Gazing Into the Crystal Ball | Corporate Counsel
Ready or not, the changes are coming at an exponential rate. Swirling around and through the transformation of legal departments is a convergence happening in the broader industry. Three legal players—in-house counsel, law firms, and alternative legal service providers like Axiom, Elevate Services Inc. and UnitedLex—are mixing and matching people and services. Each group is jostling to become the dominant force in the industry.

The Apple Watch 4 will have a built in ECG — Quartz
The new Apple Watch is going to have more of your health data than your doctor September 12, 2018 at 02:28PM https://ift.tt/2N9cJlh

Apple announced the latest iteration of the Apple Watch, the Series 4, today (Sept. 12) at an event at its headquarters in Cupertino, Calif.

The biggest change to the wearable isn’t the bigger screen or thinner design, but the addition of an FDA-approved echocardiogram (ECG) that’s built into the device. This means owners of the watch can get hospital-grade heart monitoring in 30 seconds, with the ability to track that heart health over time and export the data as a PDF to share with their doctor.

With this new feature, as well as upgrades to algorithms that analyze other aspects of a person’s health like whether they’ve fallen, Apple is furthering its positioning of the Watch as a healthcare device. It’s a huge shift that allows Apple to turn some of the $500 billion enterprise medical device industry into consumer dollars.

It also fundamentally changes the dynamic between a doctor and patient. With such granular data about a watch owner’s heart health available, in addition to activity and exercise data, exporting health data is going to give a doctor far more information about a person’s daily health. Having all that data on the device also gives Apple the ability to act as an interim doctor in the future if it goes in that direction—it could suggest that you should go to the doctor if your ECG is troubling, or simply continue its quest to prod you to do some more exercise.

Apple’s ability to identify different kinds of falls by using the accelerometer and gyroscope in the device also suggests that, with enough data, it could begin to identify other health-related motions. What if the Apple Watch could detect when its wearer is smoking a cigarette, and tell them to stop?

The Apple Watch will be available to pre-order on Friday, and will start at $399.

What Goldman Sachs interns want: the 2018 survey — Quartz at Work
How does your world view stack up against a Goldman Sachs intern’s? September 12, 2018 at 02:14PM https://ift.tt/2p1Q6Rn

The very rich, as F. Scott Fitzgerald famously wrote, are different from you and me. But it appears that the aspiring very rich—say, the 3,000 college students who spent their summer as Goldman Sachs interns—are not so different from most of us.

The Wall Street firm’s annual summer intern poll involved interns in 35 offices around the world, covering college and graduate students from 496 schools in 55 majors. Because it was conducted internally, the survey avoided hot-button topics, or questions that might challenge Goldman’s idea of itself as a benevolent force for good, but it did provide a window into the views of the future masters of the universe.

In many ways, they’re surprising conventional in their outlook. Most (92%) plan on marrying or finding a life partner, and 90% want to have children. Nearly half (45%) want a pet.

They anticipate stable careers—93% think they will work for five companies or fewer—but they are ambitious: 64% want to start their own business, 50% hope to become a CEO, and 6% plan on entering politics. A starry-eyed 4% think they’ll be celebrities.

They primary pay for things with debit or credit cards (82%), while 11% mainly use their phones, and 6% still rely mostly on cash. Nearly two-thirds said they expect cryptocurrencies will become more prevalent.

More than three-fourths say the quality of future colleagues is “very important” when they consider their dream workplace, while 44% ascribed the same level of importance (“very”) to working somewhere with an important purpose. Both factors far outweighed the priority of working in a “cool/fun” workplace.

They were not asked how they prioritized pay. If given $1,000, 64% said they would save or invest it, and if they could pick just one thing to change in their lifetime, 40% said they would choose to cure cancer, making it a more popular answer than “equal opportunity for all” (30%) or finding a solution to climate change (24%).

When asked to pick a leader they admire, the top choice was Barack Obama. Others mentioned were Sheryl Sandberg, Steve Jobs, Nelson Mandela and their parents. Outgoing Goldman CEO Lloyd Blankfein did not make the cut.
