The second annual Connect the Dots: Refinery Corridor Healing Walks is a series of four walks, one each month from April through July. The walks proceed along the Northeast San Francisco Bay refinery corridor.
The walks are led by Native American elders and others in prayer, with those walking behind in conversation. Prayers for the water are conducted by Native American women at the beginning and end of each walk. Walkers stop at each refinery and toxic sites along the way for teach-ins and prayer circles. During the final mile of each walk, walkers are encouraged to envision the “future they want” beyond fossil fuels. At the end of each walk, walkers are invited to draw or write their visions on squares of muslin. These small art pieces will be sewn into a quilt. The quilts from the 2014 walks will be on display at the beginning and end of each walk.
Come and be part of the happening thing in Albany.

“The greatest lesson I learned from my experiences making this film is that my pursuit of happiness is not about me. It’s about us…”
Award-winning director, Roko Belic
How can we bring more happiness into our daily lives and why is that so important, especially today?
This 75-minute documentary about the pursuit of happiness shows how the most unlikely people may actually be the happiest of all.
We’ll also show a brief interview with Executive Director, Tom Shadyak, and a special short feature on living at the Findhorn Community in Scotland.
Our afternoon screening will be followed by audience intermingling and snacks… Please join us, and bring a friend!
Come watch this documentary and learn how to protect yourself from cell phone radiation! No, you don’t have to toss your phone away. But there is a safer way to use it. This film will educate us re the hazards of heedless use of technology AND remind us how to use our gadgets without endangering our health. Or at the very least, minimize the toxic load.
This is from the Mobilize press kit:
Mobilize is an investigative documentary that explores the potential long-term health effects from cell phone radiation including cancer and infertility. Examining the most recent scientific research and legislative efforts, Mobilize illuminates how finance corrupts public health. The film features interviews with numerous doctors, politicians, cancer patients, and technology experts, major telecommunication associates, and prominent politicians.
Filmed over three years and edited together from hours of footage, Mobilize includes accounts from individuals at the following organizations and universities: Apple, Inc., the World Health Organization, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the National Cancer Institute, the Cellular Telecommunications Internet Association, Yale University, Harvard University, USC, UCSF, UC Berkeley and Virgin Mobile.
I am certainly looking forward to watching the whole film! (more…)
