save earth by eating low on food chain
Eating animals necessarily means
indirectly eating many, many more plants than one would require if
one ate plants directly instead. Thus, even if one values plants
equally with animals, it makes much more sense to eat the plants
directly. If we are to live at all, ultimately plants must be eatedn
In any case, environmentally, it is tremendously less damaging to
maintain a plant-centered diet rather than a meat based one.

Eating low on food chain kills less plants.
If you eat meat, ten times as many plants are killed to feed livestock.
Feeding plants to livestock wastes calories on heat, bone, skin, hair, things you don't eat.
It takes ten pounds of protein from grain to get one pound of protein from meat.
So you can feed ten vegetarians with the amount of grain it takes to feed one meat eater.  World Health Organization  Diagnosed With Cancer?

Presented by the Sierra Club of Northern Alameda County 
American Energy Systems Corporation, a massive, global power company. purchased the privitized electricity distribution company in Tbilisi, capital of the former Soviet Republic of Georgia. The manager of the giant energy corporation must now train the formerly communist populace to pay for their electricity -- now that they have become customers of electricity. Amidst hot tempers and high drama, the manager balances his love for the Georgian people with the hardships that the company creates for them as they struggle to build a nation from the rubble of Soviet collapse. This captivating documentary tells the story of the chaotic post-Soviet transition of Georgia as it negotiates its way through corruption, assissinations, riots, clashes, and electrical disconnections and blackouts.

Save the Date for Solstinox - March 3, 2007
Do you all remember that one night of the year we are farthest from the Man, yet equally distant from two encounters with his flames?
Do you all remember the intense playa energy this planetary alignment generates, and how hard it kicks us into the season of Man?
It’s coming back. Soon!
This year, it will be at Mighty in SF. It will be mighty big. The events committee that puts on SF Decom will make it happen. And it will be a fundraiser for Black Rock Arts Foundation. This year, the vision we created in 04 is all coming together!
That special night of the year our spirits named Solstinox is coming back March 3. If you don’t save the date, you must not remember…
I can’t wait to dance with your playa souls again when the planets align.   Sunshine
PS: More to come when it comes.

A Tribute to Humphrey Jennings (1907-1950)

Saturday, March 3 at Noon at the de Young Museum's Koret Auditorium

Author David Thomson ("Dictionary of Film") introduces three documentaries by one of the most important figures in the celebrated British Documentary film movement, Humphrey Jennings. Jennings' films show the concerns and conditions of the United Kingdom during World War II. Three films are presented on March 3, including "Listen to Britain," "A Diary for Timothy" and "Fires Were Started (a.k.a. I Was a Fireman)." As a filmmaker, Jennings captured the thoughts and experiences of regular British citizens during wartime and often showed ordinary people doing extraordinary things.

In "Listen to Britain," Jennings edits and assembles everyday images of English life during World War II. The film allows the sounds of daily wartime life to narrate the story in this innovative and poetic documentary from 1942. In "A Diary for Timothy" (1944), baby Timothy James Jenkins is born on September 3, 1944, nearly at the end of the war. The film examines the child's future and the future of England post-World War II. In Jennings' 1943 film, "Fires Were Started (a.k.a. I Was A Fireman)," he follows eight firemen in Britain's Auxiliary Fire Service during a 24-hour period during the blitz in London. The only feature length film that Jennings ever made, "Fires Were Started" shows the men fighting a blaze threatening to destroy an ammunition ship at anchor by the wharf. The film blurs the lines between fiction and documentary and uses groundbreaking montage techniques.

900-Day Siege of Leningrad Documented in "Blockade" (2005) by Sergei Loznitsa

Saturday, March 3 at 3:45 p.m. at the de Young Museum's Koret Auditorium

The siege of Leningrad was the longest of World War II, spanning 900 days from September 1941 to January 1944. When Hitler barricaded access to the Soviet city of three million people, estimates of the number of residents who died from starvation, disease or cold range from 641,000 to 800,000. Comprised solely of rarely seen footage found in Soviet film archives by director Sergei Loznitsa, "Blockade" (2005) vividly re-creates those momentous events, featuring a meticulously reconstructed soundtrack added to the original black-and-white footage.

Bertrand Tavernier's "The Undeclared War" Explores the 1954-1962 Algerian War for the First Time

Sunday, March 4 at Noon at the de Young Museum's Koret Auditorium

Nearly three million French combatants were involved in the 1954-1962 Algerian War, which was never officially declared a war by the French government. Thirty years later, director Bertrand Tavernier pieced together "The Undeclared War" (1992) out of 50 hours of footage shot in Grenoble, France, the venue of one of the two largest anti-war riots in the 1950's. The film focuses on the testimonies of 28 veterans and their wives, some speaking about their memories for the very first time, to convey the war's devastating impact.

"Iraq in Fragments" Nominated for 2006 Academy Award Documentary

Sunday, March 4 at 5:00 p.m. at the de Young Museum's Koret Auditorium

In 2003 after the U.S.-led invasion, Seattle filmmaker James Longley, sneaked across the Iraq border from Egypt without a visa or proper permission. Over the next two years, Longley filmed over 300 hours of material to create the documentary, "Iraq in Fragments," exploring the lives of ordinary Iraqis. The three-part film focuses on one story for each major ethnic group in Iraq, showing the war-torn country as seen through the eyes of Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds. Winner of Best Director, Best Cinematography and Best Editing awards in the 2006 Sundance Film Festival documentary competition and winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2006 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, the film was recently nominated for a 2006 Academy Award for Documentary Film.


Presented by the DOC Film Institute, a project of the International Center for the Arts at San Francisco State University, "Witness to War: Documentary Perspectives: World War II to Iraq" honors the legacy of documentaries on war, tracing a period from World War II to the present day Iraq War.

 Hosted By:   	Craigslist Foundation
 RSVP by:   	March 13, 2007 at 4:30 pm (Pacific Time)
Topic: Nonprofit Capacity Building Through Skill Sharing
Facilitator: Allen Gunn, Executive Director of Aspiration
Many aspects of nonprofit operations, strategy and technology can be vexing if you don't have the right people to ask for guidance. Our next Nonprofit Night will allow participants to form small groups based on areas of need and interest, to compare challenges, share skills and experiences, and otherwise discover allies and resources. This peer-to-peer sharing model will allow each attendee to solicit input and ideas on a topic or challenge of his or her choice, drawing from the experience of other nonprofit leaders.
Networking begins at 5:30pm. Workshop begins at 6:00pm.

How is your asking going?  Are you receiving as many "Yes's" as you would like?
Do you have a compelling vision you keep to yourself yet yearn to express?
Are you daunted by some of the challenges that you face as you pursue your goals?
The Freedom to Ask & The Art of Asking was well received last month.  People report that they are enjoying practicing the distinctions, asking more frequently and receiving more "Yes's"!
Due to popular request, this active learning program is again being offered FREE of charge on the weekend of March 24th and 25th, 10A-6P at the Arete Center. 743 Clementina @ Howard / Folom / 9th / 8th St.

April 7 - Burning Man Town Hall (actual name of event may be changing)

BunnyJam07 is coming up, Saturday April 7th. 
It's going to be at the Porn Palace space in SF (mission, near the metreon parking garage). 
Great space, that looks really nice inside. Castle Room, Barnyard, Retro Bar Room, Jail Room, and more. 
The theme is going to be: "The Hare-Itics Ball : Ye Ole Bunny Jamme"  Hop with it. 
We really need some fresh bunny art so it's not just the same stuff recycled from last year. 
We have alot of small (as in up to 5x5 feet) spaces spread around the venue that we'd love to fill with bunny art. This is where you come in to play. Do you have an idea for an art installation, interactive art piece, performance art piece, or anything really, that you would like to bring to bunny jam? 
If so, send me a message or email me at 
We also need general volunteers for set up and running the party, but that doesn't take as much advanced planning.
