Remember Bid on the Phone but watch here:  LIVE on O-N TV

New video shows WNBA star Brittney Griner on a plane before her release to U.S. custody. Griner appeared relatively healthy and said she was "happy," after someone off-camera asked about her mood. She went on to say she was ready for her flight.        The market is closing higher as investors eyes stay focus on the Federal Reserve. The central bank will hold its tow day meeting next week and is expected to announce another rate hike at the end of it.

The Nasdaq went up 123 points to 11-082.       President Biden is announcing 36-billion dollars in financial relief to prevent pension cuts for union workers. While speaking alongside Labor Secretary Marty Walsh and union leaders, the President said the funds will cover more than 100 employers and hundreds of thousands of union workers and retirees. Biden said the pension plans were facing steep cuts.        Anyone who's gone to a drugstore recently can tell you that getting your hands on medication can be difficult, thanks to this surge in COVID and flu cases. Doctors say you don't need anything fancy. Dr. Jessica Sols-McCarthy with the University of Texas health system says a hot shower and a humidifier can help clear up those stuffy noses.        A scathing Congressional report claims the NFL's Washington Commanders hid decades of sexual misconduct. A U.S. House Committee released its report that zeroed in on team owner Dan Snyder. The report says Snyder allowed pervasive sexual harassment by team executives of female employees.        Inflation is lighting up the cost of your Christmas decorations.
