Yet Another Plane Intercepted!
Doesn\'t anyone think it at least a bit odd that all of these planes in the past couple of months keep getting intercepted with fighter jets, but not even 1 of 3 planes was intercepted on 9/11?  
Could NORAD have been so incompetent to miss even the one that supposedly struck the very Pentagon iteself?!
Aren\'t Americans yet making this connection?  Or, if they are, is everyone staying home in their beds with pillows over their heads, fully afraid to say Word One about this to anyone?
Read more about Standard Operating Procedures and learn what our military jets *normally* do (and should have done on 9/11) when planes go off course:

West Coast Anti-Capitalist Mobilization Against the G8
July 6-8, San Francisco

 Call for a West Coast anti-war and anti-capitalist mass convergence, July
6-8 of 2005 in San Francisco, in solidarity with the mobilization against
the Group of Eight (G8) summit in Scotland.

 From July 6-8, 2005, the annual G8 summit we be held at Gleneagles Hotel
in Scotland. The G8 is a forum of the rulers of the eight most
industrialized, wealthy, and powerful states in the world. Every year
they meet to discuss how to further their interests, expand their empire,
and tighten their grip on every aspect of our lives. The consequences
effect us all, and their economic success comes at our expense. The G8
exists to manage and maintain a system whose impacts we see all around
us: war, genocide, wage slavery, mass poverty, structural racism, famine,
environmental destruction, colonial domination in Africa, Asia, & Latin
America, social alienation, and accelerating attacks on working people
around the world.

 But resistance is growing across the globe, in struggles as diverse as
they are numerous. And in recent years, everywhere the G8 has met huge
movements of people have confronted them, both demanding systemic change
and fighting for a global social revolution.

 In recognition of the call to action by Peoples\' Global Action for Global
Days of Action to be held against the G8, we are mobilizing for a
regional convergence here in San Francisco. We are calling on everyone
ready to fight for a better world - workers, students, revolutionaries,
anti-capitalists... - from across the North American West Coast to
converge and manifest their resistance on the streets. A Mid-West
regional convergence is being called for Kansas City, and East Coast in
Richmond, Virgina.

Our convergence will be in solidarity with those descending upon the
streets of Scotland to face the G8 head on. We act in solidarity with
revolutionaries taking to the streets to defend working peoples\' lives all
around the world: the struggle against neoliberal privatization in
Bolivia; against transit fare increases in Brazil, Chicago, and San
Francisco; against the Minutemen along the border; and against the PG&E
power plant in Hunter\'s Point.

Global capital will show the full force of its domestic military
capabilities in Scotland - we can confront these summits on our own terms,
and this mobilization is a step in that direction.

Capitalism is everywhere, but so are we - we will converge in our city and
fight it on our own terms!

# Psyche Wall + Django Chapel: Opening Reception Thu July 7 6-8 pm Free
 New Langton Arts premieres two installations that exploit both digital manipulation and sculptural installation as points of departure, July 6 to August 6, 2005.  Psyche Wall, by New York artist Jacob Hartman, and Django Chapel, by the San Francisco-based collaborative team of Jarrett Mitchell and Mary Elizabeth Yarbrough, use technology as a foundation to explore how viewers perceive art in the gallery setting. Hartman\'s installation uses sculpture, photography and video to simultaneously create and subvert visual illusions, appropriating film production methods to alter sensory perceptions of reality. Mitchell and Yarbrough\'s installation features sculpture, video and paintings inspired by Giotto\'s Arena Chapel in Italy and Corbucci\'s spaghetti western Django.

# YLEM Forum: Patterns in Nature
Wednesday, July 13, 7:30 pm
NEW VENUE --RX Gallery and Bar
(No one under 21 allowed)
132 Eddy St., San Francisco, CA 94102

Getting there:
Two blocks from Powell St. BART Station
Parking garage across the street
Also near 5th and Mission Garage
Some on-street parking, but avoid Turk St.

This forum features Trudy Myrrh Reagan - patterns evident in nature, John Edmark - the math that underlies natural patterns, Scott Draves - software that mimics nature, and Deborah Kennedy - complex ecological interactions.

Cellular Design

John Edmark will talk about his explorations that led to laser-cut sculptures and mosaics with cell-like structures. He will describe how spiral geometry, Phi (the golden ratio), and the Fibonacci numbers have all contributed to his creative process. A number of his pieces—several of which are kinetic and interactive—will be on display. 

John is a lecturer at Stanford’s Department of Art and Art History, where he teaches design. He has an M.S. in Design from Stanford and an M.S. in Computer Science from Columbia University. Before moving to the Bay Area, he did research at Bell Labs on 3D virtual environments .

My Life among the Patterns

Hexagonal patterns, branching and erosion, fluid flow, you name it, Trudy “Myrrh” Reagan has been using them in her art since 1970. Her strategy has been to use craft or painting media as analogs for the phenomena she admires. Learning why patterns propogate as they do has led her into the realms of science and philosophy. 

Myrrh is the founder of YLEM, and before that, a founding member of the California Crafts Museum, (now merged with the Museum of Craft and Folk Art, SF). She will share not only her work and philosophy, but some hands-on pattern making activities.

Environmental Interconnections
The elegant and often intricately crafted conceptual installations, performances and artworks by Deborah Kennedy communicate complex environmental themes through visual drama and metaphor. The artist\'s use of lighting, sound and symbolism brings issues such as the impact of pesticides on honeybees, the interdependence of life and the importance of sustainable technology to the public. 
Kennedy, a passionate educator, uses art as a teaching tool. Her own research into ecology creates a solid framework \"to work at the growing edge, where we as a global community are struggling to create new visions that will help solve our environmental problems. My hope is that these new perceptions will help us change how we think about ourselves and our role in the world. Then, perhaps, we can begin to change our actions as individuals and larger communities.\"

Programming Dazzling Patterns 

Scott Draves a.k.a. Spot is a visualist and programmer residing in San Francisco. He is the creator of the Fractal Flame algorithm, the Bomb visual-musical instrument, and the Electric Sheep distributed screen-saver. All of Draves\' software artworks are released as open source and distributed for free on the internet. 
His award-winning work has appeared in Wired Magazine, the Prix Ars Electronica, the O\'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference, and on the dance-floor at the Sonar festival in Barcelona. In 1997 Spot received a PhD in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University for a thesis on metaprogramming for media processing. Today he regularly projects live video for underground parties and at clubs, and self-publishes SPOTWORKS, a DVD of abstract animation synchronized with electronic music.

YLEM has a lively special interest group on patterns and visual math. To learn more, contact Trudy,

Stop Animal Exploitation Now
Join The Fight Against Animal Experimentation at University of California Laboratories
    University of California Laboratories routinely perform cruel experiments on primates and on many other species.  Rhesus monkeys are confined to restraint chairs with electrodes inserted into their brains and restraining bars literally bolted to their skulls.  Experiments such as this often lead to diseases like encephalitis, meningitis, etc.  These brutal projects also deprive the primates of water for extended periods -- up to 23 hours per day for 5 days per week.
    Primates imprisoned in laboratories often are driven insane by captivity engaging in self-mutilation and stereotypical behavior.  
    Your help is need to bring an end to these heinous projects.  These experiments and more are paid for with your tax dollars.  We estimate that UC labs receive these funding amounts per year for animal experiments:

University of California, San Francisco -- $200 million 
University of California, Los Angeles -- $188 million
University of California, Davis -- $148 million

What: Green Convergence at Bohemia for Peace and Justice

When: Friday, July 15th- Sunday, July 17th Where: Bohemian Grove is located in the Sonoma County Russian River community of Monte Rio, near the intersection of Hwy. 116 and Bohemian Highway. It is accessible on the Sonoma Transit bus #20 from Santa Rosa Transit Mall.

Mark Your Calendar. Plan your mid-summer excursion to protest the war profiteers as they come to Bohemian Grove, yet again, to cremate their \"Cares of the Marketplace\". Join local Greens, veterans\' groups, corporate responsibility organizations, faith groups, students, people who have never protested before, and the Green Party of California as they converge at Bohemian Grove and call for an end to the Carelessness of their leaders.

Why: Each year, in mid-summer, the elite members of the Bohemian Club in San Francisco gather for two weeks of revelry and \"throwing off the cares of the marketplace\" among the redwood groves along Sonoma County\'s Russian River. The club\'s members include many Presidents, past and present. George H.W. Bush are members, as well as the late Ronald Reagan, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, and every Republican President since Herbert Hoover.

But the root of the Grove\'s power is the men who support the efforts of \"their\' presidents, like they have with the current war in the Middle East. Critics call these gatherings anything but the innocent camaraderie among a group of men who happen to carry the cares of the world on their shoulders all year and just want to party for a couple of weeks.

Corporation executives and owners at the highest levels have gathered with prominent men in politics at Bohemian Grove and built networks that critics say sustains their acquisition of power and wealth throughout the year.

Who: Groups and individuals so far endorsing the Convergence Include Green Party of California, Green Party of Sonoma County, Green Party of Humboldt Co., Green Party of Mendocino County, Emerald Greens, Bohemian Grove Action Network, Veterans for Peace, Mendocino, Veterans for Peace, Garberville, Bill Meyers, Democracy Unlimited*, Dave Cobb, Green Presidential candidate, Ralph Nader, green Presidential candidate. Peter Camejo, Green Vice-Presidential candidate, Peter Phillips, Sonoma State University faculty, expert on Bohemian Grove, International Indian Treaty Council, and a growing list

# \"Is San Francisco Going to Pot?\"
Featuring: Drug Policy Alliance director Ethan Nadelmann and Mayor Gavin Newsom 
Tuesday July 26, 2005, 5:30-7:30 pm 
Jewish Community Center of San Francisco 
3200 California Street, San Francisco, CA 94118 
FREE lecture on drug policy reform
 San Francisco is once again at the center of a national debate. More than 80% of San Franciscans say medical marijuana should be legally available and a majority even supports regulating, controlling, and taxing marijuana more or less like alcohol. But the federal government says \"no\" to medical marijuana, just as patients, advocates, bureaucrats, and politicians in San Francisco attempt to create a regulatory system in response to the proliferation of \"pot clubs.\" Will \"the city that knows how\" do the right thing? Mayor Gavin Newsom and Drug Policy Alliance director Ethan Nadelmann will tackle the controversial question, \"Is San Francisco Going to Pot?\"

In our vision, central cities and existing suburbs are desirable places to live bounded by a protected greenbelt. This greenbelt includes agricultural, wilderness, habitat, watershed, and recreational lands and is recognized as essential to the Bay Area\'s environmental and economic health. All residents share a high quality of life, including access to affordable housing, a good education, cultural amenities, effective public transportation and open space. Finally, there is a widely shared ethic that recognizes the region\'s interdependence and a system of governance that fosters effective public decision-making to address regional needs.
