Since 1995 the House of Blues and Jazz has being a second living room for those who are hungry for quality live music and a home for blues and jazz musicians from all over the world. In fact, the first blues and jazz bar in new Shanghai. The present Bund location of House of Blues and Jazz is the fourth incarnation of this mainstay of the Shanghai live music scene, however with an increased capacity and an added Dining room is the best yet. It still remains a place to relax with a drink, perhaps a fine cigar, chat with Mr Lin Dongfu while listening to some of the best blues and jazz Shanghai offers.

Understanding Children with autism
Autism is a disability that is still not much known to the society.
Unlike down syndrome, autism does not affect a patient's facial feature, therefore is not distinguishable by looks, but these special children lack of communication and social skills.Autistic Children are also named "Children of the stars" as they live in their own universe.
Autism is a lifelong disease with some serious case which the patient is unable to take care of themselves.But if aided with early intervention these children may return to society.
Date? 6/2/2013 Sunday
