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

Bundesbank calls for a 3% increase in German wages

Tag: economic, life, news, publications, technologyadmin @ 2:04 am

 

From our correspondent in Berlin,

Wages may increase Germany.1. It is the recommendation of the head of the Bundesbank, Jens Weidmann. In an interview with Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung published 2 Wednesday, he suggests a 3% increase in wages, not for the sake of social redistribution, but by simple economic fact. "The labor market in Germany is in a better position there a few years ago," says the representative of the monetary and fiscal orthodoxy. "In a number of sectors and regions, we are almost at full employment and the needs of labor is increasing. It is in the nature of things, and this is to be welcomed, as real wages rose more strongly than when the German economy was in a worse situation ".  

The level of 3% increase is not set at random: it comes to adding a level of CPI inflation 2% and increased productivity by 1%. At each branch to negotiate based on its characteristics, he also added. "We do not immisçons us in wage negotiations," warns Jens Weidmann.

While Germany has introduced a minimum wage and a generalized growth of 1.9% is expected this year, the head of the However Bundesbank would contain wage demands. "Wage agreements that go well beyond an increase indexed to productivity would hurt growth and employment in Germany and would be a disservice to the euro area," he says. Having advocated the serious economic or austerity in Europe, Germany set a bad example.

German unions have already announced that they would negotiate wages to rise. In public services, this is an increase of 3.5% which is required for example. The IG Metall has in turn already obtained an increase of 2.3% on 1 July for employees Metallurgy and 1.7% in May 2015, 4%. Employers

worries about his side effects of these increases on the competitiveness of the German economy. The minimum wage, which has just been voted cause loss of jobs, do we also accused or price increases. Hairdressers, for example, have already revised their prices to rise.

Seen the rest of Europe, the increase in purchasing power and consumption in Germany is good news. France.3 put on this particular recovery in its main economic partner to improve the economic situation of its businesses. Prime Minister Manuel Valls 4devrait address the issue Thursday with Vice Chancellor and Economy Minister, Sigmar Gabriel, he receives Matignon. The head of government also intends to plead the cause of France to Germany for more flexibility and flexibility in reducing the French deficit.

After the e-cigarette, electronic seal up

Tag: economy, life, resources, technology, traveladmin @ 2:25 am

 The business of

vapotage continues its diversification. After the e-cigarette – allows opening a specialty store every three days1 in France – here's the e-seal, which arrives at the European tobacconists. This invention of a Dutch company called E-njoint already exists in three versions: the first model as safe according to law, without THC, tobacco-free and without nicotine.Totalement legal and harmless, the main advantage of this model is its original form and its operation: you pull the e-seal, and a hemp leaf lights at the end.

In contrast, the other two models which are also sold are much less harmless. And for once are real electronic seals, with effects that go with it: one of the two versions is charged with e-liquid that contains cannabis! And like a true joint, it is the user who decides he wants to dose inside. The last model allows smoking all kinds of dry grass, obviously including marijuana. If the Dutch company mentioned this last model in a statement, it currently left a blur on the Functioning of the latter variation. A

use in the health sector?

The company – which produces no less than 10,000 e-joints per day to be sold in Europe – also announced in discussions with Tikun Olam, the main Israeli company culture marijuana for medical purposes, to develop products to be used in medicine. This is not the first attempt: the website 01net notes that the company Cannabee offers electronic cigarettes and bottles of cannabidiol, a non-psychotropic cannabinoid which would be a medical benefactor.

Another finding, published in a report made in 2013 by the French Office for the Prevention of smoking and other addictions (OFTA): multiple sites or blogs offer Tips to change the composition of e-liquid to change its electronic cigarette e-joint. In fact, so it was already possible to make your own electronic seal. The report also cites several companies – including Cannabee – located in California that are active since 2012, and selling e-liquid for electronic cigarette transform its e-joint.

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.

PSA Rennes website showcases the Factory of the Future

Tag: economic, economy, life, special, worldadmin @ 7:32 am

 

Employees of PSA Peugeot Citroën1 Rennes plant are worried about their future. An extraordinary meeting of the committee of establishment provided Thursday, April 10 should "reorganize production in a single team, which means the removal of a half team," says Loïc Pottier, the CFTC2. Rennes is inspired Poissy and Mulhouse, where a team has lost in recent months. This removal can be done in the framework of the new social contract approved last year by the unions.

"We expected this announcement for 2015 rather than now," says Loïc Pottier. Trade unions signed agreement CFE-CGC, CFTC, and SIA-requested management constructor "make every effort to repatriate to Rennes new activities in workshops and research and development."

On this point, the Ministry of Productive Recovery should answer this. Rennes has indeed been chosen to host one of the pilots' factory of the future "plan. It is one of 34 industrial plans presented by the President of the Republic and the Minister of Productive Recovery in September. Its management was entrusted to Frédéric Sanchez, president of the manufacturer of machine tools Fives, and Bernard Charles, President of Dassault Systèmes.

The details of this plan have been disclosed last Thursday at the Salon of the industry, but at the last moment Arnaud Montebourg3 canceled his coming, held in Bercy by the ceremony of transfer of authority. On behalf of the Minister, Christophe Lerouge, Commissioner productive recovery of Burgundy, said Thursday that "this plan has two objectives: to work on the French offer of new production technology, such as 3D4 printing or robots to be able to export; and secondly, to ensure that these technologies are spreading in France in order to gain competitiveness. " A first steering committee for this plan met mid-March to validate four projects identified twenty one. Wizards robots

One of these four projects thus relates the PSA Rennes site. It should allow to conduct a pilot line for manufacturing prototype parts in composite structure for automobiles. Much lighter than steel, composites will help lighten cars and thus reduce emissions by improving consumption. This line will use technology developed by Fives specialist composite technology. This demonstrator will be housed in Excelcar a company's R & D set up by PSA and supported by the local Breton as part of the re-industrialization of the site. Actors

industrial-builders but also equipment-believe may contract with Excelcar to implement in their factories, their own tool production. Rennes line should be operational late 2015. The total investment will be between 10 and 20 million euros, and will cover 30 to 40 jobs. "The potential is, however, hundreds of jobs if manufacturers decide to implement other production lines in their factories for their vehicles," said an industry expert.

These projects should enable "the transformation of existing plants to create windows of the French technology that can be visited by foreign delegations, for example "explains Frédéric Sanchez Figaro. Unlike the German model, where the robots are already widely distributed in plants because labor is rather scarce, the French model leaves room to the man he is meant to be seen rather as replaced by a robot.

The alarming increase in accidents among women

Tag: Uncategorized, money, news, resources, traveladmin @ 12:44 pm

 

Women's health at work degrades more than men. This is the observation that stands the National Agency for the Improvement of Working Conditions (NAALC), which published early March a study based on figures from the disease.1 insurance. While accidents have generally declined over the past decade (-13%), those women rose sharply (+20%) when men decreased (-23%). Same trend in commuting accidents with sick leave: they are down for men (-9%) and increased for women (15%).

How to explain it? Prevention policies have focused more on traditionally male sectors. For decades, precautionary measures were strengthened in industries such as metallurgy, chemistry, wood or textiles, Anact explains, adding that these sectors have parallel sharply declining enrollment.  

"An invisibility risk for certain jobs" predominantly female

In contrast, most women invested sectors (business services, retail Banking, insurance and administration) have benefited less from these preventive measures. There is a "invisibility risk for certain jobs or female-dominated sectors (services, care, trade, administrative …) given the fact that they have long been considered 'light' instead of jobs or sectors heavy 'predominantly male (construction, industry, energy …), "wrote Anact in its investigation. "Now the employee (s) are also exposed (s) to chemicals, problems of charging port and psychosocial risks, warns Chapert Florence, one of the study authors. But as these risks are less visible, they are less taken into account. "  

Other advanced by the responsible project of its kind, health and working conditions Anact hypothesis: differences in career paths between men and women, "the women, often confined to repetitive and painful positions change little hierarchically unlike men, she says. Result, they are more exposed to sustained professional wear. " In addition, biological and social differences are not taken into account. A equivalent position, the effects of work are not the same for men and women. "Muscle differences, machines not adapted to the size of women may have additional consequences on the health of women." The boom

occupational diseases in women

Can we say that women are worse off than men? Not statistically anyway. In 2012, work accidents involve much more men (67.5%) than women (32.5%). And commuting accidents, men and women are almost equally: 48% and 52%.

…… But inequality increases when the question of occupational diseases are addressed, who are mostly MSD (musculoskeletal disorders). The recognition of occupational diseases has increased nearly twice as fast for women (169%) than for men (91%), all lines of business combined. Workers and employees are three times more likely to get sick than their male counterparts, according to a study published in Dares 20102. And even among executives and entrepreneurs, women are more affected (1.2%) than men (0.8%). If

recognized occupational diseases are more common in women, they are more serious, however men who are overexposed to occupational cancers (97% recognitions occupational cancers affect).

Unemployment: Tree no longer believes in the inversion, Moscovici perseveres

Tag: Uncategorized, economic, international, technology, worldadmin @ 10:08 pm

 

While the December figures to be published this Monday evening, members of the government are not in tune. If some anticipate the failure of the inversion curve unemployment1 and cautious or pessimistic, others defend at all costs the government's record.

Asked Sunday on reversing the trend in unemployment, Michel Sapin2 preferred evoke "a situation of stabilization." Anticipating accusations coaster, the Minister of Employment endeavored to recall the efforts of the government to a crisis that Francis Hollande3 admitted underestimated.

"We are moving towards a situation is a situation stabilization is already considerable," said the Minister of Employment, invited the Grand Rendez-vous Europe 1 / i / TV World. "Everyone will then ramble: 'yes, you are not spent in the least something (…). But 2013 was a year of battle fought effectively against rising unemployment. "

The minister put forward a new fois4 the decline recorded during the year 2013 – "more than 30,000 unemployed additional months" in the first quarter against "third quarter 5500" – and the decline in youth unemployment "for eight months. " He also defended the effectiveness of its policy to support use with supported employment. "The engine of employment policy gave all he could give results," he has said. "We plugged the gaps in 2012 and 2013 and the boat is restarted the second half of 2013. Today the challenge is that this boat, which moves too slowly, moving faster, "added the Minister online payday loans. "The economy must take over from the creation of jobs," he continued, referring to the pact proposed by François Hollande responsabilité5 business that provides relief of charges in exchange for 6 embauches7.

More direct counterpart of Agriculture Stéphane Le Foll8 acknowledged Sunday evening BFMTV "that figure near, the year 2013, we will not reverse the trend of unemployment." However, he felt the need to continue the effort to lower unemployment. Pierre Moscovici9 is not of the same opinion, saying that "the year 2013 there was a sharp deceleration and reversal of the trend in unemployment has been initiated." The Minister of Economy said on France Info that there is "now improved employment situation, a growth restarts but more must be done." This confusion in government communications is reminiscent who had surrounded the announcement of a tax reduction from 201510.

In the aftermath, Jean-Claude Mailly11 blasted "missed a bet" and lashed out at the government hesitant communication. "It must be clearly stated. A sudden reversal is a sudden, it is stabilizing, suddenly, it is a slower rise, we will end up having the reverse inversion, that is to say the increase. "Secretary General ouvrière12 Force on France 5 found that" while we do not find an economic growth rate of around 1.6 minimum point, we may have an increase in unemployment. "

PMU: the French punters were less players in 2013

Tag: economics, features, people, publications, traveladmin @ 10:20 pm

 

This is a paradox that the CEO of the PMU, Philippe Germond1, would gladly provided: the fall from 0.9% to 10.4 billion recorded in 2013 by GIE issues is mainly due to the disaffection of the French racing bettors of chevaux2. The amount of their own issues fell 5.2% to $ 8.9 billion.

Refusing to discuss competition gambling gains reported more spectacular than those races, Philippe Germond justified this regression, the first after fifteen years of uninterrupted growth, the economy. "This decline is due to a difficult economic environment and a significant rise in unemployment," he has said before mentioning the occasional reasons such as cancellation of three Quinte and the absence in 2013 of four events this deviation from the previous year cheapest personal loan rates. If the gross gaming revenue (difference between paris and earnings of players) is rising, Philippe Germond mentioned competition of sports paris The French jeux3 of the physical network. Among the satisfactions of PMU: the increase of 22.4% of sports paris (199,000,000) and especially the 10% increase of poker (569 million) in a total market decline.

Indigestion "good year!" Is already feeling

Tag: Uncategorized, economics, finance, news, peopleadmin @ 6:12 am

 

"So when doit-on/peut-on wish the new year?" One common question that is asked on several Forums1 year after year … The answer? Until 31 January, the entire month! A deadline that may seem a little late, as only a few days after January 1, the signs of irritation occur. On the web and social networks, this is a view shared by many users, who do not hesitate to share their feelings observation. On the Huffington Post, a columnist also wrote a very critical acerbe2 wishes of "Happy New Year" 2014. Others, on social networks, made similar criticisms in 140 characters – on Twitter – or more on Facebook.

On Facebook, many netizens criticize too full of wishes for 2014.

Why this rejection of vows? Because the way they are desired changes considerably. If the number of SMS sent to 20143 this year has stabilized after excessive increases in previous years, this is partly because we prefer more contact vows on social networks to a circle "of friends, "without bothering to customize them. "This massification vows on social networks completely removes the customization … Sincerity is a concept that is lost, "said Lily Ponthieux4, the agency's digital communications and marketing RAPP France. "It is the same birthday, we wish Facebook wall of his friends, because the date is public and visible to everyone."

At work, the wishes of "false ass?"

In business too, the vows are sometimes unbearable for some employees. And yet, good year is widely desired colleagues! "At a time when individualism is pervasive among employees perpetuate this rite of vows is a necessity. Because it is a way to unify the employees who have the feeling of living the same as their colleagues at the same time, "says Danièle Linhart5, labor sociologist and director of research at CNRS. "In an atmosphere where competition reigns at work, it is reassuring to unifying these cards! They also serve to remind everyone of its existence. "

However, the redundancy of vows and the fact that some employees feel "forced" to do can install some discomfort. "For some, this may be the opportunity to knock on the office door supervisors, to drag some small kindnesses" admits Danièle Linhart. "Get pro mails from colleagues who we've never really spoken, where wishing us a happy new year for yourself is quite disturbing," says Lily Ponthieux. "Wishing a happy new year is also a good opportunity to be false ass!" To the question "Do you already have an overdose of" Happy New Year! "At work, and until what date will you wish? "is what users responded on Twitter.
