The Ship Inn, 61 Bridge Street, Milford, NJ 08848

Event Leader: Susan Schirmer at [masked]

Movie: “Surviving Progress”

Description: Technological advancement, economic development, population increase - are they signs of a thriving society or too much of a good thing? Executive Produced by Martin Scorsese, this provocative documentary explores the concept of progress in our modern world, guiding us through the major "progress traps" facing our civilization in the arenas of technology, economics, consumption, and the environment. Featuring powerful arguments from such visionaries as Jane Goodall, Margaret Atwood and Stephen Hawking, this enlightening and visually spectacular film invites us to contemplate the progress traps that destroyed past civilizations and that lie treacherously embedded in our own. 2011 - 120 minutes

Dinner: The Ship Inn is New Jersey’s First Brew Pub. It has a friendly atmosphere 2 blocks from the Delaware River. Seating overlooks the beautiful Harehokake Creek. Enjoy craft-brewed ales and British-inspired foods with locally sourced and ecologically responsible ingredients. The menu includes pasta, beef, chicken, seafood, and vegetarian entrees, as well as sandwiches, burgers, salads and British inspired appetizers. The Ship is pleased to offer separate billing.

    FYI: Details on Amazon had this film listed as 86 minutes but I watched it earlier this week and it's a full 120. So will most likely start the film closer to 7:20 so we can finish at a reasonable time.

    FOOD SAFETY Modernization Act (FSMA) Deadline:

    For anyone who's interested, thought I would share:

    -----------------
    "Food Safety Modernization Act:
    Will FDA Close Your Farm Markets and CSA?

    The FDA has extended the comment period for FSMA until this Friday, Nov. 22nd due to computer access problems! Comment today to protect the future of America's food supply. Email for full
    article on this issue at [masked].

    Does the FDA think 48 mill people in the US - 1 in 6 -
    are food poisoned by CSA's, farmers markets or your
    neighbor selling eggs - but not by using waste and water from your city sewer plants and the corporate agribusiness industry? Please tell FDA to make changes to FSMA proposal and allow American citizens to evaluate next proposal.

    Article on the Food Safety (forward by one of our
    Texas sludge fighters):
