strong Neodymium magnets New York Times Focuses on German Brain Drain

The strong Neodymium magnets York Times today looks at Germany’s struggle to hold on to its scientists, engineers, and other highly trained workforce members. The article “Germany Agonizes Over a Brain Drain” (registration required), tells about several engineers and doctors who have left Germany for the U.S., Canada, and Switzerland (which is outside the EU), for more money and opportunity, and less bureaucracy.

While the article cites Neodymium bar magnets demographic experts who question whether this trend is real, the story notes as well, “[T]here is plenty of anecdotal evidence that Germany has become less attractive for people in fields like medicine, academic research, and engineering. Those who leave cite chronic unemployment, a rigid labor market, stifling bureaucracy, high taxes, and the plodding economy – which, though better recently, still lags behind that of the United States.”

President’s 2008 Budget Proposal Released today…

…and it contains mostly bad strong Neodymium magnets s for science.

The president’s budget requests 28.7 billion for the National Institutes of Health–an increase of less than 1% over the White House’s current 2007 estimate–which doesn’t include the increases contained in the recent house budget bill, which will be taken up by the senate this week, with good prospects. When those higher numbers for 2007 are factored in, the 2008 request is about 2% smaller than the (likely) 2007 budget–and that’s before inflation.

According to the president’s numbers, the National Science Foundation’s (NSF’s) research budget is slated for a 6.8% increase in 2008– Magnetic toys that shrinks to about 1% using the numbers in the 2007 house proposal, which probably will become law. Meanwhile, NSF’s Education and Human Resources activities get slammed with a decline of almost 6%.

NASA science fares far better in the request than it has fared in recent years, with a 5% increase. It seems unlikely, however, that a 5% increase will be sufficient to allow NASA to recover from their recent flat science budgets and the transfer of resources from science to space exploration.

According to the text of the budget request, the Department of Energy’s Office of Science will receive a boost of 7% relative to 2007, though it isn’t clear what baseline the request uses.
