Cruise, the self-driving start-up company backed by General Motors, is getting help from a tech titan as it tries to speed up the commercialization of driverless vehicles. Cruise will partner with Microsoft and use its Azure cloud computing platform for its self-driving vehicles. Microsoft’s expertise could also help GM quicken digitization initiatives, including the use of artificial intelligence. In exchange, Microsoft has agreed to take an equity stake in Cruise. Microsoft will join GM, Honda and other investors in a new equity investment totaling more than $2 billion combined, pushing Cruise's private market valuation to $30 billion. That investment puts Cruise in the fast lane when it comes to the companies that are in the race to develop self-driving vehicles and its technology along with Waymo, the self-driving company that's majority owned by Alphabet and Argo AI, the Pittsburgh-based self-driving start-up back by Ford and Volkswagen. GM's stock soared on the news, jumping 10 percent to a post-bankruptcy record high.

Uganda has accused the U.S. ambassador in the country of seeking to subvert last week's presidential election. That's after the American embassy in Kampala said Nathalie E. Brown was prevented from visiting opposition leader Bobi Wine at his home, which has been surrounded by security forces since the vote. President Yoweri Museveni, in power since 1986, was declared winner of the poll though Wine and his National Unity Platform want to legally challenge the results. Museveni claims the election may turn out to be the most "cheating free" in Uganda's history. The U.S. embassy has said the vote was tainted by harassment of opposition candidates, suppression of media and rights advocates and a nationwide internet shutdown. It said Ambassador Brown visited Wine's compound to try and check on his health and safety. But government spokesman Ofwono Opondo claimed, without providing evidence, that Ambassador Brown had a track record of causing trouble in countries where she worked. "But what she has been trying to do blatantly is to meddle in Uganda's internal politics, particularly elections, to subvert our elections, and the will of the people." The public rebuke to the United States is relatively unusual as the two nations are allies. Washington supports Ugandan soldiers serving in an African Union peacekeeping mission in Somalia and has donated about $1.5 billion to Uganda's health sector in the past three years. Troops have prevented Wine - real name Robert Kyagulanyi - from leaving his home since he returned from voting on Thursday (January 14). On Tuesday (January 19) he said he and his wife have run out of food, and milk for their niece. Her father has been refused entry to collect the 18-month-old, Wine wrote on Twitter. A police spokesman said a motorcycle courier had delivered food to Wine's house each day. On Tuesday Wine's lawyers filed a petition in the high court challenging the legality of detaining Wine and his wife without charge.

The founder of MyPillow, a vocal and in the past few weeks very visible supporter of President Donald Trump, says a backlash against the company has begun after a mob stormed the U.S. Capitol this month. Mike Lindell, the company CEO and also the face of the brand, said major retailers like Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohl’s have dropped his products recently. Both companies confirmed the decision to cease carrying the brand Tuesday, but cited flagging sales rather than Lindell's actions or his support for Trump.

Care homes will be given Treasury-funded "time-limited" insurance cover to encourage them to take more Covid patients discharged from hospitals. It comes after the Government sparked concerns by updating its official guidance to allow "non-infectious" hospital patients to be discharged into care homes without needing a Covid test in the 48 hours prior. In a written statement, Nadhim Zahawi, the vaccines minister, said on Tuesday that the Government "will introduce a targeted and time-limited indemnity offer to fill gaps in commercial cover" for care homes that are prepared to admit Covid-positive patients. For months, providers have highlighted problems insuring themselves against claims of clinical negligence, amid calls for the sector to be given indemnity like the NHS. Acknowledging that "obtaining sufficient insurance has been a barrier", Mr Zahawi said the cover would last for around eight weeks until mid-March. But the Government has not yet clarified when the scheme will launch or how providers can sign up for cover, or revealed the eligibility criteria. Some have questioned whether the measure will adequately ease the NHS capacity crisis because care home owners are so reluctant to accept residents where there is a risk of introducing coronavirus. They fear a repeat of the rapid spread of infections caused by a Government diktat of March 19 last year which said infected patients could be discharged into care homes without a test. The widely-criticised policy was blamed for care homes accounting for roughly half of all excess deaths – 25,374 – between March 7 and September 18, according to the Office for National Statistics. Mike Padgham, the chairman of the Independent Care Group, said care providers would "need the insurance to last for longer" and questioned why it did not include business interruption cover. "If a care provider had an outbreak of Covid and has to close temporarily, indemnity insurance wouldn't cover the loss of income," he said.
