3 hours 2 min ago

Failure by countries to agree rules on implementing the 2015 Paris climate agreement aimed at curbing global warming would be suicidal, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said on Wednesday.

'Key issues unresolved', UN chief warns climate talks

3 hours 12 min ago

Katowice (Poland) (AFP) - "Key political issues" deadlocking UN climate talks "remain unresolved", UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned Wednesday after an unscheduled stop at the troubled negotiations in Poland. The fight against climate change is a "matter of life and death today," he told ministers and delegates at the 195-nation UN forum tasked with beating back the threat of global warming, barely 48 hours before the meet in the coal town of Katowice was set to adjourn. The two-week talks are tasked with breathing life into the 2015 Paris Agreement, which vows to cap global warming at "well under" two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) and funnel hundreds of billions of dollars to poor countries already feeling the sting of deadly storms, heatwaves and droughts made worse by climate change.

Intel plans 'stacked' circuits in bid to regain its chipmaking lead

3 hours 47 min ago

Intel, the world's biggest maker of computing chips for personal computers and data centers, for decades followed Moore's law, named for Intel co-founder Gordon Moore, by doubling the number of transistors on a chip every two years, thus roughly doubling their performance. The company said in July that chips featuring its newest 10-nanonmeter manufacturing technology will not arrive until the holiday shopping season of 2019. In the meantime, most of Intel's biggest rivals such as Nvidia Corp and Qualcomm Inc long ago quit manufacturing chips and outsourced the work to firms like TSMC.

In an effort to better grasp the sun's past, present and future, Colombian and Spanish researchers made visualizations that meld the last 400 years of recorded solar observations.

Physician assistant faces U.S. trial over Insys opioid kickbacks

6 hours 50 min ago

A federal jury in Concord, New Hampshire, will hear opening statements in the trial of Christopher Clough, whose case could provide a glimpse into some of the evidence prosecutors plan to use in the upcoming trial of six former Insys executives and managers. Both cases stem from what prosecutors say was a wide-ranging scheme overseen by Insys executives including John Kapoor, a onetime billionaire who was its founder and chairman, to pay medical practitioners kickbacks to prescribe its powerful opioid, Subsys. Prosecutors contend Clough accepted nearly $50,000 in fees from Insys from 2013 to 2014 to act as a speaker at events ostensibly meant to educate healthcare professionals about Subsys but which were actually shams.
