"Top 10 Everything of 2011"

What I like about some end-of-the-year countdowns: They help us stop and take stock of what happened that year. They help us look back on some of the most powerful stories, moments, and words spoken by people in the news.
So in the Newsroom, I'm doing some segments today on this from our partners at, the top 10 "everything" of the year.
What were the top apologies and quotes?
Plus, we'll have some fun with the top viral videos.
What do you think belongs on these lists? Weigh in here, or at Facebook and Twitter.

Green Monday and how to ship gifts

Monday is expected to be a big day for the economy, particularly retail. In fact, it's up there with "Cyber Monday."
It's called "Green Monday." Last year, it saw nearly a billion dollars in online sales. The prediction for this year is even higher.
That means an incredible workload for shipping companies.
So we paid a visit to a major carrier to get a glimpse behind the scenes. Today in the Newsroom, we're introducing you to some of the hard-working Americans getting those goods to you. And we'll hear shipping tips from DHL.
For more tips on how to send your goods so they arrive intact, check out these sites from FedEx, UPS, and the U.S. Postal Service.
What are your tips for shipping and online shopping? Post below, or join our discussions at Facebook and Twitter.
Happy Holidays!
