NPR's XX reports, election officials are continuing to tally hundreds of thousands of mail in ballots across Pennsylvania, Nevada, Georgia, and North Carolina, two days after the election.
  Biden says he has no doubt that he and his running mate Senator Kamala Harris will win the presidency. He's also urging the nation to be patient as the remaining votes are being counted.
  "I ask everyone to stay calm, all people to stay calm. The process is working. The count is being completed. We'll know very soon."
  Biden continues to lead Trump in number of electoral votes needed to win the presidency, but the race could still go either way. In the meantime, the Trump campaign has filed lawsuits in Pennsylvania and Nevada, citing a lack of transparency at the polls.

Appointed Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler will face Democrat Raphael Warnock. The other is for a seat held by Republican Senator David Perdue, who's in a close race against Democrat Jon Ossoff. Both are still being counted, but a runoff seams likely. Republicans are on track to hold 50 seats, Democrats 48. That means the two Georgia races could affect who controls the Senate.


[02:26.5-02:45.6]
4.  Fewer Americans are filing first time jobless claims last week though today's numbers come ahead the far more important numbers due out tomorrow. The Labor Department is announcing today the first time jobless claims last week fell by 7000 with seasonally adjusted 751,000 the week ending October 31st.

That provides /applied rather, provides the infrastructure to allow consumers and business to pay directly from their bank accounts.

The company's refinery in Louisiana didn't fit with that vision. The refinery employs about 637 people turning crude oil into gasoline, diesel and other fuels. Globally Shell is closing and selling more than half of its refineries. It's only keeping facilities that make plastics as well as fuels.
