Campaigners renew calls for national ban on smokingbracelet custom silicone in public
Defqon 1 2011 Music Festival In Netherlands
Festival wristbands are made up of 100% silicone, and are very popular among teenagers. These wristbands have become a unisex fashion accessory. These can be worn by children, adults and youngsters.
Every year groups of musicians band together to tour the states. After the success of the CMA Country festival wristbands in 2009, the summer of 2010 burst open with more energy and even more diverse acts. Nearly every major city hosted a tour and not a single one lacked the full octane buzz that Country offers. Since "91 the Chicago Country festival wristbands at Soldier Field has been the ripest environment for newcomers to the genre. Chicago mayor Richard Daley confessed he had a weak spot for the slide guitar with the moaning pitch of steel on steel. The first year of the festival, 42,000 fans supported his love and ever since, it has been one of the biggest summer events for the genre.
KEN STRINGFELLOW I don"t know if things were missing from other records that"s a bit harsh event wristbands but I think we were just ready to prove some things and very inspired on this album.
AB: Oh wow, that"s really hard. I think it would have to be "family." I was an only child that"s the closest thing I have to that bond. I would imagine that"s what it feels like.
KEN STRINGFELLOW I love a couple bands I worked with recently--Oh Libia from Spain who are like freaked out Apples In Stereo and sport wristbands Hanggai from Beijing who mix Mongolian folk music with rock and indie sounds.
JON AUER: To me, it"s become both less precious and yet more accomplished somehow. I"d point to the years of experience, together and apart, as the reason - we have so much more creative "water" to draw from "the well" so to speak.
"It was a really big thing for me," says Brad Warner, director of the punk documentary film "Cleveland"s Screaming." His documentary offers a glimpse into the fire that burned inside members of the Cleveland and Akron punk scenes.

Anti-tobacco campaigners in China have renewed calls for a national ban on smoking in public spaces.
Many provinces and cities have rolled out regulations to protect citizens against secondhand smoke and raised taxes on cigarettes and other tobacco products.
Yet the Beijing-based Thinktank Research Center for Health Development, which lobbies for tougher tobacco control, called on Wednesday for increased measures to create a smoke-free environment for the public.
The latest draft of a basic medical care and health promotion law, which was released in October and is under review by the National People’s Congress Standing Committee, highlights publicity campaigns to curb smoking and higher taxes for tobacco products.
Kelvin Khow, a technical officer for the World Health Organization’s Tobacco Free Initiative, said the new draft is encouraging, “but regarding smoke-free public places, we need stronger wording — to ban smoking in all indoor areas”.
The draft uses less-specific words like “control smoking in public places”, he said.
Khow said nearly 90 percent of Chinese are not protected by any smoke-free law, making them vulnerable to health risks from secondhand smoke.
“We’re hurting people by not acting on a national law,” he said.
Twenty-one Chinese cities have banned smoking in indoor public spaces, with the latest being Xi’an, capital of Shaanxi province, in November.
Zhangjiakou, co-host of the 2022 Winter Olympics, is expected to join them soon. It released a draft regulation in September.
Wu Yiqun, deputy director of the Thinktank Research Center for Health Development, said tobacco companies are hindering the launch of a nationwide ban.
“At the very least, we should stop advertising and sponsorship by tobacco businesses and introduce larger graphic warnings on all tobacco products,” she said. “A healthy China must be smoke free.”
