Labor Day 2012

  • What is  Labor Day--Introduction of labor day

Labor Day 2012
Labor Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the first Monday in September (September 3 in 2012) that celebrates the economic and social contributions of workers.
  • Labor Day Celebration--Labor Day Parade 

Labor Day 2012
The form for the celebration of Labor Day was outlined in the first proposal of the holiday: A street parade to exhibit to the public "the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations",followed by a festival for the workers and their families. This became the pattern for Labor Day celebrations. Speeches by prominent men and women were introduced later, as more emphasis was placed upon the civil significance of the holiday. Still later, by a resolution of the American Federation of Labor convention of 1909, the Sunday preceding Labor Day was adopted as Labor Sunday and dedicated to the spiritual and educational aspects of the labor movement.
The holiday is often regarded as a day of rest and parties. Speeches or political demonstrations are more low-key than May 1 Labor Day celebrations in most countries, although events held by labor organizations often feature political themes and appearances by candidates for office, especially in election years.[6] Forms of celebration include picnics, barbecues, fireworks displays, water sports, and public art events. Families with school-age children take it as the last chance to travel before the end of summer recess. Similarly, some teenagers and young adults view it as the last weekend for parties before returning to school, although school starting times now vary.
  • End of summer of Labor Day

Labor Day has come to be celebrated by most Americans as the symbolic end of the summer. In high society, Labor Day is (or was) considered the last day of the year when it is fashionable for women to wear white.
In U.S. sports, Labor Day marks the beginning of the NFL and college football seasons. NCAA teams usually play their first games the week before Labor Day, with the NFL traditionally playing their first game the Thursday following Labor Day. The Southern 500 NASCAR auto race was held that day from 1950 to 1983 in Darlington, South Carolina. At Indianapolis Raceway Park, the National Hot Rod Association hold their finals to the U.S. Nationals drag race.
In the U.S. most school districts that started summer vacation in early June will resume school the day after this day (while schools that had summer vacation begin near Memorial Day will have already been in session since late August).
  • History of Labor Day

Labor Day 2012
Recent research indicates that, in 1882, Matthew Maguire, a machinist, first proposed the holiday while serving as secretary of the CLU (Central Labor Union) of New York.Others argue that it was first proposed by Peter J. McGuire of the American Federation of Labor in May 1882, after witnessing the annual labor festival held in Toronto, Canada.
Oregon was the first state to make it a holiday in 1887. By the time it became a federal holiday in 1894, thirty states officially celebrated Labor Day.Following the deaths of a number of workers at the hands of the U.S. military and U.S. Marshals during the Pullman Strike, President Grover Cleveland reconciled with the labor movement. Fearing further conflict, legislation making Labor Day a national holiday was rushed through Congress unanimously and signed into law a mere six days after the end of the strike.The September date originally chosen by the CLU of New York and observed by many of the nation's trade unions for the past several years was selected rather than the more widespread International Workers' Day because Cleveland was concerned that observance of the latter would be associated with the nascent Communist, Syndicalist and Anarchist movements that, though distinct from one another, had rallied to commemorate the Haymarket Affair in International Workers' Day. All U.S. states, the District of Columbia, and the territories have made it a statutory holiday.

BMW Z4 Roadster

BMW Z4 Roadster -Review,Technical Specifications and Wonderful Features and Official Released Photos


The exterior of the BMW Z4 Roadster.

BMW Z4 Roadster
A roadster designed the way only BMW can: the classic proportions of the stretched bonnet and short overhangs are complimented by the low seats near to the rear axle to grant the driver a perfect feel for the road. The modern shape, an interplay of striking contours and soft mergers, fully captures the character of this vehicle from its characteristic kidney grille to the powerful wheelarches at the rear. However, it's the way this roadster effortlessly negotiates straights and bends that makes it truly like no other.

A perfect fit that leaves plenty of room for exploration. Like a well-tailored suit, the BMW Z4 Roadster is expertly customised to meet the needs of the driver. From the asymmetrical centre console to the optimally positioned instruments and round control elements that echo the legendary BMW Z8, a journey inside this vehicle offers a new discovery in elegance every time. Even with the roof closed, the overwhelming feeling of freedom remains and the bond between the driver, the vehicle and the road is as close as ever.

The retractable hardtop of the BMW Z4 Roadster.

The first BMW roadster with a hardtop. Its sophisticated design means the characteristic low-slung appearance remains unaltered even with the top down. This is possible thanks to the optimal folding of the two aluminium roof shells in 22 seconds. With the top closed, the roof line of the roadster adopts a coupé-style silhouette, and the generous side and rear windows ensure captivating panorama views. Whichever option you choose, you can open and close the roof safely up to a speed of 40 km/h. Whether you choose to drive with the roof open or closed, it's never a question of style but always of the moment.

The four-cylinder petrol engines sDrive20i and sDrive28i with innovative BMW TwinPower turbo technology boast impressively high dynamics and efficient consumption. While the fully-variable valve control Valvetronic and the direct petrol injection lower consumption, the TwinScroll turbo and the double-Vanos increase performance and response. Emotion and facts are intertwined in the sDrive28i: a powerful 180 kW (245 hp) help the BMW Z4 Roadster accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds and it uses only 6.8 litres per 100 km.

Effortlessly trace the curves of the road as you negotiate confidently in and out of bends. With the optional adaptive M chassis, the BMW Z4 Roadster pushes the boundaries of driving dynamics without ever compromising comfort.

Sports driving demands unwavering concentration. Reactions are 
measured in milliseconds. DSC constantly monitors the forces acting on the BMW Z4 Roadster's chassis and checks that they are within the maximum limits. If the vehicle's behaviour indicates a danger of skidding, the system quickly and subtly intervenes by braking individual wheels as needed. The next-generation DSC now offers not only ABS and Dynamic Brake Control (DBC) but new extended .

1. Brake stand-by for reduced stopping distances in an emergency.
2. Brake drying for improved brake response in wet conditions.
3. The hill-start assistant* for worry-free hill starts without rolling backwards.

50:50 weight distribution in the BMW Z4 Roadster.

Rear-wheel drive and the intelligent use of modern lightweight materials ensure that the BMW Z4 Roadster's overall weight is distributed evenly between the two axles. The result is excellent handling and outstanding agility for maximum enjoyment on every bend.

The rigid bodyshell on the BMW Z4 Roadster.

Whether on racing cars or cranes, engineers often opt for a triangle structure to provide the perfect connection when distributing large loads using as little material as possible. On the BMW Z4 Roadster, specially designed supports positioned between the plates lend the bodyshell outstanding rigidity even when the hardtop is open to provide a level of steering precision and passive safety usually associated with a BMW sedan.

Safety systems in the BMW Z4 Roadster.

BMW Z4 Roadster
A precisely-designed network of suspension, engine management, brakes and tyres, plus Dynamic Stability Control - all with one single objective: to keep the BMW Z4 Roadster safely on track, even in the most demanding situations. The head-thorax airbags are ideally positioned in the seats and are deployed as needed to deliver split-second protection for the vehicle's occupants, should a collision be unavoidable. And the particularly rigid side sills efficiently distribute energy in the case of a side impact.
