President-elect Joe Biden is set to give a Thanksgiving address this hour. His transition team says the speech will cover the "shared sacrifices Americans are making" during the holiday season. Biden will also deliver words of encouragement that "we can and will get through the current crisis together."       Around 14 million Americans could see their unemployment benefits stop at the end of next month. Two programs Congress created to help the nation get through the pandemic will end with the new year. In addition to the unemployment programs ending, federal rules blocking evictions and allowing borrowers to defer mortgage and student loan payments also expire at the end of 2020 unless Congress extends the programs before then.       President Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani says his client's campaign has been denied the opportunity to speak out by big tech and big television networks. Giuliani claimed that there is voter fraud in Wisconsin, Michigan, Nevada, Arizona and Georgia, all states President Trump lost to Joe Biden. Courts have routinely dismissed their challenges, citing a lack of evidence.        Americans are changing their holiday travel plans because of the pandemic. An Axios-Ipsos poll found 61-percent of Americans say the recent increase in the number of coronavirus cases led them to make changes. Most of the changes have people gathering in smaller numbers while nine-percent aren't planning on celebrating Thanksgiving at all.        Ghislaine [[Geh-lane]] Maxwell is in quarantine after possible exposure to COVID-19 at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn. Prosecutors say a staff member tested positive and Maxell will now spend 14-days in isolation in her jail cell. She is accused of helping lure under-aged girls for convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein to abuse.        For a few years Diego Maradona was recognized as the world's top soccer star. He died this week at age 60. Maradona recently underwent brain surgery. Maradona led Argentina to the 1986 World Cup title. His later life was marred by addiction and excess. It led to him being banned from the game he loved for 15 months in 1991.
