STOCKHOLM (AFP) - A woman in Sweden suspected of holding her son captive inside their apartment for decades has been arrested, police said on Tuesday (Dec 1), 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
Build your tech skills without breaking the bank. Luis Alvarez/Getty ImagesIf you're looking to work in tech but can't afford the upfront costs to earn a degree, you might want to consider income share agreement (ISA) bootcamps. These programs can help you earn the experience you need in less than a year without having to pay tuition until you land a new job with a minimum annual income. Many graduates have gone on to land lucrative positions at Google, IBM, Microsoft, and Amazon, or find jobs after being laid off during the pandemic. Business Insider spoke with alumni and leadership from six notable tech bootcamps that offer these agreements for insights on how they work and why they recommend them. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Software developers typically bring in a solid six figures, with the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BOL) reporting that their median annual income in 2019 was nearly $108,000. Similar earning potential exists for roles in related fields, like information security. The payoff can be high, but so can the upfront investment, with entry-level roles in both software development and information security usually requiring four-year degrees, per the BOL.

Apple has slipped to No. 4 in the global smartphone rankings after being leapfrogged by Chinese upstart Xiaomi. The iPhone maker, who had recently trailed only Samsung and Huawei in global market share, has fallen out of the top three, according to sales estimates from research firm Gartner. Apple’s sales of 40.6 million iPhones in the quarter ending September — before the new iPhone 12 line was released — represented just over 11 percent of the overall smartphone market . Xiaomi, meanwhile, saw sales jump 35 percent over the quarter, taking a 12 percent chunk of the market with its 44.4 million devices sold. Samsung kept a firm grip on its first place standing, nearly doubling Apple’s sales with 80.8 million smartphones sold. Despite seeing growth slow by more than 20 percent from last year, Huawei kept its hold on second place. The new figures showed a reduced appetite for new phones during the pandemic, with sales down 5.7 percent from the same point last year. But Gartner senior research director Anshul Gupta said that some recovery may be on the horizon. “Consumers are limiting their discretionary spend even as some lockdown conditions have started to improve,” Gupta said. “Global
Rubbish floating in Naifaru Harbour, Maldives, Indian Ocean. Rosemary Calvert | Getty Images LONDON — A Tesla executive has left the electric car company and joined a London start-up that's aiming to address the world's plastic problem with a new chemical additive. Steven Altmann-Richer, who led public policy for U.K., Ireland and new markets at Tesla, joined London start-up Polymateria in the last few weeks as head of public affairs and regulatory strategy, after spending three-and-a-half years at the U.S. car company. Polymateria, which has around 25 staff based out of Imperial College's start-up incubator, has developed a "biotransformation technology" that breaks down plastic into a wax-like substance that then gets digested by microbes. It has also created a new British standard for biodegradable plastic. "I want to help policymakers understand that this is a truly revolutionary solution which can improve the environment in their country and globally," said Altmann-Richer, who holds a master's degree in environmental policy from Oxford University, on a call with CNBC. The EU currently defines biodegradable plastics as those that can be composted at an industrial site. It doesn't, however, take into
