Bay Area Glass Sculpture, An Invitational Survey Juried by George and Dorothy Saxe
November 13 - January 10,  2009 
 
The San Francisco Bay Area has emerged as a hotbed of serious glass sculpture in recent years, with work created using a large variety of techniques. The resulting pieces showcase the vast vocabulary available to artists working in glass. This important invitational features 23 artists from internationally celebrated masters, such as studio glass pioneer Marvin Lipofsky, to mid-career and emerging sculptors working in the Bay Area who use glass as their primary medium. George and Dorothy Saxe, who have assembled one of the country's foremost glass collections (bequeathed to the De Young Museum in San Francisco) will select from one to three works by each artist.
On view will be wall hung, suspended, free standing and pedestal sized sculptures made from various types of glass, including pâte de verre, borosilicate, sheet, recycled glass and exemplifying many different techniques including casting, blowing (free and mold), fusing, slumping, cold-working, hot-working, etc... Some works will use glass combined with different materials.
We are honored to feature Marvin Lipofsky, who is widely recognized as a pioneer in the contemporary glass movement and as the father of Bay Area glass sculpture. After introducing glass as a sculpture medium at UC Berkeley in 1964, he created the glass department for then California College of Arts and Crafts (now CCA) in Oakland, and headed it for twenty years until 1987. In his 45 year career as a glass artist, Lipofsky has been featured in numerous significant exhibitions, including a major retrospective at the Oakland Museum in 2003. He co-founded The Glass Society and has taught and lectured at over 300 workshops and conferences internationally. Collected by ninety museums on four continents, his organic, luminous works with either delicate or dramatic rhythms of colors can also be found in some of the most prestigious private and corporate collections.

It's time once again for another hour of unique ukulele music that you never knew existed. You won't hear Tiny Tim or much in the way of Hawaiian tunes during this show, what you'll hear is the little ukulele popping up in unexpected places and  in rocking good songs!
    That's this Thursday night November 6th at 11:59 on KALX 90.7FM in Berkeley. My guest co-hosts for this show will be Holly and Chris of the local San Francisco Uke-centric band Just Henry. Feel the pain!

"Government program tied to weight gain in adults" reports reuters uk.com

"A Mexican government program that offers cash assistance to encourage healthy habits may paradoxically result in excess weight gain and higher blood pressure in some adults, a study suggests.

The program, which gives impoverished families cash in exchange for attendance at annual medical check-ups and nutrition classes, has been held up as a model for the rest of the world.

But the new study, by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley and the World Bank, suggests that the program, called Oportunidades, may be having unintended consequences."

 

  

 

 

"David Trachtenberg: Refining that Berkeley look" is a story by Eve Kushner, Special to The Chronicle.

"What do Berkeley Bowl, the Rose Grocery project and the new Read Building on Fourth Street have in common?

Their architect is David Trachtenberg, known for responding to the historical feel of Berkeley architecture while creating structures with a distinctive look.

His architectural forebears include Bernard Maybeck and Julia Morgan, founders of the Bay Region style of architecture, which emphasized building with natural materials and featured rooms that interacted with the outdoors. But he also brings a contemporary sensibility to his work and bridges the gap between past and present - sometimes in a single building."

Hello South and West Berkeley Neighbors,
A few ways to help the police close some cases and some upcoming events that may interest you...
 
Who's This Crook?
Berkeley Police Department presents a new web feature to showcase recent crimes where community members can assist our Detectives with information.  For crimes that the police can use your assistance, please visit www.cityofberkeley.info/ContentDisplay.aspx?id=29146
 
 
Community Participation Critical in Solving Berkeley's Most Violent Crimes
Berkeley, California (Friday, October 31, 2008) - City of Berkeley Police Department (BPD) detectives are urging the community to work with them to help solve the city's open murder investigations of 2008. Detectives are confident that there are individuals that have the details they need to further their work in solving the murders of Brandon Terrell Jones, 29 of Berkeley, Creon Burns, 25 of San Leandro, Anthony Beamon, 29 of Berkeley, Kelvin Earl Davis, 26 of Berkeley and Kevin Antoine Parker, 42 of Oakland.  BPD Homicide detectives have been actively working on these investigations, but have yet to make any arrests. 
 
On February 24, 2008 at 11:50 pm, Jones was shot and killed in the 1500 block of  Harmon Street. On March 3, 2008 at 11:32 pm Burns was shot and killed in front of 1615 Russell Street. On May 28, 2008 at 11:32 pm, Beamon was shot and killed in front of 1536 Tyler Street. Most recently, Davis and Parker were shot and killed in the 1400 block of Derby Street on September 18, 2008. The City of Berkeley is still offering a $15,000 reward in each of these cases.
 
Community participation and witness cooperation were essential in securing arrests in the murders of Christopher Wootton on May 3, 2008 and Maceo Anthony Smith on May 13, 2008. Without the commitment of witnesses, these arrests may not have ever been possible.
 
BPD is a new partner of Bay Area Crime Stoppers. (BACS) BACS offers up to $2,000 cash in reward money to those who offer information that is helpful to any of these murder investigations. Anyone with information can call 1-800-222-TIPS. All Bay Area Crime Stoppers calls are completely confidential.

Nationwide, prime time television programs and other media have created some unrealistic expectations regarding detectives' ability to solve crime. (depicting 5 minute DNA and ballistics results, for example) In addition, popular culture campaigns such as "No Snitching" have created significant challenges and are becoming more prevalent with the youth of our communities.
 
The family and loved ones of these victims, in partnership with BPD detectives, are appealing to the community for help with these investigations. Anyone with information regarding these crimes is urged to call the BPD Homicide Detail at (510) 981-5741 (office) or (510) 981-5900. (Non-emergency dispatch line) or BACS at 1-800-222-TIPS.

"Green spaces 'reduce health gap'" reports BBC NEWS.

"Nature may be good for health.

A bit of greenery near our homes can cut the "health gap" between rich and poor, say researchers from two Scottish universities.

Even small parks in the heart of our cities can protect us from strokes and heart disease, perhaps by cutting stress or boosting exercise.
Their study, in The Lancet, matched data about hundreds of thousands of deaths to green spaces in local areas.

Councils should introduce more greenery to improve wellbeing, they said."

"Latino film festival brings back 'El Norte'" is a story by Delfin Vigil, Chronicle Staff Writer.

"Back in 1983, when Gregory Nava co-wrote and directed the epic immigration film 'El Norte,' the idea of a Latino film festival was the furthest thing from his mind. The mere concept of Latino film as its own genre had never even occurred to the Mexican American filmmaker.

'When you tell the story of your village, you tell the story of the whole world. These are simply universal human tales,' said Nava, who will be in the Bay Area for the 25th anniversary of 'El Norte,' one of the highlights of the 12th San Francisco International Latino Film Festival, which begins Friday."

 

 

 

"UC Berkeley, Nokia turn mobile phones into traffic probes" reports physorg.com.

"Drivers in the San Francisco Bay Area with GPS-enabled mobile phones can soon tap into new technology that promises to transform traffic monitoring. Moments before midnight on Monday, Nov. 10, researchers from the University of California, Berkeley, and Nokia Research Center, Palo Alto will publicly release pilot software that turns cellular devices into mobile traffic probes providing real-time information on traffic flow and travel times.

As part of this Mobile Millennium project, anyone can download the free software at http://www.traffic.berkeley.edu. It will work on most GPS-enabled cell phones operating on GSM networks - such as AT&T and T-mobile - that are capable of installing and running Java applications. The Web site will be continually updated with a list of specific Nokia and non-Nokia phone models compatible with the software. Because of the large amount of data transmitted by the system, researchers recommend that participants have an unlimited data plan.

As vehicles pass through the system's virtual trip lines - geographic markers defined by GPS coordinates - the phones will send anonymous speed and location readings to servers. The data will be integrated into traffic models that produce an estimate of traffic flow, then relayed back to the mobile phones and posted online at traffic.berkeley.edu."

 

 

 

 
 "President Dmitry Medvedev appeared in no hurry Wednesday to congratulate Barack Obama on his victory in the U.S. presidential election, sending the senator a telegram after eschewing an opportunity to acknowledge the win in his state-of-the-nation address" is part of a report by Russia's St Petersburg Times by Nabi Abdullaev.

"'I hope for a constructive dialogue with you, based on trust and consideration of each other's interests,' Medvedev said in a plainly worded note sent to Obama and posted on the Kremlin's web site late Wednesday afternoon.

Despite several references to the new U.S. administration, Medvedev refrained from mentioning Obama in his speech at 12 p.m. - long after it was clear that the Illinois Democrat had won.

The apparent hesitance came despite the fact that Medvedev has said he would prefer that Obama, 47, become the next U.S. president instead of his rival, Arizona's Republican Senator John McCain, 72.

'It would be easier to work with people with a modern outlook, rather than those whose eyes are turned back to the past,' Medvedev said in February, before he was elected president himself."

"Linebackers stand out at Cal, USC" writes Jonathan Okanes of the Times.

"For those who call themselves connoisseurs of linebacker play, the Los Angeles Coliseum will be the place to be Saturday.

The matchup between No. 21 Cal and No. 7 USC not only features two of the best linebacker corps in the Pac-10, but in the nation. Each team has two players on the watch list for the 2008 Butkus Award, given to the country's top linebacker. And they each lead a defense ranked among the best nationally."

 

"Hall Will Visit Cal for the Big Game" is a story at scout.com.

"WR Adam Hall is rated the No. 25 wide receiver in the nation, according to Scout.com. The four-star standout can play offense or defense at the next level. He says Cal likes him on both sides of the ball. His scheduled official visit to Berkeley was moved to the date of the Big Game. Hall tells us he is looking forward to his visit, which will be his first official trip."

 

 

 

"Zeppelin taking to the skies over Bay Area" is a story by George Raine, Chronicle Staff Writer.

"Flying in the world's largest airship is a very quiet, smooth-as-silk experience. The six-cylinder aircraft engines
hum unobtrusively, allowing the ship's 12 passengers to chat easily among themselves and the crew in the narrow gondola. Grand vistas can be seen through large windows, some of which can be opened."

 

 

"Turkey talk: How much is that dinner on the table?" asks Michelle Locke of the AP.

Crazy economic times have Americans counting their pennies along with their blessings this Thanksgiving. And that has many people wondering, just how much will it cost to give thanks this year?

Thanksgiving, the intersection of gratification and gratitude, can leave a thrifty shopper feeling as plucked as the bird of honor.

'It's probably the biggest sticker shock of the year you get because it's probably the one time of the year where you buy as much,' says Jim Sartwelle, an economist at the American Farm Bureau, which since 1986 has released an annual Turkey Day tally based on an informal survey by volunteer shoppers across the country."

"Berkeley changes with the times.

Nestled in the Berkeley Hills, Cal is home to Nobel laureates, the first cyclotron, berkelium and a spirited student body" is a story in the LA Times by Christopher Reynolds

"So what do we call this place? Cal? Berkeley? Cal Berkeley? UC Berkeley? This question hung above 10 of us -- nine visitors and one student tour guide, all gathered at a busy campus that simmered on an autumn weekday morning with undergraduate enthusiasm, intellectual fermentation and political skirmishing.

Way back in 1966, when he was running for governor and the university was awash in demonstrations, Ronald Reagan described this campus as 'the mess at Berkeley.' After winning that election, Reagan engineered the firing of the university president, cut the budget, proposed selling rare books from the library and sent the National Guard in with bayonets and tear gas, dramatic gestures tha' helped give this territory its own chapter in the history of dissent in America.'But that was a long time ago.

"You can pretty much call us whatever you want,' guide Jenn Lerner told us. 'As long as it's not Stanford.'

. . . Off-campus, the first spot tourists are likely to ask about is Telegraph Avenue, which is a sort of fading cartoon of the '60s, tie- dyed T-shirts forever on sale. Its virtues include Moe's, a longtime survivor at 2476 Telegraph that offers new and used books. The avenue's other esteemed book peddler of several decades, Cody's, closed in 2006 (followed by other Cody's locations)."

my thoughts on a completely new Potter Creek Association

 

 

"Too-brief tour of the new Berkeley:Just the other day, I paid my first-ever visit to that amazing campus on the hillside above Oakland - the University of California at Berkeley" is a post at getreligion.org.

I have to admit that what I saw and heard surprised me a bit.

As someone who went to college in the 1970s, not that long after the '60s, I had read a bit about Berkeley. I also wrote my first graduate project on civil religion in the Vietnam War Moratorium, which required me to read quite a bit about Berkeley. But, hey, everyone knows the reputation of that campus when it comes to (a) excellence and (b) trendy radicalism.

Now, maybe it was because I was on campus for a conference about religion, politics and the news media (of course), but I heard lots of people talking about how much things have changed at Berkeley.
More on that in a moment."

"Bake Sales Fall Victim to Push for Healthier Foods" is a story by Patricia Leigh Brown in the New York Times.

"Tommy Cornelius and the other members of the Piedmont High School boys water polo team never expected to find
themselves running through school in their Speedos to promote a bake sale across the street. But times have been tough since the school banned homemade brownies and cupcakes.

The old-fashioned school bake sale, once as American as apple pie, is fast becoming obsolete in California, a result of strict new state nutrition standards for public schools that regulate the types of food that can be sold to students. The guidelines were passed by lawmakers in 2005 and took effect in July 2007. They require that snacks sold during the school day contain no more than 35 percent sugar by weight and derive no more than 35 percent of their calories
from fat and no more than 10 percent of their calories from saturated fat."

 

 

"ACS Data Recovery and Fix That Mac of Berkeley, California Work To Help Students Hit With Data Loss" is a press release at prweb.com.

"Amyris brews barrels of diesel from sugarcane" is a report from David R. Baker, Chronicle Staff Writer.

"The Bay Area's latest motor fuel factory looks like a microbrewery run by Ph.D.s.

Men in white lab coats tend gleaming metal vats filled with yeast and sugar. The air inside the converted Emeryville warehouse smells vaguely like hops.

But the factory, built by Amyris Biotechnologies, doesn't make beer, at least not most of the time. Instead, the vats and the yeast churn out a clear liquid that mimics diesel fuel. Blend it with some regular diesel, stick it in an engine, and it works."

"Berkeley high-speed transit not yet a done deal" reports Carolyn Jones, Chronicle Staff Writer.

"Berkeley voters may have torpedoed an anti-transit measure on Tuesday's ballot, but AC Transit's high-speed
buses aren't likely to be zipping up Telegraph Avenue any time soon.

Measure KK, which would have required voter approval before bus-only lanes could be installed on city streets, was rejected by 77 percent of the voters - the largest defeat among the seven measures on Berkeley's ballot.

The transit measure was intended to stop, or at least delay, AC Transit's plan for a high-speed bus line along Telegraph Avenue and circling through downtown.

Proponents of the measure, most of them merchants and neighbors along Telegraph, said the bus-only lane would have snarled traffic and displaced precious street parking in one of the most congested parts of town.

The future of the high-speed bus line, also called bus rapid transit, is now in the hands of Berkeley's transportation and planning commissions. The City Council is likely to take up the issue early next year.

Measure KK supporters said they were happy with the results, even if their measure lost."

 

"More Journalists Lose Jobs At BANG's East Bay Papers" reports Richard Brenneman of the Planet.

California's leading newspaper publisher, Dean Singleton's MediaNews, is shedding eight more jobs in the East Bay.

BANG-EB, short for Bay Area News Group-East Bay, was created out of the Oakland Tribune, Contra Costa Times, Fremont Argus and other newspapers assembled by the media mogul and allowed him, briefly, to bust the Media Workers Guild by adding in the staff of the non-union Times to the union shops in Oakland and Fremont."

The guild responded with an organizing drive that reinstated the union shops, adding the Times staff as a bonus."

(So, I'm wondering Mr. B, is our Planet a union shop?)

"Viagra Spam Is Profitable, but Margins Are Tight" is a report by Jeremy Kirk at pcworld.com.

"One of the most notorious networks of hacked computers used for sending spam could be generating as much as US$3.5 million per year peddling drugs such as Viagra, according to new research.

While filters used by e-mail providers Yahoo, Google and Microsoft halt a vast amount of spam, messages squeak through and reach receptive buyers.

The study was carried out by infiltrating the Storm botnet, a robust peer-to-peer system that commands millions of hacked computers to send spam campaigns.

The researchers modified Storm's command-and-control system to insert their own links in spam messages that lead to Web sites they created instead of the one's spammers were advertising.

One of the Web sites advertised pharmaceuticals, and the other mimicked an e-postcard site. E-postcard spam often leads to Web sites that try to infect PCs with malicious software that causes the machines to send Storm-related spam."
