So you would like to host a murder mystery event but really don"t know where to start. Here are some basic tips and ideas to get you started and point you in the right direction.
According to a federal court lawsuit this Tuesday, Taylor Swift was sued after a concert back in August 2012 at the Capital Hoedown festival wristbands. After the festival show was canceled, the "Never Ever Getting Back Together" singer reportedly kept her major paycheck of $2.5M. The lawsuit adds that the blonde starlet failed to reschedule her concert appearance as well, leading Taylor Swift to breach her contract in that regard as well.
Next, figure out how you are going to do ticket sales. The venue may have a box office and a ticketing system already in place, but most don"t. There are several websites that are made just for handling online ticket sales for indie concerts, or you may want to contact a company that specializes in event wristbands. You can even do a combination of both. Whichever method you choose, you need to keep careful track of tickets sales so you don"t exceed capacity at the venue. Once you"ve got these details nailed down you can focus on marketing and putting on your best show ever.

AB: I don"t think we belong to any genre. People just have to sport 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.
This is about the big picture of creating a healthy, happy lifestyle here. It"s not always going to look exactly the way we think it should. As long as it"s healthy overall, then cool it with the stress and guilt. That kind of thinking will create its own negative health consequences.
Summary: There is no natural, outdoor amphitheatre quite like Red Rocks. Monolith will signal the end of summer, for some of us, and what better place to throw a final "farewell summer" party than Red Rocks! With a performance roster of 40 artists and bands, and it has all summer to grow, I"m sure it will be one carousing good time. Check out the VIP ticket package, it"s got some good values and is actually fairly reasonable in price.
GUANGZHOU -- Chinese scientists are taking a close look at cockroaches to explore their potential in medical treatment.
The research is led by Li Sheng, director of the Institute of Insect Science and Technology at South China Normal University in Guangzhou city.
Based on previous studies on the German cockroach by foreign researchers, Li"s team has been focusing on the genetic code of the American cockroach.
According to Li, a cockroach has as many as 522 taste receptors, 329 of which have evolved into bitter receptors that respond to poisonous foods.
"They eat almost everything. They can do self-detoxification if they eat the wrong food," Li explained. "Even if it is beheaded, its body can still move for five or six days. If you cut its legs or antennae off, they will recover in just a few days and look almost the same as before."
He suggested that the factor in the body of cockroaches that helps them heal wounds and regenerate tissue might also be effective in repairing wounds to the human body.
The team"s research paper, "The genomic and functional landscapes of developmental plasticity in the American cockroach," was published online in Nature Communications on March 21.
Cockroaches are an ingredient in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Extracts of active ingredients from cockroaches have also been used in modern Chinese clinics for more than 30 years, mainly to treat diseases such as gastric and oral ulcers, according to Li.
Li said his team"s research suggests possibilities for wider medical use of the American cockroach.
"The extracts could even be used to make beauty masks and treat hair loss in the future," He said.
