Subject:Free & FUN Language Classes!

Bonjour! Buenos Dias! Ni hao! Merhaba! Mabuhay!

My name is Freidricka and I volunteer with a FUN not-for-profit organization called The Global Language Network (GLN). We're working hard to make language classes FREE and accessible to the San Francisco community. [By the way, try to guess which languages I used to say "hello" in the beginning and "thanks" in the end of this email]

Did you know…
…that right now 260+ GLN volunteers are teaching their native languages (55+ languages!) in Washington, DC to hundreds of community members.

We've partnered with the World Bank to train teachers and help with language resources. Right now we're just in Washington, DC, because only people in DC want to have FUN learning languages—and for FREE—right?
No way! I told everyone at GLN that San Francisco would definitely be interested in something like this, right???

So here's where I need your help…

This is our chance to bring free language classes to the community…but only if we get enough support from YOU!!

FREE language classes in San Francisco: as easy as 1, 2, 3.

1. Invite your friends to join Global Language Network - San Francisco (http://tinyurl.com/GLN-San-Fran-Facebook).

2. Help us find 1 or more college students to set-up a student group at their college.

3. GLN supplies new student group all resources necessary to start offering FREE language classes.

Start helping now to get GLN set-up in San Francisco by fall 2008!


The Global Language Network is a not-for-profit organization that makes the education of language and culture free to everyone.

Email us or just yell really loud if you can help out with our outreach efforts in San Fran or any other location.
And if you're a college student (or make decisions for a college student) and want to help set up a GLN Chapter at your college let us know!

The founder of GLN, Andrew, will be in San Francisco in the next several days, so this would be a perfect opportunity to meet and discuss!

For volunteering and/or entertaining information please contact: Info@TheGLN.org

To help set-up a GLN Chapter at your college please contact: Create@TheGLN.org

Thanks! Merci! Gracias! Bedankt! Obrigado! Salamat!

The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition is pleased to announce the release of its 2008 GENIUS Survey in partnership with Ernst & Young.  GenderPAC works to ensure that classrooms, communities and workplaces are safe for everyone to learn, grow and succeed.


The Gender Equality National Index for Universities & Schools (GENIUS), GenderPAC’s most recent effort to end discrimination and promote awareness, encourages colleges and universities to recognize the benefits of a GenderSAFEtm campus - supportive equitable and protective for all students. Choosing to participate in GENUIS sends a strong public statement that bullying or discriminating based on the race, sex or gender of a student, faculty, or staff member is not tolerated at your institution


Fill out the survey at:  www.gpac.org/GENIUS2008survey, and make sure that we have data for as many schools as possible. Your voice will help us continue to work towards a safe and welcoming environment for every student.


While we greatly appreciate the interest taken in GENIUS by students, staff and faculty at academic institutions outside of the United States, at this time GENIUS is only able to track schools based in the United States.

As you know, tomorrow is Super Tuesday, where more than 22 states will hold their primaries or caucuses—one state which will be California. I am voting for BARACK OBAMA because I feel that he has the necessary experience to serve this country and has also utilized grassroots efforts to engage and excite millions of people, transcending race, ethnicity, gender, ability, immigrant status, political party, etc. These past couple of months, America has seen someone who can CHANGE policies and the lives of many, give the ordinary person HOPE for a better tomorrow and has done so with INTEGRITY, RESPECT and POISE.

Counting down the hours before Super Tuesday begins, I wanted to share a new independent video about BARACK OBAMA. For me, it embodies the sense of inspiration that so many people feel about his candidacy. Words don't do it justice, you have to watch it for yourself

I hope you will join me in voting for Barack Obama. Find your polling place: http://my.barackobama.com/CAlookup

It's time to put an end to the say-anything-to-win politics of the past. Together we can face the challenges of the future with a new kind of politics and a new kind of leadership. If you already know where you'll be voting on Tuesday, take a minute to invite five of your friends to look up their polling place:http://my.barackobama.com/CAlookup or in CA you can call the state registrars office at 1-800-345-VOTE


BTW here are some pix from Fridays Obama rally outside of Kerckhoff Hall at UCLA with Tatyana Ali, Max Kennedy (RFK's son), Kerry Washington, and California State Majority Assemblymember Karen Bass + some pix from yesterdays Obama rally at Pauley Pavilion (UCLA) with Oprah, Caroline Kennedy, Michelle Obama, Stevie Wonder and surprise guest Maria Shriver

Most of the pictures are under the cut because they are pretty big

Here are a few details and rules that will help make the voting process run smoothly. Make sure to share these with your friends:

*Polls are open from 7:00 a.m. to at least 8:00 p.m. Anyone in line at the time the polls close is allowed to vote.

*Voters have the right to cast a provisional ballot even if their name is not listed on the voting rolls. If a voter is at the wrong polling location and has time to get to the correct polling location before polls close at 8:00 p.m., they should go to the correct one and vote with a regular ballot instead of voting with a provisional ballot at the wrong location.

*If you declined to select a political party when you registered to vote, you can still vote for Barack Obama if you request a Democratic ballot from the poll worker. Make sure you mark "Democratic" in the appropriate space or the vote might not be counted.

*Voters have the right to return a completed vote-by-mail ballot to any precinct in their county.

*If you have any difficulties, you can call the California Obama Election Protection Hotline:
o LOS ANGELES: (310) 801-9546 or (310) 779-0816
o SAN FRANCISCO/BAY AREA: (510) 520-5025
o OAKLAND/EAST BAY: (415) 606-6043
o SAN DIEGO: (619) 770-7105

find your polling place in CA: http://my.barackobama.com/CAlookup or call the state registrars office at 1-800-345-VOTE

In other states please google your state registrars office or visit: http://my.barackobama.com/page/content/statepages

Were you in Dolores Park last night? $20k reward!!

Please help the drummer of Tinkture

Were you in Dolores Park (San Francisco) last night? PLEASE HELP OUT!!

Roisin (pronounced Row-Sheen) Isner, drummer for the San Francisco band Tinkture lost her hand in Dolores Park last night watching the fireworks. Her dad sent the email below to some local media outlets...

Subject: Roisin Isner, Tinkture drummer

I am Roisin's father. July 4th, Roisin and friends were in Dolores Park watching fireworks. Some stupid piece of shit threw an M60 at them. It landed on Roisin's right hand and blew it apart. She will undego surgery later this morning but it doesn't look good. Most likely she will lose her index finger; second and third fingers will also be permanently impaired and disfigured. Needless to say, her musical career is over.

I want this fucker. Media attention will help flush him out. People know who did it and I'm offering $20,000 for a name. Please do whatever is necessary to get the story out. Do so and I will reward you as well.

Thank you,
Chris Isner

Subject:Moving to San Francisco in autumn.

My girlfriend and I intend on moving to SF in the autumn, mid August to early September. I'll be transferring into City College of San Francisco and she, freshly graduated from an art school with a bachelors in Time Based Media but is also a highly skilled illustrator, plans on finding a job that may or may not be related to her major depending on pay and circumstances involved. Ideally, I'd want to live within bicycling or Vespa-ing distance of school.

We currently live in Columbus, OH. Despite having grown used to paying a mere $300 or so in rent each month here, I've fully accepted the fact that I'll be paying well over three times that amount in SF. At the absolute most, I can afford $1200 but would prefer to pay less for a 1 bd or studio. Some of the neighborhoods I'm considering are the Sunset, Ashbury Haight, and perhaps any other trendy area that is safe.

I gladly welcome any tips and suggestions.

Subject:Hi There.

Hello everyone. I'm a newbie to this community.

Basically I'm looking for some insider expertise on life at CCSF as well as SF in general. I'm planning to attend in Fall '07 and I'd like to focus my studies around the Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Studies courses.

Currently I live in NW WI, so I have very limited knowledge about the campuses as well as finding ways to live cheaply in San Francisco. I'm basically looking for guidance on everything, jobs, housing, etc. Any and all help would be appreciated.

Subject:Care to share your computing @ CCSF stories?


My name is Kaitlyn, and I'm working on a co-op placement at the University of Waterloo, mostly in the Arts Faculty Helpdesk, but also for the Information Systems and Technology department. IST is trying to keep up with students' computing needs here, and we'd like to know what you like and dislike about your school's approach.

Do you find your teachers' expectations exceed what the school can support when it comes to computing? Does your school have a required laptop program but doesn't support it? Or, do you love how well you can stay wired on your campus?

If you'd like to share your thoughts, please do so by filling out a 5-10 minute survey here:

The results will only be identifiable by IP address, and it will not be used in the analysis. I will only link your school to your answers.

If you have any questions, you can email me at aco.helpdesk {at} gmail.com.

Thanks, and I hope you're having a great fall semester.

~ Kaitlyn

Subject:Vote NO on Prop. 85!

Hey All - My name is Justin. I'm a volunteer with NO on 85, a coalition that includes Planned Parenthood, The League of Women Voters, NARAL, ACLU and others.

In case you haven't been following it, Prop 85 is an initiative that would prohibit abortions for minors in California until 48 hours after their parents have been notified. This initiative is dangerous because it would force teens from violent or otherwise abusive homes to involve their parents. And the backers of 85, like Jim Holman and Life on the Ballot, The Traditional Values Coalition and Right to Life of central CA are the same people who want to overturn Roe v. Wade and ban abortion altogether.

Prop 85 is a dangerous and misleading initiative that threatens the health and safety of California’s most vulnerable teens and a woman’s right to choose. Please, help us convince other voters to think outside their bubble and vote NO on Prop. 85!


Check out our new video, “Jane’s Journey,” that chronicles the judicial maze a scared, pregnant teen would be forced to go through if Prop. 85 passes:


Watch our Think Outside Your Bubble TV ad.


Vote NO on Prop. 85!
