-Monday Mar. 21st: 2 Free Skool classes!
**Heliostat Hackers: Solar Hacking- 10am (a Free Skool class)
Using the sun to light and heat your indoor location. We will discuss the use of and making of a low cost heliostat to turn the ever moving rays of the sun into a stationary more usable beam. With Chris.
**Wireless Health Damage and Smart Meters- 5-7pm (a Free Skool class)
If you don't trust wireless devices, are you a luddite tin foil hat weirdo or just someone with good instincts? New scientific findings of health damage from wireless microwave radiation emitted by cell phones, wifi, and cordless phones are piling up just as PG&E tries to force its powerful wireless equipped 'smart' meters on every home and business in California. But people are fighting back. Learn the facts about EMF and health, how we can resist fascist privacy invading greenwashed power plots, and construct a relocalized energy system that empowers, not oppresses people. Requirements: We ask that cell phones and wifi be turned off for the class, out of respect for those who are electro-sensitive (which is really all of us). With Joshua Hart.
-Wednesday Mar. 23rd: Whow! A Lot Happening!
**Furniture Making- 10am (a Free Skool class)
Creative use of found materials and design techniques will be discussed and demonstrated. Only material availability and motivation will limit us in this class. With Chris.
**Herbs Strategies for Acute and Chronic Sinusitis: 11am-1pm (a Free Skool class)
We'll discuss herbal support for acute and chronic sinusitis. We'll address causes: viruses, allergies, working and living conditions, etc. Dietary, herbal, and lifestyle suggestions will be provided. Requirements: Bring pen and paper for notes. With Red Root Herbal Collective.
**Radical Film Night- 7:30pm- The Sting (This month's theme is Crime Pays!)
The Sting is a 1973 American caper film set in September 1936 that involves a complicated plot by two professional grifters (Paul Newman and Robert Redford) to con a mob boss (Robert Shaw). The story was inspired by real-life con games perpetrated by the brothers Fred and Charley Gondorff. The title phrase refers to the moment when a con artist finishes the "play" and takes the mark's money. If a con game is successful, the mark does not realize they have been "taken" (cheated), at least not until the con artists are long gone.
Come watch films with others, eat popcorn (we will bring some, and we encourage you to bring snacks to share as well) and after the screening we can share in a discussion of the films. $2 donation (notaflof)
-Thursday Mar. 24th: Two to-dos
**Hacktivism 103- 5-7pm (a Free Skool class)
Though much of technology is well-deserving of critique and scrutiny, we work to shape the new world within the context of the old. Through this series of hacktivism workshops, we want to both encourage your interest in technology and provide a way for all of us to exercise our radical politics. If you’ve ever soldered something and enjoyed it, or if you’ve ever learned a programming language and felt brilliant, or if you’ve ever designed something that worked perfectly, we'd like to share more of that with you in an environment where men, women, and trans folks can connect. Requirements: An interest to learn. Some technical savviness and sneakiness. Wtih UBEW.
**Open Mic- sign ups 7:30pm and begins 8pm
