Research presented earlier this year at the American Academy of Neurology’s 59th Annual Meeting indicated that heavy drinking over a long period of time may decrease the volume of the brain. Brain volume is thought to measure brain aging. More than 14 drinks per week was the threshold for brain volume decrease. For more information about the American Academy of Neurology, visit

Tue Jul 10 7pm Flowing Dragon Swords, an experience at the Green City Gallery this Tues in Berkeley
The Green City Gallery  
invites you to experience communication on a whole other level this Tuesday, presenting:
Flowing Dragon Swords 
taught by Richard Squeri and Karuna Gerstein
Tuesday July 10th 7pm Green City Gallery, 1950 Shattuck Berkeley, CA 1 block North of University.
Donations appreciated.
Flowing Dragon Swords practice is based on non-verbal techniques and is a remarkably effective tool for you to create successful communication structures in both group settings and between individuals.
Briefly, How the Game is Played  & What it does:
 Flowing Dragon Swords is played when two people face each other and touch wooden swords, then as soon as possible, make and maintain consistent eye contact. The Sword contact is held with no aggressive movement or preplanned outcome. The object is for two people to connect deeply and if inspired, to co-create motion. When this is realized, a window to another world opens. Suddenly, there is no winning or losing, no blame, or expectation – there is simply seeing yourself and others in a profound and simple way that heals, forms bonds, and invites deep dialogue.
 "Profound in its simplicity. . .The Game offers access to the possibility of deep self discovery that lies, I think, in every person's heart."
 Jim Williams    Affiliate Services   New Dimensions World Broadcasting
 Hope to see you there!! Spead the word, and keep checking our calendar for the next events!

Learn about ingenious Exploratorium exhibits that are still being developed by Charles Sowers, Ed Tannenbaum and Shawn Lani. The Exploratorium is unusual in that visitors can look over into the exhibit development area, which gives them the real feeling that great ideas don't just drop from heaven, but are products of a lot of exploration and lab work. Three of the builders will share their process with us.
   Charles Sowers and Shawn Lani are artists and senior exhibit developers at the Exploratorium. Their work focuses on the immediate and direct presentation of real physical phenomena of striking visual beauty or emotional impact. Phenomena explored by Charles and Shawn includes water freezing, turbulence in fluids, fluidized beds of sand, dry ice comets, intriguing patterns in ferromagnetic fluid, and much more.
   Ed Tannenbaum is creating a new exhibit for the museum as well. His "Recollections" exhibit, an interactive display lets visitors move in front of a screen and watch their body movements transform into animated rainbow trails, has been at the museum for more than 20 years. His work has travelled, and Tannenbaum estimates that 30 million people worldwide have seen his work.

Cyclecide's Pedal Monster POKER RUN
 Lucky Friday 13
San Francisco, lock up your fixies -- something dumb this way comes ...
The Heavy Pedal CYCLECIDE BIKE RODEO announces its third annual PEDAL MONSTER!!
   If San Francisco is the World Capital of Weird, then CYCLECIDE BIKE RODEO is the city’s most notorious and hard-working ambassador for its two-wheeled, junk-rescuing lifestyle. The world’s only bicycle-themed circus/rodeo sideshow and pedal-powered carnival-ride midway, Cyclecide has wowed audiences from Brooklyn to Mexico City with its pedal-oriented, drunk-clown-heavy, mayhem-tastic live act and death-defying carnival rides made primarily out of “pre-cycled” bike and auto parts.
   PEDAL MONSTER, the annual gathering of the tribes -- as well as Cyclecide’s main fundraiser and hometown show of the year -- will see marauding mutant bicycle clubs from all over the country converge on the Yay Area: Black Label Bike Club from nowhere and everywhere, the Dead Baby Bike Club out of Seattle, C.H.U.N.K. 666 from Portland, San Fernando Valley’s Chaingang, and the Skidmarxxx among them.
   Friday the 13th, bicycle enthusiasts of all shapes and sizes (and legal drinking age) are invited to converge upon GESTALT -- the only bar in town with indoor bicycle parking -- to join the PEDAL MONSTER POKER RUN. For a $7 entrance fee, participants will receive a bad-ass CYCLECIDE keepsake and clown-nose signifier. Then they’ll drink beer, hopefully, and embark on a madcap two-wheeled bar crawl, in an effort to collect the best poker hand and receive a $50 prize by the end of the night. There will also be drink challenges, Cyclecide theatrics, stupid awards ceremonies, and special surprises along the way.
   Sunday is PEDAL MONSTER proper, but that's another posting.
Friday, July 13, 2007 Gathering time 6:30; leave at 7:30

How should we green the burn this year? Your ideas are needed.
See, we're collecting and sharing ideas about how people can green
their burn, and sending these out in the JRS. Take a look at the BM enviro blog, and here you can keep up with what's happening:

 )'( Bay Bridge closing - BOTH direx - Labor Day )'(
Last year's Labor Day weekend shutdown of the eastbound Bay Bridge 
worked so well that Caltrans is going to close the bridge again this 
Labor Day weekend -- but this time in both directions.

 )'( CARPOOL SITES: People travel to festivals and conferences to connect. Yet their travels are often uncoordinated, lonely and expensive. If you are planning a large event, how do you extend your welcome beyond the conference doors or festival gate?

free rideshare website to help people find others to carpool with to
get to burning man, has a rideboard too? Not sure where though.

Hey everyone. Scorch here. Just to let you know you're the first bunch

Patriot act is NULL and VOID
Any law that is repugnant to the US Constitution is NULL and VOID.
-Marburry V. Madison, 1803

Declaration of Independence

Beautiful Sattelite Picture of earth.

"Absolute, arbitrary power
over the lives, liberty and property
of freemen exists nowhere in a republic,
not even in the largest majority."
-- Wyoming Declaration of Rights Art. I, Sec. 7
also found in the Kentucky Declaration of Rights - Art. I, Sec. 2,.Sec..7.Quote.97DC

"Another source of power in government is a military force. But this, to be efficient, must be superior to any force that exists among the people, or which they can command; for otherwise this force would be annihilated, on the first exercise of acts of oppression. Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive."
-- Noah Webster
(1758-1843) American patriot and scholar, author of the 1806 edition of the dictionary that bears his name, the first dictionary of American English usage.
Defined the militia similarly as "the effective part of the people at large."
Source: An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, Philadelphia, 1787

"Constitutions are checks upon the hasty action of the majority.
They are the self-imposed restraints of a whole people
upon a majority of them to secure sober action and
a respect for the rights of the minority."
-- William Howard Taft
(1857-1930) 27th US President
Source: Veto Message, Arizona Enabling Act, 1911
