Visit St Lucia To Get The Feel Of An Awesome Luxury Vacation Honestly I never thought of it until recently. It has taken me 33 years to realize its OK to say you"re an artist. I don"t know why but I always felt timid to talk about my art or even admit I drew or painted something... in the last three years I"ve come to terms with my talents and am totally embracing it and having such a fun time in the process. I used to always feel that the art I created was worthless and hated compliments. Wish I could have... stayed positive. It"s been more than a decade from the time when that first Funk Fest was performed, the event has blossomed into a 5 city annual event that attracts more than 10,000 people per city and is expected to invade a total of 15 cities by 2015. Funk Fest can be seen in Atlanta GA, Memphis TN, St. Petersburg/Tampa FL Jacksonville FL and now sport wristbands in Orlando FL.

Post Grad: Rated PG-13 for sexual situations and brief strong language. Alexis Bledel of Gilmore Girls fame stars as Ryden Malby, a woman with a plan. The plan was to do well in high school to get a scholarship to a great school, graduate and get a loft apartment in New York while working at the best publishing house. As you might predict, her post grad plan flops. She is forced to move back home and begins collecting a stack of rejected job applications. Fortunately her best friend Adam (Zack Gilford) eases her pain as does the hot next-door, neighbor David. Looks like Ryden needs a new plan. Looks cute but could go either way. If you are planning to visit the US as a part of the music travels, bet you wouldn"t want to miss the Ozzfest. This is the biggest as well as the most influential musical event of the world. Heavy metal is the language that is followed in the Ozzfest. If you are a fan of Ozzy and Black Sabbath, then do not forget to drag yourself to the closing ceremony of this musical fest. This is because those usually perform on the finishing day. Do keep in mind that the dates of this exclusive heavy metal festival wristbands fall in the month of August; it is organized every year. If you are like most people buying event wristbands (or armbands or bracelets) for an event, you want to be sure they"ll help you let the right people into a venue and that they"ll keep the wrong people out. Funk fest features artists like Frankie Beverly and Maze, Gap Band, New Edition, Whodini, Big Daddy Kane, Betty Wright, Rickey Smiley, Ohio Players, SOS Band, Cameo and many others. They will keep the crowd go wild with their music and vocal powers. Make life exciting, after all, life is not meant to be a spectator sport! Jump in and do things you haven"t experienced before, you will create memories that could last a lifetime.

Qu Xing, China"s ambassador to Belgium, has been appointed deputy director-general of UNESCO, an official at the embassy said on Thursday. Qu becomes another Chinese who has secured a prominent position in an international organization as the country gains a greater global presence.

The appointment was made by Audrey Azoulay, director-general of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, according to the official, who asked not to be named. UNESCO, based in Paris, had not commented by press time.

Qu, a scholar-turned-diplomat, was continuing his role as ambassador, the official said.

Qu was unavailable for comment, and it was unclear when he would be leaving to join UNESCO, the official said.

In a recent interview, Qu said China "is qualified" to provide international organizations with more professionals, especially because the nation is bearing an increasing share of financial responsibility within the organizations as well as participating more actively in working for global peace and development.

"The organizations are seeking more Chinese to work and the Chinese deserve a greater presence there because of China"s growing contribution," Qu said in the interview. It is, however, a challenge to find enough qualified professionals to fill all the vacancies, Qu said.

Using UNESCO as an example, Qu said, "The quota and vacancies for China are there, but it is not easy to find those Chinese who have a very good command of several languages at the same time." Aside from his native Chinese, Qu speaks French and English fluently.

Chinese now working for international organizations include Li Yong, former deputy minister of finance, who has started his second term as director-general of the Vienna-based United Nations Industrial Development Organization last year, and Jin Liqun, president of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, a China-initiated 84-member institution created to support regional development.

Justin Yifu Lin, now a professor with Peking University, served as chief economist and senior vice-president of the World Bank, where he served from 2008 to 2012, and Margaret Chan was director-general of the World Health Organization from 2007 to 2017.
