White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki doesn't seem phased when it comes to President Biden's job approval rating. Speaking to reporters on Friday, Jen Psaki [[ SAH-kee ]] said the President will remain focused on doing his job, leading the American people and pushing for "fundamental changes that will make people's lives better." A new Gallup poll has Biden's approval rating at 42-percent.       Arizona's attorney general is seeking to stop President Biden's vaccine mandate from being implemented. Republican Mark Brnovich [[ burn-uh-vich ]] is asking for a temporary restraining order, along with a preliminary injunction, that stops it from being enacted across the country. The order requires businesses with over 100 employees to get vaccinated.        Numerous Chicago workers are taking the city to court. A lawsuit was filed Thursday in a federal court by over 130 city workers claiming the local state and vaccine mandates are unconstitutional. An executive order by Governor JB Pritzker requires health care workers and certain state workers to be vaccinated.        The Dow Jones Industrial Average is finishing the week at an all-time high. It climbed 73 points to log its first record close since August 16th. At the end of the day, the Dow finished at 35-677.       The family of Gabby Petito is breaking their silence following the positive identification of Brian Laundrie's remains. Petito family lawyer Rick Stafford said the family is not conducting interviews at this time while they grieve the loss of their beautiful daughter. The attorney for Laundrie's family told ABC News they're also not speaking publicly at this time.       Kellogg's is being taken to court over one of its popular breakfast items. NBC10 reports the company is accused of false advertising regarding its Frosted Strawberry Pop-Tarts. The suit states the labeling is misleading, saying the pastry's filling has more "strawberries than it does."
