Planning A Dog-Friendly Vacation One part grimy dive bar and one part hip live music venue, Off Broadway walks a thin line. The St. Louis venue isn"t so ghetto and grungy that it scares off well known out-of-town groups, and it"s not so pristine and sterile that it seems awkward to watch a local garage band play there on a Wednesday. For those who live in or near St. Louis and have developed a taste for punk, indie rock and Stag, Off Broadway may be the best music venue around. 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. The Cadieux Cafe played a role in the band"s early years as a part of the venue"s Mussel Beach festival wristbands in 2001. They have come a long way since and suffered some hardship and line-up changes along the way. In late 2001, bass player DeNardo experienced a serious stroke which left his right arm paralyzed. After a great deal of local outreach to fund his physical rehabilitation and an ingenious solution to keep him up front with the band, he now performs his bass-lines on a keyboard system. He"s back in fine form. You event wristbands know what this means right? In addition to the obvious outward physical improvements that movement provides, it also directly contributes to improvements in mood, learning, memory, focus, hormonal communication, immune function, and every other physical, mental and emotional function you can think of. Cinderella"s Castle is beautifully and festively lit up with holiday lights and it will appear like it"s snowing on Main Street throughout the Party as well. There are dance parties in Tomorrowland and Fantasyland too and the Christmas ornament shop in Liberty Square even seems a sport wristbands bit more festive during the party. Whether at the New England Country Music Festival, or at any of the other national festivals, people nationwide have shown an enduring love for the music.

China welcomes the United States" willingness to develop a stable military-to-military relationship, but will remain steadfast in safeguarding national sovereignty and security, a senior Chinese military official said on Saturday in Singapore.

In a keynote speech at the annual Shangri-La Dialogue on Saturday morning, acting US Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan said that China and the US can still have a cooperative relationship. Although competition does exist between the two countries, it does not always mean conflict, he added.

Shanahan also noted some "destabilizing activities" in Asia and emphasized the US"s military presence and commitment in the region. He called for more communication between the US and Chinese militaries to settle their differences and build a constructive relationship.

Lieutenant General Shao Yuanming, deputy chief of the Joint Staff Department of China"s Central Military Commission, said in an afternoon media briefing on behalf of the Chinese delegation that the People"s Liberation Army appreciates the US" willingness to communicate and maintain a stable China-US military relationship.

However, Shao said Shanahan also made some inaccurate claims on China"s military development and strategic intentions in his speech, "and the PLA resolutely opposes these accusations".

Regarding the Taiwan question, the US side has reiterated its military support to the island based on the so-called Taiwan Relation Act.

"I must stress that Taiwan is an inseparable part of China, and the one-China principle is the foundation of China-US relations and an international consensus," Shao said.

"The US side has conducted a series of negative rhetoric and actions regarding the Taiwan question, violated the one-China principle and the three China-US joint communiques," he said.

"This has undermined China"s sovereignty and security, sent a seriously wrong message to Taiwan secessionists, and disrupted regional peace and stability," Shao said, adding that China must, and will be, reunified.

"If anyone tries to separate Taiwan from the mainland, the Chinese military will adamantly protect its territorial integrity at all costs," he said.

As for the South China Sea, Shanahan accused China of undermining freedom of navigation and overflight in the region, and militarizing the local islands.
