Biden's new official presidential Twitter account follows just 12 other profiles. The accounts @POTUS follows are all White House figures, except celebrity Chrissy Teigen. President Joe Biden took over the official presidential Twitter account, @POTUS, on Wednesday, and currently follows just 12 accounts. She seemed genuinely surprised when another user pointed out that the @POTUS account had followed her later that day. The rest of the accounts that the official presidential Twitter follows are other members of the Biden administration, the White House Spanish-language Twitter account, first lady Jill Biden, and second gentleman Douglas Emhoff.

Raphael Warnock won a runoff election to become just the 11th Black U.S. senator in history and only the second Black senator from the South since Reconstruction. Revels’s path to the United States Senate coursed through the sacred pulpits of the Black church and the towering bluffs of a military encampment along the Mississippi River. Illinois has been home to three: Carol Moseley Braun, the first Black woman to be a U.S. senator, Barack Obama and Roland Burris. This is the history that Raphael Warnock stepped into when he declared his run for the Senate. Warnock recognized the unique obstacles and hazards that Black politicians and Democrats face in Southern states that have been reliably Republican for decades.

To the Editor:On Wednesday Joseph R. Biden Jr. will be sworn in as our 46th president. Imagine news conferences based on facts, addresses to the nation meant to promote harmony and unity, a world awaiting renewed outreach and cooperation, all leading to a better tomorrow. I no longer fear the future. I welcome it, revel in its promises and believe in its dreams. In the process he divided our country, our families and our friendships, but hopefully not forever.

Militiamen showed up proudly bearing the emblems of their groups — American flags with the stars replaced by the Roman numeral III, patches that read “Oath Keepers.” Alt-right types wore Pepe the Frog masks, and QAnon adherents could be seen in T-shirts urging people to “Trust the Plan.” White supremacists brought their variant of the Crusader cross. And then there were thousands of Trump supporters with MAGA gear — flags, hats, T-shirts, thermoses, socks. One flag portrayed President Trump as Rambo; another featured him riding a Tyrannosaurus rex and carrying the kind of rocket-propelled grenade launcher seen on the streets of Mogadishu or Kandahar. The iconography of the American far right was on display on Jan 6. during the violence at the Capitol. The absurdity of many images — the patches that read “Zombie Outbreak Response Team," for instance — only masked a devotion that inspired hundreds from the crowd to mount a deadly attack on Congress.

ET Capitol Riot Live Updates: Trump Urges No Violence or Vandalism at Planned Demonstrations The fallout from last week’s attack on the Capitol continued as the Army secretary announced that the inauguration would be secured by armed National Guard members. “In lights of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind,” Mr. Trump said. For President Trump, the past week has included a flurry of rebukes from businesses and once-loyal politicians. A majority of House members vote to impeach. Mayor Bill de Blasio said New York City is ending its contracts with the Trump Organization after the deadly riot incited by President Trump at the U.S. Capitol.

SoFi is worried about the future of student debtWhile SoFi has broadened its offering to including saving, investing, and trading, the company got its start focusing on refinancing student loans. A key stipulation of the CARES Act was the forbearance of federal student loans beginning March. That's to say nothing of Biden's proposal to cancel a minimum of $10,000 in federal student loans after he takes office. Apart from student debt cancellation, the COVID-19 pandemic has also led to lower potential students enrolling in college, meaning lower volumes of loan origination for SoFi.

The lions of London’s Trafalgar Square were barricaded off, as was Red Square in Moscow and Madrid’s Puerta del Sol. Some cities planned, like Sydney, to launch fireworks over empty streets. In Australia, where Sydney’s fireworks annually serve as the world’s first big visual display of the new year, gatherings were banned and internal borders shut.

Since 1907, the ball has been dropping in Times Square to ring in the new year. The annual celebration brings together people from around the world, huddling under the cold New York City air as they watch the ball drop from One Times Square. The first ball drop took place in 1907 — it used to be lowered down the flagpole by six men and a pulley system. In a normal year, over 1 million people pack into New York City's Times Square to revel in the new year. 2021 marks the 114th anniversary of the ball drop, the tradition of watching a glowing ball — technically it's an icosahedral geodesic sphere — slide down a pole until midnight.

The UK and the European Union have finally struck a Brexit trade deal. The two sides now face a race against time to put the free trade deal into law before the New Year. The trade deal will allow tariff-free trade to continue between the UK and the EU, but Brits can eventually expect widespread new barriers to trade and travel with the European continent. What will the trade deal mean for the UK? It is for these reasons that departing the EU with a trade deal is still set to leave the UK significantly worse off.

LIKE OH SO many things related to the holidays, the ugly Christmas sweater craze was once a far quainter phenomenon. You can buy a meta ugly sweater that says “Ugly Sweater.” Jewish merrymakers can buy Chanukah sweaters with glistening dreidels on the front. Though Christmas sweaters were always garish, they weren’t always so inane. You can now find ugly Christmas sweaters highlighting everything from NFL teams to dramatic movies to alcohol companies. But many so-called Christmas sweaters sold today seem only tenuously connected to the holiday.

Huawei has worked with at least four partner companies to develop surveillance technologies that claim to monitor people by ethnicity, The Washington Post reported Saturday. Last week, The Post reported that Huawei in 2018 had tested a "Uighur alarm" — an AI facial recognition tool that claimed to identify members of the largely Muslim minority group and alert Chinese authorities. Huawei told the The Post that the tool was "simply a test," but according to Saturday's report, Huawei has developed multiple such tools. The reports add to growing concern over China's extensive surveillance and oppression of Uyghurs and other minority groups, as well as increasing use of racially discriminatory surveillance tools and practices by US law enforcement. "We provide general-purpose ICT [information and communication technology] products based on recognized industry standards."

One of the sources said a final decision on whether to bring the suit should be made in less than 90 days. In Ecuador, according to U.S. court documents, Vitol bribed two unnamed unidentified officials to steer a shipment of Petroecuador fuel oil to a third company. The documents did not indicate whether any OTI officials knew of the arrangement between Vitol and Petroecuador. In 2020, OTI was rebranded OQ Trading and fully integrated into Omani state oil company OQ. The trading arm of Mexico’s state-run oil company Pemex has temporarily suspended all business with Vitol, according to a letter seen by Reuters on Thursday.

BALLINA, Ireland — Some 3,000 miles east of Delaware, nestled inland from Ireland's wild Atlantic coast, lies the small town of Ballina, the ancestral home of President-elect Joe Biden. Blewitt emigrated after the Irish Potato Famine of the 1840s to Biden's birthplace of Scranton, Pennsylvania, now a sister city of Ballina. Clodagh Kilcoyne / ReutersBut Biden's Irish roots, although a boon for Ballina, may be causing some in London to bristle. After officially leaving in January this year, Johnson's government is now in the midst of negotiating a trade deal with the bloc. Biden has cautioned London to honor the 1998 agreement or there could be no separate post-Brexit U.S. trade deal, which Westminster craves.
