Rome is drawing up an offer to try to convince Intel to invest billions of euros in an advanced chipmaking plant in Italy, as Germany emerges as frontrunner to land an even bigger megafactory planned by the U.S. company, three sources said. The plants would be part of a drive by the U.S. group to build cutting-edge manufacturing capacity in Europe to help avoid future supply shortages of the kind currently crippling the automotive industry in particular. Rome is already in talks with Intel about the potential investment, which according to preliminary estimates would be worth more than 4 billion euro ($4.7 billion), the sources who are involved in the discussions said.

What is the “delta plus” variant? It’s a relative of the delta variant, identified by British scientists last month. Because it isn't a variant of interest or concern, it has not yet been officially named after a letter of the Greek alphabet, like the other worrisome variants. Scientists are monitoring the delta-related variant — known as AY.4.2. — to see if it might spread more easily or be more deadly than previous versions of the coronavirus. In a recent report, U.K. officials said this varia
President Joe Biden on Thursday said the United States should "fundamentally alter" the Senate filibuster on "certain issues" as his administration faces growing pressure from activists and Democrats to act on voting rights legislation. The filibuster requires 60 of 100 U.S. senators https://www.reuters.com/world/us/what-is-us-senate-filibuster-why-is-everyone-talking-about-it-2021-10-06 to agree on most legislation, a hurdle that has left the Democratic party powerless on key social issues given their narrow majority. In recent months, many Democrats have urged a carve-out to exempt a voting rights bill, after Republicans enacted dozens of state laws that Democrats say could restrict voting for many Americans, especially minorities.
LONDON (Reuters) -Italy's government and UniCredit are preparing to call off negotiations over the sale of ailing bank Monte dei Paschi (MPS) after efforts to reach an agreement over a costly recapitalisation plan failed, two sources told Reuters. Italy has long seen a merger with a stronger peer as the best solution for the Tuscan bank, which has plans to raise 2.5 billion euros ($2.9 billion) in capital next year. But the sources said the terms of a potential sale agreed by UniCredit and Italy's Treasury when they entered exclusive negotiations on July 29 have made the merger plan too costly an alternative to a stand-alone recapitalisation.
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden botched the numbers behind the COVID-19 vaccine rollout Thursday as he stretched to take all the credit for the surge of shots once he was in office. A look at his remarks during a CNN town hall event: BIDEN: “When I first was elected, there were only 2 million people who had COVID shots in the United States of America — and the vaccine. Now we got 190 million, because I went out and bought everything I could do and buy in sight and it worked." THE FACTS: No

OTTAWA — Some Kabul safe houses, where hundreds of Afghans who helped the Canadian military and non-governmental organizations are waiting to flee to Canada, are set to be closed in two weeks because of lack of funding. An organization running the safe houses, where around 1,700 people with approval to come to Canada are being housed and fed, say that "time has run out" for them. Without government support, some will have to close because they do not have the cash to keep all of them open. The s
TORONTO — Ontario is set to lift all COVID-19 public health measures by the end of March, including mask mandates. Premier Doug Ford said Ontario is in a position to do this thanks to the province's careful approach to re-opening and the resulting stability seen in case counts, hospitalizations and ICU admissions. "We're here because we stayed cautious," he said. "We stayed disciplined and we never underestimated this virus. We look to other countries, other provinces, there could be no question

At a recent physicians' town hall, doctors from the Saskatchewan Health Authority confirmed there were 17 children in the province hospitalized with COVID-19 — the highest number at any point in the pandemic so far — with the vast majority too young to be vaccinated. Many were under the age of five. Saskatchewan NDP education critic Carla Beck called the statisti
