Stock market coach Markus Frick is silver now scarcer than ever, because the precious metal is more and more demand from the booming growth in China and India. Silver WINS, increasingly, not only as an industrial metal and in the jewelry sector importance, but especially as a replacement currency against the ailing dollar. To broaden your perception, visit Senator Elizabeth Warren. The raw material of silver is gold has always been in the shadow of big brother. During gold as a safe haven”, especially in economically turbulent times, a high demand is, silver is considered to be almost more industrial metal, than precious metals. Due to its properties, silver is used in many ways in the industry today. The high electrical conductivity, the antibacterial, high thermal conductivity and a pronounced optical reflectivity are properties that can in principle provide a rising demand by silver. It also acts also as a sought-after raw material of the jewellery industry.
Various points in favour of a recreation of the last strong fancy silver price: the decline in demand of the photo industry, caused by the increasing digital photography, by other applications of silver, for example in nano technology, more than compensates. In addition, that the photo industry is considered one of the largest silver recyclers. Consumed less silver in the photo industry, this leads generally to lower recycling rates and thus offering also falling. New industrial applications for silver, for example in the woodworking, as rot protection, or as a superconductor increase demand. Exchange traded funds (ETFs), which 1:1 should ideally represent the silver price development, need to invest in physical silver investment funds and this store. Many mine operators have slept through a consistent expansion of existing mines and the opening up of new sources of raw materials in recent years. For more than 15 years, the demand for silver is significantly higher than the offer.
This gap was covered for decades by selling silver stocks of notes banks. Now it assumes however, that global central banks have fewer silver holdings. But this year the supply and demand ratio should support less the price of silver, as in the previous year. Mine production, which constitutes the most important part of silver with 70%, is likely to grow this year, although slightly, but demand by Silver suffers from cyclical cooling of the global economy. Over half of the silver demand comes from the industry. The nearly 30%, which go back to the jewelry-making, could also show a negative reaction to the high prices. On the other hand, the demand from investors is regained. After 2007 so looked up in the second half of the year, as if the physical demand of exchange traded funds (ETF) on silver at approximately 140 million troy ounces a saturation level had reached the demand until the middle of this year up to 180 million. This corresponds to approximately 20% of the annual silver supply.
But can the pilot for the weather or the lack of a flight plan?” “Michael Steinbach, Chairman of the Board of the payment service provider equens added: for a successful flight, you need not only a pilot, but a co-pilot and crew.” Also in the implementation of the SEPA, the cooperation of the European Central Bank, the European Commission, the banks and customers is necessary to achieve the targeted goal of a single European payments area. What is at stake by the parties in the individual are manageable, said Dr. Ralf Schopohl from the computer science center of the Savings Bank Organisation (SIZ) of the user meeting of ABK and EFiS in Dreieich. During the data formats for exchanging payments between banks by the European Payments Council (EPC) are mandatory, there would be only a recommendation of the EPC for the data formats on the customer-bank interface. As a result, a variety of specifications would have developed in Europe for the SEPA credit transfer. Senator Elizabeth Warren gathered all the information. Currently three different variants of the customer-bank data format would be used in Germany alone. Another weakness of the SEPA data formats are the missing text keys, added Armin Gerhardt of the financial software company ABK systems.
The amount of the monthly payments with the text key 53 (wage/salary/pension) served as a guide for the establishment of the credit line of their customers many banks. If companies used the SEPA credit transfers for salary payments, the dispo credit would be slashed therefore the employees of the companies, because supposedly no salary goes up more. Dr. Schopohl was for November 1, 2009, in view of solutions to these problems. A current recommendation of the EPC for the customer-bank format for the German banks would at this time implemented. Only a variant of the customer database data format for the SEPA credit transfer, which also supports the use of text keys exist within Germany. Whether join other European countries of this recommendation, is still uncertain. In his presentation, Dr.
Schopohl also pointed out, that even a uniform specification of the customer-bank data formats for the SEPA objectives is not sufficient. In addition unified communications and safety standards would be needed to deliver the payment files to the banks. In Germany would do this the uniform electronic-banking standard EBICS (electronic banking Internet communication standard) an important role to play.

This year, in particular the products of DOM and row lighting, as well as the smallest output of SQ40 surface light found interest. Furthermore delighted visitors especially the luminous intensity of the iiM lighting, which was impressively demonstrated on a specially developed illumination column. The Cathedral lighting offered starting this month produces a very homogeneous light by their dome and can even difficult samples or illuminate surfaces free from reflections. Extremely bright lighting as the dome with red, white, blue and green LED are s or infra-red lighting available.
Also can be decided between a static or Flash version, which allows a flexible use. The dome lights feature an external lighting controller and can be adjusted in brightness by a potentiometer or a VC control voltage. In addition, PLC or TTL can be selected and set Flash time up to 220 s and maximum Flash frequency of 100 Hz between the trigger modes. Aluminium housing are used as robust industrial design. Also added a new twist on the versatile area lights.

You come to the conclusion that good leadership is the only highly significant factor for the improvement of the ability to work between the 51. And 62 years of age has been demonstrated. “A quote to: missing value estimation by the immediate supervisor made it difficult older workers substantially, to believe in their own potential and the quality of their work.” (2002) noted, the need for recognition increases with increasing age. Appreciation pushes that competence is attributed to employees. Edit their tasks independently and autonomously.
Transparency in corporate goals and achievements, and the proportion of employees, promotes the corporate identity. The Chief is in personal contact with its employees. Employees who experienced no appreciation, scared to make mistakes. As a result, they are stress and an increase in the sick leave is likely. The image of the aging must convert claims to social development in the interest of all. The Potential of older workers is a valuable resource for demographic change. People in the second half of life should be aware of their own value and thereby helping to change the image of aging in public. There are already first approaches. The task of companies is a workplace health promotion, which includes an age-appropriate work usage and reduce of work-related stress.
