The world cannot wait. That’s the challenge faced by Thomson Reuters customers on every continent, in every sector and profession. And like our customers, we are aggressively pursuing the opportunities presented by such a complex, demanding and constantly changing world.

In the new global marketplace, mobile communications have erased the traditional boundaries of place and time. The interconnections of big data are expanding the scope of what can be known and acted upon. International commerce has moved beyond well-worn paths, flowing in new directions between regional hubs. Mirroring that evolution, regulatory frameworks have become vastly more complex and demanding, with little coordination among regions. And, in a familiar pattern, the sheer volume of information grows exponentially from year to year. (more…)

Journalist spotlight: Jeff Mason on being elected President of the WHCA

Earlier this month, Reuters White House Correspondent Jeff Mason was elected president of the White House Correspondents’ Association for the 2016-2017 season. Jeff will become the fifth Reuters correspondent to serve as president of the WHCA and will preside over the annual WHCA dinner in the spring of 2017. Jeff, who has covered the White House for Reuters since 2009, was the lead correspondent for President Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign and has been posted in Washington since 2008, when he covered the historic race between Obama, Hillary Clinton and John McCain. In a Reuters Best: Journalist Spotlight Q&A, Jeff offers an inside look at covering the White House and his thoughts on his own presidential election.

Q. How do you feel about winning the WHCA president seat, and what does it mean to you and to Reuters to be elected to this position?

A. I felt very honored to win the WHCA presidency. It was a flattering vote of confidence from my peers who cover the beat. I’m also humbled to follow in the footsteps of four other Reuters colleagues, including Steve Holland and Caren Bohan, who have held the position previously. Having the opportunity to serve will be helpful for raising Reuters’ profile in Washington and within the White House, which is a good thing. It also shows that an organization like Reuters has the clout to represent our media peers at a high level.

China’s food scandal – graphic of the day

Chinese regulators shut a meat supplier in Shanghai, a unit of U.S.-based OSI Group, following a TV report that showed workers picking up meat from a factory floor, as well as mixing meat beyond its expiration date with fresh meat. Today’s graphic shows a timeline of food safety incidents in China as well as a snapshot of OSI Group.

The World in 2025 – Type 1 diabetes is preventable

It’s human nature to want to know what’s coming. It seems fitting, then, that our IP & Science business, with innovation at its core, should also partake in leveraging its assets to forecast the future. The following is one prediction from our new report that features 10 innovation predictions for the world in 2025. Make sure to check out the entire series of posts and download the full report here.

A versatile human genome engineering platform is a reality, paving the way for the modification of disease-causing genes and helping to prevent certain metabolic conditions.

World-2025_pdf__page_10_of_28_Like type 2 diabetes, type 1 diabetes and other metabolic conditions such as muscular dystrophy will be preventable in 2025, but not by diet and exercise. Advancements in ribonucleic acid-guided (RNA-guided) engineering used for specialist sequence synthesis will be so much more sophisticated that a human genome engineering platform will exist. The pillar biological molecules of life on earth: RNA, DNA and proteins, and the roles they play, will be understood much more clearly in the next decade.

The in-depth operations of RNA, the main pathways from DNA to proteins, and proteins, the cell’s worker bees that carry out various catalytic and structural functions, will be demystified. The RNA/DNA process of passing inherited genetic information from one generation to the next will be clear. Increased knowledge of these biological pillars will make genomic-editing-and-repairing DNA a reality in humans, not just in bacteria and mice.

Also a reality will be the patenting of organisms and partial DNA segments, thereby complicating the landscape of who owns rights to what and where the line between nature and commerce exists. The human genome engineering platform will pave the way for the modification of disease-causing genes in humans, leading to the prevention of type I diabetes, among other ailments.

Waterside School empowers the leaders of tomorrow

Waterside School

By Kristin Mitchell, Events Manager, Thomson Reuters

Energized is the only way to describe how I felt at the Waterside Graduation Dinner. Thomson Reuters has been supporting the Waterside School for almost two years now, and this was my first experience interacting with the children. This event not only made me want to get more involved, but it also made me regret that I haven’t been more engaged sooner. (more…)

Regulation as a barometer of trust – graphic of the day

Data drawn from our governance, risk & compliance data and Thomson Reuters Accelus™ reveal that the level of regulatory activity worldwide has continued its strong upward trend globally this quarter, and particularly in the Americas. According to risk segment managing director Chris Perry, “it is clear that regulatory activity continues to accelerate and recent enforcements have in many cases seen record-breaking fines and penalties. Most recently the Attorney General of New York joined the financial regulators as fraud and criminal investigations widen. In this environment, the best defense is a strong offense – and banks are stepping up their compliance oversight and risk management.”

The second quarter’s 143 average daily number of regulatory alerts (up from 129 in Q1 and above 100 for the fourth consecutive quarter now totals some 17,800 to date in 2014, well on pace to exceed 2013’s total by year-end. Download the Q2 Trust Index.

Weekly Investment Banking Scorecard

deals intelligence

Eight deals over $5 billion were announced this week, setting the all-time record for weekly large-cap deal making and pushing the level of deals over $5 billion to $915.9 billion for year-to-date 2014, more than triple year ago levels. Accounting for 45% of worldwide M&A so far this year, large cap deal making in the healthcare sector (12), energy & power (8) and consumer staples and media (7) make up just over 60% of the number of announced M&A deals greater than $5 billion for year-to-date 2014

Co-creating a diversity manifesto at AudaCITY Talent Rising

AudaCITY

By Anyani Boos, Sales Representative, Thomson Reuters

I was lucky enough to join colleagues from across Thomson Reuters at the AudaCITY Talent Rising Conference last week in London. The conferences, hosted by the Lord Mayor’s Appeal, brought together delegates from a variety of companies to debate and discuss current issues related to diversity & inclusion.

Arriving in the crypt of the Guildhall was exhilarating and I got the opportunity to meet and greet people from a broad range of companies including EY, Aon, BNY Mellon and many more. However, it wasn’t only the venue that left an impression on me. (more…)
