    Parts of the East Coast will likely be getting slammed with up to two feet of snow this weekend -- but not New Jersey or Pennsylvania. Boston is expected to be at the heart of the Nor'easter, which will begin creeping in sometime Friday evening, AccuWeather reports.  The Jersey Shore could be buried under 6 to 12 inches but the rest of the state is looking at 3 to 6 inches. Philadelphia and Maryland are expected to get 1 to 3 inches. Central Pennsylvania is looking at flurries if anything, the National Weather Service says. However, AccuWeather noted, "Any small shift in the storm track to the east or west could mean the difference between a manageable snowfall or blizzard conditions in the five boroughs of [New York City]." Friday will be cloudy with a high in the mid-30s. Snowfall was expected to begin after 3 p.m. on the Jersey Shore, and would be heaviest between 10 p.m. and Saturday evening, the National Weather Service says. Sunday is looking sunny with a high of around 30.
    A powerful nor'easter that could to turn into a bomb cyclone threatens to put parts of New England under two to three feet of snow, while burying New York City with up to a foot this weekend. Officials along the East Coast begged drivers to stay off the roads in hopes of avoiding the traffic nightmare that befell motorists in Virginia after extreme weather hit earlier this month. The latest major winter storm, which will develop off the Carolina coast late this week, could potentially strengthen as it moves along the East Coast into a bomb cyclone, which occurs when the central pressure of a storm crashes by 0.71 of an inch or more within 24 hours, Accuweather.com reported.  The storm has yet to form and won't until Friday, but still 'confidence is increasing that a significant winter storm will create considerable impacts Friday through the weekend from the Mid-Atlantic through the Northeast,' the Weather Prediction Center said on Tuesday.  Regardless, the heaviest snowfall is expected farther up north in Boston and New England, which will be 'clobbered' with as much as...

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — If legendary ring announcer Michael Buffer were creating this blog he would intone, “Welcome to the main event! LET’S get ready to RUMMMMBLE!” At this point, we can give you a timeline and totals for snowfall over the next 36 hours.

    Brand-new snowfall projections have just been released by the National Weather Service for the major Nor'easter headed to the region. The time frame for the potent storm is early Friday evening, Jan. 28 into early Saturday evening, Jan. 29. Snowfall predictions have increased slightly, the National Weather Service said just after sunset on Thursday, Jan. 27. The hardest-hit area in the region is expected to be eastern Long Island, where up to 15 inches of snowfall is possible in spots along with dangerous 70 mile-per-hour wind gusts that could knock out power. "Eastern New England and the eastern tip of Long Island, is where you have a very good probability of getting more than a foot of snow,” AccuWeather Chief On-Air Meteorologist Bernie Rayno said.

    ARSENAL have reportedly agreed terms to sign goalkeeper Matt Turner from Major League Soccer side New England Revolution. If the deal gets over the line, it could mean current No2 keeper Bernd Leno is allowed to leave. 1Arsenal have reportedly agreed a deal to sign US keeper Matt Turner Turner, 27, was instrumental in America winning the Concacaf Gold Cup in August, with the player named as the tournament's best shot-stopper. Now, according to ESPN, 'parties have agreed to terms on a summer transfer' with 'documents to be filed'. But Turner is expected to see out the rest of the season in the US - meaning Leno might have to sit tight for a few more months. Leno, who hasn't featured in the Premier League since the 5-0 defeat against Manchester City on August 28, was omitted from Arsenal's squad to face Liverpool recently. Ramsdale retained his place between the sticks for the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg, while academy goalkeeper Karl Hein was named on the bench instead of the ex-Bayer Leverkusen ace.

    A wind-driven wildfire that burned right up to the iconic Bixby Creek Bridge on the Big Sur coast last week is now 65% contained, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. The Colorado fire has burned 700 acres since it first ignited Friday evening in Monterey County near Palo Colorado Canyon and the Big Sur coast, officials said. Approximately 500 people were forced to flee their homes as strong offshore winds whipped through the area. Gusts reached up to 35 mph and spread the blaze that Cal Fire investigators says was started by hot embers from a runaway pile burning operation, where trees and brush were gathered in a pile and intentionally set on fire. Cal Fire did not specify who started the pile burn, because the investigation is ongoing. “The wind got behind the escaped pile burn and blew those embers on to some nearby vegetation,” Cal Fire spokesperson Cecile Juliette said. #ColoradoFire off Palo Colorado Canyon, Big Sur, south of Carmel-by-the-sea in Monterey County is 700 acres and 65% contained.

    FOXBORO (CBS) — When the US Men’s National team kicks off a three-game stretch of World Cup Qualifiers on Thursday night, Revolution goalkeeper Matt Turner will likely be the one in net trying to shut out El Salvador.

    NEW YORK (AP) — MSNBC announced Thursday that business journalist Stephanie Ruhle will replace Brian Williams on the nightly newscast “The 11th Hour,” and that “Morning Joe” will expand to four hours. Ruhle, who will continue as a senior business analyst across other NBC News programs, had been host of the 9 a.m. Eastern hour on the news network. In a memo to staff, MSNBC President Rashida Jones said Ruhle will bring her “business acumen, hard-hitting interview style and original reporting” to the 11 p.m. Eastern hour. She’s expected to keep the format Williams originated before leaving the network in December, with a review of the day’s news and a centerpiece panel of three experts. “Morning Joe,” with Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski and Willie Geist as hosts and a rotating panel of guests, currently airs from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. Eastern. It will take over the hour Ruhle is vacating.

    AMSTERDAM (AP) — The European Medicines Agency has recommended that Pfizer’s coronavirus antiviral drug be authorized for use in the 27-nation European Union, the first time the agency has recommended a pill for treating COVID-19. In a statement on Thursday, the EU drug regulator said giving the green light to Pfizer’s Paxlovoid could help people infected with COVID-19 avoid more serious disease and being hospitalized. EMA’s expert committee recommended the pill be given to adults who don’t require oxygen and who are at higher risk of severe disease. The drug was cleared by regulators in the U.S. and Britain in late December, although authorities noted that supplies would be extremely limited. An antiviral pill from Merck also is expected to soon be authorized. But Pfizer’s drug is all but certain to be the preferred option because of its mild side effects and superior effectiveness as suggested by studies, including a nearly 90% reduction in hospitalizations and deaths among patients most likely to get severely ill. The pills from both Pfizer and Merck are expected to be effective against...

    The U.S. economy grew at a much better than expected pace to end 2021 though the acceleration likely tailed off as the omicron spread put a damper on hiring and further hindered the global supply chain. Gross domestic product, the sum of all goods and services produced during the October-through-December period, increased at a 6.9% annualized pace, the Commerce Department reported Thursday. Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had been looking for a gain of 5.5%. The report reflected an overall solid period for the economy after output had slowed considerably over the summer. Supply chain issues tied to the pandemic coupled with robust demand spurred by unprecedented stimulus from Congress and the Federal Reserve led to imbalances across the economic spectrum. Inflation surged in 2021, particularly in the second half of the year, as supply couldn't keep up with strong demand, particularly for goods over services. The U.S. heads into 2022 on uncertain footing, with Fed Chairman Jerome Powell warning Wednesday that growth in the early part of the year is slowing, though he views the economy overall as strong....

Here's what Wall Street analysts surveyed by Refinitiv are expecting: Earnings per share: $2.34 expected Revenue: $6.03 billion The fast-food giant has been soundly squashing its rivals in recent quarters, and Wall Street is predicting similar results this time around, too. Analysts are expecting U.S. same-store sales growth of 6.9%, according to StreetAccount estimates. But the burger chain is facing a number of challenges as it heads into 2022. Staffing shortages, food inflation and the omicron variant have hit the restaurant industry at large. And some of its international markets have imposed vaccination mandates that could make consumers less likely to visit. However, Wall Street is confident that McDonald's is positioned well despite those potential obstacles. The company is also expected to release its 2022 outlook on Thursday. Wall Street is forecasting earnings of $10.15 per share and revenue of $24.74...

    NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) — The European Union has earmarked 657 million euros ($736 million) for the construction of a a 2,000-megawatt undersea electricity cable that will link the power grids of Israel, Cyprus and Greece, Cypriot Energy Minister Natasa Pilides said Thursday. Pilides told reporters the funding is Cyprus’ largest-ever investment as well as the lion’s share of the total sum that the EU’s Connecting Europe Facility, which bankrolls infrastructure projects, has allocated to a single project this year. Pilides said the money enables crews to start constructing the segment of the cable that will connect Cyprus with Crete whose total cost is estimated at roughly 1.6 billion euros ($1.8 billion). Negotiations to transfer the funds are expected to wrap up this summer. Pilides said beyond the project’s geopolitical weight, it will ensure Cyprus’ energy security, boost competitiveness in the power supply sector and help the island nation more easily transition to a green economy. With the cable’s completion, it’s expected that more investment will flow into renewable energy sources enhancing the energy mix of Greece, Cyprus and Israel....
    Thursday’s cold weather, with not-as-blustery wind chills and falling, freezing evening temperatures, is setting the stage for snow and showers that will mark the weekend to come. Across the D.C. region, temperatures are expected to linger in the teens and 20s before rising to around freezing into Thursday afternoon. All of this preempts two separate storm systems with the potential to bring an inch or more of snow to the area.

              by Harry Wilmerding   The International Monetary Fund (IMF) cut its global economic growth forecast for 2022 on Tuesday, citing growing COVID-19 cases, supply chain bottlenecks and soaring inflation. The IMF now projects global gross domestic (GDP) product to grow 4.4% in 2022, down from 5.9% growth in 2021, according to the IMF’s World Economic Outlook report published Tuesday. The IMF projected global GDP would reach 4.9% in its Fall report. “The global economy enters 2022 in a weaker position than previously expected,” the report said, blaming “downside surprises,” including soaring COVID-19 cases and turbulent markets. The report highlights weaker projections in the U.S. and China as central to a slowdown in global growth. The U.S. economy is expected to grow only 4% in 2022, 1.2% lower than the IMF’s previous projection. China’s growth forecast was slashed to 4.8% for 2022 from the organization’s earlier 5.6% projection. The IMF pointed to soaring inflation coupled as a source of higher energy prices, specifically in Brazil, Canada and Mexico. Higher inflation is expected to last longer than previously thought, but the report says it should ease by late 2022, “as...
    Ravens coach John Harbaugh is expected to sign a contract extension in the coming weeks, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. Harbaugh is entering the last year of a four-year deal he signed in January 2019, and it’s long been owner Steve Bisciotti’s preference to avoid such “lame duck” scenarios at head coach. The Ravens are coming off their first season without a playoff berth since 2017, but the 59-year-old Harbaugh has made a postseason appearance in nine of his 14 seasons in Baltimore. He’s 137-88 overall in the regular season and 11-8 in the postseason, including a triumph in Super Bowl XLVII. Almost two years after becoming the franchise’s first coach to win Associated Press NFL Coach of the Year honors, Harbaugh was widely praised for his leadership this season, helping guide an injury-depleted Ravens team to the top of the AFC in early December. Quarterback Lamar Jackson’s season-ending ankle injury in Week 14, however, doomed the Ravens to a disappointing final stretch. The team lost its last six games, the longest such...
    Interviews for the Ravens’ vacant defensive coordinator position are expected to continue this week, according to sources with knowledge of the situation, even as multiple reports suggest Michigan defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald has emerged as the front-runner for the job. Macdonald, who served on coach John Harbaugh’s staff in Baltimore from 2014 to 2020, had a strong first season in Ann Arbor. Michigan’s defense finished No. 13 nationally in ESPN’s Football Power Index, after ranking No. 106 in 2020, and helped the program defeat rival Ohio State for the first time since 2011 and win the Big Ten Conference championship for the first time since 2004. Wolverines edge rushers Aidan Hutchinson and David Ojabo are also expected to be first-round picks in this year’s NFL draft. Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, the brother of Ravens coach John Harbaugh, said last year that John had told him Macdonald, 34, would “probably” succeed Don “Wink” Martindale as the team’s next defensive coordinator. Macdonald served as the Ravens’ defensive backs coach in 2017 before coaching the team’s linebackers for three seasons under...
    President Biden lauded GM's Michigan investment, calling the decision to increase electric vehicle production "the latest sign that my economic strategy is helping power an historic American manufacturing comeback." General Motors on Tuesday announced it would be investing $6.6 billion in four manufacturing sites in Michigan as it ramps up electric vehicle (EV) and battery cell production in hopes of overtaking Tesla to become the country’s leader in EVs. “We are taking the next step in our continuous work to establish GM’s EV leadership by making investments in our vertically integrated battery production in the U.S., and our North American EV production capacity,” GM Chair and CEO Mary Barra said in a statement. The White House released its own response lauding the news, with President Biden calling GM’s decision to invest in Michigan “the latest sign that my economic strategy is helping power an historic American manufacturing comeback.” As part of the investment, GM’s Orion Assembly plant will be converted to manufacture electric trucks under the GMC and Chevrolet brands, with production beginning in 2024—just one year before Ford is expected to start...

    On what promises to be a brutally cold night around the District, volunteers will be on the streets for an annual count of D.C.’s homeless population. The annual Point in Time count is led by the nonprofit Pathways to Housing DC, and they’ll be out counting and gathering other data on the city’s homeless population between around 9 p.m. and 2 a.m. Recent years have shown encouraging progress in the fight against homelessness. More D.C. News Advocates say the total number of homeless residents has been dropping significantly since 2016 — by 73% — and last year alone, the survey noted a 20% decline in homelessness in DC from 2020. “That’s driven primarily by very large reductions in family homelessness,” said Christy Respress, the executive director of Pathways for Housing DC. “Where we have been stagnant is in ending homelessness for single adults.” While last year’s survey found a 20% overall drop, the number of homeless people sleeping on the streets went up about 4%, and those tend to be the single adults who are on their own....

    Justice Stephen Breyer will step down from the Supreme Court at the end of the current term, NBC News reported on Wednesday, citing people familiar with his thinking. The current court term will run into June or early July.  Breyer is one of the three remaining liberal justices and has been under pressure to step down in order to let President Joe Biden appoint his replacement. Liberal activists fretted that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg stayed on the Supreme Court too long despite her history of health problems and should have stepped down during the Obama administration. Instead, when she died in 2020, President Donald Trump appointed a conservative, Amy Coney Barrett, to fill her seat, moving the court further to the right. Breyer's decision to retire after more than 27 years on the court allows Biden to appoint a successor who could serve for several decades. Biden's appointee should maintain the current 6-3 split between conservative and liberal justices on the high court.

    In this article MCD BYND McDonald's McPlant BurgerCourtesy: McDonald'sMcDonald's McPlant burger is more popular than initially expected, according to Piper Sandler analyst Michael Lavery. In December, participating locations sold roughly 70 of the plant-based burgers it created with Beyond Meat per location every day in the chain's initial small test of the menu item. The fast-food giant began testing the McPlant burger in November in just eight restaurants to get a sense of how it would impact its operations. On Feb. 14, the chain will expand the test to about 600 restaurants in the San Francisco Bay and Dallas-Fort Worth areas to learn more about consumer demand. Lavery wrote in a note to clients on Tuesday that test locations were selling about three times more McPlant burgers than he initially forecast. For comparison, an average McDonald's restaurant typically sells about 110 Big Macs per day. Even with such a small sample size, Lavery said that early interest and willingness to try the product may be greater than expected, in a win for Beyond. He initially estimated a $75 million...
    WASHINGTON -- Wild volatility in the stock market this week has put heightened scrutiny on the Federal Reserve's meeting Wednesday and whether the Fed will clarify just how fast it plans to tighten credit and potentially slow the economy.With high inflation squeezing consumers and businesses, the Fed is expected to signal that it will raise its benchmark short-term interest rate in March in a dramatic reversal from the ultra-low-rate policies it imposed during the pandemic recession. To further tighten credit, the Fed also plans to end its monthly bond purchases in March. And later this year, it may start reducing its huge stockpile of Treasury and mortgage bonds.Investors fear there may be still more to come. Some on Wall Street worry that on Wednesday, the Fed may signal a forthcoming half-point increase in its key rate. There is also concern that at a news conference, Fed Chair Jerome Powell could suggest that the central bank will raise rates more times this year than the four hikes most economists expect.Another wild card - particularly for Wall Street - is the Fed's...

    February could mark an important milestone in the history of cryptocurrency, as the Biden administration is expected to release a set of regulations for the industry as it continues to grow into the mainstream. The governmentwide strategy would coordinate regulations across a number of agencies, tasking them with assessing risks and opportunities presented by the alternative currencies. BITCOIN WORTH LESS THAN HALF WHAT IT WAS IN OCTOBER AS MARKETS DROP Reports from Bloomberg and Yahoo! Finance reporter Jennifer Schonberger say that a National Security Council memorandum will also ask federal agencies to look into the idea of a central bank digital currency. The White House did not respond to requests for comment.

Expectations for interest rate hikes have grown over the past several weeks as inflation remains persistently high and sticky. Sources told Bloomberg that meetings have already...
    After Avenatti requested to represent himself, Judge Furman gave him a quiz to determine whether or not he was mentally sound enough to act as his own attorney. According to the Guardian, Assistant Attorney Andrew Rohrbach said, “This is a case about a lawyer who stole from his client. A lawyer who lied to cover up the scheme.” On Monday, Daniels alleged that her former lawyer, Avenatti, stole roughly $300,000 of the pornographic actress’ $800,000 book advance. According to the New York Post, Daniels is expected to be the prosecution’s star witness, and as Avenatti is now his own legal counsel, he is expected to cross-examine his former client. Federal prosecutors allege that Avenatti forged Daniels’ signature on official correspondence with a literary agent as he attempted to redirect money from her advance into an account which he controlled. According to the indictment, Avenatti then spent this money on payroll for his law firm, lease payments on a luxury vehicle, and other personal expenses. In a federal trial last July, Avenatti was found to have attempted...
