Rafael Pampillon, Professor of Economics at IE Business School is shown in the same line: rising prices has generated it subsidy to ethanol and biofuels, which have generated a perverse effect of scarce food. It must also take into account, that high oil prices affect the latest agricultural techniques that rely on increasingly more energy. Due to the low growth of the supply and the strong increase in demand, cereal stocks are at its level lowest since early 1980s. Costa says that the natural and demographic effects are changing relationships with nature, and the relationship with food will be one of the effects. I think that prices will stabilize at a level minimally something higher, albeit with fluctuations at that level for reasons of speculation. For its part, Pampillon recognizes that prices will thus remain high while biofuels continue subsidizing, the world economy is still relatively strong, and as countries develop you prefer a cheaper energy, but use agricultural products dearer food, especially for the poorest. In addition, adds that the European Commissioner for trade, Peter Mandelson, recently stated that there are two ways to react to the food crisis that we face. The first, with further growth of domestic agricultural production and more protectionism.

The second, with an agreement in the framework of the Doha round undertaken great negotiation to liberalize trade world–that would facilitate a more efficient trade in economically more affordable food. The solution is necessarily to eliminate subsidies for biofuels. For the first time, until the means of communication is unanimous. World agricultural production has grown more than food and the population wouldn’t have to miss, Pampillon believes. Insists on pointing out, that the world can currently live with a barrel of oil to $110, and we started to think about how we can live with a price of $300, exemplifies Costa. Pampillon believes that the current trend, both in the U.S.


It is here where he meets Erhard Weigel, Professor of mathematics and philosopher. Through him Leibniz began to understand the importance of mathematical demonstration method for disciplines such as logic and philosophy. Weigel believed that number was the fundamental concept of the universe and their ideas had a considerable influence on Leibniz. In October 1663 he returned to Leipzig to begin his PhD in law. He obtained his degree (M.A.) in philosophy for a dissertation which combined aspects of philosophy and law studying linkages between these disciplines and the mathematical ideas he had learned of Weigel. Few days after the submission of his dissertation, his mother died. After getting his law degree, he worked on his Habilitation in philosophy. His work, art Dissertatio (dissertation on the art of combination) combinatorics, was published in 1666.

In this work Leibniz raises the reduction of all the reasoning and findings to the combination of basic elements such as numbers, letters, sounds and colors. Against wind and tide by his growing reputation you was denied the doctorate in law in Leipzig. It is not very clear why happened, perhaps because I was very young and there was no sufficient charges. It was suggested to wait to the next year, but Leibniz was not willing to accept delays and went to the University of Altdorf where he obtained his doctorate in February 1667 for his dissertation De Casibus Perplexis (on perplexed cases). Leibniz broke the oath of a professorship in Altdorf because he had other issues in view. He was for a time Secretary of the society of Alchemy in Nuremberg, where he met the baron Johann Christian Boineburg. In November of 1667 Leibniz was already living in Frankfurt, employed by Boineburg.

Companies Participates

Throughout 2009 Sanchez-Pando, S.A has carried out more than 20 presentations of your Flexi system, a solution for afflicted interior walls from moisture problems that has been rehearsed by Labein-Tecnalia.Las certification lab days have approached companies related with the sectors of construction and rehabilitation of buildings, and in them has been detail exposed this innovative solution, which has been developed and distributes Sanchez-Pando, SA. Representatives of hundreds of firms have attended these training appointments which have been developed both at the headquarters of the company, in the Valle de Trapaga Vizcaino municipality, and in his Madrid delegation of Loeches. Companies of Burgos, Cantabria, La Rioja, Vizcaya, Alava, Guipuzcoa and Madrid have gone to these calls.Commissioning obrLa commissioning system Flexi work has been one of the central elements of the presentations made by the specialists of Sanchez-Pando, S.A. To do this, all the technical exhibitions have been supported by a few panels of sample where you could appreciate, very graphically, each of the phases of implementation of the system, since the preparation of the base until the final finish surface.During these sessions, has wanted to give prominence to assistants professionals to meet their needs, their opinion about the system and previous experiences with other systems. In this way you have been able to collect suggestions, identify the most relevant aspects for the installers and even discover other possible applications of this solution in the treatment of walls with moisture problems.Along with the explanation of the technical characteristics and operation of Flexi system, has also taken the opportunity to provide information of other interesting solutions that Sanchez-Pando, S.A, manufactures or markets, such as those related to the thermal and acoustic insulation tiles for corridors or greenroofs Kubertol.Solucionar problems and installers prevenirlosVarios who attended the conferences already have begun to employ the Flexi system when in the works where they work have located a moisture problem on interior walls.

Pool Municipal

Diving and ecological baths. That is what from now on will have the residents of the town of Alaquas valencia. And it is that its municipal swimming pool, thanks to awareness of sustainability of its City Hall and the work done by SunEnergy, the Spanish renewable energy business group, has a system of micro-cogeneracion in its facilities that will save them lots of energy. It’s a great energy efficiency system that is simultaneously produces electricity and thermal energy from primary energy contained in a fuel. Something that has been a challenge at a technical level since it had be combined with existing installations of gas boilers and solar thermal support, explains Jana Peiro, Director of Marketing and Expansion of SunEnergy. For this purpose we have installed a micro-cogeneracion central in its municipal swimming pool combined with a conventional gas boiler and solar thermal installation already exists, add the directive.

More swimming ecological well things the heated municipal swimming pool located in the complex sport of the town has opted for the CHP technology which will lead to a considerable saving in energy consumption, thanks to the micro-cogenerador in parallel with the boiler SunEnergy has installed. Existing boilers gas consumption has risen to an annual average of 860,000 kwh in previous exercises. And this counting that already relies on an installation of solar thermal energy with a surface of about 255 m2 useful acquisition?, adds Pere Negre, Director of engineering of Sun Energy. Saving that has needed a detailed study and that has been achieved thanks to a micro-cogenerador in parallel with the boiler. The study of the feasibility of implementation of a team is key when arises to perform a new installation in an existing building and that already houses such complex facilities for servicing the heated swimming pools (solar installation, boilers, deposits of accumulation, water treatment plants, etc.) additional as the micro-cogenerador.
