Many families say good-bye to summer by spending Labor Day weekend at Virginia Beach. The Verizon Wireless American festival wristbands will entertain people of all ages with oceanfront concerts, food and fun. Mickey"s very Merry Christmas Party is a great way for you and your family to have a unique experience in Walt Disney World while celebrating Christmas. The park is open only to those guests who purchase the party tickets. There is a bit of a jam entering the park since it is only open 7pm-12am, but you can enter as early as 4pm with your party tickets to avoid the rush. We received event wristbands upon entering the two times my family attended the party and then the entire Magic Kingdom is open for your enjoyment. If you are going for the rides then you will luck out because there is no wait for majority of the rides once the party begins depending on the date of your party. At any date, your wait should not exceed 15 minutes for any given ride. And Cleveland punk legend Cheetah Chrome - guitarist for seminal Cle-punk acts Rocket from the Tombs and The Dead Boys - teamed up with Sylvain Sylvain of the New York Dolls for a new band called The Batusis, which played at SXSW as well. Imagine being tasked with "X" number of duties. Imagine as you address each issue in turn, nearly every solution you forward is then ridiculed. That ridicule is then disseminated as the only voice heard. What do you think might be the result of such events? Would people dislike you sport wristbands or your actions? What if your action was the only reasonable one given the situation, yet still your solutions are defamed and ridiculed? Variety - Move in a variety of ways. Think beyond "traditional" work outs and incorporate things like balance, agility, flexibility, power, speed, strength, calisthenics, "spinal hygiene", sports, dance, play, and so on. Think outside the box. There"s more to exercise (and life) than "cardio" and "resistance". Now, the great news for you is performing skills, like all skills, can be developed and nurtured through the right type of practice, training and coaching. And, many of these performing skills are abilities that you already possess. Further, in terms of performing, a little bit goes a long way. You will be thrilled how a few little changes make your presentation a lot more fun for you and your audience.
NEW DELHI -- India government Friday cautioned people especially investors about risks of trading in virtual currencies (VCs) or cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, officials said.
"There has been a phenomenal increase recently in the price of VCs including Bitcoin, in India and globally. The VCs don"t have any intrinsic value and are not backed by any kind of assets. The price of Bitcoin and other VCs therefore is entirely a matter of mere speculation resulting in spurt and volatility in their prices," a statement issued by India"s finance ministry said.
The ministry said VCs are not backed by government decree and described them as Ponzi schemes.
"There is a real and heightened risk of investment bubble of the type seen in Ponzi schemes which can result in sudden and prolonged crash exposing investors, especially retail consumers losing their hard-earned money," the ministry officials said. "Consumers need to be alert and extremely cautious as to avoid getting trapped in such Ponzi schemes."
A Ponzi scheme is a form of fraud in which belief in the success of a non-existent enterprise is fostered by the payment of quick returns to the first investors from money invested by later investors.
Bitcoin, has emerged as world"s biggest and best-known cryptocurrency and has gained more than 19-fold this year.
"The government also makes it clear that VCs do not have any regulatory permission or protection in India. The investors and other participants therefore deal with these VCs entirely at their risk and should best avoid participating therein," the finance ministry officials said.
