P&F switches (off) the lights as Karoline angles for FCU job
November 22, 2014
Our glorious leader enters the office wearing shades, a trilby and a plus-size gabardine mac. It transpires she's hoping to be recruited by the new Food Crime Unit as a private investigator and has dressed for the part. Karoline (with a K) PI would be a turn up for the books because, up until now, KPIs have been an entirely alien concept. Investigations may be a bit of a struggle too. Presumably they require things like diligence, application and thinking, and less in the way of manicures, spa treatments and Krug ("The '98 please darling. The 2003 is a touch too bubbly").

"Low-quality Chinese LED products damage the consumer's perception of LED products"
November 21, 2014
They may compete on price points initially but ultimately the consumer will choose what is best for him, Arun Gupta, MD, NTL Electronics, informs R Srinivasan. Kindly comment on synergies between NTL Lemnis and Lemnis Lighting. We began working with Lemnis Lighting from the Netherlands a few years ago and realised that both NTL and Lemnis Lighting had a single minded approach in providing sustainable lighting solutions. NTL Lemnis has all the traits that are required to succeed in the LED market from being a pioneer in product design and development to being one of the largest manufacturers of lighting electronics in the world. The most critical part of an LED product is its electronic driver and we have already kept our focus on enhancing driver development capabilities, thus developing products even for areas with unfavourable power conditions. Today, NTL Lemnis is poised to make a strong impact. The mass production of LED lamps is also expected to substantially lower costs. The government of India's announcement to drastically lower the cost of LED lamps is a welcome step.
