Special attention urged for thedisney manufacturing locations disabledVirgin Music Festival: Day 2 Recap It"s that time of year again. As spring settles in (albeit slowly), the summer music festival season in Denver is hard on its heels. We"ll be giving you a heads-up about some of these events as they approach-and we"ll start with the annual Westword Music Showcase, to be held June 22, 2013. Orchid and Hound is a pop duo consisting of John Constantine and Lawrence Alarcon they are a pop duo with a classical influence. The duo formed their band last summer and had their first gig last September. They are very excited to be performing at the festival wristbands so quickly after getting together to perform. When asked what was the craziest thing to happen to them so far while performing the answer was a humorous one. It Might Get Loud: PG for mild thematic elements, brief language and smoking. 97 mins. Guitar soloists and trendsetters Jimmy Page, The Edge and Jack White sit down together to discuss their style, how they crafted it, to teach and to talk all things guitar. SET THE DATE: The date of your event will depend on a couple of things. If it is a birthday or anniversary event wristbands then you are controlled by the date. If it is just a party the date may be controlled by the locations availability. If the event is at your home then you are in control. Pick what ever date you want. I have even gone as far as check with some guests a couple weeks in advance to make sure they are available on a certain date. I really like success! WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO HAVE YOUR EVENT? Location is usually the area of the least control. Some locations require a reservation a year in advance, so you can not wait until the last minute. Researching locations 18 - 24 months in advance may help relieve a lot of stress early on. I you are having the party at your house then you just need sport wristbands to deal with the family. So weigh your odds early on! To close multiple folders and applications on Taskbar items at a time, hold down the Ctrl key double click on on each of them in turn.

President emphasizes they are "equal members of global family"
President Xi Jinping called for special attention in taking care of people with disabilities because they are "equal members of the global family".
Xi made the remark on Thursday in a congratulatory letter to the High-Level Intergovernmental Meeting on the Midpoint Review of the Asian and Pacific Decade of Persons with Disabilities (2013-22). Meeting attendees will review the progress made in the past five years and agree on future policy for building disability-inclusive societies.
Xi said special attention is needed for people with disabilities to promote sustainable development on a global scale and make sure no one is left behind. China will as always stand behind the international efforts.
China has provided examples that other countries can learn from, said Kaveh Zahedi, deputy executive secretary of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific.
"In the past five years, a million people with disabilities in China have been absorbed into the labor market," said Zahedi. "That"s because 3,000 employment centers are dedicated to people with disabilities and 30,000 people worked on connecting people with disabilities with job opportunities."
State Councilor Wang Yong said Beijing is willing to further strengthen cooperation with UN agencies and Asia-Pacific countries and regions to promote the "Asian and Pacific Decade of Persons with Disabilities".
The idea for the decade was first brought up by China in 1992 to recognize the importance of building disability-inclusive societies in the region. According to the UN, the area has over 690 million people with disabilities.
In 2012, the Incheon Strategy to Make the Right Real for Persons with Disabilities in Asia and the Pacific was approved at a meeting in South Korea to help the region track progress in improving quality of life and fulfillment of rights.
Shamshad Akhtar, executive secretary of ESCAP, said the five major challenges of people with disabilities are living in poverty, underrepresentation in political structures and decision-making processes, constrained development opportunities for women, the magnified risk posed by disasters, and being unidentified and undercounted in the region.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said in his message that to overcome the challenges, the path toward inclusive, accessible and usable facilities, technologies, infrastructure, services and products must be ensured by, for and with people with disabilities.
On Friday, ESCAP is expected to release a report, Building Disability-Inclusive Societies in Asia and the Pacific: Assessing Progress of the Incheon Strategy.
