Surviving Your First Music Festival Gig
Taking the stage by storm will be Seattle"s own, THEESatisfaction who are not only in town to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of thier collective, but are also here on their first-ever tour: The Black Weirdo Tour. JON AUER: All you can really hope to do in life it to keep evolving, growing. I"m not religious at all - let me be clear about that - but I kind of like the serenity prayer....y"know, the bits about changing what you can, letting go of what you can"t, and the wisdom to know the difference. Seems like a good philosophy even in a digital age. The Black Weirdo Tour began in Austin, Texas where the group performed for the city"s annual, South By South West festival wristbands. Next on the list was a trip to California where the duo performed two shows. Now they"re here in Toronto for a 3 day performance set. Former Dead Boys guitarist Cheetah event wristbands Chrome aka Gene O"Connor recalls the Cleveland punk scene a bit differently but chalks it up to a brief relocation to New York. For a chance to participate in some good-old-fashioned fun, join the revelry at the Frontier Days Festival. Visitors can enjoy seeing the period clothing and eating period food. The festival also features a carnival, children"s games, and some very unique contests. No Frontier Day festival would be complete without a greased pig catch and nail-driving contest. There will also be several quilts for view as well as a parade sport wristbands on Saturday. Sound daunting? It"s really not. I have good news and great news for you. The good news is that in your day to day life there are many times when you "perform". By performing I"m talking about subtle, but significant behaviors - like changing the tone of your voice; using physical gestures; being verbally descriptive, etc. My experience is that people naturally do this when they are speaking about a topic they feel some emotional connection to. However, when people get up in front of an audience, they often suppress this natural performing ability, mainly because of fear. One other thing: the early bird gets the worm. The WMS has a history of selling out, and prices go up considerably on festival day, anyhow-so be sure to get your wristbands early. Currently, festival wristbands are available for only $20, with VIP passes available for $75. The wristbands are good for any venue, all day. Even without knowing the specific lineup of locals, $20 to see all of them means you"ll definitely get your money"s worth.

There is an extremely low risk for the spread of plague in Beijing after two cases were confirmed, the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention announced Wednesday.

It said the two patients from XilinGol League, the Inner Mongolia autonomous region, have been quarantined and their activities since coming to Beijing have been investigated, while those suspected of exposure to the patients have been screened.

The center said it is safe for people to go to medical institutions as usual.

It also said Beijing is not a source of the plague epidemic, and there is no plague bacillus in its natural environment, so residents would not be infected through contact with animals including mice.

The center said residents don"t need to take special protective measures, and suggested people wash their hands regularly and avoid going to crowded places.

Things you need to know about plauge:

Caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis, plague is considered as one of the most dangerous infectious diseases by China"s health authorities. Symptoms include fever, severe toxemia, swelling of lymph nodes, pneumonia and bleeding tendency.

Plague has historically occurred in large outbreaks, with the best known being the Black Death in the 14th century, which resulted in greater than 50 million dead.

Statistics from WHO shows plague occurs in three main clinical forms - bubonic plague, septicaemic plague and pneumonic plague. Without prompt and effective treatment, all types of plague are fatal. In particular, the case fatality rates of septicaemic plague and pneumonic plague are nearly 100 percent.

Plague affects a wide range of wild animals and is especially prevalent among rodents. It is transmitted through air and by fleas from animals to other animals and to humans. Direct person-to-person transmission occurs only in cases of pneumonic plague, when respiratory droplets may transfer the infection from the patient to others in close contact.

Antibiotic therapy is an efficient treatment for plague. Patients that receive early treatment are likely to be cured.

In times of plague outbreak, people in all regions are suggested to avoid close contact (within a 2-meter distance) with those who cough, and spend less time in crowded places. Residents in regions with prevalent plague must use insect repellent and stay away from dead animals and rodent habitats. Those who travel to infected regions must not hunt and eat local animals on their own account, and should note that taking livestock products out of infected regions is strictly prohibited. Household pets should also be kept away from infected animals.

People who display symptoms such as fever of unknown causes, swollen lymph nodes, chest pain and coughing should seek medical attention as soon as possible.
