V Festival 2012 Will Return With New Enthusiasm
Go through your jewelry boxes, or your dresser, or your junk drawer, wherever you threw that broken gold chain, find it and get some cash. Gold is trading at historically high prices, as is silver and platinum, so now is the time to cash in on that old broken outdated jewelry you no longer wear.
JON AUER: I spent a couple of weeks in Minneapolis making a record with a band called The Melismatics who I think are fantastic. Beyond the music, they also inspired me with their work ethic with was superlative. I also just played with a band while I was recently in Singapore called Typewriter who I had a great time with. We played together, some of my songs, some of theirs, kind of a musical cultural exchange at a big festival wristbands there.
After the Vulnerability Assessment Team"s tests, we decided to stay with an all-adhesive product line-up at TabBand, believing that it was the safest for all applications, from event bands to hospital patient IDs.
SET THE DATE: The date of your event will depend on a couple of things. If it is a birthday or anniversary event wristbands then you are controlled by the date. If it is just a party the date may be controlled by the locations availability. If the event is at your home then you are in control. Pick what ever date you want. I have even gone as far as check with some guests a couple weeks in advance to make sure they are available on a certain date. I really like success!
Travel... lots. All over Texas, the U.S. Israel, Kuwait, Amsterdam. There was a time when my husband and I were really into cruises. In 2009 or 2010 while living in Kuwait I entered the Harper"s Bazaar Magazine for the Middle East female artist contest. I probably created 15 watercolors, framed and ready for sale in two weeks. Though they didn"t select me it was fun doing painting again and getting the hair/make-up professionally done for the photographer. This was actually when I started really painting again. I"ve had a painter"s block sport wristbands for about years. My art used to be very dark and depressed, as was my life at times. Reflections of my happiness and spirituality are obvious in my art now.
But what about when the leadership is all Lefties, as are 89% of the Press Corps? Well, we"ll just have to wait and see, won"t we? Wasn"t Ann Coulter briefly banned from NBC last week? Why? Because, according to a statement released by an NBC executive minion, "We can"t have her on our network running down President Obama." (I paraphrased) Can one imagine NBC saying the same of any major Democrat pundit when it comes to criticizing a Republican president? Yeah, when monkeys fly outta my ass!
One other thing: the early bird gets the worm. The WMS has a history of selling out, and prices go up considerably on festival day, anyhow-so be sure to get your wristbands early. Currently, festival wristbands are available for only $20, with VIP passes available for $75. The wristbands are good for any venue, all day. Even without knowing the specific lineup of locals, $20 to see all of them means you"ll definitely get your money"s worth.
BEIJING - Chinese scientists have found a key gene in crops that make them more efficient in utilizing nitrogen fertilizer, which will help reduce the use of fertilizer.
The application of nitrogen fertilizer is an important measure to increase the yields of crops such as rice and wheat. However, a large amount of nitrogen fertilizer also brings about ecological problems such as soil acidification and agricultural greenhouse gas emissions.
Scientists from the Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology under the Chinese Academy of Sciences analyzed the mechanisms underlying the nitrogen-use efficiency of crops and confirmed that the gene GRF4 is a positive regulator of plant nitrogen metabolism.
After increasing the expression of GRF4, crops maintained a high-yield trait while nitrogen use efficiency increased significantly.
The research enables novel breeding strategies for sustainable agriculture, according to the research team.
