Earlier this year, President Donald Trump launched verbal attacks against the city of Baltimore. He denigrated the city, especially Rep. Elijah E. Cummings’ district, as being a “rodent infested mess.” This attack did not sit well with many- including Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank.
Apparel and footwear brand Under Armour is headquartered in Baltimore. Kevin Plank started the company, ran it from his grandmother’s basement, and built it up into the multi-billion-dollar brand that it is today. The city has been the base for Under Armour for 21 years, and it is where Kevin Plank grew to billionaire status.
Just as the city has been good to Under Armour, the company has been good to the city. Under Armour is responsible for providing nearly 1,900 jobs in Baltimore, which makes the company one of the city’s largest employers.
When the President launched the attack via Twitter, Kevin Plank joined others in condemning the attacks. However, he did so without mentioning Trump. Instead, he shared a video on Instagram that highlighted everyday life in the city.
The narration of the video encourages viewers to rise up together. It calls for unity, and it ends with the message, “Imagine what happens when we decide we will do more for Baltimore.” The hashtag link included with the video is for the company’s #WeWill campaign, which promotes the idea that sports can change the world in positive ways.
The attack on Baltimore is not the first time that Kevin Plank has stood up against Trump. After the President failed to condemn white supremacists in the wake of violent protests in Charlottesville, VA during which Heather Heyer was murdered in a deliberate car attack by a neo-Nazi, the Under Armour CEO was one of three businessmen who left the White House’s Manufacturing Jobs Initiative in protest.

As technology continues to thrive, there is one dilemma that has been created by the advent of new technologies. Every time a new technology is released, it is the sole responsibility of the human workforce to adapt to the new changes. Therefore, with every new technology, there is a disruption in the way we are used to completing our daily tasks (Medium).
In the workforce, new technologies are seen as a threat, since they can take up some of the roles that used to be performed by human beings. One field that is experiencing a lot of changes due to the influence of modern technologies is accounting. To understand how technology has influenced and will continue to influence the accounting field, we look at the advice of longtime accounting and auditing expert Dabie Tsai.
Looking at the professional experience of Tsai, one is left without a doubt that her advice should be taken seriously. For 23 years, she has worked for KPMG, one of the largest and prominent firms in the world. She has significant experience dealing with SEC Periodic and IPO filings for both domestic and foreign registrants, SOX 404 controls and processes, and US GAAP and IFRS. While at KPMG, Tsai has worked in four countries located on different continents. She has therefore developed international experience in this field and also developed the ability to speak in multiple languages.
The Power of Computing
Since the introduction of computers, the field of accounting has experienced consistent changes. In fact, it is almost impossible for anyone to work in the field without mid-level competency on computing. It has become an integral part of the industry, and it will only become more advanced as we move into the future. According to Dabie Tsai, the influence of artificial intelligence will also influence the future of the industry as machine learning algorithms take up some of the lower-level tasks completed by the human workforce. Although it will bring some accuracy and efficiency in the processing of data, artificial intelligence might be a risk to businesses and human workforces that refuse to comply with the changes. However, she is hopeful that the application of new technologies in the field of accounting will not take up roles meant for the human workforce. She advises professionals in this field to consider taking up more advanced tasks that cannot be completed by machines.
Dabie Tsai also sees a future where the role of leadership in organizations will become highly competitive. With machines taking up some of the roles performed by the human workforce, it will be up to the leaders of these organization to ensure that there are proper plans and strategies aimed at achieving the intended goals.

The fast-changing world of finance is much different than it was 20 years ago. In fact, many in the industry will readily attest that the industry today bears little resemblance to the one that existed just five years ago. For the players in the game, the ability to understand industry patterns and trends is crucial to success.
The increased change in the industry is a double-edged sword as it provides many opportunities for success while also exposing investors to new risks that could possibly prove harmful.
As per brightscope.com, there is much optimism at this time in the industry as the data indicates improved metrics that should fuel overall market growth throughout 2018 and beyond. The stock market performed well in 2017 and it was the first time in history that a positive return was achieved every month of the year. The industry is hopeful that the market will continue to perform in a similar fashion.
According blogwebpedia.com, the policies of the Central Bank have also served to mitigate risk involved with the financial sector at this time as 2017 saw the Federal Reserve make increases to interest rates a total of three times. All indicators are that the economic climate is likely to precipitate a similar action in 2018.
However, after a low volatility year in 2017, 2081 has proven to be quite volatile. The year has seen 400-point market swings and is set to become the highest year for market volatility since 2008.
