Thu Dec 21 Winter Solstice

Last Vigil of the Year at UCSF - December 21, 4:30 PM Dear Advocates for Animals:

The year's last Vigil for animals incarcerated and exploited in laboratory experiments at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) will be held on the 3rd Thursday of the month (as usual) - December 21, 4:30 PM till about 6 PM. This will be a candlelight vigil (we have candles, so nobody needs to bring any unless they feel like it). However, participants can feel free to bring their own signs, as well a short poem or prose to recite, as we will close the Vigil with a reading of prose/poetry regarding individuals of other species and/or our relationships with them.

The Vigil will be held at UCSF's Parnassus Campus at 513 Parnassus Avenue in San Francisco. If anyone needs directions on how to get there or has any questions, they can e-mail vigilforanimals @ or call 415-751-3756.

Note Regarding Public Transportation: If you would like to take public transportation to UCSF, the San Francisco Muni buses #6 and #43 both go right by the Vigil's venue on Parnassus Avenue; also you can take the N-Judah streetcar, get off at Carl & Arguello streets, and take the elevator (going up) within the UCSF facility to get to Parnassus Avenue. If you are coming from the East Bay, you can take BART, get off at any stop between Embarcadero and Civic Center in San Francisco, and then take an N-Judah streetcar going outbound (and follow directions above regarding N-Judah streetcar).

Launch party for the up and coming lead designer of Eco Couture,
Kashi Stone
this Thursday, December 21st.

On Thursday, December 21st, in Mill Valley at....
Famous For Our Look
96 Throckmorton, Mill Valley 388.2550
All day into the evening

Located in the heart of Mill Valley, across from the Depot,
Famous For Our Look hosts the launch of
Kashi Stone Eco Couture.
Serving champagne and a great selection of fashion for last minute gift shopping.

What makes Kashi Stone Fashion stand out from the rest of the fashion designers
is that it is fashion with a cause.

It is "beauty giving back to the planet".

There is an educational theme that informs the consumer about select
environmental causes linked with the fashion. For instance, the couture
clothing line, which is inspired by the beauty and grace of mermaids, gives proceeds
to a few select ocean preserves.
see: http:/

The faux fur couture focuses on five endangered jungle cats. The coats are designed to compliment the animals but are not intended to duplicate the actual pelts of real fur.
The idea is to conjure the playful spirit of the feline and to celebrate its nature. Jungle preserves that focus on maintaining and preserving habitats for these species are discussed on the website.

In addition, most of the fabric used in the couture line is made of hemp. Hemp is becoming, more and more, a mainstream textile as agricultural considerations are taking precedence in environmental issues, especially related to conventional cotton farming. Conventional cotton farming requires almost half of the pesticides and herbicides used in the US.

As a textile, hemp is a long lasting fabric that stands up to repeated washing, maintaining its quality and longevity. Hemp also requires no ironing -making it the ideal travel garment.

More information regarding the uses of hemp and its ability to assist in environmental causes as a beneficial agricultural plant can be found here:

I encourage you to join the revolution in fashion consumer awareness and research how the fashion industry is affecting our planet. It is astounding how much of a difference it would make on our planet if we began farming hemp instead of deforestation. Conventional cotton farming and plastic manufacturing – yes – hemp can replace all of that abundantly, generously and with love.

In these very important times with serious environmental afflictions, we cannot continue to partake in blind, brainwashed consumerism. It is imperative that we continue to support and encourage those who have taken the lead in planetary transformation and healing, find alternative resources and continue to educate ourselves on how to become better planetary stewards.

When the newspapers are filled with fear, devastation, greed and demise, it is refreshing to read and learn about individuals or groups who are making a positive difference on our planet. I would like to share with you a wonderful organization that is providing information and support to those groups who are making a difference globally – Earth Island Institute. I encourage you to support them and check out their links.

Join us on Thursday, as we launch a new fashion statement, support a great cause and grab the last minute gift at

12/22: Life of Mammals (oakland downtown)

Friday, December 22 at 7:30 pm

Humanist Hall 390 27th Street
midtown Oakland, between Telegraph and Broadway, below Pill Hill

by David Attenborough

This documentary is pure magic. A lot of thought went into its content -- from spectacular visuals to awesome sound and content structure. It reveals how intricate the web of life on this planet is and how threatened it is. From deer-like rodents in Patagonia whose activities seem to confuse a nearby burrowing owl (whose burrow the Maras had snatched) to a female Leopard sneaking into a rural village in India to steal domestic goats because its natural prey base was scarce. From bizarre (platypus), to large (whales), tiny (harvest mice), blind (golden mole), fast (cheetah), slow (sloth), to the ones that fly (bats) -- this documentary covers the entire spectrum of mammals in stunning visuals and captivating narration. The filmmaker, David Attenborough, is thorough and scientifically accurate. His screen presence is comforting and his lifetime of experience ensures that the content is seamless and exciting. He is able to show us firsts: new behavior and discoveries, sometimes even new animals. What distinguishes mammals from other animals is their ability to adapt. The documentary goes into incredible depth about all the different intricacies of the mammals’ lives and how they coexist with each other and humans. It is perhaps the best wildlife documentary ever made. And it stands as a great proof of evolution. Although the film never comes right out and specifically talks about evolution, it is a subtext throughout the film. The mechanics of evolution are so clear that it would be hard to question evolution after watching this film.

Before and after the films, everyone’s invited to indulge in our Humanist Tea House

"My religion consists of a humble admiration
of the illimitable superior spirit
who reveals himself in the slight details
we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind."
-- Albert Einstein
(1879-1955) Physicist and Professor, Nobel Prize 1921

"The most incomprehensible thing about the world
is that it is comprehensible."
-- Albert Einstein
(1879-1955) Physicist and Professor, Nobel Prize 1921

"A human being is a part of the whole, called by us, "Universe," a part
limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and
feelings as something separated from the rest -- a kind of optical delusion
of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting
us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to
us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our
circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of
nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the
striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a
foundation for inner security."
-- Albert Einstein
(1879-1955) Physicist and Professor, Nobel Prize 1921

Sir Walter Scott, Theodore Roosevelt, Walter Goodman

"O, what a tangled web we weave,
when first we practice to deceive!"
-- Sir Walter Scott

"No people is wholly civilized where a distinction is
drawn between stealing an office and stealing a purse."
-- Theodore Roosevelt
(1858-1919) 26th US President

"Corruption is no stranger to Washington; it is a famous resident."
-- Walter Goodman

"The Capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them."
-- Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
[Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov] (1870 - 1924), First Leader of the Soviet Union

"Characteristically, however, the overthrow of the dictator
simply means that there will be another dictator. ...
the policies they follow will probably not be radically different.
If we look around the world, we quickly realize that these policies
will not be radically different from those that would be followed
by a democracy either."
-- Gordon Tullock

"I am what I have always been:
the last Renaissance man,
if I may be allowed to say so."
-- Hermann Goering
(1893-1946) Commander-in-Chief of the Luftwaffe, President of the Reichstag, Prime Minister of Prussia and, as Hitler's designated successor, the second man in the Third Reich. [Göring]
