The Justice Department has hired eleven specialized coordinators to help develop national standards to address missing and slain Native American women. The Trump administration released a report Thursday outlining the work of a task force created under an executive order.

The group met with tribal leaders and helped set the standards applicable to new and unsolved cases of missing or murdered people in Native American communities. The task force is establishing a framework to help connect local and federal law enforcement officials to clear up any jurisdictional issues that could arise in the cases.

The work is expected to continue for another year.

The stock market was set for a lower open this morning, as the wait for additional stimulus continued. Dow futures pointed toward a 200-point loss while the other two major averages also indicated decreases early Friday.

It remains to be seen how Republicans and Democrats will set aside their differences on funding for state and local governments, direct payments, and other forms of unemployment assistance.

The impasse continues at a time when more and more Americans are filing initial claims for unemployment. In last week’s government report, there were 853,000 new claims.

If you’re looking for home gym equipment options for your at-home winter workouts, we have the list for you.

One of the most popular pieces of equipment of the year is the rowing machine. Rowing is great for your cardiovascular health, and most rowing machines don’t take up a lot of space in your home. And while it’s not a total body workout, rowing still works your lower body as you fight to power each stroke.

Another option to add to your home gym is simple, yet most people don’t even think about it: a nice exercise mat. You can get a variety of mats, including some that are soft and padded to help with your joints, and even smart mats that can talk to you during your workout. Either way, an exercise mat is a staple for the gym and your knees and back will thank you later. What else should you add to your home gym for your winter workouts?

Check out the full list here, and start building your DIY roadside emergency kit!
