is in a dead heat just hours before polls are set to open there. it's a race with national implications, no doubt reliably blue, at least in recent history president biden won there just a year ago by ten points and the democratic candidate, terry mcauliffe, held a lead in the polls until just a few weeks ago. the republican, glenn youngkin, has been steadily gaining on him. the real clear politics average of recent polls shows mcauliffe with about 47% of the vote youngkin pulling ahead with 48.5%. but of course, with the margin of error, it's a dead heat the outcome of the election could indicate what's to come in the midterms across the country, potentially, in a year from now. control of congress is at stake. democrats, currently, hold the house and the senate at 50-50 with vice president harris as the tie-breaking vote. political experts are billing the virginia race as a referendum on president biden's term, thus far
they say if republicans get the upset there, they'll seize on that momentum going into the next year elections. mcauliffe and youngkin making their last-minute pitches to voters up and down virginia today, and the money is pouring in much of it, from out of state. the campaigns have raised -- look at that -- a whopping $115 million according to the virginia public access project that makes it the most expensive governor's race in the state's history. nearly 20% of that money from outside groups in a moment, steve kornacki breaks down the latest numbers for us from the big board. first, cnbc's senior white house correspondent, dkayla tausche live on the campaign trail in fairfax, virginia, tonight. >> hi, shep. well, terry mcauliffe is about to take the stage here in virginia to make his final pitch to retake the reigns of the state he ran until 2018 but just three hours south, businessman glenn youngkin is trying to mount a stunning defeat in the
most watched race in the nation. from richmond -- >> we have 36 hours to close this thing out >> reporter: to roanoke. >> so, get out there let's go vote. game on! >> reporter: candidates are crisscrossing the commonwealth on election eve. former-governor terry mcauliffe trying to shore up support in dense cities warning outsider glenn youngkin could usher in president trump's second era. >> i am running against -- i like to say donald trump in khakis or a sweater vest >> reporter: youngkin, meanwhile, trying to swing suburban voters frustrated by school closures and government mandates that message appears to be landing. lik likely voters surveyed by fox news now giving youngkin an eight-point edge on education and polling averages in the last week, shifting to favor youngkin attempting the high-wire act of wooing trump voters while avoiding direct affiliation with the former president mr. trump hosting a tele-rally tonight. youngkin will not attend mcauliffe also having to balance president biden's low approval
and stalled agenda with the turnout power of the democratic party's biggest names. >> so, virginia, show up >> reporter: mr. biden won virginia by ten points in 2020 nearly double the margin of hillary clinton and president obama. republicans haven't won a statewide race since 2009 but voters say the issues are different now. >> i have eight grandchildren, so of course the school issue is a huge thing here in virginia. i would tend to look at the issues and the person, the integrity of the person, and we do a lot of research on the person running make sure they are one that says what they're going to do >> reporter: early voting ended saturday but roughly half of all voters here in virginia say they plan to vote in person on election day tomorrow. shep. >> kayla, thank you. steve kornacki's at the big board now. steve, tomorrow really shaping up to be likely a very long night for you. what are you watching for in
virginia >> looking very suspenseful, shep here it is y just heard from kayla there. when donald trump was president, it got a lot bluer you see he lost the state by ten points why did it get so much bluer it's because of the suburbs of washington, d.c. the suburbs of richmond. big, densely-populated areas that was the epicenter of the trump backlash in virginia republicans lost a ton of ground in these areas during donald trump's presidency this is a huge question tomorrow night. i am going to be watching how much of those trump-era gains can democrats, can terry mcauliffe hold onto in the suburbs in virginia? how many inroads can glenn youngkin and the republicans make because if youngkin can make enough inroads in these suburbs, he could win the state if youngkin wins the state doing that, republicans all across the country, i guarantee you, are taking notes because that would be a recipe that could be exported potentially outside virginia for the 2022 midterm
elections. >> you know, steve, kayla mentioned mcauliffe's really having to contend with president biden's sinking approval ratings. there is a new polling on that, right? how bad is it? >> nbc poll here election eve in virginia here's joe biden's approval rating nationally. look at that 42% for the president. low 40s. now, well over 50% on the disapproval rating if you break this down by party here, you zoom right in on independent voters biden under 40 approval. mid-50s on the disapproval by the way, if you just looked at virginia which is voting tomorrow and you looked at biden's average-approval rating in virginia polling, that sits not much better. just 45% we also asked here on some issues where did democrats have the advantage on the issues right now? the coronavirus comes to mind. climate change two issues where democrats have an advantage but whetn we ask on which party you refer prefer on these issues, here is the republican edge this one, i will circle it for
you but it should jump out at you. the economy. look at that in our poll, by an 18-point margin that's what that means voters say they would rather have the republicans handling the economy than the democrats that is a powerful issue advantage for the republicans, especially with biden's approval rating so low. >> kornacki, thank you we will have full coverage of the vote tomorrow night here on the news as polls close in virginia 7:00 eastern. cnbc new fallout tonight over the vaccine mandates in two of america's largest cities in chicago, a judge just temporarily blocked city officials from requiring cops to get a covid shot by the end of the year but the city can still put cops on unpaid leave if they don't confirm their vaccination status the judge ruled city officials in chicago can't fire cops until they arbitrate the policy with police unions. here is chicago's police superintendent dave brown. >> we are proceeding with our -- um -- protocol to get officers
in the portal, and to ensure that if they are not vaccinated, that we make the case that vaccination saves lives. and/or testing twice a week. >> that's chicago. in new york city, mayor bill de blasio says about 9,000 public-city workers are now on unpaid leave for refusing to comply with new york city's vaccine mandate. stats show the number of city workers who have been vaccinated in the last two weeks is up significantly. but some first responders ar pushing back roughly 2,300 firefighters called out sick just today as the new policy took effect that's more than a fifth of all firefighters, citywide data shows about 81% of the fire department workers have received at least one dose. cnbc's valerie castro live tonight outside a firehouse in pr brooklyn valerie, are we seeing impact from this? >> shep, new york city mayor
bill de blasio says even though thousands of city workers are on unpaid leave for failing to comply with this man date, he says there are no disruptions to any city services but this morning, the fire department says hundreds of members called out sick and firehouses around the city are feeling the strain. >> there are understaffed units and that understaffing could end immediately if members stopped going sick when they weren't sick and we hope that ends very soon. >> we have sick leave for a reason we have sick leave for people who are actually sick but when a city employee fakes it, and puts other people's lives in danger, that's a serious thing and there is going to be consequences for that >> reporter: the unions that represent the fire department says short deadline to comply has left members with not enough time to submit religious or medical exemptions or consider other life-changing decisions, like retirement. and they say, given the low rate of infection within the department, the rush to mandate
is unfair. >> if you were telling me the fourth wave was coming, we could understand the urgency but there is none. the covid rate of the fdny right now is less than one-half of 1%. >> the unions say there is no coordinated sick out and, instead, says many members are out sick after getting the vaccine to comply with the mandate and are now feeling some side effects as for other city agencies, the department of sanitation is at 83%. they have actually extended shifts to pick up any slack and sanitation workers were actually out yesterday picking up garbage on a sunday. that is outside of the normal schedule just to make sure there was no disruption. shep. >> valerie, the air force already taking action against the unvaccinated there >> reporter: that's right, shep. the air force has a deadline for all of the active-duty service members to be vaccinated by tomorrow right now, about 97% have gotten at least one dose. but today, the air force announced it was letting go of 40 recruits.
about half of those were going through basic training they will be allowed to re-enlist once they are vaccinated shep. >> valerie castro live in new york city. protestors gather outside the supreme court. inside, justices hear arguments about that texas abortion law. why two conservative members seem a little skeptical. world leaders address climate change, promising action and change but not every country showed up and not every body is buying the message. and the head of one of britain's biggest banks steps down the report ending his relationship with the convicted sex offender, jeffrey epstein. ♪ limu emu & doug ♪ got a couple of bogeys on your six, limu. they need customized car insurance from liberty mutual so they only pay for what they need. what do you say we see what this bird can do?
woooooooooooooo... we are not getting you a helicopter. looks like we're walking, kid. only pay for what you need. ♪ liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪ there appears to be new hope for abortion rights advocates tonight out of the supreme court. even some conservative justices seemed to be -- to observers to be siding with the lawyers
challenging that texas abortion ban. the law forbids all abortions after about six weeks. no exception for rape or incest. but the oral argument today wasn't really about abortion at all. it was about the unique mechanism that texas devised to enforce the law. the way it's written, the enforcer isn't the state it's any private citizen they are allowed to sue abortion providers or people who help someone get an abortion and win $10,000 in damages justice brett kavanaugh asking whether that kind of scheme, as he put it, could let a state violate other parts of the constitution by using the same enforcement mechanism. >> it could be free speech rights it could be free exercise of religion rights. it could be second amendment rights if this position is accepted here, the theory of the amicus brief is that it can be easily replicated in other states that disfavor other constitutional rights. >> then, there's justice
clarence thomas indicating texas may be overreaching saying just because those private citizens may be outraged over abortions doesn't give them grounds to sue. and justice amy coney barrett focusing on part of the law that restricts abortion providers from being able to fully defend themselves when they're sued supreme court reporter, amy howe is with us now co-founder and former editor of the scotus blog. amy, thanks so much. the conservative activists were active in question today did they, in your estimation, at all tip their hand >> you know, i think they did and -- and as many of your viewers may remember, there were four votes back in september to put this law on hold chief justice john roberts and the court's three liberal justices so, the abortion providers, the plaintiffs in this case, only needed to pick up one vote and it looks like they may have picked up two or possibly even
three of the -- their conservative colleagues. >> and this is all about process really justice kavanaugh asked if texas can do this for abortion, could another state do it to, say, restrict gun rights? what did you make of that line of discussion? >> that's right. i mean, the -- the justices -- there -- there were two cases. and so, one of them was the case brought by abortion providers. and the question that the justices agreed to decide was not whether or not s.b. 8 was constitutional, this ban on abortion starting at six weeks but whether or not a state can effectively insulate this law from review by outsourcing enforcement to private citizens. and some of the conservative justices really seemed uncomfortable precisely because they realized that this works both ways. after the supreme court, back in september, refused to block enforcement of the texas law, some of the other states, like
florida, were looking around at the possibility of enacting similar bans and the providers in their briefs of the supreme court warned that it could be used for voting rights or campaign finance but conservatives, i think, realized that it could also be used for gun rights, for the free exercise of religion, for the first amendment. and justice kavanaugh asked about a scenario in which a state could enact a law that allows private citizens to sue someone who sells an ar-15 for a million dollars he said and if they used a -- an enforcement mechanism like the one in this law, would someone be able to go to court -- to federal court -- and challenge it and the lawyer representing texas essentially said no. >> yeah. amy, a slippery slope said one amy howe, it's so good of you. thanks for being here. president biden today apologized to world leaders. apologized for his predecessor's decision to pull the united
states out of the paris climate agreement. the remark made at the climate summit in glasgow where the president and other heads of state rang the alarm >> this is the challenge of our collective lifetimes the existential threat -- threat to human existence as we know it and every day we delay, the cost of inaction increases. >> we all must speed up our race to net zero. we are running out of time. >> enough of treating nature like a toilet. enough of burning and drilling and mining our way deeper. we are digging our own graves. >> one of the world's biggest polluters made a major pledge today. india's prime minister, narendra modi, announcing that india plans to cut its emissions to net zero by the year 2070. for context, the u.s. aims to go carbon neutral by 20 50. of course, not everybody is impressed by all these pledges a group of climate activists in glasgow posed as world leaders
playing a traditional scottish pipe band. they call themselves the hot air band the protestors calling on the world leaders to take more drastic action against climate change in glasgow, here is cnbc's diana olick. >> reporter: in an ominous sign, literally, high winds tore down the cop-26 welcome banner just as the world leaders' summit in glasgow opened security is incredibly tight as 20,000 people are expected here. world leaders took to the stage, asking each other to be more aggressive in their climate goals, while touting their own. >> the united states will be able to meet ambitious target i set in the leaders summit on climate back in april. the united states is not only back at the table but hopefully, leading by the power of our example. >> reporter: conspicuously absent at this conference is china's president xi he sent a written statement saying that china will rein in the, quote, irrational
development of energy-intensive and high emissions projects. but china is the world's largest emitter of greenhouse gases, and has said it will not stop increasing emissions until 2030. experts say that will not get the earth to 1.5 degrees celsius of warming -- the goal set by the paris agreement. >> the prince of wales >> reporter: while most of the leaders appealed to each other, britain's prince charles focused on the private sector and corporate ceos. >> we need to align private investment behind those -- behind these industry strategies to help finance the transition efforts, which means building the confidence of investors so that the financial risk is reduced. >> reporter: meanwhile, just outside the conference, two german children made a desperate plea propelling off the side of the clyde arc bridge and hanging a sign saying, humanity is failing. they posted this video on twitter. >> since last in madrid, our politicians have been telling us that they will take care of this and they aren't.
they are lying to us >> reporter: the children then climbed back to safety where two adults were waiting to help them the adults were then promptly searched by police apparently, the parents were also nearby. we are expecting to see larger-scale protests here as the week goes on shep. >> diana olick live for us in glasgow. chaos for american airlines. long lines of passengers, as hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of flights were cancelled. and it happened over a pretty regular weekend. so, what should we expect for the holidays plus, the passenger accused of punching a flight attendant breaking bones in her face now, he's facing charges are the things america makes out here. the history she writes in her clear blue skies. the legends she births on hometown fields. and the future she promises. when we made grand wagoneer, proudly assembled in america, we knew no object would ever rank with the best things in this country.

more travel chaos at u.s. airports this time, for american airlines the company's cancelled more than 2,000 flights since friday, including more than 400 just today. in all, american grounded about one-third of its schedule yesterday. that's according to the flight aware tracking service here, you can see long lines at american counters in los angeles, dallas, and charlotte the company reports its cancellations yesterday, alone, affected more than 130,000 travelers. officials at american are blaming the situation on bad weather and staffing shortages other airlines have had similar problems in recent months. southwest cancelled a couple of thousand flights over several days a few weeks ago and spirit grounded more than 2,800 over a ten-day span in
august cnbc's phil lebeau covers travel for us phil, three airlines all suffering months apart what's up here >> well, the biggest problem, shep, is that these airlines are so tightly staffed and they have got their schedules set because they don't want to leave potential revenue on the table they want to offer as many flights as possible. that when there is a major-weather event and last week in dallas, it was high winds that caused massive cancellations and delays at dfw which is the main hub for american airlines and as a result, crews are out of place they can't get back in place and you have hundreds of flights -- thousands of flights -- that are cancelled because it takes that long to get the schedule back up to normal which they expect to happen by tomorrow it's not a good situation, and it's one that i think people are saying, okay, how often are we going to see this? >> it wasn't even a particularly busy travel weekend, really. how concerned should people be about the holidays >> oh, i'd be concerned. it's going to be a miserable travel experience here in the united states for the holidays
think about this you have got more people flying. you have got tightly staffed airline schedules. we get a bad storm someplace, shep, i would not be surprised that you see this type of situation happen, again. and you don't know which airline is going to be hit so, if you are a traveller, you have to be prepared. this is a possibility. >> phil lebeau, thank you. federal prosecutors charging an american airline's passenger with assaulting a flight attendant. happened last week on a flight from new york city to orange county in southern california. officials say this man, brian shu, is his name, punched a flight attendant at least twice in the face after she accidentally bumped into him that forced the pilots to divert the flight to denver where the flight attendant was taken to a local hospital officials say she had multiple broken bones in her face shu, the passenger, scheduled to make his first court appearance today. american airline's ceo says he will never fly on that airline, again.

councillors, both democrats, both mothers, both women of color, and both daughters of immigrants wu's parents are from taiwan george's parents are polish and tunisian. >> i speak a lot about my father over the course of this campaign because he said to me as a young person interested in politics, an arab girl with an arab name will win nothing in this city. >> reporter: the centers for american women in politics at rutgers university reports 25% of mayors in the u.s. are women. up from 22% in 2019. >> women are -- are going to come to power whether we like it or not. >> it's about time, i guess. >> coming from a former-communist country, it is a dream come true from an immigrant. >> what does this race say about the progress the city is making with two women as the candidates >> when i first ran for office eight years ago, i never could have imagined that in just four election cycles, we'd be here in the midst of an historic race. >> reporter: wu is from chicago and moved to the area to go to harvard. if she wins, she would be the
first mayor born outside of the city in nearly 100 years back in 1926, malcolm niccols became mayor and he was born in portland, maine. >> what is your message to young girls, young women who are interested in getting into politics >> we need you right now. >> i know women across this country are grateful for the opportunity to lead and to inspire and to do the work >> reporter: when it comes to the politics, wu is much more progressive than george, for example, on public transit wu wants to make it free george says that would cost too much she would rather invest that, shep, into transportation infrastructure. >> perry, thanks live in boston we are also keeping a close eye on minneapolis because, tomorrow, voters are set to decide whether the city will scrap its current police department the measure would replace it with a new department of public safety of course, it comes in the wake of a national movement against police brutality a movement propelled into the spotlight by george floyd's death at the hands of a minneapolis police officer
nbc's shaquille brewster live outside a polling station in minneapolis. shaq, what are you hearing from voters there >> shep, i will tell you, this is a decision voters say they are taking extremely seriously we saw long lines outside of one early-voting location for this local election and, you know, this is something that voters say is unique to them. it's not just the mayor. it's just not the city council on the ballot. instead, it's the fundamental question about policing in this city >> hi. this is mj. >> are you cecelia >> reporter: this election, the minneapolis police department is on the ballot. >> have you heard about the public safety amendment on the ballot >> reporter: a year and a half after the murder of george floyd, a full-scale campaign to eliminate the department from the city's official governing document. >> we are reinforcing the importance of this amendment >> reporter: it's ballot question number two. shall the minneapolis city charter be amended to remove the police department and replace it with a department of public safety with specific functions to be determined by the mayor
and city council functions, which could include licensed peace officers or police officers if necessary >> we are about expanding public safety >> reporter: yes for minneapolis collected more than 20,000 signatures and overcame legal challenges to get the question to voters. >> this is, finally, an opportunity for people to get in right relationship with armed police officers and with so many other qualified professionals and resources that we really need. >> the chief of police would report not only to the mayor but to the board, so i am for it >> reporter: the city's police chief and mayor who himself is on the ballot, both oppose the measure. >> it would have the head person of this new department report to 14 different people. when everybody's in charge, nobody's in charge >> reporter: a sentiment felt by many across the city. >> this amendment is neither necessary, nor sufficient. >> reporter: the group, all of minneapolis, opposes the measure. they are canvassing north side neighborhoods battling surging
gun violence. >> they want to see transformational change to public safety. but at the same time, they want more better police this amendment sets the stage for defunding the police. >> folks really want us to say this is defunding or it's not defunding. and the reality is this charter change on its face does neither. >> but didn't it get on the ballot because of that energy? those calls to defund the police. >> >> it got on the ballot because people were ready to hold police officers accountable. >> reporter: undecided voters struggling with the nuance. >> they going to take a police department away? how -- how we going to live? >> we need the police, you know? we -- we need them but we also need, i believe, police reform >> reporter: many wanting reform, but now feeling the pressure. >> all over the country, they are watching minnesota watching minneapolis and what we're doing. >> reporter: now, shep, if a majority of voters approve this amendment, the mayor and city council will have to come to

debt and the economy the british prime minister, boris johnson, is urging world leaders today to act now on climate change before it's too late >> if we don't get serious about climate change today, it will be too late for our children to do so tomorrow. >> the prime minister johnson says one of his goals is to phase out the use of coal. but the uk government seems to be doing the exact opposite as it plans to open its first deep coal mine in decades here's nbc's matt bradley. >> reporter: boris johnson's hosting the biggest climate conference in the world. one of his main priorities get rid of coal, for good. >> our country, the uk, was 40% reliant on coal to -- to generate power today, it's only -- today, it's only 1%. >> reporter: but justtwo hours drive south of glasgow, one town is threatening to spoil johnson's party by welcoming coal back. an international company wants to open the first new coal mine
in decades here in white haven. >> in the 1950s, coal was still our dominant energy source >> reporter: when the mines became unprofitable in the 1980s, the government shut them down that hit towns like white haven hard. >> lots and lots of mines all got shut down. and it's just slaughtered this country. >> reporter: for people here, the new mine is a chance to turn things around. >> i would estimate about 90% of the people are in favor of the mine it's got very, very strong support in the local community >> reporter: this is where the mine is supposed to be built it used to be the site of a major chemical plant that when it closed in 2005, left this big empty space and a huge hole in the local economy. but the plans have horrified environmentalists who say it's taking britain in the wrong direction. >> the climate impact is quite clear. it's 9 million tons of carbon dioxide a year reaching the
atmosphere that wouldn't do, otherwise. >> reporter: it's even prompted criticism from politicians in the u.s. >> i think generally speaking, the marketplace has made a decision that coal is not the future >> reporter: the mine's biggest selling point is that it will only produce coal used to produce steel, rather than burning it for energy which is dirtier. supporters say that if coal wasn't mined here, the uk would have to import it, anyway. john fell is a chef and one of several local business people who is trying to turn the town around we sat down with some of them to hear why they felt the mine was misunderstood. >> has been designed as a carbon neutral -- it's a carbon-neutral building so it's not like the community are not thinking this way. >> this is not a decision about whether we use coking coal or not. this is a discussion about where it comes from, not whether we use it >> reporter: but white haven isn't alone. as the world transitions to a zero-carbon future, governments will have to decide whether
communities like this win or lose for the news, i'm matt bradley well, it's now against the law to chain your dog outside in texas. the governor there, greg abbott, signed the bill into law last week it's a new version of one the governor vetoed back in june the law goes into effect early-next year. according to the animal legal and historical center, 23 states have animal tethering laws in place. it was already illegal to change a dog in texas during extreme weather but this new law is more specific outlining chains -- or outlawing chains or heavy weights to restrain dogs outside. violators can face a fine of up to $500. imagine heading outside to start your day, and getting a face full of spiderweb from a spider that's not even supposed to be here at all. that's what people in georgia say is happening to them, and they are sharing their stories on social media with videos like this one posted to tiktok of a giant spider lurking outside a
home or this one from twitter the user here, brandon, says he and his son have been documenting this particular spider for quite a while now it's called a joro spider. native to east asia. but now, spinning its webs all across power lines and porches and vegetable patches in north georgia. it's invasive. a nuisance and sort of scary to come. some bug expert's back with us, he is the dean of the mt. st. joseph school of behavioral and natural sciences what do we do about these joro spiders, professor >> shep, great to be with you again. how are you doing? >> great great. great. i don't want a spider, though. >> that's true these spiders were first introduced about five years ago into georgia and they are spreading. they are now known in over 20 counties in georgia and i just checked just a few minutes ago and they have been reported from western south carolina, southern tennessee, and western north
carolina so, they are the loving, wonderful, humid weather and temperatures we have in the southern southeastern u.s. >> they are big but are they dangerous? >> well, they're big that's what makes them sort of scary to people. they're -- with the legs extended, they are about the size of the palm of your hand. >> wow. >> and that's a good-sized spider but their venom is not dangerous. their fangs are -- are quite small. the only danger it'd have is if you are allergic to spider venom. that might be a problem. but otherwise, they are trying to avoid you as much if you try to miss with them, they will probably try to run away. >> you said they were introduced five years ago what does that mean? how did they get here? >> they probably got here in some kind of a -- of a container. and in a shipping container of some kind. and probably, went into -- we don't know what -- what port they came into probably one of the southeastern u.s. ports, and then found a -- a -- a suitable, wonderful habitat just like a lot of americans want to live in the southwest u.s. -- southeast
u.s., excuse me -- so -- so do these spiders. >> so now that they're here, are they here to stay? do they have natural predators >> well, we have not -- it seems that they're here to stay. they are spreading in their distribution we are seeing more and more reports coming in and they are -- they're not harmful in fact, they might even be kind of beneficial. they have been spotted feeding on things like stink bugs. they will even feed on a few vertebrates. they have been seen feeding on lizards. >> if they eat the stick bugs, i might rethink this but the one behind you over your right shoulder, that is not the real size, is it >> no, that's a little bit bigger but that's to give you an idea they are a beautiful -- beautiful spider, in particular. with their yellow and black legs and that wonderful colored underside of the abdomen there this yellow up -- up dorsal surface there. they are a rather pretty in -- pretty spider. >> yeah, talk about not pretty who wins in a fight? the joro spider or the murder
hornet >> oh, right now, first of all, rarely going to come in contact with each other. the murder hornet's up in -- up in washington state and southern british columbia and these are down in georgia and the southeastern u.s there will be many, many years before they see each other. >> we could arrange a bout i think the murder hornet would get this one quickly. >> murder hornets are primarily pe pests of honey bees. if you put them together in a jar, will they fight >> professor, it's great to see you. professor, we appreciate your time an army of investors who call themselves apes have made a huge impact on wall street now, a select few tell us why they are buying into the hype. it's the most magical time of year. the time for slivered onions, barbecue sauce, and pork products the mcrib is back! and this year -- this year, mcdonald's has taken it a step farther.
