The heart is the only broken instrument that works.” — T. E. Kalem

India and China are competing hard for every possible inch in the battle of capturing the highest possible market share in the scientific instrument segment. China has many advantages at the moment though India could soon outpace them in this category. Below is a brief analysis:

Crouching Tiger ( India’s Perspective)

The scientific instruments segment globally offers huge market potential to the Indian companies. With the steep rise in population and the occurrences of new diseases, the governments all over the globe have renewed their focus on the health sector like never before. In India, the health ministry has taken several initiatives to improve the overall medical conditions and its availability. All this has pushed the demand for scientific instruments manifolds.

Indian companies have many advantages in this sector including easy access and availability of the raw material. So far, Ludhiana (Punjab) has been the hub of scientific instruments manufacturing, other cities are also being incentivised to gear up towards this industry. Another advantage which Indian companies have is that they have a better image in the world market in terms of being more investor friendly and offering ease of regulations as compared to China.

Experts believe that after China the world is looking at India to be their main manufacturing hub and Indian scientific instrument manufacturers shouldn’t loose this opportunity and seize it with both hands.

Hidden Dragon (Chinese scenario)

The scientific instrument market in China is growing at a rapid pace. Though, China has usually been criticised in the past for excessive mass production without giving much thought to the quality, even then, the Chinese companies have continued to make deep penetration into the world markets, in their bid to emerge as market leaders.

Industry insiders reveal that currently the Chinese companies have their hold in the low grade instrument segment and the high grade instrument segment is controlled by international majors like Agilent, Johnson & Johnson, Pan Pacific, Siemens, Bayer, Philips, Oxford, Omron Japan, Hitachi, Toshiba Deng Jun and others.

It appears as if the Chinese government isn’t too amused with the current standing and is taking some bold steps to strengthen the domestic companies by drafting some policies which may eventually sound a death knell for the foreign companies. Though this change may benefit other low cost destinations like indian scientific instruments makers etc.

Experts, also point out that China will eventually have to open up its economy, before it could realize its dream of being acknowledged as a market leader and when it does that it will make the battle field more even. Nevertheless, as of now china poses a serious competition to other countries in the immediate future.

Climate change has become a frequently discussed issue over the past years, but in the last year there has been more and more discussion about it. The reason for this is that there is scarcely a day which goes by now without there being a major news story about unusual weather patterns.

Just this Summer and Autumn (2007), we have seen floods in the UK, and in the US. Drought in parts of Australia has been even more acute that usual, and Greece and California have experienced massive forest fires. However, by far the most dramatic has been the completely unexpected extent of the melting of the north west passage in the Arctic, and we have all seen the satellite images showing a much shrunken ice cap right across the whole Arctic region.

Global climate change is the single biggest environmental threat facing the planet. Climate change can occur naturally, and many argue that despite the majority scientific view that the cause is human activity, the cause is natural. Others argue that the increase on carbon dioxide in the atmosphere sounds as if it has risen hugely, the actual amount compared with the other gases is still very small. They reason that as it is still a very small proportion of our atmosphere, how could it be having the effect attributed to it?

Nevertheless, despite questions of this sort, the climate change or global warming we have seen does match the rise in human population and activity since the start of the industrial revolution, and it would be a rare man indeed who could deny that. Hence, most of us are beginning to accept global warming as a reality, and furthermore that human caused climate change is a fact.

Climate change impacts will range from affecting agriculture, further endangering food security, sea-level rise and the accelerated erosion of coastal zones, plus increasing intensity of natural weather extremes. The reality of climate change, and mankind’s causal role in the process, are facts that must now be universally accepted.

Increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere are likely to further accelerate the rate of climate change. Sadly, it will be the poor, the young, and the weak who will suffer most. Children in developing countries are likely to face the greatest risks from climate change.

Nevertheless, we should not despair. There is much to be done, and much that can be done which will make a difference. The Kyoto Protocol is the international plan to reduce climate change pollution. Europe has led the diplomatic efforts which produced the Kyoto agreement. It is far from perfect but it is the only show in town which can produce change in the developing nations.

Rich countries, like the US and Australia don’t want to take action to stop climate change. That is understandable, as their economies will suffer if it puts heavy extra costs on businesses. It is argued that it is not proven yet that the extra burden will actually yield the degree of improved sustainability our globe will need in order to recover in time to avoid the worst effects. Yet, such sentiments are becoming less common.

Such ideas have been strongest in the US. However, former US vice-president Gore now shares the Nobel peace prize for his work on climate change. An election campaign is starting for George Bush’s successor, and even Bush is mellowing toward active support of climate change alleviation policies.

Across the whole US, local governments are also increasingly addressing climate change with their own solutions, giving much room for optimism.

It was decided at Kyoto that the developed nations would reduce their emissions, and that they would also pay the developing nations to avoid or reduce their rising emissions of carbon dioxide. It was reasoned that the best way to get this to work would be to create a market out of “carbon credits”, the carbon tonnages saved by investment from the west. The market would allow the high carbon emitting companies in the developed nations offset their continued emissions at home by paying for emissions savings overseas. This would have the additional benefit of raising the income of the poorest nations.

The British government, which is convinced that climate change has to be tackled, is leading the United Kingdom in its ambitious self-set targets for emissions reductions. Many other European nations also have similar policies in place. Scandinavian countries are even more advanced in their emissions reductions programmes than the UK.

So, the science is clear: climate change is happening, and it is linked directly to human activity. To bring climate change to a halt, global greenhouse gas emissions must be reduced significantly. But by how much, and how soon must we change our habits?

Many of the temperature data and computer models used to predict climate change are themselves uncertain, but experts now agree that the world needs to react very quickly now, or the problem of control will become exponentially more difficult.

The cost associated with the effects of climate change is projected to increase substantially over time with rising temperatures, and the longer we delay the worse it will be. To state that is simple common sense.

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is one of the organisations which is working globally and in the UK to raise awareness about the causes and impacts of climate change and the available solutions. Wildlife organisations stress that biodiversity will be severely affected by climate change and sea-level rise, with an increased risk of extinction of very many species.

For some species however, the climate will be good, but at great human cost. The unobtrusive mosquito’s story illustrates a sobering consequence of climate change. Fewer frosts and generally warmer temperatures will allow the spread of diseases like malaria into more temperate climates. The species best suited to adapting may not be the ones people want to survive.

In general, we can reduce our demands on nature and the tonnages of carbon dioxide emitted by adopting sustainable development. Sustainable development can increase the capacity for adaptation and mitigation, and reduce vulnerability of societies to the impacts of climate change. Humans are already adapting to climate change, and further adaptation efforts will be necessary during coming decades.

New technologies are part of man’s adaptation and are being developed which are ‘green’ and will help reduce or even reverse climate change effects. These technologies will help us to be better stewards of the environment, and they will help us to confront the serious challenge of global climate change.

There is much that can be done to stop catastrophic climate change but decisive action is needed from governments and industry now. Today, action is occurring at every level to reduce, to avoid, and to better understand the risks associated with climate change.

Climate Change for Better or Worse is a web site which was launched to help you understand what climate change is and how you can take action to combat it. Without action, climate change will cause the extinction of countless species and destroy some of the world’s most precious ecosystems, putting millions of people at risk. Diseases, declining crop yields, and natural disasters are just a few of the other impacts of climate change that could follow and devastate the world’s most vulnerable communities.

Delaying emission reduction measures limits the opportunities to achieve low stabilization levels and increases the risk of severe climate change impacts. Please act now to encourage your politicians to take urgent action.

The growth of the war on international terrorism is got attention. Israel has had enough and is going after Hezbollah with revenge in Lebanon. Actually, every country has a right to be against to International Terrorism. However, the question whether Israel is going to far has been considered, and some people think that it is. In contrast, others who observe the unfolding of events ask 2 questions; if your country were attacked by international terrorists sponsored by larger nations, what would happen? What would you do?

 

 

Israelis are saying now that they must up the ante on the International Terrorists NOW! Perhaps the rest of the World might use this distraction to attack them everywhere they are. Some say we MUST continue the fight on International Terrorism. They say that Weakness is not an option and We must stand united and mentally tough. Yet the opposition is blaming President Bush? That is a little tough to swallow.

 

You see, International Terrorism from radical Islamic fundamentalists has been going on long before President Bush came to office. Surely it is time something be done about this. Many who are in favor of defeating International Terrorism say that;

 

The liberal lie of appeasement does not work; we need not stand around like wimps while innocent people get blown up in all countries around the world and we have a real problem and it is not the President of the United States of America it is a liberal base, which is living in la la land refusing to face reality that International Terrorists kill innocent life.

 

These same folks who are in favor of taking out all the International Terrorists say that those who support, harbor or sponsor them are not innocent. Obviously you can see the bitter disagreement between sides and this is why negotiation is slow to work and with each bomb or missile attack a cease-fire seems even less possible. Perhaps these are points to consider so, we ought to think on this in 2006.

This week Craig looks at the expressed powers of the President of the United States – that is the ones you can find in the Constitution. From appointing judges and granting pardons, to vetoing laws and acting as the nation’s chief diplomat on foreign policy, the Commander in Chief is a pretty powerful person, but actually not as powerful as you might think. The Constitution also limits presidential powers to maintain balance among the three branches of government. Next week we’ll talk about the president’s powers NOT mentioned in the Constitution – implied powers.

Grey’s Anatomy actor Jesse Williams gave a passionate speech against the current system of impunity for police brutality. Racists want him fired for it, so they started a change.org petition. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“An online petition popped up over the weekend on Change.org calling for Williams to be fired from his longtime role in the hit ABC sitcom Grey’s Anatomy…

The petition was started by a user named Erin Smith, who condemned Williams’s “negative attitude.” Smith also called Williams’s words “hate speech against law enforcement and white people,” and wrapped up with the controversial hashtag #AllLivesMatter…

Williams gave his speech on June 26 after accepting the 2016 BET Humanitarian Award. In it, he gave a searing indictment of racism in America.”*

Generations of African rural communities have used locally grown plant extracts and oils for nutritional, medicinal and cosmetic purposes. One such plant product is marula oil, which is extracted from the fruit kernels of the marula tree, native to southern Africa. Previously unheard of outside of Africa, the oil is becoming increasingly popular because of its superb antioxidant, nourishing and moisturising properties.

The increasing global demand for marula oil and other seed oils brings enormous potential to local producers in southern African countries. Swazi Indigenous Products (SIP) is a community-owned company that strives to empower rural women in the fight against poverty, generate income sustainably and create high quality natural products using traditional indigenous knowledge. SIP is an accredited Fair Trade Organization and operates in line with the highest standards of Fair Trade. The company operates from a small factory in Mpaka, in the heart of the Swazi lowveld, producing a range of natural cosmetics products using marula oil and other natural plant-based ingredients.

Income Generation
Around 2,000 rural Swazi women generate much-needed income by selling marula nuts at fair trade prices. Many of the harvesters live in extremely poor, drought-stricken areas and have previously relied on UN Food Aid to survive. Through their sales of marula seeds, the women now earn the money needed to buy basic food and clothing, access medical care and pay school fees. With production set to increase, thanks to an increase in consumer demand, local women will be able to improve their situations even more.

Quality Control
SIP staff travel into the rural communities to buy the kernels, weighing and grading them at source to ensure high quality raw material. The kernels are then brought to the factory at Mpaka where they are manually cold pressed to produce pure, natural marula oil. The oil is then tested in the laboratory to ensure that only top quality is produced. SIP then exports the oil to cosmetics companies or uses it in the company’s own skin care oils and natural cosmetics.

Added Value
Instead of just simply exporting the oil as a commodity product to cosmetics companies in the developed world, SIP adds value locally with its own range of pure, simple and natural cosmetics, including lip balms, shower gels and hand lotions. In addition, SIP has gained organic certification for its marula oil, becoming the first Swazi organisation to achieve this.

Environmental Sustainability
Swaziland retains a wonderful biodiversity of indigenous plants and trees and as elsewhere in the world, that biodiversity is under threat. SIP works in harmony with its surroundings and is completely environmentally sustainable. Marula fruit is left to fall when ripe and just 5000 of the two million marula trees in Swaziland are used to meet current requirements. In addition, the company is working with suppliers on community planting of a range of indigenous trees.
