Known as a modern art for only 20 years, sand sculpting is a popular and recreational art capable of drawing widespread attention from the public. Sand sculptures can create new tourist programmes wherever they go, bringing in considerable commercial profits. From this point of view, the art is the result of the perfect combination of modern art and modern commerce and is closely linked with tourism. For the last 20 years, this symbiosis has greatly promoted the development of sand sculptures around the world.Sand sculptures can now be found in more than 100 countries and regions, especially in popular coastal cities. Sand sculptures have become one of the most popular itineraries during sea visits. Meanwhile, the art has also spread to the inland cities.
Over the past few years, the art has aroused widespread interest in Asia -- with Japan, Singapore and China as hosts to various sand sculpture contests. With the launch of the International Colored Sand Sculpture Festival in Yunnan Province , China, the art is also becoming richer in content. Instant-Disintegrating Art
Sand and seawater are the basic materials for sand sculptures, which are molded into various patterns by digging, carving and hollowing out sand. Sand sculptures contain no chemical adhesives. Once a piece of the sculpture is completed, a special glue-water solution is sprayed over the surface to set the sculpture. Normally, the sculpture can be preserved for several months. Since it is not easy to preserve sand sculptures, which disintegrate over a period of time, the art form is also known as "instant-disintegrating art". Sand sculpting is also a kind of land art that blends with nature and without emitting any pollutants. Sand sculptures, unlike most traditional sculptures, are admired for their large scale.
Sand sculpting is also a marginal art -- an amalgamation of the elements of sculpting, painting, construction and outdoor recreation. Requiring no professional training, the art can be taken up by anyone. Sand sculpting is known as a fashionable, healthy and exciting programme for leisure and entertainment purposes.

An Oscar party is great for teens or adults – it’s easy and absolutely the most glam you can get! Print up invites with the famous gold statuette on it and write with a gold or silver marker on them. Make sure the dress code is formal, in fact, make it black tie. Guests can even dress up as their favourite actors or actresses if they wish. Dress in your best clothes and wear plenty of big crystal earrings and bracelets or a tux. If you can get a large cut out of the Oscar statue, put that in the doorway or the foyer.
Pull out the red carpet and let your guests make a splashy entrance to your Oscar party. Give a little nephew or neighbor a few dollars and a disposable camera to take paparazzi shots of your guests as they walk up the red carpet. Food should be very classy – platters of hors d’oeuvres and plenty of wine, or for the teenagers, cider or sodas in disposable wine goblets. You don’t have to do much with the décor, a lot of well-dressed people are enough to impress any guest!
Why not host an Oscar party for your next special occasion? The theme is fairly easy to adapt to your guests and setting, and the night will no doubt be one to remember.

Bryant Gumbel has announced that he would not return to the NFL Network as play by play announcer for the pre-season and eight game regular season package of NFL games. This statement has been confirmed by the NFL Network as well.
Sources further added that Gumbel on air game calling following his first season has resulted in NFL football Network’s displeasure. They were dissatisfied but did not take action prior to last season. To date, Gumbel has never had play by play announcing experience before his stint at NFL Network.
NFL Network president and CEO Steve Bornstein was neutral about the whole drama, saying that “We appreciate everything Bryant did in helping us launch our NFL Network game telecasts. Bryant helped create an interest in our first foray into televising NFL regular season games.”
However, Gumbel’s partner, Cris Collinworth, gets to keep his job as color commentator. The latest update is that NFL Network is voraciously seeking Gumbel’s replacement. Gumbel is also host of HBO Channel’s Real Sports segment.
