Lam: HK to become innovation, tewhere can i get bracelets madech hubSaving Money At A Music Festival It"s been an interesting year for punk rock music. Ann Arbor"s punk acolytes Iggy and the Stooges were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum last month, and punk rock impresario and Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren died on April 8, 2010, at age 64. But the headlines stretch further into the home of the aforementioned Rock Hall as well. Taking Woodstock: Rated R for graphic nudity, some sexual content, drug use and language. 120 mins. A comedy based on the real-life story of Elliot Tiber (Demetri Martin), whose family was involved in making the Woodstock Music and Arts Festival happen. The bank is about to foreclose on the family motel and Elliot moves back home to help his parents. When he learns the permit for the festival wristbands in a neighboring town has been cancelled, he contacts the producers and tries to drum up some business for the motel. Three weeks later half a million people are on their way to his neighbor"s farm and his life will be forever changed. There is a lot of preparation involved with organising a seminar or workshop. You are going to need to select the best suited venue (or technical support, if you are going to be conducting it via the web) to hold your event. You"ll need to find suitable accommodation for guest speakers if any, arrange discounted rates if possible, and perhaps organise activities when they are not speaking. If you are like most people buying event wristbands (or armbands or bracelets) for an event, you want to be sure they"ll help you let the right people into a venue and that they"ll keep the wrong people out. But what about when the leadership is all Lefties, as are 89% of the Press Corps? Well we"ll sport wristbands 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! Sound daunting? It"s really not. I have good news and great news for you. The good news is that in your day to day life there are many times when you "perform". By performing I"m talking about subtle, but significant behaviors - like changing the tone of your voice; using physical gestures; being verbally descriptive, etc. My experience is that people naturally do this when they are speaking about a topic they feel some emotional connection to. However, when people get up in front of an audience, they often suppress this natural performing ability, mainly because of fear. Four days of national country music entertainment, as well as local/regional talent. Travis Tritt and Carrie Underwood are just two high-powered entertainers featured this year.

General admission is free for children twelve and under; adult tickets range from $50 to $400 (depending on type and how many days). Click here for more ticket information and directions. Now that you know which Fest is happening in which place, it"s time for you to make your decision regarding where you are heading to with your music travels this year!
Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor said on Thursday that Hong Kong would place its future development focus on consolidating the city"s status as the financial and aviation hub, and turning the city into a world-class innovation and technology center, after the release of the Outline Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
She said the government would also intensify efforts in helping young people find career opportunities within the Greater Bay Area, as well as enhance the connectivity inside the area.
Lam made the remarks at the Symposium on the Outline Development Plan for the Bay Area held in Hong Kong. The symposium, held to discuss the plan released on Monday, was co-organized by the governments of Guangdong province, HKSAR and Macao SAR.
She said Hong Kong has expanded its role as a connector to an active player in the Greater Bay Area development. She added the city"s expanding role would ultimately benefit all its residents, especially the young generation.
Lam stressed that Hong Kong"s participation in the Greater Bay Area would not compromise the principle of "one country, two systems".
Lin Nianxiu, deputy director of the National Development and Reform Commission, who also attended the symposium, echoed Lam. He said the development of the Greater Bay Area should strictly adhere to "one country, two systems" principle and act in accordance with the law.
The development plan, unveiled on Monday, aims to turn the 11-city cluster in the area into a globally influential innovation and technology hub and an important support pillar for the Belt and Road Initiative.
Around 300 guests, including Ma Xingrui, governor of Guangdong, and Fernando Chui Sai-on, chief executive of Macao SAR, attended the symposium.
