Making The Most Of Music Festivals Everyone is in excitement to get funky! The annual festival touring from different cities is finally in Orlando. Music lovers are just can"t wait to tune into the beat and celebrate this most requested event of the season. Funk Fest is a music festival celebrating funk, jazz, and R&B. Ideally, when I say "on the street," I mean somewhere that"s bustling with activity, like a festival wristbands or an arts crafts booth fair - these are great places to try these techniques to learn how to pick up women. Start a conversation with a girl about someone or something that"s around you both. Maybe someone"s wearing a really weird outfit. Or maybe there"s a cute dog that"s wearing a tutu. Share that with a girl and then you"re in a conversation with her. What if another 9/11 event wristbands occurs? Will it be said it happened on Obama"s watch? Will he be blamed for things out of his control? What if President Obama follows UN direction and uses force in Darfur, or Somalia? Only time will tell, my friends. Each night following play, players and their guests convene at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center for "The World"s Largest 19th Hole." Food and beverages, included in the entry fee, are served, but there is plenty more to attract their attention. Guest speakers from The Golf Channel a Golf Expo a demo area and sport wristbands a band each night are among the things that attract players to the big party each night. They will also pick up a score sheet to see exactly where they stand in their flight. It"s a far cry from the 1977 "Summer of Hate," the punk rock phenomenon that audiophiles and rock critics point to as the ignition of the genre. But this trio of Cleveland punk rock happenings has churned up new interest in Cleveland"s short-lived but significant punk rock scene. Hosted on Woolaroc Ranch"s historic grounds, the KidsFest features live entertainment, events, games, wagon rides, and crafts. Visitors are welcome to enjoy the parochial grounds and the beauty of the Osage Hills. The Woolaroc Museum has several historical art pieces and memorabilia. The Ranch also sports a Wildlife Preserve. Killer Mike will open all headlining concerts. Tickets for Big Boi"s spring 2013 "Shoes For Running" tour go on sale beginning March 8.

The People"s Liberation Army will work with its Vietnamese counterpart in strengthening exchanges, facilitating cooperation and enhancing coordination and mutual trust, a senior Chinese military official said on Monday.
State Councilor and Defense Minister General Wei Fenghe made the remark during an official visit to Vietnam. It was the first visit by a Chinese defense minister to the country in three years.
During his meeting with Vietnam"s National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan in Hanoi, Wei said both countries have upheld their traditional friendship with a solid foundation, and bilateral ties have seen steady development in recent years thanks to the joint efforts of leaders from both countries.
Both have produced fruitful results in exchanges and cooperation in various fields, he said, calling it a development worth cherishing.
Constructive relations will promote the positive development of the China-Vietnam comprehensive strategic partnership and contribute more to maintaining regional peace and stability, Wei added.
Ngan said Vietnam has consistently made its relationship with China one of its priorities in foreign affairs, and will not forget the massive support China gave for the Southeast Asian country"s causes of national liberation, construction and renovation.
She said the relationship is growing with positive momentum, and that Vietnam"s National Assembly will support the development of military-to-military relations.
Ngan said she hoped the two militaries will engage in close coordination, enhance collaboration under multilateral mechanisms, create a peaceful and stable environment for socioeconomic growth for both nations and become a key pillar for developing the comprehensive strategic partnership.
Next year will be the 70th anniversary of the establishment of formal diplomatic ties between China and Vietnam. Vietnam will also become the new chair of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.
Song Yinghui, an expert on Southeast Asia from the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations, said China-Vietnam relations have improved by "leaps and bounds" over the past 40 years, particularly in recent years.
"Although China and Vietnam have some issues, their overall relationship is at a high point, thanks to strong political support and socioeconomic cooperation," Song said. "Vietnam"s economy is also developing very fast. This can open more room for cooperation."
After becoming the new chair of ASEAN next year, she said, Vietnam will likely maintain its current peaceful and stable relationship with China, which is in the interests of both countries as well as the region.
"China-ASEAN relations have seen noticeable improvement recently, which has a lot to do with the chair nation," she said. Singapore was the ASEAN chair last year, followed by Thailand this year. Both are on good terms with China.
"ASEAN countries often try to maintain a balanced foreign relationship with big nations, and focus on regional security and economic growth," she said. "We scholars, and the world, will be very interested to see what role Vietnam will play as ASEAN chair."
