On Labor Day, most of us do not work. Even the president went to a big picnic.

- Connecting with young professionals
All about Buffalo Niagara 360, a project of the Buffalo Niagara Partnership, designed as a way for young professionals in the Buffalo area to find each other and to link up with business leaders, public officials, non-profits and potential mentors.
And to offer themselves as "reverse mentors." You know. The young whelp who teaches the boss how to use Facebook.
- Bright spots give hope in weak job market
