TAKEOFF,

Pressure Rises for Biden to Drop Out,

More than a week since President Biden’s poor debate performance, reports continue to surface concerning his ability to perform presidential duties or defeat former President Trump in November’s election.

A former White House doctor has reported a January meeting between Biden’s personal doctor and a Parkinson’s disease expert, a meeting confirmed by the White House visitor log.

Also, a senior White House official, speaking to the New York Times anonymously, said that Biden has “steadily showed more signs of his age in recent months, including speaking more slowly, haltingly and quietly, as well as appearing more fatigued in private” and isn’t up for the rigors of the campaign.

The debate over Biden’s future has reportedly caused long-held tensions between Biden’s family and his top aides to boil over, as the president’s family attempts to become more involved in his campaign and other affairs.

Hamas Drops Key Demand for Cease-Fire,

A Hamas official has indicated the group’s willingness to drop the demand that Israel commit to ending the war completely prior to a cease-fire, potentially clearing the path to implementing a U.S.-backed proposal for a pause in fighting.

The proposal would comprise a six-week cease-fire, first including the release of a number of Hamas-held hostages in exchange for the release of hundreds of Palestinian prisoners.

Though still uncertain, U.S. officials are optimistic for a cease-fire and a potential end to the war. CIA Director Bill Burns is expected to travel to the Middle East next week to join negotiations.

List: Home Price Increases by State,

Home prices are rising across the country, and a new infographic map breaks down the increase by showing how much prices have risen in each state.

Nationally, home prices rose 6.6% over last year, but the increase was sharpest in the Northeast, led by Vermont at nearly 13%, then New Jersey, New York and Delaware, all above 10%.

In California, housing prices went up 6.3%, in Florida by 6.1%, and in Texas only 3.3%, one of the lowest in the country.
