President Joe Biden will speak about the economy and inflation Thursday following the release of a closely watched report that’s viewed as a good indicator of whether Wall Street’s recent optimism is warranted or overdone. "All eyes are on the arrival of U.S. inflation data this week," Clifford Bennett, chief economist at ACY Securities, said in a report. Still, the Fed doesn’t expect inflation to slow enough to get close to its 2% target until well into 2024.

The team has one national title to its credit from 1938. With a blueprint similar to Saban’s but modified to fit Georgia, Smart has built a program that appears capable of accomplishing the ultimate goal: sustained excellence. Facing Georgia marks the culmination of one of the most improbable seasons in college football history. The Bulldogs fielded one of the best defenses in recent college football history in 2021, a unit that produced a record five first-round picks in the NFL draft. Since the Bulldogs won their first national title in 1980, led by freshman tailback Herschel Walker, only three teams have won consecutive national titles: Nebraska (1994-95), USC (2003-04) and Alabama (2011-12).26 days ago FOX 5 Atlanta
