"The national bank of Kuwait or MBK has reported an income for the third quarter that beats estimates. It came in at a 136.4 million dinars. That is a 45% year on year game. Meanwhile, operating revenue rose 20%, the deputy group CEO Sheik haba joins us now exclusively. I mean, when I look at a lot of the metrics, I see resilience, I see strength, return on tangible equity, operating profit. As we get to the end of the year, what is the one thing that you're focused on that is the top priority and should be for global investors? Yeah, what basically we have a lot of issues to focus on, not just one priority, a lot of priorities, basically our growth and different, let's say, markets mainly in regional expansion and Saudi and Egypt today wealth management and consumer banking wholesale banking and of course focusing on projects in the pipeline for your information, 39 projects closed this year. And it's about to around 5 billion dollars. And too many projects in the pipeline. So the focus basically would be on our normal business and as usual. Take a good to have you with us. So you talk about Egypt and Saudi Arabia to the prime growth areas for you, which will grow faster and you in the market to grow that organically, or will you do deals on the wealth management side? What's the strategy, organic, or maybe use some of the balance sheet for growth? Yeah, well, basically, organic and Egypt, it's a gross market, as you know, both Egypt and Saudi are gross markets for us. So as you know, the largest economy. So basically the focus on wholesale banking as well as management we have too many deals in the pipeline on both and basically and Egypt is there are a lot of challenges, but our focus is part of diversification. To focus on wholesale and now we are investing in retail as well. So we believe in these two markets and of course, as you know, the SME market is also another growth area in Egypt as per the direction of the Central Bank of Egypt. The Central Bank of Kuwait is not raising rates as fast as the fed that means dollar deposits are becoming a little bit more expensive, how does that translate into potential margin contraction for next year, sheikah? Yeah. Well, CVK tightened policy by less than U.S. counterpart, providing additional support for economic growth. We are very strong. We are very strong franchise bank. And get for a higher interest rate environment. So generally speaking, higher rates should be positive for our margins and profitability. That said, competition is amounting and is putting some pressure on assets and partially limiting the upside benefit. So for our business, our balance sheet across various locations are closely managed and. Has limited currency gaps, making the potential risk for our from currency movements relatively limited. But we believe that interest rates will continue hiking even in Kuwait. Post election what what's the most optimistic thing that you're looking for that will drive FDI into Kuwait? Because a lot of things were on hold because of their political dislocation. That's passed. What do you expect the alpha to be? Yeah, very good question. Anyway, the political landscape in Kuwait is slightly considered as complicated. But we are very, very optimistic. As you are aware, the recent lack of political distribution has posed some pressure on business. But lately, with the ongoing changes in the government and parliament and after its Tuesday's speech of The Crown prince, put everybody under pressure to push for the economic agenda. And we believe government is being shaped as well. And we believe that a lot of let's say political issues will be more stable and we will see a genuine commitment from all participants in the parliament and this will lead to approving, let's say that law, the mortgage law, we are very, this time. Let me jump in here just because I want to follow up on that in terms of the mortgage law, how does that feed into your view on credit growth and where is that strength going to come from? What have you put in as your base case? Yeah. Well, this will create great opportunity for banks and the mortgage law will have positive impact. On loan and credit growth in the market, so we are looking forward for this law to be approved already, I mean, with the parliament and this time, they have no other option, but to approve the more digital also opportunities are huge and I believe this time at we approved by the parliament. Okay. Politics and business are heady mix shaker. Thank you so much for being with us this morning. Shake out Al bah, and deputy group CEO. A little bit of breaking news on ABB pivot to Switzerland at ABB that forecast or the outlook for them, the guidance for them is a low double digit comparative revenue growth going into the fourth quarter. So that the guidance for them, but they've also given us the order and their margin outlook. Yeah, so a third quarter EPS comes in at $0.19. The guidance is that they're going to meet the 2023 target of operational EBITDA early. So on the face of it, these are encouraging results for investors, and that's going to be something. Are they going to have to look into? Okay, we'll pick that story up through the morning. Let's see how the market reacts on the open. Penny Moore had on daybreak Middle East. This is

"And in a comfortable position, you could say the same about Kuwait and Abu Dhabi. When we're looking for cracks and this is the key question, isn't it? In terms of where are the vulnerabilities going to bubble to the surface? It should be looking more at Dubai because I've been looking through the CDS. But on the metrics, I've been checking with some of the banks balance sheets. But at the moment there isn't anything. But where could something pop up? A significant drop in oil prices, any geopolitical unrest that might impact the region, but so far we are in the best place and we have been both Dubai and in the region in general, we have been in the ideal place if I may say. In the ideal place, which takes us then to inward investment into Egypt, we have this story Qatar and talks about two and a half billion into Egypt. So this is both a political goodwill gesture and at the same time you say it sets the stage for a different context of FDI and Egypt. Why would one off deal shift an narrative on FDI? It wouldn't be one of deal in my opinion. The IMF has been focusing on changing the structure to attract more FDIs. We expect more to come. And as you've mentioned from both the political and the support for Egypt perspective, so we don't want to change the narrative, but that would be the first of many. So what do they need to do with the currency? Where does it weaken towards? Because that's also going to determine your entry point back into a potential resurgence of the carriage rate. Absolutely. I mean, the IMF would like a complete float free field of the currency. Not what the IMF wants. What's in our response? I mean, ideally a free flow to reduce the pressure on the reserves, but having a free throw would have a big hit on the market because we don't know where it would overshoot and stop. Ideally this is what we would want. Practically, I don't think that it's going to happen. But there will definitely be a repricing of the currency. Dana was embassy, yes, he said that the full curve was being a little bit too aggressive and it wasn't going to drop. That aggressively. When you look at the Egyptian currency, who's driving that? Where's the flow that's driving that that's driving that currency at the moment that's driving our region as a whole at the moment? In Egypt, there are indirect capital controls previously. The FX reserves were controlling it. Now it's the efficacy. So now you don't have FBI anymore in Egypt. So once the currency reprices to 11 that international investors see as fair value, that would bring back effects and support the currency even further. Okay. Janet, thank you so much.

In New York, the United Nations Security Council is scheduled to vote on a U.S. Albanian proposed resolution condemning Russia's referendums on the four mostly occupied territories of Ukraine as Linda fasoo tells us Western countries have described the referendums as a sham. The draft resolution is expected to denounce the results of their referenda, urged nations not to recognize any change in the status of Ukraine and demand that Russia withdraw its forces from the country. A majority of council members are expected to approve the draft with the near certain veto expected from Russia. UN secretary general Antonio Guterres has said Moscow's effort to annex the territories is illegal, must not be accepted and would jeopardize peace prospects. U.S. ambassador to the UN, Linda Thomas Greenfield has said if the resolution is vetoed, it will likely be taken up and adopted as a non binding measure by the 193 member General Assembly, where Moscow doesn't have veto power. You're listening to NPR news. From wbab E. News, in Atlanta, good afternoon. I'm Jim burris. It's four 32. Former U.S. president Jimmy Carter turns 98 tomorrow. Over Carter's lifetime, George's political parties and the coalitions of voters who support them have risen and fallen shifted and realigned, as WAB Sam greenglass reports. When Jimmy Carter ran as a Democrat for state Senate in 1962, there was no question which party would win. The Republican Party has not run a gubernatorial candidate in Georgia. At that point, at any point in the 20th century, the state had never voted for a Republican for president. Never, not even during reconstruction. So yeah, it's a one party state. UGA professor Charles Bullock says when Carter ran for governor a few years later, the sharpest partisan divide was within the Democratic Party between opponents of desegregation and more progressive candidates. Carter is the candidate of conservatives. The candidate don't desegregate. Now, Carter immediately pivots in his inaugural address and he stuns his support of his segregation, all got stuck in the past now. Voters now, what the hell is he saying here? It's not until the turn of the century that Republicans gain a foothold. The GOP wins first in the suburbs, driven by new arrivals to Atlanta. Truly in the 1990s, the Republicans would begin to flex some muscles, come 2002 with the election of sunny Purdue, it becomes a red state after that. By this time, the Democratic Party in Georgia is floundering. They don't have much money, their candidates don't do well. And since then, they began to balance back. Stacey Abrams, ideas, which really come into play, as early as 2014, where she starts saying, well, rather than trying to win back these Democrats who defected, maybe we need to go looking at other places for voters. Some of today's shifts are again happening in the suburbs. Now growing and diversifying. Last cycle Georgia elected a Democrat for president for the first time since 1992 and sent two Democrats to the U.S. Senate. As Carter approaches his tenth decade, the state is less and less dominated by one political party. Georgia is instead becoming a preeminent political battleground. Sam

"Of Kuwait's reported first half net income of 237.8 million dinars. The lender is saying that 48% of the increase was primarily due to lower provision charges for credit and impairment losses. Let's begin by deputy group CEO for the national bank of Kuwait. I mean, how much of that bottom line momentum are you going to be able to carry forward? When I use basically we are optimistic and we are very ambitious organizations. So we believe we will continue with the good performance. And I want just to mention that the net profit of $121 million or $395 million for the three months period and the June 2022 year on year increase of 58.6%, which is the highest quarterly profit on record for the group. It's worth mentioning that. And as I told you, we are focusing on our strategy and we have a clear plan on growth, so basically the strategy to increase revenues at profitability is ongoing. Our strategic minds shown are focused on diversification diversification and creating value for our shareholders in that respect. We are always focusing on strategic initiatives on the interest income front, our strategy to manage funding costs will continue to drive our revenue growth going forward in recent years. We became more active in capital markets and have successfully at very attractive. If I can, if I can just unpack this a little bit, share, just because there's a lot of information in there. I look at the inflation and Kuwait, and it's running higher than the rest of the region. How is that going to weigh in on the banks ambitions to deliver results? How is that going to sort of shake the boat this year? Yes, I agree. It's the highest inflation. It's not the high if you compare it to the rest of the world. It's driven by basically real estate and food. And as you know, Kuwait has the subsidies to support the nationals. However, the Kuwait economy is showing very strong signs of recovery post covered and business sentiment has been improving in recent quarters, although internationally there are more concerns now on the global economic outlook as a result of increasing geopolitics, political conscience and high inflation as other factors the situation in Kuwait is completely different. We believe the growth momentum will continue, as I said. But the higher oil prices definitely will help the I mean the growth in GDP, the expectation is to reach 8.8 percent. This will create opportunities for banks, as you know, there is a massive pipeline of projects that remain key to sustain the infrastructure in Kuwait and improve the scale position and facility to the country. Yes, that's something I want to pick up on, which is what's going to be the growth catalyst for the second half of the year. Is it going to be the mortgage law? Is it going to be a renewed push on terms of government projects? What's going to be the big deal here? Well, of course, number one is government projects. As I told you, I mean, we have a strong and good pipeline. We have projects in the oil and gas sector and oil sector and other initiatives. And the focus is basically that the government hopefully will pursue love projects through the private sector and this will create opportunities for banks as well as private sector. Regarding the most digital, it's a great opportunity for banks. The fundamental of the housing market in Kuwait along with the very young population requires the approval of the mortgage loan for your information. It is the only country without more goods low. So we also view the role over the banking sector to be eminent and central and supporting the government and securing that mechanism. So all what we need the approval of the lowest already there the parliament and the government as well. But as I said, the projects is the number one followed by the more digital due to the requirement of the actions. We're going to leave it there.

"Leadership and I retired in the United States Army colonel leadership is about making choices and setting priorities. And not territorial integrity, very important. I think in desert storm, the invasion of Kuwait was it was in America's interest to throw the Iraqis out of Kuwait. I was part of 7 corps that did that. I was a small and unimportant part of 7 corps where I watched trucks, but I was there nonetheless. On the other hand, here in Ukraine, yes, the Russians have taken Ukrainian territory, I still don't think it's important enough for Americans to intervene.

And you basically created that company and wrote the software, so it's going to be interesting. So before we do that, I really want you to go back to tell us about your experiences in the army. Yeah. It was a while ago. So I want to make sure people realize I got in in 1988. So it has been some time. And I'm sure things have changed a lot, but there's certainly things that are still, you know, whenever I speak with veterans, there's a lot of common stuff that we've all went through and not the least of which is just basic and they're getting started part. I had a pretty good experience in that I traveled the world. I went directly from high school to flight school, which was just incredible. And. Back in 90, when Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait, I didn't know that I wanted to be in a combat zone, but it turned out that that was a really also very fascinating part of my life, learn things about yourself when you're in that situation. And came back with skills that I'd never anticipated, having from a confidence perspective or just a can do or a willingness to solve problems. It was a wonderful experience. I had a great experience. And I was supposed to be in for a minimum of 6 years. I got out a couple of years early. I was only in for four years, so I was out in 92, and then I went to college. You went and you got an English in a history degree, I believe, from philosophy. English and philosophy English and philosophy, okay. Ridiculous degrees. Yeah. So probably fascinating and definitely personal improvement in definitely has its purpose, but not a whole lot of jobs coming out of college. Yeah, and that was a little bit of a struggle. When I went to college, I thought, you know what? I did the past four years doing what I was being told to do. And I was like, you know, I just want to just read books and learn about how to think, not what to think, which was where the philosophy came in..

"Then we have Iraq invading Kuwait in 1990 The Gulf War in 1991 the somalian Civil War in 1991 Then we had the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina from 1992 to 1995 There's just numerous examples unrest geopolitical strife in those moments It hasn't been easy to deal with them but if you maintain a long-term perspective let the uncertainty play itself out the closer we get to a resolution the market likes that And once again there's no way of knowing how everything will unfold here But when I spoke with clients around March April May of 2020 we all know what was going on at that point in time Unemployment claims just catapulted They went from one report to the next they went from 200,000 to 735,000 So this was late April early May I reached out to as many clients as I could And my message was this brace for impact because a big number is coming I don't know what it's going to be but it's going to be big And sure enough the very next report unemployment claims jumped from 735,000 to roughly 3 million Do you know what the market did on that day It went up 4% So it doesn't always work that way but this is why often in an adviser will say as long as you have a defined investment strategy you've already done your job That applies to this circumstance as well If you're out there wondering hey what are investors doing right now Well according to The Wall Street Journal and according to my conversations let me give you some insights here So in 2021 the S&P was up 27% According to Bank of America globally a $1 trillion was invested into stock funds stock ETFs Now that's globally That's not just in the United States That was more than the cumulative amount over the preceding 19 years That's a big number So now we find ourselves in 2022 and initially the market's pulled back I'm generalizing here by about 7 or 8% Well frankly that's healthy That's normal market behavior Now in the first 7 weeks of 2022 investors have pulled roughly a 180 billion out of cash and out of bonds and of that 180 billion 50 billion has found its way into stocks I think that's a smart thing to do It can be depending on your situation because it's not just about Russia and Ukraine There's a lot of other variables going on right now and you have to take into account inflation You have to take into account the fact that our economy the United States we're actually in a pretty good place right now We have the good fortune to be geographically insulated where economically insulated sold at you said earlier and rightfully so the Russian economy is not dynamic The United States economy is incredibly dynamic We have states that have a larger economy than most countries I think that the most important thing that you've said in the last few minutes was that in 2020 you picked up the phone you called your clients and you told them to brace for impact Right right And just making sure that whatever's going on in the external environment that you have a good understanding of how this influences or may impact your internal environment your personal economy and I'll say it again as long as you have a properly structured diversified portfolio you really don't need to do a whole lot Well if you're at a loss John if you are thinking maybe I don't know what to do next what's the next move Navigating volatility like this situation with Russia is exactly why we stress education so much with our clients It's just this sort of.

"Let's say you love the look of these floors. The tone is beautiful. And you want them to pop. What you're going to look for on your walls is a cool white. So a kuwait actually has blue undertones and blue and orange are opposite of each other on the color wheel which makes them complementary colors and when repair these complementary colors they look really good to our brain our brain kind of loves it but it also creates contrast because blue is a coup color. Orange is a warm color so putting them together creates a dynamic contrast. When you go with a white that is cool. You're going to kind of contrast the warmth in those orange floors. It's gonna make them stand out in it's gonna make them pop so that is an example of how you cannot just pick a perfect white off of a list you have to reference what you have going on in your space what you want to highlight or camouflage and then kind of ticked based on that and remember it is okay to flop with the first few paint picks get samples paint huge swatches and stare at them all day through different kinds of light live with them for a week until you truly know she want that is never going to leave you a stray if feel overwhelmed with the color theory and me saying complementary colors and what does that mean really living with it and that kind of hands on experience that is all you need but if you do want more you should hop over into my colored curator course that's about to launch or i walk you through all of the design strategies behind color you can learn them in.

I often you guys kick out the farms during due diligence in what are the main reasons is evaluation referred to water earlier. Is it something else. Depends how we define your diligence because the way it works is that it was sort of due-diligence Every step of the funnel by if we were to define it as due-diligence signing the escrow in putting in the deposit than not that often actually quite better we did have a demon q. One where already during the escrow. We found that the was until liking was too risky so we walked away but most of the times especially because of the tech that we use on farm satellite imaging experienced with developing regions when we do underwriting one time.

The Infinite Alchemy of Storytelling
"I grew up in kuwait in the early nineties where i was raised by screens. The main windows to reality for me or television and the internet not because of their accuracy because there were storytelling machines. These machines told stories that contradicted another but all somehow seem true. There bridge in new quick to be one of the leading voices at media specifically for comedy shows theater the rest of the world new kuwait to be a small country that was located between saudi arabia iraq and iran during the gulf war. Both stories are true. These creams i dragged my sense of reality from pulled me different than sometimes contradicting stories about who i am and where i come from. And that was the only way. I understood anything around me by placing it into different sets of stories when social media came around. It changed the way screens worked for me. It was only a window for observations anymore but interactive one. When i could use to identify everything around me in even more varied in multiple ways to know myself better actually participate in the storytelling process. It started with drawings. Mostly cross hatched on photographs. That i took with my iphone. With time i started to animate them onto videos that told stories from different perspectives in a mockumentary series titled bert lock. It consists of scripted interviews by imagined minority voices discussing issue or one of common interests. The title of the series is meant to ponder the idea. What if birds were watching back. What would they think of our obsession with speed and oil with. They think we were done for standing under the rain. The second episode for example is an interview with the little girl that tries to explain her definition of health where she says she wants to be like her father. Be strong smoke until children.

What are Frontier Markets?
"As i was doing the research. I was fascinated by the sheer size of frontier markets in terms of population. Two point two billion people. A third of the world's population yet the economic impact at this point is still small only about three and a half percent of the world's gross domestic product the monetary value of goods and services produced a third of the world's population produces less than five percent of economic output. This size of the stock market's even smaller frontier markets. Make up less than one percent of global stock market capitalization that's the size of the equity market as determined by the price of a particular company times the shares outstanding less than one percent. And there aren't even that many stocks there are three thousand stocks that comprise the msi all country world index which is both developed and emerging markets. There are fourteen hundred emerging market stocks yet in the mci frontiers market and xers only eighty one stocks the countries that comprise that in. And i'll just go through the list. Because i think it's helpful and instructive to know what's there is croatia estonia iceland lithuania kazakhstan romania serbia's slovenia other countries include kenya morocco. Area bahrain jordan oman bangladesh lanka vietnam the largest country within the index as measured by market capitalization or sizes vietnam. It comprises thirty percent of the frontier market index.

Naomi Shihab Nye Shares Why Kindness Is The Deepest Thing Inside You
"Naomi. shehab nice. Childhood unfolded between ferguson missouri. Near where her mother grew up and her father's palestinian homeland. Our conversation in two thousand sixteen spoke to so much that he's even more alive in the world. Now i always start my interviews by inquiring about the religious or spiritual background of someone's tighted and i just wonder where you'd start reflecting on what that was in your life all. I felt very lucky as a child to have open minded parents. And i knew they were open minded because they were unlike any other parents. I met my friends parents I also knew that they didn't practice the religions of their upbringings. Either one of them so this fascinated me as even a little child. And i would ask a lot of questions. There was no sense of a taboo subject on. My father had not really had a difficult time telling his family that he didn't want to practice islam. He said i will respect it. But i don't want to practice it and they had accepted that my mother's family on the other hand had been more hard hearted about her rejection of their german lutheran missouri. Synod background but this was something. Both of my parents. Talk about with each other and with their children. You know that people are raised in all kinds of different ways. And if it doesn't feel a meaningful to you maybe you have to search more. You have to keep searching. And i was a religion major in college. Of course you work. Because of my appetite for this topic and i was fascinated to study more about zen buddhism which appealed to me very much from the beginning and it seems like hugh became a writer at a very young inch. You're like seven six. I was six. When i started writing my own poems and seven when i started sending them out and And just today Some students i was talking to a skype class in kuwait. How much. I love the modern world that we can do these things. I was with these students for two hours. And i feel like i'm going to think about them for the rest of my life but one young man asked me. How were you brave enough to do that. What gave you the confidence. he said. i've been trying to run a publication here at our university campus. And i can't get my friends to give me their writing. They're not brave enough. What gave you confidence. And i think just having you know that sense of voice while other people have done it. That's what we do if you know words if you compose wanna share them. Because they'll have a bigger life if you do that so you know. I certainly wasn't thinking about a career. Just thought of myself as having a practice you know if you have a practice of writing then you have a lot of pieces of paper on your desk and you can share the if you chose to. And it seemed more exciting or illuminating. Share them and see what happened next than just keep for myself. So i'm very interested in general in this question of you know what poetry works in us but i think even that question itself hasn't holds the implication that poetry is something separate something distinct but it seems that in your sensibility. You see it. As very organic i mean there's i think it was in in some of your writing for poems by children. He said i do think that all of us think in poems i do i do think that and i think that is very important enough feeling separate from text feeling sort of your thoughts as text or the world as it passes through you as a kind of text the story that you would be telling to yourself about the street even as you walk down or as you drive down as you look out the window the story you would be telling a. It always seemed very much to me as a child that i was living in a poem. The my life was the poem. In fact at this late date i have started putting that on the board of any room. I walk into. That has a board Came back from japan a month ago and every classroom. I would just write on the board. You are living in a poem. And then i would write other things just relating to whatever. We were doing that class. But i found the students very intrigued by discussing that you know. What do you mean. we're living in a poem or win all the time or just when someone talks about poetry and i'd say no when you think when you're in a very quiet place when you're remembering when you're savoring an image when you're allowing your mind calmly to leap from one thought to another. That's a poem. That's what a poem does and they liked that and grow in. Fact wrote me a note In yokohama on the day that i was leaving her school that has come to be like the most significant note. Any student has written me in years. She said well here. In japan we have a concept called you todi and it is spaciousness. It's a kind of living with spaciousness for example like it's leaving early enough to get somewhere so you know you're going to arrive early so when you get there you have time to look around. Or whether she gave all these different definitions of what you tori was to her but one of them was an after you read a poem just knowing you can hold it you could be in that space of the poem and it can hold you in its space and you don't have to explain it you don't have to paraphrase it. You just hold it and it allows you to see differently. And i just love that i mean. I think that's what i've been trying to say all these years.

He added that microsoft believed at least a thousand engineers were involved in mounting the attack. How microsoft arrived at that figure is unclear. And while it's probably better to read a thousand as a lot and not as a rigorously supportable quantification of the human capital. Russian intelligence applied to the task. It is in any case.

A Quest to Extend Life through Early Disease Detection
"Joe thanks for joining us here. We're gonna talk about quenching. Its effort to use technology to detect disease at its earliest stages. And it's audacious goal of extending life by ten years within a decade a i. I'd like to start with the u. Quenching grew out of a a lab that iran uc berkeley You have a masters in economics and a master's in psychology. Your career began in the advertising industry. With w p p and omnicompetent. How did you find yourself working with artificial intelligence and next generation sequencing to transform medicine. Well in a way. It's the circus is closing. So when i was born. I was born into a household of scientists and my mom and my dad bio scientists microbiology Next plank bene- germany and my whole life. All the way up to nineteen was busy just biosciences. I heard it every every day. Counted always intriguing. Not intriguing enough to make me study medicine. Which goes of the wanted me to but i found other things also interesting is typically economics in psychology and so for the first nineteen years busy got the not just a crash caused very intensive course off mike about d by chemistry and so i was very familiar with a whole field then decided you know the other things too in the world that i wanted to explore the advertising and marketing angles more random because i was moving on the strategic side of things and from there i found actually even though i loved you know thinking about innovation and growth. Which was my my main objective. At these elijah marketing firms. I felt more drawn to a financial side of things in it's via transition more into kind of strategic planning and finance. These are very large organizations of it by their doing marketing. Also have wbz's in two thousand employees. It's not a small firm and from there you know i did some strategic acquisition things for them and they had gotten in touch with startups a lot and i decided i wanted to actually switch sides and doing do something much more. Entrepreneurial did this worldwide in the us young then the entertainment circuit beck abbas busy looking at different industries from more from an investment perspective and you know biotechnology became more and more important Starting two thousand fourteen fifteen because some sequencing confidence of sequencing innovation and a and cloud systems reach a critical mass that enabled you know something. That's amazing new age of precision medicine. And you know. I was looking had multiple industries but that really caught my eye and brought back these memories from my first nineteen years and i felt very comfortable jumping a little deeper in looking at different technologies and then by a series of coincidences led to the point where i realize now we are truly at this complete in point in medicine and biotech and then all these things came together right my my bio bake around my financial background in my date of bakery digital bitten finance and Ended was as perfect confluence of really liking biology and details of sequencing on the chemistry left side But also the combination with complex cloud systems artificial intelligence and of course business model innovation. Which was a part of my career. These ten years of graduating college Yeah there's all comes together in this would be the future of medicine. He was gone gene. And our ambitions goto extent you the human life span by ten years within the next ten years and dad's executive technology stack. You need to do that. You need biochemistry. Sequencing cloud systems ai in a deep understanding of business model innovation. The company as i mentioned has rather ambitious goals for transforming medicine. What's wrong with the practice of medicine today. It must be ironic. Miss you asking there. But i can. I can outline that. The biggest there are two things that are really wrong about what's happening today. And these two things resulted in you know. Hundreds of thousands of american lives being lost every year. Like talking about covid. This is a much much. Bigger problem in kuwait. Just has guesses so two things wrong. Unim- on the medically process sites that the feet of medicine still fundamentally follows. The idea that medicine is about treating disease treating symptomatic disease and when you get how people die today. What are the biggest causes of death. It's cancer it's cardiovascular it's diabetes and metabolic diseases in its new problems. All of these are chronic diseases. And all of these diseases cannot be dealt with on a symptomatic basis. You cannot wait until you have alzheimer's and then try to do something about it. You cannot wait until you have late. Stage metastatic cancer. It's just too late so the first problem is ed. Medicine is reactive and symptoms driven when it needs to be proactive and prevention driven and ought to get their many things. Have to fundamentally change Need to be data driven the level of precision foreside statistical understanding to be a higher by by many many many magnitudes. That's problem number one. And the problem too is the business model of health care And i'm in the middle of this right now because we also started doing cooler testing and god reimbursement and things like that.
