More than three-thousand people are dead after two massive earthquakes rocked Turkey and Syria. Just over half of those deaths have occurred in Turkey. The first quake was a magnitude seven-point-eight and the second tremor was just below that.        President Biden says the shooting down of a Chinese balloon will not change his State of the Union Speech Tuesday night. Speaking on the White House lawn, Biden said it was always his idea to shoot it down once it was safe to do so. He said he will talk to the American people and tell them what he's accomplished and what he wants to achieve.        Americans are feeling less confident about the economy. A new Gallup poll shows more than two-thirds of those surveyed expect inflation to rise in the first half of this year, while 48-percent believe stock market values will decline. A whopping 74-percent look for more interest hikes in 2023.        Wall Street is closing lower to start the week as bond yields rise. Investors took some profits while weighing the latest batch of corporate earnings. Stocks traded down for much of the session, but trimmed losses late in the day. At the closing bell, the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 35 points to 33-891.        Police in one Kentucky town are passing along a heads-up about a scam targeting coffee drinkers. Cops in Georgetown, north of Lexington, say a link is being circulated around the web offering free coffee and donuts. Clicking on the link will release a virus which will allow typing only in all caps. Police say don't be fooled as there's no free coffee or donuts.
