Labor Day’s Beginnings

 

Labor DayWashington, D.C. – Labor Day is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It is observed the first Monday in September.

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – A beautiful sunny morning at the William F. Lyell U.S. Army Reserve Center, Nashville, set the tone Saturday as parachute riggers from the 861st Quartermaster Company prepared to jump into Fort Campbell’s Corregidor Drop Zone.

Excitement filled the air as the Soldiers went through their last minute drills.

“Ten minutes!” yelled Staff Sgt. Travis Merryman, with a smile on his face, reflecting the relaxed mood felt by the Soldiers despite the importance and seriousness of the training.

The lighthearted mood continued at the Nashville Airport as the riggers joked around while strapping up their equipment and parachutes under the unrelenting rays of the sun. The clear skies and low winds meant it would be a great day for a jump.

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – In an extensive airborne survey, a NASA-led team has analyzed a previously identified “hot spot” of methane emissions in the Four Corners region of the United States, quantifying both its overall magnitude and the magnitudes of its sources. The study finds that just 10 percent of the individual methane sources are contributing half of the emissions.

Scientists from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Caltech, both in Pasadena, California; the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Boulder, Colorado; and the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, used two JPL airborne spectrometers to identify and measure more than 250 individual sources of methane.
