      .......................MAY MEETING PREVIEW:

      .....6:15 PM: Warner Brothers Cartoons (Animation Associates)
      ...............6:30 PM: Currently Cool (Ice Nine)





      ..........You are invited to join us for an evening of science
      fiction, fantasy, horror and animation on Saturday, May 12, 2007.
      The meeting will be held in the Saddle River Valley Cultural Center,
      307 West Saddle River Road, Upper Saddle River, Bergen County, New
      Jersey. Directions appear below.



      PRE MEETING ACTIVITIES:

      ..........Our plans to show some classic Warner Brothers cartoons
      before last month's meeting fell through, so we'll give it another
      shot this month. The Animation Associates screenings will commence
      around 6:15 PM.

      ..........Our Ice Nine discussion of any cool books, movies, TV,
      comics or anime you have recently encountered will begin around 6:30
      PM. Share your reading and viewing experiences with the group.

      OUR GUEST


      ..........Joe Lennox is a lifelong fan of space travel. His Lennox
      Space Museum is described as "the largest private collection in the
      country." Mr Lennox has written of his experiences with NASA,
      astronauts, and a succession of "hair brained and wacky schemes" in
      his book, VISION FOR SPACE: THE WINDING JOURNEY THROUGH LIFE AND THE
      SPACE PROGRAM AS SEEN BY AN ORDINARY JOE.

      LOOKING AT SUMMER:

      ..........The months of June, July, and August will be held at
      bookstores in the area. There are special circumstances regarding
      each of these meetings.

      June 9, 2007
      ...............This meeting will be held at Borders Books in the
      Interstate Shopping Mall on Route 17 South in Ramsey, New Jersey.
      The Ice Nine discussion will be held at 7:00 PM. The main event will
      begin at 8:00 PM. Due to store policies, we will collect no dues at
      the meeting, however anyone who would pay dues at a regular meeting
      is responsible for remitting them at the next meeting they attend.

      July 14, 2007
      ...............This meeting will be held at Bennett Books in Wyckoff,
      New Jersey. NOTE THAT THIS MEETING WILL BE HELD EARLIER IN THE DAY!
      The Association will have the use of the store from 4:00 PM until
      8:00 PM. The Ice Nine discussion will be held at 4:00 PM. The
      general meeting will begin at 5:00 PM. Standard (and owed) dues will
      be collected.

      ...............Bennett Books normally closes at 6:00 PM on
      Saturdays. Staying open until 10:00 PM for our group proved too much
      a strain on John and Betty Bennett, which is why we shifted last
      year's meetings to their late night, Friday. We believe that
      starting a couple of hours earlier than usual on a Saturday works
      better for most people than moving to an entirely different night.

      August 11, 2007

      Directions to meeting site:

      ...............Saddle River Valley Cultural Center
      ......................305 West Saddle River
      .......................Upper Saddle River
      ....................Bergen County, New Jersey


      The Cultural Center looks like a classic little white church, steeple
      and all. The parking lot is not too large, but it's okay to use the
      much bigger lot of the Methodist Church diagonally across the street.

      Important Note: The Cultural Center is on WEST Saddle River Road.
      One block further over is EAST Saddle River Road. Unlike streets in
      New York, East does not turn into West. The roads are on opposite
      banks of the Saddle River which is nothing more than a stream at this
      point.



      FROM ROUTE 17 NORTHBOUND:

      ..........Exit ROUTE 17 NORTH at the sign which reads SADDLE RIVER /
      WOODCLIFF LAKE. (This is the exit after Sheridan Avenue, Ho Ho
      Kus.) This exit puts you onto EAST ALLENDALE AVENUE heading East.
      Stay on road for about 1/2 mile and turn left at the first traffic
      light onto WEST SADDLE RIVER ROAD. Drive north for 1-3/4 miles.
      Shortly after passing a brick Catholic Church, the Church of the
      Presentation, on your left hand side you cross into Upper Saddle
      River. The Cultural Center is on your left hand side. If you come
      to a traffic light you have slightly overshot and hit LAKE STREET.

      Note: You will see a sign marked WEST SADDLE RIVER ROAD on Route 17
      northbound well to the south of where you have been told to leave
      17. If you take this exit, you will eventually get where you want to
      be, but it will take you a lot longer to get there.



      FROM ROUTE 17 SOUTHBOUND:

      ..........Exit ROUTE 17 SOUTH at SADDLE RIVER / WOODCLIFF LAKE exit.
      This puts you onto EAST ALLENDALE ROAD heading East. You drive under
      the highway. Then follow the directions from Route 17 Northbound.

      Note: This way takes you a little bit longer than the exit for UPPER
      SADDLE RIVER, but it spares you making hairpin turns on steep hills
      at night in bad weather on an unfamiliar road.



      FROM THE GARDEN STATE PARKWAY NORTHBOUND:


      ..........Take Exit 172, GRAND AVENUE, MONTVALE. (This is the last
      exit in New Jersey and is just past the Montvale Service Area). Turn
      left at the exit ramp and head west on GRAND AVENUE. There are a lot
      of small towns in this area, and the road that you're on will keep
      changing its name. At different points it is called GRAND AVENUE,
      MONTVALE ROAD, RAMSEY ROAD and LAKE STREET. At the second traffic
      light you will be at the intersection of LAKE STREET and EAST SADDLE
      RIVER ROAD. It has two landmarks that anyone in the area will know
      about: a 7-11 type store called Elmers and a Texaco station. Keep
      driving west. Do not turn. Turn left at the next traffic light onto
      WEST SADDLE RIVER ROAD. The Cultural Center is 1/10 of a mile down
      the road on your right.



      FROM ROCKLAND COUNTY VIA ROUTE 59:

      ..........Follow ROUTE 59 until you come to Norris Pontiac in Monsey
      and turn south at the traffic light unto ROUTE 306. This road is
      also called EAST SADDLE RIVER ROAD. Head south towards New Jersey.
      (Note: Although the maps show this road as Route 306, and that's
      what everyone calls it, after you make the turn, the sign reads ROUTE
      73. Don't ask me to explain it.) Stay on ROUTE 306 for 2.3 miles
      Note that there is a long stretch between the first and second
      traffic lights.

      ..........Turn right at the second traffic light which is the
      intersection of EAST SADDLE RIVER ROAD and LAKE STREET. A Texaco
      station and Elmers are at this corner. Proceed west and turn left at
      the next traffic light onto WEST SADDLE RIVER ROAD. The Cultural
      Center is 1/10 of a mile down the road on your right.

      Speaking of Star Ships, the galaxy our little planet is in is called
      The Milky Way, roughly speaking the Milky Way Galaxy is said to be
      about 100,000 light years from end to end. Light travels at 186,000
      miles per second. A light year equals the distance light would travel
      in one year. It is about 90 million miles or about 8 light minutes
      from the Sun to the Earth. To reach escape velocity from the earth
      you need to be going about 25,000 miles per hour.

      Downtown Milky Way, the core of our galaxy, is very crowded to stars
      and planets and most likely all sorts of life.

      The earth is located near the edge of the Milky Way
      galaxy. A long long way from Downtown Milky Way.

      If you were to set off for our earth from the center of our galaxy
      some 50,000 light years away you would have to be going very very
      fast to get here in anything approaching a reasonable amount of time.

      You might decide to put yourself in stasis, but who would wake you
      up? We hope your Starship would have enough energy to get here, and
      to wake you up.


      How would that work? Would you use a famous ramscoop
      hydrogen gathering device like those discussed by famous Science
      Fiction writer Larry Niven?

      Would you use the famous Star Trek Warp Drive?

      How about the wormholes used in Farscape and StarGate SG1?

      What about that wormhole located near that planet on
      that later than Next Gen Star Trek series which reminded some of us
      of Bonanza, as opposed to Wagon Train?

      What's your idea of how a Star Ship could work to facilitate intra-
      galactic travel in our galaxy?

      How about inter-galactic travel? If you thought the distance from
      Downtowm Milky Way to our little part of
      the universe, about 50,000 light years, was far, consider this:
      "Distance to the Nearest Galaxy Shu, Frank H. The Physical
      University: An Introduction to Astronomy. California: University
      Science Books, 1982: 291. "The modern value for this distance is 2
      million light years away, which places it well outside the confines
      of the Milky Way." 2 million light years
      (Andromeda)."

      Wow! better pack more than a lunch for that trip.

      What about the Andromeda TV series? Any fans here?

      I loved it. How about you?

      "World Book Encyclopedia. New York: World Book, 1998: 8-9. "People in
      the Northern Hemisphere can see the Andromeda Galaxy, which is about
      2 million light years away." 2 million light years
      (Andromeda)"

      Probably won't be home for supper if we ship out for
      Andromeda this afternoon.

      "Jastrow, Robert. Red Giants and White Dwarfs. New York: Norton,
      1990: 236. "The nearest galaxy of comparable size to our own is the
      Great Nebula in Andromeda, located approximately 2 million light
      years away from us" 2 million light years
      (Andromeda)"

      Yup, the nearest galaxy turns out to be far far away. At light speed
      anyway.

      And at warp factor what?


      How long would it take Voyager to get home from
      the famous quadrant it got sent to? At what speed?

      What about something closer? Well....

      "Moche, Dinah L. Astronomy. New York: Wiley, 1996: 154. "The Large
      Magellanic Cloud and the Small Magellanic Cloud are held by a force
      of gravity at a distance of about 169,000 light years and 210,000
      light years away, respectively." 169,000 light years
      (Large Magellanic Cloud)

      210,000 light years (Small Magellanic Cloud)"

      Quite a hike, even for The Borg I would think....
      What do you think?

      Science Fiction Fans Action Items And More

      While we do not yet know who the Sci-Fi Channel will
      end up being owned by, if news stories that state that GE may sell
      NBC are true, we do hope that Science Fiction Fans will prepare now
      to lobby whoever the new owners may be to keep StarGate SG-1 on the
      air. We hope that the current owners of the Sci-Fi Channel will also
      keep StarGate SG-1 on the air despite widely publicized plans to do
      otherwise.

      http://www.scifi.com/stargate/

      http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0118480/

      "The (Sci-Fi) channel was launched on September 24, 1992 as a sister
      cable channel to USA Network by then-owners Paramount Pictures
      (which was later acquired by Viacom in 1994) and MCA (then part of
      Japanese electronic giant Matsushita), the owner of Universal
      Studios, each with a 50% stake in the venture.

      The channel was seen as a natural fit with classic film and
      television series that both studios had in their vaults, including
      Rod Serling's Night Gallery and Paramount's Star Trek and classic
      Universal horror films such as Dracula and Frankenstein. Star Trek
      creator Gene Roddenberry and author Isaac Asimov were among those on
      the advisory board.[1]

      [[Image:Sci-fi logo 1999-2003.jpg|thumb|left|Second Sci-Fi Channel
      logo, used from 1999-2002.]] In 1997, Seagram, which bought MCA in
      1995, purchased Viacom's interest in USA and Sci Fi, and sold the
      networks to Barry Diller in 1998 to form USA Networks, Inc. Diller
      later sold USA's non-shopping (film and TV) assets, including Sci-
      Fi, to Universal's then-parent Vivendi Universal in 2002. Vivendi's
      film, television, and cable TV assets were then merged with General
      Electric's NBC to form NBC Universal in 2004."

      "GE shares surge after Citi suggests selling NBC
      The Courier-Journal
      Friday, April 27, 2007

      UPDATED: 11:19 AM

      The Courier-Journal



      Shares of General Electric were at their highest levels since
      January today after Citigroup analysts issued a report suggesting
      the company sell off its NBC, GE Money and real estate businesses.

      The Citigroup report doesn't make any suggestions regarding GE's
      Louisville-based Consumer & Industrial division.

      Citigroup analysts argue that by spinning off NBC, GE Money and the
      real estate operations, the company would be more focused for
      investors and its global infrastructure business - aircraft engines,
      power generation, oil & gas and locomotives - would stand out more.

      "Such a move would create a focused infrastructure juggernaut that
      investors
      could more easily understand," the analysts wrote, and justify a $45
      stock price.

      GE's industrial business has a strong position globally and can
      provide lucrative revenue streams from service offerings, supporting
      a strong stock price, Citigroup said.

      GE shares were up 91 cents this morning at $36.75"

      In other Sci-Fi Channel related news has anyone
      reading this seen any episodes of Pain Killer Jane yet?

      "Painkiller Jane is a television series based on the comic book
      character of the same name. Airing on the US Sci Fi Channel starting
      April 13, 2007, it stars Kristanna Loken as the titular character.

      Tagline: She's hard to resist, and harder to kill."

      Wants you! Our Science Fiction group is for everyone 21 or older
      regardless of background or marital status. Younger fans should find
      another group. Please introduce yourself when you join and
      periodically as
      new members keep joining. We plan to get together at restaurants and
      to go
      to movies. We will see them in movie theaters,and, if people are kind
      enough, on people's home VCRs, or DVD
      players, for the technologically advanced among us. Buy your own
      movie
      tickets. Buy your own meals at
      Restaurants. Hopefully a typical event would involve going to a
      Science
      Fiction Movie and then to a Restaurant to discuss the movie we just
      saw.
      Are you a single Science Fiction fan looking for a soulmate? Perhaps
      you
      will find that person here. This club is not a New Jersey singles
      group per se,
      and is open to anyone over 21, regardless of background or marital
      status,
      nonetheless, love is a
      good thing.

      Wants you! Our Science Fiction group is for everyone 21 or older
      regardless of background or marital status. Younger fans should find
      another group. Please introduce yourself when you join and
      periodically as
      new members keep joining. We plan to get together at restaurants and
      to go
      to movies. We will see them in movie theaters,and, if people are kind
      enough, on people's home VCRs, or DVD
      players, for the technologically advanced among us. Buy your own
      movie
      tickets. Buy your own meals at
      Restaurants. Hopefully a typical event would involve going to a
      Science
      Fiction Movie and then to a Restaurant to discuss the movie we just
      saw.
      Are you a single Science Fiction fan looking for a soulmate? Perhaps
      you
      will find that person here. This club is not a New Jersey singles
      group per se,
      and is open to anyone over 21, regardless of background or marital
      status,
      nonetheless, love is a
      good thing. In the parts of New Jersey where the
      science fiction clubs we know of operate there is also a
      very high percentage of Jewish residents. Many science fiction fans
      and
      science fiction writers and even science fiction stars, like Leonard
      Nimoy,
      (Mr. Spock), of Star Trek, and William Shatner (Captain Kirk), of
      Star
      Trek, also happen to be Jewish. Most science fiction fans I know are
      single
      men, and many of them, at least in places like New Jersey, are
      Jewish.


      Many science fiction fans in New Jersey also happen to be Jewish.
      Most
      science fiction fans are male. For the single Jewish woman in New
      Jersey
      joining a science fiction group may be the ideal way to find her
      ideal man.
      Unlike most singles events, which tend to be attended by more women
      than
      men,most science fiction events are attended by more men than women.


      If you happen to be Jewish, Single and over 21
      Please state that you are Jewish, Single, 21 or over, when you apply
      to join

      c-span, also known as C-SPAN provides much valuable information.
      However, we are
      distressed that programs like
      Washington Journal on c-span seem to provide a forum for
      anti-Semites and enemies of Israel and the Jewish people in
      general who seem to not only call into that t.v. show, but get
      through, and get
      on the air, where they are seldom interupted or cut off by the show's
      moderators. We feel that a 2 minute delay could enable the show's
      moderators to
      screen out the anti-Semites and enemies of Israel and the Jewish
      people, however
      no such 2 minute delay seems to be in place. Moreover the moderators
      of that
      show and others do not seem to be of a mind to cut off the anti-
      Semites and
      other enemies of Israel and the Jewish people in general who
      regularly call into
      that show and others
      on c-span. We have therefore created this Yahoo Group in the hopes
      that members
      of the group will become regular viewers of c-span and will call in
      regularly to
      Washington Journal and other c-span call in t.v. shows, to support
      Israel and
      the Jewish people and to counter the anti-Semites and other enemies
      of Israel
      and the Jewish people whose calls are regularly aired on c-span. We
      also hope
      that members of our Yahoo Group will contact their U.S.
      Senators and members of Congress and President Bush at
      http://www.whitehouse.gov to see what can be done about
      the situation at c-span.

      If you know of other pro-Israel on line groups and/or pro-Israel
      groups that meet in real life please post the information about them.




      We highly recommend http://www.jewsforjudaism.org/
      "the Jewish community's leading response to the multi-million dollar
      efforts of cults and evangelical" (Xtians) "who target Jews for
      conversion."




      (Meshugeneh means crazy in Yiddish (so-called Messy an eck Jews,
      they spell it somewhat differently, are not really Jews, they are
      Xtians pretending to be Jews to convert Jews to their Xtian
      religion.)


      There are many avenues for Jewish activism. Support of Israel,
      Support of the Jewish people, Opposition to anti-Semitism, to name a
      few.

      We believe that it is vital for Jewish survival that single Jews
      meet other single Jews, marry one another, and raise their children
      as Jews. Because there is a hole in our calendar from Friday night
      to Saturday night during which many single Jews go to non-Jewish
      singles events, meet non-Jews, marry non-Jews, and have children
      from those marriages who are not raised as Jews, the Jewish people
      faces a very severe problem. We urge everyone who reads this to
      contact his or her Rabbi and demand that his or her Rabbi hold
      regular Jewish singles Onegs on Friday nights.

      We feel that it is vitally important that single Jews go to Jewish
      singles events and meet other Jewish singles at those events.

      If you know anyone who happens to be Jewish who is hosting a
      singles event please ask him or her to consider hosting events just
      for Jewish singles.

      We also offer the opportunity at our on line Jewish singles groups
      to post your Jewish singles introductions and to respond to other
      Jewish singles introductions.

      Please do so regularly. Please state that you are Jewish, single and
      over 21
      in your introductions at our on line Jewish singles groups.

      One of the biggest complaints heard from many
      women who attend some singles events
      is that there are far more women than men
      in attendance.




      One of the biggest complaints heard from
      many men who attend most science fiction
      events is that there are far more men in
      attendance than women.


      Most science fiction fans are male.
      Many science fiction fans in places like
      New Jersey are also Jewish.

      There are science fiction clubs in many
      places. In New Jersey many science fiction
      club attendees are single Jewish men.

      The SCIENCE FICTION ASSOCIATON OF BERGEN
      COUNTY, NEW JERSEY http://www.sfabc.org
      is open to everyone regardless of marital status or background
      and is absolutely NOT a singles group
      nonetheless many single Jewish men attend its many functions.
