According to relevant reports Netease, since the beginning of this year, five provinces in southwest China suffered a severe drought, no rain for months continued into March, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia are beginning to have serious drought, which flows through the five countries Mekong River water level dropped to the lowest level in 20 years. To this end, the lower Mekong countries criticized China’s Upper Mekong dams in the drought intensified. In fact, the Mekong River since ancient times “is not and the water,” joked, but the debate on this issue has continued for decades.

Around the Mekong River water resources development of the three disputed

Controversial one: repair of dams in the upstream river will affect the ecological balance?

Environmental protection Organization: Mekong dams accelerated the reduction of water, water quality, changes in water flow has caused a series of questions: for example, Vietnam’s “rice bowl” Mekong Delta River erosion are due to seasonal flooding and the unique Arid Changes affected.

Thai fishermen: the unpredictability of salt to bring the production of agricultural and fishery losses. Thailand Parmon dam near the fishermen said, “when the dam burst the first time, Hanoi was scared to scattered fish. Dam projects after the beginning of the year, Hanoi has no fish.”

The Chinese government: the dam is the biggest ecological impact of sediment to flow downstream fewer, because the silt gathered in a reservoir, but this objective so that the Mekong River for irrigation and navigation more convenient. Former minister of China Ministry of Water Resources, Association of China Wang Shucheng more dams, “said the ecological water Environment Impact only on the watershed area, but if you do not affect the development and construction of water damage to the global ecological environment. “

Controversy II: repair of dams in the upper reaches of the river is dirty water will decrease?

Environmental protection Organization: Council. Construction of dam would change the law in each of the ups and downs the water, which makes water the downstream countries subject to the upper reaches of the state regulation of water demand. Mekong River in the past few months the region is indeed reduced precipitation, which is not only a natural drought, or by the upper reaches of the impact of large dams projects.

Mekong River Commission: no. Mekong River water level drop is caused by the drought rather than natural causes caused the dam. Rainfall in the Mekong River Basin in 2009 dropped by 30%, while the rainy season but end month and a half earlier than usual, which makes the Mekong and its tributaries, smaller volume of water. “Upstream flood control dams have a positive effect”, the Mekong River Commission President Jeremy Bird said, “If there are no dams upstream, downstream in January of this year is likely to have been shortage of water supply problems.”

Chinese government: no. Average annual runoff of the departure Lancang Mekong River to the sea only 13.5% of average annual runoff of the Mekong water main outside the Mekong River from China (86.5%). Water evaporation from reservoirs, small hydropower, hydropower does not consume water running. Moreover, China has no inter-basin water transfer Lancang River Basin Plan, along the very few industrial and agricultural water consumption, the demand on limited water resources. Lancang River Hydropower Development almost no effect on downstream water.

Controversial three: no effect after the completion of the dam, who is in charge?

Mekong River Commission (MRC): Mekong River Commission, an advisory in the form of Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, the development of water resources issues in four countries for data detection and information analysis, but on the national implementation of the project without any decision. At present, the downstream countries of dams on river water temperature conditions on the authority of the data, mostly from the agency on rainfall, river levels and floods clock of the periodic reports.

China: China’s Yunnan Province has its own testing system, but never in the past 15 years, the downstream country open. March 25 this year, China announced its willingness to offer the first time in Yunnan Jinghong Hydropower Station Dam and water level information Manwan. However, the Chinese government within the data provided only for the assessment of the dam.

Environmental organizations: Thailand’s “Siamese River of Life,” “Save the Mekong Union” and other environmental organizations, environmental groups are opposed to dam the Mekong River (especially hydroelectric dam) of the active non-governmental forces, they through the organization of the various inter-regional forums, published articles in the media side of “supervision” of China and its construction of the dam.

Michael Nesmith with D.A. Wallach Wed, 22 Mar 2017 08:22:18 +0000 Michael Nesmith with D.A. Wallach
Event on 2017-04-27 20:00:00
Thursday, April 27, 2017, 8pm.  Michael Nesmith in conversation with D.A. Wallach discussing his upcoming memoir, Infinite Tuesday: An Autobiographical Riff TICKETS: General Admission seat + a copy of Infinite Tuesday Michael Nesmith's career in music and television took him from starring in The Monkees to a celebrated run of albums as a solo artist and in the First National Band.

He is the author of two novels and the founder of the Pacific Arts Corporation, which produces projects in the worlds of audio, video, and virtual reality, including Videoranch 3D.

Influenced in equal parts by the consciousness-expanding ambitions of Timothy Leary and the cerebral humor of Douglas Adams, in Infinite Tuesday, Nesmith spins a spellbinding tale of an unexpected life, in which stories about meeting John Lennon, or recording with Nashville greats, or inventing the music video trace an arc from Hollywood to Silicon Valley, illuminating a remarkable mind along the way. D.A. Wallach is a recording artist, songwriter, investor, and essayist who Kanye West and Pharrell Williams discovered while he was an undergraduate at Harvard College. He has been featured in GQ, Rolling Stone, Vogue, and numerous other publications, and has toured with N*E*R*D, Lady Gaga, and Weezer. D.A. has also performed on TV Shows including Jimmy Kimmel Live and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

In 2015, he launched Inevitable Ventures, an investment partnership with multibillionaire Ron Burkle that supports radical entrepreneurs in areas ranging from health care to labor. In 2016, D.A. made his feature film debut in La La Land, which won a record number of Golden Globe Awards and received 14 Academy Award nominations, making it one of the 3 most nominated films in history. He frequently publishes essays on media, technology, and philosophy  on his website and Medium.  Ticket sales are final.  No refunds.

Lighted Makeup Mirrors For Makeup Beauty Stations Tue, 21 Mar 2017 19:45:51 +0000
by David McKelvey

Often you might see lighted makeup mirrors on video shots of film stars preparing their makeup. After doing this, these actors know that their makeup will look good under the harsh stage lights. These mirrors help artists put on makeup just right. For a woman who is about to put on her makeup, the mirror allows the best over all view of her face. The clearer and brighter the mirror is, the better aid it is for putting on makeup. Mirrors are an absolutely necessary part of beauty makeup stations.

Reveals Your Facial Features
A makeup mirror that is lighted has features that ensure that when one looks into it, all the blemishes, warts, moles, small rashes, fine lines and tiniest details are revealed. This is important when applying makeup. When you start a daily ritual of cleaning your face, toning and moisturizing, a lighted makeup mirror lets you know if you missed any places.

Kinds of Mirrors
There are different kinds of lighted mirrors. The magnifying makeup mirrors can have 10x magnification and many are distortion free. This is important when trying to see the tiniest and finest detail. Some mirrors are double-sided. One side is no magnification while the other side is magnified.

Wall Mounts
There are magnifying wall mounted makeup mirrors. One kind can be pulled back and swiveled to whatever side that one would want to see clearly. Another kind is the magnifying, double-sided wall mirror that extends a short distance from the wall with both sides lighted.

One type of vanity makeup mirror lights up when used, sits on a pedestal and is made of brushed brass. It is ideal for home use which you can use even when you just want to clean your face or fix your hair.

Another kind of lighted makeup mirror that you can use at home is the lighted, double sided, round mirror. It features a regular mirror on one side, and the magnifying mirror on the other side. Both sides use a halo light for added brilliance and clarity.

For traveling, a fold-away compact makeup mirror features a 10x magnification that mimics natural day and night light. It is made so that one can see clearly while cleaning and grooming. This compact design folds easily and can be placed in a bag.

A lighted magnifying makeup mirror that has 5x magnification with 4 light settings is another choice. This kind of mirror uses the available light. It can be used in daylight or evening, in the office or at home. The mirror has 3 panels to provide wide angle viewing, and has a side view mirror panels for custom viewing and can be closed,is compact for traveling.

Every woman has her likes and dislikes. Some women think that the mirror they use should show the tiniest detail even without their eyeglasses on. Because of this, women scour the market for the best, most convenient lighted makeup mirror.

Old 97’s Sun, 19 Mar 2017 12:22:09 +0000 Old 97’s
Event on 2017-06-10 21:00:00

In 1996, Old 97s recorded Too Far to Care. It was their major-label debutfollowing two independent releases and a year-long bidding war, the Dallas-based quartet had signed with Elektra Records. But rather than venture into some state-of-the-art studio in New York or LA, the band decamped to Village Productions in Tornillo, Texas, a remote facility in the middle of two thousand acres of pecan trees near the Mexican border, with a mixing board acquired from an engineer who had worked on some of Queens albums. Now over twenty years later, they have returned to record their eleventh studio album, Graveyard Whistling.[Too Far To Care] is the sound that best defined us, says Rhett Miller, the lead singer and primary songwriter. It was a really magical time, and we go back to it a lot in our collective memory.And so when it came time for the bandwhich still consists of the same four members: Miller, guitarist Ken Bethea, bassist Murry Hammond, and drummer Philip Peeplesto record their newest endeavor, producer Vance Powell brought up the idea of returning to Tornillo. We knew instantly that it was the perfect move, says Miller. We werent trying to remake Too Far to Care, but to make something where fans would say, This band hasnt lost a step in twenty-some years.The result is the eleven songs of Graveyard Whistling, from a group that has earned the respect and veneration as one of the pioneers of the alt-country movement, while still retaining the raucous energy, deceptive cleverness, and knockabout spirit that first distinguished them from the pack. The record comes out blazing with the breakneck shuffle of I Dont Want to Die in This Town (based on a possibly apocryphal quote from Frank Sinatra), and maintaining that feverish intensity even when the tempo drops on songs like the more contemplative All Who Wander. Echoes of such barroom saints as the Replacements and the Pogues appear on sing-alongs Bad Luck Charm and Irish Whiskey Pretty Girls, but bigger and more mature issues simmer underneath the steamroller swing.Returning to Tornillo was more than just a novelty, and proved key to the albums direction. At some point renamed Sonic Ranch, the studio has been expanded and updated, but the band went back into the same recording space. They even stayed in the same bedroomsMiller opened the drawer of his nightstand and found a note that he had written twenty years earlier.The time-travel element cant be overstated, says the singer. It was a beautiful feeling of completing a circlewere the same people, but we had grown so much as bandmates and friends. It really made me believe in the power of experience and that you do get better with time. Were capable of so much more now than we were two decades prior, but it also felt like we just took a coffee break in 1996 and now here we were, sitting back down to make a new record.After all this time, Old 97s also found themselves in the interesting position of following up the most critically acclaimed, highest charting record of their career, 2014s Most Messed Up. We didnt expect that kind of reception for Most Messed Upin the current climate, says Miller. It was very cool, and weird, a great feeling but also a newfound pressure.
