Good and bad news for the baby formula shortage

The good news is that a major baby formula manufacturing plant in Michigan is restarting production after being closed for months. That could help ease the shortage. But it's going to take weeks for new product to hit the shelf. And the bad news is that the shortage has only gotten worse in recent weeks. Also, the U.S. considers lifting tariffs to flight inflation. And, half of NBA teams now have Black head coaches, including the Boston Celtics who are playing for a championship in the NBA Finals. But the league is still behind on equity when it comes to other hiring.
