The Bath Music Festival Detroit has the dubious distinction of being one of the biggest talent pools of musicians who are famous elsewhere. And while this is shame, it also gives fans the ability to see greats like The Muggs in favorite small venues and hometown bars across the area. Gaining notoriety in Europe as one of the fresh bands fronting Detroit"s new generation of Dodge muscle cars, Danny Methric, Tony DeNardo and Todd Glass keep a low-key lifestyle in their home city.

Every year groups of musicians band together to tour the states. After the success of the CMA Country festival wristbands in 2009, the summer of 2010 burst open with more energy and even more diverse acts. Nearly every major city hosted a tour and not a single one lacked the full octane buzz that Country offers. Since "91 the Chicago Country festival wristbands at Soldier Field has been the ripest environment for newcomers to the genre. Chicago mayor Richard Daley confessed he had a weak spot for the slide guitar with the moaning pitch of steel on steel. The first year of the festival, 42,000 fans supported his love and ever since, it has been one of the biggest summer events for the genre. You 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. In Cleveland avant-garage legends Pere Ubu performed their influential post-punk watershed album The Modern Dance sport wristbands in its entirety for a live audience at the Beachland Ballroom this year helping the North Collinwood club celebrate its year anniversary. If wristbands can"t be tamperproof, at least they can be tamper-evident. If the bad guys try to cheat, your security people can spot counterfeit bands or bands that have been taken off a legitimate entry and passed to someone on the outside. Many masks are based on the event wristbands that you are going to. You may want to make a mask that is much more flamboyant for Mardi Gras or are you may want an elegant mask for that formal event. You need to figure out some of the colors and basic themes that you want to use. Some of the things that you may need to create your masterpiece is some kind of craft glue, feathers, sequins, glitter, gemstones, and anything else that you might need. You may want to purchase sticks or dow rods to complete your mask. Do not forget you will need some kind of elastic or ribbon to be able to wear the mask. To be honest sometimes I"ve had an idea in mind and from start to finish it"s taken me only hours. Then there are those times when I"m doing something that is really emotional, personal, something that requires my full attention... that can take anywhere from days to a month to complete. So far, a month is the longest amount of time I"ve EVER worked on one piece of art... I"m pretty sure if I did not have a deadline in order to travel to Boston, MA it would have taken me even longer minus the very late nights. As my kids get older and don"t require my attention as much I hope to be able to focus my energy on taking my time. It"s great cheap therapy. These events are fun and exciting. I personally will be going to Delta Fair and Music Festival so that I can take my daughter to enjoy all of the rides and see all of the vendors, I am a sucker for good crafts and end up spending a bundle. On that note, I hope this will guide you in some ideas for the weekend. Labor Day signifies the end of summer and there is no need to let it go to waste.

Seven people involved in a high-profile telecom fraud case that led to the death of a university candidate stood trial at a court in Shandong province on Tuesday.

The defendants pleaded guilty at the province"s Linyi Intermediate People"s Court to cheating others out of money by posing as officers of educational, financial and real estate institutions in telephone calls made between November 2015 and August 2016.

One of the defendants, Chen Wenhui, also confessed to buying personal information online.

"They rented rooms in several regions in the country, such as Haikou, Hainan province, and Jiujiang, Jiangxi province, and made them into bases for fraud. Their major targets for their swindles were college-bound students," said Linyi prosecutors.

The stolen money amounted to over 560,000 yuan ($82,200) from more than 23,000 calls made, the prosecutors said.

One of the victims, Xu Yuyu, an 18-year-old student in Linyi, was called on Aug 19. She had applied for financial aid from a local educational authority two days before she received the phone call.

"In the call, I told Xu I was an educational authority officer and would provide her with about 2,600 yuan in student aid. I asked her to contact the local financial authority to find out how to receive the aid," Zheng Xiancong, 27, one of the defendants, said in court.

Xu was given a number to call that connected her to Chen. Chen, 22, from Fujian province, said he asked Xu to transfer 9,900 yuan in tuition fees into a bank account, adding the student aid would appear in her student account.

Chen also confirmed that he had obtained the personal information of Xu and others through QQ, an instant messaging tool. He added he bought more than 10,000 pieces of such information.

After discovering the money was stolen, Xu, with her father, reported the theft to police on that same evening, and on her way back home, she died of cardiac arrest, officials said. Three forensic expert witnesses said during the trial that Xu"s death was linked to the great anxiety caused by the telecom fraud.

The prosecutors said Chen was the organizer of the group of fraudsters and had committed the crimes of fraud and infringement of personal information under Chinese Criminal Law. The other six had committed the crime of fraud.

Chen"s lawyer said Chen took the initiative to go to police after learning about Xu"s death from media reports, but prosecutors said Chen"s confession could not be considered legally valid because it was not clear.

Chen, who wept in court, said: "I felt guilty for Xu"s death. I wanted to get some money through telecom fraud at first, but I never thought my behavior brought such great pain to other families."

Xu"s father said he hopes the court will uphold justice and he is looking forward to a fair result.

The court said it will announce verdicts at a later date.
