Greece and Italy plan to reopen schools, while the U.K. brings in stricter rules.

La Niña is here, which could mean a cold and stormier winter than normal across the North, while the southern tier stays drier, with warmer than average temperatures.

SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION
Open meeting of the Asset Management Advisory Committee to assess whether it should be easier for companies to block submissions from newer stockholders who don't own many shares, a move wanted by corporate leaders who have complained about unfair shareholder campaigns. In November, the SEC proposed the changes, which could rein in proxy advisory firms and was criticized by several investor advocates, pension fund managers, and hedge funds. The changes would increase the value of stock shareholders need to have before they can submit proposals if they haven’t been invested for three years. See complete agenda here.
