THIS is the tragic final photo of a festival goer at Burning Man running into the flames before he died from the fire.
About 70,000 people are attending the Burning Man art and music celebration in the Black Rock Desert, about 161 kilometres north of Reno, Nevada.
The nine-day festival culminates with the burning of a towering 40-foot effigy made of wood, a symbol of rebirth, which usually happens the Saturday before the Labor Day holiday. It’s followed by the burning of a temple on Sunday. This year’s festival ends on Monday.
Attendees have tried before to run into the flames while the man is burning and there have been reported injuries from people trying to get a piece of the spectacle as a token and going through the hot coals.

August 03, 2017
The 54th Myanmar Jade and Gems Emporium kicked off yesterday in Nay Pyi Taw, attracting nearly 2,000 local entrepreneurs and 200 overseas businessmen.
At the emporium, which will be held until 11 August, 326 lots of jewellery will be sold at the floor price of 500 euros and above per lot on 5 August through the open tender system. Included in these lots are 78 lots of jewellery by State-joint venture companies, 171 lots exhibited by private companies, 47 lots by jewellery shops, 29 lots by private entrepreneurs, and one lot by a private company. Vice President U Henry Van Thio was among the officials who visited the emporium held at Mani Yadanar Jade Hall yesterday morning, sponsored by Myanmar Jade and Gems Emporium Central Committee, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation.
The 54th edition of the expo, which is organized by Myanmar’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation and the Jade and Gems Emporium Central Committee, was held from August 2-11 in Nay Pyi Taw.
Present at the emporium were Union Ministers Lt-Gen Ye Aung, U Ohn Win, Dr Myo Thein Gyi, U Win Khaing, Union Attorney-General U Tun Tun Oo, Union Auditor-General U Maw Than, Nay Pyi Taw Council Chairman Dr Myo Aung, Hluttaw representatives, departmental heads, Myanmar Gems and Jewellery Entrepreneurs Association Chairman, Vice-Chairman and members, invited guests and responsible officials. Upon arrival at the emporium, Vice-President U Henry Van Thio was told about the background history of the Myanmar Jade and Gems Emporium, its aims and objectives, and restrictions on the exhibitions. The Vice-President was also shown a video depicting the history of the emporium by central committee personnel. He then toured the showrooms and sale depots on exhibit.
However, results from the 2017 Jade and Gems Emporium are 3 per cent lower than last year’s in terms of the amount of cash the event made, says Deal Street Asia.
Myanmar -or Burma- has a +$31 billion jade industry, which is the source of nearly all of the world’s finest greenstone and it’s a magnet for foreign capital, with China being its number one buyer.
As for jade and minerals, there are 20 lots of fine jade works owned by the State, 20 lots of State-owned crude jade, 2,900 lots of crude jade by State-joint ventured companies, 3,545 lots of crude jade owned by the private sector, 16 lots of other mineral crude gems, 25 lots of fine jade works by the private sector, three grand cots decorated with jade, and 32 lots made of other gems, for a total of 6,561 lots on exhibit. Of them, 6,481 lots will be sold at 4,000 euros and above of the floor price, while 80 lots will be sold at 1,000 euros and above of the floor price through the open tender system, from 6 August to 11 August, it has been learnt. The entry fee to the emporium is US$100 or its equivalent in Myanmar currency for a foreigner, Ks60,000 for a local jewellery entrepreneur, Ks60,000 for a company agent, Ks30,000 for a gem or jewellery lot keeper and Ks30,000 for a service-person. Foreign merchants from China, India, Japan, Singapore, Thailand and Australia as well as local merchants competed to buy gems lots through the tender system in the 53rd emporium in June last year.
In 1993, Australia was suffering the worst drought on record. The Club decided to commit all funds raised to support the national drought appeal. As a result, the Rural Aid Appeal was initiated. The Appeal annually raises funds for a major charity each year through the sale of compilation CDs and a range of specially designed merchandise. Over the years, Rural Aid beneficiaries have included Diabetes Australia, the Royal Flying Doctor Service, Leukaemia Foundation, Youth Suicide Prevention, VISE (Volunteers for Isolated Students Education), Transplant Australia and the Melanoma Foundation and recently, isolated communities suffering the long-term effects of drought.
The event has grown each year, with all profits distributed among worthy charities, both locally and nationally. An ever-growing number of community groups are also involved in the staging of the event, and for most, it is their major fund raiser for the year. There is a real sense of community ownership in the Muster with now more than 50 local community groups involved in the event’s success.
Since its inception, the Muster has raised more than $14,000,000 dollars for charities Australia-wide.
