President Trump is flying to Florida after bidding farewell to the White House and the Washington, DC area. Trump first flew to Joint Base Andrews where he delivered remarks to supporters. Trump listed his accomplishments in office and joked to the crowd "we were not a regular administration."        Joe Biden is ready to move forward with many executive orders right after he's sworn in today. Incoming White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain says Biden will sign orders today returning the U.S. to the Paris climate agreement and one that reverses President Trump's travel ban on a number of Muslim majority nations. Biden also will sign an order directing the Education Department to extend a pause on federal student loan payments and interest.       Democrats take control of the U.S. Senate late today. New Democratic Senators Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff will be sworn-in after recently winning runoff elections in Georgia. That puts the Senate in an even, 50-50 split but Democrats have the edge with new Vice President Kamala [[ COMMA-lah ]] Harris available to cast tiebreaking votes.        A model from the University of Washington projects more than 566-thousand coronavirus deaths by May 1st. That comes after Johns Hopkins University reported the U.S. death toll passed 400-thousand yesterday.       Children who are still learning English might have to return to school in the next few weeks to take a federally required test despite the risk of COVID-19. The annual test to gauge the nation's five-million English learners' ability to read and speak English is given shortly after winter break. Many, if not most, of those students have been taught online during the pandemic but the test most states use can't be done remotely.        You still have time to buy your lottery tickets. Tonight's Powerball jackpot is an estimated 730-million-dollars. The cash value is 546-million.
