Shorts: Rated PGfor mild action and some rude humor. A rainbow-colored rock has the power to grant wishes. As the rock changes hands among the children, the world turns upside down as crocodile armies and spaceships begin to appear. Once the adults get involved, things get really out of whack. Starring Jon Cryer, William H. Macy, Leslie Mann and James Spader. 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. The group"s eponymous four-track EP also features Enzo sport wristbands Penizzotto bass and Thommy Price drums the dynamic rhythm section for Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. Movement is essential to optimal health. I like to say, "Motion is Life". It"s not something you do only when you have time, or when you need to lose some weight, or because your cardiologist told you to. It"s part of every single day. Or, it should be. AB: I don"t think we belong to any genre. People just have to event wristbands 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. AB: Well, I can"t speak for Justin, although I probably could. But my influences range from Prince to Depeche Mode. I"m a huge fan of Georgio Moroder, who did a lot of the electronic dance music in the late seventies and eighties. He did the soundtrack to Scarface, a lot of Donna Summer music . . . I really like that instrumental, dance music, but I also really like classical music: Bach, Beethoven, Bosner. 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.

XIAMEN -- A mainland senior official on Taiwan affairs on Sunday highlighted the significance of the mainland"s ties with Kinmen, a county and small island attached to Taiwan but close to the mainland.

Liu Jieyi, head of the Taiwan Work Office of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, made the remarks during an inspection and at a symposium held with a delegation from Kinmen County in the port city of Xiamen in Fujian Province.

Adjoining Xiamen with convenient transportation is a unique regional advantage Kinmen boasts among Taiwanese counties, he said.

By taking the lead in receiving the supply of water, electricity and gas from the coastal regions of Fujian, as well as getting connected with the mainland by bridges, Kinmen could rely on Xiamen to make the most of the vast development space and opportunities of the mainland, according to Liu.

In that sense, Kinmen could take a leap forward and build the county into a new ground for economic development that goes in line with the tide of the times, which would not only do good for the county but also benefit the development of Taiwan as a whole, he continued.
