Vacation Destination: Memphis, Tennessee 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. July is the month that is ideal for organizing music travels to the UK. This is because it is in the month of July that the Cambridge Folk Festival is organized. This is a festival wristbands that is conducted on a yearly basis. It is world renowned for the eclectic mix that is followed during this festival. Besides becoming golf"s largest amateur golf tournament, the Golf.Com World Amateur Handicap Championship is one of the world"s greatest annual reunions. Golfers from every U.S. state and two dozen countries gather every year during the last week in August to not only compete in a professional tour-event wristbands, but also to renew friendships from years past, and make new ones for years to come. Passion Pit"s current hit Carried Away sport wristbands recently spent four weeks at No on the Alt-Nation weekly countdown on Sirius satellite radio. Its latest album, "Gossamer," debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 last year and also produced the radio hit, "Take A Walk." The band played "Saturday Night Live" in February and the Hollywood Bowl in September. They"ll also perform at Goldenvoice"s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on the weekends before and after Tachevah. Intensity - Not all 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. KEN STRINGFELLOW: I would have it sell a bajillion copies, like, tomorrow. I know it"s a great album, but I also know we"ll have to work hard to convince people it"s something to listen to. We"re not the latest, shiniest flavor. But we"re the tastiest. This I know! There are many keyboard shortcuts in Windows Vista that helps speed up common tasks. For example, pressing the Windows key and the spacebar makes that appear in Sidebar (As long as it works in the background), and the Windows key and T cycles through a combination of a live preview of the elements of the taskbar. You can also run items in the section of a quick start by holding Windows key and pressing the appropriate number(for Windows, a 1 to start the first rapid entry to run, and , etc.). In summary, you should learnhow to trade credit spreads as they are a great strategy for options traders, but you need to understand all the risks first and also how to manage and adjust the trade. It is an intermediate level strategy and not one that I would recommend for beginners.

LANZHOU -- With Christmas soon approaching, many young people are buying gifts and making dinner reservations, but Geng Yingying is thinking about a serious subject -- death.

Geng is a healthy 21-year-old student at Northwest Normal University in Gansu Province. She signed some documents to donate her body for medical research and education because she wants to leave a legacy to the world after her death.

She first learned about body donation through a volunteer activity in 2016. Not long after that, one of her friends died in an accident.

"I realized life is vulnerable and I wanted to make it more meaningful," she said.

Geng is one of a growing number of young Chinese who have registered as voluntary body donors in recent years.

The number of registered volunteers for body and organ donations surpassed 2,610 in Gansu by Nov 20, compared with just 80 in 2014, according to the statistics released by the local Red Cross Society.

In Beijing, more than 21,100 people applied to donate their cadavers by the end of 2017 since the city started a body donation registry in 1999. So far, over 2,600 donations have been used for medical research and education, according to the Beijing Red Cross Society.

There has been an increase in the number of young volunteers who are well educated and are more willing to accept new ideas. "We hope their actions could mobilize more people to support the cause," said Yuan Bo, secretary-general of the Gansu Provincial Red Cross Society.

He added that body and organ donations promote advancements in medicine and benefit a growing number of critically ill patients who need organ transplants.

Zhan Haibing is a postgraduate student in the School of Public Health at Lanzhou University. He refers to cadavers as "silent teachers."

""Silent teachers" have played an irreplaceable role in medical education and research. They can give medical students a real understanding of human bodies," Zhan said.

China"s body donation program started in the early 1980s.

Yuan attributed the traditional belief, lack of knowledge on donation procedures, and failure to obtain consent from families of the potential donors as three main reasons that have long hampered donations.

Chinese have traditionally held that a person"s body should remain intact because they believe there is an afterlife, and they see a traditional burial as an obligation of filial piety toward their elders.

Undoubtedly, Geng"s decision to donate her body was strongly opposed by her parents.

In China, the voluntary body donation registry needs consent from an executor who must be a direct relative of the donor, such as the parents, adult children or siblings.

She convinced her parents to support her at last. Her brother even signed as her executor.

As the laws and the overall environment for donation continue to improve, and people"s attitudes on funeral customs are gradually changing, body donations have become more acceptable.

Liang Jiali, another university student who registered to donate her body to science, said her parents strongly opposed her decision at first.

"I patiently explained to them my reasons and shared the stories of other donors. They finally understood me. To my surprise, my mother even decided to become a body donor too," Liang said.

People are showing more respect and understanding to the donors.

Last year, the Gansu Red Cross Society set up a memorial park for body and organ donors in the provincial capital Lanzhou. In the park stands a monument on which all of the donors" names are engraved.

Every Tomb-sweeping Day, the relatives and volunteers visit the park paying their tribute to these donors.

Meanwhile, many Chinese universities have advocated "life education." They ask their students to participate in volunteer activities in hospitals, funeral parlors, nursing homes and red cross societies to better understand the meaning of life.

Geng has also signed documents to donate her corneas. Her story has inspired many others to make the same choice.

"I know it requires courage," she said. "But if you can understand the real meaning of life, which is about giving back, you"ll find it"s not that difficult to make the decision."
