The Pfizer vaccine is not only safe, it is also 100% effective in preventing the virus for teenagers between 12 and 15 years of age. The news means that the company will seek emergency use authorization for this age group “in the coming weeks,” with the goal of vaccinating this population “before the start of the next school year.”

The drug has already been approved for emergency use in Americans who are 16 or older. 

“We share the urgency to expand the authorization of our vaccine to use in younger populations and are encouraged by the clinical trial data from adolescents between the ages of 12  and 15,” the CEO of Pfizer said.

All parents have had so much to learn over the last year – about time management, health, and safety, homeschooling, pod-schooling, staycations, you name it. Truthfully, we’re all still learning every day.

We still make a ton of mistakes and often feel like we’re failing. But guess what? We’re not! We parents are not the failures; it’s the system that has failed us.

An Italian mob leader was arrested after being recognized in online cooking videos

An Italian mob leader who has been wanted since 2014 was arrested this week after being found in the Caribbean. 

Authorities were tipped off to Marc Feren Claude Biart’s location after someone recognized him in cooking videos on YouTube. His distinct and unique tattoos are what gave him away, as it helped authorities recognize him immediately. In his attempt to evade authorities, he moved to the Dominican Republic about five years ago and tried to keep a low profile. That is until he started a YouTube Italian cooking channel with his wife.

As it turns out, Biart is still a member of the infamous ‘Ndrangheta – an organized crime unit that is known for its power and brutality. The Italian mob is the only mafia known to have members present on every continent in the world. 

How extensive are the charges against Biart and are Italian authorities having success tracking down other major mafia members during their latest crackdown on the mob?

Whether you’re just starting out or you’re a personal finance pro, there are some lessons (especially those to do with money) that you don’t want to learn by making a mistake.

Some things may seem like common sense at first glance or in hindsight. But life can be so busy, and little things can fall through the cracks—until suddenly, they’re not so little anymore.

This writer’s number one tip? Always have a backup emergency fund. When you’re living paycheck to paycheck, this isn’t always possible. However, by using zero-based budgeting (where you account for every dollar you spend), you may be able to build up an emergency fund over time. 

Trust me, when your dog gets into something he wasn’t supposed to, you’ll want that money. What other tips do you need to know?
