Come To Alabama For A Festival In The Spring It"s hard to imagine a more contentious relationship than that between President Bush and the Press Corps. Will that animus the press displayed toward President Bush be carried over to our new Chief Executive? 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. KEN STRINGFELLOW I have to say I"m more turned on by the sun or peeling paint on sport wristbands an old tractor or a beautiful smile than most bands...I try and look at life as a whole for my inspiration and work from there. 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.

People just have to label everything-you know, we"ve gotten "goth"-what is "goth"? I"m not really sure "goth" is even a musical genre. I think it might just be a certain style. Anyway, I think our sound has changed a lot over time, but if I had to describe it, I like to call it "dark and dancy"-derived from a lot of late seventies dance stuff. Summary: There is no natural, outdoor amphitheatre quite like Red Rocks. Monolith will signal the end of summer, for some of us, and what better place to throw a final "farewell summer" party than Red Rocks!

Persistence sees young musician land a place at prestigious UK school

Wang Zi"an, an 18-year-old violist who is visually impaired, is busy making language, living and academic preparations to study at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire in the United Kingdom.

The enrollment comes as a reward for Wang"s years of persistent pursuit of music as a profession with the support of his family.

"I was nervous and my hand was sweating holding my guide stick as I was preparing for a show," said Wang, recalling the moments before the confirmation of his acceptance on Dec 12.

"When the good news arrived, I became excited," he added. "Then I calmed down and started to think about what I needed to do to integrate into life there."

Wang, who likes TV and computer games, practices the viola three to four hours a day, memorizing professional terms and history of Western music in English. He also practices musical arrangements on his computer and doing household chores.

"I"m a bit afraid. It"s a challenge in a foreign place. I would like to go as early as possible to experience it, though," he said.

Wang lost his eyesight after being born prematurely. When he was 4 years old, his musical ability was suddenly revealed when he played the melody of a song on an electric piano.

Armed with a new piano, Wang embarked on his long musical journey. After primary school, he applied to an affiliated middle school of a conservatory in Guangzhou, Guangdong province, but failed to get in.

However, Hou Donglei, a viola teacher at the conservatory, offered to teach him when he was 13 after hearing Wang"s piano performance in the entrance test.

Wang has had to overcome a lot of difficulties. In the beginning, he could not keep the bow even, so his parents placed four cotton swabs near the bridge of the instrument to help him feel the angles.

The musician is good at memorizing scores but has yet to address the issue of reading those not available in Braille. And his body movements during performances are not as expressive as they could be.

He is, however, determined to follow a professional path and applied for a number of foreign music schools upon graduating from middle school.

"Wang is very talented. He has exceptional hearing, a special aptitude for the viola and a much better memory than many others," said Hou, director of the orchestral instruments department of the music school attached to Xinghai Conservatory of Music.

"In class, I teach him the notes, fingering and bowing, and analyze composition. He has an edge over his classmates. He can largely manage a piece after four to five sessions."

Wang"s enrollment at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, which is a faculty of Birmingham City University, is not based on compassion, said Liu Fei from the China office of the conservatory, which has offered Wang a half scholarship.

"He participated in the audition like other applicants across the country, without any change in the content and requirement in the test. His performance completely met our standards and exceeded the expectations privately set in our hearts," Liu said.

The boy"s father, Wang Xiaohong, said he plans to accompany his son to the UK for three months and then leave him to stand on his own two feet.

Determined to let his son follow a path different from those traditionally open to a visually impaired person, Wang"s father has devoted his time, energy, money and enthusiasm to his son"s development.

"If the teacher hears him play 10 or 20 times in class, I hear him play hundreds or thousands of times at home. I know it when he doesn"t do well," Wang Xiaohong said.

Over the years, he said he has not wavered in his support.

"Many parents cannot walk out of the darkness (of having such a child). Many fathers cannot bear the pressure and run away. I want to fulfill my commitment, so I will be his eyes," he said.
