000+ stores are costing taxpayers nearly half a million dollars per year. Hardees made its debut on the "Worst Corporations" list for its overtly aggressive advertising of its new product, the "Monster Thickburger." The 2/3 pound sandwich is 1,420 calories and equivalent to eating five standard sized hamburgers. Learn more...

U.S. prepares invasion of Venezuela: Venezuelan ambassador
http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2005-01/28/content_2518406.htm 
http://www.chinaview.cn 2005-01-28 10:15:32 
 to control the petroleum of the South American country as 
it did in Iraq, said Venezuela's acting ambassador to Paraguay, Elmer Nino. 

Nino, cited Thursday by local Paraguayan daily ABC 
Color, said the present diplomatic crisis between 
Venezuela and Colombia was created by the United 
States as part of its future plans for an invasion. 

The Venezuelan oil reserves have a strategic value 
as they will last 350 years at the present 
exploitation level, the diplomat was quoted as saying. 

Venezuela is Latin America's second largest oil 
producer behind Mexico and the principal oil exporter 
in the region. 

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez froze his 
country's diplomatic and commercial ties with Colombia 
in early January to protest what he called Colombia's 
"kidnapping" of a rebel leader in Caracas, the 
Venezuelan capital, which he considered as a violation 
of Venezuelan national sovereignty. 

The government of Colombia rejected Chavez's 
demand to make apologies to end the dispute. 

With respect to Paraguayan President Nicanor 
Duarte's position on the Caracas-Bogota crisis, the 
ambassador said it has been neutral.

I just started a tribe for people who want to have a buddy to walk home with after work or for those who would be willing to meet up with people as they leave their shifts. 
http://walkhomesafe.tribe.net This will only work if we have a number of people on both sides who need walks home and who want to escort.

# MILITARY OUT OF OUR SCHOOLS (MOOS)

In cooperation with CODE PINK HAYWARD
STUDENTS FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE at CHABOT PRESENTS

TRAINING for INTERESTED PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS
and STUDENTS           COUNTER-RECRUITING

Part of the NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND legislation makes it
necessary for school administrators to turn over the
names of HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS to The US Military.
Students are also being recruited through video games,
which track and then contact very young potential
recruits, Army interactive vans which visit our
campuses and let students play simulated war games,
and a plethora of high market value advertising
campaigns      ..all designed to get students involved in
The Military. These recruiting techniques
disproportionately target low-income and minority
communities.

WE CAN FIGHT BACK

Court decisions have granted those of us who have an
alternative view to have equal access to our students.
CENTRAL COMMITTEE FOR CONSCIENTIOUS OBJECTION and
it’s student wing MILITARY OUT OF OUR SCHOOLS have
prepared materials to help us offer an alternative view.

If you would like to learn more, contact
Barbara@freehayward.com or (510) 582-9833
THE COUNTER-RECRUITING TRAINING SEMINAR will be held on:

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2005

On Saturday February 5th we will reconvene for Downtemple in our
favorite new playground:  A 100 year old church that has become
Oakland's Sanctuary for the Arts.

The experience of grooving out to soulful, psychedelic downtempo and
trip-hop beats while surrounded by stained glass and vaulted ceilings

# Sat Feb 5 9 PM - 2 AM FLYING PIG SEX DISASTER FUNDRAISER 
@ THE SHIPYARD in Berkeley, 1010 Murray St http://www.borg2.org 
 Come see the pig fly!  Come see the other pig do things to the first 
pig that are illegal in several states!  Come see the pig(s) burn!  
The fat will drip and the pig will split and the coins that YOU put inside the
pig will create a lovely musical symphony of metal and hog butter on a
giant donation plate.  BACON! SEX! MONEY! DON'T MISS THIS!  BRING US
YOUR CHANGE AND WE WILL CHANGE IT!

Yes, the people behind this have acually constructed a giant metal pig. 
It will be stuffed with money (my money, your money, the jingly kind)
and mated with a second pig for no good reason at all.  Suspended high
above the majestic skyline of Berkeley, it will take a magical Peter
Pan-type flight around ! the  Shipyard, possibly to the accompaniment of
bluegrass mash ups, and then it will be set aflame and immolated in its
own pigginess.  Coins will drop magically from its belly and cascade
onto a resonant metal plate.  The pig dies, but offers itself up as the
ultimate sacrifice to the good people at Coin Star Inc.  The pig who
saved art!  Hooray for the pig!

BRING YOUR SPARE CHANGE AND PUT IT INSIDE THE PIG!  I know I have like
50 bucks worth of pennies in a closet somewhere.  What am I ever going
to do with it?  Hey, what if I PUT IT INSIDE A BURNING PIG?  WE give 
the
money to artists, YOU take home memories (and perhaps the odor of
rendered pig fat) that will last a lifetime.

Come witness flaming PIG MAGIC and more: crazy hillbilly MUSIC will be
provided for your entertainment (if watching a fucking flying burning
pig drop money out of its ass isn't enough,) BAR where you can DRINK. 
BOOZE.  I SAID THE WORD.  BOOZE.  Come and spin the HYPERWHISKEY WHEEL
OF TERRER and win some crap... or learn a painful lesson. DONATE to
BORG2 and have a great time doing it... and possibly a headache.  And
much more to be announced!

VEGETARIANS AND/OR PETA MEMBERS:  NO ACTUAL PIG WILL BE HARMED DURING
THIS EVENT.  AT LEAST NOT BY US.

# StreetLevel TV screening: February 6th, 8pm @ Artist's Television Access
992 Valencia St. @ 21st, SF
ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY EPISODE AND PARTY!!!!
It's been a year exactly since a group of local video activists came
together with the goal of producing a monthly television show committed to
getting out the stories blockaded by the Channel 5's and 2's, and spun out
by the SFGate's and Tribune's of the Bay.  StreetLevel TV was born, an
entirely volunteer-operation investigating local stories of the struggle
for justice, bringing the community news from all over the world, covering
local stories of resistence and community unity, and documenting the
voices of those struggling for grassroots change to the status quo.
Screening on both sides of the Bay, StreetLevel TV has grown, steppin' up
its coverage and workin' round the clock.

Come celebrate a year of independent community media at ATA.  Join us for
some tunes, hella booze - and television coverage of YOUR community!!!

This month's episode will feature:
** The Year that Was: 2004 - a montage of the stories and events, the
disappointments and victories, that rocked the globe and the movement -
remember this???
** Newsdesk - the on-going tragedy of the people of Asia and Africa
affected by the December tsunami; the resistence in Aceh; pending housing
evictions; the war STILL raging in Iraq; California's 11th execution since
1978; historic court cases; Palestine update, and more...
** Local Solidarity with Tsunami Survivors - Bay Area groups rally and
organize to send relief to Asia, from rock to hip-hop to Balinese puppets!
** The Reality of Aceh - The remotest province of Indonesia was also the
hardest-hit by the tsunami.  Local independent reporters talk about the
political crisis & GAM's struggle for independence in Aceh, with footage
from the area before the tsunami hit
** IrRESISTable - the 3rd annual hip-hop extravaganza sponsored by the
Naked Souls Collective and Artist's Alliance
** Pro-Woman, Pro-Choice - Thousands of anti-choice Christians and
lobbyists descend on San Francisco to "walk for life" - see what happens
when San Francisco fights back!!
** No Inaguration Today: Jan. 20 - The Bay Area rallies once again to show
its disgust with the Bush administration and its bloody illegal war,
turning the heat up on oil-igarchy in power
** New Bike Co-Op in SF
** Barbara Bovine from NO BS News reports from the RNC - it was just too
funny not to put in!
** latest news on oil privatization and election SHAM in Iraq!
** ... with special guests Matt Gonzalez and Ralph Nader, shorts by
Austin-based radical ReSet Video collective, music by Monument to
Masses... AND MORE!!!
also...
back once again by popular demand: La Colectiva de Mujeres!

# "Smart Dust & Silicon Swarms:
The Brilliant New World of  Mobile Sensor Nanomesh Networks"
Sunday, February 13, 2005  1 - 5 p.m. at
Round Table Pizza
Banquet Room on 2nd Floor
5160 Geary Blvd. (at 16th Ave.)
San Francisco, California

Philip Langton
Nikola Tesla is widely acknowledged as the father of Robotics, but  even Tesla might pause in awe to ponder some of the potential applications of technologies Philip Langton is working to develop.  His research could eventually lead to scalable nanomesh net applications such as: smart  shipping labels that report damage, spray on computers or a robo-insect air force.

How  will smart dust particles talk to each other?  What are the most likely nanomesh  products to reach consumers soon?  Might we see a computer in a can in 3 years?    What are the costs and dangers of this new technology?  Mr. Langton has some  fascinating answers to share.

Philip  Langton is a second-generation Silicon Valley engineer / inventor expert in Optical Frequency Identification Devices (OFID),  Micro-Electro- Mechanical Systems (MEMS) and process control manufacturing,   Philip  recently received the first patents (US #6553481  and #6772239)  ever issued for a self-, one-time only, programmable (SOTOP™).  single-circuit  secure memory device (SCSMD).

Parking is available on the street or for $ 2 per hour in the  garage nearby behind ROSS Dept. Store.  For more information about the  San Francisco Tesla Society, call (415) 931-2593, or visit us online at http://sftesla.org


# February 16 is Global Warming Awareness Day
On February 16, 2005, the world's first global warming treaty will
become effective. The treaty requires industrialized countries to
limit, by 2008-2012, their annual emissions of greenhouse gases to
the atmosphere to 5.2 percent below 1990 level of emissions.

The United States is the largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the
world. Governmental leaders of the U.S. did not ratify the Kyoto
Treaty. Consequently, the United States is not subject to the
requirements of the Kyoto Treaty. Seventy-one countries ratified the
treaty, as of January 20, 2005.

Meanwhile, Earth's globally averaged land, ocean and atmospheric
temperatures have continued to increase, especially since about 1980.
Scientists have reported that temperatures across the globe rose an
average of 1.1 degree Fahrenheit over the past century, with the rate
of change since 1976 at roughly three times that over the past 100
years. A large majority of the world's scientists attribute the last
30 years of warming to rising accumulations of heat-
trapping "greenhouse gases" in the atmosphere. Greenhouse gases such
as carbon dioxide - the most abundant of the greenhouse gases -
remain suspended in the atmosphere upwards of 100 years, with each
year's emissions accumulating with the previous and the subsequent
years of emissions.

In 2003, U.S. emissions of greenhouse gases totaled 6.94 billion
metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent, which was 0.7 percent
higher than 2002's total U.S. emissions and 13.4 percent higher than
1990's total emissions of 6.12 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide
equivalent (U.S. Energy Information Administration, "Emissions of
Greenhouse Gases in the United States 2003", December 2004).

February 16, 2005 is being recognized as "Global Warming Awareness
Day" in the United States. Recommended actions for people in the U.S.
to take on Global Warming Awareness Day 2005 can be found by

Redefining Our Relationships 
A RADICAL LOVE WORKSHOP 
with Wendy-O Matik 
Author of the book, Redefining Our Relationships- Guidelines for Responsible Open Relationships 
$10 – $20, sliding scale 
http://www.wendyomatik.com 
This is a daring and provocative how-to workshop on radically defined relationships and alternative lifestyles. Wendy-O Matik talks about what she has lived and experienced: open relationships. She believes that open relationships reduce the hazards that accompany unhealthy co-dependency. Open relationships challenge us to confront our jealousy and possessiveness. Committing to a relationship not mapped out by our parents or society or Hollywood means tearing down the very foundation of status quo and conformity. It means redefining and rebuilding your own version of an alternative relationship based on your needs and your values. 
Loving openly and freely in this day and age, whether you're straight or queer, is a political act. We are conditioned by out-moded social norms that limit our perceptions and shackle us to unhealthy cycles of dissatisfying relationships. Yet we live in a time where we can choose our own gender or redefine our own sexual identity. Isn't it safe to assume that we also have a right to decide what kind of relationship is more suitable to our lifestyle? Declare yourself a revolutionary activist of the heart. Find out how you can expand your potential to love,and radicalize your lifestyle! 
Check out the East Bay Express article about Wendy-O here:

# BURNING SOLSTINOX  — March 5

# Photographer and tree-hugger Jack Gescheidt here, with news that the TreeSpirit is going public again, as part of the monthly Sausalito Artwalk, opening on Wed. evening, March 9th, 2005, from 5:30-8pm.  Save this evening on your calendar!   
Fellow photographer/artist—and tree-lover—John Wilmer is being generous enough to open up his beautiful studio space for this month-long TreeSpirit exhibition @ 333B Caledonia St in dowtown Sausalito (just a couple of blocks from the theater).
For those who've not seen them, see archivally framed large prints, and for those who have, see the largest print so far—40"x50".  And meet fellow tree-lovers, including many participants in the Project so far who will be in attendance (clothed; sorry).
Refreshments & hors doeuvres will be served.  I look forward to seeing  many of you there—mark your calendars! in love with trees, Jack 415.668.5225 jack@treespiritproject.com

Against Police Brutality (IDAPB). It first began in 1997 as an initiative
of the Black Flag collective in Switzerland, with the help of the Montreal
Collective Opposed to Police Brutality. The date was chosen because on

# Interdependance Day Week End - A New Global Holiday Launch
Sunday, March 20 12:00 PM
http://www.phisolama.com/interdependencehome.htm
We are inviting together a team of like-minded souls who wish to cooperate to produce an amazing global transformational event in mid-March. 
Interdependance Day is a celebrating of the inherent connection of All That Is and the Expression of a Universal Culture based on the realization that All is Related and Mutual. We are inviting Creators of all type to join together to make a most Inspiring Evocation of our Collective Spirit. 
Core to Buddhism is the realization that everything arises as an interdependent whole, that there is no separation. It is this illusion of separation that is the source of suffering, the ills of the world or "samsara". Realization and Embodiment of Interdependence is in like measure core to Our Original Expression. 
To this end we have recently started a new tribe, the "Interdependence Day" tribe to coordinate the creation of this event. You are invited to join us, too. 
Our tribe format is based a self-organizing model/experiment using tribe.net, as a collaborative "software" venue to organize and implement the launch in March of Interdependance Day.

Panel Including Ward Churchill Cancelled in New York
02/01/2005 ACADEMIC FREEDOM QUESTIONED WHEN CRITIC OF US GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION CAN'T SPEAK AT SMALL COLLEGE
February 1, 2005: University of Colorado Boulder Professor and longtime American Indian activist Ward Churchill has come under increasing criticism recently because of his view of why the September 11th events happened and could occur again. Prof. Churchill was scheduled to speak at Hamilton College in New York state this Thursday, and family members of people who died in the 9/11 incidents have been protesting his right to speak. Hamilton's website this afternoon indicated that the panel, "Limits on Dissent", has been cancelled due to "safety concerns," even after the event had been moved to a larger building. Churchill's speeches, essay, and book entitled "On the Justice of Roosting Chickens" earned national media attention in the leadup to the cancellation of the event. On January 31st he resigned his post as Chair of the Department of Ethnic Studies at the University of Colorado, but not his teaching position. Churchill is scheduled to speak at the San Francisco Anarchist Bookfair on March 26th
