The imminent arrival of new technologies for a vine … – bulletins-electroniques.com

The imminent arrival of new technologies for a vine more “sustainable”


Some 250 participants were present at the Congress of Beaune, on 4 and 5 November to the 3rd edition Great Rendezvous Burgundy Techniques entitled “Innovation is key to viticulture of tomorrow.” Alternating with another highlight of the vine and wine sector Vinosciences centered more on the professions of research topics and therefore more upstream, this biennial event organized by the Burgundy Wine Board will have an opportunity to discuss “‘ Innovation for cultural practices “but also of” innovation for the quality of the harvest and the reduction of energy consumption. ” Back on the two days that confirmed the emergence of a vine called “sustainable”.

“Awareness around the sustainability of the vine is growing. Every winemaker can work on his plot, of course, but managing it in the context of a global vision of the territory, “says Jean-Philippe Gervais, director of technical center and quality of Wine Board of Burgundy (Burgundy Wine Board). And the latter to explain that sustainability goes including better management of energy costs, better control of the quality of the environment and increased environmental protection. “Where in particular the need to reduce inputs, knowing how to use them in the right place at the right time,” he adds. In this context, innovation is obviously the key to tomorrow, the title of the two day Beaune having helped remind those who have forgotten. Because contrary to what the word “tradition” can evoke some consumers, innovation is never far away, what is more like a vineyard in Burgundy. “When t he vineyards were decimated by phylloxera, we then innovated by the replanting of an original way that was not previously used,” the representative of the Burgundy Wine Board.

Today, growers are faced with wood diseases, the golden flavescence and a number of pests, “and it’s not perfecting old solutions that we can deal with these scourges,” observes Jean-Philippe Gervais. It is therefore urgent to integrate a number of new tools to the practice of viticulture. For example, concerning diseases, today using only their eyes technicians and winegrowers spot the symptoms by browsing through the vineyards. That said, embedded systems equipped with specific sensors can now consider doing this work faster and more accurately. Thus, by capturing the hedge leaf, that is to say the volume of leaves and grapes present as found on a vine, it would then be possible to transmit the collected data to a spray which could then be injected in time real, not a stan dard amount on the whole plot, but the necessary quantities to the right place. “Approved by the cluster Vitagora, DAMAV, which has been retained by the Single Interministerial Fund (FUI), aims to develop the three-year period an onboard camera system on a UAV to scan more quickly vineyards and thus earlier detect the presence of disease, “he said.

This precision viticulture emerging with electrical and straddle tractors that turn into real platforms with multiple sensors, all coupled to geo-location information, the precision is of the order of a few centimeters, was the focus of discussions during the two days. Rest now transfer these technologies, which some are already available, so that the business sector can appropriate them. “Some growers have a vision of their micro-micro-plot, especially in a region where some are still working very traditional way. The challenge is to explain to them that the same quality can be obtained by using fewer pesticides and less fuel, “says Jean-Philippe Gervais. Hence the need for a major extension work in the industry, but also training in high schools from which come the wine technicians of tomorrow, those for whom sustainable vineyard will be a reality.

New technologies: what to expect -or craindre- 2020 – RTBF

One thing is certain: this phone that leaves us more will really become our portfolio. This will not yet for 2015, but 80% of smartphone owners believe their mobile will be completely replaced their portfolio in 2020.

What is less known is that it could upset the banking world by the corporate control such as Apple, Google and Amazon on mobile wallets. All present themselves as ‘partners’ banks by providing a portfolio of smartphone measures. But in practice, this could especially be a takeover of Apple, Google and the other on banking ecosystem. There will probably first in a foreign confrontation (including China.), But European banks must take it to the eye. Their enemies are the world’s leading IT brands.

This artificial intelligence that could one day rot our lives

In an interview with the BBC, famous British physicist Stephen Hawking said that “ the development of a completely artificial intelligence could mean the end of mankind. ” For this, it uses a simple calculation. According to him, genetic engineering allow us to increase the complexity of our DNA in 18 years. But Moore’s Law reminds us that computers double their speed and memory capacity every 18 months. The deduced scientist risk of developing computer intelligence that would allow them to take control of humans. According to him, this planetary disaster (for us) is likely to occur in 1000 to 10 000 years. But, we will be well beyond 2020.

Robots are popular

For the first time, consumers seem willing to live in overcrowded robots. 64% of consumers believe that domestic robots will work in our homes in 2020. A scenario which is not ridiculous.

The European Commission has launched a program (SPARC) who wants to accelerate the development of the Civil robotics. 180 companies participating in this initiative that could create (at European level) 240 000 jobs. In 2020, the annual domestic robot market will be 60 billion euros. The Aibo dog will be completely overwhelmed.

Digital really smart cities

A few days ago a smartphone manufacturer installed near a bus stop in Brussels a public heater. To operate one minute, it was enough to send a tweet with ashtag #tweetforheat. This may seem childish, but within 5 years, cities will become real ‘smart cities’ interconnected with traffic lights and street lights that adapt to traffic.

In Belgium, the study Energyville (which was attended KUL) shows that the blackout could be avoided through a park appliances can automatically turn off if risk shedding. And this will be possible in less than 5 years. Simply (so to speak) the devices are interconnected by SIM cards. Mobistar, which has long been active in the Internet of Things said to have logged more than one million machines or objects (vending machines, vehicles), half of Belgium.

The agency Flemish roads and traffic uses the SIM cards in its signs along highways and in the signs ‘Area 30′ around schools. Same for the Walloon water company that uses SIM cards to monitor the water levels and prevent flooding. This is also the case for Taxi companies. This allows you to order a vehicle via a smartphone without disturbing the driver. And we dare not mention the uber apps.

Nespresso coffee machines installed in a professional environment also have a SIM card that calls the supplier when maintenance or repair s ‘needed.

All this is written in the stars, as 46% of smartphone owners say their children are already waiting that all objects are connected when they are older.

The annual report of Ericsson ConsumerLab ourselves for 2020 predicted the widespread sharing of the spirit. Nothing less than the development of a portable device “to communicate with others by thought.”. For those who believe, of course.

New technologies: the use of smartphones and tablets … – Life publique.fr

The Research Centre for the study and observation of living conditions (Credoc) published the results of its annual survey on the dissemination of information technologies and communication in French company in December 2014.

2014 was marked by strong dissemination of touch pads (29% of individuals equipped, +12 points in 2014 after +9 points in 2013) and smartphones (46% of equipment, +7 points in 2014 after +10 points in 2013). Uses related to the smartphone internet also increased: Internet browsing (43% of the entire population, +6 points), email checking (36%, +6 points), downloading apps (36 %, +7 points). In addition, more than one in four French people (28%) uses geolocation on his smartphone to find a restaurant, a bar, a museum or a shop.

In contrast, rate of television equipment (97% of the French), fixed telephone (90%), mobile phone (89%), computer (82%) or home internet offline smartphone (82%) have very weakly evolve over the past year (between -1 and +1). The proportion of Internet users (connected at home or work or smartphone, etc.) was also little changed (83%, +1 point), as well as some uses: social networks (48%, +3 points), listening and downloading music (47%, -2 points), job search (24%, -1 point), administrative and fiscal procedures (51%, as in 2013), purchase by internet (54%, -1 point) .

As for television programs, the television remains the preferred equipment to watch the programs live or replay. For video on demand or streaming, the computer is little more demand than television. In total, 54% of French only use the television, 22% are divided between TV and computer. The use of more sophisticated equipment (mobile phone touch pad) is less frequent

Christmas 2014: new technologies dusting of the toys … – MaCommune.info

Traditional toys “2.0″ were on the rise. While Thomas Le Paul, head of Smoby Toys, welcomes the need for children to continue to play with “physical games,” the old toys “modernized are indeed part of the” hits “this Christmas 2014: a flying fairy with sensors, interactive plush are among the best sellers this year. In mid-December, Furby Boom Flying Fairy rank as the two best sellers in La Grande Recre and JouéClub indicate the two main distribution channels in France toys toys they have in common.. combine the world of traditional toy and the new technologies

Furby Boom is in fact, an interactive plush mix between a rodent and an owl that is reminiscent of the kind Mogwai film “Gremlins” . He had his heyday in the late 90s, before returning to the front of the stage in a modernized version, for interacting with the animal via a smartphone app and tablet.

The Flying Fairy , already out of stock at several dealers, resurrects the princess figurine of old, via motion sensors that allow the child to fly with a simple hand movement.

“Christmas Toys have always been a mixture of traditional games that are found consistently year after year”

“The Christmas toys have always been a mixture of traditional games that are found consistently year after year, and new developments and innovations. But the last two years, there is a growing marriage of these two trends “, notes Franck Mathais, sales manager at the Great Récré.

And this year, if the traditional Playmobil or Operation are still in their original version from best sellers for Christmas are mostly connected games and toys that monopolize the top spots. “The classic toy are somehow sublimated by new technologies, who provide more realism and allow better interaction with the child” says Mathais.

The arrival of increasingly massive toys associated with smartphones or tablets, such as Furby Boom or doll Cayla who speaks “for real”, also to broaden the scope activity and extend the gaming experience to new media which are particularly fond of the new generations, he said.

+ 20% for interactive toys

Drones Version 2.0 of good old C helicopter of yesteryear, is also selling very well, says one in JouéClub.

According to the NPD, interactive toys and jumped 20 % this year in sales in France and this trend is expected to continue for the end of year festivities. Licensed games have registered an increase of 8% since the beginning of the year, and account for almost a quarter of the sector’s turnover, says NDP.

New technologies: a goldmine for cybercriminals – JDN

The emergence of new technologies, more and more embedded in everyday life, is considered a blessing for many sectors, including health.

This evolution of society towards a fully connected world also opens up new opportunities for a community of hackers and other cyber criminals whose scope is of considerable magnitude over the technological discoveries.

live illegal streaming, new target
 choice pirates

A report IPSA (Internet Security Association of Professionals) was interested in a recent practice, yet already democratized in society: illegal live streaming. Entitled “ Illegal Streaming and Cyber ​​Security Risks: A dangerous status
“, it highlights the emergence of a parallel market live streaming exceeding all forecasts, it has already attracted millions of users around the world through its free , has also become the new favorite playground of all types cybercriminals.
Flight data hostage of personal records, Trojans, etc … The study of IPSA said that if the user while viewing an illegal live streaming video is completely passive, the computer remains active and many things can happen under his nose without his idea. If it is not so surprising to see this phenomenon emerge, the importance that took the live streaming in the vast world of cybercrime shows its rapidly changing.
Technology is re ally developed than in recent years, and already hackers web stormed the area. At the point of becoming the main players now able to create their own illegal live streaming sites free only to catch their web surfers who do not suspect anything. True champion class of evolution, cybercriminals adapt very quickly to new technology developments, and even sometimes ahead. The acclaimed connected society today has advantages – for energy, health, etc. – But it is also a veritable Pandora’s box, expanding the scope of potential hackers.


payphones pacemakers,
 the infinite power of cybercriminals

If the
 amount of virus and Trojan horses today is about one million
 and constantly growing, cybercrime is a relatively new sector
 whose youth makes its development all the more impressive. The
 first steps of cybercrime in fact date from just 44, when
 certain John Draper discovered that it was possible to connect for free
 the AT & lines; T of public payphones by emitting a sound
 2600Hz. The man, who will later nicknamed Cap’n Crunch, he has rendered
 account with a whistle won in a package of the same name cereals. It will
 wait until 1986 to see the creation of the first computer virus, Brain, capable of infecting a computer and
 1987 to see Jerusalem, a virus
 able to infect, but also destroy a system. Worms
 Trojans, discoveries are linked to this period and each
 new year has its share of new forms of cybercrime.
From 1989 to 1991, the number of viruses in circ ulation is multiplied by 33, from about 30 to more than 1 000. While the Internet is beginning to democratize , cybercriminals are organized and begin to glimpse the infinite possibilities that are available to them.
In 1994, Vladimir Levin produced the first electronic flight magnitude. He steals $ 10 million to Citibank before being arrested and sentenced to three years in prison. It opens up a whole new kind of robbery without physical violence or chase. If Cybercrime has grown as the Internet was taking its brands in society, she was previously an activity reserved for a few individuals, little media coverage. The late 90s completely change the situation while hacking tools ready for use are broadcast in self-service on the Web. Cybercrime is then accessible to all, regardless of age or skill, and piracy is entering a new era. And as more and more everyday objects should be scanned, the power of hackers gaining momentum.
When Breakpoint Congress in 2012, B arnaby Jack, computer security expert at IO Active, demonstrates the least worrisome: located a few meters from a pacemaker, it shows that it is possible to send multiple electric shocks to the device from your computer.
discharges of 830 volts, can cause a heart attack the pacemaker wearer. A year earlier, Barnaby Jack had also proved it was possible to hack a remote insulin pump and inject a lethal dose to the patient. Should sacrificing these technologies? When it comes to medical equipment that saves lives every day, the question is obviously not arise, but there is a true reflection to lead on the development of key technologies far from our everyday life and black hats to benefit more than the user.


New technologies and educational innovation: the keys to … – The Student EducPros

The techno tools for students

At UdeM, new technologies are used to increase or change the nature of the interaction between teachers and learners. Training of “support teachers” are even in place to hone their skills in ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and help them to see more clearly in the panorama of tools available to them available.

Clickers and WiFi available to students

Many technologies are already used for several years in the UdeM classrooms, starting with “clickers”. These are small remote controls that allow teachers to ask questions in real time to a large number of students who meet by clicking on the zapper. “This promotes interaction and completely changes the pedagogical relationship,” says André Laflamme, advisor and specialist in educational technology at UdeM.

Again, this is the interactivity that is widely promoted. Students and teachers must be able to react in real time. With the use of clickers, quizzes are popular. “Some quiz possible to obtain real participation points. This is the case for the course statistics Friday, for example. The students are on the look and nobody puts his Facebook updates during the session .. . “says the teacher.

In the classroom, all teachers offices are also equipped with a control panel that allows throwing objects or documents in the amphitheater. “In the course of children’s literature, are widely used cameras Document: just move the image below for it to be projected to the whole room This allows students to see more clearly.” Said Mary, lecturer.


Free WiFi on campus // © UdeM

Wifi is free and integrated across campus. Not to mention the common network Eduroam, the result of an inter-university agreement. It provides a secure wireless access to lnternet, staff and students of higher education and research institutions when traveling. “Users of a member institution of eduroam services have secure Internet access from all other member institutions, and this using their usual authentication of their own educational institution,” said Andre Laflamme.

online course on “StudiUM” Moodle to enhance teaching

Developed in 2011, is a StudiUM Moodle, that is to say, a digital environment learning available to the academic community.

“StudiUM is a virtual place where the teacher will place documents, organize forums and quizzes and use a variety of methods to techno to enrich the teaching of its course. This is a very versatile free software developed by teachers for teachers, “says Jean-Pierre Blondin, vice-president in charge of the online training at UdeM, which ensures that everyone uses this platform .

“hybrid courses” also emerged. These are some classes entirely online. Teachers UdeM are more likely to move in this direction. “This allows students to enjoy a more active and dense learning,” the Deputy Rector, who believes that this is the way of the future.

But doing an online course, is first understand the nature of its target audience. UdeM currently 22 courses online graduate. And for some sessions, an expository content is preferable to interactive content. “With adults, we can go to discussion forums widely argued, with many interactions. Regarding the first cycles, they generally prefer a solution that brings them to learn by heart, it secures “says André Laflamme.

 // StudiUM © UdeM

StudiUM // © UdeM

“I, as a lecturer I use all the time StudiUM! You can submit articles or digitized voice memos to help our students. It is also possible to get them through online tests, “said Mary, who certifies that StudiUM does not replace the notes courses. “It just allows you to go further.”

Louise-Hélène Richard, Vice Dean in charge of digital strategy and development of online learning in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences UdeM has a clear idea on the issue. “Online courses must represent an educational opportunity to live in the student another experience that would not in class by providing a number of elements that enhance the learning environment.”

In order to develop online course quality, UdeM up elsewhere on experts, advisers technopedagogical, media designers. Nothing is left to chance

The main aim of the first French-language university in North America. Develop a variety of content and interactivity advocate. “The teacher should continue to have a face, a life he must be present. Having online course, this does not mean that the student will become passive and read during that parade on the Internet. Far from it,” says the Vice-Dean, who believes that the energy of the teacher is distributed differently but that does not go away.

About 80% of UdeM students have at least one full course StudiUM, some subjects lend themselves more than others. And not necessarily those we imagine. Daniel Matton, professor of biological sciences at the University of Montreal, had the audacity to offer an online course in practical laboratory work. “TP was constructed in 12 steps. With two students were tested to see if it well. Our final goal was working was that students everywhere can make the same analysis without necessarily do the same manipulation, but they live it through video, “said Genevieve Habel, coordinator of online learning in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences of the UdeM, proud to make available a manipulation to a student who does not necessarily have the equipment to carry his study. “By sharing the numerical results, a student in Benin or elsewhere achieves the same intellectual work that a student at UdeM.”

The portfolio: an academic Facebook

Another innovation on at UdeM: portfolio. It is currently in “pilot”, 1,200 students spread between nursing, education, science and veterinary medicine are in the process of appropriating the platform. “Unlike StudiUM on the portfolio, it is the student who is the architect of his space and not the teacher,” announces André Laflamme. Specifically, the portfolio is a learning space where students will be able to list all of his skills throughout his university studies. The ultimate goal is that it can provide a tangible record of his expertise after its formation. Students are free to share their data and make its portfolio available to people he chooses. It is a kind of academic Facebook.

“With logbooks provided by the tool portfolio, we try to move towards an approach based repository of skills. With portfolio, it is for example see how a student supports a particular patient and why he decided to act that way in that time, etc., “says Andre Laflamme, who believes that this should allow students to become practitioners more reflexive.

Ultimately, the idea is also to be able to allow a young graduate to go to an employer by submitting a portfolio to demonstrate that it has a particular competence. “We are close to opportunity: we build an academic network on which data sharing and where we open discussions,” joked Andre Laflamme

Flip teaching.

The class also reversed followers. Also called “flipped learning” or “flipped classroom”, this learning method is to work with the students in their theory. Once underway, they “do their homework” with prof. This completely reverses the traditional conception of education. The innovative concept was launched by Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams and taken up by Salman Khan (founder of the Khan Academy).

Reversed Class

Flip teaching // © UdeM

At UdeM, this method is also practiced. “Students come to class and already know what they will do and what discussions will be launched on site. We are far from one-way transmission of knowledge, and that is our goal,” certifies Andre Laflamme.

Optimize the training of future teachers

If the place reserved for new technologies gradually transforms the relationship between students and teachers, this echoes the company conducted by UdeM in the training of future teachers. Instructional department of the Faculty of UdeM education, the study of the interaction between a teacher and a learner discipline is part of everyday life. The emerging educational devices therefore on the rise and nothing is left to chance to optimize the training of future teachers.

Last science laboratories and provision curriculum in 4 years

UdeM, teaching laboratories of Sciences (worth about a million dollars) are available to students to help them learn to teach science in actual and optimal conditions. “This is the same equipment we find in a good primary or secondary school. Few universities in Quebec have this kind of laboratories should take advantage,” joked Marcel Thouin, professor of science teaching owner the Faculty of Education at the University of Montreal

The will to train the next generation is very important at UdeM. In this context, the first cycle, several very sharp 4-year programs that combine theory and practice have been established. This quality vocational training offers nearly 700 hours of training in schools become a teacher in Quebec, this is strictly learns. “This is a very solid initial training during which students are well equipped. The system has existed for 50 years, it has been proven,” said Isabelle Montesinos-Gelet, professor in educational Department of the Faculty of Sciences of the Education of the University of Montreal, who regrets that the French system is a little groping in the field.

Encourage research and grants available

At UdeM, the encouragement of research is a priority, and the university is in the means. In North America, some teachers receive between $ 300,000 and $ 1 million in grants to carry out their research. “This allows us to pay salaries or provide scholarships to students. Here, research funding is a habit,” said Marcel Thouin, aware that some teachers are France career without any subsidies.

Each year, granting agencies offer grant programs to fund research. “Here the financing of research works on many competitions. The process of allocation of research funds is very transparent, it’s a big difference with France where volunteering is often king”, announces the didactic teacher, before adding that it is not uncommon for Quebec students finance their education by participating in research projects. “They are financed by training. It is extremely helpful for researchers and students.” Studying in Canada is also able to take advantage of the self-made man spirit peculiar to America.

The training of students in research is facilitated. “It really is important to us heart to put them in networks, to encourage them to write articles and publish” says Isabelle Montesino. Marcel Thouin agrees. For him, it is important that teachers are fading a little behind their protégés. “Sometimes at the end of their thesis, students ask me to be mentioned as the first author. I accept their proposal by reminding them that they are the first authors,” insisted the professor, who’s mission to students in value. “Me, my career is done!”

The influence of new technologies on copyright – French Agency for Video Game

The digital revolution has transformed our ways of accessing protected works. Online services, streaming, technology torrent and other digital means offering content pose many challenges to the current legislation on copyright. Indeed, it seems that regulators are still running after the latest technological developments when it comes to propose an appropriate regulatory structure. The European Audiovisual Observatory, part of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, has just published a new IRIS plus report:

The influence of new technologies on copyright.

Iris report more: The influence of new technologies on copyright The last overhaul of legislation of copyright in force dates back to 15 years. At the time, the InfoSoc Directive set rules regulating the public communication of protected content. The rules for the retransmission of content, determined by the SatCab directive, continue to apply and are unchanged since 1993. The Observatory will explore the current legislative situation and raises the question of the need for a major overhaul.

The feature article of this new publication was written by Lucia Guibault and João Pedro Quintais of the Institute for Information Law (IViR), based in Amsterdam. The article begins by focusing on the criteria developed by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) to determine if there has been “ public communication ” or not, in accordance with of the InfoSoc Directive. These criteria are also used to determine the identity of “ user “, the definition of “ public ” and the concept of “ new audience “to which the retransmission is sent.

Guibault Quintais and then examine the application of these criteria to new content delivery methods such as live streaming broadcast of television programs, hyper -links to websites and distinguish between standard links, and embedded links transclusion, for example. In this context, the article examines the various technical restrictions, the subsequent availability of the content, contractual restrictions, access to unauthorized content and unfair competition.

Given the antiquity Directive Sat-Cab, the feature article also examines the current legal framework regulating cable retransmission and its impact on the beneficiaries and the various collecting societies. The authors focus on the recent decisions in the Netherlands and Norway concerning the notion of “ direct injection ” (or the fact that a digital cable transmission is considered a ” primary communication “and not as a secondary communication and thus is not subject to royalty payments).

The Reports section of this new publication includes short articles on recent developments for private copying and liability for infringement online. Cases of liability are also presented.

The Zoom section was written by two legal analysts of the Observatory, and Francisco Cabrera Blázquez Sophie Valais. This chapter focuses on cross-border access to online content and presents the latest initiatives at European level: the dialog “ Licences for Europe ” between stakeholders and public consultation on the revision of the rules of the European Union copyright matters, launched in 2013. Cabrera and Valais conclude on the announcements made by the newly elected Commission concerning future programs.

The influence of new technologies on copyright – time for a redesign of our legislation in Europe is ripe

The patterns and new technologies – Finyear

mails, phone calls , internal meetings: according to the bosses, 1/4 are unproductive.

The major findings of the survey:

– 37% of employers cite a disadvantage to new technologies, primarily the extension of the work week

– For 73% of bosses, new technologies have at least one advantage in the organization of work:

. Good communication skills (40%)

. The time savings (38%)

– Entrepreneurs spend 5:30 every day to manage their various exchanges:

. 1:55 for emails

. 1:51 the phone

. 1:44 in internal meetings

– 1/4 of these exchanges are considered unproductive

– 62% of employers believe that pollutants mails are becoming more

New Technologies: the benefits of course, but it is far plebiscite …

If they are, at first glance, perceived as advantageous, new technologies are still for more than a third of bosses sources of disadvantage (s). They are thus 37% to mention at least one:

– First mentioned, the extension of the week (15% of respondents)

– Then, the complication of trade mainly due to the multiplicity of media (14%)

– time loss – too many processes and tools to manage (13%)

– Being asked seven days out of 7 (12%)

Importantly, the multiplicity of tools (phone, tablet, laptop), with consequent complication of trade, is a real problem for the bosses of the trade sector: they are 25% to point the as a disadvantage (against 14% for all bosses).

On the benefit side, easy to communicate with customers or colleagues (40% of respondents), the time savings (38%) and permanent access to his agenda and his mailbox (26 %) logically come first. 15% then mention mobility and 12% done can have a permanent control over their business.

Finally, note that more than a patron of 5 interviewed found no change in its organization of work following the arrival of new technologies …

5:30: This is the time spent by employers in the management of their trade

1:55 time patterns is devoted each day to manage their mail, knowing that for them mails almost 3 in 10 are considered pollutants. A growing trend for 62% of business leaders surveyed …

The time spent each day on the phone is almost the same, 1:51, and the same conclusion: almost 3 calls in 10 are considered harmful.

Side meetings (excluding appointments and external clients), it is also close to 2 hours (1:44), which are occupied in the agenda of the bosses. And according to them, 1 meeting of 5 would be totally useless and ineffective, and so did their wasting their time …

results into perspective across industry sectors and it is interesting to note that industry bosses spend more time in meetings (2:09), and less on the phone (1:35), while This is logically the opposite for the bosses of the world trade (1:28 and 2:13 meeting by phone).

In total, they have 1/4 of trade during a day are considered by employers as unproductive!

A finding which unfortunately tends to increase: the owners are and 21% find that there are more and more ineffective meetings, 35% receiving more and more calls to them waste time, not to mention the 62% who receive more emails pollutants ….
