On Sunday, a group of 20 people left Puerto de Mariel, in Cuba. By Wednesday evening, their boat capsized off the Florida coast, leaving at least two people dead. 

On Thursday afternoon, eight of the passengers were rescued about 16 miles away from Key West, according to officials, but 10 more people are still missing.

According to the Key West command center supervisor, Senior Chief Seth Haynes: “Our responders are focused on the search for survivors. We will continue to search … for those reported missing, and if any mariners see or hear anything, to render assistance if possible and contact the Coast Guard.”

What else do we know about the search and rescue efforts so far?

This U.S.-China trade deal is already going under and it’s only phase one

As the trade deal between the U.S. and China runs into its second year, Chinese purchases are still running short of the agreed amount, according to the U.S.-based Peterson Institute for International Economics.

The two-year agreement is set to end in December. Chinese purchases of U.S. goods fell more than 40% short in 2020, according to the institute.

The two sides reached the phase one agreement after trade tensions escalated under former U.S. President Donald Trump, who sought to reduce the trade deficit with China. However, that trade gap has only increased amid the pandemic, which prompted more U.S. imports of face masks and other goods. Now, talks have stalled.

On May 29, 1942, Bing Crosby recorded the world’s best-selling single of all time: “White Christmas.”

The iconic holiday favorite set a Guinness World Record for selling 50 million copies, taking home the title of the best-selling Christmas song of all-time in addition to the world’s best-selling single. 

Crosby first performed the song on Christmas day in 1941 during the Kraft Music Hall radio show, and the crooner’s rendition of the song became an instant hit with fans around the world. 

And while many consider the song a heartfelt, feel-good Christmas anthem, the song actually has a pretty dark and sad back story.
