Phish Announces Details Of New 3-Day Music Festival Thinking of hosting your very own workshop or seminar? No matter if you imagine hosting prospective new clients for the weekend, customers for a couple of hours, or associates over a breakfast style workshop, lets make sure that this year is the year you recognize that dream! Planning and holding a seminar, live training session or workshop is not nearly as difficult as you first might expect. In this article I am going to share with you the five tricks to a perfect workshop. She Wants Revenge--Justin Warfield (vocals, guitars, keyboards) and Adam Bravin (bass, guitar, keyboards, guitar, drum machine, percussion, programming, vocals) along with Thomas Foggart (guitars) and Scott Ellis (drums)-performed various times at this year"s festival wristbands in Austin, TX and also helped close out this year"s Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival on Sunday, April 17.

One of the principal risks with this strategy is a sudden and very sharp move against you (usually this occurs on the downside, so is more relevant for sellers of bull put spreads). If you are concerned about this happening, you could always enter a stop loss order just on your sold option. By doing this, if the market moves quickly, you will get out of your sold option, limiting your losses and hold only the long option which may end up making a profit if the market continues in that direction. These gains will help, and could potentially even outstrip the losses made on the sold option. If you"re worried about a "flash crash" event wristbands, this is one way to protect yourself. It"s a far cry from the 1977 "Summer of Hate," the punk rock phenomenon that audiophiles and rock critics point to as the ignition of the genre. But this trio of Cleveland punk rock happenings has churned sport wristbands up new interest in Cleveland"s short-lived but significant punk rock scene. The next band I spoke with was Company. Company is a self-described indie rock sounding band. The band members are now living in Charleston, South Carolina. Used to playing empty bar rooms, Company is excited to be playing at the SXSW festival this year. This is the extremely important festival for the Dayak (indigenious people) in Sarawak, which celebrating the finish of rice harvesting and welcomes the new planting season. All people in the longhouses in Sarawak will begin to celebrate the festival from the Eve of the Gawai day. On the Gawai day itself, that is 1 June, traditional rituals are held, dancing, lots of local foods especially Bamboo rice and bamboo chicken. In case you are traveling in Kuching during this special day, you can take part in the Annah Rais Homestay program and experience the fun of the Gawai festival together with the locals people. No walk-in travellers will be entertained during this day at most of the longhouses, apart from pre-arranged tour from the tour company, or the invited guest by the local people. Before making plans, decide whether you want to spend the weekend working, playing or relaxing. Do you plan to entertain, educate or gather together with family and friends? Maybe after Bush is gone we can actually get around to nailing Barney Frank and Chris Dodd to a wall. I mean, with no Republican to blame, the press will have to blame someone, right? Stick around friends - it"s just gettin" good!

"Father of hybrid rice" grows crops in barren saline-alkaline areas

A new technological breakthrough proposed by China"s "father of hybrid rice" Yuan Longping has increased rice yields by nearly 20 percent on land considered too saline and alkaline to be useful for crops.

The techniques are expected to be used domestically and abroad, officials said on Thursday.

The aim is to improve saline-alkaline land so that it can be used to grow more rice, said Zhang Guodong, executive director of Qingdao Saline-Alkali Tolerant Rice Research and Development Center in Shandong province.

The center has started building four demonstration centers, in the north and south of the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, in Daqing in Heilongjiang province and in Qingdao, each with over 66 hectares of experimental paddies. They would be used to determine the best ways to cultivate saline-alkali land, increase yields and reduce planting costs.

In September, the Qingdao demonstration center harvested four types saline-alkali resistant rice, with the highest yield reaching 9.3 metric tons per hectare, much higher than expected.

"One of the key steps to make it commercially viable is to cultivate highly resistant rice adapted to the environments of different saline-alkaline wastelands," Zhang said.

Zhang said the research center is likely to build five to 10 more demonstration bases over the next two to three years across China to develop the best way to promote the technology.

"The Qingdao R&D center also plans to use the new technology in countries of Southeast Asia and the Middle East," said Zhang, who added he could not provide details because negotiations are underway.

Yuan"s new breakthrough, called the Four-Dimensional Optimizing Method, is designed to tailor-make different solutions for different soils, according to the 87-year-old scientist.

"One of difficulties is to get rid of salinity in the soil," Yuan said at the second session of International Saline-Alkali Tolerant Rice Forum in Qingdao on Thursday.

The forum attracted more than 300 experts, scholars and entrepreneurs from home and abroad to discuss saline-alkali tolerant rice.

Yuan said the only two solutions for boosting productivity are increasing the yield and expanding the planting area.

"Now it seems the latter is a more effective way because there are hundreds of millions of hectares of saline-alkali land in the world," he said.

"China alone has about 100 million hectares of saline-alkali soil, and that area is still increasing year by year. Rice is the first choice of crop for improving the soil," Yuan said.

He said he hopes global crop security issues can be effectively dealt with through further development of salinealkali tolerant rice.

"Rice itself has the biological function of reducing salt and is the preferred food crop for improving saline-alkali soil," said Ai Jichang, a government relations officer with the World Food Programme China Office.

"At present, more than half of the world"s population lives on rice as a staple food. The comprehensive improvement technology for saline-alkali soil proposed by Yuan Longping"s team is of great strategic significance for promoting integrated research and the commercial extension of rice improvement in saline-alkali soil, ensuring national food security," Ai said.
