Get Yourself Down To Snowbombing 2009 - Europe"s Mountaintop Music Festival So you would like to host a murder mystery event but really don"t know where to start. Here are some basic tips and ideas to get you started and point you in the right direction.

If you enjoy music why not head for a bandshell or other outdoor festival wristbands. If you love to dance you could hit the local clubs, or find a band or artist around the town that you haven"t yet heard. Many restaurants also offer entertainment in their bar areas. Change the music that you listen to, get out and experience many different types of music; jazz, blues, long-hair, big band, singer-songerwriter, pop, rock....keep it interesting. Tailgating is simply getting up plenty of brochures, samples and any products you may have on hand. Get together plenty of kits or mini kits and take them with you. Create signs that say "FREE AVON" one someone comes up and asks what you mean by free AVON tell them you have free brochures and samples. Finish it off by letting them know you are giving full size products for anyone who joins AVON today. Let them know it"s only $10 and there are no quotas. Even if they aren"t interested give them the opportunity to earn their products at a discount just buy opening an AVON account for themselves! Many will find this as a way to save money and then in return become a rep and most likely start selling to others! Imagine being tasked with "X" number of duties. Imagine as you address each issue in turn, nearly every solution you forward is then ridiculed. That ridicule is then disseminated as the only voice heard. What do you think might be the result of such event wristbands? Would people dislike you or your actions? What if your action was the only reasonable one given the situation, yet still your solutions are defamed and ridiculed? Bandslam: Not Yet Rated for some thematic elements and mild language. 111 mins. Vanessa Hudgens steps out of the shadow of High School Musical but not too far. An upstart band, led by a talented singer-songwriter (Aly Michalka) develops a sound of its own and is poised for success. As disaster strikes, the band must decide whether to give up or fight for what they believe in. Stop Losses - You should set a maximum level of loss before you exit the position. I like to use a 200% rule which is fairly common for options sellers. For example if the premium I received when opening the trade was sport wristbands I would close the trade if the spread rose to In this way, I will be out of the trade long before I hit my maximum loss point. Shows cost anywhere for $5 to $12, depending on whether an out-of-town group is playing, how popular the bands are, etc. If it"s a pretty big show, you can save a couple bucks by purchasing tickets online in advance. Some of the shows are all ages but, unfortunately, quite a few require attendees to be at least 21 years old. You can check their online calendar for specifics.

BEIJING -- China"s Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP) Friday criticized Changchun city in northeast China"s Jilin Province for not doing enough to cope with air pollution.

In the first 10 months of this year, air quality in Changchun saw continuous degradation, with the amount of time with serious pollution increasing by 7 days compared to the same period last year, while days with good air quality decreased by 22, according to an MEP statement.

The inspectors found some of the city"s air quality indicators were "extremely high" for a long period of time.

Changchun was criticized for outdoor straw burning and not implementing emergency responses strictly, the statement said.

Several companies in the city were also criticized by the ministry for breaching emission rules.

Additionally, 25 development zones in the city lagged behind in upgrading coal-fired boilers and some companies in the zones lacked desulfurization facilities.

The city should submit plans to address the problems to the inspectors within 20 working days, the ministry said.

China is intensifying efforts to fight pollution and environmental degradation after decades of growth left the country saddled with problems such as smog and contaminated soil.

A total of 6,471 officials in eight provincial-level regions were held accountable for environmental damage after inspections by central authorities from August to September.

Tackling pollution has been listed as one of "the three tough battles" that China aims to win in the next three years, according to the Central Economic Work Conference, which concluded earlier this week.
