On September 1, the CDC announced a national eviction moratorium. If you met a few conditions, your landlord couldn’t evict you for nonpayment of rent during the pandemic. Though it’s been spottily enforced, the order has kept people in their homes, preventing them from having to move in with others and risk spreading the virus.

But the moratorium expires on January 1. President-elect Joe Biden won’t be inaugurated until January 20, at which point he may propose a new solution or simply keep the moratorium in place. But that leaves a nearly three-week gap where—as things stand—landlords can begin the process of evicting tenants who have been accruing back rent the entire time. Will the Trump administration act to extend the order? If not, millions of renters could be at risk. Read more.

The CDC’s eviction moratorium expires on January 1. Even if the Biden administration has a plan to help renters, unless Trump acts there will be a 20-day gap when landlords can try to evict anyone who didn’t pay.

Sunbeam is recalling more than 940,000 Crock-Pots. Here's what you need to know
Certain Crock-Pot 6-Quart Express Crock Multi-Cookers can pressurize when the lid is not fully locked, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. That can cause the lid to shoot off, spurting hot food and liquid and scalding users.
Sunbeam has received 119 reports of lid detaching, including 99 cases of first-, second-, and third-degree burns, the CPSC says.
This recall is for model number SCCPPC600-V1, which was manufactured between July 1, 2017 and October 1, 2018, with date codes K196JN through K365JN and L001JN through L273JN.
The CPSC advises people to stop using the recalled Crock-Pot in pressure cooker mode, though slow cooking and sautéing is OK. (If you still want to use it as a pressure cooker, make sure the lid is securely locked by lining up the arrow on the lid with the lock symbol on the base.) Contact the company for a free replacement lid.
