*Get ready for this winter's galactic light show.
*If you've started shopping for the holidays, check out The New York Times holiday gift guide.

*Dylan wrote earlier this week about manufacturing jobs in America. The second part in the News Hour's series details America's response to globalization with hope. It's worth a watch.
