V Festival 2012 Will Return With New Enthusiasm It"s been an interesting year for punk rock music. Ann Arbor"s punk acolytes Iggy and the Stooges were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum last month, and punk rock impresario and Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren died on April 8, 2010, at age 64. But the headlines stretch further into the home of the aforementioned Rock Hall as well. You might want to consider buying and selling gold scrap for extra cash. If you like estate sales, bazaars, garage sales, and auctions you will be amazed how many people will have broken gold jewelry for sale for often dirt cheap. Many people don"t realize that there is value in the gold chain itself. Deciding on what event wristbands you want to host will help narrow down your choices. If you would like to host Murder Mystery Play, it will require a good size place and extra people to perform. If you wish to host a Mystery game, you can host in your own home or find a small venue that will not require many extra people to help you. The concept behind Swap Parties is that everyone brings something to the party, and everyone takes home something. What you bring depends upon the type or theme of the Swap Party. On Oprah"s show, the theme was musical instruments and sport wristbands equipment. A popular Swap Party theme is clothing. The festival also has arts and crafts, entertainment, and food vendors. Children will enjoy the carnival rides while the adults listen to the music. There will also be turtle races, a petting zoo, and much more! Admission is free. Of course the expectation of the type of performance varies based on where the audience has assembled and for what purpose. An audience at a country festival wristbands expects to see a country music performance. An audience at a comedy club expects to see a professional stand up comedian who will make them laugh.

WUHAN - The concrete pour has been completed during the construction of the pier base of a cable-stayed road-rail bridge in east China, marking the largest continuous concrete pour in China"s bridge construction history.

A total of 42,900 cubic meters of concrete was poured to build a pier base of the size of 12 basketball courts, with 7,420 tonnes of steel bars used for the bridge connecting Shanghai and Nantong, Jiangsu Province, said Liu Ziming, chairperson of the China Railway Major Bridge Engineering Group Corporation.

The pour project for the nine-meter-high pier base was divided into two stages, with 3.3 meters poured in the first stage and another 5.7 meters poured in the second stage.

About 27,800 cubic meters of concrete was poured at the second stage, setting a record for continuous concrete pour in volume in China"s bridge construction history.

More than 400 workers took part around the clock for 100 hours to pour the base at the record-setting stage.

The Shanghai-Nantong combined bridge is 11 kilometers long and consists of four railway lines and six expressway lanes. The main span of the bridge is 1,092 meters, the world"s largest span for a cable-stayed railway-expressway bridge.

Construction of the bridge began in 2014, and it is expected to take more than five years to complete.
