Isn"t that enough to beckon you to San Diego. A large number of tourists come to San Diego in the month of October. Reasons being pleasant weather, hosts of fascinating events and plenty of fun activities and great places to relax! During Big Boi"s spring 2013 North American tour the rapper will perform 43 concerts over a two month time span. He will not only be performing headlining shows but will also make appearances at the Beale Street festival wristbands, Summer Camp festival wristbands, and at the NXNE Festival.
It is common for hosts to choose a theme based upon the time of year such as children"s clothing for back-to-school and toys for Christmas, or upon the needs of their family. Since the point of the party is to keep costs down, it is important to not go crazy with refreshments or decorations. When having a Swap Party, it is acceptable to do potluck if you want food at it. For some, it is more of a "get in and get out" event wristbands where items are put out for the taking, and as choices are made, people leave with their "new" items. You will find all the Disney Characters in their festive attire for the party (think loud holiday sweaters), as well as many party goers! There will be many more characters out to meet, greet, and take pictures and for autographs. You can expect to see all of the major Disney characters as well as Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, Scrooge McDuck- who is extremely rare during the rest of the year! Going to a football game, baseball game, rugby game, soccer game or hockey game is always fun. If you can"t attend a game in person the next best thing is to hang out and drink your favorite beer at a sport wristbands bar. There are some really upscale bars or neighborhood bars depending upon your style. If you are not much of a spectator why not spend some time at a recreation center or club playing your favorite sport, or get some friends together and set up a softball, basketball, volleyball, a round of golf or a tennis match with a BBQ afterwards. You can place as many raffle boxes out as you would like. Check with your local shops, florist, salons and any where else you may have, to see if you can leave a raffle box there for their customers. One other thing: the early bird gets the worm. The WMS has a history of selling out, and prices go up considerably on festival day, anyhow-so be sure to get your wristbands early. Currently, festival wristbands are available for only $20, with VIP passes available for $75. The wristbands are good for any venue, all day. Even without knowing the specific lineup of locals, $20 to see all of them means you"ll definitely get your money"s worth.

China"s efforts to fight desertification in northern China have made major strides over the past 40 years, but challenges remain, according to an evaluation report by the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

The Three-North Shelter Forest Program, launched in 1978, is aimed at planting trees across more than 400 million hectares in 13 provinces in northern China by 2050.

According to a report released at a news conference in Beijing on Monday by the academy, which was invited by the National Forestry and Grassland Administration to evaluate the program"s achievements as a third party, an accumulated area of 46 million hectares of forest has been planted in the Three-North areas-North, Northeast and Northwest China-over the past 40 years at a total cost of 93.3 billion yuan ($13.5 billion).

Forest coverage in the Three-North areas had reached 13.5 percent as of 2017, up from 5.05 percent in 1978.

The program has started to "curb desertification" since 2000, which is "especially obvious" in key areas such as the Horqin Desert and the Mu Us Desert, according to the report.

Planting helped increase the area of windbreaks by 154 percent over the past 40 years. Meanwhile, the program has helped reduce the area of soil erosion by 67 percent.

The program also helped local farmers increase income. Fruit production from these forests has increased 30 times over the four decades, providing farm jobs to 313 million people, it said.

Under the administration"s plan, China will increase tree coverage by 3.33 million hectares per year to further combat desertification.

But Zhang Yaping, vice-president of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said challenges remain, including a low survival rate of trees and lack of water.

Previous planning failed to take into consideration whether local water resources could support the large-scale planting, and the lack of management after trees were planted also caused a decline in the forest, he said.

The academy found that an average of only 47 percent of the trees survived.

Liu Dongsheng, deputy director of the National Forestry and Grassland Administration, said at a news conference: "What"s been done in the past 40 years are the easy jobs, and what"s left with us are the more thorny problems."

Such problems include growing forest in areas naturally hostile to trees, he said.

"Costs of greening also rise because water resources become scarcer and tree saplings are more expensive," he added.

The academy suggested in the report that efforts should be made to optimize the existing program plan by taking into consideration actual demands and the carrying capacity of water resources.
