Of all the holidays we celebrate, Labor Day Weekend is one leading killer of people off-duty recreational mishaps. Water sports, including swimming and boating, falls and alcohol are the biggest problems, and no wonder: Labor Day Weekend is the last chance for many of us to get to the beach, go fishing and party hearty before summer ends.
So, we should pay much more attention to safety when we recreate at Labor Day Weekend.
We’ve collected some safety tips and made some PowerPoint presentations and some video slideshows to share with you. The following is Part A:

Hollywood was put to the sartorial test with Sunday night’s Emmy Awards red carpet.
A late-summer sunset with vibrant purple, red and blue gowns dominated the horizon at the 62nd Emmy Awards in Los Angeles. One-shoulder silhouettes, updos and bold jewelry also were big trends.
We’ve made a PowerPoint presentation and a video slideshow with the collected photos of 2010 Emmy Awards Fashion.
Take a look at who wore what and tell us in comments who was best-dressed and who needs to try harder next year.
The iPad is a tablet computer designed and developed by Apple. It is particularly marketed as a platform for audio and visual media such as books, periodicals, movies, music, and games, as well as web content. At about 700 grams (25 ounces), its size and weight are between those of most contemporary smartphones and laptop computers. Apple released the iPad in April 2010, and sold 3 million of the devices in 80 days.
The iPad runs the same operating system as the earlier iPod Touch and iPhone, albeit a slightly older version. (The versions are to be synchronized in September 2010.) It can run its own applications as well as ones developed for the iPhone. Without modification, it will only run programs approved by Apple and distributed via its online store.
Like iPhone and iPod Touch, the iPad is controlled by a multitouch display sensitive to up to eleven fingers — a break from most previous tablet computers, which used a pressure-triggered stylus. The iPad uses Wi-Fi or a 3G mobile data connection to browse the Internet, load and stream media, and install software. The device is managed and synced by iTunes on a personal computer via USB cable.
Media reaction to the device has generally been neutral or positive, with more positive reaction after the device was launched.
We’ve collected some funny pictures of the larger version of Apple’s iPod Touch–iPad.
