When it comes to protection against the COVID Omicron [[ ahm ih cron ]] variant, Pfizer says a third dose of its vaccine should do the trick. At the same time, the drugmaker is developing an Omicron-specific vaccine that it predicts will be ready by March. Pfizer reports today a booster shot provides the same protection against Omicron as the previous two doses did against earlier variants.       Amazon is hoping for a much better day today after a huge outage disrupted services across a wide array of businesses yesterday. Those trying to sell on Amazon were having trouble accessing Seller Center, which is used to manage orders. Trading app Robinhood and cryptocurrency exchange site Coinbase were among those reporting issues.       The public eye is on Minnesota as a former cop charged with manslaughter goes on trial. Opening statements begin today, with ex-police officer Kim Potter charged with killing a young Black man earlier this year. Potter says she mistook her gun for her taser when she shot 20-year-old Daunte Wright.       [[ note nature ]]       There's more disturbing testimony in the New York sex trafficking trial of the woman accused of recruiting minors for the late Jeffrey Epstein to sexually abuse. A third accuser, identified only as Carolyn, said she was fourteen-years-old and a highly vulnerable drug abuser when Ghislaine [[ GHEE-lane ]] Maxwell brought her to Epstein's Palm Beach, Florida, home for so-called massages. Carolyn also testified that she was paid 300-dollars each of the 100 times she showed up.       Mortgage applications are rising. The Mortgage Bankers Association says they jumped two-percent last week. A top official from the M-B-A says a decline in mortgage rates led to more borrowers looking to refinance.       New York City police officers have caught up with a man they say set fire to a 50-foot Christmas tree outside Fox News headquarters overnight. The flames charred much of the tree and also did damage to some other smaller trees nearby that were lit up for the holiday season. Police say the man acted alone and the incident doesn't appear to be politically motivated.
