REUTERS/Chris Wattie/File PhotoTORONTO (Reuters) - Canada’s ambassador to the United States said on Sunday that while the two countries have shared vision on many issues, President-elect Joe Biden’s economic policy is slightly more protectionist than what Canada would like. While Ottawa has been quick to embrace of Biden in an effort to turn the page on the Donald Trump era, the incoming U.S. administration’s “buy America” policy is worrying to Canada. This could harm Canada because its economy is highly dependent on United States, which takes 75% of all Canadian goods exports. Mired in a long-running diplomatic dispute with China and weighing a possible snap election this year, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has much riding on his ties with Biden. Hillman said Trudeau and Biden have a very warm and good relationship.

REUTERS/Cheriss MayWASHINGTON (Reuters) - President-elect Joe Biden’s goal of delivering 100 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine within the first 100 days of his presidency “is absolutely a doable thing,” Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said on Sunday. Fauci, speaking on NBC’s “Meet The Press”, said two new vaccines under development by AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson could “very soon” be presented to U.S. regulators for approval, which would increase the pace of vaccinations. About 10.6 million Americans have so far been vaccinated, about half as many as President Donald Trump’s administration hoped would have received injections by the end of 2020. Biden has said ramping up the pace of vaccinations will be one of his top priorities when he takes office on Wednesday. “One thing that’s clear is that the issue of getting 100 million doses in the first 100 days is absolutely a doable thing,” Fauci said.

WASHINGTON — Dr. Anthony Fauci, one of the nation’s foremost public health experts, said Sunday that the U.S. is “weeks away, not months away” from considering the approval of new coronavirus vaccines. But we're weeks away, not months away, for sure." While both those approved vaccines, as well as the one being developed by AstraZeneca, require two shots spaced out weeks apart, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine needs only one. The news comes as the incoming Biden administration continues to double down on its goal of 100 million coronavirus vaccinations in the first 100 days after Biden takes office. "One, double down on the public health measures we’ve been talking about all the time.

Sixty-one percent of all voters — but just 21 percent of Republicans — say Biden did win legitimately. And even for the half of Republicans who say they prioritize the GOP generally over allegiance to Trump, his high approval remains unmoved by recent events. Among Republicans who say their primary loyalty is to Trump over the party, 98 percent approve of his performance. (Those findings, however, contrast with a recent Pew poll showing Trump’s job rating declining among Republicans.) An additional 9 percent say Trump is "not as good as most."

Before the election, more than 80 percent of likely voters were somewhat or very concerned about election-related violence, according to a UMass Poll. It remains to be seen whether we will remember that surreal day as the end of an ugly episode in our history or an early skirmish in a prolonged period of political violence. As our evidence of partisan dehumanization has accumulated, we have grown increasingly concerned about its implications for our democracy and society. We found that both types of messages, when coming from Biden, significantly reduced endorsements of partisan dehumanization and violence, even among Republicans. Every American has the power to calm their fellow citizens, simply by speaking out against dehumanization and violence.

How Biden’s Proposed Paid Leave Would Work
  + stars: | 2021-01-17 | by ( Claire Cain Miller | ) www.nytimes.com sentiment -1.00   time to read: +1 min
More Americans may soon be able to take more than three months of paid leave from work for sickness or to care for children and family members during the pandemic, if Congress approves a plan proposed by President-elect Biden. Last spring, the first coronavirus relief package included paid leave. Now, as part of a wide-ranging plan to respond to the pandemic, the incoming administration has proposed reinstating and significantly expanding it. Why does paid leave matter right now? Paid leave expired just as the pandemic became even harder on American workers.

REUTERS/Shannon Stapleton/File Photo(Reuters) - Facebook Inc said on Saturday it will ban advertisements for weapon accessories and protective equipment in the United States with immediate effect until at least two days after U.S. President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20. “We already prohibit ads for weapons, ammunition and weapon enhancements like silencers.

Buzzfeed reported this week that Facebook has been running ads for military equipment next to content promoting election misinformation and news about the violence on Jan. 6. A Facebook company spokesperson said all the pages identified in the Buzzfeed story had been removed, and that the company was working with intelligence and terrorism experts and law enforcement.

REUTERS/Tom Brenner(Reuters) - Analysts at Goldman Sachs Group raised their U.S. growth forecast for the second time this month on expectations that President-elect Joe Biden’s fiscal stimulus plan will hasten the economy’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. The bank expects economic growth of 6.6% in 2021, compared with a previous forecast of 6.4%, according to a report published on Saturday. It also raised forecasts for how much stimulus the new administration will be able to push through in the near-term, to $1.1 trillion from $750 billion. Biden outlined a $1.9 trillion stimulus package proposal on Thursday, saying bold investment was needed to jump-start the economy and accelerate the distribution of vaccines to bring the coronavirus under control. “Larger boosts to disposable income and government spending imply stronger growth later in the year,” the bank’s analysts wrote.

Black Americans are receiving Covid vaccinations at dramatically lower rates than white Americans in the first weeks of the chaotic rollout, according to a new Kaiser Health News analysis. But in every state, Black Americans were significantly underrepresented among people vaccinated so far. Black, Hispanic and Native Americans are dying from Covid at nearly three times the rate of white Americans, according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention analysis. And non-Hispanic Black and Asian health care workers are more likely to contract Covid and to die from it than white workers. Just over half of Black Americans who plan to get the vaccine said they’d wait to see how well it’s working in others before getting it themselves, compared with 36 percent of white Americans.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar told President Donald Trump in a letter this week that the attack on the Capitol could tarnish the legacy of the administration. In the Jan. 12 letter, Azar cited what he called the administration’s successes, including the rapid development of coronavirus vaccines and therapeutics, which he said saved “hundreds of thousands or even millions of American lives.”But, Azar, who will remain on the job until President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20, voiced concern that last week’s mob siege of the Capitol building and Trump’s unfounded claims of widespread voter fraud “threaten to tarnish these and other historic legacies of this administration.”“The attacks on the Capitol were an assault on our democracy and on the tradition of peaceful transitions of power,” Azar wrote in his formal resignation letter.
