Subject: Re: Email on your BoycottDelta ?

In response to Delta Air Line's utter lack of concern with the privacy of
their customers demonstrated by their participation in a test of the CAPPS
II system, a Delta disinvestment campaign has been launched at:

http://www.boycottdelta.org .

The idea of citizens having to undergo a background investigation that
includes personal banking information and a credit check simply to travel in
his or her own country is invasive and un-American.  The CAPPS II system
goes far beyond what any thinking citizen of this country should consider
reasonable.

If enough people refuse to fly Delta, then it is likely that other airlines
will refuse to implement this sadly misguided and anti-democratic system.
The boycott will remain in full effect until Delta Air Lines publicly
withdraws from any involvement with the testing of CAPPS II.

Subject: VIRTUAL SIT-IN OF DOW "GREENWASH" SITE, ALL THIS WEEK

March 10, 2003 

VIRTUAL SIT-IN OF DOW "GREENWASH" SITE, ALL THIS WEEK:
http://www.dowethics.com/bhopal.com/

Action Ends on March 17th, 2003

Dow Chemical is going to court this week in India. Not as the defendants
for their ongoing responsibility for the Bhopal disaster, but as the
plaintiffs: Dow is suing the SURVIVORS of the disaster for protesting at a
Dow plant, and--we're not making this up--they're demanding US$10,000 from
them... about 10 years of wages at local rates.

But pesky internet activists are showing Dow there is no escape, with a
virtual sit-in of Dow's internet Greenwash headquarters, Bhopal.com
(http://www.dowethics.com/bhopal.com/).

Dow's unapologetic website, which includes an "incident review," denies
that Dow purchased any liability for the disaster when they bought Union
Carbide, which was the majority stakeholder in the Bhopal plant (even
though Dow did pay up for Union Carbide's asbestos liabilities in the
First World). The site also states that "The legacy of those killed and
injured is a chemical industry that adheres voluntarily to strict safety
and environmental standards." (You may want to read that sentence again
just to be sure you got it right.)

After the 1984 gas leak, which has killed 20,000 people to date, Union
Carbide abandoned the factory site and fled India. For 18 years since, the
toxic wastes left by Union Carbide have been bleeding poisons into the
groundwater and affecting the health of the people living near the
factory. Dow merged with Union Carbide in 2001 and paid up for Union
Carbide's asbestos liabilities, but it refuses to do the same for Bhopal.

Dow has faced may protests since taking over Union Carbide, but suing the
victims represent a new low in Dow's attempts to gag its critics. Most of
the survivors come from the poorest sections of Indian society. To
reinforce its message, therefore, Dow is asking for a monetary settlement
from the victims. The amount they seek represents an average Indian's
earnings over 10 to 20 years. The cause? Dow's "loss of business".

If Dow sues real-life protesters into silence, protest will spring up
elsewhere. This protest hopes to show Dow that the only way to really
silence protest will be to spend a small fraction of its US$28 billion
annual turnover on cleaning up Bhopal.


A virtual sit-in is simply an automated way of sending lots of traffic to
a website.  Activists around the world park their browsers on a page which
does nothing more than automatically load the bhopal.com site several
times a minute. In the same way that a real-world sit-in disrupts traffic,
the virtual sit-in makes the target site less responsive and slow.  
Eventually, the site may become so crowded with protestors that it stops
serving information completely.

The virtual sit-in will be located at The Yes Men's hugely successful
spoof of Dow's website: http://www.dowethics.com/bhopal.com/. Dow has been
playing whack-a-mole with the DowEthics.com site, launching several
abortive legal attempts to shut it down, only to have new activists set it
up in a new spot on the internet. Other parts of the site explain more
honestly why Dow refuses to clean up Bhopal and why image is everything to
Dow.

Call for Papers

Focus Theme: Culture and Media Industry

Dear Colleagues:
JMM - The International Journal on Media Management
is leading forum for the communication of research data
and high quality information on all significant aspects
of media management.

Guest Editor: Lucy Küng, University of St.Gallen, Switzerland

This special issue will focus on a subject that lies at
the heart of media sector - culture. Culture, in its many
incarnations, features in a surprisingly varied range of
contexts relating to recent developments in the media
industry. Computer hacker culture has been credited as the
root of consumers' unwillingness to pay for downloaded
music. Incompatible corporate cultures have been blamed
for media mergers that fail to achieve their promised
potential. Mass market media products from Big Brother to
computer games have been blamed for the decline in the
so-called high culture industries.

Academics and practitioners are invited to contribute
papers and case studies relating to this rich and complex
phenomenon. Topics may include:

- - the nature and dynamics of corporate culture
  in media organisations;
- - the role of cultural products in the media firm;
- - culture and convergence - the challenge of combining
  different industry and/or national cultures;
- - culture, creativity and innovation;
- - culture and organisational change;
- - new versus old media cultures;
- - culture and corporate identity;
- - culture and leadership;
- - culture and management style.


Each issue of JMM is also open for submission to articles
which deal with topics of general interest to the media
management field. For further information, please visit the
contributors section on our website.

JMM accepts papers between 3500 and 6500 words in length.
Please refer to the Contributors Section for our templates
(Cover page and Manuscript Template) to submit your article.

Important Deadlines:

Submission: 30 May 2003
Acceptance Decision:  15 July 2003
Publication: Autumn 2003.

For questions regarding the journal, the review process,
or the submission of your paper: media.editors {AT} netacademy.org

From: Ryan Griffis <grifray {AT} yahoo.com>
Subject: USDA Organic standards subverted

Hello Organic Food Buyer,
 
Last week Congress passed an appropriations bill which
overturns USDA regulations requiring all organic
livestock to be fed 100% organic feed. Meaning if you
buy organic meat/livestock they don't necessary need
to be feed with 100% organic feed to be labelled as
organic.

*****Take Action - to Protect The integrity of Organic
Standards*****

Senator Leahy (D-VT) is taking the lead by introducing
the Organic Restoration Act to repeal this rider.

Representative Sam Farr will be introducing this same
bill in the House.

Co-sponsors are needed ASAP in the House AND Senate -
both Republicans and Democrats.

For the repeal bill to be successful, we must generate
a lot of interest and public comment on the bill all
across the nation. It is important that everyone -
farmers, consumers, environmentalists, and the entire
organic industry - talk to their members of Congress
and get them on board in supporting these two bills. 
If we do not stand up to this blatant attempt by
agri-business to have their way with the organic
standards, this is just the beginning of the
degradation to come.

****What You Can Do - Take Action!******

Contact your representatives in Washington and demand
that support the Organic Restoration Act to repeal the
language inserted into Section 771 of the Omnibus
Appropriations Bill undermining the integrity of the
organic label for meat, poultry, eggs and dairy.

The message is simple: Urge your Senators and
Representatives to support the Organic Restoration Act
that was introduced on Feb 26th by Senator Patrick
Leahy and Representative Sam Farr to repeal Section
771 of the Omnibus Appropriations Bill.  Repealing
this section is in the interest of consumers, organic
farmers and the environment. Repealing this section
will encourage continued growth of organic
agricultural production in the United States, one of
the bright prospects for U.S. agriculture overall.

The Senate bill is Leahy's Organic Restoration Act S.
457 You can find your Senator here -
http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm

The House bill is Farr's Organic Restoration Act HR
955
You can find your Representative here -
http://www.house.gov/house/MemberWWW_by_State.html

Representative Farr's office has asked that we target
the following Representatives, if you know of folks
that live in their states please
forward on this email to them.
Allen Boyd, Jr. (D-FL/2) 202-225-5235 Ag Aide:Charla
Penn
Jerold Nadler (D-NY/8) 202-225-5635 Ag Aide: Kisette

Jim McDermott (D-WA/7) 202-225-3106 Ag Aide: Sean
Hughes Wayne
Gilchrest (R-MD/1) 202-225-5311 Ag Aide: Jeri Finke

Please also let your local health food store know what
you are doing.
Tell them to carry NO products by Fieldale Farms, the
company in GA that instigated this movement to gut the
organic livestock feed standards.
They also produce poultry under the Springer Mountain
Farms and Redding labels.

To contact the Fieldale Farms Corporation:

conversion sizes that will be used:

234x60 half-banner->192x48

Subject: sagas_mobile_gaming_workshop

call for participation

Please note the forthcoming deadline for application (15.3.2003)
for the sagas writing interactive fiction Mobile Gaming Workshop.

directors, producers, developers, artists, designers to further narrative
content development for interactive media.


Mobile Gaming Workshop 3.4. - 9.4.2003
HFF, Munich
held by Anthony Dunne + Fiona Raby
//////Anthony Dunne and Fiona Raby are partners in Design Practice Dunne &

Anthony leads a teaching unit in Design Product and Fiona in Architecture &

recently purchased by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
Their recent book ŒDesign Noir: The Secret Life of Electronic Objects¹ is
published by August/Birkhauser./////

Future Psychology and the Wireless World
A future wireless world with bluetooth technologies assumes computers will
become absorbed into everyday objects and environments. The mobile phone, a
hand held remote control enables continuity and connectivity. The technology
disappears. The city is HiRes. We enter a world of ambiguity. Context,
material culture and behaviour already provides complex readings and
meanings of this place. The rules are irrational and contradictory. There is
space for interpretation. It lies within the ambiguity, between what the
technology is doing and what people believe it is doing.  Belief and
imagination are powerful tools. Is this our way in?

Participants will form teams of three to five members and develop during
this intense 5-day workshop fictional concepts for wireless devices
considering the challenges, limitations and advantages coming with the
choice of designing for mobile technology.

Participation fees:
freelancers 400,00 EUR
company delegates: 1.600,00 EUR
Funding for travel or hotel accommodation - to a limited extend - available.
