Joe Biden and Kamala [[ COMMA-lah ]] Harris are getting ready to become President and Vice President. They're set to be sworn in just outside the Capitol. Biden was previously Vice President under former President Barack Obama while Harris was a senator from California.       President Trump is wishing the new administration great luck and success. He made those comments during a farewell ceremony at Joint Base Andrews, but did not mention Biden by name. Trump is now in Florida to begin his post-White House life.       Democrats will take control of the Senate today after the swearing in of two new senators from Georgia. Soon-to-be Vice President Kamala [[ COMMA-lah ]] Harris will swear in Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff this afternoon following the inauguration ceremonies.       Today marks one year since the first coronavirus case was reported in the U.S. The report came from Washington state.

Madrid Mayor Jose Luis Martinez-Almeida told reporters a gas leak may have caused today's blast which pretty much destroyed a building on Toledo Street. Sources tell TeleMadrid the building is used to house Catholic priests and also includes offices, meeting rooms, and a reception center.       Mortgage refinance applications are down five-percent after interest rates rose to their highest level in two months.
