Meet a Hero from Basra, a Trustee of UC Berkeley Foundation, and Quasi-Secret Director of CaliforniaALL — Meet Gibor Basri

Gibor Basri

Gibor Basri (image:courtesy photo)

Gibor Basri is an American astrophysicist, born in New York on May 3, 1951.

The son of Phyllis Basri, a professor of dance and ballet, and Saul Basri, professor of physics at the University of Colorado, Basri grew up in Fort Collins, Colorado, together with his younger brother David. The family lived for brief periods in Burma (1957) and Sri Lanka (1965).

Basri graduated in physics at Stanford University in 1973, and received his Ph.D. in astrophysics at the University of Colorado in 1979. His thesis, under the supervision of Jeffrey Linsky, was on stellar activity, based on observations by the International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE) satellite, of which he was one of the first users. A postdoctoral award took him to the U.C. Berkeley astronomy department where he has been a professor since 1994. His work there originally focused on high-energy observations of stars (with Stuart Bowyer). In the last decade he turned to studies of star formation (with Len Kuhi). Basri’s most noteworthy work includes a 1980 study of T Tauri-type stars, and he is recognized as a world expert on brown dwarf stars.

In 2011, as vice chancellor for equity and inclusion for the U.C. Berkeley campus, he served as a communicator between the university administration and students supporting the Occupy movement.  Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gibor_Basri

Gibor Basri begins by talking about his mother’s [Phyllis Claire Basri] lineage from East African slaves brought to Jamaica. He details his father’s [Saul Basri] lineage as an Iraqi Jew. Basri talks about his father’s education at MIT [Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts] and his mother’s dancing education at Columbia University [New York]. He also describes his childhood in Fort Collins Colorado, the country of Burma and other travels as well.

Gibor Basri discusses his parents’ [Saul Basri and Phyllis Claire Whyte] views on racial identity, as well as his own thoughts about his Jewish identity. He remembers his elementary school experience, his early interest in astronomy and science fiction books, and his high school experience in Tehran, Iran and Ceylon [later called Sri Lanka]. Basri describes his father’s work in physics including a Fullbright Lectureship, which took the family abroad.

Gibor Basri begins by explaining the inadequate school system in Ceylon, and meeting science fiction writer, Arthur C. Clarke while living there. He then talks about returning to the U.S. to finish high school and to begin college. Basri explains how the civil rights movement and the age of space exploration influenced him in college. He recalls his experience playing in the Stanford University marching band. Source: http://www.idvl.org/sciencemakers/Bio26.html

On August 4, 2009 Ruthe Catolico Ashley, executive director of sham non profit entity known as CaliforniaALL twitted:

“Welcome our new Board Members: Ophelia Basgal, Gibor Basri, Jenny C. Flores, Frank Quevedo, Adonica Wada, and Cary Zellerbach.”

On September 1, 2009 Sarah Attia of CaliforniaALL issued a press release announcing that the “Inaugural Champions of Diversity Awards to be held in Sacramento”

While the letterhead identified Ophelia Basgal, Jenny Flores, Frank Quevedo, Adonica Wada, and Cary Zellerbach as directors of CaliforniaALL, there is no mention of Gibor Basri.

Similarly, a press-release issued in September of 2009 announcing the departure of Ruthe Catolico Ashley, there is no mention of Gibor Basri.

Likewise, a 2010 newsletter published by CaliforniaALL also unfairly neglects to identify Gibor Basri as director of CaliforniaALL.

Meet ” EFF” – The Electronic Frontier Foundation: Launched by Mitch Kapor – Spouse of CaliforniaALL’s Freada Kapor Klein, Financed In Part By Judy Johnson’s “CCPF”, Keker & Van Nest (TLR Note – Sources: EFF’s Attempt to Solicit YR as Client, Misguided)

Freada Kapor Klein, Mitch Kapor

Mitch and Freada Kapor.  In 2007-2008, the Board of Governors of the State Bar of California conveniently appointed Mrs. Kapor as director of CaliforniaALL. Although other potential explanations certainly exist, as matters presently stand, it appears that operatives participated in what appears to be a sophisticated financial scheme to misuse the California Bar Foundation and non-profit entity CaliforniaALL as a vehicle to embezzle and launder funds originated from major utility companies and the California Bar Foundation to push for the election of Barack Obama (image courtesy of Kapor)

10 July 1990 — Mitch Kapor, the founder of Lotus Development Corp., announced at a news conference this morning that his newly formed Electronic Frontier Foundation is giving $275,000 to Computer Profes- sionals for Social Responsibility to expand their program on computers and civil liberties.

To that end, the Electronic Frontier Foundation will:

  1. Engage in and support educational activities which increase popular understanding of the opportunities and challenges posed by developments in computing and telecommunications.
  2. Develop among policy-makers a better understanding of the issues underlying free and open telecommunications, and support the creation of legal and structural approaches which will ease the assimilation of these new technologies by society.
  3. Raise public awareness about civil liberties issues arising from the rapid advancement in the area of new computer-based communications media. Support litigation in the public interest to preserve, protect, and extend First Amendment rights within the realm of computing and telecommunications technology.
  4. Encourage and support the development of new tools which will endow non-technical users with full and easy access to computer-based telecommunications.

Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_Frontier_Foundation

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is an international non-profit digital rights advocacy and legal organization based in the United States. Its stated mission is to:[1]

  • Engage in and support educational activities which increase popular understanding of the opportunities and challenges posed by developments in computing and telecommunications.
  • Develop among policy-makers a better understanding of the issues underlying free and open telecommunications, and support the creation of legal and structural approaches which will ease the assimilation of these new technologies by society.
  • Raise public awareness about civil liberties issues arising from the rapid advancement in the area of new computer-based communications media.
  • Support litigation in the public interest to preserve, protect, and extend First Amendment rights within the realm of computing and telecommunications technology.
  • Encourage and support the development of new tools which will endow non-technical users with full and easy access to computer-based telecommunications.

The EFF is supported by donations and is based in San Francisco, California, with staff members in Washington, D.C. They are accredited observers at the World Intellectual Property Organization[2] and one of the participants of the Global Network Initiative.[3]

EFF has taken action in several ways. It provides funds for legal defense in court, presents amici curiae briefs, defends individuals and new technologies from what it considers baseless or misdirected legal threats, works to expose government malfeasance, provides guidance to the government and courts, organizes political action and mass mailings, supports some new technologies which it believes preserve personal freedoms, maintains a database and web sites of related news and information, monitors and challenges potential legislation that it believes would infringe on personal liberties and fair use, and solicits a list of what it considers patent abuses with intentions to defeat those that it considers without merit.

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
