Intel removes fans computers

Tag: Uncategorized, international, life, news, technologyadmin @ 2:37 pm

 Intel wants

calm reign in IT. The chip giant announced Monday a new generation of microprocessors particularly economical energy, which dissipate less heat. PC manufacturers can then design and tactile finest portable tablet computers. The latter, freed from fans, will also be quieter. It is no less than "reinventing the laptop," said Intel in a presentation document. This development

is critical for Intel. The world leader in microprocessors built his fortune from embedded chips in PCs. The advent of smartphones and tablets, has weakened its positions. These small devices, always on and connected to the Internet, require highly efficient energy chips, Intel has long been unable to provide. As a result, computer manufacturers have turned to rival chips produced by Qualcomm, Nvidia and Samsung, while Apple went to design its own components for its iPhone and iPad. More worrying

Intel, microprocessors originally developed for smartphones and tablets, now considered strong enough, begin to be installed in the PC, the preserve of Intel. The latest laptop from Acer this week introduced the Chromebook 13 loads a Nvidia chip. Autonomy would reach 13 hours, more than models with Intel technology.

With the new microprocessor, called "Core M", Intel intends to maintain its position in the computer and win in new tablets. "Core M" will find its place in some ultraportables in hybrids, these tablets that transform into PC with the addition of a keyboard, as well as in high-end tablets.

"You will see in particular tablets with the highest level of performance, which will be thinner and lighter," promises Christian Morales, Vice President of Intel for Europe, Middle East and Africa. Intel is virtually absent from the high-end tablets, over 300 euros. Available for Christmas

Most Intel chips are now in the entry-level models, where the margins of the American group are smaller. Only a few remained faithful partners like Microsoft. Its Surface 3 thicker than the iPad Air Apple and the Galaxy Tab from Samsung features a fan. As for laptops, the "Core M" chip could also end up in a future version of Apple's MacBook, which does not contain a fan, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities. The "Core M" is the first chip from a new generation of components Intel, called Broadwell. Intel launched volume production of its chip, which means that the first PCs and tablets equipped with "Core M" will be commercially available for the crucial holiday season of Christmas. The entire range will be presented at the upcoming Intel Developer Forum, to be held in San Francisco from September 9 to 11. Other microprocessors for conventional laptops, desktops or servers to professionals, should be offered in number to Intel customers until the beginning of next year. Intel

indeed took several months of delay in the development of the generation of chips Broadwell, who was asked to review its manufacturing processes.  These chips

entitled to use extremely fine engraving of 14 nanometers, 22 nanometers against the previous generation, which helps to reduce energy consumption and the place of the microprocessor. Share this article

Sanctions against Russia block 50,000 Russians abroad

its back can ruin the late vacances2. Especially if the tour operator has not paid the bill. In total, 50,000 Russes3 saw their darkened room. Labirint is the fifth Russian opérateur4 turn to go bankrupt in three weeks! Yesterday, 27,000 Russian tourists found themselves without a return ticket, stuck on the benches of foreign airports. 40 flights were put in place to allow the return of travelers, thus reducing their number to 12 000 at the end of the day, told AFP the spokesman Rostourism, Russian Union of Tourism Industry Irina Tyurina .

This applies not only to travelers on departure. The tour operator Labirint ceased operations since last Saturday, and thus stopped paying foreign hotels5. Thousands of tourists have been evicted from their rooms, resulting in several fights with hoteliers. Including Turkey6, where every year nearly 3.5 million Russians traveling to Istanbul to watch the Blue Mosque and the chimneys of Cappadocia, precise 7Irina Tyurina.

Ukrainian crisis weighs on bookings

"All these agencies Travel8 operate on the model of the pyramid. They sell tickets and then they say, oh, sorry, we do not have enough customers, "said Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev9 during a speech. In other words, the tour sold stays abroad without being sure that they can be profitable. Thus, without a minimum number of travelers, companies were taking the risk of selling trips loss and eventually go bankrupt.

But the context does not encourage the Russians to leave. "The political and economic situation has had a negative impact on the number of bookings and the decline in the value of the ruble has degraded the purchasing power of Russians," says Labirint tour operator. In fact, the Ukrainian crisis and Western sanctions weigh heavily on the Russian economy. European measures block access financial markets to Russian companies, which plays on their incomes and those of households. Western sanctions also have an impact on the rouble10, which declined 11% from its peak value in September 2013, degrading the purchasing power of Russians. Not to mention the travel restrictions imposed by its nationals Moscou11 occupants of strategic positions in the administration.  

"We fear that this is only the beginning of a domino effect," said the spokeswoman antenna radio Echo of Moscow Federal Tourism Agency Russia12 Irina Shchegolkova. The number of Russian tourists traveling abroad has dropped by 30-50% compared to last year. An event that could weigh heavily on the world tourism. The last year 40 million Russians traveled beyond their borders. They are even among the biggest spenders with 32 billion euros in 2012

Craftsmen and traders do not see the recovery

 No

embellished on local employment expected in France, at least in the short term. It is the fact that the Professional Union Craft (UPA) book in a survey published Monday on the economy and employment in the sector in the first half of 2014.'s Approximately 1.3 million companies nearby , which represent 20% of the workforce employed in the private sector, saw their sales fall by 1.5% in the second quarter this year. The turnover of the sector is in the red for more than two years. Result: companies in the sector are not likely to recruit. "Only 19% of these companies have hired the entire first half, flat compared to 2013," said the UPA. All sectors are not housed in the same boat: 34% of businesses in the hospitality industry hired when they are no more than 9% and 11% respectively in the service and food. "These figures remind us that the pact does not have any responsibility in business reality and the acceleration of the timetable for lower cost of labor was totally justified," says UPA in its communiqué openly criticizing the slow implementation of government policies.

No improvement expected in 2014

The craft enterprises and local shops are not optimistic for the rest of the year. 30% of CEOs believe their sales will continue to deteriorate in the next quarter, up 7 points over three months. Worse, only 12% plan to hire in the second half or even less. Not surprisingly, the hospitality industry is the most optimistic sector and hopes to use the summer to hire and recover its margins. In contrast, only 5% of artisans public works plan to recruit. Hiring intentions are also very low for the services or the building. Finally, the part-time commonplace. Thus, nearly a quarter (24%) of business leaders have used, especially those in the hospitality and food (40% and 31%). More than a boss in two (51%) employed part-time for less than the new legal limit of 24 hours per week. UPA demand an easing of the legal system "so that the common interest of the employer and the employee may be privileged." Between the government and employers, differences persist.

Crashes and security series: summer murderer airline

Tag: Uncategorized, economic, finance, news, worldadmin @ 7:52 am

 A horrible

black series with three plane crashes – the downing of Malaysian Airlines Boeing 1au over Ukraine, the crash of an ATR 72-500 TransAsia Airways2 Taiwan and now the disappearance of a 83 Swiftair3 MD, operated on behalf of Air Algeria, Mali over – in a week. A macabre combination which, fortunately, is very rare.

But these repeated accidents will make 2014 a year of the most deadly airline. It will also add to these three crashes, the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Boeing with its 239 passengers, on March 8, a few hours after taking off from Kuala Lumpur and its sudden change of direction while the plane was rallying Beijing . Disappearance remains unexplained to this day. And several crashes occurred in Nepal, Kenya, Niger, Zambia and Sudan in recent months.  

In total, more than 730 people have already died by flying this year. Much higher than at the last peak in 2012 and 414 deaths related to a plane crash, more than four times higher than those recorded (210 deaths) in 2013 by the International Air Transport Association (IATA4). And finally, more than the average of 517 deaths per year recorded in the world in the last five years. The road

killed 3,268 people in France alone in 2013

This sad record 2014 must not however forget – and this may seem paradoxical then that emotion is huge – the aircraft remains the means of transport most of the world. But unlike the automobile kills more – 3268 died in 2013 in France alone – each plane crash is spectacular, has an international dimension and place in a universe – the sky – which is not natural to human no fax payday loans.

However, the plane never had so few killed. The global accident rate for jet Western manufacturing in 2013 was 0.41, or one accident for every 2.4 million flights. "This is the lowest in the history of aviation," according to IATA in its latest report on aviation safety. "From 2009 to 2013, this rate has improved by 14.6% over the five-year average, which stands at 0.48", the report says. Europe

is the safest region

The accident and death rates remain very low by more than 3 billion passenger who took the aircraft on 36.4 million flights in 2013. These statistics should also be read in the context of a market for air transport growth (4.8% on average) and a global fleet that doubled in size every two years on average. It now has 20,910 units in service worldwide and is expected to double, according to the latest market study Boeing5 within twenty years.

By region, the IATA report refers to Europe as the safest in terms of air transport with a lower accident rate than average 0.15 World in 2013; ahead of North America (0.32). In contrast, among the most dangerous regions despite significant progress, IATA means Africa6 with an accident of 2.03 against 4.55 in 2012 and the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) which saw its rate accident rate worsen to 2.09 against 0.00 in 2012. "IEC shows the worst performance," says IATA.

An American harvest tens of thousands of dollars for his potato salad

Tag: Uncategorized, online, opinions, people, specialadmin @ 11:16 am

 

Some jokes can be expensive, others report more than expected. Danger that Zack Brown has allowed him to harvest date, 57,000 dollars (41,800 euros) and gather more than 4000 contributors around … a salad potato. And it's not over as there is still 24 days before the end of the quest.

When the young American publishes its project on the crowdfunding site Kickstarter, it sets its target to $ 10. "I'm just a salad potato. I have not yet decided which, "says Zack in the project description. For those who are willing to finance the salad up to a dollar, it promises a "thank you posted on the site" and recite their names aloud while cook. For $ 3, visitors must get some of the finished product. Sole risk of this unusual investment: "This may be not good, this is my first salad of potatoes," warns Zack in the "Risks and Challenges" section of the page Kickstarter1.

…… The improbable project met and exceeded the original target. Zack takes the game and promises new counterparties. At $ 35, it will be "four times more potato salad." At $ 75, it will hold a "pizza party". Ultimate grail, 100 dollars for which gratify contributors two different salad recipes potatoes. Against all odds, mayonnaise takes. Boosted by social networks, the project has been an unexpected success and donations accumulate. In just three days, it reached 4000 dollars. In a video posted Sunday Zack thank users "without whom it would never have been possible guaranteed pay day loans."

…… "When I started this campaign [crowdfunding], my secret goal was to reach $ 60, "reveals Zack. He is now the head of a virtual capital of tens of thousands of dollars. Wednesday morning, the project brought together 57,000 dollars and more than 4,000 contributors. "I never thought it would take on such a scale, responded the young man on the U.S. site Reddit2. Ten dollars seemed a reasonable goal. I think people have found an opportunity to gather around something as absurd as banal. "

He invites" all internet "to a baby salad potato … ……. In exchange, American offers a hat bearing the image of a potato salad or a cookbook, send it in December. This leaves a few months to organize Zack, who plans to "rent a large room to invite all Internet a feast of potato salad." While some question, however, the project should be approved by Kickstarter.

The site has softened effect there one month operating rules and the draft Zack, although delusional, meets the three conditions imposed in that the project must "propose creating something to share with others," "to be honest and clearly presented" but that the funds raised are for a "charity" and that the proposed compensatory measures are financial. Asked about the moderation of such fanciful projects, crowdfunding platform has répondu3, not without humor, that "there is no single recipe for inspiration."

Companies forced to reduce their quota of trainees

Tag: Uncategorized, finance, news, resources, specialadmin @ 8:53 am

 

While many young people "still struggling" already to find internships, often required to validate their years of study, the new law on the supervision of stages1, finally adopted on 26 June will complicate their task a little more. Starting again laudable intentions – they protect young people against abuse and other "courses copiers" – this text is likely to miss its target. For

by increasing constraints, it may discourage foremost business leaders to open their doors to students. However, demand is high: the number of stages2 in France has almost tripled in less than ten years to 1.6 million per year, in part due to their generalization in the curricula of secondary and higher education. But also because the course has often become a point of passage for a first job.

Result, since July 1, employers are forced to comply with new Obligations3. First, they must not exceed a maximum ceiling of trainees based on number of employees of the company. This number, which will be fixed by decree, could be three trainees in enterprises with more than 30 employees, and 10% of trainees in larger companies. Cherpion Act

2011

"Violation of this provision shall be punished by a fine not exceeding € 2,000 per trainee concerned and 4,000 euros if recurrence, "said the law firm DaemPartners, recalling that the limitation period of the administrative action is two years. The maximum duration of internships remains at 6 months, but in two years, there will be no derogations possible for example to make a gap year in his studies to go abroad.

Then entrepreneurs will have to increase by September 2015, the remuneration for internships over two months, which will increase from 436 523 euros monthly. Finally, they must extend to all students access to the restaurant business, earnings restaurants securities or reimbursement of transport costs where they exist for their employees.

"This rigid and dangerous law will scarce supply Internship"

Patrick Hetzel, UMP ….. ….. In addition, the law reinforces the means to identify and punish any abuse, introduces leave of absence, leave, time aligns the presence of trainees on the employees, exempts from tax income gratification. "The names of the students in the institution should now be listed in order of finish in a specific part of the single registry staff to facilitate the monitoring of labor inspectors" still regrets the cabinet DaemPartners .

The left supported the text "going in the right direction" and reflecting a campaign promise François Hollande4 despite flats Left Front, while the UMP and the UDI voted against. The objective is not to "leave to think that companies are fraudeuses, but some like to play with the rules," observed Denys Robiliard (PS). Whereas

"existing law already protects students' thanks to Cherpion Act of 2011, Patrick Hetzel UMP denounced a bill" rigid "and" dangerous scarce will offer internships. " As the UMP, UDI also criticized the maximum duration of six months for internships, "which will challenge the gap year" in studies from abroad.

American Apparel: escapades CEO put towards group-turvy

Tag: Uncategorized, life, people, special, top newsadmin @ 11:45 pm

 

Money, sex, Californian sun and financial dirty tricks. All the ingredients of a soap opera together in the battle between Dov Charney, the founder of the clothing chain American Apparel whimsical, administrators of the group. They have committed a crime of high treason on June 18, in the ousting of its PDG. Despite the 27% stake it held then (making it the largest shareholder), the contractor was unable to oppose this decision guaranteed unsecured personal loan. Dov Charney was a surprise last Friday by announcing he controlled 43% of the capital, through an alliance with a fund. Administrators responded the next day by adopting a "poison pill" (poison pill) to prevent founder still up capital.

How do we make our races in 2025?

Tag: Uncategorized, news, online, resources, traveladmin @ 3:49 pm

 

"With the massive use of the Internet, we live the same kind of period when we found the car, train, and electricity at the same time": François Bellanger is Director of the "think tank" TransitCity 1 and sits on the Scientific Committee Europacity the Pharaonic Auchan2 project aimed at building a large market town combining leisure, culture and consumption. According to him, how to make our races should evolve dramatically in the coming years, including the following two main areas.

One is to save time, thanks to the proximity (multiple small pave signs everywhere), transit (with drive-in3 and stores in train stations or subway stations) and finally through purchases on the Internet. The other axis would, conversely, to "enhance the experience" of the purchase. François Bellanger and take the example of football stadiums overflowing, despite the abundant supply of specialized channels which broadcast the matches, "he'll just have to increasingly justify the movement," he explains cheap insurance.

In the same way that the shops which lowered the store at lunch and after 19h suffered an exodus of their customers, especially women work, to major retailers and hypermarkets, some retail players should "disappear" if they do not quickly reinvent themselves to compete on the web. One point on which bounces Distinguin Stéphane, President of FaberNovel4 and also looking for Europacity: "We must recreate the magic trade, souks and bazaars," said the latter.

"We'll have to re-imagine the physical world based web"

Distinguin Stéphane, President of FaberNovel. The interface

. stores should change gradually. First possibility: that pushing, soon our caddies in shelves … hyper-connected. "Whether with a smartphone5, Google Glass6 or bracelets connected system, we can easily imagine multiple sensors and ambient intelligence allow shopping centers to focus on the consumer experience," explains Stéphane Distinguin. Thus, from the "type" of customer profiles, the large surface area could be adapted according to the different periods of the year or even hours of the day. A process reminiscent deployed to Disney World, Orlando 7.

Second point: the opening up of the universe. While on the Internet, consumers can go from fashion to DIY a query on Google8 Francois Bellanger insists that many stores will have to strive to "give more" to their client. Stéphane Distinguin not say anything else: "We can not imagine a world without contact car company insurance maryland. But we will have re-imagine the physical world based web, especially with regard to the porosity of the universe "visited, he says. Especially since so far, the latest innovations (the drive-in ordering on the Internet) destroy all the impulse purchase – the famous chewing gum to funds – One critical manna in the distribution9.  

Finally, each company should seek different ways to add "relevant experience" strengths: sales temporary spaces, social mix, original frames … "The question to ask is: what can not dematerialize, "explains Stéphane Distinguin?. Developed to transform its store amusement park? François Bellanger response: "You know, after all, Disneyland is only one mall that dare not speak its name …".

Road transport threatened by low-cost

Tag: Uncategorized, business, features, publications, technologyadmin @ 5:57 pm

 Between

a French truck driver paid 31,000 euros net per year and his Polish counterpart paid 16,000 euros, an international transport company quickly made the calculation, provided that the rate of social security contributions is almost two times lower than in Poland … This "splits" denounced by a Senate report information was again discussed Wednesday by transport professionals and political representatives to the Economic and Social Council where there was a European conference on harmonization of social conditions in the road freight transport.

For decades, the distortions of competition between low-cost countries and others are dug. The "French flag" represents only 10% of the European market for international freight while in 1999 it was still 50% court records.

This movement is irreversible, say industry professionals. Some large French groups (Norbert Dentressangle1 Geodis …) are still present in this segment but their leaders emphasize that only the creation of subsidiaries in eastern Europe has kept an international activity which reflects the shift in activity industrial on the Old Continent.

The liberalization of the road haulage market and the enlargement of the European Union do not facilitate the harmonization of working conditions.

Early December, Frédéric Cuvillier2, the Minister of Transport, now secretary of state, even denounced "behavior slave" in the transport sector. "I saw how employees are treated European countries, apart from all social rules and creates an unacceptable dumping" had he exclaimed. Social dumping

The FNTR3 (National Federation of Road Transport) which includes the majority of transport companies denounces illegal and effects of "optimization" practices. Clearly, the practices of "cabotage" – that is to say, the succession of loading and unloading of goods in a country other than that of origin in the context of international transport service – which not comply with the regulations. In this case, the French companies that provide domestic services compete with these international operators. Other companies circumvent the law by using light vehicles traffic is not regulated public court records. The FNTR

hope that a common European driver status could be created within five years. It would converge fiscal, social and regulatory. No question, however, to align this standard on the French model, consider companies. "We should especially harmonize working hours," said an officer who regrets the equivalent costs there ten years between French companies and their counterparts in West Germany are now 10% lower than in Germany because of for better productivity and lower payroll taxes. By coincidence, the directive on posted workers who can fight against the dumping social4 was adopted unanimously Wednesday to the European Parliament.
