    The price tag for keeping the National Guard in Washington D.C. since Jan. 6 has reached an estimated $438 million, a senior defense official told Fox News. The estimate came as the nation came close to a month since the riots that left rocked the U.S. Capitol. Chief Pentagon spokesman John Kirby recently said that Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin had committed to ordering all units to "stand down" in the next 60 days. Between 5,000 to 7,000 troops are staying in D.C. until mid-March, a significant reduction from the 26,000 that were deployed to help secure the inauguration. A spokesman previously confirmed to Fox News that the D.C. National Guard would "remain on orders until March 31, 2021." ONGOING CAPITOL TROOP PRESENCE SPARKS QUESTIONS Acting Army Secretary John E.

    Washington (CNN)The Republican counterproposal on coronavirus relief unveiled Monday would potentially leave out 29 million middle- and upper-income earners who would qualify for stimulus payments under President Joe Biden's plan. The GOP plan would cut off cash for individuals earning more than $50,000 a year and couples earning more than $100,000, according to a fact sheet provided by the office of Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins, who rolled out the proposal Sunday with nine other Republicans.

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — One of the biggest lottery jackpots in U.S. history is up for grabs tonight. Friday night’s Mega Millions jackpot has grown to an estimated $1 billion, making it the third-largest U.S. lottery prize of all time. No tickets matching all six numbers were sold for 36 consecutive drawings, the game’s longest streak without a jackpot winner in its history. However, a ticket sold in Artesia matched five numbers in Tuesday night’s Mega Millions drawing. That ticket is worth $1.4 million. Just two other jackpots have been bigger – on Jan. 13, 2016, when the Powerball jackpot was worth $1.586 billion, and the Mega Millions jackpot worth $1.537 billion on Oct. 23, 2018. The odds of matching all five numbers and the Mega number are 1 in 302,575,350, according to the California Lottery. A person’s chance of winning a prize is just 1 in 24. And one...
    Friday marks the 48th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, which has resulted in an estimated 62 million abortions, according to one analysis. The National Right to Life Committee (NRLTC), the nation's oldest pro-life organization, says it reached an estimate of 62,502,904 by tracking data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Guttmacher Institute, which previously served as a research arm of the nation's preeminent abortion provider, Planned Parenthood. Since Guttmacher's latest data was from 2017, NRLTC used the number from that year -- 862,320 -- to project figures for 2018-2020. While CDC has provided counts up to 2018, its numbers are limited due to the exclusion of California, New Hampshire, and Maryland. Much of the debate surrounding abortion has tended towards discussions about rights and when life begins. Among varying ideas advanced by the left, former Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards has argued that "there's no specific...

    According to CNBC’s analysis, Apple’s App Store made $64 billion in revenue in 2020, which is a 28 percent increase from the estimated $50 billion it made in 2019. This represents a good amount of growth for the App Store since the estimated increase between 2018 and 2019 was only 3.1 percent. It’s hard to tell the exact reason for the spike in growth, but it likely had something to do with the COVID-19 pandemic. I can say from personal experience that I bought quite a few more games in 2020 than I have in years past, as well as subscriptions to fitness and productivity apps to try to regain some control of my life during quarantine. When Apple reports on its financials, it lumps the money it makes from the App Store in with its services revenue, which is by far its fastest-growing category. The company takes...
    DALLAS – For millions of Americans who used online tax services, their second stimulus payment may have been sent to the wrong bank account. Tax preparation company Jackson Hewitt said the Internal Revenue Service sent payments to an estimated 13+ million banks accounts that are no longer open or valid. These bank accounts were set up by tax companies, like Jackson Hewitt, H&R Block, and TurboTax, as temporary accounts used to deposit tax refunds for their customers who opt to have tax preparation fees taken out of their refund. The accounts are usually closed after the remaining refund money to pass along to the client. The problem is, the IRS still has these accounts in its records, so that’s where the federal government sent millions of stimulus payments. Tax firms said they are doing everything they can but point out this is the IRS’ mistake. Haven’t Received 2nd Stimulus Check? ...

    Workers pack turkeys at a farm in Orefield, Pennsylvania, on Nov. 20, 2020, ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. Findings from a new survey by the Center for American Progress (CAP) show that as many as 5 million undocumented immigrant workers—“nearly 3 in 4 undocumented immigrants in the workforce”—serve as essential workers amid the novel coronavirus pandemic, in front-line roles ranging from agricultural laborers feeding America to medical care professionals saving lives. “Among those Americans bearing the brunt of the pandemic and its economic fallout are 10.4 million undocumented immigrants,” the findings said. “At the same time, over the past nine months, millions of these immigrants have worked alongside their neighbors to keep the country functioning and safe … after decades of taking these jobs for granted, the country has come to realize just how essential these individuals and their contributions are.” The findings from the organization show that undocumented workers are represented in multiple areas of front-line response...
    DENVER (CBS4) – Colorado health officials said on Tuesday that an estimated 1 in 41 Coloradans has COVID-19.

Epidemiologists said daily deaths from COVID-19 could double in the next several weeks if the rate of transmission doesn’t slow.

    (CNN) — A rare metallic asteroid about three times farther away from the sun than our planet could yield secrets about Earth’s molten core, and scientists want to learn all about it. A new study published Monday in The Planetary Science Journal takes a closer look at this mysterious asteroid, using data from the Hubble Telescope. Located between Mars and Jupiter, Asteroid 16 Psyche is one of the most massive objects in the asteroid belt in our solar system, and with a diameter of about 140 miles, it is roughly the same length as Massachusetts (if you exclude Cape Cod). The exact composition of Psyche is still unclear, but scientists think it’s possible the asteroid is mostly made of iron and nickel. It’s been hypothesized that a piece of iron of its size could be worth about $10,000 quadrillion, more than the entire economy on our planet. Scientists believe that...

    A new study suggests that Americans will owe billions of dollars in unpaid rent by December — but that could mean that the nation’s worst fears about the eviction crisis may not come to fruition. Researchers at the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia used payroll, joblessness and unemployment insurance data to create a more precise estimate of how many households nationwide are behind on their rent. The number they produced is far lower than the figures presented by other studies. The researchers estimated that by December around 1.34 million renter households will be behind on their rent as a result of pandemic-related job losses, which equates to roughly 4.2% of all renter households. Altogether, these households will owe roughly $7.2 billion in rent by December, averaging to around $5,400. These households include 2.8 million adults and 1.1 million children. The study also found they were more likely to...

    Donald Trump stayed in Paris with the U.S. ambassador to France, and then returned to Washington with three works of art taken from the residence, it has emerged. The president was in Paris in November 2018 as part of the commemorations for the centennial of the end of World War I. He stayed as a guest of Ambassador Jamie McCourt at the Hotel de Pontalba, a spectacular Parisian townhouse built between 1852 and 1855, which was bought by the U.S. in 1948. Trump's time in Paris has been in the news this week after the Atlantic reported that he had described U.S. soldiers who died in World War I and in Vietnam as 'losers' and 'suckers', for not finding a way to dodge the draft.

    The U.S. economy shrank at an alarming annual rate of 31.7% during the April-June quarter as it struggled under the weight of the viral pandemic, the government estimated Thursday. It was the sharpest quarterly drop on record. The Commerce Department downgraded its earlier estimate of the U.S. gross domestic product last quarter, finding that the devastation was slightly less than the 32.9% annualized contraction it had estimated at the end of July. The previous worst quarterly drop since record-keeping began in 1947 was a 10% annualized loss in 1958. Last quarter, businesses shuttered and millions of workers lost jobs as the world's largest economy went into lockdown mode, succeeding only fitfully in limiting the spread of reported viral infections.

    Turns out that plugging a bunch of computers into our electrical grid that do nothing but draw current and hash through algorithms has had some negative environmental impacts. Recent studies suggest that Bitcoin-related power consumption has reached record highs this year — with more than seven gigawatts of power being pulled in the pursuit of the suspect digital currency. A study from the Cambridge Center for Alternative Finance released on Monday estimates that the global bitcoin mining industry uses 7.46 GW, equivalent to around 63.32 terawatt-hours of energy consumption. The study also notes that miners are paying around $0.03 to $0.05 per kWh this year. Given that a March estimate put the cost to mine a full bitcoin is around $7,500, the average miner still stands to make over $4,000 in profit from the operation.
    By Tom Polansek CHICAGO (Reuters) - A storm packing hurricane-force winds on Monday impacted 37.7 million acres of farmland across the Midwest, including 14 million in Iowa, the Iowa Soybean Association said on Friday, citing estimates from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh announced it applied for a $2.5 million loan while entities within the diocese received an estimated $13 to $14 million in loans meant to help small businesses during the coronavirus pandemic. The diocese announced Tuesday its 124 entities got loans that went to 110 parishes, eight high schools, two regions encompassing 14 elementary schools and four elementary schools. Earlier today, the diocese announced it was laying off 11 people. “As a point of clarity, parishes, schools, and charitable organizations, such as Catholic Charities, within the diocese are separate legal entities from the Diocese of Pittsburgh. As such, they were required to apply for PPP loans individually, and many received diocesan support and guidance in doing so,” a press release says.
