Are Music Festivals For Me? One part grimy dive bar and one part hip live music venue, Off Broadway walks a thin line. The St. Louis venue isn"t so ghetto and grungy that it scares off well known out-of-town groups, and it"s not so pristine and sterile that it seems awkward to watch a local garage band play there on a Wednesday. For those who live in or near St. Louis and have developed a taste for punk, indie rock and Stag, Off Broadway may be the best music venue around.

It is not difficult to do. It is also a lot of fun as well as less expensive than buying an elaborate mask. You get to decide how you want your mask to look and what materials want to use. One of the first things that you need to do is to purchase a plain mask in order to decorate. You can probably purchase a plain mask at any hobby or party store. This is probably one of the easier ways to do it. You can always make your own mask by following the principles of paper mache making. You can make a form and begin to create the mask of your dreams. By making your own masquerade masks, you can determine the size and shape rather than relying on a preformed mask. It may take a little bit more work, but you will end up with a mask that may fit better and be easier to decorate.

A remote sensing survey has exposed serious ecological challenges in China’s two economic hubs – the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region in the north and Yangtze River Economic Belt along the great river.

Wang Qiao, director of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment"s satellite applications center, said the two regions have grown so rapidly they now have huge population densities. They face arduous difficulties in coordinated environmental protection and economic development amid continued intense urbanization.

Per capita water resources in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region is only one-ninth of the national average, said the official.

In the region, the water resource development rate has exceeded 100 percent since 2010, far beyond the internationally accepted safety range, except in 2012 when there was abundant water. About 70 percent of rivers in the region experience interruptions, while wetlands such as Baiyangdian and Qilihai have shrunk and long relied on supplied water.

The riverside in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River Economic Belt is overdeveloped and faces large ecological risks. According to the survey, the shoreline and beaches along the Yangtze River are only 44.0 percent and 19.4 percent of their natural state respectively.

Wharfs occupy 430 kilometers of the riverbank, accounting for 5.4 percent of the total length. Shipyards and ship repair facilities also sprawl across 131 kilometers along the longest river in China. Chemical companies take up another 148 kilometers, posing a risk to the Yangtze River ecological environment.
