From consumer gadgets to cars, China has shown a knack for producing cutting-edge technology. Yet the semiconductors that power the digital economy have proved trickier to master. That has been the source of much anxiety among its political and business elites in recent years. America’s decision in 2022 to halt exports to the country of its whizziest chips and chipmaking tools brought into stark relief the chokehold of China’s geopolitical rivals over the industry. In December last year China’s imports of the lithography machines used to imprint circuits onto silicon wafers surged by 450%, year on year, as local chipmakers raced to buy advanced kit from ASML, the Dutch market leader, before export restrictions by the Netherlands came into effect in January. It has also been

Rural-Focused Fund Backs Maine Enterprises Tapping Technology Used In Europe

Rural-Focused Fund Backs Maine Enterprises Tapping Technology Used In Europe

What are the chances that the first two investments of a fledgling fund focused on boosting rural economic development in the U.S. would be Maine-based enterprises using technologies with a track record in Europe, but unknown here?

That’s the story behind RuralWorks Partners’ initial impact investments—American Unagi, which produces and processes sushi-grade American eels, and TimberHP, a maker of building insulation made of waste wood fiber.

Made in Maine Eels

With a long-time interest in aquaculture, Sara Rademaker founded Waldeboro, ME-based American Unagi in her basement in Maine about 10 years ago. Her mission: to jumpstart the growth of the domestic fish industry. After doing some research, she’d realized that eels were a perfect fish to target. ”As a little girl, I never saw myself as an eel farmer,” says Rademaker. “But this seemed like a

New technology interprets archaeological findings from Biblical times

New technology interprets archaeological findings from Biblical times

Credit: Tel-Aviv University

A breakthrough achieved by researchers from four Israeli universities—Tel Aviv University, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Bar-Ilan University and Ariel University—will enable archaeologists to identify burnt materials discovered in excavations and estimate their firing temperatures.

Applying their method to findings from ancient Gath (Tell es-Safi in central Israel), the researchers validated the Biblical account, “About this time Hazael King of Aram went up and attacked Gath and captured it. Then he turned to attack Jerusalem” (2 Kings 12, 18). They explain that, unlike previous methods, the new technique can determine whether a certain item (such as a mud brick) underwent a firing event even at relatively low temperatures, from 200°C and up. This information can be crucial for correctly interpreting the findings.

The multidisciplinary study was led by Dr. Yoav Vaknin from the Sonia & Marco Nadler Institute of Archaeology, Entin Faculty of Humanities, at Tel Aviv
