    Clearly labeled news sections guide you to categorized content. For example, in National you'll find Health & Science coverage, Energy & Environment and the blogs On Faith and On Leadership.

And see what The Washington Post does best in the Investigations section.

Rather than a single navigation bar labeled "news," all news content is now distributed under core pages and sections for a more organized presentation. As examples, you'll find campaign news under Politics, crime news under Local, Afghanistan news under World and celebrity news under Entertainment.

Arts & Living

The name is gone, but you'll find all the content you want in two new sections, Entertainment and Lifestyle.
