10) California's forests will continue to succumb to development unless landowners' profits outweigh the costs of logging regulations, a report by a group of ranching, environmental and agency representatives says. The Buckeye Conservancy released its final report Thursday, repeating its concerns that both clear-cutting and subdividing land can be far more financially attractive to a landowner than using more gentle logging methods, as many would like. The group recommended that logging plans should be good for longer than the current three-year period, and that landowners with up to 10,000 acres should qualify for non-industrial management plans. The development of the state's forests -- some 30,000 to 40,000 acres each year -- has become a major issue over the past decade. State resource leaders have said the loss of those lands is a disaster for wildlife and fish as well as a detriment to offsetting California's greenhouse gas emissions. In May, California Resources Agency Secretary Mike Chrisman called climate change a “ticking time bomb,” calling special attention to Northern California's forests as one tool to help keep global warming at bay. The Buckeye report said that California's increasingly complex logging regulations are geared at industrial timber owners, but smaller landowners find them even more burdensome. About 60 percent of the state's private forest is owned by ranchers and others who often want to log less intensively. That's typically what most environmentalists want, greatly favoring light-touch logging over subdividing and developing land that's important habitat for plants and animals. A 2003 project found that a 160-acre stand on a ranch along the Van Duzen River was only profitable if it were clear-cut or developed. The family that owned the property would have to pay $35,000 to $45,000 to prepare a logging plan that would net them only $5,000 for the logs. Clear-cutting turned a $30,000 profit, while selling it for development would yield $250,000. A Mattole rancher, Sally French, said in the report that her family used to log fewer trees than its logging plans allowed, something no longer feasible. ”Now we have to harvest pretty much all that we're allowed to because we have to cover the costs of the THP and earn some kind of income,” French said. ”The Sierra Club definitely sees that there are advantages to making it more affordable to do the type of logging that we would like to see,” Mason said. 

11) Paul Zinke, Professor of Forestry at UC Berkeley ranked silvicultural systems and harvesting methods by their degree of soil disturbance. Of the six silvicultural systems, which include single tree selection, group selection, shelterwood, seed tree, clearcutting and biomass harvesting, single tree selection, with 10 percent of the area affected and 5 percent of the trees removed, was ranked lowest. Clearcutting, with more than 90 percent of the area affected, was ranked highest and clearcutting where the crowns as well as the logs were removed had a greater impact on soil fertility because the foliage, twigs and branches contain the highest above ground nutrients of the tree. Of the harvesting methods evaluated, feller-bunching and tractor or skidder logging produced a higher degree of soil disturbance than cable and horse logging which produced a higher degree of soil disturbance than helicopter logging. The type of silviculture, harvesting, site preparation, slash management and road management interact with each other, the topography, e.g. steepness of slope and aspect, and the characteristics of the soil, e.g. shallow, bare, infertile and/ or saturated, to further minimize or maximize soil impacts. No matter the silvicultural system or the harvesting method, the creation of slash is inevitable. Slash management includes leaving slash in place, burning, lopping and scattering, chipping, packing slash on skid roads or removing slash from the site altogether. Generally, leaving slash in place is best because the nutrient cycle and soil fertility is impacted less. Roads can significantly contribute to soil loss, organic matter loss and compaction. Minimizing roads, using roads in the season for which they were designed, draining roads well and frequently onto stable surfaces, diversion proofing crossings, and designing crossings for the large episodic event are road management practices to minimize impacts on soil.

# Ask a Scientist - Gray Whale Mystery 

Mon, Jul 10 7:00 - 9:00 pm Free 

Ask a Scientist and KQED present: Gray Whale Mystery 

Once hunted to the brink of extinction, the gray whale has made an 
amazing comeback in the last 80 years. But in 1999 and 2000, these 
unique creatures suddenly began to disappear by the thousands -- 
losing an entire one-third of their population. In the "Gray Whale 
Obstacle Course" episode of KQED's "Jean-Michel Cousteau Ocean 
Adventures" (airing July 19th), Cousteau and his team look for 
answers as they travel the friendly giants' long migration route 
through polluted waters fraught with hungry killer whales and 
dangerous military sonar, all the way to their diminishing Arctic 
feeding grounds. Come get a sneak preview of this thought-provoking 
episode and learn more about these fascinating animals at tonight's 
talk, co-presented with KQED. 

Speaker: Shari Bookstaff, Professor of Biology at Skyline College and 
President of the American Cetacean Society 

About the Series: Ask a Scientist is an informative, entertaining, 
science lecture series, held at a San Francisco cafe. Each event 
features a speaker on a current topic, a short presentation, and the 
opportunity to ask all those burning questions that have been keeping 
you up at night. No tests, grades, or pressurehellipjust food, 
drinks, socializing, and conversation about the universe's most 
fascinating mysteries!

# The 711 Club Memorial Flashmob: 7:11 on 7/11 in front of the 7-11 at 711 
Tue, Jul 11 7:11pm-8:00pm Free 
What better way to remember the 711 than to spend 7/11 at the 7-11? 

What: Flashmob to memorialize the 711 Club 
Where: 711 Market Street 
When: 7:11 PM on July 7. 

Do you remember the 711 Club at 711 Market street, the charming 
little dive behind the carved dutch doors on Market near 3rd? Of 
course you do. How could you forget any bar with a glittery ceiling, 
fuzzy wallpaper, and that carving on the back wall. 

Did you shed a tear when it suddenly closed in 2003? Did you think 
it was a joke when the 7-11 logos went up? Did you wonder if Martin 
finally won the Lotto? 

Do you still miss the place? 

If so, than this is for you. On TUESDAY, JULY 11TH, at 
approximately 7:11 PM, it will be time to remember the 711 Club - the 
only speakeasy turned saloon turned dive bar turned ironic 
convenience store in the lower 48. 

And is there a better place to remember the 711 at 7:11 on 7/11 than 
in front of the 7-11? 

No. There isn't. 

We're going to do this flashmob style. Please arrive before 7:11, 
and bring a beverage of your choice (bonus points for Kostritzer). 
Loiter around the corner of 3rd and market until the time is right. 

At exactly 7:11 pm, you should walk to the front of the 7-11 (at 711 
Market St, natch), open your beverage and spill some on the ground. 
Then you are encouraged to loiter, beverage in hand, in front of the 
7-11 reminiscing.

Silicon Valley in Defense of Animals, and other concerned citizens will protests Ringling Bros. circus when they open in Fresno on July 12. 

Circuses exploit animals to death for profit. Ringling Bros. has been cited multiple times by the USDA for violations of the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) and animals continue to suffer and die at Ringling Bros. as well as all circuses. 

While the circus propaganda taunts that the animals are well taking care of, the facts tell a much different story. 

Ringling's public relations scheme clings to their so called "Elephant conservation program" which has not saved one single elephant in the wild nor it has saved any elephant's habitat. On the contrary. Ringling has paid poachers to kill and kidnap baby elephants from their families in the wild and it breeds the animals in a captive environment were they are kept chained by 2 legs in concrete warehouses and tare the babies apart from their mothers and family members to subject them to daily beatings to break their spirits and into human domination and submission. Tigers and other animals are also beaten regularly to force them to do unnatural, demeaning and humiliating acts, non of which are a part of their true nature. 

At least 21 Elephants have been killed by Ringling Bros., all premature, unnatural deaths and many other animals have suffered horrible deaths as well. Animals are trained by punishment, beatings, deprivation of food and water, isolation etc. Furthermore, the animals live caged and chained throughout their entire lives and endure the rigorous and stressful aspects of being transported on tiny cages and box cars constantly, from city to city throughout their entire, miserable existence. 

Animals do not belong in circuses and did not evolve to "entertain" humans. 

"The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not created for humans any more than blacks were made for whites of women created for man." Alice Walker

Hatchet (the streetwise velociraptor) and Kafka (the giant cockroach) 
become 'The Laptop Banditos'; a duo of ruthless criminals bent on 
stealing the wireless laptops from unwary San Franciscans. Can Mayor 
Newsom defend the City from these nefarious fiends, or will the 
internet cafes forever lay in the grip of terror? 

Combining folklore, mythology, Lovecraftian monsters and pop-culture 
parody, Shadow Circus Creature Theatre has been one of San 
Francisco's most popular and outrageous puppetry troupes since it's 
formation in 2000. Using life-sized latex and foam creatures Shadow 
Circus creates a world that is utterly fantastic, and yet hilariously

# Downloading the Past Thu, Jul 13 6:00-7:30 p.m. 
The reception is free and open to the public 

On Thursday, July 13, the GLBT Historical Society will hold 
"Downloading the Past," a panel exploring the GLB Gay History 
Writers' Project and its efforts to create downloadable e-books of 
rare, out-of-print gay fiction. Program participants will include 
Writers' Project founder and novelist Barton Lewis, classic gay 
writer John Coriolan, and Cesar Love, the son of Richard Amory, whose 
1971 novel Frost is a featured e-book. San Francisco State University 
English Professor Jim Brogan will also provide historical and 
literary context. In addition to describing writing and publishing 
fiction and erotic novels from the 1950s through the 1980s, panelists 
will share the art of e-books as preservation. A web presentation and 
an interactive conversation will accompany the panel. 

"Too often, classic 'pulp fiction' simply disappears or becomes 
accessible only through archives such as the GLBT Historical 
Society," said GLBT Historical Society Executive Director Terence 
Kissack. "The GLB Gay History Writers' Project makes these works 
available again worldwide at the click of a mouse." 

In conjunction with "Downloading the Past," the Historical Society 
will stage a special mini-exhibit of lesbian and gay paperback 
fiction from the 1950s and 1960s. The event is free and open to the 
public and will include light refreshments and free admittance to the 
gallery exhibits, "Capturing the Moment: The Photojournalism of Rick 
Gerharter," and "Sporting Life: GLBT Athletics from the 1960s to Today." 

WHAT: "Downloading the Past: The GLB Gay Writers' Project" panel 

WHERE: GLBT Historical Society, 657 Mission St, Ste 300 (btwn New 
Montgomery & Third) 

WHEN: Thursday, July 13, 6:00-7:30 p.m. The reception is free and 
open to the public.

# 7/13: End of Suburbia Screening & Action (walnut creek) 
We had a great screening of End of Suburbia on June 8th. Those who came were energized to start local action in Contra Costa County. So much so, that we decided to show it again at our July meeting and really encourage those who didn't/couldn't come to be there this time. While the film is showing, those who saw it last time will meet in the next room to begin our discussions about local action in response to fossil fuel depletion and in support of sustainable living. We already have some good ideas and models. Come join us!

Choosing Life: Exploring Nutrition as the Gateway to Immortality 
featuring Wayne Chandler M.S., C.P.H., S.C.E 
Date: Saturday, July 15 & 22, 2006 
Time: July 15, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM & July 22, 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM 
Location: The Dream Space 7433 Hillmont Dr. Oakland, CA 
Fee: $60.00 ($20 per session) Early registration* $65.00 at the door 

This Three Part lecture series will take participants through a journey of physical rejuvenation and re-youthing experience which is the destiny and the wave of the human race. The information presented is the cutting edge and constitutes the latest research in bio-chemical, core energetics, and Mind-Body-Spirit medicine. These segments will enlighten participants to the avenues one may take to regenerate systemically the human body. 

Part One will explore the various reasons why the human body degenerates though it is primed and genetically coded to live forever. Immortality is the birthright of every human being, yet an array of cultural/social mechanisms prevents the human entity from living past the average age of 65-75 years...the last 25 of those years being absorbed in physical decay, pain, and emotional misery. 
Part Two will examine the various foods, supplements, and elixirs that reinstate the overall vitality of the human body. Simple trace minerals such as zinc play an overwhelmingly essential role in all generative functions...physical and energetic. 
Part Three: Immortal Energetics will discuss the relationship of the organs in the human body as they relate to our overall mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health. This presentation will reveal specific techniques and practices one can do to reestablish the keys to health and longevity by manipulating the death codes programmed into the human body and replacing them with the light codes of vitality and long life. 

BIO - Wayne B. Chandler, M.S., C.P.H., S.C.E. is the author of Ancient Future: The Teachings and Prophetic Wisdom of the Seven Hermetic Laws of Ancient Egypt and the forth coming book The Brighter Side of Darkness: A Light Warriors Guide to Inner Alchemy and Spiritual Revelation. He is a motivational speaker and workshop coordinator and has lectured around the globe. Chandler is certified in the techniques of Core Energetics; as instructed by Mantak Chia, Choa Kok Sui and Minke DeVoss. He is also certified in Tui Na, one of the pillars of Chinese Medical Science.

# July 15 - Day of Action against Climate Change and G8 - EF! Call to Action! 
A call to action from Earth First! Climate Caucus and Rising Tide North America 
July 15th 2006 -- Direct Action for Climate Justice 

International Day of Direct Action 
against Climate Change and the G8 
Rise Up Against G8 Policies 
Target Fossil Fuel Industries in Your Town or Bioregion 

On July 15th, the "Group of 8" (G8) richest industrialized countries will gather in St. Petersburg, Russia to plot their continued commodification and domination of the planet, this time under the banner of "Energy Security." A leaked G8 "Communique on Energy Security" calls for trillions of dollars in new investments in oil, gas and coal production worldwide, plus wide-scale global expansion of nuclear energy. With runaway climate change* looming just over the horizon, such neoliberal business-as-usual poses a direct threat to the continuation of life on Earth as we know it. Resistance is self defense. The G8 agenda promotes petroleum-dependent "Energy Security" that pollutes our land and atmosphere, ravages poor and indigenous communities, and scorches the Earth's climate. Their recipe for disaster must be met with our global resistance! 

July 15th will be an International Day of Action Against Climate Change. As G8 energy ministers promise trillions in new subsidies to the industries destroying our planet and our future, we will take action to shut them down! This is a call for autonomous, decentralized actions appropriate for your town, city, or bioregion. Use this international day of action to support local struggles against oil refineries, gas pipelines, strip mines and coal-fired power plants. Disrupt the financial backers of the fossil fuel industry. Host teach-ins to spread sustainable post-petroleum living skills. Find a weak point in the infrastructure of resource exploitation and throw a literal or symbolic wrench in the works. Visit your local polluters and give 'em hell! 

The July 15th International Day of Action Against Climate Change is being mobilized by Rising Tide North America, a new network initiated in the US by the Earth First! Climate Caucus, with inspiration and support from the UK's vibrant Rising Tide direct action movement for climate justice and against climate change. Rising Tide North America is actively mobilizing July 15th actions in local bioregions, as well as reaching out to environmental justice, climate action and radical sustainability movements in all of the G8 countries plus the Global South.

Rising Tide North America is building a large collection of outreach and agit-prop materials that can be used by groups around the continent (and the world) to organize locally. These materials will be downloadable from and from the website of Rising Tide North America (comin' soon). 

Join the Rising Tide North America network, and tell us about July 15th actions against climate change being planned in your community or bioregion! Contact us at efclimatecaucus [at] 

For more information and updates about July 15th international actions against climate change, plus news and links about additional global resistance against the 2006 G8 Summit from July 14th to 17th, go to

*19 of the 20 hottest years on record have occurred since 1980. Islands in the South Pacific are already evacuating due to rising sea levels. Storms and hurricanes are growing more severe. Polar bears are drowning as their icy habitat breaks apart and drifts out to sea. Greenland and Antarctica are melting. Everyday we spew more greenhouse gases burned from fossil fuels into the atmosphere; everyday we are one step closer to what scientists refer to as "the tipping point," on the verge of catastrophic and irreversible climate chaos.

In December 2005, a group of twenty four friends, following the 
nonviolent tradition of Dorothy Day and the Catholic Worker walked to 
Guantanamo to visit the prisoners, calling themselves "Witness Against 
Torture." When they returned, they launched the "Campaign to Shut Down 
Guantanamo," which consists of public education and community 
outreach, networking and resource sharing, and acts of nonviolent 
civil disobedience to draw attention to the plight of prisoners in 
Guantanamo, and victims of the war on terrorism everywhere. Frida Berrigan frida.berrigan @

SF Mime Troupe presents: 

Imagine a nation where religious fervor runs hot, and faith rhetoric runs hotter. Where belief has replaced reason, and where Liberty and Justice play a broken second fiddle to an all powerful, omniscient and omnipresent military-industrial God complex. That's the nation Reverend C.B. De Love wants. And that's also the nation where shy civics teacher Angela Franklin finds herself. But in her struggle to stop the coming Theocracy will Angela go too far? In her zeal to destroy the opiate of the masses, will she make a religion out of her anti-religion, and join the ranks of the Gangsters for God? Or will she see the folly of blind faith in anything - even the Constitution - and return to Reason? 

Shows are free in the parks... call for ticket info for the evening shows ... the below list includes shows across the bay area and also in Point Arena, Redway, Bolinas, Palo Alto, Sebastapol, Chico, Davis, Sacramento, Ukiah, Hayward, Grass Valley, Culver City, Sonoma and Santa Cruz.

# From KQED’s series Neighborhoods: The Hidden Cities of San Francisco 
a film screening, conversation, and reception with 

associate producer/curator Elizabeth Pepinauthor/curator Lewis Wattsand Fillmore luminaries David Johnson and Reggie Pettus 
in conjunction with the exhibition 

San Francisco Performing Arts Library & Museum Tuesday, July 18 – 7:00 pm In conjunction with its current exhibition, Harlem of the West: The San Francisco Fillmore Jazz Era, San Francisco Performing Arts Library & Museum (SFPALM) presents a film screening of THE FILLMORE (1999) from KQED’s Neighborhoods: The Hidden Cities of San Francisco series, followed by a conversation with exhibition curators Elizabeth Pepin and Lewis Watts. Pepin (who was associate producer of the film) and Watts will recount their years of painstaking work in piecing together the nearly lost history of the Fillmore District, gathering oral histories and rare photographs which informed the film, and which have resulted in both the exhibition and a new book from Chronicle Books. Several notable figures from the era featured in the film and the exhibition, including photographer David Johnson and business owner Reggie Pettus, will also appear at the event and recount their experiences in the Fillmore during its thrilling heyday. Narrated by Ossie Davis, the film features extremely rare archival footage of the Fillmore, interviews with many of those who played pivotal roles in its history, and is filled with the music of the neighborhood from Count Basie to Jefferson Airplane. The evening includes a reception with the participants. This special screening of THE FILLMORE is made possible courtesy of KQED. Admission is free, but space is limited and advance reservations are required. Call 415-255-4800 or email to info [at]

Some examples of what might be offered include: how to setup a blog, 
how to get the most from shortcuts in Photoshop, configure a Drupal 
community, redesign a Web site, customize a WordPress theme, create a 
survey, optimize AdSense ads, figure out tagging, how to shoot better 
photographs or just about anything really - even non-technical things 
like how to write a press release. Ideally this will happen in one on 
one exchanges, but it could be a project with a couple of people 
involved that needs the expertise or perhaps a team of people who are 
offering their expertise. 

The event is being sponsored by BrainJams, MindJet and RateItAll.
