Planning A Dog-Friendly Vacation One part grimy dive bar and one part hip live music venue, Off Broadway walks a thin line. The St. Louis venue isn"t so ghetto and grungy that it scares off well known out-of-town groups, and it"s not so pristine and sterile that it seems awkward to watch a local garage band play there on a Wednesday. For those who live in or near St. Louis and have developed a taste for punk, indie rock and Stag, Off Broadway may be the best music venue around. Post Grad: Rated PG-13 for sexual situations and brief strong language. Alexis Bledel of Gilmore Girls fame stars as Ryden Malby, a woman with a plan. The plan was to do well in high school to get a scholarship to a great school, graduate and get a loft apartment in New York while working at the best publishing house. As you might predict, her post grad plan flops. She is forced to move back home and begins collecting a stack of rejected job applications. Fortunately her best friend Adam (Zack Gilford) eases her pain as does the hot next-door, neighbor David. Looks like Ryden needs a new plan. Looks cute but could go either way. The Cadieux Cafe played a role in the band"s early years as a part of the venue"s Mussel Beach festival wristbands in 2001. They have come a long way since and suffered some hardship and line-up changes along the way. In late 2001, bass player DeNardo experienced a serious stroke which left his right arm paralyzed. After a great deal of local outreach to fund his physical rehabilitation and an ingenious solution to keep him up front with the band, he now performs his bass-lines on a keyboard system. He"s back in fine form. You event wristbands know what this means right? In addition to the obvious outward physical improvements that movement provides, it also directly contributes to improvements in mood, learning, memory, focus, hormonal communication, immune function, and every other physical, mental and emotional function you can think of. Cinderella"s Castle is beautifully and festively lit up with holiday lights and it will appear like it"s snowing on Main Street throughout the Party as well. There are dance parties in Tomorrowland and Fantasyland too and the Christmas ornament shop in Liberty Square even seems a sport wristbands bit more festive during the party. Whether at the New England Country Music Festival, or at any of the other national festivals, people nationwide have shown an enduring love for the music. Year after year, voters at the Country Music Awards look back on the Festivals to highlight the best performances. Award winners are forged at their live performances at these festivals. Every year at these Award ceremonies fans of Country are reminded of why they love the live show. Don"t miss out on that feeling and be sure to attend at least one country music festival this year. Once your event is concluded, do not forget to ask all attendees for some form of feedback good or bad. You should make inquiries as to what they enjoyed about the event, what they did not and what could be done to improve the overall experience at the event. This will enable you to better prepare for your next seminar or workshop.

Editor"s note: In the run-up to the 19th Communist Party of China National Congress, China Daily will cover a series of key projects and advanced equipment of national importance, showcasing the country"s huge improvement and relentless efforts at innovation.

The thirsty eastern and northern regions of China received 10 billion cubic meters of diverted Yangtze River water as of June 9 - enough to fill Hangzhou"s West Lake, in Zhejiang province, 700 times.

The South-to-North Water Diversion Project, one of the world"s biggest, has also played an outsized role in other ways, like improving the environment and promoting pollution control, according to the project"s construction committee.

"The project has brought tremendous benefits to society, the economy and the environment," the committee said in a statement.

The first phase of the central route, which has been channeling water 1,276 kilometers from Danjiangkou Reservoir to Beijing since 2014, has brought more than 2.28 billion cu m in total, helping to support social and economic growth, said Pan Anjun, a spokesman for the Beijing Water Bureau.

"Beijing"s water resources have risen from an average 100 cu m per capita to 150 cu m last year," he said.

The diverted water now accounts for 73 percent of the capital"s daily water supply and is pumped to 11 million people, according to the committee, which is under the State Council.

Construction on the grand project of delivering water from the Yangtze basin started on the eastern and central routes in 2002. The first phase of the eastern route was completed in 2013, followed by the first phase of the central route in 2014.

The two long diversion channels have delivered 10 billion cu m of water as of June 6, and served over 93 million people in 33 cities in the arid regions of Beijing, Tianjin and the provinces of Hebei, Henan, Shandong and Jiangsu, the committee said.

In addition to easing their water shortages, these areas have also seen environmental improvements, especially in underground water.

Many cities have relied on underground aquifers as their main source before the arrival of the Yangtze water. In Beijing, the water table rose 36 centimeters in April compared with the same month last year, because of recharging from the diverted water. In some regions, the water table rose by as much as 8 meters, the committee said.

In addition, to protect the quality of water during diversion, the regions through which the channels run have strengthened monitoring and water pollution controls.

The Shandong and Jiangsu provincial governments cooperated in building 426 water pollution control projects between 2001 and 2010 for the eastern route, managing to cut pollution discharges by 85 percent.

More measures have been undertaken, as well, including improvements in the water quality monitoring network and the monthly releases listing water quality in major sections under a State Council plan.

By 2020, all 22,800 villages and 211 counties along the two routes will implement comprehensive pollution controls, according to authorities.

The South-to-North project, initially envisioned in 1952, consists of three planned routes - eastern, central and western - and able to deliver 44.8 billion cu m upon completion, the statement from the committee said.
