Business leaders say Brexit already having negative effect

Business is already suffering from Brexit, according to some of Britain’s biggest companies, lending weight to a cross-party effort by MPs this week to avert the risk of the UK crashing out of the EU without a deal.

Despite a stream of positive economic data, an Ipsos Mori survey of senior executives from more than 100 of the largest 500 companies found that 58 per cent felt last year’s referendum result was already having a negative effect on their business.

Just 11 per cent found the Brexit decision had meant a positive impact while nearly a third — 31 per cent — thought it had made no difference to their company.

“Business in this country is already feeling the pain of the economic upheaval of leaving the EU,” said Ben Page, chief executive of Ipsos Mori. “There is no sign that this is likely to ease this year.”

In a report for the finance industry published this week, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP estimated that about three quarters of Europe’s trading of currencies and also interest-rate derivatives takes place in the U.K., as does half of the region’s fund-management activities. Lending from U.K.-based banks to EU companies totaled 1.2 trillion euros ($1.3 trillion) in the second quarter of 2016, about 9 percent of total lending to EU residents.

Quand le battement cardiaque vous sert de… mot de passe !

En se substituant au cryptage numérique, les signaux de l’électrocardiogramme pourraient constituer un système d’authentification crédible visant à permettre aux patients d’accéder à leur dossier médical.

Décrite dans un article signé par des chercheurs de l’Université d’Etat de Binghamton (New York), cette technologie authentifierait automatiquement l’accès à l’information médicale, en faisant correspondre les signaux cardiaques du patient – transmis à un dispositif portatif – et des signaux enregistrés au préalable.
