Cyclist completes his cleanup marathon on Tibband called magicetan highwayHow To Survive An All Day Outdoor Music Festival Looking for a unique musical experience this summer? Be sure to check out the Rock Dog Music Festival on Saturday, July 11th, 2009. The Rock Dog Music Festival will take place at 9000 Cardwell in Livonia, Michigan (zip code 48150). JON AUER: To me, it"s become both less precious and yet more accomplished somehow. I"d point to the years of experience together and apart as the reason we have so event wristbands much more creative water to draw from the well so to speak. Intensity Not all sport wristbands exercise needs to be intense but some of it definitely should. Make sure that at least some of what you"re doing for movement challenges you physically - it"s how you will improve your physiology. This could mean adding sprinting, or burst training, or even just revving things up enough to break a sweat. What you do before and after the date destination can make or break the date, so mentally walk through the date ahead of time to be sure you have covered how you will get there - who will drive home or will you cab it? Being spontaneous is really fun too - so if you know your partner well enough you could even pack a surprise bag for them and stay overnight somewhere after the date. Off Broadway is one of the few St. Louis music venues that attracts indie rock and punk bands that are up and coming, but that aren"t completely obscure. A perfect example is the brand new psychedelic folk group Here We Go Magic, which played a beautiful set at Off Broadway a couple weeks ago. The band had stopped in St. Louis on it"s way to the festival wristbands, where they played a ton of shows that got pretty impressive reviews. And the gun slingin", whiskey guzzlin" indie rockers Murder By Death are scheduled to play at Off Broadway in May - it"s bound to be a more appropriate atmosphere than if the group performed at the Pageant to the tune of $5 Budweisers. 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. True to it"s name, the bar is a few hundred feet west of South Broadway Street. Crime can be thick in this part of St. Louis, so be observant and don"t flash wads of cash to random dudes hangin" out in alleys. My first introduction to the venue was when a friend informed me she had been robbed walking from her car into the bar. Her sob story had a positive twist though, because the bartenders at Off Broadway fed her free drinks all night!
Lin Peng spent three months riding his secondhand tricycle and picking up trash on the way
A young traveler who collected garbage alongside the Sichuan-Tibet Highway for nearly three months has attracted a lot of social media attention recently.
Lin Peng, 28, spent 90 days on the road after quitting his job with a telecommunications company in Guangzhou, Guangdong province.
After starting his journey in Ya"an, Sichuan province, on April 20, he cycled and trekked more than 20 kilometers every day, collecting rubbish on the way.
Lin arrived in Lhasa, the capital of the Tibet autonomous region, on July 21 and returned home recently.
Most of the time during his journey he was on his own, with just his tongs, a pair of gloves and a secondhand tricycle with a flat cart.
Sometimes he made friends with hikers inspired by his cleanup campaign, and they helped him collect waste for a few days before going their separate ways.
His face has become weather-beaten and tanned from his time on the road.
Lin said it was his second visit to Tibet, after a cycling trip last year, but this time he chose to make his journey a small contribution to nature.
"I"m always sad to see that so many beautiful spots are polluted, and I decided to make another trip for environmental protection," he said.
"The last time I was in Tibet, I saw a lot of waste on the roads, in the rivers and at the Base Camp of Qomolangma (known as Mount Everest in the West), and my heart was crying."
He said another reason for adventure was to repay the kindhearted people who helped him on last year"s trip, when he first thought about becoming a promoter of environmental protection.
Temperatures in Tibet in May can be frigid, and the weather was fickle, making it one of the biggest challenges on his journey.
Lin frequently encountered extreme weather conditions such as blizzards and hail, and on May 4, when climbing Zheduo Mountain in Sichuan, he ran into three snowstorms.
