Somali pirates, they are demanding a seven million-dollar ransom1 for a British couple kidnapped from their boat last week. The British Foreign Office says it will not meet the pirates’ demand for money in return for the release of Rachel and Paul Chandler.

More cases of the H1N1 flu to report this weekend, but we can also report more of the vaccine2 to deal with H1N1. Forty-eight states now reporting widespread flu activity, that’s two more states than we had a week ago. Also, more than twenty-six million doses of H1N1 vaccine are now available in the US. That is ten more million than we had just a week ago. However, it’s still far less than the government predicted. There have been some production delays. It has affected3 the supply.

Now the White House is now telling us who is visiting the president’s home and we will, too, see this list.
Yes, around a hundred thousand people visit the White House each month, so a pretty big list. Now, when we talk about the list of folks, this doesn’t just include the folks over there to visit the president and visit his advisors4. When we talk about people who just come through and take a tour of the White House. Anybody you know, they had officially log-in.

Two radically5 different views on the effects of the stimulus6 this weekend, President Obama credits the plan for saving nearly a million jobs so far. In his weekly address, he sees signs of recovery.
“The economy grew for the first time in more than a year and faster than at any point in the preview two years. So while we have a long way to go before we return to prosperity. And there will undoubtedly7 be ups and downs along the road. It’s also true that we’ve come a long way. It is easy to forget that it was only several months ago that the economy was shrinking rapidly and many economists8 feared another Great Depression.”

Now the Republicans not so impressed in their own address this weekend, they say the Democrats’ plan for the economy of health care will lead to more taxes and fewer jobs.

Also President Obama has extended benefits for HIV/AIDS patients across this country. He signed a Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Bill at the White House yesterday. It authorizes9 a five percent yearly bumping federal funding for the treatment of hundreds of thousands of underinsured and low income patients. The CDC says around a million people in the US are living with HIV.
