But the honeymoon"s about to end friends. Now is when we will see what the press is most concerned about. Are they more Lefties than sport wristbands they are the Fourth Estate? Or will the dearth of Republicans to blame see a change in the Press Corps rhetoric toward Democrats?
Fishing is another popular pastime in Lorne. Beach fishing can be good but most anglers seem to prefer the Lorne pier where you can catch just about anything. Whiting and Flathead are a common catch and in winter you can get on to a school of Snapper. Squid can also be caught by jigging at the end of the pier. If you don"t have any luck there is no need to worry because the local fishing co-op is right near the pier and they do very good fish and chips.
Many masks are based on the event wristbands that you are going to. You may want to make a mask that is much more flamboyant for Mardi Gras or are you may want an elegant mask for that formal event. You need to figure out some of the colors and basic themes that you want to use. Some of the things that you may need to create your masterpiece is some kind of craft glue, feathers, sequins, glitter, gemstones, and anything else that you might need. You may want to purchase sticks or dow rods to complete your mask. Do not forget you will need some kind of elastic or ribbon to be able to wear the mask.
The festival will start at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday and will last for most of the day. There will be a long lineup of live bands, as well as a live radio broadcast from the top comedy talk radio shows on iTunes, Red Bar Radio and Wreckless Media Radio. Those who attend will have a chance to get on the air.
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.
"For me it"s a mix of everything from having seen Eve 6 when I was 14 and then Sam Roberts when I was 24. If it wasn"t for Eve 6, I never would"ve touched a guitar and if it wasn"t for Sam Roberts, I wouldn"t try so hard at our live shows. Then you have songwriters that blow your mind with their way of weaving worlds with words - like Stephen Trask and Billy Pettinger", he concluded.
These events are fun and exciting. I personally will be going to Delta Fair and Music Festival so that I can take my daughter to enjoy all of the rides and see all of the vendors, I am a sucker for good crafts and end up spending a bundle. On that note, I hope this will guide you in some ideas for the weekend. Labor Day signifies the end of summer and there is no need to let it go to waste.
A rising number of migratory birds have been seen arriving for winter at East Dongting Lake in Yueyang, Hunan province, and environmental improvements at the lake are being credited for the increase, officials said.
This winter, about 170,000 migratory birds are expected to arrive at East Dongting Lake, a major part of Dongting Lake, compared with 100,000 to 120,000 seen during winters in the years leading up to 2014, said Zhang Hong, deputy head of administration for East Dongting Lake National Nature Reserve.
There also has been an increase in the types of birds arriving at the 190,000 hectare reserve. Around 2002, some 200 varieties of birds wintered at the lake. The number increased to 345 last winter and had reached 348 as of Dec 10, he said.
"Birds choose places with a pleasant environment for winter. The continued increases suggest improvement of the local environment," said Zhang.
Dongting Lake is the second-largest freshwater lake in China and one of the major water bodies along the Yangtze River, China"s longest.
The central government published a national plan for development of the Yangtze River Economic Belt in September 2016 to boost concerted development in riverside regions and provide new growth drivers for the country"s economy. Environmental protection and restoration were listed as paramount tasks in the plan.
According to Zhang"s administration, local police in Hunan have uncovered 31 cases related to illegal bird hunting and 16 people have received criminal punishment in the past five years. While 28 guns for hunting have been confiscated, more than 1,000 pieces of netting used in bird hunting have been found and removed in the Dongting Lake area.
With financial support of about 100 million yuan ($15.4 million) in recent years from the central government, the reserve has built five protection stations, one publicity and education center and one breeding and veterinary treatment center.
While sand excavation has been banned in the reserve, almost 8 kilometers of shoreline and 69 hectares of bottomland have been restored after local authorities removed 44 sand storage yards, according to the administration.
In addition to government efforts, more residents have also participated in wetland protection. "Last year, residents sent more than 200 injured birds to our reserve," Zhang said.
Zhang Pingyang, a doctoral candidate at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, is in East Dongting for the third year doing research on protection of wetlands and birds.
"Three years is a short period of time when talking about ecological improvement. But I have seen continually enhanced protection efforts and officers have been monitoring the wetland around the clock," she said.
