V Festival 2012 Will Return With New Enthusiasm 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. You might want to consider buying and selling gold scrap for extra cash. If you like estate sales, bazaars, garage sales, and auctions you will be amazed how many people will have broken gold jewelry for sale for often dirt cheap. Many people don"t realize that there is value in the gold chain itself. Deciding on what event wristbands you want to host will help narrow down your choices. If you would like to host Murder Mystery Play, it will require a good size place and extra people to perform. If you wish to host a Mystery game, you can host in your own home or find a small venue that will not require many extra people to help you. The concept behind Swap Parties is that everyone brings something to the party, and everyone takes home something. What you bring depends upon the type or theme of the Swap Party. On Oprah"s show, the theme was musical instruments and sport wristbands equipment. A popular Swap Party theme is clothing. The festival also has arts and crafts, entertainment, and food vendors. Children will enjoy the carnival rides while the adults listen to the music. There will also be turtle races, a petting zoo, and much more! Admission is free. Of course the expectation of the type of performance varies based on where the audience has assembled and for what purpose. An audience at a country festival wristbands expects to see a country music performance. An audience at a comedy club expects to see a professional stand up comedian who will make them laugh.

Charities and donors will receive rewards or disciplinary action from up to 40 government departments based on their credit scores, according to a senior official from the Ministry of Civil Affairs.

Li Bo of the ministry"s bureau for social organization administration said departments including the central bank and the National Development and Reform Commission have signed a memorandum to share the credit data of both charitable organizations and those who donate to them, and to mete out rewards and punishments accordingly.

"The move signals that charities have been incorporated into the country"s credit system," Li said at a news conference on Saturday.

The move is part of a campaign initiated by the central government to establish a national-level credit system that encompasses all fields and sectors.

According to the memorandum, charities with ratings of at least 4A (the second-highest level) are eligible for rewards, which include favorable taxation rates and priority status during government contract bids.

Corporate donors with good records, or those that have made outstanding contributions to poverty relief efforts, are also eligible for the same rewards.

Organizations that have violated charitable organization rules, along with those culpable, will be placed on a blacklist to be shared among departments. The list will be updated on a regular basis, the memorandum said.

For those organizations that have rectified their misconduct or passed through punitive time frames, the organization and culpable people will be removed from the list.

Donors and recipients involved in legal disputes, and individuals and organizations that carry out charity scams, are also subject to possible disciplinary action, it said.

In addition to higher taxation and exclusion from government contract bidding activities, organizations on the blacklist will face stricter scrutiny in sectors including environmental protection.

Individuals found committing various infractions will also face restrictions in purchasing airline and high-speed rail tickets, it said.

To synchronize interdepartmental cooperation, civil affairs authorities will first update the credit information in a database shared among government departments. Then the 40 departments will give rewards or carry out disciplinary action depending on the data, according to Li Hui, an official at the NDRC, the country"s top economic planner.

The general public can access the information at creditchina.gov.cn, gsxt.gov.cn, cishan.chinanpo.gov.cn or mca.gov.cn, she said.

Li Bo said scams have a major effect on charity work. But in the past the ministry was only able to resort to administrative laws, whose disciplinary policies, he suggested, were not severe enough.

"With the memorandum in place, charity scams are liable for 24 punitive measures from up to 40 departments, which greatly increases the deterrent effect for scammers," he said.
