Pattyfest: A West Virginia Old-Time Music Festival

Billy Draws Two consists of Billy Horn 25 (Niagara Falls, N.Y.) , lead vocals, guitar, harmonica and songwriter, Doug Krell, 26, (Youngstown, N.Y.), rhythm guitar, backing vocals and bass, Rosie Lorentti, 20, (Lewiston, N.Y.), bass and backing vocals and piano and Chris McClellen, 23, (Buffalo, N.Y.), drums. No, it is actually a piece of Berkshire dialect, referring to a young colt. Since colt means young anyway, the nobby bit seems a bit superfluous, but of course not all dialect has to make sense. The rhyme refers to going round the town of Woodstock, now known for the festival wristbands which started in the 60s, which is of course in neighbouring Oxfordshire. District 9: Rated R for bloody violence and pervasive language. 111 mins. Refugee aliens, the last of their kind, landed on Earth 30 years ago. Contained in South Africa"s District 9, the world fought about what to do with them. They have been turned over to Multi-National United, a corporation seeking to profit from learning how the alien"s weaponry works without regard for their well-being. Tension mounts when an MNU employee develops a virus that mutates his DNA. Now the most hunted and valuable man on the planet as his molecular structure may hold the secret MNU seeks, he must hide in District 9. Once your date has come to draw for the raffle, collect the boxes and take them home, do the drawing and contact the winner. Now that your drawing is over you have possibly hundreds of new leads for not only customers but recruits. For all of those who stated they would like more information on becoming a representative or getting their products at a discount, this is your opportunity to contact them and tell them all about the AVON opportunity. You may even plan to set up a time for all of those interested to get together with you for a seminar event wristbands where you can go over everything with everyone at the same time, answering questions, and giving ideas! Before making plans, decide whether you want to spend the weekend working, playing or relaxing. Do you plan to entertain educate or gather together sport wristbands with family and friends? As the event ended President Bush wished them luck, turned and left the room. As a rather close observer of these events, Mr. Bush"s ending tone was clearly one of regret. Surely there was some regret for the negative things that have happened, but the regret to which I refer was the result of the tone of the press. WHAT IS ON THE MENU? When it comes to menu planning I usually go with things that I can prepare ahead of time. This I learned the hard way. It is much easier to take something out of the freezer and throw it in the oven, so prepare ahead of time. I have had so many events where I was exhausted by the time guests arrived that I could not even eat the food that I had worked on all day. Now I plan it so that I have a shower and a nap before the first guest arrives at my house. It is not that hard with planning!

BEIJING - Nearly 50 years have passed since people first stood on the moon. Can we return? How will radiation on the moon affect astronauts? How much water is there? Where did the water come from?

To better understand the lunar environment and prepare for a human return to the moon, the Chang"e-4 probe, which has just made the first-ever soft landing on the far side of the moon, carries payloads jointly developed by Chinese, German and Swedish scientists to conduct research.

"Our goal is to measure particle radiation on the lunar surface and the risk to people and equipment," said Zhang Shenyi, a researcher with the National Space Science Center (NSSC) under the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Zhang cooperated with German scientists in developing the first ever instrument to measure neutron radiation on the moon.

Unlike earth, the moon has no magnetic field and atmosphere to protect it from cosmic particles, which could harm astronauts and spacecraft.

"Before a crewed mission to the moon, our detection could help evaluate the harm of radiation, and pave the way for a return and future exploration," said Zhang.

Professor Robert Wimmer-Schweingruber, of the Institute of Experimental and Applied Physics of Kiel University, Germany, said preparing for future human exploration of the moon is an excellent idea.

"If astronauts want to go on to the moon, there are a lot of risks, such as rockets, landing and surviving on the moon. But if everything is okay and the astronauts come back to earth, the radiation on the moon is the only danger that remains in their body. So we need to understand that," said Wimmer-Schweingruber.

The instrument also measures thermal neutrons, which allows scientists to study the subsurface water on the moon.

During the 1960s and 1970s, the United States and the Soviet Union launched many manned and unmanned missions to the moon. After a lull, a new round of exploration was triggered in the 1990s when scientists found there might be water on the moon.

Many scientists believe frozen water might be in areas never exposed to sunlight in the craters of the moon"s polar regions. But how much water is there? And is there water in the South Pole-Aitken Basin where Chang"e-4 landed?

"The measurement of neutrons is one of the important indicators to judge whether there is a water resource in the landing area," said Zhang.

The instrument will also detect the content of iron oxide in the lunar soil and study the particle acceleration mechanism of solar storms between the sun and the earth, he said.

Zhang Aibing, also a researcher with the NSSC, cooperated with Swedish scientists in developing an instrument on the Chang"e-4 rover to measure neutral atoms to study the interaction between the solar wind and the lunar surface.

"This is the first measurement of neutral atoms on the lunar surface. With the rover, we can study the interaction between the solar wind and the lunar surface in different terrains," said Zhang.

"Some scientists believe that hydrogen ions in the solar wind may combine with oxygen on the lunar surface to form water. This is a subject we want to study through our measurement," Zhang said.

Chinese scientists are also developing such kind of instrument that could be used to explore Mars, he said.

Johan Koehler, head of Solar System Science and Space Situational Awareness, Swedish National Space Agency, said the exploration of the far side of the moon is a great achievement by China. "We are very happy to be a part of it.

"The solar wind interacts with the lunar surface, and spreads particles around. These particles form the extremely thin atmosphere-like gases environment of the moon surface. And this is the environment that we know very, very little about. The research is very important to extend humanity"s knowledge of the solar system," said Koehler.

"There is a theory that water on the surface of the moon is formed by the interaction of the solar wind with the surface regolith. So this is something that the Swedish scientists together with the Chinese scientists want to answer."
