first_imgWASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the 90-day truce it reached in its trade war with China as a significant breakthrough despite scant details, a hazy timetable and widespread skepticism that Beijing will yield to U.S. demands anytime soon.“This is just an enormous, enormous event,” Larry Kudlow, President Donald Trump’s top economic adviser, said Monday of the cease-fire that Trump and President Xi Jingping reached over the weekend on the sidelines of an international economic summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina. “This one covers so much ground in some detail, we’ve never seen this before.”Yet many economists raised doubts that much had been — or would be — achieved within three months.“The actual amount of concrete progress made at this meeting appears to have been quite limited,” Alec Phillips and other economists at Goldman Sachs wrote in a research note.During the talks in Buenos Aires, Trump agreed to delay a scheduled escalation in U.S. tariffs on many Chinese goods, from 10 per cent to 25 per cent, that had been set to take effect Jan. 1. Instead, the two sides are to negotiate over U.S. complaints about China’s trade practices, notably that it has used predatory tactics to try to achieve supremacy in technology. These practices, according to the administration and outside analysts, include stealing intellectual property and forcing companies to turn over technology to gain access to China’s market.In return for the postponement in the higher U.S. tariffs, China agreed to step up its purchases of U.S. farm, energy and industrial goods, the White House said.Most economists noted that the two countries remain far apart on the biggest areas of disagreement, which include Beijing’s subsidies for strategic Chinese industries, in addition to forced technology transfers and intellectual property theft.“Ninety days is very little time to fix these perennial issues,” said Bill Adams, senior economist at PNC.Complicating the challenge, Trump’s complaints strike at the heart of the Communist Party’s state-led economic model and its plans to elevate China to political and cultural leadership by creating global champions in robotics and other fields.“It’s impossible for China to cancel its industry policies or major industry and technology development plans,” said economist Cui Fan of the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing.At the same time, analysts said they were relieved that the Trump-Xi meeting at least pressed the “pause” button on tariff hikes. Besides escalating existing tariffs, Trump had threatened to impose import taxes on the remaining $267 billion of U.S. goods from China. This would have raised prices in the United States on many consumer items, including smartphones, clothes and toys.Fears of a hotter trade war had sent financial markets tumbling in October and November. But they jumped Monday in response to Saturday’s truce. The Dow Jones industrial average closed up 288 points, a gain of 1.1 per cent.Megan Greene, chief economist at Manulife, said the market’s recent decline had likely contributed to Trump’s willingness to reach a truce.“We are no longer in the same buoyant economic or markets environment that we enjoyed earlier this year when threats of tariffs against China were first made,” she said.In the meantime, the outlines of the agreement remain hazy and in some cases confusing. Trump tweeted late Sunday that China had agreed to “reduce and remove” its 40% tariff on cars imported from the U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Monday that there was a “specific agreement” on the auto tariffs.Yet Kudlow said later that there was no “specific agreement” regarding auto trade, though he added, “We expect those tariffs to go to zero.”Shares of U.S. and overseas auto companies rose on the announcement, though it’s unclear how much companies like GM or Ford will actually benefit. Nearly all the cars they sell in China are made there.Details regarding China’s pledge to buy more American products — one that it has made before — remain scant. Mnuchin said Monday morning on CNBC that China had offered to buy up to $1.2 trillion of additional U.S. goods, even while the “details of that still need to be negotiated.”But Kudlow said the ultimate amount will depend on market prices and the health of China’s economy.“I would think of that as a broad goal,” he said.State-run Chinese media has described the agreement very differently from how the Trump administration has. It has made no mention of any changes to its auto tariffs. And it has said nothing about a 90-day deadline for the talks.Greene said this might simply reflect China’s communications strategy. Or it might illustrate China’s weak commitment to the deal.China agreed to eliminate the retaliatory tariffs it had placed on U.S. soybeans, according to the White House, which also said Beijing had agreed to buy an unspecified but “very substantial” amount of agricultural and other products. That left some U.S. farmers cautiously hopeful Monday.“This is the first positive news we’ve seen after months of downturned prices and halted shipments,” said John Heisdorffer, a farmer in Keota, Iowa, who is president of the American Soybean Association. “If this suspension of tariff increases leads to a longer-term agreement, it will be extremely positive for the soy industry.”Kevin Scott, who farms near Valley Springs, South Dakota, and serves on the American Soybean Association, said the news provides hope for farmers who are storing their crops while awaiting better prices. But he cautioned that “it’s going to take a little more to move more beans.”Among the skeptics is Scott Gauslow, who grows soybeans and corn near Colfax in eastern North Dakota’s Red River Valley. He noted the lack of specifics in the White House announcement.“What if China calls tomorrow and says, ‘We changed our mind’?” Gauslow said. “There was nothing in writing, which scares me a little bit.”China is the top market for North Dakota’s soybeans. The state’s farmers sell about $1.4 billion to China annually, according to the non-profit North Dakota Trade Office.Some retailers were also encouraged by the agreement, according to the National Retail Federation. At the same time, the federation noted that the truce prolongs the uncertainty around trading with China.Jonathan Gold, an executive at the federation, said most retailers had already ordered goods for the first three months of the year, so the 90-day delay in the tariff hikes won’t affect them. Many companies have already switched their purchases from China to another country to avoid the potential 25% tariff.“The question is, what happens at the end of 90 days?” Gold asked.___Nicholson reported from Bismarck, North Dakota.

Sri Lanka today took note of the role played by late UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan after the devastating 2004 tsunami.In a letter to UN Secretary-General António Guterres, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said that Kofi Annan compassion, sense of empathy, and calm demeanour soothed many who were grieving and in pain following the tsunami which hit Sri Lanka. The Prime Minister said that Kofi Annan was a man of wisdom and his moral voice and guidance will be deeply missed at this time when the world seems to need his presence most.“While Kofi Annan will forever remain in the hearts of the people that he touched, may his memory continue to inspire and guide all of us to continue our journey of working for peace, justice, democracy, rule of law, and human rights for all,” Ranil Wickremesinghe said. (Colombo Gazette) “He served the United Nations with distinction. Calling himself an eternal optimist, he devoted his entire life to work towards peace among nations, peoples and communities, and achieve the noble goals of the United Nations towards achieving better living conditions and a fairer and just world for all, the Prime Minister said in his letter. Annan visited Sri Lanka after the tsunami and visited those affected by the devastation. read more

The advocacy group said Your Baby Can Read’s claims of teaching infants to read were false and deceptive, and asked the FTC to halt the ads.Susan Linn, director of the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, welcomed the demise of Your Baby Can Read, but urged the FTC to press ahead with an investigation.“The commission has in its power to force Your Baby Can to provide compensation for parents who were deceived,” she said Monday. “Even more important, taking action will deter other companies from making deceptive claims about the educational value of screen media for babies.”Betsy Lordan, an FTC public affairs officer, said the commission would not comment on the complaint against Your Baby Can Read. As a general policy, she added, an investigation does not automatically cease if a company goes out of business.Your Baby Can Read — consisting of interrelated videos, flash cards and books — was developed in the late 1990s by Robert Titzer, an educator with a Ph.D. in human performance from Indiana University. More than a million families have used the products since then, according to the Carlsbad, Calif.-based company, which advertised it extensively on TV, at exhibitions, and on its own website, Facebook page and YouTube channel.The website had claimed the best time for children to learn to read is when they are infants and toddlers, before they go to school; it said they could start as young as 3 months old. “Seize this small window of opportunity,” it urged parents.The complaint filed with the FTC rejected this “window of opportunity” claim, as well as many of the other assertions in the ads.The deluxe version of Your Baby Can Read sold on the company website for $200; less expensive versions were available in stores. The videos ranged up to 30 minutes in length, and parents were urged to let their infants watch them twice a day over a period of several months.The company website now consists only of the brief closure announcement, and includes an email address for questions about existing orders.

He based the design on the British ‘Marlborough Street trench’, originally near to Hawthorne Ridge, a fortified German position which was blown up by Allied tunnellers in July 1916.With chalk-based ground and a thin layer of top soil, he said the geology was “very similar” to that of the Somme, allowing him to complete the deeply personal project in honour of his grandfather, John Andrew Robertshaw of the East Yorkshire Regiment, who fought in the Battle of the Somme and the Battle of Arras.The British trench can sleep up to 30 people while the German trench, which is smaller, can sleep 10.

My ambition is for it to become a permanent site for people who can’t go to France and Belgium to go to.“There are no well-constructed trenches in the UK, France and Belgium at all really, so we hope that this can fill the void.” “We’re going to launch a 48-hour trench experience in the autumn, where people can arrive, get into uniform and have a ‘bootcamp’ style introduction in the experience of a Great War soldier.“They’d then go into a night-time routine of working, resting and guarding the trench before having an inspection and breakfast the following morning. It’d be an introduction to life in a trench done in real time.“I wanted to do day-to-day life rather than combat to show the mundane, humdrum normality that was the experience for so many people’s great grandfathers and other relatives.”Saying there were “not many” concessions to health and safety, with real barbed wire, Mr Robertshaw emphasised that anyone hoping to spend 48 hours there would have to undergo a weekend of training and preparation. read more

first_imgOutotec registered a year-on-year improvement in financial performance in 2018, excluding a €110 million ($125 million) ilmenite smelter project provision, the company reported today.The company’s sales increased 12% in 2018 to €1.28 billion, while its order intake jumped 4% to €1.25 billion. The €110 million provision for the Saudi Arabia project saw adjusted earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) come in at -€46.2 million, compared with €33.5 million in 2017, yet President and CEO, Markku Teräsvasara, said adjusted EBIT would have almost doubled to €64 million had it not been for this deduction.“In 2018, we made significant progress in several areas,” Teräsvasara said. “In the beginning of the year, the market for minerals and metals technologies improved, but global macroeconomic uncertainties and reduced metal prices started to affect the market sentiment, and we saw several larger investment decisions being delayed into 2019.“This was demonstrated in our order intake, which increased 4% year-on-year (in comparable currencies 8%) but declined in the fourth (December) quarter from the comparison period,” he said.The company’s largest order in the December quarter – around €34 million – was for the delivery of battery chemicals technology in Finland for the Terrafame plant to be built in Sotkamo. The company has since followed this up with a contract in Australia to convert spodumene to lithium hydroxide.Teräsvasara said profitability continued to improve in the Minerals Processing segment, with EBIT coming in at €78.5 million, compared with €60 million a year earlier.Outotec said copper, gold, and battery metals projects were the most active during 2018, with demand for minerals processing equipment and spare parts stable throughout the year. In the company’s Metals, Energy & Water divisions, meanwhile, “solid demand” was registered in hydrometallurgical and pelletising solutions, as well as sulphuric acid plants, Outotec said.Outotec said the €110 million provision related to possible costs for an ilmenite smelter project in Saudi Arabia. Back in October, the company said it was working with the client to investigate the reasons why one of the repaired furnaces in a first-of-its-kind ilmenite smelter had issues starting up.“The currently estimated provision is based on progress made with the analysis of the furnace,” the company said today, adding that the provision was booked in its December quarter results.Teräsvasara highlighted the “leading technologies” that were part of the company’s core strength in the 2018 results.During the year, the company continued to develop its technological capabilities and grow its patent portfolio, with Outotec’s R&D investments representing 5% of its sales and totalling €57 million last year, he said.Outotec went into a little more detail about this in its 2018 and Q4 review.The first two industrial references of Outotec TankCell® e630s are running at the Buenavista del Cobre concentrator in northern Mexico, the company said.“The site has reported an increase of more than 3% in overall recovery with a higher-grade copper concentrate. The TankCell® e630 flotation cell has a nominal volume of 630 m³ and is equipped with a FloatForce mechanism with a diameter of 2,200 mm,” Outotec said.The company has also developed and filed a patent application for a thermal leaching process to convert spodumene concentrate into battery-grade lithium hydroxide. The lithium hydroxide process has been piloted at the Outotec Research Center in Pori for Critical Elements Corporation in Canada and Keliber Oy in Finland. Lithium hydroxide corresponds to the change in demand in the metal salt markets, it said.Meanwhile, the new Hybrid filter plates that are 40% lighter, and, therefore, more competitive than conventional plates, were introduced to the spare and wear parts markets during 2018, Outotec said. “The new plates also improve the filtration capacity, provide low residual moisture in the cake, and reduce operational costs,” it added.Outotec has also designed a skid-mounted, modular prefabricated sulphuric acid plant which significantly lowers the installation cost and time. In addition, the modular plant offers lower operation costs, increased availability and maintainability, as well as environmentally sound and safe operation, it said. “The innovative plant concept is based on Outotec’s technology and expertise gained from 650 plants delivered globally,” Outotec said.Meanwhile, Outotec is in the middle of a pilot study with Sweden-based miner LKAB to treat industrial waters at its Svappavaara mine in the country. The pilot started in August and consists of nanofiltration and chemical precipitation of sulphate with Outotec’s Ettringite process. The pilot has shown sulphate concentration can be significantly reduced from the inlet value of 1,800 mg/l to the level of 150 mg/l, Outotec said.A new digital product, Outotec Health Indicator, was also introduced last year. This produces data for flotation process control when used together with Courier on-stream elemental analysers. It enables higher performance in terms of concentrate quality and recovery of valuable minerals, according to the company.Lastly, Outotec has been developing MesoTherm™ bio-oxidation technology for leaching base metals. The development work has shown it to be effective on certain copper sulphides, yielding 98% copper dissolution.last_img read more

first_imgDéchets radioactifs : une association poursuit l’Etat en justiceUne association limousine de défense de l’environnement a déposé un recours contre l’Etat, jugeant “illégale” une autorisation de stockage de déchets radioactifs délivrée par la préfecture de Haute-Vienne à Areva.Le recours qui a été déposé devant le Tribunal administratif contre l’Etat par l’association Sources et Rivières du Limousin (SRL, du réseau France Nature Environnement) concerne le stockage de plusieurs tonnes de déchets radioactifs à Compreignac, en Haute-Vienne. La préfecture du département avait laissé jusqu’au 1er septembre à Areva, qui gère le site, pour évacuer les matières en question, des boues radioactives issues du curage d’un étang.À lire aussiLe pied d’éléphant, cette effrayante masse radioactive cachée dans les entrailles de TchernobylPourtant, selon SRL, la préfecture a autorisé Areva à stocker ces boues sur un site voisin, à Bellezane, incapable d’accueillir ces déchets. De plus, cette autorisation “temporaire” (trois ans) est “illégale”, soutient SRL qui invoque une jurisprudence “très claire à ce sujet : une autorisation temporaire ne peut excéder six mois et suppose une étude d’impact qui là n’a pas été produite”, affirme M. Gatet, juriste de l’association.Une plainte contre Areva Le recours déposé hier à Limoges vise donc à ramener l’autorisation à la durée légale de six mois. “Je pense que dans cette affaire, nous avons toujours pris toutes nos responsabilités. Nous nous sommes appuyés sur une circulaire visant à gérer les situations d’urgence”, a indiqué à une correspondante de l’AFP Henri Jean, le secrétaire général de la préfecture.Sources et Rivières du Limousin indique par ailleurs avoir déposé une plainte au pénal contre Areva. Selon M.

first_imgSource = roomsXML Niche, Focus and Diversify – Evolving your Travel BusinessConflicting ideas may be required to find the next thing in your travel business “If you have a heart attack, do you go to a GP or to a heart specialist?”It was a tag line we used for a bit;  It works nicely as a concept – this is what we do and what we do well.  But, we have clients who argue they are too busy to shop around for best price , especially when they need added services, so diversification seems to make sense. What would it cost us to diversify? But is that who we are? What’s the risk reward?I’ve seen some great focus and specialization over time, but one I will pick for a few reasons to highlight the “unknown unknowns”. Marcus Falay ran Fairy Chimney successfully for many years. With the Gallipoli centenary looming, Marcus saw an opportunity to scale up his offering by chartering an entire cruise vessel for Anzac Day 2015. He did and did well, nearly filling the boat, with a stack of accommodation and supporting ground services booked.From there the business specialised and focused on Turkey, taking a strong line of not pushing other destinations.  Business grew, Marcus moved the family over to Turkey for a year or two of change to strengthen the wholesale links and business processes and all was great.One day on the news were the first reports of trouble brewing and before anyone knew it, Turkey was embroiled in the Syria conflict.  Business dried up as fear took hold.  War is not good for business in tourism.So what was the mistake? None.  Focus on your strengths, grow business, war is a total unknown.  But can you protect against a niche focus falling over?  No you can’t; you may find yourself undergoing a reinvention for reasons outside of your control.So what’s the answer?  First of all re-define the question; how can you insulate against unknown unknowns? In other words, what can you do to ease the peaks and troughs in business.With this mindset then comes the planning.  The bills you pay today are done so through cash from a few weeks ago, which came from a booking three months ago which resulted from a strategy from 2 years before.  This means thinking about today, next week, this month, this quarter, this year and then over the horizon.The answer then highlights an opportunity for agents; refine the processes in your business for creating a niche.  It may be as simple as the templates for marketing collateral through to how you identify opportunities and apply resources to them. A niche or specialised service is mostly a packaging of just the right products and service.  How cost effectively you deliver is largely bound by product wholesale costs and your process of getting a product to market.Good process means the entry costs for creating a new product offering lowers significantly and begins to increase the flexibility with which you can offer a range of diversified niche services. Yes, through diversification, which flies in the face of being a specialist.  Diversification makes it extremely hard to deliver a focused message and stand out.  Being everything to everyone is pretty hard to pull off.Don’t do it all at once.Improved process gives you the ability to diversify your niche offerings as they are needed so whilst you are working for today, you are rolling something out for next month, which will generate revenue in a few months time and let you pay for something next year. Meanwhile, you have something up your sleeve ready for activation. Or Killing off – whichever comes first!The saying “the best plan falls apart when the bullets start flying” (or something like that) rings true for business; planning 2 years in advance is tricky, but generating potential ideas and stacking them up ready to fit into a work schedule makes great sense.Like a holiday. roomsXML – More Suppliers, Hot Deals www.roomsxml.com learn more about roomsXML.com herelast_img read more

first_imgAugust 21 , 2018 PRESS RELEASESouth Africa – South Africa’s apple and pear production is down by more than 20% year-on-year as a result of drought conditions which will impact the amount of Tru-Cape fruit available on supermarket shelves.For Tru-Cape Fruit Marketing, the largest exporter of South African apples and pears, into more than 104 countries, this campaign – The Tru-Cape Quest promotion – follows a successful campaign five years ago when hail severely damaged crops and pockmarked fruit. Then, Tru-Cape’s #UglyPretty campaign asked supermarkets and end consumers to look beyond the superficial appeal of the fruit towards the goodness that lay beneath.Marketing Director of Tru-Cape, Conrad Fick explains: “Here too, there is a need brought about by the impact of the severe drought in the Western Cape. As there is a shortage of fruit available in the market we are incentivising our customers to make the extra effort to find Tru-Cape apples and pears even when stocks are more limited than usual.” The Tru-Cape campaign takes place from August 24 to the end of September and incentivises customers to search for the fruit in stores and photograph themselves with the fruit and hash-tag #staytruetotrucape and #trucapequest. “Entrants could win a R10 000 gift voucher or one of two R5000 gift vouchers. One of three iPad Air 2’s with branded covers are also up for grabs. There will  be spot prizes of 100 Tru-Cape Kidz soft toy sets for entrants,” Fick explains.Tru-Cape commissioned interactive agency, Red Cherry to create a new television commercial and digital campaign to raise awareness and with a call to action. “We have used radio to support this campaign as well as limited print advertising but also linked the campaign to our first-of-the-kind game app, Fruit-Full, that educates players about the challenging process of producing, packing and marketing fruit.“A separate competition that will run on Fruit-Full. Entrants stand a chance to win one of five iPad Air 2’s. To enter they need to download Fruit-Full, link it to Facebook and enter the code TruQuest in the game. To double their chances of winning they can enter the barcode of product purchased,” he says.According to Fick, the campaign intrinsics will be entrenched through in-store tastings in 50 supermarkets like Checkers, Food Lover’s Markets and selected Spar stores and grocers. “The store environment is the touch point where we will be able to measure if our efforts to continue our market-leadership position, despite reduced volume and the concomitant risks that of out-of-sight-out-of-mind brings, have succeeded.”Fick ends on a sobering note: “We are incentivising our customers and rewarding them for making the special effort. If the campaign doesn’t translate into sustained sales then the following years’ harvests become at risk – all growers are faced with making economic decisions whether to reinvest and replant or not. The pressures on growers in our current economic and political climate are already so great that growers need all the support we can offer them.”center_img You might also be interested inlast_img read more

first_imgOfficials expect no problems in the supply of electricity in Cyprus, despite high temperatures during the summer season.According to Christakis Hadjilaou, the Deputy Spokesman for the Transmission System Operator Cyprus (TSO) the demand for electricity ranges between 900 and 1.000 MW.Speaking to CNA today, Hadjilaou assured that “at present, there is sufficient energy supply and there is no problem”. Both the TSO and the Cyprus Electricity Authority are ready to tackle any problems that might arise, he added.As locals depart for their summer vacations, the TSO Deputy Spokesman says he expects a decrease in demand, estimated at around 10%. At the same time, Hadjilaou says holiday resorts in Cyprus will not face any shortages, despite soaring tourist arrivals. “There is sufficient supply, both in the transmission and in the production system, we will not face any problems” he notes.Energy consumption in August remains within “predictable” levels, as temperatures range between 37 and 38 degrees Celsius. This is 20% lower than last month’s consumption, when Cyprus was faced with a heat wave, Hadjilaou observed. In July, consumption reached its peak at 1.100 MW, he said.Asked if there was any request from Cyprus’ Turkish-occupied areas for the supply of electricity, Hadjilaou said no such request has been made.

Government independent revenue collection under the Treasury Single Account (TSA) initiative” the CBN agreed that “a fee of 1% of funds collected is payable; and this would be shared by solution provider and participating banks” Further investigations revealed that the apex bank before choosing Remita as gateway examined existing local and foreign infrastructures before its endorsement and choice of the platform Aside approaching NIBSS; a company owned by all Nigeria banks; including the CBN the apex bank also reviewed the suitability of RTGS provided by CMA a foreign software house and

Systemspecs to deploy Remita as the CBN TSA Payment Gateway” the CBN source said On the Kogi Senator’s disclosure that Remita is a collection agent the CBN source debunked this by saying “TSA is not

Bourguignon Wikimedia Commons A French mathematician of global renown and with a wealth of international connections has been tapped to become the new president of the European Research Council (ERC) Europe’s funding agency for frontier research Jean-Pierre Bourguignon the longtime head of the Institute of Advanced Scientific Studies (IHES) in Bures-sur-Yvette France is slated to succeed Austrian sociologist Helga Nowotny who has presided over the agency since 2010 The European Commission which makes the final decision has not yet announced the appointment and a commission spokesperson declined to comment today But a source with inside knowledge of the process confirms to ScienceInsider that Bourguignon 66 is slated to succeed Nowotny after she steps down on 31 December Bourguignon said farewell to IHES a private institute founded in 1958 and modeled on the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton on 31 August Bourguignon is a graduate of the cole Polytechnique a famed elite school near Paris that produces many of the France’s leaders in government science and business (Among the graduates in his class of 1966 are Jean-Martin Folz the former CEO of Peugeot Citron; former European Parliament member Alain Lipietz; and former Louis Vuitton CEO Yves Carcelle) Bourguignon specialized in differential geometry and received his PhD at the University of Paris VII During his 19-year tenure at the helm of IHES he secured new funds including from industry and attracted top talent from around the world He also helped the institute traditionally focused on math branch out into fields like theoretical biology according to a recent profile story in Le Monde EuroScience a Strasbourg France-based organization of European scientists welcomed the impending appointment in a statement issued today "Professor Bourguignon has been crucial to maintaining and strengthening the atmosphere at the IHES for original creative research at the very highest levels and to attract the best minds for shorter and longer stays at the IHES" the statement said "At the same time he has built a worldwide community of supporters not least in Asia for the IHES which guarantees long-term financial stability of this private Institute" Bourguignon was a member of the group that got EuroScience started in the 1990s and later served on its board He was also president of France’s mathematical society from 1990 to 1992 and of the European Mathematical Society from 1995 to 1998 In the first 7 years of its existence the ERC has become popular among European scientists because in contrast to other EU funding mechanisms it uses excellence as the only criterion while its application process is relatively straightforward But the fact that a disproportionate number of its grants arrive in the union’s richer countries has occasionally sowed discontent in eastern and southern member states Nowotny—who declined to comment on the appointment—says the key challenge for her successor will be to maintain ERC’s reputation for excellence in the science it funds and its review process even as its budget is set to increase from 71 billion between 2007 and 2013 to around 13 billion in the next 7-year period (The ERC’s Executive Agency in Brussels will not grow at the same clip Nowotny says so the agency’s workload is likely to increase) Another challenge will be to attract more grantees from outside the European Union she adds Nowotny says the groundwork for that has been laid by ERC Secretary General Donald Dingwell who over the past 2 years has traveled around the world to spread the word about ERC’s activities As it happens Bourguignon is a frenetic traveler as well In the story in Le Monde he said he has seen Paris’s Charles de Gaulle airport "close to a thousand times" during his tenure at IHES and colleagues have gotten used to receiving e-mails from him from unusual places and at unusual times Indeed physicist Nikita Nekrasov of Stony Brook University in New York told the paper "Jean-Pierre is a quantum phenomenon: Lots of energy and momentum and completely delocalized" *Correction 28 October 5:38 pm: This story has been changed to
