What To Expect At A Music Festival Founded in 1987 in Bellingham, Washington long before Grunge was even a word, their came a small indie group, with tremendous staying power called The Posies. Taking Woodstock: Rated R for graphic nudity, some sexual content, drug use and language. 120 mins. A comedy based on the real-life story of Elliot Tiber (Demetri Martin), whose family was involved in making the Woodstock Music and Arts Festival happen. The bank is about to foreclose on the family motel and Elliot moves back home to help his parents. When he learns the permit for the festival wristbands in a neighboring town has been cancelled, he contacts the producers and tries to drum up some business for the motel. Three weeks later half a million people are on their way to his neighbor"s farm and his life will be forever changed. This sport wristbands decision has a lot to do with your goals.

Some hosts like to have some type of token and cashiering system, so each contributor gets one token per item that they may then use to "buy" their selections. Displaying the items can be as simple or fancy as you want it to be. Some set up tables, ladders, and racks to set items on. Others just drape them over whatever is handy. When swapping clothes, it is important to have a dressing room and mirror available for attendees. Once you have an idea of how much space you require, you can go about choosing the right size. It is generally helpful to have a per person estimation of space in square feet. This can help you work out how much space you will need depending on the number of people expected. The space required per person, for a buffet-event wristbands is likely to be smaller than that needed for a seated event. Guinness Book of World Records title for the largest pecan pie ever baked! The town has also managed to score the record for the largest pecan cookie, brownie, and pecan and ice cream party! The next band I spoke with was Company. Company is a self-described indie rock sounding band. The band members are now living in Charleston, South Carolina. Used to playing empty bar rooms, Company is excited to be playing at the SXSW festival this year. Wherever your Labor Day weekend plans take you, be careful on the road.

WASHINGTON -- Chinese researchers produced healthy mice with two mothers that went on to have normal offspring of their own.

The study published on Thursday in the journal Cell Stem Cell used stem cells and targeted gene editing to render same sex reproduction.

"We tried to find out whether more normal mice with two female parents, or even mice with two male parents, could be produced using haploid embryonic stem cells with gene deletions," said the paper"s co-senior author Zhou Qi, professor of Institute of Zoology under the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Mice from two dads were also born but only survived for a couple of days, according to the study.

Some reptiles, amphibians, and fish can reproduce with one parent of the same sex, but it is challenging for mammals to do the same even with the help of fertilization technology.

In mammals, certain maternal or paternal genes are shut off during germline development by a mechanism called genomic imprinting, so that offsprings that don"t receive genetic material from both a mother and a father might experience developmental abnormalities or might not be viable.

The researchers managed to delete those imprinted genes from immature eggs to produce bi-maternal mice in the past. "However, the generated mice still showed defective features, and the method itself is very impractical and hard to use," said Zhou.

Zhou"s team used haploid embryonic stem cells (ESCs), which contain half the normal number of chromosomes and DNA from only one parent and created the mice with two mothers by deleting three imprinting regions of the genome from haploid ESCs containing a female parent"s DNA and injected them into eggs from another female mouse.

They produced 29 live mice from 210 embryos. The mice were normal, lived to adulthood, and had babies of their own, according to the study.

"We found in this study that haploid ESCs were more similar to primordial germ cells, the precursors of eggs and sperm. The genomic imprinting that"s found in gametes was erased," said the paper"s co-senior author Hu Baoyang from the same institute.

They produced 12 live, full-term mice with two genetic fathers with a similar but more complicated procedure. Haploid ESCs containing only a male parent"s DNA were modified to delete seven key imprinted regions.

The edited haploid ESCs were then injected, along with sperm from another male mouse, into an egg cell that had its nucleus, and therefore its female genetic material, removed.

This resulted in an embryo containing only genomic DNA from the two male parents. These embryos were transferred along with placental material to surrogate mothers, who carried them to term.

Those pups survived 48 hours after birth, but the researchers are planning to improve the process so that the bi-paternal mice live to adulthood.

The researchers said that there were still obstacles to using these methods in other mammals, including the need to identify problematic imprinted genes that are unique to each species.
