    STMicroelectronics and GlobalFoundries announced they have signed a memorandum of understanding to build a 300-mm semiconductor manufacturing facility that will help develop the fully depleted silicon-on-insulator (FD-SOI) technology ecosystem. The new facility will represent a multi-billion–euro investment and is expected to create about 1,000 jobs. The jointly operated fab will support GlobalFoundries’ 22FDX FD-SOI process technology and STMicroelectronics’ technology roadmap down to 18 nm for automotive, industrial, IoT, and communications infrastructure applications, companies said. The facility, which will be adjacent to STMicroelectronics’ existing 300-mm manufacturing site in Crolles, France, is set to reach full capacity by 2026, with up to...

    North Korea fired a ballistic missile on Wednesday, South Korea’s military said, just a week after leader Kim Jong Un vowed to boost Pyongyang’s nuclear arsenal at the “fastest possible speed”. The launch was the latest in a string of sanctions-busting North Korean weapons tests so far this year, and came after US and South Korean officials warned Pyongyang was preparing to resume nuclear testing. “One ballistic missile fired by North Korea today at 1203 (0303 GMT) from around Sunan towards the East Sea (Sea of Japan) was detected,” South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement. “Currently,...

    A University of Pennsylvania law student couldn't shake his paranoid suspicion that his two neighbors, Drexel University graduate students, were foreign spies sent to work on some sort of a terrorism plot, police said. His anger-laced curiosity grew after he approached the roommates, both Indian-born bio-engineering majors, during a seemingly friendly conversation yesterday morning as the three men left the apartment building at 43rd near Pine streets before class, said cops. At about 12:30 p.m, the 31-year-old Korean-American law student returned home, took out his legal Glock-9, and knocked on his neighbors' front door. The 22-year-old Drexel student, the only...

    North Korea’s Kim Jong-un has reportedly denied Vladimir Putin help with his invasion of Ukraine, telling him that Russia is “too insane”. Russia calling on North Korea for help should come as no surprise, with Pyongyang having historically been a key ally of Moscow through its historical ties with the Communist era of the soviet union. Kim was quick to deny Putin assistance, according to XSoviet-News author Sarah Hurst. “Russia reportedly asked North Korea for help with its failing invasion. “North Korea responded, 'You are too insane for us'."

    The authors say the arachnids are harmless to people and pets and may even eat pests like stink bugsLast year in Georgia, the non-native Joro spider population exploded. Golden webs draped porches, powerlines and mailboxes across at least 25 counties in the state, per the Hexapod Herald’s Michele Hatcher. “I have several hundred, and they actually make the place look spooky with all the messy webs—like a scene out of 'Arachnophobia,'” entomologist Will Hudson of the University of Georgia Extension told the Herald last fall. The spiders are large and eye-catching, about the size of a human adult’s palm, with...

    A teenager has been found guilty of killing his grandmother in South Korea, after her body was found with around 60 stab wounds. However, the court has ruled the killing as 'accidental', causing outrage among members of the public. The incident occurred on Aug 30 last year at their Daegu home, where the 19-year-old stabbed his grandmother with a kitchen knife at 12.50am. According to local media, the teenager committed the act because his grandmother was being nitpicky and scolded him and his younger brother. The elder brother reportedly attempted to kill his grandfather as well but was dissuaded by...

    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Accusing the United States of hostility and threats, North Korea on Thursday said it will consider restarting “all temporally-suspended activities” it had paused during its diplomacy with the Trump administration, in an apparent threat to resume testing of nuclear explosives and long-range missiles. North Korea’s official Korean Central News Agency said leader Kim Jong Un presided over a Politburo meeting of the ruling Workers’ Party where officials set policy goals for “immediately bolstering” military capabilities to counter the Americans’ “hostile moves.” Officials gave instructions to “reconsider in an overall scale the trust-building measures that we...
