Even though Christmas is more than 7 months away, and is one of the furthest things from most Long Islanders" minds, but this cold and dreary weather this week has me thinking of happier times while wearing a sweater...
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.
Speaking of beer, drinks are not exactly dirt cheap at Off Broadway, but they are pretty reasonable for a respected St. Louis music venue. Stag and Pabst Blue Ribbon beers are $3 most nights, nicer beers might be a little more, and mixed drinks are usually closer to $5. Occasionally, they will offer a special, such as dollar PBRs, but it"s not routine.
During this phase, you should decide on the number of participants that you will be comfortable hosting. Are you visualizing a sport wristbands small group of less than people? Or do you see yourself talking to a larger group perhaps in the hundreds?

Trade indexes not individual stocks - Indexes generally have much lower volatility than individual stocks and for this reason, I rarely use this strategy on individual stocks. Using FFIV as a recent example, on one particular day, there was a negative news report and the stock dropped about 20%. While possible, it is incredibly rare that you would see an index fall by this much in a single day, but it occurs more regularly with individual stocks especially tech or small caps stocks. The bid-ask spread is also lower for indexes meaning you are not suffering a liquidity premium.

China"s image is steadily improving on the world stage, with more developed countries recognizing its role in domestic and international affairs, according to a survey published on Friday.
On a scale of 1 to 10, the average approval rating for China"s image in the survey period, which covered 2016 and 2017, was 6.22－up slightly from 6.2 in 2015. Italy"s perception of China rose by 0.5 points to 6.58, while that of Canada and the United Kingdom both rose by 0.4 points, reaching 5.79 and 6.14, respectively.
These three developed countries saw the biggest improvement out of the 22 surveyed nations. More than 11,000 people participated in the survey, which was conducted by the China Foreign Languages Publishing Administration and Kantar Millward Brown, a global market research company.
Developed countries" average approval rating for China has been growing faster than that of developing countries in the past three years, the survey found. The average score from developed countries grew from 5 to 5.6 from 2014 to 2017, while the score from developing countries rose from 6.7 to 6.9 during the same period.
Survey participants ages 18 to 35 have the most positive views on China"s role in domestic and international affairs. Those in this age group are also the group most likely to visit or study in China in the near future, the survey found.
"China"s overall global image is gradually improving under the leadership of President Xi Jinping," said Wang Gangyi, the deputy director of the China Foreign Languages Publishing Administration.
Yu Yunquan, the deputy director at the administration"s Center for International Communication Studies, said China continues to be a driver of global economic growth, adding that around 33 percent of those interviewed said they expected China to become the world"s largest economy－a 9 percentage points jump from 2015.
In addition, high-speed trains, manned space mission technologies and supercomputers have become China"s top three most recognizable technologies in the world, the survey found.
"This shows that Chinese technologies are becoming a new calling card for China alongside Chinese cuisine, martial arts and traditional medicine," Yu said.
The survey also noted reoccurring issues. For example, more than 60 percent of those surveyed still worried about the quality of Chinese products－a figure that has not changed in the past five years.
Cheng Manli, the president of the National Institute of Strategic Communication at Peking University, said product quality is extremely important because it directly affects people"s lives and their opinion of a country"s production and honesty.
