The nation's economy added more jobs than expected in November. The Labor Department says 263-thousand jobs were created last month. That's more than the 200-thousand experts had predicted.       A senior adviser to Ukrainian President Zelensky says as many as 13-thousand Ukrainian soldiers have been killed since Russian troops invaded the country in February. Zelensky's aide said between ten-thousand and 13-thousand troops have died fighting the Russians. Neither Ukraine nor Russia release much in the way of casualty numbers and Ukraine's military hasn't confirmed or denied the estimate.       New details are being released about President Biden's meeting with the Prince and Princess of Wales in Boston. He'll greet the royals at the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum this afternoon. It's one of several stops William and Kate have planned today.       A web designer who won't make a wedding website for same-sex couples is taking her case to the Supreme Court.

She's an evangelical Christian and argues that Colorado's anti-discrimination law violates her free speech rights by forcing her to express messages that go against her beliefs.       Researchers at the University of Houston have developed what they call a fentanyl vaccine.
