Interesting series on PDBE's, thanks!   
One other note of irony for you!  
Beds and Couches and Easy Chairs do not normally burst in to flame and kill people.  In fact it is not so easy to set them on fire. Why the focus on fire-proofing them?   The easiest way to set fire to furniture is to drop a cigarette laced with potash into a it.    The Potash is there so a cigarette won't go out when you stop smoking it.   Convenient for the smoker, lethal for the 2nd hand smoker, and obviously a good way to sell more cigarettes.    Potash is also traditionally used in fuses for bombs because it sustains a small fire.  
So the health problems of PDBE's are yet-another health impact of smoking!  -carlp

Tue, Aug 21, 2007      7:30 pm Film — KOYAANISQATSI (Life out of Balance)
By the filmmaker who later p
Humanist Hall 390 27th St @ Telegraph and Broadway Oakland
The title of this film is a Hopi Indian word meaning "life out of balance." The film was ceated between 1975 and 1982 as an apocalyptic vision of the collision between two different worlds: urban life, dependent on technology, versus the natural environment that all life depends on.
So often we perceive our world, our way of living, as beautiful because there is nothing else to perceive. In our globalized world of high technology, all we can see is one layer of commodity piled upon another. The "original" is the proliferation of the standardized. Copies are copies of copies. There is almost no ability to see beyond, to see that we have encased ourselves in an artificial world that has remarkably replaced the original, nature itself. We do not live with nature any longer; we live above it, but off of it. Nature has become the resource to keep our artificial, new world alive.
$5 donations accepted. Before and after the film, everyone's invited to indulge in our Humanist Tea House.

Sat Aug 25: Really Really Free Market Noon-Dusk Dolores Park
A Really Really Free Market is like a potluck for whatever you want to give or take away. Have you ever brought one dish to a potluck and gone away with a full belly and a balanced meal? Everybody brings something and goes away with more.
We all have skills, ideas, objects, smiles, talents, friendship, excitement, discussions, and many other things to share. If we bring them all together at the Really Really Free Market, we can provide more balanced and full lives for everyone. As a community we have many more resources than we do as individuals. If we share our resources we won't need to buy as many new ones. This uses fewer of the Earth's resources, and fewer of our working hours, leaving us more time to devote to ourselves and our communities. Would we all work forty hours a week at one job if we didn't feel we had to? What if instead we worked at improving our individual skills and talents and shared them with each other? We would all spend more time doing things we enjoyed. The Really Really Free Market is an attempt to put these ideas into practice for four hours every month and then spread the seeds everywhere - share, share, share.
Please help us keep the Really Really Free Market a 100% FREE and non-commercial event. Once a month, let's come together and forget about trading, bartering and money. Leave the business cards at home and remember the joy of giving for the sake of giving. Help us keep Art SF clean. If no one takes what you brought, please bring it home with you.

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.

Mon Aug 27 Green Gorilla Lounge @ Sunset: BUGHOUSE CHESS! 10:00 and Habitat

One last note: you'll be glad to hear that the Placement Team has 
scheduled a Lunar Eclipse for your viewing pleasure.
Monday the 27th (actually the early morning of Tuesday, August 28th)
1:51am  partial eclipse begins
2:52am  total eclipse begins
4:22am  total eclipse ends
5:24am  partial eclipse ends
(all times Pacific Daylight Time)

here is a web site for info on the eclipse:

Dark Side Of The Moon Poetry Slam and Pink Ffloyd Pajama Party Monday, 10 pm to 5 am
Come out, come out and express your wildly creative muse with Silicon Village for a poetry slam, dance party and lunar ritual in celebration of the full lunar eclipse. Gather at the HotD stage and Coyote Bar on the Silicon Village Plaza at 10 pm to wax poetic. At midnight we gather on art cars and bikes in front of the SV Archway for a convoy to the trash fence, where we'll hook up with the Playa-wide dance party. Noise permitting, we break at the apex of the eclipse for a moon celebration and ritual, led by the Temple of All Gods. Wear your pajamas to bounce and boogie on our furry air-mattresses.

There is going to be a total lunar eclipse on the night of the 27th of
August and the very early morning of August 28th. It should start about
11:00 to 12:00 PM on the 27th and end about 3:AM on the 28th.  We will be
able to see the entire eclipse at the Burning Man event.  This will be the
first ever total lunar eclipse at the event.
Here is a link to a site that explains the timing of the total lunar eclipse


 Full moon:  Monday night- Tuesday morn August 28 at 2:35 a.m.  So the 
sky will be bright in Black Rock City, except for the therefore even 
more spectacular...

Monday night- Tuesday, August 28, 2007:
TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE in Black Rock City.  1:51 am-5:24 am PDT, with 3:37 
am = mid-eclipse.  BRC just makes it into the 'All Eclipse Visible' zone...
August's lunar eclipse is well-placed for North and South America as 
well as the Pacific, eastern Asia and Australia. All of North America 
will witness some portion of the eclipse, but western observers are 
favored. The early umbral phases will be in progress at moonset for 
observers in Maritime Canada. From the eastern USA, the Great Lakes 
region and Ontario, the Moon sets in total eclipse. Only observers to 
the west of the Rockies (including Alaska) will be treated to the entire 
event. All phases of the eclipse are also visible from islands of the 
Pacific Ocean, New Zealand and eastern Australia.

RhythmWaves Total Lunar Eclipse Dance Event 
12:30 to 3:30 am August 28 (Monday night / Tuesday morning) 

Late Friday night-Early Sat morning Aug 31- Sep. 1:
Aurigids, a rare and spectacular meteor shower will be peaking at 4:36 
a.m. in the east- north eastern skies.  Visible from Nevada.  It will 
last about 1.5 hours.   Best to watch between 4 and 5 am, with up to 160 
Aurigids meteors per hour.
This very rare shower will occur again on 1 September 2007. A brief 
shower of tens of meteors will radiate from the constellation of Auriga, 
many as bright as the brighter stars in the sky. The Earth will be in 
the thick of it during the one hour centered on 04:36 a.m. PDT. The 
shower will be visible by the naked eye from locations in the western 
United States.
Best viewing: Keep Moon out of field of view (best to block behind 
obstruction such as telephone pole, then watch whole sky), avoid city 
haze that scatters moonlight
Best direction: East and Northeast
Best time: Start one hour before peak, then see the rate of meteors 
increase and decrease while Earth travels through the shower

     Our Survival Guide reminds you that Burning Man's remoteness doesn't 
give us a free pass to live outside the law. Burning Man supports all 
local and federal laws, and expects you to uphold them during your time 
in Black Rock City. There are representatives from five Law Enforcement 
agencies in our fair town, and you should be aware of their presence and 
how to interact with them when you meet.
   We consider Black Rock City a peaceful community...and we love to see it 
stay that way.
   Here's the Survival Guide page on the matter:
   A participant shared this video with us to share with you. It's called: 
"Busted: the Citizen's Guide to Surviving a Police Encounter (US)".  The 
former head of the ACLU narrates.
