Former Vice President Joe Biden says that he has no major "moral" disagreements with his running mate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), and that the two are "simpatico" on their philosophy of government and positions on the issues. Appearing with Harris for an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper, Biden said that he would handle their disagreements in the same way that he handled disagreements with President Barack Obama when he served as vice president. If the two had ever had a "fundamental disagreement" on some major "moral principle," Biden explained that he would have resigned under pretense of illness rather than continue serving under Obama, and said his relationship with Harris is similar. "We are simpatico on our philosophy of government and simpatico on how we want to approach these issues that we are facing," Biden told Tapper. "When we disagree, it'll be just like — so far, it's been just like when Barack and I did. It's in private. She'll say, 'I think we should do A, B, C, or D,' and I'll say, 'I like A, don't like B and C. And let's go, OK.'""And like I told Barack, if I reached something where there's a fundamental disagreement we
GENEVA (REUTERS) - Recent progress on Covid-19 vaccines is positive but the World Health Organisation is concerned this has led to a growing perception that the pandemic has come to an end, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Friday (Dec 4). "Progress on vaccines gives us all a lift and we can now start to see the light at the end of the tunnel. However, WHO is concerned that there is a growing perception that the Covid-19 pandemic is over," he said. Tedros said the pandemic still had a long way to run and that decisions made by citizens and governments would determine its course in the short run and when the pandemic would ultimately end. "We know it's been a hard year and people are tired, but in hospitals that are running at or over capacity it's the hardest it can possibly be," he said. "The truth is that at present, many places are witnessing very high transmission of the Covid-19 virus, which is putting enormous pressure on hospitals, intensive care units and health workers." Britain approved Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine on Wednesday, jumping ahead of the rest of the world in the race
LONDON — The EU's competition chief has suggested that tech giants will have to change how they promote themselves as the bloc prepares to revise its competition rulebook. The European Union is due to announce an overhaul of digital regulation later this month, which could hurt the business models of Big Tech. The new rules will seek to have stronger oversight over illegal and harmful content, but also ensure that smaller firms can compete against major multinationals operating in Europe. "With power, with strength comes responsibility and part of that is, for instance, that you don't promote yourself when your services (are) in competition with other services," Margrethe Vestager, the head of competition policy in the EU, told CNBC on Friday. Often tech giants show their products at the top of online search engines, which increases the chances that customers will opt for their services. This is known as self-preferencing and was the reason why Spotify brought up a complaint against Apple in 2019. The Swedish digital music service complained that Apple had abused its AppStore dominance to favor its own music service and thus distorting the level playing field. This is one of the issues that the
