JON AUER: All you can really hope to do in life it to keep evolving, growing. I"m not religious at all - let me be clear about that - but I kind of like the serenity prayer....y"know, the bits about changing what you can, letting go of what you can"t, and the wisdom to know the difference. Seems like a good philosophy even in a digital age.
The Black Weirdo Tour began in Austin, Texas where the group performed for the city"s annual, South By South West festival wristbands. Next on the list was a trip to California where the duo performed two shows. Now they"re here in Toronto for a 3 day performance set.

For a chance to participate in some good-old-fashioned fun, join the revelry at the Frontier Days Festival. Visitors can enjoy seeing the period clothing and eating period food. The festival also features a carnival, children"s games, and some very unique contests. No Frontier Day festival would be complete without a greased pig catch and nail-driving contest. There will also be several quilts for view as well as a parade sport wristbands on Saturday.
Sound daunting? It"s really not. I have good news and great news for you. The good news is that in your day to day life there are many times when you "perform". By performing I"m talking about subtle, but significant behaviors - like changing the tone of your voice; using physical gestures; being verbally descriptive, etc. My experience is that people naturally do this when they are speaking about a topic they feel some emotional connection to. However, when people get up in front of an audience, they often suppress this natural performing ability, mainly because of fear.
One other thing: the early bird gets the worm. The WMS has a history of selling out, and prices go up considerably on festival day, anyhow-so be sure to get your wristbands early. Currently, festival wristbands are available for only $20, with VIP passes available for $75. The wristbands are good for any venue, all day. Even without knowing the specific lineup of locals, $20 to see all of them means you"ll definitely get your money"s worth.
China will set up an international development cooperation agency, according to the plan on reforming institutions of the State Council unveiled on Tuesday.
The agency will take over the foreign assistance duties of the ministries of commerce and foreign affairs, State Councilor Wang Yong said as he delivered the reform plan at a plenary meeting of the 13th National People"s Congress.
The agency will be directly under the State Council.
The reform plan, which proposes the formation of eight agencies including the international development cooperation agency, is subject to the newly formed State Council"s approval, Xinhua reported.
The agency will be in charge of duties such as drafting strategic guidelines, planning and foreign aid policies, according to the plan.
It will do overall planning and coordinating on major foreign aid issues, offer advice and advance the country"s reforms in matters involving foreign aid. It also will draft foreign aid plans, identify major programs and supervise and evaluate implementation of such programs.
The agency is intended to give full play to the role of foreign aid as a key instrument of China"s diplomacy as a major country, the reform plan says.
Such a move will enhance strategic planning and overall coordination of foreign aid, boost the unified management of foreign assistance missions and reform and optimize the country"s methods of offering foreign aid, it says.
The move will also better serve the country"s overall diplomatic structure and the efforts to jointly build the Belt and Road, the plan says.
Once determined, execution of foreign aid missions will still be undertaken by the departments concerned, according to the plan.
Governmental institutions currently working on foreign aid include the Department of Foreign Assistance under the Ministry of Commerce.
