What Kind Of Tent To Bring To A Music Festival It"s that time of year again. As spring settles in (albeit slowly), the summer music festival season in Denver is hard on its heels. We"ll be giving you a heads-up about some of these events as they approach-and we"ll start with the annual Westword Music Showcase, to be held June 22, 2013.

The Agricenter is hosting the Delta Fair and festival wristbands on August 31-September 9. You will know you are there when you smell the funnel cakes and corn dogs that give you the full fair food experience. As you enter the park purchase a wrist band so that you can enjoy everything that the fair has to offer. Browse through the many arts and crafts vendors. There is a ride for everyone to enjoy and there is a kid zone that offers fun for everyone to enjoy with the kids. You will be amazed by all of the roaming fair entertainers and taking aback when you see two people eating away at watermelons for a prize. At the end of the evening make sure to stop and take in the lights of the fair. This is definitely the top pick of things to do for Labor Day Weekend. One of the principal risks with this strategy is a sudden and very sharp move against you (usually this occurs on the downside, so is more relevant for sellers of bull put spreads). If you are concerned about this happening, you could always enter a stop loss order just on your sold option. By doing this, if the market moves quickly, you will get out of your sold option, limiting your losses and hold only the long option which may end up making a profit if the market continues in that direction. These gains will help, and could potentially even outstrip the losses made on the sold option. If you"re worried about a "flash crash" event wristbands, this is one way to protect yourself. At this second President Bush just finished his last official press conference as POTUS. He started out the presser with a conciliatory and reflective tone sport wristbands but as I watched the presser progress one could see a change taking place. The first question from the reporters was if he thought he"d made any mistakes. It just went downhill from there. Funk fest features artists like Frankie Beverly and Maze, Gap Band, New Edition, Whodini, Big Daddy Kane, Betty Wright, Rickey Smiley, Ohio Players, SOS Band, Cameo and many others. They will keep the crowd go wild with their music and vocal powers. Just do something else. "Can"t" run for a few weeks because of a knee injury? Swim, do yoga, work on your balance and flexibility, walk your dog more often. "Can"t" make it to the gym or your exercise classes because of a change in your schedule? Do something different at home - borrow some new exercise DVDs from a friend, or sign some out from the library. Try something new. It"s "everyday guy and gal"s golf tournament," where competitors find out what it feels like to play in a professional tour tournament. And once you"ve tried it, you tend to return year after year.

Discoverer of key substance in therapy confident in overcoming resistance issue

Artemisinin will continue to be the priority drug for the treatment of malaria, despite signs of drug resistance to artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACT) in some countries, Nobel laureate Tu Youyou said on Monday.

Tu, who won the 2015 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine for the discovery of artemisinin, said drug resistance has remained a big challenge to anti-malaria workers.

Tu said her team has proposed solutions to the problem of artemisinin resistance, adding it was still "the best weapon" against malaria.

ACTs have been the most effective treatment recommended by the World Health Organization to fight malaria, which causes more than 400,000 deaths worldwide every year, mostly in African countries, according to the WHO.

However, reports that increased time is needed for parasite clearance for the therapies in countries in the Greater Mekong Subregion, including Cambodia, Myanmar and Laos, have stirred speculation that malaria parasites may have developed resistance to artemisinin.

As a solution, Tu"s team proposed adjustment to the existing therapies, including extending the course of a therapy from three days to five or seven and replacing accessory drugs against which parasites have developed resistance in ACTs with other drugs.

The new therapies have been effective in solving drug resistance problems in ACTs, the team said.

Tu, a researcher at the China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences, said artemisinin will continue to be effective as a malaria treatment for a long time. In addition, with its low treatment cost - only a few dollars for a course - it is particularly useful in African countries, which have the biggest number of cases.

"Artemisinin continues to work very well in most of the world, and it will remain highly efficacious," said Pedro Alonso, director of the Global Malaria Programme of the WHO.

Alonso said there is delayed clearance of parasites in only a very small proportion of cases, but "it is not necessarily the problem of artemisinin, it"s more the problems of the partner drugs".

"Hundreds of millions of doses are being given every year, and the drug works very, very well through most of the world. I don"t think this will change in the near or midterm future," he said.

Yang Henglin, a malaria researcher at Yunnan Institute of Parasitic Diseases, in Kunming, Yunnan province, said studies have shown in the past 20 years that the sensitivity to artemisinin has reduced in malaria cases in some parts of Yunnan province along the China-Myanmar border, but more than 95 percent of malaria cases in the area can still be cured.

"I don"t think malaria parasites have developed resistance to artemisinin, despite the discovery that some patients cannot be cured with the recommended ACTs," he said. "All the reported cases whose treatment failed initially have been cured finally through receiving increased doses and undergoing longer courses of treatment."

Yang suggested extending a course of ACT treatment to five days, from three days, and increasing doses of the drug by between 60 and 100 percent for successful treatment.

Despite the existing ACTs, which are still safe and efficient, more research is needed on developing new drugs that are effective to fight malaria, he said.

"The task is urgent, as problems of drug resistance on artemisinin may be emerging," he said. "Prior to artemisinin, all other drugs that were used to treat malaria failed due to drug resistance problems, and we must make preparations in advance to develop new drugs in case."

Alonso said he foresees artemisinin continuing to be the primary drug, although research and development efforts are underway in the pharmaceutical sector for alternative drugs.

"It is good for us to have options, but developing such new drugs is obviously challenging," he said.

Malaria, which infected more than 30 million people annually with a death rate of 1 percent in China in the 1950s, has been wiped out in China in most areas. No locally transmitted cases were reported in 2017, according to the National Health Commission.

The number of malaria deaths worldwide had almost halved from 2000 to 2017, but the number of malaria cases worldwide has seen a rebound in recent years following a general decline - from 214 million in 2015 to 219 million in 2017, according to the WHO.
