Making The Most Of Music Festivals Hiring a marquee sounds like an expensive proposition in general, but those of us who have never done it before will not have any idea how much it costs. The fact is prices range widely, depending on a number of variable factors, so it is impossible to generalise. Besides becoming golf"s largest amateur golf tournament, the Golf.Com World Amateur Handicap Championship is one of the world"s greatest annual reunions. Golfers from every U.S. state and two dozen countries gather every year during the last week in August to not only compete in a professional tour-event wristbands, but also to renew friendships from years past, and make new ones for years to come. AB: I don"t think we belong to any genre. People just have sport wristbands to label everything-you know we"ve gotten goth"-what is goth"? I"m not really sure "goth" is even a musical genre. I think it might just be a certain style. Anyway, I think our sound has changed a lot over time, but if I had to describe it, I like to call it "dark and dancy"-derived from a lot of late seventies dance stuff. Wolff calls Ubu "blindingly original, completely outside the mainstream, and you could tell they were mad, because a lot of their music was angry." He shares similar kudos for The Dead Boys, Pagans and Electric Eels, which "stand the test of time more than contemporaries like Styx, REO Speedwagon or Kansas," he laughs. Support Mont Lyons, hailing from Austin, TX, has been playing heavily locally ever since festival wristbands, but I"m not complaining. The groovy, emotional and upbeat sound of this band makes me dance every time. Lead singer Bryan Oliver plays keyboard and sings at his mightiest, while band mates Trevor Smith and Brandon Crews on guitar and bass groove to their music, keeping the crowd hanging on for that next song. Banquet Halls - sure, their main business are weddings and reunions but they offer ample space plus most have their own kitchens or catering services so Hosting a "Dinner Theater" would be perfect. Job Fairs are a great way to find new recruits since most of the people there are looking for an opportunity to earn money. Set up a table and put together brochures, flyer"s and samples in What"s New bags. Have hundreds ready for the big day! Also, great surveys or a drawing in order to get their info and follow up. This will also be a great way to get prospects for those who didn"t seem interested at the moment. You may also want to have plenty of kits or mini kits in case they chose to sign up immediately!

China"s unmanned submersible "Hailong 11000" dived 2,605 meters below the sea surface in the western Pacific Ocean on Sunday, succeeding in passing the 2,000 meters grade deep water test.

The submersible entered the water from its mothership Dayang Yihao (Ocean No 1), a Chinese scientific research ship, at 10:30 am Beijing time (0230 GMT) and reached the depth of 2,000 meters some 105 minutes later.

Operators conducted a system check and function test before allowing the vessel to dive deeper. It went down another 605 meters and successfully returned to the sea surface.

The unmanned, remotely-controlled submersible is designed to work at a maximum depth of 11,000 meters below the sea level. It will complete an 11,000-meter-deep sea test in three years, according to the China Ocean Mineral Resources R&D Association.

Supervisor of the operation team Cui Yunlu said that the vessel showed stable performance during Sunday"s sea test, adding that the Chinese research team will choose an appropriate time to challenge the depth of 6,000 meters.

Dayang Yihao departed China"s eastern port city of Qingdao on March 20, taking scientists on a 45-day scientific expedition.

Hailong literally means the Sea Dragon in Chinese.
