South By Southwest (Sxsw) Music Festival Austin, Texas One part grimy dive bar and one part hip live music venue, Off Broadway walks a thin line. The St. Louis venue isn"t so ghetto and grungy that it scares off well known out-of-town groups, and it"s not so pristine and sterile that it seems awkward to watch a local garage band play there on a Wednesday. For those who live in or near St. Louis and have developed a taste for punk, indie rock and Stag, Off Broadway may be the best music venue around. JON AUER: I spent a couple of weeks in Minneapolis making a record with a band called The Melismatics who I think are fantastic. Beyond the music, they also inspired me with their work ethic with was superlative. I also just played with a band while I was recently in Singapore called Typewriter who I had a great time with. We played together, some of my songs, some of theirs, kind of a musical cultural exchange at a big festival wristbands there.

There are a lot of reasons we do it. One reason is obvious: publicity. Being active on social media gets our name out there, which gets us more fans. We use it as a promotional tool. But first and foremost, the internet makes bands more accessible to music fans. I wish we were young at this time so that we can connect to the artists we follow. We just feel like it"s the least we can do for our fans that support us. We try to reply to every single fan. It is very rare that we don"t answer a fan.

HEFEI - While preparing meals for the finless porpoises of the Yangtze River, Zhang Bajin carefully picks out a small fish.

"This kind of fish would get stuck in the porpoise"s throat," he said, adding that the porpoises are big eaters, they can eat more than 10 percent of their own body weight in fish every day.

For over 30 years, Zhang has been caring for the critically endangered animals. He sees the porpoises as his own children.

With a slightly curved mouth, the finless porpoise is often called the "smiling angel" of the Yangtze by Chinese. However, the population has been rapidly decreasing over the last three decades due to environmental deterioration. The species now teeters on the brink of extinction with a population of around 1,000 in the main waterway of the Yangtze, according to research conducted in 2012.

Zhang is among a team of 20 people at the Tongling Freshwater Dolphins National Nature Reserve in east China"s Anhui Province. Established in 2000, the reserve enclosed a corner of the Yangtze creating an ideal habitat for the porpoises.

Jiang Wenhua, chief engineer and one of the founders of the reserve, recalled they caught four finless porpoises in the Yangtze in 2001, two males and two females, and brought them in the reserve.

After 17 years, there are now 11 porpoises in the reserve, the youngest born in May this year, he added.
