Undeterred by the harsh winter of India's capital, its toxic air and surging coronavirus cases, Sukhbinder Singh is among tens of thousands of farmers camped out in protest on the city's outskirts, along with tractors, trailers, SUVs and food trucks. The farmers say they have enough flour, potatoes and other provisions to stay put for six months if Prime Minister Narendra Modi does not meet their demand: a repeal of new laws that he has described as the biggest farm reforms in the country in decades and trade analysts have hailed as a booster shot for the world food market. The sea of unmasked people at the heavily barricaded protest site on the main highway into northern Delhi is the biggest challenge Modi has faced from India's politically powerful farmers since he took office six years ago, and is a chink in his otherwise immense personal popularity.
France plans a mass Covid-19 vaccination campaign between April and June next year after an initial drive for the most vulnerable this winter, President Emmanuel Macron said Tuesday. Regulators said they would consider requests for emergency rollout of vaccines this month. Macron told a press briefing early 2021 will see an initial drive targeted to the most fragile and exposed groups followed by a second campaign for the rest of the population.The announcement corresponded to what the president indicated in a nationwide address on 25 November.Prime Minister Jean Castex told lawmakers that residents of care homes and some staff would have priority for vaccinations.Macron indicated an expected limited availability of vaccines by the end of the year and difficult storage conditions for first-generation vaccines meant mass vaccinations would have to wait.Emergency approval in DecemberUnited States firm Moderna said Monday it was filing for emergency authorisation of its vaccine in the US and Europe, boosting hopes the first shots could be ready for the end of this year.Another vaccine developed by Pfizer and BioNTech has also been submitted for approval in Europe and North America in recent days. Both vaccines claim around 95 percent effectiveness.Regulators in the US and in Europe said they would decide this month or early next month whether to grant emergency approval. The European Medicines Agency said Tuesday it planned to decide on the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine on 29 December and on the Moderna vaccine as early as 12 January.Vaccine scepticism in FranceMacron said priority for vaccines would be given to people over 75 and health workers, then to people over 50, then people exposed to high risks of infection in their jobs or precarious social conditions.Macron reiterated his promise that shots would not be mandatory, saying France would adopt “a strategy of persuasion and transparency”.France is one of the most vaccine-sceptical nations, with a weekend poll in the Journal du Dimanche newspaper showing only 41 percent of French people planned to get vaccinated.(with newswires)
France is hosting an international video conference on humanitarian aid for Lebanon Wednesday, amid political deadlock in Beirut that has blocked billions of dollars in assistance for the cash-strapped country hit by multiple crises. The meeting, organized by France and the United Nations, is the second since the disastrous Aug. 4 explosion that destroyed Beirut's port and wrecked large parts of the capital.

- One of the major factor driving the quantum sensors market is the increasing government investment in quantum research to gain economic and military advantage. For instance, in September 2018, the United States published its National Strategic Overview for Quantum Information Science, which defined quantum sensing as ‘leveraging quantum mechanics to enhance the fundamental accuracy of measurements and enabling new regimes or modalities for sensors and measurement.New York, Dec. 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Quantum Sensors Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2020 - 2025)" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p05993763/?utm_source=GNW ’ Such new capabilities would afford clear military advantages and would have a positive influence on the market globally.- One of the typical applications of quantum sensors includes Photosynthetic Photon Flux (PPF) measurement over plant canopies in outdoor environments or greenhouses and growth chambers. Light is an essential element of photosynthesis, and it impacts numerous factors, including plant form and structure, and reproduction. Therefore, the PAR meter is a quantum sensor is widely used for measuring active photosynthetic radiation and thus driving the market.- For instance, in November 2018, Aranet launched its PAR Sensor with Apogee quantum meter. These sensors provide photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) from all light sources which are necessary to grow plants and thus, have ample scope in the horticulture.- However, lack of awareness, coupled with the high cost of research and development, is restraining the market growth during the forecast period.Key Market TrendsIncreasing Research Activities is Expected to Drive the Market- Increasing research and developmental activities related to quantum technology is expected to have ample opportunities in a different field such as military, construction industry, etc. Features such as high credibility and accuracy are making this technology accessible across various sectors.- Moving ahead, quantum technology is expected to have significant implications for multiple aspects of future military operations. And, China is focused to utilize this technology for its military applications and aimed to become a leader in quantum information science.- For instance, in September 2016, Chinese scientists announced their creation of a single-photon quantum radar, which takes advantage of entanglement between photon pairs, those were capable of detecting targets up to 100 kilometers away with high accuracy. This test provides an initial overview of the scope of quantum technology in military applications which in return would drive the quantum sensor market.- Another significant research which is progressing in this field is in the area of communications. For example, in June 2018, Cambridge University researchers used quantum states of photons to exchange secret keys to encrypted messages via a conventional optical fiber and quantum sensors plays a vital role during such communications. This technique is called Quantum Key Distribution (QKD), and it is believed to be an unhackable exchange of secret information.- Moreover, Luxembourg-based SES also realized the potential of this technology and announced in June 2018 that they would be developing a commercial satellite-based on QKD service by 2020. Quantum sensing could be used in those technologies with direct space communication applications. The sensors are able to measure atomic-scale shifts in the frequency due to surrounding magnetic fields, which could contain information about the environment and thus helping in space communication.- Therefore all the above research and development appeared to constitute a notable advance in the technology and hence, it is expected to have a tremendous opportunity during the forecast period.Europe is Expected to Dominate the Market- Europe is expected to dominate the market because Europe is one of those regions which started investing in the market early and have also made some strategic plans for the coming future.- For instance, in 2015, the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme invested EURO 400 million to establish four research hubs for developing different quantum-based technologies such as Quantum Sensors and Metrology which is led by the University of Birmingham.- Additionally, The UK National Quantum Technologies Programme is determined to bring novel types of quantum clocks and quantum gravity sensors to the market in the early 2020s.- Moreover, Europe is the home for the companies who are the major players in this market and thus, most of the partnership and new product launch initially happen in the region.- For instances, in July 2019, Teledyne e2v announced that the company’s own project Cold Atom Gravity Explorer (CAGE), would be funded by the UK Space Agency’s Centre for Earth Observation Instrumentation (CEOI). This project would aim to develop a mission for a quantum gravity sensor for Earth observation (EO) from space. Space gravity measurements are critical to many EO applications, including understanding climate change, detecting underground water resources and oil and gas prospecting.- Additionally, Glasgow University researchers are working with Italian volcanologists to find the scope of the quantum sensor in the monitoring volcanoes. They are experimenting on Sicily’s Mount Etna ( one of the most active volcanoes) using gravimeters to get the warning of volcanic activity beforehand.- Therefore, due to the above-mentioned reasons, Europe is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period.Competitive LandscapeThe quantum sensors market is at its initial stage, and thus, the competition among the players are moderately low. This market offers enormous opportunity, and because of this, many players are entering the market. Product launch and partnership are the major strategies followed by the vendors to gain a competitive advantage. Few recent developments are:- March 2019 - Researchers at the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) have developed new quantum sensors that have advantageous applications in the monitoring of cancer treatments to remote sensing capabilities.- November 2018 - The Gravity Pioneer project, has been awarded EURO 6 million in research funding from UK Research and Innovation. The Gravity Pioneer project led by environmental and engineering services company RSK and consist of 12 project partners from organizations currently engaged in quantum technologies in the UK such as Teledyne e2v, Fraunhofer UK, Altran, Geomatrix Earth Science, and Magnetic Shields, etc. The project aimed to build quantum cold-atom sensors that would detect and monitor objects beneath the ground, thereby reducing the need for investigative drilling or digging.Reasons to Purchase this report:- The market estimate (ME) sheet in Excel format- 3 months of analyst supportRead the full report: https://www.reportlinker.com/p05993763/?utm_source=GNWAbout ReportlinkerReportLinker is an award-winning market research solution.

Chinese industrial activity has snapped back to pre-coronavirus growth levels, with factory surveys hitting multi-year highs in November, but the headline expansion masks struggles for smaller firms and looming pressures for exporters. Readings from the official and Caixin's Purchasing Managers Indexes hit three- and 10-year highs respectively last month, a reflection of the industrial sector's strong overall recovery. Equipment, electronics and auto manufacturing have performed particularly well, helped by state subsidies targeting consumption of cars and white goods.
