Elsevier

The American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG), the only nationally recognized US medical professional organization solely dedicated to improving health through the practice of medical genetics and genomics, and Elsevier, a global leader in research publishing and information analytics, are delighted to announce the January 2023 launch of a new gold open access, online only journal: Genetics in Medicine Open ( GIM Open ), an Official Journal of the ACMG. GIM Open will complement ACMG’s flagship journal Genetics in Medicine ( GIM ), also published by Elsevier, and is designed to meet the evolving needs of the global medical genetics and genomics community and expand its open access publishing options. Published under Creative Commons license, all GIM Open articles will be immediately, permanently, and openly available online for readers to view, download, share, and reuse. This will enable authors to more easily comply with funder and institutional mandates, even as requirements continue to evolve. ACMG’s decision to expand the breadth of its openly available content directly supports its mission to improve personal and public health through the clinical and laboratory practice of medical genetics; advocacy, education, and clinical research programs; and the safe and effective integration of genetics and genomics into all of medicine and healthcare. “I am excited about our new gold open access journal that will be available to anyone, anytime, anywhere in the world independent of financial resources or library access. GIM Open will be an international journal with a focus on medical genetics and genomic medicine including all aspects of therapy,” noted ACMG retiring Chief Executive Officer Maximilian Muenke, MD, FACMG, who led the development of the new journal. “It will be a trail blazer for diversity, equity, and inclusion from a double anonymous review process of manuscripts, to the Editor-in-Chief and an editorial board that truly reflects our society in the United States and around the world. We are fortunate to work with our colleagues Robert D. Steiner, MD, FAAP, FACMG, and Jan Higgins, PhD, ELS, from GIM and our publisher Elsevier on the start of this new venture. As a medical geneticist who thinks that genomic medicine is the present and future of medicine, GIM Open will educate healthcare professionals to contribute to optimal patient care everywhere.” GIM Open’s eminent international editorial board will be led by Editor-in-Chief Bo Yuan, PhD, FACMG, Baylor College of Medicine, an internationally recognized expert in the field. “I am tremendously honored and excited to serve as the founding editor of this new journal that will actively support open science for the medical, scientific and research professionals in a broad range of specialties who comprise our ACMG community,” said Dr. Yuan. “Collectively, members of the editorial board and I are dedicated to the rapid dissemination of high quality, authoritative and cutting-edge medical genetic knowledge both within and beyond the genetics community with the ultimate goal of improving patient outcomes.” Louise Curtis, Senior Vice President, Life Sciences and Social Sciences, Elsevier, commented, “We are extremely pleased to expand our publishing portfolio with ACMG, building on our collaborative partnership with this prestigious society that began in 2022 with publication of GIM. Launching GIM Open strongly aligns with our mission to help researchers and healthcare professionals advance science and improve health outcomes for the benefit of society, and we share the commitment to inclusion and diversity at the heart of this exciting new venture.” GIM Open manuscript processing will include rigorous double anonymous peer review, a rapid submission to publication decision turnaround time, and an expedited publication timeline. Detailed instructions for authors and information regarding open access and publishing fees can be found here. Manuscript submission will open as of October 25, 2022. Papers submitted to GIM may be considered for publication in GIM Open if deemed more appropriate for that journal. It is Elsevier’s intention to submit GIM Open for inclusion in the major abstracting and indexing services at the earliest opportunity. As one of the fastest-growing open access publishers in the world, nearly all of Elsevier's 2,700 journals enable open access publishing, including 600 fully open access journals. In 2021, Elsevier published 119,000 gold or pay-to-publish open access articles, an increase of more than 46% over 2020, making Elsevier one of the largest open access publishers in the world. Notes for editors About Genetics in Medicine Open ( GIM Open ) Genetics in Medicine Open ( GIM Open ) is an open access journal with a broad focus on medical genetics and genomic medicine including all aspects of therapy. It will have a strong emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion and will have a double anonymous review process for submitted manuscripts. Positioned as an official journal of the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) and the companion journal of Genetics in Medicine, GIM Open aims to be an international journal publishing research studies that advance the knowledge, understanding, and practice of medical genetics and genomic medicine for all continents. GIM Open welcomes submissions of Original Research, Reviews, Commentaries and Brief Reports in the areas of clinical genetics, cytogenetics, molecular genetics, biochemical genetics, reproductive medicine, cancer genetics, pharmacogenomics, clinical trials, population genetics, public health, genome-wide association studies, polygenic risk, bioinformatics, methodologies, clinical implementation, ELSI (ethical, legal and social issues), genetic counseling, and practical standards and guidelines.

Will These Streamers Benefit from Major Audience Growth?

QYOU Media

ValueTheMarkets News Commentary - More than 3 billion people around the world streamed or downloaded video at least once a month in 2020 according to Statista, with this projected to rise to 3.5 billion by 2025. A number of companies are seeking to take advantage of this huge opportunity. This article discusses the issue with reference to Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX), Walt Disney Co (NYSE: DIS), Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) and QYOU Media (TSXV: QYOU) (OTCQB: QYOUF). QYOU Media (TSXV: QYOU) (OTCQB: QYOUF) operates as a media company. The business produces and distributes content created by social media influencers, artists and digital content creators on television networks, satellite television, over-the-top media and mobile platforms. QYOU Media also manages influencer marketing campaigns for major film studios and key household brands. The company primarily operates in India, where it aims to take advantage of rapidly increasing adoption of smartphone and smart TV technology. The business has launched five entertainment channels aimed at the young Indian demographic through its The Q India brand. These include its flagship channel, The Q, which was the fastest growing channel in the entire nation last year. Viewers can watch these channels across a number of platforms, including QYOU Media’s free ad-supported QPLAY app, which allows users to tune into the company’s five different TV channels through smartphones or smart TVs. Now, the business is expanding beyond video streaming too, having just acquired a controlling stake in mobile gaming specialists Maxamtech Digital Ventures. With KPMG estimating that more than 420 million Indians are online gamers, the business will be hoping this move will spur further growth. QYOU Media’s Indian offering is growing alongside its revenue. Its most recent earnings update, which covered the three months ended 30 June 2022, saw the company return record quarterly revenues of CA$6.9m, which represented year-on-year growth of 163%. Adjusted EBITDA loss also saw an improvement in the period, with a 33% reduction in loss. Net loss did widen by 7%, but the company attributed this to the launch of new channels and programming as the business rapidly expands its entertainment footprint. Netflix ( NASDAQ: NFLX ) operates as a subscription streaming service and production company. The company offers a wide variety of TV shows, movies, anime and documentaries on internet-connected devices. It serves customers worldwide. Netflix is a company synonymous with streaming, having revolutionized the way in which consumers consume entertainment in their homes. The company’s most recent quarterly earnings showed something of a return to form though, with paid subscriber numbers climbing by around 2.4 million after two consecutive quarterly declines. Even so, the company appears to have been spooked by the decline and the rate of growth seen in the most recent quarter is still far slower than Netflix had become accustomed too. This hardship has led the company to move towards some sort of ad-supported offering, while also seeking to block users from password sharing. These moves will bolster existing revenue streams and add a new one as the business faces increasing pressure from competition. New subscribers could be attracted to the service by an upcoming cheaper $7 per month offering, which includes around five minutes of advertising per hour of programming. However, the success of this significant change in the business’ model is yet to be determined. Walt Disney Co ( NYSE: DIS ) operates as an entertainment and media enterprise company. The company's business segments include media networks, parks and resorts, studio entertainment, consumer products and interactive media. The business serves customers worldwide. Another major player in the streaming landscape, with its Disney+ offering reaching 221 million subscribers in its most recent quarterly results to make Walt Disney Co the biggest streamer in the world. The enormous growth of its streaming service has propelled major revenue growth for Walt Disney Co, with revenues climbing by an impressive 26% compared to the same quarter 12 months prior. However, analysts have warned that the service could lose as many as 20 million subscribers in South Asia after it failed to secure the rights to the Indian Cricket Premier League. Vivek Couto, executive director of Media Partners Asia, told Bloomberg: “IPL drives customer acquisition. It’s regarded as entertainment not just sports by Indian households - women and men.” Perhaps this is part of the reason behind Walt Disney Co’s decision to follow some of its competitors in creating an ad-supported subscription offering, while also hiking the price for viewers who want to enjoy Disney+ without commercials. Jeff Bezos’ Amazon ( NASDAQ: AMZN ) is an online retailer that offers a wide range of products. The company’s products include books, music, computers, electronics and numerous other products. The business offers personalized shopping services, web-based credit card payment and direct shipping to customers. It also operates a cloud platform offering services globally. Having made a name for itself in the world of ecommerce, Amazon entered the video streaming fray all the way back in 2006. The service has grown significantly, with its popularity bolstered by the fact that subscription includes faster ecommerce delivery options, as well as ebook, music and grocery shopping services. But the company’s streaming service appears to be building its own successful niche within this array of services, with Prime Video shows securing 30 Emmy nominations during the company’s last full quarter. Most recently, Amazon has been making entertainment news headlines with its Lord of the Rings prequel show The Rings of Power. The fantasy series, which has been promoted through an enormous deluge of marketing, reportedly cost as much as $1bn to produce. Millions initially tuned in to the show but reaction from audiences has been mixed, with some reviewers comparing the show unfavorably with Peter Jackson’s film adaptations of Tolkien’s Middle Earth world or fantasy TV peer House of the Dragon. This could indicate that the show may not drive subscriber growth as much as Amazon had been hoping.

Crypto Investing: Is It Time To Dollar Cost Average?

Caleb & Brown

This educational guide exploring How To Protect Crypto Assets in a Bear Market was created in conjunction with Caleb & Brown and Benzinga. Caleb & Brown is the world’s leading cryptocurrency brokerage. Learn more here. With so much diversity in the ways successful investors have made their fortunes on Wall Street, it is hard to come to a consensus on what comprises sound investment advice. What appears to be excellent advice to a value investor, for example, may be considered a death sentence to a growth investor. Similarly, some practices that day traders consider sacred could never be replicated by swing traders. Despite the countless and contrasting opinions, there’s perhaps one idea that most successful investors would agree on: To be a successful investor, you often have to exhibit behaviors that go against human nature. For value investors, this could mean holding onto losing positions while waiting for economic conditions to improve. For growth investors, this could mean cutting losses immediately when a stop is triggered. For traders, it could mean buying as the stock has made a new high instead of waiting for “bargain” prices (William O’Neil is famous for advocating this behavior in his book ‘How To Make Money in Stocks’). These activities are all difficult because they go against human instincts. It is not instinctive to accept being wrong with grace, to patiently wait for opportunities to arise while watching others play, or to buy a product you could have gotten cheaper at another time, but successful traders exhibit these behaviors all the time. In the world of value investing, one such behavior is dollar-cost averaging, and one of its biggest proponents is billionaire business magnate Warren Buffett. What Is Dollar-Cost Averaging? Dollar-cost averaging (DCA) is the practice of systematically investing equal amounts of money at regular intervals, regardless of the price of the asset. This method is championed by value investors, like Warren Buffett, who choose to invest in companies that meet certain fundamental criteria and bet on them long-term. DCA can lower the overall impact of price volatility by decreasing the investor’s average cost per share and avoiding the risky and stressful game of bottom-hunting. Consider the following example: Hal purchases 100 shares of XYZ Company at $10. As XYZ Company drops to $9, Hal purchases another 100 shares. At $8, Hal purchases yet another 100 shares. At this point, Hal holds 300 shares of XYZ Company at an average price of $9 (8+9+10)/3). If the stock rises to $9, Hal will be breakeven on the trade, while an investor who simply purchased 100 shares at $10 will be down $100. Continuing the example above — if Hal continues to buy shares as XYZ Company oscillates between $8 and $10, and then XYZ Company rises to $15, the investor will suddenly have a significantly larger profit than the investor who placed a one-time purchase at $10. Thus, DCA also allows investors to accumulate substantial positions, potentially at a cheaper average price. The two most important factors of DCA are the conviction in the asset the investor is dollar-cost averaging into and the time horizon they have set for the DCA process. Many professionals advise investors to DCA into the most secure investment vehicles like the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSEARCA: SPY) or the Nasdaq Composite Index (INDEXNASDAQ:.IXIC) over an extended period of time — usually five to 10 years. A finding by Official Data shows that dollar-cost averaging $100 per month into the S&P 500 from 1900 to 2022 would have yielded about $7.6 million. Because of its ease and simplicity, DCA has been hailed by many as a default mode of wealth generation. Warren Buffett famously says, “If you like spending six to eight hours per week working on investments, do it. If you don’t, then dollar-cost average into index funds.” Considerations In A Bear Market With 2022’s bearish stamp on the equities and cryptocurrency markets, investors may be wondering whether it’s an appropriate time to start their own DCA streams. It should be noted that while DCA could reduce volatility and help investors build for the future, each person’s risk tolerance is different. The best practice for those who do not call finance a profession is to consult a professional as to whether this is the best course of action for you. Luckily, several traditional equities brokerages and banks like Toronto-Dominion Bank (NYSE: TD) and Interactive Brokers Group Inc. (NASDAQ: IBKR) provide DCA options. As the world’s leading cryptocurrency brokerage, Caleb & Brown also offers investors insight into the DCA process with a specific and expert focus on the cryptocurrency space. If you’re planning on investing in Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) or any other cryptocurrency in the 2022 market and you’re considering DCA as a potential strategy, head over to Caleb & Brown and connect with your very own personal broker.

Let The Experts Guide You Through Crypto Winter

Caleb & Brown

This educational guide exploring How To Protect Crypto Assets in a Bear Market was created in conjunction with Caleb & Brown and Benzinga. Caleb & Brown is the world’s leading cryptocurrency brokerage. Learn more here. 2022 has proven a challenging year for cryptocurrencies and equities so far. At the time of writing, the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSEARCA: SPY), Nasdaq Composite (INDEXNASDAQ:.IXIC) and SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (NYSEARCA: DIA) have declined by 25%, 35% and 20%, respectively, from their 2021 highs. Cryptocurrency has mirrored these declines, albeit with greater intensity. The Bitcoin (BTC) price has come down to a low roughly 75% off its all-time-high, and Ethereum’s (ETH) price has declined to a low ~82% off its all-time-high. Altcoins like Solana (SOL), Polygon (MATIC) and Dogecoin (DOGE), all of which were stellar 2021 performers, have been dragged in the tracks left by their larger market cap counterparts, seeing their prices decline approximately 87%, 72% and 90% since their 2021 highs. A report by IMFBlog, a blog on economic and financial insights run by the government-backed International Monetary Fund (IMF), concludes, “There’s growing interconnectedness between virtual assets and financial markets,” leading many to believe that while poor macroeconomic conditions persist, cryptocurrencies will likely remain in their dire state. Despite what the headlines may suggest, there’s no need to panic. Volatile periods are typical in the crypto market. What’s important in these periods is to protect mental and financial capital and avoid catastrophic behaviors. For Caleb & Brown, the world’s leading cryptocurrency brokerage, helping investors navigate the complexities of buying, selling and swapping cryptocurrency is a core function of their business. Through their personalized broker service, investors gain access to experts with a wealth of experience in navigating crypto markets. What’s more: Caleb & Brown’s brokers are available 24/7, ready to discuss every concern, idea or speculation. Whether you’re mapping out a hedging strategy, considering dollar-cost averaging (DCA) or aiming to learn more about cryptocurrency in general, C&B’s brokers can guide you through it all. Using Key Indicators And Performance Road Maps As Guides Like Coinbase Global Inc. (NASDAQ: COIN) and Interactive Brokers Group Inc. (NASDAQ: IBKR), Caleb & Brown provides top-of-the-line brokerage services at affordable rates and exceptional speed. Unlike its two counterparts, however, Caleb & Brown prides itself on providing a personal touch to its brokerage services for crypto beginners and sophisticated investors alike. This allows the company to help investors understand the market and their own goals so they can determine an investment strategy. For example, through consultations with brokers, Caleb & Brown will allow investors to: Appropriately diversify their crypto portfolios based on their risk tolerance Seek education about altcoins and learn about their risk and reward potentials Use key indicators, like all-time highs and market dominance, to tailor a strategy and time horizon for future returns Protect their gains by making sure risk is well-managed and hasty decisions are avoided As opposed to being a platform where one simply executes trades, Caleb & Brown’s personalized experience creates an environment for investors to upskill, learning about key investing concepts, such as risk management, and wealth-building concepts with a broker by their side. Speaking on this topic, the company says on its website, “We say it as it is, investing in crypto is not always smooth sailing. That’s why we exist, to help you navigate the complexity and reduce the risk, so that you can capitalize on this transformative asset class and build a better future.” The End Of The World? Contrary to prominent news headlines, all is not lost. Bear markets and crypto winters are cyclical occurrences that provide a necessary cool-off period for the economy before the next bull run. Every bear market in history has replicated this cyclical process. Even Bitcoin’s recent 70%+ declines have been seen at least three times before, as discussed in a previous article. The market can be a noisy and confusing place, but it doesn’t have to be. Enjoy peace of mind thanks to the education and personalised service of Caleb & Brown’s crypto brokers here.
