So in a disaster you do not want to touch the water in a building heater / radiator system.




NASA: Forest on the Threshold
http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Study/BorealThreshold
"Something big is happening in the high latitudes," says Rama Nemani,
a research scientist at NASA Ames Research Center, in response to the
papers that Goetz and Angert published within weeks of each other.
Nemani was on the research team that initially noticed that the Arctic
was beginning to green in response to global warming in the 1990s.
Despite the previous discovery, Nemani wasn't surprised that Northern forests
now seem to have slowed their growth. After all, the same theories that
predicted that global warming would increase forest growth in the Arctic,
theories that Nemani helped prove, also predicted that the forests would
eventually reach the limits of the water supply and go into decline. "We
knew something like this would happen," Nemani says. "We didn't
expect that it was going to happen so quickly."

# From: Rev Billy and The Church of Stop Shopping <Bulletin [at] revbilly.com>
Subject: Rapture Interruptus Revival! Bay Area 4/26-5/01 Bulletin at revbilly.com
http://www.revbilly.com

The Rapture Interruptus Revival
April 26 - May 1 In Northern California

The fundamentalist plan – "The Rapture" – is now in progress. People are vanishing, yanked up into another world. These believers are disappearing into SUV's, idling between super malls. They believe, though, with the Playstations in their dashboards, that their Ford Expeditions are climbing straight up cliffs and jumping fjords and running with wolves. That's Heaven's final ad campaign: Consumers on pixilated interstates up Mount Everest. Those of us left behind will die in the Hell and rising Floods of the over-heating planet.

Children, welcome to the The Rapture Interruptus Revival - we shall hit the Rapture right where it hurts. We shall slam the Rapture into Reverse. We shall sing "Stop Shopping" between the consumer and the car – catching them in the Parking Lot Of No Return. We plan a new kind of performance art, a curving choreography designed for on-ramps. Exorcisms of Bad Traffic are now being taught in 24 hour all-night shifts at the Slow Consuming School of Divinity…

--WE RELY ON WORD OF MOUTH! PLEASE FORWARD TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY IN THE BAY AREA--

# Battles Thursday, April 27 7:00pm- 10:00pm free

National Product is pleased to announce a solo exhibit of Sacha
Eckes' recent artwork.
To many, November 2nd, 2003 was a crazy day. George Bush was reelected.
Sacha started to express her struggle to understand a world so out of
whack. She started to write her feelings down on paper napkins. And
in doing so she wanted to create a sounding board for others to
process their emotions.

Miss Eckes is ultimately an optimist. She draws with a sense of
humor, albeit a dark one. Her references to war and to our daily
struggles aren't literal but rather they attempt to grasp what's
going on in this world on a visceral level.

On exhibit will be the paper napkins; also on display a series of
small studies of skeletons; a series of zombie inspired drawings; and
finally a selection of larger drawings in which many elements are
inspired by Goya's Disasters of War.
Advisory: Graphic violence, some sexual content.

Sacha Eckes notes zombies, Gary Larson, Goya and Philip Guston as
some of her inspirations.

Sacha was born and pretty much raised in Belgium. She studied
printmaking and moved to San Francisco in 1993. She is a weekly
contributor to the SF Chronicle with her Life is Good single panel
comic. http://www.sfgate.com/columnists/eckes/
She is an arts curator at 111 Minna Gallery and she installs art for
the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and the Oakland Museum.
She has exhibited at The Luggage Store Gallery, The Lab, Low Gallery
and New Image Art Gallery in Los Angeles.
To see more of her work go to http://www.sachaeckes.com

An art gallery in the back and a gift store in the front, National
Product is an eclectic mix of original art and goods made by cottage-
industry designers and artists. The Galllery at NP is a small, 2-
room, gallery with changing monthly shows. In front of the gallery is
the store with a regularly changing mix of goods including small,
less formal, shows from local artists.

At the Center for Sex & Culture, 398 11th Street at Harrison

Creatively make sustainable partnerships between business and non-governmental organizations that help people with AIDS, do HIV education, and in other ways address the topic of HIV in the work they do. In what ways can we gain more than heightened consciousness from this "marriage"? Help make social change happen in new ways that result in win-wins for everyone.

Up to two people per organization welcome. $10--20 donation suggested, but no one turned away. RSVP by April 19 to mariastevnbak [at] kaospilot.dk (or call 917-495-0092).

The Kaospilots are visiting from an international creative business school based in Copenhagen.

(Other Kaospilots groups are working with other issues and organizations throughout the Bay Area this spring.) While they introduce us to their unique practice and facilitation skills, we'll have the opportunity to connect with each other anew, or for the first time. For more about Kaospilots philosophy see

# Cage-Free Outreach at Andronico's

Andronico's Market sells battery eggs eggs from hens who are confined indoors within battery cages, with as many as eight hens per cage. Recently, East Bay Animal Advocates documented shocking conditions at the egg supplier for Andronico's - NuCal Foods, Inc. The undercover footage (available at http://www.cal-eggs.com) shows intensive confinement of chickens.

In an effort to raise the public s awareness about the inhumane treatment of hens raised for eggs, East Bay Animal Advocates on a weekly-basis is distributing informative literature to Andronico's shoppers. Event information for this week:

Date: Friday, April 28 Time: 6 PM
Location: Andronico's, 1850 Solano Avenue, Berkeley

To advance the company s commitment to excellence, EBAA is asking Andronico's to adopt a cage-free egg policy. Several retailers, including Whole Foods Market and Wild Oats Natural Marketplace, have already adopted policies to carry only cage-free eggs.

# April 28th 9pm Cell Space 9pm 2050 Bryant @ 18th / 19th St. http://cellspace.org
There is a 24 acre plot of land across the lake from New Orleans. It is 200 ft above sea level, in a rural setting. The window of opportunity to buy this land is narrow. We need $15,000 to hold the land for 60 days, or $50,000 to make a down payment. The land comes with a solid business that will allow us to pay it off in several years. This land will be held in common by our non-profit as gathering space for the purpose of skill development, education and spreading resources. Donations of any size will be helpful, but the best way to see this happening fast is to find 100 people who can contribute $500. We can't much about it until we have the $15,000 to hold the land.
April 28th I'll be at Cell Space in San Francisco, presenting images and video to share what I've witnessed here on the Gulf Coast over the past 7 months. The presentation will only be a half hour, from 9pm to 9:30pm. as it is an opening to a dance party that follows... as the official after-party of the New Living Expo. Tickets are $20, and funds raised go to the Action Hero Network.

Be Part of the Solution. Walk Against Rape.
April 29, 2006

Join us as communities from all over San Francisco will walk in
solidarity to raise awareness around sexual assault while also
raising money to support the only community rape crisis center in the
county. Walk with your friends, pets, family and friends and speak

walk, along with the clothesline project, music and prizes for the
highest fundraiser, and other organizations offering resources and
information.

Time: 10:00-2:00pm.
Start point: Meet us at Mission Street and Embarcadero! We begin
walking at 10:30. Bring your sponsorship money and registration form
the day of, and you are all set!

Destination: Mission Dolores Park, where a rally/gathering will take
place.

Fundraising tips:
There is no minimum that you have to raise, though many people have
set their goals at $250. That can be very easy if you ask ten people
(friends, coworkers, family) to sponsor you at $25 each. Get a Walk t-
shirt by raising $50!
You can email Janet for a sponsorship/registration form and for any
other fundraising support, such as a letter to send to your folks.
Sponsors can make checks payable to San Francisco Women Against Rape
(SFWAR), with your name in the memo. Bring sponsorship money along
with your registration form to the beginning of the Walk and you're
all set! Let your sponsors know, they can donate online through our
homepage. Click on the link at the top that says Donate Now!, and

# Really Really Free Market Saturday April 29th!
The Really Really Free Market will be starting again, beginning with Saturday April 29th. As it was last year, it will be from noon to 4 in Dolores Park, S.F. Come on out and celebrate the 1 year anniversary of the RRFM in dolores park, and the end of the nonstop rain!

We will be setting up a new email discussion list for people who are interested in being involved with working on organizing the rrfm beyond the day of the event itself (things like flyering, brainstorming new ideas for things we would like to see at the rrfm, etc.) If you are interested in being on this list, email me at rsykes1710 at yahoo.com and let me know.

Also, the website is down due to domain name issues, but it is being worked on.

What is The Really REALLY Free Market?

It's like a large community-wide garage sale, except everything is
FREE! Yes, that's right, FREE! Everyone is invitied to bring things to GIVE
AWAY!

So this is like bartering or trading, right?
Nope. Bartering and trading go something like this:
I've got this great shirt here, what can you offer me for it?

The RRFM goes something like this: I've got this really great shirt
here. I don't really wear it anymore, but I'd hate to see it go to waste.
Do you want it? Great! Here, it's yours!

Why would i want to do a thing like that?
Because you have to many things already! Because you're just going to
throw it away anyway. Because it FEELS GOOD!
Do you have things cluttering up your home? Maybe some stuff that you
don't use anymore, but you know that someone else would probably love.
One person's trash can truly be another person's treasure!

What should I bring?
Bring *your thing* to the RRFM, whatever that is! Material goods, food
or drinks, a service to provide, a skill you have that you want to
teach to others, a performance, or anything else!

What if I don't have anything to give away?
Everyone has something to give to others. The RRFM isn't just about
giving away *stuff.* What is it that you do? Why not come to the RRFM and
find a way to do it for others, except this time for free just for the
fun of it. As a gift to others, as a gift to yourself. It's a way of
reclaiming meaning in your job, to give it as a gift, unmediated by
commerce.

Who runs the RRFM?
Well, the RRFM consists of the sum of its participants. The gift you
bring to the event, helps create what the event is for others, just as
what others bring to the event, creates what the event is for you.

That said, there are some folks who came together to help create the
structure for the RRFM to work. But it is our hope that soon enough, our
role within the RRFM will be the same as everyone else's. That is, that
each of us decides our own level of involvement.

The RRFM is yours! Take advantageous of that. Make it what you want it
to be! If you want to see something happening at the RRFM that isn't
already happening, than make it happen! If you want to see more people
coming to the RRFM, help spread the word! Send emails to your friends,
make and distribute flyers (make your own or download them from the
website), talk to people about the RRFM.
----

Please help us keep the RRFM 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 Dolores Park clean. If no one takes what you brought,
please bring it home with you.

If you like what you just read, get involved! Come to the RRFM! Bring
your own gifts to share! Spread the info, and get more people involved!
The RRFM takes YOU to make it happen.


# I am happy to be a presenter at this upcoming event. They seem like a great
community that has a great intersection of communities within it. Not only
that, but FUN seems to be an integral part of the experience. Can't beat
that with a stick.
Well...I guess you could, but it would be weird. Like peas in your penne
pasta. Weird.
Oh yeah--it is at One Taste, your urban retreat in SF. Jason

# A Mighty Ruckus at Islais Creek Sat April 29 2p-10p FREE

San Francisco's local, non-profit, independent arts fixture, SF
IndieFest, announces its next event: the next edition of the bi-
annual rock and film street festival, A MIGHTY RUCKUS AT ISLAIS CREEK.

The Mighty Ruckus music and film festival will take place Saturday,
April 29 from 2p-10p at the Bay Area Motor Club, located at 1598
Custer Ave (near Third and Evans) in the industrial-fabulous Bayshore
district. The event will feature 12 bands on two stages (an Outdoor
Stage and The Rambler Stage, a stage built out of a panel truck), a
screening room for short films and videos, a rock poster art show, a
DJ lounge and a classic/custom car show.

The event is all ages and free to the public.

The lineup includes the bands Fabulous Disaster, Simon Stinger, The
Black Furies, The Insaints (LA) , Fleshies, Gooferman, Three Weeks
Clean, The Grannies, Lou Lou and the Guitarfish, Sloatbucket, The
Teenage Harlots and the Casey Neill Band from Portland.

"We have a great cross section of Bay Area rock n roll on display
that weekend" says festival founder Jeff Ross. "From the teenagers in
The Guitarfish to 80's punk legends The Insaints on a reunion tour."

In the DJ Lounge will be: Skip (New Wave City), Jenny Fake (Suicide
Club/Fake), Monkey (Pirate Cat Radio), Fletcher (Club ID), Fernando
(Rock of Ages), Tony (Drinks with Tony), Donimo (Shadowlounge), and
Hick Smokey (Drunken Monkey Lounge).

The screening room will be curated by SF IndieFest, Microcinema
International, Killing My Lobster's Hi/Lo Festival, Another Hole in
the Head and the Brainwash Film Festival.

Local artist Chris Shaw is curating the rock poster art show. Artists
involved are to be announced but the artists will be present at the
event.

To be in the car show, bring a pre-69 classic or custom down to the
festival by 2p. In addition to the rock star parking, everybody in
the car gets free food/drink tix!

The event is sponsored by Live 105, The Bay Guardian, and The Bay
Area Motor Club. Pirate Cat Radio will live broadcast the entire
festival the day of the event on the air and online.

The first Mighty Ruckus at Islais Creek took place Sept 17, 2005 and
featured the bands Plastination, The Copper Tones, Riot A Go Go,
Radio Noise, Smash-up Derby, New Model Army (from the UK), Babyland
(LA), and F-Space. The screening room was curated by IndieFest,
MIcrocinema, Other Cinema, and the Found Footage Festival from
Brooklyn. The DJs were from some of the hottest rock n roll dance
clubs in the city. Over 500 people attended.

"It's kind of like the unwashed, black-sheep cousin of Coachella,"
continues Ross. He describes the Mighty Ruckus as the perfect
alternative to the big-dollar outdoor fests: "You could pay $165 to
go to Coachella with a couple hundred thousand sweaty teenagers, or,
you could come right down to Third and Evans, and enjoy some of the
best Bay Area bands for free."

The next Mighty Ruckus is scheduled for September 23, 2006.

# Press Release/Announcement - Demo/protest at Lantos office 4/29/06
Call to action:   Sidewalk picketing, speakers, and –
The Raging Grannies! Saturday, April 29th, 2006 from 3:00 to 4:30 PM
In front of Congressman Tom Lantos’ San Mateo office,
400 S. Ell Camino Real – corner of 4th & El Camino Real
 
Two specific issues will be featured in this protest/demonstration

(1)    STOP THE SENSELESS PUNISHMENT OF PALESTINIANS –

“NO” to House Resolution 4681

Tom Lantos is one of the original three sponsors of HR4681 – the so-called, “Palestinian Anti-terrorism Act of 2006.”  This legislation is designed to further punish the Palestinian people as retribution for their having used their democratic right to vote for Hamas. This act severely restricts all much needed aid to the Palestinian people from both the European Union and various U.S. aid agencies.  According to Jewish Voice for Peace, passage of this bill “…will lead to desperation and rage and will therefore greatly increase the insecurity of Israelis.”  For more information, see: http://jewishvoiceforpeace.org/publish/printer_453.shtml <http://jewishvoiceforpeace.org/publish/printer_453.shtml> .  
 
(2)    NO ATTACK ON IRAN --

Tom Lantos, as Chairman of the important House “International Relations Committee,” has undoubtedly been briefed on the Pentagon’s contingency plans for bombing—possibly nuclear bombing—of certain sites inside Iran which are related to nuclear fuel   production.  Lantos has seemingly not even entertained the idea that U.S. strikes on suspected Iranian nuclear facilities could very possibly be the precursor to a WW III.  More moderate voices must be heard in both of the above instances.  Negotiations must be pursued rather than more punishment, more destruction and more killing.
 
Peace activists from throughout the bay area will be notified of this demonstration sponsored by Peace Action of San Mateo County in cooperation with other peace and justice organizations.

This Sunday, we are on!! The weather seems to be getting nicer and nicer throughout the week. SO, let's do this.
Get your friends out of the house and come on down as we really bring in some fun in the sun. More info and directions on Friday. Spread the word and we'll see you all this Sunday...

# April 30th Hula Hooping in Dolores Park in our usual spot (between 19th & 20th st, and
between the playground & the street) from 2-5 pm. This will also mark the 3 YEAR
ANNIVERSARY OF BAH.( Look for more info on this soon) we're hoping for a huge turnout for
this day.

On May 7th everyone head over to the annual How Weird Faire located at 12th St & South Van
Ness. It'll be happening from noon to 8pm. It's $5 donation in costume, $10 if not. check out
howweird.org for more info and maps. I also heard that theres a mermaid parade happening
earlier that ends up at the faire, which you should consider even though it may not be ideal
hooping conditions.

So where do you want to hoop now that the rain has ended? Know any good spots? Post your
suggestions on here or on tribe!(preferably on tribe)

NAKED in SF!

I am participating in this because I wish to live in a free country.

In a free county, in a civilized country, you will not suffer religious oppression or people forcing you to put your clothes on.

This is a very important 1st ammendment struggle.
And we've already won in SF!
The SF District Attorney has stated:
"There is no law against being naked in San Francisco unless you are lewd or blocking traffic."

# *FLASH* Mob Sun April 30 2:00pm- 2:45pm FREE

*FLASH* Mob Vernal RE-birth M'aidez!
Feeling conflicted? Disgusted by this regime's war on freedom, sex  
and everything else? Want to embrace the joy and passion of spring?  
Feel the need to get some things off your chest, and other places?  
Looking for some open, bare stripped-down creative expression? Need a  
little help feeling good in your skin?
*FLASH* Mob will be on April 30th so as not to conflict with the  
political actions on the 1st. (Support the anti-immigration law strike!)

Its a playful protest against the infringements on our sexual freedom!
It's a declaration of our sense of honesty, acceptance, openness and  
fun
We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
