    AP FACT CHECK: Biden's shaky claims on job growth, gas costs

    Boasting that government policies can make a difference in improving the economy, President Joe Biden went too far Thursday in taking credit for job growth since taking office. Jeffery Born, an energy-markets expert at Northeastern University, said current gasoline prices are partly a result of production and refining capacity that was knocked offline by Hurricane Ida and other factors – even a shortage of tanker drivers.

    Brady, Gronk still a winning combination for SB champs

    The prolific duo — now in their second seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after nine highly successful years in New England — moved ahead of Steve Young and Jerry Rice into third place on the NFL’s career list for regular-season TDs by a passing combo during last week’s 31-29 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. Brady threw for 379 yards and four TDs, including a pair to Gronkowski, who has been on the receiving end of a TD pass from the 44-year-old quarterback 86 times during the tight end’s stellar career with the Patriots and Bucs. Hall of Famers Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison (112) and Philip Rivers and Antonio Gates (89) have combined to reach the end zone more often during the regular season.

    Bahamas head to polls in close election overshadowed by COVID-19

    Prime Minister Hubert Minnis of the Free National Movement (FNM) is hoping to become the first premier in 24 years to win a second five-year term. The PLP has focused its campaign on what it says is the government's mishandling of the COVID-19 outbreak and the economy which has seen unemployment surge to an estimated 20% and the fiscal deficit balloon during the pandemic. Julian Rolle, chairman of the Public Hospitals Authority, told Bahamian media it had become difficult to staff healthcare facilities properly given about 5-10 percent of staff was quarantined due to exposure to the virus.
