Hello, and welcome to the Daily Briefing for September 6, 2012. Now, today our top stories are:

President Obama is accepting his party’s nomination.

Gabby Giffords will be attending the convention later today.
One company says that 201,000 jobs were added last month.
Now its time for our Short and Sweet Stories, our top stories condensed.
Tonight, in front of Time Warner Arena, President Obama will accept his party’s nomination to be re-elected. He has some tough acts to follow, such as President Clinton, First Lady Michelle Obama, and Senate nominee from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren. His speech was supposed to be at the 74,000 person capacity outdoor Bank of America Stadium. However, due to weather, the speech was moved back to the indoor Time Warner Arena.
Former Representative Gabrielle Giffords will be at the convention tonight, and she will be leading the Pledge of Allegiance. Giffords was involved in a tragedy last year, when a gunman opened fire at one of her “Congress on Your Corner” events. Since then, she has been traveling the slow path of recovery, and resigned this January to focus on her recovery. At this convention, two Gabbys have lead the Pledge. Yesterday, Olympian Gabby Douglas lead the Pledge.
The paycheck processing firm ADP has said that the private sector added 201,000 jobs last month. This is much higher than economists have been predicting of 143,000. The economy needs to add  150,000 jobs per month just to keep up with the rising population.
