CRUNCH: According to mathematician Neal Freyman, today is the sound of mathematicians scrambling to find another topic to tweet about besides dates that form palindromes.

WHY: Today, 12/22/21, is the 22nd and final palindromic date of the year. There won’t be another year with 22 palindromic dates until 2111.

FACT: 1/20/21 was the first Inauguration Day with a palindromic date in American history. The next one will come in 1,000 years, on 1/20/3021.

  • Markets: Down big one day, up big the next—that’s the Omicron-era stock market for you. Stocks surged yesterday following a 3-day losing streak, with travel companies leading the way.
  • Covid: The FDA is set to authorize Covid pills from Pfizer and Merck this week, Bloomberg reports. These treatments, which are intended to be taken by vulnerable people shortly after they are infected, could significantly reduce the burden on strained hospitals. Experts say the pills are a pandemic medical milestone second only to vaccines.
