In an interview with a Times columnist, Biden said that the United States needed to get leverage back to use in negotiations with China. "I’m not going to make any immediate moves, and the same applies to the tariffs," Biden said. The United States needs to develop a bipartisan consensus and increase government-led investments in research and development, infrastructure and education to better compete with China, according to the president-elect.
Former Chelsea star Joe Cole has hailed Frank Lampard’s “faultless” managerial approach at Stamford Bridge to date. Cole’s former Blues team-mate is in his second season in charge in west London and currently has the team in the thick of the early Premier League title running as well as through to the last 16 of the Champions League with two group games to spare. Lampard was initially hamstrung by a transfer embargo as well as the departure of key man Eden Hazard to Real Madrid after leaving Derby County to succeed Maurizio Sarri in July 2019 and later saw Chelsea fail to secure any deals in January, but worked around those setbacks by handing chances to several talented youngsters, eventually guiding the club to a fourth-place finish and the FA Cup Final.

A woman in Sweden suspected of holding her son captive inside their apartment for decades has been arrested, police said on Tuesday, with reports claiming the man was found undernourished with infected sores on his body and almost no teeth. Stockholm police spokesman Ola Osterling told AFP the man had been "locked up for a very long time" in the apartment in a southern Stockholm suburb but refused to comment on local reports he had been held for 28 years.Neighbours said they had not seen the son, now 41, for years -- or ever.Tove Boman, a 24-year-old who lives in the building next door, told AFP she had only seen the mother. “I grew up here so I've always known who she is and recognised her. She’s a little strange,” she said.The Expressen and Aftonbladet newspapers reported that the woman had taken her son out of school when he was 12 and kept him locked inside the apartment since then.An unnamed relative found the man on Sunday after the mother had been taken to hospital, Expressen reported.The man had infected sores on his legs, could barely walk, and had almost no teeth, limiting his ability to speak, the reports said.Osterling would not comment on those details, saying only: “The man is in hospital. His injuries are not life-threatening.”The woman is suspected of illegal deprivation of liberty and causing bodily harm – allegations she denies.‘Urine, dirt and dust’Media reports suggested the mother was overly protective after having lost her firstborn son when he was 3 years old.The relative said the mother had convinced the boy that everybody was out to get them and that she was the only one who could protect them.The relative also told the Dagens Nyheter newspaper she had contacted social services several times over the years but was told no crime had been committed because the man was not physically locked up.Police tape was stretched across the apartment’s door on Tuesday, and officers were seen leaving the scene around midday, an AFP photographer said.The relative said the apartment, in a nondescript grey and yellow low-rise building in the working class suburb of Handen, looked like it had not been cleaned in years.“There was urine, dirt and dust. It smelled rotten,” she told Expressen, adding that she had to wade through piles of rubbish to get through the hallways.“I'm in shock, brokenhearted, but at the same time relieved. I've been waiting for this day for 20 years.”Police are due to question the man and his mother in the coming days to determine what had happened.‘How could no one have noticed?’Neighbours contacted by AFP expressed shock that the man could have been hidden for so long.Kenth Svedberg said he had noticed an “unpleasant odour” coming from the apartment but it was “nothing I thought very much about”.“What’s so scary is that it’s gone on for so many, many years,” he told AFP.Many neighbours wondered why neither social services, the school nor any other authority ever checked in on the boy over the years.One woman told Aftonbladet she found it odd that their window was never open, and the same candlestick had been in the window for 30 years.“But what can you do? How do you know what’s going on behind closed doors? It’s all so awful, you can’t believe it’s true,” she said.(AFP)

Attorney General William Barr said no evidence of widespread voter fraud has been found that would change the result of the presidential election in the US. The comments, from one of Donald Trump’s most ardent allies, come despite Mr Trump's repeated baseless claims that the election was stolen and his refusal to concede. Mr Barr said US attorneys and FBI agents have been working to follow up specific complaints and information they had received but found no evidence that would change the vote’s outcome.

In Germany's industrial heartland, engineering firms have come up with a recipe for surviving the coronavirus pandemic. Keep spending on research and development even if sales drop, build a financial buffer so you can craft a long-term business plan, be flexible with dealers to keep supply chains intact, have an innovative mindset and see crises as opportunities. It's certainly a strategy that is paying off for some of the small and mid-sized "Mittelstand" companies (SMEs) that together provide almost 60% of all jobs in Germany, according to Reuters interviews with six chief executives.

Australia's most populous state said that from Monday it would remove limits on the number of people at weddings, bars and religious services and end a ban on public venue dancing as a run of coronavirus-free days prompted a broad downgrade of social distancing rules. The changes announced by New South Wales (NSW) on Wednesday come in time for Australia's summer holidays and Christmas celebrations, and mark the biggest lifting of precautionary measures since nationwide lockdowns began in March to slow the spread of COVID-19. People in the state, where a third of Australia's 25 million population lives, would also be allowed to drink standing up at pubs, while seated outdoor events could host up to 5,000 people.
