Россия наращивает экспорт лазеров

В последние годы Россия планомерно увеличивает экспорт лазеров: согласно данным ФТС России, если в 2013 г. поставки равнялись 55 млн долл., то в 2016 г. достигли 129 млн долл., за 10 месяцев 2017 г. экспорт составил 105 млн долл. (исключая крупную поставку в Алжир, связанную с ВПК). Одновременно экспорт частей и комплектующих лазеров (включая небольшие объемы другой спецоптики) вырос с 26 млн долл. в 2013 г. до 105 млн долл. в 2016 г. и 123 млн долл. за 10 месяцев 2017 г.В мировом рейтинге экспортеров лазеров Россия вышла на 6-е место, уступая только Германии (1,44 млрд долл. в 2016 г.), США (1,17 млрд), Китаю (0,47 млрд), Великобритании (0,35 млрд) и Японии (0,23 млрд долл.). Номинально сопоставимые с Россией или даже большие объемы имеют Гонконг и Сингапур, однако у них идет "накрутка" за счет реэкспорта.Основными направлениями экспорта лазеров и их комплектующих из России являются Германия и Китай, в меньшей степени США, Индия, Республика Корея, Белоруссия и другие страны.Экспорт в Германию за 10 месяцев 2017 г. составил 107 млн долл. против 79 млн долл. за весь 2016 г. В импорте Германии Россия занимает примерно 15%, уступая только США.Экспорт в Китай за 10 месяцев 2017 г. составил 89 млн долл., что соответствует уровню прошлого года. В импорте Китая Россия занимает 5-е место после Германии, США, Таиланда и Японии с долей примерно 7%.Главным экспортером выступает НТО "ИРЭ-Полюс" (г. Фрязино, Московская область), входящее в международную группу "IPG Photonics". Как сообщает сама компания, она "является основателем и одной из базовых компаний научно-технической Группы "IPG Photonics Corporation" с производствами и научными центрами в России, Германии, США, Италии, а также 14 представительствами в разных странах мира. Каждый четвертый лазер в мире выпускается Группой "IPG Photonics Corporation"."Подготовлено на основе анализа данных ФТС России и ITC Trade Map.(https://sdelanounas.ru/bl...)

Ученые: Ни в коем случае нельзя спать рядом со смартфоном

Ученые рассказали, что продолжительное использование мобильных телефонов увеличивает риск рака, бесплодия, а также некоторых других заболеваний, и порекомендовали не оставлять гаджет у кровати на ночь, пишет РИА Новости. googletag.cmd.push(function () { googletag.display("NUR_Mobile_Slot2") }); Иллюстративное фото с сайта ITC.uaТакое предупреждение сделали сотрудники Департамента здравоохранения американского штата Калифорния.По их словам, радиочастотное излучение устройств отрицательно влияет на память и слух, вызывает проблемы со сном и обучением, а также может привести к головным болям, бесплодию и онкологическим заболеваниям.Особую опасность чрезмерное использование смартфонов представляет для детей и подростков. if (typeof(pr) == 'undefined') { var pr = Math.floor(Math.random() * 4294967295) + 1; } (function(w, d, n, s, t) { w[n] = w[n] || []; w[n].push(function() { Ya.Context.AdvManager.render({ blockId: 'VI-188418-0', renderTo: inpage_VI-188418-0-410804834, inpage: { slide: true, visibleAfterInit: false, adFoxUrl: '//ads.adfox.ru/252771/getCode?p1=bvzrf&p2=flwt&fmt=1&dl={REFERER}&pr='+pr, insertAfter: 'undefined', insertPosition: '0' }, }, function callback (params) { // callback }); }); t = d.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s = d.createElement('script'); s.type = 'text/javascript'; s.src = '//an.yandex.ru/system/context.js'; s.async = true; t.parentNode.insertBefore(s, t); })(this, this.document, 'yandexContextAsyncCallbacks'); Так как радиочастотная энергия воздействует на их организм в процессе роста, влияние гаджетов становится более вредным и продолжительным. Длительные контакты с мобильным устройством чреваты для подростка звоном в ушах, поведенческими проблемами и даже потерей слуха.Пока что не установлено четкой связи между использованием гаджетов и возникновением заболеваний, однако их отрицательное воздействие на человеческий организм сложно опровергнуть. googletag.cmd.push(function () { googletag.display("NUR_Mobile_Slot3") }); Авторы доклада рекомендуют не держать телефон около головы во время разговора, а использовать наушники. Кроме того, необходимо ограничить контакты с устройством при потоковой передаче данных или скачивании файлов, а также не оставлять телефон в кровати или около нее во время сна.Source: Nur.kz

What's The Best Company To Work For Where You Live?

With unemployment in the US purportedly reaching its lowest level in 17 years (that is, according to the Department of Labor's flawed household survey) employees who once would've been too fearful to leave their jobs are now actively looking for opportunities. With that in mind, many have probably wondered what's the best company to work for where they live? Well, HowMuch.com gathered data compiled by Forbes into an infographic to try and map out the best and largest employers in every country. Forbes recently released a ranking of the best companies in the world using a variety of different perks and benefits, like the quality of food served to employees, parental leave policies or whether companies allow their employees to nap while on the job. HowMuch mapped these companies by paying attention to their market capitalization to get a feel for how large an organization needs to be to afford such high-quality benefits. One company therefore represents each country, color-coded by market cap. Red countries have an employer worth over $100 billion, and dark blue countries boast relatively small employers under $10 billion. Several trends immediately pop out from our map: Red countries with huge companies predominantly originate in North America and Western Europe. Alphabet is the largest on our list by a landslide with a market cap of $579.5 billion, bigger than the entire GDP of Argentina. The three exceptions proving the rule are a tobacco company in India called ITC with a market cap of $51.6 billion, plus Hong Kong (CNOOC, $54.8 billion) and Taiwan (Han Hai Precision, $54.4 billion). All three of these places experienced long-term and unique economic and political relationships with the West. Africa only contributes a single company to Forbes’ list, namely Remgro from South Africa, a conglomerate made of many subsidiaries from different industries. The Middle East and Eastern Europe also have only a few companies that made the cut. Here’s a simplified list of the countries with the best employers in the world, ranked in order of their total market cap: 1. United States - Alphabet: Computer Services - $579.5B and 72,053 employees 2. Switzerland - Nestle: Food Processing - $229.5B and 328,000 employees 3. Netherlands - Unilever: Household/Personal Care - $143.9B and 169,000 employees 4. Germany - Daimler: Auto & Truck Manufacturers - $76.1B and 282,488 employees 5. Hong Kong - CNOOC: Oil & Gas Operations - $54.8B and 19,718 employees 6. Taiwan - Hon Hai Precision: Electronics - $54.4B and 1,000,000 employees 7. Canada - Suncor Energy: Oil & Gas Operations – $51.7B and 12,837 employees 8. India - ITC: Tobacco - $51.6B and 25,564 employees 9. Italy - Enel: Electric Utilities - $47.5B and 62,080 employees 10. Australia - CSL: Biotechs - $43.9B and 16,000 employees Coming in at No. 1 is, of course, Alphabet. It tops the list because of its size and market dominance.

Trump ratchets up pressure on China with rare trade action

The Trump administration fired a trade salvo at China on Tuesday by launching a pair of investigations that could lead to steep duties on imports of aluminum sheet valued at more than $600 million.The move was the first time a U.S. administration has “self-initiated” an anti-dumping or countervailing duty case in at least 25 years and marked an escalation of the Trump administration’s antagonistic trade relationship with Beijing.Most trade remedy cases begin with a petition, whether it be filed by an industry group, a collection of companies, or even an individual firm. Such petitions generally accuse foreign producers of selling products in the U.S. at unfairly low — or “dumped” — prices, or they take issue with a foreign company receiving government subsidies that give them an unfair advantage.But in this case, the Trump administration took action in the absence of a petition as it continues to drive a hard line against China for what the White House views as Beijing’s unfair trade practices and government support of industry.The Commerce Department has had the authority to self-initiate anti-dumping and countervailing duty investigations since 1980, but has used it sparingly. The last self-initiated countervailing duty investigation was against imports of Canadian softwood lumber in 1991, and the last self-initiated anti-dumping case was against imports of Japanese semiconductors in 1985.Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, in a conference call with aluminum industry executives on Tuesday, welcomed the fact that industry-driven anti-dumping and countervailing duty cases are up markedly in the first year of the Trump administration — and said he wants to receive more of them.“While we stand ready to self-initiate investigations where warranted, I once again encourage those with knowledge of unfair trade practices to come forward so that Commerce can defend against such inequities,” Ross said.Commerce worked with the Aluminum Association, an industry group, to help develop the case, but took the step of initiating the two investigations on its own, Ross said during the call. Both the anti-dumping and the countervailing duty probes could take up to a year to complete.For the duties to be imposed, the U.S. International Trade Commission must make both a preliminary and a final determination that U.S. producers have been materially injured or threatened with material injury by the Chinese imports."In this case, available evidence indicates that Chinese producers are selling aluminum sheet in the United States at prices that are less than fair value and that the Chinese government is providing unfair subsidies to producers of aluminum sheet," Ross said. “Available evidence also indicates that U.S. producers of aluminum sheet are suffering injury caused by these imports."Commerce's decision to self-initiate the two investigations “sends a strong signal to China that the United States will aggressively enforce its trade laws,” Aluminum Association CEO Heidi Brock said during the call with Ross.Common alloy aluminum sheet has a variety of uses in building and construction, transportation, basic electrical applications and home appliances. It is “a key product segment for the U.S. aluminum industry," Brock said, noting that U.S. producers supply about 2 billion pounds of sheet each year out of the total U.S. market of about 26 billion pounds.The two investigations will cover about $603.6 million worth of common alloy aluminum sheet imports from China. Ross said the probes are separate from other trade cases involving aluminum that the department is now handling. Those include an active investigation into aluminum foil imports from China as well as a much broader probe, under Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962, which could lead to duties being imposed on aluminum imports from a variety of countries to protect manufacturing interests that are critical to U.S. national security.Despite the administration’s decision to opt for a unilateral move absent a petition, Commerce officials said the two probes would be conducted the same as any other anti-dumping and countervailing duty investigation. According to that process, the ITC will make preliminary injury determinations on or before January 16. If the two cases clear that hurdle, Commerce will announce preliminary countervailing duties in February and preliminary anti-dumping duties in April.President Donald Trump "made a promise to American businesses, workers and farmers that he would vigorously enforce our trade laws and be more enforcement-minded than our predecessors,” Ross said. “Today's action shows that we intend to make good on that promise to the American people."
