        ANTHROPOLOGIST DR. CHRIS KNIGHT, HE HAS A BOOK CALLED "BLOOD RELATIONS".
        KNIGHT EXPLAINS THAT PREHISTORIC WOMEN USE MENSTRUATION AS AN EXCUSE TO
        FORCE THEIR HUSBAND TO GO HUNTING, AND WHEN THEY RETURN THEY WOULD ENJOY A
        GOOD SEXUAL RELATION. IT WAS NECESSARY FOR THE WOMEN TO PROHIBIT SEXUAL
        RELATION IN THE HUNTING EXPEDITIONS. HE SAID THAT THE MENSTRUATION WASN'T AN
        OBSTACLE FOR SEX BUT IT HELP WOMAN TO HAVE THEIR FOOD.
        I WOULD LIKE YOU TO HELP BY SENDING ME INFORMATION ABOUT THE BOOK
        AND CHRIS KNIGHT. IF YOU CAN PLEASE TELL ME WHO CAN.

                Dear Colleagues,

                Practical Gatherings is offering two Gatherings in New York City in
                mid-October that may be of interest to you.

                "Forms of Engagement - your options as a practicing workplace
                anthropologist" for students on Saturday, October 14th, 2000.  Led by
                Madeline L. Ritter.

                "Inside & Outside - comparing challenges & opportunities" for
                professional workplace anthropologists and social scientists, on Monday,
                October 16th, 2000.  Led by Marietta Baba.

                If you'll be in the area and are interested in attending a Gathering
                please read on for more details on the Gatherings and registration
                information.  The complete fall schedule of Gatherings is on the web
                site at www.practicalgatherings.com.

                ----------------------------------------
                "Forms of Engagement - your options as a practicing workplace
                anthropologist" for students

                Saturday, October 14th, 2000,  9 - 5pm, 300 Riverside Dr., New York City

                Led by Madeline L. Ritter

                Students will be introduced to two ways of looking at the forms of
                engagement of practicing anthropologists:
                - forms of employment for practicing anthropologists; and
                - roles that anthropologists play in workplace practice

                Students will be introduced to the different practices in which
                anthropologists are involved: medical anthropology, work anthropology,
                public policy anthropology, and consumer/design anthropology.

                The employer-centered discussion will introduce students to the varying
                skill sets, credentials and benefits and challenges of the different
                forms of employment, and will be presented with bios of anthropologists
                falling within each of these employment models:
                - medium to large consulting firms
                - small consulting firms
                - design firms
                - research firms
                - corporations
                - research and development organizations
                - government and educational agencies
                - NGO assessment organizations
                - universities
                - self-employment
                - partnerships/alliances

                Students will be introduced to the concept of a personal marketing plan
                and will be given the opportunity to begin work on their plans and to
                receive feedback from other students and the workshop leader.

                Finally, there will be a discussion of the differing roles
                anthropologists play in the workplace:
                - engagement manager
                - project team member
                - design team member
                - researcher
                - internal change agent
                - evaluator/assessment specialist
                - product developer

                ----------------------------------------
                "Inside & Outside - Comparing challenges & opportunities"

                Monday, October 16, 2000,  9 - 5pm, 300 Riverside Dr., New York City

                Led by Marietta Baba

                - For professional workplace anthropologists and social scientists
                - Explore and uncover what's going on out there
                - Create alliances with one another

                This Gathering takes a look at what the issues are for anthropological
                workplace practitioners in different relationships to organizations.
                "Insiders" include employees of firms, such as internal consultants,
                managers, lab heads, or department members. "Outsiders" are external
                consultants, academics conducting applied work, and small firms who work
                with larger firms.

                The Gathering focuses on the challenges, pros and cons, and leverage
                options that each position affords. The discussion aims to raise issues
                about these different forms of practice, and promotes the consideration
                of alliances that insiders and outsiders may create with one another.

                Please Bring!
                Gatherings for professionals depend on bringing experienced
                practitioners into the room to inform the issue and participate in
                uncovering dilemmas and their resolutions.

                Please bring information about:
                - The work you do
                - The job you have
                - Your role on a project
                - Alliances in place for the project
                - The nature of projects you do
                - Who are your clients? (other firms? CEOs? Technologists? HR?
                Multiple?)

                Confidentiality will be respected!

                What is "Practical Gatherings"?

                Practical Gatherings, a membership organization, has been founded to
                support the growing profession of
                anthropological workplace practice. Gatherings are intimate,
                issue-oriented discussions and workshops for
                practicing anthropologists and social scientists, workplace
                practitioners, students, faculty & executives. Each Gathering is limited
                to 22 people.

                Why Practical Gatherings?

                "Practical Gatherings is exactly what Anthropology needs now. Our
                discipline is experiencing an explosion
                of interest from places where we have been virtually absent until
                recently. As faculty and students feel the
                growing demand for anthropology that is coming from work organizations,
                we need a means to prepare our
                colleagues to face the complex theoretical, methodological, and ethical
                challenges of engagement in that
                domain. Practical Gatherings is a comprehensive means to gather and
                transfer knowledge and experience
                across the network of professional practitioners who are focusing on
                studies of work. I can't think of a better way to meet our current
                needs."

                  The List
                  by Geov Parrish

                  I WANT a list.

                  I want a full accounting of every weapon in the country. Not
                  Iraq. I could give a fig
                  about
                  Iraq. It's dirt-poor, halfway around the world, almost completely disarmed, has
                  no way to attack us, and knows that any move to threaten anyone would be instantly suicidal.
                  America faces many threats. Iraq is not one. Among all the American-trained dictators plaguing the planet, Saddam is the least of our problems.

                  I want a list of our weapons.

                  After all, we pay for them--and pay and pay. And that was even before 9/11 and the
                  giant sucking wound where the federal surplus once was. That money, yours and mine,
                  went almost entirely for yet more weapons and the capacity to use them. I want an accounting.

                  It's the
                  United States; after all, that poses a threat, not just to its neighbours but
                  countries anywhere in the world. Ask Iraq, Afghanistan, Kosovo, Serbia, Pakistan, Sudan, Haiti, Somalia, Bosnia, Panama, Libya, or Grenada--all countries we've bombed or bullied
                  in the past 20 years. It's the
                  United States whose foreign policy now officially reserves
                  the right to invade any place in the world for any reason or none at all. It's the
                  United
                  States
                  that sells weapons to one or more sides of virtually every one of the five dozen
                  or so wars now raging. It's
                  America, with the oldest and biggest nuclear weapons program
                  in the world, the
                  U.S. alone, that has proudly used them. It's the United States that has shredded the world's arms-control structure, the U.S. that breaks international treaties
                  the way other countries fund health care. Routinely.

                  OURS ARE THE WEAPONS of choice for everyone from psychotic serial killers to jungle
                  guerrillas to kleptocratic dictators the world round. Every American embassy makes it
                  a priority to pay for the marketing, credit underwriting, and purchase of those weapons,
                  and closes the deal. It's the
                  U.S. that underwrites and trains intelligence agencies and
                  secret police the world over, including any number of countries where state torture and murder are the norm. We pay for it all. I want a list.

                  I want it in three weeks.

                  I want to know every single weapon or potential weapon possessed by the
                  United States.
                  Not just the Pentagon. Every single agency, down to the Mint and the Library of Congress.
                  If the Library of Congress' assistant medical archivist carries mace in her purse when she
                  goes to the parking garage, I want to know. I also want every potential weapon
                  government employees possess. Every firearm John Ashcroft and his NRA- loving
                  appointees own, and everyone else down to the grade C-3 summer interns. That includes dual-use weapons, like nail files, or certain kitchen spices which, when mixed with a nasal decongestant, can produce a splotchy red rash. I want the list. All of it. No typos, please.

                  But that's not all. It's not just our government that poses a threat to the world; corporate
                  America does, too. If Coca-Cola doesn't constitute an invading army, I don't know what
                  does. Therefore, I also want all of the weapons or potential weapons possessed by any
                  entity that does business in the
                  United States. Whether or not Americans own it. Air Botswana, this means you. That includes all employees and all subcontracting employees
                  and agencies. Like Coke's
                  Ouagadougou bottling plant. Can't be too careful.

                  You've got three weeks. And it had better be complete. And indexed.

                  OF COURSE, I DOUBT you'll co-operate. The Pentagon alone doesn't know what happened
                  to billions of dollars. Accounting individually for every paper cli p--after all, they're pointy--seems unlikely. I expect many companies won't fully cooperate, either.

                  They'll claim proprietary information or some other lame excuse.

                  Weasels.

                  We'll have to do inspections, of course. Unannounced, accompanied by a battalion or two. When they object, we'll call it part of their sustained pattern of non co-operation.

                  Have I mentioned that I retain the right to shoot down any aircraft that appear over the
                  skies of
                  Kentucky, Ohio, or Indiana? They'll probably pitch a fit about that, too.

                  But then, that's what you'd expect from people whose love of power is so fierce that
                  they'd willingly endanger their own people, right?

                  After all, by inspiring billions of people to loathe
                  America, it's you and I who are put at risk. We're the ones who'll walk past exploding hotels or work in collapsing office towers. We're
                  the collateral damage.

                  And we're paying for it, out of every pay check. We pay for the carnage. Now and later.

                  The least we can get is a list.

                  Three weeks.
