Our partner, CBS, is looking for someone who would like to participate in a story for The Early Show on stress and the difficult economic environment.
The person should be a non-finance professional (retired is okay) who manages his or her retirement savings in a portfolio account that is exposed to fluctuations in the stock market. We are looking for someone who monitors his portfolio quite often, because he is concerned about how the volatility in the stock market could adversely affect his savings.
If you think the above reflects your situation and you would like to learn more, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org and provide a little information about your situation, along with the best way to contact you.

Earlier today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that sunscreen products meeting modem standards for effectiveness may be labeled with new information to help consumers find products that, when used with other sun protection measures, reduce the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging, along with preventing sunburn.
What does this all mean?
Those sunscreen products that pass the FDA's test for protection against both ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) rays will be labeled as "Broad Spectrum". Only products labeled as "Broad Spectrum" with 15 SPF or higher will now be able to state on their labels that they reduce the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging, when used as directed. Products not in this range will require a warning label stating that the product has NOT been shown to prevent skin cancer or early skin aging.
* Will these new regulations affect which sunscreens you purchase for your family?
* What types of sunscreen do you have in your house right now? UVA, UVB, both, which SPF?
* What questions would you ask the FDA about sunscreen use or these regulations?
WebMD will present our members' questions to an FDA panel today at 2 p.m.View Thread
We are excited to announce that WebMD and Sanford Health are creating web destinations designed to educate kids on the importance of being fit, living a healthy lifestyle, and how to go about making real healthy changes.
These new entertaining and educational resources are being designed with guidance from experts in child health, education and entertainment with a goal to involve kids themselves in the creation!
Your child and other kids you know can be part of the creation of these innovative new resources while we're still in our design phase by taking this survey within the next 7 days!
The survey is designed to get the opinions of kids (8- 18 years old) on the interface, language and concepts in development. It also provides opportunities for the kids to give their own free-form comments.
We encourage you to ask the children you know to participate in this survey. Parents are welcome to take the survey too, and their feedback will be evaluated separately from the kids.
Just go to the web address provided below and submit the group password provided.
WebMD and Sanford Health respect individual privacy choices. Your participation in this survey is strictly voluntary. All responses or data collected via this survey are strictly confidential and anonymous and will not be shared with any unauthorized party.
