Ok, this is what I have for you;

International Bear Rendezvous is an annual gathering of bears and bear-lovers held in San Francisco. It is hosted by the Bears of San Francisco, who conceived of Rendezvous as a weekend of fun and fundraising.

    Mollie Stone’s Coming to the Castro in March

    by Accidental Bear

    Something new, something old, something blue, something… blah blah Fuck it, we still cant get married ( for real , for real), but god dammit we’re getting Mollie Stones. To me it balances out the universe somewhat (somewhat). My only experience with M.S.s was when i was living in Sausalito, CA for a hot minute and Mollies Stones was my treat to myself after a long day.. I actually like it over Whole Foods and thier prepared yummies are to die for. Stoners will have a new destination for their munchies now in the Castro. I can already hear the first complaint though,

    ” Sooooooooooooooooooooooo expensive”, random costumer who likes to yap!

    73 million sharks are killed annually for ( ASIAN)fin soup

    by Accidental Bear

    I say capture these fishermen, put painful hooks through their big toes, smear fish guts and blood over their faces, then dangle them up side down into shark infested water and let the sharks snack on their pea brains.

    Shark-Catching Nations Fail To Protect Threatened Species

    VIA http://www.huffingtonpost.com

    NICOLE WINFIELD 01/27/11 03:10 PM   AP


    ROME — Two environmental groups on Thursday accused the 20 countries that catch the most sharks of failing to fulfill promises made to the U.N. to better conserve the animals that are increasingly threatened with extinction.

    In 1999, more than 100 governments adopted a plan of action at the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization to try to stem overfishing of sharks, pledging, among other things, to develop national action plans to ensure that shark catches are sustainable.

    The non-governmental groups Traffic and the Pew Environment Group said Thursday that only 13 of the top 20 shark catching countries had developed national plans, and that it was unclear if such plans had done any good where they were adopted.

    They issued their report ahead of a meeting next week of government members of the FAO’s fisheries committee, which will discuss the state of the world’s fisheries in detail.

    Some 73 million sharks are killed annually, primarily to meet the high demand in Asia for fins which are used in shark fin soup. ( BASTARDS)

    Because sharks are slow growing, late to mature and produce few young, they are unable to replenish their populations as quickly when they are caught. As a result, some 30 percent of all shark species are now threatened or nearly threatened with extinction.

    Traffic and Pew analyzed fisheries data and made a list of the top 20 shark catchers which account for nearly 80 percent of the total shark catch reported globally. In order, the top 10 are Indonesia, India, Spain, Taiwan, Argentina, Mexico, Pakistan, United States, Japan, and Malaysia. Yet according to the two groups, Indonesia has only made a draft national plan and India is developing one. Other countries have adopted them but, because reporting is voluntary, it’s not clear if they’ve been implemented or have done any good.

    The groups urged governments at the FAO meeting next week to have the U.N. agency complete a thorough review to determine what countries have and haven’t done to comply with their pledges to manage their fisheries.

    “The fate of the world’s sharks is in the hands of the top 20 shark catchers, most of whom have failed to demonstrate what, if anything, they are doing to save these imperiled species,” said Glenn Sant, Traffic’s global marine program leader.
