Why do we prize war over education? By Len Greenwood
nce again, the Corporate War Machine is fed. We just approved $59 billion for Iraq and Afghanistan. Fifty-nine billion to line the pockets of the corporate war bosses, corrupt Afghan government officials and warlords. Can you name a village or province in Afghanistan that your tax dollars have gone to support? Once more, public education in is on the chopping block. Santa Rosa city schools are taking another $6 million in cuts, with the new projection of a possible $13 million of additional budget cuts in 2011â€“2012. Can you name a school or district that is taking a direct hit in funding? Anyone see a problem here? We have become a country of corporate war, which we export throughout the world, in order to control the natural resources we so covet from other nations. Enough lies and delusions. Our military has become the security force for the corporate war machine and the globalization cartel. We have witnessed the deterioration of our countryâ€™s infrastructure, the pollution and destruction of our natural ecosystems, the demise of our economy and a decades-long butchering of our public education system. Dropout rates across America are more than 30 percent. In California, dropout rates are well over 40 percent in the Latino community. Talented, intelligent, motivated critical thinkers are leaving our schools. I write as a concerned high school instructor and advocate for our children and their future. I am proud to teach in the Santa Rosa city schools, and I am privileged to work with an incredibly talented and caring teaching staff and administration. Throughout this county and this nation, there are teaching professionals who spend countless hours attempting to bring the best possible education to their students, under extreme difficulties, mostly due to annual funding cuts to exceptional programs and schools. At Montgomery High School two years ago, we started the Green Technology Pathway, an intensive three-year, academic/ vocational program intended to teach and train a group of youth in sustainability, green building and design, alternative energy, organic agriculture, land management
restoration and regeneration, and environmental and human rights, with an emphasis on social equity. Our students are learning and training to become leaders in the New Green economy and workforce. Across California and this nation, there are thousands of students who are â€œhandsonâ€? learners. These are the carpenters, electricians, designers, landscapers, solar installers and the builders of the future. These are the future adults who may save our planet. Unless they are given the opportunity to learn and train and develop skills in these areas of instruction, they may be the dropouts of tomorrow. We must pay attention to this student population and their needs. The elimination of vocational arts programs has led to the direct and deliberate alienation of an entire group of students. When school districts are forced by federal law and underfunding to eliminate the very classes that keep students engaged, we undermine our own future. We are destroying the possibilities that one or more of these wonderful human beings might have a solution to a major problem in the world. In essence, the very people who may save our communities from past destructive practices are robbed of the chance to learn the necessary lessons they need to succeed as leaders of the earth community. If we do not draw a line in the sand, if the public does not stand with the students and educators and demand that the education of our youth become the top priority of this nation, I fear we will witness an entire generation of young adults who will be lost and angry. Education is the first casualty of war. Itâ€™s time to choose: The education of our youth or corporate war for profit? How will you answer when they ask, â€œWhy didnâ€™t you help? Why didnâ€™t you care enough?â€? Stand up, show up for our youth and education, in all schools, for all children of the world.
Weâ€™ve approved $59 billion for wars while schools in just one district are looking at a $19 million shortfall.

should have a chance, but when your attitude is such as I stated above, you donâ€™t belong here.
People like the 20-year-old student should be allowed to substantiate her legality (â€œStatus Update,â€? Open Mic, Aug. 18). The ones I personally am against are those who work here under the table and then send their earnings back to Mexico and do not pay any taxes on their earnings. You and I are the ones picking up their tab while they take advantage of our social service system. They have free healthcare, free food and nearly free housing. I can say this because I worked with one! This person told me she didnâ€™t think it was fair that she had to pay taxes etc., because she was not going to live here forever, just until she had her home in Mexico built and substantial monies put aside for her to live! These illegal immigrants donâ€™t even have to learn our language; it is made easy for them by printing most everything in their native language! I feel everyone
H>DC7)BC8;;F0BC43>=C74H>D=6 After laughing at the genius inventions in the article â€œBong Wrongsâ€? (Aug. 18), I felt mildly outraged. I appreciate the wink writer Gabe Meline has thrown toward us, but as the fall looms, Iâ€™m thinking less about bong condoms and more about what the crap Iâ€™m going to do when college ends. I hope that, in between rips, students are wondering where to channel the idealism and brilliance that weâ€™ve been cultivating for four years. We have been cultivating brilliance, right? Because it seems there are a lot of lolling tongues aimed toward Spongebob reruns.

A lot of people treat the college years as a joke, and in some ways I would agreeâ€”but that is no oneâ€™s fault but our own. Weâ€™re suffering from a massive lack of passion, we are unaware of the thousands of possibilities slipping through our fingers like snaking blunt smoke. If you are in college, wake up and make these years count. Take hold of your education. Ask millions of questions, meet your professors, use campus resources. We should be grateful for having access to education, and if youâ€™re not, then go choose one of the other million adventures that existence offers.
0<>A4?4A542CD=8>=B The story about farmers being persecuted for hiring low-paid or unpaid labor (â€œNothingâ€™s Free,â€? Aug. 11) attempted to tug at my heartstrings. You couch the article as a story about big, bad government forcing small organic farmers to fire a volunteer farmer. I find it curious that your left-leaning publication failed to mention that this law is being aggressively enforced due to pressure from the big labor unions. These same labor unions also lobbied for regulations that prevent environmental groups from using volunteer or low-wage help to mitigate environmental damage. The Bohemian consistently casts its support toward union shills like Michael Allen, then fails to realize the unintended consequences of such support. Those consequences include the potential failure of small organic farms due to â€œcrippling violationsâ€? of regulations pushed by labor union bosses, and the inability of environmental organizations to clean up polluted waterways on limited budgets. Americans should be free to make their own choices regarding their employment, volunteerism and giving back to their community. In a perfect world, labor unions would focus on protecting the powerless, rather than interfering with our efforts to help others in need or to improve the world we live in.

New study suggests that politically engaged people are happier By Robin Petre
eople engaged in political activism are more likely to live happier and more fulfilling lives than the average person, according to two psychologists writing in a recent issue of the journal Political Psychology. â€œThere is something about activism itself that is beneficial for well-being,â€? says Tim Kasser, Ph.D., co-author of the research paper, which is based on studies of college students. â€œWe found that activists felt they had better relationships, more purpose in life and they liked themselves better.â€? Kasser teaches psychology at Knox College in Galesburg, Ill. His collaborator, Malte Klar, is a professor at the University of GĂśttingen in Germany. Activism fulfills human needs on several levels. According to the study, it satisfies oneâ€™s eudaemonic needsâ€”the need
for a sense of meaning and purpose to life. More superficially, it fulfills the hedonic need to feel pleasure. Kasser says that activism â€œdoes a fairly good job at satisfyingâ€? the four psychological needs that must be met for a person to be happy: autonomy, competence, security and connection to others. â€œI donâ€™t doubt that part of the reason activism is good for peopleâ€™s well-being is that they experience higher levels of connection to other people,â€? Kasser says. â€œWe are not trying to say that the only way to increase your wellbeing is through political activism, but we are saying that it is a good one.â€? Kasser resists the idea that activism should be a catalyst for anger. On the other hand, activism will benefit you no matter what the motivation. â€œYou can be angry about some social injustice that you see, and if you engage in activism, it may not make your anger go
away, but it seems like it provides you with other kinds of well-being, probably because you know youâ€™re trying to do something about the thing youâ€™re angry about,â€? he says. In their first two studies, Klar and Kasser measured two different kinds of activism. One is conventional activism, like marching on the street, signing a petition or writing a letter to your senator. High-risk activism, on the other hand, is engaging in radical behavior like directly confronting the police. â€œHigh-risk activism showed to be a little positive, but not nearly as positive as conventional activism, which was consistently associated with being happier,â€? says Kasser. He adds that activism is one area where the close connection between the individual and society is very clear. â€œThe data show that it may improve your well-being,â€? Kasser says. â€œ[A] thriving democracy can only survive if the people are politically active.â€?

onoma County entered this carbonconstrained era with one lucky advantage: proximity to what Dave Erickson calls â€œthe premier geothermal location in the world.â€? That is, the county is piping distance from a whole lot of energy-producing hot rocks and steam (aka the Geysers) that have been providing energy locally for close to 100 years. So far, so good. Erickson, dubbed by fellow geeks as â€œthe brains behind the Community Climate Action Plan,â€? helped develop Sonomaâ€™s energy portfolio to include geothermal power. â€œGeothermal is an enormous resource, one of the most ubiquitous and high-quality energy sources available,â€? Erikson says. â€œItâ€™s always on, compared to solar or wind which tend to be intermittent, and if properly developed, can deliver power relatively inexpensively.â€? The â€œproperly developedâ€? part is where things warm up in the social realm. But first, a brief history of on-the-job learning. In the past, geothermal resources were developed unsustainably and were spent like the steam in a kettle that goes dry after a long boil. Later the development improved; water injections into the heated rock, as in the wastewater piped to the Calpine stem fields from Santa Rosa, essentially began refilling the kettle, keeping it viable for continued steam production. Now an even more efficient and sustainable development is possibleâ€”a closed-loop system that doesnâ€™t vent the steam but contains it and generates electricity from the heat alone. According to Erickson, this system makes the geothermal resource truly sustainable. â€œYouâ€™re only maintaining the equipment of the resource,â€? he says. â€œThereâ€™s no fuel cost.â€? No fuel costs and no carbon emissions? Where do we sign up? On Aug. 31 there will be a community meeting where energy geeks will tell all, a potluck-style gathering at which a representative from Calpine will answer questions along with local climate-protection advocates. The meeting is about geothermal energy and might likely heat up quite a bit if somebody asks about the intriguing idea
Erikson described to me: a proposition that the community forms a new kind of economic partnership to boost the efficiency of the steam fields. â€œThis would be a hybrid,â€? Erickson says. â€œA kind of economic Prius, uniting local government and private industry to fund the development. Iâ€™m talking about a robust public-private partnership that combines the best of bothâ€”the public and the private sector.â€? Crazy idea. I love it. There are now 800 megawatts (MW) developed at the steam fields; another 500 MW are waiting to be developed. With carbon pricing on the horizon as result of AB 32, developing sustainable geothermal has lately become more economically feasible. Whether the community will step up to such a partnership as Erikson describes will first depend on an informed public. Thereâ€™s a lot to learn, and to learn as soon as possible; may as well find out what can be gleaned from this presentation because we know that we will be hearing the usual from PG&E. I predict PG&E will fund obfuscation efforts, maybe run a fear campaign; theyâ€™ve tried to block community-procured power in Marin and at the state ballot box. The utility will not want Sonoma County making a small-scale power agreement when PG&E would profit more from big, distant power developments for which taxpayers are slapped with transmission costs. Some power in California comes from coal-burning plants, thanks to the utilities making decisions for us. If the community steps up and takes an active role in deciding on its own energy portfolio, even to the extent of partnering to supply clean, locally produced geothermal power, Sonoma County residents will not only take a great stride toward reaching carbon reduction goals, but everyone might just enjoy having more decision-making power back where it belongsâ€”here in the community.
In the past, geothermal resources were spent like the steam in a kettle that goes dry after a long boil.
A public meeting and potluck with Calpine is scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 31, at 5:30pm. Glaser Center, 547 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa. Free. For details, call 707.525.1665, ext. 114, or write email@example.com.

Giving Facebook â€˜friendsâ€™ the axe By Daedalus Howell
redit must go to Facebook for turning â€œfriendâ€? into a verb, as in â€œFriend me on Facebook,â€? or perhaps â€œGo friend yourself,â€? should one choose to decline the invitation. When it became appended with the antonymic prefix â€œun-,â€? the new verb took its place in the New Oxford American Dictionary last November as the lexicographerâ€™s choice of â€œword of the year.â€? â€œIt has both currency and potential longevity,â€? senior lexicographer Christine Lindberg of Oxfordâ€™s U.S. dictionary program told CNN at the time. â€œIn the online social networking context, its meaning is understood, so its adoption as a modern verb form makes this an interesting choice for word of the year.â€? Of course, new entries into the lexicon canâ€™t be truly integrated into the language until some daft, first-year journalism student attempts to use it in a dreaded â€œdictionary leadâ€? ĂĄ la â€œThe New Oxford American Dictionary defines â€˜unfriendâ€™ as â€˜To remove someone as a friend on a social networking site.â€™â€? Likewise, â€œretweetâ€? is also a pitch-perfect neologism: if to â€œtweetâ€? is to post something on Twitter, then to retweet, one can easily intuit, is to repost (not to be confused with â€œriposte,â€? a fencing term used to describe an arch reply dipped in witâ€”which often accompany retweets) that tweet. Of course, â€œretweetâ€? sounds like what Elmer Fudd would say at Waterloo, but in cyberspace no one can hear you scream, so what does it matter? Long a verb in its own right, Google is said to be cooking up its own Facebook-killer, â€œGoogle Me,â€? which apparently makes oneâ€™s self-absorption sharable online with the masses you might eventually unfriend. To â€œUngoogle Meâ€? would likely be the result of an online restraining order. The fine folks at the Oxford American Dictionary will likely leave that one, well, undefined. From the get-go, public relations professionals have hitched their wagons to Facebook lest they be made irrelevant by the bumper crop of social-media marketing professionals (and otherwise) once everyone realized the platform combined the worst aspects of open-mic night and a social disease. Everyone has a shot at infecting their friends with the message;
now advertisers, corporate and individual brands and causes are considered so-lastcentury if theyâ€™re not represented on what was quaintly called â€œtheâ€? Facebook until its fateful name change in 2005. Among those trying to refract a little of the siteâ€™s limelight is Know Me Social Media Marketing, which is simultaneously based in San Diego, Calif., and Nashville, Tenn. The company, whose â€œhead geekâ€? Don Lowe could pass as a stand-in for Dan Aykroyd circa My Stepmother Is an Alien, is promoting its Facebook-inspired-brainchild â€œWorldwide 1st Annual Delete a Friend Week on Facebook.â€? Represented by a fan page on the site entitled â€œDelete a Friend Week,â€? the campaign, as of this writing, boasts 2,266 fans. â€œThis fall, fall out of touch with seven of your most annoying friends. Starting Sept. 1st, join us in deleting seven Facebook friends who drive you nuts,â€? reads the fan page. â€œMaybe itâ€™s that they never comment or maybe itâ€™s because they write posts that are 19 paragraphs. Let us know what made you decide to delete them as well.â€? The fact that joining a Facebook page while unfriending friends is akin to taking seven steps forward and one step back in terms of managing oneâ€™s online relationships hasnâ€™t seemed to bother the â€œmovementâ€™sâ€? adherents. The call to post oneâ€™s reasons for dropping people is the campaignâ€™s secret weapon: it provides a forum to justify what others might construe as an antisocial act. One can cut a cretin with a clear conscious by posting that one has tired of â€œthose people who post about their â€˜awesomeâ€™ mac & cheeseâ€? as one woman wrote. Participants arenâ€™t so much cutting friends, however, as redirecting their energies to another corner of Facebookâ€™s walled garden while bolstering a marketing companyâ€™s portfolio. That the gauge of Know Me Social Media Marketingâ€™s success lies within a body count of ended online relationships is not as peculiar as the fact that it has been so embraced prior to its official launch next week. Itâ€™s a queasy catharsis, for sure, but â€œdigital dharmaâ€? has yet to enter the dictionary. Alas, â€œfrenemyâ€? already has.

;d]Pa3aX]ZX]V Yes, itâ€™s another biodynamic wine story, but this one is moo better By Alastair Bland
n a field by a vineyard near Ukiah, a 600pound black Dexter heifer named Rita grazes in the Mendocino sun. Unknowingly, she absorbs cosmic energy through her horns and terrestrial energy through her hooves. She is placid and calm, enjoying a life that seems as sustainable as the hills. Alas, she is doomed. For in the laws of biodynamic farming, first laid down in ink almost some 90 years ago, it is written that manure composted within the hollow horn of a female cow must be spread across the fieldsâ€”and Rita is the one. She will be sacrificed to the vineyard within several years. Others have gone before her. Paul Dolan, the man who runs this 200-acre winemaking operation several miles southeast of Ukiah, buys cow horns each year from a local organic beef farmer. As ordained by the doctrines of biodynamic farming, he fills them with estate manure each November and buries them under a fir tree by the farmsteadâ€™s vegetable garden, on a bluff overlooking the Russian River Valley. In
the summer, he unearths them and in the fall disperses their contents on the appropriate day of the biodynamic calendar. For almost a decade now, Dolan, who co-owns the Mendocino Wine Company in Ukiah, has followed the often mystifying, sometimes witchy and generally peaceable principles of biodynamic farming. Rudolf Steiner, the Austrian thinker and naturalist who founded the Waldorf system of education, brained up the farming philosophy and its many unusual aspects in 1924 as a response to widespread farmersâ€™ reports of diminishing yields and productivity. The buried cow horn is the most well-known of biodynamic farmingâ€™s mandates. Less well known is the practice of filling a stagâ€™s bladder with yarrow flour and composting the sealed sack on the property, or the belief that faraway lunar and planetary cycles affect how wine will taste on a given day. â€œI was extremely skeptical in the beginning,â€? says Dolan, a man of quiet, measured words who first took to the notion of biodynamic farming in the 1990s. â€œBut I stayed with it, stayed connected.â€?
Eventually it made sense. It took faith, he says, and, indeed, the practice is a sort of dogma. Science cannot quite prove or disprove much of what biodynamic farming is based upon, but a well-tuned individual can supposedly feel it. â€œI can walk through the vineyard and feel the energy centers, the areas where the chakras heat up with vibrations,â€? Dolan explains as we drive past an invisible nucleus of energy, halfway to the highest ridge of his property. He is hosting four journalists for three days, running us through a crash course in biodynamic farming, biodynamic wine and what it all means for the future. Naturally, we have questions for him: Does this matter to consumers, who generally donâ€™t understand biodynamics? Or is it about the environment? If so, why is organic farming not enough? And why, of all things under the sun, is a cow horn required to contain the manure as it matures underground? To this latter question, Dolan says that the cow horn, in fact, may not be essential to the manure preparation process. The rules of biodynamic farming are still developing; &+ THE BOHEMIAN

they may be written in the stars, but Dolan and others are the ones writing them. Though Dolan has no plans to abandon the cow horn, some biodynamic scholars believe that it may merely be the hornâ€™s spiral shape that facilitates proper maturation of the manure. In India, Dolan tells us, farmers with a penchant against killing cows use spiralshaped clay horn molds. â€œAnd it works,â€? he says, explaining that the manure would putrefy in a vessel of the wrong shape or size; in the horn, he says, the manure gracefully evolves into an odorless, rather pleasant soil. He leads us into a cave in a hillside by the roadâ€”what he calls the â€œhobbit hut.â€? Here, in the damp and the dark, a basin of matured manure awaits dispersal across the vineyard. We each touch it; it is silky and soft as it crumbles through our fingers. The manure is supposed to enhance photosynthesis, and one hornâ€™s worthâ€”about two handfuls of the soilâ€”can affect conditions on up to five acres of land, Dolan says. To some degree, biodynamic farming can be quantified and qualified by science: Dolan once filled a small tub with conventional soil on one side and biodynamic soil on the other. He mixed earthworms into each parcel of earth. By the next day, he says, all the worms had aggregated on the biodynamic side. His winemaker, too, Mark Beaman, once sent soil samples to a lab in Oregon. Measurements found that the biodynamic soil was substantially richer, containing between 30 to 600 percent more amoebas, bacteria, nitrogen and fungi than conventional soils. More surprising is the notion that lunar and planetary cycles affect how wine tastes. This weekend is prime for winetasting: Aug. 29â€“30. It is then, believers assure, that the energies around and within us allow wines to unfold and fully reveal themselves. In September, the 3rd, the 4th and the 25th are prime days to drink wine, when the bad will taste worse and the good will taste better. On other days, the same wines might taste tight and subdued. Even big businesses have bought into the principles of the biodynamic winetasting calendar. In Britain, for example, pragmatic wine buyers at supermarket chains Tesco and Marks & Spencer taste sample wines only on â€œroot daysâ€? and â€œflower days,â€? when the wines supposedly open up and fully express what they are. For skeptics, wine may always taste just fine regardless of the time of the month. Yet biodynamic principles are hard to argue with at the environmental level. While many organic grape growers tolerate organisms in the adjacent environs and allow them to live in spite of the vineyard, biodynamic farmers often encourage the biodiversity that may encroach upon their lands. And while organic farmers may use nonpetroleumbased pesticides and fertilizers, biodynamic growers introduce nothing foreign to their properties from outside. Some even dry farm their lands, believing that water from
another valley will taint the uniqueness of a propertyâ€™s soil. In winemaking, this means perfect and pure representation of place and soil-to-sky dynamicsâ€”terroir at its truest. Biodynamic winemaking saw its start in Europe several decades ago. In America, the first wineries to adopt biodynamic farming practices did so in the 1990s. Today, Grgich, Bonterra, Joseph Phelps, Cowhorn, Brick House, Frey, DeLoach, Quivira and Paul Dolan are the major names in the local biodynamic wine community.
According to the very universe itself, Sept. 3â€“4 are excellent days to quaff wine. During our visit, we journalists help Dolan unearth a dozen cow horns filled with manure and now eight months matured. We shake the clods from each horn into a plastic bin. The composted manure will later be transferred to the hobbit hut to further mature, and eventually it will all be mixed with water and sprayed across the property, preferably early in the morning during a time of a waning moon. One of us asks if there is a reason, cosmic or earthly, that Dolan chose this spot to bury the horns? Nope, he answers. â€œItâ€™s just pretty here.â€? To the west, the hillside drops sharply into the alluvial f lats of the Russian River Valley. Streams of cars move north and south on Highway 101. More people than ever before now live in this valley, and its resources are just as limited as theyâ€™ve always been. For Dolan, who wants his children and grandchildren to continue living and farming and making wine in this place, the way he farms now is about sustainabilityâ€”though he has grown weary and wary of the term. â€œTo be able to go on doing as we are now for perpetuity,â€? he says, redefining the word from scratch. Biodynamic farming may not solve all the worldâ€™s agriculture problems, but it is a new way of thinking, Dolan says, which the world needs. â€œLook at the pace at which things are changing. In a hundred years, we are going to need to be different people.â€? Raising biodynamic foods and wines may be one important step toward true sustainability. The practice saves us water, material transport costs, and the impacts of chemical manufacturingâ€”but it wonâ€™t save Rita the cow.

>33BB>3B tudio Barndiva, the retail space adjacent to the restaurant, has played host to an interactive conceptual art piece for the entire month of August and seals the experience on Aug. 27 with a sit-down dinner. Barndiva co-owner Jil Hale compares artist Laura Parkerâ€™s A Taste of Place to the recent installation by Marina Abramovic during her retrospective at Manhattanâ€™s Museum of Modern Art. There, visitors had a choice between entering a room by walking very closely past two naked sentinels or using an unpeopled door. Once inside, they watched Abramovic share eye contact with a stranger.
Everyone stays clothed in Parkerâ€™s Taste, but participants still interact with her. In a soil tasting. Itâ€™s soil, compleatâ€” really. Parker has culled soils from various area farms, explicated their composition and stress cycles and pairs a sniff of the dampened stuff with a taste of food grown from it. The Sonoma County Museum did something similar years ago, but without the one-on-one interaction. Some folks can ďŹ nd it creepy; others, provocative. Everyone can agree, however, that sitting down and eating good things grown from good soil is a ďŹ ne way to go. Barndiva hosts a culminating experience on Friday, Aug. 27, with â€œA Taste of Place . . . At the Table,â€? an interactive dinner party/ art experience. Barndiva, 231 Center St., Healdsburg. $100. 707.431.0100. . . . Having already raised some $3 million to help feed underserved residents of Napa County, Hands Across the Valley (HAV) returns for its 17th year on Aug. 28, this year at the Ranch Winery in St. Helena. Founded by Uptown Theatre owner and area developer George Altamura in 1994â€”who was incredulous that so many were going unfed in one of the great food-producing areas of the United Statesâ€”HAV seeks to provide funds, in Altamuraâ€™s words, â€œto do something about hunger in the Napa Valley.â€? BeneďŹ ting the area Food Bank and Meals on Wheels programs, HAV also contributes to Community Action Napa Valley and helps to ďŹ ll holiday food baskets and provide vouchers for those who fall through the cracks. It also aims to provide a great evening for supporters, with comedian Rob Schneider returning to emcee the night, assisted by KVON 1440-AM morning personality Kellie Fuller and Bay Area TV host Malou Nubla. Corporate comicâ€”not a misprintâ€”Bob Sarlatte also entertains. Butch Whacks and the Glass Packs provide the dancing music, and both a buffet and sit-down dinner are available. Hands Across the Valley, Saturday, Aug. 28, from 6pm to 11pm. The Ranch Winery, 105 Zinfandel Lane, St. Helena. $200â€“$500. 707.226.6136. . . . Goat is the new chicken, particularly since chicken became the new goat, and more restaurants and chefs are praising and braising the humble Capra aegagrus hircus. To wit, the Left Bank Brasserie in Larkspur hosts a goat night on Tuesday, Aug. 31. While serving their regular menu, chef Sean Canavan has also planned a full slate of goaty goodness, including rack, loin, tenderloin, shank, shoulder and sirloin options. There will also be a ProvenĂ§al navarin stew and goat sausages available. All are served with couscous and ratatouille and are priced from $19â€“$34. Left Bank Brasserie, 507 Magnolia Ave., Larkspur. 415.927.3331.

30HB>5 5AD8CB 0=3 14AA84B bout the size of an eyeball and rough as dragon skin, the little red orb seems to stare back when sliced in half, the nut-brown pupil surrounded by translucent white ďŹ‚esh. The delicate perfume is vaguely reminiscent of rose water, cherry and pear, but mostly GewĂźrztraminer. Itâ€™s a lychee fruit, indeed a common descriptor for GewĂźrztraminer and other aromatic whites. But I couldnâ€™t remember the last time I had a lychee and probably couldnâ€™t tell it apart from a kumquat.
Most wines that we drink derive from a handful of grape varietals, while wine itself may contain thousands of different aromatic and ďŹ‚avor compounds. Having the vocabulary to describe them is not only a key part of every apprenticing wine snobâ€™s toolkit; everyone can beneďŹ t from having more to say and share about wine than â€œI know when I like it.â€? Just skip the tasting room for now, and head for the farmers market. No designated driver needed. While the tropical fruits are best found at the supermarket, now is the best time to take advantage of seasonal, ripe fruit at farmers markets, which offer a smorgasbord of samples for grazing and committing to taste memory. A recent revelation: boysenberry. When people talk about blackberry in Zinfandel, half the time boysenberry might be the better call. As for Himalayan blackberries, which surround us in all cardinal directions, their earthy, acidic character reminds me more of some French wines than the old â€œCalifornia fruit bombâ€? saw. Many wines jibe better with jam and preserve ďŹ‚avors. Try Sebastopolâ€™s Kozlowski Farms, but donâ€™t stop at apricot and strawberryâ€”the big points are scored with quince and black currantâ€”and donâ€™t overlook grape. Curiously enough, some wines are reminiscent of the humble grape. When tasting a Robert Pepi 2008 California Sauvignon Blanc ($11), I have to note its aromas of grapefruit and muskmelon, using the more general term because I havenâ€™t forayed to the Crane Melon Barn to narrow it down. The palate of sweet lemon drop ďŹ nishes puckery, like chewing on a table grape. C. Donatielloâ€™s 2008 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, Middle Reach (wine club, $28), has the perfumed quality of a basket of fresh raspberries but with darker tones of chocolate and brandied cherries, spiced with a hint of vanilla bean and . . . chicory, thanks to a memorable bag of that coffee substitute that a friend brought back from New Orleans many years ago. Rich in ďŹ‚avors of pluot and Black Tartarian cherryâ€”veriďŹ ed this June, with the lighter Queen Anne still on my listâ€”it ďŹ nishes sweet and long. Of course, thereâ€™s nothing wrong with the artiďŹ cial ďŹ‚avors that, for better or worse, are often more prominent residents in our taste memories than the real thing. If one happens to like Jolly Rancher, itâ€™s no slight to call it out, nor, necessarily, with â€œbarnyardâ€? aromas. Just be sure to sniff out the difference between that of cow, sheep and horseâ€”like a true connoisseur.

344??B8 Dr. Dean Radinâ€™s research seeks to determine human psychic phenomena.
4]cP]V[TS0c^\b Dean Radinâ€™s research suggests that all separation is illusory By Caroline Osborn
donâ€™t care too much what people think,â€? says Dean Radin, Ph.D., senior scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences. â€œIâ€™m much more interested in tracking something which I think is meaningful and which I think eventually will become more and more meaningful. Thatâ€™s what science is all about. Weâ€™re driven by curiosity.â€? Nestled in the rolling golden hills on the outskirts of Petaluma, the Institute of Noetic Sciencesâ€™ (IONS) enclave of wooden buildings almost disappears among the trees. Within one of those buildings, Radin conducts scientific experiments that question whether such seemingly fantastical abilities as telepathy, psychokinesis and precognition could actually be real. Radin works in the field of parapsychology, or research on psychic phenomena, a phrase often shortened to â€œpsi.â€? He has a masterâ€™s degree in electrical engineering and a doctorate in psychology, both from the University of Illinois. In addition to his position as senior scientist at IONS, he is an adjunct faculty member of the Department of Psychology at Sonoma State
University. His two published books, The Conscious Universe and Entangled Minds, explain his research and ideas to those without access to scientific journals. Radin has spoken at Stanford, Cambridge, Harvard and Princeton, among other universities. The New York Times Magazine wrote a profile on him. Oprah interviewed him. The public is listening. But what exactly is Radin saying? Wouldnâ€™t we all like to have paranormal powers of perception? Is this anything more than Age of Enlightenment fervor to justify secret fantasies with rationalized, scientific research? Radin would argue that there is absolutely more to it than that, and he has the laboratory data and physical theory to back up his claims.
Institutionalized â€œWhen we decided to build a lab,â€? says IONS president and CEO Marilyn Mandala Schlitz, Ph.D., â€œDean was the first person I thought of to bring in to help us.â€? Founded by astronaut Edgar Mitchell, D.Sc., whose outer-space epiphany inspired him to research inner space, IONS is one of a handful of organizations dedicated to
studying noetic sciences. Schlitz defines noetics as â€œthe science of inner knowing.â€? The institute experienced a recent bump in international attention with the publication of Dan Brownâ€™s latest thriller, The Lost Symbol. Brownâ€™s new protagonist is a noetic scientist who heads an organization eponymous with and almost identical to IONS. â€œThere were whole sections that he quotes right off our website. It was huge,â€? Schlitz says. â€œWe have gotten this year what we estimate to be 200 million media impressions.â€? Schlitz even recognized Brownâ€™s protagonist as a composite of herself, Radin and other staff members. â€œItâ€™s the forces of good and evil, and noetic science is the force of good,â€? she glows. â€œWe win out in the end.â€? Research on psi isnâ€™t all that happens on the mostly empty 200-acre IONS campus. All scientists at the institute investigate questions of consciousness, but these inquiries can belong under three main umbrella headings: extended human capacities (which includes Radinâ€™s work); consciousness and healing (mind-body medicine, meditation research); and worldview transformation (psychological research on the ways in which people navigate an increasingly ') THE BOHEMIAN

The Experiment One corner of Radinâ€™s IONS lab houses an electromagnetically sealed room in which he conducts his experiments. â€œWeâ€™re in a thermos bottle or something, electronically,â€? he says. The walls are made of steel, a layer of wood and more steel, artfully covered on the inside with soft white curtains. The metal is electronically grounded so that any electromagnetic waves that hit the outside layer are channeled down through copper spikes that are driven through the concrete foundation and four feet into the ground. Why shield subjects? Radin explains that the advantage comes into play in telepathy studies. â€œWe can be completely sure that thereâ€™s no ordinary way [the subjects] can communicate with the other person.â€? He encourages me to pull out my cell phone. I do, and sure enough, thereâ€™s no signal. â€œAll gone,â€? he sings. The exercise I try is not yet full-blown. Radin is still perfecting the controls and methodology. â€œWeâ€™re getting interesting enough results that I probably will turn it into an experiment,â€? he says. The exercise focuses on establishing a mindmatter connection between a subjectâ€™s consciousness and a plasma ball, a clear orb with bolts of electric-lilac plasma emanating from its center and touching the inner surface, their tendrils constantly in flux. Radin instructs me to place my attention inside the ball and â€œsuggestâ€? that it calm down. A webcam on the table next to the ball monitors its internal arrangement and shuttles that information to Radinâ€™s laptop. A computer algorithm analyzes the pattern and quantifies its chaos level. It then applies this number to an Indian chant track itâ€™s playing; if the orb has become more chaotic, the music gets quieter, and if it has become calmer, the music grows louder. The recorded voice of Radinâ€™s assistant, Leena Michel, comes through the laptop speakers every 20 seconds, alternately giving the instruction to concentrate and relax oneâ€™s attention. I try this experiment once with the combined efforts of Radin and Michel. Radin consults his computer and declares us statistically significant, but barely. He offers me the chance to try it on my own, since three people at once could possibly interfere with one anotherâ€™s efforts. I accept, but I am not statistically significant. Then again, I am not a frequent meditator; both Radin and Michel are.
Why Psi? Since early childhood, Radin has been fascinated by two things: science and mythology. Psi research is the perfect way to weld his interests together and conduct scientific research on phenomena that some people consider to be fantasies. â€œThe transition for me,â€? he says, â€œwas realizing, as a teenager, that this was a topic that wasnâ€™t just fairy tales but actually could be studied.â€?
Neither Radin nor anyone close to him growing up was especially psychic. Radinâ€™s interest stemmed not only from subjective reports and mythological stories, but also from a mounting volume of controlled laboratory results suggesting that this was something to be studied. But like any savvy scientist, he didnâ€™t allow the recondite nature of the subject alone to seduce him. â€œActually,â€? he says, â€œI remained a skeptic until I started doing experiments myself.â€? That opportunity arose when Radin was in graduate school. Soon after, he worked on a secret government-funded psi research program at SRI International. The easy acceptance of scientists and government officials affiliated with this project took Radin by surprise. He was used to struggling against the mainstream naysayers, but here, psi was considered common knowledge. â€œAs the way science should be, the more data you get, the more empirical results that you get, the more it begins to chip away at skepticism, because oftentimes skepticism is a kind of belief,â€? Radin says. â€œItâ€™s a negative belief. Like, â€˜I donâ€™t think I believe this because it doesnâ€™t happen to me.â€™ The only way to get over that is either to have an experience yourself or to start doing experiments where youâ€™re able to look at it under controlled conditions.â€?
Skeptics Beg to Differ Of course, not everyone is convinced. â€œItâ€™s going to happen if youâ€™re doing anything which is even mildly controversial,â€? Radin says. â€œBut thatâ€™s where the fun is! If you were working on something that was already very well understood, why bother doing that at all?â€? â€œWeâ€™re not very adept at probabilities,â€? explains Bob Carroll, Ph.D., author of The Skepticâ€™s Dictionary. â€œWe think something that happens is very improbable when it isnâ€™t, and we donâ€™t realize itâ€™s probably just a chance event.â€? Statistical significance, an experimenterâ€™s ruling that a set of data shows a strong enough trend to allay explanations of chance, most commonly falls at 0.05 percent or better. As Carroll points out, this barometer is arbitrary. Statistician Ronald Fisher chose this number at the beginning of the 20th century as a standard at which a scientist can eliminate chance, and it has remained the most conventional measure ever since. Carroll challenges this percentage as reasonable for the number of data points Fisher worked with 100 years ago, but inadequate for the millions of data points Radin and his colleagues manipulate. Carroll remembers reading about one of Radinâ€™s experiments in which Radin asked subjects to attempt to mentally influence a machine to return a specific one of two possible results. According to Carroll, Radin did some 14 million trials over a period of seven years and found that subjects performed at a 50.02 percent success rate when 50.00 percent would have been expected by chance. â€œThe only reason itâ€™s statistically significant is because you have 14 million trials,â€? Carroll says. â€œIf you had a 0.02 difference with 14 trials, it wouldnâ€™t be significant. So it just doesnâ€™t
impress me that there is a formula that does show the odds of this happening are I think maybe beyond a trillion to one. Sorry.” Carroll is convinced that all evidence for psi follows from logical fallacies of statistical misinterpretation, begging the question and affirming the consequent. “There’s an assumption made on the part of Dean Radin that any significant departure from the laws of chance is evidence that something paranormal has occurred,” Carroll says. “All they’re really saying is that if something strange happens, then something strange is happening. That’s really not telling you anything.” Radin is quick to assure that he tries to consider every other explanation and control his experiments tightly enough to rule out alternative explanations. But Carroll is not buying it. “If you ask anybody who’s in paranormal research to come up with one clear absolutely decisive, unambiguous example of a specific person with a psychic ability,” Carroll says, “you will find that the list has nothing on it. Whenever anybody has eliminated all the possibilities of trickery, nobody can move a pencil with their mind. It just isn’t done.” Carroll used to teach a course at Sacramento State University called Critical Thinking About the Paranormal and has studied the psychology of belief. “I almost think it’s a law that the more important a subject is, the less evidence people require to believe in it,” he laughs. “And the more trivial something is, like what color to paint your bedroom, they’ll agonize for years over making a simple decision. They can’t even choose what flavor ice cream they want. But they’ll believe in God at the drop of a pin.” That’s not the strangest thing about belief psychology. “What fascinates me are the studies that have been done that find that when people are confronted with evidence that shows they’re wrong, the majority of them come to believe what they believed even more,” he marvels. “It’s just the opposite of what you would expect if people were only seeking the truth. If someone challenges them with evidence that is very strong and conflicts with what they believe, the first reaction of most people is to discredit the source of that contrary information and try to find something at fault with them.” Although Carroll doesn’t predict a future for psi research, Radin’s work, for him, is not entirely without value. “We are learning an awful lot about human perception and psychology,” he says of the skeptical community. Carroll doesn’t see any harm in laboratory research on psi “as long as they’re not using taxpayer dollars. I don’t want them using my money to do that.” Although he will defend his data as long as skeptics continue to challenge it, Radin doubts that he will ever convince them. “For somebody who’s a hardcore skeptic, the level of evidence that they require is not something that fits in the world,” he says. “It fits in some other fantasy world that they imagine. They can never be convinced.” Radin welcomes constructive feedback and pronounces internal criticism “very tight,” which forces him to “do science defensively.” He objects to criticisms that are “nasty” and “designed to block inquiry.” Although he
leans heavily toward the affirmative, he never allows himself to be completely adamant that psi exists. “Science is always about doubt. I would say that my level of confidence is increasing as time goes on, but it’s never 100 percent. The moment you get to 100 percent and you have absolutely zero doubt, why bother doing it anymore?” he says.
Quantum Mech—what? Physics includes two schools of thought: classical physics and quantum mechanics. Classical physics, Radin explains, involves actions like shooting a bullet or building a bridge that known formulas can mathematically predict to a very precise degree. “What physics is, at least classical physics,” Radin explains, “is a refinement of common sense.” But when a researcher looks deeper into the fundamental composition and behavior of matter and energy, the rules start to disintegrate. Here’s the kicker. “One of the strange things in quantum mechanics is that our best description of the world—and this is based on mathematics—suggests that there’s no such thing as independent objects,” Radin says. “When [objects] interact, they actually are never separate afterwards. So since things are interacting all the time, it suggests that at some level, everything must always be connected.” Scientists call this property “entanglement,” or nonlocal connection. This isn’t just New Age mumbo-jumbo. Radin estimates that quantum mechanics is responsible for 30 percent of the global economy, rendering possible digital machines like computers and iPods. Despite the strangeness, Radin assures that “we know that it’s both true and pragmatically useful.” If matter and energy can become entangled with other matter and energy, could the matter and energy of separate minds also affect each other at a distance? If so, quantum mechanics could help explain psychic phenomena like telepathy and precognition. That possibility excites Radin. “We have a way of tying together weird psychic stuff with the fundamentals of physics,” he says, “which is where my interest is.”
How It Works Like any ability, practice makes perfect. “I think everybody has [psi ability] to some degree,” Radin says. “We’re dealing with a spectrum of ability. As long as you think of it as a spectrum, it’s almost identical to a spectrum of the ability to play golf.” But how exactly does one practice psi? “The first tip is to learn how to suppress your monkey mind, meaning the chatter in your head,” Radin advises. “Meditation is number one. If you can sit down for 30 minutes or an hour and pretty much empty your mind of all thoughts, you become very, very sensitive to what’s going on in your body and deeper in your subconscious.” The second tip is to refrain from making snap judgments about the images that effervesce in the mind. “The moment that you begin to name what you think is arising in your thoughts,” he says, “the game is over.
If you took a red flash and immediately said, ‘It’s like a flag,’ that’s going to spin out a story about a flag.” These two tips, Radin promises, will elevate a person from zero ability to at least a basic level, just by encouraging the person to receive impressions without needing to define them directly. “And by the way,” he says, lowering his voice, “what I just taught you is worth about $3,000 if you took a course in remote viewing.” While Radin pegs his own psychic ability at around an average level, he guesses that perhaps psi skills manifest according to an individual’s needs. He’s not very good at telepathy. “I don’t particularly want to hear other people’s thoughts. I have enough trouble with my own thoughts,” he half-jokes. “The only advantage in my experience is that I know how to test it.”
Psychology Community Even scientists outside of the parapsychology field are reaping the intellectual rewards of Radin’s explorations. Sonoma State psychology professor Laurel McCabe, Ph.D., invites Radin to give a guest lecture to her History of Modern Psychology class at the end of the semester. “He turns everything over,” McCabe says. “He’s saying he thinks [our model of human consciousness] is not adequate to explain actual experience. Students love that, because students like to think outside of the box. There are always some students who say, ‘Why aren’t more people doing research in this?’ and ‘I want to do this.’” Within the psychology community, McCabe reports a wide range of response to parapsychological studies. “It depends on who you talk to and what they know,” she says. “Psychology is such a big field.” She pegs personality psychologists as typically the most open to the idea, and cites certain neuroscientists who stick to neural network models as the most resistant. Even the legendary Carl Jung was interested in the kinds of ideas with which Radin works, calling entanglement “the collective unconscious.” “Dean gets invitations [to speak] from all over the world,” McCabe says. “He’s really well-known.” Radin, too, uses this as a barometer of his success in communicating his message. “If I were only invited to speak to New Age-y audiences who wanted to hear about the mystical powers of the universe or something and completely ignored by academia, then it would suggest that [psi] is not moving ahead, but that’s not the case,” Radin says. “I give talks all over the place to all kinds of audiences, including New Age-y but also to lots of universities and to the military and government,” Radin says. “There are plenty of people interested in this.”
Psi Forward “For a long, long time, the prevailing view was ‘ESP means Error Some Place,” Radin says. “If you look at the serious, informed skepticism today, many of them are no longer saying this is impossible. The nature of the criticism has changed from ‘That’s impossible because there’s a mistake’ or ‘It
can’t exist’ to what amounts to technical issues. Other skeptics are saying that if this were any other area of science, this would have been accepted. That’s a dramatic change. That’s from flatly impossible to an admission that whatever’s going on, if this were a normal topic, it would be real.” Psi researchers struggle to abide by the academic maxim of “publish or perish.” Mainstream journals just aren’t interested. Radin cites experiments by social psychologists on the prejudicial practices of scientific journals. Papers copied wordfor-word from a published journal and resubmitted under an unknown name with unimpressive affiliations get rejected. Resubmitted papers identical to their published counterparts except for a different, less mainstream conclusion are turned down. “By the time a paper shows up in a scientific journal, it has passed through several layers of prejudice, and it’s going to reflect whatever the mainstream view is,” Radin says. “This makes it exceptionally difficult for anything except for a mainstream view to ever make it into the science literature, and science literature is what major newspapers and magazines use to say here’s what science is learning today.” Radin and his colleagues turn to alternative journals like the Journal of Scientific Exploration to communicate their findings. Radin predicts a paradigm shift from the current mainstream viewpoint on psi. Scientists who grew up with quantum mechanics will push discovery forward in the next 50 years because, as Radin says, “they’re not scared of the weird stuff.” But the critical experiment, he predicts, will not come from a parapsychologist; it will be easier for someone on the inside to gain mainstream attention. “Some problems in biology and psychology seem very resistant to classical ways of thinking,” he says, and proposes quantum psychology or biology as the breakthrough field. He envisions a future experiment in which a quantum psychologist will separate twins in two different rooms, poke one and watch the other one flinch. “There will be this major discovery of connectivity between people that has quantumlike properties,” he says. “Somebody will remind them that there are 100 years of evidence that people have already found that. What you’ll find is a revisionist history domino effect going backward. All those people were playing with something, but they didn’t know what they had.” Radin is loath to pin down one theory of psi as the correct solution to the mechanistic mystery of entanglement, but uncertainty doesn’t bother him. According to empiricist philosophy, which dictates that all knowledge must derive from experience instead of abstract reasoning, it shouldn’t. “I don’t care that I don’t know how to explain it,” he says. “I don’t know how to explain all kinds of things.” He chuckles, then delivers a statement so central to the scientific ethos of inquiry followed by data, analysis and further inquiry that he confirms, at the very least, his earnestness despite the esoteric nature of his studies: “I am,” he says soberly, “an empiricist at heart.”
6A>CC> A detail from â€˜Leaving My Fatherâ€™s Houseâ€™ as displayed in Phoenix.
<P]hCP[TbC^[S Katherine Zsolt unpacks gruesome tales, one medium at a time, for ArtsSonoma By Anna Schuessler
queen on her deathbed forbids her king to marry again unless he can find a new wife as beautiful as she. The king, moved by grief over his wifeâ€™s death, does not even think to remarry for several years. And then one day, he looks at his daughter and realizes that she is the only woman who could possibly replace her mother. The princess, horrified by his proposal, stalls for time by asking him for three dresses before they marry: one as golden as the sun, one as silvery as the moon and one as bright as the stars. She also requests a mantle made of fur from every animal of the forest. When her father eventually produces all four items, she f lees his kingdom and marries another king. Does she lives happily ever after? Hardly. Stories like this one, a German fairy tale titled â€œAllerleirauh,â€? were once widely shared with young children. Starkly different from the watered-down fables that kids today watch, these stories and their gruesome undertones provoked the imagination, creating images that have lasted for years in the memories of people like sculptor Katherine Zsolt. â€œThe most important thing about these
weird fairy tales is that they leave you with some unconscious imagery that you canâ€™t digest, that sits way back, and your unconscious chews on it, for a lifetime,â€? says Zsolt by phone from Phoenix, Ariz. She knows from experience. She encountered â€œAllerleirauhâ€? 16 years ago in Marion Woodmanâ€™s novel Leaving My Fatherâ€™s House, and hasnâ€™t been able to shake the imagery ever since. And neither can those who gather to listen to the story. When Zsolt read the tale aloud to Helen Hestenes, owner of the Icehouse, an exhibition venue in Phoenix, Hestenes was moved by how clearly it affected the artist. She encouraged Zsolt to do an exhibition, and Zsolt used the opportunity to make a statement. She reflected first on the princessâ€™ three â€œdresses of light.â€? â€œThe first dress the princess puts on is the masculine dress,â€? she explains. â€œItâ€™s about brightness, itâ€™s about intellect. The second dress is moonlight, which is feminine intuition; itâ€™s about darkness. And then the dress of starlight, itâ€™s a light of communion with self or with the universe.â€? The issues raised in the fairy tale of incest and finding oneâ€™s voice compelled Zsolt to engage with the fairy tale as Hestenes suggested. Housed originally in the Icehouse, Leaving My Fatherâ€™s Houseâ€”Zsoltâ€™s three-part, 7,500square-foot installation is named in honor of
Woodmanâ€™s textâ€”occupied multiple rooms, including one that opened up to the Arizona sky. The work, which includes over 40 white body casts of children, 10 story panels, a small video installationâ€”complete with a flooded floorâ€” sprawled over the concrete building. Having just made the journey from Phoenix to the North Bay to play a part in the upcoming ArtsSonoma Festival, the piece is creating a narrative all its own. Zsolt grappled with the paradigm for storytelling that tales like â€œAllerleirauhâ€? offer. The sand-cast panels, which depict the first half of the fairy tale, are a tribute to traditional methods of storytelling. Zsolt added dimension to the story with the second and third parts of the exhibition, capturing the princessâ€™ flight from her fatherâ€™s kingdom in an ethereal video installation. Sharing a room with the video is a cluster of broken body casts and scattered plastic garbage centered around three computer monitors. In its Icehouse location, a capacious, roofless room enclosed the exhibition, with the body casts of children in relaxed, sleeping positions hanging from two of the concrete walls. Glassy black water covering the floor reflected the luminous forms, interrupted only by a plank-wood causeway. Before Leaving My Fatherâ€™s House could spin its own story, the artist herself had to face the facts of
the world around her. Zsolt is deeply moved by signs of environmental degradation such as the Pacific Gyre, the vortex of plastic garbage caught in the Pacific Ocean. Creating the complex artwork was the only way Zsolt could come to terms with what she observed. The princess in Zsoltâ€™s video installation mimics her reaction to the world: â€œUnlike the fairy tale, when [the video] ends, she really wakes up, her eyes are opened. And what she sees is what I saw.â€? No matter how clearly she envisioned the piece, however, Zsolt never could have foreseen how community would rally around the work and its message. Central to her position on environmental issues is the potential they have to set negative examples for younger generations. From the projectâ€™s onset, she planned on casting childrenâ€™s forms in plaster for the exhibitionâ€™s final part, but she never expected the response she received from both the kids and their parents. Her first castee brought photos of the experience to school, and drew 40 more interested youngsters into Zsoltâ€™s piece. Word about Leaving My Fatherâ€™s House spread, and Zsolt soon found she had support from a wide array of individuals. The artist had initially reached deeply into her own pocket in order to complete the piece. Zsolt works as a photographer and designer, and initially paid the cost of materials for the large project with income from her
other jobs. By the time she completed the work a year and a half after she started it, some 300 other parties had contributed to Leaving My Fatherâ€™s House, totaling up to $11,000. The response proved overwhelming, a phenomenon Zsolt had never expected. â€œI realized that although the piece was heartfelt, it became a community,â€? she says. The â€œcommunityâ€? surrounding Zsoltâ€™s multipart piece will dictate its future. Zsolt says sheâ€™s made a commitment to the children who volunteered to be cast to let her piece travel. Leaving My Fatherâ€™s House will be significantly downsized for the ArtsSonoma Festival, during which it will be exhibited in Geyservilleâ€™s old post office. Hoping to find other abandoned structures as venues for the work in the future, Zsolt wishes to keep this work as free of commercial interest as possible in order to preserve the artâ€™s verity and ability to reach the general public. Given its size, complexity and dark mythic underpinnings, the work is suitable only for a museum; the ambiguity of its location is only fodder for another story.

Running Aug. 28 through Sept. 12 at venues throughout Sonoma County, the ArtsSonoma Festival is an ambitious salute to all of the many events that North Bay creatives already have under way as well as an innovative effort to introduce new and unusual happenings. The fest kicks off a few days early with a masquerade party on Aug. 26, with food and wine as well as an ARTrail preview, silent auction, raff le, live music and more than a few surprises. Masquerade preview, Thursday, Aug. 26, at 5:30pm. Wells Fargo Center, 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. $150 a person; $250, couple. 707.579.2787. The fest proper launches with a full day of the arts on Aug. 28, featuring a taste of the event with plenty of food and drink available. Look for the KRSH 95.9-FM to present a musicianâ€™s showcase; ARTrails artists to be set up in booths; Cinnabar Theater to present standup comedy; Last Record Store owner and radio jock Doug Jayne to host a young musicianâ€™s showcase; and improvisational comedy from the players at Sixth Street Playhouse. The Childrenâ€™s Museum will pull up their traveling exhibit, the Northern California Native American Alliance will perform and more is emphatically guaranteed. Festival Launch, Saturday, Aug. 28, from 10am to 10pm. Wells Fargo Center, 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. $10. 707.579.2787. Otherwise, fest activities are typically found off-the-beaten, including photographer Megan Rhodesâ€™ Chainlinked installation. Essentially an art scavenger hunt featuring large photos adhered to chainlink fences at each of Sonoma Countyâ€™s four corners, Chainlinkedâ€™s individual parts hint at the location of the others. Visitors are urged to photograph themselves with the images and then post them to Facebook or email them to the artist to be entered in a raff le. Also, actor Eliot Fintushel will declaim Walt Whitmanâ€™s poetry at various unusual spots, the Carnival of Chaos will rain down some fervor, the Sonoma Summer Circus will juggle aâ€™plenty and thereâ€™s just lots and lots and lots of other tomfoolery. For a complete, up-to-date calendar, keep checking www.artssonoma.com, because all of this is a movable feast. Gretchen Giles

The Rep adds humor to Shakespeareâ€™s â€˜Comedyâ€™ By David Templeton
hakespeareâ€™s Comedy of Errors is often harshly criticized for, among other things, not being all that funny. Watching Sonoma County Repertory Theaterâ€™s wacky new outdoor staging of the much-maligned, infrequently performed show, itâ€™s hard to believe that such stuff could ever not have been funny. The Repâ€™s delightfully inspired production, directed by David Lear, takes Shakespeareâ€™s fluffy tale of mistaken identity and packs it with bizarre humor, wildly outsized performances and a barrage of laugh-inducing silliness. The production is so full of creative ideas and clever bits of business that the audience barely registers one random flash of comic invention before another one comes crashing through the door. Like an Airplane satire, not all of the jokes land softly, but there are so many gags coming so fast and furious that it doesnâ€™t even matter, because most of them do work. Lear sets the slapstick tone with an opening scene during a grand masquerade party in which two klutzy henchmen pursue a ragged criminal through the party guests, frequently colliding with each other or tangling themselves in their own ropes. As the duke of Ephesus, Larry Williams is like something out of Chitty-Chitty-BangBang, delivering his opening proclamation in a high, silly voice that resembles a giggle pumped up on steroids. The story can be confusing, and Lear uses this attribute to good effect, further emphasizing the baffling plot by setting the action amid an Escher-esque set of upside down pillars, mysterious doors and stairways that go nowhere. As explained by the Syracusean merchant Egeon (Kit Grimm), there are, somewhere in the world, two sets of identical twins, separated at birth: a pair of young men named Antipholus
(both played with increasingly baffled outrage by Freddy Lambert), and another pair named Dromio (Peter Ward, going eight hilarious directions at once). In the following scenes, we learn that each Dromio has become the servant to each Antipholus, one pair long since ensconced in the city of Ephesus, the other pair newly arrived in Ephesus after a shipwreck that left them wandering the world. Expected misunderstandings ensue when the two pairs of men are constantly assumed to be each other. The biggest problems occur when Adriana (Denise Elia), wife to the Ephesian Antipholus, mistakes the Syracusian Antipholus as her husband, with additional mayhem involving a custom-made gold chain delivered by accident to the visiting Antipholus. The results of this confusion nearly land one of the Antipholuses in the madhouse. The entire cast is energetic and inventive, especially Elia (looking gorgeous as she wields a whip, delivering her lines like in an overthe-top style reminiscent of old Hollywood movies); Samson Hood, as both the chainselling merchant and the local exorcist Dr. Pinch; and Diane Dearmore as Luce, Adrianaâ€™s ever-watchful servant. Lear takes chances, and for the most part they pay off, especially his way of teasing the source material while simultaneously making it work. A couple of lengthy speeches, which might have caused the action to stall, are turned into little comic masterpieces, as the other characters either attempt to break in or fall asleep one by one. In this frequently brilliant, high-energy Comedy, the audience will definitely not be sleeping. Theyâ€™ll be too busy laughing. â€˜Comedy of Errorsâ€™ runs Thursdayâ€“Sunday through Sept. 5. Ives Park, corner of Willow Street and Jewell Avenue, Sebastopol. 7pm. $15â€“$20; Thursday night, pay what you can. 707.823.0177.

74A<4C82 Like â€˜Das Boot,â€™ â€˜Lebanonâ€™ takes place inside one war machine.
8-22 sol Horizon 8-29 Brett Hunter
A tank crew is trapped in â€˜Lebanonâ€™
By Richard von Busack
sraeli director Samuel Maoz was wounded in the 1982 Israeli excursion into Lebanon (a piece of history seen in Waltz with Bashir). Itâ€™s obvious that much of what one sees in his Lebanon comes from personal experience. The problem is that the part that comes from a keen knowledge of cinema techniquesâ€”of grabbers and closeupsâ€”is obvious, too, and the mixture doesnâ€™t quite mix. One takes away from Maozâ€™s film the sense that tank warfare is an especially filthy way to fight and die, and thatâ€™s the mark of a serious statement of a wartime experience. You make the discovery, â€œThis is absolutely not the way Iâ€™d want to fight a war,â€? the same way you did when reading Randall Jarrellâ€™s poem about the ball-turret gunner or checking the finale of Pat Barkerâ€™s Ghost Road, describing WWI foot soldiers, in their extremity of exhaustion, deliriously imagining the sun reversing its course. There are times when the Quakers donâ€™t seem all that crazy. The movie is mostly carried out in tight close-up as the operation begins, hours before daylight. The crew of the tank, codenamed â€œRhino,â€? get lost, away from the rest of their command. After theyâ€™re crippled from a direct hit, theyâ€™re trapped in the neighborhood of a pair of vengeful and unreliable Phalangist Lebanese allies. The tankâ€™s officer, Assi (Itay Tiran) is showing signs of fracture, like the rest of Rhinoâ€™s green and nerve-wracked crew. We donâ€™t leave the tankâ€™s interior, though people (a corpse, an officer, a Syrian prisoner) drop in through the hatch. After the wallop of a shellâ€”shown in John Woo slow motionâ€”the cast is sprayed with almost pressurized filth, and the now
blackened faces of the crew are even more indistinguishable than they were before. Getting a nude scene into this kind of film wasnâ€™t easy, but Maoz did it. After the tank wastes a terrorist, a civilianâ€™s dress catches on fire, and she tears it off herself. The periscope tracks her as she looks for something to cover herself with. Iâ€™d accept that gawking at a naked woman is exactly what a soldier would do. Iâ€™m less comfortable with her scorn and rage as she stares down into the tankâ€™s lens. The cut from her eyes to a soldierâ€™s eyes makes their experiences equivalent. Thatâ€™s the old war-movie lie: having to watch people suffer is as bad as suffering. There are shockers here. Something terrible that happens to a civilian is like a real-life version of the finale of 1932â€™s Freaks, and the eye of an eviscerated donkey gets a tight close-up (something a cameraman might focus on, but would a soldier?). Thereâ€™s also a plausible monologue about a boyâ€™s orgasm shortly after the death of his father. Maozâ€™s uncomfortable way with dialogue, combined with the filmâ€™s tunnel-vision, ensures that the lines have the staged sound of a radio play. It may be good enough that Lebanon is the work of a humane man who doubts the necessity of war. But if thereâ€™d been something else manifested here, the imperativeness of De Palma, the punch of the William Friedkin who made Sorcerer or even more touches of the â€œblack comedyâ€? Maoz says in interviews that he wants to make next, Lebanon would have been so powerful that it would have been unwatchable. â€˜Lebanonâ€™ continues at the Smith Rafael Film Center, 1118 Fourth St., San Rafael. 415.454.1222.

Phil Alvin: egghead by day, rock star by night ertain stereotypes are associated with folks who turn out the kind of muscular, blues-inflected roots-rock of the Blasters, often converging around the vision of the roadhouse, where boozy weekend warriors escape to play sturdy, late-model rock â€™nâ€™ roll like their lives depended on it. Blasters frontman Phil Alvin defies such stereotypes, having maintained a notable musical career while also working in mathematical semantics, two fascinations that have often proven difficult to reconcile. â€œIâ€™m at my happiest when I play music and do mathematics in harmony with one another,â€? says Alvin, whose sophisticated ďŹ eld of mathematics involves the building blocks of artiďŹ cial intelligenceâ€”speciďŹ cally, translating the subtleties of human language into something machines can understand. â€œMathematics and music are always naturally in harmony,â€? he adds, â€œbut often the lifestyles clash.â€? Alvin hasnâ€™t always been consumed by such heady concerns. When he and his brother Dave formed the Blasters in 1979, they were young bucks from Downey, serving up raw slabs of rockabilly-infused roots music grafted with punk rock energy. The band built a devoted following until disbanding in 1985; Dave went on to a successful solo career, while Phil turned his attentions to mathematics, ultimately earning a doctorate from UCLA. While Phil released solo albums and toured intermittently, it wasnâ€™t until he reformed the Blasters in 2005, sans Dave, that his music career returned to the forefront. The reconstituted Blasters have toured regularly since, and while the band has new material, the current transitional state of the music industry has Alvin questioning the album format. â€œItâ€™s less the problem of the music and more the problem of â€˜What does it mean to record now?â€™â€? Alvin says. Though the Blasters have yet to ďŹ gure out the best route to distribute their new material, Alvin welcomes these transitions. â€œI never had any love for the abuse of record companies,â€? he says. â€œItâ€™s a really good time for music right now. Thereâ€™s a lot of action, both stylistically and with the business paradigm. Plus, I love to play.â€? The Blasters tear up the Hopmonk Tavern on Saturday, Aug. 28. 230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. 8pm. $20; 21 and over. 707.829.7300.

Grouperâ€™s Liz Harris disengages the spotlight By Gabe Meline Nearly every musician dreams of one day playing for thousands of fans, but for every 100 hopeful stars, there are one or two to whom music is an art, meant to be refined in small doses. Currently, one of the most prominent members of the latter group is Portlandâ€™s Liz Harris, who records and performs music under the name Grouper, and who has lately skirted around the edges of popular music with the cautious trepidation of a child around a crocodile pit. Last year, Harris played for gigantic audiences as the opening act on tour with Animal Collective, the single most critically acclaimed indie band of 2009, and watched her brilliant album Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill execute a slow burn into widespread consciousness. Yet since, the elusive musician has resisted pressure to release a full-length follow-up record and shunned the limelight, along with most interviews, to focus on her art studio, her self-released recordings and conceptual projects. For Harris, 30, touring with Animal Collective was â€œdisengagingâ€? but without pressure. â€œI knew it wasnâ€™t something I was going to pursue or use as a rung on a ladder,â€? she says, meeting me at a cafe in southeast Portland this past July. Whereas other artists might exploit a high-profile tour opportunistically to impress industry executives, Harris played strange tape loops,

022834=C0;?DA8BC Liz Harrisâ€™ otherworldly music results from â€˜recording things wrong.â€™
white noise and rhythmless atmospherics. She spoke little to the large crowds. â€œAlso, I had gone through a huge breakup a month before I left on that tour,â€? she adds, â€œand I was so blown away. So the fact that I was going on tour with this band that was selling out all their shows? I felt like I didnâ€™t notice it.â€? Harris grew up in a North Bay commune called the Group (the kids there called each other â€œGroupersâ€?) and graduated from Petaluma High School before studying at UC Berkeley and working briefly as a commercial illustrator in Los Angeles. Fleeing Southern California, she came north and devoted herself to music, releasing hazy, meditative experimental records through friendsâ€™ labels and through the San Francisco label Root Strata. â€œThe best sounds I get are from recording things wrong,â€? she explains, â€œin layers passed over each other, taped and retaped, broken equipment and odd EQ-ing.â€? Yet an acoustic guitar provided a change for 2008â€™s Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill, on Type Records. The looming presence on previous Grouper albums shape-shifted into structured songs, with quiet strumming and doubled vocals. She says the record felt like a vulnerable experiment. Instead, it landed on many criticsâ€™ year-end listsâ€”somewhat to Harrisâ€™ chagrin. â€œI was really apprehensive to put that out, because it felt like my weird off-album,â€? she admits, wringing her hands together between her knees. â€œI was embarrassed to put it out. It was more poppy and open than anything Iâ€™d done, so I didnâ€™t know what to think of it or if I even liked it.â€? Harris retreated. To follow it up, she selfreleased Vessel, a vinyl-only record containing five â€œpurposely meanderingâ€? songs alongside music by Roy Montgomery, a New Zealand guitarist. She silkscreened original artwork to include in each of 500 copies of the recordâ€”â€œI didnâ€™t want to make more records than people want,â€? she saysâ€”and they sold out immediately. (Copies swiftly made the rounds on eBay for up to $100.) Other artistic projects included performing a live tape-loop score to Andrei Tarkovskyâ€™s 1979 film Stalker, and this year Harris is releasing Divide, a book of original art due this fall. In live shows, Harris plays little from Dragging a Dead Deer, instead aligning her atmospherics with the umbrella genre of â€œnoise,â€? a term she concedes is ill-fitting. â€œI feel like some things,â€? Harris says, â€œin order to talk about them, if youâ€™re talking about something elusive like emotions or dreams, you have to look at them from the corner of your eye. Thatâ€™s the beauty in them. They canâ€™t be tied down and they arenâ€™t in one shape.â€? Last month at the Berkeley Art Museum, Harris premiered a site-specific work called â€œSleep,â€? which utilized the natural echo of the cavernous concrete space. As hundreds of mostly twenty-somethings sat on the floor beneath high-hanging mobiles made from small, silver triangles, Harris cautiously strummed her guitar, listening for the delayed sounds. This happened for 35 minutes, and then a voice from a handheld tape recorder somewhere in the museum uttered a sentence fragment, and then Harris stood up and left. Seven silent minutes later, the museum filled with applause.

Impro Theatre even takes Austen on the fly hen you hand teenagers the power to say and act out anything, no holds barred, youâ€™ve opened the floodgates to something powerfulâ€”and quite possibly dangerous. After all, improvisational and sketch comedy in the hands of Generation Whatever is bound to unleash the perverse. If you are brave enough to wade through endless Beavis & Butthead impressions and sexual innuendos so clumsy that even Benny Hill would scoff, a wealth of untapped comedic material can emerge from unusual sources. With an extraordinary gift for contorting her petite frame and lovely face into over-the-top personas and profoundly subtle characters, Tracy Burns teaches and performs improv throughout the world. She went from training stoned teenage Mendocino peaceniks to directing hardened former gang members in a group known as â€œSuspect Entertainment.â€? More recently, sheâ€™s joined forces with Impro Theatre, a nonprofit Los Angeles theatersports troupe touting veterans like Wayne Brady, Michael McShane and Brad Sherwood of the improv game show Whose Line Is It Anyway? Professionally trained smartasses aim for the impossible, tackling everything from Shakespeare to Dickens with quick-witted comedic tricks and infectious charm. Armed with an arsenal of period costuming, extensive vocabulariesâ€”both known and invented onthe-spotâ€”and with minds drenched both with great literary works and years of bong rips, Burns and friends have hit the road. Their latest incarnation pokes fun at the Hugh Grantâ€“laden school of Victorian literature, channeling Jane Austen. Improv comedy taught me the power to turn bullshit into gold, and gold into bullshit, and made a personal hero of Tracy Burns. My peers and I left school with the skills and maturity to transcend fart jokes while embracing the profound nature of flatulence quibs. Find out what happens when Impro Theatre pull Austenâ€™s white-gloved finger in Jane Austen Unscripted Wednesdayâ€“Thursday, Sept. 1â€“2, at the 142 Throckmorton Theatre. 142 Throckmorton Ave., Mill Valley. 8pm. $20â€“$30. 415.383.9600.
