    WASHINGTON -- Every year we talk about flu season.Moving forward, it sounds more likely that we will be talking about flu and COVID season.That is what the FDA is going to discuss today. A panel of experts is meeting starting at 8:30 a.m. EDT.They are going to try to model out future waves of the virus, predict possible new variants and work on how best to match those predictions with a future vaccine.A decision is not expected for months, but this is similar to what they already do to get ready for flu season, which starts in the fall as more people gather indoors.Meantime, the director of the CDC is urging people over 50 to get their second booster shot."We really would encourage people who are over 50 who have underlying medical conditions and those over the age of 65 to go ahead and get that next shot," said Dr. Rochelle Walensky, "and also to recognize that they may very well need another shot come the fall. And that will be the subject of an FDA meeting."
    (CNN)Advisers to the US Food and Drug Administration are scheduled to meet Wednesday to get a clearer picture of what the future of Covid-19 booster shots might look like.Just last week, the FDA expanded the emergency use authorization of the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines to allow adults 50 and older to get a second booster shot as early as four months after their first booster dose of any Covid-19 vaccine.But there has been some debate around whether additional doses of Covid-19 vaccine will be needed for the general public -- and, if so -- when and how often.The FDA's Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee will discuss the possible need for Covid-19 vaccine booster shots in the future, including the process for selecting variant-specific boosters and whether the Covid-19 vaccine could become an annual shot. Could the Covid-19 vaccine become a yearly shot? Some experts think soAmericans might need to be ready for booster shots to become an annual occurrence, similar to how flu shots are recommended each year, Dr. Anthony Fauci, chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden,...

The U.S.-EU Trade and Technology Council, referred to as TTC, emerged in the wake of Joe Biden's presidential victory as the European Commission, the executive arm of the EU, looked to overcome transatlantic disputes in these areas. The Trump administration had slapped tariffs on the EU and the bloc had been keen to find a solution with the new president. Pittsburgh hosted the group's first gathering on Wednesday.

Here are four experts' thoughts on what they're looking for in markets for the rest of the month. Jim Cramer, host of CNBC's "Mad Money," discusses the Federal Reserve's difficult task in dialing back its stimulus. "This is a different kind of economy. I do expect that the government could screw us up. They always do. They do too much stimulus at this point. … I thought [St. Louis Fed President James] Bullard had a lot of good things to say, which is that we have enough job openings already. … Do we really need more stimulus? So I think that we're kind of in a hard place which is that some people want stimulus, some people don't." Aureus Asset Management CEO Karen Firestone shares where she's putting money to work. "The market, despite going up and grinding higher, has been a bit directionless when it comes to groups that are...

    The vaccine advisory committee of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will meet this week to discuss rules for authorizing coronavirus vaccines in kids under age 12. Members of the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) will not be asked to discuss specific immunizations or cast any votes. However, the meeting on Thursday will debate how many children should be enrolled in clinical trials, how many months of follow-up safety data is needed and how much efficacy the vaccines should have. It comes as several vaccine makers get clinical trials in children underway, with the hopes of having a jab approved by the end of the year.  Parents and doctors have been debating about whether or not to inoculate youngsters because they make up just 0.1 percent of all COVID deaths.   The FDA's Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee is planning to meet on Thursday to debate the parameters for authorizing COVID-19 vaccines in children later this year.

They are investigating whether there are more cases and whether other types of blood clots might be associated with the vaccine. The pause was also intended to give experts time to inform doctors about how to look for and treat these clots. CDC vaccine advisers put off decision on Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccineThe CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices met on April 14, but members said they needed more information about the J&J vaccine and the blood clot cases.Dr. William Schaffner, a non-voting ACIP member and infectious diseases professor at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, told CNN that the committee delayed making a decision because there...
    A bipartisan group of 20 senators are planning to meet on Wednesday to discuss what issue they may tackle next. The meeting comes one week after the Senate passed President Joe Biden's massive $1.9 trillion economic relief plan, Mr. Biden's first legislative initiative.  Moderate senators Joe Manchin of West Virginia, a Democrat, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, a Republican, told reporters on Tuesday that the meeting is to continue to build upon the working relationships between Republicans and Democrats. A bipartisan group of senators, including Manchin and Murkowski, worked closely together late last year to develop a framework for COVID-19 relief legislation that passed in December. Murkowski speculated that the group may discuss an infrastructure package.  A source familiar with the meeting said the meeting will be in person. "It's not like a committee meeting where we've got an agenda, which I think is good," Murkowski said. "I think you need to have that more open structure just for dialogue." Politico was first to report on the meeting. Senate Republicans who are members of this bipartisan group met with...
    Dear Quentin, My boyfriend of 10 years and I became acquainted because I was his tenant. He is 25 years my senior. I agreed to continue to pay rent because he told me that I would get the house when he died. To be fair, I also was not going to be able to move because the rents in my area began to skyrocket, and as a young single mother I wanted to work part-time so that I could care for my (then) young son. In the years that followed, we started two businesses together using the property that he owns. One was a short-term rental in a unit of the duplex house that we live in, and the other was a theater. Both were very popular. However, I did a lot of unpaid labor to get the businesses started as well as day to day operations. I did make some money managing the rental and received tips from working the bar at the theater, but my boyfriend kept the rest of the money. “ ‘He began taking part...
    It’s time to continue the conversation. It’s a conversation centered, after all, on arguably the most important question we face on how to grow Greater Washington’s business community: How do we make it more inclusive for all of its members across racial, gender, economic and geographic boundaries? It’s a conversation the Washington Business Journal began this summer with seven prominent Black leaders shortly after the death of George Floyd. We wanted to first listen to what those who have tread the path had to say about what must lie ahead. What we heard was this: Business leaders of color can talk ceaselessly about the things that need to change to create more opportunity and equity for others like them. But the only people who can actually effect that change are those currently in command of the leadership hierarchy — predominantly white executives. So, we invited prominent white business leaders to a roundtable moderated by Publisher Alex Orfinger and Editor-in-Chief Vandana… Read the full story from the Washington Business Journal.
    When state lawmakers return to Nashville next January, one topic for consideration will be what to do with Tennessee’s $741 million surplus funds from a welfare program for the working poor – a larger surplus than any other state in the nation. The surplus of funds from the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families welfare program, also known as Families First, was first reported by the Beacon Center of Tennessee and the Tennessean last year. The program is administered by the Tennessee Department of Human Services. The TANF program provides a roughly $240 monthly cash benefit for eligible families for a maximum of 16 months. The average monthly wage of employed participants was $920, as of September. About 15,500 families received TANF benefits in September, down from more than 17,500 in March, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit Tennessee. In budget hearings with Gov. Bill Lee last week, outgoing TDHS Commissioner Danielle Barnes explained that unemployment income counts against income requirements for TANF while providing a higher benefit, prompting many families to transition off of the TANF program...
    Washington (CNN)The ascension of Kamala Harris as the first female, first Black and first South Asian vice president-elect is both symbolic and important to many women across the United States, and several female politicians of color expressed on CNN Sunday morning what it meant to them."It is a privilege in this nation to be able to see yourself reflected in the face of leadership and for both the African-American community and the Indian American community and for women of collar at large," former Georgia gubernatorial candidate and Democratic organizer Stacey Abrams told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union." Joe Biden elected president "Kamala Harris' election signals that the face of leadership does change, that we do have a role to play beyond being supporters and advocates and adjutants that we can be the leaders of this country and I think it is an exceptional moment that we are experiencing in this country," Abrams continued. Symone Sanders, a senior adviser to President-elect Joe Biden, told Tapper, "I think folks in Wilmington and folks all over the world saw the true possibilities of America." And Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York called Harris' victory "really incredible"...

    Fox News’s Sean Hannity has a news crew staked outside of Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s home, urging him to address the Hunter Biden scandal. “Joe Biden, you have a lot of questions to answer, and It's time for you to answer them," Hannity said. "What did you know? When did you know it? Did you take a cut of your son's seedy international pay-for-play schemes?" Hannity said that a news team was outside the Delaware home and implored the former vice president to "walk outside of your house, leave your basement bunker, step out and answer these pressing questions.” "I know it's 9 p.m. Eastern, Joe, but if you are awake, we have a camera right outside of your house right now," Hannity said. "We will be more than happy to hear you out." Putting a crew outside of Biden’s home comes after the New York Post published stories last week detailing Hunter Biden allegedly set up a meeting between his father, when he served as vice president, and a senior official at Ukrainian energy firm Burisma, Vadym...
