"Finished t five because he gained thirteen. Point nine shots on the green almost fourteen shots one of the greatest putting weeks. I can never honestly ever causing negative and everything but putting t five like i just does not happen. That's awesome. Maybe boss of the moss situation could be aaron. Wise has got some more Putting stuff going on. I i didn't i didn't accumulate at this time. But he missed a lot of putts today on lost. Almost five strokes on the green. Today is very much a a bad thing. He's got going on there You guys wanna do some ryder cup. Thought you'd never ask. I think it's time This segment is brought to you by friends of bmw. Who of course partners the ryder cup partners of ours. We're going to be having many many ryder cup. Conversations throughout the year and our friends at bmw. Ones bring it to you. This is how they wanna use their advertising space by giving us talk about the ryder cup. Which i think is pretty awesome. Somebody would have done anyway. So jokes. On new bmw. I don't have the updated standings with harrison. got him. no no. They're not sorry. I got a little ahead of myself. I thought so too but it looks locked. Sally is you lock. That's the goal for the ryder show. No i'm sorry. I think these are updated because they have him up three spots. I saw i see that too. But i had him at thirteenth before. I looked at it earlier today and he was he was thirteenth. So it's not updated just yet. I think he'll move up See one point three today. So he'll probably move up to around ninth in the standings ahead of female with kind of what i had on the start from. The beginning of the week is dj. Who's not here tonight. Very much throughout their like. Come get your boy. Like i don't think he should be on the ryder cup team. I like well listen. I'll listen to that. He's not very golf right now. And dj got upset. Because i didn't fight back. So i know now i know. It's all an act. He's just he's just throwing that out there. Just to give me all riled up but you're disappointed in fightback instead of is he. A lock is harris on on your team. Right now i think is a a more fun question. The the recency bias is lock. Is i think the new jersey on your team right now. Though miller you taking them to wisconsin with you look at this list. Then he got he went to the wilderness. There for awhile after one in hawaii. You know like right now. The ryder cup was next week. I'm the captain. Yeah probably pick him by tatum. And they you know over guy like burger or like webs not shown a ton of form. I don't know. I think i'd take english if it was next week. When you say over a guy like burger you're talking about the do. The seventh and strokes gained putting strokes game total for the year daniel burger. Yeah i am off. You're telling me daniel burgers seventh. It's saying if you're telling me that the tournament is tomorrow or next week. You know i think that you are. I would argue that harrison. Had he's had a great last three weeks. i feel like he's been the connery. Obviously just one here like he's showing a ton of former. He's won twice this year. So it's not like a flash in the pan situation. I agree it's not it's not a flash in the patent situation I just think it's where he kind of. Let's nets out along. The lines of true strokes gained is right along with kevin stroman and that always always the perspective. I urged people to have when when. Somebody's coming off a great week of like that was a great week course. He's playing some really good golf overall. How does his profile fit where we're going to be doing in three months. That's question that as fans we of course to answer maybe burgers wrong guy but like in over female. I mean i'm looking at this list like it's it's tough. It's stack right so i'm thinking like female web. I mean i. I won't read on the team just for the you know for the drama. Wait are you typically goods. Are you taking fee now. Is that a. Is that an affirmative. From no i would say that i was probably take harris english over fee now or or i think takeout female keep burger on is what i'm basically. I'm walking back. My burger switch out. How's your burger. I'm hocking on my burger. He did all on the burger. I thought i thought interesting one. Maybe guys covered this a little bit. So i apologize but we talk about the guy seventeenth right now phil mickelson. Are you taking him to wisconsin. Now oh why it's a it's an exhibition for fan. It's an entertainment product. You have to take him so we're not trying to win it. Of course we're trying to win. It fills fills you would take to try to win it. Hell yeah okay as he has. He been a traditional traditionally great ryder cup player. Nobody nobody has been. And that's what you are. The king of like all new blood is a do not give me fifty one was actually that. I've been very consistent on that. All new blood plus ville is still doing some blood spinning of any kind. Who knows what his his comp would be on a strokes gain perspective. But he's he's he's thompson oh he's such a he's such a. He's such a unicorn that's exactly right so so good in the team room. Come on he can be in the team. It can be an assistant captain which is probably destined to be. Don't make him and ask captain he's he just want a major. But how do you do in the last major made the what is him having major in may have to do with anything. Well i to me. It means his best is still world class. And what what guarantee can you give me that his best. No i can't. Yeah but but i can. I don't think you can make a guarantee about anybody on this. Us team having their best show up but give me high floor guys. That's my thing is own. Don't high floor gets you beat. You know what thirteen and a half to whatever the math is. I know i don't i don't need high floor..

"She got she got to watch venus grow up and just got to do everything at every stop a little bit better because she had the benchmark set so i would say it feels a maybe a little similar. Here i am with these. I've you know. I don't know mm well at all but i. I've never gotten that vibe. I i've always picked up of like jessica almost being protective and in almost take on like a motherly role. A little bit with nelly. From what i've just seen from afar in perceived i i will say though i think nellie or excuse me jessica not having won a major. I think as long as she can get one of her own than it's like. Oh nellie like. I'm all the way you know not that. I'm trying to introduce any sibling. Rivalry we're venus. Venus venus won a handful of majors herself. And aiding i. Yeah for jessica. Right like yoga. You gotta go get one you know. Exactly don't get discouraged every opportunity to to do it yourself. You know sound like. She's nellie ex succeeding at jessica's expense right. It's actually beating her directly. Which in tennis would be a little bit. Even you know it's like venus and serena play against other. that's even more kind of black and white in this scenario. And that's what jessica said today to was like it's not like we're playing tennis for playing against each other. It's like we're planning. It's the golf course. And she even said or like. Today i was playing myself which i thought that was just. I thought that was really good perspective on that as well. So you mentioned madeleine. Sanction are young. Finished t fifteen had tough sunday She was flirting around there on the lead there for a long long time she was. She was loitering. She had some bad intentions at one point but she did great on the front nine and felt like both days especially saturday and then that i mean the back. Nikon stood up as a tough test. She on saturday she struggled. She hit in the water. Caccia brutal like speed on twelve ball on fifteen short right in the water. Just can't do that and double. But then she she came back and birdied sixteen birdied eighteen to finish strong so that was like that was awesome. But yet i think you know great experience. I mean top ten in a top talk twenty so i think what would she t fifteen fifteen. Yeah so that's that's awesome result in. Let's let's let's go the young hitter stable. We haven't even gotten to meg mclagan yet. Come on. Let's great rainy put in the newsletter this week his prediction for the back. Half at twenty twenty one was a young hitter is going to get a win and like clockwork four days later. What he no hitter in the winner's circle on the symmetric tour. Exactly that was the first now. We've had brennan matthews win for on the latin america tour right says our second one technically but yeah madeleine great weekend. Good experience near like you said You know going into the weekend. She was as in as good a position as she's ever been so You know fingers crossed. Hopefully she's trying. She's she's the type of golfer to where it's like. I feel like her game builds right and so hopefully this is a really good sign of of things that come over the next few weeks. I also want to shout out. Her her fit out there she had on saturday. She had white on white with red pink socks. I mean it was it was a powerful look might fiancee carson using man. That's the swaggie maggie outfits. She's she's rocket and she was playing. She was playing with a wearing like red shorts on red hat with black like just. The juxtaposition was great putting madeline in very good light. Last thing i had really on the on the broadscale was just the tv windows. Were a bit tough going. On as you mentioned going off in threesomes then in the one to four Window on saturday so they could get to olympic trials. We've talked about this on repeat and malta weeks to it being a weird. Nbc year and all that stuff. Things don't seem great nbc for all fans you know. It's all is a lot of things working against this here. I made for really tough. Viewing saturday. I thought sunday was much better window. It happened ending right. As we thought the pga tour event was ending but of course it went on for two more hours but yeah in. They were on from eleven to three during the week. And then you had to pay for peacock premium to watch a women's major. That just doesn't scream like the best way to grow this game yet. I don't know where to place that blame really if it's if it's kpmg for not buying hours from the networks. It's hard to go to that tournament and be like man. Kpmg's really got up the sponsorship games. They set the whole event up like it was. You know a men's major by just from kind of an infrastructure standpoint. It felt like they rolled out all the stops for a fraction of the people. That are gonna be there so it you're with their. It's hard to blame the sponsor on that one. It's all about the olympics. This year for nbc right. I mean they're just so they're so stressed out about olympics and just get postponed a year. It's gotta be just a fire drill over there right now. One it's it's also you know if if kpmg this money's going towards its four and a half million dollar purse which is one of the biggest ones if not the biggest in women's golf if if that's where the money's going instead of buy more tv hours like i get it. I think it's almost more on. I don't know i'd be talking on my ass. I don't know where where we'll let. Yeah and i'm with you in that. I don't know who to be angry with. I guess So i just like to be angry with everybody is gonna scream at the sky but i think what what i just found really hard was like peacock premium.

"And just i did a lot of thinking while driving to and from atlanta this week two of just like what's gonna ha. What is what the future of the lpga tour looks like right. And how how it's gonna change and it it's hard because it takes like the whatever. The investment isn't shot link for the pga tour has paid dividends in so many different ways right yet. It's not something. That's a realistic expense. From what i gather for the lpga torso. How do you bridge that gap. How do you data to gamblers. How do you feed data to media people to broadcasters into players and it seems like a good start that they've got with kpmg onboard for for how this is going to work but it seems also pretty manual and And i don't know you know how immediate this impacts going to be. I think and they're not pitching it as being immediate. There is more of a longterm play. But i'm curious what you think. Well it's a start. Yeah you know like we start somewhere. Having having the caddy's log the stats. I mean i feel like it's kind of like my my goal this year. Track my own stats. You gotta start somewhere with something easy. And then maybe innovate from there. I don't know it's a lot for the caddies for very little amount of money. Do those guys. I wonder it's like abdu in contention like maybe they're gonna start kind of fudging. The numbers a little bit like a this. So how accurate can be. I mean we really wanna get randy. His how many feet of putz made stat like we got. We got gotta keep it accurate. So you gotta maybe reward the caddy's a little bit more If you're going to kind of lay all the stat on them in the beginning. Yeah i i agree you know. Don't don't let perfect get in the way of better or however that expression goes right. Got to start somewhere. It's so needed just talking to cairns couples Does a one of those people that does a wonderful job on the broadcast You know this has been her say like it would add so much value to broadcast. It adds so much to everybody right. You said broadcasters fans would add much value to the players themselves. i'm sure a lot of players somehow track their own stats. And maybe even have a a stroke gained method to to utilize but but just having that available for the players themselves. would would do a whole lot so encouraging news. I think kudos kpmg. You know. I gotta think there's another company or to right like i. Can i pick on deloitte a another big four accounting firm like that. Vr app during the us open. How much money do they put into that like. Like there have to be some resources to direct it to like something that would be so impactful man would seem like a win win for everybody So hopefully we can get there or maybe like. They looked like they did a range finder deal. Maybe there's something there where you could get those linked up or i know like you know precision pro like our range find comey. They're working on a whole eappen stat tracking thing like to make it less about the caddy putting on paper like that that to me yet. That's a start but that doesn't feel like the answer. Like i don't think that's gonna get you what you need but if range finders are legal now you you've got a tool out there you could use. Maybe so hopefully. They're thinking that way. I wanna bridge this into into you know a couple different aspects here and the hypocrisy of doing an ad as we bridget into the talking about is not lost on me here so But before i say that but jolly saw before. I just want to let the folks know. The rest of the podcast will be available on the no laying up No only s members only to only only members knowing dot com for such join. I was trying to think more information there. I was trying to think of an animal similar to the peacock. And i totally blanked so But go ahead with the ad. Do peacocks have nests. Because that's actually works pretty good for. Yeah we'll be ads. Even if you have a premium version of the draft picks sportsbook not only my favorite sports. Put also america's top rated sportsbook. One did you guys hear that. This might become legal in florida here very soon. So i'm looking forward to that but i love using. It's easy to navigate has plenty of instructions for new betters nearly limitless ways to get in on the action Everyone i know using the drafting sportsbook and they also have a great offer. Going the drafting sports because court side of the chance to turn one dollar into one hundred dollars in credits. All you is pick any basketball team. It's still in contention. Bet one dollars.

10,000 stores expected to close this year due to COVID-19
"Major retailers, the report says, are expected to close 10,000 stores this year that is up 14% from the year just ended. But at the same time more than 3300 new stores open last year, and course I predicts another 4000 will open this year. Marketplaces Kimberly Adams has that one. The types of stores that shut down in the pandemic include lots of footwear, clothing and accessory shops. According to course, I research the types of retail that opened discount outlets like Dollar stores. Industries that cater to certain pandemic needs also did all right. I believe the housewares category as all overall in the country has seen tremendous growth from New York to the West Coast. Natasha aim it runs the kitchen supply store Whisk in New York. Her business did better than she expected in 2020. Now as restrictions start to lift. I'm hopeful that people will will keep up their love for cooking and want to spend their money at a store like cars, businesses, small and large, are trying to game out which pandemic changes will be permanent. Constance Hunter, chief economist at KPMG says, at least for those who are on the upside of the case shaped recovery, and I do think this pent up savings is going to lead to higher consumption that we would normally expect.

"Of course it does the point is that the technology has made it too easy to hit it very long straight, and again, we can unpack that for three more hours if we really wanted to but. That's that's where I think things need to be restored. Yeah I. Feel like the argument of it's too easy to hit long straight is one that was probably made in one, thousand, nine, hundred, five, and nine, hundred, seventy, two and go back with different iterations of technology. But to your point I, feel like this, it just feels different and maybe this is going to be the start of a tipping point that really does enact some fundamental change but you know maybe in a world without Bryson it still would have been you sort of seen these numbers start to creep up maybe you need someone. Shattering the ceiling like he is in real time to get things to change because otherwise we might have been just drifting along. You know pretending that the problem was not as significant as become at the same time when you're talking about ninety nine point nine, eight percent of of the golfers in the world don't have it as a problem it's just for.

Well, you know I'm an Avid Golfer I got to play the same equipment as the pros play. One is not the same to like us a range finder pros don't use range finders like you don't follow the letter of the law to the T to as the same way that you know pros do it's just this I. Don't know the people will bend over backwards to come up with these crazy reason like, oh, we got plant more trees we gotta grow rough up gotTa make fairways even narrower. We got lower the tee boxes we gotta do all like a all the things that people will suggest that should happen before just saying like, Hey, let's fix the equipment like the the equipment companies are the ones that are benefiting. I guess that people are bending over backwards to protect and I just don't don't don't understand it. Yeah, I, think to your point that yes the pros playing with prototypes and very different clubs than we're used to. But how clubs are marketed to amateurs is you're gonNA use the club that this is the club the price won the US Open with put it in your bag for you know x ninety. Nine. And so I think that that has been become such a focal point of of the equipment industry in golf and I think that that is difficult to take away in that even if you do have a bifurcation situation of. The the pros are playing this ball that there are some some people that say, Hey I want to play with Dustin johnsons playing I WANNA play the game Roy. Does I WANNA stand on this T- where he did two weeks ago and try and hit those same shots and and then now we're getting really deepen the rabbit hole but you get into like elite amateur competition like the State Golf Associations in the Mid am and things like that like what what equipment do you use air versus? Men's club championship and things like that. Where is the the line in the sand going to be between? Hey, these are events where you use pro equipment and this is where you can. You know use the juice ball and things like that. So. Play too much devil's advocate but it. UNPACK it's complicated and I think it. Now it's become especially complicated with how long this has gone on I. Don't I don't have the easy answer like let's do this this and this, and I know the answer, the questions you just ask there and they're very valid questions and like if the reasons like you know what you grew up so much of this point that we can't undo it. Then maybe that's one of the best arguments for keeping things away it is more so than you know lowering tee boxes implanting two hundred foot trees or some of these things that people are talking about but. I didn't want to wait this long start talking about a women's major but. It wasn't the most exciting viewing today I wouldn't say but of the KPMG Women's PJ did you get to watch? Yeah I got to watch some it. It's certainly. Fun Course. It was a little bit jarring to go from watching Bryson play TC several to then seeing NB park feeling. She's swinging forty miles an hour at Iran mink and just just hitting every single fairway and doing what she does. Say. Kim. was unstoppable on Sunday and I think there's something special about watching player that just goes on a heater at these act rate time where you just sit there and you're like. There was no way to beat her today and that's what was the case. But I think certainly from a viewer perspective and just watching different golf shots being played a of different challenges off the into the Greens around the Greens that tick every single box from me this week. Yeah and it was You know not to bring it right back to the Disney discussion we just had but the contrast in terms of you know. I don't think the women's game reaps the benefits of the of all the equipment you know similar AMADOR's they're not getting the same compression that the top level tour proser getting as far as you know, the separation distance wise from the average player that they're just not getting those gains with the you know the swing speeds that they have on the tour of the game looks a lot more like I think golf should look like just in terms of the clubs that you have hideous Greens. Matt Wolf hit a driver, hit a wedge into a par-five today, and you saw like Brooke Henderson and say Kim and and Nordquist plan the five hundred yard par five ninth hole and none of them could get there into despite hitting Brooklyn a good drive. She couldn't get up there like the balance just seemed to be restored in and how you had to chart yourself around that golf course use. Loves making sure you weren't behind certain slopes, how the ball rolled out with the level that they spend it at. It was like it was amazing golf to watch in that in terms of that and what I think golf could and should look like and I'm just I'm so pump at a lot of these events are heading to a lot of these great sites. You know the Kpmg Women's PGA in particular..
Tech Workers Fear Their Jobs Will Be Automated in Wake of Coronavirus Concern
"He thought that workers and technology had the most job security and that automation was a risk solely to workers in retail and manufacturing. Think again these days, its workers in the technology sector that are ironically worried the most about being replaced by automation. Nearly 67% of workers at US tech companies are concerned about losing their jobs due to artificial intelligence, machine learning and robotic software. That's according to a new study by KPMG. That compares with just 44% of workers outside of the tech sector. Maybe because Czech workers have a clearer understanding of the big changes that are coming. And tech workers suddenly have other big concerns. 70% of them say they're worried about their jobs being cut as a result of the pandemic, and there's good reason for that Fear. U. S technology firms quietly cut 112,000 jobs last month That's a record These are unsettling times in our country and our labor market, and even tech industry workers are concerned about their future for your next job.

"Mean it's a super common thing. Right I talked to people at a KPMG I talk to people at other big accounting firms, all traditional businesses, and they say hey Christina game in my whole life. How do I get into the sports market? I mean for me. It's always hard for them. Because I say to them and I mean, we'll get into gaming receivables to cash later, but a lot of time I decided and look. These companies need someone with your expertise, but they don't have enough money to pay for someone with your expertise, so like what would be your if if someone from kpmg approach to the currently earning. Eighty to one hundred and thirty thousand dollars a year waking to co position and says hi. Burn I WANNA leave it on facebook. Like what would be your recommendation like? How could they get into the market? I? Mean I am more of. kind of like conservative investment personality so I, would say start small, you know you'll your legacy from a stark from from small perspective, and like let the company grow with the space I think there's a lot up growth to be gained route gaming, these sports and No one that's. Good enough to start heart and start from the top. Just you gotta you gotTa. You gotta pay. Dudes by you know understanding your community understanding your your base, and there are the ones who really help you kind of grow, and it takes sometimes time. It takes longer than people think I think there's a lot of. Misunderstanding on you know because of the boom of gaming and eastwards, General that anybody can come in and you know. Get Big really fast and I think that's the biggest misconception I. Think you just you know you start. Small and consistent you know slowly. You're going to grow verse. That's the same for any streamer any youtuber. Just you know it's consistent time put in a time over time. Put on on the business itself. Yeah. I agree I. Think it's a hard. It's a hard sell sometimes to be like. Hey, you know. Leave your corporate job high flying, and then guy and volunteers social media manager for a t three's team. That doesn't have a single financial sponsor. It's a bit of a hard pill to swallow a lot of time, but that's you know that's the suggestion and. If you if you're a true. Like for example if you're director and you have. All you skew saturated breach that seventy or mark of experience in your business you probably. Is Wise enough. In Organiz enough to manage your time to basically put two hours of your day into that visits that is probably equivalent of a ten hour of a new entry level person that's going to try to come up with new ideas so I think you know if the person is really passionate really wants to come in. Is it just a little bit about a time? And you know and maximize your. The into the business being open minded because it's a lot of different approach to the Gaming East sports business that you know that's rare different than the traditional, which sometimes core related, but also different. I think that's kind of what makes it the growth, even faster for someone. That's just brand new. Yeah Yeah that definitely makes sense and it's the same. It's the same way that anyone who comes to want to get to the industry. It's what I tell them you know. I started off as a player and a commentator and to start doing more start asking for more jobs. I was combining battlefield to them I said Hi. Be playing a lot of counterstrike souls can I go home and tight that too and I said well. If you want to do it, you can do it so I did that. And then they said you know. Marketing manages left. Who wants to do it? I said I'll do that as well as volunteer, but and I would to get that experience, and like you said on the ground like you really need a lot of that on the grand experience you know, get your hands dirty and really try it out and the like to to frame like a lot of conversation today. Before we started recording this, and before we went live on link Dan you and I were talking a lot about gaming versus a sports, and literally even in a meeting this morning. I was explaining exactly what this is, and I feel like I probably explain it at least three times a week, so for those people listening gaming, versus as bullets is like sport versa leisure activity, so if you'll just kicking a football with your friends down at the beach. That's not sport. That's just A. A leisure activity. That's having fun the same way that if you're just playing candy, crush my ball. Fine, your son, daughter or cousin is playing for not on the IPAD. You're just playing a little bit of data to solely Q.. That's not a sports. That's gaming. It becomes a sports when it's a structured competitive nature of play

Fishing for New Drugs
"The Glass Marine Genomics Institute is seeking to harness biotechnology to discover new therapeutics by studying the DNA of marine life. At the same time the institute hopes to breathe new life into a photo fishing village that houses it and create new opportunities there. We spoke to Andrew Bogner Science director at the Gloucester Marine genetics institute about marine biotechnology the ocean as a source of novel. Therapeutics and the Institute's efforts to transform the economy along Cape Ann Andrew. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me. We're GONNA talk about grouse Marine Genomics Institute. The potential the ocean represents a source of new Madison Institute operates. It seems Jaji is Michigan is as much economic is in his scientific. Perhaps you could begin with talking a little about the town of where your base and how the institute came about sure Mcgraw date will this court. In America Foundation nearly four hundred years ago and it's economy is principally shortened fishing industry So but declined temperature. Fishing Industry over the last several decades has really had a negative impact on the local economy and they call me if the region for GMT I really from discussions between micro scientists missing union leader as well as governor officials. Who really wanted to do something to catalyze new economic opportunities for Gloucester and for the KPMG area All at the same time remaining true to the rich maritime history of the region The ruling was different. Twenty-first-century technologies and specifically to novel technologies to see for new discoveries that impact either fisheries are human health GMT. I is not nonprofits Research and education institute not two thousand thirteen and what's the mandate for Jim? Gee I what does it seek to do? Beyond research along the lines of economic development as I see our mission is really to conduct World Class Marine research which extends regional autonomy and our strategy really has three components. The first is to establish a research institute powered by genomics to uncover new discoveries that impact tissues and human how the second part is to create a really vibrant science community in and around officer. And so this is actually encompasses a number of things Which is attracting scientists who trump to Gloucester for collaborative research and conferences occupancy? Translational research generates opportunities to form spin out companies as well as attracting other research and biotech entities to smoking in Gloucester order. Support is growing. Science community are expanding researches if you really need a train. Local workforce in the third part of our strategy is actually one of education. We're training Well if I were training the next generation of Asia There are white ship. Education program is called the blog Gloucester Biotechnology Ademi and it's a nine month vocational training programs. You train recent. High school graduates become entry. Level lab technicians. Prepare them for jobs in the life science biotech industry. There are a number of drugs on the market today that are derived from marine organisms. There's a growing pipeline as well. Junji is not alone. In looking to marine life is a potential source of new drugs. How significant opportunity does the ocean represent as a place to find novel therapeutic? Sent to what extent this truly been explored pot. Well the ocean is largest reservoir of biodiversity on the planet and yet we know really only a fraction of their so tremendous opportunity for new discoveries and the sea And certainly genomics allows us to explore this fire diversity in a very cost effective and to go away so those really opened up a new era. She's covering from the sea. So you mentioned that there have been some marine drives Therapeutics and today third nine. Fda approved marine derived drugs on the market With indications such as Cancer Infectious Disease and education And these have had They have very unique chemical structures mechanisms of action and they'd show tremendous promise in their therapeutic areas. There's been a problem of discovery. Discovering new therapeutic because of the limited supply of starting material traditional drug discovery was based on harvesting organisms. Extracting their chemical testing now for us because many of the compounds were present in really low quantities in these organisms biomass. He's tons of violence in order to extract enough of these compounds to do experiments into tough there So it was a very cheap to call very expensive Process but now it's you know it can take a small sample of any organism liquids. Gino an have a blueprint for all of the chemical and biological capabilities of that organism. Now working from the seven zero you can have a look for other teens and violence and pedic gene pathways but maybe coating molecules with these potential had so really again. I think is opinion happened. New Era just every therapeutic something. That wasn't possible before how is size organized. What what's the roadmap for what you're seeking to do so I started. He is having a platform to address questions related to oceans and human health and we basically have three main program areas. My medicine and biotechnology is one. Inconsistent function houses the second and Fisheries Agriculture so third. So I'm officially side. Were doing as you think you now. To better understand populations of commercial fishing south and creating the next generation of tools to better assess population structure and also the house of Aquatic Animals For the ecosystem function and how program or using genetic to explore the diversity and function of marine environment and developing news. You know tools to assess ecosystem south and function And Response to natural and man-made environment and on the biomedical side were exploring the oceans vast biodiversity a focus on marine microbes to identify novels. Dna. Who's an organism For applications for other applications in biotechnology on also creating the next generation of Genomic To dance marine animals as models for medical research and our focus is on long list. Us resistant animals.
2019: The year business went 'woke'
"Twenty. Nine hundred was the year when Saudi Arabia launched changed long-awaited share offering in state oil company. Aramco D- when Softbank lost its gloss when accounting giant tighten belts and when capitalism went woke. I'm I'm joined to discuss the corporate year with our companies editor. Tom Breath weight and Brooke. Masters are comment and Analysis Edison. Tom Can start with you. Can you tell L. is what happened with the Saudi Aramco IPO. Well it happened. Finally which is serve some progress because it took months and months of delay and eventually This massive oil company floated in Riyadh and now does have the two trillion dollar valuation that was so coveted by Prince. Mohammad bin Salman. Why did it take so long investor skepticism in short? I think one problem was that the Saudis would have liked to have listed this in New York which is the the biggest steepest capital market in the world but the main problem there was that they could have been sued for their alleged role in the nine eleven terrorist attack ax which Saudi Arabia has always denied it opens the window to litigation in the US which they desperately wanted to avoid so. That was one problem that the other problem was that most international investors did not think this oil company which is still fairly. Oh pay can still very much. Under the control of the Kingdom could justify the valuation valuation particularly at a time when oil prices have fallen. And when there is great concern about global companies in a world where carbon one is considered toxic change. They Saudis raise the money. Yeah well it got its public oil company to the local market in Riyadh. What it couldn't do was securer hefty amount of international investors so there was a lot of pressure on local Saudi investors? Some of whom were the same people. Who'll who were held against their will at a hotel the Ritz Carlton Reminders? What happened then? Back in two thousand seventeen. Several of Saudi Arabia's richest families were held old at the Ritz Carlton Hotel People like Prince. Alwaleed who is quite knows. International investor ended up with an enforced stay whilst their assets assets were probed by the state and ultimately some of those assets were confiscated by the state so these same people Saudi Arabia and knocked on their door and and said we'd really like you to buy into the Saudi Aramco. IPO and these people generally said yes. Yes we would very much like everyone else. We would like to buy the shares and so they did and it is floated and this little sliver of equity has been sold. And that is what justifies the two-trillion-dollar evaluation. Now it's not really like apple apple of a massive mega capps who's stock as freely traded. So if and when that ever happens we might get a more realistic assessment of what it's worth. Burke Saudis been a big investor in South Bank and the Vision Fund which. We've had corsage about this year. How Will Scaling Down with the IPO effect Saudi Arabia's ability ability to continue money into what I think we now call the troubled Japanese fund presumably? It might make it more difficult. I mean Saudis already having having to raise more money to diversify the economy and so presumably. They're not going to want to be quite to free with their cash. And of course Softbank is probably not the place that they I would like to put their money anymore. Anyway because Softbank itself by Maceo she son has taken some really big bets on companies that have not so far come good specifically specifically. I think we work would be the most obvious one. which is the shared office? Space Company tried to list and failed to at which point not only did it not sell equity but but it's lenders decided not to lend any money and Softbank had to go rescue it and its valuation has been cut significantly. I'm sure Tom knows exactly by how much he's about. Tell us I think I think from forty seven billion dollars. They tried various levels down but ultimately ends up with a sub ten billion dollar evaluation as you say failed to go public. Can they continue each trade. Yeah I mean as long as Softbank and others are willing to continue to pour cash into it because it is still heavily loss-making but the other thing they've done is scaled back their a growth strategy. So they are not spending as much money on new builds so they think they can get to somewhere near break even in the coming months. They've also filed a lot of people which helps so frank's image of takes quite a battering its credibility. How does that affect its ability to keep them investing well they have been trying to raise a second fund and it has not worked worked as well as one would hope? It's particularly problematic because as you may remember. Their first fund has an extremely unusual structure where it's not just people putting in cash. It's people putting in cash and then also they had to put in loans basically so they don't have as much cash as your classic Private Equity Fund. What have they actually have to pay interest on the money? They've got so I think if they don't have success relatively soon the way it's structured means that the lack of success will be magnified and make it that much harder for them. Son has apologized already. Instead he was to credible and he has also started putting a new governance requirements on the companies that the fund invests in food for them. I've always always been skeptical about some of the companies have invested in some of the valuations. They've invested at. They seem to have got quite late into the private tech game and got into in a massive way EH. One of the most ridiculous investments was wag this company that walks you dock for you which they've just finally pulled out of we. Work is the big characteristic Batson if that went well then or would be fine. But it hasn't so I mean Masan has this ability really proven alibaba to pick one winner that has generated a massive amounts of return. So if there's just one company within this portfolio then it could be judged a success but if you look at companies like Uber which I showed this year and his now full and a third in value if you look obviously we work and the marginal bets like y than as little really to say that this thing is going to be success for the big four. They've had quite the twelve months with so many scandals. What would you say? What did they end up this year? What's interesting is it hasn't been as bad? That is you think I mean. They have been criticized and find record fines record discipline for dreadful audits of companies that leader went bust but in an actual practical level. Their revenues are up and their dominance of the auditing business of the footsie. One hundred is up. They have taken taking a lot of terrible press. And they're probably. I'm guessing having a harder. Time recruiting best in the brightest. But I would not cry for them. The thing to remember is this time last year. The kingman kingman review was suggesting that they ought to be separating audit from other other businesses. Maybe broken up do all this stuff and then the CMA. The competition and Markets Authority authority in April said the same thing and they're going to move forward but nothing has actually happened so in fact life continues for them they still make a lot of money. KPMG I'M G. which is the one that has struggled more than the others has been involved in more of the scandals and also it has had prophets problems and so it has had to do meaningful cutbacks? Axum TRIMs They had famous where they stopped paying for people's phone calls and they took a lot of bad press. But I think it's worth remembering that. If you go back maybe a dozen years. You could've made exactly the same argument. Lots of concern about their dominance of the auditing market. Lots of concern. That audits weren't going well. This is remember post Enron and all that sort of thing and there were four them and there are four now so could they to relax a bit and feel that they've survived the structure phone calls over. This will come back. It's not clear. Their regulator has a new person. WHO's in charge of WHO is actually a serious guy and it is possible? He will try to do more at the moment. There's no legislation giving power to him to do more. It will really depend on how much Boris Johnson government cares about this stuff. I mean it was on the agenda of the previous government. Is it now. We don't
U.S. consumer confidence falls for the fourth month in a row
"There are some economic indicators that you you can really wrap your brain around right. The unemployment rate for instance or the number of new homes built in a given month. Both of those are tangible. Easily understood for the the most part sometimes though you get a report that while interesting and informative is also a bit squishy like the one we got today something something called the Consumer Confidence Index could give you the number but it's probably not gonNA mean anything to you one hundred twenty five point five. I mean I mean it's pretty strong actually and historically but it's also the fourth month straight that consumer confidence has gone down the question really though especially the important given how critical consumers are to this economy at this moment is what exactly consumer confidence is anyway. Marketplace's Sabrina ashore starts us off feelings. Consumer confidence is feelings about the economy. Act it can be better. We're due for some kind of recession of some sort. It's a little little flat right now. Mariam Rich Brian. Christopher on New Yorkers all sharing their views with marketplace there are a few different folks who do official monthly consumer confidence surveys.

All the answers are used to pop out a number. Voila consumer consumer confidence. And of course we care about all this because feelings can turn into dollars or lack of dollars. Richard Curtain is director of surveys for the University of Michigan Consumer Mr Sentiment Index another measure of consumer confidence when people become optimistic.

We're going to get more TV time, more TV time. And, you know, I mean I'm grateful to have that catava partner. So, yeah, we had some we had some really colts stories. Gosh, it's scary how well you've alad. I assume she was exaggerated. I know it is that was like verbatim. What she said the times I like my TV time. Yeah. So it was a great time to, to be paired with her. And you know, we'll see how this goes, you mentioned that, you know, you're trying, you are trending or perhaps you're trying to convince yourself that you trending. Just looking at your crew stats. It's amazing how many cuts. And so I'm just curious. It seems like that breakthrough. What do you think is that final missing ingredient for you? Or do you think it's just, you know, things break in the right way? I mean I mean there's a lot that goes into a turnament and you know, there's a there's luck that goes into it. There's your mindset that goes into that week, I think for me right now is really just to let it happen. I think I've been forcing especially on the putting green have been trying to force putts, in and really not not doing what I normally do. Just a lot of visualization a lot of feel and I've gone to a point where I'm now putting lefthand low just to get that feeling back, which is not the way I've normally put it in my career. But right now that's pretty much that's been working for me. I honestly I've been feeling the most the strongest ever felt I'm back to getting like. I'm hitting shorter irons and I'm getting my distance back in. So I would think that would give me much more confidence to be on the putting green for some reason. It's just not really like it's not piecing together right now. But I'm I'm super positive right now. Like my team has been awesome. And I mean, there's no reason why shouldn't be contending weekend and week out. So I'm pretty I'm pretty hyped up. I'm pretty excited to be playing golf thing. It'd be a different story. I was like, really grouchy and just a pain in being a brat out here. So I'm I'm still very optimistic and I'm definitely sure I'm gonna get another win. I didn't mean to imply that you're not playing. Not at all, you know, just looking at and you know, you had a top ten at this turnament last year, the women's PGA. And so is this one that you've, you know, I feel like this might be one. You've really targeted. Past couple KPMG women championships. I've, I've played really well. And. I like playing major championship golf courses. I think it really separates the fields and really relies on short game. And I feel like that's kind of like my might go to my specialty and keeping it in the fairways out of the rough so knock on wood, that I just didn't jinx myself, but I really liked playing in these types of conditions in really being outta vents where it's just topnotch from hospitals to how they treat the spectators and really how just they embrace the PGA. So I'm really excited about the week. The episode is going to come out after we've already played the tournament so to come out led to make your prediction now. How, how does this golf course suit you? If you say it's me really well, and you win. This is going to be. I only played the front nine so far. And I, I really, really like it again. You're going to back to feel on the putting green, you're going relying on short game. And avoiding the rough, it is pretty sticky. And, and so try to do my best to avoid major, major numbers, major mistakes. And also just keep like a really focused mindset and keeping my emotions a little level, I tend to get a little roller coaster issue. That's not really what I want. But we'll just see what happens take it shot for shot. I'm sure you not compare kind of what the, the women's PGA has been like compared to other L PJ courses..

"One files the corporate news of the day. The all stock transaction merger of equals, it's being called joining the giant defense contractor, Raytheon with the giant, aerospace company, United Technologies forming the more giant, if not, especially imaginatively named Raytheon technologies, one files that transaction under the heading done. Have you seen the defense and aerospace businesses lately? If the deal does make it pass regulators, the one hundred billion dollar result would be the number two company in that space behind Boeing. So marketplace's Kimberly Adams gets going with some market based realities from Washington Raytheon and United Technologies say the mergers important for them to keep their balance in shifting markets. Doug gates is head of aerospace and defense for KPMG. They're looking at it in this. Acquisition to a long term view that this combined company will be able to ride the ups and downs of the markets Raytheon has a big defense contracting business. United Technologies is big in commercial aviation. If commercials slowing down, they've got large military my and vice versa. Another reason behind the merger the idea that bigger is better risen McCormick is a fellow at the center for strategic and international studies. The merger would create a company that would bribe Boeing and Lockheed as largest defense contractor continuing trend of consolidation that's been ongoing since the nineteen ninety s that consolidation worries President Trump. He expressed concern this morning that too much consolidation in the defense industry may raise prices for the US military and by extension taxpayers. But Gerry McGinn executive director of the center for government contracting says this merger is unlikely to face a lot of pushback from federal. Regulators because there's not a tremendous amount of overlap between these two companies in terms of the markets. They operate it, but government regulators do have to approve the final deal among them the combined company's biggest customer, the department of defense in Washington, I'm Kimberly Adams for marketplace.

I've And if you find that the really hard to understand, it's too complicated. An unusually there's a reason why it's complicated. Someone's trying to hide something someone's trying to manipulate something because really the best ideas and some of the best people at there are talking about very similar. So that's a third part? And then I like what you said about inner voice sounded like, you had an inner voice that was telling you that, you know, hey, there's some risk here. And I think that what I would like the listener. In the audience to think about it set that inner voice will come out when you feel like something's not right? And it will usually come out for all of us. But that interviews voice is not that powerful. The tools that these people have used of greed and credibility confusion confusion gives you down. Like, maybe I'm not smart enough in all these guys are so smart, all of these things are trying to do is trying to override that inner voice that you have. So for the audience, I want you to take heed of your inner voice when it comes out. And you think wait a minute this, really, right? Is this makes sense grab that inner voice in don't let anybody override that in your voice with all of their talk and credibility efforts. So those are my takeaways is there anything that I missed or anything you'd like to add no our like your ad on in a wise. Yeah. I mean, that's in fact, what we can say is that I think that most worst investments start off feeling excited. But then there. That moment of question or doubt.

"kpmg" Discussed on FT Banking Weekly
"Weekly from the financial times with me, David Crowe. Joining me in the studio today on Hannah Murphy city, reporter and out in house. Crypto currency expert, Phillip Stafford editor of F T trading room. Nick Magor are retail banking. Correspondent Stephen Morris? Our European banking correspondent and from across the pond in New York Rowbotham, strong are US finance editor this week will be Cussing push by the big four auditors to get into crypto currency a derivatives deal in Europe. Brexit blues it obvious the search for European investment banking champion and the naughty banks in the US which have been punished by investors. So Hannah you've been writing about the big four auditors who are making a push to get into crypto currencies. What's it all about? So you've got KPMG PW C and E Y all hiring. A lot of blockchain crypto currency experts particularly to start offering auditing services to companies involved in the sector. So that's companies that either hold cryptocurrencies as part of that portfolio. So crypto hedge funds or traditional funds, but it's also cryptocurrency companies and startups such as cryptocurrency exchanges crypto mining firms, for example. So you've got e way saying that got more than one hundred fifty clients worldwide PW said they employed about four hundred experts in the space and KPMG say they've got several dozen funds. Hold cryptocurrencies as well as some exchanges globally. So why are they getting into it? Now. I mean, I thought the currency bubble had well, and truly burst. You'll right cryptocurrencies prices have slumped from their mid January peaks, and that's put a lot of pressure on the industry recently. It's largely to do with worries. Mainstream adoption hasn't taken places fast. As had been expected by some sectors viewed with skepticism by mainstream finance. There's been worries over fraud and manipulation. But the big four argue that even if the hype dies down the prices come down, the technology behind cryptocurrencies could block chain will still be used in the future. So all this time and resource at they're putting into it will actually help in the future when it comes to auditing blockchain proper. They believe that for example, some companies may end up issuing their own private blockchain because Brooklyn can be used to sort of shed encrypted data on anything for medical records to money between companies in a secure and streamlined fashion. So the big four no stranger to reputational risk. What are the particular risks of getting involved with this Nessin industry? So as you mentioned there is a reputational risk, particularly around the money laundering piece. So because of the anonymity of food. Needed to those holding cryptocurrencies at has been linked to crime and money laundering. Also, that's the fact that as yet, there's no global standard, and there's no sort of global regulation for cryptocurrencies. So there's not a clear way in which they should be valued. They should be audited. Whether they even count as an asset so auditors themselves having to come up with ways to value the assets and to account for them. And finally there quite nuanced as assets that very prone to sort of wild swings and prices on exchanges vary from exchange to exchange. So it's really a very immature market at this stage. Well, thank you enough for updating us on that story. I think one thing we can agree on his now the big four or involved cryptocurrencies are decidedly less cool. I'm not joined by Nick Magor, retail banking. Correspondent talk about Brexit blues at Arby s so what has been doing that makes us stink them more nervous about Brexit, perhaps than other UK banks. Well, there's been quite a lot going on in the last week. I was last Friday that they reported that third quarter results as most of the big banks. Did that week? The unlike the rest of them, although the underlying results achy, pretty solid. There was a lot of attention on a hundred million pound impairment charge to the Bank put aside to deal with expected losses that it linked to economic uncertainty, which everyone knew what they were talking about in this case, partly this is a technicality in the sense that it's to do new accounting rules called high afforest nine which force banks to recognize loan losses.

Marketplace's Kimberly Adams reports demanding consumers want a lot of tech in their new cars, turn by turn navigation music, apps, voice, control. And they want those things to just work the right now, they're still is consumer sentiment that it's not hitting the Mark and says Kristen collage of JD power with experiences, like voice recognition.

There's also this idea around what are? We, doing. About oil and gas the, ethical thing about. Climate change but also just.

There you begin to see a divergence amongst the Europeans from the approach Americans are taken where you're seeing targets or also commitments, to emissions reductions across all of their impacts companies like shell companies like turtle and obviously investors are heavily engaged we've been engaged longtime but you're starting to see that shift. Here we can see that crossed the whole oil and gas sector. And we're willing to use. All.
