2008 Sasquatch Music Festival Worth Attending I like to visit with my friends and I like to cook and when I put these two things together it is called a party. I have never thought of myself as an event planner but I do love to plan parties at my home and I have become quite efficient at it. Trust me I am no Martha Stewart and lets face it most of us are not. The important thing is do what you love. If you want a theme party do it, and if you want an intimate dinner then have at it. You are in the driver"s seat. The important piece is to plan. Never be afraid of too much planning but do not let the planning take away the fun. Stay flexible. Summary: With a grand total of 42 acts and counting, Mile High festival wristbands is going to be a tough act to follow. With two hometown bands in the line-up, 3OH!3 and The Fray, you will be hard pressed to find another festival swelling with pride. Dick"s Sporting Goods Park should accommodate festival goers quite easily, providing open space and lush grass. Think Glastonbury, U.K. Never the same work out twice. I like sport wristbands to switch things up every time I exercise. You may do some of the same basic exercise, just tweaked each time, or opt for a completely different work out every time. Need ideas? Google has got you covered here! JON AUER: To me, it"s become both less precious and yet more accomplished somehow. I"d point to the years of experience, together and apart, as the reason - we have so much more creative "water" to draw from "the well" so to speak. 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. AB: Well, I can"t speak for Justin, although I probably could. But my influences range from Prince to Depeche Mode. I"m a huge fan of Georgio Moroder, who did a lot of the electronic dance music in the late seventies and eighties. He did the soundtrack to Scarface, a lot of Donna Summer music . . . I really like that instrumental, dance music, but I also really like classical music: Bach, Beethoven, Bosner. The rhyme does go into strange details about the horse, that most of it is made of hay or straw. Unless this is a metaphor for tangled hair it unlikely that this was a real horse, I should imagine... Maybe the rhyme came from a toy horse. The hay is described as "pounce" which I haven"t heard used as an adjective, and draw a blank.

Two European astronauts took part in China"s first sea survival training exercise, which concluded on Monday afternoon, marking the first time foreign astronauts have participated in spaceflight-related training in China.

The 17-day training session was held in waters off Yantai, Shandong province, by the China Manned Space Agency in collaboration with the Ministry of Transport"s Beihai Rescue Bureau.

Sixteen Chinese astronaut — including Yang Liwei, the first Chinese citizen in space, and Jing Haipeng, the first Chinese astronaut to enter space three times — as well as Samantha Cristoforetti from Italy and Germany"s Matthias Maurer, both from the European Space Agency, were divided into six teams in the training session.

The exercise was designed to improve astronauts" sea survival, decision-making and emergency response capabilities and to boost their team spirit and collaboration capacity, according to a news release from the Chinese agency.

Each team had three members — one commander and two operators. At the beginning of the training, team members put on space suits and entered a mock re-entry capsule, which was taken out to sea on a ship and winched onto the water"s surface.

Once at sea, they swapped their space suits for special uniforms designed for sea survival that can resist cold and provide extra buoyancy before leaving the re-entry capsule and boarding inflatable boats. After receiving a signal, a helicopter or rescue ship approached the boats to pick them up.

On Monday, the last team — Liu Wang, a member of the Shenzhou IX mission in 2012, Chen Dong, who stayed in space for more than one month during the Shenzhou XI/Tiangong II mission, and Cristoforetti, who worked and lived on the International Space Station for almost 200 days — completed their training, marking the end of the session.

China"s new astronauts will go through the same training before they undertake spaceflight, the China Manned Space Agency said.

During the training, the astronauts learned methods and procedures of getting out of the re-entry capsule while at sea, familiarized themselves with sea survival skills and rescue preparation, and strengthened their ability to cooperate with each other and rescuers, the Chinese agency said.

Huang Weifen, deputy research chief of the Astronaut Center of China, said the European astronauts" participation in the training helped the Chinese team to explore methods and gain experience of international cooperation in manned space activities.

The China Manned Space Agency and European Space Agency signed an agreement in May 2015 to boost collaboration in manned space.
