image for Some Children of US Troops Born Overseas Will No Longer Get Automatic American Citizenship

Children born to U.S. service members and government employees overseas will no longer be automatically considered citizens of the United States, according to policy alert issued by U.S.

Previously, children born to U.S. citizen parents were considered to be "residing in the United States," and therefore would be automatically granted citizenship under Immigration and Nationality Act 320.

Now, children born to U.S. service members and government employees, such as those born in U.S. military hospitals or diplomatic facilities, will not be considered as residing in the U.S., changing the way that they potentially receive citizenship.

"For them to obtain a Certificate of Citizenship, their U.S. citizen parent must apply for citizenship on their behalf," she added.

"This only affects children who were born outside the United States and were not U.S. citizens.

This policy update does not deny citizenship to the children of US government employees or members of the military born abroad," he added, though Task & Purpose did not report that citizenship would be denied. »

A chip made with carbon nanotubes, not silicon, marks a computing milestone

Authored by

Inside a new microprocessor, the transistors — tiny electronic switches that collectively perform computations — are made with carbon nanotubes, rather than silicon.

But carbon nanotube computer chips may ultimately give rise to a new generation of faster, more energy-efficient electronics.

A new kind of computer chip (array of chips on the wafer pictured above) contains thousands of transistors made with carbon nanotubes, rather than silicon. »
