PLA welcomes launches of private rohospital wristbands for salecketsSouth By Southwest (Sxsw) Music Festival Austin, Texas For you to become the amazing speaker you know you can be, you have to start performing, not presenting. You have to start connecting to the words, stories and topics you are speaking about before your audience will connect to them. This doesn"t mean you have to ride into your presentation on a unicycle juggling bowling balls (although, if you can... why not?). It does mean that you have to change your mindset from presenter to performer. 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.

And Cleveland punk legend Cheetah Chrome - guitarist for seminal Cle-punk acts Rocket from the Tombs and The Dead Boys - teamed up with Sylvain Sylvain of the New York Dolls for a new band called The Batusis, which played at SXSW as well. Of course, there are goals that have to do with physical measurements (weight, body fat percentage, size), and other goals that might have to do with your performance, like running a certain time or distance. Another type of goal might be to get yourself geared up for a future event or challenge, like a 10k run, or a full or 1/2 marathon, or a triathlon, or a "Tough Mudder" event wristbands, or a long distance cycling event, or a 3-day walk, and so on. You could even schedule a vacation where you"ll be active, like climbing, or surfing, or skiing, or white water rafting, or hiking. You get the point. Opting for a pity party on the couch with a month"s supply of potato chips because you missed working out this week? Or because you gained a few pounds? Really? Get up! Do something! Even if it"s 10 squats (or deep knee bends, if "squats" sounds like too much work), do something. March in place. Move your spine. Put a little Elvis in that pelvis. Smile. You"re getting better now. Carry on. The Muggs take the stage at 11:30 p.m. on Saturday at Cadieux Cafe with guests The Robin Moore Band on at 10:00 p.m. But if you know the Cafe, arrive early for Detroit"s best Belgian food and plenty of beverages on tap.
The People"s Liberation Army has opened one of its space launch facilities to private rocket companies in China, a major step in its efforts to implement President Xi Jinping"s civil-military integration strategy.
The Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center, China"s primary launch facility in the northwestern Gobi Desert, has hosted the launches of three privately built rockets since early September, when it first opened its doors to private enterprises. Officials at the center say it plans to support more private rocket missions.
Ji Duo, the center"s Party chief, told Xinhua News Agency recently that carrying out launches of privately made rockets is what a world-class space center is supposed to do, and Jiuquan is willing to put privately funded missions on its launch agenda.
Jia Lide, planning chief at the launch center, said favorable policies and targeted measures have been created for the benefit of private space enterprises. The center has also set up a dedicated support system for such activities.
Xi, who is also chairman of the Central Military Commission, has repeatedly urged China"s space industry to take the lead in the implementation of the civil-military integration strategy.
During his meetings in recent years at annual sessions of the National People"s Congress with deputies from the PLA, the president asked them to fully understand and promote the strategy.
Xi ordered military personnel to be open-minded and share their research and development resources with others. Closed-door research and monopolies must be torn down to optimize the use of resources and stimulate innovation and public interest in defense technology, he said.
Civil-military integration has been listed as a national strategy and a priority on the government"s agenda since Xi was elected the Party"s top leader in 2012. It usually refers to military and defense industries transferring technologies to the civilian sector, and including private companies on the military"s list of suppliers.
Three Beijing-based private space startups－OneSpace, i-Space and LandSpace－each launched a rocket from the Jiuquan center last year.
Both LandSpace and i-Space plan to launch at least one carrier rocket from the center this year.
China expects to launch at least 37 rockets this year, more than any other country. It led the world in launching rockets into orbit for the first time last year.
