We expect a boost in global economic growth to lead to renewed confidence in higher yielding fixed income markets. This is good news for income investors - as Andrew Wells, Fidelity’s Global Fixed Income Chief Investment Officer, explores as he looks at the state of the global bond market.
By the third week of May we should all know the composition of the next government. Whichever party or parties assume power, the next government will need urgently to confront a demand resource collision that threatens the continued existence of the welfare state and of the NHS itself.
It has long been apparent that, as the House of Lords Select Committee on Public Service and Demographic Change made clear in 2013: "England has an inappropriate model of health and social care to deal with the needs of an ageing population ... By 2030 the number of people who are 85+ will have increased by 100%' compared to 2010".
The argument for greater coherence and integration of health and social care commissioning and provision is driven as much by considerations of coherence and quality as it is by financial necessity. As the Five Year Forward View has already made clear there may be ‘local choice between radical options', but not a choice between the maintenance of the status quo and a radical option. For NHS commissioners and providers (across all specialisms) the challenge is to grasp the opportunity to shape new local forms of integrated commissioning and service development.
The NHS organisations that survive and thrive in such a rapidly evolving and competitive marketplace will be characterised by proactivity, agility and their eagerness to embrace new forms of strategic partnership.
This Webinar will consider the specific governance challenges that will confront Boards and Governing Bodies in an evolving cultural context where, as Stevens recently observed, “my institution right or wrong is not going to be what’s required from the service’s new generation of leaders".
Please join Steve Ellis in this regular webcast as he looks to explain Fidelity’s Emerging Market Debt team’s views on why, in a low yield world and despite soft fundamentals, emerging market debt continues to offer an attractive income for an acceptable level of risk. The asset class has enjoyed a strong start to the year, with the supply/demand imbalance created by inflows and limited debt issuance leading yields to come in. This has resulted in an approximate 4% return for hard currency debt over the year to date. Local currency sovereign debt currently yields around 6.4%, US dollar-denominated sovereign debt yields 5.7% and US dollar-denominated corporates yield 5.2%. This compares very favorably to yields on offer from various asset classes in the developing world; particularly when considering a significant proportion of this universe is rated investment grade.
Emerging markets can throw up opportunities where one might least expect to find them. Please join Steve Ellis in discovering where the market opportunities lie.
Microbiological methods play a critical role in ensuring safety and efficacy of drugs and biologics. Most microbiological methods are described in compendia and do not need method validation. However, rapid microbiological methods and other alternate methods require full validation. Due to large inherent variability and complexity of microbiological methods, there are challenges in validation of such methods. This webinar will discuss, ways of performing validation of microbiological methods, with a view to achieving regulatory compliance.
In the present study, a genome-wide RNA interference screen was combined with an extensive biochemical analysis and quantitative proteomics to better understand the regulation of the heat-shock response (HSR) upon thermal stress. The usage of an endoribonuclease-prepared small interfering RNA (esiRNA) library represented a simple and efficient way to perform RNAi with minimal off-target effects. In the screening experiments novel positive and negative modulators of the stress response were identified, including proteins involved in chromatin remodeling, transcription, mRNA splicing, DNA damage repair, and proteolytic degradation. The diversity of the identified regulators suggests that induction and attenuation of the HSR integrate signals from different cellular pathways and are rather multi-factorial processes than single gene/protein events. The modulator proteins are localized in multiple cellular compartments with the majority having their primary location in the nucleus. A protein-protein interaction analysis revealed a HSR regulatory network, with chromatin modifiers and nuclear protein quality control components occupying hub positions. These observations are supported by quantitative proteomics experiments, which showed specific stress-induced reorganizations of the nuclear proteome, including the transient accumulation of chaperones and proteasomal subunits.
Moreover, we found that the acetyltransferase EP300 controls the cellular level of activatable HSF1. This involves acetylation of HSF1 at multiple lysines not required for function and results in stabilization of HSF1 against proteasomal turnover. Acetylation of functionally critical lysines during stress serves to fine-tune HSF1 activation. Finally, the nuclear proteasome system functions in attenuating the stress response by degrading activated HSF1 in a manner linked with the clearance of misfolded proteins.

More and more investors are realising the advantages of factor investing and starting to implement its lessons not just as an afterthought, but as a top-down element of the overall investment strategy. A large percentage of pension funds still have a cover ratio that barely exceeds the minimum requirement and face funding issues due to the ageing demographics. To meet liabilities, pension funds are looking for higher returns while at the same time have less appetite for risk. Is factor investing the solution for the seemingly opposing challenges of risk and return?
If there is one thing that can be said about the threat landscape, and cybersecurity as a whole, it is that the only constant is change. This can clearly be seen in 2014: a year with far-reaching vulnerabilities, faster attacks, files held for ransom, and far more malicious code than in previous years.
Join us on 26th May, at 10:00 - 10:45 to understand the growing threat landscape and how this affects your business.
On this webcast we will cover;
•The main security challenges and trends in 2014
•Highlight how threats operate to allow you to better informed
•Key takeaways for executive / functional leaders
ISO 31000 was published as a standard on the 13th of November 2009, and provides a standard on the implementation of risk management. A revised and harmonised ISO/IEC Guide 73 was published at the same time. The purpose of ISO 31000:2009 is to be applicable and adaptable for "any public, private or community enterprise, association, group or individual." Accordingly, the general scope of ISO 31000 - as a family of risk management standards - is not developed for a particular industry group, management system or subject matter field in mind, rather to provide best practice structure and guidance to all operations concerned with risk management.

Accelerating Pharma R&D with Novel MS Applications for High Throughput Screening (HTS), Drug Imaging and Integrating MS and NMR data for high confidence structure verification of small molecules.
This webinar will introduce novel MS and NMR solutions and its applications in pharmaceutical research:
> NMR Spectroscopy and Mass Spectrometry are two fundamental techniques for small molecule structure verification. Bruker FUSION-SV - a new software solution for comprehensive fully automated small molecule structure verification – simplifies and accelerates the drug design and discovery phases in the pharmaceutical industry significantly. The new Bruker FUSION-SV™ is a software solution integrating high resolution accurate mass (HRAM) data and complementary NMR data, into one result - increasing significantly the specificity and throughput for small organic molecule structure verification. Synthesis chemists will get a prompt result without being an expert spectroscopist.
> Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) instruments are ideally suited for high throughput screening (HTS) in drug discovery. Not only speed, simplicity and robustness are the convincing arguments for MALDI-TOF MS but the inherent strength of a label- and solvent-free technique. The webinar will explain the technique and advantages of MALDI-TOF MS and present automation solutions for highest throughput and speed (less than 1 second per sample).
> Finally the webinar will describe how the MALDI technology is used for small molecule imaging when coupled to modern 7 T (Tesla) FT-MS instrumentation. Drugs and metabolites can be visualized and distinguished one from the other directly measured from tissue samples. These results can be linked with histological information derived from the very same tissue, giving new insights into drug action and toxicity.
Whether you are an experienced researcher or just starting out in your research career, you’ve heard about how important search engine optimization (SEO) is in today’s ocean of online media. You probably know that most researchers have concerns about how “discoverable” their work is amidst the global acceleration of research output in recent years and the increasing sophistication of search engines. Publishing in high-impact journals helps your work get discovered – it’s true - but there are also approaches that you can employ while writing to craft your work for increased online discoverability once it is published. Jamie Wielgus, Associate Editor, Health Sciences, Wiley, and Kris Bishop, Marketing Manager, Wiley, present on some of these techniques and the factors at work behind discoverability with the goal of helping authors take action at the writing stage to best position their articles to be found and read.
In this interactive 60 minute webinar Jamie and Kris will cover the following topics:
- The Abstract: What is it for? How should it be structured? Examples?
- The Title: What makes a good title? Examples?
- Keywords: How should authors use keywords to be found by readers using today’s search engines?
- Search Engine Optimization (SEO): Latest advice on SEO? How can research be optimized for search?
- Discoverability: Pulling it all together!
- Questions and Feedback
It’s easy to focus on how the GUI (Graphic User Interface), layout and design elements of your new application, and how it is displayed on tablet, smartphone or notebook. But what about the back end dependencies that too often limit the performance and user experience of newly released apps?
A recent survey by voke Research Inc. revealed that on average developers, testers and QA specialists require access to 52 dependent elements for development or testing, yet have unrestricted access to only 23 of these. That’s 29 constraint points that are fundamentally risking an organization’s competitiveness. Constraints such as response time, test data management and integration with 3rd parties can all impact the released application quality.
CA Service Virtualization addresses these constraints directly, by simulating the behaviors of out-of-scope systems, whether these are ERP (such as SAP), mainframe, databases or even third-party applications. It replaces fragile stubs and mocks with dynamic, robust simulations that accurately model the behavior, data and performance of needed systems.
Not only does this enable parallel development, it “shifts left” quality by allowing for integration testing earlier in the SDLC when issues are easier and less expensive to resolve.

With companies adopting SaaS applications more rapidly than ever before, the risk of cloud data loss has also risen. As many as 40% of companies that use cloud based applications have reported data loss since 2013, according to reports from the Aberdeen group and Symantec – but until cloud data disasters hit home, businesses tend not to prioritize cloud data backup.
In this BrightTALK-exclusive webinar, you’ll learn about the biggest cloud data losses of the year, and how to make sure they don’t happen in your organization.
2014 was a year pack with hacker attacks on payment card infrastructures but we’re not out of the woods yet. Dell’s threat research team have regularly observed new active pieces of advanced Point-of-Sales (POS) malware in 2015. Why so many retailers still soft targets? For cyber criminals, retail is where the money is. The possibility of spiriting away and selling thousands or millions of credit card details and chunks of consumer information is powerful incentive.
This presentation provides key findings from the 2015 Cyberthreat Defense Report from the analyst firm CyberEdge. Based on a survey of IT security decision makers and practitioners across North America and Europe, the report examines the current and planned deployment of security measures, including the use of threat intelligence. It also provides developers of IT security technologies and products with answers they need to better align their solutions with the concerns and requirements of end users.
