If you want to splurge on your date night why not give one of the dinner cruise lines a call. Most dinner cruises are not crowded and give great sex appeal as you drift off away from a brightly lit city. Often they have wonderful bands and dancing goes on for three hours. Things are often even worse if you"re staying on site at a festival wristbands. The temporary toilets that are provided probably start the festival looking nice and clean. Unfortunately, by the time that you get to use them, it"s very unlikely that they"ll be in such good condition.

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. Killer Mike will open all headlining concerts.

Foreign investment continues to flood into Dalian this year, proving the port city in Liaoning province is one of the most attractive investment destinations in Northeast China.

According to the Dalian bureau of foreign trade and economic cooperation, more than 70 foreign-funded enterprises had been established in the city this year as of the end of May, with pledged investment amounting to $12.5 billion. The total amount invested in Dalian so far this year totaled $1.58 billion by May, increasing 4.39 percent from the same period of last year.

Renowned global information technology giant Intel is one of the biggest sources of investment, with newly added funding of $479 million in place to expand the capacity of its Dalian plant.

The newly added fund is part of its committed investment of $5.5 billion, announced in October last year, and will be used to upgrade its nonvolatile memory chip production facilities at its existing Dalian plant.

Non-volatile memory, or non-volatile storage, is a type of computer memory that can retrieve stored information even after having been turned off and back on.

Dalian is located at the southernmost end of the Liaodong Peninsula, at the conjunction of the Yellow Sea in the east and Bohai Bay in the west. It neighbors such countries as Japan, the Republic of Korea, the Democratic People"s Republic of Korea and Russia.

With a land area of 13,000 square kilometers and a population of 6.9 million, the city is one of the shipping hubs in Northeast Asia and one of the most favored foreign investment destinations in Northeast China.

According to Liu Zhiguo, deputy chief of the Dalian bureau of foreign trade and economic cooperation, the city has approved about 18,000 foreign-invested enterprises in the past 30 years, with accumulated investment totaling $105.86 billion.

He said more than 4,600 foreign-invested enterprises are currently operational in Dalian, including those funded by renowned multinational companies such as British Telecom, Volkswagen, Total and Canon.

By the end of 2016, there were 262 projects funded by 113 companies on the Fortune Global 500 list.
