Ladies In Music Alphabet-- The Judds 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. Maybe one of these 10 plans will make it to your family"s weekend calendar. There"s one sport wristbands more possibility to consider. Doing nothing at all is one way to celebrate what Labor Day is all about, a holiday for the average working person. The next band I spoke with was Company. Company is a self-described indie rock sounding band. The band members are now living in Charleston, South Carolina. Used to playing empty bar rooms, Company is excited to be playing at the SXSW festival this year. AB: Well, I can"t speak for Justin, although I probably could. But my influences range from Prince to Depeche Mode. I"m a huge fan of Georgio Moroder, who did a lot of the electronic dance music in the late seventies and eighties. He did the soundtrack to Scarface, a lot of Donna Summer music . . . I really like that instrumental, dance music, but I also really like classical music: Bach, Beethoven, Bosner. JON AUER: I spent a couple of weeks in Minneapolis making a record with a band called The Melismatics who I think are fantastic. Beyond the music, they also inspired me with their work ethic with was superlative. I also just played with a band while I was recently in Singapore called Typewriter who I had a great time with. We played together, some of my songs, some of theirs, kind of a musical cultural exchange at a big festival wristbands there. Undoubtedly, you will want the event wristbands to be centred on those to whom you are going to address. Each specific type of audience will have different issues and interests. You know what this means, right? In addition to the obvious outward physical improvements that movement provides, it also directly contributes to improvements in mood, learning, memory, focus, hormonal communication, immune function, and every other physical, mental and emotional function you can think of. Maybe after Bush is gone we can actually get around to nailing Barney Frank and Chris Dodd to a wall. I mean, with no Republican to blame, the press will have to blame someone, right? Stick around friends - it"s just gettin" good!

BEIJING - China has requested newly recruited civilian personnel in the military to take an oath just as servicemen do, according to a recent document issued by the General Office of the Central Military Commission.

Civilian personnel in the military should make hand salutes when in uniform and salute with their eyes when armed, injured or sick, which is in accordance with the rules for servicemen, said the document.

It also stipulated the moves of civilian personnel in formations and restrictions on their contact with overseas personnel and outbound trips.

In July, the military started recruiting "civilian personnel" in an effort to build talent-strong armed forces. The recruitment mission, which was the first of its kind since deeper reform was introduced to the national defense and armed forces in late 2015, has attracted a large number of applicants.
