Top 10 Fall Music Festivals Zoo Brew at the Memphis Zoo is an annual event that offers the taste of beers from around the world. While sipping some brew you can take in some local art from Skippy Gronauer and Susan Inman. You have to be 21 or older for this event and while you are having your cultural moment you will be helping the zoo with any purchases made of the art. This takes place Friday, August 31 at 6:30-9:30 P.M. For Members it is a cover charge of $15 and for non-members you can get in for $20.

Movement is essential to optimal health. I like to say, "Motion is Life". It"s not something you do only when you have time, or when you need to lose some weight, or because your cardiologist told you to. It"s part of sport wristbands every single day. Or, it should be. Zoo Grass provides entertainment from Mean Green Music that can be enjoyed while you are taking in all of the sites of the zoo. It is included in admission. He will be headlining the "Shoes For Running" tour in support of his second solo studio album, "Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors". Big Boi recently released a music video for the album"s current single, "Apple of My Eye" which you can watch here. If you are visiting Lorne around New Years then you might consider going to the Lorne Falls Festival. This is now Victoria"s biggest outdoor festival wristbands. The setting is a farm at the back of Lorne and the festival features some of Australia"s and the world"s top performing artists. Deciding on what event wristbands you want to host will help narrow down your choices. If you would like to host Murder Mystery Play, it will require a good size place and extra people to perform. If you wish to host a Mystery game, you can host in your own home or find a small venue that will not require many extra people to help you. Summary: For those old enough to remember the 80"s, or those with an affinity for big hair and acid washed jeans, this one is just for you. I would walk from Denver to Morrison just to see Whitesnake, let alone with Judas Priest. There is a reason these bands have stood the test of time, they still know how to rock. This is sure to be one of those nights when mom and dad don"t come home until well after midnight. You will need to decide what color your mask is to be and begin purchasing the necessary matching supplies. You will want to make sure that you paint the mask first and once it is dry, you can begin to apply your different accent pieces. You can have feathers jutting out from the mask or hanging down from it. You can use ribbons decorated with sequins for additional decorative style. There are unlimited ways that you can decorate the mask. There are several websites that can give you helpful fits but the most important thing is to release your inner artist and go for it.

Report unveils plan to tighten grip on emissions and reduce pollution

China intends to implement its strictest vehicle emissions regulation yet to further reduce air pollution, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment said in a report released on Friday.

The ministry will expand supervision over the quality of diesel products and diesel engines and increase the use of rail transportation in freight services to cut back air pollution, the report said.

Emissions from diesel trucks, which make up only 7.8 percent of automotive vehicles in China, account for 57.3 percent of nitrogen oxide and 77.8 percent of particulate matter in the country"s air, two major polluters, according to the report.

Automotive vehicles have emerged as a major source of China"s air pollution, it said.

As of 2017, China had been the largest vehicle producer and buyer in the world for the nine consecutive years, with 310 million automotive vehicles on its roads at the end of last year, up 5.1 percent from the previous year.

These vehicles emitted about 43.59 million metric tons of pollutants, down 2.5 percent year-on-year, the report showed.

Yin Hang, head of the Policy Research Department of the ministry"s Vehicle Emission Control Center, said China has phased out more than 20 million outdated diesel vehicles in the past five years.

The country should further supervise production, use and elimination of automotive vehicles to reduce air pollution, Yin said at a recent forum on air pollution control.

In 2017, ports in Tianjin and Shandong province banned the use of diesel trucks to transport coal in the Bohai Sea area to improve air quality.

An analysis of air pollutants in 15 major Chinese cities showed that local mobile emitters, a category that includes vehicles, contributed about 13.5 percent to 41 percent of fine particulate matter, according to the ministry.

Beijing has made addressing motor vehicle emissions a focus of this year"s air pollution control work.

High-emissions vehicles will be taken off the roads in the capital to help control smog-extending the ban on such vehicles within Beijing"s Sixth Ring Road-said Mayor Chen Jining at the opening of the first session of the 15th Beijing People"s Congress in January.

Liu Bingjiang, head of air quality management at the ministry, said, "Targeting motor vehicle exhaust emissions is a precise treatment for Beijing"s smoggy weather, because studies have found they are the top source of the city"s major air pollutants."

The factors causing Beijing"s air pollution have changed dramatically, with coal-burning now accounting for less than 10 percent of the city"s energy, and over 80 percent of Beijing"s industries now in the service sector, Liu said at a news conference.
