3 million people expected to attend NYC Thanksgiving parade.

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade 2015 would not roll without balloon test flights. Carol Mowen, right, works with student Kirsten Delauney preparing to participate in the oral history project StoryCorps at Washington County Technical High School in Hagerstown, Md., on Nov. 12, 2015. City officials have said there are no known, credible threats against New York following the recent attacks in Paris and a video purportedly produced by ISIS that contained video clips of Times Square. Here are your options: Performers: Mariah Carey; Daughtry; Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo; Andy Grammer; Trey Songz; Jordin Sparks; Shawn Mendes; Jennifer Nettles; Jake Owen; Rachel Platten; Questlove; MercyMe; Panic! at the Disco; Plain White T’s and more. But Police Commissioner William Bratton said more than 2,500 officers will be stationed along the parade route for the Thanksgiving Day festivities — the largest number of officers the department has ever assigned to the event. “I think people are coming here from all over the city, all over the metropolitan region, all over the country to be a part of this parade,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said during a news conference Wednesday night. “We cannot let the terrorists succeed at psychological warfare. …

Extras: The annual appearance by the Radio City Rockettes, along with songs from several Broadway productions including “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Finding Neverland” and “The King & I.” And a preview of “The Wiz Live!,” the network’s latest live production airing next Thursday. They’re doing what they do to try and create fear, to try and change us.” Thousands of people gathered in Manhattan on Wednesday night to watch as the large, character balloons that have become a staple in the parade were inflated. Extras: The Broadway casts of “Beautiful — the Carole King Musical” and “Jersey Boys.” And appearances from Wayne Brady (“Kinky Boots”); Renée Elise Goldsberry (of “Hamilton” and “The Good Wife”); and George Takei.

Performances: Lots of local productions from musical “Million Dollar Quartet”; Goodman Theatre’s “A Christmas Carol”; Emerald City Theatre’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas”; Chicago Gay Men’s chorus and many more. StoryCorps, a non-profit that helps Americans record their personal histories, has unveiled a free mobile app to get families talking around the Thanksgiving dinner table. Founder Dave Isay says the effort aims to collect more conversations in a weekend than the 65,000 the group has recorded since 2003 with a sound booth and a facilitator. Aimed at teens, the exercise of interviewing their grandparents can “capture an entire generation of American lives and experiences,” he said, and the recordings can be uploaded to an archive at the Library of Congress.

Shopping on Thanksgiving is now a thing, so we’ve rounded up the opening hours for some national retailers from RadioShack and Best Buy to Target and Toys R Us. If Friday’s your day, here’s your guide to doorbusters. (Hint: They’re probably not where you think they are.) Whichever day you shop, remember that no deal is worth a broken bone.

Millions celebrated Mass with Pope Francis at the University of Nairobi in Kenya on Thursday, which has been declared a public holiday and national day of prayer and reflection. Heightened tensions between Muslims and Christians in the country and the presence of militant group al-Shabab has led to the deployment of thousands of police and soldiers throughout the capital.Francis’ visit to Kenya is part of his six-day pilgrimage to Africa, where he will also visit Uganda and the Central African Republic. In order for all these air-balls to not just fall down on the ground, they must have more collisions in the upward direction than the downward direction. If NFL football isn’t your thing, there are a few NCAA football games on the schedule or you can check out this list of the best high school rivalry games played on Thanksgiving Day.

The only way to make the vertical forces cancel is if the net upward force from the air pushing on the air-block is equal in magnitude to the gravitational weight of the air. If you consider a 75 kg human to have a density near that of water (1000 kg/m3) this would give a body volume of just 0.075 m3 and a buoyancy force of 0.882 Newtons (0.2 pounds). This means that if I increase the radius of a balloon by a factor of 10, the volume will increase by 1000 but maybe the mass of the shell only increases by 100.
