A mosaic image of asteroid Bennu, composed of 12 PolyCam images collected on December 2, 2018 by the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft from a range of 15 miles (24 km). NASA/Goddard/University of Arizona/Handout via REUTERSA NASA spacecraft, which scientists believe has collected samples from an asteroid, began its two-year journey back to Earth on Monday. NASA's OSIRIS-REx spacecraft is attempting to complete a mission to visit Bennu, a skyscraper-sized asteroid some 200 million miles (320 million km) from Earth, survey the surface, collect samples and deliver them back to Earth. The spacecraft will then eject a capsule containing the asteroid samples, which NASA says will land in a remote area of Utah. The roughly $800 million, minivan-sized OSIRIS-REx spacecraft, built by Lockheed Martin, launched in 2016 to grab and return the first U.S. sample of pristine asteroid materials.

So there are a lot of jobs out there, there is just still not a lot of labor supply." "Insane difficulties with supply chain with parts – over the whole range of parts. The soaring prices were triggered by a combination of reduced supply amid pandemic shutdowns and surging demand for new homes.

Gavin Newsom said on Monday the state has an unexpected $75 billion budget surplus. Newsom said he plans on giving the surplus back to residents in the form of stimulus aid and debt relief. The "Golden State Stimulus" may send $600 checks to middle-income people and $500 checks to families with dependents. Instead it has a $75 billion surplus, and that could mean stimulus payments for Californians. "We are tripling the Golden State Stimulus to get money in the hands of more middle-class Californians who have been hit hard by this pandemic."

House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy announced that his caucus will vote on Wednesday on whether to recall Rep. Liz Cheney from leadership. McCarthy argued that Cheney's criticism of Trump and the GOP's election lies had become a distraction. He simultaneously argued that Republicans "embrace free thought and debate." Cheney, the House GOP conference chair and third-highest ranking member, has accused many of her fellow Republicans of lying about voter fraud and the election being "rigged" by Democrats.

GREENVILLE, S.C.—The pandemic is accelerating growth in midsize cities, positioning them to lead the charge in the nation’s economic rebound. Even before Covid-19, these rising stars—such as Greenville, Des Moines, Iowa, and Provo, Utah—had been quietly building out vibrant economies in the shadow of bigger metropolises. During the pandemic, they have drawn workers and businesses with large and affordable homes, ample access to outdoor space and less congestion. They also have a mix of high-tech jobs and old-line industries, including manufacturing and finance, that turned out to be more resistant to the downturn. But the economies in some of these smaller metro areas have staying power.

The kits contain needles, gauze pads and other supplies for vaccinators, including varying combinations of special syringes and regular ones. Sometimes administrators run out of the special syringes and have to use the standard, less-efficient alternatives, leaving doses to go to waste. “We worry about it all the time,” said Erin Fox, a drug-shortage expert and pharmacist who is helping administer shots at the University of Utah. A Department of Health and Human Services spokeswoman acknowledged that there was limited supply of the special syringes. The federal government will provide more special syringes for Moderna shots to states in the coming weeks, she said.

REUTERS/George FreyMassachusetts sued a unit of French advertising company Publicis Groupe SA (PUBP.PA) on Thursday, accusing it of fueling the U.S. opioid epidemic by using unfair and deceptive marketing to help the drugmaker Purdue Pharma sell more OxyContin. She said Publicis collected more than $50 million from Purdue alone, including for efforts to "humanize" opioids and make doctors prescribe them to a wider pool of patients. read moreThe U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said nearly 500,000 people died from opioid overdoses from 1999 to 2019.
