European Union pandemic recovery fund facing crisis
European Union countries whose economies have been battered by the coronavirus pandemic are impatiently waiting to get their hands on the recovery fund, sanctioned by the EU. But earlier this week, Hungary and Poland effectively vetoed that budget worth a total of $2.1 trillion. And, following two extremist attacks the past month in France, President Emmanuel Macron has begun pushing a new proposed law that would crack down on so-called "Islamist separatism." Also, a pet food company has released what they're billing as the first Christmas song ever produced specifically for dogs.
