New non-lethal weapon lets troops microwave hostile crowds 
Special to World Tribune.com 
http://GEOSTRATEGY-DIRECT.COM
Thursday, February 3, 2005 The United States has developed a non-lethal 
microwave weapon for use in Iraq. 
The Active Denial System uses millimeter-wave electromagnetic energy that can 
be directed at targets at a range of 1 kilometer.   
Officials said the vehicle, termed Sheriff, would contain the Active Denial 
System. The system uses millimeter-wave electromagnetic energy that can be 
directed at targets at a range of 1 kilometer. The ADS system would be downgraded 
for Iraqi deployment in urban areas, officials said. The ADS causes the skin 
to burn, causing the people to run away.

Dr. Russell Blaylock: Mercury Amalgam Fillings: Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics
I have just posted a new article on the WNHO site
entitled, "Mercury Amalgam Fillings: Lies, Damn Lies
and Statistics," and written by Neurosurgeon Russell
Blaylock, M.D.
Dr. Blaylock wrote this in response to the LSRO
position paper which declared dental amalgams to be
safe. It appeared originally in the IAOMT-
organization website. The IAOMT are a group of dentists
who oppose dental amalgam and fluoride use. Dr.
Blaylock has given us permission to post this on the
WNHO site. Here is a link for your convenience - Bradley

"This so-called ill treatment and torture in detention centers,
stories of which were spread everywhere among the people, and later
by the prisoners who were freed . were not, as some assumed, inflicted
methodically, but were excesses committed by individual prison guards,
their deputies, and men who laid violent hands on the detainees."
- Rudolf Hoess SS commandant at Auschwitz

An Alex Jones Film presented by Erin McCann
The club at Bohemian Grove is located inside a 2,700 acre redwood grove. At this unholy place a 3,000 year-old Caananite cult is being revived. Each year, members of this all-male ultra-elite club don red, black, and silver robes and conduct an occult ritual wherein they worship a giant stone owl and burn a human being "in effigy" as a sacrifice to their owl god. Now, for the first time in history, an outsider has infiltrated Bohemian Grove with a hidden video camera and caught the ritual on tape. That man is Alex Jones. 
The film is FREE but $5 donations are accepted

 House Rabbit Society is hosting a special Valentine Bunny Event on 
February 12th, from 12:00 to 4:00 at the Richmond Shelter. 
Has your bunny been lonely because he has lost a companion or does he or she just need a friend? Don't put his happiness on hold any longer! Bring him or her by the shelter to meet our adorable bunnies. Volunteers will be on hand to work with you and your bunny to find the perfect mate. We request an appointment for the matchmaking sessions, so call early. There is no fee. Of course, if it is you who are looking for a loving companion rabbit, you too are welcome and do not need to make an appointment. 
Ken Mark will be again taking beautiful bunny photo portraits with a heart-motif background. If you missed our November holiday photo shoot, you'll definitely want to be here for this. A modest donation will be charged. 
Last, but not least, there will be a very "heart-y" Valentine vegan luncheon featuring a cream of tomato and vegetable soup, a green salad mixed with heart-shaped red peppers, daikon radish and other vegetables, whole wheat herb rolls and a yummy chocolate cake with raspberry cream frosting. The lunch will be available from 12:00 to 3:00, and take out is again an option. The cost for the luncheon is $11.00, and reservations are required. 
To reserve time for a bunny matchmaking session or to make a reservation for the luncheon, please call the shelter at 510 970-7575. Staff will confirm your appointment time and/or luncheon reservation.

# Third Annual International Quirkyalone Day Party
2/12/05 8 pm = 1 am $5-$20 sliding scale
Come help celebrate a growing international movement that reclaims Valentine's Day for those of us who relish solitude, close friendships, freedom, and creativity, and who judge our lives by the amount of passion in them rather than by whether we're single or not.
International Quirkyalone Day (IQD) is a growing movement of people who are reclaiming Valentine's Day and making it a fun, inclusive, do-it-yourself holiday. Unlike the anti-Valentine's movement, Quirkyalone is a positive declaration-a feel-good alternative to the marketing barrage of Valentine's Day and an antidote to the silicone version of love presented in shows such as Joe Millionaire and The Bachelorette. IQD is a celebration of individuality, romance, friendship, and self-respect on Feb 14.
The flagship party will be held in San Francisco, the epicenter of the Quirkyalone movement. Last year 350 people attended, and we're expecting a similarly successful event this year. International Quirkyalone Day is officially february 14, but we will be celebrating on February 12, this year.
Party highlights:
-Quirkycrafts (make your own quirkyalone journal)
- Party games
- Late-night dance party with songs inspired by the quirkyalone movement
- Quirkyalone Love Connection Game
- Power Point presentation announcing the nominees and winners of the first annual Quirkys (awards of the quirkyalone community). Awards will be given for, among other things, Best Quirkyalone Movie, Song, and Book of 2004, the Most Offensively Unquirkyalone Reality Show, and the Most Unquirkyalone Celebrity Couple.
- World premiere screening of a short movie on International Quirkyalone Day
- Raffle ticket included with price of admission-prizes include quirkyalone t-shirts (girl and boy styles), bumper sticker, and trucker hat.
-Signed copies of QuirkyAlone for sale by Valencia Street Books

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).

# 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

oils, vinegar, spices, salt...is it raw, healthy, etc. Could it be added

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!

# Dear 9-11 Activists,

      In the magically, organic, cooperative process of organizing 9-11
events- wonderful things have happened, and the events are growing into 
something quite powerful.  Contracts have yet to be signed, nuts and bolts
 details still need to be worked out, but this is what we have so far-

Co- Sponsors- Veterans for Peace, 9-11 Share the Truth.org, 911truth.org, 
KPFA, (probably San Francisco Bay Guardian, too!) Keplers Bookstore, Black
 Oaks Bookstore, Cody's Bookstore, City Lights Bookstore, Valencia Street 
Bookstore...

Premier benefit showings of The Great Conspiracy- The 9-11 News Special
You  Never Saw with producer Barrie Zwicker, Webster Tarpley, author of
9-11  Synthetic Terror- Made in the USA, Michael Kane (NY9-11 Truth),
Peter  Phillips, Director of Project Censored, and representatives of the
press.

Proceeds will benefit 911truth.org, and Northern California 9-11 Truth 
Alliance, in their efforts to petition California State Attorney General
to  investigate the unsolved crimes of 9-11.

The documentary will be screened at 7:30 PM at -

The Guild Theatre (holds 270) in Menlo Park, Wednesday, March 9th
The Grand Lakes Theatre (holds 570) in Oakland, Thursday, March 10th The
Herbst Theatre (holds 970) in San Francisco, Friday, March 11th

(Project Censored is also organizing a screening in Sonoma (capacity
4-500)  on Saturday, March 12th, and Black Oak Books will have a reading
in  Berkeley, Sunday, March 12th at 7:30 PM with Peter Phillips and
Webster  Tarpley)

On Friday, March 11th, prior to the evening screening- there will be a 
major press conference at the Herbst with 9-11 researchers, activists, 
supporters of the inquiry, the criminal investigation, and prosecution of 
those responsible for 9-11, followed by a reception, dinner break,
tabling,  organizing opportunity in the large rooms on the second floor of
the War  Memorial and Veteran's Building where the Theatre is located. 
The press  conference will be a free event open to the public.

(Please do not post this wildly about, yet- as we aren't legally supposed 
to give out all this info until all the contracts are signed.)  But 
Northern California 9-11 Truth Alliance is spearheading this and needs to 
discuss it at our meeting tonight... and I still need to talk with 
911truth.org to figure out how to make this work for all of us.  If you
can  think of organizations that would be willing to co-sponsor/want to
table at  the event- please help facilitate that.  And we could sure use
help, once  the posters, handbills are here, to spread the word, and I
will send out a  press advisory/press release, email invitation, (some
folks might want to  fly out here for this event).

We would love more co-sponsors and input on the best press/public 
presentations to convey at the press conference- (so whistleblowers now is
 the time to come forward)... or anyone who has solid great info which we 
should include/know about, and can present at it.  We will also make press
 packets... Obviously we don't lack for evidence, but do need to overcome 
the psychological barriers so that people can look at it.  I do think 
co-sponsors or those who want to help, participate in the press conference
 should come to a media strategy meeting- I'm going to ask Veteran's for 
Peace to help us get a big room for that at the War Memorial Building on 
February 12th or 13th- and I'll announce that/post it on my website- or 
email me if you want to come.

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
March 15th, two children, aged 11 and 12, were beaten by the Swiss police.

# 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.

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
