So we can use headphones to turn 1 room into 3. This offers something for those who like Bands or Djs, and still room for those who want to learn about the industry hear people speak. Instead of having our DJs on loud speakers that can blow out your eardrums and often make it hard to have a chat. We use a transmitter to send the music to the Heartbeat Headphones. The headphones give you personal volume control and the option to choose between one of 3 channels. If you ever want to have that conversation just slide them off your ear or around your neck. Why is it Canna? Because we Canna here in Oregon so we thought we would take the opportunity to show some Love and shine a little light on the folks who have been working hard for years to perfect their craft right here in the state you know and Love. We will be featuring a variety of Oregon vendors and products. We will be bringing out 300 headphones and running 3 channels at this event and have Vendors , Samples, Giveaways and more.

Dr. Ken Buesseler, the world’s foremost marine radiochemist and expert on the effects of the Fukushima disaster in the oceans, will lecture in Portland on June 2nd. His lecture will explain basic information on what radiation is and what it means to be able to measure radiation, how the crisis at the Fukushima nuclear plant is affecting the Pacific ocean and what we can do to help. Dr. Buesseler believes strongly in the abilities of the people to be able to collect, understand and analyze data and has used that conviction to power his newest project, www.ourradioactiveoceans.org , a website that empowers people in their understanding of radiation and science and relies on crowdsourced information. Dr. Buesseler is a Senior Scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution who specializes in the study of natural and man-made radionuclides in the ocean. His work includes studies of fallout from atmospheric nuclear weapons testing, assessments of Chernobyl impacts on the Black Sea, and examination of radionuclide contaminants in the Pacific resulting from the Fukushima nuclear power plants. Dr. Buesseler has served as Chair of the Marine Chemistry and Geochemistry Department at WHOI, as Executive Scientist of the US Joint Global Ocean Fluxes Planning and Data Management Office and two years as an Associate Program Director at the US National Science Foundation, Chemical Oceanography Program. In 2009 he was elected Fellow of the American Geophysical Union and in 2011 he was noted as the top cited ocean scientist by the Times Higher Education for the decade 2000-2010. He is currently Director of the new Center for Marine and Environmental Radioactivity at WHOI. More info at his Café Thorium web site www.cafethorium.whoi.edu ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Music will be DJed by Maria. The night will also feature ocean-themed artwork by some of Portland’s finest artists and a question and answer period lead by Dr. Buesseler. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This is a limited- seating event.

A $5-$10 donation will be accepted at the door, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Hailed by The Nation’s Dave Zirin as “a tour de force that serves both the movement for reproductive rights and the art of theater with extreme effectiveness,” MOM BABY GOD is an immersive one-woman show that brings audiences face-to-face with the anti-abortion movement. The show follows Jessica Beth Giffords, a 15-year-old girl who is equal parts Justin Bieber superfan and aspiring pro-life celebrity, as she attends the Students for Life of America Conference. Throughout the hour-long solo performance, we follow Jessica as she absorbs the misinformation in a abstinence-only workshop and struggles to contain her crush on a flirtatious Christian boy who sports a purity ring. Six other characters based on real-life pro-life activists--from crisis pregnancy center directors to ministers to self-described “pro-life feminists”-- provide humorous, insightful and alarming looks into the anti-abortion movement at a time when reproductive rights are at the center of U.S. political debate. Developed by reproductive rights activist, actor and playwright Madeline Burrows, MOM BABY GOD is based on a year of immersive research and interviews at anti-abortion conferences, fundraisers and rallies. Wednesday and Thursday March 5 and March 6, 2014 at 8 pm. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door and can be purchased at mombabygod.com/schedule Show runs 1 hour with no intermission. Optional 30 minute post-show talk-back with the production team about the show and the attack on reproductive rights.
