The global semiconductor industry continues to deliver solid results, growing at more than 20 per cent a year for 13 consecutive months, despite double-digit annual growth in non-memory products in April due in part to strong growth in the memory market.

According to the semiconductor industry association (SIA), global semiconductor sales in April 2018 totaled $37.6 billion. April sales were up 1.4 per cent from the previous month. Sales are up 20.2% from a year ago.

So far this year, the global semiconductor industry has continued to deliver impressive results, with annual growth of more than 20 percent for 13 consecutive months, according to SIA President and CEO John Neuffer. Despite strong growth in the storage market, non-memory products posted double-digit annual growth in April, and all major regional markets saw double-digit annual growth. Semiconductor growth will be substantial this year and slow next year.

In April, sales in the Americas rose 34.1 percent, China 22.1 percent, Europe 21.4 percent, Japan 14.6 percent and Asia Pacific/other regions 10.2 percent, compared with the same period last year. China grew 3.2 per cent, Japan 2.7 per cent, Europe 1.4 per cent and the Americas 0.8 per cent. In Asia/elsewhere, however, the monthly decline was 0.8 per cent.

SIA endorses the global semiconductor sales outlook published by the world semiconductor trade statistics association (WSTS). The global semiconductor market is forecast to grow 12.4 percent to $463.4 billion this year, an all-time high, the WSTS said. But growth will fall to 4.4% next year.

Dragon Boat Festival is in 18th June this year.
This is one of Chinese most important traditional festivals.
Kingtronics will have one day off for this festival.

It is said that the Dragon Boat Festival is to commemorate patriotic poet Qu Yuan who drown himself in the river.
In order to avoiding the creatures in the river to hurt Qu Yuan’s body,  people boated and threw rice rolls to the river.
That’s the source of the most popular activities for this festival–eating Zongzi & racing dragon boat.

#1 Switch to LED Bulbs 
Replacing regular incandescent lightbulbs with LED bulbs, which last longer, save much more energy efficient, and can provide a cleaner, more natural looking light. 

#2 Turn off the light
This is the most common way to save electricity. Leaving electronics on standby means that electricity is still being used so they can be turned on at a moment’s notice. eg. When you leave a room, make a habit of turning off the lights, every single time.

#3 Spend less time in the shower 
Especially true if you have an electric shower and a water meter. Take showers instead of baths. Baths use a lot more water than showers. Spending even a minute less in the shower every day can make a real difference to your annual consumption.

#4 Wash clothes on a lower temperature 
Most of your washing can be done at a lower temperature – like 30 degrees – and still provide the same results. Doing this will help to reduce your electricity consumption as your washing machine won’t need to heat the water to such a high temperature.

#5 Purchase energy efficient appliances 
This is an expensive one to get into, but if you’re upgrading appliances then making sure you get one with a high efficiency rating will help save you money every day that it’s running. 

Buddha's Birthday is a holiday traditionally celebrated in most of East Asia to commemorate the birth of the Prince Siddhartha Gautama, later the Gautama Buddha and founder of Buddhism. It is also celebrated in South and Southeast Asia as Vesak which also acknowledges the enlightenment and death of the Buddha. According to the Theravada Tripitaka scriptures (from Pali, meaning "three baskets"), Gautama was born in Lumbini in modern-day Nepal, in the year 563 B.C., according to the Nepalese Account, and raised in Kapilavastu. At the age of thirty five, he attained enlightenment (nirvana) underneath a Bodhi tree at Bodhgaya (modern day India). He delivered his first sermon at Sarnath, India. At the age of eighty, He died at Kushinagar, India.

The exact date of Buddha's Birthday is based on the Asian lunisolar calendars. The date for the celebration of Buddha's Birthday varies from year to year in the Western Gregorian calendar, but usually falls in April or May. In leap years it may be celebrated in June.

In Hong Kong, Buddha's birthday is a public holiday. Lanterns are lit to symbolize the Buddha's enlightenment and many people visit the temple to pay their respects. The bathing of the Buddha is a major feature of Buddha's birthday celebrations in the city.

May the joy and happiness around you today and always. 

Are you making a resolution for 2018? Warning: More than half of all resolutions fail, but this year, they don’t have to be yours. Here’s how to identify the right resolution to improve your life, create a plan on how to reach it, and become part of the small group of people that successfully achieve their goal.

Pick the Right Resolution

You’ll give yourself your best shot at success if you set a goal that’s doable — and meaningful too.

According to the time management firm FranklinCovey, one third of resolutioners don’t make it past the end of January.

A lot of these resolutions fail because they’re not the right resolutions. And a resolution may be wrong for one of three main reasons:

It’s a resolution created based on what someone else (or society) is telling you to change. 
It’s too vague.
You don’t have a realistic plan for achieving your resolution.

Your goals should be smart — and SMART. That’s an acronym coined in the journal Management Review in 1981 for specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time-bound. It may work for management, but it can also work in setting your resolutions, too.

Specific. Your resolution should be absolutely clear. “Making a concrete goal is really important rather than just vaguely saying ‘I want to lose weight.’ You want to have a goal: How much weight do you want to lose and at what time interval?”. “Five pounds in the next two months — that’s going to be more effective.”

Measurable. This may seem obvious if your goal is a fitness or weight loss related one, but it’s also important if you’re trying to cut back on something, too. If, for example, you want to stop biting your nails, take pictures of your nails over time so you can track your progress in how those nails grow back out. Logging progress into a journal or making notes on your phone or in an app designed to help you track behaviors can reinforce the progress, no matter what your resolution may be.

Achievable. This doesn’t mean that you can’t have big stretch goals. But trying to take too big a step too fast can leave you frustrated, or affect other areas of your life to the point that your resolution takes over your life — and both you and your friends and family flail. So, for example, resolving to save enough money to retire in five years when you’re 30 years old is probably not realistic, but saving an extra $100 a month may be. (And if that’s easy, you can slide that number up to an extra $200, $300 or $400 a month).

Relevant. Is this a goal that really matters to you, and are you making it for the right reasons? “If you do it out of the sense of self-hate or remorse or a strong passion in that moment, it doesn’t usually last long.” “But if you build up a process where you’re thinking harder about what’s good for you, you’re changing the structure of your life, you’re bringing people into your life who will reinforce that resolution, then I think you have a fighting chance.” 

Time-bound. Like “achievable,” the timeline toward reaching your goal should be realistic, too. That means giving yourself enough time to do it with lots of smaller intermediate goals set up along the way. “Focus on these small wins so you can make gradual progress.” “If you’re building a habit, you’re planning for the next decade, not the next couple of months.”
