Sell the spreads as far away from the current price as possible - In this way the stock will have to move by a large amount in a short period of time for you to suffer large losses.

You can quickly add any file or sport wristbands folder to the Start menu by dragging it to Start button waiting for the Start pop-ups and finally falls it at the top of the menu. We can all picture the scene - arriving at a camp site to find that the toilet facilities look like something out of a horror film. Disgusting and clearly not to the standards of hygiene that we would set for ourselves, there is little that could be less appealing.

Now, click-wheel and change the number in the vertical section of the scroll to adjust the scrolling speed. If you prefer a more theatrical Murder Mystery or don"t want to host a game at your home, you will need to find a venue. Finding a place is really not difficult. My home group started out performing Mysteries at a local Historic Mansion, moved to a Community Center and finally found a home at Banquet Facility. Many popular Murder Mysteries are based in a Dinner Theater setting. The idea of a dinner and show is very appealing to audiences. The Cadieux Cafe played a role in the band"s early years as a part of the venue"s Mussel Beach festival wristbands in 2001. They have come a long way since and suffered some hardship and line-up changes along the way. In late 2001, bass player DeNardo experienced a serious stroke which left his right arm paralyzed. After a great deal of local outreach to fund his physical rehabilitation and an ingenious solution to keep him up front with the band, he now performs his bass-lines on a keyboard system. He"s back in fine form. Summary: Although the event information is not yet updated on the Pepsi Center website, it is released on Green Day"s website that the special guest/supporting artist will be Franz Ferdinand. This is a large venue, so they may be expecting tickets to sell out quickly. True to it"s name, the bar is a few hundred feet west of South Broadway Street. Crime can be thick in this part of St. Louis, so be observant and don"t flash wads of cash to random dudes hangin" out in alleys. My first introduction to the venue was when a friend informed me she had been robbed walking from her car into the bar. Her sob story had a positive twist though, because the bartenders at Off Broadway fed her free drinks all night!

SHENYANG - Families across China prepared glutinous rice balls to celebrate Lantern Festival, known as Yuanxiao in Chinese, the last day of the two-week Chinese Lunar New Year celebrations.

Lantern Festival fell on Friday, the 15th day of the first month of the Chinese lunar calendar, when a full moon appears. The traditional treat, made of glutinous rice flour with a variety of sweet fillings, resemble a miniature full moon.

While glutinous rice balls are eaten all over China to celebrate the festival, methods for making them vary, and they have different names.

Yuanxiao, which are named for the festival, come from northern China. They are made by soaking a dry filling in water and rolling it in glutinous rice flour. By repeating the movement of soaking and rolling, the balls gradually grow to a suitable size.

Preparation of the southern style - tangyuan - is different. Tangyuan are made by rolling rice flour dough into a ball and then stuffing it with a filling. The name sounds similar to tuanyuan, which means reunion - one reason the balls have been adopted for family meals as the Spring Festival celebration comes to an end.

While yuanxiao are usually only eaten at Lantern Festival, tangyuan are also served on winter solstice and on Jan 1 in southern China. Both styles can be purchased ready-made in supermarkets all year. In addition to boiling, they can be fried or steamed.

"All the yuanxiao were freshly rolled when I was young and there often was a long queue outside the store. Back then there were few snacks available, and yuanxiao was our most anticipated treat during Spring Festival," said Chen Meishi, from Shenyang, Liaoning province." I can still recall the childhood happiness of the first bite of yuanxiao.

"Now most of the yuanxiao are frozen. Eating yuanxiao is a family tradition for wishing for good luck."

Although the ingredients are the same, the difference in preparation of the two styles gives them a slightly different texture - yuanxiao are more chewy, while tangyuan are softer.

The traditional filling was a combination of black sesame, lard and sugar, but a variety of fillings, such as chocolate and fruit - or even chili, meat and vegetables - have come onto the market in recent years.

"I bought hawthorn-filled rice balls this year. They are appetizing and easy to digest, and therefore suitable for the elderly," said Li Mengnan of Shanghai.
