President Biden announced on Friday that the United States would revive its participation in an initiative among dozens of nations and investors to increase government budgets for renewable energy research, development and deployment.

The program, Mission Innovation, was spearheaded by former President Barack Obama and Bill Gates, in parallel with the Paris Agreement on climate change, in 2015. When President Donald J. Trump abandoned the climate accord and sought to roll back most funding for renewable energy in the United States, Mission Innovation faded from view.

Bagel baker finds support, room to grow in Superior

“I’ve noticed that people who buy bagels are just the nicest people. I don’t know why that is,” owner Lexy Land said.

Every week, Land bakes up to 25 dozen bagels, depending on the number of orders. Her staple flavors are plain, cinnamon sugar, Asiago cheese and everything (topped with a blend of sesame seeds, poppy seeds, minced onion, minced garlic and a flakey sea salt).

“That’s the one that I definitely sell most of every week,” said Land, who lives in Duluth’s Morgan Park neighborhood. “I’m always making dozens and dozens of ‘everything’ bagels.”

Lift Bridge Bagels also offers cream cheese-filled bagel bites and a half-and-half box featuring a new test flavor and cream cheese.

Hunting, gun sports app GoWild seeing rise in ammunition scams

Scammers are increasingly targeting people seeking to buy ammunition and other gun accessories as ammo is in short supply and the market is flooded with first-time firearms buyers, according to hunting and shooting sports forum GoWild.

GoWild, a social media platform created for outdoor sports and shooting enthusiasts, issued a warning to its community earlier this month: “Scammers are aiming for your ammo purchases.”

Brad Luttrell, GoWild’s co-founder, told FOX Business he believes scammers are finding new opportunities in the 8.4 million people who bought guns for the first time last year. 

“If you’re a scammer, this is a great ploy, right? Because you have 8.4 million new people who don’t have loyalty,” Luttrell told FOX Business when reached by phone. “They don’t know what an ammo store should look like. And they haven’t bought online before.”
