The various events include BMX, skateboarding and this year - surfing. The event take splace July 21-24. Why is it a big deal for Ocean City?

The Dew Tour has announced the list of confirmed competitors for August's Pantech Beach Championships, just 15 days away. The list has some major names, unfortunately one is missing: Shaun White won't be competing this year due to a knee surgery, but still plans to be in O.C. to show his support for fellow athletes. White, 25, was recently seen at the Summer Games in London, where he was pitching for skateboarding to become an Olympic sport. "I've heard talk about 2016 in Brazil maybe getting skateboarding, for me that would be like the ultimate to compete Winter and Summer," White, an Olympic medalist for snowboarding, told Reuters.

$19.99 for Nintendo DS. Rated Everyone. *** As Mr. ESC, players guide survivors out of disaster areas in the puzzle game Exit DS. There are 150 levels to challenge players as they try to reach each stage's exit. Mr. ESC can walk, run, jump, climb and use items, but he's only one man. To succeed, he'll need the help of the survivors he's rescuing, whom he can order to take routes he can't, help push heavy objects, pick up items he can't reach, and otherwise help him help them. The game has a stylish, expressive look and solid game-play fundamentals, but it is hampered a bit by poor path-finding on the part of rescued survivors.

Bonus: Kid Cudi plays a free show Saturday. Ocean City Pier, 4001 Coastal Highway. $24-$29 (includes festival village access). dewtouroc.com 2.

BARDONECCHIA, Italy -- Shaun White was admittedly rattled, this being his first Olympics and with so much expected of him. He stood atop the U-shaped halfpipe for his first run and could not turn his attention away from the 7,000 people said to be watching from the stands, or from the five rings plastered on flags and banners throughout the venue, signifying the magnitude of the day. "I never really felt that before," he said later. Nor had he ever experienced the kind of satisfaction that he did yesterday, after he'd pulled himself together and met all those expectations - and then some - by winning the halfpipe snowboard gold medal with a come-from-behind performance that left even his competitors in awe. Only another U.S. sweep, which was the big story of the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics, could have added to the warm feeling evident through the flushed cheeks and moist eyes of the 19-year-old from Carlsbad, Calif.

Philadelphia "X-tink-shun" exhibit at the Philadelphia Zoo Featuring puppets by the Jim Henson Company, "X-tink-shun" has characters of endangered or extinct species stationed throughout the zoo, educating visitors about the plight of their particular species and encouraging the passers-by to make their voices heard. So while you shouldn't expect to see Miss Piggy throwing herself at Kermit or Statler and Waldorf guffawing on a balcony somewhere, you should expect characters like Didi the Dodo and Leo the Golden Lion Tamarin.

TURIN, Italy --If your passport was issued in the United States, the Winter Olympics experience used to be a nice European vacation. Very rarely would you leave with a medal tucked in the goody bag between the pins and a chunk of fine Swiss chocolate. While Norway, East Germany and the former Soviet Union basked in gold, silver and bronze, the U.S. came away with more of a bright shade of red, as in embarrassment. There were two gold medals in 1988, and never more than six since 1980, until the U.S. caught the patriotic buzz of Salt Lake City for the 2002 Games.
