Millions of booster shots could start being given to newly eligible Americans later this week. The FDA has already approved Pfizer boosters and is considering giving the green light to Moderna and Johnson & Johnson boosters. An advisory panel recommended the go-ahead for full approval last week.       A heartbreaking loss is what White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki [[ SAH-kee ]] is calling the death of former Secretary of State Colin Powell. Psaki said it's a rare tragedy that Powell was vaccinated and still lost his life to COVID-19 complications. She added Powell was battling other diseases and had underlying health issues that ultimately led to his death.        The House select committee probing the January 6th Capitol riot is making public a contempt report on former President Trump's ally, Steve Bannon. The document reports the steps the committee took to get Bannon to comply with its subpoena and Bannon's failure to do so. It will be reviewed at a meeting Tuesday and is the first step in a series of moves to hold Bannon in criminal contempt.        A Vincent Van Gogh painting once seized by the Nazis is set to be auctioned off for millions. It was painted by the artist in 1888 after he returned to France amid declining health. The piece was looted by Nazis in 1941, and sat in a private collection in Austria.       The "Father of Rock and Roll" is being honored on what would have been his 95th birthday with a new album. Chuck Berry, Junior announced on his dad's Facebook page that a new album is being released in his honor. The album is titled "Live from Blueberry Hill," and the performances were recorded between July of 2005 and January of 2006. It became available for pre-order Monday.
