Former President Barack Obama said that he will take a Covid-19 vaccine once one is available and may film it to build confidence about safety.

“I will be taking it and I may take it on TV or have it filmed so people know that I trust this science,” he told SiriusXM’s “The Joe Madison Show” during an interview. “What I don’t trust is getting Covid.”

Numerous polls find many Americans are skeptical about getting a Covid-19 vaccine, potentially jeopardizing U.S. vaccination efforts to control the pandemic.

The reluctance or refusal to get vaccinated has been a growing problem in the U.S. long before the pandemic started. Medical experts point to a long-debunked

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell doubled down on his targeted approach to COVID-19 relief Thursday, but remained optimistic about a coronavirus deal.

Mr. McConnell, Kentucky Republican, said it was “heartening” to see Democrats endorse a compromise proposal this week, but there are still too many outstanding issues to be negotiated.

“There are many important policies that have strong bipartisan support. There are many others that do not. And the way to help the country is to finally let the former group be signed into law while we keep arguing about the rest,” he said. “Here in the Senate, I put forward a serious and highly targeted relief proposal including the elements which we know the President is ready and willing to sign into law.”

“Compromise is within reach. We know where we agree. We can do this…let’s be about actually making law,” he said.

The latest proposal from Mr. McConnell,

Matt D’Amico, who owns the Maxx Fitness Clubzz franchises in Lincoln and Warren, opened as usual on Monday, however, and has remained open since then. He said that closing would be financially devastating.

“We did it in March, and the shutdown lasted 10, 12 weeks. I just can’t survive it again,” D’Amico said. “It’s not about profitability — it’s landlords, equipment rentals, payroll, and staff. And, I don’t think it’s right, when everyone else gets to stay open.”

The Health Department issued $500 fines at both locations and ordered the facilities to close immediately and stay closed until the restrictions are lifted.

But D’Amico has refused to shut down. Both Maxx locations were open and busy on Wednesday.

“You can say we’re fighting for freedom. It’s what it is,” D’Amico said. “I invested millions of dollars.”

Raimondo ordered the two-week pause in an attempt to stem the rising wave of

  • Senior Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer approached the GOP’s Mitch McConnell with a secretive COVID-19 stimulus bill proposal on Monday night, The Washington Post reported.
  • The move came just before lawmakers unveiled a bipartisan $908 billion proposal, which moderately increases proposed GOP spending. 
  • Speaker Pelosi said that the “private” proposal was also sent to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. There are no details on what it contains.
  • However, after a day of competing proposals on Tuesday, McConnell appeared to settle on a version close to the GOP’s original demands for a small stimulus bill.
  • Congress has only a few weeks to finalize any stimulus plans — and also has to deal with a looming government shutdown.
  • The prospect of sending a

Main Street has been clamoring for a new round of federal relief, with 83% of small business owners in the latest CNBC|SurveyMonkey Small Business Confidence Survey saying they would support a new economic stimulus package to help individuals and businesses impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. On Tuesday, after months of stalled talks between Capitol Hill and the White House and as coronavirus cases reach daily new highs, Congress unveiled a new stimulus proposal that seems tailored to meet the dire needs of small businesses across the country, though it was quickly shot down by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. 

In what would be a boon for small business owners, a

Fact: As of November 18, 2020, there were 55,326,907 confirmed cases of Covid-19 globally, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). 

Also, fact: I count myself among one of those 55 million.

It goes without saying, my experience is far from unique. During week one, I had mild symptoms. During week two, my condition worsened and I checked into the hospital. Luckily, like most people who contract COVID-19, I’ve mostly recovered.

But the soul searching I did during those rough moments stayed with me. While times of uncertainty can be stressful and even scary, I find that they force us to take a step back and look at the big picture. For me, I started considering the “why” — what’s the point of my life? 

While family takes the undisputed first place, my company, JotForm, is
