The incumbent US President Donald Trump seems to be finally coming to realize his defeat. At Mercedes, on the other hand, they believe that they'll celebrate a huge victory with their new Mercedes-Maybach S-Class. And did you know that a film is being made in which Nicolas Cage plays himself?
The General Service Administration (GSA) informed the newly elected President Joe Biden that it is ready to initiate the formal takeover process. It is a recognition of Biden's victory by a key government agency. This happened more than two weeks after the election winner had been announced. The incumbent President Donald Trump also commented on the matter on Twitter. He claimed it was in the country's interest for the General Service Administration and his team to do what needed to be done. However, he also mentioned that the head of the GSA had allegedly been threatened and under pressure.
"Please know that I came to my decision independently, based on the law and available facts. I was never directly or indirectly pressured by any Executive Branch official—including those who work at the White House or GSA—with regard to the substance or timing of my decision,"
Despite allowing the formal process of the transfer of power to begin, Trump still refuses to recognize Joe Biden as the winner of the election. Yet in recent days, Trump's legal team has been losing one court battle after another. They failed to provide any evidence regarding the manipulation of the elections.

The company Top Glove from Malaysia is about to close 28 of its plants. That's more than half of the total number of factories the world's largest manufacturer of latex gloves owns.

Top Glove had seen record profits this year due to the sharp increase in demand for personal protective equipment, including gloves. However, after the these measures had been announced, the company's shares fell by more than 7 percent within a couple of hours. Top Glove operates 41 factories in Malaysia and most of its employees come from Nepal and live in crowded dormitories. The share of positive tests within the company exceeded 40 percent.

A show of modern technology achievements, that's the best way to describe the new S-Class 223 from Mercedes-Maybach. The car once again raises the bar for what is considered automotive luxury. The engine will be partially electrified, going hand in hand with modern hybrid trends. The driving experience is enhanced by the E-Active body control active suspension or an active noise reduction system. It goes without saying that the new Mercedes-Maybach comes with dozens of safety features that make it literally an impregnable fortress. The rear door is operated electrically. As standard, the seats offer the function of calf massage or neck and shoulder heating. There are five on-board displays, including a 12.8-inch OLED central display that acts as an advanced control center. The new Mercedes-Maybach flagship should be available in the US in the middle of next year.
