President-Elect Donald Trump’s  choice to be Health and Human Services Secretary, Congressman Tom Price,  defends himself against charges of profiting from insider trading on a biotech firm. Trump’s nominee to head the E.P.A., Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt,  tells a Senate confirmation hearing that he believes global warming is real, breaking with both his past statements and those of Donald Trump. A protest calls on Contra Costa County District Attorney Mark Peterson to resign after he admitted embezzling funds from his campaign committee for his personal use and then lying about it. A vigil at Berkeley City Hall marks the death of a homeless woman near Berkeley High School — a death advocates say could have been prevented if authorities had let them maintain their encampment.
